CARLTON VERNON BLYTH. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
CARLTON VERNON BLYTH. &nbsp; Immediately succeeding him came Captain &nbsp; Blyth, with the immaculate coat, the shiny boots, and the swagger of yore, just a little modified. How he recalled 30 years back, when he used to drive the coach between London and Read- ing, and we all used to meet at Major Braham's —the Major being a son of the celebrated singer &nbsp; and a brother of Constance Lady Waldegrave. &nbsp; How one thought of dear old Charlie Buller, &nbsp; of the Blues, and Charlie Parr, and Sir Harry &nbsp; Paul Burrard, and the rest of the old gang. &nbsp;
THE SWELL OF THE OCEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE SWELL OF THE OCEAN. And I had scarcely passed Admiral Keppel when I looked up an saw Admiral Sir Algernon Heneage smart and dandified as ever he was in the days of his youth, when everyone knew him as "the swell of the ocean." Voice, manner, smart curly-trimmed silk hat—why, he was just the same as ever, with only an added crow's foot here and there to say he was not quite so young or so agile as he once was.
BLYTH AND THE ARCHBISHOP. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
BLYTH AND THE ARCHBISHOP. It is of Byth the story is told how that he &nbsp; was standing in his hatter's while his hat was &nbsp; being ironed, and suddenly to him appeared a &nbsp; certain Archbishop of Canterbury, who, hand- ing his shovel hat to Blyth, said to him: "Have you got a hat like that?" and Blyth, to the Archbishop's horror and confusion, replied: "No, I have not, and I'd be d—d sorry to have &nbsp; one like it." Captain Blyth is one of those &nbsp; with whom time has dealt very gently and &nbsp; kindly indeed. &nbsp;
FRENCH WARSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
FRENCH WARSHIPS. "Le Yacht" states that the French Minister of Marine has ordered the following criusers, built of wood and iron, to be struck off the list of the French navy: The Iphigenie, Duquesne, and Tourville. They are to be converted into col- liers. "Le Yacht" adds that it is not generally known that in 1897, when hostilities threatened between France and England, the battleships Charlemagne and Gaulois were at Brest in a condition to go to sea as far as their machinery was concerned, but had received only a small part of their armament. An arrangement was immediately made to transfet to them the guns of the Duquesne and Tourville, but fortunately it never became necessary to carry the arrange- ment into effect. The trial trip of the new submarine, the Silure, took place recently at Cherbourg. The new vessel was more than an hour under water. The time occupied in the plunge was 10 minutes, but this, it is expected, will be reduced to six minutes.
MISS ALICE ROOSEVELT INTRODUCED TO SOCIETY. PRESIDENT'S DAUGHTER MAKES HER DEBUT AT THE WHITE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
MISS ALICE ROOSEVELT INTRO- DUCED TO SOCIETY. PRESIDENT'S DAUGHTER MAKES HER DEBUT AT THE WHITE HOUSE. Miss Alice Roosevelt, the President's daughter, &nbsp; made her social debut on January 3 at a ball &nbsp; given in her honor by her mother. The White &nbsp; House was filled with young people, and they &nbsp; enjoyed themselves after the manner of young &nbsp; people. The state apartments had been turned &nbsp; over to them, with no other injunction put &nbsp; upon them than that they would incur the great &nbsp; displeasure of the President if they did not make &nbsp; a jolly night of it. They appeared to heed this &nbsp; injunction, for no jollier company was ever as- &nbsp; sembled in Washington than that which cele- &nbsp; brated Miss Roosevelt's formal entrance into so- &nbsp; ciety. &nbsp; Three hundred beautiful and beautifully- &nbsp; gowned young women a...
