ROOT OR McGINTY?
A Message From the Deep
Is There a Man Lost on San
Or is it a Ruthless Practical
Henry Root Lost in a Squall—Sends a
Massage Which Lands at Rattle
When a message placed in a bottle is
found on a seabeach the first thought of
the finder is that he has become the vic
tim of a first class hoax, and that it
■will be impossible for him to punch the
head of the fellow who has taken ihim
in. True, the practical joker will
not have the pleasure of seeing the
rage of the man who uncorks the bottle
and reads tha heartrending message
from the sea, and there is consolrition in
that point for the finder. But, on sec
ond thought, the discoverer of the bot
tled paper is very apt to believe that
there may be truth in the matter, and
then his sympathy is bound to be
awakened for the miserable being or
beings beyond relief, whose sufferings he
can well imagine, and whose horrible
death depicts itself vividly before his
Now, such a message from the waves
was found yesterday on the beach of
Rattlesnake island, near San Pedro, and
if it is not a hoax the unfortunate fel
low who wrote it is very apt to have
Buffered the fate of the poor old man
whose dead body was discovered there
about a month ago, ami buried by a
party of his friends.
Mrs. Sparr, a lady of "this city, while
walking on the beach of Rattlesnake
island, saw a bottle bobbing in the
wavelets near the shore, and, her curi
osity being excited, she drew it on the
Band. It contained a sheet of paper.
She conveyed the bottle to the office of
Mr. Crane, agent of the Southern Pa
cific at San Pedro, who opened it.
The following message was withdrawn
from the bottle and is now in the cus
tody of the agent:
San Clemente, June 29, 1800.
Am lost on the rocks off Clemente
island in a squall; have small Hope of
getting off. The finder of this please
send to Seymour Root, Cottage Grove,
Minn. Henry Root.
The message in itself looks terribly
earnest, and there is hardly anything in
it to lead to the belief that some person
with little with but much bad taste has
perpetrated an abominable joke for
the purpose of causing a sensation.
There seems to be no knowledge that
euch a man as Henry Root had been
staying at San Pedro, but that, of course,
means nothing. He might nevertheless
have been staying there, or he might
have sailed from Oceanside or San
One point which will easily settle the
matter with'the sea-faring population of
San Pedro is whether it was possible for
a bottle thrown into the water at San
Clemente to drift into the harbor near
San Pedro in five days. The people
down there are familiar with the cur
rents on the coast, and if there is any
likelihood of there being truth in the
message taken from that bottle, a rescue
party will be organized and a Bearch
made for Mr. Root, for he must be very
A PIONEER GONE.
Death of an Old and Distinguished
Captain George J. Clarke, one of our
oldest residents, passed away at 10
o'clock Saturday night. He had been in
ill-health for some time, and towards
the end his sight became poorer and
poorer, until finally it left him alto
gether- Captain Clarke was born in
Northwood, New Hampshire, in 1817, so
that he was in his seventy-third year at
the time of his death. In early life he
engaged in mercantile business, and
went to New South Wales. There he
remained until he heard of the gold dis
coveries in California,whenhe sailed for
San Francisco, arriving there in 1850.
After the usual experiences of pioneers
he came to Los Angeles in 1861. and has
lived here ever since.
When he first came to Los Angeles he
explored and opened up mining dis
tricts between this city and Inyo. He
discovered Awnagossa district and lo
cated a series of mines in that direction.
He was at the head of the Yarbrough
Company, which had an office in San
Francisco. Mills were erected, and the
prospects were very encouraging, when
suddenly an Indian outbreak took place
that extended clear into Nevada. The
mills and houses were burned, and num
bers of whites were ruthlessly slaugh
tered. This was the last great rising of
the aboriginies on this coast.
From 1870 to 1373 he was postmaster
of this city, and acquitted himself of his
duties with credit to himself and to the
satisfaction of the community. Subse
quently he was appointed notary pub
lic, and for the last few years of his life
hia notarial duties absorbed his entire
attention. Captain Clarke was agentle
inan of the strictest integrity and the
highest character. He was a man
whose good influences were widely felt,
and in his sphere and amongst his
neighbors he was esteemed and re
spected for his many excellent and
sterling qualities. He was a true friend,
an exemplary citizen, a kind and de
voted husband and one of those lives
that make the world the better because
they have been lived. He passes away
regretted by all who knew him, and
creating a void in the immediate circle
in which he moved that cannot be
filled. Our sympathies go out to his
aged widow and family.
His funeral will take place at 10 a. m.
tomorrow, from his late residence, 2,118
South Main street.
HE CHEWED POISON OAK,
And Now Swears He Will Have
W. J. Timms, who lives on Pennsyl
vania avenue, Boyle Heights, recently
acted on the medical principle of
the hair of the dog being good for its
bite. He was camping in the San Ga
briel canon, and was fearful of being
affected by poison oak, to which he is
susceptible. An experienced mount
aineer, hearing him talk about the mat
ter, told him to take some of the leaves
of the plant and chew them, swallowing
the saliva resulting. This would surely
prevent him from being affected. Mr.
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 4, 1890.
Timtns, who is a non-suspecting man,
followed the advice, and now is hunting
for the man who gave it to him. He
has been in bed for ten days, and for
three days his doctor despaired of his
recovery. Almost the entire interior of
his body was poisoned. His throat,
stomach and intestines were affected ex
actly as is the outside skin by the
poison, and not only was this the
case, but externally from crown to toe
he was poisoned." He could not see,
swallow or hear. The slight movement
resulting from breathing produced the
most exquisite agony. Anyone who
has been slightly affected by the plant,
can imagine what it would be to have
the entire interior as well as exterior of
one's person poisoned. Many times
during his suffering Mr. Tiirims sol
emnly swore if he recovered, that he
would kill the man who got him into the
trouble, and it is said that he firmly in
tends to carry cut his threat half way,
if not entirely.
THE ENTRANCES AND EXITS
Last Montfe Were Very Nearly
The report of the health officer, Dr.
Granville McGowan, for the month of
July, was issued recently, and con
tains a number of valuable statistics.

