LORD ROBERTS' YOUTHFUL HOBBY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
LORD ROBERTS' YOUTHFUL HOBBY. When Lord Roberts was a boy, his favorite pastime was carving boats out of wood. He was quite an adept at this, and he used frequently to wager a vessel of his own manufacture to beat a boat bought by another lad. All the boats he carved (states the "Week-End") were named after some great naval hero, or after a big sea fight in which we had been victorious.
GERMANY'S FUTURE. SOME PREDICTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
GERMANY'S FUTURE. &nbsp; SOME PREDICTIONS. The "Lokalanzeiger," a Berlin paper, has inter- viewed several notabilities on Germany's future prospects. Burgomaster Kirschner says that Germany's immediate future is greatly dependent on the definite settlement of the present abso- lutely unsettled commercial policy. Until the commercial treaties are definitely arranged one way or another the present unsatisfactory state of things is not likely to be improved. President Koch, of the Reichsbank, who is ever optimistic, allows that there are no signs of improvement in the coal and iron trades, but he believes that the worst crisis has been reached. Professor Virchow hopes that 1902 will find mankind more sensible. He says he cannot un- derstand how such a state of things should be possible which permits events to happen of which Sovereigns disapprove. He instances the Transvaal war and the Man- churian treaty, which he says he knows are con- trary to the desires of King Edward and ...
Australian Loyalty. MONDAY NIGHT'S MEETING IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Australian Loyalty. MONDAY NIGHT'S MEETING IN SYDNEY. Australian loyalty to the Empire has been proved so conclusively, time after time, that it seemed superfluous to call a meeting to publicly protest it in words. Therefore Monday night's ga- thering in the Sydney Town-hall, with its bands, its banners, its orations, and its patri- otic songs, can only be regarded as an em- phatic declaration—in- tended mainly for Continental slander- ers—of the fact that Australia is still a very active partner in the Great British Em- pire. The meeting was magnificent; the great hall being packed in every nook. Naturally, this de- monstration has been approached in size and enthusiasm be- fore—when, for ex- ample, Sydney rose to protest against what it believed to be the unfair sen- tence passed upon George Dean. The Town-hall, too, held a crowd like that of Monday night— &nbsp; in 1891, when Sir George Grey, the greatest of all New Zealanders, addressed a mass meeting on manhood suffrage...
A FACT! [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A FACT. &nbsp; —♦— It was at a children's Christmas party, and Jacky, who always has a splendid appetite, ex- celled himself. He out-lasted all the others, and seemed good for another half-hour, so the hostess packed off the rest of the children into the play-room, and stayed to attend to the wants of Master Jacky herself. After two more cups of tea and several pieces of cake, Jacky showed signs of fatigue, and the hostess began to talk to him about the tableaux which were to constitute the chief feature of the evening's entertainment for the youngsters. "Freddy is going to be Bluebeard, Mary Little Red Riding Hood, Percy Bo'Peep, and Franky Little Jack Horner," said she. "What shall you be, Jacky." "Please, I shall be sick." And he was.
Corsets for Men. SOME REMARKABLE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Corsets for Men. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SOME REMARKABLE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. Some Englishmen found an unaccustomed &nbsp; Christmas gift in their Christmas stockings in &nbsp; England. Probably never before in the history &nbsp; of the English people had the prosaic masculine &nbsp; half of society been presented with a corset by &nbsp; Kris Kringle. &nbsp; Yet a reputable corset firm informed "The Ex- &nbsp; press" that some elaborate French specimens &nbsp; of corset manufacture were added to the &nbsp; mid-winter wardrobes of certain fashionable &nbsp; men. &nbsp; It was understood that those unusual gifts were &nbsp; specially ordered from France, and that they &nbsp; would bear much resemblance to the very wide &nbsp; and elastic belt. They were a little in appearance &nbsp; like unto the Empire corset worn by women— &am...
