LATEST STEP TO SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
LATEST STEP TO SOCIETY. &nbsp; Just as by the advent of "bridge" a lady might &nbsp; become a favorite in the smartest society, pro- &nbsp; &nbsp; vided she was a finished player, so a young man &nbsp; of doubtful antecedents and a character whose &nbsp; prominent features are chiefly negative, and who &nbsp; is destitute of prospects or influence, is fought &nbsp; over by the most reputable hostesses in London if &nbsp; only a consummate master of ping-pong.— &nbsp; "Sketch." &nbsp;
Complete Short Story. THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
Complete Short Story. THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT. &nbsp; &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It was a big shop, with big beautiful windows wherein were writing-cases of polished green morocco, letter-cases of sweet-smelling Russian leather, cigar-cases of manly and even blood thirsty crocodile—every kind of case in every kind of material; there were miniature silver candlesticks for your writing-table holding red wax candlecules, there were thick sticks of sealing-wax in the palest heliotrope to be used in conjunction with them; there were calendars, and lamps, and dressing-cases and hunting flasks, and gun-metal pencils for the pocket. It was really a good shop, one which justified the placard which appeared in every one of the vast plateglass windows:— BIRTHDAY PRESENTS IN GREAT VARIETY. A beautifully-dressed school girl with slim black legs and a red jacket and big thoughtful eyes, stood and stared iuto the window. As she gazed her eyes became still ...

MOST FOLKS FIND THEIR LEVEL. "When ye kind o' git t' thinkin' &nbsp; &nbsp; You're the whole endurin' thing, &nbsp; &nbsp; When ye think th' world must have ye— &nbsp; &nbsp; Same's a kite must have a string— &nbsp; &nbsp; Then it's time t' fix fer dodgin' &nbsp; &nbsp; An' begin t' look aroun'— &nbsp; &nbsp; 'Cause they's somepin goin' t' hit ye &nbsp; &nbsp; That'll surely take ye down. &nbsp; &nbsp; When ye git t' livin' reg'lar &nbsp; &nbsp; Way up in th' upper air, &nbsp; &nbsp; An' when folks without no field glass &nbsp; &nbsp; Couldn't sight ye anywhere, &nbsp; &nbsp; Then it's time t' git yer parachute &nbsp; &nbsp; And see't it's workin' right, &nbsp; &nbsp; While ye glance t'ward terry firmy, &nbsp; &nbsp; Pickin'out a place t'light. &a...
A TRADE DISCLOSURES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
A TRADE DISCLOSURE. Certain tailoring firms buy foreign-made goods &nbsp; &nbsp; and palm them off as English made. There are, &nbsp; &nbsp; in the best-known circles of tailoring, a number &nbsp; &nbsp; of employers who, to-day, are carrying out this &nbsp; &nbsp; disastrous policy, cutting their own throats and &nbsp; &nbsp; doing their level best to destroy the prestige of &nbsp; &nbsp; English tailoring. When they have succeeded in &nbsp; &nbsp; this perhaps they will blame the journeyman!— &nbsp; &nbsp; "Tailor and cutter." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
A Man's Experience OF THE FIRST YEAR OF MARRIED LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
A Man's Experience OF THE FIRST YEAR OF MARRIED LIFE. It hardly seems like a year ago since I was married to Jane, but it is. Just a year ago this Christmas! Well, well! And it looks like three years! Who ever would have thought that the time could drag along so slowly? I suppose it's only a year, though it certainly feels longer. What a splendid time we had on our two weeks' honeymoon too! Why, we were like a couple of turtle-doves. She couldn't do enough for me nor I for her. And the dear girl positively wouldn't let me spend any money on her. She said I must not waste my hard-earned pounds on her. Hegho! how women do change! And then she refused to have anything or buy anything that I didn't like, and would persist in my having my own way in everything, and I naturally preferred to do as she pleased, and always wanted to surrender my own will to hers. I believe that mutual feeling lasted for nearly two months; but, great Scot, how some people can change! At that time she said she...
