Joseph Untlerwood, au eccentric and

near the Dal ton canyon. He had died of

There are few men who have met wit h
the reat cliangeH in fortune that the de-
aensed did in his seventy-two Tears of lifn.
Fie was the son of wealthy parent!, in Eng
land, and wbh a student at Cambridge nnl-
rersity for three yeura. He came to the
United htatva in 1843 with $10,000, and for
several years adtled largely to his money
In a boot factory at Buffalo, lie was
prominent in society in that city, and was
on friendly terms with ex-Preident Fill

in 1&0, and started for California with
other young men who had the gold lever.
or the horrors or starvation, thirst, cold
and heat of tho wven months Underwood
spent in coining arrows the plains he al
ways spoke v. itn a shudder. He was sev
eral years recovering bis broken health,
and when he did he had notadolbtr. Dur
ing sixteen years Underwood made a for
tune of about (75.000 in mining in Nevada
county, and then lost it all in a placer
mining scheme in Yuba connty. In a year
or two he was so poor that be was helped
by charity. Then he matie a strike in
some real estate transaction, and for sev
eral years every deal be made in real es
tate was ituecessf uL He had alxmt $110,000
In 1870 and went to Europe. He traveled
abroad for a year and became engaged to a
young widow on the steamer that brought
him back to this country, and was married
in Trinity church as soon as they arrived.
Underwood was so flush with money In
those days that he gave the minister $1,000
as a marrliiKe fee. In less than six months
Underwood and his bride bad parted in
great anger, and he gave her J40.C00 to
leave him forever. He returned to Cali
fornia and spent several yecr in Petaluma
and San Francisco, but his spirit was
brokeu. He lost his money in a mine on
the Comstock, and after more poverty
made several thousand dollars in Tomb
stone, which he subsequently lost in real
eatAte in San Diego.
The last eight or nine years of Under
wood's life were spent in the most abject
poverty imuginable. He lived alone in a
but and subsisted on money made from
the sale of firewood. He was the dirtiest
and most unkempt person in Pomona val
ley. He tinted the world and detested
.very one who hail means. His only rec
reation was in reading a Greek Testament,
from which he could repeat whole chap
ters in the original from memory. He has
numerous cousins, uephews and uncles in
Sacramento and Tehama counties, but left
no record of who they are or where they
live. Two dollars will buy all the prop

The various women's clubs and organ
izations of one sort and another that hold
DK-etinKH and banquets at the hotels Lave
so increased in the past few years that it
bus bveonie a distinct phase of hotel man
agement to care for this branch of the
business. The hotels like to cater to this
custom. The pay is prompt and the wom
en are nevi r unreasonable. A breakfast
was given at one of the hotels by a wom
an's club, ut the close of which abont B
o'clock t lie trwisurer approached the cash
ier at his lik and asked for the bill.
"What bill?" he inquired, not under
standing. "Why, our bill for today's entertain
ment the club's bilL"
The clerk rallied and consulted his books,
soon announcing the amount, Jatto. The
money was counted out and handed over.
"Well, really, ladies." said the clerk aa
he signed a receipt, "if you were men I
should offer cigars or a bottle of wine on
the part of the bouse for this unusual
promptness. Is there anything we can do
for youf You really take my breath away.
We are not accustomed to be paid for a
banquet before it-t dishes are washed."
It is the exception when all such bills
are not paid with equal promptness by
these gatherings of women. New York

The picture in the Astor House whose
frame is so made as to look like a game
bag started a talk on hunting and the al
most extinct buffalo.
"I have just come across the continent,"
said one of the party, "and you would
think there hud been plenty of buffalo once
if you could see the piles of buffalo bones
along the Northern Pacific. There are
carloads of them stacked up along the
road. The farmers gather them from the
prairies and ship them east to the fertilizer
works. Jlany of the settlers there make
their entire living by this occupation. The
buffalo trails are still perfectly plain on
the prairies in the tall grass, though nr
more herds will ever file along them.
Think of the enormous number of hoof
beats it took to so wear out the sod and
pack down the earth!"

Dogs were first, admitted to the conrt of
England in the reign of Henry YDX Un
der the reign three dogs have been elevated
to the highest canine dignities on account
of their aristocratic families and their own
peculiar merits. The names of the aristo
cratic trio are Marco, Boy and Spot. Marco
is the queen's favorite, and he used to be
jealous of John Brown. His ancestry can
be traced baek to the Crusaders. He la
what they call in England a Pomeranian,
and at one of the recent dog shows he won
the first prize the mug of honor. The
other favorite, Roy, is a collie, and Spot is
a fox terrier with a record -of twenty-two
rats in a quarter of an hour.
These canine lords have their residences
with their special names. Her majesty's
dog place is divided into three parts, the
queen's veranda, collie court and umbrella
court. The veranda is the principal one.
It ia a covered gallery around the kennel,
and the queen likes to walk there.
Each kennel has a dining room and a
bedroom. The floor of the dining room is
separated from the veranda by an iron
grating. It is paved with red and bine
bricks, and the furniture consists of a
trough always full of fresh water. The
bedrooms have two large windows, gener
ally kept open for the purpose of ventila
tion, and in a snug corner in each room
there is a very low bed with a mattress of
Umbrella court gets its name from the
big umbrella in the middle of it, under
which the big dogs can shelter themselves
from the snn and rain. A host of servants
wait upon the canine nobility, and the
qneen is very severe with the officials who
do not pay proper attention to her dogs. A
chef ia provided for them, and his instruc
tions are to vary the menu of the dinners
of her majesty's pets and to consult their
tastes. Sportsmen's Review.
