A San Fraucisco merchant, who haa seen looking" at the daily swarm of bicyclers on ths boulevard and in Central park, declares that he is astonished at the popular disturbance over thd bloomer question in New York. MWhy, you don't know anything" about bloom-eta here," he says. "Not one in a hundred pf the women who use 'wheels hei'e is wearing the mannish garments. It is exactly the opposite in San Francisco. Not more than one in -fifty of he wheeling women wear skirts when riding.

Then, again, I notice that you inveigh against the bloomers on the score of jnodesty. Well, in San Francisco the boot is on the other foot. Our more modest women say that delicacy is what has forced them into bloomers. You we suffer from such constant and strong winds up oft the heigiits and in tbe park by the Golden gate where alone there is level ground for wheeling, that skirts are impossible garments. They cannot be kept down, and therefore the women will have to wear something that will not be blown about.

We have become so accustomed to them that we no longer take sides tipon the question of their fitness. Instead, we are unanimous in our admiration of a pretty" woman in a stylish and Well fitted bloomer costume." The chances are that next spring will witness a general all-round "scrap" be WESTBOUND.

A report just issued by the geological survey shows that the quarry value of the stone produced in 894 was $37,377,816, of which 33,000,000 was used for the construction of, buildings. Pennsylvania leads all of the other states in this product, Ohio coming next and Vermont third. Over three -fourths oi the total product is in a small portion of the area of the country, from Maine to Illinois; and the vast deposits of all kinds of stone in the south and far west have as yet been only superficially worked. Reports of fruit trees bearing second crops have been quite numerous this year, but, not to be outdone in this respect, the Berkeley (Cal.) Gazette claims that in that city there is a' peat tree but five years old which is now bearing its third yield of fruit for this year. There are now on the tree ripe pears from the first crop, half -ripe pears from the second crop and blossoms from the third crop.

It is a very frigid day when California can't furnish a big fruit story. Patent Medicines and Toilet Articles. Prescriptions Jl Accuratelu Comnoiinded. COUNTY Trooanrpr M. M.
