A very good house and composed
largely of critical judges in music, ussem
bled at the Loa Angeles Theater last
night to here the Camilla Ureo concert.
The programme was a delightful one,
for the most part severely classical, and
embracing many of the choicest bits
from the greatest masters of the art. It
will uot be necessary to dwell here on
the number rendered by others than
Madame Urso. Without adverse reflection
on the others, it may be said that to the
audience generally the performances of
the star were the concert, the first ap
peared in an exquisite arrangement on
the march and prayer from the opera
Otliello. It is needless to Hay that it is
not a bit of composition for an amateur
to try. Its intracacies were rendered
with as much ease as the gamut by this
supreme mistress of tier instrument. In
response to a recall Madame
Urso gave a very elaborate
arrangement of the waltz caprice by
Wieniaweki. Her instrumentation is
masterly, sympathetic, artistic, perfect.
In the second part she rendered
Paganini's "Witches' Dance." It might
appear as if the charm of the perform
ance lay largely in the arrangement of
the music, as this ' accomplished artist
brought out all its weird but fascinating
measures; but such a thought was
quickly dissipated, if it was anywhere
entertained, when, in answer to
the recall, Madame Urso took the
simple notes of ''Home, Sweet
Home," and nearly wrung tears
from the audience by the pathos she ex
tracted from the strings of the violin.
This, instead of satiating the people,
only whetted their appetite; for a second
recall was insisted on. "The Carnival of
Venice," as arranged by Paganini, was
the piece selected. It would be difficult to
lind anything more thoroughly calculated
to test the consummate skill of the artist
than this selection. The delight of the
mueical portion of the audience is all
needed to prove how perfectly all the
the meaning of the intricate theme was
evoked. To-night there will be a com
plete change of programme.
At the Los Angeles Theatre to-morrow
night Nelson's great vaudeville and
acrobatic show will open for a season of

"The King's tool,"
There iB quite a demand for seats for
the production of The King's Fool at the
Grand Opera House next week. There
are 108 arti6ta in the Conried Opera Com
pany, and a corps of sixty young and
pretty chorus girls. The King's Fool if
an opera abounding in enchanting waltz
movements, as well as music of a grander
order. All of the scenery used in the
production is new and strikingly original.
The story of the King's Fool is laid in
the days of the Regent Phillip of Spain.
The revenge cf the court jester, whose
father has been tortured to death by
Phillip, is tho motive which leads to the
unmasking of the Regent's viiiany in
kidnapping the Prince heir apparent
when an infant. The plot turns on the
contentions of t wo rival political factions,
tbe Reds and the Blacks, who are aware
that the heir apparent, Prince Julius,
had been kidnapped and reared as a
girl, with the nieces of the Count
ess (orisanda, first lady in wait'ng
for the Regent. Both factions are anx
ious to secure possession of the Prince,
in order to overthrow the R?gent. The
military party, the Rede, in the first act
try to capture the Prince who is still
disguised as a princess, and through an
amusing contretemps secure a veritable
Princess, daughter of the Countess Cor
In the second act the military party
are discovered encamped in a beautiful'
woodland scene, with case ides of run
ning water. The Princess Felisa, who
has been nnVaken for the Prince, de
spite of her avowal is forced to appear in
male attire as their chieftan. In the
finale the real Prince comes to the rescue
of the Princess Felisa with whom he is
The Countess Corisanda follows the
Prince to the camp and in a dramatic
scene is called on to decide which is the
real Prince, ond on her decision depends
the death of the pretender. It will be
readily perceived that this curious com
plication gives rise to many quaint situa
tions and denouments.
The third act happily solves all the

A minister anil hia little boy enured
of an obviiuute skin disease by
the < iillcura Hcmcdirw. I'raises
them everywhere-In the pulpit,
home, and In the street.
For about, thirteen years I have bean troubled
with eczema or some other cutaneous disease
which all remedies failed to cure. Hearing of
tho CUTICURA REMEDIES I resolved to give
them a trial and'purehttsdone bottle of CUTI
CUBA RESOLVENT, ono box of orTICUKA,
Hnd ono cake CUIICIRA SOAP. I followed
i lie directions carefully, and it ali'irds mcmucli
pleasure to say thut before using two boxes of
the CUTICURA, four cakca of COTIOURA
SOAP, and one bottle of OUTICUBA HEaOLV
ENT, I was entirely cured.
In addition to my own CU', mv baby boy,
then about live months old, was suffering with
what I supposed to be the same disease as mine
to auch sn extent tnat his head was coated
over with a solid scab, from which there was a
constant flow of pus which was sickening to
look upon, beßidestwo Urge tumor-like kernels
on the back of hi« head. Thanks to you aud
your wonderful CUTICURA REMEDIES his
scalp is perfectly well, aud the kernels have
been scattered so that there ia ouly oue little
place by his left car. aud that is healing nicely.
Instead of acoatiugof scabs be has a fine coat
of hair, much better than that which was de
stroyed by the diseaie, 1 would that the whole

