Monterey, Va., Friday, Oct. 80, 10( Southern California, As a Higi land Boy Sees lt \ For "ye" Editor, as well as a many Virginia friends. I take plen ure in writing ft word as regan Southern California, (where Ia now located). Southern California as regard< by many, is a choice section of tl) great country. A little world < itself. The scenery is varied/Thei are long stretches of yalleys an foothills, and higher up in tl mountain ranges and pine chi summits, snow lingers until late i spring. One may find a remarkable var ely of climate here within two t three hours journey. On the com it is quite cool in summer, wit occasional fogs at night. Fartlu inland it becomes much warme There is a climate here to snit ever one. There is no summer and wii ter in Los Angeles county?tin are represented by a wet and dr season. I am told that the rain season is by far the most pleasai time of tiie year. Three or foi days of rainfall are followed l?v i many weeks of sunny skies. Thei is no depressing heat such as known in the East. The climai is exhilarating, as the nights ai always cool, and naturally one bleep is yery refreshing. Sui strokes and heat sickness are abs* lutely unknown here. Los Angeles U the chief eily ( Sjuthern California, and great a tractions are offered by the city t tourists and health seekers. > Tl city has made rapid progress in tl: last ten or twelve years. There are about three hu nd? miles of graded and graveled street about thirty of paved streets; nearl four hundred miles of cement an asphalt sidewalk, and two bandit miles of sewer. A complete se\v< system including outfall sewer I the ocean. It is one of the be lighted cities in the Union. Mot of the electric lights are on hig masts, and when viewed from su rounding mountains at night, pr sents a beautiful appearance. Tl city also has one of the most cou plete railway systems. In additic to local electric lines of two hui dred miles, single track, there ai suburban lines from Los Angele to Long Beach, Redondo, Saut Monica, San Pedro, Altadena, Pa adena, Monrovia, Alhambra^ M Lowe, and many other suburba places within from ten to twent miles from Los Angeles. This cit lies about half way between til Sierra Mad re Mts. "and ocean, an is about thrre hundred feet abov sea leyel. Lo^ Angeles river run through the city from north t south, seemingly a small strean and just beyond this river is tli section known as "Boyle Heights, a high table land. There are a dozen public park within the city limits. One, Ely pian Park consists of five bundie acres; another. Griffith Park, a trac of three thousand acres, lie* abou one mile north of the city limits The beauty of some of these p.irk it is impossible to describe, lier you will find the most choice oma mental trees and shrubs, palms a every description from South Amer ica, Africa and from the islands o the Pacific, as well as the native of California. A great many vari eties of Eucalypti, Camphor tree Oleanders. Cedars, Laurels, Magna lias, Rubber trees, and great wav ing Bananas, and > favorite yariet is the Pepper, growing to grea size. There are many places of interes in and around Los Angeles as Ml Lowe, C100 feet altitude, and on hour's ride from this city, over on of the most wonderful mountaii railways in the world. From Alta dena we ride up the mountain t< an elevation cf five thousand fee in open electric cars through tin canons of the Sierra Madre moun? tains. Truly a wonderful trip. The places which interest thc tourists are as follows* Pasadena Ostrich Farm, a grow? ing industry of Southern California has two 'hundred birds of all sizes; San Gabriel Mission founded Sept, #. 1771 still in a remarkable state of preservation. This building we read of in "Kamona;" San Fernan? do Mission, founded in J7^7; San .Juan Capistrano, founded in 1770; Cimuloa, home of "Bamoua; Chamber of Commerce exhibit? the largest display of products in the world; City Hall and Public Library; County Court House, built of red sandstones an<J granite, Coating 1900,000; La Gabriella; County Farm; Chinatown} Church of our Lady of the Angels; HolJ#n beck Home far the aged; Soldiers Home, Womens Christian Temper? ance Union; Young Womens Chris? tian Association; Young Men's Christian Association; Angels Flight; Whittiei State School; Mt.

Brighton Beach, Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan, and Play a del Rev. Lo6 Angeles is favored in the way of amusements, there being many handsome theaters which at? tract the best dramatic talent; also quite a number of halls where en tertainments are given. There are many lectures, fruit and flower shows. /The church facilities of Los An? geles are especially good. All the leading denominations being repre? sent edy Al) the fraternal secieties are represented with large mem? bership. The chief attraction of this city jl| lies in its beautiful homes, and sur? roundings. Picture at Christmas time great banks of Calla Lilies, geranium bushes which grow tfn feet and more in height, while the air is laden with the fragrance of the jasmine, orange and tuberose. At anotler time I shall be glad to write you more in detail. ? Yours truly,.

It is 60 constructed that the same rifle uses the fellowing caitridges: .32 short and long rim fire, .32 short and long center fire, and is the only repeater made using rim fire car? tridges larger than the .22 calibre. The short cartridges are just the thing for small game while the long ones kill hogs and beef handily. On the first 2000 cartridges used you have saved the cost of a Marlin.

It is a scientific fact that all cases of Heart disease, not organic, are not only traceable to, but are the direct result of indi? gestion. All food taken into the stomach ?/hich fails of perfect digestion ferments and swells the stomach, puffing it up against tho heart. This interferes with the action of the heart, and in the course of time thal delicate but vital organ becomes diseased. Mr. D. Kauble. of Nevada.

Every drop of blood in the body passes through and is filtered by healthy kidneys every three minutes. Sound kidneys strain out the impurities from the blood, diseased kidneys do not, hence you are sick. FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE makes the kidneys well so they will eliminate the poisons from the blood. It removes the cause of the many diseases resulting frpm disordered kidneys which have allowed your whole system to become poisoned. Rheumatism, Bad Blood, Gout, Gravel, Dropsy, Inflammation of the Bladder, Diabetes and Bright's Disease, and many others, are all due to disordered Kidneys. A simple test for Kidney disease is to set aside your urine in a bottle or glass for twenty-four hours. If there is a sediment or a cloudy appearance, it indicates that your kidneys are diseased, and unless something is done they become more and more affected until Bright's D^ease or Diabetes develops. FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE is the only preparation which will positively cure all forms of Kidney and gladder troubles, and cure you permanently, It is a safe remedy and certain in results. Iff You are a sufferer, take FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE ct once, lt will make you well. Soots Pronounced Incurable jMr. G. A. StHIson. a merchant of Tampico, 111., writes: "FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE is meet'ng with wonderful success. It has cured some cases here that physicians pronounced incurable. I myself am able to testify to its merits. My face today is a living picture of health and FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE has made it such." Had Lumbago and Kidney Trouble Edward Huss, a well known business man of Salisbury,Mo., writes: "J wish to say for the benefit of others, that I was a sufferer from lumbago and kidney trouble, and all the remedies I took gave me no relief.
