TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "LOVE CONQUERS ALL." "CHATTER IX.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
TALES, SKETCHES, &c. ?"LOVE CONQUERS ALL" "CHATTER IX.-Continued. An almost death-like silence now en sued. The storm in Vane's mind was raging terribly, and he was almost beside him self between two conflicting opinions. To yield, was to admit himself beaten ; not to yield, was to lose all the work of months and years, and with it fame and wealth ! His eyes avoided the steady gaze of Leslie's which followed him. As he glanced at the silent tempter on the table, his hands clenched and un 'denched, iiis hps were livid. If he had dared, he would have struck «down the erect figure before him ; but .even in his terrific anger he remembered that the secret of the model was not yet &lt;his. But gradually he raised his eyes to Leslie's face, and said, ' So you and the girl have planned this nice business to .deceive me! She has, at any rate, per mitted it. And pray, if I accede to your insolent request, what guarantee have I that you will keep your word ?' 4 What guarantee ...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
TOPICS OF THE DAY.' --- I Listen to m&, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, inaifterent good to either. tt is becoming quite a common thing for politicians and members of our Assembly to harp upon the fact that one man who was a protectionist twenty five years ago is a Freetrader to-day, or that the protectionist of to-day was a freetrader twenty years before. Surely there is nothing particularly remarkable in a person changing his political views, provided he does not act upon the weathercock pjinciple altogether. A man of the world who does not change in the course of a quarter of a century, when everything around him-social, political, and otherwise-is undergoing a com plete metamorphosis, must be altogether destitute of opinions and possessed of a poverty of mind which prohibits him from being susceptible to reason or argument. Almost every day we hear our most prominent politicians charged with this so-called species of inconsistency by their op ponents, who ap...
LITERARY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
LITERARY NOTES. Early in '57, England lost one of her worthiest sons-Douglas Jerrold. A small, delicately-formed, bent man, with long grey hair combed back l'rom his forehead, with grey eyes deep set under penthouf-e brows, and a way, just as the inspiration seized lain, of dangling a double eye-glass which hung round his neck by a broad b!ack rib bon. A kindly man, for all liis bitter tongue, taking care that justice was done, and soft and easy with women and children. Jules Jamil's handwriting was wry bad, a nightmare for the printer; so illegible that only two compositors out of the wlio.e stall' of the DEBATS were able to translate it. One day he wrote a letter to a friend, who, after much trouble, deciphered two 01 three words, which made him think his correspondent must be Janin. He imme diately started for Passy. " All, lwre you ar," cried Janin, on seeing him ; " you have read my letter ?' "Not at all," said the friend ; " I have received it, and I've brought it here for you...

POETRY. ?" LIVIi IT DOWN." I've lived iHrt.il my head is gray.. And bent my manly form ; Thro' many a fray I've fought 1115' way, And breasted many a storm ; I've been abused behind my back, Likewise before; the town ; I ln'ver answered slander's [jack : Not I - I lived it down. If e'er in business you embark 'J in-keWle, toys, or tea - And people say your " ways are dark," Like thai 'ere false Chinee.; That all your warts are Hrunimagem, Your bills not worth a "-brown" Don't waste your breath to answer "em ; Cheat cm, and " live it down."

A POLITCAL WEATHERCOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
A POLITCAL WEATHERCOCK. Mr O'Sullivan has opened his mouth once more, with the usual result-the eructation of a considerable amount of wind. We have already had about three or four distinct and inconsistent defini tions of his policy with regard to the land tax. When he first spread out his hands and revealed the fathomless profundities of his mind to his colleagues he supported the principle of taxing land values because it " was part and parcel of the coming policy of land nationalisation." Next he opposed the principle because something else was not tacked to it. He has turned his coat once more, and his roaring democracy subsides into a miser able whine that he will support, or per haps, when he becomes a minister, will introduce, a bill to tax not all land, as an honest man would, but only the estates exceeding 10,000 acres in area. He would grind down the men in the scorched west, but allow the fifty times more dangerous monopolist of the city alto gether to escape. Mr. O'Sull...
BREATHING THROUGH THE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
BREATHING THROUGH THE MOUTH, Some of lis who have attained to the -dignity of middle age may remember the time when George Catlin, the famous American traveller, startled nervous people by solemnly warning them of the dangers of opening their mouths. The memory of the eccentric little book, with its odd pictorial devices, entitled1 The Breath of Life,' wherein these views were propounded, is just now revived by Dr. Abbotts in a new monthly magazine de voted to the subject of health. Dr. Abbotts was a personal friend of Catlin, and, moreover, assisted him in writing the book referred to. Catlin it was who said:' If I were to endeavour to bequeath to posterity the most important motto which the human language can convey it would be in three words: ' Shut your mouth.' Since then this advice has be come one of the common sayings of popular physiology. Catlin spent a great part of his life among the North American Indians, sojourned with them, practiced their customs and mode of life, un...

THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Re your strictures upon our School of Arts-which, by the bye, are not one jot too severe, I send you the following except from a northern paper, as it fits our case exactly. Yours, &c.f COMMITTEE MAN. " It may be fairly estimated that there is a population of 5000 who are living within a reasonable distance of the School of Arts. Of this number only about 4 per cent, avail themselves of the institution. Various causes are to blame for this com parative paucity of membership, but there are probably two prominent ones which affect the number of subscribers, and these two are the situation and the management. If the Sydney School of Arts were situated on the Circular Quay instead of in Pitt-street, it would be only a similar state of matters to that existing in Grafton, for few persons are likely to tramp a mile or more after dark to enjoy the advantages of the reading room. When the present Institute was founded, everybody who was anybod...

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1888, ""Let the journalist defend the doctrines of the party which he approves; let him criticise and> condemn the party which he does not approve: reserving always his right to applaud his opponents or censure his friends, as the truth may require-and he will be Independent enough for a Free Country.-GARFIELD. THE WATER SCHEME. AT last Windsor appears to be oil the eve of obtaining the great boon for which it has languished these many long years, and it is quite within the bounds of possibility that before the end of 1889 is at hand, every householder in the town will have a plenti ful supply of AQUA PURA laid on to bis domi cile. The Council must be congratulated on having adopted a scheme which is of a most complete and elaborate character, and' one in the preparation of which our worthy Mayor and his able Civil Engineer, Mr. J.

A NAVIGABLE RIVER AND CREEK. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
A NAVIGABLE RIVER AND CREEK. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir, il gives me much pleasure to find you ?advocating so warmly through navigation to Windsor, via South Creek. There have been many murmurs lately about something being done to re-open the subject, started in the Odd Fellows' Hall some three years ago, but beyond such expressions as " We shall make a move directly " and " We intend doing the thing properly," ! nothing has been done, until this last week, when a paper was taken round the town for signature, asking the Mayor to convene a public meeting, for the purpose or talcing some steps towards gutting the Governm'aflt to make f'he river navigable to old Windsor. While giving the gentleman in charge of the requision credit for best of motives, I may ask why did not he, as one of the old com mittee appointed for the purpose, consult his fellow-committeemen as to the best course to pursue ? Ife is just as much pledged to the South Creek scheme as his colleagues-though, to do him justic...

THE CONVENT CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 27 October 1888
THE CONVENT CONCERT. ON Wednesday evening the hail of the School of Arts was crowded to excess, the attraction being theconcert arranged in connection with St. Joseph's Convent, Windsor. A little of the " rough" had been taken ofl' the hall, and a slight attempt had been made to decorate it with bushes, tlie result being, that its appearance was considerably im proved. The programme presented was much too long, consisting as it did, of 32 items, not includ ing encores, and it was considerably after rr o'clock when the entertainment was brought to a close. The concert opened with a well-executed pianoforte solo, " Uohemian Girl," by Mrs. Long, this being followed by a chorus (" When the soft sun beams") of more than ordinary merit, by five convent boarders. In all that they es sayed, these little ladies did remarkably well, and the thorough knowledge they possessed of their parts demonstrated the fact that their tutors had expended much care and trouble in bringing them to such a hig...
