It haa been a chronic custom for the landowners in the central portion of the State to decry the aovthern portion aa a dry region, and therefore most unde sirable oa that account. The real fauts sre, that the average nmuul rainfall of this part of the Stato about eighteen inches, while the drainage of tweuty miles of steep rocky slopes of the Sierra Madre gives about eighteen inches more of water that percolates our soil and gives us in effect au aunual average* of thirty-six inches. Our soil is so re ft ptivo that it is seldom that a stream discharges into tho sea. The soil is a great reservoir, and if the surface is harrowed frequently the land Is moist twelve months iv the year without ir rigation. At presont we have too much of a good thing. On the land where there is a clay subsoil, or on the north sido of olay hills situated like El Monte and Cienega, whero the water has to evapo rate from the soil instead of draining, the early sown grain is iv a measure drowned out, and has turned yellow. Quite a number of fanners in suoh lo calities, we learn will re-plow and re sow the land to wheat and barley which is apparently dying from too much water. This will probably bo a surprise to the people in the northern and cen tral portion who have ceased not day nor night to warn people against the drouths of Southern California. That cry has been now pretty effectually squelched. When grain has to bs sown the second time on account of too much moisture, it cannot be snfely stated that it is a dry country. As a matter of fact, taking into acuouut the moist atmosphere from the sea, the drainage from the moun tains and the regular rainfall, Loa Angeles is the best watered comity in the State. Weather Vicissitudes. The htfulness of the weather for the past few days has beon most remarka ble. On Saturday heavy showers of hail and rain fell dowu in the eastern part of the city, deluging the streets with water, while at the court-house there was a slight spriukle only. On Sunday eight different showers chased each other through the San Gabriel valley in quick succession. Between 1 and 2 o'clock p. m. the temperature fell suddenly twenty degrees, while a snow storm raged from San Fernando tunnel to La Canada v leaving about two inches of hail and snow. This was accompanied with thuudcr and lightning. At Pasadena a cheo-ful hailstorm occurred about 2 P. m., and made a stirring time, while a few slight showers eccurred in the city. The display of clouds along the moun tains was very impressive, and equalled anything along the Alleghanies or the Rockies. Yesterday there was another display in cloudland of beantiful cirrus, nimbus and cumulus clouds, while the wind veered to every point of the com pass and showers of rain were frequent but light. The temperature was very low, aud orchardists and vlneyardists must protect their property as much as possible. Sampling Works. The Herald last week announced the fact that the Sampling Works of Messrs. Olmsted ft Arey, at Daggett, would lie constructed promptly. To-day we take pleasure in announcing the fact that Mr, L. F. Olmsted, the manager, will start for the scene of operations by the first train. The lumber for tbe edifice has been sent forward from this city, and all tho machinery is ready. Mr. Olmsted expects to break ground to-day and push forward the work, which has been de layed by tbe floods, as fast as possible. Messrs. Arey and Olmsted have had a long experience in the mining and reduc tion of ores in Colorado, and will do a rushing business, that will help out many a miner who haa a good mine but no means for handling his ore. They will buy copper, gold or silver ores, and send them where they can be worked to the best advantage. In order to do this they will ship some kinds to San Fran cisco, others to Pueblo, Denver and Golden, in Colorado. They will thus make a market for ores that will double the mining trade of the city of Los An geles. What is now needed is the es tablishing of large reduction works in Los Angeles, to reduce these graded ores. Spiritualist's Anniversary.

Tbis year's flood, destroying the homes of from forty to fifty families and damaging other pfnperty to the amount of f200,000, haa demonstrated beyead pea adventure the fact that the low lauds are not suitable for residences. Tbe great number of new houses daily being built on tha hills weat of Vain street well shows that the people realize the advantages of a home on tha hills. The drawback heretofore haa been the lack of a street railroad, bnt thia ia soon to ba remedied by the Temple and Diamond Street Railroad, leading to the Yonng Ladies' Seminary, finally to cost $90,000, and passing through tbe streeta on which many of these lots are located.
