OUR ATTITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
OUR ATTITUDE. The story that the Democrats Intend to remain In office during several months of next year by bringing legal proceedings to contest Daly's right to the office, are entirely 'Irresponsible and wholly without foundation. If the result of the recount leaves. Daly In the lead the Democrats will gracefully retire and give him the undisturbed' possession. The first principle of Democracy Is that the will of the people is the supreme law. Whatever it was that led the people to r agister their choice in favor of the Non-partisan party, that choice will be respected by the Democratic party. If they have been misled by false representation the lies will come home to the perpetrator of them. v If they have been blinded and deluded by their own prejudices, their eyes will some day be opened. Mr. Daly, 'personally, will be the Mayor of Cambridge during the year 1904. He will take an oath to administer the city's affairs for the benefit of the whole people. His duty to do this will ...
ENCOURAGING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
ENCOURAGING. Cambridge has seen two Democratic victories and many Democratic defeats, but never has she suffered a defeat which had in It 30 many of the elements of victory as that which the Xon-partlsans inflicted on the Democrats at the recent election. Under circumstances which warranteei' the Non-partisan leaders in predicting a victory sufficiently decisive to vindicate their cause with unqualified emphasis, the Democrats have succeeded In holding (their own to such an extent as to make the margin between the two parties equal to about two votes in each precinct throughout the city. Various causes have been assigned for the defeat of the Democratic party, any one of which would have been sufficient to change the result of the elect In favor of the present administration. Re these speculations as they may. one thing la true: Cambridge Is a Democratic city. It may not. always be under the control of the Desmocratlc party as the result of the last election goes to show. It may som...
GOOD GOVERNMENT LEAGUE METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
GOOD GOVERNMENT LEAGUE METHODS. The good government league will be a factor for good only to the extent in which they record truthfully the acts of our public servants, whether elective or appointive. The members of this organization must not allow their likes or dislikes in party politics to cloud nny Issue or so blind them as to see no evil, where evil exists and no virtue where virtue Is apparent. During the recent campaign this organization sent their paper to certain voters. There should be no selected list to whom facts should be given. They should be freely distributed to all voters irrespective of party or locality. The "league" must not deceive the voters. They should give the voters the truth even though the same be Injurious to their own personal friends or helpful to political opponents. They should satisfy the people that they make a thorough Investigation Into all records and official acts. The moment that they fall to make a proper investigation, from that moment the ...
PRODIGAL COVENEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
PRODIGAL COVENEY. We learn that John W. Coveney in ills desire to be president of the board of aldermen, and which the Non-par-tisans are determined he shall not be, has made overtures to the Democrats for their support and Is willing to have by-gones be by-gones and come back into the fold and again be a loyal Democrat. Mr. Coveney, like the Bourbons, learns nothing and probably forgets nothing. He made hjs bed In the Xonpartlsans Chamber and like the ill political bird that he is. he fouled his bed in the Democrat's nest before he left it. If now like the prodigal he has become tired of the husks and Xonpartisan swine, and desires to return to the party which has given him its confidence and which he has betrayed without cause, it should be In an humbler way, rather than as an aspirant for an office which, when given u&gt;m he proved- himself unworthy of. We read somewhere that when an unclean spirit Is put out of a person It wanders about finding no rest, and finally dete...
NOT PLAYING POLITICS (?). [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
NOT PLAYING POLITICS (?). And the Xon-partlsans still protest that they do not play politics. Is this an Instance? For some time past the superintendent of parks has been endeavoring to have an order Introduced In the common council for an appropriation for the purpose of removing the Gipsy and Brown Tall Moths. Work on the extermination of these pests should be commenced Immediately, for the city should not wait until the early spring when the buds are appearing, as they can now be easily seen, the trees being bare. Thus far the superintendent's endeavors to get the order 1n has been unavailing, although Councilman Monk was to put In an order two weeks ago; and the present week Councilman Elmore expressed bis willingness to as- slat in the good work. The gentlemen on the Non-partisan side of the house failed to do the desired thing however, and if It is Introduced' at the next meet, lng it will then have to go over to the next city government as it has to be referred and there are ...
THE CHRONICLE'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
THE CHRONICLE'S ADVICE. The Cambridge Chronicle editorially advises the Non-partisans to go slow, and in its news column gives n long account of what la going to happen. The man who "wrote the editorial we have known for some time and know that he Is a man of sense and fairness who car.ont be Induced or Influenced to do extreme things. The man who wrote the news story we have never been able to feel the same about. He was cast in a different mold and if he could, without splitting, broaden, It would, In the long run, be more pleasant for him.
HAVE THE PLANS CHANGED? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
HAVE THE PLANS CHANGED? The desire of the Non-partisan machine to mnke Mr. Blodgett president of the board- of aldermen is more signllicant than appears to those who are not Interested! In the office. The significance of It to us Is (hat It means that Daly is to be a yearling and that Blodgett Js to be the candidate for mayor next year. We know that the Non-partlsana see now that they have not profited much by their coalition with Daly and the other deserters from the Democratic rank. The original plan was to give Daly two 3 ears, but the election has changed the calculation. Besides it Is getting to be pretty certainly recognized that Mayor Daly cannot strengthen himself with the Democrats and meet the clamor for heads made by the Non-partisan machine.
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
How long will the feeling of good fellowship last among the leaders of thi Xon-partisan party? Already the air is full of rumors of what this or that one will do, If his friend is not landed in the coveted position. There will not long be the united front presented to the enemy, for there is going to be a lot of soreness In the minds of thosu who do not get the Jobs. It is always thus. The party In power Is bound to make enemies, while the ones outside tho breastworks unltb to get in. 'The scent of battle among friends of '.wo years' standing is not afar off. the common council CapltalistsCk Mr. Samuel D. Elmore, secretary of the Xon-partisan Municipal Party of Cambridge, member of the common council from Ward 8, member-elect as a Xon-partisan from Ward 8, has heretofore been considered a very strong representative of the Xon-partisan party, but It seems as if Mb leanings politically, are for the Socialist party, as he was constant In his attendance at the recount as a representativ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE TWO PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
CORRESPONDENCE. THE TWO PARTIES. It Is Interesting to go back to the early days of the Republic and learn something of tho formation of the parties; tho history of these parties, the men who contained them, and the classes of which they were composed. Jefferson, who declared that "these states are. and of right ought to be, free and Independent." and that "all men are born free and equal." la looked upon as the father of the Democratic party. In a letter to William Johnson In IS2:&gt;. Jefferson gives us the history of both parties. Ho tells us that at the formation of our government, there were many who had formed their political opinions on European writings and practices, believing that the experience of old countries, and especially of England, abusive as It was, to be a safer guide than mere theory. The doctrines of Europe were that men In numerous associations could not be restrained within the limits of order and Justice, except by forces physical and moral, wielded o...

