Grand Complimentary Beneflt Ten
dered to miss Jennie KelflTarth.
During tho time botween the close
ofthe Vivian Troupe's engagement in
this city and the opening in San Di
ego, tiie many friends of the estimable
lady and talented actress, Miss Jennie
Reiffarth, have tendered her a compli
mentary benefit to take place at Turn-
Verein Hall this evening. The entire
company, with a single unimportant
exception, have volunteered to play
for the benefit of Miss Reiffarth, aud
the following splendid bill will be pre
LOVE IN HUMBLE LIFE.
Christina Miss Jennie Reiffarth
Ronslaus J. B. Robinson
Carlitz Wm. Simms
Brandt C. E. Allen
To be followed by Vivian's Olio, in
which he will introduce his favorite
songs, anecdotes, etc. Then will be
given a serio-comic duet, by Miss
Jennie Reiffarth and Mr. Vivian, after
which will be given, by particular re
quest, the pastoral drama, with
the following strong cast:
Dora Miss Jennie Reiffarth
Mary Morrison Miss Ella Allen
Farmer Allen J. B. Robinson
Wm. Allen C. E.Allen
Luke Brosmfield Wm. Simms
Blunt H. Elmore
Willie Master Charlie
A splendid bill,and presented on tbe
occasion of the benefit of a lady who
by her excelleut acting and untiring
efforts to please has contributed much
to the pleasure of our theatre goers.
Turn-Vereiu Hall sbould be crowded
this evening. Of the beneficiary a
few words may be said. Miss Reif
fartb is an actress of acknowledged
ability. While excelling iv the per
sonation of all classes of characters it
is in those requiriug a display of in
tense feeling—the faithful portrayal
of emotion —that she most excels and
in which she has few equals on the
Pacific Coast. As "Dora," Miss Reif
farth has won the applause of the
most critical of San Francisco audi
ences, and those who see her in this
character this evening will add their
approval to that of the thousands who
have seen her in San Francisco, Sac
ramento, Stockton and other parts of
the State. Mr. and Mrs. Allen, who
have so kindly volunteered their ser
vices In behalf of Miss Reiffarth's
benefit, are capable and painstaking
artists who, during their two weeks
engagement in this city, have won
hosts of friends both on and off the
stage. Mr. Simms we have seen often
in Sau Francisco, and his visit
here enables us to say that he
is going up in the profession like a
rocket, and there is not the least dan
ger of his coming down like the stick.
Our old friend J. B. Robinson is on the
bills. He never was known to refuse
to play for the benefit of one of his profst
sionand neverknown to play badly. In
old man characters, Rob. is better
than the old man himself. Ou this,
the last appearance of the company in
this city, we feel like saying some
thing about Vivian; but as we have
been saying good and true things
about him for years, we find it ditlicult
to get up one—' 'ah, hem, y am—on this
occasion," and will cut him off with
the single remark that he is a brick
none of your soft, sun-dried adobes,
but a regular hard-burned brick, who
always tries to please and always does
please. All these good people will
play this evening for the benefit of
their esteemed co-worker, and she will
do all in her power to make her bene
fit an occasion which all shall remem
ber with satisfactioa and pleasure.

A TRIP TO THE HILLS.
A Uosslpy Letter Irom Our Anaheim
Correspondent '* Phlllis"- The Fall
of Pride — A Woman's Notion or
Matters and Thing:*.
When it was announced the team
was to go to •'« Wood's Cafion," I was
ready for the expedition, and witii a
well-filled lunch pail, mounted the
high seat of the great farm wagon
with some pride at the feat and we
started off. Pride must have a fall.
The principle is as fixed as the most
inexorable law of nature; and, in my
case, tiie fall was literal and sure. On
driving past a neighbor's, we were
suddenly aware of a clothes-line
stretched across our line of march a
little above the height of the wagon.
