CHAPTER IV. A VANISHING POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
CHAPTER IV. A TANISHIN» POINT OB' VIEW. When Ringbrand left the hospitable man- sion and began his two mile walk to Tre- garthen, he was distracted by more different kinds of perplexity than usually fall to the lot of a man of his temperament. The friendly footing upon which, he was estab- lished at 'The Laurels' gave him opportunities for constant association with Hester whioh had swept away all his earlier doubts as to the depth and reality of his attachment for this girl ; but, assuming that he could win her,-and he was by no means sure that it was so written in the book of possibilities, she was different enough from his ideal to demand a very disconcerting readjustment of the lines upon whioh he had formed his somewhat indefinite plans for a domestio future. Like most other men, he had painted ' for his own life a possible matrimonial background, but in this picture the colors harmonized artistioally with the neutral tints of his own studious habits. There was to be a quiet hom...
The Liverpool [?], PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
Published evkry Saturday Morning. . SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1898. I We have not long had the Premier's mani- festo before us, and it is now followed by that of Mr. Barton. The two leaders are about to fight out their quarrel in the same electorate, the advantage of position being with Mr. Reid, and so their manifestoes, ad- dressed to the same body of electors, crave comparison. Mr. Barton's address is an able document putting the whole question shortly and clearly, and explaining how it is that he and Mr. Reid differ. But after the run of Want-Reid speeches, full of the most un gentlemanly and unstatesmanlike abuse of their political opponents, the difference in tone of this address is very noticeable. Not once irt his speeches, nor now in his mani- festo, has ¡Mr. Barton departed from the lofty and dignified attitude he assumed in the beginning. It has fallen to Ibis lot to have to somewhat severely criticise his op- ponents, but his manner of doing so has al- ways been that of a man w...

TRAVELLER. CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
1BAVILUB. GANADA. Many incorrect ideas are formed, by people who do not live in Ganada, regarding its olimate. Great extremes exish between the Bummers,and winters. The summer is muoh hotter than that of England, and the inhabi- tants htve to wear very light clothing. Venomous insects are rife in summer, and it is dangerous for anyone to go out without a vveil on his or her faoe, because of the stings of these insects. The farmers manage to get rid of them by making a fire producing a thick smoke, which is attractive to them (the insecte), and they all draw towards this smoke. The winter is muoh colder than that of England, and the men have to wear four pairs of trousers and four pairs of stockings, owing to the severe oold. The farmers do not watoh their labourers whilst at work, beoanse they must either work or freeze.
AT EVENTIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
AT EVENTIDE. Gosforth at eventide, Commune with thine own bosom and be still ; Check the wild impulses of wayward will, And learn the nothingness of human pride.

QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
QUESTIONS. What abe Nuisances of the NiöhtP-* Of all nuisances, a nuisance at night-time ña- par excellence the moBt intolerable. But then the statement is, of course, but a oonunonplaoe expression of tue usual senti- ment expressed by good domestic men. What is a nuisance of the night, legally, absolutely, according to the striotest inter- pretation of the terms ? A friend of mine,, a lawyer and literateur whom I frequently I consult, thus speakoth : ' Every person who blows a horn or creates any musical noise and disturbance in the night-time, in the neighbourhood of a dwelling honse, so as to disturb the repose of the inmates, is guilty of a nuisance ; and will be responsible in damages unless he can set forth and prove some lawful justification for making the nooturnal noiee.' Here, then, we have it in a nutshell. Our nooturnal hours are sacred to the balmy rites of domestioity. No maa shall murder rest and go unpunished. The lo w guards Nature while 'She givoth her beloved slee...
MORE HOPE FOR THE FAT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
[ MORE HOPE FOR THE FAT. A Maiienbad physician. Dr. Dirsoh, after making some praetioal suggestions concern- ing diet in obesity, expresses himself as a strong advocate of exercise and active move- ments, the state of the heart being always taken into consideration. In ansemio sub- jects passive movements and massago aro to be recommended. Great importance Li attributed to diminution in the hours ofi sleep, during whioh the aotivity of meta- bolism is reduced ; sleep should be en- tirely forbidden during the day. Tissue ohaugo is also to be increased by baths, particularly in springs rioh in carbon dioxode, whioh aro most stimulating to the skin. Turkish baths are also of value if the heart is sound. Finally, it is of importance to secure a pure air, rich in ozone, especially in a high and wooded neighbourhood. The lungs are thus stimulated to greater aotivity, and the offeofc is aided by the change in the patient's habits and occupa- tions.
A 'DEAD' SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
A «DEAD» SEÜRET. For a man who is no1 finical as to what becomes of his body after death, and who wants to economise in point of funeral expenses, Mexico is about as good a country in whioh to 'shuffle off this mortal coil' as any. In faot, it might be considered as quite the plaoe for a scientific gentleman (in moderate ciroumstanoes) to die, for there it is possible to get a third* class interment including all the advantages of a first-rate burial, without the possibility of your friends being a bit the wiser for at least five or six years. This state of things is due to a peouliar system in vogue there of disposing of the dead ; and while to the frugal man it offers some inducements, liko all. economy it is fraught with its inconveuionoos. One of theBe is that a ohoap intormont means only a loase of a grave, with the oorpae nubjeot to removal at Its oxpiration. (Wore most of us to die in Moxioo we woutd, perhaps, rather pay a little extra and revel in the luxury of perpetual bur...
HOW ROYALTY TRAVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
HOW ROYALTY TRAVELS. The elaborate precautions whioh ara taken to protect European Sovereigns in travelling contrast curiously with the simplicity with whioh the President of the United States moves about. The Kaiser of Germany has patrols along the roads ho uses, both high- ways and railroads. Ho is always preceded on ordinary roads by guards, who go ahead and beat the bushes and look out for any Anarchist who may lie in wait for him. When the Czar travels along any railway line the road is patrolled for days before by armed guards. They aro stationed regularly throughout the entire distance at intervals of 200 yards. Up to the day the train is scheduled to pass they are allowed to take it easy, oarrying their rifles meanwhile slung over the'r shoulders. Six hours before the passage of the Imperial train they shoulder their rifles and march briskly up and down the track. An hour before the Imperial train passes the guards are required to stund with their backs towards the train, an...

