Does the Dry Spell Mean Anything? Lieutenant John E. Finley's View of the Matter. The Japan Current the Canse of the Present Drouth. Southern California Is Not Necessarily Linked with the Great Northern Cit rus Belt as to Its Rainfall. A Sau Francisco paper publishes the following views from Lieutenant John R. Finley, U. S. signal service officer at San Francisco: "ffhe most striking feature of the weather for the month of October has been the marked deficiency in rainfall throughout the Pacific coast states. "The oldest inhabitant does not re member a drier fall than the present. That of 1871 was a remarkably ciy sea son. Only .07 of an inch of rain fell that October, and an inch or more in No vember; The fall of 1887 was exception ally dry, there being no rainfall in Oc tober, and not more than .03 of an inch at most fell before the middle of No vember. Last year there was an exces sive rainfall in October, though the first half of November was as dry and mild as is the case this year. In October of 1889 the rain began on the 17th and con tinued with but two exceptions—Octo ber 19th and 24th—until the last day of the month. During that period there was nearly 6.50 inches of rain, the daily average being .52 of an inch. The same cloudless skies and warm sunny days that the Sacramento valley is enjoying at present began last year with the Ist day of November and continued until thanksgiving night., "The cause of this decrease in precipi tation this year is to be found in the falling off in the number of storms which have entered the northern Pacific coast from the Japan current, and more especially to the fact that these storms have passed eastward at a higher latitude than in previous years. The extraordinary rainfall in October of 1889 was due to the extreme southerly position of the rain paths. The storm paths this year tpok a more northerly direction, passing eastward through British Columbia and Canada. The amount aud distribution of rainfall de pendent upon the latitude of the storms from the Japan current, is one of the most important features of Pacific coast weather. "From October 15th to November 15th, last year, the temperature was about an average of ten degrees lower than for the corresponding period this year. The highest'maximum tempera ture in that period last year was on November 4th, when the' mercury got its back up as high as 77 degrees. The lowest minimum temperature was reached November 14th, at 49 degrees. Since the middle of last month the high est maximum temperature reached was 83 degrees; the lowest minimum, 48. "It is worthy of note that in the sea sons of 1871-72 and 1879-80, the falls of which were noted for their dryness, the rainfall was nearly up to or beyond the* average. The average rainfall for the past forty seasons has been 23.5 inches. In 1871-72 the rainfall was 21.45 inches, and in 1879-80, 27.61 inches. "The indications arc, that the rainfall of this season will not fall much, if any, below the average, and from the fact that the Japan storm current is gradu ally working its way south there is every reason to believe that the rain will soon be with us." Of course all the above refers to the central and northern part of the state. It does not necessarily refer to Southern California at all. The only element in it that is connected with this section is the Japan current. That affects more or less all parts of the coast. The season has been dry all over the coast this fall, and therefore the working of a law more or less applicable to the whole coast is indicated. To show the complexion of our climatic conditions, the following table, covering a period of nearly twenty years, is sub mitted, giving the rainfall by seasons, in inches, in Los Angeles city: 1873-74, 24.78; 1874-75 , 21.07; 1875-76, 26.47; 1876-77, 5.28; 1877-78, 21.26; 1878-79, 11.35; 1879-80 , 20.34; 1880-81, 13.13; 1881-82, 10.40; 1882-83,11.75; 1883-84, 38.22; 1884-85, 9.25; 1885-S6, 22.58; 1886-87, 13.76; 1887-88,14.01; 1888-80, 19.25; 1889-90,34.84. The average for seventeen years is 18.725 inches per sea son. Now let us see when the rains be gin here. For twelve years the dates of the first rains are December 28, Octo ber 12,-October 8, October 25, Octo ber 1, October 4, October 9, October 16, October 19, September 26, October 17, August 31. With rare exceptions the rains falling before November have been of little significance. The rain of August 31, 1889, was abnormal. It amounted to over half an inch and is without parallel in our records. In fourteen years the rains of September have been of no value. In only four of them was there any rain, and in none of these did there one-fifth of an inch fall. Of fourteen Octobers none have been dry ; but in only two of them did the rain amount to an inch. In one of these an inch and a half fell, and in the other, that is last year, the downpour was an abnormal one of very nearly seven inches. The past September and October were quite up to ■ the average, if October a year ago be omitted from the calcula tion. Taking up November, it will be found that in 13 years two have been ab solutely and about half of them produced a full inch or more of rain. The average for the 13 yours is one inch and a half. Five and a half inches is the maximum for the month. In the season of 1883-4 there was a heavy rainfall in October, none in November, but the season was the wettest on record except one, the total being 38.22 inches. In 1885-6 there was a little rain in Oc Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889. Qcjfa\ Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, 