The New Eclectic Magazine, 1870, Vol. 6 free pdf Excerpt from The New Eclectic Magazine, 1870, Vol. 6 In short, it is undeniable that of the four elements the air has the best of it now. It has locked the earth and the water up tight, and even the fire cannot hold its own, and affects a very small circle just round about it, and no more. It is not long before rumours go forth that the Serpentine - or, as some will have it, the Circontime - will bear, and away rushes the populace to disport itself upon the broad expanse of its waters, or to stand in safety on the shore, scoffing at the misfortunes of its more venturesome members. Away rushes the populace, and, after them, away rushes the Eye-witness, to take note of the predominant characteristics of the scene. Peppermint and oranges are the predominant characteristics - hot, fiery, appetite-destroying peppermint, and cold, pale, grief-engendering oranges. It is impossible to stir five paces without coming in contact with a tray full of peppermint drops, or a basket lined with blue paper to set off its cargo of oranges. There is evidently a reaction of the stomach contemplated in this provision. The orange, which is hideously unripe and cold, produces such internal anguish that the consumer of it rushes off for peppermint to allay his torment- while the heated diaphragm of the peppermint eater calls loudly within him for the ever near orange. Nay, in some cases there are to be found humane men who sell the bane and antidote together, having a division in their baskets with oranges on one side and peppermint drops on the other. These two articles of consumption having it all their own way, it follows that the vendor of three-cornered tarts with a dab of jam couchant, in a field of pale paste, must come off second best- while the purveyors of gingerbread, roasted chestnuts, oily Brazil nuts, and even of hot elder wine, are left nowhere in the race. Not so the merchants of walking-sticks- there is a brisk demand for them, a walking-stick being much affected by your inexperienced skater. Indeed, such a supplementary prop is a serviceable thing, and, whether planted on the ice to support the beginner - in which case it always slips away from him - or flourished wildly in the air to the detriment of the eyes of other skaters, is a graceful and convenient appendage. The man who has brought what looks like an engine of torture, but which is really an instrument for ascertaining the height, weight, and strength of those who may be anxious for information on those subjects, has made a sad mistake. What could he hope for, but the neglect with which he is treated? Did he think that skaters who had measured their length on the ice would come and test the truth of their estimate afterwards, or that persons of corpulent proportions would wish to ascertain whether they were too heavy to venture on the ice?
