Listening to Davy Crockett. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 29 January 1887
Listening to Davy Crockett. No quieter or more gentlemanly person did I ever meet than David Crockett. He came slowly lounging Into the venerable office of the "National Intelligencer" one severe winter afternoon, when and where X was industriously warming my little boy body all round the small, square stove. There was a vacant chair near me. He took it with solemn deliberation. Then over the flat stove-top he extended his big rough hands. "Cold," he said. Nothing more for a long while. I looked up at him—looked Intently; for this was an uncommon comer. A large form—to my boyish idea gigantic—a great, strange head, down either side of which, from a middle parting, fell long black hair. Something savage about hhn, yet a most gentle savage, as if he could fondle a baby, pet a puss, and even cry very heartily, being moved by proper circumstance. My father, present, of course, for he "belonged to the office," observing my amazement, found opportunity to whisper in my ear, "David Crocket...

Inflammable Breath. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
Inflammable Breath. There is a brief reference in a recent number of Science to a rem*rkable case in which the breath of an individual, or rather the eructations from his stomach, took fire when brought in contact with a lighted match. *i his case, which was reported in the Medical Record, has called forth communications from physicians by which It would appear that the phenomenon is not such a rare one as was at first supposed. In one case of disordered digestion the patient emitted inflammable gas from the mouth, which, upon analysis, was found to be largely composed of marsh' gas. In another ease the gat was sulphuretted hydrogen. A case i* reported in the British Medical Journal, in which, while blowing out a match, the patient's bieath caught fire with a noise like the report &lt;&gt;f a pistol, which was loud enough lo awaken Ids wife. One evening, while a confirmed dyspeptic was lighting his pipe, an eructation of ga« from his stomach occurred, and the ignited...
Effect of the Charleston Earthquake on the Health of the Inhabitants. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
Effect of the Charleston Earthquake on the Health of the Inhabitants. A very interesting communication to the Medical News has been made by Dr. F. Peyre Porcher of Charleston, on the Influence of Ihe recent earthquake shocks in that city upon the health of the inhabitants. In addition to ihe natural alarm and fright which were quite universal, some p&lt; rsons were attacked with nausea and vomiting, which recurred or persisted in several cases for days. Two gentleman on the island eighty miles from Charleston had their eyes filled with tears not to be repressed, but not caused by alarm, or fears for their personal safety, for the danger there was not imminent. Many persons experienced decidedly electrical disturbances, which were repeated upon the successive recurrence of the shocks. These were generally tingling, pricking sensations, like 'needles and pins,' affecting the lower extremities. One gentleman was completely relieved of his rheumatism; another, who for months was...
Private Snow Storms. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
Private Snow Storms. In -Guunar,' a tale of Norse life, the author produces a striking effect by narrating that during a rustic dance the close and over-heated room was so charged with moisture from the breatli and perspiration of the energetic dancers,tha ton the opening of an outside door, the sudden inrush of ley air filled the room with a dazzling shower of snow condensed from the vaporous atmosphere. A somewhat similar private snow-storm was lately witnessed at the office of the Hartford Courant. On the top of the building is a large tank containing the water used to run the elevator. The water is pumped over and over, and becomes so hot as to throw off clouds of steam, rising above the building, was condensed; and the tiny drops of water, freezing in the air, fell in a steady stream of minute snowflakes on the roof. It was a simple but interesting result of a well known laws.
Coal in Pennsylvania. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
Coal in Pennsylvania. It is not generally known, says a Scranton (Pa.) correspondent of the New York Tribune, that Nicholas Allen was the first discoverer of anthracite coal in Pennsylvania, but such is said to be the fact. Allen moved into Pennsylvania from the Lake Champlain lumber regions and settled on Broad Mountain, where he kept a tavern for several years. He was a noted hunter, trapper and fisherman, and on one of his periodical tramps through the wilderness, in the summer of 1790, he came across a spot where anthracite cropped out at the foot of Broad Mountain. He started a fire there, and when he saw that the black substance burned readily and threw out an intense heat, dug up a little of it and took it home. It made such a good and lasting fire that he and his wife resolved to take a quantity of it to Philadelphia. They then sold their tavern and all its contents, aud set out for the Quaker City with two large wagonloads of coal. Three of their horses died on the way, and...
Greeley's Absent-Mindedness. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 5 February 1887
Greeley's Absent-Mindedness. ''Stories about Horace Greeley are always interesting," remarked Charles M. Walker In conversation with a reporter. &gt;l The other day I met a proprietor of the Knightstown Banner, who gave me one that has never been in print. "A ne'er-do-well of a drunken printer, always In need ot money, on one occasion went to Mr. Greeley and asked a loan. He told the old man he hadn't worked for several days, and needed money badly. Some kind of a Republican convention was in progress, and visitors were constantly coming and going, conferring with the great editor. Drawing a large roll of paper money out of his pocket, lie gave the printer $5. He met a lot of tbe boys a moment after the interview with the sage, and told them his success. "By Jove," said he, as if a happy thought had struck him, 'I believe I'll play it on the old man.' Back he went into the sanctum, again he was favored with Mr. Greeley's ear and told his story. The sage for a moment looked p...