AFTER LONG YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
AFTER LONG YEARS. &nbsp; —•— With the completion of the steamship Lu- cania's latest voyage from New York to Liver- pool five weeks ago, her commander, Captain Horatio M'Kay, R.N.R., completed his service with the Cunard Company, of whose fleet he has been commodore since the retirement of Captain Hains some years ago. For two score years he has served the company—31 years as commander of one or other of their vessels—and in all that long period. In which he crossed the Atlantic times innumerable, he never met with an acci- dent. He is a native of Stonehaven, where he was born in 1835. He has witnessed great revo- lutions in the Canard service. The Canada, which he joined in 1863, was a wooden paddle steamer of 1828 tons and 2000 h.-p., with an average speed of 10½ knots. The Lucania is of 12,950 tons gross, and has engines of 16,000 h.-p., and an average speed of about 22 knots. &nbsp;
GERMAN ECONOMIC SITUATION. GLOOMY VIEWS EXPRESSED IN KAISER'S SPEECH TO PRUSSIAN DIET. AND BY VON THIELMANN IN THE REICHSTAG. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
GERMAN ECONOMIC SITUATION. &nbsp; GLOOMY VIEWS EXPRESSED IN KAISER'S SPEECH TO PRUSSIAN DIET. —♦— AND BY VON THIELMANN IN THE REICHSTAG. The speech from the throne, read by the Im- perial Chancellor, Count Von Bulow, at the open- ing of the Prussian Diet, on January 8, took a gloomy view of the economic situation. It point- ed out that the revenue from the State railroads in 1901 fell considerably short of the estimates, and that the whole results of the financial year were disappointing. The speech announced legislation providing for the housing of State workmen and officials earning small salaries. Considerable credits are demanded for the extension of the State rail- roads and the promotion and construction of light railroads. A new Canal Bill will be submitted in order to complete the system of waterways. Emperor William's speech, in conclusion, point- ed to the necessity of adopting measures against the agitation in the Polish districts of Eastern Prussia, declared that...
PAPAL BIBLICAL COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
PAPAL BIBLICAL COMMISSION. The membership of the Papal Commission on modern questions concerning Holy Writ was offi- cially announced on January 9. It consists of Cardinal Parocchi, Vice-Chancellor of the Holy Roman Church, president; Cardinals Segna, Pre- fect of the Vatican Archives, and Vives y Tuto, as Assessors. One of the Consultors, who are chosen from various countries, is Professor Gar- rigan, of the Catholic University of America. The scope of the inquiry is to ascertain the limits of freedom to be allowed to the Catholic exegetist in regard to Biblical questions—to point out definitely what must be maintained and what rejected in the interests of ortho- doxy, and what can be left to the individual con- science. The commission, notably the president, is said to represent broad-minded, progressive tenden- cies. The London "Tablet" on January 3 announced that the Pope had appointed a special commis- sion for the consideration of all questions con- nected with Biblical studie...
Where "Ben Hur" Was Written. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Where "Ben Hur" Was Written. This unique and handsome study was recently built at Crawfordsville, Indi- ana (U.S.A.), by General Lew Wallace at a cost of £8000. The interior mural decorations, of carved stone, are exceptionally artistic, both in conception and execution. In the lower left hand corner of the picture can be seen a platform, standing beneath the spreading limbs of a mammoth beech. Here General Wallace sat in favorable weather, as he wrote his most famous novel, and the tree is known as "The Ben Hur Beech." —"Inland Printer."
A DOG'S FALSE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
DOG'S FALSE TEETH. &nbsp; —♦— Among the "freaks" in the Ladies' Kennel &nbsp; Club Show, held in New York recently, was a &nbsp; Gordon setter, Rex V., a seven-year-old dog, &nbsp; which was unfortunate enough to lose four front &nbsp; teeth on the lower jaw three years ago. A veter- &nbsp; inary surgeon was consulted, and he succeeded &nbsp; in replacing the lost incisors with four gold &nbsp; teeth, in the middle of which is set a large dia- &nbsp; mond. &nbsp;
WHERE OUR KINGS WERE CROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
WHERE OUR KINGS WERE CROWNED. The first King of England to be crowned was Alfred the Great. He was first crowned at Rome at the age of five years, Pope Leo IV. performing the ceremony; and again at Winchester, when he succeeded to the throne on the death of hia brother. It was at Winchester, too, that Richard the Lion-hearted, on his return from imprison- ment in Germany, went through the coronation ceremony for the second time, "to put awaie, as it were, the reproofe of his captivitie," as Holin- shed puts it. Between Alfred the Great and Harold II. the Saxon and Danish Kings were all crowned at Kingston-upon-Thames, with the exception of Edgar the Peaceable, at Bath; Canute and Har- dacnut, at London; Harold I., at Oxford; and Edward the Confessor, at Winchester. It was when Edward the Confessor was made King that we find the first mention of a coronation sermon, an exhortation being delivered on that occasion by. the Archbishop. Harold II. was the first King to receive the crown ...
