The twilights in Australia are short, but very sweet ; they are gold and russet while tlicy last and precious with faint perfume. The woman by the low fire rocked slowly backwards and forwards, her hands clasped on her xvp. There was a little klnlc in the rocking chair ; the soothing little sound recurred every :few seconds with the. monotony of a lullaby; it hod put six babies to sleep in its day. She was slight, daintily made, and hor grey hair was line and wavy ; her eyes were beautiful, lier forehead intellec tual.

ARISTOCRATIC TOUTS. Touting is always going on' in society. It takes many forms, ranging from tlie comparatively venial to the flagrantly dishonest. Women, on the whole, make better touts than men, partly because they are quicker witted, partly because they are allowed by public opinion "a much greater audacity r of statement. They have been, known to poach on such exclusively masciilihe preserves as wine and cigars with no small suc cess; but frocks and hats, gloves, veils, unci such etceteras are their special ! goods. -"Grand Magazine."
SHOULD WHITE WED YELLOW? JAPAN WANTS MIXED MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
SHOULD WHITE WISD YELLOW! JAPAN WANTS MIXED MARRIAGES. An address delivered at the Nippon Club in New York by Mr Aoki, the Japanese Ambassador, urging his countrymen to marry American women, is typical of many rcoent Japanese ut terances to the same effect. Mr Aoki congratulated those members of the club who had American wives. A Japanese reporter's translation of his speech included this remark: "Make yourselves worthy of the love of millionaires' daughters, and when your fathers-in-law become aware of your ■merits they will asssist you in every way possible." The advantages of such marriages from the-Japanese point of view and their drawbacks for Americans are noticed in a Tetter from a Tokio residen t (Ryogoku) in the "Japan Times" of lOch November:— - "It is generally admitted by the Japan ese themselves that; physically, they are inferior to their western neighbors. On an average a Japanese adult is about the size of a sixteen-year-old boy in America. The offspring resulting fr...
WAR TALK IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
V/AR TALK IN GERMANY. The throats of a simultaneous war with France and England, which are so openly made in the press of .the latter country, need cause no alarm in Ger many. Certainly the combined fleets of England and France, can checkmate the German Navy, and temporarily paralyse our trade. But not at sea, but on land, -will this war be finally decided. And in that respect Germany need not have the slightest fear. - - Vossische Zeitung, Berlin.

FISHING FOR LONDONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 4 February 1910
FISHING FOR LONDONERS. One of- the greatest boons to the work ins classes of London would be to re stock the "London River" with fish. If the Corporation and the County Council would see eye to eye in this matter, and ' expenditure of a few hundred pounds annually would make sport as certain as fishing ever is, and this would induce members of the most, respectable classes I of our workers to spend much of their weekly holidays in the open air.— "County Gentleman."
