ONE MAN ONE BILLET. SOME CIVIL SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

ONE MAN ONE BILLET. SOME CIVIL SERVANTS. Up till recently we were of opinion the   civil servants in Western Australia were a   down-trodden class, the only redeeming fea- ture about them being that they could wear a frock coat faultlessly and do the goose- step in rhythmical cadence on State occa- sions. We imagined in our ignorance that their munificent salary compared with the work they do kept them in the opulent lap of luxury in which they appear to exist. We fondly supposed that their position was suf- ficient to uphold the style they assume. But we find we have been wrong in our as-   sumptions, and the only conclusion we can   now come to is that the civil servant has so much time on his hands that he can take on a half-dozen or more jobs, while his fellow- man in the same profession but without the   same lucrative employment has to sit down and starve, or else turn   Bubonic Plague Rat-Catcher or...

THE WAR! [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

THE WAR! What is more annoying than to set out on an expedition to annihilate a foe and to have to return without even seeing it? The   members of our last contingent experienced this bitter disappointment, though many of them have brought hack a foe of a different nature. Private S. Dobson, who has just returned from South Africa, contracted a     severe chill during the voyage. He obtained a bottle of Cochin's Syrup of Eucalyptus and Wild Cherry from Mr. S. Hymns' Pharmacy, Hay-street, and informs us that it is an excellent cough remedy, and recom- mends it to others. Sold everywhere. One shilling per bottle. Stutterer, to chemist : "Give, give, give m-m-m-me a bot-bot-bottle o-o-o-of D-Do Dox-Doxo?' Chemist : "Yes, sir, with pleasure. We always like selling an article that does what it is stated to do." Stutterer: "Do-do-does Do-Do-Dox" Chemist (hurriedly): "Yes, sir; DOXO does that every time." Prompt attention, civility, cleanliness, and t...

STILL A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

STILL A CHANCE. Notwithstanding the good sale last Satur-   day and the big demand for land suitable for vegetables, garden, and orchard pur- poses, also for piggeries and poultry farms, we have still a few good blocks left in the Jubilee Estate and Woodlupine Park Estate, close to Woodlupine station, at from £5 to £10 per acre, on one, two, or three years' terms. These estates are well situated, being close to Perth, close to a station, and approached by two good main roads from Perth. There is nothing like it, in fact, for value or quality, as the land will grow any- thing. Get a plan, and inspect. There are plentv of trains, Sunday and every other day. T.

STRANGE SECRETS OF THE HUMAN MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

STRANGE SECRETS OF THE HUMAN MACHINE. Few of us, perhaps, would like to     parade our knowledge of phy-     siology, and fewer still have any idea of the vast quantities of blood, oxygen, carbonic acid gas, etc., dealt with by   the different organs in the course of a   few hours.   While you have been reading these   wods about 16 tumblers of blood have Every Meal you Eat Traverses a Journey During its Digestion and Assimilation of about Five Times   the Height of the Haman Body.   been passed through the heart. For every time the heart beats, a small tumblerful of impure blood is des- patched from one of the chambers of the heart lungwards to be purified ; at the same time another tumblerful of puri- fied blood leaves the heart to speed through the system. All that in one beat. And as the heart beats about 72 times a minute It has been Calculated that ...

LOADED AS USUAL! A NARROW SHAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

LOADED AS USUAL ! A HARROW SHAVE. The criminal folly of handling fire- arms without knowing whether they are loaded or not is well illustrated by the following singular and authentic anecdote : Some 50 years ago Roger, a cele- brated tenor, gave a supper at which Berlioz was present, and also the musi- cal critic Fiorentino. In the early hours of the morning Fiorentino got up "to stretch his legs," as he said, and strayed into the next room, where there was an interesting collection of firearms. In a few minutes he came back carrying a gun, and in the spirit of mischief began to point it about in the most reckless manner. Finally he turned it upon Berlioz. "I am going to kill Berlioz," he said.   "He is a formidable rival. He is in   my way as a musical critic." Berlioz turned pale and shook with fear, but his host assured him that the gun was not loaded. Fiorentiuo changed his aim. "Ber- lioz isn't worth killing, after all," said he. "I shouldn't get his p...

