Hews and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 September 1880
Hews and Notes. There are over half a million Free Masons in the United States. Mr. Hayes is the first President that has visited the Pacific Coast, while in office. Eggleston, author of "Hoosier Schoolmaster," is preparing a "History of Life in America." A collection of sketches written by Dickens, have recently been unearthed by Mr. Bently, and will shortly appear in a volume entitled the" "Mudfog Papers," and be issued by Holt, New York. Americans like solid reading as well as fiction, if the fact that over 35,000 sets of the two authorized editions of the new "Enoyclopadia Britanniea," and several thousand sets of the Philadelphia reprint is any evidence. Foreign gt&gt;ld is now flowing freely to this country. The Government officials at Washington have published an estimate that the receipts of foreign gold will average four million dollars a week till November Ist. , I The French Government propose shortly to pass a law for the sale of that part of the Crown Jewels tha...

The Two Giants. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 September 1880
The Two Giants. THE LARGEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. Mother Nature is, in the main, a steady-going old dame, but now and then she abandons her regular rules and methods, and turns out some very queer pieces of handiwork. "Freaks of nature," we say; and the phrase is not a bad one, as applied to those unfortunate specimens of humanity who come into the world with a superfluous cranium, or an extra complement of legs. It is a questien whether the spectacle of such "monsters" is not likely to have a revolting effect on the average mind. No one but a person animated by a spirit of scientific curiosity, or by . morbid and unhealthy tendencies can find much pleasure in .gazing on objects like these, whose misfortune, one would think, had best be buried from the world. But nature's freaks tend sometimes in an opposite direction; now and then she raises instead of lowering the physical standard of the race. It is not often that this occurs, and when it does, most men feel their interest aroused...

The Dublin Water Works. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 September 1880
The Dublin Water Works. Dublin, Alameda Co., Cal., Sept. 15, '80 Editor Herald: One of the most important improvements ever made on a piece of private property in this or adjoining counties, was successfully carried through a few days ago on the ranch of Mr. C. M. Dougherty, of this place. A white; sulphur spring, situated about one mile in a direct line from his residence, has been so successfully manipulated by him that water now comes to our very doors, and that gift of nature, which in its natural state, and by nature's help, only, ran to waste, has, by the enterprise of man, been turned into such channels as to lead it to the profit and use of mankind. As the water trickles from Mother Earth it is caught in a basin formed by bank, which is in the shape of a horseshoe with a brick wall (15 inches thick) across the open end—Very near to the top of this brick wall, a three inch pipe projects into the basin, which carries the water through a strainer. Some 200 feet, to a large filt...

Two Ways of Looking at it. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 September 1880
Two Ways of Looking at it. "Look upon this picture, and onthi9." The vicinity of the late fire at Washington Corners has assumed a cheerless like and dull appearence. This business put more vitality in the "Coiners" than any other business they had. and of course its disappearance will be felt throughout the entire place.—Newark Enterprise. Our quiet town has hardly known itself the last week The clanging of the school bell on Friday morning iast week, ushered in a short season of bustle and excitement. Water wagons have been going day and night, .vagon loads of the workmen engaged at the ruins, going to and from their work, have done not a little to add to the turmoil, and there has been an exhilarated condition generally. Among the losers by the fire there is manifested a more cheerful condition. It is a relelf to find that the loss will- not be as great as was feared.— Washington Independent.
