Edgar Comstook. a resident of the VENTURA COUNTY VENTURA VENTURA, March 27.—(Regular Cor respondence.) The Lima Bean associa tion of this county Is trying hard to solve the problem of low prices that have pre vailed under the contracted currency re gime of the nation, making money dear and scarce. A number of the association are of the opinion that It is over-pro duction, and have secured promise of a decrease of £5 per cent from last year's acreage, which, they think, will Insure fair prioes. The Venturlan, a local paper, says: "There are at least 900 oar loads of old beans still on hand, aid If the proposed tariff of 1 cent a ptasd is put on beans, the Canadian supply will be shut ous, and a good market will be assured for small white beans. As we are increasing in population rap idly, overproduction of lima beans, which can only be raised in favored localities, is impossible. Give us the Nicaragua canal and abundant money and the bean question will be solved. Perhaps some of our new statesmen do not know beans. We reflect public opinion here In stat ing that everyone who Is financially able will attend the glorious La Fiesta. Thoughtful people regard it as a dis tinctive Southern California carnival of merit and splendor, growing to national Importance. As it will bring thousands of eastern visitors of wealth, many of whom will locate In this genial climate, it benefits the queenly Ltttle city by the sea, and in fact every part of Southern California.

His face shon that he was brimming over with a ruvr of weighty importance, so I gathered ndf together and prepared to listen and n0,,, thcroon, for, being an old stager, I wa.ged to the confidences of subalterns. "Fact is, I'Te, 3 n hard hit," began the dragoon, sittlng.wn on the deck. " Miss Stanton, i inquired sympathet ically, for that yeig woman, on her way to marry a plan.-, had worked havoc among the unaroprlated masculine hearts. "Miss Stanton I a .1 mean the wom an who sits next you table—the one with the beautiful eyes.' "My cabin comi,ton, Mrs. Trlnderl She is probably golti un t to join bor hus band. '' I added wariigly. "Oh, no; she's a viow. Hunt of the Fourth told me all out It. He has an uncle who has a place ise to old Trlnder's, and he—Hunt, I ruea_knew them quite well by sight. Old friler was old enough to be her father. He n\ o B pile In cotton or something of the rt and died last year." "Well, you know mor*bout her than I do.

And I proceeded to scribble aots to Hunt of the Fourth In oonslderatioof his uncle having known old Trlnder. Somehow that tea was not tjuooess, al though the oook surpassed hliielf la tea cakes, and that subtle flavoi of stewed cockroaches that pervades all ship's tea was reduced to a minimum. Hunt of the Fourth oontrlbfed many anecdotes of bis uncle, who .new old Trinder, but Mrs, Trlnder wont not be drawn Into conversation. She nswered the dragoon's prattle with monarU&bles, her eyes fixed on the misty horlso, where the mountain range of Sinai wi dimly visible. The sound of the dressing bell b>ke up the party, leaving the dragoon baled In his object, but more In love than evr.

"You 11 come ashore?" said the dragon four days later as we steamed slowly in* harbor at Aden, and a shoal of dusky u fants surrounded the ship, chanting h unison then- oboros of "have a dive,' while boatloads ot woolly headed venden of ostrich eggs, feathers and carved curia bom the Interior prepared to squeeze theli victims. I consented, for a coaling ship Is not a delectable place; but, lnspitoot all pervad ing dust, Mrs. Trlnder could not be per suaded to accompany us, and we left her surrounded by a swarm of native mer chants, who, with unerring Instinct, marked her aa an easy prey. The journey to the empty tanks was jolty and dusty as ever. Having inspected the few trees, we commenced our descent, and in so doing came across the worst tempered man. In the course of an event ful life It has boon my misfortune to for gather with many bad tempered mortals, but this one could give points to any two other men of my acquaintance and beat them, and that is saying a good deal, for there's nothing like a residence in the east for fraying out the edges of one's temper, even those of covenanted civilians. He was an ill favored, unwholesome looking individual, with puffy cheeks and watery eyes, betokening a too great affinity for the Insinuating peg. His carriage had come to grief on the road, and ho was standing among the debris apostrophising the driver and his female relations to the third generation In terms that caused my companion's Up to curl with disgust. From one or two expressions borne after us upon the breeze wo learned with sorrow that he was to be a fellow passenger to Bombay. On our return to the ship a couple of hours later I found Mrs. Trinder sitting In her cabin among her purchases, wearing a very frightened expression. She was a timid little thing and about as fit to knock about the world alone as an unfledged canary, having evidently been kept In a bandbox nil her life. "They've put a madman next door," she began in a low voice. "He's dreadfully violent. Listen!" A string of Hlndoostanee invectives, mingled with blows falling on some dull substance, and exclamations of " Sahib I Sahib I reached our cars through the open grating that headed the partition walls of the two cabins, and I recognized the ac cents of the worst tempered man. "It's only temper," I said reassuringly. "You'll get used to that sort of thing. He's beating his servant, but you may be suro the 'boy' is well paid or he wouldn't stand It If the man swears too loudly, I'll speak to the captain." "Beating his servant I How dreadful I Let us go up on deck." Outside we came upon the white robed "boy" rubbing his shoulders, with a smile of satisfaction on his face. "Sticks?" I inquired sympathetically. Tho "boy" grinned. "Sahib make plenty bobbery," he replied. That night, leaning over the prow of the vessel, watching the glimmering, fantostio lights in tho phosphorescent waters, Mrs. Trlnder waxed confidential, and I learned tho reason of her journey. She was unused to traveling, having never been 60 miles from her home before. Ten years ago she had loved and been loved, but the loved one was ineligible, and her parents, fully alive to the advantage of wool, had per tnadedher teaanj, old Trlnder.

