A few days ago I went up to Wiley's Lrlcc, four miles from Fillomre, one of the young towns iv the Santa Clara Valley, and filled myself with water from a sul phur spring which gushes out of the mountain and feeds the lake, and from an iron spring which does not gush at all, but just simply forms itself into a pool with a red scum over the surface and looks nasty. I drank deeply of both springs, and have felt like another man since. I shall go again soon, and the in quest will follow in due season. Also a post mortem examination. My last will and testament will be found in the escritoire, neatly folded and inserted in the heel of a sock that was once worn by Joaquin Murietta.

It was, with the Sacramentos, another case of "couldn't hit Cobb" yesterday afternoon, and the game went the way contests usually end when San Fran cisco's crack pitcher does the box work. Thore la no use denying that Cobb should rank as one ol the best pitchers in the profession, lie has lots of speed, some very puzzling "twisters" and above all, magnificent control. He pitches just as well in Sacramento or San Jose as he does on tho home diamond, and the bat ters ofthe Senatorial team all admit that he is a puzzler to them. It would have been too much luck for tho Sacramentos to have taken both games yesterday from the San Franciscos, bo they dropped the last contest to the visitors by a score of 13 to 4.
