A Captain's Story. SUDDEN DEATH OF A SAILOR WHOSE CORPSE WOULD NOT BE CAST OVERBOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

A Captain's Story. SUDDEN DEATH OF A SAILOR "WHOSE CORPSE WOULD NOT BE CAST OVERBOARD. ' Well, sir,' said the old captain to me retired shipmaster, with the gaze of a vulture under the apparently sleepy lid, and a face full of lines and discoloration like the .wrinkling of currents in the glassy swathes of a dead calm on some dingy spread of water off the West African coast-' I had always been a bit superstitious up to then, but I own. that lhat job cured me. But it made me see also that it isn't reasonable to be too contemptuous of one's fellow-creatures who believe in spirits and manifestations of which there is no organ, sense or quality in the human body to take notice of, saving credulity- It comes to this, sir; human nature never gets beyond a certain pass. We sail to that point, and then the wind shifts and we drop astern. From time to time it is put into us to think foolishly, that the thoughtful among us may understand how little ahead of the old folks we are in spite of ou...

TALE. The Lost Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

TALE. The Lost Conscience. Conscience was lost, but things went on as before. The streets and theatres were always crowded, men went about their business as usual, stirred by the same ambitions; and, if a good thing came in their way, each still struggled to be the first to snap it up. 3STo one noticed that something had disappeared ; that in the great orchestra of life one flute had ceased to play. Some people even began to feel themselves more free and mora at ease in their minds; they walked with a lighter step, and under stood better the joy of tripping up a neigh bor, the delight of flattering, cringing, de ceiving, lying and slandering. It seems as if all the difficulties of life had been done away with by magic. Hen did not walk the common earth: they felt them selves carried along above it; nothing affec ted them, nothing made them stop to think. Everything, present and future, seemed to belong to these happy people who had lost conscience without even knowing their loss. It...

Cut v. Whole Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Cut v. W!«o5e Potatoes. It seems reasonable to conclnde, as does the Ohio Experimental Station, tliat whole pota toes do better for seed than ssngle eyes or any form of cutting. And yet it cannot be denied that most excellent crops have been produced by the use of cut seed. There is undoubtedly more in the soil, and particularly the pre paration and condition of the soil, than in the cut or uncut seed, other things being equal. The seed, of course, may be injured by being kept in too low a temperature dining winter, or by sprouting too early in spring, either of which will reduce the vitality and shorten the crop ; but if the tubers are perfect and the soil just right single eyes rightly managed wiil leave little or nothing to be complained of in the way of turn out. What is wanted is a good, etroag bud, which in the proper soil will soon come to take care of itself and make a healthy, prolific plant; and one of the best ways to produce such buds is by spreading the potatoes for a f...

FARM AND GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

FARM AND GARDEN A MESMERIC PLANT.-A plant grows in Mixteca, Mexico, which the natives call the 'herb of prophecy.' A dose of it produces sleep similar ia all respects to tlie hypnotic state. The subject answers with closed eyes questions that are put to him, and is com pletely insensible. The pathologic state brings with it a sort of prophetic gift and double sight. Furthermore, lie loses his will, and is completely under the control of another. On returning to himself he remembers nothing ot what he has done. -Boston Journal.

Somnambulism. WHAT PEOPLE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED WHILE SLEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Somnambulism. PEOPLE HA.YE ACCOMPLISHED WHILE SLEEPING* Somnambulism in its simplest form is seen when persons talk in their sleep. They are plainly asleep and dreaming', yet the connection, ordinarily broken, between the physical organs and the image passing' through the miod is retained or resumed in whole or in part. It is very common for children to talk more or less in their sleep; also many persons who do not usually do so are liable to mutter if they have over eaten or are feverish or otherwise i!L slight movements are very, frequent. Many who do not fancy that they have ever exhibited the germs of somnambulism groan, cry out, whisper, move the hand or foot or head, plainly in connection with ideas passing through the mind. From these incipient manifestations of import ance somnambulism reaches frightful in tensity and almost inconceival compli cations. Somnambulists in this country have re cently perpetrated murders, have even killed their own children; they have carried fur...

Captured Seals. THEY ARE SENT TO EASTERN MUSEUMS—THE DANGERS OF SEAL HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Captured Seals. THEY ABE SENT TO EASTEBN MUSEUMS-THE DANGERS OF SEAL HUNTING. Captain Thorold Friday shipped eleven seals captured at the Fara llones to various museums East. They 'will make the trip in tanks of gea water, fourteen sea-lions in all were captured by the sailors under the captain, but two| escaped at the wharf by driving off the schooner when released, and another was killed in a fight with, a fellow seal in the hold. The animals are captured by sailors, who creep upon them when asleap, throw a sack over their heads and tie their flippers. Karl Hansen, one of the men, attempted to capture an aged, gray-bearded brute and fail to 'get the sack securely over his head. The animal shook him off, attack ed him and bit half of one of his hands off before another sailor could come to the rescue. The lion' was shot in the neck, but managed to escape into the water.

