RATES $2 TO $3 PER DAY, an essay of great ikteke9t to orange growers. J. H. Fawqet^ Manager», O. A. Smith, Proprietor. There is probably no Èetter authority on citrus fruit culture tha^Hon. George Rice, of this city.' Some time ago a Tribune representative asked Mr. Rice to give a condensed statement of his ideas on the subject, and the result is herewith given. To the prospective as well as the experienced "orange grower the paper will prove of great value, if attention is paid to the hints contained in it : There is a facination ijn thé "very name of orange groyver, and to the new arrival it is the' dream of his fondest hopes. The reality, especi-all with a "bug" ridden orchard of oranges, lemons or limes, is a nightmare to the owjier. The writer takes it for granted that the nursery stock has been grown under the most favorable circumstances ; that the trees are thrifty, clean and healthy, grown on the home place or near by, and do not cost to exceed !f 1 each, ready to transplant in the orchard. The location of an orchard of citrus trees is one of the greatest importance, and should be as nearly free from frost as possible, warm, but where the circulation of air is free without danger of windstorms. The soil should be deep, rich and warm, no hard-pan nor any water within ten or fifteen feet of the surface, with a natural drainage ; a sandy loam, or rich light-colored soil is best; gravelly soil is in most localities very suitable, providing extra water and fertilizers are used. , The great desideratum is sufficient water, not for forcing the young trees, which should bo grown , with as little water as possible, but for the more mature and fruiting trees an ample supply of water is a necessity. One inch to ten acres is an abundance in some localities, while in others one inch to five acres is not enough, a point toat must be decided by the would-be-fruit-grower of an orchard, for if treated more at length it would require a volume on the subject. The irrigation may be done in two practical ways, i. e., by the basin system or by allowmg the water to run slowly in small furrows the whole length of the orchard. The latter method is preferable, not allowing the water to stand or drain against the trunk of a tree, and immediately after cultivation is necessary to thoroughly loosen and pulverize the soil around the trunk. The time between irrigation must be governed by the appearance of the trees, never allpjwing the trees to wilt. At the same time care should be taken not to irrigate too much so as to make the ground cold, soggy or sour. The Washington Navel should be the prit^^ipal tree |)lanted with a good many small St. Michaels, next in value to the Navels ; a few of the Mediterranean and a lenser number of Maltese Blood, excelsior and sour seedlings.' As to lemon buds on orange stock—<iistance 23x23 to 30x30—I would recommend the Eureka only, as it has so far proven to be the best, in every instan^ at fairs or by analysis or in the fiiarket. Limes are so tender that only a few localities can be relied upon to produce them successfully. Plow deep I deep I deep 1 after thorough leveling, so that irrigation can be easily done ; the deep plowing breaks up all the old gopher runs and prepares the soil for the young and tender roots to «make a good start. Besides it allows the rains to sink deep into the soil, storing up moisture fpr feeding tjhe growing trees without irrigation. Never resort to deep plowing but onoe each year, at the commencement of the rainy season, and avoid plowing up any roots of the trees and use great ' precaution in not breaking the bark on the trees nor to tear away the surface roots. The citrus trees send their roots down deep after food and moisture with a mass of surface roots near the body of the trees. These strong, deep ' roots have many lateral roots the ends of which are like a bunch of fringe reaching in every direction in search of nourishment. / Follow with ehallo^Y but frequent cultivation, living the top of the ground finely pulverized, and never hard or bated, holding the moisture, thus attracting from ,tjie atmosphere and from the depths belôw the moisture, the very life of the citrus tree. It has been demonstrated,-time and again, as clear as a problem in geometry, that shallow cultivation—a thorough and frequent pulverizing of the surface —18 the best mode and needs no argument in these few words. ■Pruno to give the trees a.proper shape, avoiding crotches, and always with a leader. Remove decayed or useless branches, to admit air and sunshine all through the tree; grow the limbs low.. Prune early in the season, and never in very hot weather. Make all cuts clean and close, so the bark can easily close over the cut. Visit orchards that are