TALE. The Priest's Bridge, A LEGEND OF MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

TALE. The Priest's Bridge, A LEGEND OF MEXICO. THESE can be little" doubt the holiest priest, the saintliest man, -who ever lived in Mexico, was Juan de Nava. . Indeed, it would be hard to find, in any clime or generation, under what soever conditions, a soiul ofgrfeater purity and self-abnegation, a creature in whom the flesh and its concomitant evils and vanities were more completely subjugated by the domination of a serene and lofty spirit. Juan de Nava was a man of gentle birth and breeding; his right to the title of Don was absolute and a heritage, not casual nor honor ary. He had been reared in affluence, with every advantage of environment and- culture existent in his day; and he had some years attained his majority when he embraced the priestly calling. He entered the clergy with calmness,-deliberation, and system, as he was wont to apply these -traits to every act and situation; and none ever knew what motives impelled him-whether strong religious con victions and irresisti...

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

POPULAR 8C1ENCE. Paper is now used in the construction of chimneys. It is made into blocks, which are joined with cement. A writer in the American Machinist [recom mends relieving leather belts from strain when they are not in use, and asserts that a belt thus used will be in good condition when one constantly strained shall be worn out. Experiments are being: made on Prussian railroads with axle-boxes fitted with bearings of vegetable parchment in-, place of brass. The claim is made that these compressed paper bearings make a tough material that is superior to metal. Phrodene is a new liquid which renders wood, textile fabrics, paper and such in flammable materials fire-proof. The liquid is made of all colors, so as to be used as a substitute for paint; and it is said to render houses and other out buildings fire-proof. The smallest circular saw in use is one used in slitting gold pens. It is a disc about the size of a 5 cent piece and has the thickness of ordinary paper. Its veloc...

VARIETIES. Cursed by Drink, SAD FATE OF A MINISTER'S DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

VARIETIES. Cursed by Drink, SAD TATE OF A MINISTEB'S DAUGHTER. The following story will doubtless read to many of the GhronicleJs readers like & xe- ' Tamped -work of fiction, filled in with a touch or two of local colour, but each is in no sense ; the-case.' Every word is {based on facts; which ail too really have occurred. The' names of those concerned are withheld Bolely out. of consideration for their many friends. They are well known and come from families which pride themselves on their names aristocratic lineage. In one of the little towns which fringe tne foothills that lie along the eastern border of the bay there has lived for many years an Episcopal clergyman with his wife and small family of talented and beautiful daughters. No one would judge from the actions of this quiet, dignified old man that in his youth he had been a devotee at the shrine of Bacchus and had led as a young man the easy, reck less life of a man about town.. Snch, how ever, is the fact, known...

ODDS AND ENDS [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

ODDS AND ENDS Slander, like mud, dries and falls off. There is no limit to the age at which a man may make a fool of himself. Credulous men are the prey of crafty ones. Modesty and humility are the sobriety of the mind. Measure thy cloth ten times, for thou canst but cut it once. He who says what he likes may hear what he does not like. Think well over your important steps in life, and, having made ap your mind, never look behind. Thou who wonldst give, give quickly. In the grave thy loved one »can receive no kindness. Give no reins to your inflamed passions; take time and a little delay. Impetuoueity manages all things badly. What is liberty without wisdom and with out virtue? It is the greatest of all evils; for it is folly, vice and madness, without tuition or restraint. Frugality does not imply parsimony any more than extravagance comprehends gen erosity. Hair-brushes should be washed at least once a week, using for that purpose soda in stead of soap, and taking care not to wet ...

A German Co-Operative Community. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

A German Co-Operative Community. The Amana Community in Iowa, including a population of about 2,000, is'an interesting illustration of the success of co-operative effort among thrifty Germans. The settle ment was began in 1855, and the colony now owns 26,000 acres of land. The land forms a single township and the people are grouped in seven villages. Each village is a social and industrial unit, and has a definite area assigned to it for cultivation and pasturage. The government of the colony affairs, as a whole, is invested in a Board of thirteen Trustees, while each village has its Board of Elders, varying in number from seven in the smallest to eighteen in the largest. The central institution in each village is the 'store,' which is a large general retail establishment carrying grocer ies, drugs, dry goods, clothing, hats and caps, hardware, etc. Its book-keeping is very elaborate, for, except in dealings with outsiders, the colonists do not ordinarily use money. Everything is do...

FICTION. THE LAKE-BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

FICTION. THE LAKE-BABY. The Lake of Karka is large; a grey sheet of dow, scarcely rippling water, bordered all around -with sedgy marshes; and back of these waste lands, {he vivid green, of the silver-boled birches, and the sombre verdure of the aromatic pines. It is a country of great space all about the Lake of Karka, a lonely, livid land, that looks as if it were silently pulsating with the hope and expectation of humanity to crowd, and till, and sow, and reap its meagre soil. To be sure, there is the small village of Oloi on the eastern shore of the lake; a handful of pink and green houses surrounded by deep son meadows and rough rail fences; tine oat-fields eloping down to the sluggish water's edge, and. wind blofen, lying over with, fresh kisses for the little lapping waves. On a sandy hillock stands the ohurch too, the church of St. Isaac, with its five gilded, pear- shaped cupolas, that sparkle in the sunshine; and within, its two splendid pillars of malachite on either side...

