The Cost of Visiting Europe. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

The Cost of Visiting Europe. One ef the most interesting; and im portant problems to those who intend or desire to go abroad, is, " How mnch will it cost?" Many, perhaps, wonld otherwise visit Europe, who, with limited means, hesitate to do so because they have no way of estimating the expense. It is hard even in guide-books to get a dear idea of this ; and it is to satisfy those who wish to have definite information on the subject, that the following facts are given : Of course, mauy things come in to vary the cost of visiting Europe. It depends on the length of the proposed trip, whether the traveler is a geL tieman or a lady, what the tastes and habits of the traveler are, and what taot he or she has. We will suppose that the traveler is a gentleman of moderate means, who wishes to go at once reasonably and comfortably, and who proposes to make, say, a three months' trip. In this period he can visit England, the Bhine, Switzerland, North Italy, and—on his homeward journey—France....

How the New York Firemen Live. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

How the New York Firemen Live. Tbe bunk room of an engine house is an ordinary bare floored room, containing many iron cots, and a wardrobe behind each cot. In No. 7's house the walls are as bare as the flo*r ; but both are kept scrupulously clean. The firemen may be said to listen in their sleep. They sleep in their red shirts and under olothing ; their big rubber boots stand by the side of the beds, with the trousers fitted over them, and when the gong sounds, the trained men wake, jump from their beds, and almost mechanically slip their fact into the boots, pull up their trousers, fasten them, and rush down the stairs. Each man's coat and hat is in its place ou the engine or tender, and while the horses dash along the busy streets, the firemen finish dressing. Their speed in the dajtime will seem almost as wonderful when it is remembered that they are all apt to be at work or at play in remote parts of the building. The alarm is rung while one man is washing windows upstairs, ano...

What is Gossip? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

What is Gossip? We are often asked, "What is gossip?" We answer, in a general way, that it ia talking of persons rather than of things. Nothing shows the panoity of ideas more than this talking about the affairs of your neighbors. It is not only malicious people who originate scandal; it is narrow-minded people, ignorant people, stupid people. Persons of culture and intelligence are not so hard run for topics of converse* tion. i hey can usually find something to say about art, literature, fashion or society. The moment people begin to talk of their neighbors—of persons rather than of things, they are apt to degenerate into scandal; for where one speaks of the virtues of an acquaintance, A dozen expatiate on his or her shortcomings. And this brings us to speak of real culture, or what we consider to be such, at least. A cultivated person, in the highest sense of the term, is not merely one who can talk of books, pictures, and ether elevated subjects of human interest. To be thorough...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

The Board of Supervisors will receive testimony, next Monday, regarding ihe necessity for the construction of a new bridge across the Sau Ramon creek, on the road leading from Livermore to Dublin. Tlie old bridge has fallen into a very dilapidated condition, aud judged by a cursory examination, would Mem to be liable to collapse under the first heavily laden team which attempted the crossing. The witnesses summoned will, no doubt, be able to convince the Board of the necessity for a new structure. Every family in thi.~ place, that owns, rents, or has in ftfl po--e-sion ■ piece ol land, even though it be no more than a rod square, should make a vegetable garden.

A Wasteful Interest Paid By Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

A Wasteful Interest Paid By Farmers. Tliero is no disputing the fact that any farm implement, be it wagon, plow, harrow, reaper, rake, or what uot, if left exposed to sun or raiu fur ten years, will be practically good for nolhiug. "Wo might say in five years, but if any choose to cavil at flyo f we will say ten. This is ten per cent, per annum. At v cost of less than one per cent, these tools CJtQ always. be kept housed, or under cover of some kind, even if but rough boards, that will .shut out sun aud rain. Because we do not see tlie silent, slow, but steady waste, we arc apt to forget that it is ever going on. It is unnecessary to suggest the k, aj „ plication" oi this short sermon. Jiiuc per cent, interest saved is uot to be despised, even if better times are at hand.—Ex.

The Putiah Falls. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 15 April 1880

The Putiah Falls. The mountain ranges to the southwest of our neighboring hamict of Dublin abound with many wild and picturesque spots, of the existence ot which, so near our very doors, scarce one-twentieth of our people arc aware. Deep, wooded canyons, sdowu the beds of which little streamlets leap noisily from rock to rock, babble mcdodiously over the pebbles, or lie in quietude in deep, shady pools, indent the high ridges, ou every hand, each possessing its own charm of scene. Among the prettiest of these narrow mountain canyons is that known as the •■Pmiah," which indents tbe outer and lowei ridge about a mile south of Dublin. Minor ruvines open lrom the main canyon, each yielding its tiny rivulet, to swell Ihe volume of the larger stream, which finds it way by devious windings to the willowcovered Boise, in tiie valley below. The stream is scarcely three miles in length, falling, iv this short distance, over six hundred feet. The descent is necessarily very great, several of t...
