HE IS CHIEFLY SELF-TAUGHT The Strength of the Painter's Work Is Its Excellent Drawing, Among the pictures in the Paris salon which opened on the Ist of this month is a delicate and effective landscape in oils, representing a pastoral scene at Concar neau, France. Incredible as it may appear, the work is by a young California artist, Harry Stu art Fonda, who has studied for only eighteen months. Up till a year and a half ago the young painter was entirely self-taught, and yet his salon picture, the work of an unknown foreigner in Paris, was one of SOCK) sent in to the salon jury, only 1200 of which were accepted. The work represents a road in a level country, with the luxuriant foliaee of a rural French scene in the height of early summer. The time is the early afternoon of a brilliantly clear day, and the light filtering down through the overhanging trees throws brilliant patches of gold and cree...

Captain Isaacson and ten men were drowned and frozen to death. The names of two of the dead are known— Henry Ledger and a hunter named Long Charley.

Seventeen of the crew were saved, all of whom were more or less frost-bitten, necessitating the amputation of many limbs. The schooner Prescoit left Kodiak hurriedly without getting a list of the dead. The story of the disaster was torrectly told in the Call dispatche...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS A Peddler Faints on the Street From Heat and Ex haustion. SUPPOSED TO BE SUNSTEOKE. Several Druggists Arrested for Sell ing Liquor Without a License. "What is the first case of probable sun stroke on record in Oakland occurred yes terday at the city wharf. The victim was Sam Davis, a fruit-peddler. The case is somewhat remarkable and can scarcely be laid entirely to the climate, for the truth is there was a fair breeze blowing at the time and the weather was i\ot as hot as it has been in Oakland during the past few days. Davis drove on the wharf and was about to dismount from his wagon when his hands went up and he fell back over the seat and was unconscious. This was at 1 o'clock, and it was not until 3 o'clock in the afternoon that he regained conscious- Davis was conveyed to the Receiving Hospital. The physicians there pro nounced it an apparent case of sunstroke, and this was afterward corroborated by Daviswhen he came to, and later by his family physician. D...

12 THEIR BOUNDARIES FIXED Governor Budd AUots the Territory to the New „ . Brigades. SIX GENERALS ARE DEPOSED. NO Attempt to Be Made to Control the Patronage of the Board of Health. At last the boundaries of the different brigades have been fixed upon. The result will startle most of those who have pro ■fessed to know it all, as the entire Sacra mento and San Joaquin valleys are for one brigade. It was this matter that occupied Gov ernor Budd the greater part of the day yesterday. He labored over boundaries and possibilities of defense and offense, and finally came to a decision. San Francisco, the bay and the northern coast counties are to form the First Brigade. The Pan Joaquin and Sacra mento valleys and the northern mountain counties are to comprise the Second Brigade. The region south of Tehaohapi, Monterey, San Luis Obispo and .San Benito counties make up the Third Brieade. Who the generals are to be is still a mat ter of conjecture.
