Centralia Daily Sentinel (Newspaper) - December 23, 1884, Centralia, Illinois
The Sentinel. Centralia Illinois. The last new thing in the Way of restaurants in Paris is a a convicts tavern.1 the waiters will Wear the dress of convicts and their hair will be closely cropped. Bread and water in All styles will be sold at fancy prices and attractive Young women dressed As convicts will sell absinthe behind a bar. The sound of the Kazoo and presently retires in a state of discomfiture and terror the boards of tile Back Fence Warp Aud the nails thereof Nave the headache and the Acme of its Melody will banish freckles from a Ann burned face. Louis Xii. Thought he had had his life shortened by the Caprice of fashion which changed his dinner time from an extraordinarily Early hour in the morning to nearly noon and it is observed by a student of human nature that the refinement of a nation May be gauged by the lateness of its dinner hour. Sheriff Bishop of Cloverdale cab recently started to Guerneville to capture a prisoner. On the Way he met a person who asked for a ride. He assented and in a Short time was confiding his Mission to the stranger and wound up by asking him if he would get tho prisoner drunk. The stranger agreed and after tapping the sheriff for $5 for expenses in securing the required a drunk Quot took his departure with the understanding that he would meet the sheriff at an appointed time and place. The sheriff was there at the appointed time but the stranger not and a very Good reason he was incredible As it May seem it is reported on what seems Good authority that a drum major has died at new York City. No affidavit accompanies the announcement but we see no reason to discredit the not unwelcome news. The tradition that drum majors Are immortal is thus effectually dispelled. In the famous Tichborne had for not keeping his appointment he was the very Man whom the sheriff started to arrest. M trial the claimant said he had shipped from new York on the Osprey which was wrecked. The defense claimed that there was no such ship. A Man has been found in Atlanta who was Cook on a vessel Between new York and san Francisco in 49, and who says that his ship spoke the Osprey from new York to Australia. As a scientific observer claims that the flatness of the Earth at the pole brings the Polar Ocean thirteen Miles nearer than any other portions of the Globe to the Central Ball of fire upon which he believes this Earth to be built. Consequently the heat is so great that the water could never freeze Over and if there is a sea at that spot at All it must be an open one. There is some danger that the Prim Donna of the world will before Long be compelled to enter into Competition with a number of Piggy rivals introduced into the musical world by an enterprising italian who has succeeded training a Large number of parrots opera singers. These Gay singers have lately made their debut at Lima Peru the programme being a fragment of the Well known opera a Norma a with solos chorus and the accompaniment of an harmonium. The Success is said to have been Complete up to the Cavatina Casta diva at which the hilarity of the Public became so boisterous that the performers lost All self control and Shri kingly left tho stage not to appear again that Day.

May Agnes Fleming has been dead several years but a new York publisher continues to announce works from her pen. The publisher was asked the other Day if mrs. Fleming was devoting her time in the spirit land to the writing of novels. He was somewhat taken Aback but replied that the dead novelist left quite a number of Mac script works behind her. This is not at All probable. At Portland Oregon recently Ding Wing a chinese merchant entertained a number of his brother merchants at a costly and elaborate banquet. The occasion was the shaving of the head of the infant son of Ding Quot Wing who was a month old tile Day before. When a chinese boy is one month old his head is shaved and a bladder drawn Over it and As his head grows the bladder bursts and the Cue sprouts Forth. The first shave is made the occasion of a banquet and the guests Are expected to make the Host a handsome present in Coin for the newly shaven boy with which a Bank account is started to his credit. This is the most pleasant feature of the affair for the baby As the razor always pulls and he cannot take part in the decided that he c Oul ii u t Ile late. Elbert Collins had never been marked absent or tardy since his first going to school in september and it was his ambition to finish the whole year without a a Mark partly because he really liked to be prompt and partly because he thought it would be so Nice to see his name in tho paper at the end of the year. December had come and the Short mornings were very Lively ones in his mothers Little Kitchen because of so Many things to be done before the 9 of clock Bell. There was tile Wood Box to fill the Canary to food and generally the Cradle to Rock while the Mother attended to such work As could be done Best while there was some one to look after the baby. On this