The Maclean Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898
The Maclean Hospital. Verily the ways of the Maclean hospital com mittee aro beyond comprehension. Last Friday afternoon, in meeting asssembled, tho august committee neatly placed a mill-stone around their necks. The election of only one medical officer to servo in connection with the hospital opons up a good case against the wisdom of tnoeo who are supposed to havo the well being of the institution at heart. Without going in for olaborato arguments to strengthen our contention, wo unhesitatingly assert that the principlo of having one doctor to attend to tho hospital is bad, and we can safely anticipato an endorsement of our contention from any person whoso mind has not beon poisoned by bias. Wo could quote many instances to show that tho prinoipio is pernicious, but will satisfy ourselve3 by drawing attention to cho danger that would exist if the dootor was away visiting his private pationte, and an urgent case was brought to the hospital. Tho patient would require immediate medic...

River Bank Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898
River B^nk Protection. Sin, — I seo in recent issues of your paper suggestions for tho protection of tho river banks from oiosion by the floods by which we aro periodically visited. 1 have seen Mr Bale's proposal, which may suit where tho banks are low, but would never stand tho trial of a heavy iiood where the banks are high and sub ject to the -wash of steamers, as is the case from Maclean to G-raiton. 1 forward herewith apian for the protection is river bunks which is used in the rivors on. the Coiui nent of Europe, where floods are even worse thau here, and where I have never seen any of these bul warks carried away, even by the worst floods. Ii. certainly is expensive, but when tho work is properly carried out it lasts a lifo time and is woll worth aii the money it costs. The only drawback in this river is the cobra or 'sea lice,' from the attacks Oi which no -woodwork in the water is safe, as ah know who havo had such experience in such matters On that account the parts of the...

MARION'S LOST LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 March 1898
MARION'S LOST LOVER With a feeling of mingled fatigue and relief, Marion threw herself into a chair. All day she had been working, for it was only yesterday that she and Marr, who filled the place of both servant and companion, had moved into this quaint little eottago. Moving had always been distasteful to Marion. She would never have thought of leaving the old home at Riverside had not her sinter and the children moved away ; but they had always been within a few doors of her, so when they went away Marion felt lonely. She longed for the children. She missed chubby-chwked Frunkie ; she. missed her little I'.nmesake's bright eyes and baby kisses. There loie, wrieu nor sister wrow; tier ot cue. loveli ness of the new town, and of the kindness and sociability of the people, trying to prevail upon her to go there, Marion replied : ' Look for a iii;e, cosy cottupe. Now that you are all gone, it is lonesome here.' A suitable cottage was found, and Marion, jmt two days before, moved into...
MRS. LANGTRY'S FROCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 March 1898
MRS. LANGTRY'S FROCKS. One of Mrs. Larigtry's gowns in tbe new play 'Gossip' is very pale blue baptiste, so soft nud fine as to resemble chiffon or crepe. The bodice is crossed by diagonal lines of creamy white, and so are tbe sleeves, in which the puffs are verv full at the elbow and slight on the shoulders. The touch that gives distinctive neas to this toilette is that which introduces at the waist, in the midst uf all this faint blue cloudiness, a belt of bright,' emerald green satin ribbon, an emphatic note which is re peated in a large, square emerald brooch at the nick, set in a brooch which clasps a billowy white tulle tie. A little creamy lace at either side of (he bodice gives relief to the hlueness and whiteness, and a brown hut adds a deep note which is of value in the composition, though it, too, is trimmed with white niuus, whiie frills, a ' comb ' of white roses at the back, ami a little ruched pale blue ribbon. Mrs. Langtry's whitu satin ball dress is embellished with...
