YOUNG LADY'S COSTUME, CONSISTING OF OUTDOOR JACKET AND SKIRT. (See Illustration.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
YOUNG LADY'S COSTUJME, CONSISTING OF OUTDOORP JACKE1' AND SKIRT. (See Illustratioii.. . The costume is comprised of an open fronted jacket, worn with a full blouse md a plain skirt. The jacket defines the figure at the black in its outlines, which are produced by centre and side-back, shoulder and underarm seams. and has a full setting below the waist, the gores widening here to allow of this. A. flat collar is turned down around the neck and extends for a little over:the revers, which are turned bauc on each side of the" front. These revers taper to the waist from deep points in the shoulders, and the jacket is semi-fitted in front by a single dart lengthening to the bottom edge. The skirt is designed so that it can be shaped with a gore in front, or with a single seam at the back as preferred. In the latter case its length is taken from the width of the material, so as to bring edges that are in a contrarily woien -directiou toget her, an-I preventing the misshaping of.the. seam i...

FREAKS OF ABSET-MINDED MECHANICS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
FREAKS OF ABSENT-MINDED MIECHANICS. The absent-minded mechanic seldom, if ever, appears in print, notwithstanding there is a great many of him. We often read accounts of the peculiari ties of absent-minded individuals in other pursuits and professions. but somehow in reference to the mehanec nearly everyone seems to have kent silent.' When we first entered a machine shop as an apprentice, the first specimen of absent-mindedness that we remember was that of a workman who took down the pump-valves on a locomotive to grind them in. This individual had fre quently performed the same task previous to that without any trouble, but somehow he put in the upper valve of the pump up side down. The locomotive went out, and while running at a high rate of speed the water was turned on, when a loud report an nounced the fact to the engineer that he was minus one pump, it having been split from end to end by the enormous pressure generated within it. On one occasion we tok a locomotive out of the...

HEAD-DRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
HEAD-DRESSES. The turban and the fez are the favourite head coverings throughout the Molohamed~n world ; but. their arranlgement and ornamen-. tation vary infinitely, from the simple piece of linen orcotton which the common Arab winds round his head, to the richly embroi dered and jewelled silken scarf which con stitutes the head-dress of the sheikh or pasha. In former times fez and turban were worn together, but recently the fe-Ihas becoma the nicial head - covering of the regular Turkish army, and is now almost universally adopted by civilians as well. Many tribes, roaming or settled in parts more or less distant from the great towns of the Turkish cmpire, have stuck to the oithob dox turban. This is principally the case with the Arabs of the desert, and the Moor ish inhabitants of the northern coast of Africa adjoining the Mediterranean. In Tripoli, Tunis, Algeria, and Morocco the turban reigifs stpreme, and most elabo rately ornamented specimens are met with, csuecially amongst ...

Fashion Chat. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
Fashion Chat. Bodices differing frim the skirt which they accompy are a prevailing feature of fashion. Often these are of a striking contrast, - but----when- - designed- and arranged with taste, are very attractive. The materials chiefly used for such bodices are of a rich or decorative quality,.or if plain, are then added to with much effective trimming-such as coarse lace, embroideries, and the like. The sleeves as a rule repeat the material of the skirt, so that the bodice may then wear less the appearance of a blouse. As few seams as possible are favoured in bodices. They continue with the seams at the shoulder and side only, and the back may be drawn intl a few small pleats at each side of the centre, leaving the upper part quite plain, of course. The fron:s often are draped from the shoulder to the waist, or made full, and are finished off with a rour.d sash, or if the length is a little extended below the waist, then they are pointed. Much lace is draped about our bodices. Es...
OLD MEANINGS OF WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
oLD MEANINGS OF WORDS. -There I. quite a study of old minners in the present meaning of such words as base, villain, caitiff, and the like. Base formerly signified low in birth; but the pride of the aristocracy (who by that very word declare themselves to be morally the best) assumed that lowest birth meant lowest worth. A knave once meant only a boy. The patient Grisel bore "a knave child" to the cruel Marquis who had robbed her of her daughter. In German, the old word (with only a "b" for a "v") " knabe" or "'knave" still kneans "boy" simply, and is no term of re ,roach. Amongst us it was formerly brn by he boys in great lords' kitchens. These were eviled and beaten by the great lords, whom, l;hen they called " Knave I" turned up their igh and mighty noses. Caitiff, again, is nbuy the Norman-French form of the word captive. Dr. Trench, in his scholarly and interesting treatise on English words "nused ormerly in Senses Different from their Pre jent," observes that captivity tends t...

C.Y.M.S. Social. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 2 November 1894
C.Y.M.S. Social. The concluding social of the above society was held in the Town Hall, on Friday evening October 26th, and was attended by 40 couples. The comparative scarcity of dancers was in a measure due to the counter attractions of a dance at the Hibernian Hall, in aid of the Railway Stall at the approaching Fair; and the wet and stormy night no doubt inilitated against a larger attendance. The music was furnished by R.obb's band, which renders praise superfluous, and the floor was in. splendid going order. A programme of 16 dances was con cluded at 12, then after a few words of thanks to .those present, from the sec retary, Mr.- H. -Smith, tie g;.thering dispersed until next season. Mr. M. Dokling,ýas nsual, made an efficient. M.C.

BLUE BELLS OF SCOTLAN-D. The rose, summer's emblem, 'tis-England'a chosen tree, And France decks her shield with the stately fleur-de-lis; But brighter, fairer far than these, there blooms a flower for me; 'Tis the blue-bell, the blue-bell on Scotland's grassy lea, Where, from the dark, upapring the lark, the rising sun to see. My land ! native land I where afar my steps have been, Blue skies charm the eyes, and the earth is ever green; Yet dwelt my heart 'mid Scotland's glens, when aye in thought was seen. The blue-bell, the blue-bell amid the brackens green; And brighter far, than sun or star, the eyes of bonnie Jean. the thistle, Scotland's badge, up from free dom's soil it grew ; Its enemies aye found it hedged round wi:h rosemary and rue; And, emblem that her daughters were modest, lcal and true, Fromt ofi the rocks, amid their locks they twined the bell of blue The heathbell, the harebell, old Scotland's beil of blue.

Gymnastic Display. The second annual d:splay and 'con cert of St. John's Athletic Club tender ed to the parishoners and their friends, was held on Thursday evening last in the Orderly Room, Wil:iam street, the hall being crowded. The Rev. M. Whitten occupied the chair. Mr. J. Puliar opened the programme with an overture on the piano, after which the members went through their. exercises with the poles, which were done in a very creditable manner. Mr. .A Harrison sang " The Conquerer" in in-e style, but could not be heard. on account of the noise made by the mem bers walking about the place. We would draw the instructor's attention to this as we have bee' to similar dis plays, and the instructor does not allow the members to leave the plat form unti. they have finished their ex ercises.

On Saturday suf ficient progress had been made by the men, under the supervision of Overseer Duncan, to permit the Moonee Valley race traffic to go through. The road was again closed on Monday to allow of the streetroller further comhpressing the sur Lace. The northern side has also ,been ueetalled from the Haymarket to the Flenmington bridge. The road now is in a better condition than ever whilst- the cutting down of a slight declivity here and there has been of great benefit to the large vehicular traffic using it.
