STRICKEN CITY SPENDS SUNDAY
HUNGEB SPECTER IS BANISHED
Supplies Are Rolling In by Boatloads
and Trainloads Homeless Thou
sands, However, Must Be Fed for
Many Days to Come.
SAN FRANCISCO Had it not beam
for the sight of the rude altars set up
in the open air wherever San Fran
cisco's homeless thousands were
camped one would have some difficult
in finding any of the peaceful associa
tions of the Sabbath in this city.
Everywhere throughout the burned as
well as the remaining section of the
city there was the greatest activity.
Streets were being cleared of debris,
laborers were repairing broken water
pipes, sewers and gas mains, elec
tricians were everywhere seeking to
untangle the alosmt hopeless confusion
of wires in fact San Francisco was
in the first stages of its regeneration.
There are no hungry people here
now; gaunt specter has been ban'shed
by the generous response of the na
tion to the appeals that went out for
assistance. Food by the carload and
by the boatload poured into Oakland
Saturday night and Sunday in suffi
cient quantities to overwhelm the com
mittee which has in charge its distri
bution. So great was the volume of
foodstuffs brought into the general de
oot at Oakland that the general com
mittee made an appeal for skilled la
bor in the handling of these supplies.
Grocers, butchers and commission men
have been requested to secure men
who are familiar in the handling of
food stuffs in order that the confusion
attendant upon the distribution at
the scores of stations established
might go on without confusion.
The homeless people are no longer
obliged to subsist on bread and canned
stuff entirely, as they bad been during
the previous days of their trying exist
ence, but were today given hot coffee,
canned meats and even cakes and
oranges. Oranges have come in In
plentiful supply from southern Cali
fornia and the sight of California's fa
mous product was everywhere hailed
with words of delight
It must be understood by the chari
table people of -the country that there
Is a surfeit of food for the sufferers.
While the supply is abundant at this
writing It is well for the public to re
member that the homeless thousands
must be fed and cared by the or
ganized relief committees for an in
definite period. It is desired therefore
that contributions be continued until
the people who have been rendered
helpless can care for themselves.
EXTENT OF BURNED AREA.
Circumference Figured Out At About
SAN FRANCISCO The Associated
Press representatives Sunday covered
the entire area of the burned section.
The circumference of the area of the
great conflagration is, as near as could
be ascertained by the markings of a
cyleometer, twenty-six miles and com
prises the entire business district and
a large section of the residence dis
trict, all of which was densely popu
lated. It was estimated today by compe
tent insurance authorities that the loss
will aggregate $300,000,000 and on this
vast amount of property the insurance
companies carried approximately $175.
AID FROM EVERY DIRECTION.
Transportation Facilities Taxed
Care for the Amount Offered.
LOS ANGELES. Cal. Three hun
dred and five thousands dollars Is the
sum total subscribed to date in and
about Los Angeles for the San Fran
cisco Bufferers. The individual
amounts are from all sources and
classes, from the millionaire to Chi
nese and Japanese menials, and range
from a few cents to thausands of dol
lars. The money raised is placed in
the hands of the municipal relief com
mittee and is expended for food ship
ments under supervision of the Cham
ber of Commerce.
Suoplies Rolling Westward.
OMAHA All railroads that have
their western terminals here continue
to poor relief supplies into the Omaha
gateway, where they are picked up by
the Union Pacific and whirled on to
the San Francisco earthquake and
fire sufferers at express train speed.
There was no Sunday with the rail
road men of the operating and traffic
departments. They were at their
desks from early morning until late at
night, directing the shipment of stores
that were constantly arriving.
House Hears Eulogies.
WASHINGTON The house con
vened Sunday and listened to eulogies
of the late Representatives George A
Castor and George R. Patterson of
Enough Army Rat'ons.
WASHINGTON Dispatches were
received at the War department Sun
day night from San Francisco sug

from Major Krauthoff. chief commis

charge of relief work, says that it is
not believed that rations other than
those ordered at the present time will
be necessary for issue to the destitute
from the earthquake disaster.

or by their exposure to draughts in a

TERRORS OF THE TEAPOT.
Bye Troubles, Among Other Affec
tions, Result from Tea
Physicians are only beginning to
realize the apparently remote causes
that go to produce a local affliction.
The average layman certainly would
not think of attributing sore eyes to
tea drinking. Yet it has recently been
asserted by one of the physicians of
the New xork Postgraduate medical
school' that a large proportion of the
patients who find their way into tha
eye clinics ewe their trouble to the
teapot which stands always simmer
ing on the tenement house stove.
The tea. of course, does not go di
rectly to the eyes. What actually hap
pens is that persons who drink too
much of it are improperly nourished,
so that when a tiny cinder or speck of
dust breaks through the feeble 'tissues
there follow complications which call
for the skill of the best surgeon. A
host of other ailments, so the post
graduate physicians find, are dae to
the same cause, excessive devotion to
the "cup that cheers but mot inebri
ates." As a matter of sober fact the In
ebriety among confirmed tea drinkers
Is said to be hardly less deadly than
that among tne victims of alcoholism.
As every teacher knows, thousands of
children come to school improperly
prepared for their work because they
have access to the family teapot

Doing Ourselves Good.
Doing nothing for others is the un
doing of oneself. We nust be pur
posely kind and generous, or we miss
the best part of existence. The heart
that goes out of itself gets large and
full of joy. This is the great secret
of the inner life. We do ourselves the
most good doing something fer oth
ers. Horace Mann.
The last naval engagement of the
Civil war was the capture of Fort

The average man usually has an
