that the front is trimmed iu triplets of
pearl buttons. The swinging low front
Is the new French curve which is par

holds it comfortably and rigidly at the
desired point. The belts of the skirt,

and neatly arranged by the use of this
new article, and are kept (irmly yet
easily in place without a wrinkle, dis

fullness usual to the superposing or

National Encampment . A. R.
The Thirty-seventh National En
campment (r..:el Aim,) of thcRcpub
liciwhic h is to b.- In ld iu fan Francisco
dining the week commencing August
I7t!l, l'.'O:!, is destined to hci Hue olic of
the most notabie gathering.- iu point
of numbers, magtiiih-cncc and splendor
iu the history nf California, as well
as iu the annals of the Iralci nily. Tho
people of San Francisco, and ol all
California, fully appreciating the fact
that these veterans may never again
gather iu an l-'.iicauipinciil ou the
shores of the Pacific, w ill exert every
etlort to make this Encampment the
most memorable one in the history of
the G. A. R. No other organization
holds the atl'eclioti of the people as
does the one composed of the veterans,
the defenders of the I'nion, of liberty
and light. The veterans residing iu
California and Nevada arranged the
preliminaries for the Encampment,
but all the people of California and of
the Pacitlc Coast are enthusiastic ou
that topic now, and working hand ill
baud with Hie committees to make this
Kiicampmeiit eclipse all former frater
nal gatherings. From the Governor
ol the State to the humblest citizen,
eveiy one is imbued with the Idea that
Suu Fruiicisco and California must give
the veterans the most rousing welcome
they have ever had. Merchants, manu
facturers, fanners and miners, all are
eager to make the visit of the veterans
a pleasant and a memorable one. They
are determined to show the visitors the
famed beauties of this Western Won
derland, w hich must be seeii to be ap
preciated. From eveiy county and
section of Ilie, State the choicest pro
ducts will be brought to San Francisco,
and be placed on exhibition, lhat the
visitors may feast their eyes upon them.
Carloads of fruit the most delicious in
the world fruit-beariug trees, the
uIuuim of to ClirriitH fore!. nnd
oilier wouders that have made the
Golden State famous, will be ou exhi
bition throughout the City for the
benefit of those who cannot visit every
section of the state. The famous gar
dens of Santa Clara, .Marin, Sonoma,
Alameda, Contra Costa and other ad
jacent Counties will furnish the ma
terial for the grandest tloral display
ever seen. Oiiurt ami hydraulic mili
um will be demonstrated on niinalure
mines, und oil wells are to be bored in
the city, iu sight of the visitors.
1 hcelccirical display and the illum
inations are to surpass even those
which have made .-;iti Francisco fam
ous during the Knights f Pythias en
campment in 1002, and were consider
ed the finest ever seen. It will be the
grandest sight to behold the vast hosts
of the veterans inarching through the
streets of San Francisco, beneath a
canopy of lloweis, and under garlands
and domes woven of myriads of incan
descent electric lights, turning nighl
into day and making tin- scene one of
fairyland. For the illumination ami

owned by the city and is given free of
cost, and the Mow el s are donated, tho
Legislature has appropriated Jj-2o,(X;0
for that purpose, and the citizens ex

The climate is the most agreeable that
can he imagined ; the temperature tho
year round is mild and pleasant. In
August, with no rain, the thermome
ter registers ii." to 7) degrees, rarely a
degree more or less, whether mid-day
or mid-night. Two hundred thousand
visitors can be easily accommodated ill
the city atone time, and have been
comfortably housed on two former oo
casions. Living iu San Francisco is
cheaper than in any large city iu the
I'liion, and it is good living at that.
Fruit unci vegetables grow in abun
dance the year round ; there is no cold
hot nor an oil-season in California, iu
August fruit can be bou ht from any
street vender, enough for 5 eeuis to
feed a family. Meat is plentiful aud
cheap, and of the very best quality.
