His happy prelude in which he twitted the committee on their management is a sample of his good humor. He ad- , vised to henceforth leave out all such cheap men as himself and get only high-priced talent, even though they 1 faced bankruptcy in the venture, j He then donated the comrpittee a I rebate of $lO to liquidate their sn- | debtedness, allowing them to make a clean profit of 16 cents. Rev. Burdette was accompanied here by Charles F. Holden of Pasadena, a distinguished authority on fish life. The dance Saturday evening in the opera house drew a good crowd, * about 45 couples being present. The prize waltz was announced at abou...
