CORRESPONDENCE. [WHILE we shall be glad to publish letters, it must be understood that it does not follow we endorse the opinions of our correspondents.] To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
CORRESPOND ENGE. [WHILE we shall be glad to publish letters, it must ? be understood that it does not follow we en- dorse the opinions of our correspondents.] To the Editor. SIR,-Mr. Varney Parkes fired his first shot in the forthcoming election from Cloke's balcony on Saturday night, but the effect of his utterances, instead of silencing the Federalists, will spur théin on to new vigilance and energy. His speech was that of a man trembling with fear, but pos- sessing subliTne confidence in his ability to hood- wink the electors of Liverpool. It was the ora- tion of a man labouring against the will of the people. The man who a few weeks ago- stumped the electorate preaching against Federation is now an ardent Federalist. He knows the popular feeling in New South. Wales preponderates in favor of Federation and he would fain float with the tide. Mr. Parkes now proposes to put aside the most remarkable Democratic vote ever polled in Australia and to flout not only the Convention, but t...
SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
SOCIAL. ON Tuesday evening a well-organised " sur- prise" party, consisting of about thirty persons, paid Mr. W. F. Eedy (the district representative of the Citizens' Life Assur- ance Company), a visit at his residence, " Havalah," Olive-street, Liverpool. On arrival the party (who were laden with the usual necessities), were warmly welcomed by Mr. and Mrs. Eedy, and no time was lost in placing the premises in order for the pro- jected festivities. When everything was in readiness dancing commenced and, inter- spersed with songs, Was kept up till a late hour, the company disoussing the good things provided prior to dispersing. Mr. Penny . supplied excellent music and a most enjoy- able time was spent.

They will hold another service at the same place to:morrow (Sunday) afternoon, commencing at 3 o'clock. THE Liverpool Band played several selec- tions on Moore Park on Sunday afternoon last. The music was much appreciated by a large gathering of the townspeople. ONE very common cause of the watch gain- ing or losing, is the disposition that is made of it at night.

The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
?\)t interpol Mnúk PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 16, 1898. THOUGHTFUL and patriotic citizens will deeply regret if the present Federal oppor- tunity fails to result in , an intellectual awakening and the consequent return to Parliament of a high percentage pf represen- tatives worthy of the country and equal to the great trust reposed upon them. There, have not been wanting those who have actually paraded the virtues of the past Par- liament and sung its praises. Their con- ception of political capacity and legislative talent does not count for much. As a matter of fact, the late Parliament had little learn- ing and less patriotism. Its legislative achievements, when not mischievous or value- less, were notoriously defective. The stamp of statesmanship is on none of its work. No considerable individual reputation was made .during the past three years, while the majority of members proved their utter in- capacity for Parliamentary business, lt. is certainly a refle...
IT MAKES SUCH A DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
IT MAKES SUCH A DIFFERENCE. A LION Grove giri found a package of love letters that had been written to ber mother by her father before they were married. The girl saw that she could have a little sport and read them to her mother, substi- tuting her own nama for that of her mother and a fine young man for that of her father. The mother jumped up and down in her chair., shifted her feet, seemed terribly dis« gusted, andforbade her daughter having any thing to do with a youug man who would write such sickening and nonsensical stuff to a girl. I VVheu the young lady handed th« letters to her mother to read, the house became so still that one could hear the grass growing in the back yard.

indigestion and Liver Trouble. Doubled up with Pain. Straightened up with CLEMENTS TONIC. Mr. James Smith, Bootmaker, High-street, Liverpool, writes on October 20th, 1897:-*'For seveu years I waa a sufferer from indigestion and liver troubles. I used to suffer from paine in the «beat and at the pit of the stomach, also violent palpitation and dizziness in the head, for days together. I had a stiffness iu the neck, in fact I waa in a very bad state, being completely run down. I tried many advertised remedies, but received no benefit. Then I gave Clements Tonio a trial, «nd, from the first, I felt an improve-1 ment. I continued with it, and after a seven weeks' course I felt splendid. in- stead of being doubled up with pain and Bullering, and feeling life a man of eighty years of age, I became straight and healthy; and although I am fifty years of age, I feel like twenty, and now enjoy my life beoause I have good health. - Yours Truly, JAMES SMITH, High St., Liverpool, N.S.W.

