Poetry. FAIR COLORADO. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 21 May 1887
Poetry. FAIR COLORADO. Talr Colorado! To thy sunny skies Thy mountain peaks majestically rise. Thy mighty plain* stretch forth on erery side. Like some raat ocean, Urn 11 lees and wide. Pare ia the air that o'er thy land doth blow. Blight ia thy .an that shines on dale ami lea. Bine are thy skies that softly come and go. And Nature la, indeed, in lore with thee. What grandeur Ilea within thy mountain, raat, That here alone hare stood for age* past. Proudly .rise their massive peaks of atone, From which both far aad wide are shadows thrown. Their hoary heads, capped with eternal snow, Forever glisten neath thy brilliant sun; Majestic splendor* in their faces glow, Their fame throughout the universe bas run. Great treasures, hidden, lie beneath thy walls. That forth from every clime tbe seeker calls, And king and prince, and young men snd th. old, Stretch forth their hand*; to grasp thy glittering gold. Riches and wealth and gems and jewels rare. Thou gi vest even with a generous hand...
Queer Trinkets. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 21 May 1887
Queer Trinkets. It is some years since the jewelers made the lucky pig a popular trinket. Everyone for a time wore lucky pigs as charms, bangles and what not. When pork became a surfeit the elephant took its place. Men dangled them at their watch chains and women wore them in their ears. They were made into pins and pendants, and even adapted to the embellishment of Anger rings and bracelets. The eye of destiny—an Egyptian emblem Was the next fad. Xow it is a mouse. Mouse jewelry is already the go in Loudon and Paris, and is commencing to And favor here. And women who stand most in dread of the little, living beast will do him honor in effigy for fashion sake. What with pigs aud elephants and mice, the adaptation to the animal kingdom to decorative purposes is well begun. Before the work is done we shall be able to muster a complete menagerie in a collection of the average belle's jewelry. Some very queer charms have come into vogue lately, in the shape of South American beetles. Th...

After due deliberation and estimation he said slowly : --That hogs weighs exactly two —hundred—aud —sixty — one—pounds—and—a—iiuarter." The hog was placed upon the scales. It weighed 2'&gt; l .'*-)— half a pound over Mr. Sibley's guess. Me was thoroughly disgusted, and said: "How could 1 have been so much mistaken. Presently hieyes lighted up with triumph, as he detected a stone in the hog's mouth designed to keep the jaws distended while the carcass was being dressed. "Take out that plug." said he. "and you will find that i! weighs precisely half a pound." "And it did." said the I'nion. "to a grain."

Wisdom Behind the Counter. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 21 May 1887
Wisdom Behind the Counter. '•Some one told me that a smile would go a long way toward helping me become a successful saleswoman," said a girl to whom store life is yet new, "and I have smiled and smiled until I don't think I could look solemn at the funeral of my best friend. I actually giin from morning till night, and I think I will have to give my mouth it rest if 1 don't sell a dollar's worth the rest of the day. 1 came here with the determination of being good natured and pleasant to every one, no matter how cranky a customer I might have, but really it is harder work than I thought. Still I am sure good nature pays, and I don't know of any position that requires more patience thau that of a saleswoman. A rather stupid girl with a sweet, even disposition is more apt to succeed than a brighter girl who is quick tempered. 1 mean to earn gj'o a week some day if I "wear out my mouth smiling.

LOST PUBLIC MEN. What the Death ... Many Great Men Means-Are We As a Nation in Danger? "America is losing its prominent men very last," was the remark of a well known Englishman who is now visiting this country, and he was right. Sumner Wihion, Phillips. Washburn. Carpenter and a host of others have departed, and John A. Logan has just passed away. But haS it never occurred to the reader that the cause of the deaths of these public men was in every case the same ! And lias it occurred to you that Manning. Butler. Blame and a host of others are treading tlie same sad road : The great American scourge, to-day, is kidney disease and it is by no means confined to • public men. Thousands of men whom we see •every day have inherited it from their parents and do not know it. Innumerable women who are delicate are afflicted with it at this moment, and think it is simply "weakness." Little children whose kidne's* have been injured by scarlet fever are suffering from it, usually unknown to th...
