What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

7\ - IitAk'icluo - e _ By ROBERT C. Sae t WICKES, • - The initials of Lord Dunnieen's sec- retary are \J. A. G.\ With all this advertising, Paul Kruger would draw well on the stage, John Bull would better look out for the peeling before he steps to hard on the, OrPlage Free State. It is not enough for an actor to act well on the stage. He must also re- frain (torn acting badly off of it. In the matter ofioets 'laureate the century began with a Pye and seems fated to end with a puddinghead. The difference bertveen obstinacy and brianess is In the difference of view- ing it from the outside or the inside. The Ohio State Journal proposes to \turn Mary Elizabeth Lease loose in - . Turkey.\ She would shake the Sultan up. When a man starts in tis drown his troubles he generally acts as if he thought they weep located in his stom- ach. A Buffalo Woman snapped a loaded pistol at her husband \for a joke.\ Yet it is asserted that women liave no sense (if humor. As a matter of courtesy to the protest- ing nations Turkey has, stopped killing Armenians and is now only starving them to death. The English people are not as yet ac- miainted with the American, nation; and what little they know is mostly things that aren't so. Again comes the cheering announce- ment that the Keely motor is practic- ally complete. All it needs now is a little more patience and several more dollars. If war, pestilence, famine or some- thing of the kind doesn't come along to check the growth of the magnetic healer he gives promise of overrunning I he country. An orchestra leader licked the mar- quis of Queensberry's son the other day and the crowning humiliation is that he didn't do it according to the rules so carefully devised by the young' man's tether. Richmond, Ind.. is boasting because it has a couple that have been married e%er seventy-five years. That is noth- ing at all. Chicago has people who have been married half a dozen times in half that time. A Jewish rabbi lecturing from the pulpit of a Methodist church is a very pleasing spectacle. If Moses and John Wesley were living to -day there is no reason for the belief that they would not be friends. Now that Gen. Harrison's engage- ment has been indorsed by the members of the women's clubs in St. Louis the general can go on his way rejoicing heedless of such little things as presi- dential nominations. Buffalo claims to have Niagara's water -power exactly where it wants it now, and invites unlimited Imtnigrar tion on the strength of its new busi- ness boom. Buffalo surely would not &cetera the people and obtain their money on falls pretenses. Chicago and Nees York capitalists heve organized a company with $2,000.. '.'O0 capital for the purpose of develop- ing on a very extensive scale large gold mining properties, covering several thousa ml acres in IiiickIngham county, Va. Investigations of experts, it is ()alined, show that the average of these ores gives even a better percentage of gold than either the South African or the Cripple Creek districts. A circular on the prospects of emi- gration to the British colonies from • CAT'S FACE SHRINKS. A DISEASE WHICH MADE IT LOOK QUEER. Ear. Eye and Jaw Wasted A rrv:t• — belentlffrally Known as Atrophy but In the Case e;f • Feline Almost La- . heard Of. CURIOUS case has attracted the at- tendants of the dog pound and shelter for animals. It is a case of atrophy, or shrinkage away, in a cat formerly liv- ing at the home of te 1 Dr. Derby, on East Fortieth street, says the New York World. When thee cat was brought to the shelter, to be riven away or asphyx- iated, it was a curious sight, looking as the Siamese twins might have looked if one twin had been much smaller than the other. Pussy was a gray and white torn of distinguished size and mien. He was brought up in the family of Butler Bigley. After- wards the youthful heir of the Derbys had him for a pet. When the Derbys went to Europe kitty became dependent on the kindness