On .the way the train passed many points of interest, including the great engineering feat by which the train ascends, crosses and descends into the great central valley of the state. Al- ways of interest to travelers is the "lt,op", where the road runs around a hillside and through a tunnel a hun- drcd or more feet below the track "where the train was a few moments before. Passing through the valley there are the orchards ot various kinds, the green fields of alfalfa, with here and there a field that has just been cut, the hay already in bales and ready for the market. A large part of the tree crops have been harvested--but here and there were trees full of late crops of apricots, peaches, pears, etc. Vineyard after vineyard, there were trays of grapes turning into raisins be- neath the September sunshine. All traces of the great floods of wa- ter that covered so many places dur- ing the winter season were practically obliterated. Off to the right or to the left were the forests of oil derricks, showing where the so-called "black gold" was being pumped from the underground reservoirs. Arriving at Stockton, there was a transfer to the train for Sacramento; and at the end of about a two-hour ride we were in the capital city of the great State of California. We were met there by Mrs. Hugh Hougham, formerly of Santa Ana, and were the guest of the family, while there. At Sacramento Thursday we spent the greater por- tion of the day at the annual Califor- nia State Fair. Since our last visit quite a number of new exhibit build- ings have been built, the grandstand greatly enlarged, the grounds beauti- fied by additional landscape engineer- ing, etc. It is needless to go into details about the exhibits, save to say that they were larger and more numerous than" ever before. In the evening we had the privilege of joining the Rotarians of Sacra- mento, together with visitors and guests from other places, in a special dinner in Merriam Hall, so named in honor of Governor Frank Merriam, who was the honored guest of the evening, and also the principal speak- er. There were upwards of 600 mem- bers, guests and ladies present. After dinner a hurried triI; was made down town to Native Sons of the Golden West Hall, where we had an- ticipated spending the evening with lnembers of that order. However, the attractions at the State Fair, and the absence of some who had alreadv gone to Vallejo to take part in the /kdmis- sion Day exercises, left those present withmt a quorum. Nevertheless, we were pleased to make the acquaintance of those present, and hope to meet more of them at some later visit.

Then, after some weeks, you happily find that your "company" has been just wonderful; they have been "regu- lar folks"--everything is going along swell--they didn't even kick that night when coming in late and tip-toeing along to not awaken the household, they crashed into son's playwagon, and skidded with a thunderous finale along on daughter's roller skates into yon table. Of course, we did hear some "words", but they must have just voiced opinions of the weather? Just as you feel your "company" are part of the family; have grown to like them more than just friends--gosh, all of a sudden they come around briskly in the morning--shake hands, .express appreciation for the assocmtmn-- praise your home and are embarking on the steamer for foreign shores. Sort of e~uses a pang, and you walk around the streets and home for a few days knowing that something is miss- (Continued on Page 10, Column 2) 'Little' Business When President Roosevelt called a conference of small business men at Washington last winter, they respond- ed by forming their own association under DeWitt M.
