Slonne Quits V» For Good. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900
Slonne Quits V» For Good. . "I am going back to England the Ist of March," said Tod Sloane, the jockey, recently. "I have interests there besides racing. I am interested In the Shaftesbury theater of London, and De Wolf Hopper is with me In the enterprise. He has made a hit with the English, and we expect a big run when he starts In business. That will be only on the side with me, however. I cannot expect to ride . always, and I want something to turn my attention to when I quit the turf. I think a good boy from this country can show them the road for a long time to come."

The Legend of a Dell. The largest hanging bell in the world 1b In a Buddhist monastery near Canton. It Is 13 feet high and 45 feet In circumference and Is of solid bronze. Canton has a pretty little fable connected with it The story Is told by Mrs. J. P. Newman in one of her sketches of travel. The life of the founder of the greatest bell of China had been threatened by the emperor because of his unsuccessful attempts to make a bell having perfect purity of tone. The bell founder's beautiful daughter, witnessing her father's agony while Imploring the emperor for one -more trial, consulted the gods as to the reason for failure. Being told that should the blood of a fair maiden mingle with the bell metal the result would be secured, she, waiting beside her father until able to see her face in the molten ore, plunged in nnd was destroyed. To the sacrifice of this maiden the Chinese attribute the beauty and sweetness of the tone of the great bell of Ta-Cung-ta.— New York Tiroes."

A Penalty For Being; Polite. It is more difficult to be polite In the city ;of Hamburg than in any. other place in Europe. There the most chivalrous man has to think twice before giving up his seat in a car to a lady, as he may be turned off the car for politeness, j It seems that the Hamburg trolley cars will seat, according to size, 20 or 28 persons, 10 to 14 on each side. Iv addition four perpons are allowed on the front and five persona on the back platform. .When the car is full, the conductor hangs out a sign, "Beietzt." which means "occupied." and la absolutely forbidden to take on another passenger until some one gets off the par. Sometimes, while the conductor Is in front collecting fares, a lady will step on the car which is already "occupied." As there Is no conductor on hand to prevent her, the lady steps Inside, and the gentleman who may offer her s seat comes out and takes his stand on the platform. When the conductor after going his rounds returns to his post, he prom...
Salt and Horse Radian. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 9 March 1900
Salt and Horse Radian. Some people care . for nothing but lemon on raw oysters, but there are others who desire horse radish. Usually such folk regard the strongest horse radish as the best, but an experienced vender of the condiment ' poobpooba this point of view. .;.... "Why should the strong horse radish be considered good?" says he. "It brings tears to your eyes and lifts the top of your head off and makes you want to sneeze. It has no taste whatever. The wild horse radish, that which has stood awhile. Is the best and pleasantest always. "There Is nothing so foolisb as to think that the strong, biting kind Is the fresh— tljat Is the reason why it Is preferrc- 1 to the mild sort— for the very stalest. -i :ikest horse radish can be made in •_'&lt;) minutes strong enough to blow your head off.

CALAVERAS .COUNTY [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 March 1900
CALAVERAS .COUNTY- Prospect, San Andreas, March 10, 1000. Michael Owens, who has long resided near Milton, has had a varied and romantic life, but an incident that happened to him this week as related by the Stockton- Independent,, was probably as interesting as any single happening of his 'whole 'life. ;' Forty-four years. ago he left his home in Illinois for Australia; and from that time up to a few months ago no, single link bound him to old associations. He had long been given .up for dead by his friends and relatives, and .he had evidently taken no ' pains to learn any news of them. ■.:_ After various wanderings he found himself located at his present home, and as the years crept upon him there , came a desire to . know the fate of his relatives, apparently ko long forgotten. He accordingly wrote to the Sheriff of Cook, county, Illinois,* asking for information regarding his brother. He received a reply that his brother was dead, but that a son survived him, of whom he gave tho...

Cars Painted in Ten. Minutes. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 March 1900
Cars Painted in Ten. Minutes. A number of American railways now paint all their cars by machinery, and the apparatus used is very curious and interesting. The paint is first mixed to about the consistency of cream and then poured into a small steel tank connected with a' reservoir containing compressed-air." When the valve is .opened the* stuff is forced up into a flexible tube about as big- around as a man's thumb, and comes "out of a brass nozzle in the form of a fan spray, thin as a knife blade. All the operator has to do is to wave the' nozzle to and fro, using it exactly' like a brush.- -The spray at the top is not more than an inch broad, so if he wants a narrow stroke he has merely to bring it near, and. vice versa for a wide one. It is claimed that the apparatus deposits a paint film of exactly the same thickness throughout, which is, of course, impossible to do ! with | a brush, and that its work is consequently more durable and a . better protection from the weather.
