Suicide of Mrs. John Mohr. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 4 August 1881
Suicide of Mrs. John Mohr. Mrs Cora Mohr, wife of John Mohr, a farmer residing in tbe "big field." four miles east of Livermore, and well known in this community, committed suicide on Thursday morning of last week. It seems that Mrs. Mohr did her work as usual on the morning in question, then took a dose of strychnine, and set down to await death. Her husband asked if she was sick, and proposed going for a doctor. She refused medical aid, and then told what she had done Mr. Mohr instautly administered antidotes for poison, and then proceeded to Livermore for a physician at the top of his horses' speed, sending a neighbor, meanwhile, to his house. All efforts to prevent the poison from taking effect proved unavailing, however, the woman dying within two hours after taking the fatal draught A coroner's jury was held, the verdict being "death by strychnin \ willfully administered by her own hand." The cause of the rash act is unknown.

Paper Blankets. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 4 August 1881
Paper Blankets. By a recent invention the domain in which paper plays its part in the general economy of things has been materially widened. To a Manchester firm, of the name of Henry &lt;fc Leigh Slater, says the British Trade Journal, belongs the credit of utilizing paper in this especial serviceable direction. At once cheap, cleanly, warm, light and easily manipulated, paper seems expressly designed for the purpose to which it i» now for the first time successf idly applied. ()f late years various attempts have been made to turn it to account in this manner, Hut, owing to the crackling nature of the paper and the impossibility of securing free ventilation beneath paper coverings, the idea has been abandoned again and again. In the production of the "Chartaline" blanket, as the new invention is called, these defects have been overcome in a most satisfactory manner. Ventilation is as full, free and perfect as takes place beneath an ordinary woolen blanket. The new bed cover...
A Noted Lady Spy. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 4 August 1881
A Noted Lady Spy. During her residence in Washington "Belle Boyd" formed an intimate acquaintance with President Lincoln, and a friendly correspondence was kept up between the two during a greater portion of the war. On one occasion her letter paper was adorned with the Confederate motto, a snake entwined around a Confederate flag, and the inscription, ''Don't tread on as or we will bite." When Lincoln replied to the missive he sent back the motto with "bite" erased and word "bust"' substituted. Broken down in health and bereaved by the loss of her father, who had died in the eadeavor to affect her release from captivity, "Belle Boyd*' determined to leave for foreign shores, and in May, IS'J4, she embarked on the Greyhound at North Caroline, as the bearer of important dispatches from Jefferson Davis and Judah P. Benjamin, to the friends of the cause in London. In endeavoring to run the blockade, however, the Greyhound was captured by a Oniteq States steamer. "Belle Boyd" was taken t...
Mr. Beecher on Hell. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 4 August 1881
Mr. Beecher on Hell. Mr. Beccher called the attention of those who cling to the idea of an everlasting hell to the fact that it is not taught at all in the Old j Testament, assarting that in the adj ministration of a nation which wa? ) avowedly directly iii Divine care, there was a period of four or five thousand years during which the i doctrine was never taught once. It ; was evident that among the Jews | there was a certain idea of a herei after of pain, hut the teachings of j a gross, sensual, material torment j "belonged to the [toman mind." It was the creation of the medreval ! age, and there had come down to us tlie lingering remnants of it. : When the Roman Catholic Church j organized itself gradually, it sej leeted as its most powerful instrument; the keys. "No scepter in j the King's hand, no sword in a gen- | eral's hand, no instrument of torture in the inquisitorial hand, ever i had power in it that was in the i keys. "They typified the church's | claim to lock and unloc...
