A MODEL TOWER OF SILENCE. (PALL MALL OAZTrTE.) The Berlin Anthropological Museum has reooeived a present of a very' valuable and interesting nature, through the genero-ity of a Persian banker, Sir Jameadji Jijibbal, a model of one of the "towers of silence" in which the Parsees bury their dead; As. cording to the religion of the Zoroastrians .the three sacred elements, fire, ear b, and water, are not allowed to be desecrated- by dead bodies, which, accordingly, are given to birds of prey. For this purpose, high round towers "are built on the hill., which have a circumference of 300ft At the top of the tower Is a platform elopirg towards the centre, where a cistern l5Ott deep is placed. The platform is divid-d into three equal parts, set apart for the bodies of men, women, and children. An soon as the naked corpses have been placed, flooks of vultures, which are always hover ing round, begin their ghastly meal, and before long only the bare bones ae 'left These are swept into the cis...

Under the Snow. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 28 April 1888
Under the Snow. Deep, deep, deep, Quickly, so none should know, She buried her warm love stealthily Under the winter snow. For he had coldly said, Coldly and carelesly, ' Bury your love, or let it live; Is is all the same to me. She tore it out of her heart I She crashed it within her hand I, It oried to him in its agony . For help, but he came not; and. It struggled within her grasp; It feoaht with her woman s will; It kneelod to her woman's pride with tears; Then silent it lay and still. She knew that it was not dead' But she said : 'It soon- will die, Buried under the winter snow, Under'the winter sky.' Deep deep, deep, Quickly, so none should know She buried her warm love stealthily Under the winter snow. Then with her murderous hands She raised up she heavy stone Of Silence over her buried love, Lest the world should hear is moan: She thought, when she turn'd away, Some day he may see this grave And say: ' The woman I thought so, weak, How strong she was, and brave I' Throb, th...
CHANGING NAMES AT MARRIAGE. (ECHO.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 28 April 1888
CHANGING NAMES AT MAR RIAGE. (acne.) Mrs. F. Fenwiok Miller has reprinted from the "Lady's Plotorial" an article in which she expounds the grievance under which she says women suffer who, having made their maiden name famous, are com pelled to eciohange it for another at mar' riage. "M. E. Edwards," for instance, is not, and for many years has not been, what many people describo as the "real name" of this well-known artist. Miss Edwards married some twenty years ago a gentleman named Freer, who died; and alter some years of widowhood she re.married with Mr. J. C. Staples, whose name, so= cording to prevailing custom, she would now ?ear, and doubtless does bear in private life. The woman's personalty has been twice absorbed in a new cognomen; the artist could not afford to part with her identity in this fashion, and as an artist we still know "Mary Ellen Edwards." The familiar. monogram "A.C.," or the fuller signature of A. COlaxton, is the maiden name which continues to be used by t...

THE BODY OF ALEXANDER. (EVENING STANDARD.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 28 April 1888
?'EE BODY OF ALEXANDERL (vrianjvo swirilvDaSR3zh.' :The report that there has been discovered , at "Saida, In Syria,' a saroophaguos "ons taning the body" of Alexander the Great, is one of those rnmoure which it may be judfofous to regard with some amount of In. credulity.

AvivAolous young girl had been in the habit of wearing thin abhero, and caught a cold in coneequence. Her mother told .the doter secretly, and asked him to advise her not to wear them. When the young lady was unshered into his presence he requested her to give her tongue the usual outdoor exer olPe, and he examined it attentively. ' Yes, I thought so,' snid he with a shake of bhi head, 'you have been wearing thin ahoce, and have caught what we dootoro call a "' thinahoo" cold. Now, you must leane off wearing them at once, and take the medicinee I am about to prnaorlbo faithifuly and nooording to diroection.' le wrote an Ino cent'proecription, and was about to leave the houoe, when his patient called him back and etartled him by a saying : 'Since yon were so clever in discovering a thin-shoo cold by looking at my tongue, will you be kind enough to take olff my shoes, look at my febt and tell me it my hat's on straight I'
Alexander's Dust. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 28 April 1888
Aloxandor's Dust. Every one knows (says the "Pall Mall Gazette") Hamlet's celebrated conundrum " Why may not imagination trace the noble dust of Alexander till he finds it stopping a bang-hole !' and everyone has hitherto had to answer, "I give it up." Henceforward, however, our Hamlets must bridle their funereal fancies. The noble dust. of Alexander is not stopping a bong-bole nor even scaling an amphora. It is safe in his sarcophagus at Saida, in Syria, and. will doubt soon be safer still in an arcbheological museum. The evidence of identification is not yet to hand, but Renter is dogmatic and scepticism would be at least premature. The hung-hole, fortunately, is not essential to Hamlet's argument. "The earth which'kept the world in awe" is still more ignobly inert in the sarchophagus than on the beer-barrel. At anyrate, Hamlet has still "Imperious Cresar. dead and turned toclay" on which to moralise, though if archaeology goes on at its present rate we may expect seon to have the...

GENERAL GORDON ON POLITICS AND SOCIETY. (PALL MALL GAZETTE.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 28 April 1888
e GENERAL GORDON ON POLITICS AND SOOIETY. (PALL MALL GAZETTE.) In General Gordon's newlyvpublished " Letters to His Slister" (Maomillan), the referonces to mundano politics are rare, but Sthere are some, and those of considerable o interest. 1 THE DECADENCE OF ENGLAND. Here, for instance, is General Gordon's views of the prospects of England: " "I declare the products of Great Britain have terribly fallen.off. You can never get a good thing nowadays. You were and are Sncrested in the Eastern Question; but, my dear Augusta, I feel sure it is nearly over with us. I hope it may come after our day, but I think we are on the decline. It is c money, money, money with us. We put lime in our cotton, and are full of tricks in every trade. You may see it yourself in I the things you buy. It may be fancy, but to my mind, for the last fifteen years our products have deteriorated. Now. falsehood in trade shows want of morality in the nation, and when morality-that Is, honesty -is lacking, the en...
