THEATRICAL. THEATRE ROYAL. HARBY RICKARDS' VAUDEVILLE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
HARRY RICKARD'S VAUDEVILLE &nbsp; COMPANY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Harry Rickards' Vaudeville Company have held the boards at the Theatre Royal, and notwithstanding the inclement weather and the guilessness of the attraction of the Yankee Queen's Hall entertainer, they have been favored with good houses. The pro- gramme is an extremely varied one, and the different items are well chosen. Perhaps most attractive of all is the marvellous ex- hibitions of club-swinging and juggling given by Messrs. Deronda and Breen. Their performance is simply a revelation, and how they miss getting their heads knocked off is a mystery. The hand balancing of Mr. Fred. Zobedie is also a great performance, and the danger to himself of the feats he performs on his hands holds the audience spell-bound. Ventriloquial acts are generally much hack- neyed, but Mr. J. W. Winton does not tire his audience, as he introduces a lot of new business. Mdlle. Lotty's act is ...
OREMORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
CREMORNE. The inclemency of the weather during the week did not damp the ardor of the actors nor the enthusiasm of the audience at the Cremorne Theatre. "The Lancashire Lass" &nbsp; has had a good run, and is to be continued to-morrow and Tuesday nights. The great item on the bill for Wednesday next is a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Grand complimentary benefit to Mr. George A. Jones." We hope the Cremorne will be &nbsp; crowded to the doors on that occasion, for if anyone deserves well of the theatre-going public, both as a popular actor and manager, it is Mr. Jones. It is chiefly to his enter- prise, ability, and courage that we owe the privilege of having a theatre, or gardens, constantly patronised by amusement seekers. &nbsp; This (Sunday) evening the company perform &nbsp; in Mason's Hall, North Fremantle, when patrons are promised a grand rational Sun- day evening's amusement with "Current Cash." &nbsp; &nbsp;
PERTE ORCHESTRAL SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
The first concert of the Perth Orchestral Society this season is announced to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday next in the Town Hall. The programme announced is an excellent one, and the music-loving &nbsp; public may expect a treat. Mr. R. D'Arcy Irvine will act as conductor and Miss &nbsp; Hansen-Knarboi will have charge of the first violin. To-morrow the box plan will &nbsp; be open at Nicholson's at 10 o'clock, and on Tuesday and Wednesday seats can be re- served by the general public at the same &nbsp; place. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
V.R.C. GRAND NATIONAL STEEPLECHASE. YATICINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
BY THE CAULFIELDITE. &nbsp; &nbsp; The V.R.C. Grand National Meeting, be- gun yesterday, will be continued on Wed- nesday, when the Maiden Steeplechase will be decided, and concluded on Saturday, when the Grand National Steeplechase will be the piece de resistance. As the final acceptances for this race are not due until Thursday next it is at present difficult to give a fore- case, especially as the Maiden may bring to the fore soem fresh little-known candidates. &nbsp; The New Zealander, The Guard, heads the &nbsp; list with 12.7, but he has hardly been over long enough. The Mill Park stable is Strongly Represented with Error, 12.5, Kaimate, 12.0, and the hitherto disappointing Emma. Personally I incline tot he opinion that Kaimate will prove the best of the trio. Brokerage is the Sydney crack, and donkey-licked Bay Eagle at a disadvantage of 38lb. last Easter. The son of The Broker will take an immensity of beating. Vigil can carry weight and stay ...
CREATURES THAT HUNT AND ARE HUNTED. The Sporting Instinct in the Animal World. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
CREATURES THAT HUNT AND ARE HUNTED. &nbsp; The Sporting Instinct in the Animal World. BY T. C. BRIDGES. &nbsp; ALONG bottle-shaped body, a small head, jaws like animated shears, and an appetite which nothing &nbsp; ever satisfies—that is the ant lion, a creature whose extraordinary method of trapping its prey beats the efforts of the most careful and painstaking human sportsman. The ant lion's pitsfall is a common object in England, and well worth the trouble of examining to any- one interested in the art of trapping. You find it in loose, sandy soil, a &nbsp; place generally where the grass is fairly thick all round, so that unsuspecting &nbsp; insects hurrying about their business &nbsp; may stumble unknowingly into it. &nbsp; Watch the ant lion at work. Making pivot of its front feet it uses its &nbsp; &nbsp; whole body as a shovel, and spins &nbsp; rapidly round. Soon an encircling ridge is thrown up...
