The order had been dreaded for weeks, and when It came the young wife, who was to be left In a Brooklyn flat with a baby nnd a colored servant, was In despair.

A BeKgor'i Reasoning. First Beggar— Why didn't you tackle that lady? She might have given you something. Second Beggar— I let her go because I understand my business better than you.

This profession has to be studied. Just like auy other, if you es p«'&lt;-i lo make a success of it. See?— Harlem Life.

Not Quite What She Meant. A very stout lady while out walking In a certain part of Edinburgh came to a gateway which appeared to be the entrance to a private road. Not being certain, however, she asked one of two mossenjK'r boys who were standing at the entinsKc whether she could gt'T through tin- };:i!«'\vny or not.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
Chauncy M. Depew et al, are, or have been, trying to put McKinley on the track for the third term, but if there, is anything more than another that characterizes McKinley it is his pre-em-inent common sense. Considered merely as a politician, he is probably the shrewdest who has ever figured in American politics. But there is more than the shrewd politician about McKinley. He is really a man of loyal and delicate impulses, with selfcontainment and modesty leadingconstituents in his character. He has served his people eight years, and has served them well. He will now retire to private life at the end of his present term. As stated in these columns last week, the only reason why San Diego has not a road leading toward the east is the fact that there are too many who are always waiting for an opportunity to throw cold water on any progressive enterprise. The people are ready for the road, and the time for action is certainly here. Delay only causes lukewarmness, and if the citizens of...
THE RAILROAD PROPOSITION [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
THE RAILROAD PROPOSITION Elsewhere in this paper is an article from the San Diegan-Sun of the 14th setting forth the views of some of San Diego's business men concerning railroad conditions in that city. Evidently too much has been made public that should have been kept within the four walls of the committee room until all important factors had been brought into perfect harmony.

INCREASING YIELD OF GOLD [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
INCREASING YIELD OF GOLD From Western Graphic. It is fortunate, in view of the multiplication of all sorts of bonds, stocks, debentures, and instruments calling for yearly, semi-yearly, or quarterly interest or dividends, that the production of gold, the only basic metal since the adoption of the single standardi is increasing at such a prodigious rate. The Director of the United States Mint says that the yield of gold for the current year will be upwards of ninety millions of dollars in the United States alone. This, was as much as the yield of the whole world for the year 1890. It is not too much to assume that the world is now producing gold at the rate of four hundred million dollars per annum. Should South Africa resume production, this large sum would probably rise to five hundred millions, and the mind is simply bewildered at the possibilities of the future. It is estimated that the total amount of the yellow metal employed in coinage is four thousand millions, with about an ...

HUGH TEVIS DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
HUGH TEVIS DEAD The death of Hugh Tevis, says the Western Graphic, will shock many people in California who read the other day of his marriage to Miss Baxter, of Deliver, under circumstances which would ordinarily augur long life and happiness. However, wealth and youth are not guarantees of either, and the multi-millionaire has to take his chances with the beggar. The fact is that the rich man is far more exposed to death than the common tramp, especially since the physicians have exploited that dread desease known as appendicitis from which, it is said, Hugh Tevis died. The practice is to throw the patient on a table, rip him open and cut his appendix, and be d — d to him. Only the very rich are sub^ jected to this process, which is one point, and a strong one, in favor of the longevity of the poor. During the past few years John W. Mackey, young Hobart and Hugh Tevis, amongst others, have been treated to this expensive and dangerous process. The attending physician tried to make ...
OPPOSED TO DELAY [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
OPPOSED TO DELAY Views Expressed by Some San Diego Business Men The Committee's Decision to Go Slow is Not Approved— San Diego Has Been Going Slow too Long Under the above caption the San Diegan-Sun of the 14th comments upon the railroad condition in the Bay city ss follows: The sentiment among the members of the general committee, regarding the want of action on the part of the sub-committee and their request for an extension of time, is almost unanimously in favor of. going slow, but this is not true among business men who are not members of the general committee. They deplore the want of action on the part of the sub-commit-tee and the confirmation of that course by the general committee, and believe that good results might be accomplishby more vigorous action. A number of the merchants have expressed themselves very forcibly on the matter. M. W. Jenks, when asked what he thought of the postponement of action said: "I am very much opposed to delay and am somewhat chagrined at the...
Editors Have Serious Trouble [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 22 June 1901
Editors Have Serious Trouble Editors have troubles like less distinguished folk. One of these who presides over the destinies of a Southern California newspaper is mourning the loss of two subscribers. One wrote asking how to raise his twins safely, while the other wanted to know how he might rid his orchard of grasshoppers. The answers went forward by mail, but by accident he put them into the wrong envelopes, so that the man with the twins received this answer: "Cover them carefully with straw and set fire to it and the little pests, after jumping in the flames a few minutes, will be speedily settled." And the man with the grasshoppers was told to "give them castor oil and rub their gums with bone." A. T. Plathe has recently established his residence on land near Cameron lake. Dr. J. C. Blackington has established his residence on land four miles south from Imperial, and is hauling his supplies out from the railroad. Says the San Diego Tribune: Many people have not yet been able t...
