DRAPERY and CLOTHING WAREHOUSE. S. BOARD AITS COlfifANT We are often asked the question : How is it 1 can buy ltty Draper}' and Clothing from you so much cheaper than at anjr other lions'; ? You must sell with very smnll profits! Our replv is so simple, that none can fail to see its force : We buy for cash, and cash only, thus wc save our discount, an 1 this is our profit ; so th.it our customers are buying retail from us al profits vi.ry near the COST PRICE of those who have to buy for credit Another question arises from this answer: Mow can you buy for prompt cash more than the oilier houses in town?

The Municipal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

The Municipal Elections. L;ist Friday we gave the results of the Municipal elections on that da}'. By some means the numbers of Messrs ('handier and Gersbach were transposed and a good many papers were struck off before the mistake was noticed. Below we gare the correct results: NOKTH WAKD. K. W. Dunstan .. .. .. ..62 G. L. A. Davies .. .. .. 55 CENTRE WARD. J. Ward .. .. .. ..79 J. Chandler .. .. .. . . 49 J. Gersbach .. .. ; ..36 SOUTH WARD. F. J. Mortley .. .. .. ..76 J. T. Gosper .. .. .. ..62 It will be seen that the polling for the North and South Wards was very close, and some excitement was caused amongst the ratepayers who gathered round the Council Chambers in the afternoon when the votes were being counted. On Saturday the official declaration was made by Alderman J. T. Smith, Returning officer, who declared Messrs Mortley, Ward, and Dunstan duly elected. He stated that he had received a protest from a defeated candidate against the return of his successful opponent, but ...

Death of Mrs. M. Coady. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Death of Mrs. M. Goady. We print the following from a Cowra paper, as it refers to a lady who was well known in this district-before she married -as Miss llart. "After suffering intensely from the severity of the frightful injuries received about a fortnight ago from burning, this universally esteemed and much beloved lady expired at her late residence, near Canowindra at about 11 o'clock on Sunday night. Notwithstanding the very serious nature of burns, the lamented lady for several days progressed most favuorably and stroiig hopes were entertained by her medical adviser and the members of her family that she would recover, but the in tense heat which prevailed during the greater part of last week had such an ener vating effect upon the poor sufferer, who had already, as may be naturally supposed, been reduced to a state bordering upon exhaustion, that she gradually sank and finally passed away on the date mentioned above. Jt is at all times a sad and painful duty to be called upon...

Windsor Borough Council. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Windsor Borough Council. Present: Aldermen F. J. Mortley, Smith, Fitz patrick, Marr, Ward and Dunstan. After the minutes were read, Alderman Marr moved, " That Alderman Mortley be Mayor for the current municipal year." He made a very neat little speech referring to Alderman Mortley's energy and desire to benefit the town. Aid. J. T. Smith seconded in a very eulogistic speech, followed by Aldermen Fitzpatrick, Ward and Dunstan. The motion was put and carried with cheers. The Mayor responded and expressed his sincere thanks Tor the honour conferred upon him for the third time. He confessed he appreciated this mark of their approbation very much, for it was the kind of moral support that he wanted in such trying moments as he had experienced lately. However, he would en dea rou r to serve the ratepayers as faith fully this year as in the past, and so farther win their esteem. An adjournment was then made to the Exchange Hotel, where gold-top was discussed and the following toasts propo...

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

POPULAR SCIENCE. e A Chicagoan has invented a now calculat ing machine which will add, subtract, multi i ply or divide with accuracy. It is said to work perfectly, and will save much time in. commercial operation. In the trial of a new stream streat car in Sweden the cost of fuel is said to have been only about one penny per mile. The car will seat twenty-four passengers, the engine being in one end of the car. A process recently devised for cleaning lubricating oil that has been once used so that it may be used again consists ia pouring it gently over a strongly magnetized bed of iron. The metfl attracts to it all metalie particles. The oil is then filtered. Under the name of porcelain shot, small ?white globules of porcelain are made in Munich. They are made to take the place of ordinary lead shot used for cleaning bottle, as porcelain is entirely free from the objection of producing lead contamination. William E. Norris of Lewis ton, Me, , has completed a heat regulator that he s...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

LOCAL AND GENERAL. ? NEW PARISH ROAD.-The plan of a proposed parish road from the Richmond and Penrith road to Ashton Falls, on the Grose River, is on view at the Court House, at Richmond, where it may be inspected by those interested. LATE TRAINS.--Tte trains to Windsor and Richmond from the metropolis still continue to run late, and many are the complaints that are ' tittered against Mr. Eddy. One gentleman in the district, we understand, goes to the expense of wiring to the Commissioners immediately after the arrival of each train, informing them of the number of minutes late. The districts of Wind sor "and Richmond, we think, are important enough to warrant the railway authorities in pay ing some attention to our railway wants. The ti me-tables should be altered if the officials are unable to run the distance in the times now allowed. TENDER ACCEPTED.-The Tender of Mr. Sheen, of Windsor, for the construction of new school buildings at Marsden Park, Riverstone, has been accepted,...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Letters to the Editor. Sir,-Mr. MelviJle has been hard at work for many years trying to induce the people to tax themselves heavily, so as to in crease the profits of a few and shelter the , land monopolists from taxation. While giving him credit for sincerity in this peculiar idea of protecting the working man, I must ask him to allow that those who are apposed to him are also sincere, and ought therefore to be spoken of with courtesy. We freetraders conscientiously believe the people will be benefitted by making the land monopolist pay his share of taxation. Mr. Melville thinks that the working classes are to be benefitted by decreasing the spending power of their wages. We differ from him conscien tiously. We think that woman's sphere is the home, and that for her to displace a man at a factory is a good thing neither for her nor the man. Mr. Melville holds a very different opinion, and he has a perfect right to do so. But he over stepped the bounds of good taste and fair play wh...

