OW that the Midwinter Fair has filled the 
allotted time of its official existence as an 
international show, we can appreciate how 
completely it has filled the designation of a 
"hoodoo." It began in opposition, be- 
cause M. H. de Young suggested it and 
his many political foes saw in it a chance 
for a boom to his Senatorial aspirations. 
The glorious climate spat on it for months, 
the concessionaires swore at it, the down- 
town merchants damned it and the rail- 
road tie-up dealt it the parting kick by 
keeping back the vast crowd of hayseed 
sightseers who were ready to break the 
turnstiles on Fourth of July week. Never- 
theless, as a financial venture it came out 
right side up with care, which shows that 
Editor de Young is one of the greatest 
financiers of the century. If he were only 
half as good a politician he would be 



giving away togas in joblots instead of looking for them.

IWl AX POPPER, who has been sliding down steadily as a Democratic 
leader, has finished himself by holding an ear-wigging scene with 
Boss Buckley in the Baldwin Hotel. Even Sammy Braunhardt could have 
told Max that such a move was deliberate suicide, for the moment it gets 
around that Max inclines his ear at close range to " Buck," the subordinate 
statesman of the grand old party will, of course, hunt up the spokesman 
and not the phonograph. Max has not improved his case in the least by 
trying to explain the conference was unsought on his part. The public is 
lamentably obdurate and skeptical in such matters. It refuses stubbornly 
to understand that it was impossible for the Democratic leader to dodge 
the blind ex-boss. It cannot understand that Buckley saw him and ch ised 
him round the corridors, never relinquishing his hot pursuit till the Demo- 
cratic leader in sheer despair threw up both hands and surrendered his 
ear to the council. It was unavoidable, but it was woefully unfortunate. 

Max, you had better resign.

THE great railroad strike, which paralyzed local trade reminds us that 
every year the struggle between capital and labor intensifies in bitter- 
ness and increases in the proportions of the combatants. The peace- 
able settlements of these great questions of labor and capital cannot go on 
perpetually, and unless the warring forces come to some just and reason- 
able understand'ng before long we may be plunged into actual revolution 
instead of overcome by the mere shadow of it. 

* * * 

IN the case of the tie-up of the Southern Pacific, the trouble grew out of 

the action of old Pullman in cutting down the wages of his mechanics 

33^3 P er cent. This was attributed to hard times, while simultaneously 



the Pullman Company paid a dividend of two per cent a quarter, and the 
affluent Pharisee at the head of the concern donated $100,000 to build a 
church. We hardly think that any fair-minded citizen will hold that such 
conduct has been a signal and grateful glorification of the Lord. Any man 
who, in this year of bitter adversity through which we have passed, would 
act as old Pullman has done, tramples on the tenets of his Bible, outrages 
the principles of humanity and justice and advertises himself as a hoary 
old reprobate who, having looted all he can on earth, would purchase a 
front seat in heaven with the proceeds of his avarice. 

* * * 

THERE were lively times in the Democratic clubs last week. Rolls were 
stolen, heads punched and eyes blackened and a small riot only 
averted by the timely arrival of a squad of twenty policemen. To many 
this would appear to bode but illy for the party, but it is really the surest 
sign of success and proves that the grand old party is in earnest. When 
a Democratic campaign opens with broken heads, pistol shots and all the 
exhilarating incidents of a riot, a nomination for Supervisor at the hands of 
Boss Popper or Boss Buckley, if reinstated, is as good as an election and 
$5,000 of the Spring Valley sack in pocket. 

* * * 

CMALL straws often show the way the wind is blowing, and the late 
speech in the English House of Commons of James Kier Hardie, a 
representative of labor, insignificant as it is in itself, shows clearly the views 
of the people he represents, and doing so must carry weight with it. The 
occasion was the moving for an address of congratulation to Queen Victoria 
on the birth of an heir to the throne of England. There can be no doubt 
that the middle and lower classes of people in Great Britain have long 
since lost that blind sense of loyalty which once led them to look upon the 
Queen and her family as something "a little lower than the angels," and 
now consider them useless and expensive puppets. That England will 
soon experience some radical changes, both as regards the crown and the 
House of Lords, no thinking man who has studied the subject can doubt. 
Kier Hardie only voiced the sentiments of millions of the Queen's subjects 
when he said ; " The motion was made because the child was born in 
the royal family and the House has a right to ask what particular blessing 
the royal family has conferred upon this nation." 

* * * 

IT is now made to appear that the Mechanics' Institute Trustees who dis- 
missed Librarian Wilson had potent reasons for such a course of action 
and that they have clearly demonstrated to the other trustees the advis- 
ability, not say the necessity, of such an action. In fact, to put it in a most 
mild manner, Wilson's management was by no means economical. He is 
charged with paying two-thirds more for printing and binding than he 
should have done, and with paying at the same rate for new books and 
magazines. "These," Trustee Formhal says, "are only charges of bird- 
shot," and compared with other matters are the least important. Under 
these circumstances Wilson will be content probably to rub the place where 
the bird-shot struck him and not tempt Providence by springing a dynamite 
mine on himself. 




LOVE'S OPPORTUNITY.

FRISCO CELEBRITIES. 



A Young Man Who is Writing a Book on Society and Its Foibles. 




What 1 know about society s 
Shortcomings and impieties. 

The reading world will pretty 
shortly know ; 
And my friends flock round to tell 
That my book is bound to sell. 
And I think myself it's pretty 
sure to go. 

How they tipple, flirt and play, 
At resorts around the bay ; 

Now they bow themselves before 
" the golden calf ; " 
How the wives who' re at the springs 
Do and say immodest things, 

While the trusting husband 
"stakes" his better -half. 



I have bought a " Dowe" cuirass. 
Through its breast no ball can pass. 
I imported it expressly for the 
job ; 
For my late friends, the Fruit Pickers, 
Will raise manifold wry snickers. 
When I lay before the public how 
they rob. 

Well I know 'twill make a fuss, 
And create a lively muss. 

The Four Hundred hate a rak- 
ing down like this ; 
But I do not care a pin, 
For their Jury and their din 
Don't bother e'en a trifle. 

Yours, Chambliss. 



WASP ON THE WING. 




T Sausalito last Sunday, there 
was a lively time and blood- 
shed was only averted by the 
prompt action of two wives with 
more presence of mind than most 
men. 
Eccles and Furlough, both in- 
insurance clerks, have taken a house 
together at Sausalito for the summer. 
Both are lately married and have 
pretty wives. Up to Sunday they were 
the best of friends, but now there is a 
decided coolness between them, and 
this is how it came about: 

On Sunday morning, after a stroll 
around that portion of Sausalito known 
as " Jagtown," in order to get any appetite for breakfast, a discussion 
arose as to who was the prettiest woman in the town. Eccles declared 
that his wife was. 

"I think mine is," Furlough boldly asserted. 



" I know mine is," said Eccles. 

This went on until Jagtown powder began to work when one called 

the other a liar and then they clinched and rolled over and over, and 

clawed and pummeled in great shape until someone separated them and 

they agreed to go home and leave the decision of the mooted question to 

Mrs. Eccles and Mrs. Furlough. 

They found the ladies chatting over the Sunday paper and at once 

presented their grievance for settlement. The ladies looked the two delapi- 

dited specimens over. 

" Well," said Mrs. Eccles, " what do you think, Mrs. Furlough ? " 
"I think," replied Mrs. Furlough, "that your husband was right. 

What do you think ? " 

" There ! " snorted Eccles to Furlough, " what did I tell you ? " 

" I think," replied Mrs. Eccles, " that your husband was right." 

" There ! " yelled Furlough, " what did I tell you ? " 

And they would have clinched again had their wives not dragged 

them apart and played the hose on them to cool them off. 



ikTHIS strike affect your business much?" I asked an Oakland mer- 
chant who was crossing on the creek boat. 

" It injures me more in a domestic way than in a business one," he 
replied, a sad smile hovering around his classical features. 

" How's that ? " 

"Why, my father-in-law and his wife came down from Los Angeles 
last week to stop a few days with their daughter, my wife, and goodness 
knows when they'll be able to get home again." 

I have met lots of people who have suffered much inconvenience 
from old Pullman's grasping pigheadedness, but this is the saddest case up 
to date. 

i ' I_F AVEN'T I intelligence enough to vote ? That's what I ask my hus- 
n band." 

"And what does he reply ? " 

" That I have not. He said that I did not know the difference between 
the tariff and the Ferris wheel. But I cornered him. I asked him to tell me 
wherein they differed, and he tried to put me off by saying pooh, and tut — 
regular men's arguments." 

» 1 1 T'S remarkably queer that so few young people have come to our house 
this summer," said the proprietor of a fashionable hotel at Santa Cruz- 
" Why, last season we had the prettiest lot of girls in town stopping here 
and I tell you it paid, too. I wonder what has made them all stop 
coming ? " 

Then the smart hotel clerk, with the big diamond stud gleaming like 
the headlight of an engine from his manly bosom, spoke up : 

" It does not surprise me a bit," he observed. 

" How's that? " half-indignantly asked the anxious boniface. 

" Why, didn't you advertise that the back balconies and piazzas would 
be lit up at night by electricity ? " and the disconsolate landlord saw his 
error all too late to alter it. 



1 1 OOW does this strike you ?" asked a wag of a friend who had driven 
fourteen miles to the Sixteenth-street depot in Oakland to catch the 
overland train and found none were running. He got well away before 
the man with the baggage and tired team saw the joke, and even then he 
did not appreciate it. The Buzzer. 




NOT THE FAMOUS MARE. 

Brown — Isn't that Mrs. Shanks, the lady who rode at the equestrian 
show at the Fair ? 

Smith — Don't know, I'm sure; but I'll swear it isn't "Shanks'" 
mare she's riding, anyway. 



THE WASP. 



ROUND AND ABOUT. 

T this period of financial depression, the 
only paying business is a fake of some 
flagrant kind. A particularly bald one 
is making money on Market street by 
advertising to thatch the denuded and 
shining pates of old rounders with a 
new crop of hair. The elevator force 
of the building where this fake holds 
forth has had to be increased to meet 
the rush of bald-headed old mashers 
who wish to recover their lost prestige 
in the domain of Cupid by appearing 
once more with their own hirsute 
adornments. The strangest part of the 
business is that most of them are pro- 
fessional men who are commonly sup- 
posed to have at least ordinary intelli- 
gence. I understand that the re- 
porter of a sensational morning daily 
has been making notes on the mob of 
gullible baldheads and will put the 
town on the broad grin some fine Sun- 
day very soon with the result of his 
pencilings. Snap shots by a comic 
artist of renown will add interest to the 
article. A prominent ex-political boss whose hair is noticeably thin will 
be the first subject on the list of victims. Two pictures of him will be lab- 
eled : j" Before and After." The only difference is that the flies using his 
bald pate as a skating rink in the first sketch have converted it into a to- 
boggan slide in the second, while a row of empty bottles of hair restorer 
marked " One Dollar Each " show that his purse is as bare as his head. 




A TRAVELER who had been in the Far East told a French lady that 
'* Hindu girls are taught to think of marriage as soon as they can talk. 
She — French girls are not. They don't require teaching. 

■TALKING of fakes, it is refreshing to see how the wrestlers keep on the 
even tenor of their way, playing the same old game and landing the 
same old school of suckers every time. Moth and McLeod, who at pres- 
ent seem to have an inning, are working the racket for all it is worth, if not 
considerably more. First of all, Mr. McLeod flops the burly German rep- 
resentative and wins a match. It is superfluous to say that in the dressing- 
room the vanquished athlete flew into a passion and a case of violent as- 
sault and battery for the Police Court was only averted by a miracle. 
Next day, of course, Mr. Moth challenged Mr. McLeod, who, with all the 
impulsiveness of his hot Canadian-Scotch blood, a:cepted the terms of a 
return regardless of consequences. Incidentally it is learned that Lewis 
the Strangler and other accomplished diplomats of the mat are heading for 
San Francisco. I think they had better stay away unless they like long- 
distance pedestrian exercise, for this is a most promising summer for 
stranded Eastern athletes to walk back to the more familiar bank of the 
Missouri River. 



JVIISS PASSAY {indignantly to maternal parent) — How dared you tell 
'** Mr. Spoonwell that papa was killed in the Civil War? 

Mamma — But that is the truth. What should I say, dear? 

Miss Passay — Say ! You should convey the impression that he died 
of his wound ever so many years afterwards, just after I was born, as it 
were ! 



f UCKY BALDWIN has been doing some touting for his stable in the Ex- 
aminer'm connection with an interview explaining how he won the Amer- 
ican Derby four times, a record unequaled by any turfman in the world. 
The lucky one I think quite unnecessarily winds up his bit of pardonable 
self-glorification by offering to put his Emperor of Norfolk against young 
Mr. Macdonough's Ormonde as a sire. 



( < ("* UEST — Waiter, bring me a bill of fare. 
^-* Waiter — We don't have 'em, boss. 

Guest — How do I know what I'm going to eat ? 

Waiter — Lawd boss, de bill o' fare doan' tell you. You got ter watch 
de cook to know dat. 



M 



R. BALDWIN'S proposition is that Macdonough shall raise a special 
colt or filly by Ormonde. Baldwin will raise one by Emperor of 
Norfolk and race his colt or filly when two years old against the Ormonde 
colt or filly for any amount of money. This is talking to the gallery. Mr. 
Baldwin is too good and shrewd a horseman not to know that such a pro- 
ceeding would prove nothing definitely as to the respective merits of the 
sires. Horses cannot be bred to order as if turned out of a foundry. The 
best mare in the world may produce a skate one year and a great rare- 
horse the next by the same sire. 



Baldwin would have two to one the best of it, for Macdonough would have 
twice as much money at stake in the reputation of his horse. The price 
paid for Ormonde is at least twice what the Emperor of Norfolk has ever 
been rated at. The only fair way to test such questions is by averages. 
Take ten or twenty colts and see how they average in a racing season. 



IF the wager were really made (and Mr. Macdonough is just the man to 
make it) I should, however, be inclined to put my money on the Bald- 
win stable. Not that I consider Ormonde an inferior horse to Emperor 
of Norfolk. Ormonde is inferior to no racehorse in the world in pedigree, 
performances and conformations. He is rated by the best judges of horse- 
flesh as one of the grandest-looking sires on the stud. 



I DO not think Mr. Macdonough, however, runs his racing stable on as 
good a system as the Santa Anita veteran. He is a young patrician 
and has never been thoroughly subjected to that somewhat painful but 
necessary process known in worldly affairs as " cutting his eye teeth." Mr. 
Baldwin got safely over the porformance a generation before the owner of 
Ormonde was born, and has lost no tricks ever since. When it comes to 
putting money on a futurity match race it ought to be four to one on Bald- 
win, for his horse is sure to show up fit and well, while Mr. Macdonough's 
stable is usually cursed by trainers who are either a hundred years behind 
or before the age. The fate of Manowai was a fair example of how Mr. 
Macdonough's stable has been mismanaged. The colt was as good an 
animal as was ever bred, but from being a $ 15,000 Derby candidate he 
dropped down in one year to a $1,200 selling-plater, though it is a well- 
known fact among shrewd horsemen that he could be made as good a race- 
horse by judicious handling the day Jim Neal bought him from Mr. Mac- 
donough as when the latter gave the Rancho del Paso his check for a small 
fortune for the ill-fated colt. Of course Jim Neal killed him in short order. 
Jim thought he should be handled like a prize-fighter and wakened up every 
night to punch the bag or kick a few shingles off the roof of the stable. 



CINCE Sporting Editor Horton touched Impresario Bergen on the raw by 
announcing that the motto of that enterprising showman was " Wait." 
Mr. B. has got what is technically known as a speedy "move on him," 
and actually ratified a boxing match. Frank Allen and Jim Barron are to 
box down somewhere on the line of San Mateo county where all the pool- 
room fiends are just now playing the Eastern races a la blackboard. If 
any line is to be drawn from public performances Barron has a soft snap, 
for history is very opaque on the exploits of Mr. Allen among high-class 
welter-weights. He is best known to patrons of the "squared circle " as 
the ex-janitor of the old California Athletic Club. Incidentally he did some 
teaching and helped adipose railroad attaches and fat merchants to culti- 
vate a greater thirst for beer by taking alleged boxing exercise. Polishing 
up the handle of the big front door of an athletic club does not necessarily 
make a champion and the man who handily downs such a clever customer 
as Barron has to be close up to the champion class. I should say it ought 
to be three to one that Barron wins if — but, oh, these ifs in the boxing bus- 
iness and especially just now when purses are growing smaller every hour 
and the chances of a pug's eating three meals a day grow woefully proble- 
matical. 



THE equestrian festival at the Midwinter Fair was a miserable fizzle. It 
could not be otherwise after the exhibition that Count Cornelly made 
of himself on horseback as well as of his attendant court's " jooks " and no- 
accounts at the Bay District Track. Of the no-account variety there was 
a liberal supply, oleaginous, rotund individuals, many of them who looked 
like the contented gentry in short coats that one sees sunning themselves 
on Dupont street corners or anon speeding down to their mythical ranches 
at Mayfield to elude the vigilance of Chief Crowley's special cohorts in quest 
of professional vagrants of the tenderloin district. No one ever saw a more 
motley set of riders on a more wretched lot of old skates give a worse ex- 
hibition of horsemanship. Count Cornelly as a muchly experienced faker 
ought to have known that it was financial suicide to exhibit his joblot of 
horsemen before clothing them in hand-me-down uniforms of the German 
and French armies and parading them in the Fair enclosure for a dollar a 
peep. 

The thrifty Count, however, could evidently not overcome the tempta- 
tion to let the horse-rubbers and touts of the racetrack gaze every after- 
noon on his manly form jogging round the Bay District course on a lofty 
sorrel horse like a sack of wheat poised on the apex of an Arabian camel. 
The news spread in advance of what a howling fake was in progress of 
incubation by the Count and his retinue of ready-made noblemen, and, of 
course, the public gave the fiesta a wide berth. I am glad the line has been 
drawn at the limit of gullability beyond which the public will not go. In com- 
mon with many pessimists who have wondered at the drawing power of the 
fakes in the Midwinter Fair, I thought the public would swallow anything — 
even Count Cornelly on horseback. The Rounder. 

VALUE OF GOLD. 
The pioneer, Dr. Henley's Remedy, Tamarack, is worth its weight in 
gold as a laxative and stomach regulator. Dr. Henley's Tamarack cleans 
the stomach and makes a clear head. Try it and be convinced. 



|\AR. BALDWIN'S plan of testing the merits of Emperor of Norfolk and 
Ormonde would therefore be only the wildest kind of a gamble and 



Moore's Poison Oak Remedy cures Poison Oak and all skin dis- 
eases. Sold by all Druggists.

PERSONALITIES. 



I HEAR uncomplimentary comments on all sides 
among the lovers of " a strong government " 
on the conduct of the National Guard in walking 
away from the strikers at Sacramento. As nearly 
every officer in the San Francisco companies 
is looking for public office of some kind, it is of 
course natural that they should act more like 
statesmen than soldiers in such an emergency. 
Soldiers charge or shoot. Statesmen think. 
Colonels Barry and Sullivan had to go back to the 
barracks and think and Captain Bush to faint. 
Colonel Barry is looking for a Congressional nom- 
ination and Colonel Sullivan has his weather-eye 
on the Sheriff's office. 

Uur militia should never be used, however, for 
the purpose of repressing strikers. The militia is 
an organization designed to supply an army when 
the nation is threatened from without, not to turn 
its bayonets on the breasts of fellow-citizens. 
That is the work of a regular army when riot takes 
the place of order and the civil forces are power- 
less. A single company of regulars can disperse 
a mob of 5,000 rioters more easily than a regi- 
ment of militia can and do it without spilling a 
drop of blood. A mob rarely waits to feel the 
touch of bayonets when regular forces charge. 
With militia they parley and the hot-headed, inex- 
perienced, nervous National Guardsmen is apt to 
shoot on too slight provocation. He should be 
reserved for the purposes of war when the nation 
needs reserves. 



(")N Monday, that excellent lawn-tennis player, 
"Willieboy" Wilberforce was unfortunate 
enough to lose his "set" with the elongated 
medico from Seattle, Dr. Seager, and collapsed so 
badly at the close that stimulants had to be ad- 
ministered. The dailies, who, by the bye, always 
get these things reported wrongly, stated that the 
sudden fit of faintness was caused by overtrain- 
ing. I am in a position to emphatically contra- 
dict such a misstatement of facts. Mr. Wilber- 
force was in splendid condition when he arrived 
at San Rafael, having trained for three months on 
a careful regime of toothpicks and his famous 
Plymouth gin. The true cause of the loss of the 
game and temporary heart-failure was the sight of 
James Bret Stokes crossing the lawn without hav- 
ing his flannel trousers turned up to the knees. 
Mr. Wilberforce was just in the act of making a 
swift " volly " when. the heartrending sight, made 
doubly sad and incomprehensible by the fact that 
there had been a heavy dew in Hyde Park, Lon- 
don, the night before, met his gaze, and distracted 
his attention. He was only revived by the fore- 
thought of a San Rafael compatriot, who snatched 
a copy of " Burke's Peerage" out of Jack Cas- 
serly's hand and read three chapters of that val- 
uable work to him while Hugo Toland fanned 
him with the last copy of the Court Journal. 



JW1R. CALEGAR1S, who holds the responsible 
position of President of the Italian Chamber 
of Commerce, Hon. Vice-President of the Italian 
section of the late Midwinter Fair, and Hon. Vice- 
President of the Italian Auxilliary Committee and 
also is President of the San Francisco Druggists' 
Association, is a veil known and successful busi- 
ness man of this city as well as a scientific chemist 
and linguist. 

J. Calegaris is a native of Genoa, Italy, where 
he received a liberal education. At an early age 
he spoke English, French and Spanish fluently 
and was for some years engaged in journalism, 
being the founder of a paper called Cajo Gracco. 
He was for some time a correspondent of a scientific 
paper published in Milan by Professor Polli. He 
alto wrote for the Voce del Popolo of San Fran- 
cisco. When he had completed a severe course 
of studies in pharmacy and chemistry, Mr. Cale- 
garis delivered several public lectures on literary 
and scientific subjects. He came to San Fran- 
cisco in 1 88 1 and entered the drug business, locat- 
ing at the corner of Pacific and Kearny streets 
where he has flourished ever since. 

Mr. Calegaris, being a man of education and a 



good speaker, soon became a leader in the Italian 
colony and has done much to further the interests 
and welfare of his countrymen. He eagerly 
adopted the American principles of Republicanism, 
though never forgeting the land of his berth. For 




J. CALEGARIS, ESQ. 

his services in behalf of his countrymen here the 
Italian Government recently conferred upon him 
the order of " Chevalier of the Crown of Italy," an 
honor held in high esteem. 

Mr. Calegaris is a family man and lives in a fine 
house on Lombard street surrounded by much 
prized works of art. 



QHARLES T. WILDER, who represents the 
Provisional Government of the Hawaiian 
Islands as Consul-General, is a native of Illinois, 
having been born in Geneva, Kings county, in 1 866. 
When quite a child he moved with his parents to 
Hawaii, but returned to the United States to com- 




if 



HON. CHARLES T. WILDER. 

plete his education. He graduated with honors 
from the Miami University of Ohio, and also from 
the Northwestern University at Evanstown, III. 
After his graduation, young Wilder returned to 
the Islands and went into business with his father, 
W. C. Wilder, President of the Wilder Steamship 
Co. and also President of the Kahului Railroad 
Co. He joined, too, in the wood and coal busi- 
ness also carried on under the firm name of 



Wilder & Co. Mr. Wilder stayed in the Islands 
until the establishment of the Provisional Govern- 
ment, when he was chosen to represent Hawaii 
here as the Consul-General. Mr. Wilder is an 
accomplished scholar and as a diplomat has few 
superiors. He has also a good capacity for busi- 
ness and is altogether just the man to fill the 
position he occupies with honor to himself and 
benefit to the Hawaiian Government. 



I 



HEARD a most harrowing account of the heart- 
less manner in which poor Mrs. Brown-Potter 
was treated at Yokohama on her way here. She 
and her company had come on the Peru from a 
port where the black plague was raging, and the 
vessel immediately upon its arrival was put in 
quarantine. The passengers were then all ordered 
to go ashore and take a medicated bath while 
their clothes were fumigated. At this official com- 
mand the fair Potter kicked like the proverbial 
steer. All her protestations, however, were in 
vain and she had to submit like the others with 
the best grace she could. After the bath all were 
provided with "robes de bain," in which they 
walked about barefooted until such time as their 
clothes were properly cooked. Now, Mrs. Potter 
is most adverse to displaying her shape except 
under the most advantageous conditions and with 
all the stage accessories. I am told that jhe 
marched up and down raving like King Lear in 
the mad scene, her ample feet in all their native 
beauty stamping on the stone floor to give extra 
emphasis to her burning words. In fact she never 
stopped raving about it until she arrived here, and 
so impressed the other passengers with the gen- 
eral anxiety about her non-arrival on time, that 
when they noticed the excitement around the 
docks and streets, caused by the railroad strike, 
they all thought it was Mrs. Brown-Potter's pres- 
ence which caused it. 



IT has been a source of wonder to me why Vis- 
count Cornelly has been making such a promi- 
nent feature of himself at the great equistrian 
fiasco, and drawing down on himself remarks 
more truthful than flattering. In now transpires 
that the Viscount, who has always an eye for the 
practical, has a grand scheme in view. In con- 
nection with Mrs. Shanks, Count Bottledbeer and 
Baron Bang, assisted by lesser lights of the 
nobility, he proposes to start a riding-school, 
where our " Four Hundred " can learn the noble 
art of equestrianism. Particular attention will be 
paid to perfecting wealthy Nob Hill young ladies 
in riding and Baron Bang will act as master of the 
stirrups. It is the Viscount's intention to import 
quite a number of titled foreigners who will act in 
various capacities about the place and at the same 
time accommodate any lady old or young who 
wishes to buy a title cheap. 



I HEAR it whispered that the action of the 
local Democratic powers in giving Max 
Popper full swing is part of a dark scheme of 
Boss Buckley, who is pulling every wire to insure 
the complete overthrow of his old party this year. 
He wants Max at the head of the organization 
when the deluge occurs. The Biographer.

Moore's fine old Kentucky Whisky, which tones 
the system, invigorates the nerves and strengthens 
the stomach. Try it and see. 

AN INSTANTANEOUS SUCCESS. 

Why ? Because the general public have made 
it so. The manufacturers knew that all that was 
wanted to make the " Silver Champion Cigar " an 
instantaneous success was to give quality as well 
as quantity.

and was well supported by the stroiig company 
now playing at this theatre. The piece is full of 
incident and thrilling situations and the interest 
never seems to flag. A new soubrette, Miss Lou 
Ripley, made her bow to the audience in this 
play. She was well received and bids f-iir to be- 
come quite popular. 

MANAGER — Yes; we're going to bring out a 
new farce-comedy next season. 

Friend — What is the idea ? 

Manager — We haven't got so far as that yet, 
but our leading man has hit on a dandy make-up.

" Oueena " and will play an important role in 
" The Pride of the Mayo " next week.

4 4 TAR AND TARTAR" has had a long run at 
1 the Tivoli and it well deserved it, for the 
piece is full of rollicking fun, good songs and 
passable music. Next week it will give place to 
" Dick Turpin," by Bowness Briggs and Grattan 
Donelly. The former gentleman, who hails from 
Philadelphia and graduated at its university as 
Bachelor of Music, has been here for over two 
weeks and is personally superintending the re- 
hearsals at the Tivoli. He was a trifle surprised, 
by the bye, to find out on his arrival here that 
two or three of the local papers had announced 
him as " Baroness " Briggs instead of Bowness 
and disclaimed all right to the title. Those who 
have attended the rehearsals speak well of the 
romantic opera and its musical setting. 



I^YRLE BELLE W and Mrs. Potter will open in 
**■ " Therese " at the Baldwin on July 9th. 
The former was considered the best actor in 
England in his particular line, and Mrs. Potter is 
said to have vastly improved during the past six 
months. The engagement will necessarily be a 
short one as John Drew will follow on the 16th 
with "Butterflies." The delay of the steamer in 
which the Bellew-Potter company sailed is the 
cause of all this delay. The " Butterflies " ran 
for over a hundred nights at Palmer's Theatre, 
New York, and Drew himself made a big hit.

A T the California, Harrigan's good play, " Old 
^* Lavender," was well received. Harrigan 
himself took the part of the broken-down old swell 
and was as usual, excellent. This play differs 
from most of those which this versatile actor and 
playright has produced, in that there is an under- 
current of sentiment pervading the whole piece. 
The support was fairly good.but could be improved 
upon in some instances. This will make Harri- 
gan's third week at the California, but his aud- 
iences have not decreased so far.

THE Orpheum presented its host of patrons with 
a fine programme during the week just 
passed. The Braatz brothers, first-class acrobats, 
did some excellent work, their double-stair per- 
formance being unique in its way. "Ten Nights 
in a Barroom," an extravaganza of the most 
amusing description by Connors and Haley, was 
good, as also were the parodies and songs of 
O'Brien and Carroll. The comic songs of Charles 
H. Duncan were loudly encored. Miss Inez 
Dean sang in splendid voice and Mons. Sparrow 
and the Wilmots with O'Brien and Redding 
helped to make up as good an evening's enter- 
tainment as any in town.

THE Brotherhood of Elks had a grand picnic at 
Elk Grove last Sunday and gave an open air 
performance of " Babes in the Wood." The skit 
had, however, nothing in common with the old 
nursery rhyme. Messrs. Leary, Casey, Noonan 
and Dudley represented the various characters, 
Ferris Hartman sang songs and told stories, 
Leary and Watts gave some specialties and 
W. J. Talbot, the tenor, sang a good song. Alto- 
gether the programme was a thoroughly enjoyable 
one. 

The First nighter. 




By A Sharp. 



A NOTHER slight was cast upon art in the form of 
a testimonial concert tendered to a certain Mr. 
Walter J. Talbot, an unfortunate pupil of a cer- 
tain Mr. J. W. McKenzie who evidently does not 
teach singing (even if he would he could not be- 
cause he knows nothing about it), but drums into 
the heads of his pupils some ballads which they 
repeat like screeching parrots. Poor Mr. Talbot ! 
He has a pretty good tenor voice, but is losing his 
time and money unless his goal was reached when 
he was singing at the People's Palace. If some 
good people wish to help a person, why do they 
not raise a fund among them and make up a nice 
little purse for the benefit of their protege instead 
of aiding to make a burlesque of art ? The grand 
sight was when the great professor led his chorus 
of sixty voices ! Impotence and impudence are 
the only words that can give a faint idea of such 
a musical outrage. And lo ! the audience ap- 
plauded in rapture and the Fourth of July Com- 
mittee secured the services of Mr. McKenzie and 
his wonderful chorus. But what of it when even 
Mr. Joullin is awarded' a gold medal for having 
soiled a canvas with a most shameful blot. 



INTRIGUERS have obtained an alarming foot- 
hold in San Francisco. While the true artist 
studies continually, wishing to improve himself, 
and exercises his art with decorum, hoping for 
public appreciation, braggarts, humbugs, bare- 
faced imposters speculate boldly upon the igno- 
rance of the many and succeed in their harmful 
work to the detriment of genuine artists who are 
thus prevented from gaining an independent situ- 
ation worthy of their lofty aspiration. 



IT took one-half an hour to set correct four bars 
of the Freischutz Overture at the first rehearsal 
of the Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of 
its new leader, F. Scheel. The members were all 
in a perspiration when the rehearsal was brought 
to a close, but they began to have an idea of how 
to practice and later on we shall hear the good 
results that the perseverance of each member and 
the artistic influence of Mr. Scheel is bound to 
cause. 

IT seems that Mr. Scheel intends to open a sea- 
son of orchestral concerts early next August. 
To be sure all lovers of good music will look for- 
ward with anxiety to those concerts which will re- 
new for them the elevated enjoyment experienced 
last winter, but I firmly believe that it is too early 
in the season to begin such an enterprise which, if 
not actuated in the proper time, I am sorry to say 



THE WASP. 



will not bring the financial success deserved. 
Neither would I advise Mr. Scheel to promise too 
long a season, remembering the discouraging fact 
that in all the United States only Boston is able 
to pay the luxury of orzhestral concerts, and from 
what is my knowledge, all our learned patrons of 
the divine art, our soi-iiisant Mecenates, will cer- 
tainly back the artists with — sentimental words but 
when the time comes to show up some of their 
yellow metal, then they politely, oh very politely, 
w.ll in all probability shrug their shoulders, and if 
perchance Mr. Scheel would like to meet them 
again to talk over the matter he will find them in 
some of the two-bit shows. 



/"■RILENWAY, who Shopenhour, the great Ger- 
man philosopher, the enemy of "Society,'' 
would at least stigmatize a blockhead, gets a com- 
mission, it is said, even from the musicians em 
ployed at some social gatherings; though lately he 
did not succeed in having his own set of musicians 
play at the Hotel Rafael. The sign of his little 
revenge is in consequence seen in an article in- 
spired by him in a daily paper which abuses Mr 
Siering, Mr. Gutterson and Mr. Cruells, who are 
playing at Hotel Rafael. The fact is, that these 
capable musicians make good programmes and 
execute them in a commendable manner. Pos- 
sibly this paragraph may open a new field for Mr 
Chambliss' book. Anyhow " Society," like 
" Musical Art," in San Francisco, is oscillating on 
a spurious level.

©AN FRANCISCO AND THE SURROUND- 
v ing country has been in a tumult of excite- 
ment the past week, such as it has never witnessed 
before. There have been two causes directly re- 
sponsible for the turor which are entirely distinct 
in their nature. One, of course, is the great strike 
of railway operatives which has reached from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific. The other is the phenom- 
enal and exceedingly extraordinary results ob- 
tained, and marvelously remarkable cures per- 
formed, by Dr. Franklin Stuart Temple, The Boy 
Phenomenon, whose record of cures in San Fran- 
cisco has already reached from ocean to ocean. 

The many remarkable cures of well-known citi- 
zens that have been performed upon the public 
stages of the Alcazar Theatre and Metropolitan 
Hall the past two weeks have been of such a con- 
vincing nature and so enthusiastically received by 
a discriminating public that there is positively no 
longer any room to doubt the wonderful efficacy 
of Animal Magnetism and the great powers pos- 
sessed by this Boy Wonder in the cure of disease. 

Space forbids a more extended notice, but those 
who desire to witness a demonstration of this Won- 
derful Power will have one more opportunity, 
TO-MORROW NIGHT, Sunday, July 8th, at AL- 
CAZAR THEATRE. Admission, free; seats, 
free ; treatment on stage at Theatre, free.

ment may call at his office :

KENNEDY'S NEMESIS. 
An Operatic Drygoods Drama in One Thrilling Act. 



{Synopsis of Drama.) 



A SMALL cash-boy, having been kicked by the 
*"* Tyrant Kennedy, the autocrat of O'Connor 
& Profits' drygoods store, demands satisfaction. 
He appears in the legal ring, friendless, but reso- 
lute. His burly opponent shows up in a pair of 
copper-riveted overalls, the special product of a 
Hebrew wholesale firm which is supposed to have 
a strong grip on O'Connor & Profits establishment. 
One of the Costello brothers, the heirs of the late 
Bryan O'Connor, is bottle-holder for the whiskered 
autocrat ; another holds the fan. In the crowd of 
hired retainers acting as seconds, referee, time- 
keepers, on-lookers, etc., are F. Warren, a veteran 
of the National Guards' retreat from the Sacra- 
mento depot; also Messrs. Sheehan, Murray, Daily, 
Gorman and Alexander, who secretly sympathize 
with the small boy, but whose interests are on the 
other side. In the midst of the turmoil the shade of 
O'Connor appears and addresses the belligerents. 

SCENE FIRST AND LAST — THE RING. 



Enter small boy singing air 
Battle, Mother." 



'Just Before the 



Small Boy — 

"Just before the battle, mother, 

I am lonely as can be, 
Not a friend, a chum or brother 
Is around to comfort me. 



" I'm not flinching from the battle, 
Like our brave National Guard, 

Who stampeded like scared cattle, 
When affairs looked pretty hard. 

" He's much bigger than me, mother. 

But my heart shall know no fear, 
And if death take one or other 

And it's me, don't shed a tear. 

" Tell my brother I fell, facing 
Kennedy, in first-class shape, 

With no Mitchell-like foot-racing 
From the conflict to escape." 

Enter Kennedy — 

" Just before the battle, comrades, 

Victory I'm sure I'll win, 
And we'll celebrate the conquest 

With a case of sparkling gin. 

" Feel my biceps, they are swelling, 

Eager for the coming fray ; 
Never have I felt much better 

Than on this eventful day." 
Enter Costello Brothers — 

" Sail in boldly, with blows smother 

Such a most unworthy foe ; 
Bung him up so that his mother 

Shall not e'en her own child know. 



" Give him the La Blanche back-hander, 

Pop it in behind his ear. 
Get right up upon your dander, 

Take a good long pull ol beer." 

Shade of O'Connor — 

"What's this folly — are you crazy 

Thus your troubles to parade. 
Thus to rouse from peaceful slumbers 
Even my departed shade. 

" All get back behind your counters, 
Ply your scissors and your tape, 

Thank your stars from bogs of Ireland. 
That you ever did escape." 

Chorus of Hired Retainers — 

" 'Rah ! for Kennedy; he'll lick him 

Just as sure as we are born ; 

Give the big great drum a wallop, 

Loudly toot the festive horn. 

" If he'd been at Sacramento, 

How the strikers would have fled, 
But he wouldn't risk the journey, 
He's got much too big a head." 
[Hired retainers shout in such a babel of 
County Cork and Kerry brogues that the good 
American plate glass in the front window breaks 
with a terrific crash and the shade of O'Connor flies 
shrieking through the aperture.]

THE WASP 



THE TORTURE OF HOPE. 




CARCELY had the ves- 
per bell ceased to toll 
« hen Pedro Arbuez 
ri'Espila, the vener- 
able sixth prior of the 
Dominicans of San 
Segoria and Grand In- 
quisitor of Spain, fol- 
lowed by a f>a redemptor 
and preceded by four famil- 
iars of the Holy Office, made 
his way to one of the sub- 
terranean dungeons in which the flickering lan- 
terns of the attendant monks revealed a haggard 
man of middle age, seated on a litter of straw. 
His neck was encircled by an iron carcan and his 
attire consisted of rags in which his limbs, attenu- 
ated by prolonged hunger and mental suffering, 
were freely exposed. The prisoner was Rabbi 
Aser Abarbanel, famed among the Jews of Arra- 
gon for his devotion to the Mosaic doctrines. He 
had been accused of usury and scorn of the poor and 
for a year had been daily subjected to the tortures 
of the Inquisition. Yet, as his devout reformers 
expressed it, " his blindness was as dense as his 
hide," and he had refused to abjure the faith of 
Judah and espouse the doctrines of Christianity 
as proffered by the devout Pedro Arbuez d'Es- 
pila. 

Proud of a filiation dating back thousands of 
years, proud of his ancestors — for all Jews worthy 
of the name are vain of their blood — he descended 
Talmudically from Othoniel and consequently 
from Ipsiboa, the wife of the last judge of Israel, 
had sustained his courage amid unceasing torture. 
With tears in his eyes at the thought of this reso- 
lute soul rejecting salvation, the venerable Pedro 
Arbuez d'Espila, approaching the shuddering 
rabbi, addressed him as follows : 

"My son, rejoice; your trials here below are 
about to end. If in the presence of such obstinacy 
I was forced to permit, with deep regret, the use 
of great severity, my task of fraternal correction 
has its limits. You are the fig-tree which, having 
failed so many times to bear fruit, at last withered, 
but God alone can judge your soul. Perhaps In- 
finite Mercy will shine upon you at the last mo- 
ment ! We must hope so. There are examples. 
So sleep in peace to night. To-morrow you will 
be included in the auto dafe; that is, you will be 
exposed to the quemadera, the symbolical flames 
of the Everlasting Fire ; it burns, as you know, 
only at a distance, my son ; and Death is at least 
two hours (often three) in coming, on account of 
the wet, iced bandages with which we protect the 
heads and hearts of the condemned. There will 
be fifty of you. Placed in the last row, you will 
have time to invoke God and offer to Him this 
baptismal of fire which is of the Holy Spirit. 
Hope in the Light, and rest." 

With these words, having signed to his com- 
panions to unchain the prisoner, the prior tenderly 
embraced him. Then came the turn of the fra 
redemptor, who, in a low tone, entreated the Jew's 
forgiveness for what he had made him suffer for 
the purpose of redeeming him ; then the familiars 
silently kissed him. This ceremony over, the cap- 
tive was left to his thoughts, solitary and bewild- 
ered, in the darkness. 

Rabbi Aser Abarbanel, with parched lips and 
visage worn by suffering, dragged himself toward 
the door. Marvelous ! By an extraordinary ac- 
cident the familiar who closed it had turned the 
huge key an instant before it struck the stone cas- 
ing, so that the rusty bolt not having entered the 
hole, the door again rolled on its hinges. 

The rabbi ventured to glance outside. He saw 
only a semi-circle of walls indented by winding- 
stairs ; and opposite to him, at the top of five or 
six stone steps, a sort of black portal, opening into 
an immense corridor. 

He crept to the threshold. Yes, it was really a 
corridor, but endless in length. A wan light illum- 
ined it : lamps suspended from the vaulted ceiling 
lightened at intervals the dull hue of the atmosphere 
— the distance was veiled in shadow. Not a single 



door appeared in the whole extent ! Only on one 
side, the left, heavily grated loop holes, sunk in 
the walls, admitted a dim light. Yet, yonder, at 
the tar end of that passage there might be a door- 
way of escape ! The Jew's vacillating hope was 
tenacious, for it was the last. 

Without hesitating, he ventured on the flags, 
keeping close under the loop-holes, trying to make 
himself part of the blackness of the long walls. 
He advanced slowly, dragging himself along on 
his breast, forcing back the cry of pain when some 
raw wound sent a keen pang through his whole 
body. 

Suddenly the sound of a sandaled foot ap- 
proaching reached his ear. He trembled violent- 
ly, fear stifled him, his sight grew dim. Well, it 
was over, no doubt. He pressed himself into a 
niche and, half lifeless with terror, waited. 

It was a familiar hurrying along. He passed 
swiftly by, holding in his clenched hand an instru- 
ment of torture — a frightful figure — and vanished. 
The suspense which the rabbi had endured seemed 
to have suspended the functions of life, and he lay 
nearly an hour unable to move. Fearing an in- 
crease of tortures if he were captured, he thought 
of reluming to his dungeon. But the old hope 
whispered in his soul that divine perhaps, which 
comforts us in our sorest trials. A miracle had 
happened. He could doubt no longer. He began 
to crawl toward the chance of escape. Exhausted 
by suffering and hunger, trembling with pain, he 
pressed onward. The sepulchral corridor seemed 
to lengthen mysteriously, while he, still advanc- 
ing, gazed into the gloom where there must be 
some avenue of escape. 

But hush ! He again heard footsteps, but this 
time they were slower, more heavy. The white 
and black forms of two inquisitors appeared, 
emerging from the obscurity beyond. They were 
conversing in low tones, and seemed to be dis- 
cussing some important subject, for they were ges- 
ticulating vehemently. 

At this spectacle Rabbi Aser Abarbanel closed 
his eyes : his heart beat so violently that it almost 
suffocated him ; his rags were damp with the cold 
sweat of agony ; he lay motionless by the wall, 
his mouth wide open, under the rays of a lamp, 
praying to the God of David. 

Just opposite to him the two inquisitors pused 
under the light of the lamp. One, while listening 
to his companion, seemed to gaze at the rabbi ! 
And, beneath the look he fancied he again felt 
the burning pincers scorch his flesh, he was to be 
once more a living wound. Fainting, breathless, 
with fluttering eyelids, he shivered at the touch of 
the monk's floating robe. But, strange, the in- 
quisitor's gaze was evidently that of a man deeply 
absorbed in his intended reply, engrossed by what 
he was hearing ; they were fixed — and seemed to 
looked at the Jew without seeing him. 

After the lapse of a few minutes, the two 
gloomy figures slowly pursued their way, still 
conversing in low tones, toward the place whence 
the prisoner had come ; he had not been seen ! 
Amid the horrible confusion of the rabbi's 
thoughts, the idea darted through his brain : 
" Can I be already dead that they did not see 
me?" A hideous impression roused him from 
his lethargy : in looking at the wall against which 
his face was pressed, he imagined he beheld 
two fierce eyes watching him ! He flung his 
head back in a sudden frenzy of fright, his hair 
fairly bristling ! Yet, no ! No. His hand groped 
over the stones : it was the reflection of the in- 
quisitor's eyes, still retained in his own, which 
had been refracted from two spots on the wall. 

Forward ! He must hasten toward the goal 
which he fancied (absurdly, no doubt) to be de- 
liverance, towards the darkness from which he 
was now barely thirty paces distant. He pressed 
forward faster on his knees, his hands, at full 
length, dragging himself painfully along, and soon 
entered the dark portion of this terrible corridor. 

Suddenly the poor wretch felt a gust of cold air 
on the hands resting upon the flags ; it came from 
under the little door to which the two walls led. 

The door had opened into the gardens, above 
which arched a starlit sky, into spring, liberty, 
life ! It revealed the neighboring fields, stretch- 
ing toward the sierras, whose sinuous blue lines 
were relieved against the horizon. Yonder lay 
freedom! Oh, to escape ! He would journey all 



night through the lemon groves, whose fragrance 
reached him. Once in the mountains and he was 
safe! He inhaled the delicious air; the breeze 
revived him, his lungs expanded ! He felt in his 
swelling heart the gratitude of Lazarus ! And to 
thank once more the God who had bestowed this 
mercy upon him, he extended his arms, raising 
his eyes toward heaven. It was an ecstasy of 
joy! 

Then he fancied he saw the shadow of his arms 
approach him — fancied that he felt these shadowy 
arms inclose, embrace him — and that he was 
pressed tenderly to someone's breast. A tall fig- 
ure actually did stand directly before him. Hor- 
ror ! He was in the firm clasp of the Grand In- 
quisitor himself, the venerable Pedro Arbuez 
d'Espila, who gazed at him with tuarful eyes, like 
a good shepherd who had found his stray lamb. 

The dark-robed priest pressed the hapless Jew 
to his heart with so fervent an outburst of love, 
that the edges of the monochal hair-cloth rubbed 
the Dominican's breast. And while Aser Abar- 
banel with protruding eyes gasped in agony in the 
ascetic's embrace, vaguely comprehending that 
all the phases of this fatal evening were only a 
pre-arranged torture, that of Hope, the Grand 
Inquisitor, with an accent of touching reproach and 
a look of consternation, mumured in his ear, his 
breath parched and burning from long fasting : 

" What, my son ! On the eve, perchance, of 
salvation — vou wished to leave us ? "— \_From the 
French of De L Isle Adam by L E. E.

THE WASP. 




T WAS persuaded the other evening 
by Mrs. Martha Spriggs to accom- 
pany her to a spiritualistic seance. I 
do not believe in such things and told 
her so plainly, but she seemed so much 
iS^f &£( m earnest that I did not like to refuse 

her. 

It was a woman medium we went 
to see, and when we got there she 
i'as just getting "messages," as she called them, by means of raps on a 
i .ble. As soon as she saw Mrs. Spriggs she cried out : 

" You are just the lady I wanted to see ; there have been several mes- 
s ges for you." 

"Who from?" exclaimed Mrs. S., who was now in a great state of 
excitement. 

" From your late husband," replied the medium with due solemnity. 
Mrs. Spriggs took her seat at the table and asked several questions 
regarding the settlement of some business matters. She then said : 
"Oh, Harry, are you happy in the other world?" 
" Indeed, I am," was tapped out in answer. 

" Happier, dear, than you were when you were on earth with me?" 
" Well, I should snicker." 
" Then you must be in heaven, love." 

" On the contrary, I'm away down in the other direction," answered 
the spirit, and a look of amused astonishment came over the faces of all 
present, except that of Mrs. Spriggs. She got up and left the table, and, 
c tiling me, bounced out of the room and house. She says now that she 
h.iS lost all faith in spiritualism, and I am glad of it. 

I NEVER had any faith in spiritualism since I went to a seance out at the 
Mission, near Twentieth street, given by Miss Lulu L'ollie, or some 
n. me of that sort. I wasn't in the room a minute when I got a message 
from "my twins." Just think of it! A message like that to me who 
1 ever even contemplated matrimony ! I thought I'd have died on the 
spot. It was all I could do to keep from fainting, and to make matters worse, 
there was old Deacon Progg of our church sitting right opposite with his 
gaze fixed on me. I was thinking of suing the woman for libel, but con- 
cluded to let the insult pass ; but I've done with spiritual seances in the 
.Mission. 

MRS. TATTELLE, the fat milliner who fools so many giddy society 
ladies from Tehama street with imported hats (imported from China- 
town), called on me the other day to go with her to be cured by the Hob- 
bledehoy Wonder. I went sorely against my will, for I consider it sacri- 
lege of the worst kind to have some vulgarian with the brain of a sausage 
and as much spiritual refinement as a carhorse emulating the miracles of 
the Messiah by laying-on of hands. 

AS soon as I got my eye on the Hobbledehoy Wonder I couldn't help 
thinking that if I had a hen-roost I wouldn't like to have him lay his 
hinds on any part of it. If ever I saw an expression of countenance that 
i.ut me on my guard, it was on that "healer." " Heeler" would fit h.m 
better. 

