A LITTLE COMMON COURTESY. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 28 October 1926

A LITTLE COMMON COURTESY. "She has such charming manners." The people about whom one says this with truth are deplorably few, for man- ners, have gone out with corsets, and the modern girl has apparently no in- tention of reviving either! As in all caf-cs where the demand exceeds the supply, good manners are all the more ap; >'< elated ivhon they are met with. Jf the flowery speech and exaggerated courtesy of the early Victorian days were ludicrous, the curt "don't care a hung for you" behaviour of to-day is lamentable. Is there anyth'ng moro insane than the "Oh, sorry!" that escapes from the lips of the modern girl who spills cream on -your evening frock, or bumps you in lier careless rush along tlie street? Possibly she is sorry, but it is difilcult to believe it, since her tone so clearly conveys that neither you nor your" frock'had any right to bo where they were, If, indcod, to exist at all.

NEW IDEAS IN CUT GLASS It is not always that fashion and beauty go hand in hand, but in the case of the present vogue for cut glass the two terms are practically inter- changeable. English cut glass has always been the most beautiful of its kind produced, and manufacturers of to-day are tak- ing advantage of the present fashion to supply yet more varied and more .ovcly designs. It Is possible to obtain every item of table requirements, and .nany oi general Household use. The table so set has a beauty all its own, and, moreover, glass is much easier to keep in order than silver. A new appointment of particular charm Is the fruit salad set in cut glass, which comprises a large bowl for serv- ing, and individual bowls, set on glass plates for each guest. Glass servers aro also made to match. Another channing novelty is the cut glass jug Intended for water or soft drinks. Down tlie centre of the jug runs a glass shaft, fitted at the top with a stopper. This is intended for iqe, and, of ...
