The Paeitlc IniprovmentCompany has recently purehused twelve thousand aere?; of land in the heart of Tehama county, for the purpose of nromothiK suhdivlHioiiH and settlement.

The terms upon which these lands are otl'erod urc es))eeially attractive. They will he sold U\ subdivisions, as above Indicated, by the payment of Interest only forthree years at which time the purchaser can begin the payment of prtne.lnttl hy paying \hv. first of livectjual annual installments. Thus no parL of (he prjiicipul is to be paid for three years, and then Ihe purchaser is to have ttve years in which to pay Ave equal annual Installments, with interest at the rate of seven per cent per annum, malting payments extending over a period of eight years. Intending piireHnsers are assured that this Is an opportunity lo purchase land of fair average qualities at $10 per acre, and good agricultural laud at $20 per acre, with other grades of laud at prices to correspond between these figures. The assertion is frequently made that good lands.suliahie forgeneral funning aqd especially adapted for fruit growing,cannot, he had In California for less than front iftil) lo $100 an acre. An examination of the hunt mthject of this advertisement will prove lo home seefcrs that this Is an opportunity for the pnrehnse of good agricultural land at. $20 an acre, and for qualities grading down to fair agricultural land at $10 an tirre, on terms of payment which should make the disposition of these lands (<> Mctual outers a result easy of accomplishment.

