BRIDAL TRIMMINGS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
BRIDAL TRIMMINGCS. Fashions for brides are on the whole not departures from simple lines, though naturally they partake of some of the prettiest styles of ornaments that can be devised. A charming instance is a bridal dress in white brocade with feath ery pattern, have a round train and foot bordered with festooned fluance of lace, the same lace being repeated as frillings over the shoulders, coming to points at the waist. Above the frillings of lace are cascades of material, which frame the al:ern`tely lengthwise and crosswise full front, and are caught at one side with a puff of silk, at the other with a sprig of orange blossom. A sash of broad ribbon surrounds the waist, and from this rib bons extend to the top of the flounce to terminate there in liberal bows. Large puffed sleeves; veil secured with a I wreath of orange blossom.

DECORATIVE ITEMS. Very dainty and inexpensive decora tive linen sets for bedrooms are made of butcher-blue sateen, which is embroid ered all over with a design in white, re presenting sattered daisies, or some similar small flowers. Of course, con ventional embroidery may be employed in the case too, but it is not so much in accordance with the simplicity of the material. Each aeticle should be edged with a fairly wide bordering of torchon lace. There should be a long strip for the table, mats for the wash-hand stand, bed coverlet, chair backs, and towel horse screens, which simply means the towel-horse to be covered with 'a lng strip of material and this tied down beneath with ribbons.

AN ANECDOTE OF HENRY CLAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
AN ANECDOTE OF, HENRY CLAY. Henry Clay, one of the most popular American statesmen of his day, was travelling somewhere "out West," and put up for a night at a country tavern. "Mine host," in looking over the register, discovered the name, "Henry Clay." There was but one " Clay." Could it be possible that he had this distin guished man under his roof? He was astonished, delighted. Next morning, as soon as the great ima: appeared, the ad miring Boniface bustled 'forward, and making his rude bow, said, " M r. Clay, I believe, sir T' "That is my name," said the gentle Iran, in his affable tone. " Mr. Clay, the Congressman 1" "Yes, sir."

Genius and Insanity. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 16 November 1894
Genius and Insanity.o It seems to me rather strange that men of learning, even men of genius, should know so little about genius and insanity. Even some go so far. as to say that genius is almost indistinguishz.ble from insanity. Mr. Hinton says-" If there is one thing which more than any other might seem to be beyond the sphe-e of explanation, and above all possible reducing within the bounds of law, it is perhkps the mysterious gift of genius. Almost might we seek to explain creation, or hop a to find any other origin than the Maker's direct endowmenit for that transcendental power, apparently the most unfathomable attribute of the mind." Lord Justice Blackburn, giving evidence before a select committe,e of the House of Commons, said-'- I have read every defi nition which I could meet with, and never was satisfied with one of them, and have endeavored in vain to make one satisfac tory to myself. I verily believe that it is not in human power to do it.:' Very high medical authoriti...
