BOXING DAY. LIVERPOOL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
BOXING DAY. LIVERPOOL RACES. Races and athletic sports, promoted by Host Brewer, of the Golden Fleece Hotel, who was assisted by a strong local committee, were held at Woodlands Racecourse. Close upon 1000 persons attended. The gathering reminded one muchly of the old racing days. Here and there could be seen a family enjoy- ing themselves in true pic-nic fashion, while others indulged in the light fantastic to the strains of an excellent string band. Consider- able interest was evinced in the various events, which were well contested. The officials left no room for complaint and every- thing passed off satisfactorily. The final event —a fat sheep race—caused considerable merriment, the sheep soon out-pacing its followers, who were reluctantly forced to relinquish the chase. Appended are the results : Handicap Footrace, 100 yards.-Jones 1, C. Thorn 2. Pony Race, 12 hands, 3 furlongs.-Mr. G. Hughes, Jennie 1, Mr. A. Randall's Zara 2, Mr. J. Thorn's Quiver 3. Sack Race, 50 yards.-C. T...
CHAPTER III. NEW ACQUAINTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CHAPTER III. NEW ACQUAINTANCES. There are some things of which one cannot write,-things which long after the event need but the opportunity to spring into new life and to spring again with the old bitter pain almost as they stung so long ago. I cannot write of what I felt on that spring afternoon in the convalescent ward, when it dawned on me that I was a stranger and the fears that had haunted me so long seemed &nbsp; about to be more than realized. Yes, more &nbsp; than realized, for somehow, such I suppose is the innate selfishness of man, this seemed &nbsp; to me the bitterest thing of all. To have found that I had followed a will-o'-the wisp through all my wanderings would have been bitter enough ; to have found my Alice only a wreok of her former self, the mere shell without the spirit or the mind, that would have been terrible indeed ; but to find her thus,-to see her more lovely than ever, her voice as musical, her words as reasonable, her eyes as ful...
CHAPTER IV: THE SHADOW OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
CHAPTER IV: THE SHADOW 0F THE PAST. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Charlie had undertaken to write this, but for some reason he has asked me to do it in his place. I cannot help thinking this a pity, for I am quite sure he would have done it so much better than I can hope to do : but I am beginning to fancy Charlie has found out, just as Elsie did so long ago, that I am very easily persuaded to do things for people I care for. Charlie says it was all my doing that Captain Jervis ever came out here at all, and so it is only fair I should tell all about it,-just as if I had sent that advertisement to the 'Times,' a thing I'm &nbsp; quite sure I should never have thought of as long as I lived, though it was the very best thing to do, of course. All I bad to do with it was suggesting that that he ought to make inquiries about her friends before he married our dear Helen- I ought to call her Alice now, of course, but I think she will always be Helen to me. He didn't...
SHORT STORY THE GATEWAY OF THE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THE GATEWAY OF THE MOUN- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TAINS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Fab away in the lonely wilderness of rock and forest which forms the northern portion &nbsp; of British Columbia, a camp-fire roared be- neath the mighty redwoods. Eddying wreath of fragrant smoke rolled away be- &nbsp; neath the canopy of whispering needles, while the flickering glow shone on rough barked trunks, ten feet in diameter, which were old a thousand years ago, and lighted up the weather-beaten faces of the men who lay around. They were a company of free prospectors who had foregathered by nameless lake and risky ford, in the heart of a lonely land, and were now pressing south towards civilization before the northern winter choked every pass with snow. Some of the tattered, travelled-stained group were native Canadians, frozen-out wheat growers from the eastern plains, miners and lumbermen to the manner born. The rest were of the rank a...
