"What Is tho reason," exclaimed a do
spomlcut young man, "that tho more
money a girl has tho uglier she is?"
This seems to bo a common impression, i
but in sail Francisco tho facts do not hear
it out. Even tho rich girls aro pretty there,
and as for tho penniless lovers they aro
simply distracting, but that is a way tho
penniless lovers have tho world over, much
to tho disgust of mercenary and match
making mammas. Hero Is a group of
beauties, however, of which each and every
one was born with a solid silver spoon in
her rosy mouth.
This stately girl with tho willowy figure
and haughty carrlago is Miss Graco Mc
Donough and is the heiress toi cool three
millions. Sho is tho daughter of Mrs. Kate
McDonough, who built the California tho-
ntre, ami a cousin of Mrs. Fred Muy and
Mrs. Henry Moss, who are so well known
In New York. Sho has an exceptionally
sweet face and is attractive enough to play
tho rolo of Cophctua with signal success if
sho needed.
Tills dainty little creature, a regular
Queen Mab of girls, Is Miss Carrolao. Sho
Is round and dimpled and sunny haired
aud has a complexion like a Dresden shep
herdess. Sho is as good as silo is pretty
and spends no end of money in charity.
Sho Is immensely rich, aud life is full of
zest and enjoyment for her. Sho Is tho
very Hfo of charades and no new "fad" is
started without her npprovul.
Miss Ella Good is ten times prettier than
a picture. Sho is one of a trio of lovely
girls, daughters of V. F. Good, tho rich
banker. She and her sisters aro ex
tremely beautiful and impassably ex
clusive Miss Good's stylo Is very classic.
MIS3 KI.I.A (!(K)l).
She has waving musses of bronze hair,
which foils owoy from her low forehead In
crinkling strands; a complexion like ala
baster or, rather, like tho puro dead white
of a magnolia. Her eyes aro of that pe
culiar, clear, steel gray, with dilating pupils
which give a brilliancy never to bo ac
quired by belladonna or even by that
modern uecromaucer, tho beauty doctor,
charm she never so wixcly.
Tho Good residence at 'Washington and
Hough btreets is a magnificent structure,
It took about UOO.OOU of Papa Good's
dollars to build it. He expended muny
thousands mo.e in the purchase of furni
ture, pictures, statuary, etc,, and has made
Ills house a palace. Miss Good inherits
her father's amlablllt). They are south
erners, Ansa .Jennie Dumphy It hrowu haired and
ftoft eyed. Her elder sister married an
actor, much to the amazement and horror
of her family. It was a genuine love
match, and there is a touch of rvmaiicii
about it that appeals to every Imagination.
She was deeply attached to her handsome
bohetnlau huhband and was very happy
with him, but nlio only 1 1 veil n short tttno
after her marriage. Her husband wan com
pletely prostrated by her midden death,
and in two weeks ho followed her to t ho
grave. IIo wiw Htrong and In tliti very
prime of life, and the doctor could llnd no
urtma for the malady which killed him.
Old faihlotied people nay it was u broken
heart that killed ldm. Her Muter' death
left Miss Dllmpliy the polo hclren.i to over
$3,000,000. Shu 'Is a charming brunette,
with npnrkliiig eyea and perfectly molded and bust.
Ml Dumphy'H father la among the limit
extensive land owner. In California. In
I Nevada he hits 100,000 acres which are tle
i voteil to cattle raising, as It another enor
I mous tract In Tesas. Near Soledad, Oil.,
ho owns u farm of 15,000 acres, a magulll
ceut property and one of the llnest In the
; Htato. At the topof tho WashltiKtou street
hill, tho highest point in Sin KriincNeo, is
tho homo of tlio Dumphys. It commands
a vluw of tho wholu city and tho bay, and
1 Is surrounded by a splendid deer park.
Mr, Dumphy was born In Ireland, while
his wife Is a native of Miuny Spain. This
perhaps accounts In a measure for Miss
j Dumphy's dark rich beauty and for her
I wonderful musical taste. Sho lias a splcu-
did soprano voice, and Is an expert pcr
; former on the piano, giitur and mandolin.
I Among her many other accomplishments
may bo noted a thorough knowledge of
German, Spanish and French, 'icrfect free
dom in tho water and a firm seat on horse
' hack It is even said in the latter connec
tion that she went with her father to one
of the cattle round ups at Soledad, and
that she distinguished herself there both
as a horsewoman and a thrower of the
i lariat.
i Miss Kmlly llagar Is the daughter of the
Into Senator llagar, of California. Her
mother was a fatuous St. Imis belle in
antu-lclluni days, and Miss Hagar inherits
her glorious Issauty and exqulMto grace of
manner, Her eyes are dark ami melting,
anil her luxuriant hair is of a rich brown.
She Is full of esprit ami a daring wit.

"Kmlly llagar can sa the most auda
cious thlnu's in the most gutless way I ever
saw," said a gilded youth, who was be
wildered by a sharp retort, delivered ill the
soft voice and sweet maimer peculiar to
MIkh Hngar,
Miss llagar is also a highly accomplished
young woman. She is a thorough mind
clan, an expert equestrienne, an amateur
artist of ability and speaks several lan
guages. She Is said to bo the host dancer
in San Francisco.
Miss Hlsscll is a vivacious, light hearted,
merry eyed girl, with red gold hair, a rose
leaf skin, a pair of megnltlcent shoulders
and a glance that works untold havoc in
tho hearts of susceptible youths. Shu is
young and graceful and gracious. Sho Is a
Midas in petticoats as fur as money goes,
and she enjoys life immensely. Sho says
sho has such a good time that sho cannot
make up her mind to give up single blessed
ness, and sho horrifies her friends by in
istlng that it is her fixed determination to
die an old maid, The melancholy swains
who are always In her train look desperate
at this announcement, but sho only smiles
at their discomfiture and goes on laughing
her way through the world. All these
girls are native born Callforiilans, and de
votedly attached to the land of sunshine
which gave them birth.
