Weak Muscles and Weak Hearts. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889

Weak Muscles and Weak Hearts. . The elevator was introduced in stores, hotels and dwellings to Bave step and time. Now comes a distinguished medical author ity, Dr. William A. Hammond, to point out some of the disadvantages of the lift. He declares that in consequence of inertia, or a disinclination to walk and take other exercise, most business men of the present day hare weak muscles, and especially weak hearts. 'If they are obliged to exert them selves to even a slight degree their limbs become exhausted and tremble like a reed | shaken in the wind, their respiration becomes hurried and difficult and their pulses beat at the rate of 125 a minute or more.' Business men will gather round an elevator and wait several minutes for the machine rather than ascend one or two flights of stairs. They will seek residences close to horse-car lines and run at the top of their speed a few yards to catch a car, rather than walk when they have plenty of time. They gesticulate wildly and get red ...

Curiosities of Shaving. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889

Curiosities of "Shaving. A volume might be written on the curi osities of shaving. Particularly interesting would be an historical inquiry into the origip of the custom of shaving the head. It was not until the fifth century that in Europe priests began to shave their crowns. Tljfi Roman "clergy then adopted tne circSmr method, and shaded thafcsnttill round spot on the top of theJreaiLwhfah is known as the tonsure. In Scotland,, however, the monks shaved the whole of the fore part of the head from ear to ear. ; In the AicUtmati Id/mAa ever/ma^i shavedhia h^k,QrS!&«^0t&iiis wife to shave it for him. Many other Orientals also go bald-headed. We used tp do so in the last century, and by a strange piece of contrariness, we wore artifioal wigs to cover our baldness. As for the Chinaman, his Method of shaving is exactly opposed'to to th&t of the Roman monk. He shaves all4 but a round patch, the half of Which groifrs' long,' and forms the pig-tail. When thq difficul...

Among the Riverstonians. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889

Among the Riverstonians. BY PAUL TWVFORD Probably, there h;is been no more abused place in all New South Wales than Riverstone. It has suppled a theme of conversation for gossips who travel by train, and who, as soon as the township heaves in sight, elevate their eyebrows, and raise their shoulders, over which they jerk their thumbs   most significantly. These gossips are mostly men of means (on a small scale), though they talk like millionaires. They chuckle to think THEY have     not been bitten by speculating in land in the " butcher's township and they bless their lucky   stars that they live in such places of civilization as Windsor and Richmond, albeit they grow lean and poor under the civilizing process. Generally, the topic of conversation once started, it is kept up until Blacktown is reached ; and the hard things that are said against Riverstone and its inhabitants are enough to make one tremble for the consequences, when...

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

Letters to the Editor. Sik,-1 wonder what " Democrat " meant when | said in his letter to your issue of yth instant, " It is also to be desired that they (Protectionists) will not be betrayed at the next election by those who profess to be their friends." Was he alluding to the fact of Mr. Garvan trying to sacrifice Mr. j Rose in order to win the support of Mr. Bow man ? I only hope " Democrat " will advocate Protection to the utmost of his ability so long as . he believes in it. Now that the all-explaining Single Tax has got a start in the Hawkesbury dis trict, it will be impossible for such a mass ol in consistencies as Protection to make headway against it. All the eftorts of Protectionists will only lead people to think more deeply, and listen I to the earnest and able Single Tax men of the Hawkesbury district. As sparks fly from the anvil so truth falls from the lips of discussion. Mayhap a spark of the Divine Truth, that God I made the earth for the USE OF ALL His children may...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. J-istnn to m<», and if you speak me fair I'll (ell you news, iinliflnrent good to <;ither. The son of the immortal Dickens objects to being made the subject of a joke by a Sydney evening paper-the tenor of the same bjiiig that he and other offspring of great men generally turn out to be unmitigated fools. He simply objects to being called a fool, and although he does not pretend to be as great a genius as his late father, and never in his most sanguine moments, perhaps, hopes to leave behind hitn a name so revered and loved, he still cannot be brought by any evening sheet to look upon him self as nothing short of a regular dunderheaded jackass. Mr. Dickens might have saved himself the trouble of noticing the article complained of. All who seemingly listened to the son of the man who gave us Micawber and Pickwick, Sairey Gamp and Dolly Varden, Mark Tapley and Capt'n Cuttle, Little Nell and Sidney Carton, all, doubtless, had previously formed t...
