Our Story Teller. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

Our Story Teller. THE MILL. CHIMEY 'Twas when I was courting Katie that the accident I'm going to tell you about happened. But for that same accident, I don't think Katie and I would be man and wife this day, for you see mv father was set against the match, Katie being only a laborer's daughter, while he himself was foreman in the mills, getting good wages, and thought a great deal of by his employers. And if it wasn't for Katie, I don't think I'd be here now to tell you about it, for 'twas she that saved my life, through hitting on a plan that never once came into the heads of me or my comrades—aye, or of those that you'd have thought would know better than any of us. I was not brought up to my father's trade, having been taken when young by a brother of my mother's, a master bricklayer living in the town. When my uncle died I came home to Lisgarvenfora bit, just to see my father, and finding that they were at work on the new buildings at the mills, I looked for employment there, a...

Why the Foreman Dodges the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

Why the Foreman Dodges the Editor. The foreman of a Montreal paper is in trouble. In making up his forms he mixed an article on Catholic advances in Afrii-u with a recipe for making tomato catsup, and has been dodging the editorial shotgun ever since. As published, the article reads: "The Roman Catholics claim to be making material advances in Africa, particularly in Algeria, where they have 185,000 adherents and a missionary society for Central Africa. During the past three years they have obtained a linn footing in the interior of the continent, ami have sent forth several missionaries into the equatorial regions. They are accustomed to begin their work by buying heathen children and educating them. The easiest and best way to prepare them is first to wipe them with a clean towel, then place them in dripping-pans and bake till they are tender. Then you will have no difficulty in rubbing them through a sieve, and will save time by not being obliged to cut them in slices and cook fo...

Mosaics. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

Mosaics. Strong language utterly fails to bolster a weak argument. Be more ready to laugh yourself than to raise the laugh in others. When you face a difficulty never let it stare you out of countenance. The intellect of the wise is like glass—it admits the light and reflects it. There are flaws in diamonds, Hies in amber, and faults iv every man. Work for the character until it r>e renowned; then it will work for thee. He who is ashamed of his poverty will surely be arrogant of his wealth. The man who feels certain that he will not succeed is seldom mistaken. To be agreeable in society it behooves one neither to 6ee nor remem her a good many things. Very amiable and good natured are those people who have their own way in everything. At a leap year party given by some fashionable young ladies in Washington, several of the gentlemen wore vests cut low in the neck, had lace ruffies around their throats, and carried fans ami bouquets. They must have looked too sweet for anyt...

A Wonderful Feat of Recollection. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

A Wonderful Feat of Recollection. The history of the celebrated conjurer, Robert Hondin, furnishe= a remarkable example of the power of memory acquired by practice. He and his brother, while yet boys, invented a game which they played in this wise: They would pass a shop window and glance into it as they went by without stopping, and then at ' the next corner compare notes and see which could remember the greatest number of things in the window, including their relative positions. Having tested the accuracy of their observations, they would go and repeat the experiment elsewhere. By this means they acquired incredible powers of memory, so that, after running by a shop window once, and glancing as they passed, they could enumerate every article in it. "When Robert became a professional conjuror, this habit enabled him to achieve feats apparently miraculous. It is told of him that, visiting a friend's house where he had never been before, he caught a glimpse of the book-case as he pas...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

The greatest trouble in making a vineyard is experienced the first fccason. Obstacles arise, which, unless provided for, and met with determination, will make the outlay of the would-be vineyardist a c unplete loss. First, there must be a thorough loosening of the soil to a depth of fully fourteen inches, before planting, and occasional cultivation during the sea pon, to keep the moisture near the surface and prevent the young plants from death by drought. This can oe readily accomplished if the above course be taken. And second, there must be some means adopted to prevent the ravages of the rabbits on the tender shoots. Otherwise, puss will gnaw off the young leaves as, fast as they appear, thus stunting, and in time killing the vine. Rabbits are fought in several ways: First, and best, by rabbit-tight fences; second, by poison, applied to green fruit; and third, by good dogs in the vineyard. The first plan is expensive, but thoroughly effective; cither of the latter may be entirel...

San Francisco Market. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 December 1881

San Francisco Market. Wheat—We quote No. 1 shipping, si 60@1 62|; No. 2 do, $1 55(3;1 57 1 p> ctl. The receipts and exports from San Francisco since July Ist to date have been as follows: " Receipts, 11,422,186 ells; exports, 10,735,114 ctls. The Liverpool market has weakened again, and our exporters are not thereby encouraged to enter into new engagements. The wheat market is in a decidedly unfavorable condition from whatever side the situation is viewed. Not only have local holders of wheat suffered by the shrinkage in values, but also exporters and others having cargoes afloat. The holders of tonnage now loading, of course, come in for their share. The local wheat market has assumed a more definite shape within the past twenty-four hours. There is Less of a deadlock between buyers and sellers, but the former feel so insecure in their position that they do not care to buy at all. Besides all our prominent exporters, being holders of large amounts of wheat, are really in...

Horticultural Commissioners. Oakland, Dec. 12, 1881. The Board of Horticultural Commissioners met this morning, at the Court House, at 10 o'clock. Present, Commissioners Mendenhall, Prval and Crane. The Board districted the county as follows: ()akland and Brooklyn Townships, District No. 1; Eden Township, District No. 2; and Murray and Washington Townships, District No. 3. Mr. Prval examines District No. 1, Mr. Crane, No. 2, and Mr. Mendenhail, No. 3. The Board desires to warn parties against purchasing trees infected with the scales or other noxious insects. Nurserymen should be compelled to disinfect their trees before shipping them. The Board has examined trees received from San Jose nurserymen, this season, which were so badly infected with aspidiotus peril iciosus, or San Jose scales, that the tree would be killed in three years, besides scattering the insect over the vicinity. Parties who desire, can procure Mr. Cooke's •'Treatise on Insects Infesting Fruit Trees," from any me...
