SAN FRANCISCO IS SINKING.
California' Chief City Will Sooa
Raekj Sea Level and Disappear.
"The whole peninsula on which San
Francisco stands has been and is grad
ually sinking down to the sea level,"
aid Prof. Andrew C. Lawson, the retir
ing president of the University of Cali
fornia Scientific association, while delivering-
his farewell address before
that body recently at Berkeley. The
subject of the lecture was "The Flood
ing of the Golden Gate."
"Nearly all parts of the earth's sur
face show the phenomena of uplift or
depression," said Prof. Lawson. "Move
ments of this kind arc either continent
al or orogenic. It is necessary to have
in mind the criteria of these two move
ments. The criteria of the uplift are
found in the presence of terraces and
sharply shaped canyons. The criteria
of depression arc shown when deltas
are built up at the mouths of rivers,
when the sea floods into the valleys.
Some time this depression continues to
uch a degree that mountains become
islands, sinking, as it were, to their
knees in the water. Greece is such a
mountainous region up to its knees in
"From Puget sound to Behring sea
we have a depressed coast. The shore
from the straits of Fuca to Cape Men
docino shows evidence of uplift and also
alight depression afterward. From
Cape Mendocino to Russian river there
has been a constant uplift. But from
this point to the Bay of Monterey the
region after having been elevated has
been marked by a great sag. It is to
that sag we owe the Bay of San Fran
cisco, Bolinas Bay, Drake's bay and
Tomales bay. They are stream valleys
invaded by the waters of the ocean. This
fact is very noticeable in Lake Merced.
It is clearly a valley formed by juncture
of several streams. The lake has been
invaded by the sea and now its bottom
is ten feet below the sea level.
"The phenomena of depression are
also seen at Richardson's bay and at
San Rafael and Xana. The river val
leys are filling up and making tidal
marshes. More positive evidence is
found in the swamp material in the
Oakland estuary, taken 20 feet below
the tide. The bay has been invaded by
the sea and flooded the river valleys.
"All this subsidence is of compara
tively recent geological change and
may go deeper. I am not sure of the
downward movement at the present
time. It is hard to catch it on the move.
Probably the whole of the San Francis
co peninsula is going down as the maxi
mum effect of the great sag that made
the Golden Gate at San Francisco."

In nearly all the churches or in the
monastic chapels hereabouts I find
ewarms of Greek soldiers. They come
in, cross themselves, stand listening
while the priest reads from the holy
books in the peculiar quavering sing
song which makes the words quite in
comprehensible even to Greeks, and
then they kiss the pictures. The other
day at Zarkos I saw them crowding to
kiss a round inch of the skull of St.
Nicholas and a few of Chrysostom's
erished finger joints. Their mother
tongue was Greek, but they kissed the
Ijones and went away. Round the walls

