"FALSE AND APPARENTLY MALICIOUS." [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
" FALSE AND APPARENTLY MALICIOUS." In Its Issue of June 18, The Tribune published an article concerning the Cambridge Electric Light Company, in which the Internal troubles of that organization andjthe notoriously bad service which the company his been giving the city, were briefly set forth. A week later, a card was published in The Tribune, bearing the signatures of President Charles Bullock, Treasurer L. M. Ilannum, and Directors Asa P. Morse and Gustavus Goeppor, characterizing the article as "false and apparently malicious," and giving The Trlbuno much good advice on the manner of conducting its bus! ness. For the sake of setting the matter before our readers with the utmost fairness, we have taken the trouble to call on each of the directors of the Electric Light Company, with the exception of Mr. Goepper, with the request for an interview to be published. Piesldent Bullock cheerfully accorded our representative an Interview, which occupied in type nearly a column of The Tribu...
A SOUND SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
A SOUND SUGGESTION. The Tribuue's suggestion that the present English High School building should be turned over to tho Latin School, and a building be erected near the now public library for the English High School, has met with a very cordial reception. The idea of building a new Latin School building on the lot with the English [school finds few to uphold it, and ought to be dismissed at once. The lot is not large enough for two adequate buildings, and It Is for many reasons unwise to locate the two schools so near together. The additional fact that, the English High Scho &gt;1 already fills the building to its full capacity, allowing no room for the city's growth, makes it clear that additional accommodations In that department must soon be had. All things considered, the case in favor of a new English High School building in the neighborhood of the new library, is a very clear one. The matter should have the attention of the city government at the earliest moment after ...
GET OUT! [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
GET OUT! Vacations need two things to make them successful: First, a complete change. Second, something to do. It is only those who work who can know what a vacation means, and It is only of them that wo speak. A change of air, new scenery and surroundings, a different set of people to observe and talk with—these are of more importance to tired workers than any measure of business success, or any fancied necessity. of remaining in the harness. First of all, for your vacation— and you must lake one, he It ever so brief —get out of your ruts. Oo away. Shut the ledger. Forget the counting room. Drop all thought of dry goods. Close* your ears to the call for copy. O i out. of business for a day or a week or a mouth, as you may be able. Forsake your patients. Lock up your desk. Get out! Change you must have, to get the advantage which vacation involves In lis very essence. This does not necessarily imply a long abience from business.

HE SHOULD BE HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
HE SHOULD BE HANGED. Tho Somervllle Journal expresses Its opinion that tho sentence of tho murderer Nowlin should be commuted to imprisonment for life. "In saying this," continues tho Journal, "we do not plead in extenuation of Nowlin's crime. He deserves lilt most severe punishment, and he should be made an example of to deter others from doing as he has done. If his sentence should bo commuted to Imprisonment for life It should be made without the possibility of a pardon, and he should he made to Undergo the extremest rigor of prison discipline. Wo believe simply that a judicial murder is as demoralizing to the community as any other murder Is, and that an imprisoned murderer undergoes a more severe punishment and serves as a more terrible warning to possible criminals than does the murderer who Is hanged." The Journal undoubtedly exprossos the opinion of many excellent and law-abiding people who shudder at the idea of executing a criminal, and believe that capital punishment shou...

