the settlement of Riverside, a typieal
fruit town, created y ditch water in the
iiiid.,t of an absolute desert. The bare primi
tive wildeniens still frowns all around it, and
on the outskirts you may watch the suc-if:-:sive
stages of the process by width tho
bidious waste is converted Into an cver-ox-aim'.irig
garden. Tho town lies seven niilei
souih of the line of the Southern I'aciUc rail
road in San Beruaniino county, the near
est station U-ing the juneti.m toAii of
Colton. It is in this n-gion that the traveler,
...ing east by rail, makes tlw rapid transition
f j o a tiie cultivated plain country' to the hope
less wilderness of sand and rock and cactus
which extonds into Jlexico; and the San
;o:-Konio pass, f.anketl by the ft San
Deniardiuo and San Jacinto Mountains, is
visible apparently only a lew miles beyond,
though it is much further than it lot Its. By
this pass the railroad enters the desolation of
tiie great Colorado desert. There is a strong
foretaste of the desert all around Colton. The
lif-jard. soil bears grease-wood and other
.tubby growth intilotchcsaiul shows between
them a hard surface baked like brick. There
is not even a stunted tree c to break the
dismal monotony-. Tho stage road to River

The site of Riverside is so nearly flat that
you do not see the place until you are almost
i.i it, and you do n-jt realize its extent until
you try to walk through it. With tho con
tiguous settlement of Arlington (tho two
places aro really one town, Riverside having
tbe shops and Arlington the beat houses), it
stretches nearly twelve miles, with a
breadth of perhais two mil' s. As it is fait
growing, it will soon be as lui-ge as Manhat
tan island. Its population doers not exceed
! :5,(XX), but ample room is needed for tho grapes
and oranges. Almo:-X every nouso is set. in a

the exriiucnt of watering the arid expanse
iiegan; but tho beiuty and prosperity of
Riverside are of much more recent date, for
it is only within seven years or there
abouts that it has made any rapid advance.
A large proportion of the orange
trees, therefore, are hardly in bearing.
Bat young as tho town is, it lias accom
plished wonders in the direction toward
which the pioneers of the wilderness are usu
ully slow to turn their attention. It has
taken great pains with its looks, most of the
houses are built with an eye to effect; many
handsome villas show the latest fashions in
.sre hitccture; the churches and the large pub
lic school-houses are handsome, and the dis
play of flowers is by far tho finest I have
s-eeu in California. Better still, the early
settlers planted shade trees in abundance,
and these have already grown to pro
portions; so that all over the town there
are pleasant walks, protected by the
cypress, the pepper and the eucalyptus. In
Arlington there is a famous broad avenue,
divided by a central row of pepper trees into
two drives, and bordered on both sides by
orange groves and pretty villas, with trim
hedges and shade trees, and with flowering
plants adorning the margin of the irrigating
ditch which runs by the pathway. This
avenue is no less than six miles long. "And
there is plenty of room on the desert to make
it longer," said an Arlington gen
tleman; "we have had to ex-so.-i
I it once already." Of coarse there are
parts of the town which still look rough and
unfinished; but the habit of neatness seems
nearly universal. The cultivation is thor
ough, the gardens are jt terns of propriety,
the streets are clean, the ditches, which might
so easily become a nuisance, are well kept.
Riverside aud Arlington could hardly look
letter if they were the most extensive suburbs
The water which has worked these marvels
is brought by a canal from the Santa Anna
river, which it taps near Colton. It is con
veyed by a substantial wooden flume across
the ravine which separates Riverside and Ar
lington, and it is distributed through the set
tlements by an elaborate S3'stem of ditches.
Before planting the land must be graded with
a gentle and nearly uniform slope. The sup
ply ditch is c aixied along the tipper edge of
the field, and the water is allowed to run from
small lateral orifices into shallow channels
marked for it in the loose soil between the
trees or vines. Then the dry earth is turned
over it to prevent caking. In Riverside the
watering lasts forty-eight hours, and is re
peated at intervals of a month or six weeks
'rom May to October. In exceptionally dry
ears a little irrigation is required in winter
also; but ordinarily the showers during that
season are sufficient.
A physician of my acquaintance declares
that in his opinion tho irrigating system
renders Riverside an unfit residence for the
sick. But there is rarely any irrigation ia
winter, nor is there when the water is turned
on any appreciable amount of decaying vege
taticn to send olf malarious exhalations.
The well kept canals contain a clean running
stret jn, and the vineyards and orange groves
in which the water is allowed to stand con
tain only dry soil, free from even a blade of
The chief objection to Riverside, I presume,
is the wind. For that it has a bad name.
Surroun led, although it is by spurs and
branches of the mountain range, the barrier
is net complete, and it is subject to severe
blasts both from the north and from the sea.
The northers blow hard in December anJ
January, end the soa-winds sometimes bring
fog. The fogs are not frequent enough to l
worth considering, but the wind in Calif -nia
is a great trial to pel-sons with affet tio :
of tbe throat or lungs.
iseerUer'4 first Taste online,
I had an intense curiosity to know how
wine tasted. K my f atlior had called me up
and said, "My boy, I see you want to know
about this," and had given me a taste of
Madeira, I might have been cured. I know
the tasto cured me. Well, I laid up all my
pennies assiduously together with Woodi-uSf ,
who was my playmate, and finally got
enough to buy a pint of port or Madeira, I do
not know which it was. Then we skulked
down Into the meadow, and got a secluded
fence where nobody would see us, and got a
tumbler, and I well remember the feeling of
expectation that I had as my curiosity was