My fat milliner friend hoped to be cured of rheumatism, that's what 
she calls it. I don't want to cast any reflections, but I've always noticed 
that women who are troubled with rheumatism in San Francisco have gen- 
erally a lot of empty beer bottles on their premises. Anyhow she needed 
assistance. The Hobbledehoy Wonder pawed her all over. 

" Oh, my, I feel the electricity a-goin' to my head," she exclaimed as 
he laid one of his flippers back of her ears. I had to hide my face in my 
handkerchief for I knew what was going to her head. It was the cocktail 
she swallowed in the cafe round the corner. I guess, though, one cocktail 
wouldn't get very far up in her head. 

"THE Hobbledehoy Wonder next pawed her down the spine and round 

the waistband, and whenever he got his claw on her, she squirmed 
hk; an eel that was being tickled down the back with a jack-knife. 

" Don't yer feel ever so much better naow ? " the Wonder inquired. 

" I feel like another woman," she murmured, but she wasn't all the 
same, for when the Hobbledehoy asked her for his fee, she got mad as a 
w et hen. 

"Charge me $10 for that?" said she. " Don't you know my mill- 
irery store is the headquarters of all the swell ladies in town, and it's there 
[hey come to get points on everything ? I can queer you if I want." 



" Oh, you're a milliner are you ? Why didn't you tell me that be- 
fore ?" 

" What for ? " 

" Why, I'd have connected the electric light with you an' given you 
a dose of electricity that would have some effect on you." 



1V10VV she's telling all her patrons that the Hobbledehoy Wonder is the 
biggest fake that ever came to town and that he couldn't cure a dead 
herring if he had it in a salt factory with all the doors closed. 

I don't know that it's as bad as that, but certainly from what I saw he 
is, in the language of my fat milliner friend, " very rank " 

It's terrible to think of the cold-blooded fakes that are perpetrated in 
this town, and the balder the imposition, the better the public like it. 

My old grandfather, Silas Twiggs, used to tell us that once when he 
went to York to see the circus, he heard fWnum himself say that "the 
American public likes nothing so well as to be filled with prunes."

ROBINSON'S PAINTING. 
f~\ H, Robinson an artist was, 
^ Of wisdom and renown ; 
Whene'er he touched his pictures up, 

The critics touched them down. 
He hung a canvas in the Fair, 

A golden prize to gain ; 
But when the judges saw the thing, 

Why each one had a pain. 
Director-General de Young, 

Who prizes gives at will, 
Said Robinson was off his base. 

Or surely had a " still " 
When he that awful picture drew 

And sent it to the Fair. 
These words sore troubled Robinson, 

He forthwith then and there, 
Took out his keen-edged jack-knife 

And slashed the canvas through. 
Now crowds surround the empty frame, 

And all its beauties view. 
The moral taught by Robinson, 

To artists all is plain : 
Hang empty frames on view, and you 

The public eye will gain. The Dealer.

FOR DYSPEPSIA AND NERVOUSNESS 
USE horsford's acid phosphate. 

Dr. C. D. Cleveland, San Francisco, Cal., 
says : " It is eminently useful in dyspepsia, and in 
all forms of indigestion ; thus, it becomes a tonic 
and sedative, exciting all the vital functions, calm- 
ing nervous irritation. It is acceptable to the 
stomach in cases of dyspepsia, where other medi- 
caments are rejected.

JACK GOLDBY— That's the rich 
J old Mr. Munn with Miss Bran- 
son. They say she's going to marry 
him for his money. 

Mrs. Upperten {enthusiastically) 
— Well, it's positively refreshing to 
hear of at least one sensible girl mak- 
ing a good, old-fashioned love match, 
instead of throwing herself at a pen- 
niless foreign nobleman. 

IW1USLIN the sweet girl graduate 
doesn't make her less danger- 




THE RIGHT EXPRESSION. 

Artist — Please try to look a little bit haughty, Mrs. Van Ness. Think 
of something pleasant. 

Mrs. Van Ness — All right. (To herself:) I'll think of my late di- 
vorce suit. 



MRS. BROWN— Some people say 
that our minister is preaching 
exactly the same sermons he deliv- 
ered two years ago. 

Brown — Such statements ought to 
make him feel happy. 
Mrs. Brown — Why ? 
Brown — They indicate that some 
one has been listening to him. 



DOBBY BINGO (at his mothers din- 
'-' tier party) — This is the first din- 
ner mamma would let me sit at the 
table with the company. 

One of the Guests — Then you 
are not very well acquainted here, are 
you, Bobby ? 

Bobby — No, sir ; I don't even know 
who all this silver belongs to. 



<t VOU'LL have to wear specta- 
' cles," said the doctor. 

" I'd pwefer a monocle said Chap- 
pie. 

"But both of your eyes are

" Then I shall wear two monocles," 
said Chappie. 

i i PvO farmers like short stories ? " 
*-^ he asked as he crept into the 

agricultural editor's room. 

" No, they are more interested in 

the production of cereals." 

D EFORE some preachers will throw 
u a stone at a sin they want to 
know who is hiding under it. 

4 i 'THAT'S what I get for my pains," 
* sobbed the small boy as he 
swallowed a dose of castor oil.

There is more Catarrh in this section of the 
country than all other dheases put together, and 
until the last few years was supposed to be incur- 
able. For a great many years doctors pronounced 
it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, 
and by constantly failing to cure with local treat- 
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has 
proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and 
therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's 
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & 
Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure 
on the market. It is taken internally in doses 
from jo drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly 
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. 
They offer one hundred dollars for any case it 
fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials.

'TOMMY — Maw, the teacher wants 
' us to give the difference between 
" hope " and " expect." 

Mrs. Figg — Well, I hope to meet 
your father in the next world, but I 
hardly expect to. 

CHE — If you have really lost every - 
'-' thing, Lord Albion, I see no help 
for you but to marry an American 
heiress. 

His Lordship (with decision) — A 
fellah may be unfortunate, but he 
ought to consider his family.

ISS ANNA GOULD is just at present in the 
hands of the Jenkinses of the Associated 
Press, who are doing their level best to marry 
Jay's rich daughter to a prince of the blood 
royal, in the person of Prince Francis Joseph 
of Battenberg, whose brother married Queen 
Victoria's youngest daughter, Beatrice. The 
gentleman in question has a long pedigree, 
but a woefully short payroll, his income 
amounting to the munificent sum of $1,000 a 
year. Miss Gould's millions would come in 
very useful, and as the sister-in-law of the 
Princess Beatrice she would shine with a reflected grandeur that would 
make the Colonnas and German barons look exceedingly small. The fact 
that the royal suitor's pedigree is not quite spotless, he being only the off- 
spring of a kingly father by a morganatic marriage with a lady of Hebrew 
extraction who would not be accepted without reserve by the regal family, 
cuts no figure in the case. As long as the gentleman has a title, it makes 
no difference if his escutcheon was as full of spots as a National Guards- 
men's uniform after a week's hard campaigning in the beer-joints of Sac- 
ramento. American millions for degraded European titles is the order of 
exchange in these days. The hard-fisted old fathers cheat the very devil 
to make a fortune and the feather-headed daughters endow the stealings 
on the first worthless fop that can give them the right to display their best 
gowns and biggest diamonds at the courts of St. James or Berlin. 

* * * 

CECRETARY CARLISLE has been whitewashed by the Sugar Investi- 
gating Committee from all complicity in the scandalous sugar tariff 
bill, but he has yet to explain why he failed to discover " the nigger on the 
fence " when he was asked to assist in drafting the sugar schedule. We 
are all after the " sugar," more or less successfully, but this late attempted 
steal, though the subject is sweet, is most unsavory. 

* * * 

1 1 IMAGINE the vast improvement in the political atmosphere of the city 
if the Spring Valley Company were eliminated as a polluting ele- 
ment," observed the spokesman of the Iroquois Club committee, which 
handed in its report last week. It seems a little rough to call water a 
" polluting element." No doubt water, from an Iroquois standpoint, is a 
polluting element, especially when it is introduced into whisky. On look- 
ing over the names of the committee, however, it seems difficult to under- 
stand where these gentlemen educated themselves up to a knowledge of 
Spring Valley. For purposes of ablution they have probably used it more 
or less, but as a beverage — never. Oh, no ; they are not that sort. They 

take theirs straight. 

* * * 

THE Midwinter Fair is over. Its last days were marked by a blaze of 

glory, a blare of trumpets and a sort of half circus, racetrack and 

Wild West show. Viscount Cornelly, arrayed like Solomon in all his 



glory, attended the last rites, assisted by barons and counts of various de- 
grees of nobility. The Viscount raised clouds of dust as he galloped about 
the arena, and seemed as big a success at it as he is said to be at " raising 
the wind." Mrs. Shanks on horseback (not riding on Shanks' mare) and 
the ample Mrs. Gray flew hurdles on horseback with a count and a baron 
for cavaliers, and the aristocracy of all nations was represented. Cavalry, 
French, German and English, showed what they didn't know about riding, 
the last-mentioned doing some really artistic tumbling. Cowboys chased 
rideless horses, to the imminent peril of spectators, and the Fair may have 
said to have expired on horseback. The next, and probably most exciting, 
event of the whole business will be the dividing of the spoils (if there are 

any left). 

* * * 

IN the death of Colonel F. H. Meyers, Alameda county has lost one of its 
most progressive citizens, and the Republican party a staunch supporter, 
earnest politician and practical worker. The late gentleman was chairman 
of the last Republican State Central Committee, and his death was mainly 
brought about by an illness contracted while attending to his duties at the 
late State Convention. The electric car line to Alameda owed its origin to 
Colonel Meyers' foresight. Without this line the Alameda people would 
be now practically cut off from communication with Oakland or San Fran- 
cisco. 

* * * 

\X7H1LE the country is in a state of turmoil, the sugar tariff bill is at- 
tracting universal attention, and the situation is indeed grave all 
round. Senator Call occupies the attention of the house by a diatribe on 
the press for making fun of him for taking off his shoes during a session of 
Congress. It created a pleasant diversion from more serious subjects, but 
reminded a good many of Nero playing the fiddle while Rome was burning. 
The sensitive Senator by no means improved his case or covered up his 
feet by his speech. 



/"• OVERNOR MARKHAM is raising a big rumpus because he was unable 
to come to Sacramento from Pasadena on account of the strike. He 
has telegraphed and telephoned to the railroad people and the strikers for 
assistance, but he seems to have entirely overlooked the fact that there is 
a line of steamers running from Los Angeles, here, and that a train would 
no doubt be placed at the Governor's disposal to carry him to the scene of 
action. Over there the great warrior would at once assume command 
of the forces, rout the strikers and add fresh laurels to his brilliant war 
record. The fact that the Executive prefers to vegetate in the far distance 
of Los Angeles county inclines us to the horrible suspicion that an insur- 
mountable barrier interposes itself to his trip by water. He is afraid of 
seasickness. What a glorious ornament to our heroic National Guard a 
seasick Governor would make ! 




EVERYTHING BUT THAT. 

Miller — Hello ! Robinson. Waiting for the moon to come up ? 
Robinson (very seasick) — No; didn't swallow that !

THE WASP. 



ROUND AND ABOUT. 



Y REASON of the railroad tie-up, the 
S. P. R. R. put on a boat last Saturday 
for Suisun and way ports. Among 
the passengers was W. M. Neilson, 
the gentleman whose last trip to our 
metropolis was fraught with so much 
anxiety about himself. Being a gen- 
tleman of extensive travel and great 
foresight, he invested ten cents in 
"cough-drops," remarking to a 
friend as he did so : 

" I caught a terrible cold in this 
city, this trip." 

" I," shouted his friend (?), know- 
ing that the distinguished journalist 
and all-round blow-hard was accom- 
modatingly deaf. 

" Cawn't hear you," replied the 
"Neilson," in his choicest Colonial 
dialect. 

His friend made a grab for the 
phonograph sound-distributor, in- 
tending to use it as an improvised 
speaking-trumpet, but being stopped 
in his philanthropic endeavor by 
Edison's subaltern, in despair blurted 
out: 

" I was going to say, things even 
up : Last time you had a good 
' heat ' on, now you say you've got a cold." 

The accommodating ear of the great journalist caught the words, but 
consummate egotism distilled their meaning into a compliment and he 
went aboard smiling blandly. 




1 4 "THESE summer girls prepare as for a military campaign." 
* " Yes ; they look forward to a series of brisk engageme: 



engagements. 

I AM informed by a veterinary surgeon of first-class ability that there is a 
firm belief in professional circles that the famous $30,000 horse, Maxim, 
was literally slaughtered at Rancho del Paso. The stallion was hurt some 
time ago by a fall not in his stall, as stated in the newspapers, but while 
being exercised by a boy. About a month after it was deemed advisable 
to take him out of the stud. Veterinary surgeons were consulted and, 
from what I hear, the horse was treated in a most extraordinary manner to 
say the least. Setons were inserted all along his back and the gaping 
wounds injected with a solution of fifty per cent carbolic acid. The solu- 
tion raised great blisters and the summer heat being intense, the horse suf- 
fered untold agonies and grew rapidly worse. 



DANGS — They say that new racehorse of Sportem's is a cracking good 
*-* one. 

Bings [ruefully) — Cracking ? He broke me. 

IW\ AXIM was considered one of the most valuable horses ever imported to 
this country. His colts sold for enormously high prices. One would 
have thought such an animal should have been treated with more care 
than might have been given to an ordinary truck-horse suffering with the 
colic. I am reliably informed, however, that one of the " doctors " who 
treated the horse, after performing his part of the business, rushed off to 
San Francisco and did the rest of the "attending" over the telephone. 
When the horse died, instead of being dissected as the interests of the case 
demanded, he was dumped into a hole and buried, and science or his 
owner will never know what was the matter. Superintendent Mackay was 
in the East when Maxim met so untimely an end. He will not be doing 
his duty to himself or his employer if the Rancho del Paso does not have a 
strict investigation of the case when he returns and the public learn who 
treated the horse and exactly how and for what he was treated in the 
manner reported.

never interfere with these fakirs and the duty of exterminating the pests 
must devolve on the horse-owners themselves. I understand there is a 
movement of that kind afoot. Several well-known gentlemen, who take a 
deep interest in horses, have signified their desire to aid the movement, 
and all that is needed is organization and action. An influential associa- 
tion with the right men on the Executive Committee can easily formulate 
and have the proper laws passed, and after a few quacks have been brought 
up with a round turn, there will be a wonderful elevation in the veterinary 
profession. 



IT is high time that a reform began among the gentry who in California 
from time out of mind have been practicing as " horse doctors " with- 
out qualifications or diplomas. It is true that the local medical profession 
which doctors the human race has been afflicted in like manner, but in 
these days, when the principal use of an average man is to stop a soldier's 
bullet in the L T nited States, mankind is not worth considering from a 
financial standpoint. Racehorses, even of the skate variety, are worth 
money, and a horse of any kind is good for at least the price of a suit of 
clothes. The aggregate value of the horseflesh of California is therefore 
vast. On this valuable property the quack " vets " have been working 
their ignorance without obstruction for years. The State, of course, will

I MET Professor Holden in town the latter part of this week. 

"What brings you to town, Professor ? I thought you were busy 
making out an alphabet for Marsians to read up at the Lick Observatory." 

" No," said the venerable Professor, " I came down on an entirely 
different errand from anything relating to astronomy. Gastronomy would 
fit the case better." 

"How's that?" 

" Well, some years ago Dr. McNutt and myself had an argument as 
to whether the eating of such a pungent vegetable as garlic would flavor 
the meat of an animal. I thought it would ; the doctor thought not. Now, 
this argument has never been satisfactorily settled one way or the other, but 
when I saw a notice in one of the San Francisco papers about the enforced 
cannibalism of the shipwrecked sailors of the James Allen, I at once saw 
a mode of solving the question." 

" I am still in the dark, Professor." 

" Well, you see the last man they ate was a Portuguese. They are 
all great garlic eaters from early youth, and I am now on my way to the 
city front to find these sailors and discover if the Portuguese stew did not 
have a perceptibly garlicky flavor." 



DANKS — Young Mclvor is sowing wild oats at a fearful rate. 

Rivers — And yet that boy, to my certain knowledge, was raised on 
good oatmeal. 



JUDGE CAMPBELL, however little he may know about law, is certainly 
a daisy with a pistol, and is just the kind of a Judge the city requires 
around the City Hall court-rooms. If the weapon won't go off the first 
time he pulls the trigger, he keeps on until he gets it off somehow. The 
only thing to be regretted is that the weapon did not wing a few lawyers 
and politicians who could well be spared, for a time at least. Prosecuting 
Attorney Reed came nearest to being hit, but, deserving as he is of such 
distinction, he remained uninjured. Next time the Judge does his juggling 
act with a pistol The Wasp will have one loaded for him especially, and 
guaranteed to hit anything from a ward politician to a shyster lawyer within 
a radius of fifty feet. 

" It's harmless," said Judge Campbell ; 

" It's as innocent as I." 
He pulled the trigger twice, but oh, 
The third time it let fly.. 

Said Reed (at least he might have said 

Had he been cool enough), 
" Your rulings, Judge, are like your lead, 

A trifle hot and tough." 



ttl SEE," remarked the editor, "that a man named Fitezhkioffgj has 
* confessed that he conspired against the Czar's life." 
"The intention probably was to place the man's name somewhere 
where Alexander would be likely to fall over it," replied the sub-editor. 



IT was on the Sausalito boat coming to the city and Mrs. Slinkey was 
reading the personals in one of the dailies. She read the following 
aloud : 

" Mrs. Willie Morritz, nee Black, has returned to San Francisco, after a short visit to Monte- 
rey." 

" I don't quite understand that," said her husband. 
" What don't you understand ? " 

"About Mrs. Morritz. What does nay Black mean ? " 
" Oh ! That's French and means that she was born Black." 
" Born black," exclaimed Slinkey excitedly. 
" Yes, nee is the French for born." 

" Well, that ain't so. I knowed ber parents and they was as white 
as anybody born in Australia. I'll see the editor about that."

'THE old proverb about " Give a dog a bad name," etc., applies with great

that none of them are believed. Charley Green, the noted fisherman, who

and exaggerate their catches, for the simple reason that he knows a good 
spot when he finds it and doesn't propose to let " Bill, Tom and Harry " 
get in ahead of him, got a bad set-back last Monday. Charley had been 
out alone on a little creek whose exact location in Marin county is known 
to but few. He had caught forty of the finest brook-trout a man ever saw 
taken in that county and was so proud of his catch that he at once hied 
him to a photographer's and immortalized the day's sport. He had a 
dozen copies of the photographs printed off, and marched away with the 
proud conviction that he had taught posterity, through these pictures, a 
lesson in angling. "Forty brook-trout, weighing 17 pounds 3 ounces. 
Caught by C. Green, July 10th," he wrote on each. The first man he 
met after he had paid for and taken possession of the photographs was 
Benn, the tlymaker and fisherman. 

" Look at that Benn ! " said Green as they entered Johnny Butler's 
fishermen's headquarters. " Here's the basket I made on the 10th. Take 
one." 

"Can't you spare me two?" said Benn. " I want one to send to a 
friend." 

"Can't do it," replied Green, who is not celebrated for his lavish ex- 
penditure. "They cost me six dollars." 

" Which ? " queried Benn as he winked to Butler ; " the fish or the 
photos?" The Rounder. 

THE INTERRUPTED HONEYMOON. 



Sfquel to the European Tour of Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Fair. 



COCIETY of the two worlds — the half and the fashionable — are just now 
^ interested very deeply in a suit of ejectment whereby Miss Laura 
Young, well if not favorably known to the gay bloods of San Francisco, is 
sought to be divorced from the establishment on Stockton street over 
which she has presided since Mrs. Charley Fair, nee Maud Nelson, moved 
upward in the social scale. 

Several eminent local barristers have been retained in the case /to and 
con, and no doubt it will supplement the interest of the great strike after 
that sensational event has become a chestnut. 

Incidentally the case will be of value to the financial world as solving 
the mystery of why the outflow of gold to Europe during the past year has 
continued in the face of every legislative plan to stop it and apparently in 
violation of all the laws of political-economy. 

Miss Laura Young, the present proprietor of No. Stockton street, 

was what is known to the "Tenderloin District" as the "star-boarder" 
when Mrs. Fair, nee Nelson, filled, in the most ample manner, the position 
of landlady. The establishment was what is technically known as a 
"wine-house." The sparkling vintage of La Belle France flowed every 
night like beer in an ordinary rendezvous. A handsome clubman with a 
Gallic name supplied the vintage (at regular trade rates) and many gentle- 
men whose visiting cards send a thrill of delight from Van Ness avenue to 
Presidio Heights were constant patrons. But of this we shall not speak, 
for is it not the way of the world and always a gentleman's undisputed 
prerogative ? 

When Mrs. Fair, nee Nelson, joined the Four Hundred, the establish- 
ment at No Stockton street was sold to the star-boarder as a mark of 

distinguished consideration for $8,000, of which sum $1 500 was cash to 
defray the incidentals of the bridal tour and the remainder promissory 
notes of the denomination of $500 each. 

The star-boarder congratulated herself on having struck a good invest- 
ment, for the transaction carried with it the use pro tern of the barouche 
and the pair of bay horses with paint-brush tails and a colored coachman, 
which created such a sensation on Saturday and Sunday afternoons in the 
Park, not to speak of the convulsions of jealousy along the length and 
breadth of Ellis street and the waves of professional despair that swept 
Dupont street when the stunning equipage, the badge of arrogant pros- 
perity, rolled by. 

It was understood verbally that the star-boarder should have " her 
own time" to pay the notes, but, as a matter of "mere formality," she 
was signed up legally with binding obligations in writing to pay the indebt- 
edness of $6,500 in monthly installments of $500. A friend was appointed 
agent for the collection and transmission of the boodle, and with the $1,500 
cash in hand, the happy bride and groom set out for the capitals of Europe. 

For some months the checks from the new proprietor of No. 

Stockton street were furnished regularly. The stream of gold kept flowing 
steadily over the Atlantic, swelling the "export statistics " and causing 
deeper corrugations on the brows of the distressed and troubled guardians 
of the great American national gold reserve. Then the stream became a 
mere intermittent trickle. The honeymoon excursionists wired back an 
anxious inquiry as to the cessation of remittances. The cablegram in re- 
sponse was brief but eloquent : 

Charles L. Fair, Hotel San Petersburg, Rue Cumartin, Paris: Hard times in Frisco. 
Wine don't go any more. People lucky to have coffee and sinkers. Cannot collect. Ross. 

Soon after the transmission of this dispatch, the honeymoon excursion- 
its packed their grips and the local Four Hundred learned, through the 
newspapers, that Mr. Fair and his blushing bride were en route to San 
Francisco. There was some curiosity as to the abrupt change in their 
plans which originally contemplated a tour of the world on the monthly 
installments from No. Stockton street. The explanation of their un- 
timely return to the scene of their many social triumphs has been furnished 
in the suit of ejectment against the ex-star-boarder and the presence of a 
myrmidon of the Sheriff's office, yclept a " receiver," who represents the 
dignity of the law in controversies of meum and teum by laying his flippers 

oh all the profits of bacchanalian sin that accrue nightly at No. 

Stockton street. 




THE BRIDAL PAIR ON TOUR. 

I understand that the legal complaint on which the action has been 
commenced is unique in its phraseology and charges that the establishment 

at No. Stockton street has been conducted as a bawdy place in which 

all the canons of nineteenth century morality are hourly violated. The 
defendant in the lawsuit does not deny this soft impeachment, but declares 
in her answer that though she endeavored to keep up the tone of the estab- 
lishment to the champagne status, and in every way tried to run it as in 
the prosperous regime of its portly ex-mistre=s, it steadily degraded to the 
steam-beer level on account of the protracted financial and industrial de- 
pression and the demoralizing effect of these conditions on things in gen- 
eral. Hence, her inability to contribute to the expenses of the honey- 
moon. The subject I should think ought to be an inviting one for the 
interviewers and special artists of the daily papers. We might have an 
opinion from Mr. Greenway or Mr. Chambliss on the possible effects of the 
lawsuit on Mrs. Fair's, nee Nelson's, standing in the Four Hundred. The 
massage fraternity, who form such an important part of the advertising 
patronage of the morning journals, would no doubt appreciate a series of 
interior photographic views of an establishment which was rated at an 
emergency sale as worth $8,000. To several of our most popular clubmen 
they would also be acceptable as souvenirs, and altogether the subject is 
too prolific to be overlooked. I commend it to the attention of my talented 
and industrious brethren of the dailies. The Dude. 



THE PULLMAN CAR. 
TpHAT a Pullman car is wholly indispensible to life, 
' Is a lesson inculcated by the present mortal strife. 
We had hitherto allowed ourselves most foolishly to think 
We could live on bread and butter with a modicum of drink ; 
But now our eyes are opened to their uttermost extent, 
And this popular delusion is no longer permanent. 
We find we are but mortals when we fancy we can " star " 
And waltz about this hemisphere without a Pullman car. 
Why, even all our mails lay neglected on the tracks, 
And engines, tho' they're standing still, are also on their backs ; 
While hosts of would-be passengers are groaning in despair 
At having destinations with no means of getting there. 
Supplies are running short, and with starvation point in sight 
The population finds itself in sad and sorry plight. 
'Twere better to be subjects of the autocratic Czar 
Than slaves of such a Juggernaut as is the Pullman car. 
The hapless grower sees his fruit hang rotting on the trees, 
And stillness reigns where men should be at work like busy bees. 
All trades annihilated, there is trouble brewing fast ; 
The Ship of State is drifting with a dislocated mast. 
Yet still we hear those magnates in their haughtiness and pride 
Declare we shall have " Pullman " or that not a soul will ride. 
They intimate that Heaven's door is only kept ajar 
For passengers arriving there in Mr. Pullman's car.

His hair is mussed, and his trousers have slits in 
his knees and a big slit where Harrigan sews

calls them " murderers," they take poison and die, 
rapidly and artistically. 



their wedding night. A young ingenuous Miss con- 
ducts the bride to the bridal chamber, asks a few 
pertinent questions and proceeds to disrobe her ; 
and it was right here that the audience was as in- 
teresting as the performance. During the cross- 
examination conducted by this young person, the 
women appeared glued to their chairs, the sterner 
sex stared and chuckled, and all closely watched 
one gown slip down and the other slip over, and 
then there was a sigh. The whole thing was very 
modest. 



C OME really good work is done in this uncanny, 
^ creepy play. Miss Monk makes the para- 
lytic mother a strong and interesting personation ; 
and Mason Mitchell plays Camille with taste, tact 
and, in spite of the repulsiveness of the character, 
with refinement. Mrs. Potter and Mr. Bellew 
roll their eyes and tear their hair. This seems to 
be all that is required of them, and that's all they 
give for the money. The First-nighter. 

NOTES. 

"THE Orpheum, despite the railroad strike which 
has prevented the arrival of several talented 
variety performers, has fully kept up its reputation 
as a first-class variety entertainment during the 
past week. The Wilmots in their wonderful bi- 
cycle performance never tire the audiences, while 
Aldo, Martini, O'Brien and Redding, Cunningham 
and Grant with others of equal merit make up a 
programme good enough to please the most exact- 
ing.

an actor he is unique in his line. His engagement 
at the California has been a successful one.

clinched our teeth, held our breath and then went

haired ghosts. 



COR this is the way of the French story : The- 
rese is young, pretty and has lovely hair. 
That is why she sits, as the curtain rises, fully ten 
minutes with her back to the audience — it gives 
them time to contemplate her hair. Considerate, 
is it not ? But to return to our muttons : She is 
married to a man she does not love, which is most 
natural as is everything else in this play. In the 
first place he is ugly and has red hair. He is 
sickly and cross. And then there is the painter ! 
He is not sick, he is not cross, and, above all, he 
arranges his hair just too lovely. It is most inter- 
estingly gray and — the middle-front — is combed 
artistically and falls in soft loose curls on his 
manly, alabaster brow. 




r^AMILLE is the husband's name. He has a

they go boating and drown the sickly husband. 
Then they come home and wear black.

week. The mounting of this play has been the 
talk of patrons of this theatre. No handsomer 
stage-picture has ever been seen on our local 
stage than that of the ruins of Abbey Moon. 
Morosco is rapidly winning for himself a reputa- 
tion for splendid stage mountings.

"THE Tivoli managment has hustled itself to put 
' " Dick Turpin " on in good shape and has 
succeeded. This new three-act opera, although 
well staged, sang and acted, is somewhat of a dis- 
appoinment so far as the music is concerned. 
The libretto is also only passable. Dunbar as 
Dick Turpin and Miro de la Motta as Sir Oliver 
Cross sang and played their parts well, as did 
also Branson and Hartman. Tillie Salinger as 
Eleanor Mortimer, the Beauty of Bath, Carrie 
Godfrey as the Gypsy Queen Handassah and 
Alice Neilson as Dorothy Brooks were all good. 
The old story of Dick Turpin is wound around 
new situations in which stage coaches, a wicked 
baronet, a reckless army officer and a virtuous 
but persecuted young lady play prominent parts. 
The villain marries the gypsy queen in mistake for 
the persecuted heiress, who Dick Turpin quietly 
appropriates, taking the villain's real estate, castle, 
etc., to which he opportunely turns out to be heir. 
The piece will probably have but a short run as 
there is no particular merit about it. It will, how- 
ever, run through next week and may improve on 
acquaintance. 

AT Mororco's Grand Opera House Dan McCar- 
** thy has filled the house with his Irish dramas

THE WASP. 




By A Sharp. 



THE orchestras of all our theatres need a re- 
form. Looking around, you will find that, 
with few exceptions, the worst element is infallibly 
employed. Of course, the orchestra of a theatre is 
not regarded as an exponent of high art (when it 
is not in the case of opera), because its cntre-acte 
performance cannot be considered such, but 
neither should it be made the factor to prostitute 
the taste of the public by executing, in a go-as- 
you-please way, a wretched programme of vulgar 
trash. 



(")UR bands, instead, deserve words of praise. 
The Park Band, so ably directed by Mr. A. 
Spadina, always does good work, and now that 
the Fair is over we will listen again with pleasure 
to its weekly performances. Everybody knows 
that the band is the most important factor to cul- 
tivate and improve the public taste. I do not see 
why a large city like San Francisco, with so many 
idle musicians, should not have its evening open- 
air concerts like many of the other civilized and 
important cities of the globe. While the Park 
Band delights the crowd on certain afternoons of 
the week, the Casassa Band should be appointed 
to play, for instance, on Saturday evenings at the 
Union Square. I am quite sure that it would be- 
come immediately a favorite resort of our people. 
At least, together with the good work done by 
the Park Band, we would have in this way some- 
thing to counterbalance the evil that the cheap 
and trashy musical entertainments exercise so im- 
pudently upon our public. 



THE Casassa Band had a great chance to prac- 
tice during the Midwinter Fair, and at the 
last concerts an extraordinary improvement was 
decidedly noticeable. In fact this band is praise- 
worthy for its precision of attack, body of sound, 
ensemble and even for a certain tendency to reach 
more aesthetic qualities. 

If our City Fathers could be made to understand 
that, beyond material achievement, there is some- 
thing better in higher spheres that can give lustre 
and renown to a city, they would easily vote a 
fund in order to have a band play at the Union 
Square, as I said, every Saturday evening from 
eight to half-past nine. 



THE Mexican Band was heard last week at the 
Metropolitan in a grand concert given for the 
benefit of the Spanish Church, " Nuestra Senora 
De Guadalupe," and was applauded to the echo 
by a large audience chiefly composed of our best 
Spanish-speaking population. A very pleasing 
programme was carefully executed. The over- 
ture to Willian Tell, by Rossini, was the number 
in which the band excelled the most. A pretty 
waltz, " Entre Flores," was also well received, its 
composer, Senor Hermandez, having many ad- 
mirers in the audience. In the middle of the 
concert Dr. Rivas stepped to the front of the stage 
and, with a few becoming words, presented a gold 
medal to the director of the band, Captain E. 
Payen, as a token of admiration from the Mexi- 
can Colony, and everything went on con ?nucha 
satisfaction de todo el mundo, although, as it was a 
benefit for the Spanish Church, many in the aud- 
ience felt a lack caused by the absence from the 
programme of the name of Professor Arillaga and 
that of Mr. Fernando Loaiza. I was informed 
however, that they are both enjoying the warm and 



perfumed air of Yosemite where they will remain 
until the end of this month. 



N 



OW it is from Berlin that we hear about our 
noble sycophant. The Berlin correspondent 
of the New York Courier tells his readers (I won- 
der if his readers will care a straw or not) that the 
" solo violinist, knight to his late Majesty King 
Kalakaua (!), the front-rank artist of the Pacific 
Coast," is in the German capital and that he man- 
aged to be received by Joachim. A friend of 
mine, however, writes me from there assuring me 
that Joachim could not very well escape the in- 
fliction of such a visit and that it lasted only ten 
minutes, so coldly did he receive the bothersome 
intriguer ; but the cheek of Heyman is accus- 
tomed to the snubbing of artists. The question 
for him is to come back to the jay town and boast 
that he was received by Joachim to astonish the 
imbeciles. 



\/ERY probably we will soon have the pleasure 
to enumerate among our musicians two 
sisters of Mr. Louis Heine, the 'celloist who 
honors so much our musical circles, and if by 
the natural family connection a deduction may be 
made as for their musical ability, then we must ex- 
pect to find the Misses Heine absolutely first-class 
artists. Anyway, they have made their studies in 
Berlin, although lately they have spent a good deal 
of time in New York. The eldest is a violinist, 
pupil of Joachim, and the youngest a pianist, pu- 
p il of Moszkowski. Supposing that the two young 
ladies will remain among us, then we will surely 
hear some excellent ensemble music in the shape 
of a model trio. 



/"" REENWAY swore like a vulgar beggar when 
he read my assertions made in these col- 
umns last week, that he tries to get money from 
the musicians engaged through him in some so- 
cial gatherings. Of course having a perfect knowl- 
edge of true good society's demeanor, and as critic 
my aim being to elevate music and musicians, I 
could not abstain myself from exposing also this 
fraud. Greenway need not try to deny the fact 
which I am positively ready to prove. It is only 
to be hoped that San Francisco's " good society " 
will in future open its eyes before accepting such 
impostors in its midst, if it were at least to allow 
musicians to make their honest gain.

MARKHAM'S RIDE. 



The Illustrious Hero of Winchester Dis- 
tanced. 



P)OWN in the south, well out of the way, 

Markham is snoozing at bright midday ; 
The affrighted air for a week before 
Had echoed abroad with the strikers' roar. 
But the Governor never left his door, 
Though he knew the battle was raging sore ; 
And Markham four hundred miles away. 

" Haste to the front ! " the committee wired ; 
" The troops on the strikers have not yet fired. 
If you don't hurry up you will miss the fray." 
But Markham wired back : "Excuse me, pray. 
No trains are running, no cars in sight ; 
I'd sooner be here than in the fight." 

And Markham stayed four hundred miles away. 

Soon came the news that old Ruger's men, 
Numbering over three hundred and ten, 
At Sacramento were camping then, 
Having gone up the preceding day. 
Then Markham observed: "I must really start, 
For I cannot well take an active part 
Here, four hundred miles away." 

So he steamed to Santa Barbara fair ; 
But it took him a long time getting there. 
Then up the coast at the regular pace 
He came the frightful riot to face. 
Sailing along he passed Monterey, 
In the morning so cool and gray, 
And was only two hundred miles away. 

As he reached the city by and bye, 
He found the excitement running high. 
All asked him : " Governor, is it true 
That you were scared by the A. R. U. ? 
And, anyway, what are you going to do, 
Now you've steamed into port so late in the day, 
And are still a good hundred miles away ? " 

Hurrah ! for the Governor ; cheer the man 
Who took so long to hit on a plan 
To reach the scene where the battle raged, 
And fretted and fumed like a tiger caged, 
With a grief that could not be assuaged, 
Though vessels were leaving every day, 
And Markham four hundred miles away. 

And when his statue is raised on high, 
Under the dome of the Capital sky, 
Be it writ in letters both bold and bright, 
That Markham hurried to join the fight, 
But found himself in a place so tight, 
That while it was raging he chose to stay, 
In safety, four hundred miles away.

Saturday. 
Dearly Beloved Brother: I have just re- 
ceived an intimation that an exceedingly wealthy 
lady, who is not young and frivolous, but has a 
heart leaning toward the poetry and music of our 

ritual at St. , will join us in our Service of 

Song at eleven o'clock to-morrow. In the event 
of her being moved by my discourse on "The 
Ethics of Music and Moonlight in Browning's 
Poems," or by Signor O'Mara's upper C in the 
three-quarter solo which he will sing during the 
collection, she will probably contribute largely to 
the fund for providing a band of harps to the choir. 
Knowing, my dear Brother Hopkins, as we do, the 
susceptibilities of the sex, 1 feel that no pains 
should be spared to make a good show. See, 
therefore, that the hair of the choir boys is extra- 
well brushed (young Tom Saunders always has a 
feather sticking up at the back of his head, and 
O'Mara is never properly shaved !), and that my 
best surplice, that with the Brussels point flounce 
and sleeves, is carefully ironed at the pleats and 



well aired. Put fresh candles everywhere, and see 
that a high and extra soft hassock is provided in 
my own sitting, which I have placed, by letter, at 
her disposal. 

Yours in brotherly love. 

CuTHBERT Tremlett. 

From John Hopkins, lay bi other, St. , South 

Kensington, to Madam Leblanc, French laun- 
dress, Church street, Soho, 

Madam : I am sending herewith the best sur- 
plice of the Very Rev. Archdeacon Tremlett, of 

St. . I beg you will get it up with great care, 

particularly starching and ironing the pleats with 
great nicety, and in the event of its smelling at all 
of soap be so good as to sprinkle it with lavender, 
as the Archdeacon is very sensitive. Please return 
it to the vestry before eight o'clock. 
Yours faithfully, 

John Hopkins. 

P. S. — Kindly do not omit the pink tissue under

Sunday. 

My Dear Bobbie: It is really too bad that 
again I should be done out of a little "glass of 
lunch " with you. But the same reason that spoilt 
my fun yesterday has got me on toast to-day. 
Perhaps, though, I had better tell you the whole 
business at once or you'll be thinking my ex- 
cuses are all Tommy rot, and that I am really out 
on the spree with another Johnnie. 

Well, I got to the theatre awfully late last even- 
ing, twenty minutes to make-up, dress and be on 
the stage. Being in such a ghastly hurry, of course, 
I found old Polly Groves more than usually stu- 
pid and slow. She hadn't got one of my rags 
ready, and hadn't even unpacked my clean things 
from Leblanc's. I don't mind telling you I let her 
have it hot and strong, although there wasn't 
much time to waste in words, and I was hard at 
work putting on the paint all the time. 

Never did I jump into my stockings so quick; 
but when Polly came to hand me my next gar- 
ment I nearly had a fit. Leblanc had sent me 
instead of my lovely laces and flounces the rum- 
miest-looking thing you ever saw. It was like a 
nightgown, only more so. What to do with the 
thing I simply didn't know — and Polly couldn't help 
me to an idea. Then the boy called " Beginners," 
and I'd only ten minutes. Not a girl in the place 
had a second set of things — they're an improvi- 
dent lot, the girls at the Bon-bon — except that 
Maud Santley and I wouldn't ask her for so much 
as a pin. There was only one thing to be done, 
and I did it. I caught up the scissors, slashed the 
sleeves — such baggy things as they were, too — 
out of the garment, and simply put them on. The 
rest of it had to do for a petticoat, but I felt awfully 
skimpy and mean about the skirts, though old 
Polly did say I'd a hundred pounds' worth of lace 
round my ankles. 

The result of it all is that now I've got to go 
tearing off to Brixton, where I've found out that 
old Leblanc always spends Sunday with her mar- 
ried daughter. I am going to give her an awful 
slanging for making such a giddy goat mistake. 
Yours disgustedly, 

Kitty. 

From the Very Rev. Archdeacon Tremlett to John 
Hopkins, lay b> other, of St. , South Ken- 
sington. 

Sunday Afternoon. 

Dear Brother : I cannot express to you how 
sorry I am to hear of your sudden indisposition 
which kept you away from Church this morning, 
and I hope you will be better e'er this reaches you. 
As for myself, I am a mere wreck. Never have I 
passed through such an ordeal. To my horror I 
discovered, when I went to assume my canonicals 
in the vestry, that the washerwoman had sent me 
two garments instead of one, and that neither of 
them belonged to me. 

A happy inspiration on the part of Brother 
Thomson (who is a married man) solved the dif- 
ficulty which might otherwise have prevented me 
from making my appearance and fulfilling my 
duties. The thing was slipped over my head, tied 
around my neck, and two large holes cut at either 



side for my arms. About the other I will say no 
more than that in the predicament I tore it in two, 
using the portions as sleeves, which, with the aid 
of Brother Thomson, who behaved nobly, were 
pinned upon my arms. 

The sacrifice of my position, and the exigencies 
of the occasion, I hope you will understand and 
never refer to. To my dying day I shall remem- 
ber for my sins the humiliation I suffered when 
delivering my most eloquent discourse in gar- 
ments which, however useful they may be to their 
owner, were to me a veritable shirt of Nessus. 
There was only one consolation, the lace was ex- 
ceedingly fine and full. 

Yours in brotherly love, 

Cuthbk.rt Tremlett. 



NEW BOOKS. 



A new poet has arisen in our midst in the person 
of Rufus C. Hopkins, whose book of verse entitled 
" Roses and Thistles " has just been published here 
by W. Doxey, of 631 Market street, San Francisco. 
This volume contains some 480 pages and con- 
tains poems on every conceivable subject. Of 
these " Malinche " an Aztec romance and " The 
Shadowy Land " are the most ambitious. The versi- 
fication is good all through the poems and fine senti- 
ments find suitable settings in well chosen words. 
This book of poems should become popular as 
there are verses therein to suit all temperaments 
and moods.

\A/E held a special meeting of the 
Dorcas Society on Wednesday 
in order to discuss a very much talked 
of subject, "Is Marraige a Failure?" 
Nearly all the members were present 
and Mrs. Amelia Figg was in the chair. 
That lady opened the meeting by an 
address. She said : 

"I, for one, consider marriage a 
failure. I was married when only sixteen, in — but I need not name the 
year. [Here Miss Caustic, who is always saying what she thinks are smart 
things, nudged me and said in a stage whisper, 'When Figgs are in, dates 
are out.'] We lived happily together until the birth of our first child, a 
boy. He was a rather troublesome child, and Mr. Figg used to get up 
many times in the night and walk him about the room to keep him quiet. 
One night he had been to the ' lodge ' and came home late. The child 
began to cry, and, would you believe it, ladies, when I asked him to get up 
and quiet it, he refused point blank. This was the beginning of the end. 
We quarreled then and the next night hs never came home at all. A week 
after I caught him kissing the housemaid and at once instituted a suit for a 
divorce. He did not defend it, and, I am happy to say, I have been a free 
woman for — well — quite a number of years." 

Now, Mrs. Figg is fifty if she is a year, so that Miss Causti : remarked, 
" She had been giving us an object lesson in ancient history." 



MRS. CAUDLE, a stout lady, then arose and said : 

" Ladies, I do not think that Mrs. Figg's experience has got much 
bearing on the question now under consideration. In the first place she 
was too young when she married to properly understand the duties and 
obligations of a wife, and in the second place her experience of married life 
was so brief that she can hardly be quoted on the subject. In the third 
place the painful circumstances she relates happened so long ago that 
probably the lady's memory may have failed her in some important points. 
[Cries of ' Oh ! oh ! '] I have found marriage a success myself and for 
twenty years have been a happy wife and mother. My husband, it is true, 
is slightly afflicted, being deaf and dumb, but that has never interfered with 
our perfect harmony." 

" What a blessing for him," remarked Miss Caustic sotto voce. 



w 



AHEN Mrs. Caudle had sat down amid a murmur of mild applause, 
cries of " Miss Twiggs ! Miss Twiggs ! " arose and I had to say 
something. 

" I never was married," I commenced, " and, therefore, cannot speak 
from actual experience, but I read the newspapers and from the numbers 
of divorces I see recorded, have formed the idea that marriage is, in most 
cases, anything but a success. [Cries of ' Hear ! hear ! '] Why are there 
so many divorces ? Because there are so many marriages ! In the major- 
ity of cases, I believe, the women are to blame. [Cries of ' No ! no ! '] 
They marry old men for their money and practice all kinds of deception 
on them. I know a woman — I will not call her a lady — who is a good 
example. I met her at a party a short time ago. Her husband was not 
there, and she was carrying on in a most scandalous manner with a young 
insurance clerk. She must have noticed my looks of disapproval, for 
when I was leaving she came up to me and said : 

" ' Miss Twiggs, I hope you will not mention my being here to John.' 

" John is her husband's name. I said : 

" ' Mrs. , if you think I am going to be a party to your carryings- 
on you are much mistaken. If I am questioned as to to-night, I shall 
simply tell the truth.' 

" And the brazen thing actually laughed in my face and said : 

" ' I ought to have known as much. All you old maids are cranks.' 

"Another young married woman I know, whose husband just dotes 
on her and idolizes her, told me in confidence that she had never loved 
her husband, but had married him just for convenience. He is a young 
and handsome man, too, while she is vulgar and by no means pretty. I 
believe that marriage is, as has been often remarked, 'a lottery,' and as 
my experience in Louisiana and Mexican tell me, blanks are in the pre- 
ponderance. I have hitherto refrained from taking a chance." 

CEVERAL other ladies spoke, but the most noteworthy address was 

made by Mrs. Soulsnuffer, who brazenly averred that instead of a 

man having several wives like the Mormons, a woman should have, like 



the Papuans, an unlimited supply of husbands. I am happy to state to 
the credit of the Dorcas Society that she was promptly call to order and 
greeted with prolonged hissing. 

She was hopping mad though and would not sit down. 

" I've had five husbands," said she, " and three of them were strong 
Olympic Clubmen and none of them ever could make me sit down when I 
didn't want to. 'Tain't likely a lot of ole hens like you can squelch me." 

We did squelch her though, but it took heroic treatment. We all got 
up in a body and left her talking to herself. The last words we heard 
were: 

" It's all right. Git out if you all want. I'll tell you the truth whether 
you like it or not, and the truth is that it isn't one husband you married 
women in San Francisco want, but a dozen, if you could get them, to sup- 
port you in idleness." 

I was half minded to agree with her, but she added as she saw me 
pause and listen for a moment in the doorway : 

"An' you'd be as bad as the rest, Tabby Twiggs, if you could only 
ketch some poor fool of a man an' have him work like a slave for you." 

The wretch to talk like that to me ! The next time they discuss mar- 
riage in any shape at the Dorcas Society, I'll go to a gentleman-cow fight 
at San Jose in preference. Taeitha Twiggs.

SUMMER GIRLS AND SUMMER BEAUX, 
"THE San Francisco beau has left 
For sylvan shade and brook, 
To cast his line about and catch 
A fortune on his hook. 

The San Francisco belle has gone 

Away from town to win 
A lover metropolitan — 

Also to tan her skin. 

'Tis said the girls at Santa Cruz 

Parade the beach on nights, 
When moonbeams glimmer on the sea — 

And also on their tights. 

When men approach — so it is told — 

All, save a very few, 
Scamper away, for " distance lends 

Enchantment to the view." 

Not so with girls at Monterey 

Who've got the latest fad ; 
They wear their tights at closer range, 

For they know how to pad. 

I know a youth who will not lie ; 

He told me of a night 
When he was strolling on the sands 

And saw a wondrous sight. 

A group of damsels — five there were — 

All queenly, fair and tall. 
They seemed attired in tights — but lo ! 

It was not that at all. 

'Tis different with the girls who go 

To Marin county's vales. 
They're modest and demure and like 

To hear old fairy tales — 

Such fairy tales as, " I iove you," 
Told by some perfumed dude 

Who never entertain so well 
As when in solitude. 

For skyward — also eastward — up 

To lonely Lake Tahoe — 
There's where prevaricating men 

And female liars go. 

I never yet have known a case 

Of love and happy match 
From there, because they fish, and fish — 

Then lie about the catch. 

The Society Reporter. 



STICKBY — Who is your most distant relative, 
Bill? 
Bill Frayedout (who is known to have rela- 
tives abroad") — My cousin, John Welltodo, just 
across the street. 



HE CONQUERS DISEASE! 






7» 



The Boy Phenomenon with His Magnetic 
Power Wages War Against Suf- 
fering and Disease. 

Daily and Hourly He Accomplishes the Most 

Phenomenal and Startling Cures Lyer 

Attempted en the Pacific Coast. 



So Surprising and Extremely Extraordinary are Tney 

Tliat it is Almost Beyond Human Belief; Out 

No DonPt Exists as to Their Reality, 



Alcazar Theatre the Scene of Many Marvelous 
and Successful Cures Last Sunday Nig-ht. 



The Demonstration to he Repeated To-JMor- 
row (Sunday) Night, .luly 15th. 



■THE EXCITEMENT OVER THE TRULY 
marvelous, if not miraculous, cures accom- 
plished by The Boy Phenomenon the last three 
weeks has not abated in the least. If possible it is 
greater than ever, as with each successful cure 
upon the stage the- furor is renewed, which is in- 
tensified by the many cures of prominent and in- 
fluential citizens who are being treated in private. 

Alcazar Theatre was again packed and jammed 
to its utmost capacity last Sunday night to see and 
hear the World's Invincible Magnetic Healer 
demonstrate his wondrous power to heal the sick 
by Animal Magnetism. 

