In Malone, N. Y., after a three
months tour of England and the con.

The contractors are ready to begin
operations on the St. Johns river

Just waiting for Capt. Boyd to quit
fooling with the fever and go to driv-

A Philadelphian in a current
periodical advertises for "Florida
Pets" and enumerates "alligators,
snakes, turtles, etc." Perhaps he
would like some "blind mosquitoes,"
a manatee and a skunk or two for
the children to play with.

The average temperature in San
Mateo during July and August was
76.5 deg. ranging from 64 to 96 deg.
Climate has qualities not measured
by Fahrenheit and that same some-
thing, perhaps, makes our or-
anges the'best In the world-makes
our 96 deg. what 8) deg. would be in
New York State-no fancy either,
read the coroner's reports.


The Rev. John Leinley and wife
will occupy the Manse early in No-
vember. Mr. Lemley was for many
years editor and publisher of "Zion's
Watchman." Rev. Geo. E. Stock-
well will be down about the same
time and will live with them and
occugj..the Presbyterian pulpit until
his return North about February 1.
After that Mr. Lemley will supply
for balance of the winter. Mr. Lem-
ley and wife are very genial and
pleasant people and we know the
people of San Mateo will be pleased
to have them here for the winter.
All Sail Mateo was aqulver Satur-
day with the expectation of victory)
on the East End diamond. No one
was dead-sure which of three towns
we were going to beat, but since
none of them "showed us the way to
play ball" therd would seem to be no
kick coming on the subject. Capt.
Solana failed to send the score card
so there is no report of our fine play.
Someone was ordinary enough to
ask "what's the matter?" Lost-
On Saturday Aug.2Sth, between
Crescent City, Hastings and Palat-
ka a golden game of ball set with
nine brilliant Innings around a green
diamond. Finder return to Charlie
Solauna or Harry Bailey and receive
the gratitude of the inquisitive.

STATE RIFLETEAM HONE
RoMFinished n FortyFirtst Pace
With a Score of 3,246 Poit

Florida Team Improved Two Hadred
ad Fifty Pelat. Ovw its Last Scwe
oa a Nation l Match.


Jacksonville, Fla.-In the national
state match held on the Camp Perry,
Ohio, range, the Florida rifle team fin-
ished In forty-silxth place, there being
forty-eight teams participating In the
contest. The total score of the Flor-
ida boys was 3,246 points. In the
match of 1907, Florida finished In
twenty-first place, with a score of
2,996.
While the team Improved two hun-
dred and fifty points over its last
score in a national match, other
teams Improved at a greater ratio.
The Florida boys were somewhat un-
fortunate this year, In having three
members of the toam lose twenty
mhots on the skirmish run. This was
caused by primers getting into the
magazine of the rifle, with the result
.that the delicate mechanism became
Jammed, rendering the piece useless
until the cause was removed.
In this manner Colonel Cochran lost
four shots, Captain Yerpers eleven
and Sergeant Crenshaw five. This
way not the extent of the hard luck,
however, for in shooting from the
one thousand* yard range, Sergeant
Kelsey inadvertently placed his sights
at 1,150 yards, and missed the target
fave times In successiou.
Without these unfortunate mishap,
Florida would probably have had one
hundred additional points, which
would have placed the team well up
in the averages. Special gauged ri-
fles, as used by the leading teams.
would have helped the Florlda team
materially.
Secretary of War Dickerson was on
the range during the shooting of the
national match, firing the first shot
that opened the contest.

The department of commerce am

No account s taken In that repoe
of the enormous number of fish tha
are taken annually In sport, and c
the number of vessels that devot
their time, la the season for Aishin
for sport, in conveying sportsmen t
their favorite grounds of fishing.
Commercially, the Indultry ha
reached proportions nl Floaida tha
entitle it to rank among the chit

state.


