The I.affy in the Moon. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
The I.affy in the Moon. An amateur astronomer writes of the “lady in the moon“It is a very beautiful face seen In profile and uplifted, as though in proud disdain of things terrestrial. The curve of the throat is exquisite, and indeed the entire outline is marvelously lifelike. The moon lady may best be observed through a small opera glass when our satellite is at half. At that time the tip of the chin about touches the rermiuator—that is. the dividing line between the light and dark portions of the lunar surface. Most people can recognize the man in the moon. Well, the hair of the lady, in which I can always fancy I see a spray of orange blossom, forms the man’s left eye, the nose and mouth his nose, and the chin and throat the man’s mouth.”

HIS FATHER’S HONOR [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
HIS FATHER’S HONOR The last rays of the setting sun threw a shaft of pink and gold into the parlor of the pretty cottage wherein sat Mrs. Raymond and her oldest son. It was the day of his father’s funeral, and Harry Raymond was gazing curiously at his mother, who looked strangely different from usual in her new widow's cap. The younger children were playing at having a funeral of their own in the back kitchen. “There were very few people at the funeral to-day. mother.” said the young man, gloomily. “They wouldn't be able to get away from their offices. I daresay,” answered the widow. “Father never did make any friends, or hardly any,” said his son musingly. “1 wonder how It was?" His mother made no reply. “And he stuck in the same place all his life, though he had twice the brains of the chief cashier,” went on the 'ad. A sigh was the only answer. “Seems as though something kept him back and held him down always.” “Aye!” No sooner had the monosyllable escaped the woman's lips than s...

An Anecdote of King Oscar, [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
An Anecdote of King Oscar, Once the king was inspecting a class of young girls, who were naturally overcome by a visit from their sovereign. “Can you tell me,” asked King Oscar, “the names of the great kings of Sweden ?” “Gustavus Adolphus,” answered one girl- “ Charles X 11.,” responded another. “Oscar II.,” stammered the smallest, who was something of a courtier in her way. The king, much amused, went up to her and asked her to tell him of the great events of his reign. The child blushed, hesitated and finally, In tears, murmured: “I don’t know any.” The king smiled, stroked the child’s hair and said: “Don’t cry, dear! I don’t know any myself.”—Washington Star.
