Mexico’* Indian Women. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
Mexico’* Indian Women. The beauty of Indian women Is one of the charms of Mexico. In the capital, where the Indian has degenerated through poverty and menial service, it is less to be remarked than in the smaller towns and in the country. But the beautiful faces one takes in memory away from Mexico are those of Indian women. Fine eyes are universal and, what one hardly expects, fine features, according to Caucasian standards —broad brows, straight noses, well-formed mouths and chins full but not gross or heavy. The expression is very generally intelligent, and often one is struck, both in Indian men and women, with the nobility and refinement of the countenance. One frequently sees types among the peons that seem to belong to some highly civilized ancient caste —an Egyptian priest of royal blood, a Roman centurion, an Aztec Emperor. The women are'- gently lovely where they are beautiful, and the men at their best in carriage, in manners and in countenance are strikingly like the ver...
On the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
On the Road. “Guests without baggage are required to pay in advance,” significantly remarked the new clerk at the hotel. “How much baggage is required?” asked the plainly dressed traveler, who was signing his name in the register. “Something more than that little old valise.” “Well, I have thirty-six cars of baggage, but it won’t be here till Thursday of next week.” “Thirty-six cars of baggage? What kind?” “Merely a circus and menagerie I happen to own.” “Oh, I beg your pardon!”

A “Loonl” Title. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
A “Loonl” Title. The American fondness for I ities has caused considerable amusement across the water. The use of unauthorized appellations is passing, and unprofessional colonels, majors and doctors do not receive the respect that their sham title would demand. “We have become a more cultivated people,’’ says Judge Gray, in the Washington Star, “and we have learned to value titles at their real worth. “In the past it was different. Take my own title of Judge, for Instance. I was traveling in the country in my youth, and one day at a hotel table there sat beside me a man whom everyone addressed ns ‘Judge.’ “When he got up and went away I said to my neighbor on the other side : “ Ts that gentleman a United States Hidge or a local Judge?’ “‘He’s a local Judge, sir,’ was the reply. ‘He was judge of a boss-race last week.’ ”

Just as the sun shines brighter after a shower, so Old Gilt Edge Whiskey tastes better after other ordinary brands. Cream kept too long may become bitter and he full of white flakes. Mothers will find Mrs. Winslow's Soothln&gt; Syrup the best remedy to use for their chil area during the teething period. Get your breeding pens ready for the spring eggs for hatching.
Outspoken. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
Outspoken. A French marquise whose country house is crowded with guests during the hunting season hit upon the original idea of placing a register at the disposal of her visitors, in which to record their desires and criticisms. The pages of the richly bound book soon began to be covered with notes such as; “Count de R still owes 25 louis; be knows to whom.” “The green peas yesterday were burned.” “Baroness M flirts; unfortunately, not with me.” The marquise has withdrawn the register.—Cri de Paris.

WALL PAPEB ADVICE [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
WALL PAPEB ADVICE If possible, a hall paper should have a figured base. Dark green, mustard and terra cotta are the most desirable colors. Remember that rooms with low ceilings look higher with striped walls. In a bedroom a plain paper on the celling Is more restful to the eyes. If the furniture coverings are plain, sometimes a large-figured paper is a good background. A room facing the south demands pale blue, violet or green on Its walls, to prevent a glare. Engravings show better against a dull tone plain paper, preferably red, terra cotta, mustard or olive green. A room facing the north should have yellow or pink tones on the walls to lighten and warm Its somber aspect. A plain pale-tinted paper Is apt to fade when exposed to the sun. In this case a white ground with colored flowers Is better. If the furniture covering and the carpet both have large patterns over them, select a plain wall paper of a harmonizing shade. A. large-patterned paper makes a small room look smaller. A s...
