GOOD EGGS AND BAD ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
GOOD EGGS AND 'BÀr> ONES. j MANT people do «ot know the difiero noe between an inferior,, egg an4 a good one, or an eggfrom a healthy hen aud;ono from an unhealthy one. ; A 'good egg when broken does not run ail over the.plate, or have noy .watery ,thin white.,. It retains its forra, and offers, resistance when beaten up. The inferior egg spreads at once, and has a cer- tain amount ofthis: watery substance, which runs from'it directly it is.dropped on to tho piafé. "When very'poor-that is from half starved hens--dbe whites take a long time to raise or froth, and in some, cases, they won't rise afc all. Many people are under the'impression that all egg;s are equally healthy and nutritious, no rnatter what tho liens feed OD. This is a mistako. Ir. hus been proved by actual tee's that there is no animal whose stomach communicates quicker or more directly with its products than the hen'. . A whole bunch of eggs in embyro will become .impregnated with the contents of the gizzard or st...

BANDIT SHOT AT A PRAYER MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
BANDIT SHOT AT A PRATER MEETING. A curious story of a fight with desperadoes comea from Wheeling, West Virginia.

VARIETIES. THE ARTFUL SPORTSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
--. THE ARTFUL SPORTSMAN. A sporting gentleman, who had th© reputation of being a very bad shot, invited some of his friends to dine with him. b Before dinner he showed them a target painted on a barn door, with a bullet right in the bull's-eye. Thia ho claimod to havo shot at five hun- dred yards' distance. As nobody believed him, he offered to bet the price of an oystor supper on it, and, on ono of his guests accepting the wager, ho produced two witnesses, whose veraoity could not be doubted, to prove his assertion.' Since they both stated that ho had done what he claimed, he won his bet. ' During dinner tho loser of the wager in- quired how the host had managed to fire: euch an excellent shot. The host answered ; 4 Well, I shot the bullet at the door at a distance of five hundred yards, and then I painted the target round it.' >,
CLEANING OLD OIL PAINTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
OLEANIHG OLD OIL PAINTINGS. Remove the &lt;. painting from tue frame, dust it , well,, take, a .freshly 't put raw potato and rub it all over tho painting to begin, then drop working with the potato and pro-' ceed to rub of? tho old discoloured varnish, using the soft part of the fingers and thumb of your right hand ; you will soon find that a light rubbing with the fingers loosens and raises the varnish till it comes off eaßily in a powdery stuff. You should only worn: at about a foot square or lesa of the canvas at a time, and always keep in mind that tho object in view is to remove tho varnish evenly all over tho picture. To do this woll re- quires no small amount of care and patienoo, but it is tho safest and easiest method of working. Tho groateflt amount of caro ia required as you work down nearly to tho colours, for those you must not touch, but merely remove the old varnish from them, and when all the painting is thus deaned re-varnish it with the best mastic varnish...
DEAD MEN AS TARGETS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
DEAD MEN AS TARGETS. The Morgue in New York is no less grim than the moro notorious dead-house in Paris. Looked up privately for ear tain hours of the night, undisturbed and alone, would bo to most a weird, if not maddening, experience. To carry with you into the charnel house guns and pistols for practice upon human targets suggests the conduct of a morbid lunatic. Yet this was going on at the New York Morgue for many months with the permission of the warden, who delivered up to the gunner the keys of the place, and furthermore added from time to time a few pauper corpses to give variety to tho target practice. One day not loog1 ago the 1 New York Herald' startled America with the news of this strange exploitation of the dead, and the story, you may bo sure, made a sensation ; it was told with thrilling effect and noisy headlines. And now comes "the sequel in a reui.srkbblo book by Dr. Charles Phelps, entitled * Traumatio Injuries of the Brain and its Membranes.' He was no morbid l...
MAKE-UPS: [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
MAKE-UPS: Many ol tha white horses soon in the parks and other fashionable localities owe their purity of ooat to-powder. The animal is eat of ally groomed, and washed with, a peculiar soap or cream (usually the latter), after whioh a powder, dainty aa that used by a sooiety belle, is assiduously rubbed on by skilful hands, the thiokinesa of the cream causing this to adhere tbiokly. A ohamois oovered paste then polishes the skin until it glistens like ivory, and the surface ia white aa new milk. One lady in London occasionally rides a palfrey of virgin purity, whioh is thus made up every time its mistress elects to take the air. Not only ia the hide powdered, but mane-and tail undergo a bleaching procesa whioh renders them perfectly white--thia latter being performed onoo monthly. A black oirclo under the eyes and continued beyond the outer edge, theatre make-up fashion, brings out tho firo and biillianoy of the pupil, and attention is given to nose and /hoots. By an artistio prooes...
SEVEN HOURS WITH A SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
SEVEN HOURS WITH A S ff ARK. While my ship lay iu the harbour of one of the South Sea Islands 1 determined one Sun- day morning to have a plunge. Having got permission and a loan of the dingy, I pulled ont to sea a mile or BO, and, seleoting a jquiet spot to leeward of a small island, I anohored the boat, and was soon in the water. After a while I swam out - to a rook about two hundred yards seawards. It was only A small rook with a flat top, and, on reaching it, I olimbed up to rest. When I thought it time to return, I prepared to take a header, ' but only just in timo observed a big shark, or else £ really believe I should have ¿one straight down its throat. I did all mortal man oould do, in the oir oumstanoes, to scare that fish. Yelling and gesticulating were no use, and dodgiag from one side to the other no better ; the monster wouldn't move, but, sailing slowly round, he seemed to be enjoying the fun, which was more than I was. After some hours of this amusement I had to lie d...
POINTS FOR PEDAL-PUSHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
POINTS FOR PEDAL-PUSHERS. There aie several things you can clo on. your bicycle that people imagine you can't. For instance, you can leave your bell at home and ride anywhere without anything, not even an instrument to produce that ' squeak-squeak* wo know so woll. The law" only compels n cyolist to give warning of his approach within a certain dietance, and he oan do this with a whistle or a yell if he likes. Tho bell is only a labour-saving contrivance. You can hire a bike for hours on a Sunday and then refuso to pay tho man. Try it, but don't, blame us if the man in his ignorance of tho law gives you a sound kicking. If you are under twenty-one, by the way, you needn't pay auvday of tho week. "J 4 Keep to the left' is only a police regula- tion, and not an order by law. You oan go to the right if you think proper, but if there is an accident you are responsible. The law here is very complicated, however, and under some circumstances even if you are on your wrong side of the road,...
TONS OF RUSTY RIFLE BARRELS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
TONS OF RUSTY RIFLE BARRELS. J Aa Volunteers know, the new magazine rifle has its disadvantages. 'One of the greatest of these is the immediate clean sing after firing, to prevent the 'fouling' cor- roding the barrel. The temptation is to stand the rifle np in tho corner and 'forget it. Even Tommy Atkins succumbs to this, with the result that tuero are some hundreds of tons of rusty, condemned barrels from 'tko regulars, eaoh costing originally about ¿1 apiece, lying in gigantio heaps in the Arsenal yards. The day of reckoning with the Volunteers is now at hand, with the rapidly approach- ing annual inspection of aims, ani some careless corps will find comfortable little sums Btanding against them fos condemned, rifles. One metropolitan oorps has already had to pay £73 on this aooount, while, a big provincial corpa recently reoeived a littlo oil! from the War Offioe for £189. " ;"
The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1898. ON the eve of his departure to the Mel- bourne Convention, Mr. Reid sprung a sur- prise upon the country. He confided to press representatives that in his opinion a plebiscite of the electors should be taken, and probably would be taken, on the fiscal ques- tion and the proposal of Upper House re- form, but that the reference should not be made during the "turmoil that must attend the general election and should, therefore, be postponed until sometime after that event." This statement puts the probable and, indeed, only possible issues of the coming campaign in a queer light. The Oppositionists have declared in favor of the repeal of the Land and Income Taxes and the inauguration of a Protectionist policy as the main planks of their fighting platform ; and Mr. Reid has plainly stated that he will appeal to the people for authority to reform the Upper House that one-fifth of the members will re- tire every five years, subj...

