Sporting Item. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
Spirting item. (By Djjadd.v.) Local sporLs are beginning to ask — ' Are we to have a September meeting this year?' The answer should be in the affirmative considering the number of horses in work iu the di-trict, These off meetings as a rule pay the organisers even better than the larger events, and the opportunity should uot be mussed.

A 'FIVE O'CLOCK TEA' CLOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
A 'FIVE O'CLOCK TEA' CLOTH. A most novel and effective ' five o'clock tea ' cloth can be made out of four pocket handkerchiefs — large Bize — and: some torchonf lace. In this way: Lay two handkerchiefs side by side (spread out to, their full size), and thn other two Jjelow them, each handkerchiof being separated' by the width of about two or three inches. Unite the handkerchiefs by means ofr torchon insertion, two or three inches wide, the two bands of insertion forming, as it were, a cross. Frill the little ' cloth' all round with torchon lace, and you have a quickly made and pretty tea-spread; The handkerchiefe should have wide hems, and may, if taste so inclines, be decorated with initials or a mono; ram in the corners. This little tea-oloth suggests . a simple but uaefnl gift to a bride. '
INEXPENSIVE GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
INEXPENSIVE GLOVES. Cheap gloves do not, as a rule, wear well, but most people find it an economy to buy two or three pairs of cheap, wash able gloves for snmmer wear. ThiB season gloves for less than a shilling a pair present a really wonderful imitation of suede, and are more cool wearing than kid. Many of them are lined with some pretty bright colours, and slip on the hands easily. Among inexpensive varie ties cf glovee are those of a laccy pattern, which are exceptionally) cool and light. Glove buttons are for the moBtpart of. pearl and tolerably large thiB season. Cyclists' gloves are, as usual, perforated; For the ordinary walking glove a four button length iB correct. Even for oven, ing wear plovos are frequently shortt since many low-necked gowns are pos sessed of long close-fitting sleeves of lace CHILDREN'S FASHIONS. A new note has been rung in children's millinery this season, the novelty con sisting of largo shady hats of thin glossy straw, threaded through with scars of...
SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
SOCIETY. ' Ono of the most curious outcomes of American traditions and inherited in dependence is the way young women who pre in the same social cet are, to use a Homely expression, brought lip/ said a matron to a writer tor the New York Tribune. 'In no country 'in the world is such a wide divergence practised, or in deed, would be permitted, as is Been here in what is called the better class. In England or France there iB one law for all. A young girl whose people arc in society must be strictly shielded from contact with the outside world, but in America it seems to depend altogether upon the wealth, convenience or the individual opinion of .her parents. 'Very rich people. o£: social position adopt, as a rule, the transatlantic ideas about theic daughters. A maid must invariably attend lier young mistress on hor (shopping expeditions and her walks.

GREAT EATER DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
GREAT EATER DEAD. Belgium mourns, for the champion eater of tho country iB dead. Ah extraordinary man he was. One day he entered into an agreement with a hotelkeeper, according to which he promised to pay a fixed sum for a dinner, but stipulated that he was to have all the food he wanted. The sum fixed was email, and great, therefore, was the disgust of the hotel lroanar ha -4- *1. ~ the dinner that his guest had eaten two stewed rabbits and whole calf's head. On another occasion he ate for a wager twelve yards of sausages and black pud ding. He recently accepted a challenge to eat seventy hard-boiled eggs in one hour, and he almost accompliihed this feat, since he devoured sixty-nine in the specified time, The fact that he lost the wager, how ever, and through one egg, preyed on his mind and he became sick. Doctors were summoned and said that he was suffering from indigestion, but his friends say that it was nothing but worry over this one egg which made him sick and which fin ally...
INDIAN CONJUROR'S TRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
INDIAN CONJUROR'S TRICKS. The conjuror threw a woman, almoBt nude, into a kind of cataleptic state of rigidity. Four of the officers' Bwords were then fixed, points upward) in the ground. The woman was laid with her elbows on two sword points, her heels on the other two. Three swords were then removed, and she lay horizontal and ngid, supported by one elbow, on one sword point. My friend and a surgeon of the regiment examined her fcarefully, feeling all around the body, bnt they could discover no supports, says Andrew Lang, in Longman's Magazine. The Empercr Jehanjrir is not the only recorder of the rope trick ; an eye-witness of the thirteenth century doBcribes it in Col. Yule's ' Marce Polo.' But he admits that a friend standing beside him saw no rope, and no man olimbing in; so, probably this Arab observer was hypnotised as Kira, in Mr. Kipling's book, was not, when he was told to see the breken vase made whole. Bat it needed all of Kim's resolution not to see what he was told to...

POETRY A MORNING PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902
POErrRY A MORNING PEAYEE. Let me to-day do something that Bhall take A little sadness from the world's vast store,. i And may I be eo favored as to make Of iov'e too scanty sum a littla more. Let me not hurt, by any selfish deed Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend ; Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need, Or sin by silence when I Bhould defend. However meagre be my worldly wealth. Let me give something that should aid my kind. A word of courage, or a thought of health, Dropped as I pass for troubled hearts to Lat me to-night look back across the span. 'Twixt dawn and dark, and'to my con science say — Because of some good act to beast or man — ' The world is better that I lived to-day.' — Ella. 'Wheeler Wilcox.

Been now in the full blaze of the gaB , she seemed to him ever lovelier than he had imagined from thoso unsatisfying glimpses in the shadowy owl's light that suggested beauties and might have con cealed defects.
