An Attempt to Throw the Kau Fer
naudo Train off tlie Track—A Ter
rible Accident Narrowly Averted.
From a passenger we learn that an
attempt was made to throw the Sau
Fernando train oil' the track °» Tues
day evening last, at a point a short
distance north of the city. At about
half-past 8 o'clock the engineer dis
covered an obstruction on the track
some distance ahead. Fortunately he
was running slowly at the time, aud
had sufficient warning to stop before
reaching the dangerous place. An
examination showed that a large
piece of timber about twelve feet long
had been placed diagonally across the
track, securely wedged and the ends
covered with rocks. This obstacle
was soon removed and the train put
in motion, when, on reachiug the
switch where the Spadra ami San Fer
nando roads diverge, another dead-fall
was discovered, more cunningly de
vised and more dangerous than the
first. The frog of the switch was
found to be filled with rock and gravel
packed in so that, while hardly per
ceptible from the cab of the engine,
the obstruction would have thrown the
traiu from the track, causing a com
plete wreck and frightful loss of life
aud limb. It was by a mere chance
that this awful calamity was averted.
Had the train been under full head
way, either obstruction was sufficient
to accomplish the end sought by the
wrctehes who executed -the hellish
plot. The law provides no punish
ment too severe for the perpetrators of
such a dastardly act. We trust that
the villains will be found and dealt
with as they merit.
New School Houses.
Many parents are anxiously waiting
to see what response the City Council
will give to the petitions presented by
the Board of Education. A prompt
and liberal response will carry joy to
many households whose children are
now deprived of Ihe privileges of
schools. The people know that the
responsibility for delay now rests upon
the members of the Council.
Hon. P. V. Deuster'a Letter from I.os
Anireles, California.
Hon. P. V. Dettster, ofthe Sebote, is
delighted with his experiences in Cal
ifornia, as will be apparent from the
annexed letter to Hon. John Black:
Los Anoklks, January Gth.
Dkab Fkiknd: Having arrived at
our place of destination, I hasten to let
you know that we enjoy the best of
health, and that our journey was a
pleasant one. Since our arrival in this
place (December 20th) we have bad
cloudless, warm, suunv days. The
thermoniet... .nuges WOrn 65 to 70 iv
the shade at noon. Tlie city itself is
not very angelic, as there are many
Mexicans here, living iv "dobey"
houses, standing in such streets, of
course, as are not very clean. This old
Spanish town, over 100 years old, nick
named Sonora, lies atone end near the
old Mission Church. Next to this
comes thejbusiness streets, and beyond
this the American part of the town.
Orange groves surround a great part
of the city, and vineyards are very
numerous. The population consists of
Americans, Germans, Irish, French,
Spaniards, Chinese and Indians, and
numbers in all about 13,000. The cli
mate is really beautiful—charming.
North of the town are hills, which we
mount every day. From these hills
the suburbs of Los A ngeles, green with
the deep green of orange trees and
golden with their fruit, is a beautiful
sight for the month of January. Last
Sunday I visited tlie garden of a Dr.
Griffin. Over twenty different kinds
of flowers 1 found blooming in the
open air, among them the German
violet, ihe tuberose, the jassemine,
gilly flower—all fragrant. There are
also wild flowers blooming on the hills.
The vegetable gardens are as with us
in Milwaukee in June. We have new
potatoes and peas, and some strawber
ries are ripening. The land is excel
lent for semi-tropical fruits,when there
is water for irrigation. They lead
water by ditches miles and miles. In
my opinion Los Angeles, the metrop
olis of Southern Caiifornia,will remain
the trade-center of this part of the
State for all time to come. Tlie town
is crowded with stranger, invalids and
pleasure-seekers from all parts of the
Uuited States. We wanted to rent a
house, but could notget one. For two
furnished rooms In a hotel we pay $50
in gold a month, besides board.
Hoping to hear from you occasion
ally, and wishing you and your family
a " Happy New Year," I remain to
call myself your true friend,
P. V. Deuster.
Paper Mills—A Proproposition.
We print the subjoined letter for the
purpose of bringing it before those
who are engaged in developing our
manufacturing interests and capital
ists, who may see in it an opportunity
for profitable investment. The letter
explains itself:
Nashville, Term., Jan. 15, 1875.
Editor Los Angeles Herald: In
your issue of January Ist, 1875 I see
encouragement for a paper mill in
your section. 1 have large experience
in that business; have charge of two
mills at present iv this place. I make
book, blotting, news, wrapping, etc ,
samples of which I will send you. I
also agree with your opinion, and I
Know that a mill properly managed
would pay well in that country. If
.some parties of capital would invest in
that business I would like to have
charge as I sure it would be a success.
Patrick Dooley,