particular morning however the Mother had gone to mrs. Browne a around the Corner for a cup of yeast and had become so interested in a recipe for chocolate cake a pattern for a boy s Blouse the Pound party at the methodist ministers and some new Way for trimming Christmas Trees that she entirely forgot the time of Day. Meanwhile Little Elbert with his overshoes and Scarf on and Cap in hand rocked the Cradle and kept his eyes on the clock. Five ten minutes passed away. The Long hand was crawling alarmingly near last Bell time. He tied his Scarf pulled his Cap Over his ears and rocked harder than Ever. Still no Mother. Then to went to the door looked anxiously toward the Corner and sent out a Lusty shout a Mamma a a come Hoo me a but no one responded except the baby. A ooh dear dear a he exclaimed As he rushed Back to the Cradle and just then his expectant ears heard the first slow cling Clang of the last Bell. It would ring for five minutes the schoolhouse was Only three streets away and there time enough yet if he could Only the baby kiting along like the or there by Webster amp or supposed it woe the i rom the Way he carried Iti and ii Evert a Quot j i m As a merciful Man Hsy a taken Ber to school a about ten minutes later a flustered Little woman rapped at the door of the first primary Boom and inquired for a baby it was handed her along with an empty milk bottle and wrapping them doth in a red cloak which she carried she thanked the smiling teacher and walked quietly Home. At first she hat Felt very angry toward Elbert but when she looked at the clock and remembered his horror at being late she softened toward Hun considerably and by the time she had got the baby Home and found her none the worse for her Little runaway she had her laugh also and being a fair minded woman she told Elbert when lie came Home to dinner that it was very thoughtless in her to have staid so Long at mrs. Browne a. And Elbert gave her a hug and said he was a glad he dint leave the baby a cause she might have been burned up you know a a Harper s Young people. Baby wit. A lady returning Home later than usual found her Little girl three years old in bed. The latter was asked Lillie have you said your prayers a a whom did you say them to Lillie a a there Wasny to nobody Here to say them to so i said Mem to a Young City fellow dressed in a faultless suit and a pair of shoes that tapered into a Point in the most modern style was visiting in a Rural District. A Bright Little boy looked him All Over until his eyes rested on those shoos. He looked at his own Chubby feet and then at his visitors and then looking up said a mister is All your toes Cutter off but one a a Little six year old girl pleaded to have her hair left to grow Long. Her Mother told her if she would Wear her hair Short until she was fourteen years old she would make her a Beautiful present. The Mother added a that is if you and i both live until that Little Bertha pondered the proposition for a moment and bravely said a Ama i am afraid i would not make a very pretty Corpse with my hair the a Angel Wing mine.

A take her see was a girl has been born in new York City destitute of arms and legs a rudimentary formation like a toe being the Only evidence of even an embryonic limb. This we believe is the Only instance of the kind known though babes have been born and grown to maturity that had no hands or feet but not deficient in both. It is thought that when this child grows up she will quietly accept her Fate at any rate she wont put up a kick about it. A half length portrait in Oil of Martin Kosta the celebrated hungarian refugee who was years ago rescued from the austrians by a United states Man of War has been presented to the new Hampshire historical society by col. William h. Stevens United states Consol at Smyrna in behalf of the citizens of that place. It is said to be the Only portrait of hosta in existence. It has been As Good As two million More voters Are to be added to the franchise of great Britain. It has also been settled to Reform the districts from which members of parliament Are to be chosen. Under the old system a very few voters elected a disproportionately Large number of members of parliament while great cities like London were most inadequately represented. In the United states we try to make each congressional District As nearly equal with other districts As it can be in population and number of votes but even under the Reform system of great Britain one third of the voters will choose two thirds of the members of parliament. But the tide of democracy is rising and the two million of new voters will time insist on a new distribution scheme which will place All the voters of the realm on Equality. Sergeant Ballantyne in his a from the old world to the new declares that in american hotels the a cooking is vile and the wines except being pro be Calcutta a the Home of cholera to be put into a Good sanitary condition. The British medical journal thinks this cannot be done a Day too soon and cites the condition of Jona Bagan one of the wards of the Eity.

