GOLD AND BLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

GOLD AND BLOOD. MANY years ago I knew a man who expended a great part of a large fortune in buying gold, in coin and in bars. This he melted, and with human blood and other unique ingredients, laboured secretly to prepare a mixture that should arrest all disease, renew vitality, and prolong life indefinitely.. I need hardly, say that he failed. Not only did he fail, but one day an explosion 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 days were past in an asylum. Yet he was not the first man who tried that same.experiment, not by thousands. To find 'the elixir of life was one of the main purposes of the science of .alchemy, the barbaric ancestor of ithe modern science ot' chemistry. But all that is now discredited. No doctor or student of healing even pretends to .possess or to seek un .essence of life. What is undertaken, however, and successfully, is to ascertain the-truth about natu...

ENGLISH LETTER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

ENGLISH LETTER. I The revival of the dainty sash was well timed by Dame Fashion, for it puts in an appearance when evening gowns reign sup- reme and elegant fussiness is a la mode. Nothing imparts so charming and artistic an effeot to a ball toilette as a sash of orope-de Ohine, chiffon, or mousseline-de-soie. Of i course, it muBt be quite understood that the present sash is not merely a piece of ribbon passed round the waist and tied in a bow with long ends at the back, like the sash of ! old times. It is au affair of elaboration, much be-fnUed and aaorned with ruches. A skilful arrangement ia also essential to its sucoess. The sash, oomposed of moire or soft peau-de-soie ribbon about «ix inches in width, is bordered with a tiny ruche of chiffon, its ends being finished off with & frill of accordion-pleated chiffon. If the sash is of soft material like chiffon, it is often knotted on the left side of the front. If of silk it is crossed on the left, and pinued with a fancy b...

SHORT STORY A CONVERT OF THE MISSION. III.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

» A CONVERT OF THE MISSION, ra.-(Continued.) As he placed it half shyly in a glaes on his table, a wonderful thought occurred to him. "Was not the episode of last night a Bpeoial providence? Was not that young girl, wayward and childlike, a meie neophyte in her idolatrous religion, as yet uneteeped in sloth and ignorance, presented to him as a brand to be snatched from the burning P WaB not this the opportunity of conversation he had loDged for P The chance of exercising his gifts of exhortation, that he had been hiding in the napkin of Bolitude and seclusion? Nay, was not all this predestined? His illness, his consequent exile to this land of false gods-this contiguity to the Mission -was not all this part of a supremely ordered plan for tho girl's salvation-and was he not eleoted and ordained for that ser- vice? Nay, more, was not the girl herself a mero unconscious instrument in the hands of a higher power ; was not her voluntary at- tempt to accompany him in bis devotional exerc...

"THOSE TWO." Tun amethystine linea of ovoning wero grow- ing into darker purples and the purples into blank.

THE MAN IN THE CAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

THE MAN IN THE GAGE. Since Napoleon died on St. Helena there has been no prisoner so oaref-*-liy guarded as ex-Oapt. Dreyfus is now in the Ile Du Diablo, off the coast of French Guiaua. He is the must famous political prisonor on earth to-day, the moat carefully guarded, tho most closely watohcd, the subject of the keenest anxiety. Ho was not a patriot and a reformer overborne by superior force, like Arabi Pasha, but a traitor-so they said and. nobody, cares much what becomes of him. Nobody, that is, except tho high authorities who tremble at the idea of his escaping. If If he really ia au innocent scapegoat for official sinners in high plaoes, the Isle of the Devil holds ono of the most deeply injured of 'mon; Probably !a majority of the people of Franco really believe he it» a viotim, not a criminal, and the feeling is likely to make trouble yet for men in high plaoes. It will bo a thrilling day for Franoe' when that happens. There is a great crusade in France whioh has for its ob...

ELECTION OF MAYOR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

ELECTION OF MAYOR A SPECIAL meeting of the Liverpool Council was held at the Council Chamber on Tuesday evening last for the purpose of electing a Mayor for the current municipal year. Present—the Mayor (Alderman Moreshead) and Aldermen Chapman, H. Scrivener, Tillett, C. A. Scrivener, Christiansen, Cole, Smith and Marsden. About fifty ratepayers attended. Before proceeding with the business of the evening, Alderman Tillett claimed privilege to draw attention to the unsatisfactory condition of the municipal lists. He did not wish to deal with outside complaints, but would confine himself to a case which came personally under his notice, where a ratepayer (Mr. Wilcoxon) on going to re- cord his vote found that his name had disap- peared from the list and was disfranchised in con- sequence. Of course he quite understood that any ratepayer had a chance of inspecting the lists, which were exhibited in terms of the Act for that purpose, still it was only fair for a ratepayer, whose name h...

Hartge at the West Ward booth and Mr. 0. Browne at the South Ward booth. The voting pro- ceeded quietly during the forenoon, but was somewhat brisk from that till the close of the poll. Several ratepayers expressed dissatis- faction at finding themselves disfranchised, either through their rates nor being paid or their names being omitted from the roll, and all sorts of uncomplimentary remarks were made respecting the conduct of the election.

