Charles Priuz's Good Luck in the
Klondike—A Runaway Acci
[ dent—Social Eevents
I .
PASADENA, Mitrch 12 (Office of The
Herald, 88 East Colorado Street)— The
dead horse which has been creating a
disturbance umong residents on South
Catallna avenue a short distance below
Colorado street was this morning burled
by D. N. Parker, upon whose lot the beast
laid down and died. Cnnulderablc squab
bling took place before the interment was
made. This squabbling was as to the
identity of the person whose funeral It
was. Tho neighbors thought the mar
shal of Pasadena ur the constables were
responsible, but the officers reasoned
that it was not their affnir, because tho
nuisance existed outside the city limits.
The county officials were also visited,
but expressed as little.sympathy for the
Buffering community as for the deceased.
The animal was an estrny, and the iden
tity of the owner is not known.
Friends of Chnrles Prlnz, formerly of
this city, w ill be glad to learn that he has
prospered since going to Klondike. He
and his partner took up a government
claim there, selecting n spot which
seemed to them a proper place for a
townslte. Their selection seems to
have been a lucky one, as surveyors Of
the Rothschilds have looked over the
claim and think they enn use It as a site
for the town which these capitalists will
establish In connection with their pro
jected railway. Of course m€ch of this
Is expectation on the part of the young
men, but there seems considerable
(round for their expectation.
F. K. Roedtger of 435 Lincoln was the
Victim of a runaway accident this
morning. He was driving southward

balance and man and keg rolled over into
the street. Mr. Roediger was knocked
unconscious for a time, und still carries
•everal bruises as a result of the fall.
The horse ran only a short distance Be
fore being caught.

Ohant, a well known miner and pros
pector, who ls the owner of sevral valu
able mines out in the Cahullla district,
has come in from the mines, and he re
ports things In the prospecting line in
that district quite lively, with every
prospect of the coming summer proving

trict for the summer.
J. S. Fry, one of the large producers
of honey In the east part of the county,
' was In the city today, andjie states that
the season has not been a good one out
his way for bees, and the result will be a
short crop of that article. There has not
been moisture enough to start the sage
and other plants and flowers from which
the bees gather their stores, and none of
the bee men are expecting anything but
a light crop at best.
Mr. Fry, discussing the crop pros
pects, says that the shower of last
Thursday brought his section about half
an Inch of rain, which will be of great
benefit to the growing grain, but the
ranchers are In need of more rain than
came at that time if the crops are to be
saved eventually.

A New Park
RIVERSIDE, March 12.—When this
city bought a quarry lot on the nurth
side of the city two years ago one of the
conditions of the sale was the donation
to the city by S. C. Evans of 70 acres of
land lying along the river bottom adja
cent to the quarry for park purposes.
| Since the sale nothing has been done to
Improve this park tract until last even
ing, when there was a mas* meeting held
of delegates from the different churches
and societies in the city for the purpose
of arranging some plan for the improve
ment and planting of trees on the tract.
The meeting, which was called original
-Ily by the local G. A. R post, was enthu
siastic, and from the steps taken It is al
most certain that those 7 Oacres will soon
present a very different look from what
they do now. It was decided to lay out
the tract, and to appoint an arbor day.
when all Interested can come forward
and aid in the work of setting out trees
and shrubbery. The tract of land is
located admirably for park purposes, and
can In a very few years be made one of
the finest picnic grounds in this part of
the state.
A Reckless Scorcher
RIVERSIDE, March 12.—A. W. Glr
rard, a cycle scorcher, came very near
losing his life late last evening while en
gaged in the dangerous work of scorch
ing cm one of the public streets of the
city. Girrurd and wife were coming
down town, and passing a neighbor who
was driving along in a buggy Girrard
bantered the latter to a race, and at once
started off down the street at a rapid
rate of speed. At the corner of Eighth
and Orange street's the reckless rider
collided with a buggy, which was being
driven across the street, and the result
was to upset the buggy and throw Gir
rard violently to the ground. Girrard
was badly cut over the right eye, and
otherwise bruised up. The two men in
the buggy escaped unhurt, but their
team ran away, and the buggy was

