CYCLING AND CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 18 January 1902

CYCLING AND CONSUMPTION.   Our cycling friends should remember that there is such a thing as overtraining in that excellent exercise as in others. The severe strain that is borne by professional athletes is very apt to be followed by collapse sooner or later. It is   noticeable how frequently the collapse is accom-   panied by the development of tuberculosis. Over   development of a part of the structures of the body is a source of weakness rather than strength. The "bicycle heart" is a marked instance of this fact. The heart increases in size and power be- cause of the demand thrown upon it by the pro- longed and violent exercise. The tendency of this, as of all other abnormal conditions, is to shorten life. Printed and Published by WATKIN WYNNE, at Bon Accord-avenue, Waverley, at the Office of THE WORLD'S NEWS, 117 King-street, Sydney, in the State of New South Wales.

The Strongest Animal FOR ITS SIZE ON EARTH. THE FINE POINTS OF A BULLDOG. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

I The Strongest Animal | FOR ITS SIZE ON EARTH. i * THE FINE POINTS OP A BULLDOG. In point of strength, tenacity, and endurance, no animal (n the world can compare, size for size, with a well-set-up bulldog. Its fighting quali ties are, of course, proverbial. Most people, however, only know its exploits from the 'pic tures in tbe comic papers. Anyone who will take tbe trouble to examine the peculiar equip ment of one o1 these powerful little engines ■will end by having a greatly increased respect lor its qualities. The enormous strength of the bulldog Ilea not so much in the size of its muscles as in their arrangement. Tears of careful breeding have developed great layers of muscle* where they may be used to the best possible bulldog advan tage. Compared with most doge, a bulldog may be said to be deformed. The head, shoulders, and forelegs have been developed at the expense of the rest of the body so far as symmetry is con cerned. It -would almost seem that the breeders Lad gone ou...

A FIJI GIRL'S TROUSSEAU. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

A FIJI GIBL'S TROUSSEAU. i To the all-important question of bridal trous i »eau the Fiji belle of three decades ago gave little 1 thought A fringe of hibiscus fibre about the loins, supplemented by garlands of bright-hued flowers about the head, neck, and arm*, fulfilled all the requirements of Polynesian fashion. Then came a day when this primitive simplicity was succeeded on festal occasions by an oppressive weight of magnificence. Bride and bridegroom alike were literally swathed from head to foot. The material used was the "tapa," or native cloth, made from the inner bark of the paper mulberry tree. As in those days certain colors and decorative designs were reserved for title aristocracy, an educated onlooker could by a single glance determine the social status of the matrimonial candidates. The tapa, besides being rolled about the body in so many folds that the victim was simply a walking bale of stuff, was also so arranged that a huge pannier was formed of the various loops a...

TELLING A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

TELLING A WOMAN. "You can always tell a woman's financial status by her coat linings," says a bright girl. "She may have, to all appearances, the smartest of tailor-made coats, it may have the trade mark of a fashionable tailor in every seam, apparently, and you will murmur to yourself that it did not cost less than 85 dollars in. good hard cash—that hs, if you don't know. The lining will give the whole thing away. It is in the handsome bro cades of the interior that the smart tailor runs in some of the money you have to pay for a simple but irreproachable little coat. Catch a glimpse of an ordinary lining, and you may guess that the coat was ready made, and perhaps bought at a mark-down sale."

A WAY THEY HAVE IN RUSSIA. NOVELIST SPIRITED AWAT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

A WAY THEY HAVE IN RUSSIA. NOVELIST SPIRITED AWAT. The celebrated author. M. Maxime Gorslcy, is becoming more and more popular in Russia. Plays founded on his romances are now being played at the theatres of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and the authorities seem to be ap prehensive that his literary influence will soon become greater, and. from the Governmental point of view, more harmful than that of Count Tolstoi. Having learned that the novelist, who had already been ordered to leave St. Petersburg for Nijni Novgorod, was about to betake himself to Moscow, recently, where an ovation on his arrival had been arranged by his admirers-* students, for the most part—the authorities sent ■otae gendarmes to an intermediate station, with orders to uncouple the coach in which M. Gorsky waa travelling. M. Gorsky's carriage was. tt is related, attached to another engine and taken off la the direction of the Cau casus.

To Conquer America. S ' ,, . A GERMAN PLAN. —♦—. J Could Germany conquer the United States? ) Lieutenant von Edelsheim, second regiment of ) Uhl&ns of the German Imperial Guard, thinks ) she. could if site followed the plan which he has ( foimulated. War against the United States would be car ried on under conditions necessarily different from those of a German cam paign against England. In recent years, says Lieutenant Edelsheim, Germany ha® kad sev eral occasion* of poli tical difficulties with the United States, for the most part arising out of commercial Questions. . Until the present time these difficulties have been smoothed over by concessions on the part of the Germane. But since there is a limit to concessions we may aek what powerful means Germany caiw make use of, if need arise, to check the ac tion of the United States against her interests; in other words, to impose her will on them by force. Now, Germany's first element of power is her navy. It has every prospe...

ONE FOR GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

OXE FOR GREAT BRITAIN. It is related, of cheery, genial Sir William White, who has just retired from the post of Assistant Comptroller of the Navy, that he once took up an American paper, and in it found a lengthy account of the launching of a new war ship. The writer evidently could not resist the temptation of crowing over all the world at the close of his article; Great Britain was mainly apostrophised. "Now why," the writer remon strated, "can't you advance like America in war- , bhip designing and building? Just tbink of this , young nation being far ahead of you! It is a dis- ( grace to Great Britain. This, .our latest ship, , shows that we are ahead of the world." "This ! sort of thing," remarked Sir William quietly, S "rather amused me, because I designed thafe j •hip^' - i

FIJI COOLIES. AND THEIR LITTLE WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

FIJI COOLIES. AND TEEIR LITTLE WAYS. The Indian coolies of Fiji as a class are not over desirable. The latest episode illustrative of this fact occurred at Navua. Intelligence from that district is to the effect that a mur derous assault was committed on Saturday morning, December 29, by a free Indian upon his wife, with a weeding; hoe, inflicting two very severe wounds in the head, rendering her in&ensible. and necessitating her immediate re moval to the hospital at Tamanua.'Vhere her wounds were attended to by the hospital at tendant, pending the arrival of medical assist ance. According to the issue of the "Fiji Times" of January 1, the assault appears to have been en tirely unprovoked, and followed upon a mutual separation between the two. which took place some two or three months ago. The assault took place in the presence of several other Indians, and one Bechai, though warned not to go near the scoundrel, pluckily went to arrest him, and nearly had his head knocked in...
