WIRELESS MESSAGE PICTURED. One of the Xew Hurt Remarkable Feut.« of Ibc Camera. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
WIRELESS MESSAGE PICTURED. One of the Xew Hurt Remarkable Feut.« of Ibc Camera. Photographing a wireless telegraph message is the newest feat of the camera, says the Metropolitan Magazine. This remarkable photograph was made in Nova Scotia late one night, when there was a continuous stream of messages leaving the wireless apparatus. When the plate was developed it showed certain well-defined lines, indicating tiie wires between the posts, and in addition a number of sharp flashes across the sky which could have been made by nothing except the passing of sharp electric waves. The photograph is causing a great deal of interest among electricians and scientists. It is said to be one of the most remarkable ever made. The opening of a regular wireless service across the Atlantic last October, while somewhat slighted, perhaps, by the newsgatherers on account of the press of vital news of present great import, makes none the less an epoch in the advance of civilization and the facilitation...
Happiness from Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
Happiness from Troubles. Being human, happily or unhappily, we cannot deny the comfort to be found in the reflection that misery never lacks the company It loves. We all have our troubles, and some of us derive much satisfaction from the contemplation of them. Indeecl, there are those who are happy only when wretched, but these we believe to be as few in number as they are disagreeable in association. The vast majority of humans are normal and disposed, therefore, in conformity with natural law, to smile when the skies are clear and to grieve under the portent of clouds; hence the ease with which worry takes possession of the mind, colors the disposition and makes a cripple of effort. That causes abound we know and must admit, as we do almost unconsciously the certainty of death, but too little cognizance is taken of the fact that the effect of mere apprehension. which is all that worry really is, may be subjected to simple mental treatment and be overcome. —George Harvey, in North ...
Bargain Sales In Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
Bargain Sales In Japan. Even In placid Japan they have bargain sales, but they conduct them on very different principles from the scrimmages we have over here. An amusing American woman has embodied her experiences of traveling alone in Japan in a most entertaining volume just published, whence may be gathered a description of a sale at the greatest trading house In Japan. The goods are not flung about. They are shown to advantage in locked cases, and the heads of departments keep the keys. Remnants, however, are laid on mats, and though there is keen anxiety to secure bargains, perfect order and quiet prevail. Babies toddle about quite comfortably, others sleep on their mothers’ backs. However orderly and quiet though the Japanese bargain sale may be, it is not free from the shoplifter, and it Is interesting to hear that the detective is ns necessary In the flowery laud as in England. The kimono sleeve Is a useful receptacle for unconsldered trifles. —London Ladies' Pictorial.

When You’re Married. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
When You’re Married. “Yes,” said Thomas W. Lawson, during a discussion of the March panic, “the stock market is a guileful maze. It is like some men's marriages. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, lunching at the Waldorf, met Mr. and Mrs. Jones. “ ‘Smith.’ said Jones, ‘we had a great time at the club last night. Sorry you missed it, old man.’ “Mrs. Smith gave a start, and after the Jones’ departure, she said in an odd voice: “ ‘John, yon told me you spent the whole evening at the club.’ “ ‘So I did. dear,’ said her husband readily. ‘And the reason Jones didn’t see me there was because he wasn’t there himself. Trying to deceive his wife, I suppose.’ ’’

Swift on Short Snellin|s. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 9 May 1908
Swift on Short Snellin|s. President Roosevelt would have received short shrift at the hands of Dean Swift. The latter roundly denounced the poets who had introduced the “barbarous custom of abbreviating words to fit them to the measure of their verses.” Swift instances “drudg'd” and “disturb'd” as mortal offenses. The custom so introduced had begun to dominate prose. Another cause—borrowed. Swift suggested, from the clipping process —which he held had contributed to the maiming of the language, “is a foolish opinion advanced of late years that we ought to spell exactly as we speak; which, besides the obvious inconvenience of utterly destroying our etymology, would be a thing we should never see the end of.”
