Uses of Adversity. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Uses of Adversity. I f none were siok and uoiie were sad, What strvicj c -uld t*e render? I think if we wc-re always idad We scarcely could le tend< r. Did our Ltel-ivrd never need Oar patient ministratior, Earth would grow cold, and mUp, ind-.cd, Its sweetest consolation. If sorrow never claimed our heart. And eve y wieh were granted, Pa'ieuee would die and hope depart— Life would be disenchanted.

In the Future. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

In the Future. What is yonder i n the future ? Lift this mystic veil away; Let the morning sunlight gulden Fall on shadows grim and gray, Of the doubt end fears we borrow, Of the duath ohill and the sorrow Hovering o'er our lives to-day. T. 11 pa, there is not a glory Iv the onward gliding years I 8 -c we not, beyond the parting, As we gazj through failing tears, Fondest hopes and rosy visions ? U there not, then, some elysian Which the glowing sunlight cheers? Though wo may not lift that curtain Falling oVr our future liver, Ytt we know the jeirs are briugirg Rich reward f( r him jrLo ttrives, And, white cue day drops of soirow Ifatl to earth, npen the morrow We. shnil >-cc a plant that thrives.

The New Year's Party. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

The New Year's Party. " Then you won't go, Alice ?" " No, Herbert—l'm so sorry—but the baby !" " Oh, hang the baby !" and Herbert flung out of the room, slamming the door behind him. Alice stood looking at the door, growing whiter and whiter. Then she gave a heart-breaking cry, fell on her knees by the cradle, and holding her race in her hands, sobbed bitterly. She had. looked forward so long to going to this New Year's party. It was given by Mrs. Mount joy, one of the ieaders of society in Washington, and all that was eminent in politics, diplomacy, or literature, as well as distinguished in the fashionable world, was sure to be there. She had been kept so much at home since baby had been born that she really felt the need of a little variety and relaxation. But baby had been threatened with croup a week before, and the fond mother had not yet recovered from her fright. Baby, she admitted, was now better, " but not fit," she declared, "to be left, at least with only the narse to lo...

Advice to a Whistler. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Advice to a Whistler. Sometimes, my son, you will want to whistle. Do not entirely repress this desire to aspirate your feelings in sibbilant strains of wheezy music ; merely modulate and regulate it. Go off into the woods live or six miles from any habitation, if the desire comes upon you during business hours, and whistle there until the birds make you ashamed of your poor accomplishment. Do not yield to the temptation too readily, lest you become addicted to the habit and become a slave to it, and go whistling around even as a man who has lost a dog. There are men, my son, who can whistle musically ; once in a while you find men whose whistle is pleasant to the ear and soothing to the soul, but you only find one of these men every three or four thousand years, and they die young, sir; they die very young. You will observe that the best whistler is he who whistles least, and practices in solitude. The poor whistler, who flats lon the high notes and gasps on the lower ones, and whe...

American Meat and Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

American Meat and Wheat. The cattle and meat trades naturally I attracted much of the Commissioners' attention, and they closely examined the far Western stock yards", where cattle are loaded on the cars, and the Philadelphia stock yards and abattoirs, whence they are shipped to Europe as live or dead meat, as the case may be, and also the methods of oreparing the dead meat aud "refrigerating" and packing it on the steamers. They were charmed with the facilities given for this traffia iv Philadelphia, describing the arrangements as complete, and the abattoirs and yards as the most systematic and cleanly they had ever seen on either side of tho ocean. The trade is •i large one h^—live cattlo from April to September, and dead meat the rest of the year. It is a now business, being all the growth of the past four years. Martin, Fuller & Co., the chief shippers from Philadelphia, select the finest cattle-in thecouutry for this trade, refrigerate the meat for forty-eight hours...

A Scotch Tip. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

A Scotch Tip. A trifle often has a large purchasing • power. It is not necessary to learu this from the tall official in gorgeous uniform at the entrance of some Italian palace, where a few soldi make the man all your own. It is justified iv Scotland, no doubt, by the adage that many littles make a mickle. This reminds me of a visit made to Holyrood, where we were shocked by what we foolishly supposed to be a case of infra dig. At the entrance we were solemnly assured by a seneschal in magnificent raiment, stiff with gold embroidery, that, owing to the presence of tho go'veruor-gener-al, the palace would be closed to visittors for several clays; adding, however, " But you am Atßeriear.s tr;—ollin?. I see; I must speak to the lord-cuambei-lain." Thereupon his magnificence moved away, knee-breeches, staff, aud all, and d tiring his absence we will suppose that he was closeted with the chamberlain, instead of chaffing in a corridor with his cronies. In due time he returned with the air...

Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Babies. At the banquet of the Army of the Tennessee in honor of General Grant, Mark Twain was appointed to respond to the unique toast, "The babies; as they comfort us in our sorrows, let us not forget them in our festivities," and did it as follows : I like that toast. We have not all had the good fortune to be ladies. Wo have not all been generals, or poets, or statesmen, but when the toast works down to babies we stand on common ground, for we have all been babies. It is a shame that, for a thousand years, the world's banquets have utterly ig' nored tte baby, as if he didn't amount to anything. If yon will stop *nd" tMn'K !*miL,n}^—if you go back fifty or a Jinudred years to yoar early married life and recontemplate your lirst baby—you will remember that he amounted to a good deal aud something oyer.

Washington as a Fireman. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Washington as a Fireman. In 1774 the Friendship Fire Company, which still exists, was organized. It at first consisted of citizens who, out of " mutual friendship," agreed to carry to every fire " two leathern buckets and one great bag of ozuaburg or wider linneu." "Washington was made an honorary member, and when he went as a delegate to the Congress of 1774, at Philadelphia, he examined the fireengines in use there. On his return to Philadelphia to the Continental Congress in 1775, he bought from one Gibbs a small fourth-class engine for £80 10 s., and just before he set out for Boston Heights to become com-mander-in-chief he dispatched this little engine to the Friendship Company. When in Alexandria during his younger days, he always attended at fires, and assisted to extinguish them. In the last year of his life a fire occurred near the market. He was riding down King Street, followed by his servant, also ou horseback, and he saw the Friendship engine poorly manned. Riding up to...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

A disgraceful personal rencounter occurred in this place this week, with the details of which, passing from mouth to mouth, our people are thoroughly familiar. We refrain from a detailed description of the unfortunate atTuir, not on account of the personality of the principals, nor of their position in this community, but in consideration of the disgrace which a circulation of those details through the public print would unjustly, but uoue the less surely, bring upon their families. We do however, most sincerely believe —strange as the proposition may seem— that this affair will in the end prove to have been productive of much good. We leave our readers to draw their own inferences regarding our meaning. The Constitution of this State provides that Boards of Supervisors or Town Trueteas shall, during the *nonth oi February, of each year, fix the rates to be charged by water companies for twelve-month next ensuing. It has been held that this section of the constitution needs legislat...

Water in an acre of land. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Water in an acre of land. In replying to an inquiry for some crop to raise in an orchard, Mr. J. Harris, iv his Walks aud Talks on the Farm, in the America Agriculturist, cites the result of experiments made in Juue, 1870, by Messrs. Lawes & Gilbert, of England, to ascertain not only the atnouut of water in land lying fallow and in that on which a crop of barley was growing. In making this experiment each nine inches of earth to the depth of four and a half feet were separately tested. These analysis showed that an acre of dry soil three inches deep weighs 1,000,000 pounds or 500 tons ; fiftyfour inches deep weighs eighteen times as much, pr 9,000 tons: when wet, about one-eight more.

DUBLIN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

DUBLIN LETTER. Ed. Herald: A considerable force of men are still employed on the Dougherty Ranch—lt it said that some miles of fence are to be rebuilt. It is rumored that Mr. H. Strang, a ci devant Dublin hotel keeper, is about to become host of one of the principal hotels in Pleasanton. Rut as your Pleasanton correspondent is an undoubted believer in the dogma of State Rights, I will leave it to him to verify. Sunday last, we had a moderate rain, which lasted from about half past eleven in the morning till sometime in the night. Our jovial friend Geo. Thurston passed through Wednesday or Thursday of last week, accompanied by two ''Caballeros" from Livermore, who came, they said, to see him past Dublin, as they had heard it was a dangerous town. George passed through the town unharmed. Sunday a week ago, that buggy party that set out from Livermore, took Dublin in, on its circuit. Your correspondent did'nt see them, but some of our Dublin ladies did. This ought to hare been in last ...
