NOTES OF THE DIAMOND, The Dispute Over the Postponed Game at Stockton. How Sacramento Players Stand in the Season's Averages—Games Hero This Week. Manager Ginsberg of the Sacramento Baseball Club has arrived at the conclu sion that the Sacramentos had a post poned game with the Oaklands, and says ho will insist that the contest played at Stockton a couple of weeks ago, in which the Senators were the victors, was a league game. Ho says that the postponed game was one which was to have taken place in Oakland a couple of months ago, but on account of inclement weather did not come off. Judging from the manner in which Mo- Quirk of the Sacramentos is hitting the ball lately, he will soon be at the top of the list of batters in the league. Ge< >rge Zeigler has been released from the Krie clnb. Godar is managing the Cedar Rapids team at present, but it is said the league is liable to go under at any time. According to the 1 Sporting Life, Dale, the "Rasper - Jasper - Toosper-tasper"...

6 ANIMALS AND REASON. The Destructive Principle in Various Insects, Far-Sieiitodness of Wild Beasts—The Courageous Tif*er—Animal Train ing— Trapping: Wild Elephants—The Crafty Fox. In the examination of the poisonous machinery of insects and reptiles, it is apparent that the destructive principle is tho same in all, and that the fang in all possesses a hollow, through which the poison Hows into tho wound the moment tho incision is made. The sting of the scorpion is precisely like tho fang of tho rattlesnake, and performs its deadly work on tho same mechanical principles. The grip of an ant's jaw is retained even after the body has boon bitten olf and nothing but the head remains. This knowlodge is possessed by a certain tribe of Indians in Brazil, who put the ants to a very peculiar use. When an Indian gets a gash cut in his hand, instead of having his hand sown together, as physi cians do in this country, he procures live or six large black ants, and, holding their heads near the g...

We hear a eood deal about "humidity" , nowadays, says a noted scientist writing ! in the New York Herahl, and most of US know that the word refers to the amount of moisture or water vapor in the air. j But the methods of measuring humidity j and the exact meaning of such ancxpres ■ton as "humidity 80," or "s(> \nr cent.," j is not, I think, very generally under- j stood. The method of measuring hu- | midity which firsts suggests itself is to j extract the water from the air and actu ally measure or weigh it. This is some- I times done, but the process is slow and difflcultin practice, ttiough simple enough ; in theory. A vessel whose exact capacity is known -suppose it to be ten gallons— j is rilled with water through a tube at the j top and the tube is then closed...

6 CALIFORNIA FRUITS. JOBBERS PURSUING A MOST CON SERVATIVE POLICT. Larero Amount of Greon Fruit Sold in Now York, Chicago, Boston and Minneapolis. Special to the Record-Uniok. Nkw Yor.K, July 22.—The Commercial Bulletin says: The early contracts last year for California raisins did not pan out satisfactory in a linancialAAvar,> r, and, therefore, it is not surprising that instead of entering largo orders the jobbing trade is at present folloAving a conservative policy of the most profound type, and it is doubtful if all tlie commission houses together could place 1,000,000 boxes among F.astern customers without mak ing inducements. This contrast in tho situation is Avorth recalling, and affords reason to the hope that last year's un pleasant experience Avill be reversed. Apricots and prunes for future delivery do not appear more attractive than raisins at present, and all signs are very much at fault if the season this year does not open on a safer and much more substantial basis...
