E, kJ. J1aldw1in, now% of California,
everywhere knowii as Licky Baldwin,
worked oil his lat her'i farm when
youngin Indiana. After tweity-tlye
years of trial at various pursuits Ie
drifted Into the bonanza distriet, Neva
da, and in a few years, by well-judgad
ventures in mining stocks, realized
some millions. He became publicly
known by building "The Baldwin,''
now so favorably known as a popular
house, on Market street, 8an Francisco,
275 to 210 feet. Included in the struc
ture Is Baldiwin's Theatre. The whole,
including furniture, cost $3,000,000.
Traveling through Los Angelos county
ho fancled and bought a Spanish grant
of 60,000 acres of bountifully watered
garden land, and laid It out. in princely
style. Of this 13,000 acres are moist
bottom land, needing no irrigation.
Outside of this he has artillcally irri
gated most of the property by means
of six miles of eight-inch pipe, anid
beautiful lakes are formed here and
there, with rustle bridges an( cther
adornments. Some fifty rustle cottages
are the homes of his army of working
people. All sorts offarim buildings are
tastefully arranged, iid flowing arte
slan springs abound. of purest water.
The orchard-has 1,200 acres, with 18,000
orange and lemon trees, 2,000 almonds,
300 Italian chestnuts, eighty acres of
English walnuts, 500 acres of choice
grapes, Innumerable apples, pears,
- plums, eaches and ls, lie has i;0,000
euealyptus trees of twenty-seven varle

A Wonidorrul Box.
A box constructed of connon flooring is
placed upon a couple of carpenter's dogs.
The box is about four feet high b)y three inl
length and two and a half in breadth. The
strips of flooring are securely nailed to up
right standards, one in each corner. The
angles are also securely strapped at inter
vals with iron straps screwed firmly to the
Iimber, both at the sides and at the bottom.
The lid is constructed of the samei materials
as the box, has a pair of heavy strap hinges,
and is fastened by a hasp and staple, Ihe
latter receiving a powerful padlock. Two
Carpenters were recently called upon tle
stage, is a special committee, to examine
the receptable and report whether there
was any false bottom or aniiy imiode of open
ing it except by unilocking it and lifting the
lid. After a full inspection, dring which
the box was turned over, sounlded, pulled
about, and tested inl every possible nner
known to the trade, the committee pro
nounced it a strongly mado packing box of
the ordinary pattern. One of them, at re
qulest of Macalister, then closedl tihe box, af
fixed the padlock, turned the key, and lut
the latter in his pocket. As a further pre
cautIon 1he tied upi tile padlock in such a
manner that it was impossibile to get at the
4 keyhlole. Th'le piano played slowly, and a
areen was mlovedl bet ween the audience
and the box, but not so as to conceal it en
tirely from view, or to admnit a substitution.
T1he magician passed behind the screen as
noiselesly as a cat. In somewhat less than
:10 secondls the screen was withdrawn, andl
tihe commnittee were requested to exalmine
the box. Meanwhile the magician had inys
teriouisly vanished. Thiey reported that the
lock hiad niot been tampieredl withI, unlocked
it, and lifted the lid, when uip heaiped the
mysterious magician, like .Jack ini the fa
mnous toy, or the goblin in the Arabian Ie
gendi. The question was howv lhe got in
there The next procedure was to lock the
magician in the box, with the same careful
attention to dletail that had becen previously
observed. Music trickled froml theo keys
of an uinseen piano, and the green screen,
1;almost as thin as gauze, s1l(d slowly into
place, andl remainedi for about 20 seconds.
Not the slighest sound1( was hieardl behind
the screen ; the dropping of a pin wiold~
have disturbied tile silence of that breathles
20 second~s. The screenl was withdrawn
and revealed the magician sitting upon~ the
lid of the box. Tlhe lock had nlot been taml
pered withI or disturbed, nor had the assis-.
taut beent out of the view of the audience
for a single instant. The trick was the
cause of a great (lea! af speculation among
the amateurs who were present.
