The German Minister in Bogota, Colombia. has sent to his government a detailed report on the emerald mines of Muso, in the department of Boyaca. These mines have undergone many vicissitudes. After the country broke a way from Spain they were at first held by I’oyaca and worked for its benefit in an indolent sort of way. Then the national government laid claim to them and they were shiftlessly worked by various concession holders.

NIGHT WATCH AT SEA. Wteu Eyes that Love Nature Find Much to Look At. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 January 1908
NIGHT WATCH AT SEA. Wteu Eyes that Love Nature Find Much to Look At. How much a watch afforded to an eye that loved nature! I have been bored so often by descriptions of scenery that I am warned here to put a sharp check on my memory, lest it run away with me, and my renders seek to ascape by falling off, says Capt. A. T. Mahan, in Harper’s Weekly. I will forbear, therefore, any attempt at portraiture and merely mention the superb aurora borealis which illuminated several nights of the autumn of 1859, perceptibly affecting the brightness of the atmosphere, while we lay becalmed a little north of the tropics. But other things I shall have some excuse for telling, because what my eyes used to see then few mortals will see again. Travel will not reach it; for though here and there a rare sailing ship is kept in a navy for occasional instruction, otherwise they have passed away forever, and the exceptions are but curiosities reality has disappeared. They no longer have life and are now ...

BORAX IS NATURE’S MINE OF PURITY FOR DAIRY UTENSILS [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 January 1908
BORAX IS NATURE’S MINE OF PURITY FOR DAIRY UTENSILS Borax is first, a cleanser that removes dirt and grease with surprising ease; second, it is a sweetener that makes fragrant any surface that has grown musty or stale from neglect; third, it is an antiseptic or destroyer of germs. It prevents the development of bacteria or mouldy growths. With all this it is perfectly free from harm in its resulting effects. The farm churn is kept free from that stale odor if it is washed with borax in the following proportions—one tablespoonful of borax to a quart of water. The dairy room has nothing about it but the pleasant aroma of fresh milk and cream and sweet butter if it is kept clean with borax. There will be no soapy smell and no lurking hint of something gone wrong. The cream crocks take on an extra freshness when washed with borax and water in the following proportions —one tablespoonful of borax to a quart of water. This preserves the fresh flavor of the cream. The farm cream separator ...
