SAN RAFAEL LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
SAN RAFAEL LETTER. (by our regular correspondent.) Sah Rafael, March 31, '85. Ed. News:—What a pretty place Sausalito is, I was coming over on the boat the other day, and as we approached Sausalito I carefully noted the scene before me. Several white-winged yachts were sailing past the wharf; some half a dozen large ships with their massive masts and spars were riding peacefully at anchor; a few fishing smacks floated playfully on the waves, and the seagulls' harsh cry was heard on every side. Behind all this was pretty, picturesque Sausalito, while far in the background, that grim old sentinel, Tamalpais, stood out in all its bleakness, making the loveliness of the beautiful garden-spot beneath all the more apparent. As I gazed I could not help exclaiming: "Where could an artist find a more fitting subject for his brush?" San Rafael was crowded with visitors on last Sunday. The long looked for rain has at last fallen, commencing on Monday and apparently concluding yesterday morning...
SAUSALITO―THE EL MONTE. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
SAUSALITO - THE EL MONTE. Of all the pleasant spots on earth for suburban residences the Press awards the palm to the charming little town of Sausalito. It is a birds nest of villas, where San Francisco gentlemen of business after the toils of their days' labor can retire to the shades of umbrageous trees, fresh air and comfortable homes. The trip from San Francisco is a pleasant one of half an hour. Fort Alcatraz; the Golden Gate and the scenery of the entire bay being delightfully presented to the eye of the tourist or passenger. It is a great contrast to the monotonous trip across the bay to Oakland, and the Press predicts that there is a great business future for Sausalito, and that it will in a few years challenge our beautiful city as to which the name of the "Athens of the Pacific,'' belongs. Real estate at Sausalito in view of its prospects is comparatively low, compared with Oakland, and we consider it a good field for speculation, for it is bound to grow, and that too rapi...
FERRYISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
FERRYISMS. We are requested to correct the impression that a certain young Sausalito gentleman who recently bought out one of our firms in the silk handkerchief line was about to engage in the business. He could however, be successful in this line, particularly if he continued the engagement of the two belles who have aided him in his selections. They have a fine assortment on hand and have already left him with a good stock of bills and still he is unreasonable enough to wish he had dissolved partnership before they did. We learn through a friend of ours that Jim and Lew's cat is doing well since her bath and that Jim has been provided with a fine lot of ribbons by several of the sympathetic fair sex to adorn the neck of Miss Puss. The only mean feature in the whole thing is that Mc. docked Lew for the demijohn he threw overboard to the cat. How heartless! Never mind Mc. we will get on your trail some day if we have to go to the Avenue House to do it. [We learn as we go to press th...

Two Odd Conceits. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
Two Odd Conceits. A new industry h;i&lt; corno to life. What to do with old kid gloves is a query generally answered by tho rag bag; but now some brilliant creature with time hanging on her hands hai discovered that minute pin-cushions can be evolved from abandoned gloves. She cuts them into all sorts of shapes, these pin-cushions, triangle*, hearts, clubs, spadM, little pug dogs, and pu«»y cats, then neatly sews them round and round, and lills them witli sharp and shining pins. Men are supposed tr carry these kindergarten object lessons i . their waUteoat pocket*, and to think of her whenever tiny noiod a pin, which they never do. Little tables about twerrv-two in« lies high, hiving tops shaped tike hearts, are v special fancy with the amateur interior decorator. She covers these innocent finishings of her drawing-room with canary-colored or brown plu-h, a epray of flowers or a flight of iwallowi or some other design adorning the top and continuing a little way,down one leg...
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. What Teachers Arc Doing to Decrease the Percentage of Illiteracy. The members of the teaching profession in this country are exhibiting, at the present time, a most commendable zeal in all good works. A review of the proceedings of the district contentions, county institutes and State associations reveals an extraordinary spirit of progress. The columns of the educational periodicals abound in papers which are full of interesting suggestions, original ideas and theories of all kinds. Every teacher seems to have his or her peculiar view which, on the proper occasion, is very courageously advanced. Opinions, diametrically opposed, constantly clash, but all are the outcome of one unanimous desire—improvement. The country at large is to be felicitated on this ' condition of things. It occasionally surprises the tuition and tax-payers to tind how far some of the vital questions in the administration of the public schools are from being definitely settled, bat this sur...
THE COWBOY. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
THE COWBOY. Hill Kji'§ lili-i of the Genesis of the !■&gt;»- tiw Monarch of the Plains. So much amusing talk is being mado recently anent the blood-bedraggled cowboy of the wild West, that I rise as one man to say ■ few things, not in a dictatorial style, but regarding this socalled or to-esteemed dry-land pirate who, mounted on a little cow-pony and under the black flag, Skill out across the green surge of the plains to scatter the rocky shores of Time with his fellowman. A great many people wonder where the cowboy, with his abnormal thirst for blood, originated. Where did this Jesse .lames, with his gory record and inUess ere come from? Was inborn in a buffalo wallow at the foot of tome rook-ribbed mountain, or did he lirst breathe the thin air along the brink of an alkali pond, where the homed toad and the centipede sang him to sleep, and the tarantula tickled him under the chin with its hairy legs? Careful research and cold, hard statistics show that the oowboy was born ...
How the Sultan Looks. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
How the Sultan Looks. "The day before tho one appointed for our leaving Constantinople," said Senator-elect Stanford, "I was much surprised at receiving, through a court oflicial, an invitation for the following afternoon to a private audience with the Sultan, during which he wished to question mo concerning material developments of Turkey. There was nothing remarkable aboutthe room, except, perhaps, the fact that it was furnished in French stylo nor was there much of Oriental splendor in the dress of the Sultan. He wore a blue andresi uniform of European cut, the only traces of Eastern costume being a plain fez, and a magnificently mounted loimetar. He appeared to be a rather slight man, some thirty-tiveyears of age, with an intelligent face that showed a somewhat timid character, I should judge, mid a decidedly Jewish cast of featuna."—Ban Francisco Call.

