Long ago a saintly face, Touched with grave, unearthly grace, Gleamed within this shadowy place. Keeper of an earthly fold, ? Grandly brave and wisely bold, Holding truth to finest gold. .

Household. A TALK ON DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 3 November 1881

Stmtfyvliti. A TALK ON DRESS. (From Earner's Montltly.J The object of dresa may be said to be threefold— to oover, to warm, to beautify. It is from the point of beauty that we shall chiefly consider it. Beauty in dresa, aa in other things, is largely relative. To admit this is to admit that a dress whioh ia beautiful upoa one iroman may bo hideous worn by another. Each should understand her own style, accept it, and let the fashion of her dress be built upon it. Because my dark slonder friend looks well in a heavy velvet with a high ruff, her rival, who is short and Btout and blonde, tries to outshine her in a heavier velvet with a higher ruff. It is reason enough that the last should look, ill iu the dress, because the first looks well in it. ? To begin with the matter of colour, which (given the senea for it) is easier to attain than porfeotform in dress, as it takes leaa skill and time, wo may easily divide people into types or classes of colour, and siy what colours must be avoi...
