An Kaster Novelty. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 30 April 1885
An Kaster Novelty. [Buffalo Courier.) There will shortly appear in our book stores an original "novelty" for Easter, designed by two Buffalo girls who have met with such unexpected encouragement among dealers to whom they have submitted their work that they have every prospect of becoming successful business women. The little ornament, wbich they have fashioned to hang on a cabinet or gas bracket Easter morning, is a white satin crescent fringed with silver spangles and dusted over with diver powder. In the same circle rests a broken egg with a cunning downy chicken peeping forth, his bright eyes Knapping mischievously from under his yellow, rczy coat. White chemiie strings form a finish and pretty means of hanging up this Easter greeting. We learn that the young women have not once introduced their design here, but have received large orders from Rochester and other neighboring places Any young lady nowadays who can get up gomething new and pretty for an inexpensive holiday souven...
Plea for Ballet Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 30 April 1885
Plea for Ballet Girls. (.Interview with a Manager.] Some people associate the ballet and all that compose it with all that is depraved, but in this, as in many other tbiugs, they are wrong. There is no season why a ballet girl should not be as respectable and re ■pected as any one else. If she happens to get into a crowd who are a trifle wild and indiscreet, the mere fact of being associated with them does not compel her to adopt their habits. Take, for example, the girls we employ when extra help is needed. Is it just to say they are immodest when in an honorable way they can add *3 or $4 to their weekly wages by appearing in tbe balletl No one would «ay that of the girls who go on the stage for fun, but when a girl is compelled by adverse circumstances to increase her income in this certain way, people say nothing but ill of her.
A Montana View of It. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 30 April 1885
A Montana View of It. [Helena Herald.] We suppose Miss Mackay, by marriage to a prince, becomes a princess. The one had wealth and the other a title, neither of which they have ever done anything to earn for themselves. The marriage is a trade in which both are as likely to be cheated as to make a winning. Wealth and title are both unsatisfying to a sensible, well-balanced mind, and still more so to a large, generous, hungry heart. We should have thought more of Miss Mackay if she had married some American of character and ability, rather one known chiefly for his name. Or if she would have married some poor young foreign artist of tlrst-rate ability we should have thought her choice more sensible and her future more likely to be happy.
WOMAN AND HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 30 April 1885
WOMAN AND HOME. SEVERE CRITICISM OF THE DECORATION OF TO-DAY. I Tribulation* of the Fa Sex— Sir*. I«»Ue'» Diamond*—Bullet Oil-In—Cooking In a Normal School—Children —Receipt*—Note*. [Edmund Russell.] In our surroundings we must avoid detachment and separation. The harmony of correspondence is much more beautiful than the harmony of contrast. The crude-t Idea of effect in furnishing rooms is to put some thing dark behind everything that is light, and something that is light behind everythat is dark merely detaching an.l separating the object from its background. This ia bad. The colors and object* should blend. A room should be like a fine orchestra, where the music comes to you in one sweep, not-broken and detached, note from note. We have no independence of judgment; that's one trouble. We go to a carpet or china store, and the merchant says, That is what you want. This U the latent thin*, just out, going to be a craze." That settles It. The question whether it is worth having or n...
Tribulation* of the Fair Sex. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 30 April 1885
Tribulation* of the Fair Sex. . [Lowell Times.] It is a dreadful bother to be a woman and do the business up in good shape. In the first place you've got to look well, or you're nobody. A man may be ever to homely and still be popular. Whiskers cover up most of his face, and if he has a big mouth nobody mistrusts it, and if he does wrinkle bad on his forehead his friends speak of his many care; and of his thoughtful disposition, and tell each other that his wrinkles are lines if thought Lines of thought, indeed, vhen in all probability his forehead is wrinkled by the bad habit he has got of scowling at hi* wife when the coffee is not strong enough. A woman must always be in good order. Her hair must always be frizzled and banged, as fashion demands, and she must powder if she has a shining skin; and she must manage to look sweet, no matter how sour she may feel; her dress must hang just so, and her lace must always be spotless, and her boot buttons always in place, and her finger-na...

GROWING OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
GROWING OLD. What to Do If One Would Grow Old Rapidly. Think you are growing old, and you will soon grow. Take your place obediently in the groove long made by custom for people of middle age or a little past it. Separate yourself entirely from the young. Regard with undisguised contempt their lack of experience. Scold at their mistakes with no effort at conciliation or making friends with them. This with them will give you your degree as "old fogy." An "old fogy 11 may be simply a child who has stopped his learning with the idea that he "knows it all." There are "old fogies" at twenty-five as well as fifty. Kill all inclination to indulge in what are called "youthful sports." Learn not to run. Cultivate in your limbs dignity, slowness, stiffness. Regard with serenity your slowly escaping vigor, suppleness and elasticity of muscle. Say it's the, inevitable way of all flesh, and because this has always been so with past generations, so it must always,be with the coming ones. Say to y...