BRET HARTE'S REPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

BRET HARTE'S REPORTING. San Francisco has many stories about Mr. Bret Harte. The story goes, says the "Daily Chronicle," that Bret Harte had an engagement to attend the opening of a new saloon in Market-street, San Francisco. The in- terest did not begin till after 11 p.m., and Mr. Harte was late in getting back to the ''Chronicle." The night editor had gone, leaving word that   Mr. Harte was to hand in his   half column to the foreman printer     without editorial revision. Mr. Harte had taken particular pains with his copy, which was really funny. Begin- ning in grandiloquent terms he des- cribed the new premises accurately enough. Then he came on to the good cheer, then to more good cheer, his praise of the refreshments piling up stage by stage, till it wound np in in- coherency. It was an exact portrayal of the stages of a man's mind passing from exhilaration into intoxication. Looking for his article next day Mr. Harte found h...

THE MAKING OF A BILLIARD CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

THE MAKING OF A BILLIARD CHAMPION.   Billiard champions are sometimes born and not made, but the majority most have more than a natural apti- tude for the game before they win fame as knights of the green cloth. The making of a billard champion is tedious, and—to any save true lovers of the game—tiresome. Musicians who are moulded for a professional career by some inexorable foreign master do not have a harder time than does the patient billiard player whose ambition is to vanquish all comers. All the training in the world, how- ever, will not make a man a successful DAWSON'S BRIDGE BOUCLEE. expert if he is without a natural taste   for billiards. This is plainly illustrated   in the case of Mr. H. W. Stevenson, the well-known champion, who has a delightful style, and plays with re- markable delicacy. Mr. Stevenson began to play billiards when 14 years old. He is now 28, and during the intervening years he has vanquished many skilled players. T...

MUSSOLINO, THE ROMANTIC BRIGAND. HIS ESCAPES AND MISDOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

MUSSOLINO, THE ROMANTIC BRIGAND. HIS ESCAPES AND MISDOINGS. The trial of the remarkable brigand Mussolino, now going forward at Borne, is creating world- wide attention. From time to time the most interesting facts concerning both brigand and trial hare appeared in this paper. It appears that when Massolino was captured last year, just before his sen- sational escape at Christmas, he was locked up in a prison near Reggio, the strongest in the whole province of   Calabria. This building is an old   monastery, which was originally built   in the Middle Ages. It has a deep moat around it, tremendous inner and outer walls, and all the features of a mediaeval fortress monastery. It is a romantic and gloomy pile. The monks' cells have been transformed AN OMINOUS SIGN. into prisons, and into one of the most inaccessible of these, right in the heart of the prison, Mussolino was put. It had one little barred window looking on a gloomy court yard. On the...

FOUND THREE ENDS TO THE ROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

FOUND THREE ENDS TO THE ROPE. When Captain W. W. Snow, who recently retired from the Beeton and Philadelphia line after a continuons service of 57 years, took command of   his first vessel, an Irishman asked the captain if he could employ him. "Well," said Captain Snow, at the same time handing the man a piece of rope, "if you can find three ends to that rope you shall have work." The Irishman thought a moment, and then took hold of one end of the rope. "There's one end, your honor," he said. Then he took hold of the other end, and, showing it to the captain as before, said : And that's two ends, your honor." Then, taking hold of both ends of the rope he threw it overboard, saying : "And, there's an end to the rope, your honor, and that's three ends." Captain Snow engaged him.   "It beats anything rising you ever saw"—   Hoghes and Doheney's Self-raising Flour.

Her first impulse was a truly   womanly one—to break out of   his embrace and fly from him. But he held her so tightly; his kisses seemed to render her so powerless;   it was all so sweet to be in his arms and hear him say he loved her, that her moral sense, the realisation of what was right and what was wrong, was blunted by the knowledge of what was sweet, and hearing in reality what in dreams she had always hoped to hear—his words of reverent love for HER—she yielded to tempta- tion, and in the weakness of her soul and the strength of her passion, held her peace and took the goods the gods provided, caring not HOW they came, so that they were hers if only for a little time. "How you tremble, ...

THE MAN IN THE STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

THE MAN IN THE STREET     Next to health, the greatest possession of a man is character. Every other man, no matter what he may be him- self, expects to see the hall-mark upon us, and he will take pains to test it before he trusts us far. Out in the busy world, you want a character from me, and I want a character from you. Character is the bed-rock of public and private confidence. To the get- ting of it, it is worth while to bed the efforts of our whole life. The   losing of it means shipwreck. We no longer ride proudly on the waves; we no longer anchor safely in the harbor. The masts have gone, the rudder is swept sway, the sails are rent, the compass is out of truth. Battered and broken, we are tossed   hither and thither. We are under water. The Social World has no use for us. The better friend- ships have passed. The place that knew us knows us no more. The very pavement upon which we walk seems to have grown harder. We have f...

