Curios. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
Curios. "Could a man make a shirt for six cents?", asks Charles Dudley Warner, In Harper's for May. He couldn't do It for six dollars. It would strain most men's sartorial ability to sew on a button. An optimist is a woman with anew spring suit; a pessimist Is a woman without a new spring suit. An optimist Is a man with a baby one day old; a pessimist is a man with a baby one hundred and eighty-three nights young and teething. "Misther Cody," said one of Buffalo Bill's Indians tbe other day, "can I lave the aggregation timporarlly?" "Why, Bounding Panther?" asked Buffalo BUI.— "Sure an' I'd like to visit me old home at Ballyklllmucky, whin I'm so nare it." Prof. Sumner says, "The American is a freeman, and freemen do not take tips." Not when they are out of their reach, or spiked down with a ten-penny nail.

THE WHIPPING-POST. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
THE WHIPPING-POST. A Dolawaroan moved to Ohio, and was elected to the Legislature there. A bill relative to the penitentiary being before the House, he took occasion to compare the penal system of his former State to that of his adopted one, giving preference to the order of things to which he bad formerly been accustomed. Among his arguments in favor of the whipping-post, he said that the same culprits were seldom whipped a second time, the disgrace of the punishment causing them to leave the State and begin life anew elsewhere. At this point of the new member's speech a voice from the opposite side of the Chamber called out, "Is that the reason why we have the gentleman from Delaware among us?"— Harper's for August.
AN ORIGINAL VERSION. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
AN ORIGINAL VERSION. There lived near Alexandria, in Virginia, an old colored man aud woman, whom their acquantances called Daddy and Mammy Williams. He had bad educational advantages, and could read in a fashion peculiarly his own; but his wife, although lacking as regards erudition, possessed great foice of character, which she often displayed in a manner that was very irritut : ng to her husband. When she became particularly fractious, Daddy would take the Bible, and open to that chapter in&amp;cvelation beginning, "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the suu and the moon under her feet," etc. With impressive solemnity ho would read as follows: "An' dere 'peared a great wonder in heben, a woman 1" Slowly closing the book, he would gaze sternly at bis now subdued wife, for the passage never failed to produce the desired effect.— Harper's for August.
A PLACE OF REST. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
A PLACE OF REST. "Where shall we go this summer, dear?" asked Mrs. Flyaway. "Well, let's see," replied her husband: "last winter we got malaria in Florida?" "Yes, aud the alligators got your pointer dog." And the preceding summer we got rheumatism In the mountains?" "We did, and the bears got my little Skyc terrier." "And tbe summer before that we went to the seashore, aud got bled by the mosquitoes and the landlord?" "Yes." "And tbe summer before that we went into the country, and the children were laid up all summer with ivy" poison?" "I remombor." "Well, if I felt as strong as I used to, I'd like first-rale to take a vacation this summer; but I'm feeling kind of weak and listless, and I'm afraid I couldn't stand it. Let's stay home and rest this year."— llurdettc in Brooklyn Eagle.
Home as a Summer Resort. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
Home as a Summer Resort. After a week of fierco heat the case against the city home as a place of comfortable residence iv summer may be supposod to be as strong as ever it is; and yet we are prepared to maintain the thesis that there Is no better summer resort, if we live as wo should, than a comfortable home. We have here our bath rooms with abundant, supplies of cold water, and these arc lacking at the smaller summer resorts, and inconvenient of access at all of them. We have tho markets lo draw upon for food. We have hero no occasion to dress for dinner. We havo screens in the windows to keep out the flics and mosquitoes. We have hotter beds and much better ventilated bedrooms than any hotel can give Us guests. It Is hot In the city, of course, but it is hot also at the summer resorts, as everybody knows who has ever been to one. Men and woman are more comfortable at the summer resorts than at home, cblolly because they give greater and more rational attention to comfort. If the...
Social Efforts in Boston. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
Social Efforts in Boston. Mr. Arlo Bates has a keen eye for the vulgarities of the social panorama and a keen pen to record them. In a recent letter to the Providence Journal he writes: That the most humiliating feature of modern society is to be found in the artifices of those who wish to " get on" in the fashionable world "has often enough been remarked ; yet there is still room for amazement at the Ingenuity of the devices to which snobs will resort. We have had a good many weddings recently in the neighborhood of Boston, and among other brides of high social position has been Miss X., whose family is rather noted for its excluslveness. When the Invitations for the wedding were sent out, Mrs. A., a woman who Is really devoured by social ambition, was not Included In the list of guests. She had met Mrs. X., and had somewhat overstepped the strict proprieties of etiquette in tho manner in which she had called upon that exclusive lady. . — Now, she was doubtless much chagrined at no...
A Brilliantly Beautiful Ball-Room. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
A Brilliantly Beautiful Ball-Room. Out of the depths of this superb apartment the favored guest is ushered into a room 40x00, which is even brighter in white enamel and gilt. There is everything to invite mirth, dancing and music in this sprightly ball-room. The architecture is tlie famous Adams style, so much affected in Boston, and which was very popular in England a century ago. A distinguishing featuie is the carved frieze, in relief, with gilt outlines, which by an effective device run into the celling, so that the delicate and beautiful tracery of flowers and vines in relief, on a pure white ground, have a remarkably light and graceful appearance. On the ceiling are small figure panels, painted by Alexander Sandiere, which are fanciful representations of music aud dancing, all of which are faithfully mirrored in the highly polished light parquet floor. Six windows furnished with opalescent transoms, showing tbo light pink, green, and blue, of a fire opal, hung with cherry-col-...
The Origin of Folk-Tales. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 July 1887
The Origin of Folk-Tales. It is not denied that some tales may have been handed down generation after generation, nor that some may have been disseminated In the manner mentioned by Mr. Lang. It Is exceedingly unlikely that, by either process, they would retain their original form. Belief in magic, however, we know has prevailed almost universally among primitive peoples and is hardly extinct yet among the common people of the most enlightened countries. Nothing was so COmmoil In savage life as for one person to lie in peril at the hands of another, or from wild beasts, storm, flood, lightning, or tornado, all of which were equally persons to the savage apprehension. Escape from danger, we may assume, was not rare.! Why should not tales of his adventures be full of the savage belief of the story-teller? The reader has noted the modern air ol most of those stories. Clearly there has been an adaptation of primitive beliefs to modern conditions. Has not the same pro cess gone on among ...
