Sheep dip is a terrible drain upon
farmers of the Inland Empire which

rr-oucher, of Amity, who recently
made a queer discovery as to how worms
get into apples, has just had a peculiar
personal experience: He grew ill one
day last week and began spitting blood

and among that ejected was a strange
looking beast about an inch long," of an
oval shape, with three legs on either
side about half an inch in length, and'
on the whole a very queer-looking speci
men of animal creation. The doctor
says he feels an absence Sow in his reft
lung, where tbe thing was probably
located, and is much easier now because
of its removal. Doc is sorely troubled
with worms this year.
Lovers of music will be highly edified
by the perusal of a New York dispatch
today giving an account of the contest
between a pair of thumpers yesterday.
The account says: Prof. (?) W. J.
Waterbury is still champion ' long-endurance
piano-player of the world. His
record, is now seventeen hours' contin
uous playing. Professor Waterbury and
Miss Ada Melville began playing in a
museum at 9 a. ro. His record was
fourteen hours ; hers was ten hours and
thirty minutes. Both were confident of
winning. To appreciate the severity of
this test of endurance it must be remem
bered that there is no stop of any sort in
the performance for any purpose what
ever, trom y a. m. until 1 :oz a. m., a
stretch of sixteen hours and fifty-two
minutes, Miss Melville never left her
seat, and never once" stopped playing.
At 1 :52 yesterday morning she collapsed.
Her hands fell from the keys to her lap,
and she was too exhausted to raise them
She was utterly prostrated. The pro'
fessor himself, after the collapse of Miss
Melville, played on for eight minutes,
establishing the record of seventeen
hours. Miss Melville s right wrist is
swelled and stiff,' and the middle finger
of the right hand is swollen and aore.
The finger tips of both bands are numb
and blistered. The professor's thumbs
y twice their regular sizei,
patient was unconscious during the
evening hours, for she revealed some
signs of understanding when attempts
were made to relieve her last- moments
by partially opening her parched lips to
receive the stimulating fluid which was
applied to them from time to time, but
not a drop could she swallow, and the
power of . speech had left her frame for
ever. The funeral arrangements are as
follows : . Religious services will be held
at the White House Wednesday morn
ing, after which the remains will be
taken to Indianapolis, where the inter
ment will be made at Crown Mill ceme

GRANITE CREEK MINES.
Revival of Work Long Since Abandoned
Hydraulics and Flames tlie
Long Creek Eagle. Placer mining has
been very profitable at Granite creek
his season. J. J. Worcester has ceased
is season's labor on his mines, on which
he has been laboring since the early part
of the year, opening up an old tunnel
run by gold seekers in 1862, and long
since filled up with rock. The tunnel
leads through a fall in - the creek about
forty feet high, and is being converted
into an open cut, fof the purpose of put
ting in a flume. They have excavated
some 200 feet and there is yet eighty
feet to open. They expect to complete
the work and put in a flume in time to
take advantage of the water supply in
the spring. These were rich diggings in
the long ago. From eighty to one hun
dred thousand dollars were taken out
above the falls, and the work paid $80
to $100 a day to the man. With the fall
obtained by cutting away the tunnel the
present miners expect profitable returns,
as they can mine to great advantage.
The reason the old tunnel has not been
opened before is no one cared to tackle
the accumulation of rock, but the work
baa proven easier than anticipated.
Mat Kerwin, a practical miner, who is
in the employ of Sloan & Haskell, of the
Elk creek mines, called.to see us Mon
day. From Mr. Kerwin it is learned
that Sloan & Haskell is running a force
of four hands night and day, drifting out
that which would be impossible to work
with the hydraulic, owing to the hight
of the bank. They have driven one
tunnel in about 200 feet and another
about 150 feet, and are at present realiz
ing handsomely from the claim formerly
worked by O. P. Cresap, during the 60's.
In the meantime the derrick, etc., used
in working the placer mine, is being
moved to a point farther up Elk creek,
and put in readiness for operations in

The Fence of the Future.
There are a number of strong points in
avor of the Tuna Hedge as the fence of
he future, tbe advantage of this kind of
a fence may be briefly mumerated
follows : It becomes a perfect barrier
against all kinds of domestic animals
after three vears growth ; does not sap
or impoverish the ground, being a strict
ly atmospheric plant, and will not grow
from the seed or bv cuttine the roots
Wience will not spread, itrows only to a
certain uniform Height ana tneretore
ayes not require trimming, it has been
tuyroughly ana successtuny tested in
northern climates and does not kill out
in thV winter time, it serves the double
purpose of usefulness and ornamen-
tatiotrf as it is an evergreen and blooms
urine three months of the year, an in
vitation is extended to thoroughly test
its merits, and every one will be con
vinced that it possesses all the advant
ages claimed for it. - Messrs. Johnson &
Payne- are now taking orders for the
Tuna Hedge and have met with uniform
success. Any one wishing a living grow
ing fence something that will not spread
and will be a fence for all time to come
should give their orders now and get
their fence started this fall. :
