MRS. ROOSEVELT'S SOCIAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

MRS. ROOSEVELT'S SOCIAL SECRE- TARY. Miss Isabelle Hagner, a beautiful young society girl of Washington, has been made the social superintendent of the Roosevelt Administration. As secretary to Mrs. Roosevelt, upon the unique duties of which position she has just entered, she will be in charge of all the social affairs of the Executive Mansion. Besides attending to the pri- vate correspondence of the mistress of the White House, she will manage official functions, and be charged with the task of smoothing out those ruffles that result from petty jealousies and ani- mosities among the women of the Administration. All the guest lists will be under her supervision. Unofficially Miss Hagner will have charge of the debut of Miss Roosevelt, and all informal enter- tainments given by that fair young debutante will be managed by the social secretary. Adver- sities deprived her of a fortune which came as a birthright, and forced her to make her own way in the world. She is said to have made ...

INGENIOUS SHOES FOR MARCHING. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

INGENIOUS SHOES FOR MARCHING. Every great war or national emergency brings out a crop of curious inventions, by which simi- lar misfortunes may, in the eyes of the inventor, be avoided in future. The last number of the "Strand Magazine" contains a few of these novel- ties. Perhaps no part of a soldier's outfit is more important than the boots. The sketch given shows a spring boot for making marching easy. It consists essentially of a pivotable and de- tachable sole, furnished with springs at the front No. 1. No. 2. and back, and is   supposed to re-   duce materially   the exertion de-   manded in march-   ing. It is claim-   ed for it, too, that   worn-out soles   may be easily and   quickly replaced.   Between the pro-   per and the extra   heels is a coiled   spring, whilst a   horseshoe spring &a...

ROYAL DRAWING ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

  ROYAL DRAWING ROOMS.   It is now an accomplished fact that in future all   Drawing Rooms are to be held in the evening.   The Queen has always been in favor of the ar-   rangement, and all sensible people thoroughly appreciate her idea, and are most desirous that the evening Drawing Room should prevail. No woman, however young or beautiful, looks to ad- vantage in evening dress in broad daylight. It   is curious that it should be so; but there it is, and no one attempts to contradict the fact.   Altogether the innovation will have hearty ap-   proval, save from the populace, who dearly love   to line all the approaches to Buckingham Pal-   ace on Drawing Room days.

"PINK TOE SOCIALS." HOW JADED AMERICAN SOCIETY IS AMUSED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

"PINK TOE SOCIALS." HOW JADED AMERICAN SOCIETY IS AMUSED. Some of the devices to which jaded society in New York resorts to add an element of novelty to the commonplace methods of amusement are interesting. "Pink-toe" socials and mid-winter shirt-waist parties are two of the most recently introduced fads of the Four Hundred. The "pink-toe"' entertainment received its initial production at Binghampton, where a goodly number of guests from New York have been enjoying the hunting and nutting season. Just before returning to the city they gave a "Trilby" social, the women appearing at it bare-   footed. In one corner of the spacious reception-room was a curtain, and before the supper hour each man was required to make a guess at the iden- tity of the owner of a bare foot shown beneath the curtain. If he was successful, he took the owner to supper, but if he failed he was fined heavily, the proceeds going to a local charity. The mid-winter shirt-waist party idea owes its ori...

JAPAN AS A WORLD-POWER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

JAPAN AS A WORLD-POWER. For fully a quarter of a century the Japanese have been laying the foundations of a new civil- isation by a very thorough system of education, and, moreover, they have made very considerable progress in the applications of western science and methods to industrial production. In several departments, and especially in those connected with the cotton manufacture, Japanese goods are to be found in all tbe chief markets in the Far East. The Japanese navy forms a very important factor in the forces to be taken into account when estimating the probabilities of any international quarrel in that quarter of the globe. Its army has won admiration, not only for its bravery, but also for the thorough manner in which it is equipped, and the able manner in which it is handled. Japanese merchant ships are to be found in many of the chief ports in all parts of the world; and the place of Japan in the comity of nations has now been admitted (says "Engi- neering"), even by her...

