A Utter from California.
Kltlt Inlrrivr Jntnnl
A copy of your excellent paper
iiiu found its way into otio of tlio
households of the for Wot. Think
ing that a few lines from California
would 1m of interest to an Eastern
reader, I have determined to writo
11 small contributfon if you think it
California is a far-famed country;
thcrcforo I will attempt nothing but
common plico remarks. Farming i
carried on on n grand scale, Farms
are called raiichen, ami somo ol the
largest ,aad mbst beautiful of tbo
world aro in this country. Many
ranches compriso from two thousand
to fifteen thousand acres of land. The
land U plowed In tlio winter and
spring, or as u termed, summer fal
lowed; it is sown down in grain tlio
next fall, and tlio raina nro nil that
the farmer hoes for until they come.
Thcso oro joyfully welcomed, for they
insure good crops. On theso largo
ranches tlio gang plow is used exclu
sively, with six and eight horse or
tnulo teams. It is nothing new or un
usual to see from thirty to sixty-four
horses or mules working ull in sight
of each other. Tito hired men faro
rather rough; at least it would nound
so to an Eastern people. They furnish
their own hod (which is a pair of
blankets), and sleep in the barn.
There is always a cook-house, nnd a
Chinaman to cook for the hired men.
No matter what tho eleganco of the
family dwclliug, tho cook-house and
hired men are entirely distinct. When
upper is over, tho men roll up in
ithcir hiankeU and sleep until tlio
sound of tho foreman's voice calls
them to harness horses and preparo
for breakfast nnd work. At, nr be
lore suuriso, and often earlier, they
aro plodding up nnd down tho long
furrows. When the graiu is grown,
and just heforo harvest, the plains for
tnilcr), present tho appcaranco of one
vast wheat field. There aro no fences,
buf fow houses, and moat of thoio aro
mow deserted nnd look lonely as a
miner's cnbin, they being uml only in
plowing nnd reeding timo for cook
houses. Sometimes thcro will bo u
barn. Probably tho owner will re
sido in toflrn or elsewhere. At this
Hcasou of the year, which is tho last
of January, tho country presents any
thing but a wintry appcarauce. The
J5eldivara green with growing grain.
In fiiir" now part of this country, six
miles West of Red Ultifl, tho ranches
aro small. Tho fields aro dotted hero
oud.thcrc with scattering oaks. The
oil is so gravelly that threo or four
years ago it was considered fit for
nothing but sheep range. lint now
thcso hills and plains of gravel faro
'fast.heing turned into beautiful homes
nud homesteads. An enterprising
pcoplofrom tho Kaqt arc the principal
settlers, and' where miserable cabins
stood, nro now pretty two-story farm
h'dusea. The sheep have beau crowd
ed to a newer locality, aud Rod Bank
ranks with tho prosperous, ns a com
munity. Tho scenery is varied aud
picturesque. .To.tha Eajt and West
arejuouataiu ehains with their snow
peaks, Jnlmot throughout tho year.
Aud to lira North, Mt. Shasta's snow
capped summit is wrapped in eternal
mow. Tho mountains aro covered
with pine and the foot lulls with pi no
aud oak. Tho game nro deer, and
onco in a while n, bear. Flowers aro
now blooming in tho opeu air. Myr
tles and geraniums growing in tho
yard,' aud all nrouud the mouutaiu
tops aro covered with snow. Hero is
every thing, but unfortunately, it is
not all to-gether. L. S.

A Texas Lor Story.
Twclvo years or moro ago, back in
tho Htntei, M. Hornn nnd tfio girl of
his clioico wero wedded, and for n
timo lived in tho full enjoyment of
their bliss. Anon, however, n cloud
legnn to gather in their domestic eky,
no greater than n speck nt first, hut
with tho fleeting days it increased, un
til tho pent up storm burst and sever
ed them. Ilorau was no rich man's
sou, educated, bluo-bloodcd and high
ttrung, but ho was a man for all that,
and he loved his wifo with a lovo as
warm und truo as ever loved tho more
favored ol our kind his chosen mato
in life. Hut tho cup of joy was not
fur him then, and ho wandered away,
strolling around after a dovil-mny-care
fashion, until the fates brought
him to Texas. Here, as elsewhere, ho
was a sorry dog, until two years ago
he obtained employment on the Col
umbus division of tho I. & U. N.
