DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
DOGS. ' Blackman' is a chimney-sweep, and com- plains that, while walking through the streets in quest of work, he is frequently attacked by dogs. ' No member of my pro- fession,' he says, ' can walk about with a black face without dogs flying at him. Three times have I been bitten by them. Their behaviour towards me I'm sure is due to the blackened condition of my face.' Very likely. A case was only heard in court recently in which a chimney-sweep was accused of cruelty in striking a dog so heavily as to break its jaw, but under the circumstance the judge let him off lightly. There's no doubt that a dog, accustomed to seeing white faces, will become irritated at the sight of faces of a darker complexion. Men less black than negroes have been wor- ried by dogs, especially terriers, on their arrival in England.
VARIETIES. AN EEL SKIN FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
YARIETIES. __________ &nbsp; AN EEL SKIN FACTORY. One of the strangest factories that ever existed, and what is more, pays handsomely for its existance, is situated in a quiet street in the neighbourhood of London Bridge. Here are prepared and manufactured various articles from the skin of the commonplace eel. The skins are manipulated by numerous complicated processes until they resemble and would easily be taken for leather, al- though of a more gelatinous and pliable nature. This strange commodity is cut into long thin strips and plated very closely to- gether for whiplashes, and to cover portions of the handles of more expensive whips. Certain kinds of lashes and harness laces are also made of eel-skin. The leather is almost indispensable in articles of this description, where flexibility allied with an uncommon toughness is de- sired.
WHAT IS PERSONAL MAGNETISM? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
WHAT IS PERSONAL MAGNETISM? Among the most powerful of unseen forces is personal magnetism. Two men address an assembly on the same topic, and in nearly the same words ; oi_u is listened to with indifference, if at all, the other stirs to every fibre of our being, and our souls thrill re- sponsive to his lightest touch. It is not what we hear, nor is it graceful pose or elegant diction. It is nothing comprehen- sive or tangible, but an invisible, mysterious force, which we acknowledge and yield to, &nbsp; even against our convictions and reason. This strange attribute is not hereditary nor can it be acquired. Of two brothers or sis- ters, born of the same parents, growing up under the same influences and amid the same environments, one will possess this singular &nbsp; gift, another have not a vestige of it.
TO 'TIP' CLERGYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
TO 'TIP' CLERGYMEN. &nbsp; &nbsp; Cranks of all sorts are continually trying to bribe clergymen, and, indeed, if only he dare accept suck tips, many a struggling young curate might become a comparatively rich man without further trouble to himself. A short time ago an irascible old gentle man in Yorkshire offered tho young vicar of his parish a fifty-guinea cheque if he would preach for a month on the ingratitude of sons to their fathers. As his own son had just arrived home from college on his summer vacation, and always attended church on Sundays, It may not require a great amount of reading between the lines to get at the motive for this request, which, however, was not complied with Au extraordinary tip offered to a clergy- man was that of a Jewish soap-boiler, who magnanimously offered to endow the living with £500 a year if allowed to use one of the choir windows for a stained-glass advertise- ment of his soap. &nbsp; A Devonshire curate was offered £12...
LIVERPOOL GLEE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
LIVERPOOL GLEE CLUB. &nbsp; &nbsp; On Wednesday evening, 22nd ultimo, a very success- ful entertainment was given in the Town Hall by the members of the above, under the conductor- &nbsp; ship of Miss Crackanthorp, in aid of the Liverpool Ladies Benevolent Society and the &nbsp; Liverpool Brass Band. There was a fair audience consisting chiefly of the leading residents. Root's cantata, " The Haymakers," formed the first part of &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the programme and was admirably rendered through- out. The various performers were appropriately attired in harvesting costume, and Mr. Rowe (the farmer) Miss E. Rowe (the farmer's daughter); Miss Robson (dairy-maid) and Mr. A. E. Reay (the farmer's man) sang the solos entrusted to them in first-class style, while the choruses by the members were splendidly rendered. Mrs. J. C. Crakanthorp acted as accompanist throughout. After a short interval, the second part opened with a reading,...
ALL OVER SEVEN FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
ALL OVER SEVEN FEET. &nbsp; The seven footers are more numerous than the ' eighters,' but still they are by no means &nbsp; as plentiful as blackberries. Captain Van Bates, of Kentucky, is but a single ½in. under 8ft. His collars are each 26in. long, he wears fifteens in boots and weighs 35st. During the reign ot Charles I. we have records of two seven footers- one Evens was 7½ft. high, and Walter Parsons the monarch's celebrated porter, was only a couple of inches shorter. Colonel Orr joined, the great majority in 1888. He stood when alive 7ft. 4., and weighed 250lb. Miles Darden, who died in 1857, was two inches under the stature of the Colonel, but he surpassed him in weight, no less than 1,200lb being his total. One of the rickest, and probably one of the tallest, noblemen of Germany visited England last year ; he was Count Douglas, who is descended from a Scottish soldier ennobled in the eighteenth century ; this gentleman's height is 7ft. 2in.
WELL TIMED. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
WELL TIMED. A clergyman had just concluded his long - &nbsp; discourse, the benediction had been, pro- &nbsp; nounced, and the congregation were dis- persing. Said Churchwarden Toggs, a great admirer of the preacher : 'A fine sermon and well timed, too.' &nbsp; 'Yes,' replied the clergyman, ' it wag. &nbsp; certainly well timed. About half the con- gregation had their watches out most of the - time I was talking.'
TEN TO ONE YOU DON'T. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
TEN TO ONE YOU DON'T. Some of you who think you are well up in &nbsp; spelling just try to spell the words in this little sentence : &nbsp; &nbsp; 'It is agreeable to witnesss the unparal- . &nbsp; leled ecstasy of two harrassed pedlars en- deavouring to gauge the symmetry of two peeled pears.' Read it over to your friends and see how many of them can spell every word correctly. The sentence contains many of the real, puzzlers of the spelling book.
