The tirat intimation the jailor hud of the matter was hearing the song, " Rock of Aea," howled forth about 9 o'clock last Thurs day evening by the prisoners, the former Jones acting as leader. The singing was kept up for early two hours, and there was a regular quartette leadiug ia the songs, which were rendered with fine effect. THE MEETING LAST NIGHT. List niuht a regular revival was in progress until a late hour. Jones, the forger, led the affair aud acred as exhorter. Mr. Pritchard, the slayer of Syuus, sang the hymns, and a AMUSEMENTS. Reform Club Entertainment. The per formauce given by the Reform Club last night at popular prices drew a packed house as usual. The song, "Twilight Falls," by Miss Mary Wilson, was indeed a vocal genu. The younz lady is gifted with a rich contralto voice, which is fairly loaded down with melody, reminding one of a musical instrument. Sam Morris next entertained the audience with some excellent German specialties. Mrs. J. P. Winnie sani: '-Willie Boy Come Hoaie" with pleasing effect, and also "Home of Sweet Repose." Mrs. H. H. Howe gave a de lightful rendition of ''Annie a' the banks c' Dee." Mrs. Larowe closed the first part with an affective rendering of the poison scene from Romeo and Juliet. The entertainment closed with the roaring burlesque, entitlei A Skaksperian Muddle, a lecal farce written by W. S. Byrne. Such burlesques as a rnle are STOCKS.

I don't agree with B. Frank nn at all, tnat Honesty glioma oe a policy dodge. If a man's honest, he's honest any how, and if he just simply keeps correct from policy, he's a bad egg at heart and only wait ing to get the confidence of the community and rob them out of thousands. A voice correct. one otten meets men wno are regular thieves at heart, but stay square, not because they think it is the right thing, but so as to get a good standing in the community Just as soon as the pile they can get their claws on reaches their fingers, they muzzle it and skip the gutter as quick as the fires of Inferno can scorch the tail feath rs off a gnat. The speaker a interrupted by cheers and paused to wet his throttle with some water. A man who is honest from policy would steal if he had the nerve and the chance. We fellows in here were cursed with rather too much nerve and we're too candid to conceal our rel character Here a sneak thief sitting in the far corner of the corridor rose and j asked if the preacher proposed to indulge in personalities in his discourses. If so he wanted to give up his pew. He was immediately re buked for his unseemly endeavors to disturb the meeting and sat don. VOCAL EXERCISES. The sermon made a profound impression on Charles Van Gorder, the opium smoker, and he broke forth with, "We will Gather at tie River, "(in which all heariily joined. After this the whole crowd sang almost anything they could think of in the shape of populor melo- ! dies both secular and religious. The secular sougs, however, did not find much favor, and "The Sweet Bye and Bye'' was sung; the bal ance of the music was of a deeply religious J character and sung to, in a style that would reflect credit in a church choir. The men I seemed to enter into the true spirit of the thing and their rich voices exchoed strangely in the heavily walled prison until quite a crowd collected in the Sheriffs office. Jones who seems to be the prime mover in the mat ter, announces that he proposes to keep up a regular revival during his stay there. Six shooter on thb Contribution Plate It was only last Sunday, and the unfortunate man was sitting pretty well up toward the chancel. He was a pious-looking, nice old p.irty who loved to get up bo close to the sane turn that the drippings f the truth would fall upon his bald head. When the plate was passed around he went down into his front pocket for some change, but after exploring its inner depths he found Hothing. The plate was getting pretty close to him and he hur riedly thrust his hand into his hip pocket aud gave bis nanukerchiet a tug. the kandker- chief ca:ne oat and with it a formidable look ing six-shooter, which fell with considerable noise upon the floor and attracted the atten tion of the congregation for several pews around It is probable that no man on earth was ever more coufused than this unfortunate and absent-minded man. The plat was riuht under his nose. He gave the h::i.dkerchief another dip aud out came half a dollar falling alongside the six-shooter. He reached for both, and in a moment of desperation grabbed the six-sheoter and laid it on the plate while he pocketed the half dollar, first attempting to set it at half cock for safety. By this time the poor sexton was in as mucli of a state of confnsion as anybody. He considered that everything that was put on the plate was sacred and so he went right on from pew to pew, poking the plate wi h the large IXL six-shooter on it, und r everybody's nose and frightening the timid members ef the nock almost to death. Sev eral old fellows who had been in the habit of paying money at the muzzle of a pistil in early days imagined for a moment that it was a hint to come down heavy, and cast their gold on the plate lavish handed. The offeratory was the largest ever known in the church and the old fellow who made the blunder has never dared to demand his gun bak. The effect was so satisfactory that the advisability of having the sexton take two six-shooters with hiiu whenever he takes up a collection is seriously considered.

