SKETCHER. DELIRIUM TREMENS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
-+ DELIRIUM TREMENS. , Dr. Hendon of Now York recently attended a muscular young man admitted to hospital in the uotive Btage of delirium tremens. Ho constantly referred to his tongue and complained that it was ohoking him to death. He was persuaded to lie down and to bo quiet, bat when next seen he was ou his knees frantically thrusting fltBt one and then the other hand into his mouth, au if trying to dig out something with his finger-nails. On the floor was a large pool of blood and his tongue whioh 1 had been torn out by the root. The haemorrhage was chocked and the patient's ! hands were secured in a leather muff, but in about an hour he succeeded in freeing thom and again olawed at the root of his tongue whilst the blood spurted iu jett> between his fingers. "When Dr. Hendon approached he sprang upon him with the fury of a maniac and forced him to the floor. He endea- voured to get his fingers round Dr. Hondon's throat, who realised that it was a struggle for life, his assis...
FOOD LOST IN COOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
FOOD LOST IN COOKING. .Experta oonneoted with the experiment stations of the United States Department of Agriculture have been making some inter- esting tests showing the losses in the boiling of vegetables ano, the composition and digestibility of potatoes and eggs. The director of these experiment stations remarks that, although the greater part of the food of man is prepared for use by cooking, yet the changes which various foods nndergo during the process and the losses whioh are brought about by cooking had been pre- viously little studied. Few persons know that in 10O pounds of uncooked cabbage there are but 7£ pounds of dry matter and that of this dry matter from to 3 pounds aie lost in the process of cooking. This loss seems to be unavoidable, unless the cabbage is cooked in such a man- ner that the water in whioh it is boiled is also used. Jn the experiments whioh have just been me de, potatoes, carrots and cab- bages were seleoted as being the best repre- sentatives of tub...

AFTER THE SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
AFTER THE SALES. To many of os sales are a snare and a bitter delusion. Irresistible bargains often prove 'white elephants* to those who have bought * not wisely,* but ' too much.' Lengths of silk, tartan, or ribbons pan al- ways be utilised. Fronts, neok stocks, waist- bands, sashes, or sleeves may all be made of these remnants. Fnll hat orowns, toqnes, and trimmings are all commendable artioles to fashion from the odd bit of satin, brooade, ' or velvet bought for a fow pence at a smart sale. The economical will have given an eye to the more sober charms of calico, flannelette and flannel. This is the best time to pnr ohase such goods cheaply. Besides, there is the advantage of getting the sewing well over before tho milder weather and lengthen- ing days tempt ono to 'put away that oalioo.' A dozen yards of lace may be had for a small sum at any of the large sales. With this and four yards of cambrio any girl may make a lovely pettiooat, the full laoe-edged flounce of whioh will pr...
WHAT GOOD TEETH MEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
WHAT GOOD TEETH MEAN". To a oertain extent they mean good digestion and consequently good health. The teeth should be mudo to do their proper share of work by masticating the food well before it is allowed to pass into the stomaoh. This thoy oan hardly bo expcoted to do if they ure not kopt in good condition. If you have not a good d i gos t ion you must not expeot to have a good complexion, and that is what moBt women wish to possess. It is a most unwise thing to foros tho stomach to do the work whioh should have boen done by the teeth, and this is what happens generally when tho teeth are in a bad condition. The ministrations of the dentist are necessary for everyone ; the expense may be a serious consideration at first, but a doctor's bill is likely to be more serious later on. Bat the dentist cannot do all that is neces- sary. Strict attention must be paid to cleaning, night as well as morning, the eight cleaning being almost moro important than that in the morning, particularly...
SPANISH PRISONER FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
SPANISH PRISONER FRAUD. I Still another version of the ' Spanish pri- soner* fraud, and this time a particularly successful case, has to be recorded. On Saturday two ladies of Saint Etienne pre- sented for payment ut the ' Société Generale' a oheque for the enormous sum of 820,000fr. on tho Bank of * London-Mexico.* There waB no account in that name at the 'Société I Genorale,' and the oashier, thinking ho had . to deal with a most obvious attempt at fraud, ! retained the oheque, and caused the two ladies to be conducted to the nearest com- missaire of police. Both ladies expressed the greatest indignation, and it speedily became evident that they were not the perpetrators bnt the victims of a daring swindle. Under the examination of the police commissary they told the following talo :-A few dava ago they received a letter from Barcelona Eurporting to come from a Cuban officer who ad boen taken prisoner during the insur- rection, and who was in durance vile at Bareelona.

