THE REASON OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 26 February 1898
THE REASON OF IT. WHEN you see a young man sitting in a par- lour, with tho ugliest l'onr-year-old boy that over frightened himself in the mirror clamber- ing over his knees, jerking his necktie out of place, rumpling his shirt-front, pulling his hair, kicking hts shins, feeling in nil his [lockets for coppers, bombarding him from timo to timo with various bits of light furnituro, calling him names ut tho top of his lungs, and yelling incessantly for him io como out in tho garden and play, while the unresisting victim smiles all tho time liku tho cover of a comic almanac, you may safely say, although there isn't tho sign of n girl apparent in a radius of ton thousand miles, that tho howling hoy has a sister who is in a room not twenty foot away and that the young man doesn't como there just for the fun of playing with her brother.

PERSONALITIES. CARVALHO. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
PIESOIÀMOS. -? CARVALHO. Tbe paralytic seizure of M. Leon Oarvalho ended m his death at the age of seventy six. Even his own son never knew his father's age before he died. Some time ago the deceased showed him a sealed envelope, and said: 'This is my birth certificate When you want it you will find it in the tipper right hand d rawer of that desk ; but I do not suppose that you will have oocasion to look into into it as loug as I am alive.' Leon Oarvalho was a highly-successful operatic manager. Thirty years ago or so he won European eelebrity by his manage- ment of the Theatre Lyrique, for which Gounod composed 4 Mireille.' His wife, Mdlle Miolan (only recently dead) was the original Marguerite of Gounod's 4 Faust.'
DO YOU KNOW? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
DO YOU KNOW P When making soup from hones, break them up into very small pieoes, to extraot the maximum amount of goodness. A good polish for brasswork oonsists of rotten «tone made into a paste with sweet oil. Good sandpaper does not oraok when foldod double. It should always be kept in a dry plaoe. Ground mustard, mixed with a little water, will thoroughly cleanse the hands after dis agreeable or strongly smolling substances have been handled. Ooal-dust, moistened and pressed into balls, may bo used to supplement your fuel. When buying boots or shoes, both feet should always be tried on. Sometimes both, do not flt. Stout buttonholes for children's olothes may be made by laying round a pieoe^f oordl and working the buttonhole over it.
AT A WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
AT A WEDDING-. The bridegroom, who was a dook labourer, . -was unable to get the ring over the some- what enlarged knuckle of his bride's finger. For some moments I watched his efforts in silence, and then suggested it would serve the same purpose if he held the ring at the spot whioh it had reached and repeated the necessary words after me. But this did not suit his sense of propriety. So with inimitable sang froid he put the lady's fia Ser in his mouth and Hoked it all over, ompleto success attended this plan, and the ring Blipped easily to its place ; but the soene, with the perfect gravity whioh charac- terised it, vvas a sore trial to a novice. The Hame writer describes a village funeral at which one of the family produced a whisky bottle while tho service was going on and solemnly passed it around among the mourners. Of a parish derk who bad oharge of a graveyard, he writes :-I re- member his saying one day, when I hap- pened to remark on the number of burials, that it was qui...

