Norris Bros, and Rowe's Trained Animal Show is in town, ,' and, of course, the children are happy. . . 'Tis truly marvelous what dumb beasts have learned from man. For instance, what would our little Amador friends think to see one Shetland pony ride on the bac,k of two ponies, to see. agQ&amp;twith a live monkey on its back walk a tight rope; a I dog walk on . two . legs on the same side-of its body, or on two legs on opposite sides * of . its body ' and yet all these and many ■-. more things are done by these clever beasts. r* ; .Cape .

A THRILLING SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
A THRILLING SIGHT. CATCHING AND KILLING THE MONV BTER TUNNY FISH. They Are First Driven Into Enor- : |"' muni Nets In . the Mediterranean Sea and Are Them Stabbed and Slashed to Death With Spears. 'One of the most thrilling and wonderful sights In the world is that of the tunny fisheries of the Mediterranean sea. .The pursuit of these great and . swift fishes is not a mere tame operation of netting, "it Is a fight between man I and sea creatures such as Is duplicated nowhere except In the whale fisheries. The tunny Is a huge mackerel. He is a predaceous fish, and his course through the seas is that of a destroyer without parallel. So deadly Is the tunny to the schools , of herring and similar j food fishes that he is called the herring bog. In our waters he Is known more generally as the horse mackerel. The tunny fisheries are distinctly European, and- they are the oldest Industry that is known In the Mediterranean sea.' To capture them men must band themselves together In large bod...
Red Paint In New England. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
Red Paint In New England. As one drives through the country towns all over Maine one can hardly fall to notice the frequent old red barn and oftentimes a whole set of farm buildings painted this conspicuous color. Query was made as to the reason therefor. It seems red paint Is cheapest far cheaper than white lead paint and so far as servlceableness goes lasts as long and sheds the rain as well. Long may the little red farmhouse brighten our New Bngland landscapes. — Bangor Whig and Courier. In all contentions between wit and violence/ prudence and rudeness, learning, and the sword, the strong band took It first, and the strong head possessed lt last.

Ho Excite For Cblmneya. Notwithstanding that we have long since ceased to hoist coal to lofty apartments, having abandoned forever the old fashioned fireplace with its soot and cinders, the said fireplace is still .with ns In every new house. that Is built. Its open throat leads the same old draft up the chimney, and the same old result follows— colds aJfd cold feet .There Is no excuse for a chimney or a fireplace in a modern house heated from the cellar. The gas log Is a nuisance and a sham.— New York Press.
A»to«ndlnn Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
A»to«ndlnn Politeness. The truck driver Is proverbially pro- ; fane, and when one Is discovered who j doesn't swear between syllables when his vehicle la jammed In a bunch of other trucks and blocked trolley cars you feel like taking off your hat to him. Down at Second and Chestnut streets one afternoon, when traffic was at its ! thickest and tracks and cars were lined j llong both thoroughfares, two truck- j men had equal chances of making the i crossing. One was coming down Chest- j nut and the other along Second street. Had. they been ordinary truckmen each would have whipped up, and the chances are that a collision would have resulted. But these two were not ordinary truckmen. With Chesterfleldlan grace one waved his arm to the other, Inviting him to take precedence. "You first!" shouted the driver, whereupon a messenger boy who had witnessed the remarkable scene gasped and nearly swallowed his cigarette stump. "After you," was the next contribution to this remarkable dialogue. ...
A Persistent Poet. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
A Persistent Poet. Although R. K. Munklttrick has an enviable reputation as a humorist yet he is not the quickest man in the world to see a joke when it is played on himself. Mr. Gibson, one of the editors of Puck and also a practical joker, arranged for a' special jest to be administered to Mr. Munklttrick. He had provided a trick telephone which emitted a shower of flour when anybody spoke Into It When Mr. Munkittrick had arrived, it was suddenly discovered that the paper had gone to press and that his copy was too late. There was only one chance, Mr. Gibson said, and that was to telephone to the printer and tell him to stop the presses until his matter should be set up and Inserted. He asked Mr. Munkittrick to go to the phone at once. Then the staff sat and held their sides, waiting for the explosion. Finally Mr. Gibson rushed to the telephone and found his friend deluged in flour, but stiU persistently calling "Hello!" through the phone. He led him back and carefully explained t...
The Parisian Way. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
The Parisian Way. It must be hard for the untraveled Anglo-Saxon to grasp the idea that a poet can without loss of prestige recite his lines in a public cafe before a mixed audience. If such doubting souls could, however,- be present at one of these noctes ambrosianse, they would quickly realize that the Latin temper"ament can throw a grace and childish abandon around an act that . would cause an Englishman or an American to appear supremely ridiculous. One's taste or sense of fitness Is never shocked. It seems the most natural thing In the world to be sitting there with your glass of beer before you while some rising poet whose name ten years later may figure among the "Immortal Forty" recites to you his loves and his ambition or brings tears into your eyes with a description of some humble hero or martyr.— Eliot Gregory In Scribner's.
She Heard It. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
She Heard It. The surplleed choir had done Its duty for the evening service. But all during the church hours there had been a peculiar sound outside as if a child were crying. In reality it was something the matter with the organ. It could be heard distinctly In the auditorium of the church. When the choir sang the recessional and marched slowly out of the church into the dressing rooms, one of the young ladies among the sopranos asked the woman who takes care of the robes: "Did you hear that awful squeaking out here?" "Yes, Indeed, mum; I could almost understand the words." And nothing more was said on the subject— Detroit Free Press.
