LOS ANGELES COUNTY
PASADENA, Jan. 21.—(Regular Cor
respondence.) Mail service by electric
car between Los Angeles, Pasadena and
Altadena will probably go Into effect
about February 1. The postal author
ities have been discussing such a move
for some time, as the present and past
service by the steam road has been no
toriously bad. Manager Smith last
night accepted a proposition from thi
postal authorities at Washington, giv
ing a specification, naming a price and
asking If the electric road would give
the specified service for the specified
price. This service calls for ten round
trips on week days and four round trips
on Sundays and holidays between sta
tions A and C in Los Angeles and Pasa
dena. The service to station Aln Pasa
dena will be less frequent. The electric
company will see to the delivery of the
malls from the oars to the several post
offices along the route. The mail will
be carried in pouches on the regular
electric passenger car, said pouch being
fastened on a rod near the motorneer.
At each station the conductor will un
lock the rod and slip the pouch off.
ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
At the annual meeting of the Academy
of Sciences this evening In Throop hall
Vice-President F. S. Daggett presided
In the absence of President Prof. C. F.
Holder, who Is sick. Arrangements were
made for the Issuing of two bulletins Im
mediately. One of these will be a bac
teriological report by Prof. Ernest B.
Hoag, chief of the biological depart
ment. The other will be a list of the
birds of the country by Joseph Grin
ned, Prof. Hoag's assistant.
Secretary Hoag's yearly report
showed many accomplishments which
the academy has made during the past
year. Officers were then elected as fol
lows for the coming year: President,
C. F. Holder; first vice-president, Prof.
E. B. Hoag; second vice-president, De
tOS Arnold; secretary, F. S. Daggett;

Plans for work for the coming year
A large and select audience listened
to a highly interesting lecture upon
"Bacteriology In Relation to Agricul
ture." by Prof. Ernest B. Hoag, in
structor in biology, in the biological
rooms of Throop institute at 3:30 oclock
this afternoon. Prof. Hoag, whose re
searches have amply fitted him to deal
with his topic intelligently, showed how
bacteria are not only harmless but very
useful. In fact no plant or animal
could exist without bacteria. Without
them there would be no decay. The
lecturer emphasized the point that as a
rule bacteria are not disease producers.
They are highly useful to the dairymen
because without them cream would not
■ form and milk would not sour.
Two Incinerations will take place at
Reynolds & Van Nuys' crematory at
Mountain View cemetery next Sunday.
Never before have there been two cases
In one day at this crematory. It was
predicted by some persons that the fact
that Durrant's body was reduced
to ashed here would put Reynolds &
Van Nuys' place under the ban, which
does not seem to be the case.
The death of William H. Raymond,
formerly of this city, occurred last night
at ,t£ oclock at his home in Orange,
where he went a year or two ago from
this city. Mr. Raymond was formerly
station agent of the Santa Fe road on
Los Robles avenue, this city. He had
lived here a number of years at 49 North
Euclid avenue. He leaves a wife, a
daughter, Miss Bertha Raymond, who
yls an accomplished singer, and a son,
Clayton Raymond. The remains will be
cretnated at Mountain View cemetery
north of town Sunday afternoon.
A. D. Hall, secretary of the local So
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, went up to Sierra Madre to
Investigate the charge against Proprie
tor Frederick Merrill of the Sierra Madre
villa. Mr. Ball found that there seemed
to be no cause for action against Mr.
Merrill. The trouble grew out of a com-
M plaint made by a Sierra Madre man to
Dr. Rowland, president of the society.
It was recited that the hotel 'bus horses
were made to haul very big loads upon
empty stomachs, and that one of them
was also lame. Mr. Merrill discharged
the driver of the 'bus.
The monthly social of the First Con
gregational Christian Endeavor society
was given this evening In the Y. M. C.A.
rooms, a large number of young people

opened by prayer by Dr. Janes. A
musical and literary program was ren
dered and refreshments of coffee, etc.,
A. C. Vroman lectured tonight at the
high school, for the benefit of the school
library, upon the "Enchanted Mesa of
New Mexico," which Mr. Vroman vis
ited last summer, in company with Dr.
Kodge of the Smithsonian Institution
and others. The lecture, which was
highly interesting, was illustrated with
steneoptlcon views from photographs
taken by Mr. Vroman at the time. The
mesa Is situated upon a high, isolated
plateau, and until last year had never
been reached by a white man.
Mr. Crank, father of Dr. Crank and J.
F. Crank of this city, died at Pomona
yesterday. The remains will be brought
to Pasadena and cremated at Mountain
View cemetery Sunday morning at 10
O. N. Walker was arrested this morn
ing by Constable Wallls for begging.

tenced to sixty days In the county Jail
by Justice Merrlam.

