/%/V ?«/v » B. BOARD A1TD COMPA1TT We are often asked the question : How is it I can buy my Drapery and Clothing lrom you so much cheaper than at any other house? You must sell with very small ?r° Our reply is so simple, that none can fail to see its force : We buy for cash, and cash only, thus we save oar discount, and this is our profit; sotlmtour customers ^ are buying fetail from us at pfofij^ venNntfar'lh'e COST PRICEEoHhose who have to buy for credit .

MR. WILLOUGHBY AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
MR. WILLOUGHBY AT RICHMOND. Mr. J. P. Wiiloughby, Protectionist candidate for the Hawkesbury, spoke from Mr. G. Cobcroft's balcony, at Richmond, to a crowd of about 400 on Tuesday evening. He received a very fair re ception, Mr. H. Cobcroft being in the chair. Mr. Wiiloughby said this was the third time he had spoken in the electorate, and each time he had been received with every consideration ant4 courtesy. It was the boast of the English people that they always gave fair play, and this accounted in no small measure for their greatness. He had been told that that part of the district was a stronghold of hreetrade, but he had not found it so. He stood on the Protectionist platlorm, and he, believing that the cause was right, endeavoured to promulgate its doctrines. Protection should be the Cause of this colony, as it had been the Cause of England. This colony scarcely knew its strength, and its future could only be guaged by America. 100 years ago, America, which now had 00 million...

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
WHAT WE HEAR. That the proceedings on nomination day both in Windsor and Richmond were very lively. That a certain candidate remarked that it was said he had no stake in the Borough, but he found that those who had a stake generally got a lot of money expended in the locality where it was situated. That at Richmond Mr. Willoughby advised his hearers not to drink colonial beer. " All right," said a man in the crowd; " we'll have some Foster." " You ought to be careful, as Parkes might enter an action against you and take the old horse," shouted a man oh Tuesday night, after Mr. Willoughby had been referring to some action of Sir Henry's. That Mr. Harry M'Quade was in town this week. That the trustees of Wilberforce Common are not afraid of the action taken against them by their opponents. They in the first place require it to be proved that there are any encroachments on the Common at all, and if it is so, want to know what harm is being done by the poor people there. That the Taylor...
ART & LITERATURE [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
ART & LITERATURE The British public is declared to have an inexhaustible thirst at the present time for books on political economy. Witlln six months 158,000 copies of the shilling volumes of Carlyle's works have been sold by the London publishers. Prince Eugene of Sweden and Norway has resumed his painting lessons in Paris. He lias his visiting cards engraved with the words * Eugene Bernadotte.' A well-know Englishwoman has come to the conclusion that the work of Byron,Shelley and Keats are not sufficiently studied by her own sex, and she has set apart a considerable sum of money, producing a substantial in come that is to be devoted to prizes for essays on the works of those poets. Trustees have been appointed to administer this fund.
Literary Immortality. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Literary Immortality. Professor Seely discusses the question of literary immortality. He shows that the chances of any man's work becoming a per manent classic is greatly reduced. Inferior Latin and Greek authors live, owing to excep tional causes. The choas of Europe, after the -Latin classics were written, put out and prevented all literary production for a thou sand years. This made of them monuments of a lapsed civilization. They were greedly caught , up, as one catches a lost thread in a labyrinth. Ever since the' Revival of Learn ing ' they have held their place in our schoole. But the immortality of Ovid and Horace is waning. Seely allows the probability of two or three immortals in a century-as ?Goethe and Hugo for our own. The rest must be content to be evanescent. * However much I may admire Gaorge Eliot, I cannot imagine that a hundred years hence people will fiud time to read 'Middlemarc. ' But Tennyson, the pofessor thinks, may be read in pad;.
Why don't God kill the Devil? A BOY'S QUESTION AND A MAN'S ANSWER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Why don't God kill the DevilP A BOY'S QUESTION AND A MAN'S ANSWER. I. " Wliy don't God kill the Devil ?" her dear boy Once asked his dear Mama. Mama didn't know, But hemmed and said : you're young, my boy, J and so I'll tell you, when you're bigger grown, my boy. My boy he had a curious-puzzling brain, More metaphysical much than his Mama. And thought there's no one wiser than Papa; If I try him, I shall not try in vain. " Papa, why don't God kill the Devil ?"-a queer Question to ask, but, if you needs must know, I'll do what best I can to make it clear ; God spares to give the flend the mortal blow For this wise cause, that you may have the joy, To kill him for yourself, some day, my boy. II. But what's he like, Papa, this Prince of Hell, That I may know him when I cross his figure ? Has horn and tail ? of brimstone does he smell And has a skin like any Africk nigger ? Ob, he has many shapes, statesman or priest To prop a crazy throne, or hurl a ban ; Where big-wigs gather he is no...

