Ihe Ban Felipe Sint in Southern Cali fornia. From the Few York Timet. Indio, Cal., April 13.— ‘‘Few divers care to descend more than 80 feet below the sur face of the ocean, yet there are many per sons on the Pacific coast who think nothing of descending from 200 to 900 feet below the surface level of the Pacific, and not only that, but live there.” This siatement one often hears in Califor nia especially in the southern portion, and it is somewhat puzzling to the “tenderfoot.” It contains, however, the elements cf truth, as almost every one who conies into South ern California 'through San Diego county passes below the ocean level. > The Southern Pacific railroad engineers found, when building the road, that in East San Diego county there was a remarkable depression, evidently the dry bed of an an cient laka This is known as the San Felipe sink, and presents a singular appearance, calling to mind the famous Humboldt sink farther north. The San Felipe sink has still another name—the Conchiila valley— so called from the fact that its surface is covered with shells, showing conclusively that it has been the bed of a lake that at least had a dense molluscan population some time in the past, but how long ago it would be difficult to say. The spot was first noticed by Surgeon Widney of the United States army many years ago. He observed the shore hue, and came to the conclusion that in the distant r ast a large body of water had stood here. When the surveyors ran their line across the depression they found that it was one of the most remarkable places on the conti nent—a cavity near what is now the town of Salton, 268 feet below the surface of the Pacific. This sink or old lake bed is 130 miles long by 30 miles wide, and the point of greatest depth is 360 feet below the ocean level. The region is one of great interest. In the sum mer it is so hot that the thermometers, ac o rding to a native, are made on the tele scopic plan, and 105" is normal in the shade. Still, sut,stroke is never known in the sink, o wing probably to the low relative humid- ity. In wandering through this remarkable place there are many things to attract the a'tention. On its northern side are some fine date plants that have been growing here for ages, at least beyond the memory of the oldest inhabitants. They range from 60 to 80 feet in bight, and present a grand and picturesque appearance against the mountains. The trees bear dates of a com mercial value, the bunches weiging from 75 to 125 pounds. The trees can be seen by the passengers on the train as it passes the town of Indio, and one wonders how long they have watched over the dismal shores and if the lake was a lake in reality in their day. T 1 at the lake was salt is shown by the enormous deposits of this mineral. It is especially noticeal le at tho town of Salton, whorefor many miles the pedestrian travels on a perfect crust of salt, ranging from a few inches to several feet in thickness. The principal business followed here is the collection of salt. A number of large mills collect and grind it, and several tons are shipped every week to various parts of the country. In some parts of the sink, artesian wells have been developed, and wi at was originally a desert is now rich in greens and various tropical and semi tropical fruits and flowers are raised. The tourist should stop at the town of Indio and make this the central point from which in vestigations can be made, and he will be well repaid. The native inhabitants of this curious region are a tribe of about 400 Cohuilla India s, who have apparently strayed out here from the Cohuilla valley. Those ex amined by the writer near the valley were, as a rule a worthless set, with little or no ambition beyond obtaining their living from the government, and no little sym pathy been wasted upon them, thoujh it iR true that they have been cheated and had lands stolen from them. Dr. Stephen Boners, in an interesting paper read before the Ventura County Natural History Sooiety stives some new ideas regarding them. He considers them lineal descendants of the old Aztecs. Their religion includes sun and fire wor ship at the present day, and they believe in the transmigration of souls. Many of their ideas resemble those of the Buddhists. Thus while the latter believe that the soul of a friend eniers into the elephant per haps, the Cohuilla believes that the coyote that prowls around may perhaps be all that is left of some of his people. The dead are cremated. This band makes and uses the stone mortars so common throughout the country for grinding the mesquite bean and coffee, when they happen to have it. We see, then, that this remarkable pit has been utilized by mankind. Farmers are taking possession, salt men find it profit able, and the Indians make it their homo; hut it remains for Dr. Bindley of Los An geles to announce to the world that the Han Felipe sink is a natural sanitarium, so to speak. Dr. Lindley is the vice president of the State Medical Society of California, and consequently is an authority. During a visit to the San Felipe sink he noticed a large number of invalids, espe cially asthmatics, rheumatics aud consump tives, many of whom claimed remarkable progress. The consumptives asserted that the fart her below the sea level they went the easier they could breathe, while the rheumatic patients said that the heat and dryness had some effect upon their circula tion, or at le&st gave them help. Dr. Liud -1-y in a paper compares the conditions which exist here incidentally to the pneu matic cabinet. He quotes Dr. H. B La throp as authority for the statement that con,pressed air relieves asthmatics and cases of phthisis. He found that the com pressed air forced itself into the lungs and every portion of them, so that the pressure was