PROFS 206 Thitd St. (Kftti Blocl^), San.Bernardiao,.Calif.' The season of the year is. now ,at hand when the first frosty and chilly evenings remind the resident of the Middle and Eastern States and the great West too for that matter," that the long season of cold and desolatiott is c-bout to descend upon the country and wrap it in snow and ice foi half the year: The mucli talked of joys of winter, its braci^ and invigoratíng e;ffect on the system and' the jpleaaure of spending the long evenings about the family fireside look well frdm a distance, but when the long cheerless season closes in to stay until spring, when the mercury drops to xero and ninges from that to thirty below, and the frost king nips finora and.toeè and whitens noses and ^ars incautiously exposed, the glamour with which the season ie surrounded during the sultry days of August fades from t^he view and the harsh and actual rfealities of the situation are unpleasant! prominent. Childhood and yout! with the buoyant spirits of their vigorous young existence fiiid matiy pleasures no doubt, in the winter season, but the elder portion of the community in whose veins the life blood courses slowly, are ill able to endure the severity of an old fashioned winter. Those who are able to indulge themselves in a winter vacation look with longing tó warmer climes where they can pass the dreary months of cold weatner and l^fore winter has fairly got a sure hold in the land they flee with the feathered tribes to the sanny lands where perennial summer holds undisputed sway. Many come for pleasure, and many come whoss systems cannot stand the seventies of the season and here gain strength and health. If you have been here you need no eulogy of the country from an unknown pen to bring you here again. If your feet have never trod the sands of this Golden State, if you have never listened to the sounds of music wafted on the breath of night laden with the perfume of a thousand flowers, while Luna floods the earth with her liquid beams, transforming the landscape and throwing a halo of enchantment over the most common place objects," and shrouding them with romantic interest, if you have never wandered among groves of oranges and amid bowers of roses and clematis Where the happy blending of the most beaujLiful in nature and in art .combine "to steep the senses in a dream of fairy land, then you know naught of the d^ lights of a California winter; , The tales of Southern Cáliforpia strike the practical mind like glittering romances of an oriental tale. The glowing eulogies of this land of flowers are too frequently attributed to the warm imagination of a ale reared in this semi-tropic , when the grandest enthusiasts are thofe who burst upon the splendors of our perfect winters fresh from the cold and desolation that reigns beyond the Rockies. The novelty of retiring to rest in the snows on the eastern slope of the mountains, and awakening on this side among birds ' and flowers and the freshness of spring is too much for the most stolid to resist with indifference. But every traveler thinks it imperative on hip part to recount his first impressions of California and the; public has become familiar with such experiences. The portals once passed, however, and the pleasure, of. the moment is not always to be broken in upon with common place analysis of causes and effects, or descriptions of the country and climate which are but lame at best. It is sufficient that the days are all perfect, the skies are always òf cer-ulian hue, the flowers ever blooming, the air ever wafting delicate odors to the nostrils and the nights spent in dreamless arid refreshing slumbei. The climate, which is undeniably the great attraction to tourists, is much the same throughout the three southern counties, a little more moist on the coast and dryer as t% interior valleys and elevated mesas are approached, while a genuine taste of winter can be enjoyed by the man who longs for the frosty air of his native heath by ^iscending any of the numerous mountains. The greatest diversity of tastes can be satisfied within tho short range pf a day's journey and the exploring tourist will discover many a charming nook, enphanted valley , and picturesque bit of scenery while nosing about the country. There is probably no more interesting and charming valley in all Southern California than ' the. comparatively ''unknown, unhoñored and uns(|ng" canyon of the Tem-escal. Éntiiqring at the Southern end you pass'between ancient and weatner beaten