Raiment Bummer Frocks. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

Raiment Summer Frocks. One especially pretty toilette, and easily copied, was of yellow linen — now so fashionable— and the skirt was p?r I'ectly plain, with three full pleats at the back. Tlie bodice had very large leg of-mutton sleeves, and the hack wus light-fittine, while the front had a j;a thered pioce drawn down from shoulder to waisi, and as a vest a piece to cor respond to tlie white linen and lace col lars and cuffs was inserted. The belt of white ribbon was attached to the skirt, which fastened round the waist tner the bodice, and had a very stift bow at the. back. Tli.-Re nollm-u a nil milT« ivith vpRt to match, will often refurbish :i gown — a necessary thing for the econo mical housewife. Polka dot gowns are much in vogue. At one fashionable es tablishment was a blu.'-aud-white, the dot of which was very small, while through the entire ground ran a very narrow blue stripe. The skirt was trimmed wiUi a deep Spanish flounce, reaching to the knees. Tlie bodice has a loose...

Frenchwomen and Their Gowns. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

Frenchwomen and Their Gowns. Tlie fact that the middle-class French woman is generally better dressed than her English sister lies In the following explanation. Cheap, flimsy material Is never bought by the French girl, who purchases but one gown to each two or three seemingly required in this country but when a gown Is bought much care and thought is exercised on its choiee. ana ,i is invariably made up at home, ho neat .s the finish, so perfect the fit of the bodice and hang of the skirt, how ever, that one could easily imagine that the services of a clever modiste had been requisitioned. Then careful brushing, tlie stitch in time,' and a direct veto against plus all add to the freshness and Jn '''I?.1'00;? of a Frenchwoman's £? in' l?!he,.chmate. too, has something to do with the matter, dry ness being a great aid to the presei-vation of the cash meres and various thin woollen stuffs in request for every-day use.

Amusing Incidents in Newspaper Offices. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

Amusing Incidents in News- '?[ paper Offices. \-i The amusing mistakes about a newspaper office are not always made by compositors. Uditors, correspondents, aud reporters do their share, and were it not for the score? of sharp eyes ever on the alert during the hours of work the public would see blunder after blunder appear. ; It is an old story in the newspaper world, that of the New York Herald's headline at the time of the assassination of President Lincoln. Telegraph service in those days was not what it is now, and it was after midnight when the news was received in the editorial rooms of that metropolitan daily. The telegraph editors had gone home, so, indeed, had everybody else, ex cept the 'late watch,' who happened to be an elderly personage, one of the genus of journalistic fungi who are found on every newspaper's staff. He realised that the news was worth getting into the paper, and got it there. Then he puzzled his brain for headlines. This wasn't his forte, but finally h...

The police arc carrying him to the dead-house,' and she leant out of the window. Mrs. Steel followed, and looked forth also, and her husband, with that morbid curiosity, which -seizes upon the weak-minded and forces them to look upon that which repels and disgusts them, gazed forth from another window. The police were piBsing by, and as he looked, the dead man's head swung over the strercher, upon whicli the body was placed. - The eyes were . open and staring wide ; and between the white teeth (the lips being drawn back, and so, as it were, conveying a hideous grinning expression to the face) the b...

A Wealthy Tramp. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

A Wealthy Tramp. Oases of wealthy tramps, who trudge through the country with deposit re ceipts for large sums of money in their possession, have often been recorded (says the Melbourne Argus), but there has rarely been such an instance ns that reported by our Trentham corres pondent, who writes: — ? Last Friday Constable Lombard arrested a very notable character, one Patrick Cotter, who is known in this and other dis tricts as the weaituy swngman. JJur ing the day several persons saw him wandering near thu town in fin almost nude state, -tnd he was locked up on a charge of indecent behaviour. At the lock-up he was found to have upon him, secreted amongst a uiaes of rags, which he carries, deposit receipts rep resenting £945, and £5 or £G in cash. He was brought before Mr Norton. J.P,, at the. Trenthara Court, when the charge was fully proved, and he was fined £5, with 13s 6d costs.

Marriage Customs in Formosa. The Japan Weekly Times says tha'. tho marriage customs in Formosa differ more or Ubs according to tribes, and ilif following brief account of them as they prevail among the Botan tribe of the aborigines may be' of interest.

Dickons Murdering Nancy. Mr. Charles Dickens, son of the great novelist, says that wheu his father firsr thought of giving public readings from his own works, his friend and 'biogra- pher, Mr. Forster, tried to dissuade him from the idea.

His se'eomi course of readings was gone throutrli with great effort aud much sufferintr.

A Rival to Oil. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 15 January 1898

A Rival to Oil. Vessels in heavy seas are more effec tively and economically protected by fishing nets than by oil, according to the' Baron Benvenuto d'Alessandro. The nets, made from stout twine, weigh about three ounces per square yard, and are provided with cork' floats when neces sary. When a vessel is scudding before the wind -the net is dragged at the bow, and the waves are still ; when she is anchored Id a heavy sea the net is placed to windward with the same result. (The inventor of this system declares that harbours may be enlarged by simply stretching nets between buoys or piles.
