"Stick, Brother, Stick." [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
"Stick, Brother, Stick." [Journal of Education.] Years ago, when a young minister in a trying position out west, we fell into a deep rut of discouragement and poured out our sorrows in a letter to an eminent doctor of divinity, who had grown up with a new city and had become one of the foremost divines and educators of the state, his reply was characteristic of the man: "My dear brother, stick. All that I have ever accomplished in this new country has been by sticking power. I have seen two generations of driftwood swept past my door, but I am here yet. Stick, brother, stick."
Sport for the Eye*. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Sport for the Eye*. [Scientific Exchange.] It would be well if we had some form of sport which would encourage the improvement of eyesight. We might have eye matches, for example, with prizes for those who could see furthest and clearest. There could be winking matches, open to persons of both sexes, for the purpose of strengthening the muscles of the eyelid, and government might offer premiums to blue-eyed babies, and thus encourage the stylo of tho eye which, according to oculists, is best adapted for ordinary wear and tear.
Keep Hncred the " Ego." [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Keep Hncred the " Ego." [The Argonaut] "Tho wisest of all sayings," said a philosopher at the Fielding club, "is the old Greek maxim, 'know thyself.'" "Yes," said Charles Kenney, "there's a deal of wisdom in it. Know thyself; but," he added, "uever introduce a friend." Money is the motive power of the world, but it takes square dealing to corner patronage. Paste that where the rain can't get at it, young man. The siege of Khartoum lasted 323 days.
Mexican Hot Springs. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Mexican Hot Springs. [Cor. New York Horn ■ Journal] The bathing at Agnas (alientes is peculiar. Tho bath-houses, while convenient, are imitations of none others known. The spring! aro really not springs. They are more properly Milled hot-water spouts, for they do not bubble or How out of the ground. They, sport out from fissures in crevices m tho lower edge of a circular mountain or foot-hill, and are fiom lour to sixty feet apart. The rock that forms the hill is porphyritie trachyte.

Milking Pictures for Auction Kooim, [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Milking Pictures for Auction Kooim, INi'w York Cor. Boston Hurald.j The most demonstrative auger that I bave personally seen in many a day was incited in a Jew by a girl who worked in his art shop. I will not call his place a studio, though pictures are painted there by the hundred, because the labor is quite mechanical. lie is a manufacturer of those canvasses which are consiantly being sacrificed at auction—with their colors so fresh, thoir frames so glistening, and yet not nearly so bad in design or drawing as they might be. The explanation of their lack of entire otlVnsiveness is that they are laid out by means of stencils, after which the paint is rapidly brushed on. A row of twenty landscapes were on the bench. They were alike. 1-ach showed a New England farmhouse, with a field of corn at i lie back, and a well sweep in front. At this particular stage of the work, the figure of a Longfellow's "woman with bare arms" was to have been inserted. He had told the boss girl so on goi...
Bismarck at Honie. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 9 April 1885
Bismarck at Honie. [Joe Hattu .'■* London Letter! "You know," continues my correspondent, "how Bismarck has btra written of and talked about in England, and that his character has been mostly discussed on its obnoxious side, if it has one. A man of iron, a cold hand, unsympathetic, overbearing tyrant! That is, 1 believe, tho general idea of Bismarck. Now, they say a man is not a hero to his valet; but you should hear Prince Bismarck's servants talk of him; you should talk of him to the men who constantly come in contact with him! That is the way to get at the human side of a great man. They all agree in describing Bismarck as a most kindly and considerate chief, singularly tender hearted; if any of his people are ill he visits them constantly, will sit by their beds and chat and smoke—if not against the medical rules. "He is idolized by his sons and his daughter, and ho idolizes them; and not only is he a good father, but a devoted and affectionate husband. He walks stiffly and hold...

Sharp, unscrupulous tradesmen are found among the placid, meek-faced Cliiniimen as well an among the more highly civilized and obtrusive brethreu of other nations. A correspondent gives thti following illustration of this fact. Ha was sitting with some brother offloen of the United States ship Dash, in front of the English hotel in Hatuvin, Java, and was approached by a forlorn-looking Chinaman, who had a sword-cane in liis hand. "Want buy?" said he, bowing profoundly to the group. Tho others paid no attention to him, but 1, being somewhat inexperienced in tho ways of thu "childliko and bland," took pity on him and asked his price. "Six dollah," said he. "Six dollars!"