ON THE PLANET MARS. [N. O. Times-Democrat Trans. ( ■jiMiillf Flaminarton.l Than first two Inhabitants of Mars whom 1 met seemed to consider me with pity; and when I fancied that 1 discerned in their way of treatingmea certain cold air of superiority, my blood at once took fire, and with a strong effort at self-restraint, I opened my lipto say: "Messieurs, I mu.-t inform yon that the inhabitants of the Earth are not so Stupid as you seem to believe." Unfortunately they did not even allow me to begin the sentence, inasmuch as they had already divined what 1 was going to say by the molecular vibration in my brain.

The U»o of a Scarf Pin. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 2 April 1885
The U»o of a Scarf Pin. [Providence News') They were playing whist in tho smoker. One of the players woro on his collar scarf a diamond pin. It ru very large and very brilliant. The inference was that the wearer was a showy nabob, or a blackleg. As a partner was shuilling for a now deal, another remarked: "That is a tine pin you wear!" "Yes," replied the man, "that is a good pin—for tho money. It cost $3. "&gt;O. It is paste. You may wonder why I wear such a worthiest bauble. I wear it for protection. This is the third one 1 have worn; the other two were stolen. Let me explain: "I was traveling on a southern railway at night. Gradually tho DMMH gers in the car I was in dwindled to three—two men besides myself. I discovered that these men were attracted by my scarf pin, and I was convinced that they were determined to get it. I was glad, for I had inoja&gt;J.haii £3,000 in money and checks in my pocket.

Sun I i:iin i« c.'h Tlilrteen Club. [Chronicle "Undertones."] 1 have before me a menu of a dinner of the Thirteen club of San Francisco. It is a gruesome sight. On the front page is a curious design of an owl hatching thirteen skulls. On the back is a striking picture of a skull set artistically on two-cross-bones. Around both illustrations is a wide black line. Within narrower mourning lines on the inside is printed the menu, and on the opposite page is a list of thirteen ceremonies, each one of which deties a superstition. There are thirteen members only, and each one passes under a ladder to tho table. As supposed unlucky things to do, the list embraces presentation of jack-knives, spilling the Bait, breaking the mirror, casting the evil eye, spilling the wine, belling the black cat, cutting tho nine of diamonds, spying the moon over the left shoulder, tach member wears an opal in some setting and toasts are proposed to the illustrious memory of Jonah, to Friday and to the magpie...

The Difference. [Indianapolis Sentinel.] There is a story about a doctor who waa recently called to a fashionable lady at 2 o'clock in the morning, and astonished his patient by asking her, after a brief examination, whether she had made her will. He then advised her to send for a lawyer and perhapi also her pastor. "Must I die;' asked the lady. "1 am afraid so," was the answer. "How much time do you give mci" asked the lady in despair.
