Barbarous Punishments. EBISOHEBS F-LOGGED AND THEIR ANKES BBOKEN. Tne North China Daiiy Neivs says:-We mentioned some days ago that an old prisoner who had levied blackmail on a new prisoner in the Che-hsien's Jail, and had flogged the new prisoner for refusing to pay, and also a man who was supposed to have informed the Ciie-hsien of the proceedings.- The Uiipao now says that the Che-hcden, or Magistrate, on taking his seat in court on Monday, first had the building well guarded by braves and runners, and then Bent for the prisoners in his gaol-there were twenty three confined thare-in batches -of four at a time. The first four said they had nothing to do with the trouble which had occurred, but that the gaoler in charge of the prison had induced the old prisoner and leader to demand money of the newcomer, and on his refusing had flogged him. Two more batches of four each and one of seven gave the same reply, when the remaing four, among whom was the leader, was sent for. The leade...

mysterious Incident in the Life of Swedenborg. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

mysterious Incident in the Life of Swcdenborg. Much has been heard lately about tho castle of Charlottenburg-, near Berlin. It was here that an incident occurred in the history of the Queen of Sweden, Louisa. Ulrica, wife of King Adolphus Frederick, and water of the celebrated Frederick King nf Prussia, which is recorded in the biogra phies of Emanuel Swedenborg, as well as in the works of eeveral well-known writers of tha period. A point io mention, because connected with the story which we are about to narrate, is the claim of Swedenborg to supernatural enlightenment, obtained sometimes by direct Divine revelation and popularly believed to be more frequently the result of communica tion with spirits of the departed. In fact, in reading some of his alleged ' revelations,' wo seem in the very atmosphere of'second sight,' as understood in tho Scottish High lands, or of the . spiritualistic' communica tion of our own day.

A Somnambulist's Freak. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

A Somnambulist's freak. A remarkable case of somnambulism has occurred in the vicinity of Truro, la. Ada Patterson arose in her sleep at midnight, attired herself in li ht summer apparel, climbed from upstairs down a post of the portico, saddled a horse and rode to a cemetery more than a mile away, where she kneeled beside the grave of her father and wept and prayed. Her hand coming into contact with a briar bush, she awoke. A moment's reflection brought her to a full realization where she was, and she fled toward the nearest house. The dogs here added to her fright, and, screaming, she climbed a tree, from which she was rescued I and taken home by friends. -Cindnnatii Enquirer.

VARIETIES. Russia's Military Resources. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

VARIETIES. Russia's Military Resources. In the official report upon Russian statistics for 1885 it is mentioned that in that year the population amounted to 109,000,000; that the birth rate exceeded the death rate by 900,000 a year, and that of 853.000 young men eligible that year for military service, only 228,000 were enrolled. Service in Russia lasts, however, for twelve years; and the total meaning of the figures is that the Russians are incomparably the mosf numerous of the white peoples, and her means of forming and renewing her army at least four times as great as that of any first class nation. If she ever produced an Emperor with military genius who was alsc ambitious, those would be serious^ facts. London Spectator.

Boston Spooks. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

Boston Spooks. The following is one of the ghost stories which are floating about in the general re vival ef all things spookish which has been upon ub for a couple of winters. The Esses are a family as well known as any going out of Boston to the North Shore, where they have a beautiful summer home. Some years ago Mrs. Ess, a charming and cultured woman, died at Hartford, where she had been staying fur a short visit. On the day of her death her family physician chanced to call at the house at the seashore to ask for the health of the absent lady, as he had heard of the illness at Hartford. He was assured that she was better and thatjj a letter received that morning pronounced her out of danger. As he was leaving the house he saw Mrs. Ess cross the lawn and enter the house by a side door. She passed within a score feet from him, but gave no sign of being aware of his presence. He returned hastily to the house, but no one had heard any one enter by the side door, which, indeed, prove...

South American Mosquietoes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

South American Mosquictocs. Some ludicrous stories are told about adventures with, mosquitoes. I Lave been solemnly assured that often when they have attacked a boat and driven its captain and crew below they have broken the windows of the cabin by plunging in swarms against them, and have attempted to burst in the doors. Although this may be something of an exaggeration, it is nevertheless true that frequently horses and cattle, after the most frightful sufferings, have died from mosqui toe bites on board the vessels. Not long ago a herd of valuable cattle were being taken from the United States to a ranch upon the Magdalena river, aid became so desperate under the attacks of the mosquitoes that they broke from their stalls, j omped into the water and were all drowned. Passengers intending to make the voyage usually provide them selves with protection in the shape of mosquitoe-bara, headnets and thick gloves, and when on deck are compelled to tie their sleeves around their wrists, ...

