EIGHTY SOLDIERS SURROUNDED BY HOSTILE SAVAGES. Big Foot's Band Did Not Surrender as Re ported—Troops Pursuing Them—The Trouble Not Yet Ended. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Dec. 24.—A special from Dickinson, N. D., says: Captain Foun tain's detachment of the Eighth cavalry, about eighty men, is surrounded by about 500 Indians in the cave hills, eighty miles south of Dickinson, in one of the worst points of the Had lands. Fountain's cavalry has been making forced marches for the past ten days, and gaining rapidly on Sitting Bull's band, who has been reinforced with Short Bull's nnd kicking Bear's bands of 400. Reinforcements are hurrying for ward. Washington, Dec. 24.— The report re ceived yesterday that Dig Foot, with his followers, including some of the Sitting Bull fugitives, had surrendered to Co). Sumner, is contradicted tonight in a dispatch received by General Schogeld from General Miles." Miles states that they did not' surrender as they prom ised, but managed to escape." Troops are in active pursuit. Omaha, Dec. 24. —A dispatch from Pine Hidge says a squad of Indian scouts has been sent after four troops of the Ninth cavalry, to assist in the move ment against the escaped hostiles.

Seven friendly Indians, just returned from the Bad Lands, report that Short Bull's band refuses to come in, and de fies the troops. Guthrie, O. T., Dec. 24.—White Cloud, Hatch-E-S.hu and Punning Bear were jo the city today to invite s6»s irfciidH and their legal advisers to meet them nine miles east of the city to par ticipate in a ghost dance, to begin to morrow. The lowas are entertaining many Indians from neighboring tribes. There are also representatives from the Oheyennes, Arapahoes, CreeksJ and two messengers from the Sioux. The white visitors will do all in their power to allay as far as possible the Messiah craze. All the Indians about here are friendly and peaceable. ItLTTKRWOUTH IS H API* V. Everything About the World's Fair 1b Booming. Washington, Dec. 24. —Representa- tive Butterwortb, secretary of the World's Columbian exposition, is in a very happy frame tonight, now that the proclamation has been issued. .Speaking to an Associ ated Press representative, Butterwortb said everything was booming, and the exposition would be one of the greatest ever held in the history of the world. Copies of the proclamation will be de livered to representatives of the foreign nations, accompanied with a state ment containing all the informa tion necessary for a complete understanding of the regulations con cerning the fair. The news from Lon don and I'aris, he said, was very en couraging. Tbe directory had agents in Japan and China, and in fact were reaching out to the ends of the earth. Never before, so far as his knowledge extended, had such an 'ex tensive preparation and such a large sum of money been raised at the incep tion of an enterprise, as in the present case, by tbe people o! Chicago. Celebrated His Birthday, San Francisco, Dec. 24.— Charles W. Lemperle, a German bootmaker, today celebrated his 00th birthday by getting drunk. While in that condition he met and quarreled with J. Mitchell, an Irish bootcriniper, over three pairs of boots he accused him of spoiling. There were no witnesses to the scene that followed. Ijemperle says Mitchell struck and at tempted to choke him, whereupon he shot Mitchell in the head, blowing his brains out. Lemperle was arrested. He has a wife and two grown children. Wound Up Its Ali'alrs. Savannah, Ga., Dec. 24.—The Savan nah Fire and Marine Insurance company wound up its affairs today. The com pany was oraranized in 1887, with a cash capital of $200,000. Threatened adverse legislation was the principal cause of closing up business. A MAMMOTH HOG. The Splendid Display Made at the Los Angeles Market. A terribly obese hog is a beautiful sight to see, when it is in full dress for the table. One that weighs 750 pounds reposes on the hooks of the Los Angeles market, on tbe corner of First and Main streets, kept by Julius Hauser. This hog is surrounded by the most tempting carcasses of beef and mutton and veal, and other porkers, but it looms up as one of the striking productions of this climate, which has on a few occcasions been spoken of as glorious. To any lover of flesh pots the sight is inspiring; this mammoth pig.environed by all that is appetizing in the way of eatable flesh, is calculated to make each beholder wish he had tbe stomachic capacity of Gar gantua. Mr. Hauser has in cold fact, and in cold storage, a display of meats which cannot be excelled, and which bear strong testimony to the ability of Southern California to cater to the most exacting of good livers.. The Justice Market. In another column appeals the an nouncement of the Justice Meat Market, First and Los Angeles streets. This market is one of the neatest In the city, and the price lis/, shows a very material reduction. It will pay to read the ad vertiseu ent of the Justice Market.

