THE RAILWAY LINES. Danger of Waikoun-Tralni Laid Off—Other natters. Owing to the lowering disposition of the skies yesterday, a general spirit of gloom pervaded the railway offices. Much of the work which has been done on the tracks was necessarily of a tem porary sort, and it was feared that if the rain began again with any great severity it would all be a melancholy case of wasted labor. When a bridge is washed away, if pile-drivers can be bad immedi ately, it is replaced in the solid and permanent form that it had been in before the accident. The roads, however, have only two or three pile-drivers at their command, and to get the trains running as soon an possible it is necessary to get along with crib work—that is piles of ties in a log-cabin form—in many of the places where damage has been done. Work of this sort will not stand much strain and it is therefora replaced as soon as possible by stronger. Both the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe are hard at work with large gangs of men on all parts of tho line where dam age has been done, getting the road bed and the bridges into solid shape. Never theless, if violent rains come on again, much of the work which has been done will go to waste. In order to be on the safe side, and take no chances on accidents, the roads have declared off during the storm. No trains ran last night. Ths Southern Pacific has a small washout near Aurant, in the same spot where there was a large one during the last storm. The Santa Fe is in trouble again in the Cajon pass, this time not very serious. A quantity of mud and water washes down from the sloping sides upon the track whenever it rains, and thus delays trains for a short time. There is alao a little difficulty on this line near Garvanza, which can be re paired in a short time if the rain stops. W. B. Beamer has been appointed Trainmaster for the Santa Fe in this city, in the place of J. T. Wheldon, who has resigned. Tbe Sauta Fe line cele brated the new year by making some re duction in passage rates. The fare to San Diego from this city will hereafter be $5.00 instead of $5.70, and a number of other changes will be made on the line between San Bernardino and San Diego. The telephone at 'the Southern Pacific office connects with the room occupied by a considerable corps of telegraph operators. During the last two weeks, while the movements of trains have been uncertain, it has rung an average of twenty times an hour day and night, and some one of the boys had to leave his "ticker" to answer questions about individual trains and the general condi tion of the road. They came to a formal decision yesterday that the exigencies of the case required that come one indi vidual should be selected to answer calls, and the title of "Office Liar" was conferred upon him. Thus far no one has had the temerity to announce him self as a candidate. A GOOD ACT. A Family of Nine Fed by Landlord Helnbart. Several days ago, when the trains on the Southern Pacific were being held back to wait for the waahouts to be filled in, a negro family, consisting of a womau and her eight children, arrived at the Wolfekill depot. The woman's husband was living at San Jose, and he had sent her just money enough to pay her fare and that of her children from Texas to California, and for the cupport of the family. Wnen they found themselves caught in this city with no prospect of getting out for several days, they were in despair, there being no way for them to get anything to eat. The case waß reported to Landlord Reinhart, of the Southern Pacific depot eating-house, who promptly took charge of the unfortunates and fed them during the four or five days that they were com pelled to wait.

The sum of $200 was appropriated for turning Los Angeles river into its old channel. Tbe Sale Woes Tnrough. The Hbrald on Thursday reported that negotiations were about closed for tbe purchase of fifty feet on Main street, west side, just south of Second. Of this twenty-five feet belonged to Mr. Morton and twenty-five to E. T. Hughes. The THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: SATURDAT MORNING, JANUARY 4. 1890. sale in the deeds is reported at $40,000 for the fifty feet, or $800 a foot. There are easements on the property in the way of party walls on the north and south sides,worth several hundred dollars. Tbe propt rty is a great bargain to the buyer, who is a new-comer here, named Daniel Jefferson Harris. It was a cash transac tion throughout. There were thirty-seven sales of real estate recorded yesterday, the total amount being $111,315. That is not bad for dull times. LA GRIPPE. A Lear tied Doctor Wko Seems to Have tbe Urlp on It. Editors Herald—The grippe, or epi demic catarrh, is also called influenza and epidemic hoarseness on account of the hoarseness which is caused by the illness. The name "grippe" seems to come from the word chrypka, which in the Pole language means hoarseness. The grippe is a general epidemic dis ease, clinically characterized by' catar rhal forms diffused especially through the respiratory organs, with phenomena generally intense and disproportioned to those which are always found in the simple bronchitis, in the laryngitis and in the corizza (cold in the head.) Examining the history of this disease, we find that the first great epidemic ap peared in the year 1580 and spread over nearly all of Europe. Afterwards it ap peared again at short intervals in 1595, 1626,1712, 1730, 1733, 1737, until the last epidemic of 1830 and 1833, and finally in 1860 at Strasbnrg. About the etiology of this disease we may say that in spite of the studies which have been made, still it has not yet been well determined, and seems to be a special irritant microbe existing in the atmosphere. In fact, instead of following the usual way of contact of the cholera, the grippe spreads capriciously, without following any rule, and at times with such rapidity as to exclude the possibility of saying it might have been introduced by the usual means of communication. We know that in 1833, with the inter val of a few days, the epidemic made successively its appearance in Moscow, then Odessa, Alexandria and Paris, and that of 1847 in the period of a few months invaded Spain, Newfoundland, New Zea land, Valparaiso, Syria, the western shore of Africa, and it even reached Hong Kong. As this disease spreads especially dur ing the cold and wet seasons, and some times under the influence of the north and northeast winds, some believe the cause of the disease is to be found in the sudden changes of the temperature in relation with the ozone, and Professor Boekel, in Strasburg, and recently Schonbein, snstained the idea that an excess of ozone in the air may act as an irritant of the respiratory organs, and be the cause of this epidemic. But they have found contradictory facts; and as a mat ter of illustration, how many of such changes happen during the year in the several different parts of the world without being followed by the grippe! We shall not give here any special descriptions of the symptoms which ac company the disease, as they are well known and have been fully described by different writers, and will only say that although it may indiscriminately strike every age, Bex and constitution, still it seems' more inclined to attack weak people, already predisposed or suffering from bronchial or pulmonary affections. The grippe can hardly be mistaken for corizza (cold in the head), laryngitis and simple bronchitis, because it differs, viz : for tbe rapid and extensive spreading of the epidemic and also for the intensity of the general nervous phenomena which in the other already mentioned diseases have a secondary importance in direct relation to the local phenomena. The grippe generally is a disease of a mild character, lasting from five to ten days, but increases in length and be comes dangerous when complicated with capilar bronchitis, lobular pneu monia or gastro-enteritis, which com plications are often found in Europe in the present epidemic. I will not repeat here what has been said by others in regard to the cure of the grippe, only I would insist on the necessity of a careful consideration of the general symptoms of nervous pros tration.

