EASTER EXCURSION TO N.W.CAST OF TASMANIA [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

By J. M. . At 5 o'clock on Thursday afternoon — the Thursday before Easter — 130 people wure gathered together on the Port Melbourne pier, waiting the arrival of the Union Steam Ship Company's s. Te Anau. In a few moments the steamer appeared, with lines of bunting gaily flying from deck to masthead ; slowly she swung round and made fast to the very end o . tho pier, and then the people, forming into pro cession, straggled along, laden with wraps, bags portmanteaus, and 20 minutes afterwards the vessel was heading down the Bay, bound for the N. W. Coast of Tasmania. 'Wo were under the personal care of Mr. Dogherty, the representa tive of the Union Co., who conducted the trip in snoh ft manner as to give complete satisfao tiou to everyone— no easy task where so many were present. The programme showed there was to bo no lack of variety in scenery, sport 'and amusement either on the coast or inland, and as it was well carried out the wonder was that the enterprising company could give ...

Now that the grave baa closed on all that is mortal of Americans typical poet, there- will1 -be much olatter of controversy 'over the man and hia works, some affirming them to be deserving of full roverouce and somo ruthlesbly condemn ing both. Aa one who knew Walt Whit man porsounlly.'oud Jim writingH at Hrst linnJ, not through the coloring of commentators, I may claim a word in the discussion. Whenever Whitman's name is mentioned, one hears ex pressions either of censure or regret at the alleged indecency of some of .his. poems, incon sequence of which, we are told, their publication was prohibited- in Massachusetts and the author himself ejected from a clerkship in ilie public service. All this is true in a sen-e. Whitman is' occasionally 'indecent' in the same manner as a medical or surgical work is indecent and for the same reason, ?

THIS 'DOS MUGUAOHOS.' This Stoiiy ov a Ohooked Arm. By E. Henglk. In the rough country toward tho head of the Rio l'euasco in New Mexico the wanderer may see to-day two low, rounded little hills, whioli the natives will point out to him as ' Los Miioliachos, or tho 'Dos Muchachos ' ('Two Boys'). Directly between these two hills is the spot of action of our story. But for this the hills would never have been called tho 'Two Boys' and for the matter of that Garcia Otero would never have had his crooked arm. Uiircia Otero ^Gar-seo-ah O;Cay-ro)a few years ago was a young Mttxicin perhaps 26 or 26 years oi age.

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

The general elootions wore held throughout the colony on 'Wednesday, 20fch April. The proceedings, both in town and oountiy, were conducted in a spirit of lameness worthy of a municipal contest or a plebiscite to decide upon the site for a town pump. The Trades Hall pooplo were at one period of the campaign supposed to bo masters of the situation, and the speeches of their champions bore the reflex tone of the Jacobin clubs prior to the French revolution. Mutatus mutandis. New South 'Wales, South Australia and New Zealand had been in a Beuse captured by the labor party, and democratic Victoria, everyone seemed convinced, must fall an easy prey to the ascendancy of the working man. The apprehensions inspired by suck a possible contingency gave some spas modic life to the contest, and many who under other circumstances would not have troubled themselves to attend the polling boothstook an active and exceedingly lively interest in the out come of the elections. It was sotnebow felt tha...

FASHIONABLE STYLES OF HAIRDRESSING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

FASHIONABLE STYLES OF HAIR DRESSING. Hairdrossing, when carried to the extreme point of the present fashion, is vory startling and begins to rival tho hideous ohignon of by gone years. It seems to be the opinion of some that the more they can fria and. tease out their hair the more stylish it 1 oks, and in course of time their efforts are rewarded by a ohevclurc which bears a stronger resem blance to a tangled mass of cocoanut fibre than to anything else. It in quite deplorable that so many seem to be possessed by a mania to change the color of their hair. Not satisfied with the tint given to them by nature, and con sequontly best suited in every way to their- complexion, they must needs invoke the aid of dyes, and unblusliingly appoar with locks of quite different coloring to those whioh have bcou accustomed to crown their heads. There is a hideous hue which can only bo likened to poached eggs, and which proclaims itself to bo the result of art wherovor seon, and if dark people' in...

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. The financial year terminated on the 31st March, and a very substantial surplus will be the remit of the year's trans actions. The Colonial Treasurer is highly delighted with the opportunity which will be afforded him of presenting snoh a gratifying budget to Parliament, and the taxpayers are' equally jubilant at the prospect of no additional taxation and the possibility of. an ' easing off ' in some directions. It will ? be the neces saries of life which will be first considered in nny proposals* for reduction, and here . the Colonial Treasurer will have another popular trump card to play. Fortune has continued to smile upon the Ballance . Administration since the day it oame into office upon a tidal wave of publio opinion, nhd every thing seems tci turn out so much in their favor that it is difficult to conceive any eventuality that will cause them to let go the firm clntoh of the Treasury benches whioh they now have.

