Ladies' Column ORIGINAL ' LONDON LETTER Bt MBS STRANGE BUTSOIST. (in Bights Ebsebvkd.) j AN ELDERLY LADY'S COSTUME . iiiSffHOULD in itB way be just as up ?SKSj to-date as that of her younger -g3j| sisters. It is a great pity that ss many women aB they advaneo in years become rather oarelese as to their appear ance and forget that it is just as incum beatapon them to be pleasant to look at ?»- aver it was in their youth. In point of fact, even more so, for when the 88pecial charm of juvenility is no longer theirs, they need some artificial aid to make up for the loss of it. I trnst that I may not be misunderstood by this to advocate dyeing the prey hair, nor paint ing eyes, and complexion, which so greatly caricatures those who do so. What I mean is that elderly women muBt realise that the natural changes in their per sonal appearance require accompanying changes in their attire to Buit aocli alterations', and that they will look far better if they take a little trouble to carry thes...

NOT THE PLEDGE. A strong temperance advocate spoke at a temperance meeting in Burnley, a few years ago, and during his Speech he re ferred to the wealth of the publican. ' Look at the publican,' he said, ' he can have his dogcart to ride about in, silk hat, sold watch and albert, diamond ring, &c.' ; and then he urged all to sign the pledge, aa all the publican's posses sions were got out of drink. A short time ago the advocate was on a visit to Southport, when he was tapped on the shoulder, and asked if he was not Mr. So-an-So, the temperance lecturer. He replied in the affirmative. Then hk questioner said he wished to thank him for the advice he gave at Burnley years ago. The lecturer, thinking he had made a '' recruit, said : ' You signed the pledge then I?' He was somewhat startled to receive the reply: ? Signed the pledge, be hanged. I bought a pub, and yon see I have all these,' pointing to his gold watch and chain, and to a smart little pony and cart close by.
NOT HANDSOME. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
: NOT HANDSOME. Dr. Book, the celebrated Yorkshire vicar, was not a handsome man. An old acquaintance says of him : ' The boy Walter Farquhar Hook might almost have been described, as one of those on whom Nature is Baid to hava tried her 'prentice hand.' He was very fond of commenting on his owe ugliness, sad repeated with great amusement some of the 'left-handed com pliments' he had recived. A little girl was one day told to 'go and kiBS Dr. Hook.' She looked at him, hesitated, and exclaimed : ' Tell mamma to go and kiss him first 1' On one occasion the good vicar saw a little girl looking attentively in his face. ' Well, my dear,' said he, ' 1 don't think you've seen me before.' ' Oh, yes, I have.' 'Where?' ?I saw you the other day at the Zoo, climbing up a pole, and I gave yon a bun.'

Another tale, related by an Indian journal, concerned the time soon after he -egan to rule in 1880.

Sketcher. THE UP-TO-CATE FAD. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 11 April 1902
Sketcher. THE UP-TO-CATE FAD. jfTKHE nineteenth century is the age liWb of fads. The people of our day 3lt» possess the peculiarity of mind which tends to exaggerate every preference and bring into undue impor tanoe the passing whim of the hour- It seems impossible for anything to become nnnnlir wit.hnnt becoming a fad and nothing can become a fad without, sooner or later, reaohisg the stage when it is tiresome to its followers and utterly loathsome to all othors. And yet sometimes the antifaddist may he wrong. Should a man enter a restaurant and order his tea without sugar, he is at once marked aB an eccen trie, a faddist. But the man may be no such thing. Tea without sugar is a cure for headache, an invigorating and re freshing beverage, and in its effect on some people is to be infinitely preferred to the cup that contains sugar. The fad or craze may be defined as the perversion of a good thing to bad use. It is most glaringly illustrated by the readiness of people to catoh up Bo...
