POPULAR SCIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

POPULAR 8CSENCE Wet rope is only one-third; as tensile as when dry, and greased rope is even weaker. There are in the United States over eighty miles of railroad on which the motive power is electricity. "Waste silk has been shown to be the most effective non-conductive covering for steam pipes. The price is high, but the demand is very great. A. GUI.": A Nuremburg inventor has produced a shoe sole composed of wire net overlaid with a sub stance resembling india rubber. These soles, which cost but half the price of leather, have been tested in the German Army and found to be twice as durable. Magnus Volk has applied electricity to propel a dogcart. The current is provided by sixteen accumulators capable of keeping up a supply for six hours. The cart travels nine miles an hour on asphalt. Plumbeis should be careful not to use lead : in contact with oak, unlesj the latter is per fectly dry and free from S2p-otherwise the gallic or acetic acid in the Wood will turn the lead into acetat...

Max O'Beil. THE NOTED FRENCHMAN IN BOSTON-TITS OB- - " SERYATION3 AND OPINIONS. Tie genial Frenchman, M. Paul Blouet, or as he is bstter known, Max O Hell, whose pungent criticism and cievtr studies of the English people are well known in this country, is making a shore visit in Boston, stopping for a few days at the Parker House. M. Blouet is a heavy built man of good height, tall for a Frenchman, with a dis tinct military bearing. The latter is not to be wondered at, since he is a soldier by edu cation and experiene. He graduated from, the Eeole Poly technique, the West Point of France, in 1S67, and afterward took the course in. the cavalry school vhick was then at Metz, but since that city is no longer French territory, is now &t Fontaineblean. He fought throughout the Franco-Prussian war, coining up from Algiers to take part in it, was taken prisoner at Sedan with the Emperor, was imprisoned frr several months by the Germans and was released just in tune to go back and i...

VARIETIES. Dangers of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

VARIETIES. Dangers of tlie Beei». A derelict is anything that has been forsaken or abandoned, and, as applied to the sea, it is a vessel that has been abandoned by her crew, and left floating on the ocean. Derelicts are much more plentiful than a casual observer would imagine. Besides vessels sunknear the coast in sufficiently shallow water to make their protruding masts danger ous to passing ships, there were, on ah. average, seventeen floating derelicts in the North Atlantic reported to the Hydrographic office for each month of the year 1886. A larger number of them was sighted in the late fall, winter and early spring than during the other seasons of the year, no doubt because there were then more dangerous storms on the ocean. Some of these dcrcJicts drift around, month after month, at the will of the wind and current and are reported time after time by passing vessels. The most interesting wreck that has been reported for some years is doubtless that of the derelict schooner Tw...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. -J Ail original business, in which two sisters have established themselves,,is that of the lady's maid-at-large, to coin a phrasefor a a new trade. The elder was for a number of years maid to a woman of fashion, and established something of a reputation for style in arranging the hair, draping* the gown, decking it with flowers, and so on. She was uuable, finally, to submit to the exactions of. her mistress, and instead of looking for a new place, struck out in a more independent line. She had something of an acquaintance, acquired during her years of service, and utilized this to gather a clientage of her own. She and her sister are settled cosily in a pretty five-room flat, and the ladies whom they beautify know them respectively as, say, Mile. Rose and Mile. Marie. They are down-East Yankees, bat their Yankee sense tells them that maids must, of course, be French. If a pretty girl going to a ball, a girl who has not a maid, or whose maid is to be trusted for ordin...

THe Songs of Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

THe Songs of Ireland* On Tuesday evening last the Rev E. Rorke, B.A., delivered his popular lecture on " The Songs of Ireland*" in the Petersburg Institute Hall, axltl de spite the rather high prices charged the hall was fairly well filled. £We have since been surprised to learn that the gross takings amounted to but j07.] The chair was taken by the Rev Father Norton, who when introducing the lecturer to his audience referred to the popularity Mr Rorke had achieved as a lecturer, the interesting nature of the subject dealt with, and the land able object to which the proceeds were to be partly devoted. The lecturer commenced by an allusion to the antiquity of Irish minstrelsy. "When ages ago, minstrels from Spain landed upon the shores of Erin,they found a national music older than their own. The prevalence of music in Ireland was evidenced by the fact that alone of all national emblems that of Ireland contained a musical instru ment. Then came St Patrick, and the country was convert...

