Johx W, Carter's Fcsbral. The

Thk ALLKonAKiANs. The Alleghau
lans who are to appear hero on Thurs
day "and Friday evenings present the
tollowiag eight attractions: 1. The
Alleghanlans, whose name along Is a
household word with tho music loving
people of all nations, and whose travels
have extended to all parts of the civilized
globe. 2. The Tyroleso quintette, new
organization, acknowledged par excel
lence in rendering their soul-stirring Ty
rolean song, which In pathos I ir outreach-
es the modern mudu ol the day. Ihelr
style is peculiarly their own. They will
ppear nltfhtly in the costumes of their
country. 8. Ihe Swiss bell players, per
forming German, French and English
airs upon silver bells. The dexterity
wltb which the bells are handled Is as
surprising t.o the eye as the sweet sounds
are to the ear. 4. The ladles' and gents'
silver band ; their Instruments are ot
solid sliver, and manufactured expressly
for the' Alleghanlans In 1874,' prior to
their tour to the Pacific coast. 0. The
great London and New York character
artists, Charlie Phelon und Belle Durgln.
0. Tho only Turkish artist upon the
American tnd English stage, Freno De
Leanhodney. educated at the Vienna Con
servator, will appear Iu his novel end In
teresting solos upon the zither and table
viola. 7, Miss Nanl Bach, prlmadonna,

The Allioha.niansa.vd the Reform
Clib. Through the eflorts of Mr, Dan
Uartman an arrangement has been made
with the Alleghaulans, vocalists, Swiss
bell ringers, etc., by which a fair pro
portion ot the gross receipts of the enter
tainments to be given In this ci'y on
Thursday and Friday nights next will go
Into the treasury of the Temperance Re
form Club. Mr, Hariaan sacrifices his
own Interests In order to advance those
ot the club, and It only remains to be
seen now to what an extent the
club appreciate tils endeavors In
their behalf. Every member ot the
club should buy a ticket, and every
friend of the temperance cause should
patronize these entertainments. The
leading critics ol New York and Boston
pronounce "the entertainments of this
long established and celebrated troupe
ol the highest standard, and of the most
reined of miHicsl exhibitions. In at
tending these entertainments a double
purpose is accomplished, to wit : wit
nessing the greatest musical sensation of
the age, and at the same time contribut
ing to help keep up tho Temperance
Reform Club. Who says there will not.
under the circumstances, be full hotiscB
on both occasions?

Tllti ItKAftOXi WHY
All Sthooia Boy llielr G roeerlea from
Below wo glvo a number ot reasons
why people should buy their groceries
from Pettis & Bird :
1st. Berimre their stocks Is the hirgcs' ,
freshest and choicest In the city.
2nd.Becuuso they sell goods of every
kind cheaper than any other house lu the
3rd. Because they deliver goods more
promptly and lu 1 iter sliapu than nny
other house In the city.
4th. Because they keep the most com
plete stock, and peron, desiring to
purchase Afferent kinds ol goods are not
compelled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got tho goods
they want. -
These we consider substantial reasons
why our readers should buy their goods
