The following extracts from English papers will, we hope, prove acceptable to our lady readers : — Speaking of fashions a correspondent .of ths London Ztaity Telegraph saya: — A very de cided change has been wrought in the sleeves, which ere generally 'conspicuous by their ab seiice,' as they say here somewhat illagically. The bomUonnesleeye, so fashionable a shorttime since, is reserved for the half-high or high transparent bodices of the demi- toilette, and bail dresses are made simply with shoulder straps, more or lees decorated. When this ia the case the armhole must not ba cat out bo. much as usual, acd one or tiro little darts are required to enclose the .arm securely.

AN AFFECTISG SCENE. The Rev. James Lyall, the well-known clergyman in charge of the Presbyterian Church in Flinders-street, attended the scene of the coaflagation while one of oar reporters was pursuing hia enquiries. He waa moBt anxionB to gain information wirri rporsrrl tn rnn friond TVTr_ Tanlln. and stated that it was only yesterday morale g that he had left Mrs. Taplin and the members of her family at Poiat Maclesy. There seems to be not the slightest doubt that Mr. Taplin, who had assisted Mr. Hambly in waking up the other lodgers, could have easily saved his life only that, recollecting something he had missed or fearing that he had not pro perly awakened somebody in the estab lishment, he went back, and was suffocated before aid conld be vouchsafed to him.

THE STATEMENT OF A LODGER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

THE STATEMENT OF A LODGER. A gentleman who has been staying m the Coffee Palace gives rather a sensa tional account of the manner In which, the lodgers were able to escape. Hd states that he received the alarm, as he judges, about half-past 3 o'clock. When he came out of his room he had to walk through the flames, but knowing that there was a fire escape at the back of the premises he made his way thither, and advised everybody whom he saw to follow him. To use his own wcrds, ' I put up my hands to prevent getting burnt, but, as you see, one of my fingers was rather badly burnt. Some body passed me down the stairway, and I called out to him to go with me right to the back. He did not, however, follow my advice. With regard to Mr. Taplin, I understand that he was the first man called, but I saw nothing of him daring the period of our escape. As a matter of fact, I do not know Mr. Taplin, but I can quite understand that he was not aware of the facilities that existed for leaving the b...

THE S1LBON TROUPfl ON THE OVAL. These who visited tbe Adelaide Oval on Monday evening were treated to some of the most sensational trapeze and acrobatic feats that have ever been seen in this city, and although the attendance was large at the open ing performance, there is no doubt as the marvellous nature of the entertainment be comes talked about the crowds will increase from night to night. The arrangements made eo tbat the spectators might see everything to advantage were very complete. A large platform about six feet high was erected in front of the grand stand, and on this the tumbling and bar feats were par foimed.
