THE PALMER COMPANY'S ENGAGE-
MENT NEXT WEEK.
An Artistic Pleasure Assured—The Plot
of "Aunt Jack"—News Notes and
After the rather fiat effervescence of
Lady Peggy and the Shatchen, the
Palmer Company will be an aesthetic
satisfaction. Its engagement begins
next Monday evening at the Grand
opera house with Captain Swift, and in
cludes such plays as Saints and Sinners,
Jim the Penman and Aunt Jack. Ada
Dyas, the beautiful leading lady, has
never appeared before in this city, but
her reputation makes her artistic quali
ties known. Maurice Barrymore is one
of the handsomest men on the stage,
and possessed both of talent akin to
genius, and of a personality full of inter
est. Miss Maud Harrison is an artist of
the first rank, as is also Mr. J. H. Stod
dart. In fact the whole company is
composed of the very best material ob
Aunt Jack, the comedy which ia to be
played on Thursday, is termed a farce
comedy, but is not of the jingling-black
stockinged - tailor-made - girl-musical
farce - comedy - hyphenated - nonsense
kind. The New York Herald describes
the piece's first night as follows :
The curtain rang up a little after 9
o'clock on the first production in Amer
ica of Aunt Jack, a farce comedy that is
now making London laugh, with Mrs.
John Wood in the title role, the part
played here by Ada Dyas. The plot of
the piece is based on a number of comic
situations growing out of a breach of
promise case between "Aunt Jack," a
country spinster, and a pompous old
"Col. Travenor." There are a number of
comic surprises that set the house in a
roar, and the dialogue of the piece is
bright at times and at times pro
vocative of laughter. The first act
opens in the law offices of
"Berkely Blue & Caleb Cornish,"
barristers, and "Aunt Jack," who has
brought her country lawyer, Mr. Buffin,
up to London to aid her in her suit,
appeared upon the scene. One of the
barristers, "Caleb Cornich," is a
nephew of "Aunt Jack," and he is mar
ried to the niece of the defendant,
"Colonel Travenor," in the breach of
promise suit. Of course the aunt knows
nothing of the marriage of the nephew.
During the progress of the suit the old
lady, who, by the way, is not an old
lady, becomes engaged to the attorney
for the defendant, not knowing that he
is retained by the colonel, and the at
torney not knowing that she is the
plaintiff in the case. "Aunt Jack's" en
gagement was broken off with the
colonel on account of her singing a
comic song of the music hall type, at a
The third act in the court scene, pre
sided over by "Justice Mundle" and in
which "Aunt Jack" takes the stand and
sings the song, "If You Want to Know
the Time, Ask tho Policeman," and in
which the judge, jury and whole court
join in the chorus is one of the jolliests
scenes witnessed on the stage for a long
time. Ada Dyas made an immense hit
in the part of "Aunt Jack." The
"Berkely Blue," of E. M. Holland, adds
another to the many triumphs of this
careful actor. Frederick Robinson as
the "Colonel," was right in the atmos
phere of farcial comedy. J. H. Stod
dart as "Justice Mundel" was racy and
unctious and Louis Massen as a howl
ing swell, and Chas. VV. Butler as the
country lawyer, were very clever. Maud
Harrison played the part of the young
wife of "Caleb Cornish" sweetly, and
she never looked more winning. Emily
Seward, a young actress of pleasing ap
pearance, made a most agreeable im
pression. Mr. Palmer, who was called
out at the close of the second act, can
congratulate himself on a successful
opening for his present dramatic cam

new plays. Her company, which she is

under the direction of Mr. Hay man,
early this fall.
The Crystal Slipper at the Chicago
opera house is now in its fifth week, and
still turning hundreds of people away.
The critics are unanimous in stating
that nothing like this spectacle has ever
been seen in this country. There are
over 112 people in the cast. This is
another attraction that is booked to ap
pear at the Grand.
"Can you sing?" inquired the dram
atic agent of a hopeful genius. "Like a
bird," came the answer. "Dance?"
"Out of sight," eagerly replied the ap
plicant. "How about your stage expe-.

the famous little star Elsie Leslie, sup"

Manager Al Hay man, with complete
cast and accessories, as was given its
representation in New York. The play
possesses added interest on the Pacific
coast from the fact of Mark Twain being
known in every California hamlet.

