In Riverside it is usually o'ovious that the orange tree is the queen among the products ot t he .earth. It is no longer an e.'Pperiment here. It has become a succcss beyond e.xpectiition. JIagnolia avenue in Riverside is more than si'ven miles of a double roadway. Hanked by the eucalyptus, the palm, and the (^xqiiisite .pepper tre(', with, !Magno-liiis at t he cro.ssings. Each sidt; is a succession of approaches to orange groves, of a few iieres each. Thci inansions^—for the orange~has converted nearly all these «farm hoii.ses into mansions and villas— are set well back from- the uvei^ue  the fruit is noi so good as that from • orchards in hilly situations. , |  In si-K years from the time of' planting citttings, .so Mr. Cooper ' has informed us, an . olive orchard will give a paying crop, and there  òr  two before the ei.K years. An orchard increases in bearing capacity until great age is attaineil. 'There is scarcely a liniit to the life .of the tree. Tliere are specimens believed to be 2000 years old. The root system never wholly die.s,- and constantly sends up suckers that, in a state of nature, replaces iheparent  And the newspaper advertising j did double duly; Our people made' it a rule to advertisii in our local papers, and ask all our friend.s to advertise. . ■  We then subscribed for a large number of copies, loaded with local advertising and full of accounts, of our future prospects' and .great advantages, and we found by conver.s-ing with parties who finally came here. prospecting, that the full advertising columns of our papers which they saw, did more tlian all else to impress them witli the growth and importance of the place.  Wo found that we could not' over-do this thing—that the niore  stem should the latter decay. Aii these purposes, the '""j  olive or^iard, once brought to bear- „.ere'our profits. Everv ne.w'l ,  and declare that these acres are no Ipngev farins, but seats of ornamental life. ^Vhateverthe eye may desiie in landscape-gardening, in cause oHljis is always traceable to> ilowers and fruits, the eye rests oii  man rather  the ignoraTiöG; of the than to the qualitj of the seed, or the unkindlinesB ôf the soil or air.  there.

I frankly confess a pi-iiferehce.'  The Olive.  AX AVTIIORITY CALLS IT THE MOST rnoriTAiu.E tkKe.  .''The olive is the most profitable tree I know of." So wrote lilbvpod Cooper of Santa Barbara not long ago in answer to an inquiry from the editor of the Appeal. Sir. Cooper has had experiiiucc in (ialifornia with almost every description of fruit trees grown in the State. He has a large orchard of ICnglish walnuts, but he finds nothing to compare in profits with his famous olive orchard,, of which t>ho net yield from oil has been probably not less than $800 an acre per annum for a number of j'ears past. So great is the demand for his oil .thatthiB.aea.so.nJ.u; has hc^eniunable^ to sujiply even his old customers the full quantity ordered by them ; and he has this j'car doubled the -lirice, which was formerly $3.50 per dozen quarts in tho San Francisco market. ■ At the present rato Mr. (lobpers's profit nnist reach the enormous sum of $1500 'iin acre, aiid li^fhaB' forty acres of twelve-year-old treDBi^ besides a -cpnsiderable acreage of yoiingr trees. Even the orange, tlwuglj. a very profitable ree, can show no, example'of euch splraditr rotWhs ME Cooper's  ing conditioii, will give a constantly increasing revenue during the lifetime of its owner, and , remain a source of revenue lor'many generations.  The olive is a much hardier tree than the orange. It will stand ten or twelve more degrees of cold. 'It can-be planted anywhere up to an elevation of: 2,000 feet or more, without the least danger of injury fi'om cold. Antl the crop in this state seems to be entirely unaffect-ed by frost. The blossoms appear iibput ]SIay Ist^ ■ , Au^olive orchiird is much easier and much cheaper to establish than ah orange orchard. Roofed olive cuUings two years old ciin be bought for 35 cents each, or thereabouts, while a first-class orange ree 'costb at least $1.50. The orange dcniands irrigation ; the olive needs none.. The olive can be successfully' grown on cheap land, whi!e_the orange calls for a diiep, rich soil. And cither for oil or for pickles the olive can be counted on .to pay a larger profit than the, orange for many years to c^omo in California.' . ' ,  Comparitively few - Americans realize the great food vaftie of the olivc\ It is .the vuluQ.pf the .tree's products as nutriment that makes it intrinsically of more w;orth than any other tree known to man. There is a fable that illuBtrates how well the ancient Greeks kneiv this. Athens, it is related, w!us founded by Cecrops, w,lio offered the privclcjip of naming the city to^ that one of tho gods who àhouLl  comcr was a customer to ftiost 'of our stores, and while their advertising paid to them rich returns, it served the double purpose to im-prc.'ss the eastthn man, who had an eye to business, with the fact that Wichita was in fact a rising town, ■apd thus we have gone on,.until we have an added population aince \ came here, of over 20,000, and property has increased in 'business places inore than a thousand fold, and in the country 'roundabout lis the appreciation has boon over four hundred per cent.  \'ou have in times gone by, done a great deal of advertising for mo, as you know, but I know as well as you can know, that printer's ink ,is the best capital to booin a town. Had we not uped it unsparingly Wichita would not have been »ny larger than Abiline. As it is, we now outrank any town in the State.  A G()OD^SHb~wiN  iiciuand.

