Hints on Clearing Tables and Washing Dishes. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

Hints on Clearing Tables and Washing Dishes. Some one pays, •'The idea! Every body knows how to do that, without being told." But I'm not so sure of that; on the contrary lam quite certain that some people by putting a few suggestions into practice would find their task of table-clearing and dish-washing both hastened and made less unpleas ant. I will tell you how my Auut Mattie does, and how I have dove ever since I learned Ler way. She has quite a family always at table, so of course there are a good many dishes to care for. She never sets away a good table-dish with h little meat or vegetable in it; the meat, if any be left, should be put on a small common plate or platter, and the vegetables treated in like manner. Tho table-dishes if set aside with only a little of anything in them become crusted about the edges with their contents, giving them an untidy appearance, and are als > liable to breakage. The pieces of bread she puts in a tin box by themselves, because if ...

The Two Clerks. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

The Two Clerks. In Market Square, in the pleasant city of Merryport, was a crookeryware store, over the door of whioh was a black sign bearing in gilt letters the name of Benjamin Hudson. For many years this crockery store had been there, with the great pitch»r hanging in front for a sign; indeed, when Mr. Hudsou first opened the store, some forty years previous, he was quite a young man, and the sign over his door was bright and handsome; but vow his eyes had grown dim, and the owner was called " Old Hudson "by all the boys aud girls of the city. Mr. Benjamin Hudson had grown rich in Iris business, for he had conducted it all himself, and taken care that nothing should be wasted or lost by neglect. He had made mistakes, to be sure, as every man will make some blunders during a lifetime, bat by skillful management he quickly recovered from them. Sixty-Uve years had begun to bend over Mr. Hudson's shoulders aud dim the brightness of his eye, and he found business more irksome than it...

Learning to Sing. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

Learning to Sing. Let us consider for a moment how the case stands in regard to that small fraction of mankind who attempt to sing in some fashion or other. The great majority of these never learn at all; they sing by the light of nature, using their voices in any way that will produce the notes their ears guide them to ; and, no doubt, with naturally good voices and naturally good ears, music may result which is quite tolerable, though infinitely inferior to what it might be made. But many persons do " learn to sing," and instruction of this kind forms a tolerably large professional avocation. What, then, does this imply ? In most cases, uufortunately, little or nothing, so far as the true art is concerned. If a girl who finds she can sing a little asks for some lessons from an ordinary teacher we know pretty well what will be done : there may be, just as a matter of form, a few exercises given ; but the great aim will be to teach her the notes of certain songs, so as to provide he...

A Marriage For Money. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

A Marriage For Money. In New York City, a princely mansion was offered for sale a few years ago, about which hung a sad story. A man of enormous wealth iived to the age of sixty wittinut marrying; then he proposed to a beautiful, brilliant young girl, who belonged to a large but poor family. She hesitated long before accepting him; his habits, morals, person, mere all obnoxious to her, for she was a girl of pure, refined tastes. But to be the wife of a millionaire, to go to Europe, to reign like a queen in the city where she had lived on an income of a servant—these were temptations too strong for her, as they are for too many American women. She married him without a particle of love or respect; sold herself as ab solutely for money as ever slave was sold. Her husband paid for his purchase. Before the marriage he built a magnificent dwelling; architecture, sculpture, painting, gave of their best to make it tit for a home of ar<>yal lady; there was a Chinese ro...

The Conquest of the Mule. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

The Conquest of the Mule. The western pack-mule is small, i sinewy, and, like old Joey Bagstock, " tough, sir, tough ! but de-e-vlish sly 1" Most of them are bred from Indian ponies and are born on the open plains. Having previously been lassoed and branded, when three years old they are driven (or inveigled) into a corral and exhibited for sale as bronchos. An untamed horse is a model of gentleness beside them. Sometimes they are acoustomed at once to the saddle by one of those wonderful riders who can stick on the back of anything that runs, and more rarely they are broken to harness: bnt ordinarily their backs are trained to bear the pack, which is generally the only practicable method of transporting freight through these rugged mountains. The first time the pack-saddles are put on, the excitement may be imagined. The green mule, strong in his youth, having been adroitly " roped " or lassoed, is led out into an open space, stepping timidly, Wut, not seeing any cause for alarm, q...

He lavished money freely in adorning and making it an attractive summer residence, A curious story is told of an eminent Scottish lawyer, who ran away from Edinburgh iv youth to seek his fortune iv London. He was born and passed his boyhood ia a gloomy house in one of the narrow, dark lanes of Edinburgh, called Mint Blow Lane. The family were poor, and he suffered many hardships in childhood.

The Turret Spider. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

The Turret Spider. It belongs to the genus Tarantula, and is as large as.the tiger, but quite different in color. The male is a soft velvety blaok, while the female is gray-ish-brown, or like faded velvet. She has a light gray spot on top of the thorax, aud on the abdomen are threo dark brown longitudinal stripes alternating with light gray. In young specimens these markings are quite distinct, but in old one* the colors blend somewhat. The two sexes do not differ in size, the male being fully as large as the female. The body is a little more than an inch in length, and the legs are large and long, which gives it quite a formidable appearance, but it is perfectly harmless. I have provisionally named it Tarantula tarricula, reserving a further deter., m The name was suggested from its manner of building. It digo a burrow in the earth six or seven inches io depth, but the upper part of its domicile is entirely unlike that of the tiger-spider. Tnis species builds a little round tower a...