equalized. This is, of course, a natural result. It is said that here one has condition* similar lo the compressed air treatment, but Dr. Lindley states that, the pressure at the bottom of the Han Felipe sink would uot be as much as that in a regular cabinet. -be idea conveyed is that the great depres sion takes the place or such a cure, enabling wno’ *' ve ' u the favorable conditions. Whim a patient enters a regular cabinet several times a day, at Salton he is breath ing. according to Dr. Lindley. the com pressed air all the time. No very extended research's orinvesiigatio; a have been made in this direction, but those made are ot peculiar interest to that unfortunate class— the invalids. That there is something in the idea is shown by the interest taken In Europe, pear the River Jordan in the valley of the ‘ cad sea, an American is establishing a sanitarium, proposing to endow it. The sink here is far more remarkable than the one in California, being fully 1,200 feet be surface of the ocean. The founder ot this institution built it in the belief that where the atmospheric pressure was the Ri eatest there respiration was easiest. These curious depressions are found in various ( arts of the globe and possess a peculiar in terest. iu Algeria there are several, rang ing from fifty to 100 feet, and the Sahara oesert has four or five well knowu to the iiequenlers of this strange country, ti llJ 4 *'' iWtei 'n California we find the sink of the Aiii .igosa, or Arroyo del Cunerto, a depression of 225 feet below the sea level. “ Caspian ses, according to Russian . gmO'Ts, is 85 feet below sea level, and if inke Assal, m the eastern portion of Abys *mia was dry, one could walk down 700 m< t below ttie o ean level. 'Phis lake calls > mind ttie country about Bsltou, as the "hi res are covered with a deposit of salt in s niio pieces over a foot deop. Lake Assal is ahi nil eight miles long and four wide, and its " lores are frequento.i by Afars, who carry me - ait away in caravans to A yssiniu. ino Libyan desert has several of these de pressions, among w,.ich ti e oasis of El Soe wah IN the most interesting, bring 120 feot below tho level of the sea. The oasi-, of , n J'm the same legion, is 200 feet below L.io .sea level. I o great Humboldt sink in Nevada is a K f od example of these depressions, and a more desolate, dreary region it is difficult w imagine. Hemtnes must have obtained his original idea of the hole here, as from a distance one appears approaching a vast hole in the earth. The country has a weird appearance, and one can weil imagine almost anything. There is something uncanny about the place, as a river runs into it and disappears, so the Indians think —in short, sinks, and that is tho end of it. Where it goes they do not care or think, but it flows into this region and stops, and, of c iurse, there is something very mysterious about it. The Indians will tell you that the sink has no bottom, and it is true enough that the actual bottom has not been discovered. A vast deposit of mud, the accumulation of centuries, lies here and will probably in time fill up the sink so that water will not stand there. In riding along the foot hill country of the Sierra Madras, about twenty miles west of San Bernardino county, one sees a curious sink or depression just below and to the west of Riverside.gThe Southern Pacific railroad runs along its bed, aud from far away looks like some uncanny monster breathing fire and smoke from its nostrils, creeping along in a Slough of Despond. Lake Elsinore is a singular depression, though not below the sea level, and to the east is still another that was in all prob ability once filled with water. Another, not belo w the sea level, lies to the east, and the writer has crossed a singular dry lake between Murrietta and San Jacinto. Here the rocks that were once washed by waves are still standing, jagged, point ing upward—monuments of the old shore line. As to the exact value of these depressions below the sea level time and careful exami nation alone can determine, but the ques tion is certainly one of peculiar interest. If a patient were living iu the San Felipe sink far below the sea level and desired a radical change he could in less than a day attain the summit of a mountain 11,000 feet in bight, showing some of the curious possi bilities of Southern California. FAIB LADY DENTISTS. A New Sphere of Work and Profit for the Gentle Sex. From the New York Star. The profession of dentistry is one which offers to women an agreeable avenue of es cape from the circumscribed sphere of de pendence, or the ill paid labor of the needle or the factory. As yet they have not taken advantage of it to any great extent, for out of the 16,000 dentists in the United States not more than sixty are women, and in the city of New York there are only about half a dozen, and of these only two prac tice on their own account, the others being employed as assistants by men. The pioneer woman-dentist of the coun try is probably Mrs. Philippine Dieffenbach Truchsoss, wno has conducted an office on West Twenty-third street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, for the past fifteen years. Her first husband, Dr. Dieffenbach, had a dental establishment on Canal street, back in the ’sos, aud while she was still in her “teens” she amused herself by putting to use the mechanical talent with which na ture had endowed her by assisting him in his laborat >ry in the making of plates. In 1858 he secured a patent for anew kind of plate, the invention of which was largely due to his wife. In 1861 he went, to Ger many, ostensibly to dispose of his patent, and never returned to hiß home. Mrs. Dieffenbach pluckily determined to contin ue the business, aud she has done so ever since, with the aid of assistants, building up a