The soil in my Nursery is the same as that of the foot hill lands all around our Valley and trees transplanted from there will.nnd at South Riverside the same conditions under which they have grown here and will therefore go right on growing. This is a fact worth considering. Address GEO. H. CRAFTS, REDLANDS, CALIF. Deciduous Fruit Pays. George Harrison has this week sold his evaporated peeled peaches for 24 cents a pound. He had 6420 pounds of the evaporated fruit from four acres of 5-year-old trees, and hiis received a check for $1542.72 for the whole crop. That is at a rate of $384.68 an acre. Mr, Harrison says that his total expense of picking, slicing and evaporating the fruit, putting it in sacks and storing it has cost $175.45. He took unusual good care of his fruit, and has made-money for his work, and interest at the rate 22 per cent, on his investment. He informs us that the San Francisco firm to whom he sold his fruit says the indications are more than good that the same quality of fruit will be worth not less than 22 cents a pound, and perhaps even 30 cents &ext year.—Pomona Progress. Plant! Cultivate! The benefits of the floods in drowning gophers and squirrels, will in our opinion, nearly compensate for the damage done in this county, extensive as the loss is. It has been estim%ted that these rodents annually consumed a half a million dollars worth of property in way of grain and plants. Gentlemen who drove in across the plains report dead gophers and squirrels lying upon the plains by the hundred. . - Now, whenever traces of thBse vermin appear, farmers and or-chardists should camp on their trail until the pests are absolutely exterminated. The rain has wet the earth to a great depth and trees and plants set out now will make a growth sufficiently luxurious to surprise even the argonauts who look back and compare the present year of grace with the winter of 1849-50. Let each one of us plant a tree or a shrub and we will beautify the country and add materially to its wealth and prosperity. We will say nothing right now about trees increasing rainfall, but they do it all the same.—Porcu-Pine. , Make the Most of Life. Fi'om East to West.

There are many people who live a humdrum life, never even giving the true pleasures a chance to creep in and brighten their gloomy world. Nature has meantime provided us with senses which when cultivated atford the keenest pleasure, and which more than counter-balance the troubles and, despondencies with which every life is necessarily beset. The garden furnishes a source of ever increasing and never ending enjoyment, yet there are houses without gardens. Here may be found an ehtirely natural recuperation for body and mind, giving buoyancy of spirit, development of the finer senses, a calm, beautiful view of life,, and a relish for living which no other earthly creation pan; ^estow. A pleasant fhdughtfulness'and anticipation is awakened by the graceful, deliberate unfolding of a bud or development of a fruit. Appreciation, a rare faculty, is cultivated by the exquisiteness of an odor, the rare sprightfulnesB of a fruit, or the unusual crispness of a vegetable. The sense of odor absolutely revels in the odor of the orange blossom, the rose, the jassamine, and the violet, and in the rich, fruity ordors of Pomona's treasures. But above all is the sense of sight gratified. Here theie is opened up a world of appreciative and artistic possibilities which furnish the mind with exalted admiration for all things God h^s made. Withal, the gar^ den brings to man a restfulness of spirit, a satisfaction in living, a broad and.charitable view of life, all of which help to make him a more perfect and useful ceature.— Cal. Fruit Grower. From the Citrograph. A gentleman by the name of W. R. Whitson, of Asbeville, North Carolina, this fall made a trip to. California occupying nearly four weeks. In this time he traveled over 7,000 miles. Traveling continuously by rail this, would consume fifteen days, leaving him thirteen days for sight seeing. He speaks of visiting Los Angeles and San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Denver. And yet he is thoroughly competent to j udge about the wonderful possibilities of this most wonderful statel Just listen to him : What of California? Well, the state of California on the Pacific slope is,certainly a very fine country, naturally, but a very poor one for a farming man to move to now. The price of farming land is so inflated that no poor man can afford to buy, and no rich one either, if he expects to make interest on his money. The idea of paying from three to ten hundred dollars an acre for lands on which to grow wheat, grapes, pears and the like is preposterous. From what I could learn I say nearly all the farming industries in California are being overdone. Everybody seems to understand this, and in my opinion ten years from now the lands on which are grown the sweet grape, pears, oranges, etc., will not command the money they now bring. Without saying anything about the state of California, a state four times as large as North Carolina, with a thousand miles of sea coast and extending north and south equal to the distance from Ashe-ville to Boston, producing every known cereal and fruit, somewhere within her borders, and almost every known mineral, let us narrow our vision to the one county in which we live. We find here almost every climate, fromjtheltropical to the arctic. Persons of the county are below lilie' sea level, while the highest peak is more than 12,000 feet above. A portion is irreclaimable desert, while other portions are as rich farming land as lies out doors. We produce all the cereals and almost every know fruit. We have found almost every known metal within our borders. WereluiTifi'p^^ wall built around this one countj', we would not only belenabled to live, but we could produce every luxury desired, both for table and personal use. ' , As to his assertion that "farming" land in California sells for $300 to $1,000 an acre, if he possesses a spoonful of brains or an atpm of common sense, he knows the assertion is false and knew it when he made it. Farming land in profusion can bo purchased nt from $15 to $50 an acre. Fruit land suitable for gtapep and deciduous fruits, runs from $40 to $100 an acre—sometimes reaciiing $150 to $200, but only irt oxccptionally good raisin localities. Orange land with plenty of water for irrigation can yet be bought for $200 to $300 an acre, but prices will not long remain ai these low figures. When one stops to figure up the profits to be realized in California for these different characters of land, we make the assertion, and defy successful contradiction, that California lands, to-day are the cheapest in the whole world, taking everything into cot)sideration. As for the good North Ciirolina citizen, whose remarks we have quoted, if he will come to California and spend four years in traveling over the state, ho will know much more than he does now, and will be very far from knowing all, then.

