Events in the Life of a Naval Com
f-aee and Necessity Demand that tho
Captain of a Warship Hold Aloof
From Subordinates.
When a British Admiral and a mid
shiptniteof i.J or thereabouts Hipped a
coin to see who should take an odd place
in a game of tennis at Norfolk, United
States naval officers look on with some
astonishment. Wheu another British
cnidshipmite plucked the sleeve of his
Captain in this city and said: "We're
going to sep the town; don't you want to i
go along? Nobody will know you," anil
the Captain declined, good-naturedly, i
uiidiug to a bystander, "D'ye hear the 1
youngster?"' American naval officers
wondered how soon a naval cadet would
attempt such familiarity with the com
iisniiderofa United States man-of-war.
If the Lieutenant is the type of tho line
ollicer, the Captain may be esteemed a
type of himself. The Lieutenant is essen
tially and necessarily gregarious. He
must live at dose quarters with other men
of varying ranks above ana below him,
and must accept the discipline that such
life implies If hu is to continue in the
navy with any decree of comfort to him
self. Jt is regarded by the .Now York |
Hun as a fortunate thing that the Captaiu,
as Lieutenant and blnsign, must have en
countered this discipline, else the life thai
naval regulations impose upon him must
develop the Captain into a peculiarly un
pleasaot person.
As soon as a United states naval ollicer !
steps from ihe wardroom to me cabiu a
■whole sel of habits, ihe growth of thirty
years in tue service, drop from him as a

above his leilows, and ostentatiously sur

the- autocratic theory. Every Capiam I
now and then accept* an invitation to \
dine in the wardroom. His place then is
at ihe right of ihe executive ollicer, who |
silt) at the. head Ol the table. This invita
ti n is always given when a new Captain I
comes aboard the ship, and it is repeated
from lime to tune during the cruise, ihe I
Captain unben Is on suca occasions, and
the wardroom does not greatly alter its |
routine, .\lO.-i 1 aptalns, from tune to j
time. Invite one subordinate or another to
B meal 111 Iho cabin. If the meal is lunch
eon, iho othcer comes in ihe dress of the
day, which has been pi escribed to all on
b>>ard by the I aptain early in the morn
ing. If the meai be dinner, the guest or- |
dinarily presents himself in full dress
mulurni. With some Captains these iu
vitations are frequent, but wiih many |
they are comparatively rare. A naval
. who has seen nearly ten years of
ties service, says that ho lias not taken
three ineala in the cabin during that
■whole period, and he has served uudor at
least half a dozen commanding officers.
S.iinc Captains now aud then go ashore ;
With subalterns, but lias is a rare case of

titled to two boys. The Captain's gig is
usually manned by enough BaUormen to
insure speed and confer dignity. At ordi
nary tiim's no commissioned ollicer ac- '
companies the boat's crew and the Cap
tain always acts ks his own steersman.
'J here is a vast amount of whistling as

