A FAREWELL AND A GREETING.
s. p. smith.
Farewell, farewell to old Seventy-Foil";
'Tlh gotio wltl. nil Its sorrow* ami Issra—
'Tis gone with Its ho,»es, ami Joys evermore,
With its pleasures, its sadness and tears.
How lleetlug is timet
Shall we pouder it well?
While ut midnight we bid
The Old Your farewell.
Tls gone! and with It ourcastles In air,
We'd reared for tho future a twelvo-month
An 1 our pidsp'ets and plans that then bid
Have vanished life... dew-drops when early
And when we had hoped
Thai all woul 1 be woil,
Disappointments have come-
To the Old Year, farewell.
'Tls gone! and many who started out then
With bright golden dreams, and cheerful
Willi hopes mounting high—have faltered,
Their bright visions vanished huve failed
lv their part.
Then, Joyous and happy—
Now sorrowing dwell;
As at midnight we bid
Tho Old Year farewell.
'Tls gone! and oh how many loved ones,
Have passed from its stage of action and
Borne amid weeping friends at their homes,
Some far away, or mid carnage and strife.
They are gone! and with us
Sad memories dwell,
As at midnight we bid
The Old Yeur farewell.
'Tls gone! why lament the Old Yoar's adieu?
Worse tiiau folly now to grieve or com
Then with glau hopes let us welcome the
Gird on the bright armor of action again.
With faith In tho future
That all may be well,
Now at midnight we'll bid
Tbe Old Year farewell.
Then ring, ring y>> bells in merry chime,
For 'tis the birthday of Old Time;
King till the nation's heart shall feel,
The Joyous shock of every peei;
And every soul un anthem raise,
To welcome in tho golden days.
Uiug for the new born, loud aud long, v
Not for tho Old Year, that were wrong.
Though Seventy-Four's forever lied,
It is not numbered with tho dead;
As poets In the olden time,
Iluvesungiu many a plaintive rhymo.
Hut all our actlons,ull our lives
Are folded up In Heaven's archives;
A perfect transcript written clear,
Of right and wroug transacted here.
Ring then aloud, the New Year's come!
Let every heart and every home
He light aud happy, choerful, guy-
To greet another New Year's Hay.
And we, who in this favored spot,
This sunny slime, have cast our lot;
Uhul anthems nomeach lip should fall,
Of "Happy New Year" unto all.