It has been said or sung thnt all nicu are more or less insane, differing only in degree. Certainly those who are considered sane—in which category tho gontlo reader is included—are Huble to hallucinations, and it depends upon the uxtent to which we give way bofore, and bolievu in, the illusions of the brain, whethfir we walk abroad with our follies or are placed in a padded room. Byron of ton received visits from a specter, but he know it to be it creation of the imagination. Pope saw an arm apparently come through the wall, and made inquiries after its owner. Uoethe states that ho one day saw the exact counterpart of himself coming toward him. BenJonson BpeuL tho watches of the night an interested spectator of a crowd of Tartars, Turks and Roman (Jutholies, who rose up anil fought round fitB arm chair till sunrise. Dr. Jouson heard his mother call his name in a clear voice, though she was at the time in another city. And Sir Joshua Reynolds, leaving iiig house, thought the lamps were trees and the men and women bushes agitated by tho breeze. VISIONS APPKARRI). Nicolai was alarmed tit tho appearance of a dead body which vanished and came again at intervals. This was followed by human faces, which catne into tho room, and after gazing upon him for a while departed. None of his friends was among the faces he saw. After enjoying a silent acquaintance with his visitors for some weeks, they began to speak, and he describes thoir conversation as brief and agreeable. Such visi- itors would cause many to loso their reason, but Nicolai knew they were hut the effects of indigestion. Bostock, the physiologist, saw similar figures and faces, mid after recovering from a momentary surprise, he set himself to study tho habi ts and customs of his curious visitors. This he had ainplo opportunity to do, ns they remained with him three days and nights. There was one human face constantly before him for twenty -four hours, tho features and headgear as distinct as those of a living perspn, yet having no rewomblanco to any ^one he had ever known. Finally the phantom disappeared, to make way for troops of little human figures, which disported themselves like fanticcini for his entertainment. The reason, Bays Connolly, that Nicolai and Bostock did not become hopelessly insane was because they never believed in tho reality of tho visions. The effects of tho illusions of some men have been felt in history. Religions have been founded on the words of men supposed to have been inspired, but who were merely suffering from a, form of madness which' medical science calls "'eestacy." Oliver Cromwell, lying sleepless on his couch, saw tho curtains open and a gigantic woman appear, who told him he woald become the greatest man in England. In 1806 Gen. Rapp, having important news, entered the emperor 's apartment unannounced, and found the great war rior in a rapt attitude, gazing at the ceiling. The general made an intentiouai poise, whereupon Napoleou seized his arm and said excitedly, "Look up there!" He looked and saw nothing. "Why," said the emperor, "do you not see it? It ts lay star; it is before you beaming; it has never deserted me. I see it on every great occurrence urging mo onward; it is on unfailing omen of success." SPIRITS THAT 1NSP1KKD. Some men have been inspired to persevere in their life's work by self conjured illusion. Loyola, lying wounded during the siege of Pampolmia, saw the Virgin, who encounigpij him to prosecute his mi««inii. Beuvenuto Cellini, imprisoned at Rome, resolved to free himself by self destruction, but was deterred by the apparition of a young woman of wondrous beauty, whose reproaches turned him from h's purpose. This spirit returned and conrcLJ him on other occasions when he was low spirited. Descartes was followed by an invisible person whose voice he heard urging him to continue his researches after truth. Many have fondly clung to their illusions, and though reiwonable iu most things- Imve at least been distinctly mad in one. Tasso (irmly believed that he hud a familiar genius, whose groat delight and chief recreatiou was to con- verso with him. His friend, .). 13. Alau- §0, tried to persuade him of this illusion, whereupon the poet offered to introduce bis unbelieving frieud to the spirit. But though he often heard Tasso in conversation with the imaginary being, it never mode itself visible to other oyes. Pew believo that Luther actually held • warm discussion with an important personage from the other world, yet that he believed it himself we have his word, and he has even left on record some account of tho dispute, from which it would appear that his opponent is not so wily as we have been led to beliove. At any rate ho could not wind himself argumentative^ round ihe sturdy priest. Itavaillao, while chunting tho "Mis­ erere" and "Do Profundis," fondly believed that the sounds hu emitted were of the nature and had tho full effect of a trumpet. Count Emmanuel Swedonborg believed that Up had thu privilege of interviewing persons in the spirit world. Jean Engolbrecht was under a similar impression. Zimmerman was for some time in constant fear of nn imaginary enemy, whom tie expected to arrive ot any moment, break Into aud wreck his dwelling.-"London Standard. Tho African Pygmies. The name of dwarfs, applied by somo to tbooo peoplo, has been objected to as implying deformity or arrested growth, and therefore convoying a wrong impression. Nothing of the kind can lie said of the A Wean pygmies, who, though of short stature, are woll shaped people of perfectly normal formation. It is true that the Hottentots and Bushmen show certain strange anatomical peculiarities, bnt these may be said to bo more or less accidental, being, in part at least, tho result of special and unfavorable conditions of life. The pygmies are nomadic in their habitfl, and neither keep cattle nor till tho ground, but live by hunting and snaring wild animals and birds, or, under tho most unfavorable circumstances, on wild fruits, roots and berries. Their weapons are always bows and iir- rowti, the latter usually poisoned—tho vesonrce of the weak. They have no fixed abode, and \f they build shelters at all only construct rude huts of branches. They have no government, nor do they form regular communities; they usually wander alioiit, like our gypsies, in hordes composed of a few families each. This, however, depends on tho nature of the country—in the parched deserts of the south they are not oven united to this extent. Sometimes they are to a certain extent do- pendent on more powerful tribes, who afford them protection in return for cer tain services. Their notions of the Unseen, when they have any, would appoar to bo of tho very crudest. Their languages seem lo lie distinct from others, related among themselves and very peculiar.—A. Werner in Popular Science Monthly. Nmv Finds ut Pompetl. At Pompeii some mural paintings of more than ordinary interest have recently been disclosed. In the Eighth Region, between N03. 10 and 21 of the Second Insula, via III and IV, the remarkable discovery lias beon made of a house five stories high. The upper floor, which is entered from the higher level formed by a mound of prehistoric lava, is profusely decorated, and the principal hall displays on one wall the myth of Bellerophon, a uudo figure, who, holding with ono hand tho bridle of his horse, is In the act of receiving the lotters and orders of King Pnotus, who is seated on a throne before him. Tho lower part of the houso, looking toward Siabite and the sea, was used as a bathing establishment. Tltreo steps led into the frigidarlum, which is perfect, tho lower part of tho surrounding walls being painted blue and the upper red. Tho middle of tho right wall is 00- pupicd by a picture ropresoutlng a nymph, semi-nude, borno over the waves on a sea horse. Tho horizontal band dividing the bluo from tho red surface 1 B a kind of friezo of comio or caricature scenes, representing dwarfs or pigmier in scenery evidently of the Nilecountry, fighting with various animals. One dwarf is in tho act of throwing a large- stone ut an ibis, while another is trying to suve by drawing to tho land a figure (probably a woman) fallon into the river, when, seized himself by a crocodilo, he has tied himself with a rope to another dwarf standing behind, who is ptriving with might and main to prevent his comrade from being drawn down into the water.—London Athenaeum. Tbo Hottest KofTlon. Careful observations and comparisons made by scientific Americans prove that tho hottest region on the earth is on the south western coast ot Persia,, where Persia borders tho gulf of tho same name. For forty consecutive days in tho months of July and August tho thermometer has been known not to full lower thou 100 dogs, night or day, and to often run up us high its 128 degs. in the afternoon. At Balirin, in the center of the torrid port of the torrid belt, as though it were nuturo's intention to niako tho region as unbearable as possible, no water can be obtained from digging wells 100, 200 or oven 500 feet deep, yet a comparatively immevous population contrive to live there, thanks to copious springs which break forth from tho liottora of the gulf, more than a mile from shore.—St. Louis Olobe-Democrat. Leuwenhock by means of microscopes observed spiders no bigger than a grain of sand, which spun threads so fine that it took 4 ,000 of them to equal in magnitude a single hair. The ily spider it in known luys un egg us ltutfo as itself. Dr. Mary Walker is nearly nliml and quite crippled.

