An Amusing Lawsuit. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 October 1886
An Amusing Lawsuit. An amusing trial (telegraphs the Paris correspondent of the Daily Telegraph) which recalls the famous one of Madame Rachel in London, has just been decided here by the Sixth Chamber of the Civil Tribunal. The plaintiff was no less a person than that of M. Duval, the man ager of the well-known Bouillons Duval, and the defendant was a widow named Madame Lafitte, who advertised nostrums to make the hair grow. Undeterred by the fact that the widow Lafitte wore a wig — a proceeding which she excused on the ground that she had no time to use remedial unguents on herself — M. Duval boldly entrusted himself to her treatment. He attended Madame Lafitte's place 154 times. He was subjected to innumer able frictions with all kinds of compounds; but he looked in vain for the few sprouts of hair which, according to the widow's programme, should appear after two months' treatment. Tired out at last, M. Duval withdrew in disgust from the contest with irremediable baldness. What ...

The attention of Running Two-year-olds. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 October 1886
The Quentlon of Running Two-year«olds. A GENKRAti meeting of the Australian ! Jockey Club was held at Tattetsall'a Clubrooms, on Thursday afternoon, to insider the following motion, of which Mr. Henry Austin had givon 'notice : — That from and after the first day of October, 1889, no 'two-year-old' race fchall be run for in New South Wales |frior to the first 'two-year-old, event included in the Australian J.ockey Club's Spring programme.' There was a numerous attendance of members. Mr. Austin, in moving the resolution, conten ded that the main object of racing was to encourage the breeding of high-class horses, with undeniable podigree, courage, good temper, and substance, horses that could gallop fast, stay and carry weight, and that the possession of those qualities in combination was rendered more than improbable by the early racing of two year-olds. , [ He argued that racing and stud records showed that the horses which had done the least amount of two year-old racing ,had been...

A Chinese Gambling Saloon. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 October 1886
A Chinese fiambllng (Saloon. The Parramatta police made a sucessful raid on a Chinese gambling den, situated in Phillip-street, Parramatta, on Saturday night. The place was a rendezvous for Chinamen from all parts of the district, and numbers of them usually assembled there on Saturday nights, and carried on their gambling operations all night and throughout Sunday. Europeans were also known .to visit the place, but none were found in it on Saturday night, probably on account of the early hour at which the descent was made.. The house had been under police surveillance for sometime; but John was fonnd more than a match for the officers of the law, until the services of recent addition to the force were called into requisition. His disguise was so perfect that John was thrown off his guard, and the stranger Was permitted to participate in the games, and get an insight into the transactions carried on in the house. Having completed all their arrangements, the police decided to swoop d...
Wonders of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 October 1886
Wonders of the gea. The sea occupies three-fifths of the sur face of the earth. At the depth of about 3500 feet waves are not felt. The tem perature is the same, varying only a| trifle from the ice of the pole to the 'burning sun of the equator. A mile 'down the, water has a pressure of over a ton to the square inch. If a box 6 feet deep were filled with sea-water and allowed ., to evaporate under the sun, there would be 2 inches of salt left on the bottom. . Taking the average depth of the ocean to be three miles, there would be a layer of pure salt 230 feet thick on the bed of the Atlantic. The water is colder at the bottom than at the surface, in the many bays on the coast of Norway :tbe water often freezes at the bottom before it does above. Waves are veryt deceptive. To look at them in a storm one would think the water trav elled. The water stays in the same place, ?but the motion -goes on. Sometimes in storms these waves are '40 feet high, and travel 50 miles an hour — more th...

Fifteen members of the Salvation Army were charged at Napier with a breach of the anti-procession by-laws, and were each fined 5s. and costs, or 48 hours' i imprisonment In the course of the case one defendant said, ' Devils make laws and magistrates fire the balls,' He was ordered down for contempt, but before the rising o£ the court he | apologised and was let off. Several of | the defendants elected to take it out in ! gaol. On the Conrt rising, the Salvationists, in order to show their contempt of the magistrate's decision, marchfd round the court, and knelt down in the street.
Reasons for Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 October 1886
Reasons for Advertising. Mb. SpuRgeon, in lecturing some time ago, said, 'Advertise, for the life of business is printer's ink. An advertise ment drops the same information into thousands of minds at the same time. One point of good advertising is to ad dress the same people over and over again. An advertisement presente 1 once is soon forgotten, so thrown away, while one presented several times makes an impres sion, and by that means attains the de sired object.' The path to success in business is the path of common sense. Push hard, and don't be afraid to venture your money to increase it. Remember that nothing produces nothing ; and you may turn your nothing over a long time before it will grow into a five-pound note, and you might just as well blow against a hurri cane, try to run a steam engine without coals, or drive a water-mill without water, as to hope to succeed in business without advertising. The proprietor of an extensive estab lishment in London, in sending his order f...

GAUDAUR'S PERFORMANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 October 1886
GAUDAUR'S PERFORMANCES. Somo littlo surprise was expressed when tho Boa.ch-cum-Gaudaur match was made, on account of Gaudaur's comparatively unknown career. He had won several races in America, but thoy mostly counted as oxhibition affairs, ono of the low excep tions boing his raco with Edward Trickett, Wallace Ross, G. H. Hosineiy and four othors at Ottawa, Canada, in July, 1881. Ou this occasion Ross won a docisivo vic tory, Gaudaur coming in second,- and Hosmer third, Trickett only obtaining sixth place. Lately, howover, Gaudaur appears to have been working to tho front, and won his raco with Albert Hosmer, at Lake Winnipeg, on July 1, covering tho three miles with two turns in 19 minutes 51 l-oth seconds, said to to tho fastest timo on record by three soconds. Naturally, great curiosity was evinced as to Gaudaur's powur to make a race with tho Champion, and concerning the reasons of his having been chosen to meet Beach. The principal cause would appear iu tho fact of his having ...
