HOW LIGHT TRAVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
HOW LIGHT TRAVELS. Light, as a traveller, in point of rapidity is only rivalled by electricity, its speed being so vast that it IR only when we have to deal -with the enormous distanoe stretohiDg be- tween us and our finn, and the far greater ones between our system and the myriad others whioh dot our skies with the fixed stars, that appreciable periods of tho time oome in play. A rey of fight sent to us from our sus, for instance, traverse» the inter- vening space of some 05,000,000 miles in about eight minutes-that is, at the rato of over 180,000 miles per second, so that about one* eighth of a single second will suffice to flash a sunbeam right round the world if a series of mirrors could be arranged to reflect it from point to poitit ou its surface. Thia enormous spead appoars still more wocderful when we oonsidnr that light makes itn way through spaoe by means of waves, so that thc ray, by pursuing a wavy line instead of a perfectly straight ono, really travels muoh farther, an...
ROYALTY AND THEIR PEARLS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
ROYALTY AND THEIR PEARLS. Perhaps the most famous of pearl neck- laces is that of tho Queen of Italy, whioh is said not to have an equal in the world. It is'a nt okla JO in whioh are woven together all sorts of tender memories, and therefore it is greatly treasured by its owner, apart from its intrinsic) valuo and boauty. Margarita being tho Greek for pearl, au offering of those gems to his fiauooo seemed very ap» propriate of King Humber';, then Prince of Naples, and he gavo to hor a single string of pearls, eaoh the size of a hedge-sparrow's egg. Sinoe th a* timo tho King has at every birthday of his bolovod consort given hor another string of pearls, eaoh one being a little larger than the last, so that now the later strings reaoh to far below her Majooty'e waist.
WHO INVENTED FELT? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
WHO INVENTED PELT? That ia a question that even Professor Beckman could hardly answer, though we have it on his authority that felt was long; used beforo the invention of woven cloth. Felt is still the principal material for clothing; and for tenting? among tho Tartars of Central Asia, whoso modes of lifo havo continued unchanged from remote antiquity. Perhaps felt, striotly speaking, was not. invented by anyone; The nada on a fleece are but felt of Nature's ma Icing, so that felt making was hardly an original invention on the part of man, hat rather the adaptation and the ? improvement of a natural process to his own . requirements.
VARIETIES. THE WRETCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
THE WRETCHES. A new nae for returned engagement rings has been found by a certain young man. He recently entered a jeweller's shop, and. after purchasing a ring for his intended, produoed an old engagement ling. Ex- plaining that tho former engagement was off, he asked that the old ring should be taken in part payment for tho new one. Another youth called at the jeweller's beforehand and explained that he was going ' to purchase a ring, saying, 1 I will bring the ? lady at two o'olook ; dou' fc show her any- thing over 60s. in value, as that's all the money I've got.'
SEASONABLE DISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
SEASONABLE DISHES. Fillets of beef with ououmber make a very good entree. Fillets from the undercut are best ; they should be an inch thiok and about two inobes square. Trim them neatly, as the trimmings will come in for a pudding or stow. Fry the fillets in boiling dripping, turning them every few seconds, until brown. Put t^em in a stowpan ; to a tablespoonful of the fat in which they have bean fried add a spoonful of flour, ono of saune, a dust of cayenne pepper, a pinch of dried sage, and half a pint of stock. Stir this over the fire until it boils and thicks, then pour it over tho fillets, cover the stewpan, and place it in the oven to simmer gently while the oucumber is cooked. Pare the latter and slice length- ways into four, cut tho strips aoross into two-inch lengths, then boil in salted water until they are tender ; they will take twenty minutes.

A THEOLOGICAL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
A THEOLOGICAL QUESTION.* Of Bishop Short, who held the See of St. Asaph, many curious stories are told. Oc- casionally he put questions to oandidates for ordination that apparently had no connec- tion with the discharge of the parochial duties. They te?ted, probably, their wit or tact, two necessary qualifications to publio ' men, but nothing more. Oao such question proposed by tho Bishop was the following : -* Whioh has tho greatest number of legs a cat or no oat ?' As might be expected this oreatod a titter, bnt the Bishop would not take a laugh aa the answer, and consequently he repeated the question and desired someone to solve tho problem. At last one of the oandidates, smiling, said: 'I öhould think,, my Lord, a oat.' . No,' retorted the Bishop, . 'there you are wrong, fora oat has four legs and no oat has five.' ,
A BEAUTIFUL QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
A BEAUTIFUL QUEEN. Queen Natalie of Servia ÍB well-known for i her beauty, and she is especially noted for ,r her exquisite neck. Every morning she takes exercise with a pitober on her head, the result of whioh is to strengthen and beautify her neck. She is attended by a maid of honour during her morning walk, but the attendant does not walk with a burden on her head as doeB the , Queen. Other girls who want to improve the shape of their necks would do well to follow this royal lady's example, as not only , . does it tend to beautify the neck, bat also to ^straighten the back, for the head and shoulders mast be held very straight not to let the pitcher fall.

