A Dying Race. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

A Dying Race. Professor Vircliow, who has lately returned from Egypt, charges Islamism with the slow but certain destruction of every race over which it holds sway. The condition of the women is, he declares, so unhealthy that their offspring necessarily deteriorate from genera tion to generation. The veil, which is worn by every Mahommedan woman who respects herself, hinders respiration, the mode of dress hinders transpiration, and the manner of life -and especially the habit of sitting cross legged--hinders circulation of the blood. Scarcely without exception, says Dr. Virchow, Egyptian women are anaemic, chlorotic and nervous. They Buffer, moreover, from chronic indigestion and its immediate consequences ; and they generally have weak hearts and are subject to frequent fainting fits. But for the importation of slaves, he believes, the race would have already died out ; for even the Kopts of Egypt have adopted the Mahom medan fashion of shutting up their wives and daughters. Tiie ...

Non Mutamur. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

Noil Mutamur. We are very slightly changed Prom the semi-apes who ranged Prehistoric'Iiidia; Whoso drew; tho longest bow Ran his brother down, you know, As we run men down to-day. Then the^first of all his race Met the ihammoth face to face, On the lake or in the cave ; Stole the steadiest canoe, Ate the quarry others slew. Died, and took the finest grave. When they scratched the reindeer bone, Some one made the sketch his own, Filched it from the artist; then, Even in those early days, Won a simple Viceroy's praise Through the toil of other men. Who shall doubt the secret hid 'Neath the Cheops pyramid Was that the sculptor did Cheops out of several millions P Or that Joseph's sudden rise To comptroller of supplies Was a fraud of monstrous size On Pharaoh's swart civilians P -St. James's Gazette.

VARIETEIS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

VARIETEIS. Seeing the fine raiment that is conspicuous in many churches, and the evidently small contributions when the plate3 or baskets are passed, one is not surprised that a London preacher exclaimed: ' When I look at the congregation I say, Where are the poor ? When I count the offertory in the vestry I say, Where are the rich P Julious Eichberg told this story to Arlo Bates : 'Our teacher of singing,' said he, 'was at one time ill, and for a while I took charge of the classes. .One dap alady, some what advanced in years, came' to make arrangements for taking private lessons in singing. The results of my trying her voice were not particularly encouraging, and at the end of the second lesson I felt it my duty to tell her that her ear did not seem to me to be true. She received the remark very coolly, and at the next lessson went on singing as ever. ' I am afraid,' I said to her, * that you can never learn to sing in tune.' 'Oh, it doesn't matter,' she returned. 'Doesn't matter P...

POETRY. VIGNETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

POETRY. . VIGNETTE. The long waves wash the strand, the fog lies low, A. moaning wind soft croons along the coast, And, white and gleaming like a new-made ghost, The eeagulWiaps along, lieavy and slow, Then fades in the gray mist. Aye, to and fro The scented seaweed, twined around yon post, floats, falls, then rises, until we almost Deem that a mermaid calls on us to go And join her court. The earth, the sea, the aky Are one drear tint. Then round me as I dream Dead days arise, and hold me in their arms, .And whisper me : All men are born to die, And dawn is nought, save prestige of the gleam That kills our clay, e'en while it gilds her charms. -All the I'iar Ilotatd.

TALE. Faithful Unto Death. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

TALE. 4 Faithful Unto Death. CHAPTER I. It is the year of our Lord 1660. The little Plymouth settlement, mode up of unflinching men and devoted women, has gained a small but sure foothold on American soil. Rendered comparatively safe from the encroachments of the Indians on the one side and the Dutch on the other: by the league, offensive and defen sive^ which had been formed in 1643 under the name of the United Colonies of New England, they have set steadily to work to j establish cities and a government for them selves ; and after the first few years of depri vation they have succeeded in planting a small but flourishing colony subject to Charles II, who has just been restored to the throne of England. Since 1656 the Plymouth settlers have been waging a hot warfare agaiust the Quakers, and with their stern Governor, John Endicott, at their head, have perpetrated worse and worse cruelties upon them. Perhaps the un provoked outrage^ committed against this innocent society culminated...

MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

MAN. Before the beginning of years, There came to the malting of man; Time, witli the gift of tears ; Grief, with a glass that ran ; Pleasure, with puin for leaven; Summer, .with flowers that fell; Hemcmbrance, fallen from heaven, And Madness, risen from hell; Strength, without hands to smite; Love, that endures for a breath; Night, the shadow of light; And life, the shadow of Death. And the high gods took in liaud, Tiro, and the falling of tears, And a measure of the sliding snnd From under the feet of the years : And frotli and drift of the sea, And dust of the labouring earth ; And bodies of things to be In the houses of death and birth ; And wrought with weeping and laughter, And fasJiioned with loathing and love, "With Life before and after, And Death beneath and above, For a day, and a night, and a morrow, That las strength might endure for a epaa, "With travail ana heavy sorrow, The holy spirit of man. From the winds of the north and the south They gathered as into strife; Th...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

Letters to tlie Editor. Siu,-Would you kindly allow me spnce in the columns of your journal to make public a practice th.it is growing very common of lule, vi/. , | P few small-minded individuals imagine th it send ing a candidate for a municipal election is a Imge juice, especially so when they find a man who is in no way adapted for service in the Council, and 11lis was never more clearly depicted than in one of the candidates for Central Ward. The ratepayers should consider who is the m,m that will suit their interests best and vote for him accordingly. They should also vote for a man that has some imerest in the town, arid noi a mail who is here U: day anil somewhere else to-morrow, just as the tide of trade may waft hi'", and in my opinion Mr. Ward is the right man in the right place, he li 'ving a large interest in the ward in which he intend* to contest. I hope my fellow-ratepayers will rally round him and place him at the head of tin; poll, thus crushing these men who are al...

The Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

The Munioipal Elections. The polling for the three wards in the Borough commenced Friday morning. Owing to the rain, however, the number of ratepayers who ventured out was not large. The following are the re sults : NORTH WARD. R. W. Dunstan .. .. .. .. 62 G. L. A. Davies .. .. .. .. 55 Ward Gersbach Chandler F. T. Mortley J. T. Gosper CENTRE WARD. SOUTH WARD. The " Bulletin " says that Mr. Dibbs has officiated as the late Ministry's best friend, and has consented to extricate them, only half ruined, from the irreparable destruction which surely awaited them. The repulsion from the Parkes Administration was only in its first boil. A little longer and there would have been a boil-over. Mr. Dibbs kindly consents to lift off the pot. It is impossible that the new Premier is under the misapprehension that New South Wales looks to him as a saviour. If such be his idea it is one of the most serious amongst his continual blunders. Mr. Dibbs is in no sense the recognised leader of the Prote...

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

Riohmond News. (PROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) MUNICIPAL.-The- polling for the three repre-f sentatives in the Council takes place on the gtii (Saturday), when the the ratepayers will be asked to choose that number from the five candidates. Circulars, posters, &c., are now being distributed round town on behalf of the different seekers for municipal fame, and the war is already waxing strong. It is expected the fight will be a severe one, and of course two of the gentlemen must be rejected, but who the two will be is a matter of some difficulty to judge. Ex Alderman Perry was not present at the nomination on Tuesday, but his confrere, Mr. Cobcroft, asked the ratepayers to support him. The poll opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m. THE SPARROW NUISANCE.-These pests are beginning to be felt. The grapes are their latest failing, and I understand a large amount of that fruit in this part of the district has been destroyed. Some means will soon have to be taken to reduce their number. I...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

TOPICS OP THE DAT. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifferent good to either. The elections of the past week have created much excitement, and one fact has been demon strated, viz., that in the present contest there is no such cry as independent'. The " independent" man'is looked upon with suspicion, and generally finds himself pl&ced near the bottom of the poll. The " free and independent" electors in many constituencies are having a " bully " time of it, and many, no doubt, wish that an election would come every day in the week. The candidate shells out freely, the intelligent electors consume to excess of what Mr. Alick Bowman calls " that nauseous mixture, beer, -which is responsible for causing Bright's Disease," and the result is empty pockets to the former, and aching heads to the latter. Truly, the time has again arrived when, Gaily the candidate Seeketh the bar Where thirsty cizizens Come from afar, . Singing, " In search of thee Hither w...

