TOURING IN THE
LAND OF SUNSHINE
AUTO ENTHUSIASTS JUNKET TO

The natural advantages offered to
the automobile tourist in Southern
' California has resulted In establishing
out country motoring us a recreation
of recognized "standing." The rapidity
with which the automobile has come in
to general use In the southern portion of
the state has been phenomenal. The
aggregate value of the machines now
In Log Angeles and Pasadena run well
towards millions of dollars. Nothing
seems too expensive for the wallet of
the Southern California enthusiast.

vehicle now receives a ready sale and

fiddle to any city In the country when
It comes to disposing of their choicest
offerings In proportion to population

The roads of Southern California are
now. In Ideal condition for the touring
automobile and the possessors of the

to the utmost along the country lanes
and bypaths of the southern portion
of the state.

| The majority of Los Angeles touring

take the well known route by Caln
basas to Canejo and through Oxnard
to Ventura. An agreeable drive along
the coast takes one through Summer
land, Carpentaria and Monteclto to
Santa .Barbara. Returning from Santa
Barbara the Inland route Is more popu
lar with the motorists than the spin
along the coast. While materially more
difficult the scenery is more enjoyable
to those who admire the rugged beauty
of the mountains.
; For the man with the roundabout
there Is practically no end of pleasing
side trips to nearby towns and points
of general interest associated with the
development of Southern California.
Santa Ana, Pomona, Westminster and

describing a trip to the Santa Barbara
mission and return and evidently be
lieves that Southern California "leaves
little to.be desired to the. man with a
yearning for touring. In describing his
Santa Barbara Junket Mr. Prescott
says: • '.
T"As a visitor to this fairyland of
Southern California or, as; lt might be
better called, the land of the 'Sunn;'
South,' I cannot help but add my little
quota to the already long list of encon
iums that are so profusely and so de
servedly showered upon your lovely
country by visitors- from my ' own
country across the big pond. To my
way of thinking, no better opportuni
ties are offered to the traveler than
to tour Los Angeles and the surround
ing districts by automobile. While
seated in the hotel on Sunday last eat
ing my breakfast a fellow guest kindly
offered to show me the sights by auto
mobile or as he put it 'Say, Mr. John
nie Bull, if you have nothing very ex
citing to do today I would, like to give
you some Idea why" we Americans of
the west call our little part of the
globe God's own country.' As I did not
have 'anything very exciting' on the
tapis, I Immediately clinched the ar
rangement and having robed myself
as quickly as possible I waded In to
enjoy what I correctly Imagined to be
a very pleasant outing.
"Mounted in a very ilne auto, which
I am' afraid was driven very much In
excess of the regulation speed, we
bubbled In the direction of Arcadja
and were soon in the precincts of
'Lucky' Baldwin's ranch, which is un
doubtedly one of the finest sights of
iti kind that can be possibly witnessed
In any part of the globe. Of nothing
does It so much remind me of as one
of those- wonderful stations that are
dotted along the banks of the Slurry
river In Australia, where is found some
of the finest pasture lands Imaginable.
The typical American owner was right
ly proud of his estate and was the
soul of hospitality, showing us every
point of vantage and trotting out for
our admiration his wonderful string of
thoroughbreds. As our tour was to be
a fairly lengthy one, we were not per
mitted to dwell too long In any one
spot, 00 with mild misgivings we again
sallied forth; this time our route lying
in the direction of San Gabriel; the pic

glancing over the old masterpieces that
adorn the walla, one's mind must
necessarily conjure up all the hnrrl-
Bhips undergone by these God-fearing
pioneers of the mother church. Stand-
Ing round the roughly beaten copper
fount, the numerous scenes of christen
ings of the early Indian children was
realistically conjured up with strik

California church history, we emerged
Into the' glorious sunshine of the pres
ent day and mounting our machine set
out across country to view the spacious
homes that are profusely dotted around
Hollywood and Colegrove. 'Pish, pish,
pish," grunted the machine and off we
set for the ocean, hlttingSanta Monica
by a circuitous route. The placid waters
of the blue Pacific sparkled under the
warm afternoon sun and then was It

the traveler of the old world that al

swallowed up In the deepest of sweet

The Automobile club of Southern
California has taken a sensible stand
in 'its effort .to. put a. stop to the

company of Utah and three machines
have already been . arranged for
through a local agent to be put Into
the service of making daily tours of the
mining camps of that , section of the
country. The roads are very rough
and the cars will be especially con
structed not only for "the hard usage
which they will experience on the rug
ged highways of the mountains but
also at the hands of cowboys who will
be pressed into service at the wheel.
These men have never had any ex
perience at the work and the operation
of the cars will be simplified to the
greatest possible degree.
One of the routes to be traversed is
sixty miles long and in many plactj
as "rocky and precipitous as any roads
In the west. Two cars will be Identical.
They will have accomodatton for four

There was a time not so very long
ago when only the racing car stood
any chance agulnst the locomotive, but
now many of the ordinary tourjnjr
cars are able to put up a creditable
action with the king of the rails.
A recent event of the kind is related
by a northern motorist now visiting
Los Angeles and, shows what a well
loaded machine can do when driven In
competition with a locomotive. W.
Burris with three companions in a
16-horse power car raced -an excur
sion train on the California North
western railway. The motor car
reached Geyservllle just as the. train
was departing, but at the next town,
Lytton, It was on even terms. Then
ensued a neck and neck race for about
ten mites with no advantage on either
side. The railroad train having ths
most direct route gained slightly on
its adversary and when there came a
bad piece of road the motor car, had
to slacken speed and it arrived at
Santa Rosa a few minutes after the
excursionists. The distance between
the two towns is thirty-four miles.
TEAM DEFEATS SHERMAN
Dusky Maidens Succumb Before the

than at first.