Their Peculiarities and: Why They
Claim to be Xew Yorker Whes
Away From Home.
I took a real, out-and-out Brooklyn gW
with me to the Academy of Music there. She
was so flilTcivnt a creation from anything I
was lined to in New York that, not having
met her for a long time, I fell to studying
her. 1 liked her because bhe was evidently
well-meaning and good-hearted aud indetend
eut (every girl of them ia iiidejwiident), aud
liecauso bhe dix-ssl in such dull -olorn. If
you aro at all dressy yourself it's always
pleasant to liae a Brooklyn or a Philadel
phia girl for a t-omMuiion. They are so ex
cessively afraid of pronounced colors that
they are pretty sure to make a contrast that
is favorable to yourself. But as she wa
frightfully slangy, I actually hail to ask her
several tunes what she meant by things she
said. We got in with a carload of Brooklyn
girls, and it struck me that they acted as if
they owned tho railroad, but I sus.
pended judgment until I saw in a
theatre full of them that they be
haved In tho same way there. They
all seemed te know one another, and they
made themselves perfectly at homo, and
seemed to be saying, "This whole City is for
us, and we know it;" and, to be strictly
natural aud true to my subject, I ought to
add that they also seemed to say, "And don't
you forget it" They were not particularly
ill-bred or rude. It was all quiet and femi
nine enough, but yet this was what their con
fident manner, free and frank tones and
speech conveyed to my mind. And my com
panion told me as a positive fact that as soon
as a young woman quits school and enters
society she becomes the mistress of her father's
house, aud never afterward acknowledges
parental control in her affairs. The parlor ia
hers, and her mother and father come to her
and ask permission beforehand to entertain
company in it. - The daughter has for callers
whoever she likes, and they come and go as
she pleases, never being introduced to her
parents unless she happens to choose to present
them. She stays at home, or she dines out,
or she spends a night now and then with a
girl companion, at her own sweet will. Her
"company," as they call a sweetheart over
there, stays till midnight, and, perhaps,
makes a rule of doing so, and her parents
hear of her engagements from her companions,
sometimes, sooner than from herself. My
companion seemed amazed that I should see
anything extraordinary in this, and laid it
down as a rule worth observing that "if a
girl's going to be a woman and have charge
of her own house, the sooner she learns how
to take care of herself the better."
My qompanion belonged to as many clubs
as a young German in Berlin. She 6aid it
was the fashion in Brooklyn for women to
meet together a great deal at one anoth
houses, and that out of this custom have
grown the singing clubs, dramatic clubs,
lawn-tennis clubs, archery clubs, cooking
clubs, walking clubs, driving clubs, bowling
clubs, and I don't know what all she men
tioned and said she was a member of. When
she saw how interested I was In all she was
able to think of about Brooklyn, she broke
out with this rather surprising exclamation:
"I hope you like the way we do, for we are
New York girls about half of our time. All
snmrntr long, and whenever else we go away
from home, we all of us always say we're
from New York. Our fathers and mothers
are there in business, you know, and every
body knows New York, and altogether its
much easier and pleasanter to say we come
from there than to go to explaining all about
Brooklyn and and well, Beecher."

In personal appearance Mr. McDonald will
not show up as well as Ids wife, as he has a
large ungainly form, and anything but a nice
gait. It is a wonder that Mrs. McDonald
does nob put him to a severe drilling, as she
never fails to walk gracefully herself, and
the awkward manner of her husband must
surely annoy her.
McDonald's face is large, florid and round,
with no beard save a continuation of the
small border of hair that fringes the lower
part of his bald head, and forming a small
tuft low down at the collar in front. His
face would not be considered at all expressive,
but its lack in that respect may come from

McDonald is a gfeat worker, though no one
ever considered him a brilliant practitioner.
He does the heavy office work, and his strong
frame and massive brain make him capable
of wading through a deal of difficult business.
He is associate with John M. Butler, one of
the prominent Republicans of the state and a

