The poor woman-was in a terrible state of mental agony upon seeing the flames as she had just gone into the yard leaving the little' one inside, and wsas under the impression that the poor child was in the burning building.

A NEW USE FOR THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 31 March 1883

A NEW USE FOR THE POTATO., According to the Vienna Agricullural Galtte, .it has rceently been discovered that meerschaum pipes of excellent quality, suscep. tible of the highest polish, and even more readily colorable than the genuine s?imua do mare may be made of potatoes. The familiar tuber, it seems, is well qualified to compete with the substance known to commerce as "meerschaum clay." Its latent virtues in this direction are developed by the following treat-. ment :-Having been carefully ,peeled, and suffered extraction of its "eyes,' the potato is boiled unintermittently for thirty-six hours in a micture of. sulphuric acid and water, after. which it must be squeezed in a press until every drop of natural or acquired water is extracted from it. . The residuum of this simple process is a hard block of a delicate creamy white .hre, every whit as suitable to the manufacture of ornamental and artistically executed pipe heads as the finest clay. The potato moreover, dealt with in th...

A MILLION YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 31 March 1883

A M?ILLION YEARS. Here is one'way of onveying'to the mind some idea of-what'a'million of years really is. Take a narrow strip of paper, an inch broad, or more; and 831. 4min. in length; and stretch italong the walls of a large hall, or round the walls of an apartment, somewhat over soft. square. Recall to memory the days of your boyhood,'so as to get some adequate concepption ofwhat a period of a hundred years is.. Th e mark off from one of the ends of the strip one tenth of an inch. The one-tenth of the inch will then represent one hundred years, and the entire! ength of the strip a million di years. It is well worth making the experiment, just in order to feel the striking impression that it produces on the mind. Coult we stand upon the edge of a gorge, a mile and a half in depth, that had been cnt out of the solid rock by a tiny stream, scarcely visible at the bottom of this fearful abyss, and were we informed that this little streamlet was able to wear offannually only one-tenth...

Lulu's own account of the period iduring which he was a "girl" was given very arpk.ly. D s.!ld--" Why w? IT girl? Because it enhanced the interest'of the performance. A crowd at a circus will eye a woman with intense curiosity when they wouldn't think of looking at a man.

When I was younger my face was of an essentially feminine type. I maintained my disguise under all circumstances; even my intimate acquaintan...
