PASADENA, Aug. 16.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) At the meeting of the city
council this morning as a board of equal
isation J. B. Miller appeared, but failed to
show sufficient reason for the assessment
on his Grand avenue property not being
raised. The assessment was therefore
raised from $2500 to $3300. After declaring
that the full duty of the board of equal
ization had been performed, the board ad
journed sine die. At the regular meeting

valuation. This per cent is apportioned
as follows to the various city fund's and
expenses: General fund, 75: library fund,
6; Are and sewer, IS; library sinking, 1.
According to the assessor's books the
assessed valuation of Pasadena city prop
erty is $8,4iH,260. The city clerk's estimate
of expenses for the fiscal year is $74,591.75.

ments Is $49,900. Estimated Income, other
than taxes, and cash on hand to apply on

QUEEN LIL'S GUARDIAN
JULIUS A. PALMER, A SAILOR
AND A GENIUS
Created Talk by His Queer Dress and
Mushroom Hunting—Wore High-
Julius A. Palmer, the Boston genius,
who, as special representative and pro
tector of Liliuokalani, ex-queen ot
Hawaii, is a short man with a big
head, a smotth face, keen eyes, hair
almost white and a voice that suggests
partial deafness. His manner is cour
teous, his method of pronouncing the
words "the queen" impressive, and his
reticence concerning the dusky ex-mon
arch's future movements superb. He
says he doesn't know what she will do
next, and there is etrongr probability
that he is telling the whole truth.
Though he would not attract attention
because of imposing size or majestic
bearing, Mr. Palmer, just now at least,
would be noticed anywhere on the
streets in a crowd. In this hot weather
he wears a Suck suit of immaculate
white, adorned with brilliantly polished
buttons of brass, His collar stud is as
large as his coat buttons; it contains a
huge sparkler, and his neckwear is so
arranged that the sparkler's rays are
at all times visible.
Mr. Palmer always has been an out
of-the-ordinary Individual. He was born
near Boston, and his family is one of
the oldest and best-known in the Bay
state. A brother, George H. Palmer,
Is a professor at Harvard, and another
brother is in business in this city.
WENT TO SEA EARLY
Julius A. went to sea at an early
age, and soon worked his way up from
the comparatively low level of his earli
est services to be first mate, and then
got to be captain of a sailing vessel
trading in different parts of the world,
after which he made a number of prof
itable voyages, the proceeds of which
enabled him to retire from seafaring
years ago. He is still a registered sea
captain, however, and possesses a cer
tificate from the proper United States
marine authorities In Boston that he is
competent to navigate steam vessels
on either the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.
He thinks President Dole would have
run him out of the islands except for
this certificate. Long before he aban
doned the profession of sailoring he
showed an aptitude for literary compo
sition. His earliest works are all short
stories, but after he left the sea he put
cut a book entitled "One Voyage,"
which was decidedly successful, as far
as sales go.
Besides his short stories and his book,
Mr. Palmer wrote a great many news
paper articles, mostly treating on the
curious parts of the world he had visited
and the people that dwell therein, and
these were so well done that his work
was always popular in the office of the
Boston Transcript. It was because of
his standing there that he was sent to
Hawaii to write up the situation there
for the Transcript, and later for the-New
York Evening Post. His employers be
ing in favor of the native government
and against annexation, his own sym
pathies were enlisted in that direction,
and he naturally became persona grata

ABOUT HAWAII AND MUSHROOMS
But Mr. Pdlmer's most notable achieve
ments from hi* own point of view were
neither journalistic nor diplomatic. He
was the first man In the United States
seriously to take up the study of mush
rooms, and he is proud of that. He had
learned abroad of the excellent qualities,
of these growths, and and it grieved him
that his countrymen, with millions on
millions of nutritious, delicious mush
rooms maturing every day all about
them, had not the sense and thrift to
pluck and eat. As his studies of Ameri
can mushrooms continued his grief in
creased, and he began to write about
them. Many columns of newspaper ar
ticles and several books were thus pro
duced. One of the varieties that greatly
interested him in his mushroom days was
that which invariably selected an elm
tree for its growing ylace. He found

