PROFESSOR LEONARD, I 316 1-12 SOUTH SPRING ST., THE GREATEST LIVING MODERN SEER, Wishes to thank the public of Los Angeles for their generous patronage since his advent among them. Prof. Leonard has been consulted by many of the wise and learned skeptics of the world, who have left his presence wit 1 minds filled with doubt, bewilderment and wonder. Many of our Los Angeles friends have been discussing the source of his powers. Some claim that he is a mind reader or a hypnotizer; others (of a more scientific turn of mind) that he is a telepathist or a thaumaturgist; while our spiritualistic friends claim him as the greatest me dium the world has ever seen. The Professor's marvelous powers are certainly beyond the comprehension of ordinary joortals. A Mao Who Can Accurately Diagnose Your Mental and Bodily Ailments, Can further tell you just what you have come to see him about without requiring you to open your lips to even pass the time of day, must certainly be poßßeesed of come strange power which distinguishes him from his fellowman. His advice on matters of business is always correct. He foretells the results of lawsuitß, specu lations, etc., and in matrimonial ventures his valuable aid has been the direct means of putting hundreds of couples on the right road to happiness and success. To show the people of Lob Angeleß hie real einceritv in his great work, he will give sittings the remaining dave of this week for $2. His advice and forecasts for the future are invariably correct. After Saturday next PROF. LEONARD will charge his usual price for sittings, viz., $5. . . The low prices which will prevail in the Professor's parlors for the remaining few days of this week will necessitate hi* keeping his rooms open from 10 o'clock in the morning until 0 o'clock at night each day. The Professor assumes this ex tra labor*hi a very gracious manner, knowing, as he does, that during the few days that this extra tax is imposed upon him he is doing the people a favor that will never be repeated here by any other spirit medium. Absolutely no money taken from anybody unless the visitor expresses himself or herself as absolutely satisfied. All dealings are Btrictly private and confidential.

A Young Husband Shoots His Wife and Himself, in Fresno. FBESNo.CaI., Oct. "6.— Two pistol shots, a bullet in the scalp of a wife and one in the skull of a hushand,composed the ex citing episode in the life of a young mar ried couple in this city tonight. The parties have been living on the third floor of the Kutner-Goldßtein block, on I street, for about a year. At about 7:30 o'clock this evenina they quarreled. It was brought to a sudden termination by the husband, Alfred E Hunt, drawing a revolver and discharging it at his wife's forehead as she was sitting on a lounge. Fortunately for her, his nerves were unsteady and the bullet intended for her brain struck high and plowed a furrow in her scalp, just above the place where the hair meets the fore head. Then, without a moment's hesi tation, the infuriated man pointed the pistol to bis own forehead and fired, inflicting a wound which may prove fatal. The wife was stunned by the shot, and the husband fell to the floor after making a target of himself. The report of the shots brought a number of peo ple to the Bcene, and the pistol was se cured and the doctor sent for. A determined attempt was made to hush the affair up, and no reporters were permitted to see either Mr. as Mra. Hunt. It is stated, however, that Hunt has been jealoua of his wife for some time, apparently without cause, and that they have quarreled be fore this. His wife this evening, in conversation with a doctor, attributed the occurrence to a streak of insanity in her husband. She said be had a fall some years ago, which injured bis head, and since that time he has been subject to fits of insanity. She said nothing of bis being' jealous or of their having quarreled. > PECULIAR WEATHER. Unusual Thunder Storms In Southern California.

A Tammany Brave Speaks in Boston. Mr. Blame's ltecipvocity Policy Criticised. Republicans Raisins: a $2,000,000 Corruption Fund. Philadelphia Capitalists Pungle Up as Usual—A Democratic Call for Funds—General Political Gossip. By the Associated Press ] Boston, Oct. 6.—Congressman W. Bourke Cockran addresetd a great Dem ocratic ratifieatign meeting at Treuiont temple tonight. Hon. James M. Beck, of Philadelphia, also spoke. Cockran was given a most enthusiastic reception. He spoke at length on the tariff ques tion, and, speaking of the reciprocity paragraph of the McKinley law said: "In it we have power given the president to suspend the operations of the tariff law, That was more power than was claimed by Charles I and James If, I appeal for a wider interpretation of our consti tution than mere terms of construc tion. Is the constitutional system of this country confined to the mere worda of that instrument, or do we enjoy that constitutional liberty which the pil grim fathers Bought? I don't believe the constitutional theory of this country began when that constitution was adopt ed. It had its origin in the cabin of the Mayflower. That constitutional system holds as a fundamental truth the theory that taxation without representation is tyrannical. If this reciprocity system of Mr. Blame's, with its vicious and un constitutional encroachment on the life of the American people, were to bring untold millions into every city of the union, the wealth would have been pur chased at a great sacrifice of the institu tions which made ua what we are, and which unfold to us the destiny we hope to accomplish. The reciprocity clause is not a broadening, but a restriction of the free list. If the interests of the American people require that theee articles be placed on the free list, why should the necessities of American labor be made subject to dicker with a few feeble South American states?" Cockran spoke of the merchant marine, which he said waß originally destroyed by the Republicans, and dis cussed the force bill at length. FRYING OUT THE FAT.

C, Oct. 6.—Aside from the usual changes characteristic of consumptive cases, there is no particu lar alteration in the condition of Mrs. Harrison. Her right lung is entirely consolidated, so she has no use of it whatever. The left lung is now in volved. Although anxious for prolonged life, the patient does not exhibit the cheerfulness and hopefulness usually so apparent in the case of consumptives.
