THE WINTER BLOOM. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 2 June 1888

THE WINTER BLOOM.. One of the most remarkable plants is the "winter bloom." It is green all the year, and in winter has both flowers and fruit on its branches. The limbs of this tree are used in searching for water under ground, and it is not an uncommon thing in America to see men walking about their land, with a sprig in hand, trying to find where to dig for water. As soon as the man is over water the branch droops, as if to go to the water. On this account the winter bloom is also called witch.hazeL Its scientiflo name is Hams melia, and it is to the medical value of this that we propose to refer. The moest beautiful preparation of it is Hazeline, which is a clear, pellucid fluid. To begin with, we may say that Hazeline is perfectly safe, and its properties are mani fold. As a mouth.wash and gargle it is excellent, "and is equally serviceable for catarrh or cold in the head. Diluted wrh three parts of water it makes a very cooling and sedative eye water. To apply externally for r...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. WINTER MILLINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 2 June 1888

"Til LADIES' COULUMŽ., BY VIVA. t WINTER MILLINERY. There is nothing very new this winter In the shapeas of bonnets or hate, though a little bonnet, with pointed crown and long side darts meeting In front of the glittering feathers of the rifle bird, set on either ide of aknot of pale salmon velvet, is quaint and fascinating, the mingled hues of the feathers being set off by the gathered folds of the dark claret velvet of the brim. Velvet and the plumage of birds' breasts are both much used for bonnets; but fine cloth, pinked at the edges, and either out into laoo patterns orembroildered, Is the newest departure. A dainty little bonnet is of ruby velvet, with a square plain crown of Louis XV. tinselled brocade of many colours. Muffs to match the bonnets are growing in favour, and a very bizarre French model shows a tiny muff of bronze velvet, lined with blue and bronze shot silk, and attached to a sling eollar made of tapering folds of the velvet, lined with the silk, and growing wi...

The nioment the truth was kaown the price was lowered ; but the girl had learned the worth of her wares, and would not write for lees, so continued to earn her fair wages in spite of her sex.

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE NEW CROWN PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 2 June 1888

RECOLLECTIONS OF THE NEW CROWN PRINCE. "A former tutor" of the new Crown Prince of Germany contributes some scat tered recollections of his Royal pupil to last month's " Murray's Magazine." He does not accept the common estimate of his cha racter. "Prince William, when I knew him, was a frank, well-mannered, genial boy." The writer of: the artiole visited Germany to learn the language in 1873, and through an introduction to a certain learned professor, obtained the poet of teacher of English to the young Prince. Previous to commencing his tutorial duties, however, he was ushered into the presence of the Crown Princess-the present Empress Vic toria-and he gives the following account of his interview : THE PRBINESS ROYAL, She was anxious, she said, that her son should acquire a good English accent; she herself was told by her friends when she went home that she had lost the art of talking pure English. I replied th .t in that case my ears must have been dolled by my residence abroad ;...

Buggeoatloness of Poetry. Among literary men, poets have less to show, in point of quantity, than any other members of the profession. But in wide ar d enduring usefulness of application and rich suggestivenees none are their equals. When tbe vast bulk of prose works have spent the r influence and been laid aside, the poet still retains his place, and in each encceedinggo.n- ration is found to contain, as it were, some prophotic illusion to the then existing present For instance, one cone antly meets such pa-. sages as the following': aing out old hbapes of fool dises.o, and a generation or two after these words are written, thatextraordinary effectual proventa. tive of typhoid, diphtheria, eto., is discovered, viz .

It .has lost been the reveree. In scarcely any district has the water ran on the surface. The raih has been steady, with the result that the lull absorbed the moisture gradually, and none has gone to waste. In most oases the land has been saturated down to the subsoil. The young crops have benefited very much by the weather, as the nights, although long, have been mild to far for this time of year. Ploughing is still being vigoro sly pushed s on, this operation being somewhat delayed this season owing to the lateness of the autumn rains. The pastures have commenced to look fresh and green, and there will yet be a nice growth in the grass before the winter sets in.
