THEY WERE TENDERFEET
AND DIDN'T KNOW BEANS
On taking my seat in a car at Santa
Paula, in tbe heart of the Santa Clara val
ley, Col. ono morning in late summer, on
a business errand to the county seat, I
took no special notico of my fellow pas
sengers. Hut, as the train Hew down tlie
avenue through the big orange and lemon
groves, past apricoc and walnut orchards,
I soon learned from comments made by
two gentlemen in the seat behind me, that
they were "tendcrteet," and very tender
at that. Gating listlessly across the val- '
ley whose beautiful scenery never grows
Old, to the shifting lights and shadows in
the purple mountains and the chameleon
like changes of color on the foothills, my
attention was arrested ny a conversation
in tho rear, heard above the rattle of tho
wheels.
"What is tbatcrop growingout there?"
asked ono.
"It is not potatoes?" responded tho
other, questioningly.
"No, nor peanuts."
"Why! it looks like beans." said the
first speaker, with tho tone of a dicoverer
in his voice; but he continued, doubting- |
ly: "It can't be beans; whore would!
they get poles?"
At this I turned apologetically, and ex
plained that being a resilient of the val-
ley and an enthusiastic Californlnn, I felt
interested in tiieir obtaining correct in
formation of tbo country, and added,
smiling at tho mental vision of 31,000
acres of bean poles: "Tne plants you see
growing in tho fields are Deans, but tbey
aro nover poled."
At onco thoir fares became animated
interrogation points, and questions came
thick and fast.
This is the story they hoard:
Ventura, Santa Barbara nnd Son Luis
Obispo counties comprise tbo bean-grow
ing section of California,the largest in the
United States.
Tho lirst named loads in acreage, its
annual shipments east amounting' to
about ono million dollars. In tho Santa
Clara valley, Ventura county,[the area
covered is twenty-six thousand'acres.
The I.as I'oaas valley, opening into it,
which rive years ago was a sheep range
ami vast barley held. »s now planted to
beans, corn aud fruit. Land that was
formerly considered to bo adapted to
barley alone, is now devoted entirely to
bean "culture.
The lirst experiments with tbis crop be.
gan in 1870, with tbo planting of small
whites,'' oy Mr. Chaffes, an early settlor
of Ventura, a.id in 1870 the first venture
with liimas was made. Though the famed
pagoda exhibited at the world's fair from
Ventura county, contained ono hundred
and twenty-live different species, the va
rieties grown for maikct are mainly Li
ma., Lady Washington, Pint Eyes and
liayes, a little brown bean. Linias are
the staple crop. They yield as high as
two thousand pounds to tho aero and
commai.d tho highest price.
They grow with the least moisture nnd
or this reason are preferred for planting
in young fruit orchards until the trees
come into bearing. The fruit grower who
selects to plant walnuts or olives, which
1 re slow to bear, secures a good income
from beans until the orchard begins to
pay. It is said tbat tbe expense of clean
ing a Held from ojrn stalks is almost
equal to harvesting a crop of Linias.
Fifteen hundred pounds to the acre is a
fair yield, but it would require forty-five
centals of corn to the acre to be its equiv
alent in profit and land that would pro
duce that amount of corn woald probably
raise ono ton of beans. The method of
culture, liae other branches of farming
in Ssuthern California, is governed ny
the pceuliar climatic conditions that ob
tain here. As soon as possible after the
first winter rams, big gang plows drawn
by six and eight horses are started in the
field. Opinions differ concerning tbo
depth of plowing necessary to produce
ftood crops, varying from two to six
inches according to locality.
Tho ground is then thoroughly and
persistently oultivntod until planting
time, about the first of May. Not a weed
is allowed to thrust its head into tbe
air. nor could a garden rake scarce Und
a clod In the linely pulverized soil. The
Tiurpoje of this careful cultivation is
(wo-fold. It not only kills out tno weeds
which would absorb tbo water, but it
also forms a fine, dry covering for the
aurfnee and thus stores tho precious
moiiture for tbo plant during the long
rainless summer. It is diflicult for the
easterner to understand, when loikiiig at
the green acres stretching across these
lovely valleys in the heat of midsummer,
that though there has been nt rain for
months, no irrigaton is used ami none
is necessary. The only thing resembling
it is the fog that rolls" in from the sea
along the mountain tops at sunset, in
great billows of fleecy mist, and lifts in
the morning. Hooting upward to tho blue
sky in soft, white clouds, leaving vege
tation as fresh and clean as a summer
•bower. This explains why beans In
Southern California aro grown without
poles. The surface of tne ground being
ury and warm, the vine wanders over it
at ita own sweet will, inourring, no