NATURE'S RIDDLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
NATURE'S RIDDLES. The Instincts of I lie Lower Culls of Creation. Chickens, two minutes lifter they have left thf c'jjj;, will follow with their eyes tin 1 movements of crawling insects and peck at them, judging distance ami direction with almost infallible accuracy. They will instinctively appreciate sounds, readily running toward an invisible, hen hidden in a box when they hear her "call." Some young birds also have an innate, instinctive horror of the sight of a hawk and of the sound of its voice. Swallows, titmice, tomtits, and wrens, after having been coniined from birth, are capable of flying successfully at once when .liberated on their wings having attained the necessary growth to render flight possible. The Duke of Argyll relates some very Interesting particulars about the instincts of birds, especially of the water ousel, the merganser, and the wild duck. Even as to the class of beasts I tind recorded: "Five young polecats were found comfortably imbedded In dry, withered g...
PREHISTORIC DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
PREHISTORIC DOGS. The Specimen* Which Have Come Down to I, from the Stone anil llron/o Parted*. In the Danish "kitchen-middens," or heaps of household refuse, piled up by tho Sien of the Newer Stone period—a time when our Scandinavian forefathers used chipped or polished flints instead of metal for their weapons—are found bone-cuttings belonging to some species of the genus Canis. Along with these remains are some of tho long bones of birds, all the other bones of the said birds being absent. Now it is known that the bird bones hero found are the very ones which dogs can not devour, while the absent, ones are such as they can bolt with ease, and it has been ingeniously argued from this that the remains iv question did really belong to a domestic dog, as, if the animals to which they appertained had been wolves, they would have made short work of the long bones a.f well as of the. others. Other dog-bones are found in Denmark in later periods. At the time when tho flint knives wero su...
THE SHIAHS AND SUNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
THE SHIAHS AND SUNIS. A Kud Position to I'lare One in Wlio Did Mot Know Their IV. i.limit i.-. One of the most striking characteristics of the Afghan and Turcoman tribes, which has moro than once been very skillfully utilized by Russia in her operations against them, is the extreme bitterness with which they take sides iv the great controversy between &gt;Suni aud Shiah sects, which may be called the Catholics and Protestants of Lsluin. The Shiahs, who are strong in Persia, hold Mohammed's son-in-law, Ali, the fourth Caliph, to be the prophet's only legitimate successor, denouncing his three forerunners as usurpers, while the Sunis, who abound in Afghanistan, hoM a directly opposite creed. This feeling, which has made tho countless Perso-Afghan wars unspeakably ferocious, is carried to such a height that an Englishman who lately begged the lile of a wounded Persian, wa.s answered by one of his Afghan comrades: "Were be only an unbeliever I would spare him, but being a Shiah ...

THE DOMINION OF CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
THE DOMINION OF CANADA. B«t Wars »nd Inranloni—Sterility of Her Soil—Wraith of Her Forests. : 'Oath" In Boston (ilobe.] Considering her situation and scattered populace, Canada has been in more danger during the past 100 years than the United States, and has had more real wars. During her colonial period Montreal was taken two or three times and many of the people burnt at the stake. Huge armaments for those days were launched upon Lewisburg and Quebec time aiul time again. The isolated posts of France in our western regions were assaulted and the people insulted. Louisiana had her revolutions before the American occupation. When the Americans revolted they kept Canada in constant alarm. The people in distant British Columbia have been repeatedly threatened with invasion from the American side. Fenian attempts have been made on Canada, and in her.little civil wars of almost fifty years ago her authorities hanged more men for the crime of treason and rebellion than tho I niled Mates ...
Mexican Floating Garden*. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 7 May 1885
Mexican Floating Garden*. (Chicago Journal.| The floating gardens iv certain parts of Mexico are among tho greatest curiosities to be found in that country. Kays a recent visitor: "When a tract of vogetation composed of reeds, waterplants and bushes, interwoven and laced together, becomes so dense that it will bear a superstructure, strips of turf twenty to thirty yards long by two yards wide are cut from some suitable firm place, floated to it down the canal and laid upon it; this is repeated several times, and thus an island is securely raised two or three foet above tho level of the water; a littlo soil is spread over it, and it becomes a chinampa, or floating garden, on which lndiui corn, vegetables and flowers are grown. "The gardens vary in size from 100 to 200 feet in length, and from twenty to 100 iv width, according to the nature of tho vegetation which supports them. To secure these gardens iv their proper places, long willow poles are driven through thorn into tho ground ...
