"If Tou Pick Red Berries Yon

The ctlier morning when the train of the
North Pacific Ciast I'ailroa 1 stopped at
Koss Station, beyond Sausalito, several
parties of young gentlemen, aggregating
about thirty in number, stepped br.akly out
from the depot for a walk in the neighbor
hood of Mount Tamaipais. S< me of them
headed for the summit of the mountain by
nay of the Eldridge grade, some announced
tl i-ir determination of stopping at Tucker's
Camp, i ttiers expressed themselves in favor
of Kckert's Camp, further un the mountain
side at tie big .-pring, while another group
staried for the Boiiuas Kidge at Lan son's
over the county ruad, parsing Liberty's, but
all traveled iv one cavalcade as lar a.i "the

•purpose of arresting any and all persons
arrivne from the direction of Upper
Koss Valley who had in their possession
clusters oi berries or sprigs of redwood or
fir. Seveial of the gentlemen expressed a
deiermination, if any opportunity pre
sented, of securing what they conveniently
could carry. In the evening some of the
trampers returned by way of the "Slide"
dowu into Mill Valley, others took the trail
over the "ling's Back" to Alto [formerly
known as Blythdalt). while the balance re
traced their footsteps to Ross Station, all
loaded dowu with the berries. But the
patrolman aud hit four assistants did not
materialize, and it is represented no arrests
were made, but that the warning of the man
on tiie wagon in the morning was only the
"bluff" ol oue who aimed to furnish San
Fraucisco with the beautiful berries and
who desired to scare people who only
picked a few as incidental to across-country
walk out ol supplying their own wants.
Tlieie seems to be a disposition on the part
of some of the residents to keep strangers
out of the neighborhood, thougli one lady

TWO CENTS AND UP.
Dealers in Christinas Trees Ad
Belweodi fcarce, But White Piae Is Abundant.
Banclieri Glad to Get Bid cf Tbem.
Ten Thousand Sold Y. s'.erdsy.
A botanist who can give a long and ugly
Latin name to the prettiest plant the fertile
earth produces, stood upon the Clay-street
Wharf yesterday morning as a boat heavily
laden with Christmas trees neared tli6 land
ing. He sadly sighed as tho fragrant cargo
was discharged and anathematized the cus
tom which causes the forest to be despoiled
of its fairest treasures. But the wrangling,
jostling crowd of dealers in Christmas trees
and scarlet berries paid little attention to bis
The first load was soon disposed of and
quickly followed by others, until the wharf
was a miniature forest, hiding the busy
dealers from tiie eyes of the passenger on
board the vessels in tho bay.
Ihe "season" opened last Wednesday,
when several carloads of evergreens from
Sonoma County were brought to this ciiy.
The prices charged ou the lirst and second
days of the sale were no higher than those
that were asked one year ago— thirty-five
cents for a bunch of from three to six small
trees and from fifty to seventy-five cents
for large trees. The demand was very active.
Churches and Sunday-schools, hall proprie
tors, merchants aud saloon-keepers wanted
trees, and bought tbem, paying two or three
times tbe amount churgid the peddlers ou
Then someone spread a report that trees
were going to be scarce this year and prices
ou the wharf uud throughout the city took
an upward leap. Sixty-live ceuts a bunch
and from 75 cents lo $2 50 for trees was
charged and paid without a complaiut.
Several car-loads, each containing 1200
trees and valued at $110 a load, arrived and
were disposed of yesterday, the total sale 3
for the day amounting to about 10,00'J trees.
Besides these, innumerable sack-, of scarlet
berries at 25 cents a sack were sold. One of
these sacks in the hands of an iudu-triotis
small boy was divided into forty bunches,
which he sold at 10 cents a bunch, realizing
a profit ou his stock that would make the
profit-loving druggist weep witn envy.
The profits of the wholesale and retail
dealers in trees are almost as larae as tbosu
made by the boys. A great gulf yawns be
tween the price which the rancher is paid
for the irecs and that paid by the retailer's
customer. But the rancher is tlad to get
lid of thtm aud uoes so at a very handsome
THE FIIiST COST.
The proprietors of a ranch in Sonoma
County from which many of the trees that
are now being sold in this city were
brought stated tbat lie obtained 2 cents for
every tree cut off his place. He was glad to
get lid of them at that price; but realizing
that timber may yet become very scarce in
California, he will sparo the ax uext year.
The trees are cut close to the earili. Tiie
stutup quickly decays, and in a few years
has disappeared, leaving the grouud in
readiness for cultivation. The expense of
cutting and hauling is borne by the pur
chaser, who also pays $24 per car-load for
having the trees brought to this city. He
sells the load which has cost bim about $00
for $U0 to the local dealers, who advance
the price until the last purchaser pays at
the rate of about $1200 per load.
Young redwoods are rather scarce in this
city, but the dealers charge no more for
ti em thau for the coarser pines aud spruces.
Two Little Qtrla Left In a Cellar by an
Robert Neill was arrested yesterday by
Detectives Seymour and Hanlv on a charee
of cruelty to children. The officers say he
left bis two children, girls aged 9 aud 10
years, in the basement of (511 Eddy street,
without food or clothing, about live weeks
ago, when lie married a second time.
The children were deserted by him to livo
or die by starvation, neglect and exposure.
Only a filthy bed was in the cellar on
Eddy street when the clriccrs rescued tne
little ones. Kindly neighbors took pity nu
the deserted girls and fed them for a few
weeks, until it was necessary to provide
them with clean clothing, when the police
were informed of the children's pitiable

Jacob Cram, "specinl" policeman in the
Theater of Varieties, a dive on Giant avenue,
was taught a lesson yesterday in tho Police
Court which may do him good. Cram has
become notorious for the way in which he
receives and clubs visitors to the dive.
Last Wednesday night Thomas Slinson
went into the place and took a drink at the
bar, but because he did not mix with the
unfoitiinatu women and spend money on
them Cram, the "special," clubbed him
over the head savagely, almost fracturing
the man's skull as well as cutting the scalu
in several p aces.
Yesterday Judge IJix said it was about
time to stop such work. He sentenced Cram
to pay a fine of $150 or be nu prisoned for 150

court to show cause why he should not he

ness and lack of work, but paia $25 into
court on account. To give him time to pay
the balance, the case was continued to the
Seneca McCrnrv '» Will. i
The will of Seneca McCrory, iisposiug of
property valued at $9500, lias been filed for