there were 58 deaths and 59 births
within the corpora* limits of the city.
Of tbe former, 50 were whites and 2 col

For a Rise in Coffee Unless War is
"If these South American revolution
ists keep on fighting much longer there
will be a coffee famine on this coast,"
said a well-known grocer to a Herald
man yesterday. "The San Francisco
papers have predicted that, and they
are right. Very nearly all the coffee
which we get here conies from ■Central
America, and Guatemala and San Sal
vador furnish us about 100,000 sacks a

About the Dried-Fruit Industry at
Very few people appreciate the ex
tent of the dried-fruit boom now in
Southern California. A few figures fur
nished by one firm in the business at
Monrovia will illustrate it. In six weeks
paßt this company has cut 500 tone of
apricots and has shipped sixteen car
loads of the dried fruit. It has pur
chased already 850 tons of peaches,
which are now being dried, and the first
carload of which will be sent east to
day. It has also purchased for the same
purpose GOO tons of French prunes, and
will dry about ten carloads of grapes.
It employs 240 men, and takes care of
forty tons of fruit each day. The man
agers state they have sold all the fruit
that they can buy, and are ready to pay
$1.40 a hundred pounds for all that can
be delivered to them.
A SOUTHERN PACIFIC BRANCH
Which a San Bernardino Man Thinks
Will Be Built.
The latest story of railroad building
was told to a Herald reporter yesterday
by a San Bernardino man. He said that
the Southern Pacilic Company has de
cided to construct a line beginning at
Pomona and following the grade of the
Chino and Elsinore road to Chino; then
on to South Riverside, and to Riverside
by way of the Valley and Arlington
Heights. The predicted route from
Riverside extends northward to the
bluff, the Santa Ana river, and then
northeasterly to the Southern Pacific
main line again.

