T"WHICH SHALL IT BEI Which shall it be ? Which shall it be? I looked at John, John looked at me, And when I found that I must speak, Miy voice seemed strangelylow and weak: "Tell me again what Robert said ;" And then I listening bent my head This is his letter. " I will give A house and land while you shall live, If, in return, from out your seven, One child to me for aye is given."

MARRIAGES OF CELEBRATED MUSICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 June 1894

MARRIAGES OF CELEBRATED MUSICIANS. Weber's wife was Cazuline Brsndt, a talented soubrette, said to have been a good deal spoiled by the public, though she left the stage on her marriage. She brought much happiness to Weber, who was a model husband, and felt that his greatest pleasure in life was to provide for his wife and children to the utmost of his power. Mozart ota first deeply enamoared of Aloysia, secord daughter of Fridolin Weber, a prompter and copyist of Mannheim, but her own attachment did not survive his ab sence for a few months, and she scarcely seemed to remember him on his return. Four years afterwards, he married Weber'e third daoghter, Constanne; but though' she had some o=-ellent qualities she proved to be a thoroughly bad manager, and scarcely the ideal wife for a man so careless about money matters as Mozart was. They began house keeping on next to nothing, and in sixmonths were in serious difficulties, whilst later on the wife suffered from almost constant illn...

WIVES OF FAMOUS COMPOSERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 6 July 1894

WIVEs . F FAM 1OUS COMPOSERtS. Berlioz was twenty-seven years old when he caught the contagion of an en thusiasm for Shakespeare which, thanks mainly to Victor Hugo, was then rasin, in Paris. iierlioz was especially imrressen by the dramotic powers of Harr-it Smith. son, an Irish actress, who was a member of an English company then performing in the French ,apital. As "Ophelia "and "Juliet," she took Paris by storm. She became the rage; but what, in the minds of other men, was only admiration, be came with Berlioz a violent and almost devouring passico. His poetic imag.ina tion endowed her with a thousand charms she did not possess, and made her for him as it nere, a personification of the trans cendent genius of Shakespeare. He re solved to sin her for himself. His first stei in this direction was to go to great expense in giving a concert at which he hoped she would be present, but she was noL and Berlioz "-as reduced to temperary despair. Later on he met her at a concert rehearsa...

SOCIAL CONDITION OF THE ANGLO-SAXONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 6 July 1894

SOCIAL OONDITION OF' THE ANiGLO-SAXONS. At the head of.the Anglo-Saxon nation stood the Cyning (from cunnan, 'to know '). lie was elected by the Great Council from among the relatives of the late King; and was generally chosen on account of his fit Less fo, the office. The name ' Queen,' and the honours of royalty, were conferred on the wife of the King, until Eaddurga, Queen of Wessex, forfeited all distinctions by poi soning her husband. From that time the Anglo-Saxon Queens bore no title but 'th lady'; and none except Judith, wife of Ethelwulf, received the crown, or sat on the throne beside her husband. Indeed, in style and position the wife of the Anglo Saxon monarchs resembled the lady rather than the Queen of our day. The monk In gulf tells us that, when he was a boy, Edith, wife of the Confessor, would often stop him as he came from school, make him repeat his grammar lesson; and, if he did well, would give him a piece of silver and send him to the pantry. Next to the King w...

COLOUR FANCIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 6 July 1894

COLOUR FANCIES. The symbolism of colours has been re. cognized from the earliest times, when white signified purity; yellow, wisdom; and violet, mourning. Green, blue, and red were the emblems of faith, hope, and charity. The Mloors of Spain had a " colour " language, and even in theco Un sentimental drys, a variety of fancies, quaint, grave, and gay, cling to the shades moat affected i. daily life. When Tintotetto. the great Venetian painter, was asked what were the prettiest solours he replied, "Black and white." Hrgsr-h's favour~te colour, on the other hand, was sky-blue, while Reynold's was deep crimson or violet. Most European nations mourn in black, but their example is not universally fol lowed, for in Egypt yellow is the mourn ing colour : in China, for a near relative, white for the first year, blue for the second, black for the third, Queens of Frange formerly wore white a-s mourning for their roya" consorts, and it does not appear to have been the custom to don black upon...
