Square Shoulders Now the Proper Thing. The blind devotion of the typical woman to the relentless though invisible fetich of fashion, ^hicfrn rt and beauty., to the eir^tio demands of its royal pleas^.WSnspiras in itsworshippers more superstitious awe and magic faith. than was ever offered up before the shrine of any divinity natural or supernatural, is evidenced most conclusively in wis evolution of pfayfe&al charms to the requirements of its stendqxd beauty.

Ladies v. Clubs. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 23 March 1889
Ladies v. Clubs* From the first (writes Clement Seotiin America) ladieB have been, the sternest and most uncompromising opponents of men's clubs. They Urge that men are selfish enough -without these luxuries; that when at tached to a club they become discontented with home, snub the domestic table, and complain «jf the homely cookery. Clubs are supposed Jo be a veiled excuse .for many-male dissipations; clandestine letters are addressed there, ands visit to the dub is an excise for every -vagary to which men are prone. So, in recent modem life, men have taken the i bull by the horns, and have tandidly admitted women to these exclusive societies on certain oonditibne. Artistic Bohemianism is one of the features of modern London life. Onepf the prettiest clubs, that society London has ever started is called the Lyno Club) and it has been started by rich amateurs in we musi cal, literaiy, and artistic world. .

He saved money, embraced Areanism, collected a library, and got promoted by a by a faction to to the Episcopal throne of Alexandria. When Julian came (A.d. 861) George was dragged to prison ; the prison was burst open by the mob and George was, lynched-as he deserved to be, and this precious knave beca' j in good time St. George of England, Patron of Chivalry, Emblem of Victory and Chivalry, and the pride of the best blood or the modern world.
