BI WOULD NOT KB BSADK A SHOW
OF AT THB! FAIR.
The Reason Why Be Did Mot Viait the
World's Fair—Hia Objection
to Anything Undig
San Francisco Call: It is not gener
ally known that Pio Pico, the former
governor of this great state, is now liv
ing in Los Angeles, a hale old man of 94
years, and that he refused point blank
to attend the world's fair at Chicago.
Pioneers who remember the ex-gover
nor as one of the gayest of the gay
statesmen of the good old days when
money grew on trees and gold bubbled
out of tbe ground at the sligheat provo
cation will open their eyes in astonish
ment at this statement and exclaim in a
"Wal, what has California come ter,
anyhow, when one of ther biggest bloods
what 'Frisco and Sacramento ever seed
won't go on a spree ter ther big circus at
The reason why the old man refused
to take the trip is a simple one. He is
so proud tbat he would put tbe proverb
ial old Virginia horse to shame, and he
is just as poor.
At one time tne ex-executive counted
his acres in Southern California by the
thousand, and, as for town property,
why, he simply owned two-thirds of
what is now known as tbe City of the
He (Pico) had more money than be
knew what to do witb, and yet he ie •
pauper today and lives upon the charity
of three or four big-hearted gentlemen
of hia race, who allow him so much a
Hia poverty has kept bim away from
Chicago, notwithstanding the fact that
a committee waited upon him several
times and offered not only to pay all of
his expenses but to keep him is tbe
same style that he maintained when be
occupied tbe gubernatorial mansion in
the palmy days of the Golden West.
"No, I will not go," said Don Pio
through an interpreter, "for two good
reasons. The first it because lam poor,
and the second is because I do not in
tend to go to the big show to be one of
the animals on exhibit," and he refused
to discuss the matter further.
To an intimate friend, after the com
mittee had made its last visit and given
up in despair the ancient don put on his
moat dignified look and ejaculated in his
most vigorous Spanish:
"If those gringos imagine tor a mo
ment tbat they can take me back tbere
and show me in a side tent at two bite a
head, they are very much mistaken."
And the old man called one of his
amigoa to assist him in bis buggy and he
drove off with the air that plainly said,
"If I do not own thie town I used to."
This horse and buggy are all that are
left out of bis immense fortune, and the
old swell—for Don Pio Pico is still a
swell—spends most of his time driving
about the city.
He is almost always alone, and sin
gular as it may seem for one of hiß
advanced age, he drives through the
most crowded streets faster and bolder
than nine-tenths of the younger drivers.
His memory bas begun to fail him
during tne past few years, bnt he ie in
perfect health, and it will not surprise
bis friends if he lives to be 125 years of
Don Pio Pico should be one of the
wealthiest men in California today, but
like a large percentage of his nationality
his heart was created first and the rest
of the man was built around it in a
haphaiard style of architecture.
When hit wealth was so great tbat be
believed it could not be exhausted he
would not content himself with enter
taining his kinfolks and a few intimate
friends. He wanted the whole state for
a guest, and it it said by those who
ought to know that he would entertain
teveral hundred people at a time.
This kind of life waa kept upforyears,
and when the hospitable Mexican gen
tleman began to get pinched for money
besought the money lenders, and when
occo in their handß no power under the
sun conld save bim.
Mortgage after mortgage plastered his
broad acres, and like hundred of others
of his people he woke up one morning
with the sheriff in charge, and ex-Qov
ernor Don Pio Pico realised for the firtt
time that he was a pauper. But he is
the same elegant gentleman that he
always was, and it was not in the noble
old man to lower bis pride by attending
the world's fair on the charity of

