FARM & GARDEN. Lameness in Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
FARM & GARDEN. Lamefttessiii. Horse& >rj Probably the most frequent cause of large ness ill Worses is caused, by contraction ofr the hoof or feet, fl»dthifl is caused by neg* leet either in shoeing or oaring for the feet., Wben we stop .and consider that there is & certain per cent of -moisture in the- structure of die hoof, tee see the importance of sup plying this-need. The horse that stands on a dry floor ^reek after week must suffer front dry feet, and this means contractions. The hoofs here become hard and unyielding and the horse lame. If the shoeing be neglected there will be an unnatural growth of the hoof and that, too, not in a natural manner, but closely held by-the iron band in a restricted form. In fact, the ills from which tJB poor; horses so often suffer are very largely to be traced to neglect on the part of the owners. The horse was intended for out-door life on the ground, where the feet would be kept soft and yielding. If we would keep c...

TALE. Maestro Ambrogio. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
TAL E. Maestro Ambrogio. By I. R. SuiutVAif, in Scribner's Magazine, In a certain narrow street of Florence, near Andrea del Snrto'e house, there lived in the latter half of the fifteenth century a learned 4^otor whose name and titles history in scarcely able to recall. His four grey trails sheltered him from the summer's heat, the winter's cold; his little garden caught from the sunlight all the colours of the prism in roses, wild pomegranates and oleanders. The laboratory behind it held his store of manu scripts, his retorts and crucibles, his furnace -all the apparatus needed for experiments which so absorbed him that he seldom went out into the bustling streets. He had but one thought, one purpose: to make some vast disobvery which should benefit the human race. You may iind his house to-day in the Via del Mandorlo; his laboratory has been tamed into a stable ; the roses stall ninriot in his garden, and the snails still nibble at their leaves ; but the laBt of many tenants, trea...
A Married Man's Matrimonial Maxims. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
A Married Man's Matrimonial Maxims. In a recent; ? number of Casseits Magazim Professor Blaclrie delivers himself of . sundry maxims which he considers will tend to. married happiness, and which can be briefly summarised as follows:- ? 1. What axe your expectations of the mar ried liffe? If youexpect in it a paradise of delight and a field of clover you aresure to be disappointed. Exppctfrom it only a more sacred sphere of moral training', and it is not in the power even of a badhusbandto deprive you altogether of the rich spiritual blessing of the bond. 2. It is not in the power of the most sag acious young lady to discern the character of of the future husband in that of the present lover. . . Look, therefore, for a certain change in the character of your present ad mirer. The best woman in the world would be spoiled and become intolerable if she were allowed to receive such tribute and such ser vice as lovers so lavishly offer on the shrine of their idol. 3. Men are naturally les...
The Hawkesbury. NO. 2.—WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
The Hawkesbury. BY CLIO. WINDSOR. Viewed from Mulgrave or various sur- rounding eminences, the town of Windsor presents itself as one of the prettiest of country towns, and---although much is frequently said to the contrary--a closer investigation does not by any means dis- pel the expectations aroused in the mind of a visitor, by a distant view, on his making a first acquaintance with Wind- sor. Windsor claims to be the third oldest town in the colony, and it is to this fact that many reminiscenses of the earlier days of the latter refer to the settlement then made on the banks of the Hawkesbury, where the town now stands. Windsor has at the present time a popu- lation of about two and half thousand, &nbsp; and although the facilities for the carry- ing on of manufactures of various kinds are of the best, no other works than those of fellmongering have been established. There are two of these industries, worked by Messrs. Johnstone and M'Grath Brothers, respectively, on the...
Freetrade Association. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
Freetrade Association. On Friday evening last an adjourned meeting of the above was held at Mr. J. O'Brien's Union Hall, Windsor, when Mr. A. Turnhull presided. There were about 20 gentlemen present. Messrs. J. T. Smith, John Tebbutt, Jun., and T. Lobb were added to the committee. The chairman said that there was some objection to Mr. Carruthers' name being placed first on the list of those gentlemen to be banquetted. Mr. Smith proposed, " That a former resolution be rescinded and Mr. Bowman's name be placed first on the list." Mr. S. J. Dunstan seconded. Mr. John Gough informed the meeting that Mr. Conlon had seen Mr. Carruthers, who said he would not attend unless Mr. Bowman's name were placed first on the list. If the matter were amicably arranged they might lease the steamer to take the party down the river, and thus they would be able to see the bad state into which the stream had got. They could have the banquet in the evening. Mr. R. W. Dunstan could not under stand why Mr. B...

