Are Being Offered For Sale.
LI I PI I A 1-5 1 AOP Embraces 12 acres of nicely-rolling ground, situated fronting Highland Avenue, near Highland Park and the
J 1 JuJL-" ,1 .L-rf.r"kv Grand Gateway to the.Park, soon to be constructed at a cost of $100,000 or more, and to be a model of archi
tectural beauty. The tract is subdivided into 57 large, well-proportioned, evenly-graded lots, fronting on broad curbed, asphaltum paved and sewered ave
nues and streets, bounded by wide concrete sidewalks, with spaces on either side' of the same for shade trees and borders-of grass.
The Plan is bounded on three sides by Highland avenue, Bryant street and Callowhill street, and bisected by Elgin avenue, Euclid avenue, St. Clair
street, Mellon street, Mildred alley (30 ft wide), Azimuth alley and Maringo alley. In addition to a .choice frontage, each lot has a roomy, convenient rear
outlet The system of sewerage is most elaborate and complete, reaching to every lot. The grading of the grounds, as well as of the streets and alleys, evi
dences a feat of engineering skill. The curbing, paving and sidewalking are of the most durable and artistic kind.
EASY ACCESS, GRAND OUTLOOK, HEALTHFUL MR, NO FOGS.
By a gradual incline an elevation is reached here above the unhealthy fogs and dampness of the lower
valley, where the air is always pure and exhilarating, and from whence a wide and pleasing view is obtained
over the richest scenery in the East Liberty district Bryant street intersects Highland avenue at the corner
of the property, and both thoroughfares are traversed by the Duquesne Electric line, the cars marked
"Highland Avenue" being through cars, 'and the Bryant Street line issuing for a single fare transfer tickets
over any of the three cable and electric lines, so that it may be truthfully said that all eastwardly rapid
transit lines lead to and from LUELLA PLACE.
THE ST. GLAIR STREET INLET TO THE PARK.
Within a brief period St Clair street, running from North to South, and dividing the Plan near its cen
ter, will be opened and finished into the Park and extended to Penn avenue, in East Liberty. It is proposed
to make St Clair one of the finest driveways and residence streets' in the city, and it will soon compete with"
Highland avenue for the fashionable travel to and from Pittsburg's favorite resort i
NEGLEY AVE., THE GREAT INTER-RIVER THOROUGHFARE,
Lies two squares west of LUELLA PLACE, and will be tapped within that distance by both Elgin avenue
and Callowhill street adding greatly to the accessibility of the property, particularly from the North, to its at
tractiveness, and immeasurably to its future value.

HARMS' THEATER. AugltStlO StUTllle
BUOU THEATER APAlrofKids
Above are the theatrical attractions for
The Isle of Champagne.
The first comic opera or the season Is al
ways sure o arosal welcome in Pittsburi,
i and this liappy fate Is in store for "The Isl
I Arni..M.....(i . i. ... t..
ui Vtiuui(JilKUO, WU1BI1 OOUlOS IU (IIO Lil
qnesne Theattr next wock Abnuitlieoprra,
which is only a few months old. It is known
that It plaed with sucees against the Dem
ocratic Convention in Chicago, that it
pleased the cultured theater-goers ol Bos
ton, and has been praised pretty generally
where er it has been produced. Tfhen you
take up a programme of comto opera these
daysyor fiist glance natuially seeks the
name or the chief comedian. The major part
of modern comIcopera is faroe.consequontlr
the comedian is onlefly rcspoaiibls for the
success or failure of the niece. Thomas Q.
Seabrook holds this hltrh and m ghtr posi
tion in "The Isle or Campagne." Mr.
Seabrook's rise has been as rapid as
his deserts merited, and Pittsburg two years
ago snowed its appieclatlon of his talent by
lauglilnc heartily at all he did la "Castles in
the Air." It is said that his opportunities
are ar greater in this new piece, and the
chaiacterof the Km: of an island, over
looked uy ceographers, where sparkling
oUamparna spouts from the gniun 1 and
forms the rlvrrs. is said to suit Mr. Sea
brook to a nicety. From a synopsis of the
plot whioh I have seen I should judge that
the piece is as frothy, and may well be as
sp&rklinx as the wine mentioned in its title.
It Is nromUed that the sosnarr showinc all
eldrs or this peoullar tropkai island Is ex
ceedingly beautliul, and the many pretty
women who form the majority of the com
pany are said to sport erery onlor of the
ralnoow In their rich latiuent. Ol coarse,
with this as itb every new Dleco, we can
only take what other poople say as a tulde
to its n erlt, but I think it is fair to expect
that the dialogue of Mr. Byrne and the
music of Mr. Furt will he at least up to the
average, and I hn e no doubt at all but that
Mr. Seabrook will be very funny.
Old Jed Prouty.
Richard Goldon's ambition to reproduce
upon the stae one of the quaintest types of
pnrely American charaoter has always
seemed to me to be highly laudable. "Old
Jed Prouty," the landlord of a New Eng
land tavern, is close enough to nature to
stand as a representative American. No
doubt it is a olo.e study from real lite, and
this kindly old fellow with his quaint man
ner of ppeech, his angularity, and artless
domesticity makes a very pretty picture
upon the stage. It is true, also, that the
play, while it is not charactetized by any
ost Charming Residence Sites in
flnshes of genius, and has some very weak
points in construction is a wholesome and
amusing story. I see that Mr. tiolden has
again called to his side Uoia Wiley, "The
Sweet 8lngor or Maine," and she may be ex
peoted to lend her melodious voice to the
production. The new point about "Jed
Promy" this time, is Its soenery,
which forms a series of striking
stage pictures. It is said, one of which
showing the old tavern on a moonlit
night, In winter, with the Penobscot Vallet
in the distance, is especially praised, as an
additional attraction at the Wednesdar and
Saturday matinees a beautiful souvenir
spoon will be given to every lady in the au
dience. The Alvin Thentor Is fortunate in
presenting such a wholesome play, and the
theater ouirht to be crowded this week as it
Mr. Keenos Awaking.
It looks as if Thorn is W. .Keene had real
ized the importance of surrounding himself
with better mateiiai than has been his wont
hitherto in the way of aotois. When ho
played here the other day I "tizgestt-d that
Mr. Keene ould find it a protltablo invest
ment to strengthen lili company. Hn has
very wisely done so. He has engaged Maldn
Cralgen as his leading lady and Fre I Pauld
ing ii to join the cO'upany next week in
Cincinnati. Miss uraigen anu Jir. rauiuing
have had good training and are actors of
considerable acuity. Another step In too
right dlrect'on i being laken by Mr. Keene
in giving his productions sp. clal scenery.
The latest frek in the way of realism
nponhe boards is a feature ot the comedy
"The New Wing" lust pioduced In. Boston.
In one of the scenes a room is papered in
fnll sight of the audience a great deal faster
than it Is ever don in real life. At 0.
Wherlan is the papnrhanger, and is slid to
make the o aractor most amuMng. Tno idea
of making papoi-hanging nrmis.nu t any
bodj Is certainly unique. When the paper
hanger gets Into the liou-o you may usually
look out or moie or lesi ot a trae ly.
Papering a houso Is usually anything but a
lau hlng matter to a mnnager. lor it means
passes instead ol pelf In his coffers.
Pittsbnrg is the home of a good many
olever actors. I was reminded of this by
the clever psrformancaoi Mr.Fin Reynolds,
a native of this city, in the character of a
tramp in "The Pay Train." - Mr. Reynolds

