Enterprising Tradesmen. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 30 March 1889
Enterprising Tradesmen. Curious efforts have occasionally been made by enterprising tradesmen to attract public attention to their wares. Not long ago a dozen girls attired in pretty blue drosses and attractive hats marched through the principal cities of the kingdom. They wero of prepos sessing appearance, and their facial charms wore enhanced by long, beauti ful tresses of hair that swept in profu sion over their shoulders. Thov wnlked along tho thoroughfares, smiling pleas antly at the. onlookers, and dropping tinted leaflets into their hands. Many of the spectators concluded that tho procession was theoiiteonioofa feminine wager, others believed it was under taken in the cause of charity, until the mysterious leaflets wero perused, when it was discovered that the owners of the flowing locks wore walking advertise ments of a luxuriant hair producer ! The ingenuity of Parisian tradesmen sometimes results in a new mode of ad vertising. Sandwich men have become so intolloiablo on th...

Girls at Work. IN OTHER LANDS. Tin-: theory that girls exist merely as lay figures to display fine drapery and look pretty is not entertained among half-civilized or savage tribes and nations. Tho eccentric notion still pre vails thoughout Asia, Africa, and in some parts of Europe and America, that they are born to labour. In Turkestan and on the Tartar steppes tho Kirgheso sultanas and there daughters, and princesses in whoso veins flows the blood of long linos of kings, still milk tho sheep, cows, and goats, and perform tho menial offices of tho household as the Sanscrit maidens did 6,000 years agoin the samelocalities.

Nothing of the kind was dono ; tho vines were simply tinkered with, and tho phylloxora was, and is still, permitted to seek 'fresh fields and pastures new.'
