Meeting of Land-Owners of Reclamatioo District No. 108. lip-mUluii to Construct a Wont Sule Canul fur the I'urpcise of UrMin- liig HIM DUtrlct. DUNSIGAN, February meeting of the latui-ownura of Reclamation Dis- trict No. 108, has been called for Kmishta Landing. Saturday, February the and there is no duubt but that there will be a large attendance. The purpose of the meeting is to de- vise some system of drainage by which a body of the best funning land in Yolo and Colusa counties ca i be re- claimed. The land is already protected from the overflow water of the river, but there are several creeks that run down from the hills anil empty into the basin, from which there is at present no outlet into the river. It is the disposition of this bill water that furnishes the vexing problem to the farmers, as there is not a drop of the river water in all the basin. All schemes to reclaim the land from the devastation of the hill water have to far proven unavailing. This body of land comprises about acrea of very productive soil. The latest scheme is to construct what will be called the West Side Canal. It is proposed to begin at a point north of Colusa and run southeasterly al >ng the border of the basin and along the north side of the ridge at Knights Landing. It is said that such a canal can be con- structed so that the water can be emptied into the Sacramento river above high water mark, and without in the least endangering the town of Knights Landing, or increasing the danger of the farming districts below the town. The land-owners have had prelimi- nary surveys made, as a result of which they are confident that the scheme is perfectly feasible. The purpose is to make it large enough to carry off the combined flow of all the creeks running into the basin from the foothills. The route of way would be through an alkali strip that borders the basin, and the use of b'lt very httlo land that is productive will be necessary. I under- stand there ib some opposition from a few farmers who do not want to give up this strip of alkali land. There are a few others who hesitate about endorsing the scheme on account of the great rost, but all agree that un- less the canal or some other practical scheme of reclamation be devised, all to take care of the tule water, all this valuable bojy of land will have to be abandoned for farming purposes. The cost of the canal is estimated at but I understand that two San Francisco banks, with practically un- limited capital, are so well satisfied that the scheme can be made a success, that they aie willing to furnish all the money with no other security than the land. This would mean a tax of about an acre, and experienced farmers say the land is so fertile that one good crop, which would follow reclamation, would clt-ar off the entire debt. There should and no doubt will be large attendance and a thorough discus- sion at the meeting. The land ought to be reclaimed if it can be done without inflicting injury on other sections of the county. If it can be successfully done many thousand acres of taxable property will be added to the tax rolls and the pro- ductive capacity of the county will be materially increased. III Doubt. The name of the successor of the lute Bishop MonJBtie is not yet known by anybody in the Sacramento diocese. It was reported on Monday that Father O'Connor, of StocAton, has been ap- pointed, but the report is not credited. Archbishop Riord in mid the Paulist Fathers at the old St. Mary's cathedral say they have no knowledge of any such appointment. The clergy generally hold to the opinion that no appoint- ment has betMi made yet, and when the Pope nominates the bishop that his ap- pointment will come through Arch- bishop Kiordan. A Vft-r.r.cint Curioiily. The Rutland division of CenMal Vermont crosses tho >i.- at Mount Holly, Summit Station feet above .-pa level. Near rl.ut station, when the lailroad was building, the tusks of a largo American elephant were dug np. These are considered the greatest curiosities over found iu Ver- mont aucl are today, or wore very re- cently, preserved in the capital building. In the same collection of wonders may be seen the skeleton of au immense prehistoric whale which was found iu the town of Charlotte iu 1879 while some excavations were being made. The skeleton is that of n whalo at least 150 feet in length. The place where it was found is exactly 150 feet above the present level of the change. Found Fault With Hamlet. There is an old, a very old, tale told of a venerable lady, who, after seeing the play of "Hamlet" for the first time, said, "It is a very good play, as plays go, bnt it is made up of quotations." This good dame, although she was probably unaware of it, was ackuowl- j edging, in a roundabout way perhaps, the indebtedness of our language to our national bard; phrases, sentences and sometimes whole lines from his writ- ings have been crystallized, as it were, into colloquial English, and there are probably more quotations drawn from the works of Shakespeare than from those of any other author, ancient or Journal. THE BEST SPRING MEDICINE is SIMMONS LIVER forget to take it. The Liver gets sluggish during the Winter, just like all nature, and the system becomes choked up by the accumulated waste, which brings on Malaria, Fever and Ague and Rheuma- tism. You want to wake up your Liver now, but be sure you take SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR to do it. it also regulates the it properly at work, when your system will be free from poison and the whole body invigorated. You get THE BJEST BLOOD when your system is in Al condition, and that will only be when the Liver is kept active. Try a Liver Remedy once and note the 1 difference. But take only SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR is SIMMONS i LIVER REGULATOR which makes the I difference. Take it in powder or in liquid already prepared, or make a. tea of the powder; but take LIVER REGU- I LATOR. You'll find the RED 2 on every I package. Look for it. J. H.