They were not disappointed, for it seemed as if 
half the audience arose for treatment when the 
youthful Healer requested the worst cases of a 
chronic nature to come upon the stage for treat- 
ment. Twenty-four cases were treated during the 
evening. Three were pronounced incurable, and 
several others were diagnosed as requiring more 
than one treatment to effect a cure. But in every 
case the patient announced they were wonderfully 
benefited, while more than half stated their pain 
had all left them. The blind could see, the deaf 
hear and the lame were able to walk without their 
crutches. It was truly a most wonderful exhibition 
of the unlimited powers of Animal Magnetism, 
and showed beyond question that The Boy Phe- 
nomenon was charged with a wonderful amount 
of it. 

Alcazar Theatre will, no doubt, be crowded to 
its utmost capacity again to-morrow (Sunday) 
night to witness another public exhibition of his 
powers to heal the sick. 

All those who desire private treatment, and are 
willing and can afford to pay for same, may call 
at his private office, 

930 MARKET STREET, 
any day, except Sunday, from io A. M. to 4 p. M., 
when consultations may be had and arrangements 
made for treatment.

" By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws which govern the 
operations of digestion and nutrition, and by a careful application 
of the fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps has pro- 
vided for our breakfast and supper a delicately flavoured beverage, 
which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judi- 
cious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradual- 
ly built up until strong enough to resist every tendency to disease. 
Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack 
wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many a fatal 
shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a 
properly nourished frame." — Cwil Service Gazette.

IT doesn't take much to draw together a crowd in San Francisco. A boy 
with a monkey is good for a hundred ; a fallen horse for a few more ; 
a plain, ordinary drunk will always command a large audience, but the 
boss crowd- collector is the man who gets up before a newspaper office with a 
brush, a pot of blacking and a roll of linen and writes in bold letters : 
"Latest From the Strike" — " Markham Speeding to the Capital" — 
" Barry Baldwin Passed a Restless Night" — "General Dimond has the 
Nose-bleed" — " Colonel Dickinson Sheds Tears Over Disgraced Militia- 
men " — " Colonel Batry Scared by a Firecracker," etc. These are what 
catch the street news-gleaner, and hold him entranced for hours, and block 
up the arteries of commerce.

There is more Catarrh in this section of the 
country than all other diseases put together, and 
until the last few years was supposed to be incur- 
able. For a great many years doctors pronounced 
it a local disease and_ prescribed local remedies, 
and by constantly failing to cure with local treat- 
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has 
proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and 
therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's 
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & 
Co., Toledo. Ohio, is the only constitutional cure 
on the market. It is taken internally in doses 
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly 
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. 
They offer one hundred dollars for any case it 
fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials.

HE great strike is worth all the money it 
has cost if it serves the purpose of strength- 
ening the national spirit which has for 
years been lamentably dormant in our 
country. Tin soldiers, cheap demagogues 
in civic office and a disgracefully unpa- 
triotic press which panders on the slightest 
provocation to anarchy have combined to 
make State government a shame to Ameri- 
cans and a disgrace to the nineteenth cen- 
tury. We need a strong dominant national 
spirit, whether it be upheld by bayonets 
or by force, and the great strike appears to 
arouse that spirit to the necessities of the 
times. The first of these is a regular 
army of respectable dimensions and not 
the miserable but energetic little skeleton 
the interests of Uncle Sam when the dogs 
We spend vast sums on our ridiculous 
National Guard which is as dangerous when over-zealous as when in- 
subordinate or cowardly. Whenever called on to meet a dangerous emer- 
gency it either fails in its manifest duty or flies to the other extreme and 
overdoes it. Officered as a National Guard frequently is by shallow-pated 
coxcombs who only desire to strut in martial habiliments, or else by pot- 
house politicians whose ruling thought is of attaining votes, the "civilian 
soldiery " is degraded in the public eye and made an object of contempt. 
Peaceful citizens distrust it and chafe at having to pay for its parades and 
excursions and all its mockery of actual service for the dollars expended 
on it. Rioters ignore it in their calculations and defy it in their lawless op- 
erations. Under proper regulations, our militia service may be made a 
peaceful arm of the National Government. It is to be hoped that the next 
great question after the Tariff bill has been disposed of will be the strength- 
ening of our National Army and the disbanding of the National Guard, 
lock, stock and barrel. That is the only correct plan of reorganizing it. 

* * * 
LJARRY GEORGE, who has for some time hidden his shining light in 
more or less "innocuous desuetude," has once more hopped to the 
front. This time he belches from his leathery lungs a violent diatribe 
against President Cleveland, railroad corporations and men in general who 
have more money, and perhaps more brains, than himself. His New York 
audience cheered George and hissed Cleveland. Of course, George had 
to trot out his pet hobby-horse, old spavined single-tax, as the country's 
only hope of salvation. Harry never loses a chance to bring his name 
before the public and is ever ready to feed the greedy maw of the great 
unwashed with the food it loves — abuse of those in power. It is fellows 
like George who keep our country in trouble and make good honest men 
lose their places and put their families in want and misery. 

* * * 
A DOLPH SUTRO has obtained a franchise for a street-car line to the 
Cliff House, and will commence to build the road at once. This 



will be pleasant news to those who live in the Richmond district and have 

had almost as much difficulty in getting into town as the Oaklanders, Ala- 

medans and Berkleyites are having during the strike. Mr. Sutro is an old 

man, but his spirit is still full of "get," and is characterized by the same 

determination which helped him to tunnel the Comstock. He promises to 

build a model road with all the latest appliances, and he will, no doubt, 

act up to his word.

/"'ORBETT, senior, who, of course, is the father of " Our Jim," is, I learn, 

like all old Californians who go back to Europe, much more favorably 

impressed by San Francisco after making the trip. It is easy to travel a 

long way and find many worse places than the city by the Golden Gate. 

The returned exiles all come back with the same old story about the scenes 

of their festive youth — " 'Tain't what it yuster be." 

When I go home in summer time, 

Down to the slow ol' town, 
Where father, mother, Nell an' 
John 



Still kiner hang eroun', 
I ask 'em how they're gittin' long, 

How farmin' is, an' he, 
Father, he shakes his head an' 
says : 

" 'Tain't what it yuster be." 

An' arter rovin' roun' the place, 

With John down through the lots ; 
An' out aroun' the cider mill, 

An' all them " dear " ol' spots ; 
I ask him how the fishin' is, 

Down in the creek, and he, 
He says, "Although it's purty 
good, 

'Tain't what it yuster be." 



On Sunday we go off to church 

To hear the Scripter read ; 
An' there I meet the village boys, 

Erlong with Deacon Stead ; 
" Seems good," says I, "to come to 
church, 

An' hear Salvation's free ; " 
He looks the young folks o'er, an' 
sighs : 

" 'Tain't what it yuster be." 

They ask how long I'm going to 
stay, 

An' what my jedgment is 
Erbout their comin' inter town 

To run a bizzerniz ; 
An' then I tell 'em word for word 

Jest what wuz tol' to me : 
" Thet tho' it's better'd 'tis to hum, 

'Tain't what it yuster to be." 



An' so it is in ev'ry place, 

I hear the same ol' plea : 
Thet nuthin' now is quite so good 

Ez what it yuster be. 
An' out uv all these diffrunt things, 

This thought comes hum to me : 
" Be we the same, who make each change, 

Ez what we yuster be ? " 




TOO EASY-GOING. 
-I'm afraid you hadn't better marry him. 



I fear he's too 



Fath er- 
easy-going. 

Daughter — Easy-going ? I'm sure if you could see what a struggle 
it is for him to say good-night you wouldn't think it easy for him to go. 



THE WASP. 



HONORS TO THE BRAVE. 



A Brief Tribute to the Heroic Defenders of the Left Bank of 
the Sacramento. 



P\URING the past week the cruel war between the mosquitoes and the 
city militia abated so much in ardor that a number of the gallant 
boys (mentally and regimentally) were able to leave tule-land and get back 
to civilization. Several familiar faces that but recently struck terror into 
the ranks of the rioters, and the boarding-houses, in Sacramento loomed 
up among the crowds on Market street and suggested the gratifying hope 
that soon again our citizen-soldiery will return en masse to their normal 
habits and usual habitations. First, of course, in the order of exercises ap- 
propriate to the welcoming back of the triumphant hosts will be the over- 
whelming ovation tendered the Third. The memory of their heroic ad- 
ventures is yet as fresh in the public mind, metaphorically speaking, as a 
codfish caught on Sunday at the Farallones and sold for the culinary ac- 
commodation of a family boarding-house on the following Friday. We 
have not yet forgotten how valiantly the Third (Colonel Barry, command- 
ing) responded to the deadly explosion of a firecracker on the left bank of 
the Sacramento and brought down at the first fire, by platoons, a shower of 
tomatoes, crab-apples, summer squash and a Japanese cook. The glories of 
the great sham battle of Tripe Hill fade into insignificance when contrasted 
with the exploits of the gallant Third (Colonel Barry, commanding) at the 
Sacramento depot, the levee and elsewhere. Before the regiment was two 
weeks in town, the most fractious small boy in the Capital could have been 
scared into washing his face before breakfast or saying his prayers by 
threatening on him the dire vengeance of the Third Regiment with even 
Lieutenant-Colonel O'Connor, commanding. The satisfying thought that 
with the chaining up of the ferocious dogs-of-war the veterans of the tules 
will march back to San Francisco with colors flying, drums beating, chins 
in the air, crowds cheering, red fire burning, bells ringing, street-cars stop- 
ping and Colonel Barry commanding, is enough to inspire the most slug- 
gish pen. Even the crowbar with which the editor of the Star flogs the 
insensate back of Capital every week should feel a thrill of the divine 
afflatus down its metallic spine at such a soul-stirring spectacle. The 
stock-poet of The Wasp has been so deeply moved by the mental con- 
templation of this subject that he has abandoned his ordinary pursuits and 
leading Pegasus from the rich field of soap and patent-medicine advertise- 
ments at fifty cents a line, cash in advance, has soared into the realms of 
poesy hitherto marked off as the exclusive preserves of Virgil Homer and 
the bards of Castoria. Appended is his ambitious effort.

POOR GIRL! 
I'M rated at millions and pose as a belle ; 

I am courted and quoted and said to be witty ; 
Yet every good thing I have said (must I tell ?) 

Was furnished to me by my pretty maid, Kitty. 

It is said I am beautiful, queenly and fair. 

And mistress of numberless womanly graces ; 

Yet I know that Maid Kitty has beauty most rare, 
While I have the plainest of plebeian faces. 

I have suitors by dozens, while Kitty has one ; 

Mine are dressed in the fashion, all perfumed and silly. 
Mine love me for dollars — which Kitty has none, 

But she's loved for herself by a cop with a billy.

She: 
Home again, home again 

From a foreign shore, 
But oh ! it fills my soul with pain, 

To see upon my door, 
The Sheriff's lock, all glaring red, 

Which decorates my home, 
And hear the cruel things they said, 

When I was on the foam. 



He: 
Home again, home again,

My outraged daddy swore.

Ere I crossed the bay 
And threw, like a consummate ass,

But trusting to my gentle Maud 

Again to pull me out. 

She: 
Home again, home again, 

Hear these women roar : 
Only beer now — no champagne — 

Golden days are o'er, 
Then give me back my homestead roof 

'Neath which I've had such fun, 
And raked the nimble dollars in 

From many a native son.

To put upon the door. The Organ-Grinder. 



ROUND AND ABOUT. 

■THE Oregon people were very much puzzled by the in and out running 
of the horses taken up there by the Bay District Track contingent. 
The race-track habitues down here were not at all mystified. Letters 
came from " up North " telling how the boys were working the game ; but 
the suckers were not always landed. They slipped through the net in a 
most laughable manner, I am told, when Last Chance was scheduled to 
win a race and Normandie to run second. It was a cinch that either 
horse could beat everything else in the field and the gang got in and loaded 
themselves with pool tickets till Nick Hall looked like a Sunday newspaper 
carrier and big Jim Garland's pockets bulged out like a missionary with a 
load of tracts for a South Sea camp-meeting. Well, it didn't " eventuate." 
Last Chance ran right enough and showed the whole field a clean set of 
heels. Normandie fell, as per programme, into second place and galloped 
along smoothly to win the ducats, but alas ! there is many a slip 'tween 
the post and the bookmakers' little tin cash-box. When everything but 
the shouting seemed over, Last Chance stumbled and fell, seriously injur- 
ing Jockey Weaver's shoulder, and Normandie being thrown out of his 



stride, a rank outsider rushed up and took first place and all the boodle. 
The Pans Mutuals paid forty-six dollars a ticket, so that it can be easily 
figured out how terrible a financial catastrophe overcame the jobbers. Big 
"Jim," who was sitting on the fence when the calamity occurred, fell off 
like a dead fly from the ceiling of a coffee-joint and had to be doused with 
a bucket of ice-water before he came to. The Portland "suckers" are 
grinning yet over the affair. 



J LEARN from a private letter that Mr. Curley Brown's style of starting 
horses caused the liveliest kind of trouble up North. I always thought 
it would. Mr. Brown was much bepraised by a lot of ninnies here who 
write race reports for the papers on the strength of what they don't know 
about races or racehorses. The fact that Mr. Brown lined the horses up 
like cavalry and stood in front of them flicking a whip in the faces of the 
high-mettled steeds caused the wildest outbursts of praise from the afore- 
said scribes. This ebullition of approval was incited by two causes : one 
was the hatred of Starter Ferguson entertained by the reporters ; the sec- 
ond was that any idiocy recommends itself to the average reporter in San 
Francisco, provided he thinks it is new. Mr. Brown's peculiar form of 
starling lunacy was not new, but the reporters did not know that. As a 
matter of fact it had been tried years before by jay starters and quickly 
dropped, as it must be, for it is radically and ridiculously wrong. 



W [ 



r HILE starting a field of horses at Portland, Mr. Curley Brown be- 
came impatient at the way owner Nick Hall's jockey was trying to 
beat the flag, and to curb the enthusiasm of the lad, he gave the horse a 
slash of his " black snake." In an instant Nick Hall, with his Southern 
blood at the boiling point, was over the fence, and the field of horses, I am 
informed, was quickly obscured from the view of the grand-stand by the 
cloud of dust raised by Nick and the starter. Accounts vary as to the 
precise actions of the belligerents, but the weight of testimony is that Nick 
drew his bowie-knife from his boot and Brown, to even matters, dropped 
him with a blow of his whip over the apex of his auburn pate. Blood in 
any dangerous quantity was averted, but the Brown system of starting got 
a worse black eye than Nick Hall sported after the battle. I think we 
have seen the last of it on any metro pplitan track, for which heaven be 
P ralsed! The Rounder.

A DOCTOR is a most necessary adjunct to the 
'* Tivoli company. He might, with profit be 
stationed in the wings, and, in the intervals be- 
tween scenes, could earn his salary by giving 
the fair Tillie a dose of some "anti-fat." Phil 
Branson might employ him to file his voice. It is 
some time since that operation has been performed 
and it is squeaking again badly. To Robert Dun- 
bar he might administer a soothing potion to take 
the roll dut of his eyes and the nervous little kicks 
out of his legs. When not busy with the princi- 
pals he • ould amuse himself with the chorus and 
remove the ghastly smile from off their rosy lips, 
and chase the weary look from their brilliant eyes. 
And to make sure he wasted none of his time, he

one of these days he will crack his eyebrows — 
and also to breathe naturally and not to clinch

management so confidently expected it would. 
On the contrary, it will be notable in the history of 
the house on account of its failure, one of the few 
the Tivoli has ever known. It was handsomely 
mounted and gorgeously costumed and I noticed 
several new, pretty and consequently most wel- 
come faces in the chorus. 



CIRST ACTRESS— The papers published col- 
* umns about my first divorce trial. 

Second Actress — Oh, you're not in it with me. 
They said the evidence in mine was unfit to print. 



'THE Baldwin atmosphere is sweet and fresh 
* again. The phosphorescent glimmers and 
heavily charged blue streaks, attendants of Mrs. 
Cora Urqhart James Brown-Potter and her darling 
little Kyrle, have disappeared and the air is health- 
ful and entrancing. Instead of Zola's brutal real- 
ism we have the frothy badinage, clever persiflage 
and airy nothings of Carleton's charming little 
comedy. 

THE delay in the arrival of John Drew only 
1 served to increase the interest in the first ap- 
pearance of that popular comedian at the Bald- 
win. The first-night audience was an ultra- 
fashionable one. All the jeunesse dore were there 
to applaud the favorite, till patent leather shoes 
and new chamois gloves were in danger of an- 
nihilation. Almost every summer girl of note in 
town decorated a dress-circle seat or a box. 
There was a remarkable freedom of dressing, 
buzz-saw hats and stiff shirt fronts alternating 
with swagger-gowns. The unanimous verdict of 
the opera-glasses between the acts was that Miss 

T , whose mansion crowns the very apex 

of Nob Hill, was the best dressed lady in the 
house. Horatio, the lawyer, he of the voluble 
tongue and diaphanous physique, was in evidence 
with a large party. Bankers were as thick as 
flies in a family boarding-house. The political 
world was represented by Colonel Burns, whose dia- 
monds added an additional lustre to the proscenium 
boxes. The female Czar of the local Four Hundred 
was on hand looking as awe inspiring as Mrs. 
Stuart- Dodge of Philadelphia in the play. The 
Misses Quartzmine and others on whom Prince 
Poniatowski lately cast calculative glances were 
conspicuous. Bohemia was also strongly repre- 
sented. It was a great success for Mr. Drew. 
He is very popular with the butterflies. 



DANDITS, even the romantic ones in velvet 
^ breeches and plummed hats, went out of 
date with the inglorious end of Evans and Sontag. 
" Dick Turpin " might have been saved and even 
handed down to posterity fresh and new in its coat 
of success had the authors introduced Pete Bigelow 
in a patented "interview scene." It appears that 
H. Grattan Donnelly personally sought to induce 
the interviewer to lend his scintillating presence 
to the production and that the management 
backed his efforts by offering a stupendous salary. 
But to no avail. Pete would have had to sacri- 
fice his moustache, and the girls won't have it. 



MR. JOHN DREW will begin the second week 
''* of his engagement at the Baldwin Theatre 
on Monday evening, presenting for the first time 
in this city "The Masked Ball," Bisson and 
Carre's comedy, in which he made his first suc- 
cess as a star. It ran for an entire season in New 
York. It was in this comedy that Miss Maud 
Adams became famous over-night on account of 
her clever assimilation of tipsyness. It will be 
given with the original cast. 



DRESS AGENT— What! you don't like my 
* new farce-comedy soubrette ? I tell you, 
man, you're bilious ! Why, she dances and sings 
like a bird ! 

Country Critic — I'll admit that she dances 
like a bird — but she can't sing. 



IT is a long time since we have had such anall- 
* round good company at the Baldwin. To 
praise Drew is unnecessary. He is as naturally 
charming as of yore. Maud Adams, who returns 
to us with all the dignity of a leading comedienne, 
has yet to rid herself of many Alcazar angles and 
mannerisms. Anna Belmont, the spirited little 
Suzanne, whose picture heads this column, we 
have taken to our hearts at once. She is graceful, 
pretty and vivacious. And Harry Harwood as 
Hiram Greene is the first man we have seen who 
has not overacted a part of this kind.

liY A SHAKi'. 



THE Park band has begun its regular work 
which was somewhat relaxed on account of 
the Midwinter Fair. There is no doubt that it is 
our best popular organization and the public gives 
its spontaneous appreciation for the splendid per- 
formance so ably directed by Mr. A. Spadina. 
Last Sunday an immense crowd listened to the 
well-selected programme. The pieces that pro- 
voked most applause were "Semiramide" by 
Rossini, " Oberon " by Weber, " I Pagliacci " by 
Leoncavallo and Sousa's march which has not 
yet lost any of its — soothing qualities. Miss Cook 
added to the success of the performance, playing 
several numbers and a good many encores with 
much effect. We must be thankful to Mr. A. 
Spadina for the new vigor and spirit he has in- 
fused into his band which is bound to bring a 
healthy result upon the general taste. 



IW1 R. HUGO MANSFELDT will give next Thurs- 
day evening a " Piano Recital " at the Con- 
gregational Church of Oakland. The programme 
includes selections from Bach, Beethoven, Schu- 
mann, Chopin, Liszt, Raff and Tausig. besides six 
of his own composiiions. Mr. Mansfeldt's extra- 
ordinary ability and well-established reputation are 
a guarantee that all diligent students and true 
amateurs will pass an interesting and enjoyable 
evening by assisting at his recital. 



|\AR. H. WISMER, the young violinist, will soon 
give a " Farewell Concert." He intends to 
go to Berlin and finish up his studies. Many good 
qualities entitle him to look for a brilliant future, 
and it is to be hoped that his many friends will 
help him morally and materially as in due time 
they shall be surely satisfied to have facilitated 
thus the future success of this talented young mu- 
sician. 



nTHE Midwinter Quintet," of which G. Sald- 
ierna is violinist, W. E. Bates, cornetist, 
G. W. McNeice, clarionetist, and C. Prince 
pianist, gave its debut-concert last week at the 
Metropolitan Temple, obtaining a decided success, 
through a programme of popular music. 



MR. SALDIERNA has in himself the stuff of a 
soloist and although until now he has been 
obliged to make the trying routine of orchestral 
work, his performance (especially playing the 
second mazourka by Wieniawski) revealed many 
splendid qualities. First of all he possesses a 
natural cavala (tone), then his intonation is perfect 
and the spark of Promethean fire animates his 
playing. The gentleman is young yet and if he 
would, or rather if circumstances would, allow him 
to practice up an artistic repertoire, he would 
surely distinguish himself above many of the 
others, who, after having been abroad studying with 
the "great," the " grand," the "wonderful," and 
practice now six hours daily, only succeed in 
reconciling their listeners with the embraces of 
Morpheus. 

Mr. Bates is already too widely known as an 
accomplished soloist to need recognition. Mr. 
Tobin also shows talent in many directions. He 
plays the trombone and sings with ease and grace- 
fulness, evidently trying to subdue mechanism to 
the aesthetic Mr. McNeice and Mr. Prince deserve 
commendation for their cleverness in the manipu- 
lation of their respective instrument, adding much 
to the success of this new combination. 



performing " Una voce poco fa " from Rossini's 
" Barbiere," and as it is almost always the case 
among us, her friends applauded her, encourag- 
ing thus the free and easy stage deportment which 
the young lady has already in a too exuberant de- 
gree. These half- finished amateurs with the pre- 
sumption of consummate artists should be subdued 
instead of elated by foolish flattery. Through a 
natural falicity and a crystalline soprano voice, 
Miss Krehmke showed faults of registers, of 
breathing, of enunciation and pronunciation. Al- 
together her voice has deteriorated since 1 heard 
her four years ago when she was taking part in a 
chorus which was for a philanthropic society. 
The best thing for her to do is to stop singing for 
several months, then find a teacher who at least 
knows that all success depends upon the proper 
treatment of the middle register to obtain the de- 
sired effects. 



Amusements. 



i* AN Evening with Mozart" was given by a 
Mrs. D. Davis and a Mr. A. Armand 
Solomon, Thursday evening. Wonderful inter- 
pretation ! Divine revelation ! Poor Mozart ! 
This is another case of half-finished amateurs put- 
ting on airs of thorough musicians and teachers, 
but the worst is that they succeed in finding people 
who lose their time and money taking what, in 
their ignorance, they believe to be a lesson. 



f^ASASSA'S BAND made so many friends and 
admirers by its excellent playing during the 
late Fair, that the San Francisco music-loving 
public would like to hear a series of concerts 
given by it in some theatre or hall. If this could 
be arranged, that a successful season would be 
assured is the opinion of all.

PERSONALITIES. 



THE Martin will case adds another to the list of . 

memorable contests in San Francisco for 
dead man's shoes. Here, indeed, is a rare field 
for some enterprising dramatist. Henry Martin, 
a hard-headed, self-made man, shrewd to a de- 
gree in business affairs and old in the world's 
ways, expresses on every necessary and unneces- 
sary occasion an aversion for his brother's wife. 
He is believed by all his confidential friends to 
regard her a dangerous and designing woman who 
had married his aged relative solely to circum- 
vent his wealth. She presents a son to this aged 
husband, who is woefully mismated by the con- 
trast of his debility with her full and blooming 
womanhood, and the circumstance seems such a 
physical phenomenon to Henry Martin that he 
freely casts doubts on the paternity of the child. 
Yet, after all the display of disesteem, he dies, 
and lo ! from among his posthumous papers 
comes a will leaving to the child he had repu- 
diated as an imposition on his brother the wealth 
he had himself worked so hard and so long to ac- 
quire. This is a new phase of human nature for 
the study of novelists and dramatists. It may be 
called reactionary mentality. A man apparently 
sane starts out with the well-defined purpose of 
detesting some person and giving everyone 
in whom he confides to understand his feel- 
ings, and when he has worked himself up to the 
top notch of his hatred, he sits down in the priv- 
acy of his office and writes a will, giving all he 
possesses to the object of his detestation. We 
have had our credulity tested very violently by 
various will cases in California, but the Martin 
lawsuit caps the climax. Prospective heirs need, 
in future, not trouble themselves to win the love 
and affection of the rich old relative, on whose 
shekels they have designs. They should do any- 
thing they please to incur his dislike and by the 
process of "reactionary mentality" described, the 
offended capitalist will turn in his bed just before 
he dies, and write them a will, giving them all his 
worldly possessions. If he forgets to write a will 
they can get some one else to do it and, by prov- 
ing they were cordially hated, get the estate just 
the same. I should like to know how much further 
fin de seicle law can go. 



tached to the Essex while I was in that vessel. In explanation 
1 wish to say that the officers herein described are well known in 
this city. Some of them, having married San Francisco ladies, are 
right in it here. Besides this, our naval officers are received into 
the best society the world over. They are, in fact, our nearest ap- 
proach to titled aristocracy. To this latter reason, principally, is 
due the remarkable fact that they are always in demand in the better 
elements of our society as well as at the gatherings, public and pri- 
vate, of our coarse, vulgar, Un-Americanized, semi civilized parve- 
nucracy. Therefore, I think it would be a serious mistake on my 
part to omit some information that 1 possess concerning certain 
naval officers. To know a man well it is necessary to have seen 
him under a great variety of circumstances. 

What 1 know of these gentlemen 1 could never have known as I 
do had I not sailed on the same ship with them. 

The officers of the Essex were : Theodore F. Jewell Commander, 
George A. Bicknell, First Lieutenant, A. V. Wadham Navigator. 
The watch officers were Lieutenants Galloway and Walling, En- 
signs Fechteler, Poundstone and Loomis. Mr. Fechteler is the 
son-in-law of an eminent San Francisco jurist. 

Leader Chambliss " opens up the ball," figura- 
tively speaking, by describing one at Yokohama, 
where the Essex had cast anchor after six long 
months at sea and found Admiral Chandler and 
staff already in the social swim up to their necks. 
The Admiral told Captain Jewell that in no other 
place outside of San Francisco could a fellow have 
more fun in a quiet way without running any 
risks of being shot by jealous husbands than he 
could right in Yokohama. 

Captain Jewell returns to the Essex and causes 
the mouths of the long pent-up seadogs to water 
by telling them of the good times in store. The 
ladies of Yokohama hasten in the preparations 
for the grand ball and it finally blazes into actual- 
ity. The " night before Waterloo " isn't a cir- 
cumstance to it. The " sounds of revelry by 
night," Leader Chambliss tells us, include such 
soul-inspiring melodies as " If You Love Me, 
Darling, Tell Me With," etc., etc., "After the 
Ball is Over," " Love Will Find a Way," etc., etc., 
etc. The temperature among the Yokohama Four 
Hundred rises to one hundred and twenty de- 
grees in the shade and icewater has no effect on 
it. Leader Chambliss, winding up his realistic re- 
view of the function, naively remarks, " The ball 
was literally a ' howling success.' It settled the 
fate of most of our officers during the sojourn of 
the Essex in Yokohama." 

I am promised a look at the proof-sheets of the 
chapters to be devoted to the naval maneuvers in 
the San Francisco swim. I have no longer any 
doubt of Leader Chambliss' ultimate fate. 



CHARLEY WIELAND S BROTHERS-IN LAW. 

I SEE that Charley Wieland's lovely brothers in- 
law are turning him up again. They object 
to his executor's report. Poor Charley ! When 
he was spending his money like water he was the 
prince of good fellows. Now that he is down his 
delightful relatives kick him as enthusiastically as 
anyone else. These unfilial relatives are likely to 
be brothers-in law, and very much in law, longer 
than they bargained for. As I understand it they 
are now about $30,000 ahead of the game them- 
selves instead of getting the worst of it. This they 
will find when the final account is filed. They 
cinched Charley by foreclosing, in true Asa Fiske 
style, the mortgage they held on his property, and 
they have not yet paid S. M. Shortridge a quarter 
of the fee any lawyer of standing can collect on 
an estate of a million and a half. 



CHAMBLISS ON THE NAVY. 

COCIETY-LEADER CHAMBLISS, the succes- 
sor to Mr. Ned Greenway and J. Brett Stokes, 
has finished with the civilian branch of his coming 
great work on "Local Society as She Is" and 
taken up the military and naval wings of the sub- 
ject. From what I have read of the proof-sheets 
of this part of Mr. Chambliss' book, I am much 
inclined to think he will have several large-sized 
libel suits on his hands unless the Coroner takes 
charge of him, which is very likely. A chapter of 
reminiscences of his society adventures on the 
United States Warship Essex is very tropical. 
Lest the author's revelations may be regarded as 
a breach of confidence and a violation of naval 
ethics, Leader Chambliss apologizes for his expose 
with the following ingenious phraseology : 

To some good honest citizens of San Faancisco it may seem 
strange that 1 should, in this volume, give detailed accounts of the 
doings of certain officers of the United States navy who were at-

'THE nomination of an available candidate for 
County Clerk is a question which the local 
Democracy will have no trouble in getting this 
year, as I understand that M. C. Haley, the pres- 
ent clerk, is as good as on the ticket already. This 
determination is due to the excellent record he has 
made. He has made a most efficient public officer 
and his honesty has not been once questioned. 
His late fiscal report is the best recommendation 
he could have. It bespeaks the correctness of his 
business methods and the economy practiced in 
his department. Taxpayers have been most agree- 
ably surprised by the management of the County 
Clerk's office since Mr. Haley took office. 

For the first time since 1870 the present admin- 
istration of the County Clerk's office has been self- 
supporting, not only paying all its expenses for 
salaries and supplies, but turning over to the 
Treasurer the handsome surplus of $2,21363. 

In the early history of the county, prior to 187 1, 
the balance jheets repeatedly showed a profit to 
the county, but since that year Mr. Haley's is the 
first to do so. 

During his term of office Mr. Haley will have 
saved for the city and county $115 481 66. 

Every detail of the office receives the personal 
supervision of Mr. Haley. The result, as shown 
by his report, is self-evident. If such a steadfast- 
ness and admirable conduct are not to be re- 
warded, there will be little incentive for upright 
officials to serve the people. 



received the novice most affably, of course, seeing 
in the dim distance a fat fee, for the young lady 
had the air and outward indications of one not 
troubled with thoughts of the long protracted fi- 
nancial depression. The performance began by 
the opening of a big score of an opera. 

"But I do not know how to sing," observed the 
aspirant. 

Madam vigorously combated such modesty. 

"Never mind, I think T know what I am 
doing." 

The novice, encouraged by such persuasive as- 
surances, opened her mouth timidly and uttered 
what might be called a scale. She stopped. 
Madam had apparently fallen in a fit of hysteria. 
It was only an ecstasy of joy, however. 

" Ah, what a beautiful voice you've got ! Your 
throat, my child ! " the voice-builder exclaimed 
as soon as she recovered her composure. 

Whatever will become of those millions in the 
young lady's throat the Madam did not get her 
hooks on any of the dollars in -the young lady's 
pocket-book, for the exaggerated expressions of 
praise so disgusted her that she bundled up her 
music and left without listening to any more. 

Had the young lady been of a more credulous 
character of course she would have been imbued 
with the belief that it was her destiny to eclipse 
Palti's career, and before she left the voice- build- 
er's apartments would have signed articles for a 
regular course of instructions with the inevitable 
debut and promised operatic triumph before the 
crowned heads of Europe, in the dim distance. 

A GRAND SHOWING! 
San Francisco, Cal., May 28, 1894. 
C. M. Oakley, Esq , Manager Mutual Reserve 
Fund Life Association, San Francisco, Cal, 

Dear Sir: I hereby acknowledge receipt of check for $4,500, 
balance due in full payment of claim under policy No. c6 059. is- 
sued by the Mutual Reserve 1 und on the life of Edward A. Mont 
gom- ry, late of ibis city. 

I also de.ire 10 express my thanks for the prompt payment of 
same. The advance payment of ten per cent if the face of the 
policy immediately upon notice of death of the insured, which in 
my case was made, is a most commendable feature. 1 am pie sed 
to command my friends, intending insurance to this nobl" institu- 
tion. Veiy respectfully, AGNhS S. Montgomery, Gua dian. 

P. S. — If the late Edward A. Montgomery had 
taken an ordinary life policy, in an old system 
company, and paid the same amount of premiums 
as he paid the Mutual Reserve, his heirs would 
only have received $2,219 instead of $5,000. 
Gain by being insured in Mutual Reserve, $2,781. 

Call on, or address C. M. Oakley, 

Manager Pacific Coast Dept., 314 Montgomery St.

THE WASP 



TWO OF A KIND. 



I Translatxt from tht French by W. L. Eyre,) 




ESTLING amid the 
fragrant blossoms of 
the lilac is a pretty 
little villa. Honey- 
suckles, wistaria and 
climbing roses cover 
the outside, while the 
daintiest little slip of 
a lawn f a c es the 
Seine. 

In the pretty little 
breakfast-room sat a 
beautiful young 
woman whose long 
braids of rich dark 
hair had not yet been 
dressed for the day. 

The postman had 
just called and she 
was devouring the contents ot an envelope with 
American stamps on it. 

She had read but a few lines when the letter 
dropped from her nervous fingers and her face 
grew deathly pale as she exclaimed : 

" Mon Dieu .' mon Dteu ! what shall I do?" 
The fateful letter which had caused such a tu- 
mult in the gentle bosom of Louise Latour read as 
follows : 

Rue Ellis, San Francisco, California. 
M'i ektrc Louise : To me the death which I wrote you of by 
suicide has not yet occurred. I persuaded a friend of mine, the 
c/ic/at the rejtamant of the Woolly Dog, to write to the Etais and 
give an account of my death. This you must have seen, for I read 
but lately that you have been married again to Mons. Latour, the 
rich sausage-maker of the Rue de Chien. And now to business : I 
must have live thousand francs sent here within two months. If 
they come not, I shall return to Faris and claim you as my wife. I 
am desperate. Your husband, Leon Blanc 

When Louise had composed her feelings she 
picked up the fallen letter and read it to the 
bitter end. 

She grew faint and rang the bell. Marie, her 
trusted maid, responded. 

" Quick, Marie, a petit verve — I faint ! " 

The maid poured out the cognac and her 
mistress swallowed it at a gulp, and then dismiss- 
ing her maid, she tried to find some key to the 
distressing situation. 

She went to a cabinet and, unlocking a secret 
drawer, took out a bundle of old letters. 

Out dropped a photograph of Leon in the uni- 
form of a cuirassier. 

How handsome he looked in his regimentals ! 
How different to old Latour, with his fat, ungainly 
figure ! And he was alive still ! A throb of the 
old love shook her bosom as she thought of what 
joy had been theirs before he drank, gambled, 
ran into debt and had to flee from France and 
her. 

For half an hour Louise remained wrapt in 
thought. How was she to get the money to send 
Leon, for get it she must ? At any price he must 
be silenced. 

Ah ! the deeds to the Villa Latour ! Could she 
not raise so small a sum as five thousand francs 
on it and its contents ? 

She rang the bell for Marie. 

"Fetch me quickly the little tin box in the sec- 
ond bureau drawer." 

Marie brought it. 

" Now dress me. I go to Paris," said Louise as 
she entered her cosey little boudoir and threw her- 
self into a chair. 

In half an hour she was in the dingy little office 
of Mons. Caret, on the Rue St Honore, and after 
that lawyer and money-lender had drawn up a 
long legal document, which she signed in blind 
faith, and she had deposited her deed in his safe, 
he handed her a check on the Bank of France for 
five thousand franc. 

With the check Louise proceeded to the bank 
and there sent a draft for five thousand to Leon 
Blanc. 

She felt a wonderful sense of relief as she drove 
home again, for she well knew that Leon would 
surely come to Paris, wreck her life, and probably 



kill Latour, did he not get the money he de- 
manded. 



A week passed without any unusual incident 
occurring to disturb her, when Mons. Latour one 
evening returned home in a furious passion. 

She had hitherto seen but smiles on his face, 
but now he was as purple with fury as one of his 
own saucisses. 

" Ingrale ! " he shouted as he entered the sitting- 
room. '• Married but three months and you de- 
ceive me ! " 

Louise was dumb with fear and astonishment. 
She strove to speak, but in his blind fury he 
pushed her from him. 

"The deed ! Wheie is the deed to this house ? " 
he thundered out. " Caret has told me all." 

And Louise fell fainting at his feet. 

When she came to her senses, she found her- 
self in bed in the dark. 

Instinctively she felt around for the nightcapped 
head of old Latour, but, instead, felt a head cov- 
ered with short, crisp curls. 

It was that of her faithful maid, Marie. 

" Where is Monsieur?" demanded Louise. 

" He called a fiacre an hour ago and said he 
would not be back until noon to-morrow," re- 
plied Marie. 

And Louise sobbed herself to sleep. 

The hours seemed years until noon came and 
a cabriolet drove up, in which was Mons. Latour, 
now calm and collected. 

Louise went to meet him as he alighted, but his 
greeting was cold and formal. 

She determined to tell him all and trust to his 
generosity. 

When they both entered the sitting-room she 
locked the door and unfolded to him the dread 
secret of her life, showing him the suicide letter 
and also the clipping from the Etats which de- 
tailed Leon Blanc's death. She also produced his 
late letter in which he demanded the money. 

" Have mercy on me ! " she cried as she flung 
herself at his feet. " I never told you I had been 
married. His being alive I cannot help. And 
the money ! " 

" Ma chere" said the old man as he drew her 
lovely head to his breast and planted kiss after 
kiss on her cherry lips, " do not let a trifle like 
this interfere with our happiness. I had feared 
that you had found a lover in my absence and 
had borrowed money to give him. As to the 
money, I care not for it. As to your husband — I 
myself have two wives already alive who know 
not of my neighborhood." 



A BIT OF LORE. 

"THERE was a poet who would sing 
* In light, bewitching rhyme, 
Of any man, or anything, 
At any place or time. 
And when an editor one day, 

Had caught him unawares, 
He wrote a verse about the way 
He 

Went 

Down 

Stairs. 

And ever since that time, the bard, 

When inspirations flow, 
Is said to find it very hard 

To keep from writing so. 
And every poet, young or gray, 

His tribute fondly bears, 
To him who wrote about the way 
He 

Went 

Down 

Stairs.

tion. Manufacturer of natural curly bangs of orig-

WANTED A CHANGE. 

Little Dot — Oh, I'd give anything if I was 
old enough to have a husband. 
Mamma — Mercy me! Why? 
Little Dot — I'm so tired of being petted. 



MODESTY. 

DRISCILLA wears glasses — 
' Priscilla so sweet ! 
What blisses would thrill me, 

If I could but meet 
Directly her glances. 

I'm sure they would be 
The essence of star beams 

Descending on me. 

Priscilla wears glasses — 

Though now and again, 
I beg their removal, 

I know 'tis in vain. 
What blushes ! What sighs, 

Should she ever be caught 
With an eye that is naked — 

Oh, banish the thought. 

D ALLETEUSE — I will give you a place in my 
^ heart, M. le Baron. 

The Baron — Thank you, but I'm not fond of

D MAID'S 



' " '; wifT %£i£i> ^L 



I TELL you I just do pity some of 
those married women who live in 
boarding-houses. Poor things, they 
overwork themselves sadly, and life 
must be a burden to them. First 
comes the morning wash, or what 
passes for it. In most instances I find 
it usually consists in a few rubs with 
the dampened end of a towel, around 
the face and neck, leaving a distinct " high-water mark " above the collar. 
Then the whitewashing business comes, and don't they lay it on thick, 
too ! A few dabs of rouge finishes the ghastly picture, and down they go 
to breakfast. They do not usually eat much at this meal, not more than 
a porterhouse steak and eggs and a couple of cups of coffee. The ham 
sandwiches, seagull tamales and other trash they have stuffed themselves 
with the night before takes the edge off their appetites. 



A FTER breakfast comes one of the most important features of the day : 
the visit to the dressmaker. Madam Fibbes is the receptacle for 
all the gossip of our boarding-house. If one woman wants to get in a good 
whack at another, she straightway goes and tells " what she has heard " to 
the Madam, who, as promptly, tells the subject of the scurrilous yarn, who 
at once eases her mind by a verbal shot at her traducer. And so it goes. 
Madam Fibbes, who says she is from Paris, but speaks " south of Market " 
with a most decided Corkonian flavor, holds a regular reception from 10 
A. M. to 2 p. m., and enough scandal has been talked in her little back 
room to blister the ceiling. 



XX7ELL loaded with the latest gossip, the recipient returns home for 
lunch, first calling in at her husband's office or store to see what 
amount of cash she can " pull his leg for." 

At lunch she fires the first shots from her scandal-battery, but this is 
only skirmishing, and harmless as the fire of our National Guard at Sacra- 
mento. She saves all her big guns for future use when there is a good 
crowd in the parlor. 

"I wish thst Mrs. Flirty would mind her own business and not go 
talking about me. Wants to know how I manage to wear sealskins when 
my husband only gets twenty dollars a month. Like her impudence. 
Where does she get her money to hire phaetons to drive out to the Cliff 
House in ? And who pays for those suppers she takes at the Maison de 
Hash ? Her husband is a nice kind of a man to wink at the way she car- 
ries on with that horseman from Montana." 

Then she finds her bosom friend, Mrs. Thompson, and that lady 
hints that Mrs. Naggs, the middle-aged lady who is supposed to be mu- 
sical and puts on so many airs at the piano, has been talking about her. 
Said she looked like " a whited sepulchre " when she went " down the 
line " each afternoon, and that the men all laughed at her and guyed her. 

This makes her just pumping mad and she rushes around to find Mrs. 
Naggs, but that lady is not visible. 



UER face, red with excitement, she goes to her room and with a plentiful 
dab of whitewash hides the flush of battle. Then she puts on her 
best clothes, fri2zes her hair and starts out to, "go down the line " on 
Kearny and Market streets. If it is Saturday she takes in the matinee. 

Dinner-time comes and after that meal, usually a pretty poor one, 
comes the battle royal. 

Mrs. Naggs is discovered and at once attacked. She denies having 
called anybody a "a whited sepulchre," and that anyone who says she 
said so tells a lie and knows she does. A hunt for Mrs. Jawbone is then 
in order, but that discreet lady has scented the battle from afar and has 
either locked herself in her room or gone out. 



because I have a few gentlemen friends who take me to the theatre now 
and then — oh, I know you all — but I don't care that (and she snapped her 
fingers in their faces) what you tell my husband," and she bounces out of 
the room. Then Mrs. Thompson arrives and Miss Naggs at once mak=s 
for her. There is loud talking and burning sarcasm. Names not usually 
used in polite society are bandied about, and they all but come to — blows, 
I was going to say — but scratches, I mean. 

But the oddest thing of all to my mind is that next day all these peo- 
ple, who have been abusing each other, are, to all appearances, the best of 
friends. After such a round of excitement and worry is it any wonder she 
goes to bed too tired to even say her prayers or cajole her husband into 
for a new bonnet. Tabitha Twiggs.

own, what old Mrs. Fibbes has told her about the boarders who are 
not present. Just as she is in the middle of a thrilling story of how Mrs. 
Highroller was seen late one night last week standing talking to a gentle- 
man, not her husband, on the steps of a lodging-house on O'Farrell street, 
Mrs. Highroller appears just in time to hear somebody observe : " Someone

HARD TIMES ON KEARNY STREET. 

Mrs Knott Innit — Oh, what lovely hats ! 

Mrs. Fligh — Don't look at them. If you do, 
they'll take your name and deluge you with pos- 
tal-cards and circulars. 




STRANDED TURKS. 

The Midwinter Fair is over ; 

We've thrived by our little fakes, 
And now would ride home in clover, 
Perched upon free-air brakes ; 
But the strike 
We don't like, 
For a dynamite cartridge shakes. 

OOL— What does that " M. P." on the po- 
licemen's badges stand for? 
Van Pelt — Money, Please. 

THE WONDER. 
" If I were asked," said a well-known lady the 
other day, " which is the best named millinery 
store in the city, I should unhesitatingly answer 
'The Wonder.' The display of hats, flowers, 
feathers, etc., there is wonderful and the extreme- 
ly moderate prices are ' a wonder ' to all lady 
shoppers.

AFTER THE CLASSIC HIGH JINKS. 
Uncle George — It's no use, Julius Ca^ar, 



won't go home 'till morning. 

Julius Cesar — Shall I have to summon the 
Pretorian Guards, Marc Antony ? 

Uncle George — Pretorian Guards ? What,

thought the Fair was over. 



PRETTY LADIES. 



Traveling in the Northern States one is agree- 
ably surprised at the beauty of the ladies. Their 
complexion is so clear and rosy and so free from 
blemishes that it is a pleasure to look at them. 
This is owing to the fact that Wakelee's Camelhne 
is used as a proventative of sunburn, freckles and 
roughness of the skin, giving a bloom and fresh- 
ness which makes the plainest face attractive. 
Indorsed by physicians. Sold by all druggists; 
50 cents per bottle.

" By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws which govern the 
operations of digestion and nutrition, and by a careful application 
of the fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr Epps has pro- 
vided for our breakfast and supper a delicately flavoured beverage, 
which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judi- 
cious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradual- 
ly built up until strong enough to resist eve»y tendency to disease, 
Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack 
wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many a fatal 
shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a 
properly nourished frame." — Civil Service Gazette.

DRENDERGAST has at last paid the death penalty for his cowardly 
assassination of Carter Harrison, the Mayor of Chicago, and another 
crank gone to join the big crowd collected "on the other shore." Pren- 
dergast was not even an anarchist, but simply a human fiend possessed with 
fh~e idea ThaVnis - "mission in life was to kill some prominent man. The 
country is full of just such men and the sudden taking off of even the head 
of the executive is liable to occur at any moment. Advanced ideas, par- 
tial education, incendiary speech makers and anarchism are the foster 
mothers of these murderous cranks, whose numbers are constantly on the 
increase.

IT is related that it once fell to an 
' Atchison man to break the news 
to a woman that her husband had 
been killed. 

" Do you know," he said, calling at 
her house, "that with your light hair 
and pretty complexion you would 
break every heart in town if you 
dressed as a widow ? " 

She blushed and laughed. 

"And you are one," he added; 
"your husband was just blown to 
atoms down in the boiler works, but 
then black is so becoming to you." 

HTWO of the Grand Pashaw's wives 
* had been beheaded, and their

There is more Catarrh in this section of the 
country than all other diseases put together, and 
until the last few years was supposed to be incur- 
able. For a great many years doctors pronounced 
it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, 
and by constantly failing to cure with local treat- 
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has 
proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and 
therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's 
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & 
Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure 
on the market. It is taken internally in doses 
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly 
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. 
They offer one hundred dollars for any case it 
fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials.

just as I expected ! All the cranks in 
the country are rushing into the Popu- 
list party. That is always the way with 
a political reform movement. No mat- 
ter how good may be the fundamental 
principles, the lunatics of the country 
jump in and weight the platform down 
so that it sinks out of sight at once. 



"THE Populist movement in Oakland is no exception to the rule. Every 
incurable lunatic in the city of riots and churches has taken off his 
coat and gone to work to make the movement ridiculous. The Alameda 
County Convention opened up like a soiree at the Agnews Asylum for the 
hopelessly insane. When all the long-haired cranks were given seats the 
convention enlarged its numbers and functions and took in a lot of colored 
porters and shoeblacks to help nominate the county officers. The fair sex 
were next added to the convention and inaugurated reform in politics by 
expelling two delegates who had offered to " trade votes." The committee 
did the firing out. No investigation was held. The victims were not even 
heard on the subject. In an ordinary political convention such an ukase 
would cause a riot. Your crank who rails at despotism is, however, as a 
rule, the most Czir-like of despots when he gets a ghost of a chance. He 
is a tyrant so unbending that all that is necessary to squelch him is to ele- 
vate him to office and forthwith he tumbles from his pedestal with such 

force as to break his back. 

* * * 

\X7HEN the big railroad strike first opened, nine out of ten residents of 
Oakland were in sympathy with the strikers. When their own ferry 
system was interfered with and only the creek boat connected Oakland 
with San Francisco these sympathizers grew cold. As time advanced and 
the blockade continued, they grew colder, and now, when the S. P. R. R. 
has signified its intention of suing the city of Oakland and Alameda county 
for the expenses incurred, and damage done during the strike, to say that 
those people " squeal," would but feebly express how they feel. They fairly 
howl as they denounce the strike and strikers in general. It is queer how 
■our interests dominate our sentiments. 

