A Letter From California.
m? w^if108 Angelee, Cal., May 23.
? Mr. Editor: Since my sojourn here in
thia beautiful land of southern Cali
Cornia. I have often thought of my
friends in dear old Anderson, and
wished that some of you could visit
here and view the beauties of this fair
city. Los Angeles, "City ot Angels.'?
We left Atlanta in March and turned
our back upon cold, bleak winde and
icy pelting raine, and in a journey of
three days and nights leaped "into the
lap of Spring." The transformation
one experiences, who in the winter
crosses the plains and long desert
Btretch through Texas, is expressed by
no other migration in the experience of
travelers, for the improvement of the
weather away from winds and pelting
cold rains are some of the reasons we
seek thia land or sunshine. .
There ia health in the simmering
sunlight, the sweet breath of the ever
blowing west windit, the never chang
ing climate, the indescribable shifting
hue of the mountain shadows, the
walks through orange grovoa and palm
gardens, the poppio holde of glorious
crimson and golden splendor, and roses
climbling in rambling profusion to
reach the housetops of palatial homes.
These are some ot the things why I en
joy California-but then the fruits !
Oh, the fruits of California are eo
abundant abd varied that one can en
joy these luxuries in abundance. Or
anges brought to your door and sold
nt 15c a water bucket full. Grapes,
figs, dates, plums, peaches and all
other fruits abound within your reach.
The cost of living here is about ns cheap
as in the East. Gardens bear vegeta
bles the year round and are sola at
very reasonable rates. Groceries and
offaer table commodities aboat the
samo as in Eastern cities.
The amusements among the people
of Los Angeles are many. Very many
attractions are offered for recreation
and pleasure, and any day and evening
the pleasure seekers find something to
amaso and often instruct. For sea
bathing repair ye to Long Beach,
reached by trolley or eleotrio car.
"There where breakers wash the
shore" you oan sit and pass the hours
away or take a plunge into the salty
waves. The smooth beach dipping
gent!V down to the ocean afford one of
the most delightful bathing grounds
fonnd upon the Pnoilic coast. Soft
somi tropio tide washes the shores of
Long Branch, and is a favorite resort
for Los Angeles' busy people.
Once a year in May a beautiful Span
ish festival takes place and is attended
by thousands. This festival of the
flowers rival in splendor the famous
annual Mardi Gras of New Orleans.
This year it was of unusual splendor
and gaiety, owing to tho visit of the
President of the United States. He
waa making his tour through the
The festa opened Tuesday night,
May Oth, and continued till saturday
night. The opening night was herald
ed by a grand pageant, headed by five
bando of music, playing at intervals.
The gorgeous cisplay of floats, type
fyng "different allegorical representa
tions begun at an early hour and con
tinned till late at night.
Spanish memories of oriental splen
dor, brought ont to the fullest extent,
and homage done the President in
dashing style and wonderful display.
Tremendous crowds, \ reflecting the
spirit bf Spanish grandeur, compared
with the life of tho rolicking, frolicing
weat. This characterizes the advent of
"Green Flora" Goddess of Flowers.
The electrical parade in floats of
nocturnal brilliancy ushered in the
grand pageant in a desert vast, peace
ful barren, burning under the raye of a
scorching ann. All vestige of life
seemed forgotten in that pall of heat
and ineandeatant light:
The deaert passed by. Then came
irrigation, the float wound ita way
through the streets, to show what wa
ter means to the arid weat* Then
follows floate of individual flowers.
"The pond lily" came and opened ita
petals and languished under a green
gauze. Then came the beautiful wild
cally lillies, so abundant in southern
California; restfully they lay, bathed
in ivory light. The chrysanthemums,
symbolizing J ap??ese ingenuity. Then
tho "bridal wreath" served its term.
A young maiden surrounded by hei
bridesmaids whose youth and beauty
too subtle to last. For the moment,
possessed the night, the bride, beneath
a canopy, etood elad . in white, with
necklace of pearls upon her throat, s
diamond crown upon her head, ah ale

Electricity. The bold suitor had led
her to the altar, and the bridesmaids,
the Burban cities, drawn to her by thc
tie of electricity. LOB Angeles oar
pose aa the bride of the coming powei
of electricity, for ten millions are be
ing spent in developing electrical
power. , ... ,
The President was greeted with loud
and long applause, aa his flower be
decked landeau, drove along amid thit
grand display. The "Feiste" colon
red, orange and green adorned the pub
lic buildings and in many patriotic
homes. Thus has passed one of thc
grandest displays of a public spirited
and patriotic, generous people.