WORE "HIGH WATER PANTS"
Mr. Palmer was rather noted in Boston
as- a man. who felt more comfortable in
eccentric dress—not picturesque, but
simply queer. His trousers-, at the time
he was engaged in hunting the elm tree
mushroom, were often, dlsrespeetfully
referred to by the gaping mob as "high
water pants," and the other articles of
his attire matched his trousers.
He was also noted during his Boston
life for his chummlness with persions of
and Italians. For weeks and sometime-,
months he would spend most of his time
among those who hardly spoke Knglish
at all, and his acquaintances, who did
not understand hlsmotives, used to com
ment wonderingly upon his taste. To
his intimates it was clear enough—he Is
extremely fond of modern languages,
and, though he could learn French. Ital
ian or Spanish from teachers, he could
learn these tongues satisfactorily only
by living among those who us>ed them
habitually and colloquially. Hismethod
of study has proved to be most success

It may be that he was turned from the
religion of his forefathers while study

Catholic devotees. At all events, he

AN ODD GERMAN
His Heart and Liver have Swapped
Charles Schuppel, a German. laborer
living on the north side, is in several re
spects one of the queerest and rarest of
freaks. Nature took unusual liberties
with Phupple and played seldom
pranks on him. Evidently she was In a
happy mood the day she played with the
foreigner, for, despite the oddity of her
.antics-. Schuppel suffers no evil effects
Nearly all of the German's vital or
gans are entirely out of their proper
place, and always have been. The
heart, instead of being on the left side
of the body, is on the right, and the liver,
which should be on the right side, is on
the left. The position of the stomach is
the reverse of that in which it is ordi
So far no one has been able to offer
the least explanation of the remarkable
case. Those most conversant with it
say that there is no explanation, as it is
simply an Inexplicable freak in natur;.
As the man suffers no pain, sickness or
lnconveniin.ee from the peculiar location
of his vital organs, there is no neeessitv

organs were found to be in the unnatural
position as stated above.
It is seldom the pulsation of the heart
of anyone can be detected by any move

by the eye. In the case of Schuppel the
beat of the heart is so powerful or else
that organ is so close to the ribs that
the throb is easily detected by a pro
nounced movement on the surface of the
body between the fifth and sixth ribs on
the right breast.
"Schuppel is a very rare and remarka
ble freak," said Dr. Halselden. "His
peculiarities, physically, are abnormal.
I have heard of one or two cases In wblcn
the heart was placed by nature on the
wrong side, but I don't think a case has
ever been known before in which an

he, '"I was working in a cement factory
in Heidelberg, Germany. The dust in
my department of the works was terri

"I could find no way to keep it out.
After a while it became nauseating and
in a few months I was taken very ill. I
was so sick that I was removed to tha
big Heidelberg hospital. Up to that
time I never knew there was anything
unusual about the location of any o!
my vital organs. The surgeons per

cement that had gotten into my stom

they discovered that my heart was on

OVERCOMING A PREJUDICE
How Napoleon Induced the French to
Accept an Obnoxious Coin
In order to indiuce the great public to
buy their tobacco, Ingenious Yankee
manufacturers in the past frequently re
sorted to the plan of packing in money
with their packages of tobacco. Thll
scheme is> not new, however, and nono
less than Napoleon I. is said to have
originated a similar idea. When he
first introduced the five-franc coins it
was found that people did not take
readily to the innovation, and in some
cases acceptance of these coins was re
fused. To overcome this antipathy the
great Corsican, who knew the human
character well, gave out that in one. ot
these coins! there would behiddten a small
piece of asbestos with an order upon tha
Bank of France for 100.000 francs ($20,

coins is great, andi they were but seldom
returned to the treasury in any other
way but cut in half. Although no one
