Not Honored at Home. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
Not Honored at Home. As water seeks its level, so does the village instinctively tend to maintain a certain moral and intellectual uniformity. The man of exceptional ability Is sooner or later expelled by tho body politic, lie is mistrusted, disliked, and finally ostracized. Nor Ii he himself alow to take the bint to depart. He perceives thai there is nothing for him to do at home. He forges restlessly about for awhile, trying this and that, and effecting only mischief: everybody surmises an evil destiny for him; be puts on his hat and departs, in despair or anger; and presently the world recognizes and celebrates his genius. But his native village never swells the chorus of praise. They have known him from a baby; he cannot humbug theml Did he not steal apples from Farmer Hoyt's orchard? Was he not the slowest hand at a spelling-match in school? Did he not jilt Mary Jane after everybody had agreed that he wonld marry her? Go to, thenl Can such a fellow as that invent a navigable ai...

A MISUNDERSTANDING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
A MISUNDERSTANDING. "I say, stranger," whispered a Western man who had strayed into un uptown theatre where tbe play of "Komeo and Juliet" was going on, "I can't make head nor tail of this thing. What's the namcof this play, anyhow?" " 'Romeo and Juliet.' " "Well, if I'd known that," said the disgusted Westerner, "1 wouldn't have come in. I understood the feller at the door lo say it was something about Omaha and Jolict"— New York Life.
JUDGE LONGWORTH'S TENANT. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
JUDGE LONGWORTH'S TENANT. "Never heard how Judge Longworth induced a non-paying tenant to move? Well, I'll tell you: For months the unprofitable tenant had stayed in a certain house in the West End belonging to the judge, anil month after month hail been notified tliat he must move. Finally with patience exhausted, the judfee wont to his debtor and Implored him personally to 'got.' " "Fact Is," said the tenant, "1 haven't the money to move." "How much will It cost you?" The sum was named, which Judge Lungworth Immediately handed over and departed. A few day. afterward an agon', for the Longworth estate entered tho judge's office in high glee, and mini: "Well, at last I've rented that East End house, which has been so lung idle, and we get a good rent for it, too." "How much?" "Seventy-live dollars a month." "To whom did you rent It?" "To Mr. Blank." "W-h-a-t! lo Mr. Wank?" exclaimed the judge, jumping lo his feet; "why, I paid him money out of my own pockot last week lo move out of ...
Hints to Amateur Photographers. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
Hints to Amateur Photographers. An Important fact to be remembered in making portraits at close, quarters is that tho professional photographer uses for portraits, a special portrait lens, but the amateur generally does this work with a lens made for taking views. Those view lenses condense very much; that is, they exaggerate tlie perspective by taking in so wide a field. Sometimes in taking a simple profile, If the bead Is placed too near the camera, the visible ear of tlie sitter, not having a chance to get so far off as tlie nose—which has, let us say, two and a half inches of an advanlage—is givlng-an alarming size. Then, in a full-face vie*, the poor nose has the worst of it. On this account, a "three quarter" view is the best for an amateur working with a view camera; though if a fair distance Is allowed between tho sitter and the lens, there need be no difficulty of either sort. Do not hesitate to make experiments. Many of the advances In photography have resulted from the se...
Elegant Dining and Breakfast Room. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
Elegant Dining and Breakfast Room. Ou the opposite side of the main hall, corresponding In size and location with the drawing-room, is the dining-room of this princely establishment. How great the contrast bet ween this and the other rooms. The woodwork is of Kngilsh oak, anil is such a perfect type of Italian renaissance that it might have been taken bodily from an old Roman palace. The carvings are rich and bold, ilie divisions i simple, large, and massive, forming a wainscot six feet high. Above it the walls are bung with Gobelin laiK'Stry relating the story of a boar and stag bunt from the meet to the finish. The sideboard and mantel, both reaching to the ceiling, arc almost monumental in their noble simplicity of outline, combined with a wealth of sculptural detail. The ceiling, of powerful parallel beams of oak, contains a large painting in its centre panel, by Henri Levy, nf Paris. It treats of a mythological lUnjeet, "Tbe Marriage of Ariadne to Bacchus," which is a masterpie...

Apartment houses have until lately been very few In Cambridge, and even now there are only two or three In which suites rent for more than twenty-five dollars a month. "The Stanstead," which Mr. John H. Hubbard Is now building ou Ware street, Is a higher grade of apartment house than has thus far been erected In the city, and Is, if we are not mistaken, the only one in which all the rooms are heated by steam. The Stanstead, which was plauned by Messrs. J. R. Richards &amp; Son, who are also supervising its construction, has a location of exceptional attractiveness, and is abundantly provided with light and air on every side. In the rear, there is a lawn of 150 feet, on either side there is ample space, and in front, Ware street is broad and pleasant. The building is of pressed brick, richly trimmed with freestone, and is three stories high above the basement, There are two suites of rooms on each floor, and each is perfectly isolated from all the others. The entrance Is thro...
Hard-Wood Floors. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 23 July 1887
Hard-Wood Floors. If you have hard-wood floors, or the simply stained and shellacked pine, the whole beauty and freshness of the room will depend on their being kept bright and free from dust; sweeping with a hair broom every morning and washing once a woek will secure this, except in long dry spells, or If there Is much coal dust In winter, when a damp cloth must follow the broom when the latter is insufficient to remove the dusty appearance, but never in this or any other case allow '.he damp cloth to replaco a broom. Too many servants think they need not sweep floors or oilcloth if they are going to wash it; the result is a cloudy, half-cleaned look. Once In a while, every fourth week perhaps, the water used for washing stained. or hard-wood floors should be hot, and have a tablespoonful of turpentine and the same of oil In It, the cloth be wrung out of this and used to wipe tlie floors. Light-wood floors, ash, etc., aro brightened by the use of skimmed milk instead of water. — C...
