Miss Jarbeau in Starlight at the Grand.
When you walk out into the lobby
after the curtain has fallen on the last
act of a farce comedy, and you feel the
lines on your face, made by grinning for
an hour or so, smoothing themselves
away, you wonder what you laughed so
much about and begin to feel a bit silly;
and if you notice, you will find that the
men who have hee-hawed the loudest in
I the theater are the ones you first hear
I say "well, that's a corky piece," or
j "what rot."
But the farce-comedy draws better
than any other variety of drama; peo
ple laugh at it, and pay their- money to
see it, and after all the verdict of the
box office has its critical as well as prac
tical value.
So it is with Miss Jarbeau's Starlight.
It is nothing but a string of nonsense,
some of it monumental nonsense, as for
instance the Jakey Strauss song and
dance, but from start to finish it keeps
the audience in a condition varying
from a smile to a guffaw, and possesses
the remarkable feature of several novel
gags and considerable fresh stage busi
ness. .
Miss Jarbeau is like a glass of cham
pagne punch. She keeps everything
and everybody in a whirl, and you come
away bearing in your mind an impres
sion Of her, in which a saucy face, a
resonant voice, some startling gowns,
shapely legs, sparkling eyes and a
piquant wit are all jumbled.
Mr. Rusel, the Micky Bralligran. de
serves especial mention. His knock
about low comedy role is one which is
usually played to the gallery, and Mr.
Rusel follows out this tradition; at
the same time he invests his work with
a nimbleness of fancy and many little
touches which are as effective down
stairs as up.
The girls are good dancers, and some
of them are as pleasing in face as in
figure, the company contains several ex
cellent comedians", and all in all the
programme is entertaining throughout.
The play is billed for the week.
One of the most popular American
plays opens its season at the New Los
Angeles theater tonight. The engage
ment, which lasts for the balance of the
week, includes a matinee on Saturday
at 2 p.m.
Realism on the stage has been the cry
of the theater-going public for some time
past, and authors and managers have
tried experiment after experiment in
their efforts to supply the demand.
Bronson Howard bore this craving in
mind when he wrote the war play She
nandoah, and the result is one of the
most perfect bits of realism ever wit
nessed. It occurs in the third act,when
there is a gradual change from sunset
to twilight, and then to the dense
gloom of a starless night, through
which old Three Top mountain,
at the far end of the Shenandoah
valley, looms up like a giant shadow.
Presently there is a stir of excitement
through the Union troops quartered in
the valley, for away up near the crest
of the high black mountains may be
seen the signal lights of the enemy,
telegraphing the news of the confeder
ate reinforcements. The perspective
effect is really wonderful, for the signal
lights seem to be at least twenty miles
distant, when as a matter of fact they
are not much over twenty feet from the
footlights. The illusions formed by
such surroundings naturally add a
thrilling leality to the action taking
place on the stage at the time, and
make the beholder forget that it ia only
a play after all.
The Funeral Celebrated Yesterday at
The largest funeral that the town of
Wilmington has ever seen took place
yesterday, when the remains of Collector
Patrick H. Downing were carried from
the Catholic church, at that place, to
the cemetery. There were 150 carriages
in the line, and the funeral exercises
were very impressive.
Rev. Father Corran of the cathedral
conducted the funeral services, and a
most eloquent and affecting funeral ora
tion was delivered by Rev. Father Scan
lan of t'asadena
Mr. Patrick Downing was 57 years of
age at the time of his death, and had
resided in Wilmington since he was 30
years old. He was universally liked
and respected, and his decease was re
gretted by a large body of friends.

The President's Junket Will Cost
r New York Sun. 1
The Hon. Ben jamin Harrison started
soon after undmght yesterday morn n«
J< ? urne - V of 9060 miles, through
twenty-four etates and territories of the
union. For one month and three days
the president and hie party will be on
the BW ,ng of the great political circle.
