The chickens were stolen from Mrs. Arkley and A. D. Pendley, who reside about a mile north of town, the discovery being made by A. D. Oliver, a nephew of Mrs. Arkley. He missed two fine chickens and in searching for them came upon footprints of tb ree ra i&gt; n, well defined in the soft earth and therfore easily followed, leading directly to Mr. Peudley’s place, where it was learned that five more chickens were missing. The footprints were not lost however, and Mr Oliver, accompanied by Mr. R. C. Rennie did the Sleuth act for some distance until they came across W. H. Schuyler, who was on his way to the...

Onr Rich Uncle. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
Onr Rich Uncle. The President calls attention to the significant fact that in 1893, when the panic began, we had but $161,000,000 in gold in the government . treasury, while we now have $904,000,000. Ten years ago the circulation per capita was $23.23, now it is $33.23. We had hard times then because the country was poor; now the country is rich. The United States’ total stock of gold is about $1,600,000,000. There is no other government on earth that can approch this figure. Opulent Germany and prosperous France fall far behind ; England is poverty stricken by comparison; Aus-tria-Hungary has in her banks a beggarly $230,000,000. Uncle Sam’s business is thriving. Every Saturday night he locks up a comfortable profit in the safe. The money is getting to be a nuisance. If he wished, he could pay off almost the whole interest-bearing debt with yellow chunks. We do not always get the best use of otir prosperous relative’s money. Our currency system was made when the wolf was howling ab...
A POPULAR HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
A POPULAR HOTEL. _ The Brooklyn Hotel on First street above Folsom, which was formerly on Bush street, has become one of the most popular hotels in the city. It is conducted by Chas. Montgomery, the best and most favorably known hotelkeeper on this coast. Notwithstanding that the Hotel has only been opened a few months, it has taken its place as the leading family and business hotel of the city. Mr. Montgomery deserves the success he is meeting with. He was a heavy sufferer by the earthquake and fire and had to struggle to get established again in business, but men of his ability and energy cannot be kept down. Thousands of his old patrons, before the fire, in the old “Brooklyn Hotel” on Bush street, and “The American Exchange Hotel” on Sansome street, will be glad to know that when visiting the city they can have the comforts and protection or a quiet home at the New Brooklyn on First street. The Hotel is .conducted on temperance principles, charging the same rates as before the ea...
Mexico’s Famous Parrots, In the State of Tamaulipas, in Mex- [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
Mexico’s Famous Parrots, In the State of Tamaulipas, in Mex- ico, parrots of the much prized “double yellow head” variety, famous as conversationists, are found in countless flocks. Indeed the woods are literally full of them and are vocal with their harsh cry from sunrise to sunset. They seem to have but one note. It is only in confinement that they are imitative. In this country they are worth $lO apiece. Parrots build their nests in holes and hollows of trees, and in parts of Mexico they are so numerous that every available cavity is occupied by them in the nesting season. Nevertheless the work of procuring their young is extremely arduous, even for the expert natives. Trees in the tropics are commonly festooned with many climbing vines of thicknesses varying from a thread to the size of a ship’s cable, and all this network of vegetation is usually infested by myriads of desperately fierce ants of large size, which both bite and sting. Many an unfortunate peon, it is said, has lo...

You don’t expect me to repeat those, do you, Percy?”

lie Knew the Amount. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
lie Knew the Amount. It w:is by no means a holiday task for Amos Boggs to carry pail after pail of water from the old well through the orchard and across the hen-yard to the kitchen, where Mrs. Boggs washed for the family and a dozen or so of customers. Therefore he was in no mood to enjoy the questions of an inquisitive summer resident. “How many' years have you been at this sort of thing?” asked the elderly person ol wealth; on whose white skirts Mrs. Boggs was then expending her energy and the heat of a heavy iron. “Ten years,” responded Mr. Boggs, striding on with his pails. “Dear, dear!” said the woman, in a commiserating tone. “Why, how much water do you suppose you’ve carried in that time?” “I’ve carried all that’s been in the well during that time, and isn’t there now, ma’am,” and Mr. Boggs entered the kitchen and set the pails down with as" near a thump as the nature of their contents would 'permit.
A Bitter Wish. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
A Bitter Wish. Those who knew what Amos Keem had borne from his sister Deborah all his life were astonished at his patience. “I never know him to complain but once,” said Mr. Keene’s best and oldest friend, “and then he said what was a pretty ha’sb thing—for him. “It was concerning that time she was showing him where he hadn’t shingled the roof right, according to her ideas, and lost her holt on the ladder and fell. ’Twa’n’t anbody’s fault hut her own, but she’s made capital out of it for years. “She tells new folks about it, sets off the way Amos had slighted the roof, and how near she came to breaking her neck, and so on —makes a long story. “I’ve been present about thutty times when she’s told it, and it hasn’t lost anything by the repetition, now I tell ye. “Well, sir, one day when she’d reeled it off to a party of folks that were driving by and stopped for a glass o’ water, Amos came right over to my shop afterward, and he was real put out. “ T .declare to man.’ he said to me, ...
