EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 15 January 1886
EMIGRATION. The returns for the ten months ending October 31'show a marked falling'off in the number of emigrants from theUnited Kingdom to the various colonies and America as compared with the number during the came months of last year (says the Home Ntews). The difference amounts to 84,000, and in the face of an unexampled period.of commercial depression at home, it seems at first difficult to account forthe decreased number of emigrants. Roughly speaking, the number of emigrants has annually amounted to upwards of 230,1000, whilst often this total has been exceeded. But it is in the conditioin of the colonies, rather than in that of the mother country, that a satisfactory explanation is to be found. The depression of trade feltin the United Kingdom exists in an almost greater degree in the colonies them selves. Those who have failed at home through want of energy and strength of will, are beginning to find that the same qualities which might ensure success at home are wanted also...
THE CABIN BOY. A STORY OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 15 January 1886
THE CABIN BOY. A STORY OF THB SEA. On my way across the Sound I fell in with two old sea-captains-John Streeter and Asa Morton-with whom I had some slight acquaintance. Streeter was about three score, and had followed the sea `during most of his life. Morton was con siderably younger, but still a seaman of much experience.. The subject of the abolition of flogging our navy came up in course of conversation, and Captain Morton expressed himself very decidedly in favour of keeping up that time honoured institution, the cat-o'-nine-tails. "I am not prepared to say," remarked Captain Streeter in feply, " that the con dition of our men-o'-wsars-men will be in every ease benefited by the abolition of flogging, though.I am sure that it might be so. I mean that the officers have it within their power to do awaywith nearly all kinds of punishment-that is, of course, for such offences as are usually punished on shipboard." "For my part," returned Morton, "I should not care to take command of ...
CHILDREN'S CORNER. THE HONEST OLD TOAD. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 15 January 1886
CHILDREN'S CORNER. THILE RONEST OLD TOAD,. Oh, queer littl chap is the old toad, A funny old fellow is e; Living under the stone by the soide of the road, 'Neath the shade of the old willow tree. He is dressed all in brown, from his too to his crown, Save his vest, that is silvery white. He takes a long iap in the heat of the day And walks in the cool, dewy night. "Ramp, yaup," says the frog, from his home in the bog, But the toad he savo never a word, Ito tries to bo good, like the children who should Bo seeo, but never be heard. When winter draws near Mr. Toad goes tobed, And sleeps just as sound as a top. Bot when May blossoms follow soft April showers Hoe comres out with a skip, jump, and hop. Ile changes his dress only once I confess Evory spring; and his old worn-ont coat With trousers and waisttoat, he rolls in a ball, And stuffs the whole thing down his throat. "'K-rruk, k.rrk, " says the frog, from his home in the bog ; But thoeloadhe says never a word, He tries to be good,...

COAL. II.—THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF COAL. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 16 January 1886
COAL. By W. IAvs~xIEU WILAMSB. II.--"THE DIFFERENT MINDS OF COAL. Those who are devoted to the study of words may like to know that the original signification of the word "coal" was dif ferent from that which is now accepted. In the third edition of the "Eneyclopxdia Britannica" (1797) the article on coal commences by telling us that "Coal, amongst chemists, signifies any substance containing oilwhich has been exposed to the fire in closed vessels, so that all its volatile principles are expelled, and that it can sustain a red heat without further decompiosition. Coal is commonly solid, black, very dry, and considerably hard. The specific character of perfect coal is its capacity of burning with access of air, while it becomes red hot and sparkles, sometimes with a sensible flame which gives little lighlt, with no smoke or soot capable of blackening white bodies." We are further told that "Coal can never be .formed but by the phllogiston of a body which has been in an oily state; he...

THE KING OF BAVARIA. SKETCH OF THE CAREER OF AN ECCENTRIC MONARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 16 January 1886
THE KING OF BAVARIA. SKIETCn OF THE CAREER OF AN ECCEBN TRI0 MONARCH. For a king in full possession of his faculties no stranger specimen of royalty has been witnessed in modern Europe than King Louis II., chief of the House of Wittelsbach, Sing of Bavaria, and Count Palatine of the Rhine. He ascended the throne at the age of nineteen, in the year 1864. From the first he exhibited no pleasure in the pomps of his position, or Isnuseo of its responsibilites. Two years after his accession the war broke out be tween Prussia and Austria. While he did not hinder his advisers and family from acting in con formitywith the ancienti alliance between his State and the House of Hapsburg, he remained personally neutral and uncon cerned. His attitude of a mere spectator if he were even that; facilitated the task of reconciling South with North Germany. Ho mixed himself up very faintly with the whole matter. Rtichard Wagner was elaborating the Nibolungenlied; and there was no room in King Louis' h...

That this cei' be done, and suc cessfully too, any old, intelligent brooeeder will tell you, always, of course, leaving accidents out of account. To keep our birds in health, we must attend to: three things at least-cleanliness, food, and exer cise. As to cleanliness, the cages ought to be kept as sweet as young nutsi it is a good plan to turn the inmates of one cage into another while you are givilng the usual dwelling a thorough clean out: This is best done by simple soap and water, or carbolic soap, and a final rinse in water in which alittle disinfecting fluid is dropped. Seeoo that the cage is thoroughly dry before the birds are returned. Where you only keep one or two pet birds, it is a good thing to have an additional cages nothing delights a starling, for in stance, more than a few hours spent in a different cage. As to food, it ouglt to be simple as simple can be...
