The Virginia Enterprise says:
The east crosscut from the thirteenth floor on the
1650 level of Con. Virginia is reported to be look

timbers which have been put in at the face show
high-grade ore in all directions, and the upraise
which has been commenced shows that a large
body of good ore has been reached. •
The new strike at the Occidental is in a most
promising condition. The vein has widened out to
ward the north until it has attained a width of four
lei:. This is on the 500 level. Work will be com
menced on Monday running a crosscut to get under
this point on the 550 level. This work will take
over a month, and if ore is struck on this level a
very nice little body will be shown up.

Tiny Javanese Deer.
The ship William H. Macy, 105 days out
from Kobe, Japan, arrived in port on
Saturday night and yesterday was taken
to Uows stores. On board the ship are two
extremely pretty and dainty animals that
Captain Amsbury bought last June while
; going through the Straits of Sunda. off the
coast of Java. They are called Java deer,
; but in spite of their name they are very
: different from the American idea of what
■ a deer should be. They are tiny things,
I standing less than a foot high, with long
, rather heavy bodies covered with thick
i brown hair, supported by legs as slender
; and fragile as pipe stems. The head is
| long and slender, with large brown eves
; and delicate quivering nostrils. Their
hoof are cloven line others of the deer
i family.— New York Sun.

Like stars in a summer sky shines the
well-earned fame of Dr. Price's Baking
Sausalito and Belvedere Are
Enjoying a Spring
Cottagers and Summer Boarders
Already Taking Flight
From the City.
In the spring a young man's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of love, but in
the spring the older man, who owns a lot
at Sausalito or on the splendid heights of
Belvedere, thinks of building a house.
The thrill of great expectations has
entered into the daily life of all the subur
ban resorts adjacent to San Francisco, and
the carpenter and the painter and the
landscape gardener are in eager demand
and are reaping a harvest that they have
not known for some time.
"Every cottage in the place has already
been engaged, I believe, or at least has
been bespoken for the season," said Baron
Ghetaldi of the Marine boathouse of Sausa
lito yesterday, an he ceased a moment from
his labor of building an elevated garden on
the land side of his boathouse. "We ex
pect a full return to good old times this
year. Every indication points to it."
Sausalito is particularly glad and self
satisfied just now in the beach road,
which has been completed after so many
difficulties. They expect to see this de
velop very shortly into a boulevard that
may be compared to anything on earth in
the line of ocean roads. It is already a
main artery that is pulsing with new
blood. All up and down its length are the
signs of spring preparations for a big sum
mer traffic. The beach is strewn with
craft of every kind, indicating their annual
overhauling, while the eyrie palaces and
castles and cottages that stana out from
the face of its precipitous hills are almost
without exception enjoying the same ex
The yacht clubs are trimming their sails
for a particularly big time this year. A
landscape gardener 13 at work on the
grounds of the Pacific Yacht Club, and his
artistic touch has already wrought some
thing in the way of wonders. A way is be
ing opened through the brush to tne rear
of the clubhouse. In addition to this the
clubhouse itself is being "thrown wide
open," so to speak, in the establishment of
new attractions, a billiard-hall and bow
ling alley being only items in the improve
ments under way.
There will be a big blowout shortly to
signalize the "spring opening." A dinner
is in contemplation by the club to Gov
ernor Budd, the date for which has not yet
been fixed, but it will come along within
tne early end of the season in which the
thoughts of young men lightly turn to love.
When Governor Budd came down to the
city some weeks ago to chip little chunks
off the concrete piers at the foot of Market
street and to incidentally look at the sea
wall north and south from a tugboat Dan
Cole, who is a member of the Pacific
Yacht Club, had an inspiration, and after
the inspection had been completed turned
the nose of the tug across the bay and led
the party up the hill to the clubhouse. He
seated them in the general reception-room
and went back in all the confidence of a
mountaineer having 6 feet 4 to his credit,
together with vigorous chin whiskers, to
tell the steward what was expected of him
in the premises. Now this was enter
taining Governors unawares. The steward,
not having been apprised, was at that very
moment over in San Francisco negotiating
for his Sunday supplies. His assistants
were thrown in a state of panic and cried
But Dan Cole lifted up his whiskers and
said there was no hurry. "You've got to,"
he said, and turned on his heel and went
round into the front part of the house to
look for a pin fizz just by way of causing
his guests to forget the flight of time while
the culinary department was working out
its problem, anil they did itanddid it well,
for Dan had said they must.
"But when I came home and learned
