Editors Herald : When, Wednesday last, at Mrs. Masac's concert in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A., Mrs. Rubo (Garso-Dely) substituted the well known aria, Ach, Mem Sohn, for Mo zart's cavatina from Nozze di Figaro, the musical critic of your contemporary, the Times, did not notice the substitu tion, and in his report spoke of tbe cavatina, Ach, Mem Sohn, from Nozze di Figaro. Now, last night at the Foran concert, Mrs. Rubo, in response to an encore, sang again the same aria, Ach, Mem Sohn, and this time the learned critic attributes that aria to Euriauthe, by Weber. Allow me to inform tbe said critic of the universally known fact that the aria, Ach, Mem Sohn, is from The Prophet, an opera composed by a cer tain Meyerbeer, whose fame has per haps attained the ear of the aforesaid critic.

Throat Diseases, Asthma, Bronchitis and CONSUMPTION Successfully treated by DR. M. HILTON WILLIAMS 137 South Broadway, Los Angeles, Cal., By his Aerean system of practice, which con sists of proper Medicated Inhalations and compound Oxygen Treatment. BRONCHITIS. Bronchitis is an Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes, and is one of the most common of the pulmonary affections. Chronic bronchitis more often appears later in life. When a cold settleson the lungs thedisease either ends in bronchitis or pneumonia. If it ends in bronchit is 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 heotic flush, loss of flesh and strength, and night sweats continue, when the patient assumes all the appearance of hay ing a genuine ease of consumption. But this is simply catarrh of the lungs or chronic bron chitis. 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 green. Dry Bronchitis—This disease, the very oppo site of the above, is a very common affection.. Very many people, who regard themselves as. quite healthy, are today under its influence, and are slowly but surely becoming the vie tlms of this treacherous complaint. This Is the most insidious of all pulmonary dlseasaß. 'fhere may at first be a slight, hacking coagh and an expectoration of a bluish white mu cous. And herein lies the danger. This mu cous, inhabiting the al? cells of the lungs, be ing difficult to raise, alter a time becomessolld ifled, permanently otstructlng portions cf the lungs, causing shortness of breath and a feeling of oppression on tbe 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 thlckened.which arlseafrom the frequent fresh colds, 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 aDd perseverance nothing Is curable, but with these, aided with our Medl -1 cated inhalations and Compound Oxygen Treatment Bronohitls can be cured even after the lungs are extensively diseased.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1892. The past week has brought us lots of new goods in every department of the house. Supe rior classes of mercuandise which we have only handled in small quantities we have elaborated on in every detail. Our experience with the better cUbs of goods in tbe past six months has been so complimentary that we have been induced to go into it to its fullest extent. As out ratio of profit is uniform, you will And all classes of goods sold in like pro portion. As far as price is concerned, you will always find us under any house in town, and if, perchance, it should happen that we are not, we will consider it a kindness to be in formed by our patrons, and will make our prices even lower than any quotation men tioned. Those of our patrons who remember our domestic department in the center aisle of our store, and tho difficulty experienced in reaching thee counters, owing to the large numbei of purchasers to be Srrved and the limited space, will fiud more accommodation and a larger stock in new quarters, formerly occupied by our dress goods department. It is the heightof our ambition, now that tbe dress goods and silk stocks are moved to the center aisles, to line these counters with as eager and expectant patrons purchasing Bilks and dress goods as were formerly wont to occupy the same space buying cotton fabrics. It requires time, but with the inducements that we hold out It must eventually come. We shall offer a line of 40 inch plaid wool dress goods in gray effects; you will find them to be the cheapest merchandise ever sold by any establishment in tho known world; mind tbe width, one yard aud a quarter, and the price will be 25c This is an item that should call out every lady in Los Angeles that has any wants in the way of good dress goods for 25c per yard; as we are desirous of haviu* this go as fir as pos sible, and only having a limited quantity, we must restrict the purchase to eight yards for any one purchaser. The next inducement lo visit our stores ■ arly Monday morning off red by the dress goods de partment is a