BIJOU THEATRE (CREMORNE). [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
BIJOU THEATRE (CREMORNE). &nbsp; The Bijou Theatre (Cremorne) had a most successful week with "The Scamps of the City." The additions to the company of Miss Tracy Hamilton, Miss Marie Master, and Mr. Bert Leighton have proved the wisdom of the management by the nightly &nbsp; applause with which these artistes have been received. Last night, for the first time in this theatre, the full strength of the com- pany was utilised in the production of the ever-popular play of the late Dion Bouci- cault, "The Colleen Bawn." The play &nbsp; passed off successfully, and the actors and actresses were repeatedly compelled to await the subsidence of the applause which greeted their efforts. New scenery had been specially prepared for the piece by Mr. John Campbell. On Wednesday night next the company will stage "East Lynee." To- night (Sunday), the "Ticket-of-Leave Man" will be played in Mason's Hall, North Fre- mantle. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &am...
EUGENE SANDOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
Eugene Sandow specially notifies the public that there is some misunderstanding respecting the use of his physical culture appliances. In an advertisement in another column he describes how these appliances should be used, and states that all desirous of improving their physique should read his book, "Strength and How to Obtain it."
RACK RAILWAYS. FOR HILLY COUNTRY. WHERE THEY WORK AND HOW THEY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
WHERE THEY WORK AND HOW THEY WORK. &nbsp; The wonders achieved by railway engineers in the direction of ascending from the plains to tablelands, 5,000ft. above, crossing mountain ranges that have defied surveyors when seeking a track for modern loco- motives, have only been achieved by the newest methods. Of those one is the rack railway. It offers an excel- lent means of overcoming steep in- clines which are beyond the limits of adhesion, but necessarily the rate of travelling is much lower than with the ordinary system. By means of the rack, mountains are climbed and grades overcome that could not be faced by the most powerful locomotives. Rack railway lines are at work—true only of light traffic—on a grade of 1 in 4, but for general commercial use, capable of dealing with the heavy traffic of an average line, 1 in 10 or 12 THE ART RACK IN ELEVATION AND &nbsp; &nbsp; CROSS-SECTION. has been proved to be a successful or economical grade. Some idea of what th...
EIGHT FEET LONG. A RECORD SORE THROAT AND HOW IT WAS CURED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
A RECORD SORE THROAT AND HOW IT WAS CURED. We have heard of record miles and half-miles, record voyages by steam- ships, and but recently of record pigeon-eating (says a writer in the "Golden Penny"). But never until now have we heard of a record sore &nbsp; throat. It would hardly be correct to say that any previous record had been For Her Sore Throat: &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A Flannel Bandage 20ft. Long. ''reduced" in this case, however, for the sore throat in question was 8ft. long. It belonged to a giraffe named &nbsp; Nellie, who is one of the attractions of a travelling circus company. A Long-Distance Cough. Nellie, through an unavoidable ac- cident, caught cold during the recent changeable weather, and, always a very reserved animal, she did nothing at first to call attention to her sufferings. Before her physicians and keepers realized that anything had happened to her, she was suffering from a...
FATHER OF THE BRITISH FLEET. ADMIRAL SIR HENRY KEPPEL, G.C.B. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
Although 92, Sir Henry Keppel is still active, for the sketch of him re- produced here was taken at the palance of the Sultan of Johore a month or two ago. The "Father of the Navy" has had a stirring career and lived under no less than four Sovereigns. He was a younger son of the Earl of Abermarle, and was born on June 14, 1809. In those days officers entered the navy at an &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Newest Portrait of Admiral Keppel, the Father of the British Navy early age, for young Keppel was lieutenant when 20 and commander four years later. In 1834-35 he was serving on the south coast of Spain during the Civil War in that unhappy country. Afterwards he smelt powder in the Chinese War, and went right through the Crimean War, having command...
COMBINATION REVOLVER AND DARK LANTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The revolver ahown in the illustration would be of inestimable value in &nbsp; &nbsp; case of an emergency at night. Its distinguishing feature lies in the small &nbsp; incandescent lamp situated in a reflector to be placed immediately below the revolver barrel. A battery in the handle of the revolver may be electrically connected with the lamp by a slight pressure of the trigger. &nbsp; &nbsp;
MECHANICAL FLYING BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
MECHANICAL FLYING BIRD. While toys are becoming scientific machines, the newest flying machine is a bird made of pasteboard. It has a propeller attached to it, and ascends of its own accord into the air when one pulls a cord wound around the stick, which energises the propeller. Up it flies, leaving the handle behind, the angles of the propeller vanes giving the tendency to mount upward. But when it comes down, the bird's wings open, and, retarding its descent, cause it to fall gently, and with a movement like that of a real feathered creature.
