Los Angeles county is famous the
world over as a great breeding center,
and why not? Is any county in America
better adapted for the raising of fine
stock than Los Angeles county? The
Hon. L. J. 'Rose, probably the most suc
cessful trotting horse breeder in Amer
ica, wrote as follows several years since,
when describing the benefits of this
"But I fear you will think that lam
neglecting the business in hand, that is,
writing about horses; yet I may be ex
cused if I am enthused, and believe that
all these natural advantages, all this
beauty of scenery, all this fertility of
soil, this purity of atmosphere, this
pleasant climate, where we never have
extreme heat nor cold, where every day
is almost always sunshine and never
cold, and every night cool and refresh
ing ; where the grasß is the most abund
ant and nutiitions; where the water
is the purest, should also be the most
favored for the production of the ideal
horse. Nor is this belief entirely with
out some facts for its foundation. lam
now writing by a window that overlooks
San Gabriel valley for miles, and the
orange groves and vineyards of Sunny
Slope, my former home, whero more
trotters have been foaled and made, in
propr rt.ion to the number bred and time
spent, than any spot on earth. In Bight,
too, lies Santa Anita, the home and
breeding farm of E. J. Baldwin, Esq.,
where he has reared his runners, all of
which have been winners, and, for the
number bred, have been better per
formers than any like number bred in
Kentucky, or any other country.
"Both of these places are in plain
view from my window. I may there
fore be excused if lam somewhat elated,
for it cannot be that both of these
phenomenal successes be accidents; so
they may be deemed facts that cast
their shadows before."
Mr. Rose makes a great point in favor
of this county—one that cannot success
fully be controverted. I now propose to
show what this county has accomplished
in the way of breeding. Justice cannot
be done the subject in the limited space
at my disposal. L. J. Rose, E. J. Bald
win, L. H. Titus, Hancock Johnson and
other pioneer breeders have established
the reputation of this county on a sound
basis, as the following wonderful show
ing will demonstrate very effectually :
The fastest pacer the world ever saw
is Direct, 2:06. Direct was bred by Mr.
Titus of San Gabriel. Not only is Direct
the fastest pacer, but he also enjoys the
distinction of being the fastest double
gaited horse, having a record of 2:18*4
at the trotting gait. He also ha-i the
fastest race record. At Columbus,
Term., laßt year the black little
demon from California beat the
hitherto invincible Hal Pointer in
2:09, 2:08 and 2 ;08%. Etfiora, 2:23> 2 ,
the dam of Direct, was by old Echo,
and was bred by John Young of Lob
The lirst 2 year-old that ever trotted
inside of 2:30 was Sweetheart, a Los An
geles filly, bred by L. J. Hose. In 1880
Sweetheart electrified the trotting world
by making a mile in 2:26 12,l 2 , which at
that time was the world's 2 year-old
Sultan, a LO9 Angoles bred stallion,
has sired more 2:30 performers than any
other stallion ever bred in the west.
Twenty-five of his get have trotted in
2:30 or better.
The fastest yearling In the world over
an eliptical or regulation track 13 Free
dom, 2:29%. Sable, the grand dam of
Freedom, was bred in this county, at
Sunny Slope.
The highest price ever paid for a 2
year-old trotter was paid for Mascot at
a public sale in New York. This aris-,
tocraticallv-bred youngster sold for'
$26,000. Mascot, who was bred by L. J.
Rose, was by Stamboul, 2:11, dam
In 1890 the Boeemeado consignment
of trotters, consisting of forty-seven
head, sold under the hammer at New
York for $118,750. The average was
$2526, which is the highest average ever
obtained. How is that for a record?
Ten 3-year-olds have held the world's
3-year-old record since Blackwood
gained the crown in 1869, with a record
of 2:31. In 188;) Hinda Rose lowered
the record to and in 1886 Sable,
Wilkes to 2:18. Both the dams of
Hinda Rose and Sable Wilkes were
bred in Los Angeles county.
In 1888 Arrow held the 4 and 5-year
old pacing record, with a mark of 2:14
and 2:13%- Arrow was by old A. W.
Richmond, and was bred by Hancock
Bonita, a Santa Anita bred mare, won
a race in Chicago in 1889, over a mile
and an eighth of ground in 1:53%. It
was the fastest time made at that dis
tance that year and was within a
quarter of a second of the world's rec
ord in 1889.
Sons and daughters of Minnehaha
have sold for more than $120,000.
This county was the first to produce a
mare who was the dam of two 3-year
old trotters with records better than
2:20. Reference ia made to Beautiful
Bells the dam of Hinda Rose and Bell
Many different yearlings have held
the world's record, but only one mare
has produced t?;o yearling record break
ers. That mare was the Lob Angeles
bred Beautiful Bells. She produced
Hinda Eose, 2:36%, and Bell Bird,

