A QUEER CASE. The Police Guarding a Man From Suicide. He Has Purchased His Ceme tery Lot, And Selected a Monument and Epi taph. A Stranger and Hia Strange Actions. The Police Suspect a Case of Tendency to Veto Da Ba. ' A case worthy of the attention of a writer like Robert Louis Stevenson is now interesting the local police depart ment. The affair ia unprecedented, and the plan of action to be adopted in the premises is in the nature of an intricate puzzle. There have been innumerable instances in which the police were called upon to protect individuals against the murderous attacks of other persons, but thia is the first caae in the local criminal hiatory in which the de partment has been called upon to defend a man against himself, and that against his own will and without his knowledge. Of late Log Angeles Beema to have de veloped peculiar attractions for eastern people who have become tired of life. They seem to have adopted tacitly a va riation of a well-known Italian proverb, and to have concluded that an ideal conclusion to this life's troubles would be to "see Los Angelea and die." Only a few weeks ago a fine-looking old man from Pueblo waa found dying from etrychnine poisoning on the side walk before the Lan franco block. The proaaic people of this city could not un deratand the motive of his euicide, es pecially when it turned out that the self-murderer waa possessed at the time of hia death of a well-filled wallet, a gold watch and a lot of other valuables. . The only explanation poaaible ia that he came here to gaze on thia lovely city and die while still in the ecatacy. Another monomaniac of the same caliber, it appears, ia here now—a man of fine appearance, a man in the age of wisdom, and a man apparently in good circumstances. Thia individual, how evei, seems to have made up hia mind to finish hia existence in the moat methodical manner imaginable. For cold blooded deliberation hia example beats the record. It ia now a week since thia peculiar person made hia appearance at a well known monument factory near the corner of Loa Angelea and Firat streets. He explained that he wanted a first-class grave atone; picked out a design and the material of which be desired it to be made, and himself furnished the epitaph to be thereupon engraved. At the same time he declared, bruaquely, that he did not want "Tom, Dick and Harry to see the stone." When he waa asked where he desired to have the atone delivered, he replied that there was no immediate hurry, but that he would leave an order at the proper time. He then paid for the stone, aa well aa a neat little block of granite for hia feet, and departed. The mysterious stranger's next ap pearance waa at Evergreen cemetery, where he saw Capt. L. G. Loomia, the superintendent, and explained that he wished to buy a lot. The genial captain accompanied the queer cuatomer in a walk through the cemetery and pointed out a number of choice locations. Eventually a cosy little nook waa ae lected, and the gloomy man from tbe east paid $17 for the spot. He then left, aaying that he would call for tbe deed, and he came back next day to fulfill hia promise. "Do you want the grave opened right away?" asked Captain Loomia. "No, sir," replied the stranger. "May I inquire when you will want it?" "Never mind about that," was the re ply, "I have not made up my mind yet, but I'll let you know a day or so in ad vance, bo as co give you plenty of time." That conversation occurred a couole of days ago, and nothing has since been seen of the peculiar man at the ceme tery. The police are watching him, however, and will try to protect him against himself. United States Weather Office. Boport of observations tasen at Los Angelas January 6, 1892: Time. Bar. jTher.

Walter Maxwell's Denial. The following Associated Preas dis patch waa received by the Herald laat evening: Chicago, Jan. 6. —An afternoon paper says a stock company has been organ ized with a capital of $10,000,000, to es tablish a Monte Carlo gambling resort on a small island off the California coast, about thirty miles from Santa Barbara. Most of tbe stock has been taken by New York capitalists. The island is to be fitted up in grand style. This information ia obtained from G. S. Cbapin, of Chapin & Gare of this city. Matters are in abeyance at present; as the question of ownership of the island lies between Mexico and the United Stateß. It is proposed to put on a line of steamers to ply between the island and Santa Barbara, and run the establishment year round. The paper mentions the name of Walter S. Max well of California, who was urged at one time for chief of the horticultural de partment of the world's fair, I. H. Polk, his brother-in-law, and J. T. Gaffey, ex-member of the California board of equalization, in connection with the project. A Herald reporter saw Walter Max well about the matter last evening. "It's all a fake from beginning to end," said the debonair capitalist. "There used to be a newspaper reporter in this city named Culver, Dick Culver; he is in Chicago now, and I think he probably fixed up the story and has sold it to some paper there. There is abso lutely not an iota of foundation for the story. It is a canard. There was some such a scheme two or three years ago in which the scene was located at TiaJuana but that died a natural death long ago." p? pßicr s W DELICIOUS Flavoring NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS.

