ru-nu on the Baltic [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 21 May 1885
ru-nu on the Baltic IHarber's Mataiioe ] A more beautiful farming country does sot exist than that along the southern shore of the Baltic. No fences mark the boundaries of the fertile farms which stretch away over the rolling hills to the distant horizon, all aglow with yellow grain. At intervals a clump of trees, often seen intensely dark against the ripe grain, shows where a farm-house stands, and giant windmills swing their sails on the highest hill-tops. The highway, a finely built chaussee, leads straight across the country, only curving to pass through some Tillage. Mountain, ash, birch, and cherry trees border the road in an un- broken rank. In the ditches and by the road grow countless varieties of wild flowers—a perfect paradise for the botanist. From the highest hill the eye meets to the south a succession of grain fields. To the north, beyond the soft undulations of the cultivated hills, the Baltic shimmers in the strong sunlight, a narrow line, sharp at the horizon. The ...

BRILLIANTS. In opinions look not always back; Tour wake is ■ethiag, wind the coming track; Leave what you've done for what you have to do; Don't be '-consistent," but be simply true. —[Holme*. The stars thai disappear at morn, Oh, think not they are fled; They are not lost, they are not gone, But 'md the glory shed Around them by the source of light. It is the night that* dead. —[Anon Faustine, lift high the beaker, Lift high the wan white wine; Ere grow those mad eyes meeker. Make first thy mad ness mine. Make mine the red lips treasure Too fierce to melt in love, And give to pain the pleasure— My paralytic doTe. —[H. C. Bunner

Now Solution of ma Old Paul*. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 21 May 1885
Now Solution of ma Old Paul*. [Arkaosaw Tr»v«ler j A German physicist attributes the well-known phenomenon of the apparent enlargement of the sun and moou, when rising or Betting, to two physiological causes. One is the greater •ensitiTeness of the eye to angular magnitudes when seen horizontally; and the other is an effect of the dilation of the pupil under the feebler light reaching us from the heavenly bodies when near the horizon, such dilation tending to magnify the Images received, lie finds experimental proof of these theories, and shows the absurdity of the common explanation that intervening objects enable us better to estimate the real size of the sun and moon.

BOARDING IN NEW YORK SOME Of THE MISERIES OP METROPOLITAN LIFE. • Phenomenal Prices of Rooms —The Mysterious Resources of Many Boarders. People Who Lire in Fireleu Hall Kooms. i ■ . [Special Correspondence.! , New York. . It is not easy to live in New York unless you are a millionaire. If you belong to the numberless multitude who i board in hotels and boarding houses you grow more familiar with the wormwood of life than you ever were before. Here the boarder is more helpless, more homeless and hopeless than elsewhere. The city is overcrowded, the people must have food and shelter, the boarder may be very uncomfortable, but he knows that he may move a dozen times and not better himself a partielo. Besides, he has had some experience in bunting board, the forlornest of all forlorn experiences. He learns in time —it doesn't take long, either — to put up with almost anything, and be glad of a shelter at any price. There is no scarcity of boarding houses. They are innumerable. The sands...
I.imoln aa a Gentleman [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 21 May 1885
I.imoln aa a Gentleman Pretensions to technical gentility ljncoln had none, and with a lino manliness disclaimed any. Apropos of his deficiencies from the point of view of conventional high breeding, he once took occasion to remark in the course of the joint debate with Douglas: "I set out in this campaign with the intention of conducting it strictly as a gentleman, in subHtance, at least, if not iv outside jmlish. The latter I shall uever be. but that which constitutes the inside of a gentleman I hope I understand, and I am not less inclined to practise than another." The fashions of politeness change, but we inja^inu that men like Abraham Lincoln will never go out of fashion. It WH while Lincoln lived at J!ew Kalem that he managed to buy a second-hand copy of lUackstone's Commentaries and tiegan to study law. Other books, however, ho had none, nor would he have had any means of getting any had not an old friend and fellowsoldier in the Black Hawk war, who had become a successful l...

'ilmv uu 111 «U He.. [Exchange. 1 Determined to secure a free ride «cross the water, the .stowaway secretes himself on some steamer or sailing vessel which is shortly to leave port, keeps securely out 01 sight until the craft is so far at sea that the o liters can not put him off and make him walk, when he emerges from his billing place and requests to be introduced to the captain. He informs the latter of the circumstances under which he was driven to steal a riJfc, expresses regret ftt having committed the laiveuy, as the captain is sure to term it, offers hia labor, skilled or unskilled, as it may be, and pleads for mercy. Should the captain be a "jolly sett-d&gt;g," the stowaway usually fares excellently, does but httle work, and reaches his destination healthier and happier than if ho had paid for his steerage fare. A sea captain, however, it usually disposed to look upon the stowaway, or "sea tramp," as he is sometimes called, much as a lonely farmer looks upou the ave...

A Much \i«-.leil Language. [St. James' Gazette.] In an interesting contribution to The National Review on the wild tribes of the Sierra, Miss Gordon-Cumraings tells 08— first, that every tribe has a language of its own, known only to it« membersand nest, that "the curse of Babel would weigh heavily on the great Indian nation were it not for a silent language of signs which is used by all alike. It is frequently used even in family parties, or while on the march or •a hunting expeditions, or at other times when silence is deemed desirable." It is quite as clear as the method! of communication used in deaf and dumb asylums, and more "rapid, as certain signs are used to express whole phrases and symbolical ideas." White men who have become intimate with the Indians say that if a stranger could steal unawares near an Indian camp ha "might well marvel at the occasional bursts of laughter while not a voice was to be heard; yet every individual gathered around the camp-fire is all the whil...

Tln&lt; Weird lilrd of the Souili Allan [Detroit Freo Titus.] As tho craft bowls along in the south Atlantic a new world seems to open upon the voyager. The constellation of the Southern Cross has scarcely become familiar to him before ho begins to see animal, or rather bird, life altogether now to him. One of the greatest novelties of this kind that en» ever impress itself upon tho mind of man is tho albatross. Some morning the lounger will reach tho dock and, casting his eye in the wake of the ship to juc^a her speed, will sec a speck just above tho horizon far astern. Growing larger and larger as it approaches, it finally develops into a gigantic bird, and tho old sailor, con ning tho helm, will gruffly suggest the fact that it is proper for the tyro to wet his first introduction to an albatross. There is something inexpressibly weird about the bird itself, as well as in its manner of flight, and it is matter of little wonder to those who have seen it, that a brain such a...
