MEXICAN SACRIFICES. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 12 February 1885
MEXICAN SACRIFICES. Some of tho Horrible Customs Which ( hristhu.lly this Done Away With. Tho Mexican sacrifices were, in truth, of the most frightful description. li was an axiom among the Aztecs that none but human saeriiiees were truly efficacious. They were continually making war in order to get a supply of victims. They regarded tho victim, when once selected, as a kind of incarnation of the deity who was ultimately to consume his flesh, or at any rate his heart. They retained tho practice of cannibalism as a religious rite, and, as though they had some of the redskin's blood in their veins, they rolined upon the tortures to which they forced those victims, whom they had almost adored the moment before, to undergo at last. To celebrate the close of the annual rule of Te/eatlpoca, which fell at the beginning of May, they set apart a year beforehand the - handsomest of the prisoners of war captured during! preceding year.

WATER AS A REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 12 February 1885
WATER AS A REMEDY. How It May He lined to Cure Various Ail- ments That rii-ili U Heir to. Human life depends on air and water more than on anything else. And yet most of our infectious diseases reach us through one or the other. It is gratifying, however, to know that both, when pure, not only share with food the great olliee of life-sustaining, but are signally helpful in eradicating disease. Of all the agents that neutralize and destroy noxious impnrit\, the oxygen of tho air is most important. The following will indicate some of the remi lial uses of water. A plunge in cold water— followed by vigorous friction—or a copious showerbath in a warm room is one of the best of stimulants and tonics. Either kind of bath, however, is unsafe v here there is low vitality or heart trouble. Our best physicians now admit that the heat of fevers— a high temperature is their most dangerous quality—can be best controlled by the judicious • pplieation of water to the surface. It not only greatly l...

Board of Trustees, and who shall be one of the Justices of the Peace of the township in which said city or town is situated; and such subordinate offcers as are hereinafter provided for.
