The Inyo Independent sivys that the
recent discoveries in tlie new Coso dis
trict are simply enormous in their ex
tent and value. These mines are forty
miles southeast of the foot of Owens
Lake, seven miles east of tho Inde
pendence and Panamint stage road,
and about eight miles west of the head
of Darwin Caftan. They are easily
accessible by wagon.
Mr. McComas, one of our most sub
wtantial and progressive farmers, has
just imported two thoroughbred Jer
sey bulls, six months old, valued at
$100 each. These are the first of the
Jersey breed ever imported into Los
Angeles county. Our farmers would

Dr. Brenan's free lecture at Turn-

Doctor in his own original and pun
gent style, richly repaying all who
hear him. Go early, if you expect to
secure a seat.

hus gone into the show business. His
first effort is thus chronicled by his

The projected railroad uuder the
management of the Centinela Land
Company seems to have awakened
the former project of tho Truxton
landing road, which has been quietly
napping for several mouths past. Yes
terday a meeting of the prime movers
iv the latter enterprise was held attlue
United States Land Ofiice. About
twenty gentlemen were present who
exhibited an active interest in the af
fair, and the meeting proceeded in a
very business-like mauner to inaugu
rate a stock company .for the work
In hand. The name adopted was
"Tlie Los Angeles Railroad Com
pany." Ex-Mayor J. R. Toberman
was chosen President, with Louis
Wolfskill Treasurer, J. W. Haverstiek
Secretary and a board of seven Direc
tors; all of the officers being elected
temporarily. Twenty-eight thousand
dollars ill stock was promised and a
donation of one hundred acres of land
lying at the shore end of the line was
made to the company by Mrs. Lucas.
The capilal stock of the company was
fixed at $200,000—a siim which was
deemed ample to construct the road
and build a wharf at the landing. It
has been practically demonstrated that
such a wharf extended 1,400 feet would
reach a depth of twenty-one feet of
water at low tide, thus giving ample
accommodations to shippiug. Com
mittees were appointed to canvass for
subscriptions to stock in the road,con
sisting of the following named gentle
men: Committee at large, Mr. Weed
and John D. Young; for the Third
Ward, Los Angeles city, J. R. Tober
man and Mr. Haineaj. for the Second
Ward, H. D. Barrows and Louis
Wolfskill; for the First Ward, Gen
oral Uouton. It was decided to in
corporate the company at once, and
the necessary articles ready drafted
were submitted to the meeting. We
hope that the "Los Angeles Railroad"
will prove a success. It is in the
hands of men who have both the nec
essary means and enterprise to con
struct it, and, being an entirely local
road devoted to the interests of Los
Angeles as its name implies, tht re is
no doubt but that it will receive a
strong support from our citizens.
City Marshal J. J. Carrillo was the
recipient of another nattering compli
ment from his friends last night.
This tims it came in the shape of an
elegant gold-plated badge. The affair
came oft' at Judge Thompson's ollice
where a number of prominent citizens
were assembled, and Mr. Carrillo be
ing iuvited in, Senator Bush arose,
and with a few appropriate remarks,
made tho presentation. He expressed
the high esteem in which Mr. Car
rtllo is held-in Los Angeles, and be
lieved that the confidence of the peo
ple, as shown in the late election, was
not illy bestowed. Mr. Carrillo re
sponded with a few words expressive
of his gratitude to his friends who had
thus chosen t» honor him ami prom
ised to be faithful to his trust. The
badge was pinned to its place by the
Marshal's aged father, whp was pres
ent and delivered some sound parental
advice suited to the occasion. Mr. J.
J. Thomas then followed with a little
speech of congratulation, after which
the company adjourned to convenient
quarters and drauk to tlie health of all
concerned. The badge is a very tasty
and elegant piece of workmanship.
It Is In the form of ashield.bearihgon
its face in enameled engraving the
words " Los Angeles City Marshal,"
and on the reverse, " Presented to J.
J. Carrillo by his friends; Los Ange
es.Dec. 19th, 1874."

And stnr-llglit ofti n steals

As If you would like lo dwell
Upon dream-land's talry shore,
With nothing to break the spell,
Or open the crystal door?

We slop at the magical isle;
Hope reareth her castle high,
Wreathing each lip with n smile.
The portals are open wide
Hy Joy nnd pleasure to-day,

Lending up the dreamy way.
Wondorous bcautlfal Isle,
llrlgnt. In the river of life;
Catching from heaven Its smile,
Shunning earth's sorrow and strife.
Flowers bloom bright In this land,
Whispering softly of love;
Tended by woe fairy hands,
Near to the portals above.
I angnngc would frill lo express,
All you hnve been unto me,
Or half the dear tendefno3ss,
Circling forever round the ■.
Morning, at noon and at nlgbl,
When ere I know you away,
Whore danger hangs like a blight,
I nover forget to pray.
That our Father on high
May watch from heaven above,
Bidding ids angels be nigh
Where ere your loot steps may rovo.
Then when life's daylight shell close,
BOfUy falls the last even,

Sure of a meeting In heaven.

