A NERVY WOMAN.
Bhe Finds a Man Under Her Bed and
Proceeds to Pump Lead Into Him.
About 11 o'clock Thursday morning a
eneak tbief entered the home of Oscar
P. Taylor, on Seventh Btreet, between B
and 0, eayß the San Bernardino Courier,
and secreted himself in the bedroom of
Mre. Taylor. Mrs. Taylor, who was
alone in the house, bad occasion to go
to her bedroom and espied the rascal
underneath the bed. She gave no out
cry or gave no sign of having seen him,
but quietly left the room to determine
what waa beet to be done, aa
there was no help near, and being
a brave little woman, she determined
to fight it out heraelf, and having se
cured a small rifle she made a raid upon
the villain who had taken up his
quarters in her room. As she waa en
tering the room the ascond time the
man waa just emerging from beneath
the bed. Mrs. Taylor opened fire upon
him, shooting him in the neck, tearing
away a piece of flesh. The wound bled
profusely. As soon as ahe fired she
Bhut the door and the man made his
escape through the window. Mrs. Taylor
heard him getting out, and went out of
the back door of the house and saw the
fellow running from tbe house, when
she fired a second shot at him. She
thinks ahe hit him in the back, ac he
threw tip hia hands as soon as the shot
was fired.
Whether the scoundrel contemplated
anything more serious than robbery is
not known, but it is to be regretted that
Mrs. Taylor was not provided with a
larger grin, and thus been able to give
the fellow what he deserved.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1893.
NOTED IN THE LOCAL ROOM.
Incidents Which Make News-
paper Men Weary.
Episodes Which All Occurred In One
Evening: ta One Otlice.
The Various Characteristics Which
People Display When They
I.titer a Newspaper
Ofllce.
A newspaper man of the city recently
took notes of the occurrences in the
local room one evening from about 7
o'clock until lin the morning. A few
of the incidents, all of them being too
numerous to mention here, were as fol
lows. The names and subjects are of
course disguised, but the incidents are
of real occurrence and in tbe main are
faithfully outlined. The interlocuted is
always the city editor, De Jonea. He is
diecovered at his desk surrounded by
Eeveral cords of copy, from which he
extractß libel suits, errors of spelling,
grammar and bad taste, writes heads,
wrestleß with the foreman and oversees
the movements of the reporter, while
the following incidents occur:
Kilter woman richly dressed, inky fin
gers, nervous, evidently sorry she has
come—"City editor? Yes? I have a
little poem (De Jones shudders) which I
would like to have you print. My sis
ter's little boy, Freddie, died yesterday,
and I just wrote a lew lines,—yea, I'll
leave it, but I think I had better
read it to you first; my
handwriting is indistinct; I wouldn't
want any mistake. (Reads.) Little
Freddie's gone above. We cannot see
him but we can love. He's left all his
playthings here behind. But he's with
the angels, so does not mind. (De Joneß
meanwhile surreptitiously writeß a note
to the church editor, "go out in the
hallway and swear till she goes.")
Church editor does it with alacrity and
esse. Woman getß confused, then gets
mad, stops reading, bounces out with:
"Stop my paper tomorrow," and De
Jones attacks a second pile of copy after
complimenting the church editor.)
Five minutes later—Enter tall sad
faced old gentleman, eyes red, his lips
tremulous, voice uncertain with a sus
picion of a sob occasionally—"Pardon
me, Mr. De Jones, I was told to see you.
