Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

Meuta."] As we hurry along m this busy world, we scarcely have time to think of what has been left behind. Fashions come and go and we forget them, until perhaps something is revised that wears a semblance of by-gone days. So it is with everything. Modes adopted by our grandmothers and grandfathers are not countenanced. The white elaborately worked anti macassars which graced the backs of their chairs are not allowed to-day. All sorts of fanciful productions of art are used in their place, and perhaps the newest of these is embroidering in burnt leather and velveteen. It is called " Pyrography or Poker Work," by which is understood the burning of a design on leather or wood. It is work which, when done properly, well repays the doer. The effect is rich and beautiful. The whole work might be self-taught with care and application. The' apparatus for leather is the same as that used for wood, only one point however is absolutely neces sary. Any one who has worked on "Wood can work on l...

Current Jotting. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

Last week, the glorious cause of Federation struck another snag, but apparently, it was, like the guileless young lady's baby, "only a little one," and the occasion was one for merriment instead of mourning. M*/. Lyne led up to the crash by suggesting that Syd ney should be made the capital of the coming Commonwealth, but as tiis didn't seem to catch on with the delegates from the other colonies, Mr. Lyne put the matter in a milder form and hinted that he would Le fairly well satisfied if viie capital " was situated within the colony ol New South Wales." Boars of laughter greeted this modest proposal, upon which Mr. Lyne waxed very wrath and in formed the Convention that he was " in no laughiig humor !" " Are you ever in a laughing mo jd ? -Lst us see you smile just for once," chipoed in Mr.,Peacock, v<ho is credited with having a lau^a strident, crackcd, and weirc.— something like that which, accord ing to Swinburne, is heard "low down in hell:" The hyena is said to laug...

A correspondent states that along the white line route to Grenfell over 10,000 acres of land are being got ready for the plough this year in addition to the large area already cleared. Mr. Amos Southwell's wheat and hay at Brundah, valued at about j£400, was destroyed by fire on Mon day. It was uninsured, being one of a very few uncovered risks on the Bundah wheat area.
