not penetrate the skull, though he was
stunned. In his home nearby were his
wife and their seven children, and
these rushed to the spot and took
Goodwin home. - A doctor was sent for
and while he was extracting the bullet
Goodwin called for his wife and said he
desired to cut his throat and end his
life. He will recover, and will proba
by be sent to the institution.

The Journal is indebted to Mr. Bryan
Gardner, formerly well known in New

the earthquake. One paper ia the Long
Beach Press,- published at Mr. Gard
ner's home town, and the other is the
Los Angeles-Record. The former paper
is loyal to its city and from the brief
but very significant statement that
occupies the most prominent part of
the paper which reads thus: "1900 the
population was 2252; 1006 is 17,000; 1910
will be 50.000 " The statement tells
of phenomenal growth. The paper is
very optimistic in regard to the results
of the great earthquake and fire and
urges fce people there to lose no time
nor heart in making California tlie
wonder of the world. Tile Loa Ar.j'eUs
