Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 6 October 1881

Our Story Teller. BY CHARLES JEFFERSON THOM. WRANGLESVILLE. A NOVEL. [Continued] CHAPTER XXXI. I find myself very unpopular. "Though funic u.akr slight of libels, yet you may >ee bv them how tl.e wind fits: a- t iki h straw and throw it into the air, )«»u shall see l»v tliat wInch way Unwind is, which you shall notdo b) casting up a stone."—Johu Sehlen. After leaving Stevens, the tailor, went from place to place and talked with many persons. 1 found but few disposed to take my side of the dispute; instead of the bread of sympathy, I got the stone of condemnation. A few denounced my prosecutors to my face, and when my back was turned and I out of earshot, 1 was unsparingly dissected, of course to be proclaimed a brute. Nothing was more patent than the fact that good will toward me was unpopular. The brutal element and the humane vied with each other in pronouncing mi either knave or ass. Canting hypocrites, pharasees, and jail birds, stood ready at the word to each one hie...

American Women. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 6 October 1881

American Women. It may well be a source of national pride that all which is justly said of the self sacrifice and of the thoughtful and tender devotion of Mrs. Garfield to her husband during his long and distressing illness, might be said with equal justice of almost every Ameiiean wife under similar circumstances. Indeed, nothing less is expected of American w.&amp;gt;mcn; and though they attract little or no attention, such instances of wifely care and watchful affection are of canstant occurrence, in the palatial mansions of rich and in the humbler dwellings of the poor and lowly; so that when Mrs. Garfield is praised, the high eulogies pronounced upon her, belong not to her alone, but are tributes to the character, the disinterestedness and the fidelity of American wives in general. Indeed, so much is the exercise of all these womanly virtues loked upon as a matter of course, that the public would be greatly shocked at tbe manifestation of any luck of them in a case where th...

The mounds of Wisconsin afford to the scientific world one of the must unique subjects of study, and there is nothing like them in the United States, or, so far as known, in the world. They are called, from their shapes and resemblance tv certain animals, emblematic or effigy mounds. The object of erect ing them has been tin Known, and hence their significance has been hidden. Tnere are, however, certain ia fs now known in reference to the na*ive tribe, which promises to furnish a clew of their mounding. It U probable that a complete ethnology will vet be drawn out from these mounds, and other data, which shall solve som i of the many problems iv reference t.» Iha origin uf society, the rise of religion, and other sublects.

&M .Kmlietic Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 6 October 1881

&amp;amp;M .Kmlietic Wife. "Say, I'll tell you something if you won't blow it," was tlie way one man saluted another on Twelfth street, yesterday. "All*right— go alii ad." "Yoa won't give it away until I say so?" "Not a word." "Well, my wife has got to be an aesthetic" "No!" "Sure's your born. I have suspected that she was working that way for some time past, but it'i only within a day or two that I became positive." "Well that's wonderful. Bay, how does she act?" "Languid—very languid. She lops around, drawls her words, writes sad poetry, and the sight of an old pie-tin or a banged-up chroll] t entrances her. Congratulate me on mv luck." "I do—l do. That is—" "What?" "Doi.»; build hopes too fast. Ba sure you are right, and then go ahead. I labored for a whole year under the delusion that my wife was developing as an eeathetic, and when I came to talk to her father he said she was more than half idiot by nature. . Go slow—go slow.

President Arthur has as yet made known nothing of his intention regarding tlie selection of bis Cabinet. Stubble-Burning has begun, this year, .carrier than usual. Large quantities of hay and grain are yet In the field, and cannot fail to be endangered. Hold up, gentlemen, don't be in a hurry. The Contra Costa Fair begins at Paeheco, on Monday next, and continues through the week.

Livcrmore ha* now twenty-two saloons, and eight other places where liquor is sold—rthe largest number ever attained since 1875. An old toper remarks that the only plausible theory regarding the increase is the establishment of a Lodge of Good Templars in our midst.

Moreover they bewailed him, and all Israel marie great lamentation for him, aud mourned many days, saying. How is the valiant man fallen tbat delivered Israel." ' Mantle your hearts with gloom, Mantle your hearts with deepest gloom, Listen! a Natior is weeping; Valor and worth have sunk in the tomb, While for your liberty seeking. Weep, weep, with a holy tear Over the heto now sleeping: Cherish his name with endless prayer, .AngeN are bitterly weeping *' Our Nation weeps to-day, as six teen years ago it wept over the fall of a like great hero and martyr. Yes, sixteen years ago. We were just coming out from the cloud of a black and blasting war. Rebellion was about hanging out its truce and stacking its arms.

There was a considerable stir in the wheat market on Monday afternoon. A number of large holders seemed to have come to the conclusion that the English market had reached the top notch, and that an additional advance in the local market depended entirely upon the success of the bear movement in freights, which in turn might be set of! again by an easier market in England. They therefore became free sellers at $1.75. The English market on Monday was hardly as strong as it had been, and export...
