firm and footful tread.
"You cannot see the signature," said Mr.
Stanton, "but some day perhaps you may
see a sketch of the foot. Has the Triiby

of the town? Well I should say it had.

There was a knock at the door just then,
and Mr. Stanton got up to admit the
caller. "Probably a consignment of feet
from the Latin quarter," he said, but it
proved to be a messenger who was there
for the purpose of getting the picture of
the last foot painted by Mr. Stanton.
"Dere's a iady on California street what
wants her foot. See?" said the boy, "Ana
she wants it dis evenin' or it don't go.
See? Dere's a-goin' to be a fracus at de

The artist threw up his hands in amaze
ment and sent word back that he must
have another pose for the toes.
"That's the way it goes," said he, "they
all seem to think I have been painting feet
for years. I'll tell you the business of feet
painting is a little new in this section, and
I don't like to be rushed. It's funny, isn't
it, how people get wild over such small
things as — feet? I suppose the time will
come when the parlors of the people will
contain pictures of the feet of their rela
tions. How would it look to see a picture
of your father's foot, your grandfather's
foot, your second cousin's foot and the
feet of your nieces and nephews? Of
course, it would be necessary to have a
foot of George Washington and Abraham
Lincoln over the fireplace and a campaign
lithograph of the feet of Jim Budd and
Morris M. Estee hung up in the billiard
room. Great heavens, isn't it getting ter

and has posed for most of the painters of
the City. Corinne was found in the studio
of Henry Raschen, who is painting a bust
picture of the young lady.
"Trilby? Did I hear you say Trilby?"
answered Corinne to a question touching
upon the prime character of Dv Maurier's
immortal book. "Do you know that I am
getting tired of Trilby. All I hear to-day
among my girl friends is Trilby. They
want to pose just as Trilby did,' but peo
ple who make a farce of posing never make
good models. Posing is no jest. Now, for
instance, some younjr ladies have talked
with me about posing, and many of them
say they wouldn't do it for the world.
Pshaw.'' Corinne threw back her nair,
winked, and lowering her voice to a
whispdr, continued: "That's all fudire.
The boys tell me different things about the

Now I'll look at you a few moments. Is

Corinne settled herself again and kept
quiet for nearly a minute. Presently
she shifted her position long enough to
observe that the Trilby craze had devel
oped too many feet, "Every young crea

they all want to have them painted. It's

astrous results. One never — "
"This way, Corinne," chimed in Raschen
"All right. There. One never knows

false modesty. Most of them seem to live
under the disadvantage of a wondrous
beauty, so grand and sublime that no man
can look upon it without feeling a great
misery that they will some day be dead
and removed from the face of the great
world. Isn't it sad?" The model crossed
her hands and looked very disconsolate
over the whole affair. Raschen went on
painting and succeeded in getting Corinne
to remain quiet for some moments.
"Trilby. Feet. Amateur models.

ONE STORY OF THE STEAL
Bullion Sent From the Carson
Mint to the Selby Re-
The Particles Left by the Sul-

The visit to this City of United States
District Attorney C. A. Jones, in company
with ii. D. Clarke, superintendent of the
Reno Reduction Works, revives the sensa
tion that was created several months ago
by the big steal made in the Carson Mint
by John D. Jones and A. Heney, who were
then nielters and refiners there.
The attorney is here, accompanied by
the expert, to look into and make a thor
ough study of the sulphuric process of the
reduction of gold from the bullion in the
Mint in this City and at the Selby Refining
In an interview with Jones and Clarke
considerable light was thrown on the ne
farious operations of the two employes of
the Carson Mint that hitherto has not been
John D. Jones was assistant molter and
refiner there, under one Zabrieska, tinder
the last administration. Zabrieska was
troubled with a chronic disease, which
made his constant presence at the Mint an
impossibility, and as a consequence Jonea
was enabled to carry on his methods with
out detection. When Zabrieska was suc
ceeded by Hirsh Harris, a noted expert in
his line, the shortage was discovered.
Mr. Harris, in preparing his report to be
sent to Washington," found a large deficit
and spoke to Jones regarding it. Jones
said that the difference would be found in
the "slum' tanks. Examination was
made of the tanks indicated, and the
amount of gold found there did not begin
to approximate the required amount.
Harris then sent word to Washington
for an expert, saying that there was some
thing seriously wrong at the Mint.
Andrew Mason, superintendent of the
New York Assay Oilice, was detailed to
examine into the matter, and through hia
discoveries the guilt of Jones and Heney
was made clear.
To cover the deficiency spurious melts
had been made, one, No. 13G, which should
have contained $23,000 value, was found to
hold only $1900. It was also found that
Jones had failed to keep an account of the
gold and silver melts for the consolidation.

