Scene at a Circus. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
Scene at a Circus. One of the most exaiting spectacles ever seen in Chicago was witnessed there on 25th September at a circus in the middle of the Plaisance Fair Grounds. Just after the performing animals, noluding two bears, three leopards, and a I lion, were taken into the arena, which is protected and separated from the auditorinm by a high wall, the animals became enraged and attacked each other with tremendous cury. One of the bears was accidentally struck on the head by a board, and with a savage growl, hoe sprang upon one of the leopards. A terrific struggle iollowed.

Horticultural Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
Horticultural Notes. The very heibht of strawberry eating is with offee. nobodyr ever really tastled coffee who ias not drunk it in alternate mouthfuls with trawberries, and nobody knows the strawberry laveor excepting immediately after tihe leauing if the taste which comes from drinking coffee, aye the New York "Post." The clearing ,roperty of coffee is familiar enogh, bhut there a strange ignorance of this special application cf it. The best of strawberries with the bestof :offee makes the supreme refinement of inu lulgence in the fruit. Asparagus and rhubarb plantations should not be weakened by too long a season of gather. ng. A good rule to follow is to use the esparagus as required until good marrow fat peas become plentiful. In like meaner the rh barb should ?e permitted to grow as soon an a good supply of summer fruits come to hand. Both these crops are more valuable early in the year. In ordertokeep upthe standard of ecellence in cucumbers, melons and tomatoes the seed shou...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. A Withered Rose. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
THE LADIES' COLUMN. A Withered Rose. 'IL only a faded rose, my dear, With it petals dry and dead : Since itsbirth in a fragrant country lane, SOme thirty years have fled. Thirty years, my dear, of sorrow and care Have passed since it lay in my glossy hair. Jone's sunnlight was on the land, my dear, And the roses were all in bloom, And the scent of the tasselledclover came With the meadows sweet perfume; And the drowsy ham of the bees was sweet, And the brook sang gaily beside my feet. The sky was never so blue, my dear, Asit was that summer day; And never before did the daisies shine As they did in the meadow way, When a band, long dust in the churchyard mould, Placed that poor dead rose in my curls of gold. Myourney is nearly done, my dear, e shadows are fallin fast, And the old, old pain will pass, my dear, Away from my heart at last, When Imeet my lover no more to part, When that dead rose lies on a silent heart! 1 M. Itocc.
A Mohammedan Convert. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
A Mohammedan Convert. r --o ? s The "New York Herald" publishes an Ii interview with a certain Mr Alex. Russell tj Webb, an American, converted to Moham- is medanism in India, who has returned to f his own country, there to protect the faith of p1 the Prophet. In the course of the interview t hesays: One can scarcely open an American news paper that he does not read of some re volting instance of man's or woman's p immorality or disloyalty. For years the Gt Christian Church has fought crime and a misery and immorality, but crime and misery and immorality still exist-yes, are even increased. We never see an outcast woman b upon the streets of a Mohammedan city. We never witness any of those revolting scenes C common to our own cities. The besotted, filthy, disgusting creatures, bereft of all t of the nobler instincts of manhood and e womanhood, who come before the judges ¶ of our police courts in New York, could not exist in a lodlm ity. I am a believer n 1 polygamy. Before you throw...
The King of Servia and the Robber. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
The King of Servia and the at Robber. th A meeting between the robber chief a Dragies and the young King of Servia, of which took took place recently, was a far more .romantic affair - than as originally reported. The Vienna correa- a pondent of the 'Standard," says the King, 0o attended by a strong escort, went for a drive 1 on Saturday over the well-wooded mountains to Usicze, when suddenly a man, armed to u the teeth, darti~ out of the dense forest, and holding out a pistol stopped the horses of the King'e carriage. This wes'all done so quickly that there was no time for any one to be able to prevent the man shooting at the King had he really meant muschief. Before the escort t and suite, however, had sufficiently collected themselves to seize the man, he threw away his weapon, and, sinking on his knee, ex claimed: "hMy Lord and King; I am the robber chief Dragies, upon whore head thy Govern ment has set a priceof three thousand francs. I Up to the present they have not been able...
Finger Nails. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
Finger Nails. A prominent uptown manicure who has de. voted many years to the study of the subject states as the result of his observations that the finger nails of the human species grow more rapidly in children than in adult,, and that the growth is slowest with the aged. His observations, however, do not stop at this, forhe finds that both in childhood and agetheygrowfaster insummer than winter. In one instance a nail that required 132 days to renew in winter renewed in summer inexactly 116 days. During both seasons the patient upon whom this experiment was made en joyed normal health. The methodof testing the growth was in each instance the same; The nail was pared close and'slightly notched at the quick: Both the right and the left hand were etudied,with theresult that he affirms that the growth of finger nails is more rapid on the right hand than on the left As the person was right handed it is presumed that the contrary is true of loft handed individuals.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
PLAYS AND PLAYERS The reconont o?Xesers Gilbert and Sullivan, and the resumption of the produc tion by Mr D Oyley Carte at the Savoy Theatre, London, of their joint works, was signalied on the 7th October by the initial performance of Utopia (Limited); or The. Flowers of Progress. The crowded hob e that assembled was in the best of humor, and most cordially welcomed the latest effort of "The Savoyarde," as they are sometimes styled. Certainly no other writers deserve the title better, and though in the interval of the dieassociation of Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan, many comio operas came, yet none developed such staying powers as those of the popular collaborators. Playful satire of English institutions is the leading theme in Utopia. The Princess Zara; daughter of Paramount, King of Utopia, anialandin the South Pacific, after a five years' residence in England, returns and brings with her, "with a view of re modelling the politisl and social institutions of Utopia, six representativ...
St. Petersburg to Paris on a Bicycle. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
Slt, Petersburg to Paris on a Bicycle. I. Terront, the French bicyclist, who has junst ridden from St. Petersburg to ra?is, has given our correspondent in the latter eity some account of his journey. The Russians, he says, are friendly people, but they do not know how to make good roads. He could never have imagined snoh bad roads as theirs. They were indeed not rideable. For a couple of hun dred miles he was in a mud river called a road. The mud was sticky and it was Im. possible to ride. In the mire were deep rats andatoneslikeboouldei. He had to trudge alongside his bicycle. In the sandy part of Russian Poland the machine was con stantly sinking deep in the sand. The cold was biting, and there were sleet storms. He bought sacks, which toe cut open at the ends, and, making slits in them for his arms, wore them over his close-fitting bnok akin garments. Governors of towns accompanied him cmt on the way in their troikas. The Iolish ladies at Warsaw covered him with oanpliments and f...

