14 THE FARMERS' COLUMN Orchard and Apiary and How to Care for Them. SOME VALUABLE PRODUCTS. How Diversified Farming May Prove of Great Aid to the Culti vator. A. man always adds to the value of his farm when he improves the road leading to it. It seems to he a demonstrated fact that all vine> in California must eventually be on resistant roots. The Russian thistle is spreading over the country near Lancaster, and the authori ties of the State University are looking into the matter with a view of rinding a rem edy. Many who held dried apricots over from last season are intending to hold a while longer, expecting increased prices as a re sult of the recent frosts, which in some dis tricts greatly reduced the crop. Broomcorn now commands from Z)i to 6}£ cents per pound, according to quality. The corn is good for bogs and chickens, and the straw ought to be a profitable crop at the prices Bow prevailing. Seed can be purchased in Ban Francisco. A correspondent of the Fresno Repub lica...

Impressive Scenes at the Funeral. The Prayer Meeting— New Theories. The mystery that was born in the crime stained church on Bartlett street, and the monster who was its father are stili the topics that crowd all others in the public mind. Durrant is still regarded :>s the central figure in the awful crime, but there are many who believe that if he sinned he did not sin alone. The police are still toil ing indefatigably on this case that was celebrated before it was twenty-four hours old. The blood-st3ined tabernacle has been searched from foundation to roof for more evidence, but more was not found there yesterday.

8 GLEWS STILL LEAD. Continued from Fifth Page. Burrant is one of the men who are well known at this time, for a hundred investi gators have been prying into bis life and a thousand gossips have been toiling every thing they know, think or suspect con cerning him. As a result of all this, enough has been disclosed to show that he led what is called "a double life"; that is to say. he is a normal young man who has lived' as other young men. When in church he has been good, and when on tbe street at night he has sought, to overcome the world and experience life in all its phases. Bien who can gratify their appetites in the ea>y way of a night's frolic do not com mit such crimes as that which has ren dered Emmanuel Church a place forever tabooed; a building to be abandoned and nevermore used for the worship of God. We most look for a different type of man altogether. We must seek a man who has not lived light and easy in the world, but one whose instincts and appetites, dammed ■up by...

12 BLONDE HEEOES GONE. Novelists Complain That Modern Young; Men Are Dark Haired. Where lias the fair-haired laddie gone? A lady novelist, Writing to a contemporary, complains that the golden-haired youth is fast becoming extinct, and that heroes of fiction, to be true to nature up to date, must be endowed with dark locks. It was but a week or two ago that I com mented on the discovery made by an ob servant schoolmaster that red-haired boys were now comparatively rare, so we are presumably reaching an era when the Saxon type of man will no longer exist. This is regrettable from a picturesque point of view, but there seems little reason why the novelist should be exercised by the disappearance of the blonde male from our midst. It is my firm opinion that if the matter could be put to the vote it would be found that the majority of girls— who are, of course, the largest con sumers of fiction— the hero with soft, "doggy" brown eyes and blue black hair to insipid flaxen-polled and blue-...

14 AFFECTS THE LOTTERIES The New Law Is Cutting Into the Traffic in This City. ITS GENERAL APPLICATION. A Question as to Whether or Not It Includes the Telegraph Companies. That the recent laws passed by Congress and the local agitation of the subject are seriously damaging the lottery traffic in this city is plainly apparent. Those who engage in the business of selling tickets acknowledge this to be the fact ; those who cash the tickets have marked a de crease of the business which they did be fore, and people themselves who bought regularly of the delusive bit of paper rind fewer friends who join them in the risky enterprise.
