Christmas Ball.— The Sacramento Turn Y_rein gave its twenty-seventh annual ball Saturday evening at Turner Hall. It drew the largest company ever assembled at any of these anniversary entertainments.

Heilbron ; the floor managers E. Hagelstein, H. Stober and Charles Flohr, and the reception committee O. G. Hartig, L- Lothammer, H. Goepel, Aug. Lave, A. Lothammer, K. Nobel, G. Hagelstein, J. Weizel. For the pleasure of their guests the Turners had a handsome Christmas tree set up in the center of the ball, from which some presents were distributed of mirth-provoking character.
