CALAVERAS COUNTY- Citizen, San Andreas, February 34, HUM A recent telegraphic dispatch states that Robert 'White-side of Duluth, Minnesota, • has practically purchased the Calaveras Big Treo ! Grove, having paid the company owning tho forest $1000 for an . option of ', ninety days. The price asked for the grove, which consists of 3800 acres, is $100,000. Mr. Whiteside has already purchased 5000 acres of timber land west of the Calaveras grove and has bonded two other large tracts east and south of the Big Tree Park. A joint resolution was presented in Congress last week authorizing tbe Secretary of tbe Interior to open negotiations for the bonding of the Calaveras county groves of sequoi gigautea for a government park, and tho adoption of the resolution may prevent the completion of the deal for the sale of this timber land. Some encouragement has been received by the ladies of : the California Club, who are deeply interested in preserving the giant redwood forests of the State. A d...

TUOLUMNE COUNTY. New Era, Carters, February 23, 1900. ! The enterprising business men and property owners of . the eastern part of town are endeavoring to raise sufficient money for building sewers in that locality. That is a step in the right direction and should be encouraged. I Avis, the 8-year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Woodside,' of Sugar Pine, was taken to San Francisco last week by her parents and placed under tho medical attention of Dr. McNutt, who pronounced tbe little child entirely out of danger and says she vr ill completely recover from the effects of the carbolic acid which she mistakenly drank a few weeks ago. The saving of the child is due to the prompt and thoughtful parents and to Dr. W. H. Robertson, of Soulsbyville, to whom the - child was brought immediately after the accident occured.

Problem of Coal Supply in Naval Attack. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Problem of Coal Supply in Naval Attack. It is difficult to imagine what might, have happened if the American "Flying Squadron" had visited the coast of Spain. ; Imagine a fleet arriviug oif the enemy's coast with its ooal bunkers practically empty, and unable to coal at sea. The advantage would lie with the enemy, putting out from home ports with bunkers well rilled. The programme would be. of course, first to capture a base wrhero col liers could lie and warships have their bunkers replenished. lint tho capture of such a base might result in the loss of a ship, and, even though it did not, the campaign of attack would be hampered by the necessity of maintaining a defense of the colliers, especially against torpedo-boat attack. This point is made doubly important since the submarine torpedo-boat has proved a success. In contrast to this imagine that each collier is fitted to coal at sea and under headway as well. — The Engineering Magazine for February.

