A Mother's Treasure. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

A Mother's Treasure. I was just twenty-two, but had been a widow three years. In onr pretty cottage, shaded by stately trees and wreathing vines, John and I, had been blissfully happy for twelve months; but then he died suddenly, leaving me and my tiny baby, Pearl, all alone. Mrs. Crane, an old ludy, noble and true but homeless, came to live with us, and her companionship enabled me to remain in the cottage where John had brought me a bride, and around which clustered so many sweet and sacred memories. I had almost worshipped my good husband, and my grief-burdened heart, after his death, turned its affections more tenderly and devotedly to the beautiful baby girl that had been given üb, and that nestled, smiling and helpless, in my arms. I watched her grow with the utmost pride and joy, for she was surpassingly beautiful. Her features were classically pure, and her hair, a rich golden brown, silky and soft, clustering in ringlets over her proud little head, while the great eyes, wit...

Down in a Lead Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

Down in a Lead Mine. At Joplin, Kansas, a "drummer" heard that a man at Lone Film, about one mile and a half from the town, was about to purchase a stock of goods to open a saloon. That information set tied him at once. He determined to slip off in the night and sell the man a bill of goods before his competitors got through with .their game of billiards. He grabbed his sample case and started forth to walk to Lone Elm. He knew all about the direction but had forgotten about those deserted shafts. He fell down one of those yawning chasms. In his fail he caught hold of what the miners call the landing board, and there he hung at midnight over one hundred feet of pitchy darkness. " Then," said he, " I began to realize what a wicked mortal I was. My hands were good and strong, but I wished they hid been turned to honest labor in their youth, so that they might have been stronger. I wished only for one single moment to spit on my hands, but I dare not let go for fear the other would not...

Keeping up the Breed. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

Keeping up the Breed. In a paper read at the late meeting of the Sheep Breeder's association of Michigan, upon the question " How to Keep up the Standard and Improve our Stock," the following views were presented ; How are we to keep up the standard and improve our stock? By buying only of responsible parties, not ot the many speculators who talk of the purity of the stock and will sell cheap, etc. Understanding the importance of pedigree will be advantageous to every breeder. Coupling properly is the secret of success, and in order to do this we must know how animals are bred. Our improvers of stock have had an ideal in their minds to breed to wool and this has been attained by constantly breeding in a line, in some cases they may have bred to close affinity in order to produce certain types and also uniformity. This has been and may be done under proper circumstances without injury to constitution or breeding properties. We have ho history of any one doing more to improve the mutt...

Cucumber Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

Cucumber Culture. Although the cucumber is pronounced by physicians to be very unhealthy, yet it is very generally cultivated ; and, in fact, no kitchen garden can be complete without it. It usually sells for a good price in market, especially in the form of pickles, if these are put up as they should be. My mode of culture is to dig out good sized holes, six feet apart each way, and place about one peck of well-rotted manure in each ; then All up somewhat higher than the original surface, so that after the dirt settles it will be about level with the surrounding ground, and plant eight or ten seeds in each hill. If very dry I give them a sprinkling each evening after sunset, before they come up, as well as through the season, for they are plants which require considerable moisture. I hoe often, and after danger from the striped bug is passed thin to four plants in a hill. The striped bug, Diabrotiea vitlata, seems to be a natural enemy of the cucumber, and against him I have tried ...

Etna in Eruption. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

Etna in Eruption. Comparing with jßtna, Spallanzani called the former a volcano d» boudoir. Jgtna haa a surface of several thousand miles, and its bases support a dense population. At the same ratio, the State of New York would afford comfortable room to 200,000,000 inhabitants. The absolute height of JEtna varies from time to time, as its main cone is modified bj every erup tion. In 1832 the English naturalist Smyth, by means of trigonometrical operations, reckoned its elevation at 10,219 feet; but a short time afterwards Hersohel calculated it at 10,222 feet by barometrical observation. Quatrefages found that it was only 10,175 feet in 1317, and lately other measurements have given a result of 10,800 feet, though their correctness seems very doubtful, m If the climbing of Vesuvius is a promenade, that of iEtna is brief, but painful. Starting from Catania in summer clothes, one must dou the heaviest winter ulster before reaching the summit, on penalty of freezing. The thermometer, ...

Beaconsfleld and Peel. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

Beaconsfleld and Peel. The alleged growth of the influence of the crown ia coincident with a great increase of the court oirole by the marriages of the various members of the royal family, so that the court influence in politics becomes more and more evident. A recent incident shows the condition of the public mind in England, and the risks of the Beacons field policy. Sir Robert Peel spoke severely in the House of Commons of the Queen's correspondence with Lord Cnelmsford, and alluded to Thackeray 'b unflattering portraits of the Georges, one of whom, and the most reactionary, was the Queen's grandfather. Presently a friend of the Prince of Wales intimated, in a paper called Vanity Fair, thai the royal family intended to cut Sir Robert. To this foolish assertion Sir Robert replied, in a letter which the editor of Vanity Fair begged him to withdraw, and which was privately shown to the Prince of Wales, who" caused Sir Robert to be informed that he had not authorized the statement in...

What Every House Needs. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

What Every House Needs. One of the worst faults of our very faulty modern architecture, as applied to houses, is found in the fact that architects do not take into their plans the possibilities of sickness in the family. No house is properly constructed that has not in it a room or rooms expressly designed for the accommodation of the sick and the inhrm. This room should have a warm sunny exposure. The window light should be ample and command the widest possible view. The next essential is a good liberal hre place. By the warmth which it generates, a; d facilities for ventilation, the whole room is kept wholesome and pure. Not only so, but a slowly burning fire with its lights and shades, its rising sparks and glowing brands, its curling and many-colored smoke, and its changeful embers, furnishes ceaseless diversion to tho sick one who lies watching it. Nothing is more soothing and quieting than the influence which subtly steals over tlie senses of one who gazes dreamily into the ge...

In School Days. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

In School Days. BY J. G. WHITTIER. Still sits the school-house by the road A ragged beggar sunning; Around it still the sumachs grow, And blackberry vines are running. Within the master's desk is seen, Deep scarred by raps official; The warping floor, the battered seats, The jack-knives carved initial. The charcoal frescoes on its wall; Its door's worn sill, betraying The feet that, creeping slow to school, Went storming out to playing! Long years ago, a winter sun Shone over it at setting; Lit up its western window-panes, And low eaves icy fretting. It touched the tangled golden curls, And brown eyes full of grieving, Of one who still her steps delayed When all the school were leaving. For near her stood the little boy Her childish favor singled; His cap pulled low upon a face Where pride and shame were mingled. Pushing with restless feet the snow To right and left, he lingered; As restlessly her tiny hands The blue-checked apron fingered. He saw her lift her eyes; he felt The soft...

A Mountain Trip. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 2 July 1879

A Mountain Trip. We had the pleasure, during the past week, of making a trip to the very interior of the vast extent of mountainous country which lies to the south and southeast of this place. Having heard much of the wild beauty of nature in the deep fastnesses of our mountains, we accepted an invitation from Mr. A. E. Crane, and his son, Henry Crane, stock-raisers, living about twelve miles southeast of Livermore, to make with them a trip to the interior thereof. Leaving Livermore last Friday evening we rode to Mr. Crane's place, the road to which leads up and over the high ridge on the left bank of the Arroyo Mocho. As we rode up this bold ridge, the gloaming of night falling about us, illumined only by the feeble light of a few scattered moonbeams struggling through a fleecy cloud, the effect was something weird and entrancing. Aside from the soughing of the wind through the branches of the great oaks which relieve the bareness of the great brown ridge, not a sound broke the sil...
