Lane, assistant chief of the dairy division of the department of agricul ture at Washington, has made a sug gestion to the City club that the mayor offer prizes, to be paid in gold, for each baby which reaches the age of one year. Pure milk is the subject which led to the advice. Professor Lane says that such an offer made In a municipality In Europe has resulted in a great de crease in the death rate among in fants. Wise Talks By the "Office Boy" Little Johnnie owned a couple of bantam hens that laid very small eggs, this fact being dis pleasing to the youngster. Go ing to the fowl run one. morning Johnnies father was surprised to find a goose egg tied to one of the beams and above it a card ' -with the words, "Keep your eye I on this and do your best." ' I * The success of the Sllverwood Stores is due to the fact that we never sacrifice quality for profit. The Old Man has a motto which every employe Is. supposed jto keep his eye on and do his best Ito live jup to every day. It is, "Be kind, be truthful, be honest J and be industrious." . The trouble • with most o% us is that we don't j use the | common sense we were ■ endowed with. We forget that a : 1 duty I well done makes ' the next I duty easier to do.

PENNY LUNCHES AT ANN STREET SCHOOL PROVE BIG SUCCESS SCORES OF CHILDREN ENJOY GOOD MEAL DAILY Those Who Cannot Bring the Price Furnished with Tickets—Aver. age of Work Shows Much Improvement "Ding-dong!" It is noon at the Ann street school, a rush of hurrying feet, and 120 little noses eagerly sniff the savory odor ris ing from 120 bowls of soup. And, oh, it is such good soup and feels so "comfy" In the small 'tum mies! ■ Path&yc to watch, but inexpressibly delightful to participate in, the penny luncheon hns come to be an impor tant factor In the daily routine of the Ann street school, and which, it Is hoped, has come to stay. Armed with contributions from mer chants and private citizens, the local Civic association has taken up this good work, which was begun In the east, of serving penny luncheons to lit tle children who come to school, either without any breakfast or with not enough to nourish them properly. The association is starting with the Ann street school, where the pupils are of Mexican or foreign parentage, and where the need of this work is most sorely felt. One of the schoolrooms makes an ad mirable dining room and four long oilcloth covered tables are placed with benches down each side. Promptly at 11:45 a. m. everything is in readiness for the eager rush of hungry children who can hardly wait for the hour to arrive. Big white bowls with blur rims are tilled with thick, delicious soup, and there are two big cold buns at each place, with the necessary spoons and usually some kind of fruit, which, all together, make a meal tit for a king.' Staff Most Competent The work is under the personal su pervision of Mrs. N. E. Wilson, chair man of the committee in charge, and she and her staff of helpers are filling their office admirably. Children who cannot, bring even the one penny required are furnished with tickets, and the sweetest lessons in un selfishness anrl generosity aro taught by these little people. When, per chance, a midget has forgotten or lost his or her ticket some other child near by pays, that the troat may not be missed. The work, though started but a short time ago, is already showing remarka ble results; half-starve' bodies are re sponding to the kind treatment and the average of work In the school is Improving proportionately. There are several more schools 1n Los Angeles where the penny lunch eons would do great good, and if some charitably minded person has a few hundred dollars burning holes in his pocket he cannot put it to a better use than by contributing toward this good work. ALLEGED ASSOCIATES OF PICKPOCKETS SENTENCED Two Men Supposed to Have Operated at Laguna Dam Agree to Leave City George Wainwrlght and J. Ward, who were arrested by detectives as they stepped from a Southern Pacific train several days ago on suspicion of being members of a gang of pickpock ets which preyed on tho crowds at the Laguna dam opening at Yuma March 31, pleaded guilty to charges of va grancy and were given suspended -sen tences of 180 days in the workhouse by Police Justice Rose yesterday morning and ordered to leave the city. Ward and Wnlnwright were arrested with Charles Murphy and Charles Wade. The four men aro thought to have composed the gang that took valuables from a number of persons at the Arizona city. Because of lack of evidence the police could not connect them directly with any of the thefts from, person and a charge of vagrancy was all that could be placed against the men. Murphy and Wade pleaded guilty to similar charges several days ago and were given six months' suspended sen tences. They seemed eager to, have the opportunity to leave Los Angeles and promised to make a hurried departure. LOS ANGELES HERALD WEDNESDAY MORNINC, APRTL 7, 1909.

