A sugarsticky girl shovelling scoopfuls of creams for a christian brother. Some school treat. Bad for their tummies. Lozenge and comfit manufacturer to His Majesty the King. God. Save. Our. Sitting on his throne, sucking red jujubes white.

(church and crown)
Christian Brothers wore cassocks and took vows of poverty

Bloom is across the street from Mooney's, and a little south

undignified image
(did they really turn white?)
the 1862 street directory said "Lemon, Graham, and Co. wholesale
confection, lozenge, and comfit manufacturers to the Queen and Castle"

A sombre Y.M.C.A. young man, watchful among the warm sweet fumes of Graham Lemon's, placed a throwaway in a hand of Mr Bloom.

Graham Lemon and Co. dated back to 1851
Queen Victoria favored them

Heart to heart talks.

(headline on throwaway, presumably, but not italicised)

Bloo... Me? No.

(everyone does this, right?) cf SD p135 "Speaking about me. What did he say? What did he say? What did he say about me? Don't ask."

Blood of the Lamb.

His slow feet walked him riverward, reading. Are you saved? All are washed in the blood of the lamb. God wants blood victim. Birth, hymen, martyr, war, foundation of a building, sacrifice, kidney burntoffering, druid's altars. Elijah is coming. Dr John Alexander Dowie, restorer of the church in Zion, is coming.

(Dowie was in Europe all week)

Is coming! Is coming!! Is coming!!!
All heartily welcome.
Paying game. Torry and Alexander last year. Polygamy. His wife will put the stopper on that.

Torrey and Alexander visited Dublin in 1904
Dowie wasn't accused of 'polygamous teaching' until 1906

Where was that ad some Birmingham firm the luminous crucifix? Our Saviour. Wake up in the dead of night and see him on the wall, hanging. Pepper's ghost idea. Iron Nails Ran In.

"to retain the brilliancy of the Corpus expose it to the sun or electric light occasionally"
the original Pepper's ghost used a glass pane as reflector

Phosphorus it must be done with. If you leave a bit of codfish for instance. I could see the bluey silver over it. Night I went down to the pantry in the kitchen. Don't like all the smells in it waiting to rush out. What was it she wanted? The Malaga raisins. Thinking of Spain. Before Rudy was born. The phosphorescence, that bluey greeny. Very good for the brain.

(why isn't there a simple photo of this fishglow?)

"large, high-quality, sweet raisins with seeds"
(LB as Molly's devoted servant)

From Butler's monument house corner he glanced along Bachelor's walk.
