ON VISITING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
ON VISITING. Í AU young p sople doñire to be woloomed wherever they may go, but many do not Know that they themselves are almost entirely responsible for tho degree of warmth of the reception accorded to them. Thero is an art in being a welcome guest that may be ' acquired, instead of being a gift of Dame Fortune, as too many believe. First, you mm-t cultivate good ^humour in every day life, that it may not desert you at a critioal moment, leaving an impression that any amount of subBequont pleasantry on your part will be unable to efface. Seoond, learn to talk of things, not people, and remember that to ho a questioner of tact i and intelligence is one of the important ¡ requisites of the weloome gueät. Tact pre- vents the asking of impertinent questions, or those calculated to air the knowledge of the questioner rather than that of the questioned. Never ask a question when you are not reasonably sure that it can be answered by the person addressed. Intelligence prevents the asking...
ENGLISH LETTER. FOR THE COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
ENGLISH LETTER. FOE THE COAST. I have lately seen some exceptionally taste- ful and appropriate gowns and costumes prepared for visits to the coast. White flannel, white serge, and white drill are, one and all, excessively popular just now ; and a very attractive combination is a white flannel or serge skirt worn with Paisley« patterned silk or oashmere, the patterned stufl3 being used to form skirt or corselet waist. A. sort of Eton coat-by whioh I mean a coat out in front as an Eton jacket is, but with basque at the back, quite unlike the said Eton' coat-looked remarkably well with a tight-fitting waistcoat of Paisley patterned material. The bandauna silk handkerchiefs are frequently used for vests to be worn with white serge or flannel ooats aud skirts. Bright red serge with facings of white cloth or of drill, aro approved by some women ; but your correspondent docs not add to their number. If a white dress is worn, let the hat be white also, or, if the serge be coarse or the cos...
BOOK STEALING AS A TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
BOOK STEALING AS A TBa.DE. Book-stealing seems co have been elevated into a regalar trade in Paris, fer, aooording to returns drawn up by the Prefeotuce of Police, the number of persons prosecuted for this offenoe within the last two years has been one hundred and forty-five. The amount of bail lodged, and of fe68 paid for hearing has exceeded £3,000 this sum being exclusive of counsel's lees and other legal expenses. Several publishers have received anonymously sums varying from £20 to £70 from persons who had stolen books from them, but who were impelled by either remorse or fear to make restitution. The publishers of illustrated works, en- cyclopaedias, and dictionaries are the greatest sufferers. Upwards of ten thousand volumes have been seized, and are now colleoted at the Palais de Justice for distribution among their rightful owners.
TRAVELLER. THE EXECUTION MACHINE OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
THE EXECUTION MACHINE OF FRANCE. There is only one guillotine in France, all others having long since been destroyed. The one that remains has its headquarters at Paris, but it travels all over the country. In the coarse of its peregrinations the instru- ment is governed by local o us toms, and ac cording to their nature, are executions painful or painless. In some departments the oondemned is slowly taken to the place of execution through the streets, and toilet details depend on looal precedents. In Fans only about fifteen minutes inter- venes from the waking of the prisoner to tho fall of his head in the basket ; but in the country the hungry knife is sometimes al- lowed to wait for its viotim for hours.

SKETCHER. 'PURE WELL OF ENGLISH UNDEFILED.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
« PURE WELL OF ENGLISH UNDE- FILED/ v The complaint ha» been made not .infra r quently, and with ever-increasing vehemence that the picturesque language of the journal- ist is gradually supplying a totally distinot and novel mode of epeeoh. We have grown quite acouBtomed to 'vehicular catastrophes,' which is, I imagino, journalese for 'cab accidents.' We are used to hearing that su oh-an d-such a footballer 'manipulated the spheroid' : but we really must draw the line at being told that a certain opinion is pre- valent ' amongst tho cognoscenti.' I can picture the portly ghoat of Dr. Johnson turning green with envy in the Elysian Fields. HÍB reputation for that kind of perpetration waa deservedly high, and yet even he reaobed no loftier flight than giving the stable boy a small tip, and telling him, ' in consideration of this pecuniary recom- pense to extricate the quadruped from the vehicle and administer to its internal economy a grateful application of frumentary nutri- ment.* I<...

Will accept ¿610 from first applicant.-4 MAJOB.' About this time of year, some suoh an- nouncement as the above may frequently be . seen in the advertisement columns of the daily newspapers. Occasionally it is a bona fide offer, but, in the majority of cases, the advertiser is an enterprising individual who has a warehouse full of perfeotly new coats, which, knowing human nature, he means to dispose of more profitably «a second-hand articles. Replies are generally sent to the office of a West-end agenoy, but the 'Major' or 'Count* himself is to he found at his shop in some unsavoury alley off Houndsditch. His ' sacrifices' are really well-made garments, and, as /'ar as the olothis concerned, of excel- lent material ; but they are lined with oheap imitation fur, and out of each coat sold for £10, it is safe to say that t...

