The Bard Asylum Case. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
The Bard Asylum Case. A case of considerable iuterest, bearing upon the taxation of the property of charitable institutions, has recently been decided by tho Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Twenty years ago an Episcopalian woman named Burd bequeathed a large sum of money for the establishment of an orphan asylum in Philadelphia, to be called by her name. The bequest, which was duly executed, provided, first, for the reception of white orphan girls between the ages of four and eight years, who have been baptized in the Protestant Episcopal Church of Philadelphia; socond, of tho same class of girls living in tho State of Pennsylvania; third, of all other white orphan girls of legitimate birth and of the prescribed age, except that in every case the orphan children of Protestant Episcopal clergymen should have the preference. The will further directed that there should be a chapel in the asylum building, in which the form of worship of the Episcopal Church, and no other, should be obser...
Farmers as Poulterers. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
Farmers as Poulterers. It is n singular fact that so few of our American farmers are inclined to give any, or at best but a small share, of their attention to the raising of good poultry. The mode adopted by farmers, generally speaking, to produce chickens is not the most profitable to them, and is rarely the right way to manage for the welfare of their fowl stock. Hens are kept, if at all, in but small numbers. They are usually permitted to prowl about the farmer's place uneared for and unnoticed. They lay their eggs anywhere aud nowhere. When they want to set they steal their nests ia some out-of-the-way corner, and squat upon twice as many eggs as they hatch. When the hen leaves tho nest with her chicks she drags them through the wet grass home, and, as the careless farmer has no fitting accommodations for them, he " can't bo bothered with chickens," it is " too much trouble to look after these small things," "there's no money in hens," he contends, and he lets them run. They die...
Confined Chickens. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
Confined Chickens. On some farms the crops raised are of such kinds that they cannot bo injured by the poultry, which, consequently, have a wide range. There are, however, many poultry raisers who are obliged to confine their fowls in a run of greater or less size, and who are not careful enough to provide amusement for them. A few tomato plants set in one corner of the yard, protected with lath until the fruit begins to ripen, and then throw open to the chickens, will give them healthy, cheap food, and what is almost as necessary, exercise. The melon rinds and seeds, and an occasional head of cabbage, will be enjoyed. It is an excellent plan to plough up tho yard a couplo of times in the course of the summer. It brings worms and bugs of various kinds to the surface and makes a good scratching place. If sown with oats and corn the young plants will be eateu. Any butcher will sell a large basket full of bones and spoiled meat for a very small sum, and often he will be glad to give th...
That Was Too Much. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
That Was Too Much. The tenant of a honso on Crawford street who was bebind*on his rent was some days siuce ordered to vacate, ar 1 then he put his imagination »t work bu invent excuses to remain in the house. He first had Ids wife fall sick, and thereby got iv a week. Then he was taken with the chills, aud got iv four days more. Then he got two days in which to hunt another house, and yesterday when an officer went there for the key he found tho man dying. At least his wife said such was the case, and she acted like one greatly distressed in mind. "This is very sudden," rem irked the non plussed officer. "Very suddou, sir. Ho had just said to me thut we would begin moving after dinner, when he dropped to the floor and he has been lying in a stupor 9ver since. The doctor says he may never rally again." "Can I see him?" "Oh, yes, but please don't speak above a whisper." •She led the way to the bedroom. There lay the unconscious man, but somehow he didn't look as a sick man should, and...
No Fun in Heing a Princess. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
No Fun in Heing a Princess. The position of the Princess of Wales i i too exalted to permit of much so cial enjoyment, yet has not the splendid potentialities of reigning royalty. Tho Princess, too, is peculiarly unostentatious, and evidently finds the magnificent loneliness of her position an actual trial. To be young and beautiful, and idolized, and yet to be shut out from most forms of social amusement, can bo by no means delightful. Yet, there are, of course, very few houses, even among those of the highest nobility, to which the Princess of Wales can go as an invited gueet. And, wheu she does go, an awful state hedges her around. She is passionately fond of dancing, yet no gertleman can ask her to dance. She it is who signals out the pern&amp;aatjp whom she desires as a partner, and, when she stands up to dance, all other dancers must sit down. After circling around the room some half dozen times, she pauses and sits down to rest, and then the remainder of the waltzers ...
Touching the Hat, [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 22 July 1880
Touching the Hat, The conquered man, prostrate before his conqueror, and becoming himself a possession, simultaneously loses possession of whatever thing he has about him; and, therefore, surrendering his weapon, he also yields up, if the viator demands it, whatever part of his dress is worth taking. Hence the nakedness, partial or complete, of the captive, becomes additional evidence of his subjugation. In Abyssinia, inferiors bare their bodies down to the girdle in presence of superiors; but to equals the corner of the cloth is removed only for a time. The like occurs in Polynesia. The Tahitians uncover the body as low as the waist in the presence of the king; and in the Society Isles generally the lower ranks of people, by way of respect, strip off their upper garment iv the presence of their principal chiefs. Evidently, uncoveriug the head has the same original meaning. Even in certain European usages the relation between the two has been recognized, as by Ford, who remarks that...
