Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
HUNrlsT ALLIOATOS FI PLORIDA.--Partie are hunting the 'gaso's way down on the Clooaehatabie and Kisimee rivers, and upon tab numerous lakes in that region. Nothing is need except the skins upon the belly and legs, the rough, scaly plates upon the backs of the animals being rejected. The heads are out off and buried for a few days, until the tuasks can be detached. It was announced some days since that one person had collected alligator teeth to the amount of three hundred and fifty pounds. This fact alone will give some idea of the destruction now going on among these creasures. On the St. John's River a now method has been devised for the successful parsuit of this game. A dark lantern with a powerful reflector is used on suitable nights, and no diffioulty is experienced in approach ing the quarry. The animals appear to be perfectly bewildered by the strong glare, and make no effort to escape. The gun is held within a few feet of the head, a touch to the trigger, and there is a 'ga...

Humour. A GAMBLER'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
S A GAMBLER'S LUCK. A Srao?mo'gambler one day spent all his money at the green-table, and msitt lingered there. The banker looked at me inquiringly. I halt rose to retire. I had fully determined to blow out my brains in the street. I 'hal rose, I say, and, as I did so, I saw upon the floor a round, bright object, which had a silver shimmer as the bright gaslight fell upon it. It was a coin-a -. Peseta," I interrupted. l Yes," he went on, " a little bit of silver coin-only a peseta." I placed my foot upon it, and, motioning to the banker, said: -" Seventeen." "Seventeen wine," said he, and on the seventeen changed seven silver daros. " Do you leave it there ?" said he. I nodded. Again the ivory ball span around, and again stopped at seventeen. Again I left the glittering pile on seven teen, and again it won. Seven several timer did the goddess fortune smile upon me, and when I stopped it was not because I feared to venture further, but beeoase I hae broken the bank. - " And the peset...

Science. THE HUMAN PERIOD IN GEOLOGY. (Chambers' Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
THE HUMAN PERIOD IN GEOLOGY. (Chambers' JournaL) ATiUonoa we are apt to lose eight of the importance of our own species in the immensely wider study of the universe, as well as to undervalue the influence of man in comparison with those silent bat mighty forces by whose agency our earth has been sculptured into its present form, yet all must agree with the Italian geolo gist, Stoppani, that man makes a distinct geological period, and that his creation is the introduction of a new force, previously unknown in nature. The power of intel ligence in overcoming the influence of 'external cironmatances is exemplified in the history of every nation, so that some historians have thought it necessary to preface the history of a people with a description of the geological features of the country in which it has sprung up. But when Cuvier said that the habits and even the thoughts of a people depend upon the nature of the soil which it in habits, he scarcely made enough allowance for the power...
HISTORY OF THE TOMATO. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
HISTORY OF THE TOMATO. A GOOD many years ago a man who had recently arrived from the Bermuda Islands was sent to York county, Pa., gaol for some offence committed against the laws of the Commonwealth. He had with him a few seeds which he planted in the rich soil of the gaol yard. Before the plants which sprang from the seed reached maturity, he was discharged, and no one knew the nature of them. They grew luxuriantly, bearing fruit of a large size and unusual appear ance. As this strange fruit ripened, its colour changed from green to a brilliant red, and became an object of wonder and admiration to all the inmates of the gaol. EIrs. Klinefelter, thelady keeper, cautioned all the prisanere against eating any of the fruit, as she was sure it was poisonous, and besides planted the seed, as she would endeavour to preserve specimens of it for him should he be returned in time. Just when the fruit was fully matured the Bermuda prisoner revisited the gaol, and asked to see the plant. This...

THE DUTCH CAPTAIN'S DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
THE DUTCH CAPITAIN'S DEVICE. 8" ar on starboard bow. l" . "What is she F"'. asked Captain Martin Pieterson, looking anxiously in that direc tion; for on the Eastern seas, two hundred years ago, every strange sail was a terror to the captain of. a well-laden Dutch merchantman. "Can't quite make herout yet," answers the look-out at the mast-head. "Looks like a brigantine-she has avery rakish cut, altogether. The captain's face darkened and his lips tightened. They tightened still more a few minutes later, when the look-out hailed again: S She's a brigantine, bearing right down upon us." Every face in the crew seemed to harden suddenly, bnt no one spoke.: Indeed, what need was there of words ? All on board understood in a moment what was before them-they were about to be attacked by pirates, and there was not a single cannon, no, not even an old musket aboard the vessel. It was a terrible moment for them all, more ternible still for the poor captain. For years he had been toiling and s...
Novelist. BELLA'S HERO; or The Marquis and the Freebooter. A STORY OF THE WELSH MARCHES. CHAPTER XIV.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 10 February 1882
BELLA'S HERO; The Marquis and the Freebooter. A STORY OF THE WELSH MARO~HES By. SYLVaNUS 'COBB, JUN. CHAPTER XIV.-(Continueed.) THEN there came a mighty revulsion. The pent-up breath burst forth in a deep, long-drawn moan-almost a cry-and the shocked heart bounded and throbbed tumultuously. And she pressed her lips to her father's cheek. And he, poor fool! went away with the belief that the emotion which he had witnessed was but the result of maidenly feeling, highly wrought by the strange situation; and of that deeper sentiment, suddenly excited, which every young female must feel in the presence of the irst suitor. This was all, he thought; and the polite and gallant soldier would soon win his way to her favourable consideration. There were a few seconds during which the heart of Bella Waldron throbbed so wildly that it seemed to her as though it would burst its prison-walls. But she conquered the terror at length, and re gained her self-control; though the ordeal was dreadful, an...
