Tbe " theory" or Evolution has been brought

their reasons and reasoning have alwaya under

It is but a theory, and tbey art lot theorist.
Theory i only tool of acieoce. But the strong
bold wbicb the evolutionist had obtained on the
public attention made it eery desirable that the
American mind should have the ot nortuoity of
judeing whether their tbeoriee had approximated
to the domain of true scientific loTretigatioD.

fect may "be summed up Iu a very brief state

tbe practically unanimous eontiment of, the
thinking mind of the country, or of all who
have heard or read hi lectures, that the doctrine
of evolution, a explained and Illustrated by Ita
great apostle, is the most vague of all vague
b rones. 1 le ardent friend or ue doctrine

that there ia a vast deal more in it than he Lae

that can be aakf in support cf the theory haa
been aald, clearly, compactly, ably, by the man
wbo ia better able to say it thus than any . other
believer in tne theory. "
After giving Mr. Huxley special consaendatiosi
for the clearness and simplicity of his style, this
writer ssys further : I
M He went into the subject with deliberation,
ottered no claptrap or bombast, but calmly ex
amined tbe field, stated as well as he or any
believer In evolution could, tbe weakness of tbe
theory, and then proceeded to develope tbe line of
argument wblcb he regards as conclusive In its
support Therefore, tbe effect on tbe thinking
American mind is tbe more remarkable, and to us
wbo bave no sort of faith Iu the theory, tbe more
satisfactory. For a time at least the evolution
doctrines Lave been thoroughly demolished la tbe
minds of American thinkers; and even , In tbe
pages of publications where they have heretofore
found favor, we now find joke and Jests, ridicu
ling tbeir pretension to be called science.
" Whatever be tbe valae of evolution theories la
themselves, we do not mistake tbe effect produced
by tbeir apostle here. There Is but one voice,
from press and mouth, and that voice rather a
laugh tbat anything els.
'A few possibly sUll ask, Is this all there I
of It?' Yes, tbi Is emphatically all there I ol
It. Professor Huxley baa stated the doctrine, with
its full force, and supported It with iu strongest
argument. Darwin has not tbe power to do aa
much. And the argument, derived front the "one
horse" pedigree, still lacks a leg te eland ea, or
rather lacks a toe. And If all the forte cf all tbe
evolutionslst were directed successfully to tbe
discovery of tbe missing toe, tbe argument would
still lack a leg, In fact would lack all its legs, for
it would prove nothing, and remain only a vague
M ' If twice fifty were ninety-nine, we could show
you maoy mathematical truths which we believe
but which you do not see. We believe tbem tie
cause twice fifty is a hundred, and that Is within
one of ninety-niae, and ao close to It that we are
sure we shall some day find where tbe m Using
fraction Is, and we shall then prove all we wish?
Tbis is tbe method of areumcot la all the tvAoals
of science, so called, to wblcb evolution belongs.

which are so weak as Professor Huxley baa shown
bis to be. But tbe man wbo is tempted to adept

to discover perpetual motion. Tbe theory of evo
lution is precisely like tbe theory of prepetual
motion, alooe it reduces itself to thla Blatrment 1
Not Msg waa ever created; aJI tbleg grew cut

form of staling tbe theory of a perpetual motion

which haa alreadv fallen this Fall snav La laa.
Tbe heaviest fall has been In Nevada county, 10.41
inches, ana tbe lightest in nan Josouib county,
2.14. Tbe mountain counties record the heavi
est fall all over the Elate. Ban Joaquin val
ley, which is In tbe moat need of rala, from tbe
arid nature of tbe soil and the prevalence of north
winds, gets tbe least. Just how much of tbi light
rainfall may be attributed to the total absence of
trees can not be told, but it ia the universal opin
ion of scientific men, and tl at opinion Is borne
ont by actual experiments all over tbe world, tbat
an abundance of trees throughout tbe Eaa Joaquin
valley would in a great measure cbaiure tbe cli
mate of tbe country.
Tbe Stale Legislature has seen At to offer a re
ward for tbe planting ot trees f routine; on any
highway, but not a single farsjtr in tbe San Joa
quin bss ever claimed a cent of bounty money.

consideration, the effect upon the comfort of Ibe
people and the beautifying of tbe farm, and the
still greater benefit wblcb would undoubtedly
occur to lb wsy u changing tbe climate. The

these plains, drying up the vegetation like a blaat

In some of tbe Western prairie countries, which

of California, associations have been formed
for tbe purpose of planting ornamental tree aad
beaulifriog the eountry. Many of ihe farms are
sourrounded by double rows of trees, and tbe
effect Is most pleasing to the eye. These associa
tions have done more than all other agencies to
enhance the ralue of prairie farms. Tbey act as
an onament In Summer as a wind break In Win
ter, wben the penetrating wind sweeps aeroea tbo

association would be of great practical benefit tn,
tbe San Joaquin valley. Tbe bounty of ffl a tree
at tbe end of three years would certainly remuner
ate a company for tbe outlay, wben carried on Is
an extensive way, and leave a Laudwome proa
besides. Tbe farmer in front ci whose premise
tbe trees woald be planted eeuld well afford to
