TORTURED TO BE BEAUTIFUL [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 December 1898

TORTURED TO BE BEAUTIFUL At the inquest upon a lady killed by the explosion of a hair wash with which she was j having her hair dressed, an official stated a curious fact in his evidence. He said that ' a lady who had been used to having her hair j prcparea witn tno wasn proved to be so j dangorous, had, since the explosion, refused i to deaist from the practice, but had required her hairdresser to keep damp blankets at hand while the operation was in progrcaa, ao hat if .an explosion did occur the fire might readily be put out. i The incident shows what some women will' dare for beauty. Thu lady in ouestion, how- ' ever, is by no means bo exceptional an in- ' dividual as many folk' will be tempted . to ; imagine. Thousands of women are content ! to risk their lives or health, or are willing to undergo exquisite tortures, all for the sake : of some tempting proffer of beauty— often delusive — to be gained. Most doctors num ber among their patients women who are Buffering ft om the e...

WHERE THE CURFEW TOLLS. I [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 December 1898

WHEKE THE CUllFEW TOLLS. Therc'aro not many places where the Cur few boll is still tolled every night, but tho old Cinque port of Sandwich is ono of these few. From the tall Dutch tower of St. Peter's church rings the bell every night as it has rung ouch auusut for the last soven hundred years— a record quite unsurpassed. The aex ion receives *,zu a year tor performing this service. In 1833 the corporation discussed the advisability of doing away with the cus tom and saving the £20, which ia quite an amount in a small town like Sandwich. Sentimental considerations, however, pre vailed and the nightly bell has rung out over the aandy flats without protest till recent years, when again tho discussion arose, but at last accounts the curfew is still tollin' from the tower. °

QUAINT VEHICLES. As every touriat is aware, a eariole ia a most comfortable little car on two wheels for one passenger. The seat is shaped like a shell and nicely padded, and the traveller goes along with his feet resting infixed stirrups at the side, unless he likes to tuck elsewhere on the framework of the carriage.

ANOTHER COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 14 December 1898

ANOTHER COMPLAINT. A few issues since wo drew the attention of -our Council lors to the rotten sanitary state of the town. ' Since then a word was said about the pub lic complaint we had made a a few day3 previously ; our comments had no effect — in fact, it seemed like if we had bjeu pouring water on a duck's back. 'Wo now repeat that it is a' crying shame to let matters rest as they are ; the public health must suffer when the aldermen are careless and negligent, and when cleanliness and tleffcncy ore only mere ' stretches of imagination. Only on Thursday last our attention ?was drawn to a cesspit which had been dismantled and .-thrown into disuse. The pit was covered with only a few ?inches of dirt and several loose ^bricks, and round the edges could be seen^ congealed foecal ?matter, In an adjoining house three members of a family were down on beds of sickness, but we cannot say if the filth close by was the cause of it.