NAMING THE APPLE.
'Tis looked Within my memory,
An>l naught but death can tear from mo,
Tli' impression left by one sweet, word,
Perchance tho dearest over hoard.
1 know, perhaps, by some 'twould seem
An idle thought of sweet -Ixteen;
Hut what you said, it must be true,
for naught but truth oould come from you.
Home, moulded by the hand of Kate,
Aro born to Jove, or born to lime,
And sprinkling doubt with pure alloy,
Are such as earth deprives of joy.
■ball I, my pretty cherub maid,
Believe untrue what you have said?
One moment's doubt Is bitter woo,
I cuunot think it—no! no! no!
As trav'lers plod some unknown way,
Without a light, or single ray,
Henighted leave them moving on,
To lind some spot not so forlorn;
Now here, there Is no doubt in this,
For lost they cannot go amiss,
They had already gone astray,
And find their exit any way.
You took the apple from ths shelf,
And ate it, dear, your own sweet self;
I named that's very true Indeed,
You told me thou what said the seed.
Then doubt is banished from my heart,
And|fro|ii me never will It part,
When "naming" comes as nopos above,
Oh joy! "tut loves, she loves, both love."
Believe me then, what's said is truo,
1 take it all in all from you.
Ho let the Old Year pass away,
And hope smile brightest New Year's Day.
With some, perhaps, of colder cllmo,
.Such words are thought as "passing time;"
To those by nature warm,oh never!
Once he loves, the loves, both forever;
Tho apple spoke, and grafted, let it be,
Ou our hearts toall eternity,
Now don't be angry with me dear,
For what I mean is very clear.
Why naming apples now-a-days,
Is eholoe among our parlor plays;
Aud though unpleasant now and then.
Apples are apples and men are men.
Los Angeles, New Year's Eve, '7-1.
The Disciples of Christ held a re
union on New Year's night, at the
German church, on Spring street. Tho
music especially deserves and received
applause; besides the choruses, Mr.
and Mrs. Linton sang "Parting
Hours" very pathetically. After re
freshments Kris Kingle made his ap
pearance, loaded with toys, which
were distributed among the children
present, both members of the Sunday
Schools and outsiders. The Sunday
School has been organized but a few
weeks, ami the fact reflects extra
credit upon its members for the sue
cessful ending of the year.
The annual ball of the Los Angeles
Social Club, given at their spacious
and elegant on New Year's eve,
was largely attended by the best peo
ple in the city, and from the first
promenade to the farewell gallop
everything went off in first-class style.
Tlie hall was elegantly decorated and
all the arrangements were perfect.
Tlie Terpsichorean Social Club had
a most enjoyable ball on New Year's
night at Deck's Hall. The hall was
neatly decorated, the (ladies' toilettes
were faultless, the gentlemen were
most gallant, and all present enjoyed
themselves to the very utmost. The
youug ladies will anxiously await a
repetition of the party.
The preliminary examination in
the case of the State vs. J. C.Wallace,
charged with the killing of Henry
Neilson, was pending yesterday be
fore Judge Gray. The examination
will not be finished until Monday
Dr. Brenan's Last Lecture.
Dr. Paul M. Drenan delivered his
final lecture last night, at Turn-Vereln
Hall, before a large and highly pleated
audience. His subject, "The Brain,
tlie Langs, the Heart and the Stom
ach," was handled iv a masterly man
ner, and many new truths were told,
calculated to do much good, both to
the afflicted and to those sound in
health. We regret that it is impossi
ble, for want of space, lo give a full
synopsis of his views, as expressed
last night. Dr. Brenan does not be
lieve in the old idea, still entertained
by many physicians, that the remedy
for each disease is one and tlie ftntnej
he believes iv the old adage, "<Ro
man's meat is another man's poison,"
and in his treatment lie pays especial
attention t<> the temperament of (he
patient. At the conclusion of his lec
ture he recited "Shanius O'Brien'' to
the immense delight of his auditors,
besides establishing tbe fact that he is
a gifted elocutionist, as well asa gifted
physitian. Owing to the many pro
fessional calls made upon him during
the past week, and t he fact that many
difficult cases are still under his treat
ment, Dr. Rrenan lias consented to
remain one week longer. His office
has been removed from the Pico
Hoype to Abbot's building, on Main
street, next to the Fashion stables.
The stockholders of the Southern
District Agricultural Society held
their annual meeting yesterday
and elected Dr. McDugall President of
the Association for the ensuing year,
with J. F. Burns as Secretary.
The civil docket in the County
Court will be called on to-morrow
morning at ten o'clock, when cases
will be set for trial. All appeals should
be placed on the calendar.

WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?
Thy neighbor? It is he whom thou
Hast power to aid and bli mm,
Whose aching head or burning brow
Thy soothing hand may press.
Thy neighbor? 'Tls that weary man,
Oppressed in every limb,
Bent low with sickness, age and pain:
Uo thou and comfort him.
Thy neighbor? 'Tis that little child
Exposed to want, and sin;
Qo speak to her in accents mild,
Be patient, teach and win.
Thy neighbor" 'Tis the heart bereft
of every earthly gem;
Widow and orphan helpless left;
Oo thou aud succor them.
Whene'er thou meet'st a human farm,
Less favored than thine own,
Let sympathy thy bosom warm,
Olve ear to sorrow's moan.
Ob, pass not, pass not heedless by;
Perhaps thy kindly care
May save some heart from misery;
Go carry blessings there.
Take with theosmiles and gctitlo words
The suh*ering ones to cheer
Walk in tho footsteps of thy Lord,
HisHpirlt will be near.
Oh, point the wanderer's eye to Him,
Kneel when thou may'st in prayer;
And thou In Heaven may meet with them
Whom thou hast guided here,
O weary hands, that through the day,
Life's heavy burden scarcely bear;
Another hand shall take awiiy
This load of toil and sin anil care;
Not here, but there!
0 weary, Rolling, throbbing bruin!
() heart with doubt and sorrow riven!
There Is no toil, no love In vain.
In that blest home that Christ has given;
Not earth, but, heaven.
An Allegory—For the First Sabbath In the
In a peaceful valley tliere Ii veil a
number of people whose leader dwelt
on a lull and guided tlie tillers of the
soil, weaving into their lives many
lessons of truth. They were supplied
with water from the mountain, which
was sent them every morning by a
carrier. It was the master's rule that
each should have his urn clean, that
the freshsupply might not be mingled
with the old. For a time all were
faithful; as each day's supply was
used, the urn was made clean for the
new. But — alas, for human weak
ness! so prone to fall from the line of
duty—soon (a murmur was heard
among the people.
"I have had no fresh water for
days," said one of a group standing
idly by the roadside.
"Neither have 1," said another.
"It's no use for the master to expect
us to labor," remarked a third, "if we
are not supplied with water. Life is
bard enough to bear with all we can
have to help us. Now there's our
neighbor, Cheerful, over the way—his
urn is full of pure, sparkling wator
"And why?" broke in a voice in
tones of remonstrance.
Tlie idlers looked at each other, and
then at the face of Old Faithful, who
was just returning from his evening
walk and had heard their words of
" Let me assure you, my neighbor,"
he said mildly, yet witli force, "it's
all your own fault that your urns are
not filled. You each know the mas
ter's command that they should be
kept clean and ready for the fresh sup
ply. Have you all been faithful to the
They thought among themselves and
answered with but partial truth, say
ing, " We may not always have had
our urns clean, but why should they
be unfilled for that?"
" Because the new water would be
made unclean aud useless by being
mixed with the old. Our master loves
us all alike; but he cannot supply us
with fresh waters and new life if we
have not used the old and prepared for
"I suppose if we had them ever so
clean now the carrier would pass us
by," remarked one of the group.
"Try and see," said Faithful. "We
may always rest assured that if our
part is done the master will do his; for
no one, however kind and merciful,
can benefit, us if we do not put our
selves In a state to be blessed. If the
master sends us fresh water each day
and our urns are impure, is it the fault
of the benefactor that they are so? We
must prepare to receive."
Faithful went on his way. The sun
sank in his bed of Iteecy clouds; the
evening dew fell on the earth, and all
was still. The lesson must have pen
etrated the hearts of the listener*, for
on the morrow their urns, white and
clean, were full of pure, sparkling
Shall we from the beginning of this
new year, as each day comes to us fresh
and pure from the hands of the Ureat
Master, shall we look into our hearts
and see that the life from thence has
gone forth for good and made ready
for new, or are we idly murmuring
that we have no life waters? Can the
Father's life infiow if we do not give?
Our souls are sacred urns which He
longs to fill to overflowing with pure
and heavenly truths if we are willing
to receive and faithful to extend His
mercies. Mks. I. S. Adams.

that the report to tho effect that Dr.
Chase was about to leave the city is
without foundation. Tlie marked im

dence here has induced him to decide
upon making Los Angeles his perma

increasing calls upon his time may suf
fer no possible neglect, the Doctor has
arranged to associate with himself in
practice Dr, H. H. Lyons, lately from
the East, and a gentleman of largo
experience both in hospital and gen
eral practice. Chronic cases and those
requiring lurgioial aid will meet with
Speeiai attention, and persons thus
afflicted will have all tlie advantages
arising from tlie latest and most ap
proved methods of treatment.
