LETTER BAG. Vanadium and Its Uses. Editors Herald: In your Sunday edition of the 13th ult., I noticed an item under the heading of Mines and Mining, taken from the Yuma Sentinel. I also noticed a abort time ago in the Los Angeles Times a report of tbe fabulous price of vanadium. It seems to me both the Times and the Yuma Sentinel, bo far as the remarks made by them, that they know very little about either the use or value of vanadium. Vanadium was discovered in 1830 by Sefstrom in a Swedish iron, and was ex tracted from the iron from the laburg mineS, not far from lonkiiping. Its name is derived from Vanadia, a Scan dinavian idol. This metal was also fonnd over forty years ago in Mexico, at a place called Zimapan, in combination with lead. Toe finery cinders of laburg contain more vanadium than the iron itself, and today it is supplying all the demands for its use. In 1870, Lightfoot, of th c Broad Oak Print Works, of Accrington, England, gave it all of its present use in dyeing, and it is only used in one color and that is aniline black upon cotton. Its price in 1877 was $27 per ounce; that is the highest price 1 have known it to be, and I have used a good deal of it in my time. In the shape of a salt, by which it is known today as vanadite of am monia, and which is a white powder very much like cream of tartar. 1 have a bottle of it at present. It sells now at $1.75 per ounce. It is controlled by patents by an English firm which have their works at Patricroft near Manches ter, England. It takes tbe place of cop per salts in dyeing and pr.ntmg on cot ton goods only, and only for black, and tbat is coal tar or aniline black: 100 grains of vandium does tbe work of 15 to 2i> pounds of sulphate of copper, and does it better and don't affect the fabric. As far as its use in silk, it is a mistake, for we cannot dye silk a black with either an aniline salt or an aniline oil, and it is also the case with wool, so far. But we cannot tell how long it will be so, for there is no end in sight to chemical research, but so far as fancy colors on silk are concerned vana dium is not used and cannot be. Tin plays a bigger part in these colors than vanadium. Now, sir, it seems to me a great pit/ and a shame to put such things in print as waa put in the Timea, for it has a tendency to tempt men to go in search of vanadium and suffer all the hard ships which an old prospector has to do in such cases, and after all bis labor he finds there is enough and to spare in the market. There are plenty of other metals besides vanadium used in dyeing and printing of fabrics which I think could be found and mixed here in Southern California, and if capital could be put into it it would pay much larger dividends than most of our gold and silver mines of the present day. I might say in regard to the amount of vanadium used I must differ with the Yuma Sentinel. Instead of two ponnds only being used it should be two thousand pounds of it are used annually at the moat, and all of it ia got from the Hamerstag from Swedish iron. W. M. SANTA MONICA. Mr. and Mrs. M. H. Sherman have been called suddenly to San Francisco to the bedside of Mrs. Sherman's mother, Mrs. R. H. Pratt.

Doubtless the readers of our market reportß, says a Florida exchange, have often noticed the phenomenal prices paid for Majori (pronounced Mah-yo-ree) lemons running up to $7.50 per box, while the very finest from Florida fetch only $6 at their best. Majori lemons govern the price of lemons the world over, just as American cotton governs the price of cotton, and Strausburg goose-liver pie governs that article. These lemons are grown on the coast of Italy, about fifty miles south of Naples, and the mode of their cultivation is very peculiar. The method of cultivation at Amalfi, M jori and Minori is different from that in Sicily, Sorrento and elsewhere. There are no plains except one little level piece of ground between the first bill of Majori and the seashore (and there, '00, the trees are trained to trellises aB on the mountainside.) Therefore, on account of the want of level ground all the lesser mountain sides are notched out into terraces, a susporting wall is built from the rock blasted out, and tbe level space tilled in from the "pocket" where the earth, the debris of these calcareous mountains is exceedingly rich. The lemon trees are planted about thirty feet apart in this earth on the level part of the artificial terrace. Next, trellises are erected by upright chestnut poles which comedown horizontally from the wall above. Tbe chestnut poles (from 3 to 4 inches in diameter) are grown on purpose for these trellises. When the tree is large enough and begins to bear, generally in the second and third year, the various branches are attached to and spread out on the trellis roof, so to speak, above. In the fourth and fifth years the trees are bearing