It might as well be understood that Henry James,

relationship with the turgid, involved style of Hank Jim.
The plan for a new park in the block bounded by
First, Court, Hill and Olive streets is a most sensible
scheme. The present condition of this region Is a great
detriment to the neighborhood and it depreciates prop

of it and the whole vicinity will be vastly benefited.
"Do it now."
A BAS THE PISTOL-TOTER
It is time for the plßtol toter to go. He has no place
in a decent, civilized community. He is an excrescence,
a nuisance, a danger. He breaks the law of man in
carrying a weapon and the laws of God In using it.
He should be suppressed, here and now.
There may have been Rome right, Justice and reason
in carrying a revolver In the early days of Los Angeles —
though even that is doubtful. Perhaps the crudity of
the early civilization, the lack of law enforcement, prop
erty protection and one's own safety lent an excuse for
the possession of a pistol a quarter of a century ago.
That has no bearing on present facts. The thing is
that no one save on officer of the law now has either
right or Justification for going armed. There is no need
for pistol toting in this refined, highly lawful and decent
community. The man who does carry one defies the
laws of the city and state and should be punished
therefor. .;'•/.! •
Last week furnished a bloody chapter of crime for
citizens to ponder over. Homicide, suicide, assault,
attempted murder, succeeded one another almost daily —
in fact, some days chronicled more than one such
affray. In nearly every case the pistol was the effective
weapon and the gun-user was the aggressor. The result
is self evident; had the pistol been eliminated the
crimes doubtless would not have been committed. The
moral is equally plain— suppress the man who carries
the "gun" and the crimes will tak« care of themselves.
And these breakers of civil and moral law can be
suppressed. It will take some good police work, but It
can be done. Certainly it Is worth trying. The bloody
calendar leaf of last week Is a red signal of warning
that should be heeded. Btop the toting of pistols and
prevent another such disgraceful page in the city's

