I always love to come into rough and hearty old Cornwall Physically it has two interesting aspects, the moorland, mineland interior barrenness and the weird and wondrous coastwise scenic glory. The moorlands stretch dolorously as if in boundless loneliness. The tors or hills bleak and bare. The whole face of nature seems torn and scarred as if by tre mendous elemental struggles. Yet all these caverns and chasms which disfig ure it were made by the hand of man. Its ■ die, shale and slate hide copper, tin md iron.

8 PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. Men and Women Who Know How to Enjoy Life, Yesterday.. Dual Celebration by Sac ramento Granee—lt Was Carried Out "In Duo Form." Yesterday's reunion of Sacramento Grange was one of the occasions that makes the outside guest feel that he "wants to be a Granger and with the Grangers stand"-—or, to be more correct, with the Grangers eat. It was a doubly pleasurable occasion that filled the Grange Hall in this city yesterday with such an assemblage of intelligent, prosperous, happy, well clothed and (apparently) well-Jed men, women, girls, boys and babies. In the first place, it was the twenty-filth anni- j versary of the founding ot the Patrons of Husbandry in California; and secondly, it was the ninetieth anniversary of the birthday of Brother Rufus Davenport, ihe venerable Chaplain of Sacramento Grange. Eitiier of these events would hay* been sufficient to call out a goodly gathering of noble grangers, but thoir combination was r-'mply irresistible. If there are...

Police Judge Cravens threw a small sized bombshell into the camp of the all night saloon-keepers Saturday. A number of cases were on the calen dar of the Police Court of saloon men who were arrested for violating the mid night-closing ordinance pa«sed by the Trustees sometime ago. As tho readers of the Record-Union are aware, the Trustees at their last session passed a new Old]nance, providing that any one, whether or not conducting an eating house, might receive a special license to iteep their places open after midnight, upon payment of $10 in addition to tho regular quarterly license of $45. The attorney for the arrested saloon men appeared in the Police Court Satur day and asked that the cases be dis missed, on the ground that all of the de fendants either had applied or would ap oly immediately for the special license, ...

YESTERDAY'S ELECTION. The Reform Ballot System a Complete Success. All the Republican Candidates Elected —Some "E_re_lous Blunders Mado by Voters. The first election under the reform ballot law in Sacramento was held yes terday. As a test of the law it was a com plete success. The Boards of Flection in all of the precincts bear testimony to the excellence of the system, and the com plete bar it is to the old-time disgraceful practices indulged in by rounders, re peat* ra and the servitors of the venal ele ment in politics. The ticket peddler was completely un done—his "business" was busted, so ex ploded that he will never again be able to engage in it. The operation of the law so emphatically showed tl:e usele.ssness of that individual's calling that he will not bo able to graft himself again upon the political system. The strikers, cappers, opium fiends and rounders, who have heretofore turned | pennies in serving the bosses, were hard j put to. The best left them was to till u;<...
