  • Willis F. Gross, member of the board of lectureship of the Mother Church, the First Church of Christ Science, in Boston, Mass, lectured on Christian Science at Page Theater last evening. Mayor M. Purdin in introducing the lecturer said in part:
    "A good many of you, like myself, probably know very little about Christian Science, and likely all of us would know more if we attended their meetings more than we do and would be greatly benefitted by the things we would learn in attending the meetings."

    Thieves who broke into a boxcar in this city Sunday evening scattered their loot over a large area of Jackson County. This morning three rolls of butter were found in this city, three slabs of bacon at Phoenix, and a ham at Bear Creek Junction. It was first thought the job was the work of boys or tramps, who are generally blamed for all depredations, but evidence points to citizens not classed as such. S.P. detectives and the police are working on the case.

    LOS ANGELES, Cal., April 7 — Police detectives raided a "strip poker" game in the fashionable West End district today and captured three young girls and three youths in various stages of undress. The girls were booked at the station as delinquents under the names of Leona Parke, 18; Alma Taylor, 17 and Peggy Brown, 19. Later they were allowed to go to their homes. The men were not arrested.
    According to the arresting officers who watched the game through a window, all the party apparently had been losing heavily. As hand after hand was played the officers grew firmer in their opinion that the time for action was near. They entered the room, they said, when one of the fair gamblers would have been absolutely broke had she lost another "pot."
    All of the girls concerned, according to rumors, are known to younger society people here.
