ST. JOSEPH'S CONVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
JOSEPH'S CONVENT. On Monday afternoon a large number of ladies and gentlemen assembled at the Convent of St. Joseph, Windsor, to witness the annual exhibition and entertainment by the pupils. The school room was nicely decorated, and throughout the whole affair the pupils demonstrated the fact that their tuition in the various branches of learning had not been neglected by the Sisters in charge of them. The programme of the entertainment being a long one, we will' have to content our selves by dealing with it very briefly. One of the most meritorious items-where all were above the average-was a children's comic song, " The loss of a doll," by two little dots, Misses Lyons and Heavey, who created no end of amusement by their childish eccentricities. The recitation, " Betsy and I are out," and " How Betsy and I made up," by Miss Thynne, were also excellently delivered. The programme comprised the follow ing items, each having due justice done it by the several performers:-"Adeste Fide...
PUBLIC SCHOOL, FREEMAN'S REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
PUBLIC SCHOOL, FREEMAN'S REACH. Miss Clara Knight, pupil teacher at Freeman's Reach Public School, presided over by Mr. J. Walker, left on Friday last. Prior to her departure, the lady mentioned was presented with a neat gold brooch by the pupils. Miss Knight had been pupil teacher at Freeman's Reach for four years, and proved herself to be remarkably efficient, at the same time endearing herself to the pupils. Miss Knight goes into the training school at Hurlestone, and we may expect to hear in a short time that she has distinguished herself.
HIGH SCHOOL, WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
HIGH SCHOOL, WINDSOR. On Friday this educational establishment, so ably conducted by Mr. Young, broke up for the holidays. On that day an exhibition of the work of the pupils took place, and one glance at the exhibits was sufficient to show that Mr. Young had used his best endeavours, and successfully, too, in bringing those under his care to the front. In every instance, the work of the scholars in the various departments was exceptionally good, and elicited much praise from the parents and visitors who looked upon it. Mr. Young's school is gradually growing, and will in time become a most popular and important institution.

Irrigation of the Hawkesbury and Nepean Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
Irrigation of the Hawkesbury and Nepean Valley. On Monday evening last a public meeting was held at the School of Arts, Windsor, when Mr T H. F. Grfliin of Richmond, delivered a lecture on the Irrigation Question. There was a Rood attend ance, and the Mayor of Windsor, Mr Mortley, who occupied the chair, read the advertisement con vening the meeting, remarking that in his capacity as Mayor he presided. They had been called to gether to listen to Mr. Griffin's lecture, and he (the Mayor) thought it needless to ask for Mr. Griffin a fair hearing, as the subject was one that deserved their consideration. Mr. Griffin was received with applause. He thought that as he got his bread in the district, he might do some good by taking up this important question. He had travelled through the district when the drought was so severe a few weeks ago, and his scheme met with some support. Since then, he was glad to say, they had had copious rains, and that fact might have damped the ardour of those...
The Windsor School of Arts. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
The Windsor School of Arts. [TO THE EDITOR.] Sir,-If the subject he not too stale, permit me &lt;o briefly reply to Progressive Committee man. As it senilis to liim "rather out of place to vent the ideas of committee-men, through the press" why did ho n w-t come to the .scratch on Monday my lit last, so form the desired quorum and ventilate his ideas-if he have any-in committee ? Had there been a quorum I certainly should not have troubled you with this, but have settled the matter, on what 'Progressive Committeeman' thinks is the proper battle ground-and here I agree with him, but if people with progressing ideas will not at tend to their duties, what is a poor body like me to do ? At the last committee-meeting I challenged the unknown champion of the institution to reveal himself, and there was no response. There were five of us present and I conclude that the Pro gressive one was not of them. Last Monday night, there were four members of the committee at their post at the...

The Pests the Farmer has to deal with. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
The Pests the Farmer has to deal with. As though the drought were not evil enough to cope with, the farmers in this district are visited by several pests which destroy what little crops of fruit and grain they are able to cultivate in dry weather. The sparrows are becoming more troublesome every day, and as soon as the stone fruit shows signs of ripening, kthey pick the trees quite clean. The result is that the fruit has to be pulled before it is ripe. It is calculated that if wheat were grown here this season every grain would be taken by these pests un less a careful watch were kept. The hares and flying-foxes too, are proving most destructive. The former get into the orchards, bark the trees and eat anything within reach. In several parts of the district, fruitgrowers have been compelled to go in for wire-nctling rather extensively, and Mr. H. Turner, of the Terrace has had to purchase no less than 2000 yards to keep his orchard from being overrun. The foxes are at work all round...
