The automobile driver who run Into and killer] an aged lady In LOH Angeles during Elk wreck has been captured and brought to J.OH Angeles, where ho •will bo fried on the ehargo of manslaughter. \Vhilo It, IH necessary t.o rnakr; an example of Homo of those reckless, Inhuman automobllistH, It seems a pity that In Mils case, when public otilnlon has been rained t.o Hiioh a high state of Indignation, t.ho offender happens t.o be a poor driver Instead of an owner. What, dlngtiKf.H t.ho public In eases •whore an auto IH driven ovor or kills a person IB that., alrnoBt. Invariably, t.ho autolHt. turriB on full speed and "heat.B it" when an accident, happens, Instead of rendering what, assistance he could. The number of easoH where t.hlB Bame thing is done would BiiggoHt, that the inot.orlHt.H must have an unwritten rule that thlB IB the course to pursue. Recently, a rich owner waB given a stiff term on the chain gang after doing the same thing when colliding •with a man who alighted from a street car In front of a speeding automobile. Automobiles, everywhere, are allowed to run at too high a speed. Through any town they may be Henri at any hour going at speeds up to thirty miles an hour. Ten miles an hour Is as fast as an auto can be run with any degree of safety on any street where there are people on foot. An automobile Is a heavy machine and the control of the operator Is restricted In ratio to its Hpced. You can toll, when you see an electric car .corning, where It IB going to go—you cannot an auto; one moment you notice ono which you think you are entirely safe from, and looking up a second afterwards, It has switched ItH course and IB almost on top of you. Automoblllsls have been allowed to run rampant long enough. Public opinion and a few stiff Jail sentences will make an Impression. MOVING PICTURES FROM HEATHEN LANDS. A Remarkable Exhibition at the Christian Church, August 5. The gonliiH of EdiKou has nl last boon brought under (rilnile to the world-wide missionary enterprise. The Christian Church of this place IK to have a striking exhibition of heal hen life through Hie medium of moving pictures. These moving picture dims have boon socurod by tho Korolgn Christian Missionary Hoclol.y and will be shown on the above dale In connection with a lecture mi "Strange People of Many Lands." Two yours ago a deputation was sent around Ihc world to secure those pictures. Theso men travelled In Africa, India, China, and .lapau. They .secured the moving pictures under grcnl dlllicull ies. One of the scenes is Ilia! of Hie awful sacrifices in the temple of Kail at Calcutta, India. It was necessary for the man taking the pictures to bribe the priests and then after netting access to the Ki'oat heathen temple ho was obliged to secrete himself behind the pihirs of the temple dnriiif, the period of Haerlflco. The iiKivInu pictures hnnn the customs ami the awful need of these far away lands before the \ery eyes of tin 1 people. |(ev. .1. \V. Ihmin of Toklo. .Japan, will be in charge. Births.

Naturally he dopes j victory for himself on the assumption that he ban known Miller for a long time and always found him easy. It's too bad for baseball that there are not. more like Clark. lOvery team In the league !s strengthening up. The daubers have signed Owens, one of the crack In- flelderH of amateur baseball. The Outfitters have added extra force to their pitching staff, and the Dlrectolors have signed .foe Duart.e, who used t.o be a star on the Covina Diamond in the old days. From now on the race for the pennant, will be contested. The f'alms are confident of their ability t.o romp away with the rag, while the other teams that started out on tho slope have not lost heart, but will come in with a strong bid for honors. Of course, we don't have any ideas of our own about Covlria's chances. Yes, no? Covina stands at the head of the batting column with an average of .270; the Palms are next with .270. Following Is a list of appellations which will henceforth be used by all real baseball fans when speaking of the teams which compose the Interurban league: Palms—lieari Growers. We wonder If they are stringing us. Colegrove—Orphans. Hut they play ball as though It had been In the family for generations. Directories—Advertisers. If they advertise the same way they played that last game of ball, Los Angeles merchants wil have to employ more help. Covina Snn Felice—Orange Pickers. We wonder if this bunch did not gather n few lemons at the same time to hand to other teams? Uacyclos—Cyclers. They'ra geared up, anyway. Wells Fargos- Baggage Smashers. Hhould be ball smashers. lOatHtern Outfitters--Cripples. This applies to t.ho number of men who have helped out Mueller, not to the condition of the players. F'ariflini; PiiintK--Daubers. We hope they'll paint something besides goose eggs. Services In the Church of the Holy Trinity, eighth Sunday after Trinity: Holy Communion, 7:30 a.m. .Morning Prayer, 11 a. m. fn the ahsenee of Rev.

Odd Death Certificates. ratfM of death nre not doru- nvnts where ono usually seeks for humor, but (hero i« frecjuvnUy to !><• foiled in them mm-h of the unconscious variety. Here, for Instance, Is how tho cause of death Is stated In the case of a laborer: "I>lcd from injuries received through a bull accidentally kneeling on his chest." The fonaldernHon shown for the feelings of the bull Is a fine touch and suggests grave questions on the moral responsibility of the lower animals. Again, a man Is stated to hnve "died from the effects of Injuries received after being run over by a railway trnln In motion owing to a misunderstanding between deceased and an engine driver."

In Cuba the best, tobacco comes from one strip of bind only, the slopes of a certain river, and even there a north wind may niin the crop. Tobacco is the most sensitive plant we know of. The smallest thing affects its flavor. Plant, Virginia tobacco In Germany, and the result Is a better tobacco, l.<ut It !H German tobacco, not Virginian.
