The ambassador and, the members of his staff were required to attire them selvef in strange costumes, provided by the Sultan, and on reaching the pre sence-chamber, at the end of a long and grotesque procession, they were seized under the arms by two stout' chamberlains, and being lifted off their feet, were borne in that uncomfortable fashion before the Sultan.

NUISANCE AT CAMBERWELL - At a meeting of the Cential Board of Health held 'last Monday morning, when there were present :--Mr A. P. Akehurst (presidenit), Dr. Tweedale, Dr. Shields, Mr :C. R.

Although he had been fined on a previous occasion, and had failed to carry out his promise to remove the nusianee, the justices only allowed 2 guineas costs, notwithstand ing that the local board must have been out of pocket three times that sum in prosecuting him. Under such discouraging circumstances reluctance on the part of the local boards to set the law in motion could hardly be wondered at. It seemed to be the disposition of Justices to jump at every opportunity to allow offenders in these matters to escape. e © r Taylor, the Boar...

SMALL JOINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888

SMALL JOINTS. English cookery (says a writer in " The Queen") nas improved in the last twenty years quite as rapidly as our taste in dress and in house decoration. Twenty years ago our menus were a monotonous repetition of large joints, co:d meat, and hash Abount that lime diner a la ERnse began to creep into fashion, and soups and made dishes be came more general. The present writer re members that it was then considered rather a joke when a certain lady, the mistress of a large house, spoke of a "'leg of mutton at one end and an apple-tert at the other" as a good dinner. But nowadayseanch simplicity could certainly not be found at all in any rich woman acoustomeo to society. I do not wish to say a word in favour of luxury ; the plainer the food the healthier the feeder. But physicians teach as that freshly cooked meat is lighter and more digestible than that whion has been warmed up or re-cooked. It therefore follows that large joints are only suitable for large families, and that...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. ABOUT FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 19 May 1888

THE LADIES' COLUMIN. B. V B iva.. - ABOUT PFAILURE. Dr Githrie has said that success in life depends on civility, much more than on ;p. reverance or talent. As he records this aa the result of much careful observation of ;men and things, It is probably hot without truth, though most of us eanrecall inatanees of men whose failure in life has only been equalled by their civility. Good manners cover a multitude of sins, but will hardly stand in place of capacity or perseverance. In this prosperous land the total failure in life of any healthy man or woman may nsually be attributed to his or her own fault. Some form of self-indul gence, in temperor in appetite, is gecerally at the bottom of a wrecked life. With ordinary capacity and intelligence, men should succeed in ordinary aims. In luck, so much abused by unsuccessful people, I cannot bring myself to believe at all; and have a stronger belief in steadiness of aim, as a flctor in success, than in talents, even brilliant ones.
