WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 17 November 1888

WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. v? (to THE EDITOR.) i"r ?' SIR,-" In the name of the Prophet Figs ! used to say that veteran old politican, Dr. Lang, when he was particularly amused at some of the antics of his fellow members in Parliament. And I, Sir. may well ask, in the name of the prophet, who is " Progressive Committee-man ?" There was a committee meeting held on Monday night, and though earnestly enquired after, the progressive one didn't turn up-which, to be true to his name, one would have thought he shoud have done, seeing that there had been no committee meeting held for three months. The members present on Monday night, were curious to know what manner and make of man was their progressive associate; and where most anxious to hear him expound upon his notions of progress and School of Arts reform. Alas! the five (only five after a lapse of three months!) were sadly disappointed, inasmuch as there was plenty of matter for a progressive spirit to go to work upon. However the five d...

PLEASANT SOCIAL. ON Thursday evening last, the Windsor Social Club had a very nice re-union, in the Windsor School of Arts, when the attendance numbered seventy. The hall had been tastefully decorated, and a most pleasant evening was spent by those who were present. The secretaries worked with great zest to make the affair a success, and they (Messrs J. Dickson, and A. Wall) may be con gratulated on the satisfactory result of their labours. Mr. F. Chapman, late of Windsor, made a very efficient M.C., and the music, supplied by the Messrs Claughton was all that could be desired. A good and well-arranged programme was got through by an early hour on Friday morning, when ladies and gentlemen departed homewards. Mr. J. O'Brien, supplied a supper which would have done credit to any caterer, and the delicacies provided were thoroughly enjoyed. In fact, Mr. O'Brien made such a hit on this occasion that the resources of his establishment will be thoroughly tested when the dancing season com...

DESTRUCTIVE BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 17 November 1888

JDESTRUCTIVE BUSH FIRES. ON Monday several large bush fires started in various parts of the district, and one which origin ated on the other side of Newtown, had a very dangerous appearance for a time. It is supposed that the fire was caused by two lads who threw a lighted match in amongst the brushwood. The flames soon spread along the tree scrub, and but for the fact that the wind changed, that portion of Newtown in the vicinity of Mr. R. W. Cobcrofts tannery, would have had a very narrow escape. A Dirge number jof townspeople went out to the scene, and many, including Mr. G. Dickson, took water-carts with them. They worked very hard to extinguish the fire, or at any rate to divert its course, and eventually it got across into Gosper's groves where it burned itself out. But for the efforts of those who gave assistance -at one time they numbered close upon 200-there is no know ing what destruction would have been caused. The residence and outhouses of Mr. Adolphus ' Tucker man had ...

DICKEN'S PRIVATE LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 17 November 1888

DICKEN'S PRIVATE LIFE. A special correspondent of the Chicago Tribune lately published a conversation he had had with Mrs. Boucicault on the subject of the eminent persons she had known. Talking of Charles Dickens, the actress said:-" The public has been un just to him in some ways ; and the story of his private life, for instance, has never been rightly told. His wife was a plain woman and not an intellectual one. She was a good mother, though, and managed her house well; but as Charles improved and boadened, accumulating more money meanwhile, she failed to grow with him. He entertained largely the most charming men and women in England. She did not care greatly for them, having no literary traditions or tastes. Then her sister came to live with them. She was a beautiful woman, and a highly accomplished one as well. She received the distinguished guests, and entertained them. Without doubt she did this party to conceal her sister's deficiencies, and party because it was natural for...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 17 November 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, iiiaiflerent good to either. Gininderra is a little one-pub-and-a-lockup settlement away in the heart of the great and mighty O'Sullivan's electorate, and amongst its half-dozen shepherds and antiquated old shell backs it claims a highly-cultured individual who writes to the Goulburn POST under the nom-de plume of the " Wizard." This " Wizard " is a queer fish, to be sure-yet why he dubs himself "Wizard" is mysterious, unless he deems the term synonomous with donkey or ass. Judging from the character of his recent lucubrations, the *' Wizard " undoubtedly has in his veins a strong strain of asinine blood, and when he comes to deal with the question of Land Nationalization he shows a more dense ignorance of its main prin ciples than even his own Great Mogul, the O'Booli gan, or Sir Henry Parkes have shown by recent utterances. The " Wizard " thinks that '"judging from the sickly manner in which the Land Nat...

Sir William Monkbarns was imme diately surrounded by a clique of club gossips, and Leslie stood aloof till he heard his own name mentioned and fol lowed by some whispers. He then came forward. The engineer greeted him with a warm shaking of the hands, saying, ' Glad to see you, my boy ! How is your bonnie lassie ? I must come and see her. You are back rather soon. You are the very person I wanted to see, because you can tell me about this new invention of Vane's.' 4 What new invention ? You quite forget I h...