danger in rotting the pods, as they
would where rains prevail.
The weeds having been exterminated,
cultivation is not necessary after tbe
crop is in and tne soil being doep and
rich, as fertile eighty feet below the sur
face as on tap, the plant receives ample
nourishment through root and leaf, and
thrusting its tendrils out to the sun,
bears its abundant fruitage safely through
to maturity Should the winter rains
oo less than ton inches.which rarely hap
pens, the bean grower does not waste
timo and money putting in a crop, un
less he is provided with facilities for irri
gation. With that amount ho teels hope
ful of a light yield, and the nearer it ap
proaches twenty innhes tbe more he is
assured of a bountiful harvest. If the
rainfall is excessive be groans und grum
bles at Joplter I'luvius. for tho weeds
thrust tbeir saocy heads out and grow
in defiance of the plow. Indeed, he can
almost, see and hear them grow in the
mild, moist weather, with mud too deep
to venture in. J
In August nod and plant begin to turn
yellow and ripen rapidly until Septem
ber, when the stalk is cut from the root
with a smnll machine drawn ny horses,
Witb wooden hay forks they are then
piled in low heaps to dry for threshing.
Should a hot.aorth wind blow down from
tbe desert it is welcomed, tbe only time

ing and causes them to shell moro easily.
It must not be hot enough to burst the
pods, nor strong enough to scatter the

stacks, but tempered just right to suit
eaon grower's needs.
In tbe early days of bean culture the
stalk was pulled out by the roots, but
tbis required hard labor and resulted in
a dirty crop. Yankee ingenuity event
ually rose to the occasion in tbe inven
tion of tbe neat little cutter.
The thresher Is a ponderous machine,
operated by steam. After threshing they
are pot through a clearer from which
they come smooth and sotin-liko and are
run into "gunny" sacks ready for mark
et. A bear, cleaner has recently been
patented by two gentlemen in Ventura
tnat cleatiß a thousand sacks, which
means that many centals, a day. At har
vest time the clouds aro watched with
anxious foreboding, and should there be
the least indication of rain, work is hast
enea with all possible speed, for rain to
any great amount means rnin. The
effect of water in swelling beans is well
known and that they dry with a wrink
led skin, that manes them looked shriv
oied. This greatly depredates the market
value. Heavy fogs in lata summer are
also undesirable, causing tho plants to
make a second growth and send out blos
soms that will not mature.
It for any reason tbe rancher docs not
choose to wait for the thresher,, he marks
out a large circle or "bean floor" in the
field, makes it hard and firm, puts on tbe
stalks, drives in horses and trends them
out, as wheat was threshed in old Kgvpt
when timo was young. Tbe pods or bean
straw, as it is called, makes nutritious
food for horses and milch cows, and is
carefully preserved. A bean field after
tbe crop is token off is left perfectly
clean, ready for tbo plow and winter
rains.
It gives the traveler a keen realization
of the meaning of the words "land ot
plenty" to see teams of from eight to
fourteen borses pull heavily loaded
freight wagons to overllowiug ware
houses, whore the sacks an- stored for
railroad or steamer shipment. Tbey may
be seen coning from every direction over
tin- valley. The old-fashioned custom of
using India on tbe horses is still fol
lowed, and tbe musical jingle of an ap
proaching wagon train may bo heard a
long distance, creeping down a mountain
grade or winding through the valley. At
the warehouse lines of wagons are wait
ing to unload, and as each must come

CUTTING THE BEAN VINES BY SLED KNIVES.
It may be asked, when there is such a
length of coast lino in .Southern Califor
nia, with apparently the same conditions
why is bean-growing restricted to a
limited section. 'I'bts is one of the per
petual problems tbat confronts tbo Cali
fornia]! in the cultivation of all crops. Ono
that in the solving bal cost ruueli in time,
labor and money. Certain portions are
adapted to special things, owing to the
peculiar climatic conditions and incon
sistencies. Northern California is too
cool for bean culture, yet its fruits ma
ture and ripen several weeks earlier than
those of the south.
San Diego county and the Santa Ana
valley grow tine fiults ami the samo va
rieties produced in Ventura, but for some
reason not yet understood worms in the
pod invariably destroy tbo bean Dcfore it
ripens.
This happened to a very limited extent
in the Santa Clara valley,after an unusu
ally dry winter followed by a warm sum
mer. And yet tho residents of each local
ity insist that they have the coolest and
most delightful climate. This fact puts
to flight fears of over-production ;"and

Each season has its special charm in

The simple gift you scorn to prizo
Feigning proud looks so worldly wise.

