Brady, according to young Dodge, was
a confirmed lottery fiend and played the game of chance regularly. He was a man of wealth at one time, owning large landed properties in Yolo. Through in vestments In stocks he lost it all. A few years ago Brady was kicked in the head by a horse and Injured, and it is said he had been partly insane since. cative about his affairs. He seemed to have some money, and did not work. He settled his room rent promptly with the exception of the last month. When he left here he owed the landlady 512 and said that he would pay her as soon as he received the money at Watsonville. According to the story told by young Dodge, he had done nursing for the Nu gent family. He had claimed 5230 for ser vices on the death of Nugent. This was not paid, and he brought suit, securing an award for $123. Brady often spoke of the money due him. and said the daugh ter did not like him.

At tached to the pole were a number of elec tric light wires, which became a source of much danger to horses and pedestrians who were obliged to pass. Traffic over the Southern Pacific Rail road between this city and Ocean View was suspended yesterday morning for some hours, owing to the collapse of a. wooden bridge which spans the Southern Pacific track3 at San Jose and Vernon avenues. The heavy deluge of rain which occurred early yesterday morning so loos ened the buttments of the bridge that it suddenly collapsed. The bridge was constructed by Herman Joost fourteen years ago. Since the timo o'f it3 construction the bridge has never been strengthened to withstand the traf fic of heavy teams and the constant crossing to and fro of the San Francisco and San Mateo electric cars. A construction train with a gans of men was sent from the depot at Fourth and Townsend streets to the scene of tha blockade, and they succeeded in clearing the road for traffic in a few hours.

The wind is blowing a gale to-night and the indications are excellent for a heavy Btorm. The crop prospects are very bright. Miners and men who are identified with tho big electric power plants along the Yuba, American and other streams hope and expect that the storm will lodge a great blanket of snow on the mountains. The reports of excessive rainfall at Ne vada City and the dispatches giving ac count of washouts In the region of Red ding, the record of high water at Colusa, lead to the conclusion that this January storm will not subside until there Is a great lodgment of snow in places where It 'Is most needed. The counties of Trin ity, Lassen, Shasta, Nevada, Placer, El Dorado, Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador and Marlposa will surely derive great ben efit from the precipitation of rain and enow.' The outlook Xor a long continued and regular water supply; within the drainage zone of the Yuba, Feather, Bear, American, Tuolumne, Stanislaus and Mer ced rivers is very promising. This year the counties : of Na pa. Marin, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino and Humboldt have been favored with generous rains. Kain gauges at Napa City and the Vet- After the snow blockade during the win ter of 1S05-96 the Southern Pacific was equipped with rotary snowplows. These snow-fighting machines are stationed at Emigrant Gap, Cisco, Summit and True kee. There is also one at Slsson ready for service on the Oregon line. At no time since the equipment of the line with the big rotarles has there been an urgent demand for their use. The present storm, however, may lodge a sufficient quantity ot snow to bring them into action. The operating department of the South ern Pacific has no reports indicative of a heavy snowfall along the line of the railroad in the Sierras. The agent at Summit wired yesterday that one foot of snow had fallen. This is light, indeed, considering the extent of the storm and the abundant showers of rain In the foot hills. As the temperature falls the volume of snow may, increase. Professor Alexander G. McAdie of the United States Signal Service is in wire communication with Red Bluff, Carson, Independence and Winnemucca. His nd vlces Indicate that the storm is heavy along the mountain tributaries of the Sacramento. A further rise in the upper river Is anticipated. Press reports and private telegrams represent that rain is falling in Southern California, where it is most needed. ' The flood in the Sacramento River near Colusa yesterday was within five inches of the danger line. It is inferred that a great storm is raging in the region of country around Mount Shasta and throughout the Siskiyou Mountains, as telegraphic communication with the country north of Red Bluff is interrupted. The storm is spreading over the coun try east of the Sierras. At Carson, Nev . yesterday at 10 o'clock in the morning it was raining hard and a high southwest wind prevailed. At the 'same hour Id "Winnemucca the wind was blowing from the northeast. The descending moisture was half rain and half snow. At Inde pendence the wind came from the south east. Rain Will Do an Immense Amount of Good to Farms. PROSPECTS ENCOURAGING. LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27.— One. of the heaviest rainstorms of the season pre vails to-night throughout Southern Cali fornia and will result in incalculable good to all interests. The storm began at an early hour this morning and has contin ued throughout the day, the clouds with holding the moisture only at short 'nter vals. Up to 5 o'clock this afternoon, when the measurements were taken at the "Weather Bureau, .84. of an Inch had fallen, and .92 of an Inch for the storm. Since that hour enough has fallen to make more than an inch for the past twenty-four hours. Everything indicates a continuance of the downpour through the night. The present storm dispels the fears of a dry season among the agriculturists and restores confidence' of the entire- busi ness world. of this section. Reports from points in the southern part of the State bring news of a generous downpour and corresponding improvement in conditions. At. Santa Barbara an Inch and a half of rain fell during the past " twenty-tour hours, with no Indications of a cessation of the downpour. All points in the vicin ity of Santa Barbara and along the coast southward report heavy precipitation, amounting at some places to two Inches. The wind at Santa Barbara is blowing strongly from the southeast, which Is re- It is expected that great damage will result in many sections of the State. McAdie says that people who want to start East would do better to stay at home unless they want to winter some where in the Rockies. At Point Reyes the wind had attained a velocity of seventy miles an hour last night and was gaining strength. been a great deal of winter Irrigation. The rainfall to date is 8.12 inches against 4.15 Inches to the same time last year. There is every prospect of a continued downpour throughout the night. DOWNPOUR IK THE SOUTH. All day long the "lids" of dignified pedestrians were speeding in drunken tracks through the reeking streets, while interested spectators, who elected to stay their arduous courses for a moment, shouted encouragement U> the unhappy pursuer. Now and then throughout the day a man could be Been breaking sprint ing records from shelter to shelter, only to fall in the . muck by the wayside and rise with dismay painted on his face and a landscape on his trousers. And all the time there was no letup of the torrents from the celestial sluice gates. The patrons of that "route" where water is but a memory of childhood be came disconcerted in the fear that all things were turning into "Adam's ale." The superstitious trembled lest biblical as well as profane history might repeat itself and grew ill with alarm in calculat ing their chances of being among the small group that might get Into tho ark. But withal, McAdie, the weather prophet, asserts that the downpour has just commenced and that the rains will descend and the floods come for several days yet. Where it all comes from, not even he will venture to guess, and he possesses volumes of. "meteorological lore which are supposed to make plain the ways of the god of storms. The wires were* interrupted for a time from the East and from the North. Snow is falling In the Sier ras. The ocean is wild and de structive and shipping interests are in great danger.

