Dates In Arizona, While able to \ withstand considerable frost in winter the date palm must have a very dry and exceedingly hot climate at the time of the ripenlug of the dates. .The sandiest and, generally speaking, the poorest soils produce the best dates.

Still, an abundance of water Is at certain periods of Its maturing quite necessary. Arizona Is thought to be a eood field for late, growing. - T ■
Graduating Thermometer*. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 March 1900
Graduating Thermometer*. According to the usual practice, the graduations on the thermometer scales and levels are marked by scratching the surface of the glass In some way at each point where there Is to be a graduation, says Popular Science. But the glass Is weakened in each of these points and Is apt to break,- which Is dangerous In the case of boiler levels. It Is evident that this could be avoided by softening slightly the surface of the glass at the desired points and mixing some coloring matter with it An American firm asserts that It has obtained this result under the best conditions by passing over the tube where a graduation Is to be marked nu Iron disk turning at the rate of 2,400 revolutions a minute. The friction causes a rise of temperature sufficient partly to melt the glass, and at the same time small particles of iron are detached from the wheel and become Incorporate ed in tbe softened class.

How Hard Bees Work. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 March 1900
How Hard Bees Work. Darwin after close observation found that a bee would often visit as many as 27 Sowers in tbe course of a minute, though with other plants in which the honey was difficult to extract the average would be as low as seven. Striking a moan between these two figures, one may say that an ordinary working bee visits 15 flowers a minute, or 000 n n hour. Considering tbe late hours to which a boe works. It Is probably no exaggeration to say that It Is busy for olghl hours a day. allowing for Intervals of rest. This would make It visit 7,'J00 flowers a day. or 648.000 In a period of six months. Mr. A. S. Wilson In a recent paper showed the enormous amount of labor gone through by bees In making even a small quantity of honey. He found that approximately 125 beads of red clover yield 15 grains of sugar, or 125,000 beads about two pounds. As each bead contains some (iO florets. It follows that 7.500,000 distinct flower tubes must be sucked In order to obtain two pounds of s...

Mice as Food In China. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 March 1900
Mice as Food In China. The first thing which strikes the traveler In China upon his entrance Into any of the many cities of the Colestial empire is the strings of dried mice which bang from the roofs of the bouses suspended by their tails, just as sausages are hung In front of buti.-her shops In France. The Chinese bunt these mice with a long, sharp pointed knife, which they plunge Into the animals' throats. Then the mice are suspended-by the tails until the blood has dripped out, when they are skinned, drawn and smoked. Another favorite dish with tbe Chinese Is dogs' feet The feet of black dogs are considered more of a delicacy than those of any other color, and white dogs are rejected as being tasteless. Dogs' fat, prepared In a special manner. Is looked upon as a repast fit for a king.
