Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Our Story Teller. BT CHARLES JEFFERSON THOM. WRANGLESVILLE. A NOVEL, [Continued.] CHAPTER XXIII. Reputation. "Reputation is an idle and most false imposition, oft got without merit, and lost without deserving:."— Shakespeare. Although I did not consider that I was unduly cross or unkind, rumor had it that 1 was. An incident which occurred during the week is worthy of relating. Lucius Clark, a youngster of nine, was one of the new scholars; he was as wild a3 a deer, and had given his maiden aunt much trouble. The poor little fellow's mother was dead, and on her death Lucius' hysterical aunt had reluctantly consented to assume charge of her brother's house and children. Lucius soon found that he could boss her, and lost no opportunity to make the most of his discovery. Miss Clark had heard these rumors of Jones's brutality, and accordingly considered the chance of having her untamed colt broken in as a godsend; and as the breaking in of unruly urchins was what teachers were for, she t...

Zach Chandler as a Boxer. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Zach Chandler as a Boxer. Zach Chandler was not only a a strong man and an expert boxer, but he had the sand to back his muscle, and it didn't take all day to rile him. Just at the close of the war, and the day before the grand review in Washington, the Senator came out to Bladensburg to visit the Michigan cavalry. The boys were in high spirits, and many of the Sixth were disinterested spectators of a boxing match, or rather a series of set-to's with the gloves. Zach took his place in the circle, unknown to all, and attracted no attention until one of the boxers was driven back upon him. Leaning forward the Senator whispered, "Young man, I saw a dozen good chances for your left in there." "Say, old coon, may be you're on the box?*' called the other as he overheard the remark. Zacn peeled off his alpaca coat, put down his hat, and took the gloves from the one who had been worsted. The other man was the best boxer in the regiment, and there was intense excitement as the two squared of...

Dntch and diernians. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Dntch and diernians. The term "Dutch" is considered opprobrious by the Germans of the present day. It is more applicable to Hollanders than to citizens of the German empire, but, less than 250 years ago, when Van Tromp ruled the ocean, to be called a Dutchman was esteemed an honor. This was not more because the Dutch were great in war than because the people of Holland were great in peace. In those days the bankers of Amsterdam controlled the finances of the world. When speculation drove financiers to ruin, the supremacy of the sea was lost, and Holland speedily sank to its present insignificance in the affairs of the world. The greatness of Holland and the weakness of the Germans caused the latter to delight in calling themselves Dutchmen, which practice continued until the time of Kaiser Wilhelm 111. and the powerful confederation under Bismarck. The name "German" then became relieved from the odium alvays attached to it from the barbarism of the ancient days, and as the honor of ...

Fight D«>* Bailed [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Fight D«>* Bailed The preservative effects of packings of ice and snow is a fact familiar to every one. Strange to say, experience has shown that human life may be preserved by this means. The snow-packing acts as a protection, when total exposure under the same circumstances would prove fatal. The remarkable case of Elizabeth Woodcock, who was buried uuder the snow, is especially striking. In the winter of 1799, she was returning on horseback from Cambridge, England, to her home in a neigh boring village, and having dismounted for a few minutes the horse ran away from her. She sat down under a thicket, cold, tir«d and disheartened. Snow came on. She was too weak to rise, and the consequence was that by the morning the snow had heaped around her to a height of two feet above her head as she sat. She had strength enough to thrust a twig, with her handkerchief at the top of it, through the snow, to serve as a signal, and to admit "a little day-light. Torpor supervened; and ...

Glycerine. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Glycerine. The name is derived from a Greek word signifying "sweet," and has reference to the taste. As oil consists of acids and glycerine, the latter is obtained by separating the oil—the same is true of fat— into its component parts. The uses of glycerine are becoming more and more extended and valuable. There is no application that is better than a few drops rubbed daily over the hands, to keep them moist and smooth. Tlie hands should be first moistened with water, as the glycerine otherwise absorbs the moisture from the skin. Glycerine and carbolic acid— three ounces of the former to fifteen grains of tlie latter—are among the most effective applications for chapped hands, and equally for a scurfy skin. It may bo used two or three times a day. Glycerine is also said to be ex cecdingly effective in some cases of piles. A gentleman who had suffered from them for years, and whose case appeared to defy medical treatment, was cured by taking it daily with his food. A dose would be f...