On the Influence cf Cold
I'rodnctlon of Diseases cf tbe In ng«
—AND ON THE—
Different Plans of Treatment,
BY M. HILTON WILLIAMS. M. D , M. CP.
8.0., specialist in diseases- of the Head,
Throat aud Chest, including the Eye, Ear aud
The state of the atmosphere impresses itself
directly on the mucous lining of the nasal pas
sages, throat windpipe, bronchial tubes and
air-cells of the lungs. Sudden chauges iv the
temperature of the sir are immediately felt over
the whole ot this extended surface. Coolness
and humidity render the air irritating to the
mucous membrane, irritation ends in eonges
liou, and congestion is the first stage of inflam
mation—the parent of ail those chroniccatarrh
al affections of the nose, thrnai aud bronchial
tubes, which ultimately end in consumption.
Nearly eighty per cent, of the cases of con
sumption begin by congestion of tho mucous
membrane of the nasal passages, throat aud
brouchial tubes produced by colds. To that
extent, therefore, conmmptlon springs directly
from the dump and changeable weather. It is
inflammatory and purely local In its early stage
—unite as much so as inll nidation of the eyes
or quinsy cf the throat, and must be treated in
the same direct manner.
It is a rule of medical practice, established by
ageß of experience, that every ditease which is
local—that is to Bay, has its seat in any one
organ or part of the body — requires for its euro
the direct applicaiioo of the remedies to such,
organ or part. When this can be done, the
disease is generally curable, aud when it can
not be done it is,if serious, generally fatal. The
same mucous membrane is spread over the
globe of the eye. lines the tear passage and in
ternal surface of the no-e, covers the throat,
passes down the windpipe, and becomes the
lining of the delicate aud Innumerable air cells
of the lungs. When cold produces Inflamma
tion of the eye In one pertou aud acute catarrh
of the head in another, the cause, the disease
and the membranes affected are alike in every
respect. When cold produces a sore throat In
one person and congestion ol the lungs in
ano her, there is no difference in the diseased
action ol the two cates, or in the principles of
treutment required for their cure. It is mu
cous membrane that is involved iv both cases.
But mauy treat these similar diseases of same
membrane widely different, and, as a conse
quence, cure one aud fail to cure the other.
For the eye they apply eyewashes and oint
ments directly to the lnllamed parts and are
generally successful. Iv the nose is app led
nothing to the diseased parts and catarrh be
comes seated and is thought to be incurable.
For an inflamed throat they prescribe gargles
and app.ieations to the throat, and generally
cure. For the same disease a little lower down
—in the windpipe aud bronchial tubes—they
make no direct application, but dose the pa
tient's stomach, and as a consequence often
fall to cure Would It not be foolish to pretend
to cure an Inflamed eye or a sore throat by doa
lug the stomach. Well, it is just as great a
mistake to treat catarrh and diseases of the air
passages of the lungs by dosing tbe stomach
Tbe fatality of lnng diseases is not due, as
many people suppose, to the malignity of their
nature or the importance of their breathing
orgaus. It ia the inevitable result of ;rosB neg
lect of the means of cure within the reach of
all. Properly treated by direct medication,
lung diseases are as curable as other maladies.
If any satisfactory result were attained by
constitution treatment alone in lung cases—if
they cured considerable proportion of such
cases—it might reasonably DC doubted whethor
the direct treatmentof inhalation could accom
plish better results. But the fact is, they do but
very little good. Even in hospitals, where the
diet, exercise and general habits, as well as
their medical treatment, are entirely under the
control of physicians, very few well defined
diseases of the lungs can be shown to have been
cured by the stomach treatment out of every
thousand cases so treated. It has been so unf
formly unsuccessful that most people have
come to regard consumption as equivalent to
the hand of death! In giving it up, therefore,
those having lung diseases abandon nothing,
save the certainty of an earthly grave for a hope
of life and health.
Now, look at the results attained by the direct
treatment of the lungs by inhalation. In all
ordinary cases of catarrh, bronchitis aud
astinna, improvement immediately takes place,
and they go ou to complete cure. In consump
tion the disease is more obstinate, but these
cases ultimately get well. Even in desperate
cases benefits always result from inhalations.
Rn d wo can point to hundreds of such cases
which were given over to die and pronounced
hopeless, and yet recovered and are uowliving,
these tacts are easily certified to by thousands
of living witnesses at tho present day.