Ihe manner in which be travels has
been described. Five specially deco
rated and furnished Pullman" palace
cars have been provided for General
Harrison's use. The exteriors are or
namented in gold, and a legend in
KSK .? ,U .„ , ?" erß ' " The Residential
Iram, will inform the populace along
the route what fortunes and what hopes
the gorgeous caravan conveys. First
comes the car Atzalan, containing the
library and the smoking room, uphol
stered in seal brown plush; and this
vehicle also contains the presidential
barbershop. Then comes the dining
room car Coronado, elegantly furnished
in silver and green. Behind the Coro
hado is the sleeping car New Zealand,
upholstered in a steel colored fabric,
and then the drawing room ear Ideal,
which the skill of the artisans has
made a miracle of white and gold en
amel and exquisite upholstery. At the
rear of the train is the Vacuna, contain
ing six small drawing rooms, each deco
rated in a different style and furnished
in silk of a different color; and also an
observation room with fine French plate
glass windows and a platform incloeed by
a richly wrought and highly polished rail
ing of brass, whence General Harrison, as
he is whirled across the twenty states
and four territories in his itinerary, can
inspect his fellow citizens and prognosti
cate the political future. The train is
lighted by electricity and cooled by elec
tric fans.
No president of the United States ever
before traveled in such style as this.
Probably no one of the earth's princes
or potentates since the world began ever
commanded or enjoyed the use of a con
veyance so magnificently and expensive
ly luxurious as that which compre
hends the Atzalan, the Coronado, the
New Zealand, ihe Ideal and the observa
tion car Vacuna.
Jt is not difficult and perhaps not im
pertinent to estimate roughly the costof
the expedition which General Harrison,
comparatively a poor man, has under
taken in the interest of his own renomi
nation. The ordinary railroad fares for,
let us say, fifteen people, over the whole
distance to be traveled would amount to
not less than $4500. The daily rental of
an ordinary Pullman car is $25; for the
Atzalan, the Coronado, the New Zea
land, the Ideal and the Vacuna. omitting
from consideration the cost of special
fittings and furnishings, one day's bill
from the Pullman company would" be not
less than $125, or, for the whole trip of
thirty-five days, $4250. Traveling by
special train requires the use of a loco
motive, furnished at the rate of $2 a
mile by the several roads over which
the special train is hauled. General
Harrison's bill for traction should
amount to $18,100. An estimate of $150
a day for the commissary department,
service and incidental expenses of the
party of fifteen will certainly seem
moderate to any of our readers who
have ever traveled in a style approach
ing that which General Harrison has
assumed for the occasion; and this
would add $5100 to the other items of
expense. Passing over all other possi
ble channels of expenditure, it appears,
therefore, that the total cost of the
journey that began yesterday will be, in i
round numbers, $32,000. We have no
doubt that the figures will be nearer
The alternative supposition, namely,
that the president, not content with
obtaining for himself the lowest
rates to be had without asking
personal or official favors, has
embarked on a career of wholesale
deadheadism, we reject unhesitating
ly. It is a costly journey that the Hon.
Benjamin Harrison has undertaken, if
he travels, as he ought to travel, on an
independent and self-respecting basis;
but it would be still costlier for a man
in his station to accept expensive favors
from corporations which manage to
secure, sooner or later, and in one shape
or another, valuable considerations for
"courtesies" extended to distinguished
travelers. We assume that the presi
dent is paying his way, and we hope he
will get his moneys worth.

The Shoe Department.
We have without doubt one of the nicest shoe depart
ments in this town. We use every endeavor to satisfy and
please our custom, and at the same time aim to place the
best possible footwear before the trade. All our goods are
warranted to wear, and we are ready to stand by our shoes
for durability, fit and service. We carry Men's, Ladies',
Children's and Infants" Shoes, and everything that is usu
ally found in a well equipped Shoe Store.
The Clothing Department.
In this department can be found the largest stock of
Men's, Boys' and Youths' Clothing in Southern California.
We carry all grades—from the cheap to the fine, and dwell
more especially on the medium grades—that is, we offer
goods at Popular Prices, and they are certainly right, too.
The large trade we enjoy in this department is proof posi
tive of the wearing qualities of our Clothing. The fact is,
we give you value, true value. When you come to us you
don't pay for fancy ideas or display. We put all that in the
grade and decreased price of our Clothing.
m •
The Gents' Furnishing Department.
For Shirts, Hosiery, Ties, Underwear and kindred
goods no store on the coast can give you the values we of
fer. From a copper-riveted overall at 49c to- the finest
grades of Underwear, everything alike bears the stamp of
undervalue. We aim to undersell, and we can without any
effort, for we know we underbuy any of the tradesmen who
deal in this particular line. We have the variety, we have
the low prices, and now we ask for the trade. This comes
by itself, prices speak, and send the volume of business to us.
