When they open at 9 o'clock Monday morning the forty-second annual state fair will be ready for the public. The Journal has kept Its readers well Informed as to the plans for this fair.

The spectacular dramatic performance of the "Last Days of. Pompeii," which will be pepsentei each evening: at the state fair, is a representation of the most direful disaster or' all hi-story, the"death and burial of a city. ' When Vesuvius poured forth its deadly torrent ■of ■ lava upon the ancient city of Pompeii, burying it under a mass of liquid stone, and destroying with pitiless force the thousands of happy people who dwelt within the walls of the doomed place, cries of agony rent the lurid air, and all was desolation and misery. This happened eighteen centuries ago. Excavators' researches have brought be fore the world relics of the fatal city. Volumes have been written upon it, and people have come to know a great deal of the history of Pompeii.. So far as books can teach them, so far as lectures by rages HIGH LIFE IN LOS ANGELES IN SUMMER "B. OB." Tells of the Glories of the Atmosphere and of the Sea- Eternal Spring in Everlasting Summer—Hotels and Hotel Life on the Pacific. I Correspondence of The Journal. | Los Angeles, Aug. 6, 1901.—Southern j California was never, before so filled with tourists during the dull summer months. Usually at this season of the year the curio shops along the main streets put up their shutters and move Into cheaper quarters; hotel men do their house.clean ing, the theaters, are .deserted, and the townspeople live oft' each other. But the bands are still playing during the dinner hour at the hotels; the streets are crowd ed with"..shoppers,.,'and the \ newspapers twang their ' editorial \■_ harps ... to \ the tune of prosperity and -contentment. The reason for this change of conditions which is becoming more sand■),. more apparent every year is not far to seek. Easterners are slowly awakening to the fact that de lightful a3 it is all aong the Pacific coast in winter, it is really, pleasanter in sumy mer. The popular impression has been that California being so warm in winter must be comparitively hotter during the dog days, but experience proves the con trary. During the recent period of scorch ing; heat all over the country, when the | thermometer loitered along in the hun dreds, it remained In the eighties in southern California and dropped into the sixties, up north in the" vicinity of 'Frisco. There Is relatively but little variation in the temperature;. but little more than ten degrees in the twenty-four hours. | Every afternoon by four o'clock _ a sea ; breeze will, so cool the hottest day, that at bedtime — anywhere from 10 p.m. to 5 a. m. —you have'to sleep under a blanket. ! Light wraps are worn almost every night, and fidglty people look out for J a draught even in August. / Then too, on a really hot day here the local article at its worst is not compara- \ ble with the ! damp and oppressive * heat I that has made the east so uninhabitable j this summer. Owing to the lack of rain the air is not charged with moisture; the ! percentage of humidity is never, high, nor does the breeze come like a blast from a furnace.. Thunderstorms are almost as rare as angel's visits In this ever rose blooming corner of, the' country, and cy clones so unheard of that the people could not follow Lac/ Stafford's philosophical discussion on what would happen If the Irresistible force struck the immovable object. Yet in spite of the lack of rain there is no dust, for an occasional ' fog i cools the air, and lays the dust as well. But to conclude this long talk on, the I weather; the . following official table of | temperatures taken during the recent I heated term will fully substantiate as j facts the statements made above.. .

