Comb and Scissors' Combined. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Comb and Scissors' Combined. A new hah? cutting implement, combining the comb and scissors, is for the convenience of the barber, and it is claimed for this tool that it greatly fa-^ cilitates the operation of cutting or trimming the hair and f urthermore cannot pull the hair, as do frequently the scissors and the clippers which it displaces. This device includes in its construction a pair of scissors, the lower blade being provided with a comb which in operation is next to the head. By its use the thorough distribution of the hair strands over the cutting edge is assured and the hah? evenly cut. To sharpen or clean the blade it is simply necessary to detach a screw and swing the comb outward the proper distance so as to easily reach the blade with a whetstone or the like. NEW TOOL FOR BARBERS.
Healthful lan. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Healthful lan. The 'American Academy of Railway Surgeons is moving in the direction of making railroad cars more healthful. It long has been felt by. tne profession that refqrmj in "the hygiene of railway travel' is' imperatively needed, and the new movement promises to be both active and effective. It is .shown that the material -used in furnishing railway coaches— plushes and velvet cushions, woolens and draperies of every kind— afford the best possible nest for the protection and preservation of germs, and they are also the most difficult to clean. It is now recommended that cars be finished and furnished with a smooth surfaced material, like, hardwood or leather, which, while capable of being quickly cleaned, will lend itself, to the most tasteful arrangement. Not only should plush, velvet and drapery be almost entirely done away with, but there should be less embossing and carving in the ornamentation of the cars. The tendency in this country in the matter of decoration is to e...
The Fox. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
The Fox. Everybody knows that a fox's tall Is in hunting parlance his brush, but few perhaps know further that his scalp Is technically a "mask," or, if he is superlatively game, it Is torn off. nailed on the kennel door of the pack in at bis death and marked with . three crosses to show that he died only at the end of a ringing n*. The brush, of course, goes to whoever is nearest when it Is taken. ' The trophy nest In value Is the right forefoot— in hunting phrase, "pad thief." The left fo*refoot, "pad lnino," ranks next; after it. the hind feet, "the pegs, which only very young or very avid hunters care much to claim. One amazing thing regarding the vixen— the she fox — is that no dog will follow her trail' while she carries young. . It is uncertain whether she then leaves no scent or whether the dogs obey some primal instinct In passing over her track. A certain consideration for the female is apparent in most of the canine species. One of the surest signs of rabies is for a dog ...
Should foal Give Out? [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Should foal Give Out? What then? Are we utterly dependent upon coal, so that the wheels of industry will stop and the forests be consumed for fuel when coal gives out? Of course not. It is an idle fear. Already we have the beginnings of a new method of utilizing natural energy which will prove enormously more effective than coal ever has been and will be practically inexhaustible to whatever extent industry may expand. Electrical energy developed by water power will run the world's industries, furnish its light and heat and be the universal substitute for all forms of combustion methods. Water power is practically unlimited, and it will be utilized more and more In proportion as the need for it arises and as its use becomes at different places aud .it successive periods cheaper than coal. The substitution will proceed gradually'until, when the coal supply finally is exhausted, nobody will have anything more than a curious or academic Interest in the matter, and probably not a ripple...
ICEBERGS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
ICEBERGS. No port lamps gleam along our sides. No banners float on high; No human lookout raises glass To scan our sea or sky. No admirals above our deck! SjVfly Hid guns and gunners stand, - In hidden sheath to send the sound Of warlike, stern command. Tet all the navies of the world Our bows in vain assail; We fear no smoking battle tower That thunders through the gale. By captains gray our path is marked. By- Bailors white and old; For us the phantom rockets glare. And phantom bells are tolled. In misty, unremembercd ports i Our beacon lights were set By hands long gone from mortal view. By forms that men forget. ■;•' t And we may wander on our course Till time at end shall be, For in our breasts arc locked the hulls Of ships once lost at sea. —John James Median in Criterion.

AMERICAN DIAMONDS, [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
AMERICAN DIAMONDS, . — , Studies by the Geological Survey of Canada. : The dissemination of information regarding the lake diamonds through the region of the moraine, says Popular Science Monthly, should serve the twofold purpose of encouraging search for the buried stones and of discovering diamonds in the little collections of "lucky stones" and local curios which accumulate on the clock shelves of country farmhouses. When it is considered that three of the largest diamonds thus far found In the. region remained for periods of 7, 8 and 1G years respectively in the hands of the farmIng population, it can hardly be doubted that many other diamonds' have been found and preserved as local curiosities without their "real nature being discovered. ■' : ' . If diamonds should be discovered in the moraines of eastern Ohio, of \vest-. em Pennsylvania or of western New York, considerable light would thereby be thrown unon the problem of locating the ancestral borne. More important than this,...
Hard Drinkers In Chile. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 March 1900
Hard Drinkers In Chile. i Iqulque, Chile, has the reputation of ' consuming more liquor per capita than j any other place In the world. . I have never seen liquor of all kinds . consumed in . such quantities. as here, ] but apparently, there is very little \ drunUenuess. The dry atmosphere and j the atoms of suud that one is constantly Inhaling excite an abnormal thirst. no doubt, aud they say that the human ' system requires an unut^ial amount j of stimulant to sustain the heat and ! fatigue of this climate. 1 urn quite sure that this duty is not neglected. Judging by the extraordinary excesses which are witnessed without comment daily and hourly at every club and ho- Half a dozen cocktails before breakfast- one man at Iquique is said to require I" to start his machinery in motion— a bottle or Scotch or Irish whisky at breakfast, anotlier at lunch, wines and cordials at dinner, brandy and soda every now and then during the day, alternating with- copious and frequent drafts of beer ...

CALAVERAS COUNTY [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900
CALAVERAS COUNTY- Echo, Angels Camp February 28, 1900. A certain expressman in Angels greased his axles the other day preparatory to going to San Andreas to remove the county seat to Angels. If he doesn't drink more than a quart of coffin varnish on the way he will be apt to get the hall of records here by Friday night, and being a seven-day adventist he will rest on Saturday and sober up preparatory to bringing the court room and jail over on Sunday. If hay is anywhere handy on the route be may feed his team up and not get there till early on Monday. He will then enter upon the work of bringing over the hospital and graveyard thereto belonging. The county officers, will, of course, walk over sometime during the week and hunt up suitable quarters to reside in. The courthouse and all the other buildings pertaining to the county seat will be erected in the blank '. space at Angels known as the "Toadetool" editor's mind, and a very desirable locality it is.