CHAPTER III. THE HISTORY OF A FEUD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
CHAPTER III. THE HISTORY OF A FEUD. Places, like persons, have characters to keep or to lose. From tho time beyond wbioh fireside tradition fades into the less authentic record of legendary tales, McNabb's Cove had shared with its scanty population the evil report of a had neigh- borhood. Topographically, it is a mere gash in the side of Murphy Mountain, with a few acres of arable land in the oentre shut, in on three sides by steep wooded .hills, whose siunmits are the cliffs of the moun- tain. Practically inaccessible on three sides, entrance by the fourth in soar col y less diffi- cult. A narrow wagon-road winds up the sharp ascent which measures the height of the covo above tho level elf Harmony Valley ; and besides this there are no meánB of ingress or egress for vehicles, and none for pedestrians save suo h as aro afforded by two or three rooky trails up the sides of the mountain. The isolation of MoNabb'a Cove had much to do with its unsavory reputation. For many years the Byn...
LADIES' COLUMN. BITS OF FEMININE WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
? ' LAIUS1' OûluïïMlf. . ? BITS OF FEMININE WISDOM. i When a woman ia winked she is a hundred times more wicked than the least good .man; but when she is good she is adorably good. . The men who contradict most are those who are least able to endure contradiction. Two things disgust men with home pouti.ig und tears. Men are never as kind nor as wioked as our s>inpathy or our anger makes us, judge them. The loss of a long illusion is the mont eruel and the most profound of wounds. Nothing marks a sentiment like absence. The one who forgets was not a real friend. Absence doubles friendship instead of weak- ening it. Send into oironlation together an absurd- ity, an inept tale, a false report and a truth, the chance is that the truth will be the last to arrive. It is an incontestable faot that women generally mistrust one another. ' While men find oharm in their union, women as soon as they assemble are bored. Nothing hardens the heart and consoienoe like the acquisition of fortuno ...
ORIENTAL RUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
ORIENTAL RUGS. In buying an Oriental rug one oan dis- criminate between the imitation and genuine, not by the color or pattern, whioh may be copied, but by a careful examination to see if each stitch is knotted. If the stitch is knotted and it is impossible to pull it out, the rug is genuine Turkish, whether the warp is cotton or wool, but if one oan pull the stitch out it is imitation, no matter bow closely colour and pattern follow the original. The manner of testing the quality of the rug is as follows : ' A live coal is dropped on the rug and allowed to burn a little. When it is removed a yellowish mark will be left. If this can be brushed off with the fingers, leaving the original colours unaltered, it is a eure proof of the genuineness of tho rug. It is necessary, however, for one to b9 a con- noisseur in rags in order to be able to dis- criminate between the qualities of rugs of various countries and to understand the age j of the rug from the intensity of the lustre. \ Some ...
EVEN IN THESE DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
EVENT IN THESE DAYS. It HeeoiB scarcely oredible that any part of England to-day should be a week behind the times- Yet ouch ia the case in Borne nf the Fen villages of South Lincolnshire. Several hauileta have no post offices, and letters have to be sent for, sometimes, a distance of four miles. By reason of inadequate postal service, a daily paper is a thing undreamt of, and the . more enlightened Fenland-ers invest in a penny weekly, to as to koop up with the doings of the world. The writer, who was for some years a schoolmaster in one of the most lonely parts of the Fons, knew old men and women who had never seen a railway train, and pro- bably would die without seeing one. In winter time, owing to the indescribable state of the country roads, where cart wheels sink to the hub in deep ruts, a solitary visit to the market town is a thing to be talked "T

AT IiAST. He had worn a coloured blazer on the Nile, He had pported spats-in Pernia just for style, With a neoktie quite too utter, in the streets of old Calcutta He had stirred up quite a flutter for a wile. The maids of Java thronged before his door Attracted by the trousers that he wore, And his vest, a bosom-venter, Bhook Formosa to its centre, And they hailed him as a mentor by the score. On his own. ground,' as a masher in the street, He outdid a Turkish pasha, &lt;vho did treat ; He gave Shanghai the jumps, and their , cheeks stuck ont like humps At the patent-leather pumps upon his feet. But he oalled upon a jfayfair girl one night, With a neoktie ready-made, which'wasn't right ; And she looked at him, that maid did, and he faded, and he faded, 1 And he faded, and he faded out ot sight. ! -T BOSH.