Incident in the Life of Senator Chandler. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

Incident in the Life of Senator Chandler. Senator Zichanau Chandler was a man whose independent manners and roughness of language, under the irritations and public excitements of his later life, led many, perhaps, to judge him uncharitably—though all confessed his incorruptible integrity. Receutly, at a meeting of tbe Youug Men's Christian Association of Maucheßter, N. H., Rev. Dr. C. W. Wallace related an instance illustrating his gentler qualities. Loug ago he was called upon to part with a brother who had studied for the ministry, who went down by the hand of consumption before he reached the pulpit. A little while after, a second brother entered the same profession, but the same disease came to him, and he was obliged to leave for Cuba in hopes of recovery, but instead of recovery, death came, and on its near approach, he sent for his brother Zachariah to close his eyes. He went, and was with him at his death. In that country there was no opportunity of holding a Protestant buri...

Encounter With Indians. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

Encounter With Indians. A sharp Indian tight, one of the most closely contested that ever took place in Texas, was fought on the 27tk of January, 1851. Lieutenant Ed. Burleson, with a detachment of oavalry, was on his way from Man Antonio to Camp Los Ojuelos. When near the Nueces River, he saw three Comanohe Indians on horsebaok. Taking eight men, and ordering the rest of the party to keep the road and move on, he pursued them. After running for two or three miles, the Indians came up with eleven of their band on foot, and prepared for battle. Burleson's men, who were old Texas rangers, moved up to within fifty or sixty yards of the Comanohe line, and opened the fight. By some mistake they dismounted. The Indians oharged, and a terrible hand-to-hand fight ensued. Shots were fired at the distance of a foot or two. The field was an open prairie, on which there was not a bush for cover. It was a trial ef strength, skill and courage. The rangers fought behind their horses, shooting unde...

A California Gold Story. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

A California Gold Story. The most singular manner of being struok with a fortune iv prospeoting occurred above Spring Gulch, recently. Mr. Snow, late of San Francisco, now prospecting in the vioinity of Sonora for other parti?*, was out on a quartz hunt with Dr. Drake, of San Francisco. Tuey were returning heme, it being stormy, when Snow (who was riding a horse belonging to John Neale, of the Spring Gulch Mine along the trail), was suddenly missed by his companion. Snow's horse had slipped off the bluff, md dewn he went at an angle of 45 degrees, horse, rider and rifle (whioh he gripped firmly in his ban Ij, rolling over and over in the snow, until he brought up against a mass of stone standing up out of the snow, its top covered with moss. He was not hart, as the cold, soft oushion had saved hie bones from the hard ground beneath. Scrambling up against the rook, he uoticed that it was a quartz lode, aud that where the horse bad accidentally kicked off the moss something glittered....

Our farmers have this wiuter had an excellent opportunity of witnessing tin- advantages of the system of sum-mer-fallowing, which is now being adopted so generally throughout this seclion. Though the early part of the j season was unusually favorable, aud the crop was put iv, in excellent shape, the long stretch of cold weather affect- I rd it most severely, all growth being stopped, for weeks on some fields, while all winter-plowed grain is very backward. On the summer fallow, however j the told weather seeras to have had but little effect. It has grown rapidly, all wiuter, while other graiu was standing still, and is now luxuriant and flourishing, while the wintersowed has scarcely covered the ground, and but just beginning to grow with real life and vigor, The copious rain of the past week have quite set at rest all doubts which nuiy heretofore have been held, regarding the certainty of a full crop iv this Valley' the present season.

Cracked Wheat and Smut. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

Cracked Wheat and Smut. D. A. L. Thk origin of smut in wheat is from Cl ueked grams vhich have vitality enough !.» germinate and grow, but not enough to mature lUe grain. WHEAT tHSESHED ON TUF. GROUND By the tramping of borsei, and sown without the application of any preparation to it, does not produce smut. Wheat that falls lo the ground in the field and makes a volunteer crop does not produce smut. Such wheat, lUe any other, may blast; that is, for the want of a perfect fructification, a black substance is found in the place of the grain, which Mows away before harvest, but the real smut remains id its "sack'' till after threshiug. Probably the cause of blasting is high wiuds during the time the growing , grain is in blossom. PREVENTING SMCT.

THE CRACKING OF WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 April 1880

THE CRACKING OF WHEAT By threshing machines can and should be avoided. If the cylinder and concave teeth are adjusted so as to pass at a proper distance, and the grate bars made smooth ami free from angles, and the speed kept down so that the grain is not hurled as shot lrom a gun against the grate bars, the grain would come out in perfect condition for seed. Unfortunately, steam supplies the power, and job work the temptation to make one-twelfth of the crop unfit for that purpose.
