TRUSTED AND TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
TRUSTED AND TRUE. "Kathleen, Is it possible that you are crying again? Did I not tell you that I would discharge you if I found you indulging in that foolish whimpering any more?" Poor Kathleen O'Neil had been dusting the elegantly furnished drawing-room, and she stood before an exquisite painting of one of the blue, sparkling Irish lakes, set in gold-green shorts, with a sky beyond like liquid amber, —stood with her apron to her eyes and her ruddy cheeks deluged with tears. "I couldn't help it, ma'am," she sobbed; "but it puts me in mind of home.'' "Home!" scornfully echoed Mrs. Arnott. "Your home! A shanty in a bog. It isn't likely you ever saw such a spot as that." "Deed did I, then, ma'am," answered Kathleen, "and many a time. For we lived beyant litem same green shores ■' when"— "There, that will do," said Mrs. Arnott, coldly; "I don't care to hear about any reminiscences." Kathleen did not understand the flvesyllabled word, but her quick nature comprehended the sarcastic tone....
Clearing Waste-Pipes. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
Clearing Waste-Pipes. The annoyance arising from the stoppage of waste-pipes in country houses, although very great, is but a small matter compared with the dangers which may follow obstructed pipes. The "sewer-gas," about which so much has been written, and which is so justly dreaded, is not, as many suppose, the exclusive product of the sewer. Indeed, the foul and dangerous gases are not only found in the sewers themselves, but in the unventilated wastepipes, and those which are in process of being clogged by the foul matter passing through them. Any obstruction in the soil or waste-pipes is therefore doubly dangerous, because it may produce an inflow of foul gas into the pipe, even though the entrance to the sewer itself has been entirely cut off. The question is, how to get rid of the accumulations in pipes partly stopped or already closed. Digging up and cleaning out is a costly remedy, often ineffectual by reason of careless workmen. The second is the plumber's force-pump, whi...

FAITHFUL POMPEY. How an Elephant Avenged the Murder of a Pretty Girl. The Remarkable Story Told by a Circus Attache-A Foul Deed and Its Consequences-A Sight Such as Men Seldom Look Upon. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
FAITHFUL POMPEY. How an Elephant Avenged the Murder of a Pretty Girl. The Remarkable Story Told by a Circus Attache—A Foul Deed and Its Consequences—A Sight Such as Men Seldom Look Upon. [N. Y. Sun.] In 1867 I was attached to a circus, which had a route through Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Among the six elephants in the menagerie was one named Pompey, and his mahout or keeper was an old man named Andrew Thompson. He had been in the show business all his life, and for the last fifteen years had been accompanied by his daughter, who was down on the bills as "Mlle. Josie Picard, the wonderful equestrienne." The old man was a widower, you understand, and I tell you he was one of the kindest and best fathers to Josie, which was her right name. She was, at the time I am writing of, about twenty years of age, handsome, vivacious, well educated, and loved by all. During the winters she attended a seminary in. the East, and had many friends in high society. Every, summer she had a score of wo...

A STORY OF A FORTUNE. How an Atlanta Man Made a Half-Million in a Few Years. [Atlanta Constitution] Let me tell you about the easiest $100,000 that a good man ever earned.

The proceeds of the bond sales were largely put into improvements. Major Wallace has drawn over $100,000 in cash dividends on his $5000 investment. He has drawn $17,000, or three times his investnent in dividends this year with four months «it&amp;ar from. tNjM.^ paying such dividends the company has over $.,000,00 in cash ...ets, ......... .. its...

NEW YEAR'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
NEW YEAR'S DAY. The ''Christinas Puck" has a side-split-ting and suggestive picture representing a family party of exclusive Knickerbockers, surrounded by luxuries of furniture and food, while the host, lifting his wine-glass. Invokes the spirits of the founders of the family—represented on the walls of the room by dignified' personages in magnificent gilt frames—.to witness the glory and importance of their natural successors. The cartoon, entitled "A Prompt Response," depicts the sudden appearance on the scene of the numerous ancestors thus invited, and the surprise and consternation of the company at the unexpected success of the invocation. Dimly represented in the rear of the apartment, come trooping m, the worthy predecessors of this assemblage of New York grandees: ragamuffins, truculent old swash bucklers, and pirates Of the olden lime—all the strange half-real. half-imaginary heroes of Irving's delightful pages. The beauty of this satirical comment on the fashionable societ...
CARRIED OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
CARRIED OVER. Like other New Year.-*, this of ISS7 rind.* itself burdened at the start with a legacy of neglected public duties. There are ihree items to wich we have frequently called the attention of our readers, and to which, at the beginning of another year, it may not be out of place to refer once more: the inadequacy of onr present City Hall, our apology for a Public Library building, and the new bridge, which, as ret. exists only in the fertile imaginations of citizei sol Boston and Cambridge. It is hardly to be supposed that anyone seriously doubts the desirability, if not the actual necessity. of the new buildings to which we allude. We have entirely outgrown the public edifice on tbe corner of Main and Pleasant streets. It Is doubtful if any other city in Xciv England, of half our pretensions, is so wretchedly equipped with suitable quarters for jie accommodation of its various official boards, and of the public on special occasions; and as regards the structure now used f...
A SERIOUS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
A SERIOUS QUESTION. There are time*, when, lo men and women who think at all, the question arises whether, on the whole, the dally paper, which with its chronicle of events good and bad, its ghastly r cord of murders, robberies, and obsc ne sc iihLils, becomes once in every twenty-rour hours a regular &gt; item of family literature, is not an al at unmitigated nuisance and evil. For a month, more or less, nearly all the secular newspapers of Sew England reeked w itli tbe disgusting particulars of a London divorce case. In which various male and female rcpresentativ. s &lt; f the British aristUstracy have figured respectively as plaindefendant, or witnesses. The judgment of tbe average reader has bien frequently taxed to determine which one of •11 these dukes, viscounts, noble ladies, hiffa city officials, and masculine and fer-n-\Jqlß* lackey*, has succeeded iv proving herself the filthiest and most m&lt; n.4be*M of all tliis crowd ot adulterers.

JOHN A. LOGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 1 January 1887
JOHN A. LOGAN. The death of Gen. Logan removes from human sight another, and one of the bravest, of the leaders of the battle on the side of the Imperilled Union. It is said. that, at the beginning of Ibe fratricidal strife, the sword of the now famous officer trembled in the balance between the two sections: it was. however, like the question of his age. a t*ubjei-t studiously avoided by the eminent soldier and statesman, and is really, at this late day. a matter of very small account, since his devotion and zeal in behalf of the great cause in which that sword was drawn, have never been denied or doubted. Tata unexpected death is a heavy loss to the Republican party, of which Senator Logan was a bright and shining light. In common with ihe rest of us. Gen. I.ogan had faults—some of which. in his case, were all the more evident because &lt;&gt;f the prominence of his shining virtues; thus, his pre-eminent honesty of purpose and deed, sometimes led to vigorous expres...
