Ladies' Column[?] ORIGINAL LONDON LETTER (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) A PRETTY CONFIRMATION DRESS [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
Ladies' Column' ORIGINAL LONDON LETTER By MRS STDUNGE BUTSON. (All Rights Reserved.) ' A FKETTY CONFIRMATION DRESS ILL be in request, foi many flijAlft young people, In Pans, the iiyJltMlS streets are full of tbe white veiled childish figures, for the French Roman Catholics confirm young girls and boys at the early age of from eleven to twelve. In England we are a little older, more experienced and better able to underfitand and realise the great responsibility thoy tako upon themselves. - Whatever tbe toilette to be worn for thiB first great stopping place in a girl s life, it should btf as simple, however pretty, as possible. It would be absurd to say tbat the young wearer's thoughts must not reBt upon bo unusual a coBtume, but it depend's chiefly on the parent or guardian in what way this typical dress should be regarded by the candidate — whether as a sort of gala attire for rather an interest ing social event, or the chosen garment of self-dedication to tho holiest aims of life...

Send off to Mr Osberg and family at Eugowra. On Friday evening last Mr.N E.Osberg and family were tendered a send-off by the residents of Eugowra and district. The function took place in the School of Arts Hall and proved most enjoyable. Quite 200 people put in an appearance, the hall being beautifully decorated with flowers and greenery. Two large tables were provided which provided &nbsp; accommodation for 100 people. The supper was carried out splendidly under the &nbsp; management of Mrs. Ashcroft assisted by several ladies of the town. The Chairman, Mr. D. Chesher, pro posed the health of ' The King ' and ' The guest of the evening, ' the former, drunk with musical honors. He said he would not detain them long as there were several old hands there who would speak to the toast before it was put, and he would give them an opportunity of &nbsp; expressing a few words. He had rather the toast had fallen to someone who would do it fuller justice than he. He s...
PRINCESS SINGH. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902
PRINCESS SINGH. i The Princess Sophia Bunba Dhuleep Singh, a siscer of Prince Victor Dhuleep Singh, whose marriage with Lady Ann Coventry was a subject of a pood deal of talk at the time, is now studying medicine at the Woman's Medioal College of the North-western University in Chicago. She is commonly called Princess Bamba, and h&B exhibited a commendable disin- j clination to talk in spite of the seduotive 1 attempts of the American reporter. Her I desire is merely to study, and to be quiet, and shft i^aaa hnfVi. PArh«.na Vior fad is the wearing of gold bracelets, but beyond that she soarcely wears jewellery of any. sort She is devoted to dogs, and has a great Dane and a Russian wolf hound, both of which she tcok to America from England.

Ways of Living. RIVER POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902
Ways of Living. RIVER TOLICE. jJJIVj TIME there was -when Father cuM® Thames waB associated with all jgjjg kinds of tals, mysterious and otherwise — with murders, and bodieB dropped through trap-doors into the dark waters ; with deadly struggles at the waterside, knives flashing, and a life or 60 tbe less ; with romanoes which generally came to a melancholy and ia suicides remain, for the most efficient polioo administration cannot check human misery, or prevent this symbol of it. The other episodes, '-owever, are heard of no longer, and for dramatic incident tho annals of the Thames Police compare very favourably with tbe most uninterest ing country police-court. For years they have not chronicled a mysterious murder, aud their business is solely oonfined to the prevention and detection of petty thefts. How petty tho thefts are may be understood from the fact that last year the value of uu recoverad stolen property in the miles of river whicV flows between Woolwich and Batterssa am...
QUAINT LENTEN CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902
QUAINT LENTEN CUSTOMS. The word ' Lent ' has no religious meaning ; it is simply another name for spring, er the season when the days lengthen. It was originally called * Lencten-festen,' or ' Spring-fast ' — a name soon shortened to ' Lent.' The great fast was introduced ia the fourth century, when, however, it began on what is now the first Sunday in Lent; but as it was unlawful to fast on Sundays, four extra days were added in 487, so as to make it correBpend with our Lord's fasting in the wilderness, by bringing the actual days abstinence up to forty,' and from that time Lsnt has begun on Ash rr euuesaay, so-caned rrotn rue oia custom of sprinkling ashes on the heads of the penitents on this diy, while the priest made the sim of the cross on the fore heads of the rest of the oingregation with ashes made of the palms blesaed on the previous Palm Sunday, as he repeated, 'Remember, man, that thou art but dust, and unto dust thou shalt return.' A mosf extraordinary custom prevailed ...

Personalities. SIR SUDNEY. fN the the memoirs of the Rev. Sydney Smith, written by hiB daughter, a good story is told. To one of Sydney Smith's suppers, after he became Dcau of St. Paul's, Sir James Mackintosh brought a raw Scottish oousin, ensign in a Highland regiment On hearing the name of his host, he sud denly nudged Sir James, asking in an audible whisper, ' Is that the great Sir Sud&ey V ' Yes, yes,' said Sir James, much amused; and giving my father the hint, on tho instant he assumed the military char acter, performed, the part of the hero of Acre to perfection, fought all his battles o'er again, and showed how he had charged the Turks, to the infinite delight of the young Ssotohman, who was quite enchanted with the kindness and con descension of the great Sir Sudney, and the absolute torture of the other guests, who were bursting with suppressed laughter at the inimitable acting of my ' father and Sir James. At twelve o'clock at night nothing would serve the young H...

WOMEN AND POLITICS [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902
WOMEN AND POLITICS Are supposed by the ordinary masculine mind, to be ' wide as the poles asunder.' I use the word 'ordinary' not in the sense of usual, but in the moaning of 'common,' as when we 6ay a thing is ' very ordinary.' The male creature, having a perpetual dread of women invading the domain of anything they coasider their privileged own, will do all in their power to keep back feminine intelligence.

There were about 55 couples preset. t, aud tho scone was rendered magnifisont and truly beautiful by the brilliant costumes worn by numbers of ladies, especially so when the various colors were flashed hither and thither during the progress of daucing. Dancing commenced punctu ally at 8.30 under tlie manasemont of Mr. Jan. O'Brien who proved a most pains...

Ladies' Column ORIGINAL LONDON LETTE R By MRS STRANGE BUTSON. (All Rights Reserved.) AN ELEGANT TAILOR-MADE TOILETTE fS a neoessary and useful thing for the coming days. Everything depends upon the material of which such a dreBS is made, for it has to serve for both ohilly and mild temperatures, which is just a little troublesome and difficult to arranee. It ia almost imnossible to recommend materials, for their variety is endless, and choice, being individual, must be acoordiag to suoh widely differ ent tastes. Frenchwomen are particularly fond of cloth in thin kinds, and aa a pre ference give the palm to amazone. This is u soft falling variety, which has also the merit of liehtness. and iB scaroelv more ponderous than a merino or caolie mire dress when made up. There is a a little matter to which I would draw my kind readers' attention when about to get a new dress. In the usual way they see a picture, a model, or ready-made costume in a shop, er a gown on a friend that they great...
