Calvetti ia a religioua fanatic bimaelf and undertook to con duct a communion service of hia own. He therefore procured a two-gallon demijohn of port wine, and entreated the liateners to the Band of Hope, to "drink of the blood of the Lamb." Some of the audience seized the opportunity, and there would have been several individuala loaded with "blood" had these curioua communion services not been interferred with. When firat remonstrated with, Cal vetti got highly indignant and proposed to defend hia position in the manner of the church militant. He and bis jug of port wine were therefore dragged to the police station. "What wound did ever heal but by degreeß''" That's an easy conundrum!

IN SOCIETY. • Woodbury Business College ball was well filled Friday evening with the friends and patrons of the college, it being the occasion of another of their popular socials. Although the weather was not agreeable, at the opening of the exercises tbe reception hall was well filled, with many standing. The young lady and gentlemen students exercised much good taste in decorating the room with ferns, flowers, etc., and had suc ceeded in making it present a very pleasing appearance to the eye of the visitor. The programme was well selected and consisted of a piano solo ably executed by Mr. E. K. Nicholson and a humorous recitation, Sandy Mac Donald's Signal, which was well rendered by Mr. J. M. Leach. This was followed by a guitar and banjo duet by Meesrs. H. W. Masac and T. F. Stasaforth. Miss Pearly Gleason recited The Polish Boy in a most creditable manner. Mr. Masac followed with a banjo solo, which was very pleasing to the audience. Mrs. Davidson, a teacher of elocution from Sioux City, lowa, recited a scene from Nicholas Nickelby. Mrs. Davidson is undoubtedly a lady of much talent and Bhowed her ability in the presentation of this difficult recitation. Misa Pearly Gleaaon'a Bong the College BaaebailClub brought much applause from the audi ence. After the concluaion of the programme the audience indulged in a grand promenade and a general good time. * * The Saturday evening hopa at the East San Gabriel hotel are becoming very popular. The guests of the hotel about filled the ballroom last Saturday evening, and thoroughly enjoyed them aelvea. Refreshments were served at 11 o'clock, and again the Arend orchea tra kept everybody dancing until the clock waa within five minutes of mid night.

They are entertaining Miaaea Maud Wadham and Nettie Pauly and Mr. J. E. Wadham and Mr. Black well on board. At 1 o'clock the yacht went outside with the party and an chored near the flagship. This evening the company will be augmented by aome of the officers from the flagship, and a delightful evening will undoubtedly be spent upon the ocean. The viaitora from the city will remain on board until to morrow to witneaa tbe target practice by the San Francisco's big gune, and Mr. Lacy and bride will return to the Angel City about the laat of the week. **» The Loa Angelea Catholic Benevolent association will celebrate Waahington'B Birthday thia evening with a ball at Turner hall. AMUSEMENTS. The opera house will be open at a matinee thia afternoon and performance thia evening by the Griamer-Daviea company. For the matinee they will present the cornedv-drama,The Burglar, written by Augustus Thomas, author of Alabama, and in the evening the do mestic comedy-drama, Ferncliff, which haa been very successful in the east. The atory of the play ia a atory of the war. It ia a war play, with a atriking peculiarity; there is no fighting, no bat tle scene, the acting of the drama taking place at Newport, R. I. The plot ia Baid to be very intereating, telling a atory of love and brotherly devotion, with well developed acenea and strongly handled climaxes, and the sentiment of a hearty and honeat character. Roland Reed will appear at the Los Angelea theater for a run of three nighte, commencing Thurßday evening; the management make the following claim for the player and hia plays: The play ia of French origin, but it ia admirably adapted and the humor ia not only apontaneoua but American. Mr. Reed has a part exactly suited to the quaint, dry, droll fun of which he ia showing himself a maater —that of a Maine aea captain with a pretty daught er and a handsome nephew who are in love with each other. But Captain Tar box Bhipa his nephew off to New York with an allowance and an order to marry aomebody elee. Dick, the nephew, writea to hia uncle that he haa married, not expecting the captain ever to visit New York, but tbe unexpected happena and Dick ia compelled to borrow the wife and baby of hia friend, Tom Bunt ing, to avoid detection. Scarcely ia the arrangement concluded when Captain Tarbox and hia daughter, Hitty, arrive at Bunting'a honee, believing it to be the nephew's. Then the trouble be gins. The burden of the fun-making, aa a matter of course, devolves upon Mr. Reed. In the first act it ia not nearly ao apontaneoua aa in the second, the lat ter being productive of a perfect cyclone of laughter. But the young atar, by a make-up that ia singularly picturesque, not touching in any way upon the gro tesque, and a facial expression that in itself tells part of the atory, manages to extract a great deal of amusement for tbe audience out of the odd entangle ments with which the play begins and the complexing situations that he man ages to make all the more complex. The management of the Grand opera house announce that the tragedian, Mr. Frederick Warde, and hia company will play an engagement of four nights and Saturday matinee, commencing Wednes day, March 2d. On Wedneaday night and at the Saturday matinee Mr. Warde will produce The Lion'a Mouth, on Thursday The Mountebank, on Friday Richard 111. and on Saturday Damon and Pythias. What folly! To be without Bbschak's Pills. A NEW MUSICAL INVENTION. IS IT AN ORGAN OR A PIANO? All the objections to the parlor organ are at last done away with by this new invention. It has seven full octaves, and looks exactly like a fine upright piano. There are no stops in view, and the instrument ia worked by two pedals exactly like thoae on a piano, and a 6-year-old child ia able to work them with ease. The delicacy and variety of ita tonea are wonderful, and the touch ao light and quick that the moßt difficult piano pieceB can be executed thereon without difficulty. It is a marvelous improvement upon the parlor organ, and has created a great sensa tion in muaical circlea. The price ia not very much higher than that of the ordinary organ.