Richmond Skating Rink. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
Richmond Skating Rink. On Saturday evening last the new skating rink in the large hall of the School of Arts, Richmond, was opened. There was only a moderate attend ance, but this can be attributed to the warm evening, it being as yet rather early in the season for this winter amusement. The floor is in fine condition, and the hall is of a good size, being much larger than any hall in Windsor. The enterprise of Messrs. Hill and Benson is to be highly commended, in giving healthy amusement to the public of Richmond, and we sincerely hope it will meet with success. Skating is now taking the place of dancing, and we think it is far more graceful and correct. We understand that to keep the ball rolling a subscription club is to be formed, termsone guinea the season, and there are to be two open evenings a week-an ordinary night, ad mission is, and a select night at 2s 6d. We understand that Messrs. Hill and Benson have about 50 pairs of steel skates of a good make, so that patrons of th...
Small Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
Small Matters. On the occasion of Mr. Eddy's visit to Windsor last week he noticed that J several fire buckets, canvas utensils that arc kept at every Railway Station, and marked " Fire Only," for use in case of a conflagration-had, in consequence of non-use,jpreased "very much, the result being that fhey assumed a different shape. Mr. Eddy called the attention of the employees to the fact, and remarked that if attention was not paid to small matters like this, those of greater moment in the Railway management would in all pro bability he neglected. He asked that steps should be taken to preserve the buckets, and prevent them from creasing. Mr. Eddy's policy is a good one, and should soon have beneficial results.

Garde and Grammar. In our last issue there appeared a para graph under this1 heading, and through some; unaccountable means it got mixed so completely that we find on perusing it that the whole thing is a screaming farce. \re hasten to correct it. The expression used by one of the partners in the game in ques tion, who were to play off was " It is between you and I." "No," replied the other, "it is between you and me- The pedagogue who was called in decided in fa vour of the man who said that the latter expression was correct, and we agree with him. The wager was accordingly paid OVLT.

Windsor School of Arts. On Monday evening a special meeting of the committee of the above was held, when there were present: Messrs. Mortley (President), Holland, Gallagher, O'Hara, J. Dickson, C. Da vies, O. Fitzpatrick, J. C. Fitzpatrick and Dr. Callaghan. A report dealing with the proposed im provements to the building was brought up, and on the motion of Mr. J. C. Fitz patrick it was received and it was re solved that a committee, consisting of Messrs. Mortley, Johnson and Holland be a sub-committee to deal with the matter, draw up specifications and call for tenders.

