road once more. This time we set
our course Southwest by South and
so over to San Juan Capistrano,
where we entered with reverence the
old Mission. We had read much ot
the history of the work of those old
Franciscan padres and their work
among the Indians. It was a greatl
privilege to visit this old Mission,
which was established the same year

Clt> Recorder Guy Tex is proudly
showing the beautiful framed und
tinted picture of his home which
was awarded to him for winning
first prize for the most beautiful
yard in the CouUMt Iasi spring. The

represents the hest in
the photo­
graphic art. The tinting is very real­
istic, being copied exactly from the
original colors of the house Itself.
Even the flowers about the yard are
properly colored.
At tlie time the contest this year
was being arranged, Mr. A. H. Ban-
well. manager of the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce offered a
prize on behalf of the Chamber of a
trained photograph ot the prize-
winning yard and home. Mr. Tex

Mr Tex has spent a great deal of
time and hard work on his yard
sinee purchasing the place threo
years ago. As one walks about the
beautiful lawn and examines the
rock garden, lily pool and the seem­
ingly endless array of beauty one re­
alizes how worthwhile such efforts
are. And we are told Mr. Tex has
plans for a lot more improvements
in the near future.
