WATERTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887
WATERTOWN. —Just liefore election a "roorback" was started to the effect that the sympathizers with license had sent $5,000 into the town to help to carry it for license. Whether the story was believed or not, it had the efl'ect to "brace up" the temperance people, who went to work with a will, and carried the town high aud dry for water. Now comes the sequel. Many of the faithful, with visions of "boodle" before their eyes, worked all election day, hoping to receive a square day's pay for a square day's work. But the pay is not forthcoming. Xolkklv has seen tbe 8.1,000, and nohodv can find the "man who ban seen it. and the "mourners go about the streets." Moral: Get your pay in advance when you peddle votes. —Capt. J. X.

How We Taste. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887
How We Taste. Strictly speaking, with the tip of the tongue, one really c in't U&lt;t ■ at all. If y,i U put a drop of honey or oil of bitter alumnd on that part of the mouth, you will find iv, doubt that it produces no effect ot any sort; you on!y tas;e it whe I i, begins slowly to diffuse itself, and reaches the true tasting region in the middle distance. But if you put a little cayenne or mustard on the same part you will find that it bites you immediately — the experiment should be tried sparingly — while if jou 'put it lower down Irto the mouth you will swallow it almost without' noticing the pungency of the stimulant. The reason is that the tip of fie tongue is supplied inly with the nerves, which are really nerves of touch, not neives of tasie proper; they belong to a t tolly different main branch, and they go t* a different center in the brain, together with the very similar threads which supply the nerve of sm -11 for mustard and pep| er. That is why the smell and t...
Origin of Drinking the Health. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887
Origin of Drinking the Health. The apparently meaningless custom of drinking a man's health in a social glass is ancient, before you find its meaning. Win n gods were deceased ancestors, they were dined and wined aud toasted; that is, they ha.l the best of everything, for they were supposed still to be capable of hunger and thirst. But as the dead could only "smell sweet savors," and take of the odor of wine the living drank the cups &lt;for them. To drink a good cup was a religious and pious custom. So. one friend meeting another, cal.ed down the blessing of the gobs on him by drinking a god's cup with him. Of course one good turn deserves another, and the two would quaff to each other's health, instead of uttering a prayer. Nowadays, in Tom Allen's saloon, down Rogue alley, two roysterers drink healths with rosy noses and watery eyes, little knowing what it means.
Ammonia. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 March 1887
Ammonia. Ammonia, while one of the commonest products of the earth, is also one of the most useful. A few drops of it poured into hard water makes the water soft to the bauds ms silk, and this water takes the dirt off of paint more quickly than any other, takes the stains out of carpets better than anything except ox-gall, cleans combs and hair-brushes, and makes gold and silver look as good as new. A good quantity of ammonia in the water also is a very safe substitute for any soap known in washing blankets, which, unwieldy and hard to wash at the best, and ruined if soap issadirectly used upon them. Ammonia, too. rubbed with a bit of flannel on the outside of the throat, as a rubefacient, but not to the point of blistering is excellent in cases of sore throat from colds; it is useful rubbed in this way on the back of the neck for the alleviation of headache. The preparation called aromatic ammoDia is again as valuable, medicinally, as the other is in household service. Ten to twent...
