Prooure Something Useful
In making our selections for Christ
presents, we should endeavor to
pro jure such articles as will prove
useful to those who reoeive them. As
a rule, we are too muoh given to pur
chafcing suoh things as will only for a
while please the eye. In making our
usual rounds, we have been observing
the many beautiful things now on ex
of the most attractive
places we have yet vißited is the Bos
ton One Price Clothing House.
This immense establishment is stock
ed to repletion with all manner of
beautiful and useful articles, and the
crowds that daily throng this house,
is an unmistakable evidence, that the
energy and enterprise of the genial
proprietor, Mr. Y. E. Holmes, heartily
appreciated by our citizens.
To give a detailed account of the
many beautiful things now on exhibi
at this Mammoth Clothing Establish
ment, would more than occupy our
entire columns, but suffice it to say,
here can be found the most beautiful
and useful things suitable for Holiday
mense stock, admiring everything in
its turn, we could not help but notice

Joaquin Miller's play
will tie presented at the
Honse* on Christina» afternoon and
evening. The drama is one*distinct
ively American, and lita production
in this city will doubtless produce a
genuine sensation. The plot hinges
upon the murderous vengefulness of
the "Danites" who, for a wrong doue
one of their Mormon leaders by the
father of the heroine, do not rest oqn
found to wreak their vengeance upon.
The scenes are all laid in California in
and around a mining camp. The play
itself is throughout strongly poetic
a-d exceedingly dramatic, showing,
great literary ability, a care
ful and correot attention to the drama
tic proprieties. The scenery is all of
the newest and really msguifl sent,
exyenso having been spared in giving
the play a proper settiug in each act.
And here it is only proper to add that
this is not in any sense
brood and thunder, startling border
dramas of the present day. It is are
fined, romantio and yet pathetic bit of
homely camp life, idealistic to a degree
and yet true to nature.
