RelativetotiikGlandees.— horse
men of experience declare that die recent re
ports to the effect that there were numer
ous cases of glanders among homes in this
county are incorrect. While there may
have been a few cases found, most of those
said to have been glanders were nothing
worse than colds. The following descrip
tion of the disease may be of benefit to
many readers of the Record-Union who
have been uncertain as to its symp
toms: "If this disease always assumed
the same character, and every glandered
horse presented the three special symptoms
— greenish, sticky, and at times, bloody dis
charges at the nose, the hard, painless and
adherent swollen glands at the jaws, and
above all, the peculiar and characteristic
ulcerations of the mucous membrane upon
the cartilage of the cavities of the nest —
there would be no difficulty in recognising
it. Unfortunately it assumes many forms.
Sometimes there are only Blight glandular
enlargements, at others, discharge from the
nose, while iv a third animal neither of
these will exist, and only small ulcers will
be detected in the upper angle of the nos
trils. The horse may appear in a healthy
condition, with nothing apparently wrong
to a casual observer, able to do its
work without signs of fatigue, and yet
communicate the loathsome disease to all,
even mankind, who may come in contact
with it. If the disease has assumed an
acute form, the appetite will be impaired,
the pulse accelerated, general prostration,
staring coat, watery eyes, yellowish or pur
ple streaks on the membrane of the nose, a
discharge from the nasal chambers, varying
from a watery to a sticky mucous char
acter. Little red elevations will frequently
be observed on the mucous membrane of
the nose, which develop into ulcers of ir
regular form and color. The glands on the
inside of the jaw are enlarged, hard and
lumpy. Sometimes a cough is present. In
the latter stages the nasal discharge be
comes bloody, foetid, and so profuse as to
cause suffocation, if the disease is chronic
there is invariably ulceration of the mucous
membrane of the nasal chamber, but the
ulcers are sometimes so high up as to be
seen with difficulty. There will also be
discharges from both nostrils, which vary
from a thin watery* to a thick and bloody
nature, frequently very offensive. In the
chronic state there is no fever, and the ani
mal appears to be in excellent health ami
A Correction. — In the remarks concern
ing the High School, published in the
Record-Union yesterday morning, an error
was made by substituting " University" for
"High School," by which it was made to
read that "Greek has not been for some
time and is not now taught in the Univer
sity."" The reader no doubt saw that High
School was intended instead of University.
The sentence stated a simple fact and should
have read : "It has been popularly sup
posed and repeatedly stated that the pres
ent High School conforms to the Univer
sity requirements so as to fit pupils for
entry to either the scientific or classical
courses at Berkeley, but an examination of
the curriculum of the University shows
that this is an error, since the study of
Greek is a prerequisite to entry in the clas
sical course of the University, and Greek
has not been for some time and is not now
taught in the Sacramento High School."
Didn't Like It. — There came near being
a neighborhood quarrel of a lively charac
ter in the lower part, of the city yesterday.
A citizen who had been jubilating during
the day felt that his appetite craved some
thing unusual for dinner, and he prepared
a Welsh rarebit from Limburger cheese
As the odor began circulating in the neigh
borhood, the people commenced elevating
their noses and wondering what was the
matter. As the smell increased their curi
osity was changed to anxiety and fear, and
each lamily sent out a committee to ascer
tain who had been stirring up a decaying
body*. Kinallv the place in which the
trouble originated was ascertained ; but the
bravest of the neighbors hesitated to enter
the door, for fear of finding something
dreadful. When the facts were ascertained
tiie fiat went forth that '. imbuger in a
sizzling condition would not be rated.
Metropolitan Theater. — Whiteley's
■* Hidden Hand " company will appear at
the Metropolitan this afternoon and even
ing, under the management of Harry M.
Clark. Miss Fannie Francis, the handsome
singing soubrette, will appear a.-- "Archie,
the Newsboy,'" and " Capitola," in which
she has achieved much success She will
be supported by Rob. V Ferguson, come
dian, vocalist and dancer, in his fine per
sonation of " Wool," and a good company.
