Major Hancock of the Brea
Rancho filed au information yester
day bsfore Judge Baldwin charg
ing a family named Urquhlez with
retaiuing possession ot prem
ises which they had been or
dered to vacate by the Sheriff.
The difftoulty grows out of a recent
decision in the I.ami office, we be
lieve. The family in question have
accupied a portioa of the Brea
ranch for many years, pending the
delays of the law in the decision
of the content. Now they do uot
feel like accepting th* issue.

man who would have predicted
such a state of affairs would have

Santa Monica Items.
[From the Outlook.
Mr. Bates, who lias had a long
exerlence in wharf building, in
forms us that the holding ground
in front of Sauta Monica is the
best he lias ever seen.
As we go to press the steanior
Orizaba is lying off tbe Santa
Monica wharf. A heavy sea is
rolling in, and we suppose Captain
Johnson is considering the risk of
Seeding operations in our irumo
diate back country are being push
ed forwanl vigorously. There will
be an euoriuous crop of grain this
season on the plains between Santa
Monica and Wilmington.
The sea was very rough last
night. The watchman on the
wharf thinks the rollers were the
heaviest we havo yet had. The
wharf, however, standi firm, with
■fin,' little damage.
Wo have been revolving the
problem in our mind as lo whether
ths next generation of men will or
will not smoke As far as we can
learn there is only one boy in Santa
Monica who does not smoke cignr
rettes. Better quit it, boys. It is
filthy, costly aud unhealthy.
The heavy ocean swells, Within
the past ten days, have some
what demoralized the Company's
bath houses on the beach. The
damage is not serious—ouly the
planks ripped from the platforms
In front, and sand drifts carried
from some points and deposited in
others. The upper bath-house,
which was a flimsy, almost worth
less structure, was tumbled from
its pegs. It has since been torn
down and the lumber hauled away.
Tbe bee-men in tho neighboring
canons are jubilant. They say
there will be plenty of bee feed
this season, which assures a large
honey crop. Having a curiosity to
know what constituted all this val
uable bee-feed, we ssked Mr. Butts,
who lives iv one of the canons, to
toll us the names of the floweriug
shrubs and the order in which they
bloom, when be gave us the follow
ing: Wild gooseberry, white and
red mahogany, bear-bush, wild cof
fee, white sage—the latter bloom
ing as late as September. The al
ulerllla on the plains also yields a
great abuudunce of feed. Wheu the
season is favorable, there are only
three mouths In tbo year in which
feed is scarce. During this short
period, the bees find more or less
foraging, but the careful apiarist
will always retain enough honey
for any emergency. Season before
last was extra good, and the bees
were closely robbed, uuder the be
lief that the following year would
also be favorable. It proved other
wise, and the boe-meu lost heavily.
However, they will know better
for the future.
Redactic of Telegraphic Rates.
Mr. Stuart, Superintendent of the
Los Angeles office, Western Union
Telegraph, submits tho following
changes of schedule rates on mes
sages, which have been determ
ined upon by the bead office:
On and after February Ist, the
rate for each additional five words,
or fraction thereof, will be discon
tinued and a rate for eaclt word
adopted as per following schedule:
When ratiofor 10 words is 23 cents ths rate
for each additional word is 3 cants.
When ratio for 10 words is 40 cents tho rate
for each additional word is 3 cents.
When ratio for 10 words is 51) cents tho rite
for each additional word is 3 cents.
When ratio for 10 words is 75 cents the rate
for each additional werd is 5 cents.
When ratio for 10 words is $1.00 the rate
for each additional word is 7 csuts.
W lien ratio for 10 wordß is $1.25 tho rata
for each additional word is 8 c.-nts.
Wheu ratio tor 10 words is $150 tho rate
tor i aeh additional word ia 10 Centi.
When ratio for lO words is $1.75 the rate
for each additional word is I*2 cents.
When ratio for 10 words is $2 00 tho rah
for eacli additional word is 13 conts.
Ween ratio for 10 words is $2.50 the rate
for elicit additional word id 17 cents.
This, it is thought, will make a
more equltablearraugement for tne
public than that heretofore in
vogue. A man will bereafter.pay
for just what he sends, over the l eg
ulation message of ten word9—no
more, no less. A message of eleven
words, which now costs 35 cents,
will then amount to only 27 cents.
We arj sure that all who re
sort to the use of the telegraph
wires will hail this new arrange
ment with lively satisfaction.

Overtasking the Energies.
It Is not advisabio for any of us to over
task our energlos, corporeal or mental,
but ln the eager pursuit of wealth or fame
or knowledge, how many transgress this
salutary rule. It must be a matter ofthe
greatest lmportanee to all who da so to
know how they can regain the vigor so
recklessly expended. The remedy Is
neither costly nor dlffleull lo obtain.
Hosletter's Stomach Hitters Is procurable
lv every city, town and settlement in
America, and It compensates for a drain
or bodily or mental energy more effectu
ally than any invleorant ever prescribed
or advertised. Labeling men, athletes,
students, Journalists, lawyers, clergy
men, physicians, ull b*ur testimony to
Its woudrously renovating powers. It
luereuses the capabilities for undergoing
