-Leptotaenia Californica, roots eaten by Klamath Indians who call it "wild sage"-Jimmie Davis.
Pendant oak balls on leaves of Quercus chrysolepis vaccinifolia eaten by Indian boys who call them ____ and esteem them highly. Jimmie Davis says they also grow on tree form.
-Saxifraga peltata. Indians eat the petioles, stripping down the bark. Best when young. I tried it and found it very pleasant. They eat Leptotaenia Californica in same way. Jimmie Davis says he likes this better than Saxifraga, "Why, I could live on this."
-Acer glabrum, abundant at and near divide of Siskiyous, Happy Camp Trail. It is abundant throughout range of the Siskiyous evidently as I saw it in great plenty on the Kelsey Trail. Nowhere else so abundant in California.

-On the Happy Camp trail from Waldo, going towards Happy Camp, above Happy Camp we ran into a hailstorm-the hail stones as big as quail eggs. Our mules at once took shelter under Incense Cedar trees, like Indians! for it is said lightning never strikes Libocedrus decurrens.
cont. from p. 141. At Montague, by prearrangement I met Alden Sampson, club man of New York City; we traveled together to Etna Mills securing our seats on the box (see p. 141 ante) by engaging them in advance. It took two days at Etna Mills to round up everything, repair saddles, get the pack saddles together, secure the horses and so on. (see p. 140a ante.).
