The Herald s.iys  A  fall  each  and    twenty  minuie.;'  extra wrestling  was the result of the  long-looked for   wrestling  match    be-  tween Sine Swanson  and Ualph John  son  itt  tlie  Athlelic  Club  rooms last  evening.   The match  started at iiw  minutes  past   ten,   and  was   stopped  by  order4 of     the   police at twelvo  o'clock.        1 here   was   much ivetty  work  done  by  cac-h   man,   ai/d oach  one's supporters arc just as sure tlia*.,  they  ha'xe picked  tlie  best  nu\u     us  they were ibeforu the go last-night.  Just before the contest began scales .wore placed on the stage, and as  neither man could raise the weights  at 155 pounds, there was no dispu'.>  regarding weight. Sine was so Tar  below thc'Iftft-pound mark that , l.������  stepped on the scales while dressed.  Johnson's weight was thought to bo  pretty close to. the limit.  -Mr. Thomas Hudson, of Cumberland, was introduced as the gentle  man who had been picked to referee  the match, and nt'tcr explaining that  Police Gazette rules would apply,  and each fall would have to be a pitfall, ho called the principals to the  centre  of tlie mat.  IJi>th men sho%veu caution when ap-  proaching, but once . they had span--,  cd aio.iiid, it was only,-lour minutes  before tliey were down on the mat, %  wiih Johuson behiud. He folded a  loviiig embrace about Sine's body as  tho crowd checfed, and the wrestling  match was on.  While Sine was the lower man, ho  was by no ineans idle, and kept himself busy for'the- lirst few minutes  grabbing'.'at Johnson's hands when-  ���������ver the latter seemed inclined to  akc advarttage of his position. After puzzling Johnson as to what the  grabs meant, Swanson made a neat  getaway, and both men came to  their feet.  AU this time one of Swanson's supporters had been tolling the audience  in a loud  voice  about   tho  fifty dollars he  had to bet on  Swanson,  and  when  the  latter made  the ..-getaway,  he became even   more     enthusiastic,  and/holding up. a package which he'  Was carrying in one.hiitid, announced  that he  was  willing   to put  up   tho  fifty and his fifteen  cents . worth      of  cheese.'   He had hardly g<,t. tho. goner  oiis  offer  out . before   Johnson'    was  again  behind     his .man on  the mat,  the  time  being exactly  two   minutes,  from   his      first   success.    Johnson's  work  was  being  wuU bed  with  interest as  there  wore ninny present who  did   not   know   just   what'to   expect  from him.   He showed  in short prd'r  that ho  knew  what  he was  there for,  and   this  being, settled   to  the   satisfaction   of   the audience,   they  settled  back und watched the fun.   N  hardly had thc flash died out bcfuie  both men wore busy. Sine introduced,  new tactics, and was'successful. With  a grab which rivaled the photographer's 'powder for 'quickness, he secured  FOR THE  WHOLE ISLAND  Air.  Gouldcr says in his letter:  Americans  Handicapped.