Topnoddy Taken Dorm [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Topnoddy Taken Dorm Mr. and Mrs. Topnoddy were getting ready to go out and call on a friend, the other evening, and Mrs. T. desiring to look wety, was arraying herself iv a great variety of colors. Topnoddy noticed it, and began to comment. Said he: "Mrs. Topnoddy, I think a woman of your age ought to wear v ore subdued colors. "Oh, dv you?" was the response. "What would you suggest as becoming to your angel wife?'' • I think a black dress is simple, tasteful, and always becoming." "Indeed?" "Yes, indeed." "Well, then, Topnoddy, sup Dose you die and leave a widow, so that 1 can wear the color you think most becoming to me. Of course you can't 6ee me in it, but it would be of sunh pleasure and comfort to me to know that I was pleasing my poorj dear, dead husband." Then Mrs. Topnoddy smiled in such a very satisfied way ! that Topnoddy concluded his sug- : gestions were possibly too previoup, [ and busied himself tying his neckI tie, while Mrs. T. distributed the | rainbow tints as she...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

During the early days of the settlement of Livermore Valley, and the country tributary to the Town of Livermore, there was an era of inflation. The land produced bountifully; everybody expected to become rich in a year; every man could get uulimited trust, and was not slow in using his credit; and everybody tried to outdo his neighbor in scratching over land and putting in grain. Then dry tea* eons came, and with them a reckonrag day. Nearly all our farmers had been working beyond their mean?, and the upshot of the matter was that at the close of the dry Mason of 1376-7. nearly every ranch in this sec: .1 was ornamented by a cast-iron mortgage. These mortgages were largely he! 1 by non-residents, scarcely one-half of the actual value uf the property being then owned here. The tide turned. Farmers who had long risked not only their dollars, but the very extremity of their credit, on the* "scratching in" system of fanning, began to hedge. The system of summer-fallowing was adopted, an...

County Printing [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

County Printing A Murray Township Farmer GiTes the Views of Hi* Neighbors on the Subject. Livermore, Sept. 8, 1881. Editor Oakland Independent: I notice in the official organ of the Board of Supervisors that some of the 'dieavy tax-payers" of Oakland have giveu their views with regard to the advertising rates of city and connty printing, which they say "are not excessive." They may not he to the said heavy taxpayers, but they are to the 'farmers' of this township. I venture to assert that the farmers are as much interested in economy as the heavy taxpayers, and I don't see their names attached to the begging statements. Heavy taxpayers may be able to stand extravagant bills, and may have reason to boost up party papers, and may be under peculiar obligations to their proprietors, but I want to call the attention of the ••heavy taxpayers*' of Oakland to the following facts, which I take from our town paper, the Herald, and ask them to read it and then give me their views of "excessive...

Circular to Wheat Growers. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 September 1881

Circular to Wheat Growers. The committee of tlie WheatGrowers Association, appointed on Monday, have prep .red a circular in conformity with h resolution passed at that meeting, that it was for the best interest of farmers having wheat, to withold it from mvket until such time as freights should decline toa reasonable price. The circular sets out the sense of the meeting, that from the present outlook, the partial failure of the crops of France, floods in England, drouth in the Northwest, and with not more than one-third of last year's crop in our own State, coupled with the unprecedented amount amount of tonage in port and to i arrive, farmers had nothing to lose and all to gain by holding to their wheat, as recommended. From the statistics of the tonnage known to he here and to arrive, all would readily see that there need be no i uneasiness in regard to sufficient j tonnage to move the surplus wheat, j The circular says there is sufficient tonnage in port to carry 120,000 if —.4....
