California. .The results of his arduous
labors have been compiled in a book,
entitled ;The"Sllva: of California." 1 .
• Professor Jepson a part of

tions and -even race».'-
\u0084 The volume : prints r for, the first time
the' age tables of the Sequoia^ gigantea,
which^are computed to be from 400, to
1,500 years old. The extreme age is
given as "from 2,300 to -2,400 -years,
while the) extreme age of ' the valley
oak; or. the ; weeping. oak is said to, be
from 150; t0, 325 years, and that of the
coast oak; from 95 to 150 .f0r-- possibly