POMONA, March 12.—The San Antonio
Light and Power company of Pomona
has a force of men at work putting a line
along Towne avenue for a distance of
about two miles, 2000 feet of which will
be laid underground. Wooden conduits
will be used in this work as an experi
ment. The line will be used to transmit
power for pumping water for irrigation
purposes from wells located In the Palo
mares and Klngsley tracts. Power will
also be furnished the Del Monte Irriga
tion company for two pumps In wells lo
cated near Claremont. San Bernardino
parties are also negotiating with the
company for power delivered west of San
Bernardino for the same purpose.
Owing to the scarcity of water in the
mountain streams wells will be more
generally resorted to for irrigation than
at any previous time.
Convicted of Forgery
SAN BERNARDINO, March 12.—After
being out four hours the jury |n the case
of Melton Baca brought in a verdict of
forgery, and the prisoner was remanded
to the sheriff to be brought up for sen
tence Monday. This was the second
trial of the case, the jury disagreeing in
the first. A desperate attempt was
made by Riverside politicians to save
the accused, as he was a member of the
Republican county central committee of
that county and a great worker among
the Spanish-speaking voters. "■The
forged check was for a small sum passed
during the celebration of July 3, at a
restaurant, and was too clumsy a job
to merit the name of forgery. The main
defense was an alibi for the accused.
Was He Inside?
There was an alarm of fire at 2:40 this
morning that was occasioned by the
burning of a vacant house on I street,
between First and Second, owned by
John Wallace, but unoccupied except by
a man who had been sleeping in it of late.
The house was a mass of flames before
assistance arrived, and whether the man
was burned in the building or escaped
could not be ascertained, as he has not
been seen! since.

