GOLD AND BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898

. GQLD AND BLOOD. v MANY years ago I know a man who expended, a: great part of a largo fortune in buying gold, in coin »nd in bars. This he.niel.ted,:and. with human biped, and, oilier unique, ingredients, laboured, secretly to prepare a mixture that should arrest i all disease, renew vitality, and . prolong life; indefinitely. I need hardly say that ho failed.. Not only did he fail, but one day an explosión took place in his laboratory which destroyed the fruits of his toil and left him senseless and badly wounded amid,the wreck. The rest of his duys were past in an asylum. Yet he was not tho first man who tried that same experiment, not by thousands. To find the elixir of life was one of the main purposes of tho science of alchemy, the barbaric ancestor of thc modern science of chemistry. But all that is now discredited. No doctor or student of healing even pretends to possess or to seek an essence of life. What is undertaken, however, and successfolly, is to ascertain tho truth a...

LIVERPOOL MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. MR. BLINMAN'S CANDIDATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 29 January 1898

LIVERPOOL MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. Mr. BLINMAN'S CANDIDATURE. MR. A. Blinman, who is a candidate for South Ward, addressed a well-attended meeting of ratepayers from the balcony of Brewer's Hotel on Saturday evening last. Mr. V. Parkes, M. P., presided, and Messrs Slocombe, Linklater and Weaver (members of the Glenfield Progress Association), occupied seats on the balcony. The chairman, in introducing the candidate, said that heretofore he had always objected to identifying himself with candidates for municipal honors, but in as much as Mr. Blinman had rendered him valu- able assistance in matters affecting the welfare and progress of the district, he was placed under an obligation that made it imperative that he should take the chair. Mr. Blinman was a new man, free from animosity and unbiassed, and would represent the ratepayers in an intelligent and thoughtful manner and leave no room for complaint. There was a good deal in the contention that South Ward should have a country represe...

LIVERPOOL WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

LIVERPOOL WATER SUPPLY. THE Liverpool Council's recent complaint to   the Board of Health, respecting the impure state of the water from the local supply, has   evidently been productive of good, inasmuch as it has caused the Water and Sewerage Board to promptly investigate the matter, notwithstanding the allegations of certain of its members that such a course was unneces- sary owing to the existing precautions to prevent the contamination of the water.   On Monday last Colonel Rowe (president), with other members of the Board, visited the town and proceeded to the reservoir at Cecil Hills. The only intimation the council re- ceived of their visit was through the presid- ent leaving his card at the Council Chambers when returning to catch the evening train for the metropolis. On the following day, Mr. Jacob, one of the Board's officers was in town. He also visited the reservoir and it is understood that he collected samples of water from certa...

INGLEBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

INGLEBURN.   A VERY pleasant evening was spent on Thurs-   day, 27th January, at the residence of Mr.   W. J. Collins. About 12 couples assembled, and dancing was kept up with great vigor un- til the early hours of the morning. During the evening several duets and comic songs were rendered by the Misses Scott and Mars-   den (of Liverpool), also by Mr. P. McDonald and R. Campion, which helped to brighten the enjoyment of the evening. The music was provided by Mr. J. Williamson, and was, as usual, all that could be desired. The object of the gathering was to commemorate the silver wedding of the host and hostess. The health of Mr. and Mrs. Collins was proposed by Ald. Percival, and in a humorous speech Ald. Collins responded. He said he hoped by the time of the golden wedding to be able to teach the guests the art of winning the good wishes of the young ladies. Afterwards, all joined in singing "For he's a jolly good fellow," which ...

ON THE WHEEL. ' I Mount, Mount the wheel, ye hollow cheats,   ' Ye sallôw broods, be brave. | Mount, mount the wheel, ye bloodless tribes, " And ride away from the grave ! Health, the strong goddess, swift of foot, Dances her lawless reel Down woodland roads, through dewy glens; Go catch her on the wheel. She flings her brown arms in the sun,   She climbs from height to height,   Her sportive glance is beckoning on ; Mount, mount and share her flight. Oh, ye desk-anchored men and maids, This goddess holds aloof From those who shun the arching sky To seek the slated roof. She trips where bending elders shade - The road, dew-damp, at noon, She strides along the fern-sweet glade, Beneath the harvest moon. She waits for those who give her ohase < Where bird-thronged arches peal ; Go, chase her down the winding roads, And catch her on the wheel. ^The foodless horse can travel far     And climb the arduous slope P...