LECTURE BY MR. J. L. THOMPSON. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
LECTURE BY MR. J. L. THOMPSON. On Wednesday of last week, Mr. J. L. Thompson, of the Department of Agriculture, delivered a lecture in the Assembly Hall, Balmoral. &nbsp; The lecturer lost no time over conventionalities, but struck into his subject at once, and paraded in rapid succession the following subjects:- Culture of the soil (deep and shallow), drainage, farm implements, manures, irrigation, fruit culture, etc. Mr. Thompson advised generally deep culture, &nbsp; especially where there is good depth of soil, and said that drainage was essential to success, with but few exceptions, as gravelly subsoils or natural drainings. Manuring the soil judiciously engaged the attention of every successful farmer. Ancients knew this who had no patent manures, but they had recourse to green manure, which are not too highly appreciated in our days, for green manures captivate and reserve the nitrogens of the rainfall (about 30lbs, per acre per annum). This, fruit- &n...

LOCAL AID GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
LOCAL AND GENERAL. &nbsp; Constables Furlong, McLean (Liverpool) and McKinley (Smithfield) have been ap- pointed sanitary inspectors for the Police District of Liverpool. Meetings, in connection with a week of united and universal prayer, will be held in the Presbyterian Church on Monday evening next, St. Luke's School-room on Thursday evening next, and Wesleyan Church on Fri- day evening next. The meetings will com- menee at 8 o'clock. We regret to record tho death of Mrs. Weston, wife of Mr. R. Weston, which took place at her residence, Bigge-street, on Thurs- day last.

THE SIZE OF HIS SHOE IS TWENTY-FOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THE SIZE OF HIS SHOE IS TWENTY- FOUR. Chang Woo Gow, in his time, a well- known Chinese giant, measured 8ft. 2in., exactly the same height as Mr. Wilkins, who during the early part of the past sum- mer was the attraction of attractions at un- fortunate Olympia. He is now only twenty two years of age, and at eighteen was almost his present height ; at birth his weight was lO½lb., now it is 386lb. Nearly all his relations are of but average statute; he himself did not [grow until his fourth year, and it was generally supposed that he would become the champion dwarf ; the Fates, however, ordained exactly the contrary. His hands and feet are no mean parts of his anatomy : he takes a twenty-four shoe and a fourteen glove, while he wears a ring as big as a half-crown. His head is large and contains a good supply of useful brains ; he has more than the usual amount of intelli- gence, being skilled both as a musician and photographer. 9½ is his size in hats and he &nbsp; adorns his ...
MARRIED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
MARRIED BY LIGHTNING. A strange phenomenon has for 3 years excited amazement in N. Texas. Three years ago Anson Kellar owned 400 acres of &nbsp; land. Twenty-five or 30 years of age, tall, muscular, an American by the blood of several generations, a Westerner by birth, he was a splendid type of his race, and held his honour in higher esteem than his worldly wealth. Cotton picking was over, and Anson had raised a good crop. Joe Boyd was taking a load of cotton to market, and Anson was with him that afternoon. The morning had been sultry, and banks of dark clouds were now rolling together from the prairies of the south-west, and forming a dark, massive front as if the Sierra Madre had torn from their moorings and were MOVING NORTHWARD and all their foot hills were crowding their summits, all their streams turned to streaks of flame, darting in fiery twistings from summit to base or hiding themselves within the blackness of that dark bosom of cloud of flame, except to remark al...
THE QUEEN'S FAVOURITE DIAMOND [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THE QUEEN'S FAVOURITE DIAMOND The sensational report of the theft of one of the great diamonds of the world turns out to be an invention of some enterprising news agency ; it recalls what at first blush would seem to be a far more improbable story con- nected with the Koh-i-Noor. No imagin- ative reporter would have had daring enough to invent the John Lawrence (afterwards Lord Lawrence) story. When the historic gem came into the possession of the East India Company it was handed by the board to John Lawrence for safe keeping. He slipped the small box that contained the stone into his pooket, and forgot all about it until after some days, when it was suggested that he should despatch it to her Majesty. Then he remembered that he had forgotten it. Where was it ? With unusual eagerness he asked his servant if he had seen a small &nbsp; box in one of his pockets. 'Yes, sahib,' &nbsp; was the calm reply, ' I found it and put it into one of your trunks.' 'Bring it here an...
