MASONIC BENEVOLENCE IN 1901. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
MASONIC BENEVOLENCE IN 1901. &nbsp; The charitable side of Freemasonry under the &nbsp; English Constitution has shown no sign of flag- &nbsp; ging during the first year of the 20th cen- &nbsp; tury (says "The Times"). The craft in this &nbsp; country has three principal Charities—the Girls' &nbsp; School, which is the oldest; the Boys' School, 10 &nbsp; years younger; and the Benevolent Institution &nbsp; for Aged Masons and Widows, 64 years younger &nbsp; than the Girls' School. This, the youngest of the &nbsp; three institutions, totalled its 1901 receipts up &nbsp; to £40,260 13s 8d. but, although its donations &nbsp; and subscriptions for the year were £26,683, the &nbsp; Girls' School, whose total was £33,616 odd &nbsp; for the year, received in donations and sub- &nbsp; scriptions alone £27,865 15s 10d. &nbsp; Very nearly £24,000 was the sum announce...
RATS AND PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
RATS AND PLAGUE. The decision of the Turkish Government to &nbsp; require a "certificate of rat-destruction" before any vessel arriving at Constantinople from an infected port is allowed to discharge (says "The Lancet") is a distinct advance in preventive me- dicine, and is rightly based, as Professor Koch has well pointed out that such measures should be, upon recently-acquired knowledge as to the causation of the disease. Reliance upon certifi- cates, however, is not to be absolute, and vessels from infected places, though permitted to oper- ate in the port, are not allowed alongside the quays, while vessels not provided with certifi- cates have to go to a lazaret to discharge, as "rat-destruction" can only be properly secured in an empty ship. The policy of "rat-destruc- tion" on all trading vessels has been found simple of attainment in Australia, and if adopted by every nation need cause little or no interference with trade, for &nbsp; when owners once recognise...
The Court Back in Pekin. ENTRY INTO THE CAPITAL. A HOST BRILLIANT SPECTACLE. OLD TRADITIONS IGNORED. FOREIGNERS GET AN EXCELLENT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
The Court Back in Pekin. ENTRY INTO THE CAPITAL —♦— A MOST BRILLIANT SPECTACLE. OLD TRADITIONS IGNORED. FOREIGNERS GET AN EXCELLENT VIEW. The entry of the Emperor and Empress Do- wager into Pekin, ou January 7, was the most remarkable episode in the annals of Kwang-Su's reign, save the fright of the Court when Pekin was bombarded by the Allied forces. The spectacular phases of the return of the Court exceeded expectations. The cortege was a sort of glorified Lord Mayor's show, and was a bewildering and barbaric exhibition of Oriental tinseled splendor. The most significant feature of the arrangements was the complete efface- ment of the traditional deification of Chinese royalty. Greater facilities to witness the cere- monial were given to foreigners than would have been afforded to them at most European Courts. The scene at the Chien-Men Gate when the Emperor and the Dowager Empress entered the Temples to offer thanks for their safe journey were nothing less than revolutionary when...
Folly and the Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Folly and the Woman. The woman was lonely and very tired of the humdrum, daily round. Hers was a cruel, hard &nbsp; life, with no gleam of sunshine to break its &nbsp; bleak monotony. Folly saw his opportunity. &nbsp; "Come with me," he whispered, " and I will &nbsp; show you life. You only exist now; in my &nbsp; company you shall taste the nectar of the gods— &nbsp; and live." &nbsp; And the woman listened—hesitated—and then &nbsp; went to her chamber and adorned herself, and &nbsp; prepared to go abroad with the tempter. &nbsp; &nbsp; And her beauty was so bewitching in its per- &nbsp; fect innocence and freshness that Folly was &nbsp; constrained to utter a half sigh as he realised &nbsp; how quickly it would fade in the sultry heat of &nbsp; the World of Fashion. &nbsp; "You are not happy, you are discontented, &nbsp; and think others have a mu...
VAST FIGURES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
VAST FIGURES. The following particulars are furnished "The &nbsp; Times" by the hon. secretary of the London &nbsp; Clearing Bankers with regard to the amount of &nbsp; bills, cheques, etc., paid at the Bankers' Clear- &nbsp; ing-house during the past year:—The total of &nbsp; £9,561,169,000 is the largest amount passed &nbsp; through in any one year, and exceeds the total &nbsp; of 1900 by £600,999,000, and 1899 (which was &nbsp; hitherto the record year) by £410,900,000. The &nbsp; largest amount cleared on any one day was &nbsp; £109,143,000, on May 15, which was in excess of &nbsp; the previous record day, January 16, 1901, by &nbsp; £19,160,000. . . The Stock Exchange settling &nbsp; days' totals for the year show an increase of &nbsp; £243,053,000 over 1900, and £88,329,000 increase &nbsp; over 1899, the previous record. The highest &nbsp; total was o...
WIRELESS LOVE WHISPERS. HOW SIGNOR MARCONI MET THE LADY TO WHOM HE IS TO BE MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
WIRELESS LOVE WHISPERS. HOW SIGNOR MARCONI MET THE &nbsp; LADY TO WHOM HE IS TO &nbsp; BE MARRIED. &nbsp; I sent a message to my dear— &nbsp; A thousand leagues and more to her— &nbsp; The upper other thrilled to hear, &nbsp; &nbsp; And lost Laputa bore to her. &nbsp; —"The Miracles of Kipling," modernised. &nbsp; Miss Josephine Bowen Holman—daughter of &nbsp; the late Justice J. A. Holman, of the Indiana &nbsp; Supreme Court—who has just become famous as &nbsp; "Marconi's fiancee," has been telling a New &nbsp; York newspaper man how Cupid established &nbsp; his wireless communication between them. &nbsp; It was on a bleak November day of 1899 that &nbsp; Miss Holman went aboard the American liner &nbsp; St. Paul to come to England to visit friends. &nbsp; MISS JOSEPHINE BOWEN HOLMAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; Marconi had been to the Am...
