now. That might go up in S .intw Bar

v hittier to swallow that kind of taffy.
Why, Hervey Lindley is making Mc-
Lttcl'.ian's light right down in our town,
hnd every railroad man, Irom tbe agent
to the section men, are whooping it up
for .Mcl, nil Inn just as tiiey did two
years ago for Lindley. It's jii3t as good
as a circus to mention George Patton'o
name to a railroad man.
' I'be delegates from oar section to
the Sicrameuto convention told me that

that Ilervey L'.ndiey is very mad at him,
considering that Lindley owned the

like sheep to Din Barns.

is to turn down that gang."
MB. ALFORD AT FULLERTON.
Editors Hekalo :—Hon. W. H. Alford,
the Democratic nominee for congress
man from this district (ths Seventh)
addressed a large orowd bere on
Wednesday evening, although Senator
Perkins spoke in Anaheim, only two
miles from here, at tbe same hour. He
haa a very prepossessing appearance
and, being a natural born orator, cap
tured his andience from the start. His
articnlation is excellent and his style
measured and precise. In bis short
discourse he did not utter one word ol
abuse or make one slighting remark
about either of hia opponents, nor did
he spend his time in tirade againßt Re
publicans, Prohibitionists or Popnliata.
Mr. Allord's discouree was straight to
tbe point and is considered by those
who heard him to be the most scholarly
and rational political speech ever de
livered in Fnllerton.
His frienda at his home in Yisalia
Itave organised an Alford club, number
ing nearly 150 members. Tbia club is
composed oi men from all parties,
Democrats, Republican!, Prohibition*
isis, Populists, all pledging themeelvee
to support Mr. Alford for congress. The
club wae formed in 24 honrs.
Hon. William H. Alford has won for
himself by his gentlemanly bearing and
scholarly oratory the respect and ad
miration ol a host of voters outside cf
big own party who will cast their ballots
ior him on November 6th.
Very truly yours,

TUB COUNTY CLRRK's OFFICE.
An evening Republican contemporary
has published what it calls its firs t
bapter on the Republican party an d
economy, and it is worthy °*p 9 roaal
by every taxpayer. By it be may h()
able to discover that though tne t9XOa
have increaßed, yet the Bepub] joan oUi .
ciola have been economical.
Ac an ilh'.elration ol economy the
papor Bingles out the county clerk and
hia deputies. This is an important il
lustration, as the (acts plainly show.
DuririK tho year 1803, the Duusmoor-
Mereditb regime, the eularies of county
clerk and deputies amounted to $23,600.
County Clerk Word went into office in
January, 1801, and the salaries of him
self and depntiea for tl.af year amounted
to $27,815, an increase of $4516 over
ISUO. For the year 1892, Mr. Ward and
hie deputies received aa salariea $30,
--682, an increase of $7182 over 1890. The
figures given include court deputies,
whoee salaries were oharged to the
county clerk ior the yeara 1890, 1891 and
1892, and to the superior court lor 1893.
On the same basis Mr. Ward and his
depntisa received in 1893, $2(5,066, an
increase of $3016 over 1890.
The figures cun be juggled, but it will
be difficult to make taxpayers believe
that it was much economy to increase
the of this office some
$14,713 in three yeara.
There wbb a reduction in the salary
list of the county clerk's office in 1893
over 1892, and Republicans are fond of
attributing it to the economy ol their
incumbout, Mr. Ward.
In the light of the' cold facta of the
case, this claim alao will not bsar nn
alyaia vary well.
During the yeara 1891 and 1892 Mr.
McLachlan waß district attorney. There
was a Republican board of supervisors
as weli. The county government act
fixed the number ol deputies in the
clerk's offioe, but it was stretobed as
easily as tbe consciences of the officials,
to provide places for the boys, and
every chuir v/aa warmed. The figures
of the salary list for that year show this
to be a fact that cannot be juggled.
In 1893 there wbb still a Republican
board of Buperviaors ond olerk, but Mr.
McLachlan was succeeded by Mr. H. C.
Dillon, wbo bad been elected by the
Democrats and Populists. In striking
contrast with bis predecessor Mr. Dillon
at once set about administering hia
office according to hia oath of office and
the law. He politely but firmly in
formed the board of supervisora ond the
county clerk tbat tbe law fixed thenum
bor of deputies in the clerk's office, and
that the number must be cut down or
the matter brought to the attention of
the courtii. Mr. Ward wao thua com
pelled to reduce the nnmber of his dep
uties, and it is for thia that bia Repub
lican friends point with pride to hia
economy. Tbere ia still a ahrewd sus

