THOMAS WALKER AGRICULTURIST, U. S. N. Seaman Tom "Walker was the agricultur ist of the navy, and seed-time and harvest were to him periods as marked as the pip ing of mess-gear or the call of the watch. It was never known just when he first "shipped on board a farm," as they termed it and discussed it on the to'gal lant forecastle, where the gray-whiskered Solons of the sea debate. Whether his ranch experience began prior to the commencement of his sailor life or whether he had been going on all bis days alternating his ship and shore cruises were questions he never answered satisfactorily. But they knew Tom was a practical farmer and Was posted all about "hoi-ses and vegetables," and they were proud of his bucolic learning. Whenever a "haymaker" recruit started in to in struct them in plow lore or to startle the foretopmen's gangway with his remark able rural reminiscences they always threw him up again&t Tom Walker, and then stood by to witness the fellow's utter annihilation....

18 FORT FRAYNE CHAPTER XIV— Con-tutted. "Very well, I'll notify Captain Farwell," j said Leale, briefly, "and he will attend to it." and he left the building on this quest just as the second relief came tramping j out into the storm, leaving the guardhouse, its few minor prisoners on the lower floor, { and that one- execrated criminal, his old j colonel's first-born and once-beloved son, cursing at his captors in the tower, all to the care of the members of a single relief ; and the sentry on No. 1 set up his watch cry against the howl of the wind, and no one a dozen yards away could have heard, nor did it pass around the chain of sen tries, nor was there other attempt to call off the hour that memorable night. For i long days after men recalled the fact that ' the last hour called from undei the old i guardhouse porch was half-past 10 o'clock, i Meantime, having had two dances with his now pleading and repentant sweet heart, and having been cajoled into at least j partial forgivene...

LATEST STYLES OF COIFFURE. One of the most popular and one of the newest fabrics for summer wear is the so called "grass lawn." Why it has been so named I have not the least idea, as it looks like colored muslin, and is to be found in coffee, cream and yellow shades, being worked in holes in raised patterns, and oc casionally traced witn jet. An effective way of using it is to make an entire bodice of it, with shot silk sleeves and skirt, the bodice frequently being cut in the pin afore style to show a yoke, but sometimes it is made up with the pouch hanging ht from neck to waict, and is seldom [to form a box pleat. This is worthy of remark, for at present we have box pleats in back as well as the front, and our v : beeves show this adornment. while a n< w jacket now enjoying popular favor hangs in a box pleat from the center of the back and has oox pleats on either of the front.

In Childhoods Realm Gone Seaward. A merry, tiresome child an hour ago, That shouted acd made haste for life's mere sake, And knew no why for wandering to and fro; A creature boisterously blithe to be, Anil playtime was all hours when he might wake, An hour ago— and now, great river-tide, Vhat mute dead thing they cannot win from thee? An hour ago bis laughters broke the sky, And then, a foot that slipped, a parted wave, And life that was to be has all passed by. A plunge, a struggle, and he has forgot; And 'tis a naught they seek and cannot save. Hive back, great river-tide, the thing they seek; Give the unstirringlimbjjje frigid cheek. Give back the dead— the chiid ratoraeta not. And 'tis the common tale of life and death; And 'tis the lale that never shall seem true, For life is ours tue while we draw our breath, And death we know not, save its alien name. A restless child, that leaped and laughed and grew; And sudden there's but silence and a void, lireat river-tide, give back th...

24 BETWEEN THE BULLETS. Genera! Carfield's Famous Ride on Chickamauga's Bloody Field. HIS MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. A Noble Horse That Bore Him Well. How the Day Was Saved to the Union Army. The objective point of what is known as the Chiekamauga campaign was Chatta nooga, which is the southern gateway of the Alleghanies. Rosecrans had crossed the Tennessee, successfully maneuvered the enemy out of Chattanooga and thrown 2£oo men into the place. But a greater work remained--to march his whole force ■ into it in the face of Bragg's army, heavily re-enforced and largely outnumbering his own. To decide who should hold and oc cupy Chattanooga was fought the battle of Cbickamauga. The first day's battle left the Union ! forces in possession of the approaches to the city, and when he met his corps com- | manders on the night of that day, Rose- I crans said, in substance, to General Thomas, who commanded his left: "Your line lies across the road to Chattanooga. That is the pivot of the battle. Ho...

