Stockton, Cal., May 28. — Borchers
pitched a good game today and tho re
sult waa a victory for the Angels by a
acore of 10 runs, aa against one for
Stockton. The Angela bunched five hits
in the firat and got five runs. In the last
they got their hita together again and
brought in three men. The hits that
Stockton made were scattered. Mc-
Canley was given a home run on a
grounder that the crowd thought was a
foul. Whitehead made some notable

Ban Francisco, May 28.—This morn

Oaklanda and Ban Franciscos waa won
by the latter by a acore of B to 0. The
victors played a fine game in the field
and Knell kept the hits down. Homer
pitched winning ball outside of two
innings, when he became unsteady and
runs resulted.
The afternoon game was won by Oak
land by a score of 7to 6. nan Francisco
heldthe lead up to tbe ninth inning when
Griffiths turned the tables by batting a
borne run with two men on bases. The
game was an exciting one. Attendance

yesterday afternoon. When Norria

abroad that he would be engaged by
Finn to play aecond base and captain
the tailend club. Now Finn never con
templated doing anything of the kind,
hut his playere accepted the report aa
true, and etated that the would not play
under a man ao cordially disliked aa the
former Oakland captain. When Finn
heard of the atatements of hia men he
resolved to ahow the playere that he,
not they, waa managing "the olub and

Loa Angeles teams were billed to play
on the home grounds of the former club,
and Tip O'Neil appeared in a Stockton
uniform. The balance of Finn'a play
era refused to go on the field with
O'Neil, and they were fined $100 each
and anapended for the balance of the
aeaaon. Tbe game waa declared for
feited to Loa Angelea by a score of 9 to 0.
Wednesday waa pay day in the Stock
ton team, but Finn received a tip re
garding the intention of hi* men and
eiatponed the payment of salaries to
onday next, and was consequently
enabled to deduct the fine* from the
wage* of hi* employes.
Laat night the trouble was partly set
tled by the aale of tbe Stockton fran
chise to John W. Moore, who managed

Bo much haa been aaid about tho diffi
culty of making good country roada
Without involving a great outlay of
money (hat it seems rather presuming
to tako a contrary view of tbe aubject,
but 1 think tho matter has been much
exaggerated, and that in any part of the
country where clay, hardpnn, gravel or
iiaintograted rock can bo found it ia
quite easy to got excellent roada at com
paratively little expense. I speak from
some practical experience acquired in
roadmoking in a very wild and hilly re
gion of northern Now Jersey, where we
are accuatomed to work ont onr taxes
on 111 or more mites of pnblio highway,
and by adopting the following ayatem
we imvo found it easy to koep the roada
in auch good condition that they can bo
driven over at ail times with speed, com
fort and ploasrare.
Tho proper timo to herein •work or re
pairs is in tho early spring, jnet after
the frost oomoa ont of the ground—aa
Boon as the roads have thoroughly settled
and dried out. Where the road ia old,
with a good, solid bed, tho first thing to
bo done is to cover it all over with a
light dressing of gravelly material, and
when possible finish it off with a top
coating of hardpun, but avoid putting it
on too thickly, lost tbe going becomo
heavy, as it. is slow to dry out. Loam ia
worso than useless, booanse it never
packs property and makes mud.
Care muat bo taken to raise tho road
np toward tho center and give it a
slight elevation at tho crown, but only
just enough to ahed the water on either
aido into the gutters. On a level
si raight road the crown should only bo
■lightly convex, for rounding up a- nar
row road in tbe middle la objectionable,

