The Jubilee Singers Entertain Our People [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
The Jubilee Singers Entertain Our People The Williams Jubilee Singers held forth at the opera house last Saturday evening to a fair-sized audience but not so large as this troupe deserved, singing, both in chorus and in solo work, was very fine indeed and parts of the program were about the best ever heard here in that class. The Williams singers mix just enough refined comedy with their work to give zest to the whole. They may also come again. The raffle for a hundred - dollar riding bridle and bit will take place at Lind &amp; Dille’s this (Saturday) evening. Mr. Edge, one of the operators from the government wireless station at Point Aguella, was a Journal caller Thursday. Mrs. G. C. Gale left for San Francisco Saturday evening to join her husband. Mr. and Mrs. Gale intend to build a home at Alameda and reside in that city. Clayton Hoard, who has been in the employ of the S. P. Milling company, will leave Sunday for his old home in Kentucky. His departure is hastened by n...
Richard Jose. Makes Old' Ballads Popular [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
Richard Jose. Makes Old' Ballads Popular There is no going back on the returns as the election inspector would say, and the same will applyto the big success being recorded by Richard Jose, now touring with the farce-comedy, “Don’t Tell My Wife” which will be played here at the opera house Thursday evening, April 30th. Jose is the sweetest ballad singer this country has evojr known. Among the numbers he so beautifully renders, none appeals to the older people in the audience like “Belle Brandon,” a ballad that was copyrighted in 1843. When the singer begins you will see gJ”a_yh aired people all over the house straighten up in their seats and ere he concludes many of them have tears coursmg down their cheeks at the memory it revives. The comedy itself is said to be a work of considerable merit. It is somewhat Hoytesque in theme and at the same time shows originality in construction. It is clean-cut, not a particle off color in a single spot and totally devoid of suggestiveness. Unlik...

How They Found Ont. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
How They Found Ont. When the Lawtons had lived in Willow Park about a month, they were invited to a succession of little dinners at the houses of their new neighbors. Mr. Lawton was on a dyspeptic’s diet, and Mrs. Lawton was endeavoring to reduce her weight. ”1 suppose we shall have to eat all sorts of things we don't wish, or else seem rude,” said Mrs. Lawton, mournfully, as they set out for the first dinner. To their growing surprise, the bills of fare placed before them at each dinner, although not remarkably varied, were all composed of such dishes as they could both enjoy. “I don’t see how you all hit on. ...theright things, when ,M.F^-i^tv\ ; tou and 1 really ate such difficult guests,” said Mrs. Lawton, in a burst of confidence one afternoon when the neighbors were taking tea with her. The ladies looked at each other, and then one of them spoke. “Ton know Mary Sloan, who comes to wash for you Tuesday mornings?” she said. “Well, I have her Mondays, and Mrs. Green has her Wedne...

On German Tables. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
On German Tables. It is pleasant to learn that our German cousins are diversifying their cheese and sausage diet by importations from without. During the present year they'bought from other countries twice as many oysters as the year before and one-quarter more crabs. Figures at hand for nine months of 1007 indicate that when the year’s full tale has been told the German importation of oysters will reach 646 tons: of crabs, 1,011 tons; of lobsters, 1,005 tons; of caviar, 202 tons, and of tropical fruits. 168,785 tons.

A Good Fisherman. A small boy who lives near a lake was fishing and his mother had to call him five times to malic li iin hear, says the Philadelphia Telegraph. Finally, she landed on him. and. shaking him in a terrible manner, wanted to know why he did not answer.

Punlaliineiita (or Murder In Gnrhpe. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
Punlaliineiita (or Murder In Gnrhpe. Some interesting information concerning punishments for murder in foreign countries has been issued by the British Home Office. The countries which inflict no death penalty, however brutal or premeditated the crime, are Italy, Holland. Norway, Switzerland, Portugal and Russia, save where the lives of the Emperor, the Empress and the heir to the throne are concerned. The Canton of Zug. in Switzerland, imposes the lowest minimum penalty in the world, three years’ imprisonment, for willful homicide, the maximum punishment being imprisonment for life. Of those countries which itlmCi the death peßaiiy, ont rarely carry it out. Sweden .is most notable. Capital punishment is inflicted by decapitation, but the penalty imposed for premeditated murder is almost invariably commuted to penal servitude for life. Germany distinguishes between two kinds of murder —one, premeditated and intentional, is punishable by death; the second. intentional homicide withou...
Music of the Spheres. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
Music of the Spheres. The ancients were of th&amp; opinion that the planets in their movement through space produced severally the seven notes of the gamut. This music, it was contended, was imperceptible to human ears on account of the - fact that it was too powerful for our hearing. Others held that men did not hear it simply because they were so used to it, just as we do not_notice the roar of the city from our constant familiarity with it. The real “music of the spheres” is purely intellectual, lying in the great and splendid fact of the universe of law and order.
