THE LOVELIKST I'KTI'RE, [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 6 April 1890
THE LOVELIKST I'KTI'RE, bin M. X&gt; an artist's stndlo, I looked Upon many pictures, Brand and bold. On purple mountains crowned with clouds. And tropical sunsets of crimson and gold. I stood almost entranced before A fairy-like New England scene. A brown road leading far away Through the heart of a forest robed In summer green. I could reel the cool moist air of the woods And hear a wild bird's cry. 1 saw starry blossoiu.4 and nodding ferns. And could hear a brook murmuring by. I turned from the painted canvas and lot A living picture was there. A little maiden, only just seven. With a winsome face most fair. From under her wide felt hat she gave Coqu ettuh glances from sparkling eyes. Her checks were tinted like pint sea shells, ll er eyes were as blue as summer skies. Through a western window a sunbeam stolß And with fond i limn hi rested on her hair. Though each canvas the impress of genius bore. She seemed the loveliest picture there. Denver, Colo.

For Every Girl to lCHmomber. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 6 April 1890
For Every Girl to lCHmomber. I have seen mothers who have sacrificed youth, appearance, health and comfort in the effort to save money to educate and dress their daughters browbeaten, crushed and virtually ignored by their daughters in return for it all. The American girl is taught that she is a young Princess from the cradle to the altar. It is a great misfortune when she forgets that the mother of a Princess must be a Queen, or Queen liegent, and should be so treated.— Klla Wheeler Wilcox in Ladie3' Home Journal. Tho Sonoma County Teachers' Association sent a gift of ?«) to the Roys' and Girls' Aid Society of Sau Francisco.

CHILDREN Are always liable to sudden and severe Colds, to croup, sore throat, lung fever, etc. Remedies, to be effective, must be administered without delay. Nothing is better adapted for such emergencies than Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral. It soothes the inflamed : membrane, promotes expectoration, .relieves coughing, and induces sleep. The prompt uso of tin. medicine has saved innumerable lives, both of young and old. " One of my children had croup. The case was attended by our physician, and was supposed to be well under control. One night I v.as startled by the child's bard breathing, - and on going to it found it "" Strangling. It had nearly ceased to breathe.

AMUSEMENT LOVING PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 6 April 1890
AMUSEMENT LOVING PEOPLE. How Mnch the People of San Francisco Enjoy Dancing. A Brief Mention of Seme of the Host Prominent Social Cub?, Among Which the Names of Nearly 100 Are Given. ITE city of San Francisco might as well be termed "8 city of clubs," for in do part of the Union may a city be named that can boast cf as many associations of this kind— that is, assemblies of persons who meet under certain self-imposed regulations or bylaw*, solely 'on pleasure bent. When ' I say nowhere else, I mean a city having an equal population. The reason of this constant pleasure-seek-inK is derived from many causes. Our climate, perhaps, has the most to do with it, where eight or ten months of the year there is great attraction out of doors, and where the getting from- one place to another is rendered so easy by the splendid street-ear system, which is, Indeed, a consideration with a large class of amuse-ment-loving people. Then, again, our city is so completely cosmopolitan that perhaps the f...
