Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 September 1881

Our Story Teller. BT CHARLES JEFFERSON THOM. WRANGLESVILLE. A NOVEL. [Continued.] CHAPTER XXV. Before the Judge. Constable McKetchum drove like a mad Jehu; we were whirled out of Wranglesville, whirled through Wharfle's Clearing, whirled over a villainous corduroy road and into Dealtown at a furious rate. We stopped; McKetchum got out and said in a snappish, surly, manner, "Get out and follow me." I did as bid; and in an instant more found myself in what was presumed to be a court room. We were in the presence of Judge Pratt; he ascended a platform, and stood by the side of a pulpit-like concern. He glowered at me in a manner that seemed to say, "Sir, you have broken the law, and it is my duty to punish you; I shall mete out to you the full penalty of the law when the time comes.'' Though I felt mixed and muddled I had quite enough intellect at hand to a measure of the Squire, notwithstanding his fearsome glowing. Jrle was big; perhaps six foot two in height, measured probably forty...

Trance voy mice. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 September 1881

Trance voy mice. Some interesting scientific experiments demonstrating the truth of the disputed phenomena of clairvoyance have recently been made by Dr. G. M. Bard, of this city. The "sensitive" was a lady, the wife of a lecturer on mesmerism. A first experiment failed, but on a second trial the lady, whose eyes were covered with cotton and closely bandaged, was able to name accurately cards diawn at random from a pack and held by the Doctor upon her forehead. She also read the title page of a volume which the Doctor took from his pocket. Other experiments with coarse print were equally successful, but she was unable to read fine print. Dr. Beard calls the faculty transvovanee, and thinks that it may be developed to such a degree that the person gifted with it can read entire pages of ordinary prinl held against the forehead. The lady, describing her sensations when in the transvoyant state, says that an electric light seemed to be thrown forward from the back of the brain upon her...

Cotton Spinning South. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 September 1881

Cotton Spinning South. According to the Atlanta Constitution, the proprietor of the Augusta cotton mills in that city declares that he can make and sell cloth at half a cent a yard less than the Kew England mills, and yet make more money than they do; and the proprietor of another large factory there 6tates that tlie Southern manufacturer has one and ninetenths cent per pound advantage over his rivals in the North. These are encouraging statements to every well-wisher of the South, which, it is to be hoped, will be publicly demonstrated at the cotton exposition this fall. Giving in detail the grounds of his belief, the proprietor of the Augusta mills said: "We have increased our spindles up to about 120,000, with the mills now building. The King Mill when it is organized with its million dollars capital, as it doubtless soon will he, will add 30,000 spindles to this number. We have water power enough to turn 1,000,000 spindles, and there is no reason why we should not have them. The...

Never, whqn traveling abroad, be over boastful in praise of your own country. It is an extraordinary fact that those who get in high words generally use very low language. It is not the number of facts he knows, but how much of a fact he is himself, that proves the man. Hurrying to catch a train is the hight of folly. Just stand on tho track and the train will catch you. The colleges are busy lettering great men so that they can be identi...
