THE EMPTY HEARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
THE EMPTY HEARTH. As I sit beside the empty hearth, there's - silence all around, But I .hear the rooking measure. of a oradle r.i; .on the ground ; My little baby sleeping draws her breath ¿y. with, gentle sigh, . And my son, of play now weary, nestles close with drooping eye. .'His hand is warm within my hand, his. head upon my breast Is sweet with the scent of childhood, bf the ï>-. young bird in the nest ; His faoe is hidden from me, but his eyes are "..i, strange and bright, And, he whose eyes are likw them walka towards me thro* the night. I shall hear his footstep-oh ! his footstep ! !.. -on tho stair. The door will open, he wiJl come and stand r behind my chair. . . s,-God! save me from these dreams! The x ; hearth is empty, far is he : And his little children lie asleep on another woman's knee. -LAUBENOH ALMA TAMSMA.

CHAPTER XI. WHERE IS FLORRIE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
CHAPfER XI. "WHEEE IS FLOEHTE. The Ban had not risen, but the gray of dawn was stealing over the hills when Charley Ward, who had oalled at neighbour Wright's, was making his way to Nolan's farm, accompanied by Mr. Wright. They «valked round the house, then into it, and saw tho record of the fatal night's work. Evory window and door was riddled with bullets, ana a trail of blood extended from one bedroom to tho dining-room, and there they found pour young Bodnoy sleeping the peaceful sleep of death. They saw whore he was shot, and where he had received his final wound, and they laid him on one of the beds and covered bis face. * The only wonder to me is that they did not set fire to theplaoe af ter plundering it,' Mr. Wright remarked. ' Neither plunder nor destruction of property was their motive,' said Charley quietly. «What then ?' « This night's bad work has been done oat of spite for supposed insults, never given by the Campbells-that is tho worst of ir.

BILLIARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
BILLIARDS. The ordinary amateur is quite content witl the game as it is, and so far all is satis factory. Bat when we come to look at tb game as it is played by the best professionals ' our satisfaction is considerably lessened The great improvement in the manufacture of tables, and of the implements used in thi game, conjoined perhaps with more aseiduoui labour than the older players devoted to it have enabled the modern exponents to attaii a degree of perfection that waa never dreaur of thirty years ago. The result has beer unfortunate. One of the great charms oi English billiards, as ordinarily played, is itt variety. The different kinds of strokes, the combinations constantly assuming new forms, interest the player and spectator alike. But at one time it seemed probable that the game would loee thiB characteristic, ana in fact for a time it did. Tho quickest and Burest way to suocess was found to bo by cultivating a particular stroko, and hy entirely subordi- nating to it every ...
TRAVELLER. BRITISH COLUMBIA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
BRITISH COLUMBIA. Brltteb Columbia is a province of the Dominion bf Canada lying between the Hooky Mountains and the North Pacifie Ocean. Population 130,000. Minerals con- sist of coal chiefly and ¿rold. Vancouvor Island contains large deposits of goud ateam coal, over 1,000,000 tons p«r annum being raised ; and there aro other largo deposits in the inland parts of tho colony. Duriug '95 and '96 gold was found in tb» Kooteuay and otbor districts near Ibo Columbia river in great abundance, and a ru«h thither at once set it. The town of Roseland became the centre of the district. In '96 336 oompunies wera formed for mining purposes, with a capital of £69,000,000 dollars, an immense sum which suggested that some of the schemes were hardly sound. An important industry is carried on in tinned salmon. A scheme was set on foot in '92 for tho emigration of Scotch crofters to develop tho fishing industry on Vancouver Island. There are also valuable timber and fruit-growing industries establi...

