A woman near Melbourne dreamed last week that a certuin horse was gtfing to win the Cup. In her dream she saw tho animal win, and heard the people calling its name, and so impressed was she with the vividness of t he- vision that she seized the earliest op portunity to back tho animal. ' I have bet two pounds on him,' she told a friend, ' and it ia the first time I have evpr bet upon a horse ri\oo.' ' Who did you b9t with ?' she was Bsked. ' Oh, a gentleman in Bnurko street.' ' Where is your ticket?' ' I did not get any ticket. Is it usual ?' ' What is the bookmaker's name?' ' I do not know, I am sure.' ' What is the name of the horse ?' 'Kama. Do you know h'm ?' ' No, I do not, There is no fucIi horse entered for Iho Cup.' Another woman's faith iu dreams has gone fof over.

A NEW FAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898
A NEW FAD. Left hand shaking is the nowr-st fad, and a most embarrassing one to the uninitiated. Indeed, in this f,.d the life of tho uninitiated is not wholly free from parping care, for the knowledge of the fad i» not wide-r spreud, and it is' a puzzling t-ituation fur the' ultra fashionable girl when she advances to meet a girl fritnrl or foe with hsr left hand raised at the proper angle of greeting, only to en counter a right hand all'- out' of focus with hor own, and accompanied by a most bewildered expression of coun tenance. It is ft trying lvoment for all. hands, and the girl who htva the con Bcinusnnss of being very much upto date is really not much more comfor table in mind than is the girl who is oppressed with a sudden fear of her friend's Kaniiy. But the very ecoeii trioity of this fad will help it to bo a go. The btiBy world will not'spard the time tn acquire tii'o trick, hence its exclusivonos3 and popularity will 're main for some timo unmarred.