brought him here from the east when a
The great American derby has been
won twice by Los Angeles bred horses.
Silver Cloud and Volante both won this
classic race in brilliant style. No coun
ty in America has produced two winners
except Los Angeles county.
Los Angeles county has produced such
celebrated flyers as Volante,. Sinaloa,
Gano, Lucky 8., Fallen Leaf, Espe
ranza, Santiago, Geraldine, Caliente,
Grisette, Laredo, Santa Ana and others.
This is a remarkable showing, especially
when it is stated thrt they were all
raised at Santa Anita, the celebrated
breeding farm of E. J. Baldwin.
In 1888 the Santa Anita string of run
ners, consisting of twenty head, won
$108,700 in purses and stakes on the
eastern turf.
Lucky B. by Rutherford, was the
greatest cup horse of his day. Lucky
B. was bred and raised in this county.
Geraldine, a nfare by Grin stead and
bred by Mr. Adams of this county, holds
the half mile running record of the
world. Geraldine's record is 46 seconds.
In her 4-year-old form Geraldine was
the speediest sprinter in all America.
On Thursday, August 28,1890, Sinaloa,
a Los Angeles bred mare, won the Jersey
handicap at Monmouth park under a
pull, with 117 pounds up, in the sensa
tional time of 2:04 for 1% miles straight
away, the fastest record ever made by a
Three Lob Angeles bred trotters sold
under the hammer at New York for
$76,000, while another one was sold at a
private sale a month previous for $50,000.
These four trotters were all bred by L.
J. Rose.
Less than six brood mares in America
have produced six trotters who have
records better than 2;30. Beautiful
Bells is the dam of Bell Bird 2:26K
(yearling), Bell Boy 2:1934 (3-year-old)",
Bell Flower 2:24% (2-year-old), Hinda
Rose 2:19)4 (3-year-old), St. 8e12:24>£
and Palo Alto Belle (2-year-old),
and can justly be accounted the sensa
tional brood mare of America. Chimes,
another son, has a record of 2:30%,
while Electric Bell and Bow Bells are
pretty sure to go into the list this year.
The champion yearling pacer of the
world is Fausta, who last year paced a
mile in the sensational time of 2:22%.
Faustino, a brother of Fausta, trotted a
mile in a race as a 3-year old in 2:14%,
and who also took a yearling record of
2:35, and a 2-year-old record of 2:24.
The grand dam of Fausta and Faustino
was Dell Foster, a mare by A. W. Rich
mond and bred by Hancock Johnson of
Los Angeles.
Los Angeles county has produced one
out of the five fastest stallions in the

The Los Angelea horses Santiago and
Miss Ford have also finished second in
that classic race.

trotters. No mother and daughter
in America can make such a showing.
Jack and Geneva S., two eastern bred
trotters, were wintered in Los Angeles.
The next season they were the two
biggest winners on the grand circuit.
In 1888, Emperor of Norfolk and Los
Angeleß, two 3-year-olds in the Santa
Anita string won $73,000. The Emperor
started eleven times and was first past
the post nine times, waa second once
and third once. Los Angeleß won thir
teen out of twenty-six raceß, and was
only unplaced in two races.
In 1887, -the Loa Angelea horse Vo
lante started in twenty-eight races
against the best hcrses in America and
won no less than thirteen races.

