Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877
Why is a young lady just from board ing school like a building committee ? Because she is ready to receive proposals. Why is a criminal who suffers the death penalty by hanging like a flogged sailor ? Because he suffers at the rope's end. Why are country girls' cheeks like well-printed cotton ? Because they are "warranted to wash and keep "thej|» color." What cord is it in which you can find knots that no man living ever tied, and no man living can untie ? Why, a cord of wood.
THE WESTER WINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877
THE WESTERN WINDS. JOHN G. WHITTIER. Yet on my cheek I feel the western wind, And hear it telling to the orchard trees. And to the faint and flower-forsaken bees. Tales of fair meadows, green with constant streams, And mountains rising blue and cool behind, Where in moist dells the purple orchis gleams, And starred with white the virgin's bower is twined. So the o'er wearied pilgrim, as he fares Along life's summer waste, at times is fanned, Even at noontide, by the cool, sweet airs Of a serener and holier land. Fresh as the morn, and as the dewfall bland. Breath of the blessed heaven for which we pray, Blow from the eternal hills !—make glad Our earthly way !
THE OLD SWORD. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877
THE OLD SWORD. Leave the old sword its nielie upon the wall ; Oon't let them take it down when I am gone. I love to watch the rroaslet shadows fall From the fjreat banner on the marble btone j But you may bring a lady here belike Who'll want her velvet and china there. Give her her way, l&gt;oy, none of us are alike, But bid her fancies the old ttword spare. When the oak logs were blazing on the hearth, I've leant, a child, against my grandsire'u knee. Leaving the dancers and the yule-tide mirth. To hear his tale of ancient chivalry ; How, when the Boot! were pouring down the pass, And " Douglas ! Douglas 1" thrillid the tossing fray, His sire, alone, unaided as he was. With yon good blade nujiuld and turned the day. And my brave father— he who died, yon know. When conquering Marlborough awept the foreign plains— With the torn flag he captured froln the foe. Sent back the sword, last pledge of glorious gains ; My mother made me press my baby kiss Upon its jagged, burnished s...
My Lily of the Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877
My Lily of the Valley. "Peep !" It was a cheery, almost childish voice, well known and loved by me; and yet I started in half afright, so deep was my reverie. Reveries, in the majority of cases, probably, have love for their inspiring god; but this was an exceptional one, else I had surely been prepared for any such surprise as this, from the very priestess herself of love. Not tbat she acknowledged it, or I, either, for that matter. But we were both finite, and love is infinite. "You little puss!" I exclaimed, "how you frightened me." "Do I look like a fright, then in my masquerading ?" "Of course not. Yon are always charming. But your voice—" "Was harsh and —" "How dexterously you do fish for compliments this afternoon. You know your voice is soft and musical, for I have told you so several times; and—" "Ha, ha, ha ! go on." "It was that very sweetness and softness that startled me, being so antipodal to my thoughts just then." "There !" a sudden seriousness settling over her mann...
Notes for Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877

White bonnets, either of felt or plush, are among the latest importations. The Cloisonne enamel, so sought after in articles of virtu, is now used for jewelry. The newest Princess dresses are made with square trains and entirely without drapery. The newest percales arc in India designs and dark colors, like those seen in cashmere shawls. Glasses are now made of frosted glass, in antique forms and patterns, the monogram being in color. Bangle-rings, made of five or six narrow gold rings held by one clasp, are the novelty for finger-rings. Large scarfs are used as strings for opera hats, attached in such a manner as to form a cape at the back of the bonnet. Honeycomed toweling is made up in handsome quilts, by being worked in diamond patterns of floral designs in pink, blue or amber wools. Unbleached muslin is the latest novelty for bedroom window-curtains,...

A Dangerous Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 28 March 1877
A Dangerous Adventure. [WUITTKS FOR THE LIVERMORE HERALD.J On the Coast of Northern California, fronting with weather-beaten breast the vast Pacific Ocean, is a great promontory, rearing its head to the heigh 1 of two thousand feet from the water below. Rising sheer from the breakers at high water, Gold Bluff, as it is called, is hut the termination of conglomerate chains ami ranges of mountains, so broken as to make the country inland one of the roughest ever trodden by the loot of man. The traveler from Kuteka to Crescent City, must pass between this bluff and the breakers. Inland, no man Could pass. At U&gt;W tide, this is entirely feasible, the entire distance, about ten miles, being easily crossed bet.re the tide rises sutlit iently to prevent. But the passage is not without danger, by any means. Many who had attempted it had never afterwards been set □ alive, perishing, none knew how. except by surmise. I had lived in California many years : in fact, was a *49er, and h...

Tin y showed si tine elegant glass chandeliers and some specimens of church windows, which seemed peculiarly rich and soft m color as if the shades belonged to the material of which the glass was made, instead of the coloring matter being incorporated with the surface as in most cases. One of Hie most attractive displays in the whole buildiiiL r was that of coloring materials. First, a monstrous block of ultramarine, surrounds! by all the kindred shades and tints, from this deep color, so deep that it seemed impenetrable, shading off lighter, lighter, lighter, until compare 1 with the mother mass we almost doubt whether they are really blue at all, or whether they only catch the tint from its reflection; then a case of dyes of hard, metallic appearance, fairly stony in their shimmering reflection of the light running through all the grades of the different colors so gradually that the difference could only he dete...
