THE • EVESTING GAZETTE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11^1883. TTIE orKMATioN'nf trnc'ientomy just practiced upon the (termnn Crown Prince, is one that is only adopted a* an ultima limit by the surgeons, and it means that it is only done to prolong for a short time ^tho prince's life, and that he will not five to succeed his father who is now a nonagenarian. The sufferings of the Crown Frinca but afford father proof that entire happiness is denied to men on this planet. Born with a goWen spoon In his month, never knowing what it was to fear 11 creditor, surrounded by every luxury from his cradle, wedded to a charming woman, blessed with a family of noble children, regarded for twenty seven years as the soon-to-be emperor of one of the most enlighted nations of parth, he, tor the past two years has seen tl.e king of terrors close at hand, and with his slow but sure approach the vanishing of all his dreams, and hopes and plans.

Box 1227, New York City. —One signing himself "Patron" or" ders us, (don't request, but orders us) to leave Old Timer, alone and stick to the news only; and adds that it is very wrong in us to "burlesque" the good .old man. As Old Timer himself don't complain, it seem to us that Patron Is fretting needlessly; but Patron is not the first man we have known to borrow grievous trouble over matters that do not concern him. He evidently labors under the impression that each and every article in the GAZKTTKJS written for his especial benefit; but our vanity is not great enough to make us believe we ever shall be able to put in articles that will be enjoyed by every one of our readers; hence we try to please all tastes,—have something in each issun to please Patron and everybody else. Not an angel, even, could succeed in publishing only what everybody would delight to read. We would suggest to Patron to skip Old Timer articles, and otimra that do not suit his fancy. (Jiving aa we do so much reading matter every day for the small sum of two cents, it does seem to us that Patron ought to be so generous as to be will-, ing to accord space oncd in a while to our friend Old Timer, who enjoys the publication of the interviews had with him as much as Patrgn appears to take pleasure in finding fault with us.

It Is biiflt nfU-rtheBlylcof nn English castle, with turrets rising skyward from all corners, niul H center tower from which a magnificent view of the surrounding country Is obtained. As one rides up California street tho first house passed is that of .United States Senator I.elund Stanford, president of the fjreat Southern Paclllc railroad system. Ad j oininf; lt on the west nnd perched O n the top of the hill is the Hopkins structure, mention of which has been made. Unlike the Stanford residence, however, the Hopkins house is pretentious to ft fault, nnd in the gingerbread and filagree, work the term "shoddy" la plainly marked. An immense colored granite wull surrounds it. A block distant brings one to the Crocker mansion, on the corner of California ami Taylor F,treet3. The first tiling that attracts attention In looking at the Crocker house is a high board fence that rears itself to the air on the Sacramento street side. It is not altogether an unsightly object, OH the skillful hands of a gardncr have trained vines and climbing flowers about it; hut even these do not climb high enough to hide the painted boards. The main interest In an pxrorlor View of the Crocker mansion rests in that fence. It, is a famous fence and. In consequence, lias a history. Any bright Rnn- Blilny day you clinvh the hill you will find from three to a dozen persons standing around gazing at the fence, nnd listening to Its history. It is the biggenl part of a San Francisco guide's stock in trade and he never tiresof telling it. "That fence you see," narrates thu guide, "was put up there coz the man as owns the lot wouldn't Bell out son" Crocker could have Ihe hull Frenchmen >*ot on Their Moicte. The Frenchman cares little to contest In anything where mere muscular ability Is at an. advantage, says ft Parisian visitor. He pursues sport, as he does art—striving to develop its fine points, aiming to become expert and admiring only the skill that may be attained In the exercise. We have no such thing as a national game, nothing that approaches to your baseball, or polo, or the English cricket. Sport wltfi'^us means, as a rule, horse racing, and undoubtedly our Jockeys, of whom wo think highly, would compare favorably with the best that this country knows. The exercise that really occupies our attention as a national institution Is fencing, and that probably arises from the military character of the notional life. Much of the energy that the American youth puts Into play and physical contests is absorbed by the government'ln recruit- Ing the aniry. Here the boys of the village have'to provide their own amusements, their own exercises, and have to depend upon themselves for acquiring the discipline that Is M> essential to really successful sport. With us the government provides thu exercise and thn discipline, and if tho young man can get any amuse- out of It Vo much the better for them.

