He alluded to the fact that the girl's life

are changes for the better. The original
ca"»t in this respect was much stronger.
But the chief characters remain in the
same hands, the deacon, the mischievous
youth, the cashier, the bank president,
the cleryman, the old maid, the widow's
daughter and the country soprano. The
play is light, homely, with not much
boisterous humor, but a deal of the quiet,
droll and characteristic wit that could be
found in tbo social mingling in an old
!::!•.'■ New England village. "A Mid-
Hell" is on the middle ground
lie •seen foroe "and comedy, but it
closes like v melodrama. The plot
is simple, probable, and the characters
depicted are not extravagantly drawn.
For the most part they are true to life.
The play amuses without resort to un
real effects. It is clean, and if not teach
ing any especially great lessons, is whole
some in the impression it leaves, for
there is a good deal of manliness and
nobility of character in it, a very pretty
and natural wooing, and is a story of
wrong righted and innocence vindicated.
The piece will be repeated this evening,
and beacon Tidd and Martin Tripp will
make their last appearance here, for Mr.
Richards and Mr. Canfield when they
come this way again will be seen in
some other characters, but in none, we
apprehend, that they can play better.
In "A Midnight Bell" they are inimita
ble, and make the play well worthy a
visit to the theater.
This afternoon and evening will be the
last day and evening of the fine perform
ances of the Lcons at the swimming
baths, but one. Their mid-air horizontal
bar and trapeze work, and their daring
feats in L'Eschell are very attractive and
ought to bo seen by all who admire grace
ful athletics. To-morrow afternoon school
children will be admitted to the matinee
performance for a dime each.
There will be a social dance this ovon
ing at Liberty Gardens, Highland Park.
Prospective Changes in The Over-
If Made They "Will All Bo Advan
tageous to the Traveling Pub-
Hc-Those Talked Of.
The railroad company is again figuring
on making some very important changes
in the passenger time-table. As yet the
matter is in an unsettled state. However,
changes are to be made, and those now
contemplated are as follows:
The east-bound overland train, which
now arrives at Sacramento from San
Francisco at 10:40 p. m., wili reach this
city one hour earlier. In order to do this
the train must leave San Francisco at t>
o'clock in the evening. This change will
be gladly accepted by people who desire
to return to Sacramento from the Bay in
the evening at a seasonable hour.
Then the time of the north-bound Oregon
express will be so changed that the train
will arrive here at 10:oU p. m.. two hours
earlier than it does at present. It will
proceed northward from the city at 10:50
The west-bound fast mail train, Xo. 4,
is on the programme to arrive at 7:40 a.
m. and to proceed to San Francisco at 8 a.
m., reaching the latter place at 11:45 a. m.
This will be a great convenience toper
son- who prefer the later morning train
to the Bay.
Probably the most important change
contemplated, and one which will greatly
please all Sacramentans who have occa
sion to go to San Francisco frequently,
will affect the west-bound overland train
which carries second-class through cars.
At present this train climbs and descends
the Surras in the night and reaches this
city at the early hour of ii:2s o'clock in
the; morning. The railroad people are
figuring to have tins train arrive at Sac
ramento at 5:45 o'clock in the evening,
and depart for San Francisco at (! p.m.,
reaching the metropolis at J»:40 r. >r. This
will enable business men here to complete
their day's labors and make a Hying trip
to San Francisco.
This change is one that has been de
sired for a long time.
Incidental to these changes there may
be some slight changes in the local train

