SATURDAY AUG. 13.1881. Heraltl Steam Printing House. rhe facilities of the Hkkald Steam printing House lor doing Job work are not ■ arpaeaed In California outside ot Han franolsoo and Sacramento. All work en trusted to ns will be executed with neat ness and dispatch at the lowed living rates. SKKiltl NOTHIB. Hereafter notices of companies, socie ties, ehnrohes, etc, will only be Inserted in the Hkrald as paid advertisements. We reserve, tor Places of Worship, a grat is directory, which will appear every Sunday morning. The theory has been held in sci •ntinc and other quarters that the ( laying down of extensive lines of railway has modified the natural ( olimate of such regions as Colorado t and New Mexico, and the change bas been principally apparent in tbe greatly increased rainfall. At tention was first called to this fact in Colorado. The settlement of c Greeley, in that State, was a co lonnlal experiment whose success c depended upon irrigation. Trees ' were planted and railroads were 1 built; and, very soon, the Greeley- c ltes began to noto a marked iv- c crease In their abnormally small 8 rainfall. They ascribed it to tbe 1 exerted upon the electri- 1 oal and rain currents by the rail- ' ways which were being laid down J on every hand, and also to the tree planting, which was from the first J zealously and successfully cairied 1 on by tbe colonists. We now learn, from a recent telegram from the 1 East, that scientists are consider- 1 Ing tbe unquestioned fact that the 1 rapid and continuous railway building in New Mexico is having a like effect there. That arid re gion, with the exception of small patches here and there, has always seemed valueless save for pasturage and mining. If there be any truth iv this hypothesis, Los Angeles county ought to af ford an admirable field for collect ing confirmatory statistics. We have bad here both very extensive railway building and tree planting, county itself is gridironed with railways, aud large sections have been made to bear prolific orcnge and other fruits where no I trees ever grew before. Is it true that our climate bas been modified to any extent? Somebody, who either has a good memory or the happy habit of storing up meteoro logical data, ought to throw all the light possible upon tbi» matter. There is a tradition amongst that portion of the native CalWorntaM wno California by pf the Americans, that the coming of tbe "Gringos" had caused the country to deteriorate both iv its rainfall and productiveness. Doubt less these statements must be taken with a grain of salt. If true, they would be a remarkable refu tation of the Idea, which has now been pretty universally accepted, that the progress of railways and tree planting Is causing a marked increase in the annual rains. We are Inclined to accept this theory, although we believe that the change will be slowly made from an arid country, like New Mexico, to a well watered aud well wooded one. It bas been established too •learly to admit of coutradiotion that the denudatiou of forests lessens tbe rainfall of a country. The outting down of the trees in tbe neighborhood of Trieste soon oonverted the country surrouuditog * into a desert. The plant ing of trees on an extensive seals thereon, under governmental su pervision, rapidly resulted iv tbe complete restoration of the country to ita old time fertility. Tbe won derful electrical disturbances iv tbe Northwestern States during tbe past twenty years, which are reasonably certain to have result ed from tbe building of railways, show that these, at least in that lo cality, exert a powerful Influence upon temperature and rainfall. It may be a question as to whether r 'our people would be willing to ex change their perfect climate for an increased rainfall, but we shall bave little voice in tbe matter. The weather clerk will obey the laws In tbe Pacific States which govern him iv tbe Atlantic; and if railways, In addition to giving us cheap transportation, shall also spoil this section as a sanitarium, we sball even have to submit, and md our consolation in its unprece dented fertility. Fkw people have an adequate idea of tbe extent to wbicb tbe fruit and canning business has grown np In California. Oen. Bid- B .well ia leading off in a new de parture, and is shipping pears to Loudon. This fruit is held in such estimation there that it brings $12 a box. California canned fruits and vegetables are going all over the world. Tbe other day a whole cargo of tbem was sent to Copen hagen. There is now a practically unlimited demand, In Europe and all oyer the world, for this latest •four specialties. The profits of /rait growing, too, are something . of a marvel. Four acres in small gpCraita, suoh as raspberries, slraw * barrier, blackberries, etc., yielded BganUaaian in one of the counties adjoining San Franoleco, and in cline of $12,000 last year, or at the rate of $3,000 an acre. When tbe market fails to absorb all his fruit, be sends tbe residue to the cauner ies, which pay prices which remu nerate the producer very satisfac torily. The Fruit Drying and Can ning establishment across tbe river can be made a source of profit both to its owners and the public, and it is but the avant courier of others. Our orchardiats, instead of giving their exclusive attentiou to semi tropical fruits, ought to devote a good deal of their labor to the fruits of the temperate zones. They are certain to find a remunerative market for all fruit of good quality they may raise, aud the success of one Dryer and Cauuery will lead to the establishment of others, just as the success of the first cheese factory iv this ccuuty lias led to the startiug of other cheese facto ries. The raising of berries, which ought to be carried ou on uu ex tensive scale in Los Angeles coun ty, has been too much neglected hitherto. Tbe omission ought to be repaired. Expectation ruus high as to the coming Centennial Fair and it should not be disappointed. A thorough spirit of harmony and co-operation amongst our producers cannot fail to ba productive of a very gratifying display, and the only way to secure an exhibition of the right standard is for all the gentlemen connected with the Fair management to labor personally with the country people, so that we may be sure that at least a por tion of what will reflect honor on this county shall bo on exhibition. As to the literary and other fea tures of tbe Fair they, of course, will bo properly attended to. It is tbe farmer, vlueyardist aud orch ardist who require to be prodded up. Professor Fowler, the well known English anatomist, has published Home further results of his researches with reference to the bumun skull. The largest average capacity of any human bead he bas measured is that of v race of loug-headetl people on the west coast of Africa. The Laplanders and Esquimaux, though a very small people, have very large skulls, tbe latter giving an average measurement of 1546 cubic centi meters. The English skull of the lower grades shows 1542; the Jap enese, 1486; Chinese, 1484; modern Italian, 1475; ancient Egyptian, 1464; Hindoos, 1306.

