You would not be , TAKEN Ï.N; , : oh, noi What was there here, indeed! Nothing but a barren mesa with no prospect of anything ever beii)g made from it better than an indifferent sheep pasture. Look at that sheep pasture now and what do you see? / A YOUNG CITY, advancing with giant strides" from a state of chaos, to a busy, thriving, prosperous home ^Or thousartdsi' The "i}em of thé Citrus "Beiti" is thè flourishing young colony of South Riveuside! We have never been called upon before to chronical a growth so rapid and so substantial withal^ as that made by our beautiful young city. At the age of six mohths, this progressive metropolis in embryo, has put over $100,000 into improvements. A new brick J>lock is now building at a cost of $25,000 and others are projected. Plans are drawn up for several more fine residences, to cost from $4,000 to $10,000 each and work wilf be commenced upon them as soon as practicable. The Railroad is now completed and trains are regularly, running. /Die Southern Pacilic. company has made a survey through the tract, and will soon begin active operations. The Pomona, South Riverside and Elsin-ore railroad is just completing a survey and graders will commence work within a few weeks. Negotiations are now pending for the erection 0^ a large hotel on the mountains South of town, to cost $150,000 which will be connected with the depot by AN ELEOTEIC RAILROAD running the full length of Main-Street. This road will be over four miles in length and will be; built in a short time. A HANDSOME HOTEL not excelled by any in Southern California, has befift completed at a c'òst of $40,000, .and it has been furnished throughout at a cost of thousands more. Col.. J. ' ; Fawcett who is well known to the public as an experienced hotel man, has been en'gaj^èd ' as mánager by landlord O'. A. Smith. The Hotel Temescal is ¡centrally loQflted, occupying an entire'block which has been converted into a park, with winding walks and velvety lawns, where sparkling fountains, play and ornamental shrubs and choice exotics flourish. Yoo Pool away your time and money attempt-iiig to build up a city where it is the evident design of nature that ■no city shall exist, when you might locate in South Riverside and find one already built, and on, the finest 3ite?tbat"i|fc «oulà enter the heart, of man to désire. Here are churches, schools, bankp, hotels and all those adjuncts of' modern cjyiìizatioh, which it is popularly supposed, can riot be had without years of toil mid patience. , . > , , / The Company-have sold in. the iast six montha/' OVER $600,000 worth of real estale, and ^huch of this has changed hands three and four times since at greatly advanced prices înotwthstànding; which, the price's at which the . property was first put on the marícct were so low, ihat it ca^i Étill be bought' at reasonable figures,^^a there is big xiQiOney to 1)6 made in towftT lots or acreage property yet. What íé ■ THE SHOW FOR WATER ■ill South lUversile? -JÇhie ^ig'nat urally one of the first qxiestions thiit is propounded in the case of a new colony. Water in this country is King. It possesses a power little short of that which tradition tells us was conferred upon King Midas by which everything he tpuched was turned to gold. Land absolutely Worthless without it, sells readily at $200 to $500 per acre wit4 plenty of water. Rivai. istbrests have^ found it convenient to spread the report that we should suffer for lack of water. These malicious ialseliOods probably deterred some persons who could hot inv-estigate the matter for theniiselves, from, becoming property owners here. Now after months of hard work and the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dollars, 500 inches of water have been turned on, and in a short time as much, more will be added, making 1,000 inches of water flowing into town where arty one so disposed-can satigfy liimself as to its'actual existence. And this is not ail. The Company have still a large amount of water in reserve and are developing more. In fact, this colony has to-day, ONE THIRD .MORE WATER ' in sight, to the acre than any other colony in Southern California. Whether ycu wish a location, "for health, for pleasure, for profit," South Riverside is the location for you to choose. Pleasube seekers will find the object of their search in our wooded canyons, where the mountain stream courses down its rocky bed murmuring plaintively at the obstruction« in its path. Here through openings in tlie silent woods, the deer may occasionally be seen, hardly eonfioious, as yet, that man is encroaching so swiftly upon his haunts; and occasionally the tracks of a bear may be seen, or even old Ephraim himself, retreating in the distance. ■For, the invalid, ' the dry, bracing air, is just the tonic that is best calculated tO build up the system and endue it with new life. 'For.him, too, the warm SULPHUR SPRINGS will prove wonderfully beneficial, having a wide spread reputation for their remediaPproperties. They are located a few miles out of town in Cold Water Canyon, a charmingly romantic spot and long a'pop-ular resort with Riversiders.' It is reached by a beautiful drive, winding in and out among live oaks and sycamores, over hille and through dales to the springs, where bath houses are established, and whpre a week or .a day can bo pleasantly spent fishing, shooting and bathing. The investor will find here a splendid chance to inake moneystill low but the next four mOHlli^ will see an increase of at least one hundred per cent in values. Beware of procrastinating, and buy now at figures which will not be offered again. .Surprises. "I don't like surprises," once said a little girl, "I think they're nar'sy !" To tell the truth, so do most; of us, although,we feel obliged to look politely pleased when our friends pop ^ome unexpected Jack-in-the-box of an event upon us. A surprise must be of a very exceptionally delightful iiaturc to prove in thè least welcome. Especially is this true in the case of visits. ^ 'fl should not feel at liberty to visit iny own sister, without announcement of my intentions," sTvid a' lady.who was heartily welcome wherever she chose to go. "In fact, I never saw the person upon whose hòua§^hoId I should be willing to taicè of descending un expectedly Her principle is^^the one to be followed in nine cases ^Ut^f ten. It is only fair to say that the "pcQ;; piò who violate it, usually do so with-the best intentions. Believing that their-friends enjoy , their society, they jnnboently knagino that thè pleasure will be enhanced by a sudden burst of that sot!