ROUND ROBIN HOOD'S BARN. NECESSITY is tho mother of invention, and tile hungry Frenchman told about in a biography recently published iu Eoglund illustrates the old adage anew. He was in an Englinh restaurant and wanted eggs fur breakfast, but had forgotten tho English' word. 80 he got around the difficulty in the following wa j' : - " V »Herrn, vat is dat valking iu de yard ?"

A CLERK IN TROUBLE. " Leave the office this minute ! How dare you stay till this hour of tho night ! If 1 catch you herc after ten o'clock again it will go hard, with you i Don't you know that late and ir- regular hours bring on indigestion and all that sort of thing ? Get out !" The old gentleman may have boen a bit harsh, but he was quito correct in his statements. Irregularity is the cause of a great many disorders of the digestive organs, such as constipation, indigestion, head- aches, etc., and for any and all of these aliments there is no cure so good a?

"HOME, SWEET HOME." [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
" HOME, SWEET HOME." What a beautiful plnee home is when tho father is Iii I in U¿Í, tho mother is suffering from female vreaknoís, and the bilby hag tho croup ; father frown?, and swears, mother scolds and grumbles, and baby yells ! And yet this hus- band and wife inay^bo two of the bost-naturcd and reasonable people on tho glolx? when they aro in good health, lt may scorn ridiculous to say that nearly all doniostio disagreements are caused by tho liver, but a careful study ol' tho problem reveals tho fact that such nu assertion is quito within the. bounds of reason. When a person is in ill-health they aro impatient, un- reasonable, and quarrelsome ; what more natural then than a family " tiff " Few people aro cynical enough to behove that married couples don't wish for peace and harmony, and sumo reason must, therefore, ho found for their all too common differences. Bile Beans coi no, therefore, in the guise of a peacemaker ; they ' put tho liver in ¿youd order, and invigorate tho...

Beans.-The bean has been cultivated from very remote antiquity. All cultivated beans are annuals, having upright fibrous stems rising from two to four feet high. The flowers are usually white, with a blaok spot in the middle of the wing ; these are succeeded by long thick legumes or pods, woolly within and enolosing large flat seeds. These flowers are very fragrant, and the rich perfume of a bean field when the plants are in lull blossom is delightful to all lovers of 'simple rural pleasures. The popular division of the several varieties is like that of peas, into field beans and garden beans. Beaus are propagated by seed sown in rows from two to three feet asunder, either by the dibble, or by drilling the early kinds in the autumn,...
BARRACK ROOM SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
BABBAGE: BOOM SLANG. Search where, you will, I doubt if you will find a place whero slang is raised to the level of a high art and cultivated more assiduously than in a barrack room. One might say it is a rule never to call a person or thing by the right name if you know a slang one ; and if you don't know one-well it's a sign you are a recruit or have sadly missed your opportunities. Slang is applied impartially from punish- ment to a pair of boots, and, in the main, is as unintelligible to a civilian as the romany of the gipsies. As to some of the expressions, of course, their genesis and appropriateness lie upon the surface, suoh as ' cow-squeeze' for milk, 'spotted mystery* for potted beef, or 1 straight through' for hot coffee ; but who shall say what gave rise to ' tinkledorum* or ' osmajetty,' the oommon names of brass deaning paste ; or ' yag,' meaning a tum of spell ? Tea is * boiled calamity,' oatmeal ' burgoo,' bread 'rooti' or ' mungerie,' and pudding ' duff.' ' There's ...
AUSTRALASIA AND 'THE BALANCE OF ASIA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
AUSTRALASIA AND * THE BALANCE OF ASIA. It is well to look at the map when you read about the dividing up of China, the position of England in the East, and the future of the world. It is the stranger who most realises tho power of Great Britain, the magnificence of the Indian Empire, tbe possible future of Australasia, and the mag- nitude of China. Mark Twain has conveyed to the reader a clearer idea of these things than any recent writer of travels. It is not worth while bothering with the Little Eng- lander, but the Big Englander may rrofitably and proudly contemplate some of the faots that stand in the Colonial and Eastern tramps of the famous Amerioan. For in- stance, the British Empire is not much short of a fourth larger than the Russian Empire. Germany and France are mere provinces compared with it. ' The populations ruled by Great Britain and China are about the same, 400,000,000 each. No other power approaches these figaree. Even Russia is left far behind.' But here is a wo...
DO BABIES OVERSLEEP? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
DO BABIES OVERSLEEP P An observant medical man recently ex- pressed the view that people sleep move than is good for their health. He now further .urges that even infants at the breast are allowed too muoh sleep ; that they need not only time to sleep but time to bo awako if their intellect is to bo awakened. The tendency to sleep shown by children and the uneducated is explained on the ground that their psychio world is so poor that it is almost impossible for them to take any interest in their own thoughts and ideas. It is argued that oven daring the first four or six weeks of life there ought to be two waking hours during tho day, and as the body grows the duration of wakeful period should gradually increase. All methods of patting ohildron to sleep artificially by means of monotonous sensations are strongly censured, including tho oroning of lullabies and the rooking of babies in oradles or Bimply in the arms. Hooking tho child in the arms or cradle is said to produo« sleep part...
ELECTRICAL ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
ELECTRICAL ROMANCE. An old electrical note has been going the rounds. The item told of an electric sword that has been suggested by on electrician to the War Office, as an effective addition to the equipment of the military service. A pooket battery waa to provide the soldier with a powerful ourrent of electricity, whioh was to be oarried through an insulated wire to the blade of the sword, tho slightest toaoh of the point of whioh would reduce the enemy to suoh a state of helplessness that he could be dismembered at leisure. This story is manifestly absurd. With the small meohanism proposed it would bo impossible to administer any more than a smart tingle to anybody. Items of this kind show the neoessity of a proper understanding of the fundamental principles of eleotrioity, whioh are not diffioult to grasp, and the possession of whioh might save inventors and those who baok them the expenditure of vast suma of money.
