LADIES' GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
LADIES' GOSSIP. The Queen takes the greatest interest in chess, and plays it even now better than any one of her family with the single exception of the Empress Frederick. It is said that character can be told by a woman's hair ; that the lighter the hair the more sensitive or ' touchy* the nature, while jealousy and treachery lurk in the breast of her whose tresses are dull of texture and black of color. A lady prompter has been engaged at a leading London theatre. The innovation is likely to be followed (says a eentempoi-ary) as a woman's voice is more distinct and carries further than a man's, while not so audible to those in front of the curtain. A babe is a mother's anchor, she cannot swim far from her moorings ; and yet a true mother never lives so little in the present as when by the side of the cradle ; her thoughts follow the imagined future of her child ; that babe is the boldest of pilots, and guides her fearless thoughts down through scenes of coming years. A short while...

The meeting was heralded as a 'Methodist Union dewonstra - fcion/' What has it demonstrated 1 First, that Methodist union, so called (the term is a misnomer for amalgamation), does not excite sufficient interest in the Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist, and Bible Christian churches combined to draw together on a -great 'historic' occasion a congregation suffi cient to fill Pirie-street church. Extraordinary efforts were made to secure a crowd. The anniversary celebration of old Pirie-street, with all its hallowed a...

WHAT EMPEROR WAS THIS? [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
WHAT- EMPEROR WAS THIS S He was one of the greatest monarchs thafi ever ruled in Europe. He was always at war, yet— but wait ; let us take one thing at a time. He was an enormous eater. Ho breakfasted at 5 on a fowl seethed in milk and dressed with sugar and spices. After this he went to sleep again. He dined at 12, always partaking of 20 dishes. He supped twice— first early in tho evening and again about 1' o'clock, the latter the most solid meal of the four. After meat no ate a great quantity of pastry and sweets, washing them down 'with vast draughts ot beer and wine. Then he would gorge himself on sardine omelettes, fried sausages, eel pies, pickled partridges, fat capons, &c., &c. Finally ho abdicated, did this omnivorous Emperor, and a friendly courtier thus de scribed the power that compelled him to do its. Tis a most truculent executioner,' said the orator ; ' it invades tho whole body from head to foot. It contracts the nerves with anguish ; it freezes the m...

[?] THE PRESENT TIME. FBv Bishop Abthuk Cleveland Coxe.1 We are living, we are dwelling in a grand and awful time; In an age on ages telling, to be li ving is sub lime. Hark ! the waking up of nations, Gog and Magog to the fray, Hark 1 what soundeth? 'Tib creation groan ing for its latter day. Will ye play, then, will ye dally, with your music and your wine?

THE VANITY OF SELFISHNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
THE VANITY OF SELFISHNESS. [By Rev. Dr. W. H. Milburn, Chaplain to the United States Senate.] 'Vanity of vanities, eaith the preacher; all is vanity.' — Ecclesiastes. The book from which this text is taken is for some reasons the hardest of all Holy Scripture: rightly to read and understand. It has beetf^, stumbling-block in the way of many readers. You are to understand that it is ' an autobiography, the story of a human me, Ui rcuuru ui uuiuttii uiiuiiaui/er. But it is an autobiography in book form ; different from other world books of tho same kind, such as the con fessions of Augustine or Rousseau and other men that have taken the world into their con fidence by their self-revelation. It is philosophic ; it is introspective ; it deals with the interior life rather than with the external circumstances. You are able to lay your finger upon this man's pulse and feel its beat. You are able as you read the book to look into the very inmost of his life and see the face of his experien...

TWO DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
Two Deeaiis. Two dreams came down to earth one night ; From the realm of mist and dew ; One was a dream of the old, old days, And one was a dream of the new. One was a dream of shady lane ?r That.led to the pickeral pond, Where the willows and rushes bowed them selves To the brown old hills beyond. And the people that peopled the old time dream Were pleasant and fair to see, And the dreamer he walked with them again As often of old walked be. Oh, cool was the wind in the shady lane That tangled his curly hair ! Oh, sweet was the music the robins made To the spring-time everywhere. Was it the dew the dream had brought From yonder midnight skies ; Or was it the tears from the dear, dear years ' That lay in the dreamer's eyes ? The other dream ran fast and free As the moon benignly shed Her golden grace on the shining face In the little -trundle bed. For 'twas a dream of the busy world, Of the glorious noon of day— . Of the summor that follows the careless spring ._..' When the child i...