A family reunion was held at Lancaster, Mass., Aug. 10 which was somewhat remarkable. Mr. aud Mrs. John W. Barnes were married there in May, 18U3, imd have lieen blessed with eight children, four girls and four boys. Tho 011- tire family were gathered under tho parental roof on the above date for the first time in eighteen years. Instances of fifty-five years of married life, without a break in HO large a number of children, ore certainly very rare, and t'!f> Barnos family of Lancaster ought to be desirable risks for life Insurance companies. The average age" of the whole family was found to be 80.8 years, ranging from 815 to 85, and the averago weight was 107.8 pounds, Tanging from 82tfJ pounds (the weight of the baby) to 120 pounds, tho weight of the oldest child.—Boston Journal, Mrs. Wlllslow's Sueooss. Mrs. Erving Winslow comes bock from London with the British stomp of ap-, proval and a budget of crested letters ' that will enable her to carry her Ibsen work all over the American continent uud reap social as well as financial suo- cot" Tho lady confines herself to drawing room interpretations of Ibsen's dramas. She dresses in "Beau Brum- 1 met" and Josephine gowns; the odor of violets clings to her draperies: she tip- tilts her chin, throws her eyes, Blopos lior ehouldors in tho most graceful way oml never raises her voice above the gentle conversational pitch. Her only "prop- \ erties" ore a email stand and a slipper ' chair. Mrs. Winslow is a very winsome lady, and if the whimsical public does not stick a pin in tho Ibsen balloon she will bo the rago next winter.—New York Letter A DISAGREEABLE VISITOR.

In some sections of the city this pest in very numerous, ono lady finding about fifty of them under her carpet the other day, and another, while at church, was informed by ft friend that one of the irre­ pressibles was industriously making u square meal on tho shoulder of her dress To those who have not yet been awakened to the importance of looking up the invader of our homes wo would say that the buffalo bug is no respecter of persons, lie would a* industriously eat your car- pots as any one else's, and if you are complacently resting in the belief that the buffalo bug is a myth, a new fungled bugaboo, we suggest to you, most respectfully, that a thorough inspection of your carpets about this time will very likely be nseful iu adding to your practical knowledge of entomology. Once seen his bugnhip will always thereafter be easily recognized. lie is a dark, hairy, wicked looking fellow, about as large as an applo seed, and is very nimble—ft regularly built sprinter.

And then, too, ho isn't at all particular about his diet—ho would as soon eat the bindings of books, or the piano cover, or your best go-to-meeting wool dress, or your husband's best trousers, as the handsomest carpet hu ever saw—he likes them all, and other things besides.

