Anaesthetics. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 16 December 1880

Anaesthetics. Anaesthetics naturally embrace all of those substances that render living mutter impervious or insusceptible to pain by inhalation, in treating upon this subject, I shall attempt to give .tt brief .sketch of the principal materials now in use as Kinesthetics by the dentist, the surgeon, and the accoucheur, commencing with nitrous oxide gas, protoxide of nitrogen, laughing gas. These names have been given to a gaseous substance discovered by Mr. Priestly in 1770. Nitrous Oxide is said to be a general stimulant, with a special direction to the brain and nervous system generally. When inhaled ft very speedily excites the cerebral functions, exhibitingjts effects in exhileration of tho spirits with a tendency to muscular action. The anaesthetic properties of nitrous oxide, were discovered by Sir Humphrey Davy, who suggested that it might be used to prevent pain in surgical operations; but tho first practical ap- . plication of it to this purpose i> due io tlie l...

Ague Cure Is a purely vegetable hitter and powerful tonic, and is Warranted a speedy ami certain cure for Fever and Ague, Chills and Fever, Intermittent or Chill Fever, Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical or Bilious Fever, and all j malarial disorders. In miasmatic districts, the rapid pulse, coated tongue, thirst, lassitude, loss of appetite, pain in the back and loins, aud coldness of the spine and extremities, are only premonitions of j severer symptoms, which terminate in tho ague paroxysm, succeeded by high fever I and profuse perspiration. It is a startling fact, that quinine, arso- ! Nic and other poisonous minerals, form tho j basis of most of the " Fever and Ague Preparations," "Specifics," "Syrups," and "Tonics," in the market. The preparations made from these mineral poisons, although they are palatable, and may break the chill, do not cure, hut leave the malarial and their own drug poison in the system, producing quinism, dizziness, ringing in the ears, headache, vert...

THE VILLAGE OF THE PLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

THE VILLAGE OF THE PLAIN. REV. JOS. HEMPHILL. I sing of no Arcadia, Not land ot ve/ual bloom, Nor land that gives immortal youth— That knows not shroud nor tomb. Tis to a little village here I lend my humble strain-, Since muses seldom strike a note For our village of the plain No monuments of warriors Rise from our public squares, As Mars is not the deity, That asks our praise or prayers. We laud the south wind, blowing free— Rain dropping from the eaves, And in our adoration, how To Ceres and her sheaves. No river flowing near beside Bears shins from every clime; But our mem'ries and our annals Float down the stream of time, In crafts of frail humanity, Laden with care and t.iil— Tlie shipments of our husbandmen, Who till our fertile soil. No monarch rises from our midst; We boast no classic lore, Nor yet our famed antiquities; Nor yet our men of yore. We pride in no Westminster halls, In Vales or Oxforc s none— Our sons are rulers, every one— Our motto "evekon!" The village schoo...

Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

Our Story Teller. Running Into The Net. "You can do as you please with your wealth for that matter, but I will not be a party to any such transactions." "And I say you shall sir,"' roared my quickly-tempered and irascible uncle, hotly. "Things have come to a pretty pass, indeed, when a young jackanapes like you should presume to set your wishes in defiance to mine. Here I have made all arrangements to have you married to a fortune, and—" "A homely old maid, with corkscrew ringlets.'' "Don't dare to interrupt me sir,'' said my uncle, sternly. ''1 haven't seen the young lady for years, but I'll venture to say she's as goodlooking as the best of them, and after all beauty is but skin deep. What is more to the purpose, she has a clean fortune of nearly a hundred thousand pounds in her own right." "And as I have nothing save what your generosity sees fit to give me, 1 must sell myself to this old maid, provided she is satisfied with my appearance," I remarked scornfully. But mv uncle was...

Origin of Amber. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

Origin of Amber. Nearly 2000 years ago, Pliny, the naturalist, wrote that ambor was the fossil resin of an extinct cone-bearing tree, and modern science can say of it but little more. The original amber-producing forest probably reached from Holland over the German coast through Siberia and Kamtschatka, even in North America. One of the most celebrated deposits is on the peninsula of Samland, a portion of Prussia, nearly surrounded by the Baltic sea. The northern part of this region, constituting the promontory of Brusterort, is hilly, aud the coast banks are often 150 and 300 feet high. At one time all the amber found here, even by the peasants in plowing, belonged to the German government, the finder, however, receiving one-tenth of its value. For a piece in the Berlin museum weighing 18 pounds the finder is said to have received $1,---000. During the stormy weather when the wind and the waves beat violently against the coast, a great quantity of amber is washed up. The total year...

A Rough Translation [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

A Rough Translation A young lady, moving in the most exalted society circles in Galveston, after much toil and practice at the piano, learned to play with considerable dexterity a piece called "Picnic Polka." It is some thing after the style of the ''Battle of the Prague," in which the listener can readily distinguish the roar of artillery, the rattle of musketry, the shouts of tlie soldiers and the groans of the dying. In the "'Picnic Polka" the noise of the wind among the trees and the joyous carrols of the*birds are re-produc-ed, the finale being a thunder shower, which disturbs the sylvan revellers. It happens that a country cousin is in town just now, and the young lady thought she would play the piece to him and hear his comment. He is a plain, simpleminded youth, and although not very bright, is very appreciative. She told him what the piece was and then proceeded to give him the "Picnic Polka." The first notes are rather slow and hesitating, the idea sought to be conveyed be...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 23 December 1880

The Board of Supervisors, at its last meeting, passed a resolution to the effect that the Finance Committee shall hereafter pay no bills from the Infirmary Fund without referring the same to the member from the di»tri< t from which said bill is presented. The Yolo Democrat, one of the best of our interior journals, has emerged from its patent inside chrysalis, and is now entirely printed at home. Here's our best wishes, Bro. Saunders, for the saccess of your new venture. The sentence of Soto, the Spaniard who attempted to murder Fermin Barrios in his sleep near this place some four months since, will be generally commended in this community. The assault was most brutal and unprovoked, and by this prompt conviction and sentence of the assailant, a summary example is set, the ends of justice furthered, and our community and the State at large is ridded for ten years of a hardened criminal and desperado. The continued rains give our farmers on the heavier lands no chance to ...
