Awhile ago she was having a spirited word contest with a small chum, but as was ever the case, was keeping well within the bounds of good deportment. The neighbor's little girl had just been enumerating the many wonderful things her papa and mama had at their house. "An' we had plum pudding for dinner yesterday," went on the little girl's playmate. "We have plum pudding 'most ever' day," was the reply. "An* tomorrow night, we are going to have turkey an' lots of things an' pies an' er some more plum pudding and just lots and lots of things." "We have 'em all at olir house every day," was the sturdy response. "Well, there's one thing that you never had that we're going to have tomorrow night, an' that's an anniversary for papa and mama." "We have anniversaries for dinner every day," was the crushing rejoinder. And that's the kind of spirit that •will build empires on the Pacific Coast, or anywhere. "Sometimes I get a little weary of seeing so much fruit growing all around me, and have a hankering for a sight of the splendid cornfields i used to know as a boy 'way back in Kansas," said an orange raiser to the Scribbler the other day. And it was with great joy that we told him how it was not necessary to go back to Kansas for that wonderful opportunity. Down in the new district to the south of us, in Walnut Center, there is corn growing twelve feet high, green as the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, with ears of grain forming that would make a good substitute for a gas-pipe if you wanted to hold somebody up. This country is becoming more diversified every clay, and the wizard is man and his wand is water. The California rooster has absolutely no respect for old traditions. The bird that heralds the coming morn in other countries, wakes up any old Lime o' night and sends forth his lying summons. A nocturnal fumigator in the orange groves only has to shout once to start pandemonium in all the chicken roosts within a mile, and the dogs feel slighted if they're not let in on the chorus. The mocking bird and the rooster are our finest night singers. The Aftermath. Gaily he springs to the saddle, In the dawn pf an eager day, And gaily he rides astraddle Thro' the canyon's tortuous way. Forgetting hf3's clerk in a grocery store, To mount and ride as in days of yore. Then at the next day's dawning He comes to his humble toil With a hitch in his gait, this morning As if something needed oil. And he hasn't the heart to sit on that part Where the saddle started the boll. NEW WALNUT BLEACH. Advices from Southern California indicate that thft walnut growers have now available a IKJW bleach that will supersede the old one. Prof. Stabler of the I'ltiversiiy of California was engaged by the walnut growers to discover, if possible. a new bleach, and I'fCc-iiily save a denioii.st ration in Los Angeles of his nesv discovery, and it was pronounced 1-y those in attendance a.s superior 10 that formerly used. Prof Staliler's solution is composed of four pounds ol salt, to which Is added a qiianiity of water, which is run through an electrical apparatus and the nuts subsequently immersed therein. The fact that the blt-ach which has b.--en so long in use was patented, ami suits for int'rin.uemeiH institute.! against iho;->- who com inm-d using i). dt-trniiiui-d the growers u.