the hands of Clark was found to be over

mine rarely contain more than 19 V£ parts
of pure goid gave another clew to those
looking up the matter.
Also when the first granulations were
brought to the reduction works they were
very rotten, and indicated that they either
had been buried or were pregnant with
minute particJes incident to the sulphuric
process. The sacks had formed a sort of
carbon which prevented the ready separa

SELLING DISEASED MEAT
Chinese Butcher-Shop Raided
by Market Inspector
White People Found Buying Im
mature Veal and Meat With
Chief Market Inspector Ben Davis con
demned a lot of diseased meat in China
town yesterday and to-morrow he is going
to swear out warrants for the arrest of a
number of Chinese butchers. The meat
seized was in a frightful condition. The
beef was from an animal in the last stages
ot tubercular disease. The butchers had
been so careless in preparing the carcass
for market that they had not taken the
pains to remove the tubercles. They would
have undoubtedly been cooked with the
rest of the meat by the purchaser.
Four unnatural calves were also discovered
in the same shops. While the inspector was
bringing up his buggy two of tnem were
smuggled away. The inspector and two
policemen hunted the shops in the vicinity
but wore unable to again find any trace of
the condemned calves. The chances are
they will be cut up and offered for sale
when there are no market inspectors about.
This is not the first condemned meat
seized and destroyed by Inspector Davis,
by any means, but it is one of the worst
cases that he has tound in a long time and
adds its weight to the proof that the Chi
nese butchers do not hesitate to sell meat
known to be diseased. In the present
case the evidences of tuberculosis were so
apparent that a child would have known
the meat was poison. Any tyro would
have scoffed at the assertion that the
calves were not immature veal.
The raid of the inspectors on the Chinese
butcher-shops is important, because so
many white people living on the borders
of Chinatown buy their meat there — be
cause it is cheap. The reason the meat is
sold so cheap is because it is diseased, of
course. For instance, the cow from which
this tuberculosis meat was obtained sold
for $2. The market inspector knows that
for a fact, becaube he was watching her for
several days in order to arrest any man
who should kill her for butcher's meat.
The Chinese, however, have a way of buy
ing up diseased cattle and slaughtering
them secretly in out-of-the-way places.
The immature calves captured sold for
75 cents each. Of coarse no butcher in
legitimate business can hope to compete
with butchers who get their stock at such
Wholesale Butcher Jefferson J. James
testified before the Supervisors last Friday
that any beef that dies in transit is worth
$8 to its' owner, on account of the hide, etc.
A very ordinary beef carcass is worth $20,
and a very ordinary sized veal will fetch
$5. A Chinese butcher, therefore, who
buys cows at less than $5 and calves at
less than $1 can afford to make a big cut
in his prices in order to attract customers.
It is said on pretty good authority that
a number of cheap butcher-shoos and
cheap hotels have been going to China
town of late to get their meats. If that is
so diseased meats have been pretty widely
sold in the City.
On the last trip of the Board of Health
through Chinatown the members rooted
out and condemned a lot of this diseased
and decaying meat. Whole sides of j
beeves and carcasses of stieep and calves j
were found in a horrible condition in the j
dark closets of a number of butcher-shops. I
They were being offered for sale cheap
because they were in such an advanced
stage that they could not last much
longer. When questioned about the
matter the owners answered stolidly and
indifferently. Apparently they thought
if customers bought such meat the conse
quences had to rest on the head of the cus
tomers. They treat the matter pretty
much as they do the raids on the gambling
and opium dens. As soon as the inspector
disappears they order in a lot more of
cheap meat and go right on selling it as if
nothing had happened. Instances have
been known where they recaptured the
condemned meat and coolly hung it out j
for sale again.
Inspector Davis has been lecturing these |
butchers and condemning the diseased
and decaying meats till patience has
ceased to be a virtue. Now he proposes to
make an example of some of them and stop
the traffic. To-morrow he will swear out
warrants for the arrest of Quang Sang &

