A DRESS FOR A WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
A DRESS. FOR A WEDDING. A coat and skirt suit' made for a guest at a recent important wedding in Melbourne, wals shown me, and like the rest of the tailor-mades of this season it took"'more than one glance to discover the fact that it .was a coat and skirt. The material ?was of Dutch blue channelise, and the skirt was so very narrow that not one frill was allowed on tlie under skirt. A specially made petticoat was Avorn with it, as any fullness would have been noticeable on the soft satin. The hobble, by the way, seems to be more pronounced as the days roll on. Although we read in fashion papers. that the hobble skirt lias "gone out," yet it most assuredly is only hearing the zenith of its popularity with us. The dress must be so cut as to show every movement of the wearer. The little coat of this costume was most, delightfully cut, with, of course, the spade -back .that seems indispen sable, while the facings were of rich Flanders- lace, which is all too seldom seen as trimming for...

The cost is very little in excess of bluestone, and though, like blue stone, it may not be guaranteed as absolu...

Free Passes on Railway for Delegates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911
Passes on Railway for Delegates. '2 :S>The Minister for Public Works. (Mr. ^Griffith), in reply to a. deputation ; from the Local Government Associa tion last week, agreed witli the sug gestion! that delegates from the coun try to the association's conference should be granted railway passes. "When delegates come on public busi ness," said the Minister, "they should get free passes, both ways, and a sleeping berth as Avell. I regard that as a proper request. Other States liiave granted it, and, after all. it is only a bookkeeping entry. If the Railway Commissioners will not grant you passes, well. I will put a sum of money on the Estimates. I think also it might embrace a pass for a lady, for I think that when a man comes to town from the back coun try once a year or so, it is only right he should take his wife with him."

If the person is a freethinker, or in no denomination or religion, the fact should be stated. \ . If. any person, however, conscien tiously object to state his religious, denomination, the word " object" may &lt; be inserted,'this being the only q...
