OLD MAIDS MADE SO BY LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898

OLD MAIDS MADE SO BY LAW. There are, perhaps, a large number ol spinsters in Bermuda in proportion to thc population than in any other plaoe on the for pide of tho Atlantic, and it io a ouriout fact that this is the letsult of the law of the land. The semi-tropical olimate of the islands and their isolation has made of the inhabit- ants of English stook a quiet, almost slug- gish, folk of a simplicity nearly Arcadian. Tho women eBpeoially, many of whom live very narrow lives, never leaving these islands, are remarkable for their old fashioned hospitality and a natural ease of manner which seems to ariyo from an entire faith in those with whom they come in con- tact. Perhaps the f aot that it would be very difficult for a oriminal to escape from the islands may account for it, but at any rate orime is very rare there. Bermudian women are excellent house- wives and bring up largo families of child- ren, some of tho most favoured young folks being sent off to the United States for educ...

SCIENCE. LIMITS OF THE POWER OF HEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 30 April 1898

Hnnraa. LIMITS O JP THE POWER OF HEAR* ING. Lord Rayleigh in determining the fre- quency of vibrations to which the ear is sensitive give» the lower limit as twenty four complete vibrations a second, and the upper as about twenty thousand a second. Those limits are however, very ill-deter- mined, because the matter depends largely on the vigour of the vibration and the individual ear. Old people do not hear high notes which are audible to young persons, and babies may hear notes which persons twenty or thirty years of age cannot deteot. Experiments on the extent of vibration necessary to audition appear to show that a vibration having an amplitude e^preesed in centimetres by a fraction having eight for its numerator and one, followed by eight ciphers, for its denominator could still affect che ear. To make a comparison with the limits of microscopic vision, the vibration that is just peroeptible to the oar would have to be multiplied by one hundred before it oould be seen by any pos...

SANDOWS ADVT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 7 May 1898

SANDOWS ADVT. An amusing story ia connected with the period of ' Sandow s life when he had quar- relled with his partante, who would not oon eent to his becoming a professional athlete, and, unable to procure an engagement, he became reduced to his last pennies in .Amsterdam. Scattered about tho city were a number of weight lifting slot machines, and from those Sandow oonoeived the idea of procuring advertisements. Ono night he went round the city, and, dropping a penny into the slpt of eaoh, broke thom ono after the other. There was a great outcry, and he was ultimately arrested, but pardoned, on the ground that having paid the fee he was entitled to try his strength on tho machines. -So muoh attention was caused by the feat that whereas he had been unable to earn twelve guilders a night before he was now offered twelvo hundred a week.

A GAMBLER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 7 May 1898

A GAMBLER. The champion punter at the Monte Carlo . tablea this year is a Russian. He walked up to one of the tables and put a great roll of * »otes on the red. On the top of this roll he .*. ^pfliBted on putting a pair of spectacles and a ? penknife. The croupiers objected, but allowed him to do so sooner than have a dis- turbance. The red turned up, but the Rus- sian had vanished. The croupiers opened the roll of notes, whioh was in value about abc times the value of the highest stake paid, . and paid the maximum. Still the Russian ' did not put in an appcaranoe. Once more zed won, and the maximum was paid. Then the Russian appeared in a state of excita - iment. He had forgotten all about the notes, and when told of his luck oared nothing for it; hat he had missed his spectacles, and was very anxious to recover them.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 7 May 1898

The Chinese cultivate au odourless onion. In proportion to its size a fly walka aboat thirty-five times as fast as a man. In Japan coins are gen rally of iron, and in Siam they axe ohiefly of porcelain. The Prussian workman is compelled by law; * to insure his life. i '. The camphor-tree takes several hundred years to attain its full size. It is estimated that nearly half the railway ' mileage of the world is found in the United : States. A hundred years ago native oysters were . sold in England at the pr iee of a penny for five. In India the rhododendron grows to a height of thirty faet. ' Marigolds and camomiles in North Africa reaoh a height of four or five. feet.

By the old barque, and in the »mall of tar ; While tho full ocean on the pebbles dropped, And in our oars the intimate low wind Of noon, that breathing from some anoient place, Blew on us merest nleep and pungent youth. . So deeply glad he grew that in pnre joy Closer wo came ; your wild and wet dark hair Slashed in my eyes your essaende and your sting, We had co thought; we troubled not to speak ; . . Slowly your head fell down upon my breast, In the soft breeze the acquiescing sun ; And the sea-bloom, the colour of oalm wind, Was on your oheek ; like children then we kissed, Innocent with the sea and pure with air ; My spirit fled into thee.

LADIES' COLUMN. WELL-FITTING CORSETS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 7 May 1898

WELL - FITTING CORSETS. Every woman knowe, or is supposed to know, that her oorset should be laced with oare, but every woman does not know how it is done. Flat silk laoes aro by all means the best. One way is to use a lace three yards and a balf long for tho top. Begin by inserting one end in every other eyelet as far as the waist line, and lace the other end through every vacant eyelet. Two yards of lacing will be required below the waist lino. Begin at the bottom and work tho lacing up as before directed. Laced in this fashion, the top and bottom laces may be adjusted independently of each other. Another way is to use throe laces. Lace tho top to the fourth eyelet as described, and then tie. Use the second lace to the waist line, and the third below, beginning at the bottom. The fit of a gown depends largely on the correct lacing of the oorset.

DEFRAUDING THE TIGER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 7 May 1898

DEFRAUDING; THE TIGER. I knew au old shikari, (says A Sarathknmar Ohoah,).who had fought many a hattie with the royal Bengal tiger, and had many a hair-breadth esoape from the latter's jaws. When too old to carry on his campaigns, he delighted in telling an admiring audience, in hjfl native village, ail tho adventures of his life ; then, when ho waxed warm over the heroio theme, he, like au old warrior, would shoulder his crutoh (metaphorically, of oourse) and fight anew the battles of his youth. But among these adventures, the following is perhaps the most noteworthy. Ono fine afternoon, having nothing better to do, he went out fishing with half a dozen of hw friends-this is not going to be a fish story, but a real, live tigor story, the fishy part coming in only incidentally. Thoy ohoso a email river some oouple of hundred yards in width. One bank of the river was nat and open, but the other was somewhat undulating and shrubby-in faot, it was ad- jacent to a jungle. The fishers sa...
