Pool the Bees and the People. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

Pool the Bees and the People. | "People buy comb honey," said a man from the country, "believing that the fact that it is sealed by the honest little' bee • precludes the possibility of fraud.- The j fact is that the bees of many professional 'honey' raisers do nothing the livelong summer but pack glucose into their hives from an open barrel that is left standing close | by. The bee will not search fragrant flowers the livelong day for a trifling amount of pure honey when he can get glucose. The honey men see that there is plenty of glucose bandy, and instead of one pound of pure honey they aid the bees in putting ten pounds of glucose on the market. - "Human Ingenuity has not devised a way for making and sealtng the honeycomb, or the bee would be dispensed with altogether.. In handling the glucose the bees give it a honeyish flavor, and if you complain to the bee man that it is not as sweet and sticky as it should be he will tell you that It is the early crop and that the heavy rai...

An Immortal Oration. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

An Immortal Oration. The funeral oratiou of Pericles Is pretty nearly what was actually spoken, or else it is the substance of the speech written out In the historian's own words, says James Ford Rhodes in The Atlantic. Its intensity of feeling and the fitting of it so well Into the situation Indicate it to be a living contemporaneous document, and at ! the same time it has that universal application which we i note in so many speeches of Shakespeare. A few years after our civil j war a lawyer in a city of the middle west who had been selected . to deliver the Memorial day oration came to a friend of his in despair because he could write nothing but the commonplaces about those who had died for tbe Union and for the freedom of a race which had been uttered many times before, and he asked for advice. "Take the funeral oration of Pericles for a model," was the reply. "Use his words where they will fit and dress up the rest to suit our day." The orator was surprised to find how much of...

Averted the Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

Averted the Storm. A certain congressman went home at a very early hour In the morning. He bad made a night of it with some friends. He knew that his conduct would be considered reprehensible by his better half, and so, as he ascended the steps of his modest home, he racked his brain for some plan to avert the lady's wrath. As he entered the hall he saw an umbrella. Instantly it occurred to him that the umbrella might be his salvation. He carried the umbrella up stairs. Seating himself on a chair in the corner of the bedroom, he raised the rain guard over his head, and then he coughed loudly. His wife awoke and saw in the dim gaslight her liege lord sitting solemnly under the raised umbrella. "What are you doing?" she asked in natural surprise. "It Is 3 o'clock, nay dear," said he, "and I am waiting for the storm." tthe congressman's ready wit saved him from a Caudle lecture. He is worrying now, however, to find an equally effective act for the next time he stays out late,— Washingt...

Average Time of a Wink. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

Average Time of a Wink. "In a twinkling of an eye" Is a phrase for brevity, but M. Garten in "The Archives de Pfluger" has found the average time of a wing to be about „40 of a second. The eyejid descends In about . .80 of a second, stays down about .13 of a second to .17 of a second and rises again In about .17 of a second. Winking varies much In different persons and rarely occurs when the attention Is concentrated, but this omission is followed by a series of winks to make up, either by resting the eye or cleaning \%,

Force of Bablt. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

Force of Bablt. In 1827, Just after Dan Dougherty, the Irish pugilist,' fought his famous fight with Jem Belcher, the English fighter, on the curragh of Kildare, near 1 Dublin, he became involved In a controversy with an unknown. The latter was not a pugilist and, not wishing to take any advantage of his opponent Dougherty consented to fight him with pistols. The two met by appointment, but their seconds, unknown to them, extracted the balls from the pistols and substituted blank cartridges. By the terms of the agreement between the principals Dougherty's opponent was to have the first shot The natural Instinct prevailed even on the dueling ground, and as the fighter's opponent raised his arm to fire Dougherty elevated his right arm, as If to ward off a blow, evidently Intending to stop the bullet from hitting him In the face. After this who can say that fighters are not dead game men?— Kansas City Independent ~

Eaay to Beat Hotels. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

Eaay to Beat Hotels. "Hotel men give out that they warn each other by circulars about deadbeats," said the slick looking man with the high hat, "but don't you let that stop you If you want to live high for a week. Few men like to publish the fact that they have been done up. It's the easiest thing In the world to beat a first class hotel. All you want is a good suit of clothes and plenty of cheek. A grip with tt few shirts and collars Is as good as a trunk. "You drive up In style; you register to get the best room in the house;. yon bulldoze the clerks and threaten the servants. A checkbook Is a good thing to show, but you pay for nothing. Yon talk In a loud voice, you make plenty of kicks, and you order the best wines for dinner.

If you are suffering with obstinate, lingering cough, bleeding of the lungs, bronchitis, emaciation, weakness, a condition which if neglected or unskilfully treated, leads to consumption, begin at or.cc the use of Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

llpi The Jackson Republican Club has a membership of - practically »200, in exact figures 194. This number, if united •arid properly enthused, will become a tremendous political power in Amador. county. It is high time the Republican „ party of,this county asserted itself, and stood up big enough , and with backbone enough to gain some of the things it is entitled to^ There is nothing to be gained by half-hearted work, and there is nothing to be gained as a party .by. conces- sions to our opponents. The party must stand pat on every issue if it ever expects to dominate in Amador county. The r timeis now ripe for inserting the small end of the wedge „. which will ultimately burst asunder the heretofore Democratic adamant. If the Republicans of Amador county will -stand together as one man, a big winning will be made during the coming campaign which will pave the way for a much more important one next time. The signs of the times are in.our favor, and it is our duty to take advantage ...

E. T. CHAMBERLAIN'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900

E. T. CHAMBERLAIN'S REPORT United States Commissioner NO DUTY ON MATERIAL FOR SPECIFIED VESSELS Over fifty Per Cent, of the Amount Paid for a Finished Ship Goes to Shipyard Labor. There is a very general impression in certain parts of the country that if the materials used in shipbuilding wore admitted free of duty our shipbuilders would he ablo to build ships as cheaply in the United States as they can be built in foreign countries. Comparatively few people know that such materials have for years been on our freo list. Many think that American shipbuilders are compelled to patronize home steel producers, and that they are com polled to buy of these manufacturers, no matter what prices they demand. Commissioner of Navigation E. T. Chamberlain, of the Treasury Department, who is constantly administering the laws relating to merchant vessels of the United Stales, referring to the misapprehension of our laws for free raw material for shipbuilding, said: .