There were engaged last-fear, iM
commercial fishing on the shores o
Florida, 9 212 men. Of these, 8,
were independent fishermen, whil
5,926 were wage earners, or em
ployes.
4 Ihree hundred and twenty-eevei
vessels, valued at $618,674. were em
played in the industry, while the in
vestment In capital, shore property
and apparatus was valued at $2,123,

The total value of the products for
the year were $3,388,690, which show
that taken as a whole, the Florida
fishing Industry was reasonably prof

The largest item of shipment way
the humble mullet, of which 24,716,
300 pounds were caught and sold foi
1652,030. Red snapper came next
with $434,060 paid for 7,718,00(
*ounds of catch.
Even catfish contributed $53,570 to
swell the total returns, 1,480,000
pounds being shipped.
There were obtained 1,066,800 bush
els of oysters, valued at $29,040; and
50,900, alligator hides, valued at $48.
230 *were sent out of the state.
These figures will gtve som idea of
the immense value the inzxhaustible

this is a comparatively young Indus

woman who carrkdl about her a faint,

NEVADA'S IRRIGATION PLAN


More Wealth Will Come From the
Soil Than From the Mines, It is
Planned.
Nevada has two main sources of
wealth-its soil and its mines-ar.4
the former will probably outstrip tAe
latter when fully developed by Irri-
gatim. The old Cometock mines are
practically dead unless good ore is
found below the present working
level, but in Tonopah and GoldfielJ
mines are now being put in working
shape which will pay good dividenis
for years. The new camps around
Tonopah and Goldfield have been hurt
by wildcat nmanipulators, but the
new district is too rich to be injured
permanently. The financial strin-
gency seriously hurt the develop-
ment of the mines, but this year
promises great progress.
The Truckee-Carson irrigation pro-
Ject, on which the Government will
spend $9,000,000, promise to do moie
for Nevada than its mines. The so3l
is very rich and when water s
brought upon it any crop may be
grown profitably. More than 200,000
acres are brought under irrigation by
canals from the Truckee River. F!'-
Ings are now being made on this
land. In addition to irrigation the
canals, which drop 1,000 feet from
the Truckee source, will furnish enor-
mous electric power. Reno is the
commercial centre of Nevada and
has more than doubled in population
in two years. The Southern Pacific
Railroad shops at Sparks employ 600
nwn all the time. The Western Pa-
c!fic Railroad crosses the Nevada and
the roadbed Is being rapidly built.


The Pope's Watch.
There 4s one 'humble relic with
which nothing will ever induce the
pope to part. This relic Is his watch
-a little cheap nickel watch. "It
marked the minute of my mother's
death strugglea" he says. "and tho
hour of 'my definite separiatlon from
the outer world, from space and lib.
erty. It has marked all the sad. all
the Joyous, all the solemn moments of
my Mfe. What jewel could be more
precious to me?" lie carries it fas-
tened to a 'white silk cord. In the
broad sash that he wears around h!s

fend against the etiquette that hith
erto had obliged the lope, when he

Origin of Oenoord Grope.
The development of the Concord

efforts of Uphralm Wales Bull, who
lived at Concord, Mass., with his fan-
Uy in the year 183688. Bull purchased
a seventeen-acre farm and decided
to settle on it. There was a native
vine, named vitts labrusca, growing
In one corner of his farm, which he
watched carefully. (He continued
planting seed each year from his
new vine until the original wild habit
was completely broken up, and from
the original took, as black as night,
grapes were obtained, delleste of tex.
tore and of the most agreeable flavor.
*During all these years Mr. Bull had
kept up his business of gold-beating In
a small shop near his cottage. In
the summer of 1863, having worked
up a large stock of vines, he placed
the 'whole In the hands of a firm
Which advertised it extensively. In