Ohio -. .' .100 | Los Angeles, Cal 83 i What to Eat. j The creature comforts of life are on a ! par with the climate. The "leading hotel ! in Los Angeles," save for the fact that the ■ markets are limited, compares favorably with any hotel in New York or Chicago, j It is well nigh impossible to get soft-shell j crabs here, because they are not hardy ! enough to stand the long journey, and die \ on the way from the Atlantic seaboard. ! Lobsters, too, are "cut" just at present, j but will be "in" again August 10. Not be- j cause there are no lobsters along the Pa- ' cific coast— with or without the shell— I rather for the reason that last .winter's I crop of tourists so, ate Into .the crop of , shell fish that the legislature passed a bill ! prohibiting the lobster-potter from snar ing during the summer months. The Pa cific lobster by tbe* way is really, a huge craw-fish, has no claws, but is as edible as the Atlantic variety. | Then, too, you are served with eastern oysters even dur ing the months without the 1 S, the oyster being brought out here and planted. As for the small California oysters, they are I good all the year around, and are always j served as the first course of a formal din ! ner or luncheon. But generally speaking j the sea food is neither si good or of such i variety, in the Pacific, and 'attempts; to ! plant ; Atlantic fish jj along this coast have ■ ' largely resulted in failure, because the J water, is so much more salty- than along the eastern shore. - - ; . - r Dove, pigeon and squab are about the only 'game in the market just at present, and the j, Arizona;.meat is . so- tough and .unpalatable that the;best. cuts come from Chicago and Kansas ■ City. But, on the other hand,:v. California raises fresh vege tables all the year. There are few'days in,', the, $65 when you are .denied' straw berries .with., your ' breakfast; . firm, juicy and about twice the „ size of .1 the .eastern berry. Cantaloupe and fresh corn have -been-; in the* market since the latter 'part. can instruct, them, -they are well informed of the horrible night's occurrence, .in which one of the greatest cities in ancient times was buried beneath a sea of hissing, molten stone. ; :; ;y y But books, pictures and lectures cannot portray . the scene In all the grandeur it must have possessed. H. J. Pain, of Lon don, England, the most noted of all pyro technists, conceived a representation of "The Last Days of Pompeii," a production of which . will be given each night at the state fair in all the magnificence of scenic effects and realism possible to modern art. The production will be something that will excel anything every before attempted in a pyrotechnic and spectacular way;'com plete in every particular, true In each de tail to history, correct in Its costumes and grand beyond any precedent in its en tirety. ...".■. Nearly 300 performers participate in the representation of | the fete day.; Roman sports and pastimes are depicted by scores of acrobats, tumblers,- specialties, etc. A pretty plat, founded on Lord | Lyton's beautiful novel of the same name, runs through the play, but' Interest naturally centers upon the realistic crisis at the termination of the fete day's sports. Frowning Vesuvius awakes from its treacherous plumber, and with a terrific roar belches forth floods of smoke, lava, and pyrotechnics. The beautiful .temples, palace and public buildings fall one bx one and devouring flames Complete their de struction. j$ This scene is one of awful grandeur and realism. ; Street Car Facilities. The state fair grounds can be reached from Minneapolis in about half an hour. The management of the street railway company has planned to put every avail able wheel in motion next week and will run cars as often as may be necessary. It is stated by officials that there Is plenty of power this year and .that cars can be run at very frequent intervals. On Snell ing avenue, near the fair grounds, there Is a long track for storage of cars, which will be used to meet the rush of the crowds after the close of performances. ■Cars of the Como-Interurban-Harrlet line run directly from Lake Harriet down Hennepin avenue and to the fair grounds. In addition to these regular cars there .will be a large number which will run from Sixth ?™ I Hennepin to the fair grounds. Tf"" iters from any other lines in the city will be good on these cars. .; Admission to . the Fair. To correct any misunderstanding It should be' stated that admission to the fair is 50 cents—just what it has always been. For the evenings, however, the rate is but 25 cents. This price of ad mission goes into effect at 6 o'clock, so that it is possible for the people who are busy during the day to go to the grounds at 6 o'clock, see. the exhibits before 8 and then take in the amusements at the grand stand, getting the benefit of the low rate. All the fair buildings are illu minated at night except the cattle barns. of April; new potatoes, green peas, and asparagus are among the staple.vegetables to be. had most any time. . And .as for spring chicken, that sagacious bird has his head on the block the year around, in this land of almost perpetual springtime, while you don't have to wait until Thanksgiving for your turkey. So thus what the mar kets deny in sea food is made up for in game and vegetables. '•Going In for Sport." If you care to go In for sport it's but a three-hour journey to Catalina, where wild , goats are to be had for the shooting, though the sport of sports for. sports is fishing for the big Tuna. Old fishermen of the Grover Cleveland type claim that one never knows the delights of fishing before landing a Tuna, and that the most experienced of the Atlantic watermen fail in their first attempts. The tuna is said to be the gamest fish that swims, and get ting a tarpon into the boat is as tame by comparison as old maid to-. poker. \ To land your fish within an hour after you've hooked him is a record to be proud of, it taking. on an average of from two to three hours. So the tournament just fin ished under the auspices of the Catalina Tuna club proved most exciting to those interested in that sort of thing, the con testants coming from all parts of the coun try to take part in the tourney. The Tuna club is not an exclusive organization; in fact it's democratic in theory, but to be come a member of the club you must have landed alone and unaided as the circus announcer would say,— a tuna weighing at least 150 lbs. And mind they don't take your word for the weight jof the fish, — else the club would have a larger member j ship. The catch must be made under cer i tain restrictions as to weight of rod, reel I and line, and the weighing done under the j eye of the, keeper of the great seal, which i is the sad sea dog name for a land shark weighmaster. Fun at the Theaters. But If you prefer remaining on shore and letting the other fellow work so long overtime at sea, that he'd strike for shorter hours if compelled to find his pleasure fishing, there's enough of quiet amusement in town. At the Los Angeles l theater during these dull summer months we've had. Henry Miller in a round of I plays, Including "D'Arcy of the. Guards," | which he is trying on the California dog j before opening in New York. But the dog j did not fancy the dish particularly, and it j will hardly dod for New York. Blanche Bates followed in "Under Two Flags,' j and made : a pronounced individual hit, ; the fact of her being a Californian draw ing really brilliant audiences to the ! theater on the opening night beg pardon 1 premier. - The Titian-haired Leslie Carter as'Zaza gave the Angellnoa'three nights' illustration on how to break the seventh commandment, — get away with It, — and now we are threatened with an in vasion of the. Frohmans. Charles Froh man's Empire Theater .company opens i next Monday, night,. presenting for the first time out of. New York "Mrs. Dane's Defense," and: Brother <M Dan follows in j "Lady Huntsworth's Experiment." . y*yA j 'At the* Burbank, .which supports stock i companies in standard plays, season after i season, James Neill and his company i have just concluded a most profitable : seven weeks' engagement. ' The Pacific ; coast Is, properly speaking,, the home of stock companies and it is no small credit ! to. Mr. Neill that, since entering this ; field he has won for.himself and company ! a place second to none. His production i of "Barbara Friietchle" In particular Is a j most ambitious undertaking for a stock j manager,, but the results both from an 1 artistic and box office point of view spoke I for.'themselves.-standing room being at a premium during "Frietchle" week. '.'-/ i . y - Wonder* of .the Sea. But for the past month the- sea has i been giving a sort of continuous perform i ance, which as a spectacle rivals any stage i picture ever devised. About three weeks j ago people along the shore hereabouts > noticed that the; color of the/sea was • changing,'lnstead of green it was becom- I ing more and more of a mud-red hue, the i ocean- for acres presenting' a marvelous i sight, the well-defined belt'of red lying \ off shore, coming nearer at times, fluctu ating with* the tides./ At night it was dis covered that the waters ablaze with light. Flames seemed to leap from every wave, and when the surf piled up on the shore, the spectacle was truly grand. Special trains were put/on at one of the resorts; divers were, employed/ to ... leap from the piers, and appeared to be swim ming in molten metal, and came out of the water dripping with liquid Are. Various theories, were, put forward to account for the phenomena, every movement of the water, 5 like the touch of Midas, turning It to gold. The /most plausible explanation seems to; be that the . phosphorescence Is caused' by!. countless '' luminous,'/; animal ■'■-*■' y r '■•>. ;." y". Doings at the Correspondence of The Journal. Buffalo, N. V., Aug. 31.—The past has been an unusually quiet week at the Pan-American, relieved only *• by the steadily Increasing attendance, the aver age for the week not being far from 70, --000, not including Sunday, when' the at tendance always 'way below that of week days, in spite of the 25-cent admis sion. j Three . new shows . have started up on the Midway and one of them has al ready had time to "bust." This makes forty-seven Midway attractions. ■ - The West Point cadets left for school on the evening of the 28th, their furlough expiring on the 29th. During their brief stay they attracted all sorts, of favorable notice and gave daily drills either out on the grounds 'or in the : Stadium. While at the exposition they visited the breed ing, farm of a local horse fancier and in the fullness of his good feelings he gave the corps a fine stallion, valued at $5,000. The boys took the horse with them when they left and hope to be allowed to start a breeding farm at the Point, where the much-sought-after perfect cavalry horse may be bred by the government. This Is the first stallion ever owned by the United States government. Mrs. W. S. Pattee, wife of Dean Pattee of the university law school, her son Richard and daughter paid the exposition a four-day visit the latter part of the week. . Tuesday to Friday of this week the joy ous bark of the festive dog echoed throughout Pan-Amdom. The much promised dog show . took place in the cattle sheds near the East Amherst gate.

