They nr« only waiting for the solid gentleman to succeed the strenuous cue in the White House, before hanging out the not-at-houie sign iu the Jfar Enst and the Middle West. But we who have rhapsodized great junks of rhapsody about the marvels of Soutb- ren California, feel jnst a wee bit of nostalgia whet) a communication comet to us, reading like a prose- poem, of the grandeur of the frost touched states of the East—for this is the season of the wondrous paua- rama of autumn, "back East." Read this appreciation of "mine own country" from a New Englonder: Nature's wonderful autumnal carnival of color is now iu full. progress up here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The first caresses of the frost king were felt by the maples and beeches about the fifth of September. Day by day the early patches of red and yellow and brown have extended their area, until now the entire mountain region has fallen under the spell of the Great Painter, and grim Mt,. Washington gazes through the liquid September haze upon a far-reaching harlequinade of rainbow hues. There is nothing upon all this continent, or elsewhere, that can compare with the autumnal glory of the White Mountains. No pen can adequately describe it, no painter can catch the inmost spirit of it; there is neither money nor skill enough in the world to reproduce it on any stage. No matter from what point of vantage the autumnal foliage of the mountains is viewed—whether from the summit of high mountains or the floor of valley, the spectacle is one that is grand beyond description. ' There are some who prefer to view the Grand Canyon of Arizona from its rim, while others think that its majesty is best appreciated from the bottom: and so it is with the grand outdoor display of September and October in the White Mountains. On Sunday evening last the moon was absent,and the blue-white mantle of fog that wraps the slender eucalyptus in a ghostly winding .shroud •was late in coming, so that the stars were cut as clearly iu the sky aa of a winter evening iu the temperate zones. Along the Covina roadways the currents of air, now warm and fragrant, now cooler and laden with presage of rain as the breath of the canyons were passed through, gave hint of the coming of this subtle change iu seasons, harbinger of the freshening months of California autumn. In this atmosphere, the lights of Pasadena hung like silver ropes, tremulous and beautiful, and beyond, the yellow blur in the murky night betrayed where Los Angeles, Queen- Wotnau of the Southern Slopes, reigned over the hope and desire of New America. "How plain the lights of Pnsadpua show tonight," remarks the citizen, cautious of too much prodigality in expression. And this must pass as his tribute to the strange shade-picture of a southern night. And if, sometime, some friend is lying low, Where human kissos cannot reach his face, O, do not blame the Loving Father so, But wear your sorrow with obedient grace. --William Hopkins. Baptists Will Convene.

WALNUT CENTER. The early rains surprised some of the ranchers iu the district with their alfalfa flat in the field, but as a rule not many had the hay mown at (the time. The rain did more good to the community than damage, as it thoroughly soaked the ground to a depth of nearly eight inches, and many ranchers took advantage of the time to plow in their stubble. A few acres in onions were caught out, and these are being harvested before they begin to sprout again. The rain was welcome from one standpoint, inasmuch as it laid the dust iu the roads from whioh the ranchers in this vicinity suffer a great deal during the summer months. A determined movement IH on foot to get the roads oiled before another dry season comes. W. S. Sawyer has returned from a hunting trip in Solidud canyon and is busy leveling a part of his 100 acre ranch. Milton Iladdnx is harvesting the last of his big crop of Banana apples.
