A Baby Carriage Race in a Suburb of Berlin. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A Baby Carriage Race in a Suburb of Berlin. The suburbs of Berlin are very green and fresh, and the better-class people hold fetes of all kinds in the evenings, after their business has been done in the city. A favorite amusement is to make the nurse-girls, with their perambulators, race for prizes. The winners get something useful—a cap or an apron—and the baby gets a toy.— &nbsp; "The Graphic."
CRITICISING OUR FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
CRITICISING OUR FLEET. The British are in the habit of maintaining that, while their army is engaged with the Boers, their fleet still dominates the seas. This argument, we believe, is intended as a consola- tion—a small one at that—for a small minority of British statesmen. The British fleet is in- deed numerically superior to any foreign fleet, but it becomes inferior when it faces the com- bination of two great Powers. —"Novoe Vrem- ya." St. Petersburg.
NEW R.C. CATHEDRAL IN LONDON. PROGRESS OF THE GREAT BUILDING AT WESTMINSTER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
NEW R.C. CATHEDRAL IN LONDON. &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PROGRESS OF THE GREAT BUILDING &nbsp; AT WESTMINSTER. &nbsp; The new Roman Catholic Cathedral behind Victoria-street, London, is gradually shedding its envelope of scaffolding, and revealing its enormous expanses of red brick and white stone. At the summit of its lofty campanile the builders' impedimenta still linger; the en- trance front is incomplete; at the opposite end, near the Archbishop's house, are more poles and planks. But the progress made is visible almost from day to day. Yet it is not in accord with fact to announce, as has been done in a London newspaper, that this magnificent church will probably be open- ed in the coronation week. "No," said Monsignor Poyer, Cardinal Vaugh- an's private secretary, to a "Morning Leader" representative. "All that we hope to do by that date is to open one of the chapels in a temporary fashion for the use of the congrega- tion f...
A Royal Divorce. GRAND DUKE OF HESSE'S MARRIAGE DECLARED DISSOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A Royal Divorce. GRAND DUKE OF HESSE'S MAR- RIAGE DECLARED DISSOLVED. It was officially announced in Berlin that by de- cree of the Hessian High Court of Justice, dated the 21st instant, the marriage between the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess of Hesse is dis- solved. The marriage, which was celebrated on April 19, 1894, was a love marriage and the Grand Duke had to combat considerable opposition on the part of relatives before he secured the hand of his then 18-year-old cousin, daughter of Prince Alfred of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. A few years afterwards, gradually increasing differences of opinion caused an open breach, which was patched up, but it is stated that the Grand Duchess found it impossible to harmonise herself with the surroundings of her new home, and "unconquerable antipathy" is given as the ground of the present divorce. The only child of the marriage, Princess Eliza- beth, will, for the present, live with her mother, but it is anticipated that she will later return to her...
THE ART OF IRONING. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE ART OF IRONING. Fashionable linen must have the dull finish that so few people know how to secure. Two kinds of irons are required to get the dull finish—the ordinary one, and the one especially for polishing. For the collars and cuffs, run the ordinary iron lightly over both sides to remove the dampness. Then take the polishing iron and polish the right side of the piece until it is dry and glossy. Then, with a damp cloth, go gently and quickly over it again. The death rate of infants under 12 months in England is 15 per cent.; in Scotland 12 per cent.; in Ireland 11 per cent.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22. &nbsp; In our paper of Thursday, we stated all that &nbsp; was then known respecting the disposition to &nbsp; mutiny among two or three ships in Bantry Bay. &nbsp; Intelligence from thence was received on Sunday &nbsp; night, down to the 15th; and the following is an &nbsp; extract of a letter from an officer serving in that &nbsp; squadron:— &nbsp; &nbsp; "Bantry Bay, Dec. 15, 1801. &nbsp; "We are still in a very unpleasant situation; &nbsp; the crews at the four ships who refused going to &nbsp; the West Indies still remaining refractory. &nbsp; "Sir Andrew Mitchell, not wishing to proceed &nbsp; to extremities without positive instructions, has &nbsp; written to the Admiralty, and their Lordships' &nbsp; determination is anxiously expected. &nbsp; "Admiral Sir Erasmus Gower has been exceed- &nbsp; ingly ill, but is ...