Road. Finding himself settled, and
yearning for tho old days, ho put him
self in communication with his wife
from whom ho had strayed ten long
years before. The affection of her ear
lier days iho cherished still, nor did
sho hesitato when he called, but an
swered quickly; aud in August Inst
tho two currents of lifo joined. Iloran
was plncod by tho company at Areola
in chargo of a section of tho road.
Witli his wife ho went to his duty and
discharged it, winning the confidence
thereby of his employers and tho re
spect of his colaborers. Thus their
lives sped on peacefully and -quietly
until last Wednesday, when tho hus
band was taken ill. He paid little
heed to tho malady until Thursday
night, when he became worse, attri
butable to tho fact that his wifo was
also similarly attacked. Neither ol
them would take medicino, albeit they
grew worse each day. It seemed that
they recognized tho inevitable, and
wero prepared for it. At ten o'clock
Sunday night Mrs. Iloran sank into
tho slumber from which thcro is no
awakening, and nt tcu o'clock Mon
day her husband followed her into tlio
dreamless land. A short time pre
vious to his death ho arose from his
bed, went to her trunk, took out tho
few trinkets which sho owned, placed
them upon her person, reclined him
self upon, his couch besido her, and,
kissing the cold face, dropped iuto a
gentle, peaceful sleep, from which' ho
never aroused. Two coffins were sent
dow,n on the Monday morning train,
and it is a fact that nt the time they
left hero ono of those for whom thoy
wero intended was yet in tho land of
the living. Houston Telegram.
Tho many jKsojilb who frequently
want a drop of something to make
them feel right when thoy aro too
cold or too hot, or too wet or too dry, I
or something, will rejoico to hear that
foreign chemists bavo discovered how
to solidify wines and spirits. a Hereaf
ter a man should be able to carry
somo Crumbs' of tho precious stuff In
his vest-pocket instead of going about
with a cork protruding from a pocket
of lits coat, aud instead of iuyiting
his boou companions to tlio -noarcst
bar ho can oiler them a braocr trom
a neat box up larger than a cigar
rose. Bettor yet it is said. that in the
process of solidification tho liquor
loses its smell, so uo man after re
freshing himself need rack his brain
for plausible explanations to" nwuW to
his wifo about the aroma of cloves or
coffeo that ho exhales. Under the
uew and solid dispensation tho cork
scrow will not, as heretofore, be tho
most important portion of a travel
er's baggage, aud evou in Ibston tlio
wayfaring man will bo able to stimu
late iu full sight without being arrest
ed. When election day is about duo
a candidato will not need to keep
"open houso" at every rum shop iu
his district; ho need only carry a
pocketful of ucat little boxes of solid
ified patriotic inspiration aud distrib
ute them freely.
Woirrii Knowing. -Every little
while we read of some one who has
stuck a rusty nail iu his foot, or some
other part of his person, and lockjaw
has resulted therefrom. All such
wounds can bo .healed without fatal
consequences following them. It is
ouly to smoke such wound, or any
wound or bruise that is inflamed, with
burning wool or woolen cloth. Twen
ty minutes iu tho smoko will take the
pain out the worst cao of inflammutiou
arising from any wound we over saw.
Iu North Carolina thcro aro fifty
threo cotton-mills in operation, aud
six others aro iu progress aud nearly

Proposed Uniform Time Service.
Tho Signal Kervico authorities Imvo
planned nn extension of timo service,
in this and other Atlantic ports,which
promise, to linvo somo far reaching re
sult. Nearly all tho vcracN engaged
in tho Atlantic trndo rcgulato their
timo by tho Greenwich standard,
which from the vast predominance of
tho British marino is Incoming tlio
conventional standard tho world
over. To lacilitato tho testing and
regulation of ships' chronometers in
our port it is now propoed to set up
a timo-bnll on tho high building of
tho Equitable Insuranco Company, to
bo dropped hourly by Greenwich time.