what had happened," said Ernest, the
steward, yesterday, "well, I couldn't tell
you how I felt. We boast of our cuisine
here and are really always ready to meet
emergencies, but that was a day that I had
to be away. We have everything in
fine shape here and the next time the Gov-
ernor comes we will show him what we
can do."
The club is making big preparations for
taking part in the regatta next May.
Among the poople already taking up
their summer residences at Sausafito is
John Blanchard and family, who have
taken possession of the Sway cottage.
James B. Gill and family have also gone
into summer quarters.
D. M. IMmas, it is expected, will move
over away from the madding crowd very
shortly, and Dr. Buckley has already made
his arrangements in that direction.
There is a little business transaction now
in progress on this game beach road that
leads the gossips of Sausalito to predict
that William R. Hearst will once again
occupy his palace on the hillside. Pro
jecting over the water in front of his place
has been standing hitherto a little wooden
house of two stories, which used to wear
the name of the Sea Point Oyster Grotto
and to do business as such. r f he business
departed with the Hearst purchase, bat the
house has stood there since. He sola it a
short time ago with the consideration that
it should be moved, and it is now on
wheels climbing an ascent of the road down
toward the yacht club's house. The lease
to the present tenant expires in May, and
it is said it will not be renewed, and that
Mr. Hearst will take up his residence there
for the summer, at least.
Another thing cited as an indication in
this direction is the fact that Mr. Hearst's
private secretary, George Pancoast, has
leased the Collis cottage for the summer.
Over at Belvedere there is already talk
of the neit "Night in Venice" demonstra
tion. Thoy say that it is a certainty, and
that it will eclipse th« affair of last year by
many degrees. The bay is already tilling
up with new and strange shapes in the line
of yachts and arks. One man has placed
four of the old vacated horsecars of the
Market-street company on a float, and lo!
he has an ark. The inhabitants call it
"the octopus."
A new get of new cottages has been
erected in Belvedere during the winter,
two of them by the McLean Brothers for
themselves, for they have put up nearly all
the others and are now engaged on a pre
tentious castle on the very crown of the
hill for Charles O. Perry of "the Columbian
Banking Company. It has been chris
tened "Locksley Hall," for the banker has
quite a poetical turn.
The hall is to be of three stories only,
two of which, however, rise above the
crest of the hill at its very highest point,
the other standing against its steep side.
From the great verandas of Locksley Hall,
stretching clear round its four sides.el even
feet wide, a magnificent view presents it
self. The bay, its islands and busy life,
spreads away from just beneath, while be
yond the eye can see the landmarks of four
counties, with Tamalpais, Diablo and
Hamilton lifting their hieh crests into the
distant sky, but from their distance seem
ing not so high as the observer. Mr. Perry
is a bachelor, and his elegant home will
doubtless be the rendezvous of many of
his friends this summer. It was designed
byj. C. Pelton, architect, and will cost
about $8000.
Dr. L. Dunbar is putting in Borne im
provements to his villa, and Eugene Davis
is putting a |2000 addition to his elegant
The tide has already set in at Belvedere,
and at Sausalito the villas are rapidly fill
ing up, and there is besides quite a little
boom in real estate. Dr. Bazan moved
over during this week, William P. Har
rison will occupy his summer residence by
the tirst of the month, and Edear Wilson
will go over just as soon as Mr. Parry
moves into his own, for he is now living in
Mr. Wilson's house.
The boatbuilders are particularly busy
at Belvedere. Stone has just completed a
yacht for W. F. Biber that follows modern
lines and is expected to create surprises.
Some thirteen new yachts have come into
the bay from all quarters and have given a
new spirit of life to its waters.
There is no gloom in the household

"White House Receptions.
Large numbers of people always attend
the card receptions at the White House
without invitations, but the practice was
never so general as it has been this year.
Last night, at the army and navy recep
tion, there must have been a hundred or
more guests who were not expected and
who forced their way in without inter
ference irom the ushers and guards. Many
of them were well-known citizens of
Washington, who are perfectly familiar
with the customs and regulations that
govern official entertainments. They ap
peared in full dress and seemed to feel at
ease. The remainder were evidently
strangers, probably tourists or visitors to
the city, who could not resist the tempta
tion, even in violation of the laws of pro
priety, to see the President and his lovely
wife in their best raiment and surrounded
by the prominent official families of Wash
ington. This class of people could be de
tected by their manifest lack ©f familiarity
with the rules of the White House and the
garments they wore. Most of them were
dressed in ordinary street clothing.—Chi

