Before he could begin another sentence on.c of his chief tormentors arose and said, slowly and solemnly: "Oh, doctor douliUvu, Aouljleu, double-n, We love to trouble you, tronbjs you, trpabJA yon.' 1 The doctor sat down.— Kansas City Independent.
THE QUEER CRUSTACEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
THE QUEER CRUSTACEAN. Interest In* Character! (ties of Lob- sters and Turtles. Lobsters, when young and frivolous, change their shells several times a year, but as they grow older and, presumably, more sedate they are content with a new suit every summer. The lobster is his own tailor, and persons who have watched the process say that the difficulty seems to lie in getting rid of the old garb and not in flttlng.the'new. First he Is attacked by ft series of convulsions lasting for several days. During these a faint line of breakage appears down the middle of the back, which gradually grows broader with every spasm. The headpiece is the first to break entirely, and suddenly a violent effort enables the lobster to withdraw his head, leaving the larger part of his eyes in the shell. After a rest of a few hours the struggle begins again, and the shoulders, or large claws, emerge, with effort so exhausting that nearly a day. is required for recuperation. During this time he presents a cur...
AN EXAMPLE OF NERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
AN EXAMPLE OF NERVE. Warden McClanghry's Experience . 'With an Almost Escaped Prisoner. "Speaking of nerve," said one of the detectives at headquarters, "reminds me of Chief McClaughry of Chicago. He used to be warden at the state penitentiary down ln Jollet, and he had the reputation of being the coolest man in Illinois. He was as shifty as any of the men be had to handle and as quick and calm about it as a regular Sherlock Holmes. . Nothing could feaze him. "One day McClaughry was sitting In his office at just about the time the men were being marched back to their cells from work. ' He was alone. There was a sound behind him, and, whirling round, he saw a convict who had passed the guard ln some way creeping toward him with an ugly looking Iron bar in his hand. V. --■ " 'Don't you stir!' the man whispered. 'I'm going to get out of this If I have to kill you to do It' "'Oh,' McClaughry said, 'I thought you were going tomorrow!'

■* "Uier Saved Nor Earned. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
■* "Uier Saved Nor Earned. Railroad people have an arrangement by which they can register the speed of a train. It looks like a steam gauge and Is connected with the axle, so that the pointer registers the number of revolutions every minute. There are so many revolutions to tbe mile, and by an ingenious arrangement the number of miles an hour is shown upon the dial. The apparatus Is expensive as well as delicate. The late Jay Gould was one of the first to adopt It, and shortly after a register was placed in his private car Russell Sage was making a journey with him and inquired what it was. Mr. Gould explained the mechanism and the usefulness of the machine with great care. Mr. Sage was silent for a moment and then, looking up. Inquired: "Does it earn anything?" "No; I think not," said Mr. Gould, with a smile. "Does it save anything?" "No." "Then I would not . have it in my car."— Chicago Record.
The Road to Snccess. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
The Road to Snccess. There is a mistaken notion that success in life is achieved only by bard effort An "education" Is not necessary to become successful in life, beyond thorough familiarity with the rudiments. An education comes to an industrious man as naturally as age. Ability to deliver orations is not necessary. Industry and honesty, which are easier than Idleness and dishonesty, will achieve success for any man of ordinary ability. • Success Is easier, than failure. Success seldom comes at once; It is a matter of years of good conduct «i»rl intellia-pnt work.— Atchlson Globe. The wild white sheep is found nowhere in the world but in Alaska, and few specimens for mounting whole have ever been obtained.
