A Lot of Information as to What and What Not to Wear. Panniers Beginning to Appear Again. Bracelets and Many of Them the Correct Thing;. There's something new in—something fearfully and wonderfully new. It's plastic ornamentation. The little I have seen of it is very artistic, and speaks volumes in its praise. When you want a new gown that will astonish the neigh bors, just get one plastic applique, just as you'd get your drawing-ioom wall plastic appliqued. You will find it's charming. There's a woman lecturing on love, and life and death, and a few such simple little subjects, who wears these sort of things, and tbey say she's stunning. But then she's a pretty woman, which makes a difference. She has her gowns decorated from these plastic models to suit her subject. For example, when she speaks of love her gown is aglow with Hymen's torches and interesting things like that. I won der what kind of a gown she wears when she talks of divorces? You will hear more anon about this. Picturesque idea, isn't it? Gives such a scope to a fervid imagination. *** Panniers are in; only creeping, though. I don't think they'll be able to walk much before the leaves begin to fall. They're not bad for a very tall, very slight figure. Not half bad. But they're ugly unlees the wearer is tall and slight. # » # The Medici collar has seen its last days. It's a pity, too, for of all fashions fit for this coast climate, that was the best. The wind couldn't blow it away from your throat, and the fog couldn't creep into your neck, when you wore a Medici. But such are the griefs of women. Just as a good sensible idea takes possession of us, fashion stamps her tyrannical foot and says "adieu," Bracelets are the thing nowadays. Lots of bracelets, not loose bangles, but good, tight, handcuff looking banda that 1 don't make a large hand look smaller by any means. However, what's the use of modes if they are not to be fol lowed. If I had large, bright pink hands and sauare wrists, though, I would think a good long think before I would draw attention to them in any such thought less way as that. *** Full purses are always in style, but tbey must be big, walletish affairs now. # * » It's time for the summer crop of wed dings, isn't it? Some of the gowns are ripe now, and I will tell you something about them. The Marguerite bridesmaid is quite the prettiest thing of the season. She must be gowned in white, of course — pure, soft, snow white; is there anything sweeter in the world? And her gown must be of a soft silk so fine that there isn't a suspicion of a rustle about it. It must be made just precisely like dear little Gretchen's gray gown in the opera, and the hair mnet be down in girlish braids. A quaint little net of pearls and sityer is pretty on that hair; a close, becoming, mediajval net, I mean, and then there's a great bunch of wide-eyed marguerites to carry. A girl that doesn't look tempting enough to eat, when she's a marguerite brides maid, ought.to get her to a nunnery without an hour's delay. ♦ i * * The snowdrop maid of honor is a dear delight, too. Her gown can be of very delicate green, just the tender green of a new leaf, or it can be white. But it must be fine and soft and clinging, and there must be a fine girdle of snow drops, not a wide belt, fateforfend! Just a dainty line of the blossoms, and then any girl with nice black hair knows how to make herself look perfectly infatuat ing with a little crown of white flowers. a * * Since Cleopatra came flowers are the thing for the hair. That is, when one's gown is nice and picturesque. The Cle opatra style of gown is beautiful, but it does not do lor brides or their attend ants. Why not? Oh, well—because. Simply because—bridesmaids should look as- if they had never heard of the old serpent of the Nile; never heard the faintest whisper of her. a » » White stockings are dawning upon a reluctant populace. They are. There's no use trying to deny "it. They're of silk and embroidered. Always some thing suggestive of the lanky down east country school girl about them, though, isn't there ? Or of a flunky, who brings on the letters in a comic opera. # * * Parasols are decorated with knots of my lady's favorite flower. Right on to the top if you please, and on to the handle, too, be it known. Flowers can never be in bad taste any more than water and air. That's one thing about natural things. They do wear well. Complexions, for instance. a » # There are some of the prettiest travel ing cloaks that were ever invented. Long, graceful things, light as feathers and as shakable as a naughty child. Never wrinkle, never tear, never hold dust. They are of thin surah, pongees, etc. Most of 'em are black, and they are very smart, brightened with a bit of gay color. * * "Button, button, who's got tbe but ton?" Every one, every one in the wide, wide world, and they're all on the same gown. Every one ia sprinkled with them. They are moderate in size, just now, but hearken to the voice of the prophet. They'll be saucers soon. Then they'll disappear, see if they don't. Mme. Le Vanway. Diamonds Dlscoverd in British Guiana. Another source of diamond supply haa just been found in British Guiana, where Mr. Kaufman, n gold mine owner, recently collected 638 stones. He sent them to an expert in London for analysis, who de clared 633 of the specimens to tie diamonds of the purest water. It is thought that the discovery opens up a new and unrivaled source of prosperity for~the colony. To Build a New Temple. A lamentable state of decay character izes the cradle of Buddhism, the spot under the sacred botree at Buddhagaya, India, where Gautama attained Budda hood. The pilgrims who crowd to the spot have damaged the statnes and ruins by breaking, and also by daubing them with colors. Now pious Buddhists pro pose to found a new temple. The button hunter is said to be the latest terror of the celebrities. This style of col lector is reputed to be in the habit of dog ging his victim's steps and surreptitiously removing a button from his coat. AMONG THE RANCHES.