Incidental to the play, ana in the planta
tion cotton-picking scene. Ed. Haley (late
of Ha., ilj - Mastodon Minstrels) intro
duces songs and dances, Miss Francis gives
vocal selections, Ferguson a number of spe
..allies and imitations, and the Virginia
Cabin Singers appear in a Southern jubilee.
The version of the play given by this com
pany is said to be materially different from
that with which the public is familiar.
An Old OFFENDER Arrested. — Officers
Arlington and Farrell arrsstcd last Wednes
day an old offender named Tom Jackson,
with various alias for stealing a coat
from the store of S. S. Nathan <" Co.,
Third and X streets. The officers arrested
him with the coat in his possession. Some
time ago be was arrested for burglarizing
the Pacific Stables, but the charge was iv
duced to petit larceny, and he received sen
ten, of one hundred days in the Comity
Jail. It is the intention to add the fact of
prior conviction of larceny to the present
charge, which will be apt to send him to
the Suit, Prison for a while.
Chinese Jubilation.^— On a balcony on
Uie north side of I street, just above Sec
ond, a Chinese band was discoursing music
of a fearful and wonderful character yes
terday, keeping .1 up unceasingly from
morning until night. Many people im
agined that it wits intended as a compli
ment to the great American day. but a
Chinaman who was interviewed on the
subject explained that it was a demonstra
tion in honor of the birthday of a gentle
man named Quong Qung. "You sabbee,
he live long time ago— two, lice thousand
year ago — and he mighty good man ; yes,
he weily good fellow/
Wanted an Officer.— A young lady,
accompanied by two or three others, ap
plied at the Station-house about noon yes
tarda) for an officer. Her grievance .was
that a few minutes previously she met a
woman on J street, who became indignant
because the complainant looked at her and
showed her anger by slapping the young
woman's face. As there were no officers
present, the party assaulted was advised to
call later and swear out a warrant, which
she expressed a willingness to do.

Chautauqua Assembly. '•"
Eds. Record-Union ; The golden sunset
hour of the evening preceding the Chau
tauqua assembly found us rushing behind
the " iron horse" toward Monterey, where
we arrived after a pleasant trip of three
and a half hours from San Francisco. Bits
of landscape gardening at some of the sta
tions cheered our vision, and the view
through the valley, where the distant hills
wore the faint blue tinge which "lends en
chantment," was delightful. Summer sun
shine crowned the whole, and as we fol
lowed the winding Pajaro river our land
scape was complete. At Del Monte we
left a number of passengers, but more
passed on to Pacific Grove, where a friendly
greeting awaited us from the few Sacra
mentans who had arrived before.
The only portion of Tuesday's programme
to which we had the pleasure of listening
was the lecture on " The Christian Revolu
tion During the Period of the Roman Em
pire," by Professor Bernard Moses, of the
State University. It was followed by a
charmingly rendered solo by Mrs. Blake-
AlviTson. of San Francisco. The C. L. S.
C. programme for Wednesday, July 2d,
began at 10 a. m. with a very "interesting
paper on the character and writings of
George Herbert, by Mrs. M. 11. Field, of
San Jose, which wis followed by an excel
lent lecture on ''"Economic Entomology,"
by Professor Matthew Cooke, the well
known and efficient entomologist. We
quite agree with Mr. Cooke that the subject
is one of the greatest importance, particu
larly to Californians, and well worthy of a
place in the curriculum of the C. L. 8. C.
The influence of 50,000 students ought to
awaken a deep interest in a subject which
so directly bears upon the financial status
of the agricultural, viticultui.il and horti
cultural interests. At 3p.m. a large party
was formed^for a botanical excursion, and
we strolled through Forest avenue gather
ing ferns, vines and dowers until we almost
forgot the distance in the enchantment of
the hour. The piney fragrance, strength
ened by the royal sunshine, and the pecu
liar soilness of the atmosphere, weie de
lightful, and ought to be a sufficient cure
for at least ha 1 the ills of humanity. Na
ture has donned both brightness and beauty
this season for the visitors at the Grove,
for there are many gardens blooming with
a profusion of lovely flowers, and it seems
as though little could be added for greater
attraction to the multitude. ii. S. B.
