MODES OF THE MOMENT. Special Article. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911
MODES OF THE MOMENT. Special Artfcle. (By "FANELLA.") My readers will toll me that it is one of the easiest things in the world' for the writer to select ono particular forecast whic'h has proved correct and then make that favourite exclamation of our sex-"I told you so." 13ut it is a far more difficult and risky proceed ing to condcmn out of hand ono of the newest and most widely-pushed modes at the commencement of a season. This, however, I ventured to do when tho short coat was first flooding showrooms, and now my opinion that this style would gain no great or lasting favour lias been fully vindicated. To-day tho three-quarter and full-length coat reaching almost to the bottom of the skirt is definitely the most favoured style, and followers of fashion's trend will not need me to point out that the bolero and the ultra-short jacket have never really , had a vogue in smart circles. Last week I was told by a high authority in the world of dress-a gen tleman whose opinions I have qu...
NATURE STUDY. HEDGEHOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 14 January 1911
NATURE STUDY. HEDGEHOGS. We cannot be said to know very lit tle about hedgehogs, but we may (says a writer In the "Spectator") certainly agree that naturalists dispute over them a great deal. There is probably not one of our lowlier British animals about whose habits there are so many differences of opinion. His voice, his food, his sleep, his guilt or innocence in regard to the poultry yard and the gamo preserves-all these, or certain aspects of the questions involved, are moot points. Some gamekeepers kill every hedgehog they can, believing that the' little beasts suck eggs and kill young birds. Others will tell you, that they have never seen a hedgehog do any harm, and are doubtful whether the harm which he is said to do may not be the work of some other animal, possibly rats. Naturalists, again, disagree as to the creature's i habits of sleep. One asserts roundly that hedeghogs hibernate from De cember to the first warm day in March, and that during that period they are not know...

GORSE HALL ,MURDER. WILDE ACQUITTED. After a trial lasting five days, Marie Wilde was,. at the Chester Assizes to day, writes the "Dally News" on Octo ber 29, found not guilty ot the chatg6 of murdering Mr George Harry Storrs at Gorse Hall on the: night of Novem ber 1, 1909. Wilde is the second man who hat» been acquitted of the charge, Cornelius Howard, a cousin of Mr Storrs, was in March tried for the crime, but he es tablished an alibi. Thus the Gorse Hall tragedy has to be added to the list of unelueidated criminal mysteries. It will be recalled that Mr Storrs waa stabbed to death, after a desperate struggle, by a man who entered Gorso Hall armed with a knife and a revol ver. The murderer left the revolver be hind him, ' and the Crown sought to prove that the weapon had belonged to Wilde when he was serving in the Army abroad. Forty-five minutes after retiring to consider their verdict to-day the jury returned to court and announced that they found the prisoner not guilty, ' All...

A Dubbo Ghost Story^ Recently an account was published in an exchange, detailing a "ghost ad venture" on the Macquarie River. The facta are that 45 years ago an old Irish man, nanied Donowly, was found with ?his throat at Cutthroat (this : name still appears on the lands map, "and the tradition was that tho man's ghost "walked." The story related how two men were camping in the bed of the Maquarie, when they were, rudely- sur prised and put to instant flight ' by a supposed apparition. Another version was that a young fellow, a now chum, who had had the ghost story drummed into him, was passing Cutthroat early one morning when he saw what might have been a ghost dancing on the tree tops. Tying up his horse he crept to the edgeof the river bauk, which gave way, and unceremoniously deposited him among the cimpere, who fled. Inspector R. G. Dulhuniy, well-known in the west, states that he was tho man wholfell down the bank, and that the facts - are as stated. He saw th« reflection of t...