ield for their business. An aer0
moe amount of spurlous coin is In
circulation in that country. A re-
markable thing about these false
colas is that they are readily ac-
cepted in the ordinary channels of
trade. It is only when they get into
the banks or oecee of the federal
state governments that they are tak-
en up and retired from dcrculation.
The silver peso is the principal cojn
counterfeited, although the coins of
smaller denomination, particularly
the i-cent piece, are not below the
notice of the illicit metal workers.
There is no way of estimating the
amount of false coin In circulation,
but it must be very large, as is evi-
denced by the fact that one of every
ten coins of the peso denomination
In the ordinary transaction of busi-
ness usually is found to be spurious.
The average Mexican of the lower
class is an adept in filigree anl gen-
eral metal work. The coutnterfelting
outfits usually are crude affairs, ind
the coins which they turn out are
good fpecimeas, considering the rough
method of their manufacture. Few
of the counterfeiters take the trou-
ble to form an elaborate composition
for their goods. The majority o! 'hetn
are content with ordinary lend. In
many Instances the coins are cast
In brass and then plated with sil-
ver. The silver plated bra3s coins
are kept In circulation until the plat.-
ing wears off, when they ar? no long-
er accepted in the usual line of trade.
It is said that counterfeiters in
Mexico have little difficulty in plac-
ing their product in circulation. In
many Instances uncovered by the p)O-
lice and secret service men the co'in-
terfeiters sold their spurious output
to merchants and small dealers in
different cities and the coins ,were
passed out to customers in a system-
atic way so as not to attract tin'Ile
attention. The patrons of these sinal!
stores and market places are people
of the lower class for the most part,
and the rudest kind of counterfeit
coin is accepted by them without
question or comment.
The counterfeiting of ba:k bills or
stamps has not been attempted in
Mexico for many years. The execu-
tion of work of this kind requires
the exercise of a kind of skill thtL
the average Mexican counterfeiter ts
not possessed of. The nearest ap-
proach to this kind of counterfeiting
took place not long ago when many
thousand dollars' worth of fraudu-
lent street car tickets were made
and sold in Mexico City. There tick-
ets were engraved and were good
Imitations of the originals, btt It
was only a few days after they wPro
put on the market before the fraud
was discovered and its perpetrators
arrested.


Origin of Conoord Grape.


The development of the Concord
grape In this country was due to the
efforts of Ephraim Wales Bull, who
lived at Concord. Mass., with his fam-
ily in the year 1836. Bull purchased
a seventeen-acre farm and decided
to settle on it. There was a native
vine, named vitis labrusca, growing
in one corner of his farm, which he
watched carefully. He continued
plaating seed -each year from his
new vine until the original wild habit
was completely broken up, and from
the original stook, as black as night,
grapes were obtained, delicate of tex-
tare and of the most agreeable flavor.
During all these years Mr. Bull had
kept up his business of gold-beating to
a small shop ear bhi cottage. In
the summer of 1868, having worked
up a la e stock of vine., he plaed
the whole la the hands of a
which advertised It extenalvely. In
1864 the vine were 014old for $6 h
and for W40 a done to the trade.

THE PARAGUAYANS.
An Easy-Going People In a Bankrupt
The infusion of Spanish blood and
customs Into the Guarani has pro-
duced a people with the faults and
good qualities of both in about equil
parts. Dark of complexion, w th
strongly marked Indian features; es-
sentially gentle when unrestrained
or not unduly excited, careless (if
the morrow, poor and honest, ha-
pitable and generous, indolent an l
uncultured, Ftruongly Catholic In the-
ory, but generally lax In r ligious per-
rOl'rance(s as to dognias--th's is a3
rough ski t i tf late native people.
Asuncion, the capital, and even the
smaller places-Villa RIka, San j'.
dro. Villa ticn-have their ar stocratic fan!hl-
lea, of which the daughters and sons
are sent to Europe to be educated .
and which maintain an excluslven,.s
that must be almost isolation: but in
general the people mingle readily.
In the early morning in the streets
oP Asuncion the women gather in
their long white dresses, and bare-
footed, to sell their wares. The
younger women. judged by our stai-
dard. are beautiful, and from carry-
ing baskets and water jars on their
heads have attained an erect and
graceful carriage which our young
women could well imitate. Besides,
when they laugh they show two rows
of pearls, and their speech, in soft
Guarani patois, is worth going far to
hear.
When you see Asuncion you see
Paraguay, for it is the most advanced
city In the republic. Its streets are
poorly paved, it has mule cars, which
run at long Intervals and low speed.
and the hotel accommodations are
not exceptional; but there is a kind
of lazy, happy-go-lucky gayety about
the city that represents the national
feeling. Paraguay is hard up. Yes,
almost atone broke. The currency is
paper, and the value so small that
for a hundred dollars one receives a
basketful of ragged stuff, printed In
Germany to represent some nebulous
indebtedness of the republic. Gold
does not stay long tn Paraguay nor
does it often enter the country-Van
Norden's Magazine.

His Letter.