* * * 

A N English exchange publishes in the advertising column " A sure cure 
for blushing." Blushing is a complaint which never did affect our 
California girls to any dangerous extent, but since the Brown-Potter dis- 
robing scene at the Baldwin the art of raising a hectic flush to the cheek on 
the most serious provocation has become a lost art in San Francisco. 

* # * 

C TRIKER WORDEN, who is accused of having wrecked the train near 
Sacramento, turns out to be well-connected and was once a superin- 
tendent of construction. He evidently moved downwards, however, in- 
stead of up in the corporation service and finally before he became a labor 
agitator filled the responsible but not luxurious post of brakeman. He 



furnishes a beautiful and touching lesson on the mutations of fortune and 
the workings of human nature. If he had gone up the ladder instead of 
down, the chances are that he might be trying to put a fence round the 
earth for his employers instead of laying schemes to brush them off the 

face of it. 

* *■ * 

/CLEVELAND'S stand on the tariff question has created an im- 
mense disturbance in the Senate. The men who have been 
working in the " sugar trust " interests have hitherto concluded that 
the President would at any rate remain passive in the matter. Now, that 
he has shown his hand in such a most unmistakable manner there is a 
scattering and scurrying iike that caused when an eagle swoops down into 
a poultry yard. It is interesting to note how these sugar-coated politicians 
squirm now that they find that they find that their infamy has been officially 

announced to the people. 

* * * 

'THE idea of the po sibility of one trance medium libeling another seemed 
such an absurdity that quite a number of people were attracted to 
Judge Campbell's Court last week to hear the case of Bell vs. Mrs. Whitney. 
When Judge Campbell heard that the libel merely consisted of the defend- 
ant stating that " Bell was an ex-convict by his own statement," he 
promptly dismissed the case. Evidently the Judge thought this was gross 
flattery. The curious public went away disappointed. They had come to 
hear something " spicy" and had a right to expect when two mediums were 
at war that they would be regaled by news that one of them had done 
much worse than serve a sentence in a penitentiary. It takes something 
pretty hard to constitute a libel on a trance " fake," in Judge Campbell's 

opinion at least. 

* * * 

\S/HAT has become of all the various freaks that were congregated at 
the Midwinter Fair is a question now troubling the public mind. 
Quite a number of bogus Turks have gone back to the pawn-brokery busi- 
ness. As to the rest of the inhabitants of "Sunset City " they seem to 
have been lost in the shuffle. A respectable sprinkling of Bedouin Arabs 
are back driving street-cars on the North Beach and Mission lines. The 
50000 other freaks of " Sunset City " are not idle. They are organizing 
Populist lodges all over California and getting ready to make a dime 
museum out of the State Capitol as soon as the government is turned over 
to them. 




A SWAGGER WEDDING OFF. 



Miss Nobhill — When we get married, Count, you can buy me a duck 
of a hat like that each week. 

Count Speghetti — How mucha the charga ? 

Miss N. — Oh, only $40. 

Count S. — Sucre vermicelli! Isa the railroad strika over ? Adieu. 



THE WASP. 




Oh, shout it to the jocund breeze / 
And cry, with truthful mind, 

No fake in this month, if you please— 
Max Popper has resigned. 

This grand old legend of the past, 

This tale, so color blind. 
Has proven solemn truth at last — 

Max Popper has resigned. 

There's mourning on the cobblestones, 

Where Max was ever kind, 
He swept them gently, never rough, 
But now he has resigned. 



HE HAS RESIGNED. 

Alas I how soft that sweeper went. 

What dust it left behind, 

Yet faithfully Max drew his pay. 

But now he has resigned. 

So pure he was in politics, 

Disinterested, kind ; 
He never, never made a cent. 

But now he has resigned. 

He never cared for party loot ; 

He had a lofty mind. 
He never sought a nice soft thing. 

Oh, no ! — but he's resigned. 



And when Max went to Washington, 

His contract to rebind, 
Of draying for the Custom House 

( This was ere Max resigned), 

Grim Grover failed to see the point ; 

Max scoffed at Cleveland's mind, 
And deemed his intellect light weight, 

But now he has resigned. 

When Democrats who had no sop 
To quarrets were inclined, 

Max ever gently choked them off. 
But now he has resigned. 




IMPERVIOUS TO TIME. 

Mr. Razzle — Funny, isn't it, how we men get baldheaded and you 
women don't. 

Miss Dazzle — I don't think it's strange. You know we women 
never get to be old enough for that. 



AT last I'm confronted by poverty, gaunt, 
*■■ A victim to countless remorses ; 
But 'twas not my fast life that reduced me to want 
So much as it was my slow horses. 



And yet some sapient minds will see 
A mighty hand behind. 

The reasons — pure and straight, of course- 
Why Max at last resigned. 



M 



R POM PUS — Sir, I had kings among my ancestors." 
Mr. Po Ker — Well, I would rather have aces. 



<• i \A/HAT makes you look so blue this morning ? " I asked young Gads- 
" by, as I met him walking up California street yesterday morning 
on his way to the bank, where he clerks. 

"Blue — deah boy," replied Gad (who effects the heavy Britisher 
though he was never nearer the British Isles than Boston), " it's enough to 
make a fellah feel blue to find out he's married an ass." 

" Dear me ! " I exclaimed, " I always thought Mrs. Gadsby a most 
intellectual woman." 

" So she is in most things, but, deah boy, when she deals with finance 
she's — aw — well — not quite at home. When I got home to Sausalito last 
night Mrs. G. ran to meet me at the garden gate, and before I could open 
it she said excitedly : 

" Will, I have made two hundred dollars this afternoon." 

" How ? " I asked, wondering if she had gone demented. 

" You know that grand piano you bought second-hand for me ? " 

"Yes." 

" You paid three hundred dollars for it, didn't vou ? " 

"I did." 

" Well, I've sold it for five hundred dollars." 

"My! my! what a business woman you are!" I exclaimed in sur- 
prise ; " what are you going to do with the money ? " 

" There isn't any money." 

" Eh ? " I blurted out in astonishment. 

" No, I sold it to a dealer. He gives me a new piano for one thous- 
and dollars and allows me five hundred dollars for the old one." 

" Do you wonder I look blue ? " 

And I didn't. 

A N empty pocketbook, it has been said, is often the relic of a lost race, and 
*^ this is the season of the year when these relics accumulate in the West. 



THE WASP. 



ROUND AND ABOUT. 



EAR GIRLS ! how they love the Lurline Baths ! That big 
tank is a great attraction for them, and I confess it is for me, 
for it gives more phases of human nature at a glance than you 
could see under ordinary dry-land conditions in a lifetime. 
The talented gentlemen who built the baths thought they 
were doing a big thing in the way of putting the fair sex 
under heavy obligations when they set two half-days 
in each week apart for the exclusive use of the afore- 
said fairies. So everyone else thought. How little 
did all of us know of the incomprehensible inconsist- 
encies of feminine character ! For a tew weeks the 
ladies came in bevies, droves and mobs. They 
splashed and sputtered and uttered suppressed 
shrieks when they gulped down stomachfuls of the 
pungent ocean salt. Everything seemed satisfactory 
and conducive to their complete satisfaction, but alas ! 
there was a woeful deficiency. There was a short- 
felt want which daily increased, till it became the 
paramount necessity of the hour. The much felt 
want was the same that has perplexed the female 
mind ever since the primeval mother opened her dewy 
optics on the transcendent glories of the Garden of 
Eden. Man was the necessity of the Lurline Baths. 
This fact is now advertised in unmistakable fashion. 
The fair sex ignore the " For ladies only " rule of the 
baths on two days in the week and flock to the big 
tank on the other four when it is as full of horrid big 
strong men in scant bathing-suits as a sardine-box is 
of fish. And the way they enjoy themselves in the 
mixed society is an eye-opener for Greer Harrison. 
I notice that he keeps both eyes on it when he sits in 
the gallery occasionally and notes the antics of the mermaids beneath. 




uU/HO is the athletic looking young man singing, 'A Life on the 
■" * Ocean Wave ? ' " 

" Why, that's the duck that got so seasick coming from Oakland last 
night." 



/^F course, when the fair sex have no objections to rollicking in the big 
tank with the men, the latter do not object. All the about-town celeb- 
rities find their way to the big salt-water receptacle and the dude fraternity 
is not unrepresented. By unanimous consent, young Blank, the heir of 




NOT HE RIGHT BRAND.

" Here's yer new hat, Miss,

THAT FOURTH OF JULY CHECK. 



an affluent wholesale merchant, has been crowned king of the bath-tub 
dudes. His bangs are the wonder of the girls and the despair of the other 
Johnnies. He looks too lovely for anything when he gets into his bathing- 
suit after arranging his eyebrows and fixing his swimming- cap on straight. 
He dips one carefully manicured toe in the water like a real nice girl be- 
fore sousing himself in the tank, and when he finally does sink into the 
embrace of the salt fluid, it is with a sigh of relief like a tired belle taking 
off her dancing-slippers after a night of torture with a pet corn. The toilet 
of this premier dude of the Four Hundred — for that is where he belongs — 
is an elaborate affair and needs all the " fixings" of a professional beauty 
to complete. His bangs have to be crimped and his eyelashes penciled ; 
powder and a touch of paint on the cheeks and lips complete his toilet, 
and when he steps out to mingle with the crowd in the gallery, the only 
advantage any girl in the crowd has over him in make-up is in the matter 
of corsets. Even that is dubious. As the ancient poet remarked when he 
saw similar sights in Rome : Ok, tempora / ok, mores / which being trans- 
lated to the vernacular of the Lurline Club gallery lookers-on would mean : 
" Oh, what guys those sons of rich men in San Francisco are to-day ! "

f~\UR Fourth of July statesmen do not stand so high in banking circles 
that it takes a telescope to see them. When the late aggregation of 
patriotism and political ambition, known as the Fourth of July Committee 
of 1894, opened up business, they ordered The Wasp sent weekly to head- 
quarters. At the end of five weeks the committee owed The Wasp the 
munificent sum of fifty cents and proceeded to discharge the ponderous 
obligation by drawing a check for the amount. All the eminent and influ- 
ential functionaries implicated in inciting the patriotic display on the 
Fourth dipped their pens in their ink-bottles and embellished the check 
with autographs that seemed impressive enough to cajole five thousand 
dollars out of Asa Fiske much less fifty cents out of a national bank. The 
Wasp duly presented the check. This and the subsequent proceedings one 
of our talented artists has graphically depicted in the exciting order of their 
sequence. We particularly call attention to the spirited sketch of the 
Cashier writing the talismanic letters N. G. on the back of the check ; also 
to the last resting-place of the precious document among a choice assort- 
ment of spring poems, cigar stumps and other bric-a-brac of a well-regu- 
lated newspaper office. It may be added that the Cashier did not indorse 
the ponderous check " N. G." because of any desire to make jokes at the 
expense of our gallant militia. He is not a humorist, but a bank clerk 
and takes everything in a matter-of-fact style that comes his way — except 



THE WASP. 



a Fourth of July check for fifty cents, signed and countersigned by every 
candidate for municipal office on the Executive Committee, and that means 
about the whole lot of them. We annually hear the conundrum pro- 
pounded, " What on earth is the Fourth of July Committee good for? " 
Now we know what it isn't good for. It isn't good for fifty cents. 



1 1 p\ID he treat you with a studied discourtesy?" 

*^ "I guess so. I never drank anything like it before." 

CEW items in the morning papers during the past week have been read 
with deeper interest or by a larger number of young men than the 
reports of the capture of Melville, the California Bank messenger. There 
are a good many young fellows in San Francisco like Melville. I do not 
mean that they have actually stolen their employer's money like the Cali- 
fornia Bank attache, but they resemble him very strongly in their earnest 
desire to keep up a champagne rating on a steam beer salary. This diffi- 
cult financial exploit almost invariably leads to a shortage in their accounts 
some day and the calling in of Captain Lees. Nine times out of ten the 
case is squelched out of kind consideration of the culprit's family or the 
aversion of the victimized employer to have the fact published broadcast 
that he has been fooled. Captain Lees could write a treatise on this sub- 
ject that would be a most interesting addendum to the blue book. 



A BSCONDER MELVILLE was a clubman in a small way, but even that 
small way was too much for his limited salary. He was a per- 
fect type of his class. He took delight in impressing the chance 
acquaintance with the fact that he was a clubman. In his estimation evi- 
dently connection with a social or athletic organization of young fellows 
started the observance of a set of rules entirely at variance with the hum- 
drum principles that win success and large increase of salary in commer- 
cial pursuits. At heart I have no doubt he was a very excellent sort of 
man, but his head, for the business world at least, was not shaped with the 
necessary amount of level on the roof, so he followed the usual course. 



"THE "usual course" referred to is a well beaten one. Footprints are 
thick upon it and they lead straight towards the most noted institutions 
maintained at the public expense. Many of the tracks are pointed straight 
for the County Jail, a large number wind towards the Morgue, and the 
Almshouse pathway gets its goodly share. 



"THE usual course begins with the "four-bit" Sunday dinner at one of 
the cheap Italian or French restaurants. The future embezzler or ab- 
sconder has just got a job in the bank or counting-house. His foot is on 
the lowest round of the ladder which to his exalted gaze leads to the 
seventh heaven of happiness, where the manager with a fat salary of 
Si 0,000 a year sits smiling, contented and rotund. In the fullness of time 
the young messenger or clerk may occupy the top round of the ladder and 
awe the attentive clerks beneath by his eminence and power. Ambition 
spurs him and youthful energy and natural intelligence win him speedy 
promotion and increase of salary. He changes his lodgings from the 
small side street south of Market to more exclusive quarters. His Sunday 
dinners begin to acquire the luxurious one dollar complexion instead of the 
modest fifty • ent meal that formerly seemed to fill all the requirements of 
the palate and satisfy the refined ideas of modern American luxury. Be- 
fore long the pace set by the young clerk's fast friends takes him consid- 
erably outside the dollar limit. Flying visits to the back rooms of Tender- 
loin District resorts where terrapin stew, small bottles and indiscriminate 
caresses are mixed in bewildering profusion make the young clerk'j salary 
look very bilious every month when he comes to settle a fraction of his 
bills. Then he begins to steal. 



MINE times out of ten there is a woman in the case. She has expensive 
tastes like all such women. It would take four clerical salaries to 
buy her just the hats she wants. She is inseparably bound up with the 
drama, and matinee tickets, flowers, gloves and the many etceteras of a 
Saturday afternoon outing are not procured for the mere asking. Before 
the young clerk realizes the speed of the torrent that is carrying him along, 
he is swept over the Niagara of dissipation and the " Coroner of Dead 
Reputations " is sent to gather up his remains. Captain Lees finds him 
stranded on the rocks below without a friend in the world. The inquest 
does not take long. If the wreck has any considerable part of the plunder 
in his pockets, which rarely occurs, the victimized employers take it and 
let him go. If not, he is, in all likelihood, " put through," but whether he 
goes to jail or not the result is the same. He is dead to the mercantile 
world and another recruit is enlisted in the great army of the chronic un- 
employed, whose care tests the laws and taxes the property-owners. 

PvASHAWAY — I have been taking horseback lessons for the last week. 
^ Cleverton — How are you getting on ? 
Dashaway — I've got so I can sit down. 

C VERY San Francisco clubman has heard the story of John Drew and 
the amateur elocutionist. John, we all know, can recite a little. The 
amateur thinks he is right in it with the best of them, for he played Iago 
once to a houseful of friends and Peter Robertson and George Barnes 
failed to put him on the grill in their dramatic columns the next Sunday, 
so he feels equal to any emergency. I think it was at Burlingame that 



they met — John and the amateur. John " spoke a piece " of about three 
verses. The amateur followed and gave them "Hiawatha" from cover 
to cover — that is to say, he would have given it from cover to cover but 
the clubmen took to the woods, so the story goes, and I give it for what it 
is worth. 



THE story is not at all improbable in the light of what an imported reci- 
tationist of stalwart frame, and corresponding lung power, did to the 
Masonic brotherhood the other evening at a banquet given by Excelsior 
Lodge. After the brethren had sufficiently regaled themselves with the 
substantial viands spread upon the board, the master of ceremonies intro- 
duced a singer, who warbled exquisitely. This was followed with a very few 
remarks by the Grand Lecturer. Thus far the Shakespearean idea of the 
soul of wit — viz : that of brevity — had been happily illustrated. The elo- 
cutionist was then introduced. He was well received and his recitation of 
the " Charge of the Light Brigade " applauded. This fired him with an un- 
quenchable ambition to rise equal to the occasion. It was the opportunity 
of his life. He was " to do or die." He stepped to the front and began 
to recite Tennyson's poem, " Enoch Arden." He continued, unaffected 
by the profound silence reigning around him, which was unbroken for a 
full half hour. Notwithstanding watches innumerable were taken out and 
conspicuously held up, the recitation proceeded. When three-quarters of 
an hour had passed into eternity freighted with his wearying tones, he gave 




up, not from lack of strength, though that of his unwilling auditors had 
long since been exhausted, but because Tennyson did not see fit, not 
knowing of the existence of this elocutionist, to draw out the story of Enoch 
Arden to any greater length. The voice of the self-satisfied recitationist died 
away as the poem ended. To be exact, it was exactly twelve o'clock, the hour 
when it is said " graveyards yawn." The banqueters did likewise. They 
heaved sighs of relief and one after another slowly arose and, like Arabs of 
old, quietly stole away. They did not stand on ceremony, nor wait to 
sing " Should auld acquaintance be forgot," but departed with just enough 
vitality left to escape to their respective homes to seek rest and recupera- 
tion. If you want to make an " Excelsiorite " "get a move on himself" 
this week, all you have to do is to ask him how he would like to hear 
" Enoch Arden." 



JOE McAULIFFE, having clearly demonstrated to the sporting public 
of two continents his incapacity as a fighter, has at last, it appears, de- 
generated into a bar-room brawler and bully. His late little misunder- 
standing with Peter Jackson in the bar-room of the Baldwin shows him in 
the latter light. Jackson, as is well known, is anything but a quarrelsome 
man, and, whatever may be his chances with Corbett, is certainly able to 
wipe the floor with a couple of such wind-bags as " me boy Joe." In fact, I 
am of the opinion that " Young Mitchell," about whom the row originated, 
would give the Mission tanner all he could do to lick him, despite the vast 
difference in their weights. To any judge of pugilism who has ever seen 
the "Mission boy " in the ring, it is a matter of surprise, not that he has 
been beaten so often, but how he ever managed to defeat even such fistic 
chestnuts as Paddy Ryan or Godfrey. He is as slow as a nine-day clock, 
and as clumsy as an elephant turning a somersault, and has neither the 
stomach to take punishment nor the ability to administer it.

/"\N Monday evening Mr. John Drew will begin 
^ his third and last week of his enormously 
successful engagement at the Baldwin Theatre. 
For the first three nights of the week Madeline 
Lucette Ryley's four-act comedy, " Christopher, 
Jr.," which was produced with great success by Mr. 
Drew the last week of the past season in the East. 
On Thursday evening and for the remainder of the 
week, including the matinee on Saturday, Henry 
Guy Carleton's American comedy, " The Butter- 
flies," in which Mr. Drew and his company made 
such a triumph, will be revived. John Drew and 
Maud Adams' love scenes in this comedy are the 
the daintiest, most artistic and most delightful pre- 
sented in San Francisco in some time. " Christo- 
pher, Jr." has for its central figure a brilliant 
young fellow who is a spendthrift and lets the hours 
flit past him on butterflies' wings. His father, a 
level-headed business man, would like to make a 
lawyer or a doctor of the boy, but the young fel- 
low doesn't want a profession, so he goes in for a 
good time and keeps getting deeper and deeper 
into debt. At last his father finds him in an attic 
where he pretends to be living, though really he 
rents a suite of rooms on the parlor floor, and the 
old gentleman tells him among other things of a 
girl he wants him to marry before he will extricate 
him from his troubles. Inasmuch as the young 
man has married a girl without seeing her at all a 
year before, he cannot comply with his parent's 
request. He goes off to India, to represent his 
father in a business way, and there, after many 
odd adventures and causing several people to 
come near fighting duels, etc., he meets the girl 
of his choice and finds to his great joy that it is 
the girl he married before without seeing her. 
The first act of the comedy takes place in a Lon- 
don attic, the second at an English country seat, 
the third and fourth in a bungalow at Bombay.

iATH. 



THE WASP. 




By A Sharp. 



THE agent of a Boston publishing establishment 
is soliciting subscriptions for a new edition of 
old pieces, divided into many volumes. I had 
the chance of examining the sample copies and I 
saw enough to warn all musicians and the public 
at large against such an enterprise which cannot 
be of any advantage. It is only a novel scheme 
to make money. Music nowadays is sold every- 
where at a low rate and there cannot be any in- 
ducement to subscribe for that edition at an exor- 
bitant price unless it offered a rare choice of pieces 
from the best living composers. On the contrary, 
it seems that this has been carefully avoided, es- 
pecially when it concerns the Italian contempor- 
ary writers. 



C EVERAL musicians intend to convoke a meet- 
ing protesting against the resolution taken 
lately by the principal music stores to accord the 
discount of one-half to any purchaser. Formerly 
the third was allowed only to teachers who were 
in the habit of making a little profit on the music 
bought for their own pupils. The loss of this gain 
has put some of them in ebullition ; hence, the 
meeting, hoping to oblige all music-dealers to set 
things for them as they were before. I am thor- 
oughly convinced that such a meeting will be use- 
less. Many Eastern publishing houses, with their 
cheap editions, have compelled all dealers to re- 
duce the fancy prices, but the true reason of the 
recent resolution lies in the fact that as soon as 
amateurs, students or beginners knew about the 
percentage accorded to their teachers to the loss 
of their purses, they pluckily asked for "teacher's 
price," that is to say, everybody was a teacher, at 
least while buying a piece of music. This had 
created such an ambiguity of feeling between 
dealer and purchaser that the aforesaid decision 
was the only wise conclusion to be taken by the 
two principal music stores, Sherman & Clay and 
the Pacific Music Company, also considering that 
the other stores on Market street have been doing 
the "half price-to-all " for a long time. Anyhow, 
I never could understand how a teacher had to 
turn into a sort of mean speculator of cents against 
his own pupil. Settle the price of your lesson, sus- 
tain with decorum the prestige of your honorary, 
be an artist, if you can, but if you want to make 
money then drop experimenting with talent. 



MR, H. J. STEWART has always ready a new 
string to his bow. He has now written the 
incidental music to Shakespeare's " King Henry 
IV," at the request of Frederick Warde, the trage- 
dian, who will appear in that role during the 
coming season, starting in New York. In due 
time he will reach San Francisco, so, beside the 
treat of that artist, we shall have the chance to 
hear this new work of Mr. Stewart. The principal 
numbers are "King Henry IV March," the bur- 
lesque march for "Falstaff's Ragged Regiment'' 
and " Hotspur's March." 

" Bluff King Hal," by the same composer, will 
be given next week in Los Angeles by the Pyke 
Opera Company. 



IWVANY prominent citizens have kindly offered a 
benefit to Mrs. E. Bianchi, who is now pros- 
trated by a severe illness. This lady is the wife of 
Signor Bianchi, the tenor who, before retiring from 
the stage, was so popular among us. The lady 
also has been exercising her profession for many 
years past, being always ready to tender her ser- 
vices for any charitable purpose. It is then noth- 



ing more than just that our leading citizens should 
now give her substantial aid. The benefit will be 
in the form of a concert which will take place next 
Friday evening at the Metropolitan Temple.

A T last I am in receipt of a musical publication 
of some merit and I am only too glad to 
mention it and recommend it to my readers. It 
is a "Gavotte" by Mr. Louis Schmidt, Sr., writ- 
ten with the canons of genuine composition. Al- 
though the musical thought is not essentially new, 
it is, nevertheless, interesting for its scholastic 
character, and only he who is in earnest in his 
study may take up this salon piece. A misprint 
occurs at the sixth and twenty-first bar, and at the 
eighth bar of page three the accidental sharps, to 
notify the passage from E to A, are left out, but 
any performer who is able to play this graceful 
piece will easily correct the faults of the printer. 

A PLEASANT RIDE. 
The steamer Ukiah will make her usual Sun-

profitably passed at the grounds.

PERSONALITIES. 



MOW that the troops have come home from the 
railroad war, I expect to see the battle be- 
gin between the colonels, majors, captains and 
other brass-bound gentlemen in authority in the 
National Guard. It is a notorious fact that they 
have been speaking scandalously of one another. 

"THE other night a group of reporters were dis- 
cussing on the public street the remarks of 
Colonel Geary addressed to the press representa- 
tives at Oakland Mole on the breaking out of the 
" war." The country was still talking of the de- 
fection of some members of the Third Regiment 
when ordered to disperse tae strikers. The es- 
timate placed by Colonel Geary on Colonel 
Barry's talents and knowledge as a commander 
of troops would make the ghost of Falstaff sue for 
criminal libel. The cen- 
sorious Colonel made him- 
self liable to sixty courts- 
martial in as many sec- 
onds so high did his 
choler rise as he discussed 
the Napoleonic aspirations 
of the Commander of the 
Third Regiment and the 
qualifications of his staff 
which he summed up in 
the sweeping verdict, 
"No good on earth. It's 
obtaining money under 
false pretenses to get an 
appropriation from the 
crowd to sport uniforms 
and spurs." No doubt after his fire-eating cam- 
paign on Oakland Mole, Colonel Geary is more 
outspoken than ever about Colonel Barry's com- 
mand which, if he had been Major-General, 
would, judging by his remarks, have been de- 
tailed to hold the kindergartens in check dur- 
ing the strike. 




in each annual statement, but the cost diminishes 
on a regular sliding scale, the prayers for the re- 
pose of ihe dead costing only $10 in the third 
year as against $20 at the start, an instructive and 
suggestive diminution. 

It may be asked by the average lawyer unversed 
in the law what objection can be made to a father's 
paying for his daughter's expenses out of her own 
estate. The objection is no less valid one than 
a list of decisions as long as Barrister Shortridge 
himself and rendered in almost every State in the 
Union. The law expressly states that where a 
father is possessed of sufficient means to pay for 
the proper support and education of his child he 
must do so without dipping into the child's legacy, 
no matter how large. Mr. Keyes has already 
admitted to Mrs. Catherwood's avenging counsel 
that he is worth $150,000, with large expectations 
on the death of his father, and has a regular 
income of $500 a month. He has on his own 
figures taken about $17,000 out of his little 
daughter's estate to pay her necessary expenses, 
so if the law applies with equal force to him, he 
will have to dig down in his capacious sack and 
refund that $17,000 to the Hastings' estate. It 
will not put a cent in Mrs. Catherwood's pocket, 
but I doubt if that vengeful relative would miss 



State to enable such 



'THE people who love to see persons of social pre- 
tensions toasted in the newspapers will have a 
treat next week. The case of Winfield Scott 
Keyes is set for hearing in the Probate Court. It 
promises to be a bonanza for the gossips of society 
and the humorous writers of the daily press. 



J\rt R. KEYES is a fine example of an engineer 
hoist by his own petard. He fixed the der- 
rick to hoist Mrs. Clara Catherwood by dragging 
her into the Probate Court to explain the small 
items of the expense account of her sister, Miss 
Ella Hastings, who is also her ward. Mr. Keyes 
is Mrs. Catherwood's brother-in-law, having mar- 
ried another of the late Judge Hastings' daughters. 
Mrs. Catherwood answered ali the conundrums of 
the Probate Court satisfactorily and had her 
account approved. This accomplished, the irate 
lady instructed her legal adviser, the well-known 
barrister S. M. Shortridge, to give Mr. Keyes a 
dose of his own medicine. Mr. Keyes was accord- 
ingly cited to furnish an account of the moneys he 
had expended out of the estate of his own little 
daughter Azelea, who is also one of the Hastings 
heirs. He is her guardian. To the astonishment 
of everybody, Barrister Shortridge included, it 
was discovered that Mr. Keyes had in the four 
years of his guardianship never filed an account of 
any kind with the Probate Court till cited to do 
so by Mrs. Catherwood's attorney. This was pie 
for Shortridge, and mince pie with cheese on the 
side at that as the sequel is likely to show next 
week. 



THE statement of expenses furnished by Mr. 
Keyes shows that he taxed every cent spent 
on his little daughter to her personal account. 
The items include such expenditures as, "masses 
$20," "funeral flowers $3.75," "tips to waiters 
$5," "Fourth of July $4," "pew rent $15," "pin 
money fifty cents a week." There are " masses " 




forged it ? Ah, there's the rub. By the way, is it 
not a queer coincidence that in this celebrated 
case of alleged forgery the name of the lady on 
whom the suspicion rests and that of the most 
famous bank forgers of modern times should be 
synonyms. She was a Bidwell before she mar- 
ried. The great Bank of England Bidwell forgery 
will remain one of the famous criminal sensations 
of a century. 



CAPTAIN DELANEY UNDER FIRE. 

the joy of seeing brother-in-law Keyes cinched at 
his own game for twice $17,000. She is going to 
marry a man worth six millions. 



THE Wieland family controversy will also be 
revived next week in the Probate Court when 
Charley Wieland appears to explain that the ad- 
ministrator's account objected to by his usurious 
brothers-in-law is all right. These relatives do 
not like the airing of the fact in the newspa- 
pers that they took a mortgage on the property 
of the imprudent Charles and foreclosed him with 
the avidity of Jake Rauer putting the thumb- 
screws of the law on a busted Midwinter Fair 
fake. I understand that these brothers-in-law, 
who got familiar with the luxuries of life by mar- 
rying into the Wieland estate, are now anxious to 
dodge the issue raised by themselves and keep 
out of court by a compromise. The other side will 
not listen to it and the family linen will be washed 
in open court. A good deal of the washing blue 
will stick to the brothers-in-law, I think. 



THE rats of Leidesdorff street were much sur- 
prised last week to read in the daily papers of 
the arrest of a lot of gentlemen who had been enjoy- 
ing the sport of killing them in the pit of Kerr's 
saloon on the previous night. The surprise of the 
rodents was due to the extraordinary names given 
by the prisoners. For instance, fat Tom Doran, 
the politician, was registered as Barkup Sekulo- 
victsh ; Ed Hagan, the courtly cocktail mixer of 
Jim Gilleran's Market-street symposium, was 
written down as a sort of half-naturalized Midway 
Turk ; Darby Laydon, the City Front architect 
was given a title that was strongly suggestive of 
frog's legs and garlic, and several other noted 
pegs in the checkerboard of politics, trade and 
finance got stage names for the occasion. No 
wonder when the surviving rodents of Leidesdorff 
street looked over the morning paper they ejacu- 
lated with one unanimous sardonic squeak : 
" Rats, you tarriers ! " 



THE testimony in the Martin case this week was 
so overwhelmingly against Mrs. John Mar- 
tin, and the witnesses were such credible people, 
that it looks like a foregone conclusion that the 
disputed will must be pronounced a forgery. Who 



I HAD an interesting chat this week with Captain 
Delaney. It would be superfluous to state who 
Captain Delaney is, for his stalwart form and ar- 
ray of glittering medals are as familiar to the 
militiamen of California as Napoleon's white 
breeches and high boots were to the Old Guard. 
Herewith is a spirited and faithful sketch of the 
gallant Captain in the picturesque attitude in 
which he braved the bullets of the strikers on the 
left bank of the Sacramento. The leaden mes- 
sengers of destruction, it can be seen, are hopping 
off the Captain's medals as harmlessly as hail- 
stones from the gilded dome of the State Capitol. 
The Captain has so many trophies of martial 
prowess, and testimonials of regard from his com- 
mand, that when on dress parade he has to hang 
some of his medals on his spurs. He looks every 
inch the soldier he is. 



C'APTAIN DELANEY has a vigorous "kick 
coming to him " over the criticisms of the 
men of the Third Regiment, who, on the memor- 
able Fourth of July, did not take the Sacramento 
depot, but it is alleged laid down their arms. The 
Captain lays all the blame on the high function- 




aries of the militia, and declares that these gentle- 
men, by their utter lack of knowledge, their 
timidity and their general worthlessness in a mili- 
tary emergency, caused the fizzle. The luckless

TO AMUSE HERSELF. 



( Tranttaled Fran tht French hv W, L. K. I 




. OPELESSLY dull was 
the season in Paris, if 
there can ever be such 
a thing in the gay 
French capital. 

It was the end of 
July. The races were 
over, the opera sea- 
son closed, and the 
heat intense. 

All who owned chateaux 
in the country had tied from 
the sweltering city. 

There were, however, two 
exceptions to the rule in the 
persons of Count Leopold de 
Menel and Jasper Flouret. 
The two stood in front of 
a cafe in the Champs 
Elysecs, looking blase and 
bored. 

"Are you going to that 

charity ball at the Salle 

Madelaine to-night?" said 

Flouret. 

"Curious — I was just asking myself the same 

question. Yes ; I think I will look in there for 

half an hour. Coming?" 

" No, thanks ; I have an appointment at ten." 
The ball- room was crowded when De Menel en- 
tered, but as his jaded eyes wandered over the 
assemblage, there was not a single woman that 
even attracted his attention. 

He was about to leave when he caught sight of 
a woman coming up the stairs, who claimed more 
than a passing notice. 

Clad in white silk, and with the ivory of her 
perfect neck and arms scarcely protected from the 
night breezes by a scarf of lace, she came slowly 
upward. Her face, small and oval and pale with 
that milky whiteness which usually goes with cop- 
per-colored hair, was slightly raised as she neared 
De Menel, and her eyes, tawny like those of a 
lioness, met his. 

Before he could recover from the effects of this 
lovely apparition, it had disappeared into the 
cloak-room. 

" Sapriste ! " he muttered to himself, "what 
eyes and what a skin ! Who can she be ? Come 
to join a party here. I suppose, for she is evidently 
alone. I'll think I'll just wait." 

In a few moments she came from the cloak- 
room, this lovely white woman with her crown of 
flame-tinged hair and great eyes like slumbering 
lakes of fire. 

The curves of a her softly-moulded bosom and 
full throat were only broken by a long string of 
large pearls which were twisted thrice around her 
neck and then fell into the hollow of her bosom. 
"Who can she be? Who are her friends?" 
thought Leopold. 

In a flash, Leopold determined to make the ac- 
quaintance of this friendless beauty. 
His chance came. 

Like a pressed out snowflake, the fair unknown's 
handkerchief — a morcel ot scented lace — -fluttered 
to the ground. 

" Pardon, Mademoiselle, you let this fall. Can 
I assist you to find your friends ? " 

She held out her dainty little white hand, and 
lifted those magnetic eyes to his face before she 
spoke. 

" Merci — but I have no friends here," and a 
gleam of fire lit up those glorious orbs of hers as 
she added, "Please don't be shocked — I only 
came here for a little while to enjoy myself. It's 
so dull at home and I am so fond of dancing." 

"Will you dance with me?" he almost whis- 
pered. 

Slipping one hand into his, she answered his 
question by abandoning her lovely form to his cir- 
cling arm with girlish simplicity. 

She was a graceful dancer, and the swaying of 
her body with the exotic perfume which floated 



Irom her ruddy hair and the crushed flowers at 
her breast sent the hot blood leaping through De 
Menel's veins and lit up his passionate dark eyes. 

From the first. De Menel knew that she was a 
lady. Everything about her, from her sweetly 
modulated voice to her Grecian profile and taper- 
ing fingers, bespoke the woman of good birth and 
refinement. 

Beg as he would, she refused to let him know 
her name or address, and only when he threat- 
ened to follow her home, made a rendezvous for 
the next day in the Bois de Bologne. 

After Leopold had seen her into a fiacre and 
had turned to hail one for himself, he saw some- 
thing glittering on the sidewalk and stooped to 
pick it up. 

It was a tiny golden heart, and " Mathilde " 
was written across it in diamonds. She had 
dropped it, for he remembered seeing it at the 
end of her pearl chain. 

Paris saw but lmle of Leopold de Menel for 
three months, but the shady lanes of Normandy 
and his chateau on the Seine, near Tankerville, 
saw much of him. 

His little bijou of a steam launch, with its 
wealth of scarlet silk cushions, spent many an 
hour, with no steam up, anchored under the shel- 
ter of some huge elm tree by the bank of the 
river. 

And all these happy months he was not alone. 

The white woman, with the wealth of chestnut 
hair and the wonderful eyes whom he had met so 
strangely, was with him. 

Her great amber-hued eyes could read his very 
soul and the tendrils of her blood-red hair were 
wound about his heart-strings. He lived but in 
her presence. 

And she — Mathilde Le Breton she called her- 
self — loved him but little in return. 

Despite her languorous looks, smooth ivory 
skin and full curling lips, she was not an affect- 
ionate woman. 

She liked the drives behind De Menel's fine 
horses through the lovely lanes of Normandy, 
and the long dreamy days on the river, and in- 
ferentially she like De Menel as a part of these 
pleasures. 

But no flush dyed her white skin at his 
caresses, nor did her heart beat faster at his 
touch. 

Mathilde had proposed a short trip to Paris, 
and they were traveling along in that direction as 
fast as an express train could carry them. 

Leopold sat and watched her mobile face and 
noted for the thousandth time the sweet curves of 
her mouth and how enhanced was the whiteness 
of her skin by those wonderful terra-cotta tresses. 

Suddenly the glimmer of something wet upon 
her cheek caught his eye. She was crying. 

He asked anxiously the cause. 

" I was only crying a little." 

" But what for, my darling ? " 

" For you — perhaps." 

" For me, Mathilde ! " 

" Yes ; I've some news for you, Leopold, which 
I am vain enough to think you will not like." 

Then as his face grew white and anxious, she 
said hurriedly : 

" As soon as we reach Pans, I'm going to say 
good-bye forever." 

"Good-bye — forever! What do you mean ? " 
he cried like some wounded animal. 

" What I say. We have enjoyed ourselves 
together and I want to thank you for all your 
kindness to me." She drew nearer to him and 
pressed his hand. " But all good things must 
end, and so " 

" You want to leave me ! " cried Leopold pas- 
sionately ; " but I cannot, will not, let you go. I 
could not live without you. Mathilde, dearest 
love, I cannot part from you." 

" But you must." 

" And I had fondly hoped to keep you by my 
side always — to make you my wife." 

" Impossible, Leopold ; I can never marry 
you." 

A spasm of pain contracted his face. 

" Love, do not say such cruel words." 

" Hush ! Leo ; we must never meet again." 

As she spoke the train puffed into the Depot du 
Nord. 

" Put my dressing-bag into a fiacre and go and 



look after the other b iggage, pleise," sud Ma- 
thilde as she sprang quickly from the train. 

He did so. but when he returned a f;.v mo- 
ments later she had gone. 

****** 

For a long time Leopold traveled in search of 
his lost love, and as afier a yeir all hnpe of find- 
ing her had fled, he gave her up as lost. 

It was in August of the following year that De 
Menel found himself as guest at the chateau of 
Baron de Carnie, near Rouen. 

It was a shooting party, and one evening after 
returning from the fields, Ds Menel strolle d into 
the Baroness de Carnie's boudoir. She w as ab- 
sent, but when she returned she found h im as 
white as a ghost, gazing at a miniature on the 
mantelpiece. 

"Ah!" she said gaily, "whose picture has 
made such an impression on you? Oh, I see ; my 
sister." 

"Your sister! This your sister, Baroness? 
Are you sure ? " 

" Sure ! Why, of course I know my own sister. 
Did you ever meet her ? " 

" No — I — but someone very like her." 

"And yet her style was so prononce. Some 
people raved about her, but I myself do n ot ad- 
mire red hair and tawny eyes." 

" What was your sister's name? " 

" Mathilde, or Tilde, as we all used to call her." 

"Used? Is she ■" and a big lump rose in 

De Menel's throat. 

" Dead, do you mean ? Oh, dear, no. Tilde's 
all right. She's a nun." 

"A nun ! " 

" Yes; she entered as a novitiate about a year 
ago. She was in Paris last summer with an old 
aunt preparing." 

"What made so lovely a woman turn nun?" 
asked De Menel. 

The Baroness smiled. "I see now. Must be, 
Count, that you never met Tilde. You ask me 
why she became a nun. No one ever understood 
her. I should not be surprised to hear of her 
drowning herself some day for the novelty of the 
thing. She would do anything on earth just to 
gain a new experience.

I RECEIVED a note from Eliza 
Parvenu the other day. I 
thought Eliza was at Del Monte. I 
read it in the social columns of the big 
dailies, and her letter was dated Del 
Monle. But I cannot understand this. 
The envelope was stamped San Fran- 
cisco. Said Eliza : 

My Dear Tabitha : By the time this letter 
reaches you 1 shall have returned from a forinighfs visit to this glorious spot. Dear Elise is with me 
and we have be. n having a delightful time. I have not allowed the dear child to attend any of the hops. 
She is not out yet, yon know. Anyhow, there was such a scarcity of men at these affairs that it was 
hardly worth while losing her beauty sleep to dance with overgrown youths, without a cent to their 
name? or else with some other girl. But 1 let her go in bathing there are always more or less men 
on the beach. Her arms are lovely, rounded and white, and the contour of her- nether extremities, 
perfect tlise does not swim, she just stands on the sandy beach and dips her great toe in the surf. 
It is very much more satisfactory all round, bait water is most injurious to a really handsome 
bathing suit. But I will tell you more about our visit when 1 sea you. And I must see you 
soon. Can you come Wednesday ? Come early and stay for luncheon. 1 want your valuable advice 



l a most important matter. 



Tout it vous. 



h.LISE J/ARNENU. 



I 



WAS paralyzed when I finished reading that letter. Paralj zed with right- 
eous indignation. My cheeks were flushed and my ears were tingling. 
Such awful stuff. Rounded arms and perfect contour — shocking! Whatever 
has come over Eliza? And then the way she signs her letter, Elise. And 
that French jargon. Yes, Eliza has changed much in the past four years. 
But this was getting worse than ever. I determined to go on Wednesday 
and see her. Go early and stay for luncheon. Anyhow, I just wanted to 
show that man-servant of hers, who answers the bell and does not really 
know whether he will let me in or no, that I am on intimate terms with his 
mistress. 



IT was dismal and cold Wednesday. I walked to Eliza's to get a bit 
warmed up and when I got there I just had a tremendous appetite. 
Luncheon bell was ringing as I entered. I just had time to lay aside my 
bonnet, and started for the dining-room. My, but I was hungry ! 1 did 
not even stop to roll my bonnet strings. Eliza looked queenly when you 
looked at her from the front, but the back of her velvet gown was all puck- 
ered at the neck. Such a dreadful waste of stuff ! The table looked lovely. 
There was an immense bowl of flowers in the middle. The butler waited 
on us. He served us tea, bread and butter and a bit of cold ham. I was 
too mad to speak. And my poor stcmach kept groaning all afternoon in 
a most humiliating manner. 



A FTER luncheon (?) we went into the library. After that meal I was in- 
clined to think that all those books were dummy books. Eliza took 
a big puffed footstool and seated herself by my knee. I felt some dreadful 
confession was coming. This is what Eliza said : 

" Tabitha, I know you are economical and thrifty and I want your ad- 
vice. What is that the ant says — ' In the summer prepare for the winter.' 
That is what I am going to do. You know, my dear, Elise is coming out 
this winter. I have decided to bring her out at a tea. We have hosts of 
friends and I shall have to invite about 400. Just the 400. Now, times 
are hard, Tabitha, and I must economize. This is what I have planned. 
I have tried to do it as cheaply as possible, but I am such a spendthrift. 
Of course, I must have music. Oh, yes, indeed ; it is quite necessary. To 
be sure, the Bungarians are the thing. But they are so ridiculously ex- 
pensive, so I have decided to hire the Macaroni Band and put them in a 
corner all hid with palms. High ones. No one will be able to see them, 
and the society reporters can say : ' The sweet strains of the Bungarians, 
concealed in a bower of palms, came floating out into the perfume-laden 
air.' No cheaper way of arranging that matter presents itself to you, Tabi- 
tha?" 

I just glared at her with a stony gaze. Such deceit! But she did not 
notice it and went on. 



unes on top to make me dish look hi^h, and the rest can be cheese sand- 
wiches. Beverly, he is the butler, you know, he can do the waiting, and I 
will go to the caterer and get some spoons. His are all stamped with a 

big L. and the people, you see, will think L furnished the collation. 

Anyhow, I shall tell the society reporter so. Then, of course, I shall have 
ice-cream. I bought a freezer at a fire sale the other day for ninety-five 
cents, and I am j ust dying to try it. Ice-cream in not an extravagance. Milk 
is cheap, you know, five cents a quart. And as for fruit fl tvor, why, I will 
use jelly. I have figured the whole thing up and it will cost just $17 95. 
Now, my dear Tabitha, I am sure you are laughing in your sleeve at me at 
my poor little attempts of economy. But I am willing to take your valu- 
able advice. I know you must think me extravagant, for $17 95 in these 
times is a large sum of money. When Mrs. Shoddieville brought out Emma 
it only cost her, she told me, $13 40, and she got a splendid send-off in the 
papers. Mr. Blueway was there, and a special bottle was provided for 
his use. She must have got at least two columns of notices all put together. 
Then there was Mrs. Blowberry. To be sure her party was a very quiet af- 
fair, but it was cheap. It cost $9. 50, and the papers all gave notices of the 
'sumptuous repast,' etc." 

I just rose in all my dignity and said: 

"Eliza Anne Parvenu, I am just ashamed 1 know you. You are a 
plain, unvarnished humbug. Don't you dare send me an invitation to 
your tea." 

I just flounced out of the room and slammed the door. I shall never 
call on Eliza Anne again. Tabitha Twiggs

militiamen, when half-starved and wholly ex- 
hausted, were compelled to stand for hours in 
heavy marching order in a broiling Sacramento 
sun and were then handled by their staff com- 
manders more like sheep in a pen than soldiers 
on serious duty. 



CVIDENTLY there is going to be a general 
shaking-up in the militia when all the line 
officers expend their kicks on the staff. Even 
Captain Sam Ruddell, usually as patient under 
misdirection as a hydrant at a fire, is inflamed with 
criticism of the gentlemen in big epaulettes who 
make the California National Guard a byword and 
a reproach throughout the military world. Sam- 
uel forgets his early Sunday-school tuition and 
swears like one of the historic troopers in Flan- 
ders when the tender subject of that retreat from 
the depot is touched. 

"The National Guards should be disbanded at 
once, reorganized on new principles and placed 
under the command of soldiers. No National 
Guard should be under the control of a lot of sau- 
sages or beer-barrels decorated with feathers and 
brass buttons," is Captain Ruddell's Ciesar-like 
and epigrammatic summary of the situation. 



QUITE recently the sale was made public of a 
piece of property on Market street, east of 
City Hall avenue, for about $200,000, and the 
alleged purchaser was a New York capitalist, 
named Frederick Branch. Now I am told that 
the said New Yorker so far from being a capi- 
talist is only a poor relation of the actual buyer 
and that the sale was made ostensibly to him by 
a certain firm of real estate men because the actual 
buyer might have been hauled up for breach of 
contract by another realty firm. The story

entire, instead of at least being divided with the 
agents who negotiated with Mr. Hyman. 



I DON'T share in any way the strictures on the 
Bank of California management. Confidence 
is at the bottom of all business transactions, and 
the fact that this man Melville had never missed 
a day at his desk for years, had always enjoyed 
the confidence of his employers and always cov- 
ered up his tracks, rannot be construed as any re- 
flection upon the bank's management. Melville 
stole until he felt that detection was certain, just 
as Flood robbed the Donohoe-Kelly Bank until 
he was found out. 



/""OGGIN has gone and Chretien, his attorney, 
will be the only gainer. The latter holds 
the power of attorney of both the printer and his 
wife, and it is certain that he will make the best 
terms possible in his own interest. I think he will 
clear up for himself all the way from £6,ooo to 
$10000. As for Goggin, it is quite possible that 
he may not get out of the country as well as he 
expects to do. He was a slick schemer, a Czar to 
those under him, hail-fellow-well-met to those with 
whom he had business and urbane to the last de- 
gree when he needed a favor. His record in Aus- 
tralia, I am told, is quite a breezy one. I think it 
possible that he will be called upon to disgorge 
before he is afloat on the briny and that his con- 
templated trans-Atlantic trip will be postponed. 
He and his grabbing spouse are credited with 
having " salted down " quite a fortune in old Ire- 
land.

before everything moves again in its proper chan-

but I know that he was actually rubbing his hands 
with pleasure at the increased business it had 
brought him, because he reached by water, places

A MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. 

A FRIGHTFUL catastrophe occurred at the 
'* clam chowder party of the " Cycling 
Club " at San Mateo beach, Sunday. When 
the hungry wheelers were about to open 
the clam boiler it exploded as if charged with 
dynamite. It appears that Printer Brunt, who 
generouslyjdonated the $20 worth of clams, wrap- 
ped some of them up in a leaf of the '49 almanac 
out of which he takes anecdotes for lodge nights. 
One of the chestnuts stuck to a clam and when 
the steam got up, the explosion followed as a 
matter of course. Fortunately the joke that 
caused the trouble was not one of Mr. Brunt's 
oldest, so no lives were lost. 



PRETTY LADIES. 



Traveling in the Northern States one is agree- 
ably surprised at the beauty of the ladies. Their 
complexion is so clear and rosy and so free from 
blemishes that it is a pleasure to look at them. 
This is owing to the fact that Wakelee's Camelline 
is used as a proventative of sunburn, freckles and 
roughness of the skin, giving a bloom and fresh- 
ness which makes the plainest face attractive. 
Indorsed by physicians. Sold by all druggists ;

APPLICANT — You are advertising for a re-

own husband will fall in love with her. 



