Cross tendered them a delightful surprise parly Tuesday night In honor of their thirteenth wedding anniversary. After the merriment iil.tending the arrival of the unexpected guests had been expressed,the party adjourned to the Fraternal Brotherhood hall, where dancing and games were enjoyed and where refreshments were served. It Iw reported that nearly all of the sixth division of the Baldwin ranch, which was recently put upon tho market, haa been sold. The cltl/.ens of this vicinity are greatly aroused over tho numerous fires that huvo destroyed so many tons of hay recently. The first of these strangely originating fires destroyed fifteen tons of hay belonging to 10. T. Coffmiin of Irwlndalo. Last week three (ires occurred, Mr. Oxarat being the heaviest loner, his forty tons of baled hay being valued at $-100. Mr. l-'errero also lost, forty tons of loose hay and the Baldwin estate a large slack containing twenty tons. On Monday evening of this week It was discovered that alfalfa hay belonging to G. 10. Cross was afire. The hay had only been billed that day and was divided into two stacks. By dint of much hard work one of Hie slacks was snved, so that Mr. Cross's loss amounted to only about thirteen Ions. It Is the general siipposit Ion that the IIres nre of Incendiary origin and a sharp outlook Is being kepi fur the offender. Geo. Liiwson Is Installing a pumping plant on his properly east of here.