Nothing Serious. (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEW'S.") [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Nothing Serious. BY "ANYBODY." (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") The fish "story" competition still holds on. "Thomas Pepper" writes:—"I have a fish yarn that I know to be 'true,' which I think will com- pete with the one in this week's issue" (February 8). "One day I angled in the Macquarie River for some three or four hours, and at last suc- ceeded in getting a bite. I tugged and strained, but finally, with a little masterly manipulation of the line, landed—a turtle 4lb. in weight. "Disgusted with my luck, I chopped off his head, which I left upon the bank, and threw his body back into the water. "In the course of my fishing wanderings I tra- velled down stream about 12 miles, where I was absolutely astounded to see the turtle rise to the surface with his head under one of his flappers." This "De Rougemont" yarn has been shown to the office Ananias, who affirms that he is in- capable of answering it this week. It requires a greater stock of adjectives than he has at his command wit...
BIG SYNDICATE HIT. TWENTY-FIVE MILLION CONCERN TAKEN OVER BY BANKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
BIG SYNDICATE HIT. TWENTY-FIVE MILLION CONCERN TAKEN OVER BY BANKERS. A committee of Cleveland (U.S.A.) bankers has &nbsp; taken charge of the various properties of the &nbsp; Everett-Moore Syndicate, which owns or controls &nbsp; many trolly and telephone lines in Ohio and &nbsp; Michigan, and has an aggregate capitalisation of &nbsp; not less than £25,000,000. &nbsp; The committee says that tight money has pre- &nbsp; vented the syndicate from meeting its obliga- &nbsp; tions, although the syndicate is of opinion that &nbsp; it owns property to the value of several million &nbsp; dollars (upwards of a million sterling) above its &nbsp; liabilities. &nbsp; A run was started on the Dime Savings and &nbsp; Banking Company, of which the Everett-Moore &nbsp; Syndicate were directors, but all demands were &nbsp; promptly met. &nbsp;
A Voyage in Vain. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A Voyage in Vain. (BY DICK SWIVEL-EYE.) Mr. Bighat enjoyed the singular felicity of a &nbsp; family patronymic admirably adapted to his &nbsp; personal configuration. &nbsp; He was a large man with a large hat. The &nbsp; municipal candidates who secured his support &nbsp; and influence regarded his physique as a proof &nbsp; of high intelligence, while those for whom he &nbsp; firmly refused to sign nomination papers were polite enough to suggest that his head might be bone all through. As frequently happens with men of large sta- ture, Mr. Bighat's chief personal friend was a gentleman of the ap- pearance known as dap- per whose name was Pipkin, and who greatly esteemed his portly friend. It was late in the forenoon of Saturday, &nbsp; February 8, 1902, that the friends met in the city. "Hello, Bighat!" ex- claimed Pipkin joyously, "whither away?" "No," said Mr. Big- hat. "No, I shall not wither away, not even to obli...
ICEBERG SEASON. GREAT OCEAN AREA SWARMING WITH BERGS AND ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
ICEBERG SEASON. &nbsp; GREAT OCEAN AREA SWARMING &nbsp; WITH BERGS AND ISLANDS. &nbsp; A great iceberg season would seem to be well "on" in the Southern Ocean at present (says the "Morning Leader" of December 28). In view of the latest news of the Discovery, this fact is suggestive. Iceberg "terms " by the way, some times last for years. &nbsp; It seems that just now a large ocean area, the centre of which is mid-way between Anti- podes Island and Cape Horn, an area of about 10 degrees of latitude by 50 degrees of longitude, is swarming with ice islands and bergs of all sorts and conditions. In August the sailing ship Earnock fell in with the western edge of the drift, and the folk of nearly every ship that has since passed through the "area" have had an ice-tale to tell. In September the Star of New Zealand sighted an ice-island a mile in length and 600ft. above the surface of the sea, and passed many smaller islands day after day. A week afterwards ...
