LIFE OF RAVENS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

LIFE OF RAVENS. It used to be believed that ravens lived longer than any other species of birds, and it was said that their age frequently exceeded a century. Recent studies of the subject indicate that no authentic instance of a raven surpassing 70 years of age is on record. But parrots have been known to live 100 years.

A DESPERATE ROBBER. SENSATIONAL TRIAL IN BAVABIA. A criminal trial, which has excited much in terest in Bavaria and in other parts of Germany, was brought to a conclusion on November 13.

EVERY DAY MISQUOTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

EVERY DAY MISQUOTATIONS. Even the least scholarly of us nowadays are prone to quotation, though we might not indulge ourselves quite so often if we believed a little more thoroughly that a little learning—usually misquoted "knowledge"—is a dangerous thing; , and that it is not safe to quote a phratse unless , you are familiar with the work in which it , occurs. , Take, for instance, "the even tenor of their , way." Poor G»ay never penned such a phrase in his "Elegy." What he wrote was "the noise less tenor of their way." Nathaniel LeS also suffers in "when Greek meets Greek, then comes the tug of war." What he wrote was "when > Greeks joined Greeks, then was the tug of war.' > Again, how often is '"but the tongue can no > man tame; it is an unruly evil" (James iii. 8) ) rendered "the tongue is an tinruly member"! ) "Charity shall cover the multitude of sins'* ) (1 Peter iv. 8) 13 usually distorted into "Charity ) covereth a multitude of sins." ) We are won't to talk about "...

Colonial Soldiers. AND THE WAR OFFICE. MR. SEDDON'S STRAIGHT TALK. THE COLONIES MUST NOT BE SNUBBED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

Colonial Soldiers. AND THE WAR OFFICE. —♦— MR. SBDDON'S STRAIGHT TALK. THE COLONIES MUST NOT BE SNUBBED. Speaking recently at the luncheon to the re turned troopers, the Premier of New Zealand (Mr. E. Seddon), mentioned the case of Private Tasker, of Wellington, Who was sentenced to im prisonment for baring slept at hWs post. There were, Mr. Seddon said, extenuating circumstances In this case. The young man had been very many hours in the saddle, and was so fatigued that there was a complete collapse. Of course, all soldiers knew that it was a very serious offence to fall asleep while on sentry duty. But that there were extenuating circumstances in this case had been shown by the facts that the General commanding had reduced the term of imprisonment, and that the War Office had stUl further reduced it, fixing a date in January next for the trooper's release. As soon as he was apprised of the matter, Mr. Bed don went on, he, through the proper and con stitutional channel, communicate...

KNIFE DUEL IN THE SEA. TWO FISHERMEN FIGHT AND KILL A THIRD. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

KNIFE DUEL IN THE SEA. —#— TWO FISHERMEN FIGHT AND KILL A THIRD. i Knife fights are common enough in Spain, and i are seldom reported by the newspapers, writes , a Madrid correspondent, but an att'air which oc curred betwen fishermen at Malag had features which take it out of the ordinary category. Two 1 brothers, Caparros, were disputing with one, Gaitan, on the seashore. From words they came to knives. Gaitan kept the brothers at bay for a time, but a third Caparros coming upon the scene he plunged into the water and swam out to sea. Two of the Caparros followed him, fore leg film to face them. Gaitan manoeuvred pluckily, avoiding his assailants' knife thrusts by diving, and every now and then getting otve home himself. All were good swimmers, and the contest appeared more like a fight of sea monsters than of human beings. On the shore were relatives of both parties, but none ventured In the water to separate the combatants. Some of Gaitan's friends, however, succeeded in driving ...

NEW M'KINLEY STORIES. NOW BEING COLLECTED FROM A VARIETY OF SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

NEW M'KINLfeY STORIES. NOW BEING COLLECTED % + FROM A VARIETY 07 SOURCES. ! Stories about President M'Kinley are now be ing collected from every possible source. Among the newest anecdotes are the following:— An intimate friend, with whom he was chatting one day on the subject of his will, remarked upon the smallness of the President's estate, where upon Mr. M'Kinley said: "No, I don't leave much, but what I do leave was honestly acquired, for it never cost anybody a tear nor my country a penny." A number of Senators were talking on the different forces and powers of the world, and the conversation drifted to the subject of the heads of States. "I don't envy any one of them that power which Providence has given to them," said the President, "but there is one thing of which I may be allowed to boast, which is, I fear no man. I fear neither the revolver of the burglar nor the spleen of an injured citizen"—a curious and ) pathetic sentiment in the light of what occurred s at Buffalo. {...

