largest Plant in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 5 January 1900
Largest Plant in the World. It is not tho earth but the sea that has produced the largest plant in the world. That distinction is held by a gigantic seaweed, known as the nereocytis, which frequently . grows to a height of more than 300 feet. The stem of the plant is as strong as an ordinary rope, and large quantities of it are dried and used as rope by the inhabitants of the South Sea Islands, where the curious vegetable ropes are found. This seaweed usually grows to a depth of from 200 to 300 feet. As soon as the plant takes root a spearshaped balloon is formed, which grows with the stem toward the surface of the water. This balloon frequently has a diameter of six feet or more. It has, of course, an upward tendency, and therefore keeps the stem growing until it floats on the top of the water. This enormous weed grows in such quantities that large meadowlike islands are formed, which lyo often so big as to impede navigation. The ropes made from the stems of the plant are used for ...

Nugget, Placerville, December 29th. "Happy Tom" Burrell was arrested yesterday for assault, on a warrant sworn out by Tom Irvine. His case came up in Justice Carpender's court this morning, and in half an hour Burrell was acquitted. A day or two ago Burrell went to Sacramento, leaving the bar of the hotel in charge of Irvine, who, as soon as he was left alone, commenced to fill up on all the good things which "Happy Tom's" place affords, until he was "unfit for publication. " In response to a telephone message, telling of the state of affairs, Burrell hurried home, and the first thing he did upon entering the hotel was to order Irvine out. Irvine persisted in banging around the hotel and "Happy Tom," employing his usual method ol ridding himself of obnoxious persons, turned a soda siphon on...
CALAVERAS* COUNTY [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 5 January 1900
CALAVERAS COUNTY Chronicle, Mokelumne Hill, December 30th. J. Giudugli, the man who was injured at the Gwin mine, an . account of which was given in our last issue, died from the effects of his injuries and was buried here Sunday last under the auspices of the Odd Fellows. Prospect, San Andreas, December 30th. Another accident happened in the Lightner mine last Wednesday forenoon. An Austrian named John Kostovich attempted to step off the skip while it was in motion, with the result that the bonnet of the skip struck him. He was badly cut on the head, side of neck and breast. It is said that it is impossible for him to recover. Of course nobody could be blamed but the unfortunate man himself, as it was undoubtedly a piece of gross carelessness on his part, unless he was obliged to do so in order to save himself from going into the sump, or to avert some other fatal Occident. E. E. Wood, the Angels attorney, filed another action in the Superior Court last Wednesday against C. R. Beal...

That Is the One. There are many Joneses in this world, but perhaps not quite so many as people think. Not long ago two friends met who had not seen each other for ten years, since their school days. "Whom did you marry, Billy?" aalced one. " A Miss Jones of Philadelphia," replied Billy, who was a trifle sensitive. "You always did take to the name of 'Jones. ' I can remember when we went to school together you used to tag around after a little snubnosed Jones girl." "I remember it, too, " said Billy. "She's the girl I married." : , G. H.

A Type of Silurian. In one of the public meetings in San Francisco discussing bond matters Col. M. H. Hecht said of a prominent opponent of the park improvements: "I have known him for thirty years.

Men of his class if not of his fortune are to be found in every community.

MISCELLANEOUS. CURIOUS CUCKOOS. The cuckoo is generally known only as a bird with a very monotonous note: a continuous cry of "cuckoo, cuckoo" over and over again. Among naturalists, however, the cuckoo is known as a bird that never builds a nest for itself, but takes advantage of one already built by some more industrious bird. There is a good deal of the cuckoo about these advertisers who, instead of making a success of their own, seek to profit by the success which some one else has made with much effort and labor. It is so with those imitations of Dr. Pierce's methods, by which free medical advice is offered, although those who make the offer are without qualified medical ability or experience. And the cry raised in some cases of "woman, woman, woman write to woman" makes the resemblance to the cuckoo even stronger. There is as far as known no qualified woman physician connected with any proprietary medicine establishment, and none therefore competent to give medical advice. It ...
