THE LADIES' COLUMN. My Baby. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

THE LADIES' COLUMN. , My Baby. Asleep my little baby lee- i budnew fallen from the skies, My pearl just brought from ocean's shell, Fond smiles-they crowd apace' As close I press the tiny face And little form we love so well. She is our first-born, this fair girl, This little, paly human pearl ; This best of all gifts Heaven e'er brought. Oh, Life was all unfinished Ere in its woof its golden thread fBy kindly angel hands was wrought! God sent her in autumnal hours, When heavily the fadin0 flowers Drooped 'nenath the chillina touch of frost, Mid wailing wind and leafless bower Awoke to life our little flower ; A s~teeter bud than earth had lost. Now summer's hbreth her soft hairstrs ; Not yet a twelvemonth's life is hers; O, baby, ors as short a space ! What wondrous gift of magic power, Whatroyalcrown, what golden dose, r, Could ever fill thy vacant place God, pluck not back Thy little flower ! Ol, Monarch Death, thuhou hast a dower Of many a rare and radiant gem ! Spare, spare to ...

Marriageable Royalties. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Marriageable Royalties. There is remarkable tightneoe in the Royal Marriage Market. It has been left for the Vienna correspondent of the "Standard" to explain to ns how really desperate is the condition of the marriageable Princes and Princesses of Europe. There are as yet unmated the Czarevitch, the Crown Prince of Ital., n the King of Servia, not to speak of thiyire to the crowns of Anetria..Belgium andhionz tenegro. Why? Because no Princesosearo available without first changing their r' on and what nation likes its Prince to &inog home a 'vert. Without a change of creed on the pat of a Princess, the choice of the Russian trown Prince outside the Romanoff family is lmated to Princess Marie of Greece and one (t;the daughters of the Prince of Montte0ro Similarly, the young Serrian King Alea ander has only the Russian and Montecegrin Princesses to choose from if he marries vithin his own creed. For the Roman Catholic heirs-aPerent there are only left 23 Roman CatholcPrin. cea...

Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Ladies' Gossip, There are now no less than twenty women members.of the British Medical Association, all of whom are folly qualified medical practi tioners. At the last annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, it was decided that the medical section of the society should be thrown open to feminine membership. This resolution was seconded by Mrs Garrett Anderson, who was herself a member before 1876. The Prince and Princess of Wales, followed by Princesses Victoria and Maud, and the rest of the Royal party, made a special visit to the Harem, on their visit to Olympia on the 8th, and were met at the entrance by Mrs Murray Cookesley, who presented Her Royal Highness with a lovely bouquet of roses and lilies of the valley, which the latter grtciously accepted. Mrs Murray Cookesley then conducted their Royal Highnesses inside the harem, where they remained for some time admiring the artistic arrangement of this Eastern seraglio. The Prince complimented the...

The Woman Who Gives Advice. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

The Woman Who Gives Advice, She is a very wearisome woman, the who gives yon advice. She does not wait till you ask for it or mse thinks you need it. Shehas it in store, and if you happen aloeg she pours it out on you. It usually happens, too, that ehe pours it most freely when you can't use it, don't wsat it, wouldn't have it, and wish she would keep still. She has sharp eyes as a rule. They are nat bright and pretty, but restless little beads thst look as if they were threaded with a pin poeit which pricks you at every glance. If she looks, it is to criticises; if she listenuit is to suggest; if she speaks, it is to relate her experience and explain her way. You may meekly suggest that you also would like to come by your khowledke through experience, but she seems to to doubtful if so unimportant an individual wil ever have any of the happenings that teachb. She means well, oh, bless her, yes: but she is very "wearing" to mortals that come in her way and have mislaid their aings.<...

Courtship and Proposals [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Courtship and Proposals, I hear that a great deal of the romance of courtship and of proposal is dying out but I amloth to believe it. It is said that the young men are getting more practical every day, and make more of a matter of business of these delicate affairs' than they used todo; If this be true they are making a mltake. Girlswho are in love are usually vetr sen timental, and a yonngman who knews what he is about will cater to thie feeling. He will propose at some anspicioUs time, when the moon is shining, dreamy mrsic is playing, and nature is doing her best to aid him.e. There are so many wrong times in ;hich to ask a girl to become your wife. I heard of one young swain who was in such a hurry that heo "proposed" in a pour ing storm, with the wind almost turnisghis nmbrellainside out, while the rained spoiled his inamorata's hat and ran down the bock of her neck in rivulets. Althonah she was fond of him she was so irritated that she said "No !" with a kind of vicious joy.-...

Fighting the Anarchists. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Fighting the Anarch'sts, Soene.-Private office of the Minister of the Interior. Enter a visitor. The Minister (politely indicating a chair): "jWhat can I do for you. sir?" "Ihave called, sir," replies the visitor, who has a lurid, uncertain expression about the eye, and whose hair looks as if it had been trying to fix itself to re semble some of the figures in the first book of Enclid, and got worried and mixed during the process, "because I think I have dis covered a means of serving my country. The Anarchists have declared war ! They have cpened the beall; they want revenge for Vaillant. We must fight them with their own weapons !" The minister glenced round in time to dis cover the type writer and secretary gliding through the door. "I don't quite under 9taed," he murmured soothingly. The Euclid-haired gentleman suddenly prodnced a box of cigars, walked to the minister's desk, and put them gently thereon. "You see those cigars? Look like Havanas, don't they? They are dynamite!"

