STANLEY WEYMAN'S NEW BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
STANLEY WEYMAN'S NEW BOOK. Mr. Stanley Weyraau has not yet exhausted that rioli vein of historical romance which yielded 'A Gentleman of France' and other, delightful stories of French society in the 16th and 17th centuries. His new book, which we have received from Messrs. E. S. Wigg_ and Son, is a collection of episodes from the life of Henry IV. 's renowned Minister the Duke of Rosnv, better known to the world in geueral as the Due do Sully, in which the Minister who is supposed to relate them is sometimes prime mover and sometimes an interested spectator. They range from grave to gay, from love making to attempted assassination. Several relate to attempts upon the life of Henry of Navarre , and their frustration by Sully ; for , example that planned under the direction pf soma j powerful personages by a cunning Spaniard, ',- who, purposed killing the King by meftnB -of .4 poisoned plaster, and was caught by-Sully:«i his j own snare.

MISS ETHEL TURNER'S LATEST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
MISS ETHEL TURNER'S LATEST STORY. It is safe to predict that Miss Ethel Turner, the author of 'Seven Little Australians,' will increase her already large circle of admirers by her latest work entitled 'Tho Story of a Baby,' forming No. 1 of Ward, Lock, and Bowden'ij pretty Nautilus series. The career of a baby scarcely affords material for a story of any length, and it would seem that tlio author must soon bring her tale to a close from mere exhaustion. But Miss Turner overcomes the difficulty by taking^ in' the parents as well, and a large part of ..'The Story of a Baby' has reference to the quarrels' and reconciliations of a young couple which.' would eeem to arise not eo much from incom- ? patibility of temper as from the circumstances of their environment. The baby gets involved in his parent3* misunderstandings, and we shall spoil the reader's interest by' disclosing the denouci'icnt. The tale is brightly written and abounds in humorous passages. ' The scene is laid in Sydney, ...

gkbkff (foltnnu. LONDON FASHIONS AND FRIVOLITIES. 'A.H.,' writing in the London Queen of September 22, says: — History repeats itself. The holidays are nearly over, and the first thoughts of many women on the homeward journey turn to wards a new bonnet or its equivalents, a toque Or hat. Indeed, mo3t of the newest headgears are toques. Figs. 1, 2, and 3 are the results of a visit to Paris on the part of one of our lead ing wholesale houses.

NEW STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
NEW STORIES. Two new volumes of the Acme Pocket Library have reached us from the publishers, Messrs. A. Constable & Co. Mrs. Walford, the well-known- author of 'Mr. Smith,' ac quit« herself with credit in the narrower limits of 'A' Bubble.' An Acme volume necessi tates brevity, and Mrs. Walford tells her story of the disappointment in love of her hero, a young Scotch student — who is rejected in favor of a lord— without any digression and with considerable spirit, though the con cession to popular prejudice in favor of a '6ad ending' is one that might have been avoided. The Marquis of Lome cannot be credited with the same directness of method in his story 'From Shadow to Sunlight,' which is almost destitute of plot, and would be a poor effort but for the very digressiveness that makes it a bad novel. Lord Lome is an experienced traveller and a thoughtful observer, and has no difficulty in beguiling his leader into a study of Highland scenery, the quality of the Chinese theat...
ON FEMININE CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
02V FEMININE CYCLING. At the annual public meeting of tho Aus tralian Health Society held in Melbourne recently Dr. Springthorpe delivered a lee turette entitled 'Cycling as an exercise,' coming to the conclusion that there was no reason why a healthy woman should not cycle under certain conditions. If strain and exces sive riding were avoided the exercise was both safe and healthful and many a woman was benefited by it to a considerable extent To the consumptive or anaemic the advantage derived from the use of the cycle was incal culable. His Excellency Sir John Madden remarked that he was not yet entirely converted to a belief in the bicycle as a means of grati fication and benefit to woman. All could speak with the greatest confidence on sub jects of whioh they knew nothing and he there fore had no hesitation in discussing cycling. He was not yet a cyclist, he had given up dancing years ago owing to his ever increasing avoir dupois, and he feared that on a bicycle he would only p...
THE ART OF DINING. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
THE ART OF DINING. A dinner should be as long as the guests find it pleasant, and a trifle shorter, writes Trvili. Old society-rounders will tell you of prolonged feasts of twenty-five years asro lasting three and a half hours, where, after the first hour and a half, the one and only wish and idea of each and every diner, guest and host alike, was to get away; where conversation droned or died out entirely; where watches were furtively consulted and confidences ex changed: as to ever being caught again. And still the solemn-faced attendants went on and on, exchanging the piates and serving the wines until tired nature's sweet restorer seemed to hover over the table. In contrast — pleasing _ contrast — to this is tho small and short dinner of the present day of not more than five or six courses ' from start to finish,' a few whiffs of tobacco for the men, a look in at the drawing-room, and by 10 o'clock freedom, an unclouded brain, an in offensive digestion, an opportunity for a chan...
THE ART OF LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
THE ART OF LAUGHING. There are few of women's minor attractions which give greater pleasure than a really agree able laugh. It will therefore (says the London Globe) be a relief to members of the fair sex unblessed with the commodity in question to learn that with patience, perseverance, and the outlay of a certain amount of money, the art can be acquired to perfection. For tho secret we are indebted to the candid confes sion of an American 'society girl,' as re ported by the Mew York Times. It appears ibat ibis young lady, one of whoso attractions *-:.

WOMEN IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
WOMEN IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. Women will no longer compete with men on unfair terms and undersell them in the labor market (writes Florence Balgarnie in Great Tltoughts). Capacity, not sex, will be the standard for remuneration. Hence, if a women consent to surrender her economic indepen dence in order to become a wife and mother her husband will, as a matter of course, con sider her as liis partner, entitled to an equal share in the disposal of the family income. lhe economic independence of women will ensure 'wider opportunities in life. Girls will, like their brothers, look forward to a career. Some will find it in business, others in law, literature, art, the pulpit, in local governing bodies, and in the House of Commons. All adult women, as well as all adult men, will have the Parliamentary vote. Marriage will no more disqualify a woman than a man from the rights of citizen ship. While all human beings will have equal opportunity for exercising public functions, men will prob...

' already so favorably known by his work, if nob . by his name, to readers of the Sydney Bulletin, '. in which several of these efforts originally appeared, aud other colonial journals. A sloub prose preface is supplied by Rolf Boldre wood. who sn,vs fchasa verses ar« the heat of their kind which have appeared since the death of Lindsay Gordon. The reader will have no hesitation in endorsing that verdict, which is not to say that there is anything here equal to Gordon at his best. ' Old Pardon, the son of Reprieve, ' would have been more striking if 'How we beat the favorite' had not been written. Perhaps the most characteristic piece is that from which the volume takes its title. ' It^ might have been branded ' For recitation.' We are carried on in rough, swift, vigorous lines which tell of tho surprising feat of h...

ARMENIAN TROUBLES. LONDON, October 30. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
ARMENIAN TROUBLES. London, October 30. A serious revolt has occurred in the Leuoun district of Asiatic Turkey, and 26,000 Armenians are reported to be under arms. London, October 31. The Vienna correspondent of the London Times states that the Sultan of Turkey has expressed himself convinced that the other Euronean Powers are trying to isolate Great Britain in connection with the scheme for the better government of Armenia. The hostility displayed towards Great Britain by the official press both in France and Russia, it is asserted, plainly indicates that both those nations are practically ceasing to co-operate with Great Britain with regard to the Armenian question. Germany, it is further affirmed, has displayed no interest in the question, and is pursuing a policy of inaction so far as the government of Armenia ie concerned.