Can I speak with you privately. Thank
you. It's about my—mv Eon. Who is
he? Charley Goyboye (De Jones recol
lected a story the police reporter had
handed in and proceeds to harden his
heart against the attacks on his feelings
he knowß is coming) "You know
about it, I presume. Y—yee, Charley
took the money ; he —he—he is guilty ;
I cannot deny that, but I have succeeded
in arranging the matter; he went home
to go to—to —jail, sir. I have paid
hack the money. It took all I have
in the world, and his old mother
and I have to begin life over again ; but
I don't want to trouble you with my
affiiction any more than to ask you not
to print his etory in the morning. Give
my poor boy a chance ; if it's printed he
will never have a chance aijain. The
shame of it will be more than his poor
old mother can stand. I'm 73 years
old, and Charley'b mother ia 70; he's
always been a good boy. You won't de
prive him of every chance to save him
self, will you? Don't print his story;
for God's sake give my poor boy a
chance. Have you got a son? (De
Jones has not,' and is very glad he
hasn't from what he knows oi many
men's sons.) If you had, you would
| not be so cruel aa to publish to the
world my boy's shame." (Old man
puts head down on arm and softly crieß.
De Jones trieß to explain to him the
necessity for showing no favors, for
never suppressing any news, but his
argumente don't come as fast as the old
gentleman's tearß. De Jones then ex
plains he has no right to "kill" a story
without consent of the chief. Goes in
lront office, explains the matter
lo the chief, who says: "What, the
father there crying; well, its poor news
paper business, but gYiess you can tell
him the Btory won't go; if yon don't he
may insist on talking to me. Da Jones
goes back. Old gentleman jumps up on
■ feet, eager look. De Jones tells him
1 story won't be printed. Old man
throws arm around De Jones' neck and
' weeps some more. De Jones shifts old
I man's head bo his tears won't make his
I Bhirt collar limp and feela like a bloom
ing idiot. After exit of old man De
! Jonea fondly fingers the killed Btory,
then resolutely teara it up, sighs and
nuts a barrel oi copy on the hook in the
! next 10 minutes).
Enter Mr. Savvy Hisßusineaa—"Hal
low, De Jones! You're looking wor
ried. Yes, just got in. What have I
got this time? Why, M'lle Biliian Bus
sell in La Sixgall, engagement opens
Monday at the opera house. Here'a
Borne stuff about her. Know you're
busy now. Ta, ta! Will I lunch with
you? Well, willl! What time? 12:30,
at Billy's. I'll be there."
Eight on hia heels cornea Mr. No
Savvy How—"Hallo. De Jonea. How
are you? I'm here with the greatest
show ever in the town. Played to six
thou in Kansas City last week. House
can't hold 'em. Why, say, it's the big
gest winner you ever saw. Come out
and have a drink? Too busy? Oh,
rata. You newspaper fellera never work
any. Say, give me a good send off in
the morning. Why, my boy, we have
the greatest company ever on the road.
Why, we have two carloads of acenery,
and carry 58 people. We open Thurs
day. Why—um—um—um—(he keepa
on talking while De Jonea works away
as if he was alone. No Savvy How at
last realizes the aitnation.) "Say, I'm
talking to you, De Jonea; you know it?
Well, you don't act aa if you did. Don't
believe you've heard a word I've said for
the paßt 15 minutes. Well, as I was say
ing—(he commences again, but De Jones
tella him that if he don't get right out
hia company won't get a line—and he
goeB).
De Jones just get well into a most im
portant piece of copy, has corrected the
spelling of the names of half a dozen
people mentioned in it, and is trying to
think whether the reporter meant to
write the name of L, F. Thomson or 8.
E. Thompson when the door slams
viciously, the odor of a bad cigar filiß
the room, and a would-be bad man,
holding a copy oi the paper in hie
hands, looms up beside the desk and
sayß: "Say, young feller, you got to fix
this, dyer see? If yer don't there's
goin'to'be trouble. See? Yer've got
me in yer bloomin' paper arrested yes
terday for swipin' a watch. Now the
blankety blank blank fellow wot lost the
watch can't prove I took it, see? Now
youv'e got to retract that, ccc? Was
I arrested? Sure. Wasn't the
charge etealing a watch? Certee, but
don't I tell you tbey never can't prove
it? Now you put a piece in, putting me
right; dyer understand? If yer don't,
me and yer will have trouble right here,
now. See? Wb't dyer say? Get out
of here damned quick? Wot! dyer
mean to insult me?"
