Pomona, Dec. 6.—A pleasing feature of the entertainments given by the Daughter) of Ujbecca, ia their hospital ity aod the consequent good cheer that prevails among tbe assemblr. The entertainment given by tbem laat night wae no exception to the rule, and moat gratifying to tbe iadies, to say tbe leaat, waa the large attendance, Odd Fellows' ball being crowded to tbe very doora. The affair waa patterned after "ye olden time," interspersed with muaic and "tbe good things of life," wich in this caae meant a substantial lunch spread by tbe ladies in tbe parlors below. The exercises of tbe evening occurred in tbe lodge rooma on tbe upper floor and were of a very unique character, a maroh in costume and and an "old time" apelling school being participated in by tbe Rebeccas. Tbe costumea were typical of the time from which they were taken, appropri ate, as stated by tbe ladies, both to tbe olden times as *ell as to tbe existing bard times. The twina, Melissa Caro line Thatcher and Ktuily Eliza Brady, were tbe moviag spirits in tbe spelling match. Mrs. C. H. Marahall was the strictly correct echoolmarm and took the usual pride in showing off her pupils.

The city council met laat night witb a full board preaent. A petition aigned by a large number of property owners waa read, asking that a crosswalk be constructed across Holt avenue on tbe north aide of Main atreet. Petition waa received and will be dis cussed later. The specifications for tba paving of Second atreet were read and a few changea made. The matter of etreet culverts was dis cussed at length. The cost of construct ing culverts for ths five crossings will not be less tban $1250, and the trustees thought thia rather expensive. Tha building of valleys across the street was then discussed with much favor. The streot superintendent and oity engineer were inetructed to put in a valley at once across Second street on Main in order tbat tbe public may see and use it. Nightwatohman Scrimminger asked the trustees to allow him additional help during the winter montba. Mr. (iraber moved to employ another watch man at a salary of $45 per m-nth, for tbree or more montba. Hutcninaon moved to amend by making tbe aalary $50. Carried unanimously. There were several applications for the poaition. T. J. Emerick was elected. The latter was aworn in by tbe clerk, and after re ceiving instructions went into immedi ate aervice. Tbe monthly reporta of the city mar shal and recorder were read and re ferred to the finance committee. Tbe trnsteea met last nigbt witb all preaent. A. L. Tufts addreaasd the board witb reference to establishing the new aide walk grades on Fourth atreet. eaat of Ellen. He stated there was considera ble oomplaint among property owners, for they were of the opinion that the grade was being made too low. After oonsiderable diecuaaion between bim and tbe city engineer, the matter waa deferred till tbe next meeting. The younger children of thia plaoe fol lowed the example of the little ones in Los Angeles and several other cities of note and brought contributions to school, Thanksgiving day, ior distribu tion to the poor, notably the kinder garten and younger classes of the pub lic schools wbo made their donationa to tbe young ladiea of the Pomona fruit and flower mission to distribute for tbem, a touching inoldent of the kind nesa that dwells in their young hearta. All day yesterday waa taken up in hearing the caae of David Bowers, who has been charged with maliciously throwing a stone at a passing Santa Fe train and breaking two windowa of the Pullman car. Will Cord, a former Po mona boy, appeared for tbe prosecu tion (the Santa Fe company), and At torney tickles for the defenae. A jury of six rendered a verdict of "guilty aa charged. LUCKY GOLD HUNTERS. Oome of Those Who Struck It Rich In the Victor Fields Wero Poor Men. During tho period of first locations among the rich mines at Victor thero were incidents which form an interest ing history concerning tho charaoter of tho men and tho peculiar circumstances under which they made thoir lucky finds. All of them wore poor, and nearly all havo quickly grown from poverty to affluence, while many others now share the benefits of their fortune. It is well known that the two leading discoverers were poor carpenters—W. S. Stratton, the millionaire owner of the Independ ence, and W. T. Shemwell, who found the Elktou. Of all men known to pos sess -wealth Mr. Stratton is ono of the least pretentions, though ho realizes the benefits and blossings of fortune and says ho will enjoy tho uses of his money to the end of making the balanoe of his life pleasant. Shemwell, owning 100, --000 shares in the Elkton, is over in Honolulu with his family, having a good time on an income of $ 1,000 per month. It is woll known that Burns and Doyle were also poor young men wbo found tho rich Portland mine by the usual chances of the prospector and for some timo were unaware of their good fortune. When thoy had reached a depth of 18 feet in the process of development work, John Human, another poor pros pector, purchased a third interest in tho claim for $300. After the purchase, greatly to his joy and in one sense to the discomfiture of tho locators, an essay from tho oro gave returns of $20,000 in gold to the ton. Immediately af .-er that the partners shipped 10 small sacks that netted them $1,900 cash. Since that timo these men have grown wealthy, and the group of mines belonging to the Portland continues to grow in richness. Many others in the district are now going through tho first stages of such experiences, und there are many moro mountains and hills that will some day be scarred and drilled and honeycombed as Battle mountain appears to be today. —Denver Times.

A Email boy, with no particular edu cation, who enn increase his income by $12,000 in a single year, may claim to be an oxception to the general run of boys. This is what Jockey Griffin has dono this year, and apparently ho has uot placed his services above their mar ket value. He was oomethingiu tho na ture of a "find" last year, when Mr. Gideon engaged him at a salary of $4, --000 for a year's riding. During tho sea son Griffin proved that Mr. Gideon's judgment was oorrect, for he gained re markable proniiucnco among the jockeys. When it came timo to talk about this season's work, it was found that Griffin had been approached by a number of owners, and that Mr. Loril lard had offered him $15,000 to rido for his stable nest year. Ho was re-engaged by Gideon & Daly for $10,000 for tho coming season, an increase of exactly $12,000 over his salary foi the past sea son. It is not to bo understood that this figure represents the entire income of tho jookey, for under tho rules he is permitted to rido for other owners when his services aro not demanded by tho man to whom he is under contract. Tho perquisites of a good jockey aro more than tho salary of a capable cashier or bookkeeper. Griflln, for instance, re ceived $2, ?00 by way of a present, out sido of his salary, for winning tho Fu turity. He Is a sober, well mannered lad and still very young, but ho takes a great prirto in his family and is edu cating his sisters and brothers out of his earnings.—New York Bun. How Sho Kept Her Girl. Sho mado all tho other women madly envious by saying that she hnd a jowcl of a girl; that sho hnd lied lier for four years, and that she expected to havo her forevor.