Sllss Marie BnrresB continues to leflect
credit on Pittsburg, where she wasbotn, by
the hleh charaoter and attlstlo excellence
ofherwork as a member of the Bo-ton Mu
seum Stock Company. Another Pittsburg
I'lrl wbote future Is brightening all the time
Is Miss Lulu Gla-er, who Is novrpermanent
ly installed as soubiette In the Francis Wil
son company. Miss Gertrnde Hopkin,
whose family Is well known here, may also
be expected to make her mark as one of
Pittsburg's champions behind the root
lights. She is at present resting in this city,
but will probably acoept an offer tojoin one
of the best legitimate companies now on the
road. She made quite a hit last season on
the Pacific coast in leading parts, and as she
combines youth, L'ood looks, bruins, and,
what is better than all In a young actres, a
desire to learn by hard work everytnliu that
is needed to secure success upon tho stage,
oho ought to succeed.
The Eagle's Nest.
A well-known star, Edwin Arden, sup
ported by an unusual cast that Inoludes
frank Losee and Marlon Elmoie, will ap
pear at the Grand -Opera House this week.
Mr. Ardeu's manager this season Is W. A.
Edwards, known throughout the United
States as the business manager or H. R.
Jacobs for a number of years. The fact that
Mr. Edardshas decided to resign from Mr.
Jacobs' employ is an indication tlmt he con
siders that Mr. Ardon Is an attraction of tho
first magnitude. "Eagle's Nest" has not
noen presented lorn number of years. Dur
ing that time it has bean thoroughly re
written and revised, and a number ot ster
ling situations have been invented and In
troduced. Perhaps the most electrical
scene In the plav Is wheiethe hero leaps SO
feet Into space. There will also be a flie
scene, a fight In the clouds, a rain and a
snon storm and a thundeibolt. It is conse
quently to be aeen that there will be olenty
ot incidents In "Esrle's Nest," whlofi used
toplene Pittsburg auUIencos when it nas
seen heie before. '

this abnormal development sne is said to be

traction ntihe World's Museum, for In the
theater Salisbury's variety stars will give
nu amusing performance closing with a
oomcy farce "Escaped from Quarantine."
The Tar and Tarter.
Those who like comio opera will be likely
to have all they desire during the next
month. One of the most popular shows of
this ktud last senson wn "The Tar and Tar
tar," whioh comes to the Duquesne next
week, beginning October a It will bo vety
close to a new performance too, because the
principals are neatly all changed rom last
jear. Ptrt, pretty and plump Annie Myers
has never been heard in this 0 era heie, al
though fcho made a hit in it on Broadway.
There is one particularly high 0 whioh she
used to strike in singing "Way Down in

Then there is Mde. Cottrelly. one ol the

A glance at the list of people Tony Pastor
nrings with him to Harry Williams' Acad
emy ot Music this week is about all that is
required to size up the show. Tony Pastor
himself Is still a wonderfully strong card,
and none of the youngsteis seem likely to
eclipse him in singing a certain kind of a
song yet awhile. Maggie Kline is Just as
much a queen In her line, and U besides
sometuin. ot a unique n.ure in retntnina

been frequently predicted in theso columns
that Henry E. Dlxey has made a real success
with his levivnls of Gilbert and Sullivan's
operas at Palmei's Theater this summer.
Boghiald DeKoven, the composer, Is an
optimist. He believes that an immone
amount of cultivation is going on In nil

A computation of the cost of the work on and under these grounds will conclusively demonstrate the
fact that the prices at which lots are quoted are notably low, as compared with values held on rough land in
the same vicinity or of a similar class. Everything has been done with a liberal hand to fit the grounds per
