Antipodean Insects of Great
A Question of How Rapidly They Will
Tbe Black Scale Parasite Not Increas
ing Fast-Tbe Vedalla Working
Slowly on the White Boule.
' Other Points.
Horticultural Commissioner John
Scott for several days past has been
watching with a good deal of interest
the piogresß of the propagation of the
latest importation of the new Australian
parasites for the destruction of the black
These parasites are under the direct
charge of Prof. Coquilett, and are lo
cated on Judge Silent's place on Adams
street, and the new parasites for the red
scale are at M. Kercheval'a place. The
black scale parasite, contrary to expec
tations, is not snowing encouraging
signs of reproduction, while the para
sites for the red scale are increasing but
slowly. There is no doubt at all that
the latter feeds voraciously on the red
scale, and tbe question that remains to
be determined is whether it will propa
gate rapidly enough to be of any value.
They do not produce as rapidly as the
Vedalia Cardinalis,andare by no means
as active as the latter insects. The re
cent cold weather, however, may have
had something to do with this retarda
tion. If the present warm spell con
tinues for two or three weeks, however,
Mr. Scott and Prof. Coquilett will have
an opportunity of judging of the value
of these new parasites under better con
They have noticed that the Vedalia
Cardinalis has worked much more slowly
this year on the white scale, although it
is atill doing good work, thia being due
to the cool weather also. Mr. Scott is
sending on an average from eight to ten
colonies of Vedalia Cardinalis per day to
fruit growers in this section. C. May
has also sent two large colonies to the
Bermudas, one large colony to Mexico
and one to Tahiti. A colony will con
sist of from ten to fifty insects, and they
propagate rapidly. Farmers receiving
these colonies are especially requested
to take pains in their care and propaga
tion. Mr. Spott has found that the red
ant is very destructive to small colonies
of the Vedalia, and farmers are cau
tioned against placing them on trees in
fested with the ants, or else take meas
ures to destroy the ants. Mr. Scott is
always ready to (supply colonies to
farmers whose trees are infeßted with
NEARLY A TRAGEDY.
Two Chinamen Quarrel Over the Vege
' table Trade.
Two Chinese vegetable peddlers got
into a row yesterday morning which
might have resulted in a tragedy had
one of them used an ugly looking knife
with a little more precision. The China
men had been selling vegetables to a
lady living on Grand avenue north of
Fifth street, and a serious rivalry had
sprung up between them. Sometimes
one of them thought he bad the beßt of
the competition, and at other times the
other was in high feather over the sale
of two more bunches of radishes than
They had a little row a few weeks ago
about it, but yesterday the Chinamen
met at tbe house, and their eyes flashed
fire. Adjoining the house is a two
story house, No. 422 South Grand ave
nue, into which a Mr. La Fleur and
family were moving. While they were
engaged in putting things to rights
the door suddenly flew open and
the Chinamen rushed in. One of them
had taken refuge in tbe nearest place;
and his assistant, whose name ie given
in the complaint as Cue Sing, flourished
a butcher knife, which had been ground
down to a fine point. He endeavored to
cut his rival, but tbe latter made such
an outcry and the family also, that be
became frightened, dropped the knife
and ran away. He succeeded in cutting
his rival in the hand, but not seriously.
_ The scene was very exciting for a
time, and the occupants of the house
were frightened almost out of their
senses by the wild-eyed Celestials. Cue
Sing had not been arrested up to a late
hour last night.
The IjOS Angeles County Association
The Loa Angeles County Educational
association held its first meeting yester
day in the High school building. The
meeting waa well attended and waa a
very interesting one.
The asaociation originated during th c
late county teachers' inatitute, when
the High school section organized a part
of its members as an association in the
interests of education and to promote
teaching aa a profession. Its meetings
are to be held every eecond Saturday of
the school months. The organization
now numbers ninety. It is not confined
in ita membership to teachera only, but
to residents of the county.
Judging from his experience in edu
cational work, Dr. Leßoy D. Brown,
the preaident of the association, is a
man well suited to launch auch an or
ganization. He has spent his mature
years in the profession of teaching and
superintending. He served a double
term in Ohio as state superintendent of
public instruction. As a member of
and officer in the National Teachers'
association he haa done valuable work.
He is now principal of tbe high school
and superintendent of the other schools
in Santa Monica, which position he
left our own high school to take.
In his address President Brown threw
out a number of queries for the consid
eration of the asaociation. Among them
were the following:
Shall the atate do more or do leas for
public education ?
Ia the course of atudy for public
schools too brief or too extended ?
Are there enough methoda of instruc
tion already, or do the schools need a
greater supply of theae ?
Shall the schools be continued for a
greater length of time than nine montha,
or shall the number of school months
be diminiehed for the year ?
Interesting papers were read by Miaa
E. A. Packard of Loa Angeles on High
School Training and Citizenship, and
by Dr. J. H. Hooae of Paaadena on Lim
itations to Educating the Senses. Both
papers elicited discussion, and were en
joyed by all present.
The county clerk yesterday issued
marriage licenses to the following per
Daniel Krestensen, native of Norway,
aged 23, and Amelia E. Davis, native of
Finland, aged 27.
F. W. Soper. native of New York, aged
28, and Anna Anett, native of Illinois,

The Catbedral Burglar Sent to Folsom
For Ten Year*.
Yesterday morning Judge McKinley
of the superior court sentenced A. E.
McDonald to ten in
Folsom prison for burglary in tbe first
degree. McDonald, it will be remem
bered, was convicted of stealing the
sacred vessels from the cathedral in this
city and melting them down and dis
posing of them as bullion.
When McDonald came np for sentence
his attorney was not present. A motion
for a new trial was made by the pris
oner and overruled and then appealed
to the mercy of the court.
Judge McKinley, in passing sentence,
said that the evidence unerringly
pointed to McDonald as the guilty party,
and he thought it would be for the best
interests of the community and for the
prisoner himself to administer the full
sentence of the law, ten years in Folsom.

