Urlswold Return From Eastern Journey, A transcontinental trip touching upon nearly every large city In tho United States has just bteu completed by Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Uriswold of this city. Mr, and Mrs. Uriswold loft Covinn on July I5th aud returned Wednesday eveniug. Tbo northern route was taken via tho Canadian Pacific to Montreal and thence to Boston. All the cities of the Middle West, including Detroit, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Paul, aud others, were visited. At Boston, the Coviun rancher and his wife spout considerable time viewing the many historical places in the city, also going to Lexington and Concord. Mr. Griawold spoke of his enjoyable visit to Concord, whnre the war of tho Revolution had its beginning, of the monument at Concord bridge, and the homesteads of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Ralph Waldo Emerson, of Sleepy Hollow cemetery, where the great poots m.-J statesmen of this country tiro buried, nnd the many historical places of interest in that old New England town. On the return trip, Mr. and Mrs. Oriswold took the southern route, stopping in New Orleans and other southern cities, and in Houston, Texas. Mr. and Mrs, Oriswold are among the oldest settlers in tho Upper Sun Gabriel valley, coming here when there wure only n few scattered ranchers on the plains. The possibility of establishing a homo here at that time was rather a hopeless one. Water to drink and for the cattle had to be bi'ougbt inj barrels from the San 1 'r5iitfitai4' W a^ was so scarce that the oattle died, and existence on the plains was pro- carious and dreary at all times. Tho Uriswold family clung to the soil, however, and wus rewarded in (he cud by witnessing tho growth ot one ol' the greatest fruit cuuntiius in Hie world. Mr. Uriswold has been identified with eveiy public-spirited movement for improvement since making his home here. He now owns 1 cr.e of tho finest fruit orchards- in Southern California. "You miy for mo," en id Mrs. Cirin- wold, "that 1 saw many delightful scenes, and enjoyed my trip thoroughly, but J would not exchange any of the fluent homes in tho East for my own hero in Covina. I am able to appreciate Covina and my old home more than ever, now that I havo seen tho manner in which they live in the East. I am glad to got back to Southern California again." "(Jf course I had a very enjoyable triji," said Mr. (Iriswohl, "It was one Hint I wished to lako for a long lime, Hut I knew that 1 was not going to see anything that waw any better than we have right here at borne, only that. thiliKH would be diffeieill. We had Hut privilege of hoeing heavy snow falls in the East, and watching the cold weal her come on and change j the beautiful went her to I ho dreary winter.