The fire Is supposed to have been
The Are Is supposed to have been
caused by a drunken man's careless
ness in handling a lamp. The absence of
water In sufficient quantities was woe
fully evident from the start, but the
heroic volunteer firemen performed
valiant service with the chemical engine,
and in the work of demolishing burn
ing buildings and blowing up others, to
prevent the spread of the conflagration,
and Incurred great risk to their lives.
By 2 o'clock the danger was over.
As announced in the telegraphic col
umns of The Herald, the loss will aggre
gate fully $100,000, and falls heavily on
many people In moderate circumstances,
especially as no insurance cam be ob
tained as yet on Bansburg property.
Ten- owners will rebuild at once, and
more will follow soon. The Are has had
one good effect already In a decisive
movement for better protection from
fire, which will doubtless ba Inaugurated
speedily, as Randsburg cannot afford
to run any more such costly risks.

Last month was the banner month for
the Yellow Aster Mining company. The
output for that period was $74,000, $30,000
of which was paid out for expenses. The
company now employs ninety men, and
the dally output of ore averages fifty
tons, a quantity sufficient to keep two
or three of the Garlock mills going all
the time. On Saturday a Foos engine
and hoist were placed In position at one
of the shafts, and if it works success
fully three more will be put In operation
in a very short time, and more men will
be added to the force already working.
Since the completion of the Kramer
and Randsburg railroad, freight rates
have increased quite materially on both
the Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific.
Many of the Rand merchants are kick
ing at the raise, and say that they will
go back to freight teams if a reduction
In rates is not made. From Los An
geles to Randsburg the freight charges
are nearly $24 per ton by railroad, and
many of the merchants claim that by
shipping by rail to Lancaster and thence
to Randsburg by team they can save
$7 per ton.

JOHANNESBURG, Jan. 21.—(Regular
Correspondence.) J. B. Osborne was in
Johannesburg last week en route to Los
Angeles, having Just returned from
Resting Springs, in Inyo county, where
he is interested in twenty-one silver and
lead claims, formerly the property of a
mining company which twenty years
ago comprised the names of many
prominent Angelenos.. Mr. Nadeau, af
ter whom the Nadeau hotel was named,
was one of the freighters on the line to
these mines, and for months received
$100 per ton for freight transported over
that supposedly desert waste.
The Resting Springs mines would be
rich if silver was up to its former stan
dard, but with that "commodity" down
to 57, they are valueless except for the
lead that is in them, and that is not
predominating enough to warrant ship
ment by team to railroads 120 miles dis
tant, though in the good old $1.29 days
a mill and smelter were In operation on
the ground and served to extract the
metal from the ores, and the camp
gave employment to 200 men. It is es
timated that nearly a quarter of a mil
lion had been invested in this camp in
machinery alone and this has been hope
lessly lost through the decline in sil
ver. It is» generally supposed that the
railroad now having its terminus at this
point will eventually run through that
section. In that event if freight rates
be not too high, these mines can be
worked at a small profit for the lead and
gold which the ores contain.

The Rattlesnake mine, a promising
property adjacent to the G. 8., was the
scene a few days ago of a racket which
nearly furnished a case for the coroner.
The mine Is owned by Kelly, Belcher &
Price of Oarlock, and a couple of weeks
ago they leased It to Frank McNulty of
Johannesburg. On Saturday last the
latter party went out to continue the
work, and as he approached the shaft
he was confronted by a six shooter with
a big burly individual behind it who
announced in stentorian tones that he
was "Corduroy" Jones, and that he
owned the property and would protect
It with his life. McNulty retired In good
order but reappeared on the scene again
the following morning armed with a re
volver, but instead of finding one man
with whom to contest the ownership of
the claim he found five men armed with
rifles. He therefore quit and reported
the case to the men from whom he had
leased the claim and they have institut
ed suit against Jones for possession.
From all reports Jones has no legal
right to the mine, he simply Jumped It.

t ßheumatism and Creeping Paralysis Followed, and
Mr. Salsbury Suffered for a Long Time—Relief
Came at Last in the Use of Pink Pills.
From the Times, Erie, Pa.
On a bright September morning a reporter
of the Erie Daily TVsMI drove up to the cozy
residence of Luther Salsbury, about three
miles from East Springfield, Pa., and one
half mile from Sherman Corners. Mr. Sals
bury was at home and graciously received tlie
reporter, led him to a cozy sitting room, and
begged him to be seated. Mr. Salisbury is 64
years of age, with long snowy white beard,
and steady walk. He was born in Conueaut
Township, about nine miles I'roai where he
now resides, and is one of the best known fur.
mers in that section of the country. At the
•geof 21 he moved to Indiana with his parents.
Mr. Salsbury was always a very healthy
man, and nevtr knew what it was to be sick.
After living in Indiana about fifteen years, he,
with his aged mother, moved back to their
former home. About seven years ago Mrs.
Salsbury had the misfortune to fall and break
her hip. Luther, who witnessed the fall from
