WESLEYAN BAZAAR AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 September 1888
WESLEYAN BAZAAR AT RICHMOND. 11 If people did not like Bazaars they would not go to them, and if Bazaars did not answer they Would not be organized. The getting up of them provides amusement and occupation for a great many people who might otherwise be idle or mare mischievously employed, and sometimes attention is called to really good objects. Personally, I always like to see a collection of pretty wcmen, well dressed, and full of life and animation : and this, I fancy, is about the secret of a good deal of bazaar enthusiasm and philanthropic zeal." TRUTH. " A thing of beauth is a joy for ever." &> said poor dead and gone Keats, and so we reiterate the statement. We visited the bazaar, opened at the Richmond School of Arts yesterday (Fri day) morning, and were much pleased with the very excellent display of articles with which the stalls were strewn. The bazaar, it may be men tioned, was organized for the purpose of procur ing funds in aid of the Wesleyan Church at ...

LAND NATIONALIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
LAND NATIONALIZATION. The Henry George aspect of the land question has penetrated from the country districts into Sydney, and a head-centre New South Wales Land Nationalisation League has been formed, pledged to the single tax method of raising revenue, viz, -by an appropriation by the State of all unimproved land values. All improve ments would then go free, industry would be absolved from paying tribute, and the only thing the nation would annex for the expenses of government, and the benefit of the whole community, would be the wealth caused by the needs of popu lation, the increase of the birth-rate and the aggregate prosperity attendant upon community's energy and enterprise. At present this wealth, created by the people is absorbed wrongfully by the owner of priv ate property. Make Land Nationalisation a reality and it will flow into the coffers of the State, the people who really created it. The movement shows plenty of native vigour and the young Austral ians are rallying ro...
CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
HAPTEU VI. Leslie D'Eyncourt arrived at Mrs. Dacrc's earlier than lie usually did at evening' parties, for, like most fashionable men, he had that had habit of generally being late. When he entered the room he found Nina standing b}' Mrs. Dacre, with whom she was a great favourite, and who, more over, knew of her engagement to him, and of her father's cruel opposition. After paying some attentions to his hostess, she said, turning to Nina, 4 Now, I suppose, you wicked, disobedient young people have lots to say to each other, and are dying to say it, so I must let you go ; but mind, I shall expect to see something more of both of you, so do not lude away!' Leslie, as soon as he cast eyes on Nina, and the pained look in her face, saw something had gone wrong, and he deter mined to know what it was. Alone with Nina in the conservatory, he made her tell liiin what had passed even to the words her father had uttered against him. She spoke reluctantly, the words being almost dragged from ...

A LION STORY (TRUE). [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
A LION STORY (TRUE). Mr. Anderson relates in his ' Twenty five Years in a Wagon,' that one day while sitting under a baobab-tree in South African forest, he heard the sound of loud, deep bass voices. Lying down among the grass, rifle in hand, he waited, as the animals seemed to be approaching. He soon saw a lion and a lioness quarell ing, about seventy yards from the tree. The lioness kept throwing back her ears and showing her teeth, at the same time pawing the lion in the face and lashing out with her tail. The lion took it all with quiet dignity, now and then growl ing out a remonstrance. At last the lioness, giving several cat-like spits, bounded into the bush, and the lion walked off in another direction. A hunter told Mr. Anderson that he once watched a lion and a lioness from a tree. Another lion began roaring in the distance, where upon the lioness, in spite of lion's efforts to prevent her, roared in reply. At last the other lion appeared, and each roared out a challenge. A...

SCISSORS AND" PASTE". AND there ill the privacy of his sanctum the colonel sal, and edited his paper with predatory shears and a dishonest paste pot.-Max Adeler.

THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
THE FARMER. You can't make good butter unless you have a dairy room, and that properly ventilated and the temperature under your control One of the strongest arguments in favour of the ensilage system is that without it northern farmers find it almost impossible to properly feed animals intended for the dairy. Soft-wooded charcoal ought always to be kept in the cow stable. If a cow does not look bright, give her a tea-cupfull in her bran or other feed and wet it. If her breath is bad, her horns hot and her nose dry, she is dyspeptic and feverish. Give her charcoal. If she has hollow horns, sure and no mistake, give charcoal, half a teaspoonful each meal for three or four days. It is an excellent thing to give charcoal all round once a week. It is the best regulator of stomach and bowels. Prof. Henry gives the following as a good ration for a dairy cow where corn fodder constitutes he main portion of the coarse fodder: Corn-stalks cut, 15 to 18 lbs,; clover hay, five lbs, ; bran, six...
FIRESIDE DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
FIRESIDE DREAMS. Now, dreams of old before me flit, Tlicjy come from shadow-land to-night, While lic-ve before the fire I sit, a!,.sing in the glowing light. I st;.: a tall and stately ship &lt; hitward bound for foreign lands, My mother's kiss is on my lip, I foul the parting grasp of hands. The crested waves rise mountains high, The lightning plays and thunders roar, I see the clear and cloudless sky, And the welcome sight of a foreign shore ; But dearer to me is a sight I see, "Tis a maiden sitting all alone, She thinks of her lover far over the sea, And is lonely, lonely till he return. I cnn trace with my eyes on the embers red, My pleasant, happy childhood's days, Those years that have for ever fled When youth departs from wisdom's ways, And tno wailing winds of winter pass O'er the hearts of friends beneath the grass, And as they sweep by vale and height I leol ill) self alone to-night. p O C a November 27, 1884.
