Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
Xridrf €dvm* An unfortunate printer's error occurred in the Ladies' Letter published in our last issue. In a paragraph referring to Mrs. Langtry U the following sentence :— ' Mrs. Langtry, as is well known.isinWashU-ffton. TJ.S. havins accom panied the champion Hanlan to his western home.' We need hardly say that it is '- Mr.' Langtry who has gone to the States with Hanlas, as tbe context shows that this is eo ; but at tbe tune time it is due to the lady that we should express our regret that her name should have been so awkwardly associated with that ef the great sculler.

PORT v. SOUTH PARK [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
Post v. Sotttw Vi-mr Ifc is match, which was played on the Albertan Oval on Saturday afternoon. May 21, was ex ceedingly interesting, more so probably than any which has yet been played at Alberton. The Forts, smarting under their recent defeat by the Noiwcods the previous week, and remembering witn painiul vividness tne last match they bad with the South Parks, were determined to make a hard fight of it, and to show their toppcrfers that the great exertions that they bad recently made by continuous practice and training to put themselves into good fettle bad not been for nothing. Tae South Parks, although acknowledged aa a trocg club, and although they won tbe pre vious match with the Ports with ease, had not tbe slightest chance against them on the present occasien. They were, as it were, floundering in the mud nearly the whole time. During the two hours' play the Ports had tbe ball in dangerous proximity to their oppo nents' goal for over an hour and a half, the South Parks being...

FEMININE FASHIONS AND FANCIES London, April 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
FEMININE FASHIONS AND FANCIES [Br a Lady.] London, April 8. I must, by repeating it, emphasise the re mark I made some -while back to the effact that embroideries of steel, steel beads, steel lace, and steel ornaments generally, have entirely superseded all other and similar decorations made of eold or silver, as also of the shaded passementerie known as 'moonlight embroidery.' The steel lace now 80 popular toi millinery purposes is not eo heavy as might ha supposed, for tinsel thread is substituted for the beads that by reason o£ their -weight would, break and tear away the net formation of the lace itself, but as the tinsel soon tarnishes it is better whenever practicable to use steel beads for trimmings; that .is, when their weight does not militate too power fully against the advantages of better effect aud greater durability. The price of some of the new steel embroidery is startling. It is very beautifully executed however. The flower designs, with corresponding tendrils aud l...