SCIENCE. THE LATEST IN SURGERY. A novel operation was perfoimci in Dub- lin. A man named Ryan, who had been discharged, from the Army and suffered from ophthalmia, having lost his eyelids, had the eyelids of a newly killed pig stitched into the place where his own had been. The opera- tion was performed by Drs. Maxwell, Mooney, and Large, of the Eye and Ear hospital. This, it is said, is the first opera- tion of the kind ever performed in the United Kingdom, and the surgeons hope for a suc- cessful result.
TRAVELLER. TO THE POLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 22 January 1898
TRAVELLER. TO THE POLE. The great desideratum in selecting the route for Polar exploration is the presenes of land trending to the northward, says Ad- miral Markham in the ' North American Review.' So long as this can be found so sure is it that its northern termination, how- &nbsp; ever far it may be situated, will be reached. This particular condition, so far as we know &nbsp; to the contrary, is to be found in Franz Josef Land, for Lieutenant Payer has stated that &nbsp; he saw high land to the north of the posi- tion which he reached and which he esti- &nbsp; mated to have been situated in latitude 63 &nbsp; deg., and thus from the configuration of the land thus seen, taken in connection with the coast along which he was travelling, it is more than probable that Franz Josef Land &nbsp; extends a considerable distance beyond the &nbsp; furthest land that has yet been discovered. Taking all things into consideration, it seems...

CLEANING BOTTLES. The greasy bottles correspondents are 'baffled by' or 'unable to clean satisfac- &nbsp; torily' ought first to be well wiped within and without, using either dry tow or dirty cloths, or rags will serve as well; continue &nbsp; wiping off all the grease you can possibly remove, and change the greasy tow or cloth constantly for such as have no grease upon them, then with a strong solntion of wash- ing soda, or better still pearl-ash, you will quickly rid them of all greasy traces ; finally rinse well with clean water, and turn them up ; drain, and dry.

CHAPTER IV. THfl UNEXPECTED HAPPBNB. It has fallen to me to tell it,-to me, Arthur Jervis. When Miss Selby spoke as she did and turned away, I confess that my heart sank for tho moment. I knew that ehe had told Alioe her history then, and I anew that she had failed to stir any memory of the past. She had failed,-I could seo it in tho poor old lady's faoe, and hear it in tho tono of her voioe ; and «he had baen so certain of suoooss that I had begun to feel con fido nt too.