The Rev. Dr. Sprague Occupies
the Pulpit at Synagogue
Rabbi Mayer S. Levy Discusses
the Twentieth-Century
A goodly audience greeted Rev. Leslie
W. Sprague, pastor of the Second Unita
rian Church, who occupied the pulpit of
Temple Emann-El last evening.
The reverend gentleman was introduced
by Dr. Jacob Voersanger in a few chosen
words. The rabbi said that Mr. Sprague
would base his address on "some classes
abd kinds of atheists and atheism."
Mr. Sprague then ascended the pulpit.
"When one stands in a sacred place like
this," said he, "and when one thinks of
the wealth, the beauty, the power, the in
spiration that has come from the thought
of God one realizes that corruption of this
thought of God has meant the corruption
of human life, the degradation of the
thought of God, the degradation of all
thoughts beautiful and pure."
Continuing, the reverend gentleman said
it would be unbecoming on his part to
make his address a sermon to a people
who have always possessed a theism of the
highest kind. He, therefore, proposed to
make his remarks in the form of a lecture.
"The thought of God is the last great
triumph of the human intellect. A feeling
and love for God is the last great triumph
of the human soul. Obedience to the will
of God is the last great triumph of the
human will. The worship of God is the
consummation of human life.
"Atheism can be explained by the word
"orthodoxy"; thus, as was once wittily
said, 'Orthodoxy is my doxy and hetereo
doxy is your doxy,' but the world uses the
word to signify 'a denial of the supreme
spirit of the universe."
Mr. Spragnethen proceeded to enumerate
the various classes of atheists which exist.
"Some there are who ask, 'Where is God?'
This is the first question the child asks,
and philosophy continually puts the same
"There is another atheism which recog
nizes God in nature, but in nothing else,
and still another which limits the'mani
festation of God to one single revelation.
"We take a glance at the ideas of some
people as to what God is. The Hindoo
says ' God is light.' The scientist, 'God is
energy and power.' The spiritual thinker,
'God is peace.' The sorrower says 'God is
compassionate.' But religion says 'God
is,' satisfied that it can give no definition,
loving, hoping, yearning, yet with rever
Looking at the human side of the ques
tion Mr. Sprague said there exists an
atheism of the head, of the heart and of
the mind. He thought there are few who
deny the spirit of the universe. The
danger lies with the classes, with the par
tial theists, who declare that such and
such is and such and such is not God. In
conclusion tho reverend gentleman warned
his audience against the dangers of
atheism, saying "How can we determine
•what God knows? Beware of formalism,
beware of dogmatism."
During the evening a good programme
of music was rendered by the choir of the
congregation and by Cantor Stark, the
principal item being, "How Goodly Are
Thy Texts." given as a soprano solo.
"The Twentieth Century Woman"
formed the subject of Rev. M. S. Levy's
lecture at Beth Israel Temple last evening.
Said Dr. Levy:
"I am not to be counted among ihose
who are opposed to the 'emancipation of
woman.' The history of the world shows
unmistakably that the influence of a pure
and good woman has ever helped to foster
what was best in man. At times it was
the mother, on other occasions the wife,
frequently the sister was the moral lever
that helped to eradicate the propensity for
evil. Without woman the social world
would become a wilderness; without her
gentle guidance man would develop into a
barbarian. Were it not for the domesticity
of woman our homes would become deso
late, our natures crude and unrefined.
"To woman's influence most men are in
debted for tneix success in life. To her
love of the pure and ideal religion owes its
ascendency. Without woman our places
of worship would become sepulchers: with
her, they are made celestial abodes where
man may taste a grain of the hereafter."
Dr. Levy, in trie further course of his re
marks, gave it as his opinion that the
twentieth century woman should be as ex
emplary in character as her ancestor, and
cited the case of Esther as that of a really
beautiful woman, both physically and

Enterprising Aristocracy.
Quite a little romance recently came to
light at a fashionable West End theater.
A lady connected with the aristocracy,
both by birth and marriage, was deserted
by her husband, and through failing health
gradually became so impoverished that
absolute want stared her in the face.
She tried to obtain employment at the
theater referred to above, but there was
only one vacancy, and that was for a pro
gramme boy. Her only child, 12 years of
age, heard of this, and, being anxious to
assist the mother, went to see the acting
manager, and was engaged.
The superiority of the newcomer's man
ners and his refusal to take tips brought
him into conflict with others on the staff,
and on one occasion he retaliated in self
defense with such dash and spirit that his
opponent was discomfited.
This breach of the regulations was fol
lowed by dismissal, and then, to the aston
ishment ©f all concerned, the high-spirited
programme-boy turned out to be a girl.—
