See advertisement of diamond ring lost, for the return of which a reward of Slot) will be [iaid and no questions asked. A motion for the revocation of the will of Mateo Lanfranco was over ruled ii) the Probate Court yester day. The plats or T. 4 S., 8 W. and 5 S., 0 W., situated in San Bernardino coun ty, are now on tlic iv the TJ. S. Land Otlice. Parlies who wish to pre-empt claims in that locality will do well to make a note of this fad. Mr. John Knot well, agent for the Union (las Machine, will leave for San Bernardino to-morrow and will l*e absent, from the city about a week. During his absence persons desiring information relative to the gas ma chine arc requested to call on Swigart it Hubcr, Main street. The corner of Main and Commercial streets is to have a bran new sidewalk. Judging by that already constructed, it will be neither very elegant, conve nient nor durable, built as it is of light boards. We trust that our city is not to be inflicted with many of these walks under the new improvement ordinances. The gap in tile grade across the cation at tbe junction oi* Temple aud Olive streets was closed yesterday liy Mr, Beaudry's workmen. The lillhas now been made so heavy that it will admit the passage ot* a double team. Mr. Beaudry and Mr. Potts are doing a good work for the city In grading the streets Iv that quarter and their heavy expenditures will soon be re warded by a first-class thoroughfare. Itev. W. H. Hill Will deliver a lec ture at the Congregational Church to night before the teachers of the Insti tute and friends of education. After the lecture, the audience will adjourn to the.GoOd Templars' Social, where some pleasing literary exercises and soeal entertainment will await them. One of the features of the occasion will be an original poem read by Mr. A. T. Hawlev. OIIOS. Miller, the man who perpe trated the t belts of clothing and jew elry at Ihe United States Hotel in August and September last, was yes terday sentenced to the State Prison for two years on a conviction of house-breaking. He met his trial with wonderful coolness and effront ery, but the chain of evidence übout him was too strong to be controverted, and he was oldiged to accept the hos pitalities of San Quentln. A saddlery and harness store of our city yesterday completed the outfit of forty-four mules to be used in the freighting business to l'anamint. The teams are the property of Parker & Anderson who have a heavy contract from Stewart it Jones for the transfer of freight from Spadra to the new mining district . The road adopted for freighting will be from Spadra via San Bernardino. Some of the teams will leave the oity to-day for their first trip. As an instance of the progress of the city of Los Angeles and the constant ly increasing value of real estate here, we otl'er the following which came to our knowledge yesterday:* About a year ago some, San Francisco capital ists sent an agent to this place to loan money on real estate security. One of our leading citizens applied for a loan of $.',,000 on the installment plan for live years, and as security offered ninety-eight city lots which lie owned on Temple street. The proposition was declined as the security was deemed Insufficient. Since that time, the gentleman has sold four of the lots for the neat sum of $0,140 and has the other ninety-four on a rapidly increas ing market, and no thanks to the cap italists, money. It is but justice to say that the property was thus en hanced in value by the late improve ments which have been made by private enterprise in grading Temple street. CURIOSITIES WANTED. It is considered that we have enough to brag of in our country without in dulging in hyperbole, but now ami then a Murk-Twain story will get out, audit is best nailed at once by our own citizens, as in the following <iaae: M Meat hung up iv the air of Los Angeles dries up, but never rots." "The peach bears a peck in the sec ond yeur from planting the pit".— Tru man and Nordhoff. Col. J. J. Warner, our acknowledged authority as the "oldest inhabitant," <iow comes forwurd and offers a re ward of ten collars for a bushel of the above decscribed air and one dozen of the pits from that peck, or live dollars lor one or the other. We score one for the Colonel. The Virginia Enterprise has appear ed in a new dress. TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. [second day.] TI'KSDAY, Nov. Mill. The Institute was opened at 10 a. It. with prayer by Rev. Dr. I.ueky, t'min ty Superintendent, Geo. IT. Peck, pro siding. After the opening, the In stitute proceeded to the transaction of the business in hand. The minutes of the previous meeting wen- read and corrected by adding Miss Ada Dei Granges to the Commute on Music Adopted with correction. On motion, Messrs. 11. A. Snxe and H. J. Morgan were added to the Com mittee on Music. The following resolution was then introduced by Dr. Lucky: Resolvtd, That the husbands ami wives of teachers, the teachers of pri vate schools, the city Hoard of Educa tion and the ministers and editors of the city and county of I.os Angeles be elected honorary members of the In stitute. The resolution was unanimously adopted. Mr. Kobt. PuHeßg of Orange was appointed Sargeant-at-Arins to receive and seat visitors. Mr. R. B. Warren and Miss E. Ben sough were appointed critics of the day by t he President. Superintendent Peck then pro ceeded to deliver an interest ing address, noticing the pro gress and promising condition of the public Schools throughout the county. There has been a noted increase of at tendance of the Spanish element. E< ferrlng to the La Puente school, be