niino tho total yield of our grapevine..
It ii iinj)o-sible to ustiniatu the quan
tity of grapes eonsuniod as table fruit.
Dt'.riug the fall season they are to bo
seen on every table in California, and
and it is iinpo-siblo to form oven a eon
jeoture as to the number of pounds or
tons which are oaten at Los Angeles,
Santa Crtu, San .lose, Oakland, Sacra
mento, Stockton, Santa l!o-a, lied Hlufl,
Tehama, and tho other eities of the
State, to say nothing of villages and
farm houses. One denier told a Call
reporter that San Francisco had been
consuming for some time and would eon
sumo for .soino tinio to come,.'), 000 twenty-pound
boxes a day of table grapes.
If this consumption lat Mtvdas, it,
must absorb li, 000, 000 pounds' or :!,0()0
tons of grapes. At tho same rate tho
consumption of tho whole State would
bo something like 10,000 tons; but. in
the country, whero animal foot! is more
sparingly used than here, tho consump
tion of grapes must be larger.
Ilcsidcs the table grapes which havo
beuu consumed here, a largo quantity
h:us been shipped East. Here again
tlierc is ;diiruHilly in getting accurate
figures, as tho fruit trains havo been
generally dispatched from interior
points and havo not come to San Fran
cisco at all. It is understood that
about 1.000 carloads of grapes havo
gone forward from Sacramento. Va
caville has probably dispatched f)00.
and perhaps .r00 more have been scut
from San .Jose, San Francisco, Los An
geles, and other pointy. Altogether
we havo probably sent to the East this
year 2,000 carloads or 20,000 tons of
The raisin product is protty accurate
ly know n. Wo shall produce this year
about fiUO.OOO twenty-pound boxes of
raisins, as against l'('i0,000 boxes pro
duced last year. Thoy will not net as
much money, in proportion; last year,
owing to tho cholera scare, many East
ern consumers took California raisins
in picferouco to Spanish raisins; and
of course, if wo double our product
now, wo must expect tho price to fall
oil". Hence tho beit London lnyors are
now selling at .1.50(r,$1.75 per box, as
against SS-ty,$H. 2,ri Inst year, and seed
less .sultanas at $l(f$L:K. as against
Sl.flO last year. To ascertain the quan
tity of grapes dried us raisins wo must
multiply tho pounds of raisins by three,
as it takes three pounds of 'rapes to
make ono pound of raisins. Thus, to
make tho 10,000,( 00 pounds of raisins
wiucli wo havo lor sale this year, it
consumed ilO.000,000 pounds, or lfi.OOO
ions 01 grapes.
iMiially, in consequence of tho failure
of congress to pass tho sweet wino bill
makers of sweet winos in tho southern
counties aro tinding it cheaper to make

FEW GOOD JUDGES OF CIGARS.
Work of tin litingttintlotl
MiioUliu V ii Old Doctor
A tall young man of rather iludiph
appearance was leaning on the cigar
case in an old-established Broadway
tobacco store talking to tho owner,
when a reporter entered. Tho young
man had evidently been there for
some time, and had said a great deal
niorO than his listener cared to hear.
There was a look of weariness and im
patience upon thu proprietor's intelli
gent face, which gave way to one of
relief as ho turned to wait on sovoral
new customers who came in with thu
reporter. Ho attended to the wants of
eaclt with such apparent deliberation
that tho young man, seeing there was
little chance of his being able to rcsumo
the conversation, or monologue, for
some time, buttoned his short overcoat
and started out.
"That young fellow will forco me to
bounce I1.111 yet," sasd thu cigar man as
coon as tho loquacious customer had
departed. 'lIo has been coming in
here for the last month about three
times a week for a li-conter,' nnd
each time ho stops and talks about as
long as ho can about how his cigar
smoked, and how that one did not suit
him, and how ho could toll a good cigar
on sight, and till that sort of thing, un
til I am ready to fall asleep."
"Von do not consider him 11 connois
"Well, I should say not. A compe
tent judge of cigars is hard to find.
Tho longer I am in thu business the
more I am convinced that there is no
article in the world which men think
they know so much about, but in reali
ty know so little of, as a cigar. 1 feel
perfectly safo in tho saying that not
one man in a hundred can tell a good
cigar when lie sees it, or even when liu
smokes it. Oh, of course, you smokers
won't admit tills to bo trito, but it is.
all the same. Don't imagine that 1
havo an exalted opinion of" my knowl
edge of tho subject. I havo boon in tho
business ovar twenty years, and yet I
would not venture to assert with any
degree of assurance whether a cigar
was a domestic or an Havana.
"Tho imagination works almost as
extensively in tho smoking of 11 cigar
as il docs in tho construction of a novel.

