THE Silk association of America and the Silk Industry association have decided to combine in making the finest possible exhibit of sHk goods and products at the world's fair. THE little ten year old daughter of Professor Hudson has sreated a great sur prise in England. She has re-written the book of Euclid, added original examples, and every one of her propaitions. THE world has cause to regret the death of that talanted lady Dr. Amelia B. Edwards, authoress and Egyptologist. She was attacked by la-grippe during her tour in this country in 1889, and never fully recovered.

THE "Toocled island" in the exposition grounds in beginning to assume the character which in great part it will have during the fair— that of a gigantic (lower garden. - Already, the floricullural depiirt- ment has received 27,000 rose bushes and other plants, several thousand of which came from abroad. These are being transplanted on tha island. THE New York legislature has enacted a law which will delight hotel keepers more than thoir guests. Heretofore a'man could deposit his valuables in the safe of the hotel and the proprietor was responsible for their return, regardless of the value. The new law limits his responsi. billty to $250.

Fnnon SHELDONJ the woman explorer of Africa.spentmany months in the dark continent, the companion of natives and surrounded by \i ild beasts and great serpants without any show of fear. She was named "the Master woman" by the native chiefs, who were ever reaedy to do hsr bidding. She returned from Africa with many trophies of her hunting expeditions where she faced tigers and escaped thecoilh of pythons.

This was exclusive of all expenses of litigation and administration. Samuel J. Tilden'a estate was originally appraised at $5,000,000. The Governor was a shrewd » buyer, but some of his purchases proved bad. With now investments the trustee* so managed, however, that New York city is not a little indebted to them for a good share of the amount that tho heirs did not absorb and which goes to the end that the testator meant a much larger sum should go to, namely, a great public library.

WASHINGTON, April 21.—Great Britain Is to be politely but firmly informed that the Monroe doctrine is still in working order, and that encroachmeutB in Venezuela are contrary to his teachings and must stop.

At Sacramento it is Sharper Thau Before and Causes Much » Damage, At Many Other Places Chimneys Fall uiid Brick Building's Are Demolished. SAN FRANCISCO, April 21.—There was a recurrence of the earthquake w.ave today in the central part of the state, perceptible in this city and noticeable as far east as Reno. It was felt as far north as Red- bluff, and south to the S^n Joaquin valley. The shock was not quite as severe as that of Monday night at most points, but at Sacramento it was sharper than any previous one and caused some excitement. At the state capitol building, one of the plaster figures above the main portico was over-' turned and precipitated to the ground. At Woodland, brick walls fell clown and a, number of chimneys were overturned. At Dixon and Davisville several brick buildings which were damaged Monday were demolished. A survey of the damages at six towns in the Vaca and Sacramento valleys show that the buildings were of & frail character. In this city and Sacramento the shock was not noticeable in strong business blocks nor the mission churches, many of which are over a hundred years old. A dispatch from Esparto says a severe shock occurred there this morning, completely leveling the brick portion of the town. Every brick chimney was thrown to the ground and wooden buildings were wrenched out of shape. Several people were painfully injured. Reports from the country^ around Esparte tell of great destruction to property. Many teams broke and ran away, wrecking many vehicles and injuring stock. Extensive excavations are reported between Esparto and Woodland. At Sacramento, the plastering; fell from a number of ceilings, many chimneys toppled, and glassware was broken in crockery stores. In the state house besides the toppling over of the plaster statue a crack was made in the ceiling extending from one end of the building to the otiier. Books were thrown from shelves in the library. At the town of Winter the shock completed the demolition of buildings injured Monday, one man being badly hurt by a falling wall. At Davisvill<) the shock seemed to exceed that of Monday, fissures in the ground showing considerable enlargement, and much additional damage being dona to property. At Dixon toda y's shock completed the wreck begun Monday. Only two or three brick buildings in town are safe. There were many nairow escapes frooi serious accidents. At Woodland, old breaks were enlarged' -and many now cracks wore noticeable, the hoiel and several prominent buildings being injured. Reports of a similar nature come from all the towns in the valley. Another slight shock of earthquake occurred at 7:15 this evening. Shocks were also reported from a number of other places in the northern part of the state and also from Carson, Nevada. DIXON, Cal., April 21.—Another severe shock was experienced here this morning, completing the wreck which was already commenced. Only t«ro or three brick buildings in town are safe, and all the occupants have moved out. No one has been injured but there were many narrow? escapes. The «people are again panic stricken and it is believed that the ruin of the town will be completed before the shock hai ceased. The wreckage is being cleared and the condemned buildings torn down before serious accidents occur. ASK A HEARING'. THE REPORT SDENIED. Among There Has JJoeii No Fight Hoomers.
