THE NARCOTIST HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
THE NARCOTIST HABIT. How It Differ* from Alcoholism—The lln■peakuble 31 aery of It. [National Review.] The first indulgence is in some sense legitimato, is almost enforced, either by acute pain or chronic insomnia. The latter is perhaps the more dangerous. Tne pain, if it last for weeks, forces recourse to the doctor before the habit has become incurable, Sleeplessness is a more persistent, and to most people much less alarming thing; and it is, moreover, one with which the doctors can seldom deal save through the very agents of mischief. Neuralgia, relieved for a time by chloroform or morphia, may be cured by quinine; sleeplessness admits of hardly any cure but such complete change of life as is rarely possible, at least to its working victims. And the narcotist habit once formed, neither pain nor sleeplessness is all that its renunciation would involve. The drunkard, it must be remembered, gets drunk, as a rule, but occasionally. Save in the last stages of dipsomania, he can do, i...
Webster* Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Webster* Eyes. [Cor. Boston Advertiser.) Mr. Allen, in his article on Daniel Webster, in The Century, mentions hi* "great, soft eyes," as bein^ peculiarly attractive to children. This reminds me of an inoident which muy perhaps show that those eyes had sometimes a different effect. Mr. Webster was once spending the summer in a town near Boston, and, as was bis custom, attended church regularly, both morning and afternoon. On one occasion it fell to the lot of an unfledged youth to try his wings in that pulpit, lie rose, as was natural, with some trepidation,to begin the service. This trepidation gradually increased, till toward the close of the hymn he faltered perceptibly, and as he sat down by the minister of the parish, he whispered: "Doctor, 1 don't know to whom those eyes belong which are directly facing me, but they are quite too much for me and I can not preach." Mr. Webster was responsible for an extemporaneous discourse that morning.
Paper-Making in Florida. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 16 April 1885
Paper-Making in Florida. [Troy Times.) It is claimed that England and I'ntuci can make a better grade of tine papers than this country on account of the quality of the water, which is here injured for paper making by frequent changes in temperature. Acting upon the idea, experiments are about to be made in Florida, where the temperature is more equal. If successful, it is said a large mill, especially for the manufacture of ttner grades of stock, will be built there by Massachu setts capitalists.

A PERSIAN SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 23 April 1885
A PERSIAN SONG. (T. B. Aldrich.] Ah! sad are they who know not lore, But far from passionl* tsars ami smile* Drift down a moonless sea. beyon.t The silvery coast of fairy isle*. And sadder they whose longing lips Kins empty air, mid never toucli The dear, warm mouth of those they love; Waiting, wasting, Buffering much. But clear an amber, fine as mink, Is life to those who, pilgrim -wise. Move band in hand from dawn to dusk— Each morning nearer paradise. OIi! not for them shall angels pray, They stand in everlasting light; They walk in Allah* smiles by day And nestle in his heart by night.
PAPER AND INK [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 23 April 1885
PAPER AND INK .said To Be the Bottom Cause of 4 Chil- . dren's Defective Kyeslfht. . (Philadelphia Record. 1 A writer in The Popular Science Monthly, Samuel Yorke, at Lee, says that "there are records of the examinations of the eyes of 45,000 school-chil-dren, of all ages and grades, white and colored, and it has been proven that nearsightedness, increases from class to class, until, in the highest grades, it has actually been developed in as many as 60 or 70 per cent, of all the scholars." The causes, he says, to which this deterioration of eyesight has been attributed are alleged to be cross-light from opposite windows, light shining directly on the face, insufficient light, small typos, and to the position of the desk, forcing the scholar to bend over and bring the eyes too close to the book or writing-paper, etc. But he declares that were all these defects remedied the integrity of the eye would not be restored nor its deterioration prevented. The el^ief causes of the evil, the ...