Two Native Plants Worthy of
A Riverside Man Writes of the Gum
The Wild Poppy and the Christmas
Berry Tree—Planting; Decid
uous Trees—Notes.
Etc, Bto.
Whenever the grounds are of suffi
cient Bize to allow for the growing of
large shrubs, two native plants are well
worthy of cultivation, says Miss K. O.
Sessions in the San Diego Union.
Plants that aie greatly admired by all
visitors and eagerly sought for by all
plant and flower lovers. I refer to the
romneyacoulteri and the photinia arbu
tifolia. The lormer is the beautiful,
large, single white poppy, with its huge
golden knob of staniens, an ideal flower
for the artist indeed. It grows near
the Mexican line and abundantly below,
in Lower California. It is also found in
parts of San Bernardino and Orange
counties. It is a large growing, shrubby
plant, with handsome glaucous foliage,
true to the bluish green foliage of our
common garden poppy, but not in
shape of leaf. From May until
September it tosseß its bird-like
flowers high into the air on
long, woody stems. It thrives admira
bly in cultivation and is seen occasion
ally as a very choice cut flower in San
About February the old wood should
be trimmed out and immediately the
strong young shoots will appear. Most
poppies are annuals but nature has pro
vided in the romneya a perennial shrub.
The photinia arbutifolia is our "Christ
mas Berry" tree, a hardy evergreen
shrub with pretty white flowers like the
spike of the liiy oi the valley". In culti
vation the berries are luxuriant and very
ornamental on tbe plant,able to brighten
any lawn or group of back ground
shrubbery during November and Decem
ber. The plants can be grown tall and
shapely and beneath their shade during
spring and summer pansies or violets
Will thrive or a bed of callas or foliage
geraniums. On the extensive grounds
of the Smiley brothers, at Redlands,this
photinia is being grown in the nursery
by the hundreds, for subsequent plant
ing on the place.
Mr. James Boyd, in the Riverside
Phoenix, has the following:
The gum disease, about which some
uneasiness has been felt by one or two
orchardists who have got it somewhat,
is nothing to be alarmed about. While
it is very destructive when the condi
tions are favorable to its development,
it is a disease that can, in the writer's
opinion, be kept almost entirely out of
an orchard. The gum disease on the
orange is practically the same disease
that attacks the lemon, but the orange
appears so far to be proof or nearly so
against it. While the lemon will be
attacked by it when it gets to be from
12 to 20 years old, the orange seldom
suffers. ,
At least one of tne conditions that
produce the disease is too much stag
nant water close to the trunk of the
tree, in irrigating. The orchards where
it at present shows itself are those or
chards that are very flat, and where the
soil is "if anything lower round the
trees than between the rows; and it
generally appears lirst where waste water
stands at the ends of the rows, and
from there spreads and gradually ex
tends up the rows towards the irrigating
ditch. It invariably beging in the root
first, and co insidious is it approachs at
times that the first notice the orchardist
has of it is when the tree begins to look
yellow, and as if it were in poor health.
When bad it may, in vigorous trees, ex
tend somewhat to the branches, but the
source of the evil is in the root.
There is no preventive but in keeping
the water away from the roots, and this
can be easily done by a light plowing
toward the trees, and leaving a slight
depression in the center of the row.
VVhen#nce it makes its appearance, the
best way is to cut out every portion of
diseased bark and to cover with a mix
ture, such as paint or asphaltum, to ex
clude the air and moisture, when, in a
few months, if not too far gone, all
traces of it will disappear. When, how
ever, the trunk is completely girdled,
and the bark on the roots pretty well
gone, there is no remedy but digging up
and making stove-wood of the trees.
In this case it is sometimes difficult to
get another tree to grow in the place of
the one displaced, and the best way of
all to insure the growth of a new tree is
to dig a good-sized hole and fill up with
virgin soil from the outside. After the
trees are well started and growing, a
light top dressing of good stable manure,
taking care that the manure does not
touch the bark, will generally insure
vigorous growth.
The gum disease is a quite different
disease from what is called the foot-rot.
The foot rot is rare in California, and
differs from the gum disease in the tree
appearing to be moist near the root, as
if the sap was exuding all the time, un
til it fully decays.
The disease that attacks seed bed
plants appears to be nearly allied to the
foot-root, for in the young plants the
root decays first, and the bark of the
root will slough right oft' the tap-root.
The gum disease ia generally dry and
the gum exudes so slowly that it dries
aB fast as it appears. A similar disease
attacks apricots, and when it does ia
generally fatal, and the trees will die in
the summer in which they are attacked.
Jeannie C. Carr of Pasadena writes to
the Rural Press concerning this tree
that should be more generally known
and planted as an ornamental tree:
This showiest of the eucalypti "makes
a distinct forest belt in the coast region
of Western Australia, from the western
side of Irwin's inlet 'to the entrance of
tbe Shannon, though never actually ap
proaching the sea Bhore."
'The specific name of this gorgeous
tree was chosen before the brilliancy
of its flowers was known, and alludes
to the similarity of its leaves to those
of the fig trees ficus elastica, the prin
cipal caoutchouc tree of India.
It bears a strong resemblance to E.
calophylla, but there is a marked dif
ference in the seedling of the two
species, the seedling leaves of the latter
never being "inserted above their base
to the stalk," as they are in ficifolia.
Dr. Mueller saya of this, in tbe num
ber of his great work when it was first
published: "This eucalyptus is one of
the most splendid of recent acquisitions
to horticulture, and was introduced by
the writer of this work into the Botanic
garden of Melbourne in 1860, where it
flowered already a few years afterwards
while yet only in a bushy state. Soon
subsequently he commenced to intro
duce it abroad. Hardly anything more
gorgeous can be imagined than forests
of E. ficifolia about the end of January
or beginning of February, when the
brilliant trusses of flowers diffuse a rich
red over the dark foliage of the whole
landscape occupied by this tree. It
should have a place in every select or
namental arboretum in zones free of
frost and excessive heat."
January aud February are the months
for planting deciduous fruit trees in this
region. Plant early and well. A few
acres properly planted nowwill be worth
many times what a large acreage will be
poorly planted late in the season. Some
growers adviße the planting of 2 and
3-year-old trees. This is generally
claimed to be a mistake. While in a
few instances trees of that age have been
taken up and transplanted successfully
by our more experienced horticulturists,
the average grower and the beginner will
meet with much better success from
planting 1-year-old trees. There are
thousands of instances in this state where
1-year-old trees, and even dormant buds,
have outstripped in their growth trees
transplanted when two and three years
old. Dig large, deep holes; spend time
and labor on your trees and future re
sults from your orchard will more thau
repay you. Be careful and not plant
too deep, as many trees are smothered
and stunted by deep planting. Put
plenty of good, rich soil in the bottom
oi each hole. Be sure that the roots
have plenty of room and that they come
well in contact with fine top soil, pressed
firmly about them. Trees planted well
and cared for are sure to live and thrive,
and the owner is well on his way toward
becoming a very successful and prosper
ous fruit grower. —[Progress.

