FURNISHING A PRIVATE PALACE. HOW TWENTY THOUSAND POUNDS MAY BE SPENT UPON ONE ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
FURNISHING A PRIVATE PALACE. BOW TWENTY THOUSAND POUNDS MAY BE SPENT UPON ONE BOOM. The recent sale of Battle Abbey for £20,000— a figure at which the property Is considered al most ruinously cheap—gives some small idea of the vast sums that may be expended on one's domicile. Eaton Hall, the Ouke of Westminster's' Cheshire seat, cost the late holder of the title considerably over a million sterling to build, and probably even this figure would go only a very small way towards purchasing any one of some score of L&lt;oiidon houses as they stand. Perhaps none /of these places strike the visitor with a vivid sense of their wealth more than do Spencer House, in Arlington-street, and Norfolk | House, in St. James'-square. Stafford House, St. James' Palace, the largest of them by far, con- ' tains probably more money's worth than any 1 of the others, but is not so lavishly decorated. 1 One may discover that for a single sideboard, ; without any history or age to enhance its value,...
WITH A PROVISO. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
WITH A PROVISO. —♦— / In the recent precautions of the London School Board against small-pox, many amusing: inci dents occurred.**Papers were sent to the various schools announcing that a doctor would go round to examine the arms of the scholars, and, if necessary, to advise the parents to have their children vaccinated. In case the parents ob jected to the examination, an objection form was affixed to the paper, which the parents could sign. Many thought that the children were going to be vaccinated, and others had very curious ideas. One mother wrote on the form:— "I have no objection to my child being vac cinated, but please call him 'John.' " She had confused vaccination with christen ing!
A REMARKABLE DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
, A REMARKABLE DINNER. &lt; 1 ! A remarkable dinner was that in honor of the woman who had charge of the Porto Rico exhibit at the Pan-American Exposition. It was served to 10 people at a cost of 100 dollars a plate. One of the dishes—bar&ch a la pottonaise—was the Polish national soup, a dish that takes six days to prepare. Much of that time is consumed in making reedy the stock. This is done by fer menting the juice of red beets, which gives the rich crimson tint to the finished soup. Into this is introduced the following extraordinary com bination:—Fresh pork, Frankfurter sausages, knuckles of voal, beef, ducks, cabbages, mush rooms, carrots, etc. Another and decidedly new dish alt this dinner —crosnes du Japon sautes au beurre—was made from a new tuber imported from. France, but originally grown in Japan. This somewhat re sembles the oyster plant in appearance, and in flavor suggests both celery and artichokes. Fil lets of young bear and a salade Romaine et coers...
A Case of See-Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
A Case of See-Sickness. (BY DICK SWIVEL-EYE.) There was no fog when the North Sydney ferry steamer left Milaon's Point on a perilous voyage to Circular Quay. They call it Circular Quay bi eatifce it isn't circular, and it isn't a quay. It Rao a clear morning. It was therefore a good deal lew dangerous than it might have been if it had been more dan gerous than it was. "It seems to me," said Mr. Mugwump, the bil ious accountant of the Redtape Department, "it seems to me that our Government are making at^scs of themselves. "That," said his niece. Miss Polly Sillybelle, "would be a work of supererogation." "Super how much?" asked her uncle, in the acccnts of one anxious to learn. "1 should be glad, uncle," responded the damsel, "if you would make some effort to master the idiosyncrasies of your mother tongue." "1 mean," said Mr. Mugwump, "that it is most ibsurd of the Harbor Trust Commissioners to allow the German boats to berth on the left side 3f the Quay, while the French steamers b...

