Lockjaw Caught from horses. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

LoclijaTt Caught frum horses. Science is gradually alienating us from the animals who had been onr friends. M.Pastenr*s theories, exceedingly interesting and valuable, nevertheless created a line of cleavage between, man and dog, and now -M. Vemeuil is try ing to do the same thing bcLweec man. and-,; horse. M Vemeuil is a firm believer lft_ the microbe theory, and if you show him the, disease he will do his best to show you the microbe. Latterly he has taken up lockjaw as a subject, and what he has to say upon it will strike the unlearned with surprise certainly : perhaps also with consternation. It seemsthe disease is at once virulent and contagions, and that it comes to man almost entirely from horses. M. Vemeuil has his facts and his sta tistics to hand. Coachmen and stable-boys^ grooms and helpers these are the classes among whom the disease is most common. A bite from a horse is a very general cause, butr some thing less than a bite will give lockjaw to a (likely subject. Among...

Poker in Dakota. A GAME IN WHICH DUECES SCOOPED THE POT. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

Poker in Dakota. A GAME IK "WHICH DTJECES SCOOPED THE POT. Back in the fifties when the northern por tion of the Territory of Dakota was hardly more than a bleak waste of uncultivated lands, the town of Pembina was founded t>7 Enos Stutsman. Some readers of the Herald may remember him. He was a man as re markable for his eccentricities as he was for his physical deformities. Enos emigrated to Dakota from the huckleberry districts of Connecticut and located in the upper Red river valley, where he filled and proved up on 329 acres of Government land, which was j the ground on which Pembina now stands, j Enos was a prodigy. He had the head and body of a giant, bnt his legs were hardly more than a foot long, and he was unable to travel without the aid of two short and powerful crutches. He was a shrewd, calcu lating fellow, and soon became the recognised leader among the handful of emigrants who had taken up their residences in his neigh bourhood. As a political diplomat he has never...

No One Smoked. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

No One Smoked. A curious incident is recorded by the Times correspondent as indicative of the respect paid by the immense assemblage in the streets of Berlin to the memory of the dead Kaiser. It was an intensely cold day, and the crowd stood for hours in the piercing frost. Bat no one smoked. " One or two forgot themselves, ' but a general shout of nicht rcmehen ! made them throw down their weeds, looking peni tent and ashamed." Here is a carious in- j stance of a democratic sumptuary law i framed and enforced spontaneously against tobacco, as if its use were! disrespectful to death. It must have been a severe trial for , balf a million habitual smokers to t.deny I themselves of their favourite luxury for hours, during which they must have sorely pined for a whifE. Their fortitude, however, , did not go to the lebgth of resisting the temptation of nips of brandy to keep out the cold. Query, Why is a cigar more disre spectful to the dead than a glass of cognac ?

ORIGINAL STORY. For Lack of Gold. Br H. -B. SnmoNs. CHAI'TEE I.-MAEGEEY. It -was the bright, beautiful spring Lime. Kedolent with a "thousand scents and sounds of the coming summer, the tender green blades of grass waved pleasantly in the sofc, ?warm air: the corn fields showed isigns of a plentiful harvest, and everywhere about the fields and hedges, violets, blue-bells, and anemones raised their pretty heads. Tufts of primroses, narcissus, and cowslips were just bursting into bud, ready to glorify the earth with their fragrance and beauty. The gardens were a mass of snowdrops and crocuses, anl the fruit trees were beginning to show their white and pink blossoms, among the green leaves. Birds sang and topped gaily from bough to bough, and their heart3 were full of gladness. For behold ' the springtime has come, their young are fledged, their dart days are over and thepaat is forgotten. Cows and horses sported among the green fields; butterflies lazily skiaimed the air and rested on...

CHAPIEE II-SUNLIT DAYS. Margery was fond of wandering far afield among die dewdrops, before tae sun had oaken ail their beauty to himself. More beautiful are they than the tender -now-fLakethey flash like diamonds on their thrones. Eich tixiy drop has its blade of grass or fresh green leaf, on which it shines lender and confidingly, until it finds that the oe&uiiful thing which seems to smile at it, is the Hut uurelentless son, which will not spare it. for a moment it shines, tnen sinks beside us sister dewdrop, and is no more. But Msrgeiy did not think of this or even uotice it; she saw the sun drink them in every morning with only one thought, ' How pretty they are.' Every tune that she had come out alone, whether in the dewy morning, or busy noon die, Horace GastleDone had joined her.