STOP THE CHINESE CONSPIRACY I
More than 16,000 Chinese la the United States ar«
armed and are drilling to perfect themnelrM In military
Uctlcs. They h&T« formed themselves Into an army;
hare tried— -and In «om« cases with »ucce»§— to Induce
Americana to assume their - leadership. They have
about perfected plans for a secret mobilization In the
well-nigh Inaccessible mountain recesses of California
and, Nevada. Their avowed object Is to upset the pres
ent government of China, a friendly power, depose its
rulers and violate and break down th* United States
These astounding facts were brought out In a way
precluding doubt or controversy In The Herald yester
day. They show a most surprising state of affairs.
They Indicate that the laws of the United States are
being violated with Impunity.
These conditions would seem to call for prompt and
decisive action on the part of both the United States
and the state authorities. The laws of the former are
extremely plain in the matter. Not even In times of war
between other countries do we allow men of either or
even sympathizers, to prepare on American soil to as
sist their native or adopted land. We prosecated the
Cuban filibusters; we would not think of permitting
Russians or Japanese now to carry on a propaganda
here, let alone to drill and equip armies. The Chinese
are doing more than this every day.
Ample evidence Is furnished of these facts In the
columns of The Herald. Names, places, photographs
and all necessary data are given. It is the duty of the
authorities to get busy, without delay, to stop these out
rages and to bring to Justice these knowing violators of
the laws of the country and of the state.
The fair Missouri girl who came here, "all the way
from Pike," to wed knew what she was about. She
expects her honeymoon to be a foretaste of heaven,
and therefore wants to spend it in heaven's prototype.
THE VALUE OF THE MITE
One of the secrets — doubtless the cardinal one — of
the great financial success of John D. Rockefeller is his
knowledge of the accumulative value of the infinitesimal.
He knows the worth of the mite and its power to grow
into a stupendous aggregate.
He early saw that the waste in the handling and re
fining of petroleum was a vast fortune in itself. Grad
ually he secured control not only of the refining, but of
all the manufacturing of the by-products, and he saved
enough on each one to add millions to his Income. Now
the final minimum of refuse from the crude petroleum
contains absolutely nothing of which human intelligence
can create a value. The very bungs in the barrels where
in oil is shipped are so constructed and of such cheap
material that they prevent the waste of a drop of oil,
though at the lowest possible cost.
Andrew Carnegie has declared that the fraction of
a cent per hundred weight in the price of coal or iron
in a steel mill may represent the difference between
profit and bankruptcy. It is a truism in every manufac
tory that the welfare of the business depends upon skill
in checking or preventing minute wastes.
Rockefeller and Carnegie are the world's most suc
cessful money makers. They have accumulated their
riches through their ability to utilize the mites, which
the vast majority waste.
It is the sixty minutes which make the hour, and if
only five of them are wasted one-twelfth of the hour is
gone. It is the 100 cents that make up the dollar, and
If only five are thrown away the dollar is one-twentieth
short. Time and money are saved by all who do save
In small quantities. The man who puts by that-one
twentieth of the dollar soon has the start for a fortune.
The man who improves that one-twelfth of an hour has
riches of time to his credit
Both Rockefeller and Carnegie started life as poor
men. They realized the value of the mite and its ac
cumulative power. Neither idled; neither wasted.
That is all there is to it. Take advantage of the odd
minutes, the odd cents; watch for the by-products and
do not let either time or money go to waste.
This is the day of "big" things. Men count by dollars
and by hours. But each hour has sixty minutes; with
one gone it is incomplete. Each dollar has 100 cents
and it Is no dollar without every one of them. Never
mind the "big" things; watch the cents and the min
utes and the rest will take care of itself.
If the example of St. Louis in municipal street light
ing be trustworthy, Los Angeles would save money by
following it. St. Louis paid a monopoly 13 cents a
kilowatt hour for light that It now makes for 2.06 cents.
And it now has better light, at that.
A REVOLUTION IN AGRICULTURE?
When an attache of the agricultural department ex
pressed the belief two years ago that grain crops might
easily be doubled In their yield the farmers laughed
at him. When he demonstrated his theory later by
growing two bushels of corn in lowa where the farmers
had grown only one bushel before the amusement of
the farmers was turned to amazement. Now the whole
middle west is stirred by astonishing results of what is
called the "Campbell system of soil culture."
No adequate description of this wonderful system of
agriculture has yet come under the observation of The
Herald. It seems so marvelous, notwithstanding the
results reported, that unquestionable evidence in sup
port of the claims will be necessary to carry convic
tion. A detailed description of the method adopted In
the Campbell system, together with facts and figures
bearing on practical results of its application, is prom
ised at an early dajv It will be time enough to form
a mature opinion when all the testimony has been sub
An investigator of recognized repute says of the
new system: "I saw the results of the work in eastern
Colorado and western Kansas. The farmers using the
system are raising from thirty to forty bushels of
wheat to the acre, while those using the irrigation syg.
tern are glad to get twelve to fifteen bushels."
He expresses the fullest confidence that the system
"will solve the problem of the semi-arid regions of the
west and will make them the garden spots of America."
It seems that "the system can be put into use by any
intelligent farmer; there is nothing difficult or rnysterl
mm about It" Hence the sanguine forecast that "it
raises farming from an uncertain hand-to-mouth exist
ence to an investment as solid as a government bond
In these days of marvelous discoveries it Is hardly
safe to laugh at the promise of any proposition, no
matter how far astray it may be from the line of rec
ognized knowledge. Agriculture on the broader lines,
such as grain farming, has made little progress in com
parison with scientific advancement in other fields.
Farming equipment has been revolutionized In the last
half century, but no substantial gain has been made in
the product of such standard crops as corn and wheat.
If this Campbell system of soil treatment justifies
only in part the claims made for it, which seem to be
well authenticated, It should be adaptable to conditions
in Southern California. Further developments concern
ing it will be awaited, therefore, -with keea interest, . ..,