said: • At my last visit there, over forty pupils were present. Bxceplug about a half a dozen, the children are Spanish. It is scarcely four months since the third division, third grade, a heavy class of Spanish, began the alphabet. They arc now nearly ready to go into the second reader. The school house, but recently an over grown building, is too small. This favorable revolution has been occa sioned by an active teacher,supported and assisted by stirring and intelligent, trustees. It is a mistake to suppose that there is any class in this county, that cannot be reached aud elevated by the schools. The increase of school children in this county for the year has been over one thousand. It is believed that our population is growing faster than that of any other agricultural county. A large number of the most desirable elements in various pasts of tlic East are looking to Southern California, and especially to Los Angeles county, willi a view to emigration. A leading solicitude with them is not alone the quality Of our land, but the quality of our schools. Oood land, its accesso ries and a perfect climate they think of inferior value if the moral and in tellectual culture of their children is to be neglected. The Importance of the school iv attracting population is fully recognized by many of our lead ing real estate capitalists. Kirs. E. S. Onstott, of the San Pedro school, then introduced as a subject for discussion, " The Word-met hot I of Instructing young children." She gave her experience at length in sup port of the system. She found that the old method of teaching the A-B-C first, did not succeed witli her pupils. She adopted the word-method and found that her pupils improved more rapidly. Mr. Whaling, of La Puente, said that his school was almost, exclusively made up of Spanish children who knew little or no English. He had taken a class of 40 pupils who did not know a letter and in four months they could read in the Second Reader. He used the word-method exclusively. Mr. S. A. Waldron testified to the superiority of this method over all others. Mr. Saxon regarded Mr. Whaling's success as something extraordinary. He stated that he did not confine him self to teaching his class reading alone, but had taught them the ele ments of geography and grammar and the rudiments of arithmetic. The question was further discussed by Messrs. Morgan, Lucky, Hender son and Miss Hall, and a final vote being taken on the merits of the sys tem, the result was a majority in fa vor of the word-method. The Institute then adjourned for dinner. The afternoon session was opened at 1 v. >t. with singing. A discussson then ensued on tho best method of teaching pupils good manners and morals. The question was discussed by Itev. J. Devino M. Whaling, S. A. Waldron, Dr. Lucky and Superintend ent Peck. On motion,all speakers except those introducing the subject were limited to live minutes each. After a short recess, Dr. Lucky de livered an address on "School Gov ernment," advocating frieudly rela tions lie) ween teachers and pupils and condemning the artificial, strict form of decipline often employed. In his opinion the best governed schools are the least governed. Give tho pupils plenty to do, arouse their en thusiasm and interest them in their studies and your school will govern itself. He would make corporal pun ishment a last resort, but would not like to undertake to manage a school in which he was not allowed io punish for any olfeiise. Tho proposal to bring before the In stitute a class in orthography, as fa vored by last year's resolutions, was then discussed spiritedly'and at some length. Mr. Saxon then favored the Insti tute with some select readings, includ ing " The Frenchman and ihe Hats," "A Yankee in Love," and "Mrs. Cau dle on Shirt-buttons." The selections were well read and heartily applauded. Tho Secretary read a communica tion from Merrill Lodge No. 209. I. O. O. T., inviting the members of the In stitute to attend a social at Good Tem plars' Hall Wednesday evening, No vember 11th. The invitation was ac cepted. Mr. Guinn then read the programme for Wednesday, which was as follows: Morning—Musicj spelling, by Bixby's class; address by Prof. F. S. Can - .* Recess. Best methods of teach ing local geography, by Prof. W. P. McDonald. Afternoon—Music; use of numbers instead of names in school work, by R. 11. Warren; Miss F. L. Hawks' class in elocution. Recess. Lecture by Prof, t'arr, on »• Chemistry of Com mon Things." The Institute then adjourned till 8 a. MY, Wednesday. KILLED BY A LITTLE CHILD. We learn of a painful accident which occurred iv Los Nietos lust Monday evening and which yesterday morning resulted fatally to the chief participant in the affair. The report slates that a colored man who had been for a long time in the employ of a family living at that place, was playing with the children of his em plover on Monday evening, nnd to amuse them took a small pistol and after removing the cartridge allowed them to snap the lock, pretend ing to shoot each other. After divert* fug themselves for some time iv this way, the man took tin: pistol away, replaced the cartridge nnd hid the weapon, as bethought, out Of the little ones'reach. Ilc then busied himself about other matters, and in the mean time one of the children—a little boy thinking to have some more Sport with the dangerous plaything, took it from the place where it had been laid away, and, unnoticed by the colored man", cocked tiie weapon, placed it at the man's side and pulled the trigger. The cartridge exploded, driving the ball Into the body of the unfortunate man and