' I know ; that Is why 'I am wonder-, ing about him. One does wonder, you see, about the man one may possibly be going to marry.' ' This harlequinade after the panto mime at the church — for what is a modern smart wedding but a second rate pantomime ?— put them into a good humour, and made them feel that, after all, they had got something for their presents. And so the happy pair passed ?through a dreary rain of rice to the my steries of that Bluebeard's'chamber, the honeymoon.' ... 'The silent processes of even an or dinary, woman's mind — what groat male writer would not give two years of his life to sit with them and watch them, as the poet watches the flight of a swallow or t-he astronomer the processions of the sky ?'

An Enchanted Bed. A queer story about an ' enchanted bed,' eaya the ' Daily Telegraph,' comes from Creusot, the inhabitants of which are in a condition of great ex citement over the affair, while the priests, who are completely mystified, have despatched a 'mission,' for the purpose of holding an investigation and Dronouncinar an opinion in the matter. As usual, it is a girl who is the cause of all Hie wonder, in the present instance, she has only seen fourteen summers, and dwells in a hovel with her' parents. As might be expected, sho is described as being of an extremely nervous tem perament. At night this maid is subject to fits of hysteria, by which, as the tale goes, her couch is affected. By some curious -sympathy it is said to bound along the floor, overcoming the resistance of any one who may endeav our to check it in its wild career. As an instance of the power of thisx'heno nittnal agency, it is asserted that while the bed was on the move with its occu- pant the latter was...

Ear Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 21 September 1898

Ear Trouble. If any ear trouble exists, especially in children, mothers should be careful to interdict sea 'bathing for the reason | that, if salt water is allowed to gain l admittance to the ear, it may set up J violent or fatal inflammation.

When they look at themselves In the truthful mirror they do not permit a softening veil of Imagination torcomo between themselves and thelrr -reflect tion. Well, some women, either In aelfdte .gust or from laziness, think that, the plainness being a fact, it do#s not in the least signify how they dress, or, if granting common cleanliness in person and .clothes, it does not riiatter what the^, latter are like, and they are eanjless about various details connecteft-^ith tneir appearance. s^ This is a great mistake^ They need not .run into the extreme of large ex penditure which they-cannot afford on clothes, or wa»LK a great deal o£ time before the glass, but they should not be careless or indifferent to the truth that they can greatly improve their ap pearance i£ they will but take the trouble to do...

THE HUNCHBACK. A white, one-storeyed house in a narrow quiet street of old Tunis ; a. single window under the iron scroll-work that crowned it in a bold bow ; little columns that joined the wall ; a broad, horse-shoe shaped door, with a large projection formed in a curious pattern ; a heavy knocker that fell upou an iron plate with resonance ; this was the habitation of my friend Hamoud. I knocked ; no one came. I knocked several timcB ; I could hear the sound of the hammer reverberate within ; then nil was silent again. Now for the first time I noticed a peculiar circumstance.
