TO AVOID SMALL-POX. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
TO AVOID SMALL-POX. Few people realise the importance of fresh air as a preventive against disease. It is a well known fact that the air, or rather breath, which comes out of our mouths is as deadly as any poi son you can buy at a druggist's shop, and yet there are a number of people who sit in the same atmosphere for hours together, and who sleep at night with the windows and doors tightly barred because they are afraid that if a breath of fresh air enters the room they will take cold. Fresh, pure air never yet gave anybody cold, although a sudden chill taken while the system is in a lowered condition through breathing impure air might. It is dangerous to eit in a room with the bottom part of the window open, as it often causes a draught to blow directly upon you; but you do not feel the air when it comes from a window open a little at the top. - And not only is it necessary to have the window open, but an open fireplace as well, not only in every sitting-room, but in every bedroom...
PEARL FISHERIES OF VENEZUELA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
> PEARL FISHERIES OF VENEZUELA. The pearl fisheries of the island of Margarita, on the coast of Venezuela, have become quite important within recent years, and are now extensively worked. The pearls of Margarita Island have been known ever since the dis covery of the country. The Indians of the time of Columbus were already provided with ornamental objects in which pearls figured prominently, and it seems to have been these pearls which occasioned the first difficulties between the Spaniards and the inhabitants. During the last few years the oyster beds of the inland have been more $nd more actively worked. At present there are about 400 sail boats with native equipments working about the islands of Margarita, Cocho and Cubagna. The principal oyster beds are those of El Tirano, to the north-east, and Macanao, to the north-west of Margarita. It is estimated that at present as many as 2000 men are occupied in the oyster fisheries. Metallic drags are used, which are drawn over the o...

ODD THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
ODD THOUGHTS. It seems to me when taps give out, That they who live in close accord With members of the Water Board Are unaffected by the drought. It's the petty annoyances of life that bring a Nation's grey hairs with sorrow to the whisky bottle. • Surprising how soon one gets "full up" of the man with nothing in him. It is wonderful how folks who don't want to be convinced refuse to listen to any other argu ments than those which set forth their own views. Be virtuous and the parsons would starve. Be all things to all men, and your business will boom. You can't force a man's confidence, but he goes into a Trust without any compulsion. The only man who ever fully understands a woman is the man who understands that he doesn't understand her, and has sufficient un derstanding to let it go at that.
ARGENTINA AND CHILI. WAR QUITE POSSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
ARGENTINA AND CHILI. v ■ — - ' WAR QUITE POSSIBLE. &lt; / ( ) In view of the cables this week about the strain- / ) ed relations between the Argentine Republic and / ^ Cbili, the statement by a high official in London ( ( recently will be read with double interest.

A Beggarly Billet. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
A Beggarly Billet. O, Eritain's best Society is agitated now The upper ten has elongated jaw; In fact, the Aristocracy is feeling anyhow, And England's filled with sympathetic awe There's not a Marquis offers. -And the Duke with empty coffers Sees his last resource completely disappear. For who can fill the billet, As a Governor should fill it, At a beggarly five thousand pounds a year? The Foreign Office feeling ie akin to one of pain, The Government it naturally irks, The agony engendered in the soul of Chamber lain Is really not surprising in the circs.; For the person of distinction, Whom he guaranteed to drink ehun, With ability enough to boss us here, For his extra thousand "quidder," He was actually bid a Wretched, beggarly five thousand pounds a year! JIMMY.
TOBACCO WITHOUT NICOTINE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
TOBACCO WITHOUT NICOTINE. If it were possible to extract the nicotiF.ne, or alkaloid, from tobacco, and impregnaite the weed with some essence that would nat only make it as fragrant, but also as soothing, as most smokers declare tobacco to be, wotild not the inventor of such a new tobacco be doing a service to humanity? Even the most ardent anti-smoker would probably be induced to try tobacco if 3t were made to convey into the system some essence with health-giving properties, instead of nico tine, and this idea has induced several in vestigators to try experiments. During the process of preparation or manufacture, the leaf or the shred tobacco is subjected to chemi cal treatment for the purpose of extracting the noxious element, and afterwards impregnating it with essential oils of a health-giving character. Those who have smoked samples of the new tobacco declare it to be more palatable than the old. The process is not yet completed, and when placed on the market it will doubtles...
