A PINK DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
—o— &nbsp; A PINK DINNER. At a very smart representative luncheon party the other day the cloth, says the "Ladies' Field," was pale pink Harris linen, with a great square transparent centre (through which the mahogany gleamed) of coarse tinted Irish crochet. The dinner napkins were en suite, with a square of the lace let in at one corner, while in the centre of the table there stood a chased silver bowl, mounted on a small pedestal, filled with pink chrysanthemums, very lightly and artistically &nbsp; arranged. Apart from the originality of this departure, the effect was unanimously declared charming, and it is pretty safe to assert that every woman guest at that table registered a mental vow to go and do likewise at the earliest possible moment.
CONCERNING WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
CONCERNING WEDDINGS. It is rarely that the bride, unless married in her travelling-dress, goes to the altar in a hat; but a white chip chapeau was worn the other day with an ivory satin wedding-dress draped with lace, and the effect was very lovely. The bodice was low-neck, but the sleeves, of finest lace, were long to the wrists, and close fitting. This is an effect that Parisians are very fond of—the hat in conjunction with an evening dress. Quite a new idea was started by a bride who was married at a registrar's the other day. As it was obvious that she could not invite her friends to be present at the cere- mony, she sent out invitations to them to come to her house afterwards, and on arrival each guest was presented with a programme of concert that was arranged to take place, por- traits of the bride and bridegroom adorning the cover of the programme, and a bridal hymn being printed inside.
MOTOR QUADRILLES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
MOTOR QUADRILLES. Motor quadrilles are in the air. An American &nbsp; lady has introduced this item at one of her &nbsp; balls, each lady and gentleman going through the figures in a smart little motor. Needless to say that much rehearsal was necessary be- forehand to avoid accidents and render the dan- cers expert in this method of what no reporter can legitimately term terpsichorean exercise. The next thing will be quadrilles by steerable balloons. &nbsp; &nbsp;
A FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE. At St. Paul's Church. Knightsbridge. S.W., re- cently, the marriage took place of Mr. Alexander Comyn Macgregor Finlay, of the 3rd Dragoon Guards, son of Mr. Alexander Henry Finlay, and Miss Uma (Dolly) Beveridge Donaldson, daughter of Mr. Henry Beveridge Donaldson and Mrs. Donaldson, of 29 Wellington-court, Albert- gate. S.W., late of Melbourne. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Prebendary H. Mon- tague Villiers, Vicar of St. Paul's Church, and the bride was given away by Major J. S. Lenox- Conyngham, of the Connaught Rangers. Master and Miss Streeter Lambert carried the train of the bride, who was attended by five brides- maids—Miss Donaldson (her sister), Miss Mar- garet Finlay (sister of the bridegroom), Miss Dorman, Miss Doris Tattersall, and Miss Wieni awska. Captain Parry, of the 3rd Dragoon Guards, acted as best man. A reception was afterwards held at the residence of Colonel and Mrs. Gerald Martin. Later in the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. A. C. M. Fi...
RUSSIAN SUPPORT OF MR. CHAMBERLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
RUSSIAN SUPPORT OF MR. CHAMBERLAIN. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Russian political magazine. "Vicstnik Eu- rope," contains a seriously and impartially written article on the subject of the recent ebul- lition of Anglophobia in Germany, which is in- teresting as a correct reflection of intelligent and fair-minded opinion in this country of the extraordinary sensitiveness manifested by all classes of Germans to the critical comparison made by Mr. Chamberlain at Edinburgh. The following are extracts:— &nbsp; "It is the blackest of infamous libels to compare the conduct of the British troops in South Africa to that of the Germans in France 30 years ago. Were the Germans situated as the British are in South Africa, they would, we do not for a moment doubt, have recourse to much more severe measures. They would make no ceremony, after formally declaring the war at an end, of shooting Boers of the roving and guerilla bands they captured. The most promi- nent and striking featu...
MARRIAGE SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
MARRIAGE SUPERSTITIONS. &nbsp; Some of the superstitions regarding marriage &nbsp; which prevail in different countries are thus de- &nbsp; &nbsp; scribed. &nbsp; &nbsp; In Switzerland the bride on her wedding day &nbsp; &nbsp; will permit no one, not even her parents, to kiss &nbsp; &nbsp; her upon the lips, the idea being that the lips &nbsp; &nbsp; a bride oh her wedding day must belong to her &nbsp; husband alone. &nbsp; The custom of throwing the slipper is said to &nbsp; have originated in France. An old woman see- &nbsp; ing the carriage of Louis XIII. passing on the &nbsp; way from church, where he had just been mar- &nbsp; ried, took off her shoe, and flinging it at his &nbsp; coach cried out: " 'Tis all I have, Sire, but may the blessings of God go with it." &nbsp; A favorite wedding day in some parts of Scot- &...
