MAX O'RELL V. SARAH GRAND. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

MAX O'RELL V. SARAH GRAND. Madame Sarah Grand's views on "Mere Man'' are well known in England. Recently she has been lecturing on the subject in the United States. Max O'Rell has replied to her, "with a few remarks on "Mere Woman." Here are a few gems from both. MAX O'RELL.   The most religious   woman will postpone   an interview with her   Maker for an appoint-   ment with her dress-   maker.   The woman who is   constantly blushing   must be terribly well   informed.   The American man is   practically the slave of   woman.   Education is very   often to women what wealth is to men. It does not take a woman long   to become a parvenu in the matter of educa- tion. Women should have two great aims in life— trying to be beautiful and succeeding in be- ing pleasant. In England w...

A NOVEL COLLECTING-BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

A NOVEL COLLECTING-BOX.   This illustration pour-   trays a collecting-box,   an undoubted novelty,   but one which has prov-   ed singularly useful to   the hospital which first   brought it before the   public.   It can be confidently   recommended to the host   of philanthropic men and   women throughout Aus-   tralia who devote much   of their time to the work   of alleviating sickness   and suffering, and who   are not afraid to face the   hard work of getting con-   tributions to the most   deserving institutions in   the world—the hospitals.   If the Hospital Satur-   day and Hospital Sunday   Committees could alter   the design of their per-  ...

Military Rafts and Bridges. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Military Rafts and Bridges. —♦— The devices proposed by inventors for sus- taining objects upon water are very numerous. The system invented by Commander Cluchagne, of the French army, differs somewhat from all its predecessors, and is of a nature to be utilised in the army. In principle, the apparatus is of remarkable simplicity. It consists of cylindrical metal buoys 12in. in length and 6in. in diameter. If two of these cylinders be attached to a gymnasium belt we shall have a first-class swimming apparatus. A man can put on such a belt, and fasten it around his body in 15 seconds. Commander Cluchagne has given his appa- ratus a wider range, and applied it to the cross- CARRYING THE BRIDGE. ing of rivers. To effect this he submits the float to a slight modification that consists in convert- ing it into a buoy of which the two parts can be connected hermetically. Under such circum- stances the float renders manifold services. Owing to its form it may be placed upon the soldier's kn...

PROVERBS IMPROVED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

PROVERBS IMPROVED. BY "JIMMY." Too many drills bore the soldier. Discretion thinks it had better part with valor. Procrastination is the relief of time. When "money makes the man" it usually does it badly. Least thread soonest ended. It's gold, gold, gold, which makes the world go round; There is positive proof If it wasn't for "oof" How square we'd be otherwise found. Don't lock the stable when your horse is lost, at least not while there's a "stray" chance of   another.

FIFE WILL ROMANCE. ROMANTIC DISCOVERY OF 1869 TALES ON 1899 PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

FIFE WILL ROMANCE. ROMANTIC DISCOVERY OF 1869 TALES ON 1899 PAPER. In last week's "World's News" a paragraph was given about the wonderful appearance of a will to the property of a Scottish millionaire. The fuller story runs as follows: In February last the owner of the Lathrisk Estates in Fifeshire, Mr. George Johnston, died. Mr. Johnston for over 30 years had lived the life of a recluse, and had only at rare intervals been seen by his lawyers, while his mansion was attended by a deaf man and his wife. He never came out in daylight, and his midnight wanderings were subjects of mystery. An extraordinary keenness in business, how- ever, was exhibited by his investments, which   have since been valued at £850,000. As no will LIEUT. MAKGILL-CRICHTON-MAITLAND could be found, the heritage, which was entailed, passed into the possession of Lieutenant Mak- gill-Crichton-Maitland. A large number of rela- tives claimed on the movables, but a settlement was arrived at with these ...

A STRANGE "DRINK" THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

A STRANGE "DRINK" THEORY,   Quite a stir has been caused in the temper-   ance camp in Great Britain by the promulgation   of a new and startling theory on the subject of   the connection between heredity and drink, by   Mr. Archdall Reid.   Why is it (asks Mr. Reid) that the Jews are   such a temperate race? One never sees a Jew   drunk. It is because (he replies to his own   question) the Jewish race has exhausted the   drink craving in past generations. Just as sav-   ages are immune from malaria owing to their   ancestors having borne the brunt of the disease   in the remote past, causing the race to become   hardened against it, so nations like the Jews,   who discovered all about alcohol as an adjunct   to civilisation thousands of years ago, find   themselves...

CARRYING GOLD AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

CARRYING GOLD AT SEA.   —♦—   The specie locker of an ocean steamer is a carefully-constructed vault, and is located in the stern immediately over the screw. It has the shape of a half oval, following the contour of the side of the vessel, and is generally about six feet in its extreme from top to bottom. Some vaults are fifteen to twenty feet in length, fore and aft. The interior is reached by a door or hatchway from the top, simply large enough to give convenient access. The door is of steel, and has a combination lock, which is known only to the purser. Over this hatch is also fas- tened three bars of steel two and a half inches thick, which swing at one end on hinges, and are locked and also bolted at the other. The locker, it will be seen, is in the most suitable position in the ship, away from the crew, and cannot be tampered with, as on three sides of it is the sea. The purser receives the gold, carefully examines the seals, then checks off the weigh...

