letter as he wrote it.
Faniosa, Cull., April, 2?, 1904.
Dear Mother; As I have, or we have
reached our destination I will write and
tell you how we fnred on the way. It
took us four days to come. We got to
Crawford and could net, ticket over the
Southern Pacific for 28 00 and w went
by the way of Denver. We liud to sUy
over there about 12 hour, so we ot on
a street car and rode over the city and
took in the sights. The next place we
laid over was at Ogden and that was at
night so we did not run around much
The next plao to stop over was Sacra
mento, and we only had to stop about
four hours but we would juxt as soon
stopped there two or three days. We
had to stop at every fruit tree and ex
amine it. The first sight after w cross
ed the raountians was no orange orchard,
My I how pretty it looked and from there
on we saw some of the prettiest orchards
and hay meadows. You can't imagine
how good we felt when we crossed the
mountains and struck the California
breece. They felt soft as silk and it
seemed as though we were entering the
garden of Eden. It does not seem any
warmer here than there but it will get
warmer io the summer. We found
Uncle Joe at home and he said he would
hare a job for both of u in 3 or 4 days.
Mont will ride but I don't know what I
will do. We went to Sunday school to
day and there was a very small attend
ance, about IS. There isn't any one but
the superintendent that taken much in
terest. He taught the Bible class and
there wasn't any one answered que
tion. The Sunday school has not been
going long. If I am close here I am go
ing to try and get the young people in
terested, There is not anything doing
her on Sunday. They have a dance
eyery month so they say. I think I
shall try and organise a League so there
will be something to go to in the evening
I have not been here long enough to tell
you bow I like it but so for I think this
is the prettiest place there is and ths peo
ple here say that if I stay six months
they will guarantee I wilt never leave
here to stay. Uncle Joe and aunt Emma
are very well and unci John lire about
26 mils from here. I will writ you
more about the country next tima.
Lovingly your son,
Howard C, Rcrir.

The Rt, Rev. Samuel Fal
lows, Bishop of the Reformed.
Episcopal Church, in speak
ing of the execution of three
Chicago car-barn bandits
said: The career of these
boys and their ending should''
be a lesson to the officers of
f)if law thn nhnrh- and t.hft
school that an immediate a
wakening is necessary in or
der to suppress crime. The
thingd that we must root out,,,
the things that brought these
boys to crime, are easily dis
cerned. They are:
' 1. The miserable bandit lit
erature with which our child
ren are allowed to gorge
themselves bookH snch as
adventures of the Younger
2. The plays where scenes of
lurid crime are portrayed'
3. The cigarette that dulhv ,
the moral perceptions and is
a great cause of youthful
crime. Nearly every boy ia.
the Pontiac Reformatory has;
been a cigarette fiend.
4. The want of proper par
5. The want of employmeat
for young people.
Chicago now shows to evil
doers at home and abroad:
that the law must be obeyed
and the violators of the law
punished. It all is caused
by the failure of these boys
to lead good Uvea, They
cherished the principal that.
it was best to live without
labor, They wanted some
thing for nothing. They
thought the world owed therrt.
living and tried to make it
redeem the obligation.
