street, near Broadway, giving an account

At the Grand opera house 11. Grattan
Donnelly's farce, A Pair of Jacks, will
open this evening. It is said to be very
funny, and the plot favors that state
ment. The first scene opens in the re
ception room of Professor Jenkins
Queer's seminary for young ladies. Dur
ing the summer vacation "Hetty Hopes"
and Letty Still, pupils, have been left in
the professor's charge. Professor, who
is a hypochondriac with a mania for the
use of patent medicines, has for matron
of the school Pocahontas Smart, who
cherishes design! upon the fortune of
the p' ■iesso'. Ihe m on has a daugh
ter, GlorioF.i, and t ephew, Smooth
Sharp. sßhe professor a *o has a nephew,
Frank Howard, who is in love with
Zetty, the lively >ung maid of all work.
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 23, 1890.
Pocahontas Smart has summoned to the
academy a lawyer, Judge Jack, to make
the will of Professor Queer in her favor.
At the same time the Professor's
nephew, Frank, has summoned Doctor
Jack to treat the professor for his ail
ments. The judge and the doctor arrive
on the same day, andjbeing exactly sim
ilar in dress and nppearance, are natur
ally confounded for one another. Judge
Jack being applied to by Prof. Queer for
medicine, gives him the only bottle he
possesses —a flask of "Old Crow." Its
effect on the professor is electrical.
He summons everybody and announces
that he will close up the seminary and
take everybody to a summer sanitarium
for recreation. The second act is in the
Invalids' Retreat. Mine. Smart is in
stalled as housekeeper, and is still en
deavoring to secure the professor's will
in her favor. The doctor and the judge
appear, and complicate matters by mak
ing violent love to Hetty, Letty and
Gloriosa, and both the doctor and judge
become engaged to each of the three
girls. This complication arises from the
fact that the girls are only aware of the
judge's presence, and the doctor is con
tinually taken for the judge. The third
act returns to the seminary. There the
fact that there are a judge and a doctor,
exactly alike in appearance, is first dis
closed, and the complications are
straightened out. Pocahontas finally
weds the professor, to find that the for
tune that be is supposed to possess is
held by him in trust for Dollie Dalrym
ple, who is supposed to be dead. It is
conveniently shown that Zetty is Dollie
Dairymple, and the fortune belongs to
her. She and Frank are married, the
judge weds Hetty Hopes, the doctor
weds Letty Still, Gloriosa weds Smooth
Sharp, and Pocahontas having bagged
the professor (for which she is sorry,
since his fortune is gone), nothing re
mains but lor the curtain to fall.
The performance tonight will be for
the benefit of Manager H. C. Wyatt,
who has long catered to the amusement
loving public. It is more than likely
that every seat will be taken.
LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Editors Herald—Please give space
to the following for tbe enlightenment of
Mr. Kercheval and others:
The slur thrown out regarding the
taking of the census and branding it as
a humbug and delusion because one
poor "fellah" is left out is hereby con
tradicted in so far as the sixth ward is
concerned. Allow me to inform the
above "gentleman" that the enumerator
called at his place twice on Saturday,
June 14th, and found only a swarm of
bees on his front porch, and as 1 enum
erated Mr. Wadleigh, who lives on an
adjoining place, I must have "shown
up" in his vicinity.
If the people who complain would
stay at home or call at the Bryson-Bone
brake block and fill out the proper
blanks it would save many a wearisome
walk and show their interest in the
work. Let Mr. Kercheval come to the
office and save the undersigned twenty
cents car fare and a chance of finding no
one at home, and the census will be
complete in so far as he is concerned.

Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) cured my little
boy of hereditary scrofula, which broke out
all over his face. For a year he had suffered,
and I had given up all hopes of his recovery,
when at length I decided to use S. S. S. Af
ter using a few bottles he was entirely cured.
Not a symptom now remains of the disease.
This was three years ago.
MRS. T. L. MATHERS, Mathersville, Miss.
In the early part of last year I had a vio
lent attack of rheumatism, from which I
was confined to my bed for over three months
and at times was unable to turn myself in
bed, or even raise the cover. A nurse had to
be in constant attendance day and night. I
was so feeble that what little nourishment I
took had to be given me with a spoon. Af
ter calling in the best local physicians, and
trying all other medicines without receiving
any benefit, I was induced by friends to try
Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) I discontinued all
other medicines, and took a course of S. S. S.
thirteen small bottles, which affected a com
plete and permanent cure.
