Nothing But Cambric. "You'd never guess what that nian's here for." said ani attendant at an English luna tic asylum, pointing out a seemingly intelli gent man. "He's cracked on cambric-at least, that's what we call him among our selves." " Whatever do you mean ?" was the natural query. " Why, he used to be in a good way of business, when he was suddenly taken with a fit of collecting ladies' cambric handker chiefs. He would go up to people in the streets, and want to buy their handker chiefs. If they wouldn't sell, he would go on bidding until hd got them, which was generally the case, as a refusal put him into a fearful passion. " At last so many women began to trade upon his mania that he went bankrupt. Then, having no money, he had to resort to stealing the handkerchiefs. " He was caught and imprisoned over and over again, but, as nothing would cure him, his people at last sent him here. It's curious that he never stole anything but handkerchiefs and if by chance hegot hold of a...

Matters for Engaged Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900
Matters for Engaged Girls. An English paper furnishes the following mottoes for engaged girls. The mottoes were the result of a prize competition, and the one which took the prize heads the list : Find in the husband what you found in the lover. Exact attentions, but show your appre ciation of them. If your lover wants to stray, Hie is better far away. Be discreet, Not too sweet. Jealous never, Trusting ever. Who by love gains, by love retains. When two are of one mind much can be done. Never pretend to be better or more charming than you are in reality, for though artifice may catch love, only truth and honesty can keep it. Care for your lover as much as you please. but do not be always telling him so-the best of men are better for an occasional doubt. Patience is love's right hand. Love is mortal, and can die of a sur feit as well as comsumption. He may call you an angel, but it is the woman in you that he loves. Don't quarrel ; but if you do pull the blinds down first. Better bre...
