DRESS OF JAPANESE BRIDES. WHITE WORN FOR PART OF THE CEREMONY, BUT FOR A STRANGE REASON. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 13 March 1913
DRESS OF JAPANESE BRIDES. -4----- WHITE WORN FOR PART OF Tlli?; CEREMONY, BUT FOR A STRANGE RgABON. Brides of Japan follow the sams custom which prevails in the Western world, that of wearing white at the wedding ceremony, at least, during i part of it. But the significance at tachedl to the choice of this colour is quite different on the two sides of the world. The Japanese bride is dressed first in resplendent garments of white silk, the sleeves of the costume usuially he ing about three feet in length, while the salh, an Important feature, mnla sures about eleven feet in length. But white, as the "Oriental Revi-w' replains, is the mourning colour in Japan, and the bride, leaving her parents' housne considers herself dead In the sense that she will never re turn alive. preferring death to di vorce, and in consequence wearing a white costume. After the exchange of cups of sake with the bridegroom, which is the most important part of the wedding ceremony, the bride changes her cos t...

THE LADY WHOSE HUSBAND WANTED HER HOME. ---4 AN EPISIDE OF THE WORK OF A GENERAI., REPOR'rER, Thr managing editor of a daily paper is a pretty important man, and the bigger thile paper the more important he is. He is like the gen eral of an Army, and his word is law. His judgment is virtually he. yond appeal. IIls orders most I;e obeyed 'anqles tioningly , and when he deigns tr give them in person to a common everyday reporter tile effect is allout the same as if Napoleon the First hiad told ia soldier of the lile to stog a Germanll Army Corps all by him. sell. He would try to do it, with out counting the consequcnces. There isn't a reporter il tile world who, if his managing editor told him to go to Sinam and bring Iback ans ether white elephant to put in tht fllow window of his newspaper office, would not start right off to catch the first possible steamer, relying up on tile necessary money for expenses being sent after him some way or other; and you may therefore ihe lieve that ...

THE BLESSED CHARM OF FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 13 March 1913
THE BLESSED CHARM OF FISHING. What, a merry lottery is fishing I amnl ni gambler, only a week or two ago tile green cloth in the quiet Casino at Cannes, the spinning wheel in thile gorgeons saloons at Monte Carlo left me calm. But. the glorious lhazard of rod and flue I love. Skill counts for much, let I have caught pretty trout any where between Corsica and Canada, though my skill with the fly-rod Is less than that, of some ladies with a hasmmer. T'erslstenc., as Sir Iklward Grey lirefers to call it, counts for more; yet I have made some of my beost baskets in my leanst patlent mood. But lck - oh ! Give nme luck and keep the . rest. You can fluke on a trout-streatm ns merrily an on a bil liard-table. A rchance fly, taken hap hazard from the old priskin hoolk, when all the lornl patterns are fea tooningl alders and willows along the bank, will roIuse thie trout to very depravity of appetite.

ANL OLD-FASHIONED JOCKEY. - +---- By E. H-. O9opr, Author of "Mr. Blake of Newmarket,' Tile simple, straightforward ques tion is," said Mr. Josiah Cartwright to his wife, "shall my horse win this race, or not ? If he is to win it, the Jockey who rides him must be kept in a good temper, anti tile two jockeys who are riding Lady Folly and Elli man must be kept in a good temper, too, otherwise they'll heat hint. Ei ther of them could leave himnt stand ing still over any distance, at anlly weights." "It seems to tloe sometimes," said Mrs. Cartwright, "that Iit would Itake far less time and trouble to win a race honestly now and then. At this kind of business Marian and Olive and I, tas well as you, are workingt like gilley-slaves fromt morning till night, and the result can't be lmuchl more profitable than if you trained a horse to gallop faster than thell others. Did you hear what old .ere miah l3ayham was telling me last night about the time his son was run in for musrdering a shopmit...

WERBIRIBEE FARLMEMRS' PICNIC TO Tll EDITOR. SIR-I notice in theI "Banner " of 27/2/13, under your news items, a par containing the following: 6 "Many. 1Verribee residents who patronised the farmers' picnic on the 13th inst expressed dissatisfac tion at the arrangements made."

No complaints of any description were made to the committee, overy one expressing satisfaoti6n with all arrangemulnts.

TIhE CENTRE RIDING. TO THt SDITOi. Slt,-Being a resident and rate payer of the Shire of Werribee for many years and one of the many ratepayers who stipported the re-sub division of the Shire thought the creation of another riding would certainly be a great advantage to the township, as the riding would have throe representatives with only a small area to command their atten tion, whereas the representatives of the old Est _.riding liad a tre mendous amount of territory to look after, Even a visitor making a casual call at the town cannot but be struck with the backwardnoss of a town 60 years of ago and eituate in the suburban radius. While .I do not think one should be too quick in rushing into print to ,publioly orititise mien who are giving their time and serving the public without anin fee or rwvard, other than the honor of having) their envelopes addreseed Councillor so-and-so, yet after hearing so much of the old council having "done so many things they should not havo :done an...
