AN OLD TIME EMIGRANT SHIP. ACROSS THS ATLANTIC ON A ' BbACKBAbk WINiR Bad luck to the Joseph Walker And the day she did set sail; Likewise to Mr. Tapscott And his dirty yellow meal. —From an old shunty th.it sailors used to sing In the packet ships forty years ago. Standing upon the pier at Birkenhead and looking across over the glassy surface of the Mersey toward the Princess dock, the eye couldn't help but see a handsome looking, freshly tarn-d and newly painted full-rigged ship swinging lazily to her anchor in the river. Her yards were braced square and the cotton sails upon them were neatly stowed with bunts as smooth as the round bottom of a sailor's bag, and the yardarm gaskets were passed : harbor fashion and as close as the seizing cm a mainstay. . • The tide was on the flood, and yrt there wasn't a ripple on the water save where it • THE ISAAC WEBB OUTWARD BOUND.

FORT FRAYNE BY CAP! CHAS. KltiC. All the morning it had been threatening snow, and now it was sifting slowly down, but presently the flakes fell thicker and thicker, and then in a dense cloud that soon shut out even the crest ahead of them. Captain Leale, a calm, thoughtful battalion commander, picked out certain level headed sergeants and sent them, with a few men each, out to the right and left front and Hank, so as to euard against sur prise, and then as the men danced about in the snow and sparred or wrestled laugh ingly, many and many were the conjec tures as to the cause of the halt and delay. "What are we waiting for? Why don't we pitch in?" were the queries that passed from lip to lip, and many were the inquiring glances toward the little group of officers smoking and talking, and chaff ing Ormsby at the head of the column. With an Indian village barely a mile away, an Indian fight probably not an hour ahead, the Twelfth was taking things as coolly as befitted the season, an...

A STUDY IN PRIMITIVE VEGETATION Down in the ravine, an hour or so ago, with • c rootlets in the water and ender black stems swinging in the wind, I found a bunch of maidenhair. I almost hesitate to tell of it, lest 1 be the innocent means of turning the fern hunters loose upon this devoted neighbor hood. A pair of these worthies knocked at my door one day last summer armed with boxes and trowels. -Is there any maidenhair fern in this canyon?" asked one. Answered in the affirmative they turned without another word and left me, itonished to remonstrate. Later I saw them grubbing away, along the stream, ap parently quite unaware that they were en croaching upon private rights. As they were hunting in the wrong direction, how ever, for the treasure they sought, I let them alone and they pottered about till nearly dusk without doing any one any harm or themselves any good. The city dweller seems to have a partic ular predilection for brakes and fern?. Possibly because they know well that...

My mother was a pretty old lady and she used to tell me that .Toy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla would make her lift her leg much higher than she could so lift her leg when she was not taking the medicine."

CLOVERDALE CITRUS CXTLTTTRF. A Clergyman Commits Suicide by Hanging Himself in a Shed at Ukiah. FRESNO, Cax., April 7.— The Danes of this city gave a ball last night, and when the festivities were at their height Bitlo Toepfer went to the ballroom, supposedly with the intention of shooting a man whom he says had induced Mrs. Toepfer to leave him. He did not find the man. Drawing a revolver, he said to the by- Etanders, "Do you want to see me do it?" and holding the weapon within a few inche. c of his breast, he fired before any one could interfere. The bullet went through the left lung end out at the shoulder blade. Toepfer dropped to the floor calling for his wife. An examination of the wounds show that they are not necessarily fatal. Toepfer is well off. Some time ago his wife began proceedings...

2 THRIFTY PETALUMA. One of the Prosperous Towns of the Bay Region. WIDE AWAKE AND ALIVE Manufacture and Commerce Go Hand in Hand With Progress. SOME LEADING BUSINESS MEN. Schools, Churches and a Public Library Well Supported by the Citizens. PETALUMA, April 7-— Petaluma on the map. Petaluma, the name of a town called out by the trainmen, is about all many Sun Franciscans know of this thriving neighbor over the bay. Petaluma is just a short ride iij. the North Pacific Railroad, by way of Tiburon, or by water on the cheery little steamer Gold, which makes daily trips to and from San Francisco up Petaluma River. This town should be known and appre ciated. Its advantages of healthful ev-en climate, water transportation and the con sequent low rates of travel and freight have brought an energetic population to Peta luma and its vicinity. A large number of factories are in active operation, running almost at full force in spite of the general depression- throughout the country. The suburb...

4 REVIEW OF REAL ESTATE Gradual Improvement Being Accomplished in Every Direction. BUILDING CONTINUES BRISK Enterprise of Wealthy Citizens In Building and Other Opera tions Felt. The outlook for real estate during this season is somewhat of a task to predicate, but from statistics, and the general pros perity of our people, it appears to be of the most encouraging nature. The enterprise of ouj wealthy citizens in launching a rail road and building up and making costly improvements, the erection of homes by our mechanics and citizens of lin.ited means which seems to be on the increase, will in the circulation of money from these sources, in addition to an enhancement of value, have a most beneficial effect. Many of the owners of large city and country properties are people who came to this coast with very limited means or no mean? at all, made their money and know no other country or State outside of Cali fornia. They have every confidence in the iuture. and are content to w:iit for ...

The second annual 100-mile relay race of the California Associated Cycling Clubs ' ■was run around the bay yesterday by the ■wheelmen of Oakland.

The race was hotly contested throughout and replete with accidents, while the time made is wonderfully fast and showed great speed and endurance on the part of the riders. It is only in the past three years that the wheelmen of this State have interested themselves in interclub relay racing. The first move in this direction was made in i 1893, when the Acme Club of Oakland and j the Bay City Wheelmen of this city con gested in a 100-...
