Tattersall's Consultations. HOW THEY HAVE GROWN, AND HOW THEY ARE WORKED. (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") (BY AN OLD EMPLOYEE.) [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Tattersall's Consultations. &nbsp; HOW THEY HAVE GROWN; AND HOW THEY ARE WORKED. &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") &nbsp; (BY AN OLD EMPLOYEE.) &nbsp; I. Now that the edict has gone forth that the &nbsp; speculator in "consultations" shall not use the &nbsp; post-offices as a means of communicating with &nbsp; "Tattersall" after the 31st March, it may be in- &nbsp; teresting to those who have sought wealth &nbsp; &nbsp; at the feet of the fickle goddess, "Fortune," to &nbsp; read a few particulars connected with the con- &nbsp; duct of this gigantic concern. &nbsp; "Tattersall's Consultations" were not, as is &nbsp; &nbsp; generally supposed, originated by the present &nbsp; popular proprietor, but by a former licensee of &nbsp; the well-known hostelry in Pitt-street, who is &nbsp; still in the land of the living, an...
In China. THE TROUBLE AT NIU-CHWANG. HOW THE QUARREL BETWEEN AMERICAN SAILORS AND RUSSIAN SOLDIERS ORIGINATED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
In China. THE TROUBLE AT NIU-CHWANG. —♦— HOW THE QUARREL BETWEEN AMERICAN SAILORS AND RUSSIAN SOLDIERS ORIGINATED. While the casualties in the fighting at Niu- &nbsp; Chwang between American sailors and Russian &nbsp; soldiers are trifling up to date (January 8), the &nbsp; matter has resulted in unpleasantly strained re- &nbsp; lations between the American, Russian, and Bri- &nbsp; tish authorities there. The Washington and St. &nbsp; Petersburg Government are now endeavoring &nbsp; to arrange matters so that there may be no &nbsp; further friction at Niu-Chwang. &nbsp; The trouble originated in the action of some &nbsp; sailors belonging to the British sloop-of-war Al- &nbsp; gerine (also in winter quarters at Niu-Chwang), &nbsp; in carrying ashore six rifles for use in a theatrical &nbsp; performance. The Russian Administration sent &nbsp; a force of men to arrest the B...
ADVICE TO FRENCH CATHOLICS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
ADVICE TO FRENCH CATHOLICS. —♦— The Paris correspondent of "The Times," on January 6, said that Cardinal Richard, Arch- bishop of Paris, in receiving a deputation of Catholic journalists, urged all Christians to sink their differences on the eve of the elections. The question, said the Cardinal, was whether France, faithful to her glorious traditions, should remain Christian, or, going under the yoke of the Freemason, should sacrifice her faith.
A FIVE WEEKS' TRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A FIVE WEEKS' TRANCE. —♦— At the village of Nogradvadkert, in Hungary, Maria Molnar, the wife of the wealthiest local peasant, has been in a sleep-trance for five weeks. She can only be aroused for a few seconds at a time by the use of ether, and with the exception of the membrane of the nose, her body is entirely rigid. Peasants from tbe vicinity come to see her, and pray at her bedside, regarding her lethargic condition as a miracle. Physicians have come all the way from Budapest to examine the in- teresting case.
SOME CURIOUS WELSH CUSTOMS. (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
SOME CURIOUS WELSH CUSTOMS. (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") An old Welsh custom, still clung to, is that carried out when a miner is killed underground. The body is brought to the surface, and laid on an ambulance stretcher. Then there is a wait until all the miners come up, after which a pro- cession is formed, and the body slowly and silently carried homeward. All work is sus- pended for the rest of the day. Several police court cases have arisen out of this custom, for leaving work, but it will probably go on so long as there is coal raised and a miner killed. In Glamorganshire there is a magnificent ruin of an old castle called Carrycenen. The south side is built on the ledge of an exceedingly high cliff, and by the side of this cliff there runs down into the bowels of the earth an under- ground passage, which in the old days was used as a dungeon. Just where the passage leaves the cliff and runs into the earth, there is a well, which presents a most peculiar spectacle. The bot...
CAPETOWN EXHIBITION IN 1903. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
CAPETOWN EXHIBITION IN 1903. An exhibition is to be held in Capetown in 1903, says a despatch from that city to "The Times." It will be organised from England, and its main object will be the promotion of trade. There will be no appeal for colonial funds. Abyssinia's trade in gold and ivory is mainly in the hands of the Emperor Menelik, says a French consular report.
THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE WEEK. Complaints are frequently being made that by superior advertising skill or self- assertion some of the other States are con- stantly managing to get priority over New South Wales. This makes it the more &nbsp; necessary to draw attention to the fact that, at any rate, on the matter which has attracted considerable attention here and in England, New South Wales holds pre- eminence over all its rivals. The glory of getting the Imperial Government to pay 3 per cent. commission on disbursements made on behalf of that Government, so far as can be ascer- tained, wholly be- longs to Mr. See, and the colony over which he presides. Mr. Chamberlain said the other day that no colony had put in such a claim except New South Wales. The Queensland Gov- ernment, in a shame- faced sort of way, confessed that it was about to charge commission, but said that it was only led to do so by the example of New South Wales. Mr. Peacock, after taking the precaution to inquire before speakin...
