UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. Berkeley Athletes Are Preparing For Hard Contesti. University of California, Peb- 1 ruary 28.— The track athletes of the 1 University of California will go east < next May to enter a triple meet with 1 Cornell and Columbia, and dual meets ' with Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Prince- i ton, and probably with Yale and Chi- ; ago, and to take part in the great annual games of the-' lntercollegiate Association at Chicago.

Among the athletes who are most likely to make the eastern- team are Track Captain William P.. Drum, whose year of service in the Philippines has not impaired his skill in the sprints ; Cadogan, the quarter-mile runner; Ben Bakewell. the hurdler; Hoffman, the pole- vaulter a...

SOUND EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

SOUND EXPLAINED. Based on the Result of Scientific Re- search. The subject of sound, presents some interesting topics for general consideration, and a few .words on one or two points may merit attention. The modern definition of sound is, that it is the effect produced on the auditory nerve by the vibrations of air. With this definition . in mind, the old question, "If there were no ear to hear, ■would there be any sound?" is easily answered: The vibrations would be present, but. all would be as silent as death. ... - Sound vibrations travel in air at a velocity of about 1090 feet per second. Rain or fog does not affect the velocity materially, but moisture does affect the intensity of the vibrations, because water is a better conductor than air, being more perfectly elastic. It is a common observation, that sound vibrations may be heard much more distinctly when the air is nearly saturated with moisture, just before a rain. So, people often prophesy rain, on such occasions, with re...

Going Barefoot. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

Going Barefoot. Going- barefoot is decidedly a natural propensity. In summer weather in many places j folk go barefoot from choice, and ' nothing delights children more than to have their pedal extremities divested of all clothing. This practice is coming more generally into vogue, and, though it has such disadvantages as an occasional thorn in the foot, it certainly promotes the health of the whole body aud gives the feet an opportunity of more natural growth. It is a fact that the tender feet of those who never expose them to hardship, but keep them housed all the jear round, are . direct causes of ill health, of colds, of weakness of the eyes, and many other minor troubles. To remedy this, many well-known medical men now advise their patients to go barefooted a little time every day, In their rooms, in the yard, or at the seaside for two or three hours when on the beach, or whenever they can without trouble. Those who cannot do this can take substitutes by washing the feet every ...

INDIA'S GREAT FAMINE Thousands Will Starve From Lack of Water. nmnr million acres of irrigated i unds The Boer War Occupying England's Attention and Treasure Is a Disadvantage to India. India is again confronted with the misery of a great famine and England, even with a disastrous war in South Africa upon her hands, will have to stretch forth a strong arm to help the suffering millions of i her ■ far eastern" peninsula. Over 50,000,000 souls are now reported to be affected by the famine, and with the famine area rapidly expanding. A London dispatch states that the sum of 98,700,000 will be expended on "relief works" anil that already over 3,000,000 persons are receiving relief. Water, or rather its lack, is the causo of the affliction. This year both the monsoons nod the winter rains failed and left the earth parched and dry for months.

THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

THE HOUSEHOLD. Decorating For Receptions— "SU-rer 'Bella". Mimic Portfolio—Ma*10m Glaeee. -Whether the decorations be few or many, let the position of every spray of, flowers or greens, every ribbon streamer, every ; strip of .bunting, be considered not only individually, but In connection with the entire scheme of decoration. Generally speaking, If bu{ little material for decoration Is to be osed it Is better to concentrate it In one/effective mass than to make It extend over'so large a space that no part of it can be made effective. Thus the Bowers may all be given to the large table, the smaller ones simply having the ] fronds of hardy ferns scattered over the cloths. This will give a much better effect than a meager bunch of flowers on each table. These hardy ferns can usually be procured at the flcrlst's for about 8 cents a bunch of I<V fronds. If no flowers at all are o^d,, there are great decorative possibilities In these ferns alone. '' Carrying out the same idea ...