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23. UNION CLUB, CUMBERLAND HOUSE.—This elegant establishment, certainly superior in all respects to every institution of a similar nature, either in this country or on the Continent, pro- mises to answer the grand object of its formation —that of concentrating the most distinguished talents, respectability, and fortune of the United Kingdom. The finishing and fitting up of the house cost the late Duke of Cumberland no less than £69,000, and since the appropriation of it to its present use, in consequence of the Union, large sums have been expended in rendering the accommodation worthy of the Members of the Club. The salaries of some of our principal Singers are certainly very large, but some allowance must be made for the mortification of being obliged to get by heart and repeat the nonsense &nbsp; assigned to them under the name of "dialogue." &nbsp; With the very liberal encouragement given by &nbsp; the Managers of our Theatres to Autho...
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24 [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24. &nbsp; &nbsp; Several alterations in the Hotel occupied by &nbsp; &nbsp; Marquis Cornwallis have been paid for at the &nbsp; &nbsp; expense of the French Government. But the &nbsp; &nbsp; magnificence of his Lordship astonishes the &nbsp; neighborhood of Amiens, which pours in daily &nbsp; to see the preparations for his table. &nbsp;
CORONATION FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
CORONATION FESTIVITIES. &nbsp; —♦— As some hundreds of Australians intend wit- &nbsp; nessing the Coronation, whether as distin- &nbsp; guished or ordinary guests is not yet certain, &nbsp; they will be interested in the following:— &nbsp; It is understood that the Coronation functions &nbsp; will include a naval review at Spithead and a &nbsp; gala performance at the opera. There will be a ball at the Foreign Office, and probably a gar- den party at Hatfield House, and perhaps a ball at Devonshire House. The Buckingham Palace entertainments will be a couple of Royal banquets, a State ball, a State concert, and (on the evening of the Coro- nation) a Royal, diplomatic, and official recep tion. Very few invitations for these functions will be issued outside of the official ring. As all Ministers and ex-Ministers are, ipso facto, entitled to be asked, there remain, by the time the Royalties are provided for very few invita- tions ...
A NEW TERROR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
A NEW TERROR. —♦— A most ingenious burglary was carried out the other day with such success at Vincennes, near Paris, that it is quite likely that the house- breaking fraternity of other parts may soon adopt the same tactics. A handsome, well-dressed young woman knocked at the door of a villa, and begged protection against three evil-looking men who were, she alleged, following her. The house- holder, suspecting nothing, kindly escorted his visitor till she had nearly reached the place where she said she lived, and then returned home to find that in his absence the place had been ran- sacked by thieves.
THE BOY'S PETITION. TOUCHING STORY OF THE AUSTRIAN EMPEROR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE BOY'S PETITION. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TOUCHING STORY OF THE AUSTRIAN &nbsp; EMPEROR. The Emperor Franz Joseph was leaving the church of St. Antonius (Vienna) the other day, after attending the ceremony of consecration, when a lad dressed as a baker's apprentice push- ed his way through the crowd, evaded the swarms of detectives, and ran right up to the Emperor's carriage, which was already in motion. He held up a letter, which he wanted to hand to the Emperor, and Franz Joseph had the carriage stopped to take the missive. It ran as fallows:— Dear Mr. Emperor,—My mother has been very ill for many years, and no hospital will admit her because she is an incurable. I can earn enough for myself, but I cannot earn enough to give my sick mother the things she needs. I beg you, dear Mr. Emperor, to order that she shall be admitted to some hospital. Two hours later an ambulance arrived before the lad's home, and conveyed his mother to a charitable instituti...
THE EVOLUTION OF THE GUN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
THE EVOLUTION OF THE GUN. As the use of artillery became more common, and the advantages of portability and a greater rapidity of fire were recognised, guns, except among the Orientals, became smaller, but of better workmanship and construction. Inventors began to try their hands at all sorts of improve- ments or attempts at improvement, and in the course of a hundred years or so the number of different pieces of cannon, large and small, muzzle or breech loading, was simply legion. There were cannon, cannon royal, and demi-cannon, three or four classes of culverins, bombards, mortars, perriers, serpentines, carthouns, curtails, passe- volants, or zebratanas, basilisks, orgues, sakers, minions, mojanes, falcons, falconets, robinets, fowlers, bases, slings, port pieces, murderers, drakes, aspics, double dogs, and lagtors, to say nothing of ribadoquins, flying dragons, and part- ridge mortars. &nbsp; —"Gentleman's Magazine."
