SKETCHES Women of Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

SKETCHES Women of Turkey. (From the 8. F: Chronicle.J It seems to^be quite*the fashion to regard the women -of Turkey as almost universally subjected to the same kind of discipline as were the poor wires of Bluebeard. Often I have been travellers in this land manifest a feeling akin to disappointment when 1 old by an old resident^that much of the commisera tion and sympathy tliey are inclined to be stow so lavishly is wasted; that in their ig norance and child-like simplicity these women count themselves as favoured among their Christian sisters, especially those of the aristocracy, who are so carefully shielded and guarded; while those of the middle and lower classes, instead of being kept under lock and key, are as fres to go and come, and to labour for the support of their lord and master-to be, in short, the real bread-win ner of the whole family-as are those of the same class in some Christian lands. I have even seen thorn, work in the fields, like the peasant women fof Italy o...

A Lone Star Bo-Peep. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

A Lone Star Bo-Peep. BY HOWAED SEELY Day was just breaking on the Chadbourne Trail. The pale mist?, surprised by rosy Aurora, were scampering1 in hurried dishabille across its wavering outline, tearing their trailing night-robes ; upon-the thorny naes quites and scatter lag filmy draperies in its live oak aisles. A few faint stars, through fleecy cloud-rifts, still twinkled tearfully, and but a moment. ago the waning moon, that had languished in. the western heaven, had lain a-pale face upon the eloping shoulder of a great divide and wearily sunk to rest within its sombre bosom. There is a dewy freshness in. the air; a strong damp, earthy odour; then on the wings of a gentle breeze fragrant forerunner of morning-the scent of a thousand wild-flowers, swinging their perfumed censers in worship of the-^eomiag tun. Meanwhile, in the shadowy vistas of the dim shrubbery, vague, indistinct forms seem moving. They flit to and fro with a skulking and stealthy movement; they seem alert, uneas...

Remarkable Presence of Blind. Pat Hoolihan, while elating the roof of one of our highest buildings, lost his footing md fell. Over and over he went until within cwenty-five feet of the pavement, when he struck a telegraphic wire and managed to ^rasp it, first with one hand, then with wth.

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

POPULAR SCIENCE. An English, invention relates to set squares from draughtsmen having1 one of the edges bevelled at various angles. The lowest recorded temperature is 363 degs. below zero; it was produced by vaporising liquid nitrogen under low pressure. The use of steel castings is becoming so extended in England as to alarm the iron founders, who see their prospects for work slipping away from them. The Medical Record says that expired air is optically pure, and contains no microbes. Respiration, therefore, purifies air as far as microbes are concerned. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat thinks that in view of the tremendous strides that electricity is making as a street railway motor we shall travel at a speed of 100 miles an hour within the next ten years. The Electrical Review says medicine can be introduced into the human system by elec tricity. The electrodes of a battery are saturated with the selected remedies, and are applied locally to the skin. Experiments show that there is a...

How to Stay Pretty. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

How to Stay Pretty. Tepid Water is preferable for every season of the year. Milk baths have been in favor from time immemorial with ladies, and nothing is better than a daily hot bath of milk. Mme. Tallien was among the histori cal women who bathed in milk, to which she added crushed strawberries to give it ati agreeable perfume. I have also heard of an old lady of eighty who retained, a girlish complexion like cream and roses by always washing in the juice of crushed strawberries and nothing else. But we can, fortunately, keep oar skins healthy and fair without retwrtmsr to these extreme measures. For the full-length bath, a bag of bran will soften the water and make the skin deliciously smooth and fair; but let me here remark that no bath is perfect in its results without the long and brisk frictions of hands or a coarse towel afterwards. Friction not only stimulates circulation, but it makes the flesh firm and polished, like Parian marble. It is sometimes astonishing to see the c...

The Nerve-Rest Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

The Nerve-Rest Cure. As there are many degrees of nervous ex haustion, so are there many methods of res toration. What would be pleasant exercise to one might prove laborious exertion to another. In all eases, however, complete nerve rest implies the maintenance of agreeable sensation and the avoidance of nervous agila I tion. It may not be p 3risible to obtain such absolute rest as is here indicated, but the aim of treatment is to secure as near an approach to it as can be attained by legitimate means. No means is used which might injurs the general health. The fact that women are more liable than men to'the severer forms of nervou3 exhaus tion is one reason why the cases quoted in these pages are chiefly those of women. Another reason is that, in m^n it is rarely possible to study this stage «f the disease uncomplicated by the effects of alcoholic indulgence. Most men who find themselves becomin^victims of nervousness endeavour to escape the worries of life by taking refuge in dri...