Powder A&SOULmMt PURE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1890. CHRISTMAS ON THE STAGE. A Chat With Emma Abbott, and Her Company's Christmas. "You can't come in, for I'm just changing all my clothes; but I'll shake hands with you, and if you can wait three minutes, I want to see you ;" and a round bare arm, with a taper hand bearing on it the famous mascot birth mark, a beautiful shoulder and a smiling face, was all of Emma Abbott that the Herald reporter who called at her dressing-room at the matinee yesterday, could see. In the promised three min utes, however, she came sailing out into the passage way back of the scenery, clad in that wonderful Worth "surprise" robe of yellow and silk gold thread. "Two years since I saw you last, is it? Doesn't seem so long, does it. Of course I'm glad to be back in Los Angeles. There's no taffy about that either, for it always does me good to breathe this de licious air. Ah, I've worked hard since I saw you. Had all these gowns made in Paris, and studied between times. Audran is writing me a new opera, you know. I just got the scenic plot re cently, and I think it will go. Yes, this is a gorgeous gown, but 1 don't think there is anything too good for me to wear before an American audience. I don't care for such things much. A ten cent calico would suit me just as well, but I believe in doing everything I can to please the public, and they do like nice gowns. There's my call, goodbye," and Arline swept on the stage in all her glory. As the curtain fell on the headsman, in the red light and to slow music, hold ing the axe over the lovely neck of poor Anne Boleyn, at the Los Angeles theater last night, the axe was thrown into the wings, Anne Boleyn smiled at every body and everybody smiled at her, anil, "merry Christmas!" rang through the house. As soon as the audience bad got out, the curtain was rung up and alter put ting'6n their customary t tbe Abbott company, numbering; Over sixty persons, took possession of the theater. A table extending clear across the stage was loaded with mysterious packages, and Mr. Pruette, the baritone of the company, and "Billy" McCormick, the stage manager, commenced distributing ihe presents, of which Santa Claus had provided several hundred. Everybody got something. Miss Abbott toon ap peared, and was kissed, and hugged and wished merry Christmas by everybody. After the gilts were distributed the as sembly was invited on the stage and at tacked the salads, cakes and beer, which were provided in abundance. Miss Ab bott, though she bad sung for six hours, was the liveliest on the stage; as she expressed it, she was ''as fresh aa a daisy," and she added greatly to the gayety which pre vailed. It was as lolly a Christmas as one can imagine. Everybody felt happy, and everybody felt kindly to wards everybody else. No family gath ering could have evidenced better feel ing or mote affection than was seen on this occasion. HE WAS ASHAMED To Ask Again, bnt His Frank Letter Got It for Him. A few months ago one of the unfortunate In mates in the San Francisco Almshouse was Inspired by the sensational statements in the newspapers with the belief that Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla would help him. But without money, how to get lt was the question. Finally he wrote to the Edwin W. Joy Co., appealing to their generosity, and it was not unheeded, the coveted preparation being sent by the next parcel delivery. Its effect is best told in a sub sequent letter, from which we quote the follow ing:— "I suppose you know me by this writing, and my circumstances and condition. Although I am improving, I ask of your generosity for an other bottle of your Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla. The action of Its laxative properties is perfec tion itself. It has so thoroughly regulated my system that my catarrh, rheumatism, consti pation, and headaches are all better. I fee! ashamed to ask in this way, but what shall I do? I thought I might not need anymore, but I am now so anxious to keep it up; but you see how it is." It was sent, and he can get more if he needs it THE PALACE MARKET. A Fine Display of Prime Beef. At the Palace meat market, oil the corner of Spring and Third streets, is to be seen an excellent display of beef, pork, spring iamb, ham, bacon, etc. The proprietor, Charles Gassen, has taken special pains to place before bis many customers some of the very bent eoi-nfed beef that ever hung on a hook. Then there is a fine display of sucking pigs, and spring lamb which to look at gives a person an appetite. Mr. Gassen has been in the business for many years in l.os Angeles. Being a wholesale and re tail dealer, be kills his own beef, so that those dealing with Mr. Gassen are sure of receiving the very best the market a fiords. Christmas Fare in Los Angeles. Few people are aware of the table delicacies obtainable for one's Christ mas dinner in Los Angeles. Any one who cares to take a look at the show window of Illich's restaurant this morn ing will find there, in addition to the traditional turkeys and fowls of all grades, artichokes, green pens, green com, fresh tomatoes, string beans, celery, strawberries, and everything known to the table of tbe rich in the month of June in tbe east. Of course, oranges, grapes and other fruits are to be found at all our fruit stands, and these we do not particularize. All these vegetables are grown in the open air, and figure daily on the midwinter tables of our citizens. There is probably no place in the world where as large a variety awaits the palate of the lover oi good cheer as in Los Angeles.

THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF TWO WELL-KNOWN YOUNG- MEN. A Good-Natured Hackman Takes Them Heme—A Result That Astonished All Parties Concerned. "It was the rummest go I ever expe rienced," said a well-known hackman to a Hekald reporter yesterday. "What was it?" "It was like this," he answered. "Last Saturday night I was telephoned to come to a saloon on Spring street, not a hundred miles from First street. I went, and the barkeep he said he had a couple of fellows who wanted to go home. Well, he bundled them into my hack. You know them, lots of people know them, and it would be mean to give away their names. So I'll call them George and Jim. They have only been married a short time, and they live quite near each other, one not far from Washington street, and the other no further from Figueroa. Well, sir, these two duffers were stupid drunk. I knew the part of town they lived in, but 1 didn't exactly know where their houses were, and they were too drunk to tell me; so I drove out pretty near to where 1 thought they belonged. Then I woke them up. I shook George up pretty well, and kept asking him where Jim lived. At last he sleepily whisnered out a number—we'll call it 1000. Then I let him go to sleep again, and went through the same procedure with Jim, and he managed to stutter out in reply to my question as to where George lived that it was, at say, 2000 on the other stieet. "OH' I went, and drew up in front of 1000 and rang the bell a half a dozen times. At last a window went up, and a sweet voice wanted to know what the mat ter was. I explained the situation, and the voice began to cry. I expostu lated and insisted on the door being opened. Well, the wife came down and opened the door. She explained that she did not want her husband taken up stairs ; but I could leave him on a lounge in the pallor. So I got a hold of Jim and hustled him out of the hack, pulled him into the house, and laid him on the lounge, all in the dark, too, for the lady was not fully dressed, and did not want to be seen. I let him down on the lounge with a kerchunk, and he recom menced 111? Snot'tng. "I climbed up on the box then, and drove on to No. 2000. Here I rang the bell again, and explained again. The answer came in a sweet voice, but there was no doubt that this woman was very mad. "Just wait till 1 get some clothes on, and then I'll open the door, and you can bring the nasty, drunken thing up," she answered, and shut the window with a bang that nearly broke the glass. "I felt sorry for George, for I sized it up that be would get a warm reception. Soon the door opened, and 1 was told to bring 'that drunken thing' in. I picked him up and took him in. "Take him upstaiis, please, and lay him on the bed," the wife told me. He was a light-weight, so upstairs I took him and turned into the first room where there was a light, and laid him down on a bed. "The lady came in after me, gave one glance at the Bleeping drunk, and com menced to scream, "What do you mean by bringing a strange man into my house. This thing isn't my husband. I'll have you both arrested. What do you mean. Where is my husband? Do you hear. Where is my husband?" "1 broke out into a cold perspiration. My knees trembled «nd I distinctly felt my hair standing on end. Had I got these husbands mixed? "Mean while the woman kept screaming and the noise roused George. He stared Stupidly at the woman, who commenced abusing him and telling him to get "right out of here," and then he looked at me. She was so serious in her demonstrations that he began to get sobered up,and I says tohim, 'I've made a bit of a mistake sir; I think we had better get out of here.' " "So do I," he answered bracing up first rate, "but where's Jim?'" "Oh, 1 took him home," 1 said. "Who is Jim?" asked the lady. " 'Jim Doe, ma'am," answered George, mentioning Jim's real name. "He was with me when we started out.' " "'Ah, indeed," she replied, getting very white, aud turning to me she said, "and where did you leave him?' " "Well, sir, I was that scared that my tongue was stiff. But it had to come out sooner or later, so I blurted it out: "Why, ma'am, I left him at his house, number 2000 —." "'You villain, you,' shouted George, "that's my house," and he smashed me in the nose and made a rush for the stairs, with mo after him and tbe woman after me. He was sober enough now, and be ran like a deer, and in a very lew minutes we all brought up in front of number 1000. There was a white lobed figure of a woman and she called to us: "Oh, please come In and take this man out of here or call the police. There's a strange man here, and oh. please, come in and take him out." "Mr. George made a jump for the door smashed it open, and saw Mr. Jim, who was still snoring on the sofa in the parlor where the lady had lighted the gas soon after I bad left und found out the mistake. George gathered the sleep ing beauty up and rolled him out down the steps just in time for him to strug gle to his feet, as his wife, too much out of breath to scold him, came pant ing along. "Me? Well, you can bet, when I saw that no harm was done, or no tragedy likely to ensue, I sprinted back to my hack and whipped out of that part of the city as fast as I could. Queer com bination, wasn't it? Each of them was so (trunk, when 1 asked where the other lived, they gave their own number. That whs two weeks ago, and I Haven't seen either of those young bucks down town of an evening since, and I don't think 1 will again very soon. Do yon?" From his knowledge of feminine nature, the reporter answered no. They are Worn by Soldiers. Evidcc sof the value, of Allcock's Porous Pi.antkrh comes in the following letter from Cluules Yeiiger, of Company A, 11th U. B. In fantry, stationed at Kurt .Sully, Dakota: "I have been using Allcock's Porous Pi.as- TBESforthe last ten > ears, and feel quito lost if I have not half B dozen in my possession. In this section of the country we have at times very severe cold. When the thermometer is below zero, 1 find that an ALLCOCK'S Fount's on the pit of the stomach is invalu able. They appear not only to warm the body, but to invigorate the digestion. At times 1 have been ir.eatly troubled with a lame bark. Two Ali.cock's Porous Plasters placed upon the spine invariably cure me in two or three days. Sometimes I have had a severe cough and very bad cold. An Allcock's Porous Plaster placed around the throat and on the chest, and one between the shoulder blades, have invariably afforded me Immediate relief and a quick cure."
