CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THURSDAY AUGUST 6, 1874. Mr. Dana C. Pearson is no longer connected with the Daily and Week ly Herald. All letters and eonirau nicatifms sh «ul-l Leu idre - i J. M. Bassltt, E*dltor-in-Chief What Five Years Will Do. Those who wouhi unuYr*r.»!>.J what may be done in a few year* i -mall piece of land in Los Am.' les Valley, should read the following: 1 year* ago Mr. J. E. Reed purchase I eighty acres of land just west ot the Adams street terminus, for which ho. paid $700. It was bare ground and entirely unimproved. To-day the entire plat Is surrounded on every side with Mon terey cypress. On the north side two rows of trees —one each of cypress and eucalyptus—are set out. Inside of the green walled enclosure is the work of Mr. Reed. His nursery contains 4,000 orange trees that are five years old and 40,000 younger trees, somo of them lime and lemon, but the great majority orange. There is also an or chard of apple, peach and pear trees. The lime grove contains 160 five-year old trees. The proprietor is preparing to set out an orange grove of forty acre 9. The remainder of his land he will plant with other varieties of semi-tropical trees. When irrigation was necessary it was done entirely with water raised by horse power. Mr.RFED has, however, just purchased a large Wilcox steam lifter, which he will use for raising water hereafter. The value of this little piece of ground is perhaps $30,000 or $35,000. The five year old orange trees are worth $2 50 each, to say nothing of the 40,000 smaller trees, the lime grove and the long lines of cypress. It is a valuable and beautiful home, and has all grown out of the ground in five years. What Mr. Reed has done hundreds are doing and thousands may do. But here comes in the question, what are we to do and on what are we to live during the five years our trees are growing ? The answer is, cultivate your ground raise grain and small fruit. Your nursery will take up but a small space, and the remainder of your eighty aere9 you may plow and sow—and reap. This is the way Mr. Reed lived and thrived, and others may do as he has done. The lady sufTerers held a woman auffrage convention in San Francisco the other day, anrl elected Mrs. Wal lis President, and Sallie Hart vice- PresiJent. Dozens of speeches were made, and if the left ear of the tyrant man did not burn, there is no truth in the old saying about the cremation of that organ, while its owner is be ing soundly berated. It was loudly claimed that Local Option had done much more for woman suffrage than all the conventions ever helu. Jf the good sister meant more for the ad vancement of the female's chance to vote we are afraid she was a little mis taken. If she meant by way of dem onstrating, that women could not purify the ballot-box by rallying around it, we are inclined to concur. Between the people of this city and those who furnish them with water there has grown up a slight misunderstanding. Some houses as sert that while they use no more water now than two years ago, their water bill has almost or quite doubled with in that time. A petition was laid be fore the Council some time ago pray ing for an adjustment of the difficulty and it wa9 referred to a committee. The matter has hung fire and people are beginning to wonder if they had better send in another petition. We trust the committee to whom was re ferred the question, will find time to examine it and be able to report at the next meeting of the Council. The world once more moves on, and we feel confident the millenium will not dawn under a fortnight at least. The problem is solved at last, and the work is done by a Nevada newspaper. The Territorial Enterprise says: "A great deal of unnecessary ink and a great deal of unnecessary anger are being expended now-a-days in the proof that General Grant proposes to run for a third term, which is to be followed by a dictatorship for life and the founding of royalty in the United States. We said above unnecessary ink and anger, because we happened to know positively that Grant has no such intentions." Mb. Davis, who comes here with the county right of the Alden fruit drying process, informs us that he will have a building erected and everything in order to commence drying in time for the incoming crop of fruit. It is probable that a number of these evap orators will be in operation in differ ent parts of this valley within the next twelve months. The raisins manufactured in this part of the State by thiß process will become the choice article of the market, not only on this coast but iv Eastern cities. We grow the finest grape in tbe world, and the richer the grape the better tbe raisin. Tbe indications are that we shall soon have an abundance of water on the high ground in tbe western part of the city. Mb. Beaudby's work men are putting down ten thousand feet of cast iron pipe in the place of the sheet iron pipe which was found insufficient to stand the pressure. Tbe sheet iron pipe taken up will be aspnaltum lined and used on tbe high er lands where the prcsaiiro Is light. Within the next three weeks the pipe will all be laid, and very shortly after there will be an abundance of water on tbe highest hills. A late exhibit shows the amount of money pledged on policies by life insurance companies to be $2,245,000, --000. This sum is on 896,000 policies. The profits of tho business are enor mous. Last year the amount over the sum paid to policy-holders exceeded $60,000,000. The Oakland Aewn has found out that Georok C Gokham is to be the regular nominee for Governor,but if it h»9 found out it does not tell us what party Georoe is to lead. The Grand Jury of Alameda counly is the only ono that has paid any at tention to the law. It has indicted fifty-six persons who have defied Lo cal Optiop. An injunction has been issued by the United States Court against the Boston and Fairhaven Iron Works for an infringement of tbe Acme press patent. There are now 1,300,000 Grangers in the United States, and the weekly accessions are estimated at about 1,000. The Death of the "Scale-bug." The following statement will be read with interest : Lake Vineyard, July 24th, 1874. Capt. M. Burrowe, Local Agent " Bab cock Fire Extinguisher" : Dear Sir :—At your request I here with submit, with