About two miles east of the
new school house is the home of
Chas. Heath, who, together with
his estimable wife and daughter
came here from New Yo-k City.
The Heaths are very enthusiastic
regarding the future of tills part
of the valley, nod have u country

and genuine hospitality challen
The buildings are all well con
structed showing they were
not put there for "a' day only."
And the quaint little bungalow is
as cool and cozy within as it is
romantic in its outward appear
ance. Just south of tho house is
a fine young orchard which is as
green and thrifty as is to be
found anywhere. Quite a scope
is devoted to tho raising b.f gar
den truck, of which they have
sold a considerable amount in the
local market this sumtnev. Lead
ing from the house is a nice ar
bor, the grape tines entwining a
round the trellis in thick mats,
and from which hang numerous
bunches of the ripening luscious
fruit. Out in the barnyard are
to be found chickens galor , vhile

Taken altogether, this is cer
tainly ono of the beautiful sec
tiois of the valley, and those
holding land in this vicinity
should certainly be proud of thoir
acquirements. Many others of
this section are making just as
valuable and attractive improve
ments as those herein mentioned.
There is so much of it, wo simply
didn't have time to visit it all.
