Promenade concert at!) i\ M«, by Bartlett *
Mercnth Imam ry Bandr
Admission Day Celebrated at the
Washington Gardens presented a
lively appearance last night, ita capa
cious grounds containing fully 1500
spectators who had assembled to wit
ness the pyrotechnic display. Chinese
lanterns were suspended from the
trees and the new pavilion was brill
iantly decorated and illuminated.
The first rocket sped its course heaven
wards at 8 :l>o and from that time on
ward naught could lie heard but the
hissing of the fiery cobras ami the
sullen boom of miniature cannon,
while the lurid glare of the colored
fires gave a weird aspect to
the scene. The set pieces were
very fine, including a mam
moth and life like representation
of Governor Bartlett, (which, it is
needless to say, was received with
loud and prolonged applause) an os
trich, a grizzly bear and the legend,
"The days of old, tho days of gold,
the days of '4!)."
Messrs. Wilson, who conducted the
display, deserve much commendation
for their successful efforts, and the
long experience they have had at the
Crystal Palace, England, seems to
have served them in good stead.
The proprietors of the grounds,
Messrs. Cawston and Fox, were un
tiring in their efforts to please their
numerous visitors, and after the ab
normal patronage they received last
night they have decided to continue
the exhibitions throughout the season.
After the last firework had flickered
out the vast assemblage adjourned
to the pavilion, where a social dance
was anticipated,but owing to a miscon
eption of instructions the band which
was in attendance had failed to bring
any dance music, and those who fain
would have sported on the "light fan
tastic" were compelled to solace them
selves by a promenade about the
The refreshment booth was ably
managed and a strict rule has been
laid down that no intoxicants of any
description are to be sold within the
grounds, thus effectually precluding
the possibility of any drunken orgies
or scenes of hoodlum revelry such as
too often offend at affairs of this de
With Brass Knuckles.
Guadalupe Castillo took a tour of
Sonoratown last evening and in the
course of his wanderings he dropped
in one of the saloons on Upper Main
to get a glass of beer. Ho proceeded
to leave and as he passed through the
door Mike Nana, who happened to l>e
standing on the outside, passed some
uncomplimentary remark concerning
Castillo. The latter remonstrated,
when he received an apology in the
form of a blow over the left eye with
a pair of brass knuckles. He was
taken to the police station by Sergeant
Jeffries, where he sat bleeding pro
fusely from his wound. Dr. Cole was
sent lor and ho stitched up the wound.
Nana made his escape, but the i«jlice
expect to catch him to-day.

We l>eg leave to introduce ourselves
to your present and prayerful consid
eration. We have secured this column
in the HEBALD for one year. During
that year we sliull pay the Hekald for
printing these specials. At the end of
the year we expect that the llekai.d
will pay us for the privilege of publish
ing them. We shall continue each
advertisement usually for a week,
sometimes not mote than three days,
occasionally the same matter may be
printed for ten days, never longer, for
the public abhors chestnuts.
Our purpose is to try and sell real
estate, not on commission—that is,
not in the ordinary sense. The lands
that from time to time we may offer for
sale, will be lands in the sale of which
we will have something more and
dearer than a broker's interest, that is
dearer to the vendor, not dearer to
the purchaser. In offering properties
we sluill endeavor to lift advertising
out of the dreary and in some instances
the driveling ruts into which it has
fallen, and thus deserve well of tho
reading public. Jerry Black—a mas
ter of vigorous English—was accus
tomed to Hay that "the reading of
newspapers is benumbing to the in
tellect." This if not always true of
the editorial and news columns, is
abundantly true of the advertising de
partment. In the presence of columns
of display type, and columns of dry
phrasing, and eolumna compounded
of gush and yawp, the average reader
Itecomes so prostrated that ho forgets
what it is all about: he has a confused
idea that somebody has for sale an
orange grove adjoining Temple Block,
and somebody else wants three thous
and dollars a foot for a brownstone
orchard with a plate glass front, three
miles from the city limits, and bo to
cool otf his half-Cremated brain and
take the tas'ie of bad English out of his
mouth, he actually reads one of Jo
Lynch*! editorials. .
Southern California is supposed just
now to have a boom, and a condition of
affairs Which justifies such rents as are
asked for the rookeries which disgrace
the block bounded by First, Second,
Spring and Main streets does seem to
be a little inflated, but it is only a
seeming after all. In fact, the boom
is only beginning, for as we write
these lines, there are a hundred thous
and people cast of the Kocky moun
tains, who are packing their Lares
and Penates (Lares and Penates,
friends, arc not lunch baskets, but
household gods) and preparing to skip
away from blizzards and pneumonia,
and seek tiiese golden shores.
What do you suppose will be the
effect on a tenderfoot as he rides on a
January morning into the lush and
perfume of Southern California, and
beholds the sunny south of his boy
hood, the New Jerusalem of his the
ology, Hespcrides of his classics, all
combined in an actuality of golden
orchards and flower bespangled lawns?
Do wo not know what the effect will
be ? Why before tlie dust is washed
from his face, and while the ill-cooked
and besmeared food oi his lirst-class
hotel yet mangles in his "innards,"
he will hie him to the nearest real es
tate oilice to purchase a piece of tllis
l'aradise. And he will write back to
his friends in the Fast and advise
them also to come, and they will fol
low his advice, and so the tide of im
migration will flow and flow with
never a refluent wave, aed values will
climb and climb, as does the hunter
with an unloaded rifle when there is a
tree handy and a grizzly bear close at
Our purpose is to help these wealthy
emigrants to health and happiness by
helping them to the ownership of
lands in Los Angeles and iSan Bernar
dino and San Diego and Baja Califor
nia, and even as far north as Ventura
and beyond. We draw the line only
at Oakland, Although we are a cor
poration yet we have a conscience,
and we will not eulogize a place where
they fasten Riverside oranges with
giant cement to scrub oak trees, and
grope their way through the fog to the
ferryboats, wheezing out lies about
We will shortly have two splendid
properties to place on the market. One
is a new seaside city on the California
Southern road, a gem of a place. The
workmen are now busy grading the
avenues, laying water pipes and build
ing a railroad station and bathhouses.
The other is a beautiful valley one
hundred and fifty thousand acres in
Baja California. The railroad engi
neers are now at work planting stakes
for the railroad which will shortly
connect our southern neighbor with
ourselves. These lands are incom

