The Conejo Indians began a four-days' fiesta at their reservation, eight miles from Alpine, today. All of the old Indian customs will be observed in the celebration, and many people will witness the strange ceremonies.
A.T. Travis, chief clerk of the general passenger department of the Salt Lake railroad, having just returned from a trip to the middle-west, says that large numbers of clubs are being formed by residents of many states who intend to visit the exposition here in 1915, and that California will be invaded by such numbers of tourists that year as will exceed the expectations of the most sanguine booster.
A modern fireproof hospital is soon to be erected on six acres of land recently donated to the Sisters of Mercy, and located two blocks north of the St. Joseph's hospital. The building will command a fine view of Mission valley.