Food Preparation*. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Food Preparation*. Experiments by Dr. A. McGill of Canada show that much has yet to be done before final pronouncements can be made upon the food value, If any, of the flesh bases which in most instances form a chief portion of the nitrogenous material In meat extracts, the fact being that, as these bases certainly differ among themselves In food value, It is consequently true of the various forms in which proteid matter occurs In these preparations— viz, as peptones, proteoses, adds, albumens, etc. Dr. McGiU's experiments suggest that a part of the nitrogen tn some meat preparations exists as urea, the latter certainly having no food value. As to Its assumed value as a stimulant, Dr. McGill remarks that nature seems to have provided for the prompt elimination of urea from the system, it being also well known that any failure to get rid of It by way of the kidneys results in serious disturbance of the vital functions and may end in death by .uraemia. From the fact that no practical ...
Going- to Bed In India. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Going- to Bed In India. Going to bed in India Is a very different process from going to bed at home. To begin with, it Is a far less formal process. There Is no shutting the door, no cutting yourself off from the outer world, no going up stairs and finally no getting into bed. l'ou merely lie down on your bed, which, with Its bedding, Is so simple as to be worth describing. The bed is a wooden frame with -webbing laced across It, and each bed has a thin cotton mattress. Over this one sheet Is spread,. and two pillows go to each bed. That's mil!— Scottish American.
FOR THE FARMER [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
FOR THE FARMER The growth and decay of vegetation on and in the soil are yet, as In earth's earliest ages, the best means for fitting It for man's use. When vegetation decays. It always gives off carbonic acid pas, which is a more powerful solvent than water alone. If vegetation contains nitrogen, It Is a still more powerful solvent, says The American Cultivator, and will make mineral plant food soluble so that the roots of plants can take It up. All the earlier vegetation of the world was poor in nitrogen, but full of carbon absorbed through Its leaves from the atmosphere, then so overcharged with carbonic acid ; gas that none bnt the lowest forms of animal life was possible. After the ferns decayed bitter plants, such us the gsains, grasses and clover, could live and grow. Many a modern farmer who cannot grow clover finds that if he sows a field with some grain which has a' large seed It will furnish him enough carbonic add gas to liberate some ef the nitrogen and minerals which t...
Oats For Feed Ingr. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Oats For Feed Ingr. Oats for feeding should have an agreeable smell, clean, smooth and bright appearance and pleasant taste, should feel dry, hard and elastic to the touch and when broken between the teeth and should be fairly well supplied with flour, says The National Stockman. The fact that they fulfill these conditions will show that they have been well saved, are sufficiently old, possess a due amount of nutriment and have not Buffered from injurious Influences, such as damp and mold, as would be evident If they were musty in smell and dull in color. The presence of dust In oats proves that they have been badly saved and that their quality has undergone more or less deterioration. A shriveled up condition is also a sign of inferiority. With a plump variety of oats, if the grains feel heavy in the hand, rattle more or less like . shot when poured out, rebound when they fall on wood or other hard objects and show no tendency to stick together, our good opinion of their nutritive ...
Stupid Di»honcßtj. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Stupid Di»honcßtj. In speaking of the adulteration of dairy products former Governor Hoard of Wisconsin recently said: "The stupid dishonesty of the American policy has lost us an Immense foreign market. In 1880 we shipped to England $15,000,000 worth of cheese. Then we began to make 'filled' cheese, and in 1599 our export to England was $3,000,000 worth of cheese. Canada has laws that secure pure foods. She saw her opportunity and has taken tbe English market from us. She exported in 1599 $17,000,000 worth of cheese. The figures prove that sound ethics are good commerce. "Fraud results in loss of trade. What we want to do is to provide against counterfeits and gradually regain our trade. The value of the dairy products of the United States is $800,000,000 a year. Wisconsin produces $35,000,000 worth. When I was governor, I received many letters from chambers of commerce abroad, from Bristol and Glasgow, inquiring into the fraudulent cheese and butter we were sending abroad. The dai...
Growing; Tnrnlps. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Growing; Tnrnlps. At a recent farmers' Institute In New Brunswick one speaker told bow he succeeded in growing 1,000 bushels per acre. He took a poor piece of ground in the fall, and after be had plowed it he put on 30 tons of manure to the acre and harrowed it In. He wants no manure plowed in unless it is to be plowed up again in the spring, harrowed lightly and furrowed two feet apart about two Inches deep. In the furrows, he strewed 250 pounds of superphosphate to the acre. He uses two pounds of specially selected turnip seed to the acre. When they are two inches high, he thins them to 18 inches apart After this he keeps the. horse cultivator running two or three times a week between the rows. As he grows them principally as a succulent winter food for his stock, he sows early, that they may have time to grow.
Consciousness Daring; Anaesthesia. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Consciousness Daring; Anaesthesia. M. Philippe contributes an Interesting article to Le Revue Philosophique entitled "La Conscience dans l'Anesthesle Chirurgicale" (consciousness during surgical anaesthesia). In this article the author says that the evidence of both patients and surgical operators goes to prove that under the Influence of anaesthetics the patient does not lose his consciousness. In many cases also he suffers pain, but on waking he has no recollection of his experiences.
LOOKING INTO A SHOTGUN. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
LOOKING INTO A SHOTGUN. A Bandit's Victim Tells How It Feels to Be Held Up. "I happen to know how It feels to be held up," said a gentleman who now; occupies a position of prominence In local railroad . circles. "I acquired my experience as a passenger In a stagecoach about six miles from Tombstone, A. T., in 1884. . We bad a big load, six men inside, two on the. driver's seat and an express messenger oo the boot. Every man in the crowd had a revolver, two of the Inside passengers had Winchesters across their knees, and the messengrt- had an 8 bore dnck gun that contained nearly a quart of slugs. We were held up at about 4ln the afternoon by a single masked man, who rose suddenly from behind a pile of rocks and covered us with a 'sawed off shotgun. All the curtains were raised, so there was a fair view of the interior, and when he yelled 'Hands up!' everybody obeyed. "Then he told us to get out one by one and stand In a row, with our backs to him. ' I never hated to do anything so b...
COMPANY DINNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
COMPANY DINNERS. They Are Dreaded by Guests and Make tke Hostess Nervous. Writing on "Making Company of Guests," Edward Bok, in The Ladles' Home Journal, considers "It a curious fact that American housewives are so loath to believe that a dinner with fuss and \ feathers is dreaded by the vast majority of people. The highest compliment we can possibly show a guest at dinner is to let him partake of an ordinary meal, to let him come quietly in and 'be one of the family,' yet this Is the very compliment which we withhold from him. Instead of giving a guest what he would relish most we give him what he really enjoys least. "Let a hostess be ever so graceful and tactful, let there be years of experience on her shoulders, yet nothing can conceal from her guests that the dinner which she Is serving Is other than an unusual one. It is a formal affair, and no amount of grace can make anything else of it, for nothing speaks so lo.udly or so unerringly as a formal company dinner. Every course ...

Knaigro Eamci Lost His Wager. Miss Emma Eames has a brother, Harold, who was an ensign In the United States navy.

The wager was accepted, and a moment afterward Eames was In the water swimming toward his superior officer. Suddenly he paused, and, stopping his powerful overhand stroke, began treadIng water. Then he saluted precisely as if he had been on a quarter deck. To the young man's Intense surprise the commander returned the salute with equal gravity. Mr. Eames lost his wager.— Saturday Evening Post.
