FIG CAPRIFICATION. Matters of Great Interest to Fruit- Growers. Paper Head by E. W. Ma9lln at the Marysville Fruit-Growers' Convention. E. W. Maslin, Secretary of the State Board of Trade, read the following inter esting paper before the Fifteenth State Fruit-growers' Convention, convened at Marysville, November 17th to 20th: "Thus we see that the flowers, which we vainly think are Born to blush unseen. And waste their fraerance on the desert air, though unvisited by the lord of creation, who boasts that they were made for him, have, neverthelesss, myriads of insect visitants and admirers, which, though *hey pilfer their sweets, contribute to their fertility." The question of fig capritication has been the all-absorbing topic of the day among the fig-growers in this State, and ■ specially since the introduction of the -ig wasp, BUutophaga psenes from Asia Minor, by means of which insect it was hoped that the fertilization of the Smyrna iig could be successfully accomplished. 1 liste...

6 BRITISH GYPSIES. Wakeman Once More On His Fa vorite Topic The Difference Between the Romany of America and That of Great Brit ain—The Nomads Are Ever "Wel come In Scotland and ln Wales—How Their Condition Is Improved in This Country. [Special Correspondence of RECORD-Usno-*. Copyright, 1891.] London, Eng., November IG, 1891. Having wandered among gypsies in America for more than a quarter of a cent ury, and for the past five years having given much time and attention to a study of the gypsies as I have found them in different parts of Ireland, Scotland and England, I feel that something like a sur vey of these British nomads, with a few points of contrast between them and their American brethren, would have interest to many American readers. At the outset I am forced to confess that my good friend, George Smith of Coal ville, is interested in gypsies in a vastly broader, nobler aud more evangelical way than myself. He seeks them out and finds them at their worst, and the worst of ...

A TEMPLE OF HYGEIA. She said s^e wanted one hundred dol- j __rs dreadfully. Many people do. But | Mrs. Miller expressed herself with an in- j tensity which left no doubt that in her : case there was something more than the • ordinary and general desire for this con venient sum of money. Her tone bore testimony to a fierce longing, her whole j iace was screwed into wrinkles by the vehemence of her feelings, and her feat ures gathered together in a bunch so that her mouth, nose and eyes had the effect of taking counsel with one another that ..hey might by their united powers taste, sniff or spy out the desideratum. But one hundred dollars to Mrs. Miller was a thing to be mentioned with a sigh of despair. She had not for years had so much money in her hands all at once. There was very little ready money afloat in all the town of Stebbinsville, the popu lar method being to exchange directly the actual goods of this world without resort ing to an intermediary handling of dol lars and cen...

Two prominent citizens were borne to their last resting-places yesterday in this city. These frequent processions to the city of the dead are potent reminders to tho members of the old guard that there is an end to all things earthly, and that each in his turn must expect to be sum moned at no distant day.

Hoffman and Spies, the Sac ramento battery, played with San Jose. Hodman pitched a fine game, but his error in the eighth inning gave the victory to Portland. The Californians could not gauge Camp's curves, and were therefore rather weak. Portland scored the first run on Kbright's error, a passed ball and Work's safe hit. In the third inning, Ebright was given a base on balls, and scored with Dooley on the lat ter-- homo run drive. In the eighth inning Qlenalvin and Work...

Monday: For North ern California—Scattering rains in the north ern and eastern portion; lair on the lower coast and in the southern portion. COMMON SENSE AND THE TRAF FIC ASSOCIATION. It is wonderful how much light is thrown upon business transactions by the exercise of a little common sense. The Stockton Mail says : The aims of the Traffic Association of San Francisco are n-presented a_ embracing al* that pertain* to the welfare of the State, whereas the benefit to the members of the association is the only purpose in view. The importers of merchandise are going to get lower freight rates, if t hey can ; but are they going to sell theif goods lor any less price on that account? There is a world of good common Bense in this suggestion, and tho answer to the Mail's question is found in the fact that the merchants do not now sell their goods ...

PHYSICAL CULTURE. It Will Be Introduced Into the Public Schools Soon. German Turners Ask the Board of Education to Try their Plan —The Swedish System. Physical culture in the public schools was one of the chief topics discussed by the City Board of Education at its regu lar meeting last night. While no definite action was taken the directors all agreed that physical culture would be a desirable addition to the cur riculum, and that it will eventually be adopted in the schools. The board is at present experimenting with the Swedish system, of which so much was said and written recently, and last evening the Sacramento Turn-Verein presented a communication requesting that the German system be also tried. There was also a delegation from the Verein present, several of whom ad dressed the board. WHY IT SHOULD BK.

6 FARM AND ORCHARD. Notes With Respect to Wood Ashes as a Fertilizer. _>o Not Grumble—The Japanese Lac quer Tree—Plant Acorns—The Cam phor Tree—Fruit Drying in Cali fornia—lnteresting Farm Notes. A ton of wood ashes contains a variety of plant food that serves to supply plants with all the important elements with the exception of nitrogen. Much of the value of ashes as a potash fertilizer is lost when the ashes are leached, but even the leached ashes contain a large share of lime and a fair proportion of phosphoric acid and potash. There are about 230 pounds of water in the dry, unleached ashes and COO pounds in the leached, and in buying the unleached ashes tbe haul ing of much of this large amount of water is avoided. The labor required to trans port ashes and apply them to the soil is one ofthe most expensive items in their purchase. The amount of lime in a ton of unleached ashes amounts to about 1,200 pounds, and in leached ashes to about 1,000 pounds. This lime is in a very ...
