PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
PERSONAL. ONE oftentimes comes across many amusing advertisements in the " Personal" column of metropolitan papers. Here, for instance, is one-not a very humor ous one, certainly, but rather the opposite: -Ann, dearest, I am very lonely ; for give me-come home. J.G." But it may be made humorous. Now, don't hurry, Ann. You take your time. He was very independent after that little barney you had about who should step out on the cold oil-cloth that wet morning and take in the milk, but you can just take our word for it he is crumpled up now. You should have seen him trying to cook the fish the morning after you left It was a sight to see the bream each time he snatched up something wanted for the cooking, come leaping out on the floor. It was a sweet thing, too, ' Ann, dearest,' to behold him making coffee in the tea pot, and forget ting to take the leaves out. Quite a crowd of the neighbours, also, assembled in the next yard to behold him holding the screaming family under the water-t...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listrn to me, anil if you speak me fair I'll toll yon news, indi Anient good to either. Tt is not many years since that all persons who hnd any connection whatever with the stage and the drama -rvere looked upon by the " unco guid " iu a no friendly light. In fact, in days gone by it was usual in many continental hamlets and villages for the peasants to remove their week's washing from the line when the announcement went forth that a band of strolling players was in the immediate vicinity. The whole aspect of affairs is gradually undergoing a change, however, and the acquaintance of the prominent actresses and actors of the day is courted by all who claim to be lovers of art, genius, and beauty. And why should this not be so ? Why should the ex ponents of the delightful characters, male and female, created by Shakespeare, Goldsmith, Lylton, Taylor, and other distinguisued authors, be loolce.l upon with a disdain and repugnance such as was the case early in the pre...

TALES, SKETCHES, &lt;fcc., "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" 4 Hold,' said the girl, in a voice whose metallic ring startled him into silence. . RIc you may assail as you will ; against) him nothing shall be said in my hearing! llis honour is unstained, and if I asked it , he would release me from my promise to morrow. But he will not give me up and I will not ask him at a bidding which has neither reason nor justice. He tried to see you; vou refused; he wrote to you and vou flung his letter unopened into the hr^. For myself Iwill never break my faith with him nou will I be parted from hiiu because you chose to say he i^ a roue !

RIVAL RAILWAY ROUTES. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
RIVAL RAILWAY ROUTES. (TO THE EDITOR.) SiK,-In my last communication to you there are some mistakes-attribu table, of course, to the broad-backed comp-which I ask you to kindly correct, otherwise, parts ot my letter will seem ambiguous. First, I am made to say at lines 7 and 8 of second paragraph, " vastly superior to Mr. Griffin's old route ; and so I find it in regard to Mr. Shitrkey's old route." The word "old" surplusage, as you will see by my manu script. Second, in the seventh line of third paragraph the word *4 STRANGER " is used ; my word was STAYER, which sport ing men will understand better than stranger. Third, in the 17th line of the fourth paragraph the word "system" should be SYSTEMS ; and fourth, lower down in the same paragraph I am made to say that Mr. Gipps proposed line, via the Warragamba, " will not" give the same amount of relief as Mr. Sharkey's proposed loop-line, whereas I said that it WILL. You will, I am sure, observe the VERY great difference four such er...

Test For Readers. A PRIZE OFFERED. IT will amuse readers, perhaps, so test themselves in their knowledge of English poetry. The pro prietor will not offer a thousand pounds to the best correspondent, because if that correspondent does what is asked, he or she is rich enough already ; but as an inducement, we offer a prize of half-a-guinea to the person who succeeds in furnishing the name of the respective selection from which the undermentioned lines are taken within one month from the date of publication of this issue.

SPORTING. AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
SPORTING. [THE secretaries of all local clubs and sporting organisations are requested to furnish us with reports of their meetings or gatherings at as early a date as possible. Sporting fixtures will be gladly inserted, and any information of general interest received with thanks ] AQUATICS. Mr. R. K. Fox, of the '* New York Police GAZETTE." appears very anxious to get Peter Kemp over to America for a trial with Teemer. He will give a purse of /iooo and allow Peter /200 for expenses on the understanding that the race carries the championship of the world, and further that the race shall take place " this fall" Under no consideration whatever will Peter visit America to accomodate Teemer. He is ready with his money to make a match with any man in the world, but he will have to come here. With reference to the Hanlan-Trickett race, the Canadian " Sportsman" says :-I have heard several people say since the report of the Hanlan Trickett race reached us, setting forth that the Toronto s...
TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
TURF. Mr. Andrew Town, we learn, has nominated Honesty and Childe Harold for the Australian Sires Produce Stakes of 1892. Entrance gales for Hawkesbury Spring Meet ing purchased for ^227, by Mr. J. Griffiths. The beautiful pony stallion Fred, recently pur chased in Queensland by Mr. G. Yeo, of Mulgrave, to take the place of the imported pony stallion Sir Thomas, which Mr. Yeo had the misfortune to lose some few weeks ago arrived in Sydney on Saturday and was visited by a large number of horse-flesh fanciers on Monday and Tuesday. Fred is a dark chesnut, very compact, showing lots of quality, and should nick well with Uncle Tom's fillies. By the way, we notice reports of Uncle Tom's success in the show rings in Queens land since he left his old quarters at Mulgrave. Plutarch remains first favourite for the Hawkes bury Handicap to-day. All sportsmen will regret to learn that news was received in Sydney yesterday announcing the breaking down of the Melbourne Cup winner Dunlop. A genera...

Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) GERMAN CHARLIE.--Dr. Charlie commenced practice again on Sunday last, after having a week's spell. As usual, crowds of patients came from all parts of the country. It makes the rail- way station quite lively, and when the trains ar- rive you will hear the coach-drivers echo : ' This way for German Charlie." I still hear of long standing diseases being cured by the German, which other medical men have failed to heal. ROADS.--The road leading from the station to the Blacktown Road (German Charlie's consult- rooms), is being gravelled. It was badly wanted, as there is a deal of traffic upon it and it was terribly cut up. DEPARTURE.-Mr. McMillan, who has been a storekeeper here for some time, has sold out, he having entered into partnership with Mr. Jacob Bentel, and purchased the good will of the Cri- terion Hotel at Robertson, with a lease of nine and a half years. I wish Mac. and Mr. Bentel success in the south. CONCERT.-Another concert in aid of...
AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888
AQUATICS. The sculling match on Saturday afternoon last between H. Atkins and F. Douglas was witnessed by a large number of spectators. Atkins was the favourite in the betting. Both scullers got away to a good start shortly after 3 o'clock, but they had not proceeded far on their journey before Atkins took the lead, which he maintained to the finish, winning rather easy by about six lengths. It was stated that Douglas's easy defeat was attributable to one of the rowlocks of his boat giving away. A. Atkins, in his outrigger, acted as coach.
AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888
AQUATICS. Searle beat Neilson easily by six lengths on Friday last. All the Wilberforce backers of the latter went down. John Ford is quite willing to make a match with Atltins, who defeated Douglas a week or two ago. He will row for any money up to £50. and is pre pared at any time to lodge the first deposit in the hands of a stakeholder. Ford evidently means business, and his motto is. " Stuff up, or shut up." We believe that his friends object to Atkins entering into a match with Ford, for the present at any rate The race for the champianship, between Peter Kemp, the Hmvkesbury sc'.ilier, and Champion of the World, and Edward Har.lan, takes place on Friday next over the Parramatta Course The interest taken in the event is not very lively, principally for the reason that many people look upon the result as a foregone conclusion, but as the day approaches the betting market will doubt less become more animated. Notwithstanding his repeated defeats, there are many staunch admirers o...

SMALL SCREWS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888
SMALL SCREWS. The smallest screws in the world are made in an American watch Factory. They are cut from steel wire by a ma chine, but as the chips fall down from the knife jt looks as if the operative was simply cutting up the wire for fun. The fourth jewel-wheel screw is the next thitag to being invisible, and to the naked eyes it lodks like dust. With a glass, however, it is seen to be a small screw, with 260 threads to the inch, and with a very fine glass the threads may be seen very clearly. These little screws are 4-1000 of an inch in diameter, and the heads are double the size. It is esti mated that an ordinary ladies' thimble would hold 100,000 of these tiny little screws. About 1,000,000 of them are made a month, but no attempt is ever made to count them. In determinig the the n timber; 100 of them are placed on a very delicate balance, and die number of »the Midle ^ftbunti^ dfetermined by the weight of these.1-: All *)f 'the small parts of the watch fare counted in this way...

i\TCIIMOND LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY Tijit .K-up) weekly meeting took place in the Vresfcytcripn Schoolroom on Tuesday evening, jhth inst, Mr A. M. Woodhillin the chair. The ruminations of two candidates for member sY:~ Acrt; received. r.nii' iers for the evening was a debate on V.:c ties! mode of supplying Richmond with a vv uci supply. Mr. T Cobcroft opened the de bate i Ir. understood that the Government would lend ooo.gao for supplying all suburbs and aw-.try tjw.1-, with a water supply, but he would be in favour of selling part of Ham Common to pay for it He would favour, if unsuccessful in getting the Common for sale, the borrowing of the money, which he was sure would be repaid at a very short date after completion. He mentioned the Prospect Reservoir and the Hawkesbury River, as places from which a supply could be ob tained. His scheme would be to force the water, from under Mr. G. M. Pitt's property, into a reservoir erected on Wisbey's Hill, to lay 6 inch pipes over th...
