Artesia, Los Angeles Co., 1 April 4, 1887. / Editor Herald—l was glad to see you print information about planting vines. In tbis part therefore a great many just starting in the business, and we bave to gut the experience of others to assist us. It will be but a few years before all the land that is tit for grapes, will be planted with vines, the prohibi tionists to tat contrary notwithstanding. Tbe fact is so long as Nebraska can sell oorn here for less than SI per cental, we must turn our attention to something else. 1 was amused at what Mr. Galley said in regard to assessing the coin in the<bnnks,f asing their minds,and consci ences, by Bend.ng the coin to New York to purchase bonds, etc. No doubt the same individuals when Sunday comes are among Ihe most pious. Speaking about assessing, we small farmers thought we were assessed high enough last y-ar, but we know we arc cinched bad this year, from two to three times as much. For the first time vines are as sessed, three-year-old vines, $21 per acre, and a raise every year up to eight years. This is hard on a working man, having to wait three years before getting any returns from them and then assessed like that. We would like to know if tbe vines in every oounty in tbe Slate are -assessed like that. Notwithstanding, I noticed blanks used by the assessor con tain no separate place for assessing vines, but is put down with the barns and houses at improvements on the reality. One reason given for defeating Bilderrain la it year was the idea that the large ranchos were not assessed as they ought to be, thereby escaping pay ing their just taxes, bnt the small farm ers must be convinced by this time that there is nothing gained to them by hav ing Mr. Mason assessor. To be sure, Republican smart Alecks say it will make no difference, taxes won't be any higher. The man that gets that off must be either a fool or knave. The State will require 70 cents on the . $100, and if the tax levy is lower this year we shall lose on all money and - mortgages aud tbe farmers must make it up. J Bnt time will fell; but we have about -made up our minds that we shall pay 1 very dear for our Republican whistle. Truly yours, Georoe Frampton. Army Orders. Headquarters Department of - !

Tl:e etui of the fracas between Mrs. Florence Cowles, Frank Ayers and Geo Cowles has not yet been reached Yesterday Justice Custin fined Mrs. Cowles $3 and Frank Ayers $50, aud discharged P. Garcia, who, according to the evidence, only tried to protect the child. George Cowles and his wife, Florence Copies, were arrested on a charge of cruelty to children on account of the infant, who was mentioned in yesterdiy's Herald as having been in jured. When the baby was placed in charge of a lady, it was found to be in a horrible condition. It was covered with inherited sores, and was liierally •live with vermin and maggots. It is not thought the baby can survive the inhuman treatment it has received. Ihe defendents will be examined tbis morn ing iv Justice Austin's court. Steamer Passengers.

PILES are f requeutly preceded by a sen«e of weight In tbe back, loins and lower part of tho abdomen, causing tbe patient to sup pose he hasßome affection ol the kidneys or neighboring organs. At times, symptoms of indigestion are present, flatulency, un easiness of tbe stomach, etc. A moisture like perspiration, producing a very dlsa jireeable itching, after getting warm, is j common attendant. Blind, bleeding and Itching piles yield at once to the application of Dr. Bosauko's Pile Remedy, which acts dlreelly upon the parts aftocted, absorbing the tumors, allaying the intense itching, and effecting a permanent cure.
