Since letter dated december i6th, i have seen so Many interesting things in this Semi topical climate that to give your readers even a faint idea of them would be quite . Still 1 will try to recount some bits of the life As t see it. First we Seal Harb orites Are enjoying this Beautiful Redlands to our hearts Content. It is just Beautiful and the sights to be seen Are a Delig Vit to the Eye As Well As a help to the body. Miss Eva e. Clement of Seal Harbor joined us on sunday evening at 8 o clock she came on the California limited in Lour Days from Portland ., which makes us think we Are not so far away but this 3.500 Miles is a weary ride at Best and we were All glad to rest a few Days after arrival. On december 16, we visited the famous Ostrich farm at South Pasadena where Are one Hundred and Twenty five huge Birds and they Are a very interesting study. We were Shoa a where they Hatch their Young also the process of feeding and the Young. They Are a Peculiar bid in their habits. When at the age of eighteen months the males choose their mates and if either Dies the survivor never mate again. They Lay fifteen eggs at a litter but one pair has gone Over to or. Bryan s Side and lays sixteen eggs so this pair is named sixteen to one or or. And mrs. Bryan. On this farm is said to be the Only solar motor in the world. It is a Hugh concave disk set slanting towards the Sun and by attracting its rays creates All the Power necessary to do the pumping for the farm. On wednesday we visited miss Brewer formerly of hulls Cove and had a most visit. We talked of it. Desert Island past and present of old friends and new and of California As Well. One Day i made a trip to bunkers Hill in los Angeles. In the Middle of that City is a Hill about one Hundred feet above the town and then a Tower of another Hundred feet whose top is reached by Long flights of Steps. At the top is a Cage capable of holding four persons. The View is one of the grandest the Eye Ever rested upon. The whole of thug hustling City lies beneath you and one gets a Fixie Bird s Eye View of it. Its Church Spires rising skyward huge hotels business blocks wide streets with Street cars at every Corner and every turn As Well As in All streets. In fact at first there appear so Many one is bewildered to know which to take or which Way to go to keep Clear of them. This elevated Tower is called the Quot Angel s Llight Quot and five cents Are Well spent for the View from the top n . December 24, Vve took a Long wished for trip to Santa c iii Etui Island via Salt Lake route from los angles to san Pedro and to the Island by the staunch and commodious Steamer Iler Mosa. It was an Ideal California Day not a Ilreath stirring the surface of the giant Pacific which is As Blue As the sky above it. There were about seventy five passengers on this trip and they represented a Large proportion of the Middle states As Well As some Eastern states. The course from san Pedro is South one Quarter East and Distant Twenty seven Miles. After a sail of two and one half hours we Drew into the pier at Avalon and the usual Bustle of a Steamboat landed was enacted a hotel men seeking your patronage proprietors of Glass Bottom boats crying the sights to be seen from their new fashioned crafts restaurant keepers passing you their cards Lor a Chance to sell you a dinner Etc. W e were fortunate in accepting the hospitality of mine Host f. A. Mance of the Jay \ new and right glad we were to find ourselves in a Nice Juiet Well kept hotel. The rooms were All one could wish and gave us a splendid View of the Beach and Bay. Here were Small boats Riding at moorings naptha launches All ready to go out with parties and last but not least the Glass Bottom boats which Are a revelation that not Many Are permitted to see unless they visit Avalon. By their use the wonders of the deep Are revealed to your astonished gaze. After dinner at 2.30 p. M. We helped make up a party of fourteen for a trip to Seal and Church rocks which lie around the South and East sides of the Island. On the Way we had a Chance to look Down through the Glass Bottom and see fish of almost All kinds the splendid Gold fish in its native element the spotted Perch Black Bass Rock Bass runners smelts Sheepshead a and any amount of them. We could see Bottom in sixty feet of water and the kelp reaches to the top in this depth. There is sort of a mos called the Mermaid s Vail and Many More kinds of which i did not learn the name. In Good time we reached Seal rocks where hundreds of seals were sunning themselves. What big Fellows they were and How lazily they rolled theme elves into the water As we came near. As no one is allowed to shoot them they Are very tame. Having seen this Side show and the afternoon being nearly spent we returned to the Little Bay for the night there were gulls on the Beach to Welcome us. These Birds Are also very tame coming close and lighting at our feet. All kinds of sea Birds Are equally tame. Two seals also came in to make our acquaintance. In the evening we went to a service in the Church where Santa Claus came and gave All the children a present. I imagined we were Back at Seal Harbort was so really like our own Christnia Stree. On Christmas we went out again in the same boat on the North Side of the Island to Moonstone Beach where we got some very Nice specimens and returned to the Landing in time to see the Steamer make her Landing with a merry crowd from san Pedro. We got a few souvenirs of the Island in the shape of the celebrated abalone shells both polished and in the rough and pre pared to make our return trip to Angeles with Many regrets that our stay has been so Short. If anyone going to Southern California to misses visiting Catalina he misses one of the Best of All the places and if he does go he should not forget to Stop at the Bay View. On december 30, we bid Good Bye to los Angeles Aud came to Redlands a Beautiful City in the san Barnardino Valley. Here Are 5000 acres of oranges All in the beat possible shape and we Are situated right in the midst of them. The oranges grow to perfection and i obtained some huge specimens today. I went to ride with or. C. C. Goodale to his ranch up near the Foothills six Miles out. One gets a grand View of this glorious Valley whose acres of oranges Lemons and Olive Trees interspersed with the Date and other Palms and the Ever present Pepper tree Are spread out before your astonished gaze. It is Beautiful in the extreme and 1 shall believe All stories after this that 1 read or hear about Redlands being the Garden spot of this Valley. The people Are. Very hospitable and invite you to their Homes to the churches and make you feel at Home generally. What Beautiful Days with the thermometer registering 74? to 80� in the Shade in the daytime and at night falling to about is and such nights for sleeping. We do a Good Deal of it. Sunday Over in bar Nardino there was a fearful Sand storm but at Redlands How different just wind enough to make it Cool and Nice. I Wil mention another fruit that grows Here almost to perfection and that is the Grapefruit. It is a pretty sight to see it hanging on the Trees so full and round but it is not so profitable As the Orange and therefore not cultivated to any great extent. I wonder if any Reader of the Rix okd Ever tasted of the much extolled Olive As it conies from the tree in All its freshness it is More bitter than the Gall of bitterness boiled Down. To make it what we get in the Little kes and bottles that we buy at the stores it has to he soaked in Strong Lye to Taki out the bitter then in water to take out the Lye then iti brine to cure it. 1 Don t think it is fit to eat but everyone to his taste. The water Here is pure Mountain water brought from the Hills in Humes and pipes and distributed to All parts of the City both for irrigating and use. The Cost of living is about the same As at the East and the vegetables Are the Best of their kind being brought from the ranches every Day. Wood is High hut we have to use Only enough to Cook with. What big Sweet potatoes As Well As our common potatoes grow Here it is useless to say for you would not Clieve so i forbear and Reserve for a future letter other of this wonderful coun try. A Quot.