SEASONABLE DISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898

Drain and dry them, and peel off the outer and inner skin. Stuff the orop of tho bird with sausage meat, to wbiah the thinly-grated rind of a small lemon has been added.

CAPTAIN WEBB. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 February 1898

CAPTAIN WEBB. A deed of heroism performed by Captain Webb, the Channel swimmor, is recorded. It was in the year 1873, when Webb was in servioe aboard the steamship Russia. On April 2nd of that year the vessel was run- ning before a stiff breeze at the rate of fourteen knots an hour from New York to Liverpool, when a seaman named Michael Hynes, who was at work iu the rigging lost his hold and fell into the sea. The height of the surges and the epeod at whioh the Russia was sliding through the water made rescue hazardous, but Webb went overboard in a twinkling. Before him when he reached the surface after his dive, waa the wet black hull of the flying steamer, already trailing a long wake to his struggling shape ; behind him was a small dark object bobbing between the white crests. Unhesitatingly he turned from safely to danger, aod swam baok along the line of the steamer's track. The black objeot was not tho head of tha sailor, but merely his cap. Webb soized it and swam up and down ...

MADAME MELBA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 February 1898

MADAME MELBA. Of all the great singers who charm the World, Madame Molbu is certainly one of the most popular, and deservedly so. # She ia as delightful and womanly as she 'is musioal, and when that is said ouo can flay nothing higher in her praise. Great artists belong to the world, and not to any partioular nation, but by birth Madame Melba íb an Australian. When about twelve year» old her singing was already remark- able, and after having had a few lesHons in voice produotion nho was taken to Paris, and there placed under the inetruotion of the noted Madamo Marches!. Her first appear ance was in 1887 at Brussels, where fiho mado a brilliant suoooafl in the part of Gilda in Rigolotto at the Thoatro de la Monnaie.

DUOHESS OF TEOK. In connection with tho death of tho Duohesa of Teok it is worth mentioning that an exceedingly important contribution to her history and that of her daughter, the Duchess «.f York, was suppressed. Whon the Princess May waa to be married to the Dake of York her mother, along with a lady who was prominent in the philanthropic enterprises specially fostered by the Duohess of Teok and her daughter, prepared a memoir of the Íirinoess's life up to the time of hbrmairiage. t contained a very large number of very interesting personal details, and was splendidly produoed, with many illustrations. Only two hundred copies wore4 printed, and they were meant for private circulation as gift books. It was thought expedient to submit the proof sheets to the Queen, who who read them, and at once vetoed the pub- lication, considering that it was of too intimate a kind.

QUITE A WILL O' THE WISP. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 February 1898

QUITE A WILL O' THE WISP. Prince Mestoherksky, managing editor of tho ' Grashdanin,' of St. Petersburg, who lately viaited Paris with tho object of enlist- ing the support of French politicians and journalists in advocating the idea of a rapproaohment between France, Russia, and Germany as directed against Great Britain, admits in a letter written to his paper that everyone in Paris, without distinotion of party, whom, he addressed on tho subjeot positively declined to lend oountenanoe to any such sohenio. The Prince recognises that his efforts have now met «vith a merely temporary check, and expressed his firm con- viction that no rapproaohment between France and Germany will bo possible, even through the intermediary cf Russia, so long as the question of Alsace-Lorraine subsists, and this in spite of the hostility felt by a great part of the French public towards' Great Britain.

ENGLISH LETTER. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 February 1898

ENGLISH LETTER. I. An unsatisfactory decree has gone forth regarding the length of skirts, whioh, if adopted will greatly affect the comfort and convenience of women. It is, that the sen- sible fashion of wearing skirts to clear the ground is about to bo replaced by longer skirts. These, if they come in contact with damp, muddy pavements, are bound to sweep up all contamination and onuse injury to health. Besides, the disagreeable and often laborious tank whioh the brushing and oleansing entail is one whioh all women will readily dispense with. When a skirt is not made to escape the gronnd ontirely it necessitates the use of a good, durable bind- ing, and one that is impervious to wator. The latest introduction it] the lip-skirt bind- ing. It is easily applied, and is an admir- able protection to the edge of a skirt from dirt and friotion. ii. Black, white, every poshiblo shade of deep tinted blue, green, brown, violet, plum, .claret, and groy ate the fashionable oolours fordresir m...

GRAPE VINES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 February 1898

GRAPE VINES. Late Fruited Vines, in a general way, have ripened their leaves, or will shortly do so, evon whero artificial heat has not been employed. As soon as the leaves turn brown the canes should bo pruned. Thá operation is very simple. Out all lateral, or side shoots, back to within one bud of their base. By so doing each will have the nucleus for another strong young lateral for next year's growth. The only exceptions to this praotice are if occasionally an old lateral has made unusually strong growth with finely - developed, streng bud?, this may be shortened baok to the moit prominent bud, if room can bo- fouud for additional leaves, without undue crowding, as upon such exceptionally large fine bunohes of fruit are often pro- duced. It may be well at the pruning season, to remind amateur growers they oannot hope to grow good Grapes if they maintain their Vines too thick or too near to the glass. Under suoh conditions, the leaver formed are small, and, as a consequence, the ...
