The show billed to appear In the
H opura-lioilHe will not be there on the Ctli
H of thin month. The' editor would like to
H explain why. Hut wliut's the uso?
B An long as the iinow Is on the ground
LLLt It Ih hard for the scavenger to clean up
H lroicrly, but should nnyono require his
B Immediate uervlct-B notice to the City
H Marshal will be attended to,
H At tho dances in the future wc
H heartily recommend that young ladles
lie the door managers, u they certainly
H fioe to It that everyone has a partner.
H The dance last Friday evening was a
H financial success, but Judge Duulavy
lion not been impressed with the fact
H that It was a matrimonial success.
H We wish the lady who tried to stop
H the boys from smoking cigarettes on the
H Hinge last Friday night had reported the
H fact to Night Marshal Garland or to the
H manager of the opera-house; we might
H havo had a different story to tell, and
H we might not, ntlll It Is always safer and
H best to report unythlng like this to the
Hj liropcr olllcers.
H Wc would respectfully call the ntten-
H Hon of the' citizens to the vandalism of
H Home of , our younger clement; the
B banlstera on the steps by the U I). H.
H church and up to the Methodist church
H ure rapidly disappearing. Now, boys,
H tho inhabitants of Golden Gate Hill will
H Hpprcclate leaving them alone; In
H fact nn effort will be made to locate the
H Vundnl and mako nu example of him be-
H fore Judge Dunlavy.
H - In our talk with the men who have
H liilt the West Dip on account of the cold
H grub nerved there. It appears that no
H one went to the superintendent. Oh, It
fl would have been no good, and I'd been
H fired. Fire and be darned, lie manly
H and state your grievances, give every-
H body a fair shake, and then In the event
H of no redrew forthcoinlliK. then iult.

H ilono Mr. Murphy would have seen to

VENDENCY OF THE TIMES.
Tho tendency of medical science Is
toward prnvontlvo measures. Tho best
thought of the world Is being given to
tho Biibjcnt. It Is easier nnd better to
prevent than to cure. It has been fully
demonstrated that pneumonia, one of
the most dangerous dlscnsep that medi
cal men have to contend with, can bo
prevented by the use of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re
sults from a cold or from nn attack of
lulluenza (grip), and It has been ob
served that this remedy counteracts
any tendency of these diseases toward
pneumonia. This has been fully proven
In ninny thousands of ciihch In which
this remedy has been used during the
great prevalence of colds and grip In
recent years, and can be relied upon
with Implicit confidence. Pneumonia
often results from n slight cold, when
no danger Is apprehended until It Is
suddenly discovered that there Is fever
and difficulty in breathing nnd pains In
the chest; then It Is announced that the
patient has pneumonia. Be on tho safe
side and tnko ChumberlnlnV Cough
Remedy as soon as the cold Is con
tracted. It always euros. For sale by
