An Escape from the City. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 15 February 1908
An Escape from the City. Why will people persist in slaving their lives away in a dirty city, while thousands of acres of rich agricultural land are going begging, asks Robert Franklin in the Technical World Magazine, in his article “Homesteads for the Asking.” Uncle Sain is trying hard, literally, to give away some of the finest farming land in the United States, but the people refuse to see the opportunity. Quite the most peculiar state of affairs that has been known in this country for some decades, exists at the present time in north-cen-tral Nevada, where, with a large and inviting territory newly made available for homesteads, there is a dearth of settlers. Ordinarily when good lands are offered by the government free of charge, there is a rush for the scene, every possible patch being eagerly pre-empted; but in this instance, strangely enough, about a million acres of the finest soil in the world, with a plentiful water supply furnished by irrigation, are going begging. And t...

Cara That Will Not Telescope. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 15 February 1908
Cara That Will Not Telescope. All-steel passenger equipment for universal use has been the dream of master car builders for years, and this dream is about to be realized on all the lines included in the vast Harriman system, says J. Mayne Baltimore, in Technical World Magazine. In his article entitled “All-Steel Railway Coaches,” he tells about the gradual perfection of the all-steel car, and prophesies that Harriman’s lead in the direction of better passenger equipmen will be followed by many other up-to-date roads. The Pullman Company will be the first to fall in line and adopt the all-steel construction. The principal objection to the plan has been the excessive weight of a car made entirely of metal. But experiments made by the Southern Pacific have recently developed the possibility of producing a steel car weighing not more than ten per cent over the wooden coaches. This is done by using lighter plates of greater strength, which are made especially for this class of constructi...

An ITnpleanant Office. The task assigned to the bell boy at a small New England hotel was no sinecure, and he realized it, for the old gentleman who had requested that he be awakened for an early breakfast was extremely deaf. “I don’t know what I’ll do about the man in No. 41, that wanted to go off on the 7 o’clock train,” the bell boy announced breathlessly to the proprietress. “Haven’t you waked him up yet?” demanded that brisk person. “I’ve waked him three times,” said the boy, sulkily, “but he hasn’t heard me yet.' Everybody else-has. though, on that floor. I know, because they’ve all hollered to me to stop battering on their doors.”

Washington. —General Bell, chief of staff, United States Army, recommended to the House Committee on Military Affairs an Increased pay schedule for enlisted men of the army along the lines laid down in the Dicks-Saprou bill, but differing somewhat in scale. His recommendation contained four distinct features: Creation of the grade of warrant officer for the promotion of deserving non-commissioned officers; readjustment of initial rates of pay so that they shall range from $l5 to $42, as against the range of from SIG to $7O in the navy; cash bonus of three months’ pay for re-enlistment, and an increase of from $1 to $0 in pay for high attainment *in marksmanship. The corresponding increase in the navy is from $2 to $lO. It was estimated by General Bell that if these schedules were adopted the average increase in pay of enlisted meij would be 33.3 per cent, making the average monthly pay $...
