A courtesan named Dalla Leonard was arrested yesterday on a warrant sworn out by Isaac Meyers on June 22d, '•barging her with embezzlement.

The Leon ard woman came back to the city a few days ago and the warrant was served yesterday. Herald readers will remember that Mies Anna Hackett, the stamp clerk at the postoffice, was victimized by a "flim flam" operator some days ago. Her fellow-clerks, appreciating the situation, made up a purse of $15, and on Wednes day' last presented it to Miss Hackett. The loss thus distributed is not so hard to bear, but the climate in tbe imme diate neighborhood of tlis postoffice ia uot just efbw a healthy one for the class of sneaks that works the change game.

The fourth season of the Ellis club was opened laat night at the Grand opera houae. That the conceit was an event in society, it is almost needless to Bay. That the music was good, and that the audience knew it waa good, the his tory of this organization would make it also superfluous to reiterate. Under the leadership of Mr. H. Burton, the Ellis clubhaß made itself the equal, if not the superior, of any choral society on tbe coast. Its only rival might be the Loring club, of San Franciaco. In mak ing such a statement as thia, sight is not lost of tbe many excellent German choral organizations on the Pacific slope, but, on the contrary, tbe statement ia the reault of a. deliberate comparison. To be aa epigrammatic aa possible, the Ellis club has too mir:h art at the expense of heart. A worse fault would be the reverse, which too often characterizes German male choruses. The technical difficulties in case of the Ellis club have been so thoroughly surmounted by tiling, drill, polish, whatever you wish to call it, that the result appears sometimes al most mechanical. It is like the perfec tion ofMendelssohn, gained only by re peated and continued erasure and cor rection, compared with the soul-stirring genius of inspired Chopin. As the Bporting editor might express himself, and the expression is extremely applica ble, the Ellis club is over-trained. It is booed that this opinion, for it is only offered as an opinion, may be ac knowledged by those who heard iast night's concert, ai being thoroughly supported by last night's singing. There were two parts to the programme, one made up of a beautiful selec tion of lyric dainties, the other of that wonderful piece of dra matic music, Felicien David's " Des ert." The first half waa as follows i The Ruined Chapel Becker King Wltlaf's Drinking Horn Hatton ' Maiden with the Lips So Rosy Gall Quartette (instrumental) Doppler Cradle Song MacDowell Dance of Gnomes MacDowell The Long Day Closes Sullivan Each of these numbers was certainly sung aa nearly perfectly aa the most critical musical technicist could ask, but where heart waa required beaidea art, it was not in the singing. On the other hand, consider the mas terpiece of art of the second part. Such art as obtains in that composition re quires art for its interpretation, and the Ellis club waa equal to the occasion, the most delicate nuances being treated al most ideally. What was the result of all? That, although the members and friends of the Ellis club were hardly an ticipating it, the rendition of The Desert was perfection, while the first part of the programme, whicn one mem ber strangely enough characterized as | "not amounting to much" cannot be compared with the second. The second part of last night's concert forms an era in the history of this admirable organ ization. The club was assisted by Misa Edith Leramert, Miaa Carrie B. Conger and the Los Angeles Quintette club. Purity aud wholesomeuess are the physicians endorsement ot Angostura Bitters, manufac tured by Dr. J. B. B. Slegert & Sous. At all druggists.