Bailey, a native of lowa, of Pasadena, aged 28. Alexander Stewart, a native of Ire land, of this city, aged 29, to Anna Ducha, a native of Poland, of this city, aged 23. A. W. Jurden, a native of Vermont, of Stockton, aged 26, to Etta Hedden, a na tive of Illinois, of this city, aged 24. Garrett Goei Today. Today F. M. Garrett will probably be taken to the penitentiary. He was to have gone yesterday, but was allowed to remain so as to make some provision for Ella. It is probable that Deputy Sheriff Wray will be trusted with the task of taking Garrett to San Quentin. At Auction Today. W. E. Beeson will sell a full line of furniture, bedding, carpets, etc.; also a number of good horses, mules, etc., at 10 a. m., corner of Second and Fort. Ben 0. Rhoades, Auctioneer. . Directory—Caution. j Frequent complaints are heard about the disreputable methods of some so called directory agents. Cases are cited where orders have been tampered with and amounts raised after the order had been taken. Frequently cash in ad vance has been demanded. No reputable firm will resort to such methods. It is time to give warning to the public to see that you are ordering from a responsible, reliable house like that of R. L. Polk & Co. They published the only California State directory ever issued in 1888, and have now in preparation their next book for 1890. They employ only carefully trained agents, and, having abundant means and ample experience, produce a work that is a credit to the Btate and one of great value to business men. A Flattering Endorsement. The judges on musical instruments at the Centennial Exhibition, Philadelphia, 1876, after severe tests of the pianos of more than forty different makers from all parts of the world recognized tho merits of the Sohmer pianos, and wrote a flattering report on them, recommend ing for them tLe highest reward in their power to grant—a Medal of Merit and Diploma of Honor, which were unani mously decreed by the TJni ed States Centennial Commission.

Samuel Baker, a clerk In one of the principal J , ew .f \ r J B Ore K S °? 1116 clt y. » n< l who lives at 1,934! i Bush street, is in luck. At the last drawing of the Louisiana State Lottery Com pany he found himself suddenly possessed of the snug sum of $15,000. having purchased a coupon of ticket No 93, which drew the capital prize. As soon as his good fortune became known Mr. Baker's frienas came about him to offer their congratulations Ono of the number was a reporter of tbe Call, to whom Mr. Baker said: "For years past I have been in .he habit of bu; ing four or Svo coupons each mouth This time I bought four, smong which was No. 93. lhis coupon haa quite a history. The agent took it first to a woman who keeps a variety .tire onLarkiii strett. She refused to take It, as she sala so smnll a number never won much of a prize. He then sold It to a man down town, who kept it in his pocket for over two hours, when he returned it to the ageut, asking for an other and larger uumber. I guess he is kicking bimsell over it now. Then the agent came to me and sold me four tickets, among which was this one. 1 took <hem without paying much attention to tho numbers, and I was much sur prised when i saw that 1 had wou a s'ico of the capital prize.'' "Whatdo you intend to do with the money.'" asked tho reporter. "I shall let it rest for the present," answered Mr. Baker, "until I see some good opportunity for investing it advantageously and securely. It can draw interest until I have a chance to dispose of the capital in some enterpiise that will prove both safe and profitable."— |Sau Francisco (Cal.) Call, November 30th.

Inherited Scrofula. Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) cured my little boy of hereditary scrofula, which bnike out all over his face. For a year he had suffered, and I had given up all hopes of his recovery, when at length I decided to use S. S. S. Af ter using a few bottles be was entirely cured. Not a symptom now remains of tbe disease. This was three years ago. MRS. T. L. MATHERS, Mathersville, Miss. In the early part of last year I had a vio lent attack of rheumatism, from which I was confined to my bed for over three months and at times was unable to turn myself in bed, or even raise the cover. A nurse had to be in constant attendance day and night. I was so feeble that what little nourishment I took had to be given me with a spoon. Af ter calling in the best local physicians, and trying all other medicines without receiving any benefit, I was induced by friends to try Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) I discontinued all other medicines, and took a course of S. S. S. thirteen small bottles, which uffected a com plete and permanent cure. L. C. BASSET, El Dorado, Kansas.