of the servants. Whether it was from abuse or not, by the time the family returned the cat's whole demeanor and life had changed. Formerly such a fastidious feline, he muted not now be trusted, and -Master Derby was forbidden to bring him into the library or anywhere else in the \family part\ of the house. Pussy was no longer impeccable, and also was un- beautiful. For, besides bad habits. Pussy had, developed a discrepancy in Cie matter of ears. The appendages that hitherto had stood perfectly up- right, in shining blackness, immovable save for a wink of recognition now and again, had ceased to be mates, and one, at least, was steadfastly stiff, no matter what the urgent cause for action. In fact, one ear had become much smal- ler than- the other, and was continuing to diminish, the eye and cheeli shrink- ing in proportion. Pussy seemed to have no pain, and went about his rat catching and other occupations are usual, seeming to suffer no inconvenience apart from a slight stiffness in the joints now and then. He was just as good-humored, also, as before, and as fat as when a kitten. Two weeks after the metamorphosis began, pussy neglected to remember he was in a s gentleman's family, and the result was that the butler was ordered to notify the S. P. C. A. to come after pussy and secure him another home, where a cat which was big oh one side of the face and little on the other would be regarded as not only not a burden, but as a veritable prize. Other- wise to mercifully dispose of pussy. At the shelter Supt. Reid said; \Never did I see a case just lite this, I have seen cases of acromagely In ani- mals. just as in human beings, but never cases of shrinkage away. I sup- aose pussy must have got a hurt, but I don't see any signs of it. I have been in charge of many bench shows, and around stables a good bit, but it is only among horses I have seen acre- mageiy, or enlargement of the bones. I have seen them swell above the fet- lock till their leg was immense. The disease is called elephantiasis.\ Dr. Sherwood, who examined the cat with the shrinking face, said:, \I must say it is a most unusual case the second or third I have ever seen in my life in animals, and all the cases occurred in cats. I think it Is due to a blow, but hbe cat has never suffered any inconvenience. It Is a nervous af- fection. That side has ceased to be i nourished with blood, and this affected first the ear, then the eye, and finally the cheek and jaw. It is a genuine case of atrophy, or wasting away. The ear and eye are remarkably small, and the phenomenon will continue until the ear is scarcely discernible, the eye a mere slit, and the cheek just skin drawn over bone. \Pussy's mind will probably be quite clear to the last, though it may be af- fected, as atrophy is a brain trouble. A person will last a year, or year and a half, In that condition, and end In total paralysis.\ the Delilah Emigrants' Information Of - ace 'slates there Is \no opening for la- I bor in Victoria or South Australia, and that in New South Wales only experi- enced miners and agriculturists with (Anita , have any chance.\ In Queens- land thf• labor outlook is Improving. \Sin western Australia,\ says the circu- lar, \(here is a good demand for mineral at the Coolgardie goldfields; but the cost of living K e high, water is very Armee , in summer and the heat very great, no that no one is advised to go there unless he is strong nib' has some money.\ The British program of pub- lic works \gives promise of increased reneloyment for men in the `building tridea. in Natal there is a demand for brichtlyrra, carpenters and black- smiths, hut the office warnr, emigrants that there is danger of the inhor mar- ket in the Transvaal becoming over- stocked\ The national house of representatiees appleuded the prayer of its chaplain that Cube Might win In her fight for freedom. if the house would give the Almighty a little assistance by granting Cuba belligerent reghts the prayer would mbar tly be answered..

