Nothing Serious. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

Nothing Serious. In the ward of a large hospital, Donald was lying at death's door. The wardsraaa, a "bl ither Scot," watched him as the end approached. The doctor, a kindly old man, said to the watcher: "This is a curious case. The man has nothing organically wrong with him, but he is just slipping away because of a fatalistic be lief that this illness would terminate his earthly existence. Nothing but some powerful shock would rouse him." "Weel, that dings a'," said Peter. "I am laith to see him ca'd for for want o* a shock. Doc tor. wull ye let me try and bring him back ?" "Yes; you can do no harm, if no good," replied the doctor. » With that permission, Peter called in a bosom friend of his—an artist on the bagpipes. He contrived a screen at the foot of the bed, where the piper could play unobserved by the patient. Thee he signalled to the piper, who commenced softly with "Ye Banks and Braes." Presently the £emi-conscious man stirred uneasily. The piper glided into the air, "The...

CHURCH AND HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

CHURCH AND HOTEL. It is an old, and to a large extent a true, say-   ing that wherever there is a church a public-   house will be found near by; but it is not a com-   mon occurrence for a church and an inn to be   linked together by the bonds of ownership.   Windsor (England), however, has provided a   remarkable case of this kind, for it transpired   in the police court the other day that a certain   licensed house, abutting on the very walls of the   Parish Church of St. John, was left in 1603 to   the vicar and churchwardens of Windsor on con-   dition that the money derived therefrom should   be distributed to the poor.     As though to accentuate this singular connec-   tion, it happened that the present vicar, the   Rev. Mr. Ellison, is a son of the founder of the &a...

The Last of a Great Cricketer. STORIES TOLD ABOUT BRIGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

The Last of a Great Cricketer. THE LAT E JOHN BRIGGS WHO DIED AT MANCHESTER ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 11. STORIES TOLD ABOUT BRIGGS.     "There is an important member in the Lanca- shire Eleven who could and would supply any deficiency in humor. He has enough for 10. This   is that Johnny Briggs, the inimitable and un- defeated. He beams upon you before and after your innings. He inquires with feeling after your health and form. He rubs the bail in the dust, takes two steps, and serves you a fast yorker instead of the high-tossed slow you ex- pected. You retire. He smiles. What could be pleasanter?" Thus wrote Mr. C. B. Fry in "Giants of the Game" some years ago. But "J.B.'s" smile—once as famous as bis high, long hop—will never be seen in the cricket field again, nor those frolic- some ways of his which more than once threw fashionable Lord's into convulsions of laughter. At his best the late Mr. John Briggs was gener- ally regarded as the cleveres...

What a chance for manoeuvres for First Australian Mounted Infantry! Un- happily impossible. Rifles and lordliest life on earth must give place to preposterous cricket match.   Vast crowd of spectators. Possibly arid, but apparently not incurious. Very odd! Presently English captain appears, pushing his men raw to the battle. In other words, our side in first. Around them stand a band of little people, few but apt in the field. Good fielding essential, I am told. I notice there are only eleven of them. It seems a small number! But, as events p...

Men Most Talked About. AS AUSTRALIA'S AMBASSADOR IN LONDON. WHO WILL BE THE HIGH COMMISSIONER? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

Men Most Talked About. AS AUSTRALIA'S AMBASSADOR IN LONDON. —♦— WHO WILL BE THE HIGH COMMISSIONER? Four men are most persistently talked about as the probable Hlgli Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Australia in Lon don. The position would be largely ambassa dorial. It is impossible now to delay the appointment much longer. The men from among whom the selection is almost certain to be made are Sir John Forrest, G.C.M.G. (Minister of State for De SIB MALCOLM ll'EACHABN, M.H.R. ( fence), Mr. B. R. Wise, K.C., M.L.C. (Attor ney-General of New South Wales), Sir Laug don Bonython, M.H.R. for South Australia, and Sir Malcolm M'Eacharn, M.H.R. for Melbourne City. Whenever questioned on this matter, Mr. Barton's invariable reply Is that nothing will be done until the bill creating the position is passed. As this session cannot last many more months, the bill should within a reasonable tim& become law. That being done, who will get the position—prac tically the highest and most des...