The Burning of Allingsford House. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

Th e B u rn in g of Al I i ngs ford House. Allingsford House was not very old, nor was it particularly beautiful; at least, the late Allingsford House, of which I am speak ing, was not. But, on the other hand, the park was one of the noblest in England, and contained some splendid shooting. The ken nels also, at no great distance from thehouse, ?were renowned both far and near. The enormous trout caught in the Ailing, which ran tlirougli the park, were of ton mentioned in the Field and had furnished many a day's work to the local taxidermist. Add to this that the house was built of red brick and fully insured, and perhaps you will not feel very much horrified \fhen I ask you. to come with me and burn it, for that is what I to do. Remember what a godsend it will be to conversation at local dinner parties for the next six months. What a story for mine host at the Eagle in the village to tell for the rest of his life. Then think of the new quarry at Cutstone, which has just started wor...

The Coming General Election. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

The Coming General Election. Mr. Bowman addressed 200 electors at River stone on Friday night, and received a very good hearing. He, in the course of a long speech, made reference to the egg-throwing of the previous night, when Mr. T. R. Smith was struck, and denounced such conduct as cowardly. He announced himself as an out-and-out Freetrader, and charged Mr. Dibbs with being tyrannical and with having, at Narandera, actually attempted to intimidate several railway men who voted against a motion of confidence being carried at one of his (Mr. Dibbs') meetings. Mr. Dibbs, he asserted, had turned his coat just to get into office, and if the truth was known he was still a Freetrader at heart. A vote of confidence was carried, being proposed by Mr. Kent, seconded by Mr. Palmer. Mr. Phelps occupied the chair, and spoke very ably during the evening, being the recipient of a vote of thanks. On Saturday evening Mr. J. P. Willoughby spoke at Enfield, and was well received. On Monday he addre...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889

CHAPTEE IV. The hour, the moment, was drawing- near when Deliverance was to leceive her punish ment. At times her heart fainted within her as she waited her turn in the gloomy prison. The spirit may be strong to endnre all afflic tion for conscience's sako, and yet thero is a mere human, physical strength which perhaps is equally necessary to meet and overcome the stupid contempt of those who can see only the shame of the flesh and not the triumph of the spirit; the martyr's cross, but not his crown. And now they have led Deliverance out, and tied her to the lumbering ox-cart. Her face is concealed, for she has shaken her long goldon hair about her, and it ripples to her -waist. The most of the crowd stand in si lence as she passes by ; but a few ribald fel lows hoot aloud and call her foul names. At last the long walk is ended, and the people wait in silent expectation as the constable prepares his three-cord lash. One ! two ! three ! the cruel blows cut the tender back; a fourth, ...

CHAPTER III. I So Deliverance was married in the fashion of the Friends ; and there were not wanting venemoua busybodies (God pity them !) with slanderous tongues, who wagged their spite ful heads ana tried to besmerch the two young lives be slurs and innuendoes. But Deliverance vindicated her life by her chaste decretion, and her face was an irrefutable argument against evil report. For a time she was very happy in her humble home. But with the opening spring trouble began to darken about her life. It was not in the Puritan nature to brook Christopher's bold apostacy. His case was discussed at length in the church conclaves and with much bitter ness of feeling. One dreadful morning early in August tiie Constable appeared at.

After two weeks of sus | p&nse in jail he was sentenced to 'the House of Correction for three months^^ivith not I even a chnce for a parting word with his sad wife. Then a month later the fami...

The Sabbath, with its peculiar hush and peace, had dawned upon the the Puritan vil lage, wherein every man and beast had laid aside all work ; and now the sun was drop ping low in the west and faint purple shadows were spreading their filmy mantles over the eastern hills. Deliverance Sothwicke came lightly across the fields, with her ^Bible in her hands. She hummed a. good old. hymn tune softly as she-walked, and now and then stopped and drew a long deep breath of the tragant air. She had come from a gather ing of Friends, and her thoughts were busy with the subjects of the meeting. She walked more and more slowly until coming to a low stone-wall she sat down and opened her Bible to the theme of the afternoon service. It was that beautiful passage in Isaiah beginning. ' All we like sheep nave gone astray.' Tins one clause she read, and then, with one finger marking the place, sat gazing off into in finite distance. She was in of those rarely happy moods which come only o...
