POETRY. HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 3 November 1888
POETBY. HOME. A man can build a mansion, And furnish it throughout; A man can build a palace, With lofty walls and stout; A man can build a temple, With high and spacious dome; But no man in the world can build That precious thing called Home. So 'tis a happy faculty Of women far and wide To turn a cot or palace Into soroeting else beside, Where brothers, sons, and husbands tired With willing footsteps come, A place of rest, where love abounds, A perfect kingdom, Home.

PETER KEMP'S DEFEAT. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 3 November 1888
PETER KEMP'S DEFEAT. (TO TH1-; ICOITOR. Sik,-How have the mighty fallen! Poor Kemp, to whom almost every aquatic sportsman in the colony pinned their faith when the cfcam" pionship was threatened by the Canadian, 'has followed in the wake of Trickett, Rush, and 'the rest of our erstwhile champions, after but a brief reign. To be champion oarsman of the world raises, according to colonial sporting ideas, the proud possessor of that title to the highest pinnacle that can be attained by brawny colonials, and it naturally is the case when it comes " that the fall from that eminence must be proportion ate." Now that l'eter Kemp is a defeated man, most of his admirers, who, while he was at the zenith of his fame, went almost to the extent of worship ping him, will just as zealously desert him. Such has been the case in regard to all our champion athletes in the past, and will doubtless be the case when tlie end of Searle's aquatic 'career arrives, and even to the end of the chapter. It is...

WINDSOR HALF-HOLIDAY. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 3 November 1888
WINDSOR HALF-HOLIDAY. [TO THE EDITOR.] SIR,-In your last issue I noticed a reply to my letter of the 29th September, in which " Gyges " terms me an unpronounceable individual. "Gyges" cannot be very well versed, or he could find a pronunciation for my name ; it may not be in the English language, but he who cannot pronounce the word straightforwardly from the spelling, must be a baby-boy whose practical experience has not yet reached farther than his mother's apron-string. If 11 Gyges" looks over his own letter, he will find that he DID mention Pad ley Bros., also 6 o'clock closing, which he contradicts. It is all very well for him now, to say that his opinion is in favour of the good old fashioned hours of from 6 to 6. I am of opinion that "Gyges" cannot be the one hundred giant-power mon capable of overthrowing kings and kingdoms, from whence lie takes his name ; at any rate if h&lt;i be a hundred giant-headed man, I, as an ordinary human being, am prepared, through the pr...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 3 November 1888
LOCAL GOVERNMENT BILL. The Premier has notified that at the earliest opportunity the long-promised, long-delayed Local Goverment Bill will be submitted to Parliment. If he intends that a measure ofsiich far-reaching im portance shall be dealt with in the course of the brief session pending, it is not too much to say that it will be botched. No measure in recent years involves so much, or possesses such a wide circle of in fluence. It is undoubtedly the most im portant bill that the Goverment will sub mit, and demands a carefulness and con scientiousness in its examination which can hardly be given in the limited time which will remain after the urgent matter of the finances has been satisfactorily dealt with. Possibly the intention of the Goverment is to lay the bill on the table and then pass on to other work, leaving the House and the country to make them selves thoroughly acquainted with its provisions. It would be an act of un pardonable folly to rush so important a measure thou...