well pruned and take lessons, or employ a practical man who has a good reputation to prune for you. I call more attention to the subject of fertilizing in my essay than all others, in the hope that our fruit-growers will take this as a warning and commence to apply any and all kinds of waste matter about tlie farm to the trees that are fruiting. See the small oranges on many large trees that would be large, juicy, salable fruit if judicious fertilizing was resorted to. It is better to keep the soil up to its original fruitful standard, beginning at the very start while the trees are growing. The well-fed, vigorous orange or lemon tree, properly pruned to admit of air and sun, will be but little troubled and slightly injured by insect pests. I detest above all other persons an alarmist. I do not wish to scare any one, but the language cannot be uttered too strongly warning the grower of citrus fruits against the many injurious insects that infest the orange, lemon and lime, and especially the cottony cushion scale. Once this terrible inSect has gained a place in your orchard it means a ceaseless war to keep it in check, as extermination is impossible. The orchard that has been most thoi-oughly treated to-day, killing every insect in sight or to be found, will in a few weeks show quite a good representation of lively insects bent on the destruction of the orchards. Spraj', spray, spray —"eternal vigilance" ^—keep the scale away; if you hdve none— avoid it as you would small-pox, yellow fever or cholera. For remedies and best plan of fighting the bugs see bulletin No. 2, issued by the Horticultural Commission of this county. The greatest trouble, oven after you have cultivated, irrigated, pruned, fertilized..... and sprayed (sprfty even for black scale), and unlfiss you can raise a fair sized orange, a medium sized lemon, arid they are both clean and bright, you need not go to market. After all this work is done the fatal mistake is in marketing. The fruit-growers (and I mean growers only, no dealers), of Southern California should have an organization, with honest, capable men at the head, to manage. Each section or . locality should have a sub-organization of the central one, the boxes should be bought by the train load or ship load and delivered to the fruitgrower at the minimum price. Cooperate with some strong, honest commission house, or establish agencies directly, so that the central association could direct the shipment to such markets as needed the fruit, where the demand was greate'f(t; in short, where the most money'could be realized for the consignmeixit./ Thus no markets would be glMted. The sub-organizations could distribute bcjies, wrappings, at net cost, grade and ship—only shipping in; carload lots, as directed by the central office. This is only a hint on the subject, the important one, and the one that we leave with your citrus fruit growers to solve and carry into successful operation, if you intend to make a profit from growing citrus fruits. My 2,000 or less words'^are said. If I have said one word that will do some good I am satisfiedv-r-L. A; Tribune.- Palm Valley Water Co.

He is the man to whom Grocly gave the ,oft-quoted advice: "Go west, young man, and grow up with the country," more than a quarter of a century ago. The advice was heeded and to-day Mr. Grinnell is one of the leading men of his State. He never fails to give Mr. Greeley full credit for what he has profited by it.—Riverside Enterprise. Who owns the Seventh street Railway, i^ the question agitating the public of Riverside. It was built by J. A. Studabecker uijder a franchise obtained from the city in consideration of $20,000 to be paid when the road was completed or at the end of two years. To secure the payment of the $20,000, tho city took a lien on the franchise, roitd bed, rolling stoOk, etc., none of whiiîh Mr. Studabecker then had except the frinchiij«i; Now a nuri.-ber of people to whom Mr. Studa-becker is indebted for labor done, and materials furnished sue the city and Mr. Studabecker jointly for payment. It appears that the road has been built without the expenditure of a dollar by the builder and it seems to be a question who owns the road. Opinion of an JEmminent Horticulturist. To the question—Etoes this country meet your expectation? Secretary Ragan of the American Horticultural Society, replied to a Riverside Press reporter as follows : The truth is that before coming here I had but a faint conception of the beauty, wealth and prosperity of your valley and this end of the State. No man c»n sit do<Fn in the East and convey a correct idea of this country to a person who never saw it. ■ Language fails. I had no idea you could get together such^ a collection of citrus fruits.
