A PENNILESS ARCHDUCHESS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
A PENNILESS ARCHDUCHESS. An amusing incident happened only the other day on a mountain slope not far from Vienna. The widowed Grown Princess Stephanie and her twelve year old daughter, Elizabeth, had undertaken a mouutain excursion together, and either intentionally or accidentally had become separated from the ladies, and gentlemen in attendance. Hungry and thirsty, they stopped at a small. inn, and asked for some refreshments, when suddenly the Grown PrinessM remembered ehe had nothing in her pooket wherewith to pay. Accordingly she took the landlady into ber confidence, informed her who she was, and asked her whether she would trust her. It is to be regretted that the landlady declined to believe them. Grown Princess Stephanie took the matter 'quietly enough, sensible oi its ludicrous fide,'but the little Archduchess was infuriated, and protested with flashing eyes to the landlav, * Aber wir sine dooh ohrliohe leute !' (' But I assure you we are honest people.')
THE PREDICTION CAME TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
THE PREDICTION GAME TRUE. ±5 ¡th. Signora Duse's father and grand- father were comedians. The latter especially was great in his .profession, and left such a name that even to-day a lane in the pic- turesque little town of Ghioggia, hits native place is called Calle Dase. The great actress was born in 1859, during a visit the mother was paying with her husband to Venice. To convey the infant to ohuroh for baptism she was put in a oryBtal basket and the pro- cession Btarted, headed by the priest. The Austrian soldiers, then occupying Venice, thinking it was a procession with the relies of some saint, presented arms, whereupon her father exclaimed : ' What, an armed force rendering . homage to my ohild ! She will have a glorious future !'
WINDFALLS FROM LOYAL SUBJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
WINDFALLS FROM. LOYAL SUB ! JEOTS. How many times since her accession to thc throne the Queen has been remembered ir the wills of loyal and more or less obscure subjects, it would be impossible to say ; foi of the bequests that are being continually made to various members of the Royal Family, the public does not hear a tithe. Oi the comparatively few instances where de- tails of such bequests have leaked out, the most recent is furnished by the will of the late Mr Henry Waymouth Gibba, Q.G., O.B. This gentleman, who died a little while ago, at the age of seventy-six, was, between the years 1852 and 1858, tutor to the Prinoe of Wales, and that ho never seemed to cher- ish an affection for his distinguished pupil is proved by the fact that to our future Bong Mr Gibbs bequeathed a portrait of himself, painted by G. F. Watts, R.A. To Her Majesty he left a packet of letters, kept 'in the red box which contains my patent, as Queen's Connoel ' ; to the Duke of York and tue Duohess of Fife...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
VAEIEX'IES. -» America spends mora money on education than any other country. A traveller can nowadays journey around tho world in fifty days. In 1544 the cold in Holland was so intense that wine was sold by the block. lt is affirmed by many doctors that eating beef regularly is bnd for the temper. A peer who becomes bankrupt is dis- qualified from sitting in the House of Lords. The expenses of eight oats are regularly shown in the accounts of the Midland Railway. Insurance companies claim that cycling is more dangerous than travelling either by railway or ship. A curious theory lately revived is that the sap of a tree ebbs and flows in some way in sympathy with the ocean. A carp can be kept alive out of water for twelve hours by placing in its mouth a piece of bread soaked in brandy. The ostrich lays the largest egg. Ita weight is about three pounds, and it is con- sidered equal to twenty-four hen's eggs. About five million pills are consumed in England every week. The oity of Mexi...

A CHINESE FORTUNE-TELLER. Tho proper thing to do in Ne sr York just /: now Í8 to have your fortune told by a Ohirieíe»' ' priobt. Recently a new prieet oauie to Chinatown and began telling fortunes. The* idea took like wildfire, and fortune telling or fortune seeking-has become the- rage. ' People who never visited that weird seotion. . of New York known au Chinatown are now going there for this purpose. Women of fashion, women in silks, and. . women in the lower walks of life, all moved by the same impetus, superstition and curi- osity, seek the divining priest. Mea go too, and seem quite as anxious as the women to> ¡look at their future through Celestial eyes. The quest loads tho soaker after fortune . into strange regions.

PEDIGREE HUNTERS IN THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. A SAMPLE OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
I PEDIGREE HUNTERS IN THE PUB- LIC LIBRARY. A SAIÍPLH OF IT. A very fat woman carrying an asthmatio pug in her arma came panting up the stairs the other day and confided to the genial gentleman who is in charge of the referenoe department that she wanted to know all about the Jones family. . I'm. in a hurry, too,' sbe remarked, ' for I only have twenty minutes.' Without a smile the librarian took down his well thumbed genealogical index and turned to Jonee. ' There, madame, is the first step,' he remarked. There were more than 150 separate references to the Jones family, extending over several pages. lt would take a year to examine them thor oughly. After having this explained to her, not without some difficulty, the fat woman said she didn't think ehe oould spare the time, and waddled down the steps with her asthmatic pug. My attention was drawn to a lady dressed in black who was seated at one of the out- side tables, surrounded by books and a per- fect litter of scribbled paper. H...
FOR LADY CYCLISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
FOR Ii AT)Y OYOIilSTS. Smooth faced cloth or oovert coating is infinitely to be preferred to rougher and . more dust catching fabrica for cycling skirts. A really reliable covert coating is, perhaps, a trifle more costly in the first instance, bot the wear is undeniable, and consequently in the long ran it is, perhaps, an economy. The newest and smartest colours for this material are a dark blue-groy, and a particularly effective mottled green in a somewhat olive tint, but there are many who will cling1, with an affection born of experi- ence, to the serviceable dust brown, which -always looks well under all circumstances.

A SAILORS' PROPHET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
A SAILORS* PROPHET. In a dingy little shop, half devoted to the vending of dusty sweets, and the other half to still more dnsty tobacco, in the neighbour- hood of the London docks, resides an old woman who is acquainted with more sailors than probably anyone else in the world. She has a reputation of foretelling marine events, and is known in nearly every port in Europe and America as the 'Sailors* Prophet.' 'Yes,* she said, rather disobligingly, *I can foretell the fate of ships and seamen, and have done so for years now. I know what' will happen long before the time. I always know; , ' How do I know ? Oh, I know,* she oontinued, with a knowing shake of a shaggy grey head. * My man was a sailor, and It . knew when he was drowned. I knew he would bo drowned. I told him so, and where and when, and it happened just as I had cold' him. ' Sailors from all parts nf the world oome to me, and I tell them what will happen. But they don't ask me how I know.

The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY, SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 2 July 1898
The Liverpool Herald PUBLISHED EVERY, SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1898. &nbsp; THE Prince of Wales, a few years ago, in a speech dealing with; industrial politics, hap- pened on the phrase-" We are all socialists now." There was no doubt much sincerity, if a little sarcasm, in the remark. Plagiaris- ing the point scored by the Prince, it may be said " We are all Federalists now." Mr. Want, whom nobody ever credited with a courteous acquaintance with the idea of unity, now asserts he is a Federalist. One can al- most imagine the skeleton of the late Sir John' Robertson rising. from the grave and shaking clenched knuckles at him. But " we are all Federalists now." Mr. Reid, who hackled the life out of the Commonwealth Bill--his handy work with others-is now desirous of patching up a constitution with material of strange and alluring manu- facture ; material, by the way he rejected &nbsp; at Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne. But then we are all ^Federalists now." ...
