The Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

The Holidays. The holidays passed off quietly enough in Windsor, Richmond, and district. All those who could do so left town on Monday-and no doubt enjoyed themselves thoroughly. A steamer ex cursion to Lower Portland took place, the steamer Str Albans leaving Windsor Wharf with about 100 passengers on board. The whole party landed at Lower Portland, and spent a pleasant j day. Returning, the boat went on a shoal near Barrett's farm, and after waiting some time the j passengers were put off, and walked round to the j bridge. Every endeavour was made by Mr. Jones and his engineer to avert the necessity for doing j this, but without avail. The work of transferring i 140 passengers, many of whom were ladies and j children, to a small boat from the steamer took some time, but several gentlemen present ren dered assistance, Mr. F. J. Mortley amongst others. The luggage was afterwards taken to the wharf in a small boat. Barring this mishap, the excursion was a most enjoyable one, and it m...

The Late James Augustine Ounneen. [CONTRIBUTED BY VIATOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

The Late James Augustine Ouimeen. [CONTRIBUTED BY VIATOR.] With regret, we have to record the sudden decease of the abovenamed gentleman (caused by his accidentally falling down a flight ot steps, breaking his neck), which occurred at his resi dence, Glenmore-road, Sydney, on the 19th instant. Mr. Cunrieen, at one period of his life, was very popular amongst his young countrymen of the Hawkesbury, and by his talents and perseverence he rose to a position of considerable public im portance. He was born at his father's residence, Mulgrave, about 62 years ago. He received the rudiments of his education from the late Mr. James Cassidy, R.C. Teacher, Windsor, and com pleted hiB studies under a Mr. Murray, an able mathematical scholar, at Sydney. By the way, we may mention that both of these pedagogues were the early educators of that eminent man, the late Sir James Martin. Mr. Cunneen, after he attained manhood, displayed remarkable oratori cal powers. These he exercised at first in the ...

BALLAD OF EARLY LOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

BALLAD OF EAJtLY LOVES. First was my nurse-maid, litll " Kate, Kate with the yellow patch of hair; I was in pinafores-age just eight When I wooed her in Union Square ; When she jilted me-what despair! Vowed that the favoured one I'd slay, The plumber she kissed on the kitchen stair Griefs of the past are joys to-day. Then comes the saddest to relate: Twenty I was, and debonnair, When I cneountered my second' fate ; A coryphtfe in the footlight's glare Took all the heart I had to spare ; Though with a ' super' she skipped away,. Now I'm glad of it, I declare : Griefs of the past are joys to-day. Twenty-two, and I grieve to state, Still a hungry for love's poor fare, A widow I wooed with heart olate; Ah, a narrow escape was thepe. But a husband or twa, I swear, Bobbed up serenely by the wtiy, So I managed to miss the snare ; Griefs of the pafet are joys to-day. ENVOY. Lastly, after all wear and tear Of my heart, I am glad to way; Still you will And it in good repair ; Griefs of the pa...

Basely Ungrateful. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

Basely Ungrateful. An old fellow sat on a rail fence. His hat lay on the ground; hie long hair was tangled and his face wore a revengeful expression. A traveller, noticing the old fellow's hardness of countenance, stopped and thus adddessed him : ' You seem to be worried ?' 4 Am.' ' What's the matter ?' ' Got a duty to perform.' ' It must be an unpleasant one P' ' No, the duty is pleasant enough, but the waiting is tiresome. ' Why do you wait ?' ' See that house up yonder ?' 'Yes.' ' Well, there's a fellow in there that I am going to larrup as soon as he comes out.' ' He has done you an injury, I suppose F' i Tip Tina ' 'What id he do?' ' Well, I'll tell you. He came into this neighbourhood about six months ago, and began to practice medicine. I have been a practising physician in this community for over thirty years, yet I've treated the upstart kindly. How did he repay me P With the basest ingratitude, sir. I'll tell you how it was. About two weeks ago old Peter Nolan was taken aw...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

PERSONALITIES. * Mr. Rylands, the great Manchester manu facturer, almost up to his death, at nearly ninety years, insisted upon conducting per sonally the concerns of his business, which he founded nearly seventy years ago. Every morning he would be driven to his office, and with the kindly connivance of Mb manager and head-clerks make believe to direct affairs as he used to do in former years. One day recently, when the end wos growing near, he was driven as usual to his office. When he wfes helped out of his carriage and looked up at the building, he turned to reenter the car riage, exclaiming, pettishly: ' No, no, I want to go to my own place.' lie did not know the palatial building in which liis later fortunes were cared for, and his failing mind, suddenly turning back for fifty years, saw the modest building in which he had started. The shocking death of a female tamer of wild beasts is reported from Hohenmotli, in Bohemia. She was a girl twenty-six years old, named Bertha Baum...

LADIES' COLUMN. The Unreasonableness of Wives. (By a Husband.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

LADIES' COLUMN. - The Unreasonableness of Wives. (By a Husband.) The majority of wives go upon the general principle that their husbands are made of money. This mistaken notion frequently leads to complications. At the same time it is ut terly useless to argue with a woman, because she has invariably made up her mind long before you begin to speak ; and as long as she gets the last word, you may say what you like in between. Your true woman never has anything to wear, never; yet with great un reasonableness she calls upon her unfortunate husband continually to satisfy the exhorbi tant demands of the milliner, the dressmaker, the draper, and the shoemaker. She is always wanting? a" t'duuiga,* bffijjg- very ill indeed if she doesn't get it ; iu fact her health is a powerful engine for the sub jugation of nor rightful lord, tind jnaater. The rapidity with wli'ch a violent headache comes ou, if she is contradicted, is something startling, only to be equalled liy liua rapidity with which...