Ìal,,surÌL-shihè. . . ."I have invited friends to spend Sunday with ine," , said an overworked ^ teacher, recentlj^, "and ^^^..........■■■J■ ■ • Ì specified, in. writing ^Mr, that I would meet her at a certain train, on Saturday morning. Friday evening I was working like a Trojan over my examination papers, in order to be ready for' her, when in she burst, rosy and smiling. " 'I thought I'd come before you expected mo for a'surprise !' she said. 0 "The pleasure for which I had begun working was spoiled by the consciousness that the next week's tasks jvonld be deplorably behindhand." This is such a b^sy world that it becomes absurd to think of disposing of any but perhaps an idle person's tim'b,-without referouce to his convenience. Then, too, in the case of visits, few households are moved by hia-chinery so perfectly adjusted that it is not to be^disarrangcd by the arrival of the unexpected. "Aunt Mary came last night with.out a word of warning," said ;r good housewife, "nnd' the hoiise wa^ full of teachers from the convention. I had to put a bed in'Xhc trunk-rooni far the children." "Why will she always try to surprise us?" groaned her sister. "The last time she came to niy house, Aunt Sophy was there,' and as they 'don't speak' we sat and walked, on pins all the time." If we are sufliciently beloved to anticipate a hearty welcome from our friends, let us not bo niggardly, but, ill return, give them the prolonged pleasure pf c.\-pecting your presence.^—Youth's Companion. :-^- ft- —----^-- The Iiocal Newspap^., The late Judge DaViil Davk, of Illinois, whoso judgment on important problems was seldom questioned, gave his views regarding the valué of a local newspaper as follows: "Each year evory local paper gives from $100 to $51)00 in free lines for the benefit of eoiii-munity in which it is located. No other agency can or will do thiB. The. local editor,, in prop.ortion ,to his 'inearis, does rntrc^ípr his town than anyiothor.teh ineri, and. in all fixirhesá,- mañ'-to man, he ought to be supported, not because you happen to Hke hiuior admire his writings,'but because a local paper is the best investment a community can make. It may not bo brilliant or crowned with great thoughts, but financially it is more of a benefit to a^community than a .teacher or a preacher. Understand us now, we do not mean morally or intellectually, but financially, and yet on the moral question you will , find the majority of the local papers on the right side of the question. Today the editors of the local papers do the most work for the least money of any men on earth." Sub-^ scribe for your local paper,, not as ii charity, but as an investment." Did Not Rob Him. lightly." , . The Highwayman laughed good-humoredly, and declared himself ready to comply with this reasonable, request. • So Thomas with evident simplicity, took off one sieve and held.it up for the robber to fire at, which he did, completely off his'guard by the other's apparent innocence. But the instant he had fired, Thomas's demeanor cliailiged. In tlie twinkling of an eye, now that his assailant was for the moment disarmed, Thomas had his own pistol pointed at the astonished highwayman, who had little expected this turn of affairs. "Now, mac mon," said Thomas, with a different ring in his voice, "put the goold back whence ye tuk it." Tho discomfited highwayman, seeing certain death in the resolute-eye gleaming out at him from beneath the bushy shock of red hair, hastily complied, and then would have edged away. ■ "Dinna ye try to escape me nion," cried" the now aroused Thomas, "or 'twill be the waur for ye. \yalk yo there before my horse, an we'll continue our journey." The brave Scotchman took his prisoner to the next town and delivered him .over to the proper authorities.—^Youth's Companion. Starting in . Line. Lord N-^^^——was at one time travelling through a portion of England infested by higln^aymen. He deemed it better to trust his money and valuables during this part of his journey with his-servant Thomas, a faithful Scotchman', than to take them with him in his carriage ; and his confidence was well iilaced as the sequel will show. Thomas was on horseback, several miles in the roar of his master's carriàgo, with his saddle-bags well laden with gold. As ho was cantering along through a stretch of wood ho was suddenly accosted by a Tobber who, pistol in hand, commanded' hinv to hand over his gold or. take the con-sequenccs. . Thomas stopped his hor^se and said, "Dinna-shoot, mae mon. Thi gold is yours. I dinna claim it onyways, for it's my master's. Ye caa take it. I'll not hinder ye. . It's in my saddle-bags." Wjth'true Scottish* calmness ho eat quiet while the robber dis-raounte4 and removed the saddlebags of gmd^,.. "I diiina ken ^at I'll tell my master," Thomas said,..2ravely ; and then as if' a bright thought had comò to him, ho addeH^ mind, putting a ball througli my coat to show my lord?

