Tiie Los Augeles Oil Company
who have expended several thou
sand dollars in preparations to de
velop their oil claim iv the Sespe
District, commenced the actual
work (if boring Monday. They
have B forty-horse power engine
and llie most approved machinery
in place and their work will be
very rapid, doubtless making a test
of tlio capabilities of that section
inside of six weeks or two months,
should no serious accident ensue.
The company have suffered severe
ly by the heavy rains aud cloud
bursts, which occurred in that sec
tiou, having their derrick and
buildings completely demolished
once, and tho rond to the claim,
(built at an expense of a thousand
dollars or more) entirely swept
away on two successive occasions,
But these difficulties have all been
met promptly and energetically,
and now that boring lias been com
menced, Wo trust that no more un
toward circumstances may occur lo
retard their progress. This will be
the first thorough test of the oil
bearing resources of the Sespe Dis
trict. Although men of experience
bave pronounced its surface Indi
cations far superior to those of the
San Fernando Disirict, there seems
to havo been a lack of pioneer en
terprise heretofore to make the
proper development. Messrs. Jones
& Co. havo been at work for sev
eral months, it is true, and have
reached v depth of about one hun
dred and lifty feet, with good
promise, but their apparatus Is of a
primitive kind, consisting of a
spring polo and horse-power and
this, together with the frequent
break-downs which they have suf
fered, rendered the progress very
slow and tedious. We would not
be surprised to learn of a fine Hew
ing well resulting from the opera
tions of the Los Angeles Company
in the near future.— Express.

The Stepping Stone to Health.
Theacquisition of vital energy Is the
stepping stone to lu-allh. When the sys
tem lacks vitality, the various organs
tlag in their duty, become chronically
Irregular, and disease is eventually In
stituted. To prevent this unhappy state
ot tilings, the debilitated system should
be built up by the use of that inimitable
tonic, Ilostetter's Stomach Bitters,which
invigorates the digestive organs and In
sures the thorough conversion of food
into blood of a nourishing quality, Irom
whence every muscle, nerve and Bore ac
quire unwonted supplies of vigor, and
the whole system experiences In* bene*
flcial efTect. Appetite returns, the sys
tem is refreshed by healthful sliimeer.
the nerves grow strong and calm, the
despondency begotten ol chronic Indiges
tion aud an un-ertutn slate of health
disappears, and that sallow appearance
of the skin peculinr to habitual invalids
and persons deficient In vital energy, is
replaci-d by a more becoming tinge.