Notes and Personals.
Correspondence of the Herald. |
This place seems growing in popu
larity. Your correspondent was at
Avalon last year, and was surprised
upon his arrival last Friday to see the
immensely increased number of camps
and tents. The Hotel Metropole was
nearly as full as it would hold.
A look at the register brought to light
the names of numerous well-known
parties of Los Angeles and elsewhere.
Superintendent of the Southern Pacific
J. A. Muir and wife were recent visitors,
but Mr. Muir's leave of absence from
business is generally a short one. Capt.
Ainsworth found time to make a flying
visit to Avalon last Wednesday and re
mained over night. Mr. Jungman, of
the Santa Fe route, ran over on Friday
and remained until this morning. A. H.
Kuhns and Mrs. Ellen Kuhns, of Fresno,
are located for a time at the Metropole.
Dr. and Mrs. A. E. Wheeler and Mr.
and Mrs. J. B. Reeves are among other
recent arrivals. Mrs. William Lacey,
E. J, Lacey and Miss Sophie Lacey,
who have been here some time, re
turned to Los Angeles early last week,
but only remained a couple of days, and
are again quartered in the Metropole.
Among Friday's arrivals was Prof. A.
11. Hutchinson, who is engaged in pho
tographing some of the picturesque
scenery of the island for exhibition in
the east, among his other Southern Cal
fornia views, next winter.
Last Wednesday a party from Santa
Monica, consisting of C. C. Wallace, J.
W. Wallace, J. C. Wallace, Mattie Wal
lace, G. A. Wallace, E. J. Vawter, Jr.,
Mary Vawter and May Chapin, came
over, remained until the following day
Other recent arrivals at the Metropole
are E. Harriman; E. L. Goodwin, of the
Evening Express*, and Mrs. Goodwin;
J. S. Keefer and Judge K. L, Ling and
family, of Los Angeles; and J. K. Cuttle
and E. A. Law, of Riverside.
Frank Davies, son of J. M. Davie?, of
the west end, came down last night.
There are numerous private camps all
about the harbor. Tbe Y. M. C. A. has
a camp up on the hill. They had
twelve new arrivals there on Friday and
several more yesterday.
The names of some of the campe are
rather amusing. "Bachelors' Hall"and
"Orphan's Home" are two of the most
prevalent. "Camp Idlewild" was
formed only yesterday, and is composed
of two tents and seven boys, as follows:
A. W. P. Kinnev, captain ; Wm. P. Jef
fries, R. G. Tayior; Leo Wells, cook ; R.
G.Taylor, Harry Smith, Wm. Booth
and B. D. Frankenfield. The boys have
already been christened "White Caps"
by the campers on account of the uni
formity of their headgear.
Some of the prominent residents at
Avalon held an indignation meeting to
protest against the statement in the
Pasadena Star and a Los Angeles paper,
that Avalon is in a bad sanitary condi
tion by reason of filth and bad drainage
among the camps. The statement was
declared utterly absurd and false, and a
resolution was passed asking the Star to
correct the statement. Among those
noticed at the meeting, besides mimer
our Angelenos, were A. P. Johnson and
Dr. E. H. Way, of Riverside, and Messrs
Holland, Skillen, Dr. Davis andj. H.
Wallbridge, of Pasadena. Mr. C. C.
Case, who is justice of the peace here,
is rather indignant about the statement,
as about the only duty he has, is to
look after infractions of sanitary regu
The little steamer Wanda carried a
party of guests from the Metropole to
the isthmus yesterday, consisting of Mr.
C. H. Lowe, Mrs. Lowe, Mrs. Warner,
Mrs. Jno. McFarland, Mr. P. Jungman,
Prof. A. H. Hutchinson, J. F. Blake,
Mr. Watson and C. McFarland. The
trip occupied about nine hours, and
was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Messrs.
Wilson and McFarland were the success
ful fishermen of the party. Prof. Hutch
inson photographed some of the scenery
along the route and Mr. Blake and Cap
tain Remington furnished amusement
and information respectively.

crowded this morning to hear a sermon
by Rev. A. W. Rider, of the Memorial

Mr. J. F. Blake organized a tin can

occasionally. He is afraid to acknowl
edge the leadership, however, and puts
the title of leader upon Will Veazey.
The old residenterß threatened to drop
a man off the wharf for wearing a white
shirt on Friday, but gave it up when
the boat brought the first two blazer
wearers to town.

A HORSE WHO CAN TALK !
Everybody has heard of a " horse laugh,"
but who haa ever seen an equine gifted with
the power of speech? Such an animal would
be pronounced a miracle; but so would the
telegraph and the telephone a hundred years
ago. Why, even very recently a cure for con
sumption, which is universally acknowledged
to bo scrofula affecting the lungs, would have
been looked upon as miraculous, but now peo
ple are beginning to realize that the disease
is not incurable. Dr. Pierces Golden Medical
Discovery will cure it, if taken in time and
given a fair trial. This world-renowned rem
edy will not make new lungs, but it will re
store diseased ones to a healthy state when
other means have failed. Thousands grate
fully testify to this. It is the most potent
tonic, or strength restorer, alterative, or
blood-cleanser and nutritive, or flesh-builder,
known to medical science. For Weak Lungs,
Spitting of Blood, Bronchitis, Asthma, Ca
tarrh in the Head, and all Lingering Coughs,
it is an unequaled remedy. In derangements
of the stomach, liver and bowels, as Indiges
tion, or Dyspepsia, Biliousness, or "Liver
Complaint. Chronic Diarrhea, and kindred
ailments, it is a sovereign remedy.
I" Golden Medical Dis
covery " is the only med
icine of its class, sold
by druggists, under a
printed guarantee, from the manufact
urers, that it will benefit or cure in every case
of disease for which it is recommended, or
money paid for it will be promptly refunded.
