SOME SOCIAL OBSERVANCES: THE RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
SOME SOCIAL OBSERVANCES: THE RECEPTION. lecuptions are of the noon, afternoon, wedding, und evening variety, but the com mon or idiotic form takes effect in the after. noon. It is generally by a married woman without the consent of her husband, and for the purpose of gutting even with everyone ehe knows. The firet reception known was hold in the Tower of Babel, but that was only the embryoolo form of the function of today. Any married woman can hold a recoption, provided he has a husband who is unwilling, money enoulgl and enemies enouglh to snub. A husband who is entirely willing to allow his wife to hold a reception wouldn't be able to earn money enough to pay for it. The idea of the reception originated in the barbario feasts of our progenitors, where, when captives wore killed, other tribes were asked in during the afternoon and evening to pick them to pleces. We have advanced since then. Now the picking to pieces la purely mental, although it takes place on the spot. A receptio...

THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC DEBT. (REPRINTED FROM "THE AUSTRALASIAN INSURANCE AND BANKING RECORD," 20TH MARCH, 1903.) [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIO DEBT.. c Br OEonOE D. MEUDAL.L, (REPRINTB? FROM "TRn AUBTRALAsIAN 1 INBURANOH AND tBANKING RECORD," 20TH MAnou, 1903") In this young democracy proper managemont of the public finances is cmore essential than in older comomun ities with fixed populations and settled 'policies. Australia could never have reached her present stage of progress witieet the aid of the flood of foreign capital which has poured into the country from Britain. The amount of I capital invested in Australasian bonds and public companies in 1902 totalled £541,000,000, of which £387,000,000 case from the United Kingdom. Private investments from abroad are not included in these figures. Gooad finance is vital to Australian welfare, publio and private, and good finance has been conspicuous by its scantiness. The administration of the public finances has been purely empirical. The creation of the national debt has been slipshod and haphazard, and its genesis was unaccompanied either by ende or ...

H.R.H. THE PRINCE OF WALES. THE MOST DILIGENT "WORKING MAN" IN THE KINGDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
HR.H. THE PRINCE OF WALES. THE MOST DILIGENT " WORK ING MAN " IN THE KINGDOM. It seems somewhat curious that one man should be born a pauper and another a prince ; that one should be en dowed by naturu with physical and in telleetual gifts, and another with small stock of either; that one man should have opportunities of culture and deve lopment thrust uponhim by llis environ, ment and another should have to drudge through a life of hard muscular labour with little or no chance of sell-oulture. It is still more curious to reflect that on coming lnto this planet, one is given no olo!ce in any one of these particu lars. Nature appears to give plenty to one and poverty to another haphazard, ins it were, and, so far an we can see, without rhyme or reason. According to human ideas of equity, she ought at least in justice to bestow on each parson the same chances. But this is evidently not Nature's way of doing, and perhaps if we knew a little more, we should be willing to concede that sh...
WEDDING CUSTOMS OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 3 April 1903
WEDDING CUSTOMS OF THE PAST. There used to be a little Irish village in which the postman always gave a present to the bride, and received a pound of tobacco in return from the bridegroom. Formerly it was quite usual for gloves to be distributed at weddings, each in vited guest receiving a pair before tihe ceremony. Quaint old P'epya, in his diary, describes how, being present ut a marriage service, lie " lhad two pair of gloved, like all tile lest," which suggests that the bride und bridegroom were desirous of making a generous show. IJerriek wrote in his " Huspridas ": " What posies for our wedding rings, What gloves we'll give, and ribban ings." PRESENTS OF CLOTtHES AND GLOVES. Once upon a time (says the" Western Weekly News ") wealthy bridegrooms were expected to present each belfry man with a new set of clothes; so, if many rich men got married in a parish, the bell-ringers' wardrobes became re markably well-stocked. Another custom connecting gloves with weddings is mnen tionre...
