THE STABS AND STRIPES. The Rev. Dr. Samuel Parkes Cadman, pastoi of the Central Congregational Church. Brook lyn. U.S.A.. tells a story of a patriotic small boy in his Sunday-school, whom he calls "Little Georgie." His teacher had told the class of the things that God had created in the begin ning. and then suddenly turned to the tiny youngster. "What did God make on the fourth day, Geor gie?" inquired the tutor. Now. the boy's thoughts were centred on » new and beautiful flag his father had just purchased, so. instead of the expected answer, "The sun. moon, and stars," Georgie confidently exclaimed: "The Stars and Stripes!" Involuntarily the teacher smiled, and the little man cried when she said he was wrong. "Weil." he replied, indignantly, "if he didn't make 'em, who did?"

PROFITS ON AN OCEAN LINER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

PROFITS ON AN OCEAN LINER. J * i What are the profits of a .great ocean liner in the day of prosperity is a question that has often been asked. Here are some interesting facts in connection with the last Journey of the Oceanic from Liverpool to New York.

The second-class passengers average £10 a head, and in this instance realis ed £2690. The third-class passengers pay £6 a day, and thus brought £7800. The total amount received was £25,126, Independent, of course, of the profit on wines, spirits, cigars, and the like, and the amount for cargo. The immediate expense of the Oceanic in making the trip is just £7000.

NOT TO BE QUICKLY DECIDED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

NOT TO BE QUICKLY DECIDED. Time was passing quickly, but the man of im mense brain power made no move. He sat seemingly absorbed in thought, and vn noticed, the large clock before him ticked away the moments of life, bringing him, even as it brings us all, to that bourne from which no tra veller returns. The minutes lengthened into houra, and the hours into days, but still he made no move. This man was but one-of the great human race, the other members of which played their separate gs»mes as their destinies or their judgment dic tated—some with joy, others with tears, and many with faces drawn and expressing neither one emotion nor another. • The years sped on. And yet he made no move. These chess matches take a devil of a time to play, and that's a fact. —"Town Topics."

THE CONVICT'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

THE CONVICT'S THEATRE. i The convict establishment at Irkutsk is the l only prison in Siberia that possesses a theatre. A correspondent of the "Daily News" visited the prison, and found in a big, upper room stage and sccnery and drop curtain complete. This, he observes, was luxury indeed. "I cannot give you a special performance," sa?d the Governor, "but we are very proud of our singing here; would you like to hear it?" We sat down and smoked cigarettes while a messenger was sent to hunt up half-a-dozen singers. They came in their prison garb, six intelligent looking men, and they sang three part songs as finely and with as much verve and expression as many a renowned choir.

A Hanging Railway. / jm* i i mtm i » ONE OF THE WORLD'S CURIOSITIES. Engineering ha® accomplished as much for the advancement of the world as electricity. It is difficult to find a spot where the modern engi neer cannot build a railway. During the laat few ( months of the year 1901 a new system of building \ was tried—a system which appears, even in this ) its earliest stages, to open up immense possibili ) ties. ) The most wonderful line under this new de ) parture ie that recently erected over the River ) Wupper, in Prussia. It is one (says Mr. Hj. ) Tayler, the writer of a "special" on it in wh ( English paper) of the most remarkable pieces of ( railway engineering in the world. It is the only ( suspended railway in existence that follows the S windings of a river, passes down the streets of S busy towns, and along country highways, the ) passengers being carried along in mid air, as it ) were, in long cars, suspended on a marvellously ) constructed overhead track. The line is kn...

LADY HENRY SOMERSET ON TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

LADY HENRY SOMERSET ON TEMPERANCE. Speaking at a meeting held at the Star and ; Garter, Richmond-hill, the other afternoon, in i connection with the British Women's Temper- J ance Association, Lady Henry Somerset said ; she wondered how much longer the temperance / party must exercise themselves in patience until ( they could get a sufficient majority to carry their { measures through Parliament. { Regarding Lord Grey's scheme she said that ( the idea was that if the public-bouse could be > run by a company instead of by the brewers > everything would be right. While she had the ; greatest respect for his lordship as a personal : friend, she could not conceive a greater danger j than the idea of a public-house being run on the < basis of a common trust. < A stranger, for instance, might visit a small < town under such an order of things.

There was, perhaps, never a stranger story than that told of Ann Wilson, whose body was found la the Lea (England) on a recent Sunday, She met a man, whose surname she did not know, yet she loved him, as the coroner's jury said, to suicidal madness. "Sid" was the only name by which this poor Jjiliet knew her Romeo, and even with that know ledge shl» could not write to him direct, having always to address her letters to him through one of his Meads.

BY POSTCARD. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

BY POSTCARD. It began by the literary girl sending what she thought was a Joke to the editor of the cmnic paper. He promptly returned it with a single ■word scrawled across it in blue pencil: "Old." "So are you," she answered on a postcard the same day. "Do you think so?" he scribbled under a pho tograph of himself that he sent to her. "Not at all," came the sly answer after she bad admired its many good points. "Are you?" Evidently this editor wanted to know a great dea'>. "What woman is?" was the enigmatic sentence on the next postcard. "Prove it." This young editor was nothing it not insistent. "Htre 'tis," And the photographs of some literary girls are not half bad. "Very fine," was as much as he dared to say on a postcard. . "Same to you." And the girl thought the queer matter closed. "Why don't you write at length?" "Can't." "Why not?" "Am otherwise engaged." ' "To whom?" "My future husband. My postcards have given out. Good-bye!"

PEACE OBTAINED. The young man In love is usually an unreason ing mortal, and displays bis amorous airs in season and out. Even church is made a place for indulging in "billing and cooing." A big church in the Midlands was famous for the flirtations which were indulged in it during service, and at last the minister resolved to do something to preserve decorum in the sanctuary. One couple, who sat in a conspicuous part of the gallery, were most annoying. They insisted on talking in lovers' language all through the ser vice, and were continually making a "ssh-ssh" noise. Attracted by thern, other members would turn in their direction and smile. This went on for several Sundays, but at length the worthy clergyman became exasperated. Stop ping in the middle of his sermon, he looked straight up to where the happy lovers were enjoy ing themselves, and in a tone of righteous anger exclaimed: "If that couple in the right-hand gallery there wHl come to me on Monday I will marry them for nothi...

'GLASGOW. Occasionally the form in which British peers ■!gn their names leads to curious mistakes. Not long ago, for instance, the Earl of Glasgow had occasion to send a telegram to the city from which he takes hie title. He walked into one of the telegraph offices in the West End of Loo don, and filled out a form. Hie young woman behind the counter was a typical specimen of a class which is the subject of frequent indignant communications in the London "Times." "You've not signed the telegram," she said to the Earl, who thereupon added his signature, "Glasgow." "You old fool; I told yon you hadn't signed It," exclaimed the young person .when the d« \ epatch wm returned to her. "Ain't you got sense ( enough to write your own name? How many ( times d'you suppose we want the address?" ( Lord Glasgow silently produced a card, which ' he handed to the pert young woman. The col ; lapso rtlch toUo.«l _ «.lly be Imwtot

( "Moreover, the light in the levee tent was ' rather dim, so it was hardly surprising that ■ about two out of every three subalterns who en- ( tered from the strong glare outside should ' glance nervously round, cut the Commander-in- / Chief dead, and bow solemnly to the officer who ) fulfilled the arduous duties of -'Persian inter- ) prefer!" j "But it was very funny, and I do not think that anyone enjoyed the...
