The designs of new fableics are evidently inspired by a tlelgr.apht.operator - all dots and dashes. Spots, stripes, checks and flowers, either separately or together, are safe things, and the louder your nmixture the better your form. Any two colors that swear at one another, as the French say, are in the very best possible taste now, and the fat lady who has all along mingled green and scarlet will be in the height of style if she only stick:s to h.r colors. Likewise the color. blind pteron who blends yellow and "voilet" in her honcet, will be considered neat and not gaudy-as a certain gentlemen is t:ad tao fae Irentmrksbd when he treated his tail to a coat of geCen pasnt.

THE AMERICAN CUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893

THE AMERICAN CUP. The recent international contest for the America Cup, the greatest yachtina event in tihe world, cost each of the owners-Lord ?-auraven and MrColarke-L23,000. Yachting is an expensive pastime, er tainly. In "Blackwood's Mhagzine." just to hand, the storv of the America Can is deli.htfull- told. We extract as folinws : "Well, if she be right then we are all wrong," said Lord Anglesey, shaking his headwith an air of finalityas he turned to stamp npand downthedeck of hisoreatenttor. yacht, the Pearl, after a lone look at the black snaky hull of the America, lying alongside in Cowes Roads. It was early in the Aungst of 1851 that the doughty old veteran uttered his sententious dictum. The America was right: and we were all wrong. And that is bow the chapter on modern yachting opens. Up tillthat date yachting had been re. garded as an exclusively English sport. Of foreign clubs we knew little; and, trlth to tell, there was little to know. The Russian Tsear had establishe...

Robinson pur chased a six-chambered revolver and 30 rounds of ammunition on Saturday morning in Downpatrick, and then proceeded to the house of his father-in law where his wife was ataying. She was seated with a child in her arms, her mother" sirting beside her. Immediately he entered the house Robinson discharged the revolver full in his wife's face. The bullet entered her mouth, traversed the jaw, and camoout below the ear. The poor woman lied to the house of a neighbor with the child in her arms, fol lowed by her mother. Robinson went after them, and renewed the attack upon his wife, firingather iivetimes. Reloading therevolver be fired twice at his mother-in-law, and then made off.

A Blockade Runner. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893

A Blockade Runner. Admiral Jouett tells an odd story of a V blockade-runner. He was in command of the Metacomet at the time, The blockade- a runner referred to was a slippery vessel. e She was so swilt that every attempt to a: catch her gad failed. Farragut declared el that she must be taken at all hazards, b and delegated the job to Jouett. "Jim," he said, " I count on you to fetch me that o bird, whatever happens." So it came about 1 that the Ietacoomet lay in wait for the a artful dodger on Campeachy Banks. There was reason to believe that she would come d that way before long. Meanwhile the com mander of the warship set to work to transform his ramit in such a manner that her own builder would not have recognised her. The first thing he did was to paint a broad streak all round her hull. Then he hoisted spars aloft and arranged them so as to look like double topsail yards, such as merchant. men carried in those days. By such devices the ve~sel was made to resemble a t Mexican tr...

A Canine Snake Skinner. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893

A Canine Snake Skinner. A prominent manufacturer of Germanton, in the United States, owns a setter dog called Brave, which has a singular liking for hunting bnakes. After killing one he places one paw on the reptile's head, and, seizing the neck with his teeth, he proceeds to skin it after the manner of skinning an eel, saye the" Cleveland World." Thee trophies he proudly carries to his master, who nails them on the woodshed, much to the satisfac tion of Brave. During a month's trip in Perry county ]rave's collection numbered forty-one skins, five of which had been stripped from good-sized rattlesnakes.

The School Mates. 4 'Tvas on a mild Septembher eve Two merry boys from school, Vith bhots in hand, proclaimed aloud, " Let's sail them in the pool." A millpond loug deserted, With banks o'er huub with gram, A snug retreat where merry boys The happy hours might peoa. They sailed their boata and bhouted loud, And clapped their hands with glee, To see their boats like sailing ships Glide o'er the mimic sea. At length the oldest msude a grasp To bring his boat again to land, Slipped off the bank into the pool Beyond all reach of helping hand. 1 His echoolmate, withquiregenerous thought, Plunged headlong in te pool, To rescue one he dearly loved, The pride of all the school; Twas more than vain, he could not save His omrade, though he tried, But true in friendship to the grave, Hand clasped in hand they died.

