Gossip From the Town of
Good Crops of Grain Now Being
How Many of the Farmers Are
Threshing' Their Wheat.
Notes and Personals Gathered at Santa
Monica—Other Items of Interest
From the Sea Side.
■Correspondence of the Herald.l
The grain fields have ripened, and are
teeming with tlie bright yellow hue that
gladdens the heart of the settler. On all
sides can be heard the hum of machinery
and the cheerful voice of the ranchman,
while tiie busy housewife can be seen
tending to her flocks of poultry and do
mestic affairs. In fact, this part of the
valley at the present time has the ap
pearance of a regular hive of industry.
There is a great dearth of farming im
plements among the settlers. As stated
some time since, the end of the long law
suit found most of the settlers financially
embarrassed, the Los Angeles lawyers
having scooped up most of the surplus
cash among them. There are mowing
machines, hay-presses, rakes, plows,etc.,
among the settlers, but there is not a
threshing-machine on the grant, nor can
any be found to thresh the present grain
crop. The settlers are determined to
have a threshing-machine for next sea-
son. Quite a number have resorted to
the old-time method of threshing wheat
with flails. Mr. Wilson threshed with
flails the iirst load of wheat which he
sold in the Los Angeles market. He
received a fair price for his grain, but he
thought that the primitive method of
threshing grain is too slow in this age of
telegraphs and telephones, so he sold
his crop of growing grain to Mr. Frank
Mr. Grannis is tramping the wheat
out with his horses. Hand fan-mills
are used for separating the chaff from
the grain. Two men can flail out,
clean and sack from eight to ten bushels
Mr. Gates is tunneling in a hill on
Mr. Franklin's place for water. He has
contracted to develop a large vein of
water, for which he is to receive $500,
and if he fails in getting the water then
he is not to get anything for his labor.
We have not much faith in this great
enterprise, but as Mr. Gates is a man of
perseverance and possessed with an in
domitable will, there is no telling what
he may find in that hill.
Mr. FYazier has sold his claim for
$700; also Chas. Kranter has sold his
ranch for .$250. Claims containing one
quarter section are selling from $200 to
$1,000. Those who are selling out are
persons who have no means of w ; orking
a claim. When we were la wing the
grant company for this land we lo
cated the tramp with his blankets on
his back, as well as tlie man of means,
because we wished to make a strong
.fight, as the company was using violence
towards the settlers. It is astonishing
to see quarter sections selling at such
low prices. Ranches that will grow
$1,000 worth of grain or $1,000 worth of
cattle per annum are being sold at $200
to $300 each.
Mr. Fletcher lias sold his fine young
horse Tom to Mr. Kutzner. This ani
mal is said to have a wonderful road
record, and Mr. Kutzner is going to train
him on the Calabasas track as soon as
he can get a suitable driving rig; and if
the animal develops speed enough he
will be entered in tlie fall races as a com
By the way, Mr. Kutzner is getting
his name up as a horse jockey. He has
a knack oi taking old lame horses and
superannuated beasts and giving them
a much longer lease of service. His
method of treatment is as follows : He
first ties the animal in a hole of water
up to his belly and soaks all the lame
ness and stiffness out. Then lie takes
the animal out and gives it a thorough
rubbing with electric pads and brushes,
and winds up with a free application ot
chemicals. He then hitches up the re
cuperated beast, and the animal, feeling
all the vitality and activity of youth
suddenly returned, becomes a veritable
"'high flyer," and Mr. Kutzner, when
driving one of these animals, generally
throws the dust in the face of everything
that he overtakes on the road.
We think that it would be a regular
godsend if every grant in this county
was thrown open for settlement, as the
Las Virgines land grant has been opened
for actual settlers. Here a few years
ago monopolists held full sway on hill
and valley, grazing their gigantic herds
on land that they never had any title
to. Now what a contrast! Monopoly
gone ; families on each quarter section ;
,i daily mail established; two new
school houses built, one costing $2,000;
two dry goods and grocery stores ; re
ligious services each Sabbath, and every
thing in a thriving and prosperous con
dition. Well, the settlers of Calabasas
have come to stay, and they are an en
ergetic and progressive class of people.

The Long Beach Chatauqua circle
closed a very successful season last night
by a large and appreciative attendance,
the subject for discussion being "Will
Carleton." There has been much inter
est manifested in the circle by its mem
bers during the last year, so much so,
that they overran the regular time of
closing by one month. Tlie Long
Beach circle is the largest in
Southern California, very many
of its members residing in several
different counties; but as Long Beach
is the recognized headquarters, they an
nually meet here with some of the best
speakers and lecturers in the country.
The coming meeting, beginning July
loth, and lasting until the 25th will,
without doubt, be the most successful
ever held here. Nemo.

THE WEYSE CASE.
The Trial Commenced Before Judge
The case of Mrs. Louise AVeyse against
Otto G. Weyse to obtain a divorce is on
trial before Judge Wade. The com
plaint, which was read in court yester
day, charges that the defendant was
guilty of cruelty toward tlie plaintiff
and her children on various occasions.
It is alleged that at one time he man
aged to get her into a room, and, after
locking the door, demanded that she
attach her name to a certain mortgage
by which he could raise several thou
sand dollars, and upon her refusing he
struck her with his clenched list in the
face several times. At another time it
is alleged that he thrashed his two little
children with a horse-whip until their
limbs were covered with black and blue
ridges; also that he told her upon
one occasion, in the presence of other
parties, that he wished Iter dead, and
that it would be his greatest pleasure to
lead her children up to her coffin and
have them understand that she was
dead. At other times he accused her of
infidelity and applied a vile epithet, and
he refused her upon several occa
sions sufficient money to procure the
actual necessities of life. The particu
lars of the abduction of the child of the
plaintiff were also given. The taking of
testimony will commence today.

had lost her sheep and couldn't tell where
to And them." So the old nursery rhyme
says, and it (roes on to bid her " Leave them
alone and they'll come home nnd bring their
tails behind them." All this may be true of
lost sheep, but if you have lost your health
you cannot afford to leave that alone. It
will not come back of its own accord. Somo
people brag that they never bother about
colds. They "let them go the way they