that Captains too commonly take their
responsibilities with something of nerv
ous dread because they reach command
when past their prime and alter passing
their best years as subordinates. The
youngest of the forty-five Captains, the
ink on his new commission scarcely dry, I
cannot bo many months shorr. of fifty.
The oldest was acting midshipman forty
three yeara ago. Even the commanders
who were Captains by courtesy when in
command oi ships are from 40 to 50 years
of age.
Tun years of command hardens most
men into a dictatorial attitudo that is uot
altogether abandoned even ashore and iv
lomestic life. When Captain and Ensign
meet ashore and in civilian's dress, the
guests of a civilian, they are both merely
gentlemen, but the thoughtful civilian
would bo careful to ascertain the Cap
tain's feeling upon the subject of meeting
the Ensign before inviting them together.
It would be a caddish captain and a snob
bish Eusigu who should, on finding them
selves by accident gueßts at the same
table, permit anything iv their conduct
to betray the consciousness of adiffer
; enoe in rank. A few of the genuine old
sea dogs with the rank of Captain or Co m
| niodore, still retain the early nautical be
lief that it Decomes the commanding ofti
-1 cor to damn the eyes or any other ollend-
I ing feature oi' persons about them, and 1
the habit asserts itself sometimes ashore I
even in the domestic circle. These are
the men who recall a time when a Cap
tain may inflict the pen.illy ol di-aih upon
a mutineer, a power that disappeared
after a mutinous son of a cabinet ollicer
swung one morning from the yard arm
of au American man-of-war.
How to Put Up tho Different Vari
Cucumbers are usually the first pickles
I put up in summer. So couimou is the '
cucumber pickle that to most people a 1
pickle is aLu ays one of cucumbers. Old- |
tashioned people wore accustomed to I
take the larjje and small cucumbers of j
luu time indiscriminately lor pickling, !
but this is no longer done by good house
j keepers. Ouly the tiuy tfroeti cucum
bers, which are about two or two and a
halt' inches locs, are now considered de
sirable lor this purpose. Ttie best
gardeners raise special varieties of cucum
j i>ers, which are small in growth and com
pact, and make linn, crisp picklea. The
I most desirable salmi varieties are not
usually good lor pickling. The West
India gherkin or burr cucumber is also
I raised for our markets. This is a tiny
oval cucumber, rough and full ol spines.
It makes a very good pickle "for vari
ety's sake," but it does not take the place
in auy way of the small cucumber.
When the housewife lives in the country
and can gather the encumbers from her
own vines it is easier and better to put
them down in salt from time to time as
they ripen on tho vines.
Twenty-live or thirty may be freshened
; any timo throughout tho fall and winter
j and put in piciih;. When the housewife
j lives in the city and must, purchase her
supplies from tho market, it is better for
her vi pot them in briue lor a short time
j and then pickle the entire quantity sit
once. Tho lirst process, by which the
cucumbers are packed in salt, is very
simple. Have on hand a quantity of the
■ b> at Liverpool salt, and each morning,
alter gathering the cucumbers pack them
in layers in a stout wooden keg kept lor
the purpose. Put a layer of salt at least
half an inch th.ck in the bottom of tho
' keg, and then a layer of the cucumbers.
, Hut a layer o: salt about a quarter of an
inch thick over these, and when twenty
! live or thirty encumbers have been
packed in this way add a large cup of
! water. This water will dissolve the salt
j and make briue enough to cover the j
• •uciimbors. Lay a stout board and stone
1 over the cucumbers to kee;> them under
I the brine. Pick the cucumbers each
; morning before tue dew is off them, and
I 1 uL them in a keg with salt aud add water
when necessary.
When the keg is tilled cover it up close
j and keep it in a cold cellar until winter,
! wiien the pinkies are wanted. He careful
that they are kept continually under tho
brine by weighting them down with a
'•curd and stone. When the pickies are
wanted, lako out as many as you need 1
and soak them for three days in cold
water, changing the water each day. At
the end of this lime put them iv a uorce
lain kettle aim cover" them with vinegar.
Add to every two quarts of vinegar a tea
apoouful ol mustard sesd, half a dozen
small red peppers, a teaspoonful of black
pepper, a teaspoouful of mace and half a.
cup of sugar. Let tho mixture boil up |
lot two or three minutes, and the pickles I
are done and ready for use when they are
I cold, or you may simply scald the vine
gar with tno spices aud sugar and throw
it, boiling hot over tho cucumbers, with
out cooking them at all. A piece of alum |
the si/.e of a pea dissolved iv the vinegar
maiies the pickles crisp, but they are not
quite as w holesomu for this addition, and 1
11 is not necessary if tirni cucumbers are
used. Where cucumbers are purchased
by the quantity in market and put up iv ,
vinegar they must be soaked in brine ■
; three days. Some housekeepers soak ,
them only twenty-lour hours, but this is 1
hardly sufficient to draw out the strong, I
rank juices which exist in all crude fruits '
and make it necessary to soak them in
j brine to render them palatable euough .
for use.
In tiie case of cabbage, green tomatoes, :
and many other vegetables used for <
pickles, a press is used to draw out these 1
rank juices, but this is not necessary iv '
i the case of cucumbers if the brine is made '
strong enough to bear up a potato. It ■
will require about oue pound of .salt to a ,
galmn ol cold water. Let tho pickies ,
Hand in the brine lor three days. Some '•
i housekeepers heat the brine and throw it '
scalding hot over the pickles, and this '
i tends to soften them and is of no special j
advantage, as the raiikness is fully taken
out by a strong cold Drine. Alter the :
pickles have soaked in the brine for three '
days, wa-h them and test thorn by tasting
th. 111, and if they seem too salt freshen '
j them in cold water for one or two honra. in '
I auy event, wa>h the pickles very thor- !
oughly in clear water *<> remove all traces
I of brine, Prepare a spiced vinegar by add
ing to two quarts of vinegar a teaspoonful
ol whole mustard seed, a teaspoouful of
i wi.ole black peppers, a teaspoonful of I'
inaee and half a dozen small red peppers.
The red peppers used iv cucumber i
pickles are small capsicums, which may
be purchased at any drug store. An
1 ounce of ginger-root is sometimes added j
;to this Spiced vinegar. Boil all the spices j
in tho \ niegar for at least ten minutes, let j
the vinegar boil up once and put them I
away. 1 Imy are ready for use in two or i
three days, but they are better in a month. |