The Mouth American Pitpaw. . Louisville Courier-Joiimal.l . Mention has been made in all the newspapers of a wonderful tree in South America, the green fruit of which boiled with the toughest meat will render it us delicate as tenderloin. This is none other than the Carica papaya or papaw. So many of our people now speud the winter months in Bermuda thai the tree must be familiar to them. II is very common there and also in the West India islands. The tree grows to the height of thirty feet. The bole is as straight as an arrow, and the foliage is entirely at the top, like the palm, the fruitgrowing close to the trunk among the palmatisected leaves. When green it is used as a vegetable and is generally cooked with the meat with which it is to be eaten. Having attained its, growth the papaw often measures twelve or fifteen inches in circumference. It is a golden color when ripe and the flavor is delicious The fruit is filled with seeds, which are removed, and the pulp in eaten from th...

Now ITkuilw for Hiimaulty. (Lilian WhWng'l L*MW.] Between the metaphysical cure ami the hot water euro there teem* a new promise for humanity. Tho "hot water craze" nourishes here in all its phases. At Hartford a distinguished physician lectured on its use tba other day, laying down some known rules for its guidance, recommending a goblotful at lir.st waking in the morning, and also an hour and a half, with aJMoluta punctuality, before each menl. The temperature, he wid, should be increased us fast a* the patient could bear it. and ■boul I l«o at lea-t I in degrees, Tho use of oold iiuids is absolutely prohibited, mid with all patients it is better and with HUUfI absolutely necessary to refrain also ■ from sweets and pastry. Most people, ton, would find the effect far better to refrain also from coffee and tea. It is incredible to one who has not tried it, to experience the stimulus and the elasticity of feeling produced by using the hot water aright, and abstaining from all pastry,...

ll.iir TrtMMi Vai'y lit Ulttmotrr. [Scientific KxchangeJ The diameter of trees is said to vary uot only from summer to winter, but from day to day. They are larger from noon to twilight the next morning than from twilight until noon; they are smaller in winter than in summer. Water and the sap of trees expand not only in proportion as they rise above, but also as they go below the freezing point. Low temperature a* well as high promotes evaporation, and tho trees evaporate from thoir branches in winter, and so tho colder tho weather the more they shrink. The American Society for Psychical Research, organized in Boston, has established a branch in New York. Tlio object is the excellent one of apprehending scientifically the mysterious hypnotic and clairvoyant states.
THE PAMPAS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 23 April 1885
THE PAMPAS. Peculiar Characteristics of ttio Oreat rinliw Kxtendlng' From the An.loi to the Aruaxon H»sln. The peculiar characteristics of these vast level plains which descend from the Andes to the great river basin in unbroken monotony are the absence of rivers or water storage, and the periodical occurrence of droughts, or "siooofl," in the summer months, These conditions determine the singular character both of its Horn and fauna. The soil is naturally fertile and favorable for the growth of trees, and they grow luxuriantly wherever they are protected.

ABOUT STEEPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 23 April 1885
ABOUT STEEPLES. Som* True Stories About Climbing tli* Splrm of Public nulldliifti. A great many yars ago a hiirrioano occurred in Utlca, X. Y. Just as it began it was noticed that a heavy swing sign iv front of a storn was held out in a horizontal position for some time. Beforo long t.h« forco of the wind increased to such a degree that several houses on (icnessee Street Hill were unroofed, and the spire of the Second Presbyterian Church was thrown to the ground. After the storm wu* over it was di»covered that the rod holding the weather-vano on the top of the tall steeple of the First Presbyterian Church was bent so that it became nearly horizontal. It was unsightly; but how to repair the injury was the question. It would be no easy task, as there was a large ball, or globe, on the rod below Ihe vane. After awhile a sailor offered his service. He ascended the steeple, and climbed the rod until he oamo just beneath the globe. Then he throw a rope out a good many times, until, after ...

Social entertainment is a fine art. A dinner may bo made the occasion for a display of the highest refinement. In tho arrangement of the table, the choice of tho menu an*' the selection of wines there is opportunity to exercise great taste, intellectual accomplishment and a nice artistic sense. When tho aim is to minister solely to the sensual appetite and to gratify a barbaric desire for display, the dinner becomes only nn'affair for tho upholsterer, tho florist and the caterer; the long ...