Nine breeds of swine are being shown. James MacMullan of Minneapolis, su perintendent for the Minnesota board of managers, was absent for several days on a trip to Charleston, S. C., where he looked over the forthcoming exposition to be. held there. Mr. MacMullan is enthu siastic about the Charleston exposition, which begins immediately after the close ,of the Pan-American, but the board of managers will probably not make any ex hibit from Minnesota there. Charleston's exposition officials have been striving in every way to get all the exhibitors possible to display at their show after the close of the Pan-Ameri can. Efforts have been made to induce Minnesota to take space or build a build ing, but there is little prospect that anything will be done. Special invitations for President's Day, Sept. 5, will shortly be out. The affair, because of the expected crowd, will be largely governed by Invitations, and It is expected that this may prove the largest day of the exposition, though New York Day may exceed it. The 1 attendance from Minnesota still holds up well, 267 having registered at the Minnesota building Sunday to Wednesday, Inclusive, from the state. Of this num ber 92 registered from Minneapolis, 67 from St. Paul and 108 from the state at large. Minneapolis, at least, did her share. . • ..■ • '■: y ■ ■ '■ t..

Four men are employed in the shops, and, at the close of a hot day's work, they have frequently found that their sup ply ofdrinklng '• water has been Insuffi cient to; meet the' demands made upon It. The tank stands in one corner of the of fice, and is—or rather | was—patronized by every thirsty man who chanced in. The. practical -joker, however, ■ like the French king, has-changed all that.

"Help yourself." culae,, which grew brighter and brighter with' decomposition. " That is, the sea shines and smells, and the more it shines the worse" it smells, for the odor finally became, so offensive as to drive many cottagers back to. town, and just about the time they were settled, presto! the phosphorescence was gone in a single night, and the Pacific had taken on its normal' deep green coloring again. But the scientists; are still wrangling over causes and "effects, one faction - claiming that an infinitesimal bit of still life called the salpa— modest name for a scientist — Is responsible for It all. "Some years they are scarce, but this season seems favora ble to their production.
