AT THE UNDERTAKER
The Club Changes Its Quar
ters for Good Reasons.
Sir John Buck Tells What Hap
pened at Yuma.
The "Stiff Planter" Takes a Hand
at Yarning,
And Tells What a Bad 'TJn His Assistant
Bill Was—But Bill Gets Fooled—A
Practical Joke on a Reporter.
Written for the Herald.
In accordance with the wishes of the
majority of the club it was agreed that
the '"boys" should no longer hold their
meetings in the back room of a saloon,
but should gather in the parlor of the
undertaker, to swap reminiscences. As
one of the vice-presidents explained, a
wave of temperance had swept over tbe
city, whose influence was felt by all
classes—especially by reporters—the
reason for which he assigned to the fact
that the elections were over and the
candidates wouldn't allow their "leg to
be pulled" any longer. The under
takers' parlor was suggested as a sub
stitute to the saloon parlor, because it
was so easy to lay out a man there after
he had been talked to death. Besides,
undertakers, he added, could tell beau
tiful stories themselves, without any
great effort, and, if he loved anything, it
was a plausible and imperturbable liar.
The motion prevailed, and when the
club repaired to the friend of
the deads' joint and explained
the high honor done him, he
expressed himself as immensely pleased,
and set them up, on condition that the
boys wouldn't spit on the floor.
It occurs to me here to ask why un
dertakers are always such jolly dogs ?
The sourest of them could make a cat
laugh. I have come to the conclusion
that there must be a great deal of satis
faction and comfort in laying out a
"stiff," and nailing him up in a box.
"Whenever I get the blues again I am
agoing to be a jolly undertaker and
never have dyspepsia again.
A gentleman wearing a pair of sol
dier's pants, a deacon's broadcloth coat,
very much browned by the caresses of
the sun, and a straw hat that had come
all the way from Guadalajara, was intro
duced as a shining light of the pencil,
who was momentarily in an embarrassed
condition, being, as he said, a new ar
rival in the city of the angels, in which
he had set foot for the first time the day
before, en route to the -andwich
Islands, where he expected to make a
fortune and obtain a title.
"Now," said he, "I am plain Johnny
Buck, but what will my old granny say,
if she lives that long, and sees me com
ing home with my pockets stuffed full of
twenties, and addressed as Sir John
Buck, the same as old Claus Spreck
els? I have perfected a system
by which one must always win
at poker, and if I can " get in
with His Royal Majesty King Kalakaua,
I'll teach him the science, become rich
and considered, and will avert a revolu
tion in those enchanting islands, where
all you have to do to be happy is to eat
banana?, while the pretty girls fan you
with a palm leaf!" He drew in his
breath at the joyful thought, exactly as
a Japanese does when he wishes to show
you a mark of respect.
He explained that he deserved the
smiles of fortune, because she had kicked
him barf* until the present time.
"While 1 was at Yuma," he continued,
Where were some embarking in a
river boat. Every man of 'em waB as
full as a gander. I was standing Heftl*
the gangway, and up walks a little fat
major, whose face was as red as a boiled
lobster. I didn't have this sanctimon
ious coat on then. This was presented
to me bv the warden of the penitentiary
&s a mark of esteem. I had on a eoldier's
fatigue jacket. The little major says to
■me: 'Pwivate, you will stand at this
gangway and pwevent evewybotiy
trom leaving the boat. Djunderstand
me, sah ? ' Then he walked off without
even waiting for an answer. I had noth
ing particular to do. so I concluded I
might as well stay there and assert my
authority. After I had been waiting
three minutes a drunken soldier, who
was loaded with traps of all kinds, stag
gered down the gang plank. He had his
musket in hiB hand. I drew myself up
just as I had seen the major do it, and
said: 'You can't go ashore,
sir.' 'Phwafts that?' queried
the warrior, 'an' is it yez,
ye dirty nigger-graiser, phwat '11 stap
me? Be the holy phoker, af yez don't
git out of me waay, I'll be after braik
ing ivery bone in yer dirrty ould body!'