of forcing wheels of vehicles to run al

rapid destruction of tbe road by pre
venting the water from ro aching the
As fast ac tho now material can be
laid on it sbonld be very carol'ally raked
over to removo all the large atones aud
an many of tho smaller on<» as possible,
for where thi* preoawtion is neglected
until the etrsff packs down hard, which
happens in a few days, the stones be
come so firmly embedded that they aro
not only difficult to remove, bnt soon
cause the road to wear in humps and
bumps, and later in the season, dnring
the dry weather, they work up continu
ally and become a source of annoyance
and danger.
The gutters should then be carefully
cleaned by removing from them all de
posits of mild, decayed leaves or branches
which have collected there during the
winter months. Never allow this stuff
to be heedlessly thrown along the edges
of the gutter or on the backs above
tiiem. for tho ftret ratna will surely wash
all back to its old placo, and the work
haa to be done over again.
Another practical mason in favor of
keeping the gutters froo just after the
roads are ftrnt repaired ia that when the
heavy spring and summer showers have
washed away the greater portion of the
good, new coating it is at once caught
and retained in the gutters, ready to be
used the find timo the road neoda patch
ing, whan, a man or two can quickly put
it in frrflt dags order by simply shovel
ing back the material into its old place
again and then raking it over.
In the early spring, while tho gravel
or liordj>an is still sticky or heavy, the
process of drying out and packing down
can be greatly aceelemrtod by koeptng
sumo one raking over the road to level
off and smooth down tho ruts as fast as
they arc made by tbe cutting in of the
wheels, instead of allowing them to wear
down deeper and deeper, and to furnish
euro channels for the wash of water,
which adds to the difficulty and expense
of repairing.
This method is quicker, easier and far
more economical than rolling, which re
qTtirea a pair of horses, and it is surpris
ing how great a thatance a smart worker
can get over and put in perfect order
durum a day. By repeating this raking
onco or twice, according to the condition
of tho road and the amount of travel
upon it, the surface will pack down
quite as hard and even aa that of a park
Whenever a mud puddle appears, aw
ing to sumo slight depression, tn a place
so shaded by trees or shadows of hills
that tbe sun loses its power, it should
never be left to dry out slowly, day after
day giving the wheels a chance to cut
into it more deeply, but as soon as discov
ered a cartload of good, dry gravel should
at once be dumped into it, then raked
off, tamped down and perhaps reraked
until it packs hard and smooth. —Sarah

Paul Hebbler'B Attempt to Kill
His Wife and Himself.
She Will Recover, Bnt He Did His
Work on Hlmielf Well.
A. Teacher or Languages Tires or Do
mestic and Other Troubles and
Puts an and to Every
thing Last Night,
After beating and stabbing hia wife,
Professor Paul Hebbler, teacher of lan
guages, ended hia amusement laat night
by aending a bullet into his lefc breast,
a quarter of an inch above bis heart.
The man was conveyed In a dying con
dition to tbe receiving hospital, where
Police Burgeon Bryant pronounced hia
death to be only a matter of a couple of
hours at moat.
The circumstances, aa nearly as conld
be ascertained last night were aa foliowa :
Ilebbler bad been quarrelling with
hia wife all day , and returned home
late laat night in a furious passion.
After upbraiding the woman for some
time his rage grew uncontrollable, and
approaching ber he struck her, black
ening her eye, following up the blow by
drawing a small knife, with which lie
stabbed her between tbe shoul
der blades, not, however, inflict
ing a dangerous wound. By this
time the neighbors had heard the dis
turbance and Offioer Fay hurried up to
tbe house, 730 Commercial street. The
man'a wife and two children were
standing outaide in a terror-stricken
condition and warned the officer and
Dr. W. A. Dunton, who accompanied
him, tbat Hebbler waa armed.
Officer Fay, however, poshed the by
standers on one side, entered the front
room and saw Hebbler standing in the
rear apartment, with his revolver in his
right hand. The officer bad barely en
tered when there was a flash and a re
port, aad Officer Fay thinking the man
had shot at bim, inatinctively darted to
one side and drew hia pistol. But be
fore the smefce had cleared away there
waa the aound of a heavy fall and enter
ing the room Hebbler was seen lying on
hia face in a pool of blood.
"Call my wife and my daughter," was
all he said before he lapaed into in
coherency. Dr. Dunton immediately
mad* a rapid examination and found
that the bullet had gone clean through
tbe body of the would-be iniolde, enter
ing a little above the heart, and after
piercing Its way through, had emerged
under the left eboulder.
The little room wa* atill heavy witb
tbe smell of gunpowder when a Herald
reporter arrived.
There waa nothing to be got from the
nearly unconaclou* man, and the re
porter turned hia attention to Mra.
She (aid tbat her husband had
threatened early in tbe day to kill ber
and bimaelf afterwards. She had been
afraid of him (or aome time. He waa
alwaya displaying hiß pistol, and the
neighbor* had alao complained of bis
shooting in tbe air. The woman
added that she thought he
had been drinking a iittie in the day,
but not enongh to prevent hia knowing
what he waa about. Just then the pa
trol wagon arrived and the stretcher
waa breugbt into the room. The
wounded man aaemed to recover a little
and called for hie wife to embrace him.
Distracted with grief the woman threw
herself on hia almost cold body, the
two little children standing by with
acared faces. Then the body waa placed
in the wagon and taken to tbe hospital.
Hebbler ia a Swiss, 39 years of age,
and baa lived in Loa Angelea for several
years. He ha* had frequent trouble
with hia wife before, the police often
being called upon to quell the disturb
ance* railed by him.
