THE ROCKLIN PICNIC. Under the auspices of Kocklin Lodge, No. 196, A. O. U. W.. a picnic was held at Work men's Grove, near Kocklin, yesterday, in honor of the anniversary of the Lodge. There were representatives of the Ancient Order of Work men present from Sacramento (two Lodges), Rocklin, Colfax, Auburn, Newcastle, Lin coln and Folsom. There were also present a go idly number of members of the American Legion of Honor and Knights of Honor. Light full cars conveyed the Sacramento delegation to the grounds, which were reached about 11 A. M , the train leaving Sacramento at 9a. H. The up-country delegations were i already on the ground when the Sacramento people arrived. The picnic grounds consist of twenty acres of pine grove. To the north, east and west beautiful oak-shaded rolling hills afford full opportunity for woodland rambles for miles, and pasture lands adjacent to the grove, well shaded with fine oaks, con stitute an enlargement of the grounds. Rocklin Lodge, which has a lease of the grounds, has erected thereon a dancing plat form, 10 by 00 feet, with a canvas cover 40 by M) feet. The grounds are well grassed, ..nd had the picnic been held two weeks earlier they would have been found greener and in far better condition, but unavoidable circumstances prevented that. The Lodge had in charge of the grounds these commit tees: Arrangements, A. H. Curtis, John Sweeney, W. F. Schnetze, John Davis, I. Levieon ; on games, G. W. Rowland, John Davis, Cady of Union, and Blank of Sacra mento Lodges, of Sacramento ; on water and ice, W. V, Scheutze ; on floor manage ment, A. Davis, S. Wentworth, R. Nixon, J. Haney. These committees proved prompt and efficient in every respect, and so far as was in their power, the picuic was made a success. It was a drawback that a heavy norther prevailed all day. Had it been a southerly breeze, the attendance would un doubtedly have been larger. As it was, fully 2,000 people- were upon the grounds. At the outset an oration was delivered hy E. M. Reading, of San Francisco, Master Workman, (i. W. Rowland acting as Presi dent of the Day. Dancing was then in augurated, to the music of the First Artil lery Band, and - continued throughout the day, to the calling of I. B. K. Church. Oae thing that Sacramentans especially enj ryed was the bountiful simply of Blue Canyon water, well iced. On the north of tho grounds a beautiful stream of clear water runs, and this for some two miles was the favorite resort of fern hunters, who were re warded by finding the finest possible speci mens of the " Maiden Hair " fern, the fronds being young, beautifully green and very vigorous. Racing by youths and adults was indulged in, and prizes awarded to the successful contestants. Refreshments were to be had in quantity of Peterson, who was the caterer for the oc casion, and teams were on hand for all who desired to make brief trips into the surround ing country. Aside from the north wind the only thing that marred the pleasure of the day was the late return. The train came back as the fifth wheel to a slow and delayed freight train, and few of the Sacramento people reached their homes before half-past 8 last night. " The Eqijescukriccldm." — A good many people have puzzled their brains over the above title in the Kecord-Union advertising columns. It was solved at Sixteenth and X streets last night in a capacious circus tent, where James Mcl'ue presented a novel and interesting performance. It consisted of three very well-trained horse*, Americus by Monday, Ralston of Hamilton stock, and Lincoln, a Messenger. The first horse has been in training but five, and the others, one being two and one three years old, but eight months, but they are obedient in the com pit teat sense, and do tricks that are remark ably clever. They are handsome, well trained animals, and seem to have been con quered by the power if kindness alone. McCue bandies them exceedingly well. Be tween the exhibitions of the three horses, the two last performing together, there was tumbling by a very clever clown and two good acrobats, exhibitions of strength by Mons. Milo — of the iron jaw — trapeze exercises by a graceful woman, Miss Pauline, remarkable lilting and swinging of great weights by a second strong man, some com ical acts by the clown and assistants, the tricks of a learned pig, a double trapeze act by Pauline and Leporeui), a final act of strength by Milo, and a second exhibition by the horse Americus. It is a good circus, on a limited scale, without ring riding, but has the added attraction of three trained horses that, if taught in the tim? stated, are very remarkable animals. A matinee this after noon and a final performance to-night. HiMOROis Lecture To-Night. Eli Per kins, the well-known humorist and lecturer, will arrive from the East this morning and deliver a lecture at the Congregational Church in this city thii evening. His subject will be " The Philosophy of Fun and the Perkins Family." This is pronounced by the press at the East as a great success, and enjoyable as witty and laughter-producing to the highest degree. It is announced that the lecturer will commence at 8 o'clock, sharp, and continue till somebody requests him to stop." Admission, 50 cents. Y. M. C. A. — Services will be conducted to-morrow under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Association, at 9:30 A.

