An Incident in Sims Reeves's Dra matic Career In bis ' Random Recollections of an Actor,' recently published by Messrs.

You may imagine the 6hoc>. As soon as it was possi ble he hurried home, and found it too true. He had not then risen to fame, nor was his first wife in the profession, consequently^ew know that he has been twice married. His first wife was much older than himself.

A LIVELY TIME AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

LIVELY TIME AT RICHMOND. Richmond was very lively on Tuesday evening. Mr. Dan O'Connor spoke from the Post Ofiice Hotel to 500 people, Mr. ]. E. Onus, Mayor, in the chair. The speaker dealt at length with the fallacies of Protection, and showed how New South Wales had completely walked over Victoria since she adopted that modified form of insanity, and became infected with the heresy of Protec tion. The manufacturers, and men who would not give a shilling to a starving man, had subsi dised the Protection Union in order that candi dates might be assisted. Mr. O'Connor delivered a good address, and was well applauded. Amongst other matters he touched upon was the personality of the Ministry. There was Mr. Dibbs. whose name was synonomous with failure, catastropKei penury, and who had never dealt with anything that had not withered under his upas-like touch ; who ruined the company with which he was con nected in his endeavour to introduce Chinese lalxnir; who was a failure as a mercha...

THE WORK OF A LIFETIME. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

THE WORK 01? JA LIFETIME. In the flush of youth's beginning When renpwn seems worth the winning By a score of schemes accomplished Ero the eve of life draws nigh, Then the mind surveys with pleasure All the length of life mid leisure For researches carried forward To completion ere we die. But the mai:ch of time, incosmnt, Proves our hopes are evanescent. And the plans of finished labours Dwindle down to two or one ; Strange delays, all iwcxpectx'A, One by one appear, detected, And the more we do, the greater Seems tye task that lies undone. Still, as year to year succeedeth, Each in turn more swiftly speedcth; Fifty years soon fly behind us, And are dwindled to a span ; Still the linal day draws nearer, And the truth grows ever clcarer That life i« nil too little To compk-te the cherish'd plan.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

TOPICS OF THE Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifterent good to either. To-day the great battle for the representation of the Hawkesbury will be fought out, and though both sides are confident of success, the result is doubtful yet, Mr. Bowman has a steady and solid vote behind him, which will not desert him at the present crisis, and he relies to a large extent upon the outlying districts for his return. Mr. Rose is a man of special ability, a man who has studied politics, and who has developed into a very fluent and pleasing speaker. Ha has secured a Seal of sympathy, and the result of his recent contest at Argyle, where he was only defeated by 9 votes in a farming constituency, rather tells in his favour. But you never can tell till the numbers are up, and not until the returns are declared this evening will either side be able to congratulate itself on having scored a vtctory. The tocsin has sounded all over the country. The parliamentary candidate, ...

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

HUMOUR. The young lady whose feelings -were * all worked up' has ordered a fresh supply. They stand for office in England and run for it in America. Characteristic, iea't it. The Bhoeraalrer need have no fear of being without work. His occupation is ever lasting. "What kind of dresses do materialised spirits wear ? Wrappers, of course : spirit wrappers. It is only in rude communities that people perch upon the theory of government by the rod. A girl may not see much in her sweetheart to laugh at, but his moustache is pretty sure to tickle her. The newest style of dude collar is called ' The Pirate/ because it is an adept at cutting throats. People suffering from contagious disease? should bo kept cool by iceolation. Motto for dining-room girls-One hair upon the head is better than two in the soup. The average tumbler holds half a pint, but the circus tumbler holds about half a keg. Footballs are useful in college yards. If the fresh young men do not like the dusty old professors the...

Montreal citizens hare an idea that nearly all Americans are engaged in the steal and bolt business. Bentley-I understand that the beautiful Miss Beauregard has at last accepted Posey" boy.

Marriage must be a failure among the Rus sian peasantry. Upon a conviot ship conveying only women to Sughaliia, seventy-five per cent, of the prisoners had been convicted of killing their husbands.

Some Stage Deaths. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Some Stage Deaths. Quia, the comedian, died while emptying a glass of Bordeaux. Palmer, the actor, expired while playing in ' The Stranger.' He had been unnerved by recent information of the death of a beloved son. In the fourth act of the drama, Baron Steinfort obtains an interview with the Stranger, and recognizing him as an old Mend, inquires into the cause of his retire ment. The Stranger replies that he has left his children in the town hard by. Palmer had scarcely uttered the words, when he sank at the feet of MiMeld (who played the Baron) and died without a groan. There was an actor named Cummins, some twenty years ago, who, in a play in which he bore a part, had to deliver a speech conclud ing with the words Be witness for me, ye celestial hosts; Such mercy and such pardon as my soul Accords to tlioe, and begs of heaven to show thee. May such befall me at my latest hour. The last word had scarcely dropped from his lips when he fell dead upon the stage. These coincidences are...

