Several large bean fields arc almost totally ruined. One man who had ordered several hundred bein sacks says he will have use for half a dozen. It is only in certain localities, huwever, that the damage is so severe. In town the worst east wind for several years prevailed all day till about 3 o'clock. One or two screen doors which were .unfastened wore blown off. Few people ventured out during tne after noon, and the churches were sparsely at tended al the evening service. AXOTHEK ACCOUN T OF THE STORM. Mr. C. B. Booth of this city returned from Ventura on Sunday evening and reports the damage done to the beau crop as something very serious Mr. Booth said yesterday to a Herald reporter that the loss would amount, at a conservative estimate, to 40 per cent of the oean crop, and a large proportion of the corn aud apple crops "On Saturday afternoon Ventura coun ty bad the finest bean crop on record," he said, "but in the afternoon a hot wind came up. and Sunday morning by io o'clock fully 10 per cent of the bean crop was ruined. Mr. B. F. Kinney of Sespe told roe tbat his field of beans was en tirely desroyed. Mr. Charles Wasson of Springvale told me that lie hud a beauti ful crop on a 40-acre lot. but that he could not get a bushel now. "The wind was terrific; a number of buildings were unroofed and tho corn badly injured." A fTystery Explained VENTURA, Sept. 23.—Frank Tryce. who has just returned from Samuel Hill's ranch on tbe road betwen Springville and Simi, tells a story which explains a mystery and reveals a horrible crime. i. About two years ago Mr. Hill had a tenant,who with his wife and child lived on Mr. Hill's ranch. The nusband and wife appeared devoted to each other and seemed to bs happy together. Suddenly the wife and child disappeared and none knew how or where they bad gone. The man wa* suspected in spite of bis appar ent grief, of having murdered them, hut as no proof against him could be discov ered, he was allowed to go free, and the suppusiton that tbe wife bad deserted him was accepted a* a tact. A few days ago soma hoys were scram bling about under the house wbicb bad been occupied by the family and brought out a piece of clothing, which was ideri tilled oy Mrs. Hill as a part of tbe dress worn by the missing woman. Further investigation brought to light the wom an's body, buried beneath tbe very build ing in which she had lived, placed there by the man who killed her, it is sup posed. Investigations are being further made to lind the doJv of the child. The suspected man left the country shortly aiter the murder and his whereabouts is unknown. CARNIVAL PRIZES.

Sept. 23.-The action of tbe DOard of school directors in enlarging the field ot usefulness of that institution by the adoption of a practical business course, including bookkeeping,shorthand and typewriting, seems tv meet a popu lar want. When the opportunity was offered, yesterJay, at tbe high school, some thirty or more pupils wished to be enrolled for those studies. It is probable the shorthand class will much exceed tbat number. Professor W. H. Wagner, who has been chosen as the teacher of this branch, gave them an introductory lecture on the subject of shorthand ami made a good impression. He is evidently tbe man for tbe position, having been engaged in that line of teaching in the liongley Shorthand institute in this city for about ten years. The books adopted for this branch are the well-known American Manual of Phonography, the Reporter's Guide, and Phonographic Dictionary by Elias Long ley, formerly of Cincinnati, but for ten years past teaching in this city. It is safe to say that what Mr. I.ongley does not know of phonography is in the fu ture,not in the past or present, for he has been an author and teacher for forty-five years, except the time lie has spent in practicing the art. And beginning with th* war in 1861, until bis removal to Los Angeies in 1883, as city editor and short hand reporter on the Cincinnati Gazette and Commercial, hi has reported near ly all the groat speakers of the country. from Presidents Lincoln,Garfield, Hayes, Senators Thurman.

