ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888
ACCIDENTS. On Monday, a very serious accident happened to Mr. Robert liennett, at a spot about three miles from Wilberforce. He was driving in a spring cart, in company with his brother, Mr. John Bennett, when the horse bolted oft" into the bush. They managed to pull the animal up, but whilst going along the road again he played up, and made things so lively that Mr. K. Hennett jumped out of the vehicle. He fell, his left leg bent under him, and broke at the .inkle, splitting up the leg. He was taken to the Wimls >r Hospital, where he is steadily mending. On Tuesday, whilst Mr. S. Mason was driving into town, and when nearing the Fitzroy Bridge, his horse bolted. Mr. Mason, in his endeavour to pull the refractory equine in, was dragged over the dashboard, and fell down between the buggy snafts, and in dangerous proximity to the horse's heels. He hung on to the reins, and eventually stayed the mad course of the beast. Mr. Mason, luckily, was not injured further than being the reci...

PHRENOLOGY AND PHYSIOGNOMY. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888
PHRENOLOGY AND PHYSI OGNOMY. [CONTINUED.] The following is a report of a lecture delivered by Mr. Nash, of Windsor Grammar School : - Heiw let me ask, can we note the temper of a man by his outward appearance ? We shall find this can be done by Physiognomy further on. The weeping veteran of Waterloo is firmness to the death iiself in Spain, for an order was given to hang | amy soldiers found guilty of plunder; Oliver Cromwell was likewise firm. Napoleon was firm to cruelty, for he saw his order obeyed, which obliged two of his regimen to to slay each other, that his wife might see a battle. Palmer was a noted murderer, who slowly poisoned his wife for her money. In these two last instances, strange as it may seem, benevolence was large. Napoleon was kind in private life, Palmer gave largely to charities while engaged in murder. Temper is seen and measured by the size of the angle from the eyebrow to the car, and thence to the nose and base of braim. A lad brought to a phrenologist f...

WEDNESDAY HALF HOLIDAY. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888
WEDNESDAY HALF HOLIDAY. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-I notice in your last issue that there is some one who signs himself " Gyges," who is not in favour of the Wednesday half holiday. I am of opinion that the gentleman has not studied both sides of the question, or he would not have been mad-headed enough to have had his letter inserted. Anyone with an atom of common sense ought to be able to see that a half holiday in the middle of the week would be more benificial to the employees, physically, than knocking off at 6 o'clock, and then studying or improving the mind reading. I think that if a man is in a shop all day and does a fair amount of work, he wants recrea tion that will do him good physically, not men tally ; he does not want to be (after leaving his business) studying or reading ; he has enough to do to keep his brains going all day, studying the requirements of the' "people, and how he, shall serve them best. He wants outdoor exercise, arid this he would get if we only had the l...

TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL" CHAPTER VIII-CONTINUED. Nina gave it to him, not daring to look at him; and then, feeling that one more such look must end in an explosion, she retired to a sofa by the window, and took refuge behind a friendly copy of the TIMES. ' Yes, as I said,' continued Mr. Vane, * he has a brother; but I am afraid there is a great difference between them. I have always heard the highest character given to Sir Hugh D'Eyncourt, both as regards his public and private life.' "Is the brother not like him ?' asked Leslie, in an interested tone, as if ex pectant of the sweet morsel of scandal that was coming, and as if he was pre pared to sympathize most deeply in the family troubles of the D'Eyncourts. * Like him? Oh, no! Far from it. I believe his is anything but an exem plary character. Very handsome and fascinating, I am told, which is the greater pity where the character is so de fective.' &lt; How unfortunate for the brother !' said Lesli...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair ril tell you news, inaitiereiu good to either. The Press is a mighty institution-and don't you forget it. Out in the back country the proprietor of a newspaper is invested with am importance ?in the eyes of the inhabitants far exceeding that ?enjoyed by all the kings and queens in the universe.- whilst the editor who cannot get drunk six times a day without the spree costing him a red-cent of a headache, must either be a staunch felue-ribbonite or a fooL The carrying capacity of these "care-wora writers for the press," as Kendall called them, is thoroughly tested., and when editors die after a long experience of bucolic journalism, their remains are generally stacked away in a harness cask in one corner of the samctum, op to their necks in the spirit which they loved so well in life. How many good men have gone the way of all flesh during the past few years, yet how many arrant duffers hare been left behind, to disgust the ne...
CHARLES HARPUR, POET. A WINDSOR NATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888
CHARLES HARPUR, POET. A WINDSOR NATIVE. It will no doubt be interesting to most of our readers to learn some facts-which we gleaned from the son of the poet with whom we were acquainted some years ago - concerning one who was born within the confines of their own town, and who, during the few short years of an eventful life, made a name for himself in the world of literature which should stand the test of all time. In regard to Australian writers, those who have best attained to name and fame are foi the most part not of colonial birth. Adam L. Gordon, Brunton Stephens, and Mar cus Clarke, for instance, were born and educated in other lands. Kendall was an Australian, and so was Charles Harpur, who is probably the greatest in his poetic instincts and genius that Aus tralia can yet claim as born and bred on her own soil. His nature was proud and sensitive. He needed intellectual sym pathy and companionship, but the cir cumstances of his life drove him to sell communion and self-judgm...