Br Jonu reEnrvTeGor. h Mr Richardson told a deputation last d week that he trusted it would be the last i he should receive on the subject of re duced railway freights. If he really has , that trust he must be an uncommonly c sanguine man. I have known him for 1 some years on the road and off the road. t I have seen him in office and out of office. I have lived and worked ina his I district, and I will do himn the justice to , say that, when a private member, no man I ever worked harder for reduced fares in his district than he did. Departmental t trotting was in fashion just then, and the honorable gentleman was as well to fhe front in those days as here and there a t man. There was a general idea abroad r at the time that the railways were for the a country and not the country for the rail ways. And so the ball rolled merrily on. ° Now the game is retrenchment, and tile railways are to be made to pay. That the I present rates-whether hligh or low I as compared with those of other ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

During the cholera scare some months ago, a rule was established in Vienna that persons visiting restaurants were not to be allowed to squeeze the small rolls lying in baskets on the tables to teat their freshness. One day, however, a captain of Jagers entered, and went from one table to another handling all the bread before he made up his mind on a roll. A master baker, who was also a visitor in the restaurant, spoke to him about it. The captain gave a haughty answer, and then waited for the baker outside the restaurant, and under a gas lantern stabbed him dead with a knife. The baker's death caused a great commo tion among the inhabitants of the suburb, and his funeral was attended by many thousands of well-to-do burghers to prove that everybody's sympathies were with him. It is now stated that the officer was sentenced to six months' arrest in barracks and will be allowed tokeep his rank when he has finished his term. One cannot help wondering what the sentence would have been ha...

Kerosene for [?]eep Ticks. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Kerosene for ;eep Ticks. Six lively sheep ticks v make the existence of a lamb perfectly misele, and a dozen will ruin all hope of profit inob raising, however generous the feed. Shetieks annually cause more loss to Americanockowners than all other sheep parasites cibined.

The Truth About Linen. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

The Truth About Linen. The truth about linen is that it isn't the ideal dressing for beds at all. It is cold and slippery, and insures sensitive persons the dream of sleep ing on an iceberg, which does well enough for an occasional experience, like sea-sickness, but which palls on too frequent repetition. Besides that, it wrinkles and tumbles, in spite of its heavier body, much more than cotton does, giving a bed after one night's use a most slovenly and uninviting appearance. Nobody recommends linen for body wear. Its firm texture and hard surface make -it wholly non-absorbent; it allows the body to become chilled by refusing the perniration, and so has been known to bring on serious illness. For outside wearin summer, linen may be to!erated as clothing, but nowhere else. Where, however, it is at its most useful and best, is in household uses. For table ovrvice, for the toilet, and for minor ornamental details, it is simply invaluable; its smoothness of texture, its brilliancy, whi...

Ladies' Costumes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Ladies' Costumes. Some of the London newspapers are a trifle audacious in their criticisms .on feminine dresses, Here is an example by a critic in a morning journal:-"Pro fessor Hayes, a Chicago lady, woro a blue serge containing ten pockets. This was going almost too far. Let Woman have one or two practicable pockets; we ask no more. She is not a marsupial animal, and does not need teis pockets. The Physical Culture Society condemns all corsets. In that case Woman should not try to wear the kind of dress which is made to be worn with corsets. That only makes her look bulgy and baggy. One author denies that any one can admire both the much-enduring Venus of 3Iilo and a 'fashionably dressed woman.' To do this is to be guilty of 'utter hypocrisy.' This is absurd. Pretty women lock well in any costume. The Venus looks well--m none." Su.h are the sentiments of an evidently right-minded man with a taste for natural beauty.

A VERY BAD SPELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

A VERY BAD SPELL. A good story of the danger of phonetic spelling is told by an Australian paper. A Scandinavian named Baumgartz, who is established in Australia as a schoolmaster, was astonished and outraged one day by the receipt of the following missive: Old Boom guts isqueer. Cur, ass, you are a man of no legs, i wish to nter my bowie in your skull. A conference was hold, and the writer, a newcomer, was visited by a body of inhabit ants, and asked indignantly to read his letter aloud, and say what he meant by it. He read :--Ole Baumgartz, Esq.-" Sir,-As you are a man of knowledge, I with to enter my boy in your school."

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. --o A performance of As You Like It by a cast consisting entirely of ladies was given at the Prince of Wales Theatre. London, on Toes day, 27th February. The minor parts of foresters and others were filled by ladies, as well as the more prominent characters. The entertainment, which is described as a very interesting one, was generally successful, for, although great care had baen-devoted to the production, it was a matter of physical impossitility for some of the actresses to assume the necessary masculine traits of several of the characters in the comedy. Mi6a Ferrar's Orlando is spoken of in terms of warm praise, as also the Adam of Miss Mlorlad, whilt Miss Hope met with the accustomed success in the well-known Seven Ages speech in the character of Jacques. As Touchstone, Miss Sophie Larkin delivered the caustic speeches more as feminine retorts. The wrestling scene is spoken of as being exceedingly well managed. An orchestra of ladies provided the incidental m...