It Shows the Record of Fatality
of Three Dread Diseases.
In an article In a September Issue of
the Illustrated Amorlcan, Prof. Fletcher
W. Hewes publishes a dial, Illustrating
the ratio of deaths in the United States
from the most prevalent diseases. This
Is a reproduction of Prof. Hewes' dial.
In his article Prof, Hewes says:
"This dial should servo as a guide to
emphasize the need of specially guard
ing against exposures to at least three
classes of diseases. Few persons realize
how very large are the proportion Of
deaths from these three classes of dis
orders. Figures alone do not tell the
story. The wide spaces on the dial be
tween the lower and uppper indicators
should make one realize the fatality of
those diseases as never before, and be
more careful."
It will be noted on the dial that where
diphtheria and typhoid fever each kill
but 27,000 people, consumption alone
kills 102,000 people. Next to consump
tion In the dread race of death stands
pneumonia, with a record of 76,000.
Right at its heels Is the record of 74,000
for diarrheal diseases.
There is more than one lesson to be
learned from these figures and from this
dial. And there are other facts to be
taken into consideration with them.
For instance, the city of Uuffalo, N. V.,
is said to have the smallest death rate of
any city In the world —but twelve in
every one thousand. In other large
cities the death rate runs from twenty to
thirty-five in each thousand.
It Is significant In this connection that
Buffalo, N. V., Is the headquarters of
The World's Dispensary Medical Asso
ciation, dispensers of the famous family
medicines of Dr. R. V. Pierce. These
family medicines are the product of the
life-work of Dr. Pierce, who is probably
the most widely known physician In
America. Dr. Pierce has been In active
practice In Buffalo for over thirty years.
He is chief consulting physician to the
Invalids' Hotel and Medical Institute,
probably the best known medical insti
tution in the United States.
Among the family medicines that owe
their origin to Dr. Pierce, one that has
attained world -wide fame is known
as Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discov
ery. It Is a preventive and cure for the
three classes of diseases that are shown
by Prof. Hewes' dial to cause the death
of more human beings annually than
the other serious ailments taken to
gether. It ls an unfailing cure for weak
lungs, spitting of blood, obstinate, lin
gering coughs, bronchitis, throat disease
and Kindred affections which if neglect
ed or badly treated, lead up to con
sumption. It purifies the blood and
drives out disease germs. It keeps the
lungs renewed by constantly supplying
them with rich, red, arterial blood of
the best quality. It clears the lungs
and enables the blood to receive its nor
mal amount of life-giving oxygen. It
steadies and strengthens the nerves. It
builds up the whole body and makes
solid, firm, healthy flesh. It does not
buTTd the flabby, unhealthy flesh of cor
pulency and It does not raise the weight
above the normal figure. —-
If every person who suffers from bron
chial or throat troubles or is threatened
with consumption would resort to this
remedy, the number of deaths credited
to consumption on Prof. Hewes' dial
would be enormously reduced.
This great remedy, by Us action
through the blood upon the lungs,
Is also the best preventive arid protec
tion against pneumonia. It will not cure
pneumonia after it has gained a foot
hold, for the simple reason that It is an
acute disease, and once started, must
run its course. But If people who have
weak lungs, narrow chests and a hered
itary tendency to lung troubles would
build themselves up by taking Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery, the
chances of an attack of pneumonia
would be reduced to a minimum. The
"Golden Medical Discovery" builds up
and strengthens not only the lungs but
the whole body, and gives to the Weak
constitution greatly added powers of
Nearly all diarrheal diseases are due
to neglected disorders of the digestion.
When the stomach is right and performs
Its proper functions, and the large in
testines are right and perform their
proper functions, there ls little danger
of diarrheal disease. The first work
of Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discov
ery is to correct all disorders of the di
gestion. It gives zest and snap to the
appetite. It makes grown people as
hungry as when they were boys and
girls. It facilitates the flow of digestive
juices. It assists the blood to take up
the proper elements of the food that go
to build new and healthy tissues
throughout the body. In a word, it
sees to it that the whole process of di
gestion is properly performed, and un
der these circumstances, there ls little
if any danger of an attack from any
diarrheal disease.
Thus the people of this country have
at their command a simple, harmless,
but effective remedy that may be pro
cured from any high class medicine
dealer, that is a thoroughly reliable pro
tection against the three classes of dis
eases that cause the largest proportion
of the annual death rate. The fact that
the city of Buffalo, N. V., where this
marvelous medicine is made and sold
has a death rate of but twelve in a thou
sand, whereas other large cities average
from twenty to thirty-five in a thou
sand. Is most significant.
The merits of Dr. Pieroe's Golden
Medical Discovery are net based upon
mere assertions. Thousands all over
the country who were in imminent dan
ger of death from the dread diseases
that take precedence In Prof. Hewes'
dial, have testified to their speedy and
permanent recovery under tha use of
this great medicine. These testimonials
are open to Investigation by any person
■ho wiaaaa to ut* them.
The work of this masterful "Discov
ery" begins at the very corner-stone of
life In the stomach and nutritive organ
ism. It gives appetite, nourishment,
rich blood, healthy solid flesh. A cough
ls only a symptom; there are other
things that make the cough; they must
be got rid of first, the cough may be the
last thing to go away. Dr. Pierces
marvelous "Discovery" Isn't a lung spe
cific; but it does more than any such
specific can ever do. It sweeps out of
the blood all the foul disease-germs that
lodge In the lungs and originate con
sumption; it heals and builds up the
delicate tissues and imbues the entire
system with strength and active energy.
When Dr. Price says a case is cur
able, he says it in the knowledge that
those words have been New Life to a
host, doomed by fear and friends and
Ignorance and physicians to a consump
tive's grave.
Does Dr. Pierce claim to cure con
That question Isn't worth arguing.
Look at the record. Take a case In
point. Here is a man with a hacking
cough, a hectic flush, night sweats, great
emaciation or wasting of flesh, spitting
of blood, shortness of breath and all the
other symptoms. After every remedy
and every local physician has failed,
he, as a last resort, takes "Golden Medi
cal Discovery" and the cough vanishes,
the cheek gets back its natural color,
sleep becomes sound and refreshing, the
spitting of blood stops, llesh and mus
cles become Arm, weight Increases, and
life goes along in quiet and comfort to
the full limit of the three score years
and ten.
But may be it wasn't consumption
after all? May be It wasn't. You know-
It was something that was attacking
the very citadel of life, and It was
something that was cured by the use of
Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery.
And Dr. Pierce is curing such "some
things" right along with a record of
over a quarter of a million cases, and
not more than three per cent of failures.
It is hard to draw the line where con
sumption begins, but the important
thing to remember ls that all these
wasting, debilitating diseases caused by
mal-nutrition almost invariably lead on
to consumption, and this class of ob
scure and obstinate diseases are what
this great "Discovery" cures.
One fact, at least, Is well established.
That the "Golden Medical Discovery"
does cure weak lungs, bleeding from
lungs, obstinate, lingering coughs,
laryngitis, bronchitis, throat disease,
and kindred affections of the air pas
sages, which, if neglected or badly
treated, lead up to consumption, can no
longer be doubted in view of the many
thousands of well established cures of
such cases reported by the most trust
worthy citizens. Many of these cases
have been pronounced consumption—
and incurable —by the best local phy
sicians before the sufferers commenced
the use of Dr. Pierces Golden Medical
Whether the doctors have erred in
their judgment In these numerous cases
or not is not for us to decide.
Suppose we put some of these so
called "incurables" in the witness box.
Let us call Mr. Harrison Smith, of Gap
creek, Wayne county, Ky., whose cure
is a conspicuous object lesson to all suf
ferrers from lung troubles. "In the
spring of 1890," writes Mr. Smith, "I
took a severe cold which settled on my
lungs and chest, and I suffered intensely.
I tried several of our best physicians
here, and they gave up all hope of my
recovery; they said that I had consump
tion and could live but a few days or
weeks. Mr. James Lorton, a neighbor,
came to me and told me to write to Dr.
Pierce —that he could cure me. I did so,
and he wrote me what kind of medicine
to get. I took five bottles of Dr. Pierces
Golden Medical Discovesy and now I
am sound and well. I feel better than
I have in ten years. I gladly recom
mend the 'Golden Medical Discovery'
for I know It saved my life."
Still another witness writes: "I had
a bad cough and got so low with it that
I could not sit up." Thus writes Mrs.
Mittie Gray, of New London, Union
county, Ark. She continues, "Our fam
ily physician told my husband that I
had consumption. I had pains through
my chest and spit up blood. I took your
'Golden Medical Discovery' and it cured
me. It saved my life. I don't think
anyone would die of consumption who
would take Dr. Pierces Golden Medical
Mr. C. J. McNaney, of Stillwater,
Washington county, Minn., writes: "In
the spring of 1884, I was taken ill with
' consumption, and after trying every
thing I could hear of and doctoring all
summer, my physician said I had con
sumption, and that my left lung was
nearly gone and that I could live but a
short time. About twelve bottles of Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery
brought me out all right, and I cured
myself of two more attacks of the same
trouble. lam satisfied that the 'Golden
Medical Discovery' will cure consump
tion If taken in, time. I consider It the
best medicine in the world for the dis
eases for which It is'recommended."
"Last summer I was taken with diar
rhea of the very worst kind," writes
Mrs. Kate H. Summerson, of Empo
rium, Cameron county, Pa. "I doctored
a great deal, and for a time was better,
but the trouble soon came on again
worse than ever, and It went so long it
became chronic. I doctored again and
got worse all the time. I had no appe
tite, and was so run down I felt badly
all over.
"A lady friend told me to try Dr.
Pierces medicines. I took four bottles
of 'Golden Medical Discovery' and
three vials of 'Pleasant Pellets.' Am
entirely cured. I never felt better, and
I owe |t all to Dr. Pierces medicines."
All high class medicine dealers sell Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery.