THE LATE LORD RUSSELL'S EARNINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

THE LATE LORD RUSSELL'S EARNINGS. How much does a great advocate make at tha bar? The question is often asked, and all torts of rumors pass current. Authentic information is seldom given. The following lfast which has been collected from Mr. O'Brien's "Life of Lord Bussell" may, therefore, be interesting. It gives the amount of his fees for each of the 35 years of his practice. Here are a few typical instances:— 1850 £117 1860 261 1861 441 | 1882 1,016 1865 2,171 1867 3,108 1873 6,400 1874 £10,800 1878 11,102 1879 9,920 1882 18,133 1888 15,777 1891 13,783 1893 22,517

THE KING'S COINAGE. WHAT THE NEW CURRENCY WILL BE LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

THE KING'S COINAGE. WHAT THE NEW CT7BBENCY WILL BE r.nra His Majesty's new coinage will shortly come , Into circulation—probably in March. Mr. G. W. i de Saulles, the engraver to the Royal Mint, has i finished his designs for the new series, but the 1 authorities preserve a strict silence in regard 1 to the new features and embellishments that will distinguish the different values. The Edward coinage will be the first Issue of the 20th century, and very naturally specula tion is rife among collectors and numismatists. It is, however, considered probable that the bronze coins will bear on the reverse side the * figure of Britannia as she appears in the present issue. The bronze coinage has a strange history. When Mr. Leonard Charles Wyon succeeded his . father as engraver of the Royal Mint his first design was the old copper series of 1860. It was remarkable for three things. The metal wee an amalgam of copper, tin, and zinc, the "ship and 1 lighthouse" were introduced for the. first...

A COSTLY COURT-MARTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

A COSTLT COTTBT-MABTIAL. # The Americans are making amusing: calcula tions about a little Incident in connection with their new colonies. It seems that a certain com mander in their navy was charged with intoxica tion on a certain day when he should have been Engaged In administering the government of the little Polynesian islet oyer whose destinies be presides. He wias ordered to be tried by Court martial. Thereupon two warships were despatched from San Francisco, bearing three rear-admirals and the other legal necessities lor giving the alleged offender a fair trial. Ingenious statisticians figure the cost of this expedition—including coal —at some £30,000. A New York paper is probably correct in stat ing that this "constitutes a record;" and that no nation has ever before expended such a cum in order to determine whether a "particular man •was drunk or sober at a particular moment." It does seem a Small nut for two warships to crack.

An Up-To-Date Mail Cart. SENATOR DRAKE'S IDEAS. FOR DISTRIBUTING MAIL MATTER. NEWSPAPERS AND GROCERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

An Up-To-Date Mail Cart. SENATOR DRAKE'S IDEAS. FOR DISTRIBUTING MAIL MATTER. NEWSPAPERS AND GROCERIES. In the words beneath the sketch   Postmaster-General Drake expressed his   view of the importance of the Post-office to the numbers of   people whom circum- stances compel to live "away back." This is not sur- prising from a man like Senator Drake, whose ideas on mo- dern postal progress travel even more slowly than the bul- lock-dray which sym- bolises his "modern" post-office. Why should a man take his mail matter like he takes his gro- ceries? Senator Drake's ar- gument is that the post-office, which has hitherto been regard- ed as the swiftest means of distributing knowledge, must be no more amenable to that end than the car- rier's waggon. If the newspapers contain- ing latest news, with telegrams and cables from the world at large, procured at great cost, travels along to its remote destination at the same rate of speed as the soap, the...

LONDON'S BRILLIANCE. THIS (CORONATION) YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

LONDON'S BRILLIANCE. THIS (CORONATION) YEAR.   If this year in London is not wonderfully bril- liant, prophecy will be sadly at fault. After all, it is prophesying after Mark Twain's advice, partially because we do not know that, all going well, it will be a great season. Smart London bachelors are contemplating a ball, and that if this comes off it will be on a magnificent scale is certain. There are so many rich and smart unmarried men in town. One was given once to the King and Queen when they were Prince and Princess of Wales, and it took place in Baron Grant's House in Kensington Gore, and was by London bachelors. Where the coming ball of this kind would be given is a question; the bachelor who has the largest mansion is Captain Holford, the King's Equerry; even his house, however, might not prove large enough now. It is also on the cards that the officers of the Household Cavalry may give a ball. Many   of them are young married men. There is the Marq...

