(Written for 1 (Continued from Last Week! le On the 5th day we pot on th^ street i ar and went out to San Redro. From c here we went to Santa Catalina Is- 0 and in a boat named Cabrilla. As ^ vc crossed the channel there could d >e seen many sea pulls flyinp around, h lartinp every now and then down a*- p ;er fish. The Lcapinp Tuna wou$ v lash into the air and other fish couf 5e seen as they would come '.id .1 :he surface. There were about an """ iozen little row boats that came up to the side of out boat, each consist- 1 inp of one or two divers. The pas- 1 senpers of our boat would thiLw ? money down in the water to see thv n A live after it and brinp it up in tl^.ir c mouths. | 1 Catalina Island is an island twen| r five miles off the coast of Los Anjje- t !es county. It is tv;enty-two miles I onp and from one-half to eipht mf._s c ivide. We were three hours pettinp f ;here. While there we went ou^ in a t rlass-bottom boat to see the subma- 2 rine pardens. This boat had a rect- J inpular shape box, made of thick mm?- s riifyinp plass, which was placed dcvyn 1 In the bottom of the boat with bench js all the way around it for passen- 1 *ers to sit on and look down at the C jottom of the ocean. There coulcD 'a seen shell-encrusted rocks, fish c arreen, pold, zipzappinp leisu 4 imonp the wavinp foliape. There \ I real trees with lonp branches WHj A f as on land by a tempest; preat ?h a af all shapes, and luxuriant foliage. \ The foliage consisted mostly of kelp, I ivhich has great clusters of fruit an it i resembling the olive, but which is jiol- t low and feels like a soft shell egg. t rhis kelp is very valuable and the fol- ( owing substances are made from it: f odine, potash, geletine and rubber, i rhere were numerous shells of various t sizes to be seen, ranging from a \ quarter of an inch to seven inches i ong. There was an expert diver on i loard who would dive down for the 1 arger ones, looking at us whiV^'he ( ivas under jthe water, in/juirltf^-I >ne we would prefer. These snells s vere sold as souvenirs at twenty-five f :ents each. s Further out from the Submarine t wardens was the Seal Rocks, the home f )f quite a number of seals. 1 We left Los Angeles at 9:30 for t ?an Diago, which is 120.4 miles from 1 .os Anpeles. After pettinp dinner t ind reservinp rooms at the U. S. r rant Hotel, we went out to the San \ Diago Exposition prounds. Archiectually the exposition was as unique c is it was in other features. The' s onventional idea of world's fair s uiildinps was abondoned and there ^ vas revived the Spanish type of build- r nps. This idea was potten because a >f the first white settlers of that I ountry which went direct there from v ?pain. It is said that Froy Serra, c i Spaniard, planted the first palm on a he west coast. A padro stretches s .vith lawn and trees and flowers, at c ?ach side a row of Spanish buildings, f iorne of the mission type, some of c he palace type, but all harmoniously Spanish. A portal opens through the c ircade which stretches from one end j *f tbfi o'rminflc tn thp ntVior nn ?>nr>Vi .. ude of the Padro. Here can be seen i luxurious growth of southern California flora. Out on the plaza of me of the buildings there were a troupe of Spanish dancing girls, lancing to the music of gui,ars and the click of castonets. We went through what could be termed a model intensive farm, where here were the poach, apricot, apple, oquat and cheerry tree growing, and loneath these trees a thousand rows >f vegetables, some northern, some temi-tropical, but all growing side by side and in a profusion which is not cnown to farms operated under old ityle methods. The .Taps are the scientists of intensive agriculture, and vere there to teach the white man low small tracts of land could be operated to greatest advantage. We ony had a short lime to spend on these grounds so we hurriedly ran through he buildings of Foreign Arts, Comnerce and Industries, Agriculture ind Horticulture, Home Economy, \rts and Crafts, Science and Eduation, and others. I was particularly mpressed with the displays in the lome Economy buildings. Upon en- c erinc the first th incr wa cnur tiroo a I V irge glass refrigerator box which u ontainerl a cow, life size, that was v lade out of butter. There were a is rent number of booths, some having h isplays of canned fruit, others em- r< roidery, etc. There were all kinds es nd species of stuffed fish and birds tl > be seen. tl In all of our travels we were treat in MT?My PACIFIC EXPOSITION [ of the World-Famed eat Mississippi River U iert Lands of New Mexico and s of California, the Great Salt italns and Canons of Colorado r B.

