'rom Workhouse to Wedlock [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. By "Ambrosine."' , One of the most useful things any woman can possess in her wavdrobe is a basque bodice or lace coatee mounted on ninon, which always gives such a soft effect. To this may be added two sets of collars and cuffs, one of black velvet, with which she should wear a silk flower at the waist, and the other of white satin, hemstitched, to be fin ished with a bunch of lilies of the val ley. Neck wear is important., and at pro sent many delightful little items can be bought so cheaply that no one need look dowdy at the throat. Indeed, never I think in fashion's varied career have so many dainties been ready for inexpensive, and immediate purchase on the part of the woman who wants to look smart. *Much old-fashioned jewellery can be turned to other uses than that for which it was originally intended; and c?ar mid-Victorian graiidparents would probably be rather scandalised at the ir:everent way in which we destroy and remodel some of their most cherished poss...

Sir John Simon contrasted the speeches delivered yesterday by Mr Asquith and Mr Austen Chamber lain, and said the latter's was not conciliatory. Sir Edward Carson replied. Hie said the situation was intolerable, inasmuch as Unionists, pending the Prime Minister's suggestions, were asked to vote the estimates, includ ing the pay of the army which Liberals threatened to send to Ulster. If the Government proposed the exclusion of Ulster, he would con sult Ulstermen. Sir Edward Carson added that Mr John Redmond did not want Ulster's affections-only her taxes.