WHAT NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

WHAT NEXT? Petrified human eyeballs seem somewhat ghastly trinkets, yet in certain parts of America they are said to be quite the fashion. These novel ornaments are the orbs of the ancient Peruvians, preserved by some process now un- known, and of a beautiful tender green hue, flashing like an opal. At night, however, they lose their color, and become dull and heavy. The eyeballs look well set in a signet ring or hanging to a watch-chain, and are also worn in brooches and bracelets.

BEST WAY TO USE CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

BEST WAY TO USE CAMPHOR.   The best method of employing camphor when storing away articles of clothing is in pieces the size of a hazelnut, wrapped each in tissue paper; thus covered the camphor will not injure the most delicate color. Spirits of turpentine sprinkled freely in a trunk before lining it with newspapers will destroy any moth's egg that may have found lodgment therein, but the turpentine must not be allowed to touch anything which it can possibly   injure.

The "Living God" of Urga. "OF THE WORLD, WORLDLY." [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

The" Living God" of Urga. "OF THE WORLD, WORLDLY.'' It was my destiny this year (writes a corre- spondent of the "Standard") to return to Europe from China overland. Leaving Pekin on July 10, I travelled in four days, through the far-famed Nan Khou Pass and over the Great Wall of China, to Kalgan, whence the old Asiatic high-   way, across Mongolia, ran to Urga. Leaving Kalgan on July 15, 14 days' riding sufficed to cross the Gobi Desert and to reach Urga. Urga is certainly a place to see. Apart from its position upon the fringe of civilisation, it pos- sesses in its "Living God" one of the most won- derful religious personalities in the whole of   Asia. What the Dalai Lama in Tibet is to Buddhists in that portion of the world, the "Liv   ing God" is to the millions of Chinese and Mongo- lian Buddhists. In the flesh he is a young man under 30, and lives in a house which is an exact replica of the Russian Consulate General. His personification o...

A FIRST MEETING WITH ARTEMUS WARD. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

A FIRST MEETING WITH ARTEMUS   WARD.     The "Century" for November begins a "Year   of American Humor," and the following is from   an article by James F. Ryder on Artemus Ward,   in that number of the magazine:—   On going into the Cleveland "Plain Dealer"   editorial rooms, one morning, I saw a new man,   who was introduced to me as Mr. Brown. He was   young, cheerful in manner, tall and slender, not   quite up-to-date in style of dress, yet by no means   shabby. His hair was very flaxen and very   straight; his nose, the prominent feature of his   face, was Romanesque—quite violently so—and with a leaning to the left. His eyes were blue- grey, with a twinkle in them; his mouth seemed so given to a merry laugh, so much in motion, that it was difficult to describe. It seemed that bubbling in him was a ...

A DOCTOR'S EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

    A DOCTOR'S EXTRAORDINARY     EXPERIMENTS.     A certain doctor at Brooklyn, holding that Dr. Koch was wrong when he said that human and bovine tuberculosis are not inter-communicable,   has inoculated a cow with human bacilli. The cow developed tuberculosis. The New York cor- respondent of "The Leader" the other day stated that the man injected serum from an infected cow into the lymphatic glands of a young woman of good family and position. He says she will certainly contract consumption, but he will then cure her by putting her for eight weeks in an air-tight vault, filled with germicide vapor. The health authorities of Brooklyn are investigating, with a view to prosecution. Eight weeks in an air-tight vault. It is reported that Dr. Viquerat, of Moudon, in the Canton of Vaud, after many years' experi- menting, has at last succeeded in finding a re- medy alleged to be capable of curing co...

A DARING MAIDEN. LEAPS FROM A TRAIN. TO MEET HER SOLDIER LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

A DARING MAIDEN. LEAPS FROM A TRAIN.   TO MEET HER SOLDIER LOVER. That she might not be separated from her   soldier sweetheart. Eugenia Montejo, a pretty   girl of 17 years, jumped from a car window of the Los Angeles California express at Sixteenth- street station recently, fled with her waiting hero, Oscar Harland, a veteran of the Spanish war, and eluded pursuit until the next morn- ing, when the police took the young lady and her lover into custody. The daring escape of the girl was the result of an attempt on her mother's part to prevent her from keeping company with a former sol- dier, whom Miss Montejo had known and ad- mired since his return from the Philippines. It was decided by Mrs. Montejo that her daughter should be taken to the home of her grandmother at Coalinga. Everything was carefully ar- ranged, lest the ex-soldier should learn of the proposed move. But the girl managed to ap- prise her admirer, and he was on hand in due tim...

