GIRL KILLED BY ACCIDENTAL SHOT Son of Mrs. d'Arman of Monro via, Who Slew Husband's Ad mirer, Fires Fatal Bullet PREPARING TO GO HUNTING Boy Cleaning Pistol in Home When It Is Discharged, Visitor Being Victim MONROVIA, Nov. 26.—Florence Price, the 16-year-old daughter of John T. Price, living in North Grand ave nue, was shot and almost Instantly killed at 4 o'clock this afternoon by Cecil d'Arman, 15 years old, the son of Mrs. E. Z. d'Arman, who shot and killed her husband's admirer, Mrs. Helen Griffith, known to the Arcadia racing clement as "Lady Bountiful," April 1, 1908. The death <>f the girl was due to the accidental discharge of a revolver and occurred In the d'Arman home, a short distance from where Mrs. Griffith mot her tragic death more thnn two years asro. The girl was visiting nt the d'Arman homo in the Savage apartments In West Orange avenue. Cecil d'Arman and a friend, Harvey Leonard, had planned a hunting trip for Sunday and were In a room examining and clean- Ing a shotgun and revolver. Miss Price entered the room and brushed against Cecil d'Arman, Btriking the revolver. Suddenly there was a loud report and Miss Price gave a piercing shriek and fell to the floor unconscious. Young d'Arman was terror stricken and for a few moments was unable to realize what had happened. He finally thrrw the weapon to the Moor, ran to where the girl was bleeding from a wound in her abdomen and moaned that he did not know the revolver was loaded. PHYSICIAN'S Am IVAVAIMNG A physician was summoned Imme diately, and despite his offorts the girl continued to pink until she died within twenty minutes after being shot. The bullet had ranged upward and pene trated both walls nf the stomach. The revolver belonged to the Leonard boy and was taken to the d'Arman home, whence the lads Intended to start on their hunting trip early this morning. The tragic death of the youmi girl completely unnerved Mrs. d'Arman. It evidently recalled to her mind the tragedy of April 1, 1908, when she waited for an hour at the little po t ofllce at Monrovia, where she calmly drew a small revolver from her muff and fired the shots that ended the 11.'c of Mrs. Griffith, who had alienated tho affections of her husband and openly flaunted the fact in the face of Mrs. d'Arman and her children. Following the acquittal of Mrs. d'Ar man of Hie killing of Mrs. Griffith, sho had a severe attack of nervous prostra tion and it was thought for a time that her mind would be permanently unbal anced. The body of the Price girl was taken to the undertaking parlors of J. J. Ren aker of Monrovia, where the coroner ■will hold an inquest Monday. jjfySOO Handsome $15 Silk Dresses $6.9BJpgp j Beyond All Question the Greatest Value Ever Featured in Los Angeles *^S|^7> /^m|^ Two of the Smart New Styles Are Here Illustrated—Fine Messaline and Taffeta Silk - 4f^^w\ / m\\- V^iliSißßWßH'ifMV'i^k^ * TIE TORDS AND PICTURES fail to adequately convey or portray the beauty of these garments or the '.V.v^ftf^ I^Vif^ftS^iK^^ A I '■'■•'■ I A;%mlI ■ IIBw/^i M\mWi Wk\ W unsurpassed marit of this most unusual value -$15.0) silk dresses for J6.9B—Thi ik of it.

