THE HIGHLANDERS' DISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE HIGHLANDERS' DISTRESS. "I hear alarming accounts of the condition of &nbsp; the kilts of some of the Highlanders who have &nbsp; been in South Africa since the early days of the &nbsp; war. One historic regiment, lately sent down to &nbsp; Cape Colony for a rest, has received permission &nbsp; to wear trousers between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. In &nbsp; one company certain men were lately found by &nbsp; their officer arrayed in the trews at 4.30 in the &nbsp; afternoon, whereupon the whole company were &nbsp; ordered to surrender the offending garments."— &nbsp; London "Truth."
A WONDERFUL DAISY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A WONDERFUL DAISY. &nbsp; A daisy has been produced in California that is &nbsp; a floral wonder. Measuring more than a foot in &nbsp; circumference, and with, three or more rows of &nbsp; petals of purest white, it is as yet merely a &nbsp; beautiful curiosity, but before long it is likely to &nbsp; find its way into general cultivation. It has been &nbsp; named the "Shasta Daisy," and the grower who &nbsp; originated it says it was obtained by crossing the &nbsp; common American field daisy with the Japanese &nbsp; and European kinds. The flowers when cut re- &nbsp; main perfectly fresh and in good condition for &nbsp; two weeks or more.— "Transcript," Boston, U.S.A.
DANGEROUS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
DANGEROUS DELIGHTS. Dr. S. A. Knopf, of New York, has recently &nbsp; drawn attention to the danger of tuberculous in- &nbsp; fection in childhood, from visits to menageries. &nbsp; These greatly loved visits of the little ones &nbsp; should, he thinks, give concern to sanitarians. &nbsp; To visit the monkey-houses in the Zoological &nbsp; Gardens, and to remain there as long as nurses, &nbsp; time, and temper will allow, is the delight of &nbsp; every child. But monkeys also, like the children &nbsp; of men, are prone to tubercle. The commotion, &nbsp; dust and impure air of the average monkey-house &nbsp; are certainly favorable to the dissemination of tubercle.— "Medical Press."
VIOLINISTS PRECIOUS HAND. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
VIOLINIST'S PRECIOUS HAND. Mr. Charles Frohman has insured Herr Kube- lik's right hand against injury for £2000. Mr. Frohman explained that six persons, including his valet and personal manager, have the care of Herr Kubelik constantly, but even their watchfulness is not sufficient guarantee against accident. It will be remembered that when Mr. Joseffy first came to Chickcring Hail and made a sensation a felon on his thumb interrupted his engagement. Mr. Jopef Hofmann fell from his bicycle and hurt his hand under similar cir- cumstances. Messrs. Ole Bull, Wienawski, and Paderewski were also subjected to accidents that interfered with their tours.— —"New York Herald." &nbsp;
A ROYAL RAILWAY SALOON. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A ROYAL RAILWAY SALOON. The new railway carriage of the King of the Belgians has just left the workshops of the Com- pagnie des Wagons-Lits. It is of teak wood, with gold mouldings. It comprises a Louis Seize saloon in green and gold, the King's private &nbsp; apartments, a smoke-room, and rooms for the &nbsp; Royal suite. For the bedroom and dressing- room of the King red mahogany from the Congo &nbsp; has been used, and for those of the Princess &nbsp; Clementine citron wood has been employed. All &nbsp; the ceilings (says the "Independance Beige") &nbsp; are artistically painted. &nbsp;
PRUSSIAN WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
PRUSSIAN WEALTH. The'"Hanover Courier" states that in the fol- lowing Prussian towns of over 5000 inhabitants the assessment of 1899 shows the millionaires (in marks) to be distributed as follows:—Ber- lin compte, 1306 millionaires; Frankfort-sur- Main, 447; Cologne, 217; Charlottenburg, 191; Dusseldorf, 151; Wiesbaden, 143; Breslau, 101; Hanover, 95; Aix-la-Chapelle, 92; Magdeburg, 89; Elberfeld, 80; Halle, 50; Krefeld, 44; Dort- mund, 41; Essen, 34; Cassel, 34; Konigsberg, 30.
THE KING OF THE COCOS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE KING OF THE COCOS. The sovereign who reigns over the smallest monarchy in the world is the King of Cocos, a group of islands near Sumatra. These islands (states the "Siecle") were discovered about 300 years ago by the captain of the Keeling, but were comparatively little known till 1825, when Mr. Ross, an Englishman, visited them, was struck by their beauty, and took up his abode there. It is his grandson, M. George Reiss, who &nbsp; now holds sway over the Cocos.
WAR MUNITIONS EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
WAR MUNITIONS EXHIBITION. There are in the world at the present time no fewer than 3000 firms employed in manufactur- ing munitions and supplies of war, and nearly a third of these (says the "Birmingham Daily Post") are American. To exhibit all, or as many of them as possible, is an effort which is to be made at the St. Louis Exhibition, to be held in that city in 1903. The idea of the managers is that the ordnance building shall not be confined to American exhibits, but will be open to the world.
