ANOTHER SHOW. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 20 July 1888

ANOTHER SHOW. TO THE EDItOB OIK,-so many tetters bare appeared lately in the paper in the same strain as the one in the last week's issue, signed Diogenes, with about the same amount of truth in them, that I think it is about time to con tradict the statements made. Diogenes, in his bilious effusion, says that a mighty array of debts unpaid is sticking out, and that the secretary does not care to try and effect a clearance. Now there is no such array of debts to be disclosed, and in fact the old debts standing from the previous year, amounting to over £18, have been cleared off, and a balance remains in the Bank. With regard to the balance sheet, Which Diogenes says is so difficult to procure in Petersburg^ he is ont of it again, for the sheet in question has been produced and passed. It is evident that Diogenes, who ever he is, is not a member of the Petersburg Agricultural Society, and I will venture to say has never given a shilling towards carry ing on the same. In factf I belie...

FARM AND GARDEN. Management of Young Turkeys. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

KARM AND GARDEN. Management of Young Turkeys. It often happens that the season'for hatching , young turkeys opens unfavorably. Perchance . the spring is backward: cold, chilling rains" * abound, and the practicability of allowing the young, helpless poults to be turned upon the tender mercies of an unfeeling world is entirely out of the question ; some other plan must be resorted to. If there is a clean, rain-proof shed, it may be utilized, providing it is not infested with rats, weaseis, or other destructive vermin. Inclose the most sunny and well drained corner in such manner that either the. - old hen or ths young ones cannot leave the quarters without your permission, and keep them there several days, or until all the ponlts are strong on foot and lively; then begin by_ allowing them their liberty an hour or so in the afternoon, driving them back before night- - fall. If you persevere in this and the shed is a suitable plaae wherein to erect roosts, the flock may be kept there u...

Big Life Insurance. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

Bis Life Insurance. The aggregate value of the Uvea of moze than two hundred prominent Cincinnati mer chants and heads of colorations is more &aii §10,000,000. Rather, that is the sum they are insured for in life insurance companies. The life insurance premiums paid by some wealthy Cincinnati men would make lie good looks of a §5,000-a-year salary dis appear instantaneously. A reporter yester- 1 day was shown by an agent a list of the ' policies carried|by somewell-known Cincinna tians. More than two hundred, he said, .. carry over §5,000 each on their lives. Ml E. Ingalis, President of the Chesapeake and Ohio and Big Four Railway companies, carries the largest line of insurance of any man in the city, and it would cost the insur ance companies just §500,000 to read his obituary in the newspapers. The fifty-fourth birthday of Chauncey M. Depew has just =« occurred. Insurance men 8ay that Mr. De- ' pew carries policies on his life amounting in. all to §500,000. This is only e...

TALE. The Widow of the Late Smith. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

T A L E. The Widow of the Late Smith. THEEE were fire of us in the coach, a huge, solid affair, resembling an immense box. It rested on enormous leather straps that allow ed it to swing with a motion that is best de scribed by saying it was diagonal, though in fact it was sot diagonal at all- One moment we found ourselves sliding toward the foremost corner on the left, as the wheel on that side dropped heavily into tome almost bottomless hole; the next instant we would be flying with pleasant unanimity through the rear window on the right, and again, seeking to force an outlet through the roof or floor. Bat the resultant of these motions, put together, added and divided, is most nearly described by the word diagonal, and so-diagonal it is. All five of the passengers were riding in side, for it was a day in November-cold and cloudy, and a light snow was spasmodically falling, as if really uncertain whether to stop or go on, bnt, on the whole, rather in favor of going on, it being'a c...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. ' - - - -4. . Grape is again in high favour as a stuff for headgear, but bonnet or hat of it must be self-trimmed to be stylish. Sprays and clusters of faded roses, wind torn till sometimes, but three petals cling to the stems, are the latest " realistic " effect in bonnet flowers. Milan straw and French chip are again conspicuously fashionable ; yet Neapolitan and mixtures of various fancy braids hold them a very good second. ' Small bonnets, big hats,' is Dame Fashion's spring decree- to which the pronounced poke and the inconspicuous tur ban are the exceptions proving the rule. Women's gowns are much bettered in the matter of weight, now that designers have bethought them to make drapery, simply by slightly looping a lengthened skirt. A Paris fancy for turbans and toques is to make them of rough fancy braid interwoven with gold thread alternately with embroidered bands of silk or surah, matching their ribbons in color. Heron cigarettes are used to accent a cluster...