Oldham of Singapore will preach ut 7:80 o'clock this eveninsr in tiie University Methodist church. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, 1910. Art Notes ELIZABETH WAGGONER Tho Ebell of Los Angeles will hold the second annual arts and crafts exhibition and sale at the clubhouse on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 28, 29 and 30. A program on the subject of arts and crafts will be given In the Auditorium Monday af ternoon for the club members, Miss Leta Horlocker speaking on "Arts and Crafts as They Are Related to Every day Life," Miss May Gearhart taking the subject of "Handicrafts in the Public Schools" and Hector Alliot dis cussing "The Craftsman of the Future." The opening reception and musicale will take place Monday even ing, and on the two days following the exhibition will be open to the public from 10 a. m. to 10 p. m. The exhibi tion promises to be an excellent one, and Judging from the attention at tracted by this exhibit last year the number of visitors during these days will be exceptionally largo. The local crafts workers have put their best efforts into the work to be shown, as this is the important ex hibition of the year In this branch of artistic achievement. A feature of especial Interest will be the exhibit sent out from New York city by Miss Buck, who Is carrying the handicraft movement Into a comparatively un tried field. Miss Buck has been teach ing the various handicrafts to the sick or aged Inmates of the Lincoln hos pital, and the results in weaving and basketry accomplished by these work ers nre marvelous. One room In th« clubhouse will be devoted to handi crafts from the Polytechnic high school, the Hollywood high school and the College of Fine Arts. —♦— The display of landscapes by Ralph Dnvison Miller will continue at tho Steckel gallery for another week and is one that should not bo missed. The eighteen canvases on view show a marked advance In the work of this painter. Not since the tremendous strides mndp by Carl Oscar Bor^ a year or two ago have wo noted such a growth both In artistic feeling and technical achievement. A landscape that Is Immediately singled out for consideration Is the strikingly decora tive "Reflections." Another canvas showing a fine decorative sense Is the "Elyslan Hilltop." "Cliffs at Del Mar" is beautiful In color, and the "Misty Day" Is one of the most poeti cal things in the collection. "Topango" is a noteworthy addition to the ren ditions we have had of this most paintable region. "Sunny Slopes" shows a One vitality of expression, and "Gathering Storm" Is most successful in the suggestion of Its ominously blue sea, more threatening than the skies above. This is the first Individual exhibition to bo held at the Steckel gallery this season and has proved an auspicious opening. Beginning: December 5 and for two weeks following John A. Donovan will show some twenty-five or thirty cnnvases at the Steckel gallery. Jlr. Donovan is well known as a painter of marines and hia coming exhibition of paintings will show the sen In all Its moods and atmospheric effects. He prefers to paint the deep sea and knows his subject thoroughly. With the exception of two small marines which were among tho best things shown at the Chautauqua exhlWt'on at Long- Reach last summer this Is the first time Mr. Donovan has exhibited here for three years, and the exhibi tion will consequently be awaited with much interest. The exhibition of portraits by Jean Mannheim will continue for another week at Herbert Hallett's gallery in the Blanchard building. This is the first time that the Interesting portrait of John W. Mitchell has been exhibited by the artist, and alsa the first public view of the recently completed portrait of James B. Lankershlm in uniform as a colonel on the governor's staff. Among the most delightful of the paintings shown are the two so-called "portraits" of -babies. The Jotting down of fleeting impressions, as all chilrl portraits must be. seem to con tain the very essence of childhood. The sketch known as "The New Hat" is remembered as one of the most spirited bits of painting in the exhibi tion when it was first shown here, and a head of an old man Is noteworthy as a study In expression of character. ELIZABETH WAGGONER. CROWD HAS II GALA TIME IN HAMBURGER'S TOYLAND Miniature City of Christmas Gifts Delights Throng of Mothers and Happy Kiddies There was a record breaking crowd In the toy department of Hamburger's great white storo yesterday—one scarcely less of a surprise to the man agement of the tsore thnn to thoso who composed the throng. Screens separ ating the department from other.i on the same floor won' removed, and dur ing the day thousands, of enthusiastic mothers and happy children packed the aisles between the beautiful array of toys and holiday novelties of every description. ' One hundred and twenty-five clerks were called to the department and they were not enough to wait on the thrung. As nuuiy man will be em ployed to take i-are of tho rush that is anticipated now that the toy depart ment is open for the holiday season. The last trip of buyers to the toy centers of Europe lasted three months and resulted In the addition to tho mammoth stock already purchasedLof every novelty obtainable on the other side of the Atlantic. The display, therefore, probably is as great as can be seen In any store on the Pacific coast. No wonder the children were, happy yesterday, and their happiness was accentuated by the presence of Santa Claus, who distributed candy, and George B. Beckwith, a well known clown, with his triok dog, from Bar num & Bailey's circus. A space of 200x165 feet on the fourth floor tias been devoted to the display. Fifty feet of the same floor has been reserved for additional stock which may be called for at any moment it may be needed. The old-time favorites In the toy line are shown In (treat variety. Novelties, particularly tic German and Austrian mechanical tor*, are numerous. "There Is much more buying this season than ever before for so early a date." Mtid ;i member of the tirm yes terday, "and more than we expdbted. We usually efcpect some time of sightseeing, but yesterday and today have given us a splendid start. We have laid the toy department in blocks and it is like a small town. Hy the use of tho wide aisles the customers may easily get around." With ail of the varicolored lights and the Christmas treo the store pre sents a beautiful sifrht. THE WEATHER LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 1910.

