PART II. A fortnight bad passed by, and bo far al^' had gone well. All bad gone specially wel .with Nancy. From the very day of her ar rived her health had began to improve. The*6 had been no difficulty in keeping her oat of the eight of everyone, servant's included. Jasper'6 nurseries were close to his mother's bed-room, and a curious old winding stair led directly from these rooms to the guard- j room and the entrance of the castle. When Lina had been a few days at Bam- j borough, and had found oat the ways of the j place, sho gave Nancy this order: When you j go out with Jasper-you must of course never go out without him-take him to the ; ugly part of the sands where none of us ever go. It is all the same to Mm wherever he goes, so long aB he has his spade, and you will be quite out of the way there. Promise me Nancy, never to go anywhere else.' Nancy promised and kept her word.

Fitting a Lady. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Fitting a Lady. ' It is a good deal more trouble to fit a lady than you would imaagine,' said a fashionable ladies' tailor, as he sat in his elegantly fur nished office and motioned a servant to bring a chair for his visitor; ' because, you see, ladies are very peculiar. How are ladies measured f Well, first they take off their outer waist, leavingjthe neck and arms bare. Then the fitter measures them from the collar to the waist at the back; the width of the back is taken at its widest and narrowest parts, the front from the base of the throat to the waist, next from the under arm to the waist, and then the size of the throat is taken. After that we take the measurement of the bust, waist, and hips. That done, the inside length of the sleeve is taken, aud the circumference of the biceps. The measure of the skirt is next taken-up, down, and around. Then we have three fittings. First in the rough, second with more perfect lin ings, aud lastly when everything is completed. Some ladies...

PART III. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

PART HI. After five weeks at Bamborough Lin&onoe more congratulated herself on the success of her visit. The Prendergasta had been uni formly kind, and she was almost certain that they were going to aBk her and her husband to stay longer than the original six weeks. Best of all, Nancy's health appeared to be completely restored. She who when she first came had crept about looking so pale and delicate that it seemed cruel to ask her to climb the steep hill to the castle ttrice a day with the boy, had blossomed like a rose, and could have danced up that hill had it been necessaiy. .How well you look, darling?' said Mrs. Forrester on that morning when she had so joyously counted up her gains. * Coming to Bamborough has entirely cured you, and I must say you have borne your dull life here like an angel. Where are you going now ?' For Nancy in a light blue print dress and a little sailor's hat was standing as if ready, poised to take flight to some place where she very much wishe...

Dress and Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Dress and Economy. "Writing on ' Dress and Economy,' in the July number of long man's Magazine, Mrs. Henry Reeve gives us some very remarkable ' facts and figures and other data for the con struction of a scale of expenditure and of ratio to income of the cost of clothes.' The writer has evidently been at much pains to collect these 'facts,', etc., from various informants, and though these latter often prefer to give tl).e house-rent they .pay, rather than the in come they possess, jtheir information is sur prising enough. .One-lady, who has a * small income of eight hundred pounds sterling a year,* finds thirty pounds sterling enough for her dress. Another who, with her husband, enjoys an income of fifteen hundred pounds sterling (no children), spends only fifty pounds sterling on her dress, while her husband's averages twenty-six pounds ten shillings sterling per annum. Again, a professional man with ' two thousand pounds sterling a year to spend,' gives his two daughters forty po...

Madame Bernhardt and Her Creditors. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Madame Bernhardt and Her Creditors. One of the many actions between Madame Bernhardt; and her creditors was decided against her in Paris on Saturday. The huissier of her creditors, having been author ised to seize her personal property in her mansion, had, after a diligent search (says the Standard correspondent) succeeded in discovering the following valuable articles a tame monkey in a cage, a coffin, a life-size portrait of Rachel, and, lastly, about two thousand pounds' worth of silks and satins and theatrical costumes. Mr. Grau, the fair artist's impresario, contended that these articles were his property; but the court held the seigure to be valid, and ordered the goods to be impounded as security for the debt, which amounted to 8,0001. The Journal du Harve has found the acte de nais. sance of Sarah Bernhardt. She was born in 1843 at Harver. Her mother was the daughter of a Berlin oculist, and her father was a government official, who afterwards committed suicide. Sarah's orig...