Thomas Holmes, of the eastern partof the county, in a letter to the Lordsburg" Southern Californian, thus estimates the cost and proceeds of a seven-acre prune orchard he put out six years ago : 7 acres, at 1120 per acre % 840 00 784 trees, at 15 cents (112 per acre)... 117 60 Grading and planting ... 130 CO Care of orchard 5 years, at $2.50 per acre 457 50 Total $1525 10 At 3 years old, fruit j 75 00 At 4 years old, fruit 40 00 At 5 years old, fruit 2223 35 The last crop I sold at 2 cents green, delivered at the depot. Deduct about $200 for gathering crops and you will get net for the three crops to the sixth year. I figure at regular price of labor. It cost me much less, having my own teams and hiring by the month. Seven acres of land at $200 per acre, with water,can be planted and cared for three years, or until they bear enough to pay expenses, or nearly so, for $1800; or, in other words, the sixth year it will pay for itself with interest on the in vestment. 80MB STRAWBERRIES. , T. F. Griswold has taken from his three acres of strawberries 6000 pounds as the result of one picking. The fruit is of superb quality and very large, some having been picked measuring four and one-half by five and one-half inches. — [San Gabriel Valley Arguß. A THOUSAND POUNDS A DAY. There ij a magnificent showing of fruit on the blackberry vines set out last spring by W. E. Ferguson, of Glen dora. There seems to be a perfect mass of fruit from end to end of each symmet rical row. He will have about a thou sand pounds a day during the season, which are already sold to a Los Angeles man. who virtually has control of the crops of this variety in this vicinity, there being only two other fields of this kind, one at Alhambra, and one at Ban ning, Cal. —[San Gabriel Valley Argus. HIGH RATES ON FRUIT. One of our strawberry shippers pays from $100 to $150 a day for expressage on his fruit. It is easy to see that the express company is making the money. Our growers should unite and demand better rates. A move is on foot, how ever, to ship by the carload to can neries. We hope the arrangement, which is nearly completed, will prove a permanent advantage. A PEST-OF PRUNE TREES. Horticultural Commissioner Jones is receiving frequent inquiries regarding a brown beetle which feeds upon the ten der shoots of deciduous fruit trees, and is particularly fond of the foliage of the prune. Mr. Jones, writing on the sub ject, says. "It's habit is to feed upon the foliage in the night and it is seldom found on the tree in daylight. If you find the foliage of youT trees being destroyed and can find no insect on the tree, look at the ground near the roots. You will find little depressions in the dry soil and you will find the beetle, which will be of snuff-brown color, from three-eighths to five-sixteenths of an inch long, with six legs. The remedy is to spray the fofiage with Paris green, one tablespoonful to two gallons of water."—[San Diego Sun. Will Be Given Away. Our enterprising druggists, R. w.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS News and Gossip About the Mimic World. The Fakir at the Los Angeles Tomorrow Night. Off With the Old Love, On With ' the New. Companies Which are Billed to Appear Here—Professionals Who are About to Marry—Personal Notes. Lots of people like them or they would soon vanish from the stage. Critics may solemnly damn them, peo ple may call them rot,, ,aud everybody will admit that they are nothing but nonsense, but the musical-farce-comedy with its jingles and black stockings and impossible plot is here, and is growing in popularity. Oneof the newest is called The Fakir; names don't matter in this style of dra matic productions; probably The Mis sionary, or The Stone on the Road, or The Monkey and the Parrot, or A Cold Day for a Brass Monkey, would fit it just as well. But that does not matter. The Fakir will _ open at the Los Angeles theater tomorrow evening. The per formance is well spoken of, and simply claims to be a laugh generator. There are some clever people and a lot of pretty girls in the company. The cast is: #» Seth Boker .. .Mark Bulllvaa Ell Quick Max Arnold Colonel Lexington Alf. Hampton Jack Castaway Geo. Mitchell Larry Ludlow JohnGilroy Tommy Tombs Fred. Rankin Charity Banks Lizzie DerlousDaly Mrs. Boker Helen Reimer Patty Boker Rosa France Rosa Vandeyblunk Jennette St. Henry FayFollibud Katherine B. Howe Nydia Lillian Markham Daphne Mollie Sherwood Chloe Dudie Tracy OFF WITH THE OLD, ON WITH THE NEW. What's the use of asking if marriage is