DISCONTENT OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
DISCONTENT OF WOMEN. A great wave of discontent has of recent years flooded the minds of a large class of women in all civilised countries, sweeping away former traditions. Even the German woman, who to most intellects typifies the mere housewife, is revolting under the tyranny of the kitchen pots, and refuses to be comforted with her knitting. In an age (says the New York "Modern Cul- ture") which sees more women writing than ever before in the history of the world, it is natu- ral that this unrest should find its expression in many of their books.
THE LONG SKIRT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE LONG SKIRT. Americans are trying to get up an agitation against the long skirt. In a New Jersey town it is seriously contemplated to draw up an ordi- nance making it a serious misdemeanor for women to wear skirts touching the pavement. It is freely admitted that iniquitously long dresses are a great cause of contagion, gathering up, as they do, germs of every description, and carrying them into households. But, as every- body knows, they are becoming, or, at least, are considered becoming, and we fear it will take as long to kill the long train as it will to kill the microbe.
FASHIONABLE LACE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
FASHIONABLE LACE. The fashionable lace of the moment is called filet Italiano, which is an open square mesh net, distinguished by a floral or conventional pattern, worked in coarse linen threads, very closely resembling the old-fashioned tambour lace of our grandmothers' days. It is equally attractive in dead white cream tints, and there is also a brownish ecru shade, which looks ex- quisite when used as insertion, with pale blue or creamy white china silk blouses. &nbsp;
A PAYABLE COMBINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A PAYABLE COMBINATION. A Parisian lady doctor of medicine has just had a splendid idea. Her sister, not having gone in for the higher education, set up as a staymaker. Now the two have joined forces, and (says the London "Daily Tele- graph") are amassing a fortune. They have combined different professional ca- pacities in the following manner:—Cus- tomers calling find themselves first ushered into the lady doctor's consulting-room. There they undergo a regular medical examination, they have to answer the usual practitioner's questions, their pulse is felt, their lungs sound- ed, their heart listened to, and so on. The doc- tor then draws up a diagnosis, in other words, an exact description of the kind of corset which the build or state of health of each customer requires that she shall wear. It is even said that the lady physician carries conscientious- ness so far as to forbid in some cases the wear- ing of stays at all. When this dread veto is pronounced, customers are bowed out w...
SILK PURSES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
SILK PURSES. There is quite a rage for the old-fashioned long silk purses knitted and threaded with gold and steel beads. At the big trimming shops, says the "Ladies' Field," they are selling very pretty metal tops and clasps, into which may quickly be sewn a bag of old brocade or satin, worked with a monogram in silk and pearls. Those who possess specimens that belonged to their great-grandmothers, made of satin cov- ered with a knitted network of silk and steel beads, will find such most desirable as models. Old samplers, too, are now being much copied.
SEA-WATER VELVET. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
SEA-WATER VELVET. Deep sea-green is the color of this new velvet, &nbsp; which shades off almost to white; it is marked &nbsp; like water-silk, the wavy lines—which are light &nbsp; or dark, according to their background, the &nbsp; dark ones being on the palest part of the velvet, &nbsp; and vice versa—being here and there dotted &nbsp; with glittering sequins, with the effect of sun- light on the water. Small pieces of this rich velvet do not show it to advantage, as the shading is very gradual, and so it is being used chiefly for whole gowns, trains, and opera cloaks.