A SAVAGE CANARY.
On* of tim Vary latest of Wild Rtavica
A bant Well Known Animc in
So many stories have been told rec*2itly_
of battles between tigers and snakes,
wildcats and elephants, eagles and alli
gators and codfish and wild hogs that
the following accurate description of an
encounter between a tomcat and a ca
nary bird cannot fail to bo interesting:
The tomcat and tho canary were the
property of an animal dealer on tho west
side who has long had a reputation for
veracity. Tho canary was noted for its
fierceness. It is a female bird about
8 yeara old with bright yellow feather
ing. The tomcat is quito white, with
four legs, and weighs—or rather weighed
—about 18 pounds.
During the morning it was noticed
that tho canary seemed unusually sav
age. She paced up and down her cage
in a great rage, gnashing her teeth and
glaring at the poor cat, toward whom it
turned out she had developed a fierce an
The keeper secured the door of the
cage, as he thought, firmly, but during
a paroxysm of temper the canary
smashed the fastening and was free.
What a moment! Tho unfortunate
tomcat gave a cry of terror and looked
around for some means of escape, but
there was none, the door of the room in
which the carnivorous animals were kept
The proprietor of the menagerie could
do nothing. Spellbound he watched the
uneven conteat, fearing all tho time that
the fury of tho canary bird would bo ex
pended on himself.
With a piteous moan the wretched
tomcat felt tho talons of the canary bird
sink into his head. Ho raised himself
and tried to fight her off, but tho bird
parried his every blow and fiercely
pecked at his eyes.
Once the cat seized the bird in his
paw, but she got away from him in a
moment with the loss of only one feather.
She returned to the charge and rendered
one of the cat's eyes blind with her sharp
Tho fight had lasted five minutes, and
the cat had all the worst of it. He was
panting, and every now and then rolled
over exhausted, uttering pitiful cries.
Though he was valued at $100, tbe keeper
of the menagerie, who was armed with
a sword and a shotgun, did not dare to
interfere to save him. The blood of the
canary was up, and she meant to slay the
It was not long before the awful work
was accomplished. The bird by an adroit
movement common to canaries when in
conflict with quadrupeds rendered the
poor Thomas cat quite blind. Then, at
her leisure, with a series of fierce jabs,
she penetrated his brain, and he rolled
over completely dead.
The boss was trembling for his own
safety, but it now seemed that the sav
age instincts of the canary had been sa
tisfied, for with a jaunty air she regained
her cago and began to warble a song of
It meant life or death to shut the door,
but the brave boss crept courageously
up to the cage and succeeded in accom
plishing this feat. Then he ran out into
the street and fainted. The nerve pres
sure had been too great for him.—New
The Value of a tittle Thing.
In a little volume of lee tures by Henry
Irving, just published, is a story which
illustrates the actor's motto, "While
trifles make perfection perfection is no
trifle." "This lesson was enjoined on
me when I was a very young man," he
says, "by that remarkable actress,
Charlotte Cushinan. I remember that
when she played Meg Merrilies I was cast
for Henry Bertram. It was my duty to
fjive Meg Merrilies a piece of money,
and I did it after tho traditional fashion
of handing her a large purse full of coin
of the realm, in the shape of broken
crockery, which was generally used in
financial transactions on the stage. But
after the play Miss Cushman said to me:
'Instead of giving me that purse, don't
you think it would have been much
more natural if you had taken a number
of coins from your pocket and given mo
the smallest? That is the way one gives
alius to a beggar, and it would have
added to the realism of the scene." J
have never forgotten that lesson."
Noah Left the Ark on April 20.
Saturday, April 29, is the day marked
in all ancient calendars as being the one
on which Noah and his family quitted
the ark after having withstood the siege
of tho great deluge. The day is marked
in all ancient calendars, especially Brit
ish, as egressus Noae de area; the 17th
of March, the day upon which Noah, his
family and their great floating collec
tion of natural history specimens set
sail, being designated in the same class
of early printed literature as introitus
Noae in area, "the day of Noah's en
trance into the ark." Why those days
were chosen as the ones upon which the
supposed omWk.it k.n and debarkation
were' made are enigmas which the an
tiquarians have not yet solved. —St.
Women and Comic Papers.
A man said tho other day that in rid
ing out and in daily on a suburban train
for years he had never yet seen a woman
buy one of tho comic weeklies, though
they sold by dozens to the men travelers.
It would be interesting to know what
kink is missing from the female mental
ity which deprives her of this boon, for
it is nothing short of a boon to be able
to see the funny side of life. It helps
over many hard places and lubricates
many creaking joints in domestic ma
chinery.—New York Times.

San Bernardino Times-Index: Ad
vices from Ooff's, on the Atlantic and
Pacific, state that the contractors who
are laying the traok for the Nevada
Southern from that point to sfoode
springs are pushing matters. They are
laying half a mile of track a day, and
are rushing construction with all the
means at their command. Tbe road is
now within five miles of Vanderbilt.
The latest and most important informa
tion concerning the new road, however—
and this comes to the Times-Index from
an authoritative source—is that the con
tract for building tha 51 miles of road
between Vanderbilt and Goode springs
will be let on the 20th inst., and this
part of the road will be pushed to an

Southern meant business from the start
is now evident, but it remains to be
seen what will be done to fit. th& gap
between Goode Springs (the northern
terminal of the new road) and Clover
Valley junction, fe»uth of Pioohe, Nev.,j|
which point tine Union Pacific extends
with a spur from Salt Lake. This gap is
about 150 miles in length, and a trail
extends between the two points that is
admirably adapted for a roadbed. The
problem of the situation in which gen
eral interest is felt is whether the Union
Pacific will build to Goode Springs or
the Nevada Southern continue to Clover
Valley junction, and whether the new
road ia really an independent line or is
being built by the Union Pacific, which,
it is understood, has for several years
been maturing plans to strike Southern
California and reach tidewater.
If tbe Nevada Southern is an inde
pendent line, the projectors may rest
content with making a spur of the At
lantic and Pacific, tapping the rich
mineral country in the Vanderbilt, New
York and Providence mining districts;
but if the Union Pacific is fathering the
scheme tbe Santa Fe and Southern Pa
cific may look for a strong competitor in
Southern California business. Tbe
Union Pacific would probably build a
direct line to tidewater.
