The Sacramento High School had another highly successful closing last evening. Standing room was at a premium at the Metropolitan Theater when the cur tains parted and disclosed the happy party of graduates. The young ladies were all clad in handsome white dresses, and occupied the front seats, while the young men occupied the rear rows.

SOCIAL REFORMS. "Cast Out the Demons, But Spare Our Swine." An Interesting Address Delivered by the Rev. W. C. Merrill on Sunday Last. Tho Rev. W. C. Merrill, for six years pastor of the Congregational Church of this city, preached a sermon in his old pulpit last Sunday evening, and its pub lication has been widely sought. The sermon was upon the miracle of the demons and the swine, and the speaker disclaimed any originality in the applica tion of the text. We give the sermon in full below. The text was: "And behold, the wholo city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw him they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts." (Matt, viii., 34.) Mr. Merrill said: Men bave been accustomed to point to the miracles to prove Christ. I point to Christ to prove the miracles. When you introduce me to a great man, I shall bo disappointed if he do not utter great things. When you present to me the Christ as the nineteenth century reveals him, I shall utterly reject him if he do j n...

8 ROBERT ALLEN DIES. After Weeks of Suffering He Sue- j cumbs to the Hammer Blow, His Assailants Will Now Bo Charged With Murdor—Furlong Must Stay in Jail. Robert Allen, the victim of the cow ardly thugs, Gordon, Haley and others, died yesterday at Stockton from the effects of tho hammer blow he received on the head. Tho death of the unfortunate saloon keeper was not unexpected, as he was re ported to be sinking several days ago. This means that Gordon, Smith and Furlong will be tried for murder, instead of robbery—also Haley, if ho is ever cap tured, and possibly Casey, the informer, too. The facts of the cruel assault havo all been published in full in the Rkcorp- TJnion*, and only a brief resume is all that is necessary now. Early on tho morning of the 11th of May last Robert Allen was ou his way home from bis saloon, when he was cruelly knocked down with a black smith's hammer and robbed of Beveral hundred dollars. The garrotcrs escaped ;,nd for a time tho whole affair was wrapp...
