"The next morning about 9 o'clock the
body was found floating and no trace of
any wound could be found, while the
only abnormal appearance was the swol
len state of the nostrils. On examination
it was found that the brains had . been
extracted. The natives of the Uelle all
dread the 'megwe.' while those of the
Itimbri know nothing of its existence."

this kind," says the Belgian. "A canoe

survivors swam ashore they told us that
an octopus had turned their boat over

his cavern and there, without inflicting
the slightest external wounds, feeds on
his victim's brains by inserting the points
of his tentacles in his nostrils. He gen

The strange beasts are called "megwe"
by the natives, and are very numerous

The scalp is that of an Apache chieftain,
whose name was Juan Dazen, and who
was at the liead of a band of redskins on
Canyon Creek, adjoining Crescent Valley.
This band of Indians had been making
raids upon the cattle ranches and in the
fall of 1884 a party of thirty men. com
posed of the Tewksbury ' brothers, the
Meadows brothers and a number of cow
punchers, ambushed the Indians and
killed sixty of them. Meadows took the
scalp of the chief and has retained It over
since. He calls it his receipt for a "good"
Apache. Of course he does not expect the
President to accept, but he desires to call
attention to his expedition, and for that
reason sent the invitation. , ¦
Several days ago • some one suggested
to Meadows that he invite the President
to join the expedition and suggested that
some unusual invitation be sent. To-day
Meadows decided to send the invitation
on an Apache, scalp, several of which he
has had for years. The "invitation" was
at once prepared and to-night it was for
warded by express.
They expect to be opposed by the In
dians, who have successfully stood off
similar expeditions of Mexicans and
others for many years. The party does
not expect to find cities in the interior
subject to loot, but it will look for min
eral riches. The island is the property of
General Andrade', Mexican Consul in Los
Angeles, and through him the assistance
of General Torres, commanding the Mex
ican forces in the . State of Sonora, has
been secured. Unless the party is driven
off, this assistance will not be called upon.
"Arizona Charlie" is preparing to head
an expedition into Tiburon Island, that
mysterious land off the coast of Mex
ico, in the Gulf of Lower California, into
the interior of which it is said ndwhlte
man has ever penetrated. With a band
of forty or more adventurers who havo
had experience upon the cattle ranges of
Arizona, Meadows will leave' Los An
geles about October 1 for Guaymas, and,
procuring a small sloop there, will pro
ceed to the island and make a landing
on the westerly side.
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6.— Presidents of
the United States have received invita
tions of many kinds. Some of them have
teen inscribed upon , tablets of gold,
studded with precious stones. Others
have been upon wood or stone or parch
ment, but the most grewsome bid for the
presence of the Chief Executive that was
ever sent was .that forwarded to Wash
ington to-night by Charles Meadows, bet
ter known as "Arizona Charlie." It con
sisted of the scalp of an Apache Indian,
the text of the invitation being Inscribed
upon a small 'metal shield which was riv
eted to the scalp.

The members of the Rer-Haired Club
point to the fact that some of the great
personages of history have been of their
sort. There was David, who was known
as the "ruddy youth"; St. Paul was red
haired, Mary Queen of Scots had a crown
of red gold hair, and Julius Caesar and
Martin Luther are recorded in history
as having been red-haired.
There Is but one requirement for ad
mission. Any one who has red hair can
read his title clear to membership. It
is alleged that a constitution has been
drawn up, and that in it the president is
lacetiousiy dubbed the "most lurid lum
inary." So much mystery surrounds the
new organization that no one has yet
been able to positively find out the offi
cers. It is strongly suspected, however,
that a young medical man of the capital
in the chief executive. At least his shock
ot bright red hair and his luxurious flam
tSff beard would seem to qualify him for
the- office. "Satellites" and "lesser lights"
are the terms by which subordinate offi
cers and members are known.
A Red-Haired Club is the latest addi
tion to Washington's social circles.
The unique organization is a society of
protest formed in rebellion against the
witticisms which from time immemorial
tave been directed against auburn-hued

HS general committee of the
Native Sons of the Golden West
¦ held Its last meeting last night In
j^ Native Sons' Hall to conclude ar
rangements for the celebration on
Admission day. O: L.. Blackman presided.
After the several sub-committees had
presented their reports. Secretary Wynn
read a letter from Grand Marshal Jul
liard, who in this announced that he had
selected Linehan of California Parlor,
Webber of Alcatraz Parlor and J. M.
Hanley of Precita Parlor as aids to the
grand marshal; Kroger of National Par
lor, G. Stutt of San Francisco Parlor and
J. King as division aids, and W. W. Shan
non, Percy L. Badt, H. I. Mulcrevy and
S. V. Costello as division marshals.
It was announced that Bay City Parlor

