Electrifying Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 13 April 1889
Electrifying Animals. Some interesting experiments havo been mado lately in electrifying the wild beasts of a menagerie in winter Sussex Street, quarters at Bridgeport, Conn. A sav age baboon was tied after a desperate struggle ; a sponge at tho end of a wire was put into his mouth, and another wiro tied to ono of his paws. A current of two colls maddened the beast, and tho irritation increased until twenty eight cells wero used, whon it grew loss. When forty colls wore applied the animal became lethargic, and very much like a man ovcrcomo with drink. Tho resistance was 8,000 ohms, a sur prisingly large figure. After his re lease the baboon became furious with rage. Small monkeys acted very much like children whon electrified. When the current struck thorn they screamed as if in agony ; when tho current was withdrawn thoj' looked puzzled. One monkey tore the sponge apart as though looking for the current inside, or to find whac had bitten him. A tamo seal was made very vicious, and ...
Character of Gordon. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 13 April 1889
Character of Gordon. Cioitnox was no 'saint' in tho usual meaning which tho world attaches to the name. He whs utterly removed from tho class of religious Church Mili tant who, ;is passing residents in some French or Italian city, are prone to hurl their hymns on the Sabbath morning at tho heads of tho native heretics ; neither hud ho the smallest fellowship with another largo class of persons who would divide religion into two parts — tho muscular and the Methodist, one half John Bull and the other John Knox. Absolutely without a parallel in our modern lifo, Gordon stands out the foremost mau o£ action of our time and nation, whoso ruling principle was Delivered faitli and good works. No gloomy faith, no exulted senso of solfconfi denco, no mocking of tho boliof of others, no separation of his sonso of God from the every- day work to which his hand has to be put ; no leaving of religion at tho church-door as a garb to bo put on going in and taken olf com ing out ; but a faith which...

The Gospel of Despair. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 13 April 1889
The Gospel of Despair. Pessimism is scientifically defined as the gospel of despnir, which toadies that tlio pains of life outweigh its pleasures ; that the fate of man is to struggle laboriously by paths that aro distressiiiff to ends that aro unsatis fying, and that it is tho unhappy cons titution of humanity to bo unconscious of its happiness, but keenly alive to its misery. It points to no land of promise the prospect of whoso milk and honey may inspirit the weary travellers through tho wilderness ; it sings no preans over a coming era of freedom, plenty, en light enmont, and peace; it bluntly in forms humanity that its lot is evil ; that its best efforts will never achievo aught but somo trifling mitigation of its suffering's, and that there is hope neither in the future of tho race nor beyond tho grave.

"Should Women Propose?" [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 13 April 1889
' Should Women Propose ? ' Replying to the question, 'Should women proposo marriage ? ' Dr. Tol mage answered, ' AVhy, you aro cen turies too late in asking that question ! Women always have proposed and always will propose. Words are very weak things compared to woman's affa bility and ioveliness. The most splen uici tiling on eartn is a goou woman, and when, with all her attractiveness, she makes up hor mind that it would be well for her to be the wife of some good man, and that it would be equally well for him, she captures him as easily as a regiment captures one corporal. It does not make any difference whether her tongue proposes or not. Her eyes proposo, her smile proposes. Until a man gets from a woman a proposition of that style he had better not make a proposition of his own, unless he wants to be mado to feel ridiculous all his life time.'
