It i an established custom that should om of these. ladies marry during her tern of office, she has a dowry from thi Queen of £1,000. There ib a proviso, however, conected with this, and thai is that her Majesty's consent should be i given; to the: marriage. , When the Queen holds a " DraWingrroom" her maids walk in the Royal procession to the throne room, and stand immediate ly near the Queen throughout the cere mony.

MAKING AND KEEPING FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914

MAKING AND KEEPING FRIENDS. Making friends is easy to the girl who is bright and hapn" whose society gives pleasure, ana who is genial. But' the keeping Gf them demands more _ than this. To keep a friend/ don't get roo inti mate with her. Have your own thoughts, and per mit her to have her». Do not demand too much of her in the way of confidence. And do not be too asrzresBive, want ing to know why she hasn't done this, and why she doesn't think as you do. If her style of dress is not beautiful, don't tell her; it will only offend her, because deep in her heart she is con vinced that ehe knows a great deal more about it than anyone else. Do not find fault with a friend's friend, and do not expect to be the only one given a corner in her heart.

A PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914

A PRACTICAL JOKB. Here ib a good story of Sir Nm) Paton, but an old one. The painter was a frequent visitor at a hydropathia establishment in Yorkshire, and was often there as a friend of the proprie* tor. Above the mantelpiece in the drawing-room was a large, handsome mirror, reaching to the ceiling. Oha morning, as the guests were assembled before breakfast, an alarm was raised, "Look at the'mirror!" And lot there was a deep, irregular, slanting crack right across the glass! The doetor was fetched, servants sent for, questions ask ed, but. no one knew anything about it. "Had any of the boys thrown . cricket ball at itP If so, let him con fess." But all was in vain. The doctor was getting very mystified and vexed, when Paton, who had bee® standing quietly by, said: " Just let ma have a step-ladder, and I'll examine it." When the ladder was brought, h« mounted, and, taking a cloth out of his pocket, rubbed it over the mirror-and the crack was gone! He had crept in quietly early in t...

THE ROSE AND ITS LEGENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 January 1914

THE ROSE AND ITS LEGENDS. " Few people," says Mrs. Ruskin, " have, ever asked themselves why they admire a rose so much more than any other flower." In case they should do so, he answers the question. If they consider, they will find first that red is in a delicately graduated state the most lovely of all pure colours; and, secondly, that in the rose there is no shadow, except what is composed of colour. "All its shadows are fuller in colour than its lights owing to the translucency and reflective power of its leaves." There iB a curious legend about the origin of the rose: "A Jewish maid of Bethlehem (whom Southey has named, Zillah) was beloved by one Hamuel, a brutish sot. Zillah rejected his suit and he vowed vengeance. He said that Zillah was a demoniac, and she was condemned to be burnt; but God averted the flames, the stake to which she was bound budded, and the maid stood unharmed under a rose tree full of white and red roses, then first seen ?ince Paradise was lost."

. FACTS ABOUT illtfFFS. There are two kinds of muffs known to compilers o£ dictionaries. One they describe as " a warm cover for both hands in winter," and the other is "n soft fellow." Mu.fs used to be carried by both sexes indiscriminately a long while ago, and these o!d fashions hart the habit of reappearing. Some .people atlirm there is a fixed cycle of progress through which fashions run,- and tha: they all come back after a.longer o: shorter period, though in airatber mo difit-d form.-- As un illustration, tin - -crinbtine'of the " sixties " was a rcvi-'( vai of.the hoops of (he eighteenth cen tury, differing from thein only in be ing a "little less clumsy. If this per iodical return of fashions and fancie. is to be relied upon, we may expect to see our young society swells wearing muffs as they aid in the days of Charles II., and later on in those of Queen Anne. When, where, or how the mufl originated is not exactly known. Planche reproduces the figure of a lad., wearing a mu...
