Twitterings. Bt a Hobabt Spabkow. Mrs. Hard Cash held an ' At Home ' on Monday afternoon. The*lady birdfl, who came in great numbers, chirped away gaily as they sipped from the unsavory gutters in Davey-street. As usual in well-mannered drawing-rooms, tho chief topic was the servant girl question. Everyone was com plaining loudly that they could get no really efficient help, although so much poverty undoubtedly harassed the working classes, and suggestions of domestic eco nomy classes, shortening hours of labor, better mistresses as well as girls, were thoroughly thrashed out. 'Ah,' twittered Mrs. Sultan, 'I over heard a very strange conversation last Monday. I was resting under a verandah in Murray-street when a well dressed, dashing looking girl stopped to speak to a loudly attired young man. Without any preliminary remark he eagerly made this, to me, unintelligible enquiry, ? Well, did you get the needful ?' She replied with a coarEe expression and mocking laugh, ' Oh yes, I bled...

Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893
Boxing. Whon Griffo had been a week ou the free soil of America, aud had laid in a stock of gloves and hats and chaste tics, and had got his feet into bright, tight boots, and had his visiting-card printed, he hired a gorgeous vehicle and drove off to iut«r view Corbett. He sent up tbe new card and waited for an answer. It came, as follows ; — ' Mr. Corbett is very sorry, but he — aw — really can't find time to see any Australian pugilist.' (He'll be able to feel one when he meets Peter Jackson.) Th« scene closes with Griffo making obser vations on the 'sidewalk,' and holding himself back with both hands to prevent him rushing upstairs and rending Pompa dour Jim as the Christian used to be rent by tbe wild beasts of Ephesus.

Hoiden Hubbub. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893
Hoiden Hubbub, Each and every mortal hour it lasts, in thts manner ; the infinite uubbub unslockeued. : It is fashionable to look for dirt now-a-days, and find it in everything. The Australian boy does it because he hears the Australian young man, and thinks it clever. He wauts to bo ' manly,' and for the same reason he smokes and drinks and becomes fc larrikin. The young men see tilth in most everything, because — because its fashionable. We admire the manliness of the age. Suppose an average manabout town to meet a girl who is as God intended her to be ; the man would take her for a hypocrite : he wouldn't believe in her, because he doesn't believe in the purity o? woman out side his own family circle. He might consider her the opposite to what she reaHy is. Most likely he would see 'encouragement' in the very sim plicity or innocence of her conversa tiou, and come to the conclusion that ' it would be good enough.' That last expression might seem offensive in print, but then, you ...

Ming Notes and Tips [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893
Mining Notes and Tips [By Gnome. 1 A statement recently made in the Northern press to the effect that the reef in t lie West Pinafore presents every ap pearance of being a true ' saddle reef ' is of very great interest inasmuch as this is the class of reef found at Laudsell's and other mines at Bendicro. The finding- of a true ' saddle reef ' would open up a new era in gold mining for Tasmania, aud I shall watch further developments at tho West Pinafore with keen interest. This mine is looking well at present and there has been a substantial rise in the value of shares. The fact that smelting works are likely to be erected at Dundas will be hailed with very general satisfaction and will give a spurt to the value of the ores on that field. The ore from the Andeison mine now on view at Mr. Liberty's office speaks well for Dundas. There can be no doubt that at a depth ore similar to that at Zeehan will be fouud. The find on the Anderson speaks well for the future of the Comet mine. The...

PALMISTRY. THE THUMB AND ITS DIVISIONS. THE LENGTH OF THE THUMB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 21 October 1893
PALMISTRY. THE THUMB AND ITS DIVI SIONS. THE LENGTH OF THE THUMB. The thumb is the strougest of all the fingers, and consequently is ocui sidered to represent the brain, vi?.. tbe will. A very long thumb alwa^ys signi fies a very strong energetic wiJJ power, and it in found principally in Saturnian, Jupiturnian, Bud Mei curiau organisations. A short thumb indicates a weak unresisting will, a lack of euerpy, and personal initiature, and is gener ally found among the Lunar, (lie Venueian and muscular-sanguine in their typical forms. A short thumb gives simplicity. with feeble powers of resistance. The longer the thumb the stronger tbe will-power, and tbe greater the power of analysis, and of breaking away from generalities. The best servants bave short thumbs, doing well under kind, but never familiar, management. The best soldiers have short thumbs also. This exaggerated muscular type is common among certain classes, who, if left too wucli to their own free wills, are likely to give ...
