Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a
strong drink. As now made,
there is not a drop of alcohol
in it. It is a non-alcoholic tonic
and alterative. Ask your own
doctor about your taking this
medicine for thin, impure

ships which came from the Atlantic
around the Horn to the Pacific coast,
ami, perhaps, would lilce a description
of their reception at San Pedro harbor.
We had known for Home days that
they expected to be there April IS at '.i
p. m. As it is considered a great event
in the history of Southern California
there was liable to be a big crowd
there so wo drove down early, reaching
there at noon. We found a good place
near the edge of the bluff overlooking
the harbor. Within ten minutes after
we drove in there the place was filled
in with automobiles. The harbor was
on one side of us and the road on the
other, so they could onlv get in to btay
behind where we were, ho did not ob
struct our view. It is estimated that
100,000 people went in there that day
on the four car lines that run into San
Pedro. Resides, there were 5,000 auto
mobiles and other vehicles of all de
scriptions. For three miles out from
tlio city the ground was covered with
carriages and people on foot. As the
ground rises from one bluff to another
nearly all could get a view of the bay.
About 2 p. m. we caught sight of the
fleet thoy looked like large birds with
white wings. The enthusiasm was im
mensebells ringing, whistles blow
ing ahd all sorts of noises made to ex
press the delight of the multitude
which lastu(l about ten minutes, then
commenced again as the ships were
coming into the harbor. As they came
in it was a grand sight. I have seen
merchant ships and other smaller craft
on the Atlantic coast, also warships on
this coast, but I never saw any bo
beautiful as these are. The hulls are
as white as snow. The masts and the
rigging above are light yellow. It is
said they are painted in that style for
visiting, but before they go into a bat
tle they are changed to the color of
the ocean. The llagship Connecticut
came as near the bhore as possible, the
others strung out in a straight line

1,000 feet apart and cast anchor. As
it became dark they were lighted up
and many thought that was all the
illumination they were to have and
started for home. Hut others said
they had been promised more than
that and thev would stay until 8
o'clock and see. And they were well
repaid for waiting, for at that hour
exactly the illumination came. At the
same instant as by a flash every ship
became a mass of light outlined against
the dark sky. They looked as you
might imagine phantom ships would
look. There was no screeching then;
then the crowd seemed awed. Onl.
one girl was heard to say, "How
pretty." Then in a few minutes the
the searchlights began to play, light
ing up one group after another all
along the shore, the piers and the
small boats in the harbor. It was a
scene which all who saw It will recall
with pleasure, but indescribable. Then
came the rush for home. San Pedro is
nearly surrounded by water and then
is but one wagon road leading out ol
it so the vehicles all had to go one