ODDS ANO ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

ODDS ANO ENDS. A man of action-A litigant. A stern decree--' Passengers must not speak to the man at the ?wheel.' The man who sets out to be the architect of his own fortune often lias to alter the plans and specifications. Figures never lie, but under skilful manipu lation they may be induced to prevaricate to an extent answering that purpose. Fifty thousand tons of soot are taken an ! nually from the chimneys of London. It is used for fertilizing. Recent statistics show that Germany has a ! surplus of 1,000,000 women. War in the last thing Germany should seek. Leprosy is said to be spreading at a rapid rate in Russia. The cause is the way the people live. The neglect the laws of sani tation.

The Latest Fad. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

The I/atest Fad, There has seldom been a season which floated so many dainty toilet whimsicalities. Buttons have been in cclipse. but they como out radiant. If you are a girl of the period, you fasten your bodice with flowers enamelled flowers, of course, or wrought sil ver flowers, or some other national jewellery fancy. If you are a girl of the period, too, you are known by your flowers, and you always wear the same sorts, though in dif ferent devices for different gowns. Pansy buttons are favorites, and are very pretty with their rich dark colors over the fabric of walk ing dresses or tea-gowns. Young girls wear daisy buttons or buttercups, these last being done in one instance that a Broadway jeweller tells of in pure gold. Sweet pea buttons are delicately eolored in pale pink and blue, and are exact copies of the natural flower nodding from the buttonholes up and down the gown. With a pretty summer dress of white chills there was worn a day or two since buttons of tiny green le...

The Great Adventurer. Dear Mr. Punch, [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

The Great Adventurer. Dear Mr. Punch, This is wliat has happened. She and I are really seriously attached to each other. She would make an adorable wife, and I'm sure I'm designed for domestic happiness, as I'm always falling in lo^e, which is quite beastly. It keeps me continually miserable; first, when the girls don't care for me, and secoiidiy, when they do. Bogie (I call her bogie because she has such beautiful red hair) is a perfect girl, and we should <. > - Lainly be very happy, but when, in tho most gentlemanly way, I told her father about it, he asked me a lot of impertinent questions about my income, which was really, in the worst possible taste, as he knows very well that I haven't any. However, I've written a poem which, if not entirely original, is adapted to circumstances with some skill, aud I think you will own that, even if it doesn't scan, it is quite true. The people who review books are always askiug, Why are there so many Miuor Poets ? I can tell t...

A Man's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

A Man's Mistake. * Oh, dear J I am so tiled!' ' So tired, my darling ? "Well, never mind! If s all over now, and you will never have to go through it again, you know!' The speakers were the sole occupants of a first-class carnage, in which they were rapidly whirling along toward London from the north. One was a decidedly pretty girl of some nineteen or twenty years. Not even the fatigue of which she complained could deprive her face of its piquant vivacity, and iihe very protest of weariness was uttered with a vigor, telling of considerable force still in reserve in I the slender frame. ] - Her companion was a man on the borders ] of middle age. There was a certain out-of- I door expression on his bronzed and bearded j countenance, and a general suggestion of I field sports in his largely built figure, which { stamped him at once as a country g-entlemaa. I Perhaps kindness and honesty were more I legibly written on his countenance than any 1 great amount of intelligent power. One I ...

New Anglican Church, Petersburg. LAYING OF FOUNDATION STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

IVenr Anglican Orarcli, Petersburg. LAYING OF FOUNDATION STONE, Tuesday last was an eventful day in the history of Anglican Church work in Petersburg, as on that day the found ation stone of the new Anglican church Building was laid by the very rev Dean of Adelaide, For a considerable time past the members of the congregation j have been alive to the importance of I securing a more suitable house for the worship of God, than the building that has served the purpose up to the present tune,but it was reserved for the Incum bent (the Rev W. S. Hopcraft) and the recently appointed energetic Build mgCommittee, to set about the erection of a building that when completed will be second to none of its kind in the North. The cost of the church in the ordinary way, we are informed, would not be less than £750, but by private arrangements for materials required in its construction the total has been re duced £160, so that the actual cost will not, it is estimated, exceed ^5600.

Yongala Joltings. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 5 October 1888

Yongala Jolting. My dear public! I dreamed last that Mr Newton Griffiths, THE ELOCU TIONIST, had threatened criminal pro* ceedings against the proprietor of this paper unless he amply apologised for an adverse criticism of his rendering of ' "The charge of the Light Brigade" at Yongala, and disclosed the name of the writer of the article. In my dream I begged to be allowed to make amends, and the privilege having been conceded I did in the following terms-My deaf Mr Newton Griffiths, 1 humbly apol ogise for being one of an audience who misunderstood your effort, for I know now that neither a juvenile ox, or afrog had the contract, for I find that it was an ass who was on the job, To prove my sorrow for the error and my love for yourself, I will advise you, gratis, not to again attempt to recite "The charge" when you have company. Do it when alone, for country people don't keep their knowledge and intelligence in their cellars or wells, and if you do not desire to appear more ridicul...
