TALES, SKETCHES, &c. "A SURGICAL EXPERIMENT," [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
TALES, SKETCHES, &lt;fec. "A SUfiGWAL EXPERIMENT;' A young man, with a peculiarly painful look of distress, presented himself, about ten o'clock one morning, at the residence of the least known and yet the most re markable of all the surgeons in the great city of This surgeon lived in a queer old brick house of most primitive kind-a structure entirely out of date, and tolerable only in the decayed part of the city in which it stood ; large, gloomy, mouldy, damp, and dark ; abounding in Jong, dark halls, dismal rooms, and mys terious closets and cellars ; absurdly large for the small family-man and wife-that occupied it. The house described, the man is portrayed-but not the woman. He could be agreeable enough on oc casion, but for all that, ho was but ani mated mystery ; his wife was weak, wan, reticient, evdently miserable, and possibly living a life of dread and horror-perhaps witness of repulsive things, subject of anxieties, and victim of fear and tyranny ; but there is a...
LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
LOCAL AND GENERAL. THANKS.-We are indebted to Mr. Andrew Town, of Richmond, for the supply of a number of agricultural papers representative of the various colonies. EXHIBITION COMMISSIONER. -In the new batch of commissioners recently appointed we notice the name of William Hillier Holborow, M.P. How JOIIN CHINAMAN PUTS OUT A FIRE. Several destructive fires have occurred during the past week, and it will perhaps be as well to give a little useful information as to the method adopted to save fencing by the Chinese. A Colonial or a European will get a bucket of water and slash it upon the flames, extinguishing them, certainly, but at the same time wasting a large quantity of the valuable liquid. The childlike and bland Celestial, on the other hand, gets his bucket, and with it a pannikin, with which he quietly pours the water into the mortice-lioles, securing the de sired end without any waste. There is a lesson to be learned here from the simple Mongolian, surely. DEATH OF MRS. SCOTL...
Land Nationlization Again. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
Land Nationlization Again. THE question of land nationalization is one which occupies an important posi tion in the minds of politicians and the people just now. It is a well-known fact that the prosperity of a country must not be measured by the number of its capital ists, but by the multiplicity of its happy homes. Goldsmith very aptly puis it when, in " The Deserted Village," he writes-" 111 fares the land to hastening ills a prey, Where wealth accumulates, and men decay." That country is truly great where knowledge and wealth are widely diffused, and this can never be thoroughly accomplished whilst a favored 1 few are allowed to monopolise the soil. Labour is robbed, and idleness en riched, by the present system. Jones an energetic farmer, goes into the country and purchases a block of land at half-a* crown an acre; he builds his solitary house, and commences to till his land. Soon another farmer comes along, and as ' he liker, a neighbour he settles down along side of Jones. No...
LAW REPORTS. RICHMOND POLICE COURT. (Before Messrs. William Lamrock and C. S. Guest, Js.P.) TRESPASSING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
LAW REPORTS. RICHMOND POLICE COURT. (Before Messrs. William Lamrock and C. S. Guest, Js.P.) TRESPASSING John Parker was charged with tres passing on the enclosed land of Mr. J. E. Onus, at North Richmond, on the 20th instant. Mr. Walker appeared for complainant' and Mr. J. J. Dillon for defendant. The trespass was admitted by defen dant's solicitor, and a claim of right made on behalf of John Merrick. Mr. Onus was examined, and stated that he had purchased the land at an auction sale, the auctioneers having in structions from one C. T. R. Merrick; lie had purchased it six years ago, and had been in the uninterrupted possessioN of it ever since. For the defence, John Merrick was examined, and stated that he claimed the land under the will of his grandfather, John Merrick. The land was entailed, and no authority could be obtained to dispose of it. According to the will he was entitled to its possession. The defen &nbsp; dant, Parker, was his servant, and was acting under his i...
WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
WHAT WE HEAR. That Windsor can show as much good, honest dust to the square inch as any town in the colony. As witness last Saturday's storms. That the.Council should subsidise water carts to lay the dust on boisterous days. That the residents should get hold of their Mem ber during the recess, and give him a list of their requirements. That Alick will probably smell a rat, and get away by the deadhead Parliamentary train, which leaves for Melbourne early next week. That bush fires, caused by careless persons, have created much irreparable damage throughout the district. That the farms around Windsor and Richmond look really splendid, despite the fact that rain is urgently needed. That the GAZETTE came in for a large amount of criticism last week, not of a hostile, but of a very pleasing character. That Mr. Scotland's retirement will be keenly felt by all who have had business or social rela tions with him during the past seventeen years. That Host Huggins, of the Carrington, has st...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to mo, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifiercnt good to either. TAMING OF THE SHREW, Is it fair and just that when a tenant has cleared a farm he should pay increased rent-in other words, pay interest on the improvements his own labour hae created ? Most men say " No." But the owner of a small farm, who pays no rent-as he supposes-does not see that a change in the land system would improve his position. Let us suppose a farm of 50 acres, with the owner living on it, rent free. Well, he is really paying interest on the capital sunk in his farm. If the land is worth £40 per acre, the purchase money will be £2000. If, instead of investing this £2000 in the farm, he had put it out at 8 per cent interest, he would, without any labour, be receiving £160 per annum. So that really he must deduct this sum of £160 from the gross yield of his farm before he can reckon upon payment for the labour of tilling it, to say nothing of profit. Now, it is a fac...
POETRY. AN OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 28 July 1888
An Obituary The following bit of Bret-Harteish verse, from the pen of Brunton Stephens, is well-worth re- &nbsp; publishing, on account of its literary merit and manly ring: &nbsp; Jacob Low, DIED Sett 14, 1882 "Passed in his checks !" &nbsp; Ay, male, no tick When old Death becks — It's cash down slick.

