FULFILMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898

I wonder if, when Earth's foundations Crumble into dust away, Will the things men hold most pre cious, In God's thought hold any sway. Will our strivings and achievements That in life we prize so dear, Hopes, ambicion, trust, and loDging, Have an end upon our bier. Will a spirit, born with talent, That has cleft its way to fame, From its treasur'd goal be riven, Feeble as the hour if came. When a man has gathered knowledge, Weighted down with many cares ; Will his gleaming pass for ever, When he pays the debt of years. As when e'er a tender mother, Lays a childish effort by ; That her boy may note his progress, See 'tis worth his while to try. So when Earth's last day is breaking, And oach man is bade depart, Our ideals perfected wait us, In the paradise of art. " HOPE MANIFOLD. , Pavkes.

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898

On Wednesday of last week this great and glorious colony of ours celebrated its 110th birthday. No one seemed to pay any more attention to the colony than usual, but it is scarcely necessary to add that we all, or nearly all, donned our Sunday clothes and assumed a swagger air and let the whole world know that we were out for a holiday. The war clouds, the Federation Convention, the coming fiscal fight at the general election, and everything else were shot aside for the time being so as not to interfere with the day's multi tudinous amusements. In his new book Mark Twain says " Aus tralian holidays are mainly work ing men's holidays," and a careful survey of the crowds that pour forth to enjoy a real good razzle dazzle time on such occasions justifies the great humorous phil osopher's remarks. Mark further thinks that this is due to the fact that in Australia (principally in South Australia) " the working man is sovereign ; his vote is the desire of the politician—indeed it is the v...

Women's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898

[By t( Melita."! It is raining softly, so eoftly that one could go forth and scarcely feel it. The air is cool and fresh, and has been for the last three days. One feels inclined to settle com fortably in a pretty, cosy room, and rest snugly in a corner with an all absorbing book. I feel that way myself, and the picture has come before me of a hundred bright, pretty, cosy rooms where I would like to read that book. You see dress is all very well and needful to every self respecting woman, but what is the best dressed woman if she leaves a home in keeping with her toilettee, A woman's home is the mirrow to her friends in which they see her ex cellencies or her failings. So for this letter 1 would like to say a word or two in regard to some of these hundred homes of which I am thinking. The most comfortable and attrac tive homes are really those m which simplicity is most apparent. I purpose giving some ideas of making a bedroom pretty, but before doing so let me describe one of the m...