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 168. NEWS OF THE COAST A Murderous Affray Between Relatives at Woodland. TROUBLE IN A FAMILY. C. F. Agee, the Man Who Was Shot, Died Early Yesterday Morning. HEAVY RAINS AT REDDING. Damage to the Hay Crop at Ander son Causes Thousands of Dollars Loss. WOODLAND, Cal., May 26. — C. F. Agee, who was shot last night at Dixon by John Marshall, his brother-in-law, died early this morning. Marshall is in the County Jail at Fairrield, and his wounds are of such a serious nature that they may prove fatal. Marshall had had trouble with his wife, and she had instituted divorce pro ceedings. He was greatly opposed to this action, and several times tried to see his wife and come to an understanding. Finally a meeting was arranged at Mr. Agee's house near Dixon. The family all had dinner together and then commenced to discuss the matri monial troubles of the Marshalls. Mrs. Asree, Mrs. Marshall's sister, advised Marshall to leave the country, and Agee then said to him that if h...

2 CALISTOGA'S CHARMS Beauties of the City Far Up in the Napa Valley. ITS PLEASANT DEIVES. Rich Deposits of Quicksilver Found in the Heart of the Town. WEALTH FOR THE OWNERS. An Expert Says That With Proper Machinery the Mines Would Yield Rich Returns. CALISTOGA, Cal., May 36.— Far up the beautiful vine-clad valley of Napa, at a point where the iron horse of civilization linds a terminus, lies the picturesque little city of Calistoga. Nature has done won ders for this mountain-surrounded spot, making it a city of beautiful sights. There is nothing artificial about it, for look which way you will, huge mountains that appear like majestic guardians meet the gaze, while down their foliage-covered sides are wafted the delicious cooling breezes that have done much toward mak ing Calistoga famous as a healthful sum mer resort. These mountains that in winter are bleak looking, dreary and snow covered, are to-day clotted with the green foliage of the grape vine, while here and there are to b...

FORM A NEW NATION Boundary Lines in Cen- tra! America to Be Wiped Out. UNITE FOR PROTECTION. Sweeping Effect of the New Nicaragua-Honduras Treaty. OTHER STATES WILL JOIN. The First Move for the Organiza tion of a Southern Republic Has Been Made. WASHINGTGN, D. C, May 26.— New treaties of far-reaching importance have recently been made between Nicaragua and Honduras, and official copies have just been received in Washington. The treaties have been under negotiation for some time, and were finally put into effect by proclamation on the fifteenth of last month. They are the first practical steps toward the formation of a Central American nation out of several small re publics — Nicaragua. Honduras, Guate mala, Salvador and Costa Rica. The first treaty forms a defensive alli ance in case of foreign war, and an offen sive alliance against common enemies. It obliterates commercial frontiers, so that foreign goods once admitted to one coun try are free to enter the other. An ex press provi...

4 REVIEW OF REAL ESTATE Features That Will Make a City Permanently At tractive. BUILDING AND LOAN NEWS. Properties Offered at Private and Public Sale— Recent Sales ' Reported. Though a slight lull in business may be expected during the summer months, the real estate market co far has not felt it, because the conditions of improvement lie deeper than the surface. Some people cannot appreciate improve ment without the spirit of a boom, but such gamboling speculation in real estate is hurtful to any community. It has in jured, to say the least, the physical char acter of many of the cities of this Coast by encouraging hastily and cheaply con structed buildings and pavements often by swindling contractors. It is quite enough in such periods that houses and streets look well. Building for permanent occu pation and the laying of smooth and clean pavements should be the rule. San Francisco can be made to develop on lines of metropolitan character only by displaying private and public enter...

10 TALKED IN THE TEMPLE An Address by Rev. Anna H. Shaw to the Congregation Emanu-El. DR. VOORSANGER'S REMARKS. Last Night's Gathering- a Notable Event In the History of Amer ican Judaism. Probably at no time in the history of Judaism in America was such a sight wit nessed as the gathering in the Temple Emanu-E! last evening. The occasion for the stir in Hebrew circles was the fact that Rev. AnnaH. Shaw, a prominent speaker at the Woman's Congress, would address the congregation. It is a novelty for a woman to appear in a Jewish pulpit and the announcement served to bring to the sacred editice every prominent Isrealite in the City and many more from the sur rounding country. The time advertised for the opening of THE EEV. ANNA H. SHAW IN THE TEMPLE EMANTJ-Elj. service was 7:45 p. k. At 6:30 the temple was comfortably filled. At 7:15 there was not a seat to be had, and when the speaker of the evening ascended the pulpit platform hundreds were standing up in the aisles, for even stand...
