The society season of the past year, which has died hard, has never been equaled in San Francisco either in the number or variety of the many private affairs that have taken place. Every week since October opened has been crowded with all manner and degree of frivoliti* Florists, caterers, station* musi cians and the omnipresent dressmaker have all reaped rich harvests, for if beauty will dance the piper must be paid: But human, nature, even the fashionable kind, has its limitations and the wear and tear of a ceaseless round of gayeties will tell Badly on the most highly nourished physique, even though the nerves be fcteel clad.

MONGOLS AND MANCHOOS settlement of the war between China and Japan is likely to result in a decided •in the geography of Asia. So far neither England nor Russia has- made any open claims as to what they want of China, but the ports of Asia are fiill of all sorts of rumors. It is well known that the Rus sians are making their surveys of the har bors on the east coast of Korea, with an idea of making one of them the terminus of the trans-Siberian road, and the latest inside news is that the English have offered the Chinese a large sum of money in exchange for the island of Formosa. China can hardly hope to raise money from her own people without a revolution and the consequent establishment of a Government. The empire, in fact, is and the people neither care for tin- war nor for the Government. In the - of a leading business man of Shang hai, in a letter which I have received dur ing the past week, they consider the trouble with the Japanese the Emperor's on" or business. He has got i...

20 GARDENS OF ROSES Above me, on the mountain-top, my neighbor, the poet, has a garden of roses. He has terraced the mountain for 1200 feet or more, and has converted the terraces into masses of beautiful blossoms. There are red roses, pink roses, white, yellow, and some, indeed, that are almost black. The" humming-birds, the bees, the butter flies all revel in their sweetness. Their fragrance fills the air, and their beauty de lights the eye. I love to go and sit in the garden of my neighbor, the poet. But just below me, in a warm, sheltered nook, where the mountain seems to have sat down and "made a lap" to hold it, my neighbor, the farmer, has also a garden of roses. It covers many acres of goodly brown soil, which he keeps free from every weed or blade of grass that might filch a bit of moisture or food from his garden. Just now, too, it is a r.ia>s oi fragrant bloom, a pink and white sea that tosses and ripples in the breeze, as though the papers were not full of stories of ...

After Leaving: Him She Buys Car bolic Acid and Swallows the Fatal Draught. Sacramksto, March 10.— A young woman named Georgie Montgomery ended her life this morning by swallowing the con tents of a two-ounce vial of carbolic acid at the residence of her parents, 111:; J! Mreet, in this city. The cause of the act is supposed to lie a misunderstanding which she is reported to have had with her lover, who is employed in a down-town barber shop. The girl left her home Saturday evening at 7 o'clock, apparently in the best of spirits. She promised to return at an early hour. About midnight the girl's mother was awakened by her cries for help, and rushing into her daughter's room, found her tossing in agony upon her couch. She asked what was the matter, and was horri fied to learn that the daugh...

YOUNG GIRLS RIOT. Inmates of the Illinois State Home Break Loose. THE MATRON THE CAUSE Thirty-Four Juveniles Hold Full Possession of the Place. THE POLICE CALLED UPON. The Ringleaders Battle and De molish the Furniture In the Room. Chicago, March 10. — Riot broke loose in the Illinois State Home for Juvenile Fe male Offenders on Indiana avenue to night. Thirty-four girls ranging in age from 10 to IS years rose in rebellion against the matron, Mrs. Dayton. Mrs. Dayton and her assistants were powerless to con trol their charges, and were com pelled to shut themselves in rooms to escape their almost frenzied assailants. The girls went through the house breaking furniture and windows, and smashing crockery and everything they could lay their hands on. The police were summoned and restored order, but had no easy time, as the ring leaders fought desperately. Four of the most prominent of the girls were arrested. The troubles arose over the punishment given by Matron Dayton to Mamie Davis,...

4 ROAD-RAGING OF THE WHEELMEN. Cyclers Foster, Terr ill, Wells and Harbottle Develop the Best Time. NO RECORDS WERE BROKEN. The Bay City, Olympic, Califor- j nia, Acme and Reliance Clubs Have Races. That the season of 1895 in cycling will be the greatest year the sport has ever had on this coast was again evidenced yesterday by the crowds of wheelmen and spectators who attended the several road races held over the Fruitvale-Hay wards course yester day. There were five club races in the morn ing, the Olympic Club and Reliance Club wheelmen holding live-mile events, while the Bay City Wheelmen, California Cyc ling Club and Acme Club wheelmen's races were each ten miles in length. Had the course, over which the various races were run, been in good condition, there is no doubt that some records would have been lowered, as almost all the men were trained and the weather was all that could be desired, being cloudy and cool. But the road from Fruitvale to Haywards, and the San Leandro tria...

DEDICATION OF ST. ANTHONY'S. Archbishop Riordan in Full Canonicals Blesses the Edifice. AN INTERESTING CEREMONY. Barefooted Friars and Cowled Monks Assist in the Service. St. Anthony's Church, corner of Folsom and Army streets, was formally dedicated yesterday morning with all the ecclesias tical pomp and ceremony of the ritual of the Roman church. An enormous crowd witnessed the dedication, and the pre caution of issuing tickets of admission to the church proved to have been well taken. The German church societies of St. Paul's, St. Peter's, St. Anthony's and St. Louis' formed a procession at St. Boni face's Church on Golden Gate avenue at 8:30 o'clock. The members turned out in force, and the long line of sturdy sons of the Fatherland, clad in their bright colored regalias, presented an imposing appearance. The procession was headed by Ritzau's band of sixteen pieces and ended with carriages containing the clergy of St. Boniface. The march to Army street was a long one, but the me...
