Entertainment. An entertainment, consisting of a concert and tableaux, iu aid of the Presbyterian Church, was held in the Oddfellows' Hall on Wednesday even ing, and was very well attended. A. lengthy programme was gone through, and considering the 6hort notice at n'liii*h tha entoi*fcnmmanr. ntto oof nn everything went off wonderfully wo)]. Great credit is due to the Misses Bro die. who we beliera were the prime movers in the affair, for the manner in which they worked to ensure success, and also to the performers for the hearty manner in which they responded to the sudden call upon their services.

Scents. Scents are not without effect on the constitution and good looks, especially, it is said, those made from lavender, lemon, roses, violets, and benzoin. This is the season of roses, --so every woman who likes her clothes and her linen to bmell sweetly should gather pink, cab bage, and nther roses on a dry day, and compound a pot-pourri. To sis ounces of dried rose leaves they should add one of powdered bermagol peel and half an ounce of cloves and cinnamon, an ounce of orange flowers, and the same of dried acacia flowers.

Small Hands and Feet. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898
Small Hands and Feet. A race with very small hands and feet is a race that has for generations doue very little work and taken very little exercise. South American ladies of Spanish blood can give points as re gards tiuy oxtrcmities to their Anda lusian ancestresses, merely because an altogether tropical climate compels tUi- indolence that a semi-tropical climate favours. When the nvera-rp Frenchman— and M. Dauriet Is. in many respects, a singularly average lYencli inaii— eulogises the small foot, he is simply glorifying idleness. Not other wise is the Chinaman proud of the cramped feet of bis womankind, as at oiicr a certificate of aristocratic idle ness and a safeguard asrainst dangerous excursions. — ' The Sketch.'
