ping their corn to Mexico. A gen
tleman who has lately arrived from
Mexico informs us that there is a
downright famine in that country.
The government purchases Ihe corn
aud sells it to the people at cost.
It commands eight aud nine cents
a pound. A singular peculiarity of

The highest kickers In tlie world
next week at Wood's Opera House
—the Duval Sisters.
A fair audience greeted "Tlie
Brook," a musical extravaganza
in which Salsbury'a Troubadours
have achieved world-wide success.
It is a charming conceit and is fair
ly sciutillaut with happy hits.
" The Brook" was presented here
last year, but it lacked the strong |
individuality and energy of Mr.
Salsbury himself, who is an ex
ceedingly clever actor and who last
night acquitted himself of a num
ber of thoroughly neat character
scenes. His imitations of Eph
Horn aud of Barney Williams, and
hia metrical narrative of the wid
ow MacSorley's pigs, were all of a
highly artistic and ludricous char
acter. Mr. Salsbury is the master
of very decided histrionic capabili
ties and bis "Tramp" showed that
he can at will assume the pathetic
role witli startling realism.
Nellie McHenry last night was
quite as bewitching as usual. Wei
shall part witli this bright incarna
tion of fun and jollity witli keen
regret. She is entitlod to shine
away up in the galaxy of opera
bouffe cantalriees. Her wit is as
nimble as her heels. We cau only
hope that, as she promised, she
may come again to Los Angeles.
We have no hesitation In saying
that Mr. John Gourlay, in his spe
cialties, is as bright a lad as we
have encountered on tlie American
stage. He is imbued with the very
genius of burlesque. Tbe busiuess
done by him last night was simply
excruciatingly funny. His make
up is demoniacally absurd, and if
we were to hear that obituary poet
ry over again we should take out a
policy of insurance from asphyxia
as a preliminary.
"The Brook" was preluded hy
the spirited little comedy, "Two
Can Play at That Game." It was
capitally acted, both Salsbury aud
Webster devolopiog very respecta
hie powers as comedians and Miss
MclTenry showing that tho sou
brette rolo Is not her acme.
Tho troupe leave to-day fcr
San Rernardino, where they will
play I wo nights.
Where Shall We Locate the Hor
The Horticultural Society ha 9 a
committee of eleven at work on tlie
problem of lintlinis a location for
the pavilion which is to be built this
season, Nearly a score of propo
sals have been handed to the com
mittee which include laud In all
parts of the city from Boyle
Heights to tho lower junction of
Main und Spring streets. One of
the conundrums to be solved by
this committee is—shall the pavil
ion be located within the business
portion of tlie city so that the Soci
ety can secure au income from
rentals, or, is it preferable to take
an outside lot at a lower piice, aud
spend less money than it would bo
necessary to raisa for combined
business and exposition building.
An honest difference of opinion ex
ists in the committee und hence no
conclusion has as yet been reached.
The Society met "yesterday and a
lengthy discussion win had on lo
cation. General J. H. Shields
strongly championed an outside
lot and was backed by H. K. W.
Bent. Dr. O. H. Cougar thought
the Society could not afford
to take a lot that would bo a
dead property fifty weeks iv a
year, aud strongly urged a
lot near the business portion of tlie
city. In this position he was sus
tained by several members. Iv
committee Messis. Childs, Griffith,
Bent and Shields championed the
cheap lot and the majority of tlie
committee now loan iv that direc
tion. Several propositions are now
being discussed from this stand
point, and it is probable that some
conclusion will he reached within
a few days. The Society, iv view
of this state of affairs yesterday ad
journed till Saturday next at 10 a.
11., when it is to be "hoped that a
large attendance of members will
be present to receive the final re
port of the committee. Tlie rais
ing of funds will next be under
taken when a thorough canvass of
this city and the Southern coun
ties of tho State will be made. The
prospects are reported good for hav
ing a pavilion completed In time
fur the Full Exposition, as words of
encouragement are received from
all points iv support of the manage
ment of the Society, and next Oc
tober will probably witness the
most extensive exposition ever
given the people of this portion of
A Central and Accessible Site.
At a meeting of the gentlemen
who are interesting themselves in
tho erection of tlie Horticultural
Pavilion yesterday the question of
a site for the Pavilion was discussed.
A numbernf location? were enter
tained. Among them was the
property belonging to Mr, I. YV.
Hellman, on Haiti Street, between
First ami Second. This lot ex
tends one hundred and eighty and
a half feet back from Main. It is
sixty-ouc and a half feet front ou
Slain; but, about half way back, it
widens to ninety-six feet. It can
be purchased for $8,223, which is
understood to be a very moderate
figure. Col. J.J. Warner's vine
yard tract was also under discus
sion. This site is liable to the ob
jection that is lies too far from the
business centre of the city to hope
for any revenue from the Pavilion
if located upon it. Another site is
the property of Mr. T. D. Mott, on
Alameda street, opposite the lum
ber yard of the Messrs. J. M. Grif
fith & Co. This lot fronts two hun
dred feet on Alameda street and
extends hack to Kise.street, a dis
tance of two hundred and forty-five
feet. Mr. Mott is willing to t ike
$2,000 for Ills lot.
It would seem to tlie disinterest
ed observer that the Pavilion should
be located in the business centre of
the city. In that event the lower
story could be devoted to stores
and the Pavilion proper, when not
in use for Horticultural purposes,
might be leased out for lectures,
balls, theatrical performances, etc.
The Alameda street lot, consider
ing the extreme cheapness of the
property, would seem to bo the
next most eligible site. It would
be convenient to the railway and
the lower story could be made
available for storage warehouses
aud other business purposes. The
low figure at which it can be pur
chased would leave all the more
money tobo expended on the build
We hope that a central and eas
ily accessible location may be de
termined upon, wherever the
choice of the committee may fall.

