Those who have traveled over
tbe State pretty generally during
tha pMt few months say there is
ao question but that Los Angeles
lithe most lively and most enter
prising place of its size in the
Commonwealth. Hard times, it
mall, have been prevalent every
where, and it 1* not at all surpris
ing that they should infest the
SatlMM interests of Dos Angeles
with the rest, especially when
helped along by a big bank failure,
• bad season and monopoly dis
crimination against us. But al
though business has shown some
temporary falling off, tbe material
growth of the oity baa never before
been to stimulated. Tbe very
"meet business blocks and some of
.' the best residences to be found In
the city have been acquired within
tho past twelvemonth. The ag
gregateooat of buildings in course
of erection has never before figured
up so magnificent a sum
lo tbe whole history of
Los Angeles. Viewed in the
light of positive details which we
have taken pains to ascertain, it is
no Idle boast that our city is tbe
moat progressive in tbe State, but

yond dispute. Below we present

says, Scientific Fapors, Biographical Bketcbes

Tales. Stories and Poems. Tbe field of se
lection is very large and it is believed tbat
the Eclectic presents a greater variety and
blgber standard of literature than any peri
odical can hope to do that depends exclu
sively upon home talent.
A kuowledge of tbe current literature of
other countries is indispensable to all who
would keep pace with the progress of tbe
buman mind, and the Eclectic offers the best,
and, Indeed, the only opportunity for ob
taining this kuowledge within a reasonable
compass, and at a moderate price.

W. E. Gladstone, James Anthony Froude,
Matthew Arnold, Cbarle, Eliigsley, Robert

regular articles in the body of the magazine,
there are four original Editorial Depart
ments: Literary Notices. Foreign Literary
Notes. Science and Art. and Varieties.
Witb regard to tbe character or the seJec
lons, tbe aim of tbe Eclectic is to be m
structive without being dull, and entertain
ing without being trivial. While each num.
ber contains something to interest every
member ml tbe family circle, it addresses
Itself particularly to that great body of in
telligent readers wbo seek profit as woll as
amusement in solid and hoalthful literature.
Beeidee tbe 128 pages of roadiug matter,

steel engraving—usually a portrait- -execu

AN OPEN LETTER—IT SPEAKS
Kockpobt, Mass., April 2, 1877.
Mr. Kditqk:—Having read in your pa
per repoits uf the remarkable cures of ca
tarrh, I am Induced to tell " what I know
about catarrh," and I fancy the "snuff"
aud "inhaling tube" makers (mere dol
lar grabbers) would be glad If they could
emblazon a similar euro In the pupers.
For 2b" years 1 sullered with catarrh. The
nasal passages becamecompletelyclosed.
"Snuti," "dust," "ashes," "inhallng
tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work,
though at intervals I wo aid sniff up the
so'cailed catarrh snutt, until 1 became a
valuable tester for such medicines. 1
gradually grew worse, and no one can
know how much I suffered or what a
miserable being I was. My head ached
over my eyes until 1 was confined to my
bed mi many successive duys, suffering
tbe most intense pain, which at one time
lasted contluuously for 1(18 hours. All
sense of smell and taste goue, sight and
bearing impaired, body shrunken
and weanenea nervous system snat
lered and constitution broken, uud 1 was
bawklug and spitting seven-eighths of the
I line. 1 prayed lor death to relieve me of
my sullerlng. A favorable notice in your
paper ot Dr. Soge's Catarrh Remedy in
duced me to purchase a package and use
it witli Dr. Pierces Nasal Douche, which
applies the remedy by hydrostatic pres
sure, the only way compatible with com
mon sense. Well, Mr. Editor, It did not
cure me lv three-iourths of a second, nor
in one hour or mouth, but iv less than
eight minutes 1 was relieved, and in
three months entirely cured, and have
remained bo over sixteen months. While
using the Catarrh remedy, 1 used Dr.
HeroeS Golden Medical Discovery to pu
riiy my blood and strengthen my stom
ach. I also kept my liver active and
bowels regular by the use of his Pleasant
Purgative; Pallet*, li my experience will
induce other sufferers to seek tbe same
means oi relief, this letter will have an-
SWOred us purpose.