Men's Hat Department.
Boys' and Children's are also kept in this department.
Straws are now the rage. Case after case are daily emptied,
for we are doing the Straw Hat trade. These goods were
ordered last January, while the snow was on the ground,
and when it made one shiver to look at summer wearings.
It was good they were bought then, for the raise in straw
brought values up, and we could never now sell the goods
at the prices we do if we had waited. The advantage is
yours. Come in and see our Hats. Prices will induce sales.
The Household Department.
Entrance head of Dry Goods Department stairway to
basement. This is certainly the pride of our house. You'll
find everything down there. Tinware, Agateware and
Stoneware, Wash Lines, Wash Boards, Baby Carriages and
Infants' Carriages, Toys for big and small, Glassware and
Hardware, such as Locks, Hatchets, Plammers, Etc, Soaps
for Laundry Md Toilet, and a thousand and one things that
we can't mention. In fact, "Everything, from a needle to
an anchor," as the saying goes. In this departmeut, like
all our handlings, we aim to undersell, and we generally do,
too. We can do you good in stuff you need. We are here
to see that you get your moneys worth, and you can just
believe that we keep things down where they belong.
What other store does as much for the people as does the
People's Store? What store has the nerve to riddle prices,
go into new lines, knock high prices from under, and do
battle for the people? Echo answers back—NONE! NONE
Therefore do not hesitate to trade with us. We cannot
keep up fighting constantly for low prices if you do, not aid
us with your trade. If we can't buy our wares iin large
quantity so we can get underprices, we don't want them ;
but what we do want is, when we get undervalues* for you
to help us get rid of them. Will you?

Throat Diseases, Bronchitis. Asthma
and Consumption,
Are being successfully treated by
M. C, P. S. 0.,
137 S: Broadway, Los Angeles, Cal.
By his Aereun system of practice, which con
sists ot proper Medicated Inhalations and the
Bronchitis Is a disease of the mucous mem
brane of the air passage, and ls one ol the most
common of the pulmonary affections. Chronio
bronchitis more often appears later ln life.
When a cold settles on the lungs the disease
either ends in bronchitis or pneumonia. If It
ends in bronchitis It usually passes off as a cold
on the 1 chest, and still the patient does not feel
entirely well. He feels tired and languid, and
is incapable of taking his usual amouut of
exercise, and experiences a shortness of breath
with more or less warmth ln the pains of the
hands. Soon after this a cough appears, ac
companied by an expectoration of thick mu
cous, followed by a hectic flush loss of flesh
and strength, and night sweats continue, when
the patient assumes all the appearance of hav
ing a genuine case of consumption. But this
Is simply catarrh of the lungsor chronic bron
The patient usually dies from exhaustion
and] suffocation, being unable to expectorate
the mucous which accumulates in the passage
leading to the lungs, which in some cases is
sticky and small in quantity, but more com
monly copious, of a light straw or yellowish
Dry Bronchitis—This disease, the very oppo
site of the above, is a very common affeotion.
Very many people, who regard themselves as
quite healthy, are today under its influence,
and are slowly but surely becoming the vic
tims of this treacherous complaint. This Is
the most insidious of all pulmouary diseases.
There may at first be a slight, hacking cough
and an expectoration of a bluish white mu
cous. Ana herein lies the danger. This mu
cous, inhabiting the air cells of the lungs, be
ing difficult to raise, after a time becomes
solidified, permanently obstructing portiuns of
the lungs, causing shortness of breath and a
feeling of oppression on the chest, particularly
after meals or on slight exertion. After a time
the coSgh becomes more severe and comos on
in paroxysms, and as the shortness of breath in
creases It almost assumes the character of
asthma The mucous-membrane also be
comes more and more thickened, which arises
from the frequent fresh colds, and the patient
at last becomes fully aware of the terrible
changes that have taken place and the Inevit
able results that are to follow.
Without courage and perseverance nothing is
curable, but with these, aided with our Medi
cated Inhalations and Compound Oxygen
Treatment, Bronchitis can be cured even after
the lungs are extensively diseased.
