The History of a Day South of the Tehachepi
His Unsafe Way of Selling Safes
to Pasadenans
Washington's Birthday Observed by
School Children
Amateur Theatricals-Convention of Baptist
Missionary Societ> —Notes and
Personal Mention
Pasadena, Feh. 21.—During the past
three weeks this city has been Infested by
an exceedingly smooth individual who
went under the name of Fairbanks and
claimed to be representing the large firm
of safe manufacturers of that name. Thut
the fcliow is smooth goes, without saying,
when it may be mentioned that he de
frauded eight or ten of our leading mer
chants of sums ranging from $10 to 900
and has got away, leaving no clue to his
whereabouts. The fellow made his last
appearance in the city Monday evening,
and since that time has been eagerly
sought for by many confiding ones. The
police were notified, but have endeavored
to keep the matter quiet in the hope of
locating the man. The Herald man, how
ever, dropped onto the affair and gives
the results. It is about three weeks ago
that Fairbanks arrived iv Pasadena, ac
companied by a woman, whom he Intro
duced as his wife. Ile engaged rooms at a
fashionable boarding house on North Kair
Oaks avenue, and was ready for con
His manner of operation was to learn
of some business lit*in which was in need
of a safe and present himself as a travel
ing representative of the firm of Fair
bank A Co., Chicago.
A bargain being struck at an exceed
ingly low price, the man stating that he
was introducing the goods on the Coast,
an advance deposit was asked for on the
contract, which was usually forthcoming.
In this way no less than eight linns are
known to have been duped for various
su m«. When this scheme had been
worked for all there was in it he took a
DOW tack and tried the bogus check dodge.
In thin he was successful in at least one
case, that of a leading drug firm, where a
check for $28,715 was cashed the night be
fore he left. The cheek was drawn on a
San Francisco linn and was returned as
no good. How many more people he may
have victimized for small amounts is not
known, but in all he managed to get out
of town with it good Lot of Pasadena
Fairbnnk is described as a man ol
about ;i5 years, of line appearance, a
smooth talker, making a display ol a
number of diamonds and claiming to be
an expert in the line of precious stones.
Last of a* Series of Instructive Lectures on
This Subject
Pasadena, Feb. 21.— The vestry of the
Tniversalist Church was crowded last
evening at the fourth and last lecture by
Professor G. Wharton Janes in the Uni
versity Extension course upon Memory.
Ihe special subject taken up was the
physical basis of memory, from which an
interesting aud practical lecture was
given. In the process of developing
memory the act of reviewing is all essen
tial. It is this which gives a lasting per
manency to the memory, and it should
always follow- observation and reflection.
The sneaker did not believe fully in the
old idea that a thing once known is never
fully forgotten. He Likened the memory
of many people to a man who lias money
in a bank and wishes to cash a check',
but finds the cashier out and the presi
dent cone to Canada. The money is safe,
but you can't get it when you want it.
Mental impressions may or may not be
lasting. In many cases a second Im
pression may entirely obliterate the tirst
and true impression. In this way
many of the seemingly inexplicable con
tradictory statements by reliable wit
nesses may be explained, and we should
be exceedingly lenient in judging of the
Statements of others. The speaker gave
as an illustration a case in his own expe
rience where he had added an im
agl nary circumstance to an Inci
dent when relating it afterward
which was an actual misstatement
of the truth, though made in good faith.
The only to make impressions lasting and
correct is by review. The will is a strong
factor in the cultivation of memory and
should be called into use. When a person
forgets,there are two ways of recalling the
lost idea. One is by reference, the other
by will power. The speaker usually
used the latter, but would in most cases
recommend reference, If it was followed
up until the memory would recall without
assistance. The memory must be strength
ened by degrees, and in this respect the
best way is to make haste slowly. Taking
up the physical basis of memory, atten
tion was called to the morning as the best
time tor mental work. Professor James
found his best time for work lour hours
before breakfast in the morning. It is
never best to eat a hearty meal before at
tending a lecture which one wishes to
remember, or to attempt hard mental
effort. Stimulants are 'the curse of the
nineteenth century. They are of no possi
ble benefit to a healthful organism, and do
much harm. The lei-tun- closed with a
few practical illustrations in rapid writ
ing, which was held to be largely the
result of mind power.
