A Place Where the Desert Is Being Transformed. Delegates to the International Con gress Take an Rnioyable Trip. Th* Southern Pacific Railway Gives the Visitors a Journey to Indlo. Th* Walls and What They Bave Doss, Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock tbe last of the Irrigation congress delegates remaining here, together with a com mittee of 20 from the chamber of com merce, accepted the courtesies and hospitality of the Southern Pacific rail road for an excursion to Indio. The train waa a handsome one, just out oi shops, officered with trusty engineer and conductor, with Captain Henry steere as chaperon. Trie dnst had been laid and the atmosphere purified by the rains of the night previous, and the elements and all entered into a joint conspiracy to make thia parting excur sion the pleasanteßt of all. The object of tbis trip was to see the desert in all ita intensity and -what water would do even on tbe lands below sen level. Tbe trip through the dan Gabriel, Pomona and San Bernardino valleys was enjoyed by the visitors and not leas by the Loa Angeles men, who seemed astonished at tbe improvements in tbis sectlou since tbey bad taken an outing in this direction. Of course the visitors were ready for any surprises, as tbey had been surfeited with them during their trips throughout Southern Cali fornia tbe past week. Aa the train passed near the foothills at Cucemonga tbe mountain tops were covered with snow, while the excursion ists preferred the shady side of the car to the warm sunshine and it seemed quite hard for tbem to understand that it could not be colder in tbe valley with the snow almost overhead and that no enow, ice and freezing weather would be experienced here as the winter months came on. The atmosphere of tbe Sen Gorgonio pass wag crisp and delicious as cham paigne and enjoyed by everybody. The transition was startling from orange groves and orchards of delicious fruits whose leaves have just begnn to turn, up to the Bummit, 2580 feet above the sea level, and then to a plunge down the desolate side of mountains into the desert and down, down, until iv a quick run of the train—for it wae running wild with orders to go—until the train stopped at Indio station, 50 feet below eea level. A whiff of the desert air as the passen gers stood under the wide-spreading palms waa inspiiation itself; "pare,dry tempered climate, made to order," to quote the words of one of this city's solid men, who is not given to gnsbing. Bo it was voted, without compromise or a night session. "How old are these palms?" was the question that was asked by excursionists of every one, not satisfied with tbe response of the tank man, wbo said he planted them 11 years ago the 10th of laat month. And such palms! But tbis is the native home of the California palm. Here the railroad company has sunk a well 600 feet deep to secure a flowing stream tbat would measure about 15 miners' inches. Tbis well is utilized for furnishing water for engines and tank cars tbat run across the desert, for tbe trains at various points, for domestic use of the colony, and to irrigate the various trees the company has set ont, inclnding coffee trees imported from Guatemala, which are al! flourishing. Verily Indio ie an oasis in the desert. Private individuals noting what a little water can do have sunk o.her wells and have planted fruit trees and grape vines, all of which bave come in to bearing within the past year or two. The results bave shown this region will produce tbe whole range of decidious fruits including figs, grapes, apricots and nectarines, at least six weeks earlier thin any other section in the state. Tbe fruits shipped from here to Ban Fran cisco and Loa Angeles brought big prices last season and the demand was for more. , Besidos the artesian wells, these same parties have put down a well 06 feet deep which is provided with a 3-horse power gasoline engine that is pumping a 10 --inch head of water for irrigation. The soil is a very deep fertile sediment, once the bottom of a lake, filled with shells and strong with phosphates and mth water and muscle will yield prodigious returns. The excursion returned late in the evening much pleased with the trip and what they saw and ready in the future to testify that with irrigation tbe desert as it is, can be made to blossom as the rose. Among the delegates and members from tbe chamber of commerce were noticed Mrs. Anderson, Mr. and Mrs. Matbern, Montgomery Crandall, Dr. and Mrs. U. A. Miller, G. E. Welby, W. C. Patterson, J. C. Kays, J. B, Lanker ehim, Mr. Forman, Mr. Chanslor, Geo. Kiee, Mr. Braley, H. Jevne, Mr. Pirtle, Mr. and Mrs. Ray and Captain Soaman. The following resolutions, presented by W. C. Patterson, were adopted by the excursion at the supper station at Ontario on the return trip: Resolved, That tbe thankß of tbis party is hereby extended to the Southern Pacific railroad its debonair representa tives, Captain Henry Steere and Mr. Requa, who by their several contribu tions, consisting of transportation, land scapes, artesian water, and substantial edibles, have made tbe day interesting, instructive and memorable. Resolved, That what we saw has been a revelation of possibilities heretofore unsuspected by us as to the results which may be obtained in the 'vicinity of Indio by the union of water with the fertile soil and beautiiul sunshine.

