A SOUTHERN ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

A SOUTHERN ROMANCOE. George W. Cable s:id to. a newspaper re Ipeter the other slay: ".It is interesting that so ninmny short stories, have their scenes laid in and around New. Orleans and Loui siana. It is a romantic country. A friend in Xew Haven told me. some time since that while rummaging among some old law reports he found an account of a.slave girl who secured her freedom by learning that she had 'no coloured blood, as she had always herself sup posed. It was a noteldcase at that time,, but lout luassed from the, memory of the present generation. I appliedt to. an ex-justice of the Supreome Court of. Louisiana, and he knowc nothing of the case until he searched andfound, it in the records. The case was, first tried hi the lower court, which, de clared the girl- a slave. The Supreme Court reversed hem fading at once. Its decision substantially said that if the-girl was black that factwould be proof enoagh.of her slavery, but as she was white the girl oul not be compelled tol.po...

Rider Haggard. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

Rider Haggard. Some interesting facts respecting the author of " King Solomon's Mines" are published in a recent review. In 1S52 Mr. Rider Haggard wrote " Cetewayo and his White Neighbours," over which he lost £50. The sight of a fair face in a church at Norwood gave him, he says, an inspiration for "Dawn." The pub lishers regarded his first novel with disfavour, and the rewriting it against time very nearly cost him his Icyesight. It was produced at last, and his profits amounted to ten pounds. Encouraged by a very favourable review in the Times, he set to work on the "?itch's Head," and this tim he realised no. less than fifty pounds. In 1885 he was called to the bar, commenced his legal career in the Probate and Divorce Court, and wrote "Kiin Solomon's Mines" in the leisure evenings of his first term. He woke up one morning to find himself famous, and this time he very fortunately retained a royalty of 10 per cent. "She," "Jess," and "Allan Quatermain" were each lphenomenally sue...

REFRESHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

REFRESHMENTS. All receptions, large andsmall (says a writer in The Quee,) are designated nowadays " at homes." A sandwich supper is really quite sufficient for a small At Home; especially for those people who are in the habit of receivins their friends pretty frequently. But thlen the sandwiches ought to be many and good. As regards quantity, an average of four per head, and a few over, is a safe plan; but there is a good deal to be said on the score of quality. The first consideration is the bread. A tin loaf (double size) is the best of ordinary bread; but some bakers make a Vienna sandwich roaf, which is close, firm, and yet moist. Of course, it must be used stale. Thena sandwich ought to be neither too small nor too big ; neither coarsely large nor ridiculously small. A triangle of 2iin. is a nice size. Butter the bread carefully with the best fresh butter, if in cold weather slightly warming it. Press the sand wich well together with the hand before divid ing it. When all are r...

MRS. GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

MRS. GLADSTONE.. A correspondent of the Philadelplhia 1Ties furnishes a ion' account of "the eventful career and unselfish devotion" of Mrs. Glad- stone, from which we make the following ex tracts: WOMEN'S SPHIERE IN ENOLISII PULIC LIFE. The French have a derisive saying that there are no "political women" in England. and hence no salons in London. They hav-e no appreciation of that class of English. women. whose influence is far more important and. beneficial to society than is the corresponding class in France. But there is a social factor in English politics, unattainable by any other nation, and possibly ony under just such a form of government, and with.such a ruler as Queen Victoria has proved herself to. be. She is in a large sense the leader of the. woman movement in her country, a movement which is represented in a stricter sense by Mrs.. Gladstone, the wife of England's foremost statesman. In this movement are no.diplomats or political female deputies ; but women whso, kno...

TOM KING. (DAILY NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

TOM KING. (DsaLs sEwS.) The death of the pugilistic ex-champion, Tom King, will recall to the minds of many the curious revival of interest inl the prize ring which burst upon us to the extent of a public scandal rather more than a quarter of a century ago. Happily the excitement which resulted in the disgraceful scenes at London Bridge railway station while the special train, in the dark small hours of a December morning in 186:3, was preparing to start for its secret destination, were the last of their kind; at all events, no subse quent struggle for the championship has drawn Cabinet Ministers, hmperfectly dis guised in mnufflers and high-collared top coats, into contact with the scum and ruffianism of London, or witnessed so open and shameless a connivance on the part of the police in the preparations for an unlawful assembly. This curious resuscitation of the manners and customs of the days of "Bob Logic" and "Corinthian Tons," in the very teeth of Baron Pigott's dignified pro ...

CURIOSITIES OF AUCTION SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

CURIOSITIES OF AUCG'ION SALES. In a large room of dingy' appearame and stuffy atmosphere is a strangely mixed assembly. enated round a horseshoe table are men and women, whose keen glance and rapid fingering of goods, no less than. their rusty black, bespeak the regular at tendants at auctions. Behind them stand others of the same class - brokers,. dealers in second-hand articles, and small shopkeepers. On the fringe of this business crowd hang a few well-dressed people, who have dropped in out of curiosity, or with a desire to purchase some thing that has attracted their attention in the catalogue. In their immediate neigh bourhood hover those ubiquitous and obtru sive individuals called commission agents, the terror of unprotected ladies. They are, for the most part, Jews. Several of them meet you at the door and hold out catalogues for your acceptance. In your innocence you take one, and thank the donor, who, to your surprise, follows and stations himself at your elbow. By and by...