A Wuiidortiij l^innresn. The empress of Austria is not yot cured of her lov^ of wandering far away from her home. As soon aa her daughter tho Archduchess Mario Valerio is married tho Empress Elizabeth intends to start for Amsterdam, whence early in August sho will set out for Gibralter on what it is rumored may prove a voyage around the world. She is as fond of . miMstri .au exercise as ever, but unfortunately the state of her health has rendered it necessary for her to finally relinquish her seat in tho saddle. How she haa walked for some years past is a matter of common talk in Austria-Hungary. To the dismay of her ladies in attendance, the empress has often rambled over the hills of Buda and through the sylvan shades of the Wieuerwald till her companions huve been literally walked off their legs, and have been obliged to ask their imperial mistress for permission to sit and rest. Even if tho empress does not go around the world it is understood that she will certainly pay a visit to America, a country for which she has oftcu uxpressed great admiration.—Chicago Herald. A Woman ut tho Holm. "I tell you the affairs of this country will never be run right until women take a hand in 'em," said a newly married citizen. "The other afternoon a fellow got mo into a discussion ovor tho McKin- loy bill and ! went homo to supper feeling hot. In tho course of the evening my wife remarked, very sweetly and insinuatingly: " 'John, doar,' sho said, 'I saw an only too lovely piece of goods today, and I in- toud to order u dress off of it to-morrow.' " I knew that meant a fifty at least, but I said uothiug for somo time. 1 had an idea, though, and finally I decitled to risk it. " 't wish that chap would stop bothering mo with that McKiuloy bill,' I said. 'Ho worries the life out of mo with it.' " 'Oh, pay it, John, doar, pay it!' said my wife. 'Don't lot it worry you any longer! I'll wait till next month for my drets. Pay it, won't you, dear?' "1 promised to pay it the very next day, and I tell you right, hero that unless wo have a woman at the helm pretty soon tho ship of state is bound for the rocks." —Chicago norald. Prompt Gil-Is. And the Go Abroad club—where are they! Somo of them uro scattered in foroign countries; some are yet upon the sea. Only this week two of our young women—one a successful lectuior, the other a popular teacher—made a sudden decision to go to Amsterdam. Monday evening Miss W., wttiug on the porch, is seized with an idea. "Instead of going to Chautauqua I believe 1 will go to Amsterdam," uho announces to a family, long since callous to surprises. "Do you think 1 might sail Wednesday? No? Saturday? Well, perhaps Saturday will be better." Miss R. drops in on Tuesday. "1 wish, you could go with me," Miss W. snya to her.

In the long procession that passes be« foro the cashior of a savings bank aro many odd characters. The roan behind tho counter does not receive the do- posits,- little and great, without retaining also a good many atnusing iccollec thins. The other day a pleasant faced woman banded her book to tho cashier in a Boston savings bank, and said, with a good deal of what the Frouch call em- presseinent, "Next week I wish to dr /iw the full amount of my deposit." "Very well, madam." answered the cashier, looking at the book. "I thought 1 would mention it today, and then it would not cause any inconvenience," she continued, with a bright smile. "Thank you very much," replied the cashier. "Come in any timo next week and you shall have it. Or you can draw it today if yon like. We have tho amount on hand," and he smiled npon his customer as if lie took a personal interest in her plans. "No, I will come in next Wednesday, thank yon," and she tripped happily away with her.precious book. The "full amount of her deposit" was SJ10.1)1). Not long ago an Irishman explained to the cashier that lie wished to draw a certain amount from the deposit of a friend, whose book he presented. "Very well," said the cashier, handing him a printed blank. "You must have your friend sign this order. Let him put his name here, and write 'Pay to Bearer' here, and we will give you the money." Not many hours later Mr. Riley appeared again. Ho pointed to his friend'M name properly signed to the order, and also an inscription after the printed Words, "pay to ." "I don't know what ye wanted that name there for," he said, "butl wrote it in as ye told 1110." . The "name" he had written in was "Pater Barrer." There being no rule of the bank against phonetic spelling, Mr. Riley received his money forthwith.—Youth's Companion. Full Against liijrtills* Skeleton. I used to know Ingalls years ago. He was thinner then than he is now and looked just about the same. He lived in Atchison, and had tho reputation of being possessed of more brain ami lens flesh than any other adult in Runt-tut, Ono day he went up to the office of a friend of his, a doctor, and while ho was in there a newsboy dashed in. Now the kids who sold papers around Atohison in those days wore the noisiest I ever heard, and the doctor's assistant, a cheerful young student, was al ways on the alert to shut some of them up and lo prevent them from invading the privacy of his room with their stamping feet and ear pierciug yells of "S'n Louay papers." The assistant had seen this particular boy as he entered the buildiug, and in an instant had placed inside the door- Way of the office a full grown skeleton. When the youngster throw the door, open, and was midway through one of his declamations, the skeleton fell over on Mm. With a shriek that was worse even than his regular street cry the boy rolled down one flight of stairs and .tumbled into the street, aud his murmurings continued right straight along. "You've scared that boy to his death:" exclaimed tho budding senator, who was overflowing with Indignation. Then he went to the window, and bending out called to the grimy but pallid faced victim: "Come back here, boy; I'll buy some of your papers. Ho shan't hurt you." The response was instantaneous. Tho boy's sobs ceased, and ho shouted: "No, you don'tl You can't fool me if you have put your clothes on."—Interview in Washington Star. A ^uruto^u Uelle.