O, FAREWELL, YOU BOY JOY RIDERS! Amendments to Ordinance Forbid Operation of Motor Vehicles by Those Under 18 JAIL SENTENCE IS ABOLISHED Police Traffio Squad Will Toot Whistles on Street Corners to Avoid Congestion Amendments to the traffic ordinance that will make some radical changes were adopted by the legislation com mittee at Its session yesterday morn- Ing and will be presented to the city council for Incorporation into the or dinance Tuesday. One radical change Is that no one can operate an automobile or any other motor vehicle, which Includes motorcycles, who Is legs thn 18 years old. That means that boys cannot take out their papas' automobiles for joy ridr i any more. Neither can chil dren scorch around the streets on the "spitting devils." -Jut probably the most radical change Is the elimination of the jail sentence for auto speeders. Under the present ordinance, to exceed the speed limit up to thirty miles an hour calls for either a fine or a Jail sentence, but more than thirty miles an hour calls for a Jail sentence, without the option of fine, leaving no discretion to the Judge. Tlie amendments to the traffic ordi nance were approved "by the police commission, but Mayor Alexander, president of the commission, and John Topham. commissioner, both said yes terday that they did not know the elimination of the Jail sentence was Included In the amendments, They wore prepared by Sergeant Butler of the traffic squad and this particular amendment was written In Sergeant Butler's handwriting. Commissioner Tnpham declnred he would not have approved this particu lar amendment had he known it was Included nnd the mayor made th« same statement at first. Jut p'ter thinking it over the mayor said that he was not stronely opposed to the elimination of this provision. "As far as I know there have been but two jail sentences since th>> ordi nance has been in effect," the miyor said. "The judges do not like to im pose jail sentences and when such a sentence is involved it Is difficult to convict an offender.' For that reason mnny persons who should have been punished have escaped altogether." Toplwm Is ready to provide a m-as ure that will provide for li-e-sng chauffeurs and suspending the Tceise for alx months as a punishment for exceeding the speed ordinance. The whistle signal for crossings is Included In the new ordinance. Under ♦ lie whistle system the traffic squad will be equipped with shrill whistles. When they blow one blast all traffic moving north nnd south must stop im mediately. When two whistles are Mown, east and west traffic must stop nnd give the north and south a chance to eret through. This system has been successful in large cities of the enst.

You cannot tre^t your stomach as some men treat a balky horse; force, drive or even starve it Into doing work at which It rebels. The stomach is a patient and faithful servant and will stand much abuse and 111 treatment before It "balks," but when it does you had better go flow with It and not attempt to make it work. Some people have the mistaken idea thnt they can make their stomachs work by starving themselves. They might cure the stomncli that way, but It would take so long that they would have no use for a stomach when they got through. The sensible way out of the difficulty Is to let the stomach rest if it wants to and employ a substitute to do Its work. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do the work of your stomach for you and digest your food Just as your stomach used to when it was well. You can prove this by putting your food in a glaM Jar with one of the tablets and sufficient water and you will see the food digested in just the same iinio as the digestive fluids of the stomach would do It. That will satisfy your mind. Now to satisfy both your mind and body take one of Stuart's Dyspep sia Tablets after eating—eat all and what you want-t-and you will feel In your mind that youi food Is being di gested because you will feel no dis turbance or weight In your stomach; in fact, you will forget all about having a stofnachr Just as you did when you were a healthy boy or girl. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act In a. natural way because they contain only the natural elemcr.ts of the gastric Juices and other digestive fluids of the stomach. It makes no difference what condition the stomach Is In they go right ahead of fieir own accord and do their work. They know their busi ness and surrounding conditions do not Influence them in itie least. They thus relieve the weak stomach of all Its burdens and give it Its much-needed rest nnd permit It to become strong and healthy. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for pale by all druggists at BO cents a box. They are so well known and their pop ularity is so .great that a druggist would as soon thinl; of being out of alcohol or quinine as of them. In fact, physicians are prescribing them all over the land, and If your own doctor is real honest with you ho will tell you frankly that there I? nothing on earth so good for dyspepsia as Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets.