MERIT IS ESSENTIAL. 

Consumers have a habit of determining by ex- 
periment whether an article of food is pure, 
wholesome, convenient and economical. Bor- 
den's Peerless Brand Evaporated Cream possesses 
intrinsic merit. Will stand every test. 



TRAGEDY AT BAR HARBOR. 

' T-WAS an unsalted youth from Marquette 
' Who unpolitely cried, "Shoot the lorg- 
nette ! " 
And the proud Boston girl 
Gave one glance at the churl, 
And he hasn't got over it yette. 



THE LADIES' HAIRDRESSER. 

The most fashionable and elegant ladies' hair- 
dressing establishment in the city is presided over 
by Stanislaus Strozinski, corner of Ellis and Leav- 
enworth streets, under the Mirabeau. Popular 
prices and the best artists give general satisfac- 
tion. Manufacturer of natural curly bangs of orig- 
inal designs. Importer of French toilet articles 
and Parisian novelties. All cars transfer there. 



GO TO GRUENHAGENS'. 

During the summer months when cooling bev- 
erages are luxuries that all enjoy, Gruenhagen & 
Co's exquisitely furnished confectioney establish- 
ment, 20 Kearny street, is the place to enjoy those 
delicious egg drinks which are all the craze in the 
East. Every other novelty in the confectionery 
line can be obtained there. 



THE BLACK PLAGUE. 

The black plague is at Canton. It may be in 
San Francisco, but we have a preventative in Jesse 
Moore's fine old Kentucky Whisky, which tones 
the system, invigorates the nerves and strengthens 
the stomach. Try it and see. 



AN INSTANTANEOUS SUCCESS. 

Why ? Because the general public have made 
it so. The manufacturers knew that all that was 
wanted to make the " Silver Champion Cigar " an 
instantaneous success was to give quality as well 
as quantity.

Delmas & Shortridge have removed their

Taste 

has lost lives. In former 
years people wouldn't take 
Cod-liver Oil on account of 
its bad taste. Now we have 

Scott's 
Emulsion 

the Cream of Cod-liver Oil, 
which is palatable and easier 
on the digestive organs than 
plain oil, besides being more 
effective. Physicians, the world 
over, endorse it. 

Don't be deceived by Substitutes!

CURES QUICKER 

THAN ANY OTHER REMEDY. 

Tarrant's Extract of Cubebs and Copai- 
ba is a safe, certain and quick cure for gon- 
orrhea and gjeet and is an old-tried rem- 
edy for all diseases of the urinary organs- 
Combining in a highly concentrated form 
the medicinal virtues of cubebs and copaiba, 
its portable shape, freedom from taste and 
speedy action (curing in less time than any 
other preparation) make it the most 

valuable known remedy. To 

prevent fraud, see that every package has 
a red strip across the face of label, with 
the signature of Tarrant & Co., N. Y., 
upon it. Price, Sl.OO. 
Sold by all druggists.

PARISIAN DIPLOMACY. 

CTROLLING along Minna street the other after- 
'-' noon I overheard the following characteristic 
coversation between two French women : 

"The Clantys does be slow returnin' phwat 
they borry," said Mrs. Dolan. 

"Yis," replied Mrs. Rafferty, " Oi niver will 
forgit the throuble Oi had gettin' back the flat- 
oirons Oi lint 'em wanst out o' the kindness av 
me heart." 

•'An' how did yez git 'em ?" 

" Oi sint me b'y Teddy to holler out that the 
Clantys wouldn't be in this counthry, on'y St. 
Pathrick chased the snakes out av Oireland. 
Thin the oirons cem over the back fince fasht 
enough. All Tiddy had to do wor' to dodge 'em." 

liTTENRI!" 

' * " Yes, Your Excellency ? " 

"What is your idea of the effect of the sugar 
scandal on the political prospects of the implicated 
Senators ? " 

" I should think, Your Excellency, that they 
would scarcely care to seek re-election." 

" Henri, that is where you make an egregious 
blunder." 

" Indeed?" 

"Yes, Henri. Their connection with sugar 
qualifies them admirably to act as candy dates." 

"THE summer youth for months must toil 
' Amid the mart's mad whirl 
To pass a brief vacation near 
The dainty summer girl. 

And she, enshrined on wooded hill, 
Or by the murmuring ocean, 

Reviews with gracious dignity, 
A pageant of devotion. 

WHEN WEARY AND LANGUID 
USE horsford's acid phosphate. 
When you are weary and languid with the heat 
of summer, and strive in vain to keep cool, and 
your temper also, the use of Horsford's Acid Phos- 
phate will materially aid you.

" Because he frequently goes before the foot-

There is more Catarrh in this section of the 
country than all other diseases put together, and 
until the last few years was supposed to be incur- 
able. For a great many years doctors pronounced 
it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, 
and by constantly failing to cure with local treat- 
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has 
proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and 
therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's 
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & 
Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure 
on the market. It is taken internally in doses 
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly 
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. 
They offer one hundred dollars for any case it 
fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials.

OME imagine that "strikes" are of modern 
origin, the outgrowth of the present civiliza- 
tion, in which Capital and Labor pugilistic- 
ally confront each other. The fact is, 
"strikes" are on the line of the antique. 
Their genesis is traced back to what may be 
called " remotest antiquity." To the mu- 
sicians belong the distinction, enviable or 
otherwise, of inaugurating "strikes." One would 
naturally think that these creators of harmony would 
not lend themselves to the introduction of discords, 
such as would fairly shake the foundations of the prosperity of the nine- 
teenth century. Yet such is the fact. The immortal Livy, in his imper- 
ishable vetses. gives mention of the first historical strike of which we have 
knowledge. It broke out 310 years B. C. among the flute players who 
were employed by the authorities to play in the Temple of Jupiter, at the 
public sacrifices made to the gods. These fluters were denied the privi- 
lege they had long enjoyed of having their repasts in the temple. They 
struck, and followed up their strike by leaving the Eternal City and going 
to Tibur. They were exhorted to return, but declined. They did not in- 
terfere with others taking their place, possibly because every flutist in the 
city went with them. The sacrifices could not be abandoned ; force could 
not be employed to bring the strikers to duty ; arbitration was not thought 
of; strategy solved the problem. Citizens of Tibur were influenced to 
bring the strike to an end. These gentlemen, fertile in expedients, by 
concert of action, invited the striking musicians to their respective homes 
where they so plied them with wine so as to get each flutist drunk. When 
the wine had done its work, the musicians were gathered up and placed in 
wagons and driven in a happy state of unconsciousness to Rome. They 
woke up in the Temple of Jupiter, and after recovering from the fumes of 
the wine they had innocently imbibed, they without protest, such was their 
confusion of face, immediately "tooted" away. Thus was the first strike 

ended. 

* * * 

THE culinary art having seemingly reached perfection in this city — evi- 
denced by the multiplicity of prosperous boarding-houses and restau- 
rants in contradistinction to homes — the question as to the best place to 
feast ought to be easily settled. Let any one, not an expert, attempt 
answering the question, and he will be forced to abandon the question as 
unsolvable. It is a well-known physiological fact, that by the law of 
assimilation what we eat becomes part of us, by entering into our physical 
personality. It is by this process we get material for bone structure, nerve 
tissue, muscle, ligament color to the eye and hair, tone to the voice and, 
for aught we know, stamina to the soul. Blood, it is said, tells the 
story of one's life. If the corpuscles of our blood are determined in quan- 
tity and quality by what we feed upon, then the question of eating becomes 
one of vital moment. Take, by way of illustration, the case of Melville, 
the California Bank clerk now languishing in the city prison. For a series 



of years he has been indulging in costly lunches, ranging from two to six 
dollars. He does not give in his confession the menu which he favored 
nor the name of the particular restaurant he patronized. If his lunches 
had anything to do with his development, the fact that he has turned out 
a thief is significant. If Melville would mike disclosures on this point, it 
might enable bank directors throughout the country to outline the menu 
card which, if followed, would tend to keep their employees honest and 
trustworthy. If the experiment in this direction should ultimate in success, 
the Chief of Police might try it with " the force ;" the people at large with 
the men they elevate by their suffrages to ofH-.ial station in the city, county, 
State and nation. What a fortune would come to the restaurateur who 
could successfully guarantee to his patrons that his bill of fare would de- 
velop all who fed at his establishment into men of strong personality, 
distinguished by sterling honesty, healthy gray matter, clean hands and 
nervy characters, instead of a race of moral dyspeptics, with dudish pro- 
clivities and curvature of the spine. Possibly the twentieth century will 
give birth to some such gastronomic genius. We await his coming with 
feverish expectancy. 

* * * 

DEFORE the meeting of the Democratic General Committee, everyone 
had a suspicion that Max Popper was suffering from a slight attack of 
softening of the brain. His actions and expressions as a political boss 
were very queer. Since his remarkable speech before the General Com- 
mittee last week, when that distinguished congregation of Democratic 
nobodies voted itself perpetual authority, our opinion of Maximillian has 
materially changed. We no longer suspect him ol mere brain fag. He is 
positively insane and should have a guardian appointed. 

* ¥ * 

IT was had enough for Mr. Popper to erect himself on his hind legs and 
argue that because Buckley is a hold, bad intriguer and his wicked 
partner Rainey is, if anything, worse, it was perfectly proper for the General 
Committee, as the custodian of the Democratic conscience and conserva- 
tor of the party's morals, to commit petty larceny by stealing a new lease 
of life. Such sophistry might pass muster as the expression of a newly- 
discharged inmate ol the Stockton Asylum who had not quite regained the 
mental grip necessary to restore confidence in the permanency of his cure. 
When Max went on, however, to garnish his oration by attributing the 
election of Stephen M. White to the U. S. Senate as the direct result of 
Max's ascendency to the vacated throne of Boss Buckley, he put himself 
on record as a raving lunatic of the most malignant stripe. It is a matter of 
immeasurable surprise that one of the policemen in the lobby did not haul 
him before the Lunacy Commissioners and have them certify to the valid- 
ity of his claims on a strait-jacket in the Agnews Asylum for the hopelessly 
insane.

AVE 



C.-ESAR MAXIMUS 
POPPER. 



[Thrice did lie reftue the crown, but each time 

l<c['l a firm grip of the cable attached to it — 

SJmUtfttart ilit-htly eAangat.] 

Why are the footways crowded f 

What tidings have we here f 
Why wave those gaudy banners .' 

Why flows the sharp steam beer ? 
Why do the maids and matrons 

Mingle among the throng ; 
And lictors bid the minstrels 

!- 'fill ft their gayest songt 

What foemen, bowed and shackled. 

Shall pass beneath the yoke ? 
What hosts on the Potrero 

Are shattered and broke f 
Have the tribes on the south of Market 

Their arms now laid down, 
And tribute paid to Ca'sar 

Who wears the double crmvn t 

List to those grim centurions, 

Who stand in the saloon. 
Says Marcus H. Zemansky, 

' ' I wagered ere the moon 
Entered another quarter, 

Maximus Popper would 
Reseize the crown of Caesar, 

Though he should wade through 
blood." 

Cried Andreas Clunnis loudly, 

"Away, thou man of straw I 
Braunhardius will uphold me, 

And Cusickus with his jaw. 
Maximus Popper never, 

Though Bucklius stood behind 
The Democratic sceptre, 

In honest faith resigned." 

Said Lictor Healey softly, 

" Hush ! Ccesar comes this way." 
With calm imperious manner. 

And yet a trifle gay, 
Maximus Popper slowly 

To maid and matron bends, 
And smiling on the lictors. 

The lofty throne ascends. 

" Hail to the Purifier I " 

The vestal virgins cry. 
The lictors bend before him ; 

His glance is stern and high 
Yet ere the pale stars waning, 

The gobltl shall be drained, 
For Popper imperator 

By Bucklius long sustained. 




Now shall the grand old sweeper 

Upon the streets careen. 
And Max's job of draying 

Return again, I ween ; 
And Catalinus Bucklius, 

Whom Maximus has nursed, 
Now bid the parching legions 

To slake their mighty thirst. 



The crown, pot metal gilded, 

Rests lightly on his brow. 
And many a cringing bondsman 

Shall toot his horn now. 
In the shadow of the Forum. 

When the hour is dark and late. 
Shall Maximus Popperinus 

With Chris connubiate. 



Ave, oh imperator ; 

Sweet peace will come again, 
And little jobs Maximus 

Will fall like gentle rain. 
The party's got its leader. 

The king is on the throne, 
And Catalinus Bucklius 

Can call the game his own. 



WAITING. 



"W AIT; 

T bride. 



said the 
She was 
young and fair — 
Fair as a dear, delicious 

rose 
Which, like a recluse in- 
ardent, blows 
Veiled from the sun and 
the grosser air. 

" Wait, for my husband is 
old and gray, 
Bent is his back, and his 

step is slow ; 
Soon he will sleep with 
the e a r t h w o rms 
low. 
Wait, oh, my love, for an- 
other day." 




" Wait," said the wife. She was fair and round. 

" Wait, for the years we lose are few ; 

Yet, we are young, and our world is new, 
But he — he is moving towards the mound." 

" Wait," said the wife. She was hale and red. 

" Wait. Though thy sorrow is plain to see ; 

Time, who hath seasons of joy for thee, 
Striketh his scythe at that old, gray head." 



Over a mound in a graveyard lone, 

Chuckling with glee on the mouldy bed, 
Straddleth a man with an old, gray head 

" Waiting" is writ on the chiseled stone.

discreet about it. 




THE WASP. 



ROUND AND ABOUT. 




LL our genteel and notable round- 
ers are turning their thoughts to 
art. Clifton Talbot has opened a 
studio on the top floor of the Mills 
Building and is engaged on a 
$ 1 0,000 painting of imported 
Trade Wind. Daniel McCarthy, 
Esq., he of the White Hat and the 
auriferous cable pendent from the 
eighth button of his high-cut vest, 
is the official art critic. The suc- 
cess of the painting is, therefore, 
assured. I have heard it said that 
"what Mr. McCarthy doesn't 
know about a horse is not worth 
knowing." I wonder if what 
White Hat's horses know about 
him is worth knowing ? 



» * \A/HAT a lovely white chip hat that was your 
" " wife had on to-day, Bagley ! " 
" Yes, and it took the price of five blue chips to 
pay for it." 



ONALD DE V. GRAHAM, the only and in- 
imitable, has also, I hear with pleasure, gone 
in for high art. Donald's resplendent talents were for a long time de- 
based by a trade alliance with a wholesale liquor house, and when he 
should have been pouring libations to the tender Muses, he was currying 
favor with mammon by selling champagne to the snobocracy and jeunesse 
dore. Of course the Muses took revenge on their recalcitrant votary. 
The artist-singer waxed fat. Oh, so gross ! His wasp-like waist took on 
the convexity of one of his own barrels of rich red wine and the figure of 
Apollo merged into a mild forecast of Falstaff. It is pleasant to hear that 
before too late Mr. Graham has taken to art and a strong leather-belt 
around his waist. Why he wears the belt can only be surmised. A 
strong cinch affects people differently. The civilized man wears it to keep 
his pants up ; the Indian to keep his appetite down. Artists in San Fran- 
cisco, as a rule, follow the aboriginal fashion in belts. Let us hope that 
Mr. Graham, at this early stage of his artistic career, is an exception. 
Still, I have my fears. He is, I learn, the partner of Connie von Whatch- 
ucalem, he of the unfinished picture of Donald and the gaudy gold medal. 



w 

w 



HEN the cooking at a man's house is so poor that he cannot eat, his 
wife pays a dollar for a bottle of medicine to give him an appetite. 



fHITE HAT MCCARTHY has taken a new departure in the naming 
of racehorses. He gives them the patronymics of leading citizens. 
One animal recently named is called " Talbot Clifton " and another " Mo- 
rosco." " You see that animile is so all-fired fast and cuts out sich a pace 
for all the other blood horses I calls him Talbot Clifton," said the horse 
jobber with the white chapeau. "That other anamile has a head three 
inches longer'n anything in the stable, so I names him Morosr.o. That 
feller you see comin' down the track is inclined to kick at everything 
round him. I'm a-goin' to christen him Debs. He always gets left no 
matter what gait the horses strike. See ? " Mr. McCarthy's innovation is 
likely to prove quite popular. 



t iTHERE is such a thing as being entirely too generous," remarked the 
Frisco man whose wife had just presented him with twins. 

T H. WILLIAMS, the popular President of the Jockey Club, is back 
from the Orient, and, happy to relate, vastly improved in health and 
spirits. He looks forward with hopeful anticipation to the opening of the 
fall races at Bay District Track and predicts a meeting which will eclipse 
even the remarkable record of 1893. Mr. Williams is the life arid soul of 
racing on the Pacific Coast and has done more than any other man to 
make the "sport of kings " a success. His many friends will be pleased 
to hear of his return in such excellent shape. 



STUNNING HOSIERY.

No ; 'tis a call to feet.

LLOWING thirty chews a minute and ten hours a day, 
which is the average for a San Francisco girl, a

nearly equal to the achievement of Charley Mitchell.

A TERRIBLE MESS. 

»kJT'S a blessed good thing," 

said Harpham, as he gazed 

on the ocean, " it's a blessed good 

thing the ocean's bottom is solid." 

"Why?" 

" Think of what a mess there'd 
be on the other side of the earth 
if it leaked." 



WICK WIRE — By the way, 
what is Mudge's politics ? 
Yaesley — The last I saw of 
him he had all his money up on 
a 20 to 1 shot, down at the pool- 
room. I shouldn't wonder if he 
is a Populist by this time. 




THE contest ( heaven save the mark ! ) between Frank Allen and Austra- 
lian Barron of the short-haired fraternity which gave a hundred or so 
of spectators a very tired feeling down Colma-way has put a damper on 
local pugilistic managers. I hear that the promoters of this fiasco are 
dickering for another attraction to draw a few shekels to the gin-mills 
along the County road, but I do not contemplate a brilliant success for 
their efforts. They are figuring on a match between Hawkins, the ex- 
featherweight champion of the Pacific Coast, and Bogan, another back 
number of the little pugs. It is safe to say that such an attraction would 
not draw any sensible man across the street if the contest were a free one, 
much less take him all the way down to the borders of San Mateo 
county. After paying all the expenses of the late match, Allen and Bar- 
ron had just about enough left to pay their carfare back. Bogan and 
Hawkins will not have even the carfare.

MR. EDDIE SACHS, who speculates a considerable portion of his lucre 
on horses and pugs, I understand backed Allen to the tune of Si.Soo 
to whip the Australian. Mr. Sachs was muchly elated when he saw Barron 
break his trusty right flipper and frantically urged the ex-teacher of the old 
California Club to go in and scoop the purse and bets. " My own hand is 
disabled, too," groaned the dispirited pug, and although Mr. Sachs tried 
to revive him with offers of half the winnings, the battle ceased. Mr. 
Allen's hand was not so seriously injured, however, as to prevent him 
from writing out an eloquent card for the Post, in which he proclaimed that 
he had entered into a contract with Barron to fake the fight, and hence 
could not win. As he could have made about $750 by bets in winning, 
and got a large dish of soup by losing, it is hard to reconcile his morality 
and arithmetic. Truly, the ways of the modern pug are past finding out.

OTWITHSTANDING the great " boost " given Mr. Curley Brown as a 
starter by certain local sporting scribes, I fear me much his startling 
merits will be overlooked by the Blood Horse Association this fall and 
Starter Ferguson will be allowed to resume the flag at Bay District. In 
fact, this is a fixture. This is really too bad from a newspaper standpoint, 
for Mr. Brown's unique method of starting would furnish a brilliant series 
of surprises and some very excellent " scraps " before the winter was over. 
I sympathize with the scribes who conspired to give him a top round of the 
ladder and Ferguson the bottom one. It was almost as complete a fizzle 
as that recent fiasco on another and larger track — the railroad track. It 
is a bad year for conspiraters of every kind.

THE summer race meeting of the Pacific Coast Trotting Horse Breeders' 
Association, which begins at Bay District to-day and ends on the 
1 ith inst., will be one of the most attractive trotting events ever held on 
the coast. All the noted horses are entered. The betting will be on the 
bookmaking plan, an innovation which is sure to make the meeting a suc- 
cess. The programme is as follows : 

Saturday. August 4th — Two-year olds. 2:40 class, trotting— eleven entries. 2:14 class, pacing — 
seven entries. 2:27 class, trotting — sixteen entries 

Tuesday, August 7th— 2:30 cla's, pacing- fifteen entries. 2:19 class, trotting (nomination)— thir- 
teen entries. 2:40 class, trotting — nine'ecn entries.

i 'WHAT were your motives in voting for that ordinance?" asked the

diating an insulting innuendo, " were the highest I ever acted npon." 



p ENERAL CHARLES T. KELLY, who led the Industrial Army from 
Oakland on the 3d of last April, has returned home without his 
troops, thus following the fashionable example of some of our distinguished 
militia commanders. The country should not lose sight of General Kelly. 
If the LTnited States should ever become involved in a war at a time when 
Congressmen are so thick at the Treasury doors that it would be impos- 
sible for Uncle Sam to reach in and get a handful of " sinews," General 
Kelly will be needed. A man who can start out with nothing and march 
1,200 men across the continent and return home with the same nothing he 
started with would be able to conduct warfare so cheaply that he would 
eventually starve the enemy into unconditional surrender. This achieve- 
ment stands without a parallel and in these pinching times is regarded as 
the true test of good generalship. The nearest approach to it was when 
the lamented General Grant made a tour of the world at an expense made 
nominal by his true greatness. But General Kelly was comparatively un- 
known when he entered upon his memorable march to the nation's Capi- 
tal. He wasn't met by brass bands and titled personages desirous of his 
presence at the speech-end of the banquet table, but by morose, heavy- 
jawed bulldogs and unduly alarmed farmers armed with pitchforks and 
sections of fences. But, like the immortal Eli, " he got there," landing 
his 1,200 tramps safely on the reserve opposite the Capitol. But five men 
died on the long tedious march. The only mistake that marked General 
Kelly's leadership was almost criminal. Through laxiness a doctor was 
permitted to join the ranks and one day he increased the mortality list one 
by administering morphine for quinine to one of the men. It was a griev- 



ous blunder to let such a careless practitioner try his hand on the high 
privates. He should have been detailed to do special duty on the General 
and win a medal for it.

iving and one in San 



A GENTLEMAN stopping at the Palace, who came up from Los Angeles 
yesterday, says that the earthquake shock at that place last Sunday 
evening created great consternation among the timid. There was at least 
one man in the city whose fright suddenly vanished. He was engaged in 
a friendly game of poker at one of the leading saloons when the temblor 
made itself felt. Doors swayed and banged, pyramids of glasses behind 
the bar went down with a crash and a general panic ensued. Dropping 
his hand he excitedly remarked: 

" Boys, you will have to excuse me, that's my wife. When she's on 
the warpath she always slams things around like that." 

"Oh, that's an earthquake," replied one of the players. 

" Is that all? You've no idea how frightened I was," gaily remarked 
the trembling man, as he resumed his hand and bet three dollars on a pair 
of deuces. 



A DDITIONAL furrows mark the classic brows of the matrons of San 
Francisco's female seminaries, and their lot, like the policeman in the 
" Pirates of Penzance," is not a happy one. Belle Baya and her corps of 
Oriental muscle dancers are responsible for turning several of our swell 
s hools into naughty muscular dancing academies, and that is what is wor- 
rying the life out of the average matron, who can be shocked by other 
things than a galvanic battery. Attired in loose-fitting wrappers, the 
demure seminary girls bound, whirl and contort like a small boy who has 
partaken of a green apple, while the other girls sing that doleful Turkish 
nightmare, " Hi-yi, hi-yi, hi-yi, aya alia mamma," and at the conclusion of 
the dance all yell, " Artemie bosie " (Give me a kiss). These young girls 
are our coming society women, and it would make one shudder to think of 
the future, but alas ! the future, so to speak, is already here. The adult 
society belles are themselves as diligently practicing the art of stomachic 
wriggling as their little sisters in the boarding-schools. It would not be 
surprising to have the usual formula of terpsichorean invitation changed 
in San Francisco before long from " Can I have the pleasure of a waltz 
with you, Miss Gotrox?" to "Will you accommodate me, oh, star-eyed 
rival of Belle Baya, with the next muscle dance ? " 



/"■OME to think about it, I don't see why a good, lively stomach wiggle 
should not be as attractive as some of the cotillion figures that pass 
muster and are even applauded. Take, for example, that recent cotillion 
at the seaside where fat Mr. Greenway wobbled down the ball-room with a 
skipping-rope, and several adipose luminaries of society followed to the 
entrancing strains of the Hungarian Band. It would be a very poor muscle 
dance, indeed, given by a society belle in a loose tunic and pendulous gir- 
dle, that would not please me as well as Mr. Greenway and his skipping- 
rope wiggle. It would be less trying, too, for Mr. Greenway might fall 
and the consequences would be terrible to the dancing floor, already waxed 
to the consistency of soaped ice. If the muscle dancer fell — oh, well, that 
wouldn't occasion much comment as things go nowadays in the best 
society. 



THE Bohemians are making extravagant preparations for their high, low, 
jack-and-the-game jinks at Meeker's Grove, Sonoma county, on Aug- 
ust 1 8th. Peter Robertson is the sire of the Gipsy Camp, or high jinks 
headquarters. Peter is the seventh son of a seventh son and will have a 
fortune-telling booth on the smoky side of the camp. He is a little out 
of practice in this art and for this reason will say nothing of the past, but 
will deal exclusively in futures. The chippy dance will constitute the low 
jinks of the fiesta, with Harry Dimond as chief gum-chewer. The pro- 
gramme as arranged is varied and interesting. Connie von Gerrichten 
will sing " Runter Ging McGinty " and " Les Gane Galligher." Joe Red- 
ding, the lawyer-athlete, will execute a Turkish stomach clog-dance, which 
will be followed by a paper by Ed. Willard, entitled, "Why I am a Chris- 
tian." Laurie Bunten, who is six feet seven or seven feet six, will give a 
scene from " Uncle Thomas' Cabin," impersonating Little Eva. Frank 
and Charley Stone will perform on a tin whistle and an accordeon without 
the aid of a net. Louis Sloss is down for a lecture on the " Decadence of 
the Custard Pie." During this turn Uncle George Bromley wili act as 
umpire. George Hall, Count Beauvara and Elmer Depew will present the 
tableau, "The Three Graces." During the tableau, Frank Belcher, 
late of Hallan and Hart's " Later On " Company, will tell how the strike 
cut him off from his company and it is thought that no red fire will be 
needed to complete the scene.

'THE magnetism of " New York Day by Day ' is 
evident at Morosco's Grand Opera House by 
crowded houses nightly. On Monday evening the 
particularly strong attraction will be cffered in the 
shape of the beautiful drama of English rural life 
entitled " The Harvest Moon." 



THE flurry among the barbers who have been 

attending the Harrigan performances at the 

California is over. Actor Wright has cut his hair. 



THE portrait at the head of the column this week 
' is that of Miss Viola Allen, leading lady of 
the Frohman Stock Company. Miss Isabel Irving 
is the blonde beauty of the show. It is unneces- 
sary to say the likenesses are perfect. They were 
made in The Wasp's unequaled photo engraving 
establishment. By the way, The Wasp is the 
only weekly outside New York City that maintains 
a costly photo-engraving establishment. 



THE Grand International Tug-of-War Tourna- 
1 ment occurs at a very opportune time. San 
Francisco has had nothing of this kind for some 
time and, as might be expected, unusual interest 
is being manifested by all who admire this excit- 
ing form of manly sports. Each team will meet 
every other team in the tournament and there are 
to be no ties or draws. Limited and unlimited 
teams pull alternate nights. The capacity of the 
big tent at Central Park will be taxed to its utmost, 
without doubt, until the finish of the contest. 



pHARLES FROHMAN'S Empire Theatre 
^ Stock Company will begin an engagement 
at the Baldwin Monday evening. The first of its 
New York successes to be presented here will be 
Sydney Grundy's great "sex against sex" play, 
"Sowing the Wind," which was the dramatic tri- 
umph of the past New York season. The folly of 
an old man during his younger days furnishes the 
foundation for the story. It will be presented for 
one week only, giving way to " Liberty Hall." 
The Frohman Company is headed by handsome 
Henry Miller and charming Viola Allen. 



MANAGER WALTER has a long list of new 

people to present to the patrons of the Or- 

pheum Monday evening next, among them being 

the celebrated Oriental equilibrist, Sadi-Alfarabi. 



UENRY MILLER makes a new departure in 
1 * his new role at the Baldwin, appearing as 
an old man. No longer the sweet Henry, the 
special pet of the gushing matinee girl. Henry has 
a soul above caramels and despises the gushing 
drama, I learn. He will be an actor-r-r, with the 
accent on the r. 



CTAGE MANAGER— Miss Tattle, can you play 
^ a rich lord ? 

Miss Tattle (enthusiastically) — For all he's 
worth.

1MEXT week the Harrigan Company takes its 
* farewell at the California Theatre. On Mon- 
day, Tuesday and Wednesday nights "Old Lav- 
ender" will be presented. For the remainder of 
the week " Reilly and the 400" will hold the 
boards, bringing to a close a successful engage- 
ment of eight weeks.

*-* lady over there isn't really trying to flirt with 
me.

asking. She's my wife. 



1< THE GYPSY BARON" has entertained large 
' audiences at the Tivoli this week and will 
be the attraction for the forthcoming week. It is 
presented on an elaborate scale, surpassing in 
thoroughness of detail and magnificence of setting 
its former production at this popular house. 
" Don Juan " (ad lib) is in preparation. 



uAH!" remarked the great musician, as he 
^ walked the floor with his howling off- 
spring in his arms ; " it's much easier to compose 
a grand opera than a wakeful baby." 




pHRISTOPHER JUNIOR was to my mind no 
^ a howling success, though beautifully 
mounted and played at the Baldwin. Without 
so popular a chap as John Drew it would be a 
dubious speculation. I wonder how New York 
will take it ? It is being tried on the "jays " be- 
fore it reaches the metropolis like doubtful medi- 
cine on a dog. 

THE author of " Christopher Junior " is Madeline 

Lucette Randolph Riley, wife of comedian 

Riley. She played here with the Duff Company in 

1886. She is a pretty woman. What's in a name ? 




MISS ISABEL IRVING. 



I YDIA YEAMANS draws well at the Orpheum. 
*-' Her husband, Mr. Titus, who plays the piano 
so admirably, is a lineal descendant of Mary- 
Stuart, Queen of Scots. Mary was a lovely piano 
player. 

THE matinee girls are much exercised as to 
* whether John Drew has a glass eye or not. 
They whisper to one another John has. I can tell 
them he has not. 



CRED URBAN, the bluebeard of the profession, 
*■ has taken to himself still another wife — the 
fifth. Heaven save the mark ! She also is not 
without a history. Her mother was a rich German 
lady who married her good-looking blonde coach- 
man. Mrs. Urban, that is, married the brother of 
one of the Mexican Consuls, buried him, married 
the brother and got a divorce ; now she is Fred's 
fifth. Next ! 

THE next German dramatic season at the Bald- 
1 win begins Sunday, August 12th, and extends 
to November 25th — sixteen performances in all. 
Theo. Bollman, one of the most popular German 
actors in America, will be the leading man and 
manager of the company, which he brings with 
him from St. Paul, Minn.

A LITTLE Indian dickey bird has just whispered 
** in my ear the following adventure which re- 
cently befell Mrs. Brown-Potter in Calcutta which 
is, I think, not without humor : Mrs. Brown-Pot- 
ter was given, in Calcutta, a little French poodle- 
dog which was very offensive to the guests of the 
Victoria Hotel, where Mrs. Brown-Potter was 
staying, from a playful habit it had of snapping at 
old gentlemen's legs. One day this little dog at- 
tempted to bite a certain Colonel Browne, who 
promptly licked it, and tied to its tail a notice, 
reading : 

I am Mis. Brown-Poller's litt.e pel dog. Whose pet arc you ? 

And then with a hearty kick, dismissed it into 
the society's actress' boudoir. 

Kyrle Bellew, who is still playing Antony to 
Mrs. Brown-Potter's Cleopatra, was, I learn, per- 
fectly furious. The First-nighter.

A Pertinent Chapter Relative to the Crime 
of Encore. 



By A. Sharp. 



A LMOST invariably when I attend a local con- 
cert I am impressed by the melancholy fact 
that the encore has lost its old-time character. It is 
now a bold and shameless fraud on the public. 
The encore twenty years ago was a rare demon- 
stration of admiration for the extraordinary talent 
of a finished and superior artist ; now it is a torture 
inflicted upon the audience by presumptuous be- 
ginners who are striving to get a little notoriety, 
taking advantage in the easy approval of their in- 
timate friends. Even supposing that the encore 
is really asked spontaneously by a whole audi- 
ence, then the artist very often responds to it in- 
correctly. There are two distinct kinds of encores 
not understood by everybody. One is the persist- 
ent sign of desire to listen again to the perform- 
ance of an artist ; the other, on the contrary, is 
directed to the intrinsic merit of the piece per- 
formed, but there are very few executants that 
would make such a distinction. They all believe 
that the encore is provoked only by their own 
wonderful talent. Accordingly, when the perform- 
ance of a concert is in rehearsal, the encore is the 
most important thing to prepare for. I could give 
a hundred examples, but suffice to cite, for in- 
stance, Rosewald, who played not long ago, in a 
rather commonplace style, a beautiful sonata by 
Handel, at an organ recital given by H. J. Stew- 
art. The audience evidently liked the sonata very 
much and, although played passably well, an en- 
core was demanded. Instead of playing the last 
tempo of the sonata, Rosewald thought the audi- 
ence was inebriated with his poor tone and imper- 
fect intonation and inflicted upon it a new insig- 
nificant thing which made the audience sigh for 
the finale. What is done in this direction by our 
half finished vocalists, violinists and pianists has 
become a nuisance. They give a concert and im- 
plore a number of unlucky people to buy a couple 
of tickets apiece. The remainder of the paste- 
boards are given gratis to the claque, that is, to the 
intimate friends who can be relied on to break 
their canes over the backs of the chairs after 
every number, and vociferously demand encores. 
When the concert takes place the person who has 
paid finds a formidable programme of at least 
fifteen numbers which, alas! become thirty before 
the show is over because the claque has insisted 
upon encores. 



MERO should be cursed just for having given 
precedent to the claque, if not for any other 
diabolic deeds. Very often an artist is such a de 
lusive incapable that even the claque feels indis- 
posed to applaud ; a faint flutter is given then, but 
the great artist jumps out promptly with a very 
high nose and a new piece. Oh, heavens ! When 
there is a fear that the claque will not work persist- 
ently enough the artist will arrange it so as to be 
the recipient of flowers in bunches, bouquets and 
baskets. In this case the reappearance on the 
stage is retarded a little because the ushers are 
there waving the flowers, and the public will surely 
applaud to help them deliver those innocent aids 
to mediocrity. Thus the encore is assured. 

In Europe this encore business is regulated by 
a committee which must give permission for the 
encore. One member of the committee is always 
at hand in a special seat and when the applause 
is insistent the artist turns in the direction of the 
censor. If the sign of consent is given, then the 
encore is accorded. The only remedy to check 



the invading abuse of encores among us is that no 
executant be permitted to prepare a new piece for 
it. I think that this would be a good resolution 
because people would not be so quick to run the 
risk of listening twice to the very same pro- 
gramme. 

It has been suggested by flippant writers that 
the needed reform might be brought about by 
stationing a reliable marksman in the gallery to 
shoot the worst offender on the stage. This has 
the merit of efficiency, but the demerit of extrava- 
gance. Gunpowder costs too much to waste on 
some of our aspiring semi-cultivated musicians.

THE WASP. 



PERSONALITIES. 



THE splendid speech of Hon. M. M. Eslee at 
the Wigwam on Wednesday night was a 
must auspicious opening of the Republican cam- 
paign. He touched many responsive chords by 
his bold proclamation of his position on the great 
questions of the day. His summary of the com- 
mercial catastrophes that have attended the seven- 
teen months of Democratic tinkering with the 
tariff question was a cool, able, dispassionate 
arraignment of the authors of such a great national 
calamity. He pilloried the Populists and their 
crank theories side by side with the Democratic 
malefactors and showed very plainly that both are 
tarred with the same brush. On the question of 
unrestricted immigration he took the right stand. 
America was not specially designed by Providence 
to be the dumping ground for the ignorant and 
criminal of all nations. On the railroad question 
he took all the wind out of the Democratic bel- 
lows which the Examiner has been inflating most 
energetically for months. He boldly proclaimed 
his advocacy of the Government's ownership of 
the railroads. No wonder our esteemed and able 
contemporary editorially pours ice- water down the 
spine of the Republican campaign programme 
in commenting on Mr. Estee's speech by say- 
ing he has burned his bridges and joined the 
Democracy. The figure of speech is slightly in- 
accurate. Mr. Estee has burned bridges, I admit, 
but not to join the Democracy. He has burned 
them in advance of that party, and on the line of 
travel they had carefully marked out. Now if 
they follow, the running streams must be crossed 
without bridges, and riding over a torrent on a 
locomotive without a bridge is precarious work. 
A pontoon or a raft might help matters slightly, 
but the trouble is to manufacture a serviceable 
makeshift of that kind out of rotten sugar-barrel 
staves. I am sure every fair-minded citizen, who 
believes in good government before partisan poli- 
tics, will applaud Mr. Estee's opening speech, and 
unless something altogether unforeseen occurs be- 
fore next November will vote for him and the 
party whose principles are those that aim to insure 
peace, prosperity and progress for the American 
nation.

suddenly ejaculated and turned his back on the 
egg and bacon frier's studio. 

" Vot's der matter mit dot sandervitch ? " asked 
the promoter of midnight indigestion as he stuck 
his head out of his galley. 

" Nothing, only it's got too much t in it," said 
the city editor jerking his thumb in the direction 
of the wagon. 

" Tea mit it! Vot yer give me? No tea mit 
mine sandervitches." 

By this time a crowd of belated newspapermen 
and other conservators of the early morning 
morality of the town had congregated and the bad 
spelling on the sandwich wagon caused derisive 
comments. Other crowds swelled the throng and 
soon five hundred people were holding a spelling 
bee and jeering the excited sandwich butcher. 

The next night a thousand people viewed the 
orthographical atrocity on his studio and he was 
so wild that he couldn't fry an egg the whole 
evening. 

In three days he took to hard drink and at the 
end of the week Sheriff McDade owned the sand-

able good looks. The lady's pedigree as given by

Extract from a Young Lady's Letter. 



THE WASP. 



THE POSTSCRIPT. 




LLE. PAULINE DE 
GLANES had finished 
her shopping in the 
Rue Hausman, 
and was walking slow- 
ly up the shady side 
of the street, in the di- 
rection of her aunt' s 
house in the Champs 
Elysees — her home for 
the next two months — 
when she became 
vaguely conscious that some one — a man — was 
following her. 

Coming out of the fashionable photographer's 
further down the street, where she had gone to 
arrange for a sitting, she had narrowly escaped 
colliding with a frock-coated, shiny-hatted, curly- 
haired young gentleman. In the short interval oc- 
cupied by their mutual apologies she had had time 
to notice first that the boy — for he was really little 
more — had a great deal more than his fair share of 
good looks, and secondly that he was regarding 
her with undisguised admiration. 

Then she had gone on up the street, with an un- 
mistakable blush on her cheeks, and a palpable 
quickening of the pulse beneath her slender 
wrist. She walked with the long graceful swing 
which is as common among the women of the 
stage as it is rare elsewhere. Her skirt, trimmed 
elaborately, but in perfect taste, seemed to move 
of itself in unison with her limbs, rather than be 
carried along by them. From the roses in the 
big hat which crowned her shapely head to the 
pointed toes of her little morocco-leather shoes, 
she looked as charming as you could wish, and 
by the time she had reached No. — , on the Avenue, 
at least half-a-dozen men had fallen hopelessly in 
love with her. 

As she stooped to put her key in the door she 
happened to glance down the avenue. The boy, 
whose appearance had been so forcibly impressed 
on her in the Rue Hausman, was standing at the 
corner gazing intently at her. She blushed violently 
and fumbled energetically at the key, which as luck 
would have it, seemed to have jammed, looked 
up again, impelled by some irresistible attraction, 
and caught the boy's gaze full, blushed still more, 
wrenched furiously at the key, and at last, with a 
desperate effort, turned it and disappeared within. 
The moment the door closed behind her the 
boy advanced rapidly down the street, picked up 
the envelope which, unnoticed by her, had 
dropped from her pocket when she took out the 
key, carefully scrutinized the address, smiled, put 
the envelope into his breast pocket, and, with a 
glance up at the windows of the house as if to im- 
press it on his memory, lounged off down the 
street humming quietly to himself the chorus of 
the latest popular chanson. 

* * * * * * 

" It's shameful ! What sort of woman does 
he think I am ? Oh, how I hate men ! " and Pau- 
line de Glanes' little French shoes beat a con- 
temptuous tattoo on her bedroom carpet, and her 
little hands doubled up into dainty fists, suggest- 
ing that she would like to enter into violent physi- 
cal warfare with the whole of the other sex then 
and there. 

The innocent cause of this outburst lay, sublime- 
ly unconscious of the storm it had aroused, on her 
lap, the creamiest and roughest of creamy rough 
envelopes, addressed in a straggling masculine 
hand, with a corresponding sheet of note-paper 
protruding. Pauline pulled the letter out again, 
and half pouting half crying, read it over for the 
sixth or seventh time. It was dated from the 
Club Olympique, and ran as follows : 

Dear Mile, tie Glaties : P.-irdon the liberty which I, a perfect 
stranger, take in addressing you. Your name and address I dis- 
covered from the envelope you dropped. The only excuse I have 
to offer— if it be an excuse — is that 1 cannot help it. The moment 
I saw you on the Rue Hausman I felt that, come what might, 
I would try to make your acquaintance. Ah ! Mademoiselle, 
you know not how lovely you are. I know that by addressing 



you like this I run the risk of forever forfeiting your esteem and 
perhaps losing sight of you forever. But I cannot help it ; 1 must 
take my Chance, I h, pardon the presumption, but can you find it 
in your heart to permit me to call on you. Of course, I know that 
1 have never been formally introduced to you. but 1 know if you 
will let me call we shall be sure to find that we have lots of mutual 
acquaintances who can arrange a proper introduction 

Yours in despair, Andre dh Saint Avdrhpon. 

Pauline's tatloo on the crrpet continued during 
the reading of the letter, and once or twice a tear 
fell and blurred the words. 

When she came to the boyish sprawling signa- 
ture at the end she got up from her chair and be- 
gan to walk hurriedly up and down the room. 

" It's abominable," she murmured, " to be in- 
sulted like that, abominable ! And he was a gen- 
manly-looking boy, too; couldn't he see I was a 
lady? I am sure" — she went over to the glass 
and gazed anxiously into it — "no; I am sure I 
don't look like that sort of woman — no, not a bit. 
Write to him ? Yes, I will, and at once, too, and 
tell him what I think." 

She sat down at the little buhl escritoire and 
began : 

Avenue Champs Elysees, May, 1894. 
Sir : Your letter has surprised me exceedingly. lam not in 
the habit of receiving such— insulting 

She paused for a word, resting her elbows on 
the table and her chin on her hands. A photo- 
graph of a man — her brother — stood on the escri- 
toire in front of her. She had always considered 
him good-looking. Now somehow, unconscious- 
ly, she began to compare him with the man to 
whom she was writing — to the latter's decided ad- 
vantage. After all, she thought, Olivier was really 
nothing much to look at. She took the frame up 
and scrutinized the picture closely. Now she 
came to consider matters critically. Olivier was not 
very far removed from absolute plainness. His 
nose was really almost a snub, his eyes too small, 
the forehead, the squareness of which she had 
once thought an attraction, seemed to have be- 
come obtrusively aggressive. It looked as if it 
were trying to push its way out of the picture. 
And the hair was uncompromisingly straight and 
flat. It was ridiculous 1 Men with hair like that 
ought to be made to curl it, like girls did. Curly 
hair was so much prettier. Like, for instance 

A faint pink painted her cheeks. She took up 
her pen and set to work at the letter again. 

Sir : Your letter has surprised me exceedingly. I am not in the 
habit of receiving such insulting — communications. 1 only take 
notice of yours at all because 

After all, why was she writing at all ? Wouldn't 

it be far better to take no notice ? Wouldn't 

No, she would write, just to let him know that that 
sort of thing might be done to a chorus-girl — not 
to her, or any woman of her sort. It should be a 
lesson to him for the future. There was no reason 
why a man should treat a woman like that just 
because he had money — everyone in Paris knew 
the St. Aydredons and the old Baron was reputed 
a millionaire many times over. Yes, he certainly 
was handsome, too, this young aristocrat. How 
well he looked in his frock coat and glossy hat ! 
It was all very well to run down men's clothes, 
but they suited some men to perfection. And 
good-looking young men were not too plentiful. 
He had money, too. How lucky some people 
I were to be sure. She must really get her father 
to raise her allowance. As it was, she was always 
in debt. Only that morning Sylvestine had sent 
in her bill for the third time, with a rude little note 
to the effect that it was very much overdue and 
must really be settled at once. And there was 
that delicious little pony Lablache wanted her to 
buy. It certainly was dirt cheap at 1,000 francs. 
But, of course, cheap or not, it was quite out of 
the question. Equally, of course, that horrid Gail- 
lard girl would jump at it. Lablache said that she 
was dying to have it, but he would rather sell it to 
a lady who knew something about horses — like 
herself, naturally — if he could. It was hard to be 
done out of it just for a paltry 1,000 francs. Still 
there was no help for it, and 

Good gracious, six o'clock! She had been half 
an hour over that stupid letter already. It must 
be finished at once. 

She took up her pen again : 

I only take notice of yours because— because it is as well you 
should know that though that sort of thing may do with some 
women, it won't do with me. For the future you had tetter con- 
fine such attentions to 

Chorus-girls ? No ! I don't like that. Besides, 
after all, he's only a boy, and chorus-girls, I know, 



Let 



are awfully expensive. Olivier told me so ! 
me see, ah ! that's it : 

to women who care for that sort of thi ng. I do 

No, of course, I don't ! 

uot. Pauline oe Gla.NI IS. 

The letter was duly blotted and an envelope 
addressed. But instead of folding it up at once, 
Pauline hesitated a moment, bit the end of her 
quill pen, took up first paper, then envelope, and 
put both down again, fidgetted in her chair, rubbed 
one dainty little foot against the other, and finally 
her cheeks, ears, and even her neck suffused with 
blushes, snatched her pen and hurriedly scribbled 
another line. 

It ran thus : 

P. S— If after what I have written you dare to call, please don't 
knock, but ring three limes.

THE WASP. 




" I know a count that's sellin' tomales on Stockton street," suggested 
Mrs. Flirty, and fortunately just as the fight seemed about to start in real 
earnest, Deacon Fluff came in to sample some of our home-made dough- 
nuts, and the. conversation turned on the weather. 

Oh, the deceit of these women. Tabitha Twiggs. 



D MAID 3 



7E just had another lively time 
this week at the Dorcas So- 
ciety's quarterly meeting which we 
always wind up with a lunch — light 
refreshments. Some of the married 
women always want beer, so we re- 
laxed the rules, much against my 
wishes, and admitted a light brand of 
- « . lager. They said it was perfectly 
harmless, but, oh, my ! how it makes those women's tongues wag ! I won- 
der what in the world would happen if they ever got a real strong. stimu- 
lant like rum into them ! 



THEY got started on the subject of hosiery — brown stockings, and how 
well they go with russet shoes now so much worn. I hate all these 
fal-lals and wear good sensible white cotton articles myself, just the same 
as I was brought up, and no other. I asked them right out, "What's the 
difference what color your stockings are, anyhow ? You don't expect to 
show every man on the street your stockings, do you ? " What do you 
think that ridiculous Mrs. Flirty replied ? Well, really, I wouldn't repeat 
it, 'twas so brazen, but to make matters worse, she got right up and raised 
her skirts away above her ankles to show her hosiery. 

"Now, Miss Twiggs," said she, "if you think white stockings look 
just as well as this lovely shade of 
brown, just lift up your dress and I'll 
bet you the ice-cream soda for the 
crowd that they'll decide against 
you." 

I just crushed the creature then 
and there. 

"Madam," said I, "allow me to 
inform you I'm not a racetrack or a 
racehorse that I want to have bets 
made on my legs for ice-cream soda 
or anything else. If I want to put 
any part of my belongings up in com- 
petition, I'd select my brains and not 
my feet, Madam, to bet on." 

The trouble with women like that 
is, they are so silly all that they can 
comprehend is a smirk or a kiss or a 
chapter out of some ridiculous yellow- 
covered French novel. I really don't 
know what the world can be coming 
to when people like Mrs. Flirty raise 
families ; but hers is not very large — 
one little girl and a parrot and two 
canaries. 




MRS. FLIRTY SHOWS HER HOSIERY. 



IXrtRS. HAM, the rich sausage-mak- 
er's wife, started a discussion 
about the Pullman boycott, by asking 
whether anyone had been in the coun- 
try lately. 

Then they got talking of old Pull- 
man's meanness to his son-in-law. 

"Just the nicest young man in the 
city, too, Frank is," said Mrs. Ham, 
"and such a lovely disposition, and 
to think of old Pullman with all his millions giving the boy nothin'." 

"Oh, yes, he did," chipped in Mrs. Flirty, " he gave him his blessing, 
for someone who knows all about it told me so." 