There was a lemonstration of cake cooking at one 100th and upon asking for a "samile" the lady refused us, saying we vere not from California or the West. Ve told her that was the difference "tweeen the Western hospitality and ".e Eastern. The next day which was the 7th of Vugust, we went back to Ltos Angeles, lad dinner and left at 5 o'clock for >an Francisco. We had breakfast at Vatsonville and from there stopped ff at Big Tree station to see the "Big Trees" which are in a grove six niles from Santa Cruz. Most of the rees were named. There was the ^reemont, in which General Freemont :aniped in 184(1. It is large enough or seventy five people to get in at he same time, having a diameter of !2 feet and a height of 280 feet. Tumbo was 50 feet in circumference, ind 90 feet high. This tree had two arge knots or it which resembled an slephant and a buffalo head. The argest single tree was called the *iant. It was 65 feet in circumference ind 306 feet high; 75 feet was broken >ff of the top, having a diameter of I feet where it was broken. The MeCinley was 40 feet around and 260 eet tall. General Grant was 55 feet iround and 300 feet tall. This tree vas said to be 4000 years old. T?io loosevelt was dedicated in 1903, durng ex-President Roosevelt's visit here. It is 46 feet in circumference ind 275 feet high. The Tree traces were 63 feet around and 285 eet high. They are 5,000 years old. Sherman consisted of 18 trees cornlined, the number of feet around all vas 110 feet, and their height beng 300 feet. Harrison was 88 feet n circumference and 285 feet high, ["here were others named: Grover Cleveland, Bryan, Y. M. C. A., etc. rhe largest of these trees were red vood. These trees were so pretty and jreen. Nothing could surpass their itableness and beauty, even though hey had been visited by the forest ires. It seemed wonderful that such arge trees as these could still stand here and put forth their soft fresh eaves, when all the lower part of heir bodies had been burned out and lothing was left but a thin outside vail. We left Big Tree station about two 'clock in the afternoon. I''or miles ifter leaving, the big trees could be icen growing along the railroad, but gradually became smaller as we leared San Francisco. We went tround Lorenzo river on what is called | lorse-shoe Bend. The mountains, vith their large boulders protruding iut over the valley, where every now md then could be seen a pretty little tream, were there to greet us on ine side, while the smooth, easy lowing river was ever with us on the ither side. We reahced San Francisco at six 'clock and went direct out to the Ex >osition grounds where we secured uuins ai me insme inn. we got sup >er at the Y. W. C. A. building, deals are served here on the Cafeteria dan. Some time we had to stand in ine nearly an hour before those in Tont of us had been served and our ,urn had come. There was a long ;able which had huge bowls on it, jach one containing soup, beans, potatoes, fish, hot rolls and other good things to eat. There was a large list if foods with their prices, hanging on the wall, so we could know exactly what we would have to pay for our Yieals before the bill was handed is. After getting everything we vanted, we then would go find us a Able and eat our meals. After eating our supper we went to ;ee the fireworks. This wonderful display of fire works, bursting up in he air and dropping down flags, oy balloons, ducks, dolls, etc., wero ired from boats out in the Bay of 3an Francisco, and afforded great imusemcnt to the thousands of j>eoplo ooking on. Powerful searchlights vere turned on in fan-like array, leavng a scries of ever-changing colored teams, playing upon the night sky. resting wonderfully beautiful effects. Vhen the search light was turned pon the Tower of Jewels the effect /as marvelous. This Tower of Jewels i 435 feet high, covered with 125,000 and-cut and polished "jewels". in ed, green, blue, yellow and white, ach hung by a tiny strip of metal lat allows the crystal to vibrate with ie slightest movement of the air. In the morning of the ninth we took | in as many of the buildings as we could. First we went in the Palace of Horticulture, which is built almost entirely of glass, and surmounted tfy a huge dome. Here could be seen thousands of plants from all parts of the world, one million bulbs were claimed to have come from Holland alone. Next we saw the wonderful dis play in the Palace of Fine Arts. This palace was built in the shape of an arc, with wings extending around a still lagoon, the mirrowed re flection of which are marvelously perfect. Then we went in the Palace of Education, from thoro PV/vl Products Palace. Upon passing from this building into the Palace of Agriculture and the Palace of Liberal Arts, we went through what is known as the Court of Palms. In these