Late Arrests. — The following names were on the slate at the police station at 12 o'clcok last night : John Kelly, a lodger ; Charles Fagan, for battery, by officer Jackson. Westman's Circus .— Equescurricnlum and Equine Paradox for a name is simply horrible, and the only unpleasant thing about the show. We call it a circu*, and "till it isn't a circus, as there is no riding. But the horses are a show of themselves. The bay horse Americus surpasses all horses ever ex hibited here in point of intelligence and train ing. He is a stallion, only four years old, and while he seems to be vicious, his trainer seems to control bim at will, and make him do all that a horse is capable ot doing, while the colts, two and three years old, are the best controlled animals of their age that were ever on exhibition. The learned p ! g " sur passes all animals for intelligence. The tra peze performance is good, but the tumbling of Joe Petty is the best we have ever seen. Take it all in all we must call it a first-class show, and well worth the money. They give a matinee at 2 P. M. to-day, and again to night. The admission is only 50 cents for grown persons and 25 cents for children. Go and see them and see what horses can do. * " Why is it that the Fulton Market, Fifth and X streets, is haudlirg such immense quantities of strawberries?"

A race-course is about to be laid ont near i Redding, Shasta county. . The railroad company will soon erect a , new and commodious depot at Tehama. Carp-raising is being extensively en gaged in in Calaveras and Butte counties. Cold north winds and frosty mornings. Grapes all killed, and most all gardens, potatoes and corn have shared the same fate about Forestville. — [Petaluma Courier. From the Inyo Independent it is learned j that the well-known steamer Bessie Brady, , which was launched at Owens Lake in the i sum. of lb7'-, caught .fire and was to- I tally destroyed on Wednesday evening, the 11 th instant. There seems to be a diversity of opinion in regard to the grain crops, but all agree , that they will not be as larze as was sup r posed a few weeks ago. Every field of i barley will at least make hay, while many j will turn out a good yield of grain. The town of Lunning, Nev , says the | True Fi-iuri-, continues to increase in pop j ulation, and the mining districts in its near r vicinity are fairly entered upon the sum r mer campaign of development of the ' mines before discovered, and in prospect ! ing for new ones. Building is going on at a good pace, and the usual bustle of a new camp prevails. Persons just in from Wood River say that the Tribune has been correct in advis ing our readers not to be in a hurry about | rushing into that country. They say that it will be three or four weeks yet before I the country will be in good condition for prospecting. There are more men already there now than can get employment. — [Salt Lake Tribune. A few days ago a squaw named Maggie disappeared from the camp out in the val ley, and the Indians can get no trace of her. Her loving buck is sadly demoralized, and has hunted his missing spouse in every direction, but fails to find her. She is a Piute squaw, and came from Reno a year or two ago, and it is probable that she has gone back to her native laud.— [Plumas National. Charles E. Greene, of Piainfield, was in town yesterday. He informs us that the crops in his vicinity are looking very well, as far as the summer fallow is concerned. Mr. Greene thinks the fallowed grain will average 25 bushels to the acre throughout the county. In his section the proportion of summer-fallowed grain to the winter sown is about one acre in ten. — [Woodland Mail, May ISth. But a short time ago a tree was cut down on the ranch of Henry Silver, two miles from Chico, which pales the famous Colusa county tree into a mere sapling. The mon arch was brought down by George Hand, who worked seven days to grub it out. It measured eight feet and a half in diameter at the stump. Two men worked three weeks continuously in converting it into cord- wood. It produced twelve cords of four-foot wood, forty tiers of two-foot wood, and twenty-five tiers of sixteen-inch stove-wood, besides a huge