A NOVEL PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
A NOVEL PROPOSAL. &nbsp; According to tlie "Birmingham Post," the &nbsp; Eton College authorities propose to build a &nbsp; classic ship, such for example, as a trireme of &nbsp; the Punic or the best Attic period, and to moor &nbsp; it in the Thames, opposite the Terrace of the &nbsp; Houses of Parliament, during the Coronation &nbsp; week. Each side is to have 30 oars, and the &nbsp; top hamper above deck is to be arranged in such &nbsp; a fashion that while the integrity of the picture &nbsp; is not destroyed, the deck can be used as the &nbsp; arena for the performance of a play of the type &nbsp; that has been acted by generation after genera- &nbsp; tion of public school boys. The craft is to be of &nbsp; English manufacture. &nbsp;
NO CHANCE OF A VISITOR FROM MARS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
NO CHANCE OF A VISITOR FROM &nbsp; MARS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Unless you have a longer than ordinary lease &nbsp; of life there is little hope that you will live to &nbsp; shake hands with a visitor from Mars. &nbsp; The fascinating possibility of communica- &nbsp; tion with this much-talked of planet has been &nbsp; given a solar plexus blow by the eminent &nbsp; astronomer, Sir Robert Ball, now lecturing in &nbsp; this country. &nbsp; The likelihood of signalling to Mars has been &nbsp; so often discussed and intertwined with such &nbsp; a network of romance and speculation that Sir &nbsp; Robert Ball's plain statement that it is an &nbsp; impossibility is causing a popular sensation. &nbsp; It is his array of figures that makes Sir &nbsp; Robert's argument impressive. Mars, he points &nbsp; out, is one hundred and fifty times as f...
AUSTRIAN JUDGE. COMMITS SUICIDE FROM FEAR OF APPROACHING BLINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
AUSTRIAN JUDGE. COMMITS SUICIDE FROM FEAR OF APPROACHING BLINDNESS. On Monday morning, December 30, one of the most celebrated Austrian judges, the Chevalier de Holzinger, waas found in his chambers at Vienna shot through the head, having committed suicide for fear that an eye disease from which he suffered would develop into total blindness. Holzinger had presided over the most impor- tant criminal cases during the last 20 years, and was reputed to be terribly severe. He had received thousands of threatening let- ters, which he collected in his private museum, together with specimens of burglars' tools. His age was 65.
Measuring the Senses. HOW TASTE, SHELL, FEELING, AND THE EMOTIONS ABE MEASURED AND WEIGHED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
Measuring the Senses. HOW TASTE, SMELL, FEELING, AND THE EMOTIONS ARE MEASURED AND WEIGHED. Even so sedate a body as the United States Education Department keeps its weather-eye open for new ideas, new mechanical contriv- ances, new apparatus likely to be of service to teacher or student. At present it has under thorough consideration a number of curious ap- pliances for measuring the senses and some of the other phenomena of the human frame. Perhaps the most important machine is one which is used for experimenting upon the blood flow and other features of the circulation. In a general way, folk know that when the brain is busy the blood is coursing vigorously through the vessels in the organ, and that in sleep, for example, the reverse is the case. This appliance is designed to furnish ocular demon- stration of the fact. It looks like a huge balance, upon which rests a shallow cradle, six feet long. NO. 1.—THE BODY ACCURATELY BALANCED. NO. 2.—WHEN THE SUBJECT BEGINS TO THINK, BLOOD...
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) The Great Unknown. A STORY OF THE SOUTH SEAS. (Continued from last week.) [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) &nbsp; The Great Unknown. —♦— A STORY OF THE SOUTH SEAS. &nbsp; By HERBERT RUSSELL (Author of "The Longshoreman," etc.) (Continued from last week.) &nbsp; Our footsteps fell as noiseless as those of &nbsp; cats upon the sooty carpet of the place. As I &nbsp; had predicted, the roof of the cavern soon be- &nbsp; came loftier: we had not gone more than about &nbsp; 20 yards when we were able to walk quite erect. The dead black walls absorbed the rays of light &nbsp; without throwing back any responsive gleam, &nbsp; and this made it difficult to guess the dimen- &nbsp; sions of the passage. But as it grew more lofty, &nbsp; so it certainly became wider; the two men moved up, one on either hand of me, and so we advanced in line. I lowered the lamp to the &nbsp; ground at every other step, to make sure of our &nbsp; footing a yard ahead, and also swung it freely...
For Woman's Eye. ARE YOU HAPPY? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
For Woman's Eye. ARE YOU HAPPY? &nbsp; Are you happy? is a rather startling question to put suddenly to anyone, but the Paris &nbsp; &nbsp; "Figaro" has ventured to make this alarming in- quiry of distinguished women workers, and the majority have replied in the affirmative, which argues strongly for giving women employment. There is one feature, however, in the replies given to this very personal question which is specially worthy of attention. It is this, that the discussion which the inquiry has raised has certainly elicited the fact that, in the opinion of women who speak from experience, happiness is not found behind the footlights. Along the other paths of labor they admittedly do find it, but followers of the theatrical and operatic pro- fessions avowedly miss it.
THE RETICULE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 15 February 1902
THE RETICULE. The reticule we have reviled—and who among us, says the "Ladies' Field," has not condemned it as a thing of old maids, a thing pertaining to a time demode?—has awoke to find itself famous. Lacking its elegant assistance we have need to write ourselves down as woefully behind the day. Pockets have a poor chance of finding their way &nbsp; into popularity again so long as these dainty &nbsp; mouchoir holders continue to find favor in our &nbsp; sight. Paris has a passing craze for expressing them in bright red leather, but such, I am per- suaded, is merely a French aberration, and one in no sort likely to have a chance over here against the quieter presentments of antelope or suede embellished with traceries of steel or diamant.