FRENCH CONVICT'S ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
FRENCH CONVICTS ADVENTURES. After undergoing extraordinary vicis- situdes, Plaoide Sohouppe, Anarchist and burglar, who wa8 condemned in 1889 to 10 years' transportation, and who a twelve- month later succeeded in escaping from J?renoh Quiana, has been arrested. The man had run away with Pini and another fellow prisoner of Roumanian origin. The trio contrived to get into Dutch Guiana, and during their wunderings in the woods the Roumanian wa8 devoured by wild beasts. Some little time after Fini was fired on and oaptured by gendarmes and sent baoît to Erenoh Guiana. Left alone, Sobouppe con- trived, after being shipwrfoked, to roaoh Mexico, whence he sailed to England, where he remained some time, subsequently crossing over to Belgium, «vhere his performances as a burglar led to his condemnation to five years' imprisonment. Recently released, Schouppe imprudently resolved on coming to Paris. Although the police were on the watch for him at the Gare de Nord, he con- trived to slip thr...
WHEN A SMILE IS BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
WHEN A SMILE IS BEAUTIFUL. ¡ Many folks disfigure the whole faae"when I they eBBay a smile. A foroed or affected 1 smile is generally a downright contortion. I We have all shuddered at the ridiculous , faces made by tho trioky shopman who is trying his level boat to sell both bis oustomer and a bad article. A smilo which has no meaning in it appears only on tho lips, while the eyes romain cold, unmeaning*, and un mirthful. Wo could woll tako a lesson from the Oriental in this direction. With the features in calm repose, lips lightly ourved by a pleasing emotion, and the glory of the smile* beautiful gloaming from expressive eyes. Widening of the mouth, display of teeth distortion of the nostrils and cheeks, and disarrangement of the whole countenance takes placo when tho 'broad smile* of our oountry is indulged in.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
TAKE GARE OF YOUR OLOTHES. When you return from a walk change your dress, shake it well, and hang it up at once. Nothing spoils the freshness of a gown so quiokly as sitting by the fire in it. When putting pn new gloves, insert the fingers gently, working the glove evenly on all the fingers and putting the thumb last of all. lt will greatly facilitate tho process if you put the gloves near tho fire for a few moments before putting them on. When, removing them turn the glove in hide out from the wrist and peel it off thus. Pull the glove carefully into shape and lay it by in a flat box. Veils should be straightened and rolled on a piece of card or roll of paper when taken off. If a jagged tear is mado in a kid glove, it is better to buttonhole stitch round the torn edges before attempting to draw them together. Felt and moreen petticoats require frequent bashing. When out at the hem, bind the edge with bias velveteen. Striped skirts hang better it the hem is interlined with canvas.
CHILDREN'S GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
CHILDREN'S GOWN. When simplioity ia certainly tho keynote of good taste in children's olothes, one likes to fee a marked change in the out and style of their garment*, after several years of praorioally one fashion. Next Bummer ia likely to bring many new arrangements for dresses and hats, whioh are, to judge by the models, both suitable and quaint. Sao-like jackets, reaohing in full pleats to the waist, is the form of one novelty. Tho 'plato* or flat bonnet, tied on with narrow ribbonB and trimmed solely with a rosette of wild flowers, leaves or grasses, is also an innovation. Muslin dresses, reaching the ankles, and flounoed to tho waist with liliputian frills, are likely to prove irksome both to mothers and their wee wearers. Should tho season prove vvarm, quite short puffed sleeves and Blipchtly low-neoked dresses will be seen on children. A small Cottage* bonnet is to rival the much worn 'Dutoh' shape.

QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
QUESTIONS. ABB ALL OAS ENOINBS AMO STEAM KNonrag, IN AMT SBNBKP-Quite one of the strong* points in an up-to-date engineering educa- tion is to demonstrate this faot ; that every gas engine is also a steam engine in tho moBt literal senne. For what is tho motive fluid in a gas engine, if not burnt hydrogen, that is (to put it more popularly) steam ? Of oourso, I do admit that in tho oylinders of these interesting and powerful engiues wo have other elastic fluids (or, to be popular again, other gaBe?) than dry steam. We have, fer instanoe, oarbouio aoid ; for there is a lot of oarbón in acme burninur-gas. And there may be oarbonio oxide and other oompounds also present, in moro or lesa unimportant quantities. But exaotly the same thing is also true, in degree, of tho oaso of a stoam engine. There aro hydro-oarbon vapours present in the steam oylindor. So I should say, thoro oan bo no sense whatoveT in whioh a gas engine doe» not partake very largely indeed of tho oharaotor of a stoam ...
LEMON SOUFFLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898
LEMON SOUFFLE. Carefully and thinly peel one large lemon, &nbsp; and set the peel in half a pint of milk in a warm place to steep ; then take one and a &nbsp; half ounces of butter and melt it in a stew- pan, mixing in with it an equal quantity (one and a half ounces) of cornflour and sugar, the boiling milk being added by slow degrees, cooling this all together for a min- ute ; then remove the lemon rind, and, taking the yokes of three eggs, beat them into the mixture off the fire, and when quite cool beat in the whites of the eggs. Another way is to rub off the lemon rind on to the lump sugar, but if so a second lemon would be required.