The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
THE LIVERPOOL HERALD, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 1898. We will have just entered upon another year, which, if we may judge of the past, will be fraught with joys and sorrows incidental to humanity. During the past year we have had to record the death of some of our oldest and most prominent residents-men and women who have adorned their homes and commanded the respect and esteem of all with whom they came in contact; yet these incidents, painful as they have been to those bereaved, have failed to check the progress of Time and we have added another year towards Eternity. When we look round we cannot help wondering why it is, "in the eternal fitness of things," that so many useless mortals are allowed to remain burdens upon society, while those who have added their quota to the progress of the district, and have been the light of their household, have been hurried " to that borne from which no &nbsp; traveller returns." But, probably, these mystrie...
CAN THE ETHIOPIAN CHANGE HIS SKIN? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
GAN THE ETHIOPIAN CHANGE HIS SKIN ? An American trader living in the Fifteenth Arrondissement of Paris recently invented a lotion which, according to the advertise- ments, would render the negro's skin as white as milk. A poor negress, attracted by this announcement, used the whole of her savings in the purchase of bottles con- taining the miraculous fluid, and conscient- iously applied it to her skin. After suffer- ing for some days from an intolerable itch- ing the body of the young woman certainly changed its colour, but, far from becoming white, it became a bright red. The negress would have consoled herself if the colour had been a natural one. Alas ! it was only an inflammation of the skin, and tbe unfortu- nate negress was taken very ill. The would- be doctor has now to appear before the Court for selling an unlawful medicine.
GURKHAS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
GURKHAS. Our bravest native troops in India are without doubt the Gurkas. No instance exists on record of a Gurkha soldier having been overtaken by panic, or, however trying the circumstances in which they have been placed, of their having failed in their duty against any eueuiy. The pugnacity and love of fighting for fighting's sake which is &nbsp; inherent in a Gurkha id coupled with a very remarkable coolness in a sudden emergency, readiness to act, and complete disregard and indifference to personal danger. A sudden and unexpected attack will often cause the best of troops to seek cover until a counter- stroke can be organised ; but the first impulse &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; of the Gurkha under such circumstances is to get at the aggressor, to come to close quarters for choice, or at least to reach his &nbsp; enemy with a bullet. It is noticeable, too, that the staunch qualities of the Gurkhas have never been more conspicuous than in the hour ...
COULD HE MANAGE IT? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
GOULD HE MANAGE IT? During the early days of Mr. Gladstone's recent holiday in Perthshire, the weather was most unfavourable to harvesters. Two farmers met in the vicinity of Butter- stone House, near Dunkeld- Mr. Gladstone's holiday residence- and the following dia- logue took place :- First Farmer; Man, this is awfu' bad harvest weather. Second Farmer : Ay, I'm doo'tin the heavy rains 'll spoil the crops. First Farmer: Man Sandy, I was won- derin' if twa or three o's couldna' gang up by an' see if Mester Gladstone wid intercede- wi' the Lord, an' lat's get the crops in !
PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898
PERSONALITIES. A naval writer says that neither Casa- bianca nor his father perished on a burning ship. They were drowned while swimming for the boats. The early morning cup of tea has con- quered General Booth, who has battled against the desire for it for a long time, but now confesses that he enjoys his bedside-cup as muoh as any fashionable beauty does hers. In order to signalise his appreciation of the good fight fought for Italy's honour by the Count of Turin, the King of Italy has presented that much-beloved nephew with a splendid sword, upon which the date of the duel is engraved. When Princess Louise, Marchioness of Lorne, wants to preserve her incognita she travels as Liay Sunbridge. It was as Lord Sunbridge that the Duke of Argyll sat in the House of Lords until he was created a duke of the United Kingdom. Though she was taught English as a girl, the German Empress is not very clever at other speaking or writing the language, and on one of the letters she forwarded to her...