It consists of a cylindrical piece of red Wood with perforated tin trimmings and its Utility is derived from the fact that a it can play any tune without a the breath of any healthy boy projected into one of its perforations produces a wild weird wound and As the expansive Mouth of the youth incorporates in its sweep the other openings of the Lute there in a combination of noises that defies Competition. It is said that its discordant mutterings outdo the Melody miracles of orpheus. The feline serenade that startles the stars in dead of night pauses in the midst of a Cater Waul at i a compromised. Jujj a lieutenant governor in the Western part of the Commonwealth used to be Mise i of opinion in which he was concerned. I on one occasion the Church with which be was connected was rent by a fierce contest As to whether the congregation should turn their backs upon the min water and face the choir during the singing or should pursue the More Modi Era method of simple rising in their i seats with faces turned toward the pulpit. The War closed by the acceptance i of a proposition of the lieutenant i governor that the congregation should face the Side of the House during the musical bulletin. Algernon Charles Swinburne the poet detests tobacco. One Day at the arts club after going from room to room in the vain Hope of finding a Clear atmosphere to write in he exclaimed impatiently a James the first was a Knave a tyrant a fool a liar a Coward. But i love him i worship him because he Slit the Throat of that blackguard Baleigh who invented this filthy Start. One thing was certain he would never leave his Little baby sister. He remembered a Story of a poor baby who was almost burned to death because her brother who had promised to take care of her left her and ran out on the Street to play. He went to the door and shouted again. It was something like the Cise of Casablanca. When two mothers Are talking about patterns and Christmas Trees who Ever knew them to notice every Little outside noise Elbert a Shoat ended in a big sob. A Man going to lose his entire Fortune feel worse than this Little fellow did with that dreadful a a tardy Mark hanging Over his head. Then a Happy thought flashed into his mind. Turning to the Cradle he caught up the baby scattering the pillows and blankets right and left bundled an old shawl Over her snatched her half filled milk bottle dashed out of the House and ran in the direction of that ringing Bell As fast As his Stout Young legs could carry him. The baby was a Little mite Only two and a half months old and Elbert was nearly six years and Large for his age. He met two women whom he knew and who commenced making weak remarks like a wily Elbert a and a what on Earth a but he bounded past them with no answer but his panting breath and reached the school House in such Good time that the Bell gave its two last clangs just As he handed Over his funny Burden to the astonished teacher. A i leave her and i be late a he said As soon As he could get breath enough to speak. A and Shell Goto sleep and be real Good a he continued As the teacher began to unwind the shawl. And then the whole room saw a surprised half smothered Little baby still in her night gown one Bare foot sticking out and her Little fists tightly clenched As if defying anybody to Send her Home. The teacher was a Good natured Young lady and she laughed so that she almost dropped the baby on the floor and then the whole room laughed and finally Elbert joined in for he was glad that he escaped the tardy Mark and the baby certainly did look funny at school. Of course there could he no order. Nearly All the scholars had babies at Home or were Well acquainted with those of their neighbors but they acted is if they had never seen one before and every movement of the Little Pink hands and every turn of the Small Bald head made them scream with laughter until Hie principal of the school came into the room to see what the disturbance was and after trying to look severe for five seconds he laughed too. And while All thib fun was going on Elbert smother was running wildly through the four rooms of her House calling her boys name and feeling sure that the children were either killed and thrown into the Cistern or else carried off like Charley Ross and lost forever. The scattered pillows and upset rocking chair indeed made the Kitchen appear As if there had been a struggle and the wide open door and the Gate creaking to and fro had a dreadful look to Elbert smother. J ust then the woman Elbert had met stopped it the Gate and said to the Mother who was coming hurriedly out a la anything the matter mrs. Collins a a ooh i done to know where my children Are i left them while i ran into mrs. Drowned a minute and the kitchens All upset and in a afraid a a wily we just now met Elbert with every Man his own doctor. A Well doctor i have called to see Yon about and yet i hardly know Why i should have called inasmuch As i am perfectly Well aware what is the matter with a indeed a a yes i am afflicted with eczema so Zod ontes familiarly known As a Herpetic affection of a a the great unknown malady of our epoch in a precisely. I have read everything that has been written on the subject whole libraries a a nah permit me to examine a a it is not necessary to do so doctor i am perfectly acquainted with my condition and symptoms. I have diagnostic ted the disease and find it to be neither Stalatt form nor Marc form nor am i Able to discover any indications of fur Fugacity and squamous Ness. The complaint is of the kind denominated infuriated Lichen on account of its ferocious a Are you sure of that a a i am