STRANGE INTOLERANCE. MR. HALL CAINE AND THE NATIONAL CLUB. WILL HE BE EXPELLED FOB OPENING A R.C. BAZAAR? [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
STRANGE INTOLERANCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MR. HALL CAINE AND THE NATIONAL CLUB. WILL HE BE EXPELLED FOR OPEN- ING A R.C. BAZAAR? That extremely respectable institution, the &nbsp; National Club, at Whitehall, was in a state of &nbsp; considerable agitation about the time the last &nbsp; mail left London. &nbsp; A few days before the general committee was &nbsp; called upon to consider the fact that Mr. Hall &nbsp; Caine had opened a Roman Catholic bazaar a &nbsp; little while ago in the Isle of Man. &nbsp; In doing so he made a speech, in which he &nbsp; announced himself as belonging to "the Big &nbsp; Church—the Church outside the Churches," say- &nbsp; ing also that "of all Churches the Catholic &nbsp; Church was the Church of the poor," and speak- &nbsp; ing of the Pope as "his Holiness" and "the Holy &nbsp; Father." &nbsp; These were gr...
DOCTORS AND CANVASSING. 2000 MEDICAL MEN AFFECTED BY A TEST CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
DOCTORS AND CANVASSING. &nbsp; &nbsp; 2000 MEDICAL MEN AFFECTED BY &nbsp; A TEST CASE. &nbsp; The General Medical Council, sitting in session &nbsp; at its London offices the other day, completed &nbsp; its consideration of a case in which Dr. Robert &nbsp; Rendall was charged with certain breaches of &nbsp; medical etiquette. &nbsp; It was a test case, and was of such importance &nbsp; that Dr. Rendall was represented by Mr. Law- &nbsp; son Walton, K.C., M.P., and Mr. C. Mathews, and it was stated that no fewer than 2000 medical &nbsp; men will be affected by the result. &nbsp; Dr. Rendall is the medical officer at Great &nbsp; Yarmouth of the Liverpool Victoria Legal &nbsp; Friendly Society, which in the charge is said to &nbsp; be "a society which systematically practises &nbsp; canvassing for the purpose of procuring &nbsp; patients." Dr...
STRENUOUS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
STRENUOUS LIFE. He hurries in the morning—gulps his coffee down and flies; He runs as if his freedom were at stake; There's a straining of his muscles, a wild look is in his eyes— He must hurry or there's something that'll break. Through the day he wildly hurries while the se- conds trickle past; With bulging veins he rushes here and there, As if he feared each moment that arrived would be his last— Too busy to notice that the day is fair. At last he hurries homeward—ah, but not to welcome rest! He gulps his dinner down with all his might, And feverishly hurries from the table to get dressed For the hurry and the bustle of the night. Oh, he hurries in the morning and he hurries through the day, And he misses much that might inspire men; He hurries till they leave him in his grave and rush away, And hurry to forget about him then. —"Toledo Bee."
APPROVES OF SCENT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
APPROVES OF SCENT. &nbsp; A medical writer champions the cause of those &nbsp; who use scent, contending that by having their handkerchiefs saturated with perfume they may, by thus destroying germs and checking the dis- &nbsp; tribution of infection, be doing good not only to &nbsp; themselves, but to those around. &nbsp;
FLYING MACHINES. SIR HIRAM MAXIM ON THE IMITATION OF NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
FLYING MACHINES. &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR HIRAM MAXIM ON THE &nbsp; IMITATION OF NATURE. &nbsp; At a meeting of the Aeronautical Society, held a month ago in London, several papers were read &nbsp; on what is at present an absorbing topic. &nbsp; Sir Hiram S. Maxim, in a paper entitled &nbsp; "Aerial Navigation by Bodies heavier than the &nbsp; Air," said that as far as balloons were con- &nbsp; cerned he did not think it would be possible &nbsp; further to improve upon what M. Santos Dumont &nbsp; had accomplished. On the other hand, those &nbsp; who sought to navigate the air with machines heavier than the air had not even made a start as yet, and the possibilities before them were &nbsp; very great indeed. &nbsp; All Nature's flying machines were heavier than &nbsp; the air, and depended entirely upon the devel- &nbsp; opment of dynamic energy. Petroleum motors...
