Mow It Happened. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Mow It Happened. ICliiraKO Ledger] ''Why, Bobby, what in the world have you been doing;" said a mother to her little boy, who came home from school with his nose bloody, his face scratched up, and his collar torn out by the roots. "Why, ma, you see, Billy Dricks called me a bad name." "Oh. you bad, naughty boy! And you've been fighting again.' What will your poor papa say?" "But I couldn't help it, ma." "Why couldn't your" "Well, I said he was another. That's all I done; and then tho fighting done itself."
The Children of the Moon. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
The Children of the Moon. I. Exchange.) A wise little girl believed that the stars were the children of the moon. Her mother wanted her to go to bed one night before she felt quite sleepy enough to go willingly. "But the moon hasn't sent her children to bed yet," objected the little astronomer petulantly. It so happened that a storm was brewing and heavy clouds wero gathering in the • heavens. "Go and see if she hasn't," said her mother. Tbe little head was immediately popped out of the window and the sky was scanned eagerly. "Well, I guess l'vu got to go to bed now," sho said after the survey; "tho moon is covering up her children and tucking them in."
Newspapers and Sociability. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Newspapers and Sociability. |New York Tribune Interview] I sometimes think that newspapers make men unsocial. Indeed, I know they do. Men no longer go to each other for information, but look for it in their newspaper, in tho early days of civilization, before tho newspaper era, men gathered together as tho Athenians did, anxious to hear some new thing. In the e"rly days of this country tho cross-roads store was the news center, where men gathered in a social way to communicate the news to one another. But tho .. i-spaper changes all that.
BRILLIANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
BRILLIANTS. In opinions look not always back; Tour wake is nothing, mind the coming track; Leave what you've done for what you have to do; Don't be "consistent," but be simply true. —[Holmes. The stars that disappear at morn, Oh, think not they are fled; They are not lost, they are not gone, But 'mid the glory shed Around them by the source of light, It is the night that's dead. —[Anon. Fawtine, lift high the beaker, Lift high the wan white wine; Ere grow those mad eye* meeker, Make first thy mad nets mine. Make mine the red lips treasure Too fierce to melt in love, And give to pain the pleasure— My paralytic dove. —[H. C. Bunner.
SWEETHEARTS’ FOLK LORE. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
SWEETHEARTS’ FOLK LORE. A Wishing; Chair—Whether Marriage or Not—Practice In Germany. [Belgrarta.] Perhaps your affections are still disengaged, but you wish to bestow them on one who will return like for like. In this case there- are plenty of wishing chairs, wishing gates, etc., scattered through the country. A wish breathed near them, and kept secret, will sooner or later have its fulfillment. But there is no need to travel to the lake country or \o Finchalo priory, near Durham' (where there is a wishing chair); if you see a piece of old iron or a horseshoe on your path, take it up, spit on it, and throw it over your left shoulder, framing a wish at the same time. Keep this wish a secret, and it will come to pass in due time. If you meet a piebald horse, nothing can be more lucky; utter your wish, and, whatever it may be, you will have it before the week be out. In Cleveland the following method of divining whether a girl will be married or not is resorted to: Take a tumbler of w...
I In- Boom of the Banjo. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
I In- Boom of the Banjo. [Pre fassor Thoims J. A-n strong.] "Thero is a noticeable boom In banjos, which I believe is going to assume large proportions. Thereat value of the banjo is not yet widely known, and cannot be discovered from the use of it on the stage. Its finest effects are not seen there, even in the hands of the most artistic players. Tho public needs to be educated to its superb range of tone, and to that end 1 am introducing a musical novelty in the shape of a banjo orchestra. No other orchestra of the kind, I believe, exists anywhere, and the audiences we appeared before were delighted with the musical effect. We have twelve banjos, which range in size from the small piccolo banjo to the big professional instrument."
Davy .1 >■ •■,' f.M'ker. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Davy .1 &gt;■ •■,' f.M'ker. [Detroit Free Press.] Sailors call the sea "Davy Jones' I.ocker" because the dead are thrown there. Davy is a corruption of "duffy," by which name ghosts or spirits are known among the West Indian negroes, and Jones is a corruption of the name of the Prophet Jonah, who was thrown into the sea. Locker, in seaman's parlance, means any receptacle for private stores. So that when a sailor says, "He's gone to Davy Jones' I.ocker, ho means, "Hois gone to the place of safe-keeping where duffy Jonah was sent to."

In a shaft put down on the east side of Hath creek to a depth of twelve feet oil flows in of exceptionally high specific gravity. It is, when first exposed, of a brownish color, and can be cut with a knife like soft butter. It gradually turns black on exposure, and has little odor when it first comes from the shaft.

