NOTES OF INTEREST FROM LONG BEACH Special to Tlir Herald. LONG BEACH, Feb. I.— Albert de Ruiz, an expert engineer, has accepted a position in the office of City En- j glneer Hervey Shaw and will take i charge of the Vronman work. Fred A.

Young, a German, said to he a Los Angeles tailor, was found lying on the outer wharf last night in an un conscious condition resulting from the use of cocaine.

Patrolmen McMillan and McCord have been transferred to day duty and Patrolmen Austin and Harovor will maintain the peace at night.

City Engineer Shaw has practically solved the problem of providing for the draining of that part of the city lying north of Anaheim road. The mat ter has been a vexatious one. Along California avenue and the Salt Lake railroad track there ls a low place, which will necessitate the building of a storm drain. Otherwise the natural slope of the land will permit of the grading of the streets so aB to carry off the water. The hlprhest point west of the hill lies between American and Atlantic avenues and It ls through this that the engineer proposes to carry a tile drain from California avenue.

I.— "To the Memory of Beauty and Spot," an in scription on the fourth side of a neat granite monument in the city cemetery, the other three sides of which bear the names of the wife, daughter and twin babies of Thomas Wilson, a former wealthy merchant of Greeley, was noticed recently by a curious person, who Insisted upon finding out who "Beauty and Spot" were. He learned not only that they were little Mexican dogs that had been pets In the Wilson family, but that they were burled In the plot beside the family. When this fact became generally known there was protest from many owners of lots, who object to having dogs burled where their relatives are lnterred and where they, themselves, expect to be burled. Since the right of a person to bury a dog in tin- ceme tery Is not defined, It probably will be necessary for those who are deter mined to nave the dogs removed to take the cast to court. SHORTENS $5 AND $10 NOTES Treasury Official Believes a Bank Cashier Makes Six Bills Out of Five WASHINGTON. Feb. I.— The most expert case of note shortening that has ever come to the notice of the treasury department officials is now puzzling the United States treasurer. Great quantities of $f> and $10 notes, an Inch or so short of the regulation size, have been coming into the treas ury department for the last six weeks. The treasury officials, in redeeming them, deduct an amount relatively as large as the part of the note that is missing. "I am convinced," said an offL'al in the redemption division of the treasury department, "that the person who is working the game now has access to large amounts of mnn*y. I suspect the cashier of a bank or trust company or rome such institution where big simis are handled. I hold this opinion because of the excellence of the 'shortening,' and the perfect manner in which the mutilated notes are made short. "Briefly, the manner nf 'shortening' is as follows: Five notes are secured and are carefully cut Into varying leiißths nnci are pasted together so as to form six notes, all being shorter than the regulation size." SUPPORTS WIFE AND 15 FRANKLIN. Ky., Feb. I.— On wages of 60 cents a day, Hob Jennett of Franklin county is supporting a wife and fifteen children. Sheriff Bryan, who became acquaint ed with the case in the course of his official duties, said today in talking ot" it; "Jonnett Is a common laborer, with no means of support but the work of his hands, and being entirely unedu cated, is never able to earn more than 60 cents por day. "Besides an even dozen of children, born one at a time, he is the father of triplets, tWO girls and a boy. They are blight-eyed, rosy-cheeked babies, and It is worth a day's travel to sec them."

"Lowder, Lowder," replied the appli cant, surprise almost getting the best of him. "Hiram Lowder of Chula, Mo., and We want a marriage license." "Oh!" gasped Mr Gossett, "I see." and he wrote the name and the other necessary details and turned to tho young woman. "And what Is your name?" he asked her. "Lowder," replied the young woman with a smile, and then as Mr. Gossetl showed signs of collapse, she added, "Beasie F. Lnwder of Chula, Mo., and my age Is 20." Mr. Gossett'S suspicions were aroused.
