DOUGHERTY ISLAND. It la the Moat Remote mid Deaolnto Spot on Earth. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
DOUGHERTY ISLAND. It la the Moat Remote mid Deaolnto Spot on Earth. Which Is the loneliest, most desolate and most inaccessible island on the face of the globe? Many people would doubtless plump for one of the Crozets, In the south Atlantic ocean. And yet Hog island, the westernmost of the group, is by no means an undesirable place of residence, abounding as It does in hares and rabbits, penguins, albatrosses and sea elephants. Herd Island, In the same seas, is far more Isolated as well as more barren, but It possesses, as does Hog, a shelter hut for castaways, and it is visited by whalers occasionally. So, too, is South Georgia, but it has no shelter hut, and as It is right out of the track of shipping any one unlucky enough to be cast away thereon would stand a very poor chance of ever getting off alive. Bouvet island, in the same seas, is visited even more rarely, and on the last occasion when a ship touched there Hve corpses were found frozen on the beach, grim mementos of some ...
A Bell Ridden Town. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
A Bell Ridden Town. A well-known tourist of the world has stated as his opinion that Lucerne is the most bell-riddeu town in Europe. He bad assuredly never been to Schwyz. To begin with, the countless cattle that pass through the streets iu the small hours of the morning on their way to or from the upland pastures wear bells as big as buckets. And there are church bells, too. A tine peal they are, no doubt, but the noble art of bellringing either never existed or has been lost here. The bells are rung by being smitten or hanged together by two small boys, whose legs are plainly visible—an alluring mark for an airgun—through the open louvres of the church tower, the sounds produced being about ns edifying as the music of a donkey engine in full play. The i&gt;orforiiiance begins at 4:30 a. m. and continues until early service at 5. and if there is a funeral —which is every other day or so—there will be another sustained burst of melody from 6 to 7. During the remainder of the...
The Sfcnitc of the Sky. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
The Sfcnitc of the Sky. What is the apparent form of the vault of tiie sky? There is probably to one to whose eyes it seems a true hemisphere, with the zenith appearing as distant as the horizon. At sea or in a flat country the seeming greater distance of the horizon is best shown. Professor .1. M. Peru ter in discussing this subject reaches the conclusion that the form of the vault in vertical section is that of the segment of a circle the arc of which subtends at the center an angle of the order of forty degrees. If the reader will draw such a segment he may be surprised by the amount of flattening which is thus ascribed to the sky. From this optical illusion many curious effects arise, such as the seeming increased magnitude of the sun and moon when near the horizon and the apparently oval forms of halbs ar.&lt;J coronas seen at low altitudes.

i)id Better. “Y'ou quit smoking because she asked you to?” “Yep.” “And you quit drinking because she asked you to?” “Yep.” “And you quit swearing because she asked you to?” “Yep.” “And you begau going in better society because she asked you to?” “Yep.” “It is a wonder to me you did not marry her?” “I had intended to. but when I had gotten rid of all my bad habits I found I could do better.” —Houston Daily Post. It was growing very late, but the young man in the parlor scene showe:! no signs of making a home run. “You evidently have a very vivid imagination, Mr. Boreni,” said the dear girl as she made an unsuccessful attempt to strangle a yawn. “Why do you think so?” queried the unsuspecting Borem. “I thought perhaps you imagined yourself iu the arctic regions, where the nights are six months long,” she explained. And thirty seconds later he had faded into the glumpsome gloom.—Chicago News.

Two Varieties* [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908

Literary Calamity. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
Literary Calamity. Borns (struggling author) —You book reviewers were unnecessarily severe on that last novel of mine. Xaggns—Why, you ungrateful hound, with one accord we pronounced it one of the cleanest and most uplifting works of fiction that had appeared this season. Borns —That’s what I mean. I haven’t sold a single copy.

HEALS 0.3.1J.0LD SORES No old sore exists merely because the flesh is diseased at that particular spot; if this were true simple cleanliness and local applications would heal them. Whenever a sore or ulcer refuses to heal readily, the blood is at fault; this vital fluid is filled with impurities and poisons which are being constantly discharged into the place, feeding it with noxious matter and irritating and inflaming the nerves and tissues so the sore cannot heal. These impurities in the blood may be the remains of some constitutional trouble, the effect of a debilitating spell of sickness, leaving disease germs in the system, or the absorption by the blood of the fermented refuse matter which the bodily channels of waste have failed to remove. Again the cause may be hereditary, the diseased blood of ancestry being handed down to posterity ; but whatever the cause, the fact that the sore will not heal shows the necessity for the very best constitutional treatment. There is nothing...
RUNAWAY BANK OFFICER RETURNS HOME Confesses to Helping Wreck California Safe Deposit and Trust Company. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908
RUNAWAY BANK OFFICER RETURNS HOME Confesses to Helping Wreck California Safe Deposit and Trust Company. San Francisco. —J. Dalzell Robertson, the indicted assistant secretary of the looted California Safe Deposit and Trust Company, gave himself up to Sheriff Dolan Monday and was admitted to reduced bail by Judge Dooliug. Wearied of the troubled life of a fugitive and despairing of bettering his miserable condition, the young bank official weeks ago made up his mind to “.'/ace the music.” He listened to the pleadings of his wife, took a train fpom New York to San Francisco, arrived here Saturday evening, promptly consulted with his wife’s law/er, William P. Humphrey, and surrendered himself to Assistant District Attorney William Hoff Cook, Sunday. Robertson, it is said by the District Attorney’s Office, has neither asked nor received immunity. It seems doubtful if he will be granted absolute freedom from punishment. On the other hand, the plan is to proceed with his trial in due cour...