The King's Pants. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

The King's Pants.   (BY DICK SWIVEL-EYE.) It was a dark and stormy night. 'Twas New Year's Eve. It was that night upon which the youth of this great island-continent exhausts its ener- gies by carrying signboards away and lifting heavy gates off their hinges. The eminent statesman sat in his study and pondered. "Ha, ha," he muttered; "shall I, when the aurora of morn doth illuminate the horizon, dis- cover myself to be even as this even?" "Shall I, too, be a dark and stormy knight?"   These remarks, like so many of the cogita- tions of great statesmen, were addressed to vacancy. "Am I to become a beknighted politician?" There came a soft footfall along the hall. It belonged to a ghost. It was an evil spirit, but it wasn't quite as bad as they keep in the threepenny bars these times. I mean it was not as bad as they sell in the threepenny bars. As a matter of fact, they keep the best of spirits, and Sell the worst. Need it be said that the statesman who pon-...

DEFIES KNIFE AND BULLET. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

DEFIES KNIFE AND BULLET.   As a means of circumventing the attacks of anarchists, an Austrian scientist has designed a marvellous bullet-proof material. It is described as a fine white cloth resembling silk, yet its resisting qualities are so great that in ordinary circumstances neither knife nor bullet will penetrate it. A visitor to the laboratory of the inventor states that he fired several times with a revolver (at a distance of four paces) at a lay figure, made to imitate the consistency of the human body, and attired in the bullet-proof cloth. The bullets simply rebounded and fell to the ground. Then with knives and daggers he stabbed vigor- ously at the figure, but the marvellous cloth resisted the point of the weapon. The composition of the fabric is, of course, a secret, but the inventor explained the principle of it by stating that its repelling power lay chiefly   in the method of weaving, which resisted con- cussion by distributing the blow of k...

A DOUBLE-HEADED SNAKE. IN THE NEW YORK ZOO. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

A DOUBLE-HEADED SNAKE. IN THE NEW YORK ZOO. A two-headed snake has recently been placed in the Zoological Park, New York. The keeper says that when food is offered to the reptile one head fights the other, and each tries to bite its rival. The writer has not seen the snake fed, but the necks do not look long enough to allow the heads to bite each other. Then, again, the snake is not poisonous; but, of course, the snake does not know that. It does not seem as if the fight ought to prevent either head getting anything. If either managed to swallow food it would pro- bably be just as nourishing as if both had done so, though, of course, one throat might be left feeling hungry. What will probably prove the snake's salvation is that he does not refuse to drink. If one of the heads had to pay for the drinks there might be trouble, but as long as the Zoological Society sets them up the two heads drink together as cheerfully as if they belonged to separate drunk- ards. And one can live for ...

A MISSING TREASURE CHEST. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

A MISSING TREASURE CHEST.   In the vaults of the Bank of England there are boxes of plate and jewellery which have lain there unclaimed for generations. The rightful owners are unknown, and unless the contents are ex- amined they never will be known. That these receptacles, in some cases at least, would be found to contain clues to the rightful heirs was proved (says "Chambers' Journal") by an acci- dent which occurred a few years ago. The bank porters had occasion to move an old chest which had remained undisturbed for time out of living memory; on being moved it fell to pieces, and disclosed a quantity of heavy silver plate of the time of Charles II., and a bundle of letters writ- ten during the same reign. Search through the old records of the bank revealed the name of the original depositor, and the plate and letters were made over to the living descendants of the owner. The chest bore no apparent marks outside by which it could be identified. If it had ever borne a...

THE HUGEST ANIMAL The hugest animal alive or dead that is known to us has been discovered in a fossil state by Professor Reed, of the University of Wyoming, in the Laramie beds, U.S. The monster was a dinosaur, about 130ft. long and 35ft. high, and weighing 40 tons. One of its lesser bones can hardly be lifted by a man. Its neck is 30ft., and its tail 50ft. long. Its body is large, but its head comparatively small.

JIMMY "SEES A MAN." [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902

JIMMY "SEES A MAN" He was a small man, and a cantankerous one, smelling strongly of yesterday's rum, and the onions in vinegar of the free lunch counter. "De Wet," he said, "De Wet, o'ee's all right, why that bloke's bin cornered an' capshured an' cut off to a hextent—but that remines me, I ain't De Wet meself; I'm d—dry!" And the orator looked anxiously and inquiringly at his audience, whose averted faces plainly showed a disinclina- tion to take a hint. The small speechifier re- sumed—"Yus! I knows a gent, when I sees one, though that ain't orfen, Lord knows. It's 'ot, Mister," he said, with a skillful move in my direction. " 'Ot, ain't it? 'Orrible 'ot, hif I'm a judge, an' I ain't no new chum neither. Look 'ere, mister, it ain't no good givin' away hinfer- mashin to them coves. Wot do they know about ennythink, hey?
