San Francisco is northward from
Los Angeles some five hundred
miles, and the whole distance is
one of remarkable scenic beauty.
The railroad soon emerges from
the mountaius by way of a succes
sion of considerable climbs and
several tunnels, and then for many
miles the east is shut out from
view by majestic mountains, while
the westward view is lost at last
in the blue waters of the rock-
All along the way are towns
innumerable, most of them being
small cities, but all possessing the
pretty prestige of delightful cli
mate, which makes them fruit
gardens and rose bowers, the pre
valent glory of the whole western
border of California.
Upon all the cultivable lands
can be found oranges, fruits, vege
tables, grain, nuts, English wal
nuts, and every other commodity
of orchard, garden or field known
either to tWtemperate zone or the
One place, Summerland, was
particularly attractive. Formerly
it was a seaside resort, but away
out in the ocean oil was discovered
in the water. Divers captured the
fountain, and then wells were bor
ed, and now far out into the ocean
is seen the novel sight of hundreds
of oil wells pumping day and night
their thousands of gallons of pe
troleum, which goes to sprinkle
1 the dusty California roads, furnish
power for the big oil burning en
gines that pull the Southern Pa
cific’s trains, and go into the vari
ous and varied other uses to which
petroleum can be put, among the
least of which is kerosene.
The first stop for lie-over was at
Santa Barbara, a thriving city
nesling upon the shore of the
ocean beside the famous and scenic
Santa Ynez mountains. It is a
city of several thousand popula
tion, having all modern conveni
ences in hotels, lights, trolley cars,
and the like, and is famous
throughout the country as an ideal
place of residence or for summer or
winter visiting. Its chief hotel is
the Potter, one of the most famous
hostelries of the United States.
The hotel is a large one, and its
grounds contain some thirty acres
always blooming in roses and
myriad flowers. It likewise has
its own dairy and truck farm, and
f from its own vines and cows serves
strawberries and cream every day
of the year. The same is true of
tomatoes, which do not grow so
large or of such flavor as the Geor
gia product, but we are told that
these appetizing slices fresh from
the vines are never absent from
the Potter’s popular tables.
One who had not visited other
California points would think all
the fruits and flowers and other
elements of semi-tropical beauty
'had been centered about Santa
Barbara. Its homes are terraces
oi perennial verdure, and whether
viewing the pretty city by the sea
or traversing the delightful
twenty-miles drive through the
the mountains or sporting in the
bounding billows ot the summer
surf, the visitor dwells in perpet
ual admiration of its cozy villas,
artistic terraces, palatial homes
and charming outlying orchards

class of fruit, the opportunities for

About 8 o’clock at night the
special was again boarded to awake
early next morning amid the
charming surroundings of the
famous hotel Del Monte. This is
a famous hotel amid a beautiful
natural purk, where nature and
w’ealth and artisticity have united
in a triumph of landscape garden
ing, hotel building, and park
planning. The place must be seen
to be appreciated. It is lieside

home of her parents in Carrollton.
Miss Burnett formerly lived at

happiness through life.
Rev. J. S. Askew filled his
monthly appointment at the Moth

discourse was very earnest ami

in Newnan the latter part of No

anxious to have Bro. Askew re

Mrs. W. T. Stevens had quite a
narrow escape from serious injury
Sunday afternoon. She and her
two children had started home
with her father, who had spent
the day with her, and soon after
they left her home, the mule they
were driving suddenly become
frightened at a bicycle, and whirl
ed around in the road, throwing
all the occupants out, but no one
was hurt but Mrs. Stevens. Her
elbow was knocked out of place
and arm bruised; otherwise she
was not seriously hurt. It was al
most a miracle that neither of her
children were hurt. Her lathe'
also escaped unhurt.
It is with sadness we chronicle
the death of Mr. Steve White,who
had been seriously ill of fever for
several weeks. Mr. White was
one of our cleverest and best citi

his acquaintances. In his death
the community has lost a good
neighbor, a faithful friend and a
true citizen, who was always at
his post of duty. He was about
55 years of age and a member of
the Methodist church. He leaves

October 18 is the statement an

the census bureau todny. In this
calculation, round bales are count

given in the bulletin are based on
reports made by the bureau’s
special agents in the field.
No estimate is made of the total
crop for the year, but figures arc
given out concerning crops of for

that up to this date in 1904 the
product of the gins had reuclied a
total of 0,417,894 bales, out of a
total of 18,098,279 bales for the
year. In 1908, the total produc

ginning output up to October 25
was 8,700,248; in 1902 the total
was 10,827,108, and the amount to
October 25 was 5,508,000. To