mountains clothed to their rounded summits wilh tireeá and underbmsfa: Ja'ihe narrow lying bétnoBCìa ■ them is a stting ùf small. lakes üuA ùd strung Hire diamonds along » littiff modest stj-eam which finally dis-charges its self into the pretty sheet of water set in an emerald rim of rushes and^ocally knov^n as Lee Lake, the overflow from which feeds the Temescal creek. Proceeding down tho canyon^'maiij lateral gorges run back into the mountain ranges, among which weeks might be pleasantly and profitably, spent exploring their rocky fastness, or watching for a glimpse of . an occasional deer. The best known and by far the most picturesque of these is the Cold W ater CanyoW; A clear sparkling brook, fnd by living springs faï up in .the mountains, rushes with tj&e characteristic impetuosity of a mountain stream down the canyon and-in its crystal waters the brook trout multiply in defiance of the anglers who know and seek them in their native haunts. The beauties of the cah-yon baffle our descriptive powers and we advise you, if possible, to explore its recesses, ■ drink its pure, waters and if you enjoy sporting with gun and rod, make a pilgrimage to Cold AVator Canyon and revel in a pcrfoct field for both. Near the mouth of the Canyon bubble up several sulphur ^rings both Warih and cold, for years noted for their medicinal properties. Here bath houses have beeti built and many visit the springs to drink the waters and take hot sulphur baths. The place will no doubt soon become a fashionable and popular resort, a plan of building a fine hotel and bath houses and laying out a large park being under advisement. Belonging to the property is a grove of venerable live oaks, that would bo a-credit to a nobleman's park, and the road turns and winds among them, now crossing a little rill and again getting lost among the giant triinks with spreading crowns of glistening foliage until it emerges farther down the valley. If you have followed the course laid oùt the afternoon will now be fast mer^ng into evening and the sun will have been long shut out of the valley by the lofty mountains that border it on the west. Twilight comes quickly oh and the purple shadows gather among the canyon traversed ridges on either ^and. The shadows grow deeper among the mountains, and a lingering ray of sunshine lights up some lofty peak in the distance as you turn your face towards the hotel, tired but" conscious of a day or rare pleasure am«^ nature's handiwork, j^^^irfiort drive over a hard i-iflflrwhich the foot falls of the horses ring oiut as clearly as if traveling a cement pavement, and a pretty town built upon a vast' plain, gentling sloping to the north, breaks upon the view. Less than a year ago, nothing broke the Contour jof the mesa save an occasional patch of cactus. The change is hardly credible, but in this land of wonders the senses become dulled. We question not, but accept the facts as they are ; so leaving our team at tlie livery barn, wo naturally seek the hospitality of the jolly landlord of thp handsome Hotel Tcmoscal. Mr. 0. A. Smith is thè presiding genius of this model establishment and is ably seconded by his manager, Col. J. H. Fawcett and a corps of trained 'Assistants. The hotel may surely be a subject of pride on the part of the community and it is a structure no city would need be ashamed of. Of gôthic architecture, three stones in height, it stands alone in the^center of the town having an entire block to itself. The grounds are being laid off in a tasteful manner with serpentine walks and drive wayg and give the fine structure a noble setting. Within, the hotel has the best of appointments. The furniture is elegant and attractive, the table groans with all the luxuries of the season, and the wants of the guests are proniptly met and thoughtfully anticipated. The town itself IS known as the Circle City of the Citrus Belt, being encircled by a Grand Boulevard three miles in length. A contract has been let for the planting of this beautiful drive way with palms and pepper trees and when completed will be something at once attractive and unique. The growth of. the place might well be called phe-nominal were it hot tl^at it has the finest natural site in the state, and is located in the heart of 10,000 acres of the very choicest orange land. Numerous brick and frame buildings have been put up, both residences and business houses and more are being contracted for now. A $25,000 bank block is . nearing cbmpleticn, several other brick blocks are