Those who have traveled over tbe State pretty generally during tha pMt few months say there is ao question but that Los Angeles lithe most lively and most enter prising place of its size in the Commonwealth. Hard times, it mall, have been prevalent every where, and it 1* not at all surpris ing that they should infest the SatlMM interests of Dos Angeles with the rest, especially when helped along by a big bank failure, • bad season and monopoly dis crimination against us. But al though business has shown some temporary falling off, tbe material growth of the oity baa never before been to stimulated. Tbe very "meet business blocks and some of .' the best residences to be found In the city have been acquired within tho past twelvemonth. The ag gregateooat of buildings in course of erection has never before figured up so magnificent a sum lo tbe whole history of Los Angeles. Viewed in the light of positive details which we have taken pains to ascertain, it is no Idle boast that our city is tbe moat progressive in tbe State, but tba fact must be admitted as be yond dispute. Below we present a list of buildings as furnished by tba several architect firms of the city: BUCHANAN A HERBERT, ARCH I- TICTS, Have tbe following: Baker Block—Three stories and basement; alee, 183 feet main front by 10? feat aide front; thoroughly flret-class brick construct ion.

A considerable number of resided oat of smaller pretensions are I>— log constructed under the super vision of the owners or mechanics, without calling iv the services of an architect, and we therefore have uo mean, of aacertalniug particu lar* concerning them without a aanvaaa of the whole city.

Mr. Kditqk:—Having read in your pa per repoits uf the remarkable cures of ca tarrh, I am Induced to tell " what I know about catarrh," and I fancy the "snuff" aud "inhaling tube" makers (mere dol lar grabbers) would be glad If they could emblazon a similar euro In the pupers. For 2b" years 1 sullered with catarrh. The nasal passages becamecompletelyclosed. "Snuti," "dust," "ashes," "inhallng tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work, though at intervals I wo aid sniff up the so'cailed catarrh snutt, until 1 became a valuable tester for such medicines. 1 gradually grew worse, and no one can know how much I suffered or what a miserable being I was. My head ached over my eyes until 1 was confined to my bed mi many successive duys, suffering tbe most intense pain, which at one time lasted contluuously for 1(18 hours. All sense of smell and taste goue, sight and bearing impaired, body shrunken and weanenea nervous system snat lered and constitution broken, uud 1 was bawklug and spitting seven-eighths of the I line. 1 prayed lor death to relieve me of my sullerlng. A favorable notice in your paper ot Dr. Soge's Catarrh Remedy in duced me to purchase a package and use it witli Dr. Pierces Nasal Douche, which applies the remedy by hydrostatic pres sure, the only way compatible with com mon sense. Well, Mr. Editor, It did not cure me lv three-iourths of a second, nor in one hour or mouth, but iv less than eight minutes 1 was relieved, and in three months entirely cured, and have remained bo over sixteen months. While using the Catarrh remedy, 1 used Dr. HeroeS Golden Medical Discovery to pu riiy my blood and strengthen my stom ach. I also kept my liver active and bowels regular by the use of his Pleasant Purgative; Pallet*, li my experience will induce other sufferers to seek tbe same means oi relief, this letter will have an- SWOred us purpose. our;-, ruiy, S.