PRESIDENT J. F. MILLSPAUGH
NORMAL GRADUATES HEAR
President Mlllspaugh Dwells Upon
the Life of Christ as »n Insplr.
atlon of Youth
President J. F. Mlllspaugh of the
state normal school delivered the bac
calaureate address to its graduating
class of sixty-seven members yesterday
morning at the First Congregational
No unusual features marked the oc
casion, but the sermon carried with it
a deep significance.
President Mlllspaugh took as his text
the sixteenth chapter and twenty-fifth
verse of Matthew: "For whosoever will
cave his life shall lose it, and whoso
ever shall lose his life for my sake shall
find it." He said in part:
"Of the real meaning of the great
teacher's words when he exhorted his
hearers to lose life that they might
attain it we need not remain in doubt
or uncertainty. Not only was he the
teacher of the higher life, but he was
also Its interpreter and example.
"Nowhere In word or in action is
there indication that he despised the
gift of life; never did he mistreat It or
seek to throw It away. He used it.
It was to him an instrument of service.
"He came 'nof to be ministered to,
but to minister.' Whether employing
his intellectual and spiritual insight to
Interpret truth to men or in the sweat
of his brow at the carpenter's bench,
contributing to social comfort and thus
forever putting the seal of dignity upon
honest toil, or healing the sick and
sympathizing with sorrow, or, finally,
giving up life itself for the race—al
ways, everywhere, the Master's life was
a life of service.
"Thus did he Interpret and exemplify
his own teachings, thus did he lose his
life, thus did he find it.
"It is in service then that true life
Is to be realized. This is the philosophy
of selfhood. Here we have" the touch
stone which determined the value of
the present life— its capacity for ser
vice. 'The seeker for his own life shall
lose it.' But he who daily spends his
life in service, who loses it in helpful
effort, who invests it for Christ and
humanity, he makes it the ladder by
which he may rise to the ideal. 'The
loser of his life shall find it.' ■' > ' t . "
"To you, my young friends' of th*
graduating class, this declaration of
the great teacher comes with especial
persuasiveness. You are today stand-
Ing on the threshold of a career which
Is preeminently one of service, a career
In which multitudes of devoted men
and women have realized the grandeur
and glory of noblest selfhood. . . ,/- y
"That you are animated in some good
degre by a sense of the. dignity of its
transforming power I have every rea
son to believe. That you may carry
away from the Institution which you
are soon to leave — from its laboratories,
its library, its class rooms— something
more than the knowledge you have ac
quired, something more than the skill
you have attained, something more even
than the enthusiasm for investigation
and study, which many of you have
gained ; that, more than all ' else and
better than .all these, you may 'bear
away with you a lofty and unselfish
i purpose to use all that you have gained
In loyal service for Christ and human
ity, and thus may bring to fruition the
noblest elements of your nature, this

FOR BRIEF VISIT
LOCAL MILLIONAIRE ON HIS
GROOM IS RECENT DIVORCEE*"
Denies Published Reports of His Tes
timony Relating to Amount of
His Wealth, Given at
Trial In Texas
, Nathan W. Btowell, the Los Angeles
millionaire, who, following a decree of
divorce from Flora Rives Kin well, mar
ried Miss Evelyn Wilkinson of Chicago
in that city last Tuesday, Is 'at the
Van Nuys with his 22-year-old Wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Stowell arrived In Los
Angeles late Saturday night over the
Southern Pacific, and following a week
or ten days here, while Mr. Stowell is
occupied with business affairs', the
couple will continue their journey to
the north, with Portland and the ex
position as their goal.
The divorce which gave separation
to Stowell and his first wife was grant
ed In the Texas courts last April. The
published report that at. that time, and
only a month after selling the Stowell
block on Spring street for $400,000, he
swore the valuation of the community
property to be $12,000 met with an em
phatic refutation on Stowell's part last
"In the first place the settlement of
such a question could not be taken up
by the Texas courts, but must be left
to those of the state of California,"
he said. "And, agatn, as some valua
tion has to be placed upon the prop
erty, I swore that the community in
terest amounted to more than $12,000.
How much more is something that con
cerns only the parties interested.'
"The settlement with my wife was
something like $150,000. Anything
farther than this I do not care to dis
cuss. The statements which have been
made in the newspapers have been so
utterly false, so entirely lacking -in
truth, that they will not deceive any
one 'who knows either Mrs. Flora
Rives Stowell or myself."
"Are you going 1 to housekeeping here,
Mr. Stowell, following youri honey
moon?" he was asked.
"Oh, no," he replied, "you know I' am
now living in El Paso."
