This community was shocked
yesterday by a rumor of the death
of Mrs. Parker, tbo wife of Mr. E.
S. Parker. We stated in tho Her
ald, the day after Parker was
found guilty by the jury, that the
shook was likely to be fatal lo that
gentleman's wife. Mrs. Parker
was of delicate physique and the
nervous shock of tbe events which
culminated iv her husband's con
viction as accessory before the fact
to tbe murder of Fonck was too
much for her fragile health. She
was a most accomplished lady aud
was endeared to a iargo circle of
friends, made since her residence
iv Los Angeles. She belonged to
a family of marked respectability.
Parker himself has been insane
since his conviction and has been
prostrated by a nervous fever
which will, very likely, carry
him to his grave also. We have
seldom beeu called upon to chron
icle such a melancholy succession
of misfortuues as have attended
poor Parker and bis family. It
was while attending at the sick
bed of her husband that the poor
lady succumbed to the disease from
which she died.

Od next Monday begins the last

hoped that pupils will realize tho
fact aud come back with the deter
mination to make the most of the
remaining three months. We have
all had a short respite trom work,
which was needed by some of the
teachers aud scholars, aud especial
ly by those boys aud girls who
havo spetit, ou an average, twe
days out of live iv tlie schoolroom,
during tbe last three months. We
sincerely hope that pupils of this
class have so far regained their
strength and energy as to be able to
finish the year with a respectable
attendance; that is if they can do
so with due regard to the periodi
cal attacks of toothaches, headaohe,
earache, eyeache, sore throat, etc.,
and at thesame time taking good
care that school does not interfere
wirli tlie acquiring of v large
amount of street knowledge so nec
essary to their happiness. Of
course these things mint be attend
ed to. Manufactured aches are
very dangerous, and a good street
education of the utmost import
ance.
Indulgent parent ■> cannot afford
to send children with a sham bead
acheor toothache, to school, there is
great danger—of their learning
something; and still more, it might
smother their inventive faculties
and, possibly, provent them Irom
acquiring a strong love for whole
sale falsifying.

convened in the County Court room
at 7:30 o'clock last evening, H. T.
Hazard, President, in the Chair.
Minutes of previous mectiug read

A communication was received
from the Central Workingmen's
Club.
The Committee of Five presented
the following address aud rules for
tbe formation and government of
an organization to be known as tbe
Home Protective League of South
ern California, which, after insert
ing a clause offered by Mr. Butler,
excluding politics from the de

unanimously adopted.
ADDRESS
To the Citiiens of Southern Califor
nia:
Whereas, The material prosperi
ty of a country depends mainly
upon the united efforts of the in
habitants thereof in sustain ingand
patronizing home industries, by
which means all their resources are
developed aud the wealth which is
tbeir true independence is kept at
home and distributed among tbe
people.
We, therefore, appeal to our cit
izens to awaken to a stern realiza
tion of tho fact that year after year
we are growing poorer; money is
becoming scarcer and scarcer, bus
iness is paralyzed; tbe productive
industries of our country areata
standstill, and nearly all are dis
tressed financially. Our farmers,
merchants, laboring men and me
chanics are idle, and in many in
stances their homes a'redestitute of
tbe necessaries of life. And why ?
Because we have been and are still
consuming tbe productions sent to
us from abroad, and have turued a
cold shoulder to and neglected our
own home productive interests.
The productiveness of our soil is
our capital. Theu let us develop
it, and by thus drawing on our
own reaources cease to be borrow
ers. Let us produce what we con
sume, and claim our right to sup
ply the markets abroad with all
the articles of consumption they
bave hitherto shipped to us, until
we have paid our debts iv full.
The better to carry out our de
termination in that regard, we do
hereby resolve ourselves into a
league to be known as the " Hume
Protection League of Southern
California," and do take Upon our
selves tbe following pledge:
We, the undersigned, hereby
agree aud pledge ourselves lo pur
chase and consume ail articles pro
duced or manufactured at borne in
preference to those imported from
abroad; to encourage, the con
sumption of home productions; to
aid in building up our manufactur
ing, producing aud agricultural
interests; to encourage the impor
tation of coin and the exportation
of home products.
B. L. PEEL, Chairman.
H. 1). Barrows,
D. Rivara,
W. H. Moore, Secretary.
We, the Committee, recommend
to this meeting that an organiza
tion be formed to be called "The
Home Protection League of South
ern California."
That this League shall bave
aPresideut, Vice-President, Secre
tary and au Executive Committee
of five, whose duties shall be the
same as those of similar officers in
other organizations and as herein
after provided for.
For tbo proper regulation of our
League we recommend the adop
tion of tbe following rules:
1. The President shall be author
ized to call a meeting at any time
aud shall preside at each meeting.
2. Tbe Secretary shall keep the
books aud papers of the League uud
tbe miuutes of each meeting
3. The records shall be subject
to the inspection of any member of
the League.
4. No member shall be
permitted to speak more
than ten miuutes on any one sub
ject without permission of v ma
jority of the members present.
5. That the organization shall
confine itself entirely to the objects
set forth iv the pledge aud the
address aud no other subject shall
be discussed or considered at any
meeting without, the couseutof a
majority present, and the League
shall not become a political party,
or take part in any ot the county or
State elections as such.
6. It shall be the duty of the Execu
tive Committee to make provisions
to extend this organization

Incurring a Tremendous Risk.
They incur a Iremendous risk who St-
Journ or emigrate to reside in districts
where malti'ial disease Is prevalent with
out medicinal means ol" fortifying their
systems against the period <a scourge.
The danger to bilious aubjeeta, arid to
those who lack bodily stuimou. is partic
ularly serious. A preventive and curat,
live u»eni of known antt-inalurlal elneee\
should be Irequently used and eonautmt ly
IceptHthand by such persons; and on
none can they rely with such certainty oi
protection aud aid as Hosteller's tsiotn
ach Bitters. This grand specific roots
out every vestige of the malarial poison
from the system, and endows it with an
amount of vital activity and repelling
power that nullifies the Influeuce of mi
asma. It also prevents and remedies
disorders of the stoaiuch, bowels and
liver, which are particularly prevalent In
malarious regions, and is un incompara
ble general invlgorant.
If you want any assorted table
and pie fruits in 2Jlb cans at 25 cts