reputation ns one of the most expert mechanical dentists in the profession. She has a wemail’s aversion to the sight of blood and pain, and avoids drawing teeth, unless it is absolutely necessary, although she is very skillful in this brauc iof the business wuich is known as dentai surgery. Her specialty is artificial woi k, particularly the delicate process of taking impressions of the mouths of patients. Her assistant, who takes care of the surgical branch, is Dr. H. F. Massch, a young man, but one who has acquired fame in the profession by the invention of instruments for anew process of putting a crown o i a tooth. Bne is very proud of a little card which she has certifying that she is an honorary member of the Students’ Society of the New York College of Dentistry. She was elected Dec. 17, 1888, and is the first and only woman who has been accorded that distinction. When the law was passed in this state prohibiting any person from practicing dentistry who had not a proper license, she was accorded a license without being required to pass an examination, be cause of her well-known standing in the profession. Her laboratory is also a work shop for several young tudauts of the Now York College of Dentistry, who b 'ard with her, and iu whose studies she takes a great deal of interest. “1 like,” she said, “to work with them. It not only helps them, but it keeps me from sticking in old ruts and I can keep pace with the progress of the art.” The New York Dental College does not admit women as studuents. There is no absolute law preventing their matriculation but whenever, one applies, which is every year or two, the is told that her association with male students will be very likely to be unpleasant, and sue is scared away. One woman however, didn’t scare. Sue was the Russian Countess H. V. H*v iderska, the daughter of a wealthy physician of St. Petersburg. Her noble spouse sqandered all her dowry, and sho left him with tho de termination to earn a living for herself and child. She came to New York with strong letters of recommendation, and succeeded in getting her name on the college roll. At the end of the course she failed to pass, but she tried again and succeeded. Then sne returned to St. Petersburg and opened an office, and was soon in the en joyment of a large revenue from her bractiee, being pat ronized by the nobility and royalty. Another graduate fro n an American col lege, Henrietta Hirschfiold of Berlin, who took her diploma from the Cincinaatts College of Dentistry, returned to Berlin, in 1869, and was fortunate enough to at once secure the royal patronage. Since then a number of women have come to this coun try to study, and after graduation have re turned to their European homes to practice. Among them are Mrs. Anna Van Daeu ming of Vienna, who is the dentist of the Empress of Austria, and enjoys a practice worth $12,000 a year, aud Mrs. Dr. Ruby E. Clifford of Loudon, who cares for the toeth of Queen Victoria. There is also a German baroness in Loudon who enjoys the reputation of being the most clever tooth extractor in England. Women are also admitted to the Phila delphia Dental College and the Pennsylva nia Dental Collegs, which this year has three women graduates, one of whom, a daughter of Dr. Carman of this city, stood at tho head of her class and carried off nearly all of the medals and honors. One of the other two women took the second place in the class. In the University of Michigan Dr. Margaret Humphry wa, for several years assistant demonstrator to Dr. Wattling, treasurer of the dental depart ment, aud one of the officers of the state dental society. VV hen she resigned to place herself in condition to give curtain lectures she was succeeded by Dr. Elsie Hallock, who also resigned to take a husband. W omen ara gladly reoeived at the Ann Arbor Den tul College, and their male classmates treat them with the greatest respect. Dr. < 'assius M. Richmond of No. 70 West Thirty-Fifth street believes that women are adapted to tho profession of dentistry, “it ha* lately become a fascinat ing study among young ladies,” he said re cently, “and the time is coming when the colleges will ! ave about as many of them as oi young men in tho classes. Women now are rapidlv taking tho places of men and boys as assistants in the offices of male dentists all over the world. They are more agreeable lo patients, particularly t > lady imiients, for there is no smell of stale tobac co aud other tilings about them, and t b6y are always excellent mechanics. Miss Genevieve Smith, who has been an assist ant in the office of Dr. Norman, W. Kings ley for some years, is not only an efficient operator in regulating the teeth, but )• also a most c.ever operator in what wo call oloft-palats cases. THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY. APRIL 19, 1889. Dr. Kingsley followed this as a specialty, and bis assistant almost, if not quite, equals him in skill. Besides those mentioned, there are Miss Jessie F. Deletion, sister to Miss Adelaide Detchon, the actress, who graduated at Philadeiuhia; Mrs. E. Jones Young, who has a p. osperous business on Chapel street, New Haven; Mrs. Dr. Bullock of Hartford, Mrs. Anna Randall cf this city and Mrs. Anna Riley of Ohio. THE EIFFEL TOWER. How the Tallest Artificial Structure on Earth Looks To-day. From the Vossiche Zeitung. The monstrous tower designed by En gineer Eiffel for the Paris exposition has three stories or divisions. The first story is sixty meters high (a meter is equal to thirty-nine inches) aud rests on the arches which join the four foundation columns that carry upon them the entire weight of the huge tower. The tower has four distinct sections. Each wing is provided with a refreshment saloon that may he reached by means of winding staircases under the foundation