TO POETS. The Sad-Eyed Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
TO POETS Tfce Sad-Eyed Toutli. He was a thin and sad-loofcing youth, per haps twenty-five years of age, who brought to the editor a sonnet which he wished to see in print. That a man should live the quarter of a century without overgrowing the weak ness of liking to see himself in print "was, in. itself, a thing pathetic enough to attract attention, and the editor was not without a shame-faced feeling, as if he were looking in a retrospective glass as he regarded the caller. ' The sonnet might attract attention,' the poet said, ' because just now there is sa much interest in Oriental subjects. Tne editor looked at the speaker .with a compassion not untempered by a little amuse ment. ' No sonnet ever attracts attention,5 he an swered. . I£ you find that out too young, it may make you bitter. If you are lucky enough to have outgrown, the fever of youth before you become wise, the chances axe that this and kindred wisdom will ipereiy make you indifferent. However, in memory of the time...

Stage Art. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
Stage Art. It is frequently, justly or not, observed that at present scenic art is outrunning acting, and that we have only too many occasions given us in which, to admire the mounting of a piece and at the same time condemn the playing of it. Unfortunately, a good deal of tliis is due to the fact that re do not possess an official school of dramatic art to correspond with the-French Conserva toire, and our actors have consequently no authorative guides to assist thein in training themselves for the stage, a career which depends much more than is usually believt d upon a very general knowledge of mai:y ether arts besides that of acting. Many seem to think that an actor needs no teaching, but can depend entirely upon his own natural histrionic gifts. This is a fatil error. However talented he may be, he must be taught, not only what to do, but also what not to do. Haviag a great mat y characters to represent of whose conditions in real life he inustpersorce know very little, lie who ...

The Stylish Maiden. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
Tlie Stylish Maiden. She sits beside me in the square old pew ; Two little gray-gloved hands devoutly hold Her dainty prayer-book and her hymn book, too. Warm sunbeams fall aslant her head's bright gold. The preacher's words sound very far away. The sweet-voiced singers chant unheard by me. I -watch my darling's upward look, and say "Within myself; " Oh, would I were like thee! All else forgot; thy thoughts have flown above; Teo pure, too high for earth and such as I." Just then, with glinting eyes, my little love Lsaned close, and whispered with a smothered sigh: "That girl in seal-skin just across the aisle Thinks I don't know it's plush! Well, I should smile." -Anon. The Woman's Union of Vienna educates young women for bookkeeping, drawing, kindergarten work, dressmaking-, needlework and shorthand. When they are competent ia any department the union proceeds to find employment for them. The discovery of silk is attributed to one of the wives of the Emperor of China, Ho angti, who...

LADIES' COLUMN. Fashion's Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
LADIES' COLUMN. FasbiOH's Fancies. On nearly all handsome gowns is to be more and ever-increasing application of tin sel braid of some sort. Some have the whole front of the bodice covered with it. These tinsel braids so much in use are usually the form of flat half-inch-wide gal loon, of the color of the dress upon which it is applied, into" which is woven the tinsel threads-either gold, bronze, copper or silver -sojihickly that the original colour is hinted at rather than seen. All evening dresses this winter have sleeves. Those of black lace and gauze, for matrons, have generally a little arrangement of the gauze, puffed and beribboned and called by courtesy a sleeve, which comes down half way between the shoulder and the elbow. Others have a puff of the material for"" the sleave, which is caught up to the shoulder strap on the outer side of the arm, of which member they conceal but a very small por tion. An economical way of disposing of old wrappers of silk or cashmere, when th...

HUMOUR. Books That Have Helped Mc. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
HUMOUR. sr.n it r.-,; s Books That Bare Helped 31c, I have been asked by a friend to give bim a list xif books that have helped me. I do not know if he is aware of the fact, bat in the course of a very short career I have enjoyed an exceedingly varied experience. In ail the professions, from that of a youthful Napoleon of bankruptcy, up to the one which claims me as an honored member, I have plied my . energies-in all save one. I have yet to lay siege to such. honors as the pulpit affords, and until I can combine in. my person the graceful agility of a Talmage with the compo sed eloquence of Robert G. lugeraoll, Hoscoe Confeling, George Francis Train,-and the Reverend Adirondack Murray, I shall con tent myself with & pulpit on the outside of the church. Having followed, then, so many profes sions, it is no easy task to enumerate the books that have helped me. Indeed, it were far easier to make a list of those which have not helped me. To please a friend, however, I will do w...
SKETCHES. Women as Wives. VARYING VALUES OF THE DEAR CREATURES IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
SKETCHES. Women as Wives. TAHYTNG VALUES OF THE X>EAH CSEATtTBES HT DIFFERENT PAETS OF THE WOBLD. We rather plume ourselves m this country I upon our freedom from the European custom ! of marrying for money. We read with a j good deal of disgust of Iiow Englishmen hunt wives for the sake of their fortunes, and of the cold-blooded way in which girls of that I country sell themselves for what they call'an "establishment"; while the habits of the j French and other nations on the Continent I of Europe, who consider it indelicate for girls to have any preference in the matter, and where the parents of both parties ar range the girl's dowry as the most important question connected with marriage, seem to us barbarous in the extreme. But it is only when we come to realise how ! extremely, rare among the nations of the world is our view of matrimony that we shall j properly appreciate the value of the sentiment J on that subject which generally prevails in j j this country. - - ? j To wh...
The Opium Habit. SULPHATE OF QUININE SUGGESTED AS A REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
Tiic Opium Bablt. SULPHATE OF QUTNTN'E SUGGESTED AS A REMEDY. John Ferguson, a well-known resident of Ceylon, and newspaper proprietor, has ad dressed a. letter to the Anti-Opium Society on the value of sulphate of quinine, or even the inferior alkaloids from cinchona bark, as prophylactics and tonics, especially in low lying1 and malarial districts, -where people are addicted to the use of opium in order to re lieve the fever depression. The prevalence of the opinm-craving in many parts of the world is due, says Mr. Ferguson, to the people being subject to a low type of fever. This i? largely the case ia China. In England it has been shown that the consumption of opium, chiefly in the form of laudanum, is very large in the fen districts and along the lower banks of the Thames, especially about Gravesend. A Lin colnshire village druggist stated some years ago in a letter published in the newspapers, that he sold about two gallons per month retail, besides sixteen or twenfy ounces of...
POPULAR SCIENCE. Betraying a Hidden Malady. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 6 April 1888
POPULAR SCIENCE. Betraying a Hidden Malady. 4 How do I know that man had something the matter with his right ear?' repeated a Delaware-street aurist with whom a Journal reporter was talking. * Why, be cause he told me so. Didn't you see him do it?' The reporter confessed that he had not heard the man make any remark as he passed the window, where the anrist and the visitor were sitting. ' "Well, he did it. Ont there on the corner of my house I have a little tin sign containing the words, 'Eye and Ear.' Now, it is a very strange phenomenon, but nine men out of ten who are troubled with afflictions of the eye or ear will reveal the location of their diseases when they see that sign. They do it unconsciously. A man passes in a deep orown study. He is oblivious to everything. Even the direction and the style of his gait are me chanical. When he is opposite that sign, he is mechanically reminded that he is interested ia it, and he begins to investigate the magni tude of his interest. If ...