Governor Ames has issued a proclamation in accordance with the resolve'of the legislature, that Massachusetts be properly represented at the centennial celebration of the signing of the constitution of the United States at Philadelphia on the 17th of September, and that the governor be requested to call the attention of the various social, trade, labor and other associations of the State to the approach of this celebration, and to urge upon such associations the acceptance of the Invitation of the citizens of Philadelphia to take part in the processional display. There is no doubt that the old Bay State will do her full share toward making the celebration impressive and successful. Kansas has been a prohibition State for six yoars. How the policy has succeeded, and what the people think of it, is thus set forth by the Topeka Capital: "The fact that Kansas has prospered beyond the greatest expectations of her people, since the saloon was driven from her borders, Is sufficient argumen...
A Bank Manual. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
A Bank Manual. The presentation of a volume containing statistical information by the Maverick National Bank to its patrons and tho representatives of leading financial interests, Is an incident worthy special note, because the quality of the largess is alike characteristic of the giver and valuable to the recipient. We have in distinct remembrance the judicious methods adopted by this institution to inform Investors of Its dealing in government bonds, and how its reputation a a manipulator of those securities was established by its success. In the early days of the appointment of "over nt depositories, a president of a certain bank was asked if it would not be well to announce in the public prints the fact that his was one of the selec-' tlon; "What! advertise a bank?" he exclaimed. "Why no'? Tbe largest bankers advertise; are you more th »n&gt;tliey?" Tbe president of tiie; Maverick Bank was not astounded at the Idea of milking his business understood, and it was a satisfa...
Book-Making Before the Age of Printing. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
Book-Making Before the Age of Printing. Of course tbe Chinese were ahead of Europe. Their chronicles record printing upon silk or col ton in Ihe cen'airy before Christ, paper being attributed lo the first, century after Christ. It is Certain that many hundred years ago they bail begun to put writing on transfer paper, lay Ibis face downward on wood or s'.oiie, rub off ihe Impression or paste on the transparent paper, cut away the wood or stone, and lake an Impression In Ink which duplicated the original. First, probably, they out the letters Into the block, leaving whi i letters on black ground, which method Didol thinks, was known to the Itomaus ami was the process referred to by Pliny; afterward they cut away the block, leaving tin letters raised, to print black on white. This last, process Isaitribilled to Foong-Taou, Chinese minister of state lv ihe tenth century, who was driven lo the Invention by Hie necessity of, getting exact copies of Ills official documents. Indeed, then i...

Among the Books. The Inters'ate Publishing Company has just published in three comely and convenient volumes, a series of Historical Readers, from the pen of Mr. Arthur Oilman of Cambridge. They are designed to present to the minds of the youngest readers, In schools and families, a simple, clear and Interesting account, of the growls) of this nation, and of tbe events that preceded its birth on the continent of America. The three volumes are entitled, respectively, "The Discovery and Explore l ion of America, I'he Colonization of America," and "The Making of the American Nalion." Each is printed in clear type, and on good paper, ami has an excidl nt frontispiece. The idea involved in the series is a very happy one, and we know of no man so well qualified in carry it out successfully as Is Mr. Oilman. In writing for young persons, Mr. Oilman says he feels the necessity of being at once clear, accurate, and concise—which Is exactly what he has succeeded in being. He has used the best...
West Point. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 16 July 1887
West Point. North and east the Point is hemmed In hy the mighty river, west and south by the rock-ribbed Highlands. The plateau, little by little, has been levelled anil graded, until today it is a broad, beautiful, grassgrown plain, bounded on the west by the cosey liouies of the officers and professors, on the south by the stately barracks, the grim, old-fashioned "Academic," the (Jrecian chapel, and the domed turrets of the library. Skirting the precipitous riverbanks, a broad, graded road encloses the plateau on tbe north and east, and others, as level and carefully kept, border it on west and south, ami nearly bisect it along the meridian, Covered with well-cropped turf, the western half of tie "plan" is devoted to iiuantry drills; ihe bait Mies an I the crunching hoofs of the horses are limited to the gravel of the eastern half. All oround are the rocky heights, trimmed with pine and fir and cedar, with here and there a peep at the stony parapet of some old redoubt or battery ...

Speaking of yachting, what does It cost to run a yacht? Well, that depends. The ordinaiy sail-boat (yachtsmen, pardon me; I forgot lhat in the lexicon of ibe sea there's no such thing as sail boat) costs very little to run, perhaps $25 to $50 fur repairs a season, the cost of running being simply repairs, for the crew Is purely voluntary. But take a yacht like many owned by wealthy men, and $600 a month will hardly pay for the running expenses, irrespective of repairs. Your eap'ain or skipper will ask you $100 a month; your mate, $60; your second mate, $41); your boatswain, $35; your seamen, say six of them, $30 apiece. Tben the cook costs $40, and his incidental expenses will add up to $25. Your tablewell, that also depends. If you have company, and much of It, $500 a mouth may not pay the bills, and there are cases upon record where $5000 just did it. The average Cambridge man takes his summer water outing on the harbor and bay steamers, and gets as much open air and water, and ge...
