FARMERS AND HARD TIMES.
What Can be Done to Remedy the
1 Tho farmer should bo the most inde
pendent, and contented of men of all
classes and pursuits iu life. By iiidiurty
and economy ho can, from tho products
of the soil secure to himself and those
depecdetit upon him, nil of tho actual
noce33arios for tho coinfoi Is of man. But
it requires toil, persuyeronco and an in
telligent conception of farmingoierations
to bring about that success that will re-
liovo him from tho depression consequent
upon "hard times" that inny bo looked
for at least once in every decade of yoara.
Tho cditior may sit in his sanctum and
with pon and poncil portray tho beauties
of tho farm and the farmer's life. He
can picturo tho waving grain, the lowing
herds, tho bleating of tho flocks with
out oven having had tho least personal
oxporienco pertaining lo tho labors of
agricultural life. But let him by por
soual knowledge and actual labor test the
beauties of farm life, and ho will realize
that it is not all of pleasure and profit to
follow such pursuits. Aud yet tho
farmer that loves to follow, as a moans
of subsistancc, tho cultivation of tho soil,
and tho attendant InborB consequent up
on such cultivation, will surely reap a
harvest of contoutmont and joy, such as
is denied to man in many of the other
pursuits and professions In which ho
must bo necessarily bo engaged, to gain a
standing as a man among men in tho
turbulont sea of life.
Lot ono conversant with things per
taining to farm lifo as existed for years in
the past, let him cast his oyo altout him
and scan for a moment those who havo
been successful farmers and those who
today, stand almost defiant of hard limes,
and you will find they are those who
have studied thu raarkots, have been
diligent in work, have looked ahead for
a time when depressions might como;
have been observant of the rules of econ
omy, and have mado their homes such in
reality. Such a farmer might well be
envied as one of creation's highest pat
ems of manhood.
Now, while directing ilio attention of
farmers to their condition in life, let me
ask the farmers of Douglas, have you
ever for one moment cast about in your
mind the amount of money that is sent
out of the county for various commodi
ties that can easily bo produced at home?
No country under tho sun is better
adapted to tho raising of vegetables of
all kinds, no country whero dairying can
be carried on more successfully, and yet
thousands upon thousands of dollars are
sent to California for vegetables, butter,
checso and canned fruits, when that
same money retained at home and kept
here in circulation would dispel in somo
degreo the bitter cry of hard times. Let
farmers reflect upon this condition of
affairs, let them resolve that henceforth

thought that farmers living in a country

Two of the Directors Pay It An
Friday afternoon Directors S. C. Flint
and W. F. Benjamin made an official
visit to the school in this district. Their
visit was confined to the fifth, sixth,
seventh and eighth grades, on account of
want of more timo at their command.
They will visit the other grades in the
near future. In fifth grade, taught by
Mies Kidder, there are seventy-four
pupils on the roll, with an average of
about sixty. A class in mental arith
metic was at tho black-boaad. Most of
them seemed to be quite proficient in the
line of work before them. A large num
ber of specimens of drawings by the
pupils were shown which indicated con
siderable skill in that line of work.
In the sixth grade, taught by Miss
Limbocker, there are forty pupils on the
roll, with an average of about thirty.
The teacher, from the short time al
lowed for observation, seemed to be do
ing good work. The black board is in a
bad condition and greatly needs repairs.
In the seventh grade, taught by Miss
Bradly, there are forty-three pupils on
the roll. A grammar class was reciting
correcting false syntax. This class
showed a good state of advancement, and
recited promptly the sentences given out
with reasons therefore. The eight grade
taught by the principal, Mr. Hamlin, had
fifteen punils on the roll. This fact
shows a small percentage of advanced
pupils, and that the school needs reor
ganization by the directors if possible,

about five times that of tbe eighth, is a
disparity of numbers that does not tally
with the labor and the rennmeration of

that this needs to be investigated and
that if practicable, the labor should be
more equally apportioned.

Curiosities About Coins.
Certain passages in the Illiadof Homer
lead to the inference that coins of brass
were struck as early as 1,151 years be
fore Christ. Tradition affirms that the
Chinese had bronze coins as early as
1120 B. C, but Herodotus, the "Father
of History," ascribes th9 "invention"
of coins to the Lydians, about nine cen
turies be I ore Christ, and there is no sat
isfactory evidence that coins were well
known prior to that date. Tbe original
process of coining was very simple. A
globular piece ot metal, having a defined
weight was placed on a die engraved
with some national or religious symbol,
and struck with a hammer until it had
received the impression. One of tbe
most ancient Asiatic coins was the Per
sian Daric, a gold coin struck during the
reign of Darius nearly five centuries B.
C. The first coinage in Rome was about
the year 600 B. C. The metal used was
bronze, and the unit of value was one
pound in weight. The coin was called
an "as," was brick-shaped and stamped
with the figure of a sheep or an ox. Sil
yer was first coined at Romo in the year
275 B. C. The first Roman gold coin
was issued only about 74 years B. C.
The Saxons coined the first British pieces
about the year 279 A. D. The first colo
nial coins issued in this country were
struck in Massachusetts ia 1652. They
wero 3, 6, and 12 cent pieces.

