A calm, or a still, on life's rough sea,
A place where is always afternoon."

Starting from Los Angeles, one can reach the orange country at River-
side in one day nicely, and stop for the noonday meal at Pomona or
Ontario. From Riverside a few minutes' ride brings one to Redlands,
with its wonderful mountain-top park, which can be explored perfectly
with a wheel ; San Bernardino, the Mormon City, with all its curiosities
and near-by mineral springs ; Colton, with its rich mountain rising out
of the plain ; and other towns, each in its way inviting attention.

Pasadena, crown of San Gabriel valley, is less than an hour's ride from
Los Angeles by several routes, and in all directions from the Crown City
are canons, natural parks, vineyards, beautiful boulevards and scenery
that cannot be exhausted in a summer.

On the ocean side, Los Angeles offers Santa Monica, Redondo, San
Pedro, Long Beach — all with sea bathing and the usual coast delights,
and all within easy and quick reach. Halfway between are old ranchos
with historic haciendas, and other queer sights well worth investigating.

To the lover of long wheel tours, San Diego and the Mexican border
find favor ; and from Los Angeles by a three days' run, Whittier, Sanla
Ana, San Jtian Capistrano Mission, San Luis Rey Mission, San Antonio
de Pala Mission, Oceanside, San Diego Mission, Old Town, Coronado
Beach, and San Diego city, as well as scores of other interesting points,
can be visited. Returning, Escondido, Temecula, Elsinore Lake, Perris
and the mines, as well as the orange country, can be touched.

As for cycle racing, Southern California leads the world in third-of-a-
mile tracks ; for there are seven within a radius of forty miles from
Pomona, as well as many quarter-mile and mile tracks of good quality.

The third-of-a-mile modern bicycle track is found in all its various
forms at Pasadena, Santa Ana, Santa Monica, Riverside, Redlands, San
Bernardino and South Riverside ; while the quarter-mile tracks at Los

Angeles, Duarte, Ontario, Pomona and Santa Barbara are all different.
Over in Arizona there is a third-of-a-mile track at Tucson, and a quarter-
mile at Phcenix. Frequent tournaments are held at all these points.

These tracks offer exceptional advantages for training for future races,
and many of them are used for record-breaking — notably the mile Cor-
onado track at San Diego, and the Pasadena and Santa Ana ovals. Lately
a team made up of riders from a dozen different States has been breaking
records at Coronado, after trying in vain elsewhere, while a few months
ago the whole world was wondering at the record-breaking at this same
track by an entirely different team, which had come across the continent
for the purpose.

The highways of the Southwest have not, as a whole, been^improved,
yet many of them have never needed to be worked by man. Nature,
notably in Riverside County, has made excellent roads that need no care.
But this is a big country, and as yet thinly settled, so there are thousands
of miles of highway that is little used. Naturally, such roads are not as
good as they should be. But there are still other leagues of highways
and byways that are equal to any traveled by man. Therefore it can be
said that there are many perfect roads in the Southwest, "and these roads
are being constantly lengthened and added to, until not many years
hence Southern California will have nothing to desire in roadways,
whether for wagon or cycle.





• Oceanside Resort.

DWAY from Santa Ana on the north and Coronado on the
south, Oceanside, on the Southern California Ry., is the only
seaside resort possessing all the requirements necessary to
perfect enjoyment for a sojourn by the sea. Its beach "downstairs,"
with its fine white sand and freedom from dangerous undertow, offers to
bathers the luxuries of the Pacific and gathering shells by the sea shore.
To the eye, the beauties of ocean and land present themselves in ever
varying shades.

" See the grace
Of yonder crescent-curving beach
Where bathers sport and children plav
From June to June, the year's long day."

The Isaac Waltons find here their Mecca for sea fishing. The constant
run and great variety of fish lures enthusiastic anglers, every month in
the year, to match their skill against the cunning of the denizens of the
deep. The new iron wharf provides ample facilities for fishing in every

The South Pacific Hotel caters to the requirements of its guests in a
manner rarely found outside of the so-called " fashionable resorts."
The house itself possesses all the appointments of the modern hotel,
comfortably furnished rooms, gas and electrical appliances. The cuisine
consists of the choicest the markets offer, served to perfection. Every
variety of game in its season the menu offers to the guests.

Outside, the spacious flower gardens, with their wealth of blossoms
free to all the guests, offers attractions none care to resist.

The bracing sea air and pleasant surroundings, together with the
not -to-be-overlooked reasonable rates for accommodation, bring to this

resort by the sea those who delight in the quiet pleasures for rest and
health. Mr. Pieper, the proprietor, and his charming wife are unremit-
ting in making their guests' sojourn pleasant and comfortable.

The railroad branches to Fallbrook and Escondido afford a day's
change amid other scenes. The wild and rugged scenery up the Temecula
canon to Fallbrook station makes the trip delightfully entertaining. The
mines at Escondido always prove attractive. But incomplete indeed
would be your pleasures without at least one visit to the San Luis Rey
Mission. The church is being restored to its former beauties, and with
the conserving of the remainder, there

" Still stands this cloistered mystery,
Where wasted walls enfold
Vast stores of hidden history,
Unwritten or untold."

Special excursion rates will enable many, otherwise debarred, to enjoy
a trip over the Surf Line to Oceanside and the South Pacific Hotel.

