HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

HUMOUR. Professor de Morgan found out by matte-. : matical computation that an eggshell is eo stroDg as to be ab'e to support a maar ^ weight. People -who doubt this can put one * in their coat-tail pocket and try it. Wife (to third husband)-' If you fdl 89 unwell, John, I think we had better send for.. my old family physician.' Th'rd husband - (somewhat hastily)-' No, my dear, I would prefer to send for 6ome one eite.' 'Women cannot be satirical,' says a writer, 'any more than they can be humorous.' So. How is it that when a man, after courting a girl for seven years, proposes, she says-1 Oh, George, this is so sudden!' ' Did you hear that Mrs. Smith is having- - _ her picture painted?' 'Yes, indeed; painted in oil.' 'Well, I never! In oil? 2 she ever wants to have a good likeness, she II have to be painted in vinegar.'

An African Gold Town. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

An African Gold Town. Barbertown! Two years ago a few pros pectors had pitched tents here, and now it has all the settled appearance of a town. It contains 15 00 houses of all descriptions, mostly of zinc, although many are of brick, mud, and grass, and a population estimated at 4000. It derives its name from Messrs. Hilton and Grey Barber, two well known Colonial gentlemen who were amongst the pioneers. Barberton is situated on the sloping elevated ground in the S.E. corner of the De Kaap Valley. It is right under the hills, and commands an extended view of the whole valley, walled in by mountains from 500 to 3000 feet elevation. It requires some stretch of the imagination, as we saunter into Mr. Jacob's Horse Shoe Restaurant, to think that not over threo years ago this valley was the haunt of lions and elephants. It does seem extraordinary that on a spot where Dutchmen could not be got to settle we should be served with Guineas's stout by a smiling Hebe, at a well-appointed bar, b...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

ODDS AND ENDS. Two hundred thousand infants, iinder two years old, are belieYed to be farmed out in France. The Severn Turn.el is miles long, and is the longest in England; it extends 2|- miles beneath the Severn, at a depth of 45ft. to nearly 1000ft. below the bed of the river. The tunnel joins the South "Wales TJnion line at Pilning, on the Gloucester side. The. Princes and Princesses under George III. received £507,288 a year, while under the present Queen they receive only £158,000 ; the Civil List of George III. being at the same time £1,172,000, while that of Queen Vicoria is £385,000. In Breslau, Germany, a chimney fifty-four feet in height has been constructed entirely of solid blocks of paper firmly compressed to gether, the blocks being placed carefully one on the top of the other, and joined together with a special cement. The chimney is non inflammable, and, by the nature of the material, quite secure from lightning. A precious stone of much interest is an opaque white h...

London Society. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

London Society. Prinoe Albert Victor bids fair to prove himself a chip off the old block, with little of the bonhommie, good nature, and ease which hare excused so many of his father's indiscretions, (writes a Sun correspondent.) j Cold, ungracious almost, in society, he has yet succumbod to the advances of fair matrons who have undertaken to conqucr hi« shy awkwardness. Rumor has been busy with his entanglements, and some of hisi travels have not been unconnected with a mandate from .high quarters in the hope of freeing him. Following suit come the prince's set, the countless battailions of the.wealthy un employed, who copy their leader in every button of his waistcoat, in the length of his cuffs, the seams on his gloves, the colors of his-overcoat, the width of Ms lapels, the size of his gardenias. Iiittle wonder that one and all, the lordling and thfe guardsman, the dashing parvenu and the enii hid commoner, should scorn to look at a girl to dance, ride, or walk with her-when mar...

ART & LITERATURE. Dickens-Ana.. Among those characters of Dickens who have esseatial individuality, Tony Weller and Mrs. G-amp stand out as perhaps the best ex amples of solid characterisation in Dickens's works.

SKETCHES. A LONDON RESORT. SCENES AT THE WESTMINSTER AQUARIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

SKETCHES. A LONDON RESORT. SCENES AT THE "WESTMINSTER AQTJATjTOM. ACROSS a spacious roadway and looking upon the grey, majestic pile of Westminster Abbey, stands the Boyai Aquarium, a long high building, capable of holding 20,000 people. The interior is well lit by day by a continuous glass-arched roof, not very flicamilur in construction to the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, and, like that building, the Aquarium is surrounded, except where the theatres occur, by one large gallery This gallery of enormous length is subdivi ded as its requirements suggest. At the farthest end is a magnificent organ. It fronts the spectator as. he.is comfortably seated at a curtained dining-tahle in the restaurant that occupies the other entire end of the balcony, between him and the organ, the long space of gallery is filled by smoking rooms, private boxes, reserved seats, picture galleries, billiard-rooms and show chambers to let. One, by the way, is now occupied by an American tatooed lady, Mme. de Bu...

