But All In Fun.
TTaving decided upon the base conclu
sion that "B. 8.," "C. C." and "Wall
Flower" have about exhausted all thair
knowledge of literature, I will enter the
literary arena and volunteer to give the
public in general a more accurate account
oi'the great conflagration which occurred
bere on the night of Deceuil>er 14th, sen
timental maidens, Superior Courts, wed
dings and many other remarkable events
too numerous to mention.
it must have been a great disappoint
ment to "C. C." and her betrothed, Ja>k,
to have lost that dainty little bonnet and
the novel-like mustache, and so mar the
anticipated pleasure of the would-have
been honeymoon, and no doubt "Wall
Flower" heartily sympathizes with them,
but all my tender loving words, filial af
fection and li(.l:-Iity, coupled with sacri
fices of conifer I and other nice things, are
lavishly bestowed upon another.
On the night of the great conflagration
I noticed a woman, I will not give her
name, her stature nor her age, pacing to
and fro up and down the sidewalk, ap
parently Buffering great mental agony
and consternation. I noticed, too, she
kept her eyes continually lixed upon a
certain sign-board, and when it came
with a crash to the ground she ran her
long, slender lingers through her silvery
hair, gave a little shriek and muttered in
faltering accents, "My last faint hope baa
vanished; he'll never come back." A
Bentimental little belle then appeared
upon thft; scene, took the poor distressed
Woman by the arm and led her slowly
My curiosity had by this time become
bo intense that 1 resolved to see what was
on that sign-hoard, so ventured nearer
the llames. and with the aid of my little
red apron, which I held up to protect mv
face from the intense heat, and with my
left hand above my eyes, read with diiii
culty the following letters: 1) E M O C X

Ma took her knitting and went over to
spend ihe day with "Wall Flower's"

attending the Lakeport Academy now.

The Native Daughters of the Golden
West gave an "apron social" Jiere on
last Wednesday evening. It was, of
course, a brilliant affair. Everybody was
dressed in their Sunday-go-to-meetins.
I wanted to wear my new turkey-red
dress, but ma said there was no use wear
ing my best every whip-stitch, so I wore
my new gingham, made full skirt, sailor
Av.ti^t, and a big, broad sash, tied in the
back. I'm glad I did, too, because the
learned lawyer, who is a handsome
blond.-, told me I looked "awful nice,"
and be didn't see why everybody can't be
pretty, just like me. He said my dress
a\-as the prettiest in the hall, and I know
he meant it, for he is a married man.

what she was making. She said she was

going to make a "slumbering robe" for

THE BAUQUIER ESTATE.
An Opinion by the Supreme Court Sets
tho Administratorship at liest.
The Supreme Court filed its decision
yesterday in the matter of the appoint
ment of an administrator of tho estate
of Joseph Bauquier, deceased. The case
was appealed from Sacramento. The
"Joseph Bauquier died leaving an
estate estimated at about $20,000. In his
will he named his daughter, Mrs. H. C.
Bode, executrix. Letters having been
refused her, Frank Bauquier (a son of the
deceased), the Public Administrator and
one Smith, severally applied for letters.
At the hearing a contest was inaugurated
between Bauquior and tho Public Ad
ministrator. The court denied the ap
plications of Bauquier and Smith, and
appointed tho Public Administrator, and
thereupon Bauquier took this appeal.
"An appeal had been previously taken
by Mrs. Itode from tho order denying
her application to bo appointed execu
trix. Siuce tho submission of this case
hero, that order has been reversed, and
thereby the right of Mrs. Rode to be ap
pointed executrix apparently settled.
The matters involved in this appeal, there
fore, have become practically of little con