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

Mrs. Siddon. Mrs. Siddon. was bora at Brecknock, in. Wales, in the year 1755. Her father was Roger Kemble, the manager of one of these itinerant companies of players of which the poet Crabbe pays: Of various men these ma.Tch.itig troupes are made : Pen-spurning clerks and lads contemning trade ; Waiters and servants by confinement teased, And youth o$ wealth by dissipation eased ; With feeling ^ympli, who, such resource at hand, Scorn to obey the rigours of command. She first made her dSiut as a singer, but early gave that line for that of tragedy. For this she was well suited by the character of her countenance, figure, and great natural skill. During her fifteenth year she fell in love with a young man, an actor in her father's com pany ; but her father and mother, thinking her too young to form a connection with the young man, stopped her tragedy performance and sent her to Warwickshire to be a lady's maid with a lady in that county. Here she remained until 1773, when, with her p...

THE TRAVELLER. A Missionary in Western China. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

THE TRAVELLER. A A Missionary in Western China. In < Westeiyi China ; A journey to tlie great Buddhist Centre of Mount Omei,' the Rev. Dr. Virgil C. Hart has written one of the most readable books of modern travel that has been published for many months. Al though an enthusiast in the evangelization of the Chinese, he does not mingle his religion with his observations, but reserves what he hag to say on missionary work until the last j chapter. He appears to be an- entirely im | partial man, eager to get the facts and to do justice to the people. Hence, what he has to say of the 45,000,000 people who are crowded into the fertile parte of Se-Chuen, along: the line of "the great Yang-tse river, has a peculiar value. Mostr of those who visit China are either pro-Chinese or bitterly oppo'sed to the Mongolian. If the traveller is an Englishmen he gathers every scrap of evidence that he can secure to show that the the people voluntarily cultivate opium, and that the habit of op...

SKETCH ER. + . Shell Engraving. An Elegant Art Work for Amateurs The crazo for high art -work of various descriptions long ago reaohed the West, eaya a writer in the St. Louis Globc-Denwcrat, and art paintings on Bhovcls, banjos, and other objects of ornament and use is well known to our amateure. Equally enthusiastic are the workers of Kensington embroidery, the wood carvers, the modellers in clay, and the brass hammerers, all of whom have produced work some specimens of which are equal to any thing of the kind wrought in the East. But as the demand for objects of beauty increases, lie searchers after art in every-day walks of life are constantly reaching out for new worlds to conquer, and no better field for their effort can bo found than in the direction indicated by the heading of this ar ticle. Compared with wood-carving and brass hammering, shell-engraving is exceedingly delicate work, but even the tyro, with proper instruction and reasonable practice can ac complish fair resu...

More About Headaches. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

More About Headaches. Headaches commonly arise from too little or too much blood-circulating in the. brain. Some people have verylittle and poor blood in the body-not enough to be all over the place at once; so if they study, off it goes to the head, and leaves the feet cold; while if they eat, off it goes to the stomach, and leaves the brain bare, and brings on a headache. It is, indeed, difficult for auy one effectually to use body and brain at the same time. Headache from deficiency in tha brain may be recognised by its being at the top of the head, by pallor, by dizziness.and frequently by noises in the ears. These are the head aches benefitted by slight etimulmts-strong tea or coffee, hot soup-anything, in. short which incroases the circulation; a'so by lying down with the headlow. Such peoplo should also sleep with the head low. The opposite state is when the head is too full of blood, the face flushed, the temples throbbing, the pain excruciating, and the patient unable to be...

TALE. A Fine Haul of Fish. An Aragonese Tale. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

TALE. A Fine Haul of Fish. An Aragonese Tale. Covered with glory and with wounds in the War of the Succession and without a penny in his purse, as in those days was the case with most warriors and heroes, the noble scion of Mequinenza returned one day to his dismantled castle, to rest from the narsh fatigues of the camp, and eat in peace the lentils that came with his title. Two words let lis give to the soldier, and other two to his birth-plaee. Don Jaime de Mequinenza, baron of that name, who had fought as a captain for the interests of Louis the Fourteenth, was at that day a man of five-and-thirty years, tall, handsome, rough, brave and energetic; little lettered, but jovial and gallant to the last degree with women particularly fond, indeed, of pretty peasants. Add to this that he was an orphan, an only child, a bachelor, and you have the picture of the Aragonese hidalgo. As to his castle, it was the same as its master, barring its strength. But, as to its solitariness, pride, a...

Mr. Josephson's History of Floods in the Hawkesbury River. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889

Mr. Josephson's History of Floods in the Hawkesbury River. [TO THE EDITOR.] SIR,--- On several occasions the Windsor rainfall results, which appear in this publi- cation, have been quoted by writers in the local newspapers, and only just recently by your correspondent, G.C.J. I desire, how- ever, to state that the Windsor data as copied into Mr. Josephson's tables abound with inaccuracies. The first two columns of the Windsor rainfall on page 11 are, with the exception of the headings, correctly copied from my own publications. My own head- ings express the heights of the receiving surfaces of the gauges in feet and inches, and not in minutes and seconds of arc. The use of the symbols, ' and " to express feet and inches, is highly to be depreciated. As an instance ot the jumble produced by this misuse of a common symbol, I may quote the following sentence from an article by a professional man on " Topographical Surveying " in the SURVEYOR for September 15, 1888. "In a common 5" theo...