The question as to Peter Maher's gameneßS is a matter of public concern, says the New York Sun, and today the Irish champion is not such a favorite in his match with Bob Fitzsimmons aa he waa a week ago. *An incident goea to prove thia. On Monday laat when a prominent better heard that another man wanted to lay $1200 on Fitzgim mona againat $2000 on Maher, the form er made up hia mind that he would take that chance. On coming together thia converaation took place: "I hear you will bet $2000 on Maher against $1200 on Fitzsimmons. Is that right?" "Well, I was thinking of it, but, really, it ought to be even money." "Humph! You've changed your mind. Well, I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll bet you $1500 against $2000." "No; I want even money." There was more haggling, but the bet at even was finally made for $1000. Men who want to put out their money, though they like Maher'e style, cannot see tbat the Irishman has done any thing to prove himself a stayer, and they believe that Fitzsimmons can hit as hard aa most men new in the ring. If he landa a time or two Maher will feel something that will call out the pluck of the pluckieat, and there ia no body to say that Peter haa shown that he belonga in the gamecock class. After the above bet waa made, Jack Quinn, the Scotch light-weight cham pion, who waa preaent, said something that ia worth noting. Quinn ia an ob servant and level-headed chap, who generally speaks sensibly. "The fact that a man trains hard," aaid he, "ia no evidence that he ia game. He may be naturally energetic. Hia mind may be of the kind that requires physical action to counteract ita work ings. I mean that a man may be nervoua and excitable—hia blood may have a feverish tendency—and such a person, when of an athletic disposition, naturally wants to go and do something to expend his surplus energy. That sort of a display has nothing to do with courage under a punching. The man may be young, strong, hearty, but a blow landed in the right spot by an ex perienced and powerful opponent will knock a good deal of that vigor out of him, and two or three blows may do him up completely unless he possesses something more than the characteristic which I may describe as restless activity. I have known men to take a terrible lot of punching before yielding victory. I don't mean lazy men. I mean men whose life and activity are brought out only under a stresß of circumstances, such as a good thumping. Under these condi tions I have seen men who take plenty of time to do everything they under take, brighten up in an astonishing way and fight like tigers. The stuff was in them, but it was latent. It required an unusual occasion to bring it out. "On tbe other hand, there are uiin who, while in training, as well as in their every day avocations, perform their duties with a rush and earnest ness so great that it might be called fiery. Often it is only nervousness, and, in reality, a sign oi weakness that will certainly display itself when the true test of endurance comes. In a word, a man may train with all faithfulness and honesty, but, on the receipt of a weak ening blow, go to pieceß. He cannot train on blows, so he cannot get used to them. To withstand them he must have a something under the skin of his left breast whose quality is never dis covered until he goes up against a good drubbing. Ido not mean all thia to ap ply to Peter Maher particularly. lam simply stating a general principle. But, after all, of what use is all the training in the world if a fellow gets the right kind of a amaah here?" and Jack placed a finger on hia jawbone alongside hia chin. THE SAN FRANCISCO TEAM. The Players Who Will Battle for Harris. Here is a shy at the make-up of the San Franciaco club for 1892, and I think that the latter-day developments will ahow that the prediction is not far out of the way, says a writer in Pacific Field Sporta. The team will be as fol lowa: Spies, catcher; Hoffman and Hart, pitchera; Pete Sweeney, firat base; James P. Bonaparte Sharp, sec ond base; Reitz, third baee; Dave Coughlin, shortstop; outfielders, Levy, Sweeney and another player yet to be secured, who will be able to do a trick behind the plate. lam pretty sure that all of these players, with the exception of Hart and Coughlin, have been aigned, but Manager Harria will not say so just now. Pete Sweeney, very probably, will captain the team. Harria will not send east for another catcher, but will aign a local man, and from what I can understand that man will not be "Pop" Swett. "Pop" haa been released from reservation, and that would certainly eeem as though he ia not wanted. The other 'Frisco men who have been re leased from reservation are Cartwright, Blauvelt and Nick Smith. Harris has not decided whether to get a shortstop or third baseman. If he gets a short fielder be will play Reitz at third and the latter will go to short if a guardian of bag 3 is engaged. The local manager haß been dickering with Dave Ooughlin, who is a brother of Ros coe the pitcher, and it is likely that he may come here. He is a third baseman and a good one. Up to a few days ago all that stood as an obstacle to pitcher Hart's engagement was his demand for a free transportation from St. Louis. He had accepted Harris' terms, which were pretty steep, I believe, but like the average ball tosser wanted to travel out here at the expense of hiß manager. He