AT WAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

AT WAKING. Oft have I awakened at the break of day, And from my "window looking forth have found All dim and strange the long-familiar ground; But soon I saw the mist glide slow away And leave the bills in wonted green array; While from the stream-sides and the groves around Bose many a pensive, day-entreaiing sound, And in the fields yoking life began to play. Will it be even so"when first we wake Beyond the night in which are merged all nights The soul sleep-lieavy and forlorn will ache. Deeming herself 'mid alien sounds and sights: Ajirl then the gradual days will comfort break Along the old depths of being, the old heights ? -Edit!i Thompson, in the Cosmopolitan.

POETRY. THE HOUSE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

POETRY. . TEE HOUSE BEAUTIFUL,. A naked house, a naked moor, A shivering pool before the door, A garden bare of flowers and fruit And ^poplars at the garden, foot; Such is the place that I live in, Bleat -without and bare -within.; Yet shall your ragged moor receive The incomparable pomp of eve, And the cold glories of the dawn-? Behind your shivering trees.be draw; And when the '«pndifrom place to place Doth the unmoored'eloud galleons chase Your garden gloom and gleam again, "With leaping sun, with glancing rain. " Here^shall the "wizard moon ascend The heavens, in the crimson end Of day's declining splendor; here The aimy of the stars appear. The .neighbor hollows, dry or -wet, Spring shall with tender Sowers beset; And oft the momiiig.muser see Larks rising from the broomy lea. And every fairy wheel and thread Of cobweb, dew bediamocded-f "When daisies go, shall winter time Silver the simple grass with rime; Autumnal frosts enchant the pool And make the cart-ruts beautiful; .

The Barrier Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

The Barrier Trade. The Port Pitie Advocate has the following in reference to a leader in the"S. A .Hegister on theabove subject-The Register accused Mr Threadgold of not being strictly accurate when he ttrged that the deputation wanted the Commissioner to "do nothing" in stead of doing a lot. Mr Threadgold, we maintain, was strictly correct in his way of putting the matter. The State should do nothing to divert, but only to render easy, the flow of traffic to its natural outlet. A clumsy attempt is made by the Register to upset the reasoning of Mr Threadgold's "leave well alone" policy. It points out that the '?rolling stock has to be increased; the line from Petersburg to Cockburn has to be strengthened, and an additional £10,000 be yond the balance in hand is to be devoted to the further deepening of Port Pirie." What ever is the Begister thinking about? These are not facta which recoil against Port Pirie The above is expenditure which has to be in curred in any event, even if the...

A Book of Quacks. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

A Book of Quacks. The great 'gift of healing' has ever been the one science above all other, which has attracted and interested most followers and devotees, and to trace the slow progress of the science of medicine through the ages' since the ancients first'practised it would be a most interesting and instructive study. To a certain extent Mr. G. Everitt does in his entertaining new book, ' Doctors and Doctors" (Swann Sonnenschein), and the outline which he traces of the progress of medicine shows very clearly how great the struggle has been before the priest-physician fand lie wonder-worker were suppressed, and befose true science had gained supremacy over the dark arts which the masses patronised e^en to a very recent date. But even after the day of the ladies and gentle men of the 'mystery' had gone by, the science of medicine remained, until very recent days, in a state of imperfection which it is terrible to contemplate. Well may Mr. Everitt count those of our forefathers wiho ...

ANOTHER SHOW. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

ANOTHER SHOW, TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Noticing in your last issue * para graph relating to the above subject and ask ing whether the enterprising people of Peters burg intended to promulgate another gigantic failure in the shape of.au Agricultural Show, I take this opportunity of giving the Com mittee of the last show a chance to exorcise the spectres which stalk about our town in the shape of sundry rumours, which, if true would indicate very considerable laxity on the part of the committee and officers, One of the aforesaid rumors is to the effect that no balance sheet of the affair has yet, even after the lapse of nine months, been presented, and that the late Committee are unwilling to broach the subject with their Secretary lest that officer should unfold to their dread gaze a mighty array of debts unpaid,whilst he,for his pact,religiously abstains from taking any steps that would tend towards a settlement, and preserves in regard to the whole matter, a majestic, im perturbable sil...

Tea And Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Tea And [Tectli. A correspondent of the British Medical Journal (Surgeon W. T. Black) makes the following interesting remarks on the injurious effect of tea on the teeth:-Some years since, when on duty at recruiting stations in the North of England, I took observation on th great amount of disease and loss of the teeth existing amongst the class of men offering themselves. It became a cause of rejection of itself in great numbers. As far as my in-/ qairies went I was led to trace it to the excessive tea-drinking indulged in by the working classes in the manufacturing towns, and went on all through the day, whether with food or not. In fact, instead of five o'clock tea being the invention of the upper classes, it was found to exist to an injurious extent in the working classes long before that time. Tea seems to have a peculiar tendency to cause hypersemia in the tooth sacs, leading to inflammation and, eventually, abscess of the fang, with, of course, dentralgia at every stage. "Whe...

