COME BACK, "CHRYSTAL!"
The San Mateo "Chrystal," whose subdued rays have been
flashing fitfully athwart the solemn gloom of the Alta's columns of late,
has suddenly had its light put out, and the patrons of that paper are groping
in unrelieved darkness again. Come back, "Chrystal," come back! --
even your mild intellectual twilight is better than this vacant, shrouding,
spirit depressing fog.