Ethereal Wave* Which Affect tlMMKye and aha I'liolot/raphin .Mitt ». Our eye does not act by dotacjSngheat; in other words, it is not aAWftd by the whole ruiige of eUiereial quiverings, bat only by » very minute and. uppnrently insignificant portion. It wholly ignores the ether waves whose frequaiacy is com parable with that of aeuud, and for 30 or 40 octaves above this nothirg about as responds; but high ap in a>r»ngeof vi bration of the inconceivably |high pitch ef four to seven hundred milium per second—a range which extremely few accessible bodies are able to»emit, and which it requires some JtnoWledge and skill artificially to produce—to those waves the eye is acutely, srrrpassingly and most intelligently sensiti re. This little fragment of tot: il radiation is in itself trival and negligib le. Were it not for men and glowworms and a few other forms of life, hardly mny of it worlld ever occur on anch a moderate sized lump of matter as the e arth. Ex cept for an occasional volcano- or a flash of lightning, only gigantic tbdies like the sun and stars have energy 'enough, bo produce these higher flutelike ntotes, and they do it by sheer main force* and vio lence—the violence of their gravitateve energy—producing not only ifeeoe, bnt 1 every other kind of radiation ala>. Grioar worms, so far as I know, alime have learned t he secret of omitting the phryK iologically useful waves, and noxte oth/tr. Why those waves are physiologicttlh useful, •why they are what is called "light," while other kinds of radiation are "dark," are questions to be ask»d, but at present only tentatively anuw-ened. The answer must ultimately be given»by the physiologist, for the distinction be tween light and nonlight can only be stated in terms of the oye and its i>»oul iar specialized sensitiveueaa, but a.hint may be given him by the physicist. The etheral waves which affect the eye and the photographic plate-ware* of a , size not wholly incomparable wtrtb that of atoms of matter. When aypbyMcal phenomenon is concerned with the ulti mate atoms of matter, it is rejected at present to the vaguer group oij'knowl edge summarized under the head of chemistry. Sight is probably alchemical sense. In the retina may bo« complex aggregations of atoms, shaken asunder by the incident light vibrations, and rapidly built up again by the .liviiig tis sues in which they live, the ne rve endings meanwhile appreciating them in their temporarily dissociated condition—a vague speculation, not to ! be further countenanced except as a \ forking hy pothesis leading to exainina (ion of fact, but nevertheless the direction in which the thoughts of some plrysicists are tending—a direction toward] which many recently discovered experimental facta point.—Professor Lodge i n Fortnightly Review. The Turk>«h Hanurn. In a recent lecture on ''Turkey," Mr. Oscar F. Straus, ex-minitAer of the Unit ed States to that country, threw some in teresting light upon a moot interesting phase of Turkish Biife—the harem. The lecturer admitted .that his knowledge came entirely from hearsay. He had never been in one and bad never known a diplomat who had. He pronounced the institution not altogether unattractive. Turkish women are' not secluded in the harem as in a prison. They are abso lute mistresses of tllat side of the house and freo to exercise their rights indis putably. A Turkiabihushand would not dare to enter his wifets apartments when it is not her pleasuiwhat he should, and she has only to placeiner slippers outside the door to indicate isuch desire for se clusion. Iv many ways the oriental wife makes her caprices felt, and her spouse can only submit with what grace he may, like his ocoifiental brother. The right to divorce is vested with the husband, but the divorcee retires with all her property to her family and may marry again at once. And this right to hold property separately from their hus bands which Englisband American wom en havo only lately acquired has been the privitr jo of tho Turkish wife for a thousand years. A One Volume Man. A curious example of generous obsti nacy was a stout countryman who in quired for a nice book to read—"one with a story in." On several being placed before him, he examined them attentively and picked out the middle volume of a "three decker" with the re mark, "This 'ere's my sort. What's the price?" "Oh," was the reply*, "this is only the second volume. Tho story goes through three. The set is half a crown." "Hauve acrown! Well, I'll gie ye that for that one book. It's a pretty un enough." "But won't you havo the other two as well? You'd better!" "Naw! I don't like th' beginnin of a story; I can't got forrud wi' it. An I don't like th' endin; I don't knew as 'ow it's corned about. But in th' middle un I'm into t' thick of it right off. No, I'll only tak' th' middle un; it'll set me up for a month." And, cramming tho book into bis pocket he put down his half crown and disappeared with a "good night" before the other volumes could be given to him. —Chambers' Journal. The Prince Coneort'n Will. One of the morning papers, iv a some what high flown notice of the late Sir Arnold White, states that the "myste ries" connected with the will of the prince consort "were locked in his faith ful bosom." There were no "mysteries" in connection with the prince consort's will except that the queen, to whom the whole of the prince's property was be queathed, would not allow the will to be proved in the ordinary form, nor has it ever been deposited at Somerset House. —London Truth.