THE CITY MILK SUPPLY

A Unit in Favor of the Estab

The question of the purity ot the milk

rious consequences. The best dairies are a

legislation economically and honestly en
In an interview yesterday R. G. Snenth
of the Jersey Farm Dairy said :
"This is a matter of life or death to the
old and young whether the miik they con
sume is pure and wholesome or not. They
must have milk to live, as it is about the
only food the feeble old and younc can de
pend upon for a prolongation of their lives
—and to be engaged in the production of
pure, wholesome milk demands an integ
rity of purpose, honesty of character and
conscientious regard for the health and
lives oi people not often found among the
ignorant or lower classes.
'•The greatest danger from most milk is
ipnm the large quantity of chemicals used
in preventing the milk from souring. The
filthier the milk the quicker it will sour;
besides old milk can be saved for several
days and none be lost, or old milk can be
purchased at less than half price, doctored
and sold at full price, but the children that
use it will probably sicken and die.

his entire attention, had the following to
"There is truly no more important mu

condition of the milk supply. Honest in
spection of milk is simply setting a pre

"The public should not be deceived into
the belief that it is wise economy to buy
cheap milk. It is penny wise ancl pound
foolish. Better pay the milkman than the
doctor is the correct idea."
The San Muteo Ranch Dairy is situated
near San Mateo, where the cows have a
lar;re range with plenty of green grass and
The dairy is constructed on scientific
principles, with a thorough system and on
a large scale. Greut care is taken in every
thing. The water is piped to all the build
ings, troughs and roadways around the
premises, and the corrals are on elevated
ground, so that the cattle may be free from
mud and filth. The barns have elevated
Uoors, that are washed clean twice daily,
and there is not a taint or bad smell about
the whole place.
The milkers are cleanly, and yet not al
lowed about the milkroom where the cream
is separated from the milk for the fear of
taint, nor can flies, dust or dirt of any kind
be found where the milk is cooled and
canned, or in fact about the barn, winch is
very important as the milk and cream
might be highly charged with bacteria
from a filthy barn before it leaves for the
City. This dairy does not buy milk to
sell for the reason that the purity of
the milk cannot be guaranteed without
having supervision over it on the farm.
W. P. A. Brewer appeared ereatly pleased
at the call made hy the newspaper report
er and took every opportunity to show
him the entire equipment of the dairy.
The stables and distributing-house on the
ranch are large and well kept. It is the
policy of this dairy to serve a uniform
quality of milk to its customers.
The City retail business has its head
quarters at 1515 Fillmore street, near
Geary. An inspection of the depot will
show the very best management, special
pains being taken to Keep milk in a pure,
uncontaminated condition from the time
it is drawn from the cow until it reaches
"As to the matter of inspecting," said
John Linclian of the Green Valley Dairy,"
"it is a, subject to which I have given very
close study, and my idea is that too rigid
regulations cannot exist for those who
wish to do an honest business. The effect
will be to raise a high standard and force
ail to deliver t,'ood, wholesome milk. In
spector Dockery has taken several samples
from my wagons at different times, but
the boys were allowed in each instance to
drive on unmolested. My aim has always
been to serve good, wholesome milk.
Strict regulations will give the honest
milkman just recognicion."
A special trip was made to the Green
Valley Dairy, which is situated within six
miles of this City, on the boundary line of
San Mateo County. This dairy was estab
lished twenty-five years ago. The ranch
comprises over a thousand acres of land,
and in the barns are always stored from
two to three hundred tons of the Dest
ground feed, such as bran, middlings and
oatmeal, that the market affords.
Over the ranch may be seen 350 head of
the best cattle in the Rest condition. The
utmost care is taken to keep the milk and
cream in the best of order and free from
taint of any kind, the whole beinir under
the personal supervison of John Linehan
and his four sons.
Mr. Linehan and his sons have the repu
tation of being diligent :ind careful dairy
men. In fact, the old gentleman comes of
a family of dairymen who taught him in
his boyhood days every feature of the
business. This "is shown by the system