Two human skeletons have, been found on Gem Island, in the Abrolhos. in a good state of preservation. It is supposed that they are the remains of member* of tho Pelsnrfc expedition to that. Island early in the sixteenth century. While searching for moa bones on Mr. W. Meek's property, near Onmarn, Mr. Jacob Flett discovered a number of human bones, including the. skull. The bones were found under a shelving rock, and are supposed to bo those of a Maori.

WIT AND HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 May 1892

WIT AND HUMOR. No man can cultivate an optimistic mind on a pessimistic stomach. There is many a silent, throbbing corn be- neath a nice dress boot. Paradoxical. — The miner's hope is at its height when he finds that "all is ore." The excesses of youth are draughts upon old age, payable, with interest, about 30 years after date. "Does your wife always get the last word?" "No; she hasn't any last word. She never stops." There is more joy than sorrow in the world, for man smiles a thousand times where he weeps once. A Guowincj Boy — 'Baby growing right alung?' ' 'Oh, yes. I think he will catch up with his voice in u year or so.' The man who says he is ' going to got them, and don't you forgot it,' makes more noise about it than the man who is actually there. Didn't Know Columbus. — ' What happened 400 years ago this year ?' asked Freddie's teacher. 'Don't know,' answered Freddie j ' I'm only 7 yours old.' No Go. — ' la it yos or no ?' ho asked.

CHILDREN'S DRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1892

CHILDREN'S DRESSES. We are constantly meeting with inquiries after .novelties in the style of children's dress, and though the plain, full, gatherod frock has been in vogue for so long that a change of mode would be a relief to the eye, it could hardly fail to bring with it an -increase of work to' many a hart] working mother whose labors with the needle aro so sensibly reduced by the simple and easily mado fashion which has reigned so long in tho domain of frocks for girls of all ngos. These frocks are beginning to show signs of alteration, though so far all that are new are but variations or modifications of the simple smock and the full, skirt with gathered bodice. No radical change of make has as yet been ' effected, although the appearance of many little girls' frocks is materially altered by innovations in tho shape of the yoke or the introduction of a plain breadth extending to the bottom of tho skirt, and apparently of one piece, with tho yoko of contrasting material.

THE MURRAY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1892

THE MURRAY RIVER. Tho value of tho River Murray is only begin ning to bo recognised. As an artery of inland navigation it is unrivalled, but with the excep tion of intermittent spasms of energy on tho part of Victoria in tho removal of snngs, art has done nothing to improve nature. Yet there is ample scope for tlio useful exorcise of .engineer ing skill, and tlio time will come whon not tho Murray only, but some of its principal tribu tarios, such as tho Darling and Murrumbidgee, will by a process of locking and the dredging away of nand banks bo made available for navigation irrespective of season. Only within tho last docado has anything boon done beyond the oxoroiso of individual effort to turn its water.s to account for tho purposes of irrigation. For years the rivor has been pouring its stream into tho ocean without any attempt to tap the fertilising sources of production contained with in its bosom. Mildura and Ronmark are but pioneers of other settlements yet to bo estab lish...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1892

The weather has been very changeable, nnd occasionally very violent, during tho past month. In the first week a large area of the northern and midland districts was visited by a violent thunderstorm, which caused some loss of life. It was accompanied by extremely heavy rainc, which caused damage in various places. It was specially heavy in East Gippslnnd, where, in tho M'Culloch district, it is reported that a deptli of 9 inches fell in ono day. A cyclone of un usual severity was exporiencod on the Tambo 'Valley-road, botweon Bruthcn nnd Omeo ; many trees woro uprooted, and some wero carried hun dreds of yards away. The country in its course was left bare, and tho live* of teamster* passing wore endangered. The rain, however, had tho beneficial effect of thoroughly moistening the land and enabling farmers to plough and sow, oporations which have since boon carried on energetically throughout tho colony. As an evidence of the extreme drought previously ex perienced, a number of cattl...

THE LADIES COLUMN. WINTER JACKETS AND MANTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1892

THE LADIES' COLUMN. WINTER JACKETS AND MANTLES. With the marked changes of stylo that has taken place in these garments lias come their promotion in the wardrobe. The importuned of them has grown with their dimensions, and the choice of the jacket in now a matter of almost as much moment us that of the gown. Indeed, the former is even more in evidence than the latter garment, which is almost wholly con cealed under the longest of tins season's jackets. The length that will be' most usually adopted, however, as far as can be judged from observa tion and examination of imported models, will reach about half way to the knees of the wearer. Jackets of this length, fitting to the figure, and either buttoning straight down, or ' double breasted, and buttoning over to the left, seem to be, so far, first favorites. This stylo has been produced' for English wear in a rough hairy fur, called hare seal, with very taking effects. It may be .predicted, though, that very few will be found out her...