The young lady who wants a model husband must be, hence this information is freely given. Now, 1 know just euch a man as she wants, except, perhaps, one or two minor qualifications. The first is, that he is a little older than the required age. This she mighc.excuse, for the reason given by the gentleman aforesaid, viz: that he had been looking, lo, these many years . for a young lady that did not chew gum; that did not wear false frizzes or anything else false; and that could not whistle; one that would not go to church late and trudge .through the aisle to a front seat every time she . bought a new bonnet or a new dress; ahe mnat have sufficient.control of her ; curiosity not to glance over her shoulder on passing another lady to see whether or no she was. wearing a last year's dress; she must not be able, on arrival home to describe the dress of . every lady ahe has passed; she must be handsome and not tell of it; handsome by nature not by a/t; and, lastly, to know how to cook a meal for two without the assistance of a hired girl. The man we ref«r to U about twenty years older than U called for by the young lady, but he posaeases double the amount uf money she asks, which should be a sufficient Inducement for her to accept' the trifling addition of twenty years. it til* young lady fulfills the requirements of the *ngell« gentleman, and »o Inform* the GAZZTTX we will camw the •cqosiaiABoe to fe« formed tt once.

Relieved of its verbiage thp story of the fence IB that soincthhig like ten years ago, when Crocker Imilt Ills home on the hill, he owned all lint » lot S.'ixlOO feet in filze, With a frontage on Snvramcnto street. This little strip of ground wjiffthe property of one Yunn, an undertaker, who owned anil occupied a small dwelling which was located on It. Prior to bnild- Ing nn aKent of the millionaire neROtlatcd for the properly In a quiet manner and got R price of $.'),000 on it. He did not close the bargain, preferring first to see hla principal. Pending this, Yvnig' in some 'mnnncr became aware that the property was to be Ironpht for Crocker, ami when tho agent returned to close the bargain he advanced Its price to $0,000. Tills necessitated tho agent's making a second trip to his principal, and after gome discussion Crocker, who wanted the whole block, decided to pay the price rather than spoil the appearance of his property, nnd told his agent to purchase nt $6,000. \Vilh ti check for that amount tho agent suiiijlit, Yung, only to Hud that property on S.'icnunento street had again advanced, nnd tliBt Yung's 25x100 foot lot and a worthless building were quoted Bt $0,000, or Just about $7,000 more than they were worth. Again was Crocker consulted, and iiLTaiu did lie tcllhls agent to ticcede to t.hc undertaker's demands. The latter, however, had not reached tho top price yet, and when u check for $9,000 Was offered him for the property he coolly Informed the- millionaire's representative that he must have $12,000 for the property or he would not selL This was loo much trvcn for Crocker. It was not so much the money he cared for as it was the outrageous demands of the undertaker. The millionaire lost all desire to on n the lot and went on building his palace and devising means to tench Yung n lesson. 'At li\st he hit upon a plan, lie would fence his place In so high and light that no rity of sunshine could n*ch the IIOUM.-. The undertaker and his family watched'the building of the palace from their back windows and argued that the millionaire would have to come to time. They decided that the next time the agent came around the price would be $1">,000. The agent never came, and one fine morning' a group of carpenters put iu an appearance. Post holes of great depth nnd large caliber were sunk In tho ground. Soon great poles that would put to blush the tallest telephone sticks were planted, and then It dawned upon tho Yungs that they were to be fenced Iu. They protested and pleadedjn > vain. They offered the property at $9,000, then $0,000, and then :finally offered to' give It to Crocker for- the Old original $3,000. But the millionaire would have none of It. Ho wanted to fence Iu his yard, nnd as tho structure grew under tho hammer his attachment for It grew, and today the millionaire is said to admire it more than any portion of his handsome place. The disgruntled body embnlmer, afteor finding he had overreached himself, devised ull sorts of means to annoy Ills millionaire neighbor. Hej and his family stuck it out in the house as long as they possibly could, but tjiey became sick finally for tho want of sunshine and were compelled to move awn'y. They then hit upon, as they thought; a happy plan of getting even. They gave the house rent free to a Chinese laundryman, stipulating only that the pagan should rig n scaffold-, ing and stretch his lines so that the washing of many families would be visible from the windows oC the millionaire, Crocker rebelled at this, and after vainly endewvorlng to have t^ie wash house removed the inlllioiiiiire's carpenters spliced the long po^ts and the" fence Was built so high that save from tho front no light whatever entered the inclosed wash house. This move served the purpose, tho pagan gave up his establishment and, as no one would rent it, Ynng sojd it to a contractor «nd it was moved sway.—San Francisco Cor. San Diego Union.

N to Prevent Railroad Collisions. A most wonderful Invention Is reported from Vienna. An Austrian engineer has, it Is said, designed a truck to run before every rnllway train, being maintained always at a fixed (but rulj as table) distance In front by th^force ot an electric current transmitted along tiio metuls from a dynamo on the engine. —Tho current is con. ducted thvqngu mercury, contained in glass tubes on the pilot truck. If, therefore, the truck comes Into collision the tubes are broken and the contact consequently destroyed. The interruption of the current Instantly and automatically, applies the breaks on the following train. It Is claimed by the Inventor that_ two expresses, fitted with 'this system, might with impunity be set to run full tilt at each other.
