WASP WAISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 21 January 1870

WASP WAISTS. S?i Unfortunately the vile habilt' of tight rlacing is "coming into fashion" again. No sooner is one folly doomed than another rises to take its place. The mass of hair (generally living) stuck on top of the female head divine is giving way to the wasp waist, and 'the " girls anr.d matrons of the period'' are doing their best, assisted by the dress maker, to make themselves look aamuchlike an ill-filled tightly-tied sausage as pbssible. We admit at once that the " swell of the period" is a fop and all that, but he is gil ded by something-like theory" in, the out of coat, and the make of his-ahems; whereas the common run of the other soz alter their dross only with a view to be 'dressed like everybody else, and' "acoordmg to the fashion" plates dr Lw. by French artists, who taks -the. most jirominent members of the demwi wnowrlo"fur their models..

or1 I d' ati fIerai l . Camping for a night on the banks of. the Goulburn is a pleasant change on the usual course of getting into' bed. between shl?eft and other inventions of civilisation. A, least that was the conclusion arrived at by a few friends of ours who took fishing tackle, blankets, cooking apparatus, and a drop of .the "_crathur" to spend a night. lear .the Acheron Junctiorn. Having .landed on the ground about 3 .p.m., the party divided into. a, fishing and shooting expedition. Shortly after sundown, the psrty reassembled, bring-. ing a ,pair of ducks and about 14 lb of small cod, from 1 lb . do.w;nwnrds.
