LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MAGAZINE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA The Luck of Summer Board AN experienced "summer boarder" has been relating some of her ad ventures in Putnam's Magazine. One season she stayed at a farm house which was quite homelike—"so home like, in fact, that the daughter of the house didn't scruple to do just as Bhe would have done when alone. She had no musical talent, but she practiced five hours daily. I made no complaint and left In the odor of sanctity, trail ing a good reputation behind me." The next incident was as follows: Another farm I found, where the peo ple were all kindness, and wanted only one family at a time, they said; where mosquitoes were unknown, but poison ivy is plenty. With experienced eye I noted the old-fashioned piano in the wide hall and was more than pleased to find that no one played It. After a few weeks' bliss I saw, one day, a bedroom being prepared for oc- But here in haunts of fronded fern No scarlet leaves or sumachs burn, No hoar frosts blight or splinter; And Summer roams his old domain And greets adown the world again The southward flying Winter. cupation. My heart sank and fell right down when I heard that two new boarders were to arrive the next morn- Ing. Two ladles came, "boarders—or bore ders?" I mused, looking them over and through and through. In the morning after breakfast, my chair—mine by right of three weeks' occupation—had been dragged to the other end of the piazza and was now a fancy work emporium; while shortly after a noise as of a thousand tin ket tles and cats burst on my ear. The old piano, that venerable heirloom—l for get to say that the house was 140 years —had been awakened and in company with the voice of the young lady, who had no voice, was shrieking out ragtime and all the current hor rors. Saturday night brought a "popper" and a "young feller," evidently the af flanced "feller" of the disturber of the peace. The camel had got his head In the tent. Sunday morning they appropriated most of the piazza. "Popper's" cigars and "mommer's" perfume pervaded the air, the "young feller" reclined In the hammock, and the "disturber" fed him with candy while she balanced herself on the edge. Perhaps I am a disagreeable, crusty, unsociable creature, but I did not join the family party, although I had known the whole of them for three whole days.
