The now horso disease called "PiiiK
oyo" is quite prevalent iu Chicago.
The horses generally get over it if
promptly and properly treated. The
verterinary surgeon of the Chicago
tiro department gives sjmptoms and
remedy as follows: The lirst symptom
of the disease is a running of tiie eyes
or a swelling about the nose. Then
tho legs swell, a high fcer sets in, the
horse becomes very depressed and re
fuses food. As soon as the fever is
broken tho equine patients recover
rapidly. Tho treatment is aconite, bella
donna, arseniuni, and sweating the head
and throat. The horse should bo en
couraged to eat, by giving Mm bran,
oats, corn ur anything that will
tempt Mm to eat. Give cold water
freely, and no warm food of any kind

Arthur is i'rosident now, and ho has
jiist as much right to choose his cab
inet ami make appointments its any
other President ever had. Wo remem
ber that gi eat stress was not long ago
laid upon tho fact that tho President
has tho right to appoint whomsoever
ho pleases to ollloial positions, mid that
it is nobody's business that nobody
has any right to even object, unless,
perhaps it be tho Senate, on continua
tion, If that doctrine was good three
months ago it is good yet, and any
yawp from those who persisted in that
view pf the matter, regarding what
President Arthur does, will be exceed
ingly cheeky and inconsistent. Yet,
wo conclude, that decent journalists
hnvo the right to indulge in criticisms,
find the people who elect Presidents
have the right to opinions, regarding
President Arthur's administration or
that of any other President who over
served in tho past or may servo in tho
future, ibis is a country where the
people rule and where otlicials from
President down to roid supervisor, are
servants of tho people, subject, all
alike, to their expressed approval or
disapproval. W'hon it shall bo other