Correspondence. We do net necessarily endorse the opinions of oar correspondents.-ED.] QUESTIONABLE AMUSEMENTS THE BEY. J. BLACKET IN BEPLT. TO THB EDITOR. Sis,- I am much obliged to Mr Touchell for his friendly criticisms on the sermon re ported in your columns. Having done me the honor of publishing his name, the letter deserves the courtesy of a reply. There are some men-men of little mental or moral culture-who can freely indulge in vituper ation behind the cover of a "nom de plume" hut to that class of persons your correspon dent does not belong. In newspaper corres pondence I have always found it to be an advantage to keep to the point. The sub- ! ject of the sermon was- "Questionable ' Amusements, and the Christian's duty in relation to them,*" The two propositions laid down were-1. That the modern dance, the theatre, and the racecourse have' a tendency to evil. 2. That Christian people should in no way support them. If any person wishes to debate the matter then he must try....

Mildewed cloth should be soaked in but termilk, and afterward spread on the grass in the faun* Cook oatmeal in a doable boiler, or in a covered pail set in a kettle of water. Be sure to salt it. "Wetting a stiff hair-brush with aromatic vinegar just before using is equally good for it and ite owner. To wash castor bottles, put thera one-third full of rice, and fill up with water; shake thoroughly. For canker sore month, one tablespoonful of borax dissolved in half a pint of water is excellent used as a wash.

Practical Hints on Poultry-Raising. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

Practical Hints on Poultry-Raising. Hearing of a hennery, or, as it is generally called in this country, a chicken ranch, and knowing by experience that chickens and eggs are scarce and costly in this land of fruits, a reporter called on Thomas Twambly, in Orange, North Grlassel street, to learn something abont chickens and eggs, and what he knew about raising them in this country. Mr. Twambly is a free talker, and understands the poultry business thoroughly. He has a poultry yard on the south side of Chapman avenue, east of the Santiago river. This seemed to us an odd place to establish a business of any kind, bu Mr. Twambly says this is a good locatio for such an industry. The sandy soil, gravel and little stones insure a healthy yard for the chicken, and the proximity (f water pleases the duck, and any trees, hemp, or vegetation desired, can be grown on the soil. This seetned reasonable to us and we gave in to the philosophy of this teaching and said with the bustling IH'le man, ...

Daring the morning heavy rain fell and all day a fierce triad blew from the west. Un dismayed by the elements, however, the ball was kicked off at about 3 p.m. the Orroroo team (red and blacks) having the advantage of the wind that was blowing. Time after time the red and blacks assailed the goal of the local men bat owing to the plucky way in whioh the latter defended their citadel the first quarter ended without even a behind being kicked. When the ends were changed it was thought that from the way in which the Peteraburgs had been playing that goals would come fast and fuxioni; but those who thought BO were doomed for disappointment as in spite of all the efforts that .were put forth naif time arrived with only 3 behinds to the cre...

Wine-Making without Grapes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

Wine-Making: without Crapes. French wine merchants who complain of the manufactures of Hamburg champagne and other German imitations of the juice of the grape sold under Re names of noted French vintages, have evidently little to learn in the art of adulteration. Two of these gentlemen, named Linden and Margot, have just been tried for selling spurious wines, through commercial brokers, in public sales as Ma$on, St. Julien, St. Emilion, etc. A public analyst gave evidence that the wines were not wine at all; they were a composition made with an infusion of dried raisins, colored with extract of coal tax. The defendants pleaded that they had sold the wines as chey received them, and that the persons who had consigned the wines to them were well-known. They also called as witnesses a number of wine shop keepers, who declared that as wines go the defendants' wine was not worse than any other, on which the judge remarked that it was not saying much for the articles they sold. Some purch...

The German Forage Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

The German Forage Plant. Those who are interested in securing a good forage grass for the foothills will be glad to read the following from the Carson Appeal: The more the Appeal investigates the subject of espercet, the more convincing becomcs the proofthatitis the grand fodder plant of Ne vada. Yesterday it had an interview with George Rammelskamp, who has been for fourteen years the foreman of the Sutro Tunnel ranch. Knowing that he had been a practical rancher in Germany, the writer asked him to tell what he knew about espercet. ' I know all about the grass,' said Mr. Rammelskamp. ' I have raised a great deal of it in Germany. It is the principal fodder grass of the country. Yet I would hardly call it a grass, but rather a weed. It grows rank and quick, will do without irrigation, seeds down rapidly and is perennial. It will grow on the worst land you can find in this State. I have seen it scattered on land that seemed to be nothing but grit. It was worse than sandy land; regula...

Hot Water for Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

Hot Water for Plants. It is a fortunate circumstance that a plant will endure a scalding heat that is fatal to moat of its minute enemies. Water heated to the boiling point, poured copiously over the stem of an enfeebled peach tree, and allowed to stand about its collar, will often have the happiest restorative effects. Tre°s showing every symptom of the yellows have often been rendered luxuriantly green and thrifty again by this simple means. The heat is, presumably, too much, for the fungus which had infested the vital layers of the tree, immediately beneath the outer bark. The London florists recommend the use of hot water, up to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, as a remedy when plants are sickly, owing to the soil souring-the acid absorbed by the roots acting as a poison. The usual resort is to the troublesome job of repotting. "When this is not necessary for any other, it is much simpler to pour hot water freely through the stirred soil. It will presently come through tinged with brown....

A Point for Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 29 June 1888

A Point for Irrigation. Tiie roots of all trees and plants have myriad months, bat these months do not eat. No plant can digest a particle of solid food. The roots simply drink, and in doing so they take up food that water has dissolved from the soil. It matters not how rich the soil may be; without moisture nothing can grow upon it. This is one of the simplest of facts kaown to botanists and embraces the whole philosophy of irrigation. If everybody would bear it in mind one of the chief preju dices against irrigation would be swept away.
