UNCLAIMED EXPRESS SALE.
The Adams Ezprcs Company Dumps a
Lot of Old Rubbish on the Unsus
pecting of Thb Locality.
The Adams Express Compans sato of
unolnimod express matter in this city
last Friday was mora of a lottery than
anything that has come to our notice
for eomo timo. However, as tho old
saying goes "tho bigger tho fake tho
oasior it is to work on the people," and
such was tho case in this instanco. The
packages wero ns a rule all neatly
wrapped in express papor and their
contents wero an unknown quantity.
They ranged in size from a vtry small
uackago which would load ono to be
licvo a piece of jowclry was oniolded
thoro in, to a trunk, and tho bid
ding would lead a casual observer to
bellove that overy pnekngo contained
something valuable. Tho day boforo
wasThanksRiving and somo of tho(o
present had filled themselves so full of
turkey gobbler that tho gobbliug In
stinct provnlled nnd they tried to gob
ble everything; that was offered for
salo. They got all they wanted and wo
venture tho assertion that woro thoro
to be another snlo of unclaimed ex
press matter tomorrow there arc somo
peoplo who wouldn't go. As near an
we can learn the packages contained
mostly patent medicines that were, ac
cording to instructions, guaranteed to
euro all human ills from a bald bead
to an ingrown toe nail, to mako the
weak strong and the strong weak, to
make tho fat slim aid the slim fat, and
some even got remedies for "that tired
feeling." This fatter however camera
Wandy to some who bad tired feeling
when the contents of their purchases
wero arrayed before them. Others
got old clothes, old papors, almanacs,
show bills, patent medicine 'circulars,
patent insldes for newspapers, and in
fact everything that was worthless
and nothing that was valuable Some
of them even say that the express com
pany took everything out that was
valuable and Just sold a lot of old
stuff that didn't amount to anything.
One package especially seemed to catch
the eyo of tho gobblers, in the shapo of
a box and was tlnally.knooked down to
a syndicate When the salo was over
and the box was open it waR found to
contain the niummihed remains of a
poor mother and her child and as she
did not possess a duly signed certificate
of marriage and none of tho purchasing
syndicate caring to f athor it, and ail
being afraid to take it home for fear of
aomosuo trouoioana causingtne ueign
bors to say there was a skeleton in the
closet, it was deoided to sell It baok to
the auctioneer who will probably put
it on exhibition at 60 a look. To tell
tho truth tho sale was very instructive
to some and they reallzo experiuncu is
a dear but good teacher.
ANOTHER RAILROAD SCHEME.
Hastings Men to Furaish the Brains and
the People to Furakh she Mosey.
"Ever since the day following the
late election," says the Hastings Trib
une, "three of Hastings' well known
professional men-have been closeted
in a two-by-four dingy office almost
nightly drawing up plans and specifi
cations for a railroad to be built from
the wheat Holds ot Dakota down
through the western grain country to
the gulf, for the expressfjpurpose of
shipping grain. It is figured by the in
corporators that the right of way will
not cost them a cent as they expect it
to be gladly given by. the farmers as it
will establish a ready market for their
grain and will expedite grain transpor
tation. Oh, the scheme U a great one
and if it is successfully worked the in
corporators will have good sized for
Use In short order. We
woald like to remark right here that
oneof them cluims tobe sb old timer
in the railroad business and says he
baa started to build several roads but
luck always turned against him just
when he felt certain be bad everything
ceanleg bis way."