" It's created a lot o' talk among the Four Hundred, you know," 
continued Mrs. Ham, "and we all sympathize with Frank, for, of course, 
we thought for sure old Pullman would give him a million or two to help 
pay his way. A young man with a wife that's heir to an immense fortune 
ought to entertain, and that costs money. I tell you, rich American 
parents in society don't do nothin', as a rule, for their children till they die. 

Now, you betcher boots, when I marry my Marie to a prince " 

" Oh, Mrs. Ham," Mrs. Flirty exclaimed sarcastically, " would you 
marry Marie to a prince ? " 

" I doan know as I would if I could get her a good sensible juke or a 
baron." 



f ' Pi^ST love the gloaming, dearest ? " 

*-' She nestled close to him, 
And with lofty trust that naught could shake, 
Replied: "Yes. Douse the glim."

rover to cover and succeeds in fracturing every 
rule of syntax with an adroitness and positive re- 
iteration characteristic of the gifted author. With 
such a precedent Badlam's history, if not a contri- 
bution to literature, is at least sure to prove an ad- 
mirable ex imple of " don'ts " in the use of the 
English language as spoken in these United States. 
That his deadly animosity will not be tempered by 
his collaboration is, I believe, assured. The ex- 
chief of the Bureau of Publicity and Promotion, 
described (for a consideration) as " one of the fore- 
most brainworkers and thought directors of the 
Pacific Coast," is also known to entertain a dis- 
tinct aversion to the accepted rules of English 
grammar. 




Since bicycle dress reform became so conspicu-

'THE now notorious Martin Will case has been 
the ruling legal sensation of the week. More 
documents have been missed. This is more than 
could be said of the reports of the case in the 
newspapers. The wearied readers would never 
miss them. The public has grown sick and tired 
in California of will contests and labor strikes and 
wants a rest. There ought to be some legal obstruc- 
tion placed against the contest of a rich man's will 
by people not directly and plainly his heirs. As it is 
now, no man can die firm in the conviction that his 
estate will go to those whom he desires to enjoy it. 
Any female battle-ax, no matter what her reputa- 
tion, can make affidavit that the deceased 
capitalist had secret and illicit relations with her 
and claim a share of the estate on the evidence of 
her shame. It has been done successfully so often 
in San Francisco that it has come to be regarded 
as a legalized fraud. I do not say the second 
will in the Martin case is a forgery, but certainly 
if the jury decides it is not worthy of credence, 
some one should be made an example of as a 
warning to the host of perjurers that stand ready 
in San Francisco to swear to any lie in a probate 
ease for a few dirty dollars. 



MRS. JOHN HAYS HAMMOND arrived here 
safely on Tuesday last and was welcomed 
by a host of friends. Mrs. Hammond has for the 
past year been in South Africa with her husband, 
the distinguished mining engineer, now very 
prominent in the eyes of the mining world. Mrs. 
Hammond left Johanessburg to place her children 
in school and learning of the accident to her uncle, 



General N". H. Herrin, President of the Parker 
Hill Mining Company of San Francisco, she pro- 
ceeded here to nurse him through to convalesence. 
Mrs. Hammond was escorted here by her brother, 
Major O. Hammond, and will return to Europe 
in a few weeks. 

I HEAR it whispered in society that the daughter 
of one of our most esteemed and affluent doc- 
tors is engaged to a popular naval lieutenant 
whose name mixes appropriately with that marine 
necessity known as lime-juice. Old salts never 

drink the lime-juice without . Guess it and 

you have the news. How is it these brass-bound 
naval heroes carry off all the prizes ? 



I HEAR that the organist of the Plymouth Congre- 
gational Church created quite a mild sensation 
the other night on the occasion of a fashionable 
wedding by the variety of tunes he rattled off to 
glorify the occasion. The talented musician in 
the midst of an entrancing medley rolled out the 
familiar strains of " Rocka-bye, Baby " and the 
congregation almost audibly snickered. Some one 
nudged the rapt musician and he switched at 
lightning speed to an orthodox and less sugges- 
tive wedding air. The Biographer. 

MEETS THE TIMES. 

Prominent among the first-class restaurants of 
San Francisco is that of Johnson's, 38 Mont- 
gomery street, opposite the Lick House. In con- 
sequence of the reduction in the price of all table 
supplies, Mr. Johnson, with commendable fairness, 
has made a general cut in rates in order that his pa- 
trons may share with him the benefit of these reduc- 
tions. It must be understood that the general ex- 
cellence of the fare and service will in no man- 
ner be affected, but will be kept up to the high 
standard that has made this restaurant famous. 
The reduction is generous enough to make it 
within the reach of all to patronize Johnson's res- 
taurant. 

OF INTEREST TO MUSICIANS. 
Leon I. Stanton & Co., repairers of musical in- 
struments, formerly doing business at No. 9 Third 
street, has been dissolved and a new company 
under the same firm name has been organized as 
successors to William G. Badger. Mr. Stanton is 
the organist of California Commandery of Knights 
Templar and of the Central M. E. Church (Dr. 
Dille's) and is well known in the musical circles 
of this city. The new firm will dispose of the 
remnant of Mr. Badger's old stock at remarkably 
low figures at the old musical establishment, 9 
Third street. A new stock of goods, of the latest 
designs and most approved style of musical goods, 
will be opened at No. 9 Third street in a few days.

\A/ARDEN HALE, of San Quentin, tells a tale on one of his predeces- 
sors (though there are some mean enough to say that the story fits 
his own case exactly). There had been a sort of religious renaissance at 
San nuentin, and all prisoners were compelled to attend chapel regularly, 
no matter what their "convictions." One Saturday a convict came to the 
Warden and said : 

"Can I be allowed to remain away from service on Sundays? It is 
the only day I have to think and write home." 

"What! " exclaimed the outraged Warden, "allow you to pass on 
the services F No, sir ! Why, man, that's part of your penalty." 

And the convict continues to worship regularly, while the Warden 
leads in prayer.

A CERTAIN Front-street commission merchant, who shall for the pres- 
**■ ent be nameless, left town on Tuesday, bound for Vichy Springs. He 
had been wheezing and coughing around the street for a week and de- 
clared that he had the "hay-fever." I met his partner on Friday and 
said : 

" What's the matter with B , anyway ? " 

" Blamed if I know," was the sympathetic reply. " He says it's 

'hay-fever,' but as I see that Mrs S is up at Ukiah, I guess it's more 

of a case of ' grass-widow,' and we'll have to wait to find out."

BOOKS RECEIVED. 

" Told in Whispers," by Leigh H. Irvine, au- 
thor of "The Struggle for Bread," is an attempt 
to solve the industrial problems of the times, by 
picturing in twenty-one chapters a series of events 
in the lives of a village maiden and a young attor- 
ney to whom she is betrothed. 

The maiden, who becomes a heroine, feels the 
touch of poverty, and is confronted with the dis- 
tresses to which the female wage-workers of the 
metropolis are subjected. 

The hero of the story mysteriously disappears 
on the eve of his wedding and subsequently puts 
in a phenomenal appearance. The couple are 
finally mated. The development of the story 
takes the reader into the heart of the battle be- 
tween Capital and Labor, during which it is evi- 
denced that anarchy has no remedy for existing 
evils. Under the tuition of his wife, the young 
lawyer blossoms out as a socialist in the best 
.sense, and being elected to Congress introduces 
and advocates the passage of a bill on socialistic 
lines, which has the promise of being the panacea 
for all the evils and the adjuster of all the differ- 
ences between Capital and Labor. The scheme 
is for the Government to take possession of the 
Colorado desert in Southern California and by 
irrigation redeem the land, build cities, develop 
industries under governmental patronage, etc. 
The book is well written and exceedingly suggest- 
ive. Published by the Crown Publishing Com- 
pany, 10 Astor Place, New York. 

" The Disappearance of Mr. Derwent, a Mys- 
tery," by Thomas Cobb, is a story of pleasing 
character and unexpected finale. The situations 
are well pictured. Mr. Derwent's disappearance 
proves to be a baffling mystery and when revealed 
upsets the average reader's speculations. The 
outcome is a marriage, which is the only event 
the early chapters foreshadow. The story will 
prove entertaining. 

Published by F. J. Neely, Chicago and New 
York.

" Weep not for me my dearest dear ; 

I am not dead, but sleeping here. 

Repent, my love, before you die, 

For you must come and sleep with I." 

" I will not weep, my dearest life.

is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi-

Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a 
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is 
taken internally, acting directly on the blood and 
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby destroyins 
the foundation of the disease, and giving the 
patient strength by building up the constitution 
and assisting nature in doing its work. The pro-

that it fails to cure. Send for list of Testimonials.

HE WASP'S double-page cartoon this week 
deals with the opening of the campaign. 
It is an interesting and suggestive picture. 
The first gun has been fired by the Repub- 
licans, who are handling a serviceable look- 
ing field-piece that throws solid shot. Can- 
noneer Estee has one of the missies under 
his arm and is evidently about to ram it 
home and score another bullseye on the 
target of Public Opinion. The active 
leaders of the Republican organization 
are doing yoemen's duty round the fiald- 
piece. All of which is about as true to 
the life as can be represented in a figura- 
tive political cartoon. 

* * * 

IN striking contrast to the Republican 
battery is the Democratic gathering on 
the left of The Wasp's cartoon. The cannon is a bulky Sugar Trust barrel 
with the Senate brand on it. The gunners are not up to date. Their de- 
fective old field- piece is not in position to open fire and the excited battery 
is pulling and hauling to get into action and use some of the ammunition 
before the Republicans can fire off all the shots. 

* * * 

THE consternation depicted on the faces of the leading Democrats as 
they see Estee and his crowd using up the ammunition they thought 
was exclusively their own is ludicrous and instructive. It gives a lively idea 
of the state of mind of the local Democratic leaders who have been nicely 
caught napping. They evidently thought that the Republicans had made 
a great mistake by beginning to fire away ammunition so early in the day, 
but it never occurred to them that the very shots and shells they depended 
most on to swell their score would be appropriated boldly by the rival 
marksmen. The cartoon is a laughable one viewed from the standpoint of 
any independent voter. It depicts a laughable situation as it really is. 

* * * 

TWO young ladies of this city have solved the problem as to why so 
many young men of to-day are bald-headed. Their reasons do not 
harmonize and yet flood the question with light. The reason assigned by 
the first of the above-mentioned discerners of the signs of the times is, that 
nature abhors a vacuum, and that the hair roots that ought to develop 
naturally are overcome in their upward and outward tendency by stronger in- 
fluences from within, and in obedience thereto, turn inward and become, like 
the moss found in the " deep tangled wild wood," netted and bunched so 
as to fill the place of what is called in other craniums " gray matter." 
This view is somewhat sarcastic and will not be generally accepted by the 
young men of the age. The other young lady claims that bald heads 
among the young gentlemen of the closing century is a result readily trace- 
able to a well defined cause. She says the " Muse " has much to do with 
the scant covering of masculine heads. Young men, so she affirms, easily 



and repeatedly fall in love, and invariably while in this condition attempt 
to express the emotion of their diminutive souls in magnetic verse. In 
other words, they begin poetizing. The effort is too much for them. It 
kills the germ roollets of their Adonis-like locks and in a brief period they 
are bald. Female poets are not thus afflicted — at least, they do not appear 
in public with their craniums in an undressed condition like billiard balls. 
All masculine poets are not characterized by loss of hair, for some of them 
have long locks, like uncombed seaweed, with corresponding attachments. 
The young ladies, quoted above, do not attempt remedying things. They 
say they simply diagnose a condition and solve a problem. 

* * * 

THE Society for the Prevention of Vice has been asking lawyers all week, 
" Where it is at ?" A new way has been discovered for spreading ob- 
scene literature, a way far more attractive to those who relish that sort of 
intellectual food than either lewd books or paintings, and yet it is beyond 
the pale of the law. An enterprising agent for phonographs has had a 
number of cylinders prepared, both of naughty narratives and dialogues, 
and is reeling them off to patrons daily at so much " a listen." It has been 
ascertained by the society's officers that not alone do the fast young men 
and members of the bald-head row patronize the phonographs that tell 
spicy stories, but that females are also allowed to " listen " upon making 
their desire to do so known. The legal lights say the retailing of the 
stories by machinery cannot be called literature and hence the phonograph 
man is going ahead and asking the Prevention of Vice people what they 

are going to do about it. 

* * * 

/"\NE of our enterprising contemporaries has published an entrancing ro- 
mance about the lady who shot Congressman Foley of Nevada. A 
reporter — a Sacramento reporter at that — examined her palm a year be- 
fore the tragedy and foretold from the lines of her hand that a tragedy was 
in store for her. Nothing so wonderful in that. A simple friend of ours 
once went to a palmist in a scoffing spirit, and asked the palmist to dis- 
cover anything he had had for dinner that day. The oracle carefully ex- 
amined his palm, gave a couple of unobtrusive sniffs, and said quietly, 
"Onions." Our acquaintance was quite astonished at the discernment 
shown till he got home, when his wife, who is no palmist to speak of, 
called his attention to the fact during the kiss of welcome. The chief ex- 
pertness of the average palmist is in the ability to palm unlawful fees ; but 
as long as fashionable women have got money to waste, they may as well 
be swindled out of it in this way as in any other.

THE CHINA AND JAPAN WAR. 

A FTER reading columns and columns of reports in the daily press con- 

cerning the present trouble between China and Japan, the weary 

reader lays down his paper, scratches his head and wonders what it is all 

about. Like in most other matters, he awaits the arrival of his favorite 

weekly paper, knowing full well that it will clearly set forth the facts in a 

manner easy of comprehension. In order not to fall into the errors of its 

esteemed daily contemporaries, The Wasp has gone to considerable 

trouble to get at the bottom of facts. Last Friday, 

zf ^0^ Wing Chung Lung, who keeps a dressed-pup 

* *\Jp /ft"* market on Dupont street, and who is accredited 

/ N \**«^ wun Dem & in close touch with the Pekin govern- 

J">5" ^^ &* ment, was interviewed. He was asked whether 

-^ tj> Jt Corea was the bone of contention between China 

"U^X ^ ^y* and Japan. Laying aside a fine, juicy St. Ber- 

pJ5t __.» nard from which he was enticing the intricate 

I C aj^t internal mechanism, Mr. Lung re-coiled his cue 

wing chlng lung's bemarks and made the accompanying remarks which were 

phonographically reported as per Exhibit A on side. It will be seen that 

Mr. Lung's statement differs materially from what has been published in 

the dailies and the readers of The Wasp may depend upon it that Mr. 

Lung knows precisely what he is talking about. 



iiCTHELINDA, darling," murmured the enraptured 
California Tennis Club young man, "this is the 
happiest moment of my life. I came here this 
evening, hoping, yet fearing. I could not put it 
off any longer. I felt that I must know my fate. 
The suspense was killing me. But now — I 
swear it by this lovely head resting so confid- 
ingly on my shoulder, by the kiss on you sweet 

lip S| J But what was that clicking noise I 

heard just then? " 

" Nothing, Walter ; nothing but papa. He's a law- 
yer, you know, but he amuses himself with all sorts 
of queer fads. He's practicing on us with his detec- 
tive camera. Go on, Walter, dear. What were you 
about to say ? " 

O E sold his horse and bought a wheel, 

And now how he does swear ! 
He says he'd rather feed that thing

THE SUMMER GIRL. 

THE summer girl's so beautiful she whirls our 
brain with dizziness, 

A bard who tries to sing her grace, he doesn't 
know his business ; 

For her transcendant loveliness, ineffable, un- 
guessable, 

It cheapens any poet's phase, for it is inexpress- 
ible. 

But, then, the spring and winter girl, so far as 
it's discover'ble, 

Is just as sweet and beautiful, and just as fair 
and lovable ; 

Spring, summer, autumn winter girls — they have 
the ceaseless knack 

Of being just as beautiful through all the alma- 
nac. 



A touching legend of the Tenderloin District 
runs thus : List to it. There was a rich 

man once, with $ 1,000 in his pocket, 

which he hadn't won betting in the ,°L.jf 

pool-rooms at Colma, diamonds in * £j; 

his shirt front and a chronometer in 

his pocket. He stayed in a saloon 

till closing up time, a little the worse 

for his night's sport. He asked the proprietor to 

let him linger till daylight, expressing fear of 

robbery should he venture upon the public thoroughfare in his inability to 

protect himself. A policeman, who had hung about the scene all night 

with a tender solicitude for the man's condition, said to him coaxingly : 
" Come, my good man, I'll take you home and protect you." 
"You!" hiccoughed the rich man with delightful frankness, " why,

DACES between bicycle riders and trotting-horse enthusiasts are becom- 
ing a source of great pleasure to these gentlemen in Golden Gate 
Park. Sometimes there is a hitch in the race and the hitch falls on the 
neck of the horseman, as occurred the other day when George Helm, the 




rifle champion, was racing Leon Thomas, the Ward McAllister of the 
wheeling world. It was nip and tuck down the roadway opposite the 
Fair entrance when suddenly the policeman's lariat fell on the shooting 
king's twenty-two-inch collar and the excitement for the spectators ended. 
It just began for Mr. Helm, but he got off on the old gag that his horse 
" took the bit in his mouth and ran away." He won't do it very soon 
again.

I HAVE it that we are to be visited next month by a circus from the East 
and if after its departure some of our society circus people turn up 
missing it will not be surprising. However, I am glad the circus is coming. 
I love to gaze upon the feeble circus lemonade and then drift into the 
ladies' dressing-room and find the girls sitting on horse buckets darning 

their tights and d ng the management. It affords me boundless joy to 

see the modern Sampson kick his ninety- pound wife clear outside the guy 
ropes for asking the boss canvasman for a cigarette. It thrills me with 
pleasure to witness the old lady with attenuated limbs riding around the 
arena on a freckled horse, directing the attention of the audience to a hole 
in the canvas with her big toe. Then it is restful to go home and rumi- 
nate on how the man got the little ball out from under the shell when you 
saw him put it there. No matter how poor the circus, it makes us all feel 
young again. 



JUDGE JAMES E. MURPHY came down by steamer from Crescent 
City, Del Norte county, last Monday, and, after purchasing a large 
quantity of wire netting to be shipped to his home, he proceeded to Sacra- 
mento, where he has been appointed by Governor Markham to hear a 
motion for a new trial in the McLaughlin case. While conversing with 
him at the Grand he imparted to me the information that he was making 
arrangments to engage in a new industry, which is nothing less than a 
coyotery. He will begin on a small scale, having ordered only one lady 
and one gentleman coyote. 

"Our county," said the Judge enthusiastically, "is paying a bounty of 
two dollars and fifty cents on coyote scalps, and some of them are scarcely 
worth filing. It is my intention to produce gilt-edge scalps, sugar-cured 



and free from dandruff. Coyotes are more profitable than sheep, when 
you consider that the former do not have the scab and a band of three 
hundred can live through the winter on a dray-horse and a snowbank. A 
female coyote, whose bump of conjugal love is properly developed, will 
produce ten coyotelettes a year, if the weather is auspicious. A ewe can't 
do this and attend to her other duties. Oh, there's millions in it ! "

THE victory of the Sappho in the San Francisco Yacht Club race was a 

great triumph of amateur navigation. Ex-Commodore W. A. McCarthy 
sailed the Sappho. At one time it looked as if the roomy old Frolic would 
beat him so strong was the gale. The Rover also had a good chance, but 
at the critical point in rounding the windward stakeboat the ex-Commodore 
outgeneraled his rivals. 

" Beer away three points to starboard ! " he yelled. 

" Dere vos only two points, sir, Fort Point and Black Point, sir," re- 
plied the forty-dollar-a-month Viking, who acts as boatkeeper. 

"D n a Norweigian anyhow ! " roared the ex- Commodore ; "you 

can't get anything into his head without a marlin-spike." 

The ex-Commodore was slightly in error, however, for the Norweigian 
promply realized that there are other points in a yacht race than those laid 
down on the nautical chart, and he got two schooners of extra-sharp beer

into his head without any surgical operation. The rest of the crew followed 
suit. In an instant a spinnaker boom was run out of the maintop gallant 
hatchway, a balloon jib was rigged to the mizzen capstan halyard, and, 
with every sail set, the Sappho capered round the windward buoy like 
a Tivoli chorister after getting a note from the bald-headed row, and won 
the race as if the last lap had been greased. Our spirited illustration (taken 
on the spot) shows the ex-Commodore rounding the windward stakeboat.

■The portrait at the head of the column this week 
' is that of Miss Laura Gilvray, the talented 
leading lady who will appear at the California 
Theatre next week in that most exquisite of so- 
ciety comedies, " Lady Windermere's Fan." 

A MERICAN audiences have established an im- 
** aginary line that defines the limits of the 
conventional and conducts to the very edge of the 
precipice, Risque, Now and then, with great com- 
punction and liberal objurgation, they accept of a 
drama, or more likely a comedy, which just, 
metaphorically speaking of course, steps one little 
step o'er the border line. Then they quiet their 
conscience by the soothing phrase, " Adapted 
from the French." An English play they require 
to be kept strictly within bounds. 



"THE only disappointment in the cast was Will- 
' iam Faversham as Ned Annersley. He 
walked through his part like a crushed tragedian. 
He expressed emotion and poignant grief by 
standing on his tip-toes, and delivered his lines with 
a "prunes and prisms" mouth, articulating his 
words like an elocution teacher. 



A LWAYS careful of the feelings and morals of 
"■ his audiences, Charles Frohman announced 
in advance that " Sowing the Wind " was " strictly 
moral "and not to be mentioned in the same 
breath with such dreadful compositions as the 
" Second Mrs. Tanqueray," for example. Thus 
assured, a large audience assembled at the Bald- 
win on Monday night, ready to be morally amused 
and instructed. 



THE perfect work of Charles Frohman's Empire 
* Stock Company at the Baldwin this week in 
"Sowing the Wind" is enthusiastically com- 
mended. Monday "Liberty Hall" will be pre- 
sented. This is a more powerful drama than 
"Sowing the Wind" and better measures the 
artistic resources of the company.

August 1 3th. The story is fascinatingly interest- 
ing and the plot reasonable and consistent. 

unOROTHY," a bright and showy three-act 
*-^ comic opera, supplants " The Gypsy

incited by the announcement that two new clever 
artists, Mary Thomson and John J. Raffael, are 
included in the cast and will appear for the first 
time at this house on Monday night. 



DURLINGAME did not turn out to welcome the 
'-' Empire Company as it regularly did for John 
Drew ; but in spite of this serious drawback, the 
theatre boasted of a large and select audience, 
The jeunese dore was conspicuous by its absence,

1UST the twist of the pen, the careful wording of 
J a phrase, has saved " Sowing the Wind " 
from slipping off and down the precipice. It is a 
strong play, with a strong human motive and 
calls, with discretion and tact, though a spade, a 
spade. The first two acts are raiher slow, but the 
third is strong and full of human interest and the 
fourth serves a greater purpose than merely to 
wind up the complications of the play.

A LTOGETHER the concert given for the bene- 
fit of Madam Bianchi was a good one, con- 
sidering that it is not the season now for concerts ; 
but too many cooks spoil the broth, and it might 
have been an excellent one if so many amateurs 
had not been asked to take part in it. In fact, 
artists like Miss Ida Valerga, Mr. G. Panizza, Mr. 
J. Marquardt, Mr. N. Mansfeldt, Mr. S. Martinez 
and Mr. L. Schmidt, Sr., should not have been 
mixed up with unfinished students to impede the 
absolute success. The only exception among the 
amateurs was Mrs. Lyman J. Mowry, who has "a 
splendid dramatic soprano voice, resonant and 
clear as a bell, and phrases in good style, although 
sometimes she gives certain color to her notes 
which is not the proper one. Anyway, the lady 
needs more serious study to reach the desired re- 
sult. 

Everybody regretted that Miss Ida Valerga did 
not sing a solo, because the beauty of her singing 
would have shone without any drawbacks. She 
sang the inspired duet from " Gioconda " with a 
young lady who, oi course, cannot stand the com- 
parison, consequently one was a detriment to the 
other in a totally diverging way. Miss Valerga 
ought to be heard oftener in public. 

Artists of merit, however, are, in San Francisco, 
generally at a disadvantage. Musical intriguers 
like Rosejar, Vitriol & Co. are the people who 
rake in the easily- earned dollars. There are sev- 
eral excellent teachers in San Francisco with good 
stage experience, but our poor deluded students 
think that they have to learn it bel canto from some 
one who knows nothing about it, like that Pata- 
yonian who, wishing to study mining, was assay- 
ing ores with Chinamen, 

The instrumental part of the Bianchi concert 
was up to a high standard. Mr. J. Marquardt, 
the violinist, performed a "romanza" by Vieux- 
temps with captivating tenderness and a Spanish 
dance by Sarasate with exquisite technic and 
verve. Mr. H. Mansfeldt distinguished himself 
as usual, playing an intricate valse by Tausig, 
showing his rare mechanical skill over the key- 
board. Another artist that deserves sincere 
praise is Mr. S. Martinez, who acted as accom- 
panist, and I do not know who could pretend to 
be his rival, in our city, in this very difficult 
branch of the art. The concert began with the 
overture " Raymond," by Thomas, performed by 
an orchestra gathered for the occasion under the 
baton of Mr. L Schmidt, and certainly it was a 
surprise to hear such a good body of sound, homo- 
geneous ensemble and variety of accents. It 
proved that we have good musicians in town and 
if they only could be appreciated and encouraged, 
instead of being discarded for a pack of intriguers 
and charlatans, the musical art in San Francisco 
could reach a high degree of excellence. 



THE interesting monthly magazine, Music, edited 
in Chicago, had not long ago an article on 
" Modern Italian Composers," doing entire justice 
to them, especially in regard to Sgambati and 
Martucci. It is about time that also in San Fran- 
cisco certain mistaken ideas, certain unjust preju- 
dices, certain incorrect statements circulated 
against musical Italy of to-day should cease. A 
true artist should learn to appreciate the beautiful 
wherever it is found without prejudice of race or 
nationality, remembering that no "pigmies will 
ever succeed in arresting the ascending parabola 
which irradiates from the sun of Art." 



'THE Indicator, of Chicago, is another bright 

musical paper animated by the desire of 

earnestly helping music and musicians. In its 



issue of July 19th a paragraph from these columns 
about the want of critical acumen in the musical 
department of our newspapers is quoted. While 
I am flattered to see my article reproduced in that 
esteemed periodical, it would be very consoling 
if my words could find an echo in the editorial 
rooms of our dailies and weeklies. Why should 
they not when they tend to elevate our musical, 
nay, artistic standard ? I could show a number 
of congratulatory letters from eminent local mu- 
sicians thanking me and encouraging me to con- 
tinue exposing charlatans and recognize only true 
merit. It is not vanity that prompts this declara- 
tion in my own behalf, but the desire to impress 
more upon our local editors that a reform in the mu- 
sical department is absolutely imperative. Only 
thorough and conscientious musicians should be 
employed as critics, musicians that may teach the 
masses to love art not as an amusement, not as a 
mere ornament, not as a resource for any in- 
triguers, barefaced impostors or sycophants, but 
for its humanizing and ennobling energy, for its 
power of making men better by arousing in them 
a poetical sentiment. Material splendor or pros- 
perity is not enough to reach the true goal ; it is 
only by moral greatness, by ideas, by works of 
imagination that a population can conquer the 
future of genuine art, consequently the pinnacle 
of the highest civilization.

PERSONALITIES. 



IWIR. EDWARD FAY, for ten years keeper of the Grand Hotel bar, has 
been pounced upon by his creditors. When the news reaches Pitts- 
burg one man there will smile and say, "Good enough." He is a highly 
respected citizen of the smoky town, but when he came to San Francisco 
not many months ago he had the misfortune to run across a poker game 
that flew up and hit him hard. That game was presided over by Edward, 
who knows poker as an Arab knows his steed. Mr. Fay let the Pittsburg man 
win the conventional number of times and then he let loose and took in all 
of his hard-earned coin that there happened to be in sight. There was no 
other game that the Pittsburger knew and he was regarded by Ned as a 
plucked bird, but on the chance of there being something more in his clothes 
that would enrich some of the hangers-on around the back-rooms, the Pitts- 
burg man was turned over to them. They made themselves very agree- 
able to him and would have hung on a long time, but what seemed to be his 
last dollar was passed into their hands and they reported to Ned : 

"There ain't nothin' more to be got out o' that feller. He don't take 
no more hints when the girls say they're all spittin' cotton." 

And yet one skillful worker stayed by the victim and was thought to 
have gotten another dollar out of him after all. By this time all the Pitts- 
burg vows of temperance had been wholly forgotten and the man was so 
tiresomely reiterant of his plea to be sent to bed that he was accommodated, 
and in one of the back rooms he slept off his folly. He awoke late next 
morning. Where were his clothes ? He had put them on a chair, but they 
had vanished. He called in a grim Chinese servant and asked him to 
make a search. The search was a long one. No clothes could be found. 
The Pittsburger stayed in bed another hour and then urged the Chinaman 
to renewed effort. Down under a lot of rubbish in an ash-barrel the Mon- 
golian finally found a pair of trousers. 

" Thank Heaven ! " cried the bed-exiled one. " Give me a knife." 

The Chinese thought the poor man had gone daft and was going to 
kill himself. He had seen poker victims before. But instead of applying 
the blade to his throat, the man from Pittsburg applied it to the waistband 
of his trousers. Forth from the waistband he took a big roll of bills — 
$ 2,000. 

"It's all here," he cried gleefully. "They thought they'd got it all, 
but I fooled 'em." • 

Then he borrowed an old coat and vest and got out of the place as 
if he were running from a fire. 

Ned heard the story and his head bowed upon his breast. Never had 
his pride been so sadly hurt as now. " To think," he said, brokenly and 
dejectedly, "two thousand — had it in his inside pocket — easy man, too — 
and I — I guess I'm no good any more. Gettin' too old for this business. 
Too old — my time's past — no good any more." Tears started from his 
eyes. He threw him self upon a card table and wept bitterly — a broken

THE Burlingame Club's races at Monterey promise to be the occasion of 
a great society display. The Country Club's shoot has lost its draw- 
ing power since Annie Laurie wrote it up with so much vitriol in her ink- 
stand, and the ladies of the upper crust no longer parade their best gowns 
at the bleeding sacrifice of a lot of harmless pigeons. The Burlingame 
races are more in the line of " ole country sport, you know," especially as 
a hot steeplechase is on the programme. Talbot Clifton will ride his fam-

/"• ENERAL DIMOND has about finished his official report on the militia 
operations at Sacramento. Owing to the very peculiar, and by no 
means well-received, communication of His Excellency Governor Mark- 
ham on the subject of the militia, the report of General Dimond is looked 
for with the keenest interest. From what is known of the General as a 
fair-minded gentleman, the report is expected to deal with the important 
questions of responsibility for the Sacramento fiasco in a dispassionate, in- 
telligent and convincing manner. It is just as well to reserve criticisms on 
the affair until all the testimony is in and that can only be done when the 
Major-General has filed his report. The Biographer.

r* OOD Bishop Nicholls of the Episcopal Church, 
^-* who recently paid a pastoral visit to his dio- 
cese of Northern California, tells the following 
veracious story, detailing how he dumbfounded a 
blasphemous young Englishman irom one of the 
English colonies, in which Placer county abounds : 
It appears that at Sacramento a young English- 
man, slightly the worse for liquor, got on to the 
train, and while walking down the parlor car, 
slipped on an orange-peel and fell almost at the 
Bishop's feet, incontinently ejaculating several 
" damme's " and even worse epithets. On getting 
up he recognized the Bishop and immediately 
broke forth into profuse apologies, saying : 

"I beg your pardon, my lord, for swearing; it 
was very wrong of me, but the fact is, I like, 
don't-cher-know, to call a spade a spade." 

"Why, cert'nly," replied the Bishop; "but 
why don't you call it a b , dy shovel while 
you're about it ? "

f ANE BROWN is the name of the 
mother of the girl I have beer 
chaperoning. The father's name is 
John. The girl's name is Janette, at 
least, so she says. Since Janette came 
out last winter Mrs. Brown has thrown 
away all her old visiting cards. They 
ran : " Mrs. John Brown." The new 
? batch reads: "Mrs. J. Chauncey 

Browne." Chauncey ! But that is neither here nor there. 

Jane got bad news from Maine the other day. Her old aunt Maria, 
who brought her up. was sick unto death and Jane decided to go to her 
bedside and ease her last few hours. Maria is worth a srnig bit. Before 
she went, Jane came to me and said : 

" TaBitha, dear old friend, I've come to ask you a great favor. I'm 
going right on to Maine to remain with aunt Maria until the last. I can 
not leave Janette heie all alone. Will you, during my absence, come up 
to the house and act as her chaperon ? She is an extremely good girl and 
will give you no trouble. 1 would like you to take her to the cotillion and' 
a few times to the theatre. The season is quiet now and I do not believe 
I shall be gone long." 

Jane and I were always very good friends and I did not want to seem 
disobliging and Janette looked such a weak little creature with her soft 
blue eyes and her fluffy golden hair brushed back from the smooth low 
brow and parted in the middle- in that sweet womanly way. 

Jane left and I went to stop at the big honse on the hill to chaperon 
Janette. 



JW1 Y first day at the big house was awful. I could not amuse the girl and she 
simply horrified me. She spent some four hours arranging her hair, 
and then about two hours reading. Then she got up and spent an hour 
with her eyebrows. Then another selecting the dress she was to wear in 
the evening. Then she hugged her little dog and looked out of the win- 
dow. I could stand it no longer. I told her how sinful St was to waste time 
and she said : 

" Don't be cross, you dear old Tabitha, let's dfscass books. Tell me 
have you read ' The Yellow Faster ? ' ' The Heavenly Grins ?' " 

I- admitted I had not, but felt I should like to -hear about them. Well, 
you should have heard the pack of rubbish sh£ lold me about a girl, 
Evadne, who never used words less than three Syllables long and who 
reasoned in a fashion I simply could not understand. Evadne made jne 
yawn. Then she gave me a fashionable cbooE"to read, "A Little Game 
with Destiny." It was awful. I asserted " : myself ; I burnt that book. I 
could smell sulphur as it burned. 



UVENING came and with it a young man. He wore his hair like 
Janette, only instead of being fluffy it was satiny smooth. He took 
us to the theatre. I am — well, never mind how old — but I had never 
heard of such things. I was blushing all r over. And Janette ? She was 
just as cool as the traditional cucumber. ^Her.face was just as white and 
fresh, and mine it was boiling and Ted as a boiled lobster. Janette calmly 
followed the play'; and when the woman on :the -- stage began ;to undress, 
yes actually to undress, the young man watched Janette. After that hor- 
rible scene-was over I shuddered. The young man chuckled and Janette 
said: 

" What a dreadfully ugly yellow nightgown ! How stupid ! She will 
scare her husband." 

After the play young " Longhair" asked if we would not take " some- 
thing," and he took us to a place where you sit at a counter. We got 
some frothy stuff to drink with a chunk of creanvtn it and it froze me clean 
through. I drearht of my aunt Mira all night which I always do when 
something disagrees with me. 

THE night of the cotillion came. Janette just looked lovely in spite of 
all the stuff she had daubed on her face. As we were going down 

she said to me : 

"Now, Tabitha, I am going tojget you some nice old gentleman v/ho 

will take you in to play cards while I dance, or if you would rather, I'll in-" 

troduce you to some nice old dear ladles who know all the latest scandal,: 

and you'll enjoy yourself immensely. :Now won't that be nice ? " 

"My dear," I said with dignity, "your mother gave you in my 

charge. I am neither a gambler nor a scandal-monger. I am 

chaperon." 



" So are the others chaperons," pertly asserted the young Miss. 

And the saddest part of all was the girl was right. All the chaperons 
were fat. They wore decollete gowns, immense diamonds and took their 
scandal with their poker chips. They never looked at their young charges, 
who could more than look after themselves. 



[ SAT all by myself on the side of that ball-room, watching Janette. I 
winked at her, I beckoned with my fan, I shook my head at her, but 
to no avail. She just smiled sweetly back at me and went on laughing 
and flirting, first with one narrow-chested, spindle-legged, long-haired fel- 
low and then another. I was glad when the evening was at an end. My 
neck was tired from cranning it to look after her. My eyes smarted from 
rolling them and my head ached from suppressed excitement. Janette 
came up to me, calm and cool as ever, looking as fresh and lovely as a 
rosebud. 

" I'm tired," she said, "let's go." 

At my door she dabbed her lips against my cheek and said : 

." Tabitha dear, you mean to do right, but you do not understand. 
You are painfully good and conscientious, my dear, but you are not a suc- 
cess as a chaperon." 

If Jane Brown does not come home soon I shill do something des- 
perate. Tabitha Twiggs.

ls-ip KEA?* 




THE Martin case has developed nothing new 
this week that alters public opinion as to the 
merits of the alleged second will. It will be inter- 
esting to learn what the jury will do on such flimsy 
testimony as that adduced to prove Henry Martin 
as Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. 



THE furniture and briva-brac of 101S Market 
street has been selling at public auction dur- 
ing the week. There is a history attached to 
to 1 8 — aye, a hundred histories. Yet the rooms 
were full of well-dressed ladies during the pro- 
tracted auction and the articles sold at astonish- 
ingly high prices. One swell lady carried off in 
triumph for $25 a chandelier for the reception- 
room of her mansion on Van Ness avenue. An- 
other purchased for $15 a chromo representing 
four sour apples and a mug of beer, said to have 
been painted by either Murillo or Michael Angelo 
— in reality the product of Jabez Swan's talented 
brush when serving his early apprenticeship at 
decoraling back-yard fences. I wonder what the 
proud owners of these treasures will tell their so- 
ciety friends if they admire them and ask where 
they were bought. Also, I wonder what some of 
the gentlemen friends will think if they should 
recognize them — an event not all unlikely. 



QUITE a tremor has been caused on the fringe 
of society by D. Banjo P k's denial of 

his engagement to Miss S o. Oh, Dan, why 

did you ? After it had got into the papers, too ! 



DLANCHE BATES, a charming California 
actress, abandoned the stage to become the 
wife of a Lieutenant at the Presidio not so very 
long ago and the ladies of that aristocrati : locality 
held up their hands in holy horror and closed their 
hearts and doors to the fair Blanche. Becoming 
dissatisfied with being socially ostracized and ex- 
isting on one hundred dollars a month and army 
rations, Blanche failed to respond at roll call the 
other morning and it develops that she deserted 
the ranks to return to her old love — the stage — 
and is now rehearsing in New York for a winter 
engagement. The social atmosphere at the Pre- 
sidio is thus restored to its former purity, and as 
the ladies complacently sip their tea they remark, 
with a knowing wink, " I told you so." 



COCIETY north and south of Market street is 
wondering why the wedding of Jimmy 

D -y, the young millionaire, and Miss W 

has been postponed so many times and oft. I 
can officially announce it is off for good. 



THERE is a shocking story afloat to the effect 
that the peerless Mr. Chambliss was the guest 
of a fish dealer's family a few days ago and it has 
prompted society to hold its nose and deliberately 
go off into spasms. Sausage it can stand, but 
fish — fish which smell to the heavens — are not 
considered in the swim. They have been weighed 
in their own scales and found wanting. As grave 



as Mr. Chambliss' offence may appear at first 
glance, an excuse is found for his outrageous con- 
duct in the fact that his long service in the mer- 
cantile marine makes tar and fish to his olfactory 
organs as delightfully sweet as ottar of roses. To 
avoid precipitating the long-talked-of duet between 
Mr. Chambliss and Mr Greenway, it is proper to 
slate that the latter did not start this awful story, 
but if he regrets its circulation he weeps in privacy.

OF INTEREST TO HORSEMEN. 
Dr. A. E. Buzard, who, as a thoroughly reliable 
veterinary surgeon, enjoys an excellent reputation 
all over the Coast, has taken possession of his new 
office and pharmacy at 28 Golden Gate avenue, 
adjoining the Golden Gate Stables. The Doctor 
has been eminently successful in his practice and 
is indorsed by prominent horsemen everywhere. 
The fact that there is scarcely a day that the Doc- 
tor is not consulted by leading veterinary surgeons 
from all parts of the State, is in itself a high testi- 
monial of the Doctor's professional standing. At- 
tenion is given to the cure of dogs as well as horses, 
and with equal success. Dr. Buzard, who is a 
member of the Royal College of Veterinary Sur- 
geons, London, England, is as popular in social 
life as in his profession. 

GO TO GRUENHAGENS'. 
During the summer months when cooling bev- 
erages are luxuries that all enjoy, Gruenhagen &

ment, 20 Kearny street, is the place to enjoy those 
delicious egg drinks which are all the craze in the 
East. Every other novelty in the confectionery 
line can be obtained there.

THE THIRD MA IE. 
jy^R. CHAMBLISS of cotillions, 

Would-be owner often millions, 
Has been giving testimony 

In the noted Martin case. 
He was called upon to answer 
If as " leader," and as dancer. 
He had not tried to wind up 
Henry Martin in the maze. 

His profession, he admitted, 

Was not just the thing that fitted 

The Four Hundred, who have loved him 

And have brightened up his fate. 
He's a " mariner," so he stated, 
And acknowledged he was rated 
On the ship's book as a sailor 

With the title of " Third Mate." 

He lives high — in the eighth story 
Of the Palace, which is glory 
Quite enough for any mariner 

Who's rated rather low. 
He's a writer for the papers ; 
Writes a book ; does other capers ; 
He's a " leader " in " society " 

And never very slow. 

It's too bad — this testimony, 
Which will make it rather stony 
In the path of Mr. Chambliss 

'Mongst the chosen and elect. 
Had he not been sworn to answer 
Truthfully, this fair young prancer 
Might have claimed to be an Admiral 

And struck a great effect. 

The Dude. 

THE CREAMERY BRANCHING OUT. 

The phenomenal success and popularity of the 
Creamery, one of the best conducted restaurants 
in the city, has made it necessary for the enter- 
prising proprietors, Messrs. Young & Weisman, to 
seek more commodious quarters, hence they will 
remove next Monday from No. 719 Market street 
to No. 725 (History Building), two doors above 
their present location. The old stand in which 
they have in a short year built up a trade of such 
wonderful magnitude by personally superintend- 
ing even the minutia: of the concern, is no longer 
adequate to meet the demands of their extensive 
business, and the change is made that they may 
better and more satisfactorily serve the public. 

With the removal of the Creamery a pleasing 
innovation will be inaugurated by its enterprising 
proprietors that will be welcomed with delight 
even by their present well-satisfied patrons. Steak, 
chops, fish and game will be added to the bill of 
fare, which is to be made more elaborate in every 
respect. Then again, a specialty is to be made of 
fine chicken tomales. 

Another new and important feature which will 
be highly enjoyed is a first-class orchestra which 
will discourse the sweetest of music day and night. 
The new home of the Creamery will be sumptu- 
ously furnished and will possess every comfort 
and convenience that the most exacting could de- 
sire. It is a safe prediction that the Creamery will 
break its present excellent record this coming year 
if the same energetic managers remain at the 
helm. 

The original Creamery, opposite the Baldwin, 
is still flourishing under Messrs. Young & Weis- 
man's successful management.

HOW TO DETECT COUNTERFEIT TICKETS 

The public should take notice that all genuine 
Original Little Louisiana Company's tickets have 
a watermark in the paper which reads Original 
Little Louisiana. The Original Little Beneficen- 
cia Publica Company of San Francisco also has a 
watermark which reads O. L. B. P. CO, 

The above watermarks, which are milled in the 
paper, can be plainly seen by holding the tickets 
up to the light before purchasing same. 

The following letter speaks for itself : 

Big Pine, July 21, 1S94. 

Messfs. Metzgek & Franklin, San Francisco, Cal— Gentle, 
men: The 19th inst., per express, we received $3,750 for one-quar- 
ter ticket No. 79,991 of June drawing. On account of blockade, 
great doubt was expressed by many and also bets were freely 
made that not one cent will we get. I generally made up a pool 
monthly I could not pacify these parties that were interested in 
that winn'ng ticket, as no reply from you nor from Wells-Fargo 
Bank came to my dispatches- Your telegram I have pasted up in 
my store here and the O. L. L. Co. of San Francisco is now adver- 
tised the full length ar.d brea th in this val.ey, as all the country 
papers made mention of it. 

Being that the money came in my own n me and four persons be- 
ing interested in the winning, you wi I greatly favor me by not 
having my name published as the sole winner. The part es who 
received each $937.50 are : Mrs. S. Williams, Mrs. Steve Gregg, 
Ramon Mechardo, Louis Jo eph. Yours truly, 

Louis Joseph. 

Charles Schlessinger, bookkeeper with Bauer 
Bros., Nos. 547 and 549 Market street, San Fran- 
cisco, held the remaining quarter of the above 
ticket, No. 79991, for which he received $3,750 
at the office of Metzger & Franklin, No. 35 New 
Montgomery street, San Francisco.

^ kin wore the pants, and now I am sure of it.

tion. Manufacturer of natural curly bangs of orig-

' 1 \Xf HAT'S all dis kickin' about arbitration ? " 
* * asked one man of another on a car 
which was headed for the Haight-street Grounds. 
"Well, ye see it's a kick for decisions, see? 
Dey tink dat if de gov'ment goes in an' umpires

WHAT WAS NECESSARY. 

Surveyor- General Green — Although a 
stranger to me, I am very favorably impressed 
with you ; but before I can consider your applica- 
tion for a position in my office, you will have to 
submit to me substantial proofs that you are not a 
relative of mine. My Democratic friends insist 
upon this qualification. 



A TRIFLE ANXIOUS. 

LIE — I had a queer dream about you last night, 
* * Miss Oakland. I was about to give you a 
kiss when suddenly we were separated by the bay. 
Miss Oakland — And had the boats stopped 
running? 

i 1 OASN'T she wonderful dreamy eyes ? " 

" " Y-a-a-s," replied Willie Wibbles, " she 
has, indeed. Lawst evening when I called on her 
she could ha'hdly keep fwom going to sleep wight 
in my pwesence." 



i iTHE Yellow Aster " faded is, 

' " Dodo " is out of sight, 
" The Heavenly Twins " have sailed away 
On " Ships That Pass in the Night." 



MRS. HOUSEHOLDER— The iceman didn't 
'** call this morning. 

Cook — Yes, ma'am, he did. There is a pud- 
dle on the doorsteps. 



THE call for sawdust from the dressing 
^ Room came like a storm ; 
And they knew then that the spectacle 
Was at last assuming form. 



H 



E — Her heart is as hard as glass, 
make any impression on it. 
She — Have you tried a diamond ?

fore a certificate of the absolute purity of the Gail 
Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk.- 



1T is claimed that Coxeyism has cost the United

K you want to taste an oyster 

Fresh from its briny bed.

BREAKFAST— SUPPER. 

"Bya thorough knowledge of the natural laws which govern the 
operations of digestion and nutrition, and by a careful application 
of the fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps has pro- 
vided for our breakfast and supper a delicately flavoured beverage, 
which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judi- 
cious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradual- 
ly built up until strong enough to resist eveiy tendency to disease. 
Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack 
wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many a fatal 
shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a 
properly nourished frame." — Civil Service Gazette.

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn 
that there is at least one dreaded disease that sci- 
ence has been able to cure in all its stages and that 
is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi- 
tive cure now known to the medical fraternity. 
Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a 
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is 
taken internally, acting directly on the blood and 
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby destroyins 
the foundation of the disease, and giving the 
patient strength by building up the constitution 
and assisting nature in doing its work. The pro- 
prietors have so much faith in its curative powers, 
that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any cas» 
that it fails to cure. Send for list of Testimonials.

I N no other country is the theatre so popular as 
* in Spain. A true Spanish home is so dull 
that men and women alike scarcely ever spend an 
evening in their inner circle. They go to the 
theatre as much to see their friends and gossip as 
to see the play. Even the children love the drama. 
Spanish children are little old men and women 
and a fairy pantomime would be too dull for them.

SPECIAL NOTICE. 
City subscribers who fail to receive their paper promptly on Saturday morning will please 
notify the Publication Office, Nucleus Building. 

HE divines are preaching on the wickedness at the 
seaside to congregations made up of those who are 
unable for financial and other reasons to take a 
vacation and loll on the sandy beach and sport in 
the surf. Possibly there is some wickedness at the 
seaside resorts, but there is just as much anywhere 
else and often one does not have to look beyond a 
church choir, or the good pastor himself, to detect 
sinfulness. Bathing in itself is not a sin and scanti- 
ness of costume is pardonable in these pinching 
times. If the ladies, who it cannot be denied are 
the principal patrons of the church, should adopt more liberal bathing-suits, 
the extra expense would show itself when the collection-plate was passed 
around in a manner not altogether satisfactory to the pastor. William Cullen 
Bryant, the American philospher, is on record as having said: " He who 
in the love of Nature holds communion with her visible forces she speaks 
a varied language." Now, it is indubitably true that the man who goes to 
the seaside, goes on account of the promptings of his love of Nature. The 
love may differ in degree and kind, but it figures in the matter conspicu- 
ously.

"THE war between China and Japan has advertised the fact that Japanese 
editors are much like their American brethren. They were not born 
with the divine gift of silence. On the slightest excuse they make the 
welkin ring with their criticisms. Their boldness of comment on great 
questions is said to be due to the fact that each paper retains a special 
editor to "do time " in jail. When the publisher has said a little too 
much in his paper, and is called upon to explain, he simply sends up his 
deputy to go through the depressing formality of six months' hard labor, 
and then returns to his erratic ways. It sort of gives a man a free hand 
on a laige scale when he knows that somebody else is going to suffer for 

the editorial indiscretion.

