How it is Done. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

How it is Done. Speaking with a young lady, a gentleman mentioned that he had failed to keep abreast of the scieutific advance of the age. " For instance," he said, " I don't know at all how the incandescent electric light which is now used in some buildings and railway cars is produced." " Oh, it's very simple," said the lady. "You just turn a button and the light appears at once."

Baked Monkey. THE STRANGE DELICACY EATEN BY THE NATIVES OF SPANISH HONDURAS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Baked Monkey. THE STBANGE DELICACY EATEN BY THE NATIVES OF SPANISH HONDURAS. In Spanish Honduras the dish of ii0uar is baked monkey, and sweeter meat you could not imagine. These monkeys live up in the branches of trees and on the vines; their feet never touch the earth beneath them, and they live on the choicest nuts and fruits. No chicken was ever so sweet and tender as baked monkey. I do confess, though, that on one of the last occasions of my dining in Honduras I did not feel that all was well, when at the end of the meal I found I had stuffed myself with baked lizard. Of course, there is nothing wrong with the lizard, except our petty "prejudices. It tasted splendidly, but when at last I saw the big, scaly leg and the claw of the lizard, I don't think I liked it.

The Night the Baby Came. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Tlie Night tlie llaliy Came. One stormy night about nine months ago a little girl came into a family up town where there was already a boy three or four years old. One bad evening this week the father and mother were going out and the boy wanted to go along and take the baby. To this the mother objected strenuously, and for a final argument she said: ' But, my son, don't you know wo can't take little sister out such a stormy night as this?' 'Well, I don't care,' he replied. ' It was a good deal stormier than this the night she came here.'

Kentucky Kisses. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Kentucky Kisses. Outside those kisses bestowed by affection ate relatives, there can be but three recog nised classes of the genus kiss, as viewed from % male standpoint. The first comes upon your lips as if they were touched by a smoothly planed, cool, and insensate board, without animation, unproductive of any agreeable sensation whatever, and not worth being garnered with the heart's mementos of golden, happy hours. The second is a gentle, velvety kiss, sweet and pleasant, but vexatiously unsatisfying to the ardent nature, and but little more pro nounced than a fascinating cousin would likely bestow. The third is such as coral, tempting, passionate lips bestow, for about ten minutes on your lips-" a lingering sweetness long drawn out" that not only steals your breath, but seems to be drawing your very soul from out of your body. A fellow may forget his mother-and about the time he is harvesting such a kiss he is sure to forget her-but the recollections of that un dwarfed honest k...

Death to Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Death to Dogs. ' The friend of man,' as somebody called the dog, appears to be threatened with ex termination in France. The last sitting of the Academy of Science in Paris was wholly taken up with him, in connection with the great question of hydrophobia. Several learned professors held forth, and in the end resolutions were passed-first, that every dog should wear a medal attesting that his master had duly paid the canine *a.-x-; and secondly, that no dog should be allowed abroad with out a muzzle. All dogs found without the medal should be doomed to death. It is esti mated that this would lead to a hecatomb of 50,000 dogs. The speakers contended that it was only by such measures that hydrophobia could be effectually suppressed. It was stated in countries where they were carried out-Bavaria f jr example-hydrophobia had almost entirely disappeared.

ORIGINAL STORY. For Lack of Gold. CHAPTEB VII.—TRUE OR FALSE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

ORIGINAL STORY. For Lack of Gold. BY M. B. SIMMONS. CHAPTEB VII.-TETJE OE FALSE. Though Horace remained in town, he felt a feverish impatience to retdcn to the little town of W It was hot, and the roads ?were dusty, -which did not improve his tem per. His companions often wondered what was up, whether he and the haughty Miss Drew had managed to quarrel after all these . years of calm indifference, or if his creditors pressed and worried Mm for their trifles. He spent money like so much water, gave suppers and card parties enough for two men, and frequented the theatres and other places of amusement; but the demon of dissatisfaction followed in Ms footsteps and gave him no jest, night or day. lii these gay resorts he thought only of Margery, and heard her voice or laugh in every brown-haired girl who crossed his path While he ate out his heart with longings after her, she was nursing her wrongs at the farm in all the utter abandonment of a girl's first Borrow. That she now thought th...

GHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

GHAPTEB Y1U On the t reniog before Horace's wedding day, Margery sat with her azure and gold ring in her^ hand; she was so soon to part with it, the only thing which now remained of Horace, and in the morning that would be gone too. Her mother had missed her smile and laugh. Margery was changed, yet she saw no reason for it, and did not question her; she performed her light tasks about the house in silence, but her mother was often busy or else tired, and loved quiet and order at all times. As she thus sat absorbed in her own sad reflections, a small boy ran swiftly up to her and diopped a tiny three-cornered note into her lap. She started, and looked up in time to see the boy again turn to her a small saucy face full of laughter, as he held up in one hand a silver coin. Margery knew who had sent the note, and her fiugera trembled as she picked it up, but they did so more from fear than shame. Who might not see the boy who had brought it ? Ho sir unwise of Horace to act so? She look...