much pleasure, the result of my experiments with the "Babcock I'ire Extinguisher" as a remedy for tho "Scale-bug." Last year about eight hundred (800) of my orange trees were so badly affected by the "Scale-bug" as almost entirely to arrest the circulation of sap, and after trying freshly-slacked lime, ashes, etc. to kill the bug, but with no success, the thought occurred to me that the " Extinguisher," with certain ingredi ents adtled to the charge, would be the most effective and economical means of securing the desired end. After several experiments in testing the proper proportions and the strength of the charge, I succeeded to my entire satisfaction, and every tree on which I used this com pound was relieved at once. In a few days the bugs commenced drying up, and the first days of Winter cleansed the trees of any vestigeof their terrible enemy. I carefully observed if any in jury was caused the trees by the ap plication, but could not see theslight est; on the contrary the cleansing of the bark and leaves gave them addi tional vigor. From my experiments of last year, I can with perfect confi dence recommend the compound as used through the agency of the "Bab cock Fire Extinguisher " as a cure for the "scale bug," answeringas it does the very essential points of economy, convenience and rapidity. In arrest ing thespread ofthe "Scale-bug" in orange trees, the "Babcock Fire Ex tinguisher" will have achieved a tri umph only second in stopping the rav ages of fire. With regards, I remain truly yours, J. Deßath Shorb. Rancho del Molino, July 25. Capt. M. Bcrrowe: I concur in the above statement as to the efficacy ofthe "Babcock Fire Extinguisher" in destroying the "scale bug" on orange trees, and recommend it to all orchardists as the most economical agent for ridding them of that de structive pest. E. J. C. Kewf.n. San Diego Items. From the Union of August 4. Don Juan N. Marron died at Old Town on Saturday last, in the thirty second year of his age. The deceased was a much respected citizen, and his death is mourned by a large circle of friends. Ab. Ellis came in from Pefiasquitas last night. He says Capt. Johnson's horse, Phil. Sheridan, died from an acute inflammation of the bowels. Sheridan had made the best record of any running horse of his years on the coast, and was worth not less than ten thousand dollars. He would have probably been worth double that sum in a few years. Capt. Frary writes us from Viejas that the Julian road is completed up tho hitherto formidable hill from Valle de las Viejas, and is now ready for teams. He says it will be advisable for the stage to bring on its first trip a light sharp axe, as there is some brush too high for the road-builders to reach that needs cutting off. San Bernardino Items. From the Argus, August 4. It seems from late reports that placer mining in Holcomb district pays well. We are informed that Sam. Rodgers has a number of men at work who take out twenty-live or thirty cents per pan. We understand that the Board of Supervisors will to-day consider the petition presented by a large number of citizens praying that the architect of the Court house be removed from his position or directed to cease inter fering with the contractor. On the premises of Mr. Winkler, an artesian well has been recently bored which affords a bountiful stream of delightfully cool water. With his characteristic spirit of improvement, Mr. Winkler has pipes leading through his whole establishment, aud in every department water, fresh from the fountains of Nature. On his bar he haa a perennial stream which yields 1,440 gallons daily. The progress of the new town of Fresno is very rapid. Business is prosperous there, and a large number of buiiness and dwelling houses are in course of construction. The Sacramento river at Soda Springe aud vicinity, Siskiyou county, is now swarming with salmon, some of them weighing as high as thirty five and forty pounds. R. D. Hopkins of the Benicia Tri bune has purchased an interest in tbe Vallejo Independent. The latter jour nal will be immediately enlarged to double its present size. A gentleman who has had much practical experience ie the business of woolen manufacture, haa visited Val lejo with a view of locating a woolen mill at that place. The projected road from Cloverdale to Lakeport haa been commenced Latest Telegrams. EASTERN. Mr*. Tilton*s TMlimoij. New York, August 4.—A synopsis of Mrs. Tilton's testimony is pub lished. She says Tilton cared little for his family. He often left her en tirely alone, without coal, or foot!, or belp, and was constantly telling in r of his wrong doings with other women. When Beecher bogan visiting their house, Tilton soon became jealous, and in the Winter of 1869 began to accuse her of criminal intercourse with Beecher. She found comfort in Beecher** society, and tried to tell Tilton all their conversations; but he would declare she lied, and was con cealing something, and was always trying to make her confess, saying he had seen her sitting on Beecher's lap. His treatment was harsh and often violent. Tilton confessed criminality with other women. She never con fessed anything of the kind. The let ters used by Tilton were written by him and copied by her when sick and out of her head. She never confessed to Miss Anthony that Beecher and herself had committed adultery, but did tell her that her husband had ac cused them of it. In conclusion, site says that Tilton alone is responsible for the disruption of the family. Tilton has written a letter to the c-i i m mitteecomplaini tig of their course; declaring that lie has no confidence in the result, and that he has determined to place the whole matter before the Courts, and has been instructed by his counsel to hold no further communi cation with the committee. Moulton has returned. He says he will testify if both parties ask it; that as matters have gone so far, all the facts ought to come out. Wool Market. Philadelphia, August 4.—Califor nia wool is quoted at2s@33c, and firm and in fair demand. Last week Col. Eyre of Napa county sent some of his brown and white Leghorn eggs to Ipswich, Massachu setts, to fill an order received from that place. J. R. Bowman was last week acci dentally drowned in Ten-mile creek, Mendocino county, while driving cat tle to Long Valley.
