LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD HE UPRAID. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

.LâDos' oobmar.' _A SHOULD HE TJPRAID. A woman ia made to obey at every stage pf her existence. Ab daughter, it is to her father and mother she owes submission ; as wife, to her husband, to her father-in-law, and to her mother-in-law ; as widow, to her dons She must also concentrate her thoughts on bar husband only, and mußt never look another man in the face. If her husband laugh, she must laugh ; if he bo sad, she muet be sad ; if ho weep, she must weep ; if he ask questions, she must answer. When he speaks, she must not intorrupt him, nor speak to anybody else ; when he calls her, she must leave everything and run to him. If he sing, she must hu in ecstasy ; if he dance, she must look at him with delight ; if he speak of learned things, she must listen to him with admiration. A wife must eat only after her husband has had his fiji. Let her bathe every day, rubbing saffron on her body. Let her attire be clean, her eyelids tinged with antimony, and her forehead marked with red pigm...

CITIES BUILT OF SHELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

CITIES BUILT OF SHELLS. Thore ia an old Dutch proverb to tho effect I that * Amsterdam is built on herring-heads.' 1 Though thia is rather far-stretohed, it isa fact that the gay city of Paris is principally built of shells. At first this seemB incredible, yet it can be easily proved by a visit to any of the neighbouring quarries, from whioh Paris obtains most of the matorial tor con- structing her houses and boulevards. The mountains where thepe quarries aro now to bo seon onoe formed the bed of an ancient sea, in whioh dwelt vast numbera of tiny shell-fish, to which geologists have given the name of 4 miliolo.' Those little molluscs, whose individual size doos not exceed and ia often le«a than a gram of millet, were so numerous that, settling on the floor of the sea, they in course of time formed the mountains of tho Paris basin, from which they are now quarried, closely oomented to- gether, and called by the French geologists 4 miliolite limestone.* Some idea of the minuteness of...

PADDY AND THE 'BRUSH.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

PADDY AND THE 4 BRUSH,* When I was a student at 1 dhear owld Trinity'' I had smuggled Paddy through tho quad and up to my rooms in oonnootion with urgent businoes pertaining to my strained relatious with the good people at home. Paddy, you must know, was my father's man-of-all-work, and my foster brother. After my little business had been dis* ousged I got Paddy talking of tho old days when he lived near oar manse in county Monaghan, and of his advantage there. 4 Ooh, my darhnt!' said Paddy, his eye sparkling brightly . ' and did I over tell you tho shtory of how I got the fox's brush ?' 'Never,' I answered, lighting1 my cigar- ette ; * so let's have it now, Paddy» straight off the reel.' * WeU,' he said, ' it all happened in the great barn at the owld furrn.' . ' . . ' Barn !' I exclaimed, with a laugh. ' Yes, ray darlint ; jist that same.

SHORT STORY THE COLONEL'S CASE. III.—(Continued from last week.) [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

THE COLONEL'S OASE, rec.-(Continued from last weah.) The Colonel and May always had a great ?deal to say to each other, or rather sim 'always had a great deal to Bay to him, and .he was always ready to liatón to her. They "went long country walliB together, and he ' learned much about her ; but of him-or rather of the past life which had made him ' what he was-she learned little or nothing. Perhaps she did not greatly caro to learn. At fifteen girls aro apt to he a little solt vcentred, and to recrurd everything from a purely personal standpoint. Their own pre- sent and future engage all their attention, to the exclusion of anybody else's past. This ? ss natural enough ; sympathy is generally . the child of experience, and, as a rule, these crude young souls have yet to buy their .experience. Yet May never struck the -Ctolonel as unsympathetic. He did not wish to speak to hor ot* himself, and she may have divined thiB ; moioo vor, the Rector had asked her to cheer bim up a hit ; and...

PERSONALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

Probably the only armless editor in the world is the gentleman who presides over the destinies of the ' Times Review,' pub- lished at Mount Pleasant in. Texas. An American named John Smith proposes to call upon all the Smiths in the world to contribute towards a magnificent building to be erected in honour of the name. It ia to oover 10 acres. When wigs were in fashion, to appear in a natural head of hair was accounted almost indecent. Henoe, when Kneller painted a portrait of Wyoherley, the dramatist, in his own hair, the poet could not bear the sight of it, and Sir Godfrey was obliged to paint a wig over the natural curls. One of the pests of being a well-known man is the shoals of begging-letters that assail him; Prince Bismarck reoeives these appeals by the thousand. One day his secretary added up tho sums begged for, and found that they amounted to 10,000,000 marks. Theie are l,50u people upon the German TSmpeor's lists of employees, inoluding 350 female servants, who are engag...

THE SUPREMACY OF SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

THE ST7PREMA0Y OF SLANG. When an examination is made into the reason for the existence of slang words, in nine oases out of ten the enquirer will find that there is an excellent excuse, not only for their coming into being, hut also for their remaining alive. The survival of the fittest is a law as in- exorable in philology as in zoology ; neither word* nor animals are exempt from its operation. When a word is needed to ex- press a particular idea, somebody invents one or adapts an old word to a new uso. When it is not a scientific term, and happens to suit the fancy of those who hear it, and so comes into general use almost immediately after its invention, purists are very apt to rise up in their love of purity, oall it slang, forbid their children to use it, and tell each other that the English language is becoming so corrupt that som6tl)iug m"st be done to prevent our mother tongue from being over- whelmed in a deluge of slang. But the leotures and remonstrances of the purists, w...

A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 23 April 1898

A CORNSTALK IN BRITAIN. AND WHAT HE SAW THERE. [BY W.T. C.] A day afc England's peace-preserving and war-preparing factory-Woolwich Arsenal. Plow shall I "describe rt? The "Jamieson Raid" fiasco, and the yelping of continental "dogs in the manger" at the grand old lion- ess, had just now accelerated the wheels of that gigantic workshop to a' speed that " went all round th« clock" for months. I saw 70 and 80 ton guns being cut and bored as easily as if they were cheese, while the "shields" of Maxim guns and armour plates with crimson glow were pounded under the huge steam hammers as though they were leadv Thousands of bullets per hour were flying into cartridge-cases in charge'of boys, grape, caunister, chain and bar'shot were' in constant circulation. Conical shot, 3, 5 and 9 feet long, were stacked ready for shipment. How the forges blaze. How the workmen ran to help as the molten metal, with its leaping flames, runs from the mighty fur- naces into sand moulds and casts. Hurrah ! A...

Mossrs. Barton, Wise, Abbott, Lyne, Copeland and the rest of tho extreme conservative Pro- tectionist gang will talk themselves hoarse and tho public ear will be m ad o to ache listening to tho tirades of this particular kind of pro- fessional politician, who lins everything to gain and nothing to loso by Federation. The g'orious future that awaits tho young man under tho glorified banner of a unitocl- Aus- tralia will bo graphically dopictod.

TRAVELLER. HARD LINES FOR GERMAN SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898

HARD LINES EOR GERMAN SOLDIERS. One result of enforced army service or conscription is that a Government has not to offer ita soldiers inducements to enlist. The German Government, for instanoo, 'now I furnishes its soldiers with only one meal a day. If they desire or need more, they have to get it at their own expense. The Press lias started on a oampaign to better thia state of affairs, but thus far has met with no Buooess. Among all other nations sol- diers' food ia distributed in a less niggardly 1 manner.

IN A THIRD-CLASS CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898

IN A THIRD-CLASS CARRIAGE. EARLY in Febrnnry of this year (1894) I was travelling 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 stuff petticoat, with a shawl wrapped round her. She was the picture of rude, robust health. The girl asked 'how' her companion was, re- marking that she "had heard s he had been far from well. u 'Deed, but 1 wns," responded the elder woman, " I thocht I was at deith's door."
