HUNTINGTON IS EXPENDING OVER A MILLION DOLLARS AROUND REDONDO IN SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS. s Go down to Redondo and see for yourself. At Jefferson street and Grand avenue see the immense stacks of heavy steel rails for the double-tracking of the present two electric lines of the Los Angeles & Redondo Railway company. The rails are arriving daily. Dirt is now flying. Better buy now. Then there's the Los Angeles-Pacific Railway company's electric line to Redondo, the broad-gauging of which will soon occur. And in addition to the above three electric lines now running to Redondo is the great Santa Fe steam railroad. With four lines of transportation it would seem as if same would be sufficient, but surveyors are in the field laying out the shortest line of all to connect Los Angeles with its choicest seashore suburb — Redondo. Mr. Huntington is now building at Redondo the largest electric power house on the Pacific coast, to cost $1,250,000, as fast as men and money can do it. Go down and look at the mammoth cement smokestack. , . . A suburban electric railroad is now nearing completion at Redondo. The grand three-story business block of Mr. W. M. Garland at Redondo is just finished. Follow successful men like Mr. Huntington and Mr. Garland— they know that Redondo is substantial and a safe place to invest in. Buy anywhere around Redondo and you are sure to make large profits. Three commercial wharves. A safe harbor by twenty years' practical test. Redondo is permanent and has just begun to grow. Then again, referring to successful men, we notice that the following men have bought to the north of Redondo: v'X'-' : "- ;■ Mr. Edwin Chambers, the far-siehted general freight agent of the Santa Fe: Mr. George H. Peck, the successful banker of San Pedro; Mr. John J. Byrne, the capable general passenger agent of the Santa Fe, and Dan Murphy, the millionaire oil operator of Los Angeles.

SCHOOL BOND ELECTION GIVES NEGATIVE RESULT LONG BEACH, May 25.— 1n an elec tion practically unaccompanied by In terest or enthusiasm tho proposed $90, 0 issue of school bonds was defeate I here today by a vote of 151 to 140. Not long ago another election was held to determine whether the people should issue $300,000 of bonds, and that meas ure also went down to defeat. One of tho reasons to which today's defeat is attributed is the fact that H. L. Enloe is connected with the school board. This caused many voters who would otherwise have cast their ballots in the affirmative to go against their own wishes and judgment and help de feat the issue. The judges of today's election were Robert Van Vleck and Jacob I. Hill and the votes were polled at the Pine Street school house.

The board took the charges under ad- ROB DEALER OF SACK OF GOLD Two Men Enter Shoe Store and Snatch Money Bag While Merchant Is Attempting to Make Change A daring and successful robbery was perpetrated at midnight last night when two men robbed Joseph Ladow, a clothing and shoe merchant with a place of business at 422 East Fifth street, of a sack of money containing more than $200 and escaped with the coin before the alarm could be given. Mr. Ladow was in the act of clos ing his store for the night when two men, both Americans and fairly well dressed, entered the place and one of them asked for a pair o; shoes. He Btated that he was a workingman and wanted a pair of shoes that would stand the wear and tear of heavy work. He was shown a pair of shoes by Ladow and stated that they were sat isfactory. He declined to try them on, but stated that if they did not fit he would return them arid get another pair. This was satisfactory and the man then laid a $20 gold piece on the counter in payment for the shoes. Ladow took from his inside coat pocket a canvas sack containing his money, amounting all told, he states, to more than $200 end was about to open It to secure the change for the gold piece when both men seized it and jerking It away from him, ran out of the back door of the store and jumping over the rear fence into an alleyway, escaped. Ladow was paralyzed with surprise and contsernation and did not give the alarm for several minutes. He fur nished the police with a fairly good de scription of the two men and Detec tive Sergeant Kolley, In charge of the night office, at once assigned t#vo men to the case.

LONDON, May 25.— There are few things easier than to go to one of the really swagger society functions in London without an invi tation. At hospitalities at royal houses cards are hardly ever demanded and the guests enter, remove their wraps and mingle with the company, no one even dreaming of questioning their identity. At the great party at Marl borough house given by the prince and princess of Wales in honor of th« premiers, there were present two American women who have done this kind of thing before in London and yet have not been found out— by at least the people whose houses they enter. Perfect self-possession and assurancts together with tasteful dressing, which is never conspicuous, carry them along. In going to Marlborough house they were certainly treading on dangerois ground, inasmuch as the princess of Wales ls a particularly sharp woman, and very keen at spotting Americans to .whom she is by no means partial. They knew this, but "chanced it," pasa- Ing themselves off as Canadians, of whom th"re were a great many present. These two friends say they mean to go to every big party of the season, with or without invitations. But one fine night there will be a reckoning and a cab suddenly called for. For this ls precisely what happened to two other Americans who carried on a similar game a year or so ago. MRS. LESLIE VISITS BARONESS IN PARIS Special Cablo to The Herald. PARIS, May 25.— Mrs. Frank Leslie has just left for Madrid after paying a ten days' visit to the Baroness Sal vador.

Mrs. Leslie is in mourning for the count and went out very little while in Paris, but she was seen one afternoon taking tea in a quiet, fashionable res taurant with the Baroness Salvador, Marquis Sagnac. Count and Viscount de Sere and three Chicago women, whose unconventlonality caused con siderable surprise to the titled for eigners. Tho Marquis Sagnac confessed later to an American friend that he thought it most astonishing that these fair transatlantiques should pluck flowers from the table decorations and make boutonnieres for the men. He ended his mild criticism with the French man's usual question: "Is that cus tomary in your country?" TELEPHONE OPERATOR PERISHES IN FIRE By Associated Press. SOMERSET, Ky., May 25.— The Mer cer hotel at Burnsldes was destroyed by fire early today and Miss Bertha Tooms, a telephono operator, was burned to death.

TELLS PARIS HOW TO KNOW AN AMERICAN He Wears Less Hair on His Face anr* Doesn't Always Carry a Guide Book, So Look for the Signs Special Cable to The Herald. PARIS, May 18.— A writer in the Eclair, remarking on the American in vasion of Paris, tells how he knows Americans from English visitors. "The American," he says, "has less stiffness of manner, less mustache and beard, even often goes without any mustache or beard at all. He is not so much in tho habit of carrying guide books and he eschews the Cook tickets with which his British cousin loves to go to the races or see the sights of Paris cheaply* "American women have not such high shoulders as Englishwomen, nor have they such long teeth. The British maid or matron shows her upper teeth or her lower lip. The American women wear less show colors on their costumes, and few of them wear dust coats to hide hideous- frocks. "Parisian women complain that their American sisters are great flirts; that they pursue the conquest of a salon or a title with tho same audacity as that of American men bent upon winning control of a great trust. Still they de serve their place :.y their beauty, some times by the calmness of their confi dence in others. Sometimes they save men from squandering their substance upon charmers less desirable than they Paris is full to overflowing, as is shown by the fact that the Hotel Meu rice, although not yet finished, has been taken by storm. The Meurice is a most smccessful combination of luxury and fashion with discretion and dist notion. The smell of fresh paint is still In its air and workmen are still busy about the house. Through ':.e first floor win dows not yet curtained, one sees girls at work but in the salon 3 one meets distinguished Frenchmen and Ameri cans like Prince Darenberg and General Wlnslow.