A Mmlo Portfolio. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

A Mmlo Portfolio. The design Illustrated should be applied to a music portfolio and '.a characteristic of the old nursery rhyme: "Msry, Vary, quite contrary, ', How does your garden growl" ■ "Silver balls and cockleshells And cowslips all In a row." The silver bells of the stanza are represented by the pendent waxen blossoms of that pretty little flower. Solomon's seal. And now let us consider the translation of these telling lines Into canning needlework. Linen Is the material par excellence on which the broidery should be wrought and the color should be dark. A good earth brown would be pleasing, bat citron green Is even better. This shade should throw up the delicate coloring- of the design wonderfully well and be a good wearIng color to boot Sixfold floss Is the embroidering material to use, for the reason that It, is sufficiently tightly twisted to withstand the rub and friction to which a music portfolio must necessarily be subjected. One fll of this sixfold floss must be used...

EVILS OF MONOTONY. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

EVILS OF MONOTONY. It Given Rise to More Insanity Than Any Other Cause. One would be pardoned for thinking that a man who earned his livelihood by working In the fresh air of the country, surrounded by sights delightful to the eye aqd refreshing to the mind, would be far less liable to brain dlsenses than the man ■ sitting on a stool over a ledger in the stuffy atmos-i!iii-r<» of a smoke dyed city. '<£■■% rut if statistics prove anything they l' ::vp thp worthlessness of that possilile supposition,, says .the Cincinnati Enquirer. More agricultural laborers go mad, per cent for per cent, than any other workers. It is monotony which excites disinterestedness, which leads to depression, which develops Into melancholia, which ends perhaps in a cure, possibly In a suicidal act, probably In an asylum. It may safely be said that Sunday saves thousands upon thousands from the madhouse: — It Is the one break -from week to week which thousands of natures demand. _JThe ag...

Age of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

Age of the Earth. Scientists are still disagreeing about the age of the earth. They have been actively discussing the subject for the last 30 years, and yet no general agreement has been arrived at The school of Hutton and Playfalr had come to believe that the whole of eternity was at the disposal of the geologists, when Sir W. Thomson, now Lord Kelvin, astonished the scientific world by declaring that the age of our planet must be more than 20,000,000 years, but less than 400,000.000 years. This larger estimate has now been restricted by him to not much more than 20,000,000, while Professor Talt grudgingly allows something less than 10,000,000. Sir Archibald Geikle showed that even the phenomena of denudation which had been adduced In support of the inconceivably vast antiquity of our globe might be accounted for at the present rate of action within such a period as 100,000,000 years. Sir Archibald, In an address before the British association, now concedes that it Is Just as well ...

ExiraordlnWr'r Carrtnsra. Some very extraordinary carvings are to be found at Thomboo, on the Irawaddy, where they are cut out of the face of a high cliff rising directly from the river bank and are of great size. They consist of a succession of rudely formed niches. In appearance something like the catacombs of Rome, and these are full of large and small Images of Buddha, who is represented In several positions. On the summit of the cliff Is a pagoda of great sanctity, which Is visited every year by large numbers of Dllrrlms. •' ■. ' Mrs. J. K.

Where Honest? Exists. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900

Where Honest? Exists. "People In the small towns up In Connecticut" said the traveling man, "appear to be much more honest than they are In New York. Not one family In ten thinks of such a thing as burglar alarms, and half of them do not even lock their outer doors when they retire. But what ' Impresses ma most are the street laundry boxes. "Nearly every town of 6,000 or more Inhabitants has- several places where laundry packages are received and delivered. These places are generally dry goods or notion stores, or haberdasheries. Suburban merchants *as a rule do not keep their stores open much later than 8 o'clock In the evening and do not open them until 7 or half past 7 In the morning. ' "This does not suit all their patrons, so It is no Infrequent sight to see outside the store a large red box with a fair sized opening In the top. The box bears the legend If the store Is closed, put your laundry in here.' .. Now, Juet Imagine a New York laundry office using a receptacle like that...

MISCELLANEOUS. •WBE,^ .^^§^£ It has been wittily said of the martyrs that they were people who were cannonaded while they lived and were canonized when they were dead. The same thing might be said of many a woman, who has been cannonaded by censures and criticisms while she lived and canonized as a saint after death. Husbands don't mean to be small and selfish. But they can't understand the sufferings which come with debilitating drains, irregularity, inflammation, or mceration of the sensitive female organs. Thousands of happy women pay tribute to the wonderful change in their lives effected by the use of Dr. Pierce'i Favorite Prescription.
