It was my grandfather's' wish, and that was I ever law to my mother, who was a tihnorous body, add stood in great awe of her husband's family. I wore a new silk gown, and we drove away from St. Just in a chariot and pair, my mother and I, while my father rode at our side for company.

BUGLE CALLS. WHAT THEY MEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
BUGLE CALLS. WHIIAT THEY MEAN. .. Fliom early morn till late in the day military bugle calls awaketi the echoes around Flemington. For ordinary camp work few bugle calls are wanted, but the men have to be given a know ledge of those that are all important When in the field, under fire, when promptitude is everything. It is not generally known that for each bugle call words have been adopted which, facilitate a knowledge of the calls. For instance, when the command is given to "Retire," the bugle may be heard al most saying "Right-about, right-about, right-about." rWhen the order to "Ad vance" is given it sounds like Oh, come along, Oh, come a-long, Oh come, oh come, oh come a-long; Come, come, come! For the order "Close" the words may be given something like this: Close in. Get your men in, Get your men in. Get 'emn in n-o-w! The alarm or "Look-out for cavalry" is a very.sharp shrill note, which makes the soldier inaction prick his ears and keep his eyes in, front of him. This is wh...

SHREDS AND PATCHES. BY ARGUS. "It's an ill wind that blows no one good." The tourist postage plasters were issue about a week before Christ mas, and they take an awful lot of lick ing. I am credibly informed that such a general thirsthas set in,that according to the books of various establishments, the sale of aerated waters and ale for the week ending December :30 is far in excess of any week in November or the earlier months. They were talking about the war, the Tasmanian contingent, and everything connected therewith, when one said "I say, Bill, did you see that par in the papers about the, number of bullets fired by the Germans in the Franco-German war to every man killed or wounded?" "No, how many was there?" Why, 1240." "Great Scott, and they wouldn't take me because I wasn't a good enough marksman! If I couldn'.t bring down .a Boer in half that number of goes, why I'd eat him! Jerusalem, and yet they brag about the Germans being good soldiers!" The Boer sense of the ridiculou...

WAR ITEMS. LORD ME'THIEN'S FOUR BATTLES. LETTER FROM ONE OF THE WOUNDED. GRAPHIC NARRATIVE. A very interesting letter has been re-. ceived from Private F. W. Stakes, for merly of Essendon, who was severely wounded at the Modder River engage ment, in which he fought with the 2nd Yorkshire Light Infantry. He is now lying in the general hospital at Wynberg, having been shot through both legs. In his communication, addressed to his mother, he says:-"I am thankful to say that, though badly wounded, it is no worse, considering so many poor fellows lost their lives. It is' hard luck, though, after going through three of the hardest fights that are recorded in British history, to get wounded in the fourth. I thought I was going to have 'the pleasure of marching into Kimberley, but I was doomed to dis appointment. One 'bullet went through the calf of my leg; the other struck me behind the knee, and is stuck be hind the bone. I am going under an operation as soon as I am a bit stronger. I do....

Nicolson and D. Taylor. The rabbit inspector's report was read and confirmed, a long discus sion taking place as to whose duty it was to kill the rabbits on the public roads. Mr. r'oster considered it the duty of the Road Trust on all enclosed roads, and Mr. Gibson concurred. A long discussion also took place as to the boundaries of the rabbit district in regard to whether they included the towns. The Warden got the act, but failed to show that it did. Mr. Taylor wanted to see the "Gazette " with a copy of the proclama tion fixing the boundaries of the dis trict, and asked the rabbit inspector, who was present, if he had it. That officer replied in the negative. Mr. Foster considered the towns should be included. On the suggestion of the Warden, the matter was left over until next meet in:...

Warren both deal with the question. Although. these gentlemen view it. from different standpoints, yet they are agreed on several -main features. They have come to the conclusion that the genesis of the -'war lay in the want of firmness displayed by the British; Go vernment in years gone by, and also that there was but one means by which the Boe...

FASHION CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FASHION CHAT. Although there has been very much said in favour of the jacket of a dif ferent colour to the skirt, the idea has not been kindly received with us, and the fawn or check jacket has found few admirers. This is to be wondered at, too, ,as usually an economical fashion is readily accepted, and this is certainly of that order, for, given a I cloth jacket that is not destined; for one skirt, how easily one could, wear t out the different skirts that accumulate in a season or so. Perhaps the idea c will catch on this coming winter sea-I son. It is too dreadful to know that just now our skirts must be six inches or so on the ground--a truly objec tionable fashion for outdloor wear, al though pretty and graceful for visiting? and at home. Six inches of muslin trailing on the ground can work mar vels in gathering up dust, and even microbes, I dadresay, and surely the spirit of clqanliness will appeal to the woman of average, sense to prejudice her against supporting the unwelcom...
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
USEFUL HINTS. A 'simple methodl of removing fruit stains from cotton or linen articles is to place the stained pant over a bowl, and continue .pouring boiling water through until the stain disappears. If this Is Cone as soon as pos sible after the article is stained there will in most cases be no trouble at all in the removal. Tea and coffee taken with a heavy meal will delay digestion and cause wakefulness. It is therefore as well to strictly limit their use with meals. Clean white Suede slippers with equal parts of powdered alum and ful ler's earth. Apply the mixture with a brush, and rub the slippers till clean. Olean white felt hats by brushing over them a paste made of arrowroot or magnesia and cold water. , When thoroughly dry, brush off the powder with a clean brush. Never wash silver- acke:l brushes, for this treatment utterly ruins them. In stead, clean the bristles by rubbing them thoroughly with, flour. The flour may afterwards be shaken out and en tirely removed with, pi...
WOMAN'S WORLD. TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
WOMAN'S WORLD. BY SYLVIA. TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Enquirer."-Muslin dresses are often made with several frills on the skirt, but those of cambric have only a broad hem turned up at the bottom, with some tidies a few rows of narrow braid above. In making the holland dress you will need to allow for shrinkag- in fact, I think it is best to have the whole piece of holland shrunk before it is made up-this would certainly save after trouble. Voile is a fabrlc of light weight and very fine texture, and the only way I can describe it is to say that it is something between lustre of finest quality and nun's veil ing, also of fine texture. Yes, in black and various fashionable tints.

In London medical and hospital circles perhaps no nurse is more widely known and esteemed, for the best part of her 63 years of life has been spent in ob taining a profound experience of her profession. Our representative recently paid. this distinguished visitor a call at 119 George-street. "In this time of war, nurse, special interest attaches to your profession," said the reporter. "Yes," was the dignified reply, "there will be need for many ourses before this war is Over. But I suppose you want some particulars of my own life?" continued Nurse Scott. "Yes. Our 'renders are interested in you." "Well, I have naturally nursed many hundreds of patients, at times over taxing my.strength. In fact, three years ago I was attacked by perltonitis, the after-effects of which were so severe that I had to t...