A New Year Snake Yarn. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

A New Year Snake Yarn. MoseS Swartz, a farmer of Rochester, went to the bam to water the stock one Sunday night about g o' clock.

VARIETIES. A Gambler's Outfit. INGENIOUS CONTRIVANCES FOR SWINDLING AT CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

VARIETIES. A Gambler's Outfit. INGEXIOUS CONTRIVANCES FOB SWINDLING AT CAEDS. Scotland Yard possesses a 'museum,' a a memorial of Howard Vincent's rule. It consists principally of ghastly mementoes of certain notorious crimes in recent years; but the collection has juet received a most interesting addition of a different kind. Among the effects of Daniel Thomas Doherty, the American who was sentenced to penal servitude last month for shooting a companion in a dispute over a gambling debt -were found the elaborate apparatus of a professional card sharper. The articles include a bogus roll of notes, a miniature mirror the size of a six pence, to enable the player to see the value of any card he deals, and a half a dozen packs of marked cards in a handsome wooden case. The case contains a screw which presses the packs so closely together that any two cards which are slightly roughed with sandpaper will adhere to one another. Bat the gem of the collection is a piece of mechanism designe...

The Fashionable color. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

The Fashionable color. -It is fortunate'for fashionable women that bulls do not run loose in the streets of New York, because a dominant color in spring promenade costumes would be sure to cause trouble. The men have too long enjoyed an exclusive privilege in painting the town red and now the women propose to take a hand at it. But not in the same way-heaven forbid! They will carry the paint outside instead of inside. In other words the announcement comes from Paris that fashion and femininity havebrought scarlet to the front as the colour of the season, and the boulevards have already assumed a lurid aspect which exceeds anything since the dajs of the Commune. There are three or four shades of it, but all is scarlet in these degenerate days, when only a mental contortionist can follow the gyrations of color and tone as developed in female apparel. The dressmakers and the milliners here are getting their importations through the Custom-house with all possible speed and their hands w...

SKETCHES The Newness of "Our Old Nobility." [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

8KETOHE8 » The Newness of "Oar Old JfoMlity" BY AN ABOLITIONIST. The actual number ot peers now ttanaa ax 555, bat as there are fifteen minors the voting power of the House of Iiords is 540. On comparing this figure with the Peer's division lists, it is impossible not to be struck with the large number who show by their absence I their contempt for the obsolete privileges they at present enjoy. But their power of mischief is only dormant. In an historical division not ' long ago, scores of individuals, equally strangers to the attendants .and to the very building, sprang up as if from the stones of a Deucalion, represented for the. nonce by the Marquis of Salisbury, to thwart the popular will and vote the franchise Bill oat 01 the House. When it is remembered that change ©f the Ministry sees a new creation, it is obvious that the present Honse of Peers is of very modem origin. Bat when the actual rate of progression comes to be examined the figures , are positively startling, as sho...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Hypnotism. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 25 May 1888

POPULAR SCJENGE. Hypnotism. THE scientific study of hypnotism was first begun by Charcot, the chief of the great Salpetriere Hospital in Paris. In connection with his pupils he has performed hundreds of experiments, and has been able to deduce certain laws from the results. He found that all subjects are not susceptible, hut he was generally able to produce the hypnotic «ondi tioH in two ways. The following is a dear explanation of the two methods-one when the excitement is strong and abrupt, the other when it is faint and long-continued : "Theformer mode of excitation, as em ployed by Charcot and his pupils, consists usually in making vivid impression on the sight, as, for example the introduction of a solar lamp into a dark room, fixing the eyes of the sun, the incandescence of a strip of magnesium, the electric light, etc. The same effect may be produced on a naturally hys terical subject by an intense noise, like that of a Chinese gong, by a whistle, or by the vibration of a ton...
