The Sunbet company, a national corporation and probably the second or third largest in the world, spends its mouey Judiciously and its expenditure of more than $70,000 in Long Beach and vicinity within the past eighteen months is cold business, justified by its expert's reports of what the future holds for Long Beach.

FOUR MILES OF BEACH FOULEDBYOIL WASTE Commissioners Asked to Take Action Against San Pedro Oil Concern Responsible According to information obtained this morning a petition is being circulated by local beach front property owners requesting the city commissioners to take immediate action in preventing future repetition of crude oil accumulation on the local beach. The petition urges the city fathers to take the matter up to the proper state authorities for prosecution of the San Pedro oil concern which has been emptying its refuse crude oil from the oil barges just off the Loe Angeles harbor breakwater, and which is later carried along by the currents to be thrown up on the local beach. More than four miles of beach along the local waterfront has been fouled during the past several days, and it is estimated that the damage, while not of a material nature, will reach more than $1,000. Local boaunen allege that several days ago, two large oil barges belonging to the Standard Oil Company station of San Pedro, pumped its refuse oil into the ocean just off the shorelines, near the Los Angeles port. According to the statement of one of the local men, the barges were at work in cleaning out the refuse oil for a period of several hours, a six-inch stream from each barge running during that time. Friday found the heaviest precipitation of crude oil on the local beacn DEPLETED RANKS TO BE FILLED BY RECRUITS (U. P. Leased Wire to Telegram) EAGLE PASS, Tex., July 8.

The Second Missouri infantry has officially adopted the famous houn' dog song as the battle hymn of the regiment To make it an illustrated song, theyve acquired the mournfullest, long-eardest, Missourlest hound ever seen In these parts as a mascot She Want May How did you happen -to miss your train 7 Blanche Oh, the horrid old thing was right on tlmel Judge front, the breakers casting a heavy string of the dirty material on the sands. Numerous reports of spoiled cloth-, ing were made along the beach, and realizing that Long Beach is receiving a black eye in the disorderly condition which cannot be helped by the city authorities, beach property owners are urging state prosecution of the concerns directly responsible for the fouling of the beach. The casting oil on the ocean within a distance of three miles of the shorelines, is a statutory offense under the state fish and game laws, and punishable by a heavy fine. It is stated that the concern alleged to have cast off the crude oil which fouls the local beach on the water, dumps its barges regularly when the sea water, seeping through the oil barges, spoils a large amount of the product. As the crude oil presses down the water, it becomes necessary that the barge be cleaned off wen there is hut a small amount of the material on the barge. Allegations are that the oil concerns wishing to. save the expense and time of bringing their oil barges out of the three-mile limit, free the refuse oil close to the shore. The prevailing currents along the local coast run from southwest to northeast, in this way carrying the oil into the breaker lines along the local front FURNITURE IS NOW; BEING PAINTED Peasant Styles Being AD the Rage, Get Out Some Castoff Pieces and TreatThem to a New Coat of Paint, Because it is of humble name do not imagine that painted furniture Is always cheap. Manufacturers of some of our finest furniture turn opt a greater number of peasant styles than of almost any other kind, and they go their way into very fine homes. Even Marls Antoinette liked to play at being a shepherdess when It suited her fancy to drop the dignities of royalty. Bo why should not my lady of fashion nowadays, when she files to the country for a relaxation of social duties, furnish at least one bedroom In the picturesque manner of the French or Flemish, Dutch or Italian peasant! And as for the rest of us, who can neither afford to pay for the finest ot quality and workmanship plus the smartest of smart ideas in painted summer furnishings nor yet to Invest our money In cheap furniture that la cheaply built In imitation of the better thing, what shall we do about It? Why, do for ourselves and by ourselves If needs be and as best we can wbat a group of decorators are doing for a steadily growing cllentlele, who bring to them all sorts and conditions of old and ngly pieces of furniture to be given a new lease of life with the aid of a few car-penter's tools and a paint box. In one of these remodeling shops was recently seen a charming bedroom set In a dark yet rather brilliant French bine, touched up here and there with a hit of old gold, and still further enriched with an oval of lighter ground on which was painted a basket of old fashioned flowers, inset on the front of the bureau, the foot and bead boards of the bed, the chair backs and the center top of the table. The general style of the pieces was colonial The charm of them was not alone the charm of ravishing color, hut their simplicity. A photograph showed the transformation of this set Every piece had been of a different kind or color of wood and every one had belonged to that ake of horrors which we speak of in whispers as Victorian- With scrap. Ing and pruning and trimming until they were all reduced to unfinished wood and shorn of their Jigsaw ornaments and then with coat after coat of paint the miracle had been worked. It Is not to be thought for a moment that any woman cau from her attic bring discarded beds and chairs and things and then with paint and patience perform like miracles at home or transform hideous pieces of yellow oak end dismal black walnut furniture Into pieces as beautiful as those Just described, for that takes perfected art and experience. But any woman can who wOl scrape and sandpaper tho bad finish off of any piece of furniture whose possibilities she sees, have a local carpenter bereave it of absurd ornaments, If she cannot also attend to this part of the work herself, and turn out from an improvised workshop in basement or attic really wonderful transformation by the aid of paint and good taste.