THK TERM CATARRH IS APPLIED TO A
peculiar disorder of the nostrils and ad
jacent parts, which prevalla to an alarming
extent, and is productive of very serious
toe most prominent and characteristic
feature is a morbid discharge from tho head,
varying in its nature at different times.
In some there is an almost constant (low
of clear, acrid fluid, hut ofteneran offensive,
purulent or muco-punihnt, greenish-yellow
matter is secreted, which accumulates iv
tlie nostrils or drops into the throat, neces
sitating its frequent removal by blowing the
uose or expectoration, and often hv both
processes. Sometimes patients feel as
though their bead was in a state of rotten
ness, so great iH the amount of matter dis
charged and so fetid is its odor. The pa
tient is greatly annoyed by tlie constant
dropping into the throat of the morbid
matter from the head, und lis a recumbent
position naturally favors the How downward
his rest is frequently disturbed from this
cause. Many sufferers are obliged to lie Mth
the head very much elevated in order to
sleep with some degree ot comfort.
In others a tough, viscid and offensive
phlegm collects behind nnd above the soft
palate, in the passage between the throat, nnd
head, adhering to the pans v> ithglulsb tenac
ity. Its lodgment embarrasses respiration
and creates a sensation of Irritation and un
easiness in the affected locality, which K ive«
rise to a constant and almost irresistible de
sire to relieve I bat discomfort by drawing
the mucus into tlie throat so as to eject It by
the mouth. This practice, popularly known
as "hawking," is characteristic of catarrh,
ami proves as embarrassing lo the one af
fected as it is disagreeable to those around
Again, the offensive matter hardens and
deposits itself on the membrane in the shape
of dry, hard concretions, which are dis
charged by way of the nostrils or throat in
lumps or fragments of a deep green tint. In
some cases these incrustations accumulate
t.i such an extent as to form a regular ping
in the nose, which obstructs breathing and
produce serious discomfort. So lirmlv do
these incrustations adhere to tho point of
attachment that their removal usually re
quires the most violent efforts; not uiifre
quentlv they have to be torn from the mem
brane. Occasionally a solid cast of notable
size is expelled, on which Iberearegeu.rally
traces of blood, but in some cases the cast
presents a tubular appearance, being of exact
shape of tile nasal cavity. This condition is
Indicative of ulceration, which, in time,
may destroy the bony structure .if the nose
and produce a subsequent flattening of that
Cases are occasionally met w itli in which
a thick, viscid, slimy secretion coats tlie

and feverishncss iv the head and nose—a
condition popularly known as "Dry
The disease speedily extends to the air
cavities of tlie bones of the forehead and
face, giving rise to a diet easing sensation of

the upper part of the throat, above and be

pain obstinately Axed in some particular
part, us in tlie temple, on the top of the
head, al the back of the neck, or behind the
orbils, and, occasionally, pain manifests
itself in the face of so severe v character
that it is frequently mistaken for neuralgia.
The breath is always tainted, nnd al times
assumes mi . xceeding fetid and sickening
odor. In some cases it becomes so revolt
ingly offensive us to render the sufferer an

The nasal membrane is thickened and
conjested, causing the nose to be stopped up,
sometimes on one side, sometimes on the
other, und often on both, giving rise to a
disagreeable, stuffy sensation in the head,
nnd occasioning violent nnd prolonged
paroxysms of sneezing.
The voice ia weak, indistinct and liuskv.
or of a nasal character, displaying a sort of
sniffing quality. Oftentimes there Is a con
tinuous hottisencss and discordance. There
is also a sense of irritation in the part,

or less forcibly, in some eases patients
complain of an uncomfortable feeling oi

constant dryness, for the temporary relief of

Other?; again, speak of a constant laid or
nauseous taste in the mouth or throat.
The stomach generally suffers more or less

The mucous membrane soon becomes
morbidly sensitive to unfavorable influ
ences, and in spite of the utmost care be
comes affected from the slightest causes, so
that at last a breath of wind upon the lining
of the none or throat laconics productive of
a colli, and gives rise to serious disturbances
of the respiratory organs. Thus the patient
is subject lo frequent and repeated colds,
each attack aggravating the disease by giv
ing Ita new Impulse anil involving a larger
extent of surface titan its predecessor, in
this manner the difficulty spreads from or
gan to organ, invading the throat, Inrnyx,
trachea and bronchial tubes, until, en
croaching further and further, it reaches

but a slight Impulse is required to scud it to
