TO PREVENT FOREST FIRES [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
TO PREVENT FOREST FIRES An Official Investigation to Be Made. TSET MADE HIM TAKE THE FOUR DOLLARS Ceylon Green Tea.— He Always Had to Stand When He Heard Beecher Talk. ■ 'Investigation of the causes, effects, and means of prevention of forest fires in . the West, will be carried on this ••iramer In Washington, Oregon, California,' Arizona, IV New Mexico,* Utah,* Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, South Dakota. Besides field 'study, designated chiefly to discover means of preventing the evil, the Division is making a historic record of all important tires which have occurred in the United States since 1754. Although yet incomplete, this indicates that the annual recorded loss by forest burnings in the United States is. at the very lowest, $20,000,000. It will probably run far above this sum, as the Pacific coast States have been [only partially examined. Accounts of over 5,500 disastrous fires have been obtained in the seventeen States already examined. Michigan,. Minnesota and Wisco...
A Fortunate Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
A Fortunate Mistake. "There is a young man in Chicago," says a local physician, "who now has a good business and bright prospects who received his start in life by securing $4 that did not belong to him. I hardly know under what to class the incident of obtaining the money. I will let tho story explain his actions. "This young man arrived in Chicago one day without funds, but with plenty of nerve and push. He wanted money to secure a meal and pay his room .rent until he could secure a position. Believing he could find some vaa,n whp would help him if he to(d his story in a straightforward manner, he entered a cigar establishment in Dearborn street. Ho was about to explain his condition and ask for assistance until he could get a position when, tbe proprietor looked up with a fierce scowl, 'He turned to his partner, and they held a consultation for a few moments. 'Now, take this $4 and don't bother me about that bill again. That's all you will get, and now you can get out of this pla...

In' the Canadian Northwest. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
In' the Canadian Northwest. That evening I dined at the hotel, sitting next to a Bishop in orthodox Episcopal garb. At the next table was a quiet looking youth, who was heir presumptive to an English marquisate; another was in a very similar position, owing to a recent return among the killed and wounded in South Africa. The Bishop, if I may be allowed to use such a disrespectful expression, was chortling. He was doing it softly and unobtrusively, but he was undeniably ticklod. The . night before he had found himself alone in a Pullman with a prominent rancher and a Japanese student from an , American university. They had read all their papers, talked themselves hoarse, and the rancher suggested a game of whist. To get a fourth they enlisted the services of the colored porter on tbe car. "The porter played a remarkably fine rubber," said his lordship f gleefully; "the Jap had only 1 " played • twice before, but he picked it up in the most wonderful mann c r; but I wonder what they w...
Wooded Area of the U. S. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
Wooded Area of the U. S. The former official estimate of 'the wooded area of the United States, placed at 2fi per cent., has been raised to 37 per cent, by the latest computations of the Division of Geography and Forestry of the TJ. S. Geological Survey. That office has issued a bulletin containing new figures on American forests, some pf vvhioh tend to prove tho national timber resources greater than is supposed. The two latest States to be examined are Oregon and Washington. The former is estimated to contain 234,653 million feet, B. M., in standing timber; the latter, 114,778 million feet. Destruction by fire has been exceedingly serious in Washington. On the assumption, that the burned areas contained on an average as much limber as the untouched portion, 40,00Q naUlion feet have been destroyed since lumbering began, This amount would supply all the sawmills of tbe United States for two years, and at a value of only 75 cents a thousand, means a dead loss to the State of $30,000,...

MISCELLANEOUS. " I found your medicine a blessing to me and my family." There are women who feel something like a grudge against the children, who, one after another rob their mother of her beauty and strength. Men do not usually realize how much the mother gives to each child to her own loss. Women accept it as part of the obligation of Nature and pay the debt grudgingly. Yet in Nature's plan every child ts a new joy and fresh happiness, git isn't the children that . steal the - mother's strength. It is the unnatural drains and pains which weaken her. Every woman who has used Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription has found in it the one thing woman has waited for. It stops the drains, heals inflammation and ulceration, makes the baby's advent a pleasure and his life a blessing. No opiates or narcotics are contained in " Favorite Prescription." " I read what your medicine had done for other people," writes Mrs. Edwin H. Gardner, Box 70, Beechwood, Norfolk Co., Mass., "so thought I would...

ANGLOPHOBIC HYSTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
ANGLOPHOBIC HYSTERIA. Fresno Republican: -"I want nothing to do with that * nation of robbers .and murderers, unless it be to join the other nations. of the earth in a- notice to England that she ..must close her career of piracy, must pull down her black flag, and withdraw her armed forces from all her colonies "and allow them to be free."' So says Pettigrew,;the hysterical, speaking of England, the only nation' on earth whose colonies are already free. One can imagine the amusement with which this fervid offer -of revolutionary assistance would be read in Canada, Australia, or by any. intelligent resident of any English colony in the world. It is high time that such nonsense ceased to play its role in American political discussiou. England is not America; her ways are not as our ways, her ideals not as our ideals, and we think, and doubtless rightly think, that our ways and ideals are far better. But England is uot the arch-fiend, the international ogre. On the contrary, England i...
