Grapes aro t'onsumod s tatik fruit, as raisins, and in the Miau of brauilv, as woll as in tho sltapu of vitH All tlii'so niut bo added tojotlior to dotor 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 table grapes. 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 brandy direct in Los Angeles and other southern count es tins year, which, had C ongress passed tho bill, would havo made its appearance as sweet wine These !100. 000 gallons of brandy, which aro ciiuivalent to 1.200.000 gallons of wine, will consume about 10,000 tons of jrapos. Wo can now sum up. To understand tho calculation it must bo remembered that it ton of grapes is supposed to yield ElO gallons of wino; thus by iiivming 1110 wino product by i;iu wo arrivo at tho result in tons. Tho grapo produce of California 1885 would thus seem to havo boon follows.

IWalvoisio grapes can bo bought at $1 1 por ton. hnch tablo grapes as tho Mils eatel, tho Black Hamburg, tho Rose of Peru, tho Corniohon, lluctiiato in the market according to demand, selling as low, when thoy aro ubundanr, as ,'10 cents a box, or $.'10 a ton, and as high. when thoy aro scarco and very lino, as SI a box or 8100 a ton.

FEW GOOD JUDGES OF CIGARS. Tin Work of tin litingttintlotl In MiioUliu V ii Old Doctor ( onfehsloit, 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 seur, then?" "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. 1 have proven this to my own satisfac- t. on again and again. Sometimes, just for Hie fun of the tiling. I nut a lew two-for-a-quartors' in tho o-cont-bo.x and then watch tho look of disgust that comes over the faces of tho patrons of mat. oox as tnoy ugni these expensive brands. Sometimes they will actually tnrow 1110 nioro costly cigars away. On the other hand, I've seen thu 'two for-n-quarlor' customer enjoy tho aroma of a 'A-ceul straight,' wh cli for a joke I had put in his favorite box. 'J lie popularity of a certain cigar dopends upon tho smoker's liking for that tiavor.

A sampio ono is a Pennsylvania filler and a Ha van 11 seed or Sumatra wrapper. An honest 10-cent cigar is made up of Connecticut, Pennsylvania, or Wiscon sin binder witli an Havana filler and Havana or Sumatra wrapper. Havana seed is the seed of Havana tobacco grown in this country. A mild form of imposition is lo mix tho Havana filler with domestic tobacco. Few smokers or dealers know tho diflercnoc. There is no business In which a good name is worth more than In mine. A plnco mat uas 1110 reputation of Handling good stock can sell almost anything, J'asto in cigars Is most deceptive, and a uozon men would have as many dif ferent opinions on thu same weed. Hence It Is almost impossible to sell ci gars on their mcr ts. Many aro sold s.mply ou tho advertising thoy ro coive." New Yorh Tribune. 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, "a gallon of molasus for a niu." This teaches us never to throw away a cer tainty for an uncertainty. Rockland (.lc.) Courier.

To-I)ny Tlioy Ilnvo Tlielr Tlitibntida Arrested mid To-.Morrow Tlicy Seelc 'l'liclr Itelcnnc. 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 on thu Island."