1890. tober, 6.55 inches in Novemberand 22.58 for this season, most of it falling after the last of December. In 1878-9 there was hardly a sprinkle in October, and none in November, but the season re sulted in a liberal precipitation of over twenty inches. So one may go over the whole list of years and he wili find little connection down here between light early rains and a dry year. December may nearly always be relied upon for liberal rains, the month never entirely failing us, and only partially so three times out of thirteen. In all cases where the precipitation of December was light, that of the year was so, >but even in these years there was enough to mature a crop. This is the more remarkable from the fact that all these three years, the rainfall of Oc tober and November was light. But that is one of the most notable facts about our seasons, viz., that an inch of rain after the first of January is better than two inches before that date, and one inch in March is worth five in No vember. It is the late rains that count with us, and it is these that never fail us. At least,they h«ve not «Uwie so for seventeen years. January, February, March and April are always to he relied upon, the last named being more so than October or even Novem ber. If the rains come late the dry feed continues to be good until it is all con sumed by the stock, and the seeds lie dormant until the cold weather is mostly past, and when they do germin ate they develop without any drawback, and come to a higher perfection. A careful comparison of the sec tion south of Tehachepi with that north of the Pass reveals the im portant fact that there is no essential connection between the weather in the two sections. They often have a dry year when we have plenty of rain. In fact, Southern California is the most re liable region in the world so far as rain fall goes. BEXLEY IN THE SOUP. The Willett Arrest the Cause of Two Defeats at the Polls. Martin G. Aguirre is not the only sheriff who has gone into the coup tureen because of the peculiar way in which Nathan Willett, of Norwalk, was arrested by him, and by reason of the astonishing way in which he, at Colton, parted company with the officer from Lee county, who had him in charge. Brother-in-law Ball, to whose affection ate care for the welfare of his wife's brother all this is due, has written a letter from Giddings, Texas, to the Times, in which he says that Sheriff Bexley, the man who had Willett in charge, has likewise tumbled into the Says brother-in-law Ball, in speaking of Willett's unceremonious departure: "His escape at Colton contributed greatly to the defeat of Bex ley's re-elec tion as sheriff of this (Lee) county, as many voters charge it to an inexcusable want oi caution, if not to criminal neg ligence." Ball blames the Herald for the ex pressions of sentiment of the people at the ballot box, which defeated those two candidates who were willing to accom modate, the public by filling their own fat offices for another two years' term. Brother-in-law Ball, you are "way off." The people of Los Angeles county had had enough of the present incumbent and his office run "a fa moda del paes." Probably for the same reason the people of Lee county thought they might dis pense with a. sheriff who .'couldn't con trol a manacled prisoner. That Ball's letter is in very bad taste is undoubted, for he therein assails a long-suffering wife, who had to resort to the courts to obtain redress from his barbarity. In conclusion, this amiable brother-in law regales the readers of the morning contemporary with the contents of the indictment found against Willett in 1872, for having killed one P. H. Woodward, by shooting him. He fails to say that Woodward struck Willett on the head from behind with a big pistol, at night, and that the accused could have pre sented a very good case of self-defense to the jury. The only question that Ball does not explain is why he did not play the informer against Willett many years ago, instead of first marrying and then abusing his sister. Ball "peached" against him out of revenge, and for no other reason. SANTA MONICA. News Notes and Personals from the Seaside. The delightful weather continues, and the winter guests are beginning to ar rive, taking up the cottages one by one. Considerable property is changing hands here ; the fact is that real estate is at bed-rock, and investors are begin ning to realize that there are no better places to buy than at Santa Monica. Among those of the past few days are E. D. Suits, the proprietor of the Cen tral market, who has purchased a lot on Third street, between Oregon and Ari zona avenues, which he will commence to improve immediately by erecting a home for himself and family thereon. The Steele brothers have purchased two lots on the corner of Utah avenue and Fifth street, which they will improve by erecting a brick building on it. The improvement at the Soldiers' home will be great the coming winter. Over $100,000 wili be spent thereupon public buildings, etc. Thu fishermen are having great luck with their seines,but prices still continue low; it seems a shame that they get the miserable pittance of three cents a pound, when the consumer, in Los An geles is compelled to pay fifteen cents. There is certainly an injustice which ought to be righted some way. An English gentleman here is making a very toothsome article of smoked her rings which he is about putting on the market. Santa Monica is the ineoca for the newly married to spend tlieir honey moon. Last week we had a good round doze#, and this week at least half a dozen.

