The Devastation Caused by Them on
Batter Creek Described.
"It was simply heartrending. You
never saw such a desolate scene."
Mr. A. Cole, who ranches on Butter
creek, was not speaking of some accident
when he made this remark. Grasshop
pers, the humble yet destructive grass
hoppers, were the subject of his con
versation. He says that no idea can be formed 'by
one unfamiliar with the facts, of the de
struction wrought by these winded ter
rors on Uutter creek. They took every
green thing, leaving the ranchmen with
out a patch of grass or a pound of bay
to feed their stock. They came in clouds
that obscured the eunaud left ruin, dis
may and blight.
Mr. Cole succeeded in Baying about
one-fourth his crop of wheat and barley
hay, but had to fight for it. He is more
fortunate than most of his fellow-ranchers,
for he has part of preceding crops
left over. He has been offered good
prices for his hay, but will be compelled
to keep part of it to feed his own stock.
Both the Vey brothers, extensive
eheepraisers, are heavy losers. They
raise alfalfa hay on irrigated land, and
would have cut splendid ciopa bad not
the hoppers settled upon the alfalfa and
devoured e ery leat and blade. Of
course the Veys will not be crippled, for
each turned off many thousand dollars
worth of wool this season ; but the loss
of thfir feed supply is a serious draw
back. Antone Vey will be compelled to
secure elsewhere about 500 tons of hay
which he would have raised himself had
the grasshoppers not molested him, and
Joseph is in about the same predica
ment. S. G. Lightfoot, another prominent
rancher on the creek, hasn't a thing in
the way of produce left on the place,
the hoppers having destroyed a fine
prospect. Below Heppner similar havoc
was wrought. Andrew Donglas has de
serted that section and gone to Athena.
Mr. Cole Bays that the pests seemed
-almost endowed with thought, and to
claim everything as their own. When
saving part of his hay crop he literally
bad to "scrap" his way through armies
of them from the field to his barn.
You naturally lose flesh in
the summer and running down
is so asy. You get a little
weaker each day without hard
ly noticing it. There is loss of
appetite, headache, weakness
of the muscles, disturbed sleep,
weakness of memory, and these
are the beginning of nervous
prostration. Iron and tonics
and bitters may afford some
temporary relief, but what you
need is a food for body, brain
of Cod-liver Oil with the Hy
pophosphites, furnishes just the
nourishment needed for those
who are run down and pale and
"thin and weak. If you lose flesh
in summer take Scott's Emul
sion now. Don't wait till fall
or winter before beginning.

BICYCLE VOICE NOW.
Enemlea of "Wheel! na; Say at Affects
the Vors! Chords.
All the talk of the bicycle face having
practically died out, the foes of the
wheel have now trotted out another
scarecrow, claiming that as a rc?:;lt of
wheeling' women are beccmiv y loud
talkers, with an unpleasant quality of
voice. They assert that wheeling-, es
pecially with the mouth open, has a
detrimental effect on. the vocal chords,
and when to this is added the strain to
yliich the voice is subjected in an effort
to keep up a conversation while cy
cling1 the danger seems something more
than a shadow. Some persons who
have made voice culture a life study
are inclined to fall in with these views,
asserting that exercise on the wheel is
responsible for an apparent alteration
in the voices of women. One vocal
"While bicycle riding people fre
quently fill their lungs with dust, and
this is, of course, injurious. Then the
exercise leaves the system exhausted
and unable to resist the bad effects ot
excessive perspiration. A severe cold
is detrimental to the speaking voice,
and when these colds are frequent, as
they are with bicyclists, they will up
timately result in permanent injury.
If women would ride bxit a few miles
at a time and would keep their mouths
closed there would be no danger, but
I find that many of my pupils cannot
refrain from overdoing the sport. Pro
fessional women realize the harm that
bicycling does to their voices, but they
say that they cannot bear to give up
wheeling. Calling to one another as
wheelwomen frequently do cannot help
but strain the voice if persisted in."
Another vocal instructor holds total
ly opposite views. Said she: "1 am
strongly in favor of cycling for wom
en. It is a most healthful exercise, and
so cannot fail to be beneficial to the
singing and speaking voice. I do not
believe the old-fashioned theory of
things affecting the vocal chords direct
ly. Of course it is possible to strain
the voice, but I should think this most
unlikely when wheeling. The very tend
ency of the wheel is to keep the rider
quiet. If riders should call from one
to the other when outdoors their speak
ing voice might be affected, but the
most strident speakers are often the
sweetest singers. The soft, well-modulated
voice of the English girl does
not give us as many brilliant examples
of the song bird as the less pleasant,
and somewhat nasal tones of the Amer
ican. JJine out of every ten successful
singers abroad to-day are Americans.
This is because the other girls are never
allowed to expand their lungs with the
same .delightful freedom. A good di
gestion is the first requisite toward
good singing. I should say poor cooks
ha-s more to do with spoiling the voice
thi.-n all the wheels in Christendom. A
theory has been advanced that the rapid
breathing necessary when, riding the
wheel is injurious. This is wrong, as
the vocal chords are completely pro
tected when not in use." Philadelphia
Some of the Points of Singularity
About -the Pish.
The sturgeon is naturally an inhabi
tant of the large Vivers and brackish
water of theaiorth temperate zone, more
particularly of Europe and America.
The Saeramento, the San Joaquin, Rus
sian river and the Columbia on the west
and the Hudson and Delaware on, the
east are very favorable to its produc
tion in great quantities.
The importance of the fishery to San
Francisco is shown by the amount
brought into the market, in the first
three months of last year, being 79,
This interesting and curious fish ha
man' points of singularity. Its armed
exterior skeleton seems to point to its
being one of the few descendants of the
ganoid' or armor-plated fishes of the pre
historic ages. The position of the
mouth is much the same as in the shark
family, but its form and function is
rather that of the remora. or sucker
family. The flesh, too, is remarkable
as being a reddish and yellow and part
white. English fishmongers call it
"beef and veal." In tiat country it
is usually cooked by baking with a
stuffing of fine herbs.
There are several varifties of the
sturgeon family, the sturgeon proper
(accipenser sturio), the beluga and the
sterlet being the principal, the two lat
ter kinds belonging to the Russian
Some 25 years ago there were mil
lions of sturgeons in San Francisco bay
and tributary waters, principally in the
mouths of the Sacramento and-San Joa
quin rivers, where they lay on the mud
dy bottom feeding on clams and bottom
fishes. The Chinese, who have an in
ordinate fondness for gelaitinous sub
stances, such as isinglass, seawallow
nests, trepang, etc.. . imported' from
China a very deadly hook for capturing
the sturgeon, which they caught solely
for 'the marrow in its peculiar back
bone. They stripped out the backbone
and threw away the rest. Some of the
backbones were sent to China, where
isinglass is made from them and also a
highly tenacious glue. The principal
use, however, is for making gelatinous
soup. San Francisco Chronicle.
