Long Beach. Cal.. Feb. 3. '13.
Kditor, the News: Last week
(Thursday) e went to Los Angeles,
then on trolley car to the old San
Pad re Mission, an all-day ride of about
100 miles through the orange groves.
This trip is advertised for one dollar,
but before you get back to Long Beach
you have paid out $4.75. However, I
do not regret it. The party was made
up of tourists two cars of about SO.
The genial conductor used a mega
phone to point out the homes of weal
thy people who have built elaborate
places. Among them was the widow
of President Garfield and many others
too numerous to mention.
Pasadena is certainly a beautiful city
the best place I have yet seen,
especially the Bush Garden. It is
said to have cost $1,000,000 and it
costs many thousands a year to keep
it in order. It is certainly far grander
than I can describe.
Pasadena has wide streets that are
kept clean and, in fact, I give Cali
fornia credit for its well-kept cities
and towns. ' i "1 J
Interviews Orange Growers
I walked through quite a number of
the orange orchards and talked with
the owners. They said that all the
fruit was killed and they were shaking
it off and plowing it under. Well, it
was a sorrowful sight to see the yel
low fruit on the trees and on the
ground. They looked good but take
one and you find it soft and what you
might call mushy.
I examined the trees. The twigs are
frozen from four to eight inches and
will have to be pruned back, which will
be quite a task, while many trees are
killed, more especially the nursery
stock. From the car I could see acre
after acre, mile after mile of oranges
and nothing else. As they are not all
rich the freeze will work a hardship
on many. This country lies along the
foothills of the snow-capped Sierre
Mad re Mountain. The soil is mostly
sand and gravel.
Smudging Did Little Good
Now about smudging. I could see
no difference where the smudge pots
were and where they were not used
The pots are of woven wire about five
inches high and three Inches in width.
They resemble somewhat the grubs
taken out of land that has been grub
bed and sca'tered over the ground.
We went on to the San Gabriel Mis
sion, said to have been built A. D. 1771.
We were through it from top to bot
tom and will say tha it is a curio, but
one that I did not care to put in my
den, therefore I did not offer to pur
Sees Ostrich Ranch
The next stop was at the renowned
Caweston Ostrich Farm on the foot
hills of the treat Sierre Madre Moun
tain. There are about 100 birds, large
and small. It requires eight months
to hatch them and when out of the
shell they roll around cn the ground
like footballs for several days, then
make growth very fast.
It was very amusing to see young
girls and some older ones astride of
one bird marching around the yard.
Before they get on they drew what
looked to me like a woman's stock
ing over the bird's head. In feeding
them a man would stand on a box
about 4 ft high and then reach up with
an orange. The bird would stretch up
and take the orange In his mouth
and it would slowly pass down his
neck about six feet and disappear. In
standing In this position the bird is
about ten feet in height.. The yards
or pens, of which there ar many, keep
them separated at special times. When
mated they are said to be married and
Los Angeles county has bonded for
thousands of dollars to build roads and
they have splendid thoroughfares
thrughout the county.
The residents seem to have that fac
ulty of advertising more so than any
other place on the coast. They send
tons of literature all over the United
States, and they seem to be very so
ciable to all tourists, more especially
the real estate men. The latter takes
you out in autos and for free boat rides
and point out all the places of interest,
but rarely speak of the frost except
to say that it never happened before.
Now if Portland or Hood River
could or would take the same Interest
they would get more settlers as Ore
gon has thousands or acres of the most
productive land on the coast.
Finds Poor Apples
Now a word about our apples that
are sent down here. I made a special
Investigation of the apples that were
on sale in the grocery stores and I
found one box of Swars that were very
good and they were the best I saw. I
have talked with many tourists who
all say, "Why, I supposed you had the
best apples on earth, but If theae are
a sample they are not one-half as good
as those we have In Ohio, Indiana,
Kansas and other states." Here, Is
where the best apples should come as
they rearh n.any .tourists from a dis
tance and when you sen one person
eating oranges you will see a dozen

Is a healthy and thriving apple orchard
set out by a brother, A. G. Marshall, in
1857. The trees came from a nursery
in the vicinity of Oregon City. There
are several varieties of apples in this
old orchard, but the Baldwins last year
were as perfect as any fruit could be
both in color and flavor. No special
attention has been given the orchard,
but It has been properly pruned and

mountains of Easten Oregon at the
present time than for several years

"A supper Just before bedtime," says
Dr. Woods Hutchinson, "Is Just as nu
tritious and often more delightful than
after getting up." He also advocates
the use of pie twice a day and urges
people to eat whatever they like to
eat. It Is doubtful if the American
people really realize what a grand
man Dr. Hutchinson really is.
