On being shown through the prettily decorated rooms they clapped their little hands in de light and evinced such genuine plea sure for the entertainment proided for them that one of the employees who had worked very hard for its suc cess, exclaimed : "This demonstration on the part of these little children alone repays me fcr all the labor ex pended." At a later hour the older lads and lasses, becomingly - dressed in their neat uniforms marched in and spent- the evening in a most enjoyable man ner, lne employees vied with each other in providing entertainment for the children.

The city council met last Friday evening for the purpose of considering the advisability of celebrating the Fourth of July and after some dis cussion it was decided to leave the matter in the hands of the Fire depart ment. The council met again Monday evening to consider bids for publishing the ordinancesrof the city, but the bids submitted were not satisfactoy aud uo action was taken. We might remark, parenthetically,thatpostingordinances is a very ancient way of placing them before the public. If a satisfactory price for publishing them could be agreed upon much more satisfaction would, ensue. The ordinances could then be pasted in the ordinance book and those who wished to refer to tbem would not be compelled to solicit the services of an adept in Egyptian hieroglyphics to decipher them. Deafness Cannot be Cared. by loal applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of tiie ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that ia by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube When this tube gets, inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the re sult, and unless .the inflammation can bo taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that can not be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for cir culars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

A large number of the firemen met Monday evening subject to call for the purpose of taking preliminary steps to befittingly celebrate tho anniversary of tho nation's birth. In tho absence of any presiding olhoers Mayor J. H. Sbanssey called the meeting to order and in an enthusiatio manner added fuel to the patriotic, flame. After the object of the meeting had been stated, Thos Molloy was chosen to fill the chair, and right worth did ho per form his task. A few short patriotic speeches was made relative to the ad visability of celebrating tho day dearest to all American hearts. Liberal ap plause greeting the various speakers and suggestions which were made. The old spirit of '76 was revived and it was unanimously agreed to celebrate on the Fourth. A general committee on arrangement consisting of J. M. Clark, T. M. Day, T. B. Beli, E, H Pitcher, W. E. Marvin, Albert Behan, James P. Buck, W. H. Shoroy, A. Joe Heyl, Thos Molloy, A. T. Pancrazi, B. L. Meeden, L. J. Eamirez, Frank gtanley and D. E. McCormick, was appointed. A sub-committee of this committee was appointed to ask and solicit a number of citizen to act in conjunction with the firemen. The committee of fifteen met again last night and it was unanimously decided to hold the picnic and celebra tion at- the quartermaster's grounds. wb-committees were appointed on literary and music, dance, sports grounds and refreshments and finance. and the various committee are now busy with their several duties. W.E.Ma'vin is chairman of the fin ance committee and a number ot business men will be asked to act with him on that committee. Anumberof citizen will be asked and invited to attend the meetings of, and act in conjunction with, the general com mittee on arrangements.

The hearty corporation of the citizens and business men i3 solicited by tho firemen to make this day one to bo long remembered. as follows ; It ia proper for tud eiate to regulate uiarriaoa. Undoubtedly H ia immoral and against publio palioy that a divorced person should ba pe?mUted to can traot a legal marriage pending the right of appeal and while it ia yet un certain what the final judgment will be. Tlip. purpose of the section ( 61 of the Civil Code) was to put a stop to marriages tvithin the period of an appeal from the decree of divorce. The status of unmarried persons is controlled by other statutes. Not all unmarried persons may legally .marry. In this jurisdiction both parties lo a divorce proceeding, after decree, are for the full period of a year therefrom disabled from marrying any other persons than themselves. Section 61 contains wards of nullity, and theso cannot bo avoided by merely invoking anothor jurisdiction for that purpose. The law of domicile is invoked and the law of domicile controls. No other jurisdiction can relieve against it. The plajntiff possessed no legal ca pacity to marry any person save her divorced and then living husband.

Marriage Bureau in I'erih Judge Beleher of San Francisco has handed down a decision which makes illegal those marriages which ' take place outside of the state of California to escape the California divorce laws. The Yuma marriage bureau has done much for Californiii'sbenigh ted couples but its work is apt to yet be undone Judge Belcher's decision,wherein he declares such marriages to be illegal, was called out by tho case of Abbie Epse Wood against the estate of Joseph M. Wood to recover $10,000, tho amount specified as the consideration in an ante-nuptfal contract in which she agreed to allow Wood to dp as he pleased with his property aftei their marriage. This alleged marriage took place at Eeno five months after she had been divorced from Eobert E. Smith. Judge Belcher refused to allow her claim against the estate, because ho held that the Eeno affair was not a legal marriage and that tho ante nuptial agreement had not been put in force by a marriage. The vital points of ihe decision are An exceedingly pleasant surprise and farewell party was tendered Miss Helen Jenkins, (teacher in the Fort Yuma Indian Training school) Friday eve, the eve of her departure for Los Angeles. The party was an in formal one given by her friends, Misses Willis and Thomas. The evening wa3 pleasantly spent in music, fortune telling and aocial con verse. Delicate refreshments of sher bit cake, candy and huts wore served and at a late hour the guests departed. Those present were: Supt. aud Mrs. Spear, Misses Willis, Thomas, Walsh, Beal, Bragg-, Mary and Maud and Agatha Spear, Mrs. Millican; Messrs. Vaughan, Stratton, Wittmg ton, Morgan and Eiley. They Smell Oil. According to a coast paper Los An geles people are beginning to ask about the prospects on .the Colorado desert, in which section a number of San Diego people are preparing to be gin operations in the fall. It is hardly probably that any one will contemplate risking their lives on that desrfc dur ing the summer months while hunting for oil, but there is a possibility that next fall may see some developments in that section of the country. It is reported in San Diego that certain Los Angeles men are already interested in oil prospects on the desert, which is altogether probable, as Los Angeles citizens are pretty numerous in every portion of the state were there is a smell of oil.

A rich man's statement that he in tends to devote almost his entire for tune to charitable works has aroused much discussion. This is because it will accomplish much good. It is a praiseworthy endeavor, but there are many other agencies which accom plish just as much good. Take Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters for instance the great American remedy. For fifty years it has curod constipation dyspepsia and all the ills which arise trom weak digestion. This medicine will keep the stomach in good shape and the bowel regular. It is a wonder ful restorative tonicand health builder. It is also a preventive for malaria' fever and ague. Ask for it, and insist upon having it.