Bialto Irrigation District Is Again in
the Toils
ing been knocked out on the first round,
the people have sought state aid In their
contest with bondholders of thff Rialto
Irrigation district. The ruling of the
demurrer In the case of Butterfleld vs.
Weston et al., by which the intervenors,
the bondholders, won a decided victory,
has caused the plaintiff, who ls simply
a representative for the settlers, to take
a new tack and file a new suit in which
the case is between the people of the
state of California, ex-Rel. M. C. But
terfleld vs. the Rialto Irrigation district,
a corporation, W. A. Norton, E. C.
Dyer, E. G. Pickett, C. E. Tibbott and
Devillo Robinson, directors; Jamea E.
Mack, secretary; J. E. Cox, assessor;
Eugene Weston, collector; and Truman
Reeves, treasurer. The plaintiff de
mands judgment against the defendants,
that the district be declared to have no
title, rights, interest, authority, warrant
or franchise, nor ever had any to act as a
corporation, and the other defendants
have no title, franchise, authority or
right to exercise the functions of the
respective offices they claim to exercise.
This complaint is signed by W. F. Fitz
gerald, attorney-general of the state of
California, and by Otis, Gregg & Hall,
attorneys for tha settlers. It is ac
companied by a document from the at
torney general entitled, "Leave to Sue
in the Name of the People." A stubborn
fight ls before them.

The Receiving Ship Vermont Crowded
With Ken Anxious to Enlist
NEW YORK, Feb.—There was a busy
scene on board the receiving ship Vermont
at the navy yard today. Word had gone
out that recruits were wanted and a great
crowd hurried to the Cob dock, at which
the Vermont is lying.
Most of the men were young, and many
of them were mere boys. All were eager
to enlist, and it was evident that they had
been roused to enthtr ' " by the prospect
ive trouble with F' " <riy all of the
men were of an . lass, and a
number of them haC Lly come from
good homos,
i The officers on board the Vermont denied
that the activity had anything to do with
the war scare. They said that the recruits
wanted were twenty landsmen, twenty;
coal passers, six machinists of the sec
ond class, Aye shipwrights and forty ap
prentices of the third class. In addition
150 would soon be needed to man tho Dol
There were only about forty trained sea
men on board the Vermont today, as sev
enty were recently drafted to the Monitor
and Puritan. This left plenty of vacancies
on the Vermont.
A curious feature of the recruiting was
that every man accepted had to be an
American citizen. Usually foreigners who
have taken first papers are accepted, but
only citizens were taken today.
The polar currents contain lesa salt than)
those from the equator.
