TRIAL MARRIAGES. WOMAN ADVOCATE DENOUNCED^ The New York correspondent -of the London 'Daily Mail' states that on excited discussion has followed tbe suggestion of 'trial marriages,' termin able by mutual consent if found unsuit able aud In cases where there is no off spring, contained iu Mrs Elsie Clows Parsons's book, 'The Family' (des cribed iu Friday's 'Herald.') Similar suggestions for tbe improve ment of marriage have been made many times before, but the social and intel: lectunl standing of Mrs Parsons lias at tracted a wide and serious attention to her daring suggestion which uone of the others ever received. Prominent ministers of nearly all de nominations throughout the country have made the book the subject of their discourses, denouncing it as an illustra tion of Iiow near modern civilisation ifj to paganism. Dr. Morgan Dix, preaelj ^ big at the fashionable Trinity C'lmrcy' said that it was the strengthening of tb-fl marriage tie, not tbe looseuiug of it, | which modern c...

THE POPLAR INQUIRY. REPORT ON THE GUARDIANS. ' ? The report of Mr J. S. Davy, C.B., Chief jeneral Inspector of the Local Govern ment Board, on the Inquiry which he had during June and July last conducted Into the affairs of the Poplar Union was is sued as a Blue-book recently. The re port points out that between 1894 and 1904, during which time the population of Poplar had remained about the same, there had been a great rise in the pau perism ot the Poplar Union. The number of indoor paupers had risen from a mean number of 2623 to 3465; tho outdoor relief figures had risen from 2295 to 3677. The cost of Indoor relief rose from 1/34,098 In 1894 to L60.142 in 1904; the Increase in outdoor relief was from L12,395 to L24,399. Meanwhile the rates had risen to 12s in the £. In a consideration of the conditions of the district, Mr Davy says that a diffi culty is the casual employment of women in the match-making, jam-making, and other local industries. Many of these , women are either dire...

HOW TO WIN. A GUIDE TO COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907
HOW TO WIN, A GUIDE TO COURTSHIP. Eliice Beere writes in the London 'Daily Mail' :— Probably no question has been so gravely pondered by the average yr ing man ot every age as this, 'How shall I win her?' | To wrestle with the problem young men have trudged weary m'.les, and have tramped the floor in a fever of Impotent longlnj while this question has remained unsolved. But is any of this necessary? After all, if a. lover will only conform to a few simple requirements of the case, and move along the lines of a reasonable course, be can almost certainly win the ! lady of his choice. | With the first man who comes wooing even the most stand-offish girl becomes well aware of the joints in her armor, and strives desperately to conceal the fact. The girl who seems so proud and haughty and distant to her admirer is in ' reality more like the timid, frightened bird, who already begins to feel the fas cination of a love and interest which she unconsciously recognises has but to be | continu...

THE ELDERLY ONE. . ? - I A REMINISCENCES. i Myra Hamilton writes in tho ' Westminster Gazette' : — i Chance threw us togother in the first instance', and our intimacy was aided by the fact that tbe only duty tlie Elderly One seemed to have in life . was that of opening the gate ! pnr.h limn T wished t.n walk throuirh. so this, naturally, gave us many op portunities for polite conv- rsation. lie was always serious and always sensible in his remarks — so sensible, indeed, that any ill-timod jest of mi own was received with a forbidding silence and a cold steady gaze from an immense pair of grey i.'ycs, until 1 had redeemed my failure to spnrklu with either a more suitable observa tion or, at least, a sixpence.

COSTUME MODELS. WHAT THEY EARN. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907
COSTUME MODELS. WHAT THET EARN. Mr justice ifargrave Deane, in a case reported in tbe 'Daily Mail' of the 21st November, commented upon the fact that he had come across cases where young ladies of fine figure were receiving very high pay as dressmakers' models. The matter arose in a divorce case, in which j it was stateu tne husband had sent his i wife an advertisement from a Sunday paper asking for two young ladles as 'costume models; good figure; terms 5s an hour.' 'Five shillings arr hour?' said the prin cipal of a large and fashionable dress making establishment.. 'Surely It must be a misprint for '5s a day.' Thirty shil lings a. week, rising perhaps to L2, is tho usual rate of pay, according to the ex perience of the model. Experience is most certainly necessary. It is not enough that she should be an attractive | looking girl with a fine figure. Costume models need training. Some have to spend hours daily before a mirror to ac quire the carriage so necessary to dis play a gown...
EARTHQUAKE MISERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 31 January 1907
EARTHQUAKE MISERIES. A correspondent writes in tbe 'Daily Mail'; enclosing a letter from u friend who was. engaged at an English college In Limache, Chile, during the recent earthquake. The letter graphically describes the scene, nnd says: 'Fancy us with eighty nine boys to look after with no roof to | shelter us; the rain coming down, and the earth quaking or shivering at every moment. What a night ot sadness, ex pectancy and worry! Words fail me to give an adequate description of the whole scene. Thus we remained In the open for a fortnight. I had not even a pair of shoes to put on1, nor a cap on my bead, until some good person took pity, on me.' Other. Englishmen also lost everything. s Our correspondent says that although much has been done to help the sufferers from the earthquakes, there must be many left all but destij-ute and with per haps no means of reaching England. He feels many niio would Jam