KIPLING STIRS UP ENGLAND. WITH ANOTHER SHARP POEM. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
KIPLING STIRS UP ENGLAND. WITH ANOTHER SHARP POEM. This is how the New York "Sun"' deals with Kipling's poem, "The Islanders," which ap- peared in the London "Times" of January 4, and was reproduced in "The Daily Telegraph" last Saturday:— "The most significant thing which commands the attention in the first days of the new year is a poem, and that poem is a passionate call to arms directed to the supine heart of the greatest and freest modern empire. Kipling's plea for conscription in Great Britain must be re- garded as a climax of militarism, and a most ominous sign of the times. "It is too early to describe the effect of his scathing rebuke to his countrymen and his wrathful warning of peril. His verses may not arouse England, but they will surely do more toward overcoming official ineptitude than any further lessons the Boers could teach. The first impression on the public mind was undoubtedly one of amazement that the national quality of which Englishmen are proudest, the love ...
ABOUT LORD HOPETOUN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
ABOUT LORD HOPETOUN. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Lord Hopetoun, the Governor-General of Aus- tralia, has had the distinction of being described as an "ideal host" by the Prince and Princess of Wales. He deserves it, for he combines with the Court experience of professional entertaining which he acquired as Lord Chamberlain a natural modesty and want of self-importance which must have been enormously refreshing to the royalties after a long course of colonial Governors. When he is at home in Scotland, where he is next neighbor to Lord Rosebery at Dalmeny, he does things in a very splendid way. His horses are magnificent, and when he has guests of dis- tinction he brings them into Edinburgh with postillions and four, all groomed up to the last hair. But he is absolutely free from "side." He was Lord Chamberlain for two years, and is only moderately bald. But it was while he was cutting down the old Drawing-room arrange- ments that he lost a look of earl...
A NOSE MOULDED IN PARAFFIN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A NOSE MOULDED IN PARAFFIN. &nbsp; The surgeon who takes his vocation seriously is apt to feel that he is rather being made a tool of when he is asked to perform operations for purely aesthetic reasons. Still, happiness is often so completely des- troyed by the possession of unpleasant personal peculiarities, and the increase of human happi- ness is so legitimate an object of human effort, that what is called cosmetic surgery must never be despised. One of the latest developments of this art is said to be the moulding of noses in paraffin which, if reports are to be believed, is now being prac- tised in Vienna. In the deformity known as saddle-nose the most remarkable results are said to be obtained. The process consists in the subcutaneous injec- tion of paraffin which, before it completely sets, is moulded into the desired shape. A warmed syringe is charged with the melted compound and the needle is inserted between the eyebrows, just above the root of the nose, and passed...
A GOOD ANSWER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
&nbsp; A GOOD ANSWER. &nbsp; Inspector of Village School (questioning class): "Now, my boy, what is an island?" Pupil (dejectedly): "I dunno, sir." Inspector: "Well, for instance, could I ride from here to France?" Pupil (brightening up): "Noa, sir, that yer couldn't; for feyther saw you on hossback t'other day, an' sed as how he'd lay a shillin' yer couldn't roide a moile without a-wobbling off." Printed and Published by WATKIN WYNNE, of Bon &nbsp; Accord-avenue, Waverley. at the Office of THE &nbsp; WORLD'S NEWS, 147 King-street, Sydney, in the State &nbsp; of New South Wales.

Schoolboy "Facts." The historical and other "facts" given here are taken from schoolboys' examination papers (says the "University Correspondent"): Of whom was it said "He never smiled again?" &nbsp; —William Rufus did this after he was shot by the &nbsp; arrow. &nbsp; My favorite character in English history is &nbsp; Henry VIII., because he had eight wives and kill- &nbsp; ed them all. &nbsp; The cause of the Peasants' Revolt was that a &nbsp; shilling poultice should be put on everybody &nbsp; over 16. &nbsp; Henry VIII: was a very good king. He liked &nbsp; plenty of money, he had plenty of wives, and &nbsp; died of ulcers in the legs.

Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. The Christmas and New Year holidays have "frozen" up the British book trade, consequently the last mail brought little that was of exciting interest. Two or three mails must come and go before one can get back again to the books which claim more than passing attention and properly sustained interest. The books that came to hand this week were scant in number and are not likely to create a demand which cannot be easily satisfied. "A Bid for Empire" is a story of love and adventure in modern Egypt—much love and much adventure by Major Arthur Griffiths; there is also a charm- ing book of short stories, entitled "Venus Vic- trix., etc." by Helen Mathers, from whose pen a very smart story will appear in "The World's News" next week. The book of the week is, of course, "Before I Forget," by Albert Chevalier, and as it is in the cheap edition will, doubtless, be very widely circulated, and it certainly is very entertaining, _ as those who read this pap...