De Jones — "Well, I've hardly got
time now to inault you properly and
completely aa it ought to be done; but il
you'll be kind enough to shut your ugly
face for about two minutes. I'll give
you the moat artistic insult you ever
received ; and if yon make the slightest
objection I'll blow off the top of your
disreputable head. Now git." Aud he
got.
A short time elapses when the door
opens and O'.lagleta tumbles in the
room. He had been the police reporter
but too many treats had got away with
his sobriety and he had "fallen down"
literally and figuratively. He began:
"Shay DeJzhones len me $2. M' hun
gry, y'won't? Well, make it $11. Only
♦3. Awful hungzry, ole fei. No? Well,
zhat'a tough. Lenme four bits, won
zhue? Only four bita ? Two bits? Dime
zhen. Say, De Jzhoiies, didn't theuk
you were sho blamed mean. Owe you
weeksh pay now? You're blooming liar
zhue? Shay, hole ou. Whazzie doin'?
Lemme lone. Don't shrow feller nut
zhis way. I'm goin' don you shee
fasht'B can. Yesh I'll hurry. Make it
nickel won sher, jes one beer. All
righz, don get eglizitea. I'm goin'
righz way," and he went.
#*#
"Mr. De Jones? Yes? Allow me."
and the next comer, a tall man, clad
in rusty broadcloth and long hair and
bearing evidence of a lack of übb of
water and soap, deposits a card on the
desk reading "Prof. Knowall Foolem."
"Of course Mr. De lones, you know
who I am. lam the wonder of the cen
tury; there is no mystery in hyponot
ism, occultism, spiritualism and all the
other problems of tbe day but what I
have mastered. Here is a abort inter
view with myself I have prepared, which
you will print in the morning; you will
also send a reporter to my lecture on
Tuesday evening and print it in full;
it will be very valuable matter for you.
Send me about 20 papers containing
the interview tomorrow to my hotel.
I waß once a newspaper man, co you
will do this out of fraternal feeling of
course. Here'B a ticket to my lecture.
Come around and hear it, won't you?
Don't cut anythi. g out of that inter
view; it's fine stuff," and out he goes.
#*#
Mr. Smooth Voice then softly enters
with a mysterious smile un his face.
He is an irrepressible cuss, with a
mania for telling what he doea not
know to reporters. "Say, De Jones,
I've got something racy for you thia
time; something that will turn tbe
town upside down. You know Mrs..
(he whispers awell known woman's
name); well, she and Colonel
(here another whisper conceals
the name) were caught riding
in a hack Thursday nigh,
by her husband. He punched the
colonel on tbe noße aud slapped his
wife's face, snd if the hackman hadn't
jumped between them he'd have killed
her. Here's the hackman's number,
he'll give you the whole Btory; but
don't you ever mention my name about it.
Why not? Why my dear De Jones, Col.
IB one of the beat friends 1 have in
the world, and Mr. 'b name ia on
mv note in the Firßt National; he
thinks the world of me, while Mrs.
IB one of thecloseet friends my wife has.
What do I talk about them lor then ?
Why, to give you a story. Thought
you'd like a good beat like that, and
here you seem to be mad about it.
What'a that, sir? Think I am a low
down sneak and cad, do you? Well, Mr.
De Jones, I want ycu to understand, sir,
that I don't tolerate any sueh —what —
the story ia a lie, ia it? You don't be
lieve it, eh? Oh! Indeed! Perhaps
you are rather sweet on Mrs. your
self—what's that? You'll throw me out
of here? Like to ccc you do it! By
Jove, sir, I have a mind to cane you.
Here! Let go of me, De Joneß. Oh,
come now, I didn't mean anything.
Confeßß it's a lie? Well, I heard some
thing about somebody or other, and I
thought you would like a good Btory,
and perhaps I did exaggerate a little.