The Law Requires that Voters' Names Must Be Registered. It is stated on good authority that the county clerk has issued 800 certificates of registration since the great register has been closed. These are intended to take the place of a supplement. It is not to be understood, however, that this will be effective, as section 1227 of the Political Code provides that if the name of a voter is found on the register in use at the precinct where the vote is offered, and the vote is not re jected upon a challenge, the inspector or judge acting as such, must in tlie presence of the board of election, place the ballot without opening or examin ing it in the ballot box. And no person shall be allowed to vote whose name is not on said register in use at the pre cinct. HELLO-MANIA. A Young Man Who Went Crazy From Hearing the Telephone Ring. "Can I use your telephone?" This question was asked of Mr. Valen tiner by a young man who entered his drug store at the corner of Clinton and John streets yesterday afternoon. "Certainly," said Mr. Valentiner, pointing to the instrument; "go ahead." "But 1 haven't any money." "That's all right; I'll charge it to your brother," said Mr. Valentiner. Something in the man's appearance attracted the attention of a Cincinnati Enquirer reporter who happened to be in the store at the time. The young man clutched the 'phone with a trem bling hand and giving a quick, sudden ring shouted hoarsely into the micro phone : "Give me 43,000! No, that ain't the number. What's Stella's number? I know it's in heaven, but what's the number?" By this time the reporter's astonish ment was almost uncontrollable, but strange to say, Mr. Valentiner did not seem to share it, he simply whispered: "Wait!" "I've been waiting long enough," he shouted again. "I tell you, give me Stella. No, I can't find the number. No, I won't wait, I won't wait, I won't. I won't," And in a frenzy he dashed the 'phone against the wall and rushed from the store. "There is one of the strangest cases of insanity on record,'' Baid Mr. Valen tiner, when the writer had somewhat recovered from his surprise. "That young man was as sane as you or I five years ago. His name is John Ricker hoff, and he lives here in the west end. Five years ago he was shipping clerk for a New Vi rk exporting house. He had become so worried, being of an excess ively nervous temperament, by the con stant ringing of the telephone all day in his ears, that though sane on all other subjects, he is crazy on this, aud runs into drug stores and uses telephones in a nervous, unstrung manner, calling the name of a former sweetheart, long since dead. His case is a curious psychological study." DAILY REAL ESTATE RECORD. Saturday, Nov. 15,1800. transfers.

Much stress has been placed tipo k a method of preparing, or rather preserv ing, cows* milk, known as "steriliza tion." As the milk exists in the healthy cow's udder it is aseptic, i. c., free from any poisonous or dangerous ingredient; but during milking, and subsequent han dling and transportation, particles of manure or various forms of dirt get into It, and are apt to set up fermentation or other injurious changes. To deprive these accidentally introduced organic impurities of their activity, or, in other words, to sterilize, it is necessary to sub ject the fluid to high heat underpressure. Several admirable implements have been devised for conducting the process. One is of tin, and consists of an oblong case provided with a well fitting cover and having a movable, perforated false bottom, which stands a short distance above the tale one, and has attached a framework capable of holding ten six ounce nursing bottles. On the outside of the case is a row of supports for hold ing inverted bottles while drying, and at the proper distance below these is a gut ter for carrying off the drip. A movable water bath iB hung to the side, in which each bottle of food may be heated at the time of administration. The bottles are mado ot flj nt giagg an a graduatea, the markings being specially convenient for measurement, and render ing the use of a separate measuring glass unnecessary, a matter of no little mo ment, as every implement that comes in contact with the milk in sterilization must be kept chemically clean. Ten bot tles are used, so that the whole supply of milk intended for a day's consump tion can be prepared at once. Each bot tle is provided with a perforated rubber cork, which in turn is closed by a well fitting glass stopper.—Louis Stan-, M. D. A Woman's lSusiiicss College. Miss Mary F. Seymour, the energetic editor of The Business Woman's Jour nal, proposes soon to organize a woman's business college. She says it will be the outcome of the Union School of Stenog raphy and Typewriting which she has so successfully conducted for ten years. In Miss Seymour's opinion girls will be more apt to enter a college with the pros pect of a diploma than merely graduate from a "school" and have nothing to show for it in the end. Probably no business woman in the country has en countered incompetency oftener than Miss Seymour, and it is this fact that inspired the idea of a training school for business women. Notwithstanding the enormous supply there is a great demand still for stenographers and typewriters of skill and education. "Every woman, however," said Miss Seymour, "is not adapted for stenography and typewrit ing." No matter how well educated a woman may be, she certainly would not have a great success in stenography if her hearing was imperfect, but she might, if judiciously trained, become a first class proof reader or correspondent. This new college will be opened some time this fall.—New York Press. She Deals in Molasses Barrels. One of Mrs. Paran Stevens' tenants is Mrs. Helen Ackernian, who for the last seven years has managed a livery stable in West Forty-fifth street. This pretty, black eyed "liveryman" is a New Yorker by birth. Mrs. Mary A hern, of West Thirty eighth street, buys empty barrels/ 1 kegs and casks at eight cents and sells them for twenty cents each. She averages 500 sales a week, the profits of which content her sixty years. For almost forty years she has lived in her present-home, which she owns. The small boys in the neighborhood delight to crawl into the 'lasses and sugar barrels for sweets, and after sur feit mischief follows. At the request of the mild mannered barrel broker the interests of Policeman Big Morrisy were enlisted, who made an impression on the tiny vagrants and also on the barrel dealer's daughter. In stead of succeeding her mother in tho business Miss Ahem married the stal wart, who has since been transferred to the Broadway force.—New York Letter. New Idea in Mourning Stationery. Some attempt has been made, I notice, to modify the hitherto unredeemed hide ousness of mourning stationery, says The Lady's Pictorial. The new idea is a curious one and consists of a single black triangle in a corner of otherwise white note paper and envelopes. I can not say that the effect strikes me as par ticularly elegant or attractive, but the new notion deserves to be welcomed, if only because its general adoption would finally dispose of the vulgar and absurd custom still observed by many people of regulating the depth of the mourning border on their stationery by the near ness of the relative whose loss it indi cates.

