A Memory. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 April 1899
A Memory. She gave consent and bent her head — I thought her strangely kind — With pouted lips, 'Just one,' she said, And then — she changed her mind — A woman's privilege. Ah, 'twas sad . j.o rennquisn u — ana yec The sweotest kiss I ever had Was the one I didn't get. Thon how she laughed — the dainty sprite, And smoothed my frowning brow ; ? I played a churlish part that night— I scarce forgive her now. And yet 'twas better far, I'm sure, J Than if our lips had met — For in remembrance will endure The kiss I didn't get. „ So 'tis with life— the aims we miss Will shine for ever bright, And leave a fragrance like the kiss I failed to get that night. Ah, years may come and years may go, But ne'er shall I forget — The sweetest kiss I'll ever know Was the kiss I didn't get.
Women Who Are Superstitious. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 April 1899
Women Who Are Superstitious. Superstition is one of woman's pre rogatives. Her mind, being of a more religious turn than tbat of man, naturally absorbs superstitious tenets. But do you know tbat there are fashions in super stitions ? Take jewels. Those at one time in high favour are at another time uronounced of ill omen. Not so lone aero cat's-eyes were very fashionable and valuable. There is no call for them now. Why ? Because women have agreed that they bring bad luck, and every fair Sosseasor of these unfortunate stones is isposintf of them as fast as possible. One woman was so desirous to break the baneful influence her cat's-qye lace pins had wrought, and yet disliking to bring confusion worse than death upon anyone by selling or giving the ornaments away, that she, by stealth and at night, dug a grave in her back garden and buried them. Opals and emeralds are also uu lueky stones, and very few women will tempt fate by wearing them. A well-known actress has a horror of birds, ...
Intermarriage of Blood Relations. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 April 1899
Intermarriage of Blood Relations. With regard to deaf mutes, statistics show, for the most part, that the closer the degree of relationship between the parents, the more numerous are the deaf mute children born. For example, one marriage between an annt and nephew produced three deaf mutes. . Four mar riages between unole and niece produced wlfivfln deaf muteR : twentv-siy mni-rinopn between first cousins produced thirty eight deaf mutes; sixteen marriages between second cousins produced twenty eight deaf mutes ; forty- Bevon marriages between blood relatives produced seventy two deaf mutes. These are important facts, which leave no measure of doubt as to the influence o£ the intermarriage of blood relations in causing deaf-mutism. But just in the samo way as consan guineoxis marriages should be avoided, so also should tho intermarriage of persons tainted with hereditary disease bo dis couraged.

To » writer in one of the many ladies' journals we are indebted for the news that ' it has' become quite the fashion of late for ladies to take (heir tea in their hats and gloves.'

That was remarkable' The following story is told by a con temporary : A London paper reported on one occasion tho capture in ' mid-channel of a_ large man-eating Bhark.' A pro vincial- journal, copying tho paragraph, but lesB careful about the punctuation, gave a difEoront vorsion of the incident : 1 A large man, eating shark, was captured in mid-channel.'

THE FATAL LILIES, — OR — The. Lady of Larchton Mere. CHAPTER VI. The spring of the year had come, round; but . home was no longer home to Ross Cumnor. In vain had he tried to stem the torrent that was gradually sweeping him from all place and position. As the baby-boy Hugh grew stronger day after day, Lady Cumnor grtw more insolent, more urgent that Ross should leave home, and more anxious that her son should be at least heir of Larchton Mere. Good-natured, kindly, indolent Sir Austen nev,er dreamed why she questioned him so closely about his title, lands, and money ; he was the « last ever to suspect evil in any one. So, when he- stood one morning on the terrace overlooking the mere, and . ? she came up to him, he never imagined '-'tHat that was the first of a series of investigations and suggestions that were to end in driving his elder son from home. and making his younger ?'.- son. heir to Larchton Mere. Lady Cumnor went up to him with the haughty grace that was peculiar to her ...