UNUSED ROOMS IN A PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
I TTNUSED ROOMS IN A PALACE. In the old-fashioned brick palace at Ken« sington, a little suite of rooms is oarefully guarded from the public gaze, swept and garnished aud tended as though the occu- pants of long ago were hourly expected to return. The early years of England's aged ¡Sovereign were passed iu these Bimple rooms, and by her orders they have been kept unchanged, the furniture and decorations remaining to-day as when she lived inside those walls. In one oorner is assembled a collection of dolls of all sizes, dressed in the quaint finery of 1825. A set of miniature cooking utensils and a rocking-horse stand near by. A child's sorap book and colour boxes lie on the tables. In one sunny eh amber stands the little white draped bed where the heiress to the greatest crown on earth dreamed her childish dreams, and from which she was hastily aroused one Jane morning to be told that she was, a Queen. So homelike and livable an air pervades the place that one almost expects to see ...
TRAVELLER. A FRENCH PENAL SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
-? A £ BENCH PENAL SHIP. The French transport; ship Oaledqnie is an ' objeot of muoh curiosity. This grim sea Ïrison annually conveys ahont 2000 eouls rom the land of the living-the gay French republio-to an enduring death on the Safety islands. The Caledon ie is an iron ship of 4000 tons. For tho last ten years, says the Atlanta Journal, it has been in the employ of the ' Frenoh Government transporting criminals from France and Algeria to thc penal colonies on the Safety islands, thirty miles', off the coast of Frenoh Guiana. Four steel oagos, eaoh with a oapaoity of 150, are ready for the male prisoners as they oome aboard, while u much smaller one, oapab'e of holding only thirty-one persons, is suffloient for the female eonviota. This latter cage is in the aft of the ship, and is widely separated from tho others. The women are treated with a great deal more consideration than the men. They have regular berths and are given better faro. The mon sleep in canvas hammooks and are ' p...
HINTS TO BEEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
HINTS TO BEEKEEPERS. Adjusting boards should he used in hives- ' of all weak stooks. Colonies having defective queens are ,! always the foundation of trouble. Colonies selected for breeding should oon tain a good supply of drone oomb. Little wooden troughs holding about a . pint of syrup are good for breeding bees. . The supply ot drones depends entirely ott the amount of drone comb furnished. Colonies selected for breeders should be pushed by early feeding to their utmost limit. Do not feed in the morning, as it tends to oause robbing and to make the bees restless. ' It is just aa necessary to seleot for the .. production of drones as for tho production of '. queens. \ Pollen is always stored in or near the : brood nest, and here is the plaoe where the -' bees will duster.

THE CORRECT DRESS SKIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
THE CORREO P DRESS SKIRT. The greateat ambition of the dressy woman this season is to be slender, says lWomi n's Companion,' so that ali drosB skirts are ruted with the greatest oaro and are held olose to the figure until the knees are reaohed, when they may flare o r hang easy, as oue may wish. In Paris women have discarded taffeta silk as a lining to dress skirts and are using either surah silk or old* fashioned de- laine instead, so as to give the soft, clinging effeot. M oreo vor, they have given up their pet petticoat ot rustling taffeta and now wear surah or any silk without rustle or stiffness. In London the long walkin ar skirt is the eorreot thing, touohing the ground all around with a decided train in the baok; These skirts are made quite narrow, and are really intended for dressy promenade wear. If the material is wide they are out oiroular, but if narrow are made gored, and are universally made severely plaiu at the bottom. There are many variations of the old bell skirt...
THE PERFECT POMPADOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
THE PERFECT POMPADOUR. It is wrong to attempt to roll your front hair over a 'ral' for wear with a hat, when you are to be safe under a veil and the pom padour oannot slip. The only satisfactory pompadour is the result of combing down over the face looks long enough to oome at least as low as the ohm. Brush thoroughly. Get the hair fluffy by whipping it out with the brush. When it is so turn it baok with the comb. Lot the roll stand as thigh as is becoming, then tuok it under in the ends. They serve to support the roll, and the edge of the hair, where it turns under, may be oaught hy the side oomb and held per- fectly. This turning under should take place far enough back to oonoeal the parting. Suoh a pompadour will never slip.
LACE FOR SUMMER TOILETS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 16 July 1898
LA.OE FOR SUMMER TOILETS. Laoo in soma form or other will bo used j upon nearly all dressy summer toilets. If the silk gown, for instance, ia triramad with rows of narrow velvet ribbiu, there will bo a guimpe or yoke of fancv lace, aud if tho bodice is morely a plain open jaolcot, beneath will be worn a blouse of net or of plain silk, trimmed with lace points or insertions. Tho newest, most favoured and effective method in employing lace as au accessory is in the use of detached sprigs of guipure or other design of lace, applying tho apocial pi9cess wherever the presence of lace is suitable and improving. There ia hardly any position on the bodice whore the lace is considered out of place. Guipure is perhaps tho best suited of all laces for decorating dressy day gowns. These detached sprays, more or lois elaborate in pattern, work wondera in competent hands, but excess of trimming of this de- scription must be avoided or the entire dainty effect will be spoiled.