A Rocking Shrine. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
A Rocking Shrine. The moat wonderful temple In ttas world is built on a rocking stone on the summit of a mountain In northern India which la over 20,000 feet high. The rock weighs many thousands of tons, but is balanced on so (ins a point that a comparatively light pressure is sufficient to make it sway. Hindoo priests teach their followers that this rock was placed In position by the help of the gods, and thus they add considerably to the feeling of awe which they desire to create. Worshipers at this shrine must first make a perilous ascent of the mountain. Then they spend seven days of preparation In a temple built on the solid mountrln before tbey are permitted to make the final passage to the mysterious rocking stone. To reach this It Is necessary to cross a bridge over a great chasm, for nature and man have combined to make this Hindoo shrine difficult of access. After crossing the bridge the pilgrim mounts a ladder, to which he clings in terror for bis life here and in the her...
The Human Body. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
The Human Body. The blood, muscles, bones and other parts of the human body are composed of many chemical constituents, and a correct chemical analysis would be long and tedious. The specific gravity of the blood is 1,028, and 770 parts of every 1,000 are water. Of the other parts chloride of sodium, chloride potassium, carbonate magnesia, calcium phosphate, cusjdum lactate, potassium phosphate, sodium carbonate and other constituents are found. This Is generally true, with variations also, of tissues and bone. The fundamental substance of bone is composed of organic matter, combined with various Inorganic salts, in which calcium phosphate largely predominates. In addition the bones contain calcium carbonate, calcium fluoride, magnesium phosphate, sodium phosphate and sodium chloride.
Buttoning a Coat. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
Buttoning a Coat. Buttoning a man's coat from right to left was the original way, when our ancestors, wrapped in skins, held the right edge with the left hand .and naturally inserted a rWtteuing" thorn with the right hand. This right to left custom has been retained by the Hebrew priests in their garb to this day. When fighting men became necessary and swords and knives bad to be drawn by the right band from the left side, the edge of the coat, buttoned from right to left, was found to be in the way, and men began buttoning from the left Nonligbting women and priests continue to follow the old custom.

Keep Moving. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 26 December 1903
Keep Moving. The heavens themselves run continually round; the world is never still; the sun travels to the east und to the we-st; the moon Is ever changing In Its course; the stars and planets have their constant motions; the uir we breathe is continually agitated by the wind, and the waters never cense to ebb and Cow, doubtless for the purpose of their conservation and to teach us that we should ever be In action.— Burton.

A Contract In Lungs. Three human lungs lie next one another In the anatomical museum at Edinburgh university. The first Is that of an Eskimo and is snow white. In life this would, of course, be ruddy from the presence of blood. The third is that of a coal miner and is coal black. The intermediate one is that of a town dweller and is a dirty slate gray, as are the lungs of all dwellers In cities at this moment.
