The dance began around sundown on
Saturday, with the Grand March and the
first waltz. Music would continue until
around midnight when the revelers
would break for supper. After eating a
meal, followed by sweets, and the
libation of choice, it was back to the
dance floor until dawn. Finally, the last
waltz would echo into the hills just in
time to the Sunday morning church
meeting.

             Interview with Queen Victoria’
                       protestants

Hi, I am Albert Frank and I’m going to interview Queen Victoria’s Protestants. A group of people
were shouting and throwing stones at the Parliament because they disagreed with Queen Victoria’
rule, because they think she was too young to be a Queen and also she has changed the wages. Now
most of the workers are earning low wages so they complain about the changes made by the Queen.
I decided to speak with the leader of them
Albert: Hello sir, can I ask you some questions for a newspaper?
Paul: Yes, of course.
Albert: Ok, let’s start, first of all what’s your name?
Paul: My name is Francisco Paul Philip but you can call me Paul.
Albert: Ok Paul, What is your job?
Paul: Now I’m working in a small tavern but I have been working for a long time as a bricklayer.
Albert: And why are you against Queen Victoria?
Paul: Because she has changed our wages and now they are very low and I cant support my family
with these wages.
Albert: And why don’t you try to change your job and look for a better one?
Paul: I only can work as a bricklayer or barman and if I work as a bricklayer I would earn less
money than now.
Albert: Why don’t you try to create a union and speak to someone who can help you?
Paul: We have tried it but they don’t pay attention to us.
Albert: Ok, thank you now I have to go. Good bye
Paul: Ok, good bye


Paul returned to the group of people and they started to throw stones again. I think people like them
need help from someone to change their minds.

              Jack the Ripper strikes again
Mutilated corpse found yesterday morning in Hanbury Street. The policemen don´t know
what to do to catch the killer.

Yesterday morning Mr. Wynne E. Baxter, the Coroner for the North-
Eastern Division of Middlesex, opened his inquiry in the Alexandra
room of the Working Lads' Institute, Whitechapel Road, respecting the
death of Annie Chapman, who was found murdered in the back yard of
29, Hanbury Street, Spitalfields, on Saturday morning. Detective
Inspectors Abberline, Helson, and Chandler, and Detective Sergeants
Thicke and Leach watched the case on behalf of the Criminal
Investigation Department and Commissioners of Police. The court room
was crowded, and, due to the number of persons assembled outside the
building, they had to be guarded by a number of police constables.
The jury having been empaneled, proceeded to the mortuary to view the body of the deceased,
which was lying in the same shell that was occupied a short time before by the unfortunate Mary
Ann Nichols. John Davis, a car man, of 29, Hanbury Street, Spitalfields, deposed that he occupied
the front room, which was shared by his wife and three sons. About 8 o'clock on Friday night he
went to bed, and his sons came in at different times. The last one arrived home about a quarter to
11. The witness was awake from 3 to about 5 o'clock, when he fell off to sleep for about half an
hour. He got up about a quarter to 6. The front portion of the house faced Hanbury Street. On the
ground floor there was a front door, with a passage running through to the back yard. He was

one leading into the yard were never locked, and at times were left open at nights. Since he had
lived in the house witness had never known the doors to be locked; and when the doors were shut
anybody could open them and pass into the yard. When he went into the yard on Saturday morning
the back door was shut; but he was unable to say whether it was latched. The front door was wide
open, and he was not surprised at finding it so, as it was frequently left open all night. Between the
yard of 29, Hanbury-street, and the next house there was a fence about 5ft. high. When the witness
went down the steps he saw the dead woman lying flat on her back:
She was horribly mutilated; her throat had been cut from left to right and the intestine had been
removed and put on the victim shoulders.
Since then, the police continue without any clues about the identity of the killer.

                THE LATEST INVENTIONS
I would like to introduce the latest inventions of the year…!
I will start by explaining a a very important invention to the world of science, the endoscope. René
Laennec was embarrassed to listen to the chest of his female patients, so he invented the endoscope.
It is a tube approximately 30 cm long to allow René to hear the beat of their patients without putting
his ear up to their chest.
This is an important discovery in the world of science because you can hear the heartbeat more
accurately.
However Im not only speaking about medical inventions, there were also two important inventions
for the home, a vacuum and an iron. The vacuum was built by Melville Bissell, who built a vacuum
for his wife.
The vacuum caused a revolution in the world of house cleaning, because it saved time and effort.
Henry W. Seely invented a cordless electric iron, its price wasn´t for the poor so I`ll have to wait to
buy it.
But there were also other inventions that are not home inventions .Some examples are the
phonograph, the tire, the electric light and the phone.
The Frechman Edouard- Leon Scott has already patented the first machine capable of recording
sound, the phonograph, although still not been able to hear what he has recorded. Hopefully he will
soon come to find out how to listen to what his invention recorded.
Thanks to the tricycle of the son of John Boyd Dunlop, now we have the tire, it is also one of the
most important inventions nowadays.
The most important invention lately is the electric light, it was invented by Thomas Edison,
although still lacking a bit to get to our homes.
Which is not far from being the best invention of recent years is the phone, although it is believed
that Mr. Alexander Bell invented it many theories suggest that the true inventor was the Italian
Antonio Meucci, the idea of the phone was because Antonio was in the need to speak with his wife,
who had mobility problems and stayed in her room most of the time.
                                                                                       By David Martín

Albert´s Death
Albert Francis Charles Augustus Emmanuel of
Saxe-Coburg-Gotha was born on 26 August
1819 at Schloss Rosenau, in Bavaria, the
younger son of the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-
Gotha. When he was seven, his father divorced
his mother on grounds of adultery, and she was
sent to live in Switzerland and forbidden to see
her children. Albert was educated at Bonn
University. In 1840, he married his cousin,
Queen Victoria. The marriage was unpopular in
some quarters, and parliament resisted granting
Albert what his wife regarded as a suitable
allowance. Albert's role as advisor to his wife
came into full force after the death of Lord
Melbourne, the prime minister, who had exerted
a strong paternal influence over Victoria.
Albert began to act as the Queen's private secretary. He encouraged his wife a greater interest in
social welfare and invited Lord Shaftesbury, the driving force behind successive factory acts, to
Buckingham Palace to discuss the matter of child labour. His constitutional position was a difficult
one, and although he exercised his influence with tact and intelligence, he never enjoyed great
public popularity during Victoria's reign. It wasn't until 1857 that he was formally recognised by
the nation and awarded the title 'prince consort'. Albert took an active interest in the arts, science,
trade and industry. He masterminded the Great Exhibition of 1851, with a view to celebrating the
great advances of the British industrial age and the expansion of the empire. He used the profits to
help to establish the South Kensington museums complex in London.
In the autumn of 1861, Albert intervened in a diplomatic row between Britain and the United States
and his influence probably helped to avert war between the two countries. When he died suddenly
of typhoid on 14 December, Victoria was overwhelmed by grief and remained in mourning until
the end of her life. She commissioned a number of monuments in his honour, including the Royal
Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens completed in 1876. Albert and Victoria had nine children,
most of whom married into the other royal houses of Europe.

The man who doesn´t support children




This story is about two boys who live near an old man and they make his life impossible
because they don’t stop making noise and playing.
One day the old man gets angry and looks for the children to punish them but they start to run
and while he is following them he falls down and he breaks his hip.
After that he couldn’t walk any more and the children looked after him for the rest of his life.