THE DUCHESS AND HER DAUGHTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE DUCHESS AND HER DAUGHTERS. The Duchess of St. Albans is stepmother of the present Duke. She enjoys the privilege of driving along Rotten Row, a distinction only shared with one other non-Royal lady, the Mis- tress of the Robes. She is the daughter of the wittiest man in Britain, Bernal Osborne, and her sister is Lady Blake, wife of the brilliant Governor of Hongkong. The Duchess' stepdaughters (whom she chape- roned devotedly) are Lady Louise Loder and Lady Sibyl Lascellles. Her own daughters, who are all exceedingly pretty, are Lady Moyra Cavendish, Lady Kitty Somerset, and Lady Alex- andra Beauclerk. The latter was engaged to Mr. Charles Cavendish, Lord Chesham's elder on. who was killed at Rhenoster early in the war.
In the Public Gaze. A LITTLE-KNOWN DUKE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
In the Public Gaze. A LITTLE-KNOWN DUKE. For a young, handsome, and highly eligible parti the Duke of St. Albans is surprisingly little heard of. As a matter of fact, Charles Victor Albert Aubrey de Vere Beauclerk, eleventh Duke, cares for society not at all. He has the roving and adventurous disposition that cannot satisfac- torily express itself in "the whirl of the town," and long and somewhat solitary yachting ex- peditions are very much to his mind. Yet he is only 31. He will probably occupy a place at the Coronation as Hereditary Grand Falconer and Hereditary Registrar of the Court of Chancery. His place in Notts, Bestwood, is one of the finest seats in England, and Newton Anner, in Tipperary, is still more beautiful.
OLD FACES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
OLD FACES. It is curious (writes a correspondent of the "Express" much about town), to note the les- sening of the old faces with which one was once so familiar in the golden past. But now and again as one strolls down Picca- dilly or the shady side of Pall Mall he runs up against an old familiar friend, or notes in a passing glance the changes time slowly brings about. Only the other day I encountered old Sir Harry Keppel, the King's life-long friend, and a brave old sea-warrior, leaning on the arm of a friend, and not in the least looking his 92 years of age. And now I fear he has wandered off by himself to the Far East.
A TOUCHING STORY OF QUEEN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A TOUCHING STORY OF QUEEN VICTORIA. At the opening meeting of the Gordon League, Mr. Harold Boulton, who narrated the history of the establishment and progress of the Queen &nbsp; Victoria Jubilee Institute for Nurses, said that &nbsp; the late Queen, a very short while before her death, visited a military hospital, and asked one man who had been terribly mutilated in a South African battle if there was anything she &nbsp; could do for him. "Only to thank the nurse," was the soldier's faint answer, and the Queen &nbsp; gravely laid her hand on the Victoria nurse's shoulder and said, "I thank you, my daughter. for your goodness to my son." —The "Hospi- tal."
A BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS. One of the most beautiful young women in America means to invade the London boards presently. This is Miss Ethel Barrymore, daugh- ter of poor Maurice Barrymore, now in an asy- lum for the insane near New York. Miss Barry- more will run Mrs. N. C. Goodwin very closely in the matter of looks, and her extremely girlish manner makes her a great favorite. Nothing immature, however, will be found in her acting. Mr. John Drew, himself a starring comedian in America, is Miss Barrymore's uncle, her mother having been Miss George Drew Barry- more. Mr. John S. Barrymore, the youngest brother of the actress, has just won a scholar- ship of the Press Artists' League in New York.
LORD ROSEBERY'S DRIVES By NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
LORD ROSEBERY'S DRIVES BY &nbsp; NIGHT. &nbsp; Lord Rosebery, who is spending Christmas &nbsp; quietly at Dalmeny, his seat near Edinburgh, has been exciting some curiosity among his neigh- &nbsp; bors in Midlothian by a form of exercise or &nbsp; recreation to which he has recently taken. &nbsp; He has been in the habit lately, two or three &nbsp; times a week, of ordering a carriage and four &nbsp; horses to be got ready for him after dinner— &nbsp; sometimes as late as 10 o'clock at night, and &nbsp; in this equipage, preceded by an outrider, the &nbsp; ex-Premier has himself rapidly whirled for an &nbsp; hour or two through the "policies" of his park, &nbsp; or on the road between Dalmeny and Edinburgh. &nbsp; Lord Rosebery suffers, it is understood, from &nbsp; occasional insomnia of an obstinate kind; and &nbsp; he has an idea that he may induce sleep...
THE AMERICAN LADY AND THE DUKE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE AMERICAN LADY AND THE &nbsp; DUKE. &nbsp; The Duke of Richmond's second title of Gor- &nbsp; don was only revived in his favor a quarter of &nbsp; a century ago, rather to the chagrin of the &nbsp; Huntly branch of the family, who considered &nbsp; they had a better claim to it, as the senior &nbsp; male line of the house of Gordon. &nbsp; An amusing story was current in London &nbsp; soon after the Duke became Duke of Gordon &nbsp; as well as of Richmond. &nbsp; An American lady, well known in English &nbsp; society, happened to receive a letter from his &nbsp; Grace (who was personally unknown to her), with reference to a picture he wished to pur- chase from her. &nbsp; Mrs. H— misunderstood the double-bar- &nbsp; relled ducal signature, and addressed her re- &nbsp; ply to "Messrs. Richmond and Gordon, picture- &nbsp; dealers!" &nbsp;<...