Pacific Grove, July 2, 1884.
A Card from Mr. Crittenden.
Ens. Record-Union : While seeking
earnestly to avoid appearing in public
print, it seems absolutely necessary, in
justice to myself, that I make this brief
.statement of what Occurred between Mrs.
Folger and myself at the High School, and
wherein I was considered discourteous :
Mrs. Folger sent one of the pupils to me
on Tuesday morning, and asked if the
middle class might be excused until the
chemistry recitation, a period of two hours,
I objected to excusing them, and said I
wished them to be kept at work as usual.
Later in the day, I was informed that the
scholars of that class had been dismissed,
and that some of them left the grounds.
(In Wednesday morning I remarked to
Mrs. Folger that she had dismissed the
pupils of the middle class on the day be
fore. She replied that she did not. Lan
swered that members of the class had told
me that they had been excused, and she
replied that she had not excused them
from the ground!. I then gave her the
names of pupils who had left the grounds,
and said that 1 should expect them to be
kept at their work as usual hereafter.
Later, when the members of the senior
and middle classes were at Study, though
in different rooms on the second Boor, I
thought one of the classes might be alone.
Knowing that Mrs. Folger was with one of
them, 1 sent a pupil of the junior class and
asked her to please take charge of both
In no way whatever was I lacking in
courtesy to Mrs. Folger.J

Yesterday's Banquets. — After the pro
cession yesterday Colonel James McNassar,
Grand Marshal, entertained his aids at his.
the Golden Eagle, Hotel. They were
seated at two long rows of tables, which
were spread with the most tempting and
toothsome viands. The Colonel made a
speech of welcome, which was responded
to on behalf of the aids by It. M. darken.
Toast.- were offered and responded to by
the following gentlemen: General John
T. Carey, Adjutant-General Cosby, D. .1.
Simmons, Dr. G. G. Tyrrell and Col. T. W.
Sheehan. On the other side of tin- dining
room Captain C.J. White was entertaining
hi- company, the Sarsfield Guard. The
entire company was present, also some in
vited guests. Speeches were made by the
following persons: Captain White, Gen
eral Carey, Colonel Sheehan. Lieutenant
Rivet., Adjutant Neary, Corporal Hughes,
Lieutenant Sheehan, Lieutenant Flaherty,
Alexander McCrea and others. The Pio
neers, as is their usual custom, had their
annual banquet and kept -open house"
throughout the day.
Buggy Smashed. — While Engine No. l
and hose-cart were going up M street las!
night, responding to the alarm of tire, a
gentleman named Henbane accompanied
by a lady, drove down Fourth street in a
top-buggy. They apparently tow the en
gine, but did not notice that the cart was
following closely, and as a result the hose
cart struck one of the hind wheels of the
buggy, upsetting it and throwing the occu
pants out. The buggy top got caught on
one Of the shafts of the cart, was torn
loose from the buggy, and carried on the
shaft about a block, frightening the horse
drawing the cart so that he became almost
unmanageable, and the fireman riding on
it had a narrow escape from being thrown
off flic horse was finally stopped, and
tin- wreck removed from the shaft. The
occupants of the buggy were not hurt be
yond a few slight bruises, but the buggy
was badly damaged.
Company l'> Hop. — Th celebration festivi
ties closed yesterday with a hop given by
Company if First Artillery Regiment, at
Armory Hall, and notwithstanding that the
gallant" warriors had been campaigning all I
day. each trooper toe-tripped gracefully and
gloriously through quadrille, waltz and

mystic hour. Few, few are they who hold

False Alarm.— About 10:30 last night
an alarm of tire was turned in from bos
If), Seventh and N streets, but there was no
foundation for it beyond the desire of some
men to be smart. 'They tried to have an
alarm turned in from Ninth and V streets,
but were unsuccessful. They then, in a
hack, went to Seventh and N streets, (old
the clerk of the grocery at that corner that
there was a fire at Ninth and N streets,

good showing that he turned in an alarm.

