it Mr. T. P. O'Connor, wife of the
Irish M. P. This panegyrist finds
American women bewitching in their
delicate yet dashing beautr, and in
their girlhood, particularly at the age
of seventeen, altogether lovely. No wo
men of any continent, in Mrs. Connor's
opinion, can compare with ours.
Thus the tributes continue to come.
Of all risiting celebrities who nave com
mented on the American girl none save
only the Gaekwar of Baroda has named
her but to praise. The Daisy Miller
days are past and forgotten.
But why all these bouquets for
American womanhood and not even a
solitary bontonniere for the American
man? Is H not he who by ranking her
only a little lower than the angels and
respecting her slightest wfch has made
ber what she is? He pays the golf
club dues and the riding-academy bills
which give the American girl her splen
did physique. The bunch of violets in
ber corsage is his gift, as are the gowns
which make her the best dressed of
women, the jewels she wears, ber mat

at the seashore. In what other con

SAN FRANCISCO'S UPLIFT-
According to the bulletin of progress
published by the California Promotion
company, September hag been a not
able month in the progress of San
Francisco toward recovery from the ef
fects of the big fire. Railroads enter
ing the State report .that traffic has
increased enormously, both on colonist
and tourist tickets. Labor supply is
atill inadequate. The population of the
city is placed at 370,000. Cost of liv
ing, excepting rents, is about the same
as before the fire. During September,
1,050 building permits were issued.
Bank clearings reached the amount of
$198,712,503.47. In September, 1905,
$168,329718.22, showing an increase of
18.04 per cenfl. Thirty-five thousand
men are doing construction work and
thousands more could be used. It is
unfortunate that there are inadequate
school facilities. Every school build
ing in the city is crowded to the lira
its, and there are 15,000 more children
ready to enter. In the rehabilitation of
the various departments of the munlci
; pal life the schools appear to have been
'overlooked. It i a matter of real im
portance that the children should be
sent to school, and temporary -quarters
should be provided as soon as possible.
On the whole, the recovery of the
city is reassuring, and if capital would
not wage war on capital by raising the
club of exorbitant rents, thus driving
back the large and email business con
cerns, the rehabilitation of the city
would progress faster in spite of the
jyolitical conditions, which produce a
far-reaching sense of distrust among in
vestors and citizens. S. F. Bulletin,

Cheerfulness is a tonic, a nerve food,
a beauty potion,' a re-jiivenator and
transfiguring agent for all the troubles
of humanity. Habitual cheerfulness is
but a step removed from habitual hap
piness, and to be habitually happy
means to get the best out of life no
matter what happens, to surmount
troubles in the easiest manner, and to
help and encourage all with whom one
comes in contact.
