A New Mosquito. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 February 1900
A New Mosquito. Newark has a new breed of mosquitoes. This appalling intelligence is gleaned from one of the papers published in that city. .ThuHe new mosquitoes are not to be kept out of houses by any of tho screens now in use. They are so small that they get into tho T rooms of the unhappy residents of tho flourishing "city on the Passaic river and bite them with the ferocity hitherto unknown even in tho State which is famous for its mosquitos. The doctors are .trying to comfort the people by telling them" that these mosquitos will eat malaria germs with more avidity than the ordinary New Jersey breed, but the people are not satisfied. Some of them are declaring that their Board of Health ought to do something about it. Just how the Board of. Health can constantly take action looking toward the extermination of any insect which will eat the germs of malaria is not explained. — New York Times. •'•I had dyspepsia for years.'

Must Be Respected. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 February 1900
Must Be Respected. Nearly $200 in ten cent subscriptions has been raised in Cleveland, Ohio, for the purpose of beantifying the grave of Moses Cleveland, the founder of the city. The plan is to buy the property in which the Cleveland family is buried and to place an iron railing around it and plant flowers in the plot. The grave is in an abandoned cemetery in Canterbury, Conn., which is neglected to such an extent that sheep graze among the tombstones and cattle wander about the place unmolested. — New York Tribune.

When a woman. feels that the responsibilities and duties of wif ehood and motherhood have become irksome to her — a burden and trouble rather than a source of uplifting and inspiration— it shows that there is some deficiency in her physical .make-up; some abnormal and unhealthy condition of the delicate and important special ■tructure of womanhood.

SENATOR THOS. R. BARD. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 February 1900
SENATOR THOS. R. BARD. Governor Perkins no longer carries the United States Senatorial burden all alone. He has a running mate who is expected to share equally the honors and the duties. California will now be represented in the United States Senate bytwo able men instead of one. The whole State should rejoice at the happy termination of a long and bitterly contested fight for a successor to Stephen M. White. The agony is over; the pipe of peace has been passed from lip to lip, eloquent speeches have been made and everything is lovely in the Republican camp. Thomas R. Bard was born in*Chambersburg, Franklin county, Pa., December 8, 1841, the son of Robert M. Bard, an attorney of wide practice and acknowledged ability. He is of Scotch-Irish descent. The advent of his ancestors to this country dates back to 1745. They were among the earliest of Pennsylvania settlers, and took a prominent, part in the struggles of this country for independence. When the Civil War broke out Mr. Bard was...
THE KENTUCKY SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 February 1900
THE KENTUCKY SITUATION. 'f The Dark and Bloody Ground," is always exhibiting some eccentric phase of social or political life. Today, the Nation stands aghast at a crime that is in no sense American. Senator Goebel, the defeated candidate for Governor of Kentucky, and a contestant for the office, before the legislative Returning Board, was shot down, in a cowardly manner, by a hidden assassin. Every American, worthy of the name, deplores the event and wishes speedy retribution to overtake the cowardly miscreant who contrived and executed the dastardly outrage. Blind passion frequently produces appalling crime, but the cold and stealthy execution of a murder for the promotion of any cause is odious to all good citizens. This crime is abhorrent, cowardly in execution, and should obtain no indulgence from any quarter. The political situation in Kentucky is serious. Governor Taylor, who was elected by the people, and seated by a Democratic Returning Board, has had to face a determinatio...
GEOLOGY OF RIVER CHANNELS [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 February 1900
GEOLOGY OF RIVER CHANNELS The Great Kiver Channel of THE FAMOUS DEPOSITS OF WEALTH IN THEM ibis Great Gravel Bed, the Channels and Drifts Bon North and South. JOHN A. FAULL The great majority of gold is very fine. Occasionally there are found large boulders, but one main channelbreak is found at Dutch Flat. Here we have a sudden change, first the alluvion deposits, then a series of gravel and bouldera of greater or ' less magnitude called the surface wash; the second wash contains what, is known as pumpkin seed gold, a very heavy deposit of quartz boulders, some of which weigh fifty tons; in some "of these boulders gold has been found. From this it has been reasoned that quartz Is the mother of gold, yet nine-teen-twentietbs of all the gold taken from our river beds and channels has been froe, angular and rough, some times, but very rarely, scaley. In the surface earth tho alluvial, which has been found Is a little flakey but none of the quartz gold shows anything like the gravel go...

'.'Well, '.'/said the • honest President, with just' the least bit in the world of humor; : "I'll tell you what I'll do; I'll split the difference and say nothing about it. MIRTHFUL IRONY, j; Judge Baldwin* an old and highly respectabie gentleman, solicited a pass outside the Union lines to see a brother in Virginia, but being refused, finally obtained an interviow with Lincoln and stated his case. "Have ypu applied to General Halleck?'! inquired the President. f'And met with a flat refusal," said Judgß B. "Then you must see btanton," continued the President. "I have, and with the same result," was the reply. "Wull, then, " said the President, with a smile of good humor, I can do nothing, for you must know that I have very little influence with this Administration." UNSELFISH PATRIOTISM. . ....