Last night the flames  ciimo from Nob Hill riding making  their, way to tho. big sea wall, (locks  aiul warehouses, but reports of damage are conflicting. One statement  i.s ihat most of the valuable properly on the extreme .shore liius escaped. A reporter who skirted the water front in a tug this morning,  says that everything except four  docks  had  Been Swept Awny.  from fishermen's wharf'at the fool,  of Powell Street to a point around  Westerly almost to the ferry building. This menus that nearly a mile  of grain sheds, docks and wharves  have been added to the goncral destruction. The reporter also declared that he saw tire blading in South  San Francisco last night and that  tli'ots in the suburbs were smouldering this afternoon. According to  his. account, fire was still burning at  the foot of Fowell street early today. There was no possibility of it  going inito the . Presido district. Fire  started in the south side ferry building last night, but fire tugs put it  o-ut.  Huge Section in Aslus.  In the section north of Market  Street, the ruined district is practically bounded on the west by Van  Ness Avenue although in ninny block  the flames destroyed squares to the  west of that thorouchrnre. The Nan  Ness Avenue burned line runs northerly to Greenwich Street which is a  few  blocks  from the  bay.    Then  the  semblance of a furnace with a few  dry sticks beneath cans or kettles,  was the improvised kitchen in which  tho food of the millionaire as well  as Un.' humble workman was prepared. All through the fine residence  section of Pacific Heights, people sat  on ' tho sidewalks and took thoir  black coffee, dry bread, crackters and  in some cases eggs and bacon.  In the Park,  and along the North 'beach, or where  ever people woro camped, the relief  stations handed out food sufificicn*.  to relieve the situation. There were  probably very few persons who did  not receive some sort of iood this  morning. T)v grave question to be  mot   this   morning  is   the  sanitation.  Beilingham, April 21��������� The government observer at the Tatoosh lighthouse station reports that the stoani  era Neis'on from Tacoma, Tellus from  Victoria,- and Shasta from Beilingham,  each of which carries relief sup  c  plies for San Francisco, have passed  Cape Flattery and arc now well out  to sea.      C tizens of Blaine arc start  to-  a-ith swollen" and bruised feet     from  walking  over rugged,  broken streets,  and were  blistered from cinders   and  flames.   Tha women hastened to a local  hotel where they remained all afternoon  and  evening,   prostrated   by  the   exposure.    Mr.   Posey   went    directly home,  but Dr.  Fleming,       unkempt and  disheveled,  wont to      tho  Chamber of  Commerce to  give   suggestions   for   succoring   the   stricken  ones who  had  not been  fortunate enough to flee from  the city of disolatum.   Upon his suggestion     the   relief parties made purchases  of linen  and bandages   to  send  north.       He  says that the number of killed     in s  been greatly exaggerated, but     that  hundreds,   probably' thousands,     aru  suffering from burns and hundreds of  thousands from hunger and exposure.  ing  a carload  of  rHief  supplies  'clay.     .More  will follow.

Santa Kosn, April 21.���������The list  of tho known dead now totals 5S  and it is believed that 100 is a very  conservative estimate of thc number  of people who lost their lives in the  awful catastrophe which visited this  city  on Wednesday morning.  Five bodies were recovered today  from the wreckage and the search  has hardly begun. Thc entire business   section  Is in Ruins.  and practically every residence in  town is more or less damaged, 1."  or 20 being badly wrecked. Tho damage to residences was caused principally hjV the sinking of the foundation which let many structures down,  in the ground. The brick and stono  business b'ocks together with the  public buildings, were thrown, flat.  All Buildings Destroyed.  - The court house, hall- of records .  residential section, and Santa Rosa  hotels, the . Athanaeum theatre the  Masonic temple.

No such complete destruction of business interests ever, before resulted, from an ;  earthquake, in America.      The very  Completeness!  of  the Devastation  Is really the ��������� redeeming feature,  though, for it puts all upon exactly  the same footing commercially speak  ing. Bankers and millionaires are  going about with only the few dollars they happened to have in their  pockets when the crash came and aiv.  little bettor off than the laborers who  are digging through the debris.

"If ihe presint  fashi<n  of sleeping  out of doors,  in  tents, and  on  porticos-and galleries  continues  to  grow  in   Colorado,      it  will  not  be  many  years  before     the whole  population  abandons the old-fashioned practice of  reposing   in   bcdr0onis,"   said  F.      L.  Greenough of Denver.    "I  have    any  number  of friends and  acquaintances  who have formed  the open-air habit-  and     who could not be bribed       to  spend the night inside their bedr0o;n  They say that they never  felt       .������o  well  in all their lives and  that nothing could induce them  to go back to  sleeping  indoors.

WAY OF WASHING  FIRST.���������Dip the artir'.e  to be washed in a tub of  luhewarm water, draw it  out on a washboard and rub  the soap lightly over it.  Be particular not to miss  soaping all over. THEN  roll it in a tight roll, lay  in the tub under the water,  and (jo on the same way  until all the pieces have the  soap rubbed on, and are  rolled up.  Then bo away for  thirty minutes to one  hour and let the "Sunlight" Soap do its work.  NEXT.���������After soaking  the full time rub the cloi hes  ' lightly out on a wash board,  and the dirt will drop  out; turn the garment inside out to get at the seams,  but don't use any more  soap; don't scald or boil a  single piece, and don't  wash through two suds._ If  the water gets too dirty,  pour a little out and add  fresh, if a streak is hard  to wash, rub some more  soap on it, and throw  the piece back into the  suds for a few minutes.  LASTLY COMES THE  RINSING, which is to be  done in lukewarm water,  taking special care to get  all the dirty luds away,  then wring out and hang  up to dry.  For Woolens and Flannels proceed a* follows: ���������  Shake the ariicUs free from  dust.
