A MAN SERIOUSLY BURNED WHILE BLASTING Two Calaveras Boys, Who Are Mem bers of the Police Force, Are Heard of. • EL DORADO COUNTY. Republican, Placerville, February Ist. In the trial of John E. Sexton last week for extortion, the case went to the jury on Thursday without argu ment and they returned a verdict of guilty after being out about an bionr and a half. The evidence was at first regarded as very weak • against Sexton, but the statements he had made before the Grand Jury apparent ly satisfied the jury of his complicity in the case. Sexton's attorneys are getting out an application for a new trial. A. L. Frost, City .Treasurer of Sac ramento and an old resident of El Dorado county, has been visiting Placerville recently.

A FEW SCIENTIFIC NOTES The Explosive Force of Gun Powder. THE SEVERAL METHODS OF ROCK-DRILLING An Interesting Paragraph on Specific Gravity of Solids. How to Obtain It. Gun powder has an explosive force of about eighteen tons per square inch, when confined. In ordinary quarry ing or blasting, a cubic yard of solid rock in place, requires from one-quar ter to three-quarters rock; tho re quirements vary from one to two pounds to tho cubic yard. Tunnels and shafts where the resistance of the confining walls overcomes, a largo part of the force exerted from two to six pounds aro required to break a cubic yard. It is usual to allow about one and one-forth pounds of powder to each foot in depth of a two-inch drill-hole. A four-inch hole requires five pounds to each foot in depth for effective breaking up of the surrounding rock. These figures apply only to gun pow der, and not to other high explosives. ROCK-DRILLING. Holes for blasting aro usually made from two to four feet deep, and may ...

Established November i, 1855. THE ACTION OF GLACIERS Its Relation to The Precious Metal. GREAT GRAVEL BEDS PASS THROUGH THE SIERRA Many Side Channels of Fine Gravel Carry Gold in Faying Quantities Covered by Clay, etc. JOHN A. FAULL That our mountains were at 6ome period of geological history much higher than they are how, no observ ing man can deny. . There is good rea son to believe thit the average height was at least equal to the highest peak to-day. For proof we have but to look at Mount Shasta and its glacier in our own State; the three sisters — Mt. McLaughlin, Mt. Baker 'and Mt. Ramier — in Oregon and Washington as well as the idol of Oregon, Mt. Hood, and lesser heights along this great mountain chain. This might be added to the first chapter. Gold is a very soft metal, and when carried any distance is often reduced to scales, as we find It at Gold Bluff. Here we have an ocean hydraulic breaking in the gravel bluff for three miles upon Its front, and bringing down thousands...

THE EXPERIMENT STATION, Inspector C. H. Shinn Speaks of the Im- provements. Inspector Charles H. Shinn made a visit to this town recently and was in teviewed for the Ledger. Mr. Shinn said: "The Experiment Station has been improving steadily for several years past, and is well worth a visit from farmers, and all persons in terested in the foot-hill region. The latest addition to tho Station novolties is a pair of thoroughbred Persian sheep of the Bayazit breed of Astrach ans, imported for the United States government by Minister Bealo some years ago. A pair of the original im portation were obtained for the Paso Robles Station, and the stock has been propagated there ever since. The June-bred lambs of these sheep furnish the true 'Astrakhan' which is worth about fifteen dollars to the skin, and is in great demand. No part of California is better adapted to these sheep than the Sierra foot-hills. Persons having flocks of sheep, and desirous of intro ducing this new blood, will bo all...

MAKING OF ARTESIAN WELLS - •■ flow and Where They May Be Found. THE PROCESS Of OIL WELL BORING EXPLAINED The Drills and Other Implements Used Are Carefully De- An artesian well is one where an un interupted flow of water pom's out of a vertical hole, sunk usually in some valley, where tho rock inra rises above the level of the valley on each side. They are so named from the province in France, where they -first came into notice. The importance of these wells cannot be over estimated, as it is possible in many places, to reclaim partially arid tracts by tapping tho saturated stratum, hundreds and sometimes thousands of feet below the surface. The condition of rock formation that makes possible such a well, is found where a porous or water bearing- bed of rock, sand or gravel lies between two strata of imper vious. material, such as slate or clay, or granitic or other metamorpbic rock, with the rim or edges, . cropping out in higher altitudes. Sometimes the rock formation forms a basi...

Mind and Body. Hoit Mental Snß-sestlons Mar Be ' .

There can be little doubt that the sympathetic physician is the one best calculated to lead his patient to recovery. Again, In many diseases the good that may be wrought to the sufferer by the agency of mental suggestion is undeniable. Professor J. M. Baldwin, 'referring to this fact In connection with insomnia, says: "In experimenting upon the possibili ty' of ' suggesting sleep to another , I have found certain strong reactive, in fluences upon my own mental condi tion. Such an effort which ' Involves the picturing of another as asleep is a strong auto-suggestion of sleep, taking effect in my own case In about five minutes if the conditions be kept con stant.
