The Death of a Famous Shampooer. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 7 September 1888
The Death of a Famous Sliauipooer Johnson the English 'masseur,' accidentally silled the other day while struggling -with bis keepers in a Parisian lunatic asylum, has probably shampooed more principalities and powers than any other man that ever lived. The Prince of Wales, Lord Lytfcon, Cardinal Howard, the Emperor of Brazil, and General Beul-iuger have all (literally) paseed through his hands. Was it misanthropy begotten by his employment that drove this gymnosophist to a madhouse? Whatever may have been the case ia ancient Greece, it is certain that under the conditions of modem civilization the undrapei human frame is apt to be a humiliating object. Carlyle's Teufelsdroch chuckled gritoly at the notion of a naked House of Peers, but poor Johnson's studies in nude nobility were real, not imaginary. The habit of regarding Emperors, Princes, Cardinals, Ambassadors, and-General Boulanger, from the mere forked-radish point of view, might well beget a cynicism like that of Gulliver af...

'Albert,' said she, 'come out.' 4 No, I will not,* answered the Prince from, within; 'go away, »nd leave me alone.' The royal temper waxed warm at this. ' Sir,' she said, ' come out at once. The Queen, whose subject you are, commands you !' He obeyed immediately. Entering the room she pointed out a chair. He sat down in silence. | For a long time nothing was said. The Queen was the first to break the silence. [ 'Albert,' she said...

A WAST OF CONSISTENCY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Daring my usual evening perusal of the S. A, Advertiser of the 4thinst" leasts across a letter headed "The Legalisation of Gambling," the writer signing himself J. B. Now Sir I am not fond of writing to papers but my reason for so doing on this occasion is because the gentleman who signs his name J. B. i believe a short tame back whea writing to our local paper (The Petersburg | Times) objected to answer any letters whieJx were not fully signed by the writer or words to that effect. J. B. evidently does »ot practice what he preaches and I trust for the future he will do so for his own good. I do not wish to again open up the subject of questionable amusements, but J. B. was alsa very Strang on the point of young people of both sexes going to dances and. coming home at all hours of the night, etc., being one of the first steps to imaaoiality. How if J. B. was about (which I happen to know he was) and observed the youeg girls, and I cairn »t ...

LADIES' COLUMN Green's the wear, even for stockings-pale i green, silk clocked with white, or shot green and white embroidered with both threads. . Ellen Terry has just worn an overdress knit of pure silver thread, and a fashion writer wants to know what good American will follow ; her lead, 2nd so provide a new handiwork for her lees fortunate sisters. The latest jewel fad Is to wear loose dia monds caught to the gown by invisible pins. Queen Margarita of Italy wore at a recent ball a dress trimmed with rose petals caught in place with these eternal dewdrops. Crape spot cloth, of silk and wool, with double stripes, forming a raised spot at crossing, and laine et soie, line checks of white silk thrown up on a cream wool ground, are among the best of new stuffs for midsummer. Paris now ordains that stockings shall match the shoe instead of the costume, and in the matter of foot-gear leans largely to shoes and half-shoes of black of Swede undressed kid, with four carriage or house wea...

.Woman's Education. While colleges, and professors, andlearned men and women generally, are arguing' and wrangling concerning what is called the higher education of women, it is not to be ' forgotten that there are certain portions of education which, after all, in the great scale of -equivalents, may be quite as high, if not higher than any accomplishment in conic. sections, analytical chemistry or Greek roots; i and while these things may bs done the others ; feho&ld iiot be left undone. 3?or-ui4he first place, the art of iiffe is the = chief thing we have to learn at all, the art of beat, of taking cardofoirrsfil and of others; and "with that as well as what may be called the art of death, the art of smoothing the -way of others to the grave when that way has been so directed to an inevitable close.