pile of rough wood, branches, and bark, which was burned up on the ground. The tree con tained fifty pounds of delicious honey. — [Chico Record. BRIEF SAN FRANCISCO ITEMS. The Pacific Stock Exchange has declared a dividend of $50 to each member. About $50,000 in specie was received at San Francisco Thursday, chiefly from •Mexico. Thomas Connolly, who jumped bail here during a trial for burglary, has been ar rested at San Jose. Mrs. Mary Woodward, shot by Dr. Woodward, is rapidly succumbing to blood poisoning. The Police Surgeon has given her up. ' The British steamer Strathairly is hourly expected with a cargo of coolies from Hongkong. Scenes similar to those on the Altonower are feared. The Mint in this city will be closed for the annual clean-up sometime next month. Toe new Superintendent, Mr. Burton, will probably assume his duties on the Ist of July. All the wheat vessels cleared have sailed, except the two which cleared Thursday. Seamen are still scarce, or a dozen wheat ships now in the harbor would be on their way to Europe. A large quantity of whale oil in barrels and casks is stored by the water-front warehouses and the sidewalks in their vi cinity. The warm weather at present has started the oil flowing, and it stands in pools on the walk and in the gutter. The shipments of treasure overland from San Francisco for the first half of the cut rent month were as follows : Cold coin JISO.OOO Silver bars 19.600 Currency 40,000 Total .' 8239.000 The foreign impoits at San Frar cisco in April were valued at 51,101,000, a decrease of $196,000 as compared with the same month last year. Of this total $776,300 was in specie, chiefly from Mexico, and $192,300 was in merchandise impoited in bonded cars. »— ♦ . — . Why Eli Perkins Became a Lect urer and Writer.— l studied law once in the Washington Law School. In fact, I was admitted to the bar. I shall never forget my first case. Neither will my client. I was called upon to defend a young man for passing counterfeit money. I knew the young man was innocent, be cause I lent him the money that caused him to be arrested. Well, there was a hard feeling against the young man in the county, and I pleaded for a change of venue. I made a great plea for it. I can remember, even now, how fine it was. It was filled with choice rhetoric and passion ate oratory. I quoted Kent and Black stone and Littleton, and cited precedent after precedent from the Digest of State Reports. I wound up with a tremendous argument, amid the applause of all the younger members of the bar. Then, san guine of success. I stood up and awaited the Judge's decision. It soon came. The Judge looked me full in the face and said : " Your argument is good, Mr. Perkins, very good, and I've been deeply interested in it, and when a case comes up that your argument fits, I shall give your remarks all the consideration that they merit. Sit down '." This is why I gave np law and resorted to lecturing and writing for the newspapers. — [Eli, in the New York Sun. What is Pure BAKING POWDER? Cream of Tartar and Bi- carbonate Soda. -DrOT-EEXSB'O' HI.SB. I Before BAKING POWDERS were made or thought of, Cream of Tartar and Soda were used in every household for bread raising. Their nse would have continued to this day, were it not for the difficulty of obtaining these ingredients pure. Cream of Tartar is often adulterated with CHALK, ALUM, CLAY, PLASTER OF PARIS and other INJURIOUS MIXT- URES, and SODA with COMMON SALT. Owing to this the housekeeper found it im- possible to depend upon what was procurable. The Bread was constantly varying in taste and was generally unsatisfactory. Then Baking or Yeast Powders began to be compounded, and found ready sale. Manu- facturers pushed the resources of the Chem- ist to the utmost to find out CHEAP SUB- STITUTES FOR CREAM OF TARTAR. Some manufacturers put out Baking Powders composed of some of the following ingre- dients: ALUM, PHOSPHATES, LIME, TARTARIC ACID, MURIATE OF AM- MONIA ; and add STARCH. FLOUR and TERRA ALBA to give the mixture bulk and weight, and at the same time preserve the appearance of an honest powder. The only merit of these powders is their raising properties, and on