and business metnods pursued at the
ranch, all of which give the public the
best warrant in dealing with him.
The next visit was made to the Millbrae
Company at the corner of Mission and
Ninth streets, of which F. H. Green is
president and E. A. Green general man
ager. This is one of the oldest establish
ments in San Francisco, being in exist
ence forty years. These gentlemen have
had years of experience in the milk busi
ness and thoroughly understand the wants
of the trade, and spare no pains nor ex
pense to please their customers and main
tain creditable patronage.
In speaking of milk inspection F. H.
Green said: "We may be put down as
heartily in favor of milk inspection. It is
to be hoped that this well-meant consid
eration of the condition of milk will result
in the formulation of a thorough and
equitable system of inspection. It is
safe to say every good dairy will be will
ing to spend time and money to that end.
1 for one would be in favor of paying the
Milk Inspector a good salary and giving
him full support in his work of stamping
out the impostors in the business.
HMnrin County, famous for its butter pro
duction, is the source of the Millbrae Com
pany's milk. A strong credential of this
duiry is the continued patronage of a large
number of prominent physicians, clubs
The Guadaloupe Dairy Company's ranch
and premises were next visited. This com
pany was established in 1872, and at pres
ent is composed of John A. Roy, presi
dent, C. W. Taber, vice-president,"and L.
A. Hay ward, treasurer. These names con
nected with any concern are sufficient
guarantee to the public that what they put
on the market will be the purest and best.
The ranch is located in Guadaloupe Val
ley, San Mateo County, within six miles
of the City. It is a "model place for a
ranch, being situated in the midst of the
most oicturesque scenery, with valleys and
mountain streams surrounding them. The
drive from the old San Bruno road up to
where the dairy is located is very attract
ive. The pasturage is of the best, and
bands of contented and peaceful-looking
cows are passed on every hand.
The dwellings for the men are large, and
the barns and stables and grain-houses are
the acme of neatness. A visit to this com
pany's ranch would at once convince you
that where such cleanliness is observed
and complete quarters maintained, good,
pure milk must be found.
In discussing the inspection of milk
\ J : A - Hay ward, who is president of the
Milkmen's Union, said: "I believe this
movement will result in a great benefit.
For once the people seem to be in earnest
in their support of the inspector. He
should be paid a good salary and be under
bonds the same as any other responsible
City official. There is one thing quite cer
tain, the newspapers are doing a good
work in properly warning and educating
the consumers of milk."
PEOPLE'S THEATER WOES
Edward Theile Causes a Sen-
sation by Annexing Forty
The Manager of the Theater,
G. L. Clayton, Pursued by
The People's Theater is in sore financial
straits. The managers owe everybody in
sight, and the creditors — electric light
men, newspapers, plumbers— are threaten
ing to attach.
The trouble is of long standing, but it
came to a head last night. A number of
creditors called at the cashier's olKce, but
Edward Theile, who was issuing tickets,
was instructed by Q. L. Clayton, the man
ager, to put them off. It appears that
young Thiele did not consider this quite
in accordance with his views on square
dealinc. Besides, Clayton owed him some
back salary. As soon as he had collected
$40 admission fees he annexed the same
and tendered his resignation.
Clayton was very indignant at the per
fidious conduct of his cashier, and loudly
proclaimed to all and sundry his ability to
settle all debts in full. The electric light
man, however, threatened to put out the
light and the newspaper man to put in
tne Sheriff. So between the two Mr. Clay
ton is liable to fare badly.
The proceedings at the theater last night
were of a rattier lively character. Two
gentlemen, one of whom was a plumber by
profession and connected with the theater,
and the stage manager, proceeded to argu
ment in the barroom, which argument
presently took the form of blows. Mr.
Clayton was profuse in his apologies for
the scene, remarking that there had
"Never! no, never!" been such a scene
"within these walls."
Mr. Clayton, it appears, does not propose
to ask the assistance of the police depart
ment to recover his cash, which was ap
propriated by Theile. and Theile will not
give it up as it rightfully belongs to him.
Monday will see the settlement of the lit
tle controversy as far as the creditors are
