To-day it was learned that two mineral wells had I e.m lii'v yered, one. at a point near. La Presa and another al Oneonta. The La Pn sa well has been carefully examine.!, the water having Wen submitted to Prof. Hilgarti among others. Pro). Hiigard’s first and inforiual report is tliat the water contains a remarkable pro]X)rtion of iron,' the tincture being stronger, he says, th.an any water he ever, examined 'e?cepi that Í om the famous Iron springs pi Virginia. The water was discovered accidently. The coinpiHiy. sunk a well and passed througirseveral small veins of pure water, ^vhen at'^a deptii of T20' feet the mnieVal water was reacln d in great qpaniitiesSj It was resolv.'d at once to* make use of it, and a windmill and largo* tank have been erected and pipPa laid to carry it‘to Llie*grounds of the hotel.

It will also be piped for the benefit of the residents and visitors ot that section. ^ “How do yon*account for the find^ig of so masvy mineral wells in tl is of course, the old colony i.s pretty well set out.

Riverside is a small place coirpared with the territory that is being bronght into cultivalicn for oranges. In the region about San Bernardino, that is under the Bear Valley water, there is a great deal of very fine land, such as you will find about Mound Citv, Red- lands, Lugonia and o^her places.

A Pleus&ot Picture of the Iuner,^^Chjir-acter cud Life of the Great Ghieftaiii. i Philadelphia Tiuitrh. I In a recent interview Santee Charn-blifcs the former valet of Geji. Grant, defined hi.8'dutfes Ui have coloiisted in waiting exclusively upon the general, “I went to his bed chamber caily in the morning. I at once laid out the etothes Ihftt he should wear for the day. I invaribly placed out fresh linens, adjusted his set nf drainOnd or gold studs just as fancy struck me, l»oli.slud his shoes, poured out water lor his toilet and'waited for further order.8. The general left the selection of suit for the da>\entirely tiTmyloiirn taste.    ‘    J . “Mr-'. Grant on/y was fastidious in dress. There coullil hardly be found a finer wardrobe in.\he land than she nad. ,ller wearing Apparel was simply superb^ The generaTa wardrobe was very Cv,niplete also,^ but he never knew vvluit clothes he had, for his tastes were plain in. every respect. The materials were of the very best, but nothing fancy. He wore mostly dark clothes, always button shoe.s,a stand-up collar turned beck and never any other than a black tie. He never indicated to me the kiud of suit he would wear. I simply selected from a large varpdy accoiding to my own judgemenl, and he wore them.” Mr. Chanibliss went on further to say: “The vry fiist thing 1 would do.in Die moriiiiig was the taking of the morning papers to the boudoir, where I pla, ed them^on the table. Tliey generaRy were The Times, Herald, World and Tribune, but he got.papers from ailNíhé principal cities of the coiintry at mail tiihe. “1 would nextenter his bedchamber and often would find him lying in bed Huoking a cigar. He had á chair by ills led where he deposited the ashes. I greeted him with.‘good morning’ and he would return it with a kindly expression of face, but seldom* would -ay 'nioie than'now and then ask about the weather. If I were to ask him a questjoli' or two he would iiunswer them, that’s all. His words would lower the dummy to the kitchen the cook would knpw the course next in order. The dinner consumed one hour and & half in its completion. “The general was fíot a great eater.. For breakfast he cared mostly for” tenderloin of porterhouse steak, cup of ccflee and hot griddle cokes always" served with the meal—and the inevitable cigar. Breakfast consumed one-half hour, lie would pull out his watch*at the close, but never was in a hurry. '    ^ “The family were certainly most affectionate. WheiKthey were met to-getlier they were tne happiest people in the World. Mrs. Grant and the getieraL were ever addre.ssing each other with terms of greatest respect and tenderness, and frequently had studied surprises fur each ' other’s happiness. I think* Mrs. Grant was conscious of the general’s greatness, ^nd she had a right to appreciatejA. But the general always was plain. He never seemed to know that he had done anything in the world—but somewhere,-and by sbmeUiing, he had leaned to be great—for one had to feel that he was great*” More About Olives. Mr. Fred Smith has an olive orchard of fifteen acres near Pomona. Last year he picked thirty-eight gallons oif one tree and sold them for $38. Given* ^    -r sixty trees to the acre, the lowest number we have stated, here would be an income of $2280. This is of course an extraordinary yiekl, and one not at all like’y to ever be obtained from many trees in any orcbard; but it tends to show the possible incomo from olive culture. Suppose only one-fifth of this yield can be counted upon, and the ]»rofit is. still large enough to verify the saying^that an olive grove is a gold mine on earth. Several parties have bought Chino lands ‘ for olive culture. Generally speaking good orange land in this part of the Siate is good for olives. The land about Pomona is generally fine for-oranges, and there are a number of olive orcliards sandwichedjn with ora:ige ‘groves.