CHIT CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 25 August 1888

CRIT CHAT. There is nothing so mnuh worn at the presert moment for bridesmaide as cream or pure white, and Pongee silk or some soft woollen stuff trimmed with swanedown would be fashionable. The dresses can be ma-o without any trimming at all, being simply but fully draped ; pink waistooats of a delicate light tone look well with the cr-am Pongee silk, and long Incroyable waistcoats of pompadour brocadealo nome times introduced. The hats should be large and plcturesque. The newest way of arranging sashes is to allow them to start from bows on the shoulders, tapering in a V form to the waist, then widening out again on either side of the skirt, the ribbon turning up again to the waist at the back, where it ends in long distinct ends. Sometimes they are cardied up to the shoulder in the namo V shape. Ribbon is much worn on evening dresses, and perhaps the newest way of employing it is in long stripes on tulle foundation, no that the dress or skirt seems to be entirely composed of it. ...

NEW MILLINERY AND GOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 25 August 1888

NEW MILLINERY AND GOWNS. Although wintry weather is still with us.] displays of spring millinery and gowns are being held by many of the leading drapers, and we may gain some ideas as to what will t be worn during the coming season by noting the chief features of those fashion shows. A charming display of spring millinery and gowns has just been held. The bonnets of this year are slightly lower in the crown than those of last season, and are certainly larger. Those "airy nothinge" of tullo or not-mere apologies for head.gear-that were so popular last year, have not made their appearance. The combloation of black and white, so much in favour just now, was shown in several pretty bonnets, notably in one In which the white crown was covered with black jetted set and the trimming consisted of an aigrette of white marabouts and white ribbon loops, the lining being of black velvet and the long strings of white ribbon. The liking for gold was shown in several bonnets. A very pretty one was...

A PROLONGED EXISTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 25 August 1888

A PROLONGED EXISTENCE. DEATH was not men'a inheritance, but life I Earth was intended for a paradise of blies. Unfading beauty, and eternal spring, Tall sin invited dire disease into the world. "No nation can be truly.great unless its people be healthy and happy, both socially and morally," remarks a modern writer; and similar sentiments have been expressed by the philosophers of all ager, even if we turn back to the most ancient people. " A sound mind can but dwell in a sound body," said the ancient Romoan. To be successful in life men mast purify their system before the mind can have its action in motion, and rise equal to the battle of life. The fervid preacherof the Gospel, the eloquent advocate of liberty, the mariner exposed to the storm, the mechanic bent double in his workshop, all are liable to invasion of disease. Were ready means taken to re-invigorate the system whenever its powers are felt to be on the decline, disease could not invade the citadel of life. Yet often, wh...

A HERO OF THE GREAT WAR. (By LIEUTENANT Low, in "Young England.") There is still living among us a gallant sailor who participated in one of the mot memorable frigate actions of modern times- an action honouable to the British navy and creditable to thoe noble orew that achieved vicer:ry. I refer to the viotory of th- British frigate Shannon (Captain Philip Brooke) over the United States frigate Chesapeake. 'Though this memorablo event took place so long ago as the let of June, 1813, some seventyfive years ago, yet the firat lieutenant of the Shannon, Admiral of the o10ot Sir Provo Wallis, G.O.B., s still enur viving, at the patriarchal but hale old age of naneoy-seven. The lst of June is a glorious anniversary in our naval history, for on that day, nineteen years before, Lord Howe, with twenty six sail of the line and seven frigates,. defeated the -French Admiral. M. do Villarel Joyeuse, in a memorable engagement, and the event .is always known as 'the glolious 1st of June.' It was...

DEATH OF ' QUEEN' ESTHER. Considerable sensation has been caused at Chatham by the dearn of Mrs Esther: Jezreel, the leader of the New and Latter House of Israel, which occurred at her seat, tee Woodlands, on Saturday,. 30th Jiune. The deceased was known to her followers as ' Queen Esther the Virgin, the Mother of Israel,' and they were taught to believe that the was 'The Woman' who, 'broom in hand, had been placed to sweeop the house (or body) in tearoh of the piece which the. firet woman lost, and whiobh the last Eve shall now find'-Mrs Jezreel being the last Eve. .'