IMnilnlahed Hirth Kate. 1 Chicago Herald,] At the beginning of tho present century the population of France was increasing at the rate of 6.02 per 1,000 per annum. In 1879 tho percentage had decreased to 8.3-1, and to-day it is 9.49. There is no exces, of mortality. Tho cause is to be found in tho diminished birth rate.
UNDER THE SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
UNDER THE SHADOWS. A Spot Beneath Brooklyn Bridge Wher* the People Turn Night Into Day. [New York Cor. Inter Ocean.] There is a place in this city where day is night and night la day. The phenomenon is an artificial production, of course, but none the less singular for that. I discovered it by looking down from the Brooklyn bridge. Underneath that (trial structure stands a hugh tenement house, seven stories high, and separated into two sections by a narrow alley lea ling to an inner court. This inclosed space is like a well, into which the sun can not shine and at the bottom of which the tenants are troglodytes After glimpses in ridiug over the bridge for months I made an exploration of the premises. The court seemed subterranean. It had the dampness of a cellar and the gloom of a cave. Night was there at noon. The patch of blue sky overhead was obscured by the suspended structure of the big bridge, and the little natural light that began to make the descent became so nearly absorbe...
The Stage Manager's Throe Tube*. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
The Stage Manager's Throe Tube*. [New York Sun.] Now, to go back to the prompt place. Here are three speaking-tubes. One goes to the tty-muu who work in the gallery overhead, and who are a subdivision of the carpenters' department. Their work is to raise and lower the curtain, act drop, borders, border lights, ceilings and drops. Through this pipe I can tell if I want a slow, medium or quick curtain at the end of an act, or communicate any orders. It may seem strange to you, but the speed with which a curtain is lowered has often a great deal to do with the success of an act 01 tableau. At rehearsals the effect is often tried several times before it is got exactly right. A slow curtain will kill a scene of spirited action, while a quick curtain will destroy the effect of « strong emotional struggle, in whioh words and feelings take the place of action; and many a good comic situation has been ruined by a too slow curtain. There are certain effects which the moment they have been pro...
MeiiMiirlaic a Ku*ecour»«. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
MeiiMiirlaic a Ku*ecour»«. |( I ll'innati Tun. s Star | The conventional line upon which a racecourse or trotting track is measured is at three feet from the rai lor pole, which for a running or trotting horse under saddle is correct, assuming him to maintain a uniform line at that distance. A horse in harness, however, allowing for width of sulky or wagon, cannot with safety be driven in a line less than six feet from the rail. This would make tho distance over the ordinary or accepted design of track of one-quarter-of-a-mile turns of 18.85 equal to 18 feet 10.2 inches. Then, for a horse trotting over such a track in two minutes and thirty seconds, there should be deducted from his time half a second. A double team would require this distance of feet to be increased fully one foot, if not more. When tho time is 2.08 the deduction .should be forty-sixth hundredths of a second. When the design of a track is of irregular contour the increased distance will vary with each design.
The Chances Good. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
The Chances Good. [Boston Beacon.] Patient—Doctor, tell me the truth. Shall I get well? Doctor—l am sure you will. Out of five persons that have your trouble, one generally recovers. I had just five of your cases, and the other four are dead. So you see your chances are extremely good.
THE WORLD’S DRINKING HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
THE WORLD’S DRINKING HABITS From • General I'olnt of View—The Lun. don Time*' StatUtlcn —Curious Fact*. [Chicago Tribune.] looking at the liquor-drinking habits of the world from a broad, general point of view, and comparing tlio evils of alcohol in this country with other countries, the prohibitionists ought to be consoled with the thought that Americans are not so Lad as they are painted, and the additional thought of what the ext..nt of their task would be if they were working for compu sory temperance in almost any other country except this. The following ta ,le wh oh was compiled by 'Ihe i.ondou Times, showing the average yearly consumption of spirits, wine and beer per capita of population in various countries In litres (the litre being about a quart,), will be of interest not only to them but to the general reader: Spirits, Wine, Beer, litres. litres. litres.

Boapetone for Wall.. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Boapetone for Wall.. I The Milestone.] The latest invention for covering walls and ceilings is called "soapstone finish," and is mainly composed of steatite. It takes a high polish, is pearlgray in tint, presents the best possible surface for painting, either in oil or water color, and will neither chap nor chip. It is claimed to be a non-con-ductor and non-absorbent, and can be washed without injury. Nails can be driven into it without damage. When subjected to heat, and moisture and chemical fumes, it is said to give no smell; it also does not turn yellow with age. It is recommended for hospitals, factories, collars, markets, closets, pantries and kitchens, and is pleasanter to the eye than ordinary whitewash or cheap paper.
Astrology and Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Astrology and Cholera. [New York Mail | Belief in the malefic influences of the planets was universal, and the wisest of mankind were more or less influenced by horoscopes. As astronomy and physics advanced and more was learned of the scerets of nature, astrology fell into disrepute, and has exercised little influence over the affairs of men for two centuries past. Now, however, it seems to be reviving. In a recent report of the United States consul at a French port, it was stated that the spread of the cholera was largely attributed by scientific men to the influence of the prevalent astronomical conditions, or at least to telluric and atmospheric conditions, over which the planets are supposed to have some influence.
