Her Smile his Sunlight. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889
Her Smile his Sunlight Sweetheart, when rhymes I make For your dear sake, You bring Into your face a smile To cheer me while I sing. Like to that bird am I Which, when the sky At night A deeper azure grows No longer knows Delight. Or like of flowers that one Which loves the sun And gives The beauty cf its bloom To him for whom It lives. Pleasure nor joy to bless Have I unless Your face Over my paper shines And lights the lines With grace. For me your smile is day The golden ray That climbs Imagination's wall, And sweetens all My rhymes. For you the bird's song, this The flower's fresh kiss -d And breath; Nor may their nightfall come Till both are dumb In death !

The South Ward Election. The Mayor (Mr. 1"\ J. Mortley) has received two communications during the past week from Mr. Walter Coonan, solicitor for Mr. John Gos per, the defeated candidate for South Ward in the recent election. Mr. Coonan has requested Mr. Mortley to resign, but this he very naturally declined to do, and properly pointed out that it lay with the Supreme Court to declare his seat vacant. Since that time one or two communi cations have passed, but so far no writ has been issued, consequently we will have to await further developments.

Brown-' How did you feel over it ?' J.-' Well, I felt put out.' tiling as effeminate.

SATURDAY, APRIL 6, ;88g. NOTES ON NEWS. During the present Municipal Year the Borough Council of Windsor appear bent upon making several necessary improve ments to our streets, and in this work they will surely have the support of the rate payers.

ART & LITERATURE [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889
ART & LITERATURE :2fdfc long ago Sarah Brown, the Parisian model,whom * Parisina told us of last week, ?wanted one hundred dollars very badly. A painter lent her the sum, but reluctantly, and after making observations and reserves. Sarah felt hurt, and immediately borrowed tlie same sum of another painter, in order to pay back the money to the first. Accom panying' the return of the loan was a note with these words: 4 Je te remercie. J'ai trouvfc un autre imbccile.' The Venus of Milo is one of the finest pieces of Greek sculpture extant. It was * found in the year 1S20 amid some ruins in the ide of Milo, in the Grecian archipelago. Hie statue was found in an underground -vault, which was accidentally laid open by a peasant while uprooting a tree. Tlie earth suddenly crumbled under his feet, disclosing as he said, ' a cave peopled with white phan toms.' Having communicated the discovery to M. Brest, the resident French Consul, the statue, was removed to Paris in 1821. From an...
Short Sight in Children. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889
Short Sight in Children. The hygiene of the eye in children is a wide subject and one worthy of our closest atten tion, seeing what tho organ is to the human being. Dr. Fieuzal urgeB the strict introduc tion, both in school and at home, of fixed rules with regard to the light, school furni ture, methods of writing, and the character of the print. With regard to this, it may be remarked that too much study, too small print, a bad light, too little exercise, all tend to produce true short sight in children with out any hereditary tendency. The symptoms are easily recognised. Besides holding their books nearer, and being unable to read tlie figures on ihe blackboard across the room, they have frequent pain over the eyes, and are, as a rule, weakly and ill-nourished. The way in- which this' too-long' eyeball j is actually produced is interesting. A bad light or small print causes the child at first to hold the book near, and this causes convergence of the eyes. Now a studious child besi...
POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889
POPULAR SCIENCE. I In a leg of mutton we have 10 per cent, of albuminoids, or flesh-forming substance ; and 8 to 9 of fat, or heat-producing substance. Let us compare that with wheat as a favourite vegetable substance, and we may have in the solid matter of wheat 11 per cent, of album inoids, or flesh-forming substance ; and 70 of heat-producing substance, or starch with a little fat. Wheat is, bythis calculation, much more valuable than the leg of mutton, and the vegetarian would, I dare say, with fair argument, challenge many further simi lar comparisons. Coming, in feet, direofcly to matter of qualify or goodness, it may honestly be admitted that, weight by weight, vegeta ble substances, when they are carefully se lected, possess the most striking advantages over animal, in nutritive value.-Sr. Rich ardson in Longman?!.

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889
PERSONALITIES. Ex-Queen Isabella of Spain, who lives in France, has become devoted to the Ameri can game of poker. That good-natured but extremely silly prince, the Duke of Gloucester, once visited a madhouse and was suddenly confronted with a raving- lunatic who, surveying the duke with an eye of speculation, ceased his howling and exclaimed, ' Hello ! Why, here's Silly Billy!' ' Good gracious,' said the duke ; ' why, the man knows me !' ' Oh, yes,' re plied the governor,' he has lucid intervals.'