A Chinese Divorce
The American humorist should be glad
to learn that loquacity is recognized in
China as a ground lot- the divorce of a
wife. Opportunity for many jokes is
presented by tbis fact. Other causes aro
neglect of fier lord and master's family,
jealousy, childlessness and curiosity. Tiio
young Chinese girl seems born to be
ruled half her life and to rule tho other
half unless fate gives her a too long-lived
mother-in-law. Iv her home she is sub
servient to mother, father and brothers,
working for them nil and looking for no
reward in tbe way of trips to Europe,
diamond lings or saddle horses. At
twelve or thirteen she marries. She is
then tho slave of her mother-in-law
and her term of servitude under this awe-
Insplrjng person's rule is apt to bo even
moro wearisome than her childhood's
.slavery.
Finally the mol ber-in-law dies, as they
sometimes do even in China, and her
successor, who is littio Mrs. Sun flower
herself, at onco begins her regime of
authority, rearing her daughters to be
submissive and her sons to be spirited
and rilled with a healthy contempt for
womankind. And then when ono of
these manly individuals brings home a
wife her victory is complete, and she
bullies and tyrannizes over her to her
heart's content aim if she be malicious
and tbe record of a sad girlhood to avenge
the spirited son's wife is apt to havo a
sad time of it.
Simple Lingerie
I have had the opportunity of examin
ing a great many imperial and royal
trousseaux, said a woman of unusual so
cial position lately, nnd can say that
they are mostly composed of articles tbe
toxturo of whion is extremely lino and
costly, but absolutely devoid of any
showy ornaments—nay, in many cases
even of lace or embroidery. Fine batiste,
hem-stitched by hand, with a dainty
worked monogram, ornamented bf a
crown, for day wear, and equally line
batiste or silk mull, chastely trimmed
with Valenciennes lace, for night robes,
peignoirs and dressing sacqQes, is tbe
usual fashion in the bona lido "grand
momlo.''
Home time ago the empress of Russia—
who is one of tbe arbiters of fashion in
Europe—inaugurated a new kind of ling
erie which created quite a furore, per
haps because, in spito of its apparent
simplicity, it is exceedingly expensive.
It is made of the sheerest of nettle batiste
and is buttonholed with puro gold
thread, which washes without tarnish
ing. Tho effect produced is by no means
showy and an untutored eye would not
dream what the cost of such underwear
really is.
Autumn Sprits