CAHUENGA VALLEY. THE PEOPLE THERE FORM A DE FENSIVE UNION. tt Will Be Heard from on All Mattari Affecting the luteraata or That Section—Tho OAeers aad Ita furpnaea. Tbe people of Cahuenga township held a very enthusiastic meeting et the Pass school house last Saturday evening and organised an association which will hereafter be heard from on all matters affecting the interests of tbat section. Temporary officers and committees were appointed as follows: Chairman, W. H. Carlin; secretary, Seward Cole; committee on permanent organisation, Galbraitb, W. Cole, P . T. Durfy; com mittee on roads and road improvement, Skinner of Prospect park, C. Cole of Colegrove, P. X Benedict of Cold Water, Gafford of Intlin, 0. B. Roberta of Hol lywood, Tali of Kdgrmont, I. N.

EL, Baker, E. R, Bristol, F. J.Moll, sr., Henry Clam • en, Some ratber plain language was in dulged in regarding the disgraceful con dition ot the public highways and tbe conduct of offio'ali having charge oi the same. It was di leimined lo secure tho co-operati .n ol the people residing in the northwestern portion of Los Angeles city, whore interests are in a great measure common with those of Cahuenga, in having Temple street an 1 , its westerly connections graded and put in decent order for the enormous traffic carried on over tha thoroughfare. The matter of grading down or tun neling Hunker II II at either Temple, First, Second or Third street was also touched upon. The people of Cahuenga have been waiting for many years for action in that respect, aud deplore tbe narrownoes of those most directly inter ested in such improvements, whose in action or senseless opposition is rapidly forcing the business center of Los An geles toward a broader portion of tbe city. Had Temple-street bill been cot down three, or even five years ago a difference of millions of dollars wonld have been made in the value of property along tbat thoroughfare, and in what is now becoming known as the "upper part of town" i. c., the region ou Spring and Main and other streets north of Second. Ac things are .now, probably Third etrest is tbe most available one to cut through the bill; but If it be not done right soon it need never be done, as Seventh street will have become the thoroughfare to the west and north-weet, with all tbat that implies. Probably the Cahuenga people see this matter in a clearer light than do many property holders in the city. They and their poor horses too well know what It means to climb Temple-street bill with heavy loads of produce; whereas, most of the residents upon and west of the bill, by means ojl cable or electric ear, find the climb an easy one. , No one appreciates more than do the Cahuenga people the natural attractive ness of the great northwestern portion of the city, and no one deplores more than tbey to see it almost retrograding, while other and less desirable portions of the city are rapidly advancing in prosperity. It is not alone the property owners west of the hill who are inter ested in a cut or tnnnel. All property owners in the business portion of Los Angeles north of Sixth street are vir tually interested, did they but know it. In tbis connection it is greatly to be re fretted tbat Firsi street between Main and Loa Angeles was not widened, as there is not one wide street leading east from Main street, between San Fer nando street on tbe north and Seventh Btreet on tbe sonth. The few streets opening east from Main, along that stretch of nearly two miles, are hardly more than alleyways. And yet tome Main street property owners Wonder why so much business is moving to tbe west and southwest! Many people have an idea tbat the taking of a few feet from one edge of a piece of property— at in widening a street or road—ia a tremen dous "damage." Others there are, and they're the ones tbat move the world, who had rather bave a lot only 50 feet deep on a street like Broadway in New York (or Broadway in Lot Angelet for that matter) than a thousand lots 1000 feet deep on a back alley in Wayback. Your reporter does not attert tbat all these matters were discussed at the meeting last Saturday night, bnt it is fair to assume that they were at I- ait thought of by some of those present. Another meeting will be held at tne pass echool house Saturday, November 4th, at 7:30 p. m., when reports of com mittees will be received and the organi zation perfected. Frenchwomen In Trousers. For the privilege of wearing tronser.s the French government charges women a tax of from $10 to $12 a year. This by no means gives every woman who is willing to pay the tax a right to wear trousers. The government instead con fers the right as a tribute to great merit. Trousers aro, iv fact, a sort est decoration given to women aa the ribbon of the Legion of Honor is given to mea.
