WILBERFORCE ITEMS. From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

WILBERFORCE ITEMS. From a Correspondent. SIR.-With all the cry of the Protectionists I hope they practice what they preach, viz., encourage colonial ana local industry. Well, I am a freetrader, and I believe in en couraping local industry. I take the local paper, and I'll try aud give you a few items of interest for its readers. Wilberforce is an ancient village, and far famed for its natives. It has a cemetery nicelv situated close by the Church of England, and members of all creeds, and colours lie resting there, although it really belongs to the Church of England. To one who has been absent for some time, say 10 years, he finds many old identities, as well as young, have passed away, and you often find the one returned make his way to the churchyard, and have a look at the spot where someone he knew lies resting. Mr. T. Collison, of Windsor, is the most popular viaitor to Wilberforcc in a business capacity. He should be proclaimed King of this place, for the majority of those who...

Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

Riv^rsioiie. , 5 (FRQfa OUR CORRESPONDENT.) On Monday evening, as a boy named Louis Bentel was riding towards home his pony tripped and fell, throwing him heavily to the ground, the result being that he received a severe shaking, and a badly grazed face. He was at once attended on by Dr. Charlie, who dressed his wounds, and he is now progressing favourably. This was followed up on Wednesday morning by a child of Mr. George Mitchell's being kicked by a horse. The unfortunate boy was playing about where the horses were feeding, and one of them kicked at him with great violence, and knocked him some distance. When picked up he was unconscious, and remained so for some time. On examination by Dr. Hozier, it was found that he had his jaw broken, and some of his teeth knocked out, besides other nasty cuts oh the face. He is in a very low state. Petitions are being numerously signed for the purpose of urging the Government to resume a piece of ground for a public cemetery near River stone....

TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

TALES, SKETCHJESV«£, "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" lI am going to combine the two. I have hitherto had no outlet for my wide sympathies. I have found one now ; at least, I am going to make one.' Hugh looked hopelessly puzzled. He fell that his brother had some real deep meaning under his fun, but, as often hap pened, he was not able to fathom it. Leslie came to his rescue. Lifting his brilliant hazel eyes, with a sweet smile, he said, 41 puzzle you, don't I, poorriel-. low? Well, I do not particularly you to have Forster, but I really think l^e, will serve you capitally. I wouldn't force on you a man who was no use.

' Oh, you prudent, transparent fellow !' said the younger brother, bursting into a fit of laughter. 4 You are afraid to trust me, are you not ? On my honour, you need not, Hugh !' 4 Well, after that, I shall say no more,' said Hugh. 4 I will do what I can...

But, at present the wise acres who govern the Department seem to do all in their power to keep down the amount of traffic, etc., with, I presume, a view of proving an assertion made by them to a deputation from Windsor some two years ago, to the effect that Windsor and Richmond line did not pay.

SACKVILLE REACH. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

SACKVILLE REACH. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) DEBATING SOCIETY.-The Society held one of its usual socials on Friday, the 14th inst. Mr E. S. Wood (the President) occupied the chair. The main feature of the evening was a " Mock Parlia mentary Election" of three members. This caused considerablef amusement, as there were nine candidates, each of whom were expected to deliver an address on politics, and answer any questions asked by the audience. After hearing the candidates speak, the public elected (by ballot) the following as members:-Messrs. W. Musgrove and N Mitchell, for Sackville; and Mr E. Mitchell for Forest Lodge. The follow ing programme was rendered with the care and ability for which the ladies and gentlemen are the greatefS^jEavourite with a Sackville audience, although i?p^h pieces were carefully rendered. Recitations were given by Messrs. C. J. Tucker man, W. Musgrove, N. Mitchell, and S. Tuclter man Mr? A-. D. Wright, unfortunately, found that he and another member \had p...

SKATING CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

SKATING CARNIVAL. Mr. Hesford's Skating Carnival on Monday evening was a decided success. The attendance was very good, the weather delightful for such exercise, and the costumes selected by those in attendance were pleasing in the extreme. The hall of the School of Arts was made to assume a brighter aspect than usual by the introduction of a large collection of Chinese lanterns, which were suspended from the ceiling, and made quits . pretty show. This building, by the way, requires painting and decorating very badly; for we are quite sure that it would be difficult to find a more dilapidated and more wretched public hall in any town in the colony. This is saying a good deal, but not one whit too much. To return to the Carnival, however. Amongst the most con spicuous characters assumed were the following : -" Coming Thro' the Rye," Miss E. Tebbutt, who looked well indeed ; Miss M. Wood was charmingly. attired itf ^.costuoi&of the time of ?^j&ui^ T\i^kalea thTflufch s...

A HOAX. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

A HOAX, -i A . .- ,L ' ' Jt On Monday afternoon, news was brought'to the police station by Mr. Mackenzie, employed at Mr. W. Moses' bakery, to the effect that a woman had drowned herself in South Cfefek, between Mr. Gosper's paddock and Mr. W.t. Dean's property. A search party was immediately organised, and the police procured a boat to go in quest of, the supposed " suicide." After searching for some time, it was asceitained, accidentally, that the whole affair was a hoax, although the gentleman who gave the information acted with the bestof intentions. It appears that a party of local ladies and gentlemen were picnicking on the bank of the Creek, and about the hour mentioned by Mr. Mackenzie, a boat arrived at the spot to take one of the party, a lady, homewards. She ran down the bank and embarked, and when Mr. Mackenzie arrived at the scene, the craft was hidden from his view. He did not come across the remainder of the party, and the affair having a rather strange aspect certain...

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 w'hat is asked, he or she is rich enough already; but as an inducement, we offer a prize of lialf-a-guinea to the person who succeeds in furnishing the name of the respective selection from which the undermentioned lines are taken within one tnonth from the date of publication of this issue.

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 September 1888

WHAT WE HEAE. That the people of Richmond will not stand the new arrangements made by the railway depart ment with regard to taking away Mr. Lackey's assistant. That if the department took more care in run ning the other branches of the service on the Wind sor and Richmond line they would be unable to say it did not pay. That seven years ago a quantity of nine inch water pipes, about £400 worth, were sent to Mul grave for the purpose of supplying the engine with water at the platform That these pipes are at present scattered about the station premises, and in some cases are covered over with rubbish, and have become nests for snakes etc. That usual dreams with regard to the Queen winning the Handicap are now being related.

TOPICS OF THE DAY.' - Listen tcf me, and if von speak me fair I'll tell you news, indiflerent good to either. IT happened in a police court not far from Rich mond, after the expiration of the time for register ing dogs, not many years back. One of the guar dians of the peace, whose duty it was to hunt up the owners of unregistered canines in his district, had just descended from the witness-box after having given evidence to the effect that.-from the usual information received, he had found an un registered dog upon the premises of the defendant, who, by-the-bye, was a colonial virago of the worst species. His Worship politely enquired what defence was offered, when defendant, talcing from a basket in her hand the smallest dog I ever saw-about the size of a tea-cup-she stepped over to the Bench and, throwing the poor little brute down before His Worship, enquired if the " adjective traps expected her to pay for a hanimal like that.* It is needless to say that the stinted growth .of ...
