DANIEL SULLY AS "DADDY NOLAN. '
Dan. Sully, the great Irish comedi
an, and a good company, will present
"Daddy Nolan," the latest and great
est success, at Boss' opera house, next
Wednesday. Of this the xiew lorfc
papers speak in great praise. The
N. Y. Telegram, of July 13, 86, in a
eulogistic review, says:
"Daddy Nolan" is a very pleas ing
play. It 13 full of brightness and
vivacity, tinted and toned by oloudlets
of sorrow, which flit swiftly athwart
tho face of the story, and, passing,
leave the smilo3 and joy to shine
and sparkle more fully. It is well
told and compaotly constructed.
Thore is not a superfluous word in it,
and though trite in theme and not
novel in incident, the interest never
flags for an instant, and it is homely,
honest of purpose and wholesome
withal. Daddy's sorrows depicted at
the close of the first act last nigkk by
Mr. Sully brought tears to the eyes
of careless people blase profession
als, who sauntered in to while away a
dull evening, to "guy" the performers
and to get through the time with as
little loss to themselves as possible;
workaday folks, men, boys, gamim,
children, ladies and others, who came
to laugh only. This was success in
deed, and when the second act opened
with its wealth of stage business and
never halting action, "Daddy Nolan"
was proclaimed a rattling good play.
Those who really want to see a pleas
ant litle play, very well staged aud
capitally acted, should go to see Mr.
Sully's "Daddy Nolan."

San Francisco, July 16. Miss
Bella Charleston, an attractive young
lady of this city, has returned from
Portland, Oregon, and tells a woeful
tale of desertion on the part of her
lover, w. II. True, of that city. In
I the summer of 18S2 Miss Charleston
! was living with her widowed mother
on Market street, when True came to
J board with them. In a short time

finding San Francisco business too
dull, betook himself to Portland,
leaving his pretty wife behind. He
had not been a month in the latter
place when fickleness took hold of
him and he wooed and wedded Miss
Maud Longfellow. Not hearing from
the "doctor" his early love made
haste to join him. It was there she
learned of his faithlessness and mar
riage to another woman. He admit
ted ho had wronged her, bnt could
make no reparation. He fled with
his bride to Eugene City, Seattle, As

Charleston followed everywhere.
Finally he assured her he would
join her in one month in San Fran

RwfHt Colambla River Tides.
The tide table for the past six
weeks has been badly upset in mark
ing the ebb and flow of the tides in
this locality by reason of the high
water, and not till within the past few
days has tho inward sweep of tide
from the ocean resumed anything
like its usual dimensions. Daring
this time the great discharge of fresh
water has met and pushed back the
salty current setting inward twice a
day, the rush of wateront to sea over
powering the incoming flood and
forcing its own way many miles be
yond the mouth of the river so that
vessels in the offing dipping np water
would find it but slightly brackish.
During the middle of the ebb and on
to the time of low water the current
past the city and down over the bar
was something tremendous, and when
later on came the straggle between
the flood tide and the current fed by
the meeting of snows in the far off
mountains it was n matter of vital im
portance to the fishermen who found
there was virtually no flood tide to
come in on.

Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered

to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things whioh ought not to be,
have made tho American people a
nation of dyspeptics.

The Xevr York Philharmonic CInli.
Of this famous combination of
talent, which appears at Bos3' opera
house to-morrow night, theNew York
Tiines says: "A moro thoroughly
musical audienco is seldom assembled
than those whioh the ooncert3 of the
Philharmonic Club always attract.
Tho reason is obviously the merits
of the performances which they give.
They have played so frequently to
gether that they have acquired the
mutual confidence and unity which
only come from practice and contin
ual association. A great merit of
the Philharmonic Club's playing is
their unity of tone and the blending
of their performance in one harmoni
ous whole. There is no self-assertion
by any member, and tho result is una
nimity, which is the prime requisite
in a string soxtett. As to the indi
vidual merits of the members of the
Philharmonic Club there is no ques
tion." Eeserved seats at Carl Adler's.
