Doesn't Travel For Fun. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 20 April 1900
Doesn't Travel For Fun. ; Far from being the great autocrat, the arbiter of things of magnitude, the president of a railway system, be ii great or small. Is a dealer In trifles, with a consideration for everything. Every accident large or small; every occurrence by which the road is to lose a dollar or to make a dollar, comes tc the notice of the president The successful head of a railroad is the one who considers the details. ' He Is the man who makes the profits, and he ia the man who has to face the music at the directors' meeting. I When you see the bright smooth running traveling palaces of the rallr way president trailing along behind the long string of passenger coaches, you can be safe In the opinion that the occupant has not the softest snap on earth. You can also rest assured that if he is a success in his sphere he is not traveling for fun.— Omaha WorldHerald.

A Model of Joy. ' The artist placed the easel In front of his model and worked away rapidly on his allegorical picture of "Joy."

I am going to get it for you." "Golly!" And the picture was a magnificent success.— Chicago Tribune.

'That Is because you have never traveled In the United States. The men there are so intelligent .v&gt;d patriotic that they do not require The services of our sex as an educating force." —Saturday Evening Post

The Bottle at Ship Launches. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 20 April 1900
The Bottle at Ship Launches. Down to Charles ll's time It was customary to name and baptize a ship after she was launched, sometimes a week or two after. The old Tudor method used for men-of-war was still in use. Pepys' "Diary", shows that. The ship was safely got afloat after which some high personage went on board with a special silver "standing cup," or "flaggon" of wine, out of which he drank, naming the ship and pouring a libation on the quarter deck. The cup was then generally given to the dockyard shipwright as a memento. When did the present usage of naming and baptizing a ship before she is sent afloat come In? 1 trace. the last explicit mention of the old method to 166-1, when the Royal Katherine was launched (see Pepys). The first mention of smashing a bottle of wine on the bows of an English man-of-war that 1 have found Is In a contemporary newspaper cutting of May, 1780, describing the christening of H. M. S. Magnanime at Deptford, but nothing is hinted that It was then...
To Fly In loir Dreams. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 20 April 1900
To Fly In loir Dreams. There Is a peculiarity about the flying dream that seems to be constant. Of all those whom I asked about the matter and 'who are conscious of the flying dream at all not one has ever known himself to make any high flights In his dreams. One always flies low, with a skimming manner, slightly, but only slightly, above the beads of pedestrians. ' And one's critical attitude in a dream toward one's own performance is always interesting to note, both in regard to this particular class of dream and e»en more toward one of the other classes. It is an attitude that Is well brought out in "Alice In Wonderland," where Alice Is made to exclaim or to think while she is falling, "How brave they wIU all think it of me at home not to mind a great fall like this!"— Longman's.
