Let Your Neighbor Alone. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 May 1881

Let Your Neighbor Alone. No people are such thorough i nuisances as those who are perpetBally meddling with the business ' of their neighbors, who are always on the alert for anything suspicious —always ready to believe the worst of everybody. Reader, if you belong to that unfortunate class, we pity you. A prying mind needs food, and without it suffers. Then try to conquer the unhappy peculiarity. What is it to you if your neighbor does bring home a brown paper package and a covered basket ? You ,vill live just as long if you never kno.v what they contain. It is none of your business. And if your flighty neighbor, Mrs. Lightfoot, indulges herself in a new bonnet, while tier devoted hus band wears patched boots, you need not fret about it—he is the only sufferer, not you. >io need of making a hue ami cry over her supposed extravagance. The money did not come out <>f your pocket, and consequently it is none of your business. What it' the minister does ...

I had often heard and read of the hair suddenly turning white, through acute suffering, or overpowering fear ; but it was not until a year ago last summer, that I met a living and well-authenticated illustration of such an effect having been produced. It was at the frontier settlement of Cheyenne, and the illustration was afforded me in the person of one Angus Craig, a half breed, who was then hunting the buffalo and antelope in the vicinity of Cheyenne, accompanied by his beautiful Piegan wife, Altahooma (Dove in the Nest), his brother, Douglas Craig, who was also accompanied by his Indian wife and children, and a dozen or more white, Indian and half-breed frontiersmen, mostly from the British border. Angus Craig was then a tall, powerful, and symmetrical man of twenty-six or eight, of grave and even stern demeanor, and with nothing but his coppery complexion to hint of his aboriginal moity of race.
