NATIVE FAUNA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

NATIVE FAUNA. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— There is I believe an Act in existence presumably for the protection of certain very useful native animals and birds, so as to secure a benefit for the whole community. Under it the present is made to be a close season until December to enable them to breed freely and to rear their vounc. Included amoucr the 'protected' are of course our magpies, of waich onjy very few exist now compared with former times, and which rid the country of countless millions of insects now devastating farms and gardens, , As, however, young half -fledged nestlings are being openly exhi bited for sale in dealers' shopk it seems that an invidious exception is made in favor of dealers— a mere handful in comparison to the rest of the community. There isv nothing which so effectively tends to exterminate the useful, beautiful, and harmless denizens of pur fields and' woods as bird-catching and bird dealing (of course excepting birds expressly bred for trade), ; for/the, cheap...

THE BON DA HUT-ROAD. TO TUB EDITOR.

NOVELTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

NOVELTIES. Piqu£, which has been in abeyance, sud denly finds itself in a prominent place among the modes of the season, and from furnishing the feminine waistcoat is now to form the feminine skirt. A well-defined rib is a sine qud non, and skirts of this ribbed pique^ are destined to accompany muslin blouses for out door wear. Open-work batiste and embroidered lawn, shot alpacas, linens and white muslins decked with yellow lace and insertion are first favorites, and lovely indeed are some of the confections in these, with sleeves of shot Bilk harmonising in hue with the floral design, should there be one. Alpaca is much patronised by the cycling world, who have become enamored of its dust resisting1 virtues. Quite a coarse make com poses some of the smart tailor-built coats and skirts of this fabrio. White dresses are very much in evidence with fichus of chiffon either white or black, or flowered. Flowered chiffon makes charming .fiohus edged with lace, and a very striking Ifichu o...

Ladies' Column. THE NEW WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

§kbk0 .Cotemifc TEE NEW WOMAN. At the Wellington-square P.M. Church on punday evening the Rev. J. Day Thompson discoursed on ' The new woman, her duties and responsibilities,' selecting as his text 'Rise up ye women that are at ease ; hear my Voice, ye careless daughters ; give ear unto my epeeoh,' Isaiah xxxii., 9. He used the Expression 'new woman' in neither the ironical, offensive, or slang sense in which it was too frequently used.. If there be such a character as represented, it was an extreme tecoil from the subjected conditions of the past. By the expression he meant the new conception of woman, and the new status she yeas beginning to realise. A real and radical change had unquestionably begun in the life of womanhood. . Her influence had- increased and would become stronger pntil she had her full social and political rights, bnd was on perfect equality with man. The preacher preferred to follow the guidance of Christ in this, as in all matters, rather than that of Paul. Th...

THE SECOND "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

THE SECOND 'AT HOME.' The man who holds the keys of laughter and unlocks to wearied humanity the treasure house of mirth is a public benefactor, and the simple epitaph ' He made his fellow creatures smile' should prove a more lasting memorial than half the blazoned records of heroic deeds that live in brass. Happily no one is anxious to write the epitaph of America's greatest humorist Mark Twain, and hetoo would doubt less' willingly be a party to the indefinite post ponement of any euoh oeremoniaL Apparently there -is no limit to the numl-er of people who having read his works arc eager to come under the personal spell of the author of '' The Inno cents Abroad,' aud the' Theatre Royal on Monday night was filled to its utmost cajjacity by an audience anxious to do honor to the magician of the pen. For upwards of two hours the theatre echoed with, merriment, now with the pleasant murmur of the babbling brook, and anon with the louder roar of the swelling river, while even the wearied...

A CIVIC RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

A CIVIC RECEPTION. About a score of gentlemen, including the Premier and Chief Secretary, members of the City Council, and others, accepted an invita tion to attend at the Mayor's Parlor on Mon day afternoon for the purpose of meeting Mark Twain. After Mr. Clemens had been introduced to the niavor and company by the American Consul (Air. C. A. Murphy), the Mayob (Mr. C. Tucker) asked his guests to drink to the health of their illustrious friend, whose name was a household word throughout the colony. He trusted that Mr. Clemens would enjoy his visit to the colony, and that before returning to his native land he would pay a second visit to Adelaide. The toast was heartily received. Mr. Clemens said it was very gratifying to receive their welcome, which was built on the lines of all the hearty welcomes he had received in Australia. He had had the misfortune since landing in Australia a few weeks ago to be shut up in rooms and hotels, and so had failed to see much of the outside aspects...

MARK TWAIN'S AT HOME. AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION. The Theatre Royal was crowded to its last; Beat on Saturday evening when Mark Twain made his first appearance before an Adelaide audience. Every class of society, from his Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor downwards, was represented amid the great sen,' of faces that were turned towards the stage at 8 o'clock. «The legal contingent was strong, bo also was the clerical : the srra vest merchants uaq come to relax their facial muscles, and the ladies wore present in large numbers to dis prove the calumny that they are not gifted with an appreciation of humor.

MAKK TWAIN. ARRIVAL IN ADELAIDE. The crowd'which assembled at the Adelaide ? railway -station on Saturday morning to, wel come ' Mark Twain ' to South Australia, had a disappointment, for Mr. Clemens had left the truin at Aldgate, and in company with his wife and daugliter, his business manager (Mr. R S. Smythe), and theConsular- Agent for the United States (Mr. C. Murphy), drove down to 'town throucrh the pleasant scenery of the hills. A couple of hours later he had reached the South Australian Hotel, and was shaking hands vyith a few local gentlemen anxious to make his acquaintance, who were introduced by Mr. Smythe. A beautiful basket of ilowers was presented to the visitors at this informal reception by the two little daughters of Mr. Murphy. In private conversation Mark Twain's leisurely enunciation is even more pronounced than on the platform — each word seems to he carefully weighed before it is put forth. His speech is a constant protest against the hurry and worry of the ni...

BURYING THE DEAD. SOME IMPROVED METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895

BURYING THE DEAD. SOME IMPROVED METHODS. ' S6 long as people die and are buried the undertaker's trade will flourish, and most patronage will be gained by that firm which most thoroughly carries out the precept; 'let all things be done decently and in order.' Cremation may come again some day, but in the meanwhile the fune real car and other vehicular tokens of woo will continue to pass in solemn order through the streets on their way to the cemetery. Modernising influences are making themselves fe't, however, in respect to interments, and there is no fixity in the fashion even of ooffinB, hearses, and mourning coaches. Among the most successful of Adelaide undertakers are Messrs. Pengelley & Knabe, whose extensive premises are situated next to che Rundle-Btreeb branch of the Post and Telegraph Office. On an average they conduct more than one funeral per diem; and they have occasionally carried as many as seven bodies to their last home in one day. They have spared no expens...

CHESS NOTES. The opening match of the season for the Smith trophy will take place next Saturday night at Flecker 's, when the Norwoods will meet the St. Peters. The teams this season will be almost the same as last, except that several of the Adelaide's players will play for different teams. On paper the Norlh Ade laides should be able to attain- top place this season, as two of the strongest players in the Adelaides have thrown in their lot with them, viz., Messrs. Macdonald and Werner, who together with Messrs. Belcher, Nairn, Laughton, and Black should be able to hold their own in most matches. The Gawlerg, tho present premiers, are practically the same, except that they have lost Spencer, who has joined the Norwoods. The Norwoods will be.'strengthened by Messrs. Juclces and Clarke, of the Adelaides, and Spencer, of Gawler. The Unleys will suffer a great loss in the absenco of their top player, Mr. Apperly, but they have a large number of young recruits.
