Bright Prospects For Santa Barbara County [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
Bright Prospects For Santa Barbara County A. S. Cooper is of the opinion that Santa Barbara county will be one of the largest oil producing regions in the state. Mr. Cooper, who was formerly state mineralogist, is now an oil expert, says the Santa Barbara Independent. He says that while but little has been done toward developing the oil resources of this county, the English syndicate which bought the Mahoney ranch near Santa Yuez about a year ago is putting down two wells and is delighted with the prospects as the drill descends. One well is 500 feet and the other 150 feet. Wells are being bored in the vicinity of St. Lucas, and a company of Japanese capitalists are putting down wells on the San Lucas rancho, with a good showing of striking the main vein. Incidentally, Mr. Cooper, whose home is in Los Olivos, says that the coldest weather of the season struck there last week, when the thermometer fell a degree below freezing point.

The Quality of Mercy. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
The Quality of Mercy. A notorious mountain moonshiner, familiarly known as “Wild Bill,” was recently tried before a Federal court in Georgia, and was adjudged guilty. Before pronouncing sentence the judge lectured the prisoner on liis long criminal record, and at last, informing him that the court entertained no feeling of anger toward him. hut felt only unmixed pity, sentenced him to spend six years in the Federal prison at Atlanta. Bill stolidly shifted the quid of tobacco in his.mouth, and turned to leave the court room with the marshal. On outside, the only thing lie said wa. this: “Well, I suah am glad he wa’n't mad at me!”
An Appropriate Hymn. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
An Appropriate Hymn. The worshipers in a certain chape had some trouble to keep their faces straight a short time ago. During the service some commotioi was caused by a gentleman who acci dentally ignited a box of wax matcheiin his pocket and was trying to pu them out, while his alarmed neighbors struggled equally hard to help him. The minister, being shortsighted could not make out the reason of tin disturbance, and, thinking to diplo matically cover the incident, he inno cently said: ‘•Brethren, there is a little noise go ing on. Until it is over let us sing ‘Sometimes a Light Surprises.’ ” —Lon don Chronicle.
PEOPLE WHO DISAPPEAR. Lore Affairs and Family Differences Often the Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
PEOPLE WHO DISAPPEAR. Lore Affairs and Family Differences Often the Reason. “Women do not disappear as much as men,” said Mr. Hartley, an international detective, who was interviewed in reference to a mysterious disappearance which is now attracting much public attention, says the London Graphic. When a woman goes it is usually a love affair. Either the parents object to the man, or there is some other cause. And it is important to remember what cunning schemers women can be. Even quite young girls may be wonderfully clever in keeping things from their parents. During the course of my work I am very skeptical of women for this reason. A girl might arrange for her lover or some one sent by him to meet her, and it would be a very simple matter for her to give her friends the slip in a crowded street. Of course very often we get coses of sudden loss of memory happening to people who are in the best of health and spirits, but one rarely finds this occur to a young girl, and where the te...

UNFAMILIAR FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
UNFAMILIAR FACTS. Some of the London theaters sank motor busses Into the suburbs to gather up patrons. An average of 800 persons are killed la the United States each year by lightning. This means one In every 100,000. The machine which outs up wood to make matches turns out 40,000 “splints,” as they are called. In a single minute. Of all the boy workers in London, newsboys are the healthiest —and barbers’ boys the most unhealthy—a triliute to the open-air life. Many French vineyards are likely to be turned into rose gardens. The perfume factories pay $OOO per kilogramme for pure essence of roses, and the demand Is greater than the supply. It is proposed by (he master of tbs Grand Central Station in New York that It would be advisable for the railway companies lu their new plans to procure a kissing room and require all osculation to be performed there, so that the concourse, doorways, platform* and gates be not congested by those who linger for the last good-by.

Dry Rot In Men. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 22 February 1908
Dry Rot In Men. Th« first strong external revelation of the dry rot in men Is a tendency to lurk and lounge, says a well-known writer, to be at street corners without Intelligible reason; to be going anywhere when met; to be about many places rather than at any; to do nothing tangible, but to have an Intention of performing a variety of intangible duties to-morrow or the day after. When the manifestation of the disease is observed, the observer will usually connect it with a vague Impression once formed or received that the pa tient was living a little too hard. He will scarcely have had leisure to turn It over In his mind and form the terrible suspicion “dry rot” when he will notice a change for the worse In the patient’s appearance—« certain slovenliness and deterioration which is not poverty nor dirt nor intoxication nor ill-health, but simply “dry rot.”

The Most SaKpleioo™ Ever. Henry Clews, the noted banker and author, was talking at the Union Club in New York about a certain financier. "No wonder the man is so success ful,” said Mr. Clews. “He Is the most careful, the most suspicious fellow 1 ever heard of. In fact, he reminds me of a Staffordshire farmer my father used to tell of.
