A WALTZ. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

A WALTZ. Delicate gaiety, Strains of a violin; Graceful steps begin Roses at >er waste ! Clouds of sparhl'ng lighf, "Whispers of lovers alone As the couples drift one by one In the golden sheen of the ball. Alone in the happy crowd Each pair glides past each pair; Delicate strains of an air; Rainbow "gaiety; Pride of the moment throbs, Smiles on the youthful cheek, Fearing no ill-wind's freak, Warm in the heart of the waltz ; Moving like melody, Flowing in light audglec-, Young as the May is she, Strong as the June I am. -Rose Hawthorne Lalhrap.

' Easily,' replied one who in his younger days had played seme important games of poker. ' I know a man wlioae income is §70 a day and you will admit that you rarely see him with a dollar. He gets rid of his money some way,' said a gentleman in the group. ' I know a man,' said another, * who is worth §50,000 in cool cash, and it is his boast that he lives on $95 a month, and yet there are four or five in the family.1 Must be ppetty close,' observed ene.

Fun on The Beach. TWO DUDES SHOCK THE LADIES' MODESTY AND SUFFER FOR IT. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

Fan en TSie Iteacli. Two DTFDES SHOCK THE LADIES' MODESTY AMD SUFFER FOR IT. Three young dudes from San Jose ap peared on the beach at Camp Capitola Sunday during the time the greatest crowd was watching the bathers and, apparently uncon scious of their proximity to another living soul they began to undress on the sand near the water's edge, surrounded by fair maidens and comely matrons. The young men continued their undressing, still oblivious ofths fact that a single human eye was upon them, and when tlieife." undergarments -were reached the afore said fair maidens and comely matrons hied away from the scene of the insnlt with screams of modesty. When the undressing was finished, however, the fact was developed that the three joking bloods from across the mouiiijaias had given, the sensitive nerves of the ladies a severe shock by a very peculiar and original sell, as they had no bathing guite. The trio then went into the water and sported abaut &sr a long tiise in the high...

PERSONALITIES. - Before ho discovered tho cholera nricrobs, Robert Eoch was known simply as Dr. Koch. Now lie is Herr Geheimer medicinal-Bath Professor Doctor Robert Koch. The rumor that Prince Albert Victor, the heir-apparent, is to marry the Princess of Anhalt-Dessau, is revived in consequence of the Princess of "Wales, his mother, having made a special visit to Dessau to see the young woman. It would be a good marriage for the Prince, as the girl is one of the richest heiresses in Europe, fairly good-look ing, of genial disposition, and able to play the banjo ! When Phil Armour, tho great Chicago pork-paeker, goes on a journey he greases hi3 way as no other millionaire in the country does. He goes to New York by the Vander bili roads on one of the vestibule trains, and gives the engineer, conductor, and Wagner conductor each a five-dollar note.

Are Tea and Coffee Food? [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

Are Tea and Coffee Food? Tea and coffee are not foods ia llie sense in which we use the word. They contain, it is true, veiy small quantities of materials similar to the nutriments of ordinary food, hot so few of theae get into the decoctions which we drink that they are not worth tak ing into account. The aroma of the tea and coffee is mainly, and the taste largely, due to minute quanti ties of oily substances-essential oils, as they are c&Hed. The effect of tea and coffee upon the nerves and brain seems to be chiefly due to a substance called caffein when it coraes from coffee, and then when, it comes from tea. It is the same chemical compound in both and belongs to the class called alkaloids. Like the extractives of meat, it has3 in moderate quantities, an invigorating effect, and may at times aid digestion. The expression which long usage has ap plied to tea and coffee, ' The cups that cheer but not inebriate.' is a true statement of fact. Tea contains tannic acid, or ta...

