RICHMOND LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

RICHMOND LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY. THE members of the above society assembled in the Presbyterian School-room on Tuesday even ing 25th inst, A. M. Woodhill in the chair, Busi ness : " Impromptu Speaking." Each member was called upon to write a subject on a slip of paper, these slips were then gathered in a hat, and each member, as his number was called, drew a slip from the bat, the subject on which he had to speak about. As the gem of the evening, we must compliment the Rev. Mr. Kinghorn, who gave us a very eloquent speech on " The Instinct of Animals." Mr. A. Klein treated the subject " The Hawkesbury River" rather geographically ; he considered pumpkins to be the principal pro duct. Mr. II. J. Klein who had to handle " No thing" thought there was nothing like it. He told us a " nanny goat" of a man who shot at nothing and missed it, bat hit a man who was in his garden. Mr. C. Farlow on " Store-keeping" thought it an easy occupation to follow, but some others present thought ...

CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

CHAPTER VIII. Dan vers Vane was more charmed than ever with his gentlemanly-looking as sistant, when they met for the first time next morning at breakfast. Leslie was slightly apprehensive as to Nina's powers of acting, of which he had never had an opportunity of judging ; but he was soon lost in admiration of her per fect self-command. She met him with just the right degree of friendliness, but without a change of face ; a slight smile of welcome, such as she would have given to any acquaint ance ; and carried on a conversation on the topics of the day with an easy free dom and simulated ignorance of his opinions and tastes such as was far be yond his expectations. Was Mr. Leslie fond of music ? and did he play ? She hoped he would not hesitate to avail himself of the piano-it was a very fine one ; and, of course, he sang tenor ; and so she carried on a pleas ant chatty conversation without any sign of a simulated manner. When she retired, leaving the two gentlemen in the room, she...

WEDNESDAY HALF HOLIDAY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

WEDNESDAY HALF HOLIDAY. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I notice that you advocate a Wednesday half-holiday, on the plea, I presume, that it is better to have that than none at all. Just so, but why not go in for the legitimate thing at once ? The proper place for a married man is not to be stuck in a shop until 8 or 9, or perhaps 10 o'clock, at night, from year's end to year's end, but to be at home with his wife and children ; and for young unmarried men to be recreating and improving themselves either by reading or some innocent diversion-and'a half-holiday in the middle of the week does not give them this opportunity. It is simply half a day lost to both employer and em ployee, and a source of annoyance and incon venience to the general public. There is nothing, in my humble opinion, beats the good, old-fashioned working hours of from 6 to 6, with two hours for meals, and I don't care whether you apply it to shops or factories, it is the most rational time in which to labour. As for the eig...

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

WHAT WE HEAH. That German Charlie was in town on Tuesday. That the carriages on the Richmond line are to be fumigated, owing to the number of invalids j who travel in them to Riverstone. I That over 150 persons got out at Riverstone on j Tuesday to visit German Charlie, who was in ."Windsor, so they had their journey for naught. That tickets for admission o lly to Charlie's consulting room were sold last week as high as j 15s each. That the rowing boom is at its height again. Two matches made this week. That a better lamp than that provided is re quired to warn travellers of the presence of a long line of broken metal on the Wilberforce-road. That a public meeting to advocate the clearing ( of South Creek will be held shoitly. j That business is looking up somewhat since the i late rains.

CORRESPONDENCE. THAT HOAX. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. THAT HOAX. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-In your report of the supposed suicide, in last week's issue, I find you have got things somewhat mixed, with reference to myself. As far as I am con corned, the facts are these-I did not see the person run towards the water, as stated ; in fact, I never saw the person at all. On seeing a number of well known townsmen running towards the Creek through Dean's Paddock, and sus pecting something was the matter, I saddled my horse and rode to the Creek, through Gosper's Paddock. On arriving there, 1 was informed by some of those present that a female had drownc.l her self, and I immediately informed the police of the matter. As this matter has been so much talked about, ami as you have deemed it your duty to give nie credit for being the author of the whole affair, I hope you will lavour me by inserting this short epistle by way of explanation. Yours, &c., ARTHUR MACKENZIE. 24/9/88. [Mr. Mackenzie certainly labours under a mistake...

SCISSORS AND PASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

SCISSORS AND PASTE. Ami there in the privacy of his sanctum the coloivl sat. and edited liis paper with predatory Jiieai s and a dishonest paste pot.-Max Adeler. Lewis Lewis danced a jig on the occasion of the celebration of his 105th birthd ty ai Sandhurst (Vic.) last week. He can shake a Lewis leg yet. Walt Whitman, the poet, is dying of paralysis. Tlie premises occupied by the Century Club in Hunter-street, Sydney, were once tenanted by Daniel Henry Deniehy. A veteran Sydney actor had in his possession until recently a top turned for him by Sir llenry l'arkes. The moral of this reminiscence, if it lias one, is that the Premier commenced his career at the top. The present holder of the Dean Paul baronetcy is town-clerk in a small N.Z. mining district. Daniel Henry Deniehy was only 35 when he died at Balburst in 1865. Charles Harpur, the poet, was born in Windsor in 1817. His father, Joseph Harpur, was master of the Government school here. Buchanan replied to Sir Henry Parkes at St...

RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 September 1888

RIFLE SHOOTING. A return rifle match between the Ashfield and Windsor teams took place on Saturday last on the Paddington Range. The conditions were nine men a side and seven shots at 500 and 600 yards. Ashfield won the match by 21 points. The follow ing are the total scores :-Ashfield : Private Ahem, 58 ; L.C. Bennett, 52 ; Corporal Cresy, 49 ; Private Menzies, 49 , Private Holt. 48 ; Sergeant Rigby, 48, Private Bennett, 45 ; Private Hall, 43 ; Private Wassell, 41 ; total, 434. Windsor : Cor poral Bell, 52 ; Lieutenant Anderson, 51 ; Private H. Cupitt, 50 ; Private Bragg 47; Private F. Cupitt, 47 ; Private Butler, 45 , Lieutenant Pye, 43 ; Private Toomey, 41 ; Sergeant Mellish, 37 ; total, 413. The lack of success of the local team in this match is due to nothing else but want of practice. If the marksmen were to do a little more towards making themselves proficient, they would, un doubtedly, be able to hold their own witK the best teams in the colony. The result of their last two ...