A VALUABLE DISCOVERY [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
A VALUABLE DISCOVERY Scientists tell us that in this nineteenth century of ours about tho greatest strides runde in the discovery world have been in medicine. We have to record a discovery by an American medical man of a certain vegetable substance that has the'-effect in the digestion organs of Nature's own animal bile. This discovery is revolutionizing all the present methods of treatment for digestive ailments. The old theory of pepsin, bismuth, starving, purging, etc., etc., is to be done away with. This great vegetable substance is compounded with other ingredients to facilitate the working, and to-day this remedy can be purchased the world over and in Australia at 9£d per box, under the the nnme of Bile Beans for Biliousness. This great remedy possesses the peculiar properties of acting on the bowels without purging or otherwise weakening the patient. This is be- cause the substance that relaxes the bowels has about the same action as the natural bile. Bile Beans are purely ve...
EFFECT OF HARD TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
EFFECT OF HARD TIMES. N ?? ! 'I ? A story was recently told of how a preacher tested the öffnet of hard times upon his oon grogation. At tho conclusion of one of his sermons he anid : «« Lnt everybody in the houäe who pay their debts stand up." Instantly, every cuan, woman and child, with one exception, rose to their feet. He sentod the crowd, and then said : " Let every man who is uot paying his debts stand up." Tho exception noted, a care-worn, hungry lookiug individual, clothed in his last sum- mer suit, slowly assn med a perpendicular position, and leaned upon the back of the seat in front of him. " How is it, my friend," inquired tho minister, " that you aro tho only man in thia large congregation who ie unable to pay his obligations ?"

CRICKET THE return match, Liverpool Council v. Cabramatta and Canley Vale Council, was played in Mr. Page's grounds, Canley Vale, on Wednesday afternoon last. The teams included the principal officers of each coun- cil and were captained by the respective Mayors.

Waugh, Stimson and Bull, were disposed of for 149 runs. The visitors then took the creases and by dusk had scored 111 runs with the loss of nine wickets.

IN A THIRD-CLASS CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
IN A THIRD-CLASS CARRIAGE. BARTA' in February of this year (1894) I was navelling in a third-class carriage in the neigh- borhood of Glasgow. At a station two women entered the compartment in which I was seated. One was a girl, gaudily dressed ; the other a typical working woman. She had no hat or bonnet, and wore a Btnff petticoat, with a shawl wrupped round lier. She was the picture of rude, robust health. The girl askud ¡how her companion was, re- marking that she had heard s he had been far from well. " 'Deed, but 1 was," responded the elder woman; " I thocht I was at deith's door." " Ah say, what like was the matter wi' 3'e ?" " 1 cud dae nae work ; if I tried to wash the. floor I got siccin a heart beatin', and my stomach fair turned at the sieht o' food.

Original Novel. THE Daughters of Eye; ale of the Kaorî Sar By EDWIN DOIDGE. Author of ' Father and Son,' « The Mystery of Mervellioo/eto. CHAPTER XVII.-(CtomroroBD.) I * He is no more a savage than yon or I.' ' I thought as I looked at him,* oontinned the captain, ' that such a Maori-if Maoris ever come to be given a seat in the ' Parlia- ment of the country-would not disgraoe the Legislature.' ( They will be there some day, I fancy,' said Ward. And he was right. Ere five years more had gone over the troubled history of New Zealand, Maori representatives were ad- mitted to sit side-by-side with the Euro- peans who were making the laws of the country. ? . * ' * Next morning, while the sun was playing joyfully on the glistening waters of the Hauraki Gulf, the oamp was early astir, and two of the earliest to rise were Hinemoa and Charley Ward. It was a strange thing Ward found the daughter of the ohief doing when he went round to the wharé where the ohief had lodged that night. Long Go...
The Liverpaul Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898
PUBLTSTTED EVERY SATURDAY MolWIXG. \ SATURDAY, APRIL 23. 1898. IT is slowly but surely drawing on those who have studied Mr. Reid, and know how astute and dexterous he is in the face of difficulties, that the present Parliament will not meet again. No sooner will the Federal Referen- dum numbers be known than Mr- Reid will spring a general election upon the country, and although his stratagem will be one of ex- treme daring and danger, still it will be a trump card to play under the extraordinary circumstances. His determination to sup- port the Federal Bill has not only cast the greater section of his party against him, but it has put the entire Labor party in an- tagonism to him. If Mr. Reid met Parlia- ment in June next he would be compelled, through the force of circumstances, to dis- close a deficit, and he hus time and oft de- clared that his name would not be associated with a deficit. Again, if he meets tho House he will have to keep his promise to the Labor party to propose...

CHAPTER XVIII. BrsaB OF THB KiwAUKAWA PAH. The morning meal having been got ' through early, the message as indicated in the previoue chapter was sent by the two men who had taken the previous message to Bewai Ngaka. And on this occasion Iiong George added, « There will be no delay! The whole company will follow in half-an-hour.' They made a good procession-the men of Long George, who eaoh carried a rifle,' tho twenty troopers, who carried oarbines and revolvers. The sixty men were good'and true, and their respective leaders knew they would fight to the bitter end to aooomplish their objeot. ' When the besiegers came to within a hundred yards of the stream whioh flowed close to the foot of tha high bank, whioh was the eastern side of the Pah, they paused, and while they waited for the return of the mes" sengere, Long George, Captain Lumley, and Ward, consulted together ag to tb*- * of attaok.
