DISSATISFIED. I uster know a feller ’at was never satisfied *lth any clime he ever found, an’ though he tried and tried T’ git'a place ’at suited him his lookin’ was in vain, They wasn’t any sech a spot, from Oregon to Maine. He didn’t like the East because the people was so prim An’ very proper like; he said they knowed too much fer him; He didn’t like the West because the people was so crude, He never could endure t’ stay where anyone was rude. He didn’t like the North because the winters was so long, An’ couldn’t stand the South because the summer heat was strong; An’ so he kep’ a-goin’ an’ a-goln' till he died.

.jptpwSlfa “Bill, why does this cloud overhang your bright young brow?’’ I asked kindly. Bill sighed. .Jle is tall and fair and broad-shouldered and twenty-two, and football-made. He thinks he knows the world and human nature. “I’m worried to death, Molly.’’ “Oh, Bill! What about?” “The Club,” said he, sadly. “You remember how well we did last year?” I didn’t, but what matter? “Of course,” I said. “We’re rotten this season. We haven’t a man in the team who can play full-back. Last year we had Morgan, but he's gone back to Cardiff — Just like a beastly Welshman.” "But if his home’s there?” I objected mildly. # “Ugh! It's sickening. We’ve got a much heavier lot of fixtures now, and we shall just be swamped. Think of the Bollington Rovers, for Instance; they’ll simply wipe the ground with us “I hope not,” said I, feelingly. “If this deluge goes o% ” He dropped into an easy chair and plunged his bands into his pockets. “Look here, Molly,” he burst out. “you’re always a good friend to a ...
Baseball In Kansas. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 April 1908
Baseball In Kansas. The person who looks upon athletics with contempt and Inquires what use there is lu football or baseball will be likely to have his views modified by a letter written by a member of a baseball team to the Omaha World-Herald. It goes to prove that the arm which wields tbe bnt and the band which catches the ball can make play of work. We left here at 7:50 Tuesday morning to go to Hutchinson, a distance of forty miles. Tbe only train we could catch was a freight. Well, we got out of Wichita about ten miles, when one of the cars had a hot box, and that delayed us about three hours. Between Wichita and Hutchinson there are about ten stops, and we had heavy freight for each one. It got along until about 12:30, aud we had still twenty miles to go. We began to get very nervoilk, when McNeely thought of a plan. It was for all of us to put on our suits and help unload freight. Everybody agreed, and by the next stop we were all ready for action. It would have done your hear...

cC C CUBES D.D.D. MALARIA Malaria is due to impurities and poisons in the blood. Instead of beingrich, strong and healthy, the circulation has become infected with germs of disease which destroy the rich, red corpuscles that furnish nourishment and strength to the body, and reduced this vital fluid to such a‘ weak, watery condition that it is no longer able to keep the system in health, or ward off the countless diseases and disorders that assail it. The loss of these red corpuscles takes the color and glow of health from the cheek, and we see pale, sallbw faces and washed out, chalky complexions among the first symptoms of Malaria, But Malaria is a general systemic disease, and as the blood becomes more heavily loaded with its germs we have more serious a*nd complicated symptoms ; the impure blood having its effect on all parts of the body. The appetite fails, digestion is weakened, chills and slight fever are frequent, and the sufferer loses energy- and ambition because of a const...

SUES POLICE WHO IMPRISONED HIM. University Student Who Was Charged With Murder Now Asks $50,000 Damages. Berkeley.—Alleging that his arrest for the murder of Frank Bellows injured his reputation, occasioned him great mental suffering and caused him to lose credits and standing at the University of California, Harry G. Kleinschmidt commenced suit In Oakland against Marshal August Vollmer of Berkeley and his deputies for $50,000 damages. The complaint urges two distinct causes of action, one for false arrest and orie for malicious prosecution. Bellows, the son of a Chicago millionaire, was found dead in Berkeley on July 26, 1907. By his side lay a bottle of poison, and after, a cursory examination, a Coroner's jury returned a verdict of suicide. The young man’s relatives in the East asked the Marshal to investigate the case, and developments led to the arrest of Kleinschmidt. It was found that Kleinschmidt had been seen with Bellows, that there was reason to believe they had quarreled...
Avalanche Wipes Out Town. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
Avalanche Wipes Out Town. Buckingham, Quebec. —Half the little French hamlet of Notre Dame de Salette, sixteen miles from here on the Lievre River, disappeared Sunday under a sliding mountain, and at least thirty of its small population are known to have perished. The hamlet has no telephone or telegraph, nor is it on a railroad. Meager bits of news of the disaster came in by messenger from the physicians and other rescuers who were hurried there when the first calls for aid came. At 5 o’clock, just as the little hamlet began to stir for early mass, part of the mountain started to slide toward the river. It tore a path of death and destruction for its way, and those who were not killed when their homes were engulfed were left buried under the mass of rock and earth.