MAJOR BARTTLELOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

LMAJORI BARTTLELOT. In the course of an interview which the Paris correspondent of the Daily lVews has had with M.e de Brazea, the Governor of the French Congo, he said:-"I don't think that the very sweeping statements of that interpreter Assan Farran will ever tell in the least against the character of either Major Barttelot or Mr. Jameson. I don't know this Assan Farran personally, but he is a Syrian, and of a class in whom 1 place the slenderest confidence. They are, as a rule, an arrogant, offensive lot, with very little breeding, and even less probity. It is one of our misfortunes to have to employ a certain class of Syrian interpre ters; as they give themselves out to he, for want of more respectable and intelligent men. Now about Major Barttelot's bodyguard. The men who accompanied him on his gallant venture to relieve Stanley are the most treacherous, faithless creatures in the whole country, utterly devoid of manly feeling and courage. In facttheManyemi, pureand simple, are...

AT THE MERCY OF BRIGANDS EXPERIENCES OF A BULGARIAN PHOTOGRAPHER. (NEW YOUR .MV.) II. Karastojanoff, a photographer, sent out from Sophiawtome time ago to take pictures of some famous views near the monastery of Rile, in Bulgaria, has just returned without the views, but with a taleof divert and dire experiences at the hands of brigands, by whom he was captured the first time he set down his clmera. Fourteen men emergedl from the particular bit of scenery lie was about to photograph, and pointing fourteen guns at him casually renmruked. that he would avoid any danger of being shot by keeping perfectly still. Sutbsequent proceedings showed that the brigands tiought they hadl captured Stamnouloff, oneof the King's Ministers, and no protests of the poor phlotographer were sufficient to convince them to the contrary, his resemblance to the 3Iinister being marked The unfortunate masn was marchedl all nigh' througlh tihe mountains until he was ready to tlrop from fatigue.

THE UNITED STATES NAVY. (PALL MALL GAZETTE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

THE UNITED STATES NAVY. (PALL MALL OAZETTE.) It is a curious coincidence that, while Lord Charles ]leresford and other independent autho rities are showing up the shortcomings of the British army in the columns of the Pall .Iall Gazette, and while s!. Bourde, in the Tomper, is trying to prove that the adlministration of the French tMarine is as lad as bad can be, an un kindly light is being thrown by the New York press upon what it termss the alleged fleet" of the United States of America. The chances of the United States Government behing called upon to defend itself against a first-rate naval power are, of course, extremely remote. Nevertheless it is a little surprisilg that a country which has a seaboard of 13.000 miles, a mercantile marine of 25,000 vessels, and which has more spare cash than it can spend, is absolutely without the means of defending any one of its coast cities from the guns of a modern ship of battle.

SCIENCE NOTES. THE LARGEST SUSPENSION BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

SCIENCE NOTES. THE LnAIOEST 5 oSPENION BRIDGE. A Bill providing for the construction of an enormous suspension bridge acrossthe Hudson between New York City and the North New Jersey shore has been introduced in the United States Congress. The scheme is a most for midable one, as the proposed bridge, according to the design of Mr. GCstav Lindenthal, bridge builder, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will cross the river in a single span 2,860ft. in length, which is 1,310ft. longer than that of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the weight of materials used must necessarily be more than double, far surpassing in all aspects any similar structure now extant. The span will be longer than the two spans of the Forth Bridge, wlhich are only 1,710st. each. The Lindenthal Bridge will be a structure in its main features similar to the East River Bridge, except that there are double cables, one set below the other. There is a double tower on either side of the Hudson, with a single, span suspended from cables...

A Natural History Puzzle. Miss Amelia B. Edwards writes to T71 ?e rs as follows:--The following extract from a letter which I have received from a gentleman well known for his archleolosical and scientific tastes is so remarkable that I think it will be read with interest by your readers:-" I suppose you have often heard of toads being found in pieces of rock, coal, etc., when broken open by the workmen's pick. I have to-day just seen one taken out of a bed of clay on Tuesday last, the 18th inst., in a new railway cutting at present being made here. It is alive, but very inactive and semi torpid. It seems to have no bones, it is so limp, and its legs bend any way. It has two beautiful eyes, but does not seem to see. Its mouth is sealed up ; but it seems to breathe very slightly through its nostrils, though how it breathes embedded in clay it is hard to say. If it is 20,000 to 30,000 years since the glacial period when the clay was deposited, this toad goes a long wayback intohoary a...

I feel that I have at remedy that will cure disease, and I havre so much confidence in it that I authorise my agents to refund the umoney if people should say that they have not henelitted Iby its use."
