Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880

Our Story Teller. REBECCA, THE HRUHHER. CHARLES BARNARD. [A true story of the War of 1812 ] It was about nine o'clock in the morning when she first appeared. At once there was great excitement in the village. It was a British war-ship. What would she do? Would she tack about in the bay, to pick up stray coasters, as prizes, or would she land soldiers to burn the town? In either case there would be trouble enough. Those were sad days, those old war-times of 1812. The sight of a British war-ship in Boston Bay was not pleasant. We were poor then, and had no monitors to go out and sink the enemy or drive him off. Our navy was small, and, though we afterwards had the victory,and sent the troublesome ships away, never to return, at that time they came near enough, and the good people in Scituate Harbor were in great distress over the strange ship that had appeared at the mouth of the harbor. It was a fishing-place in those days, and the harbor was full of smacks and boats of all kinds. Th...

How the Fertility of a Farm was Restored. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880

How the Fertility of a Farm was Restored. The San Jose Mercury describes the following experience of a Pennsylvania family, in Santa Clara County: They bought a farm of 160 acres of gravelly land near tlie foot-hills. "We say they, from tlie fact that in accordance with the j old Dutch custom, the man and ' trail counseled with each other before taking an important step. Richer land would have suited them better, but the richest land ■in our valley they learned was not j the surest for crops, while the ; gravelly land, with good farming, lis absolutely sure. The land they bought had been farmed for many 'years according to the old Calif or- 1 j nia system, which means shallow ; ) plowing and cropping with grain I i every year, year in and year out, ' land annually burning the stubble! j after the crop is harvested. The \ former owners had practiced this j plan thoroughly, it being about the only thing they were thorough! in. and the system had so nearly ruined -them, that 4hey were ...

R. H. McDonald, of the Pacific ; Biak, San Francisco, offers to give j the sum of 820,000 toward the! establishment of a central Christian university in this State, providing other parties will subscribe, to the amount of $180,000. The poposifion is a fair one, and we believe that the project will be successful. i The present presidential cam- j paign is the most mild and quiet known fo:- many de<-ades. There has been but little personal abuse, the efforts of the contestants being dir c sd more towards platforms an*! national issues than men. This fact is as gratifying as it is unusual. The Board of Supervisors has J investigated the alleged "horroi" j at the county hospital, and found ' it to have but little foundation in fact.

The Boom in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 14 October 1880

The Boom in Wheat. In an editorial in this, paper five I weeks ago, we predicted a gradual jagiproveinejit in the wheat market, from ponies therein explained, and a corresponding advance in the, price of that staple commodity., This advance, we held, would not be sudden, or of great magnitude, ■. the limit being placed at $1.60 per cento] for good wheat. While the first portion of this prediction has ] happily been fulfilled, the latter we • hope may prove erroneous. It i 6, however, still our belief that we j shall not this year realize a high j price for our grain, and that the; farmer who refuses an offer of $1.60, net, will make a mistake. For two weeks past the tendency here has constantly been upward, in sympathy with the Liverpool market, which is developing a remarkable strength. Should a break occur in the present high freights, a lively flurry in prices will follow, and then will be the time for our farmers to sell. Let them all be on the watch, aud by no means commit the ...