courts were found the splendid mural paintings and statuary, the work of some of the most famous living artists, and a lovely horticultural display. In the Palace of Liberal Arts, one thing that I particularly remember was a huge typewriter that was gotten out by the Underwood Typewriter Company. It was 1728 times larger than the standard machine, having a weight of 14 tons (28,000 lbs)and was 21 feet wide and 15 feet high. This machine was said to cost $100,000. It was operated by a man using a big mallet to strike the keys. In the Palace of Agriculture were to be seen "various branches of the agricultural industry. In the Forestry Division of this building" we saw a very unique and. expensive table, which we were told was on sale for $50,000. Cannot say, though whether any one was foolish enougTi to buy it. This table was formed by the hand of nature, there being only three separate parts to it. The top was formed from a tree that had been sawed off years before the owner found it in the northern ridge of the Rocky Mountains. Tho sides hau grown above the Hat surface, curving over and making a smooth, even edge. The lower part< of the table resembled a dog's body, the neck, body and four legs being of the same tree, formed by nature. The tail was a separate pjece of wood. This table was highly polished, and upon close observation one copld see faces and forms on the top of the table. There was an owl, dog, squirrel, lady and other forms which could be seen upon closer searching. The owner of this table was Marcus Weinberger, a naturalist. In the Palace of Transportation wo saw tne latest production of human ingenuity in aerial, land and water transportation. There are eleven of these exhibit palaces which stand in the center of the exposition. There was 635 acres of land which was occupied by the exposition. To the east the amusement concession district, which was spoken of as "The Zone" and covered 65 acres. At the western end of the main group was the foreign and State pavilion sites, with the live stock department, race tracks and athletic field beyond. There were 40 foreign nations and 48 states that had pavilions there. There were seen lovely gardens of Japan, with the Temple of Kin Ka Kuji, at Kioyo in the midst of it. We also saw the Sacred Temples of Siam, a typical Italian City, French buildings, Prussian buildings, and others too numerous to mention. The French display of their gorgous laces, exquisite gowns, etc., could not be surpassed, while in the French jbuilding we saw some of the very highly treasured articles that belonged to Napoleon, some of them were: an art square, chair, table, sword, letters, etc. We saw George Washing+ rvn 'r?

Vernon, and the rooms were arranged as near like ho had them as could be done. There was the great old Liberty Bell, out in the open under a little shed, being guarded both day and night. The shrubbery, grasses, and flowers were lovely and so artistically arranged. The lagoon with their gushing fountains, and wonderful statuary, were everywhere to be seen. At night when the lights were turned on nothing could have been more beautiful than to see the buildings and the gorgeous colors from the search light being reflected in them. Months could have been spent at tne reposition and each day could have been seen something new.

W. Rister, '^eache'r. Says Phosphates Make Beautiful Women and Strong, Healthy, Vigorous, Robust Men. Physicians all over the world are prescribing phosphates to build up run down down enemic conditions and those who have treated their patients with Argo-Phosphate are changing thin, enemic women with toneless tissues, flabby flesh, into the most beautiful rosy cheeked and plump round formed women imaginable. Atlanta, Ga. Dr. Jacobson said in a recent interview that 90 per cent, of enemia comes from nervous breakdown which can only be corrected by supplying the necessary phosphates to the nervous system that is lacking in the food you eat, and this can be quickly supplied by taking one or two 5grain Argo-Phosphate tablets after each meal, and at bed time. It will in many cases make a pale scrawny face the picture of health in a few days. I hve seen women that I expected would have to be kept under treatment for months restored to perfect health in one or two weeks' time. SPECIAL NOTICE. The ArgoPhosphate recommended by Dr. F. H. Jacobson contains phosphates such as are prescribed by leading physicians throughout the world, and it will be found the most effective form for treating patients with Nervous Dyspepsia, Stomach troubles, Brain Fag, and Nervous Prostration. It will renew youthful vim and vigor," and uild up the whole body. If your druggist will not supply you with ArgoPhosphate, send $1.00 for two weeks' treatment, to Argo Laboratories, 10 Forsyth St., Atlanta, Ga.