HENRY'S GOLD MINES The Story of a Sad-Eyed Man From Arkansas TOO GOOD TO BE STRAIGHT He Is Entirely Too Liberal in the Matter of Wages The Whole Thing on Its Face Is ol Suspi cious .Merit-How It Is to Be Worked On Sunday morning a modest little ad- I vertlloment appeared in tho papers to the effect that .'l"'i miners and laborers were wanted for gold mines in Araknsas at wages rangina from IfL'.oO to |fl per day, with board guaranteed at $3.50 por week. Applicants were directed 10 call al the Eureka grocery, coinor of Wall and Sixth streett.for further particulars. This little advertisement was supplemented yesterday by the following attractive , "dodger," whlcß was distributed quite freely in the localities where laboring men and those seeking employment most 00 congregate: Wanted—9oo miners nnd laborers. We have sumo gold mines ill Arkansas which we arc going lo open at once, and have decided"to take the above number of men from Los Angeles. Ia those not having enough money to pay lull fare we will advance part and deduct from wages. We will pay from $2.0il to $."> ncr day. Hoard guaranteed t $3,50 per week. Six mouths worn guarnteed. Must start by Ist of Oc ■tober. Call on W.Henry,Eureka grocery. Sixth and Wall streets. In view of the fact that there are hun dreds of men in Los Anireles wbo would jump at employment at $1.50 a day. or even $1, if they were sine of getting it. and thnt tho ruling rates for labor are even [ewer in Arkansas than on thi coast, a Herald reporter was detailed to investigate thu very liberal offer of Mr. Henry and ascertain, it possible, what there was back of it. Accordingly, a visit was made to the loealltv named thi Eureka grocery, between 7 and 8 o'clock anu the room wns dlmiy lighted by a coal oil liiinp ou top of the shelves. On one side were r.tneed several rows of Cal ifornia canned fruit and on the other was a small counter with a very modest array of staple groceries. Two hundred dollars would he a liberul estimate for ull the stock in sight. A sad-eyed man with a sanJy whisker was tilted back in a chair, apparently resting after his labors in ex plaining his plans to a man who stepped out of the store as the reporter stepped in. In answer to an inquiry the sad-eyed man modestly admitted that he was the Mr. Henry who wanted tho men, and having loosened up on tbe reporter suggesting that he would like lo become a member of the party il be could be convinced that tlie thing was not n fake, the sad eyed man talked very freely. No, theio wa no fake abjut his circular. Ho was able to make every assertion good. As to the ownership of tlie mine? Yes, he was the owner, he and his partner, and they were situated in tbe White lliver hills near Rogers junction and Selignian, on the line between Aritansas and Mis souri. He owned forty acres and his part ner forty more.ami if anyone doubted his ability to make good his offer he could put up tbe coin at once to convince him. As if' the character ot the mines, tbey wero very rich in free cold in a sort of slate formation; 110. the gold was not in the slate, but in dirt between tho layers of slate, which would wash out, 110 mills being required. There ware lead mines, ton. and work in abundance for all. as to transportation, yes, tbat bad all been arranged; By aspecial arrangement with the Santa Fe they would guarantee to de liver the men at the mines at $15 per head. Oh. no, he had not secured a $15 rate; that was what he would charge the men; it would cost bim a little more, but be was willing to pay that himself and trust to the future development ol the mines 10 get it hack. No; lie could not tell what the railroad rate was; these railroad companies are very suspicious and that was a secret between himself nnd the head railroad man. tie did not know bis name,and It would not be right lor him to give it away. As to advancing money lo those not Having euilicient to pay their fare,yes, tbat was bona tide, too. Every man who desired to go would have to deposit $5 if ho boarded himself in transit, or $7 if ho was boarded by the owners; this deposit was absolutely neo ossary, to make sure that the men would not back out: the balance of tbe trans portation would be deducted from Ihe first month's wages. Amplo provision had been made for feeding the men on the Way. and a bountiful supply of can ned goods, cakes, etc., would be taken along for this purpose. Yes. he wanted to start as soon after the Ist ol October as possible, as he did not want to wait un til tbe dead ot winter; he wanted to be back in Los Angeles in two months as tiis lungs w.rs weak nnd he could not st'nd tbe climate of the east. Had many called? Oh, yes, numberless Inquliers had heen to see about it. but very few had as yet made tho necessary deposit. How many? On, only Jifteen or twenty. If he could not get the necessary numher what would lie do? Why, return the money to those who had deposited it and abandon it—-at least so far as Los Angeles was concerned. As has been remarked, tbe sad-eyed man had said that his lungs ware wean, and th" long conversation was telling on him. Not a soul had called while the re porter was there, but the sad-eyed man is evidently of a hopeful turn of mind, and looks fur bettor returns from his "dodgers" today. Of course, Mr. Henry may be all right: there is juat about one chance in ten millions that his goldmines in Arkansas are there as be represents, and that be really wants the men he ad vertises for.