is reputed to be a tip top pitcher and Harris' team will be very strong in the box if Hait is landed. Harris was so determined to c et pitcher Jack Fanning for his team that he concluded the negotiations with the pitcher and the latter signed a San Francisco contract. Then the manager began investigating the claim that the ]' Pacific-Northwest league had on Fan- I ning's services for this season. Fanning was reserved by the northern club with which he played last season. Harris doubted the club's right to reserve the pitcher and telegraphed to N. E. Young about the matter. Mr. Youug answered that the Pacific-Northwest league had the right to reserve its players. That settled the matter and Fanning was in formed that under the circumstances he would not be wanted by the 'Frisco club. COLTON. A Little Boy Killed by a Motor Line Train. Special Correspondence of the Hbkald. | Colton, Feb. 21. Milchey Altman, a 7-year-old boy, son of Mrs. Altman,.cook at the Marlbor ough hotel, was instantly killed this morning. He attempted to board the Motor train while it was in motion, and fell between the cars; the wheels ran over his head, crushing it terribly. The mother iB crazed with grief. No blame can be attached to the Motor company or trainmen. The exhibits at the citrus fair will be completed in time for the opening at 7 p. m. tomorrow evening. A large force worked until 12 o'clock last night and made rapid progress, so that tomorrow will give ample time to arrange all the exhibits and puton the finishing touches to the decorations. A Novel Sport. The pleasant weather broughtquite a number of both ladies and gentlemen out to Mondonville yesterday, and the clever device of having greyhounds race after an artificial hare was greatly ap preciated by the crowd, as the idea is such a novel one. Mr. Flynn, the pro prietor of Mondonville, intends having races of this kind take place every Sun day, and as there is no admission fee charged, and the place being ,go well lo cated, Mondonville promises to become a favorite place of amusement to those who wish to spend a pleasant Sunday afternoon. \r DELICIOUS " Flavoring Extracts NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS.

Supe rior classes of mercuaudise which we have only handled in small quantities we have elaborated on In every detail. Our experience with the better class of goods in the past six months has been so complimentary that we have been induced to go into it to its fullest extent. As oui ratio of profit is uniform, you will find all classes of goods sold in like pro portion. As far as price is concerned, you will always find us under any house in town, and if, perchance, it should happen that we are not, we will consider it a kindness to be in formed by our patrons, and will make our prices even lower than any quotation men tioned. Those of our patrons who remember our domestic department in the center aisle of our store, and the difficulty experienced in reaching these counters, owing to the large number of purchasers to be s-rved aud the limited space, will find more accommodation and a larger stock in new quarters, formerly occupied by our dress goods department. It is the height of our ambition, now that tie dress goods aud silk stocks are moved to the center aisles, to line these counters with as eager and expectant patrons purchasing silks and dress goods as were formerly wont to occupy the ssme space buying cotton fabrics. It requires time, but with the inducements that we hold out it must eventually come. We shall offer a line of 4b' inch plaid wool dress goods in gray effects; you will find tbem to be the cheapest merchandise ever sold by any establishment In the known world; mind the wiath, one yard and a quarter, and tbe price will be 25c This is an item that should call out every lady in Los Angeles that has any wants in the ■ way of good dress goods for 25c per yard; as we are desirous of having this go as fur hs pos sible, and only having a limited quantity, we must resirlct tho purchase to eight yards for any one purchaser. The next inducement to visit our stores • arly Monday morning off-red by the dre;s goods de partment is a line of 40 inch all wool, solid colored, s ilk finished henriettas and serges, the value of which raoged from $1.25 to 11.50 per yard; these goods could not be imported lor $1 per yard. Owing to the limited quantity we have of them, and wishing them to go as far as postihle, we must restrict the purchase to 10 yards for any single person, Price, 75c Considering the quality of these goods, and they a so come 'n back, we must say that at 75c per yard th ,y are even a greater value than the first item at 25c. You all know what the French aU wool chal lie is, and you know the price is just aa staple as it is on calico; there is less money in hand ling these goods at the regular prices of 05c and 75c per yard than there fs in selling cot ton flannel; we will place them on sale Mon day at 40b We will call your attention to the fact that the colored dress goods which we had on sale during the past week will remain so during the present one, and those who were unable to get to town owing to the Inclement weather have an opportunity to avail themselves of this offer. In black dre«s goods there is not a house in the state of California that can show you the quality for the money that we quote. We com mence our line at 15c for half