The Instinct of Dress. HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

Tlie Instinct of Dress. : HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. When one of " Ouida s" miraculous great ladies, who trail uid laces on their balay eUBes, and quote polyglot scraps about must things under heaven, says that, even if she were poor, and reduced to wearing: dimity »nd serge, she would still have her garments fashioned so that G-iorgione or Gainsborough might delight in her, she speaks with sound and good sense; and yet there are mauy reasons which prevent women with slendr.r purees from following out her idea. Even when they have a taste so uerfect that, given money and time, they might eclipse mosi women in the grace aud harmony and rich ness of their raiment, the res angusia domi mean being careful and cumbered over many things. If . a woman works for her living she is likely, at the present rate of pressure aud struggle, to be too weaiy to pay more than a fitful and careless attention, to dress; and the careful consideration of harmony and of the suitableness of one garment to another...

The Dress of Men and Women. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

The Oress of Men and Women. It is singular to contrast the growing splendor ana prodigality of the dt ess of one sex ia the Niiieiecnfli century with the sobriety of }he dress of the other sex, which has shrank within our own recollection into a grim uniformity of black kerseymere. TLu laws «t nature are reversed, if it be true, as Mr. Darwin teaches, that the male bird owes the hues of his plumage and the beauty of his form to his desire to please the hens and obtain the honor of natural selection. In modern society it is the hens who carry the gay feathers. Shall we say with the same motives and with equal success ? There was a time when the dress of men was alike wasteful, extravagant and inexpedient; when they wore costly stuffs, rich embroidery, lace, jewels ; when at the Court of France the Duke of Buckingham shook off diamonds, anu the maids of honor went on their knees to pick them up and appropriate ihern; when the folds of a cravat an<l the embroidery ot a waist...

Carter Harrison Describes the Women of Burmah. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

Carter Harrison Describes the Women of Bur mail. She is not bidden, as inmost Oriental lands. She goes about town, rules her husband and the household, drives the best bargains when selling the produce of her fields, wears c.f evenings, or when visiting religious places, gay colored silt * tameius' generally of some shade of red-and has a scarf of blight, yellow figured silk over her shoulders; dresses her coal-olack hair in most becoming style, rarely failing to have a pretty sprig of flowers in her chignon; covers her arms and fingers with bracelets and rings, encircles her anules with silver anklets, and fills her ears with gold and jewels. When a number of them are together they make a gay and pretty picture. The colors used by a single individual do not seem to harmonise, but when several are in a group they make a most harmonic us whole. The women are far from being ill-looking, and many are not only pretty but reaily ocautiful. They do not lade and grow old as in Japan and Si...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Water at Meals. WHAT A MEDICAL AUTHORITY HAS TO SAT ON A DISPUTED POINT OF HYGIENE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

POPULAR SCSEfvDe.' Water at Urals. WHAT A MEDICAL ATTTHOBITT HAS TO SAT ON A DISPUTED POINT OF HYGIENE. Opinions differ as to the effect of the free ingestion of water at meal times, bnt the view most generally received is probably that it dilutes the gastric juice, and su retards digestion, says The British Medical Journal. Apart from the fa^t that a moderate delay in the process is by no means a dis advantage, as Sir William R berts ha Bhowii in his explanation of the popularity of tea and coffee, it is mora than doubtfui ?whether any nuch effect is in reality pro duced. When in^sted during- meals, water may do good by wa^hiug out the digesteo foud and by exposing tlie undigested pait more thoroughly to the action of the diges tive ferments. Pepsin is a catalyptic body, and a given quantity will -work almost in definitely, provided pepstones are removed as they are formed. The good effects of -water, drunk freely before meals, has, how ever, another beneficial result-it washes awa...

Freaks of the Little God. STORIES OF THOSE WHO MET BY CHANCE AND MADE LIFE PARTNERSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

Freaks of the Little God. 8T0BEES OF THOSE WHO MET BY CHANCE AND MADE HFE PARTNEBSHIPS. Marriages are often the result of accident. It eeema strange, but the must prudent per sons will sometimes conceive an. irresistiole attachment at the suggestion of a word, or look. When ouce under the spell of the ?verb *' to love" they go through nil the forms and finish the conjugation of the verb before the niter. Tie tew may give fctie subject the consideration ic deserves, but tae inauy, there is fear, are guided by impulse. A skipper of a cuosting vessel called at the village inn and asked the landlady, &:xt young wido *': ' Do y<>u itnoa' where I can get a mate ? I iiave lose my ajate.' .Iam sorry for you, Mr. she said. " I want a mate, too, and cannot get one; I'll do; if you'll be mine, 111 be yours.'

Amongst them we have several who are old campaigners and whose past actions form a part of the Colony's history during recent years. These men stand before us with all their sins of omission and commission clearly de fined-for a record of their doings we can turn to the dry, matter of fact pages of Hansard. On the other hand we have a number of new men, prac tical farmers, shrewd men of business and others who are enthusiastic in the promulgation of new schemes for the prosperity of the Colony. They, un like the former class, have no political sins to a...

ORROROO, May 17. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 18 May 1888

OJttJROBOO. May 17. A football match between the Quorn and the local clubs, was played h«?e on Saturday last. The weather could hardly have bneu moreunpropitious, a heavy wind accompanied by occasional blinding Bhowers of rain, prev ailing during the aont«at, The match resulted in a win for the Quoraitea who secured two goals and seven beninde to Orroroo's 1 goal and 3 behinds. The game, with one or two exceptions, was eonduo&ed without those ebullitions of ill feeling which are so often manifested in these contests':'-J1 be players who most distinguished themselves in the Quorn club were Messrs Hayman, Horan, and Messeeke, whilst the local celebrities were Messrs Dunn, Degenhardt, Fels, Hehder. and Williams. Mr A. P. Yeatea made a very proficient field umpire. Within the past few days we have had some splendid steady showers of rain totall ing about 600 points. This will partially allay the feelujg of uneasiness which prevailed amongst farmers and trades people as to the ag...

Correspondence. [We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents.-ED.] THE PETERSBURG- RACE CLUB AND THE PUBLICAN'S BOOTH. TO THE EDITOR. 8ir,-I should, like through your columns to draw attention to the extremely unfair manner in which the Petersburg Race Club acted with reference to the publican's booth at the late races. At a meeting of the Committee it was decided to call'tenders for the booth from all publicans in the district there was nothing said at the time as to con fining the tenders to Petersburg. Of the three tenders sent in that of Mr Costello of V ocgala was the highest by abont £5, yet I am told the booth was given to the. jiext highest tenderer, Mr Sheridan, in considera tion of the large amount he bad coUected for the club. Now as the committee were aware of all Mr Sheridan had done at the time of calling tenders, does not this seem like mak- 1 ing catspaws of the other tenderers. Such a course of action is not, I think you will agree with me, STBA...
