Bntertd at the PoaWtffle* In Lordibnrg u •«•ond CUm Matter.THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 1888. \ Cnltifttitii of Fir Treof. Fig trees should be planted as soon as received, os drying of the roots will injure or kill them. They slmuld, therefore, be kept moist and covered with sacks in carrying them to the field. Allow them tn branch out at from one to two feet from the ground, but not from the same point of the standard or stem, but one above another. This will prevent splitti!»g of large branches.    ^ Never top the limbs of branches, as it will seriously injure the fruit. . 'thinning out,^cutting interfering, or too closely growing branchea, is all the pruning that should be allowed to fig trees. The white Adriatic ia generally considered the ^est. It is as superior to the common fig as is the Bartlett pear to a seedling, and becomes, when dried, fully equal to the celebrated “Erbelle” fig of commerce. Do not irrigate when the fruit is ripening^ nor later than September, then the wood will harden sufiicientlv to resist the frost. Fig-raising is ae profitable as orange-growing in California. A four-year-old tree will average 2C®^ound‘» of fruit, and, with eighty trees to the acre, make a yield of 16,000. which at 2^ cents per pound makes |400to the acre. By .drying and maketing the fruit the return would be nearly or quite double.—-Ex.-iRcal Estate BASSETT’S AGENCY.flOW! NOW! NOW! Now is the golden opportunity. Take advantage of it.

He says: “There is but one California in the world. There is nowhere else to go in the winter. Travelers who have been in Southern Italy, in Northern Africa, in Sicily, in Greece, in Maderia, in Jamacia, in Bogoto, in the piney woods, are perfectly opeh in Idling you this. There is no climate like it. There is nothing that will grow anywhere in the w’Orld—except, perhaps, certain great staples—tliat will not grow there in great abundance and    perfection—orapges,    lemons, iimes, peaches, nccterines, grapes, figs, almonds, olives^.Maderia nuts, every edible vegetable known to woman.
