Every country journal In Ala meda County stands squarely with the Board of Sapervisors, in it.recent action in confirming the old Supervisor Districts. As threshing progresses, the result becomes daily more gratifying, nearly all grain yielding heavier than had been expected. The general verdict is that the crop is the heaviest ever raised in the Valley, while the grain is generally plumper, and of better quality, than for many years. Dr. Tanner, the physician who is indulging in a forty-days starving match, against Death, enters upon the thirty ninth day of his self-imposed task today. He is' vety weak, but in good spirits, and confident of success. He is greatly troubled with vomiting, but at midnight (Wednesday) was sleeping quietly.

* * , and Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 5 August 1880

* * , and Irrigation. f I. It is quHe a common remark to bear in regard to certaiii lands in this county that "the land is good enough hut there is no water for them." If they mean now, at this precise moment, we might agree with them, hut if they mean next year or year after or future time we shall dissent, in toto. We think it is suseeptihle of proof that rain?enough falls within the area of this valley to irrigate every foot of land we have from mountains to mountains. The n. edful thing to do'is to save what now runs to waste* This i.-< easily dose hy means of n i r\<>h's. On every mountainl side there are countless ravines which can cheaply be converted into forage reservoirs.

Oakland"* Tragedy [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 5 August 1880

Oakland"* Tragedy The killing of Dr. Lefevre, an Oakland dentist, by E. F. Schroeder, a note-teller in the London and San Francisco bank, has caused much excitement in Oakland, and a great deal of comment, by the press of tiie entire country, during the past week. This was occasioned, partially, by the position held in society by the parties concerned therein, but more directly, by the sp ri of un deaiine s pervad'ng th whole affair. Murders have hecome so frequent nowadays, and the public taste so depraved,that even the bl< todiest tragedy,unless there be connected with it something savoring of the gutter of scandal, receives hut a hasty, llippant comment, and is dismissed from the public mind. The Lefevre murder, robbed of all its mock sentimentality, is but another link in the apparently endless chain of b p'y homicides for which this State has achieved an inglorious notoriety. Shooting men down in cold blood has now become so common, and punishment for the offence so ...

W. S. Hancock. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 5 August 1880

W. S. Hancock. Some time since we published a short biographical sketch of Gen. Garfield. We now do the same for the Democratic candidate,—Ed. Winfield Scott Hancock, Democratic nominee for President, was born in Montgomery Co. Penn., in 1824; he is therefore in his 57th year. His partizans claim that he is a direct descendant of that grand old led. The-immortal patriot John Hancock. His name was brought before Democratic conventions for "nomination for the Presidency in '68, '72, '76, and for the fourth time in the late Convention, when as is well known, he was nominated on the second ballot amid considerable enthusiasm. Like his opponent, he was to a considerable extent a dark horse, though by no means, unknown, for the annals of the Army of the Potomac would be incomplete without the name of Hancock. Hancock's whole career is that of of a sohlier,appointed to West Point in 1840, graduating in 1814, he served with distinction in the Mexican War, and was promoted for bravery. Serve...

TALK OF THE FISHWIFE AND ITS SAD FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 5 August 1880

TALK OF THE FISHWIFE AND ITS SAD FATE. It is a black day. Hear the Rain how he pours, and the Hail, how he rattles, and see the Snow, how he drifts along, and oh the Mud, how deep he is? Ah the poor Fishwife, it is stuck fast in the Mire; it has dropped its Basket of Fishes; and its Hands have been cut by the Scales as it siezed some of the falling Creatures; and one Scale has even got into its Eve, and it cannot get her out. It opens its Mouth to cry for help; but if any Sound comes out of him, alas he is drowned by the raging of the Storm. And now a Tomcat has got one of the Fishes and she will surely escape with him. No, she bites off a Fin, she holds her in her Mouth. AVill she swallow her? No, the Fislp wiL's brave Mother-Dog deserts his Puppies and rescues the Fin, — Which he eats himself, as his Howard. O, horror, the Lightning has struck the Fishbasket; he eats him on Fire, See the Flame, how she licks the doomed Utensil with her red and angry Tongue; Now she attacks the hel...

Altamont Anograms. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 5 August 1880

Altamont Anograms. Nothing exciting hereabouts. Heading is nearly completed, and the shrill whistle of 'ye steam engine," will be beard ere long, A. Ismert, formerly of Livermore Valley, has been visiting in this section this week. Several of our farmers have invested In 'self binders" this season, and they speak very highly in their favor. A number of our people are prophesying the utter annihilation of the header from this section. A young man from the rural of San Francisco, has been in this section sketching, visiting, hunting rattlesnakes, or—well, we know n«#t which, but from the quality of his find, we judge that he was not bit by bis snakesbip.

La-t year, the "Mutuals" defeated some of the best professional clubs of S;n Francisco, hence our boys feel highly elated over tLeir victory. The Mutuals are a strong nine throughout, their battery, Cleveuger and W. Hobson, being especially good. The game was very one sided up to the seventh inning, the Liver* mores batting heavily and fielding finely up till then, when a lost ball let in four runs, and then tne Mutuala, assisted by some gross errors by the Livermoreans, scored two more. The Livermores were whitewashed the next inning. Then the Mutuals made three runs iv the eighth in* n >ug, by wild throwing on tbe part of the Livermores, The score then stood 12 to 11, in favor of Livermore, and when the Mutuals went in on their last inning, all was excitement, they having oue to tie aud two to win; but Howe was too much ...
