Then there would be more whispering in the hall ; the sound of the front-door furtively closing ; and mine host would slip back to me and our dropped con- versation, which was engrossing, save for these interruptions, for I found him an enthusiast over his art, and quite willing to give me such informa- tion as was possible. All the same, it was somehow uncanny, and I was not sorry to get away, still free and unfettered by any " dark gentleman with means " or " fair young man, of a loving dispo...- sition " — a description that many of the would-be bridegrooms indulge in. One breach-of-promise case I remember well — though whether it was the outcome of one of " Holt's " advertisements I do not know — where the romantically minded, would- be suitor described himself as " a young man of military appearance in the millinery business. " There was once a Melbourne man who — for fear, I suppose, of the torment of jealousy — advertised for the "ugliest woman in Australia " as his wife — got her, too, and has her still, for the gods love beauty.
