The pulpit, a formidable but rilkety structure was approaoaed by a high and shaky flight tof steps, and was illuminated by two tallow candles intm n onces, on either side of the 'reacher.

'THE LADY OF THE MIST. .Dansely the fog rolled in upon the range utf hills west of the Valley of Ventura-the }range of hills which rives in a succession of grand terraces, like a Titanio staircase e sweeping back from the grey soe-and long, shadowy, spectral filaments of mist skutrried d ahead of the main fog bank as the white foam r, skime ahead of the tide upon the wavee e creeping, areepilg up far aeross the flat sands 'of,tte beach. Upon the .first mesa, that magnificent table-land now carpeted with green, waving t. grain, just at the mesa's edge and looking down upon the sea beating for ever against the foot of the mountain, there was in the old days the adobe hut of Pablo Dominguez, a the sheepherder, who tended the herds that s fed upon the messe and mountain slopes around about the hut-and in the door of the haut there stood, looking out \npon the grey sea as the fog came sweeping in like, a grand army of shadows a ming to people the land, Pablo's good wife, Erlinda.

NOTES ON TRIMMINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 16 June 1888

NOTES ON TRIMMINGS. It is a good old fashion that we are renewing in having pettiooate of silken fabrlos, and draperies and bodioes of stuff goods-a faney that has been handed down from generation to generation, and unhest tatingly commended by all for their generally refined appearance. The vogue given grey toilettes has resalted in some dainty oombinations of velvet with cloth or cabmere; The petti coat in usually of velvet, the drapery of the wool staff, and the bodice of the two materials.: While any original arrangement is liked, there is a decided fancy for con fining the velvet almost entirely to the kir'. .. Furs have never been more worn than they are this winter, and the continued liking for brown and green costumes assures the popularity of brown and black fore of every description. It is said that vests of fur, astrakhan, natural beaver, and seal will be worn for bodices later on in the season, thongh, of course, snob heavy deoorations are euited only for street wear. Th...

POT-HUNTING. (THE WORLD.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 16 June 1888

POT.HVNTING. (THE' WotLD.) The professidn to whioh this elegant name! is applied in chiefly abused by those who pursue it unsuooesafully, But hard names break no bines, and the pot-hunting tribe increase and multiply with a vigour which mere abuse is quite powerless to check. In one sense, indeed, abuse is rather mis placed; for though pot hunting may be a low type of social growth, it is a perfectly nIatvral product, inevitably called into existence by the modern development of I athletic sports, Like the poor, it is always with us, but, like the poor, we have grown accustomed to it, and we are only reminded of its existence from time to time by the recurrence of come of the few non pot-hunting athletic events which still survive. The University boat.race and sports are conspioious among these honour. able survivals, and there is every reason to believe, as there is every reason to hope, that they will long endure as such. The olive-wreath prize of the Olympian games a left nothing...

SKIN ERUPTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 16 June 1888

SKil ERUPTIONS. A healthy skin is one of the pie-requisies of perfect health. Next to regular featureb nothing is more essential to beauty. In tBe sakin, more than elsewhere, lies that beauty which is the charm in the bloom of youth.. Anyone may be able to designate the funotione of many of the various argana-as that the use of the eye is to see, of the brain to thinuk of the stomach to digest food, and so forth. Bet it would paeale many to set forth the faontions of the skin. The discovery, by Professor Leibreieh, of i new fat, Lanoline, which is natural to the skin and hair, has given a fresh impetus ti' the care and treatment of the skin in medci&t quarters. Ordinary soaps, as is well known, oftse cause pimples, blotches, and asores oU the facq and prevent erop' o, a alreaay formed from healing. They naume .e the fat and dry thb skin, so that it becomes hard, inelastro, and rough, and loses its natural colour, Now Lanoline, being the fat natural to the skin and absoobed b...
