A Letter From Got, Fnra&s,
Los ANOKiiiw, Cal., Sept. 11, 1881.
As you aro aware, I loft Brownvillo
on tho 20th of last month.on very short
notice, hastily, and with rather vaguo
impression as to whore I was going and
what for, othor than that tho then
point of destination was San Fran
cisco. At Omaha I joined my assoclato on
tho commission, Judge T. C Jones, of
Ohio by tho way, an exceedingly
pleasant gontlomnn, nnd travolingcnm
panlon. Leaving Omaha on tho 110th
we mado quick time from that point
to San Francisco. Passing through
tho fertilo valloy of our own Platte, wo
climbed, in dun time, tho Sherman
Summit of the mountains, eight thou
sand two hundred feet "up in tho
world." Then on over Laramie Plaihs,
through Bocky Mountains and down
Echo and Wobbor canyons to Ogdon,
tho terminus of V. P. It, It. From
thore by the C. P. It. It. along the great
Humboldt valley, over Sierras, Into
Sacramento Valloy, and across the Bay
into tho city of mugnlllcont buildings- -

ference and acquaintance making.
The Southern California Horticultural
Fair being held bore, from the fifth to
the tenth, I was dolcguted to take in
that, and here I am, tlvo hundred miles
south of San Francisco, and over twen
ty-five hundred miles from Brownvillo.
Los Angeles, the City of Angels, or
rather tho Angel's City, while old, is
yet very new, comparatively speaking.
On Monday lnst September ftth its
first centennial celebration was held.
It is an old Spanish Catholic town, or
mission. Until within the decade just
closed it was but little else. Since the
completion of tho Southern Pacific It.
It. through tho town and valley, a now
impetus was given; and now we find
a city with twenty thousand Inhabi
tants. American population, enter
prise and business predominating. Be
ing a semi-tropical region, the climate
is fine and products abundant. In fact
I am surprised at the character and
yield of products in and about this
locality. In addition to the tropical
products oranges, lemons, figs, Limes,
bannanas, pomegranates, olives, and
llowora without end, corn wheat, oats,
barley, apples, vaches, and our vari
eties grapes are grown in great abund
ance. 1 saw at tho fair here speci
mens of corn yielding one hundred and
thirty bushels tothejwre! Potatoes
Early Rose weighing Jour pounds
each, and yielding nine hundred busfi
els to tho acre. Mangel boots, weigh
ngforty'Jl or. pounds each! In those
I was like Davy Crocket's coon I just
come down without being shot at.
Tho show of tropical fruits and pro
ducts was fine oranges, lomons, figs,
dates, limes, olives, grapes, raisins, oils,
wiuoH, nuts, etc., ad libitum. Apples,
peauhea and plums could not be ex
celled. Tho finost specimens of Red
Juno, Whito Winter Poarmaln, Jona
than, and Rhode Island Greening apples
I over saw anywhoro,
Here much is done without irriga
tion. Principally with, however. An
Indiana colony at Pasedenia, thirty
miles distant from Los AngoloB, pre

irrigation, and carried off the first

Sinoo here I have vialtod tho most
extensive nnd ono of tho oldest orango
groves orchards in tho Stato. One
hundred and ten acros. Many of tho
trees weroplnntod noar fifty years ago,
now yielding four thousand to five
thousand orangos each a year. It ia
known as tho Wolfnkill orchard. Or

To-morrow I visit a thirty thousand
aero farm near here Ranch Every
thing horo is callod a Ranch: Homo

so on, On this ranch aro twonty-llve
thousand shoop and other Mock in
proportion; six bund rod acres in
grapes, and four hundred more being
planted. The object being a ono thou
