SKETCHER. THE EDSION OF SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898

THE EDISON OF SURGERY. The controversy that has arisen between the managers of the Western Infirmary, Glasgow, and Professor Macewan is one   which, in the best interests of the infirmary, should be settled. "We have no wish to say   a word that would prolong it, but we may fittingly recall public attention to the Pro- fessor's distinguished skiil and eminence as a surgeon. Many people talk of it, but only the few who have closely followed his career understand the importance of his con- tributions to the healing arts, and the strength of those claims to admiration and honour which have made his name and chair famous throughout the four quarters of the globe, and his presence at scientific gather- ings as far off as Moscow or Valparaiso tho signal for eathusiastic ovation. Luckily, Macewan's discoveries and successes have been so direct and so sensational that they require but to be known to take hold of the public mind ; and to state a few of them in langu...

CATERPILLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898

CATERPILLARS. Much has lately been written about pro- tective resemblance among birds, and I think a few words on the methods of escap- ing observation employed by Caterpillars may not be without interest. The number of species of Caterpillars in existence, alone is very large, so we must be content to notice only a few of the more striking in- stances of assimilative colouring to that of their surroundings. Firstly, then, let us turn our attention to one of the principal families of British moths, the Springidie, or Hawk Moths. One of the commonest moths of this family is the Poplar Hawk Moth (S. populi), the Cater- pillar of which is green in colour, with the curved horn-like projection, just above the tail, posseesed by all this family. This Caterpillar feeds on all the numerous varieties of the poplar tree, as well as on the various kinds of willow. It is a curious fact that those two trees, so different in appearance, seem to serve equally as food for several kinds of Caterpill...

NATURALIST. DEVOTED RATS AND MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898

NATURALIST. DEVOTED RATS AND MICE. In making a raid upon the vagrants who infest the district between the Austerlitz and Alma Bridges at Paris, the police netted a very curious specimen of humanity named Emile Schwartz. Although only forty-one years of age he looks at least sixty. Me is a white rat and mouse tamer, and when taken into custody he was carrying his puplis' larder with him. This emitted a fearful odour, its contents consisting of rotten cheese parings, musty flour, and decayed fruit. When Schwartz was searched the police found his pockets stuffed with rats and mice, but strange to say, these animals, when turned out, instead of running away, grouped themselves round their master. Moreover, when Schwartz was taken before the magistrate, the rats and mice followed him, and during the whole of his examination remained behind the door waiting for the vagabond's return. Touched by this attach- ment, the police did not separate Sohwartz and his animals, but took them together...

THE MONEY WAS WORTH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 January 1898

THE MONEY WAS WORTH IT. An Englishman of sporting propensities, with more money than brains, was prevailed upon to take a moor in the West of Ireland. In three weeks, by dint of much walking, many cartridges, and considerable patience, he managed to bring down five brace ; then, feeling utterly disgusted, he determined to return, without further ado, to his native soil. But before departing he sent for the steward of the estate to give him a bit of his mind. " Do you know sir," thundered the irate Saxon to the trembling Celt, " that each of those birds has Cost me £20 ?" " Then, sure," replied the steward, pluck- ing up courage, "how wonderfully luoky you've been that there weren't more of them !"

AT THE FALL OF THE LEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 January 1898

ÀT THE ¡FALib OF THE LEAF. WHY do the leaves fall ? " Bless me, I don't know," you answer: "I suppose it is one of nature's arrangements." Precisely ; but why did natureso arrange? Why not have Bummer time always, with perpetual foliage? What is the meaning of denuded branches, withered flowers, daylight fading in mid-afternoon, and winter's cold and desolation ? When j'ou find out why the lea ves fall you will have discovered one of nature's deepest secreta why men die. Suppose wo try an easier problem. Why should Mr. William Steel have written such a sentence as this ?-" Atthe fall of the leaf every year I got into such a «tate that I took no pleasure in anything." No doubt there are minds so highly strung as to feel keenly the influence of outward conditions, obanges of the weather and of tho seasons, and so on. But they are rare, and for practical purposes they ought to be rare. Our friend Mr. Steel, happily for him, was not one of them. All the same he was a miserable man every...

THE LANDLORD'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 January 1898

THE LANDLORD'S REVENGE. A policeman in a country village, where " cases" were rare, one day came across his landlord in an incapable state. The chance was too good to be missed, and so the land- lord was summoned and fined 14s 6d. The fine was paid, but the policeman's feelings can be better imagined than described when his rent immediately afterwards was raised 6d a week, and so continued for twenty-nine weeks, when tlie landlord coolly informed him that he had paid the fine and could have the house at the former rent.

DON'T COMPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 January 1898

DON'T COMPLAIN. What is the use ? Nobody thanks you for burdening them with your load of troubles, large or small-and they are pretty sure to seem small in other people's eyes however large in your own. «4 Go, bury your sorrow, the world has its share," and does not take any more. It is easy to fall into the habit of grumbling about every little thing that does not suit, but who. on "calm reflection, thinks it really pays? We doubt if anyone ever did. It has an ill effect on one's own spirits, sending them down delow zero on the smallest provocation. It makes those around us constantly uncomfortable. And, most of all, it is a sin against God, a most ungrateful return for all His abundant mercie?-.

My appetite, too, was very uncertain ; sometimes I couldn't look at a meal, and the sight of food made me feel quite ill. What I did eat did me no good, and consequently I ...

SPIRIT WARNINGS OF DISASTER. It seems bad enough to Bee someone else's ghost ; but to have to sit still and watch - your own spook float airily about before you, is quite too unoanny for anything. Luckily, .. to judge from some of the cases on record, your spirit double only visits you on matters of extremely urgent business ; and when he does look in, it is well to treat him nicely, and take particular notice of any hints he may drop, for you very likely may depend upon them. To show how necensary this is, a case may ba quoted, which the writer ha« satisfied himself is perfectly bona fido. A friend of his, a young surgeon, captain in the Indian Medical Bervice, waa putting in a few days jungle shooting at the foot of the Himalayas. One night he waa sleeping alone in the hut-his companion having been recalled unexpectedly-when he snddenly awoke with a dread feeling that something serious was about to happen. Turning over very slowly, for fear of hastening any attack, he looked up, a...

HOW LOND ON STREETS ARE NAMED [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 8 January 1898

HOW LOND ON STREETS ARE NAMED Did it ever occur to you how the streets of London are named, and by whom? Per- I haps you thought they were christened by I the contractors, or poesibly the foreman of I the works. As a matter of fact, the sole responsibility of affixing suitable names to the London streets iests with a special department of the London County Council, constituted for this very purpose. When a street of houses is run np, the question naturally arisep, ' What shall, we call it ?' Then the London County Council christening party wag their heads wisely and open big ledgerB, which, show all the streets of London divided into districts. It would be of course absurd to have two roads of the same name in the samo district ; and then again, there is a loug hst of names like King Street, High Street, Queen Street, etc., which will not bear addition. Having acquainted themselves with the names of all the streets in the neighbour- hood, a list of suggested names is drawn up and di...
