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

NELSON. In viewing the Nelson district, one has ample opportunity of exercising his thoughts. In days gone by, Nelson bore the name of North Rocks, and was looked upon as a poor out of the way place. This was owing to the inhabitants, who seemingly had no get-away in them, but would choose and select a little secluded spot, and there would spend their days in harmony, the husband man occupying the greater portion of his life in bark-getting, shingle-splitting, and bee-hunting, occupations which were in those times very brisk. One would be inclined to think now-a-days this a tough job-humping bark and shingles on their shoulders out of gullies, and carrying cooloomons of honey miles over the rocky out of the way parts of the district (where the wallaby leaps ana the dingoes nightly yell). If a neighbour or friend should happen to come their way, they would gather together around a glorious and brilliant fire, and there would play the fife or violin, and spin many a good old yarn. Lat...

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

POPULAR SCIENCE. A Minneapolis printer who is something of an electrician as well, Ti«a devised a pro cess of matrix-making .by electricity, wnich it is thought will do away with the use of moveable types and reduce the cost of print ing one-half. The remedy against sore throats of wear ing a few threads of Barlip. wool around the throat is said to act "by keeping up a of skin action and so acting .as a counter-irri tant. Portable electric lights, arranged to hang on a button of one's coat, end with a para bolic reflector to concentrate the light, with storage batteries weighing one and one-half pounds each, are made to enable persons to read in railroad cars by night. Sir John Lubbock, in an article on ' Problematical Organs of Sense,' in the Popular Science Monthly, expounds the allur ing theory that ' the familiar world which surrounds us may be a totally different place to other animals. To them it may be full of music which we can not hear, of colour which we cannot see, of sen...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifferent good to either. Mr. John Coorabe, of Wellington, N.Z., has made a literary discovery of considerable interest, j seeing that it goes to show how even such a past- j master in literary work as Charles Dickens was guilty in his writings of the most absurd inconsis tency and carelessness. I do not remember ever having seen the discrepancies here referred to alluded to by any writer on Dickens' works, and if they have escaped the notice of critics up to the present, Mr. Coombe's discovery is as valuable as it is curious. Mr. Coombe, it appears, has been reading "Dombey and Son," and, it being the third or fourth time of his reading that delightful book, he has been reading it critically. Here is the result. He has found that on three occasions Dickens has forgotten that his own creation, Cap tain Cuttle, had only one sound arm, one of those useful limbs in the captain's case terminating in a hook. ...

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

Opposition Dibbs. This is not the place to discuss the enormity of the ministerial proposals for extinguishing the defict. Nor is it the time to show how the ac counts had been cooked by the late Parkes' Ministry. Mr. McMillan himself showed that very clearly, To say so may seem very bad taste and the outcome of ignorance, but to me Mr. Dibbs appears as the first treasurer who dealt with the public funds as a financier, the first man who had to do other than spend in the good old style the money derived from the criminal alienation of the public estate. Mr. Dibbs has not the same length of record as his sworn foe, but throughout the country he seems to be equally well known. The Bulletin's clever cartoon representing him delivering his first buoget speech of the Stuart Government, with his foot nrmly placed upon the jobberies of his predecessors, gives those who remember it a good idea of how he delivers his speeches. Unlike Parkes, he is ex citable. He reaches the table often by me...

NOVEL. Dunraven Ranch. (CONTINUED.) CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 May 1889

NOVEL. ? Dun raven Ranch. BY CHARLES KING (in Lippincott's). (CONTDTOED.) CHAPTER XII. To use the expression of Mr. Dana, ' Ned Perry seemed on his feed' for a day or two. The hunt had been pronounced a big Buccess, despite the fact of Perry's defection,-he had not even joined them at luncheon,-and it was agreed it should be repeated the first bright day after muster. That ceremony came off on Monday with due pomp and for mality and much rigidity of inspection by the po§t commander. It was watched wim interest by the-ladies, and Mrs. Belknap even proposed that whenthe barracks and kitchen were being examined they should go along1. Dana had been her devotee over since the day of the hunt, and announced his willingness to carry her suggestion to the colonel, but Bel lmap declined. She wanted a few words with Parry, and did not know how to effect her purpose. When he stopped and spoke to her after parade on Saturday evening and would have made peace, she thought to complete lier Bppare...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

Letters to the Editor. SIR,-Your facetious paragraphist, " Nicholas Nubbles," is entirely astray in his last week's con tributions to your columns, when he says " a large number of Windsor people witnessed the official opening of the Hawkesbury Bridge." A large number SHOULD have witnessed it, but owing to fog, and other circumstances not worth mention ing, they didn't. How many of the invited guests were Windsorites, I cannot say-though I fancy they were extremely small in number ; while the uninvited ones were confined to FOUR persons at the most. Yours, &c., QNI£ WHO WAS TUURE. Windsor, 8th May, 1889. SIB,-I am sorely perplexed-not to say vexed -at the utterances of some of our Single-Taxers at the late Conference; and knowing you to be an ardent disciple of Henry George, I venture to address you on the matter, owing to corres pondence being tabooed by the management of the "Standard "-as I thmk, very injudiciously.

SAM WAH LEE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

8Ail WAH LEE. It was only a week or two ago, la u kingdom by the sea, That there lived a heatlica whom you may know By the name of Sam Wah Lee. Ana this heathen he seemed to have no other thought Than to euchre and bamboozle me. I had a choque and he had a peek Of clothing he washed for me ; Sinee the cheque I did Iohc I heard him refuse The bundle to let me see ; So I climbed all over his dusky frame In that kingdom by the sea. And this was the reason, a week ago, In the kingdom by the sea, I climbed on the neck, on the willowy neck, Of the radiant Satn Wah Lee. So that a high-bora peeler came And pulled him away from me, And shut me up in the city jail, In that kingdom by the sea. The bundle of clothing the heathen had washed Wan needed quite sorely by me ; And that was the reason (as all men know In this kingdom by the sea) That I camped on the heathen's symmetrical fottn, Knocking the stuffing from Sam Wah Lee. And my fine it was higher by far than the fine I thought would be le...