Kibby yesterday received an order from San Diego for a certain lot but" he telograplu'd back tliat a man was standing at tho head of the line for that lot and another, asking if any other lot would do.—Press, July 13. The Walter's Reply. An artist in this city, who has for years been -considered"' one- of the best portrait artists in Boston, was a few years ago . sortiewhat poorer than at preséit. Ho was accustomed to tako his'-'lunch at the little eating houso situated at that timo in the lower part of 'the old Scollay building. Beans were sold at ten cents per plate. Tho artist called for "beans." They were brought to him, but before the waiter left he observed that there were ho pickles on ihc table. In his gruff voice ho called : "Waiter! where are your pickles? For heaven's sake, what are beans without pickles?" "Nine cents, sir," replied tho waiter.—Boston Journal. It is a well known fact that the orange in this portion of California, is not subject to scale, owing to the prevalence of which , many orange groves in Los Angeles"count}'' were uprooted several years ago. It is, perhaps, not so generally known, that' scale not only docs not attack the trees here,;but , that when infested stock is brought here, the scale leaves. A ease in_po[nt is that of a well known resident who brought in sorte orange trees seme five -or six years ago, badly infested with the blac,k scale, which soon left them, and they are now perfectly healthy. . ^ Walnuts for keeping, Forsyth observes, "should bo suffered to drop of themselves, and afterwards laid in an open airy place till they are thoroughly dried; then pack, them in jars, boxes, or casks, with fine clean sand, that has been well dryed in the sun, in an oven, or before the fire, in layers of sand and walnuts alternately; eet tiiem in a dry place, but not where it is-, too hot. In this manner, I have kept thciu good till the latter end of April. Before you send them to table wipe the sand clean-off; and, if you find that they have become shrivelled, steep them in milk and water for six or eiglit hours before they are used | this will make theni plump and fine, and cause then^ to peel easily." An English writer lias the following to say about the Medlar. "The Medlar is not good till rotten ripe. It is generally gathered in the beginning of November, and placed botween two liiyors of straw, to forward its i;naturation. "Others," Marshal observes, "put medlars in a box, on a three inch layer of fresh bran, moistened well with soft warm water; then strew a layer of straw between' theiu, and cover with fruit two inches thick ; which moisten also, but not so wet as before." In a week or ten days after this operation, they will be (it for use." "Quinces." Further ou he says : "The service or sorb apple never ripens on the tree in England.^ AVhero grown, it is gathered late in autumn, in a very austero state, and laid on wheat straw to decay. It thus becomes eatable iu a month. - ' Figs.. A Sure Sign. Pittsburg Dispatch: " I do bc-lieve I'm getting old and homely," said Milliccnt. "Why," replied Maud, "I hadn't noticed that you are." "It nmst be so, for all the ■ men were too busy with their i newspapers to look up when' I got on a street ear last evening." - Reformation not Complete. ^ Salvation Army Man (to hardware merchant)—Ten. years ago, sir, I stole an ax from you and here's a dollar to pay for it. ,Merehant-r-Axes aro \vorlh> a dollar and a half. . ^ Salvation army man (returning the money to his pocket)—Dollar and a half for axes!, I can get them cheaper than that.—-Novv York Sun. pxiotect the Ears while Batu-ing.—Under ordinary conditions, the healthy ear does not need, to be protected from cold ; only during ex,tremcly cold or stormy or rainy weather ought cotton wool to be inserted, into ehildreu'a ears eepecir' ally. The same precaution must be taken in the. case of every oar predisposed to inflammation. The entraneS' Of cold fluid into any ear must always bo prevented ; and so, while bathing , or diving, tlie ear ought to bo plugged; ■' Patients with perforation of the mcihbrano .^ught to be very careful in this re-violent inflammation, may be causiiVl-hy thf ontranco of ooUl water. The Stocktoa Independent has tho following to say about . the proper meihod of curing figs : Figa . should bo picked' when the skin is fully checked, that is when it shows small white seams upon its surfacc by which time the fruit has reached its maturity. It must» be dried upon trays in the sun. Care shou|d bo taken that it, is turned over tit least once a day until tho greenish tingo entirely disappeai«, when the fruit is ready to bo taken in-doorslor packing: WMe-dry-: ing tho fruit should never be left out in the open air after five o'clock ¡n.tho evening. nor..shQuId th.ey. t).0. .v .. exposed to tho sun again until the , dow is dispersed in the morning, as tho least moisture will entirely ■fpoil their flavor and appearance, and render them unfit for use. AVoid packing wind-falls because ,they aro utterly worthless for commercial purposes and will greatly detract from the value of the whole consignment—perhaps lead to its final rejection. Before packing tho figs should be hastily dipped in clean, boiling-hot water to guard against all danger -of attack from (he worm so destructivo to the fruit; then properly packed and thorougly pressed in tin can.0, hermetically sealed and labelled. Iu all cases the fig should be left in its natural. state and sugar and * other confections discarded. These' directions should be strictly observed if one wishes to obtain a choice ' article that will command ready sale and top.priees^ in^he: fnark;et. - -Even our common black figs treat- . eel according to the above method will astonish the natives.
