A Japanese Baby. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
A Japanese Baby. [St. Nicholas.] When Kine, tho little Japanese baby, was 100 days old she was carried to the temple, just as some American parents take their littlo children to tho church to have them christened, though Kind's parents do not know or worship the true God. The priest wrote a prayer on a piece of paper and put it into the prayerbag, which was .-mall and made of red crape, embroidered with white dowers and drawn together by silk (ords. The bag containing the prayer was the "guard from evil," and it is devoutly believed by .ill Japanese to have the power of keeping children from evil spirits, from delusion by foxes for the people think that foxes can cheat or enchant people—-and from all dangers The little red bag was attached to the girdle behind. After bestowing a gift in money upon the priest the parents and relatives returned home with the little girl and held a great feast in her honor. Kine was carefully nursed, and carried on the back of a faithful servant, who f...
The Family at the Bar. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
The Family at the Bar. [London Letter. ] Speaking of lunch and dining saloons, there are some things here, common customs, that shock the American idea of propriety. To begin with, the custom of women entering saloons at all hours of the day, steppiug up to the bars and calling for brandy and water, or whatever liquors they fancy. And thes^ are not of the lower order by any DMMia. On the contrary, many of them are the wives of respectable mercb/tits, and dressed elegantly. In the evening, when the theatres are out, every gin-palace within stveral blocks is crowded with men, women. and children just from the theatre. The whole family enter and call for spirits, and thus set a terrible example to the children accompanying them. At the bars at all hours of the day and evening there are as many female customers as male, aad there is no affectation or nonsense about it. They don't drink from wine-glasses, but take their measured gill the same as men, and *iike it "nate at that. They can ...
A Remedy for Street Noises. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
A Remedy for Street Noises. A physician writes to The Lancet: "Some years ago, owing to illness and long residence in the tropics, I became morbidly sensitive to noise of every kind, and procured complete relief in the following way: I placed some spermaceti ointment in the centre of a little square of thin, limp cotton, brought the corners together, tied them with thread, and inserted one of the little plugs well into each ear, and after a little kneading with gentle pressure found that I was absolutely deaf to all ordinary noises, such as the loud barking of dogs and the rumbling of heavy carriages in the streets. "A couple of points must bo carefully attended to. The ointment must not he too soft, the quantity about the^ize of a small pea, and the little bag must be somewhat larger than its contents, to allow the plug to take the shape of the auditory canal. If the bag be too small, or its contents larger in size than a pea, it cannot be inserted into the ear, and, if applied onl...
Ancient Egyptian Funerali. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Ancient Egyptian Funerali. [Chicago Herald.] The ancient Egyptians held a tribunal over their dead. Any one was allowed to bring to this tribunal accusation against the corpse, and if it was shown he had lived an evil life, burial was refused. If no accusation was brought, the relatives ceased lamenting and pronounced encomiums on the dead, enlarging upon his many virtues.
They All Knew They Kuuw. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
They All Knew They Kuuw. IPortland Advertiser! A Portland man who had commonly mispronounced the name of Mrs. Hemans by giving the "c" along sound attempted to find out from several of his acquaintances if they had fallen into the same error. Not wishing to give a clew to the point in question, ho asked casually, as if for information: "Who is the author of 'The Breaking Waves Dashed High?'" The answer promptly given was, "Mrs. Sigourney. The same day he asked another friend the same question: "Who is the author of 'The Breaking "Waves Dashed High?'" '•Leigh Hunt." He persevered in this method and anxiously inquired from still another: "Who is the author of 'The Breaking Waves Dashed High?'" This one had no doubt whatever, and boldly replied, "Julia Ward Howe." The next time the question was asked it was asked in this form, "How do you pronounce 'H-e-m-a-n-s?'"
MISSIONARIES IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
MISSIONARIES IN CHINA. TVhnt the Catholic* Are Doing In tho Flowery Kingdom. [Hong Konß Cor. Oiobe-Deniocrat] "It has been said that the Chinese are hostile to the Catholics localise they teach their converts that the pope is the temporal as well as their spiritual sovereign, which is equivalent to an imperium in imperio." "It is so alleged, but it is not true. The idea of the pope pleases the Chinese converts, bt cause they see in him unity, and they aro quite pleased to hear that they have to place their dependence on one great central head of the church We never speak to the natives about the temporal power. Our head is simply the head of the church. 1 don't really think there are more than three, or four persons among the Chinese who know that the pope has been deprived of his temporal power. A few native priest! may know it: not many." "II is also alleged that the priests interfere between I In 1 magistrates and the people and Interrupt the administration of justice." '"'This, ...
Birth and Dentil in Cuba. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Birth and Dentil in Cuba. [Pitibburg Dispat h.| You can be born without the assistance of a doctor in Cuba, but it is necessary to have the aid of a priest to make your birth legitimate. The law does not recognize your existence unless your nativity is recorded in the records of the church. Nor can you be married without tho padre, because civil and Protestant ceremonies are not accepted as legal in China. Much less can you be buried, because the cemeteries belong to the church, and the heretic lias to pay well to lay his bones in one of them. The church is recognized in Cuba more completely than in Rome, nnd exercises jurisdiction over the life there as well as that which is to come.