The Stockholders Discuss the Situa
tion—A Xew "Well May be
A meeting of the stockholders of the
Citizens' Natural Gas Company was an
nounced to take place at the Courthouse
last evening. A quorum of them did not
put in an appearance, ; however, so the
meeting devolved into an informal af
Dr. S. S. Southworth, the President,
was in the chair, and in calling the stock
holders to order addressed them regard
ing the work that had been done at the
well at Fifth and R streets. The well is
now \>2o feet deep, and no more work was
being done. A hard stratum of rock had
been encountered, and, in trying to force
the pipe through it by fifty tons of hy
draulic pressure, the pipe had been
broken oil' within live feet of the surface.
This, and the fact that the company's
funds were depleted, caused the stoppage
in the work. Since then, however, he
and several other directors had been ex
perimenting with the gas now flow
ing from the well, aud the experi
ments had been quite successful. The
company's mission had been fulfilled in
part—it "having been demonstrated that
both natural gas and artesian water were
plentiful beneath Sacramento. Since its
organization the company had collected
and expended £8,630. Some difficulty
had been experienced with subscribers
who failed to pay up. Something over
81,000 were due from delinquents, and a
number, rather than pay, had relin
quished their stock. In conclusion, the
President said ihe only matter to be de
termined upon now was whether or not
they should proceed with the work. He
said he had recently been to Stockton and
had examined closelj" the wells there.
He was satisfied from what he had seen
that Sacramento possessed as good, if not
better, advantages for procuring natural
j;as than Stockton.
A general discussion was entered into
by those present.
A letter was read from Otto Grunsky,
Secretary of the Northern Gas Well at
Stockton (the smallest one there) in
which he gave a full description of the
well, its cost, and how it was paying.
This well is 1,640 feet deep, and has a flow
of '.M.ooo feet of gas doily. It cost 914,000,
and each stockholder paid in $283 per
share. Very little of the stock, he says
can be bought now, and that which could
be bought would command at least $320
per share. It was supplying thirty-seven
families with gas, and was paying an
average of §2 50 per share per month the
P. K. Dray wanted to know what
amount of gas was now coming from the
President Southworth said that 1,000
feet were escaping from it daily.
The President, upon being asked, paid
ho thought that the work should be re
sumed —either by continuing the present
well or starting a new one. He thought
thatefiorts should be made immediately
for raisins the necessary funds. Practi
cal well-borers had told him that the
present pipe could bo repaired and sunk
E. J. Croly said he had had experience
as an oil-well borer, and was satisfied
that it would cost more to sink the pres
ent well «*'O feet farther down than it
would to bore a new well. Ho would
sooner put $100 into a new well than £5
into the <..iii one.
Mr. Dray said he would be satisfied If the
company could demonstrate to the people
that there was plenty of gas here. He
<liil not care to make any money out of
the enterprise. He thought that the work
should be resumed, and moved that the
Secretary be instructed to visit all of the
stockholders and request them to take
more stock ; if they declined, to request
them to relinquish th.ir stock.
Dr. G. L. Simmons believed that in
two years there would be a dozen natural
gas wells in Sacramento, and it would be
all owing to the efforts of this company.
lie did not favor Mr. Dray's motion,
however, because he thought a committee
of the directors could go among the
stockholders and influence them better
than the Secretary could. He otfered an
amendment to that effect.
There was considerable discussion on
this point, but the amendment finally
prevailed. Then nobody wanted to serve
on the committee, and the amendment
was rescinded and Mr. Dray's original

Style is the finishing idea in Clothing. The qual
ity of the cloth may be perfection, the sewing and
fixings of trimmings may be the finest, but, style
lacking, the Clothing might look almost as beggarly
as a rag-bag garment
Styles are as various as the tastes the people have
in Clothing. To begin with Boys' Garments, whoever
remembers the styles of Boys' Clothing some years
back recalls the baggy, uncomely appearance of them.
Fit, shaping wasn't looked for. Maybe two to five
kinds or qualities exhausted all there was to look at
Now, with countless styles in our stock, you will come
across Plaited Suits, Double-breasted Blouse Suits,
Norfolk Suits, Coats or Jackets cut in roundabout
shape, in many a shape that words would miss stating
In Young Men's and Men's the same diversity.
One fancies a Frock Coat; the Priuce Albert another;
the Cutaway Shape, in one to four buttons; then last,
the great army of Sack Coats. No more the plain,
old-fashioned sack, with its corners at any angle that
the cutter fancied, but lines of beauty in it. It isn't
necessary any longer to accept either ill-fitting or un
fashionable clothing if your dollars are few.
The sweep of Ready-made Clothing, as we know
it, takes in every man's taste, in style as much as in
the quality of the goods. He can have a Dress Suit
that fits him perfectly in the time it takes him to try
it on; he can have a Working Suit as fashionable as
he wants it. and see hundreds of qualities and dozens
of styles, and can buy one that goes to his shape as
certainly as if made for him.
Style in Ready-made Clothing is no longer any
thing but a matter of choice which style the buyer
likes. The style and fit are ready in our stock.