finished and òthers are now building. Tasty dwellings are located on different parts of the town site and several wealthy men propose building fine i^denoes at once. .It would take too long to tell, all about tho town, its improv-ménts and its projects, but we òaa-not omit mention of the really fine passenger depot erected by the Santa Fe road at a cost oí I6,00p, Bind we will just mention that tw(r fine ledges of coal are being developed, besides limestone, fire and pottery ':cl8y, mineral paint, gypsum,, etc., and negotiations, aré pending for the crection of a paper mill to employ 500 men, Tho Pomona, South Riverside & Elsinore Railway have surveyed a lin^. and will soon be at work grading. Space forbids further remarks but we can truthfully say that for the tourist, the business man, the orchardist, the invalid or the pleasure seeker, no place offers moré solid attractions than South Rivet-eide. Overheard on the Bialto« New York aun.l " ' "I say that the exact number is 7,280,411," he declared in a loud tone of voice. "And I say." retorted the other' with equal emphasis, "that you aw wrong by ten, and I'll bet the beer on it." , V "What are those actors disputing about?" inquired a paaser-^ of a policeman. "Tho number of railroad ties between Pittsburgh and, New York," exclaimed tlie oflicer, California as a Producer. Californiana are so accustomed to hearing the striking figures or the value of her leading products that they sometimes forget^ how infinite is the variety òf her resources; It is a glowing fact, however, that no country in the world can parallel Uiéni. We occupy the first position as producer; our \yheat crop has exceeded that of any other State in the Union ; the product of oar barley fields aggregates millions of bushels annually; we raise the best hops and plenty of them ; honoy is produced by the hundreds of tons in sections of the State ; our olive oil is beginning to ■ attract the attentions of Italians and is exciting their apprehension ; we grow the finest almonds and English walnuts in largo quantities; our oranges are shipped to other States bj' the train load; our lemons'are growing in favor; our deciduous fruits, such as peaches,, pears, plums, apricots, nectarines and apples, are seen on the.fruit stands-of every large town of the East ; our canned goods are on the shelves of every grocery store in the Union' ; our raisins are gradually driving out tiie foreign article ; our wines .are growing in excell-. enee and. flavor ; at an «ftf^^y we will be the, only protlradeir of genuine grape brandy in the world ; millions of pounds of vegetables of all kinds go forward to the East every séason, and even Boston is beiiomin^ dependent upon Us for the choicest quality of beans useful for baking.

A NEW ENGLANDEU'S OriNtON Of THE • PRODUCTS or CAtli'OUNIA. San Frivncisco Bxiiniiner.l "What report do you intend carrying back East of the productions of tho soil of California?" asked aq Examiner reporter of a member of a small party of New En.gland®gentlemen stopping at the Palacoj and who', have traveled extensively throughout the State. "Marvelous, marvelous," said he. "Why on one small farm in Fresno county we found 2400 acres iii wheat, which had yielded 700 tons, 300 of which was harvested and hauled fifteen miles to market inside of two weeks." "There was , one harvester that took twenty-four horses and three men to operate it—one man to drive the horses, one to tie tho sacks, and the third to oil the machinery. This one machine left 350 sacks, of wheat on the .field each day;" " - ^'Tlie fruit yield is equally mai?-velousT^One small farnii of twenty-five acres had nine, in grapes, and yielded 177 tons, wMeh^veraged i|>17.50 per ton. Ten acres were^in apricots, and were sold on the ground for $2,000. One farm of seventy acres was in prunes, most of the trees being only 5 years old, and the crop ¿old for $12W, and another farm seen was of, eighty acres in prunes, .the crop of which sold for 120,000 spot cash. We examined several olive oroharda,.the fruit .of which we pronounced equal to any imported from Italy or Spain.^' "The Eastern States are beginning to u^ California olives, botli as fruit and the oil, wHiob is pr«i-ferned by iaariy to butter." "What was your opinion of California before your visit?" icp» asked. , ■ "We had no idea- that the marJcabId productiveness included almost the entire arable portion if the State, having thought it coo'i^ fined to a few isolated s^ctioos 'e/t' counties." -- / - -1. -aS^feL.- ;