willing to stake my reputation on it doctor. Besides All the books i have consulted Are in Accord on the a Well sir then i suppose i must treat you for infuriated a treat me that is very easily said doctor but what treatment Are you going to adopt he ? alkaline solutions they Are exploded. Sulphur it is completely out of Date. Arsenic ? it exercises an injurious effect on the Coats of the stomach. Prof. Winkel Roann in his monumental work leans strongly toward Essian Baths and powerful Sudori fies but i have always doubted whether his conclusions were based upon a sufficient study. Come. Doctor which course will you adopt a a we Ell Winch would you prefer a a i Haven to been Able to decide Between flaxseed and tar water but suppose we try tar water doctor Quot a very Well tar water be a i will follow your advice doctor and buy up All the latest books on the subject of tar water and read them up and when a a yes then come to go Over the subject prescription a teas and evening you diet a a ooh yes doctor i it. No underdone meat avoid and above All shellfish and me and we will again. Writes it Ful morning now. As Ftp know All about fish so on. Good Day doctor Quot ing fee on table Figaro. Deposits thu rap and exit a Paris i for i Knowd what it meant. Id been thar Uii Solf. And then he went away an you done to know How lonesome that place Wiz to me. Every tree in the mountains was jest echoing his voice All the time and eve pts Young Deer that Crost my track after that looked like him. And whenever i took my Rifle out to kill some Brin thing i jest let the gun go Down on the groan. I kill nothing that was ii Vine. I ast to go to the fort to get hard tao to live on. One evening two children came to the Cabin. I Knowd tho boy and i Knowd the girl though id never seen the girl Afore. Her face was As White As the Snow on tho top of pikes Peak. Her eyes was As Blue As Hie sky when there ainu to no Clouds on it. And she was no bigger than my coat sleeve. Tho boy was my boy. They had come a Long ways and she seemed to be up yonder instead of Here. She never spoke from the Tinie we Laid her Down on the firs. A she would insist a sed the boy a on Corning Here to see Yon and in be fetched her All the she seemed to know what he sed but talk but something passed Over her face that was the Juniest thing i Ever expect to see until i meet her up thar. The boy sed a she a Layin on an Angelus Wing a and we put her head Back on the furs and pulled the hair Back on her forbid that was like the snows and we Sot thar All night Long. The winds come Down the Mountin Gorges that night As if they Wiz muffled and thar was not a Coyote in All them Diggins As Ever raised his voice. The next Day we made a pro Cheshun of ourselves and put her away right Down by tho Little Caty Rac that Hainet stopped its music since god set it in tune and we put Quartz All about it and then left it alone. A sleeping on an Angelus Wing a see tile boy. And we give the mine that Herald. Teach then la speak pro Perl. One has Only to hear the children of any family speak to know what language it to eco by their superiors. It i8 not necessary to study the rules and principles of grammar in order to be a Correct speaker. It is habit and one that is acquired from Early infancy. Of course tile study of grammar is a great help to a Prober use of was Arni expressions is it gives reasons Why such and such words Are used in a particular sense. But it is not an uncommon thing to hear educated men and women who should know better make grave mistakes in the use of language. It cannot be because they Are ignorant of the principles of grammar since they Are always Able to Correct themselves after a Little thought. It must fee then that they have accustomed theine Elve since childhood to a certain Sot of expressions which will cling to them through life unless a great Effort i made to rid themselves of them. Parents have the Means in their Power of rendering their Little ones Good grammatical speakers. If fathers and mothers would use sensible language in talking to their babies when they Are first learning to speak the child would never know any better and would speak correctly just As easily As it would incorrectly. For instance in the use of personal pronouns almost every child will say a me wants a piece of bread and butter instead of a i want etc., and very often they use no personal pronoun but their own name. I have always heard it said that it was almost an impossibility to Tench Little ones the use of pronouns but that is no reason Why we As mothers should not try. I know personally of cases of children Only three years of age who do use pronouns and generally in tim proper place. Of course a great Ninny mistakes Are made daily but if they Are corrected every time they Are made the children will naturally fall into the habit of expressing themselves in a proper manner and take Pride in it too. Any one who has had any experience with children knows that it is a common thing to hear from the lips of girls and boys of perhaps ten or twelve years of age such expressions As a i snowed a i seen a a Ham to got a the bring it a and All the forms of the verb to to Are generally used in some wrong Maimer. It takes time Aud patience to Stop them whenever they make a mistake but it will save a great Deal of labor for them afterwards and afford us a Large amount of present gratification. Tell the child to repeat the proper expression after yen and after one or two repetitions of the correction they will not be Apt to make the same error again. Children make use of the expressions that they hear at Home and if their elders will