They are of every conceivable style and made up at considerable expense. They are kept at Turn-Verein Hall and can be secured to-day. A letter received by one of our leading business houses from A. 11. & C. B. Ailing, of Birmingham, Conn., gives the following rather unpleasant outlook for our next wool clip: "The market is gradually tending down ward for Southern California wool and very little sale for it at low prices. It now looks from here that buyers would not take hold of wool in your section except at low figures, say from 11 to 13 cents per pound. As gold hus advanced so much and with the pres ent outlook for business the coming season, it will not be safe to pay much, if any, above these figures, and for burry wool something less. The room in Temple Block formerly occupied by the Postoffice, has been leased by Joe Williams. The front will be partitioned off for offices, and the rear, comprising two-thirds of the space, fitted up for a gentlemans' sit ting room to be used in connection with the Palace.

Funeral services were held yester day afternoon over tbe remains of the late Warren Woodson Doxey, at the residence of Mr. D. Lewis, on Main street. An appropriate hymn was sung by two young lady friends of the family, and Mr. Hoke, a spirit medi um, delivered a very earnest and com prehensive sermon. He spoke, not as himself, but as the mouth-piece of a spirit that had control of him. The spirits assured the family that the deceased was with them, but had not as yet acquired power enough to speak to them through the medium. He dwelt at some length on what he termed the life principle. It was of two kinds—individual and universal. The individual life had left, but the universal still lived on and grew stronger and became more elevated day by day. The family and friends were grief-stricken at their great loss and the spirits were unable to comfort them as they would wish to; but they were gaining in strength, and tlie day was not far distant when they would be able to make themselves manifest and comfort the afflicted as Christ did in days of yore. He spoke of the prevalent ignorance of the laws of health and life and urged the great necessity of reform iv that direction. After the services it was announced that the funeral procession would leave the residence of Mr. Lewis at 10 o'clock. Passengers Coming.

That Paper. We have been pelted so unceasingly with sharp interrogations concerning that long-promised Illustrated Press that we ceased some time since to seek the flimsy shelter of explanation and apology, but submitted to the pelting in tranquil silence. As our chief ap proaches, however,we feel like paving his way with a few more words ef ex planation. Business complications at home compelling him to abandon the lecture field just when the harvest was richest, he has gathered up the engrav ings and other fragments of that paper and will bring them home to the tress ollice for a proper arrangement and distribution. And it will come iv very good time after the severity of the Winter past, to direct the frost-bitten victims where to flee from the wrath of the Winter to come. Once we have the engravings and other material safely in our office, some sort of a re sult is inevitable. — Santa Barbara Press. BITS OF FUN. A terrible blow—lVlow zero. The freezing point—an icicle. Dressing for turkeys—Feathers. A great hardship—Au iron steamer. A doughmestic difficulty — Heavy bread, A pair of rubbers—A washerwoman's hands. Is there any law against a striking attitude. Concerted uiovemeat—The waving of a baton. Hush money —The money paid a baby's nurse. The end which all like to come to— A dividend. A good butcher is the carver of his own fortune. Miners search for gold in vein, but often get quartz of it. A bad thing to put up with—An un accommodating landlord. The Irish are a hopeful people; they always try to wake the dead. This is a grate prospect, as the pris oner said while peeping out of his cell window. There is nothing so rigidly Catholic as an umbrella; it keeps lent the year round. Spicer says a fire-place always re minds him of Shakespeare, because it •is a grate barred. A worK on Greek Roots was lately called for in one of our public libraries by a gardener. What is that which has a mouth and never speaks, and a bed and never sleeps? A river. Why is the end of a fish's tail like the Prince Imperial of France? Be cause it is the last of tbe bony-parts. Why is Neptune like the man who searched for the philosopher's stone? Because he was a sea-king what never existed. The report that a successful poultry dealer had set up a carriage, arose from his statement that he had made his coop pay tins season. Mr. Naylle, of Toronto, was knocked down by mistake for another man re cently. He hopes they'll hit the right Naylle on the head next time. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. EOT* H^ILE.

SECOND SALE! 3,000 ACRES. Tuesday. Wednesday and ■ Thursday, April 6th, 7th and Bth, 1875. The Directors of the Los Angeles Immigra tion and Land Co-operative Association would announce that at their late sales over 1.800 acres of land was sold; the greater part of whi ii went to actual settlers who will im prove the same at once. Desirous of disposing of the remaining lands —nearly 2,000 acres—in order to make the set tlement as strongas possible, and at the same time give the Association an opportunity to subdivide other ranches, Lie managers now offer at, Public Auction, the remaining lands, on the 6th, 7th and tjih of April, 1875, when the purchaser will be allowed to take the lands In parcels to suit At their own Figures. The entire tract will be sold without reserve. A Public School bulldlug, to cost over 84,000 is now being erected and will be completed before the second sale. The percentage of the last sale devoted to the erection of t his build ing amounted to over $2,000, and tiie same percentage (10 per cent, on town property and 2% percent, on firm property) will be given for the name purpose from the proceeds of the next sale. Soil. The soil is of a rich sandy loam and free from alkali. There ure two or three small pieces of alkali ground on the tract, but they will be pointed out to purchasers so that they may know what they are buying. The char acter of the soil is more like the warm mesa lands of the country, than the low, damp corn lands. Semi-Tropical Fruits Will there And a combination of soil,climate and water well adapted to their rapid growth. These lands are not entirely free irom frosts, but the cold Is uot severe enough to injure the fruit trees, and rarely Water. The great desideratum of Southern Califor nia, without which the richest, land Is con verted into a desert, and with it the desert is converted Into a garden, is here easily obtain ed in great abundance, surface wateris found at adepth of ten or fifteen feet, and Flowing Artesian Wells Can be readily and SUKELY obtained at a depth of from one hundred and thirty to two hundred feet. There are many flowing wells in the Immediate vicinity, and within the ar tesian belt no failure to get flowing water has ever occurred. Responsible parties propose to sink artesian wells everywhere on the tract and guarautee water or make no charge there for. The town of ARTESIA Has been laid out on the township line three miles South and three-quarters of a mile West of Norwulk Station. A quarter-section of land is Included within the town plat. It Is tbe in tention to make this town the center of one of the richest farming communities in T.OB An geles county. At the last sale, town lots sold for from $60 to $161 each, and many have since changed hands at advance d figures. Arrangements are now being mads for the establishment of a Methodist Episcopal Church, and the erection of a house of wor ship. A lot will be given to any Church or Society that will erect thereon a buildiag for public use. PUBLIC SALE. These lands will be offered at Public Auc tion on TUESDAY.WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY, April «th, 7th and Bth, 1875, Thus affording settlers an opportunity to pro cure homes at THEIR OWN FIGURES. TERMS. The terms of sale are as follows: FIFTEEN PER CENT, down, TEN PER CENT, m six months, TWENTY-FIVE PER CENT. In one year, TWENTY-FIVE PER CENT, in two years, and TWENTY-FIVE PER CENT, in three years.

During tho sale free transportation will be furnished those in attendance, from the ears to the lands and return, and reduced fare for the round trip will be secured on the railroad from Los Angeles and return. TEMPERANCE. Believing that the sale and consumption of spirituous and malt liquors In the settlement would be productive of much evil continually, and no good, the Association will insert a clause In all deeds prohlbitlngforeverthesale of Intoxicating drinks, as a beverage, on the lands sold. Plats of the lands and further Information can be had by calling atthe office of the Asso ciation, IV, SPRING STREET, LOS ANGE LES.