THE WANDERING ACE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
THE WANDERING ACE. &nbsp; Place four aces on the table, as shown in the upper figure ; shove them &nbsp; &nbsp; together, and mix them with the rest of the cards. Then give the cards to somebody to hold. Have him look for the four aces, and to the astonishment of everybody, one ace will be missing and found in the pocket of the per- former. The trick is done in the following way : You don't place four aces on the table, but only three ; the fourth one is the nine of diamonds, covered right and left by two other aces so that only the spot in the middle is visible, as shown in the figure. Everybody will take it to be the ace of diamonds, which you have taken out of the pack before and placed in your pocket.
ROLLING EGG-SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
ROLLING EGG-SHELL. Draw in the centre of a plate the picture of the sun, and wet the rim of the plate with a little water. Place a piece of egg-shell on the rim of the plate, and, tipping the plate slightly, the egg-sbell will roll round with a double motion. It will turn round itself and move forward on the rim of the plate, as the earth revolves. King Edward's Autograph.
Our Sunday Serial THE MALLISON MYSTERY. BOOK THE SECOND. AN ENGLISH DRAMA. [COPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER I. A HOUSE PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
Our Sunday Serial THE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MALLISON MYSTERY. BY T. W. HANSHEW. BOOK THE SECOND. AN ENGLISH DRAMA. [COPYRIGHT.] CHAPTER I. A HOUSE PARTY. "But, Hilda, my darling, this is very unreasonable of you, and &nbsp; I cannot see what possible mo- tive you can have for disliking her &nbsp; ladyship. It is not like you to be unjust, my dear, and to MY thinking, Lady Una Charlock is a very charm- ing woman." "And to mine, grandpapa, she is the most odious creature in England," responded Miss Mallison serenely, as &nbsp; &nbsp; she bent over Lord Beltran's chair and dropped a kiss on the bald spot show- &nbsp; ing through his think white hair. "I know that in the eyes of you men it is rank treason to suggest even the ghost of a flaw in her, but to me she seems &nbsp; the essence of all that is unwhole- somely sweet and sugary; and if you &nbsp; were to ask me what she most suggests to M...
CHAPTER II. LADY UNA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
CHAPTER II. LADY UNA. &nbsp; A pretty petite brunette of three- and-twenty, with hair of darkest brown, &nbsp; flashing hazel eyes, a little squirrel- like mouth filled with enchantingly perfect teeth, a smile like a baby's, a figure as nearly perfect as Monsieur Worth knew how to make it, and the subtle, indescribable charm of a subtly charming woman—that is a crude de- scription of her ladyship as she came fluttering down the room in her own blithe, bird-like way, and with the dainty flitting movement peculiar to her. "Am I de trop?" she inquired archly, &nbsp; pausing between Lord Beltran and his granddaughter, and turning her bright dark eyes upon the former. "Have I interrupted that most sacred of things, a domestic conference? If so, speak, O silent oracle, and I will dis- creetly vanish." "What ! and rob us of the sunlight while it is yet day"?" returned Lord Beltran gallantly. "We have no con- ference, Hilda and I, in which the Lady Una Charlock may n...
A ROYAL MARRIAGE. MRS. FITZHERBERT AND GEORGE THE FOURTH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
MRS. FITZHERBERT AND GEORGE THE FOURTH. Although but twenty-eight years of age, the lady had been twice a wido. &nbsp; She was bom in July, 1756, and was the youngest daughter of Walter Smyth, Esq., of Brambridge, in Hamp- shire, who was the second son of Sir John Smythe, Bart. of Eshe Hall, Co. Curham, and Acton Burnell Park, in Shropshire. Of her earliest days next to nothing is known. Amongst &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the most ardent of her admirers was George, Prince of Wales, then a hand- some and fascinating, buy already Dissipated Young Man of twenty-two, six years the lady's junior. For some time Mrs. Fitz- herhert seems to have successfully re- pelled the prince's advances ; but, says her relative, Lord Stourton, she was &nbsp; &nbsp; at length subjected to a species of attack so unprecedented and alarming that her resolution was shaken, and she was induced to take the first step &nbsp; which ultimately led to that union &a...