It is also in contemplation to establish
a system of standard meridians at
even hour distances from Greenwich,
nnd the distribution of standard timo
based thereon In all our principal cit
ies. The meridian five hours (or 7fi)
from Greenwich passes near Philadel
phia. Tho proposition is (by disre
garding tho odd -minutes) to make
Philadelphia time officially fivo hours
later than Greenwich timo, and tho
standard for the Eastern nud Middle
States. It is reasonably held that to
tho 12,000,000 people within twclvo
minutes of tho Philadelphia meridian
tho practical convenience of uniform
time will vastly outweigh tho theoret
ical inconvenience of having their
timo uniformly a few minutes too fast
or too slow. Tho noxt standard hour
lino would fall near the meridian of
St. Louis, Memphis nnd New Orleans,
making the timo of the Mississippi
Valley exactly ono hour later than
that ol tho East. Two other hour lines
would cross tho country near Denver,
Colorado, and near San Francisco,
California. This would give four
standards for tho whole country, in
stead of the forty now existing.
Kiss Me. Mamma.
"Kiss me, mamma, before I Bleep."
How simple a boom, and yet how
soothing to tho littlo suppliant is that
soft gentle kiss. The little head sinks
coutcntcdly on the pillow, for all is
peace and happiness within. The
bright eyes close tho rosy lips part
in a sweet smile, for tho littlo heart is
revelling iu tho bright and suuny
dream of iunocencc.
Yes, kiss it, mamma, for that good
night kiss will linger in its memory
when the giver lies mouldering iu tho
silent grave. Tho memory of a gen
tlo mother's kiss has cheered many a
lonely wanderer's pilgrimage, nnd
has been tho lencoii light to illumine
his desolate heart, for remember lifo
has many a stormy billow to cross, n
rugged path to climb, aud wo know
not what is in store for tho littlo one
so sweetly slumbering with no care or
sorrow to disturb its peaceful dreams,.
The parched and fevered lips will bo
come dewy ugain, as recollection
brings to tho sufferer's couch a moth
cr's love a mother's kiss. Then kiss
your littlo onoj erathey sleep; there
is magic power in that kiss that will
endurn even to tho end of lifo.
Rev. Chas. F.t Deems- tells of a
young man who is constantly at war
with his appetite for liquor, though
ho nover permits himself to tnko a
drop. Neither his father nor grand
father wero addicted to its use, but
his great grandfather was au habitual
druukardi Thus are tho sins of tho
father visited upon tho children unto
tho third generation. Dr. Dooms says
of this case of. hereditary impulse,
''I think it, is extraordinary only in
the perfect resistance which lie has
made to his strong inclination."
When a man who was profanely
expressing his opinion to one who had
sold him somo kind of a quadruped,
and by way of compliment called it n
horso, the jockey replied, "You aro
commauded to swear not at all." The
victim iustantly replied, aud with a
wit which he did not exhibit when
examiuing tho quadruped ufurcmeu
tioned, "Sir, I obey tho command.
I swear not nt all, but only at such
fellows ns you."

The Grand Show.
Tho organization of Col. John H.
McIIciiry's company of Union Min
strels has been nt length perfected
and performances will bo given in all
the principal cities nnd towns of Ken
tucky ns soon ns tlio gentlemen com
posing tho troupo can chango their
winter clothing 'or spring and summer
wear. The engagement of Gov. R.T.
Jacob as bary tono nnd leader of the
mystic circlo of sablo harmonists se
cures to this high-ton! andoxclusivo
association of first-class talent ono of
tho handsomest nnd best-drebsed of
living artists. Col. Mark Muudy, al
so, tho ravishing young tenor, is a
great accession. And iu Col. William
R. Kinney wo have, as an actor and
singer, a protean ot no mean order.
We understand that Col. Robert M.
Kelly has been induced to take the
advanco agency for the company. Col.
Kelly is a popular gentleman, and
his acquaintance with the press, and
facility with the pen, especially quali
fy him for this irnportaut and respon
sible position. Wo know all theso
gentlemen, and we can assure the
public, and especially tho ladies, that
tho entertainment which thoy have
provided will bo of tho purest charac
ter. Nothing will bo said or done which
can bring tho blush of sharao to tho
check of modesty. Tho programme
will contain selection's from the latest
comic operas, with songs, ballads and
glees of a humorous and sensational
description, culled from chaste sources.
