FOREVER. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

F011EVER. Those we love truly never die, Though year by year the sad memorial wreath, A ring and flowers, types of life and death, Are laid upon tiitir graves. For death the pure life saves, And life all pure is love, and love can reach From heaven to earth and nobler lessons teach Than those by mortals read. Well blessed is he who has a dear one dead; A friend he has whose face will never change; A sweet communion that ne'er will grow strange ; The anchor of a love is death. The blessed sweetness of a loving breath Will reach our cheek all fresh through weary years. For her who died long since, ah 1 waste not tears, She's thine unto the end I Thank God for one dear friend, With faith still radiant with the light of truth; Whose love comes laden with the scent of youth Through twenty years of death. -John Boyle O Reiuy*

ART & LITERATURE [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

ART & LITERATURE W. S. Gilbert, of the Gilbert and Sullivan firm, does hie writing at a table upon which the light falls from a uvullioned window across his paper. His house is described as little short of a palaoe ; but oven the dwellers in Silaoes must work, and Mr. Gilbert keeps mfielf busy, not only in writing plays, but in designing the costumes for actors and ac tresses. He was asked recently if he had any standard of taste for stage costumes. ' Most decidedly I have,' said he ; ' 1 will allow no one to appear on theEtage in any piece which j I may control in a dress whiah might not be I worn 'at a fancy-dress ball. I consider our Eieccs at the Savoy to bi» burlesque, and I ave never allowed a lady to play a man's ? part, or to wear a costume that she would blush to appear in at a fancy-dress ball. This is my limit. I would abolish tights if they were merely worn to enhance the attrac tions of the legs. A Rosalind may wear decent tights, but they are neccssary for the ...

WILBERFORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

WILBERFORCE. DEBATING SOCIETY. - The usual fortnightly meeting of the above was held on Wednesday evening, when Mr. Stevens occupied the chair. The subject for debate was, " Should the franchise be extended to women." On behalf of the Ministry, Mr. J. C. Fitzpatrick opened the debate in the negative. Mr. Gordon followed, and traversed the arguments of the previous speaker. Messrs. Stevens and James Cobcroft spoke in favour of the Government, and Mr. H. Bowd against. On a vote being taken, the Government gained a victory by a majority of one. The next debate will be, " Which would confer the greater benefit on the district, the clearing of the river, or the construction of the proposed tramway from Sackville Reach." The Ministry will advocate the former, and as the question is of some local interest it is to be hoped that there will be a good attendance of members and the general public. On Wednesday week next, the meeting of the society will be held in Mr. Bennett's Hall, arrangemen...

Neuralgia, Nervousness, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 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 6poken, nor a finger moved, without loss and wear to the system; the I0S6 may, in each instance be infinitesimal, nevertheless it iB a loss, and as the constant dropping of water will wear away the hardest stone, BO the constant wear and tear of mental worry, manual labour, <ftc., will undermine and impair the strongest and most robust constitution.

A Passage-at-Arms between Mr. Gladstone and Lord R, Churchill. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

A Passage-at-Arms between Mr. Glad stone and Lord R, Churchill On the night to which my notes refer the debate was resumed by Lord Randolph Churchill, who, then seated below the gang way, irresponsible and irrepressible, had an hour's perfect enjoyment. Standing below his corner seat, with eye watchfully fixed on the mobile figure stretched out in the seat of the Leader of the House, he pricked and goaded him as the sprightly matador in the arena girds at the infuriate bull, which, if it were only intelligently to expend its force, would tear the human mite into unrecognis able shreds. At first the Premier assumed an attitude of ordinary attention, with his legs crossed, hands folded go that they caressed either elbow. He threw back liis head and closed his eyes, the light from the roof falling on a perfectly placid countenance. But I as Lono BAJWOirn .? , went on with quip aud crauk. audacious ac cusation and reckless misrepresentation of faot or argument, he lifted his liead, shuf...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

PERSONALITIES. "Mian Braddon, whose novels have made her familiar to every Australian, is a tall, active minded woman of fifty-two, with gray hair and a ruddy complexion. She is the daughter of a solicitor and has a oountry house in the heart of the New Forest. She is an expert horsewoman, writes three novels a year, and is married to her publisher. Verdi, the composer and philanthropist, has erected and equipped a hospital at Villanova, and has also deposited funds sufficient for its maintenance. It is a large and unpretentious building, commanding a fine view of the river Po and the Appennines in the distance. There are wings for the separate treatment of the sexes, a ward for oontagious diseases, and a hydropathic department, while all the ar rangements are elaborate and modern. With characteristic modesty the giver refused to let the institution be named after himself, and it is to be known simply as the hospital of Vil lanova.

A diteijuTt problem is presented to French \v$heiiJdi?sh-in<r to conform to the Fashion of wearing-'llowers by the way in wliich certain flowers liav6 become attached to political ideas. For example, the violet is the symbol of 'the Bortapartists. Boulanger claims the carnation. The corn-flower is recognized as German, aud the rose has been appropriated by the Orleanitbts.

THE BISHOP AND THE BALLET GIRLS. A STORY OF THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

THE BISHOP AKD THE BALLET GIRLS. A STORY OF THE STAGE. Every reader of the daily papers has heard of the great debate iii the Pan-Anglican Synod on that momentous topic, 4 The atti tude of the church towards the stage.' The Bishop of Sadler's Wells it was who, on that occasion, took up his parable on behalf not only of the drama as a fine art, but on behalf of actors and actresses as human beings. Hiw lordship even went the length of saying a word in defcnce. of the ballet-girl, being nobly seconded in this respect by the Bishop of Fiji, who stated that in his own diocese saltatory exercises, not dissimilar from those of the ballet, were considered to possess a deep reli gious significance. One or two other liberal minded prelates took the same side ,* but, on the whole, the feeling of the meeting ran high the other way. Indeed, so warm became some of their lordships that, if the conference had not had to rise early in order to attend the banquet given in their honour by the J Poult...

Steaming on the (Australian) Rhine. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

Steaming' on the (Australian) Rhine. (BY PAUL IWYFORD.) It is many years since the writer took steamer at Rotterdam, and sieamed up the glorious old Rhine of continental tourists. Those were the sunny days of youth, and pleasure sat at the helm; and though by no means an unobservant youngster, I left the steamer at Carlorhne not overpoweringly oppressed with the magnificence of Europe's most poetic of rivers. Cologne (Ko1n, Coleridge's city of twenty distinct stinks), Cobldntz, Wiesbaden, Mannheim, Heidelberg, and other smaller towns EN ROUTE were visited, but none, so far as my memory serves me, were particularly entrancing. The steamer itself was a wretched, uncomfortable affair, and the provender supplied to passengers was of the worst descrip ticn. Once on the Rhine is enough for a life time, was my thought at the time, despite ruined castles, romances, and guide books -and I do not think my opinion would be altered one jot were I to see the far-famed towers of Heidelberg to mor...
