Lewis and Co-' Workers on Vast Estate  A VERY UNIQUE COMMUNITY  TRENCHES DUG AT U. S. CAMPS IN MEXICO  Partial Account of What We Saw j and Heard on Trip to Be Given j in Two or More Daily Installments; the Trip Up  M By Geo. iM. Dlair) Those of our people who liave made the trip by aiito iroiii Los Angeles to San FranciKi o \ la the coast route, will have noticed that at a point between San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles, a new community is springing up. The name Atascadero at each end of a yast acreage fronting ten miles of the new .state highway through that locality, may. mean much or little to the individual, according to his or her ac-(luaintanceship with the vast project that is being carried out there.  To those who have never made the trip, the following facts relative to the outing which the editor and wife took with other members of the Southern California Editorial association, will prove of interest, and in the future when one of you makes the trii) between the Angel City and San I'^rancisco, you will liave more of an appreciation for i what you see along the state highway between the points above named.  The Excursion A special trainload of editors and their families boarded a Pullman special on the Southern Pacific for the trip to Ata.scadero which was via the coast route. On arriving at Santa Barbara a stop of some three hbufs was made for an-^u to—trip-about that charming city, followed by a big barbacue at Varonica springs. The chamber of commerce of the Qhannel city did themselves proud in the entertainment during our short stay there and to n)any of us wlio have never "tasted" of the beauties of that charming city, the resulting sight-seeing trip wa.--- a revelation. -  \V. E. Ellis, formerly identified with the printing interests of Toro-na was among the chamber of commerce members at the station and "Ed" acted as our per.-onal conductor. The "engineer" of ouj- own p^vate little party was the chauffeur of W. T. Black who manufactured something or" other in the East, amassed a fortune and came to California to enjoy his millions. The "engine" itseff, a big 110 h. p. Lozier completed the triangle of our ride, the bases of which may be termed information, safety and comlort respectively.  Leaving Santa Barl?ara at three o'clock the delightful ride up the coast'dwas continued. At Lompoc Junction, the train was halted to permit the boarding of a committee «£ flower girlB. Fragrant bouquets «f commercial sweet peas were dis-tribnted to members of tbe party tegetlier with generous package« of seeds of tbat variety.  Shortly after eight o^clock we ar-ft*«d at *iH6nry" the railway «ta-tlOB nearest oar destination and de-tvained for a short ride-in autoa to OQ// especially prepared camp at  ORDINANCE NÖT tONSIOERED  MESSRS.

Here occurred the only untoward incident of the trip as far as the writer was concecrned. In the dark surrounding the little station and the hurry to get to headquarters, we picked, or rather had Iiicker for us—o Pord. Ugh I  This simple statement of fact looms to greater proportions when it is understood that a number of the roads in that country have just merely had "a supervisor's promise." ■  That short ride soured our disposition for the night. We wished ¡ we had not come. Why. oh why, did they cHiarter us way out here in 'the 1 wilderness?"  ! These were some of the thoughts in our mind as we went to bed that night in the specially prepared tent city.  Good Times Ahead  In the morning, what an awakening. The wilderness of the night before l?ad faded aw'ay. Tent city was set on a charming flat sTudied with giant oak.«; in all directions the same admirable landscapes met our view.  Meandering up toward a long low building, from whence came the odor of frying ham and sizzling bacon, we began to be more and more glad that "we were here." That first breakfast at ".-X-tascade-ro" capped the climax to our revision of things ujiward.  We were " most glad we were | there." j  Al breakfast it was announced that autos would be at our disposal for a sightseeing trip. With this announcement, and -in view of the exiieriencec of the ni^ht ride, \ve cut short our meal with the consumption of only two pieces of ham, three scrambl.ed"eggs, a generous slice of bacon, three biscuits, a stack of hot cakes and a cup of coffee. There were a number of other nice things on the table, but as we were in a hurry to give the waiting automobiles the once over we hurried out of the dining room.  We sure struck it rich in the selection of the front seat of a big 7-passenger Pierce Arrow, The uncertainties of a comfortable ride were eliminated, and we climbed to the "first row front«» beside the driver.  Nearly forty; feöes were traversed that morning.

So with a town. Several years ago Henry Ford recogiiizocl Detroit's need for money. ! He was particularly concenied that iliere should be no halt in ' the construction of schools. He complete confidence in the future of the city and the value cf tlie city's securities." This was the plain announcement made by the Comptroliev of Detroit, in connection with the buying of Sl.000.000 in city bonds by the automobile manufacturer. TJiis act solved Detroit's financial problem at one stroke. It paid up the indebtedness on school construction and enabled tlie city to can-y forward its work.  Ford invested because Detroit had a good chara.ctir. It paid its debts. It used its money for education and improvements that count.  E. C. Hargood" in an article in the National Municipal Review, recently spoke of the desire of the late Tom L. Johnson that Cleveland be "a city set on a hill."  To have a city on a hill it is nevessary first to have citizens with the ioya:lty"aff  municipality with money and service, and above all. willingness to co-operate.  The duty of every citizen is to make his city worthy of him, and to accomplish this he in turn must be worthy of his city.  Ford believed in his city because it was worthy. It was worthy because its citigenship was composed, of wortliy men.  li w ,is coll- i '.'rrd li.'st to : idet I'aeU  'he iirdin'aiiec and let leatiers -tand  I liel-e I )m'\ w fre.
