ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

ISLAND OP ST. THOMAS. Tho advantages of St. Thomas as a central, salutary and convenient port for the United States, pays a writer in the ' American Re- view of Reviews.' have alwayB been recog- nized by those who have had any knowledge of the matter. The island is about 18^ degrees north of the equator and thirty-six miles east of Porto Rico. It is second in size of the Danish Virgin Islands, St. Croix containing more than double its square miles. The Virgin group of islands was discovered by Columbus on his second voyage in 1493, and were ohristend by him in memory of St Ursula and her 11,000 companions whose bones are claimed still to be preserved at Cologne. Whether Columbus concluded as he felt his way among what may well have appeared to him to bo an innumerable cluster of islets, scattered over a space of about two degrees of latitude and longitude, that there was an island a piece for each of tho virgin followers of Ursula, is uncertain, but wiser tuen than Columbus feave de...

HARD WORK AND EASY WOKK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

HARD WORK AND EASY WOKK. THERE was a time very lately when Mr. Donato Arnoldi found it hard to keep up with his work. Not that there wns more to bo done than usual, but he didn't feel like wo« king at all. He waa dull. He had no edge. If be could have afforded it he would have knocked off altogether. But there's where it is. Those of us who must work when we are sharp, must keep on working when we are dull. Necessity obliges. Expenses keep on, and so ive must keep on. Dear, deur, what a thing.it would be if we were always right up to the mark-eating, sleeping, and working with a relish. We might not have money to burn even then, but we. should have some to sirve. Well, let's hear Mr. Arnoldi. "At Easter, 1893," he says, " I began to feel as if a cloud had come over roe. I was weak, low and tired. My tongue was thickly coated, and «ny .mouth kept filling with a thick, tough phlegm. I could eat fairly well, yet my food seemed to do nie no good; After eating I had a'feeling of heavi- n...

GOLD IN THE PHILIPPINES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

GOLD IN THE PHILIPPINES. Senator Teller has received a letter from a constituent in Colorado indicating that tho .philippine Islands may be found to be very rich in gold deposite. The writer says that in 1876 he travelled from Manilla to Singa- pore tfith a man who had gone from Mon- tana to tbe Island of Luzon for the purpose of investigating the reports of such wealth. The man gave him this information in con- fidence and as a return for kindness rendered him by the Senator's correspondent. 'He told me,' says this correspondent, * that the results of his investigations were far ahead of anything he had anticipated, and that the wealth of gold in that country was beyond estimating. He had gone to the Philippines with tho intention of going into mining, it the situation was promising. When ho found it was, he went to the Spanish Governor to secure permission, but this official would permit nothing of the kind. He gave as the reason for his op- position that the development of the ra...

PERSONALITIES. NAPOLEON'S PERSONALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

nOBOBAUIDlB. -Ô NAPOLEON'S PERSONALITY. The personality of Napoleon still over- shadows Europe. We seo p'ainly enough now that ho was not the champion of the principles liberated by the French Revolu- tion. If tho course of d-amocraoy, of repre- sentative government, had been regular in Franco, there would have baon no Consulate and Empire. The system which Napoleon ereoted was a personal system through which his Titanio egotism might operate. That he swept away many old abuses, that ho decreed reforms which had a constitutional, or oven a democratic tendency, was because he thought thereby to make his autooraoy more sure, fentiment in politics never governed him ; nay, he never acknowledged any prinoiple save eelf-interest. Of this he made no eeoret.

THE OLIVE KNOT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

THE OLIVE KNOT. The State University of Illinois bas issued a bulletin prepared by F. T. Bioletti, on the - disease oallod the 4 olive knot,' whioh bas doubtless been introduced into this State hy some enthusiastic seeker of now varieties of olives from Kurope.. The disease is os old up history, but nmil now we have been ex- empt from it. It is fatal and jnourable, PO far as WA now know, and the only protection is a strict quarantine. From this no one should introduce a new olive treo to his orchard without knowing all about where it comes from and what company it han been keeping. Therein very little of tho disease now in the State, tho only orohard knowu to be affected being that of A. R. Gurr, near Morced. The riiflonae, however, is baoterial, and eau bo propagated ooly by the intro- duction of the baoterium. This came into Mr Gnrr'f orohord from somewhere-where, .we are not informed ; T-erhap« it ii not known ; but it ÍH very unlikely that he gob the only ono in the State. Mr Gu...

