THE ENTERPRISE CORRESPOND
ENTS SWEEP THE FIELD.
An Ortpmlan Abroail.
Riai.to, Calil., Oct. U (To the E titer)
-M believe I promised you to eiul some
lei ten to the Enterprise, giving my ini
pressions in regard to this country, ami I
nas requested by many friends to write to
them, most of whom I referred to t lie let
ters 1 intended to send to the Enterprise,
thus saving myself the tiresome task of re
peating the same things over and possibly
benefitting your paper a little. If, in these
letters I should refer often to the state of
my health and the (fleet ot the climate on
the tame, do not set it down as Indlrailng a
great amount of egotism in supposing that
your readers care very much for the same,
except as my experience may be of benefit
to others who are also seeking a change for
the benefit of their health. It would be
useless to give a description of each town
or orange district, as a general description
would apply to all of them. I will try and
ftfve your readers some idea as to this
district about Rial to.
Nine yeara ago all this section was a des
ert covered with wild plum brush, grease
wood and cactus. Now there is from a
thousand to fifteen hundred acres in
oranges, lemons, olives, with some peaches
and prunes, from one to eight years old.
A STATEMKNT CORRhVTKD.
IUwkh Ckkik, Oct, 2.V An Item appear
ing In your correspondents' column of 0v
toner 1.1. does me and my friends an Injus
tice, and I desire to hereby refute the lal e
charges made. The Mink correspondent
Intimates that a dance was held at the home
of Mr. Hermann on the Sabbath. The
facts are that on Sunday afterneon a num
ber of friends gathered at my house to bid
good bye to my son, who left the following
day for Washington. The party was com
composed of some of the hestcitlscns of the
county, and the whole allnir was simply
a friendly gathering in which masle and
friendly Birt played a leading part. No
one but a crank or a neighborhood gosslper
could have found objection and any fair
inlmled cititen who will lake the pains to
read his entire communication will not
credit the writer with good sense, let alone
It is well to have the news properly gath
ered from all parts of the county, but such
slush is intend! only to create discord in a
neighborhood and I regret that it has found
place In the Enterprise.
If yon will give space to this correction,
you will confer a favor uion,
The saltan's htir is not bin eldest

me hundred feet wide extends from the
railroad three miles north and is bordered
on both sides by a row of beautiful euca
lyptus and pepper trees with too rows
through the center and a fine track each
side. One half mile back from the railroad
this is intersected by another avenue run
ning east and west for a distance ot sixteen
miles, also bordered on each side with trees,
orange and lemon orchards of from five to
ten acres each.
There is no more beautiful sight than a
well kept orange orchard. And they are all
well kept, not a bit of grass or weeds being
allowed to grow.
The orange and lemon is an evergreen
with rery dark green leaves, interspersed
on ine ouisuie oi me tree witn a new
growth of light green leaves
The bouses and yards are surrounded
with man) varieties of beautifuf tropical
and semi-tropical ornamental trees among
which are several species of palms, eucalyi.
lus, pepper and hedges of cypres. But
the most beautiful of all is the umbrella
tree, just the shape of an umbrella w ith
such a dense growth of dark green leaves
that no sunlight can penetrate them.
Nearly every yard has a century plant four
or fire feet high and aa many broad.
It is hard to realize that this has all been
done within the last nine years, and when
I travel up and down these avenues, bor
dered by stately trees, amid orange and
lemon groves, it brings to my mind the
Arabian Night's tales and it seems as if
Aladdin with bis wonderful lamp must
have been at work here.
Lest I tire you and your readers, I will
close for this time, amd if I have been too
tedious throw this in the waste basket, or
give it to ycur readers in installments, or if
you wish any more send your peper to me
at Phoenix, Arizona, and in my next I will J
give you some of the drawbacks or di
greeahle features of the country.

The sultan's eldest foil, Priuco Sclim,

"dangerous. " He lives a lifeof freedom,

the Ottomans, a kind of life prisoner.

How lo Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
sediment or settling indicates an un
healthy conditions of the ' kidneys.
When urine stains liner, it is evidence of
kidney trouble. Too frequent desire to
urinate or pain in the back, is also con
vincing proof that the kidneys and blad
der are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain in the
back, kilne s liver, bUdder and every
part of the urinary passages. It corrects
inability to hold urine and scalding pain
in passing it, or hail effects following use
of liquor, w ine or beer, and overcomes
that unpleasant necessity of being com
pelled to get up many times during the
nijiht to urinate. The mild and the ex
traordinary effect of Swamp-Root is noon
realized. It stands the highest lor its
wondeiful cures of the most distreHKing
cases. If you nee I a medicine you
should have the bet. Sold hy druggists,
piiee fifty cents and one dollar. You
may have a sample bottle and pamphlet
butli sent by mail. Mention Okkoo.v
City ExTEKFrisB and send your address
to Dr. Kilmer A Co., Bingharnton, N. Y.
