The events to be negotiated on Thursday are-Hurdle Race, Guineas, County Purse, Public Auction Stakes, and September Handicap. The added money amounts to 8621 sovs. On Saturday the events will be- Mem bers' Handicap, l'roduce Stakes, Grand Handi cap, Two-Year-Old Stakes, Disposal Stakes/and Ladies' Bracelet. The added money amounts to 1025 sovs. Large fields are looked forward to, and there is little doubt that the H. R. C. wilf 1 uphold the reputation which it has always en ! joyed for producing well-contested events and splendid sport all round. The first race will start each day at 12.45. The most noticeable move in the betting market is the almost complete knock out of Eyry for the Hawkesbury Handicap, and from 7 to 1 he declined to 100 to 5 offered without takers.

COURSING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888

; COURSING. At the Rosehill Meeting on Thursday, the Rose hill cup ended ina division, among Ruby, Forget Me-Not, Faugh-a-Ballagh and Lady of the Lake, winner of the New South Wales Waterloo Cup and Oaks, the first-uAmed pair being owned by Mr. F. D. Kenyan, a prominent courser in Victoria, while the others are the property of Messrs. Morris, and W. Nixon, (of Clarendon) two of this colony's few enthusiasts. The division met with general dis approval, and however the law may be in favour of such a course it would be much more satis factory if in similar cases in future the stake were reduced to at most two. Having disposed of Bridget, Forget-me-not found Jber way through one of the escapes after puss and had such n gruell ing that it is doubtful if she cotld have gone to slips again. As the stake terminated it was an even thing between this colony and Victoria, and Mr. Longworth won the Purse with Laburnum. A beaten dog stake went to Yellow Girl, by Clyto Boy-Maid of Dorset, and a m...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if vou speak inc fair I'll tell you news, indiftcrent good to either. It occurred some few days ago that a well known local gentleman visited a chemist's estab lishment for the purpose of procuring physic calculated to relieve him of a rather severe cold. The man of pills examined his patient, and shak ing his head (not the patient's but his own), gravely remarked, '. You'll have to take care of that cold, Mr. "Take care of it, be ; I don't want to take care of it-I want to get rid of it," was the rather savage reply. I sat in my sanctum one evening last week, when there arrived on the scene and took up his station on the footway without, a rather queer individual, who. having captured two unsophisti cated youths who happened to be wandering about in search of novelty, forthwith commenced to read them an eloquent lecture on all imaginable sub jects. He first touched on temperance,-a prin ciple with which, judging by the extreme thickness of his s...

TALES, SKETCHES, <fcc. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" CHAPTER IV.-Continued. Vane was quite beside himself. He wandered like a madman over Europe, and even the distant parts of the East, and it was not until many years after that he returned and settled in London, a changed and soured man, without one spark or atom of love left in his souL For all this time he had not seen his daughter Nina, who had been taken charge of by a friend *, and often in his fits of rage he would denounce her as the murderess of his wife. On his return to London, after much persuasion, he was induced to iet her live in his house; but her life was destined, to be one of misery and cruel insult from one who should have cherished her as a . legacy from one he held so dear. Nina Vane was but ten years old when she was taken under the parental roof for the first time since the death of her niother. While yet an infant she was placed in the hands of a Mrs. Janes* the woman who had nursed her mother, and this las...

A PROLONGED EXISTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888

A PROLONGED EXISTENCE. Death was not man's inheritance, but life ! Earth was intended for a paradise of bliss, Unfading beauty, and eternal spring, Till sin invited dire disease into the world. .. No nation can be truly great unless its people be healthy and happy, both socially and morally," remarks a modern writer, and similar sentiments have been expressed by the philosophers of all ages, even if we turn back to the most ancient people. " A sound mind can but dwell in a sound body." said the ancient Roman. To be success ful in life men must purify their system before the mind can have its action in motion, and rise equal to the battle ol life. The fervid preacher of the Gospel, the eloquent advocate of liberty, the mariner exposed to storm, the mechanic bent double in his workshop, all are liable to invasion of disease. Were ready means taken tore-invigor ate the system whenever its powers are felt to be on the decline, disease could not invade the citadel of life. Yet often, whe...

THE WINDSOR AND RICHMOND ©ajette* SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 18S8. Victimising the People. DURING the past few years hook-canvas sers, like the rabbits and such other pests, have been hard at work, and have caused no small amount of anxiety to those people who have, from time to time, tallcn into their clutches. It will lie remembered that some years ago the agents for a well-known historical work, now being published, visited Windsor and the Hawkcsbury, and were innudated with orders, many of the residents going in lor the work complete, whilst others specified some particular portion of it which they were willing to take. Later on, these latter were informed that the order which they signed-being similar to that signed by persons who were pre pared to take the complete work-bound them down to do likewise, and as an in ducement to them to accept the inevit able without grumbling, the report of a test case, tried in Sydney, in which the presiding Judge found in favour of the plaintiffs,...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888

ATHLETICS. Last Tuesday afternoon, a toot-race distance 100 yards for ios. a side, between Charles Har ford and Hughey Riley, came off on the green opposite the meat works Riverstone, in the presence of about 60 spectators. The former con ceded his opponent 2 yards. Both peds seemed confident of winning. The betting was 6 to 4 on Riley. Mr. A. G. Brown acted as starter ; Mr. Con. Hayes judge. The men got well away together, but Riley being quickest on his legs, and running like a piece of machinery, never left the result 111 doubt, and won all out by three yards. -\'o otiicial time was taken (says our Riverstone correspondent), but one private watch took them 15 seconds. I think his watch must have gone cionk. Charles made an excuse that he had eaten too much dinner. There is some talk of another match being made. A footrace took place in Mr. C. Gosper's pad dock 011 Monday between P. Roach and J. Shields for a small stake, Roach winning easily. Several flatters for small amounts ha...

CORRESPONDENCE. RIVAL RAILWAY ROUTES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. (WE do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.] RIVAL RAILWAY ROUTES. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-Mr. Griffin is surprised at my seccession frotn my old belief anent the rival railway routes. There is nothing to be surprised at in this, seeing that all men who take the trouble to think over a matter are open to conviction. It is your hard and fast dogmatist, who thinks he can NEVER go wrong, that cannot be convinced. But it so happens that Mr. Griffin deserted his colours before I did-that is, when he found that his old route was not in favour with Mr. Whitton, and was, therefore, virtually squelched by that gentle man's political superior, he shut himself up with in himself just as close as the proverbial oyster does when interfered with, while I still fought against Mr. Townsend's monstrous proposition to ignore Richmond, which, in fact, 1 do still. During the several years of Mr. Griffin's incar ceration within his own shell, I have, on several occ...