A Word for California.
California, in point of population, is
the twenty-fourth State In tho Union,
twenty-three States exceeding this in
the number of inhabitants. But in
point of wealth, it stands the tenth
State in the Union—only nine States
exceeding her in wealth. The States
which exceed California in wealth—
that is, assessable property—are Illi
nois, with uearly two million more of
population, but only $300,000,000 more
property; Indiana with 1,100,000 more
people, has $100,000,000 more assessa
ble property; Massachusetts, the
wealthiest State iv the Union in pro
portion to its inhabitants, bus double
our wealth; Michigan, with double
our population has only $100,000,000
more taxable property; Missouri,with
more than a million more inhabitants
has only about $40,000,000 more of
property; New Jersey, with 40,000
more people has only $68,000,000 more
property: New York, with eight
times our population, has only four
times our wealth; Ohio, with 2,126,000
more people, has less than three times
our wealth, and Pennsylvania, with
six times our population has less than
three times our wealth. There are
three States with less taxable property
than Alameda couuty—to wit: Flori
da, Nevada and Oregon. There are
nineteen States with less assessable
property than Sau Francisco.
In referring to the sale of 3,500 acres
of choice lands adjoining the new town
of Artesia, the Express says:
This sale has been gotten up under
the auspices of the Los AngeJes Immi
gration and Land Co-operative Associ
ation, which is sufficient guarantee
that all the statements set forth in the
advertisement are reliable. The tract
is finely located, just east of Norwalk
Station, on the Anaheim Branch Hail
road, aud is in au artesian belt. The
character of the soil is adapted to the
production of semi-tropical fruits, and
the entire tract is recommended as one
of the best locations for a flourishing
settlement in this section of the State.
California Fruit for London.
The Sacramento Record of January
27th says: «J. J. Valentine, General
Manager of Wells, Fargo & Co.'s Ex
press Company, has entered upon a
fruit shipping experiment, in connec
tion with several Sacramento citizens.
He proposes to ship samples of fruits
and nuts grown in this State, to Lon
don, and have an accurate report made
of the state of the shipment when it
reaches its destination. M. T. Brewer
& Co., of this city, are the packers;
Judge Crocker, F. Foster and W. M.
Corbusler contribute oranges from
their gardens; C. F. Reed supplies a
variety of Winter pears; from Briggs'
orchard comes a lot of soft-shell al
monds. The shipment will start upou
its travels to-day.
Change of School Hours.
Commencing on Monday, the Bth,
the noon Intermission will he length
ened to one hour. The afternoon ses
sion of the schools will begin at one
o'clock and close at four o'clock. This
change will enable most of the pupils
to go home to lunch.

When t lie sun of prosperity* shining

Too Sanguine.
A lady, who, It seems has been led
into error about the current prices of
fruit, and thereby sadly diappointed,
sends us the following note:
Anaheim, Jan. 26, 1875.
Editor Herald: Is it true that
there are grapes in the Los Angeles
market, and grapes as cheap as one
and one-half to five cents per pound?
Are there pears at fifty cents per hun
dred and appiesat one dollar per box?
Where can these luxuries be bought?
We don't see anything of the kind
It is suggessed that the quotation
in fruit is for the benefit of Eastern
eyes that may see this paper ami be
ted into delusion with regard to this
country as was
Your faithful servant,
If "Sanguine" will read our market
reports, which are corrected weekly
by one of the leading grocery and pro
duce houses of Los Angeles, site
will find the following quotations:
IVurs, per hundred *l 00<y<2 00
Apple*, per l)«)x 2 00(it2 &0
Oranges, uer doz HVgl 75
In the matter of grapes, the prices
ruled, even lower than our corres
pondent's figures during the season.
Any number of tons of the Mission
grnpo oould h»v» heen bought at three
quarters to one cent per pouno. jte
ta.il rates, of course, were higher, but
no reasonable person could find fault
with them, as the immense supply on
the market precluded anything like
exorbitant charges.
We are led to believe that "San
guine" has been victimized by a cor
ner fruit stand and, in consequence,
says in her heart that all men are
liars. If she will purchase her fruits
from first-class establishments, she
will find prices not materially above
the quotations given in the Herald.

