What a Tailor can Tell. THE GIVE-AWAY KINKS IN A MAN'S WEARING APPARREL. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 September 1888
Wliat a Tailor can Tell. TH-p. GIVE-AWAY KIN3KS IN A MAN'S "WEARING APPAEEEL. A careful observer can tell a man by his drees as easily as a footman is known, by his his livery. As a rule physicians carry them selves with marked dignity. They dress iu fine diagonals, with rich black Kersey over coat in ?winter. Sometimes they wear a fancy cashmere vest in hats, gloves, and boot they are unexceptional and extravagant. Their neck scarfs are the richest, and linen and cambric the finest. Lawyers, especially famous ones, are the -worst dressers in the world* They generally effect something black, and usually choose the first goods that come to hand. They seldom order a new suit until the old one grows shabby. Hats shocking! Some of the worst tiles in this town are seen on the heads of our most eminent lawyers. You can hardly get them to come and try on a suit. It must be seat to them at; once, whether it fits or not. They dont care how it looks if it goes on aosily. Prosperous business m...

CITB GCIERSLRUTG CHMS; SRBOBOO m YOKBALA CHRONICLE AHQ SOUTHERN ADVERTISER FRIDAY, OCT, 5, 1888. .Our readers will regret to hear of the approaching departure of Mr W, E. Cook, who in a few weeks will leave Petersburg for Victoria. Some few months ago membersof the congregation of St Peters church presented MrCook, who it was thought would be leaving the district about that time, with an illuminated address in consideration of the valuable services rendered by him to the church as lay leader, warden, and in many other ways. Contrary to his expectations Mr Cooke did not leave at the time and has since then been able to do more good work for the church with "which he has been so inti mately connected, and more especially in connection with the parsonage now compldted and the erection of the new church, the foundation stone of which has just been laid, he being a most energetic member of the Building Committee, Mr Cooke is now* we understand, leaving the Government service.

An Artist's Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
An Artist's ScUcsuc. Everybody has heard of Frank Millet. He paints pictures and writes magazine articles in time of piece, but when a. war is 'on'he becomes a ' war correspondent,' and is likely in turn up in the Soudan, the Transvaal, or Ime Balkans. But there was a time when he was not known. He sent pictures to ex hibitions, to be sure, and good ones, but no one paid any particular attention or said any thing1 about them. One day he conceived »n idea. Ho painted a picture of a lady iu black sitting ou a bright red sofa against a vivid yrUo w ground. Friends who saw it iu process of production expostu lated with him and a-iked him what he was going to do with it. Th-. y wore t irnply astound ed when he announcta that he was going to 8end it to the exhibition. Tin y laboured with him, but in vain. Trit-y told him that the critics would ' wipe the iioor' with him. ' They can't do thai; without mentioning me,' said Frank, quietly, ' and they've never even done that yet.' To the exhi...
LADIES' COLUMN. Fashion's' Fancles. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
LADIES' COLUMN -2 Fashion's' FjandLes. Hat brims tea inch.cs wide appear in; Lon don parks. ? It begins to be whispered that the reign of the tailor over women's gowns will shortly be a thing of the past. Crab-apple blossom, London's newest perfume, iB simply ravishing, bat mnst be used with care, as its base is prussic acid. About the prettiest of new rustic hats are made of fine corn husks, delicately braided, and neither bleached nor colored. A garment that is a basque at one side and upon the other a well-defined polonaise is among tho latest of-London caprices. Pale India silks or Bengalincs are made up over skirts of dark velvet; while light wool over surah is another favorite afternoon com bination. Pink takes the place of heliotrope among spring tints, and is especially liked in the printed stuffs that are such long favorites for house gowns. .; v - ? .

ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
ART & LITERATURE. Wilkie Collins isn't writing his reminis cences, although the publishers have been beseeching him to do so for a long time. A N65? York art dealer has iuvented a novel picture-frame. It is of broad oak, with real bars half an inch thick, colored to look like iron, eet across it from side to side. Imitation hinges on one side and a very real looking padlock on the other increase the resemblance to the barred door of a cage. With a pkivire of tho head of a lion or other beast behind it the effect is very startling, if not strictly artistic. Men whose lives arc devoted to some great work, fired with a mixtion cr burdened with a message from above, have rarely humour; those especially vho, living in early and more imaginative days tL.- ; ours, with heart and soul intent on soiue j -i'ty end, disregarded the human means, u -uutlng men but as stones, though livingtones, in the gorgeous fabric to be raised ' ad ma jorem Dei Gloriam' -or their own. Who looks fJr hu...
Things a Woman would rather die than Confess. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
Thingrs a Woman would rather die than Confess. That nineteen inches is not the size of her natural waist. That her shoes pinch furiously, and that her gloves are two sizes too smalL That she could eat more than the * tiniest mouthful of chicken.' That she didn't eDjoy the ball last night amazingly (though elie sat against the wall half the eyening.) That her dearest friend is better dre£6ed than herself. That she is looking out of. the tail of her eye for that tardy Augustus. That she will never sec five and twenty again. That she goes to church to study millinery. That she never had an offer in her life. -Judy.
Keep the Floors Warm. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
Keep t!ie Floors Warm. If the thermometer on the wall registers 74 degrees, the chances are that on the floor on a cold day it will not go above 50 degrees. How many times a day baby sits down on the floor, how many times he puts his hand down, to pick up his playthings, and whenever he does so his whole body enters a temperature of 48 degrees, or a little over. If you take him on your lap after sitting on the floor awhile you will find he is as cold as a little toad. Then another thing, eveiy time the door is open he will chill quicker than you. The cold air rashes in at the bottom and the warm rushes out at the top of the door. UntiL enough has gone out and come in to change it about the middle of the room you will not - feel it very much, while he, if he is off the floor, will be entirely in the cold air. If you try these experiments a few times you will find that the colder the day the greater will be the difference between the floor and top of the room. ^Philadelphia Tress
The Blue and the Gray. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
The Blue and the Gray. 'Tis the day of the conflict; in battle array Stand the wailing combatants-the Blue and the .Gray. From the green pasture-lands comes the lowing of herds; From the forest's deep shadows the music of birds. In warm, golden splendor the sun's slanting rays Lie over the broad fields of ripening maize. A little brook gurgles by hedge-row and thistle; A quail makes his plaint in a soft, mellow whistle. All nature is peaceful; yet here, face to face, They meet for the contest-these souls of one race! The Gray waits serenely in abatised strength . The Blue, brave and daring, advances; at length, In a sea of red clover, so fragrant and sweet, Just there, on the edge of the meadow, they meet. An attack, sharp and sudden-a noise-what is this ? A report-it is only a true lover's kiss! 'Tis a glorious capture-and thus ends the . Fray His eyes axe blue eyes, and her eyes are gray. Eva Best in Detroit Free JPresss
Ventilation and How to Secure it. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
Ventilation and How to Secure it. In ventilating-say a bedroom-"by means of the window, what you principally want is an upward-blowing current. Well, there-, are several methods of securing this without danger-1. Holes may be bored in the lower part of the upper sash of the window, ad mitting the outeide air. 2. Right across one foot of the lower sash, but attached to lie immovable frame of the window, may be hung or t&cked a piece of strong Willesden paper, prettily painted with flowers and birds if you "please. The window may then be raised to the extent of the breadth of this paper, and the air rushes upwards betvreen the two sashes. 3. The tame effect is goi from simply having a board about six: inches widft and the exact niza of the sash's breadth. Use this to hold the wiadow up. 4. The same board may have two bent or elbow tubes in it, opening upivarda ana into the room, so that the air coming through does not blow directly in. The inside openings may be protected by v...
Smoking after Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
Smokfnsr after Dinner. Whether nice women smoke or not is de batable, because eo few men will agree as to ! what the word nice means; but certainly women who highly of their own social . rank in New York city are rapidly acquiring' the tobacco habit. The outspoken pretext . for this is tho desire of the ladies to remain in tha room with gentlemen at the close of dinners, when the coffee and cigars are brought on. In private houses it is an easy matter for them to retire to another apart ment, but in tbis city the custom of giving dinners at the great restuarants is general. The residences are small and the chefs are few, so that when the average man of means wants to give what is called a banquet he orders it at one of the famous restuarants and is rid of all the bother of it as well as being-, assured of its excellence beforehand. After.the last course the cigars and cigarettes are brought in with the coffee, and the smoking begins. The story has spread that at a recent fine affair...
HINTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE, Dried Cherries. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
HINTS ^FOR THE HOUSEWIFE, Hried Cherries. TAKE the stalks from some very ripe cherries, and lay them on old trays or cloan baking tins to dry in the sun, if there be any, or, if 1 not, set the trays or tins -with the cherries on. the kitchener, -when the late diuner is over and the fire is going low, and let; hem remain there all night. Repeat this pr&lt; cess for two or three nights till the cherries are diy They will look shrivelled and be much, reduced in size; bnt this "will not matter, as they must be soaked in torpid water for a little before they are used. They should be kept tightly closed up in a tin or a covered earthenware jar, and will l o- p good all through the winter. When soaked, use them jusi; like fresh cherries. I have tested' them abroad in Germany in the open tarts, or tour ten, as they call them, often, und very good they were; but never could find out, before how they were done. -JEhpeth.
Cotton Dresses. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
Cotton Dresses. Cotton dresses are greatly favoured by girls, and exquisite many of them are. Apropos of cottons, let me give you a sug gestion, which adds immensely to the smart ness of these dresses. Pass ribbons, to match the sash, under the arm, and tie them in a loose bow, with long ends on the shoulder to form epaulets. Another addition to a white or cream dress is a waist coat, or in some cases a square yolk of moire of the color of the sash (for these moire ribbon is fast replacing the soft liberty silk, which is being more and more left to children or severe aesthetes, who, by the way, are not so dead as people fancy.} All sorts of delicate colour combinations are in vogue, such as pink (the faint coral shade) and green, pale bluo and rose colour, peach blossom and a delicate canary. All these are admirable, though the shades must be carefully assortees, as it is perfectly easy to copy a French costume literally as to colour, and yet produce an effect that would make the or...
A Thrilling Narrative. (In Three Vols.) [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888
A Thrilling Narrative. (In Three Vols.) BY CEDER LAGGAED. Vol. I.-It was midnight. Tlie pale moon was shining' with a cold, wearying light upon the housetops around Cadogan- square. The young Earl Fizzletop was asleep, and gently snoring. He snored so loud and deeply that he did not hear the soft clinging tread of a hideous reptile sliding down the overhanging braScn of a shittim-wood tree just outside his» window. ' All was silent. The reptile crept nearer and nearer to the open casement, and peeped into the room where the noble boy lay snoring. Suddenly, with a diabolical howl, the hideous monster sprang from its bougb, and a pair of white, gleaming fangs wera that* instant fastened in the pillow close to the lordling's head. Vol. II.-He awoke with a start. Two glittering eyes that shone like Bryant & May's lucifers were upon him, aud held his own gazo in a horrible fasciuation. 'Great Scott!' lio murmured, 'is fchafc a tricycle lamp I see befcre kic, or can. it be the jub...
