Small Fruits Should Not Be
Planted Among Trees.

ing:— General Fnrm Notes.
It is not unusual to hear complaints of
small fruits not doing well when planted
in orchards of fruit trees. To those who
have given the subject any attention tho
wonder is that they grow to produce any
fruit at all, instead of doing fairly, as
they sometimes do. But few persons
have any id. a how much food a growing
tree takes from the soil. It is taken up,
of course, in a liquid state. Ifanyone
will but observe a lawn near where some
laige tree is growing it willbedemon
strated to him very soon. The grass will
droop and wither up for a distance as
great as the spread ofthe branches, while
the rest of tho lawn is still in a fresh state.
When this is observed a great many per
sons surmise? that the soil is poor, causing
a thin and poor sod. It is not that, but it
is on account of the great absorption of
moisture by the numerous roots of the

poorer than before. vVin n small fruits

It may occur that no clear place offers
for these plants, in which case th

roots demand. The soil, situation and
many other causes but the right one are
often blamed forthe ill-luck usually at

gardening operations these facts are
worthy of being kept in mind, it
occurs that flower borders are formed
along the skirt of a wood, and, of course,
with the worst possible success. The
stronger growth robs the weaker, which
is that of the shrubs and plants set in tho
border. Flower beds are met with under
. . where it is impossible for them to
thrive. In woods underbrush and flow
ers thrive, but it is because of tho food
and moisture which decaying leaves and
twigs afford them, and on sloping hills
there is always some moisture descend
ing from the higher ground. The place
to plant small fruits where they will do

Good bedding is as necessary for the

to protect against filth and permits of

The practice of drying the bedding in the
sun for the purpose <>i' using it again
should be condemned, as bedding once
saturated with liquid manure becomes
disagreeable, giving the stable an am
moniacal odor, which is sure to affect the
milk to a certain extent. Tiie best place
for bedding tiiat has been used is in the

One peculiarity of the Emerald Gem
cantaloupe is that as soon as it becomes
ripe it loosens its hold on the vine and
roils aw ay. Until this happens it is not
ripe. It does not indicate the degree of

j it is dark, but as it loosens its hold when
ripe, no difficulty is met with in deter

Busy Fruit-Growers iv a Pretty
Yolo Valley—Tancred and Its
Adjoining Farms.
Rob-rt A. and Neal D. Barker associated
themselves wit.h William McKay, all of Oak
land, v.ifha view of scarchins: out a suitable
location in which to engage in the pp
occupation of fruitgrowing. After vlstOng
many localities, they decided on the Capay
Valley, Yolo County, and the Rhodes tract at
Negotiations were opened with the Capay
Land Company, owning the trad in
question. With W. 11. ____„ the General
Ageat of that company, they arranged for the
purchase of about 220 acres of foothill land
This being more than they had thought of
taking for their own use, they spoke to a
number of friends about it. with the result
that the tract was divided anion-the follow
ing people: B. L. Ilickok, 40 acres; XV. T.
Barnett,2o acres; N.T.Greathead, 20 acres;
Mrs. L. Greathead, 2u acres; v>\ McKay, 20
acres; N. D. Barker, 20 acres; R. A. Barker,
20acres; J. P. Brownlee, 20acres; !■'. n. Has
lett. 10 acres: Joseph Barker, 10 acres; A. \V.
Kelly 10 acres, and Frederick Kelly, 10 acres.
So far th-s had been merely a private ven
ture of the gentlemen above named, but in
talkingup the question of dividing the land
already purchased, it was found that so many
more would like to join it than the area of the
purchase would admit of, that, it was sup.
gested on all hands, "Why not get some more
land and divide it up in the same way?"
Then followed the idea of a stock company to
take hold of a larger tract and arrange for the
cultivation ofthe whole of it, after subdividing
It according to the requirements of the sub"
ocrlbers. a provisional board was formed, a
prospectus Lssued,and finaily.on the sth oJ
June, 1890, the Western Co-operative Col
onization and Improvement Company was
duly registered and pro* ded to business,
with the following officers: President, Will
iam McKay; Vice-President, M. p. Brown;
Directors-H. c. Ellis, Charles Brooke and
R. A. Barker; Secretary and General Manager,
Neal 1). Barker; Solicitor, C. E. Snook; Treas
urer, First National Bank of Oakland
The balance of the tract, 373 acres, was par
chased. Aeontract was entered into for the
purchase ot a large number of fruit trees,
vine-, etc. This early purchase of trees was
the means of saving between $3,000 and
94,000 to the company, the prices in some
taving more than doubled since then.
The ideas which ihe prospectus set forth
have been but slightly modified and tho
progress of the company has been uninter
rupted. Those who went Into it doubtingly
have become enthusiastic, and almost all tho
members arranged to set out all their lands In
frail trees, etc., the first year. Consequently
In this, the first season, some 40,000 trees and
between 20.000 and 30,000 vines will bo
The satisfactory working of this scheme has
had the efffect of attracting considerable at
tention to the work of the Colony Company,
and a number of people are now desirous of
Joining in with them. An additional 200
acres have been added to the sixty acres
originally purchased.
For the company is predicted a very bright
future, as well as forthe beautiful valley in
which their operations are conducted. How
this marvelous little garden has come to be ao
long neglected is a puzzle to every one who
has visited it, but. one thing is very sure, and
that is that this neglect will never again bo
felt in the valley.
The fruits set out are mostly ofthe standard
varieties-peaches, apricots, Part lett
prunes, figs, raisin grapes, etc., while along
both sides of the avenues, throughout the
tract,walnuts will throw their graceful shade,
A considembtejnumber ot citrus trees are also
being set out; quiti a sufficient number to
demonstrate that these fruits can bo success
fully grown in ihe valley, about which th"
colonists appear to have no doubt, provided
proper care is given to the young trees. Neal
D. Barker, General Manager of tho company,
resides on the tract, and to his cue I 1 to be as
cribed much of the success of the venture.
Mention should be made of the town-site,
about which there Is a pleasant innovation
which might with profit bo followed by mora
ambitious places. A small park of some three
acres has been laid out right in the center ol
the town. This park it is proposed to beautify
by planting in it from time to time as many
ofthe beauties and curiosities of tree and
shrub life as may he obtained by diligent
search and a wise expenditure of money, it
is not expected that Tancred will ever'he a
large and busy city, but it is thought that it
can be made a very pleasant little place to
dwell In.
A petition has been circulated recently and
very largely signed, asking the county to- se
ccpt Island avenue, on the colony tract, as a
county road, and to build a bridge aero is
Cache Creek at this point, In order to give the
settlers on the ra.-il side of the creek access to
fancred Station. The Tancred colonists are
quite willing to give the necessary right of
way. and are very desirous of having a bridge
there, as the colony lands extend along both
sides of the stream. It is thought that it
would be a very wise expenditure ol public
money to grant them thK very necei sary im
provement, as the operations o; such com
panies are of widespread benefit to -the whole
county and state. The attractions and com
for b of the cities aro wed known, but to those
who are willing to settle on the land and show
that the country also affords attractions ami
comforts and ways of making monej
antiy, every inducement should be held forth.
The following is a list of the principal mem
bers of the Tancred Colony, with the number
of acres owned by each, and a (act worthy ol
mention is that iv each contract or deed is
sued by the Colony Company there is a pro
vision that no intoxicating liquor shall evei
be manufactured or «olu on the. land. The ap
parent success ofthe enterprise shows that
the ideas and plans of the colony, as set forth
in the prospectus some time ago, are not im
practicable: ('. T. Hull. Berkeley, 5 acres; XV.