Notable Places. OLD GOVERNMENT HOUSE* PARRAMATTA. v &lt; THE " ASTBONOMEB GOVEBNOB." ( &lt; LADY GIPPS' BOWER. &lt; t Placed in a commanding situation in the ( old historic town of Parramatta, the vice- j regal residence of the early Governors j possesses a most interesting and romantic &lt;j history. &lt; Governor Phillip greeted a small cottage : on the site of the present cdiflce in the very / earliest times. This 4 was added to and en- • larged by Hunter, but Lachlan Macquarie, that "indefatigable builder," was respon sible for the large and commodious mansion which Is practically little altered since his day. During his fre quent journeyings into the interior he made great use of the old building, and divided a goodly portion of his time between it and the vice-regal resi dence at Windsor, il- • lustrated in "T h e World's News" of De cember 28. The history "of the vice-regal residence at Parramatta is closely ^ associated with most of th...

Ship has been coaling. Small boy of very dirty habits refuses to wash himself or his clothing afterwards, although every opportunity is given, nay, pressed upon him.

First Lord receives a letter complaining of treatment of small boy. First Lord very indig nant, and makes telegraphic inquiry. On receipt of reply, First Lord instructs clerk to write, saying that small boy's case much exag gerated. Small boy was caned, it is true, and w*s Elightly brushed round his ankles, which were "Darticjilarly dirty," but he was not "scrubbed on any other part of the body." Thus it is that Young England, as represented In our Navy, is looked after, and ...
BARMAIDS IN CALCUTTA. THEIR SERVICES PROHIBITED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
\ BARMAIDS IN CALCUTTA. &lt; ) THEIR SERVICES PROHIBITED. ? The Bengal Government have discovered that the introduction of barmaids to the saloons of Calcutta is lowering the prestige of the white race in the eyes of the natives, who are horrified to see white women employed in a trade which they view with abhorrence. The Governor hae therefore issued an edict or dering that barmaids shall be prohibited after April 1, 1902. Accordingly, the Board of Revenue have decided that the following condition shall be inserted in every hotel license issued in Ben gal, whether held by Europeans or natives:— "That in the place for which this license fas gran ted no female shall be employed in connection with the sale of imported wines or spirituous or fermented liquors in any capacity whatso ever."

