Their Beat Christmas. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
Their Beat Christmas. The international doll collection of Boston gave 206 Indian children "the best Christmas they ever had." The children covered two pine trees in their school yard in California with the presents sent. One hundred parents of these children came miles. to see the trees and enjoyed seeing them and the presents as much as the children who received them. In that climate the presents could remain on the trees a long time without Injury, which would enable the children to enjoy the trees and show each other the gifts which belonged to them, making Christmas day extend at least a week its length. The superintendent of the school writes: "The pleasure and Joy of these helpless children would repay one for all expense and trouble in sending so '•far away as from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. Their gratitude also was much greater than as a rule Indians are credited with, and they are having a very happy time, and the present* sent have been an Immense help to these ch...

CHIEFS OF THE SULUS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
CHIEFS OF THE SULUS. Each-llaa Hie Power of Life or Deatb Over Hlx Subjects. The social system among the Moros is much more primitive than it Is among the greater part of the other Philippine races. A chief, or dato. con trols a district. lie has his own par ticular followers and his slaves. Besides these he may command all the men of his own district In time of war. He also has the right of life and death over his subjects. For Instance, a few weeks before we arrived in Jolo, Data Jokaniue had occasion to execute one of his followers. The man had been Intrusted with money belonging to the dato. The first time be came to his chief and said: "Oh. great aud henevolent dato. 1 have gambled away the money! Forgive me!" "Very well." said the dato. "See that It does not happen again." Once more the retainer came, saying: "Oh, great ait 1 benevolent dato, again have 1 gambled away thy money, and again I beg tbee. In thy great mercy, to forgive me!" . ; • ■ . "This is the second time I have...

.Malarial Research. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
.Malarial Research. Nature gives an interesting summary of the results achieved In malarial research by Manson, Ross, Grass!. Bignanil and Bastianelli, and then goes on to Indicate the lines along which future achievements may be expected. The different species &lt;&gt;f anopheles should be hunted for, in order to ec-o if these are the intermediary hosts of the different types of malaria throughout the world and what species is most concerned la human transmission. Another problem will be wbetherthe anopheles can be extirpated from a locality and by what means. It seems that the anopheles Is confined to small itrefts, so that "the suggestion of Ross to draw off the water from stagnant pools may not be so hopeless a task as It would at first appear."
Three Halted Schooners. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
Three Halted Schooners. It was on the great lakes that the three masted schooner first made its appearance. The unique character of lake navigation created the necessity for this type of sailing craft because of the fact that with this class of vessel sailors could handle the sheets from the deck at times when it was impossible to go aloft in one of those sudden storms which make the life of the lake skipper an uncertain and anxious one. — Ainslee's Magazine.

Getting Acquainted. The family had occupied the dwelling about a day and a half, and the mistress thereof was putting a carpet down in the sitting room when there came a ring at the doorbell. She hastened to the front door and opi-ned It. A smiling woman greeted her. "Good morning!" said the caller. "This is Mrs. Murkley, I presume." •lies." "I am Mrs. Pergallup, your next door neighbor."

"Now, don't you apologize, Mrs. Murkley. I know all about this thing of moving." "It's an awful job. Isn't It?" "Terrible. I sometimes tell ' Mr. Pergallup I'd almost rather have a spell of sickness than to move. Two moves are about as bad as a fire. Well, I thought I'd drop in and get acquainted.

Food Elements In Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
Food Elements In Fruit. Sugar, starch, gum, dextrin, pectlne. saccharifiable cellulose, qfganle acids and other extractive matters are., together with water, the chief elements In pulp fruits. The sugar Is assimilable and Is a food. Frnits which contain,most of it, as bananas, dates and figs, are true hydrocarbonated foods. Extractive matters are also nourishing, but In a less degree, as they are not so digestible. With these aud other ran* exceptions, however, fruits, in the opinion of M.

English Restaurants. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
English Restaurants. Different countries produce different foods. Perhaps that is the reason why a description of a railway restaurant in England sounds so curious to Aincr lean cars. This terminus restaurant corresponds to the American luneli counter, where pie and coffee are the staple refreshments of the hurried hungry man. Patrons crowd the English place three deep and wait for the front row to finish eating and depart. One elderly woman drinks hot spirit and water and eats sandwiches. Beside her a country couple devour buns and milk - how British "buns" sounds!— and a busy man eats sponge cake and drinks port wine. Can one imagine a Chicago broker rushing Into a quick lunch counter with a demand for sponge cake? He might as well ask for a coach and four. In this London restaurant a mother of a family regales herself and her meek husband with ginger beer and cakes, and a nervous young clergyman asks for a glass of milk. Buns, sponge cake, milk and beer— tjj.e menu is a little di...

A» fSxclnslve Boole. The "Almanaeli Ue tioth^" Is the most exclusive book of its kind, and perhaps of any kind in the world, and to get one's name in Its pages Implies that one Is either an exalted personage or tjoweihlng very much like It. And of those whose names appear very few are able to boast of having 9. portrait between its select and scarlet covers.— London Letter.
fright, Not. Fascination. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
fright, Not . Fascination. | j Naturalists are not at all agreed upon the point as to whether snakes are able to fascinate their prey. Certainly they do not possess the power to the extent that, popular belief would have It' Stories of the weird and mystic Influence of a serpent's eye fall flat In the face of scientific accuracy. What can be said of snakes, however. Is that their very appearance paralyzes the victim. It cannot move for fright, for its faculties are temporarily suspended.- There Is no fascination about this, however. It Is fright and fright alone.
