On Friday Senator Stanford address
ed the United States senate on his bill
to provide the government with means
sufficient to supply the want of a sound
circulating medium. In the course of
his remarks he said that the scheme of
the bill is to supply an ample amount
of money for business purposes. He
mentioned lands as security because
they appear to be the most certain of all
security and are sufficient to furnish all
the money needed. The people, he
thought, will have more confidence in a
financial measure that is new and radical
if it has at present only land for a basis.
The rate of interest in the bill is fixed at
2 percent, but in time may be reduced as
experience may teach. The rate of in
terest charged by the government under
the bill will not necessarily fix the gen
eral rate of interest for business pur
poses. That will always be determined
by its value in use. The farmer having
the best security wiil borrow for his

miles south of Nebraska City, had forty

farmer in that neighborhood states that
he is harvesting forty bushels from a
sixty acre field of corn for thirty-two
successive years, and it was a poor stand
this summer. Mr. Rice of Brownville,

THE SOUTHERN COAST COUNTRY.
ElversMe, tae Ceater of the Oraage Caltare
la Soatkera Caltfismia.
B. W. Emerson, visiting Yosemite
wrote, "This is the only place I have
ever found that came up to the brag."
I have found a place nestled among the
mountains of southern California that
exceeds any brag that I have ever seen
of it, and I had heard a good deal about
Riverside. Indeed, in its location and
peculiar characteristics it exceeds any
thing of the kind I had imagined as
existing, either in thiB country or any
other. If there is anything richer in
plant life than a well proportioned
orange tree with the golden hued fruit
hanging thick through its dark green
foliage, then my taste is at fault Im
agine five or ten acres of trees thus
laden, a tasteful cottage embowered
among them, the trees crowding it on
every side, save perhaps a small vacant
place in front with ornamental shrulw
and flowers, or a bit of clean lawn.
Here you may travel miles, passing
just such exquisitely embowered homes,
continuously, on oither side. Those
beautiful groves usually occupy blocks
of five or ten acres, occasionally twenty.
Most of them are open to the southwest,
save perhaps a low square-trimmed hedge
of Monterey cyprus, along the street
line. Outside of this, separating tho
sidewalk from the carriage track, is
always a row of trees usually the pepper,
to me the most beautiful ornamental
tree grown, or some variety of the
eucalyptus, or the magnolia. These
almost always alternate with the. fan
palm, and the spaces between are often
filled in with narrow beds of mignonette,
rows of chrysanthemums, geraniums or
other flowering plants,not for just a little
distance in front of the house, but ex
tending the whole length of the place
ten, twenty or forty rods. In some in
stances a row of rose bushes of many
varieties extends the whole length. In
front of one place I think there are as
many as twenty varieties of roses, nearly
all in blossom. This, mind you, is out
in the street bordering the driveway.
Many of the dwellings in these orange
groves are modest cottages, displacing
but few of the trees, some are magnifi
cent houses with large spaces cleared of
the trees, and the ample grounds elabor
ately ornamented, but after all, differing
but little from their less pretentious
neighbors, as the principal effect comes
from the magnificent background of the
rich, dark-foliaged orange trees.
If a single one of these laden trees
could be transferred to the grounds of
some residence in our city it would at
tract more attention than any other or
nament The project of having a grove
of orange trees in bearing, at the
World's Fair, is now being discussed
here, and these Californians have such a
way of carrying out any project that
seems to strike them as desirable, how
ever impossible it may seem to others, it
will doubtless be done, and prove one of
the most interesting features of tho ex
hibition. In some of these groves there
aro no dwellings yet, just soild blocks of
There are between two and three
thousand acres of bearing orange trees
in Riverside already, and what has es
pecially interested me is that these are
not owned in large tracts by outside
capitalists, as many of the large fruit
ranches of California are, but in small
Tho recent census gives to Riverside a
population of something near 5,000, but
the town proper is but a mere village,
though well built what there is of it,
and till you have looked about, you
wonder at seeing such fine business
places, large hotels, beautiful opera
house and one of the best Y. M. C. A.
buildings in the state. The city govern
ment extends over fifty-four square
miles, and the people are scattered
through the orange groves, covering
that portion of this area now planted.
Even the city lots adjoining the business
blocks have been carved out of orange
orchards, and you can go in any direc
tion more than two or three blocks be
fore you come to the beautiful homes
surrounded by the loaded trees. In one
direction an avenue stretohos eight
miles. More than half of this direction,
it is 120 feet wide with a double carriage
track and wide walks. Irj the center
runs a row of tho beautiful fern-hke-foliaged,
pink-berried, pepper tree, with
a line of eucalyptus on one side, and one
of the stately palms on the othereparat
ing the street walks from tho carriage
tracks; magnolias stand at the corners
when cross streets intersect I have
seen most of the noted avenues of
Europe and of our eastern cities, hut no
where one finer than this in itself. But
the distinguishing feature which makes
it much grander than any of these, is
the continuous succession of the wonder
ful orange groves on either sido the
entire eight miles, each surrounding a
beautiful house, An illustration of this
avenue is given in connection with
Charles Dudley Warner's "Our Italy"
in the November Harper, but it is a
miserable caricature giving no idea of it
And this avenue differs from miles of
other avenues and streets only in being
wider and longer, with the almost per
fect road beds, these avenues are among
the most delightful drives in the world.
And there is a business side to these
orange groves, quite as surprising and
interesting. From the crop of 1889-90
there were shipped from these groves at
Riverside 1,400 car loads of oranges, re
turning to the growers nearly a million
of clean money. I noticed in a Los
Angeles paper the other day, that the
railroad officials estimate that it will re
quire 3,780 cars to move the crop now
maturing in southern California, and of
these they apportion 1,800 to Riverside,
nearly half, Tho growers think they
will need 2,000, But of this business
side, another time They use snob Urge
figures here in speaking, not only of the
amount and value of their orange crop,
but of their margin of profit left the
growers, it takes one's breath away, and
I want more time to look into the
As to tho character of the people,
there are some indications lying at the
surface. In size and architecture the
churches have more the appearance of
those usually found in large cities. A
public library of several thousand
volumes is open day and evening. In
connection with it is one of the largest,
best lighted and most comfortably fur
nished reading rooms I was ever in. On
its tables are all the prominent maga
zines and reviews, and not only the local
and state papers, but the leading jour
nals of all the great eastern cities.
Joseph Cook of Bostbn,-was posted for
his great lecture "United America" for
last night The winter .rains had set in
the day before, and they came down
as though they had a big job on hand to
moisten these hills and valleys. But in
spite of the wet streets and rainy night,
I doubt if the noted lecturer often has
larger or more appreciative audiences in
cities ten times the size of Riverside,
than greeted him in their beautiful
opera honso. Three nights before, at
the same place, Clara Morris gave one of
her noted readings to a crowded house,
and I'm told that the best talent that
comes to the Pacific coast appears here.
It looks to me very much as if the peo
ple of this quiet little town among the
mountain enjoyed what is often boast
ed of and seldom realized, the advant
ages of a largo city, while their homes
are virtually in the country.

