A Soldiers' Home Inmate's Adventure
with a Stomach Pump.
Jesse Carter, the hospital patient from
'the Soldiers' home, at Santa Monica,
who was brought up to the city several
<iays ago for examination before a
lunacy commission, was sent back to
'She home last evening, after a short con
finement in the county jail. The fact
was discovered after Carter's arrival in
this city that he was not at all insane,
but was making a deliberate attempt at
suicide by starving himself. All efforts
to make him eat proved fruitless up to
yesterday, which was the ninth day of
his fast. Last night a consultation was
held at the county jail, and it was de
cided to make him eat whether he
» you Id or not.
.'Accordingly a stomach pump was pro
cared, and Carter having been securely
tied down, the tube was inserted into
his stomach. The other end of the
pump was then connected with two
pints of appetizing beef broth and the
whole was transferred into the would-be
-suicide's interior in short order. On
top of this Carter was given a fine "egg
dip.as dessert, and he was then al
lowed to get up. A night train took
him back to the home, and it is now
urobable that he will decide to eat as
often as Governor Treichel sees fit to

& EARL INSOLVENT.
His Assets and Liabilities as Shown
in His Petition.
C. N. Earl, a cement pipe manufac
turer of the East Side, has filed a peti
tion and schedule in insolvency in the
superior court. The petition states that
Earl, through the dullness in business
and the fact that he went security for
S. M. Perry, insolvent, is compelled to
threw his affairs into court. The sched
ules show the following totals: Real es
tate, $18,000; personal property, $6,268;
value of homestead, $5,000;' exempt
personal property, $400; incumbrance
on real estate, $5",783.21.
Mr. Earl's failure is somewhat of a
surprise, as his financial condition was
supposed to be of the soundest.
MACLAY TO BE AUDITOR
THK SUPERVISORS' PROCEEDINGS
AT YESTERDAY'S MEETING.
Samuel Maclay, It Is Said, Will Receive
the Appointment—No Action Taken
Last Evening—The Cross Franchise
At the meeting of the board of super
visors yesterday morning, a set oi reso
lutions expressing sympathy for the
children of County Auditor Howe in
their bereavement were unanimously
Yesterday being the day set for the
consideration of the petition of Capt.
John Cross for a franchise for an electric
railway along Mission road, from the
city limits of Los Angeles to the city
limits of Pasadena, a protest was pre
sented against the granting of the peti
tion, signed by Samuel B. Kingslry and
nineteen others, and the whole matter
was continued for further hearing till
September Bth. Without transacting
further business the board adjourned.
A special meeting was called for last
evening to elect a successor to the dead
auditor, but for some reason it was not
convened. Samuel Maclay, a son of
Senator Maclay, of San Fernando, is
prominently spoken of to succeed Mr.
Howe. In fact, his is the only name
that has been suggested so far. Mr.
Maclay has already tiled a petition
with the supervisors, signed by the
requisite number of freeholders, for his
appointment. He will undoubtedly be
the successful man and will be named
as soon as the board returns from its
trip to El Monte, tonight or tomorrow.
Mr.Maclay, it will be remembered, came
within a few votes of getting the nomi
nation for auditor at the last Republican
convention, and soon afterwards entered
the assessor's office as a deputy.
The sheriff will have control of the
auditor's office, under the direction of
the supervisors, until Mr. Howe's suc