a failure? Nobody appears to be able to get enough of it. Particularly is this, the case with theatrical people. They are forever getting married and unmar ried and sometimes remarried, and of ten don't bother a bit about the formal ities of parson and ring. Now we have three stars of magni tude, each of whom haa trod the prim rose path of wedded dalliance vn v il i£ debouched into the divorce court. The best known of the trio in Los An geles Is Margaret Mather. Though she did make a sweet maidenly Juliet there was always an indication about Margaret of domesticity; possibly this was sug gested by her rather maternal amplitude between her throat and her waist. She married a pretty musician who, for sev eral seasons, led the opera house orches tra under Manager Wyatt, and who is in declining health. His successor in Miss Mather's affections is said to be Mr. Otis Skinner, who has been her support during the past season; the chances are that hereafter their posi tions will be reversed —she supporting him. They are both in Europe, but the announcement is made that Miss Math er will continue to appear "under the direction of Otis Skinner." Otis may think so now; but if half is true of what has been told of Miss Mather's inde pendence, Mr. Skinner will very soon after the honeymoon carry the satchel as humbly as do most men who are known as their wife's husband. The others of the two mentioned are Rose Coghlan and J. K. Emmett. Mrs. Coghlan will also become the support of her present support, Mr. John T. Sulli van. He is a fine actor, an excellent manager and a well-liked man. Mr. C. G. Edgerly, who used to be Mr. Rose Coghlan, is also to marry again, but not an actress this time. Jo Emmett a short time ago gave his wife half his property, wrapped up in a decree of divorce, and then he fell in iove with a girl in his company named Helen Sedgwick, a daughter of Commo dore Brady and a sister of that shapely burlesquer, Irene Perry. She is now in England with Emmett, and it is said they will be married. It is not known whether Miss Sedgwick has taken the leap matrimonial before or not. THE OWLS. The Owls will produce T. W. Robert son's comedy-drama, Caste, on Teus day evening, June 2d. In addition to the old favorites, the club will intro duce Mrs. Minnie Hance Owens, Mrs. Vera M. Beane, and everybody's come dian, Tom Barnes. Miss Gertrude Fos ter, the clover leading lady, will be seen for the first time in an emotional part, and those who have seen the rehearsals say that her success in this line is as sured. Mr. Lehman will portray the drunken father in a way that has gained for him thousands of admirers among the theater goers. NOTES. Louis Harrison is again on the road with a Pearl of Pekin company. Jos. R. Grismer and Phoebe Davis will produce the Octoroon next season. Manager Harry Williams, of the Waifs of New York company, was formerly city editor of the Chicago Herald. W. J. Gilmore's big company, playing Twelve Temptations, are duesiat the Grand the second week in July/ Manager Charles H. Yale is seeking to rejuvenate the Sea King by having the score and libretto rewritten. Joseph Grismer has purchased a new play by William Haworth, called Fern cliff. It is founded on war events. Amy Ames introduces in the Waifs of New York her singing specialties which made her famous in Tin Soldier and Nat ural Gas. Al. Hayman has purchased a control ing interest in the Tabor Grand, at Den ver. This completes his chain of thea ters from Los Angeles to Chicago. The Abbie Carrington Opera company played tbe Rose of Castile at Helena, Mont., without chorus or orchestra. Music and Drama calls it "an anomaly." May Howard having amassed a for tune, as tbe head of the leg show for years, has decided to forsake tbe fleshly PAGES 9 TO 12. FIVE CENTS. phase of the drama, and will star next season in a farce-comedy. Henry Miller, the lachrymose, haa been engaged to play Liecester by Marie Wainwright, in her new play, Amy Rob sart. There must be some people who think he can act. The New York Dramatic News statea that Lizzie Derious Daly closed with the Fakir company at Kansas City, yet she is billed for tomorrow night's perform ance of that company. The Juch Opera company were strand ed in St. Louis last week. Too much Locke is the key to their situation. They will Seymour of the same kind of luck if they stick to him. Stuart Harold, well known on this coast, will alternate with Taglia pietra, the leading baritone roles in the English Opera company at the Grand opera house, New York.