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Wine is now aged by electricity, the wine by this means acquiring all the bouquet of old wine. 8 According to Pasteur and Chamberlaniy typhoid bacillus is in ninety-nine cases out 01 a hundred communicated through drinking water. A workman in the Carson Mint has dis covered that drill points, heated to a cheery red and tempered by being driven into a bar of lead, will bore through the hardest steel or plate glass without perceptibly blunting. The omnipresent microbe has been detected in boils. . This discovery shows that the method of poulticing is wrong, as the heat and moisture aid the devolopment of the microbe. An antiseptic treatment is best. Sulfonal is the name of a new hypnotic used to produce sleep. The average dose in the beginning is fifteen grains, which may be gradually increased to sixty grains. It promises to be especially useful in the treat ment on mental disorders. An argument against allowing...

dottinss. By our Yongal* Correspondent. For mental saurkraut and oral swill commend me to the remarks made by a Mr Lambert on the occasion of the laying of the foundation stone of the Anglican Church at Petersburg. «It was a gratifying thing to find that th# Dean was so ready to leave the city for the wilds of the North, and lay the fonn dation stone of a church in a place that had only been civilized for a few years, and that in many respects was hardly civilized now" said Sir Oracle Yes, it is wonderful that- the Dean could endure travelling 154 milewCin a comfortable railway carriage, and. barely there will be a special prayer meeting to ask for his recovery. And sdjpoof Petersburg is * hardly civilized now." My effeminate heart emits great .-glob ules of sanguineous fluid when 17 t^ink of it. Oh darling Petersburg^ lay to be civilized!

Superstitions at Monte carlo. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Superstitions at Monte carlo. At Monte Carlo the players who stake their fortunes on the turn of a wheel have many queer superstitions. They believe money that has been rubed on a corpse, particularly that of a suicide, to possess some potent charm, and when some months ago, an old Italian who had lost his last centime, leaned back in his chair and shot himself through the heart, his fellow gambles flocked round to rub their money on the dead man, and insisted on the game proceeding almost before the corpse could be carried away. If a crosseyed person comes in to play at their table they will leave it in disgust. They also believe there is luck in the innocent hand of a child, and one sees frequently sweet little children brought in by their mothers and grandmothers, and held up to the table with their tiny hands full of gold to be wagered on some chance of the same.

THE MURDER OF MBS DALEY AND THREE CHILDREN. Id the city of Chicago in 1876Mrs Daley and two children were brutally murdered; for weeks no clue was found, and it seemed as. il the murderer would go unpunished, A public entertainment of clairvoyancy etc., was ^givenat one of the balls, and daring the Clairvoyant Seance, when the lady was answering the mental questions of people in the audience, Detective Allen thought "Who hilled the Daley family ? " The1 Clairvoyant described the murder ip allita horrible details, and stated that Mrs Da&y's husband, in a fit of jealousy, had killed his wife and children. £be gave such minute particulars that Allen was convinced.

Spraying an Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Spraying an Orchard. A year ago I determined to experiment in the spring, with arsenal poisons, but the bloom was soon so light that I hesitated to incur the expense. Finally I concluded to treat one orchard, at least. I therefore ordered a Lewis combination force-pump and a quantity of London purple for the purpose. I then took the heads out of two fifty-gallon barrel, and after boring a large nole in' each of them, in which I kept a stick for stirring the mixture, I put them in for floats. I then placed the barrel in a waggon and filled them as nearly full of water as practicable -say about forty gallons in each. A pound of London purple was then mixed in a pail of water and divided between the two barrels and stirred until the poison was well mixed with the water. I found that two men were needed for tie work-one to drive and keep the pail or tub in which the pump worked filled, and the other to use the pump. The driver was directed to drive very slowly along one side of the row ...
