through similar landscape iu 'Califor

Mount Shasta bursts into view and

Iu due time you reach the wide, fer
tile and lovely Sacramento valhM
which has been embalmtd in song.
Save for a largo tract of marsh land,
which tho eye cannot cover the valley
merits all tbe nice things that have
been said about it. Here aro splendid
orchards and vineyards some of the
latter embracing an entire quarter sec
tion; thousands of acres of level pasture
and lands, dotted with cattle, horses
sheep; immense wheat fields, which are
now, however, only brown fatubble-,' for
the harvest time is past, and this part
of California is not as attractive as
earlier iu tho season.
Down below Sacramento ia a town
called Benecia. Don't stop at Benecia-
if you can possibly avoid it. Better pass
right on and visit Oakland aud San
Francisco. Beutcia is all right, but it
needs considerable fixing.
But you must move on eastward, and
finally reach the foothills of the Sierra
Nevadas. And here, you see fruit
miles and miles of brick-red soil and
beautiful well-kept orchards and vine
yards, and after awhile you reach a
stretch of country where for miles but
little is seen save barren whitish, yel
lowish and reddish soil, broken into
basins, knolls, seams, furrows and pin
nacles. But it is a very interesting
scene, for the memories of
ThedayHof old, the days of gold,
The days of M9
come rushing upon you. Jlere were
the original gold discoveries, wlmt a
busy scene it must have been ! What
a wealth of history, of poetry and fic
tion have emanated from these famous
old placer diggin's! The sight alone is
worth the price of the trip to any
American who is not too thoroughly
encased in the sentiment proof armor
of self-esteem or ignorance of his na
tion's history. I
But wo can't tell it all. Littlo weekly

You pass on and on, through Nevada,
which has much of interest and much
in common with her sisters on the east
and west. On and on till you reach
Ogden-andthe long and interesting
Southern Pacific run is ended.
Only a few minutes' run from Ogden
is Salt Lake the City of the Saints
with which most of our readers have
become familiar through reading or
actual observation. All the Oregon
editors got out of tbe city with their
wives. It is an interesting place -and
very much American. ;
From Ogden begins the pleasant trip
over the Denver & Rio Grande or the
Rio Grande Western, a branch of the
famous system. This line is noted for
its scenery, the finest of which is en
countered ou the Denver & Rio Grande
proper, from Grand Junction to Deu ver,
This ran fairly bristles with eights,
eql you can't afford to miss it, There
are beauty spots too numerous to men
tion. From the pretty and bustling city of
Denver you resume the whirl eastward
via the Rock Island system. Soon the
Rockies are left behind and you are glid
ing over the grass-covered foothills,
which furnish pasturage for countless
numbers of cattle and horses. With
scarcely areceptible change you reach
the plains oTbleeding Kansas- Kansas
isn't bleeding any more. Tito people
have renounced the hollow theories and
fallacies of Sockless Jerry Simpson and
returned to their first political love; tho.
grasshoppers have vanished from the
land; onco rnoro the rain faUs alike up
on the just and the unjust; there is
promise ot an abundant narvest, anil
tbe'Jayhawkers are apparently at peace
with the world and their own consciences.
And then comes Nebraska, with its
memories ot boyhood days, and also
some of later years. Nebraska also pre
sents a very promising surface t hat
is, in the south and eastern part of the
state as far north as Omaha t lie only
part we traveled through. Tho faces
of Omaha friends looked good to, us,
but that is about all. The convention
of tho National Editorial Association
was a success, and the. editors and their
too watchful wives wore royally enter
tained. With these subjects wc shall
not weary tho reader.

mentioned but don't go ''in the good

We had almost overlooked Iowa.
From Omaha over the Rock Island is a
pleasant trip (when tho weather is

Dear Webfoot, if you ever get an op

and Yaquina Bay in particular.