GIRLS' SUICIDE CRAZE. THREE DROWNED IN A CANAL IN SUCCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
GIRLS' SUICIDE CRAZE. THREE DROWNED IN A CANAL IN SUCCESSION. The city of Lancaster (England) is at pre sent experiencing almost an "epidemic" of girl suicides—three having formed subjects of in auiry within a very short period, the element of romance being present more or less in each case. The first case was that of a bright, jolly girl o£ eighteen years, by name Eliza Jackson. She received a letter from the postman, and after wards wrote a letter to her relatives wishing them good-bye, and stating the spot in the canal where they would find her body. The body was found at the spot indicated, but the letter which seems to have caused the mis chief was never seen. The second case was that of a fifteen-year-old girl, named Evelyn Thursby. She went out for a walk with a girl companion in the evening, and on nearing the canal suddenly refused to go fur ther. Ultimately she walked straight to the towing path and plunged into the water, resisting every attempt to save her. Her companion...
The Air Ship. SANTOS-DUMONT'S FUTURE PLANS. PROBABLE TRIALS NEAR LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
The Air Ship. SANTOS-DUMONT'S FUTURE PLANS. | —♦ ( PROBABLE TRIALS NEAR LONDON. ; ) M. Santos-Dumont, the air-ship hero, has been S on a short visit to London, and whilst there ; submitted to the inevitable interview. ; "Are you making any arrangements for trials ) near London?" be was asked. f "Not yet," replied M. Santos-Dumont, "it is ( too early. I shall make many trips before I \ revisit England, and, in all probability, shall ( have learnt much by that time. I expect that ( the Aero Club will by thon have its own head- ^ quarters in some place well suited for my ex- , periments, end in that case I shall make ray ) trips from their grounds. They are, of course, ( likely to be near London, for the convenience ( of the members of the club." ( "So that next June we my see an air-^hip } circling round the dome of St. Paul's? Have ( your experiments in winning the Deutsch prize ) led you to make many modifications in your ) flying machine?" ) "Oh, yes. I have proved the correctness ...
LUXURIOUS PLAYING CARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
LUXURIOUS PLAYING CARDS. Playing-cards painted by hand are becoming popular. and a lady in Paris now has a studio of design, where one -department is entirely de voted to producing the$e pretty trifles. Only ledies are employed, and some of the designs are really Exquisite. A good deal of 'aork is expended on the box. and one. made to the order of an Austrian Princess, who is an inveterate card-player, is dainty and luxurious. The "cards" are made of thinnest "ivorine," and on each is painted a tiny crown and monogram, as well as a motto. The backs have all a simple monogram. One canont help thinking the mottoes would prove rather distracting to, say, a keen whist player, but there is no doubt about the prettiness. The case is of white kid. on which is a tiny crown, and the Christian name of the possessor in turquoises and pearls. It is locked with a small gold key. In another pack all the honor cards were beautifully painted with original designs, and the heads of the Kings. Queens...
NO MORE FIRES AT SEA STRIKING EXPERIMENTS WITH PREVENTIVE GAS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
KO MORE FIRES AT SEA STRIKING EXPERIMENTS WITH PREVENTIVE OAS. A gas that will put out fire has been experi mented with" in England recently with some very striking results. The name of this useful anti fire agent is sulphur-dioxide gas. A lighted torch was thrust into a chamber containing some of this gas, and it was instant ly extinguished. A long lighted torch was slowly inserted in tho chamber, and as it entered the fire was extinguished at the same rate of progression. A broad red-hot bar of iron was inserted in the chamber, and a torch composed of straw dipped in naphtha was then placed upon the iron, but neither the naphtha nor the straw ignited. A broad red-hot bar of iron was inserted in the chamber and thrust into a bucket of naptha. the result being similar to that of plac ing a red-hot iron in a bucket of water. The chamber, which at the commencement of the experiments had contained about 6 per cent, of sulphur-dioxide gas, was now opened, and after the gas had been disp...

