What Kan Indicate. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 14 May 1885
What Kan Indicate. Harper'a Baxar.l Large, fleshy ears, especially those which have the lobes of the ears red, show coarseness of nature and sensuality. If the ears stand forward so as to show their entire form when the face is seen from the front, it denotes rapacity and cruelty. Ears close to the head show refinement and susceptibility. Long-shaped but small ears indicate refinement; a very small ear close to the head shows delicacy of perception, refinement, but also timidity. The ears if set in too sloping a direction show timidity; if too upright, animal instincts, courage amounting to cruelty, especially if they obtrude out from the head. A thin ear shows delicacy and poetry of feeling; a thick ear the reveres. A wide space between the wing of the nose and the ear-hole shows coarseness of nature; too little space meanness and coldness of temperament. Ears of a deep red color show animal instincts; perfectly colorless ears denote timidity and want of warmth of temperament. An e...

Concisely Stated. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 14 May 1885
Concisely Stated. 11-nittln-M.ro Household.] There never was a better example of the concise form of expression common to real western Americans than the answer of the man of the Sierras, who, when asked about the character of a neighbor, replied, "Mister, I don't know very much about him; but my impression is that he'd make a first-class stranger."
POETIC INDIAN NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 14 May 1885
POETIC INDIAN NAMES. The Thankless Task Performed by the Iconoclast—Literal Translation. iCharlaston News and Courier.] It is not that the savage of old times has changed—we are only coming to know him better. Chingachgook and Uncas and Hiawatha and Fowhatan, and all the rest of them, were the same as their descendants and representatives of to-day, only we look at them afar off, through the cloudy, softening atmosphere of fiction and of history which is but little better than fiction. The noble red man of to-day eats grasshoppers and seldom bathes, and there is good reason to believe that Ked Jackett and King i'hilip were not insensible to the attractions of roast dog as an article of diet. The poetry with which the race has been invested does not pertain to them. It had its origin and end in the imagination of those who have rhapsodized concerning them, and the true, original savage wm ever and remains a heathen and nothing more—until he is civilized. In no particular, perhaps, is...
Manners and Man. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 14 May 1885
Manners and Man. IH. N. Oxenham.] Not always the men who have most completely mastered the secrets of medical science or who have cured the greatest number of their patients. Few peo pie inquire or care about that. The velvet tread, the unctuous pressure of the hand, the silvery Intonation, the sympathetic yet reassuring smile, these are the infallible passports to many hearts, and, what is more, to many pockets. The Job's comforter, who insists with obtrusive honesty on telling disagreeable truths, who pronounces with merciless fidelity the death warrant of the patient whom no human skill can save, and refuses to be feed by the interesting hypochondriac who likes to combine the luxury of valetudinarianism with the luxury of health, wUI too often at best be treated with cold respect.

Tho men are extremely polite, and 1 have not yet soen a woman Standing In v car while a scut was occupied by a, man. What struck me M being most remarkable was the universal politeness with which all women are treated. If an old, awkward and ragged negresa climbs into a car, three or four men are on their foot at once, offering her their seats, and tho far,) is passed up to the box with as much courtesy as a duchess could desire.

Veililu Kebullt l.nrv Seven Years. [New York Tinms.) I n Japan earthquakes have had a very noticeable influence in determining the nature of the buildings.

Fire almost invariably follows a great earthquake in Japan. •

Do Not Cat Jwiough. [Dr. \Vm. A. Hammond. | I am quite sure that the great majority of persons the world through do not eat enough.
