Several thousand light-hearted An
gelenos who put their trust in the
weather prophets were greviously dt«
appointed yesterday when Jupiter Plu
vlus, in contradiction to all precedent,
unloosed his showers in the after
noon. "Fair and cloudy," said the lo
cal seer; "cloudy and unsettled," said
the state prophet of things pertaining
to his field; and neither gave warning
of the rain which came about 6 o'clock.
Rain as late as May 26 is a rara avis
and as unwelcome as it Is infrequent;
and perhaps none of the Sunday
crowds who received the dripping ap
preciated the novel experience of show
ers at this time of the year.
At 1 o'clock a few scattered drops
fell, but not enough to make an im
pression on the dusty streets. At 5
o'clock, however, the precipitation was
more general and a great deal heavier;
and throughout the downtown district
the streets were cleaned and the side
walks drenched by the shower.
The later shower caught many peo
ple on the streets. Everywhere cover
less automobiles made a hasty run for
the nearest garage, pedestrians sought
the closest shelter of friendly awning
or open store; and everybody looked
surprised and grieved at the remarka
ble phenomenon. <

Ervin H. Miller, city chemist, after
an Investigation of several days, dur
ing which analyses of Los Angeles
river water were made, makes some
interesting comparisons of his results
with those of W. H. Helleman, tho
government chemist who for the six
months ending April 30 made weekly
analyses of the Owens river at Char
ley's Butte, the intake.
Mr. Miller finds that the Owens
river water Is superior for domestic
purposes to the water now supplied to
the city. In the comparison that he
makes he says Owens river water con
tains only three-fourths as much mat
ter or salts In solution as the Loa
Angeles river water, which the city is
now using.
The samples of Los Angeles river
water were taken from the main on
The samples taken by Mr. Heileman
were from the Owens river. All river
water contains some mineral salts, so
that his analyses show the maximum
quantity of salts which the water Los
Angeles is to use will contain. All
other water purchased by the city In
Owens valley is still better, the
mingling of the waters forming an av
erage water which will be almost twice
as pure as the present supply.
Makes Comparison
Mr. Miller was requested by the cam
paign committee and officials of the
Los Angeles Aqueduct to make a care
ful comparison of Mr. Helleman's re
sults with those of his own. The ac
companying signed statement gives the
result of his investigations.
The table of comparison showing Los
Angeles river water to contain twenty
five per cent more salts In solution,
than Owens river water is as follows:
L. A. City
Aqueduct. Supply.
Snlts In solution 22.0 29.0
Lime (calcium. Ca.) . . 2.0 4.4
Magnesium (Mg.).... 0.6 1,5
Sodium and Potassium
(Na. and X.) 5.3 2.6
Sulphate (SO4) 2.5 R.B
Acis carbonate (HCO3) 11.5 15.4
Mr. Helleman made twenty-two
analyses, in all of the water of Owens
river at the point where the city will
divert its supply. The period over
which the tests extended, November
until the end of April, is such as to
show the quality of the water under
almost every condition of drouth and
His report on his findings as made
to the government is to the effect thai
he found the water to be satisfactory.
"On the basis of mineral content,"
says Mr. Heileman in his report, "the
water at the intake of the proposed
Owens river aqueduct, for the period
studied, is, for a western water, of good
quality for municipal and industrial
use. It necessarily follows that for
agricultural purposes its quality can
in no wise be questioned.

Tenderfoot's Impression of
the Big Camp
Over In Globe, Ariz., /which la one
of the richest and biggest copper cen
ters In the territory, they have some
thing else -to talk about just now be
sides the output of ore and the rise
and fall of mining stocks. The town
and the entire district surrounding it
are In a state of excited anticipation
over the engagement of Mrs. Fiske and
the Manhattan company, who are go
ing to stop off for a night on their way
to Los Angeles ancf give a perform
ance of "The New York Idea."
Philip Jacques, Mrs. Flske's advance
representative, arrived In Los Angeles
from Globe yesterday. He is an east
erner whose views of the west had
been gained by visits to larger cities.
