O, where are the torch-light processions five miles long that made the night spectacular and the heart of the citizen glad? It is almost inconceivable that we are on the eve of electing a president. There isn't as much enthusiasm as there used to he. More solid thinking, perhaps, but the typewriter and the pen seemeth poor substitutes for the soul-stirring strains of brass bands and the shrill skirl of the fife and drum corps. The Scribbler remembers one of the Harrison-Cleveland campaigns when the last month of the contest was a blare of trumpets and marching men in fantastic costumes— the Harrison Carrels. What an inspiring sight it was to see this body or' men tramping beneath gleaming transparencies, while the sidewalks were jammed with cheering American citizens! • Along the line of march (which generally embraced every street in the city) the flags and banners were cheered continuously, until the marchers arrived at the final point of disbanding with throats aching and feet dragging. Is the torchlight procession a thing of the past? The .young voter must rely largely on newspaper notices for bis enthusiasm nowadays. It is a sad thing to contemplate that campaign speeches have detonated into bald affidavits, typewritten speeches, and newspaper controversies. JSo doubt we are progressing, but it is a sad thing for youth to see the torch-light procession relegated to the dim past. The annual fall festival arjd fair of Brockton (Mass.) has been in progress all this week. The Brockton exchanges tell us that 70,000 people were on the grounds on the biggest day. What we want to remark here is the .fact that this great annual .holds some of the finest harness and saddle racing known to this country, with stakes aggregating over 8100000, during the four days, and a book has never been made on any race at this fair or betting of any kind allowed. Yet it is the big closing event of the New England racing season. Horse racing can be maintained and financed without gambling. This fair is an exemplification of it. The horse is a noble ani tual to all true lovers of sport. The horse is not to blame for the prostitution of the racing game. The voice of Caruso and oC famous grand opera singers issuing from the interior of a humble shack where a laborere's family is gathered after the evening meal, would be a source of wonder a few years ago, but the genius Edison and other great inventors have made it possible. It is no matter o( surprise nowadays to hear the worker in the ditch whittling bits of grand opera riither than rag time. The phonorgaph ia a big educator iu muaio, and it has improved so much in the past three years that it cannot longer be looked upon with contempt by music lovers. Covina is within an hour's plensiint ride from Los Angeles. This fact is lost sight of by the average advertiser, but it should be incorporated in every prospectus or private letter that goes out ot thin city. Eastern people have little Idea of the size of our state, and reckon everything by a vague knowledge of out three largest cities. Be explicit aa to our locality. It will bring results.

When you've planted a Beaumont apple orchard you've founded a fortune. ^Thirty years of experience have proven this the supreme apple center of Southern California. Far size, quality, soundness, markctableness and delicious flavor Beaumont apples rank Supreme with apples of any apple section. Beaumont's apple market is Southern California, not New York, Chicago and other Eastern cities 300 miles away, as is the case with oranges. Apples, the aristocrat of the deciduous fruit world, bring more money and find a more certain market than any fruit that hangs from the limb of any California fruit tree. Kipe today, the apple appears on the shelf of the grocer within a hundred tnilesof Beaumont tomorrow—freight minimum, handling inexpensive, cash returns immediate. Apples of Beaumont quality everywhere are as marketable as wheat. Last year there was a shortage in the apple crop exceeding 1,000,000 bnr- rels. Market prices in Southern California compare with oranges as follows at the orchard: Oranges, one and eighty-hundredths cents per pound. Beaumont apples, one and ninety-live-hundredths. One man at Beaumont, Mr. A. A. Warren, took $5000 from 75(> apple trees. We repeat, "fortune is at your linger tips" this privilege of buying Beaumont apple lands.