EXPRESS TRAIN HELD UP.
Sheriff Bogard and One of the Rob
bers Were Killed.
Maeysville. Cal., March 30. The
noitb-bound Oregon express train was
held up near this city at about 1 :45 this
morning. The result of the hold up was
tbe death of James J. Bogard, sheriff of
Tehama county, who was a passenger on
the train bound for home, and occupying
a berth in tho tourist sleeping car, and a
robber, six . feet in height, weighing
about 200 pounds, attired in a full and
complete bicycle suit, over which he had
a pair of slip overalls and in which there
weie two improvised pockets made of
fowling to hold pistols, two of which
were found on him.
Fireman A. Nethercott was seriously
injured, and probably fatally wounded,
having received two wounds in different
parts of the body.
The first intimation that the engineer
and the fireman had of the presence of
robbers was when, at the place men
tioned, one climbed over from the blind
baggage and commanded, at the point of
a pistol, that the train be stopped. This
demand was eo earnest that brakes weie
applied. The robbers could find nothing
of value in the express car safe, as the
combination was not in tbe hands of the
messenger. Tbe two railroad men were
then commanued to go into the cars.
The robbers bad a leg of an old pair of
overalls tied at one end, as they went
through the first car, tbe smoker, and
made the passengers, who were few in
number, put their coin and valuables in
it, tbe fireman being custodian, the
guard standing behind them.
The colored porter in the sleeper just
beyond the day coach became aware that
a robbery was in progress, and, Knowing
that Sheriff Bogard was in a berth, called
him. That heroic man was in his shoes
aud trousers, in a minnte and, armed
with his heayy revolver, started for the
door to the north. He crossed the plat
form between the sleeper and the day
coach, and, a.4 he entered the latter at
the south door, the robbers came in at
The sheriff stepped to one side, aimed
and fired. His bullet dropped the man
nearest him, but the second failed to
reach its target. One of tho" robbers
must have seeu Regard enter, and cn
doing so jumped down, and, running
alongside of the car, entered and shot
him from the rear. This deduction is
made from tbe location of the fatal
wound, which was in the main right
artery in the back just below the kidneys.
When the robber was shot he exclaim
ed: "lam done fori" Another asked:
"Are you killed, Aill?" and thereupon
they hastily left the car.
Ashland, March 30. When tho train
reached Ashland this afternoon it was
boarded by a reporter, who first met C;'
W. King, a butcher, who was a passen
ger from Sacramento to Butte City, and
was iu the forward end of the moker
and had his face powder-marked by a
fusilade from the robbers standing over
him. He said: "The robber? came in
the coach behind the engineer, express
messenger and fireman. The big robber
said, "Dig up jour htuff," to the man in
front of me. The passenger complied,
and emptied his money in the fireman's
sack; I threw up my hands and came
next, and as the big robber reached over
to hurry me in delivering my purse, the
short robber said, "Look out, Bill!"
"Sheriff Bogard just eutered tha rear
end of the car aud fired, the first robber
staggered and sank to his knees. The
short robber promptly shot the sheriff
over the shoulder of the sinking robber
as he was going down on his knees. The
crippled robber discharging both revol
vers toward tlie back or end of tbe car.
I think one went wild and ih- fireman
caught the other. The sheriff repeated
his first shot immediately and lhat ended
the shooting from the rear end ot the car.
The "short" robber then thot twice to
ward the rear of the car, I think from a
revolyer in each hand. One struck the
fireman in the neck. Tno "short" rob
ber asked, "Are you hit Bill?" and lis
tened attentively for a reply. The rol -
ber was on hi- knees and could not talk,
but groaned twice.
"Tho lonely brigand f coined lo realize
his situation. Everything was silenced.
The robber coolly surveyed tlw situation
and backed out of the car with guns
"There weio 10 shots fired. The fire
man came to my car moaning, utul re
peatedly sail. 'Oh. I'm fhot to pieces.'
Nobody could have shot the sheriff troin
behind. The reason tho rubber's b-tllet.
entered his back ws the peculiar twift
and turn made in the i-herifFn body in
aiming at the shoit robber."