A Revolution in Fashions. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

A Revolution in Fashions. The empire style of dress is gaining1 ground; there is no doubt of it, and we shall probably wind up the century dressed in our great-grandmothers' costumes. Little by little we are accepting the dresses of the premier empire, resurrected for us by the elegant toilets of Mme. Sarah Bernhardt in 'La Tosca.' The style is not yet gene ral, but it promisesfip become so, and if many ladies shrink at present from adopting the entire dress they nevertheless wear with pleasure the round waisted empire corsage, with its pretty plaited fronts draped en fichu across each other, models which are so becoming to the slenderness of youth. There is that about empire dresses and bodices which makes them unfit for maturity. The empire dresses have revived old-world brocades (silk or woollen), and those ladies who possess rich stuffs bought by their great grandmothers, may wear them now suitably made-up. Gauzy fabrics and brocades of large, rich pattern divide the palm for em...

Recollections of Bishop Wilberforce. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

I ! Recollections of Blsliop Wilberforce. ' In a village school bishop Wilberforce was giving a lesson on Jacob's ladder and tbe Angels, and then invited any child present to &sk a question, "whereupon an ingenuous lad fcsked how it was the angels wanted a ladder When they had wings. The questioner was a little nonplussed, but; wanting to know "fsrhat was floating in the children's brains he called up a little chap and said, ' Tommy, can you explain that?' 'I suppose,' said the ilrchin, ' cos they, was a moultin'.' A little girl was found after church with her pet dog Sod cat perched up on a chair, whilst she was solemnly reading, her New Testament 'aloud. 'Don't you know?' she said, by way of explanation, ' the Bishop told us to preach the Gospel to every creature. Isn't a dog or cat a creature P' Some village^ children Were observed by him making mud-pies. 'Well, my little men,' said he, 'and what are you idoing there ?' ' "We're making a church, sir.'

Blameless. "When the last knot was tied, and she was bound to the chair by the gentle insistence of some half-dozen silk cravats, said she : 'Ihope that you have not so far misunder stood the indulgence I have shown you as to suppose that I will actually permit you to Id sb me. With an eloquence of which I had not, I confess, thought you capable, you have depicted the happiness which I should confer upon you if I allowed you to tie me to this chair, so to disable me that I could not pre- i vent your wresting from my defenceless lips i that kiss which I am not, alas! at liberty to | give you. Penetrated by the ardour of your j prayers, and impressed by the subtlety of j your reasoning, I consented to submit to this j duress.

PERSONALITIES. Edwin'Booth is probably the -wealthiest of living actors, and, anomalous aa it may seem, he.ia also the most generous. Lord Leslie, a poverty stricken Irish Peer, is travelling agent for a sewing machine company. Gladstone's 6tudy is so isolated inhis house j that no outside sound can be heard once the padded doors are closed. - Lord Augustus Loftus, now presides over j the bookkeeping department of ithe millinery store recently opened by Lady Loftus. They have no other means of support. Bismarck is one of the largest paper manufacturers in Germany. The daily production of his mills at Varzin averages, something over fifteen, ions.. He is also a distiller on a large scale, as a timber merchant he is only surpassed by the Prince ot Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, who owns the great Thuringian forest, and the Prince von Furs tenburg, who disposes of all the timber cut in this Black Forest by hereditary right.

Rich Jewels. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

Rich Jewels. Mrs. Hicks-Lord created a sensation; at a reception the other evening by appealing in an armour of jewels. Washington society has never seen anything to equal it in the way of personal adornment. Her famous $250,000 necklace encircled her throat. She wore a pair of earrings probably not equalled in this country. Her bodice was a perfect mass of jewels. Her gems glittered in the gaslight like rain-drops in the sun. The de sign of some of them was unique. One splendid spray represented a cluster of wild roses, five petals of each rose being five dia monds of similar size and shape. Another was a spray of fuchsias formed of hundreds of small and large diamonds, about a dozen huge stare and almost as many crescents. She also wore an open fan covered with dia monds in her hair. This is described as a chef d'oeuvre of the goldsmith. Each side of the fan shows fifteen raised plaits, and the whole is studded beautifully with diamonds, beautifully matched in colour and size.

Curious Freaks of Fine Steel. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 27 July 1888

Curious Freakslof Fine St«eL The finest grades of razors are so delicate, that even the famous Damascus blades cannot equal them in texture. It is not generally known that the grain of a Swedish razor is so sensitive that its general direction is changed after a short service.' When you buy a fine razor the grain runs from the upper end of this outer point in a diagonal direction toward, the handle. Constant stropping will twist the steel until the grain appears to set straight npi and down. Subsequent 'use will drag the , grain outward from the edge, so that after steady use for several months the fibre of the steel occupies a position exactly the reverse of that which appeared on the day of purchase. The process also affects the temper of the blade, and when the grain setsfrom thelowei outer end toward the back you have a tool which cannot be kept in condition by the most conscientious barber. But here's another freak of nature. Leave the razor alone for a month, and when you take...