'Orders"of the major,' says I. 'To h
with you an' the meejor," says he,
'Oi'in not drunk, and oi'U be drunk
afore I lave, or me name is not Patrick
O'Connell Gilhooley ; so get out of me
waay, or be this and be that, I'll shoot
the top of yer head aff.' Of course I let
him go where he pleased, and he went
straight to a saloon. The little major
had seen my weakness. He rushed up
in a big rage, and I thought he would
have a fit. When he regained his
breath he addressed me tliusly : 'Pwi
vate, demme sah, you disobeyed owdahs,
sah! I told you distinctly not to let any
of these wascals disembark, sah. I
shall report you to your commanding
officer, sah. Consider yourself under
arrest!'
I had got tired by this time of choleric
officers and drunken privates, and
felt very much like telling
him to go where Patrick want
ad him to go, but a major, though
he mav be a small man, is a big man,
and I thought it best to be polite, so I
addressed myself to him in about these
words: 'Honorable major of the regular
army of the United States, you are labor
ing under a mistake. I have no superior
officer in this whole wide world. As
you see me, I am a combination of
superior officer and private, and nobody
can boss me but myself. I was very
willing to oblige you, so long as no per
sonal violence was threatened me, but
when a drunken Irishman, who wishes
you in hell, talks about knocking the
'tap of me head aff,' I know that he
would do it too quick.'
" 'Then, sah, if you are no soldier, sah,
who in thundah has allowed you to wear
soldiers' clothes, sah?'
'Adversity, most honorable major,
adversity. Besides, you are a little off
your cabeza, or in other words your nose
is out of joint, if you can't distinguish
between the clothes of regulars and those
of the national guard of the great com
monwealth of California. I shall
haye to decline to remain any
longer on the missien of trust
which you confided to me, and if,
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 10, 1890
in view of the time I have lost here, you
would loan me a quarter until next pay
day, I shall repair forthwith to the Chi
nese restaurant I see at no great dis
tance and satisfy the cravings of a stom
ach as empty as my purse.'
The major laughed very good natur
edly and loaned me a half until "next
pay day."
"He was a fine little man, and I hape
yet to see him a general when I am Sir
John Buck."
A collection was taken up for the fu
ture grandee of the Sandwich islands,
whicb footed up $3.23 and three coat
buttons. Somebody accused the under
taker's assistant of having taken a quar
ter out of the hat while he put in a
nickel, but the matter was compromised
by the boss hunting up a pair of pants
that had belonged to a late lamented
party. They fitted Sir John finely, and
he discarded his military breeches. He
then sang "Grandfather's Clock," to
prove his gratitude, and left to take a
bath, which be said he was in the habit
of taking twice a year, whether he
needed it or not.
The undertaker who had been work
ing the growler a couple of times, now
felt that he had a right to the floor for
a while.
"Boys," says he, "undertakers, as a
class, is the most honestest people un
der the sun. I cal'late that a black
sheep is the most rarest thing you ever
did saw in that perfeshing of ourn. But
when you meet a bad 'un, he is a bad
'un. I had a man here onct, no better
one for all the technique of the busi
ness—shavin', embalmin', dressin',
layin' out, sittin on the hearse and
lookin' mournful like; you'd a' thought
it was his own mother he was ago in' to
plant. First class mug for a funeral.
Nothin' to complain as far as business
was consarned, but if he could rob a
dead man he'd do it. By gosh, he would
that.
"Idisremember how long ago it was.
He had gone to pick up a eud
dint death near the daypo. Two
or three fellers was along of him.
When they reaches Cape Horn saloon
one on 'em says, says he, 'Bill, aint yer
goin' for to set 'em up?' Bill says as
how he didn't have no money, but, says
he, we'll stop the kerridge and if the
stiff has any stuff we'll booze. So Bill
coolly takes off the tarpaulin, feels all
through the diseased's pockets and
finds a half. They ties up the horses
and Bill sets 'em up. Yere is nerve for
you!
