SCARED BY A MISSIONARY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 April 1895
SCARED BY A MISSIONARY. Bishop Hannington, who ended a ca reer of good works in Africa by winning the crown of martyrdom, once had a re markable escape, which puts the saint and mah-tr in a ery comical light. One day, when taking his walk abroad in the jungles, he saw a pretty little creature, which came fawning up t'o. him like a puppy. Hle picked it up and began to fondle it. Whereupon some natives who were with him howled and bolted. Knowing what was likely to follow, tde panics?triclken dhrkies were liardly to be blamed. The good mnissionary had taken a lion's whelp to his losonm, and the infuriated parents made their appear ance on the scene. The bishop showed equal pluck and presence of mind. Drop ping the cub he put up his umbrella and gallently charged the lion and lioness, dancing and yelling as if he had been one of thie uncoverted pagans celebrating some diabolical rite. Terror at the hideous sight and sounds got the better of paternal and maternal tffection, and ' the gr...

WHAT MAKES BEAUTY? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 April 1895
Beauty is a result of race, of circum cumnstances, such as personal freedom iand mode of life, and ofcontinuous diet. not of intelligence, and still less of the acquisition of knowledge, which latter can only benefit the individual, whose features are fixed past serious shauge be fore study is even begun. A man or woman inherits his or her face:'and mentalthabitude, though it may greatly affect its meaning, can no more alter itsshape than assiduous training can turn a smooth fox-terrier into a wiry kind from Airedale. It may even be doubied, stirange as mnrny may deem the assertion, whether continuous education will produce beauty, whether the growth of intelli gence will even in ages yield the physical result which we notice the a--uthors of Utopias always assume, as if it were a scientificially demonstrable cunsequence of the new society. TLhe most beautiful black race in Africa, a tribe in Nyassaland, on whose looks even: missionaries grow eloquent, are really as ignorant as fish...

Her father the Duke of Kent did not commit legal matrimony until hlie was over fifty years of age.

She had married Leopold of Saxe Cobourg.
