Scraps. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 1 May 1889

Straps. General Boulmiger seems to be as popular with the ' classes' as with the ' musses.' The dinner at which the Duchess d'Uzes enter tained him was a noticeable event from this point of view. The./ftie.tfeur of the French aristocracy flocked to the reception which followed it, and they seem to have been all charmed with the irresistible Genei'ul. ' If all Hepublicans -were like you, I am not sure tliat I would not rally to the Republic my self,' one of the staunchest Conservatives is reported to have said to him. ' Tlie Duchess naa aiLacnua a reu carnation in lier corsage ill compliment to1 her distinguished guest, and she hnd even thought of presenting the ladies to him instead of introducing him to them : but the General modestly declined u.n honour which can perfectly well wait till he is ac tually installed in the Elysee.

A Chinese Mandarin on Western Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 1 May 1889

A Chinese Mandarin on Western Women. A travelled Chinese mandarin who hiis lately communicated his impressions of the 'West to his countrymen, deals with great particularity with the position and treatment of women in Europe. These surprise him bovond measure. Thus the notion of hus band anil wife walking avm-in-nvm in public places iills him with amusement, ' Nobody Millies nt it,' he says, 'iind even a husband insxy perform any menial task in his wife:s [iiesence, yet no one wm iaugn at nun. Then, again, the notion of men standing aside to let a woman pass, and tlie code of politeness which requires men to make way t'or a woman, are to Jiini incomprehensible. In Chinn, when the men are gorged, the women dine off the scraps; but in the West 'at mealtimes the men must wait until tlie women .ive seated and theu take one after another their respective places, and the same rule must be observed when the meal is finished.' Western women have curious notions about dress and apppearance. ...