"Nuther time, he goes for a little ole
man, as had died in a cheap lodging
house with all his clothes on. Bill he
thinka that there feller is poor, has no
friends and, says he: 'Guesa this yere'll
be a county job.' Somehowerother the
ole feller had a friend. He comes in and
says: 'Give my old pard a ten dollar
shroud, fifteen dollar box, one kerridee,
and yere is $29 fer to pay the damage."
"Bill takes off the old gent's working
clothes, fixes him up beautiful in his
shroud, combs his hair and
makes him look like a gentle
man, which I cal'late he never
did in his lifetime. The old clothes is
thrown in a box in the yard, and Bill
never po much as looks through them to
find valuables. In course, nobody ex
pected to find anythin' but muck,
matches or tobacco in them clothes.
"A couple of days arter this, in walks
a little ole 'oman with a sunbonnet on
her head. 'Didn't you bury a man here
two days ago by the name of Jake Ma
ple?' says she. 'In course we did,'says
I. 'I'd like to have a look at them old
clothes of his'n; I am his widder.'
'Bill,' I tells my assistant, 'get them
clothes outen the yard for this yere oid
'oman.'
"Bill he growled, but he gets them all
the same. The ole 'oman picks up tbe
overalls, pulls out a pin that closed the
fob pocket, and outen that very pocket
comes $130 in greenbacks. I'd like
to hey died, lookin' at Bill's
face. The ols woman gives us
a kind good-bye, but that there Bill was
ondisposed for nior'n a week. Ah!
Ah! Ah!"
Everybody laughed so heartily at the
old man's yarn that the tin bucket made
another trip to the beer hall.
"VVe had a fine lark here sometime
ago," he continued ftftSl' everyone had
buried his nose in the bucket, "withone
of you fellef reporters. You all knows
him, and maybe aotue of you was called,
to the inkwidge we held on nttt. He
comes in here and sitt in a cheer. He
was what cher may call 'bilin'. Party
soon he goes to sleep. Me and Bill and
the other boys, we picks him up and
puts him in tho back room, on a
stretcher, and covers him with a white
cloth. We crossed his hands on his
breast, puts little rags over his eyes, as
natcbal as if he'd been dead. No
snorin', no nothin'. Then we telephoned
to all the nooßpapers to say as how we
had a reporter here as had died suddint
like. Oh! but they came aflockin' in
like crows at a barbecue, when there's
nothin' but bones left. We took
the boys into the back room and showed
them the beautiful corpse. Onfortun
ately +he durned cubs started in to
sneeze, and that gave the job away,
but "
At this moment one of the reporters,
who had shown signs of uneasiness
since the beginning of the last story, got
up with a disgusted look on his "face,
and whistling to his yellow dog. walked
out, muttering several words, the most
prominent of which was "Damn !"
81-METALLISM.
What Mr. Cernuschi Thinks of Free
Coinage in the United States.
Last year M. Cernuschi of Paris, the
distinguished and brilliant exponent of
bi-metallism, proposed the adoption of
a compromise monetary system, based
on the dual units, the gold dollar of the
United States, and the silver five-franc
piece of the Latin Union. He offered a
prize of 10,000 francs for the beßt ex
position of the system he proposed,
which was a very definite and practical
one. Thirty-nine essays from different
parts of the world were submitted to
the judges; and the prize was awarded
to Baron van Rochijssen, formerly a
minister of foreign affairs of the Nether
lands.
Among the competitors was our
townsman, H. D. Barrows, to whom M.