VANISHED FBOM HUMAN KEN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
VANISHED FROM HUMAN KEN. A paying clerk of the Catherine Railway (Rus- sia) was travelling the other day in a luggage van with £3000 in cash, which had to be paid out as wages at the different stations on the line. At one of the level crossings the clerk went forward to the locomotive, and from that mo- ment was never seen again. Ultimately part of a human heel was found in the furnace of the locomotive, and it is sup- posed that the engine-driver and stoker robbed the man, and then burned his body.
PRO-BOER MEETING IN AMERICA. W. J. BRYAN AMONG THE SPEAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
PRO-BOER MEETING IN AMERICA. &nbsp; &nbsp; —♦— W. J. BRYAN AMONG THE SPEAKERS. &nbsp; Four thousand people attended a pro-Boer &nbsp; meeting in Gray's Armory, Cleveland (U.S.A.), &nbsp; on January 5. There was enthusiastic ap- &nbsp; plause for every expression of sympathy and &nbsp; encouragement for the Boers. An unexpcct- &nbsp; ed incident was the appearance of William &nbsp; Jennings Bryan, a one time candidate for the &nbsp; Presidency. &nbsp; The flag of the Boer Republics was &nbsp; a prominent feature of the decorations. Upon the stage were seven Boers who had been in some of the early battles of the war. The principal ad- dress was made by ex-Congressman Lentz. The Rev. &nbsp; August Franz, a &nbsp; local Reformed Lu- theran clergyman, also spoke. Mr. Bryan spoke for about five min- utes. He said in the course of his re- marks:— &nbsp; &nbsp; &am...
A PRO-POSITION! (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A PRO-POSITION! (SPECIAL TO "THE WORLD'S NEWS.") &nbsp; Pro-something everyone must be, &nbsp; Pro-British, or pro-Boer; &nbsp; The difference is one fights for peace, And one cries "Stop the war." The end's all one, yet we disown Each other with such spite. You'd reckon half the world quite wrong, The other half quite right. With patriotic speech profuse We laud our Empire's fame; We'll grind our enemies to dust To vindicate her name. Or else we twang the other string— To end this hateful war. We pray Great Britain's mercy on The poor benighted Boer. We bring the battle to our hearth. To urge our separate cause; Maybe no blood besmears the path Of our un-civil wars. But wounds as deep as bayonet's Are given by tongue and pen, When we distort as "prejudice," The honest views of men. Since we're all working to the end Of lasting peace abroad. Is there no common ground where we Can show our bon accord? My own suggestion, humbly given, &nbsp; Should both...
A SHAVER'S "COMPANION." [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A SHAVER'S "COMPANION." &nbsp; The newest thing is razor strops is herewith illustrated. It is designed particularly for the use of travellers, being a great economiser of space. The hollow handle contains the shaving brush, while in the body of the strop are con- cealed a razor, a comb, and a mirror. There is even room for a tiny drawer, which holds a cake of soap. One may find a mug anywhere, so that, provided with this ingenious bit of apparatus, the man who shaves himself is never at a loss for the conveniences, nor obliged to appeal to a barber.
PALMY DAYS IN JOHANNESBURG. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
PALMY DAYS IN JOHANNESBURG. &nbsp; Although there are no doubt many people none &nbsp; too well off in Johannesburg, there is a consider- &nbsp; able feeling of independence. One laundress has &nbsp; tried in every direction to get help, offering &nbsp; from 5s to 7s 6d a day, but with no success. A &nbsp; young woman was offered light employment, and &nbsp; promptly replied. "I don't go out under £5 a &nbsp; week." —"Woman's Life."
PASSING OF THE LAMP BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
&nbsp; PASSING OF THE LAMP BOY. Owing to the new acetylene lamps, which ap- &nbsp; peared recently for the first time on 1200 omni- &nbsp; buses, the agile lamp boys disappear. Their chief &nbsp; duty consisted in clambering swiftly up the om- &nbsp; nibus and dexterously removing the old oil lamp, &nbsp; which is to be happily seen no more. The new &nbsp; lamp requires no attention en route, and to light &nbsp; up it is only necessary to turn a small tap.— &nbsp; "Westminster Gazette."
A PROGRESSIVE RAJAH. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A PROGRESSIVE RAJAH. His Highness the Rajah of Cochin is really &nbsp; wonderfully progressive. The official "Gazette" of &nbsp; the Cochin State gives notice that the documents &nbsp; bearing the Rajah's sign manual, such as sanc- &nbsp; tion of legislative enactments, sanction of ex- &nbsp; penditure, leases of State lands, etc., which have &nbsp; heretofore been written on palm leaves, will &nbsp; henceforth be written on hand-made paper.— &nbsp; Madras"Weekly Mail." &nbsp; &nbsp;
PANTOMIME ON TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
PANTOMIME ON TRIAL. "It is easy to be optimistic, but it is hard to kill &nbsp; an old institution in an old country, and yet I &nbsp; venture to think that pantomime such as we &nbsp; have had during the last 15 or 20 years is on &nbsp; its trial. It is incredible to me that with such &nbsp; charming entertainments as 'Blue-Bell in Fairy- &nbsp; land' at the Vaudeville, 'Katawampus' at the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Prince of Wales', and 'Shockheaded Peter' at the &nbsp; Garrick, the present form of pantomime, which &nbsp; falls back on knockabout acrobats, cockney come- &nbsp; dians, and young ladies in preposterous 'trunks,' &nbsp; can go unassailed for any number of years."— &nbsp; The "Tatler."