It will be remembered that for come
time past the nurserymen who made
practice of importing orange trees into
the state from Florida have claimed that
the purple Florida scale would not live
in California more than one, or, at most,
two years. It has now been ascertained
by John Scott, the horticultural com
missioner of Los Angeles county, that
beyond a doubt the scale will thrive, if
anything, better than in Florida, and
trees brought into tbe state three and
four years ago are now covered with the

New York, Jan. 30th.
Stylish jewelry indicates an increased
partiality for enameling in colors, and
a large proportion of medium-priced
and also expensive articles are illustra
tions of this beautiful art. Exquisite
Geneva watches for ladies are in plain
gold, less than an inch in diameter, also
in colored enameling, these last being
somewhat larger, and show tiny wreaths
of flowers on a pink surface, or perhaps
a landscape, sometimes a single figure,
or a group of figures. These watches
make up in price for what is lacking in
size. The plainest style, without a
chatelaine, commences at $50 and runs
up to $260. Very Bhort plain or jeweled
chatelaines are used with these minia
ture beauties, pinned on the front of the
coisage, a little to one side, while
in -direct opposition is seen at
the opera and other evening entertain
ments delicate gold chains, worn around
the neck, a yard and a half in length
with pearls set in about three inches
apart, to which is attached an opera
glass or fancy watch.
Necklaces are very fashionable this
season, and the latest style is from
twenty to thirty strands of fine gold
cord, held in position by three upright
bars of small pearls or diamonds, one in
front and one on each side, producing a
collar-like effect. A large jewel in front
instead of a bar ia a beautiful change,
but materially increases the cost,
A single pendant or several amaller
ones is also very fashionable, and an
enameled chain with five or seven pend
antß of the same size, either of stones or
enameled flowers, is another favorite
style. The bow-knot or rosette shape
are popular for brooches, and in general
appearance resemble "baby ribbon"
bows, as the simulated ribbon is about
tbe same width, and while many are of
plain gold, others are enamelled in
stylish colors, dotted over with dia
mond, ruby or emerald sparks. Frogs
and lizards are new designs in brooches,
but these are very expensive, being
almost entirely composed of jewels. A
little green frog, about an inch long,
with diamond eyes and a white enam
elled body covered with emeralds, costß
$100, so that the privilege of wearing
frogs is exclusively confined to the rich.
No material change has taken place in
earrings or bracelets for two seasons
past; therefore designs then fashionable
remain in style.
regarding Btyle and price—from the
modest spangled gauze at $5 to the
gorgeous Venetian point at $275. The
newest fan is the oldest, so to speak;
being a revival of the antique fan of
Louis XVI, painted in Watteau figures
on silk with ivory sticks in open work
carving, and is much smaller than other
fashionable styles. Amber-shell hand
les are also a novelty, pro
duced by clarifying light colored
tortoise shell, and are so expensive that
they are only used with very fine lace
or feathers. A beauty in point lace,
with an exquisite center piece, painted
by a leading Parisian artist, and amber
shell stick may be had for $250. The
most beautiful and expensive fans of the
season are seen in opera boxes, from
which emanates the delicious fragrance
of Lauteir's May bells,and Maybells violet
water is also a luxury much used by our
fashionable classes. Marabout or os
trich feather fans are very popular:
those in "shaded feathers" being quite
a novelty and reasonable in price, be
ginning at $40. Black or white ostrich
feather fans are quite large, measuring
seventeen inches in length, and the
breadth of the feathers and material of
the sticks constitute their greatest charm
and increase their cost. Black
lace fans remain in style, and
spangles are much used on
gauze, duchesse or applique,
but never with real point. What fash
ion is pleased to term an "opera outfit"
is a brocaded silk bag, containing a fan,
bon-bon box, opera glasses and powder
puff box, suspended from the waist by
ribbon loops, with long, flowing ends.
of today, a luxuriant growth of hair is
rather a disadvantage than otherwise,

