Sketcher. EUPEROR WILLIAM IK PARIS. 9TKHE German Emperor has the habit sKI'Id of being mysterious . There is in 2bL» him more than a little of Haroun al-Raschid. Indeed, it has been hinted that the Emperor would have been happiest conld he have been an actor, playing not only regal roles, but as well the dark, cloaked figureB that strut through the melodramas.

BOOTS AND SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 12 September 1902
BOOTS AND SHOE'S. As the summer holiday means living in the air as much as possible, it ib im portant that boots and shoeB should be fairly stout and quite comfortable. Brown Bhoes for morning wear are most useful, as they ehow tbe dust lesB than black oneB. There are various shades of 'brown' leather, the smartest brown Ehoes being something of the shade of brown nana*. Sine roru fnoViintipMa walking shoes of black glace are made with long tongue-pieces and buckles, and require neither buttons nor lacofe. Ameri can boote, which ate gaining favour in England, give a very Blender appearance to the foot, but at the same time allow plenty of room by their almost exag gerated length. To be comfortably shod means much to the enjoyments the hbli day, and a point to be rem*mta*ed in buying bcots or ehoes is that it 1b jtfftt its necessary for the footgea* to \te suffi ciently broad. Short shoes and bsmts are often responsible for enlarged toe-] dints.

MUTE MOMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 12 September 1902
MUTE MOMENTS. When purest joys or deepest sorrows Fill us to the brim with feeling, When in the soul's most secret chambers Supremest seems the heart's appealing — Then, cruellest stress of our estate, We lean there inarticulate. Wordless are all our highest senses, Mute our moments moBt fraught with meaning j The glow which to the full intenses Our times and moods — some wondrous screening Keeps, whilst we dwell above the sod, A seoret between us and God. Ah ! only when, in Heaven only, Tbe spirit from the flesh ia free, Then, surely then, the pent-up music Will hymn its final ecstasy ;— And many a mute one all lifelong Will burst divinely into song.

The cheaper navy serges are usually mote dull-looking than the better ones, but sometimes, even in a oneap pattern, a full, rich blue is obtainable. The serge gown should therefore be carefully chosen, and the beat and bluest colour selected. The model sketched in thin column shows a serge ostnme made up with a sailor blouse and trimmed throughout with white braid in a eort of Greek-key pattern. The little vest might be of the braid laid on to white flannel or Cambridge blui eateen, or of white batiBte and insertion. A pretty effect would also be obtained by facing the collar with light blue, the white braid in any case forming a border. A white flannel blouse made after the fashion illustrated ...