Scene at the Paris Morgue. Daly, a man who murdered his wife in the Rae Bou:bvadon, was taken to the Morgue . in order to undergo judicial interrogation before the body of his victim. The " Telegraph" Paris correspondent says that when the cloth was taken off the corpse the murderer covered his face with his pooket. handkerohief, and with tears beggedto be ex cused from answering any more questions. The juge d'nstruatlon said to him: "Tell the truth, Daly. Your wife was a well conducted woman. Do not sully her memory by allowing unjust suspiolons to remain attached to it. Jsuions will remember it for you if you do your duty." The prisoner persisted in his original astte ments, and maintained that his crime wasa solely due to jealonuy.

The Czar in Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
The Czar in Denmark. The Czar generally takes the initiative in all his cecurrionsand drives from Fredenaborg and (says the "Daily News") is nearly always surrounded by a crowd of little Russian, Greek and Danish Princes and Princesses, who adore their uncle Alexander. Sometimes he enters a confectioner's chop with them or a toy-shop and lets them choose what they like, to their great delight, and that of the proprietor. The Czar lives very simply. He walks about the streets of the town, plainly dressed, accompanied only by theRoyalPrnoceses. He enters the firststop he may happen to pass, either to make pur chasesor to take some refreshment. Thishas made the Czar very popular in Copenhagen. As usual, the Czarhasmade a considerable number of purchases at jeweller's shops, and given Danish artists large orders. Thejewel lerylsintended mostly for presents, especially amongst the police. The latter have, during the Czar's stay, a veryhard time of it, as they have to watchsharply every s...

COLONEL NORTH'SLGREY-'" HOUNDS. s Pity poor old Falterton! Hle is to be b bereaved of his umeroe stiters,: considn, t unts and male relations. Colonel North hlias saidthe wordwith the cold-blodedness of a Virginian slave-owner before the war. Who that is fond of greyhounds does .not remember the lament of Bonny Heck, and Sir Walter Scott's comments thereon! The owner of famous Maida again and again regretted the stern necessity of despatching and seloiling his dogs. But it is reassuring to learn that Colonel North is only parting with the yonnger hounds that are kept at Eltham. In order to see the dogs before they were bhought under the hammer at the l?erbisan repository .a representative of "The Westminster Gazette" went to Eltham, andwas shown over the Avondale Kennels. These keonnels are situated in upicturesque part, whence agood view of their owners t mansion is obtained.

Hyp[?]otising a Prisoner, [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 24 November 1893
Hypootising a Prisoner, Such a thing as a jury is unknown in Holland, says the "Pall Mall Gazette." The Bench consists of three judges only, who have not only to render a verdict according to their personal conviction of the ac cased's guilt, but have to take. into consideration whether the required legal evidence has been forthcoming, and whether the crime, as alleged by the prosecution in the terms of the law, has been proved. For the new criminal law in Holland (like the German one) enters into a whole web of nice distinctions. The accused may in this state of his case, as during the in. quiry, abstain from giving any infer. mation or declaration, and no pressure is allowed to be exercised on him. Even his avo'al,if not sufficiently sustained by other evidence, is unable to bring about his conviction. Therefore, in DeJong's case,he couldnot be declared guilty of murder of the two women unlessit were substantially proved not only that some action of his was the cause of their deat...
