Test For Readers. A PRIZE OFFERED. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888

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. Communications to be addressed to "THE EDITOR, GAZETTE," with name and address of sender attached.

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888

WHAT WE HE AH. That Charlie Wood is to win the boat race on to-day. He'll have to send the outrigger along. That the fracture sustained by Mr. Bennett on Monday is a very serious one, and much sympathy is expressed for him. j "What's the use of wasting time," said Mr. Richardson to Mr. Walker, during the hearing of a case on Wednesday. " Oh, that's all very well, -you want a verdict," was the reply. Weather hot, money scarce, business dull, store keepers growling, farmers looking out for rain. That Mr. Harry Richardson, the well-known solicitor, is an ardent believer in Land Nationali zation. That the opening of the Quarter Sessions was delayed until ji on Tuesday through the non arrival of J udge Mcl'arlane. That a grand concert will be given in the School of Arts on October 24, in aid of improve ments to St. Joseph's Convent, Windsor. That " papers come and papers go, but we go on for ever." Yes, that's the worst of it-always babbling, always murmuring. That Windsor has had quite ...

OUR INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888

OUR INDUSTRIES. Thinking that a few lines with reference to the industries of the town would be read with interest by our constituents, we, on Monday last, com menced operations by visiting the various tan neries in Windsor, and below we give an outline of the business transacted at each establishment. The first visited was Mr. K. Cobcroft's, at Newtown, which we were shown over by the courteous proprietor, who has effected many valuable improvements since he came into possession. The main building is of two stories. The stuffing room is situated on the ground floor, and the pits (23 in number) are situated close by. In this room there is a splitting machine and a grinder with which to sharpen the knife, whilst on the other side of the yard is the bark-cutting machine. A large dam has been sunk within the enclosure, but through the dry weather it now contains little water. Upstairs are the finishing and packing rooms, where all descrip tions of leather are on view. With a full compl...

HE ATE SAUSAGES. (WE HATE THEM.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 October 1888

HE ATE SAUSAGES. (WE HATE THEM.) A rather strange case came before the Water Police Court one day last week, when Mr. Inspector Seymour charged Andrew Strachan, a butcher of Cumber land-street, with having in his possession a dead horse unfit for human food. The evidence went to show that the inspector and two of his satellites visited the yard of the defendant's shop, and saw the car case of a horse, skinned, cleaned, and cut into quarters, in a similar manner to that adopted in the treatment of beef and mutton. Further search revealed the head, hide, and hoofs of a horse, which had been only recently killed. The de fendant denied that the flesh had been re tained for sale as human food, and stated first that it was a cow, but afterwards ad mitted that it was a horse which was about to be sold for boiling-down pur poses, whilst the idea of using it for pork sausages was indignantly repudiated. It is not wholesome to speculate upon the number of defunct steeds that we may have consu...

AN APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888

AN APPEAL. Mr. \V. H. Suttor, of Bathurst, writes: I see by the reports in the papers that the "Picturesque Atlas" Company are suiing persons in the cor.rt who refuse to take the work as subscribed for. A man came to me to-day, and 1 know having to take the whole work will be beyond his means. His story is that he was under the impression he was subscribing to something that would not cost him more than 5s. He tells mc that he was lold at the time that he need not take the work when produced unless he liked. He found out in the meantime that he had rendered himself liable to a much greater expenditure. I am further informed by him that some of his poor neighbours are even in worse plight than himself-that if they are compelled to pay it will com* pletely cripple their resources. The book agent is one of " the miseries of human life" in the present day. I had no idea that the business was pressed among these poor fellows so keenly as it is. I was one of those who for a time resisted ...

ARTIFICIAL VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888

ARTIFICIAL VALUES. I The Melbourne ARGUS states, with ; that noble disregard of sense which is its j strongest characteristic, that " no arti i fical value can long be given to the soil." : Probably the ARGUS really does not know I how much the wide term artificial value covers, and is utterly unaware of the attenuated nature of its arguments. The ground of which Melbourne is built has a value which is almost purely artificial : it began to acquire that value when Melbourne first began to be built, and it 'will riot altogether lose it until the last two bricks of Melbourne fall apart from each other. The artificial value of Melbourne land is caused solely by the artificial fact that Melbourne is on the top of it; if Mel bourne were removed, the land would be as solid and-regarded merely as an ag glomeration of dirt and rocks and vege table mould-as precious as ever, but yet its fictitious value would be entirely gone. The difference between the natural and the artificial value of la...