Their Russian Majesties. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Tiieir Russian Majesties. Empress Dagmar is petite and slender, with soft dark eyes, brown hair, nose slightly re trousse, red lips, and a firesli, youthful appear ance-in fact, I was amazed at the girlishness of her face and figure and charmed with her tranquil simplicity and the gentleness of her manners. She is one of those women of whom one would say at once that she was eminently womanly and lovable. She was dressed in palest yellow, the front of her gown of satin embroidered in white jet, the train not very long, of spangled tulle and wreaths of crushed roses at the side. She wore a high diamond coronet and a blue ribbon order across the breast; her neck and shoulders fairly glistened with diamonds, whose size and brilliancy were extraordinary; marvellous gems also sparkled here and there amid the loopings of her gown. The long decollete bodices are still worn in Russia ' off the shoulders,' as the feminine phrase is. The Emperor was in scarlet uniform and high boots. He is ve...

Bismarck's Habits. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Bismarck's Habits. I had an exceedingly interesting talk to-day with, a gentleman whom I am permitted to describe as a member of Prince Bismarck's household, about the daily life and personal characteristics of the Chancellor. The inter view has been revised and approved. It is authentic in every detail. .The Chancellor,' my informant said, ( sleeps from six to eight hours, and rises very early in the morning. He lies in a small, plain military bed of the pattern used in army camps. The mattress is almost as hard as a board, and the covering at this time of the year consists of a sheet and a woollen blanket. Many young men would find it next to impossible to sleep on such a couch. It is not true, as often reported in the newspapers, that the Prince eats only one meal a day, and that that meal is prodigious. He eats a light breakfast, a substantial dinner at noon, and takes a biscuit and a single glass of wine before turning in at night. The Prince's Doctor Professor Schwenninger, re...

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

POPULAR SCIENCE. ft Scientists say that there is no plant that does not serve as food for some animal, btn^ the only article used as food from the mineral kingdom is common salt. The eminent French scientist, Garcin, has found that inhalation of air containing a small amount of hydrofluoric gas has a remarkably good effect on consumptives. A writer in the St. Xiouis Globe is looking hopefully forward to the time when the walls, ceilings, and floors of our dwellings will be of malleable glass, as a period when approxi mate cleanliness will be possible. There is something new every day. A photographer in New York has discovered the art of photographing on metal. You can have your wife's picture on the inside of your watch, your twins on your sleeve buttons, &c. A wineglassfol of hot water taken just before each meal acts sedatively on the stomach, and removes any excess of mucus which may have deposited itself upon its walls, and which, from its alkalinity, neu tralizes the so...

King Oscar at the Vatican. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

King Oscar atltlie Vatican. The Italian papers are full of gossip abont the King of Sweden's visit to Rome. His simplicity took all the courtiers by surprise. King Humbert put four State carriages at his disposal-King Oscar only used them once. "Fn« experiences at the Vatican have been in a way unparalleled. He is the first crowned head whom Leo XIII. has received. Papal etiquette lays down that if a king on arriving at Rome does not visit the Vatican before the Quirinal he will not be received by the Holy Father. The rule is relaxed in the case of Protestants; but if the King of Sweden had csme to the Vatican in one of King Humbert's State carriages his reception might have been quite different. As it was it has furnished a new precedent, not so much for the reception by the Pope, as by his guest. The King of Sweden kissed the Pontiff on both cheeks. Such a salute was quite irregular. Long usage had. established the fashion of merely Trigging- the hand. In the case of Pio Nono it w...

The Typo Superseded. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

TlieTypo Superseded. A New York syndicate of publishers has made a three years' contract with a company controlling a process for reproducing Euro pean books for all that they can do in that time, and the company is fitting up an expen sive plant for the carrying out of the work at 18 Reade-streejj, New York. No other work is to be done during that time for any- person^ other than those belonging to the syndicate, and it is understood that if the publishers had had their way about it, they would have made the contract for ten years instead of three. It is asserted that fac-simile plates, ready for printing, can be made by the company at a cost of three and one-quarter cents a square inch, and could be profitably furnished as low as one cent a square inch. One of the com pany, Mr. Penfold, says: The amount of matter that a compositor would charge six dollars for setting, we can furnish, blocked and ready for the press, at a profit, for fifty cents.' The process of the Hollis Phototyp...

