THE OLIVE. Aping New York Manners.

Little Cur-r-r-r-r! We'll have blood !—Peabody Ciraphic. Pacific Fruit Grower. At the present time, no fruit is attracting more attention throughout California than the Olive. The history of this ancient fruit is closely as.sociated with that of the world. An olive branch has ; from time immemorial been considered an emblem of peace, a token' of quiet prosperity and plenty. The olive is a native of Asia Minor and flourishes along the shores of the Mediterranean. Frequent allusions are made to, the tree by the earliest poets. The ancient horticulturists believed that tlie tree would not succeed if planted more than a few leagues from the sea ; later experiments have dcMnonstratcd the fallacy cf this assertion. It is notice, however, that llourishe.s with especial on the limestone i>loj)es tiiat often form the (ireek peninsula, worthy of the olive lu.xuriance and crags shores of the A calcareous Little ! Lit! your A Contemptible Trick. Friond—Well, Eliza, how do yon like your husband? Eliza—He is a villain. "All men are ; but what has he done?" "You know he was n widower. Well, I've found out that all his love letters tome were copied verbatim from the ones he wrote; to his first wife when they were courting." "W'oll, I wouldn't mind it. He never will send you any more."— Texas Siftings. The Power Behind the Throne The building of t)io line from Pomona to Klsinore means a crosscut to San Diego for the Southern Pacific. The road is being graded and pushed vigorously. Tlie building of a broad-guage line from Elsi-nore depot to the city, and so on down the; valley to the Nail and TeVra Coita works and so on beyond, called a motor, means an outlet for the Santa Fe. It is generally believed that being the case, there is likely to be music along the line. More developments will be given as they appear.—L. A. Tribune. RiyerO If ojpulà,. Shooting Arrows. Youth's.Companion. In the days wlicn tlie buff,'alo was found in vast herds on the Western plains, there were Indians who, while riding at a gallop, could send an arrow through a buflalo's body. Rómarkable as this shooting was, yet -it did not equal that reached by the archers of ancient times. Mr. Dixon, in his history of Gair-lock, Scotland, says that the Mae-Raes of that district were such skilful archers that tliey could hit a man at the distance of four and even five hundred-yards. He instances the killing of a ser-ving-man at five hundred yards, and of two men killing several Mc-Leods at four hundred yards. Lest the reader should discount the distance of the range, the author mentions several wonderful shots made by Turks. In 1794, the Turkish ambassador shot an arrow, in a field near London, four hundred and fifteen yards against tho^wind, and four hundred and eighty^wo yards' with the wind. The secretary of thè anibassador, on hearing the expressions" of, surprise from the Englinh gentlemen present, said the Sidtan had shot five hundred yards. This was the greatest 'performance of modern days, but a pillar, standing on a plain near Constantinople, recorded shots ranging up to eight hundred yards. Sir Robert Ainslie, British Ambassador to the Sublime Porte, records that in 1798 he was pre.sent when the Sultan shot an arrow nine hundred and seventy-two yards. ■ Tliomas Corwin, the great orator of Ohio, said to a man who wanted aim to get him official position at Washington : "Accept a clerkship hero and you sink at once all independence. I may give you a place to-day, and I can kick you out to-morrow, and there is another man over at the White House who can kick me out, and the people by and by can kick him out, and so we go. But if you own one acre of land if^is your "kingdom, aiid j'our. cabin is your castle. You are a sovereign, and you will feel it in, every throb of your pulse and every day of your life will assure mé of your thanks in having thus advised you." . soil, however dry and poor, seems best adajited to its healthy development, and yet it has been proved that the tree will do well where ' these conditions do not prevail. I No liner olives grow in California, or anywhere, than in the deep^soiT of San Fernando Mission. Us cultivation in this State dates from the iieriod of the establishment of the first Jesuit ^lission on the Pacific Coast, which was founded in 1709, and since that time olive culture has gradually assumed more iiretentious dimensions. It is only within the last few years, hoAvever, that our fruit growers have come to a full realization of the value of the olive as an article of export. In the Homeric age the oil prepared from the fruit was known only as a luxury of the wealthy, especially as an article of toilet, with which the warriors anointed themselves after the bath. It did not take long, however, before the value of the tree's product as. nutriment, made it intrinsically of more worth than any other tree known to man. Pickled rijie olives ni.ikc uj) a large part of the food of jnillions of people in EurojK?. There is no more wholesome food. America will consume many millions of gallons of such food annually. Olive oil has for many years ranked next to wiiK! as one of the main stays of Italian agriculture. The yearly production in that country averages 88,000,000 gallons. In these days of excessive competition, when, quality is sacrificed to cheapness, tlu! exported article from Southern ISurope is often adulterated with cotton seed oil. Our California olives are in every way equal to the best grown in Europe. Tlie possibilities of the industry are beyond (computation, while the profits are simply astonishing. An eminent authority on olive culture clainis that there is not an acre of hind in the State containing a bearing and healthy olive orchard ivhich (nin be bought for less than fl^GOO." Ellwood Coojier gets $10 a gallon for his oil. Estimating the wholesale iriee'at $4 per gallon, or, at the owcst, $25 per tree, the income from one acre will be $900. Allow one-half for expenses, and you luive still a net profit of $450 per acre. Mr. Adolphe Flamant, of Napa, whose "Treatise on Olive Culture'' is justly celebrated,' was brought up in France, among the olive trees and has devoted many years of his life to the successful cultivation of this fruit in