There is only one thing we have to
say to tho projectors of tho abeye, and
that is stay nway from Rod Cloud. We
remember something about proposed
railroads which comes baok like as
Til dream to haunt the Big Injnn and
which ooourred many moons ago. Iu
thoso days Big Injun was d n fool
and poor Lo hadn't got onto tho vile
sohemes atd as consoquonco tho
Big Injun built (on papor) soveral now
railroads across thlsroservation, which
made the reservation of tho Chief ap
pear liko n spldor-wob on the map and
which today oxist only in tho old files
aud maps sent out by mombors of the
tribe who havo fertile gatdon spots for
salo. Even our warriors havo pulled
from the ground tho last vostlgo of
these great forerunners of loivillzation,
the grado stakes, in a vain effort to
rsiso a more bountiful supply of maize
and at present tbey aro marked only
by a blasted tree or rock. Yea, broth
er even the warmest advocates of those
numerous roads for tho iron horso aro
now gone forever to tho happy hunt
ingground or have gono to join anoth
er tribe. For moons nnd moons in
times gono by tho Big Injun has kept
the courngo and hopes of his warriors
bolstered up by vain projects, or whllo
tho representatives of tho tribe had
gono across tho "father of waters" to
gut tho bin whitu chitfs iu tho far oast
to Bond 114 another Iron horso. And
somo of tho young bucks oven then
had thV nerve to say that thowiso
bray.es fcrc just having a good timu at
the explftso of the tribe. Wo havo
seen thelrlso bravos return from their
trips aljljr sorornl moons bad passed
with news that would swell us up to a
burstlgjpolnt and cause us to indulge
in a ghost dance, and also causo us to
co after tho scalps of some of the
noighhoringirlbes. Since thoso days
tho ways olthe Big Injun has changed
"as has thfbWetf, and now wb live for
stern realities instead of mythical
imaginations; Our only wish is that
our whlto brothers over the Blue will
keop their steam horso road to them
selves ind should it como this way
go around ourreservation. Big Injun
believes wbitfCtnan with Btcam horse
wheofs in httiNamphool. Big Injun
heap, no like-railroad talk (on papor).
Death Alvin S. Mann.
The following splendid tribute to
the memory of our former townsman
Alvin Si Marsh, U taken from tho col
umns of the Pasadena, (Ual.,) Daily
News, nnd will echo in the hearts of
many old frionds here wbero ho had
been a respected citizen for so many
years. His geniality could not sanke
his associates otherwise than frionds
and they will, unito with us in extend-
ing sympathy to tho family.
"Alvin S. Marsh, for the past eight
years a residont of this city, died at
Los Angeles yesterday, Bunday nfter
noon, aged 63 yoars. Ho had boen a
sufferer from throat aud lung trouble
for several years before coming to Cal
ifornia from Nebraska, so that he was
unablo to resumo tho business ef mer
chandising, which ho had followed in
the east with signal success. For two
or tbreo terms bo had Jeen tho post
master at Red Cloud, Nebraska., where
he lust lived prior to his "removal to
Pasadena, and for many.years preocd
ing that period he had feesu u highly
respected citizen of Bestride, in the
same state. He was distinguished for
great geniality of disposition, for re
gard for the comfort and well-being of
others, for kindness of heart that never
failed hia eyen in times of great suf
fering. His death was peaceful, and
his memory will be a precieus legacy
to his family.
The funeral will be under Maaonio
auspices nnd will probably be held at
the residence, 214 South Grand avenue,
Los Angeles, toiserrow. Mr. Marsh
was 'a member f both the Masonic
order and the A. O. U. W but had not
transfer! ed his aBsllations from hie
ledges in Nebraska. Hie family com
prises his wife 'nnd four daughters,
who had gone to Lo Angeles from this
city but about a month ago. The
sympathy of many Pasadena friends
is with them."
"A heart as sturdy as an oak." If
the heart is to be sturdy and the nerves
strong, the blood must berich and
pure. Hood's Sarsaparilla makes the
heart Btuidy becauso it makes good
blood.' It gives strength and courage.

IVORY SOAP PASTE.
In fifteen minutes, with only a cake of Ivory Soap and water,
you can make a better cleansing paste than you can buy.
Ivory Soap Paste will take spots from clothing ; and will clean
carpets, rugs, kid gloves, slippers, patent, enamel, russet leather and
canvas shoes, leather belts, painted wood-work and furniture. The
special value of Ivory Soap in this form arises from the fact that it
can be used with a damp sponge or cloth to cleanse many articles
that cannot be washed because they will not stand the free applica
tion of water.