PROBABLY HER FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

PROBABLY HER FIRST.   Maternal rapture and business enterprise are effectively combined in a letter received by a London firm of baby-carriage builders. It runs: "Dear Sirs,—I have one of the loveliest babies imaginable, and tbe envy of the neighborhood, a photo, of which I beg to enclose. If you will present me with one of your baby carriages, I shall have much pleasure in recommending you to all my friends, which would undoubtedly be a better advertisement to you than the ordinary   papers." The sending of the photograph was an inspiration.

PARSONS AND SEAMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

PARSONS AND SEAMEN. A very good story is told of a journal devoted to religious topics. A clergyman was once ad- dressing a congregation of fishermen, and in order to appeal the more to his hearers, he introduced a number of nautical similes. He pictured a captain navigating his craft through a dangerous passage surrounded with rocks and currents, and he described the voyage in detail. At last he reached his climax, when it seemed inevitable that the ship should be lost. "And what shall we do now?" he made his captain cry. "Bless your soul, guvnor," replied a voice at the back, "That captain o' yours can't do nuthin.' He's sailing his ship starn foremost.'' CHUCK THE ANCHOR OVER.         This story, which is from an English exchange, seems to be based on one which is now unknown in Australia. A clergyman preaching at a Sailors' Home to a number of seamen, desiring to make himself more widely understood, likened sinful man to a stor...

SECRET MARRIAGES. WITH DRAMATIC SEQUELS. MOST UNHAPPY UNIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

SECRET MARRIAGES.   WITH DRAMATIC SEQUELS.     MOST UNHAPPY UNIONS. Not long ago the victim of a street accident—   a young gentleman—was carried into a London     hospital unconscious. As his hours were evi- dently numbered, a message was sent to his   parents, who lived in a large house in the West End, and soon afterwards they stood together   by the side of their only son. While they   struggled with their grief, a young lady, plainly   but neatly dressed, who was a complete stranger   to them, hurried up to the death-bed, and heed-   less of the onlookers, cast herself down in an ecstasy of intense anguish by the side of the   dying man. The mother was the first to recover   from her surprise.   "Who are you." she said, "to come, here at this   awful moment?"  ...

MURDER BY TELEPHONE. The following "story" is told by the "Sun":—   "An attempt to commit a murder by means of a   telephone is reported from Mascara, in Algeria.   The manager of the electric lighting station,   noticing that his telephone was out of order, at- tempted to disconnect the wire, and received a violent shock, causing him to fall senseless to the floor. It was afterwards discovered that a discharged workman had connected the wire on the high road with the electric light wire, on which there was a current of 10,000 volts."

THE HEART UPSIDE DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

THE HEART UPSIDE DOWN.   An American exchange says:—"Mrs. Charles   Conover, of Nanuet, New York, while sitting in   a chair on a piazza during a severe thunder-   storm, was shocked into unconciousness for   seven hours. After making an examination it is reported that the village doctor found that the shock had turned Mrs. Conover's heart upside down. Mrs. Conover is apparently as well as ever." We are not concerned about the health of Mrs. Conover. A woman who can stand an inverted heart can stand anything. But the state of the "village doctor" should certainly be in- quired into.

ARRANGING FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 28 December 1901

ARRANGING FLOWERS. Have you seen or heard of the new floral   aid wire stands which, placed in an open bowl,   enable one to arrange flowers in it to the best   advantage and with the greatest ease? It is   sometimes very difficult to induce flowers to "stay   put" in the ordinary jardiniere or bowl, but with   this invention one has simply to pass the stems through the loops, when they stand erect with-   out needing support from each other. Grasses   and foliage look their best when treated in this   way. The wire loops are fixed into a leaden stand of substantial weight, so that there is no fear of   the flowers being upset.

A NOVEL PHOTOGRAPH.   An enterprising photographer arranged matters so that a train was made to work the shutter of a camera, the shutter being controlled by an elec- tro-magnet, in whose circuit a contact was in- cluded that could be placed on the metals. On the arrival of the train the engine made the con- tact, the shutter was opened, the camera took the picture, and the shutter closed again immediately the train had passed.