lie Picked Up 11 Pin.
On ono fine day a Scrigglesvillo man
camo to town w.lh a pailful of clams,
which he sold. Then, washing out tho
pail carefully, ho had a gallon of mo-
lassos poured Into It and started for
homo. Fooling tho weight of his bur
den, ho put a stick through the pail and
hung the pail over his shoulder. Pres
ently, jogg ng along in an abstracted
manner, the Scrlgglbsvlllo man espied
a pin in tho road, and, being of a fru
gal turn, he stooped over to pick It tip.
This seemed to the molasses to bo as
good a chance as it could find, nnd it
promptly stepped it of tho pall and
walked over tho back of thu Sorig"-loH-
llo man's neck. "Good heavens!"
gasped the Scrigglesvillo man. as ho
struggled to his fojt and viewed tho
lovastation wrought upon thu scenery,

The casual visitor to any of tho city
police courts never fails to bo impress
ed witli the very large number of wom
en who form a part of tho audience.
The presence in a polico court of nny
ono not compelled by business or law
to bo there is strange enough anyway
since il is very seldom that a word of
the proceedings before the justico is au-dihle-a
fool beyond the rail ng which
separates tho public from the court.
Tho seventy-five or one hundred men
who gather in tho courts every day
may bo attracted by vulgar curiosity,
I no shelter and tiie comfortable scats,
or by interest in thu fate of some pris
oner. No such motives draw tho wom
en thither. They are thero because
they want warrants. As soon as tho
regular business of tho session is
through with tho court olllcer bawls:
"All thoso wishing warrants this way,"
and two long lines of women, somo
with bandaged heads and blackened
eyes and other evidences of domestic
amusements, file ono by ono before his
honor and relate their griefs. Most of
them want their husbands arrested for
beating or failing to support thorn,
though occasionally ono appears who
has some other kind of a wrong to re
port. "Ninety-Iivo out of every hundred
women who apply for warrants want
their husbands arrested.'" sa d a clerk
of ono of thu down-town courts, "and
nine out of every ten either withdraw
tho charge or pay tho lino after thoy
gain their desire and their lords aro
arrested. Every week almost every
day wo havo some woman hero who
has been beaten half to death by her
husband and then forgives him anil
wants to get him oil" before ho can bo
punished. The other day wo hail such
a case, where tho woman had been all
but killed by her bruto of a husband,
who, it was proved, was a terror to tho
neighborhood. The wife and a half
dozen of Uio neighbors testified against
him, and lie was lined $10. In tho
afternoon h h wifo stepped up and paid
thu line rather than see him go lo the
island. Sho hadn't a cent in tho world,
but had gouo around and borrowed
from tho other women who lived in tho
neighborhood until she had mado up
tho sum. That very night her hus
band got drunk again nnd blackened
her other eye for her. There's no toll
ing what length a woman's devotion to
a man will take her.
you never catch an old policeman
arresting a man on his wife's com
pla nt unless ho has to" said tho gray-
ha.rcd court ollicer, whoso six stripes
on his sleeve testilied that ho know
what ho was talking about, "nor mix
ing up in any family quarrel either.
They know too well that thoy aro a
goop ileal more likely to get themselves
into a snap than do anybody any good.
I mind ono tinio that I got a broken
head over on tho cast sale for doing
that. I was young ami fresh then. I
was passing along the street when I
heard a regular tenement row going on
in thu top story of the house. J rushed,
up thu stairs and, there was a bigv
drunken truckman with ono hand m.
his wife.s back hair, lamming her with
a cart-rung. I juuipud on tho man
and knocked him down, but tho wom
an was up in a minute and sent ma
spinning with a llatirou. Then both
jumped on me, and before help camo
thoy nearly pounded tho life out of mo.
Wo got them both totho station, but tho
woman refused to testify against hoi
husband, and both got thirty days for
resisting an oflicor." "Sometimes it
works tlio oilier way," put in tho clerk.
"Wo had a case hero onu day this week:
of a husband who got a warrant for
his wife's arrest for habitual drunken
ness. Sho was sent up for thirty days,
chiefly on his testimony. Tho uoxt
tiny ho camo In. crying liko a baby, and
wanted bis wife released, for ho said
ho couldn't live without her. But it
was too late. Sho had boon received