In New Zealand, wnere the old-fash- ioned methods in use In most other whale fisheries have been abandoned in flyer of nets, which ere now used for the capture in those waters of these leviathans of the sea, the nets are made of two-inch manilla rope and are so con- struiled that galvanized iron rings take the place of the knots In the ordinary nets. The mesh is a six-foot one and the ropes forming it are spliced into the rings. The -nets are made In six sections. each ten fathoms square, with two ten-gallon barrels as floats to each section. When setting the net the sec- tions are joined together with line just strong enough to bear the ordinary strain to which they are liable to be subjected, so that when a whale gets riverbed he tears away the section in which he is fast. While he is trying to get rid of the net the whaleboats, which are always waiting, dart along- side and harpoon him.—London An Importation of Ilum`14 aces, The New South Wales department of agelculture recently received a 'ton- signment at bumble bees by steamer from New Zealand. They were liber- nted in the Botanic gardens and in the lannean erieletY'e grounde at Elizabeth. \Does position affect sleep? asked a medical writer. it does when the Amen holds the poeiDon of night watch- man wARNINel TO Fess WOMEN. Their i.reat Danger When th• Flat 1 Takes Fire. Large, lumpy ladies who dwell neat to the roof in five -story buildings are be- set with dangers of which the narrow- guage female knows nothing, says the New York Journal. One of those perils is fire and the other is policemen. On a recent stormy midnight an officer pa- trolling his beat saw smoke curling over the shingles of a tail house. Know- ing that a large lady lived on the fifth floor he hastened to notify her without stopping to turn in an alarm. At the fourth landing the brave man disco - ered that further progress was barred by the burning stairway, but he man- aged to reach the boudoir of the large lady by means of the fire escape, She weighed 240 pounds dressed, but they did not wait for that ceremony. i fime was too precious. Seizing the lady, who was rendered helpless from fear, the gallant officer shoved her through the window and out upon the little iron platform. Then occurred a thrilling aerial act without the aid of a net or calcium light effects. It was the fault of no one that the lady happened to be - larger than the openings in the fire - escape platforms. To pass her dead weight aver the edge and lower it to the next landing was a feat beyond the power of one man. Even a policeman, clothed in full authority, balked in the , face of this proposition. There was only one thing to,be done, and the officer did it. First he pushed what he could of the lady through the hole, like a man stuffing a bedquilt into a hand valise, after which he swung himself below and pulled the rest of her through. It was a herculean job, but the red flames roaring above gave the rescuer renewed strength. Down the perpendicular lad- der he backed, with the limp form rest- ing on his head and shoulders. 'The thin iron rungs cut into his hands and the smoke almost stifled him, but the noble man struggled on. At the next landing the *large lady 'was again squeezed through the hole by the herola policeman, and so on nntil the ground was reached. Meanwhile an alarm had been sounded and the usual heqping throng was on hand. Some good Sa- maritan gave the exhausted large lady a big drink of brandy to brace her up, while the noble policeman went on about his business. There are others, however, who wear the shield and hel- met. One of them happened along and heard about the drink of brandy and saw the efforts of the unfortunate wom- an to save some of her property. Not to be outdone in gallantry by any po- liceman living, the second officer dragged the hapless creature off to jail and charged her with being drunk. This pathetic incident should warn large la- dles to either live on the ground floor or stick to the policeman who saves them from the lurid flames. Mrs. Cirrnderbilt's Fads. The chief hobby of Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt is the collection of old and curious watches. She possesses many curious specimens, notably a watch rep- resenting a pelican feeding three young. Another delightful little specimen is in the shape of a guitar, with enameled blue and yellow stripes; another is tulip -shaped, with enameled leaves; still another is in the shape of an urn of gold enamel, with gold filigree flow- ers. Very charming is another watch In Mrs. Vanderbilt's collection—an Egyptian harp in form; still another le surmounted by a crown made of rose diamonds—New York Advertiser. HELPS FOR HOUSEWIVES. Silver pen extractors are a new acces- sory for the- writing desk this season, and, although small, are strong enough to extract the most stubborn pen from Its holder and fill a long -felt want. To decorate a grate that is not . re- quired for use, place in it some mall pots containing ferns. Collect small fir cones, varnish them and throw emend in the grates so the pots shall be hidden. The latest card cases and pocket- books are made from a leather that Is called elephant's hide. It has rather a rough surface, and is of a light ten color. They are mounted at the cor- ners In dull gold, or have a plain gold band around them, headed by a narrow beading. Delicate white laces may be cleaned by laying them smooth on wrapping paper and covering them with mag- nesia; put another paper over this and place them between the leaves of a book for several days. Brush out the white powder and the lace will be found to be as fresh as when new. It is not necessary to have fresh and green things for all salads. The cold cooked vegetables may be utilized— asparagus tops, peas, beans, cold pota- toes and beets, cut in cubes, or any of them, mixed together with a few capers and sliced olives. The dis'Ils for any salad should be rubbed inside with a raw onion. Furs will look much improved if they are cleaned with bran heated in the oven. Rub the hot bran well into the fur with a piece of flannel, then shake the fur to remove all particles, and brush thoroughly. Fur collars that have become soiled from rubbing against the hair may be made to look Ilk' new by using hot bran on them. Apply the bran a second time If the fur is batty soiled. Meat and poultry, to be served cold, may be very much iraproved in appear- ance by being glazed. The process is very simple. An excellent glaze may be made of half an ounce of gelatine, dissolved. In a pint of water, and fla- vored as well as colored with extract of beef., To be griceetisful the meat must be peidectly cold before the glaze is put on, and the first (Talk g should be al- lowed to dry before the second is ap- plied. The glaze must be well melted 'and , warm, and applie,1 with a brush. JAMESON AN OUTLAW LEADER OF THE TRANSVAAL RAIDERS AN ADVENTURER.