TRAVELLING ON THE WINDSOR LINE [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888
TRAVELLING ON THE WINDSOR LINE First Male Passenger : I wonder why the train to Windsor is the slowest in the colony ? Secoqtf Ditto : Oh, it's because the people arc so very slow themselves, and won't " indignate " like the people of other towns. Old Lady : Yer right, Sir, yer right. I've lived in Windsor, down the Pennysnla, nigh on 40 years, and the people's as slow as thr}' make 'em. Why, goodness me, if old Goodchap was to put cattle trucks on, and a team of bullocks to drag 'em to Windsor, I'm bles't if I don't think the Windsor folk would ride in them without a murmur.

THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888
THE FARMER. A leading farmer writes :-I do not think ii necessary to go great expenses of building, a silo.. My process of filling is.as follows :-Cut the grass; (I use second-crop clover and rye grass) and put it in as cut, or if it is very wet. I let it remain at day or so before hauling. I then fill the shed and keep a horse tramping on it while filling to settle it better ; and when I have finished filling, which lasts over three or four days, 1 weigh it down. It will then heat to about 170 degs. F. I let it re main until the winter, and cut it out in tiers, and! cut it to chaff"with some straw, about fewo^tliirds. of the latter to one of the former. I find ensilage quite equal to roots, at about one-third their cost. I find that the animals fed on the mixture of sil age and straw chaff do very well and have all the appearance of health and vigour. The cattlte are j ravenous for it, and eat up every bat, and will lick | the jacket of fi man vtho attends them. There is. | another...

The District. Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888
The District. Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) NARROW ESCAPE.-Whilst some lady relatives .of Mr. Edwin Pitt, of Bronte, near Richmond, were driving through town on Monday last, having two little girls-one the daughter of Mr. W. Pitt, of Sydney-sitting on the back seat of the buggy, the vehicle in turning a coiner of Windsor-street .gave a lurch, and Mr. Pitt's daughter was thrown ?out the side of it. She fell with her head between the brake and the back wheel. The vehicle was immediately stopped, but not before the child had revived a severe gash on the side of the head. She was at once taken to Dr. Davidson, who at tended to her injuries. The shock she received was a severe one, and her escape from immediate death may be said to be miraculous. She is pro gressing as well as can be expected. RIFLE CLUB.-Mr. G. B. Bowen, of Bowen Mount, has lately been endeavouring to form a Civilians' Ride Club in this portion of the dis trict.

Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 4 August 1888
Riverston e. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) The necessity which exists for additional schooi accommodation here is being felt very much just now, and if the wants of the residents in that direction are not satisfied before the summer fairly sets in the result may be very unpleasant A very large number of children attend the small school at present in use, but it is not nearly com modious enough, and the result is that they are huddled together, and inconvenienced in many ways. A small school is required at Marsden 1'ark, and lhis would relieve the main school in a more or less degree. A lock-up is also much re quired, and considering the important place which Riverstone is developing into, the residents, if they placed their requirements before the authori ties, should experience no difficulty in having them satisfied. The concert which is to take place on the 14U1 instant promises to be a great success, both from a financial and an artistic point of view. It will be given in the Cosmopo...