Clerical life in Washington. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Clerical life in Washington. (George Alfred Townseni.l When you consider how hard it is to save money out of #1,200 a year, and live in a city where is the high-priced gas and the least opportunities for overwork in the land, and materials of all sorts 00 per cent, higher than in the neighboring town of Baltimore, you see how few have saved anything here. Besides, clerical life in Washington almost compels marriage The departments are full of fema'o clerks often interesting. The girls of the town have no hopes of marriage except with government employes. Frequently a higher refinement attends this life than under the same income elsewhere, and this refinement and beauty lure on the young amateur who had c ected to be a lawyer or an inventor, tad he finds himself with a family of children and no way to turn but to the benignant government. The exalted places under this government bring only about $."&gt;0 a week salary. The station of dignity is worth only $4,000 a year. The ...
Army of the I'litoiiiar. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Army of the I'litoiiiar. [Ben: Perley Poore.] The Army of the Potomac, encamped around Washington during the winter of 1861 62, made itself very comfortable as the days began to lengthen. There was daily drilling, holiday games, Hag presentations, and investigations by congressional committees, but no forward movement. The camps of over 200 regiments presented to the visitor's eye a spectacle of perfect regularity "and exemplary neatness, while the interior of the tents was invariably well warmed and furnished with as many comforts as the circumstances of a state of war and the expectation of hasty removal at no distant date would allow. The men were also comfortably clothed for the season, and seldom made any complaints, even when inquired of as to their wants. The wonderful mildness of the weather had prevented any suffering from cold, and the worst storm was only a gale of wind which twisted and tore the Christmas greens, with which, some camps were profusely decorated, till thei...
Jet-Hlack Snowflakei. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Jet-Hlack Snowflakei. ["J. J. P." In The Current] As I was riding through Pittsburg one day my attention was arrested by a remarkable meteorological phenomenon. Great Hakes of jet-black snow were falling so thickly as almost to obscure the vision, and the storm had evidently raged several hours, as footprints on the sidewalks indicated a depth of about four inches. Every object on which my wondering eye rested was covered by the sable mantle, and the effect upon my mind was extremely depressing. Strange to relate, the storm seemed to be confined wholly to the city, all traces of it vanishing as the train entered the suburbs, where the sun again became visible. £o deeply was I impressed with the phenomenon and the sudden transition that, to make sure I had not been dreaming, I questioned several fellowpassengers, and learned that they also had witnessed the singular spectacle, though nont of them offered an explanation." The same showers are frequently noticed in Chicago. There is an...
Baltimore's Baby Camel. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Baltimore's Baby Camel. [Baltimore Sun.] Druid Hill park now rejoices in a baby camel. The new arrival is r female. The youngster, when standing, is about four feet high, and is thickly covered with wooley hair of very dark color, i In- hair on the head, legs and hump being black. The large, black eyes and long, goose-shaped head give the animal a very comical appearance. The legs are almost as long now as they ever will be, and the hump is a jolly little mass of fat that rolls about under one's hand and trembles like a bowl of jelly. Its mouth is as tender as that of a new-born babe, and the gums are soft pink. It spends most of its timo lying down, and when roused up and kept on its feet it shuts its eyes and persists in dosing off again. It cries when hungry or lonesome not unlike a human baby.
A Hint til I. .Ml., i .. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
A Hint til I. .Ml., i .. IMuperintmidei-.t A. K. Burnett] When naught in moral training is done, convicts behind the grated bars sigh in their slumbers. This country is overstocked with educated rascals. What the schools need is not more of arithmetic and grammar, but more of heart culture—of a sthetic and moral training, less cramming and driving for per cents, more moral instruction. The world needi good men, as well as good accountants and grammarians, and there is to-day less lack of intelligence than of public virtue and private fairdealing, less lack of knowledge than of an inclination toward a noble life—a life of justice, kindness and mercy.

The New Word "Literarian." [Chicago Herald.] A new word, "literarian," a person devoted to literary pursuit, is proposed by The Literary World, which says: "Litterateur is foreign: literary men is awkward, besides being restricted in gender; literarian, following the analogy of 'parliamentarian,' is natural; it is also sensible and convenient." CronweU considered as his lucky day Sept. a, and Napoleon Dec. 2.

Valuable Wooda from India. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Valuable Wooda from India. [Foreign Lette.-.j Immense quantities of woods are annually sent from India to England, tc be manufactured into furniture. &lt;Un of the most highly valued of these, and universally used, is the toon wood, which is light, soft and red, having nc h cart wood: is not eaten by ants, and is adapted not only for furniture, but for door panels and carving. Chickerasi 01 chickrassi wood is another sort of great industrial value. It is a large tree, with bark of reddish brown and deeply cracked, the heartwood hard, varying from yellowish to reddish brown, with a beautiful satin luster, seasons and works well, and is employed for furniture and carving. Nagasar woo 1 has dark-red heartwood, extremely hard; it is used for building, for bridges, gun stocks, and tool handles, but its more general use is prevented by its great hardness, weight, and the consequent difficulty of working it. Kandebwood is light-red, shining, cross-grained and moderately hard.
I'hyilology of Fainting;. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
I'hyilology of Fainting;. [Harper's Magazine.] A timid person sees, perchance, some accident in which human life is possibly sacrificed, or the sensibilities are otherwise shocked. His feelings overcome him, and he faints. How are we to explain lit lot us see what takes place. The impression upon the brain made by the organ of sight creates (through the agency of special centers in the organ of the mind) an influence upon the heart and the blood-vessels of the brain. This results in a decrease in the amount of blood sent to the brain, and causes a loss of consciousness. In the same way persons become dizzy when looking at a water-fall, or from a height, through the effects of the organs of sight upon the brain.
Soap Treen In Florida. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Soap Treen In Florida. [Chicago Time*.] There are a number of soap trees growing in Tallahassee. They are prolific fruiters, the berries being about the size of an ordinary marble, having a yellowish, soapy appearance, with a hard black seed, from which the trees are propagated. People in Tallahassee boil the fruit to make so.'p, but in China, Japan and other tropical countries the berries are used as a substitute for soap just as they are taken from the trees. Patent medicines are estimated by a leading English medical journal to cause the death of 130,000 persons per year. The thousands of finger rings woru in this country are estimated to be worth ♦58,000,000.