WHAT WE HEAR [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

WHAT WE HEAR That the Hawkesbury election is creating a deal of interest, and to-night Windsor will be the scene of great excitement. That the man who was going to beat an oppo sition candidate three to one in the Municipal election, went home on his little pink ear, being beaten himself. That a story went the rounds on Sunday to the effect ths^t George Reid and a host of Freetrade advocates had that day driven up from Parramatta. They turned out to be a party of Parramatta tailors. That Mr. Cullen, M.P., for St. Leonards will be remembered as having been Congregational Minister in Windsor some years ago. That Mr. Pidgeon, who lost his £40 at Camden, was once a pedagogue somewhere near Pitt Town. That Dan O'Connor, the Jaynial One, is very much like a well-known local alderman, when speaking-only more so. That Richmond developed into a perfect pan demoniumon Tuesday night, when Ninny Melville visited that quiet township. That Dan O'Connor paid a high tribute to the ladies at Richmon...

MR. ROSE IN REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

MR. ROSE IN REPLY. Mr. Rose spoke at Sackville Reach on Monday afternoon and at Wilberforce at 8, receiving votes ot confidence at both places. At 10 o'clock he replied to Mr. Carruthers from the Royal Hotel. In the first place he owned that he had been mis taken in what he said with reference to Mr. Car ruthers recanting on the occasion when he moved for an ad valorem duty on jewellery. He then went on to deal with Mr. Carruthers' arguments, and challenged Mr. Carruthers to debate the ques tion out. There was not a Freetrade advocate in the colony of whom he was frightened. At Richmond on Monday evening last, During the course of a lengthy address Mr. Culleu said that it was the aim of Mr. Dibbs to defame the country so that he might claim the honour of having saved it. The Freetraders, he believed, would have a decisive majority on Satur day, for it would rest with the electors to say whether they would have a quack Government or not.

Telegraphic Delays. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Telegraphic Delays. Say the Grafton Grip :-It is quite time som concerted action was taken by the public of the northern districts with re ference to the repeated interruptions of the line at Wiseman's Ferry. The long column of important telegraphic news issued as an extraordinary from THE Grep office on Monday evening, was handed in for trans mission at 9- 13 a. m., and reached us at 4. 80 p. m. We are well aware that the local officials use every effort of expedite matters, and are in no way responsible for faults some hundreds of miles away. But when the interruption occurs again and again (sometimes, like the present moment, at critical periods) when intelligence is of vital importance, it is quite time that the unsound portion of the line was duplicated, or some other steps taken to prevent an im portant portion of the colony from being isolated without notice.

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

PERSONALI r IES. A . Tho Princess Louise recently completed a portrait of Miss Bonyngo, a daughter of 0. W. Bonynge, formerly of San Francifco. Tho Prince of Wales has become greatly interested in California -wines (says the New York World). Ho says they have the piquancy and flavour of the most original country on earth. Dr. Elisabeth Garrett Anderson is aaid to be tho only woman physician in England who can exact as large fees a9 the highest* priced practitioners.

A Charitable Princess. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

A Charitable Princess. Hero is a pretty little story about tlic Princess Maud oil Wales. Her mother makes her an allowance, a considerable part of which the span-Is iu charity, but there ore so many appeals to her sympathy that her little fund is entirely inadequate to meet them, so she has hit upon this method of replenishing her exchequer. She makes a habit of gathering up all tho peacock feathers "that are dropped by the great flock of pea fowl at Sandriugham, and these she weaves into fans and fire screens to be sold at charity fairs. The fact that they are made by a princess, and also that they are very prettily and tastefully done, gives them a consider able value, and she reaps from them a neat little sum for her pet pensioners. A chari table American woman with plenty of time and very little money has carried this scheme still further and spends all her spare time in manufacturing "pretty dainty kickshaws" of silk, lace and needlework, such as the soul feminine loveth, and t...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

LADJES' COLUMN. ' . A . , The soft-draping' ligh-weight woollens sow 80 cheaply sold in the shops make churning house gown by the addition of yoke collar, cuffs, belt or girdle of yelve.t in some harmonious hue, and edged or outlined ?with rings or figure 8's in fine gold cord. The eoft, dull, porcelain blue that is like a sky under spring clouds is in high favor for a bride walking aDd afternoon gowns, and next it ranks the pure pearl and smoke grays that are n>ade up with so much of silver emdroidcry aa to recall a November frost. Fans of flowered . gauze ribbon woven in end out of very slender sticks are the proper things to cany with the evening gown a la Josephine-thewliich, by the way, should be of some tliiu stuff, gauze muslin, net or cambric, if the wearer would be strictly and rigidly correct in costume. The new embroidery stuff,Oriental canvas, is all wool if not a yard wide, and comes only an the most delicate faded tints, so that care is requisite in choice of silk a...

