Richmond News. SKATING.-The skaters in Richmond are many, as evinced by the large attendance at the local j rink at the School of Arts. Everything in con nection therewith goes on like the marriage bells, and Messrs. Hill and Benson are to be compli- j mented on the amount of pleasure they offer to the Richmond skating public by the opening of their rink. At any rate, anyone in Richmond, whether skater or no skater, cannot spend an hour better than by putting in an appearance at the School of Acts on Tuesday and Saturday evenings after 7.30. LAW.-As if to make up for the quiet times at the Court House for the last few weeks, the local magistrates have had a rush of business during the last few days. On Friday the Court sat from TO a.m. to 4 p.m., and again for some considerable time on Tuesday. The principal business arose out of the loss of some pigs, the property of John Shepherd, and the defendants paid dearly for secreting the porkers. The total fines and costs amounting to /2f&...

The Buffer's Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 April 1889
The Buffer's Complaint I am bound to allow that the fugitive years Have obtained the advantage of me, For a streaky appoaranoe discolours my hairs, Though they once were as black as could be. My gait is unsteady, my liver is wrong, And my foot is too large for my shoe. It is seldom I break into jubilant song, And my friends disapprove when I do. Ah ! the girls do not smile as they formerly smole When I ogled them, ever so gay ; They are distant and haughty-I think, on the whole, They prefer to keep out of my way. I have just finished dining, my dinner re mains. Like a lumbering weight on my ohest, It has caused, and will cause me, inordinate pains, For it isn't disposed to digest. My enjoyment of life is contemptibly small So I murmur, suppressing a sob, ' Tell the kind undertaker to drop me a call: I'll endeavour to find him a job '

WINDSOR AND RICHMOND Gazette. SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1889. Who is the Liar? [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 April 1889
WINDSOR AND RICHMOND ©ajette. SATURDAY, APRIL 20, ;88g~ Who is the Liar ? When we hear a man continually prating about his honesty, and endea vouring by word of mouth to convince his acquaintances that he, like Caesar's wife, is " above suspicion," we may certainly accept all he has to say CUM GRANO SALIS. A few weeks ago we pub lished the following paragraph : On Wednesday last Mr. G. Davies informed Mr. Bowman, M.P., that he had seen Mr. Eddy, who was favourably inclined towards the tramway to Sackville Reach. Later on, Mr. Bowman interviewed Mr. Eddy, who said that this was untrue ; he had not seen Mr. Davies, and this was the first he heard of the tramway. Crushed again. This, is the way in which some people earn a little notoriety-and yet there are -peo ple simple enough to be gulled. Last week, in a fit of virtuous indignation, the object of this paragraph fired off one of his " journalistic " pop-guns with the objectofslaughteringus, but as usual, the shot rebounded and struc...

If I lose this fight I willl be- friendless and penni less. Let's agree- that Hie loser shall! have- 50® dollars." M'Auliffe refused the offer, saying: that: the winner should take ever thing. A short time: after the fight Jackson' said! to&lt; Jack Hlallman : "Jack, I've got more money than I ever had im my life, and I want to give M'Auliffe 500* dbtfars.. Will you ask him if he will' accept it ?" It is said!, that M'Auliffe was; proffered the coin and would! not accept it..

NOTES ON NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 April 1889
NOTES ON NEWS. We still live J Last week the GAZETTE com pleted the third quarter of its existence, notwith standing the croakings of opponents, and the thousand-and-orte tricks resorted to by interested persons, who found that we were slowly working the ground from under their feet. Since we com menced operations in Windsor we have dealt fairly by all with whom we have come into con tact ; we have made many friends, and we believe few, if any,-enemies, even though we must acknowledge that it is a difficult task for a news paper man to be successful in this direction. We have adhered to the principle of " Live and let live," and can honestly say that we never once, during our brief career in this town, endeavoured to do one ill turn to our opponent. We wish we could admit that he or his had acted in as generous a manner towards ourselves. We do not complain-we expected such treatment, and having got just what we anticipated, we have surely every reason to be satisfied-for we are wel...

Mr. Bowser doesn't intend to let sickness or death get ahead of us as a family if any effort of his can prevent, and he is always doing the right thing in the nick of time. One day ho came home an hour ahead of time, Iiis countenance wearing a very important look, and the first thing he did was to bolt up stairs to our bedroom and lower the win dow, although I had just closed it, after air ing the room for two hours. He then came clattering down to ask me for a pan. 4 What on earth do you want of a pan ?' I asked. ' To save all our lives !' he answered. * How P' ' Your bed-room, is full of poisonous gases, which must be absorbed by an open vessel of water.' ' Nonsense!' ' I expected it. That's tho weapon of the ignorant ! Mrs. Bowser, if you want to die by poisonous; gases poisoning the blood, I have nothing to say, but I shall save the lif6 of our child if possible. I have felt a strange lassi tu...

VARIETIES. A Only command persons, and you may be pretty sure that a good number will obey. In France, in addition to the kindergarten sohools, they have what are called maternal schools, which are of the same character as the kindergarten, but simpler.

POPULAR SCIENCE. -A They deposit sheet copper for roofing etc., now by electricity instead of rolling' it. Some forms of dyspepsia are caused by a deficiency of water in the system, as the drinking- of too little water is much more injurious than the drinking of too much.

Now tliaakHgiviiig For her journey done, For her span of living, Spent beneath the sun. She was so sweet and tender So fair on earth, No praises we could lend her Can show her worth, How from her birth To her last sun's setting And life's forgetting', She brought flowers to deserts and plenty to dearth. And her soft eyes' glances, Ah mo ! ah me 1 "Wore the light that enhances The blue-rippled sea. Tears! Tears! Give me tears all ye sounds, for the death of a singer.
