Some Features of at Westnrn 8tate Com
prel to KBg-land Cottd Advice for
Those Who Think of Making The-ir
Uoms la That Marvelous Country.
I am writiiif? ou Jan. 14. Over in the
mihl cliuiate of England my fellow gar
deners are protecting their plants from
front ami sheltering carefully all those
potted plants which they are going to
force for the market. California is
large twice the size of England, I
should nay. But if you want to find a
place hero where you would have to do
the like in your profession you would
have to hunt the cool and somewhat
treacheroiiM bay surroundings of our me
tropolis, or you would have to climb the
peaks of our Sierras, and then you would
have to reach an elevation of 3,000 feet
before finding places with a real winter.
We have no winter here, and what is
generally called winter is understood to
be the rainy season. This season is very
mild, and we work at our places here in
the foothills of tho Sierras in shirt
sleeves today and call it a most beauti
Our foothills rival the valley; we have
the high mountains at the back of us
protecting us from tho dry winds of tho
plains east of them and giving us the
benefit of the warm reflection of the sun,
which shines here almost every day.
Our grapes ripen at 2,000 feet elevation,
but seven days later than those from
the Fresno region; while our climate is
not so hot, being easier reached by the
winds which blow every day from the
ocean. We can dry raisins in the sun
in spite of tho occasional early rains
which set in once in awhile in the hay
ing season, at the end of July.
The highest temperature I have re
corded for four years was 112 degs.
Fahr. in the shade. I must say for a
person coming from a cool climate, like
that of England, this is anything but
agreeable. But then 112 degs. np in tho
mountains feels nothing like that heat
in the valley, where no air may blow at
the time. Hot spells last usually from
three to five days, and then again we
record 90 degs. to 95 degs. , or even 85
degs. Fahr., for weeks at a time. By
the time a person has been living here
for say five years he gets pretty well
used to it and lives through it just like
A HEALTHY CLIMATE.
It is healthy here. The air is won
derfully pure, and the fogs which visit
us from the ocean are quite pleasant,
pure and refreshing. The Coast range
is different altogether. It is affected by
the evaporation of the ocean, and conse
quently cooler and temperate. The
Coast range cuts the valley sharply
from the ocean border, and its peculiar
ity is best demonstrated by alluding to
the fact that, while the grape never
ripens at San Francisco, ten miles from
it, just behind the Coast range, there
lies the land which supplies the city
nearly all the year round with the most
Most people who come to California
usually stop and stay at San Francisco.
The climate is more agreeable, and there
are more fellow countrymen, and all the
advantages which city life offers. But
the most acceptable openings are in the
interior. Gardeners, as a rule, are peo
ple who are least afraid of anything, and
if they cannot get a job at their own
trade, very well, they try another.
Fruit growing is at its very best in
California, and its climate is adapted to
every kind in every part. The grape
will grow and ripen, rich " in alcohol or
sour like a Riesling, just as you choose
to pick your location. The orange is at
home south and north up to 1,500 feet,
and, wonderful to note, the apple will
ripen side by side with this subtropical
fruit. Olives seem destined to shade
every hillside which now gives ground
to pines and underbrush, and peaches
and apricots bring such wonderful re
turns that it is not surprising that Eng
lish capital seeks investment by the
If only the ground is kept cultivated
it needs no irrigation, and shoots of ten,
twelve or eveu fifteen feet in length on
two-year-old trees are something a per
son may see from the railroad car while
traveling through our glorious state.
The population of California is stili
small. One million and a quarter is all
this state's census gave as the number
of inhabitants. There will be homes for
just as many as may choose to come and
work their way. The great danger is
that the warm climate and the ease with
which the soil gives a return will make
the people too lazy. The young genera
tion springing up at the present is not
as energetic as their forefathers, from
whatever country they came. Times
have been too easy for the old folks if
they did not make any money through
labor they did so in trading, and as a
last and most important resource they
can fall back upon their real estate and
turn into money what the emigrants are
willing to buy. The estates are too
large altogether at present, and the
more they are cut up the better it
The man who comes here ought to
know a trade, and be a handy man all
around. He should be content to work
for other people for a time until he gets
accustomed to the ways of this climate.
And he should work at the wages which
the trade unions have established. As
he works for other people he has the best
opportunity to watch his chance without
running any risk. Jackson (Cal.) Cor.