MILLIONAIRES IN THE SENATE.
Moat Slch Hen In the Tpper Home
Brarnn nt the Bottom of the Ladder.
"The v nited States senate is f reqiiir
ly called the Millionaires' club, because
fo many of its members belong to that
vavored class whose fortunes are de
noted by six figures." said a senatorand
a millionaire recently, "and this gives
a wrong impression of the character
of that body. To be sure, many of the
senators are millionaires, and there are
some who, while not so fortunate as to
be listed as millionaires, are very rich
men, but I am not stating it broadly
when I say the majority of the wealthy
men in the senate have only themselves
to thank for their riches. Many of
them began life as poor boys, and
worked and struggled their way to
prominence and success, and the same
enterprise that made them wealthy
makes them successful politicians. lb
is not always to his money that a man
owes his seat in the upper house, and
a man's self-earned wealth should enti
tle him to the respect rather than the
sneers of his contemporaries."
This is quite true. The majority of
the senators began life in humble cir
cumstances, and one of the most inter
esting of these self-made men is Sena
tor Fairbanks, of Indiana, successor to
the late Senator Yoorhees. Senator
Fairbanks is of Yankee origin, and
those characteristics common to the
descendants of the Puritans have been
useful to him in his career. His father
was born in Yermont, but went west as
far as Ohio when he was a young man
and settled there. He was a wagon
maker by trade and worked at first for
31ls cents a day. but his application,
perseverance and faithfulness won him
the regard and esteem of his employer,
who finally took him into partnership
and gave him his daughter in marriage.
Bat Mr. Fairbanks, Sr., never be
came a rich man. The present senator
was born in a log cabin, and by working
at carpentering on Saturdays and dur
ing the vacations helped to pay his way
through the Ohio Wesleyan university,
of which college he is an alumnus.
After leaving college Senator Fair
banks' first real work was the Associ
ated Press, and he maintained him
self doing nevspaper work while he
was studying law and until he was ad
mitted to the bar. He attributes his
success in life to steady application tc
one purpose, tht of becoming a suc
cessful lawyer. From this purpose he
never swerved until he was made sen
ator. Political preferment did not
tempt him, and his present office is the
first political place he has held.
But Senator Fairbanks is not thconly
one among his colleagues who has won
his way to honor and distinction from a
modest beginning. Senator Foraker,
being one of 11 children, had, perhaps,
even a harder struggle with poverty,
and to this discipline which he received
in the army, which he entered at 16,
serving until the close of the war, when
he retired with the rank of first lieu
tenant and brevet captain, his success
in life is largely due. X. Y. Tribune.
A HERMIT BECAUSE HE LIKES IT.
John Starnea Took to the Woods Dir.
Ins; the War and la There Still.
Thirty-five years ago John Starnes
lived near Blacksburg, York county,
and only a few miles from the battle
fields of Cowpens and King's mountain,
where the Americans whipped the Brit
ish. The proximity of the battlefield
did not inspire a warlike spirit in the
brenst of Starnes. During the war the
conscription officers cast covetous eyes
on the mountaineer's stalwart frame,
and Starnes took to the woods. They
searched for him, but Starnes was a
better runner than a fighter, and he
kept out of the way, out of the war, and
in the woods. He had an old musket and
a supply of ammunition, and fare in
the woods was better than in the
town. Starnes became fond of the life,
and when the war was over and con
scription officers had lost their dread
ed jiower, Starnes still remained in the
wilds of York.
And there he is now living. Ris home
is not a romantic cave in the rocks, but
is a curiously constructed, miserable
hut, much the shape of an E.skirno
snow house, without a window, and
with a hole about two feet high, Which
serves as a door. There is no fireplacf
in the house. When snow is on the
mountain and the north winds howl
over the Blue Ridge the old man builds a
fire at the entrance of his hut.
. Starnes is not a picturesque figure.
His long, white, unkempt hair and
beard, and the ragged clothes that can
hardly hang on his frame, make him
an unprepossessing object. The hermit
does not like to have visitors.and shows
temper if questioned. He forages on his
neighbors. He has relatives who have
offered him a home and means of liv
ing in comfort, but the hermit has de
clined all advances. His neighbors call
him "Wild John Starnes," but the her
mit says he is "not so damned wild a:
you might suppose." X. Y. Sun.
"The Weeplnc; of the Vine.
After the spring pruning in the vine
yards water is seen trickling down th
stems, and in France this is poetically
called the "weeping of the vine." Prof.
Cornu, a botanist, has recently studieO
this phenomenon, and he says it is due
to the abundant absorption of watei
by the roots of the vine in the spring
time. Thft water is forced through all
the branches and stems to their very
tips, and where they are cut by the
pruner it oozes out like tear drops.

Come Facta Which Farmers Shonld
Always Bear la Mind.
Probably few farmers have any idea
of the assistance which they receive
from friends who ask no reward, except
now and then a little fruit, or a few
seeds of grain. A recent number of the
Xational Stockman gives a mass of tes
timony as to the noble work done by
the birds in the destrnction of grass
hoppers and other insects. The experi
ments were made by Prof. Aughey, of
the University of Xebrask. Tabulated
results show conclusively that birds of
all kinds were doing their best to re
duce the number of locusts. The birds
of the thrush family were examined
first. The stomachs of six robins con
tained the remains of 265 locusts; threa
wood thrushes had 68 locusts; one her
mit thrush contained 19 locusts; two
olive backed thrushes had gathered in
53 locusts; two Wilson's thrushes ab
sorbed 73 of the pests, while five bat
birds bad "called" 152 of the insects.
Three blue birds yielded 677 of the
"hoppers," and one little ruby crowned
kinglet showed up 29 as the result of

Its industry. But four tufted titmict
contained no less than 250 specimens,
and nine long-tailed chickadees had se
cured by hard work 481 of these ene
mies of agriculture. Four slender
billed nuthatches had the remains of
i3 locusts. But the little warblers also
insisted in "taking a hand" in the gen
eral massacre, for seven golden war
blers turned in 77 locusts and 176 other
insects. Five black-throated green
warblers had secured 116 of the hop
pers and 104 other insects. Four black
poll warblers gathered 123 locusts and
47 other insects. Eight prairie warblers
showed the remains of 116 locusts and
a still larger number of other insects.
Seven barn swallows called in 139 lo
custs; eight cave swallows exhibited
326 of the pests; five bank swallows
contained 104, and ten purple martins
had sacrificed 265 of these insects.
Many of these birds were seen to feed
the inmates of their nests with young
But the roll call does not stop here,
even if our space should; and we would