During the Year. DIREFUL FORECAST OF A FRENCH ASTROLOGER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
During the Year. DIREFUL FORECAST OF A FRENCH &nbsp; ASTROLOGER. Wars and rumors of wars are the chief feature of the horoscope which M. Ely, an astrologer, living at Montmartre, has, after three days and nights of unremitting labor, cast for the year 1902. His prophecy covers the fortunes of the whole of Europe, and the astrologer bids the "Matin" warn the French Government to be very careful not to be drawn into a general European war, which will spring from the conflict of English and Russian ambitions with Turkey as the bone of contention. March and April will be dangerous to France from enemies both inside and outside, and from commercial catastrophe. The Republicans will be successful after a hard fight in the coming elections; but M. Waldeck Rousseau will have a hard time with the discord of his followers. The Transvaal war will last another year. There will an awful outbreak of plague in the British army, but England will be victorious in the end. In Germany the army...
MORE PREDICTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MORE PREDICTIONS. &nbsp; &nbsp; A writer in the Paris "Matin", interviewed &nbsp; Mme. B., the clairvoyante, on New Year's Day. The lady was in a prophesying mood, and made quite a number of forecasts. Regarding monarchs, she said that the Em- peror Francis Joseph would not run any risk of assassination. Not so the Kaiser, however. If the Anarchists do not kill him it is because they cannot. The Tzar is very cautious, but he will soon have some reverses. The lady predicts that more daughters will be born to Nicholas II. With regard to the war in South Africa, Mme. B. said that the Boers will be defeated, but that the English will never subjugate them. England will doubtless make peace at the Coronation. She will allow the Boers a little territory, but the Boers will again break out later on, and this time they will be victors, and South Africa will be theirs.

The United States Census Bureau on January &nbsp; 7 issued a report announcing that the population &nbsp; of the entire United States, including all outly- &nbsp; ing possessions, was 84,233,069 in the census year 1900.

HER OPPORTUNITY. LADY PREACHER IN AMERICA CASTIGATES MALE WEAKNESSES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
HER OPPORTUNITY. &nbsp; LADY PREACHER IN AMERICA &nbsp; CASTIGATES MALE WEAK- &nbsp; NESSES. &nbsp; An example of how the "lady parson" would "pan out" was furnished to the people of Wil- liamsport, Pa. (U.S.A.), one Sunday recently. Mrs. P. I. Frey, wife of a Methodist minister, was invited to fill her husband's pulpit in his enforced absence. In the evening she preached on "Popular Sins," and before she finished she administered a thor- ough castigation to masculine weaknesses. These are some of the things she said: "One of the popular sins of the day is theatre- going. Many an old deacon will sit and snore in the house of God while the pastor is preach- ing the Word, but that same deacon will go to the theatre, sit with his eyes wide open, and split his sides laughing over some silly non- sensical performance on the stage. "The drink evil has crept into the Church. Some of the best-paying members of our churches have made their money through beer a...
TRAGEDY OF THE SEA. LOVE, ELOPEMENT, SHIPWRECK, DEATH, AND RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
TRAGEDY OF THE SEA. LOVE, ELOPEMENT, SHIPWRECK, DEATH, AND RESCUE. A strange and poignant story of a tragedy of &nbsp; the sea comes from Falmouth (England). &nbsp; Early in December the Norwegian barque Oxo &nbsp; arrived at Falmouth from Grand Connetable, &nbsp; and there awaited orders. Its skipper, Captain Hubert, was young and handsome. At his home in Norway he had left behind a wife and children. In Falmouth lived a lady also young and beautiful. The two met, fell violently in love, and when, a few days later, the Oxo sailed for Hamburg, the lady left her home and sailed with it and Captain Hubert in sober truth into the unknown. Days passed, and no tidings of the barque reached Falmouth. It was long overdue at its destination, and the gossips of the town were busy with speculation as to its fate. Then came news of the heavy gales on the East Coast, and then the "Shipping Gazette" brought the sequel of the love story that began less than a month...
ELECTRIC TRAMCAR HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
ELECTRIC TRAMCAR HOSPITAL. &nbsp; —♦— &nbsp; A mobile hospital—a "trolley car" with all the &nbsp; appliances of a depot for the sick—will be one of &nbsp; the features of Baltimore. The scheme is to have &nbsp; the hospital car ever in readiness for a call; that &nbsp; it be given the right of way, and its passage over &nbsp; the route be facilitated in every manner by other &nbsp; traffic. &nbsp; —"Public Opinion."
