snow in 25 years fell In San Francis
co today, accompanied by a heavy
thunderstorm. The mercury dropped
ten degrees in a single hour. The
day opened with brilliant sunshine
and everybody prepared for a pleas
ant outing, but shortly after noon a
dense black cloud swept in from the
ocean and settled over Twin Peaks,
to the west, of the city.
Immediately after the electrical dis
charge, snow began falling. In most
parts of town, the snow melted as
it fell, but in the Mission district, It
reached a depth of about half an inch.
The small boys went frantic at the
prospect of a real game of snowball
and proceeded to pelt every moving
object. Windows were broken in ev
ery direction, automobiles, carriages
and street cars sustaining the most
damage. Many occupants of street
cars were cut by broken glass and
there were a few passengers- who had
to be taken to hosfJUals for treat
ment for quite severe wounds.
The snow also fell to a depth of
an inch on the foothills in the sub
urbs of Oakland. The high, mountains
around the bay wear a white mantle
of several inches of snow. :
For the second time in 30 years,
snow fell at Fresno today. The Iflakes
fell for only a few minutes and were
followed by cold rain.

Boston Wool Market,
Boston, Mass. Feb. 27. A perplex
ing situation exists in the American
wool trade, although the new .wool
season approaching will show a short
age ot 25,000,000 pounds In the Amerl
can clip and will disclose the necessi
ty of importing from 100,000,000 to 200,
000,000 pounds of the staple this year.
Pr'ces of domestic wools range from
15 to 30 per cent below the import
ing point in the large eastern mark
ets. The spread in wool prices here and
abroad was first noted about the be
ginning of 1910. Since that time in
the face of a strong foreign market,
prices In domestic markets have sag
ged off and the gap has' been steadily
widening. Not only is the stock of
domestic wool in America likewise re
duced to a minimum, but authorities
estimate that today supplies of wool
in this country are at least 50 per
cent below the volume carried at
the beginning of 1910. Unless the fo
reign situation weakens the near ap
proach of the necessity for import
ing will gradually level up prices fof
the domestic staple to a point near
er foreign prices.
