How Government Money and Bonds are Officially Destroyed. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
How Government Money and Bonds are Officially Destroyed. The process by which all kinds of paper money, Government securities and stamps are destroyed is an interesting feature to those who have had an opportunity of witnessing the modus operandi, particularly so to the ladies, as many look on in astonishment, longing, or rather wishing, that the toothful morsels in the shape of £500 or 81000 notes about -to be consigned to the hugh maeerator might be in their hands to "place them where they would do the most good." Through the courtesy of a member of the Destruction Committee, to whom our party were indebted for the explanations, it was shown that they were comparatively valueless, from the fact that the signatures were cut off at either corner. The cylinders have a capacity to hold 2,500 pounds, but arc seldom filled with more than 2,000 pounds. They are filled with Government securities and other paper values, viz: Enited States fractional currency bonds, internal revenue certifi...
The Story of a Nose. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
The Story of a Nose. Monsieur Ar&amp;go, the French statesman and nephew of the astronomer, is, in spite of his sixty-five years, a very handsome man. He has a large nose, of which he is somewhat proud. A Bhort time ago he was traveling by train to Versailles, when a child who "was in the same carriage, and who had watched Arago for some time with dilated eyes, began to cry. In vain did the child's mother, Arago and another Senator, endeavor to calm the perturbed juvenile. The poor mother was in despair, and as the shrieks grew more and more piercing, Arago felt bound to interfere and see what he could do. He said to the child, "What ails you, my dear? Are you afraid of me? I don't look very naughty, do I?" Thus addressed, the child sobbed out, "'Take off your nose." Arago looked at the mother, who grew very confused and said, "Ah, Monsieur! excuse me: excuse my son." "Hut, Madame," said Arago, "what does ho mean?" The mother then explained that she had during the carnival t...
Courious Country Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
Courious Country Superstitions. In most parts of the Enited Kingdom, it is deemed unlucky to kill a robin, the red breast of the bird being attributed to its having been sprinkled with the blood of our Lord as He hung upon the cross; even as the cross on the back of the ass is connected in the rustic mind with our Lord's entry into Jerusalem riding upon an ass." According to a paper in the Book of Days, a common saying in Suffolk is, " You must not take robin's eggs; if you do you will get your legs broken." The writer of it also relates the following anecdote: "How badly you write!" I said one day to a boy in our parish school; "your hand shakes so that you can't hold the pen steady. Have you been running hard or anything of that sort? " "No," replied the lad. "It always shakes; I once had a robin die in my hand, and they say that if a robin dies in your hand it will always shake." In some parts of England it is eonsideied very unlucky to have no money in your pocket when you hear ...
The Camphor Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
The Camphor Tree. One of the most useful and magnificent productions of the vegetable kingdom that enriches China, and more particularly the provinces of Kiang-si and Canton is the camphor tree. This stupendous laurel which adorns the banks of the rivers, was in several places found by Lord Amherst's embassy above fifty feet high, with its stem twenty feet in circumference. The Chinese themselves affirm that it sometimes attains the bight of more than three hundred feet, and a circumference greater than the extended arm 3of twenty men could embrace. Camphor is obtained from the branches, by steeping them, while fresh cut, in water for two or three clays, and then boiling them till the gum, in tho form of a white jelly, adheres to a stick Which is kept constantly stirring the branches. The fluid is then poured into a glazed vessel, where it concretes in a few hours. To purify it the Chinese take a quantity of finely powdered earth, which they lav at the bottom of a copper basin; over...
Two Irreconcilable Conditions. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
Two Irreconcilable Conditions. Debility and health are irreconcilable conditions. Weakly people, that is to say people who lack the vitality requisite for a vigorous discharge of each and all of the bodily func- : tions, are invariably afflicted with some, though it may be a trifling, disorder of the sys'em. : Atony, or a want of nervous and muscular vigor, is accompanied by poverty of the blood and leanness. A certain way to overcome it and | prevent the aggravated* maladies to whioh it must ultimately lead is to use Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, which promote digestion and assimilation of the food, and thus are the means of furnishing the body with a supply of blood of a quality essential to its uroper nourishment. Invigoration through the instrumentality of the ; matchless tonic protects tbe feeble froni a host of bodily ills which lurk in ambush for the debilitated. The Bitters are an article which it is i most desirable to keep constantly on hand.

Unsolicited Testimony. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 18 April 1877
Unsolicited Testimony. Fairfield, Me., April 28, 1804. Gentlemen—Seeing numerous certificates in j the Maine Fanner, endorsing tlie merits of the Great Lung Remedy, Wistab's Balsam of Wi u&gt; CaTDtST, I am induced and I take gn at pleasure ! in giving publicity to the great cure it accomplished in my family in the year 1850. During the summer of that year my son, Henry A. Archer, now postmaster in this place, was attacked with spitting of blood, cough, weakness of lungs, and general debility, so much so thai our family physician declared him to have a "seated consumption." He was under medical treatment for a number of months, but received ■no benefit from it. At length, from the BOlicitation of himself and others, I %vas induced to j purchase one bottle of WiSTAR'a Balsam or ! Wild Cherry, which benefitted him so much I obtained another, which in a short time restored him to his usual state of health. I can safely : recommend this remedy to others in like condition, for it...

An Editor's View of Death. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879
An Editor's View of Death. The editor of the Gardiner (Me.) Journal has recently had a narrow escape from death, his horse running away as he hung in the wheel. He thus describes his sensations as follows: "Oh, can't some of my spirit friends do something to help me out of this scrape?" beseechingly I said or thought. It was a prayer not laid down in the books, and perhaps the form was not staid nor formal. Short as it was it did me good. I saw then crowds of spirits around^me —part of whom I knew. "I do not see what they can do," I thought, and as they seemed to hover round the front part of the wagon, and over the horse, I wondered how they kept up with him. Then I thought perhaps they'll take the old horse's strength away—but I couldn't see very clearly how they were to do this—for old Robin was a hard customer to 'dematerialize.' I probably should have lived but a few seconds longer. The reins had worn off upon the wheel just when my strength was all gone. Had I died, people wou...
How He Cured a Smoky Chimney. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879
How He Cured a Smoky Chimney. Yesterday, as a citizen of Woodward avenue was helping a tinsmith to elevate a smoke-jack to the roof of an addition on the windy side of the house, preparatory to hoisting it atop of a smoking chimney, an old man with a ragged bundle under his arm came along, halted, and soon became deeply interested. "That chimney smokes, don't it?" he finally inquired. "It's the worst one in town," replied the citizen. "And you wants to stop the nuisance, eh?" F ['Yes, I do." "And you think that smoke-jack will do it?" "I hope so." nQw, I kin stop that smoking I won't hurt the chimbly nor put up any smoke-jacks," continued the old man, as he laid down his bundle. "If you'll do it I'll give you five dollars," rejoined the citizen, who disliked the idea of disfiguring his chimney with the clumsy jack. "Kin I have the kitchen for five minutes?" asked the man. "Yes." The cook was instructed to vacate and the old man took possession. Removing the top of the stove he poure...
