WHEN FATIGUE IS HURTFUL; [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
W?tE FATIGUE IS -tURTFULS Not all fatigue is dangerous or abnormal, and because children or scholars become tired it does not follow that they are over worked. The lowest functions, notably the heart boeat, seem to have an automatic or semi-automatic form of recuperation; so that, provided there is no frocing of them to work at too high a speed, recuperatinn keeps pace with exhaustion. The highest functions, and, mo4t of all, the brain ener gies, demanded by civilised life, fatigue most readily. At what point normal fatiquo passes into abnormal it is not easy to determise. The best test is the capacity for recuperation. A fatigue,. however se vere. whether physical or mental, that is totally dissipated by a night's rest, can hardly be said to be abnormal. It is only when the principal is being drawn upon that-tho danger of exhaustion begins. Se vere effort, periods of strain and stress, are unavoidable in modern life. The capacity to undergo them is a logitimate aim of education, bu...

AT the Yaes police court last ruesday, Mr Thomeas, P,M., made some very sensible re. marks with reference to the Pastures Protection Act, and stated that he wished the Board would make a test case of a case so that magistrates would know what position they stood in. In Mr Langtree's case, which differed from the others, the P.M,. dismissed the case and gave the following reasons :_-' From the evidenos in this case and in view of the opinion expressed by Mr. Turner in his evidence, via., that the Board would not have, taken these steps had they been satisfed that defendant had complied with the qotige" t6 poison otn .

A SIMPLE STYLE FOR OATMEAL CLOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
1 S1JAPLE STYLE FOR .OOATIJEAL CLOTH. The material of which the dress is made is dark-blue oatmeal cloth, and the pointed strapping, laid on the open fronts of the coat, the cuffs and hoem of the skirt, is of plain cloth to match, stitched all over, the points lbeing emphasised by the addition of small fancy buttons. A polerino of oatmeal cloth trims the coat and vinishes into the waist. This costume is very simple, but smart-looking withal. It would work out well in black hopsack or oatmeal cloth with appliquo strappings of Irish greon cloth ; or in red cloth, with black strappings.
Ladies' Column. LATEST LONDON AND PARIS FASHIONS. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
Ladies' Column. LATEST LONDON. AND PARIS FASHIONS. BY MISS ADA MELLER. [ALL oIGuLT RESERsVED.] F ASHION is arbitrary at times, but just now the most delightful license is allowed in modes, and there is no: just reason to complain of sameness. Exag gerated or reasonable types of the Early Victorian modes, full skirts and fitted skirts, picture dresses and blouses of the tucked and inlet variety that carry with them no suggestion of an epoch other than the present-these are some of the things permitted us to wear to-day ; and we see equally varied styles in the matter of hatp" for we can go crownless orgwyear a high crown, we can shade our faces beneath the quaint old-fashioned mushroom hat or the wide brim of a Gainsborough, or we can adopt the smart little toque that has no outstanding brim whatever. In sleeve designs alone, the choico Sis unlimited. From the immensely full sleeve with a graceful but, it must be admitted, most inconvenient pouch at t4o wrist, to the severely plain c...
SILVER LACED WYANDOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
SILYEJ LACED WYANDOTS. Thb Silver-Laced Wyandots- the original variety of this breed-are coming paok to their old time popularity. Sitting hens are by no means to be disparaged, for it is to them that we consign the eggs which we esteem most valuable, and from which we hope to produce our future prizo winners. When great numbers of chicks are to be hatched, the incubator is a necessity, but when one has a few eggs in which they take especial interest they are given to some reliable old hen. A box should be divided into three compartments, each intended to accommodate one hen. The compartments are about fourteen inches square on the bottom, and the box is about eighteen inches high. The top is covered by a hinged lid. In front there is a sliding door which may be removed. The box is in tended to confine the sitting hens to their nests, and to'exclude all others. Openings in the box for the admission of air are turned toward the wall or partiticn. A little while before hens. naturally...