of everything like stiffness is the pre
vailing idea in present styles, and the
fancy for waved hair, precludes any
thing akin to formality. Evening coif
fures are generally high, but a style in
twisted loops, half of which is placed on
top of the head, and the lower half
closely pinned to the back with a fancy
pin ,is very popular, and less try
ing than other styles, being equally
suitable for all occasions. For balls or
the opera a parure of ribbon is very
fashionable, consisting of narrow white
or colored ribbon, wound on ribbon
wire, passing around the head under tbe
high knot, with several high loops and
Bhort ends in front, and were not the

somewhat ungraceful. Ornamental pins
are a necessity, and while the most
beautisul are of real jewels, those
in gilt, colored stones, amber shell or
tortoise shell are very attractive and
sufficiently expensive for a perhaps
transitory style. High tortoise shell
combs are again fashionable, and cer

Their Condition and Wants in Lo*
No topic of public interest is worthy
of more attention than that of the kin
dergarten system of education, which,
originated in the mind of Froebel, a
student under Pestalozzi, and one of four
famous educational reformers—Come-
niua in the seventeenth, Rousseaujin the
eighteenth and Pestalozzi in the nine
teenth century, were the three preced
ing him.
To Rousseau's estimate of "individ
ual growth and moral excellence," and
to Pestalozzi's idea of "harmony be
tween individuals and society and com
munion with God," Froebel added
the belief in the harmonious de
velopment of the child's facul
ties; to secure which, mental and
moral training are not sufficient, but
physical exercises are also necessary,
that work of the hands, and thought
that this develops, may make of tbe
child, almost at the outset, "a young
discoverer, inventor and manufacturer."
He was convinced that the physical and
intellectual faculties of a child must de
velop slowly; that the transition from
the nursery to the ordinary school room,
is too abrupt, and that the kindergarten
is the bridge by which the passage is
made easy.
These schools were first introduced
into the United States by Mme. Kriege
and her daughter, Alma Kriege, who
had been sent to New York, from Eu
rope, by Baroness Yon Marenholz Bu
low, IFroebel'e "chief apostle." Mra.
Horace Mann of Boston invited them to
that city, where their teachings took
such deep hold that a kindergarten and
normal class was formed.
In 1870, through the persistent efforts
of Miss Peabody, sister of Mre. Mann, the
city government agreed to support one
kindergarten, and in 1875 established
four others, but did not appropriate suf
ficient funds for their support.
Mrs. Qaincy Shaw, daughter of Pro
fessor Agassiz, possessed of "deep and
abiding enthusiasm for the principles of
Froebel," and of marvellous executive
ability, established twenty free kinder
gartens, and devoted her great wealth
to them, carrying them on twelve years.
In 1887 the school board incorporated
these in the public school system.
The city of Los Angeles was not far
behind; as in 1890, it took the same step
with regard to the one well established
kindergarten, which till that year had
been supported by the efforts of a few
earnest women. Besides this school,
the city opened eight or nine others, in
the various wards, but the kinder
garten association still worked on,
and established two new charity
kindergartens, in districts where they
were much needed, but not yet supplied
by the city. These two schools are now
dependent upon-funds raised by contri
butions from most of those who had
been interested in the one lately es
To add to these funds, the board of
managers have planned a course of lec
tures to be given at the Los Angelea
theater as follows: On February 20th,
readings by Cable, from hia writinga on
Creole Life; February 23d, lecture by

L> Grippe 1
The tendency of this disease toward
pneumonia is what makes it dangeious.
La grippe requires precisely the same
treatment as a severe cold. Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is famous for its
cures of severe colds. Thia remedy
successfully counteracts the tendency of
the disease to result in pneumonia,
provided that proper care be taken to
avoid exposure when recovering from
tho attack. Careful inquiry among the
many thousands who have used this
remedy during tbe epidemics of the
past two years has failed to discover a
single case that has not recovered or
that has resulted in pneumonia. Fifty