What Nicholas Nubbles Says. That H. Moses, M.L.C., and once member for the Hawkesbury, was in town on Saturday. That grass is springing up in splendid style all over the district. That fishing is the pastime of the hoar-bat many of the piscatorial gents get no bites except those administered by myriads of mosquitoes along the creek banks. That it is estimated, with a good season next year, that 20,000 cases of oranges will leave the Knrrajong. That an exchange says: " The cm case is regarded as THE case of the Kurrajong." No slight npon the sobriety of the inhabitants of that beautiful settlement. The writer means that the GIN case is the case most used by the fruitgrowers. That quinces are being extensively grown in the Kurrajong district, and are as profitable as anything else. Last season the Woodstock Canning Com pany offered 2B 6d a case for as many as they could get.

RAILROAD ODDITIES. Curiosities of Travel and Construction. COSTLY WORK, FOG SIGNALS, FUNNY INCIDENTS AND QUEER FEEIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

RAILROAD ODDITIES. Curiosities of Travel and Construction. COSTLY WORK, FOG SIGNALS, FUNNY INCI DENTS AND QUEER FEEIGHT. Ia England, as well as in America, says a writer in the St, Louis Globe-Democrat, rail roads have built up new towns. When the Stockton and Darlington road was opened the city officers of Stockton were slow to offer facilities for the accommodation of the traffic brought by the new road. A few miles be low Stockton on the mud banks of the river, among green fields, stood a solitary farmhouse. Here the railroad company boughtx590 acres of ground, and here, as if by magic, rose the great town of Middlesboro, ' the youngest born town,' as Mr. Gladstone called it, of Great Britain. So it was at Orewe. Where formerly stood one farmhouse is now a railway establish ment that employe 6000 or 7000 men. When Mr. Brunei was at Swindon, forty-five years ago, the furze was'in blossom all round them and there was no eign of human habitations except a few cart ruts indicating a,...

SKETCHER. THE LARGEST MONEY-MAKERS IN THE WORLD. A Visit to the Birmingham Mint. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

- SKETCH ER. THE LARGEST MONEY-MAKERS IN THE WORLD. A Visit to the Birmingham Mint. It isby no means generally known that an appreciable proportion of our bronze and sil ver coins at present in circulation never saw the dies of the Royal Mint on Tower Hill, but are made in Birmingham. Have you never notioed a little letter H on some of the pennies you have had from time to time in your hands P This is the super scription of Messrs. Balpli Heaton and Sons, the proprietors of the Birmingham Mint. The grandfather of the present Ralph Heaton invented the hot shop used at the Biege of Gibraltar, and was pointed out by General Elliott as ' the man who saved Gibraltar.' Money has been made in Birmingham for a long time back. Matthew Boulton issued a large quantity of the old fashioned copper coinage, and in 1850 the Heatons bought the machinery of Soho work when it was sold. Of course the machinery which they use at present is essentially modern and of their own construction. So successful...

Neuralgia, Nervousness, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

Neuralgia, Ner vousness, &c. DEBILITY OR WEAKNESS is caused by an impoverished state of the blood, and is frequently the forerunner of consumption or some other serious disease. There is constant loss of vital power, strength and tissue in the wear and tear of everyday life. A thought cannot pass through the brain, a breath inhaled, a word cannot be spoken, nor a finger moved, without loss and wear to the system; the loss may, in each instance be infinitesimal, nevertheless it is a loss, and as the constant dropping of water will wear away the hardest stone, 60 the constant wear and tear of mental worry, manual labour, &c., will undermine and impair the strongest and most robust constitution. Unless proper restorative treatment is adopted early death must result. The blood is the vital fluid, and performs the office of recuperating the different muscles, nerves, tissues and bones; it travels through the entire system, depositing its nutritious and fortifying matter w...

Typhoid Fever. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 April 1889

Typhoid Fever, AMONG the thousand ills that flesh is heir to, typhoid "fever seems at present to be claiming the majority of victims. It is necessary to say but little with respect to this disease, by which so many colonials are yearly taken away. It has formed the subject of numerous medical exhor tations, and a still larger number of news paper articles. The disease still remains with us, and the unfortunate part of the affair is that many of those who fall Victims, are persons who endeavour to comply, so far as their knowledge goes, with the conditions of life which would ensure immunity from it. No man can be expected to be his brother's keeper, and, moreover, no man can be ex pected to know what bis neighbour is doing. Thus the most careful and cleanly person may have living next door to him someone who is altogether regard less of the commonest requirements of sanitation. Typhoid germs are preva lent in all defective drains and sewer pipes, and if our systems are in a low cond...

Rouse Hill. Nothing of special moment had transpired of late in our quiet little township. A concert is being organised and will shortly be held in the school near the hotel. We earnestly hope the philanthropic zeal of the Rev. C. King and Mr. Levy, together with the other leading spirits, may be productive of good fruit, in the establish ment of a local Uedertafel. A more genial patron j than Mr. E. kouse it would be difficult to find ; and if the young ladies bestir themselves we are confident the forthcoming conversazione will result in a good programme and a well filled house. Mr. Rouse is taking a great interest in all things calculated to benefit the township, and in fact all the family at the " Hill " are doing like wise. In the present Parkes administration six of the members are Australian natives. |