A FIJIAN MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
A FIJIAN MURDERER. f The "Fiji Times" of December 28 states that ( the attention of the Supreme Court, in it» crimi ( nal jurisdiction, was occupied during the whole ( of the previous week in hearing a charge of mur ( der against a Fijian youth, named Alapati, aged ( 20 years, for killing one of two Indian hawkers i on July 20, at Sava Sava, Vanua Leva. ( More than ueual interest attached to the case, r as the accused had been tried for the murder of / the second Indian at the last assizes, and had ) then been found not-guilty. ) As the result of investigations by Sergeant ) O.oaatray, Alapati was charged with perpetrating ) the double murder. He was arrested, aud being i brought up before the local magistrate, was com } mi tied to take his trial at the next assizes. S A long array of witnesses, numbering about 27, ( gave evidence as to the movements of the prisoner ( about the time of the double murder, and this ^ evidence sheeted home the crime. Accused was c found guilty, and was...
A NEW HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
A NEW HORSE. « Most readers know that the natural history books teach us that there is but one true species of horse, the Equus caballus of the zoologist. This creature, found wild in Central Asia, was believed to represent the only surviving species of a family circle whereof the ass and zebra are also representatives. It appears, however, fthat we shall require to revise our ideas regard ing the horse-species, for the Duke of Bedford has imported 12 colts froih Mongolia of Prze walski's horse, a form known for at least 20 years, and discovered by the colonel whose came it bears. At Woburn Abbey the colts are seen to be of the size of ponies. Mr. Lyd rieker, describing the animals, says that they represent a distinct species, and not a mere hybrid or crossbred between the horse and some allied form. There was a wild horse of the Kirghiz steppe called the Tarpan. It is now extinct, but its leanings, it is said, were nearer to the existing and ordinary wild horse than to the Przewals...
The Growth of a Child. SOME IMPORTANT POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
The Growth of i Child.: SOME IMPORTANT POINTS. In a recent lecture on "The Hygiene of Child hood," delivered at the Boston School of House keeping, Dr. G. W. Fitz gave come interesting facts respecting abnormalities In infants which will be of interest to mothers everywhere. Even at birth, the lecturer said, a strong child can support its own weight by grasping the finger of an adult. This is a te^t that is well to apply at once, and also "to keep applying. This great strength in so small a body is natural, but it is apt to diminish, as weeks go on, "by* the civilising process. By repeating this instructive method one can measure the grip of the forearm and determine much regarding a child's resisting power. As a child continues to grow It should some times be laid on a table face downward, its feet held in someone's hand, and the body carefully raised. The back of a normal child will then arch. Many children are prone to spinal troubles, end this little exercise will determine if a...
BIRDS AS SURGEONS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
BIRDS AS SURGEONS. There are not a few birds that possess a know ledge of the principles of surgery that is not far ■ from supernatural. The manner in which they endeavor to aid nature is very interesting. The woodcock and the partridge, for instance, are able to dress their wounds with considerable skill. , A famous naturalist says that on several oc casions he has killed woodcock that were! w'Hen shot, convalescing from wounds previously re ceived. In every instance he found the old ■injury neatly , dressed with down plucked from the stem of ' feathers, and sktyfully arranged over the wound, evidently by the long beak of the bird. In some Instances a solid plaster was thus formed, and in others ligatures had been applied to wounded or broken limbs. One day- hte killed a bird' that evidently had been severely wounded at some" recent period. The wound was covered and protected by a sort of network of feathers, which had been plucked by the bird from its own body, and so arranged as ...
MELODY FROM STONES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
MELODY PROM STONES. —— There is in existence a wonderful piano, the notes of which are given forth by flints arranged in a regular scale. Its tones are of remarkable Quality. Mozart dreamed of an orchestra *of stones for the "Magic Flute." If the patience and skill of the flint piano's creator and owner could be carried to further lengths, it is not impossible that such an orchestra could be forthcoming. By accident, while taking a country walk one day, the iQventor picked up a flint, and, chancing to strike it. heard- a faint note respond to the blow. The idea took hold of him to gather, if possible, enough flints to form a complete chro matic scale. Difficulties in the search for such stones only increased his ardor. For more than thirty years he pursued the quest, making it the principal aim of his life to form out of a collec tion of flints the instrument which he "called the "geological piano." Advanced in years, he now passes his leisure ir&lt; playing on this curious ...

i A Ride in a "Barrel Flyer." This queer-looking machine is the latest invention of th&lt; switchback sort. In travelling over the track th« inner part of the barrel sways gently to and fro, only the other part of it revolving. Those who cater for the public amusement are ever on the look out for novelties; and assuredly the "Barrel Flyer," as the latest invention of :he switchback sort is called, is a distinct novelty. \ It lias been tried with, great success abroad, \ but has Dot so far been introduced into Great S Britain, though It is highly probable that it will ) be seen at some of the big exhibitions nest year, / for the officials at Earl's Court and elsewhere are ) exceedingly anxious to signalise Coronation year ) by the introduction of new and strikingly original ) features. ) Wherever It has been tried the "barrel flyer" S has been a great draw, and money has poured into \ the coffers of the promoters in great quantities; \ nor is the reason far to seek, for it pr...

THE FIRST TYPEWRITER. • HOW IT WAS MODELLED. ( The model department of the United States i Patent Office in Washington Is illuminated here ) and there with the original models of the very J great inventions. ) In one of tbe cabinets is to be seen Morse's ) original model of the telegraph instrument, ? fashioned by his own hands. The model is very ( crudely made, but it inspires reverence in the ( visitor, and even a certain sort of awe, when ( he pauses to think of what the telegraph has ( done for the advancement of the world, and ) what a slow universe this would be if we did ) not have telegraphic communication with our ; fellow-beings the world over. ) In another cabinet, inspiring the same sort ) of reverence, and bringing thoughts of the days ) when every bit of sewing in the world was done ) by hand, is Ellas Howe's model of the sewing ( machine. The visitor unconsciously repeats to ( himself the words of the song of the shirt, c "Stitch, Stitch, Stitch," and thinks of the ag...