They had always been faithful, though they had not corresponded—that would have been wrong—but she had fre quent news ot him from a mutual friend. That he still oared for her seemed certain, for he had never married, although he had attained a good position. There was something touching in her simplicity, and I felt a greater interest than heretofore In the little woman and a degree of respect in her childlike fidelity. "You have written to say you are com ing?" I Inquired. "Oh, nol I oould not do that It would seem like asking him to marry me. But I kaow he is In Bombay. I shall see him, ] and then"— She broke off with a happy smile; then, after a smile, eontlnuedi "You must have thought me stupid and unsociable, but every moment of the day I am thinking about our meeting and look ing forward to It.

There was a goodly number, the price of many beat lnga. t j 'Bo we are reauy wiere •« uw, u»g»u Mrs. Trinder. Then the suddenly stopped and stared at something In front of her. Following the direction of her eyes, I en oonntered a portmanteau and read the in scription In white letters, "Fentham B. Davenant." Then I understood. At that Instant the worst tempered man appeared. He looked at Mrs Trlnder, and for tho first time their eyes met "Is it possible?" be began. Mrs. Trinder bowed. "You have a time tebls," I Interrupted quickly. "Kindly tell me what time the evening train starts for Poonah " Before he had answered my question Mrs. Trlnder was half way down the com panion, and when I went Into the cabin a few minutes later she was sitting, forlorn, on her cabin box, the picture of disappoint ed hops*. The blow had been a hard ona "Everything seems to have come to an end," she said mournfully. "I don't know what to do or where to go." "But I da You will oome with me to Poonah and stay till you have decided on jour future. v Then I returned to the deck, where I found the dragoon standing by my gun ease, his face gloomy and clouded. "My leave lent up for a week yet," he remarked, "so I'm going up country for a big shoot" '•Yon wont do anything of the sort Mis. Trinder Is coming to stay with me." " And her friend too?''

One worn •n who was nursed but not crushed by a sleeping car Journey from California to New York has found her voice and spoken. There Is plenty to be spoken about. Ask any woman of your acquaintance what she thinks of sleeping cars In general and of the woman's end of a sleeping oar In par ticular, and you will be able to give your vocal organs a protracted rest while she tells you. That Is what the reporter did. "Do I like torldoln a sleeping oar?" repeated a woman from Chicago who Is doing a week's shopping In New York. "Do I like to ride in a sleeping oar?" this time with the accent on the "do. " "That was whot I asked," the reports* murmured apologetically. "Oh, well, then, what's the use? I'll Just get all wrought up, and It won't ds any good." "Couldn't you tell me without getting wrought up?" suggested the reporter. "No, I oan'tl Why, for years we women have been ground under the Iron heel of the oppressor, and you expect me to tell you about it calmly and Joyously, as if I likod It Maybe I oould becalm if I hadnt Just been through the mill, so to speak, and If I didn't have tho prospect of going through It again day after tomorrow."

"Wrought up, did I say? Come here!" And tho Chicago woman cornered the re porter on a sofa. "What right have you men to a large and dry apartment at on* end of the car, washbasins galore, an 11 --limltabls expanse of mirror and the right of entry without breaking the door inf What right have you, I say, to all that when we women have a 8 by 8 box at the other end of the car, with one washbasin, no elbow room In which to brush our hair and somebody else already in there, with tho door locked behind them. Some of the toilet rooms do not have this latter objec tion. The builders have evidently beard rumors of sclilsh women who take their time to their morning toilet, protected by bolts and bars They have said in tholr Idiotic brains: " 'We'll fix that!'

"The first thing I do and the first thing ilmost every woman does when she gets into a sleeper for an ovorntght journey is to count the number of women and chil dren in tho oar, for, of course, the chil dren are booked for the women's toilet box In the morning. I shall never forget," and there was a dreamy smile on the wom an's face, "an overland journey I once made from Chicago to San Francisco.