Mr. Hayman commenced the over
land tour of Elsie Leslie and company
in the Prince and Pauper in Denver on
July 21st. The play received a perfect
ovation, which was only to be expected
after the immense success it met with
in New York and other eastern cities.
Critics are unanimous in declaring it to
be "the sweetest," the rarest, the pret

expected to prove a great attraction.

dictates of her manager.
Two Courts and Some High Officials
A special meeting of Court Los Ange
les No. 7599 and Court Olive No. 7751
of the Ancient Order of Foresters of
America was held at Elk hall Thursday
evening, for the purpose of tendering a
reception to Louis Thome, high chief
ranger of the Grand Court of California,
and C. H. Bremer, secretary of the
Grand Court of the state. After the
completion of the business of the order,
the members adjourned to the Vienna
bakery, where a banquet was spread.
L. Zinnerman as commissary called on
Louis Thome, who made an eloquent
address on behalf of the order and its
objects. He felt very grateful for the
mark of esteem shown him and High
Secretary C. H. Bremer. Mr.
Thome's remarks were loudly ap
plauded. C. B. Bremer followed,
and gave an encouraging account
of the progress of the order. During
the past eight months the membership
had increased ti,ooo. Robert E. Mc-
Gregor spoke of the enthusiasm which
the members in Los Angeles had dis
played towards the order, and con
cluded with a high testimonial to the
officers of the society. Len Sondberg,
past deputy high chief ranger, made a
stirring address, which was well received.
W. A. Peabody spoke of the charitable
objects of the society and of the good it
had accomplished. Past Chief Mead,
J. C. Neilson, J. B. De las Casas made
remarks, after which the banquet came
to a close, all singing "Auld Lang

California Fresh Fruit Well Received
in New York.
Fresh fruit from California in New-
York brings in shippers excellent re
turns. E. L. Goodsell, the fruit auc
tioneer, sold a car on Friday, July 25th,
which averaged as follows : Early Craw
ford peaches, per box, from $2.55 to
$:i.70. Bartlett pears, per box, $2.80 to
$3.25. Royal apricots, per crate, from
$1.50 to $1.70. Plums, per crate, $2.05
The statistics of fresh fruit shipments
to New York from this state are interest
ing, instructive and prophetic. Accord
ing to Mr. Goodsell, in 1887 there were
ninety carloads sent to that city; in 1888
the number amounted to 150, and in
1889 to 300. Mr. Goodsell estimates that
this season's shipments will amount to
500 carloads, and that next Beason the
number will reach 1,000.
A Tried Remedy for Biliousness.
Those who suffer from disorder or inaction of
the liver will never get the upper hand of the
unruly organ so long as they use such irrational
remedies as blue pills, calomel and podophyllin.
But from the tried and popular medicine, Hos
tetter's Stomack Hitters, they may expect relief
with a certainty of obtaining it. The influence
of the Bitters upon the great biliary gland is
direct, powerful and speedily felt. The relief
afforded is not spasmodic, but complete and
permanent. The sallowncss of the skin, furred
appearance of the tongue, indigestion, COStive
ness, headache, nausea, pains through the rigid
side and shculder, in fact every accompani
ment of the obstinate complaint are entirely
and prom ply removed by a course of this ines
timable medicine, in behalf of which testi
mony is constantly emanating from every
quarter, and from all classes of society.

Mrs. Geo. P. Smooto, a highly cultivated
and estimable lady of Prescott, Ark., writes

my stomach and liver hopelessly disordered.
Nothing I ate agreed with me. I took chron