CREEDS AND TRADES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
CREEDS AND TRADES. Certain creeds seem to monopolise certain in- dustries. Practically all British manufacturers of cocoa, for example, are Quakers. Then, in London at any rate, a very large percentage of cigar merchants and all the best-known manufac- turers of Christmas cards are Jews. Whenever a Welshman comes to London to seek his fortune it is long odds on his making his pile either in the draper's or drag store business. Irishmen, probably owing to the fact that they lack the money-making instinct, flock to journalism.— "Tatler."
TO REMOVE CANDLE GREASE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
TO REMOVE CANDLE GREASE. &nbsp; Few things are better than a hot iron held over the spot, first scraping off any of the grease that is on the surface. If the cloth is smooth, put a piece of blotting-paper over the spot, and touch it with a hot iron. Change the surface of the blotting-paper over the spot till no trace of grease is left.
TO CLARIFY HOME-MADE WINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
TO CLARIFY HOME-MADE WINE. &nbsp; Dissolve two ounces of best isinglass in a small quantity of the wine to be fined, and set it near the fire for a day or two. Then beat the whites of two eggs to a stiff froth; take out half a gallon of the wine, mix all together, and put into the barrel. Let this stand for one day, then stop it up, and after three weeks it should be fine. The above quantities are meant tor a nine gallon cask.
LIME-WATER FOR BABIES [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
LIME-WATER FOR BABIES Made as follows, will cost less than half as much as when bought: Put half-an-ounce of slaked lime into a stoppered bottle, and on it pour two pints of water. Shake well for two &nbsp; or three minutes. Allow all to stand till the sedi- ment has completely fallen to the bottom, and then draw off the clear liquid into a well- stoppcred bottle for use.
GREEN TOMATO PICKLE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
GREEN TOMATO PICKLE. &nbsp; Place whole green tomatoes after removing &nbsp; their stalks in salt and water, leaving them there. for three days; then wipe perfectly dry, and set in a stone jar. Boil enough white wine vinegar &nbsp; to cover them with the following proportion of &nbsp; spices, etc., to each quart of vinegar. One &nbsp; ounce of ginger, quarter of an ounce of allspice, &nbsp; six cloves, two blades of mace, one capsicum, &nbsp; half-an-ounce of whole black pepper. Boil all &nbsp; for 10 minutes, then pour at once on the toma- toes; place a saucer over the mouth of the &nbsp; jar, and let it remain in a warm place all night. Next day carefully strain off the vinegar, &nbsp; add two ounces green nasturtium seeds to the tomatoes, boil the vinegar again for two minutes and pour hot over the pickle. When cold, tie &nbsp; closely down, and keep in a dry place for three &nbsp; or ...
PURIFYING DRINKING WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
PURIFYING DRINKING WATER. In a recent discussion in the Royal United Ser- vice Institution on "The Abolition of Typhoid Fever from the Army," Dr. Rideal gave some in- teresting facts respecting filters and chemicals for the sterilisation of drinking water. &nbsp; The essential fact, so far as South African ex- perience goes, is that the filters became instantly clogged. With clear water they might have been efficient, but they were of no use with the turbid fluid which the British troops had to put up with in the Transvaal and Orange River Colony. Dr. Parkes and Dr. Rideal have experimented with bisulphate of soda; a very small quantity of which is said ta kill the typhoid germ, and "the salt is being tried on a considerable scale in South Africa." It does not appear from the official statistics of deaths in the South African service from ty- phoid that the bisulphate of soda experiment has been completely successful, but perhaps it has not yet had a fair trial. Soldiers are...
