The outlook' lor California fruits in the East was neve v before so good, and it is freely predicted' that this State will Boon monopolize the markets there. J. C.

The Ukiah Silver Cornttfc Band will put in a bid for playing nt thv Twelfth District Fair, which begins at Lakeport on September 23d. The boys furnish first-class music and we hope tli .ey may get the Job. Very slow progress in beung nunde on the several now buildings nearlng' completion on State Btreet. Only a small force of workmen is engaged" on aa >y of them and it is not likely they will" be ready for occupancy befo;:o September 1st. The S. F. Call of laBt S aturday says : " Dr. Edward McGlynn, of New York, who has been up to Ufc.iah, Mendocino J county, on a visit, returned to the city yesterday and spoke in terms of praise of the wonderful resources of California and its climate," We havo interviewed a number of our hop-growers and they all exnress it as their opinion that the hop crop in this valley will be an average one in quantity. It is rather early yet to give an opinion us to quality. Reports from Sanel valley also indicate a fair eroi ( >. It occurs to us that very little effort would keep the sidewalks more clear of rubbish in the vicinity of buildings in the •course of orection on State street. Coin plaint is ospocially made of the condition •of the walk in front of tho new Marks building. Tho contractors should givo this matter their attention. Tho Breeder and Sports man says: "Mr. A. V. LaMott* will receive on August 2d by the China steamer a onto of pheasants to bo placed upon the North Pacific. Fish and Game Preserve near Ukiah. It is his intontion to confine the birds, remove their eggs, and hatch thorn under chickens anil continue tho practice until a good head of gamo can bo turned down on tho preserve, which can bo done in a short time." Wo undorataud that J. B. Sanford has a favorable prospect of getting the prin- cipulship of tins Lakeport public school. Mr. Sanford is a graduate of the San Jose Normal School, besides being a most ox- '-smplary young man, and we can assure our neighbors ihat they will mako no mistake if they place htm at the head of their school. Ho has tho education and a firmness which peculiarly fit him for such A position. The Santa llosn Xeputilican has the following to say about Callen .tho pitcher of the Santa Roans, who rocoutlv spent a short vacation at WlllOA, and who piayed with the Wllllts nine in Ukiah a woek ago last Sunday: " Callen has had a rent and is in good trim. His friends expect him to play a stiff game Sunday. Ed Is tho Napoleon of the club, so far as tlm encouragement of his presence is eoncornod, and with him in the box tho club will never meet with a Waterloo," rSeld, of Ukiah, Mr. Shirpser, of , sleaaure trip on ^ iwutang all tho In iIn.- outskirts of tho pleasant City of Ukiah, Mendocino county, with lovely wooded mountains for a back-ground, and the I rim little countv sent stretching away before, 'itnmls the Mncred Heart | Convent of Mercy amidst a pretty garden budged with cypress trees and bright with Mowers. The Convent—n boarding and day school for young Indies—is under the direction of tho Sisters of Mercy ; null the retired situation of the institution, together with the health fulness and natural hoautv of Ukiah, render it a peculiarly desirable training place for tho young, for to these advantages aro added the attributes of a thorough school. The system of the institution is the same ns that pursued in other Catholic Bchools having similar educational purposes in view. The various departments of oducation— moral and intellectual culture, refinement of manners, physical improvement, etc., —receive, one and all, scrupulous attention. Of course the institution is Catholic. The religious principles, however, of non- Catholic pupils arc not interfered with; but for the maintenance of good order all aro required to conform to the external discipline of tho house. Tho government is mild, but firm and uniform, while the strictest attention is given to tho health, comfort and wants of the pupils. No branch of education is neglected, but especial care is given to cultivation of tho musical tastes of pupils, and the Convent enjoys an excellent reputation in this regard. Painting and drawing are taught by an accomplished artist, and the school is winning much favorable notice by the art works of its students. The course of instruction includes training in religion, orthography, reading, writing, grammar, geography, mnlheinat- Ics, use of the globes, prose and poetical composition, sacred and profane history, astronomy, rhetoric, botany, intellectual and natural philosophy, music (piuuo- forto, organ nnd guitar), vocal music, drawing and painting. Tho annual term is divided into sessions of five months each, the first commencing on the first Monday in September, and the second ou the first Monday in February. Only young Indies bearing unexceptionable references are admitted By applying or writing to the Mother Superior, Sacred Heart Convent, Ukiah, Cal., terms and all other information desired will be cheerfully given. *»* Basetoall at Greenwood. By invitation the first match gaino of baseball between the Greenwoods and Boonvillo nine was played on tho grounds of the former on Sunday alternoon, July 27th. The large crowd present manifested a great deal of interest in tho result of tho game. The Boonvilles were pleased with their reception, and although minus two of their best men and not playing up to their average at the bat, wen by superior fielding.

