The Ball Long Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

The Ball Long Ago. BY ANNA T. SADLIEK. lii truth, 'twas a ball to look back on. You asked—yes, the height of the season. Good partners, in plenty, of course. Enjoyed it? without rhyme or reason. There's a something about it apart, And why ? ah, indeed, you may ask ; To go back through i/tjfi years for the why Would, you see, be a wearisome task. Who was there ? Both fas'uion and beauty. When was it? Ah, yes, in December. And without? Very frosty and clear ; But lovely full moon, I remember. Back to-night through the glitter of many A. ball-roon, it comes just the same: A perfume of buds and tea-roses, And the strain of a waltz—nay, its name Has slipped from my memory somehow; In my ears sound tbe air, soft and low, Ad it leached me without in the moonshine, That night of the ball long ago. — Written for the Home Journal.

Tried and True. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

Tried and True. BY E. C. STBAX. "There! you've spoilt it!" "Oji, I didn't mean to!" "But you have, you see!" "I'm so sorry!" "That won't help it any." "I'm always doing something!" "I know it." The sweet-faced, sweet-voiced girl turned away with quivering lips. She was a wife scarcely six months wedded, but of late her husband was always finding fault, moody, and morose. And this was the once noble, unselfish Ernest Carrolton, the young artist, just stepping into fame and fortune, who won her girl heart and held it forever. How cold and distant he had grown, caressing her .only once in a while and then hastily. "I hope it isn't spoiled," she said, looking back with great, wistful, longing eyes and trembling lips. "I shall have to sell it for half price, but then no matter—l don't get along at all now. I have been constantly losing for six months." Six months covered the period of their married life, and he had hinted before of losses since she was his wife. Ethel went out with a swe...

New Raspberries of Merit. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

New Raspberries of Merit. This delicious fruit has,of late years, occupied a very prominent place in the gardens of our country, and the large size of some of the varieties that are now cultivated make quite acon- %- trast to the kinds that were grown fifteen or twenty years ago. Especially is this the case with some of the newer varieties that have mads their appearance within the li»st tif ill berries are"-—fltelbnr-ing.in some instances,over three inches in circumference. Ncr is their size and fine color their only merit, as it is the almost unanimous opinion of connoisseurs and amateurs, that the quality of the berries is equal to any that have been previously grown* This matter of quality, though not of very great importance to those who grow fruit for market, yet adds largely to the enjoyment of those who grow the berries for their own table use. Of the twenty or thirty varieties upon my grounds, the following that I will describe are perhaps attracting as much attention as an...

A Fijian Romance. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

A Fijian Romance. I remember, while in Fiji, when the people,or part of them, were undoubted cannibals, hearing of a sad and touching tale of woman's devotion and constancy. The also shows how white" men's lawsT affeot the savage mind and thouglft. Shortly after, Fiji was under the oontrol of the English, when the white men were inculcating the idea of civilization into them, when t inlaws inaugurated were as muoh a mjf\tny to their minds as would have been duotion of telegraphy. They coulu hardly be brought to understand that they were included within its provisions. Especially so a powerful chief named "Ravuso," who didn't bother his head about the new order of things, but went his own way after the fashion of his Fijian forefathers. Among the number of people who came under his jurisdiction was a young gallant, who devoted his time making love to all the women, and did not confine himself to the damsels alone, but carried on his amours with married women also. Fijian law is very ...

Nervous Exhaustion. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

Nervous Exhaustion. The victims of nervous exhaustion are numerous. They meet us at every turn. Their variety is numberless. There is the mother, exhausted with child-bearing and the care of the household, by sleepless nights and the insufficient digestion and assimilation of food. There is the woman of fashion, whose beauty has faded and whose charms are gone. The demands of society have robbed her of health, and t she now a wreck, both mentally and \physicftliy. the ,hypoohonariao, whoste gloomy viofes of lite, whose depression of spirits, whose mental debility, whose indisposition to activity, are a source of constant pain to himself and his friends. There is the melancholy one whose dejected spirits and cast-down manner, whose mental alienation and dismal condition, lowers the happiness of all who come in oontaot with him. Then there is the victim of sexual excesses, whose nervous state often borders on, and runs into, insanity: he suffers pangs of torture unknown in almost any ...

The Match Lincoln Made. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

The Match Lincoln Made. It was about a year before the fall of Riohmond, when both North and South seemed tottering to ruin, that a young lady, who had known Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln for years, visited Washington. She was an exceptionally sensible, warm-hearted, refined woman, gifted with a marvelous voice and a graceful figure, but she was very homely. She called at the White House, and when she had gone with his wife into a private room, Mr. Lincoln expressed his surprise to a friend that "some good man had not been lucky • enough to marry her," adding, " L — t, herself would be much happier if aY were a wife and mother." jf A few moments later, MajorY a volunteer officer, • spected by the President, and a " lor, came into the study.

The Past Year. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 1 January 1879

The Past Year. The year just past has been a very prosperous one for the Livermore Valley. Our crops have been most abundant: few fires., accidents, or casualities have occurred; great improvements have beeu made ; and the growth of this entire section has been most rapid, A large portion of the vast burden of debt which hung over the farmers of our Valley one ye;:r ago, has been lifted, aud many are now free, whose little homes were then endangered by the never-sleeping and ißterest«accumulaticg mortgage.

Pleasanton Letter. PLEASANTON, Dec 30. Ed. Herald:—At present writing it is tryingUard to rain. I assure you its a welcome visitor to all concerned, we had quite a good little time down here Christmas. Great many thought pleasanton was rather overreaching itself in attempting two Christmas trees at once, but this wa 3 a glorious mistake. Both trees were well patronized ; the attendance was very large, and all seemed to enjoy themselves. It Was much the largest gathering that ever assembled at the Centennial Hall, on any occasion. After Santa Claus had got through, the hall floor was cleared and dancing com menced, whiih was kept up until between one and two in the following morning. In a business point of view our town is very quiet, all very anxious to see rain before making a venture. But very little building is being done of late. Messrs Neal and Walton have just completed a neat little cottage for Mr Detjens. on a vacant lot just west of the Germauia Hotel. Same parties are now ...

Altamont Correspondence. Top of the Grade, Dec. 31, 1878. Eo. Herald—Sir: The suit for libel, brought by the President of our L. I. A. R. Club against the Aitamont Daily Falsifier, which has been occupying the Nob Hill Circuit Court for several years past, was brought to a sudden termination yesterday The editor, it seems, had hinted in his sheet that the President was not perfectly qualified to hold the important office of which he is the incumbent. Hence the suit. The Court has for several yeirs been endeavoring to get at the facts of the case; but, owing to the evident horror with which both plaintiff anil defendant appear to regard the truth, has been unable to do so. Yesterday, he announced suddenly that one should lie agaUst the other, and he who told the best biggest lie should win the case. The President won the toss, and bega u glibly, as follows: "I struck it rich in %0. You wouldn't believe it now, but I did. Knew enough to quit in time, t~o. Went to Africa. Rich mines th...
