stage ntoutes 1andone.
Placer and I Doroounatis, while
remarkable for the picturesque ruins
of mining camps innumerable, have
also the loss enviable distinotion of
containing two of the worst thief-In
fested stage roads in California. These
two roads each start from Auburn, the
firet running twelve miles to Gron
wood,. in. .l Dorado county, and
then four miles further on to
Georgetown; the second keeping in
Placer county and calling at Todd's
Valley (twenty miles), Forest Hill
(twenty-thiee miles), Michigan Bluffs4,
(thirty miles.) Since 1862 Wells, Fargo
4 Co., have kept offices at these various
towns sud donethe bulk of the express
buslik4ssthere. The attacks upon the
O stag loavhes and the plundering of
the'treasure boxes-have always been a
legetig0 the road, but during the-past
torffeaks, theme interruptions to sate
trateiltig have become so frequent that
linally, and in desperation, Wells,
Fargo 4 Co., have closed their offices
at all'the places mentioned excepting
of course,Auburn. What the losses oi
the company have amounted to during
this time may be Judged of by the re
port of the last six months. On Au
gust 7 th~e coach on the Forest Hill
road was stopped and $1,030 taken. On
the 22d of September the highwaymen
lalled in their calculations, for al
though the treasure was thrown down,
the muaskers had their trouble for their
pains, the box being empty. On No.
vember 1st the coach on the George
!, town road was stopped and $000 at)
stracted, and recently the same coach
yielded $300. A little "accident" hap
pened om the Georgetown roaa also on
May 14th, wyhich had its unlooked for
results. A passenger was robbed of a
watch, and last November it was re
ricovered rom Sharp, one of the most
daring of the gang, on his arrest at
Aurora for making too free with the
Bodie stage. Summing up these lIosses
it will be seen that bullion to the value
of $1,930 ivent Into high waymen's pock
ets; of the added expense attending the
e1mploytnent of detectives, at least,
$3,000 have came out of the pockets of
the company. That thia amount is far
in excess of the profits goes without
saying. Wells, Fargo & Co., ret
taking a Step which cannot but sorious
ly alleet the business interests of all
those towns, but it is in justice to them
selves that the step is taken, an really
as being the only means of self-protec
tion. By every means in their power
they have endeavored to put down rob.
bery ; detectives bave lived on the road,
4and that they have lieen successful in
their tilurtA is largely due to the apathy
of thosE0 who should have been most
active in the suppreselon of a kdis

men Messrs. Whitman and Burrel,
Little Fails, have expressed their faith
In tie revived doctrine of ensilage by
building and filling the largest silo in
the country. It measures fifty-six feet
In length and Is sixteen feet wide,
with an inside depth of twenty-two
feet. The soil was taken out for three
feet below the bottom of the alto, and
this space filled In with cobblestones,
U pon these walls. three feet thick were
laid and pointed both outside and in
side. The bottom of the silo wt s paved
with stone on top of the cobble and the
whole interior grouted with Portland
cement. A brick partition twenty
inches thick, and grouted with cement
divides the interior crosswise into two
compartments. These compartments
were Ailed -with corn fodder cut
when the ears were still in
milk. A cutting-machine run by steam
power was kept busy seven days cut
ting the todder, while three men dis
tributed and tramped it down in the
silo. About two hundred tons of fod
der were packed In each compartment.
It has been estimated that the fod der
cost, after the work was done, about
eighty cents per ton. The covering of
the silo consists of boards sixteen feet
long, tongued and grooved together in
smetions three and one half feet wide,
laid across them to bind the sections
and these were covered with other
planks together. On top of these there
are fi1ty tons of Stone in each silo, The
construction of the silo cost $1,500.
The result of this expensive expert
ment will be awaited with interest by
a large class of farmers who -are still