QUITE A BLAZE. Amos Snuffln's Residence and Contents j Destroyed by Tire. j About 12 o'clock Wednesday night the j residence <>f Amus Simtlin, near (he flouring mill, was discovered on fire. The alarm was Mounded and our fire department and cili/oiiM responded promptly, but tlm lire had gained such headway before it was discovered that their elliu 'ls j ; were useless. The building quickly | i burned to the ground and nothing what-1 ever but a trunk and a bln.nket was j saved. A fino piano ivus among the con- i tents of the house. Mr. Smiffin and his J wife sleeping In the houso and barely escnpiwl with tboir lives. They have not the slightest idea how the fire originated, for the entire place wns wrapped in Humes when they were awakened. We understood there was $)»00 insurance on the houso. The residence of P. R. Klein next door to the burning building was in imminent danger and the contents were removed to a place of safety. Wet blankets and carpets, however, were kept on the roof and this place wns saved. Arrested for Embezzlement. Constable J. II. Carothers returned from Wnstpori Inst Saturday having in charge Hugh McNamara, whom ho had arrested nt the above place on a charge ! of embezzlement. It appears that McNamara, on July 1th, hired a horse from J. A. Conner's livery stable in this placo, for tho purpose, he said, of going to Orr's Springs. Instead of going to tho Springs, however, he went, to Westport, and having no further use for the horse he sent it down to Mendocino to Frank Gorman, thinking, probably, that he would forward it to Ukiah. Knowing nothing about, the horse, and having paid a bill on it, Mr. Gorman held tho animal for the charges. The matter was placed in Constable Carothers' hands, with the result, that McNamara was arrested and brought to Ukiah, and the horso also brought back to its owner. Tho prisoner was examined on the charge above mentioned, and wns released on his own recognizance. IIo returned to Westport pending further action in the matter. A Destructive Mountain Fire. Chas. D.

Tho lending question now is: "Are you provided with it bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, ns a safeguard against an attack of bowel complaint during tho summer months?

The tire burned 'uiKJ ncres of grass in ihe val-1 j ( ley, most, of the fencing, and several hundred acres of valuable pine timber. It took a vigorous fight until Monday to save the buildings from being destroyed. The agent of the ranch, Mr. J. S. O'Neil, will give a reward uf $100 to anv person furnishing him evidence Ihat will lend to the conviction of the party or pnrtied who set the fire out. We believe vigorous efforts should be made to punish all persons who, either through carelessness or intent, causes the destruction of property by sotting out tiros in the hills. Cutting- Scrape at Covelo. One day last week at Covelo, this county, Harry Weaver "orionsly cut Doc Anderson in the abdomen with a pocket knife. At last accounts tho wounded man was still nlivn, but there is little hopo of his recovery. As we lenrn tho story Anderson's wife claimed that Weaver had insulted her, and she so told her husband. Weaver went to her and do- nied tho charge. Anderson, however, got his pistol and went after Weaver. Upon meeting Weaver, Anderson began abusing and slapping him, in the meantime keeping one hand on his gun. Weaver rotreated into a saloon and warned Anderson if he did not desist he, would cut him. Just as ho entered the saloon ho whipped out a pocket knife and made an ugly wound in Anderson's stomach. Weaver wns arraigned before Justice Whitney, who, after hearing the evidence, ordered tho prisoner discharged. Northern California Towns.

All tho schedules of enumerators will be passed on at Washington, and if errors are detected thoro they will ho corrected. At the same timo, the results whon announced officially cannot differ largely from the figures here given. In a private conversation the other day a prominent business man of Ukiah said: " Our local papers deserve tho support of every man in the county. They are directly or indirectly working for our good all tho time. 1 fool that a man who does not patronize his home paper is not a first-class citi/.on, and really not nn American." We have no comment to make on tho foregoing. The DISPATCH has gone out nl this office for a number of years, and nover an issue has left without a good word for Ukiah and Mendocino county. A moiminl's re- floetion will convince any one that the local press does more to advertise the resources of our town and county than all other agencies combined, and ns a common-sense proposition our business men eiioiild heartily encourage that which builds up tho town and county, and noceosiirily their own butincsH. We arc informed that there is considerable discontent manifested in tho Hopland toll road and a private subscription list is being largely Bigned to open tho Squaw creok road to Cloverdalo: about •800 has been subscribed in Clovordale and a considerable amount has been rnisoii at fmkoporr.

This is an outrage on people who are compelled to use this water for cooking and drinking. The Water Company should give this matter more careful attention and put a stop to the practice.
