The Publishes Claims Sustained United States Court of Claims Tho Publishers cf Webster’s International Dictionary allege that it “is, in fact, the popular Unahrhlged thoroughly; re-edited in every detail, and vastlyenriched In every port, with the purpose of adapting it to meet the larger and severer requirements of another generation.” Wo are of the opinion allegation most clearly and accurately describes tho •work that tins been accomplished and the ■esulttlmthas been reached.

Quincy Adams Sawyer Is Well Received [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 January 1908
Quincy Adams Sawyer Is Well Received The New England play entitled “Quincy Adams Sawyer” was produced at the opera house on Tuesday evening to a fair - sized audience, and to which it gave general satisfaction. The company was composed of a fine body of players, and all seemed to have their parts well in hand. The title roll enacted by Carl Hewitt was very good. He is a fine looking young man, with a fascinating manner, and carried the story of the play to a satisfactory conclusion. The leading lady was excellent in the difficult part of a blind girl. Rich comedy was famished by several of the characters, among the foremost being Hiram, Bamauthy Green and Deacon Mason. A couple of very unsatisfactory plays which preceded the one on Tuesday evening was' probably the cause of the poor attendance.

Funds Being Raised To Keep Evergreen Cemetery Beautiful [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 January 1908
Funds Being Raised To Keep Evergreen Cemetery Beautiful One of the most commendable acts ever undertaken in Lompoc is that which originated with John C. Lind, one of our most .sterling citizens. He conceived a plan, and has all but finished j carrying it to a successful conclu- ! sion, whereby Evergreen cemeI tery is to be put in first-class condition and steadily cared for during 1908 and in succeeding years by the same method. It is nothing more nor less than the levying of a small assessment upon lot owners in the proportion of $5 for a whole lot and $3 for a half. After numerous schemes have been tried, none of them with any degree of success, this proposition Was pot squarely up to lot-owners by Mr. Lind and with such fairness was it received and considered that he has already secured over $3OO of the $450 he expects to raise. There were no refusals, no objections, no arguments. All seemed to giasp the justness of the request at once, and immediately signed for their re spectiv...

City Trustees In Regular Session [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 January 1908
City Trustees In Regular Session The city council met in regular session on Monday evening, a gieater portion of the time being taken up in the discussion of street improvements. The city clerk’s report, as published in last week’s Journal, showed that nearly four thousand dollars had been expended on the streets in 1907, and another large appropriation will be made for this year’s expenditures. The matter of planting trees along the main thoroughfares was taken up, but nothing was definitely acted upon. , Owners of property along G street from the Arthnr stables to the railroad track, petitioned for a cement sidewalk, but it was found necessary in this particular instance that before request could be granted, certain changes would have to be made in (he present sidewalk ordinance, which the city attorney was instructed to attend to. A number of electric street lights were ordered iu accordance with petitions.

Gratuitous Profanity [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 January 1908
Gratuitous Profanity The Canadian Churchman of Toronto has the following to say on “purposeless profanity” in Canada and the United States: “You hear men ripping out horrible oaths, and calling blood curdling maledictions down upon the heads of others in perfectly cold blood, and in their natural tone of voice as if they were making a remark upon the weather. “Profanity is every where in evidence where men congregate. Walk down the street of almost buy of; our villages aud country towns of an evening, sit for half an hour in a railway smoking car, listen to the conversation that goes on among gangs of workingmen, and your ears sooner or later in nine hundred aud ninety times out of a thousand will be assailed with 'chunks of profanity,’ flung about nearly always in apparent perfect good humor, and absolutely gratuitously and aimlessly. Little wonder then is it that our boys catch on to the habit aud follow suit. “The style of America’s profanity is peculiarly offensive. It has a cha...