Electric Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Electric Woman. A curious communication of particular interest to both sexes has just been made by M. Fere to the French Society ol Biology. The doctor has discovered an electric woman! The name and,address of this pheomenon are not given, probably to avoid her being" got hold of by some enterprising Barnum. It a-ppears that both her hair and body emit electric sparks. The electricity is more visible when the hair is combed. The hair then stands on an end. When she puts on her underclothing its contact with her skin first produces a crepitation, then the clothes adhere as it were to the body, and finally her movements are partly paralyzed. These phenomena are particularly observable during dry and frosty weather. The electric tension also increases under the influence of emotions -such, for example, as the effect of music, which augments the crepitation. This extraordinary creature, however, is not unique. Dr. Ijegue mentioned the case of a woman who during an aurora borealis was su...

FARM AND GARDEN Can it be True? [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

FARM AND GARDEN Can it lie True? Elwood Cooper, the successful olive-grower of Santa Barbara county, stated recently at a fruit-growers' meeting, that an olive orch ard no more than seven years old from the cutting'yielded him at the rate of ten bottles , to the tree. This oil sells readily at §2 a bottle. "When one begins to calculate the receipts and probable profits of say a twenty acre olive orcharion this basis he stumbles against some figWes that are somewhat stag gering even in ti® land of large profits-on paper. Suppose that there are eight trees to the acre, this the twenty acres. At ten bottle to the acre would give 1600 as to number on tree there would be 16,000 bottles, and at §2 to the bottle there would be a gross income of §32,000. Allowing half of this for expense, and there would still remain the tidy sum of $16,000 as the net return. It hardly seems probable that any such profit as this can actually be realized from any sort of crop that can be cultivated. Yet Mr. ...

Hidden money. How PEOPLE OF VARIOUS NATIONS CONCEAL THEIR COIN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

Hidden money. How PEOPLE OF VAEIOTJS NATIONS CONCEAL THEIB Com. The peculiarities of the people of different nationalities in their way of carrying money formed of topic of conversation at Castle Garden the other day. " Most of the English immigrants," said one of the money changers, " carry their coin in a small case in which their sovereigns or shillings fit snugly, and have the case attached to a chain, which they keep in a pocket as they would a watch. An Irishman always has his little canvas bag in which he keeps gold, silver and notes all together. But a great many of the Irish girls have their sovereigns rolled up and sewed on the inside of their, dress, very frequently, too, inside of their corsets, and often have to borrow a pen-knife to cut them out when they come to get them changed. " I have seen some old Germans who would pull off from around their body a belt that I am sure must have cost 40 or 50 marks, and fish Horn it 3 or 4 marks in silver to have changed. The Fren...

THE PETERSBURG INSTITUTE TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

THE PETERSBURG INSTITUTE TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-For some considerable time subscribers to the Institute have been loudly complaining about the scarcity of reading matter supplied by the com mittee. Strangers have dropped in, and even the daily papers were con spicuous by their absence. We have not far to search to find a remedy for all this, In a few words, an energetic secretary and a good working com mittee would go far to suppress all the complaints. The Petersburg Institute has been rather unfortunate in the past in the lack of these two important factors for making Institutes a success. The present committee are deser ving of the severest censure for their laxity in attending to, their duties. Upon making enquires I find that some months ago a Treasurer of the fund was found in our I worthy Mayor-and owing to the dis courteous treatment received at the hands of the secretary he has tendered his resignation. During the whole time he held office he has never had one bronze copper ha...

French Authors on International Copyright. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 8 June 1888

French Authors on International Copyright. Galignani lias been, collecting the views of some of the leading French writers of the day on the copyright question. The two who write most concisely on the subjects are MM. Alphonse Karr and Zola. The latter remarks that he has ' no overweening tender ness for the Americans, who not only trans late my works in an ignoble manner, but rob me with downright impudence.' M. Karr's statement of the remedy is equally to the point. He proposes a bill of a single clause-namely,-' Literary property is pro perty.' This new kind of property once legally recognised and sanctioned, every literary or artistic production ig brought within the scope of the laws and regulations at present existing for the protection of property in general. What would be more simple, what more easy to prescribe, than thisP Among the other writers whose views have been elicited by Galiguani, M. Emile Angier says:-4Now, when America, in buying French plays, lays down as a con...
