THE CHARIOT OF OLD [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
THE CHARIOT OF OLD A GRIM REMINDER OF THE COMBATS OF THE HEROIC PERIOD. ThU Vehicle 'Was Used In the Days , of Antiquity For the Battle, the Cbase, In Processions and :In Games— How It 'Was Constructed. The chariot was used In antiquity for the battle, the cbase, in public processions and in games. It had two wheels and was drawn by two horses, and when one or two horses were added they were attached to each side of the main pair by a side trace, fastened to the front of the chariot • . These chariots have only come down to us in fragments, with the exception of the one in the archaeological museum of Florence, which Is a unique example of a war chariot, the so called "Biga dl Frassino," found by Rossellneo in a Thebes tomb. It is certainly as old as the fourteenth century B. C. It is probably a trophy obtained In the north by some Egyptian warrior. There Is an entire absence of metal In the construction. Immediately on the axle, without springs of any kind, rests the basket or body...
Killed Classical Quotations. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
Killed Classical Quotations. In tracing the decline of the use of classic:^ quotations In legislative bodies the Boston Herald cites the case of Edward Everett, who once concluded a stately speech In congress with a long, sonorous and superbly modulated citation of a passage from Tacitus and then took his seat. No sooner was be through than up sprang a burly member from what was then a frontier state of the west He bad once been an Indian agent, and no sooner was he on his legs than he began to pour out a vehement harangue in Choctaw. After awhile the speaker called him to order.' j "I don't see why my freedom of speech should be abridged!" he cried. "You let the gentleman from Massachusetts run on, and I didn't understand the first word of his lingo any better than he does mine." The scene was described as very comical, but It struck the deathknell of further classical quotations In a congress that had not the ray of an idea what the unintelligible lingo of Cicero and Tacitus was d...

Proud of Hla Labels. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
Proud of Hla Labels. A distangy looking young man boarded a Fourteenth street car at Massachusetts avenue the other night He was' carrying &amp; leather suit case. Pasted all over the suit case were labels indicating much foreign travel — steamer pasters slapped on at Dieppe, Havre, Ostend, Bremen, Cherbourg, Liverpool, Yarmouth, Naples, and railroad labels that bore the names of all lines all the way from Constantinople to St Petersburg. The j-oung man of distangy. appearance put the suit case down between his legs, and all the people In the soats opposite began a fascinated sort of inspection of the labels. A stout man with several of the component parts of a Jag who sat next to the young man seemed to regard the labels . with particular Interest. He stooped over and deciphered them carefully and elaborately, and then he looked up at the owner of the suit case with a leer. ""Been around right smart, hain't you, podner?" he Inquired. The young man regarded him with a smile....
The Stan; Beetle. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
The Stan; Beetle. As you walk by tbe hedgeside a strange noise suddenly arrests your attention. It Is the buzz of an insect, but loud enough to startle you. It might be mistaken for the reeling of a night Jar, but It Is perhaps more like the Jarring bum of a fastly driven motor car. The reason of the noise is that the beetle has with great pains climbed up a certain height from the ground, and In order to ascertain whether he has got far enough, he erects himself on his stand, lifts his wing cases, shakes out his wings and begins to agitate them violently, turning this way and that to make sure that he has a clear space. If he then attempts to fly— it Is one of his common blunders— he instantly strikes against some branch or cluster of leaves ans] is thrown down. The tumble does not hurt him' In the least, but so greatly astonishes him that he remains motionless a good while; then, recovering his senses, he begins to ascend again. At length, after a good many accidents and adventure...
Looking Ont For Alma Mater. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
Looking Ont For Alma Mater. No doubt the casual observer has often noticed how unceasingly bequests flow Into the treasuries of certain universities, but he may not know that the alumni of those Institutions, particularly the lawyers, have it always on their minds to secure, or at least to suggest, bequests. One of these men, a prominent corporation lawyer of this city, was speaking of the custom the other day. He explained that a lawyer and his client usually sit down to talk over the general subject of a will. If tlie client lias more than enough money to meet the actual needs of his family, he commonly says something of charitable or educational Institutions, generally In a vague way, which makes it quite natural for his lawyer to suggest as a definite object his own alma mater. The lawyer referred to had himself secured several bequests, one of them for the sum of $300,000. "But," said he, smiling, "a young lawyer In my office has Just cut me out of $100,000, which he put In a. ...
Bother Cold Blooded. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
Bother Cold Blooded. Of the tactics of infantry there Is no end, but there are some simple rules for tbe individual foot soldier to remember when lost In the chaos of battle. If you cannot bayonet your enemy, shoot him. If he goes away, aim at tbe base of his spine. But do not let your attention be distracted from business by tbe consideration that other people are making a mark of you. It is your duty to kill the highest possible number of those opposed to you, not to save your own skln.-"How Soldiers Fight," by P. iNorreys-Connell.

After a Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 30 March 1900
After a Battle. In the first aid that is rendered: on the field after a battle nothing is attempted beyond the arrest of.hemorrhage, the application of temporary splints for fractures and antiseptic dressing. There is no washing or exploration of wounds. The clothes are merely slit up with scissors,* not removed, thus insuring protection to the patient's body and saving unnecessary disturbances. The sergeant In charge of the collection station has a field companion, a water bottle and a small reserve of bandages and first dressings'in bis care to replenish the surgical haversacks with which the bearers are supplied. Triangular bandages are chiefly used on the battlefield, made from a 3S Inch square of linen or calico, cut diagonally into halves. Almost anything that comes to band may be used as Improvised splints— sticks, telegraph wire, bark of trees, straw, rifles, bayonets, lances and so on. The splint, if necessary, is padded with straw or leaves or grass and is fastened with st...
