John Conroy's Luck. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

John Conroy's Luck. In the year 18I I J, John Conroy, who had been admitted to the bar in the State of Massachusetts, fitiding that his native town was pretty well stocked with lawyers, made np his mind that he would leave his home and seek his fortune in the South. He was a young man of good talents and great industry, but, being poor, had not the means to sustain himself till he could acquire a reputation in the profession'that would yield him a requisite income. He therefore gathered his little store of money, and set out one cold winter day to seek some place to locate on the Mississippi river. At least, such was his intention. The most trifling circumstance, he remarked, often turns one's destiny fur good or evil. I had spent some little time in most of the towns along the Mississippi, and finding nothing that seemed to justify a young lawyer of Northern birth in living there, 1 finally arrived at Columbus, Tennessee, just eight months after I had left my homo. It was here I me...

Brought to Time. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Brought to Time. There is no foolishness about some of the fathers of Dubuque cnunty, lowa, who have marriageable daughters, and they know how to precipitate business when tho fruit is ripe for plucking and hangs, wasting its sweetness, when it should bo plucked. Matters wore brought to a climax with a rush at a certain farmer's residence in Vernon township, recently. A young tiller of the soil had for months been paying most assiduous attentions to one of his daughters, but ho was such a bashful, modest chap, never having been much in the company of fHr l except this one, that he had never been able to raise his courage sufficiently high to pap the question. He hail gone to the house in which the lady lived, at least on twenty different occasions, resolved to know his fate, but when ushered into the presence of the fair one, in whose keeping he J|ad placed his heart, his courage .wouhrTnvariably "go back" on him, and he would return to his lonely room in greater suspense than befor...

Hired Men. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Hired Men. YVlien a farmer hires men to help him about the farm, he is unwise if he treats them badly in any way, as he needs their services quite as much as they need their wages. When we hear farmers complain of their hired help as disrespectful, dishonest, shirking, and teaching others to snirk, we can but think that the fault is not all on one side. There is much truth in the old proverb, " Like master, like man." Speak to your hired man as you speak to a dog, and if he does not sometimes growl he is above the average of humanity. Pinching him in his food is worse than screwing down wages. We must not expect full work on an empty stomach. One of these scrimping farmers once gave his hired men the sonpboue for his dinner, and, hoping to make it relish, remarked: " The nearer the bone the sweeter the meat." "It may be so, sir," said one of the men, " but were you in our place, you would be more impressed with the thought, the nearer the bone the scarcer the meat." There can be no ...

fs it Right? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

fs it Right? My home," said a Manchester gentleman "is situated in the suburbs of this great commercial city. I love my home, and desire to do all in my power to surround my family with all the enjoyment of life, and to screen them as far as possible, by God's blessings, from all its evil associations. At the back of my honse is a beautiful garden in which I delight to spend many of mv spare hours. Some time ago the fumes from the chimney of the chemical works about half a mile from my house began to injure the bloom and foliage of my plants and trees. I consulted my lawyer, and he assured me that the law of the land was so strict on such matters, that he had no question whatever of being able to stop the 1 nuisance.' He applied to the court of chancery for an injunction, and after hearing evidence from professional analysts on the question, the judge speedily decided in my favor, and the nuisance was speedily removed. But is the law of England equally just with regard to other and ...

Training of the Young. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Training of the Young. There is a bent, a trend, a tendency in the nature of children, which should be taken into account in the culture of their minds and the choice of a pursuit in life. {Sometimes it should bo discouraged, for it does not always point to usefulness, honor and happiness. Just as the twig, etc. And in early years, even a bad tendency may be repressed or eradicated, which, left unchecked, will become a resistless flood, an ungovernable passion, a fatal power. But this natural force, inclination or propensity, when rightly guided, will be clear gain in the development of character, making a grand success. It is better in the training of the young to rely more on cautious encouragement, than rough reproof and constant censure or fault-finding. The race is weary enough, and the toil up hill is hard enough, to justify all the help that parent and teacher can afford. Repression and scolding only irritate the soul, without adding to its power. "Often the brain is confused...

Oh! Lu, How is Yonr Mother? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Oh! Lu, How is Yonr Mother? Once upon a time I had two young lady acquaintances, whom I met out in company, and I admired them extremely. Soon after I called informally upon them, with a number of friends, and was again charmed by their wit and brilliancy. Th.y returned my call very soon, and I received them alone. I made myself as agreeable as possible, and thought how pleasant they were, when, suddenly the truth dawned upon me—l was doing all the talking. I paused, looked at the elder, and awaited a witty remark, on my long dissertation. Sbe sweetly returned my gaze, and said so prettily, " Oh, yesl" It did not occur to me then that it did not apply, she was so very pretty. A pause ensued. I broached a topic which I thought possessed general interost, but —all! me, another silence more unendurable than the first. The younger broke the stillness by saying, enthusiastically, M Isn't thiß weather perfectly lovely?" "Yes," I answered, "this last week has been very fine." Bat it Hashed...

Some Curious Facts About the Memory. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Some Curious Facts About the Memory. M. Delauney has made a communication to the Society de Biologic respecting memory as studied under the various biological conditions. The inferior races of mankind, snch as negroes, the Chinese, etc., have more memory than those of a higher type of civilization. Primitive races which were unacquainted with the art of writing bad wonderful memories, and were for ages in the habit of handing down from one generation to another hymns as voluminous as the Bible. Prompters and professors of declamation know that women have more memory than men. French women will learn a foreign language quieter than their husbands. Yonths have more memory than adults. It is well developed in children, attains its maximum about the 14th or 15th year, and then decreases. Feeble individuals of a lymphatic temperament have more memory than the strong. Students who obtain the prize for memory and recitation chiefly belong to the former class. Parisian students have also le...

Verona. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 8 July 1880

Verona. At tho foul of the Alpa, who3e buqwj tops rise prompt from a Lombard plain, sits Verona and washes her feet in the swift, 000 l waters of the Adige ! Here "Juliet " lived, and in a narrow street —quick with modern life— is shown the Capulet House, a lofty, narrow front, pierced by an arched portal reaching loan inner court, round which the mansion rests. Over the arch of the inner portal is shown a carved cap on marble, the symbol of the family. Shops in the front —stables and outhouses in the courts, and the poor, like rats, infest the upper rooms. Yet we may believe that " Juliet " once wn a time lived there, and that may be those lofty marble brackets — up there—upheld the balcony (now gone) to which glad Komeo climbed to reach his bride's arms. Let us think so; and invest the place with the spirit of its past, and people it with its two heroes- its lovers ! Of all sweet stories what is sweeter than that of lovers? Of all sad histories what compares to that of these fond,...

Dancing was begun at 11 o'clock a. m., and continued till 1:30, when the celebrating exercises of the day were opened by an overture by Broueon's Band, of San Jose.
