MIRBOO. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
MiRBOO. A local resident, Constable Harlick, has just taken out a provisional patent for a novel method of providing boots with soles and heels of an economical charecter.

The following notes gleaned from Har per's Bazar consist of practical advice to correspondents and are adapted to the wants of every day: A young widow wears English crape trimmings on dresses and capes. There is no prescribed time for wearing the crape oil over the face. It is an unwholesome hion that should be abandoned soon, the milliner draping the crape to hang at the back and providing a thin veil for the face. A black border is added to cards and sta tionery. The husband's first name may be retained if the widow chooses and indeed is now preferred to the old plan of using her own name. Fin de slecle literally means the end of the century, but its accepted meaning is "up to date." Chic means style. Cards need not be sent to the "at home.' If you attend, you will leave two of Mr. Smith's cards and one of your own. Asub sequent call is not necessary. Cards arc sent to teas (where you do not attend) dur ing the specifi...
