Polly Larkin. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 December 1899
Polly Larkin. San Francisco, Cal. An editor of a bright and newsy country paper comments on the present style of ladies wearing long dresses on the street, and asks the blunt question, “Is it not extremely bad taste for ladies to wear dresses that they must needs gather up in the back and pull ungracefully around them?” Now I have just been waiting to answer a question like that, Mr. Editor, and I but echo the sentiment of many refined and dainty women when I say that it is not half so ungraceful or disgraceful either, and not nearly such bad taste as it would be to let their skirts sweep the filthy sidewalks made uncleanly by mankind, who never fail to expectorate on the sidewalk whenever the spirit moves them to do so, and who are not only guilty of this habit, but fail to remember that they carry handkerchiefs. Imagination is better than words here, but if the guilty parties would stop and lake one glance up and down the sidewalks, 1 imagine that they wjuld blush at the the sight...
BRIEF REVIEW Telephones on Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 December 1899
BRIEF REVIEW Telephones on Farms. The rural telephone service is said to be most advanced in the Western Reserve counties of Northwestern Ohio. In some of these counties not only is there a telephone office in every township, but hundreds of farmers have telephones in their homes. One of the companies is strictly a farmers’ company, being operated by eight farmers, who own everything from franchise to switchboard. The primary object in constructing these lines was not to build them for an investment, but as a help in the transaction of business and to give families some of the social privileges that are too often lacking on the farm. The rental price of a telephone is $l2 a year in advance, or $1.25 by the month, and this entitles the subscriber, his family, hired help and guests to the free use of the lines and those with which the company has reciprosity contracts. The low rate or rental is made possible in the country only by placing several telephones on each circuit, usually on...
Drunken Cats Fitrlit. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 December 1899
Drunken Cats Fitrlit. A most exciting cat fight occurred recently in the back room ot N. Bergmeyer’s saloon at Greenup, Ky. Thirteen cats met there, presumably to discuss plans by which they could most effectually disturb midnight slumbers, when, in the midst of a discussion, and while a large tomcat was making an impassioned address, a dispute arose and the fun began. Fur flew and a din was made that aroused the town. It was dangerous to attempt to quell the riot, as the cats seemed perfectly wild. After a few minutes they ceased from sheerexhaustion, and three cats lay stone dead, the others staggering off to their various homes. They presented such an appearance of intoxication that an investigation was made, and it was found that the cats had been drinking beer which had been left in a keg in a corner of the room. The keg was watched, and late that evening a cat was seen to walk into the room, slyly creep to the keg, where it drank until hilarous.

A HERO OF THE MINE. He Kinked HU Life to Save That of a Fellow Workman. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 December 1899
A HERO OF THE MINE. He Kinked HU Life to Save That of a Fellow Workman. Heber Franklin, a young man employed at the Clear Creek mine, is as much a hero as any man who ever braved death on the battlefield. Franklin sought not glory, but to save a human life. There was a fire in the mine. The men were called out. Then they were about to shut off the air in order to stop the flames, when it was learned that a lone miner was working deep in the mine beyond the point where the fire started and was then raging with growing strength. Here is the story of the subsequent events: Foreman Thomas immediately called for volunteers to go with him into the mine to rescue the man. Several attempts were made by different ones, but they were driven back by the flames, and the cry of “Powder! caused a hasty retreat. Finally Heber Franklin, a young man whose work keeps him on the outside, said, “I will go.’’ And accompanying Foreman Thomas he pressed on through the fire and found the man working away t...

WASHINGTON’S_LAST YEARS. HU Happr Life With HU Wile st Mount Vernon. At the time of his retirement to Mount Vernon, after the expiration of his term as president, “the tall figure of Washington was only slightly bent and he was still supposed to weigh upward of 200 pounds,” writes William Perrine of “The Last Years of Washington’s Life” in The Ladies' Home Journal. “Excepting his gray hair and his false teeth and some trouble In bearing there was little of the usual appearance of age in his muscular person. his gait and his strong, pockmarked face. He was affable and merry wift his best friends, but while he had the true hospitality of a southern gentleman In Inviting every visitor from a distance to his table or to a bed over night, his politeness was generally formal. Yet if he particularly enjoyed the conversation of a guest he would pay him the compliment of listening to him until after 9 o’clock, or even of lighting him with the candle to a bedroom for the night. Mrs. Washingto...
The Buccaneers, [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 December 1899
The Buccaneers, The original "boucaniers” were * wild and picturesque gang. To the waist they were generally Clothed in a sunburned and weather beaten skin, and they wore pantaloons of a coarse linen, dyed and stiffened with the blood of bulls' and pigs and held up by a belt of rawhide, stuck full of deadly knives. Their apparel terminated with pigskin boots ami no stockings, and they carded a long barreled firelock, loaded with ounce balls of lead. They were animated with a common hatred of the Spaniard, which in their eyes justified any attack upon his person or property, and by a wild sort of attachment to each other in their perilous lives, which led to their being known as the “Brethren of the Coast.” When the Spaniards drove them into the career of marauders upou the sea, the word buccaneer took a new meaning, though they were also known as freebooters. This was a mongrel English word, “buiten” being Dutch and “bueten” German for plunder. Of this word the French made “fribnste...

Laura Meals, Editor in Chief* It the American girl does not grow up to regard marrying as a pecessity and a duty; if she does not make it the goal of her ambition and the thing of all things to be spught, it will not be the fault of the journals and magazines afloat in this country. In the columns of these papers she is ex horted to neatness, economy, helpfulness and kindness, in fact, to all the virtues of womanliness. Why should she possess all these traits? Because it is right? Because it is her duty to herself and to the world? Far from it. Why then? Simply because, without these attributes, she might not be able to get a husband. Aunt Prudence converses a bechelor on the subject of matrimony. He tells her of a girl he loved and would have made his own had he not caught her in the act of buying a tweuty-dollar hat when he knew ...
