Santa Barbara to Join in the Exhibit-
Fair Matters.
The Chamber of Commerce is gradu
ally losing its local character, and is
gradually becoming representative of
the interests of entire Southern Cali
fornia. By Southern California this
day is meant that aggregation of re
markable fertility confined in Los
Angeles, Ventura, San Bernardino,
Santa Barbara, San Diego and Orange
counties. After the chamber was here
established, Ventura county was the
first to show the proper interest, and it
rather surprised the chamber by de
manding a membership and offering to
bear its share of the expenses of a per
manent exhibit. The example of Ven
tura county about two months ago was
followed by San Bernardino. Now Santa
Barbara has taKen its place in the line, for
its board of supervisors have just passed
a resolution to join the chamber of com
merce. An appropriation of $100 was
passed to establish a table in the per
manent exhibit, and committees were
appointed to canvass the county for in
teresting specimens. The board of su
pervisors also voted $15 per month to
pay the expenses of the enterprise. C.
F. Eaton and C. L. Lloyd are at the
head of the innovation.

A Graceful Act Done by the Typo
graphical Union.
Among the entries made in the office
of the county recorder yesterday was
that of the release of a $400 mortgage on
the property of Christian Keebler, de
ceased. Mr. Keebler was working at
his trade as a printer in this city, prior
to the difficulty which arose between
the Typographical union and the Times
about a year ago. Being a member of
the union, he, in common with his
brother members, was forced into idle
ness. Being of a naturally despondent
temperament, and fearing that his en
forced idleness might cause his three
motherless little children an undue
amount of suffering, his mind became
so deranged as to cause him, in a mo
ment of despondency, to throw himself
from the wharf at Santa Monica, there
by ending his earthly trbubles.
His estate consisted of a seven and
ofledialf acre ttact of land just outside
the city limits, on which' there was
found to be a mortgage of $400. The
members of the Typographical unions
throughout the Pacific coast made a
conceited move towards raising this
mortgage, and thus saving the property
to the orphans of their deceased brother
member. The result of their efforts is
shown by the record made iv the county
recorder's office yesterday.

Bronchitis is a disease of the mucous mem
brane of the air passage, and is one of the most
common of the pulmonary affections. Chronic
bronchitis more ofteu appears later in 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 chest, and still the patient does not feel
entirely well. He feels tired and languid, and
is incapable of taking his usual amount of
exercise, and experiences a shortness of breath
with more or less warmth in the palms 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 lungs or 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 diseese, the very- oppo
site of the above, is a very common affection.
Very many people, who regatd 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 pulmonary diseases.
There may st first be a slight, hacking cough
and au expectoration of a bluish white mu
cous. And herein lies the danger. This niu
cohs. inhabiting the air cells of the lungs, be
ing difficult to raise, after a time becomes solid
ified, permanently obstructing portions of the
lungs, causing shortness of bieathnnd a feeling
of oppression on the chest, particularly after
meals or on slight exertion. After a time the
cough becomes more severe and comes on in
paroxysms, and as the shortness of breath in
creases it almost assumes the character of asth
ma. The mucous membrane also becomes
more and more thickened,which arises from the
frequent fresh tolds, and the patient at last
becomes fully aware of the terrible changes that
have taken place and the inevitable results that
are to follow.
Without courage and perseverance nothing is
cmaWe.bul witU these, aided with our Medi
tated Inhalations and Compound Oxygen
Treatment Bronchitis can be cured even after
the lungs are extensively diseased.

us down their entire stock to be sacrificed. You will see the goods displayed in
our show windows, and we submit that the prices we have placed upon these
goods will merit your patronage if you are in want of foot wear.
