The Welcome Moisture. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

The Welcome Moisture. After a stretch of dry, cold weather, un paralleled at this season of the year, tbe management of the Weather Bureau seem to have seen fit to grant even our most extravagant wishes for the pluvial fluid. For several weeks, tbe elements have apparently been engaged in a terrific effort to produce a etorm-butjall to no avail. On several occasions, every indication pointed to the successful issue of this effort, but as often were our hopee shattered to earth. Wednesday morning, however, the spell was broken, and slowly but surely, the welcome rain descended. Up to this (Thursday) morning, the fall was but .32 of an inch; making the total for season, 5.83 inches. It then fairly "got down to business," and rained heavily till noon. The force of the storm is now spent, but now that the dry spell is fairly broken, there need be no more fears that we shall not receive as much rain as Is needed.

Dwelling House Burned. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

Dwelling House Burned. About one o'clock this (Thursday) morning, a Portuguese named Anton John, who is farming on E. W. Draper's ranch on the Arroyo|Mocho, six miles southeast of this place,awakened by the cracklingof fire. Upon springing up he found that the house was a mass of flames, and beyond the possibility of saving. Escaping quickly, with his family, from the burning building, he endeavored to save a portion of his furniture, and other goods; but so rapid was the work of destruction, that a small bundle of clothes belonging to his wife, was all he could secure. The building wa9 burned to the ground, together with all its contents. The house, a good story and a-half building, containing five rooms, belonged to E. W. Draper, the owner of the ranch, who is at present residing in San Jose. It was worth between $400 and $500, and was uninsured. The contents of building.consisting of furniture, provisions, etc., belonging to John, were valued by him at about $500. The fire is bel...

That Bogus Great Seal, Again. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

That Bogus Great Seal, Again. On the 19th, of April, 1878, J. L. Mitchel, station agent at this place, while exploring the loft of the railroad freight house, found a counterfeit of the Creat Seal of the State of California. This curious "find" caused considerable comment and speculation at the time, but no clue to its origin, how it came in the Livermore freight depot, or the purpose for which it was made, was ever discovered. The counterfeit we superior workmanship, is almost a fac simile of the original, and had evidently been used to produce a large number of impressions. Since its discovery, the seal has remained in the psession of Mr. Mitchel, and the circumstance has most probably faded away from the public mind. It is now to be revived, however, and perhaps in a very forcible manner. A few days since, Mr. Mitchel received a letter from Secretary of State Burns, requesting that the bogus seal be forwarded to him, at once, as an investigation into its origin,and the purpose fo...

The Close. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 February 1880

The Close. Tbe discomfiture aud rout of tbe late (smashed) printing ring was mai'e Complete last Monday, by the rejection, by the Board of Supervisors, of the bill of the Oakland Daily Times, for printing the De linquent Tai List, and the allowance of the bill of the Livermore Herald.

A Scientific Triumph. It is ody a few months since the first cake of PJiosphate Soap was manufactured by the Standard Soap Co., of S.n Francisco. As the ingredients and combination were the result of the best chemical science in the world there was every reason to expect sometiling far superior to any toilet soap ever made before, yet it was hardly exp cled that the medical profession would indorse Phosphate Soap for its remedial qu lities as 6trongly as they have. It is well known that physicians of high standing are conservative and slow to indorse anything new until they are thoroughly convinced of its merits. But when an article, is worthy of confidence they are willing to indorse it. The public no longer wait in doubt, because taey know that the phjsician who has lived in their midst for years an J earned a higi reputation in his profession will not in lorse an article unless he Is well satisfied of its merits.

THE BEST soap for toilet use ever manufactured. BEST because it contains all the excellencies of the most expensive foreign or American soaps without their defects. BEST because it combined strength with delicacy in such a wav that its strong detersive qualities do not injure the skin. BEST because it is the result of years of study and experiment in the soap manufacturing business, assisted by modern chemical discoveries. BEST because it contains ingredi ents beneficial to the skin, which unite chemically with the soap in such a manner as to increase its saponaceous qualities. Every chemist familiar with soap manufacture knows that some ingredients which are in themselves beneficial to the skin oanaot be saponified ; some are partially neutralized, while others injure the quality of the soap. There are soaps in the market which are to some extent benefioial to the skin, but they are inferior articles for toilet use. PHOSPHATE SOAP is the ONLY article offered to the public which com...