The following are from the San

Nathan Tuch has shipped 40,000
oranges the preseut season.
W. S. Chapman has set out be
tween two and three thousand or
ange trees on his ranch, removing
a tew walnut trees to give place
for the more valuable orange stock.
Prof. Peck, of El Monte, Is rais
ing twenty-live acres of flax this
season. This industry has been
fostered largely by the gentleman,
as there is no rust to the crop or
insects to plague the farmer.
L. J. Rose is building six miles
of tight board fence, so tight that
it would hold molasses. The paling
encloses 150 acres of corn as well as
other farm products. Mr. Carson
bosses the fence job.
Information is wanted of J. W.
Riddle by his wife, Martha A. Rid
dle, of San Gabriel. When last
heard from he was in Cash Valley,
thirty miles from Salt Lake City.
Please address the above named
lady if he is heard from.
Four runaways this week: Mrs.
Kewen's Lucy, a slaid old mare,
took a naughty streak and smashed
the buggy into toothpicks. Hod.
Asa Ellis' team, of Savannah, took
a bad notion from the flies, and
ran off. A well-digger's team scat
tered and injured the driver's
spine in such a manner that he is
not able to walk; and the Newt'
mustang, on her fifth runaway,
thinking that our brains were too
heavy, rubbed against the editor in
such a way that it knocked us flat,
injuring us bodily from head to
foot. .Tlie man who sold us our
mustang has gone to Mexico.
The Telephone Prefigured.
We find the following, from an
English paper, in Oodey's Lady's
Book for March 1861:
''Have you heard, too, of tho new
American invention—musical tele
graphy? By means of it dulcet
Stratus are to be laid on, like water
or gas,; at so much per annum for
each house! A pianoforte is to be
connected by means of electric wires
with any number of instruments,
and on being played, the sympa
thetic vibration will cause a regu
lar stream of harmony to permeate
every room iv communication with
tlie central depot. A distinguished
professor is to oe kept playing, aud
subscribers are to turn on music at
will by means of a small tap. If
this sounds a little mad, I can only
assure you that it is a scheme
gravely propounded by Mr. Hack
en berg, an American gentleman,
who states his plans to be matured,
and that he is ready to supply mu
sic at a given rate per annum to all
the world. Fancy the 'sympathet
ic vibration' between two kindred
souls separated by an adverse fate,
but who airree to enjoy tlie same
sentimential strain at the same
hour! It sounds like a leaf out of
the Arabian Nights; but £ am as
sured on scientific authority tlint
the scheme is practicable, and that,
with a proper number of sub
scribers guaranteed, it is perfectly
feasible that the very best musical
skill may be brought within Uie
reach of all householders willing to
pay a small additional rate, Hoes
not Goldsmith's Citizen of the
World ask at a ball why tbe ladies
and gentlemen go through all that,
bard work themselves, instead of
paying servants to do it for them?
The labor of 'practicing' at the
piano will, if this scheme succeed,
be at an end; for what young lady
wonlil have tho heart to pound
away at her 'Battle of Prague'
when a professlodal player is com
peting with her in the same room,
and when the superior strains of
such player are to be constantly
heard by the simple process of
turning on a tap? Let me suggest
'Where should this music be? I'the air,
or I ho earth?'
As an appropriate niotlo for Mr.
Hue ken berg's invention."

The Common Enemy.
In order to make headway against tbe
common enemy, Disease, it is necessary
to oppose him with persistence. It vory
frequently happens that a remedy per
fectly adequate to tbe necessities of tbe
1 case, if persisted in, is condemned and
thrown aside beoause a few doses of It do
not cure a malady. How unreasonable
and uajust would such a Judgment bo re
garding Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, one
of the most popular and highly sanc
tioned medicines of the day, a potentln
vlgorant and an Invariably successful
remedy for constipation, dyspepsia, liver
complaint, incipient rheumatism and
gout, Inactivity and weakness of the kid
neys and bladder, and for tbe Innrmatles
incident to the decline of life. No fact Is
better established than the above, yet In
order to experience its truth Ihose af
flicted with obstinate forms of disease
should give this benignant curative a pa
tient trial. If they do, they may rely
upon decisive curative results.
