Why Weddings In May are Unlucky. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Why Weddings in Mav are Unlucky. It haB been considered unlucky to be mar* ried in May ever since the days of Ovid. In ancient Rome there was held in May a festival called theLemuria, or FeaBt of the Lemures. which was a ceremony in honour of the Speeches of Departed Souls. It be- ? came with the Romans what we should call ' bad form ' to have matrimonial feasts at the BeaBon of a solemn ritual, being, no doubt, thought to bo an insult to the dead to marry at such a time. From this a number of stories grew of the revenge made by the outraged ghoBts upon those who dared to disregard them, and if anything unfortunate happened to a couple who bad been married in May it would, of course, have been put down to retribution. So the tradition ot ill luck arose, and its influence has lasted ever since, even to our time.

Time-Telling by Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Time-Telling by Flowers. The fact that certain species of flowers open and close at particular hours has been utilised by a gardener to add a unique decoration to the grounds of Mr. John D. Rockefeller, the famous Oil King. It con sists of a flower-bed that can be used as a clock. The bed is circular arid is divided into twelve parts. Each part contains a figure composed of a flower that opens or closes at the corresponding hour. Thus the two-Bpace is occupied by all. mado of hawk week, which closes at 2 p.m. precisely. The. hands are stationary, of course, and are composed of the common yellow dandelion, which opens at 5.30 a.m., and closes at 8.30 p.m., and point to arrangements of flowers representing these figures.

A Protective Tariff. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

A Protective Tariff. It has been admitted by the best authorities that at least eighteen months must olapso before tho Federation of tho Australian colonies is an accomplished fact. We think that at least three years will pass before the Fed oral Government gets into working order and commences to pass Acts for the govern ment of the whole of the colonios. Tfc is generally admitted that the policy of Pro tection will be the policy of united Austra lia, and that our own industries are to have the benefit of onr own markets. But what are wo to do during the next throe years ? Is tho so-called freetrade policy to be con tinued in this colony, or aro we to start at once to protect our own people ? As fedora-;, tionists we ai'e satisfied to wait and let tho Federal Government arrange fiscal matters, knowing that ilie policy will bo protection.
