It is simply unsurpassed.
THE WATER
Supply is unlimited, coming from two
sources, viz: from several artesian wells
and a submerged dam; is carried in iron

San Francisco Market Review.
San FRANClsco.Mavll.—The produce markets
are quiet and prices fairly steady. Milling
wheat is firmer with good demand for choice
grades. Shipping wheat is entirely nominul,
there being uo trade whatever. Barley ls
stronger and prices of feed descriptions linn.
Oats are firmly held; stocks moderate. Corn Is
very strong, and prices higher. There is no
change ln other cereals or mlllstufls.
On Saturday the receipts of new potitoes
were very heavy, and prices have taken a down
ward tendency. Old potatoes continue weak
and neglected, and threaten to lower the in
quiry for old.
Onions have fallen away; new ones are plen
tiful but prices are low.
The fruit trade in general is gold. Strawber
ries aie firm, and slightly higher. Black cher
ries are in active demand, and heldatgocd
prices. White and red varieties are rather neg
lected, because of poorer quality. Oranges, se
lected sizes, sell at fancy prices, and are none
too common grades are drag
ging.
Receipts of early vegetables are quite large.
There is little material change in prices. The
demand for asparagus is fairly good. Green
peas are in over-supply and weaker ln price.
String beaus are a trifle lower and coming in
in good supply.

Much valuable information regarding the care

is BEAUTY, and BEAUTY capital. What some
of them say: A candid opinion from the famous
American cantratrice, one of the most consci
entious women on the stage:
Chicago, Nov. 13.—Mr. Wisdom—Dear Sir: I
beg to thank yon for the delightful and refresh
ing "Robertine" you so kindly sent me. I have
used the toilet preparations of the most cele
brated manufacturers of London and Paris, but
consider your "Kobkktink" their superior iv
point of purity and excellence. Wishing you
the unbounded success you deserve. I reman
faithfully yours, EMMA ABBOTT.
The "Jersey Lily," the most celebrated beauty
living, who has had every opportunity of know
mv whereof she speaks, expresses herself us
follows:
Messrs. Wisdom & Co.—Gentlemen: Although
it is very unusual for me to use any lotions or
washes, Btill in answer to your request, I have
tried "Wisdom's Violet Cream and Kobertine."
The lormer I consider especially efficacious in
cases of roughness of the skin, and I have used
it every day for the laßt fortnight. I have found
your "Kobertine" an excellent preparation for
removing sunburn, tan and the effects of cold
wind, heat, etc. Please send me at once a
dozen bottles each, as I am leaving for Europe
Saturday week. Yours faithfully,
LILLIK LANGTRY.
An unsolicited tribute from the great and
beautiful emotional actress:
Deor Sir: Your "Kobertine" was highly
spoken of in San Francisco, and a lady fr'end
induced me to try it. It ls very fine and an ex
cellent application for whitening and beautify
ing the face a, d hands. The Robertine powder
is delightful. Very truly,
