SCIENCE. SMOKELESS COAL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 27 August 1898
? ' - SMOKELESS OÓA¿. / . A. German engineer ha^ invented a method of making smokeless coal. It consists in feeding the fiamos of his furnaces with powdered coal du*t instead of with solid lumps. Ji'or this purpose a receiver charged with powdered coal is erected before the fur- nace, and the dust, after passing through a bent tube, enters tho furnace through a small fievo, tho rotation of whioh, oaused by tho natural current of air entering from bolow, serves Lo scatter the powder over the furnace. It is claimed for tho invention tbat not only does it save a largo percentage of coal, but that it onables tho inferior qualities to be uaod with equally satinfaotory results. This invention, it is olaimed, will cause something like a revolution in our great industries. I

SELF-MADE LADIES OF TITLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 27 August 1898
SELF-MADE LADIES OF TITLE. ; ' Tho tradesman who does a high class business has- no more dangerous enemy than the artificial 'My Lady' or 'Countess.' This statement was made by a gentleman himself at the head of an establishment of the kind referrod to. ' It is,' bo continued, ' from suoh unfor- tunate shopkeepers that daring adventuresses ot all sorts obtain the bulk of their supplies, the people who also chiefly suffer baing hotel proprietors and lodging houso keepers, house owners, and landlords of flats. London, Paris, Vienna, and New York are probably the chief centres of activity for these clever female swindlers, and every sen.°on thousands of pounds are lost in these cities. 4 Often r' only at the start of*operations that sue- i pie have any difficulty. Take a oase point. On the proceeds of a similar deal on the Continent, a foreign lady of most refined manners and striking appear- ance came to town, posing as a oountess.

THE PRINCE AND TAILORS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 27 August 1898
THE PRINCE AND TAILORS. I. The Philosophy of Clothes has yet to ba authoritatively laid down, and so, too, has the etiquette. For instance, when President Faure visited tho Queen at Cimiez the other day he wore a frock coat and a glossy high' hat, which would have been a credit to Bond Street or tho Boulevard dos Italiens. Yet when tho Prince of Wales returned the call on behalf of the Queen his Royal highi ness wore a picturesque but highly informal groy felt hat vvith a broad brim. The Prince is tho pink of oourtesy and the glass of fashion, eo you may be sure it was oorreot, yet one would have thought that the Presi- dential ohimney-pot would have implied an equally formal Lincoln and Bennett on the part of the Prince. II. The Prince oí Wales is absolute arbiter of fashion in tho best society, although he is by nr> means tho slave of dress which the other Prince of Wales, afterwards George the Fourth, was. The 'First Gentleman in Europe* designed his own pantaloons, and, it is...