in this case that it was error to hold that

A Committee of Grangers Consults
With Governor Markham.
TUe Exeoutlvo AVIII Frobably Sign the
Kamle Bill—Good Prospects for
Sacramento Grange, Patrons of Hus
bandry, held a special meetingat Granger
Hall yesterday, for the purpose of con
sidering the subject of ramie culture.
W. 11. Murray, Secretary of the Cali
fornia Ramie Company, addressed the
Grange at considerable length. He stated
that his company would take pleasure in
establishing a ramie culture station at
any place in Sacramento County that
should be chosen. It should be remem
bered, he said, that fully fifty acres
should be planted by the farmers to make
ir profitable to send a machine, engine
and baling pres3 to the station. If, how
ever, a less number of acres were planted,
STALKS COULD BE SENT
To some other station for working. In
conclusion, Mr. Murray said his com
pany would agree to buy all the ramie
liber grown, and would also send ■
machine when the crop was grown, to
work the stalks free of change to the
growers representing the Sacramento
Grange. The proposed station, he said,
would be left under the control of the
Grange for three years.it being under
stood, however, that fifty acres ahould be
planted each year.
~After Mr. .Murray had concluded his
remarks, the Grange appointed a com
mittee, composed of the following named,
to wait upon Governor Markham, and
urge him to sign the bill to encourage
ramie culture, recently passed by both
houses of the Legislature: Erskine Greor,
11. \V. Johnson, C. K. Mack, Jr., Mrs. C.
A. Hull and Mrs. G. T. Kich.
THE GOVKBHOB FAVORS IT.
This committee proceeded immediately
after the adjournment of the meeting to
the Governor's office, and succeeded in
gaining an audience with the Executive.
Alter a short consultation, the Governor
said he felt convinced that the bill was a
good one, and he intimated that ho would
in all probability sign it.
There is but little doubt now that ramie
culture will progress rapidly in Sacra
mento County. Already a large number
of prominent farmers—among them being
ex-Senator William Johnston, Myron
Smith, Charles Hull, and Charles J. Jen
kins—nave signified their intention of
engaging in the industry as soon as prac
ticable. It promises to be a profitable
industry both lor the growers and the
manufacturing interests. When the liber
is produced it should never be allowed to
and its way to France. It has been sug
gested that with water power at Folsom,
a factory could be built, and the fiber
manufactured into threads that are very
valuable—worth not less than $1 per
A Duty of "Which Kallroau Conductors
will Henceforth be Uolieved.
On the Ist of April and thereafter, the
Southern Pacific Company will employ
on all the largo passenger trains a train
ticket agent, whose duty it will be to col
lect fares from passengers, punch tickets,
etc. The conductors will remain in serv
ice, but their only duties will be confined
to looking to the safety Of the train and
passengers, and to running the trains on
schedule time. The force of brakemen
will not be decreased.
This change has boen contemplated by
the company for some time, and the con
ductors will be greatly relieved. In fact
they will have very little to do. It is the
intention to detail a ticket agent for the
overland trains, and, if the travel war
rants it. the more important local trains
will also bo run under the new system.
Perished in the Snow.
Ed. Secord, a young man well known
at Dutch Flat, where he was born and
raised —a son of Luke Secord, one ot the
old-time citizens of that part of the county
—has been missing since the early part of
last winter. Every effort has been made
to ascertain his whereabouts, but without
avail, until recently, according to a corre
spondent of the Placer Republican, his
body was found near the trail from Wash
ington to Emigrant C*np, where it seems
he perished in the snow while attempting
to come across from the fonier place during
the storm. The body was not recognized by
those who found it, and it was buried on
the spot. His lather will have the re

Him From Bloodshed—One of
Many persons have claimed the dis
tinction of having been members of the
first party to reach California by crossing
the plains in 1849, on which subject
Charles P. Jackson, of Chicago, writes:'
"J. H. Burgess, now of Kanglcy, 111.,
John Kirkpatrick (since deceased) and
Jos.C.Harmer.now of Santa liarbara.Cal.,
had the honor of being the first in over
the plains in '40, they having arrived at
Hangtown July ZLat, and reported at Sui
ter's Fort the ttth, and theirs was an ox
team. The reporter at the Fort was called
out to examine the train, and said: 'Well,
boys, you are here and your team is here,
and you all look like men who have
crossed the plains, and so does your team,
but a Mr. Stewart called yesterday and
reported himself "in," although his teams
were not yet at Hangtown, he having rid
den on in advance, as we now learn. Mr.
Burgess, your party are entitled to the
credit of the first arrival across the plains
in '4!t. Your pilots, Harvy Evans and
Brother Allen have done good work and
are entitled to an honorable mention for
their faithfulness and efficiency.'
"Now, I don't want to say much about
it, but it was an honor to be the 'first in,'
and Mr. Burgess and hii party are enti
tled to it. There was another wagon and
party in the train, consisting of Lemuel
Statten, Billings Moore and Jacob Burn
ham, who sold their wagon on the llum

bringing the old Californians together,

Jerome l)avis' ranch in Yolo County, and
thought he came out of the scrimmage
mighty well, no matter what the bear
thought. Any ordinary man would have

Mr. Burgess decided to wait a little
longer, and is here yet to show his scars
and tell the story and have a good time
with the old boys."

when he undertook to enter that night he
found the door blockaded. It seems that
Hudson, his employer, had gone to sleep
on a sofa placed against the door, ami as
"Fred," the employe, tried to force the
door open Hudson awoke. Supposing it
to be a burglar who was trying to get in,
he armed himself with an iron bar, and
as the door gave way and tho intruder
entered Hudson went for him. Tho lat
ter, believing he had discovered a burglar
inside, who intended to murder him,
broke and ran. Hudson yelled "Mur
der!" "Police!" and officer Burko,
hastening to the spot, saw Fred, running
down the street and called to him to stop,
but he didn't, and Isurke turned loose his
pistol. Shot after shot was sent after the
fugitive, but it only increased Ids speed.
Finally he met some friends and was re
turning with them to the scone when
they eucountored the pulling policeman,
who inquired if they had met a wounded
man running down the street. Explana

build and operate a railroad from Nisqually City
to the headwaters of Nisqually River. This road, when built, will bring all the coal and iron of this resourceful dis
trict direct to NISQUALLY CITY, where it will be manufactured or shipped to all parts of the world.
In order to build up the town and increase the value of its holdings, the company has adopted the following plan-
Liberal bonuses will be given to secure the location of smelters, rolling mills, reduction works, machine shops sash
and door factories., tub and bucket factories, and industrial and manufacturing enterprises of all kinds. Valuable
property will be give-U for the location of colleges, seminaries, training schools, universities, etc. Free lots will be
given to those who build. •
Furthermore, the selling price of this property has been placad at $23 to SS3 per lot. $83 will buy the ber.t Busi
ness Lot, and from $23 to $3O for choice Residence Lots. One-third cash, balance in monthly payments of $1O ocr
month, with interest. Ten per cent, discount for all cash.
To appreciate this proposition, remember that the company reserves from sale each alternate block, from the
sale or which, it expects to make its profits, as prices will be advanced proportionate to the city's growth.