■THE new United States Minister to R ussia, Hon. Clifton R. Brecken- 
ridge, bears a remarkably strong resemblance to Governor Markham. 
He is less silent than the Governor and there is nothing on the surface to 
indicate that he has the traits of Wicked William of Kentucky. 

* * * 

j\j O matter what station a man may hold in life, the grass does not get a 
good start on his grave before rumors are rife that he led a dual life. 
Not many years ago a man could not have anything good said of him un- 
til after his death, but things have changed, and now if he wishes to pre- 
serve his good name it is necessary for him to live. At the Worden trial 
at Woodland, Mrs Van Huzen testified a few days ago that she was the 
promised wife of Sam Clark, the heroic engineer who went down to death 
in the performance of his duty during the recent strike. This admission 
under oath created quite a sensation. There now appears on the troubled 
horizon Mrs. Celia P. Lewis of Benicia, who earnestly avers that she, too, 
was engaged to the deceased engineer, although the announcement is a 



little tardy. As the object of their affections is, perhaps, better off than 
he would be with either of them, a sense of propriety would suggest thai 
they relinquish their claims, if they ever had any, and sensibly calm their 
mouths. 



1 * I ET us next turn our attention," 

Said the Tehama delegate, 
" To the all important question, 
Had we better irrigate ? " 
" Betcher life ! " then came the chorus, 

As each delegate winked his eye, 
And the crowd all struck a bee line 
For the saloon nearest by.

IF it is really the desire of Congress to help the 
country it should continue to go right along 
doing nothing. A Democratic Congressman is 
perfectly harmless while not voting or making a 
speech. There is much satisfaction in knowing 
that it is "sizzing'' hot in Washington and our 
misrepresentatives are having a taste of what they 
may expect in the future. 




A H, what a wild chorus was that ! 

It caused strong men to flee ; 
Each sang, " I am a Democrat," 

But in a different key. 



A LL the leading hotels in the city should speedily make arrangements for 
serving pie at breakfast. The country delegates to the Democratic 
State Convention are commencing to arrive.

THE Superior Judges of San Francisco are busily occupied in manufac-

Dangerfield of an applicant for citizenship the other day. " Yes," replied 
the applicant. " If I maka da shicken tamale out a da 'Mericano eagle I 
go a da jail thirty days, maybe." He received his final papers and stepped 
forth a Populist.

THE anti-anarchist bill passed by the Senate a few days ago will serve 
every purpose except that which was designed. The first section pro- 
vides that no alien anarchist shall be permitted to land in the United States, 
but this provision shall not be so construed as to exclude political refugees. 
As all anarchists who arrive in this country are political refugees, the Sen- 
ators might as well have gone on sleeping in their seats as to waste time 
in passing a bill that has no more merit than a laundry list.

worn.

ROUND AND ABOUT. 



TTORNEY FRANK M. STONE 
has returned from the wilds of 
Trinity county and is posing as 
a hero before his numerous ad- 
mirers. He is a fearless and 
successful hunter and makes 
no effort to conceal the fact. 
As evidence of his skill Mr. 
Stone is exhibiting to his 
friends, with pride, the four 
paws of a monster bear and a 
picture of them has even been 
given in one of the San Fran- 
cisco dailies. Mr. Stone 
planned to spend his vacation 
in the Coos Bay country in 
Oregon, but the strikers tied up 
his train at Red Bluff and he 
struck out by team for Trinity county, camping with an old farmer 
near Hay Fork. There is no denying that large game there is plentiful, 
so plentiful in fact that Mr. Stone seldom ventured beyond the pre- 
cincts of the corral. One day he took a notion that he needed more exer- 
cise than what loitering round the house and drinking buttermilk afforded, 
and he wandered down to the meadow and volunteered to drive the mow- 
ing-machine a few times around the field for his host. Mounting the seat 
of the machine, the attorney proceeded to make hay while the sun shone 
and the old farmer started for the spring to get a jug of water. While 
driving close to a thicket of brush, the attorney was horrified to see a large 
bear rush forth and give chase. Around the field rushed the frightened 
horses and still more frightened attorney, with the bear gaining steadily on 
them at every jump. The hot breath of bruin was scorching the back of 
the neck of Mr. Stone when the horses made a sudden turn and the bear 
found himself in front of the sickle-bar. In less time than it takes to tell it 
the bear's paws were cut off, slick and clean, by the keen blades, and his 
bearship ran away on his bloody stumps, bellowing with pain. Gathering 
up the paws the proud Nimrod hastened toward the house and was soon 
engaged in packing up his traps, preparatory to starting for the city to para- 
lyze his friends with occular proof of his skill as a hunter.

home is on Jackson street, away out. 

"You have made a mistake, Mr. Getsum," answered Miss Stocks, 
coolly. "You are outclassed and beyond your limit. I am worth one

A DEACON BESMIRCHED. 



Mrs. John Martin Empties Her Slop Bucket on Deacon L. H. Clement of the First Congregational Church. 

The notorious Martin case has developed several new sensations this week. Crittenden Thornton, one of the counsel of Mrs. John Martin, got up 
in court and retired publicly and in indignation from the malodorous lawsuit. This is only what might be expected from an attorney like Mr. Thornton, 
who has the pride of ancestry and the consciousness of education and probity. That a battle-axe like Mrs. Martin should accuse Mr. Thornton in the 
gross style she has done is only natural, and that Mr. Thornton should act like a gentleman and throw the harridan overboard is but proper and commend- 
able. Of course, a small country lawyer like Johnson took a different view of the matter. This is also what might be expected. Despite all that the 
papers have said about Mr. Johnson, I cannot see where his surpassing merit comes in. I can find a dozen undistinguished legal fledglings in the army of 
unemployed barristers in San Francisco who could do as much if the reporters only stood in with them. Any shyster can be technical. It is the easiest 
of all legal tricks. 

Our illustration depicts Mrs. Martin emptying her slop-bucket on Deacon L. H. Clement, of the First Congregational Church, a worthy old hypocrite 
on whom she made war to keep her hand in. Mr. Clement has admitted to the Church that he plays poker for money. I have seen him playing the 
horse-races as hard as any of the boys. I have no doubt other incidents of his dual existence could be dug up. 



" By the way, I have something funny to tell you. It is what I call a 
stunner in the way of human gall." 

" Let me hear it by all means," I said, eagerly. 

" Well, you know," he began, "like all banks who do a heavy com- 
mercial business, we have a regular collection clerk. He is a bright and 
industrious young man of thirty and has been in our employ seven years. 
He receives a salary of one hundred and forty dollars a month. The other 
day he came to me and made the astounding request of a raise to two 
hundred dollars a month. I looked at him, wondering if he had gone 
daft from overwork. 

" ' You must be out of your head,' I said. ' Better take a couple of 
weeks' vacation.' 

" ' On the contrary,' he returned, ' my head never was clearer. I 
think I am entitled to two hundred dollars a month. It's little enough. 
Harry Melville, who occupied a similar position in another bank, drew 
$34,000 in advance, for which he will have to work about seven years. 
This makes his salary $4,857 a year, or about four hundred and five dol- 
lars a month. Besides, he gets board, lodging and clothes free of charge 
during his service. You will see by this showing and by looking at matters 
in a practical way that my demand is a very modest one. I agree to 
board, lodge and clothe myself on less than half of what Mr. Melville drew 
in advance. What do you think of it ? ' 

" So soon as I had recovered my lost breath I replied : ' I think, Mr. 

, that I will have your books experted immediately.' And I did. 

The young man's accounts were all right, however, and he is still working 
as collection clerk at one hundred and forty dollars a month." 



t i 'VK/HO'S your friend ? " asked Edelman, as his companion paused 
" " and raised his hat to a lady on Kearny street. 
"That isn'c a friend," said Overwed, absent-mindedly ; "that's my 
wife." 



A STREET INCIDENT. 

THE MAIDEN. 

THE maid went tripping across the street. 
' Quite freely displaying the russets neat, 
That covered the daintiest of dainty feet. 
Just then the watering cart came by 
And drenched the crossing that erst was dry. 
And the maiden stopped and exclaimed. " Oh, my ! ' 

THE MAN. 

A man to the crossing came and he 

At the patent leathers gazed ruefully, 

That had cost, at the very least, a V. 

Then he felt the passion within him start, 

As he looked at the heavily sprinkled part 

Of the street, and he cried, " that cart ! " 

THE MAIDEN. 

The maiden looked at the man and said, 
As a ravishing smile her face o'erspread, 
And she lifted her skirts and resumed her walk 
Acrossing the crossing, " That's the talk ! "

from all the capitals of Europe would lead one to 
infer as much. The ladies will be interested to

elry to the value of a quarter of a million dollars. 
A strong company is announced to appear with

/"VSCAR WILDE has given society many a hard 
*-^ rap. I will never forgive him for exposing 
its monstrous faults, its overweening vanities and 
microscopic virtues in his great social satire, 
" Lady Windermere's Fan." To quote from the 
play, " that damned thing called society " has 
not adopted for its creed the principle of returning 
good for evil. Its dried up little heart and nar- 
row little brain cries for vengeance, and its silly 
little prayer that went up from its still sillier little 
lips has at last been granted. 

I T is generally conceded that an author feels for 
' the product of his brain the same tender sym- 
pathy and soulful love that a parent experiences 
for his offspring, and that to know it has been foully 
dealt with causes pain untold. Suffering is ad- 
mitted to be penance for one's sins. Wilde has 
sinned much, so the gossips tell us. The pro- 
duction of his play at the California this week 
leaves him, in proportion to his penance, a sin- 
ning margin. The sinner is ultimately damned. 
Society has been avenged. 

MRS. ERLYNNE is naturally a part that must 
''* have tempted many a good saleslady to quit 
the counter and adopt the stage. Her easy 
elegance and ready retort, intermingled with in- 
termittent gusts of passion and occasional reveal- 
ings of heart, is sure to appeal to every aspirant for 
dramatic honors. Miss Olive L. Oliver essayed 
the role of Mrs. Erlynne. Society owes a great 
deal to California. Its glorious climate produced

ing. The first series of Nash's living pictures will 
be given in conjunction, completing a bill of un- 
usual excellence. The week of August 20th will 
be a memorable one for the Tivoli and its patrons. 



THERE is unusual interested manifested in musi- 
' cal circles over the violin recital which is to 
be given at Metropolitan Hall, Tuesday evening, 
August 2 1 st, by Costia Doomcheff, the world- 
known violin virtuoso, 1 3 years of age, called the 
small Paganini. The young artist has been ten- 
dered grand ovations everywhere, not on account 
of his youthfulness but exclusively, because his 
playing is superb. He possesses a wonderful mu- 
sical memory and plays long selections readily 
and with a finish and feeling truly entrancing.

THERE is a strange current against Italian art ; 
that is to say, envy and jealously are the 
motors ; narrowminded musicians the operators, 
and ignoramuses receive the shock. An eclectic 
artist must admit the supremacy of modern Italy, 
not only in the operatic field, but also in the sym- 
phonic and for the pianistic literature. In Europe, 
and especially in Germany and England, the 
names of Bazzini, Sgambati, Martucci, Franchetti, 
Miceli, Longo*, Palumbo, Catalani, Pirani, Coro- 
naro, Puzzi-Peccia, Westerhout, Bolzoni, Manci- 
nelli and others shine with an undisputed aureole 
of success. The public and critics of Lon- 
don, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg and 
Brussels are united in chanting a hymn of praise 
for those new Titans of Art. It is only in San 
Francisco that you may enter a music store ask- 
ing for a piece of music, for instance by Martucci, 
and find a clerk that answers with the prosopo- 
poeia of a great man and the stolid face of a 
Greenlander : 

"Martucci! Who is he?" 



IT looks as if musicians were in earnest to organ- 
ize themselves as a society which will be called 
" The California Music Teachers' Association," 
having as principal aim to protect their interests 
against the increasing number of nullities and in- 
triguers who are running down teaching prices and 
impeding, with their pernicious ignorance, the 
healthy development of the public taste for gen- 
uine art. Such being the aim, this incipient society 
should meet the approval of all and annihilate thus 
the rampant hydra. 



DUT who will be admitted into the new society ? 
Only musicians with at least ten years' ex- 
perience and able to present substantial docu- 
ments of their knowledge should be admitted. 
Be it understood that " The California Music 
Teachers' Association " will inspire confidence 
and gain the public favor only if based on severest 
principles. Let us hope that it will not be the 
new means for a few to achieve a little notoriety 
and importance. 



T 



Theatre-goers most admire that part of the 
play which calls for silence on the part of the 
man with the " umpah " horn. 



HE aristocracy of pianists in the East is now 
agitating the question of touch in piano play- 
ing, provoked by the assertion made by Dr. Lang, 
tending to demonstrate that the tone of a piano 
cannot be altered by any pianist. With few ex- 
ceptions, it seems to me that they have taken the 
thesis in a too material if not absolutely wrong 
way. Anyhow, no pianist, in the thorough sense 
of the word, will agree with Mr. Lang. Of 
course, everybody knows that it is not possible 
for anyone to change the material sound of a 
pianoforte, for instance, into a trumpet-like sound, 
but the propagation of the sounding waves may 
be modified by the manner in which the percus- 
sion is made on the keyboard to set in motion the 
hammer striking the strings with an amount of 
elasticity which decides at once the quality of 
sound. Indeed, it is a difficult art, that one of 
touch. Touch means phrasing, which is obtained 
by a fourth of perfect mechanism and three-fourths 
of feeling. An artistic hand will produce a round, 
velvet-like, telling quality of tone ; but on- the con- 
trary, an acrobatic hand will merely produce a 
hollow, piercing, thin and angular tone. 

Also the question of coaxing poetical tones by 
"gliding," "pressing" or "caressing" is not 



THE WASP. 



properly understood by some of the musicians 
that have taken part in the discussion. Admitting 
that the .esthetic rendition of a piece (I am speak- 
ing only of a master of the keyboard) is merely 
caused by the power of sentiment which vibrates 
the nervous system of the performer, the "glid- 
ing " of the hand over the ivories, the " coaxing," 
"pressing" or "caressing" may become for cer- 
tain persons an absolute necessity to facilitate the 
percussion and produce the artistic result, to which 
also concurs the proper treatment of the pedals. 



("* REENWAV, corresponding with a daily pa- 
per from San Rafael, remarked that •' the 
monotony " of that resort was " broken by the ap- 
pearance of a darkey who had a remarkable voice 
and who was kept singing for an hour or more " 
and that " a collection was taken up and the negro 
went away rejoicing and promising to return." 
Well, 1 declare, in all this I see only a would-be 
society leader, who is struck by what " society " 
would call vulgarity ; but as it is only about music 
that I have to speak, I will observe that Greenway 
should not put in such evidence the confounded 
bad taste of his clique. 



/~\N the sixth of next month the Misses Heine, 
sisters of our distinguished cellist, Louis 
Heine, will appear at the concert which will be 
given by the Loring Club. It is said that both 
young ladies are finished artists, consequently their 
performance will awaken considerable interest. 
They are instrumentalists, the elder being a violin- 
ist and the younger a pianist. 



MR, H. J. STEWART is arranging for a series 
of organ recitals, six in number, to be held 
at the First Unitarian Church, commencing on 
Saturday afternoon, September 29th. Mr. Stew- 
art will be assisted by some of the best resident 
artists, including Mr. John Marquardt, late solo 
violinist and concert-master of the Vienna Prater 
orchestra ; Mr. Thomas Rickard, basso ; Miss 
Anna M. Wood, contralto ; Mr. F. K. Tobin, 
trombone soloist ; Mrs. Bermingham, contralto, 
and others whose names will be shortly an- 
nounced. The concerts are to be given under 
the auspices of the Society for Christian Work 
connected with the First Unitarian Church. 



A RUMOR is current that Mr. Abbey has en- 
gaged Rubenstein for an American tour. 
Let us hope that he will come to the Pacific shore, 
although I doubt the truth of the report, Ruben- 
stein having refused, not long ago, a blank check 
to go to England, mainly on the ground that he 
was frightened by the ninety-minutes' Channel 
passage. It is hardly likely, therefore, that Mr. 
Abbey will ever be able to induce him to under- 
take the far longer trip to our side. 



DADEREWSKI will be among us. It will be a 
great treat for us at the extremity of the world, 
condemned as we are to the old chestnuts of our 
local — stars. He begins his next American season 
at the Metropolitan Opera House of New York, 
December 27th, and will leave soon after for the 
West, playing in San Francisco the latter part of 
January. Also Sybil Sanderson, Melba Massenet 
Tamagno, De Reszke, Mancinelli and other artists 
of fame will come to America for the next season, 
but will they ever reach Frisco ?

THE WASP. 



PERSONALITIES. 



THEOLOGICAL SEMINARIES graduate young men full fledged to 
enact the role of divines. These young men are destined to officiate 
as teachers of morality and religion, and to lead the people, by persuasive 
voice and gesture, to the practice of the noblest virtues and the pushing of 
the grandest activities. 

One of these institutions, the San Francisco Theological Seminary, is 
richly endowed, having been enriched by the gifts of Mr. Alexander Mont- 
gomery, while living, and rendered opulent by his death, by receiving " the 
residue " of his estate to the tune of some $750,000. This Seminary is an 
interested party in a little legal matter, involving some $1 5,000, loaned to 
Charles A. Wetmore, the Contra Blanca Vineyardist. The gentleman 
above named, before being pushed to the wall by his creditors, borrowed 
from A. J. Ralston the sum of $15,000, for which he gave his note, secured 
by mortgage on his vineyard. This note and mortgage was subsequently 
transferred to the San Francisco Seminary. The interest thereon was eight 
per cent, compounded monthly, and the accumulated debt now amounts 
to over $17,000, which is being forced to a settlement. The Sheriff is to 
step in and the celebrated vineyard is to be sold to meet the demands of 
the Seminary. Aside from the question of the Seminary having held an 
interest in a vineyard and its vintage is the problem of a religious insti- 
tution, teaching morality and religion, compounding interest. How about 
the biblical story of the man, forgiven his debt, taking his fellow servant 
by the throat, who owed him, until the last farthing was paid ? How about 
the Jewish brother in " The Merchant of Venice," who demanded his 
" pound of flesh," no matter how much blood was shed ? 

How about a religious organization, such as a theological seminary, 
squeezing the grapes on a vineyard, until the same is exhausted of juices 
and forced to a Sheriff 's sale ? 



HIS LORDSHIP IS IN TOWN. 

1 ORD RANDOLPH from the ferry rode 

All in a pleasant mood, 
And as he passed, off went the hat 

Of each obsequious dude. 




AVE YOU EARD THE NEWS? ' 



His Lordship to the Palace went, 
And when he slaked his thirst, 

A crowd with whisk brooms smote away 
Each particle of dust. 

Scotch whisky mixed with soda was 
His Lordship's brimming holt — 

The same that good Victoria loves, 
When she feels like a jolt. 



Scarce had Lord Randolph, wearied much 

By travel long and hard, 
Upon his couch reclined, than each 

Fond dude sent up his card. 

White-hatted Dan, the horseman, wrote 
'Neath Talbot Clifton's name 

His patronymic, in the chase 
To bag this noble game. 

And courtiers from the Cosmos Club, 

And from the Union, too, 
Sent up a mighty pack of cards. 

Lord Randolph's grace to sue. 



Alas!

For gentleness, alack ! 
Lord Randolph Churchill, "blarst me heyes,"

CDITOR McKAYE'S latest contribution to the world of literature is a 
story entitled, " The Answer to the Stars." I shall give it a careful 
reading for a fixed purpose. Mr. McKaye has hovered around the theatres 
more than usual of late and while I have been thwarted in my attempts to 
find out just what the stars had to say to him, I hope to gain an inkling of 
what is going on through his answer to them. I hope that they have said 
nothing that a young man of his modesty and sensibility could take offense 
at. His answer to the stars is just at the present of unusual interest to 
them, and I hope no breach of promise suits will follow. A case involving 
an estate valued at $350,000, which has been in court for seven years, was 
on Monday decided in favor of the talented young author and the answer 
f the man who can write a check for that amount will surely be prized by 



feminine stars, unless they have undergone a wonderful change within the 
last twenty-four hours. Patterning afterhis friend in hopes of meeting 
with literary success and in expectation of finding himself, also, in sudden 
possession of $350,000, Willieboy Wilberforce, the idol of the lawn tennis 
contingent " doncher know," is engaged in writing a novelette which he 
has christened, "Answer to an Invitation to a Five O'clock Tea." 



SEAU ? 
THE cook every eve had a beau 
' And the mistress commanded her 
" Geau." 
But the girl merely laughed 
As if she were daughed, 
And pleasantly answered "Neau." 



TONES — I am in favor of women's 

*-* rights to a certain extent. 

Eddy — To what extent, may I ask ? "~*~g 
Jones — That they shall not be de- ™||J 

barred from becoming the wives of male ' ' 

voters. 



THE reason why, along the beach : 
* The men are all such fixtures, 
Is from the fact that present taste 
Has run to living pictures. 



N c 



[O one can believe all he hears. He 
will do wondrous well if he suc- 
ceeds in his efforts to believe all he says. 




I OBSERVE, with no small amount of pleasure, the cat-like harmony ex- 
isting in the Democratic fold and which points so auspiciously for a 
grand Democratic upheaval a little later on. Frank J. Moffitt, of the Oak- 
land Times, and Hon. John Daggett, Superintendent of the Mint, are at 
present exchanging compliments and handsful of hair in an endeavor to 
determine who shall boss the machine in Alameda county. The fight is a 
bitter one and each of the belligerents is urging that the other is no gentle- 
man. It is not my fight and I do not wish to comment upon it further than 
to assure them that the public indorses the opinion that each holds of the 
other, believing them both to be gentlemen of rare good judgment, ahem ! 
I flatter myself that I have done justice to both without calling down on my 
head the displeasure of either. 



CHE showed her ankle on the street 
^ And men began to mutter, 
But next day in her bathing suit 
She didn't cause a flntter. 



THAT dangerous craze which had a run a few years ago, and which re- 
sulted, in several instances, of outlandishly high prices being paid for 
very ordinary photographs, in order to get them in circulation, is again be- 
ing revived in San Francisco. I refer to ladies having their pictures taken 
in costumes consisting principally of the ether-laden atmosphere of the 
photographic studio. Only the other day the proprietor of a popular gal- 
lery was paid a visit by a young married lady who, after viewing several 
classical pictures, abruptly asked if she could not have her picture taken 
without being encumbered 
with apparel while posing. 
The proprietor explained 
that it would be necessary 
for her to wear some drap- , „ v/t ...... 

ery. The lady departed, jhR HL * ^mH \ (ftir ' yjjiMh 

promising to call on the mor- 
row. She arrived at the ap- 
pointed hour carrying an 
envelope in her hand. 

" Where is the drapery ?" 
the artist made bold to in- 
quire. 

"Here it is!" she said, 
as she smilingly took from 
the envelope a delicate lace 
handkerchief about the size 
of a Columbian stamp and 
held it daintily in her gloved 
hand. The photographer 
was last seen down at the 
water front trying to hire a skiff that leaked copiously. 




T ESS modest and scrupulous was another photographer whom I have in 
my mind. A lady entered his studio and expressed her desire to be 

photographed in drapery extremely light and airy. 

"Why, certainly, madam ; here you are! " said the obliging camera 

man, as he plucked a feather from the duster he held in his hand. " You 

will find the dressing-room to your left." The Biographer. 



THE WASP. 



CAME TO LIFE. 

IT is not generally known that Thomas C. Leary, 
' she sorrow-vanisher at the Tivoli, came with- 
in an ace of becoming a 
heavy man. When quite 
young he joined a travel- 
ing company and was as- 
signed the part of a villain 
in a transplanted Bowery 
drama. The first night he 
made his appearance in 
I hat role he was duly killed 
for his crimes by the hero 
of the play, which closed 
the act. The curtain came 
down within three feet of 
the stage and there it stub- 
bornly stuck. Thomas, the 
corpse, arose to his feet 
and with the remark, " I 
have led such a wicked 
life that there is no rest for 
me even after death," 
stepped forward and 
yanked the curtain down 
amid shouts of laughter. 
Ever since that eventful night, Mr. Leary has de- 
voted himself lo comedy. 



A TIKED FEELING. 





IT WAS STRANGE. 

Allbright — I'd just like to know why that 
baby persists in staying awake all night. I'm al- 
most dead from walking the floor. 

Wife — Really I can't imagine. I never 
have any trouble keeping her asleep in the 
daytime. 




HATTED AND SASHED. 

The reason why at the beach I was mashed, 

By a girl at her own sweet will, 
Was because she was hatted and gowned and 
sashed 

In a style that was ready to kill. 




(~\N THE STAGE— Smile, fair one, that I may 
^ smile with thee. Those dainty ruby lips 
were made only for smiles and kisses. 

Behind the Scenes — Unfasten that Lake Mer- 
ritt yawp from the neck of that bottle, you bleached 
out relic of the dark ages, or I'll brain you with a 
boot. I want a smile myself. 



i "THE audience at the Paple's Peolace ap- 
* plauded wildly after Miss Screecher sang." 

" Did they enjoy her music ? " 

" No ; they were delighted because they couldn't 
hear her." » 




PROPER FOR THE 

BEACH. 

LAS ! it's bad," said the 
burlesque queen, 
"That so much of my 
slender wage 
Must go for raiment I can- 
not wear 
Except upon the stage." 

But suddenly a gladsome 
smile 
Across her face did 
reach, 
When she happened to 
bethink her of 
The sea, and its bathing 
beach. 



A HOPELESS EFFORT. 
THERE is a desperate but apparent hopeless ef- 
fort to revive the old-time excitement in base- 
ball this year. The most 
that the game can get in 
the daily newspapers is a 
measly six lines or so. 
That tells the tale. Tugs- 
ofwar get a column, 
strikes, not baseball, half 
a page, and cheap Chi 
nese warfare, pages and 
supplements. Public 
opinion seems to be 
against the national game 
for some inexplicable 
reason. It wou'd not be 
surprising to read any 
morning in the police news an item like this : 

GOT HIS DESERTS. 

Billy BigknucMe, a member of the Fan Franci6co nine, and who 
heretofore has borne an excellent reputati was yesterday sen- 
tenced by Judge Joachinson in serve thirty days in jail lor stealing 
a base during a game last Sunday, 





JUST LIKE A WOMAN. 

Jack Pot — Now, that's just like a woman. 
Here's a twelve-page letter from my wife and not 
one word as to when she intends starting for 
home. I don't know whether it is best to have 
the house cleaned up or lay in another stock of 
liquors.

What a sight ! Such pans ! such pots !

I got no further. Up jumped the creature, doffed her apron, and in a 
most impertinent manner said : 

" I don't stand no nosing around my kitchen. If things don't suit you 

hump ! I give you two days' notice." 

"Give me notice, you hussy ! " I cried ; " pack your trunk and go at 
once." 

Thereupon I began to count the silver, and in two hours I had her, 
bag and baggage, out of the house. 

IN the afternoon I went to the employment office, "intelligence office" I 
believe they call it. The man who named it thus must have been a 
wag. I went up to the lady at the desk and said I had come to look for a 
cook. She ushered me into a little hallway, smilingly saying, " Won't you 
walk into the parlor ?" with a sort of "spider and the fly " look. I in- 
formed her that I wanted a good, strong, hearty woman, clean and a good 
cook, for whose services I was prepared to pay twenty-five dollars ptr 
month. She stepped into the office and I heard her say: "There's a 

woman in there who wants a lady to do her cooking " I did not hear 

the rest. The blood rushed to my head, but by the time she returned to 
the " parlor " with a " lady " I had recovered my self control. 

"Madam," I said, " I fear you have been sadly mixing your nouns. 
Allow me to advise you to consult Webster so as not to misapply the 
words ' lady ' and ' woman ' in the future." 

Then, sniffing audibly, I gathered my skirts closely round me and 
walked slowly out. I shall attend to the kitchen myself until Jane's return. 



JOHN WILLIAM brought me a note from his teacher the other day. 
Said the note: 

M v Dear Madam : 1 wo Id very much like to see you on account of young Brown H is 
conduct is such that unless serious measures are adopted. 1 shall be compelled to expel him from 
school. 

Tru ting you will give the matter your immediate attention, I remain 

\ ours respectfully, BlKDIE Matnev Birche. 

The next day found me at school, to consult with Miss Birche and see 
what possibly could be done to save John William from the gallows. I 
could see by the tone of his teacher's note that the young rascal was slowly 
but surely getting there. 

When I entered the class-room Miss Birche was busily reading a 
yellow covered text book called " Dodo." Some new thing in science, I 
guess. The boys were copying some rigamarole about " Improve each 
shining hour " from the blackboard. "I'll be through this book in a mo- 
ment," the teacher said. I explained I came in regard to young John 
Brown. 

" John," she said, "is one of the worst boys I have in the class. He'll 
drive me to distraction. He is continually dropping his ruler and making 
a noise with his slate on the desk. And then he interrupts me in my 
studies. Now, for an example, yesterday I was reading a most interesting 
chapter on metaphysics in the " Saffron Faster," and I wanted to finish the 
book before 3 o'clock, when up jumps that boy and declares he cannot 
understand the explanation of the greatest common divisor given in the 
text book and wants me to explain it to him. Believe me, madam, that 
boy will come to no good end. Then he is so disagreeable ; pray, watch 
and see. John ! John I See ? I had to call him twice. There are three 
other Johns in the room, but he might have known I meant him. Get me 
a glass of water, John, please. Did you hear how noisily he put down his 
pen ? He contrives to continually rasp my nerves that way." 

I did not know what to say ; I just looked at the teacher. She was a 
quivering bundle of nerves. John brought the glass of water. She took 
up a blue bottle and poured out a teaspoonful of white, powdery stuff that 
effervesced as she stirred it into the water. 

" Foamo, for the nerves," said she ; " we teachers buy it by the whole- 
sale. We've got to. Teaching is such trying work." 



" Worse than being married or keeping house ? " I remarked. 

" Oh, I should think that would be heaven in comparison." 

" Did you ever keep house ? " I asked, severely. 

" No, but I hope to before long," said she with a significant smile, and 
she actually blushed behind her glasses. 

I left in disgust. A woman that would voluntarily give up an eighty- 
dollar-a-month job to become the slave of some selfish and odious man has 
no sense. I wonder how she ever got into the School Department.

some time ago, as all the wedding presents were 
in and the caterer had received his instructions 
even down to the exact brand of toothpicks he was 
to use. James will have to publish an open letter 
soon if this thing keeps on. 



JACK FEATHERSTONE, whose fame in society 
" antedates Mr. Greenway and Mariner Cham- 
bliss, as far as the celebrity of Washington does 
the glory to Governor Markham in politics, is 
being talked of a good deal among the Four 
Hundred nowadays. Formerly Mr. Featherstone 
was called the mascot, for every girl to whom he 
paid furious attentions was immediately carried off 
by some other fellow. This was considered good 
for the girls and bad for Featherstone. But there 
is a sequel always to affairs of the heart and matri- 
monial complications, and the question now arises 
whether Mr. Featherstone is unlucky or otherwise, 
for all the girls that deserted him to become the 
matronly belles of Nob Hill have figured more or 
less in the divorce courts. Only this week I heard 
of still another who was worshipped in the days 
gone by so devoutly by Mr. Featherstone that the 
knees of his Sunday-go-to-meeting pants looked 
like the trousers of a salvation army recruit when- 
ever he went to see her. Despite Jack's devotions 
and adoration she became the bride of a gallant 
military gentleman, brft now she is whispering her 
domestic woes to a leading lawyer and I should 
not be surprised any day to read another column- 
and-a-half sensation in the morning papers about 
marriage being a failure. By general consent Mr. 
Featherstone is now called the hoodoo of Nob 
Hill. 



DOHEMIAN circles are very much agitated by 
u the report of Mr. Peter Bigelow's eccentrici- 
ties. They did not pay much attention when he 
began to grow his hair on the chrysanthemum 
plan. The fact only aroused mild interest when 
it became known that he had bought a suit of 
clothes which were not manufactured by Poole of 
London. When it was announced by indisputable 
authority, however, that Mr. Bigelow went to see 
" Dorothy " at the Tivoli and sat through all the 
acts without ever going out to see a man in the 
front of the house, Bohemian circles were pain- 
fully shocked. Next to the annoncement that Mr. 
Bigelow had been attacked by peresis or run over 
by a railroad train, the news could not have been 
more exciting. Serious trouble is going to happen 
to Peter. It wouldn't surprise me to hear him 
running for Secretary of State on the Prohibition 
ticket. 



I AM informed by one of Mr. Greenway's con- 
' fidential friends who heard it, I understand, 
from Editor Garrett of the Chronicle officially, 
that Leader Chambliss is to be shot the day he 
publishes his long-delayed but very celebrated 
book. I understand that a reporter is already 
writing up Mr. Chambliss' obituary and Artist 
Lyon, the face artist of the Chronic, e, is drawing 
a life-size portrait of Mr. Chambliss in his gorg- 
eous regimentals as third mate, with a large 
mourning band, two inches deep, around the en- 
graving. Poor Chambliss ! he was not a bad 
sort of fellow while alive. 



I SAW Mr. Jimmy D y in the Park the other 

* day with his very latest fiancee. Every other 
week the fact is an-nounced, or contradicted, that 
the wedding is indefinitely postponed, and after 
each announcement the handsome swain appears 
in public with his beloved hanging on his arm on 
the side next to his heart. What puzzles the 
gossips is, why the marriage did not take place 



LIENRY MILLER, the idol of the matinee girls, 
is, they say, the recipient of a large amount 
of epistolic worship in the shape of highly-srented 
notes from his admirers in the back rows of the 
dress-circle on Saturday and Wednesday. The 
fact that there are four little Millers who use the 
letters to make tails to their kites does not seem 
in the least to dampen the ardor of the aforesaid 
fair ones. 



THE arrival of Lord Randolph Churchill created 
* a great flutter among the dudes. All the 
notable bloods sent up their cards and waited in 
a row while the courtly head clerk of the Palace 
Hotel called front and sent a colored gentleman 
with a large clothes-basket filled with the paste- 
boards to the great English politician. The cards 
were all sent back with the answer, " His Lud- 
ship is not to 'ome to h'anybody." The clubs, 
from the Pacific-Union to the Burlingame, are in 
mourning. The Gossip. 

THE PALM. 



Opening of a First-Class Restaurant. 



Two beautiful palm trees at 943 and 945 Mar- 
ket street mark the entrance to one of the 
handsomest and most thoroughly complete res- 
taurants in San Francisco. This new establish- 
ment, which is a strong condidate for public 
favor, is known as the Palm Dining Room and 
its formal opening on the evening of August 5 th 
was an event of importance to the epicures of this 
city. On that occasion the beauties of this model 
new restaurant were inspected by thousands while 
the Park Band discoursed popular airs. The pro- 
prietors, George Boeckman and A. T. Graner, 
who are widely known as experienced restaura- 
teurs and genial, whole-souled gentlemen, are 
being highly complimented upon the splendid 
taste they displayed in furnishing this mammoth 
and magnificent establishment. The dining-room 
is admirably lighted and ventilated and embodies 
every comfort and convenience. The floors are 
covered with linoleum and the wainscoting, chairs 
and tables are all of beautifully grained oak. The 
division line between the space reserved for the 
ladies and that set aside for the gentlemen is 
prominently marked by a handsome oak fence. 
A tastefully arranged series of heavy plate-glass 
mirrors, alternating in diamond and square 
shapes, ornament the walls just above the wain- 
scoting with grand effect. The kitchen is a model 
one and is presided over by a first class chef, who 
is supported by a corps of competent assistants. 
The Palm has enjoyed a splendid patronage from 
the day its doors were opened and its success is 
assured. The fare and the service at the Palm is 
in keeping with its general luxurious surround- 
ings, and yet Messrs. Boeckman & Graner have 
adopted popular prices and their course will be 
severely felt by the high price places. The en- 
terprising proprietors will leave nothing undone to 
maintain the present high standard of the Palm.

ONLY A DUDE. 

Jealous Husband — Didn't you entertain some- 
one this afternoon ? 

Wife (frightened') — Ye-yes, sir. 

Jealous Husband — Who was it? I demand 
that you confess your guilt ! 

Wife — It was Snippy, the Oakland dude. You 
remember we met him at Mrs. Van Ness's. 

Jealous Husband (ineekly) — Forgive me, dear- 
est ; I had a suspicion that you were entertaining 
a man. 

A DUDE moved softly into 's place of busi- 

'*■ ness and ranged himself along in front of a 
clerk. 

"I wish to purchase a perspirer," he said in a 
lady-like voice. 

"A what?" asked the clerk, letting his chin 
drop. 

"A perspirer," repeated the dude; "one of 
those," he added, pointing to what he wanted. 

" Oh," apologized the clerk, " you mean a 
sweater," and he raised the price fifty per cent on 
him. 

ti AND who is that man?" said the visitor in 
** the Stockton Insane Asylum, pointing to a 
cell where a pallid inmate was making wild lunges

"That," said the attendant, "is a man who 
witnessed Squabby Greenway execute the skip-

SPECIAL NOTICE. 
Citv subscribers who fail to receive their paper promptly on Saturday morning will please 
notify the Publication Office, Nucleus Building. 




T the present time war is being 
waged in earnest between China 
and Japan and the Japanese 
are proving themselves to be 
the best skilled in modern war- 
fare. The Chinese are com- 
pletely dazed to find that the 
deadly stinkpot of a century ago no 
longer carries with it terror and con- 
sternation. Perhaps if it could be loaded 
with the foul fumes which permeate 
the Chinese quarters of San Francisco, 
its usefulness as a powerful weapon of 
warfare might be restored ; or if the 
"beery " atmosphere of the hall in which the Democratic Convention has 
just been held could be bottled, China would still stand some show of 
scattering the Japanese forces. As it is, China is fighting at a disadvan- 
tage and may be said to be playing second tom-tom. 

* * * 

THE railroad people are industriously circulating petitions for signatures 
praying for the Government ownership of daily newspapers. So far 
the daily press of this city has declined to lend suppart to the measure. 

* * * 

THE nomination of Sutro for Mayor by the San Francisco Populists is a 
stupendous joke. He is a typical plutocrat of the class the Populists 
so fiercely denounce, and since his nomination a general search has been 
instituted for that priceless jewel, consistency. By this time the Populists 
must be doubting their own sincerity. Sutro is a millionaire and a land 
monopolist of the most pronounced type. He owns more land in the city 
and county of San Francisco than any other one man, and has the just 
reputation of being a hard-fisted financier. His life and character are not 
in harmony with the professed principles of the poverty-worshipping Popu- 
lists, but possibly the leaders of the firecracker party deemed it advisable 
to close their eyes to the inconsistency of nominating Mr. Sutro in order 
that the campaign fund might attain healthy proportions. Mr. Sutro's 
nomination for Mayor by the Populists, following on the heels of the dis- 
covery that Governor Pennoyer rides on a free pass, is the straw that frac- 
tures the spinal column of the Populistic ship of the desert. 

* * * 

IV] 0, Gertrude, " Chips That Pass in the Night" was not written by so- 
ciety leader Chambliss. He is the author of " Tar, Fish and 
Society," or, " How to Eat Green Corn Without Holding the Cob on the 
Table with Your Foot." As a work of literary merit it surpasses " The 
Diseases of Swine," recently issued by the Agricultural Bureau. No in- 
sane asylum should be withuut a copy. 

* * * 

CAME is not noted for its longevity. A few brief weeks ago the eyes of 
the whole country were on Presidents Debs and Cleveland and every- 
body was wondering what they would do next. Now Debs his dropped 



completely out of sight and Cleveland wishes that he could follow suit. 
The only gentleman now prominently before the public is Mrs. John Martin 

of Trinity county. 

* * * 

TF everything goes well, another powerful dramatic company will soon 
take the road. It is rumored that Worden will be the heavy man of 
the company, if there are no legal impediments. Mrs. John Martin, lead- 
ing lady, and Max Popper, comedian. The play in which they will make 
their debut is entitled, " Wills, Wrecks and Wrangles." 

* * * 

THE WASP believes in giving the devil his due and with considerable 
pride points to the fact that not a single beer saloon in this city was 
broken into during the week of the Democratic Convention. 

* * * 

THE worst fears of the rountry are shortly to be realized. Miss Pollard, 

of Breckinridge notoriety, is to go on the stage, making her debut in a 

piece especially written for her and which is designed to give scope to her 

peculiar abilities. The proper time to pass bouquets over the footlights is 

at the close of the hack scene. 

* * * 

/"\NE of the most annoying features of the municipal election will be the 
re-count which Dr. O'Donnell will insist upon and obtain. His 
hobby is to have his defeat declared often. 

* * * 

f-< ESARIO SANTO GERONIMO, the assassin of President Carnot, was 
of a highly nervous temperament and it took only a trifle to excite 
him. Only the other day, Santo, in the presence of French officials and 
soldiers, grew nervous and completely lost his head. 

* * * 

PRESIDENT CLEVELAND'S physician has declared him sick and or- 
dered him to Buzzard's Bay. Sight must not be lost of the fact that 

the country was sick first.

Y\7 H AT matters it to the country if sugar is placed on the free list ? It is 
proposed to keep the tariff up on gin. The Democrats are so obsti- 
nate that they will not legislate to further their own personal interests.

THE FIN DE S1ECLE GIRL.

And golden gleams were on his hair, and bright 
His lips were, like the new-prest wine.

A longed-for day, such perfect joy to bring. 
He lost on stocks, afraid to sell too soon ; 

I went abroad, but — kept the diamond ring. 

My next betrothed, severe and dark, was Paul, 

With touch of mystery to fascinate. 
A man one noticed in a crowd, so tall 

Was he. I could for hours dilate 

Upon that strange, sweet charm. He seemed at last yy/fo 

With all his soul unto my love to cling. 
Just then a wife sprang up from out the past ; 

I wept salt tears, but — kept the diamond ring. 

And after that, dear Harry, blithe and gay ; 

I seemed to find a change complete in him. 
Here was no air of secrets held at bay, 

But just a fine young fellow full of vim. 

We were engaged, my trousseau made again, 
When friendly gossip-birds began to sing. 

They told me that the gold cure was in vain ; 
He had D. T. I kept the diamond ring. 

And here is John. Plain, uneventful days 
I'm calmly looking forward to just now. 

There'll be a carriage and a pair ot bays, 
A summer cottage and a Jersey cow. 

I will admit he's rather plain and green, 
But wit and beauty are not ev rything ; 

Beside, if obstacles arise between, 

I've got this thousand dollar diamond ring. 

Where other girls repine and cry in vain, 
I gaily laugh and flirt and dance and sing. 

While they despair, /get engaged again, 

And simply wait, and — keep the diamond ring.

ROUND AND ABOUT. 



OW it is said that a well-known society lady, 
whose face had taken on the wrinkles that 
come with the years — but, unlike the years, 
do not go away of their own accord — and 
whose eyes and other features bore the 
marks of many late-at-nights and cham- 
pagnes, has been rejuvenated in New York 
city and will soon return to San Francisco to 
pose as a winter belle. She has undergone 
a secret treatment in New York — one hun- 
dred dollars' worth — and now presents the 
cheeks and chin and throat and forehead of 
a sweet girl graduate from Berkeley. But, 
alas ! the treatment does not work on the 
furrowed hands. 

It is said that there are only two artists in 
in this country who possess this wonderful 
secret. What a boon it would be if these 
gentlemen would come to San Francisco and 
could extend their science a little further, so as to take the kinks and wrin- 
kles out of characters and reputations. Judge Coffey's court-room and the 
Martin will contest would furnish a splendid field for their operations. 
Mrs. John could be made a shining sample-piece to advertise the business, 
and the human females who frequent the court-room, to revel in moral 
filth, should certainly become patrons of the new discovery.

IT is reported that when Ed. Greenway learned how "Leader" Cham- 
bliss had reduced himself in rank to " Third Mate " by his testimony 
in the Martin will case, the former fainted with joy. After he had been 
revived by a timely application of salts — and senna — he rushed straight- 
away to the establishment of his tailor that " had been " once upon a time, 
and his first words to that individual were these : 

" I want to be measured for a suit of the finest in the house — cost is 
no object." 

The tailor blinked, looked wistfully at Mr. Greenway's cheery coun- 
tenance, and sighed from his boots up to his trembling lips. 

" But, the — you know, Mr. 
Greenway " he stammered. 

" Yes, I know," said the jubil- 
ant fashionable. "But don't let. 
that worry you. I am not at all un- 
easy about it- " 

" I know that, too d well," 

interrupted the tailor, recovering 
his spiritual vim. " I'm the one 
that walks the floor of nights — 
not the likes of you." 

"But, my dear tailor," Mr. 
Greenway went on, " I am on vel- 
vet again. Look you," producing 
a daily paper and reading that 
portion of Mr. Chambliss' testi- 
mony which so shocked his aristo- 
cratic cod-fishers — I mean, admir- 
ers — "look you. My hated and much execrated rival has committed so- 
cial suicide. He has, under oath, reduced himself to a mere Jack Tar — 
a sailor whose hands have been soiled by oakum and ropes and dirty sails, 
and whose food for years has been hard-tack, salt-horse and mahogany. 
He is doomed to oblivion, and I, I alone, will wave the magic wand and 
wield the sceptre amongst the Four Hundred. What sayest thou ? Do I 
get my suit of superfine ? " '^ — 

" Thou doest," replied the tailor ; " aye, a dozen." 
Then he embraced Mr. Greenway, laid his head on the latter's right 
shoulder and wept for joy. This particular tailor had never been blest 
with the "pull" and patronage of the "Third Mate." 




whizz of California atmosphere in them— and Mr. Hatton, who is a good 
swimmer, immediately started to the rescue. 
He bravely dragged the young ladies out of 
the dangerous swell to a place of safety, 
and then he began to swell. And most of 
the seasiders encouraged him in the swell- 
ing. 

But there were four or five Oakland and 
San Francisco newspapermen among those 
seaside sojourners, and it did not take them 
long to throw a cloud over Mr. Hatton's 
glory. They know him to be a thorough 
newspaperman, with all the erratic instincts 
that go with the character, and that he will 
resort to any trick for newspaper effect and 
to gain a frontage for himself. These wicked 
Bohemians soon circulated the report that it was a fake, a put-up job, and 
that the two young ladies were in no danger at all, and knew it. 

" What a pity there were two of them ! " said a matronly lady, when 
the "rescue" was effected. " If there had been only one we might have 
had a real, lovely, romantic wedding ; but then," she added, in an under- 
tone, " what would that big, bulking Mrs. D have said ? " 

Journalist Hatton will do no more " rescuing " at Santa Cruz, not 
even if the indefinite Mrs. D herself were sinking in the rolling brine.

AA/HEN A. S. Pringle ventures over to Oakland it is expected that the 
State militia will be called out again to suppress a riot. Since his 
return from Yosemite he is reciting with relish the adventures of an Oak. 
land girl at that glorious mountain retreat. According to Pringle, this 
Oakland miss was wandering dreamily by 
a shady brook one afternoon when she was 
seized with a desire to paddle her pink toot- 
sie-wootsies in the inviting stream. While 
she was engaged in this delightful pastime 
there was a crash and a roar and a large 
cinnamon bear dashed out from the brush 
and confronted her. Giving one shrill Oak- 
land scream, she commenced shinning up 
a sapling and the bear modestly held one 
paw over his eyes until she reached a friend- 
ly limb. While she was loudly shouting for 
help, the bear occupied himself in inspect- 
ing her discarded shoes and hosiery. Pick- 
ing up a brown hose that was liberal in the 
dimensions of the foot and painfully contracted where it should gracefully 
swell, the bear tore it wildly with his teeth and then with a low moan sank 




/"• EORGE L. HATTON, managing editor of the Oakland Tribune, was 
garlanded as a hero at Santa Cruz last week, and his normally large 
and jolly face swelled until it gave him a pain. He was congratulated 
and lionized by all the damsels and the dames, who pace the beach while 
gorgeously attired in abbreviated costumes and nature's tights. 

And Hatton's deed of heroism was this : While he was leisurely 
swimming flip-flopping near one of the rafts, two female voices were heard 
crying out for help. They were young voices — seminary voices with the

to the ground and expired just as Pringle and a few others arrived to rescue 
the young lady. The other stocking was stuffed with liver and thrown into 
a cave known to be alive with coyotes. 



O 



VER at Belvedere there is a young man, whom I shall designate as 
Mr. Junior because that is a close approach to bis name, who is en- 
tering upon life under the most favorable con- 
ditions. He is equipped with a high-grade di- 
ploma from a well-known institution of learn- 
ing, and an asbestos bill of divorce, bearing the 
seal of one of the most fashionable divorce courts 
in San Francisco. In a thoughtless moment 
young Junior deserted his top and marbles to in- 
dulge in the more sober game of matrimony, and 
shortly afterward had it instilled into his youth- 
ful mind that marriage was a cold, clammy failure. 
His grist of woe was dumped into the divorce 
mill with results that were satisfactory all around. 
The impetuous boy was returned to school and, 
graduating a short time ago, has revived the 
romance of his life and renewed interest in the 
figure of a woman, modeled after the wife of his 
boyhood, which is displayed in the show-win- 
dow of a well-known hair-dressing establish- 
ment on Ellis street. The moral to this little 
story has been mislaid.

1 Yes, there is a bitter strife going on among them.' 
"What are they fighting for?" 
" They are fighting for harmony." 



nCEE that man standing over there ? " said Judge Autenrieth, of Yreka, 
^ to his old-time friend, Max Popper, as they stood conversing at the 
Baldwin bar. 