line of 4(i inch nil wool, solid colored,silk finished henriettas sad serges, the value of which ranged from $1.25 to $1.50 per yard; these goods could not be imported lor Jl per yard. Owing to tbe limited quantity we have of them, and wishing them to go as far as possible, we must restrict the purchase to 10 yards for any single person. Price, 750 Considering Ihe quality of these goods, and they a so come in back, we must say that at 75c per yard they are even a greater value than the first item at 25c. You all know what the French a'l wool chal lie is, and yon know the price is just as staple as it is on calico; there is less money in hand ling these goods at the regular prices of 65c and 750- per yard than there is in gelling cot ton flannel; we will place them on sale Mon day at . 49c We will- call yonr attention to the fact that the colored dress goods which we had on sale during the past week will remain so during the present one, and those who were unable to get to town owing to the inclement weather bave an opportunity to avail themselves of this offer. In blaok dre>s goods there is not a house in the state of California that can show you the quality for the money that we quote. We com mence our line at 15c lor half wool serges and henriettas. At 35c you buy a French Imported cashmere or serge, 36 to 40 inches wide, all wool; we could not land these goods for 40c in New York. At 50c you are buying a quality that we always got 75c for. At 75c we sell you the line that we always got 98c for. and it em braces all wool serges, henriettas, fancy novel ty black goods, siU fancy drop d'alma. We tell you the truth when we say these goods ran never be replaced for the money we are selling them at. For 98n we are selling you onr $1.50 quality of black silk warp Henrietta, onr black silk warp glorias, our silk finish fancy serges and henriettas, 46 inches wide. At 85c we sell you a line of fancy novelty dress goods, 42inches wide; they arrived yes terday, are the very newest creations»nd under olher circumstances we could not offer to sell them under $125 per yard. In colored and figured India silks we are sell ing a line of 24 meh at 45c. We do not want to confuse these goods with the quality that is being sold at 37]4c and which will not hold a thread. The latter is the cheapest made. We won't,have it in onr house. In purchasing silks, no matter whether they are ours or oth ers, always try the strength of the material, and you will find these cheap silks are nothing but tissue paper. The silk we offer you is a grade that was Bold at 65c, and we warrant these goods to give wear and satisfaction. In selling our silks, dress goods or any fabric in the house we do so with an implied guarantee that they will give wear and satisfaction to the purchaser, otherwise we stand ready at any time to make it good. At 74c andiBso we sell you some of the hand somest printed India silks that you have ever seen, and certainly the best value for the money ever offered in Los Angeles. At 98c a line of sublime printed India silks. We have heretofore declined to sell tbem at $1.24 because actual comparison with any thing in this town, has proven them to be per yard cheaper than the closest competition; a number of patrons Inform us that they can buy a similar qualtity at tho same price; to be lower thajrthe lovest we have marked them at 98c We would advise our friends that at 98c this is the cheapest piece of silk we have in our stock. We are offering Bpeeially a line of col ored surahs of sublime quality at 50c per yard. We have all the new shades, and tell you candidly that we cannot replace them when these are-gone under 75c per yard. Our-3peclalsaleon black dress silks, all dif ferent weaves, at 75 centsswill continue during the week as long as we have the goods. We oan emphasize the fact that there never has at any time, in the mercantile history of this town, atony sale, for any cause, under any circumstances, been merchandise, such as we have, men turned above, quoted at these prices. In our wash, labric stock you will find the nevwst things, new materials created this sea son, new designs printed and woven, cotton. Bedford cords copied from the finest Imported wool materials with the handsomest printed designs. We are offering these goods, and the? should cemmand 25c per yard, at Isc A line- of handsome printed cotton Chevrons. These are also Imitations of the fine Franch dress gaods. When made up it would be e,.»Uffl eult matter to tell the difference between them And a Hue all wool dress goods. Thislinechould command 25c per yard and we have marked them to sell at 100 Some very handsome styles in finer French Sateens, as well as new material called wash silk. When made up it requires an expert to discern the difference between this, material and the real silk.