" Death Levels all Distinctions." [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
" Death Levels all Distinctions." Leave me not comfortless, Lord ! I am sorely tried, Thy deep affictions walk Dark at my side. Leave me not comfortless. Stricken and reft of light; Starless and moonless now Cometh my night. Leave me not comfortless, Give me one drop of balm ; In the vast ruin left One minute's calm. Leave me not comfortless, In this my trial time, Week, blind, and erring, I still am thine. Leave me not comfortless, Strengthen my doubts and fears, Bind up the bruised heart, Dry up the tears. Till through afflictions Thy vvisdow I own, Kneeling beside my hopes, Crushed and o'erthrown. OSCAR HUGH AN, Sheriff's Office.
The Imperal Federation Fad [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
The Imperal Federation FacL A more sensible view is now being entertaind in London of tlin relationship between the colonics and the mother country. Sir John Hall thinks "that Australia would support England in case she went to war on account of any of the colonies." but is doubtful of a similar result " in the event of a European war." There can be little doubt that there is a growing feeling against any interference by the English speaking communities in the Pacific, in the Imperial or Monarchical squabbles of older lands. When such absurb pretentions as the Batte.nberg claims arc gravely put forward as a matter for European diplomacy, no Australian could vote a man or a shilling to support them, however deeply the English court party might be interested in the result. But a war undertaken "on account of" a colony is a difficult matter. If to defend that colony from foreign ag gression by some European power, Sir John need nardly " think,"-he may be quite sure of Australian suppor...
An old-time Parliamentary Hero. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
An old-time Parliamentary Hero. A correspondent tells of an old-time Parliamentary hero who, if lie never did anything marvellous in the way of states manship, certainly afforded us a deal of amusement, and was therefore decidedly beneficial to us all, for the man who gives ns a good hearty laugh does us as much good as the man who treats us to a dose of castor-oil, and his&lt; medicine is far the more pleasant to the taste. Mr. Hanley Bennett is the veteran I allude to now, and the way he got into Parliament is a fine example of the great influence that" flukes " sometimes have in colonial afl'airs. It appears that a few of Hanley's friends being present at the Tamwortli nomination, perceiving that an unpopular person was likely to be allowed to do a walk over, pro posed Hanley out of pure devilment, never dreaming that he had. the slightest show of securing even a dozen votes. To the astonishment of all, however, Hanley topped the poll and cai.no to Sydney, where he certai...
SACKVILLE REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
SA.CKVILLE RK.VCH. DEBATING CU;B.-The local debating club is in a sound state, and much good is being done by this institution. VICTIMISING THE PEOPI.E.-Some little time ago two hawkers appeared upon the scene, and took orders from various residents for various classes of drapery, which they quoted at ridicu lously low prices. They only had samples with them, but promised to fulfil the orders by Mon day last, after taking the order from the various residents they invariably produced a roll of tweed, the only article, outside the samples, they had in the cart with thera, and managed to get rid of a large quantity of the material at high prices for cash. The people who had given orders for other goods waited patiently until Monday last, and of course the smart gentry did not turn up. It now transpires that that the tweed sold was shoddy of the worst character. This experience will teach people the lesson that it is much better better to pay a fair price lbr their requirements to busin...
Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
Letters to the Editor. SIR,-To those persons whose interest is not affected by political mismanagement and party intrigue (it there are any such in this community} it must be amusing to read and watch the profes sions and actions of those who figure on the political stage. From the professional statesman to the subordinate M.P., we see the endeavour to gall and mislead the people by false representa tions and delusive promises. How long this game of political legerdemain is to continue it would be premature to conjecture. The actions of our statesmen and neir subordinates tor the past two years in particular are enough to disgust anyone who has a due appreciation of honesty and pro ficient statesmanship. Ministry succeeds Minis try, and statesmen use their alluring political craftiness for their own ambition and personal benefit. Each new Ministry, as soon as they take office, issues their political programme. Tf we may be governed by the representations of the present Ministry it w...
Straight Speaking. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
Straight Speaking. Speaking at Mr. Crookwell Show Dinner last week, our old friend Joe Roberts, of Goulburn, who always speaks straight, said : There were a good many farmers present, and he told them they ought to be ashamed of themselves, seeing that they had the grandest land wilhin hundreds of miles. He told them to theu face that they were a lazy lot of men ; they were a dirty lot of farmers. Not one knew how to cultivate. He told tliein if one man had drained 10. i j, or 20 acres, and yet much more could be obtained from a small area drained than from a large area undrained. He was speaking to them for their good. Crookwell claimed to be the parent society of Goullrirn. Well, the old hen should be able to take the chickens under ,ts wings; but judging from the size of the society it must be moult
Victorian Land Boom. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
. Victorian Land Boom. The important article in the London STATIST with reference to the recent la: d boon in Victoria, has a special importance at the present moment for all residents of New South Wales. It appears that the exceptionally inflated prices of city and suburban lands were due, not so much to a real increase of value from the growth of population, hut from the clcver manipulation of railway routes b)' speculators in Parliament, who first purchased tracts of land, and then having successfully engineered a railway li.ic through them, resold their properties ?di largely enhanced rates to the Govern ment whose outlay had previously raised their value. This is one of the crying evils of the existing land system which gives the speculator an opportunity of enriching himself at the expense of the State. Now, before long the railway policy of the near future must be formulated by whatever Ministry is in power. Will legislators in New South Wales be able to secure the correct ti...