Napoleon and the Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Napoleon, and the Theatre. We quote the following from a monthly periodical :-'The first Napoleon was quick to perceive the importance of the stage as a national institution-almost, it may be said, as a political engine. Very soon after he had obtained power as First Consul, he ap pointed his brother, Lucien Bonaparte, . - j instructions to supervise the theatres. The Bureaux de Censure, which had been established during the preceding years, were superseded. No plays could be repre sented in Paris without the direct authority of the Minister ; and the theatres were bound to submit their repertoires to him for exami nation and approval. Even the provincial managers producing new plays were bidden to send them in the first instance to the pre fect of the district; after he had examined them from a local point of view, they were to be forwarded, with his report, the Minister in Paris, who was charged to decide their fate. A prefect of police, specially instructed to watch over the mora...

Christ's Death-Place. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Christ's Death-Place. WHAT IS SHOWN AS CA.LVA.EY IN JEETJSAXEM. The only representative site for Calvary now offered pilgrims in Jerusalera is found in a couple of rooms inside the old edifice; one is owned and exhibited by tho Greeks, another by the Latins. These share tho same disability; both-since the church is already so full of traditions on the ground floor-had to go up a flight of stairs into free space nearer the roof. And there it is, amidst tawdry curtains and gilt bedizen ments of candles and altar-shrines, that this ancient spot upon which tho cross of Jesus Christ rested is pointed out, and the veri table hole is shown in which it was planted, And the thieves' crosses-a decorous but rather inadequate distance of five feet between them on the right and left of the middle one-are ranged alongside. And down underneath, far below, across some intervening spaca left by grading away the actual soil of the hill, so we are 6agely told, is the grave of Adam! Tradition has relat...

VARIETIES. The Guillotine. IT WAS FIRST DEEMED EXTREMELY FUNNY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

VARIETIES. « The Guillotine. IT WAS FIEST DEEMED EXTBEMELY FUNNY. And yet it is evident that the guillotine was not at first a terror-inspiring object. One General of the Revolutionary army had a guillotine engraved on his seal. The ladies of Tours wo~e guillotine earrings and the ' avenger of the people ' dancod with them at the proconsular balls. The guillotine was a la mode. Its inventor, Dr. Guillotin, in a speech before the National Assembly on December 1, 1789. had said ,* ' With my machine I slice off your head in the twinkling of an eye, aud you do not suffer.' People, it it must bo presumed, soon grew accustomed to the fatal machine, for it even entered the salons, and MM De Goncourt relate, in their 'History of French Society during the Revolu tion ' : ' In extremely good company at des sert, after supper, a little mahogany guillotine was on the table and the ladies, acting the role of Sanson placed under the knife dolls whose heads were portraits of some enemy Lameth Robe...

ART & LITERATURE V Captain A. 0. P. Haggard, a brother of the author of 4 She,' is about to appear as a novelist also. He is a British officer, sta tioned at Meerut, and has already published divers diaries of military expeditions. Charles Matthews once told a Btory of the ' Boots' at a country hotel where ho was staying, asking to be paid for going to the theatre. Matthews, struck with the fellow's civility, gave him an order for the play. ' Come and see the piece, Tom,' said Mat thews. ' At the theatre ?' ' Yes,' said Mat thews ; ' here is an order for vou.' The next day Matthews said: ' Well, Tom, did you like the play P' ' Oh, yes,' said the Boots, in a dubious kind of way; ' but whose to pay me for my time f The Russian censor has recently made some concessions to popular demand, and among other works now allowed entrance into the country are Heine's complete works, Wallace's 'Free Russia,' Carlyle's 'History of the French Revolution' and' Frederick the Great,' and Zola...

Literary Sweaters. SOMETHING ABOUT UNDERPAID WORKERS IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Literary Sweaters. SOMETHINGA-BOTT UNDERPAID WOBKEBS LOIJDON. If the word ' sweater ' is to stray from the i manual industries into literature it should mean the shabby and extortionate employer, ! not the employed. An author, however, j who calls himself a ' Literary Sweater ' in a popular journal means that he is the under- I paid employed, not the stingy employer. A | wondrous tale ho tells, if we are to take his i confessions literally; and if he is writing truth and not merely romance, Grub street is with us still and as wretched aa in the titn^ of Savage. According to this writer he com menced author at 19 which perhaps account for a good deal. At 19 a man. can hardly have xead enough to justify him in attempt ing the career of letters wrnch, when he hath once begun will leave him Bcant opportunity or time fot reading. He will always be rais> ing crops ol a fatigued and starring wit ana can hardly prosper. The ' Literary Sweater' began as a sub-editor on a salary of 1 guine...