A New African Animal: The Okapi. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
A New African Animal: The Okapi. &nbsp; This curions animal, recently discovered in Central Africa, seems allied both to the Giraffe and the Zebra, but is declared by the scientists to be a distinct species, not unlike the fossil Helladotherium, of Greece. A specimen of the Okapi, the first to arrive in Europ, will shortly be on view at the Natural History Museum, South Kensington.

PREHISTORIC HAN. RECENT DISCOVERIES AT CRIMALDI. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
PREHISTORIC MAN. RECENT DISCOVERIES AT GRIMALDI. An absorbing interest has always been taken, not only by scientific men, but also by the general public, in the question of the antiquity of man. This latest find of human fossils is that made in the caves of Grimaldi, in the course of explorations inaugurated by the Prince of Monaco. Skeletons have been discovered in the cavern over- laid by the deposits which accumulate in the grottos. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; As regards their age, Dr. Verneau, of Paris, regards them as belonging to the Paliolithic epoch—that is, to the ancient stone period—when man made 1.

RAILWAY SIGNALLING IN FRANCE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
RAILWAY SIGNALLING IN FRANCE &nbsp; In "The World's News" of May 10, mention was made of the intvention of a French engineer (M. Marin) having for its object the prevention of railway accidents. The apparatus, which is called the "avertisseur," and which is illustrated herewith, has the merit of being cheap and effective. The apparatus consists of two parts, &nbsp; one, the "aiguille," fixed between the rails and connected with the signal; the other forming part of the locomo- tive. The "aiguille" is a long, stout &nbsp; piece of metal moving on a pivot. When the signal shows that the line is clear, this needle is practically parallel with the rails, and is unaf- fected by trains passing over it. When the signal shows that the line &nbsp; is blocked, it is slightly inclined, so that, on the locomotive, passing, it comes in contact with the second part of the "avertisseur"—a kind of cranked lever which projects underneath the locomotive and is connecte...
AN OBJECT LESSON IN HEAVY ORDNANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
At the very completely equipped armory of the 13th Regiment in Brooklyn, in addition to three full- sized models (and working models at &nbsp; that) of heavy sea coast artillery, &nbsp; there is a stand of three large, full- &nbsp; sized model sections of the principal &nbsp; sea coast guns, namely, 8in., 10in., and &nbsp; 12in. The models are built of wood, and they are carefully lined and painted, so as to represent the appear- &nbsp; ance of sections cut from actual built- up steel guns. They represent the breech half of the gun, from a few feet forward of the trunnion ring to the breech. They are represented with the breech-lock closed and locked. The breech plug is an exact &nbsp; model, and shows the mushroom head and obturating material which serves, &nbsp; under the pressure of the powder, to &nbsp; completely seal the breech and prevent &nbsp; the rearward escape of gases. The powder chamber of ...

OUR SUNDAY SERIAL &nbsp; &nbsp; THE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MALLISON MYSTERY. BY T. W. HANSHEW. BOOK THE SECOND. AN ENGLISH DRAMA. [COPYRIGHT.] &nbsp; CHAPTER V. A DAUGHTER OF VAGABONDIA. "Speak Cynthia, won't you give &nbsp; &nbsp; me any hope, dear? Won't &nbsp; you try to love me? I give so much, lass, that a very little—ever so little —will do me in return. Just try to love me dear; only TRY." "I can't, Jock. What's the use of trying when it isn't in me? Ask me to be to you what your sisters are, and I'll say yes, gladly, but more than that—I can't do it, Jock; I can't— never." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It is a pretty scene, wanting in nothing to delight the eye of an artist or to stir the senses of a poet. Over- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; head, the bright moon pouring down a &nbsp; sheet of luminous liquid splendor that glances along th...