WHISKERS. "I don't loreyou any nj ore ; seems to me morning, noon, and night, the only thing I hear is jaw, jaw, jaw. Why will you persist in makiug life miserable? Have I not had my own troubles, which were cured by Bile Beans ? Now, why, oil ! why, will you not take a course of them and get cured." This is the w»y that all sensible wives should talk to their husbands, who are continually finding fault. It is their livers that are at fault in every case nearly. Put their digestive apparatus in perfect working order, and ten to one you will have the most amiable of husbands. Bile Beans are an un- doubted speciBc for all stomach, liver, and bowel troubles. They also cure headache, con- stipation, dizziness, fulness after eating, piles, had blood, face pimples, sallow complexions, and hot sweaty hands. Used ia cases of de- bility, fever and ague, and all ailments per- taining to weakness from overwork, worry, or excitement, they will prove a certain remedy. Manufactured at Detroit, Mi...
N[?]EVUS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
NOVTJS. Very few weeks pass by without some correspondent asking for the proper treat- ment for a nee vue. It-seems a large pro- portion of infants are born with one or moro of these little disfiguring marks, whioh are little bunohes of enlarged veins close nuder the skin. They are rosy red. pink, or purple patches slightly raised above the general Burface of the white skin around them. Ncevi vary in size from a pin's point to a large paten like the palm of a hand. They are always congenital, that is, they are birth marks, and cannot attack a person after birth like other skin diseases may do. If a noevns is once cured, alO'.>, it never returns. There are, however, some deeply pl»oed burche» of enlarged arteries, whioh, hardly noticeable at birth, may subsequently take an aotivo growth and become spongy, compressible, pulsating, tumours.

A MOTHER'S WISH. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
A MOTHER'S WISH. A-mother's proudest'arid happiest wish is to help ah ambitious son in his early struggles to attain etninpnco in" his chosen walk of life. To stich a son n robust motlier with a healthy mind in a healthy body is the best counsellor, and the best spur. Many mothers aro sickly, fretful, helpless creatures, tortured beyond en- durance hy the pains of their own wrecked constitutions. An ambitious youth receives little encouragement or sound advice from such a mother. Most ill-health among women is due to weakness and disease of the organs distinctly feminine. ' If these parts are weak and diseased, tlie entire system suffers. It is quite easy to keep all tho organs of tho body in a healthy, vigorous "state with a little caro and attention. Many remedies act in such a violent mannor that their use is more harmfu\.than beneficial.

