Kurrajong. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

Kurrajong. This qui£t hamlet was given a little amusement and instruction on May 9. Mr. Thomas Walker, of the S. Public School, Richmond, gave a magic lantern lecture, illusterated by 60 first class elides. The Rev. C. E. Amos, C. E., presided and intro duced the lecturer in a few happy remarks. Mr. Walker opened by showing the Albert-Hall, Lon don's great concert-hall. Then the Honses of Lords and Commons, the coronation chair and stone, the Crown jewels, St. Paul's, Blackfriar's Bridge, and all the principal sights of the Great City. The lecturer was frequently applaused. The usual vote of thanks brought the meeting to a close. It was a treat we could do often with. The new road by Box-hill is found to be a great boon. It is to be hoped Mr. Road-inspector Neilly will not forget his promise in having the three culverts fenced on the lower of road going up to the Heights' side as they are very dangerous now the winter has set in with dark nights. Mr. Fox, the great orange seller of ...

A GIRL'S FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

A GIRL'S FACE. A girl's faoe, -whore the buddiw rose Of youthful beauty blooms and grows By nature's influence, sweet and good, To fuller grace of womanhood; Ib there A sight on earth so fair 1 Consider well the raven hail' That clouds the forehead pure and white The lovely eyes, like stars of light, Jn whose clear, hazel glance is seen The soul untroubled and serene ; . The ripe, bewitching lips that part With 8miles like sunshine of tue heart; And all the charms unnoted here That blossom sweet from year to year. Time changes all. The fairest day Of shoit-lived tummer fades away, And on the wintry garden-bed, The petals of the rose arc shed ; Time steals the splendour from the hair, And marks the brow with lines of care ; But there are beauties of the soul That time and change may not control; The faith and love that still am blind To others' faults, and good and kind, And swift to help with blessed deeds A sister's or a brother's needs, These grow with years in brighter grace, And...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

Letters to the Editor. SIR,-I am only a plain farming man, and I hope you'll excuse the liberty I'm taking, but your paper is real good and no mistake, and I often feel as if I should like to ask you a question or so if you didn't mind the trouble of answering them. It's not only me, you know, but often I've heard neighbours talk this way, you understand, and I thought I'd just make bold to ask if you couldn't give us a chance. You needn't print my name, you know; you can call me COUNTRY" BUMPKIN. [We shall be glad to answer, or endeavour to do so, any questions which our constituents may in future care to put, even though they should deluge us with communica tions on all imaginable subjects. We draw the line at legal questions-we are not a " busb lawyer," and if people want " cheap law " (and nasty, too,) they must go a little farther river ' wards. -ED.]

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak nie fair I'll teil you news, indiflerent good to either. It happened on the Show ground on Saturday last that the Member for the district, Mr. Alick Bowman, was in conversation with several pro minent constituents, when one remarked to another, " Don't annoy the man about politics to-day." Oh, I'm only making his position secure," laughingly replied the other. " If you want to do that you had better get Mr. - (an unsuccessful candidate in one or two contests for the Hawkesbury, who was standing by) not to oppose Mr. Bowman again." " I have promised," remarked the gentleman referred to, in a tone which conveyed the impression that he had per formed a very magnanimous action. Many long years ago a case of horse-sweating was heard at the Windsor Police Court, when a lad, who is now a middle-aged and well-to-do fanner in the district, was called as a witness. A local solicitor, in oriler to shake his testimony, put the tisun! questions t...

Important Discovery of Coal. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

Important Discovery of Coal. Notwithstanding that Riverstone is so much " fly-blown "-according to certain clever per sons-there are evident signs of its future pros perity-if not just immediately, at no very remote period. From time to time there have been heard rumours of coal discoveries, and specimens have been exhibited by various persons, but nothing seems to have been done. Once more do we hear of a coal field in embryo-this time on the banks of South Creek, about a quarter of a mile from Clydesdale Church, on the property of J. Hardie, Jun., Esq., of Clydesdale. The pros pectors are Messrs. Alfred Smith, G. Eather (both of Richmond), and W. Melville, of Berk shire Park-the first-named gentleman being the discoverer. The vein crops out of the eastern bank of the Creek, slightly above water level, and dips into the bank. At this place the coal, which is highfv bituminous, is from half an inch to one inch and a half thick. Two men are employed, both competent miners, sinking a ...

PERSONALITIES. ANECDOTES OF BISMAECK PEN PICTURES FROM THE LETTERS OF J. L. MOTLEY.

It is one of those houses where every one does what one likes. The show apartments where they receive formal company are on the front of the house. Their living rooms, however, are a salon and dining-room at the back, opening upon the garden. Here there are young and old, grandparents and children and dogs all at once, eating, drinking, smoking, piano-play ing, and pistol-playing (in the garden), all going on at the same time. It is one of those establishments where every earthly thing that can be eaten or drunk is offered you: porter, soda-water, cha...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

VARIETIES. Berlin is broadly catholic in her taste, and magnificently free from prejudices in respect to beer. Herself a brewer on a large scale, shedrinks the beers of Vienna, Pilsen, Munich Erlangen, and even Strassburg, no less freely that her own renowned ' Tivoli' and ' Bock.' Beside* these latter, and her so-called 'Ex port Bier'-a light and refreshing sort of oottlsd porter-she produces and consumes in enormous floods a mawkish lipuid yclept * Weiss-Bier,' or white beer, which to the uncultivated palate of the foreigner tastes like sour soda-water slightly flavoured with yellow soap. This pale and frothy prepara tion is imbibed from enormous glass vessels, resembling no liquor receptacle known in this country, and which must be graspSd in both Lands in order to convey their contents to the lips of the drinker. White beer is the favourite drink of the true-born Berliner, and is equally at home in the hovels of the poor and the palaces of kings throughout the Mark Brandenburg. ...

His orders from Colonel Brainard was to go to Dunraven, and, if he foundjlhe marauders there, to arrest the en tire party and bring them back to the post. 'From all that could be learned from hurried questioning of the .sentries and the dazed, half drunken sergeant at the corral, the troopers, engaged in the r^id must have selected a time when the sentry was walking towards the south end of his post to lift one of their number over the wall of the enclosure in which were kept the wagons and aribul anoes. This man had unbarred from within the gate leading eastward to the trail down which ^the 'stock' was driven daily to the water in the Monee.
