Horse Smashes Automobile
A gentle gray h- rse answering to the
.name of Maud and belonging to "Doc"
Bklllen, has turned the scales on the
automobile, for she literally kicked
one to smithereens last night, and it
1 will take fully $200 to put the machine
Into running order again.
.Maud was hitched in the alley in the
rear of Skillen's, when Frank Thomas
drove out of the garage, running so
rapidly that he could not stop, and so
1-an full tilt into the horse. She re
sented the Infringement of her rights
to quiet Sunday rest and began kick
ing with such force and regularity that
within a few seconds the front wheels,
the radiator, seat and lanterns were
loose and flying in every direction.
Thomas Jumped for his life at the sec
ond klc:.-, and none too soon, as the
third took the seat. It looked like the
funny papers for a little while in the
alley, but finally Maud quit kicking
and resumed her siesta.
Horse Show Plans Develop
Today Frank V. Ryder of the Tour
nament association, who started out
with a subscription paper for a guar
antee fund for the March horse show,
secured in a short time $1050, and with
this promising beginning the financial
success of the venture Is assured. To
night the directors held an important
meeting, discussing and formulating
further details. The dates have been
settled for the 24th and 25th of March.
In million to the fine array of horses
to be entered from the local stables,
it is planned to ask those In the sur
rounding towns and cities who have
exhibition stock to enter It for the dis
play and show. If this Is done It will
mean one of the most spectacular and
brilliant affairs Pasadena has ever
Hold Two Conventions
• Tomorrow evening two political con
ventions will be held. The Socialists
will meet at the board of trade rooms,
and It Is said that a large number will
turn out. The nominal strength of the
party is about 400, although a few
more have been gained through the
annexation of North Pasadena. The
convention of the Prohibition party is
to be held In the city council chamber.
Just what the cold water people are
going to do about their ticket is as yet
a mystery, save for the fact that they
hope to have Rev. C. H. Hobart a
nominee for mayor.
May Be a Candidate
Since the first mention of the spring
election the name of Martin "Weight,
former mayor of the city, has been
named In connection with that office,
but until today no definite reply wan
given by him to the questions as to
hla candidacy. In a long letter given
to the local press today he states that
"he Is In the hands of his friends,"
■which is said to Indicate a tentative
Chief Freeman Returning
Telegrams received from Chief Free
man yesterday state that he was yes
terday a Ruest of the Chicago police
department, where he was able to get
much needed rest. Returning with
Rugby, the alleged bigamist, as his
prlßoner, the chief is ma king several
stopovers at convenient points on his
way, where he can leave his prisoner In
the custody of the police. It is expect
ed that both will reach here Thursday.
To Entertain Mrs. Wllcox

Green as the leading spirit, the ladles

liver oil. There are so-called
extracts, wines and cordials of
cod liver oil that are said to
contain the active principles
but not the oil itself. This is
absurd on its face. You might
as well extract the active prin-
ciples of wheat and make
bread with them. The best
form of cod liver oil, that can
be digested and assimilated
most easily, is Scott's Emul-

, ■ Working Old Swindle
There is evidently a gang of clever
swindlers operating through the United
States mails from points In Spain,
seeking to catch victims in this coun
try on a new version of an old scheme.
George Ely Hall of San Francisco is
said to have been recently caught on
the game to the tune of $1200. Charles
Hanf, a prominent business man of
this city, recently received one of these
letters from Spain, but the bait failed
to catch him. The party. writes from
some point in Spain, the letter being
constructed In broken English, the
writer representing himself to be a dis
tant relative of the party addressed.
The writer represents that he is a pris
oner, in rapidly failing health, and
having an only daughter and a fortune,
he desires to see his daughter com
fortably placed In a home with the
relative before he dies.
•It Is claimed by the writer in the case
of Mr. Hanf that he has deposited In a
New York bank the sum of $230,000. his
entire fortune. If he can make satis
factory arrangements to give his
daughter a home with "the party ad
dressesd he will turn over, one-fourth
of the fortune, # the balance being for
the daughter, who is 16 years of age.
The letter is couched In language
most diplomatic and warns the "rela
tive" against writing him direct, as
the letter would be Intercepted by the
prison 'authorities, and against regis
tering the - letter. The reply must be
placed in a plain envelope addressed
to "Enrique Ruiz Hanf," which is to
be Inclosed in an envelope addressed
"Antonio Purdo, Monterea 29, Madrid."
The letter is ostensibly dated at the
Madrid military prison. Or the "rela
tive" may reply by cablegram.
Conducts Important Experiments
County Bee Inspector R. B. Herron
is about to make some Important ex
periments in this county with lavender
and savory for hon^y plants, under
direction of the department of agricul
ture These two plants grow thriftily
In Southern France, where they are
valuable honey plants. A quantity of
imported seeds has been secured, and
as the climatic conditions here are
quite similar to Southern France, it is
believed they will do well here. If they
can be made to grow successfully it
will solve the honey question here and
give the bees plenty of food the year
around, especially in August, when bee
men now get nothing. The experi
ments arp important and will be
watched with great Interest by aplcul
turists all over this part of the state.
Want Free Roads
The county supervisors this after
noon Hre discussing the free mountain
road matter, it being the expectation
that a decision will be reached this
week on the question of whether the
county will purchase the road of the
Arrowhead Reservoir company or build
a new road on the line surveyed some
months ago. The reports of engineers
engaged for the purpose nil state that
the price asked for the Arrowhead
road. $25,000, Is much less than a new
road could be built for. The matter is
of vital importance to the valley, as at
present the only method by which the
summit can be reached is by traveling
over the toll roads.

Red clover blossoms do not form seed
until the pollen Is thoroughly mixed.
For-thls reason. It Is argued in many
sections of the country, the first crop
of clover. Is a failure as a seed pro
ducer. The bumblebee does not come
from his winter resting place In times
to work on the clover blossoms, and
hence the pollen Is not handled as It
should be to form seeds. In the ear l /
days of agriculture this was merely a
theory. Now It is published as a fact
and not denied by anyone at all fa
miliar with the nature of plant life.
Some Interesting experiments have
been conducted at agricultural . col
leges to demonstrate the value of the
bumblebee in. growing red clover seeil,
Last year at the lowa station patches
of clover heads were covered with
mosquito netting and similar sized
areas left uncovered. The^experlmental
plats were six feet- square. Covered
patches for the first crop gave no Beed,.
while those uncovered returned 10 per
cent of an ordinary crop. For the sec
ond crop the covered plans seeding
were only two, while those uncovered
numbered 612 that produced Beed. .
Plants near the nests of bumblebees
always produce the best crops of seed.
In a space of six square feet over
2000 heads of red clover formed excel
lent seed. The bumblebees hud built
their nests In the clusters of clover
roots. Those who are inclined to kill
every bee that comes about shouM
study the nature of bees and plant
life. .The bees are perfectly harmless.
They never try to wage a warfare on
any person except In defence of their
homes or lives. Let them alone and
they will make the farmer and orchard*
lot rich and thereby help in building
up the country.
