"always read it, for I am heartily in sympathy with so many of the things for which it works."-PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT.FORMERLY "THE LAND OF SUNSHINE"THE NATION BACK OF US, THE WORLD IN FRONTOUT WESTA MAGAZINE OFTHE OLD PACIFIC AND THE NEW .EDITED BY CHAS. F. LUMMIS A magazine wholly unlike any other published anywhere. . . . The best there Is in periodical literature on the Pacific Coast. . . . Ability and individuality powerful enough and original enough to give distinction to any periodical. ... A voice listened to with respect and interest in all parts of the country."-The Dial. Its lively independence and its genuine learning-. ... A steady evenness of worth and interest." -The Nation.Editor's OfficeLos Angeles, Cal. May 12th 1906 Dear Jeremiah:who's killin' hussel with "over industry"? I would like to join you in Arizona,but I don't care anything about getting out of the library. If you will come out on my roof garden in the library I will show you an unpetrified forest almost as good as that at Adamana. Seriously, if you go back to Arizona without coming this way, and stopping to see me, I shall expect the scriptural fate of the other godless kids that mocked their elders to overtake you. It is going to be hard for me to get away now; but this is right on your main road and I think it would be positively indecent for you to go past us without stopping.03728637* r