" What of him ? " questioned the promoter of pure politics. 

" He's a delegate to the Convention from Yolo and I'm pretty certain 
that he is a little off in his upper story." 

"What makes you think so?" 

" Why, I've been watching him for an hour and every time he is in- 
vited to take a drink he calls for Shasta water. He'll bear watching, any- 
way. He's either crazy or an all fired poor Democrat." 

MINT SUPERINTENDENT DAGGETT has at last awakened to a re- 
alization of the fact that he is the tail of the tadpole which developed 
into a frog many summers ago. He was shed in Stockton in 1884, which 
distinction brought him prominently before the public and later attracted 
the attention of the good and mighty Cleveland. Mr. Daggett is at present 
suffering from a political stonebruise of the U. S. Senator variety, but it 
isn't at all likely that it will come to a head. The Honorable John cut a sorry 
figure during the recent Democratic State Convention held in this city. 
He had about as much influence with the delegates as Jonah had in direct- 
ing the course of the whale from the interior during his memorable sub- 
marine voyage. He (Daggett, not Jonah) reminds me very much of the 
young man who got married and was shortly afterwards approached by a 
friend, who said : 

"Well, John, I hear you and Mandy are one now." 

" Noap." replied John, " we're ten." 

" How do you make that out ? " asked the friend. 

" Wall, you see Mandy's one and I'm a cipher ; that makes ten, 
doesn't it?" drawled John. 

The Democratic party of California is ten. 



T 



HE State tickets of the various political parties are now all before the 
people and the prospects for the State are far from bright. We have 

the assurance of the party lead- 
ers that their respective candi- 
dates will be elected beyond the 
shadow of a doubt. Nobody 
believes for a moment that a 
political boss would lie, so the 
taxpayers may prepare them- 
selves to accept at least three 
sets of State officials, from Gov- 
ernor down. The busiest per- 
son in the State from now until 
November will be the man who 
makes a business of nailing po- 
litical lies. 



DARON RENE DE LANGE, of Sausalito with a pack of hounds and 

other aristocratic friends, including Count de Beauveaurie, a stranded 

nobleman like the Baron, wore the brush off the hills and ravines in the 

vicinity of Fairfax the other day in their search for deer. They were on 




the verge of giving up the hunt in disgust when the loud baying of the 
hounds attracted the attention of the distinguished Nimrods to a clump of 
bushes which had escaped their hob-nailed shoes. There they caught a 
glimpse of a deer and the animal was dispatched after about forty volleys 
had been fired. About the time they made the discovery that the deer 
was a cow, a hard-hearted old farmer appeared and demanded thirty dol- 
lars for the defunct milkster, for which six dollars would have been a drug 
store price. It was no easy matter for that crowd of pecuniarily embarrassed 
noblemen to raise that amount, but after some little delay they succeeded. 
After the matter was satisfactorily adjusted, the old farmer warmly invited 
them to call again, saying that he intended to improve the shooting there- 
about by turning in some broad-gauge cows which would be easier to hit. 



QUITE a scene ensued in the Democratic Convention when Judge 
Wiley, of Tehama, arose and abruptly placed Jack Hankins in nom- 
ination for Governor. 

"Who in the is Hankins?" asked an irreverent delegate from 

Marin. 

" He's dead, but in his day he was a dandy," replied the Judge en- 
thusiastically. 

" We are not here to nominate dead men," warmly retorted the man 
from Marin. 

" It's our only hope," said the Judge, good naturedly. "No Demo- 
crat living can be elected Governor of California this year." 



r^AWGE MOURNS looked at the clock. He had been talking so in- 
tently to the girl that he had forgotten all about the clock. The 
clock returned his gaze with a hurt look out of its honest face. The girl's 
eyes were heavy. Mr. Mourns started suddenly as if to warn the girl that 
the hour of his departure was at hand, and if she wanted to clinch the bar- 
gain he had proposed to her now was her golden opportunity. This was 
not the first time he had stayed late to persuade her into making^his life 
happy. 

" Don't you think I had better be going ? " he asked, with a hope that 
she would perhaps tell him to stay a little longer. 

" Why, Mr. Mourns," she exclaimed, brightening in a way that en- 
couraged him mightily, " of course I don't think so. I gave up all such 
thoughts as that an hour ago." 

And Gawge went forth into the shadows of the cold, gray night, a 
sadder and a wiser man.

A LITTLE bird, not of the chippie variety, who 
^ twitters among the foliage in front of the 
Tivoli, has whispered to me that Tenor Dunbar 
was knocked all in a heap when informed that 
Baritone Raphael was to play the half-fairy in 
" Iolanthe." Were it not for the peculiar con- 
struction of the tenor's mental apparatus he would 
have become a chronic victim to paresis so dire 
was his discomfiture, for, in being shut out of 
" Iolanthe," he lost not only the fame of an ap- 
pearance before crowded houses in a picturesque 
part, but was also deprived of his salary during the 
run of the piece, an affliction well calculated to 
exasperate the most melodious temperament. 



JWIISS FANNIE LIDDIARD, who will be pleas- 
"* antly remembered by the patrons of the 
Tivoli, is on her way to San Francisco from 
China, where she achieved great success till the 
war ended the show business. An excellent por- 
trait of Miss Liddiard, made by The Wasp's 
photo-engraving establishment, graces the head 
of this column. 



4 < I IVING PICTURES," at the Tivoli, have 
^ been a great disappointment to those who 
went expecting something of the " Frenchy " order. 
The representations are all of the strictly proper 
and thoroughly draped variety and were very 
pretty. In fact, in that respect the fairies of 
" Iolanthe," which precedes the " Pictures," are 
much more of the Parisian variety of illustration 
than the animated groupings in the picture frame. 
It was worthy of note that the " Living Pictures " 
which received the heartiest applause were those 
that dealt with juvenile subjects. Evidently the 
family element patronizes the Tivoli very liberally. 



IT comes to me straight from the same little bird 
in the Tivoli palm leaves, that Tenor Dunbar 
is reaping the reward of his own foolishness in 
being laid off during the run of " Iolanthe." Once 
upon a time, it is said, the tenor woke up in the 
morning with a fnghtfui enlargement of the upper 
s ory, for on three successive days his name had 
been glorified in print by Peter Robertson and 
George Barnes. Already he saw himself, in his 
mind, posing before excited audiences in London, 
Berlin, Paris and Petaluma, with all the critics 
doing homage to his chest notes, and the manage- 
ments lying awake nights devising means to raise 
his salary without bankrupting themselves. The 
tenor stalked into that little front room of the 
Tivoli where financial transactions take place and 
announced that the McKinley tariff would imme- 
diately go into effect with regard to his salary. 
The verbal answer of the managers has been 
stricken off the records as not fit even for one of 
Ferris Hartman's topical songs. The other answer 



was given in the substitution of George Olmi, who 
took the tenor part and played it so satisfactorily 
to the audience, while Mr. Dunbar cooled his head 
on the corner and drew no salary, that the aston- 
ished tenor resolved to put an iron band in his 
hat in future. Latterly, I understand, the band 
has been mislaid and the expansion of his head 
has again demanded drastic remedies. Hence, the 
substitution of Baritone Raphael for the regular 
tenor in " Iolanthe." The audience seems to like 
it. Some other substitutions could be made, too, 
with great advantage, though taking it all in all 
the performance is one of the best ever given by 
the Tivoli management.

nCL'LAMITH," the historical Hebrew Opera 
^ given at Stockwell's Theatre, was not the 
success it might have achieved tf represented by 
some artists. The singing was very poor in- 
deed. The exception was Miss Lina Goldstein, 
known in town as Miss Lizzie Schwartz, who 
made her debut in the role of " Sulamith." Evi- 
dently her debut was premature, the young lady 
not having finished her course of studies such to 
guarantee a success, but her good tendency and 
latent talent were absolutely manifest by a charm- 
ing, natural ease and repose. Miss Schwartz does 
not possess a very strong voice, but it is of a wide 
range, clear and sweet, and the young lady uses 
it in a very correct manner. This is very natural, 
Miss Schwartz having studied singing under the 
care of Madam Emilia Tojetti, the same lady who 
taught Miss Lotta Musto, whose pretty style of 
singing has been recognized publicly on some 
past occasions.

OUR PRIZE PUZZLE PICTURE. 

Find the representative Farmer, Merchant, Manufacturer, Working Man or Banker in the above gathering of political leaders, 
solving the puzzle. 

[The craze for puzzle pictures has raged in the East and Europe for months. The Wasp, not to be backward in enterprise, follows the fashion and presents the above engraving. It is a reproduction by 
Tee Wasp of the front page of our esteemed morning contemporary, giving the portraits of some ot the shining lights of the Democratic State Convention meeting this week at the Baldwin Theatre, To facili- 
tate the labors of those desiring to solve the puzzle and win the $100,000 so magnanimously offered , we append the full name and profession of each of the Democratic leaders : 

Hon. T.J. Clunie, Lawyer; Ex-Speaker Gould, Lawyer ; Hon. J. H. Budd, LAWYER ; Hon. Byron Waters, IiAIVB ER; Hon. Dennis Spencer, LAWYER ', Hon. Patrick Reddy, LAWYER. 

Now find the representative politician in this group who is not a lawyer. Find him, in fact, in any political convention group of to-day and get a medal, — Ed. Wasp.] 



HOW TO GET THERE. 



IF you want to fool the public, 
* In this land so fair and free, 
And grab the fruits of office, 
You must a lawyer be. 

A lawyer full of legal points 

And technicalitee, 
But who in honest business 

Doesn't know his ABC. 

If you wish to shout reform, 
That monopolists must flee, 

You'll not find it profitable 
'Less a lawyerkeen you be. 

A lawyer patriotic, 

Who to no man bows his knee, 
Unles she first talks business 

And pays down a fine, fat fee. 



In the days when our forefathers 
Were as simple as could be, 

They sent farmers on to Congress 
On wise measures to agree. 

Now, the lawyers fill both houses, 
And they talk so steadilee 

While the country pays expenses 
That we're all in miseree. 

In time they'll fence around the earth 

And all the restless sea, 
And if you want to breathe you'll have 

Some lawyer keen to see. 

They do whatever pleases 

With such perfect masteree, 

It's strange they let St. Peter 
Keep his famous golden key.

i 1 A RE yez the Harbor Commissioner ? " an excited woman asked Col. 
Chadbourne yesterday morning. The Colonel stroked his hand- 
some moustache and smilingly answered in the affirmitive. " Well, Oi 
hav' a job lor yez. That pinched face Maloney girrul nixt door to me is 
harboring my son Danny at her house all th' toime, and I hav' to split me 
own wood, chase the duck and do me own schorin', and I want yez to see 
that she don't harbor him any more." 

"But, my good woman," began the Colonel sweetly, "this case is out 
of my jurisdiction." 

" You're like all the rest av 'em — as soon as yez gets in office yez 
don't want to do anything but draw yer wages. But I've spoken to yez, 
and av that Maloney valentine harbors Danny another night Oi'll sind my 
owld man afther ye an' he'll make you tink ivery hair in your head is a

OH, GEORGE! 
COR many months past the observing of a certain neighborhood near 

Van Ness and Broadway have watched with much interest the unmis- 
takable manifestations of love and devotion existing between a supposed 
musical professor and his 
young and beautiful wife. 
Daily they were to be seen 
sitting cosily in the bay win- 
dow, presenting a picture of 
comfort and happiness that 
to many mismated couples in 
that vicinity seemed like a 
glimpse of heaven. Occa- 
sionally the wife would glide 
over to the piano and play 
with a skill that entranced the 
neighbors while the husband's 
musical voice would be heard 
in some late ballad. The 
other day a young lady saw 
the "Professor" enter his 
happy home and thought she 
recognized him. To make 
sure she inquired of the child 
of a friend, who was playing 
on the steps of her home near by. 

" The gentleman that went into that house ? " repeated the child. 
" Oh, that's the music professor and he's got the lovliest wife ; you just 
ought to see her! " 

The young lady has thoroughly convinced herself and a number of 
her friends that the " Professor " is a well-known Bohemian and the dis- 
tinguished representative of an Oriental Government.

What the Dusky Folk Hundred Are Do- 
ing at the Annie Kooney Rancheria. 



Annie Rooney Rancheria, Aug. 23, 1S94. 

Dear Wasp : Box Car William, who had a 
terrible hand-to-hand conflict with an Arctic pole 
cat two weeks ago, is again seen at social gather- 
ings. 

Gopher Ann, who started for Fort Klamath on 
a pony last May, returned home yesterday. She 
brought back six yellow curs, a coyote scalp and 
a suit of soldier clothes. She reports having en- 
joyed herself real well. 

The rain beat into the tepee of One-Eyed Susan 
Monday night and took the kinks out of a three- 
dollar accordeon which was voted her at a moca- 
sin soup festival last winter. 

At a sweat dance given by Oldman-with-a- 
leak-in-hiswhiskers, Tuesday night, Red Willie 
cut off the back paniers of Lady Audley Carion's 
polonaise with a Tomahawk while she was sing- 
ing "The Fatal Wedding." Willie assigned as 
the cause for the act that Lady Audley not only 
slurred her notes, but everybody else on the 
rancheria. She will recover, but she will go limp- 
ing into the happy hunting grounds. The keen 
blade severed a musical chord. 

Prancing Mosquito, who was the first to intro- 
duce the lancers and the mumps into the charmed 
circle of the Colorado-madura Four Hundred, has 
been visiting his sister, who has been dangerously 
ill with the smallpox, at Rattlesnake Meadows for 
several days past. As he is in demand in society 
here, we should not be surprised if a grand out- 
break among the better class of Indians will follow 
his return home. He is expected to arrive to-mor- 
row. 

Miss Pomery Sec Pinch Eye, daughter of the pro- 
prietor of the dried salmon chop-house, who has 
been the reigning society belle for three seasons, 
has not only been denied admittance so the wicki- 
ups of many old families, but has been turned 
adrift in the cold world by her haughty father. 
About a week ago she was seen conversing with 
a commercial drummer and her father placed her 
satchet-bag and beaded mocasins out on the trail 
and disowned her. She is being greatly censured 
for her indiscretion. Crowfoot. 



STREET-CAR SQUEEZING. 

Mr. Editor : If you were a female — I take it 
for granted that you are a male, notwithstanding 
your delicacy of expression in The Wasp — you 
would appreciate some things of which you are 
now unconscious. To illustrate what I mean : 
The discomfit the gentler sex — pardon this self- 
allusion — experience in entering or leaving a ca- 
ble-car on Market street is a disgrace to our civil- 
ization. 

Every afternoon, toward evening, the rear plat- 
forms of the cars, en route from the ferry are 
crowded. When a lady enters or leaves one of 
these "carry-alls" she is almost crushed, by hav- 
ing to struggle through a lot of masculine bipeds. 
(Their quadrupedistic superiors would instinctively 
make way for any female of the animal kind.) 

At the right time and place we do not object to 
masculine pressure — we rather enjoy it ; but we 
do protest to such pressure in public by a lot of 
fellows with soiled collars and offensive breaths. 

What would you think, sir, if a half dozen frouzy 
looking females — of assorted sizes — should so 
throng a car platform, that, to leave or gain a 
footing upon it, you would have to literally force 
your way through a solid compact mass of women ! 

How you would glare at the females who dare 
to obstruct your lordly passage. How you would 
fuss and fume to have your immaculate shirt-front 
ruffled and the creases in your " unmentionables " 
effaced. 

That, sir, is nothing to what we have to endure 
when patronizing the car lines of this city. Will 
you not gallantly come to our rescue and allow 
The Wasp to sting the anatomy of those ill-bred 
fellows, where it will hurt the most ? It will be 
appreciated by your female friends, who may yet 
have the right to ballot. Miss MiGGS. 



A SPOONY MINISTER. 
IT is said, by eye-witnesses, that a clergyman of 
this city, formerly of Van Ness avenue, who 
has made a record among the fair sex, overlooks 
the fact that Oakland is free from fogs, mists and 
kindted envelopers. The preacher in question is 
clear-visioned in theology and far above suspicion 
of being heretical in teaching. His pulpit ges- 
tures are always graceful, being on curved lines 
which are considered lines of beauty. Notwith- 
standing his aptness in illustration and clearness 
in logic, he overlooks the fact that what may not 
be visible to the naked eye in San Francisco, is as 
an open book in Oakland. 

This clerical swain is fond of the piazza, a 
luxury seldom, if ever, enjoyed in this city, and 
may be seen several nights a week sitting thereon, 
close to the side of his inamorata. 

As the evening advances, the neighbors notice 
that his chair comes closer to that of his beloved, 
until the blissful moment is reached, when he en- 
circles her tapering waist. 

Then the law of " osculation " is artistically 
illustrated, to the delight of his (to him) unseen 
audience, to say nothing of the delirium of joy ex- 
perienced by his charmer. 

The simple fact is, the preacher is so absorbed 
in extracting sweets from the cherry-red lips of his 
darling, that he overlooks the fact that he is no 
longer curtained in by the fogs of the Pacific. 

" Bobby Burns " has something to say about 
" seeing ourselves as others see us." The court- 
ing minister needs to have his " pure mind stirred 
up in the way of remembrance," and it is pre- 
sumed that this little ventilation of his public 
courtship practice will retire him to the parlor of 
his lady-love, for there is no doubt but that he 
reads The Wasp, otherwise he would not be 
abreast of the age in thought, nor up in the 
" higher criticism." 

If this open-air osculation and its accompani- 
ments continue, one of our camera fiends will be 
commissioned to take a few snap shots at the in- 
teresting couple, simply to illustrate the instanta- 
neous process in public courtship as Edison has 
done with trotters. Julia Searchlight. 




WHY THE MEN WERE SHY. 

Julia — I'm sure, mamma, it's no fault of Angie's 
or my own that we are not engaged. Matters 
looked very bright for us until you came here. 

Mamma — Heavens ! what's that got to do with 
it? 

Julia — Why, those horrid comic papers have 
created a prejudice against able-bodied mothers- 
in-law. Won't you please take anti-fat until we 
are off your hands? 

THE SARCASTIC BARNSTORMERS (after the 
' bombardment from the gallery) — I have eggs 
enough now, thank you. Will no one send up an 
accompanying ham ? 

The Gallery (with emphasis) — It's on the 
stage now ! 




GOOD REFERENCES. 

Miss Afterox— Our acquaintance has teen 50 
short that I feel that I ought to know more about 
you before I consent to be your wife. \ 

Count Gotnone (stiffly)— Very well. I can 
refer you to sixteen young ladies in San Francisco 
to whom I am engaged, and they will tell ycu 
that there is nothing slow about me. 



JV/IRS. JINKS — I hate to get on a railroad train ; 
so many people die that way. 
JiNKS^That's just the reason I hate to go to 
bed ; still more people die that way. 



A CTOR— Hurry, or we'll miss the train. 

Actress — I. can't find my diamonds or purse. 
"Oh, well, never mind." 
"Yes, but the purse had ten dollars in it."

WENT Saturday to the matinee. It 
is a thing I had not done in years. 
I have had such a trying week, so 
many mental shocks and brain per- 
plexities, that when Janette proposed 
we spend Saturday afternoon at the 
theatre, I was just tickled to death. I 
felt it would be just three hours of 
mental relaxation. She would be 
safely by my side and with no opportunity to get in mischief. But before 
I record my Saturday experience, I must write of my trials during the 
week. 



f~\N Wednesday evening, Janette, who was dressed for a party, came to 
me and said : 

" Tabitha, dear, you know Cheever — J. Cheever Snobs ? Well, I 
have just promised to be his wife, and he has given me a diamond brace 
let. Don't look so astonished, dear. See, he just sent me this note : 

Miss'Janettc Brown: Will you be my wife? Snubs. 

" I have already dispatched my answer : 

"'You bet I will ] ' 

"Get your breath back, now, like an old dear and congratulate me." 
I was thunderstruck — paralyzed. I could scarcely manage to gasp, 
" Your mother ! " when the minx replied : 

" Oh ! she is all right. She knows all about 
it. Her last words to me were : ' Grab him 
quick, Janette, if you get the chance.' I got 
the chance, and I've grabbed him." 

1 just sat looking at that girl for nearly ten 
minutes. Then I began to think of days long 
ago and — John, John whom I did not "grab 
quick." Ah! me. But I did my duty. I tele- 
graphed to lhat hussy's mother. This 
is her reply : 

Miss Tabitlia Twiggs : You are a mascot chap, 
crou. Jane B*own. 

I wonder the Maine air did not stifle 
Jane when she wrote that telegram. 




JANETTE AND HER BRACELET. 



THURSDAY morning 
Janette appeared an al- 
together different girl. She 
got a note-book and pencil 
and sat down to figure, at 
least so she said, seriously. 
I was just measuring out v 
the flavoring for the pud- ^ 
ding when she came to me 
and said : 

" Tabitha, can't you give 
me a few moments of your 
time ? I want to make ar- 
rangements for my wed- 
ding. Now don't look 
aghast. It's nearly the end of August now, and I should like to marry in 
September. The time to get ready is short, I admit, but the ist of Novem- 
ber is my birthday, and if I marry in November I would get birthday and 
wedding presents together. The same with December. I should be 
cheated out of Xmas gifts. So you see then there is no alternative but 
October, but I've set my heart on going out of town in October, and after 
this Maine trip, mamma won't be able to afford to take me. So you see 
Cheever can, for our bridal trip. Yes, it will have to be in September. 

" I shall have it a church wedding ; church decorations won't come 
very high ; just palms, artistic and inexpensive. I shall send out six hundred 
invitations— to the church, and shall invite about ten home to breakfast. 
Admission to church will be ' by card only.' That makes it more select, 
and those invited to the church feel as though a great deal was being done 
for them. It shall be a noon wedding ; high noon. That sounds aristo- 
cratic. 

" I think I shall have about six bridesmaids. That will be so nice. 
You see each of the bridesmaids will give a luncheon or a dinner in my 



honor previous to the happy event. I said I would be married at noon, 
didn't I ? Well, it will be half-past twelve before we can get home from 
church. I shall leave for my trip at two. That allows about an hour at 
table ; one hour ! We won't have to have much of a lunch, and Tabitha, 
dear, if anyone asks if I am going housekeeping, tell them yes, and say I 
am awfully fond of handsome ornaments. Is there anything, Tabitha, 
you might suggest ? I'm young, you know, and mamma is not here to ad- 
vise me." 

I just stared at that slip of girl and did not answer a word; but I 
made the mistake of my life that day. I put celery salt, for vanilla flavor, 
into the pudding. 



C RID AY Janette was busy all day receiving the congratulations of her 
, friends, and Saturday we went to the matinee. I put on my best 
black silk, my light kids and a very small bonnet that I have especially for 
the theatre. Janette was dressed remarkably well and looked extremely 
handsome. The theatre was packed and it was warm enough to melt 
butter, but all the women present kept on their veils. Janette told me 
they were too becoming to take off. 



A FTER the play we went into the dressing-room so Janette might arrange 
her veil and hair. It was crowded to suffocation with women. They 
were all using the same powder rag, a black and greasy piece of chamois, 
and dabbing their faces from a common box of powder, and such a noise 
as there was in that room. Such secrets ! " Bella is just clear gone on 

Henry M. -" " Say, I saw H. M. on Kearny street the other afternoon. 

He walked behind me for two blocks " "Oh, Kate, you know H. M., 

can't you introduce us to him ? " " He has four children, did you say ? 

And I wrote him a dear little note and inclosed my latchkey." I hurried 
Janette out of that room as fast as I could. I felt sure such conversation 
she should not hear. On the way home Janette asked: "Tabitha, do 
you think he is going to use that latchkey ? " 

These San Francisco girls are too much for me.

But they chin on forever. 

They throng the Baldwin J*J 
corridors ; 
They know not law or 
order ; 
They spit upon the marble 
floors, 
They crowd the steady 
boarder. 
They chatter, chatter, as they booze, 

And never, never quiver. 
A nice cold bot. they'll ne'er refuse ; 
They'll swipe good wine forever. 

Three deep they stand before the bar ; 

Some slick, some brown and dusty ; 
Some come from near and some from far, 

But all superbly thirsty. 
And chin, and chin, and chin, and chin, 

With voices ever frisky ; 
This delegate proclaims for gin, 

And this for good old whisky. 

And now again the ranks recede, 
And others take their station ; 
Those at the free lunch wildly feed, 
And nurse the situation ; 

For drinks and food are 
passing free, 
And candidates are clever, 
And set 'em up until the 
spree 
Bids fair to last forever. 

The henchmen, dodging 
there and here, 
Seize men at every turn- 
ing; 
I Their breaths pervade the at- 
mosphere, 
Like simoons hotly burn 
ing. 
And then they twist the supple wrist, 

Fire up the steaming liver, 
And ne'er a chance by them is missed 
To booze and booze forever. 

Steady Boarder. 




A MARKET-STREET SENSATION. 

Millie-Christine's procession of twenty prancing 
steeds and a grand barouche would have been the 
sensation of the week even if Manager Smith, the 
talented and popular impresario of the two-headed 
nightingale, had not taken precautions to fill the 
vehicle with local celebrities. On the front seat 
the delighted populace recognized Tom Doran, 
the Gladstone of the Tenth Ward, who knows so 
much about politics that whenever he appears at 
his district club meeting the opposition put out the 
lights immediately. Guiseppi Vincenti, the emi- 
nent south-of-Market-street baritone whose duets 
with Mr. Edwin Hagan, the Clara- street basso, 
have been the delight of the Friday night musicals 
at the Windsor Hotel, reclined among the velvet 
barouche in front of the celebrated Polish exile. 
Count Nicholofsky, a distant relative of the Prin- 
cess Dolgorouky , the Orpheum violinist. The Count 
is temporarily filling an engagement with a hand- 
saw on the roof of the new Spreckels' building on 
Market street. Many scions of the Polish nobility 
are eminent in the carpenter trade. Count Nich- 
olofsky was clothed like the gorgeous Czar of all 
the Russias and smoked one of Manager Smith's 
two-bit cigars with a nonchalance that was perfectly 
dare-devil considering the menace that the burn- 
ing weed was to his luxuriant black false whiskers. 



This recklessness nearly caused a catastrophe 
when some anarchist stepped out of the Chronicle 
building as the procession was passing by and 
presented the imitation Czar with a ten-cent bou- 
quet in the center of which was concealed a deadly 
bomb of the terrible "redhead" variety. For- 
tunately Signor Vincenti detected the ruse to sup- 
plement the Carnot tragedy with another anarchist 
triumph, and snatched the bouquet away in time 
to have it explode against Tom Doran's jaw instead 
of the Count's whiskers. It did no damage what- 
ever. The procession, after doing the town, 
pulled up in front of the Millie-Christine show on 
Market street, followed by 15,000 people, more or 
less, and Manager Smith harangued as many of 
them as could get into the hall at ten cents a 
head. It was a great afternoon for Market and 
Fifth streets. 

OUR CARTOON. 
f\UR cartoon this week shows the contrast be- 
tween the street sweeping as done by the 
Merchants' Association and the old time sweeper. 
In the former case the money goes to the actual 
sweeper. In the latter most of it goes to corrupt 
City Hall Officials. 



T'O his mate the caterpillar said, 
' In a tone of caution, soft and low, 
As they clung to the branch just overhead, 
Get on to the girl in the hammock below.

A MERCIFUL WORK. 



-A-rul Still the Godlike "Work 
Goes On. 




The Boy Phenomenon Still Cnrlns the sick by 
Hundreds Who Have Been fcilven Up to Die— 
His Parlors at the Baldwin Hotel Daily 
Thronsed With Crowds of Am iocs and Ar- 
dieted People. 



And still the Godlike work of healing afflicted 
humanity goes bravely on. Day after day crowds 
of the most prominent and influential citizens of 
this entire State may be seen in the parlors of the 
Boy Phenomenon, at the Baldwin Hotel. Many 
are just commencing treatment who for years have 
considered their cases hopeless and incurable, but 
have been lead to take this treatment after person- 
ally investigating some of the many marvelous 
cures accomplished by Dr. Temple the past few 
months, while others may be seen bidding the 
Doctor good-by with tears of joy in their eyes, a 
"God bless you, Doctor," and an expression of 
praise and gratitude suffusing their joyful counte- 
nances that is most happy and pathetic in the ex- 
treme. 

The remarkable cures accomplished by Dr. 
Temple has set the medical world aghast. One 
case that has especially attracted the attention of 
many is that of Mrs. Harry Hook, wife of the 
special officer of the Southern Pacific Railway. 
This sweet little lady had been a very great suf- 
ferer from paralysis for years, necessitating her 
husband's attention constantly, he being com- 
pelled to carry her in his arms whenever she went 
out, being totally unable to even stand alone. 
After four magnetic treatments by Dr. Temple 
she was enabled to walk to the Baldwin Hotel, and 
now walks without assistance. 

Another very marvelous restoration to health 
was that of Miss Stateler, daughter of T. K. State- 
ler, the well-known ticket agent of the Southern 
Pacific Railway at Alameda, who has been a hope- 
less and helpless cripple for years, barely able to 
get around with the aid of two crutches. After one 
treatment she was enabled to discard her crutches, 
and now she walks as well as ever she did. 

Mrs. Richardson, who for eight years was to- 
tally blind, is now able to see, and has had only 
three treatments. The little son of Mrs. F. Kiernan 
of Vallejo, has had a very serious case of hip dis- 
ease for years, but was cured in four treatments, 
as was also John P. Bryant of 917 Powell street, 
who had been deaf for years, but heard a whisper 
after a few moments' treatment by this wonderful 
boy. 

Hundreds of such unsolicited testimonials from 
well-known citizens are on file in the doctor's of- 
fice, and may be seen and the parties consulted 
by all who are interested. He not only treats the 
blind, lame and crippled, but all diseases quickly 
yield to this strange power. 

Those who are willing and able to pay for treat- 
ment may come to his private parlors in the Bald- 
win Hotel, entrance at 930 Market street, any day 
this week from 10 a. M. to 4 p. m. Consultation 
and advice free. 

All examinations are made without questions, 
and every ache and pain described far better than 
the patients can themselves. 

Price for treatment within the reach of all.

Which goes with speed intense ; 
She cares not for the trolley wire 

Whose voltage is immense.

acres of ground and climb barb wire fences 
to escape the affable though inquisitive gaze 

Of an aged, docile cow.

of the fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps has pro- 
vided for our breakfast and supper a delicately flavoured beverage, 
which may save us many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judi- 
cious use of such articles of diet that a constitution may be gradual- 
ly built up until strong enough to resist every tendency to disease. 
Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack 
wherever there is a weak point. We may escape many a fatal 
shaft by keeping ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a 
properly nourished frame." — Civil Service Gazette.

Tke readers of this paperwill be pleased to learn 
that there is at least one dreaded disease that sci- 
ence has been able to cure in all its stages and that 
is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi- 
tive cure now known to the medical fraternity. 
Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a 
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is 
taken internally, acting directly on the blood and 
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby destroyins 
the_ foundation of the disease, and giving the 
patient strength by building up the constitution 
and assisting nature in doing its work. The pro- 
prietors have so much faith in its curative powers, 
that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any case 
that it fails to cure. Send for list of Testimonials.

VERYONE will be interested in our double-page 
cartoon this week which depicts the various politi- 
cal leaders as getting ready for the November race. 
Mr. Webster hopes to win on a patient, long-eared 
animal, which is being enticed to display unusual 
speed by a tempting offering from the political veg- 
etable garden. Mr. Budd is in the act of mount- 
ing the obstreperous Democratic mule, assisted by 
Maximus Popper, Welburn and English, who ap- 
parently have their hands full. Mr. Estee, on his 
gallant charger, appears to be the best equipped 
for the Gubernatorial race and is calm and confident, though the steed is 
high-spirited and somewhat fractious. Sutro, all booted and spurred, is 
shown with his favorite hobby-horse getting ready to ride in the direc- 
tion of the Mayor's office, which will be a long journey on his slow going 
courser. Other political jockeys are on hand with an odd assortment of 
racing stock, completing a most beautiful and interesting study of the polit- 
ical race-course as it is today.

r^OLONEL BRECKINRIDGE suggests in one of his speeches that " this 

is not a good time to send untried men to Congress." The Colonel 

is quite right. If trying untried men is to furnish the sensational reading

Congress.

number of quacks.

them to mildly remark, " Whoa, Emma ! "

A STUDENT of Shakespeare is reported to have written to Senator Gor-

nominated for Supreme Justice. The Convention questioned the advisabil- 
ity of putting in the field a straight out-and-out Murphy ticket.

/CONGRESSMAN GEARY missed the Democratic State Convention. 
He was called home by a little event which might reasonably be 
expected to happen in any active, patient-waiting family. The suggestion 
is respectfully offered that if it is a boy the oily Congressman christen him 
Wilson Bill. That "one vote" must be "squared" in some way before 
the election rolls around.

ROUND AND ABOUT. 



OTHING to my mind is more "fetching" 
than a charming young widow and this 
opinion is shared by a prominent young in- 
surance man on Sansome street. He has 
been the willing slave of a little woman in 
black, who occupies modest apartments in 
a Post-street lodging-house, for lo ! these 
many months. From time to time he has 
accommodated her with " loans " to meet 
her expenses until something turned up in 
her favor. Since the hard times came on 
the insurance man has not been overbur- 
dened with money, yet the little widow 
never applied to the Sansome street sucker 
for succor without receiving it. Finally the 
request for "loans " came with a frequency 
that compelled the insurance man to re- 
monstrate with the widow for her extrava- 
gance. 

" I am not extravagant, George dear," she 
said in a pained voice, " and you will say so when you see what I have 
been doing with the money you have so kindly given me." 

George continued to ante, but with difficulty, all the time wondering 
what surprise the sweet widow had in store for him. Last Sunday his 
curiosity was gratified. At the widow's request, George procured a team 
and they drove out to Cypress Lawn Cemetery. Pointing to a well-kept 
mound marked by a beautiful Scotch granite monument, the widow proudly 
said : 

" George dear, with the money you gave me I purchased that beauti- 
ful monument for my dear departed husband. Now ain't you sorry you 
accused me of extravagance ? " 

George is still her friend. The widow having no more monuments to 
erect, he reasoned that it was wise to make the best of the situation. 




THE WIDOW'S REVENGE. 

t * T 'M bound to have revenge," she said, 

* " But I'll not take his life. 
I'll lure him to propose to me. 
And I will be his wife." 



M 




IT WAS HARD WORK. 

RS. MOLE— Why, Mr. Barcar, you look all run 
down. What's the matter with you ? 
Mr. Barcar — Last week I served as a member 
of the Committee on Resolutions for the Democratic 
Convention and we were asked to mention some 
acts of Congress for indorsement. I am the sole 
survivor of that committee. 



N exceedingly pretty story of trie engagement of Mr. J -2 and the 

beautiful Miss Sapphire is afljit in the upper circles where The Wasp 
most freely circulates. Romantic in the 
highest degree is the anecdote — I might 
say the confession — for an avowal 
of guilt is involved in the story. It 
was at the wedding breakfast of the 
niece of the late Mrs. Moses Hop- 
kins, afterwards Mrs. Searles, that the 
distinguished couple, who are the subjects 
of the romance, first met auspiciously. 
Prior to that they had met as strangers on 
the street and, of course, never spoke as 
they passed by ; but at this swagger 
breakfast they were visa vis while the 
cakes were being cut. And thereby 
hangs the thread of my romance. 



INHERE is a wholesale merchant on Pine street who is reported to be 

quite gay and festive when the opportunity presents itself, and at sum- 
mer resorts the breath of scandal has almost touched him on several occa- 
sions. His wife's good friends have made her miserable by informing her 
of his wickedness, and retribution is close at hand for the foxy old rake. 

" When do you start on your vacation ? " a friend asked him the other 
day. 

" To-morrow." 

" Going away for pleasure ? " 

" Noap ; my wife is going with me." 




r 



"WO great wedding cakes had been 
constructed for the eminent occa- 
sion. I say constructed, for they were 
built as scientifically and with as much 
regard to the canons of constructive skill 
as one of Mr. Page Brown's substantial 
million-dollar creations. The laborious 
modus operandi of the bakery is, how- 
ever, of no interest further than the fact 
that the heart of each cake was of virgin 
gold. In one the precious but unrespon- 
sive core was a heart of the orthodox 
shape ; in the other, a plain hoop of the 
yellow metal such as those with which 
Cupid forges on ardent swains the galling 

bonds of matrimony. A simple golden hoop of the matrimonial variety ! 

Who should be the lucky youth to get the heart and'who the happy maiden

to find the ring in her piece of cake ? The Fates, of course, would decide. 
Would they, indeed ? Yes, verily, if they took the shape of a fashionable 
caterer with a keen-bladed knife and an eye equally sharp for the favored 
ones at the feast. Ah, me ! that wedding guests should be so trusting and 
caterers so artful. Ludwig's discriminating blade, it is alleged, apportioned 
the metalic heart to the young gentleman he thought most considerately of 
at the moment for business reasons, and the coveted circlet of gold to the 
beautiful damsel whose orders for the preceding month had been the 
most munificent; but Cupid, ever blind to mercenary trifles, overlooked 
the prosaic motive of the award and acting on the romantic impulse of the 
moment, flung his imperceptible garland of orange blossoms round the 
favored couple. The rest of the h ippy story is too sacred for cold print. 
Wedding bells will soon ring and everyone wUhes the young couple joy, 
for, to quote the aphorism of the greatest of bards, " all the world loves a 
lover." 



"THIS touching story is practically a confession. The waiter who served 
' the cake told it with what he thought was his dying gasp. He had 
been engaged as plate-handler and napkin-twister to a young ladies' cook- 
ing school patronized not only by the creme, but the ice-cream de la 
cream of the local Four Hundred. One day, in a moment of mental aber- 
ration he ate a piece of a frosted doughnut cooked by one of the prize pu- 
pils of the academy and immediately fell in spasms. Believing that the 
time had come to clear his conscience of all taint of rascality he whispered 
in the ear of the attendant doctor the story of how he had stood in with 
Ludwig in his mercenary deception and fooled Cupid. I have not heard 
whether the man lived or not, but in all likelihood he is dead. 



XA/HAT I am about to relate is no fairy tale, but the truthful tale of a 
* ' cat. City Treasurer Widber is on the sick list and has gone south 
in the hopes that a change of scene and climate will quiet his nerves and 
prove beneficial to him in other ways. Mr. Widber was the possessor of a 
fine, large, jet black cat, Jeter even than the Democratic nominee for Lieu- 
tenant Governor. Mr. Widber prized the cat very highly and it enjoyed 
the freedom of his drug-store, keeping the mice away from " Rough on 
Rats " at night and dozing the day away among the catnip and other 
herbs. The boys in the store conceived the brilliant idea of applying a 
hair bleaching preparation to the cat's tail, and as Mr. 
Widber only pays occasional visits to the store, they 
neglected to take him into their confidence. In a brief 
length of time the black cat's tail assumed a bright 
golden hue and " Blondine " took a boom. One day 
Mr. Widber was in the store writing out a formula for a 
new scalp lotion for Democratic soreheads when a 
strange cat with a brass colored tail rubbed up against 
him. With a well-directed kick he sent the feline over 
the prescription counter and through a twenty- five-dol- 
lar showcase. Resuming his labors, he was just writing 
down "two barrels of nux vomica" on his scalp lotion 
recipe, when " the cat came back." Seizing a pestle, 
he splattered the venturesome feline's brains over a joblot of celluloid 
trusses, to the horror of the errand boy. When he learned that it was his 
own cat that he had killed, he made a rush for the prussic acid bottle, but

ANOTHER GRIST.

Boarding schools will bloom again

I AST Saturday the San Francisco Press Club having accepted the invita- 
'-' tion of James V. Coleman to have a mid-summer jinks at his place, 
the Rancho del la Guadalupe, left Third and Townsend streets in a special 
car attached to the Monterey express. They were a merry crowd, some 
sixty-five in all, including Judge Sanderson of the Superior Court, Judge 
Low, General McCue, and other distinguished citizens. At San Jose, half 
a dozen four in-hands were awaiting and the excursionists enjoyed the 
beautifully shaded ten-mile drive from San Jose to the Guadalupe mine. 
Along the esplanade to the west of the house which is broad, level and 
wooded some twenty tents had been pitched for the accommodation of Mr. 
Coleman's guests. A short distance further down the cailon a platform 
was built for the jinks and hundreds of Chinese lanterns gave the grounds 



a most brilliant and picturesque appearance. A staff of native Californian 
cooks, under the direction of Mr. Daniel O'Connell, had prepared an asado 
for the evening meal and the Press men sat down with good appetites and 

a correspondingly excel- 
lent thirst under the 
spreading oaks and did 
full justice to the Spanish 
fare. At the close of the 
dinner when coffee and 
cigars had been disposed 
of, the club formed in 
line and to the music of 
a fine band which they 
had brought with them 
from town, marched to 
the jinks' grounds. Here 
Mr. J. Ross Jackson, one 
of the founders of the 
Press Club, organized the 
literary exercises by call- 
ing Mr. Naughton to the 
chair as Sire of the Even- 
ing. The jinks was a 
literary and musical suc- 
cess. Mr. Coleman made 
a very effective speech of 
welcome, M r . Jackson 
recited the early history 
and struggles of the Press 
Club, Mr. Davis told 
about Nevada journalism, 
Mr. O'Connell read an 
HON. james v. coleman. original poem, Mr. Coffin 

and Mr. Bachelor sang, and fun and good fellowship flowed in an uninter- 
rupted stream. The club quartet sang delightfully. In fact, everything 
was of the best. 

On Sunday at noon the bull's- head breakfast was served, and after that 
toothsome feast was disposed of the guests lounged under the trees, some 
wandered up the caflon and some bathed in the stream. It was in all re- 
spects a most successful outing and the club members were profuse in their 
appreciation of the considerate and broad hospitality of their fellow member, 
Mr. Coleman. 

On Monday morning the teams were at the rancho and got the entire 
party to San Jose in good time for the north-bound Monterey express. 
The aftermath of this outing will very likely be that the Press Club as well 
as the Bohemian will make arrangements every summer for an outdoor jinks.

4«pHARLEY'S AUNT" from Brazil, " where 
^-* the nuts come from," has been furnishing 
amusement for crowded audiences in New York, 
Chicago and Boston for the past year by the ex- 
hibition of her, or rather his, trials and troubles. 
From the story of the play it will be seen that the 
opportunities for fun-making are almost endless, 
for the whole thing hinges on the fact that two 
young collegians invite their sweethearts to lunch 
at their rooms, relying upon the appearance of 
Charley's aunt to chaperon. She fails to appear, 
and a chum, Lord Fancourt Babberly, is prevailed 
upon to don a feminine garb and impersonate the 
missing chaperon. His masquerade is intended 
to last only ten minutes, but force of circum- 
stances cause him to retain the character all 
through the afternoon and evening, and the 
scrapes he gets into can better be imagined than 
described. " Charley's Aunt " will be presented 
at the Baldwin on Monday evening next.

THE announcement is made of the re-appear- 
' ance here for the re-opening of the California

house will be run in conjunction with the house 
here, and thus the first step towards establishing a 
high class vaudeville circuit on the coast has been 
made. 

IT will be a matter of interest to the public to 
' know that Millie-Christine, the two-headed 
lady on exhibition at 917 Market street, is single. 
No man has been found who is willing to take 
chances of holding his own against a woman with 
two tongues, although the lady possesses a most 
amiable disposition. As Miss Millie takes quite 
an interest in politics, her talented Manager, Mr. 
Smith, is wondering whether, if the Populists are 
successful, she will be permitted to register once 
or twice and what the election clerks will say when 
she presents herself at the polls to vote.

lsv A Shaki' 



p'OSTIA DOOMCHEFF gave two more recitals, 
leaving a deeper impression on his small au- 
dience, small not to betray the tradition of the San 
Francisco musical (?) people who go only when 
the noisy blast of a heralding trumpet announces 
an artist of ambiguous fame, but prefers to witness 
the acrobatic efforts of minstrels or the kicking of 
any woman. However, the enthusiastic demon- 
stration of the audience, which took the shape of 
a spontaneous ovation, amply compensated for the 
scarcity of its number. 

Young Doomcheft" possesses already in a degree 
far superior to his age, all the requisites necessary 
for a soloist. His tone is broad, clear and telling, 
his intonation pure, his technic almost faultless ; 
though I noticed a certain stiffness in his wrist, 
but growing in years, consequently in experience, 
this defect will disappear and in time he will be 
able to recall the wonderful performance of a 
Paganini. The Cantabiie is the touchstone for 
any instrumentalist and Costia treats it superbly, 
simply because that mysterious motor which vi- 
brates the most recondite fibres of his heart is the 
spark of sacred fire seldom conceded to few by 
the Supreme Factor, who seems to take delight in 
revealing from time to time to us mortals a part 
of his infinite sublimity under a new form. Also 
as a composer Costia gives golden promises of fu- 
ture success. Through his charming " Berceuse" 
he has revealed all his poetical soul. The melodic 
thought of this composition is of such an arcadian 
simplicity and yet so full of meaning, so sweet and 
inspiring, as to coax the listener into the most 
ajsthetic enjoyment. The young virtuoso was 
splendidly seconded by Professor Henry Strauss, 
who accompanied him most admirably. 



\A/E had a succulent musical dish this week in 
the usually much abused form of a concert ; 
this time given by Miss Lilian K. Slinkey, of Sau- 
salito, which was for me somewhat of a conun- 
drum. Certainly it could not be regarded as the 
means to foster art, Miss Slinkey being only an in- 
significant amateur, and the necessity of raising 
funds would not have entitled her to the suffrage 
of the people, as the young lady is said to be in 
flourishing enough circumstances not to stoop to 
the disagreeable expedient of soliciting aid. I 
leave it to somebody else to solve the conundrum. 
Miss Slinkey announces her departure for Milan, 
where she will study for the stage. She will learn, 
however, only how to appreciate the smiling sur- 
roundings of El Monte Hotel. 



IWIISS SLINKEY, after having studied in Milan 
with a truly competent teacher for several 
years, will, I fear, not achieve the success which 
misguided friends anticipate, because her vocal 
means have none of the theatrical qualities and 
her dramatic talent does not incline too strongly 
towards the stage. This she plainly showed when 
she tried to sing the role of Martha a few months 
ago. In San Francisco funny things in the line 
of lyric ambitions are admired by blind friends, 
but in Italy they generally are triumphantly hissed 
if not made the target for potatoes and overripe 
egg-fruit. However, with a nice little fat sack 
any American amateur may finally obtain from 
some unconscientious third class impresario a 
chance to make a debut in a little village theatre 
and have a purchased article of praise declaring 
that all Italy is enchanted by her sublime, artistic 
revelations, that the enthusiastic Romans call her 
their pet, and so on and so forth. Then, retiring 
to Milan, the aspirant awaits a real engagement, 



which will never come as in the case of Miss 
Jacquay, who, though having far superior vocal 
means and talent to Miss Slinkey, has been for a 
long time announced in the Milan theatrical papers 
with the sad but eloquent word disponibiU. It 
is true that Miss Slinkey will have a great oppor- 
tunity to obtain letters of recommendation from 
that patented humbug, her vocal teacher, but in 
Italy they know pretty well who taught Tamagno. 
and such letters will only provoke laughter ; though 
I must add that I sincerely admire Miss Slinkey's 
courage, but before making- the false step, the 
young lady ought to ponder that there is nothing 
after all so sweet as " Home, Sweet Home."

life was an active one, especially in the early days 
of San Francisco, and he possessed traits of char- 
acter which commanded the highest respect. The 
funeral of the deceased took place Monday, Aug. 
27th, the service at the residence, 1919 California

A NOTHER cold-blooded attempt has been made by Mr. Greenway and 
his henchmen to drag down Mr. Chambliss from his high social ped- 
estal. Last Saturday night Mr. Chambliss was inveigled into a Norwegian 
dancing academy on Geary street, understanding that Earl Russell and 
Talbot Clifton were to add lustre to the ball which was to be given there. 
To his dismay he found the hall thronged principally with dressmakers, 
and he sorely regretted that fate had decreed that he should arrive in ad- 
vance of Russell and Clifton — but they would come and his social dignity 
would be preserved. The hours wore on and still his distinguished friends 
failed to materialize. He amused himself by blinding the assemblage with 
his dazzling diamonds and in sailing through cotillions to the briny air of 
" A Life on the Ocean Wave," until the party broke up. When the or- 
chestra reached under the curtained platform for his violin box three men 
were found concealed there, and they proved to be the paid tools of Mr. 
Greenway. The innocent victim of Mr. Greenway's hellish plot is not in 
the slightest perturbed over the affair and is calmly engaged on the con- 
cluding chapters of his interesting book on society, which promises to be 
a grand literary success. 

THE great social sensation of the week has been the row between William 
K. Vandebilt and his wife on account of the Parisian demi-mondaine, 
Nellie Neustretter, and other affairs. Nellie, by the way, is a product of 
the Golden State. She was raised in a shanty among the sandhills of 
Hayes Valley and changed her name from Nellie Cohen to Neustretter 
when she married a cigar drummer with a nose of such a pronounced 
aquiline type that the boys called him " Judy " on account of the striking 
resemblance of his nasal organ to that of the ill-fated heroine of the ortho- 
dox Punch and Judy show. Nellie's number sevens have worn many a 
track in the sidewalk of Market and Kearny streets. She was a brunette 
of the most voluptuous type.

office could not have been surpassed in efficiency. It was at once energetic, 
business-like, fair and honest. The record he made should prove of great 
value to him in his present canvass where he is so well and so favorably 
known.
