Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 13 May 1898

Meuta."] Dressmakers seem to have come to a stunt-still in the way of new inventions. So many freeh modes have crowded in, and fashions come with such a riuh at the turn of the season that after the first whirl is over there is a paucity of ideas, and dresses become more alike; every where you go now you see the same style, 9 For evening wear lace' and sequins and jewels predominate ; for outdoor the Russian blouse or coai, with fairly long, skirts, holds s'-vav. We are promised an innovation, however, in the displacement of the corset Maud Jefferies, Wilson-Barret's lead ing lady, seems to have given the idea impetus among the more emanci pated of our sex. When you walk into a drawing-room now there are always two or three ladies present who, without the asking, reveal the fact that they don't wear corsets, I think it is one of the best things that could happen women if tbey could be brought to abandon stays, but the transformation must be done with care. There are very few women w...

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) In mining centres things are now looking a little better. Pepper is paddling night and day so to speak. The new pump is acting splendidly. There seems to be a good supply of water in the water abaft. Although the pump is working daily the wafcer gets no lower. Ferguson and Kelly have washed 88 loads last week, but it did not come up to expectations. Payton and party have washed 84 loads and it went fairly well. Prior and Sons are carting this afternoon. They have about 100 loads to wash and expect it to turn out well. Phillips and party come next and it will take some time before their's is all washed up. On Thursday, there was a nice fall of rain. It continued all day and it will do the farmers and squatters some good but it has left no water for puddling. This morning there was a Bbarp frost.

WELLINGTON. A great deal ol sickness prevails in the district, chiefly pleurisy and in fluenza, but there has only been one fatal case reported up to the present. The rain which fell last week has made a wonderful difference in the look of the district already. The farmsrs are all hard at work plough ing. A nasty accident happened to two sons of Mrs. Chrystal last week. They commenced skinning sheep, and after a day a prickly feeling came in their arms, which on being investi gated by Dr, Linton, was found to be serious. They were driven to Dubbo by Mr Gaden, where they were attended by Dr. Du Moulin, who, after administering chloroform, cut pieces out of the arm which were like Cumberland disease. Both patients are now getting on as well as can be expected#
