A Terrible Ordeal. —lt takes a great deal to squelch a newspaper reporter, but the way how has been found out in Wellington. Miss Fiddler is giving lessons in cookery there, and the “Post” thus yarnsover the “ intensity of the situation” in which the pencilists found themselves : A table had been placed for the “ gentlemen of the Press” in front ofthe platform, and in full range of 200 female eyes of every degree of penetration. It-was too much. Fearless as the unhappy reporters usually are in the discharge of their functions, their well-known modesty in this instance got the better of their rigid attention to duty, and they shrinkingly retired to the rear of the imposing array of female loveliness and took their notes in a furtive and fear-stricken manner, which ought to have melted the heart of every female beholder.