Henry Watterson, of the Louisville Courier
Journal, has long been a close friend and ad
mirer of McDonald, and I think, they are
working for a presidential ticket to contain
both their names, and to have .for the battle
cry in the next campaign a union of the north
and south upon closer and more cordial
Mr. Hendricks and Mr. Watterson have
been enemies for a dozen years, and a ticket
with Watterson's name on it will not meet
with Hendricks' hearty approval, to say the
There is much seculation as to whether
Hendricks will support McDonald for the
presidential nomination, and if he is satisfied
that McDonald is allied with Watterson it is
safe to say that he will declare war. This
would certainly prevent McDonald from hav
ing the united support of the TnriiA delega
tion in the convention, and most likely would
result in tho nomination of some one outside
of Indiana. Hendricks is not without in
fluence with his party in Indiana, and with
his health regained it may be one blast from
his bugle-horn were worth a thousand men.
Mrs. Hendricks has been the manager of
her husband's political fortunes for many
years past, and she has become quite noted
in political circles not only in this state, but
in the south and west.
Pygmalion and the Statue.
New York World.
Pygmalion, a statuary of Cypress, who
hated women, and resolved never to marry,
fell earnestly In love with his own marble
statue of the goddess Venus, which at his
passionate prayer was vivified, whereupon he
proposed marriage to it But the beautiful
creation, justly indignant, refused to have
anything to do with a man who, while he
was about it, might just as well have chiseled
her out a spring bonnet and a summer silk
dress, but was too mean to do it, and mar
ried his wealthy grandfather, whom she In
duced to disinherit the unfortunate artist. ,
Murat Halstead has given a 450-pound bell to
the First Methodist church of a town in Kan

A Homogeneous People.
Henry Watterson. .
The notion that there is a radical difference
between the inhabitants of the two sections
of the Union is false. For years, to take a
ready example to prove the contrary, tho
state of Mississippi was about equally divided
In confidence and admiration of two opposing
party leaders, one of whom was born and
reared in the state of Maine, and the other of
whom was born and reared in the state of
Pennsylvania. One of the greatest of South
Carolina's governors and senators came there
from Massachusetts. The most potent, if not
the ablest, statesman of Louisiana was five-and-twenty
years of age before he ceased to
be a citizen of New York. There are in fact,
no differences of race ; and, if a single genera
tion of Yankee boys could be sent south to be
educated, in exchange for an equal number
of southern lads, to bo sent north for a like
purpose, tho very conceit would bo
laughed to scorn. Wo are a most
homogeneous people; we naturally love,
not hate, one another; and if a stop could bo
put to the kn&gginfr, tbe terms north and
south would become the simplest of geograph
ical expressions. I say this to you, young gen
tlemen of the south, in no bombastic spirit. I
am glad to say it, and I am proud to say it
because it pays a grateful . tribute to our
country. But from the inner depth3 of my
thought and heart I believe every word of it.
Let each section, therefore, put its house in
order. Let each look to its own faults.
Neither Is likely to 'exercise any good in
fluence by criticising the features of the
other, and both should vremember the
motherly crab, who, reprcJaehing her off
spring for a certain obliquity of gait, was
gently reminded of her own. Nowhere in
our country is the taking of Uf e punished ad
equately. East and west, north and south,
the manslayer who goes into court with
plenty of friends and money has at least an
even chance with the jury. . I am not pre
pared to say that he has a greater chance
south than west; on the whole, lam inclined
to think he has not.
William 91. Evarts Hquelchlns: an
John B. Alley, of Massachusetts, one of the
greatest egotists who ever sat in congress,
resides in Washington during sessions of con
gress. He entertains well. Atone time he
gave a dinner, and among the noted guests
William M. Evarts, ex-secretary of state,
was present. During the whole evening Mr.
Alley had the bad taste to monopolize the
conversation, and he incessantly talked of
himself. At last after he had spent the bet
ter part of the eveniug in regaling those
present with what President Buchanan had
asked Mr. Alley, and how Mr. Alley had re
plied to Buchanan, of hew Abraham Lincoln
had greeted Alley on a certain occasion, and
how Salmon P. Chase had advised with him
on another, Mr. Evarts was asked if he had
anything to say. He replied that he had a
single story to tell. It was about Columbus.
Said he: "You remember the anxiety of the
mind of Columbus as the time arrived when
he had calculated he should arrive on the
shores of the new country. Morning after
morning he appeared early on the deck,
straining his eyes in looking towards the
west. At last, one day as he gazed through
his glass, his face was seen to shine with sur
prise. He looked long and earnestly, ajid
finally handed the glass to his most intimate
friend at his side, saying: "There, Alley,
there is land at last; embrace me, Alley; our
fortunes are made.' "
The long series of centennial anniversaries
of the revolution will wind up with a celebra
tion of the proclamation of peace at New
burg, N. Y., in October. A monument to
Washington and his associates is to be erected
on the site of the general's headquarters.
The patriot army, it will be remembered, dis
banded at Newburg. A day of festivities in
commemoration of this event will be timely,
for we are a peaceable, not a warlike, nation.
The next centennial of national importance
will be that of the adoption of tbe constitu
tion, in 1887, and in 1S92 will occur the 400th
anniversary of the discovery of America.
This ought to be celebrated by a world's fair
similar to that of 1ST6.