The Population of the United States in 1890. Superintendent of Census Robert P. Porter's first report of the eleventh cen sus is at hand. It says that the work of tabulation is being rapidly pressed for ward, and will be practically finished by the end of the year. The population of the United States on June 1, 18(H), as shown by the first count of persons and families, exclusive of white persons in Indian territory, Indi ans on reservations, and Alaska, was 02,480,540. These figures may be slightly changed by later and more exact com pilations, but such changes will not be material. In 1880 the population was 50,155,783. The absolute increase of the population in the ten years inter vening was 12,324,757, and the percent age of increase was 24.57. In 1870 the population was Btated as 38,558,371. Ac cording to these figures the absolute in crease in the decade between 1870 and 1880 was 11,597,412, and the percentage of increase was 30.08. Upon their face these figures show that the population has increased be tween 1880 and 1890 only 727,345 more than between 1870 and 1880, while the rate of increase lias apparently dimin ished from 30.08 to 24.57 per cent. If these figures were derived from correct data, they would be indeed disappoint ing. Such a reduction in the rate of increase in the face of the enormous immigration during the past ten years would argue a great diminution in the fecundity of the population or a corresponding increase in its death rate. These rgures are, however, easily explained when the character of the data used is understood. It is well known, the fact having been demonstrated by extensive and thorough investigation, that the census of 1870 was grossly deficient in the southern states, so much so as not only to give an exaggerated rate of increase of the popu lation between 1870 and 1880 in these states, but to affect very materially the rate of increase in the country at large. There is but little question that the population of the United States in 1870 was at least 40,000,000, instead of 38, --558,371, as stated. If this estimate of the extent of the omissionß in 1870 be correct, the absolute increase between 1870 and 1880 was only about 10,000,000, and the rate of increase was not far from 25 per cent. These figures compare much more reasonably with similar deductions from the pomilation in 1880 and 1800. In the principal table of the bulletin of which this article is a synopsis, the states are grouped as North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Northern Central, Southern Central and Western. The North Atlantic section is primarily a manufacturing section. As a necessary result of the predominance of manufac turing there ia a great develop ment of urban population. Indeed, more than half of the inhabitants are grouped in cities. The predominant industry of the Northern Central states is agriculture, although in many of tbese states manufactures are now acquiring prominence. The in dustries of the South Atlantic and Southern Central sections are still al most entirely agricultural, while in the Western states and territories the lead ing industries are agriculture, mining ami grazing. Referring to the states on the Pacific coast the superintendent's report says : The growth of Washington has been phenomenal, the population in 1890 being nearly five times that of 1880. As is shown by the state census taken in 1885, this growth has been almost en tirely during the last five years of the decade. The inducements which have attracted settlers are in the main its fertile soil and ample rainfall, which enable farming to be carried on without irrigation over almost the entire state. The growth of Oregon, though less rapid, has been at a rate of nearly 80 per cent during the past decade. The numerical increase has been 137,722, of which over four-fifths has been ac quired during the past five years. The additions to its population are mainly in the valleys of the Columbia and Will amette rivers. California, which in creased 54 per cent during the decade between 1870 and 1880, has maintained during the past decade a rate of increase of 39 per cent.' This increase, though widespread throughout the state, has been most marked in its great cities and in the southern part.
