NIGHT BLOOMING CEREUS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
NIGHT BLOOMING CEREUS. There is a flower that blooms by night, When all the land is still, When only nightingales an heard And dews their wine distill. It loveth not the glare cf day, The noise of busy noon, Alone revealing its pure heart Unto the lady moon. When other blossoms lie at rest. It watches like a saint. And all night long It wearies not Until the shadows faint. Let others call it what they may, Hope's star it is to me. That only when the morning comes From its sweet task Is free. Let other flowers win the praise Of laughter, mirth and song. My blossom lights the thorny path Of griefs unhappy throng. And when I find it fast asleep. While suns an shining bright, I know 'twill waken when I dream And guide me through the night. —a O. B. in Chicago News.
THE CRASH OF HEAVY GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
THE CRASH OF HEAVY GUNS. Fearful Strain of the Conenasf on Upon the Nerve* and Ears. The stunning report of each gun as It is fired Is something that a stranger on the deck will long remember. There Is an old saying, "deaf as a post" Now, In the royal navy, this Is changed to "deaf as a post captain." No man can go through a long series of gunnery practices without having his hearing very seriously affected. Some men put cotton wool In their ears, but even this precaution does little to deaden tbe terrible shock. And If the firing of one or two guns has such a shattering power, what would be the effect If tbe whole armament were In action together? It is almost Impossible to conceive the strain upon nerve and senses of the rending concussion. If a visitor watches tbe firing of one of tbe monster 0 Inch guns and then places himself beside one of tbe smaller pieces, the report made by tbe one will not appear much louder than that of tbe other. The extra distance to tbe muzzle of tbe b...
Popping; the Question. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
Popping; the Question. A writer in Lady's Realm says there are certain precautions which all lovers should take when proposing. Never propose, says an old student of woman, when returning from the theater. She will be still under tbe spell of one of the actors, and beside his romantic figure you dwindle Into Insignificance. It is better to propose on the way to the theater or some entertainment. Rather than upset an evening's enjoyment by rejecting your suit, she will accept you. Never, • continues our mentor, propose to a young lady after having a meal with her. Her imagination is chilled by the process of. digestion, while there is nothing that so degrades a man in a girl's eyes as to see him eat a hearty meal. Was it not Charlotte Bronte who lost her admiration for Thackeray after seeing him eat? On the occasion of their first meeting at a dinner party Thackeray took Charlotte Bronte down to dinner. Thackeray was hungry, and as he ate steadily at bis dinner her admiration and awe...
A llnppr Expedient. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
A llnppr Expedient. Some few years back a colonel commanding some marines was much exercised in his mind as to how to deal with two of his men who were continually fighting. Threats, pack drill and even cells were tried, but were of no avail No sooner were they free than they flew at one another and were at it again with worse results than before. At last he hit on a happy expedient. The next time the men were brought before him he set them to clean all the windows in the barracks, one inside, the other out, and neither to go to the next window till the other had finished. The next morning they started, and after glaring at one another for three or four windows the situation became too ludicrous. They both burst out laughing and have been good friends ever since.— London Answers. '

Funny Men. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
Funny Men. The Jests of Heliogabulus were very practical. He was fond of inviting people with some physical deformity to dinner and making Jokes about them. At times he would invite a dozen hunchbacks or a score of squinting ladles or an equal number of baldheads. Once he put a large number of excessively fat people, all very hungry, into a small chamber where dinner was waiting. There was no room to eat it. Another diversion of which he was fond was that of placing his guests on air sofas, so that when they were about to drink he could let the air out and have both sofa and guest collapse. It Is said that Nero, the Roman emperor, liked to "shy" nuts at the bald heads of the praetors who sat below during the performance at the theater, and . they were expected to maintain their baldheaded dignity and refrain from "shying" them back at him.
He UndTEToongh. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
He UndTEToongh. There is a New York physician who takes an active Interest in politics and is popular with the "boys." In spite of his jolly disposition he is an extremely thin man, so thin that many a Joke Is aimed at him. Here Is the latest story they are telling about him: A grocer's boy entered the doctor's office the other day with a basket of fine fruit which some grateful patient had sent to him. The -doctor told the boy to place the basket In a cabinet which stood against the wall. At the same Instant he stepped out of the room, and, going Into an adjoining one, manipulated a contrivance which caused an articulated skeleton within the cabinet, to waggle Its head and limbs in an appalling manner just as the messenger boy opened the door. With a yell of terror the boy fled. When the doctor had enjoyed a hearty laugh/ he picked up a fine apple and followed the boy Into the street to give it to him. "Come here, my boy!" he shouted. "Here's a fine apple for you." "Not on your flf...

MISCELLANEOUS. f' 'EAbTHT \ If they only could, many rich men would erase the W in wealth and write H in its place, and so change wealth into health. It's the saddest thing about riches that in in acquiring them men often ruin their health and at their prime are doomed to live "perked up in a glistering grief and wear a golden sorrow. The trouble is generally with the stomach. In the rash for riches there's been no time for regularity, no consideration of right food. The stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition become diseased and then begins the bitter and varied sufferings of the man with "stomach trouble." Yet this condition can be cured. The stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, can be restored to a normal condition of sound health. Thousands testify that Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery, strengthens the stomach, nourishes the nerves and purifies the blood, that it breaks the bonds of the dyspeptic, and makes him a healthy, happy man. No alcohol whi...

BRYAN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 27 April 1900
BRYAN'S BIRTHDAY. , .. .From the Brooklyn Eagle, a Democratic paper, we take "' the following .unique eulogy of William J. Bryan, which appeared in its- editorial jcolunms. on the morning of Bryan's birthday, about a month ago. It is rather rich reading, especially for Bryan Democrats: • ''This is Mr. Bryan's fortieth birthday. No man so young as he was in 1896 was ever nominated by a great party for President before. George' B. McClellan was thirty-eight, not thirty-six, in 1864. No man was ever nominated before on the carrying power of a single speech. No man of forty ever before faced the practical certainty of a renouiiuation. " No Democratic candidate for president, elected or beaten, ever before received so many votes, or was defeated by so large a popular majority against him. No man was ever before the apparent favorite of every Democrat, in regular relations with the party, who wants to elect him, and of every one, in like relations with it, who wants. to beat him. "No ma...
