More Than He Bargained For. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
More Than He Bargained For. One evening when a traveling circus was on Its way to a largo town the proprietor resolved to make a halt for a few hours at a village some two or three miles from the town. ■ So an agent was sent on In advance to the village to secure a favorable field for the rest by the wayside. Noticing a large and suitable field, he sought out the owner and told him he would like to turn something out in the field for an hour or so before going tin to the town and concluded by asking bow much he required for the use of the field. "Well," said the farmer, "I suppose half a crown won't hurt you." "That," was the ready reply, "will do very well. But perhaps you don't mind taking a crown," an offer the Eomewhat astonished yeoman was only too glad to accept' Fancy his surprise when, a few hours afterward, a herd of elephants, a dozen dromedaries and about 200 horses and ponies had not only been turned out Into the field, but were fairly wiping the herbage out of existence...

Soldiers Avoid the flcan. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
Soldiers Avoid the flcan. "I hare noticed," said the old soldier, "that there Is one vegetable 'which the veterans of the civil war religiously avoid. That is the bean. It proved a very staying article, but after we had campaigned on it from Shiloh to Nashville and from Antlctam to the Wilderness we were ready to cry 'Enough!' I understand it is used but sparingly in the kitchens of soldiers' homes. It will take another generation to rehabilitate this vegetable in the affection of the American people."— New York Hall «3S&amp;&gt;?M|&lt;.
LIMITS OF SEED VITALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
LIMITS OF SEED VITALITY. Ifo Troth In Stories of Germination After Thousands of Years. "The statement Is frequently, made In the popular press," said Professor L. H. Pammel, government botanist, "that seeds have retained their vitality for a long time. Thus It Is stated that wheat under some conditions has preserved Its vitality for 50. or 100 years. It has frequently been stated that wheat taken from Egyptian monuments germinated, but In not a single i-ase is this germination authenticated. Not a single grain taken from an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus and sown by various persons has ever been known to germinate, and the conditions for preserving the seed In these Egyptian monuments are better than In the soiL They are protected from the Mr and variations of temperature. The experiment which has been most talked of Is that of the Count of Steraberg at Prague. He had received the grains from a trustworthy traveler, who told him that they were taken from a sarcophagus. It Is said that...
BOOKS' NARROW ESCAPES. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
BOOKS' NARROW ESCAPES. Vlrsrll's "/Eneld," Works of Aristotle and Talmud Saved by Good Lncb, Three of the greatest books in the world have narrowly escaped destruction, the "^Eneld" of Virgil, the works of Aristotle and the great body of Jewish tradition represented by the Talmud. It is recorded that Virgil on his deathbed sought to burn the only copy of the ".iEneld," as he had not revised it, and when he was foiled in this he ordered his executors, Varro and Tucca, not to give it to the world, a direction which was disregarded by order of the Emperor Augustus. -. , The works of Aristotle suffered from neglect. Thej* lay many years buried In a cellar, and when, by mere accident they were at last unearthed, they were so damaged by damp and dirt that In many passng'es they are hopelessly corrupt.^ How great would have been the .loss of this work to the human race may be judged from the fact that everything that was known in the middle agss of the arts and sciences was derived directl...
The Model's Hard Trial. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
The Model's Hard Trial. Miss Siddal bad a trying experience. In order that the artist might get the proper set of the garments in water and the right atmosphere and aqueous effects, she had to lie In a large bath filled with water, which was kept at an even temperature by lamps placed beneath. One day, just as the picture was nearly finished, the lamps went out unnoticed by the artist who was so Intensely absorbed In his work that he thought of nothing else, and the poor lady was kept floating in the cold water till she was nearly benumbed. She herself, never complained of this, but the result was that she contracted a severe cold, and her father, an auctioneer, at Oxford, wrote to Mlllals, threatening him with an action of £50 damages for his carelessness. Millals paid the doctor's bill, and Miss Siddal, quickly recovering, was none the worse for her cold bath. — Life of Sir John Mlllals. ' )

A Very Foxy Fox. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
A Very Foxy Fox. A gentleman whose word cannot be doubted and who is not easily deceived tells the following: Very early one morning he saw a fox eying most wistfully a number of wild ducks feeding In the rushy end of a highland lake. After awhile the fox, going to windward of the ducks, put afloat in the lake several bunches of dead rushes or grass, which • floated down among the ducks without causing the least alarm. After watching the effect of bis preliminary fleet for a short time the fox, taking a good sized mouthful of grass In his jaws, launched himself Into the water as quietly as possible, having nothing but the tips of bis ears and nose above water. In this way he drifted down among the ducks and caught a fine mallard.' Though this story seems extraordinary, it must be remembered that the fox manages to capture wild ducks, wood pigeons, hares and numberless other animals, sufficient to keep himself and family, and It Is plain to be seen that In doing so he must practice m...
A Queer Transaction. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
A Queer Transaction. "A casual observer might suppose that our business was intensely prosaic," said a Poydras street commission merchant, "but such is far from being the case. All sorts of queer things happen in it not the least of which are occasional consignments we receive from nowhere in particular. ... "For instance, back in 1896 or thereabout we got a load of fine onions one day by boat. No directions accompanied them, but we took lt for granted they would arrive by mall. When the expected letter failed to put in an appearance and we instituted Inquiries, we could get no clew, to the identity of the shipper, and all we could do was to sell the lot and deposit the money In bank, waiting on a claimant. "Fully three years had elapsed when, to my surprise, another load of the same kind of onions came to hand, accompanied by a letter from the sender saying that he had forwarded a similar consignment at such and such a date and that his 'business relations with the house had been s...
Makeshift Wedding Rings. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 6 April 1900
Makeshift Wedding Rings. Curious Instances have been cited where makeshift substitutes, for the conventional wedding ring have been, utilized during the marriage ceremony. One such instance occurred some time ago in a nearby town, where the ring was missing. Nothing better being available as a substitute, a curtain ring was used, and on still another occasion the ring handle of the church key was utilized. A couple in this state used in such an emergency a ring formed from the outer edji** of a coin and which had been carried by some one present as a curiosity. A gallant best man came to the rescue at a recent wedding, when the ring was not forthcoming at the right time. He drew from bis tie the slender stickpin that had been adorning It and, bending the wire into ring shape, handed the improvised wedding ring to the distracted groom. A horseshoe nail bent to the shape of a ring Is said to bring a great deal of luck to the owner, and the lead cramp ling worn six centuries ago has gi...
