STORY OF ELECTRA, GODDESS OF POWER WHO DISAPPEARED FROM OLYMPUS, by The Los Angeles Times, November 28, 1915

"It is easy to understand that Electra, Goddess of Electricity, lived many ages before her time. It is equally clear that the imperial daughter of Jove was not appreciated in her day. Of all the gods and goddesses that inhabited the lofty mount of ancient Greece, perhaps this serious-minded miss was the only one who really tried to alleviate the burdens and toils of mortals. She came into being to spread over the world her magic power that peace and prosperity might cover the earth."

ACROSS THE SIERRAS ON HORSEBACK, by James H. McBride, M. D., 1904

"Down at home the rumbling of cars and wagons, the noisy scramble of men, the infinite discordances of civilization leave little room for thoughts that are higher than a sky-scraper or bigger than an income. Up here one sits and walks with Nature. He is part of her quiet and unhurried life, and sees her vast order go serenely on. The life history of a decaying tree is appealing in its slow tragedy; the crumbling rocks that time has chiseled to strange forms have almost a human interest."