When he reached Globe, he says, ho
felt aa If he stepped Into the pages of
a magazine story. The wealth and ac
tivity of this little town of some eight
thousand people, situated In a hollow
among the mountains, were a revela
•There is no doubt that Mrs. Fiske
will be greeted with enthusiasm in
Globe," said Mr. Jacques,* "for I have
never seen greater appreciation and in
terest than Is displayed there oyer her
appearance. Everybody Is talking
about It and the majority of the seats
had been Bold when I arrived there.
The railroad which connects Globe
with the rest of the world Is to run an
excursion train that will bring hun
dreds from the towns in the Gila val
ley Besides, there are no end of peo
ple coming by stage and wagon from
other mining towns and ranches from
which there is no train connection.
One order came from seventy-flve
miles distant and the writer has to
come by wagon all the way.
"The theater in Globe is made to
serve the additional purpose of a skat-
Ing rink. It Is an immense structure,
but the Indications are that It will be.
filled to Its capacity. The commercial
travelers who mako Globe are aiding
Manager Alexander in 'boosting" tho
engagement and are taking posters of
the play to the towns roundabout that
they visit. Every settlement in that
section of Arizona has, I am told, its
poster of Mrs. Flske.
"To get to Globe you leave the
Southern Pacific at a junction point
called Bowie and ride for four hours
to the end of the Glla Valley, Globe
& Northern, which runs jone train vt
day up and down the line. First you
cross fifty miles of the worst sort of
desert, then through a fertile irrigat
ed district, then past the Apache res
ervation, where Geronimo used to
make trouble, and then wind among
the mountains till the train stops in
a sort of gulch and there la Globe.
The principal street straggles oft down
the gulch. You see an Imposing mod
ern court house and a new hotel, both
of which would do credit to far larg
er places, and a miscellaneous mass ot
buildings of adobe, brick and wood.
Houses, ono above the other, .straggle
up the hills in every direction. It is
a chaos of the old and the new; of
the temporary and the permanent.
"For an Idea of the slie of Globe
you must follow the main street along
Its tortuous way. The people have
been so busy taking copper out of the
hills that they are only just beginning
to take the kinks out of the street,
and level It and lay sidewalks. At
night especially the picture the town
presents Is to an easterner the sort of
thing he reads about and sees sketches
of, but never expects actually to come
into contact with. To make headway
along the street you have to elbow
your way among crowds of miners, In
dians, Mexicans, Italians, Chinese and
Japanese. The lower end of the street
Is an alternation of saloons and 'short
order' restaurants. How so many of
theny can exist Is a mystery until you
realize that everybody makes money
in Globe, and lota of it.
"Mingled with this flotsam, there are
well dressed men and women whose
appearance shows education and re
tlrement and wealth. At the hotel
■stamen dress for dinner as they would
in Loa Angeles. And after the In
diana and mountaineers who trot by
on their ponies may come men and
women in the smartest riding togs.
"It must be nearly two miles to the
end of the main street, where the mine
that makes the town Is located. Here
hundreds of men are employed in the
mine itself, the smelter and the con
centrator: The plant has both steam
and electric railroads of Its own and
stretches over a big section of hill and
"My impression Is that this will be
the first time that an actress of Mrs.
Flske's distinction, together with a
company comprising suen noted play
ers as John Mason, George Arliss,
Charles Harbury, Marion Lea and the
others in the Manhattan company,
have appeared In a town like Globe.
The chance to see a New York com
pany and production, especially when it
is one of the notable successes of the
season. In the first year of Its career,
is something that even Los Angeles,
not to mention Arizona mining camps,
does not often have."
The tour that brings Mrs. Flske to
the Burbank next week is another In
stance of her pluck In the face of the
obstacles that her Independence makes
for her. Though on account of In
dependence most of the theaters where
first-class attractions regularly play
are barred to her, Mrs. Flske Is making
a tour of unusual length that will In
clude nery all of the principal cities of
the west. An odd feature of the Jour
ney is the fact that she and her com
pany are traveling on Dunkard tickets,
though the Dunkards themselves ab
hor the theater and all its people. But
the Dunkard rates were lower than the
regular fare and open to everyone, so
the company took advantage of them.