LOS ANGEI.ES HERALD MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 15, 1804.
IT IS BY FAR THE MOST ELEGANT WA
TER PARK IN THE WORLD.
A Hcasnro Stream ou Which In tho Sea
son Thcro Is Always a Crowd and Tct
Plenty of r.oom--The Trip From Oxford
to Richmond a Delightful Experience.
Tho river Thames is tho most impor
tant as it is tho most beautiful water
park in tho world. It is to London and
tho adjacent counties what the Charles
river should and can by tho diligence
of public spirit bo to Boston and tho ad
jacent towns. With tho hope of stirring
this public spirit, and showing what tho
English do with their beautiful rivor,
snd how they manago it, how they pay
for its maintenance as a water park, I
present what follows:
Tho Thames, counting all its turn
ing;! and IWisttagl and not measuring
by a direct line, inns something liko 200
miles from its source to tho sen. On its
banks aro 10 counties, iucluding Lon
don, having a population of 8,500,000
people and a ratable valuation of about
$300,000,000. It drains, with its tribu
taries, an nrea of moro than 5,000 squaro
miles. Until it enters tho county of
London it is distinctly a rivor of pleas
ure. From the western border of tho
county of London to tho spa, a distance of
sixty odd miles, i t is a highway of com
mcrco. By its aid London has becorno
tho greatest port in the world.
It is of the Thames as a ploasuro
stream that I propose to writo, but it is
well to understood at tho outset that the
river from stait to finish as a water
park and as a commercial highway is
under the control of a single authority
called "tho Thames conservancy."
For purposes cf administration tho river
is technically divided into two parts—
tho upper ami tho lower. Tho upper
portion is practically what I havo al
ready indicated as tho water park or
pleasure section, and with that portion
only am I now concerned.
Ono soes the upper Thames at its best
from tho middle of May to tho end of
September. Between those dates tho
trip down stream, say from Oxford to
Richmond, a journey of 100 miles, is
ono of the most delightful experiences
that can come to a lover of outdoor pas
time. The best way to see the stream
is to row or punt or paddle down the
rivor, stopping overnight at any pleas
ant inn you may come to and making
the jouruoy in easy stages of about 20
miles a day. In this way you see some
of the loveliest portions of the English
country to the best advantago and un
der ideal oonditiojis. This journey is a
favorite one with thousands of people,
and tho facilities for undertaking it in
comfort nre abundant, Iv fact, the
Thames abounds in facilities for out
door pleasure. At every few miles there
are boathouses and iuns, and almost
anywhere you can put up on the banks
for a day's picnic. From end to end of
tho course, now on one side of tho
stream and now on tho other, there is a
towing path for tho freo use of the pub
lic Wherefer the path shifts from ono
side of tho stream to tho other there is
a ferry station.
There are some 40 locks on the
Thames. At each look thcro are keepers
always on duty, and they reside in pret
ty cottages on the banks. Most of the
locks aro supplied with inclinod roller
ways, over which small boats can be
easily taken if you prof or not to wait
for a passago through tho look.
Mauy of the Thameside towns have
an annual rowing regatta, each of which
makes for its district tho great fete day
of tho year. Tho ohiof of these regattas
is that at Henley, \*hose fame is knowu
to amateur oarsmen tho world over. A
Thames fete day affords ono of the most
dolightful speotacles that can bo imag
ined. Tho course is literally covored
with small boats Tho bright costumes
of the occupants give a sprinkling of
welcome color to the scene. The festiv
ity is indeed a water carnival. The
houseboats, wbich make an important
part of the fleet, line the banks and are
docked with flowers and bunting, and
at night evory craft is gayly illuminated.
Ou these occasions tho old saying that
"tho English take their pleasures sad
ly" is again disproved, for a jollier and
more delightful festa is nowhere to be
found in Europe. Besides, no matter
how great tho crowd or how high tho
spirits of it, the order of tho day is
perfectly kept. Perhaps tho rough ele
ment of tho community does not caro
for thoso water sports. Perhaps the up
per river is too far from the haunts of
the turbulent, but whatevor the cause
tho faot remains that gala days on tho
Thames are as notable for good manuers
a3 for good fun, and no matter how
hugo the throng (there may be a seem
ingly solid milo of small craft packed
across the river from bank to bank) yet
the whole business is so well managed
that when the time comes to clear tho
course for racing tho way is easily made
by tho regatta authorities and the offl
oers of the Thamos oonservancy.—Bos

