Did You Know This? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Did You Know This? Very large muffs are being used this winter in England. The Queen Victoria Memorial Fund now amounts to £185,000. Ninety-four new Baptist chapels were opened in Great Britain during 1901. Senator Hanna has been elected chairman of the new American Labor Conciliation Court. Suicides from London's bridges have been re- markably frequent of late. Golf has gained a great vogue in France, and new links are being laid out in many places. The crowds at the ping-pong tournament at Westminster attest the great popularity of the game. The Scottish Miners' Federation is already look- ing forward to a general election, and will shortly select its candidates. The electric cars at Ramsgate are said to make an undue noise, which is attributed to the re- sonant nature of the chalk soil. Three large dynamite cartridges with electric detonators were found in Paris recently in the sewers beneath the Boulevard Hausmann. Captain Sycamore, of the Shamrock, said in England recently that...

Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. The last man brought in a fairly good supply of books, although from the standpoint of fiction none can be called noteworthy. Perhaps the book that will furnish the greatest amount of interest is the "Confessions of a Cari- caturist," by Harry Furniss. Selections have already been given in this column, and the fact that Mr. Furniss visited Australia and delighted large audiences with his illustrated lectures, adds greater interest to his work—which, quite apart from that, is very entertaining. "Sepoy Generals"—a grand title for a book, especially as it deals with men from Wellington to Roberts, who have done so much to make the British Empire, especially the Indian portion of it, what it is to-day. George Forrest is the writer, and he is well seized of his subject. A volume which will also attract general attention is Cap- tain Mahan's "Types of Naval Officers." Captain Mahan's "Influence of Sea Power Upon History" was one of the most widely rea...

ROYALTY IN THE SCHOOLROOM. SOME SUBJECTS WHICH OUR KING AND HIS RELATIVES DID NOT LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

ROYALTY IN THE SCHOOLROOM. SOME SUBJECTS WHICH OUR KING, AND HIS BELATIVES DID NOT LIKE. King Edward, when a boy, was far from being an indifferent or careless pupil; he was, in fact, in many Instances unusually sharp, and even when -away from the clutches of his tutors often spent many hours studying privately those things which most took his fancy. One subject, however. His Majesty never liked, and that was Latin. "I suppose one ought to sneak respectfully of the dead," once His Ma jesty said to his brother, the late Duke of > Edinburgh. "But I don't see how anyone can say | much good about Latin. If it's a dead language, / why don't they let it rest in peace?" / On one occasion a certain eminent professor ; said to the young Prince (as he then was): j "Your Royal Highness will never regret learn- J ins Latin. It will be of the utmost use to you i in after life. A geod knowledge of Latin and S Greek gives you a tremendous hold over your S own language. You will never be at faul...

MAX O'RELL'S LEXICON OF LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

1 MAX O'RELL'S LEXICON OF LOVE. > As might have been anticipated by any save the most sanguine, the blow has fallen, and Max O'Rell's fancies, like the young man's, have lightly turned to thoughts of love. The popular humorist's lexicon of love is very amusing. Here are a few extracts culled at random from it:— "I will love you eternally" signifies "My love for you will continue as long as it lasts." "It is an eternity since I saw you" means "I have not seen you for two days." "I will never change" is often used, instead of "I like to pass my time agreeably, no matter at whose expense; and, as I And this disposition convenient, 1 shall probably never change it." "I wish I could love you" In the mouth of a woman means "I actually do love you." And so does "I wish I could hate you." "I would rather see you dead than belonging to another" does duty for "I believe in homoeo pathy for love complaints. Like cures the like. If you belonged to another, I myself should have to love anothe...

A PRINCE OF THIEVES. EXPERT SWINDLER CAPTURED BY SWISS POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

i ^=r > A PRINCE OF THIEVES. ! EXPERT SWINDLER CAPTURED BY > SWISS POLICE. The Zurich police have recently captured a soi disant baron, who is wanted by the police of London, Paris, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Berlin, and 32 other places in all parts of Europe. He is the m<jst famous confidence-trick swind ler and railway thief in Europe, his thefts during the last four years amounting in the aggregate to more than £34,000. He is a njan of elegant manners, and speaks without any perceptible accent no fewer'than nine languages. He has adopted 26 aliases, ranging from an English earl to a German haron, and at times he has scattered his favors as a Russian prince or an, Hungarian count. One of his recent thefts took place at Aix-la Chapelle, when he robbed an English lady of trinkets to the value of £3000. He used to put up at the best hotels, make the acquaintance of rich visitors, invite them to dine, and by this means gain their confidence. He would then get them to cas...

