Only a few hundred feet away
from the Cliff House arc the world
famous Sutro Baths which cost up
wards of a million and a quarter
dollars. Visitors who have seen
the famous baths of the World
unite in proclaiming Sutro Baths
the finest and most extensive to be
found anywhere. There is a seat
ing capacity of 15,000 and swim
ming accommodation for 2,000
bathers. On a level with the main
entrance is the Sutro Museum,
plied by an engineer's use of the
ocean wave. A basin, scooped out
of the solid rock, receives the water
that dashes over the top; thence it
is conducted to a settling tank from
which by numerous small canals it
makes its way into the various
tanks, the largest of which, some
450 ft. long, contains the sea water
in its normal condition, while the
others arc heated to various tem
peratures. Besides, there is a pump
ing plant, which is used when the
tides arc too low. Some idea of the
service of the different kinds may
be obtained from the following:
Time required to fill tanks by
waves, 1 hour.
Time required to fill tanks by
pumping, 5 hours.
The Baths arc 499 feet long by
254 feet wide, and nothing has been
neglected in the construction of the
great building that could give se
curity or add comfort to the visitor.
Among other noted bathing es
tablishments where one may enjoy
salt water bathing, may be men
tioned the Lurline Baths on Bush
and Larkin Sts Crystal Baths,

Taking the train at Third and
Townsend Sts., (or crossing the
Ferry, foot of Market St., and
thence by train) 011c is taken
through San Mateo County, where
are located many private parks and
country residences of San Fran

of the prettiest towns in California.

As one ascends by easy grades to
the summit of Mt. Hamilton, a suc
cession of views is obtained that
lingers long in the memory.
Continuing on from ban Jose,
Monterey (four hours from San
Francisco) is reached. A visit to
California would be incomplete
without a trip to Monterey with its
picturesque scenery of shore ami
sea, its Old Missions and beautiful
bay and beach. Monterey is the
chief watering place in the State,
although Santa Cruz, somewhat
nearer to San Francisco but on the
same railroad, enjoys a large share
of patronage. The scenery around
Santa Cruz is everywhere pleasing
and enjoyable. The deep canyons
of the hills back of the town afford
delightful excursions, while the big
tree groves of the hills is one of the
scenic features. Santa Cruz can
also be reached by the Coast
steamers which make regular trips.
Palo Alto, 50 minutes from the
city, is the site of the great Stan
ford University. At Berkeley, dis

"The Yosemitc Valley, only 36
hours from the city, affords an ex
cursion which every visitor to ban

a week, as the convenience of the
visitor permits, can be profitably
spent in this wonderful valley, so
full of all that is beautiful and pic
turesque in natural wonders.
Sausalito, San Rafael, Napa, Mill
Valley, each arc delightful trips
within a couple of hours of San
Francisco. The Mount Tamalnais
Scenic Railway commences at Mill
Valley and ascends the mountain
near by, attaining an elevation of
2,604 feet, affording a magnificent