sonsos. " .-. -&lt;*> AN AMATEUR CHIROPODIST. The ' dangers of taking too literally the - absurd medical advice given in the corres« pondenoe columns of certain weeklies waa illustrated a few months ago at Olonoygowen. Patrick O'Brien suffered from corns, ile was advised by the ' doctor' to burn them out-how, it was not ptatod. He rolled a oaiioo bandage round his toes, steeped the bandage in petroleum, and ignited it. He - is now wiser, but is under surgical treat- ment. The corn, according to the ' British, and Oolonial Druggist,' is still ripening.
A SOLDIER'S LIFE IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
I A SOLDIER'S LIFE IN INDIA. During the hot Beaaon, April to August, the gun fires, or reveille, sounds at from five to six a.m., according to sunrise. The mos- quitoes take good care that we don't got much rest, as they keep humming like bees around us all night. We have all sorts of contrivances for trying to keep them from biting us, one made by placing an upright at eaoh end of the bedstead and covering it all over with thin gauze, and to hang low enough so as to tuok under the bed, but, even then, the mosquito will find his way to your nose. The sultry heat at night time, as well as during the day-makes you very restless. Oertainly there is the 'punkah,' a largo kind i of fan, one end of whioh hangs from the oeil ing, midway between every two bedoots, all of whioh, in eaoh bungalow (barrack room) are joined together by ropes, and are pulled by reliefs of natives during the night and hot- test portion of the days At reveille the native 'ba\f arohi' (cook) arrives and places abou...

CARRIER PIGEONS. j A carrier pigeon when travelling novor feodB. If the distance bo long, it nias on without stopping to take nutriment, and at last arrives thin, exhausted, and almoBt dying. Tf corn be presented to it it refuses, contenting itself with drinking a little water and then sleeping. Two hoars after, it begins to eat with great moderation, and sloeps again immediately afterwards. If the fly has been very prolonged, it will proceed in this manner for 48 hours before recovering its normal mode of eating.
QUEER FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
QUEER FISH. The flying-fish may be called . fish, flesh, and fowl.* The ediblo part of a fish is oalled its llesh by so good an authority as the Rev. J. G. Wood in his ' Natural History,' and as the flying-fish is much prized by sailors as a ohtnge of diet, wo may with propriety say that its flesh is eatun by them. Its claim to bo oalled 'fowl' rests on its power of leaping from the water and sustaining itself in the air by means of its immense pectoral fins for distances not exceeding 200 yards. The connoisseurs of whale's flesh assert that there are three qualities of meat in every whale, the best resembling mutton, the second quality imitating Dork, and the third resembling beof. Tho thunny, or tunny, is also said to merit the appellation. Thoy aro met with in shoals in the Mediterranean in the height of the season (May and June). Thoy are very delicious food, but the flesh is so solid that it seems something between fish and meat ; it is aB firm as sturgeon, but boyond ali compa...
MIMICRY AIDS THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
MIMICRY AIDS THEM. 4 In all the years I have been travelling I have never heard any imitators and mimics away from the regular boards who could compare with certain of the poachers that friends in the oountry have taken the trouble to introduce to me,' said a very well-known performer, who is regarded as the beet bird and animal imitator now before the public. 4 The ordinary townsman is, of course, quite ignoraut of the importance to a skilful poaoher of being able to imitate the cry of a bird or animal to its mate so closely that even the latter is deoeived, but I have heard rough fellows in corduroy who could beat me hollow at this. Of course, some of them nowadays nae appliunaes that produce imitative sounds, as, in the case of giving the partridge 4 oall,' when the poacher covers the top of a tailor's thimble with parchment, through whioh he runs a piece of fiue gut, that, being drawn baokwards and forwards, gi ved the imitation required. 4 Bat most ot theje men, in Yorkshire es...
ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 July 1898
ANTS. A great many persons firmly believe that ants do not sleep. This superstition arises from the fact that in moonlight nights during the summer ants have often been seen at work about their nests. People of almost all nations have believed that ants lay up food for the winter. Tho alleged fact ia mentioned many times in ancient and modern literatures, and is directly stated in the Book of Proverba. Really they do no snob, thing. During the winter thoy remain in a torpid or semi-torpid condition, reviving only under the genial warmth1 of the spring sun.
