Curious Antique Newspaper Clippings

In the process of moving, I unearthed a c1900 scrapbook that I acquired several years ago. It's a technical engineering text with miscellaneous clippings pasted over most of the pages. I had put it aside, intending to conduct "further research" but you know how those things work...

Turns out that it wasn't very interesting, but I did find a handful of peculiar newspaper clippings that I thought I'd share.
