THE CRAWFORD-HUNTER PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
THE CRAWFORD-HUNTER PARTY. The attendance at the School of Arts on Wednesday evening was not nearly so large as it should have been, considering the excellence of the entertainment provided by the Crawford - Hunter party. From first to last each item was received with unbounded applause, and the pro gramme was of a most interesting and varied character. It opened with a really well-executed pianoforte solo by Master W. Crawford. Miss E. Hunter followed with that beautiful song, " Mac gregor's Gathering," and was the recipient of rapturous plaudits, not only for this particular item, bnt for each one which she contributed during the evening. Amongst the finest and best rendered of Miss Hunter's contributions were "The Cameron Men," which elicited a well deserved encore, the talented vocalist acknow ledging the compliment by singing "The Two Spoons;" and " Caller Ou " (in character). In conjunction with Mr. Crawford, Miss Hunter sang a sparidingly humorous duet, and took part in the d...

EMBLEMS. A streamlet: is ti bright and beauteous creature In some wide desert, where it keeps apart Of each wayiarer's heart : The Star of Evening is a gracious feature, Instinct as 'twere with all the love that eyes Havi looked through at the skies. And hence one emblems in its beauteous being The memory of a Joy that in my heart Flowed gratefully apart; The other, to my spiritual seeing, The perpetuity of Love's white grace Yet in some heavenly place.

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
LOCAL AND GENERAL. TREAT TO ASYLUM INMATES.-On Wednesday last, Mr. HUGH Taylor, M.P. for Parramatta, visited Windsor for the purpose of arranging matters in connection with the forthcoming treat, to be accorded to the inmates of the Hawkesbury Benevolent Asylum. Mr. Taylor was met by the Hon. W. Walker, M.L.C., Messrs S. T. Greenwell (sec.,) Linsley, Holland and Galloway. Mr. Greenwell produced a letter from Dr. Hozier, which stated that as there were now two very critical cises in the Hospital, it would be injudicious at present to get up anything which would create excitement in the institution. In consequence of this letter the Committee, with Mr. Taylor, agreed that the treat should be pos- poned until all other similar demonstrations were held. It is therefore probable that the treat at Windsor Asylum, will be held in-three weeks if not it must lapse altogether. It would be a pity to allow it to do so, and we see no reason why the inmates of the institution, who have been look-...

PRINTERS' ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
PRINTERS' ERRORS. (CONTRIBUTED BY F.) Some people are ever ready to set them selves to work to discover errors in a news paper, and having l'ound out a " literal," or a mistake which has missed the " reader's" eye, they crow over the printer, as tJtough he, of all the human family, should be in fallible. Now, to show the difficulty, almost amounting to impossibility, of turning out a paper, or, in fact, any printed work of more than ordinary proportions, without an error, it may be stated that about 100 years ago the Professors of Edinburgh University attempted to publish a work which should be be a perfect specimen of typographical accuracy. Six experienced proof-readers were engaged, who devoted hours to the reading of each page, and after it was thought perfect it was posted up in the hall of the University with a notification that a reward of £50 would be paid to any person who would discover an error. Each page was suffered to remain two weeks hi this position before the work w...
