.THE 'NBW.. EMPRE 8 OF GEB (raLL MALL aszTrr .) To Englishmen, Sootohmen, and Irishmen it must be specially interesting to know what can be known regarding the state of German feeling towards the Englishwoman who has just become Empress of Ger manay. They know that she was by far the olnverest and one of the best of the Queen's obildren, that she married an honourable and an honoured man, whom it sl believed she really loved, and who truly loved her. Their family life has been happy a td beautiful; her In fluence over him has been great, and it has been all for good.

AFTER BISON IN THE JUNGLE. (ST. JAMES'S BUDGET.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 5 May 1888

AFTER BISON IN THE JUNGLE. - (sT. JAMES'S UDGET.) The following account of an expedition after bison in the jungle comes from a young officer In India: Half the charm of a ten days' shooting trip, such as I am on, consists in a feeling of utter isolation from human life and of alone communion with nature. Shooting is certainly the object of one's coming, and is the raison d'&sre of the trig ; but ois not the powder and shot which gives me the most pleasure. Hero I am quite alone-not an Englishman within thirty miles-spending ten hours of the day in a forest of huge trees and extraordinary creepers, with real savages for my companions I Of course, I know that In Europe (especially in Switzer land) you all go and see the beautiful spots of nature-more beautiful to my mind than any in this part of the world; but you generally have to make an expedition of it and go three or four of you together. You cannot all admire the same bit of scenery in the same way, and so you take to d...

THE ADVANCE OF ELEOU TBIOITY . ITS APPLICATION TO DOMESTIC USE. (UELBOUO?NE "DAXIL TELEGRAPHA") A day or two ago we explained the wonder. ful progress that had been made during the pant twelve months in electric lighting, and showed how what was only a few years ego nothing more than a mere toy had been de veloped until it has become almost a house. hoidnneoeoity. Edsloon has called electricity the future power of the world, mea..i.u thereby that at will one day be brought into nese with every want of our daily life, and it does not teem at all unlikely that his prophecy will be fulfilled, even within his own time. It seems rbasonable to believe this when one takes into account the almost insuperable difficulties which have been overcome, the complications which have been made plain, mainly by the united labours of dis coverers in all parts of the world. What one man falls to find out another comes across with the greatest ease; and with the facilities which exist for the interchang...

Grant is a shrewd, hard headed, much observant Boot, who has done a good deal of journalsletio work in his time. and who has considerable experience of Egypt and the Egyptians. We had a pleasant chat about the prospects of the Protoectorate. Mr. Grant is a Liberal, and has no objection to the withdrawal of all our garrison from the Delta, but he is as convinced as any Jingo of the absolute necessity for our remaining lords paramount of the land. "You do not need a single soldier, but Egypt must never pass from the shadow of youreword.

A CHAT ABOUT DRESSING-GOWNS [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 5 May 1888

A CHAT ABOUT DRESSING-GOWNS A writer in "Farm and Home"says: A dressing-gown which. is worn for comfort should be adapted to the end for whioh it is Intended. Of those gowns which are worn for show I shall say nothing ; they are altogether things apart, and not to be con sidered in this category. A warm, snug dreassinggown, which is soft and comfort able, and 'sunfliciently large, is .a luxury which all women do well toindulge in. There is no occasion to spend a large sum upon it, and once well made, and properly fitted, it Will last for years. The dressing-gowns that I am going to describe to you are uch as you may wear when one of the children is sickly at night, and can rest nowhere but in mother's arms, or when husband or son must rise betimes, and go out in the cold morning, and you will, of course, Ilke to see that they have a comfortable meal before they start, and by slipping on shoes and stooklugs, a warm urder-garment, and your cosy dressing-gown, you can just manage to ha...

STHELADIES' , COLUMN. Br VrvA. 1 .BOUT LETTER-WRITING, The art ci letter-writing, along with. that of conversation, has been said to be lost, in these days of post cards and telegrams. The men and women 'of the present day have no time either to indulge in those con versaitonal epigrams that tall so strangely upon our ears in the recent revivals of the old-world plays of the eighteenth century in Melbou~r e,' or to take pains, to polish and re-touoh their letters, making them models of composition instead of care less.sorawls, There are however, a few points with regard to businees and ddhbdly letters that I should like to bring under the notice of my readers. Speaking first of letters written on business, the majority of my correspondents appear to forget that the first desideratum in hand Twrting is legibility. This is is particularly QOeseary in the writing of a business letter. Some of my correspondents, probably the younger ones, sacrifice legibility to style. They curve their ...

The Origin of Petroleum. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 5 May 1888

Tho Origin of PetroleumO Professor nIedeleef, in "Engineering" has advanced the theory that petroleum is of ml?eral origin, and that its proluotion is going on, and may continue almost indefinitely. He has succeeded in making ft artificially by a similar proceas to that which he believes is going on in the earth, and experts find it imposeible to distinguieh between the natural and the manufactured article. His hypothesis is that water foinds its way below the cruet of the earth, and then meote with carbides of metals, particularly of irone in a growing state. The water is decomposed into Its con stituent gasee; the oxygen unites with the iron, while the hydrogen takes up the carbon, and ascends to a higher region, where part of it is condensed into mineral oil, and partre maine as natural gas, to escape where It can find an outlet. or to remain stored at great pressure until a borehole ie put down to pro vide it a passage to the surface. Oil-bearingstrata occurs in the vioinity of ...

Thb women- have their share of beauty compared with their sisters of other races, some of them being very lovely, Behold an oval face lit.by soft, dark, liquid eyes under a broad, low forehead, the nose slightly aquilino, with delicate out nostrils, a ourved, sensitive mouth and small well-turned chin, and this crowned by a wavy mass of long. fine hair reaching below the waist.

A TELL-TALE MIRROR. (WORLD.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 5 May 1888

A . TELL-TALE MIRROR. (WORLD.) Mrs. Reggie Seymoor was as pretty a little woman as ever walked on a pair of high Loust Quince heels, Her beauty did not strike one dumb, nor did people get on chairs to see her dance-a triumph vouchsafed to the beautiful Ganniogs, if the chroniolers of a hundred years ago are to'be believed. She was, neverthel-es, immensely admired, and neople very readily fell in love with her cherub face and laughing blue eyes; as for her colouring, one line ,of poetry will hit it off better . than quires of prose. Like the 'Queen of Samothrace,' 'God, making roses made her face.' When we add that she had also a lovely figure, and possessed what in France is called 'charms, it is no wonder that she was always surrounded by crowds of admirers, and that her life was a kindof triumphal progress. If all men fell under her sway, she in her turn loved them all, but not very much; and if she was abused by some old women who let no one off, still even they could not really ...
