SPORTING. CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889
SPORTING. CYCLING. On Saturday afternoon last a cycling gathering was held at Pitt Town, when three silver medals, [ given by Mr. Baird, himself a good wheelman, were competed for. Six entries had been received, j but only live cyclists put in an appearance. The distance was about a mile, which was measured by Mr. Jos. Hobbs, and the course was from near Mr. Grono's, on the Caddai Road, to the foot of the hill near Mr. Stubbs house. Mr. A. Wall officiated as starter, Mr. T. Primrose as judge, I and J. C. Fitzpatrick as referee. The starters were Messrs. W. Pendergast (sc.), W. Mortley j 75yds, C. Ireland 80yds, V. Horwood 160yds, F. Teale 230yds. A very good start resulted, and on coming into the main road it could be seen that Mortley held a good lead, with Pendergast and Teale close together and Horwood and Ire land some distance at the rear.

Steaming on the (Australian) Rhine. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889
Steaming on the (Australian) Rhine. (By PAUL TWYFORD.) Still in point of natural beauty the Hawkesbury is much superior. Nothing is barren ; vegetation of some kind-from the stately blue gum to the dwarf mangrove fringing the creeks and river banks, all is green and healthy-looking. Besides, my attention to my interrogative fellow-passengers, I found time to discuss the Ri\er Navigation Question with the Manager of the Company, who was also taking his holidays like the rest of us and who I found to be an intelligent, liberal minded gentleman-albeit, a bit stubborn in his ideas respecting our attempts to get the traffic back to Windsor. He did not know the river above Sackville, and, therefore, spoke from hear say. He seemed to think, however, that the Windsor committee had grossly exaggerated the thing when they stated that £100,000 a year had been lost to the town through the river being silted up. All the traffic on the river did not amount to that. I answered his objections, and ...
In Memory of Paul De Rome. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889
In Memory of Paul De Rome. Farewell, farewell, we never more Thy loving smile shall see, Thy sojourn here on earth is o'er, We sadly mourn for thee. Dear father, 'tis with heartfelt grief We think of thee and weep; But tears they fail to give relief, The wound is sharp and deep. Thy noble brow, thy tottering step, Those locks of hair so grey, We never, never can forget, They all have passed away. Contented with us e'er to share Our troubles when they came, No frown or unkind word was there, He ever was the same. Now he is gone e'er to abide In a better, happier home, We'll let him rest; there's few we'll find To us like Paul De Rome. PETER DE ROME, Stenix Park.

EXPERIMENT TEACHES. ' Sue,' said Tom,' did you hear this T' (Could it be he meant to trick her 1) ' The concussion of a kiss Always makes the gas-flame flicker.'

Something to Read. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889
Something to Read. Touching (he appointments in public offices, isn't it about time a reform was effected in this, as in other things ? In Victoria when vacancies occur in the Railway Department due notice is given thereof, and every man in the country who wishes to do so is permitted to send in an application. This system should be extended as far as possible through the Civil Service of this colony Liv ing in a democratic country where each man is sup posed to have equal rights with his fellow, the political nepotism which is so prominent here should not be tolerated for a day. Public appointments should be as much open to com petition as public contracts. They are public property in which all members of the community are equally interested, and as such the practice of conferring them on the relations of members of Parliament and others who are able to bring influence to bear is quite as reprehensible as the letting of public works without calling for tenders would be. Of course i...

WORSE THAN MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889
WORSE THAN MARRIAGE. A bachelor, old and cranky, Was sitting alone in. his room : His toes with the gout were aching, And liis face wan o'crspread with gloom. No little one's shout disturbed him, From noisos the house was free, In foot, from the attic to cellar Was quiet as quiet could be. No inodical aid was lacking ; The servants answered liis ring, Respectfully heard'his orders, And supplied him with everything:. But still there was something Wanting, Sometliing that he couldn't command : The kindly words of compassion, The touch of a gentle hand. And he said, as bin brow grew darker And he rang for the hireling nurse, ' Well, marriage may be a failure, Hut this is a blamed sight worse.' -Boston Courier,

THE TRAVELLER. A THE UNCROWNED KDTGOF* CHDTA. THE ' PALL MAT.T, BUDGET'S ' TRAVELLING CoK&asaioNEE'S INTERVIEW WITH LI HUNG CHANG. The Emperor of China is invisible to any barbarian eye, and if he were not he is still but a boy and probably knows less about his country than the least of his officials. The real Emperor is the Empress-his aunt, and her proud and determined personality is known to the outside world chiefly through Li Hung Chang. Between the Empress and the great Viceroy there is a close political partnership and an offensive and defensive alliance. Therefore the presence of the Viceroy is the nearest possible approach for a foreigner to the throne of China. And all the world knows that he is one of the most powerful and interesting men in it. Viceroy of the province of Chihli, Senior of the four Grand Secretaries of State, cx officio the guardian of the gate of China, formerly (irpnd Guardian of the Heir Apparent, Pre sident of the Board of War, Superintendent ...

' A Most Respectable Man!' An organ-builder was one day asked what was thought of Mr. Blank as an organist. 'Sir,' he said with mock solemnity, 'he is a most respectable man.' ' Tes, I have no doubt of that, but I want to know how he ranks as a performer on the organ.' ' Sir, he is a most exemplary man, and one who plays as though he were also a charit able man.' ' Now, would you mind telling me what you mean by saying lie performs like a charit able man ?' ' Well, if I must be explicit), Mr. Blank plays upon the organ as though he did not let his left hand know what his right hand was doing.'
