Stran 13 - Our Lady of the Angels" by the Spanish. On September 7, 1781, Governor Felipe de Neve issued orders from the San Gabriel Mission for the establishment of a pueblo on El Rio Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles and under the protection of Nuestra Senora La Reina de Los Angeles (Our Lady, Queen of the Angels), the mission by this name having been dedicated three days before, having practically the same title.
Stran 21 - Many have from one to five acres of ground, all in a high state of cultivation, with well-kept, verdant lawns upon which the fig, orange and palm cast a grateful shade. Along the sides of the streets shade trees are also the rule, the favorite varieties being the graceful pepper, which grows to a great size, the eucalyptus, grevillea and acacia.
Stran 52 - Madre range are Mount Wilson and Mount Lowe. The former is reached by a comfortable trail, either on foot or on horseback. Near the summit is a picturesque camp where good accommodations are furnished to visitors. The crest of the mountain is a park-like tract, shaded by giant junipers and pines, from which the visitor looks across a tremendous gorge into the heart of the range.
Stran 35 - California by means of irrigation, and that without it crops would be a failure. For all grains and winter crops irrigation is not employed. Corn is irrigated in some localities, being a summer crop, but is successfully grown in many places without irrigation. Upon some lands, after a crop raised without irrigation has been harvested, another is raised by means of irrigation.

Stran 13 - There are three leading features that have contributed to such growth. These are climate, soil and location. Any one of these advantages would be sufficient to build up a large city, but taken together they insure the future of the city as the metropolis of the southwestern portion of the United States.
Stran 5 - Within its 4000 square miles of territory — an area almost as large as the State of Connecticut — may be found the climate and scenery of almost every part of the State, from the cool and breezy seashore to the warm inland plains and bracing mountain tops. Of the area of the county, about four-fifths is capable of cultivation, the remainder being mountainous.
Stran 25 - all-the-year-round climate," pleasing in summer as well as winter. There is none of the depressing heat or the insect pests which drive visitors from Florida as soon as summer commences. It is not an enervating climate, but bracing and full of electricity; a climate that makes the sick well and the strong more vigorous.
Stran 35 - A mistaken idea prevails to some extent in the east that farming is only carried on in Southern California by means of irrigation, and that without it crops would be a failure. For all grains and winter crops irrigation is not employed. Corn is irrigated in some localities, being a summer crop, but is successfully grown in many places without irrigation. Upon some lands, after a crop...
Stran 52 - Lowe are reached by railroad, cable and electric cars, the latter forming an interesting and ingenious system of mountain railway which extends to Alpine Tavern, an elevation of 5,000 feet.
Stran 7 - California, and is largely devoted to the raising of oranges and lemons, as well as deciduous fruits. at the foot of the Sierra Madre range, about seven miles from Los Angeles. Within twenty years Pasadena has grown from a sheep pasture to a city of beautiful homes, with a world-wide reputation. Other settlements in the valley are Alhambra, Monrovia, Duarte and Aziisn, all of which are mainly supported by horticulture.