Now look a' here, De Jones,
I've explained, and it'a very rude
(outside of door), "Say, De Jones, I'll
never give you another etory like that,
and please don't mention my having
been here."
And bo they go. There'B the fellow
who puts a cigar on the deak and thinks
he ought to get a column free write up
in return; there's the scoundrel who
thinks he can tip a newspaper man aa
he would a Pullman porter and buy
what he wants said or unsaid ; there's
the exchange fiend, whose aleigbt oi
hand enablea him to get out of the pile
of newßpapers which the porter haa just
brought from the pOßtoffice the very
onea which De Jonea wants—this fellow
never fails; there's the man who insists
on talking politics, and the man who
wants an office, and similar boreß with
out number.
But there is a pleaßaat credit side to
the account. There are warm friends
who drop in to say a pleasant word or
do a favor; there are otherß who bring
in valuable news or give a desirable
pointer; there are cheery, breezy fel
lows who come in for a minute, brace up
a tired worker by a crisp joke or a good
atory, and all of theae cannot call too
often on De Jones and men like him.
Goesiperß abroad aay tbat Sarah Bern
hardt'B reckless son, Maurice, has
squandered all of his own fortune and
not a little of Sarah's money at baccarat,
and as his independent little wife re
fuses to support him any longer, they
have quarreled and separated. Then
business lias not been exactly successful
of late witb tbe gieat actress.
Several of her ventures have not been
rich in results. Finally they have bur
leEqued ber Cleopatra, and represent
tbe divine aB mildly dancing and sing
ing Ta-ra-ra boom-de-ay, and Sarah
doesn't like it a bit. One can fancy the
choice but translatable variety of
French profanity with which the great
tragedienne discusses this succession of
misfortunes.
Nature's Surest Ally.
If nature di l not struggle against disease,
even in weakly constitutious, swift indeed
would be the course of a malady to its fatal
termination. While nature thus struggles let
us, lest worse befall us, aid her efforts with
judicious medicinal help Experience must
be onr guide iv battles with disease, and that
"lamp to our feet" indicates Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters as a safe, tried and thoruneh
ally of nature. If the blood be infected with
bile, if the bowels and stomach arc inactive, if
the kidneys fail to expel lmpuritlCß of which
they are the natural outiet, a course of the
Bitters is the surest reliance of the tuft'eter,
one, moreover, that is sanctioned by profes
sional iudoroement and use ior nearly half a
century. No American or foreigu remedy haf
earned greater distinction as a remedy for and
preventive of chronic liver complaint, malaria,
constipation, kidney and rheumatic trouble
and debility.

ground.
About 2 o'clock on Sundays you begin
to notice a crowd about the Hollenbeck
corner. They are awaiting an electric
car to carry them out to the open-air
concert at Weetlake park. They fly up
the steep Second-street grade, perfectly
black with their swarms of humanity;
and from the other paits of the city
there are just as many who patronize
tbe cable cara that run out Seventh
street. Arriving at the little park you
find landscape gardening in perfec
tion, with the heath of tbe
cape of Good Hope eide-by
side witb the box thorn of Tasmania,
the araucaria of Norfolk island, the
golden wattle of Australia and the
hibiscus of Hawaii. About the park is
a cordon of carriages aud buggiea more
than a mile in length, their occupants
being chiellv of the fair Bex. The hour
of 3 haa arrived and tbe band is in the
Btand already. Following is the pro
gramme of the day:
March, Spring, Meyer.
Medley, Black Brigade, Beyer.
Walts, Visions of Paradise. Rennet.
Potpourri, BugenotS, Meyerbeer.
I 1 '.: ■ .Meseissua, Rideugue.
March, rimbal, timber
Overture, Zatupa, Her dd.
Bel6otion, Hubert, be Diablo, Meyerbeer.
La Belle ama/oue, Loesohorn.
Tnere are a score of children playing
about near the band stand, aa the music
strikes up the familiar Btraina of Danc
ing in the Ham or Roll 'Em Up Higher. ,
\ou hear the thin, piping treble voices
mingling with th" blare of the brass.
