FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

FAMILY IN STATUES. WOMAN'S WEIRD WILL. i Miss Catherine MacCaig, -whose bro ther, the late Mr. John Smart Mac Caig, an Oban (Scotland) banker, di rected in his will that 12 colossal sta tues of himself, his wife, and his fam ily should 'be erected on the top of the walls of a gigantic tower which he had built on Oban Hill, has left an eccentric will on a similar plan. M;ss MacCaig, who died last year, was the last of the line, and by an early will left various bequests in the ordinary way, but in 1910 sjie added a codicil to take precedence of all else, by which the MacCaig Tower might gain further fame, and be ten anted within as well as without. Tl\e tower is to be railed in, and on the inside more statues are to be erect ed, to her father, mother, brothers, and sisters, and herself, to the number of 12, "including Peter, who died in In fancy." Where a likeness is not pro curable the statues are to bear a close family resemblance to Mr. Mac Caig, the donor of the statues on the wa...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," ia Melbourne. It is really astonishing how quickly we have the new season's fashions here, and, in a way, it must.be confess ed, it in rather a pity, .for it means we are adopting modes designed for sum mer fabrics while we are still in win ter and wearing cloth and heavy weight materials. But as soon as in dications of the advance styles arrive, people will have them, so, in conse quence, they are shown by our leading establishments. For instance, already .e flat Watteau and Dolly Varden *md of hats, which have been intro duced in Paris for spring, are being shown here. They are very pictur esque and distinctly becoming,- but not nearly so coBy and comfortable as the close-fitting ones we have been wear ing for a long time. However, per haps it is for the best, as the majority of women have been complaining bit terly of trouble with their hair and of its falling out excessively, and they blame it in a great measure to the close, tight-fitting hats which ...

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE ' STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. ; I The death of Mr. Walter Dagleisli | on the stage of the King's Theatre, Fremantle, recalls the fact that many notable actors have made similar dra .matic exits from this world. Some years ago, says the "Sun," it was the custom of the attendants at" the Prin cess Theatre in Melbourne to point to a bloodstain on a carpet at the exact spot on whi'ch Signor Frederick died when he was playing in "Faust." The story of his tragic death used to be told in awesome whispers. Among actors of a superstitious tem perament the bloodstain—as the stain had never been sent to the public analyst for identification it is difficult to say whether it was human blood— was a hallowed spot, and many of them who were seen doing an undig nified side-step not in the business of the play were only trying to avoid desecrating the death-stain with the point of their stage shoes. Signor Frederiei died, as several imperson ators of- Mephisto...

LIFE IN RHODESIA. VICTORIAN WOMAN'S VIEWS. BLACK SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

LIFE IN RHODESIA. VICTORIAN WOMAN'S VIEWS. BLACK SERVANTS. Life in the hinderland of South Africa is not exactly similar to lifts in Australia's Northern Territory, ac cording to .Mrs. W. E. Dick, who spent years of her life in Southern Rho desia before coming to Melbourne to live. "I had not a dull day all the tims I was there," she says, in an inter view. "My husband was in charge of one of the railway stations, which was really the receiving depot for the settlers' produce. So I had many opportunities of learning the ways, of the people. It was a bit strange at first. For miles around stretched the veldt, while here and there a farm house dotted the landscape. Buc the strangeness soon wore off. The peo ple were so warm-hearted; in fact, they seemed to think it was their duty to make a new arrival feel at home." Do you think the Kaffir makes u good servant?" "Certainly; that is, If you train him yourself. The first boy I had was an awful stupid, and could not do any thing correctl...

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. Most writers o£ Action- unnecessari ly tax their imagination. If they would only keep a scrap-book fille.i with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think out good plots or dramatic situations. John Frederick Wilson, n traveller, of Angel-road, Brixton, was married in io97, possibly to celebrate the golden jubilee, when he was only 22 years of age. In three years he had wearied of his marital responsibilities, and, according to the custom of some parts 01 Brixton, he left home one morning, and forgot to return. After eight years of single blessedness he had doubts about the joys of bachelorhood, and, recking nothing of the law relating to bigamy, he led another lady to the altar. Meantime his first wife ha1 been drifting down the road that leadq to the police station and His Majes ty's gaols. She was arrested on Mon day' for some minor offence, and tak en to the Kensington-road Police Sta tion. Every self-respecting woman in Brixton carries her ...
