day, men, women and children. It is
great sport for those that can endure
it; but there are some who can't stand it.
The city extends aloug the beach for
two miles and Is laid out to Twenty
fourth street. The north half is as
level as a floor, with a slight elevation
to the north. The south part is some
what broken. There are some tine
business houses and a good many Hue
residences. Many flue houses are now
vacant; they are owned, by people who
live In Los Angeles, who come litre for
the summer. The different churches
are well represented. Secret societies
are numerous, but there is not a Grand
Army poht In the city." The nearest
post Is at Sawtell, four miles eat, where
the soldiers' home Is- located. There
are about 1,800 of the old men in the
home, and about 500 out on furlough.
The dcalliH at the home average about

could see some of the big fish caught
ho would Oiitihitler the catches made In
Hood Klver rather small fry. The
largpst one I have seen on the market
weighed 4S0 pounds. I haven'tcaught
any that weighed over 10 or 12 pounds.
The big llsh are caught about two
miles from shore.
We are all well and feeling flue since
we got over the colds contracted on our
trip down here. I haven't had any
rheumatism so fur and feel as if 1

sleigh, while standing in front of his
place of buainese, became frightened at
a loose horse and started down the street
at a lively eait. increasing their speed
as they went. As they neared Hanoa's
grocery thev left the street and took to
the sidewalk, holding right of way un
til Hanna's store was reached. Seeing
the piles of good things to eat in the
windows and finding the front door
open, they struck for the inside, the
near horse getting through while the
other remained on the outside. The
sleigh tongue just missed the door and
passed on the outside, smashing several
large glass in the show window. One
of the horses was thrown down by the
shock when they struck the store front,
and received some injury to its hind
legs. The sleigh tongue was broken,
but otherwise the sleigh received no in
jury. The damage to Mr. Hanna's buil
ding and stock will amount to -5 or $30,

We understand there is to be an
other contest on a homestead, which
will make the bovs stick a little closer
to their claims. It is much easier for
a mail to live up to the law than to
fight a contest.
