CUTTING MILITARY RED-TAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
CUTTING MILITARY RED-TAPE. &nbsp; An army officer just back from the Phil- ippines tells the following story of a callous young officer whose mistakes are a frequent source of amusement to his comrades:—Early in his military experience, the lieutenant was awakened one night by the sentry, who passed by his tent calling out the hour, and vouch- safing the information: "All's well." The youth turned over and settled down to another nap, but the next hour was awakened again by the unwelcome call. When this had been repeated the third time, he decided to endure it no longer, and, going to the door of his tent, called out: "Look here, my good man, it's very kind of you to tell me the time, but I have a watch here by my bed so please spare yourself further trouble." &nbsp;
WRITING STILL AN ART. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
WRITING STILL AN ART. It is hard for us to credit the vast amount of attention that is paid to caligraphy in the East, where men of learning devote years to its acquirement, and their best days to making ar- tistic copies of classical works. Although this art is to a certain extent dying out, owing to the cheapness of printing, a man may even yet in Persia become as famous for his writing as a poet for his verses.
MOTIVES FOR SUICIDE. SOME STRANGE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
MOTIVES FOR SUICIDE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SOME STRANGE INCIDENTS. &nbsp; Extraordinary enough are the reasons that sometimes induce people to take their lives. Most suicides are over-borne by "a sea of &nbsp; troubles," but there is a type so constituted that it cannot bear even petty discomforts. Not long ago a man killed himself because the cat ate his dinner—catching the thievish animal in the act, he observed: "You shall hear more of this," fetched his gun, and shot—himself. An equally strange case came to light recently at a Lancaster inquest, which showed that a farm bailiff named Alfred Stephen slew himself in a moment of intolerable depression, resulting from the behaviour of the cattle in not fattening properly. Stephen went to the slaughter-house and smashed his head in with a coal hammer. There is said to have been a beau in the 18th century who shot himself in the shock of the dreadful discovery that h...
THE ETERNAL BRIGAND. NAPLES PLAGUED BY A HIRELING MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
THE ETERNAL BRIGAND. NAPLES PURSUED BY A HIRELING &nbsp; MURDERER. &nbsp; Another brigand comes to the front now that Musolino (whose photograph was given in "The World's News" of December 21) has been dis- posed of, it is hoped, for good. The new worthy is named Vincenzo Sabatasso, a well-built, good-looking fellow of 30, who has already two murders to his account. His field of operation is the environs of Naples, where he was born and where he and his mastiff, his constant attendant, are the terror of the neigh- borhood. His first murder was committed some months ago by commission of a Neapolitan patrician, now abroad, who wished to get rid of a rival, and found a willing tool in Sabataaso, who did the job, and got a good round sum of blood money. His second murder dates from last October, and the victim was a poor pedlar travelling by night to a village fair with a well-filled purse. This last crime excited such indignation that the police determined to get hold o...
CUBA'S FREEDOM. BRIGANDAGE, KIDNAPPING, AND MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
CUBA'S FREEDOM. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; BRIGANDAGE, KIDNAPPING, AND &nbsp; MURDER. &nbsp; Brigandage is spreading is Cuba to an alarm- ing extent, and robberies and murders have be- come increasingly frequent. This condition of things is traceable to con- fusion in the methods of the government, which is half American and half Cuban, and to the inefficiency of the police to check lawlessness, where it is not the actual accomplice of the law breakers. This force is composed of ex-revolu- tionaries whose respect for moral order is nil, and who, when desirous of a little excitement, indulge in kidnappings or at least connive at them. The Press is aghast at their doings. "El Diario" declares that the authorities share the plunder. Cuban trade with the United States has de- creased 7 per cent. this year, while that with Germany has increased 26 per cent., and South America has increased hers by 22 per cent. &nbsp; The irony of t...

ALL THAT REMAINED. Ambitious Girl: "I am not satisfied to be dependent on my father for every penny I need. I wish to be independent." &nbsp; Mother: "Should you start earning your own &nbsp; living you would have to be the obedient servant &nbsp; of any employer you might have, always at his &nbsp; beck and call, always ready to do the bidding of &nbsp; your superiors, and having not an hour you could &nbsp; call your own." &nbsp; "That would be horrid. I want to be inde- &nbsp; pendent of father, but I'll call no man master, and I shall want my own way in everything." "Then the only thing is to get married." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Printed and Published by WATKIN WYNNE, of Bon Accord-avenue, Waverley, at the Office of THE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WORLD'S NEWS, 147 King-street, Sydney, in the State of New South Wales.
HOW TO MAKE A GENIUS. ON A NEW PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
HOW TO MAKE A GENIUS. ON A NEW PLAN. Is it possible to build up the human race by the same process of selection that a farmer raises a superior breed of sheep or a herd of cattle? Francis Galton, an English scientist, who has just been awarded the Huxley medal by the An- thropological Society of London, maintains that this can be done. Incidentally he has devised an ingenious scheme for spending other people's money. Mr. Galton proposes that rich men contribute to endowment funds for young couples who are above the average pair physically and mentally. By this process, Mr. Galton argues, the human race would tend toward genius rather than me- diocrity. "It might easily become an avowed object of noble families," says Mr. Galton, "to gather fine specimens of humanity round them, just as it was to produce fine breeds of cattle and so forth, which were costly in money, but repaid in satis- faction. Again, a settlement of selected persons might conceivably be maintained bearing some ana...
Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 4 January 1902
Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. This week's mail did not bring anything very startling in the book line. Amongst the most interesting volumes which are available in Australia this week, and which the writer saw at Dymock's, were Dean Hole's "Then and Now"; "An Editor's Sermons," by Sir Edward Russell, of the Liverpool "Daily Post"; Linesman's "Words by an Eye-witness," dealing with the South African war; "Stories in the Dark," by Barry Pain; "The Happenings of Jill," by Iota; "St. Nazarius," by A. C. Far- quharson; "The Outcast Emperor," by Lady Helen Cravem. Thdn there comes another war book, of which every reasonable person ought to be heartily sick, "Behind the Scenes in the Transvaal," by D. M. Wilson; L. T. Meade's latest, "The New Mrs. Lascelles"; "The Great Lowlands," by Annie Holdsworth, perhaps best remembered by her "Years that theLocusts Hath Eaten." Another book which should prove of interest is "The Romance of King Ludwig II. and His Fairy Palaces"; "John Chinaman...

