the Chronicle by entering its edito

he had 'a good thing on Sanford and

be afraid to publish it.

with dignity, and gazing inquiringly

The boot remained there, however,
while the following ridiculous nui

Gage, pulling out his Watch. .So

So they got ir.to a coupe and were
driven out to Golden Gate Park.
At the entrance the Governor and

'What!' yelled Sanford and Gage
in the same breath.

Governor, 'such a charge is exorbi

'Hang the law!' growled Cabby.
My money bought and paid for this

'Hem!' coughed the Governor,
looking slyly at Steve, who began
to grin. 'That's all well enough

'But it's twic-j the distance!'
'Yes, but its a competitive point.

'It was Steve's turn to cough
the Governor's to grin.
'Well,' said the Governor with
sigh, 'take us to the Cliff.'
At the Cliff House the Governor
and Stephen drank their beer smd
smoked a cigar, und listened to the
barking of tlie seals, and lilhid their
lungs with the Seabreeze. Suddenly
Steve clapped himself on the leg and
'By Jove, Governor! I forgot
that lot of coal of Smith's that the
sheriff is to sell at 3 o'clock. It's 2

at least a thousand dollars will gone.'
'Good heavens!' cried the Gover

had been leanirg vr li e halconv

'We want to leturn t ) town imme

'Ya-a?, I s'pose so.' said Cabby,
slowly chewing a straw, i ;t I'll take

The Governor growled somewhat
between his teeth and tendered C j.

temptuously. 'In heaven's name, how far wiil
your extortion go?' snorted the Gov
ernor. ,IIow much do you want?'
'Five hundred more,' camly remark
ed the haekmsin.
'Hey!' shrieked Steve and the Gov
"Five hundred, and not a cent less,

spurted the governor,

can make using my nacK. lin wiiun

With a dismal groan th. Governor
ind Steve emptied their pockets and
counted out the money.
Now. see here, said Qabby, as he
closed the dor of the hack on his vic
tims, "I've dona for wunst what you
fellows do day in an' day out an' hare

Hereupon the hackman clapped the
door to with a bang, and climbing to
his seat drove at a rattling pace to the
place where the Sheriff was sibout t
sell out poor Smith. Smith was a coal
dealer who didn't have special rates.

Voltaire Cured the Decay of his
In the "Memoirs of Count Segur"
there. i3 the following anecdote: "My
mother, the Countess de Sgur, being"
asked by.Yoltaiie respecting h-r
heahh, to'ld him that the most pa iitul
feeling she had arose from the decay
in her stomach, and the difficulty of
finding any kind of aliment that it
could bear." Voltaire, by the way of
consolation, assured her that ho was
once lor ii.-.-.rij a year in the same
state, and believed to be incurable,
but thai never the less si very simple
remedy had lestored him. It cii
Msted in taking no other noui isinnet.t
than the ymlks of eggs heated up with
the flour of potatoes and water."
Though this ciicumtaiice concerned
so extra irdinary a person as Voltaiie,
it is astonishing how liitie it is known
and how ra't-ly tlie remedy is prac
ticed. Its clhe.vy, however, incases
of ebility. can not be questioned, and
thu follow intr is the mode of prepar
ing this valuable article of food as
recommended by Sir John Sinclair:
Beat up an egg in a bowl and then add
six tabh spoonfuls of cold water, mix
ing the whole well together; then and
two tablespounfuls of farina of pota
toes; let it be mixed thoroughly with
the liquid in tbe bowl. Then pour in
as much boiling water as will conveit
the whole in to a jolly, and mix it
well It may be taken alone rr with

disorders. The dish is light and easi