Tho average civilizod man would be
hard put to it if ho wero compelled to
start a firo without matclios, tindor box

Hohnel describes an African chief as
not only accomplishing this feat, but
doing it with quickness and ease. Tho
traveler had asked him to show his skill.
It was really wonderful, in view of
tho moisture laden atmosphere, with
what rapidity he did as I had requested.
The materials employed wore such as
we saw wherever wo went—two sirnplo
bits of wood, ono flat about six inches
long and not quito au inch wide, with
a row of grooves ou one sido, tho other
about 12 inches long aud of tho thick
ness and shape of a load pencil.
Tho longer pisce, fixed in one of tbe
grooves of the shorter piece, was held
tightly between tho palms of the hand
and whirled rapidly round and round.
In a few ceconds the wood dust which
was produced by tho friction, and which
foil through tho grooves, began to smoke.
This dust WM carefully nurced into a
blaze, which was fed with fino grass
and bits of cotton stuff.

Cures Ninety-eight per cent, of all
cases of Consumption, in all its
Although by many believed to be Incura
ble, there is the evidence of hundred!) of
living witnesses to the fact that, in all its
earlier stages, consumption is a curable
disease. Not every case, but a large per
centage of cases, and we believe, fully oS
percent, are cured by Dr. Pierces Golden
Medical Discovery, even after the disease
has progressed so far as to induce repeated
bleedings from the lungs, severe lingering
cough with copious expectoration (includ
ing tubercular" matter),"great loss of flesh
and extreme emaciation and weakness.
Do you doubt that hundreds of such case 9
reported to ua a3 cured by "Golden Med
ical Discovery " were genuine case 3 of that
dread and fatal disease ? You need not take
our word for it. They have, 111 nearly every
instance, been so pronounced by the best
and most experienced home physicians,
who have no interest whatever in mis
representing them, and who v/er-i often
strongly prejudiced nnd advised against
a trial of ' Golden Medical Discovery,"
but who have been forced lo confess that
it surpasses, in curative power over this
fatal malady, all other medicines with
which they are i,equa::ited. Nasty cod
liver oil and its filthy "emulsions" and
mixtures, had been triod in nearly all these
cases and had either utt-rly failed to bene
fit, or had only seemed to benefit a little for
a short time. Extract of malt, whiskey,
and various preparations of the hypophos
■ phites had also been faithfully tried in vain.
The photographs of a large number of
those cured of consumption, bronchitis,
lingering coughs, asthma, chronic nasal
catarrh and kindred maladies, have been
skillfully reproduced in a book of 160
pages which will be mailed to you, on re
