Madame Sarah Bernhardt is hippy again. She has got a new coffin to replace the old one which some few months ago, along with her other personal effects, was seized by her relentless creditors. The present coffin is daintily lined with bine silk, and at the head has a soft little pillow trimmed with Valenciennes lace. It is Sarah's grim humor to sleep in her coffin sometimes ; and to bo quite consistent she dresses herself in something not unlike a shroud. When she goes on tour she persists in taking her coffin with her, despite the remonstrances of her husband and friends. Her ceffin always stands against the wall in her bedroom, with the lid on, however. Sarah is clearly one of those wise people who take time by the forelock, and hold tbemselvee prepared for an emergency. During 1888 L 2,83 0 1000 was coined by the Melbourne mint*