"CONSUMPTION CAN * BE * CURED. This is being verified every week in cases treated by DR. M. HILTON WILLIAMS —BY HIS— .Medicated Inhalation System of Practice. Over 103.000 Persons treated during the past Twenty-Five Years from all parts of the globe. READ THE FOLLOWING: Dr, M. Hilton Williams—Dear bIR: I have been contemplating for some time past making n statement of my case and the benefit I have i derived from your treatment, remembering how glad I would have been could I have seensome | thing of the kind from a person In the city to whom I could have referred when I first came ;to Loi Angeles from my home in New York 1 state. I have been su'fl'erlng for several years with j what various physicians In the oast pronounced "chronic ulcerated laryngitis." I spent con siderable time at the Clifton Sanitarium, and employed the best medical skill I could find, all without any permanent benefit, and, a last I resort, our family physician recommended Los Angeles. For a time I improved, and then I began to ko backvrard.and all my former symp toms returned. Through a medical friend I was induced to try your treatment, which I did August 29, 1884. I bocame very much discouraged at times, but persevered, as I felt almost desperate and knew of nothing else to turn to. My throat trouble, being aggravated ".y a StGfflaC-,1 '. difficulty, made it very obstinate to deal with, ! but at last, alter persevering for a time with the . j use of your remedies, I consider I am permau- I ently cured. If this will be of any value to you, j you are at perfect liberty to use It; also to refer i .my one to ray mother, my husband or invself. 1 Very truly yours, MRS. J. D. WILEY, Corner Union avenue and Eighth street, Los Angeles, CaL To the many testimonials won by Dr. Wil liams it gives me pleasure to add my own to the list so highly in his favor. For nearly two years I had been suffering from throat and lung trouble, brought on by catarrh. Had tried many remedies in the meantime, but found only temporary relief. After two momhs' treatment, prescribed by Dr. Williams, my cough left me altogether, and 1 now have no pain in my throat or lungs as formerly. 1 can not speak too highly of the benefits 1 have re ceived and shall ever be grateful to one wno is worthy of the highest recommendation. MISS MINNIE H. HARRIS, Riverside, Cal. Newhall, Cal., Sept. 22.18811. Dr. Williams—Dear Sir: I write to tell you how much 1 thank you for what you have done me. My catarrh and deafness, which have been a burden to m 9 for so long a time, are en tirely cured, and my general health is >-o much improved that I feel like a different person. Thanking you again for your many deeds of kiundess, 1 am, respectfully yours, MISS ANNIE RICHARDS. James Wilson, Esq,, Los Angeles, late of Chi cago, 111, says: "For ten v ears I have been a terrible sufferer with chronic bronchitis; but with Dr. Will iams's Medicated Inhalations and the climate of Southern California, I have been entirely re stored to health In three months' time." I have seen so many cases cured that I do not consider any case positively hopeless, unless botn lungs are in a great measure destroyed, and even then tbe inhalations prolong life and render death easy. M. HILTON WILLIAMS, M. D., M. C. P. 8. 0., 137 S. Broadway, I.os Angeles, Cal. PEOPLE'S STORE. Sunday, November 8, 18Q1. 1111 With November we enter the twelfth year of our existence. Looking back ward at our birth and subsequent growth, it is both with feelings of pride and appreciation that we contemplate what has been and what is. Through the kindly assistance of this generous public we have been able to build up the largest retail business in Southern California. No one will dispute that in area or in the volume of stock carried is there an exclusive retail house south of San Francisco that will make comparison with us. It is not in the spirit of conceit that we utter these words, but to show you how important a factor tbey are when considered in connection with the price of our merchandise. The larger the buai ness, the more goods consumed, the larger the quantity bought, the lower the price. Quantity rules in every purchase that is niadd. The Claflin Co. of New York maintain their supremacy in the jobbing trade, because they do the largest business in the United States, and, doing tbe largest business, use the largest volume of goods, consequently they buy their goods cheaper than any other con cern, and buying them so, sell them below any of their competitors—hence they maintain their supremacy. Upon a smaller scale we occupy the same position. Our Los Angeles and San Francisco stores combined purchase more merchandise than any jobbing house in the state of California in our line. The jobbers in California are dependent upon the retailer for their maintenance and support. The retailer who buys from the jobber pays the latter a profit, and must in turn make one himself in order to exist. Using as many goods as we do, we buy them as cheap or cheaper than the jobber, and are contented with a less ratio of profit, so when we sell our goods we sell them at the price they ordinarily cost the retailer. It is only today that we made a purchase of ten cases of underwear; they are marked up the street in the window of a retailer at $2 apiece; we bought them today at a price that will