THE HEATING OF ACCUMULATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
THE HEATING OF ACCUMULATORS. &nbsp; A most important series of experiments have lately been published in Germany on the above subject. It had been known for some time that the output of accumulators varied with the tem- perature, but it has now been placed on record that accumulators—at any rate, those of the type which were tested—have their output increased by about 50 per cent, when heated from 14 degrees C. to 45 degrees C. (equivalent to about 57 and 113 Fahr.). That is, if they are charged at the lower temperature and discharged at the higher, 50 per ccnt. more energy can be taken out than was put in. This can only be accounted for by the fact that the heat energy applied to raise the temperature is converted into electrical energy, a step in the direction of what has been sought after for so long, namely, the direct conversion of the energy stored in coal into electrical energy, without the intermediate steps of steam and mechanical energy.
A SOLID GOLD CRADLE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
A SOLID GOLD CRADLE. The "Jeweller" says the King of Sweden has offered £500 to the finder of a cradle with a curious history. In 1720 a German Prince sent to Queen Ulrica Eleanora, of Sweden, a cradle of solid gold as a christening present for her child. The ship containing the present was driven by a terrible gale on the shores of the Island of Tjorn, where it became a total wreck. The inhabitants of the island massacred the shipwrecked mariners and pillaged the ship, but the cradle, by a curious chain of circumstances, was saved, and now lies buried in a lonely part of the island. The story having been by some means revived, the King is now offering the aforesaid reward.
NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP OF NOTTINGHAM. A POPULAR APPOINTMENT. FATHER BRINDLE, THE SOLDIERS' IDOL. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
NEW ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP OF NOTTINGHAM. A POPULAR APPOINTMENT. FATHER BRINDLE, THE SOLDIERS' IDOL. The announcement that the Pope has appointed Bishop Brindle, D.S.O., to the see of Not- tingham, rendered vacant by the death of Bishop Bagshawe, will (says "Free Lance") be received with great appreciation by thousands of old sol- diers, both Catholic and otherwise, who served with "Brindle of the Soudan" in any of the later Egyptian campaigns. Father Brindle, as "Tommy" still calls him, in spite of the fact that he was elevated to a titular bishopric some two or three years ago, accompanied the British forces as Roman Catholic chaplain in no fewer that six campaigns against the Dervishes, and he was mentioned in de- spatches in every one, which is a record. He first became an army chaplain in 1874, and he served with every expedition between 1884 and the final campaign in 1898, when Kitchener conquered the Mahdi once and for all. Father Brindle won his way into "Tommy's" heart by hi...
J. L. TOOLE AND THE KING. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
J. L. TOOLE AND THE KING. &nbsp; &nbsp; There is a curious story of King Edward &nbsp; which nobody seems to have recalled, as some- body ought to have done, apropos of the visit of &nbsp; Mr. Dan Leno to Sandringham. Probably Mr. &nbsp; Toole would remember it. King Edward, who &nbsp; was then Prince of Wales, had "commanded" &nbsp; Mr. Toole to "surprise" the Princess of Wales &nbsp; at Sandringham, and when the actor's agent ap- peared at Sandringham to make arrangements &nbsp; for the visit the Prince explained that he wished &nbsp; to keep the matter a profound secret until the &nbsp; last moment. "To enable you to do so," said &nbsp; the Prince, "I shall introduce you as the Spanish &nbsp; Ambassador!" "But I can't speak Spanish, sir!" &nbsp; exclaimed the frightened agent, and the Prince put him at his ease by at once saying: "Nor &nbsp; can they, so your di...
GREAT MEN'S DESCENDANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
GREAT MEN'S DESCENDANTS. &nbsp; There is not now a living descendant in the male line of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Spenser, Milton, Cowley, Butler, Dryden, Pope, Cowper, Goldsmith, Byron, or Moore; not one of Sir Philip Sidney, nor of Sir Walter Raleigh; not one of Drake, Cromwell, Hampden, Monk, Marl- borough, Peterborough, or Nelson; not one of Bolingbroke, Walpole, Chatham, Pitt, Fox, Burke, Grattan, or Canning; not one of Bacon, Locke, Newton, or Davy; not one of Hume, Gib- bon, or Macaulay; not one of Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds, or Sir Thomas Lawrence; not one of David Garrick, John Kemble, or Edward Kean.