It may bo further stated that Col.
Will S. Hays is engaged at the pres
ent moment, assisted by two pianos
and a hand organ, upon the composi
tion of music for those touching lines
of Col. McIIenry, beginning
"Adieu, democracy, adieu."
A Forty Thousand Ton Blast.
A great blast, which lias been pre
paring for nearly a year at tho lime
stone quarry cl the Glcndon Iron com
pauy, near Easton, Pa., was fired re
cently, and forty thousand tons of
rock were dislodged. Four tunnels,
each fifty feet long, were run into tho
hillside, and at their end two cham
bers were built at right angles, each
eight feet long. Ten tons of powder
wero used, nnd when the electric cur
rent was sent along the wire, the face
of tho rock, fur a distance of 150 feet
and a height of 25 feet, was blown
out like a wavo, and the rock abovo
this excavation sank into the space
with a roar.
Jet, tho well known substance used
by Indies as a black ornament for per
sonal decoration, is a mineral, and is
nothing more nor less than a species
of pitch coal, found iu detached mass
es, grained like wood, splitting hori
zontally, light and moderately hard.
It is often cou founded with cannel
coal, which is much harder than jet,
has no grain and splits in all direc
tions. Jet is not easily fused, and re
quires a moderately strong heat, burn
ing with n fine, greenish-white flame.
Tho value of jet consists in its suscep
tibility to take a fine polish.
According to the Frankfort Yeo
man, the latest stylo in social circles
is ns follows : "When one of them
sends a curd to a young lady request
ing her company to a hop or public
entertainment, he always places in
ouo comer the significant letters 'B.
N. N. II.,' which, being interpreted
properly, mean 'Bad night no hack.'
Tho young lady sends her conditional
acceptance, with the letters, 'U. B.
O,' 'unless bolter offer'"'
Senator Voorhees, says : I have
cured myself of rheumatic gout by a
simple remedy taking lemon, juice
in warm water twice. or three . times
per day. Consequently, I am able to
do what I bavo not done for years

and back, u matter of four miles, ev
ery day, and outstrip tho young fel

Cokns. To euro corns take ono
measure of coal or gas tar, ouo of
saltpetre aud ono of brown sugar; mix
well. Take a piece of old kid glove
and spread a plaster on it the size of
tho corn, and apply it to the part af
fected; bind on aud leave for two or
threo days,uud then remove, und tho
corn will come with it.'

Bro. Barnes and the Dtril.
Tho Louisville Commercial publishes
tho following: At tho closo of the
sermon, Brother Barnes related how
tho devil tried to head him off. Ho
had been trusting to the Lord for tho
'restoration of his failing sight nnd
had, to show his faith, put asido his
glasses. Miss Mario and he had, at
tho solicitation of friends, had their
pictures taken, and ho was trying to
seo what kind of an expression tho ar
tist had given his mug. Not being
ablo to see, ho took up a magnifying
glass, as if it did not answer the same
purpose of cyo glasses, and gazed at
the picture. This was the work ot
tho dovil, and iu a day or two after
wards his wifo shut tho drawer on his
finger, causing liim to forget for tho
timo everything else, even his religion.
On Thursday night, in attempting to
get from tho stago to tho floor, ho
stepped on a chair, which gave way
and precipitated him in such a way
that in ninety-nine cases out of a hun
dred he would have had the brains
dashed out of his pumpkin head. The
Lord saved him, however, from such
a late, and Brother Barnes attributes
to letting the devil persuade him to
use tho magnifying glass. He anoint
ed himself for his bruises and says ho
is now as fresh as a daisy.
"Papa," said little Harry the other
evening, "is your laicer a gun;
"Why, that's a fuuny question, my
boy. Of course, he is not; he's a man."
"That's what I thought; but lost night
when youngMr. June, that you don't
like, kissed sister Mary, over the front
gate, she told him to be careful or
father would hear; and Mr. June said:
'Pshaw, I ain't afraid of that old son
of a gun;' and then they both laughed,
and be kissed her again. Ain't that
funny?" The old gentleman was ab
sorbed in thought, and did not reply.
