The End of the World a Good
Many Years Off.
It Will Be About the Year Four
A Chinese Boy Dies While Crossing
He Was With a Party That Was Smuggled
Into the United States From Lower
The recent talk about the end of the
world in Oakland and San Francisco has
brought to the front a number of scien
tists who have theories on the sub
ject and they are apparently en
gaged in theories of their own which
they intend to make public when the
time comes. Yesterday a Herald re
porter met a French gentleman named
Pierre Durand, who is here on a visit
from his present home in San Bafael,
who said he had received a letter from
a scientist in France to the effect that
the end of the world will come for hu
manity in the year 4000. This date had
been decided upon by calculation.
The recorded facts extend over nearly
three centuries. It is found that in 1510
the average height of men in Europe was
1.75 meters, or say 5 feet 9 inches. In
1790 it was 5 feet 5 inches. In 1820 it
was 5 feet 5 inches and a fraction. At
the present time it is 5 feet 3% inches.
It is easy to deduce from these figures a
rate of regular and gradual decline in
human stature, and then to apply this,
working backward and forward, to the
past and to the future.
By this calculation it is determined
that the stature of the first man attained
the surprising average of 16 feet9inches.
Truly there were giants on the earth in
those days. The race had already de
teriorated in the days of Og, and Goliath
was quite a degenerate offspring of the
giants. Coming down to the later times
we find that at the beginning of our era
the average height of man was 9 feet,
and in the time of Charlemagne it was
8 feet 8 inches, a fact quite sufficient to
account for the heroic deeds of the pala- |
But the most astonishing result of this
scientific study comes from the applica
tion of the same inexorable law of di
minution to the future. The calcula
tion shows that by the year 4000 A. D.
the stature of the average man will be
reduced to 15 inches. At that epoch
there will be only Lilliputians on the
earth. And the conclusion of the learned
statistician is irresistable, that "the end
of the world will certainly arrive, for the
inhabitants will have become so small
that thej r will finally disappear"—"finish
by disappearing," as the French idiom
expresses it—"from the terrestrial
DIED IN THE DESERT.
The Fate of a Chinese Boy Who Tried
• to Cross.
A little mound of sand, a stick of bam
boo with a fluttering rag tied to it,marks
the desert grave of Ah Sing, as well as a
little tragedy in the workings of the
Chinese Exclusion act. Some time ago
about a hundred Chinamen were landed
at Ensenada, Lower California, intend
ing to cross the Mexican line into Cali
fornia. They divided into three parties,
one of which attempted to enter San
Diego by sea. These were captured, and
on Thursday were brought to the county
jail by Detective A. W. Marsh. Another
party went overland to Tia Juana, where
on Friday evening they were captured
while attempting to cross the bor
der. The third party made the ac
quaintance at Ensenada of an American,
a "desert man" who advised them to
partly cross the peninsula and come into
the United States in the neighborhood
of Campo, ciossing the Colorado desert
to the East of San Diego. He offered
for a consideration to guide them, and
the party started; they were two weeks
covering the distance between Ensen
ada and Temecula, all the time being on
short rations of water, as the "desert
man" proved to be very ignorant of the
location of the wells along the route.
For two entire days the wretched
coolies toiled across the blistering sands
without any water at all. Among
the party was a boy of only 14,
who, attracted by the stories of
easily gained wealth had determined to
come to this country. The heat and ex
ertion of the long marches sapped the
child's strength, and these two days of
suffering caused his death. He became
delirious and ran wildly about, trying to
drink the glittering sand; his tongue
swelled so that it protruded from his
parched mouth, and at last he fell ex
hausted, and died. His companions
covered him as best they could with
sand, and marked the grave with a rod
and a rag. This week a party of Chi
nese will go out after his bones, and
send them back to his relatives in
Detective Marsh gathered these facts
from Chinese of reliability in this city.
He has tried to capture those of tne
party who reached here, but though he
is convinced that he knows who some of
them are, owing to the impossibility of
identifying them no arrests can be
A Few Errors Noticed Recently in
Newspaper error, unlike history, never
repeats itself. It always springs up in
some new and totally unexpected place,
and comes with a shock of surprise and
as a revelation of new possibilities in
the line of type freaks. The newspaper
man is continually guarding against an
error of any kind, but there are occa
sions when the types get mixed in spite
of his watchfulness, and often the result
of the mixture makes time pass uneasily
for the author of the article, the editor
of the paper and the proof-reader.
Not long since the following personal
was written for a paper in Los Angeles:
"Mrs. Spring, of Minneapolis, ia occupy
ing a room at the hotel."
The next morning Mrs. Spring was
considerably alarmed when she read in
the paper: "Mrs. Spring and Mr. Na
polionis occupy a room at the
hotel." The editor had a hard time ex
plaining how it happened that after
A queer account of a lecture delivered
by a prominent speaker on scientific
subjects appeared not long since in one
of tne dailies.. The interesting portion
was as follows:
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 28, 1890.
' 'The professor touched upon the at
tractive power of the sun and its rela
tions to the planets, and then darted off
into space after the comets and the
female captain of the Salvation Army,
who appeared in all her war toggery.
She was placed under bonds to keep the
peace, and her pursuer held to await
trial on a charge of battery and dis
Two galleys of type were mixed in
making up the paper, and this caused
the trouble that occurred between the
editor and the foreman.
The simple omission of a letter some
times gives an unsought mean
ing to a • sentence. For instance:
A somewhat florid writer in
writing about a lawyer who had been
arrested and thrown into prison, said:
"He was held in duress so vile that he
besought the turnkey to send for his
bail." The sentence appeared: "He
was held in dress so vile that he besought
the turkey to send for his mail."
The substitution of one letter for an
other often makes a sentence ridiculous.
"She was married in haste, as her hus
band desired to take the next train for
the East, and there was no time to
spare," was written for a weekly paper
a short time since. It appeared: "She
was married in paste, as her husband
desired to take the next train for the
East, and there was no time to spare."
A dramatic critic, in noticing a play
not long since, in San Francisco, intro
duced the line, "He called off his co
horts," which he said had not been ren
dered properly. It appeared in type the
next day, "He called off his corsets."
"What did he mean?" in the same arti
cle, was transposed into, "Wasn't he
These are only a few instances that
have been noticed of late, but they go to
show that even with the greatest of care
errors will persist in creeping into the