The great Jameson has been the physical expres- sion of the great Rhodes' strength of mind. He end the African tempera- ment and Would probably have been as big a failure elsewhere as he was a success in that country of strange sur- prises. He came from a family of an- cient Scots, whence he inherited that marvelous ruggedness of body and ob- stinacy of spirit that had carried him all through the desperate and danger- ous career he has lived since settling In South Alders. His education was at medical one and he was in a fair way to distinguishing himself in that Sci- ence, and to the arts as well, when he threw up his practice and sailed for the diamond fields of Kimberley. Tile im- pulsive change can be acceunted for on no theory other than the doctor's im- A BRILLIANT WOMAN. Mrs. John Gordon of kaglaud EAU\) as a &vitalist. Among the most brilliant of the new generation of women in England who are winning fame as scientists and In other professions formerly regarded as open only to men is Mrs. John Gordon. re her recent marriage to the well- - flown Scotch physician Mrs. Gordon ant known as Mena M. Ogilvie, and had won a fame more than national as one of the foremost of British palae- ontologists. While this fame may have been partly due to the incongru- ity of association between the beauti- ful woman student and the dead relics of the past to which she devoted her name, there can be no question that her recognition as an authority in this branch of science would be justly due on the ground of merit alone. Her books on polaeontology are known to students everywhere, end have won her the degree of doctor 'of science from the University of London, a very un- usual honor to be bestowed upon a woman. Even while yet a student Mrs. Gordon gave promise of the brill- iant future in store, capturing the gold medal and several scholarships at the Ladies' College of Edinburgh, and aleo at Heriot College in the same city. Her native Scotch town not providing suffi- cient opportunity for study, she went to London, and, after passing the pre- liminary South Kensington examinee Dons, entered the scientific department of the London University. The most successful victory her industry won at the university was the gold medal of- fered for the best examination in zool- \IRS. JOHN GORDON. le nature and his innate love of uture.

It was there she met Dr. John Gordon, -whom she recently married. Mrs. Gordon will not abandon her scientific pursuits. Bourget on American Women. The famous novelist, Paul Bourget, ilveferiting his impressions of America, sass the New York Times, seems to have had the woman question constant- ly before his mind. The supremacy of our sex in America strikes him with surprise rind admiration; woman here is even more titan man's equal. The reason for this, he finds, is chiefly the fact that in this country intellect pre- dominates over emotion. Love with an American girl it, a secondary thing She can meet men, study with them and work with them without allowing ro- mantic dreams on her side or passion- ate wishes on theirs to interfere with good fellowship. An American maiden. unlike those of other countries, is, If anything, loath to marry, and very sel- dom cares to give up her freedom until she is 25 or more. This is partly be- cause parents are careful to provide for their daughters, so that marriage be- comes a matter of choice, not of neces- sity. Consequently, when our girls are married their Characters are fdemed; they know their own minds and make far better housewives than those of other countries. So, at least, thinks M. Bourget. An Antarctic Boom. A sort of boom In antarctic explora- tion is developing in London, where a syndicate has just been formed to send a whale and seal fishing expedition on two steam whalers of about 400 tons, while a smaller whaler will accompany them and take a. small scientific party under the guidance of Borchgrevink, the explorer.
