Bather * Discouraging. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
Bather * Discouraging. For several weeks our liverymen have made more money without business than with it ; that is to say, they have lost money every time they have sent out a team. The abominable condition of the roads has caused them no end of worry and expense. Not long since Mr. Newman sent. a team and driver to lone, and instructed him to bring back a few sacks of barley. En route home he actually pulled his vehicle in two and came 'in with the horses and harness. Mr. Newman then hitched to a stout buckboard and went himself for the load that had been left in the mud. He loaded up and started for Jackson, but had not proceeded far before the hind wheels and fore wheels of the buckboard were divorced. He had mot the same fate that befell his driver — he- had pulled his wagon in two. Other liverymen of the county have had similar and even worse things to contend with.

Tho children, eager for a ride, hung on to various parts of the vehicle, as is the unfortunate custom of children the world over, just to be jogged along a rod or two. The little girl in question lost her cape, and while trying to recover it before the wagon wheel ran over it, lost her balance and fell in front of the wheel. She scrambled to get out of the way and did succeed in part, thus escaping, probably, instant death. But, alas! she was caught; her left arm being crushed above the elbow ; and the instep of one foot crushed." Dr. Lonigo was called and attended to the little sufferer. The child, we understand, is a cripple, and doubtless this hampered her movements when trying to escape the...

Railroad Material. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
Railroad Material. It will 'be interesting, at least, in view of the now assured coming of the railroad .to Jackson, and other towns of Amador- county, to know something of the vast quantities of material that will be required to build this road.
