EDWARDS BROS, HlHIv Ktrcrt, Ckl/ili, Have Ihe largest and best stock $172,000 and $10,000 respectively, made to Mervyn Donahue hist year after the blanket • mortgage of $4,000,000 was placed. The money was secured to complete the Ukiah extension, broaden the gauge of the Sonoma branch and build the new ferry steamer, imtv nearly completed. To secure the payment of this loan by July 1 of this year and to guarantee the settlement of a number of lssns and damage claims against the rond, 20,000 sliarea, or one-third the entire capital Btock was hypothecated and deposited with the Mercantile Trust Cnmpanv of New York. The executors made every effort to raise the monev due to redeem the stock, and when Messrs. Burgin and McOlynn and (heir attorney, C. F. Hanlon, started Kast about two weeks ago they thought that the money was all at iheir command. It is understood that when they arrived they found certain expected payments had not been made, and en extension was asked for and granted. It is said that the entire amount has since been raised, and that the demands will be met within Ihe two weeks. The fate of this hypothecated 20,000 shares of stock belonging to the estate is very important, as it involves the control of the road. When the debt mentioned is paid, the main possibility of its forfeiture will he removed, but it is said that other features of the contract, to secure which the stock was pledged, hava not been carried out, and that this may lead to further complications. The Seligmans and their associates in the financial affairs of the mail, Landonberg,Thalhnan & Co., bankers of New-York, own 18,000 sharps and have three of the seven directors. It is saiil that owing to the nature of the contract covering the loan at issue, they cannot themselves gain ownership of this stock, but if sold to satisfy their demands they mL'ht see that it passed into hani's friendly to themselves, and they would thus control Ihe road. There are differences between the Steligmuns and the executors regarding the management of the ruuii, me legal construction ut cuiaraus involved and the equities of the two sides, and one of the differences is known to be in the opinion given by tlio legal advisers of both Bides as to the rights of the estate regarding this hypothecated stock. Although the visit of the executors was largely to adjust theBO differences On Five Years Time. | amicably if possible, there is a possibility fortheiull amount of the purchase, requirini! ; thilt litigation between the two interests I larity nt home will prove a contagion throughout this Congressional District, and his election by the greatest Democratic majority obtained for many years is a certain result of his Candida.'!}'. He is quite a young man, but possesses a inind stored with the richest intellectual treasures which cannot fail to distinguish him even among great mon, and he will bring fame upou himself and the place from which he hails a) well.

Several days ago we printed a dispatch stating that the working men in Great Britain own two thousand million dollars' worth of stock in co -operative associations in the country, which had in the past ten years divided to them over $200,000,000 in profits. The lateBt report of our Treasury Department sbows that last year we sold abroad $25,073,306 of American cattle, of which Oreat Britain took $24,612,513, and all the rest of the world took $1,060,853. Of canned beef we sold abroad $6,020,070, of which Great Britain took all but $1,239,207; of fresh beei we exported $13,002,713, of which the British took all but $1,054,423; of salted beef we exported $3,699,735, of which they took all but $1,109,454,; of pork products we sold to foreigners $77,744,331, of which Great Birtain took $48,360 ,41 )8. All of which goes to show that, these same British, of whom we have heard so much talk, are rather good, customers of ourB ; pretty good feeders, and have a tolerable amount of capita! invested for "free trade paupers."