I never was quick at expedients; it
did not even occur to me that I could
raise the barrier with my hand, but
like the ostrich, I covered my eyes to
avoid seeing the danger, and — well,
the shouts of laughter from certain
witnesses and my nicely balanced po
sition across tlie back of that seat, tell
the tale. For tiie credit of humanity,
however, I will say, the lookers-on ilitl
suppress their merriment sufficiently
to place me in an uptight position;
but I am forced to cry, "Alas, for the
rarity of human " sympathy, as well
as "charity, under the sun," and I do
hope to be able to survive the ridicule
consequent upon that affair. But,
again under way, we rode for miles
over a rich, fertile plain. The first
part of the way the farmers seemed to
devote their land more especially to
the cultivation of the vine, and young
orange orchards were in a thriving
condition. Further on were broad
fields of grain, already a luxuriant
green, and fields newly turned by the
gang-plows, showing what one might
expect to see a month or two later,
while the tasteful dwellings and com
modious barns gave evidence of the
thrift and intelligence of tbe inhabit
ants. As these were passed there came
as by regular gradations the rich pas
ture lands of thousands ami thousands
of sheep, whose tinkling bells and
loud bleating had an oriental sound,
and we were aware of the almost im
perceptible change iv the features of
the landscape. First came a gentle
swell, then rolling hills with grass as
smoothly shaven as a lawn to their
very tops, and at la-4 we are drawn
gradually into the canon itself, witii
the dimpled green hills upon one side,
and on the other the brown, precipi
tous heights. Here are great bunches
of cactus, brilliant tufts of scarlet sage,
patches of elders and southernwood
that relieve their sombre look, and
whose summits almost reach the clouds
upon the other. Yes, and here are the
walls of an old stone house, part way
up the hill and just beyond the grass
line; solid and square, with a huge
chimney at tlie back, the walls appar
ently laid in lime mortar. I marvel
greatly who and what manner of per
son it could be who built for himself
so substantial a dwelling so far from
the busy haunts of men. But the
walls tell no tales, and I am forced to
turn away with my curiosity unsatis
fied. All around are great patches of
asphaituni that oozing from the
ground In black streams cools, form
ing a thick, hard c-rust. When broken,
this resembles somewhat mineral coal,
and in oue place the surface of tiie
earth lias been broken and you look
down asm a well filled with the inky
black liquid. It has an uncaney look
as though it might belong to
the infernal regions below, and
I make a very short stay here.
The wonder is that iv a country
where fuel and timber are so scarce
this article is not more generally util
ized. Who knows but there are coal
beds underneath which here would be
as valuable as a coal mine? While for
roofing aud pavements the asphaituni
Itself must be useful. By a refining
process petroleum could be manufac
tured. Not always will these black
beds remain undisturbed, save by the
economical fanners who strives to
eke out his scanty supply of fuel by
using it for that purpose.
Just before our return I climbed the
high hill for a grand view of tlie sur
rounding country, and felt well paid
for the trouble. Like a broad panora
ma the whole plain was at my feet
dotted witii farm houses here and
there with the trees of Anaheim look
ing in the distance like the bare masts
of shipping in the harbor, while far
beyond lay the silvery shimmering
The homeward side was exceedingly
pleasant with some slight drawbacks.
We would like to enter a protest
agaiust faruiets drawing the water
from their artesian wells into the
highway causing the mud to be three
or four feet deep, and traveling, to say
the least, not conducive to a Christian
frame of mind. Plillis.
A lively row occurred in Chinatown
about 9:30 o'clock last evening. As
near as we can learn, it was all about
a fair Celestial damsel. In the fracas,
one Chinaman drew a revolver and
shot another, inflicting a wound in
the leg, and afterwards striking the
wounded man over the head with his
weapon. Officer Thomas was promptly
on the scene of action, when the bel
licose Mongolian fired two shots at
him and made off to parts unknown.
Soon after, Chief Carrillo and officer
Dobson made their appearance and,
after a diligent search, succeeded in
arresting a man whom they found con
cealed in an out-of-the-way room, aud
who was identified as the guilty party
hy those who witnessed the affair. The
fellow gave his name as Yaing. Ho
