of workmen will be removed to the
thirty-mile stake, beyond the Santa
Ana river, to-day. About 125 China
men and the same number of white
men, with 50 teams, are engaged at
the work. The grading will probably
be finished between the Ist and 15th of
April. The iron for the road is now on
its way here, and track-laying will be
commenced shortly. Great credit is
alloted to Mr. Hall for the energy
which he has displayed in pushing
things ahead.

The Citizens' Committee of Ten on
the Los Augeles and Independence
Railroad held a meeting last night at
the company's office. Mayor Beaudry
was elected to the chair. No business
of importance was transacted, except
the adoption of a resolution providing
for a more thorough canvass of the
city to secure subscriptions to stock.
A list of names was taken from the
City Directory of parties who areable
to subscribe but have not yet done so.
The list will be divided and appor

call upon each individual and urge the
necessity of a subscription.

The colony of Chinese on St. Ann
street, opposite the Superior District
Court, love, like all Chinamen, to boast
of the greatness of China, its wonders
and magnificence. The following story
was tolrj us by one of them,Che-Fung,
the other night, as a proof of Chinese
superiority over the barbarians of tlie
West. Whether it were a Chinese
hoax or not, it is at least theoretically
and naturally possible.
Che-Fung is a picture of the more
wretched Chinese. He is frightful,
disgusting in appearance. Tall for a
Chitiaman, being over six feet in
height, he is thin and emaciated—a
skeleton scarecrow. His face is cov
ered with wrinkles, like a school-boy's
atlas; his nose must be taken for gram
ed —it is a mere suspicion; his mouth
is a gulf in itself; nis eyes are alto
gether out of the right position; and
the flesh of his face hangs down like
the hide of a rhinoceros. Altogether
Che-Fung is a disgusting sit{ht, and
looks as if he had been hung and dried,
boiled aud smoked and then buried for
a month or so, and dug up to be exhib
ited. Yet Che-Fung is a good talker
in Pigeon English, and in a confiden
tial mariner disclosed his whole history
in that language, of which,while mak
ing out one word in ten, we get a gen
eral idea.
His story being translated, is sub
stantially as follows:
I was a circus man in China—Tsien
Jing, as we call it. We are great on
gymnastics aud legerdeman; but par
t'cularly in uatural phenomena, hu
man curiosities, etc. There is a human
monstrosity manufactory at Tsacping,
where, for a consideration, any of the
human deformities you Americans
regard as lapsi naturae can be made to
order. There are many parents who
thus sacrifice their children to be made
monsters of, and who live on the gaol
ing by the cxii.it ion of those monstros
I cannot explain how all these
tricks are done, but that they are done
any Chinaman can testify. A dwarf
is of easy manufacture. A regular
dose of whisky and tea to a child will
stunt it—keep it down to its original
size. A monstrosity, a hunchback, is
of course easy; while human beings
can be made of any shape from a cock
to an elephant, by being moulded in a
jar like jelly—stuck into a jar of the
desired shape when young and left
there to develop itself.
"As for myself, I was brought up a
fat man."
"A fat man!" we exclaimed invol
untarily, looking at Che-fung's spare
form. "Do you manufacture fat peo
ple in Chiua?"
11 It is only a trick of the trade, I was
naturally a thin boy, but old Fee Lee
soon brought me out. You have seen
sheep slaughtered here; seen them
skin them. A hole is made in the
outer skin (the epidermis) and a bel
lows is inserted and worked. The air
finds its way between the cuticle and
and cutis, or skin proper, and swells
out the animal to double Its size, at
the same time that italinost separates
these two skins, so that the hide of
the animal comes off easily. This is
the manner in which I was treated.
Every morning 1 was given an air
bath, and a gallon or so of air injected
into my system, and I soon began to
swell like a balloon.
In a mouth or so I was returned to
my parents a fat boy, and a fine speci
men of a fat boy; measuring, although
only 15, 88 inches around the chest and
46 inches around the thigh. I was
advertised as weighing 600 pounds;
the truth was, I weighed only about
180, the 80 being the weight of 200 gal
lons of air by which I was puffed out.
I don't believe that I, altogether, pre
sented a very pretty aspect, being
puffed out and lumpy in appearance,
and looking bloated rather than fat.
However, a very close observer could
not detect the imposture, and I was
exhibited for many years, earning a
respectable livelihood for my parents,
who had brought me up to the profes
sion of fat man.
"The profession was not an agreea
ble one. The air made me ever feel
sleepy and sick. It did not, however,
make me lazy; did not impede me as
fat would have done. Those who saw
my agility and gracefulness on the
street, wondered how so fat a man
could be so lively, little suspecting
that his apparent fatness was an as
sistance, und half carried me along
the street. There were few young
men in China that could beat the
monster of six hundred pounds in v
foot race.
I came over here and exhibited in
America in San Francisco for some
time. One day during a sitting an
American child, with the usual in
genuity and investigatinjr disposition
of American children, crept up behind
me, and, probably impressed with the
desire of discovering whether a fat
man could feel or not, ran a pin or
knife or something sharp into me
while uo one was observing him. The
result was somewhat of an explosion;
the captive air rushed out, and left me
a thin looking individual as I am
now. There was uo one to blow me
up scientifically, and I therefore gave
up tile profession of fat man for that
of washerwoman. I seldom feel any
evil consequences from my previous
condition, save my cuticle, or outer
skin, is almost seperated from myself,
and, like an ill-fitting suit of clothes,
almost drops off, or bunches itself UP
in a disagreeable manner. I some
times get cold inside of it, which is not
at all comfortable. Still the the posi
tion of a washerwoman is much pre
ferable to that of a fat man, and I in
tend to stick to it."— New Orleans

April 6th, 7th and Bth, 1875.
The Directors of the Los Angeles Immigra
tion and Land Co-operative Association would
announce that at their late sales over l.UtfO
acres of land was sold; the greater part of
wbi -h went to actual settlers who will Im
prove the same at once.
Desirous of disposing of the remal ning lands
—nearly 2,000 acres—ln order to make the set
tlement as strong as possible, and at tbe same
time give tbe Association an opportunity to
subdivide other ranches, t.ie managers now
offer ai Publiu Auction, the remaining lands,
on the 6th, 7th and 8 h of April, 1875, when
the purchaser will be allowed to take the
lands In parcels to sait
At their own Figures. The
entire tract will be sold
without reserve.
A Public School building, to cost over $4,1»>.
is now being erected and will be completed
before the second sale. The percentage of the
last sale devoted to the erection of this build
ing amounted to over (2,000, and the same
percentage (10 percent, on town property and
2% per cent, ou firm property) will be given
for the same purpose from the proceeds of the
next sale.
The soil is of a rich sandy loam and free
from alkali. There are two oi three small
pieces of alkali ground on the tract, but they
will be pointed out lo pus chaser* so that they
may know what they are buying. The char
acter of the soil is more like the warm mesa
lands of the country,than the low,damp corn

months, TWENTY-FIVE PER CENT. In one

During the sale free transports)ion will be
furnisued those in attendance, from the oars
to the lands and return, and reduaed fare for
the round trip will be secured on the railroad
from Los Angeles and return.
Believing that tbe sale and consumption of
spirituous and malt liquors In the settlement
woulil be productive of much evil continually,
and no good, the Association will insert a