TRAVELLER. AN EX-SIGNALMAN'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
AN EX-SIGNALMAN'S STORY s I was signalman at Carlisle South Cabin about three months after the opening of the new Midland route, via Settla. I was on the night shift, and after giving the signals fora coal tram to pass to the North, via the goods line at the baok of the station, I sat down and fell asleep. I was awakened by a shrill whistling, and, jumping up, looked toward the station and saw the red tail lampa of the coal train. At this moment another loud whistle sounded in the opposite direction; Turning, I was horrified to see tho Pullman Express oomiag at lull speed. In a moment I re- versed the levers, and the express rushed past me into the station. Had I been a minute later it would have been dashed into the goods train, and the loss of life would have been teirible. No one, not even the railway officials, ever knew of my care- lessness.
THE LIGHT THAT CAST NO SHADOW. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
THE, LIGHT THAT CAST NO SHADOW. CURIOUS stories are told about tho powers po sossed by certain natives of India, who live i among the Himalaya mountains. These old mt it is said, have devoted scores of years to tl study of natural laws and forces,-which the re of tho world knows nothing about. Lately German professor visited the adepts," as thei queer Hindus are called, for the purpose ( finding out the secret of their remarkable porforn anees. They treated him rather scurvily, but ii terested him all the same. One day the pn fessor wanted to examine some ancient Sanskr manuscripts. An adept went with him to a ca\ wherein the hooks were-kept. The place was £ clark as the bottom of a well. " I can't see to read, hore," said the visitor. " Then we will have some light," was the rcpl^ and immediately (the professor says) a sof pearly light brightened the cave. Ho could nc tell whence it came, but he noticed that it had on strange quality-it cast not the slighest shndow. This a story ha...
THE VALUE OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
THE VALUE OF SILA.GE. The value of ensilage is one worthy of atten- tion of every dairy farmer, especially in this district, where suooeus in dairying ia of para- mount importance. Tho folio wing1 from a reoent isBue of the Agricultural Gazette, will bo read with interest: - A good deal hus beeu written as to tho value of silage und in some instances its importance lins been over-estimated. A cir- cular wns issued hy the Department of Agri- culture of U.S.A. to 4000 farmers asking them to report on the value of silage. Nut oue nnid.a word against it.

A LADY ATHLETE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
: A LADY ATHLETE; A .woman need 'not necessarily1 become an athlete to fit'herself for'the duties of wifehood or motherhood. If sho will obey common- sense rules of health and be sure that the organs that constitute her womanhood are always healthy and strong, she will be a capable, and healthy wife and mother. If a woman suffers from Biliousness, Indigestion; Headache,' Female Ailments, Constipation, Dizziness, Fulness after Eating, Buzzing in the Head, etc., etc., she should at once obtain a box of Bile Beans. They are one of the safest and surest purgative medicines on the market, and, unlike most laxative remedies, they act direct on the bile ducts, causing the liver to secrete and cast increased quantities of this fluid into the bowels, thus flushing the same out as a stream of water would a drain. A Bile Bean taken now and then will keep one free from digestive troubles, their attendant evils, ; and dangerous after effects; ' They are the specific of the 19th century. Manufact...
HOW TO KEEP YOUNG-LOOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
HOW TO KEEP YOUNG-LOOKING-. The great secret (saya a lady writer) of keep- ing alwa3'8 young-looking and charming, ia to be amiable and try to always look on the cheerful bright side of life. A sweet, kindly, and serene expression lends a never-failing charin to the countenance, whilst a gloomy, sour look adds years and years to a woman's face. Disoontouted, peevish women always look years older than they really are. Wrinkles como from frowning and pouting, and the mouth has a tendenoy to protrude disagreeably ; and the woman who thus gives way to a gloomy, miserable disposition rapidly ages and grows old and ugly. Now, a woman with a cheerful, bright, kindly face, whose mouth ourves in smiles, and from whose eyes beam kindness and benevolence, will always look young and oharming. So many people se*m to think that it ÍB their duty to look on tho blackest, side of every- thing, and they go to meet their troubles half way. Everyoue must necessarily have his share of troubl« in this ve...
CHAPTER IX. FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
CHAPTER IX. FEIENDS. It ia two months since we left the farm, to record the movements of Don and Ralph; and six months had elapsed since the arrival ; of tho Campbells upon' the scene' They were fooling well at home upon the place hy this time, and appeared to be well content with the farm and the people. They were indeed a happy family. Yet there was one who, despite the affection of her people, and the esteem and good wishes of all she oame in contact with, was not happy. She went through hor daily work-a work whioh was well to her taste, and would have made her almost happy under other circumstances but there was what tbe neighbours called a settled eadness upon the young fair face, whioh they oould not understand. One of them alone, of the neighbours, understood it. She was grieving, and would not be consoled for the fear that she would not again eoe the face of the lad who was dear to her, dearer than she had over known when he was by her side. In answer to a letter written by ...
WELL ACCOUNTED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
WELL ACCOUNTED FOR. While a recruit of a few weeks' service in a Highland corps, I was one evening pass- ing the post of a sentry, when he hailed me cautiously, and asked me to mount guard in his plaoe while he ran off surreptitiously for a drink. I grieve to state that I abetted bim in committing such a serious breach of discipline-deserting his post. I took his rifle while he 'skelped it,' when suddenly the colonel appeared on a surprise visit. X challenged, and he answered oorreotly (my ohnm had given the password) when he caught sight of my white spats gleaming through the darkness. 4 Hallo !' he cried, 4 what have you been doing to your boots P' For a moment I was silent ; then, catch- ing sight of a heap of lime dose by, replied : ? Stepped by aooident in the lime, sir 1' Luckily for my absent ohum and myself, the oolonel acopted the explanation without suspicion, and passed on.
FACE POWDERS AND COSMETICS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
FACE POWDERS AND COSMETICS. While tho oulture of beauty should be followed from the earliest age it becomes more than, ever necessary asa woman advances in life, for towards middle-age defects be , come more marked, and charms will rapidly fade if cue attention is not paid to their preservation. Impaired appearance of the eyes ia often due to defects of sight, which can be remedied by the uso of glasees. Now, I am not advocating that a woman should wear glasses on social occasions, or ' when she wishes io look her best, but by using them for a few hours a day when reading or working, and free from observation, ehe can rest tho eyes, provent; the defects from be- coming worso, and distinctly improve their appearance. Where tho eyes are strong enough to beor it, bathing with a weak solution of sea-salt in cold water is a good öiimxilaut and tondh to brighten them, or abuut six drops of brandy may bb used in an oyo-bathful of water with a few grains of boraoio aoid. This is a very soot...

