THIEVES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

THIEVES. There are Borne thieves who have a grain of consideration in their nature. Borne Kontlemcn, who have thia peculiarity, rSX paid their attentions fo a certain house la Birmingham. The couple who oooupied it wore away, and, encouraged by their absenoo, the gentlemen entered the building by the cellar grating, mounted the cellar steps, at the top of which there was practically no bar to their thorough examina- tion of tho house. They went through each room and admired tho furniture, now and then helping themselves to an occasional knick-knack which tho3' thought might bo negotiable in a carofully-eeleoted market. Their tour of inspection was hardly satis- factory from a broad burglarious point of view, but thoy loft with about £20 worth of goods. On tho couple returning they saw their homestead had been rifled. Ono crumb of consolation, however, remained to thom. On ¿olag to ono of the bedrooms they founu tho wardrobe had been com- pletely ransacked, but a quantity of very val...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

LOCAL AND GENERAL, MR. Hamlin, of this town, was recently the successful applicant for an important position in an insurance company in Ade- laide. He left to take up his new appoint- ment by Thursday's express. We wish him every success in his new sphere. ON Sunday afternoon last as a stranger was driving through the town in a buggy, the horse bolted when in the vicinity of the Presbyterian Church and continued its career along Macquarie-street into Moore street, where the vehicle came in contact with Mr. F. Hartge's sign-post, with the result that the shafts of the vehicle were broken and the occupant thrown heavily on the road, where he picked himself up ap parently little the worse for his enforced acrobatic performance. AN officer from the Board of Health was in town on Thursday prosecuting enquiries respecting the state of the water, which form- ed the subject of a recent complaint from the Council. He was driven to various parts of the town, accompanied by the Mayor and Alder...

SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

SOCIAL. THE newly-built residence of Mr. James Martin, Hoxton Park, was the scene of festivities on the evening of the 7th instant, when about fifty guests responded to the generous invitation of the host and hostess to spend a social evening, the interior of the premises being tastefully decorated for the occasion. Dancing, to excellent music, com- menced shortly before 9 o'clock and was kept up without cessation till about midnight, when the company sat down to an excellent repast (provided by Mr. Freeman, of Liverpool). After an ample discussion of the good things provided, Mr. Smith, on behalf of the guests, proposed the " Host and Hostess," the toast being supported by Mr. C. Miller and most enthusiastically received. Mr. Martin suitably responded, after which dancing was resumed and continued on till the small hours. During the evening songs were rendered by various members of the company, and a Highland fling and Spanish waltz were admirably executed by Miss A. McDowell. The ...

A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. (To be continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [By W.T. C.] (To bc continued.) My second Sunday morning I spent at the Foundling Hospital, founded in 1739 by Captain Thomas Coram, a retired sea cap- tain, who, pitying the abandoned infants met with in his daily walks, established his first charity at Hatton Gardens. The present hospital was built in 1754. I shall never forget the scene presented in the chapel during divine service, to which I was ad- mitted upon the presentation of a small donation. Hundreds of boys and girls, spotlessly attired, the latter in stuff dresses, white pinafores and snowy French caps. The intoned servicé was sustained by a choir of 300 voices. I have listened to grand oratorios and passion music in the Royal Albert and the Queen's Halls, but the sing- ing by gifted artistes had not the charm for rae of these fresh young voices. Church over, I took a peep at the youngsters at dinner, then inspected the pictures and Handel's organ, upon which the great mast...

WREN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

WREN. I It ia painful to relate that the closing Íears of Sir Christopher Wren's work at St. 'aul'a were darkened by wrongful and insulting treatment. There had been a commission appointed to superintend the progress of tho works. An idea took pos- session of their minds that Wren wanted the work prolonged as much as possible in order that he might continue to enjoy his sumpt- uous salary (.£200 a year!) as architect. Accordingly (says a writer in * Cathedrals and Churches') throe years before the olose of the seventeenth century, a olause had been inserted in an Aot of Parliament whioh had authorised them to suspend the payment of one-half his salary till the wo**k was finished. But disputes about money were not all ; the Commissioners continued to meddle with the work and to thwart the architect. Contrary to his strongly-ex- pressed wishes they cooped up the Cathedral within an enolosuro consisting of a stone wall surmounted by a heavy oast-iron rail- ing. TiiOy insisted upon orow...

LIVERPOOL WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

LIVERPOOL WATER SUPPLY. j THE members of the Water and Sewerage Board waxed warm on Wednesday last con- cerning certain statements which it was stated had recently appeared in the columns of the Telegraph in reference to the Liverpool water supply. lt was strange, said Mr. Davis, that complaints should be made to the Board of Health, and through the news- papers, as to the quality of the water, and that none should come to the Water and Sewerage Board. At all events, no commun- ication has reached the offices of the board on the matter. If the water was of the qual-   ity stated, it was certainly discreditable to   the board. " And not very creditable to the authorities at Liverpool in not communicat- j ing with us," added the president, Mr. Rowe. Mr. Ahern was disposed to take no notice of the reports, and said so. The newspaper cor- respondents wrote, he said, as though Liver- pool were the most important place in Australia, and he took pains to dispel th...

The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

THE LIVERPOOL HERALD PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING.   SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 1898. SCARCELY had the final flush of the festive season vanished from view than the political horizon became vermillion hued with pro- grammes from Mr. Reid and protests from Mr. Lyne. The Premier gave out the policy of the Government at Mudgee and Gulgong, and after receptions which he likened to a jubilee, hurried back to town. His utter- ances in the constituencies of two Minis- terialists roused the ire of Mr. Lyne, who called them "airy statements," "jerry- mandering" and " unblushing assertions." Politicians are always excusable for the ex- travagance of their descriptions, but really no one can truthfully accuse Mr. Reid of making a speech without blushing. Directly the Premier rises to speak the blood surges to his face and forehead, and whether guilty or innocent of any political vagary, he blushes quite crimson. Mr. Lyne is, therefore,   clearly in error in accusing hi...

THT MYSTERIES OF MODERN 'MAGIC.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 January 1898

THT MYSTERIES OF MODERN * MAGIC.' Fat baok in the shadowy past, 'before tb.9 building of the pyramids, magic was a re- puted art in Egypt, for Egypt was the .cradle of magie.' The magicians of Egypt, according to the Bible ohronicle, contended 1 agairiBt Aaron, at the court of Pharoah. '?Rie Hebrew prophet 'cast down his rod 'before Pharoah and botoro hid servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharoah also called the wise men and the sorcerers : now the magicians of Egypt, they ab-o did in like manner with their enchantments. For they east down every man his rod and they be- came serpents : but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.' The late Robert Holler, prestidigateur, traveller in thc Orient, and Eoientist, once told the writer, that ho had seen this feat ; .performed in Cairo many times by the Der« . vishea. The rods aotuully were serpenta and were hypnotised to such an extent aa to become perfectly still and rigid. When thrown upon tho earth and recalled to life 'by sunbry mys...

Why not have summer time' always, with perpetual foliage?' What is the meaning of denuded branches, withered flowers, daylight fading in mid-afternoon, and winter's cola and désolation ? When you find out why the leaves fall you will have discovered one of nature's deepest Becrets why men die. Suppose wo try an easier problem. Why should Mr. William Steel have written such a sentence as this ?-" At the fall of the leaf every year 1 got into such a state thal I took no pleasure in a?iylhing."
