To follow closely after the ' Reminiscences of Mrs. and Mr. Bancroft,' there is promised another volume of theatrical experiences. 'The Life and Reminiscences of John I>. Toole.' Mr. H. Rider Haggard appears to have a formidable rival in the anonymous American author of the serial story ' A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder,' now publishing in Harper's Weekly. Frank R. Stockton, the novelist, said recently that he first worked on the Philadel delphia Post and found the work not very hard. Then he went to New York as a writer of short editorials on a weekly called Hearth and Home, and he found the work veiy much harder. Then he tried Scribnei's Monthly, where the work became harder stall, and he feared that he might be employed on an annual and break down.

An Ice Mask. EFFECT OF THE RECENT BLIZZABD ON THE FACES OF EXPOSED PERSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

AH ICC MASK. KFFiX'I OF TJ££ EECENT BLIZZABD OiT THE FACES OF EXPOSED fEESONS. Hueon, D.T.-?' One singular effect of the recent gale and snow, combined with, the cold,' says Sergemt Glenn of the Govern ment Signal Service, stationed at Avon, 'was to freeze the eyes shut and then form an ice mask over the face. The wind would drive the fine hard snow into the eyes, causing' them to water. The enow would mix with the water between the eyeUds, and the cold wind would at once bind the lids together by an ice band. Repeated removal of this would inflame the eye-ball so that a film wonldform obscuring tho sight. After this film formed, the presence of the ice was a relief to the in flamed eye. The eye would soon be frozen so close that nothing but steady artificial heat would relieve it. ' It is also a strange fact that those res cued with their eyes and the entire lower part of the face covered with the ice mask did not suffer from frosted faces. Any desperate at tempt to remove the mask...

MUSHROOM CAVES. A Profitable Parisian Industry. Paris Correspondence in S. F. Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

MUSHROOM CAVES. A Profitable Parisian Industry. Paris Correspondence in 8. F. Chronicle. The Municipal Council are going to compel mushroom cultivators to pay rent for the gal leries of the numerous abacdened quarries under Paris that they have until now been using free of all charge. Forty odd years ago there were none of these subterranean cham pignon parks; no w they count by hundreds of acres, give employment to as many as 1400 persons, and the value of mushrooms produced annually is enormous. Paris stands in the centre of a vast geologi cal basin, the bottom of which is'composed of chalk beds, through which run many strata of soft sandstone. Just above the chalk are beds of potter's clay, and above them is a stratum of soft limestone mixed with deposits of gypsum. Thus all the materials needed for building purposes are found beneath the surface of the Builon \vhich the city stands, and for centuries the work ot extracting them has been going on. The result has been that all aro...

OUR SLAVES. The Position of Chinese Women in San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

OUR SLAVES. The Position of Chinese Women in San Francisco. All phases of Chinese female life are to be found in the diminutive but Chinese commu nity in the midst of Sau Francisco- The rich man has his delicate doll, his Kit Fat Taai or " Golden My," who presides over his household as best she may, ?with her feet which are not feet and her shattered health. She is her husband's one wife, but the lenivnt customs of her country permit him to take into his household as mai^j concubines as his puise will allow. The poor aian has his slave who, for decency's sake, is dubbed his wife. He has bought her with the savings of a yen. Henceforth, she will share with Lim the monotonous misery of a pauper's life, ready at any time to take fcer place beside another man if her husband1 f resources should become too limited to y eld her support. But more truly Oriental than, the lot of these women is that of the larger class im ported into this city to lead lives of shamo for the profit of their ma...

V.—THE AWAKENING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

.THE AWAKENING. 'Ha! Ha! Ha!' What mocking laugh was that ringing through the air ? Consciousness was return ing, and with it the sound of harsh, discord ant merriment. Again came a peal of laughter. "Was it my own voice, and was I a lunatic ? I opened my eyes and looked about. I was still lying on the floor, but not by John's bedside. John seemed to be sitting in a chair with a book in his hand. I stared at him in a state of bewilderment. Again the laugh. It was his voice. Then he spoke. ' Do you want me to come and help you up?' ' "Where am I, and what has happened ?' I asked. 1 Tou appear to be sprawled on the floor, and it is quite evident that you fell asleep and rolled off the couch,' he answered. At these words I hastily rose and pulled my wits together. The truth was soon ap parent. Following eur discussion of dreams I had read " Zanoci " until sleep had stolen upon me, and both the conception and carry ing out of the plot to convince John were but the visions of a dream. I ...

IV—THE DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

IT-THE DBUG. John immediately proceeded to undress. In five minutes lie was ready for bed. Without delay I prepared for the further execution of my plot. 'John,' said I, 'there's a pint of cham pagne left in my closet. It strikes me that it would be just the thing with which to top off this night's adventure. What do you say ?' 'A most excellent idea,' was John's re Ply How smoothly everything was working! I opened the closet, drew forth the bottle, and wrenched off the wire with which the cork was bound. I then glanced furtively at John. He was winding his watch, with his back turned toward me. I quickly filled the glass which contained the drug, and extended it to John. He quaffed the contents with great relish, I meanwhile watching him over the rim of my own glass. He smacked his lips critically after his glass had been drained. ' It seems to me that there is a singular flavor to that champagne.' I felt a guilty thrill and affected not to hear him. * How sleepy I am,' was his nex...

SKETCHES. BRAWN AND BRAINS. IGNORANCE BENEFICIAL TO MUSCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 11 May 1888

SKETCHES. BKAWN AND BRASXS. Igkoeauce Beskficiax to Mtzscle. A few years ago, when professional boxing began to be recognised as a popular sport once more, the words ' gentleman fighter' were often seen in newspapers of the sporting class. One not infrequently read of lamenta tions because Sullivan preferred to be a 'tough' rather than a well-behaved citizen. Sporting and other writers habitually bemoaned the fact that the burly John L. could not combine intellectuality with his physical qualities. * He has only to behave like a gentleman to be universally respected,' these sapient authorities frequently exclaimed or "wrote when ihe telegraph announced the fact that Sullivan had again beaten his record as a hilarious drunkard. All these verbal lamentations and sermons in print were only so much breath and ink wasted. Sullivan kept right on the even tenor of his scampish ways, and utterly refused to bring the profession of pugilism up to the plane of an intellectual and gentlemanly p...

LADIES' COLUMN, -5* A Beautiful Squint. SCIENTIFIC TESTIMONY THAT IEEEGUXAE OPTICS ASE A3>VASTA.GEOUS. Among the noteworthy books promised for the year ? is a beautiful illustrated work entitled * Optical Obtuseness, or the Advant age of a Slight Squint.' The author of this remarkable contribution to the lore of the nineteenth century, is one of the most accomplished members of the San Francisco Academy of Sciences.

A Sensational Trial in Vienna. A sensational trial has been heard at the Vienna criminal court this -week. The facts of the case are not devoid of interest to psycho logists. In December last a commercial traveller named Alfred Frankenstein induced Julie Kunerih, a housemaid, to steal some diamonds from her mistress, replacing them by imitation, stones. In January Frankenstein, declared to his accomplice that the theft would probably be discovered during the Carnival, and that therefore it would be advisable to abstract all the jewellery and to feign a robbery -lor which purpose he would discharge a revolver into the upper part of her arm. The girl consented, but when the appointed day came, Frankenstein, alter having taken all the valuaDles upon which he could lay his hands, saot straight into the woman's breast, and left ber for dead in the room.