Taming Refractory Horses With Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

Taming Refractory Horses With Elec tricity. The Electrical Review describes some interesting experiments by Professor Harrison (of the Veterinary School of Harvard Oulloge) with, the new electrical device for controlling refractory horses: ' A few days ago a valuable trotting horce, which formerly went tinder the name of Grey Eagle, and which has a record of 2.22, was sent to the 6chool for the treatment of a fractured jaw, which had been the result of attempts to control him. The animal had the habit of taking the bit in his teeth and bolting. Dr. Harrison contrived to connect the bit by two small wires along the reins with a small galvano-faradic battery, which was carried in. the buggy. It was so arranged that the driver could give an electric shock of greater or less intensity to the horse, but ~wliich would not do the anim sl any injury. Dr. Harrison took care to use the contrivance only with the words ' whoa ' and * steady.' The trial was an. iat&eiiate success. The ho...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

CHAPTER II. It was a -week or two later. MsrcL was nearly over; the clouds put on their 'white spring dress, and sailed by happily across skies that were hlae again; the water danced and sparkled in the'sunshine, beat merrily against the gray old stones of the Hard, and rejoice# in the good time coming. "E-rnitffd children appeared, stumbling over the stones, talking vociferously to basket-Iadsn, umbrella . laden, eihawl and wrap and cloak-laden elders. Fine ladies in wide crinolines came tripping daintily by. Lazy young men, with their hands In their pockets, sauntered down with an afar of indifference. The Hard was gay again. ass was the gayest of the gay. She found fands of mirth in every one's every day jokes. She stood in the doorway and took an unflag ging interest in everything that passed around her; raised the laugh against the pleasure seeker who staid to bargain with the boatmen; sent the shaft of satire after the parsimonious who departed; joined volubly in every con ver...

TALE . CASS. CHAPTER I. There hare been, ohang-ee at the Haxd since I860. The boatmen bars easier times and ai« less jovial 5 ths steamers blaster in with «» air of proprietorship, lie and shriek shrilly, take up their cargoes of excursionists and baskets and blaster out again, -with much hauling of ropes, much shouting' and counter ahoutinjr, and oaths tempered to the ears of polite pleasure-parties. In tbo year 1S60 the boatmen watched their rivals jealously, sad ?were eloquent in. the language of abuse. Their rivals have multiplied: the boatman of to-day is gloomy, and has no linger the spirit to rail.

A NORTHERN MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

A NORTHERN MINE. While Adelaide and the Barrier hare been long enjoying a monopoly of mining under takings, it is cheerful to note that what is practically a Port Augusta company, has been floated. Tlie Prince Alfred S. L. and C. Mining Company is in 200 shares of £25 each, 150 of which have been retained by the proprietors, while the remainder hare been taken up. The Provisional Directors, with the exception of Mr .Robinson, of Hammond, are Port Augusta residents, as are also the solicitor and Secretary, and understand that the shares hare bien in great part taken up locally.. The Company will have £1,000 to devoted the development of the mine, assays from which, taken from surface and from various depths to 10ft., have yielded from 8 to 20oz. silver, and from 25 to SO per cent, of lead. Cameton is the nearest rail- - way station to the mine. P. A. Dispatch."

Women of France. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

Women of France. Wm. C. Brownell lectured recently on ' Women of France.' Among the things he said "were: ' Large eyes and fine faoea are as scarce in France as fine forms are abundant. Balzao divides the French women into two classes-the old and young, and the old who attempt to be young. Some day gray hair may become fashionable in France, as it is here, but at present it is very rare. Dye is used in preference. 9 * * Marriage is the greatest aim of the French, and to an extent that an American woman would be ashamed of. There is no place there for the French spinster. Marriage in France is, as it were, the bride's turning-out party. * * * Here female interest in men ceases at marriage, but tho desire to shine socially exists after marriage to a greater extent. Society is thus stimulated by marriage.' - -Baltimore I American.

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 March 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. Oar . winter of 1887-88 records a complete repudiation of the sesthetic and mediaeval styles so long in favor (says a London correspondent of the Sun.) The charming, rumpled, picturesque coquetry of the century of Louis XV. asserts itself everywhere. We find it in tapestries of Beauvais, inlaid marquetry, crystals, rare lacquers, cat crystals, deeply upholsteml low furniture of rose and pink silk; we find it in the mignardise of luxury and art, which took its name from one painter of the grand sieele, and was the delight of the great favorite ~^ho made of the word Pompadour the distin ! guishing brand of the whole epoch. Our library has succumbed to the prevailing influence. The volumes of romance or poetry are clad in old brocade, rich in bouquets of flowers; on our classics we place iron bands, corners, and clasps, over lemon tinted Levantine leather, marke l with a plain black monogram; our serious foreign books are bound in deep red, memoirs and travels in black ...