"Can I sell you a rug to-day, ma'am?" he said politely, as she opened the door Avith an I'd-like-to-put-you-through-a-clothes-wringer-fbr-bringing-me-down-stairs expression on her face. "No." "These rugs, ma'am—" "Didn't I tell you I didn't want any? Are you deaf?" "No, ma'am, I'm not deaf. I wouldn't have bothered you, only the woman across the street in No. 12 told me that it wpuld be a waste of time for me to come over here, as you were too poor to have anything on your parlor floor but rag carpet. People don't always tell the truth, and from the" neat and handsome appearance of your hoa»e inside I did not believe her, so I called' anyway. I think she's watching me out of the window.

The Citrograph has takon the trouble to study the premium list of the northern citrus fair, which with accompanying comments it gives as follow, to give the public an idea of what are doomed -'citrus fruits" in that part of the state : Thirty-five premiums for oranges aggregating $1276. Five premiums for lemons, $75. Three premjums for limes, $45. Two premiums for bananas, $7.50. Three premiums for Shaddocks and Pumalos, $10. Three premiums for olives, $22.50. Three premiums for olive oil produced in North California, $45. Three premiums for persimmons, $10. Three premiums for pomegranates, $G. Three premiums for grapes, $10. Five premiums for raisins, $52.50. Three premiums for dried figs, $30. Three premiums for dried prunes. $22.50. Two premiums for dates, $7.50. Ifive premiums for dried fruits other than raisins, figs and prunes, $75. Five premiums for preserved and canned fruits, $130. Three premiums for apples, $30. Three premiums for pears, $18. Three premiums for almonds, $18. Three premiums for walnuts, $18. Three preminums for "largest and most varied exhibit," $100. Three premiums for minerals, $45. Three premiums for natural woods, dressed or polished, $18. Three premiums for cut flowers, $30. Three premiums for most tastefully arriingod exhibit of citrus fruits, $100. Two premiums for best exhibit of nuts, $35. Here we have 115 premiums, only 4G of which can by any stretch of courtesy be called citrus fruits. The state appropriated $2500 for a northern citrus fair and we find less that $1500 used for that purpose, Uie remailider going for deciduous fruits, nuts, woods and minerals. It is a wonder horstí racing is not tacked in somewhere under thu head of "citrus speed program." ........But the.deadest.give, away. of. the whole scheme is" that no competition is to be allowed outside of their own district. Southern California entered into competition with the whole world at New Orleans several years ago and came ofi" first best. The northern citrus belt is afraid to compete with the state."

The irrigation tax in the Anaheim Irrigation district is being rapidly paid. The total tax amounted to over $10 000, of which amount the California Southern will pav $1,461.36, Southern Pacific $779.59. the Stearns Rancho company $1,410.93 and the Fuller-ton company $259.90. The largo taxpayers will pay.—Times-Index. Adarces from the Rio de Janeiro state that the comn)erce of that city is paralyzed, and affairs are rapidly going from bad to worse. The Chamber of Commerce has protested to the Government on a proposed export duty of 4 per cent, on coffee. Matthew Rogers, of Westminster, recently obtained from a five acre patch of potatoes, 900 sacks, for which he refused seventy-five cents a sack. If the seventy-five cents had been accepted, the five acres would have brought him $675 or $135 per acre. Two crops a year, whigh is not uncommon for California, would net the producer a nice little sura. We not only have the home market to supply with potatoes, but San Diego and all that southern country ns well, which insures a large consumption at remunerativo prices. — Orange News.