THE LARGEST SALARY IN THE WORLD. DRAWN BY ONE MAN. THE REMARKABLE STORY OF MR. CHARLES M. SCHWAB. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

THE LARGEST SALARY IN THE WORLD. DRAWN BY ONE MAN.   —♦— THE REMARKABLE STORY OF MR. CHARLES M. SCHWAB. The arrival of Mr. Charles M. Schwab in Europe and his doings at Monte Carlo are arousing more attention than the visits of many kings (says the "Daily Mail" of January 16). And with rea- son. For Mr. Schwab represents to-day more actual power in the affairs of the world than any but two or three of the greatest monarchs.   He is the steel king, enjoying an income at which the revenues of the kings of smaller States pale into insignificance, and holding in his hands absolute power over an army of 400,000 adult and able-bodied men. Twenty-two years ago he was a simple work- man, employed on the hard labor of stake-driving, and earning a salary of 24s a week. To-day he has his mansion in Fifth-avenue, New York—the street of millionaires—and his palace in the coun-   try. His income is, in salary and commission alone, apart from his personal inv...

SAN FRANCISCO AND CHAPERONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

SAN FRANCISCO AND CHAPERONS. —♦—         "All unmarried females of means and position are chaperoned here," says Geraldine Bonner in a San Francisco paper. "Age does not matter. They are spinsters—that is enough. No tender maid of 30 goes unattended in California. No single woman of any age goes to the theatre alone with a man, and as for 'buggy riding'— the custom in unknown. No girl goes to a res- taurant for lunch with a youth she has known from the cradle. It would not be correct. And it would not be entirely correct either for her to get another girl. No; she must have the cha- peron—the tried and seasoned veteran of matri- mony—or else the proprieties will be split up the back. The ardor with which the cult of the chaperon has been taken up in the West should make the thoughtful pause. At the rate we're going at we shall soon be where they are in France, and it will be hopelessly compromising for any of us to walk two steps i...

BICYCLE V. TIGER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

BICYCLE V. TIGER. A race for life on a bicycle from a man-eat-   ing tiger sounds more like a passage from a   novel of adventure than it does like an ac-   tual event. Yet Monsieur H. Rosny, French   author, traveller, and sportsman, claims to   have taken part in just such a race in the Malay   Peninsula. He says:—   "A bicycle gleaming under a shed caught my   eye that first morning at Nieuwenhuys planta-   tion. I could not resist the temptation—I   had not ridden since leaving France. So I   sped along the rice and coffee fields for about   six miles, until I found myself in the heart of a   forest. While I was enjoying the beauty of the   place there was a crunching of branches, and   I became conscious that something massive but   light-footed was approaching. Thirty yard...

An Empire Achievement. UGANDA WITHIN THIRTY HOURS OF LONDON. A REMARKABLE UNDERTAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

An Empire Achievement. UGANDA WITHIN THIRTY HOURS OF LONDON. —♦— A REMARKABLE UNDERTAKING. Quite justifiable felicitation attends the com- pletion of the Uganda Railway. Of course, finality cannot be claimed for the undertaking at present, but completion is attained in so far as is con- stituted by the arrival of the first train at Port Florence, the Victoria Nyanza terminus of the line. The first rail was laid at the sea-coast end in August, 1896, and the full length of the line— 682 miles—has been completed in less than five and a half years. The magnitude of the under- taking does not appear in the mere statement of mileage, and the five millions sterling which the work has cost. The work has been extraordi- narily difficult. The mere mention of a railway suggests civilisation, but this system, which con- THE KIKUYU VIADUCT, 365 MILES FROM THE MOMBASA TERMINUS OP THE RAILWAY. nects the shore of the Indian Ocean with the great plateau of the Central African Lakes, has had to he la...

A COUNT'S ESCAPADE. HE BUNS AWAY FBOH HIS REGIMENT IN A MOTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 March 1902

  A COUNTS ESCAPADE.   HE RUNS AWAY FROM HIS REGI- MENT IN A MOTOR. —♦— Count Raphael Cahen d'Anvers, writes the Paris correspondent of a London paper, who was killed last year in an automobile accident, left one son, Hubert, who inherited a huge fortune and his father's title. Count Hubert, a young man of an athletic turn of mind, absolutely abhorred business, and leaving the conduct of the well-known banking house to his uncle, he enlisted in the 7th French Hussar Regiment at Rheims, in order to get his military service over quickly. He seems at an early stage to have been un- favorably noted by his officers, and for some time past all his applications for leave have been rejected. Recently the regiment moved to Niort, and soon after arriving in that town Count Cahen d'Anvers was, with a companion, ordered 10 days' cells for some escapade. The two prison- ers broke through the roof the other night, and escaped to Bordeaux, where they donned civilian cloth...