Educational Benefactions.
From the annual report of the U. 8.
Commissioner of Education,it appears
that during the year 1872, $9,957,494 28
were given to institutions of learning.
Of this sum $6,282,461 98 were given
to colleges and universities; the re
mainder being contributed to theolog
ical, law, medical, and agricultural
schools. In the long list of institu
tions named as receiving gifts varying
from a few hundred dollars to hun
dreds of thousands of dollars, there is
not one public school. Is it not time
for our common schools, in which the
masses are educated, to become the re
cipients of donations worthy of the
work in which they are engaged? In
almost every district there are men
and women who could greatly increase
the efficacy of their schools by dona
ions to the library ami apparatus
fund. In Los Angeles there are
wealthy citizens who could gladden
the hearts of hundreds of cnildren, as
well as add to the attractions of the
city, by contributing ol their abund
auce to purchase a fine telescope, or
an improved microscope; or by In
creasing the library and museum.
Who will be the pioneer in this good
Compulsory Education.
From almost every State in which
the experiment of compulsory educa
tion has been tried we hear that it ia a
dead letter upon the statute books.
After four years of trial iv Michigan,
under the most favorable circum
stances for its enforcement, the .State
Superintendent reports that it has
proved a complete failure. The at
tendance upon the public schools has
not increased, and iv all the State
there has not been one prosecution for
neglect to comply with its require
In our neighboring State, Nevada,
tbe result has been the same. In New
York, the leading educational journal
says, "the law can never be enforced
in the Empire State."
For six months the law has been
nominally in force in California. Can
its most enthusiastic friends point to
any good results? Is there a county or
school district in which any attempt
has been made to enforce It? Even
Superintended Bolander, its most ar
dent advocate, has done nothing to
wards giving it efficiency, being un
doubtedly convinced that the time has
not yet come for such a law in the
United States.
Monthly Reports.
Next week the teachers in the higher
grades of the city schools will send to
parents reports ofthe scholarship and
deportment of their childreu. It is
feared some parents do not attach suf
ficient importance to these reports.
One mother informed the writer that
sh«- had uever seen her daughter's re
ports. Possibly, if that daughter is
uot promoted the parents will express
surprise; perhaps blame the teachers.
A Rare Chance.

Main street, offered for sale by W. H.
J. Brooks, can be purchased for $5,000
each, and on the following terms:
$1,000 cash, the remaining $4,000t0 be
paid as follows: $2,500 at one per cent,
in one, two, three, four or live vents,
as the purchaser prefers. $1,500 for
the same term, also at one per cent,
per month, bayable in monthly in
stallments of $33 36, which, at the ex
piration of five years, would pay the
whole amount both principal and in
terest. Making the total monthly
payment which the purchaser would
have to pay $58 36, being no more
than a fair rent for that class of resi
dence, and with this further advan
tage that eaeli paymeut would be for
the benefit of the occupant instead of

Immigrant Union—Dear Sir:--! havejust vis
ited the "Centlncla and Sausal Kndondo"
Rancho, nnd drlvenoverthe land described in
v otiradvertlswiaenL With all-my experience
In tho southern part of California, J have seen
nothing to surpass thistractin fertility of soil,
beauty ot location, and advantage of easy ac
cess and sulubrlty of climate. For purposesof
colonisation, I know of no large body of land
so near a growing commercial centre, in Cali
fornia or elsewhere, to equal it. No part of it
Is unavailable for farms, orchards or home
steads. It can besubdivldcd into lots ranging
from five acres to severul hundred seres and
every scteof Itoaii be made productive. Water
Is abundant and convenient. The land is
subject to easy Irrigation'; and lean vouch for
the fact that It will pnaluoe anything that
flourishes in Los Angeles or Santa Barhara
counties. It Is my confident opinion that tne
valueof sharos in llim niaimui'-enl tract, wlit
l>e uiuulrupled within two ye v s -such is lie
extraordinary influx oi iratu grallon to tne
vicinity of Los Angeles at the pro >„, time.
Wishing you ,ucoess '"/""^'"bhow-k! 15 *