Tlu'sc products have tho wovld for a niar.ket, so tliat if one portion of our section e-xfierienccs dull times the activities in other portions will bring up the general average to a gratifying range- of prosperity. This remarkable fact gives to tho market for this section a broader more solid basis than appears ai first glance, and shows a valid reason for the rapid increase of our  population.

The field of industry in Southern California is pnii^tn^iilly boundless, anil the farmer or "xmechanic who comes here need not po.ssessed-of much wealth to find "^irofitable occupation from the staj't.

Neptune smote the earth with his trident, aiul forth sprang the horse. But Athena gave the olive tree, and the city was named in her hoijor. . As no nation hat? ever had a higher appreciation of the horse than had the ancient Greeks, one may perceive from this story the very high estimato they pi'a'ce lipon the olive!' The consumption o( olive .oil and pickled olives is certain to enprmously increase, in America as fast as those pi'od'uctB ai'e placed within the reach of the people at reasonable priées.  ten years should yield an average of twenty gallons of bei-ries to the tree. ' Any quantity of pickled olives can now be sold at 75 cents a gallon in/bulk. With one hundred trees to tho acre, as in Mr. Cooper's orcluird, tho yield per acre wpiijd be. 2,000 gallons, whichj ai 75 cents^a. galloHpWould tiirnisl^ return W 'per acte, Tbo-  UIVt'lUSlDE Sl'EeiMEXS THAT ARE HlTElilOR .TO THE nirORTED;  That lemons can be raised in Southern . California of a 'quality fully oquaL if not superior to, tho, foreig'n article, has been fully demonstrated by G. W. Garcelon,'of Riverside, Avho" left with the Tribune office yi^stth-day a' sample of thin-skinned lemons which he has christened t!ie Rip Van Winkle, taking tlie name'from tho fact that they rc(|uire a sleep, or time of^ ripening, of several months after being taken from the trees.. These lemons are of good size, rich in acid and abundant in juice. A year ago ■ Mr. tiarcolon shipped his lemons to San Francisco, where their quality was pronounced fully equal to tho very best of the foreign article, and he was assured that if ho would allow them to bo repacked in foreign , boxes, that they would bring tho highest price paid for foreign lemons, This proposition, be it said to Mr. Garcelon's credit,' he'po-siti-vely refused to accept, stating that he would sell them as Riverside lemons or not at all.  This year !\Ir. Garcelon has still further improV^ed the quality of hia fruit and has now" sold his entire crop to Porter Bros., of this city, who are ¡laying him t,hrec times as " . much as for the ordinary lemon. T.ie moral is obviqus.v All that is necessary is the ' proper care and the proper handling and the fruit of Southern California will bo found to Ijbe. tho equal in nil respects, if not the supfjrior, of that of the meet  them to light.