piers. Notwithstanding the center of the space has been set apart for tho elevator there still remain 4,200 square meters of floor room for the accommodation of visi tors who may desire to promenada and en joy a view of the city from that hight. The apartments are very roomy, and pre cautions have been taken to insure the visitors against ail possibility of accident. An iron railing about four feet high, with an arched roof to exclude the intense rays of the sun, surrounds the extreme edge of tue platforn, as it may be called, which has been reserved as a promenade for those who desire to walkabout. The requirements for the comfort of the inner man, too, have not been forgotten. Kitchens, storerooms, ice-chests and the like have been fitted up in tho most handy manner imaginable, so that there is little occasion to fear that the supply of stimulating refreshments will give out, even in the days when such lodg ings in the hotels and private houses will not be obtainable for love or money. Eaoh one of the four cafes is provided with a cellar capable of storing 200 tuns of wine. Everything about the structure is abso lutely fireproof, for iron is the only ma terial that has been used in its construc tion. Two thousand persons per hour can ascend and descend the staircase leading to the platform, and 4,000 can find seats to rest upon the cafes at one time. The second story which is sixty meters above the first one, is also reached by four stairoases built iusule of the supporting columns, which make a sharp inward curve, leaving but 1,400 square meters of surface for the platform ad promenade. Here, too, in the commodious and haud somely decorated cafe the thirsty and tired sightseer may fin l something more potent t han Seine water to recuperate his strength. This story is ninety-one meters above the tip of the Notre Da ue steeple and higher than the tow or of the palac of the Troca dero, on the other side of the river, and, as may easily be imagined, the view of the surrounding country to be had from such an altitude is almost indescribable. From here on the columns of the tower fall iu toward each other until they ascend a dis tauci of 27> meters above the ground, w here the third and last story is situated. Only one staircase leads to tle third story, which is for the exclusive use of the persons employed in the tower, and all visi tors are expected to use the elevators, two in number, to reach that point. The plat form is eighteen meters square, still large enouga to erect thereon a comfortably sized dv elling. The view here is simply superb. The story is equipped with reflect ing mirrors and a large supply of field glasses for tnose who wish to use them. Ii; has been ostimated that the ordinary eye can discern objects seventy miles away. The tower terminates in what is known as the lantern, twon;y five meters above the third section, but this place has been set aside for the use of the scientists for making observations. How They Vote in Greece. From the Lewitton Journal. "Any man in Greece can be a candidate for any office,” said Dr. Constantine; “and when a man announces himself as a candi date, the government must provide a ballot box for him. If ten men announce them selves as candidates for mayor, a separate box is set up for each candidate and ovary voter must vote in each of the ten boxes.” “Theu each candidate would get the same number of votes, I should think.” “That is possible, but I never kuew it to happen. Let me explain a little further. “We vote with black and wmte balls. Each ballot box is divided into a black and white compartme it with a funnel in the middle. Every voter is given white balls aud black balls, and putting his baud down in the funnel, drops tnein as he chooses. A white hall is for, and a black ball against a man. If tne citizen wisnes to vote for Mr. A, and for him only, he drops a white ball into his box and black balls into the other nine (there are ta i candidates), or he can vote for two of the candidates—or for the whole ten if he chooses, his vote being really of no account in that case, of course. The man who has most white tux)ls in his box is elected. When two representatives are to be elected, the mail having the next highest number of white balls gets the second place and so on.” What an Obliging Crocodile 1 From the New York World. Tampa, Fla., April 14.—J. W. Velie, secretary of the Academy of Science, Chicago, and others who have been on an exploring expedition in the Everglades, re turned to-day in the schooner Tycoon, bringing with them twenty srockodiles, one measuring 13 feet 8 inches, the largest ever captured in Florida. Ttie capture of ihe marine monster was effectei near Key Largo, and was attended with great danger. After being ha pooneil the crocodile car ried the boat thirty miles to sa at a terrific speed and back again almost to shore, when its captors succeeded in getting several turns of a rope round its body and fi ally got it ashore. Velie expects to leave for Chicago Tuesday aud will take the crocodile with him and place it on exhibition m Lin coln park. MEDICAL.

Clothing buyers are cautioned against the loud ringing of bells, so to speak, and against some tall bragging in advertise tuenls, as nine times out of ten it is done not by real merit, but merely to confuse you. “But,” you will say, “how is one to tell the falso from the true, among all that babble?” We answer, don’t be carried away by jingoism and flaring advertise ments. If your means are limited, and you desire to get the full value for your money, go to “THE FAMOUS,” and if you are any judge at all of Clothing, you will see at once that we save you from Three to Five Dollars on a suit. This is no empty boast, as we are manufacturers, and by buying from us you buy from first hands.
