CmnniemaL WEEKLY EPITOME. The Chronide Offices, Friday evening, November 8. (tKvf.tiat. Merchandise. There has been a fair amount of business - transacted in the open import markets during the past week, but chiefly in small lines, buyers ?showing little inclination to take up parcels. 3?he continued dry weather is causing country ? Uwders to be curtailed, and business generally in the north is dull. West Australian trade is -brisk, and good orders are coming forward by each mail. Town trade is fairly good and general distributing businessis brisk. Stocks are sot large, but are sufficient for all present market requirements, values are in many cases Advancing, and prices generally are better than for some time past.

FASHIONS IN MILLINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
FASHIONS IN MILLINERY. We take the following from WeigeVs Journal of Fashions of November 1 : — As the constant topic of discourse on fashion is of the brightness of the colors being worn we are naturally diverted to this when we begin to speak of the millinery of the season. II colors are varied in hue and arrangements in dress their feature is concentred here, and as heterogenous are they in collection as a flower garden robed in its spring attire. Indeed look ing over the headgear of a fashionable crowd you might well be persuaded, with little of illusion, that it is parterres of flowers of the most brilliant hues to be culti vated upon which you gaze. And certainly we have never worn shapes or styles of trimming in which more license was allowed. Hats are larger and broad garnitures are quite invariable. An instance of a specimen hat is of shot bronze and heliotrope straw ; on each aide and drooping over the brim are black feathers and shorter ones go to the top, a tinted osprey...
Ladies' Column. QUEEN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
Safe' Column. QUEEN VICTORIA. In a sketch of 'The Modern Monarch,' in the new number of the Woman at Home, reference is made to the great affection for the young Queen which showed itself among all classes. Charles Dickens, we are told, was one of the youths who had a severe attack of Queen fever; happily he recovered, or we should not have received anything from his pen beyond the Pickwick Papers. His youthful aberration must have come to the great novelist's memory with amusement when, at the climax of his fame, he was commanded to lunch with the Queen at Windsor, and received from her hands a copy of her Majesty's ' Tour in the High lands,' inscribed with the words, 'From the humblest to the most distinguished author in England.' At to coronation the ceremonies lasted more than four hours, and throughout the Queen played her part with wonderful composure. Care, says the same writer, had been taken to provide a crown suitable for her small head, but no one had thought about re duc...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
AN APOLOGY BY MESSRS. J. FROS SARD & CO. We have recently made ? a certain statement regarding our Cavour Cigars (which are now sold everywhere at eight for Is.), to which ob jection has been taken in certain quarters. We said that, by buying the Cavour at ljd. each, the smoker received a cigar equal in quality to the usual 3d. cigars, which statement we now retract, as since then the opinion of good judges has led us to tbe conclusion that our Cavours are infinitely superior in quality to any 3d. cigar— in fact they compare favorably with many 6d. ones. For mildness, aroma, and good manufacture they have never been approached at their price, and the sudden and general demand for them is the best proof of this. We beg, in conclusion, to thank the in telligent public, who, by patronising our Cavours, have done justice to us and to their own judgment.— J. Fbossabd & Co., Payeme, Switzerlajw1 ' Px201:193