CURIOUS EXPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
GUílIüUS EXPRESSIONS. A village clergyman who tolls some good BtorioB writes : Tho ourious expressions, whioh ono so often hears used, are fnll of humor, and help to relieve the at times depressing oharaoter of the work. The half - educated are very fond of using big words, and this loads to aotno very odd phrases. I once asked a man how his mother got her living. He replied, 4 She goes about, Bir, attending encroachments.* In reality she was a Hecond Mrs. Gamp. The men who were members of a club whioh was under my management ofton ueod to apologiso if they had not had timo to make a chango of clothes before thoy came, 1 You'll oxouae UB, eh, being In our dinaMll*.' How they had ¡ originally heard the phrase 4 on déshabille' I | never could discover. In connection witl this use of long words, I shall al way i remember a very funny difficulty in which j was placed soon after I took Orders.

THE WAY TO WIN A LADY'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
; THE WAY TO WIN A LADY'S LOVE. A good deal has been said lately in the woman's columns of this paper as to the best way to win the affections of the gentler sex. An old experienced hand at the business snys that the. first essential is good nature and good spirits coupled with a manly physique. Bile Beans are the specific to use to attain this end. They put tho digestive organs in perfect con- dition, aid the liver, heart, lungs', action, act as a tonic to the whole system ; and for such ail- ments as piles, costiveness, indigestion, sour stomach, debility, and lack of energy and phy- sical tone they will provo an undoubted specific. Sold at 9Ad and ls l£d per box, or six large boxes for 6s, they are within the reach of all. They are manufactured in one of the best fitted and equipped laboratories in tho world, at Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A., and the fact that they are prescribed by tho first physicians in that country, provos that they aro a medicine of no ordinary merit.

OUR FUNNY LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 March 1898
OUR FUNNY LANGUAGE. Verb endings, as they're nsf d by ua, Are nothing Bhort of marvellous And full of oddity, as thus If a nap you take, that nap is took, But bread is baked and never book, And a digger's olaim is staked, not stook. A man who swims may say he's swum,' But milk is skimmed and seldom akuna, And nails you trim : they are not trum. "When words you /»peak, those words ar« spoken. But a nose is tweaked and oan't be twoken, And what you seek is never soken. If I should stiok you, you'd be stuck. Should you liok me I'd not be luck, 2$or could I by a kick be kuok. If we' forget, then vre*ve forgotten, But things wo wot aro never wotton, .And houses let cannot be totten. The goods one sells are always sold, But fears dispelled aro not dispold, Nor -what you smell is never smoled. * "When young a top you oft saw spun, But did you see a grin o'er gran, .Or a potato neatly ekun ?