California. His opinion is worth quoting. "I believe," says this authority, that the cultivation of the olive is .going to attract much more interest in this State than vitieulture, because by pickling or making oil, it will pay three or four times as much. By Mr. Flamant's special permission we reproduce conclusions in regard ture : , In the first place the hill, or moimtain lands, dry and rocky, which appear to be the most propitious for the robust constitution of the olive tree can be bought in California at prices ranging much below those necessary for the culture of other fruit trees or vines. The cost of planting on such lands and care of the trees during the first year will hardly exceed $5 per acre; the purchase of one year old rooted cutting^ will not exceed from $10 to $15 per acre, and the annual care will be Jess than $5 per acre until the trees come to bearing, in four or five years after planting the rooted cutting. The machinery and applian.ees for pickling the olive and making the oil are of an extreme simplicity. Both operations can be done in a very short time and they are so easy that no fanner, with ordinary cleanliness and care, can fail in turning out as good a product as is obtained anywhere else ; while this is far from being the,, case in wine Uiaking, which requires special knowledge, as well as long and tedious care before the product ifl in a satisfactory coudition to be Bold. some of his to olive cul- The gathel ing of the olive berries can be done gradually from November until March. By allowing them to dry in the barn, weeks can elapse before extracting the oil from them, which will enable a farmer to attend meantime to more pressing work ; but, if he so prefers, he can do it at once. Moreover, if he has no oil crusher and press, he can- ship his olives in sacks or boxes to any distance at a moderate rate of transportation, considering the value of the proilact undef-a sniajl volume, thus avoiding Uae misfortune of becoming the prey'Of local monopolies. How different it is with grapes! They are to be picked hastily when ripe; they must be pressed within a very short time; they cannot remain long, or travel far without experi-eJicing damage and loss; and if they are to be shipped to some distance to avoid the tyranny of monopolies, or because there is no wine cellar near by, the cost of freight, drayage, brokerage, short weight,; added to the cost of picking and delivering absorbs a good part of the value of a product which sold last year at an average of $20 per ton, and which is most likely t® gell much cheaper this coming Bciffion. On an equal acreage, and wlilen from eight to ten years old, the product of an olive grove will be worth several times that of a vineyard.; and under-the same volumo " the oil will be tefi times more valuable than wine, so that it can bo delivered in a more economical, manner. While with a four horse team a farmer will deliver about 600 gallons of wine per trip, representing a maximiim value of $160, he can, with the same team, deliver olive oil to a value of over $1U00. What aii. ccouoxay this represents. IMuch less cooperage, too, will be reijuired. Whereas, for a liundrcd acres vinf-y-jirJ, roona for 50,000 gallons nn'ght be calculated upon, 25',000 gallons will be all that can be expected from a similar acreage of olive, trees, aiid as tin tanks and eaiis are mostly used, it will cost less. Moreover, oil cam be made fi'OJu November to ^lareh, and sold shortly afterward to the merchant, who will clarify it himself, so that by spreading over the time of making it, a maximum of 8,000 or 10,00t) gallons of such packagc.s will be suliicient. And all this can be done and stored in woo Jen buildings of very moderate sfie^ while a wine cellar should bo built with stones or bricks, or bo exposed to the danger of having the wine damaged .or spoiled during the summer months, if it has not been sold befor^'that time. The gathering «f the olive crop, too, is a vei-y easy and cheap work.. The berries that have fallen to the ground are lirst picked, then tho tree is shaken and the branches struck with long poles to cause the fall of the remaining fruit. The few of them that may be found a little moulded, by too long contact with the earth, though good enough to fiiake good oil, are geiienilly set aj/uul t,(i be used only .with the last l)ressures, when f.he lower grade of . oil is made. Let us compare this easy and rapid work, where nothing is lost, witluthe picking of grapes, or the product of most fruit "trees, which necessitates a certaiii num-l)cr of hands at a given timp, and requires special care, so as not to spoil part of it, while the fruit found on the ground is not marketable, if not entirely worthless. When the oil is made, tho residues, or jnarcs, are used for fuel,^ manuring, or feed for horses and cattlo. There is, thus, iiot a farthing's worth of value in the prod.uct of the olive tree that is not turiied to some use. The bitterness of the fruit of tha olive, of its bark and leaves, offers by itself a certain amount of protection against the attacks of in-: sects and aniimals ; and, when the tree is planted on' hills, where it sliould bo, far froxnijjiioist-places which engender most of the diseases of fruit treesi it has not to dread such terrible enemies as those tliat assail the vine, from tho Oidiujii to the Phylloxera, wliich, alone, within the last twenty j^eaM, ' has brouglit down the French wine priWuetion from 85,000,000 hectoK-ters (about 2,000,000,000 gallons) to 25,t)00,000 (about.,625,000,000 gallons) and which crops slowly and relentlessly on aroong our California vinepards. : During the excessively dry eura-uiers which are oecassionally seen ^ in parts of California, when all other agricultural productions aie affected and diminished 'in consequence, the olive tree, this king of dry soils, where it vegetates best, will coiitinue to be-4oade(i adth fruit, just as in the seaBoqs moBt favorable to other cultures. The spring frosts, so disastrous , generally to valley land vineyards, seem to have no effect on the olive. The treje is often affected und even killed in the beet oil regionfi.of Europe ¿by excessive cold 8[«ill8j which are absolutely unknown in our (Continuecl ou •Slud page.) ■ ;