Bogus Millionaire. AMAZING STORY OF AMERICAN EFFRONTERY. PARK LANE TO PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

Bogus Millionaire. AMAZING STORY OF AMERICAN EFFRONTERY. —*— PARK LANE TO PRISON. Judging from advance samples, the spring crop of "American milionalres" for the London mar ket will prove expensive luxuries for London so ciety (says the "Express.") "Where the principal asset is that American 'commodity known as "nerve," results are some times disastrous for a confiding British public. They certainly were in this case, in which the central character was a dashing "American mil lionaire," with the usual American assets and a trunkful of carefully hand-made credentials. Curtis Wakefield was the gentleman's name. And because of Mr. Curtis Wakefield, Park-lane may call upon Scotland Yard to probe the ante cedents of future tenants, London solicitors may submit all "American-made" letters of introduc tion to handwriting experts, and the nobility may be forced to chain down its country estates. Mr. Wakefield's return from the United States, whence he sailed on December 13 with his pretty w...

Lord Rosslyn's Luck. HOW HIS "SYSTEM" IS WORKING AT MONTE CARLO. HE LOSES £2000. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

Lord Rosslyn's Luck. HOW HIS "SYSTEM" IS WORKING AT MONTE CARLO. —♦— HE LOSES £2000. The hero of the hour here (says a Monte Carlo telegram of January 1) is Lord Rosslyn. He has been here three days, and has created quite a sensation already with his system. He began on Monday by staking a louis, to the great surprise of those who thought that so modest a venture could hardly lead to great results. In itself, however, the stake was dra matic. and excited anticipation as to the subsequent layings. Throughout Monday his lordship played with varying luck, but he pegged away steadily, and came out a winner at the end of the play of £420. He stuck to trente-et-quarante, and paid a man to keep his seat the while he refreshed his Exhausted spirit with food and exercise. Yesterday fickle fortune turned against him, and he lost a cool *£2000 without jturning a hair, to the admiration of the spectators, who crowded round him to the point of inconve nience. To-day I had a short talk with Lord ...

SCIENTIFIC SLEEP. LONDON DOCTOR'S HYPNOTIC CURES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

SCIENTIFIC SLEEP. * LOHDON DOCTOB'8 HYPNOTIC CUBES. Hypnotism as a recognised cure for certain ail ments ia on the increase. In the United States it is a recognised science, and laws affecting it are in force. But such is sot the case in England, and very little is heard of it. Several correspondents, however, grateful for the good done them, have written to the Loadon "Express," giving details of their cures and the names of the practitioners. Among the medical men mentioned ia a young doctor in Hackney (London), who has studied the subject for the last 18 months. His results hare been astonishing. Among cases treated successfully was one of a man with chronic rheumatism, which bad crip pled hia knees so that walking was impossible. The doctor treated him for several weeks, in ducing short sleeps, and "suggesting" he should walk without crutches. The patient can walk with ease now. On being asked for a practical demonstration of his work, the doctor kindly sent for a patient, a you...

The Federal Capital. WHY NOT AN ITINERANT ONE? AN ILLUSTRATED SUGGESTION TO MR. BARTON AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

The Federal Capital. WHY NOT AN ITINERANT ONE?     AN ILLUSTRATED SUGGESTION TO   MB. BARTON AND OTHERS.   All the time now wasted in the Federal Parliament about the Federal capital site could easily be avoided if Mr. Barton and his Cabinet chose to adopt the suggestion   of our artist until they are disposed to give   effect to the Commonwealth Act.   The idea ought to commend itself, even to   Ministers, who seem to be afraid to move in the matter of the selection of the per- manent site. It may be said at once that the suggestion conveyed in this sketch is no new one. Mr. Reid and other politicians have more than once expressed somewhat similar ideas. The present, therefore, seems an opportune time to throw out a practical idea in actual black and white. An itinerant capital would offer many ad- vantages. Ministers could visit various parts of the Commonwealth without leaving ...

It was stated that if anyone could tend a   fish "story" taller than the one with which this   column closed last week, it would be gleefully   published. A correspondent forwards the fol-   lowing "fact":—   "An old sailor and his son were travelling by   sea to Queensland. One day the boy fell over-   board, and before help could reach him a large   shark swallowed him. The father, horrified by   the occurrence, took up the first article that came   to his hand, which happened to be a grind-   stone. This he threw at the shark, but the mons-   ter was ready for it, and just as it was about to   strike him, opened up his jaws and swall...