VARIETIES. Quaint old st. Pierre. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

VARIETIES. Quaint old st. Pierre. We are asliore in St. Pierre, the quaint est, queerest and the prettiest withal among the West Indian cities-It is stonebuilt and stone-flagged, with very narrow streets, wood en awnings, iron balconies, and peaked roofs of red tile pierced by gabled dormers. Most of the buildings are painted in a clear pale yellow tone, which contrasts deligtfully with the burning blue ribbon of tropical sky above, and no street is absolutely level. Nearly all of ihem climb hills descend into hollows, curve, twist, describe sudden and amazing angles. There is everywhere a continuous chant of running' water, pouring through the deep gutters contrived between the paved thoroughfare and the absurd little sidewalks varying in width from one 10 three feet The architecture is very old-it is seventeenth century probably-and it reminds one a great deal of that characterizing the antiqua ted French quarter of New Orleans. But oiae must imagine New Orleans idealized by artis...

SKETCHES. CALIFORNIA SPORT. THE HUNTING ON A BIG RANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

SKETCHES CALIFORNIA SPORT. HIE HUNTING ON A BIG EA3TCH. ' It j'ou want eome genuine sporr,' said a big ranch owner, ' come out to my place and stay a few days.' The ranch, was in one of the Middle Cali fornia counties, the latter an empire in itself and as large as the State of Massachusetts, if guessing goes for anything, and as we rolled into the rsiich yard one morning we found the owner and Ms dogs awaiting us with open arms and mouths. There was plenty of air here. You could swing a cat without hitting anything, so thero was room, and you lost the compressed feeling one gets after a winter in the city. A\v&y to the east were the Sierra Nevadas with the big trees, the lofty peaks, lapped with enow, gleaming like gems, while to the west rose the Coast Range, scarred and cut by the rains of centuries. Between these giant ridges the Talley of San Joaquin stretched away in the blue haze with its ranches, homes and farms. The ' sporting farmer' is looked upon with disfavor in...

The Latest Feminine Crazes. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

Tise Latest Femiaine Crazes. No one ever denies the existence of femi nine "crazes." They are one and nil the outcome of the feminine love of novelty, and what a monotonous world it would be if these innocent fancies were not to be indulged in. And they have been catered to, more or less, from time immemorial, and from that re mote period have the masculine shafts cf ridicule been leveled at them. As far back as the year 1621 the folioTring sentiment was scratched, evidently with a diamond, upon a rricdow pane iu Old England : Men can nee more knowe woman's mind by tears, Than by her shadow judge what clothes she wears. And very merrily and swiftly is the stream of novelty spreading along just now. It is quite the fashion to be odd, I had almost said cccentric. And we begin the craze at the pitmaele of our quaintly shaped, high bonnets, and continue it to the tip of. our funny pointed slippers. And right here let us pauie for a moment. There is a decided ' craze' for canvas shoes; t...

Harmless Snakes and Birds. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

Harmless Snakes and Birds. The boy with a gun or the thoughtless hunter do mere harm in killing useful birds and snakes than the good they accomplish in destroying a few rabbits or squirrels. The last year or two the rattlesnakes, which a few years ago were almost exlinct within settled districts, have again made their appearance. Several have been lolled In the vineyards near town and more further out in the country. This increase in their numbers is not duo to any especially favorable change in the cli mate, but mainly to the destruction of the enemies of the snakes. The principal one oi the latter are the small prairie owls,which in former years used to be so common, but which ars now rarely met with. Those small owls feed to a great extent on the young ' one button * snakes, and few of our farxiers really know what a powerful ally in destroying vermin this little owl is. But the latter docs not only help in keeping the rattlers down, but maay a mouse and gopher is killed and for...

FARM & GARDEN. Professor Henry on the Preparation of Ensllage. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 14 September 1888

FARM & GARDEN, Professor Henry on tbe Preparation of Ensilage. Ill Professor Henry's ensilage articles, fceuiar published in the Breeders* Gazette, he says that last season he urged that the fodder be wilted before it was put into the eilo, and his own experience, with that of many others corroborates this method of procedure, which has the additional advantage that less water is handled in the operation. If it is intended to alloi? the fodder to wilt, the corn had better be cut and shocked, after which it may stand from three to ten days, depending upon the maturity of the stalks at the time of cut ting, and the weather. One of the advan tages of cutting and shocking is that when it is over the force of men employed in this operation can bs changed to filling the silo. If the corn is cut and placed in the silo at once quite a force of hands is needed, but by cutting and shocking first we can avoid this double force. In regard to the kind of feed cutter to be used, it may be...