CHAPTER VI/ AS IN A LOOKING-GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
CHAPTER VL AS IN A LOOKING-GLASS. It was half-past 10 by all the reli- able clocks and watches at Thetford Towers, and the pleasant evening had reached its pleasantest point. &nbsp; In a sort of alcove at the far end of the drawing-room Lord Beltran and one of the gentlemen were carrying on an animated political discussion, with Lady Delamere lingering near (and just interested enough in the conver- sation to give others who were NOT an opportunity for "those soft passages which run between the bars and make the music doubly sweet") on a settee far removed from all the rest. Lady Una Charlock was carrying on a mild flirtation with Sir Charles Houghton. In the window seat at tbe other end of the room, the Honorable Diana Morford was doing the same thing with somebody else ; at the piano Miss Lynton was softly playing some tender murmuring melody, which interfered with nobody, and gave ample oppor- tunity for chattering with Captain Fitzroy, who hadn't turned a page of music f...

TWO LITERARY DISCOVERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
TWO LITERARY DISCOVERIES. While we are waiting for the "new novel by John Milton, auther of 'Para- dise Lost' and other poems," it may be of interest, to remember that within the last two or three years two other &nbsp; "literary discovories" have been made. One of these was an unpublished letter from Carlyle, which was accidentally found in a cellar in the Edinburge publishing house of Messrs. Chambers; and about the same time the Clerk of Session at Edinburgh quite by chance came across the original certificate of residence necessary of Shelley's mar- riage with Harriet Westbrook. This interesting document, which has hitherto been unknown, was found buried in the City Archives. The Carlyle letter was addressed to Mrs. Begg, a sister of Robert Burns, in whose behalf Carlyle and Lord Hough- ton appealed to the Government for a pension. &nbsp;
KRAKATOA. BIGGEST EXPLOSION ON RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
&nbsp; KRAKATOA BIGGEST EXPLOSION ON RECORD. The report of the Krakatoa eruption and subsequent phenomena which was &nbsp; issued by the Royal Society is prob- bably the most complete record which exists of any eruption which has oc- curred in recent years or in bygone ages. The eruption at Krakatoa oc- curred on Auguest 26th-27th, 1883, and the Royal Society's detailed report of the subject was published in 1888. The island of Krakatoa is situated in Sunda Strait, about midway &nbsp; Java and Sumatra. An Island Wiped Out. The geological section of the report was written by Professer Judd, who described the convulsion as one which, in its destructive results to life and property, and in the startling character of the world-wide effects to which it gave rise, is perhaps without a parallel in historic times. The towns and vil- lages along the shores of the Sunda Strait were, during the crisis of the eruption, enveloped in a terrible dark- ness, which lasted for...
STORY OF A MANCHESTER COINER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
STORY OF A MANCHESTER COINER. As strange as many an incident in fiction is the sensational story from Manchester regarding the arrest of a coinee. Three local detectives re- cently, arrented Edward Heaviside, a notorious old coiner, and to judge from his part record a very many-sided criminal. Heaviside, who was a thick- set fellow with a cork leg, and about 55 years of age, had the reputation of being one of the most skilful coiners in the country. In February, 1895, he was sentenced to five years' penal servitude for having coining imple- ments in his possession, and was liberated in May, 1900. He again forfeited his liberty for attempting to &nbsp; shoot his wife, but was once more allowed Out on Ticket-of-leave. &nbsp; In January it was known to the police that he had taken an oath never to do another term of penal servitude. &nbsp; were equally cognisant of his despe- rate character, and of the fact that he was always prepared for an emer- gency with loa...
HOW THE FRENCH TEACH HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 July 1902
HOW THE FRENCH TEACH HISTORY.\\ "We have known for a long time," says the "Boulogne and North of France Times," "that there has been in Boulogne and elsewhere in France a series of copy-books contain- ing gaudy-colored pictures, depicting British soldiers suffering all manner of ignominious defeats at the hands of the Boers," and it goes on to point out that the preceptors who permit such insidious literature to remaibn in the hands of the young incur a grace responsibility from which the ordinary man would shrink. A literal transla- tion of one of the copy-book gems is as follows:—"The English Army, which &nbsp; at the present moment is fighting the peasants of the Transvaal, is not a national army like that of France. &nbsp; &nbsp; Kidnapping is the sole method of re- cruiting employed by our neighbors across the Channel. It is chiefly in London, at Trafalgar-place, where this abominable white slave trade is carried on. Vagabonds, beggars, the scum of great...
