We have Ueeu requested by a
number of persons who live at
Pasadena and San Oabriel to call
the attention of the proper author
ities to the condition of the road
aligning Reservoir No. 5, For
some distance the roadway is so
narrow that two teams cannot pass
and on dark nights it is impossible
for drivers to see from one end of
the narrow place to the other. As
a result, a few nights ago, two
heavily loaded wagons met mid
way aud it was witb the greatest
difficulty tbat oue of the wagons
could be pulled out backwards to
allow tbe other to get through; and,
on Thursday night last, the vehicle
of a gentleman driving home after
dark was overturned, fortunately
without serious accident. This
nuisance has been In existence, we
tblnk, about long enough, and we
call upon tbe Water Supply Com
mittee to abate it before the city is
amerced for Injuries to property,
perhaps life, ou account of acci
dents that may at any time occur.

curate statement. The reduction
is of Indefinite duration, perhaps
for nil time. The twenty days has
reference simply to the time for
which each round trip ticket runs,
and it means that If the holder is
longer than twenty days on his

no serious consequences are ex

the woman swore out a warrant
against Sepulveda for assault and

a long distance affords unusual
shipping facilities. The Jamison

The Way it Works.
Mr. J. L. Wright, owner of a
ranch on the San Gabriel river, in
front of tbe San Antonio rancho, in
this county, a successful farmer
and dairyman, became disgusted
with California over a year ago.
Thirty-seven cents aud a half per
per pound for butter, the year round
and ten tans of alfalfa per aero per
annum spent their fascinations
upon him so long that they oeased
to be a virtue. He tried to sell his
San Gabriel ranch and borne, but
failed. He then leased the whole
establishment, dairy cows aud all.
Like a bird liberated from at least
a portion of the clogs, Mr. Wright,
with his family, hied away to his
old home, i'ansfleld, Rlohland
oounty, Qhio. Ho visited many
other garden spots of tbat valley of
valleys. He meant business and
was in earnest. He felt every
inch a buoyant and everlasting ex-
Callfornlau. By-and-by he was
not near so buoyant as he bad
been. After a while he was not
buoyant worth a oeut. In tbe
meantime a year of sojourning
East had Sown. The mist was
gone, and bis eyes were opened.

This last transit, reoently accom

Wright to Los Angeles.county, the
most radical pro-Californlan ex
tant. His stray East has cured him
or all discontent with California.
Mr. Wright draws- a sponge over
every entry against California.
His place is do longer for sale. As
soon as the lease expires he will re
enter his now thoroughly appre
ciated Sau Gabriel home. Tbe
allopathic treatment, consisting of
a liberal administration of sojourn