AND ATTEMPTS AN OUTRAGE.
A Young Fellow Drives Another Man's
Horse-He Picks Up a Twelve Year-
Old Child and Compels Her to Submit
. to Many Indignities. .
The police are looking for a young
man who succeeded in perpetrating
three crimes yesterday afternoon, any
one of which would send him to the pen
itentiary—robbery, abduction and at
tempted rape. Only a very meager de
scription of the fellow could be obtained,
and the chances are that he will not be
The boldness and dash of the escapade
he conducted, however, would grace the
pages of a dime novel, and the whole
affair makes a story such as one seldom
runs across in the newspapers.
Yesterday at noon W. L. Barker, of
No. 1051 Bryant street, drove up to Dol's
restaurant on First street, between
Spring and Broadway, and after
tying his horse to a post, went
inside for lunch. Half an hour later he
emerged from the restaurant, but the
rig was gone. Barker instituted inquir
ies and found a real estate agent who
has an office across the way who had
seen a young man jump into the buggy
and drive off. He acted as though he
owned the rig, and the agent, notknow
ing the circumstances, made no effort to
stop him. He was described as being
about 30 years of age, weighing about
135 pound and as wearing a dark mus
tache. His hair was black and his com
Barker reported his loss to the author
ities and a description of the rig and
thief was placed with the police and
sheriff, as well as a reward for their cap
Nothing more was hoard of the affair
till 8 o'clock last evening, when the
same horse and buggy was driven up to
the police station by a man and a Mexi
can boy. A moment later Mrs. Black
well, who lives in the vicinity of Sev
enth and San Pedro streets, entered the
station with her 12-year-old daughter,
and the latter told the following story:
Shortly after noon yesterday, while
the girl was down town on an errand,
she was accosted by a stranger in' a
buggy and asked if she did not want a
ride. She accepted the offer on con
dition that the man would let her off at
Seventh street, as she was going home.
This the stranger agreed to, and the
girl got into the buggy.
On passing Seventh street, however,
the fellow would not let his companion
out, but, against her protests continued
the drive until they had reached a point
a little beyond the Nadeau vineyard
station, on the Southern Pacific road,
several miles out of the city. Here the
couple alighted and sought a clump of
bushes a little off the highway.
The girl states that her companion,
after he had compelled her to accom
pany him thus far, threw her down and,
by dint of threats, made her take off a
number of her garments. He also par
tially undreseed. The couple remained
in this place the greater part of the
At sunset the fellow left the girl on
some excuse and did not return. She
went back to the buggy and began to
cry, when a little Mexican boy happened
along, whom she prevailed upon to drive
In telling the story to the police, the
girl said that tbe stranger looked and
talked like an Italian. A subsequent
medical examination of her person by
Doctors Murphy and Bryant proved that
her person had not been criminally
violated. The girl gave a somewhat
better description of the fellow than the
police had been able to obtain, and
every effort will be made to effect his
Yesterday at San Gabriel Miss Lucy
C. Chapman, eldest daughter of Mr. A.
B. Chapman, was married to Mr.
Charles Lantz, the popular young
attorney-at-law, of Los Angeles,
Dean Trew officiating. While yet the
morning sun cast long irregular shad
ows from the foot of the mountains out
across the quiet valley of tbe San
Gabriel, friends of "the belle of the val
ley" might have been seen decorating,
until it was one mass of vines and fl m
ers, the quaint old Church of the Savior,
which, nestling in its leafy bower, is
much like some of the picturesque
chapels of southern England.
The Misses Irene Stephens, Evelyn
Chapman, Clara Stephens and Mary
Stephens, dressed in pure white, carry
ing lovely baskets of the rarest flowers,
trimmed with maidenhair ferns, were
charming as bridesmaids, while Mr.
Edward K. Kellam acted as groomsman.
The scene was one of rare beauty, and
will live forever in the minds of those
who were present to extend best wishes
and congratulations to the happy couple.
The beautiful bride, wearing an ele
gant tan traveling dress, and the groom,
whose firm military bearing, coupled
with a genial smile, everywhere makes
him friends, started south on the 3
o'clock train for an extended tour
through Lower California. No cardß.

the season at Santa Monica was an
oyster party given by the Misses Loomis

About eighteen months ago a small speck ap

it became larger, aud 1 consulted a physician
who pronounced it psoriasis or monied disease,
because itresembled money. I applied an oint
ment, but it spread inn il at last it covered my
entire body. My suffering was something ter
rible, burning and itching sensation continually
uutil it became almost unendurable. I suffered
tortur. s, especially at night, and fortwo months
I waa compelled to sleep witb gloves on. 1 be
came desperate. I would have given anything
to be relieved of the Itching sensation. 1 tried
a number of remedies without any relief. I
was requested to try Cuticura; this I did, and
to my great surprise, 1 was relieved after the
first application I used the C'uticura, Cuti
cuea Soap and Cuticuka Resolvent according
to directions for about four or five weeks, when
I was entirely cured. But what a relief it was
to me after the suffering I went through. I.

