UGANDA'S NEW ERA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

UGANDA'S NEW ERA. The laying of rails of the Uganda Railway has been completed to the Victoria Nyanza, the rail-head reaching the shore of the lake. The completion of the construction of the Uganda railway marks an epoch in the de- velopment of British East Africa. A survey for the railway was made in 1892, and at the end of 1895 the work was begun. The total length of the line is 560 miles, and the gauge is one metre, a fraction over 39 inches. The construction of the line has progressed more rapidly than anticipated, for it was not expected that it would be laid before the end of next March. The cost of the railway is esti-   mated at five and a quarter millions.   With the progress of the railway the trade   of the country has been advanced, and now that   the Great Lake has been tapped it is expected   that the railway will be the high road for Central   African traffic.

WATER IN THE DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

WATER IN THE DESERT.   Oil borers at Engle, New Mexico, have struck   an artesian well at a depth of 200 feet, which   swept 1000 gallons per hour through a two-inch   hole. Engle is the heart of the "Journey of Death   Desert," which is one of the most arid regions   known, and the strike of water will prove far   more valuable than an oil gusher.   During the Mexican war, out of 165 soldiers   who attempted to cross the desert all but 14   perished. Great excitement has been created   by the strike.

DESPERATE STUDENTS' DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

DESPERATE STUDENTS' DUEL. A German student fought a duel with a Slav   student, at Munich, the weapons being heavy   cavalry swords. The first set-to resulted in no   wounds being inflicted, and the second round   was stopped by the seconds calling out "Stop!" Then a most unexpected incident occurred. The Slav, in a fit of uncontrollable fury, brought his sabre down on his opponent, and cut him down the chest. The German replied by making a wild blow at the Slav, and before the seconds could step in he managed to cleave his skull.   Both students are now recovering from their   wounds.

CHAMPION CHESS PLAYER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

  CHAMPION CHESS PLAYER.   Dr. Lasker, the champion chess player of the world, has been giving an exhibition of his re- markable skill before the members of the Cercle Philidor, at their headquarters, on the Boule- vard de Strasbourg, Paris. He was matched against 40 of the best players of the club, including a lady, the wife of a well- known Paris doctor. On the celebrated chess player entering the room, this lady was heard to refer to his rather weakly appearance, and to announce her intention of checkmating him in 10 moves. Needless to say, however, she soon found out her mistake, and was, in fact, one of the first to declare herself beaten. This was the fate of 36 out of the 40 players. Dr. Lasker lost three games, and one was a draw. Dr. Lasker has just made a wager at the club that he will play 20 simultaneous games blind- folded, a feat which has not yet been accom- plished.

"REMAINDERS." AN INTERESTING PHASE OF THE PUBLISHING TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

"REMAINDERS." AN INTERESTING PHASE OF THE PUBLISHING TRADE. Many years ago, before publishers were as keen   business men as they are nowadays, they pre-   ferred to burn the books the public refused to   buy rather than sell them at a reduced price.   But the modern publisher has changed all that.   He actually prints, if he is especially enterpris-   ing (says "Literature"), more copies of a work   than he thinks people will purchase at its origi-   nal price, with a view to the appearance of the   "remainder" in the reduced catalogue. Even the   man who clings to old traditions, and hates the   sight of "reduced to 2s 9d," consoles himself   with the reflection "that they all do it."   A certain bookseller named James Lackington,   who flourished more than a hundred years ago,   was the f...

Cancer Research. A RECENT VIEW. DR. ANDREW WILSON IN THE "CHRONICLE." [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

Cancer Research. A RECENT VIEW. —♦— DR. ANDREW WILSON IN THE "CHRONICLE."   The obvious and widespread interest with which the subject of cancer and all that concerns it is regarded by the public, renders it unnecessary for me to offer any excuse for alluding again to this topic. Every attempt even to suggest the cause or causes of this ailment may be com- mended, although, unfortunately, many of the explanations offered present themselves as unveri- fied ideas, and nothing more.   The search after the cause of an ailment im- plies the gathering of facts, the laborious assort- ment of the facts, the careful relating of them to the circumstances under which the disease is manifested, and finally the search by experi- ment and otherwise for verification of the views to which the investigations appear to lead. It is not sufficient, for instance, for anybody to suggest that increase in the use of mineral waters is a cause of cancer. To substantiate this view (e...

