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.

THE FINEST LEMON.
What a Florida Paper Says of the
Majori.
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? We all
had it when we ran r.ces at school—we have It
when we overwork ourselves at any age. It
tomes on, as everybody knows, suddenly. By
using one of Alleoek's po ous piasters it goes
away nearly as quickly. F Koessner. of No.
556 Wes;. Fif cy-ehihth street, New York, says:
'It ls with pleasure 1 write these lines in
teslimony to the powers of Alleoek's porous
plasters. I have been « me what annoyed with
serious pains in my sides, for which several
medicine!'have been prescribed, but ton • avail,
but through the advice of a friend I tried two
Alleoek's porous plasters, and the relief they
have given ma is both satisfactory and aston
ishing. 'To any one annoyed with pains these
plasters are a certain remedy."

AN OLD PRINT.
JOSE DB ROBA LIVES OVER A
CENTURY.
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.