Sept. 211, I.SSt.
From Los Angeles, I visited San
(iiibriol. San Hernardino. and regions
thereabouts, along tho foot-hills of the
Sierra Mountains, to this really, Para
dise iu tiie desert. Tho "regions there
abouts" refer to the old Spanish and
Mexican grants, or ranches, known as
San ltafel, San Pasqual, Santa Anita.
San Krandsquito, La Merced, and Po
trero (iiande, between the Sierras and
Coast ltiinge. Los Angeles, San (labriel
and San Hernardino Missions are
points of interest and record, historic as
grounds of military exploits by Kre
niont, Kearney and Stockton, in early
days. Tho general appearand of tho
country, in its primitive condition, isJ
similar to that ot the plains east of the
Itocky mountains. The soil helm;
composed of disintegrated rock, wash
ed Iroin tho iiiouniains, is exceedingly
fertilciind product ie, under irrigation.
Where water is added, grow now
thousands of acres ot iueyards, c.itrus
fruits, and others of tropical character.
To give an idea of what is being done
in this direction, 1 extract from my
note book, data obtained on tho ground,
from personal view and observation.
Stern & itose, near San (ialiriel, handled
and manufactured, tsso, twelve
millions pounds grapes, making four
hundred thousand gallons wine, and
one hundred thousand gallons brandy.
The mill for crushing grapes, is of'ca
paeity, one bundled tons per day. The
process ol making wine is very simple,
lirandy is made by distilling grapes.
Tho Paldwin Itancho consists of six
hundred acrA bearing vineyard, and
lour hundred acre!, more planted, not
jet bearing; two hundred and llfty
acres in orange trees, principally beat
ing; ten acres lemons; thirty acres al
monds; forty acres peal's; six acres
Lnglish walnuts, and twenty acres mis
cellaneous fruits. Iu addition, on this
farm, or rancho, are twenty-three
thousand sheep, one thousand" hogs,
one hundred blooded horses, and seventy-live
blooded cattle. Also two thou
sand acres iu wheat, six hundred iu
barley, and one thousand tons hay
Hoth for my own gratification, and
to inform Dr. Ilolladay, and other turf
fanciers, I visited the speed stables find
pastures of Mr. Itiililwiu. who is an ex
tensive deaier ill line horse llosh. lie
owns somw of the best in the state,
among others, the lamed race mare
"Mollie McCarty." She is now on the
retired list, used only for breeding. I
found her luxuriating in rich alfalfa
Ileitis, tilt as good gnus' and good care
could make her.
(!en. Sioneniaii, one of the horoes of
"the late unpleasantness," iias a two
hundred acre vineyard in full bearing,
together with a multitude of other
fruits incident to this soil and climate.
I found him, literally "resting iu the
shade of his own vine and tig tree." He
is near San (labriel.
These are samples of extensive farm
ing in California and mind you -the
fiuits of irrigation water applied to
otherwise barren unproductive soil.
A "grcrii spot in the desert," is the
"Pasadena Colony" iu this same vicinity--neiir
San (labriel. The pcoplo arc
fill from the old eastern slides, and the
ranches its they fire fill called arc iu
small tracts of forty, twenty and ten
acies. J I ere it was my good fortune
to meet Prof. Carr ami his good lady.
They are liom Hoston, Mast;., highly
educated and intelligent people, as are
nearly fill the colony. From them I
obtained much valuable information.
Mrs. Carr manages the place, giving it
her undivided personal attention. She
has foity acres, all planted, ami under
it high state of cultivation. Her
grounds partake largely of an experi
mental character. About all the varie
ties of trees- fruit ami forest vines,
shrubs and vegetables grown anywhere
tire found in greatest profusion find
luxuriance. Strawberries, tho largest
I ever saw, were served for lunch. 1
was informed they have them the year
round not a day in tho year, but a
"mess of berries" can be enjoyed. .Pas
adena can boast of churches, school
houses, lecture halls, good society, and
all other evidences of a high order of
civilization- until of recent date, rath
er a scarce commodity iu this particu
Riverside, is by far, the loveliest
spot I have found in Southern Califor
nia. The colony now numbers about
sixteen bundled active and permanent
residents all eastern people. Many
more have purchased land, fire building
ami arranging to enjoy tho luxuries in
cident to this peculiar, en jo able and
prolltahie section ol the state. It is
situate eight or ten miles from San Uer
darnino. on the Santa Ana Ulver,
nestled in the mountains, with the best
of soil and water abundant and con
venient lor irrigating purposes. Al
ready a complete system of irrigation
is in existence, about thirty miles
of canal, and over five hundred mllosof
ditches, convoying water to every por-
Hon of their hinds. The village is laid
off in two and a half acre lots. Then
follows a main avenue sixteen miles in
length, double track, trees planted iu
centre, and on both sides, the whole
distance. Immediately on the avenue,
are ten acre lots, next back, twenty
acre lots, and back of that, forty aero
tracts. Most of the ton acre lots are
now improved in great perfection. Fine
residences, mango, lemon, lime and
apricot orchards mid vineyards. River
side is a few miles off the now running
railroad -Southern I'aclllc. The road
from San Diego north to San Francisco
is being surveyed and will soon be con
structed, and running through the
place. At Collon, the present railroad
station, is located a fruit packing house,
which l visited iu search of data, and
found from an examination of their
books, they had packed the past year:
KiO.ooo ii$ lb cans apricots.
lo.ooo " " pwirs.
20,ooo " " tomatoes.
K) tons dried fruits.
200 " honey.
15 " bees-wax.
Jlesides these, a very largo business
is being done making raisins. The
main hvrc, no irliiv r braiuli. Hero I
saw for tiie first time the process of
milking raisins. ' It is simple. Drying
in the open air, on boards, or travs.
Then kept for a while, in what arc
called "sweat boxes," and then packed
in boxes as we receive I hem. No .sugar
used, as many suppose. Simply the
ilritd JliiM-nt iniw.
Hero too, fire churches, school hous
es and good society. Desirable laud
heie, like all other portions of the slate
I have visited, Is what wo would call
high price. Lauds "under the ditch"
that is irrigable range from sTf to
200 per acre--raw, unimproved lands.
Hero the conditions however, sire .some
what different from other localities.
Kach acre of hind takes with it a water
share, entitling the holder to stockhold
er Interests. While these prices for
land seem high, facts show more money
reillized from an acre of ground, than
anywhere else of which I have Knowl
edge The rule iu California, is huge
farms- largo land-holders. The moro
shrewd, however, are seeing tho benelit
of cutting up into small farms, or
tracts. Where this ! practiced, there is
more prosperity and advancement.
At this place J met ft .lumber of old

From here I go up into the Sacra

mining on adjacent farming lands. Dr.

acres in wheat alone. (Sen. Hid well, fit

versified farm. Of these I may write
after seeing them.