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
Ovor and over again,
No matter which way I turn,
I ulways find In the book of life
Some lesson I liuvc to learn.
I must take my turn at the mill,
1 must grind out tlie golden grain,
I must work out my tusk with a resolute will,
Over and over again.
Wo cannot measure the need
Of even tho tiniest (lower,
Nor chock the flow of the golden sands
That run through a single hour;
But the morning dews must lull,
Ami tho sun and the Hummer rain
Must do their part, and perform it all
Over and over again.
Over und ovor again
Tlie brook through tho meadow flows,
And ovor and over again
The ponderous mill w heel goes.
Once going will not suffice,
Though doing be not in vain;
And a blessing failing us otuv or twice
May come it we try again.
The path that has once been tro.l
Is never so rough to I ho feel;
And the lesson wo once have I ariied
Is never so hard to repeat,
Though sorrowful tears must full.
And Ihe heart to its depths be riven
Willi storm and tempest, we n erf them all
To render us meet lor heuvi-n.
Allegory and Story.
Dean Stanley, in an address at the
unveiling of the statue of John Bun
yan, alter quoting Lord Macaulay's
statement that, the seventeenth cen
tury only produced two men of orig
inal genius, John Milton and John
banyan, went on to say that theie
were only two prose works of univer
sal popularity in the Whole of E.iglish
literature. These are the Pilgrim's
Progress, written by a Baptist preach
er, a non-conformist, and Robinson
Crusoe, by a Presbyterian journalist,
and dissenter. The reverend speaker
thought Pilgrim's Progress to be "ono
of the six books," and equal with any
of the six, that, after the English
Bible, have contributed to the com
mon religious culture of the Anglo-
Saxon race. It is also about the only
English book that has succeeded in
identifying religious instruction with
tbe entertainment and amusement of
both old aud young.
A busy, useful, holy life, and none
other, is a lfe of well-doing; is a noble
life, though passed in a cottage, is a
happy one, though its path be rough
and thorny. In a world where there
is much to do, there is little time for
self-enjoyment, and no time for sinful
ones. Like a toil-worn laborer, weary
in, though not of his work, the Chris
tian may sometimes wish it were con
cluded, and long for sunset that he
might leave the field to go home; yet
toiling and enduring, bearing others
burdens as well as his own, living not
for himself, regarding every day as
lost which is not marked by some good
done, and regarding himself as the
steward of God's bounty—not a lord
but a laborer iv the vineyard —that
man, though he may be weary in, will
not be weary of well-doing.— Bowman.
Things that Last.
Let us now look at those things that
"will never wear out."
I have often heard a poor blind girl
sweetly sing, "Kind words will never
die." Ah! we believe that these are
among the things that "will never
wear out." And we are told in God's
own book to be " kind to one another,
tender - hearted, forgiving ono an
The word of the Lord will never
wear out. Though the grass shall
wither and the flowers fall away, the
word of the Lord endureth forever.
(1 Peter, i. 24, 25.)
The life of the righteous will never
wear out. They will live in the world
to come as long as God shall live; but
the death of the wicked will last for
The joys of the Kingdom of Heaven
will never wear out. The people of
this world soon die; but the enjoy
ments of thafworld will never end.
The crown of glory will never wear
out. The crown of the winner in the
Olympic games soon faded; the crown
of kings all wear out; but the crown
of glory will never fade away. (1 Pe
ter, v. 4.J
The "new song" will never wear out.
We hear sometimes that some of our
tunes are worn threadbare; but that
will never be said of the new song.
Which will you choose—the lasting
or that which wastes away ? The
things of time or of eternity ? Will
you choose wealth, honor, fame or the
joys of heaven, eternal life, the crown
of glory and the "new song?"
May God enable you to make a wise
choice; and, with Joshua, may we
choose to serve the Lord.— Christiaii
A Curious Incident.
As tbe cars from one of our branch
depots were about to leave for the city
the other day the signal was given to
start and tho steam turned on with
full force, but the train refused to move
and curiosity was great for a time to
Hud the cause. At hist it was ascer
tained that a bottle of the famous
housekeeper's cement had been broken
on the track and stuck the wheels fast
to the rails. They were at last sep
arated and the train departed, and on
its arrival iv town the rush to the
Dollar Store for a bottle of that cement
was tremendous. There are a few botf