tounded at the Glories
Unveiled
Within a couple of weeks one of the
grandest house-warmings Hint New York
city has ever seen will take plsce, when
tbe new Astor [palace, on Upper Fifth
avenue, is formally taken possession of
by the family—or families, for it is prac
tically two bouses, ono of which wwll bo
occupied by Mrs. William Astor, and tho
other by Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Astor,
her son and danghter-inlaw.
It is not as imposing as the vast struc
ture wnich Cornelius Vanderbilt culls
his town house, but, aside from this,
thero is no other house in tbe city which
compares with tho Astor palace. Society
folks are very anxious to see the interior,
as the work of building and decorating
the palace bas been carried on with strict
secn:t;y, and very little is known cf the
A Panel in the Hall
house tvhioh is destined to he the renter
nf many festivities, just as tho old house
at the corner of twenty-fourth street
and Fifth avenno was tiio pivot around
which the rest of tho social world re
volved.
On October Ut the palace was turned
over by the architects ana decorators to
th owners, and since then tbo work of
furnishing hns been pushed along steadi
ly. It would be supposed that the beauti
ful belongings of the old bouse would Oo
for the new, but very littio of them will
be seen wben the palace is thrown open
to the friends of the family. The won
derful decorationß of the new house
make it necessary to have furnishings of
an entirely different character t though,
of course, the priceless paintings, tapes
tries, rugs and stationary which gave
the Thirtieth street home .so much fume,
can never be out «f place and will be
given ilue prumiritnce in tne new house.
As tho embargo has been lifted from
tbe tongues of the men engaged jn con
struction tbe palace, it is now possible to
(rive a faithful description of the inter
ior. Archilcoturaly, it is of the modern
style of renaissance. It looks very much
like a small Tuilleries, mansard roof und
all, but is more elaborately decorated
than tho palace of Catherine tie Medici,
which was burned by the commune.
Tbis elaboration of detail is carried
into tho ornamentation of tho house
proper. Sonic of the rooms aro so pro
fusely ornamented as to sesm almost
heavy.
Mrs. William Astor's house is the
northern one. That occupied by John
Jacob Astor is the southern one, on the
coiner of Sixt,-fifth street. Ultimately
at Mrs.William Astor's ddath, the houses
will be thrown into one. As it is some
of the rooms arc equally divided. This
is the case with the ball room, which oc
cupies the center of the house at the
rear. Otherwise Mrs. Astor bas suites of
apartments which ure almost precisely
of the same size as those the younger
couple occupy in ths southern end.
STATUS OF IRENE IN THR HALL
I g Tho grand central hall is 04x55 leet in
si/.e. Through tlie center run l ; a parti
tion, on each side oi which there is a
grand staircase leading to the second
story. This staircase and iv fact the on -
tire finishing of the hall, is built of Caen
Btonc, a beautiful material of a creamy
tint, brought from Caen, France, whicn
has been u.-ed in nearly every one of
the recently built houses of American
millionaires.
I!oth staircase and hull are beauti'ully
decorated with artistic carvings and with
full-sized female figures in half length,
modelled from life by Carl Bitter. Their
grateful lines show to excellent advan
tage in the spacious ball* Opeu'ng from
tho hall aro doors leading to tho recep
tion rooms, salons or drawing room and
dining rooms of hoth ttie north and south
houses. At the rear other doors lead to
the picture gallory from both houses.
The picture gall dry promises to rank as
the finest single apartment in the coun
try. On festive occasions it will be used
as a ball room, and all the science of tho
architect's art was bronchi into play to
make the combination of picture ga'lerv
and ball roonra success. It is 50x60 feet
in size and in tbe daytime the sunlight
stroams in through a great stained glass
dome forty feet above the floor. The im
mensd height of the ceiling gives the
apartment a dignity which is lacking in
the rooms ol oilier line Now York bouses*
Here, as in tho erand hall, the com
manding genius and exquisite taste of
Carl Hitter lias been called upon in the
modelling of figure pieces. Perhaps the
most noticeable pieces of figure work
which adorn tins apartment ere eight
caryatides of heroic slse, modelled direct
from SandOW, the strong mnu.
These figures stanJ upon the cornioo
twenty feet from tho floor and support
tne rotunda. No two figures are alike,
but all are in stooping posture, as tf act
ually bearing a great weight, t-auilitw's
massive figure, with its swelling muscles
and tendons, has lent itself admirably to
the purpose, and there is no doubt that
these caryatides will long be consideied
among tbe most striking decorative lig
ures in tha world.
Bui ttiese are not the only figure deco
rations in the gallery by any means.
Upon the western wall and between tho
entrances there aro two heroic figures,
half human, half brute, taken from some
old-time mythology. Higher up, between
the Bandow Usui as Iv tho "cove"'
which supports the rotunda, male and fe
male, half length, and full length figures,
some human and some nf fauns, flank
ovoid panels. Over each panel is a head,
and each is inscribed with some name fa
mous in tbe history of art. Theso in their
order, beginning at the southwest comer
of the gallery, are: Andrea del Bar to,
Bern brand t, Michael Angelo, A . Correg
gio, Murlllo, Velasquet, Leonardo da
Vinci. Paulo Veronese and Baiteli* Banito*
Upon tho eastern wall thero are other
beautiful figures near the top. and below
them a round panel for a painting, which
is flanked by graceful figures of heruie
size. At night the Illumination will he
furnished by nnndrcds of electric light
bulbs arranged around t»o upper cornice
of the "cove," just under tbe rotunda.
Hume idea of tho amount of interior
carving can be gained from tho fact that
forty carvers 200 cutters, 10C polishers
and seventy-live helpers were employed
in tbo houso continually for ten months.
The house was begun iv the easly part of
1893 ami has taken more than two years
and a half to build. It has given employ
ment on an average to 800 men since "it
was begun. In wages alone $800,000 have
been spent. Counting t!:e cost of materi
als and tho OOSt of tbe land, the house
without the furnishings represents an
outlay of $1,500,000, and when it is filled
With the multitude of t!.o art treasures
the whole will sum up oluse to $3,000,000.
This may seem an exaggeration, but when
it is remembered that a single gold din
ner service belonging to Sirs. William
Astor cost 960,000, and a Gobelin tapestry
$12,000, it can be seen that items of this
kind soon mount into onormous Figures.
Mrs. William Astor's picture gallery
is valued at $31)0,030, nnd ia probably
worth much more than when it waa
formed. If the jewels nf the two ladies
were to lie included, three millions would
not cover it by any niearH. Four mil
lions would ba much nearer the correct
sum.
In the "south house." that of John
Jacob Astor, the upper rooms, the living
rooms, are than in Mra. Aator'a
house, for the reason that more people
must be accommodated. The library is
about the aatnc ai/e ns the elder Mrs.
Astor's,but the situation 01 thu bedrooms
Caryatid in the Ballroom
ia plesaanter, for they aro on tho corner
of sixth street.
First is Airs. Astor's bedroom, which
lias a small dressing room* It is smaller
than Mrs. Astor's, and shows thai he has
given the bust of it to his wife, for her
Bedroom OCOUnIfIS the exact corner of the
bouse, and is on**-third larger than bis.
Next to Mr, Astor's bedroom, and
fronting on Sixth street, is one ot the
prettiest apartments iv the house—Mrs.
Astor s prwnte bath room. It is Human
in design, the bath too being madn of
one solid block of marble and carved out.
The bath itself is almost round. It is
inuuded to be sat iv rather than to lie
