FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 27 July 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Cutting Teeth n Advanced Aoe.—Some years ago, at a place called Ardnamullogh, about four miles from Castlcrea, in the county Roscommon, Ireli nd, I met (says a correspondent, of the London Notes and Queries) with a case somewhat similar to those already mentioned. I was sent for to see a woman named Dillon, aged seventy-five years, who was laboring under a singular form of mental aberration : her husbnnd had died about six months previously, nnd she firmly maintained the belief that she herself was dead also for the same period. I shall transcribe a portion of the notes which I made at the time, June 28th, 1843 : " A remarkable circumstance in this case is, that she has cut an incisive tooth in the lower jaw within the last few weeks, and is now cutting another; which fact confirms her in the strange belief that she is leading a post-mortem existence, and has commenced at infancy again ; for npon one of her daughters asking me if I thought it probable she would ...

SILKS, BRANDY AND CIGARS. Three leading principles have we, An Orion's belt of stars, , To guide the nation or the free: Silks, brandy and cigars. Were hattle here, we d bravely fight. And would not shrink for scars; But oh!—we'd tremble should we miss Silks, brandy and cigars.

f j)f fast of JJis Barf. BY J. F. SMITH, AUTHOR OF "THE SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, 1 ' "MINNIE ORET," ETC. CHAPTER XVIII. In the body of the fair were a number of petty traders who, literally speaking, had no fixed standing in the world ; the crowd, like the policemen, compelling them at each instant, to move on. One man vaunted that his corn salve would draw a tenpenny nail from an oak door. Another fellow, a vender of paste for sharpening razors, after blunting the edge of Ins instrument by chopping chips from a block of wood softer even than tbe heads of his customers, passing it once or twice over his strop, then split a hair with it. Many casuists do the same. * The old clium, the original chum, the real chum and his Eccles cakes," shouted an elderly man who had taken his stand directly in front of Webb's booth, with a basket before him tilled with the dainties he announced. •• Toss again, my little dear; better fortune next time. Stand back, you boys," he added, " and make way for th...

The Eyes. Tlip eye. when in health, roi|ttiros vorv simple attention, bathing with cold <>r tepid water. Irjng all that is needful. It is, boweid, so dfifiratc an organ that external causes easily affect it. and impair its beauty. Too strong a light fatigues the eyes : n, l( ] exposure tn currents nl'air. I'm;;-continued application, or night watcliings. are o«|iiallv injiiriom to them. In evening ocoopaUon, extremecare should be taken in the management of the light, which should lie considerably above the eves so that the glare may not shine into them. Inllattimation of the eyelid, accompanied by irritation, may be s|«eedily redueeil by holding it over the sleani of boiling water. Tliere is also an inflammation, often constitutional, that occurs in the membrane which covers the globe of the eye : this may be remedied by bathing with warm poppy water. It sometimes happens that the glands of theeve secrete Uw abundantly, and become glued together during the nigh...

OUR SUMMER GALE. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856

OUR SUMMER GALE. 'Tis not the balmy breath of Spring, So redolent with perfumes sweet Of tinted flower*, whose praise we sing— It is our Summer Gale we greet. In sooth he is a wayward chiel. This frantic Summer (tale of ours; When he's let loose he plays the de'il. And dearly loves to show his powers. At dewy eve be seeks rc|iose, But where he hideth none can tell; Perhaps lo soma dark cavern goes. Where gnomes and water sprites do dwell. But when the noon-day sun is high, Then comes be whistling o'er the hills— And as he madly rushes by, A merry roundelay he trills. The dust and rubbish in his track. He hurls on high with ftenditdi glee; For man or maiden turns not back. But bl.nds them all most recklessly.. Our Summer Gale does much delight To snatch your hat as he whisks by ; The lawless, rude, uncivil wight! It pleases him to make it tly. He sports amongst the ladies" curia, And wrestles with their silken robes— The sand and dust about them whirls. Inflicting troubles worse than...

LOVE ON A CARPET FOR ME. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 3 August 1856

LOVE ON A CARPET FOR ME. They may talk of love in a cottage t And bowers of trellised vine— Of nature bewitchingly dimple. And milkmaids half divine. They saaj! talk of the pleasure of steeping In the shade of a spreading tree, And a walk in the fields at inomir.g, By the side of a footstep free! But trive me a sly flirtation By the light of a chandelier— With music to play in the pauses And nobody very near; Or a seat on a silken sofa With a glass, of pure old wine, And mamma Ton blind to diccover The small white hand iv mine. * Your love in a cottage is hungry, Your vine is a nest for flies— Your milkmaid shocks the Graces, And simplicity talks of pies! You lie down to your shady slumber And wake with a bug in your ear. And your damsel that walks in the morning Is shod like a mountaineer. True love is at home on a carpet, And mightily likes his ease— And true love has an eye for a dinner, And starves beneath shady trees. His wing is the fan of a lady, His foot's an invisible thing...