THE BLOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE BLOUSE. In Paris the popularity of the blouse is for &nbsp; the moment overshadowed by the short, jaunty &nbsp; coatee which the French call a veste-habit. This &nbsp; is a well-fitting short coat of some rich brocade &nbsp; or velvet, cut away in front, and sloping off into &nbsp; a rounded basque or coat-tails behind. It fas- &nbsp; tens over with two double-breasted revers, &nbsp; and a handsome diamond button on the bust, &nbsp; revealing a lace jabot at the throat, and below, a tight-fitting, straight-fronted, pointed stom- &nbsp; acher of cloth of gold or rich embroidery. Such &nbsp; a coat may be worn in the house with a pale &nbsp; grey or cream cloth skirt, or for theatre or res- &nbsp; taurant wear with a lace or silk skirt, is new &nbsp; and attractive-looking, especially so on a well- &nbsp; rounded figure. &nbsp; &nbsp;
A BENDIGO ARTIST. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A BENDIGO ARTIST. Miss Agnes Noyes Goodsir, a clever Bendigo artist, studying in Paris for the 15 months, is working two studios—the Julian and the Cola- rossi, and is already trying her luck for the Salon with a head. Miss Goodsir painted some capital landscape studies during her holiday in Brittany, and has gained a great deal of praise from the studio masters for her figures and com- position pictures of Lieutenant Victor Gurner, youngest son of the late H. F. Gurner, formerly Attorney-General for Victoria, who holds the appointment of first lieutenant on the armored cruiser Cressy, recently commissioned for the first time, and sent to China. The post is a great advancement to the young Australian, as the Cressy is one of the first of her class. Exercise after a heavy meal is unwise. Those having weak digestions are advised never to walk upstairs immediately after dining, this being one of the most tiring forms of exer- tion. For a burn or scald, a capital home-made ointment cons...
The Fascinations of a Title. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
The Fascinations of a Title. When a well-known American writer recently remarked that their republic was the happy hunt- ing-ground of every beggared prince, duke, earl, or count, who was anxious to exchange title for wealth, he was exaggerating but very little. For it is estimated that something like 200 women born in the land of the Stars and Stripes have, by means of marriage, become entitled to sport a title. In fact, in some cases American women have gone even further, and been wedded to more than one titled aristocrat, having, of course, been legally separated from their first husband. A notable instance of this was the case of Miss Winnaretta Singer, the daughter of the million- aire sewing-machine manufacturer of that name, who was first of all married to Prince Wilfred Seey-Montbellard, at one time an officer in the French army. She secured a divorce, and after two years married Prince Edmond Melchoir de Polignac. Another of Isaac Singer's daughters, Isabella, became a duch...
A VICTORIAN PAINTER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A VICTORIAN PAINTER. —♦— The engagement is announced of Mr. George Coates, the talented Victorian painter, who has settled down in London, to Miss Dora Mee- son, also well known as among the most gifted of Australian artists. Miss Meeson, who has lived a great deal in Europe, has exhibited pic- tures at the Paris Salon and Monte Carlo, and while at Julian's studio in Paris won two first mentions against the whole school, men stu- dents included. A marriage took place the other day between another sister, Miss Ruth Meeson, and Captain Gordon Hall, of the King's Own Yorkshire Infantry. Captain Gordon Hall served with distinction in the Tirah Frontier War and the South African Campaign.
MR. HOOLEY, EX-D.L. The following notification appeared in a recent London "Gazette":— [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
MR. HOOLEY, EX-D.L. The following notification appeared in a recent London "Gazette":— Mr. Ernest Terah Hooley is removed from the &nbsp; list of deputy-lieutenants for the county of Cam- &nbsp; bridge, as he is no longer qualified as required by &nbsp; the provisions of the Militia Act, 1882, section &nbsp; 33. &nbsp; Mr. Hooley has also been removed, under the &nbsp; same authority and for the same reason, from &nbsp; the list of deputy-lieutenants for the county of &nbsp; Huntingdon. &nbsp; The "Westminster Gazette" claims to have dis- &nbsp; covered that the Spanish Tin Mining Corporation, &nbsp; the prospectus of which has lately been issued, is &nbsp; one of Mr. Hooley's promotions.