Bangles, Brooches, and Tea-Gowns. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

Bangles, Brooches, and Tea-Gowns. However, to return to our presents. Ban gles and brioches are as popular as ever, and just- now the fancy is for moonstones, carved to represent a female face, with a crescent of diamonds attached to it. These effigies of the moon appear both as safety-pin lace brooches, or as bangles, and are very pretty, the soft cloudy surface of the moonstone in creasing the effect of the brilliants, which of course vary in size with the price of the jewel. One brooch I saw at Crouch's, in Regent street, the_ great Scotch jeweller, amused me much, being neither more nor less than a gigantic ' Scots Jock' salmon-fly fixed to a golden pin and body. The most lovely tea-gowns are to be had just now, and as they are worn now for demi toilettes, they are not altogether extravagant I luxuries. One I saw was made of two shades of an indescribable yellowish terra- cotfca, the darker one forming the dress with a full Watteau pleat, and falling loose and open over a full f...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. There is a barber's stop in New York city on a busy, popular thoroughfare, that is run entirely by women, and for the benefit of that sex. It rose as a result of the necessity which every woman finds herself under of cutting her bang, or having it cut, every two or three weeks. The woman who wears a curled bang c?n manage to do this for her self periodically; but those who wear the little smooth, pointed fringe on the forehead, which is known as the Russian bang, are forced to apply to someone skilled in ton sorial duties, who can shorten that appen dage .without utterly destroying its shape, for all the beauty it possesses depends on the ex actitude of its outline. Then there are women who have thin or greasy hair, requir ing constant shampooing, and those whose hair is prone to split at the ends, making it necessary to clip or scorch them. The skil ful attendants in this women's barber shop undertake to relieve their customers of all anxiety and exertion regarding ...

POETRY. A SUMMER MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

POETRY. A SUMMER MEMORY. I remember an evening, Anevening in one far June, The son seem'd loth to leave tie sky, To a young impatient moon. The yellow sands lay waiting For the sea'e long cool embrace; We watch'd the ripples breaking, Joke smiles upon its face. The green trees nestl'd closer To the broad breast of the liill; The twilight's glamour gathcrVl, And the day -was with us still. And a eadness bom of beauty, And a joy to pain aide, Touch'd all that lay without us, And liusli'd my soul within. ,A silence stepp'd between us. - "We seem'd to stand apart; Yet I thought youreyes grew tender. And I know what filled my heart. Bat the words were never spoken, And the distance wider grew, Till lie world of waves was lying . Between me, love, and you! Kb bridge might ever cross it. I watch'd you torn away, And I went back to duty, 'lis all a woman may. But I never shail be nearer, The thrilling- heights of bliss Unless the next world gives ns, The love that here we miss Than when in ...

Destructive Fire at Petersburg. MESSRS JUDELL & CO'S FINE STORE AND THE NATIONAL BANK COMPLETELY GUTTED [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

Destructive Fire at Petersburg. MESSRS JUDELL & CG'S FINE STORE AND THE NATIONAL BANK COMPLETELY GUTTED Shortly before seven o'clock on Tuesday eveiiiug last the dread cry of fire was raised in the streets of Peters burg. From the first there could be no doubt as to the locality, the sky above the show-room sky-lights of Messrs Judell's store being illumined by a bright red glare. In a few moments j a great crowd had gathered, but as it was evidently impossible to save the bnilding attention was at once turned to removing the furniture from the bank, which from the first was doomed, the Manager (Mr Gordon Hall) re ceiving every possible assistance from a host of willing helpers-foremost amongst them being the Resident Engineer, our newly arrived Wesley an minister, the local miller and others. Soon after the crowd gath ered a report circulated that dynamite was stored in the cellar, when some thing very much like a panic en i sued, one valiant townsman (who, bv the way, live...

An Evening on a Turtle Island. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888

An Evening on a Turtle Island. Two years ago I -was cruising 111 a small schooner in the neighbourhood of New Guinea, searching for pearlshell. Early in the afternoon of a beautiful cloudless day we sighted a long, low sandbank, and, heating np to it, came to an anchor about a mile dis tant, in a depth of eight fathoms. The water was clear as glass, and the only living crea tures visible in its depths were two large sucking fish, which were swimming about below the vessel. The habit of these fish is to attach themselves to the bottom ef a £}.ip in a position from which they can dart out and seize any morsels which may be - thrown overboard. They are about 2ffc. long ?when lull grown, their skin is grey on the back and sides, and white underneath, life© that of a shark; and they have no teeth to . fill up a very wide mouth, adorned by a curious projection of the under lip. The most remarkable part of the fish, however, is the sucker, situated on the top of the head. This is shaped li...