NEW BAILBOAD FOB AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
NEW RAILROAD FOR AFRICA. &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; An organisation entitled the Upper Congo to the Great African Lakes Company, with a capi- tal of 25,000,000f., was registered in Brussels on January 4, with the object of constructing and working 1400 kilometers of railroad in the Congo Free State. French capitalists subscribed 10,000,000f., and Belgians subscribed 15,000,000f. The Congo Free State guarantees a minimum interest of 4 per &nbsp; cent. The company secures concessions of lands, &nbsp; forests, and mines for 99 years.
TO KILL OLD HORSES PAINLESSLY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
TO KILL OLD HORSES PAINLESSLY. The deadly instrument known as "Greener's Killer," 36 of which are to be purchased by the War Office for the painless destruction of old and incapacitated horses, is the invention of the well- known gun manufacturer, Mr. W. W. Greener. Its efficacy is best proved by the fact that. he Government decision is in response to a petition of the Church Society for Promoting Kindness to Animals. The "killer" consists of a noiseless explosive apparatus resembling a short rifled barrel, which contains a small cartridge with steel-pointed bullet. At the end to a bell-shaped chamber, which deadens the sound and directs the bullet. This is placed against the head of the animal, and a tap at the opposite end with a wooden mallet drives the bullet through the brain into the spine, instantly depriving the animal of sensation. Its death is a matter of only a few moments. &nbsp; &nbsp;
CHAUNCEY DEPEW MARRIED. THREE SEPARATE CEREMONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
CHAUNCEY DEPEW MARRIED. &nbsp; THREE SEPARATE CEREMONIES. &nbsp; Republican simplicity was vindicated by the &nbsp; three distinct marriage services which have just &nbsp; united Miss May Palmer to Mr. Chauncey Depew &nbsp; (says a Nice telegram of December 28). &nbsp; The bride, who was educated in France, and has &nbsp; lived most of her life in Paris, has been installed &nbsp; for the past few days at the Hotel des Iles Bri- &nbsp; tanniques here. The bridegroom has been staying &nbsp; at the villa, in the Avenue Beaulieu, of the Comie &nbsp; do Sers, whose wife is a cousin of the American &nbsp; statesman. &nbsp; The civil marriage took place at the American &nbsp; Consulate. Mr. H. van Buren, the United States &nbsp; Consul, performed the marriage ceremony, the witnesses being the Comte de Sers, M. von Andre. Baron de Cantalause, and Mr. Gordon Bennett, Mrs. P...
TRAGIC DOG STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
TRAGIC DOG STORY. —♦— A tragic dog story is told by the "County Gen- tleman," which vouches for the facts. A young bull-terrier, left in care of a friend by an officer at the front, accompanied his temporary owner when making a call on some friends, whose few months-old infants was rolling about on the rug in front of the fire when the visitor entered. Taking no heed of the dog, which was accustomed to go everywhere with him, the visitor was shak- ing hands with his host and hostess when the dog, before any of the parties were aware of his inten- tions, picked up the child, and, giving the poor little mite a couple of shakes as he would a rat, dropped it—dead. It is needless to describe the awful sorrow that has fallen on the household; the poor father is nearly wild with grief, and the mother has had to be placed under mental care.
THE KING'S STUD. HIS MAJESTY PATRONISES THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE KING'S STUD. HIS MAJESTY PATRONISES THE &nbsp; &nbsp; TURF, &nbsp; "The King has been pleased to appoint the Lord Marcus Talbot De la Poer Beresford, M.V.O.. to be an Extra Equerry to His Majesty, and to be manager of His Majesty's thorough- bred stud."—"London Gazette." This notification in a recent "Gazette" will be welcomed by racing men all over the kingdom as a sign that the King will continue his patron- age of the turf (says the "Express"). His Majesty takes the keenest interest in rac- ing. He has many horses in training. They have been running in the name of the Duke of Devonshire during the year of mourning. When this is over, it is hoped the King's horses will run in the King's name. George I. and George II. both provided in their Civil Lists for the maintenance of 10 "running horses," and had as trainer the notorious Tegon- nel, who was succeeded by Thomas Panton. Pan- ton gave his name to Panton-street, that runs out of the Haymarket. George ...
