Our Story Teller. BY CHARLES JEFFERSON THOM. WRANGLESVILLE. A NOVEL. fCoalinucd. 1 CHAPTER XXIX. Sally Rhett and her Lovers. The vain coquette each suit disdains, Aud glories in her lovci's pains. —Gay. My thoughts were now on Sally. I found a strong passion rising within me for her; but what use in my falling in love. She had other lovers, more than two, one of whom must be. a favored one. I had in the past thought but little of her. I had been told that her one desire was to capture for herself all the desirable young men whom she knew. Not to love but to be loved, and to claim her lovers as her slaves. I knew this, and more; 1 knew her favored one was a certain Theodore Fustian,a young man whom his friends called ''Doctor,'' because he was studying medicine with Dr. Ernest Cooper, of Bridgeton. This Theodore Fustian was an affected fop, whose thoughts were mainly given to winning favors from the ladies; he was a pronounced ladies' man, a male flirt, and bad about as much honor as...

Dividing • State. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 29 September 1881

Dividing • State. The proposed division of California into two States receives very slender support from either the press or politicians of that Commonwealth. Even if California should consent to the separation there is little probability that the ehauge could be affected. The whole question would have to come before Congress, and the condition of Nevada forcibly illustrates the danger of admitting into the Union as States political divisions which have not a material basis of prosperity to rest on. The framers of the Constitution foresaw that questions of this kind were likely to arise and wisely devised stringent provisions on the subject. The third section of the fourth article prescribes that "new States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the junction of two or more States, without the consent of the Legislature of the States concerned, as well as of C...

tp a Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 29 September 1881

tp a Tree. A Georgia paper tells an amusing story of how an untamed steer troubled several negroes who attempted to drive the animal home to his purchaser, and started on the road to Crawford. Fe>r the first half mile the animal gave but little trouble, but while going down a lane he suddenly realized the fact that he "wanted to go back home," acd niaele a bolt for the drivers. They helel their ground until they found that the ox was dangerous, when an ignominious stampede commenced. One of the drivers escaped by scaling a fence, while others scattered to the right and left, but an old negro named John Deadwyler was not so fortunate. He was pressed so close that he had to escape behind a tree, when commenced a tilt between man anel steer. The ox chased him around until his head began to swim, but during a temporary lull, while his steership wa9 fighting a fly, John started up that tree. But he was not quick enough. The animal sprang at the man, and caught his horn in his ...

Miscellaneous If cm* [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 29 September 1881

Miscellaneous If cm* One hundred Jews who escaped from Russia are on their way to America. The census of India, just completed, shows the population to be 252,000,000. What is it we all like to possess, and yet always wish to leave behind us. A good character. Muggins says he don't wonder his sweetheart is afraid of lightning—she's so awfully attractive. An Atlantic steamer that arrived at New York on the 31st of August, brought $2,300,000 in European gold. A homely young girl has the consolation of knowing that if she lives to be forty she'll be a pretty old girl. From 30,000 to 50,000 people attended the soldiers' reunion at Bloomington, Ill. General Grant's speech was received by the old soldiers with entiiusiasm. Hendrick B. Wright, the exmember of Congress, who came West as Chairman of the Labor Commission a few years ago, died at Wilkesbarre, Pa., a few days ago.

Shall the .VssassiC* Design be Accomplished? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 29 September 1881

Shall the .VssassiC* Design be Accomplished? Tlie assassin aimed his bullet at the life of our late Chief Magistrate because he wanted to place another in iiis position and to put at the head of public affairs men who did not then possess a controlling influence. The solitary life of Garfield seemed to stand in the way of the gratification of these ambitious, and that life has been extinguished by murder. A V ill President Arthur act so as to give effect to the design of the criminal? Shall tlie whole course of public events be changed because of the act of one criminal and depraved man? We confers that the outlook is not as assuring as it should be. Had the President determined that nothing should come from the wicked act, be would not have hesitated about his duty when the resignations of the Cabinet officer- were tendered. He has not yet d eided that the murder shall have been in vain. It is a sign of bad portent; there is a strengthening belief that the worst will ce>...

Boiler Explosion. Destruction of the Beet Sugar Mills at Alvarado. Tuesday morning at six o'clock an explosion took place at the Beet Sugar Works at Alvarado, by which the mills were almost entirely demolished. The accident was the result of the carelessness of the fireman, George Smith, who allowed the water in the boiler to settle too low, and and then turned a supply of cold water into the heated boiler. Instantly the boiler exploded, and the unfortunate Smith was thrown through the building several feet distant. When found by his fellow-workmen he was endeavoring to crawl away on his hands and knees to a place of safety. He was so fearfully scalded, that on being handled by the men, the flesh peeled off his head and face, and his arms and hands were in the same shocking condition. He died at four o'clock the same afternoon. By the force of the explosion the boiler-house was completely demolished and the main building took fire, but it was subsequently and by dint of hard work ex...
