The school statistics of San Francisco
show that the native clement is gaining
in that city. Of all the children in the
city 20,904 are the children of native
parents; 14,874 are of mixed parentage
and 48,216 of foreign parentage. The
number of foreign-born children is only
888. In 1880-81 the figures stood as
follows: Children of native parentage,
15,653; of mixed parentage, 10,440, and
of foreign.parentage, 50,238. The in
crease this year in the children of native
parents is in round numbers 20 per
cent.; in.tho children of mixed parent
age, 40 percent., with a decrease of 4
per cent, in the children of foreign par-,
entage. Not long ago the children of
foreign parentage were two to one of

morning, Judge Sharp, a leading citizen of
this place, arose from his bed, dressed and

ever since January last. At breakfast he
complained of having a poor appetite, tell
ing his wife that he cared for nothing.
After the family had finished the meal the
Judge got up from his seat at the table and
started to go up stairs. His wife followed
him, she having a slight suspicion that the
long continued illness might liavt
some effect on his mind and might
lead him to take some terrible step. She
asked him if he did not' want to lay down
on the sofa, which he said he would do.
and then continued on his way up stairs