Solomon's Temple, as described in the

very imposing structure in this day and

in height, with a portico or veranda C
feet long and 18 feet wide. We have
private houses that overshadow such an
unpretending structure. St. Louis -Republic.
About future) Hotel Harping.
I. "The day will come, and long before
we date our letters 1919, when the hotel
in thin country will have improvements
which will make tho guuU feel that
they have nothing to find fjtult with.
Certainly that will bo a great mt1m1 a
surprising one to the much ubunt-il hotel
E. L. llerrifield, president of the
Hotel Keeijern association, looked very
serious as lie uttered these words,
"What will those improvements be?
Many, very many; but just now I will
mention only ono or two, lest some
hotels begin tho new styles lefore jkjo
plo are used to the change from one sys
tem to another. Here's one, for in
stance: The hotels will to bo big in a
few years that when a guest gets tip,
aay on the twenty-ninth floor, he'll find
as he steps out of tho elevator that his
room is a quarter of a milo away, count
ing all the halls and corners he'll have
to travel through lief ore he gets there.
"Well, the halls will lie broad, and
electric cars, light and airy as wicker
baskets, will pass along every few min
utes. All he will have to do when he
gets on his floor is to press a button
the car will do tho rest. It will whiz
down his way with the conductor at tho
wheel like any cable car outdoors at
present, pick him up and he's in his
room before he's had time to say Jack
"You smile. I don't, for I'm serious.
More than that, hotels will probably
have private elevators for every largo
parlor room on top floors after the elec
tric car gets 'behind the age.'
"Take Kpace? Of course. But what
of that? The hotel keeper is supposed
to be tho only man who must sjiend all
he makes to benefit his guests. He does
not work for a living, like ordinary men.
Not he; lus fate from boyhood is mapjied
out to do everything lie can to make
others happy at his exiiense. But to re
sume. Tho private elevator of each
room will be soon followed if not ac
companied by pneumatic tubes for
trunks and baby carriages with the ba
bies in them, and smaller ones for let
ters and bundles.
"More than that. A visitor will, I feel
certain, be shot up through tho tulies
after the guests have seen their cards
and piped down, 'All right, send him
up.' It will be very stagelike to see an
apparent closet door fly open quickly
and the friend of your better days in
full dress and hat in hand step out as
one does in and out of a carriage in the
street and greet you with a smile, 'How
are you, old man? or words to that effect.
"Then think of the way overtaxed
tailors can be avoided, too, by their cus
tomers among the guests who have 'for
gotten' to settle up. How? Easily.
There will be no hotel registry, for the
moment a gnest is assigned to a room he
will probably walk up to a machine,
rattle over a few keys with a ien while
writing his name, and just as he signs it
it will appear on a card on the inside of
the proprietor's private office. Names
are signed miles away now by wire or
dispatches. Well, hotel men are close at
hand in this signature business. I hope
to live lon enough to see all the im
provements." Mr. Merrifield's eyes twinkled as he
concluded: "When the Hotel Keepers'
association meets one of these great im
provements is to be tested. Which one
it will be I don't know j-et, but that the
electric car in the hallways is a near
future event in hotel improvements is a
dead certainty." New York Herald.
An Awkward Blunder.
At a certain court of justice an awk
ward blunder was made by the prisoner
in the dock. He was being tried for
murder and the evidence was almost
wholly circumstantial, a chief portion of
it being a hat of the ordinary "billycock"
pattern that had been found close to
the scene of the crime, and which, more
over, was sworn to as the prisoner's.
Counsel for the defense expatiated upon
the commonness of hats of the kind.
"You, gentlemen," he said, "no doubt
each of you has just such a hat as this.
Beware, then, how you condemn a fel
low creature on such a piece of evi
dence," and so forth. In the end the
man was acquitted, but just as he was
leaving the dock he turned in a respect
ful manner to the judge and said, "If
you please, my lord, may I 'ave my 'at?'

Marriage by Proxy.
A curious custom among the rulers of
the Old World is marriage by proxy.
For instance, Francis II, the ex-king of
Naples, was wedded by proxy in 1859 to
Maria, a duchess of Bavaria. Of course
the marriage by proxy goes no further
than the ceremony. Exactly why it
should be done at all is not clear by past
or present history, unless to save the
prince the trouble of going after his wife
and give her a decent excuse for coming
In the case of Francis, he had never
seen Maria, and their first interview is
said to have been attended with consid
erable disappointment. In fact, if the
young man had not been already mar
ried by proxy he would probably have
never married the lady at all. Drake's

Public Omce In China.
The Chinese system of government
lacks entirely the progressive and uni
fying element of popular electiom The
people have no voice in the choice of
their rulers, and the rulers consider the
people as so many sheep to be fleeced.
The officials are paid starvingly low
salaries, and many offices are openly
bought. Corruption and extortion may
therefore be said to be almost sanc
tioned, the only restraint being the dread
of insurrection and the power of guilds,
clans and secret societies. There is im
perfect protection from robbers and
pirates, many villages preferring to sub
sidize robber bands rather than to have
to deal with the worse form of robbery
practiced by the officials. Westminster
