years ago when a Mexican woman
went shopping she remained in her
carriage in the street and sent her
servant into the store to call one of
the clerks to wait upon her. He came
out and received her orders and
brought the goods to her for examina
tion. This peculiar method of shop
ping was due to the old Mexican idea
that a lady of good family should
shield herself from the gaze of the
public, and, in fact, from every one
except her immediate relatives and
most intimate friends. This idea
has been dying hard for over a cen
tury, and it is still far from being
completely buried in some parts of

Citizens Make Marvelous Progress in
the Work of Restoration.
New Buildings, Finer Than Those Destroyed by the
Earthquake and Fire, Goins Up on Every Side—
“City Beautiful** a Matter of Time.
San Francisco.—One of the world s
great sights is San Francisco. Cities
have been ruined and ashes have
covered them, but never before un
der modern conditions. A city ruined
by earthquake and fire in the old
days meant that the time of recovery
would equal the age of the city up to
the hour of its destruction. In this
age the very evidences of destruction
are turned into agencies of repair and
improvement. Fire has rarely failed
to bring about better conditions in a
city, and San Francisco is no excep
tion to the rule. It is not the im
provement of the city that will make
them marvel, however, as much as
the rapidity with which the work
will be accomplished.
The earthquake of April 18 caused a
few million dollars’ damage—possibly
$10,000,000 would cover that loss. The
fire, which had full play after the
quake had broken the water mains,
burned over 514 squares, or 2,560
acres, or four square miles, the total
loss being estimated at $500,000,000.
On this property there was insurance
amounting to about $315,000,000. Of
this insurance about $150,000,000 had
been paid in cash to policyholders up
to September 15.
The fire, as everybody knows, de
stroyed the business district of San
Francisco, but left the shipping and
residence districts intact. Commerce
continued without interruption, ex
cept such incidental disturbances as
the location of new storage places and
the accumulation of freight. Thou
sands of people left the city immedi
ately after the disaster, but compe
tent authorities estimate that 98 per
cent of these refugees have returned.
Their homes being intact they find
that San Francisco is the place for
them, after all, and they are turning
to rebuild the city, either with their
capital or their labor.
Bringing Order from Chaos.
When the fire died down on April
21, the people of San Francisco were
confronted with mighty problems,
some of them demanding instant solu
tion. As this article deals with the
San Francisco of the future and not
of the past, it is not neecssary to go
Into details regarding the remarkable
ability shown by the committee of fif
ty in providing for the wants of the
hungry and shelterless, writes Ira E.
Bennett, in the New York Press. That
is a story by itself, and a most inter
esting and inspiring one. Another
pressing problem, however, was that
of clearing the streets in order that
communication might be restored.
Thirty-six miles of streets were piled
high with debris. Within five months
this enormous mass of material has
been removed, trolley wires have been
strung, street car traffic reestablished
and a system of debris removal inau
gurated which disposes of 100 car
loads a day. If more labor were to
be had the work would go much
Admission day was celebrated this
year on Monday, September 10. I saw
the city on that day for the first time
since the disaster. The scene was
appalling. With the exception of a
worker here and there, the destroyed
district was destitute of laboring men.
Ruins, ruins in every direction, as far
as the eye could see; millions of tons
of bricks and mortar piled up in half
destroyed basements; a strong breeze
blowing dust and a3hes everywhere;
writhing steel beams and crumbling
granite marking the sites of once im
posing buildings, anil the very thought
of bringing order out of chaos suffi
cient to stagger the imagination.
On the next day a far different pic
ture was preesnted. In every base
ment was a gang of workmen. They
struggled with girders, piled brick,
sifted good material from refuse, han
dled pick and shovel, mixed mortar
and loaded wagons with debriB. Thou
sands of busy hands were to be seen
down every street. Thousands of
teams went about on the simultane
ous task of removal and reconstruc

The first line of that is what makes a hit with me. There is about
ten feet more of the same two-step style of word coupling, and it came
to me through the mails from a Persian prince who had his private yacht
in the harbor at the time that I was uncovering the water front “water
grafts,” and I happened to be in a position to help him get his daily
supply of water on board without having to pay extra toll for it.
He sent me a letter of thanks when he sailed, and after he got over
in his own election district he se^t m« this jig-time string-of philosophy,
which I take as a compliment, inasmuch as it was especially translated
for me.
A letter from the prince’s secretary accompanying it tells me that
it was written many years ago by a near relation of that fellow, Omar
Khayyam, who the historians say was a tent-unaker who wrote poetry
for the magazines that the clown fellows read to the criminal rich when
they were having beefsteak parties along about the time that they were
teaching Cleopatra to use a nursing bottle.
The thing about it that strikes me most forcibly is that you can’t
put any twist on the truth that will make it any stronger now than it was
when those chaps were writing philosophy without the aid of a typewriter
and interviewers to give them a boost.

