A BACHELOR MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

A Bachelor Maid. Once there lived a bachelor-maiden, Years and years ago (?), And her mind with truth was laden, But her heart was cold as snow. For she thought with good old Plato She could live alone, So she smiled on many a suitor, But her heart was hard as 3tone. Came a bachelor-man a-suing. For her friendship true. This, alas ! was her undoing. As it might have been with you ! For her friendship still he sued her (Such a simple thing !), Till before she knew, he wooed her — Wooed her with a friendship ring ! Now, although she's fond of Plato, Her cold heart's grown warm, And her theories of living Have imbibed a wondrous charm. For she says, ' 'Tis human nature, Spite of Plato's pen. JSIen were made for loving women, ?*-?' WomeiMnadc for loving men.'

RABBIT BREEDING-GROUND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

RABBIT BREEDING-GROUND. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — When the Government proclaimed Teetulna station, or rather part of it, a gold field, they appear also to have proclaimed it a breeding-ground for rabbits. There ie a broad watercourse running through Nellinghoo, Koonamore, and Winnininnie, forming about seven miles below Teetulpa township a deep creek. ?- The water from another deep creek at Bimbowrie here joins, and bunny is making a Teetulpa goldfields— through those stations. What has the Government done to keep down the nuisance? Nothing. The question now arises, if tho Government compel the pastoral lessees to destroy vermin on their leaseholds, why shouldn't the latter compel the Govern ment to destroy vermin on their adjoining Government lands ?— I am, &c, SUBSCRIBER. Koonamore, October 4, 1895.

THE SAVINGS BANK AND THE GOVERNMENT GUARANTEE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

THESAVINGS BANK ANDTHE GOVERN MENT GUARANTEE. TO THE EDITOR. -\ ? . ? r Sir— In reviewing thereoent vote taken on the State Advances Bill and the Government guarantee of the Savings Bank I cannot help wondering at the strange inconsistences the changes of time bring forth. Whether those inconsistencies are caused by a genuine change of public mind or the baneful effect of party votes my readers must judge for themselves. 11 is put a i«w j«ara ago biuuu ui« uanKB throughout the colonies were daily suspending payment, one financial crash following another with alarming effect on those who were unfortunate enough to have theiv deposits thus locked up and shut out of their use. While all this was going on the depositors in the Savings Bank quietly smiled and Baid their investments were perfectly safe, as they were deposited in a Government bank, whic could not fail unless the whole country failed. Such was the erroneous impression cherished by at least three-fourths of the Savings Bank ...

LONDON FASHIONS AND FRIVOLITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

LONDON FASHIONS AND FRIVOLITIES. 'A.H.,' writing in the London Queen of August 31 says : — There are many new fashions m jewellery, and it would be difficult to find a better example of the latest modes than those which are to be seen at Messrs! Wilson & Gill's, Regent-street. They are mounting diamonds in single stone for butterflies, giving a most Iacelike effect, as there are open spaces between each brilliant. Turquoises are blended with diamonds in numerous fashions, and there is nothing prettier than a spray of marguerites formed of brilliants with tur quoise in the centre, the buds being formed of these stones. This spray could be divided into four distinct brooches if desired, and the design is certainly lovely. We still affect Bpiders, crabs, &c, as ornaments, though their fair wearers would fly away in alarm if they came upon them in the flesh. A lovely spider in diamonds with the body in black EearL and a crab with diamond claws and uge pearl body, or blen...

RUBIDIUM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

RUBIDIUM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Referring to a paragraph in your issue of the 4th inst.' relating to a discovery of rubidium in the far north, it may interest many of your numerous readers to know that this metal is widely diffused in nature, but in very small quantities. It is generally asso ciated with caesium. Itubidium was dis covered in I860 by Bunsen and Kirch off during fhAi'r invnKHirni.inn on th« Knectra. of artififHai flames, produced by igniting the residue obtained by evaporating the water of a Gorman mineral spring. Since this discovery its presence has i-een recognised in many sub stances, including lepidolite (a variety of mica), beetroot, tobacco, and in the ashes of a reat variety of plants, Metallic rubidium is of a silver-white color, and tarnishes rapidly on exposure to the air ; in a few moments it takes fire spontaneously, at 10° C. it is soft like wax, at 38'5° C. it 'molts, and when thrown upon water it takes fire,' and burns with a flame in appearance almost e...

KNICKERBOCKERS VERSUS SKIRTS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

KNICKERBOCKERS VERSUS SKIRTS. The question whether women should abandon tbe skirt for knickerbockers is one which (according to the Paris correspondent of the London Standard) is exercising the minds of Parisians at the present moment. The im mense development of cycling women of all classes of society, wearing ample divided skirts or knickerbockers, may be seen not only in thp. Rnia Ha RnnlnmiA: hnh nn fchfi Tlniilo. yards, and in all the main thoroughfares _ of the French capital. Not content with wearing this cycling costume when riding their iron horses a very large number of them walk about the streets thus attired, go shopping; and sit at the cafe tables on the Boulevards. It was reported some time ago that the Prefect of Police iiad determined to put a stop to this practice. But it appears that he has neither the intention nor the right to interfere. A woman is prohibited from wearing male attire, as a man is prohibited from donning' female dress. But the woman's cycling cost...

METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE, TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I regret exceedingly the introduction into the prospective Methodist union demon stration of a new feature in Wesleyan Metho dism tliafc was unknown to our fathers, and which many regard as contrary to Methodist principle, and one that is not likely to help true unity. I refer to the invitation of the president-eleot of that meeting, whose name frequently appears iu connection with balls, theatres, and Tommy Hudson entertainments. If be claims liberty or is under the bondage of office, so to do, as outside the Wesleyan church he is not under obligation to her laws, but with the committee of the federal council, who invited liim, the position differs. Such like things were held by Wesley and his coadjutors to bo contrary to the teaching of the New Testament. They have always been placed under ban by the Wesleyan Church, and one of her latest Con ferenco pastorals says 'Many a heaven bound barque has . been wrecked on this rock...

LADIES' GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

LADIES' GOSSIP. lliss Ellen Terry says that the best way for a woman to keep young is for her to be con stantly busy at work which she loves. Miss Terry herself is a good illustration of the truth of this statement, for she is devoted to her art, and everyone knows how well she keeps tier youth. Mrs. A. J. Hey'ward, of Plymouth, Maine, U.S., is declared by her fellow townsmen and townswomen to be the«raartest old lady in the state. She is 78 years old, yet she lives alone and does all her own work, including sawing and splitting the wood for her fires and plant ing her garden. She keeps poultry, taking all the care of it herself, and it is stated that during the past year she has spun 400 skeins of yarn. The famous Polish actress, Mme. Modjeska, who for years past had been a naturalised American .citizen and has resided in America, on visiting Russia a short time ago was ordered out of the country and was for bidden likewise to appear upon the stage in Poland. The reason assigned fo...

THE LEIGH'S CREEK COLLIERY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

THE LEIGH'S CREEK COLLIERY. ?TO THE EDITOB. Sir — The remarks made by 'P. Niven'in reference to the Leigh's Creek colliery, which appeared in your issue of the 23rd inst., are none too strong. It certainly is lamentable the way in which the Government have com pletely overlooked the existence of the local coal mine, and even when it is forced on their notice and they condescend to test the coal to observe the dilatory way in which the tests are been given of the capabilities of the coal for railway use, and there is absolutely no reason why the Government should put off any longer the use of the coal, especially as it is so cheap and economy deemed so necessary just now in the Railway Department. It seems madness on the part of an economising Government to go to a distant colony for a high-priced coal, and at the same time allow the only local colliery to lie idle at a time when work is so scarce and labor so plentiful. I trust South Australians will take this matter up and oompel t...

BEAUTIFUL EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

BEAUTIFUL EYES. No eye seems beautiful, whatever its color, size, add pellucidity, if it lacks lashes and well defined brows (writes an American paper). An eye, like a picture, needs to bo framed to be appreciated. Beautifully- arched eyebrows and a thick dark fringe of silken lashes will endow a pair of indifferent eyes with a brilliancy not theirs. The irresistible heroine of a novel generally has long curling lashes. Straight lashes are; mot in themselves half so beautiful as curling ones, and length of lash gives a face a coquettish look that is very winsome ; but the principal charm of an eye — its lustre— is not bo enhanced by the length of lashes as by their density and blackness. An abundant growth of lashes is often an in herited beauty, butit is also onethatis regulated by the health of the lids. Granulation and all local irritation tend to thin out the much prized pretty fringe. Two or three drops of spirits of camphor added to a teaspoonful of borax in a 2-oz. bottle of ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895

TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I notice an enquiry from Mr. H. W. Waterhouse as to the share of responsibility that the Wesleyan section of the Federal Council had in my protest. That is a very fair question. In reply I may say that appli cations for the calling together of that section were refused, so that members have had no opportunity of exercising their right to vote upon the important Question at issue. Although I know leading members of it, both laymen and ministers, who agree with me, I cannot tell how many until that. section has met. Another secretary of the council has always so signed, and no one objected. I inadvertently followed that example, but I readily withdraw the line in question. It is but a side issue; the main question is not dealt with, save in the letter of 'Wesleyan,' who entirely mis represents me. If its author will in fairness aflix his real name- 1 shall probably answer him, but anonymous correspondents I do not presume to deal with. — I am, &c. W. H. HA...

When Dean was taken to Darlinghurst De tective Hinds handed to the warder in . charge a copy of the Daily Telegraph with a report of Mr. Meagher's confession, and said 'Let him see that.' There seemed to be an im pression in bis mind that the man was going to confess. Dean was deeply moved on readiug the details of the confession. Its purport he had learned _ before his arrest. JJe gazed a loner time at the paner after reading . it, and a deathly pallor came over liis face. When asked what he thought of it he said— 'I doivt know I ain sure.