Wednesday, Augrust IQ, 1891.
Today we received our first merchandise on the list of our fall purchase. This
season our methods will be somewhat varied from the past. We will present to
your notice immediately upon arrival the various lines of goods that we receive,
and elaborate upon their merit and worth.
You have been informed heretofore that it is our intention to carry a finer
line of goods in all departments the coming season. We feel in this respect just
like a new house starting into a new place with a new business. In order to se
cure the trade we must make the price answer as an inducement, and we are alive
to the situation. We wfll say further, the ratio of profit that we charge will be
the smallest consistent with existence. We have that confidence in our mer
chandise throughout every department under our root that no matter what the
article may be that you purchase, if it is not satisfactory, and you return it in a
saleable condition, your money is at your disposal.
Among other things we received today there was a line of ladies' white lawn
shirt waists that we have placed on sale at 50c. It is needless to say that at this
price they are worthy of your attention. Colored sateen shirt waists, with polka
dot effect, at 75c. Embroidered front pique shirt waists, and plain as well, at 75c.
You can have your choice of a dozen different styles at this price ; none of them
are worth less than $1 and over.
We are showing in this department the nicest effects in indigo prints, all new
styles and designs for this fall, of which we are selling 14 yards for $1; we war
rant tbe color fast and the fabric the best made, even if you pay 12>nC for it.
A line of fall styles in dress prints, new effects, patterns that" never before
have been shown in this market, 16 yards for $1.
In white goods we are showing some of the prettiest styles and designs, prices
ranging from 5c to 35c a yard.
The beautiful cloth known as Madras cloth we have on special sale today at
20c a yard ;it is one of the dressiest and prettiest cotton fabrics manufactured for
Have you seen our show window and the values .we have displayed in it? The
most exquisite line of flouncings, from 40 to 45 inches deep, in nainsook and
swiss, the very newest and latest designs, hemstitched and otherwise, at $1 a
yard; narrow widths to match at 10c and 12>^c; we wiii not say what these goods
are worth, for if you want any it will pay you to look at them; you cannot resißt
We are in receipt of some extra fine black cashmere finished sateens, a supe
rior quality to any we have ever had in our house; placed on sale today at 25c.
In our show windows we are illustrating some of the very prettiest effects for
present wear; all wool, silk and wool, silk warp, serges, etomines, nuns' veilings
and albatrosses, open and lace effects, in black and white, ranging in price
from 50c to $1 per yard.
For young and middle-aged people at this season of the year there is nothing
so becoming or so dressy as cream in these effects. It has the appearance of mak
ing one look and feel so cool, delightful and dressed in defiance of old Sol. There
iB certainly not a material that has such charming effects for young people aa
these soft, creamy materials, and it seems somewhat strange that there are not
more of them seen on the streets or at the seaside.
The price of these goods will serve as an inducement and introduce the sale
here. In eastern cities at this season of the year it is a rarity to see a'dress made
of any other color.
In ladies' black silk mitts we are showing an article at 85c that is a perfect
gem ; very heavy Milanese silk, it is a heavy, black, lustrous, beautiful quality,
will outwear four pair of cheaper ones, and the same time lending grace to the
Ladies' black and colored silk gloves, 75c a pair.
Foster's celebrated seven-hook kid gloves, $1.50; will give you better service
and more wear than any $2 pair of gloves that you can buy ; in black or colors;
each pair warranted and fitted to the hand.
We have mitts and gloves in cotton, taffeta, lisle thread and silk, at any price
from 10c up to $1.25, but we enumerate the above as being exceptionally good
CLOTHING AND GENTS' FURNISHING DEPARTMENT.
Today we make a slash in men's business suits; we cut the price to $10 and
$13.50; this is not an advertising cut, but is a general bona fide reduction; the
goods are seal worsted, fine silk mixture, first-class trimmings and the very best
In children's clothing we defy anybody to meet our prices; we have always
been and always will be the lowest in this line; we will not advertise any prices;
if you will consult us we are sure to save you money.
Men's linen dusters, full lengths, $1.
Men's working pants, $1.85.
Men'B all-wool dress pants, $3.25.
Boys' sailor suits, gray flannel, silk embroidered anchors, exceptionally
Youths' long pants suits, medium weight, gray mixed cassimere, $3.75.
We will not dwell upon the worth of these articles. We have gained the
reputation of selling goods cheap, and you may rest assured that what we quote
to you will dispel anything at the prices that you can see on the street.
The finest black sateen shirts for men that can be manufactured; made of
Wm. Simpson & Sons' finest fast black sateen, which has a national reputation
for its luster, durability and finfsh, silk stitched and white pearl buttons, every
size, no shrinkage, no mismarking of sizes, everything fair and square, manufac
tured by us, price $1; if you can get this shirt iv town for $1.50 elsewhere we will

Men's white gauze underwear, 35c each.
Men's fine embroidered night robes, 98c.
Surah, china or grenadine Windsors, 35c apiece; worth 50c to 75c.

Fine web patented buckle suspenders, 35c. *
We can give you exceptional values today in shoes. We are in receipt of a
lot of ladies' kid and pebble goat shoes at $2 and $2.50 a pair, which are the best
values we have ever been able to place before this public,
We are closing out a line of ladies'shoes made by Jones & Co., of San Fran
cisco, at $4.50 a pair; we have been selling them at $5; they have been selling in
town at $6 and $6.50; there is no shoe made at any price that is superior either in
fit, quality or material; we can recommend them as the best wearing shoe that
we have ever had. *
Our line of $5 shoes, the latest that we have received, are perfect beauties for
fit, workmanship and material; they comprise footwear that any shoe concern
would be proud to place upon a lady's foot.
In men's shoes we are selling a line of genuine kangaroo button shoes at
$2.45; reduced from $3.75.
The success of this department depends upon the satisfaction that it gives the
public, and the price considered with the article, we feel assured of an increased
and enlarged shoe business.