There are no end of young ladies, ac
companied by their beaux, and between
the pieces they stroll away for a talk
and a walk upon the circular promenaoe
around the lake. The vehicles are all
handsome turnouts, drawn by horaeß in
whose veins flow 6 the aristocratic life
current of euch patrician pires as Grim
stead, Echo, Snltan and Rutherford.
Let n > halt by the lake and watch the
parsing show.
There goes a young belle from Santa
Ana, who is, they Bay, in no particular
hurry to get married. She has LSI
(teres in her own right and an oiler of
$90,000 would be refused, because the
land is in high cultivation. Behind her
and her escort are two women draped
in quiet robes of gray. The older of
the two is a messalina, for the writer
h»a known her 20 years and not in Los
Angeles. There waa an army officer
dishonorably discharged on her account
and, although she ia well up into the
forties, ehe is etill baiting her hook for
fresh gudgeons. Well, aa long aB such
women exi?t, there will always be fools
to run after th tn. There waß never
yet a supply, except in obedience to a
demand.
Here comeß a young belle from Fi
gueroa street with cheeks like new-born
roseß and an eye aa blue as the far-off
eea. That young insurance clerk thinks
he ia going to get her, but he iB mis
taken. There ia a young fellow up at
Berkeley who will have something to
say about it. Behind her come two
stately young girls, in whose dark eyeß
and heavy coiling hair you easily can
detect the Spanish blood not very far
off. One of them haa been married and
Was recently divorced from as worthless
a scamp aa ever saw this town. Next to
them come a couple, mother and daugh
ter, and you can hardly tell which iB
which. Their ages, are very uncertain.
The band atrikea up the brilliant
overture to Zampa as we stroll west
ward and watch the great sun dipping
into the glowing waves, while the blue
vault overhead is decked with a vista of
purple and gold such aa one never sees
but here on a winter's day. A few are
putting on tbeir overcoats, whileothera,
who have leftt-heir's behind, are button
! ing their cutawayo up to the neck.
Already the sun has faded from thecrests
of the Sierra Madre, leaving their icy
eummitß coldly pure in the light of tbe
expiring day.
The medley from Robert the Devil
strikes up, but the crowd has become
wonderfully thinned out in th -past 20
minutea. There ie a mob about the
cable care, and the electric as well, and
the young man who haa "Robert, toi
que j'aime" for a polo on the cornet be
ginß to fear that he won't have anybody
there to hear, much less applau d him.
The fiery Buneet has turned to a dim
gloaming. Long, triangular phalanxeß
of wild fowl are hovering on strong winga
through the roßy eunset air and plash
ing into the lake as though shot from a
mortar. Twilight Bteala on apace, and
hailing a well lighted houaeand a Btnok
ing hot dinner, the reporter Bays fare
well to the daylight and hies him swiftly
home.

Pacific Gospel union waa held at Gospel

year, ,160 have beer supplied with work.
The attendance upon the Sunday morn
ing free breakfast averajed about 135.
A new feature of the work recently un
dertaken has been the appointment of
several Bible women, whose mission it
is to visit the homes of the poor and
destitute and carry them the message of
thi gospel. A brief report was read by
Mieß Carver, giving a glimpse of the
work accomplished by thefn during tho
paßt few months.
Following the report Mr. Hare sang a
iolo. Rev. Dr. Read, Rev. Dr. Strad
ley and Rev. Mr. Crabbe read short ad
dresses expressing their sympathy with
and appreciation of the work of the
union, after which Mrs. Brown sang a
solo very sweetly.
The assistant superintendent made
an addreeß giving a few instances re
garding the work of the union for the
year, and in closing expressed tho
thanks of the superintendent, board
of directors and the many who had been
materially aided by the union, to the
Christian people of Los Angeles and
vicinity for their sympathy and co
operation in the work. After a hymn
the audience ,vas dismissed.
