THE HAKKASSKD WITNESS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
THE HAKKASSKD WITNESS. A Fanny Scene That Took Place ln an English Court. An action was brought against the owner of a wagon, which, by the reckless driving of the wagoner, had forced a poor donkey against a wall, and there pressed the poor creature to death. Compensation was therefore sought by its proprietor for the loss of the animal and its services. The trial caused much mirth. The principal witness for the plaintiff wis the driver of the donkey, who. feeling himself very much browbeat .... by the defendant's counsel, became exceedingly .- nervous- ana contused in his evidence, which he gave with his eyes on the ground.

INEXPENSIVE SWEETS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 3 April 1890
INEXPENSIVE SWEETS. More Indigestible Than Corn _ Beef and Cabbage or Beefsteak Pie. The dainty and expensive sweets known as preserved violets, which the esthetic maiden dotes on, or pretends to, are very easily and simply prepared. Boil one pound of loaf sugar in as much water as it will absorb until, when dropped into cold water, : it becomes hard and brittle.. Throw the violets —which should be of the large double variety and with no stems— into the syrup, a few at a time, and keep them in -until, the. sugar boils again. Stir the sugar round the edge of the pan until It is white and grains, then gently stir tbe flowers about until the sugar leaves them. Drain them on a fine white cloth and set them on a sieve to dry in a slightly waim oven, turning them carefully two or : three times, and watching them lest they cool before they dry. The expense is very slight, and all the* lavender luncheons and heliotrope teas can be completed with the purple sweets that are more indigestible,...