A VENERABLE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

A VENERABLE QUEEÎ*. The Queen of Hanover is a remarkable woman, and, in spite of her eighty years, is in the best of health and spirits. Sae married at the age of twenty-five, and was a splendid helpmeet to her husband, follow- ing him oven into an exile, after tho battle of 1866, that bas laHted ever sinon. The Queen is devoted to young people and animals, and and is greatly beloved by all ber numerous children, grand-child ron. relatives, and retainers. Her favourite dog is one 'Passy,' but for oats she has an extreme dislike, and, like our own Queen Viotoria, positively ounuot bear them near her. This is no moro fad, but a true unaffected dislike, whioh I have seen again and again. In faot, one lady I knew, a member of a noble Englink family, had such a horror of a grimalkin, that she alwaya know wbeu ono was in tho same room with herself without seaiug it, and was nevir doooivod.

HE WENT TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

HE WENT TO SLEEP. Ampere, tho scientist, was so great a thinker that he forgot everything else when his thinking was going on. His simplicity of life made him an interesting oharaoter, apart from his scientific work. Probably thora never was a more absent- minded man. His wife had to keep track of his engagements for him, and often had great diffioulty in getting him to keep them when his work was on his mind. Une day he had a very important engage- ment, to go out to dinner with some publio folk and men of soionce. The engagement was for s'x o'clock, and, though he had been warned, Madame Ampere found him, when the hour had almost arrived, still toiling at bis desk. By dint of a deal of effort, she got him to leave his work, and go to his bedohambor *o dress for the dinner. He went to his room, with his thoughts Btill on his work. He took off his coat and waistcoat, and finding himself in his shirt-sleeves he imagined that I he had goDO to his room to retire, and there- upon went t...

SKETCHER. NATIONAL FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

-« NATIONAL FLOWERS. It has been suggested by some people that the American national flower should be the columbino, which grows wild in almost all parts of the Union. The name naturally suggests Columbia and Columbus. There is really a connection, between the two. Tli6 name Oolnmbus-Columbo in Italian-means dove, and the columbine receives its name , from the popular idea that it looks like a a flock of doves. Thia form grows wild in the Rooky Mountains. The front view of the flower shows a five-pointed star, a single petal ia in the shape of a horn of plenty, typioal of our resources, and the short spurred variety resembles a liberty cap. The lobes of its terminal divisions are jthirtoon, the original states, and in colour the colum- bine is either red, white or a puro blue. Louis VII of France waB tho first to use the flenr-de-lis as hie emblem. He had it represented in gold over the blue mantle of his son Philip when tho latter was crowned joint King. Tho word ia probably not fl...

SHORT STORY. FERGUSSON'S MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 July 1898

STORY. FERGUSSONS MISTAKE. THE faint moonlight streamed into the room through tho partly-drawn curtains. Upon the bed lay a man-apparently sleep- ing, for he was hreathiug heavily-the bright light from a strong reflector lamp falling fnil upon his face, so that it must have woke him, save that a handkerchief was laid lightly over it. Beside the bed-her face bidden in her hands-knelt a woman, plainly a very young woman : she was so alight in figure and contour. She knelt so lonsr, it almost seemed she, too, must bo asleep, or had lost consciousness been turnpd to stone even. But at length something roused her. It was the'whine of a dbg under the win- dow, a dismal sort of half moan half wail as for a lost master : an ominous sound enough, moat of all at that hour of the night. To the girl-for such she was-it plainly came as a warning and omen that she could not but heed. She rose from her knees and bent over, the bed. Something bright gleamed in her hand -not her wedding ring. A mome...
