LONDON LETTER. The moss rose tea jacket is of mauve silk,. with a green spat. It is trimmed with, flounces of mauve and green chiffon. A. green velvet belt paBsea through the uiider arm seams and leaves tho fronts loose. The neok arrangements and pouohed nest are of white lace over green satin. This dainty little jacket oan be worn at a dinner or at theatre. It should be ia the trous- seau of every bride. Tne fashionable bow of chiffon, edged with velvet, oan be wora~ with it, for no neok arrangement is noir complete without it. Hardly haB a fashion appeared before its bloom is over. In Paris things are dif- ferent, and they have to be, for French women are conservative about their dress in fact, they are far more economical than. wo are. A dress bought in the spring must do duty until the autumn. But we are perpetually changing until we ruin the harmony of our olothes, and never have a decent dress to put on. The ohief idea in millinery was to have the feathers starting on either s...

He had aooumulatod several hundred dollars and had built himself a good house.

PHYLLOXERA AT GLENFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
PHYLLOXERA AT GLENFIELD. Phylloxera, is alleged to lmvo made ita np pennuice in a vineyard nt Glenfield. Some time ago the disease was discovered in Mr. Sanderson's vineyard, in the same locality, nnil much dissatisfaction lins since been expressed by tho growers nt the action of tho department in connection therewith. The disease is located in a small portion of McGnrry's vineyard, the whole of which looks in excellent condition.

TO MAKE THE HANDS WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
TO MAKE THE HANDS WHITE. The reoipe I most use is one whioh was years ago culled from a Beauty Book, and ' is a very simple one to prepare. Pat a pinch of finely powdered alum into a basin, and break into it the white of an egg. Mix this up, and spread over the hands, just before retiring, 'ihe hands should have been pre- viously washed in hot-water, and thor- oughly dried. A little borax m +he water - J used for washing the hands ia an excellent thing, as also is dry oatmeal rubbed on, after washing. If tho hands are washed in soft water, with the best honey soap, they need never he chapped. If, however, they are chapped as the result of careless or imperfect washing, rub them two or three times a day with lemon juice, or rub them over occasion- ally with an ointment of fresh hog's lord, washed in rose or elder flower water, a . spoonful of honey, and two spoonfuls of fine , oatmeal, well beaten up with the yolks of two new-laid oggs. It is a certain remedy.
CANLEY VALE SOCIAL AND MUSICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
CANLEY VALE SOCIAL AND MUSICAL SOCIETY. The first annual meeting of the above was held at the Association Hall, Canley Vale, on Wednesday evening, 5th instant. Mr. G.

QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
QUESTIONS. What are the moat practically useful parts of mathematics ? There oan be no doubt whatever that the most praotioally useful thing in simple mathematics, ia that understanding of the relations between the 'powers' of numbers which enables us to make and use ' tablea of logarithms.' On referring to such a table it will be found that any number one oan name has corresponding to it a logarithm (the logarithm usually involving a deoimal fraction). And if we add the logarithm of one numbor to that of another, wo obtain the logarithm of their produot-and thence, of course, readily enough, the produot we require. Conversely, for division, wo sub- tract. Or if wo divide the logarithm of a number by, say, 3, we obtain the cube root of that number ; and so on. There oan he no doubt that the use of logarithms, whioh is so simple a matter that anyone oan mas- ter it, makeB an enormous saving in that most irksome of all labours, the labour of arithmetic What is sweet gale P She sweet g...

A sailor sleeps in the forecastle of a tumbling ship, and a soldier alongside of a big gun in a bombardment. One of the best night's sleep I ever had was in the open air on a prairie ia Western America, the grass for a bed, a blanket for a pillow, and my horse for company-the only living thing within fifty miles of me. But, pshaw ! that was luxury co in pared with some situations in which men sleep sound us bricks in a wall. Habit does it as we said. Hence, Mr. Fred Downs' loss of sleep had no- thing to do with h¡8> being a commercial traveller. Commonly, these useful gentlemen can sleep wherever night overtakes thein-in hotels or in trains, in quiet country towns or in the midst of a racket tit to drive anybody else fairly wild.

THE WORLD'S FIRST SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
THB WORLD'S FIRST SMOKERS. The most anoient smokers of whom we have any knowledge are the abo iginal in- habitants of North America. At the time of their first contaot with white men they smoked in pipes of the bark of a shrub pos- sessing narootio qualities similar to those of tobacco. The Indians aro inveterate smokers, and regard their pipes with a feeling of love and revorenoe, for there, they believo, lies the mystery of all things. The material used for one anoient variety of pipes waa oalled ' pipe-stone.' It waa dug from a saored quarry, supposed to have been graoiously given by the Great Spirit for this purpose. Tho bowl was usually oarved, and sometimes most elaborately. Heads of animals dear to their tribes, or, occasionally, the human face was represented. Tho calumet, or peace-pipe, was saored, and never used exoept on the oooaBion of peace-making. Its gorgeous decoration was al way h a banner of eagle's feathers. Often the value of an Indian brave's pipe exceeded that ...
SOME LONG BEARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
SOME LONG BEARDS. Perhaps the best-known beard in the &lt; United States is that of ex-Senator Peffer of Kansas, whioh was said to measure three feet long, but there are many whioh exoeed that in size. The museums frequently con- tain men five feet and whose beards sweep the floor when they stand up, but perhaps the longest of all is that of Logrand Liarow, of Lamar, Mo., winch is said to exceed any oHier in the world. It is seven feet in length; and has measured seven and one half feet. Mr Larow was bom in Tompkins County, Now York, in 1862, and his relatives are noted for heavy beards, but not of extra- ordinary length. He is six feet in height and weighs 175 pounds. When standing with his beard down it extends two feet upon the ground. He has not shaved for over twenty years. In the year 1877 Mr Larow went West, and was a farmer and stook raiser for many years. He wears his beard braided and wound around his body, or else wrapped and lodged inside his vest.
THE KAISER AS LETTER WRITER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
THE KAISER AS LETTER WRITER. Some statistics have just been published at Berlin of the amount of work whioh the Kaiser got through last year. They would certainly be considered fantastio to a degree, if they wore not official, and consequently as authentic as German red tape can make them. In the last twelve months the Emperor attended to 5,857 matters affecting his foreign policy, and 60,134 details of home government. His military and naval cabinet sent out over 109,000 dippatohes. In the vaBt majority of cases the Emperor himself diotated tho answers. Híb pohtioal cabinet forwarded on an average 409 letters or dispatches daily, and as many as 2,000 or 8,000 have been sent out on national i fetes or birthdays of the Imperial Family, j Daring the year the Emperor wrote with his own hand 7,000 personal and private letters. It is enough to make one dizzy.
