Santa Ana, Oct. 21.—Parents in Santa
Ana who have the responsibility of
raising boys, in many oases find tbe
taa 1 . auything but a pleasant one. It
has turned out in many instances that
the boy that should have proved a joy
to the father's heart has brought noth
ing but sorrow and gray hairs. Only
l ist week two boys belonging to respect
ablfl families were sent to the reform
echool from this city because it was an
impossibility tor their parents to con
trol them. This morning as a Hirald
reporter was walking through the resi
dent portion of the city, on Fourth
utreet, his attention was attracted to a
couple of boys, one about 1 5 years old
and the other 10 years. The older one
was attempting to force the other to
accompany him, but the small one was
resisting with all his power. On in
quiry it was learned that the young
scamp had ran away from home
three days previous and had been
hiding away from his parents, sleeping
in loutbuildinge during the night. He
would slip into the house of his parents
when all were asleep and carry away
sufficient provisions to last him through
the day. He attempted to take a horse
and buggy belonging to his father but
was prevented b> some of the family.
This little fellow, scarcely in knee pants,
is the son of a well-to-do and highly re
spectable citizen of Santa Ana, and what
could have induced him to leave his
home is a mystery.
Nothing has been heard from Grimes,

.1. 0. Sheppard, who recently built
two long fills on the Botsford ranch, has
just completed three across the same
wash running through the Wilshire
estate. Now the proper thing for all
parties owning property between the
Botsford and Wilshire ranches is to
come to the front and do likewise. It
will not cost near as much to put in
these fills now as it will in a few years,
and the longer the matter is neglected
the more damage will be the result. In
some places the wash is between 200
and 300 feet wide. If this matter had
been taken in hand years ago and prop
erly handled many acres of the best
land in the Fullerton and Placentia dis
tricts could have been saved. Now is
the time to do something.

John Kennedy Fata a Bullet la His
San B«b»ardino, Oot. 21.—Another
suicide has been added to the long list
of self-slaughterers, and, as is usually
the case, tbe self-murderer committed
the act in a hotel. He deviated from
the general rule by only writing a line,
while most of them leave a letter be
hind, in which they give their reasons
for ending life. Last Thursday John
Kennedy strolled into the office of the
New St. Charles hotel and placed his
name on tbe register, and was assigned
room 138 without any questions being
asked. He said he had just come from
Arrowhead Springs and was an archi
tect. He took his meals in the hotel,
and retired both Thursday and Friday
nights at about 10 o'clock. To
day the housekeeper tried the door
of the room assigned tbe unfortunate,
and as the key was still in the door, she
thought the inmate was still sleeping, so
she did not disturb him. Tbe room
was tried again at 2:40 this afternoon,
but was still locked. Mr. Urban and an
employee effected an entrance and
found Kennedy lying on the floor dead.
He had undressed himself and lay down
on the floor and wrapped the sheet
around his body, and, placing a pistol
to his head, pulled the trigger with his
thumb. Powder marks were visible over
the right eye. On the margin oi a news
paper he had written: "Wire George
Hinds, Wilmington, Cel.," and had ad
dressed the same to the coroner of San
Bernardino. He had carefully tied his
clothing up, and had even gone to the
trouble to tie a towel around his head
to keep his lower jaw from falling. Tbe
coroner took charge of the remains and
removed them to an undertaking parlor,
where tbe inquest will be held Monday
at 0 o'clock.
