era. Then tho eager and alert eyo of tho
calculating rancher sought out tho min-
ers as ho descended from tho heights of
tho Sierras and his hand was extended
in welcome whllo tho man of nuggets
and "chlspas" was still afar off.
In thoso days of old and days of gold
Roddy and Andrews (Tom Andrews a
man known to all the old timo Pacific
coast sports) found immensely rich
diggings at Forest City Sierra county.
They frequently cleaned up from $20000
to $30000 at ono timo. When a clean

In making theso trips they generally
took turns. It was beforo tho days of

sociable happy times of tho steamer

It was tho regular habit of tho partners
on getting oil tho rolling thumping
mountain coach to stay all night at
Sacramento taking tho boat tho next
afternoon for San Francisco. When it
was tho turn of Androws to go down to
tho bay with tho dust ho frequently did
battlo with tho "tiger" whllo lying over
at Sacramento but Roddy's strong suit
was poker. Thrco aces was his big
hand. When ho held three aces ho would
bet his "bottom dollar and go his liver
and lights blind." This was eo well
known that it had passed Into n proverb
among tho Sacramento sports. On one
occasion when Roddy had been playing
all night with 6omo Sacramento men
and quit $8000 ahead of tho game it
was concluded to follow him un. In

McCartv tho man who was bcaton so
cruelly weeks ago it is charged by two
negro women whilo a negro man named
Charlie Williams held him down died
at 8 o'clock this morning after a peri-
od of gicat suffering. IIo was a rail-
road laborer nnd had just 'rccoived a
month's wages and was locked up on
a chargo of intoxication In tho jail
wcro Lmma Logan Emma Harrcll and
Charlio Williams all colored who wcro
charged with disturbing tho peace.
Williams has frequently lieurod in tho
courts. About six months ago ho is
said to havo shot his wife and recent-
ly ho was accused of having carved
another negro with a pocket knife". '
When MoCarty was lodged in jail tho
women wero in a bad humor and they
soon managed to pick a quarrel with
him it is alleged and when Williams
hold him down as charged they it is
said beat his head into a jelly with
empty whisky bottles. Tho trio wcro
at once removed to tho county prison
and held without bail to await tho re-
sult of McCarty's injuries a physician
having pronounced them probably fatal.

says tho finanoial aflairs of Plymouth
church aro just now in a critical condi-
tion and' tli ore are indications that
there may bo great difficulty in meet-
ing curent expenses of the socioty and

strongly brought out at tho annual
mooting last evening. Tho receipts
during tho past year havo boon only
a littlo over 20000 and tho exj endi-
tures have exceeded that amount by
$2000. In concluding a long article
on tho condition of Mr. Bcceher'a old

started. In tho gamo wero Roddy Fos-

ern counties; Charlio Dawson and two
other sports. A job had been put up to
ralso a cold deck and givo Roddy his fa-
vorite hand of threo aces. Tho gamo pro-
ceeded and at the proper timo Dun son
raised tho deck. Tho cards wcro dealt
and Roddy got Ids thrco aces Dawson
