A SONG OF PTOMAINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
A SONG OF PTOMAINE. (BY "JIMMY.") Will you listen to my simple little ditty, Will you hearken while I airily digress On a subject not particularly pretty, Repulsive to the point of ugliness? In fact a less desirable acquaintance We couldn't well be forced to entertain; Who takes advantage meanly, Always bobbing up serenely— O the dinner table terror is Ptomaine! O a kicker and a sticker is Ptomaine—maine— maine! He's an everlasting horror with his "here we are again!" You may calculate you're clever, But he's just as fresh as ever. In defiance of your Science is Ptomaine! In the gentle German Sausage he sojourneth, He lurketh in the toothsome Saveloy; He entereth the Salmon-tin, and turneth The same into an Undertaker's joy. A most accommodating kind of party, A Cosmopolitan I must explain, He'll join a Turkish diner In a fowl from Cochin-China, So delightfully impartial is Ptomaine. O a lodger and a dodger is Ptomaine—maine— maine! He's a poor organic orphan, and he'll call around ...

Theocratic Unity. FINISH OF THE TRIAL. SENTENCES IN THE HOROS CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
Theocratic Unity. FINISH OF THE TRIAL —♦— SENTENCES IN THE HOROS CASE. In "The World News" of December 28 the &nbsp; fact was given that the principals in the cele- brated Theocratic Unity case had been sentenced to long terms of imprisonment. The latest London mail news, dated Decem- ber 20, gives the final scenes in this remarkable case. An exchange says Theodore and Laura Jackson, better known as Horos, were found guilty to-day by a jury in the Old Bailey on charges of immoral practices and fraud. The judge immediately imposed sentences of 15 and seven years' penal servitude upon Jackson, and his reputed wife respectively. The prisoners listened to the passage of sentence in evident astonishment, but main- tained silence. As the judge finished, Jackson turned from the prisoners' dock and walked down the steps. "Swami," as the woman head of the so-called "Theocratic Unity" has latterly called herself, smiled, bowed to the judge and Court, and followed her male companion to...

THE RECENT ENGLISH GALES. &nbsp; RESCUED BY ROCKET. &nbsp; —♦— NUMEROUS LIVES SAVED. A thrilling story is told of the wreck of the &nbsp; large steamer Silvania, of Hartlepool, at Skin- &nbsp; ningrove, which is 16 miles north of Whitby, &nbsp; in Yorkshire. At 11 o'clock on the night of &nbsp; December 13, when seas were mountainous, she &nbsp; was seen in difficulties off Roxby. The various &nbsp; coastguard stations were apprised by telephone &nbsp; of the vessel's plight, and her course was anxi- &nbsp; ously watched right up the coast. &nbsp; The vessel made for Saltburn and was burning &nbsp; brilliant flares. Four rockets were at once sent &nbsp; up, and the lifeboat and rocket brigade crews &nbsp; were summoned in readiness to assist the steam- &nbsp; er, which was now being driven out to sea.

ANGLOPHOBES' INCONSISTENCY. &nbsp; It is interesting to observe that the same &nbsp; Germans who rise in eloquent indignation against the conduct of England in South Africa and the suppression of the Boer nationalities are approving and demanding the suppression of the nationality and language of the Poles in the province of Posen. —"Temps," Paris.

THANKS TO MR. J. B. DUKE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
THANKS TO MR. J. B. DUKE. &nbsp; &nbsp; How American competition, curiously enough, &nbsp; may beneficially affect our national exchequer &nbsp; is shown by the registration, just effected, of &nbsp; Imperial tobacco (of Great Britain and Ire- &nbsp; land), which has brought the nice little sum of &nbsp; £37,552 for stamp duty into the revenue coffers. &nbsp; In all probability this big tobacco "combine" would never have been brought about but for &nbsp; the fears of the American competition develop- &nbsp; ing into American monopoly, nor would the &nbsp; &nbsp; Chancellor have consequently been rejoiced by &nbsp; &nbsp; this welcome addition to ways and means.— &nbsp; &nbsp; "Financial News." &nbsp;

SAXON AND NORMAN RELICS. &nbsp; In the course of alterations in the nave of St. &nbsp; Mary's Church, Chatham, some beautiful old &nbsp; Norman arches in the west wall have been &nbsp; discovered.

CLERK'S CLEVER FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
CLERK'S CLEVER FRAUD. &nbsp; Some time ago a stranger left behind him at &nbsp; a Paris post-office a duly-executed passport, &nbsp; containing his name. &nbsp; The clerk appropriated the passport, and made &nbsp; out postal orders for over £1000 on Tunis, and &nbsp; advised the Tunis office to pay the amount when &nbsp; the orders were presented. He then obtained &nbsp; leave of absence, went to Tunis, and drew the &nbsp; money. He is believed to be now in London. &nbsp;