Peace in China. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
i Peace in China. > CHINA FOR THE CHINESE AGAIN: THE FORMAL HANDING OVER OF THE SUMMER i PALACE, PEKIN, AFTER THE SIGNING OF THE PEACE PROTOCOL. Hie Peace Protocol, which, after many delays, was signed in Pekin in September, made pro vision for the evacuation of the public places by the troops of the Powers within a fortnight. In consequence of this agreement, the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace were formally banded over to Hu, the Controller of the Imperial Household, within the specified time. An other effect of the signing of the Protocol is shown in one of our illustrations to-day. The mandarins promptly began to emerge from their hiding-places and return to their much bat tered capital.
BISKS CHEMISTS RUN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
BISKS CHEMISTS RUN. ■—♦_ A Parisian chemist was recently accused of having delivered a bottle of carbolic acid when carbolic lotion was ordered. Fortunately for himself, he was able to prove that the servant who came to his pharmacy asked for the former. A baby died through the use of the acid. Unfortunate for the baby! But it might have b$en far worse for the chemist had he failed, as he might well have done..in proving the exact request made over the counter.
ROMANCE OF CRIME. ACCUSED OF MURDER AFTER TEN YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
ROMANCE OF CRIME. ACCUSED OF MURDER AFTER TEN YEARS. At Verona (Rome), a month ago, there was being unravelled a libel action which turns upon an atrocious murder committed ten years ago, when some hoys, fishing in the river, brought up several bass of human remains, which had boen the body of a young woman who could never be identified, as the head could not be dis covered. Simultaneously with this discovery, a young woman of the district, named Isoiina, was re ported missing, and she has never since been seen. Examination of the body showed that the murdered woman had been enceinte, and Iso lina was known to have been in that condi tion. Popular suspicion at once pointed to a young lieutenant in an Alpine regiment, named Trivul zio. known to have been Isolina's lover. Al though he was released after a short detention, the public cpinion refused to be satisfied. After smouldering for ten years, the tragedy has broken out afresh by a direct accusation against the ex-lieutenant, made...
Notable Places. CHURCH AT WISEMAN'S FERRY. A BUILDING WITH A ROMANTIC HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
Notable Places. CHURCH AT WISEMAN'S FERRY. &nbsp; &nbsp; A BUILDING WITH A ROMANTIC &nbsp; HISTORY. &nbsp; To forget the prominent landmarks of early Australian days would be unworthy of a people just now bursting into a new nationhood. Yet the old church of St. Mary Magdalene, illustrated on this page, which years ago stood, like a never-sleeping senti- nel, at Wiseman's Ferry, has largely passed out of the re- collection of the pre- sent generation. It is a pity that it should be so, for it was immeasurably a far more striking structure than the church that replaced it, and which stands to-day curiously cha- racteristic of the less picturesque and more modern style of ec- clesiastical architec- ture. The church of St. Mary Magdalene was not nearly so old as visitors who saw it twenty years ago roofless, its floor bro- ken, and its walls shamefully disfigured by thousands of vul- gar autographs and unseemly caricatures —might have im- agined. It was ...
A Royal Quarrel. QUEEN OF HOLLAND AND PRINCE HENRY. TWO DUELS FOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 11 January 1902
A Royal Quarrel. QUEEN OF HOLLAND AND PRINCE HENRY. TWO DUELS FOUGHT. About a month ago news came by cable that the Queen of Holland and the Prince Consort did not get on well together, and that a serious rupture had openly taken place. The last mail brought fuller particulars of the Royal quarrel. The various accounts show that prior to Queen Wilhelmina's illness a slightly heated discus- sion took place between her Majesty and the Prince at a dinner at the Chateau of Loo. The Queen, annoyed at some inattention on the part of her husband, used a somewhat harsh word, and the Prince, losing his temper, insulted the Queen. Lieutenant Van Tets, her Majesty's aide-de- camp, is stated to have then intervened, and to have reproached the Prince with the impropriety of his conduct. A challenge ensued, and a duel with swords took place immediately after din- ner. Lieutenant Van Tets was wounded, and has since been dangerously ill, peritonitis hav- ing supervened. Shortly afterwards Prince He...