BRICKS AND MORTAR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
BRICKS AND MORTAR. A well-known M.P., addressing a political &nbsp; &nbsp; meeting in the Corn Hall at Huntingdon some time ago, hoping thereby to create a little enthusiasm amongst the working men, exclaimed : 'When the poling-day comes, you good- fellows must stick to me like bricks !' A hardy son of toil in the middle of the hall, who knew from experience that bricks &nbsp; &nbsp; had no adhesive property, rose in the middle &nbsp; &nbsp; of the hall, and said : 'You mean like mortar, don't you, sir?' &nbsp; &nbsp; Roars of laughter greeted this witty sally..
LORD FFOLIOT'S PHEASANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
LORD FFOLIOT'S PHEASANTS. : 'Look at ma letter that's goin' wi' the &nbsp; hamper, Sandy,' said Lord Ffoliot's game- keeper. 'Hov I spelt peesants right ?' &nbsp; 'Nae, mon,' said Sandy ; 'there's nae 'p' &nbsp; &nbsp; in feesants. Begin them wi' an 'f.' 'But how many 'f's' ? His lordship be- &nbsp; gins his ain name wi' twa.' 'Well,' said Sandy, thoughtfully, 'it &nbsp; &nbsp; depends on the number of feesants.' &nbsp; &nbsp; So the gamekeeper wrote, ' In the hamper' your lordship will find four ffffeesants from the presarves.'
FORGOT THE DEAD ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
FORGOT THE DEAD ONES. ' Well,' said the red-faced man, ' the most exciting chase I ever had happened a few years ago in Russia. One night, when sleighing about ten miles from my destina- tion, I discovered to my intense horror that I was being followed by a pack of thirteen wolves. Whipping up my horse wildly, and wondering what to do, I suddenly thought of my gun, whioh luckily I had with me. 'Picking this up, I fired blindly into the &nbsp; pack, killed one of the brutes, and, to my delight, saw the others stop to devour it. After doing this, however, they still came on. I fired again, and the same thing hap- pened. I kept on repeating the dose, with the same result, and each occasion gave me an opportunity to whip up my horses. Finally there was only one wolf left, yet on it came, with its fierce eyes glaring in an- ticipation of a good hot supper.' Here the man who had been sitting quietly in the corner burst forth into a fit of laughter. 'Why, man' said he, 'by your way...
ANOTHER BIKE JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
ANOTHER BIKE JOKE. &nbsp; &nbsp; 'What is the prisoner charged with ?' said &nbsp; the judge. 'Searching, your honour.' 'Guilty or not guilty ?' asked the judge. &nbsp; &nbsp; 'My client pleads guilty, and begs for &nbsp; clemency on account of his years.' ' I shall give him the full extent of the law,' said tho judge, sternly. 'The prisoner &nbsp; is sentenced to ride for sixty days behind beginners.'
CHERISHED BELONGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CHERISHED BELONGINGS. "That velvet sachet contains a number of &nbsp; letters written me by my old school-mate-dear little Alice! You'll remember her ? I wonder &nbsp; where she is now? And this fine old gold chain &nbsp; -well, my sweet mother gave me that on my 16th birthday, and, naturally, when I look at it, my mind travels back many years." The letters and chains were two items in the effects of Mrs. Barry, who was showing them to her dearest friend. The scene is now changed. In this instance, Mrs. Lardelli is just running through her belongings, and gazes with eyes full of affec- tion upon a little wooden box. She lives at 162 Dowling-street, Sydney, and will tell you that the box once contained the famous specific, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, which raised her from a condition of severe suffering to health and happinness. Mrs. Lardelli, a fine, handsome woman of about 35 years of age, said to a reporter of tho Balmain Observer who called u...

The Psalm of Life. Tell me not in mournful numbers Advertising does not pay ; For tho man's non compos mentis Who would such absurd things say. Life is real ! Life is earnest !

A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [By W. T. C.] My next dissipation was that ancient land- mark of murder, brutality and history-the Tower of London. What a crowd of mingled emotions crowd upon one as he stands within the precincts of what once was fortress, castle and prison. Built in 1087 these walls and towers have in succeeding centuries looked down upon many a goodly company of dames and knights, saw many a joust and tournament. These grim dungeons received prisoners captured on the field of Agincourt; later on the leader of the Lollards-Lord Cobham ; then Sir Walter Raleigh, and later still, from thence on to the scaffold, Lady Jane Grey, and the unfortunate Mary Stuart. Indeed, in what was once known as The Green Court upon the private block, as well as upon Tower Hill yonder, the best blood of England poured forth like water, especi- ally during the reign of lusty Henry VIII. Sometimes we hear these periods termed the "good old days." Thank God happier times have...
NOVEL. FLOTSAM. BOOK III.—CROSS—CURRENTS. CHAPTER II.—(CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
NOVEL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ______________ FLOTSAM. By OWEN HALL. BOOK III.-CROSS-CURRENTS. CHAPTER II.-(CONTINUED.) ' I do not know her name,' he said gravely, as he opened the door and led the way. There was no help for it, then ; I must meet her without preparation ; but why-why should she have concealed her name if it was Alice ? I followed the doctor through the wide corridor, this thought beating time in my brain to each step I made : Was it not Alice, then, after all ? He paused at a door for a single instant, and then he opened it, and, standing aside, motioned me to enter. I hesitated : I felt at the moment as if I could not put my fate to the touch. He stood holding the handle of the door and looking at me, but he said nothing. I felt that it was cowardly, and with a flush of shame I forced myself to go in. It was a long, bright ro...