LINKS WITH THE PAST. THE FIRST ENGLISH SUNDAY SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

LINKS WITH THE PAST. THE FIRST ENGLISH SUNDAY   SCHOOL.   Suaday schools, that now form such a promi- nent feature of English religious life, had their beginning in a very small way. The system was first introduced in Milan in 1680 by Cardinal Borromeo, whose example was followed about a century later by the Rev. David Blair, at Brechin, who introduced a system of instruction to children in his church. The first Sunday school to be properly organised was, however, not founded until the year 1780, when Robert Raikes. an eminent printer, of Gloucester, con-   jointly with the Rev. Robert Stock, started a   THE FIRST SUNDAY SCHOOL.   Sunday school in the quaint little dwelling of     which we give a sketch. The house is close   to Gloucester Cathedral, and may be looked upon   as the parent dwelling of all Sunday schools in   the United Kingdom. In this hous...

MY LITTLE O. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

MY LITTLE O.   When I was turning thirty years I used to comb my hair, And heave a heavy sigh to note   The thinness growing there. I held my mirror up to view, As you have done, I know, That spot appearing in the back Just like A little o. I contemplate with sinking heart The work of future years, For Time, with his relentless scythe, Is mowing towards my ears. All hope is lost, there's naught to do But sit and let it go, Oh, Time, reverse your steps and stop The growing Of my o. But what's the use of worrying, We're many, hand in hand, And hairs are like the hour-glass, Its ever flailing sand; And sooth! of all my jolly friends The jolllest I know Are those who have the roundest and The largest Kind of—O.

A NOVEL TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

A NOVEL TRICK. Here is a novel trick and one which never fails   to afford much entertainment at an evening party.   Two persons kneel on the ground at a distance   of about 3ft. from each other, and to each is   given a candle, of which one should be lighted. The right or left foot of each, as the case may be, is then held by his free hand, the result being that the entire weight of the body will rest on the other knee. The person holding the un- lighted candle must then try to light it at the other one. That this is no easy task can very easily be ascertained.

TELEGRAPHING 24,000 WORDS AN HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

TELEGRAPHING 24,000 WORDS AN HOUR. The French postal authorities have just car- ried out a series of highly successful experiments with the remarkable invention of M. Menardier, technical instructor at the Ecole Politichnique, and which will revolutionise the telegraphic ser- vice. M. Menardier has discovered a means by which no fewer than 24,000 words an hour can be despatched on a single wire by the employment of sound vibration. Twelve operators were at work on the wire at the same time, and the lines from Paris to Bordeaux were selected for the ex- periment. The most remarkable part of the in- vention is that while thousands of words are being despatched by the Menardier system, the same wire can be used simultaneously for the despatch of telegrams by the ordinary system at present in use. M. Menardier employs a series of diapasons for the transmission of his messages, which are gathered at the other end and started out, as it were, by an equal number of microtele- pbonic receiv...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) The Great Unknown. A STORY OF THE SOUTH SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) The Great Unknown. A STORY OF THE SOUTH SEAS. —♦— By HERBERT RUSSELL (Author of "The Longshoreman," etc.) Whenever we think of eternity, our fancy na- turally takes flight into space. Distance seems inseparable from our ideas of futurity. Thus Heaven is always overhead, let the hour be what it will. The mystery of the blue void, being past human comprehension, fits in well with our shape- less fancies of that which also passes our under- standing. And yet who shall say that the imme- morial habit of disassociating thoughts of the future with materialistic conceptions is correct? It is easy to trace the instinctive connection be- tween the idea of what we don't know, and what we can't see; and so men turn their mental vision upon the blankness of space when they seek to locate those illusive dreams of Paradise that flit through their brains. But how do we know what lies, not over our heads, but under our feet? "Who can tell what is   held in the he...

BRIDAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 8 February 1902

With the amount of fine silk and real lace that is insisted on for underclothing, the modern trousseau is indeed a costly affair. The silken jupons, with their frou-frou of frills, are well nigh as pretty as skirts. The artistic tea-gowns, which are included as necessary items of the bride's wardrobe, are perhaps the most fascinating of all her home dresses. They have surely reached perfection. BRIDAL ITEMS.