THE SHIP THAT NEVER RETURNED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

THE SHIP THAT NEVER RETURNED. Twelve years ago the Austrian Johann Salvator of Tuscany, a nephew of the Emperor, fell in love with an opera singer. Renouncing his rank   and his prospects, he married her at the office of the Islington Registrar, bought in Liverpool a fine ship, which he named the Santa Margarita, and sailed for South America with an unromantic cargo of cement.   He discharged his cargo in an Ar- gentine port and sail again for an unknown destination in the South Sea. From that moment all trace of Johann Orth, as he called himself, is lost.   At this long interval of time the Vienna correspondent of the "Times" sends a story which "Neues Wienar   Tagblatt" has received from a Dutch engineer. Captain Wychgel, who is now in the service of the United States at Washington.   Captain Wychgel's Story.   In 1890 Captain Wychgel was en-   gaged at Ensenada, on the coast of Argentina, i...

ABOUT THE "FUNNY BONE." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

ABOUT THE "FUNNY BONE." Everybody is familiar with the dis- agreeable sensation in finger tips known as "a knock on the funny bone." In reality it is not a bone at   all that causes the curious tingling, but an important nerve which runs down the arm. It is for the most part deep-seated in the flesh, but near the back of the elbow lies close to the under surface of the skin. When this is accidentally struck, the nerve conveys the impression to the brain. But it happents that sensa- tions brought by the ulnar nerve are those usually which have been caused at its ends, the finger tips; and the brain obstinately refuses to believe that any messages can possibly come along the telegraph wire of the nerve except from the regular stations. So, when the knock is experienced and the message received, the brain refers it   as having come from the termini of line instead of from somewhere mid- way, and, despite the actual fact, assures us that it is our fingers that ...

THE NEARER EAST. [HEINEMANN] [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

[HEINEMAN]   In the remarkable and important volume which he has contributed to   the "Regions of the World" series, Mr. D. G. Hogarth has done even more than was expected of him. Both in matter and method he has risen alto-   gether above the standard of workman- like excellence to which the best instalment of a "series" is ordinarily supposed to conform, and has produced a book which ranks as a genuine ad- dition to the study of mankind. In point of science it fills a place apart, and will long retain authority. Nothing at all equal to it exists in any other   European language, and for once in a way we have got a stroke of work to which Germans may be invited to re-   fer, though they are more keenly in- terested in the Near East, as it happens, than any other people, and have pro- duced recent literature upon it in ex- ceptional quantity. As writing it hardly need be said that the volume is   marked by...

CHAPTER VIII. IN WHICH MY LADY LEADS TRUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

CHAPTER VIII. IN WHICH MY LADY LEADS TRUMPS.   Having arrived at this conclusion, Sir Hugh did what was only natural, namely—slipped the silver star into his waistcoast pocket, and walked   serenely back in the direction of the house. He had gone but a few yards be- yond the shadow of the trees of the oak avenue, however, when the soft frou frou of silken skirts fell suddenly upon his ear, a whiff of woodland violets rose over and stifled the scent of the more seasonable flowers, and glancing up, he found himself looking into the pretty face and the clear dark eyes of my Lady Una Charlock. He made a sort of frosty bow as he saw and recognised her, and halting a moment—from pure courtesy—calcu- lated mentally that it was just about twenty strides to the terrace steps, and that the "interview" need not, therefore, be of long duration. "What a lovely night it is," he said   inanely. "I hope your ladyship is as interested in the beauty of it as I h...

CHAPTER IX. THE WHITE FIGURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 27 July 1902

CHAPTER IX.   THE WHITE FIGURE.   From the top of the staircase— huddled back in a convenient door- way, her bedroom candle extinguished,   and her eyes shining in the darkness   like the eyes of any other cat—my Lady Una Charlock had been a secret witness to that tender good-night, and the knowledge that these two detested people had managed already to come to a lovers' understanding bit into her very soul. She saw that Miss Mallison was about to ascend the staircase, and knowing that there was now nothing more to be gained by playing the spy, slipped soundlessly out of her hiding place, and ran with noiseless footfalls to her own room. "Oh, it is youat last, miladi," ex-   claimed her maid, startled out of her nap by her mistress' entrance. Ma foi! how pale you are. And no wonder, since the candle is extin- guished, and miladi has had to come up the dark passage alone." "Stop your silly chatter, and don't make a moun...
