As the strue- rock differs consid- -USually found in the e described in some 13lish and compact, satisfactory microscopic sections of the mineral were obtained, except for the determination of the outline. Several ~mall but good crysta:s were made out in the rock, with a lens. As seen thus, the general form tallies with that described by Prof. L,awson. The mineral here is deep brownish red in color, with a pronounced cleavage, the cleavage surfaces presenting a some- what metallic luster. The central por- tion of the crystals is usually dark green. The forms which the slides present are of two types, both hexag- onal, one with a pronounced cleavage, the other without a cleavage but with a distinct fibratiou at right angles to the direction of elongation. The cleavage is well shown by a se- ries of parallel and narrow, open seams, to whichthe extinction is in all cases parallel. In sections in which the cleavage is wanting the extinction is always parallel to the longer direc- tion of the section and to the fibration. of Avalon, at the City Hall until two o'clock P.

There arc not many people who, in setting out to learn more about their state, would think offhand of looking into the cauliflower industry in Cali- fornia. And yet in the central and southern sections of the state, more than fifteen thousand acres of fertile soil are devoted to cauliflower raising, and these areas supply the United States with more than seventy-five per cent of all that is consmned. Even cauliflower is not without its interest- ing history. It had its origin on the coasts of England and Southern F~u- rope, and was known as "Cypress Coleworts," or cabbage of Scientific developments and improve- ment of the plant began, and by 1883 it took the form we know today. And by 1894, California was shipping its first few carloads of cauliflower. Catalina Island will give you the "rest of yotw life"--in whichever sense you choose to take it.