GENERAL LEW WALLACE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
GENERAL LEW WALLACE. &nbsp; ''I had an opportunity the other day," writes an American correspondent to the "Free Lance," "of a short talk with General Wallace, the celebrated author of 'Ben Hur.' He is one of the handsomest old men I ever saw, with a snow-white beard and moustache, and large, gentle-looking eyes, ra- ther shaggy eyebrows, and a beautifully-shap- ed, almost straight fore- head; a most noble and refined face, with not much of the military about it. "Yet he has seen hot fighting both in Mexico and the Civil War. What struck me in my brief conversation with the General was the ex- tremely religious tone of his mind. "He told me that he had for years refused his consent to the dramati- &nbsp; sation of his novel, 'be- &nbsp; cause,' he said, 'I didn't see how it could be made into a play without the blasphemy of intro- &nbsp; ducing our Saviour on the stage. &nbsp; " 'The drama, however, I have sanctioned, &nbsp; and which ...
ENGLAND'S CHOICE. NAVAL SUPREMACY OR ANNIHILATION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
ENGLAND'S CHOICE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; NAVAL SUPREMACY OR ANNIHILA- TION. Lord Dufferin, speaking at Edinburgh Univer- &nbsp; sity recently, in reference to England's command of the seas, said:—"The necessity for maintain- ing our naval supremacy was the one axiom to which men of all parties subscribed. Different opinions prevailed as to the desirability of main- taining a fairly large and efficient army, but everyone knew that the possession of an in- vincible fleet and the absolute command of our seas was the only safeguard against our becoming the prey of all over-jealous neighbors. Neither a sense of justice, nor the precepts of religion, nor the instincts of humanity, would deter any one of them from taking advantage of the first op- portunity to destroy our Empire, to annihilate our commerce, to starve us into submission, to in- vade our shores, and to ruin us by the most merciless exactions. In short, our fleet was the one thing ...
IN A WHEAT HOSPITAL. WHERE AILING CORN IS DOCTORED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
IN A WHEAT HOSPITAL WHERE AILING CORN IS DOCTORED. &nbsp; There are some hospitals in the world whose patients are grains of wheat. One is situate at the town of Port Arthur, in Ontario, Canada. In this hospital sick wheat-grains are cured of their ailments, and restored to health and use- fulness. There are many diseases to which the wheat is subject. Some attack the stalk of the growing wheat, some appear on the ma- tured grain. Sometimes the wheat will be covered with a dark smut, which renders it wholly unfit for food. Sometimes the smut, or bunt, will be of a different character, and has a peculiarly offensive odor. It is the business of this hospital to take wheat which has been attacked by any of these diseases, but which is not injured so that the kernel may not be reclaimed, and fit them for the miller. One hundred and ninety-five tons of "pa- tient" can be handled per hour in this hospital. Last year two million bushels of diseased wheat passed through the doctors'...
THE ELECTROCUTION OF CZOLGOSZ. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902
THE ELECTROCUTION OF &nbsp; CZOLGOSZ. From an account of the execution of Czolgosz contributed by an eye-witness to an American paper, it appears that two electrical contacts were made, occupying in all one minute and five se- conds. It was conceded by all the witnesses, we are told, that conscious life was absolutely &nbsp; destroyed the instant the first contact was made. The poles had been connected with the head and leg, and the moment the circuit was completed by the turning of the switch the body was thrown into a state of extreme rigidity, every fibre of the muscular system appearing to be held in a marked condition of tonic spasm. At the same time consciousness, sensation, and motion were &nbsp; apparently absolutely abolished. How under these circumstances the spectators arrived at any conclusion as to the state of con- sciousness of the victim we do not know. We have no doubt it was so. But it is quite clear that when all the muscles, the sole means...