GRAPE VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
GRAPE VINE. The surest way of striking a shoot from a grape vine is to layer it. If 'the shoot is layered now it will be a yoong plant ready to remove in about 12 months. You may strike 'outtings by taking off yoting well ripened shoots a foot or so long with a piece of old wood at the base. Plant the outtings firmly in the ground, leaving only one bud exposed. Muloh and water in dry weather.
PROTECTING FLAT-TOPPED HEDGES [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
PROTECTING FLAT-TOPPED HEDGES Many evergreen and other hedges are trimmed with flat sides and flat tops. If the bedpe is chick, as most evergreen hedges are, tho snows of winter will collect in frreat masses upon the flat tops, the weight in many oases breaking the bushes down, with great injury to the appearance of the hedge. Where one has a beautiful wfall of this sort about his grounds it will pay to take con- siderable pains to preserve ita beauty.

SCIENCE. TO SEAL LETTERS SO THAT THEY CANNOT BE OPENED. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
TO SEAL JLOSTTERS SO THAT THEY CANNOT BB OPENED. Steam or hot water will open envelopes olosed with mucilage and even a wafer ; a hot iron or a spirit lamp dissolves sealing wax, an impression in plaeter having been taken of the seal. By the combined use of wafer and sealing wax, however, &U attempts to open the letter otherwise than by force oan be frustrated. All that is necessary is to close the letter first with a small well moistened wafer, and to pierce the latter with a coarse needle (tho same applies to mucilage), whereupon sealing-wax may be used over in the usual manner. This Beal can neither be opened by dry heat nor of moisture.
PERSONALITIES. ROYAL LADY CYCLISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
ROYAL LADY CYCLISTS. Three Boyal ladies have lately become devotees of the wheel, one of them being the ' Xlmpreas of Russia, who learned to ride while ou a visit to Darmstadt. The PrinoeBS Leopold of Bavaria, daughter of the Emperor Franois Joseph, has taken to cycling on the advice of her physician ; and the Princess Frederio Augnsta of Saxony has lately been learning to cycle for no other reason than that she, likft the rest of the world, has been infected with the all-prevailing wheeling v craze to whioh most of us succumbed long ago.

RESPIRATION. .... ., uar next duty la tbat of investigating the means st our oommand for performing the work of artificial respiration in oases of apparent death from drowning, lu order to understand dearly what is implied in this artificial breathing we must, first of all, asoertain how wo breathe in a natural fashion. It is only when we know what breathing is, regarded aB a natural funotion of tho body, that we can hope dearly to appreciate what we attempt to do in the oase of tho half-drowned man or woman. Breath- ing, or respiration, is that bodily duty whereby we tret rid of so muoh of the waste matters of the body. Those waste matters are the reault of the body's work, and they are poured into the blood from all ' parts of our frames. The blood whioh goes forth from tho left side of the heart pure to nouriuh the body, is returned to tho right Bido of the heart by the veins, and is then pumped by the heart into the lungs. Into the lungs, tho waste matters are given forth from t...

THE BOTTOM PRINCIPLE. .NOTHING " merely happens so."_ Always keep that fact where you can see it. Whatsoever cornea to pass has an adequate canse right behind it. I don't say this aa though it were a new dis coveiy. 'Not a'bit. It is the bottom princi'pleof. nil knowledge. But we are apt to forget it that's the point : we forget it, and so have a lot of trou bte-.there's no need to have. Here is M ¡ss Esther May, whom wo are glad to I hear from, and to know. In the mattera aet forth ! in her short letter 8he speaks, hot for herself only, but for two-thirds of the women in England. " In July,'1890?' she says, ." I had an attack of influenza, which left me in a weak, exhausted condition. I felt languid and tired. Everything was a trouble to me. The good appetite that is natural to me was gone; and when I did take a little food it guve me a d rend ful pain in tho chest. There was also a strange sensation in my stomach. I felt as if I had eaten too much when perhaps I had scarcely cu to...

SHORT STORY. THE LOSS OF THE PHILIP HERBERT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 21 May 1898
. THE LOSS OF THE PHILIP . -\ HERBERT. Ja; is a true remark that Englishmen have forgotten as muoh of their naval history as would make the reputation of a lesser nation; -and there is a oar tain spedthrift grandeur about thia carelessness which of itself bears witnes* eloquently to the vast riohes of our country in past deeds of glory. "We can afford ta neglect the crumbs and remnants, yet it in well occasionally to make sure that we havo not let any deeds slip into oblivion which were better remembered. A tiny volume printed in Paris in 1693, and now growing rare, contains the story of a sea fight whioh weli deserves the fame whioh the oaprice of history has denied it. In. May. 1600, a squadron of six French ships of war, under the command of Duquesne, son of the famous sea oaptain of that name, was lying at Moniila, between the no-hern point of madagascar, and the mainland, when the news oame that an Eng- lish ship was at Au* jouam, a trading station twenty miles away.
