TREES OF NORTH CALIFORNIA
Olanta Amongr the Reswssdi of the
State, llnvr They Floartsh
The redwocd of California la the great
tree of the Pacific roast. Two thousand
acres of It exist In Oregon along the
Chetco river. South of the Chetco a Con
tinuous redwood belt begins and Increases
In width from ten miles at Del Norte
county to eighteen or twenty ml lea and
keepa on unbroken to southern Humboldt
county. Here la a. gap, but In Mendocino
the belt becomes dense again and widens
out to thirty-five miles. South of that
county the tree grows in Isolated patches.
The climate and topography of northern
California have brought about thla limited
distribution. North and aouth along the
coast In nearly parallel ridges lie the
mountains of the coast range, aleep and
rising to SJtliudea of 1,000 to 3.0:0 feet. A
few large rivers, the Smith. Klamath,
Mad, Bel, Russian ' and many smaller
atreame cut through them to enter the
sea, and along their courses In places .are
broad bottom lands and gentle slopes.
West Of the coast range the climate Is
even and moderate, with a temperature
running from Juet below freezing to SO
degreea. Snow Ilea on the tope of only

There are two tveea or th. ,-..,..

rivers and streams. The usual type la
that of the slope; that la the growth
found on the ateep sides of the coast
ranges, and aide by side with the red
wood grow other trees. such as
fir, tan bark, oak, white fir anr
madrons. As the slopes become moder
ate, the altitude lower, the soil deeper, the
forest becomes denser, until on the rich
flata and In the gulches the second type
Is developed. On the best redwood flats

On the slopes S5 feet Is about the maxi
mum length and ten feet Its greatest dia
meter, while on the flata, under better con
dltiona, the tree grows to be- 350 feet
high with a diameter of thirty feet, and
occasionally giants exceed thla. Moat of
the redwoods are from 400 to 800 years old
The oldest tree scientifically measured was
1.4o0 years. After the tree has passed 6(0
years It uaSally begins to" die down from
the top. It has a straight, slightly tapered
trunk withdut limbs for more than 100 feet
and a crown of horlsontal branches that
may occupy a third to a half of Its
length. The roota atrlke downward at a

curate Idea of the real character la almost
Impossible. Like most autocratic man
arvhs, relates the Chicago News, he goes
about In hourly drend of assassination, and
It la said that he spends as much as V
a night to have his bedroom securely
guarded. The sultan's mistrust of his sub
jects has sometimes led to curious results.
A few years ago he was on his way to the
mosque, when he suddenly noticed that
some new telegTaph wires had been
stretched across the roadway. -No one to
this day knew what he thought would hap
pen, but he gave orders for the royal pro
cession to halt and messengers were sent
post haste to the telegraph company to
fetch men to cut down the wires. After
considerable delay this was actually done,
and then the sultan and his retinue pro
ceeded on their way. Not content with
merely having the wires destroyed, Abdul
Hamld commanded that on no account
were they to "be replaced.
The sultan'a love of ruling waa once ex
emplified In an extraordinary manner. He
had purchased a parrot, of which he grew
very fond, and he spent many hours In
teaching it to speak. The bird was an apt
pupil and learned to Imitate Its august
master's voice to perfection. One day the
parrot waa hanging In Its cage In the sul

from the cage he killed it on the spot,
then turning to the frightened servant, he
said: "Understand that in future only my
voice shall command here!"
But Abdul Hamld has a softer and alto
gether nobler side to his character an.,

spoken eloquently of his kindness. His own
dread of physical pain has made him

'Mr. 0'Conor what do you supponssto show

Mr. O'Conor told what he wished to prove.
"It Is useless to waste the time of the
court and Jvfry In proving that," said the
other; "I admit it."
Mr. O'Conor then called his next witness,
and the same question and answer were re
peated. "I admit it," said Mr. Gerard;
"don't let ua waste time." Another witness
began, and Mr. Gerard Interrupted: "I ad
mit all you say you were going to prove.
Let us hurrry along."
With a rapidity which took O'Conor's
breath away all the facts which he had
accumulated were accepted wholesale.
There he rested his case, and Gerard, for
the defense, called no witnesses, but at
once began his address to the Jury.
