Miss Effie Baker, of Black Rock, has succeeded in making a booklet comprised of illustrations of Australian wild-flowers, which is among the best work-of the kind yet published in Melbourne. The booklet contains six colored prints of individual specimens of characteristic bush flowers, and the colors of these are faithfully reproduced, with exquisite softness through the medium of hand-colored photographs. Those who are looking for suitable Christmas souvenirs for friends abroad will find in Miss Baker's artistic production something of unusual interest and value.
Some of the hotels are now employing girl pages. This sort of thing is bound to happen — when man leaves. .,.
