EENT'S first fortnight has passed very much as have its predecessors in the years gone dv, as tar as the social world of San Francisco is concerned. The fashion of the hour carried to perfection is to do pretty much as usual, but to do it in the name of the social affairs of small magni tude. There have been luncheon parties, teas, readings and every kind of social frivolity ex cept dancing. It is a blessing for the society devotees to rest from the ex ertions of the season, and to go in for nothing but light conversation, tea and wafers— it is a blessing and a rest indeed. But it all may be taken by the ultra-religious as deference to the church calendar and a desire to reipect at least, if not to observe, the peni tential period, but the experienced social ob server knows that it is a reaction from the rush of the season. So the church has made it pos sible for one to cease social expenses and obey duty for a time,, and, therefore, Lent may be called society's Sunday. Society's wh...

24 Books and Bookmakers A Son of Hagar. Now that the "Heavenly Twins" are rele gated to the limbo whence they never should have been extracted ; that "Trilby" md he left foot are fading into the literary Nirvana, and "Marcella" is withdrawing her tiresome personality from our pres ence, we shall probably have a brief spell in which to take breath before we enter upon another novelistic orgie. We .shall also have opportunity to look about us, so to speak, and to note, with the way cleared, a bit, of literary debris, who really remain standing among the various novelistic idols the reading world has set up in the last year or two. Prominent among these remaining figures perhaps the man most clearly pre destined to a permanent place is Mr. Hall Came. While he has been a notable figure since ever he first arose above the literary horizon, Mr. Came has never been popular in the sense in which a dozen other writers have been popular in the past five years. Even "The Manxman" was not usher...

THE DISCOVERY AT A BANK. Glee of the Aged Agriculturist Turns to Grief When He Discovers the Truth. LODI, March 24.— Jacob Brack, a wealthy old land-owner, living near Brack's Land ing, listened to the soft words of three strangers, last Thursday, succumbed to their winning ways, and as a result they have |2000 of Jacob's shining gold and he has two tin boxes of n>ck«— just plain, or dinary rock* from the roadside, and Jacob is now a wiser, but a sadder man. Two well dressed dignified strangers came to Lodi last Thursday and inquired the road to Brack's Landing, near which Jacob Brack, an old settler, the projector of the deep water canal to Lodi, heavy land-owner and shrewd man of business resided. They represented themselves as J. S. Curtin, ex-Superior Judge of Alameda County, and C. H. Ferguson, an...

2 NAPA, A THRIVING MANUFACTURING CENTER, Its Tanneries, Woolen- Mills and Glove Factories. THE HOME OF INBSJSTBY. Products of the Loom and Vat That Are Famous the World Over. A FUTURE FULL OF PROMISE 1 Its Transportation Facilities Are Excellent and Its Advantages Manifold. NAPA, March 24. — If the indolent tribe of Indians who gave this valleythe name of Napa were here to-day their sleep would be disturbed by the hum of machinery which is making of this shire town of Napa Ckmnty a manufacturing center. The industry that stands out most prominently is that of glove-leather tanning and wool-picking, which is carried on under the name of the Sawyer Tanning Company. Some of us wear gloves all our lives without knowing the many processes through which the skins pass before they come made up in gloves to our hands. The Call's correspondent could not have found a more extensive and complete place to gain knowledge than at the works of the Sawyer Company, which occupies three blocks, and i...

LOWERS A. WORKD'S WHEEL RECORD, Allan Jones' Sprint on the New Cement Track at San Jose. SUNDAY MATINEE EVENTS. A Rumor That Ziegler May Be Expelled From the Road Club. SAX JOSE, March 24.— San Jose was the scone of some excellent bicycle races to-day, both on the track and road, and that the new cement track of the Garden City Cyclers is all that has been claimed for it was attested by the fact that in the lirst race run upon it .Allan Jones broke a world's record in the handicap sprint, distance one-third of a mile, going in 41' 1-5 seconds. Wheelmen from all about Pan Jose headed for that city Saturday, the major in coming from Ban Francisco to attend the great "smoker" Saturday night, which was a grand success in every particular. Late hours were kept, but all were up to see the San Jose Road Club's 5-mile han tlicap roadrace at 10:30 o'clock, as it was known a great effort was to be made by McFarland to lower the record. That he did not succeed was due to the poor condition of ...

10 HIS BODY IS TURNED TO STONE. The Remains of Mrs. Fair's Father, Thomas Rooney, Petrified. • NOW AT CALVARY CEMETERY. Action of Silica or Lime the Probable Cause of the Transformation. Down at Holy Cross Cemetery, in San Mateo Count}', there is an imposing mauso leum waiting for the reception of the earthly remains of Mrs. Theresa Fair and her family, and probably no other tomb in all America will have the distinction with which it is destined to be marked. At present there are the remains of four persons to be laid in the vaults of the gran ite mausoleum. Ono of them is petrified, and so preserved by the secret processes of nature that its form is true to life, and no doubt will remain so long as the stone re sists disintegration. This is the extra ordinary distinction that will cling to the magnificent family tomb that has just been finished in Holy Cross Cemetery— one full of interest for the scientific mind and as tonishment for the public. The petrified remains are those of T...

SAN BERNARDINO.; March 25.]— At Brookside, a beautiful little town nine miles southeast of here, David McCoy went to sleep soon after midnight Sunday. It was big final sleep. If he had lived six ■weeks longer he would have completed his one hundred and fifth year. He had been confined to his bed six weeks, but was not ill. He suffered neither ache nor pain. During the week he had grown perceptibly weaker, but the final summons came with out the slightest warning. At his bedside were his daughter, Mrs. W. T.

4 THE OTHER DOGS BEAT LUCKY DOG Third in the Field of Three Was the Best He Could Do Yesterday. STARTED A 3 TO 10 FAVORITE. Imp. Miss Brummel Downed Good- Sized Field of Youngsters. The racing at the track yesterday was attended by the usual dumps and upsets attendant to racing of late, the ?tar fall of the day being that of Lucky Dog, the giant son of Darebin, who went to the post a 3 to 10 favorite in the fifth race, at six furlongs, with but three starters, and finished third. Midas, Don William's Chicago Derby candidate, was second choice in the race with 3% to 1 against him, imported Thorn being the 30-to-l outsider. When the flag fell Lucky Dog at once went to the front, leading Midas three lengths as they passed the half. Rounding the far turn Isoni began crawling up on the favorite with the second choice, and was but a length and a half in the rear as they entered the stretch. An eighth from home Lucky Dog hung out signals of distress, for ( "arr was seen to be riding him, b...