SECRET KNOTS UNTIED. AMAZING MARRIAGES HAVE SEQUELS IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
SECRET KNOTS UNTIED. AMAZING MARRIAGES HAVE SEQUELS IN COURT. Captain Haldane, of the Gordon Highlanders, &nbsp; the officer who made the famous escape from Pre- &nbsp; toria with Mr. Winston Churchill, was the de- &nbsp; fender in an action for divorce at Edinburgh re- &nbsp; cently. &nbsp; Mrs. Haldane said she met her husband at &nbsp; Belfast in 1888. He was a lieutenant then. They &nbsp; were married by declaration before the sheriff, &nbsp; but the fact was kept secret from the captain's &nbsp; brother-officers and relations. &nbsp; They spent the marriage day in Dunoon, and &nbsp; parted in the evening. She went to live with &nbsp; her relatives, and he used to visit her during &nbsp; the day. &nbsp; They never lived as man and wife. In 1893 &nbsp; she asked for a home and money. He said he &nbsp; could not give her a home, and afterwards &nb...
WHERE "CHRISTIANS, AWAKE"! WAS COMPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
WHERE "CHRISTIANS, AWAKE"! WAS COMPOSED. This quaint building is situated at Kersall, on &nbsp; the outskirts of the city of Manchester. &nbsp; It was formerly a religious house, but in later years became the residence of the Byron family. It was here that John Byron, poet and steno- grapher, was born, and within the walls of this famous old-world dwelling he composed that im- mortal hymn which at Christmas tide is on the lips of English-speaking people the world over "Christians, Awake.,Salute the Happy Morn!" &nbsp; Byron also wrote his "Colin and Phoebe" at &nbsp; Kersall. The Pope was shortly to issue an encyclical condemning all manifestations of revolt against the Papacy when the last mail left.
TEACHING THE DUMB TO SPEAK. AN UNIQUE FRENCH METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
TEACHING THE DUMB TO SPEAK. —♦— AN UNIQUE FRENCH METHOD. &nbsp; The method of teaching the deaf and dumb children to speak, in the school of the Abbe de l'Epee in Paris, is extremely interesting (says "Black and White"). Speech embraces not only sounds, but also movements, breathing, and vibration. The deaf and dumb have eyes to see the movements of the mouth—which are as varied and complex as the sounds which issue from it—and hands to feel the breath which escapes with the sound, as also the movement of the chest, of the larynx, of the head, and of the nostrils which accompany every vocal production. If the attention of the deaf and dumb is drawn to these phenomena, if their vision and their sense of touch are educated to interpret them as soon as they are produced, they will finally succeed in distinguishing the vowels, consonants, syllables, words, and phrases, and become initiated in the speech of their fellow- beings. Thus, in order to be able to speak, they will only ...
CURIOUS CHARGES AGAINST IRISH NURSES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902
CURIOUS CHARGES AGAINST IRISH NURSES. Unusual allegations against two nurses at &nbsp; Kanturk Workhouse Hospital, county Cork, have &nbsp; been the subject of inquiry by Dr. E. C. Bigger, &nbsp; a medical inspector under the Irish Local Gov- &nbsp; ernment Board. Until the report of Dr. Bigger &nbsp; has been considered by the Board, and the deci- &nbsp; sion of the latter made known, comment would, &nbsp; of course, be improper. &nbsp; But it may be stated that the nurses are ac- &nbsp; cused by certain male patients in the hospital of &nbsp; skimming the cream off the milk of the patients &nbsp; to use for their own tea and to make oaten meal &nbsp; cakes: It was also asserted that the nurses did &nbsp; not change the blankets as often as they should, &nbsp; and that the poultices were not put on in ac- &nbsp; cordance with the doctor's instructions. &nb...
