THE LADIES' BENEVOLENT SOCIETY
Ai.mul Etpcit of its Doings Frep.md ly th*
To the officers and members of the
Ladies' Benevolent Society of Los
The year for which I have had
the honor to serve you as Presided
ia now expired, and it heoorues u<\
pleasant duty to report to you, iv a
general way, the results of our
labors, the condition of our Socie
ty, financially, and Its prospects for
the coming year. The Secretary
will furnish you with a report
showing the receipts aud expeudi
tures for the year, in detail, with
the vouchers for each dollar spent
in relieving the unfortunate, and
Ibope that, beyond tbe mere ex
penditure of money, our sympathy
and good words of eucouragemcnt
extended to the needy have beeu
productive of much additional
From this report of iho Secretary
It will be seen that the Society has
expended, in money, during the
year, $750.18, besides distributing
large quantities of clothing, food,
furniture and bedding, which have
been donated to the Society nnd
supplied to the poor. All of this
baa been given iv small amounts
and has enabled the recipients to
get along until returniug health or
offered opportunities have enabled
teem to take care of themselves.
At your semi-annual meeting
tha by-lawa of the Society were so
amended as to authorize the Presi
dent to draw at any one occasion
an amount not to exceed tweoty
dollars; also making it the duty of
two members of tbe Board of Direc
tors to audit tbe accounts of the
Secretary. Mrs. Bacon, your wor
thy Vice-President, and myself,
have performed this duty and find
the accounts and books of the Sec
retary kept in a thoroughly system
atic manner, and that the accounts
and voucher, correspond. Mrs.
Gould, your Secretary, is entitled
to much credit and I lie hearty
thanks of your Society for the ad
mirable way in which she has dis
charged the duties that have de
volved upon her.
During the year now closed we
have been prospered, and a kind
Providence lias c" ordered the lines
of our community that no great
amouut of destitution bus pre
vailed, aud I think the Society has
fully met aud fairly discharged I lie
really worthy calls upm it Dur
ing the year we have relieved over
eighty families. There have been,
iv some canes, applications that
your committee ami y/fit have
thought were not ab-u:u'> ly casea
of necessity, and other unworthy
objects, but these have be, v few,
and we trust our discrimination has
met your approval, in other cases
it is possible that we may have
given when tlie objects of our aid
would have gotten along without
us. But lv all esses wo have used
our best judgment, and if we have
erred.it has always boon 0:1 the
aide of charity.
In addition to the amount oo
hand nt the beginning of the year,
which was $637.72, we received
from the proceeds nt our Founli-of-
July entertainment S2-10, clear i f
expenses, and tills, with th - dona
tions aril lees for membership, bus
enabled ub to meet tlie many de
mands upon us, and we now close
tbe year with a cash balance of
$629 1)7, as per report of your Treas
We have also completed our in

which were had under my prede
cessor, and we nre now au incor
Through uic efforts of our Blur,!,
and with the kind assistance or the
honorable representatives in the

and Uolloway, who aveeiitilhd to
our thanks lor their hearty co
operation and persistent efforts in
our behalf, our Society has been
tlie recipient from the State of $1,-
COO This will be drawn lv install

and $500 the next, and will he a
welocuie addition to our resources.
I desire to lake this opportunity
to thank the Board and the
aeveral committees for (lie assist

Let us nil work together In the

that the community will gladly

properly used, and Unit we carr.i

With which I have been treated

tions,! nnw gladly resign lhe duties
of the office, and am ready to lake

A Business that is Overdone.
The newspaper business ban for
several yeais been largely oveidone
la Southern California, wiih tlie
usual oouseqoeueea to enterprising
publish'twhose ambition exceeds
their judgment. In places wliere
■ siuglo well-manage:! weekly
would have been adequate to the
patronage of the community, two
or three dailies have been dragging
along a wretcbcdexlstei.ee. Late
ly the business lias been gradually
accommodating Itself toa common
twnse standard. In San Ilrriiardiuo
the two dailies have been reduced
to once a week publications. In
Anaheim the excellent daily Is now
■ still more excellent" semi
weekly. In Los Angeles the
Republican, which used to appear
daily, pro-pels os a weekly. The
example of the Republican lv.\s
now beeu followed by the Star.
Commenting upon this change, tlie
Express observes that one morn
ing aud one evening paper, well
conducted, will answer every re
quirement for supplying the'iocal
and foreign news to the eitiz :ns of
liOj Angeles, and that, by the prin
ciple of the survival of Ihefit test, two
•uch papers remain tbe sole eccu
pantsofthe field. There is uo doubt
that by the withdrawal of needless
competion tbe publishers of these
two journal.-: will be enabled
to give their respective read
am a still better news
paper than before. The Union,
during the last ten years, has wit
nessed the birth aue death of of nu
merous newspaper.! in Southern
California. Many of those journals
have been conducted with consid
erable ability, and their fouuders
havo uudoubtedly started with
high hopes of the future. But the
end could be foreseen from the
very beginning. Under the most
favorable conditions, the newspa
per business is oue iv which fair
rewards for industry ond enter
prise are tlie exception. As a rule,
journalism is tho most poorly
compensated of all callings,
while its demands aro the most ex
acting. Unwearying patience, in
cessant toil, unflinching enterprtse
and yeais of time are required to
place a newspaper upon a payiug
basis. Oueof the most experienced
journalists on the Pd'jilli Coast,
and one of the few succes-f il ones,
said to tho writer some years ago:
"When a newspaper lias been pub
lished right along, every day, for
ten years, it has souio chance of
staying, and about that timo it
ought to begin to pay."— San Diego

AN OPEN LETTER—IT SPEAKS
Rockpokt, Mass., April 2, 1677.
Mb. Editou:—Having read in j our pa
per reports of tbe remarkable cures of ca
tarrh. 1 am induced lo leli " what 1 know
about catarrh," und I fancy the "snuff"
and "Inhaling tube" makers (mere dol
lar grabbers) would be glad If ttiey could
emblazon a similar cure lv the papeis.
For *-j years 1 sullered with catarrh. The
nasal passages became completely closed,
"SuulJ," "dust," "ashes,*' "luhallng
tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work,
though at intervals I would suit! up the
so'Oailed cat inh snufl, until 1 became a
valuable tester for such medicines. 1
gradually grew worse, aud 113 one can
know how much 1 buffered or what a
miserable beiug I was. My head ached
over my eyes until 1 was fouhned to my
bed ior many successive days, buffering
the most intense pain, wnicn at ono time
lasted continuously for 106 hours. All
sense oi smell and taste go jo, sight and
hearing impaired, body shrunken
anu weakened nervous system snat
tered and constitution broken, and 1 was
hawking uud spitting seveu-eightus of the
time. 1 prayed lor death to relieve me oi
my suffering. A favorable notice in your
paper ot Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy in
duced me to purchuse a package and use
It wiih Dr. Pierces Nasal Douche, which
applies tho remedy by hydrostatic pres
sure, tho only way compatible with com
mon sense. Well, Mr. Editor, It did not
cure me iv three-iourtbs of a second, nor
in one hour or mouth, but iv less thaa
eight minutes 1 was relieved, nnd in
three months entirely cured, and have
remained so over sixteen mouths. While
using the Catarrh remedy, 1 used Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery to pa*
my my blood and strengthen my stom
ach. 1 also kept my liver active and
bowels regular by tbe use of his Pleasant
Purgative Pellets, if my experience will
induce other sufferers to seek the same
means oi relief, this letter will have an
swered its purpose.
