of Seldom Soon, brought a load of
apples to town Saturday, and they
left the Recorder man fcelinj
mighty good; not only because of a "
basketful of fine fruit, but also be- ''
cause it is pleasant to be remem- lo
herod by those who possess the good..l!'
things of life. This fruit, by-the- U1
way, was well-preserved, smoothej c
and perfectly matured.
These gentlemen also report a
fine output of sugar for a dato so
early in the season: Two hundred
pounds, and several gallons of syr?

The fact that the mail routes go?
ing out from Monterey have been
re-advertised, is taken as evidence
that the Government regards thc
bids as excessive. We understand
that both Messrs. Cross and Hiner
?vere bidders for the routes of which
they now have charge, and patrons I \\
generally would be glad to hear of i
them getting the contracts for the jy
coming four years. Both have .,
'given good service. We are in- j
'formed that, while Mr. Cress' bid
was in excess of former years, he
(had in mind the purpose and itn -
[portance of re-stocking and re?
equipping the route. The cutting
out of liquor-hauling, while gener?
ally approved, doubtless has some
bearing, too, on the question of fu?
ture service, |f(

Mr. John Trimble who left herc
about the last of January to join
his daughter and others in Rich?
mond and go on to Florida seemed
to have providentially changed his
plans, for instead of going on to
their destination, Mr. Trimble be?
ing tired, they decided to stop ov?
er in Jacksonville for a night.
When the train they would have
been on was about twenty miles
beyond Jacksonsville it was in a
fearful wreck. The engine, tender
and baggage car eseaped, but the
coach and sleepers were all thrown
off the track and badly broken up.
and about half of the passengers
hurt, though only one was killed.
