Origin of Sea-bathing. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 22 January 1898
Origin of Sca-»athiiiff. It Is interesting to note, says ' Science Slftings,' that sea-bathing hart Its origin in England before 1750, when Dr. Richard Russell published his trea tise on the virtues of sea-water. The healing virtues; of the sea bath were not understood, nor was tli« practice of sea-bathing generally resorted to. There seems to have existed a horror of the sea : indeed, in mediaeval times a compulsory aip in its waters was a. sent ence often passed on the public offender. In the earlier decades of last century Western Europe suffered heavily under ' king's evil,' the popular name for that tuberculous affection which scourged all classes from peer to peasant. Dr. Rus sell, a Sussex practitioner, had observed that dwellers on the coast used to drink of the sea water, bathe in it, even wash their sores in it, .and bind them up with sea.\veed. Having satisfied himself as to the efficacy of the practice, he began to prescribe it for his patients with most satisfactory res...
Waterloo Survivors. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 29 January 1898

Baillot was taken prisoner at Waterloo, after receiving a . sabre slash on the helmet -which felled him. to the ground, but did not wound him. His chief recollection of the battle is that the growing wheat impeded the progress of the French army, and cavalry were sent to trample it down. This, Baillot thinks, was a great pity, for It' was wanton destruction.

Wedding Bouquets. A young woman, who is a successful florist in London, has made her fame principally through her wedding bou quets. She does not favour the shower bouquet, so popular there, as she says that it is rarely held gracefully, the only way to hold It being close to the gown below the waist, and to- hold it in this one place continually becomes awkward and monotonous. She, how ever, favours flowers loosely arranged, and has a great liking for using black velvet ribbons to bind flowers of either gay or pale hues, finding it more effec tive than ribbons of the same tint as the flowers.