the roll of honor includes the yellow-headed
blackbird, the vireus,
shrikes, the bobolinks, Baltimore ori
oles, Brewer's blackbirds, purple
grackle and others which ate locusts
almost without limit. Not only these
birds did their full duty, but even the
ravens, the crows, the magpies and
the blucjays followed up the good
work and consumed vast numbers of
the pests. The flycatchers and pewees
were not far behind, while 348 "hop
pers" were taken from the stomachs
cf seven night hawks. The humming
birds are generally regarded as simply
ornamental, but Prof. Aughey states
that his cat caught a specimen of the
ruby-throated humming bird, whose
stomach contained the bodies of four
locusts. Ten specimens of the yellow
billed cuckoos yielded 416 locusts and
152 other insects. But the woodpeck
ers were evidently bent on business,
and did not confine themselves to a
single article of diet, for 29 woodpeck
ers contained 853 locusts and 725 in
sects of various sorts. Even the birds
of prey seemed to have joined in the
good work, for 13 owls examined dis
played the remains of almost 600 lo
custs and other insects. Xot to be out
done by the owls, the two i-awks which
were taken gave up 378 locusts. In the
snme line followed the wild turkeys,
grouse, prairie hens and quail. Emu
lating the above good examples, a large
variety of shore birds did almost equal
ly good work, considering that their
natural food is largely found in the
In view of the above, can any
farmer have a shadow of doubt as to
the inestimable value of the (birds as
aids in protecting his crops? If a few
birds furnished such results for a sin
gle day's work, what would be the
result were a calculation to be made
of the work of all the birds for an en
tire season? All sorts of birds were
examined, from the pelican, with its
mammoth form, to the gem-like hum
ming bird, and all proved to be the
friends of the farmer in protecting his
crops from the ruthless invader. How
foolish is he who allows these his allies
to be hunted as if they were robbers
and enemies, and especially where he
allows them to be slaughtered for no
good purpose. Would space permit we
could refer to hundreds of cases, in
many of which the evidence is even

attraction of Roads.
The abnormal floods along the Missis
sippi river have provoked much discus
sion of ways and means for preventing
their future recurrence or for restrain
ing the swollen stream within safe lim
its. Some urge a stronger and higher
system of levees; others the opening of
new, or reopening of old, channels,
through which the river may be partly
or wholly diverted from its present
course; and others yet other projects,
all, of course, involving the doing ox
much work and the spending of much
money. The further suggestion is made,
as applicable for the execution of any
of these schemes, that the manual labor
required on the vast job shall be done by
the able-bodied inmates of the prisons
of the various interested states. This
suggestion is an eminently practical
one, and it leads to the further sugges
tion that just such jobs afford the best
possible field for the employment of
Country and suburban roads, for ex
ample, which in all parts, of the
union are in need of improvement. The
spring season is the best of all times
for road-building. It is the very time
when farmers and villagers are most
busy with other matters and can least
well devote attention to the roads. And
it is the time when the housed-up pris
oners are most in need of wholesome oc
cupation in the open air. There are
three elements of the problem which
unerringly point to its right solution.
If to do work when it can best be done,
with the least possible disturbance of
other industries and at the lowest cost
to the proprietor and to the greatest
benefit to the workmen, and, indeed, to
all concerned if that be business wis
dom, the inmates of our state prisons
should be set at road-making forthwith.
In that way they will get the exercise
they need, the public will get the much
needed good roads, and there will be no
competition between convict and free
labor. How much the convicts need
such work is demonstrated in the Kings
county penitentiary, where the inmates
are reported to be in danger of going
mad, some of them actually doing so,
through enforced idleness. How much
improved roads are needed almost any
suburban or rural village will testify.

DEPENDS ON FEEDING.
How to Tarn a Promising- Calf Into a
When calves are intended to be
grown for cows it is a great mistake to
feed them so heavily as to increase the
tendency to fatten. Often this can be
seen at birth in the thick, bull-like
neck and heavy head. In such case it
is best to fatten and sell to the butcher,
no matter what stock may be its ances
try. But frequently also the calf which
seems to be all right for a good milker
is fed so heavily and on such fattening
food that its tendency for life to pro
duce fat and beef rather than milk and
butter is fully established. To grow a
good cow the calf should not be stunted,
says American Cultivator. That will
impair digestion, which is just as im
portant for the cow as it is for a beef
animal. Calves intended to be kept for
cows should have much succulent food,
with enough of the kind of nutrition re
quired to make large growth. Then it
will be well developed and come early
into heat. It is always advisable to
breed as early as possible. Then when
the tendency to milk production has
been fully established, good feeding
with the best food will turn the product
of the feed into the milk pail, where it
will be most for the farmer's profit to
