Excerpt from California: Our Western Wonderland Those of us who made the Little Journey through the Great South-West, will not be content, having arrived at Los Angeles, to rest there. It may be called the southern gate-way to the real West, the West teeming with places of absorbing interest, in endless variety. In the space of a few short days we intend to visit Mount Wilson, from whose summit we may look at the sun through a mirror telescope over six thousand feet above the level of the sea, or we may peer into the wonders of the ocean's bottom at Catalina, or, again, visit the Venice of the Pacific, admiring this copy of the famous Italian city visited on another Little Journey. Moreover, to visit Los Angeles late in January, and find balmy winds, flowers and clear blue skies, when the rest of the country is covered with ice and snowr7 will make every drop of roving blood in our veins urge us to winder. We are reminded of the poem we read somew here at home and w'hich has seemed so often to express our owm sentiments on these trips of ours: Beyond the East the sun-riseBeyond the West the sea, And East and West the "wander-thirst"That will not let me be; About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
