These questions which the Rosenthal murder caused to blaze for n

HOEING CLUBS FOR L. I.
HE boys of Long Island are to be lured into the delights of
farming, to the end that the youth and the aoil of tb.c
ninety mile garden strip behind Brooklyn may flouriah and
prosper together. The Long Island Agronomist, backed by the
Long Island Railroad, announces that it will found three clubs I
Corn Club, a Cauliflower Club and a Potato Club. Any Long Island
boy who will not be twenty-one before Dee. 1, l'J13; jnay become a
member of one of these olube. Dues nothing, assessments ditto,
other charges the same. The member agrees to cultivate one acre
of land and to furni'h for exhibition next fall twenty-four eara of
rorn, tusked, and five average cornstalks, or one bushel of potatoes
or twelve heads of cauliflower, according to the club he elects to
join. Prizes of $50, $25 and $10 will be awarded in each club, and
lie winner may have his exhibit entered at the New York Land
Show, and so stand a chance of national honors.
Such a contest ought to bo good for the boys, good for tho
-oil and New York will be happy to stick a knife and fork into
some of the second-best vegetables. Long Island is already a won
derful garden, but there is still lots of room, and even a selfish, soul
ss railroad corporation need not be barred from having a try for the
glories of the two-blades-of-grass-instead-of-one miracle.
ITH the finest air and sunshine of the year, fine busines

seemed to go Insane. Men dropped

toward tho West. Wholo villages

Soldiers deserted wholesale. Factories, stores,
farms were desolated. Westward stampeded
nearly a hundred thousand men. Not only
frotli America, but from Kurope and een from
China. The magic word that drew them was "Gold."
Gold had he n discovered In fabulous quantities In California. And to
California the money-mad thousands swarmed. To most of them California)
had hitherto been but an empty name.
Pacific slope discovered In 1634 by the Spaniard Xlmenes and named at
tha fabled wonder-Isle In an old Spanish legend. For centuries, indeed,
California was supposed to be an Island. The Spaniards established maay
missions there. By a revolution In UTS It fell Into Mexico's hands. And dur
Ing our war with Mexico It waa conquered for tha Unites)
States by Stockton and Kearny, and afterward waa bought
by our Qovernment, along with other territory, for I1S
But up to 1114 there were only a handful of AmerloasJ
and other Anglo-flaxon eertlera there. Less than a thousand In all. Then, la
a workman named James Marshall found gold near Sutter's mill. It was)
not by any nieana tha flrat discovery of gold In California. But nea.i of tl
raaohed tha Eaat. And tha rush followed.
In ona year an avalanche of mora than S0.O00 men poured Into California.
Then followed tha treaeure hunting orgy. Nugget of goM tanging In value
from II to 130,000 apiece were found. Man often averaged sr.no for a single .lava worM
In tha manes. Hirer bada war scoured and mountains rlppej open. In one roar
of California's history no less than tla.OOO.OOO worth of gold was mined. In-July,
USO, fully 600 ahtps lay Idle In San Francisco Bay. Their crews had deserted 1st
a body to join tha gold hunt.
II was tha strangest era perhaps In all history. California waa alive wltt)
reckless, daring, dangeroua men, excitable, unscrupulous, fierce. There waa praee
tleally no home life. Women formed but S per cent, of the whole population (las
the mining districts barely 2 per cent). Lawlessness relgne.1. Crime waa rife.
The batter element, even then, brought about rough lusttco by lynch law
and by means of the vigilance committees. And aoon tho
worst of the peril was overcome.
California wo admitted as a State In 1K0. It tl aecond In

Vast fortunes were made and unmade In a lay. Gold waa plenty and a aorl

200,000 Inhabitant, numbered fully one hundred millionaires. Stock deals, gsse
bllng, real SStAtS speculations and other pursuits of chance ran riot. Prices fof
everything were unbelievably high. California was drunk with riches.
But again the sturdy strength an I the calm wisdom that underlay all tblo
excitement came to the front. Gradually, but ateadlly, the effervescence ssjb
aided, and out of turmoil grew a mighty State. The gold madness had lensf
since passed. But the stesdfaat purpose that had carried the treasure huntera