CHAPTER XXIV. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
CHAPTER XXIV.' -Raw har not been engaged very regularly in the ordinary work of the bank for some time now. Indeed, except to examine and direct on essential matters, he had left the routine work mainly to his sub ordinates. Douglass, of course, under stood in what other direction Raven's energies were occupied; and as a matter of fact, it fell to him mainly to supervise such matters of office detail as Raven was obliged to neg lect. On such occasions as Raven attended to his duties Luker Hirst was generally in attendance on him. The circumstance usually occurred by more accident, as, owing to Hirst's *superior position, he. was brought into contact with the manager more fre quently than the other employes, and yet each meeting always had a certain air of restraint which gave it the appearance of a mancouvre on one side or the other. On the day following Mrs Denbigh Dene's 'At Home' R-.ven spent a few hours in the bank., It was approach ing three o'clock, when Luker IIirst, having g...

MRS. JtTHUR PAGET. Popular in all ranks, Mrs Arthur Paget has for a long time hold a unique position in London society, for she is ' as clever as she is beautiful,' and knows just the right thing to say atthoe right moment. She has also the invaluable gift of social originality, the faculty of not being afraid of doing something 'because nobody has done it before.' Although she has a grown-up family she.is still quite girlish-looking, her face being of the petite piquanto order, with a pair of merry black eyes that see fun in everything. Before she married the then Captain Arthur Paget in 1878 she was Mliss Minnie Paran Stevens, a veritable Belle of New York, who came regularly over to charm London society every season. Her reign as Belle of New York before her marriage lasted five years. She has often been chaffed as being the pioneer of the fair American girl invaders who, of late years, have come over to the Old Country to carry off noble English husbands. She is a loader among e...

With Lady Brownlow, Lady Eloho, and Mrs Asquith, she founided the now defunct Society of Souls, about whose fringe were many gifted and attrao. tive girls who now occupy considerable positions in the world of, fashion. Lady Granby is a law unto hortelf. Not all women admire her style of dress and adorn ment. But it has the charm of uncon ventionality, inasmuch as she designs all her own gowns and millinery, and her jewels are a dream. Watts used to love to paint and sketch her, her style of beauty appealino strongly to his sasthetio taste. Lady Granbhy herself is an artist of quite exceptional skill, and her portraits of notable man and Women of the period are really admirable. Her husband, the eldest son of the veteran Duke of Rutland, is one of the few men to sit in the House of Lords simultaneously with their fathers. Lady Granby was a great favourite with Quee...
Poetry. THE NIGHTINGALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
Poetry. THE NIGHTI(GALE. SOLE singer in the world of dreams, Whose voice, outringingelear and far Into the empty darkness, seems An echo from a distant star. Thou comest, as God's angels will, When day and all its noisier mirth, Cone past us like a wind, are still: The stars in heaven and thou on earth. Thou singest yet in all the years, In all the years the stars arise, When sleep has dulled our heedless ears And weighs like death upon our eyes. And ah ! outworn with sordid cares. We drowse in other glooms supine, Blind even to greater light than theirs, And deaf to loftier songs than thine. But stillthey shine though none should see; And aingest thou, unheard, forgot, Save in lone night-times, it may be, When they and thou shall know it not, Their shining makes some pathway bright ; One hears thee as he taoils along, And passes onward through the night, Glad in their splendour and thy song. A. ST J. AucOCK.

They knew I was on the roof, They have pierced my disguise and have discovered my identity. More than that, they have communicated with me by a mysterious agency, of which I cannot even suggest an cxplana - tion.' And then Raven narrated the extra ordinary circumstances under which he received his own letter, with an added message, enclosed to him in an addressed envelope. IIardy's many questions, prompted by astonishment, did not lead to even the semblance of a solution. The thing was entirely inexplicable. ' By Jove I' exclaimed Hardy, after some reflection, 'I have it.' ' You have what ?' asked Raven. 'I know what it means. These Raven at another time would have laughed at the suggestion; but now, deeply impressed with his experiences in the dingy attic of Pika Street, he was more rea...