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 15, 1892.
Mrs. Bradfleld's Talk About
Its Relation to Industrial Educa
A Practical Talk on the Work—The
Study In Kurope—Guests
or the Club.
At the last meeting of the Friday
Morning club, Mrs. Bradfield, for twen
ty-three years a teacher of drawing and
for eleven years connected with the
public schools of Los Angeles, gave a
practical talk upon Drawing in the Pub
lic Schools, in Its Relation to Industrial
Education. She strongly advocated the
introduction into public schools of the
elements of industrial science, showing
that, since almost every manufactured
article we see about ub waa made from
a design, the study of drawing, "the
alphabet of mechanical science," is of
parmount importance. Thia has been
recognized in France and in England,
where instruction in drawing waa begun
in 1850. In 1870, upon the evidence of
many manufacturers relative to the
scarcity of skilled artisans and native
designs in New England, Massachusetts
passed a law requiring drawing to be
taught in all public schools and free in
struction to be given persons over 15
yeara of age in cities having more than
15,000 inhabitants. Since that time
drawing has been incorporated into the
educational system of nearly every state
in the union. This atudy, in which
children take delight, develops the
sense of form, makes the eye accurate,
the mind observant, and the hand skill
ful, thus laying the foundation for tbe
practical work of the trained mechanic.
Drawing is a universal language, afford
ing a mode of expression common to all
nations; it is of incalculable value in
the study of the sciences, and it culti
vates the mental faculties which enable
ua to appreciate the beautiea of nature
Mra. Bradfield described the admira
ble system of industrial education in the
progressive schools of Wurtemburg,
where drawing ia taught with a distinct
bearing upon the requirementa of trade,
the course embracing advanced geomet
rical and free-hand drawing, modeling
in wax or clay, aketching from the ob
ject, and original work in deaign.
France, too, baa an elaborate and
comprehensive system, that touches
every grade of instruction from the pri
mary acbool up to the National School
of Fine Arts in Paris and the Academy
at Rome. -
In our own country, in the last twenty
yeara, the recognition of the utility of
art has stimulated inventive genius, and
our domestic products are now largely
supplanting foreign importations. To
insure the further development of the
art interests of our industries, our state
board of education should include art
manufacturers, artists, or art amateurs.
Mrs. Bradfield explained her method
of instruction, now used in our public
schools, and exhibited the work of pu
pils in the various grades to show the
gratifying results attained.
Mrs. Hubbard, chairman of the home
and education committee, spoke of the
difficulties attending the establishment
of industrial schools, and suggested
that, since the object of education should
be to fit children for an avocation, and
since the children of the poor especially
need industrial training, the atate,
wbich taxes their parents to maintain
public schools, should either introduce
manual training or open state polytech
nic institutes. Money expended for
education ia more than saved to the
atate by its reduced expenses for crim
inal proceedings. Statistics prove that
the majority of criminals are ignorant
and unskilled. Industrial training may
be costly, but it is certainly less ex
pensive than crime.
Guests of the club were Mrß. R. B.
Joslin and Misa Joslin, Oraige, Cal.;
Mrs. Elizabeth Hughes, Los Angeles,
and Miss Fannie Harloe, San Luis Obis
Next week's programme will be in
charge of the reform and philanthropy
committee. Mrs. Bartlett of Boston,
Mass., is expected to talk about the
work of Mrs. Roger Pryor among the
negroes of Virginia. '
AN INTELLIGENT DOG.
He Looked at Oottrell's Face and was
A very intelligent dog materialized
yesterday afternoon on Second etreet,
between Main and Spring streets. He
looked like a St. Bernard dog, and while
walking along the block discovered a
child's straw hat, which was decorated
with an astonishing assortment of arti
ficial flowers. He picked it up in hia
mouth and made a bee-line to the first
man he saw. Laying the hat down he
spoke to the man by barks, and very
plainly indicated that he wished to have
something done about the matter. The
man laughed and said he waa a fool dog.
The intelligent animal made several
attempts to secure the attention of the?
people to his prize, but without effect
until he ran across S. H. Kingery, who
sympathized with hia evident desire to
restore the hat to its owner. Mr. Kin
gery took the hat, and followed by the
dog went to the police station, where he
left the highly ornamental article. The
dog reared up on hiß hind feet and
looked Police Clerk Cottrell fairly in the
face aa he stood at tbe window. He
seemed a little in doubt whether or not

The Eminent Chinese Physician.
Dr. Woh's life work has been from early youth one of persistent and untiring
observation, study and investigation, as fully as lay in his power to perfect him
self in all branchas of the art of healing human sickness and disease. Born in
China, of influential parents, of a family whose ancestors have been for genera
tions deservingly renowned as leading physicians, Dr. Woh naturally followed in
the footsteps of his fathers. In China he has practiced his profession for several
years, being at one time a physician in tbe Imperial Hospital, and in America for
a long time his great number of patients, his wonderful and many cures, and the
great list of lettera from grateful and thankful patrons now prove him to be a
remarkable and successful healer of sickness and all diseases.