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—Dkak but: I have been contemplating for some time past making a statement of my case and the benefit I have derived from your treatment, remembering how glad I would have been conld I have seen some thing of the kind from a person in the city to whom I could have referred when I first came to Loa Angeles from my home in New York state. I have been suffering for several years with what various physicians in the east pronounced "chronic ulcerated laryngitis." I spent con siderable time at the Clifton Sanitarium, and employed the best medical skilllcottld find, all without any permanent benefit, and, a last resort, our family physician recommended Los Angeles. For a time I improved, and then I began to go oackward,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 became 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 by a serious stomach difficulty, made it very obstinate to deal with, but at last, after persevering for atlme with the use tof your remedies, I consider I am perman ently cured. If this will be of any value to you, you are at perfect liberty to use It; also to refer any one to my mother, my husband or myself. 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 months' treatment, prescribed by Dr. Williams, my cough left me altogether, and 1 now have no pain in my throat or lungs as formerly. I can not speak too bigtily of the benefits 1 have re ceived aud shall ever be grateful to one who is worthy of the highest recommendation. MISS MINNIE H. HARRIS, Riverside, Cal. Newhall, Cal., Sept. 22.1886. Dr. Williams—Dear Sir: I write to tell you how much I thank you for what you have done me. My catarrh and deafness, which have been a burden to me for so long a time, are en tirely cured, and my general health is to much improved that I feel like a different person. Thanking you again for your many deeds of . inndess, I am, respectfully youra, MISS ANNIE RICHARDS. .Tames Wilson, Esq,, Loa Angeles, late of Chi cago, 111 , s*ya: "For ten j eais 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 ln three months' time." I have seen so-many cases cured that I do not consider any case positively hopeless, unless both lungs are in a great measure destroyed, and even then the Inhalations prolong life and render death easy.

Since New Year's day we have been busily engaged making changes in our stores rear ranging and replacing departments. Although we have made no effoi tto do business in view of the fact that the carpenters, plumbers, paper hangers and painters had possession of them, all departments show a marked increase. The arrangement of our store as it stands at present ia the result of the necessities of our busineis forced upon ua by experience. It is our last and best change. We are now at home. The domestic department occupies a space heretofore de voted to the dress goods, and has ample room to display its magnificent line of merchandise. We sail Into the new year with flying colors. The management has guaranteed to increase the sales of the house 25 per cent during the coming year, and from the manner in which we atart out, there will be little doubt of its accomplishment. DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT. If you will step into this department today or even gaze at the values that we have on display in our show windows, we think it would dispel all doubt as to our future policy in our determination to do the dress goods trade of this town. We have moved to the center aisle so as to give you more light, more room and more conveniences in selection. There never was since the time immemorial a finer stock of dress goods placed on the Los Angeles market at such low prices as ours of today, reinforced by 150 to 200 pieces of various styles received from New York since the lßt of January. Having contemplated this change some time prior to the Ist, we instructed our buyers in New York to select for us the handsomest and cheapest line of drees goods that the late market could supply. At 25c a yard we sell you a line of stripes, plaids and checked fancy dress goods, in differ ent stylea. embracing3o to 40 piecesto select from; goods that we will guarantee are worth to sell from 35c to 50c a yard. At 35c a yard we sell you a linn of all wool, 38 inch dress goods, ln stylea and patterns never shown heretofore, the very newest and latest; goods that cannot be duplicated in thia city at 00c a yard. At 37% c we sell yon a line of asl wool, plaid drees goods, in twenty different shades; a quality of goods that cost to manufacture at least 40c, and goods that are usually sold by the