The Home. Children's Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
The Home. Children's Eyes. Do not let the baby lie in the sun, even asleep, with the face turned up. The eyes need much care during hot, sunny weather, even in adults. Those of children should be shielded from the burning mid-day sun. If the mail cart or perambulator lias no hood, fasten an open sunshade on. Children with wi'ak eyes (says an expert) should nol be taken to the seaside for holidays, but to the country. The glare of the sun on the sand and sea tends to increase the eye trouble, If it does not sometimes cause il ; but the restful green of the grass and trees will tend to strengthen tlie weak sight.
Nervous Men and Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
Nervous Men and Women. Dr. Duffield, the celebrated London specialist on nervous diseases, says that it is a disputed question as to whether women or men are most nervous. In emergencies women are generally to be more depended upon than men, but when the danger is over they are sure to col lapse. They have uot anything like so much control over their reelings as men, and tbis is due not only to physiological differences, but to differences in life and training. The doctor says be does not have nearly as many nervous patients among women as formerly. It takes a great shock to upset the woman of to day, be finds, and he thinks that a de cade of the kind of training she is now receiving may entirely eliminate such complaints as hysteria, and make her as strong-nerved as her brothers.
With Penalties. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
With renames. It seems to be an indisputable fact that the rapid advance during the last fifty years in what we are pleased to call civilisation is steadily hearing fruit in a rich crop of new diseases of the body and disorders of the mind. As fast as the progress in medical, as well as general, science enables us to combat, and often conquer, the old diseases, the habits and conditions of modern life seem to give birth to new and undream ed-of maladies. ?Railway travelling- is responsible for frequent cases of nervous debility and exhaustion. Cycling is a boon that we could ill dispense with, yet there Is a distinct danger of the rider acquiring a bad style, and developing that ugly deform ity known as the ' cyclist's back.' Even typewriting has produced a new complaint that is sometimes called the 'typist's disease.' The .operator, in consequence of overstrain and long ap plication In spelling out words over the keyboard, gets attacks of a kind of temporary mental paralysis, which...

The driver of the donkey was the chief witness, and was so much bullied by the defendant's counsel that he lost his head, and was reprimanded by the Judge. However, the counsel for the plaintiff on re-exam Ination, seeing gleams of the witness's recovery from his confusion, a«7Jl1^J JIUJl IU UCObllVC LJ1C JJl-g*JLJUJ] tJl the waggon and donkey. ; After much pressing, at last he said : ' Well, my lord Judge, I'll tell you as how it happened.' Turning to his counsel, he said : ' You'll suppose you are the wall.' 'Just so, go on. I am the wall, very good.' ' Tes, sir, you are the wall.' Then changing his position a little, he said, I ' I ain the waggon.' , . ' Yes, very good, you are the wag gon,' put In the Judge encouragingly. The witness then looked at the Judge, and hesitating at first, but' with a low bow' and an expression of sudden de epalr, broke out with :...

A Blouse Wrinkle, ?Some dressmakers will tell you (says the 'Queen') ihat blouses are ijuite out of date, but t.t? certainly is not the case; the drawback to such bodices, however, is tlu hard division of colour at the waist.

How to Put on a Hat. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 21 May 1898
How to 1 ut on a Hat. First, of course, you must learn to do your hair properly, not In a jug-handle knot, -but in a simple coil, much in the shape of a Greek knot, set about halfway up the, iback of the head. Your fringe must be small and lightly1 curled, the remainder of- your hair brushed back though not tightly, and well waved. Then if you propose to wear a sailor hat, set it -firmly on -your head, keeping it in its place- by means of a black elastic; neither tilt It over your eyes, iiui uij un.- l'uck ol your neck, out let it set firmly, precisely on the top of your head. Then if you wear a hat which Is turned up at the back, it should be put well forward on your head, not show ing too much of the fringe. You can always prevent it resting too heavily on your curl by having a little bandeau of velvet tacked into the front part of the crown.

Raiment The latest crinoline Idea is a cag-e of light wire, not circular air round, but flattened in front.

Not that it Is specially elegant or specially comfortable (says a lady corruspundent), | though I always h^ar old laJies.say that i the hoop ivas very nice to walk in, and i Itept your skliis on' your feet, but simply because it is new.