Did You Know This? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
Did You Know This? &nbsp; Lotteries on horse racing were prohibited from &nbsp; the beginning of the year in Pretoria. Naples is to be made a great manufacturing Centre.—Government statement in the Italian &nbsp; Chamber. Two of the largest Rhenish ironworks are negotiating with the Japanese Government for the supply of 70,000 tons of rails. The largest egg laid by any European bird is that of the swan; the smallest that of the golden-crested wren. The smoke of London in certain states of the wind is found condensed on the sea as far away as Devonshire, blackening the water for miles. The Mayor of Nice has refused to allow the Boer lecturers to deliver an address on the war in the hall of the Municipal Theatre. Some damage was done at the Versailles Pal- ace by a fire which broke out in Louis XIV.'s bedroom. The roof and floor of the bedroom were injured. The new railway bridge, the longest in South Africa, across the Lower Tugela, in Natal, is very nearly fi...
A ROYAL TOUR STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A ROYAL TOUR STORY. —♦— A curious story about the Royal tour reaches the "Chronicle" from Portsmouth. When the Ophir, with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall on board was nearing St. Helena, the signal was made to the attendant cruisers St. George and Juno, as it was desirable to reach port before nightfall, "Can you steam another knot?" and the Juno replied, "Yes, four if you please." This answer was regarded as impertinent, and when the vessels reached Portsmouth, as a mild form of punishment, the Juno was ordered to lie up the harbor, while the more respectful St. George came alongside the dockyard. And the Juno is lying at her moorings still. Printed and Published by WATKIN WYNNE, of Bon Accord-avenue, Waverley, at the Office of THE WORLD'S NEWS, 147 King-Street, Sydney, in the State of New South Wales.
POINTED PARAGRAPHS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
&nbsp; POINTED PARAGRAPHS. &nbsp; &nbsp; The way to destroy courage is not to pluck &nbsp; it up. &nbsp; &nbsp; Words may shake a man's convictions, but &nbsp; seldom shatter them. &nbsp; Speaking of bargains, good resolutions will &nbsp; soon be marked down. &nbsp; Wit is the wine of intellect, and ill-nature &nbsp; turns it into vinegar. &nbsp; Even when a girl has money in her own name she is anxious to change it. The world always has time to listen to the man who has something to say. Girls, if you are afraid to spend an evening alone occasionally, don't get married. &nbsp; At 30 a man is anxious for fame; at 50 he is willing to accept money as a substitute. A man will promise a woman anything if she will promise not to interrupt him when he is reading. All the mean acts of his life are quickly brought before a drowning man or a candidate for office. Eve complained that she ha...
THE DYING SOLDIER AND HIS PIPE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE DYING SOLDIER AND HIS PIPE. There have been many stories told about &nbsp; Tommy Atkins and his pipe, but perhaps the &nbsp; following, which appears in a trade contem- &nbsp; porary, is the most wonderful! A surgeon, &nbsp; recently returned from the Transvaal, was &nbsp; relating how he had seen men crying, not to &nbsp; have their pain relieved, but for a pipe of to- &nbsp; bacco. Telling of one instance, he said: "A man &nbsp; was brought in shattered in almost every portion &nbsp; of his body, yet he still lived. I was not sur- &nbsp; prised that under the circumstances he was &nbsp; making an endless noise, and I at once took him &nbsp; in hand. "To my complete surprise, he said, when I &nbsp; approached: 'Don't touch me, sir, I haven't got &nbsp; many more minutes, and I just want a smoke to &nbsp; keep me warm.' I could see he was dying &nbsp; f...
Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. There was nothing particularly wonderful in the list of books which the most recent mail brought. Perhaps that of most interest to Australians ie "The Gold Seekers," by Edward Dyson, a story spoken most highly of by English review- ers. Mr. Dyson is best known here by his "Rhymes from the Mines," and "The Golden Shanty," etc. "The Diamond Necklace" is a betwixt and be- tween. It is said to be the true story of Marie Antoinette and the Cardinal de Rhoan, from &nbsp; documents recently discovered in Paris. There are 12 full-page illustrations, and as all works relating to France about the Marie-Antoinette period are always full of interest this, one of the latest, may be recommended. Another book of some interest is "China in Convulsion," by Ar- thur H. Smith. China, like the Transvaal, has been under-written and over-written, but this work bids fair to hold its own. According to the publisher's notification the book is written by a man un...