THOUGHT PHOTOGRAPHY. I. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
THOUGHT PHO £0 GRAPH Y. At last we oan be sure of ourselves and of other people. We have long been puzzled to discover whether oertain serious-looking people of our acquaintance really harboured great thoughts behind their massive and puckered brows. (Please note that the great thoughts aro not spelt with capitals, and have no sort of relation to Mr. Clement I Scott.) Henoeforth all ÍB easy, for with a judicious mixture of X-rays, hypnotism, a hard-thinking mao, and a highly sensitised film, you can now photograph a thought. Such at least ÍB the reoipe wbiuh Mr. Edison junior gives for this marvellous process. After drawing a good many blanks, which he knew not whether to asoribe to the fault ot his appliances or to the absence of material to be photographed, he did really suooeed in fixing down a fleeting thought. And whoa the plate was developed there appeared on it an-almighty dollar. Idée fixe will oeaae to be a mere psyohologioal expression, and will henoeforth be a tangible an...
THE MIRROR. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
THE MIRROR. You are better«looking than yon imagine. This ia ao beoaueo a looking glass does not portray our likeness with any attempt at accuracy. The ' hair is wrong in tone, the eyes arr. not oorreot in oolour, and our oom piexions are hopelessly libelled by this specious household deceiver. It is certain that if tho loouing-glassei speke tho truth the Bale of various complexion washes would doorcase to half, for any fair skin looks grey and pallid in the glass, and numbers of women who have.splendid complexions ruin them by trying to improve them because they look bad in the mirror. You may be certain that, however plain your face (.corns, it is by no means so plaiu as it appears in the tell-tale mirror. Seoondly, you oan not assume your natural expression while poor iug in the looking-glass. Tho eye must be in a oertain position boforo you oan soe at all, and the eye, so far as expression is eon» corned, governs the faoe. The consequence is that you can noe only ouo of your exp...
MODERN BULLET WOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
MODERN BULLET WOUNDS. I Some curious idiosyncrasies of modern bullets aro disclosed by Dr. Henry Davis, who attended to tho Gfreek wounded in the recent campaign. He mentions that the velooity of the Lee Metford is so groat that it is said to do moro damage at a distance than at close quarters. This was proved experimentally. Three shots were fired at an old donkey who was oaring hay in a paddock. The bullets passed 'clean through* bim, but be wont on eating an though nothing unusual had happened, atjd it was not till the symptoms of rapidly advancing peritonitis endued that he desisted from his meal. Tho 'Dum-dutu,' whioh is the latest modification of the Lee-Motrord stands no such nonsenee and is far more oraelly fatal. This is owing to the fact that it collapses on impaot ' like a concertina.* The expansive prinoiple has been oarried to its greatest extent, we are told, in this ' Webley's patent man-stopping bullet.' This famouB Bir- mingham firm was over to the fore pro- gressiv...
HOW SNAKES ARE CAUGHT IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
HOW SNAKES ARE CAUGHT IN INDIA. Menageries are always in need of snakes, and as India abounds in these reptiles, per- haps to a greater extent than any other country in the world, *o India go themanagers when their stooks'begin to run low. Snake hunting in India, unless one understands the trado, is a perilous business, for a larger percentage of the Indian serpents are poisonous than in any other part of the globe, and even a Hindoo has no desire to die of a snake bite, nor within the crushing rfold i of a constrictor. Besides, however, the demands from the menageries, the Indian ¿Government paya a bounty on snakes heads, 'äofhat there is a double incentive to Indian snake hunters, and when, there are sufficient orders on hsnd from the menageries, a hunt is orgauised on a grand soale. Preparations are made by ascertaining from the natives a promi&ing snake district, which is usually a tract of jungle with thiok bamboo or grass undergrowth. On suoh land Snakes are found by t...

HOUSEKEEPER. HINTS TO HOUSEWIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
HINTS TO HOUSEWIVES. &nbsp; Never boil anything that can be cooked by steaming. To remove all the grease from the top of soup after having skimmed it with a skimmer lay a piece of porous brown paper on top. &nbsp; It will absorb every particle of grease. Feather dusters are only for ornament. Never use them. Use soft, old cloths for dusters, and begin at the top of the piece. of furniture and dust down. If the furniture will permit, use a cloth slightly damp. A &nbsp; cloth with a little kerosene oil on it is good for all Wood furniture.

GRATED CHEESE SANDWICHES. Grated cheese sandwiches always prove acceptable at any kind of picnic, and especi- ally among gentlemen. Select a rather hard old cheese, and grate it finely. Take plain water biscuits, and spread one with a thick &nbsp; layer of butter, scatter the grated cheese thickly over, and put a buttered biscuit on the top. A seasoning of cayenne pepper may be liked by some.

Line a shallow dish with pastry, pour in this mixture, cover with a layer of thin pastry, and bake for half an hour. Cut this into square pieces of convenient size, and back into a tin.
SEASONABLE DISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 19 March 1898
SEASONABLE DISHES, Here is a savoury way of preparing pigeons for the table. Melt some butter in a stew pan, put in the pigeon or pigeons, nicely trussed, and braize them, turning them frequently till they are browned all over, then pour off the butter, add a little good gravy and slowly simmer the birds for twenty minutes. When done, serve them with salad and a sauce made as follows : Dissolve a quarter of a pot of red currant jelly in a clear saucepan, add it to the strained juice of a small orange, a pinch of allspice, one bay leaf, two shalots, and a clove. Simmer these gently for ten minutes, then pour in a wineglassful of port, strain, &nbsp; and return the sauce to tho saucepan. Make it hot before sending in to table. Slices of cold beef or mutton make a most appetising dish prepared in this way.
