Richard Anthony Proetor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
Richard Anthony Proetor. Mr. R, S. Smytlie learned the sad ftews of Professor Proctor's death on landing at,Napier (N. Z.) fropi Australia. In ;m " In inemnriam " notice contiibuted to the NEW Zkai.AND Tiwiis, Mr. Smythe says: Proctor was not only known In NeiV Zealand lis k public lecturer; many people had the pleasure of his personal acquaintance. Yet he was not what Dr. Johnson called " a clubable man." He was put up al the Melbourne and otliej' hading clubs, but he never went. Although a Uni versity man, and keenly sensitive to anything approaching rudeness, he disliked conventionality. With the common prejudice against members tif the theatrical profession lie had 110 symjiatliy. He was a genial man and considered I that everybody engaged in. entertaining the public was doing useful work. Once in "this very city he spent £20 in providing supper For a full circus company.

WHAT WE HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
WHAT WE HEAli. That Mr. Carroll, the popular schoolmaster at Nelson, has been promoted to Dalton. Nelson's loss is Dalton's gain. That informers should be treated to tar and feathers. That people who poke their noses into other people's business should ^3 similarly treated. That Richmond is very badly oil for water just now. That it is proposed that Ham Common shall be sold, and the proceeds be devoted towards obtaining a water supply for Windsor and Rich mond. A good idea. That the GAZETTE is tickling some people up. It will do a little more in this direction before long. That for wretched, howling dogs and cater wauling ca4s, Windsor takes the cake. When a cat yells on a wall, it's not the cat we object to, but the waul. That a weir is to be built over the Nopcan at Penrith. This will not benefit the Hawkesbury, and forms another good reason why the Govern ment should clcar the river. That a large snake was killed at Mr. E. Rouse's residence last week. That several tall snake stor...

H. Holborrow, Richmond ; F. M'Donald and Joseph Smith, Kurrajong ; C. P. Ayling, Riverstone ; and Themas j. Thompson, St. Albans. WATERING PLACE FOR TRAINS AT MULGRAVE - Some time ago attention was drawn by the '»A2ETTU to the fact that pipes for carrying the >vnter from the tank at Mulgrave to the railway Nation, had been lying on the ground unused for some years, and that the trains were further delayed after stopping at the platform in order to lake water at the tank some few hundred yards distant. Since the GAZETTE took up the question the pipes have been laid and water connected to the station, but it appears now that the Depart ment have made a mistake, either in having the pipes too small or that the force ...

The Sunday Stone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
The Sunday Stone. In some of the coal-mining districts of England there is found a curious deposit, which the miners call" Sunday-stone." On examining a section of a piece of it, it is seen to consist of layers of stalagmitic matter regularly superimposed on each other, with this peculiarity, that after six stratas of a blackish hue there appears, with the utmost regularity, one stratum of pure white, then six more of the black with a seventh of the white, and so on through the entire thickness of the de posit. The explanation of this remarkable formation is easy. Down in the coalmine, water, filtrating through the limestone rooft, becomes highly impregnated with carbonate of lime. Dropping on the floor in a continual trickle, this forms a deposit. While the miners are at work the coal dust which pervades the atmosphere, mingling with the dropping water, imparts a blackish hue to the deposit. But when the Sunday comes round, and the mine is quiet, the water having nothing to sully i...

Richmond Literary and Debating Club. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Richmond Literary and Debating Club. On Tuesday evening the last business meeting of the Session was held; the business being a mock Parliamentary Election. The meeting was open to the public and a considerable number of ladies were present. Mr. T. Walker, who presided, having explained the method of procedure, Mr. Klein of Yarramundi, and Mr. R. Buttsworth, Richmond, were nominated as fit and proper persons to re present this electorate in Parliament. Mr. Klein spoke first and in an able, eloquent, nnd witty speech expressed his views on many sub jects. declaring himself in favour of " Free Educa tion, irrigation, water-conservation, federation, cremation, member-remuneration, direct taxation" and a good many other " ations" which have slipped from our memory. The candidate after making the most specious promises, (ranging from tramway lines in bed-rooms, and fountains in back yards, to fat billets in the Civil Service) concluded with a brilliant peroration in which he flatteringly...
The Single Tax. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
The Single Tax. For the infomation of those who are not perfectly conversant with the aims of the Single Tax party, we give the following infomation from the pen of that " crazy poet," John Farrell. This party would impose an annual tax on the unim proved value of all land, which would be periodically increased, say every year or two, until the tax reached the point of taking over the whole of the value to the State. No leases or deeds need be inter fered with; everyone could continue to hold his land so long as he paid the tax. But no one could hold land idle; to pay the tax it would have to be put to its most productive use. In order to put it to much use labor would be in demand and wages would rise. It is not by the using of land, not by putting it to its best use, but by holding it out of its use of others, save at an extortionate rental, that poor struggling devils are forced out on the central wastes. Under land nationalisation there would soon be millions of acres of better ...

The Flying Fox Pest. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
The Flying Fox Pest. Mr. R. Forrester writes Just a line to tell you that we went to the fox den, as arranged. There were twenty-three of us in all. Rain came on on Wednesday night; went to the den in the morning ; some of the party shot a few foxes, and then cleared for home, as the rain still continued mist ing. I and eight more of the " old brigade" stayed till Saturday morning, hoping the rain would clear, and give us a show at the foxes, but the weather getting heavier, we cleared for home, though very reluctantly, as we were all bent on a brush with the foxes ; but although baulked, we are not defeated. I and the " old contingent " are going to tackle them again about Tuesday week if the weather clears up. Fine soldiers the average Hawkesbury natives would make-can't stand water, not likely to stand fire, but can stand a deluge of whiskey.