Steady Buying on the Part of Wheat
Shippers at the Bay,
r ■ -.'
Tho Barley Market Not' in a Satisfac
tory Condition — Oat j Market
Weak and Spiritless.
San Fuan-cisco. Air,'. 13th.
There is steady buying on the part of Wheat
shippers, though their operations are not
characterized ny any particular haste. Grow
ers are largely inclined to meet the situation,
in spite of the low prices, and offerings are
somewhat liberal in consequence. The Barley
market is not in satisfactory condition for the
selling interest. Feed descriptions are In large
supply, while the demand is anything but
active, and prices, therefore, rule easy. For
brewing qualities there is continued fair de
mand, but prices are not so steady as they
were a short time ago, owing to firmer ocean
freight rates. Both Oregon and Washington
have begun to ship Oats in this direction.
Consignments, so far, have not amounted to
much, even In the aggregate, but stocks on
Hand are quite large enough to meet all wants
for a time, and outside accessions do not help
matters for holders. Market weak and spirit
The demand for vegetables Is slow and few
changes are made in prices. Potatoes are
plentiful and the demand is active, Onions
are weaker again under liberal receipts.
In fresh fruits Peaches are over-plentiful
and weak at quotations. Melons are also
lower. Grapes begin to arrive more freely,
but the demand is still slack. Berries are
coming in lighter. Elsewhere there are no
changes to report. <
The Butter market Is very firm for fancy
creamery. Lower grades are unchanged, F^ggs
are firm for fancy stock. Cheese Is in mod
erate demand.
The Poultry market is very quiet. Prices
are steady and the demand is dull. Receipts
are light.

The Earliest Fruit Land in the State
Equal io All Respects io the Famous Yaca Valley, Which It Adjoins,
Capay Valley is situated in "Yolo County, about 90 miles by rail from San Francisco,
and is traversed in its entire length by the Woodland, Capay and Clear
Lake Railroad, the distance from Esparto to Rumsey beiny 21 miles.
The Capay Valley Land Company is offering the j
most fertile lands in this beautiful valley upon terms which <
enable the purchaser to pay for the land out of its own .
product, viz: Interest only for five years at 7 per cent. ;
The only condition imposed is, that a reasonable pro- 1
portion of the land purchased shall be planted to fruit 1
trees or vines. Land may be bought without this i
condition on payment of 20 per cent, cash and re- j
maining 80 per cent, at the end of five years, with in
terest annually in advance, at 7 per cent. The various •
tracts owned by the Capay Valley Land Company have 1
been subdivided into 10 and 20-acre lots, which are for
sale at prices varying from $50 to $150 per acre. Simi- i
lar unimproved land in Vaca Valley has recently been
sold at $400 to $500 per acre. ;
These Capay Valley lands are under the most favor
able climatic conditions for the prosecution of profitable :
fruit growing, and the locality ha,s proved itself to be
one of the earliest in the Slate. The y:rape crop of 1890
from the company's vineyard at Cashmere was picked,
dried and shipped to Chicago and Philadelphia before
the Fresno County grapes were ripe.
The railroad passes through all of the tracts owned by
the Capay Valley Land Company, thus insuring excel
lent shipping facilities; and land may now be purchased
in the immediate proximity of either of the following
stations: Capay, Cadenasso, Surrey, Guinda, Sauterne,
Cashmere or Rumsey.
At many of these places fine orchards of the choicest
and earliest varieties of peaches and apricots may already
be seen, and during the coming season considerable ad
ditional acreage will be planted out. One of the recent
sales made by the company was that of the Tancred
Tract, containing 600 acres, to a colony association.
This tract has been subdivided into forty holdings, all of
which will be planted to fruit trees this season.
The fine orchards on the Guinda Tract, where 400
acres have been sold, are especially worthy of menti*
and it is a significant fact that several of the blocks are
owned by successful Vaca Valley fruit-growers, who ex
pect to make their earliest shipments from here.

Too much stress cannot be laid upon the great ad
vantage to the fruit-grower of being in early locality.
In most cases it makes the difference between success
r»nd failure. The industrious orchardist of Capay Valley
may rest assured that he will derive all the benefits gained
by the first fruit shipments of the season, and that 2c
acres of this rich land, when the trees are in bearing, will
yield a handsome and assured income.
The Capay Valley Land Company has an agent re
siding in the valley, whose duty it is to show the various
tracts to land seekers.
Four townsites have been laid out in different points
in the vailey, viz: Esparto, Cadenasso, Guinda and
Rumsey. Town lots may now be purchased at reason
able prices and on easy terms.
The enterprising and flourishing town of Esparto is
situated at the lower end of the valley, and $125,000
worth of substantial buildings have already been erected,
including a fine four-story brick hotel, two large brick
blocks and waterworks, with pipes laid in the streets,
besides extensive warehouses and numerous residences.
The town has a postoffice. school-house and a weekly
paper, and the fine railroad depot contains telegraph
and express offices.
Postoffices have also been established at Guinda and
Rumsey. This latter place, situated at the head of the
valley, is the present terminus of the railroad. The com
fortable little hotel makes excellent quarters for hunters
as well as land-seekers.
The advantages enjoyed by the settler in Capay Val
ley may be thus concisely summed up:
A soil of great fertility, yielding bountifully of every
A soil and climate which will ripen all kinds of fruit and
vegetables earlier than anywhere else in the State.
A climate perfectly adapted to the curing of raisins and