The quake shook the life out of
some old firms and hastened the birth
of many new ones. Dozens of stores
bear the names of men who were
clerks before April 18. Merchants
from other cities have stepped in and
established houses here. Competition
is keen, and money appears to be
more plentiful than for many years.
The financial soundness of San
Francisco has been, demonstrated in
various ways. The bank clearings
are much larger than before the fire.
Some of the new money comes from
insurance companies, of course, but
not all of it. The business of the
banks is greater than ever. In some
of them withdrawals exceed deposits,
but the money withdrawn is going
into reconstruction. Other banks are
piling up deposits. The other day a
little flurry was caused by an attempt
ed run on the Hibernia bank, one of
the largest institutions in the coun
try. It was a grotesque failure as a
bank run. The bank has 80,000 ac
counts, receiving no deposits ex
ceeding |3,000. It is reckoned as sol
Id as the treasury. A few frightened
women formed a line, obtained their
money and then returned and depos
ited it. With this exception public
confidence in the banks has been ab
The scarcity of skilled and un
skilled labor is the chief drawback to
rapid construction. Wages are ex
orbitantly high, but this Is the fault
of contractors and proprietors rather
than of the labor unions. The plumb
ers and stationary engineers thought
they saw a chance to get rich quick,
and raised their scale, but were not
sustained by the labor council, which
is an amalgamation of all the unions,
and the old wages were restored. But
the owners of buildings which were
nearing completion at the time of the
disaster are feverish in their anxiety
to complete their buildings and obtain
famine rentals, and their tactics in
raising the wages of workingmen
have caused labor prices to soar. On
this emergency work plasterers are
getting $9 to $11 a day; bricklayers,
$10 a day; carpenters, $7 and $8;
stonemasons, $8 to $10, and other
skilled labor In proportion. San Fran
cisco is a paradise for a workingman.
Unskilled Labor in Demand.
Unskilled labor is hard to find. The
city needs 20,000 skilled men and
could employ 30,000 unskilled labor
ers. Some of the shrewder unskilled
men have clubbed together and form
ed little companies of their own. They
take a contract to remove debris for
a price, and perform the workgduring
the noon hour and in the night. As
unskilled labor is getting $4 a day,
these willing workers who put in
extra time are getting more money j
than they ever saw before. In much
of the burnt district work is carried ;
on by electric light.
Will San Francisco ever be rebuilt?
is the question asked by people in
the east. The answer is, that San i
Francisco is now being rebuilt. It is ;
not a question of the distant future. '
The process is visible to the naked j
eye. Every steel building that was \
under construction at the time of the j
disaster is being rushed to comple- :
tion. Other buildings have been con- I
tracted for, and with the removal of |
debris and the arrival of materials
the work will proceed. Nothing could j
be more absurd than to doubt the re- j
covery of San Francisco from its j
great misfortune, in the face of the 1
work that is actually in progress. |
The contract for the reconstruction of
the Palace hotel on its old site, on
a grander scale than ever, has been
let The St. Francis is now complet
ing its great steel annex. Business
houses are arranging to build newer
and stronger structures than those
which succumbed to the conflagration
of April 18 to 21. The city will not
be rebuilt in a day, or a year, but it
will go up with a remarkable quick
“City Beautiful” Must Wait.
There has been much talk of a “city
beautiful,” with winding avenues
about the hills, broad boulevards, park
extensions, and so on. It was thought
that with the buildings leveled to
the ground the opportunity was open
for the construction of a model mod
em city, uniting utility and beauty to
a degree never yet approached in
America. A little study of the sit
uation shows that this is nothing but
a dream. San Francisco people have
enough on their hands in the way of
getting into business again, in any
shape, without tackling the great
task of forming a city on aesthetic
lines. Here and there a street may
be widened and a little park estab
lished, but in the main there will be
no attempt to reform the plans upon
which the city was built. If it was
difficult before the Are to obtain
united action toward civic betterment,
it is doubly difficult now, when every
man must look out for himself.
The railroads terminating at San
Francisco are among the most potent
forces in rebuilding the city. They
saved San Francisco from panic and
possible greater disaster during the
time of stress by carrying away thou
sands of people, free of charge, and
bringing in emergency supplies.
After the crisis the railroads turned
in and assisted in the removal of
debris. Temporary tracks were laid
and rehabilitation was immensely as
sisted. Merchants ordered big stocks
of goods from the east, and the rail
roads rushed the stuff to San Fran
cisco. There was a time, indeed,
when the stuff piled up to such an
extent as to paralyze the operation
of the roads. Five thousand cars of
freight were congested at San Fran
cisco and Oakland. By heroic ef
forts the lingering freight was dis
posed of and a serious situation re
lieved. Now that the railroads are
able to look after their own business,
they are expending great sums in
permanent improvement, which will
facilitate the reconstruction of the
Insurance Situation Hurt-.
