Prince Bismarck's Elder Brother. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 April 1888

Prince SisuiarcU's Slider Brut | Some of the French newspapers profess surprise that Priace Bismarck should possess an elder brother, -who lives in a comparatively ; retired sphere, has never been talked about and never Veen pushed into a heavy salaried berth, notwithstanding his younger brother's immense influence. - This fact must also astonish those diplomatists . and statesmen who lay hands on all the plunder they can reach; for themselves first, and then for those dear friends and connections for rejiom they are expected to provide. The great Otto's integrity on this score is made much of by Gallic journalists, and earnestly recommended to the consideration of some of their own compatriots. The Duke of Orleans, son of the Count of Paris, is going to be put through a course of English military sports in India, beginning next month. He is to be attached to the Rifle Brigade, and discipline will in no wise be relaxed in his favor. Dr. Schweinfurth Bays that Emia Pasha before going...

It was at the tail end of a rather long' in terview t had with General Grant in the office of the Mexican International Railway Com pany, of which he -was then President, that tobacco became the subject of the conversa tion. General Grant had been sitting in his favorite fashion tilted back in an oak aim chair with his feet resting on the table. He was smoking an immense cigar, the feliow of which he handed to me. It was some time before General Grant's troubles began with the injury to bis leg as he was leaving the carriage, and he was in good spirits. Exactly the words that hs used I cannot reproduce here, bat in effect General Grant sail this: ' You are a very young man, and I a-a old enough to give you advice, and I supposs I ought to tell you not to smoke.

SKETCHES. TO CABUli AKD BACK. A great many people have seen his High ness A"bdur Bahman, Ameer of Afghanistan, ally of the British Government, and a very strong ruler at close quarters. But few men have been permitted to see -him as he appears in the midst of his own people,.in the ruu swing of bis daily and xoyal office work, and the government of such~turbulfint territories as those of Afghanistan. A chance which, since times are troublous 8nd the. lives of rooparahw in the East uncertain, may never occur again, has fallen in the way of Dr. A. O'Meara., the well-known dental surgeon of Upper India, and that gentleman has much to tell about it. Some few months ago, it. will be remem bered, the Ameer demanded the services of a dentist, for reasons -which we may presume appealed to Mm: strongly at the time. In response to that demand Dr. O'Meara, taking the word of the. Ameer for-a .sufficient guarantee for the safety of his life, went to Gabul on August' loth." As the telegraph alre...

AUSTRALIAN TRADE WITH AMERICA. From the S. F. Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 April 1888

AUSTRALIAN TRADE WITH AMERICA. From the S. F. Chronicle. There are several reasons why the trade be tween this port and those of Australia should receive attention. In the first place, its actual condition is a factor in the commerce of San Francisco which is not to be despised. In the [ next place, it has possibilities that are not | jet, perhaps, fully appreciated. In the third place, San Francisco is the mailing port for I New Zealand and Now South Wales, and as such has a certain international importance. To properlyjcoiisiderthis subject, it will be best to consider the present condition of the Australian trade with this country, the United States, and to do that easily, yet thoroughly, there is presented the following table, com piled from the last report of the Chief of the Bureau of Statistics. This first table shows the EXPOETS BY APTTOT.V.S AND "VALUES FBOM THE UNITED STATES TO THE BBITISH POSSES SIONS IN AUSTBAXIA FOB XHE YEAB END ING JUNE 30, 1887 : | Agricultural Implem...

TALE. The Belle of San Miguel. BY FOEBES HKEEITIAS'S. IT was down on the Pecos that Captain. Dick ' ilosicr first met and adopted Mm. Captain Dick was riding over from the X Bar X Ranch to the Barzee, of which he was the general manager, one pleasant' morning in October, and had just reached the ford by the Laberde grant, intending to cross the river, when upon the opposite bank he spied a stranger. A eitieen of New Mexico approaches his fellow main with caution. Almost the first thing an acquaintance with the best society in that country teaches him is narrowly to inspect a chance comrade, and .to loosen his pistol in its bolster when coming within range. And so, before starting his horse into the water, Cap tain Dick had a look at the man across the stream. The two were not very far apart-fifty yards or so, for the Pecos was not wide there-and at that distance Dick saw that the other was a toll, gaunt saan of about fifty. His face was partly hidden behind a thin, scraggy beard tha...