KING'S LETTER BAG. THE POSTMAN'S DAILY DELIVERY AT THE PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
KING'S LETTER-BAG THE POSTMAN'S DAILY DELIVERY AT THE PALACE. Though the King's daily move- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ments are fully chronicled in the news- &nbsp; papers and the "Court Circular," there are many things His Majesty does of which the public have but little know- ledge. "State business," upon which &nbsp; the King is employed every morning, Overs a multitnje of urgent matters, &nbsp; from the writing of an autograph letter to a neighboring sovereign to the selection of a Coronation design; and there are, of course, numbers of official despatches which require the royal signature. It is not generally known, however, that His Majesty preserves a careful supervision over the answers which are sent to the hundreds of correspondents daily &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Writing to tho King. On an average the King's daily letter- bag contains 600 letters and about half as many newspapers, books, circulars, etc. Needles...
STRANGE MYSTERIES OF WEDDED LIFE. WOMEN WHO HAVE POSED AS HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
WOMEN WHO HAVE POSED AS HUSBANDS. Within a year six women have been &nbsp; &nbsp; discovered in America alone who have successfully masqueraded as men ; have &nbsp; gone through a legal form of marriage, &nbsp; and even posed as the fathers of &nbsp; &nbsp; families. Upwards of a score of similar cases have come to public attention re- cently in different parts of the world. &nbsp; There have been 43 instances of women posing as husbands within the last ten &nbsp; years. One medical authority claims &nbsp; that one woman in every 3,000 is a victim to this peculiar mania. Two new instances have been added re- cently to the amazing list of women who have lived and died disguised as men. In both cases the women had &nbsp; been "married," and had reared and &nbsp; educated children. &nbsp; A Unique Record. &nbsp; "Mr. William Howard," really Alice C. Howard of Canuundaigua, New York, ...
ALIVE IN A COFFIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
ALIVE IN A COFFIN. -.-. The case mentioned at a London in- quest the other day of a man who awoke in his coffin as it was being &nbsp; nailed down is happily rare, but it has its parallels. The poor man eventually took his own life, and his experience was surely enough to drive the sanest man mad. But there have been men who have undergone such experiences of their own free will. The people of Butte City, Montana, are still excited over the supposed death of a well-known architect, whose suicide "created" a painful sensation five years ago. The architect, who had been in the public service, was accused of accepting bribes from contractors, and on the &nbsp; eve of his trial the report of his suicide startled the town. His body was &nbsp; &nbsp; placed in a coffin, and a few days later &nbsp; the widow left for Germany, taking with her to New York the coffin con- taining the body of her husband, and £1,200 from the insurance company. &n...
PARIS SAFE MYSTERY A GIGANTIC SWINDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
PARIS SAFE MYSTERY A GIGANTIC SWINDLE. &nbsp; The most gigantic and monstrous swindle of modern times has just been revealed, when the safe in Madame Humbert's house in Paris, and which was supposed to contain the mysterious &nbsp; &nbsp; millions, was broken open by a lock- smith in the presence of the authori- ties and found to contain—a trousers &nbsp; button, a brass coin, sheets of white &nbsp; paper, and an empty jewel case. For 20 years this remarkable woman, Humbert, has obtained, on the strength of the signatures of phantom people, fabulous sums of money from people holding tbe highest social positions in the land. She has hoodwinked dur- ing the whole of the time almost every judge in the law courts and made her tools, voluntary or involun- tary, dupes, swindlers, simpletons, ad- venturers, personages of high impor- &nbsp; tance or of none. The colossal stopidify displayed in &nbsp; this affair is amazing. The "Daily ...
THE SECRET OF ETERNAL LIFE. A PROFESSOR'S DECLARATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 July 1902
THE SECRET OF ETERNAL LIFE. A PROFESSOR'S DECLARATION. &nbsp; Are we on the verge of learning how to live for ever? Professor Jacques Loeb, of Chicago, thinks we are. He has been conducting experiments which are to unravel the mysteries of death. He maintains that death is not a negative process, a simple break- &nbsp; ing-down of the tissue, but an active &nbsp; &nbsp; agent born with the birth of the egg, and destined if not checked to gain the upper hand of the life instinct and bring about its extinction. He an- nounces that ha has been able to check this death tendency in the eggs of the sea-urchin, and adds: "This &nbsp; means nothing less than that on a minute scale the secret of eternal life &nbsp; is in the power of mankind." The factor by which the professor has &nbsp; achieved this end is the nasty poison, cyanide of potassium.