VERY ILL. DOCTOR'S ATTENTION. SUNDRY MEDICINES. NO BENEFIT, FIRM BELIEVER IN CLEMENTS TONIC. ADVISED' A TRIAL. RESULT INCREDIBLE. AS WELL AS EVER. MR. ROBERT THOMPSON, PETERSBURG, S. A. writes on May 3rd, 1897 :-I have every   reason to be thankful to Clements Tonic, it having cured me of lead poisoning, and in- fluenza. My case was as follows:-Six years ago, while working at Dry Creek Smelting Works, I became what is called "leaded." This ocurred three times. I was very ill, and had doctor's attendance and medicine, all to no purpose. My wife, who is a firm believer in Clements Tonic, advised a trial, and the result was almost incredible, for after a proper course of that excellent remedy, I was as well as ever, and have not felt any of the effects of lead since. Again, while employed at Manna Hill I had a most severe attaok of influenza. I again turned to. my former, friend, Clements tonic, and once more it proved to be the right re medy, for I quickly regained good h...

A MIDNIGHT SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

A MIDNIGHT SCARE. OLD Plim has a habit of slipping his watch under his pillow when he goes to bed. One night, somehow it slipped down, and as the old man was restless it worked its way towards the foot of the bed. After a bit, while he was lying awake, his foot touched it ; it felt very cold ; he was surprised, scared; and jumping from the bed,, he said ; " My gracious, Maria, there's a frog or some thing under the clothes. I touched it with my foot." Mrs. Plim gave a loud scream, and was on   the floor in an instant. " Now, don't go screaming and waking the neighbours,-' said Plim. " You get me a broom or something, and we'll settle the thing." Mrs. Plim got the broom and gave it to her better half, with the remark that she felt as though snakes were creeping up and down her back. "Nonsense, Maria. Now turn down the bed-clothes slowly while I hold the broom and have a bang at it. Put a jug of water along- side the bed so that we can shove it in and drown it." Mrs. Plim...

HEALTHY STIMULUS. j THERE IS one thing Satan does well. He is good at stating the discouraging side. He knows how to fish for obstacles, and every time brings up his not full. Do not help him in his work ! If you have anything to say in prayer meeting that is disheartening, may you forget your speech ! Tell us something on the bright side. We know a Christian man who did something outrageously wrong. Someone said : " Why do you not expose him ?" We replied : " That is the devil's work, and it will be thoroughly done. If there is anything good about him, we should rather speak of that." Give no sormons or newspaper articles that aro depressing.

THE CHRYSANTHEMUM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

THE CHRYSANTHEMUM. Keep down damp as much as possible by admitting fresh air to dispel the superfluous moisture, whenever the opportunity is afforded by the favourable state of the weather. When any of the florets are found to be damping off, they should be carefully removed with a pair of tweezers, and any decaying foliage picked off daily as soon as observed. "Watering should be done early in the day, and only sufficient given to answer tho purpose for which it is intended. If there are any signs of the petals being eaten, it may be attributed either to the presence of earwigs or caterpillars, chiefly the former ; these are best caught at night,   or trapped in a small flower-pot into the bottom of which a little hay or moss has been placed ; the other insect is best caught during the daytime by a close search upon the underneath surface'of the leaves. As soon as any of the flowers show signs of hanging over by reason of their weight, a little support should be given ...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

MR. PERKINS. Mr. Perkins has been visiting his wife's relatives up in Maine. While there he at- tended church one Sunday. He did not want to go, but his wife thought it would do him good. The sermon was long and prosy, and Perkins went to sleep. As he did not snore, his wife did not notice that he was in the arms of Morpheus. She was busy taking mental notes of a bonnet worn by a lady from Boston, who occupied the pew just in   front of them. The sermon came to an end at last, but Perkins slept peacefully on. The deacons began to take up the collection. When the hat was passed to Perkins, his wife was surprised to see that he did not respond. She nudged him violently to bring him to his senses. Perkins sat up with a start. Gazing iu a bewildered manner at the extended hat, he suddenly thought it was his owu, blurted out * Thank you very much.' clapped it on his head, and sank in, dismay into the depths of the pew, amid a shower of rattling coins, and the blessings of hi...

WOLSELEY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898

WOLSELEY. A writer tells the story of Wolseley's dis- obedience in the field. It was during the second relief of Lucknow. The old mess house of the 32nd, strongly held by the rebels, stood in the way of Sir Colin Camp- bell's advanco, and beyond it was the Moti   Mahal. Sir Colin thought that the mess house might be stormed without much risk. He ordered for this duty a company of the 90th under Captain Wolseley. The actual leader of the storming party was Captain Wolseley. ' Never was a daring feat of arms better performed.' His orders had been only to take the messhouse, but 'the victorious stormers followed the fleeing enemy, and Wolseley, far from checking them, deter- mined to push his advantage to the utmost.' He pressed on to the Moti Mahal and took it. Sir Colin was furious with Wolseley for havinar exceeded the letter of instructions. The Brigadier (Adrian Hope) advised Wolse- . loy to keep out of the way, as tho Chief was asking for him, and he never saw a man ...