profitably. In the months of January and February the lemon growers take evergreen bushes ot small ilex evergreen oak, the arbute and other eh rubs, and throw them lightly on to the top of the above mentioned trellises, thus lightly cover ing the fruit. The result is twofold, viz.: First —The lemons are kept from ripening too fast; in fact, are kept back until warm weather, so tbey are shipped by steamers in May, June and July (just when we want lemons the most), to England and America; the fruit (by this covering of bushes on the trellises) all colors exactly the same, and they have that most beautiful color which artists call "lemon yellow." The growers of Majori lemons would no more think of picking their lemons prematurely and coloring them arti ficially than the Florida grower would think of curing hia choice oranges that way. They color naturally on the tree and are shipped at 'race, as Boon as they can be wrapped and boxed.—[Ex. S. B. HUNT'S FINANCES. He Managed to Get Ahead of Two Banks. The Savings Bank of Southern Cali fornia has commenced suit against tbe estate of the late S. B. Hunt, who at one time was a banker and prominent church member in this city. The suit is for $44,974.39, which, it is claimed was embezzled by Hunt while he was secretary of the Savings bank of South ern California, between the years 1887 and 1889. It appears from statements of those interested that Mr. Hunt virtu ally loaned the bank's money to himself, placing in return securities on deposit. These securities depreciated in value with the fall of the boom, and the stockholders were assessed $10,000 to protect the bank. The statement is also made that the suit is not brought because tbe bank has lost the amount mentioned in the complaint, but simply to provide for the collection of any de ficiency that may arise between the proceeds resulting from the sale of se curities and the amount due the bank from the state. Hunt was also eecretary of the State Loan and Trust company .of which John Bryson, sr.. is vice-president, and it is said that his peculiar methods of finance will result in a small losi to the institu tion, though it is said also that the trust company holds enough securities to make its loss a nominal amount. The dead man is charged with mak ing way with his wife's fortune and that of his stepson, but as he left a life in surance policy of |25,000, Mrs. Hunt is provided for. ANOTHER SAFE CRACKED. The Festive Burglar Still Reaping a Harvest. The grocery store of J. D. Guerrero, 5-15 North Main street, was burglarized on New Year's eve. It was entered through the rear and the safe ransacked. The burglars had an easy job in opening the safe, which was of an old style of manufacture. The curious part of the affair is that after overhauling tbe whole contents of the safe, tbe burglars failed to get hold of a purse containing $105 in gold which Mr. Guerrero had placed within a note book. The booty taken amounts to about $15 from tbe safe, $4 from the till, and jewelry to tbe amount of $15. How to Get Rid of Bideache. Who has not suffered from sideache?

The Old Man in California—The First Printer in California—He Dies in Ven tura Last Week. Don Jose de la Rosa, aged 162 years, died at his borne in this city Tuesday morning of old age, says the Ventura Free Preßa. Hia death, undoubtedly, removes one of the oldest inhabitants on the coaet. He waa born in the pueblo of Loa Angelea, Mexico, Jcnuary 5,1790, and is, therefore, a few days short of 102 years. His early life was spent in varioua pursuits. He worked at the jewelry business, studied for the prieathood, and finally went into the army wben the war of in dependence broke out, and served three yeara, or until 1821. From thia he drifted into a printing office, and the rest of his working days were spent in that pursuit. In 1833 Santa Ana fitted up a printing office and sent De la Rosa to California with it. He located at Monterey, where he remained until 1847. In 1851 H. L. Kamp met the old man, and invited him to spend the rest of his days under his roof. They moved to Ventura in 1880, and the old man has been a familiar figure here since that time. Although spending so many years in California he" could not speak English, and all his conversation waa carried on in his native tongue. In thinking of the life of such an old man one cannot but think of the changes that have taken place during hia life time. He waa a young man at the time of Napoleon's power, saw the rise of a great nation in the United Statea, waa born before railroads were thought of or steamboats built, or telegraphy, or any of the other improvements, now known as necessities, were thought of. His remains were laid away on Wednesday and a large concourse of peo ple paid their respects to his memory. I've used Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup in my family for two years.