Curiosities of Cost. A PIANO THAT COST $46,000-$950,000 DIAMOND NECKLACES—A $47,000 SIDEBOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Curiosities of Cost. A PIA2T0 TIT AT COST §4:6,000-§950,000 DIAMOND NECKLACES-A §47,000 SIDEBOAED. Cost is, of course, a very unsafe measure value in many instances, and yet there is a not unnatural curiosity on the part of the general public to know the mere money estimation in which certain more or less beautiful articles are held. Sere are a few somewhat remark able examples of lavish expenditure: The highest-priced piano in America is owned by H. G. Marquand of this city. The works were made by Messrs. Steinway and Sons, and the case, which was built in London was designed and painted by Alma Tadema. It cost §46,000. Sir Donald Smith of Montreal, is the owner of the costliest piano ever made in this country. It is also a Steinway, and the case was made by Pottier and Stymus. It cost, when landed in Montreal, §27,000. The most expensive sideboard ever made in the United States is owned by Judge Harry E. Packer of Manch Chunk, Penn. It eoyers the whole side of a room, and was buil...

Vongala Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Vongala Jotlln^s. (BY I coBKisroiroiHi.) jMLaay years of deep, high and wide research, have I devoted to the attempt to discover »thoroughly reliable record as to who was the institutor of proxies. It is so sweetly pleasant to do some things by proxy. As an infant how nice to find the inevitable pin sticking into somebody else! As' a boy, how exhilarating to consume green goose berries and then know that your brother has the usual pain in the usual locality. When you arrive at young-manhood and desire to marry someone, and do so by proxy-because she preferred the other fellow-is it not joyous to learn that the angel has developed into a termagant. Later in life one pays his just debts by proxy-the insolvent laws acting for you. Of course you lay aside your ponies, piano, etc., and retain them in souvenance of your proxy. Some people carry the proxy system much too far. They are kind, benevolent, in telligent, pious, honest and good-all by proxy-that is they never do it themselves. N...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

PERSONALITIES. The Prince of Wales, if he has won money on a race, tilts his hat over his eyebrows, and talks rapidly to any one who may be with him. If he has lost, he takes his hat off, wipes his forehead with his handkerchief, and maintains a severe silence. Eugenie, ex-Empress, is said to have de veloped idiosnycrasies, beside being a reclase. One is a tendency to Spiritualism, and a belief that she can commune with her dead Prince Imperial. It is well understood that she in tends to make Princess Beatrice of England her heiress. Prince Henry of Germany is one of the vainest of mortals. He has had 700 different photographs of himself taken. He ought to make it 1,000 anyway. Mme. Victoria, who is known all over the continent as " the strongest woman in the world," and is sometimes spoken of as the "female Hercules," is of medium height, with a girlish figure, and nothing herculean-look ing about her. Yet she readily lifts one thousand pounds. Her strength is wholly the result of ...

Victor Hugo's Manuscripts and drawings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

Victor Hugo's Manuscripts and draw ings. The exhibition of Victor Hugo's manu scripts and dra-yings was opened the other day to the Press in Paris, and excited among its representatives the keenest interest. The manuscripts are bound in strong plain binding, with prefatory and introductory notes and explanations in the author's handwriting. There is much in the ex hibition (says the Daily News correspondent) reminding one of Gustave Dore. If Victor Hugo had devoted himself to pictorial art he would, perhaps, have eclipsed every one past speciality. TTi« caricatures are scarcely ever humorous, but often bitter. He was terribly in earnest and angry whenever he caricatured. His series of 'Castles in the Air' (Chateaux en Espagne), being pictures of houses in which he would have lived had his pockets been as rich in gold as his brain was in ideas, is very interesting. When he was in Guernsey he often found relief from dulness in carving and painting panels for the parlour of Mdme. Drouh...

QUESTIONABLE AMUSEMENTS TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 July 1888

QUESTIONABLE AMUSEMENTS TO THIS EDITOR. SIB.-As a rule I keep away from chapels, Wesleyan in particular, rather than sit and hear the preacher condemn and call hard names to those who do not happen to think aa he does; therefore I did not hear Mr Blacket's discourse against Theatre-going, Horse-racing, and Dancing, but 1 heard of it, also that the same discourse wasdelirered at Coglin. Now can it be right, Mr Editor, that any one should be allowed to travel about the country imputing motives, misre presenting facts, and slandering (by implica tion) the characters of those who attend the placed condemned by Mr Blncket. For my own part I appreciate good acting, and good singing, especially when the two are combined, as in opera. Dancing I also enjoy, both as a pleasure and and an exercise Horse-racing 1 do not care a rap about, in fact would not go 20 yards to see one, yet I do not run it down oil that account, and can quite understand other people's appreciation of it, beiieviag that...