Its commanding position, its outlook over valley and mountain, its
generously extended porticos, 350 feet in length by 10 feet in width, with
its swinging hammocks, invite for rest and idleness and the enjoyment
of the ever present ocean breeze. Any hunting? Yes, indeed! Quail,
geese, ducks, rabbits, and deer so abundant as to reward the energetic
sportsman with pleasing success. After the hunt, the Fallbrook Club-
house (its privileges reserved to the members and invited guests), also
under the management of the proprietors of Hotel Naples, affords ex-
change of stories over a game of billiards or cards, enlivened with a
mouthful of " 'alf-and-'alf, sir."

Hotel Naples itself is modern, and its accommodations for rest or health
or recreation are perfect. Commodious rooms, splendid cuisine and service,
moderate rates and courteous treatment. Watkins Bros', livery supplies
horse locomotion, safe and sound, with up-to date style and comfort.

Those who long for an outing in the mountains, coupled with all the
accessories of home comfort, should visit Fallbrook and Hotel Naples.

Cycling in the Southwest.

All the year riding.

No rain to fear for two-thirds of the year.

More up-to-date bicycle tracks than in any other equal territory.

The largest club in the Southwest is the San Diego Wheelmen, with
250 members.

A training league with twenty-five members has been organized within
the Riverside Wheelmen, to use and take care of the club's track.

Pomona and Ontario have bicycle clubs, but only the latter has been
represented in the race meets.

The Citrus Wheelmen held a race meet at Los Angeles on May 30. .

Santa Barbara has a small club, which owns a quarter mile track, but
does little racing.

The women's bicycle racing at Los Angeles, May 9th, got the frost
such affairs deserve. Women's place is not in bicycle races.

A daily edition of the American Wheelman was launched in New York
late in May. There are about fifty weekly and monthly bicycle papers
in this country.

Santa Paula and Ventura have no bicycle clubs, but they are very
enthusiastic wheel towns, and much riding is done in Ventura by both

This Division of the League of American Wheelmen has lately held
missionary meetings at San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino. The
objects of the L. A. W. are to improve the roads, manage all cycle racing,
and look after the interests of those who use the wheel.

The runs to the various mineral baths about San Bernardino are short
rides that are very popular with the riders of that city, and Redlands,
Colton and Riverside as well.

The cycle club at Santa Ana is being reorganized into an athletic
association, which will absorb the fine bicycle track and grounds of the
old Orange County Wheelmen.

A short and easy ride from any part of Los Angeles is to East Lake
Park, out the old Mission road, and back by the extension of North Main
street, these thoroughfares forming the two sides of the park.

Pasadena has many riders of the wheel besides its hustling club, which
owns the finest dirt track in America. In New Year's parade, as well as
the floral parade of La Fiesta, the Crown City Cycling Club was the
cynosure of all eyes in its beautiful white uniform and high Mexican hats.

The roads in Riverside, which are the finest thoroughfares in the
Southwest, have lately been adorned by signboards, thanks to the enter-
prise of the Riverside wheelmen. The only drawback to riding in River-
side county has been the absence of signboards.

There are many grand bicycle rides about Los Angeles, but every new
rider seems to rush off to Santa Monica, Sundays, over that less inter-
esting highway, and leave all the others unvisited.

^> ITUATED at a distance of 35 miles from the Pacific ocean, and 39
/©# miles east of Los Angeles, on the main line of both the Southern
Pacific and Santa Fe railways, is the beautiful town of Ontario.
In location, climate, soil, and water privileges, Ontario has many ad-
vantages. Fine business blocks, electric cars and lighting, handsome
churches and schools, fine residences, surrounded by what is already
becoming a great forest of citrus and deciduous orchards, blocked out
by splendid shade trees — such is Ontario at thirteen years. How many
Eastern towns twice its age and population would ever dream of half
its progress? The elevation, ranging from 950 to 2500 feet, insures a
most healthful and agreeable climate, while the conditions for growing
citrus and deciduous fruits cannot be excelled.


For the past two years Ontario has planted more orchard lands than
any other district in Southern California, the firm of Hanson & Co. alone
having planted over 1500 acres to the various kinds of citrus and decidu-
ous fruits. This they are selling in 10 or 20-acre tracts, at prices ranging
from $150 to $400 per acre, according to location of lots and water priv-
ileges. These prices are for three-year-old orchards. The streets and
avenues are planted to ornamental and shade trees, and kept in good
order. There are some beautiful residences now on their tract.

They also have several orchards in full bearing which are good value,
and will bear investigation. Anyone desiring further information should
write for pamphlet to Hanson & Co., Ontario, or 122 Pall Mall, London,

The Quaker Novelty Company has ad-
ded to its many other novelties a very
delightful contrivance known as the

consists of a crimped or breadthwise
fluted sheet iron cylinder, which opens
lengthwise into halves, one of which is
nearly filled with the bread sponge. In
an hour the closed cylinder is filled with
the raised dough and another hour in the
oven, and the result is the most beautifully
crusted and evenly baked loaf, having
the appearance of a pile of waffles.

My Dear Sir : For the first time in my life I write a recommendation for a curative agent. It
is only because I regard the Oxydonor " Victory " as a boon to mankind that I now send you this testi-
monial. I have used the Oxydonor " Victory " for some time, and have found it thus far redeeming
every promise made for it. It is a most admirable thing for professional people, and I recommend it
with the utmost heartiness, and in the highest terms. In fact, so enthusiastic am I over it, that I have
induced several friends to try it. Yours most sincerely, Burt Estes Howard.