Mrs. P. J. Cressey and her very large

yesterday, of entering into the enjoy

their comfort, at the First Baptist Sun
day school. This new room is about
30x40 feet in size, has stained glass
windows, and is furnished with every
convenience and comfort, having an
organ and little chairs, bright carpet,
charts and mottoes, all at a cost of some
$400. At Dcs Moines Mrs. Cressey did
good work as a primary Sunday school
teacher, and since coming to Los An
geles has added greatly to her well
earned reputation in that direction. No
one could well have better success in in
teresting the restless little ones and
making them anxious to come again.
MR. HEINTZ'S REPLY.
He Answers Mr. Cass as to Bugs
and Sprays—He Prefers Gas.
Editors Herald —"A short horse is
soon curried." I see by yesterday's
Herald that F. O. Cass, who has been
posing as an entomologist, and claiming
to possess a half dozen different para
sites for different scales, is somewhat
"riled" at the conclusions arrived at by
the members of the Board of Supervis
ors and the experts accompanying them,
concerning his pet hobby and his pet
bugs. Not content with the four or five
investigations condemning his preda-
I cious insect as not being capable of hold-
I ing the red scale in check, he still cries,
like the boodle alderman far more. To
gratify the whims of this man the Board
of Supervisors concluded to visit the
orchard in person, and asked that Prof.
Coquillette, Alexander Craw and C. M.
Heintz accompany them. The result of
their investigations has already been
published. The concensus of opin
ion was that the parasite was
an unknown quantity — indeed,
some called it in plain English a fraud
and a humbug. The difference in orch
ards where the red scale had been kept
in check by artificial means, and where
it was left to the work of the parasite
was so striking that it was the universal
testimony of all present that until a
parasite was discovered that was capable
of holding the red scale in check, it was
imperative to eradicate the scale by
some other means. Touching the other
parasites for black scale, the San Jose
scale, the twice-stabbed lady bug, and
the lace-winged fly Mr. Cass's learned
discourse makes good reading and may
lead some to believe they are doing suffi
cient to make the use of other means
unnecessary ; but such is not the case, as
is amply evidenced by the much better
appearance of orchards that are sprayed
or "gassed" over those that are left to
nature's sweet will.
When our critic conies to personal
matters, we feel like exclaiming with
Congreve, "Ferdinand Mendez Pinto was
but a type of thee, thou liar of the
first magnitude." The report of the
trip made to the Cass orchard, and the
results thereof are substantially correct.
When Mr. Cass says the whole investiga
tion was "worked" in the interests of
spray men, he talks wild, and seems to
intimate that every man who disagrees
with him has either a wash to sell or
wants a job spraying. I have never ad
vocated spraying, believing that the new
hydrocyanic gas when properly applied
the best means for killing insect pests.
Touching Mr. Cass's visit to my office,
his particular mission seemed to be to
get my influence to have the personnel of
the Horticultural Commission changed,
and a new inspector appointed in his
district. We never talked sprays, but I
told him then and there that I had no
faith in his parasite being able to hold
the pests in check. All this trouble
about "threats," "do me (him) up,"
"make it hot for me" (him), ad nauseam
is simply drivel and built out of whole
cloth. His reference to my saying the
San Jose scale and the red "scale are
alike is so insipid and silly that I "pass
it by as the idle wind which I respect
F. O. Cass and his parasite to hold red
scale under control have now been be
fore the public for some months. It has
been investigated by practical fruit
growers, by the Horticultural Commis
sion, the State Board of Horticulture,
the representative of the United States
Department of Agriculture (Division of
Entomology), the County Board of Su
pervisors, accompanied by a number of
people of much experience in lighting
insect pests, and in each and every in
stance his "bug" has been found in
capable of holding the scale in check,
and in every instance Mr. Cass has
thrown up his hands and shouted,"spray
men," to his critics. Like the guilty
wretch who is trying to escape from
justice and imagines every bush a man,
so this bug-crazy individual imagines
every bush a spray-pump. Isn't it
about time to take this man in out of
the wet? C. M. Heintz.