Soms of the Unintelligible Utterances Pe culiar to Oertin Kanka of "Play People." ( Philadelphia Times J The getierous quantity of slang that bubbles out of the average actor, particularly those effusive bipeds, the "artists" of variety theaters, "would have made Quin tilliau sture and gasp." Several strong detachments of the tin crushed ones have found summer quarters here, and any evening they may be seen posiug before the Continental Hotel, drawing nutriment from toothpicks and the beads of their walking sticks. They are untiring talkers, and tbe number of mean things they find to say about absent members of their guild would astonish a per son j^gf/g. sjiirAlrJ usW by these disciples of Tbespis would fill a book and every season the number is increased. Tho greater part of this slang is coined by the performers in vari ety theaters, who, not having much good language at their com mand, eularge their vocabularies from time to time by inventing words and phrases which, iv their opinion mv eminently proper. Some of tbe expressions are terse aud pithy, but the majority border on driveliDg idiocy. People iv legitimate theaters lard their con versation with a greatdeal of slang, but not tv the extent their brothers of the variety halls do. Some slang expressions, which apply solely to the theater, are never heard in general conversation on tbe street, but most of tbe words soon come into general use. The conversation of a slangy actor is about as iutelligible to the aver age person as Arabic would be. When a song aud dance man witb a live hundreddollardiamoud pin and a shining black hat propped himself against a pillar of the Con tinental Hotel last evening anil said to an acquaiutauce,"Cull, you should have seen tbe frost his jags struck when he went ou," he meant that the acting of a mutual frieud was not applauded by those who saw it. If this representative of the burnt cork branch of the bustuess desired to express his con tempt for "Gilbooly and McGiu nis, Irelaud's peerless cbaractema tiouiste," ha would wither the peerless pair by calling them "jays," or "chumps," or "duffers," or "ranks," or perhaps "hams." If, on the contrary, the "character izatiouists'\were his friends and in his opinion clever performers, he would express it all by saying they were "dandies," a word, by tbe way, which he would use iv tbe same sense while speaking of a female. He calls a beautiful wo man a "ialla," a "dandy," or a "corker," and an ugly one a "chrnmo." If " Miss Beatrice Maud McGonigle's Vocalizations" are not up to the standard she is said to be a "piano voice," aud if she plays badly she Is set down as "very come off," or awfully "bla bla." A performer who "gets hands," or, in other words, is ap plauded, is said to have "bit eta hard " An encore Is a "call," and a double encore is a "dandy call." An astonished person is "knock ed out," or "flashed," and while a prosperous mania "up In G," a fel low in hard luck Is said to be "skating on bis uppers." An un satisfactory performance is referred to as a "bun show," while Its an tithesis is a "honey cooler." A good-natured man is an "angel," and if more (ban one specimen of that variety of mankind is seen, angels are said to be "flying low " When au actor inquires at what hour he will receive his salary he is almost certain to say, "When will the ghost walk?" or "When will tbe apparition appear?" Ask ing questions of this kind is called "bracing tbe box office," To make an engagement with a friend is to "fix a date," and to travel with a theatrical company through inte rior towns is called "barn storm ing." All actors, except cirous performers, are called "/aklrs" and a costume is a "fakement." The oircus people are termed "sawdust pounders," and they only speak of actors as "mummers." Small combinations playing in country towns are called "soaps," but the same term is frequently used in speaking of a company that has been hastily collected for the purpose of playing a few nights iv a city. A "fly by night" manager is one without money, and a wealthy one Is called a "solid fixer.' "When a thoroughbred "fakir" says "look at his'jags," be refers to a stranger, for if he knew tbe indi vidual be called "his Jags," he would have put It more gracefully and said: "tilt on to his rabbits."