Officers Dun can and Hawthorne have finally succeeded in getting a Chinese opium smoker, as one might remark, "dead in the door." Night before last they employed a young man to go into an oium den kept by Jim Gaige, a Chinaman who has long been a deiler in the drug but has always been able to evade the officers, The boy paid the Chinaman four bits for a quantity of the drug, while the officers watched the transaction through a crack in the house. They then pounced down upon the astounded heathen and placed him under arrest. When the trial comes off he will duubtless escape on some technicality. His bail was fixed at $200. Powbr of Paper over Iron. Yesterday afternoon a dispute arose in the Appeal office as to whether or not a nail could be driven through a book. One of the compositors ac cordingly tried to drive one through a volume of Congressional Globes about three inches thick. A little hole was made to give the nail a start and then it was struck with a six pound hammer. The nail went through the book and was then, after considerable diffi culty, pulled out, twisted into the shape of a corkscrew. It was turned in a perfect spiral and twisted six times. The nail can be seen at the Appeal office by any one who doubts this statement. ALWAYS AHEAD!

The State Prison birds were, John Dunn, convicted of rand larceny and sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment; Johu Tappan, bur glary, one year; Geo. Kennedy, burglary, two years. The committee appointed from the Grand Jury to investigate the Sheriffs office took charge of the books yesterday. Dr. D. Banks McKenzie will open his tem peranco revival in Carson to-morrow night at the Opera Hoase. The U. S. Circuit Conrt, Judge Sawyer presiding, wifl meet in this city one week from to-morrow. Prikbyterian Cmurch. Services at 11 a. M. and 7 P. M' Sunday School at 12:13. Lopes, the Elko murderer, has been found guilty of murder in the first degree. More Spiritualistic exposers are expected in Carson soon. Judge Belknap was in the city yesterday. when a boy rushed out and stretehod himself on the wheel of ou of the wagons in the shapo of a letter X. In this position he al lowed his body to turn round with each revo lution of the wheels, yelling with delight. As soon as the balance of the gang saw him do this they made a rush for the wagons, and in another minute each boy had appropriated a wheel and was going round and round with it The sight attracted the attention of the pass ers-by, and when the teamster looked back and saw how the beys were fixed on his wagon he seemed petrified with astonishment and stopped his mules just as the wagons were in a puddle. As luck would have it, most of tho youngsters stopped with their heads down and considerably frightened, they foil off into the puddle. Then they all rushed up to the teamster and swore and yelled at him for play ing them such a mean triok. The boys do this quite frequently and think it prime fan. About a year ago a boy in San Jose had his neck broken by this means. As a rule, how ever, these accidents do not amount to much, as boys who indulge in sneh pastiiuo can easily be spared from a community of this size. Wants d.

Yesterday lorning about 1 o, clock, a young man who was skylarking in a house of ill repute, kept by Miss Stein, had the bad luck to break his leg. It appears that he wished to give the inmates of the es tablishment a touch of his prowess as an athlete and accordingly assayed to turn some somersaults over a chair. After executing a few flip flaps he became emboldt-ricd by sue cess and attempted to turn a double somer sault. He did not quite succeed in accom plishing this feat and landed on the floor so violently as to cause a fracture of the leg be low the knee. His ankle joint was also dislo cated. His injuries were dressed by Dr. Smart and he is now getting along quite comfortably. His name is withheld from print out ef con sideration for the feelings of his mother-in law who lives in Louisiana. A Dry Goods Dream. A woman who goes into M. Cohn's emporium drifts off into a dream of rare and beautiful feminine finery. She sees the best products of foreign looms piled up on the counters, laces, draperies, llusiens and elegant toilette materials, such as only the rarest skill can produce and which women of taste admire. The seoret of the success of this house lies in the fact that M. Colin knows how to select the best and is never imposed upon by the eastern houses who work off their inferior goods on inex porieneed persons. Cases Set. In the District Cam t yesterday the following cases were set for trial; Love- joy, Wonaay; Jjincoin, luesaay; YanLrorder Wednesday; Butts, Thursday. ' Orient-Nookday Suit. The Noonday- Orient suit which has caused some excitement in San Francisco during the past week, whs not much of a victory for the Noonday as heir damages were assessed by the Jury ;it $1. The Noonday sued for 5,000, which they claimed to be the value of the ore taken from their ground by the Orient people. The case has been appealed. After the verdict Orient f to 5 ceuis and Noonday advanced to 4. The next suit will give the curbstone specula tors a chance for another turn. Birthday Party. Miss Rosie Reinstein, youngest daughter of Mr. S. Reinstein, mer chant of this city, celebrated her fourteenth birthday on Friday evening by giving a party to a large number of her young friends. The good time indulged in will be remembered with pleasure for a long time by the happy participants. May the little maid live to en joy many more such gatherings. Without showing tho condition of our teeth. Every laugh exposes them. In order not to be ashamed of them let us use that standard dentifrice, SOZODONT. which is sure to keep them white and spotless. No tartar can encrnst them, no canker effect the enamel, no species of decay infest the dental bone, if SOZODONT is regularly nsed. It is a botanical preparation, and its beneficial ef fects on the teeth and gums ar marvelous, as it removes all discolorations, and renders the gums hard and rosy. m7 Attention ! The greatest wonder yet dis covered in medicine is Mrs. Dr. Howe's celeprated rheumatism, neuralgia and tooth ache cures. Would you rather suffer the pain of having a tooth drawn than buy a bottle of Mrs. Dr. Howe's toothach medi- eine? Mothert should not be without it for their infants. A few drops in a little sweet ened water to swab a teething baby's mouth will mstantlv relieve the little sufferer. The medicine does not cauterize, and is very pleasant.
