Weaning Lambs. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
Weaning Lambs. In a series of articles on Sheep Husbandry, published lately in the Colorado Farmer, we find the following hints on weaniDg lambs: About ninety days is a proper time for the lambs to run with their mothers, and when a flock is large enough to justify a driver of the flock, the Limbs that are dropped the first threo weeks can be put in one flock, and the weaning can be done at two times without any injury to the younger lambs. Some flock-mas-ters have adopted the erroneous and injurious practice of not weaning, or rather dopending upon tho mother to wean the lamb. This practice will not hurt the lamb, but will keep the mother poor, and she will be likely to fail to have a lamb the coming season,or if she does she will be so weak that gteat risk will be run in wintering her. The better plan is to wean the lamb at about three months of age, and if any are small then give them extra attention in the fall and early winter, and but little risk will be run in wintering them....
Home Mattess. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
Home Mattess. Poultice.—Cranberries pounded fine in the raw state are excellent as a poultice to allay inflammation of the skin. They are said to bo speoially adapted for this purpose in cases of erysipelas. Soot-water, applied in strong or weak solution, according to tho vigor and need of plants, has the effect of dispelling all worms from the soil, and imparting a deep-green, healthy color to the foliage. Peanut Candy.—Prepare tho meats by removing the thin reddish skin in which they are enveloped, and fill a tin tray to the depth of about an inch. Pour over this the hot candy, stirring the meats that each one may be covered. A little less candy should be used than will suffioe to entirely cover tho mass of meats, though each separate one should be coated, the object being to use jnst enough of tho candy to cause the meats to adhere firmly to each other, thus forming a large cake, which when nearly cold maybe divided ins; tares or bars with a sharp knife. Aim nds, deprived of thei...

THE FRIEDLANDER FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
THE FRIEDLANDER FAILURE. F. r the past twenty year?, a com- j f.inutionof capitalists, at the head of| which was Isaac Friedlander, has; ruled the farmers of this coast with a rod of irou. Aiming only at its own aggrandizement, this body has, with . its heel upon the neck of the agriculturist, framed in power year by year. The method o( procedure adopted by this combination, has been as fidlows : To secure, early in each season, the surplus coin of the country banks throughout the State. As it was not removed from the bank vaults, no security needed to be given. When the fanner applied for a loan, whereby to move his crop, not a dollar could he obtain. Thus he was completely at the mercy of a mauto whom the very word was a stranger. Either he must pay Lsaac Friedlander ah outrageous rate of interest for the use of money, or sell his wheat to Isaac Friedlander, at any price which that gentleman might feel inclined to offer. Aud one inav rest assured that this was not aoovojrnarket ra...
IS BISMARCK REALLY A GREAT MAN? [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
IS BISMARCK REALLY A GREAT MAN? In some things, yes , in others, no, no. His policy has becu shrewd enough for the present aggrandisement of Prussia. And so far he has been a great success. But he has prepared a d.trk future for his country, which even now appears too stormy for his grasp. When Napoleon was at his feet, had he stopped and said to the people of France, " I have no war with you. 'People of France, do as you please. Make an houorable peace, aud set tip what government you please," he would have made France his friend, and might have sat down in peace. But he must go to Paris. He must have Alsace aud Loraine, and therefore, for a century to come, Germany must face an open fin?, ever to spriDg at her throat. Then he must have an Empire, the last to come, the first to crumble iuto a Republic, perhaps. These two missteps prove him only a time server, a man of the day, and not a reader of the future. This empire is a rope of sand, which must go to pieces without a liberal c...
A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. President Huyus haa recognized Governor Hampton of South Carolina, and he haa gone home to take charge of the State. Democrat* nay, M Hurrah for Hayes.'* Some Republicans are inclined to criticize thi* policy severely, while others accept it as the very essence of statesmanship. These last say, M What better could he do? He has given Wade Hampton the great Southern problem to solve." South Carolina has the most poor negroes of any state in the Union, aud the most rantankerous and bigoted and disloyal white e'ement in America. Wade Hampton says he can and will sustain a republican form of government, obey the Constitution of the t'nited State?, protect the colored peo- j pie, reconcile white and black, and secure peace, law. order and prosperity And the President has said, l " Go aud do it. M Now, one of two things will happen. Either Wade, will do these things, or he will n it. If he does, the southern problem is *olved. All other southern states will adopt ...

A mere hoax, an advertisement for a thousand laborers in San Francisco, brought out two thousand men, eager for work. They met 'ast Friday oa Montgomery street, and marched to the Mayor's office. The excitement was intense. Some thought they were the Caucasians marching against Chinatown.

WHAT WE SAW AT THE CENTENNIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
WHAT WE SAW AT THE CENTENNIAL. No. 10. GREAT BRITAIN —CONCLUDED. What iron and coal have done for them can only be appreciated when we remember that British iron, steel, tools and machinery for years were leading factors, not only for our own advancing civilization, but of the whole growing world. They were not content to use their own iron alone, but importing the raw ore at a merely nominal price. the\ made it into iron and steel, and giving employment to thousands of hands, fabricated it into every form from the railroad rail to the needle, and with these bought the gold of the world; and at our Exposition they showed their implements and machines for mining, breaking and hoisting ores of all kinds, lamps, safes for the miner's use, even where the fire-damp fiend seeks for victims, furnaces for refining and purifying the metal, and anvils, steam hammers, punches and drills, dies, vices and shears, and the machinery for forging bolts and cutting screws, with their product.

COUNTY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
COUNTY NEWS. Tlie "village smithy" at Sunol has changed hands. San Leandro is pining for a building association. Brooklyn's fire engine, house, horses, etc., cost $13,025. Haywards is bragging of a field of barley averaging 4 1/2 feet in height. Tlie old county buildings at San Leandro have been converted into a tenement house. Dr. Thrasher, of San Leandro, was severely gored by a bull last week. He is convalescing. There are now 79 patients in the County Infirmary, against 83 at the beginning of last month. Fields of barley in full head, and standing three feet in height, are not unfrequent near Dublin. The Oakland "Daily Transcript" has recently been enlarged, by the addition of four columns. It is thought that the Dembarton narrow gauge railroad will be pushed through immediately. All the early, and much of the late grain about Sunol is badly affected by the rust. Cattle will not eat it, and it will therefore be unfit even for hay. It is rumored that Theodore Le Roy has disposed ...
AROUND OUR VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 11 April 1877
AROUND OUR VALLEY. Crop* in this Valley do not, as a rule, to speak candidly, look as well as they did three week* since. But thi* rule has numerous exceptions. In some places the prospects never looked better. In others, nothing will be raised. From the Inman sch'vd boast to Dublin, and about that place and Pleasanton, a good crop is asHired, without further rain*. Throughout the extreme north and northeast portions of the Vslley, and among the foothills about Brushy Peak, the grain look* fresh and green, and will make a half crop, at least. To the east near the hill*, no *igns of drying up are visible. Between tlie Arroyo* Mocho and Valle, some very fine fields are also to be found. The grain on the gravel about the town will probably yield something lea* than half a crop. But sandwich**! between the section* we have mentiom d, especially in the case of early sowed grain on adobe, are many places where nothing but feed will be produced. And in many part* of the foot hills, even th...