SOME BRIGHT THINGS. TO LET OFF BURING DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
SOME BRIGHT THINGS. &nbsp; TO LET OFF DURING DINNER. —♦— Some husbands are domestic, and some are im- &nbsp; ported. &nbsp; There is an ounce of wisdom at the root of every &nbsp; grey hair. &nbsp; &nbsp; When a man is hopelessly in love, it greatly &nbsp; increases his sighs. &nbsp; A man's character is often shown by what he &nbsp; considers laughable. &nbsp; If a young woman bids you take heart, you can &nbsp; probably take hers. &nbsp; No invention, we think, ever caused quite so &nbsp; much talk as the telephone. &nbsp; If in doubt about an experiment, get some &nbsp; other fellow to try it first. A man seldom gets so full of emotion that he has no room for dinner. &nbsp; The only woman a man has a perfect right to &nbsp; dictate to is his pretty typine. &nbsp; The love that is dumb until it speaks on a &nbsp; tombstone is not w...
MEN BORN AFTER THEIR MOTHERS' BURIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
MEN BORN AFTER THEIR MOTHERS' BURIAL. Incredible though it may appear, it is never- theless a fact that more than one celebrated personage was actually born after the burial of his own mother, as the following authentic inci- dents will amply attest. Ebenezer Erskine, one of the founders of the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland, was born after the burial of his mother. Mrs. Erskine was buried in a trance, and on one of her fingers was a valuable ring. The gravedigger knew of this, opened the coffin, and was in the act of cut- ting off the ring-bearing finger when Mrs. Erskine awoke with a cry. She rose, walked home, and went upstairs without having encountered any of her family. The footsteps overhead caused her husband to remark, "If I didna' ken my wife was lyin' in the kirk-yard, I wad say that wis her fitstep." Mrs Erskine lived to become the mother of Ebenezer. It ie not generally known that General Lee, the notorious leader of the Southern forces during the American Civil...
TEA SEED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
TEA SEED. —♦— Tea seed, a by-product of an important indus- try, is awaiting profitable use. It was placed upon the market in London in 1886, under the name of "tanne," but nobody knew what to do with it, and there was no sale. An agent of the Indian Tea Association has now made a report upon the oil and cake. Tea-seed oil is clear, light, and yellow, with a more or less acrid taste, and is unsafe as an edible oil on account of its saponin. Tea-seed oil-cake is by the same con- stituent made dangerous food for cattle, while as a manure it is much inferior to other oil-seed cakes. It Is suggested that the oil might prove useful as lamp oil, and that the cake might serve an an insecticide.
PURIFYING MILK BY PRESSURE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
PURIFYING MILK BY PRESSURE. After aerated milk, sterilised milk, pepton- ised milk, lactated milk, and malted milk, there is now to be added a new kind of scientific hy- gienic milk. This is compressed milk. By a new process the microbes that abound in cow's milk are squeezed to death, at least a part of them are, for there are about 500,000 germs to every tea- spoonful of unboiled cow's milk. To investigate the effect of pressure on bac- teria, an apparatus has been devised which is remarkable for having produced what is prob- ably the greatest hydrostatic pressure ever reached, over 450,000lbs. per square inch. The particular object of these experiments was to determine whether the bacteria in milk might not be kill by hydrostatic pressure, so that it would keep a longer time without going sour. Moderate pressures were first tried, but ap- peared to have no effect. The pressures were then increased, and notable results were ob- tained. Milk subjected to pressures of 70 to 100 tons...
SUBMARINES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902
SUBMARINES. &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; The maritime problems of war do not require that the submarines should have the power of compassing a great distance at considerable depths; they need not have the properties of the &nbsp; Nautilus of Jules Verne, but it is absolutely &nbsp; necessary that such vessels, when navigating &nbsp; on the surface, should have a speed not much &nbsp; less than ordinary torpedo-boats, and that they &nbsp; should, in addition to this, be able to continue &nbsp; their course beneath the surface, at a depth of &nbsp; 16ft. or 20ft., when occasion requires. &nbsp; The necessity for diving will only arise at &nbsp; particular crises of an action, perhaps five or six &nbsp; times in half an hour. For navigating on the &nbsp; surface, a submarine should have a radius of &nbsp; action of from 300 to 400 miles; it should also have the power of passing easily f...