retailer at 60c to 75c a yard. At 45c we sell yon a line of all wool dress goods, in plaids and stripe goods, that earlier in the season sold for 75c a yard; the price at which we quote these goods at is honestly less than they coat to manufacture. At 49c we sell you a line of plaid and etriped camel's hair bonrette effecta, In fact the most beautiful goods that we have ever Been sold under 7oc to 85c; we can assure you that our purchasing agents in New York have outdone them selves ln the way of choice selections. At 65s we show yoa a line of 54-inch wide yards), all wool, fancy dreas goods—goods that during the season were sold at $1 a yard the patterns'are entirely new, not a honse ln this town have shown any of the above mentioned goods at any price; all wool and I'-i yards wide, 65c. We assure you that during the ten years that we have been in this town that we have never had a line of dress goods that would compare with these in quality and value by 25 per cent of the price that we are offering these at today. The policy of this house to sell the best merchandise foi the least money will see more business transacted within its doors than the Los Angeles public have ever wit nessed in local trade. DOMESTIC DEPARTMENT. This department beyond doubt, both in character, quality and size of stock carried, as well as the number of salesmen employed, has always led any similar department in town. Prior managements have made the domestic department the leading feature of the house. The present management, while carrying this department to its full limit, and adding everything that is new and novel to it,. desires to still further increase what has been so favorably begun, and in its new quarters finds ample room to accomplish it. We are showing a line of all wool dress flannels at 35c a yard; embrace the most hand some designs in stripes and various colorings; never a yard left our house before this week under 50c; they are remarkably cheap. A line of Scotch flannels just received today, guaranteed to be imported from Scotland, at 50c a yard; these goods are worth 75c and cost 51c, with duty paid, to land in the city of San Francisco. At 10c we have today a special line or striped and polka dot chuda cloths; these goods have been sellingall season along at 15c a yard, and this ottering of them at 10c for the choicest patterns, no old styles or plugs, is a remarkable cut for a staple article that cost 10V4C to produce. We have just received from New York direct from the mill an invoice of flannels covering from ?3000 to 14000, embracing the various kinds of red, white and blue flannels, in plain, twillei, shaker and other flannels; we have marked theße at a uniform ratio of proflt, lower than ever any flannel came into our house; being late in the season when we made this large purchase, we bought them at most reasonable prices, aud tell them as they were bought. LADIES' UNDERWEAR DEPARTMENT. We have just received from New York sample lines of ladies', children's and infants' wool and cotton knit skirts, which we have marked for sale at a very small advance owing to the lateness of the season. Children's wool knit skirts from 50c to 98c. Ladies'cotton knit skirts, extra heavy, in black or balbriggan, 62c. Ladies' all wool knit skirts at f 1.25. Ladies' extra fine knit skirts, all wool, at $3. Ladles' sanitary natural wool merino vests at 50c An extra heavy quality of ladies' high neck and long sleeved jersey ribbed balbriggan vesta at 50c. Ladies' camel's hair, cashmere finish, wool vests at 75c; onr regular price ie ft. We call your attention to our corset stock which has been reinforced by several new lines of corsets, surpassing ln value anything that we have ever shown heretoiore. Our |1.25 corset is the best corset ma nufactured by anybody to sell at that price. Our corsets range in price from 50c to $5, and for quality of each the price cannot ba equallad. We will be more than pleaeed to have you come in and see the changes tbat we have made throughout our stores. We think that you will agree that they are most beneficial all around. In trading you can do so much more comfortable than heretofore, having more room, more seats, more light, and everything made easier and more acceptable for you. The disposition of our men's clothing has enabled us to bring forward our hat department, extend our furnishing goods department, and give our boys' clothing department full sweep. Our shoe department has been doubled in size and capacity, the entrance to it enlarged, and by carrying the best merchandise for the least money, we expect our sales to keep pace with our improvements.