It is asserted by men of high prcfes sionat ability that when the system needs a stimiilent nothing equals a cup of fresh cofle*. J Those who desire to rescue the drundard from his cups will find no better substitute for spirits than strong new-made coffee, without milk or sn^ar. Two ounces of coffee, or one eighth 6f a pound, to one pintof boiling water makes a first-class beverage, but the water must be boiling, not merely hot. Bitterness comes from boiling too long. If the coffee required for hreakfust be put in a grauitized kettle over night, and a pint of cold water poured over it, it can b« heated to just the boiling point, and then set. back to prevent from further ebullition, when it will be found that while tho strength is extracted, its deiicnte aroma is preserved. As our country consumes nearly ton pounds ot coffee per capita, it is a pity not to have it made in the best manner. It is asserteil by those who have tried It that malaria and epidemics are avoided by those who drink a cup of hot coll'ee before venturing into the morning air. Burned on hot coa's it is a disinfectant for a sick room. By some of our best physicians it is considered a specific in typhoid fevor. The Areata Union (Rep) relieves its I 'eelingB on tho subject of the llepublican party and silver as follows: When the silver bill went into Senate that body stripped ofTthe I louse riders and sent it back a free clean coinage bill. It now lies in the hands of a House Committee unfriendly to free coinage, where Speaker Weed,who is likewise opposed to ...i.;<n ,„o,,ov. KtrRlnfti! n oomt to send it. It is not likely that the bill as it left the Senate will become a law, for if the House should pass it the President would prob ably rnfuee to sign it, as it Is well known that both he and Secretary Windom are opposed to free coinage. The Pacific const if) as much of a unit in favor of free coinage of silver as it I N on the Chinese question. The Republican party indorsed free coinage in its platform and if the measure is defeated by a Republican Congress or vetoed by a Republican President the party will be badly left in the next election, as it would deserve to be, and don't you forget it, Mr. Humboldt Timet. The SweedUh Cure for DrunkennftM. It may be a sntjiriso to many to learn that statistics prove the sea lo be Biifer to live on than the land. The late Thomtis Gray, of the Board of Trade, Murine Do partment, London, said: "I have always The Rev. Win. P. Spragne of Kalgan, North China, writes as fullows to the Missionary Herald: If any one doubts the existence of China's great wall, let him come with me to Kalgan, and see for himself the identical wall built by the first Emperor Chin, in 200 B. C. Take n steamer across the Pacific to Tientsen, then a native boat up the Pei Ho River three days, then pack saddle or mule litter five days more, through mountains and plains to Kalgan. Before you reach the city you see a dark line along tho hilltops just beyond the town, and by the time you enter our compound you see the wall stretching away over the mountains as for as the eye can reach, both "art and west, with towers on all the prominent elevations. As we pay it a visit for closer inspection, you find it a windrow or ridge of reddish- brown porphry rock broken, not cut, into irregular blocks. These are so well fitted to each other that the outer surface is tolerably smooth, and has somewhat the appearance of craary patchwork. It is about ten feet broad at the base and fifteen feet high, the sides sloping to n sharp ridge like a steep house roof. You may follow this wall eastward to the sea, and westward to Kansuh, tho northwestern province; and so doing you will have traversed the entire northern frontier of China, fifteen hundred mileB. Though you find several hundred miles of adobe sun-dried mud wall, yet other hundreds of miles are good brick and higher than at Kalgan. By the time you have traced its length you will be willing to concede not only that China had a great wall, but also that the ruler who could conquer so vast a country, drive out the invading Tartars, »nri build a fortification fifteen hundred miles long to and keep them, w«i« worthy to be called the first empe.":r, aud to give his name (Chinal to the country. If any one laughs at the folly of spending BO lunch labor on such a useless defense, let him remember that it was a defense only against horseback riders, armed with nothing but bows and arrows. A few guards on the wafchto 'vers could, with their signal fires on the mountain tops, easily rouse the villagers, far and near, to the defense of their homes. And this wall accomplished its purpose for over a thousand years, when the great Ghenghis K.'han with his bruve Mongol followers broke their way through. TI UB section of the great wall becomes for a half mile the city wall of Kalgan. A beautiful temple in built on this wall to celebrate Ghenghis victorious passage.