The insurance situation at San
Francisco is exasperating to those
who happened to have policies in
shaky or dishonest companies, but
on the whole the lapses of these com
panies have not affected the city
as seriously as early reports indi
cated. Nearly one-half of all losses
has been paid. Considering the fact
that insurance records, as well as
everything else, went up in smoke,
this is a fairly good showing for five
months. Payments are being made
through the banks at the rate of near
ly $1,000,000 a day. The money goes
into circulation for the most part,
and the resulting activity overshad
ows the fact that hundreds of other
policy holders are waiting for a set
The people of San Francisco per
sonally and through their commercial
organizations, are watching the insur
ance companies with a jealous eye.
Companies that tome to the front
with money are reaping a harvest of
new business, while those which
fought for time or actually repudiated
their obligations in whole or in part
will be made to smart for it.
The chamber of commerce is mak
ing up a list of honest and dishonest
companies. The Calilfornia delegation
in congress will have something to
say on the subject next winter. The
names of defaulting companies are
to be sent broadcast through the
world, and the opinion is universal in
San Francisco that in the long Ain
the defaulting companies will dis
cover that they played a losing game
when they defrauded policy holders of
their rights.
Insurance litigation promises to
become great. Policy holders who
have money enough to fight are not
slow in invoking the aid of the courts.
One or two important cases already
have been decided, but the critical
question is yet to be passed upon.
This question is as to the part played
by the earthquake in causing fire
losses. Policies are variously word
ed, but in the main they provide that
payment shall not be made if the
loss is caused "directly or indirect
ly” by earthquake or other act of
God. Of course, if there had been
no earthquake there would have been
no fire, but the man whose house was
consumed three days after the
quake does not think the indirect
cause is quite close enough to the
effect to justify the insurance com
panies in repudiating all liability.
Show True American Grit.
During the disaster the good humor
and self-possession of San Francis
cans astonished the world. Now, in
the long tug of disposing of the
ashes and rebuilding the city, this
good humor never deserts them, and
they are as confident as though they
were beginning a city for the first
time. There is inspiration in num
bers, comfort in common trouble, and
a spirit of brotherhood that has not
deserted them, although it is not as
marked as it was during times of
danger. The love of good cheer in
the way of eating, drinking and lis
tening to music is as strong as ever.
The climax is a continual tonic, and
invites to hard work. The very size
of their disaster seems to nerve the
San Franciscans to hasten the recon
struction of the new city. They come
very near to boasting when they show
their ruins, and some of them display
a remarkably fresh memory of his
tory by comparing their disaster with
the fate of other cities that have per
ished by earthquake and fire, and
risen again. According to these men,
who cite history while making it,
the only bonfire that excelled San
Francisco's was that which con
sumed- Rome in Nero’s time. The
great fires of London,. Boston, Chi
cago and Baltimore were mere hints
of what a real conflagration can do.
So say these dusty, smiling, tireless
San Franciscans, who revel in the
advertising that their city has ob
tained. Their belief in the speedy
reconstruction of the city is absolute,
and they are backing their belief with
money and energy that balks at

For Luncheon on a Busy Day—Two
Extremely Popular Sandwiches
—Sparkling Lemonade a
Delicious Beverage.
Luncheon Dish for a Busy Day.—
Take three cups of good, well-sea
soned tomato sauce thickened with a
heaping teaspoonful of flour rubbed
Into one of butter, and keep it hot in
a saucepan set at the side of the
stove. Toast slices of bread, butter
them, and spread them on a dish, put
ting a tablespoonful of tomato sauce
on each. Into the remainder of the
tomato sauce turn two cupfuls of
minced mutton, and put the saucepan
over the fire. Stir the mixture until
the meat is thoroughly heated, season
it to taste, and pour it upon the toast.
Potato Luncheon Biscuits. — Boil
eight potatoes and mash them smooth
ly with a little milk, and beat into
them two tablespoonfuls of melted
butter, eight tablespoonfuls of flour,
two of grated cheese, one teaspoonful
of baking powder sifted twice with
the flour, half a teaspoonful of salt
and just a suspicion of cayenne. Mix
these ingredients into a light dough,
with one tablespoonful of cream and
the yolk of an egg, and roll it out half
an inch thick; then cut it into rounds,
and brush it over with the beaten
white of an egg. Bake these in a
quick oven, split them open while they
are hot, and serve them at once.
They will also be found useful for
afternoon tea.
Salmon and Cucumber Sandwiches.
—Cut rounds of bread slighthiy larger
than the slice of cucumber, and spread
them with butter and sprinkle the un
der sides with a few grains of celery
salt, then spread them with a layer
of chopped and pounded salmon.