THE SECRET OF SHOPPING WELL. "There is nothing," says a dresematker, "in which women vary more than in the ajbility to shop well. That woman is at once always the best dressed and the most satisfied with her pur chases who, when she sets out, knows exactly what she wants, and will be put off with nothing else. This ie a quality that can be cultivated, and it pays well."

TRACKED TO DEATH. A SPANIARD'S REMORSELESS VENGEANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
TRACKED TO DEATH. \ ... • &lt; A SPANIARD'S REMORSELESS VENGEANCE. A terrible drama of vengeance culminated in murder at Marseilles (France), on Sunday night, December 1, wheti a man known as Dubreuil was found mortally stabbed on some waste ground. He would give no information, but, sending for kis wife, he just said: "I die assassinated; Avenge me," and expired. Under cross-examination this woman, whose real name is Fabry, told a startling story. Abandoned by a Spaniard with whom she had lived for two years, she took up with M. de la Vergne, a friend of his, and had soarcely done so when the Spaniard re-appeared, breathing murderous hate. The pair changed their address several times, but the Spaniard tracked them down each time, and at last forced De la Vergne to a duel with swords, wounding him severely in the chest. With his hate still unsatisfied, he sent his wounded victim a note stating that he would hunt him to death. About three weeks before the date mentioned, De l...
OLD MAN'S ROMANCE. HOW HE WAS FLEECED BY A HUNTING WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
OLD MAN'S ROMANCE. - — - i HOW HE WAS FLEECED BY A | HUNTING WOMAN. &lt; &lt; At the York (Eng.) Assizes recently a curious story was related to Mr. Justice Grantham. An old farmer of 73, named Charles Lambert, alleged that he had been induced to pay away large sums of money to a young married woman, whose admirer he wae. Both this woman and her husband, named re spectively Howard and Ella Rose Llewellyn, were charged with obtaining £222 10s from the sep tuagenarian farmer by false pretences. Howard Llewellyn was sole partner in the firm of Llewellyn and Co., saddlery merchants, of W&lsafl, and Mrs. Llewellyn was a well-known and dashing hunting woman in the East Riding. Lambert, who lived at Sunk Island, Hull, it seems, had been on terms of friendship with the female and her mother, and, for some years, had been desperately in love with the former. Before Mrs. Llewellyn was married Lambert ( was a frequent visitor at EUoughton Hall, her &lt; mother's...

EXPLORATION OF THE AIR WITH KITES. \ ) >: . , . . &lt; ; Mr. A. Lawrence Rotcb has for some years past c / devoted his attention to the use of kites to ob- ( ) tain meteorological observations at the Elut-hill ( ) Observatory, Mass., U.S.A., and he has success- \ ( fully carried on the work of exploring the air p ( there to a height of three miles by several hun- ; ( dred kite flights, executed in varied weather con- / \ ditions, whenever the velocity of the wind ex- ) ( ceeded 12 miles an hour. Certain types of wea- ) ( ther, however, such as anti-cycloncs, accompanied ) ( by light winds, can rarely be.studied. Mr. Rotch ) t now proposes the employment of kites carrying ) f meteorographs on steamships, especially on ves- p r sels cruising in tropicai oceans. He has himself S } demonstrated the practicability of this scheme, \ ) as on August 22 last he raised a kite to an ( ) elevation of half a mile from a tow-boat 'n ( ) Massachusetts Bay, when the velocity of the c ; w...
KISSING THE BABY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
j KISSING THE BABY. \ .... .»i ? That kissing is an instinct wfe do not believe, ( but it has become so engrained as a habit that ( ( some people fly to it on the slightest tempta- , S ticn, and actually seem to enjoy it. It would &lt; S then be idle to attempt, in this generation at &lt; ) least, to put a stop to such a proceeding, and &lt; ) so far aa it affects people who have arrived at ( ) ycais of discretion, and have a say in the mat- ( ) ter, it may go on for aught we caret. The kissing ' ? of helpless children, however, is another matter. ( There can be but little doubt that by this stupid ( ( custom infection is often conveyed even from ( ( mother to chHd, and frequently from nursemaid &lt; ( to infant. But the evil extends much further, ( ( for the training which these much-beslavered ( ( infants receive during the first years of their , ( lives sticks to them, and when they go to school . f leads to endless troubles. , } These wretched lit...
THE THREE BALLS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
| the three: balls. The three braes balls outside the pawnbroker'* ehop have often given rise to conjectures as to their history. There are two theories. The first is, that they are the three gilded pills forming portion of the arms of the Medici family, and were carried westward when the. Lombard® be came the money-lenders of Europe. The second is, that they are the three bags of gold tradi tionally said to have been carried by St. Nicholas, as treasurer to the early Church. Perhaps the truth is a union of the two idea©, and the Lom bards adopted the sign of St. Nicholas as a por tion of their insignia.