enable us to sell them at $1.25. The price of this garment was $18 a dozen, but we closed out the ten cases at $11.50 a dozen, and they will be placed before you at $1.26. This is one of the many illustrations of the effect that quantity has in the pur chasing market. In our ladies' underwear department we are selling some ladies' full finished merino vests at 85c apiece. Now anybody that has the slightest idea of ladies' underwear knows that it is an impossibility to buy a full finished garment for 85c. This garment is worth at least $2 in the ordinary channel of trade. We took all there was of them, and named our own price, and as we buy our goods so we sell them. If every time the People's Store bought a bargain, and that is a daily occurrance with us, we asked you the full value that the article is worth, there would be no magnetic power of attraction to draw you to us, our business would be aa dull and sleepy as most others in this town; but you can walk into the People's Store every day, in every department you will find something so far beneath the market value that it appeals to you at once, and intuitively you know that it is below the cost of production. It is not our good looks nor our takey ways that have led us to this mercantile supremacy, but it has been un ceasing and untiring labor and ever constant struggle to cater to the wants of our patrons, to place before them values iv merchandise that they could not obtain elsewhere. It is impossible to build a structure in midair—it must have a founda tion upon which to rest. Ours rests upon the cardinal principle of the very best merchandise for the very least money consiatent with exiatence. It has been the policy of the present management to increase and better the character of the merchandise handled by the People's Store, while retaining as far as possible the old prices for which it has become famous. For the past three or four years merchants of this town, when comparing our prices with theirs, would simply quote us as carrying nothing but trash. This is a very easy way to overcome objection when our prices are quoted to them. Iv our dresß goods department we have displayed the very latest novelties in some of the very high cost fabrics. We have sold more than we anticipated. Our dress goods trade prior to this season had been very much run down because of the neglect to carry the proper goods. But this season our selections in Btyles and coloringß have been very favorably commented upon. Our prices have been right, and we must have made a terrible hole in the business done by some of our past favored merchants who were monopolizing the whole of this trade. We notice the squeal and howl that is being made, and the vain, frantic effort that is being made to check the stem of our increasing trade by throwing out a few baits to induce the unwary to come in. In our shoe department the cry of trash will be heard no more. We ara now carrying in ladies' shoes a full line of Curtis & Wheeler's finest hand made shoes. In men's shoes we handle the well known makes of Hanan & Son and Lilly, Brackett & Co. Everybody that wears shoes knows the superiority and suprem acy of these makes in men's and ladies' footwear. In our men's furnishing goods department we have never carried as fine a line nor have we ever done the volume of business that the results of this season will show. We can sell anything, no matter how good, if it has merit and price in accordance. The idea that the People's Store can only sell medium class goods is exploded. Next spring our styles and fabrics will revolutionize tbe trade of Los Angeles. The end of this month will see what waa once our clothing depart ment replaced by our hat department. Our furnishing goods and our boys' clothing will occupy that entire portion of the store. When all our alterations are complete, we think for the size we shall have the handsomest store in Los Angeles. We are Belling goods very cheap this month. In fact, the necessities of our business compel us to part with our merchandise without profit, so that you are enabled to take advantage and purchase goods cheaper than you ever will again. We are now unpacking and opening some two carloads and a half of holiday goods. We ahall have our toy department opened for inspection about the 15th of this month. We will have the finest selection of toys and holiday goods that it has ever been our pleasure to show this public. Our book department we will open about the Ist of. December, and have a most exceptionally cheap and splendid line of books suitable for holidny gifts. The rate on toy books charged by the railroad company is $3.30 per 100 pounds. The rate on toys per 100 pounds varies from $2.20 to $4.20 per 100 pounds. By shipping them in carload lots we get them all through at the uni form rate at $2 per 100 pounds. Outside of us there is not a concern in Los Ange - les that can use a carload of toys. So you see the advantage of trading with us will save you the difference of 100 per cent, alone in the freight, even were they disposed to sell their goods as closely. We might continue this illustration of pointing out the advantages of trading with us ad finitum, but we will stop right here. A share of your generous patronage is solicited, for which we will be more than thankful. A. HAMBURGER I SONS.