Next add a few drops of vinegar and
a little white pepper, then a thin slice
of cucumber and the top round of
bread. Garnish the dish with a few
slices of cucumber or crisp lettuce
Egg and Cress Sandwiches.—Rub
several hard boiled eggs through a
sieve and season them with salt, pep
per and lemon juice, and mix them
well together with butter to a rich
paste. Spread white or brown bread
evenly buttered rather generously
with this mixture, then sprinkle one
half with plenty of finely-chopped
fresh cress, and press the pieces to
Lamb’s Tail Soup.—Cut six lambs’
tails into joints, and boil them till ten
der in some weak stock, with a slice
of raw ham or a ham bone. Season
with a little onion, parsley, a bay leaf,
a blade of mace and a few mushrooms.
Simmer slowly for four hours, and
then strain through a cloth. Thicken
the soup with flour, add salt and cay
enne and white. wine to taste. Boil
up, add the pieces of tail, and serve.
To Wake Sparkling Lemonade.—
Some people prefer the effervescence
of the lemon squash beverage, and
often soda water runs short. Spar
kling lemonade may, however, be
made, with the addition of bicarbonate
of soda. Take half a teaspoonful of
the powder, and dissolve it in a glass
of water, adding a little sugar; then,
having squeezed out the juice of a
lemon, add it to this, and a very active
sparkling beverage will result.
Taming a Madman,
A story is going the rounds of the
Belgian press in which it appears that
the mayor of one of the communes of
Augers had ordered a gamekeeper
and a butcher to take a madman
named Legrand to the St. Gemines
lunatic asylum. On the way the
gamekeeper noticed that their charge
was in one of his lucid intervals, and
concluded that he would never con
sent to be handed over to the au
thorities. It was decided therefore
to make him drunk, and all three ad
journed to the nearest inn. Legrand
took his liquor kindly; so did the
others; and when the trio arrived at
the asylum the governor could not
make head or tail of their story. He
therefore wired to the mayor, asking
him which was the man who was to
be detained. The mayor replied: “Le
grand,” but the telegraphist spelled
it in two words, “Le grand” (the tall
one). The governor, on examining
the three men, saw that one was
much taller than the others, so he
promptly helped him into the strait
waistcoat and sent the other two
away. It was three days later before
the error was discovered.
Boston Brown Bread.
There is a new wrinkle in making
Boston brown bread, and that is cake
crumbs in place of wheat flour. The
regular rule calls for one small cup
corn meal, the same amount of gra
ham flour, ditto cake crumbs or wheat
flour, the former much the better.
Mix these dry ingredients together.
Put into a bowl one cup sour milk,
two-thirds of a cup of molasses, a
pinch of salt, and a teaspoonful of
Boda. Stir until the soda stops “purr
ing,” then stir into the dry ingredi
ents. A cup of cut raisins may be
added or not as desired. Many think
them an improvement. Pour into but
tered molds, and steam three hours,
starting with cold water. If a larger
quantity of bread is required, a teacup
Df entire wheat flour is added.
Combining Silk and Cloth.
It is odd to notice how effective Is
the combining of silk and cloth. It
reminds one of the time when taffeta
gowns were trimmed with cloth, a
fashion that was smart and never be
jarae common. Now this reversal of
:he combination, the trimming of
:loth with taffeta, is more popular
sven than that was, and the great
ianger is that it may become too pop
ular, the usual fate of a fashion that
is unusual and worth following. In
light shades as well as In dark this
jtyle of trimming is much in demand.
But the great danger to the inexpert
iressmaker is in the difficulty of get
ting a shade of silk that looks well
ivith the cloth. It is a great mistake
to choose any shade that Is not an
exact match. A color slightly off

Sinking Spells, Headaches and
Rheumatism all Yield to Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills.
Mrs. Lizzie Williams, of No. 410 Ce
dar street, Quincy, 111., says: “Ever
since I liad nervous prostration, about
thirteen years ago, I have had periodical
spells of complete exhaustion. The doc
tor said my nerves were shattered. Any
excitement or unusual activity would
throw me into a state of lifelessness.
At the beginning my strength would
come back in a moderate time after each
attack, but the period of weakness kept
lengthening until at last I would lie
helpless as many as three hours at a
stretch. I had dizzy feelings, palpita
tion of the heart, misery after eating,
hot flashed, nervous headaches, rheu
matic pains in the back and hips. The
doctor did me so little good that I gave
up his treatment, and really feared that
my case was incurable
“ When I began taking Dr. Williams’
Pink Pills my appetite grew keen,
my food no longer distressed me, my
nerves were quieted to a degree that I
had not experienced for years and my
strength returned. The fainting spells
left me entirely after I bad used the
third box of the pills, and my friends
say that I am looking better than I have
done for the past fifteen years.’’