Artificial Skull Shaping.
Astonishing success has attended the
efforts of Dr. Lannelongne, an eminent
specialist of Paris, to give intelligence to
an idiot girl. Though four years old,
the child could neither walk nor stand,
and never smiled nor took notice of any
thing. The doctor concluded that the
abnormal narrowness of the head ob
structed the growth of tho brain, and in
May last he made an incision in tho cen
ter of the skull and cut a piece of bone
from tho loft side. The result was mar
velous. Within less than a month the
child could walk, and she has become
quite bright playing, smiling, and tak
ing notice of everything around her.
A Gorman anatomist has called the

terical women who are affected with a
kind of "puin-joy" not only experienc

prove very painful. A young woman
was introduced who had seriously injur
ed her lower jaw during a paroxysm of

having tho necessary removal of part of
the jaw and ligature of two arteries per
formed without an anaesthetic, and sub

TnE POTATO DISEASE.
In Denmark, some interesting, and
perhaps very valuable, researches into
tho potato diseaso have been made by
Prof. J. L. Jenson. The diseaso is found
to consist of a fungus, whose spores are
carried by the wind, and which first at
tacks the foliago of tho plants. It
spreads to the tubers in about seven
days by spares washed down from the
stem and foliage. Considering these
facts, it was thought that tho tubers
might bo protected by moulding tho
soil into a broad range, three or four
inches high and ten or twolve inches
wido, after the first weeding, and a fur
ther earthing up on one side only caus
ing the plants to bend so that tho spores
would fall away from tho ridges within
seven days after tho appearance of tho
disease on the foliage. Some 150 farm
ers are said to have experimented in this
way, with these astonishing results:
Where no moulding or earthing was
done, the percentage of diseased po
tatoes was 34; where the moulding was
imperfect, 12; and where the moulding
was perfect, only 1. Infection during
harvest was prevented by allowing the
tubers to remain in the ground for a
month after the withering of the tops.
A cold wave is defined by Prof. T.
Russell as a fall of temperature in
twenty-four hours of 20 over an area of
50,000 square miles, the temperature in
some parts of this area descending to
35. Between 1880 and. 1890 no less than
691 cold waves were recorded in the
United States. In the great cold wavo
of January 17, 1882, the fall of 20' ex
tended over an area of 1,101,000 square
miles, and the fall of 10' included
2,929,000 square miles. In Bix cold waves
of the ten years the area of the fall of
20 was more than a million square
miles. Cold waves follow a day after an
area of low pressure, reaching their
greatest extent when both conditions

From a letter writton by Mrs. Ada E.
Hurd of Groton, S. D., we quote: "Was
taken with a bad cold, which settled on
my lungs, cough set in and finally ter
minated in consumption. Four doctors
gave mo up saying I could livo but a
short time. I gave myself up to my
savior, determiued if I could not stay
with my friends on earth, I would meet
my absent ones above. My husband was
advised to get Dr. King's New Discovery
for consumption, coughs and colds. I
gavo it a trial, took in all eight bottles;
it has cured me and thank God I am
ti well and hearty woman." Trial bot