Rincon Parlor will have a drum corps to
precede It in the two parades and will turn
out about 100 members. The parlor will
entertain in the celebration city.
Arrangements were made for the trans
portation of about 225 musicians, which
includes drum and bugle corps.
'The fireworks committee reported hav
ing secured an extra amount of fireworks
to use during the march in this city.
Through rubber tubes pass wires which
control the action of the cameras and
lights. Thus the operator, when he
wishes to take a picture is able to turn
on the light and at the same time to ex
pose the plates; all that is needed being a
touch upon a button. An automatic ar
rangement turns the exposed plate out of
the way and places another in position
for exposure. Owing to the relative posi
tions of the cameras they take pictures of
the object from two different points of
view, almost at right angles.
At very great depths — such as a mile — a
machine of this kind would not be avail
able, as it would be crushed by the pres
sure of the water. But this is not a mat
ter of much Importance, as the apparatus
is designed for use in connection with
diving operations, which are not con
ducted very fa.r below the surface.
The problem of submarine photography
has been taken- up by a Massachusetts
Inventor, who has patented an apparatus
combining' a pair or cameras witn means
for the artificial illumination of objects in
the depths.
It has been ascertained by careful ex
periments (such as the exposure of sensi
tive plates at various depths) that, prac
tically, not a ray of sunlight penetrates
farther down than 600 feet below the sur
face of the sea. Even in comparatively
shallow water nhotograpny is out of the
Question from jack of light. But here is
a machine that carries a light of its own,
and which, by tne use of very ingenious
means, so it is claimed, is able to illumi
nate quite powerfully any object that is
to be taken.
The two cameras, each of them inclosed
in a large bulb of metal with a glass
bullseye, are held by rigid arms on either
side of a chamber containing strong arc
larnps. Thev are so arranged as to point
somewhat inward, and to be focused upon
the same object, which is at the same
time illuminated by the powerful ray
thro wn forward from the electric cham

Mrs. Crane is arranging to drive the
tuiinel at once. Since the news of her
find leaked out there has been a rush
from Skagway to stake other claims
along Burro Creek.
Mrs. Crane declares her strike is a rich
cne and that she will cle;*n up a fortunte.
She has refused to sell an interest. Water
seepage has caused a stoppage of work
¦until a tunnel for drainage purposes can
be driven. This will cause some delay,
but in the long run will prove less costly
than going to the expense of establishing
a pump and hoist.
TACOMA, Sept. 6.— Rubies and free gold
have been found in the Ward shaft on
Burro Creek, near Skagway. A stam
pede has been started toward these dig
gings, which were worked as placers sev
eral years ago. The discovery was made
by Mrs. S. Crane, who has been prose
cuting work there for some time, employ
ing three miners. She began work where
Ward left off and sank a shaft sixty feet
farther. At this depth the miners en
countered small rubies and quartz, which
runs high in free gold.

Miss Floyd is a capable young woman,
with business qualifications above the
average, and she has for several years
been observing with growing discontent
the manner in which the trust property
has been managed. The decision in the
Fair case was hailed with delight as dis
closing a possible avenue of escape from
this tying-up of her patrimony.
The real estate involved in the suit in
cludes Kono Tayee, the handsome Floyd
home on Clear Lake; Quercus ranch, con
sisting of 471 acres on Clear Lake of the
choicest of Big Valley land; some pieces
of land in San Francisco, including the
North Point dock warehouse and the
Montgomery Baths; 3760 acres in Merced
County, and valuable property in Ala
meda, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and
Santa Clara counties.
The Superior Court of Lake County, by
its decree dated April 29, 1S93, distributed
the estate, valued at $700,000, to the three
trustees, James T. Boyd, Adolphus D.
Grimwood and William T. Welker. On
Mr. Welker's death the remaining trus
tees selected Mrs. Cora S. Keeler to fill
the vacancy. ' '
In her complaint Miss Floyd alleges
ownership of all of her mother's property
as sole heir and seeks to have her title
quieted as against the trust. It is under-,
stood that she relies in her attack on the
trust on the decision of the Supreme Court
of California in the Fair will case.
The Floyd trust was created by the
will of the late Cora L. Floyd, widow of
Captain Richard S. Floyd, who was sec
retary of the Lick trust. By its terms her
daughter, MJss Harry A. L. Floyd, was
to receive two-thirds of the net income of
the trust property, the remaining one
