TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

TALES, SKETCHES, <fec. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" As he walked up the lawn he met Nina, who, hat in hand, was busy gathering roses, and the stoical professor thought he had never seen so charming a picture. ' Good day, Miss Dalroy,' he said. ' How is it that the party at Salt Island is not graced with your presence ?' ' Well, Mr. Vane, the truth is that I have so shamefully neglected, my domes tic duties this last week, that I am inflict ing a penance on myself to-day. You see that 1113' garden was becoming a complete wilderness : and then pupa's books had not been dusted or arranged for ever so long, and he does not like the servants to touch them; so L thought it was my duty to stay at home and do some work to-day.'

The Water Supply. The prospects of Windsor being favoured with ,i water supply at no very distant dnte are daily becoming brighter. Our energetic and progressive Mayor, Mr. Mortley, has been quite an enthusiast with reference to this matter, and we venture to predict that before the present municipal year comes to a close, the scheme at present under consideration will have been accepted by the authorities, and the work in connection there with actually commenced. The facts which have been marshalled together by the Mayor are utterly unanswerable in their strength, and with s ich evidence placed before him, the ...

THE PROPOSED WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

THE PROPOSED WATER SUPPLY. AN erroneous impression appears to have got abroad to the effect that the Council has no power to impose a charge of 5s per room for the supply of water, inasmuch as its powers are limited by the Municipalities' Act which provides that the general and special rates levied shall not exceed 2s in the £. We may refer those who are interested, how ever, to the Country Towns Water and Sewerage Act, dealing with the qualified repeal of certain clauses the Municipalities' Act of 1867, and which we publish below for the information of all con cemde. The clause reads : 2. So much of the one hundred and sixty-fifth and one hundred and sixty-sixth sections of the " Municipalities Act of 1867" 318 limits the rates leviable in respect of works for water supply or sewerage to the respective amounts therein pre scribed so much of the one hundred and sixty eighth section of the said Act as declares that special and general rates for any Municipality shall not exceed the a...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

ATHLETICS On Saturday night, D. H. Bushell was disquali fied for six months for stopping in a most delibe rate manner fn the second heat of the Carrington Spring Handicap, a few yards from the judge. The DAILY TELEGRAPH says:-Of Bushell it may be said that the penalty was richly deserved, and it is rather to be wondered at that he was not long since placed under the ban. He also met with a rough handling from some of the spectators who bad supported him, and was glad of the opportu nity, when it presented itself, o£ taking a handed. departure from the ground. He was hooted again and again by the spectators, and he deserved all he got. Hunt was disqualified for life last week in Sydney. The Carrington Spring Handicap on Saturday resulted as follows: Betting : 4 to 1 on Parker. Parker ran clean away from his followers in the first 80 yards, and won in ridiculously easy style by three yards. Hoelscher was second ana Mor rissy last. Time, 13 g-iosec.

THE OLD WINDSOR DOCTORS. (SOME REMINESCENCES BY W. W.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

THE OLD WINDSOR DOCTORS, (SOME REMINESCENCES BY W. It is proverbial for doctors to differ, and the triteness of the adage was. I believe, never more exemplified than it was amongst the medicos of Windsor in bygone times. Our little town was once favored with no leas than four gentlemen of the medical profession, all eager to outstrip each other in adminstering to bodily diseases. But they were everlastingly quarrelling amongst them selves, to the great regret and annoyance of the people and to the injury of their own reputations The eldest was Dr. Blanc (they were all called doctors), an Englishman of plausible manners and gentlemanly exterior. For some mistake in his early life, he involuntarily-in the language of Barrington-" left his country for his country's good." He was a great favourite with the old hands, though his name never appeared in the list of legally qualified practitioners. His explana tion of this was that he had been a surgeon in the army, but that he had Ipst his...

The District. Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

The District. Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) SATISFACTORY RETURNS FROM THE SINGLETOM SHOW.-Our local exhibitors at the Singleton Agricultural Show can hardly complain of the result of their enterprise in taking their exhibits so great a distance from home. Mr. William Mitchell was accorded two first prizes for a sulky and spring cart, whilsl be was highly commended for a buggy that had been in heavy use six months This is a feather in the cap of the proprietor of that well-known vehicle-building establishment. I am informed Mr. Mitchell disposed of his vehicles in Singleton at a good figure. Again, we have that well-known prize stock breeder, Mr. J. E. Onus, bringing back two or three prizes for stock. This must be very gratifying to the owner, who spares no expense to produce draught stock good enough to warrant their exhibition among any in the colonies. OPPOSITION SKATING.-So great a hold has this amusement taken upon the minds of the good people of Richmond that Messrs...

THE VALLEY OF ST. ALBANS. CONTRIBUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

THE VALLEY OF ST. ALBANS. CONTRIBUTED. 'Twas a bright spring morning-the sun was just rising in all its magnificence and splendour-as I emerged from out the shadows of the dark green forest, in the Hawkesbury district, through which I had been travelling the whole night, and wandered along a rough rugged road at the base of a mountain-the cragged cliffs rising almost perpendicularly on my left, and the M'Donald River silently rippling its course along on the right. From this road the small but picturesque township of St. Albans, lying almost enshrouded in mist, and guarded by high lofty ranges, which almost encircled it, could lie seen. The radiant sun burst forth in all its glory and brightness, depicting a scene of un rivalled beauty, shining as it did upon the rippling waters of the silent stream, and causing the dewdrops which still lingered upon their verdant beds to sparkle and glisten like a huge casket of precious stones, under itsgloriousglare. The hazy mist slowly cleared ...
