Miller of Woodland, for the past week. He came by way of Seattle and Portland. It is interesting to know he was very favorably impressed with Sacramento valley and especially the Woodland I lW-oodland high school in honor of vicinity. He says this valley looks better to him than any country since he struck the Rocky mountains. He left yesterday on his return trip by way of San Francisco and Los An- Esparto to Have Fire Department ia'bly around 45 cents. I Mrs. Aram claims that the product jgmwn in Yolo county is a fair sam- ple of Turkish tobacco, better than I Fresno, but not as good as San Diego, but ranks about the same grade as Virginia leaf and inferior to the real Turkish product. Virginia leaf is nimied at PO cents in New York. She thinks the Yolo product would meet a mere ready sale if sold under this class. I iShe also made a proposition that the whole crop be shipped to New York, the local banks holdine: title in trust. __o_ _____ __ ___ to her and-she would sell it on a Miss Vera Drever, cent commission.

Stranne to say. there is little bemoaning the rout of booze. A few lament his loss, some are prepared to pay tribute to his ashes with an occasional sup, while the vast majority will re- call in pleasant reminiscences perhaps a single day when his first alluring touch brought a flush to the cheek, a tingle to the blood, alacrity to the step and volubility to the tongue.