These, when caught in the glass, may be seen to dissolve in the smoke. In the course of three days a patient entirely recovers.

Told by the Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Told by the Teeth The shape and placing of the teeth are not without significance in the character given by the mouth. When the upper gums show above the teeth directly the lips are opened, it is a sign of a cold and phlegmatic nature. Short small teeth are held by the phys , life, while ratlior long teeth, if ovenly set in the head, denote long life. The more the toeth in point, size, shape and arrangement approach to those oi the carnivorous animals, the more violent are the animal instincts in the person: while the more human teeth in shape the poaition approach to those of the graminivorous animals, the more placid is the character. White medium-size and evenly set teeth, which are soon as soon as tho mouth is open, but which are entirely exposed-that is which do not at any time 6how the gum-are a sign of good and honest natures. Projecting teeth show rapacity: small, retroating teeth, which are rarely seen unless in laughter, show weakness and want of physical and moral courage...
How to Go to Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
How to Go to Sleep. It is now, I believe, writes a correspondent of the London Speetator, generally accepted that our conscious, daylight thinking pro cesses are carried on in the sinister half of our grain-i. e., in the lobe which controls the action of the righ't arm and the leg. Pon dering on the use of the dexter half of the brain-possibly in all unconscious celebra tion, and whatsoever maybe genuine of the mysteriss of planchette and spirit-rapping, I came to the conclusion (shared, no doubt, by many other better-qualified inquirers) that we dream with this lobe, and that the fantastic, unmoral spirit-like character of dreams is, in some way, traceable to that fact. The practical inference then Btruck me : To bring back sleep when lost, we must quiet the conscious, thinking, sin ister side of our brains, and bring into ac tivity only the dream side, the dexter lobe. To do this the only plan I could devise was to compel n.yjelf to put aside every waking thought, even soothing an...
Wholesome Stimulants—The Medical Record. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Wholesome Stimulants-The Medical Record. Milk heated too much above 100 degrees Fahrenheit loses for a time a degree of its sweetness and density. No one who, fatigued by over-exertion of body or mind, has ever experienced the reviving influence of a tumbler of this beverage, heated as hot as it can be sipped, will willingly forego a resort to it because of its being rendered somewhat less acceptable to the palate. The promptness with which its cordial influence is folt is indeed surprising. Some portions of it seem to be digested and appropriated al most immediately, and many who now fancy that they need alcoholic stimulants when ex hausted by fatigue will find in this simple draught an equivalent that will be abun dantly satisfying and far more enduring in its effects. ' There is many an ignorant, over-worked woman who fancies she could not keep up without her beer ; she mis takes its momentary exhilaration for strength and applies the whip instead of nourish ment to her poor, exh...
The Furious Woman of Wichita. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
The Furious Woman of Wichita. A "Wichita, Kan., woman took the law into her own hands the other day, and cffectiially raided a rum-shop in that town. She had given the liquor-seller due warning' that if he sold her husband any more liquor she would break up his place. She was as good as her word. As her husband did not return home at night, she armed herself with an axe, broke open the door of the liquor-shop which she found locked, smashed in an inner door and drove the bar-keeper from the house. In one of the room Mra.Elmer found her husband drunk. This infuriated her still more, and she broke the glass in the bar-room, all the windows and the furni ture. When she had completely wrecked the place she gave the drunken husband a few cufis, marched him home and adminis tered a first-class flogging with a horse whip.
Effects of Hasheesh. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Effects of Hasheesh I A. M. Field has recently recounted his j experience under the influence of hasheesh. He smoked the hasheesh until he folt a profound sense of well-being and then put the pipe aside. After a few minutes he seemed to become two persons; he was cons cious of his real self reclining on a lounge and of why he was there; his double was in a vast building made of marble, splendidly brilliant and beautiful beyond all description. He felt an extreme gratification and believed himself in heaven, Thia double personality suddenly vanished, but reappeared in a few minutes. His real self was undergoing rhythmical spasms throughout his body; the double was a marvellous instrument, pro ducing sounds of exquisite sweetness and perfect rhythm. Then sleep ensued and all ended. Upon another occasion sleep and waking came so rapidly that they seemed to be confused. His double seemed to be a sea, bright and tossing' as the wind blew: then a continent. Again he smoked a double dose, ...