FIRING AT BALLOONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

  FIRING AT BALLOONS.     Experiments with artillery fire directed against   a captive balloon have been recently carried out in Germany. The balloon was allowed to ascend to a height of 984ft., and fire was opened upon it at a range of 5000 yards. Sixty rounds were to have been fired, but at the 17th the balloon was struck, the envelope was torn, and the gas ignited, the car falling to the ground. We may point out, however, that if the artillery knew the height of the balloon and their distance from its rising point the experiment was worthless.

THE LAY OF THE LAST MINSTREL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

THE LAY OF THE LAST   MINSTREL.       (J. J. Montague in Portland "Oregonian.")   An aged negro minstrel once lay dying in Al-   giers,   Where he'd lived in lonely exile for full many   weary years.   He had sprung his faded outfit of conundrums   o'er and o'er,   Till his fierce and outraged countrymen could stand from him no more.   To the natives gathered round him as Death   grappled with him there   He narrated this sad story with what breath   he had to spare:   I was born in old Kentucky, where the meadow   breezes blew,   (There's a gag that is a corker, but, of course, it's lost on you.) I could handle lines from childhood, so they put me on the stage,   (That, perhaps, is rather youthful, but a   stunner for its age....

ON BEHALF OF COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

ON BEHALF OF COFFEE. —♦— It is so much the fashion of the medical fra- ternity to condemn certain of our luxuries, that it was refreshing to learn from an eminent mem- ber of the faculty that he did not disapprove of coffee after dinner. "It is quite true," he said, "that tea and coffee retard the digestion, but this in many cases is an advantage, as it is not well that food should be digested too rapidly, especially in these days when the skill of cooks and food specialists puts much of our diet before us in a condition that affords little exercise for the digestive powers. "The after-dinner coffee, then, tends to slow down the process of digestion, and makes nutri- tion what it ought to be—a slow and gradual operation. "All the same, coffee, as well as tea, should be   shunned by those whose digestions are weak."

THE PROGRESS OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

THE PROGRESS OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING. "Engineering" says that the electrical   schemes to be considered in the present session of   Parliament are very numerous. It is particu-   larly noteworthy that the number of local au-   thorities applying for power to supply elec-   tricity shows a greater increase than is the case   with private promoters.   Comparatively small urban districts display   considerable courage in this respect; and, ob- viously, their only hope of financial success is in the prosecution of large "bulk" schemes, which will obviate for them the risk of having a large generating station to supply a slowly growing clientele, and at best a variable load. Of such large "bulk" schemes, quite a number   are promoted this year. The county of Kent is included in one, with prospective generating stations at Strood, on the River Medway; at Sturry, in the rural d...

NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S THRONE ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S THRONE ROOM. —♦—   The expedition investigating the site of ancient Babylon has discovered the throne room of the great King Nebuchadnezzar, an enormous place about 60ft. broad and 170ft. long, the entrance being immediately opposite the alcove in which the throne stood. On each side of the throne on the north side of the hall are richly colored architectural adornments. The expedition has also discovered a large number of inscribed bricks. These have been translated and are found to be letters, psalms, contracts, and dic- tionaries of the utmost importance for the study of the Old Testament. Two other expeditions are now being planned, one to settle the geo- graphical position of the realm of the Queen of Sheba, the other to clear up the mystery attached to the name of Prester John.

King Edward's New Motor Car. A LUXURIOUS VEHICLE. TO HOLD SIX PASSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

King Edward's New Motor Car. A LUXURIOUS VEHICLE. —♦—       TO HOLD SIX PASSENGERS. In the King motoring possesses one of its   keenest supporters.   Since the days of the English-built Daimler,   which was his Majesty's initial experiment in   motor ownership, quite a number of cars have   passed through the gates of Sandringham for   his use, but his interest in this form of locomo- tion appears unabated. The majority of his cars, however, have been   Coventry Daimlers, in the selection of which   his Majesty has set the very necessary example   of encouraging the home industry. The last car   supplied him was a great roomy, comfortable   vehicle, principally designed for use at shooting   parties and similar functions, and known as the   beaters' car. This, however, is entire...

MR. RALPH HALL CAINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

MB. RALPH HALL CAINE. Mr Ralph Hall Caine, who is now editing Dickens' old paper, "Household Words," is not only the son of Mr. Hall Caine, the eminent novelist, but ranks, as stated in "The World's News" of last week, as the youngest editor in London. To be accurate, his age is 17 and a half years, and hitherto he has little or no experi- ence of journalistic work, but his father resolved to test him by purchasing the paper above men- tioned, and placing it in his hands. Thus, almost di- rectly from school, he has assumed the professional frock coat, and an editor's responsibility. Though his face still retains its boyish look, Mr. Ralph Hall Caine possesses   considerable grit, and he is laying ambitious   plans for the development of his enterprise.     Naturally his father Is watching the under-     taking with much interest, and has already been     commissioned by the son fo...

OUR SHIPPING SUPREMACY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

OUR SHIPPING SUPREMACY.   —♦—     Referring to foreign shipping competition in   a speech to the Liverpool Shipbrokers' Society   recently, Mr. Gerald Balfour, M.P., said that   during 1900 vessels of the gross tonnage of   600,000 were transferred from the British register   to foreign owners; against this, however, over   1,200,000 tons were added to the British register.   The significance of this movement lay in the fact that whereas the additions consisted almost entirely of new vessels constructed in the United Kingdom, the transfers consisted of old ships.   While recognising that the loss of our mercan- tile marine would mean the destruction of the   British Empire, and while admitting every cause   for vigilance in this respect, he saw no ground   for alarm. The efforts which foreign nations &am...