Inflicting a wound from which he died on Tuesday morning. The parents of the children are deeply grieved at the result of tho unfortu nate atl'air, and in one family, at least an important lesson h:is been incul cated regarding the use of lire-arms playthings. LETTER FROM NIETOS. The Tawn Still Planrlahes BnlMHsnj Haw Hotel Two Trains » Day— fenhtinth Scliool Comccii. Editor Herald: Because no one lias been writing up Nietos or Downey City lately, it don't follow that it does not flourish and grow, for to-day, while passing along I lie street, I note four houses in course of erec tion and various other Improvements, such as street-grading, etc., all Indi cating a healthy and prosperous con dition of the place. Business is very active and t he enormous crop raised In this section is now placing in circula tion a large amount of money. 1 was to-day shown through the hotel now in course of erection by Mr. Venable. The plan Is good, the work first-class, the rooms large and airy; and while the bouse is an ornament to the place, it will accommodate some of the visitors to your city who may prefer the freedom of the country to the city while stopping in the county. It will be finished in about ten days, and we understand will be under the proprietorship of Mr. J. T. Carney—a man of long experience in the business. It is reported that there will be two daily t rains to this place on and after Monday next. If this is true, it will afford good opportunity to the people of your city to visit this beautiful and thriving Village and return on the same day, and I think many will avail themselves of the privilege of seeing this woderful valley. I had a visit from M r. Keller, of Kel ler A*, Co., Sacramento, last week, who says this valley surpasses in beauty and fertility anything he ever saw. He says hail In- never seen its wonder ful productions and "that beet," he never could hdve believed what he has heard aud read of this country. He says if he were to hear of coin growing on willows, he would not, doubt it now. 1 understand that the members of the Los Nietos Sabbath School will give a concert at an early day to raise funds to buy a new and larger organ. Doubtless your city will be waited on by some of the fair ticket-venders. If they call on you, Mr. Editor, take a ticket right away, and they'll try to sell you a dozen. Business around the depot this week has been very light: not quite enough to keep employes awake. l'ou will hear from me Anon. Nietos, November Bth. THE PRELIMINARY LiNE. From a private letter received from Engineer Crawford of the Los Angeles and Independence Hall road, wo ex tract the following points of interest concerning the preliminary survey now making: * ! 1 have moved Toy camp down to the forks of the canon, eight miles South of the summit and have landed my summit grade in the hot torn of the valley, using a descending gradient of about 140 feet per mile, which is a very material reduction from my report, and establishes the feasibility of the Cajon Pass as a rail road gangway beyond a perndventure. I take it that a gradient of 140 feet per mile with goo 1 alignment, in a region destitute of snow and ice, is fully as advantageous as 126 feet per mile used upon railroads for the North, passing through the snow belt. In locating my summit I have adopted a sharp depression in the ridge about three miles further East towards the Hoi comb road, and Northwest from Fears' house. Venison is plenty in camp; the hoys knocked over two fat bucks the other day. On Wednes day we were visited by a wind and rain storm which blew down our tent and Blooded us with rain iv the dark mid night hours; nevertheless we still live, and the boys are all well and hearty. Yours in great haste, Ckawkokd. San DeruardinQ, November Bth. Vandalism. Mr. Reyes A. Serrano was lately the victim of an act of vandalism, the per petrators of which should be made an example of Oil. being identified. Mr. Serrano returned last week from the Monserate ranch in San Diego county, bringing with him ten horses for the Alt so ranch. On Friday of last week he missed bis horses and started immedi mediately in search of them but he could not rind them. Saturday he sent two horsemen to look for them with the same result. On Sunday he started in the direction of the Cienega de San Joaquin, about a mile from Tustin City. There he found a horse and a mare, both wounded, the former with two aud the latter with one rifle shot. At about lour hundred yards from Mr. Flatt's house he found two of his horses, both dead, one with three shots and tin; other witli one. Monday he continued his search iv company with a vaqueru, and about two hundred yards from Plait's house he found the*"insides"of another of his horses. It appears they had taken away the meat from the carcass, but a piece of hide which he saw leaves no doubt that it was one of his horses. They found, besides, the tracks of a wagon and calling a neigh bor named J. Ross, they followed the tracks to a point near the house of Halt, where they found the wagon stained with blood, clear proof that in it the vandals hud conveyed the re mains of the beast. Of course Mr. Piatt denies being the author of such a cowardly act. After leaving the premises Mr. Serrano found another of his horses dead, k'l'he total result foots up us follows: They killed four of his animals, wounded two, two were found and two still missing. The horses were all well broken and very useful, t hereby causing a great loss to Mr. Serrano. We hope the criminals will be overtaken by justice and dealt with according to their deserts. — La C runted.
