LONDON LOVE SCENES. SOME STRANGE CONTRASTS. 1.—THE PINK CAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 24 February 1906

LONDON LOVE SCENES. SOME STRANGE CONTRASTS. 1.— THE PINK CAKE. 'What would you liko now?' asked Clarence, very stiffly. They had been to a matinco, and tho little cloud had gathered when Gladys observed that Courtico Pounds had the nicest voice she ever heard. This was certainly tactless of her, seeing that Clarence had just been through a course of singing les sons — three guineas the sot of ten. 'Nothing more, thank you,' said Gladys, preparing to put on her gloves. As a matter of fact, sho wanted one of- those little cakes with pink sugar all over it just about as badly as anybody ever wanted any thing. In dealing with men, how ever, it was necessary to begin as you meant to go on. Clarence, in short, must be humbled. To her dismay he took one of tlie pink cakes himself, and, judging by tho way ho crumbled the sugar all over his overcoat, was enjoying it. ''I hope I'm not keeping you,' re marked Gladys, frcczingly. 'Not at all, thanks.' He finished the cake, and actually had the ...

SHOT HER LOVER. DESPERATE MURDER BY A GIRL. SUICIDE OF THE MURDERESS. Another of those 'drames passionnels* which are of such frequent occurrence in , Paris, says the 'Daily Telegraph' cor- 1 lespondent, has resulted In tho deaths of a young man and a young girl, very re spectably connected and highly esteemed by all their friends and acquaintances. A few months ago they happened to meet at a little party, and mutual incli nation soon developed into a warmer sen timent. The couple contrived to have a number of clandestine interviews, and all went smoothly for a while. The only person who had any idea of what wai going on was the youth's mother, who, like so many French mothers, somehow contrived to initiate herself into her son s secrets. Tho worthy lady greatly disapproved of this flirtation, and when, a month ago, her husband died, she renewed her re monstrances, this time with such effect that the young man told tho object of his affections that they must part, as henceforth he m...

To-night (Saturday) Dan Barry's Dramatic Company will give a grand farewell return performance in the School of Arts, Mullumbimby, when will be played the splendid comedy Drama 11 For a -Woman's Sake.' If tins stage slory comes up to the standard of what reports say of it, the piece will prove worth cultivat ing. It is a play which, in construc tion, ? is said' to bo an entirely new departure in the way of plot and incident. Throughout it contains the sensations of melodrama, tho deep intensity and pathos of tragedy, and the rollicking humor of broad comedy.

'Heraldo' of Madrid), finding the confi- . dence trick business getting slow, hit upon the idea of playing the detective, with the object of extorting money by ! blackmail.

A POSSIBLE SOLACE. THE POOR MAM'S ORCHID HOUSE. The notion of a poor man growing oi chids seems fantastic, but that, a writer in the 'Corr.hill Magazine' points out, is only because people arc so ill-informed upon tho subject. It appears to be ac cepted as a working rule by speculative builders that everyone able to pay more than L40 a year for a house in the suburbs wants a 'bit of glass.' Sup pose a man at 1.50 yearly rent, ritli one of these ramshackle greenhouses thrown in, should dream of filling it with cool orchids instead .of pelargoniums and odds and ends, what would tbe ecccntric fancy cosL him? At Protheroe and Morris's, without delay ot- difficulty, he could buy n hundred crispums and pescatorcis, es tablished plants, bearing, or certain to bear, good spikes .for L3. Another sove reign or two, judiciously expended, would provide him with a selection of L,yeastes. Masdevallias, and others. For that ex penditure of capital his little house would be full.