TALE. The Love-lorn Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

TALE. The Love-lorn Suicide. Theie is ho doubt that Perico's want of common sense 'brought him very near the grade of die tailed, animals; from childhood up he gave clear proofs of this fact. His mother was wont to rfcproach him with being ' a brute-beast,' and certainly that good lady, who was a devotee, never accused herself, in the confessional, of hearing false witness against her offspring. "When Perico, playing with other children, fell into difficulties v. ith them, he never thought of punishing their offences toward him, but pounded Ms own pate until he saw stars enough for a dozen skies. More than once the Senor Gnra had said of him: 'That boy has a fiendish tendency toward suicide,, and it will be a miracle if he do not give his family a fine bight one of these days.' Peiico Fad become a young man, but a bigger fool than ever, when he gave another proof that the inclination of which the Cura spoke had increased, instead of diminishing. The Senor Cura, Peiico, and others of...

A Lady Whistler. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

A Lady Whistler. ' She whistles like a bird,' the young man of the present cries of his best girl. No one looks shocked or even surprised at the ex clamation. Two years ago such a remark would have made a sensation, bnt now it is so common for young ladies to whistle, and whistle well, and so many of them are ambi tious to do the same that it can be commented upon adnirmgly, even by the most conserva tive. One of the first young ladies to introduce this practice into Chicago drawing-rooms was Miss Grace Runy"n. She is a very slight, pale-faced girl with most graceful and modest manners. She seldom conferis to exhibit her accomplishments unless her mother sits at the piano-an instrument which that lady knows how to use with wonderful effect. She always makes a gentle ' attack,' as a musician would say. Sometimes it is a waltz, often a fantas tic scrap of melody from one of the masters, now a Utile bird song, and not unfrequently one of the popular serenades. She can always be relied ...

MOUNT PISGAH PROPERTY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 24 August 1888

MOUNT PISGAH PROPERTY. TO THE EDITOR. SlB.-In your issue of August 17th, under the Leading of " Yongala Jottings," t notice a paragraph as follows :-" The sample of .tone which Mr VV. Ley avers he found upon the heights of the local Mount Piagah, and which stone assayed at the rate of 124 oz. of .ilver per ton, has proved a delusion and a snare." I contend that the ground has never been proved*; they have driven partly through tho hill, scarcely half way, and are now on a lode 15 feet wide of iron stone, with veiy good indications of silver. This lods requires sinking on before condemning the mine. I still aver that the sample of stone gives by me to Mr A, D. Bruce, of Yongala, and which is I presume that re ferred to as having been assayed, was picked op by me on the surface about 60 feet east of it on blow.

Princess Dolgroronky. Princess Dolgorouky-Jouriewsky, morgana tic wife of the late Czai of Russia, has just returned from the south of France, where she has spent the winter, writes a Paris correspon dent. Princess Jouriewsay is stilla beautiful woman, but she is growing stout, and her once perfect face shows traces-of intense suffeiing. Her magnificent brown hair, with the golden reflections, she cut herself and placed in the coffin of her husband, but her chief beauty, even now, is hair of a brighter shade, simply worn a la Chinoise." gWhen in Paris, she may be seen every day in"the Bois de Boulogne with, her children. All are very simply dressed, and they only attract attention by the gold and black livery of coachman, footman and outriders. Not a, veritable soiree has the Czar's widow given since his death, but she invites to informal dinners and receptions every week. Among her welcome guests is Princess Mathiide, for these twofamous women are on terms of great intimacy, and it...

8KE+0HE8. Totouac Myths. StTPEESTEPIONS OP A SIE&NGE TEIBE. TjVITCHCaiPT AND WBAITHS. The Totoufce Indians, inhabiting the region of Barlovento, or the central part of Tierra. Calieute, the warm lands of the state of Vera Cruz, to the northward of the port of that name, have become very much civilized and imbued with the epirit of modern enlighten ment and progress. In consequence, many of their most striking customs have become obsolete, and the tribe has lost much of its interesting picturesquenese. In some sec tions the Indians go so far as to affect ignor ance of their own language, and will reply in Spanish to him who addresses th^m in their own dialects. Many of the old superstitions are stillj.preserved, however, even among those who profess to adopt ihe.more advanced ideas, and the old rites and observances are practised, but with jealous precaution and in the secrecy of the family, apart from the eyes of prying strangers-and in this category must be included not onl...