A Diving Torpedo Boat. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893

A Diving Torpedo Boat, The [.ondon ccrrespondent of the " 3Ju1 chester Courier" hears that the Admiralty has under consideration a new species of torpedo-b.at, constructed with a view of avoiding the nets with which ironclads are surrounded now a days. The latest invention claims to be able to dive under these obstacles, discharge the torpedo agairst the ship's bottom, and to return in a similar manner. " In other words, it partially realises the sub. marine vessels described by Jules Verne in A TbhusandLeagues Under the Sea. Theidea is scarcely original. Indeed, three or four patents of the kind were submitted to the American Government not very long ago. I believe, however, that they hardly fulfilled their pretensions, and that they were in con sequence, rejected. The English idea, how ever, is said by experts to be worked out with remarkable ingenuity, and may at least be considered a long step in advance of similar contrivances."

Jugglery in India. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893

Jugglery in India. Mr J. C. I)sri,, a traveller in India and One versed himself in the juggler's art, des cribes in the New York "l errld" some of the tricks with which Indian mystery men have sorely puzzled Europeans. We extract the following instances: THE MOSat ROD g E ls NE. Among the tricks that i saw performed yesterday was one that was apparently very remarkable. An old fakir came into the court of Vatson a' Hotel in Bombay, took an ordin ary bamboo walking stick from the hand of a bystander, threw it on the floor, and then with the assistance of a confederate epreadalargewhite cloak he wore over the cane. In a moment the cane began to move about, and be whisked the rcovering away, disclosinr a rather large sized cobra that crawled slowly along the floor until captured and replaced in the basket from whence it had been taken. The explanation is simple. The cobra was inside the cloak and was carefully stretched alongside the cane when the spread was thrown on the tloor. As soo...

SHARKS OF NEW YORK. In New York, if you are making bu a brief stay, do not, in parcelling out your time, overlook Broadway, the Central Plark, and Fifth Avenue. Begin (advises a cortes pendent of the "Daily News") at the bottom of Broadway, tne "down town' end, say from the Battery; and walk up to, say, the junction with Sixth Avenue, going round by the newspaper offices, the Post-oflice, the City Hall, Union Square and Madison square on your way. This, with a tour of Fifth Avenue and Cen tral Park, should tell you a good deal about the famous city which is the financial heart of the Republic. And all the while, as the sailors say, KEEP YOUGI WETIIEIT EYE OPENt. To beware of strangers s a good "line" any where and at any time. In New York and Chicago it should be imperative. Within four and twenty hours of my arrival in Broadway, sunning myself at the hotel entrance, a gentleman in a fur coat and flash with jewellery came uni with outstretched hand. " Ah ! low are yon, Colonel?" he ...

How Cremation is Effected. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893

f How Cremation is Effected. From the mouth of the furnace a long, narrow platform is built out, on the top of which are rails and a sort of grille or trolly, with two wheels under it at the outer end, says a correspondent. Oval shapod irons are placed on this trolly, and on them is placed the corpse, either in a light pine coffin, or what is far better and more appropriate, in a long wrapping of some light material which completely covers the body, head and all, and allows of its being lifted out of the coffin without its being in the least uncovered or unnecessarily handled. Once the corpse is in its place on the troily, with the head towards the furnace, the smallest pressure on the long lever handle of the trolly raises it without any difficulty, and the icorpse is gently and reverently glided into the furnace on the rails. The oval irons just rest on the sides of the groove which is meant to receive the ashes, and as soon, therefore, as every thing is in its appointed place the...

Parental Affection. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893

Parental Affection. The love of parents, especially mothers, for their offspring is a common and deep.seated characteristic of animal nature, ani this love is necessary for the preservation of the species, for without it the progeny n ould not survive. Creatures as low on the scale of animal life as the sea snails or worms guard their eggs. When danger threatens, even the common ear-wig sits over its tender young as an old hen does over its chickens, and many spiders place themselves as protectors over the balls in whicb they have concealed their eggs. Others carry their esns of eggs about with them.