always use Good language the Little ones will do the same. Some mothers have idea that any affection for the baby shape of the horses Back. An English live Stock paper in an article relating to the selection of a horse for the work he is expected to perform after stating the results of Many observations on horses remarks that it is the Arch of a Bridge which from its Structure can Bear weight placed upon it whereas an inverted Arch would fall to pieces or would withstand a far less pressure. It has been observed that Low backed or rather hollow backed horses working in harness kept their condition while those with High backs lost flesh. Persons of not very inquiring or observant dispositions would probably attribute this to the fact that the former were of More Hardy Constitution than the latter but this would be a false conclusion. It is owing entirely to the curvature of the Back for a horse which can draw a weight is least Able to Bear a weight upon its Back while the horse unable to Bear the Strain of draft can beat the other any Day in carrying weight. The line of the Vertebra indicates the sort of work for which the horse is fitted. If it is High the weight must be on the top to press it together if Low the pressure must be from below for the same reason. A downward curvature is therefore the Best form of spine for a draft horse. Those who try to Lead the Steps of a Little child in the right Way Are doing Earth a grandest work. A Mizrahie Empress. Strange and somewhat pathetic Are the ways of those Royal households of which Only the old stately splendor meets the Eye. How few seeing the Empress of Germany fulfilling All the duties of her station every Inch a Queen Woad guess that for eighteen months since her Accident she has been racked with almost intolerable pain liable to walk or leave her chair she had herself carried once a week to the Augusta Hospital and to the Augusta foundation for the daughters of poor officers and those killed in Buttle both these institutions Are her own work and she dispenses in person Consolation advice and commands. Every sunday Well or ailing she attends divine service not in her private Chapel or oratory but in one of the Public churches. Empress in name slave in fact she shirks none of the obligations even the most trying ones of her station Aud astonishes the most experienced diplomats and Ablest state ministers by the readiness of her wit her unfailing tact and profound erudition. Those who see her Bant Pas covered with priceless jewels Robed in her purple Mantle fringed with heavy Sables do not realize that the regal train intentionally thrown Over Lier feet hides the maimed tortured limb As effectually As her sufferings a concealed under the smile which she turns on the emperor at her right on the mistress of Robes standing a Little Back on the left or on the ladies bending Low before her in a triple Courtesy a they Paeai she who could Best reveal the truth and Tell of Noble endurance and Brave patience is the old silesian woman who was brought from her peasant Home in the provinces to give the Sovereign Relief by her manipulations. She has done nothing else since her childhood and the professional gift of Healing friction is hereditary in her family As it is with Many of the silesian shepherds. This aged woman rubs the Empress twice sometimes three times a Day according to the intensity of the pain and is rarely away from her now. A mme. De Stael s London Teller. A humming Birds umbrella. In front of a window where i worked last summer was a Butternut tree. A humming Bird built her nest on a limb that grew near the window and we Hod an Opportunity to watch her closely As we could look right into the nest from the window. One Day there was heavy Shower coming up end a v an cannot be expressed in Good language but they must Tell their love in what is known As baby talk. Now this same baby talk although it sounds very cunning for awhile soon loses its Charm especially when tho child is three or four years old and we wish then that we had talked to them in a proper manner and had done All that we possibly could to make them Correct speakers. It is a rarity and also a great pleasure to have a child of five or six and sometimes even older speak so As to be understood by any one. Parents leave too much to teachers thinking that All errors will to rectified when under their charge. But habits of several years standing Are hard to break Aud a child who says a i seen during childhood will be Apt to me the expression when fully matured. I know of Many cases of ladies who use this and similar phrases simply from Force of habit not from ignorance. They Are it conscious of having used a wrong word Aud have often been mortified for so doing. Grown up people who use wrong words should put a watch upon themselves and make up their minds to use Only Correct language. Aud How much easier it will lie for our boys and girls when they Are men and women if we Hae instilled in their minds Only the proper forms of language so that speak my correctly will be As natural to them As eating their . We thought we would see if she covered her Young during the storm but when the first drops Tell she came and took in her Bill one or two or three leaves growing close to the nest and Laid these leaves Over so they completely covered the nest then she flew away. On looking at the leaves we found holes in them and in the Side of the nest was a Small stick that the leaves were fastened to or hooked on. After the storm was Over the old Bird came Back and unhooked the leaves and the nest was perfectly american sportsman. Sinter stows Campaign speech.
