a species forming a heavy clump of leaves, the leaves bending over, hanging downward and forming a sort of mop resembling the head of hair of an old-time football player (1892). This species extends from Shasta Springs to Matheson sta., and perhaps lower down. It becomes more abundant as one goes down river from Shasta Springs, increasing as Saxifraga peltata decreases, and finally replacng that species entirely (cf. F.B. 52:58).

Some one else spoke of Baker at an evening gathering, Mrs. Anson Blake as I remember, and the same reaction occurred - only Mrs. Seward did the talking.
