.H. Cold Brook, or Dawson's C«mp. After thoroughly canvnssing that all-important question, how arid where we should spend the "Glorious Fourth" we decided on the San Gabriel Canyon and, if possible, to reach Cold Brook Camp, a distance of twenty miles from AJ.USB. Not having a suitable, spring wagon for two horses, we decided to try it, with our single rigs with tho understanding that of we found the roads not suited for our rigs, or the rijjs not suited for the roads, wo would return home that night. So about, 9a.m., with a good liberal lunch and grain for the horses, we started on our journey. Arriving at the San Gabriel river we found the river bed, but the river had gone a glimmering, or somewhere else, so ou we pushed, and ore long we found streams with water in them. About one p. ni., noh having found any roads that were any better- adapted to two horses than one, we halted, fed our horses and tasted the quality of the contents of the lunch basket, for which by this time we were fully prepared. This done we decided to go on to Cold Brook. We soon reached Camp Kincon, with its hotel, dancing pavilion and other buildings, nestled under the shade of the trees, but as we still bad eight miles with a rise of 1500 feet before ns, we did not stop to investigate the beauties of the place. Prom there on, although the ascent was steep, wo found good roads, better even than some 'of the roads within a radius of five miles of Covina. Arriving nt the camp about 5 p. m. we inquired for the proprietor, Mr. R. W. Daweon (who, by the way, is evidently not n stranger to many people in and about, Coviua, as he owns a fine orange grove some two and a half miles north of Col. Chapman's) nnd were informed that ho was coming up on the stage, which had not yet arrived. Others, however, looked after our welfare and we soon wore very nicely located. This done, we spent a few moments taking in the situation, and it certainly is one of tho most beautiful spots I ever saw. Nestled under the fir and alder- trees is the hotel, with two streams, forming the north fork of the Snn Gabriel river, coming down on , either side and meeting in front of the hotel, the tents located, not with any particular set system, but wherever there is a cosy spot, with rustic bridges to reach them; the mountains towering upon three sides, the rippling waters as they go singing down over the rooks; surely it is a spot full of grandeur and a feast for a lover of the beauties of nature. Just beyond the hotel is the foot ,of a good trail leading to Crystal Lake, a distance of three miles, and on to Pine Flats. Just here let me give tho elevation of a few points: Camp Eiucori, 2000 feet; Cold Brook, 3500 feet; Crystal Lake, 5500 feet. After the stage arrived there were four ladies bound for Pine Flats. The burros were immediately saddled and on they went, up the mountains, and it was an amusing sight to watch them winding back and forth till they finally disappeared. Still beyond Pine Flats about two or two and a half miles is a point where you look over into Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, Jnyo, Kern, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Did you ask about the mosquitoes? No, the pestive mosquito, with his melodious song to sing you into disquietude arid unrest, is not there. Ho is an unknown quantity. After a good rright'u rest the writer- took a little trip up the canyon to the left of the hotel and after n five minutes 1 walk came to the falls, with a drop of perhaps fifteen feet, at the foot of which we found u Mr. and Mrs. Drake carnpt-d. Just, above the fulls is what is known as Diamond Rock, a huge boulder, in form somewhat like n cube,, standing on one point in tho middle of the stream aud is estimated to weigh over 5000 tons. The forenoon was spent in a trip up the canyon to the right of th^ hotel and taking in the various vieus of interest, in short, feasting on the beauties and grandeur of nature, with which we were, coii'iiletely fciir- rounded. At l:lfi p.m. we bade farewell to Cold Brook, homeward bound, and at 5 :'!0 p. m. uero enjoying a dish of ice i ream at Axusa, tired anil dusty, but feeling well repaid for the effort <\e had made-.

Messrs. Schuinm A: Harris of the local tailor shop lost, two hammocks on tho night, before the Fourth. They were nwaro that Eoriicono was "having fun" with thorn, and wore pretty sure who it was. Tho nd inserted was somo- thing like this: "If tho two big stifl's who were seen stenling tho hammocks in tho renr of our shop will onll on us they win have the hooks, as we have no further use for them." Tho proprietors say that; it was tho following day that two follows made n stealthy attempt to roturn^lho hammocks and were caught in the act, It, also developed that a rancher, who stands six foot two in his stocking feet, known to his inUirinl.o friends as Frankio, was supposed to have two second-hand hammocks which he would soil cheap. When il, ho- (iniiiH known to some of tho people about town, he was called on the phono no loss than fifteen times to answer (pioslions about, those same hammocks, and once ho traveled across a twenty acre grove to answer a call on this subject, Summer Excursion Rates.
