WHAT ARE WE MADE FOR? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
WHAT ARE WE MADE FOR? Just tell me what we are made for, Mr*. Simpson, if you can ? What on earth is all his life for! Life, a trifle, a mere *pan. What's a baby, crying baby? Who would care to be just that? Tossed and tumbled just at plea«ure, Scratched by every pin and cat? What's a school girl, plodding school girl, With her satchel full of books? Off to school to learn her lessons. Making faces and pot-hooks. What's a mi»s from twelve to sixteen. With her simpering sickly ways, Only wishing just for eighteen, And the hope of brighter days ? What's a girl who's got a lover ? God pity now, her little heart, If she has none, lack a daisy, Ht's is still the harder part. Then she's married, and is happy, But the cup is dashed full soon; History has fixed its measure, One month is the honeymoon. Then a wife. Ah. well-a-day, Go and ask, then, how they do; I can't tell what I got spliced for, Mrs. Simpson, now, can you? Mother! Now come pretty babies! Washing, sewing, drying tears; Thes...
SELFISHNESS A CHARACTERISTIC OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
SELFISHNESS A CHARACTERISTIC OF MAN. [Communicated.] Mankind is somewhat selfish. It is a trait horn within him. You can see selfishness in the character of Adam when he ate the forbidden fruit in the garden of Edou, which he did merely to gratify his taste aud curiosity. Again witness self when tho Lord accused htm of trespassing the law, "Eve tempted me and I did eat." He was so selfish that he did not wish to bear any of the penalty for transgression. We of course wish to prosper in all our undertakings; and we .strive to gain more and more of this world's goods. This , to a certain degree, is pcrteetly proper, and in accordance with the laws of nature. But this characteristic of selfishness is too much cultivated. We think of, and work too much for our own individual aims, aud thereby neglect to help the needy that thread our every path through life. I n this land where we boast of great wealth and power, there are thousands of persons who need our help, not | merely cheerful wo...

Hydraulics of the Ancients. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
Hydraulics of the Ancients. Among the vast works of the ancient Romans, which excite the cdtniration and surprise even of these days, not th.&lt;i least marvelous were those designed either for irrigating or draining purposes, or to furnish the inhabitants of their cities with an abundant supply of water. Father Set'chi has written a letter to the French Academy of Sciei-ces on thifcurious subject. The monuments he mentions have been mostly discoved by him in the environs of Rome. The first mentioned by him is an aqueduct built at Altari, 200 years before the Christain era. It is an inverted syphon, its lowest point being 101 metres below the orfice from which the water flowed into the town. The pipes of this aqueduct are of earthenware, buried in a thick bed of concrete; they were very firmly joined together along a length of I\\ miles. This work seems to have been the model on which Vitruvius founded his description of. syphon aqueducts. The second remarkable relic of anti...
Vitality and Cunning of the Locust. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
Vitality and Cunning of the Locust. In 1b65 I made experiments to see how soon locusts would drown. After confining them in water twelve hours, they soon showed signs of life when placed in the sunshine, and inafew minutes 1/egan to move. I tried freezing, and came to the conclusion that they could be frozen up any length of time, and the warm sunshine would again revive them. In 1847 I tried animal poisons to see what effect they would produce on locusts. I pnt the poison on celery, which the locusts prefer to other vegetables, and after observing the effect, formed the opinion that they could eat their weight of any animal poison without ill-effect to them. As soon as they batched out and began eating in April, 1875, I took a can of coal oil and a pan for the purpose of making a fagot to burn somo that had just begun to eat my wheat, coming from a sandy knoll in the field. I poured the oil in the pan, and in moving about the pan I caused two or three to leap into it. I perceived t...
The Earth Drying Up. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
The Earth Drying Up. One of the most curious and we believe well substantiate J inferences, drawn by those geologists who have devoted attention to the chemical metamorphosis which the rocks composing the crust of the earth are subjected to, says the Poh/tecJ/nie Review, is the conclusion that the earth is gradually losing its water, or drying up. It is generally assumed that the evaporation of the water from the surfaces of our oceans, lakes, rivers, etc., is practically balanced by the various forms of precipitation, rain, snow, hail, etc., from the clouds, by which it finds its way again to the earth. This is strictly true in the sense that not a particle of water passes beyond the limits of our atmosphere, and all that finds its way into the atmosphere by evaporation, sooner or later is returned again. Nevertheless, the water supply of the earth is slowly but steadily diminishing. It jis not destroyed, but is so modified as jto be no longer available for the snstei nance of anim...

A Card for Rational Readers. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
A Card for Rational Readers. Irrational 1 people always reject good, advice, and in nothing is their folly more frequently conspicuous than in ignoring precautions necessary for the retention of health. Forecast, en the other hand, is a notable characteristic of the rational, and it is the exercise of this quality which we would suggest to them. Protect the system against diseases which fasten upon the debilitate*!, the nervous and the dyspeptic, by bracing the physique, regulating the stomach, bowels and liver, and banishing despondency with the purest and most efficient of botanic invigorants, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. That these effects follow its use, and that it prevents as well as annihilates intermittent ana remittent fevers, are facts established by .indisputable evidence. To enjoy the twin blessings of "a sound m nd and a sound body" in all their pleutitude, try a course of this sterling medicine.

Unsolicited Testimony. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
Unsolicited Testimony. Fairfield, Me., April 28, 1864. Gentlemen—Seeing numerous certificates in the Maine Farmer, endorsing the merits of the Great Lung Remedy, Wistab's Balsam of Wild Chebby, I am induced and I take great pleasure in giving publicity to the great cure it accomplished in my family in the year 1856. During the summer of that year my son, Henry A. Archer, now postmaster in this place, was attacked with spitting of blood, cough, weakness of - lungs, and general debility, so much so that our family physician declared him to have a '' seated consumption." He was under medical treatment for a number of months, but received no benefit from it. At length, from the solicitation of himself and others, I was induced to purchase one bottle of Wistab's Balsam of Wild Chebbt, which benefitted him so much I obtained another, which in a short time restored him to his usual state of health. I can safely recommend this remedy to others in like condition, for it is, I think, all it p...