The Weather and the Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Tlie Weather and the Crops. The agricultural outlook in the north and north-east at the present time is a most serious one, and the prospects of the coming harvest are the very reverse of encouraging. M.O- Banaigan who during the past few days has been driving through the hundreds of Nackara, Paratoo, Coglin and Caven agh informs us that the scene presented i in this district is a most desolate one. j In the majority of cases there is no sign of a crop at all, and though towards ' Dawson and again near Petersburg a f^w patches of wheat are to be seen, these are coming out in ear, whilst the flag is dying away. Farmers have in many instances to travel a distance of more than ten miles for water and the fact of Finlay's dam and other water holes having run dry, is causing a great deal of distress. Water supplies for a large district; are now obtained from White's well and Nackara Springs, and the scene daily witnessed at the latter place is said to re semble a fair, the number of farm...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

LADIES' COLUMN Among serviceable petticoats nothing is better than those of biscuit ealico, v ish three flounces embroidered in self color. Tailor made parasols to match gown and bonnet are among the last suggestions of the enemy, of which good dressers will be ware. A boon to bedraggled humarity is the waterproof silked umbrella that dries itself with a single shake, and which is too new to have as yet got the general use it deserves. London's craze just now is Peking inch wide stripes in stuffs of cotton, wool, «illr or linen ; and if the effect is not given by con trast of color it is brought about ia the man ner of weaving. Gowns of white pongee have the blouse and full sleeves deeply honeycombed and a deeply honeycombed panel at the side as well, or else they are trimmed with many lengthwise TOWS of lace insertion Big hem-stitched handerchiefs of pan gee can be had in nearly all the summer colors and are amongst the most useful of small wraps, as they can be either shawl, colla...

Love and Hate. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Love and Hate. Look you, the man whom you hate are there not women who worship him; child ren. who look up to him ? Who sees the true man, jou who hate him orthey wholovehim? Love is a divine delight, it reaches out over and around its object into the illimitable, it is a part of the over-soul of the infinite, of God. Hatred is painful, it strains and rocks the body, it blinds the vision, it makes man conscious of his mortal limitations. Love sees the virtues that are of the soul, hatred only the diseases of the skin. ' All men have their faults, and stealing was Bill's,* said a weeping widow over the corpse of a desperado, shot in attempted burglary. And grotesque, ludier ous as the expression may seem she was right. She knew that not in the robber the law breaker, the outcast, did the real man shine forth, but in those rarer moods of kindliness and generosity when he was the true friend arid husband. Perhaps when two enemies, who h sre refused to see any good in each other on the ...

THE DALHOUSIE PROPERTY. TO THE EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 September 1888

I THE DALHOUSIE PROPERTY. lo THE BDITOB, DEAR SIS-I was very much surprised when I heard that the Dalhoasie syndicate had decided to suspend all operations on their property, and more particularly so after having had the pleasure of visiting it on the 18th inst., when I had the opportunity of thoroughly and carefully inspecting all their workings, and of examining the physical and geological formation of the country, and I must say that after mature consideration I cannot come to my other conclusion but what they are in possession of a valuable property, and that it only requires a little capital and labour, combined with wise and judicious management(not mismanagment)to open up and develop a good paying dividend mine, being a source of wealth to the share holders, and a great benefit to the district. I might state that I also had the pleasure of visiting Mr Ward's copper mine which is situateda little east of north of Golden Gully, and there is no' question but what he has got a ve...

SKETCHES. Sight In Savages. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 September 1888

8KETCHES Sight la Savages. In some hot humid forest districts, the European who should attempt to hunt or ex plore with bare feet and legs would be pricked or lacerated at almost every step of bis pro gress, and probably got bitten by a serpent before the day's end. Yet the Indian passes his life there, and, naked or half naked, ex plores the unknown wilderness of thorns, and has only his arrows to provide food for himself and his wife and children. He does not get Eierced with thorns and bitten by serpents, ecause his eye is nicely trained to pick them out in time to save himself. He walks rapidly, but he knows every shade of green, every smooth and crinkled leaf, in that dense tangle, full of snares and deceptions, through which he is c bliged to walk; and much as leaf resembles leaf, he sets his foot where he can safely set it, or, quickly choosing between two evils, where the packless and thorns are tendereet, or, for some reason known to him, hart least. In like manner he disti...

Daring the last year or so, says an ex change, we have beard a good deal about protecting ^and encouraging local industries, and radical alterations have been made in the tariff with a view of galvanising into new life the struggling manufactures of the colony and creating new industries. Protection has been the watch-word, and the hope of thousands of our colonists, and to such an extent would some of them have carried out their views that prohibitive customs duties would have been imposed, on everything winch could .be made or pro duced in the colony, no matter what the cost. A moderate system of pro tection has been adopted, and we do not think anyone will dispute that it has had a beneficial effect on the manufac turing industries of the colony. There is however, oue kind of protection which is, unfortunately not very much approved of in country distr...

The Umbrella in Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 September 1888

Tbe Umbrella in Britain. Previous to the reign, of Queen Anne (a.d. 1702 to 1714) the umbrella was a luxury practically undiscovered in these rainy isles. That it was not quite unknown must be inferred from the fact that In the Harlem. MSS. (No. 603) in the British Museum, a Saxon king is represented as having an attendant who holds an umbrella over his head. Nevertheless, in the time of James I. they were still regarded only as strange things from far countries, which furnished the theme for several poems. Thomas Coryat in Lis " Crudities" (published 1611) describing sundry remark able things he had observed during his travels, tells how some Italians carry fans, but others carry objects of "far greater price, that will cost at least a ducat {i.e. about 6s.) which they commonly call in the Indian tongue umbrellas, that is, things that minister shadow unto them for shelter against the scorching heat of the sun. These are made of leather in the form of a little canopy, and hooped in-...