wool serges and henriettas. At 35c you buy a French imported cashmere or serge, 36 to 40 inches wide, all wool: we could not land these goods for 40c in New York. At SOc you are buying a quality that we always got 75c for. At 75c we sell jou the line th*t we always got 98c,for, and it em braces all wool serges, henriettas, fancy novel ty black goods, sili fancy drop d'alma. We tell you the truth when we say these goods can never be replaced for the money we are selling them at. For 98n we are selling you our $1.60 quality of black silk warp henrletta. our black silk warp glorias, our silk finish fancy serges and henriettas, 46 inches wide. At 85c we sell you a line of fancy novelty dress goods, 42 inches wide; they arrived yes terday, are tho very newest creations •< nd under other circumstances we could not offer to sell them under $1 25 per yardv In colored and figured India silks we are sell ing a line of 24 Inch at 45c. We do net want to confuse thnse goods with the quality tbat is being sold at and which will not hold a thread. The latter is the cheapest made. We won't have it in our house. In purchasing silks, no matter whether they are ours or oth ers, always try the strength of the material, and you will find these cheap silks are nothing but tissue paper. The silk we offer you is a grade that was sold at 65c, and we warrant these goods to give wear and satisfaction. In selling our silks, dress goods or any fabric in the house wa do so with an implied guarantee that they will give wear and satisfaction to the purchaser, otherwise we stand ready at any time to make it good. At 74c and 85c we sell you some of the hand somest printed fndia silks that you have ever seen, and certainly the best Value for the money ever offered in Los Angeles. At 98c a lineof sublime printed India silks. We have heretofore declined to sell them at $1.24 because actual comparison with any thing iv this town has proven them to be '/5c per yard cheaper than the closest competition; a number of patrons inform ub that they can buy a similar qusltity at th 9 same price; to be lower than the lowest we have marked them at 98c We would advise our friends that at 98c this is the cheapest piece of silk we have in our stock. We are offering specially a line of col ored surahs of sublime quality at 50c per yard. We have all the uew shades, and tell you candidly that we cannot replace them when these are gone under 75c per yard. Our special sale on black dress silks, all dif ferent weaves, at 75 cents will continue during the week as long as we have the goods. We can emphasize the fact that there never has at any time, in the mercantile history of this town, at any sale, for any cause, under any circumstances, been merchandise, such as we have mentioned above, quoted at these prices. In our wash fabric stock you will find the newest things, new materials created this sea son, new designs printed and woven, colton Bedford cords copied from the finest imported wool materials with the handsomest printed designs. We are offering these goods, and they should command 25c per yard, at Isc A line of handsome printed cotton Chevrons. These are aIBO imitations of the fine French dress goods. When made up it would be a diffi cult matter lo tell the difference between them and a tine all wool dress goods, This line should command 25c per yard and we have marked them to sell at 10c Some very handsome styles in fine French Sateens, as well as new material called wash silk. When made up it requires an expert to discern the difference between this material and the real silk. These goods ought never to leave the store, even at a special sale, under 25c, but they will be sold if you come early Monday morning at 15c. A line of black satin striped cotton dress goods. A most handsome material. One you cannot resist purchasing if you want anything in black cotton material. These goods would be low priced at 40c. We will let them go at 25c In our dress gingham department we are showing a line of newest spring creations that were purchased by us to sell at and not intended to be opened until tbe middle of March; but, to Illustrate to you how cheap we can sell goods, they will be on sale at B*G A new line of shirtings, the finest material that we have ever laid upon our counter, and )ou know that we have shown some fine shirt ing effects; but we have never had any to equal these at double the price. They come in light, (1 HAMBURGER j SONS medium and dark colors, the designs biing dif ferent from any heretofore 6hown. The price will be lOc and iso A line of choice printed new effects called moysseline d'chantillv. This is solid ground with exquisite printings, comes in all new colors and is about same width as a gingham, (toods tbat were purchased to sell at per yard, and you will recognize it to be about the chased 81 Cl ° th for the l ualu y you ever pur -6*o ■ We . are headquarters for bleached aud brown muslins, Canton flannels, apron checks, ging hams, e;c., selling thtm at retail at the same price we do at wholesale. ihe items we have quoted in the two fore going classes,, being the principal ones in our stores, will, if you have any interest, bring yon for inspection. When you are here, walk around the store aud see what inducement low prices will cause you to invest. As you w (ilk down the aisle on the left-hand side, our ribbon stock first claims your notice.