The Native Sons and Daughters of the
Golden West — the real original article —
were present ill Sacramento yesterday in
great numbers, every train from the moun
tains having brought about as many as the
i platforms of the baggage cam, upon which
they are permitted to ride free, would ac
commodate. They were all rigged out in
their best garments, and appeared to think
the white man's jubilee very interesting.
Yesterday afternoon a citizen who had
taken half a dozen drinks too many went
into the back room of a saloon, sat down
and fell asleep. But for his heavy snoring
he would have been let alone; but some of
the " boys" concluded they would waken
him. A small Chinese bomb was exploded
beneath his chair without effect. Then
one eight or nine inches in length was dis
charged, but still he slumbered. Another
of the same size was tried, and when it
burst some of the supports of the chair
were scattered, and the electric light globe
shattered, but the only effect upon the
sleeper was to cause him to look up, as
though he thought some one was calling
him. After looking around vacantly for a
few seconds, he fell asleep again, and it was
not believed that the angel Gabriel could
rouse him.
Tun Hoi- — Emmet Wells' Hoj,
Circular for June 27th remarks as follows
concerning hop prospects: " The week
shows no improvement in the English
plantations ; in fact, each cablegram re
ceived notes the condition growing worse,
and the season is now getting so far ad
vanced that considerable apprehension is
felt for the safety of the crop. Favorable
weather may do much for the vine within
the next two weeks to come, but the plant
by this time must have suffered so severely
as to leave doubts of recuperation. The result
of this news has had a most marked effect
upon our market, a sharper advance hav
ing taken place on the week than during
any period since the memorable fall of
1882. The advance on all classes (except
foreign) has been fully eight cents per
pound, a- will be seen by our revised quota
tions. The growing scarcity of hops, both
in. this country and Europe, with two
months of heavy brewing season before we
enter upon the new crop, also helps to in
fluence prices, and while a good deal was
said ami printed about a hop famine this
time two years ago, we think that one is
nearer now than then ; yet there is no
doubt that hops will be found in sufficient
quantity to carry the brewers down to the
new season, without being compelled 'o re
| sort to substitutes. While the accounts from
England continue discouraging, advices
from the continent of Europe nave been uni
formly favorable until within a few weeks
past, when cold nights cheeked the growth
of the vim-. Favorable weather will change
all this, and Germany may be able to pro
duce a large surplus for exportation to Kng
land, in which event she will become
strong competitors of ours."
Locomotives Decocatf.d. — Several of the
locomotives on duty yesterday were deco
rated by their engineers and firemen very

Josh Billings.
a striking instance of the failure which
may attend the efforts of a man, before he
finds his proper sphere, is found in the his
tory of Henry W. Shaw, better known to
the world r.s josh Billings. That he is a
man of national interest, may be inferred
from the fact that his Farmer's AH
m'aiax," in its second year, reached the
enormous sale of one hundred and twenty
seven thousand copies, and during its
successful career ol ten years, the author
and publisher have each received (30,000
mi their share of the profits. Both his
lather and grandfather were members of
Congress, the former ting as political
manager for Henry Clay. From the time
of bis birth; in 1820, until 1834, his life was
spent at Lanesboro, Berkshire county,
Massachusetts. Going West in 1834 he
led a frontier life, and engaged in
the various occupations of steering
steamboats, keeping a country store, ami
auctioneering. At 45 year- of age, while
editing a small paper in Poughkeepsie, to
which place he had come for the purpose
of educating his daughters, he compared
several of his humorous essays with those
of Artemus Ward, and wondered why his
own had failed to strike the popular taste
Concluding that the secret of success lay J;:
the phonetic spelling, he adopted it in his
" Essa on a Mitel," and disposed of it for
$1 50. his first earnings in the line of litera
ture. The essay was extensively copied,
and further efforts in the line soon made
his name a household word. From this
time to the present his career has be* one
of continual financial success. From the
New York Weekly alone his income lias
been, for years, $100 per week, for the half
column lie contributed to each issue. Dur
ing the last seventeen years he has delivered
a thousand lectures, the serious delivery of
his nonsensicalitics being, at times, so ir
resistably laughable that ho soon became
popular with the laughter-loving public.