The Burlinganie people, imbued with the Idea that there would be no more wet winters, dammed an unsightly creek last summer, but nature to-day asserted herself in the good old way.

Jan. 27.— Heavy rainfall has been In progress here since noon to-day, and at 7 o'clock this evening it measured .97 of an inch. The rainfall in the foot hills last night and to-day was much heavier than in San Jose, and the small streams on the West side of the valley are bank full.

The storm is of inestimable value to this county. Reports received here this evening from the towns in the foothills east of Stockton state that many washouts and landslides have occurred. Smaller bridges have been washed away and travel by team is impossible. The reports of washouts on the Sierra Rail road are untrue, but all trains have been stopped, three landslides having occurred. The trouble occurred in precipitous cuts through hills, anfi was caused by the heavy rains saturating the ground and causing It to give way. Large slices of the earth caved and covered the track. Stages were put on to run from James town to Angels Camp to accommodate local travel, but owing to the inconveni ence which would result to train pas sengers it was deemed best to stop traf fic over the railway. . BAKERSFIELD, Jan. 27.— About 3 o'clock this afternoon a heavy wind stcrm, traveling with a velocity of thirty miles an hour, struck the McKlttrick oil fields in the western part of Kern County. Sweeping through the midst of the der ricks, the storm did damage to tho amount of several thousand dollars. More than a dozen of the tall derricks were blown down like ninepins.

Flood water from the Yuba and Feather rivers is doing much damage and to-night both rivers are roaring torrents. The Yuba registers 17 feet 3 inches and is ris ing. The track of the Oroville Railroad is overflowed and no trains came from the foothill town this afternoon. Passen gers on the San Francisco train for that place were transferred by boats. A large washout is reported at Reeds Station to the south, and- the Red Bluff local came by way of Knights Landing.

Also a Few Facts on the Same Subject We hear much nowaday? about health foods and hygienic living, about vege- larianipm and many other fads along the urae line. Restaurant? may be found in the larger < [ties whore no moat, pastry or coffee is served and the food crank is in his glory, , and arguments and theories galore are advanced to prove that -meat, xtras never hitt^nded for human stomachs, and almost make us believe that our sturdy ancestors who lived four score years in robust health on roast beef, pork and mutton mast have been grossly ignorant of the laws of health. Our forefathers had other things to do lhan formulate theories about the food they ate. A warm welcome was extend- <-d to any kind from bacon to acorns. A healthy appetite and common sense are excellent guides' to follow In matters of diet, and a mixed diet of grain?, fruits and meats is undoubtedly the best. Ag compared with grains and vegeta- bles, meat furnishes the most nutriment in a highly concentrated form and is di- gcktod and is assimilated more quickly than vegetables and grains. Ur. Julius Remmson en this subject says: "Nervous persons, people run down in health and of low vitality should eat meat and plenty of it." If the digestion i> too feeble at f.rst it may be easily cor- leeted by the regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal. Two of these excellent tablets t.iken after din- ner will digest several thousand grains of meat, epgs or other animal food in three liourF, and no matter how weak the stomach may be. no trouble will be expe- rienced if a regular practice is made of using Stuart'p Uyspepsia Tablets because ihey supply the pepsin and diastase nec- essary to perfect' digestion, and every form of indigestion will bo cvercome by iNeir use. That larg-e cla?? of people who come i:nder the head of nervous dyspeptics should eat plenty of meat and ins.ure its proper digestion by the daily use of a .^aSe, harmless digestive medicine like .Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, composed of the natural digestive principles, pepsin, diastase, fruit acids and salts, which actually perform the work of digestion. Cheap cathartic medicine?, masquerading under the name of dyspepsia cures, are useless for indigestion, as they have ab- ¦olatcly r.o effect upon the actual diges- tion of food. Dyspepsia in all Its many forms Is simply a failure of the stomach to di- »r<'st food and the sensible way to solve the riddle and cure the dyspepsia is to make daily use at meai time of a prepar- ation like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which i? indorsed by the medical profes- yiou and known to contain active diges- tive principles. f23j CMICHECTCR'S CN6USH Pennyroyal pills fJ\&i&L ** CHICIIESTEIVS KNGLJ5H i3k r£\i « r" 1 Lin.r-.bb... f Kkolo .iJier.