—G/i./uo Champion. The oil fields discovered in the wcie few; Ire seldom    commanded,    .    '    .    ,    .    .    n .1 various    regions    of    California, more liut one could know by his one or two ’    , U ,1    •    ...a.,;/.» j particuliirly those    in    the bespe    region, meant,    and    you    be of vast    bentfit words wliat ¡was .ilways were Jnclined to carry cut his wislits. 1 always had to put on a^jd button his shoes, hold his coat, but he adjusted the collar and tic him.self. Ho look a bath twice a week. I knew Die time and always had. the water turned on for him. “The general,” he cont;nued,“always went irom his bed chamber straight to the boudoir. He went there with a cigar in his mouth. Ho scanned the papers hastily and smoked at least three eigais before breakfast call. He went down to breakfast with cigars in his pocket, and if he should happen to have forgotten the ¡dacing of any there, he would aUoiice at-k the butler to bring him some. With scarcely the hist morstd swallowed, the butler would be ready with lit match and the general wauld smoke. He at the Slime time huiidcd cig.irs over the table to his sons, who would join him in this delicious dessert.” “After breakfast the general would ufien walk to tho *el(r\ated station, Fifty-ninth street, and Sixth avenue, and go jjown.to his oftiee *in Wall street. Tlve carriage often stood ready to the state in those piTtions where wood and coal are scarce. Not.only may it be used for fiul for oidinary purposes, but experiments show it may generally be used. An experiment in burning brick Jby .means of waste petroleum has been successfully made near Chicago. The degree of heat was under complete and instant control, the kiln was burnetl in about une-third of the time required when using coal and one operator did the work usually requiring seven or eight. The new® process is e.\pooled to lessen the cost of burning brick fully 33^ per cent. . Tho boAintiful rainfall up to date, and the almost certainty of more, gives jwomisc for a good season to. come to those in the business of ^ beekeeping in Soutiiern California. The recept boom has carried several prom-nent bee-masters out of the business into relNl estate offices, and Ihcir a])iaries have fallen into inexperienced hands or will go to ruin. Out’ of some sixty persons largely in tho business in Los Angeles county ten years ago, buL4hree of that number hy the front door, but he frequeiiDv preferred Avalki.ig. He lock Jo„„. | are now in Ihe b.isinea., so that there town lunch at 1 o’clock, and came home to tiinner, which was served ut Op. ni. In llie afternoon, on his return from the office and before he en--tered the house, he went to the stables, ordered his favorite horse and look a drive in Die park. Upon eniciing the house his first, order was: 'Get me the evening paper.’ Mrs. Grant never fiiltd to greet him at Die head of the stairs most aflcctioneJlly. She called him'Ulysses ;’he called heUMrs. Grant.’ She always kissed him upon his departure from the house and. upon his return to it.” In speaking of the table habits bf the general and his family the valet, with,* a >*tar’8 experience as butler, went on to say: “They set a very fine table inde^l. They had the finest of tableware-'tuat could he found. ,Ii was ithvays Mrs. Grant's greatest desire to have good and long dinners. For this meal the eatables were all served in codrses. Tho cook and butler had each a Hat, and whenever Die butler is ample room for new bands to work in this neglected hut rich field.—Kz. Here is an Illinois' paper with a levelheaded. editor. The Danville ^ Commercial says: “AVantcd, to pur-(diase immcaditly, a large block of J California dii)nate<or, if pcrferred, wilL>^^ ex(diange Illinois climate, 24 ditfcrent vurietiel in 24 lionrs, giving a liberal margin in faVor of the.California climate.

The potatoes raised hero, are of excellent quality and find a r^ady sale in the surrounding towns. Mr. Cook has been making sales in Rivcrsdo at $1.75 per cwt.—Ontario EetorJ. L 1