Cernuschihas written aletterin French,
of which the following is a translation :
7 Velasquez avenue, )
Park Monceau, [
Paris, Oct. 10, 1890. )
Sir : I was unacquainted with and do
nor know Mr. Rochussen, but I have
learned that he is a very distinguished
and very much respected" man. I believe
that he will publish his work, which I
will send you. Mr. Laveleye was also a
competitor. He writes me that he has
secured a publisher. I will also send
you his publication. It goes without
saying that you are at liberty to publish
your essay. ,
It is useless to expect anything from
the European states after the decision
whicb has been taken by the English
government to do nothing.
I believe that tbe United States will
end in decreasing the free coinage of sil
ver by maintaining the free coinage of
gold, and I believe that hereafter they
can do it without danger.
I found it very hard to obtain judge*.
Those whom I got did not meet together.
They corresponded by letter, and unfortu
nately they are unable to make a report
about the thirty-nine essays which have
been sent in competition."
Please accept, sir, the assurance of my
most sincere sentiments.
Your servant,
Henri Cernuschi.

Life in the Frozen North is the
title of a lecture by Miss Olof Kraver,
The Esquimaux Lady, for tho sixth
night. This little lady is not only a
lecturer, but a curiosity. She is a native
of Greenland, where she lived until her
fifteenth year, when she left home with
a party of shipwrecked sailors, and after
traveling a thousand miles over frozen
seas and giaciers, at last reached Iceland.
After a ten years' residence in Iceland,

Mushrooms Out of Place.
At a farm house in Newchurch in-
Pendle mushrooms grow in profusion in
the various rooms on the ground floor.
A gentleman visited the place one Sun
day, and he found mushrooms growing
out of the chinks of the floor and also
from the walls. He was allowed to take
several away, one of which was eight
inches across. The vicar of Newchurch
often has a dish from the farm house. It
is interesting, but melancholy, to im
agine the bodily condition of the dwell
ers in such a house, and also the mental
condition of a clergyman who can enjoy
a dainty originating in such a way.—
Gardeners' Chronicle.
When the Wheelbarrow Was Invented.
Now a writer in the French scientific
journal La Nature calls attention to an
old book printed in 1555, in which is a
curious wood engraving that represents
a single wheeled barrow pushed along
by a laborer. Another plate of the same
book shows a tramway car running upon
rails. This puts the use of the wheel
barrow back more than a hundred years
earlier than the time of Pascal.
A National Event.
The holding of the World's Fair in a city
scarcely fifty years old will be a remarkable
event, but whether it will really benefit thin na
tion as much as the discovery of the Restorative
Nervine by Dr. Franklin Miles is doubtful.
This is just what the American people need to
cure their excessive nervousness, dyspepsia,
headache, dizziness, sleeplessness, neuralgia,
nervous debility, dullness, confusion of mind,
etc. It acts like a charm Trial bottles and

Orange Lands For All!
THE SEMI-TROPIC LAND AND WATER CO. have about 20,000 acres left
of their original purchase of 29,000 acres of the best orange land in Southern
California.
We have always sold our lands for $200 per acre, until this fall. Now we have
reduced the prices and fixed our terms to bring the land within the reach of all.
We are arranging two irrigation districts under the "Wright Irrigation Act," and
are selling land in one of these districts at $75 per acre, with a rebate of $15 per
acre for improvements, to be put on the land by the purchaser the first year. This
leaves the net price at $00 PER ACRE, payable, $10 per acre cash, the balance in
3 equal payments, due in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent interest.
In the other district we sell the land for $100 per acre, with a rebate of $25 for
improvements put on the land by purchaser the first year, which leaves the net
price at $75 PER ACRE, payable $10 per acre cash, balance in 2, 3 and 4 years, at
8 per cent, interest.
Our lands lie four miles west of San Bernardino and Colton, on the Santa Fe
and Southern Pacific railroads,seven miles north of Riverside,and we are prepared
to establish the fact that in quality and location they are not excelled in this
country. Our elevation is 1300 feet above sea level, being about 400 feet higher
than Riverside, and almost entirely free from frost.
The home office of the company is at Rialto, one of our four railroad stations ;
and the officers are :
