GLOBE SIGHTS, [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
GLOBE SIGHTS, Some fellows have a great deal of ibllity in ungrammatical packages. Women have a nice way of being mean that men cannot hope to equal.

A Difficult Lingo. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
A Difficult Lingo. “When George Ade wintered in Egypt.” said a Baltimorean, “it amused him a good deal to see the serious way- in which his fellow-tourists took their smattering of Egyptian archaeology, of the Arabic tongue, and of the ancient Egyptian dynasties. They had picked up all this flimsy knowledge In a week or two’s reading, but they acted as though it was the precious fruit of a lifetime’s study. “At Assouan, one fine day, a young woman from St. Joseph complained that she could not understand the Arabic of her guide. To the crowd that encircled her she pointed out the guide .—a bent old fellow with a white beard —and she said bitterly that, after her thorough . study of Arabic,. it seemed strange that she and this guide could not converse. “From the rear of the crowd Mr. Ade called gravely; “‘lt’s your own fault. Miss Ilodson. You should have hired a younger guide. These toothless old ones all speak gum \rablc.’ ”

Allowing half a second for its utterance, that meant a daily waste of 125 hours. Why shouldn’t all those hours be saved, saved for some hotter use? “You know,” Mr. Ulrich went on, “I believe In few words. Wasted, superfluous words mean spoiled effects. What, for instance, could have been more telling, more effective, than the note, containing not a single superfluous or wasted word, that a man once wrote to his physician? “This note ran; ' “ ‘Dear doctor —I had a few words with my wife last evening.

BORAX IN THE DAIRY A Matter of Profitable Interest to the Farmer and Dairyman [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908
BORAX IN THE DAIRY A Matter of Profitable Interest to the Farmer and Dairyman The problem of keeping sweet all the utensils used in connection with milk and cream selling, and butter making, has been a serious one with the farmer. He has come to realize fully that the slightest taint or hint of staleness left in a can, tin or churn may ruin a whole output; that the taint which is left is in the form of bacteria which grow and multiply in milk or butter, producing disastrous results. The farmer has learned that hot water won’t rinse away the greasy residue in dairy utensils. He has learned that soap leaves a residue of its own which is, if anything. worse than the milk or cream residue, and it, is little wonder that there has been a constant clamor for a dairy cleanser and sweetener that will meet modern requirements. A few of the largest creamery establishments have called experts into consultation on this problem and have with this scientific aid hit upon a product of nature which ...
