IV. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

IV. Well, if atiy dinner ever was a success, that one was. What they had, or how the courses came, not one of them, knew, but, to quote Freddy, everything was Al, and plenty fizz with it. Undoubtedly the fizz set all iheir tongues running' faster than before. Gradually on Freddy it began to have a slight ly composing effect, so that, the dog-cart having been sent for and brought to the door, he magnanimously insisted that going home he would sit behind and leave the ribbons to be handled by Glencore. The clock struck 9 before they wera fairly off, and then, Peggy exclaiming at the late ness of 'the hour, Grlencore said: ' But it won't matter much, will it?' No,' said "Peggy, a tnflebitterly. 'Har ris knows I'll look.after Freddy, and there s no one to bother about what becomes of me. ' You have neither father nor mother, have you ?' Glencore put the question gently, and, not waiting for her answer, went on to tell her that he, too, had lost his parents when a child, and was, like he...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

PERSONALITIES. The famous Mrs. Siddons invariably talked in blank verse. It is narrated (by Eugene Field, however), that at a dinner given her by a lady of quality,. she reproved one of the waiters, saying-: ' Gome hither, lackey, and atonement make; I called for sherry-von have brought me beer.' The ummstakeable brawn of Mrs-Langtry's forearm ia said to be the result of the athletic exercises which she keeps up as persistently as if she were in training. Members of the United States Senate were a little nonplussed one morning lately when they discovered that the Senate's opening prayer was led by a man who throughout the service wore a tall silk hat, which he promptly removed at the close of the prayer. The bewilderment ended later when they learned that the clergyman was the Rev. Dr. H. P. Mendez, one of New York's noted Jewish, rabbis. This is the first time in many years that the Senate chaplain's place has been filled by a Hebrew. Dr. Mendez was escorted by a Christian clergyma...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. Green of every shade is the fancy of the hour. You can't have too much of it. London sanctions for street wear Ion - veils of gray gauze tied in a big bow under the chin. The empire gown admits of no bustle, but what it lacks in that particular it more than makes up in sash. Coat-sleeves are still worn, but the skin tight sausage-roll variety so long rampant has given way to an easier shape. Bridal tea gowns are of India silk with fronts of cream lace which also shows in an opening at the back of the skirt. Vests of gray surah, with Watteau em broidery, are worn in Paris 011 the street under coats of fine black or suede wool. Full sleeves come more and more in fashion, and among shapes the leg of mutton is the one oftenest chosen, especially for lace or other thin stuffs. Eace veils of dotted gauze are very fashion able, and at present women are rarely seen on the street without a bit of transparent stuff drawn across their eyes. In many cases the veil is worn to the...

TALE. THE RUNAWAYS. I. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

Just of age, of an oldfamily, with vast possessions, and a heavy rent-roll, swelled by a long minority, the instant the hawk-like eye of Lady Jane fell on the young peer a thrill of joy assured her. that-there stood the husband Providence had provided for Adela. Little mattered it to Lady Jane that Lord Grleneore was silent, awkward, most painfully shy, given to bkush to tie veiy roots of his hair if a woman but addressed the most com monplace remark to him. Adela had been too carefully trained to pin her faith to externals. Besides, as regarded marriage, Lady Jane; always arranged these little aflairs for her daughters. She had brought out three before the advent of the lovely < Adela. and not one of them, she inwardly -boasted, had ever reason to fling s, syllable of reproach ...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 3 August 1888

HI. It might be tedious to retail all the folly that fell from the lips of this trio as under Freddy's guidance they pursued their way. Their united years did not make up the sober age of sixty, and they had the spirits of schoolboys out for a holiday, Lord Gleneore had never felt so much at his ease before; none of those who in society knew him would have recognised him as the same shy individual. It was 5 o'clock when they thought it 3; and then to have looked at the time would not have occurred to anybody, only that Peggy, heaving a tremendous sigh, had supposed it would soon be time to think of returning home. The horse that was so good at going, we have omitted to state, had, at a certain small hostelry, Goat and Compass by name, shown signs of rebellion. Stir from that door he would not, and Lord Gleneore, to cut short the difficulty, had proposed that they should leave the brute to get a feed, while they took a stroll in the park. Returning from this walk they passed the Star...

Lord Giencore repeated this faet to himself most cheerily, as he walked along' Piccadilly "with a heart and a step as light as a bird's.

HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

HUMQUR. It isn't that women talk more than men; it is only that men do hot have so much to say that is valuable. ? The professional philanthropist is a man who will assist any worthy person if other people supply the means. Sunday School Teacher-Now boys, who shall inherit the earth ? Little Johnnie (wise beyond his years)-Please, mum, it's the Irish. When the Scriptural writer advised people to heap coals of fire .on the heads of their enemies, fuel was probably much cheaper than it is now. A young man ought not to propose too gracefully. If he does the girl may get the idea that he has had more practice than she deems desirable. * And are you really so badly broke, my friend ?' he said, as he tendered the tramp a penny. 'Broke!' was the bitter response, 'I'm as badly broke as the Ten Com mandments.' Physician (to convalescent patient)-My bill, sir, for attendance during your late illness.

A Ladies' Club. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 10 August 1888

A. Ladies' Club A. new club for ladies was opened recently in London. It is not the first of its kind in London, for the Alexandra Club, in Bond street, has been most successful, and has now been obliged to remove to larger quarters. Two or three bedrooms are at 'he disposal of country members, while the reading-room, drawing-room, and dining-room are much affected by its town supporters. A book is always kept, in which members write their suggestions for improvements to the club, and amonn these are to be found many requests for a billiard-room, while not a few Indies clamor eagerly for a retreat where they can smoke mild cigarettes at their ease. One frequently sees several cavaliers, like Peris at the gate of paradise, waiting at the doors of the club for som^ fair member, for no man is allowed to enter the sacred precincts in which their sweethearts and wives rejoice. The Princess of "Wales, whose complexion is fine, takes her morning plunge regularly, and in water fairly-cold, ...