A French soldier on active service
was informed by the Mayor of his
village that his father had recently
died. In acknowledgment he wrote
is follows: "Monsieur le malre. I
heartily thank you for my father's
death. It is a little accident that of.
ten happens In families. As for ,iy-
ielf, I am in the hospital minus cue
leg, with which I have the honor to
salute you."-The Argonaut.

In 1907 $34.643.000 worth of eggs
were imported into Germany. This
represented about 31000,000.000 it
number, or as average of 46 per

he had come to rob an6 perhaps
murder her aunt. I 0 some way he
most have discovered that her aunt
had a large amount of money anJ
Jewels with her.
What should she do? She tried to
think; but her brain seemed to
whirl. Slowly she began to take the
pins from her hair. The moments
dragged like hours, and still her
brain refused to work. Just as abe
had taken the last pin out and hal
begMn to braid her imir. she be-
came possessed of sudden courage.
The man did not know she had seen
him and probably was only waiting
until the room was quiet before he
would act. She swiftly braided her
hair and stepping over to the tall
chiffoniere (which also had a mirror)
she stood thoughtfully gating at her
reflection.
Then she lifted the small pitcher
which stood on a small table near
the bed and poured some of the wat-
er Into a glass. After tasting its
contents she said aloud:
"How nasty! It's as warm as milk
and I'm dying of thirst" She seized
the pitcher and slipped out of the
room. If she only dared to lock the
door! Once in the hall she tiptoed
quietly to the door of her room, open-
ed It softly, and removing the key
very gently looked it on the outside,
then she sped down the wide stair

Carefully she closed and locked the
door, and after turning up one of the
electric lights sped to the telephone.
"Give me the police station," she
breathed. ".This Is Mr. Nbrris' hotise

in the house. Hurry!"
After she had hung up the receiver
another feeling of faintness selzel,
her. "I must not faint," she said
hastily bathing her face with the
cool water from the glass which sha
had placed on the table. She slip-
ped into the embrasure of one of
the windows and watched the street.
After a few moments of anguished
waiting she saw three policemen run-
ning swiftly up the street. Stumbling
to the library door she managed to)
unlock it noiselessly. In a trice she
was at the front door fumbling with
the lock. Just then a pistol shot
rang out from the top of the stairs
and with a last violent effort she
wrenched open the door and admit-
ted the policemen. She then darted
behind the door and pressed the elec.
tric button and there standing re-
vealed by the brilliant light was the
form of a rough looking man with 2
smoking revolver in his hand. A
sound as of rushing water filled her
ears and she sank fainting to the
floor.
As Helen slowly regained con-
sciousness half an hour later, she
beard the voice of her aunt as from

railroad corporation with Its cross-tie
bill running up Into seven figures and
the farmer who speeds a hundred or

are alike drawing upon the knowl-
edge of experts In all parts of the
world In efforts to learn the most
economical and most satisfactory
method of preserving wood against
the Inroads of decay.
The small organisms can grow
either In light or in total darkness:
but all of them require air. fool,
moisture and heat. If one or more
of these essential requirements Is
lacking they can not live, and the
decay of timber will not take place.
Wood constantly submerged in water
never rots. simply because there Is
an Insufidcent supply of air. This
condition accounts for the soundneAs
of the old Baltic piles. On the oth-
er hand, t wood can be kept air dry
It will not decay, because there wil!
then be too little moisture. The tim-
ber used by the Egyptlans will last
indefinitely so long as It Is bone-dry.
There are a great many cases,
however, where it is impossible to
keep wood submerged in water, or in
an absolutely air-dry condition. De-
cay may be prevented by two gener-
al methods-by treating the wood
with antiseptics, thus poisoning the
food supply of the organisms which
cause decay, and by treating it with
oils which render It waterproof. A
combination of these two mneAhods Is
most comanonly secd, as when '"),'d
is treated with creosoto, which fills
up the pores in the timber and keeps
out water, and Is also a powerful
antiseptic.

articles consist of coarst and fine

The White Company report that
the demands for their new steam cars
-both the $2000-model and the
$4000-model--exceed their most san-
guine expectations. It Is evident that
the combination of steam-the pow-
er which everyone understands and
has confidence in-with kerosene-
the fuel which everyone has on hand
and can handle without any danger
-Is thoroughly appreciated by
up-to-date purchasers of automo-
biles.

eIe tongs. The lower ends are
pointed and curve toward each other.
