The Horticultural Pavilion has
now reached a gratifying state of
forwardness. Its dimensions are
on a grand scale, lacking only
three paces of tho length of the
Cathedral from the entrance to the
chancel and being very nearly as
wide. The ground floor alone will
aQ'ord ample space for au exhibi
tion of mammoth proportions. Tho
gallery is a massive structure, run
ning around the entire building,
and supported on the inside by
heavy pillars of wood. We are in
formed by architects that it is
thoroughly secure. We are glad to
note that the acoustic properties of
the Pavilion are of exceptional
thoroughness. This will enhance
the line vocal and instrumental
music which will diversify the ex
ercises of ths Fair. The people of
Los Augeles rightfully take a pride
In this creation of their own pub
lic spirit. It was largely visited
last Sunday, and we suggest that
Sunday next would be a «ood day
for an inspection of the edifice, in
force, by our people. To those
straugers who would like to take a
comprehensive look over the Los

they cannot get a better ooigne of
vantage than that presented from

Tbe premium buggy is at last here
aud will boexbibited in tbe window
of tbe Dollar Store this morning.
The style is quite different from
what we described at first as tbe
buggy in prospect, but it is none
the less elegant and expensive.
The runuing gear and bed are fin
ished in dark colors, ornamentally
lined and fitted with silver-plated
ornaments. The upholstering is in
brown tlguied satin. Tbe handle
is reversible, aud tbe seat slides
backward and forward, ad
mitting of n long bed, so
that a child occupying it
may lie down at full length. The
top is of canopy style, and adjust
able. Ou either side of the
bed there are miniature .-bin-lights
in ornamental design, which add
quite a natty appearance to the rig.
The buggy cent ributed by Mr. Fred
Gilmoreasa second prize will be
exhibited iv the wi.idow of Preuss
& Schumacher's drug store.
Go not to tbe ant but to tbe spi

But the question with us is, how
doth tbe spider throw his web
across the sidewalk? Let some
learned entomologist answer. But

In the examination of witness
Burdlck before Special Postal
Agent Sharp, yesterday, a certain
letter writ teu to tbe Department,
on the back of which Postmaster
Duukelberger bad given his views
In regard to the matter treated of
therein, was the subject iv band.
Atone stage of the examination
Col. Duukelberger spoke up and
said, "But I did uot fully endorse
the contents of that letter," or
something to that effect. "It
would have been better for you,
then," remarked Mr. Sharp "to
have written your letter on another
piece of paper."
The investigation which is being
carried ou by Special Agent Sharp
yesterday related mainly to the
lease of tbe new post office. Tbe
principal witness examined was
Mr. Horace Burdick, Secretary of
the building committee of tbe Odd
Fellows. The inquiry was restrict
ed to the terms of the lease, to cer
tain representations made to the
Pestofflce Department and to the
negotiations which preceded It.

The prospecting fever is over to
a great extent aud the owuers of
claims are either working their lo
cations or making arrangements aa
best they can to have them worked
by others. During tbe past two
weeks there have been many con
tract! let to work locations, enough
to develop the same, for au interest
in the claims. The plan is a good
oue for many of tbe claimants are
too poor to work themselves. We
may look forward to new and rich
developments during the next
Tire developments In the princi
pal mines are such as would satisfy
tbe most ambitious miner. Taylor
& Co. are at present sacking ore
tbat is richer than any ever before
shipped from this district. Tbe
pay streak is fourteen inches thick.
There is a report current iv the
valley tbat this mine has run out,
and I will just say that there is no
truth iv the report. There are hut
lew persons in tbe valley who
know enything about these mlues,
and uuleas a person spends lots of
time and a great deal of labor, be
will go away with only a knowl
edge of what is open to inspection
and of easy access. What is known
as tbe Taylor or Florentine mine
is only a spur from the Gray back
ledge, and though it is not large, it
is rich. Mr. Flanagan has bad
considerable work done on his lo
cation aud with the best results.
If there is anyone who doubts the
reports in tbe Timet, let them
come to this place and look for
themselvee. Tbey can do ibe
country more good by doing so, aud
then report as they tlnd it, than to
stay away and induce others to
keep away who might help develop

This GREAT SILVER GIFT SALE will be inaugurated on
MONDAY, SEPT. 30, 1878 v .
And each purchaser to the amount of $2 50 will receive a bona fide FINE SILVER
GIFT of one of the above-named articles. The SILVER GIFTS will be open for
inspection prior to the sale on Monday, September 30th, and we pledge ourselves to
carry out this programme in this entirety, and we need only add that the distribution
of these GIFTS will be made in an impartial manner and in equity—the larger the
purchase the more valuable the Gifts.
In conclusion we would say that faith will be kept with the public and the above
statement carried out in all its bearings. We are perfectly aware that these high
priced stores will sneer at this Silver Gift Sale of ours, and ask the question, "How
can they do it?" That is our business; we paid for our experience, and we have
no doubt that these high-priced stores will pay through the nose for theirs. Suffice it
to say that we paid for the SILVER. We shall at all times conduct our business as
we see fit, irrespective of all outsiders. The simple fact is, the people want cheap
goods, and we are determined to let the people have cheap goods at the GREAT.