H. is & man of pure life and is a moral
teacher in his way. He loves his home,
and finds his chief delight and proudest
moments when with his little grandchil
dren. In his daily walk he shows none of
that eccentricity which many attribute to
him, but is, on the contrary, one of the
most natural of men. His longhair is not
a literary affectation, but is so worn to hide
a physical defect. Underneath the bad
spelling of his proverbs and aphorisms
there is, at times, a depth of wisdom and
philosophy which gives him a higher place
in the world than that of a mere humor
ist, and which is often overlooked by those
who are amused merely by his peculiarities
oi" expression. — [Argosy.
The Religious Question in France.
This influence is particularly exercised
over the middle classes of the nation, the
bourgeoisie, tin.' majority of whom, to use
the usual phrase, have become " clerical."
The people, on the contrary — that is to say.
the workingmen and peasants have not
allowed any increase of the authority of
the church over them, but daily escape
further from it. From the bourgeoisie,
however, the huge crowd of public func
tionaries is recruited, while, on the other
hand, it is the people who, by means of
universal suffrage, nominate the members
of Parliament, make the laws, and raise up
or cast down our Governments. Hence
there has arisen between the political direc
tion of the country and the executive, be
tween the law and those who are charged
to apply it, interpret it, and make it re
spectable, a strange antagonism, which is
not one of the least dangers inflicted upon
our country in late years by the church..
She has opposed the progress, not only of
liberty of thought that is within her
role— but also of popular education, of
which she seems to fear the consequences
above everything. She has become aristo
cratic and royalist, identifying her cause
with that of the ancien regime, and consid
ering the Prince who has just died at
Prohsdorff as the Bole legitimate authority.
She has again and again threatened the
existence of the republic, and has taken
part in the lions against all candidates
who represent liberal and democratic Ideas.
The charges of her Bishops and the ser
mons of her cures have too often been
filled with protestations against the state
of— society that baa sprung from the
French revolution, with attacks upon the
Government which -Trance has freely
chosen, and with insults against the repre
sentatives of the country. And, moreover,
in aid of its bellicose propensities, the
church employs hot only the powerful in
fluence which it wields over the souls of its
believers, but also that which the civil
power has given, either by the Concordat
or subsequent laws, or by its weakness and
concessions in practice.— [Paul Pert, in the
Fortnightly Review.
Opposed to H. — What is the aspirate ;
is it a consonant ; is it a vowel ; is it a let
ter at all properly so called? I maintain
that it is not, the letter 11 when used sim
ply to express the aspirate has no inde
pendent existence as a iter or vocal repre
sentative, that the phonetic difference
between air and hair, between Arry and
Harry, is merely due to a difference in the
amount of force with which the vowel
sound is projected from the mouth, and
therefore the aspirate, or rather the degree
of aspiration of the ; nitial vowel, should be
graduated according to force of expression
demanded; that genteel people 'are all
wrong and vulgar people generally are
rationally and classically right. "When I
say classically I refer to the original basis of
the English language. I could show by the
history of English orthography that the
prefixing of the letter H is purely arbitrary,
as indicated by the survival of such spell
ing as that of hour, herb, honor, etc., and
that the existing vulgar practice of aspir
ating every vowel which requires a "hem
phasis" was the original practice, while
the modern usage is a feeble perversion of
energetic English, and fit for nothing
stronger than drawing-room vapidities —
