Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 August 1881

Our Story Teller. CHARLES JEFFERSON THOM. WRANGLESVILLE. A NOVEL. ! [Continued.] CHAPTER XI. The flood-tide of prosperity continues. "The school-master is geneially a man of some importance in the female circle of a rural neighborhood ; bein 6 considered a kind of idle, gentleman-like personage, of vastly superior tastes and accomplishments to the rough country swains."— Irving. Wherever I went I was well received, especially by the women; nothing was more evident than their efforts to entertain me, I made myself quite at home at Willstrong's. I found Mrs. Willstrong gaining a powerful ascendancy over me. I believe that she made an effort to gain that ascendancy, and having gained it, made as much of an effort to maintain it. Another woman who had gained an influence over me was Mrs. Quackenbosh, the music teacher. Her ascendancy was comparatively limited, yet 1 soon learned to like her society, and to take her advice. Both women were leaders of their sex, and possessed of a large c...

Cremation in Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 August 1881

Cremation in Germany. A correspondent writes from Gotha to the Pall Mall Gazette: Amid pleasant fields outside this attractive little city stands the famous cremation hall, with the exception of that at Milan, the only one in Europe. The building itself is handsome, is built on classic ground or kirchof. Before describing what I have just seen I will mention that this cremation hall is of two and a half years' date only, and was built by an association or verein of some of the most learned and thoughtful men in Germany. Fifty-two persons, five of whom were women, have in this space of time chosen such a form of burial, one body being sent from New York. The cost of the mere process of cremation is about £5, and the religious ceremony can first be read over the body. It is unnecessary to say that the Catholic priest refuses church burial to any one electing to be cremated. Protest, ant pastors, on the contrary, willingly accord it. The cinerary urns bear the name of one or two Jews. ...

T\ro crimes have been com-j mitted.

Ko charge is made i against the would-be murderer, The otlicers plead that comphtint must ho made before they take action. And therefore, no arrest is made, and the man who missed being a murderer only through his own defective markmanship, goes scot free. Again, a man engaged in a struggle with another for the possession of a weapon, secures it, Strikes a blow, and makes a success of his evident intent of mnrdor. The officers arc informed, the fleeing murderer is hunted down, covered with deadly weapons, secured, thrown into jail, and threatened with lynch law, without thought of complaint or warrant. Tlie effort made toward murder was no greater in the second than in the Brat Instance — perhap...

The Horse, From a Moral Stand-Point. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 August 1881

The Horse, From a Moral Stand-Point. i The driver who fights his horses ! ; has not got through his first le.-son j in the management of animals, j Some strike their horses in a tit of j anger; others beat them for what I I they eoiibider to be a sinful act on i the part of the horse, Mow the j fact is, the horse never does wrong on purpose. In this respect he it-' better than most men. If he refuses to pull, it is tlie fault of edu? j cation; and ii he runs away, a. I | kicks things to piece.-, it is because |he is frightened. Men, when they are scared, do some very foolish j things, and they are excused, but Ino allowance is made for the runa- ; way horse. He is kicked, cuffed : and beaten, as if what was done was on purpose to hurt somebody, and in not consequence of supposed j daiger, which the poor animal was 1 trying to fiVe from. Horses never kick without a motive. They use j their heels for defence; and the first kick at the traces is given to j ward off what to them seems d...

Another Frightful Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 August 1881

Another Frightful Accident. La=t Monday evening, the engine of the Livermore local train struck a buggy containing two men, at the Mt. Eden coss- rine, near Haywards, crushing the vehicle, killing one man outright, and mortally wounding the other. The names of «be victims were Eli C Huston, of Alvarado, and Alfred Lett, of Gottland, Sweden. The former was instantly killed; the latter lived only a few hours. Huston was returning from Dublin, and overtaking Lett on the road, asked him to ride. The railroad for miles on either side of the Mt. Eden crossing is lined ty a double row of gum trees, which completely hides from the view of the engineer any teams, and from travelers the coining train. The men were perfectly sober, but became so frightened on seeing their danger as to urge forward their horses, instead fof drawing hack. Engineer Bradley, than whom a more careful man, or better engineer, never pulled a throttle, used every endeavor to stop his train, but was upon tbe devoted me...