He is accused ot having at tempted to take the life of Myrtle Miles of 239 East Fifth street, with whom he had been on friendly terms, first by menacing her with a revolver and later by placing some crystals of cyanide of potassium in a glass of water. Of this the young woman, fortunately, merely tasted a small quantity. Kimmich has been working on the aqueduct for the last year. Several days ago he returned to 'this city and sought the young woman, whom ho had known for some time. He obtained her address, and while considerably under the Influence of liquor, entered the room she occupied. She was In bed at the time and Kimmlch demanded that she get up, leave the place and come and live with him. She refilled to do so and he began to threaten her. Finally, in an effort to pacify'hlm, she said she would get up, dress and talk to him if he would leave the room for a short time. He did so and on his return renewed his demands. When met with a flat refusal he drew a re volver and threatened to kill her. The woman struggled with him, but, finding she was unable to disarm him, changed her tactics and persuaded him to give up the weapon. She then hid the revolver and Kimmich, finding he was unable to persuade the woman to go with him, is alleged to have dropped the poison in a glass of water. He then left the place. Before retiring- the woman took a drink from the glass, but finding it to have a bitter taste, did not swallow it. She then notified Patrolman E. L. Jones of what had happened and he arrested Kimmich at his room. The accused declared he was drunk at the time he was in the woman's room, and says he has no recollection of what happened. He was arraigned in Police Justice Chambers' court on a charge of disturbing the peace and will appear today to have his trial set. He was unable to furnish $200 ball and was sent to Jail.

SELECTIONS BY MAYOR INDORSED COUNCIL APPROVES OF NEW COMMISSIONERS NEW MAN SUBSTITUTED ON THE PARK BOARD Two Nominations for Health Officials Made and Confirmed —Others to Be Appointed at an Early Date All the new commissioners appointed by Mayor Alexander were confirmed by the council by unanimous vote yester day morning. The fact that the motion for confirmation was made by Council man Lyon quickly put a quietus on the rumors that the mayor's nominations would be opposed by certain members of the council. AH the members seemed satisfied with the men the mayor had named, or, If they were not, they were none the less hearty in voting "aye" on the confirmation. Councilman Wallace was the only one to make any comment, and he declared that the mayor had chosen excellent material for his official advisers, and that such men were a guarantee of a good administration. The list was practically the same as the one announced by the mayor Mon day night. On the police commission are S. C. Graham, D. K. Trask, J. J. Andrews and John Topham. On the fire commission are Martin Betkouski, Richard Molony, Ben C. Robinson and R. B. Williamson. On the park com mission are Stoddard Jess, Richmond Plant, Jesse F. Waterman and C. H. Randall. Mr. Randall's name was substituted yesterday morning for that of Dr. W. A. Lamb. The mayor had chosen Dr. Lamb as a member of hiß park com mission because he had held the same position under Mayor McAleer and was familiar with the work of that depart ment. But Dr. Lamb has been a mem ber of the playground commission sev eral years, and preferred to stay with that body. Mayor Alexander respected Dr. Lamb's wishes and retained him in his present position. All the members of the playground commission were reappointed except Fernand Parmentier, whose term has expired. In his place E. R. Allen was chosen. Allen was formerly billboard inspector for the city, and gained fame by having his own position abolished, because under the terms of a recent ordinance passed by the council and affecting billboards, he had little or nothing to do. Mr. Allen rendered yoe man service during the recall campaign. The playground commission is now composed of the following: Mrs. Wll loughby Rodman, Miss Bessie Stod dard, Dr. W. A. Lamb, James G. Scar borough and E. R. Allen. Two members were named and con firmed for the health board. They are Dr. Sherwin Gibbons and ,Prof. L. J. Stabler. These two take the places of Drs. Moore and Dickson of Mayor Har per's board, who have resigned. Dr. Seymour and W. N. Newell are re tained, for the present at least. In speaking of future appointments on the board of health the mayor said he would wait a week or two before tak ing any definite action.

In some manner his hand slipped and the machinery, which was In mo tion, caught the cloth, and despite the efforts of Williams to extricate himself drew his hand into the sharp cogs. Former Police Commissioner Woodill was standing near and rushed to the assistance of Williams. Before he could reach the lever to stop the pump Williams' hand had been drawn into the cogs. H. L,. Miller, secretary of the pmplng concern for which Williams works, ac companied the injured man to the re ceiving hospital.