It is near Peking and a far more imposing struct ure. This is .only mi inner arm of the great wall, but five hundred miles long, itiiil not so old by seven hundred years It is built of cut granite and good brick, and is thirty feet wide at tho base, twenty-five feet wide at the top, and thirty feet high. It is a line sight as it winde over the highest mountain tops. A STHANGE TRUE STORY. The habitual drundard in Norway and Sweden renders himself liable to imprisonment lor his love of utrong drink, and during his incarceration he is required to submit lo u plan of treatment for the cute of his failing which is said to produce marvelous results. The plan consists in making the delinquent subsist entirely on bread and wine. Tho bread is steeped in a bowl of wine for an hour or more hefore the meal is served. The first day the habitual toper takes his fo-,d in this way without repugnance; the second day he finds it less agreeable to the palate; f:u&Hy he positively loathes the sight of it. Kxporience S I IOWB that a period of from eight to ten days of this regimen is generally mora than surflceint to mako u man evince the greatest aversion to anything in the shape of wine. Mai.y men after their incarceration become total abstainers. 4 Tfntindet! PanpMr III** In a ffnepttat and Prore* tn 1)c> a Millionaire. The keeper of the lodging room for vagrants in the Fourth Precinct station house reported it the hospital late one bleak night In winter that one of their lodgers, a new comer, was very ill. The man was brought to the hcxpltal in an ambulance, and the following history of his case was placed UQpn our records: "Thomas ITunn, aged 47, residence Yonkarx. Widower. Born In Ireland. Had lived ill the United States thlrty -uine years. Painter. No friends. Complains of pain in left hypochondria and In umbilical regions. Says he was kicked in the abdomen at 10 a. in. the day before by an unknown man on Coerry street. He Is of medium height and weight and dark complexion. Dressed in dork blue sack coat and trousers, with blue flaunel shirt, heavy shoes and woolen socks. Clothing evidently new and of quality worn by laboring men for holiday drees. No external sign of injury. Pulse and temperature normal." I had the uiun put to bed and ordered an opiate for hiuj, under which his pain disappeared and he fell asleep. The following morning his general condition was good, and, as our beds were in demand, I decided to hove him transferred to another hospital. He wished to drees himself for the ride, and, as he sat up in bed to don some nf his clothing, he suddenly expired. I rushed to bis side, but before I could reach him the spark of life had gone out. Ha died without a groan. The autopsy held by the coroner revealed an injury to the internal organs sufilnient to cause death. He had doubtless been kicked some days previous to his death, and had ,tot realized the eerious nature ot the blow. As we had no addresses by which we could find his relatives or acquaintances, we were obliged to give a minute description of him. to the newBi>apers. Xo news resulting from tins advertisement, his body was sent to the morgue. A few days later a man called at the hospital and asked to see the house surgeon. I was busy at the time, and be amused himself meanwhile in looking ever our '/Reporters' Book," a volume kept for the benefit nf newspaper men. When I came to him he had the book open at the entry relating to Thonia* Hunn. I at once recognized him as & private detective. "What do you know about Thomas Humii" he asked. "Very little. What you read there Is the extent of my information regarding him." "I am looking for a gentleman who disappeared recently from an uptown hotel. His case is mysterious. When I read in the newspapers about Hunn I became curious regarding him. - ' "But Hunn was a workingrnan. He hail nothing of the gentleman about him." "Come with me to the morgue," said the detective; "you m&y be right, but I want to satisfy myself." As soon as he bad looked at thn body of the man I had known as Thomas Hunn, he took eomo photographs from his pocket. They were pictures of the dead "painter." Sending for the brother and son of the missing mau, the detective minted to me a strange fttory. "The vagrant who died ucder the name ot Thomas Hunn was, up to ten days ago, a hospitable, genial man, living in liiit.i y at a hotel on Fifth avenue.

Now whtie it is true that boiling will kill tin 3 germs oi disease, vet the fact has been brought to our notice, says Annals nf Hygiene, by so high an authority as Dr. Chas. M. Cresson, that while boiling kills the germs of a parttYulnr disease, in reality, rendors the water more impure than it WOB before, because by the very death of these germs, dead organic matter ia allowed to remain in tho water, which is polluted by putrefaction. Hence, while boiling is n most excellent precaution against the occurrence of typhoid fever or similar diseases, when we have occasion to think that the genua of these diseases exist in the water that we drink, yet we must remember that this boiling does not purify the water; it simply removes from it the specific power to produce a special disease.

There are few people in Boston who ara aware that at Belmont, but a few mile* nut In the suburbs, there stands a group of oak trees, beneath which, without a doubt, the red men of the forest once pitched their wigwams. Aboriginal forest trees in New England are exceedingly rare, and where, here and there,. tbsiii ctcuds a single specimen, as the great Avery oak at Dedham, it becomes celebrated in local history aud sometimes in song aud story. It is, then, somewhat strange that Mr, Emerson, who wrote of the trees of Maasachu- setts, should have entirely overlooked the W'*» verlyoiiksof Belmont. It has been claimed by some that they are at. least 1,000 year* oM; but of this, of course, there Is doubt...