these the manu- facturers lay great stress. They do not make good bread, and the ingredients have been proved to be positively injurious. WHO WILL KNOWINGLY USE SUuH AT THE EXPENSE OF HEALTH? Other manufacturers, more careful of their reputation, make Baking Powders of Cream of Tartar and Soda, and add Flour and Starch for the purpose of CHEAPENING, which of course impairs the strength. These they call "necessary preserves," and they loudly claim that their powders possess NO INJURIOUS QUALITIES. On one point all the manu- facturers agree. They claim that their powder is PURE, STRICTLY PURE, ABSO- LUTELY PURE, UNIVER- SALLY PURE ; but PURE WHAT? To prove their assertions many publish testimonials — extracts from paid advertise- ments. They advertise chemical analyses, showing amount of gas evolved in passing a given point, and a vast amount of pleasant and very readable matter which has nothing whatever to do with the subject. - Which one of these by any accident tells of what their Baking Powder is composed Perhaps if they did the cheapness of the ma- terials used would be quite as much of a revelation to consumers as the materials themselves. WHY DO THEY NOT PUB- LISH THEM? From the beginning up to the present time the Baking Powder business has been largely a REPETITION OF MISREPRESENTA- TION and FRAUD, and we look for any amount of virtuous indignation at our giv- ing it away to the public. But if it stop, in part only, the use of some of the VILE MIXTURES for food purposes, we will con- sider ourselves well paid. The ease and cheapness with which adulterated Powders can be made, and the conse- quent large profits, will justify any amount of advertising if the people can only be in- duced to buy them. Nothing has yet been found to take the place of Cream of Tattar and Soda in a pure Baking Powder, in wholesomeness, strength and ttii_;iency. TI I NEW ENGLAND BAKING POW- DER is made on this principle. It is com- wed of Cream of Tartar and Soda of the highest grade and nothing else. WE CLAIM NO SECRET PROCESS. Our pow- der is combined in proper proportions, thor- oughly mixed by Steam Power, so that in using the smallest quantities the proportions are ALWAYS THE SAME. It is kiln-dried at a given temperature, so that all moisture is expelled. (Soda and Cream of (Tartar combined without careful drying before packing will effervesce and de- teriorate in strength.) Then the powder is put at occe in tins air tight, and will keep for years in any climate without deteriorat- ing or hardening. It is packed in tins ot 4 oz., 8 oz., 12 and 16 oz., FULL NET WEIGHT. With these ingredients, pure, anybody can make just as good a Baking Powder as the NEW ENGLAND, PROVIDED always they use the same proportions and quality of material, and take the same care that we do. We warrant our powder to be exactly as we represent it. WE INVITE CHEMICAL ANLYSIS and the most rigid examination. IT WILL STAND THE lODINE TEST, which some manufactures so decry and ridicule, but which, nevertheless, will expose Starch and Flour when used. WE ASK FOR PRACTICAL TRIALS by housekeepers in comparison with any other powder, and we know the result will be a verdict in favor of the NEW ENGLAND POWDER. Mr IF HOUSEKEEPERS AT A DISTANCE ARE UNABLE TO PROCURE THE NEW ENGLAND BAKING POWDER, WE WILL GLADLY FORWARD SAMPLES FREE ON RECEIPT OF ADDRESS, AND MENTIONING THIS PAPER. To those who prefer to use Cream of Tar- tar and Soda in the old-fashioned way we offer our brands of each, which we warrant to be pure. They are packed in lit. pack- ages, net weight. It has been said to ua that we could not succeed in selling Pure Baking Powder, Pure Soda, Pure Cream of Tartar ; that Califor- nia's would not pay for them. Our experience has been different. We have now been packing these goods for some time, and IT IS NO EXPERIMENT. By the slow process of one telling another, our sales have been constantly increasing, and we now propose to see what AN OPEN STATE- MENT OF FACTS will do. It will at any rate let the public know that PURE GOODS CAN BE OBTAINED AND WHERE TO GET THEM. NEWTON BROS & CO, 204 AND 206 CALIFORNIA STREET, SAX IIMM -in CALIFORNIA. ■■mm BOCA BREWING CO.
