three most beautiful valleys in the
The above sentiment was the praise
accorded Santa Clara Valley by Bayard
Taylor, and no one who has had the good
fortune to become at all familiar with this
section, so frequently referred to as the
"garden spot of the world," can fail to
find an echo in their hearts of the words
above quoted. Nature has indeed been
lavish of her bounties here and seems to
wear a perpetual smile as thougn pleased
with her every touch. The satisfaction
expressed in word and manner by the
residents of Santa Clara Valley with their
environments is readily excused, as in
point of location, climatic and other ad
vantages necessary for the prosperity of a
people this valley is unsurpassed.
Santa Clara County, while being an in
land county, is situated at such a conve
nient distance from San Francisco Bay as
to receive the benefit of the invigorating
sea breezes, which the beautiful Santa Cruz
mountains that border this valley so pleas
antly temper, and no day in summer fails
to bring these invigorating and life-giving
breezes. The population of Santa Clara
County borders closely on 60,000, a popu
lation gained in 4he last generation, and
more emphatic than words can tell, their
prosperity is shown by an increase in the
total county valuation from $40,000,000 in
1886 to $56,000,000 in the present year.
As to the source of this wealth,
one has but to drive over its
miles of splendid roads upon which $100,
--000 is annually expended for sprinkling
alone, and note the thousands of acres of
orchards, representing every known fruit
grown, the various fruit-dryers and .can
neries, worked to their fullest capacity;
the vineyards and well-equipped wineries
scattered throughout the country, the
dairies, which for size and completeness
are not often equaled, and many other in
dustries which these conditions call forth,
and wonder succeeds wonder at the ap
parently never-ending vista, yet one is
compelled frequently to exclaim:
"What golden wealth," and needs no
further explanation of tne Assessor's
figures. A mistaken idea, however, and
one unfortunately too prevalent in the
minds of Eastern people, according to the
statement of an officer of the Board of
Trade here, is that the grand achieve
ments in the fruit industry in this county
ere due almost entirely to the soil and
climate and very little to the labor and
intelligence of the orchardist. To the in
tending settler it will be well that this
view will find no lodgment in his mind,
for whil" the soil and climate, as has been
said, are as favorable to .he cultivation of
fruit as that of any other locality in the
State, yet the best results have been
reached only where the highest intelli
gence, the most painstaking labor and the
most persistent efforts have been dis
This is a point upon which too much
emphasis cannot be placed, for while na
ture is ever kind yet her reward is only to
the industrious. It might be well at this
juncture to call attention to a frequent
cause of worry and embarrassment to the
fruit-grower, one responsible perhaps
more than any other cause for the failure
of the orchardist's hopes, and that is the
ambition of many to own large orchards
on a small investment in the belief that
they can pull througti the youthful period
of the orchard and in tbe end be comfort
ably established through the disposal of
an extensive fruit crop. Why msn fall
into this error it is difficult to explain, as
many of these are men who have been en
gaged in mercantile pursuits, but who
would never have expected to do a busi
ness of $100,000 per year on a capital of
$10,000, and yet this is just what many are
attempting, with the result that they are
hampered in all their efforts through a se
ries of years, and eventually disappointed.
There is indisputable evidence of the
profit in fruit culture anywhere in the vast
fertile valley, and thi3 is to be found in
the prosperity of those engaged in it and
tbe largely increased acreage in orchards
each year. The following figures will be
of interest in this particular: ~
The following is the number of fruit
frees growing in the county:
Prune, other kinds
The total number ot bearing fruit trees
in the county is placed at 2,641,737; non
bearing trees, 1,933,804; grand total of fruit
trees in county, 4,575,541. Tbe increase in
bearing French prune trees in 1896 over
1895 is 70,913. The increase in peach trees
this year over 1895 is 23,930.
While the above list tells its own story
as to the adaptability of Santa Clara
County for the growth of fruit of every
kind, yet this is pre-eminently the center
for prunes of the very highest quality,
the peculiar climatic conditions demanded
by this choice fruit being found here to a
degree not obtained elsewhere in the
world. This statement contains no exag
geration, as can be easily and satisfactorily
No other fruit is so highly and uni
versally recommended by physicians as a
health diet as is the prune, and it is little
wonder that its culture is receiving tbe
attention given to it by orcbardists of this
valley. In order. to give our readers a
clearer idea of what is represented in the
yield of the immense acreage of Santa
Clara County, or a portion of it at least,
we append the following table:
Arjd while decreases from the figures of the
output for the previous year are the rule, the
remarkable increase of over 14,000,000 pounds
in shipments of dried prunes lor the season of
1895, as compared with 1894, goes a long way
toward making; up the decrease in shipment of
all kinds of fruit, wine and garden seed.
The figures of prune shipments are greater
than for any previous year. During the twelve
months from July 1, 1893, to June 30, 1894,
the shipments amounted t0 38,704,350 pounds,
and were the heaviest on record for any season

at that time. During the past season ending
June 30 last the shipment of prunes amounted

pounds greater than during the season oi 1893.

In the foregoing we have endeavored to
demonstrate the claims of Santa Clara
County as a spot favorable for homes and
investment, but in addition it affirms its
right to a place at the very head of all the
health resorts of the State on account of
its equable climate and its many and
varied mineral springs, the analysis of
which is equal to those of the world-famed
springs of Europe. Here are to be found
Vichy Hot Springs, sulphur, soda and
many others, and innumerable cures tes

The position of Santa Clara County as

No article on Santa Clara County is
complete without special reference to San
Jose, the county seat, and which once vis
ited can never be forgotten on account of
its beautiful broad thoroughfares and
well-paved streets, so prettily adorned
with graceful palms and shade trees.
In its very business center is St. James
Park with" its fountain, large shade trees
and well kept lawns, and opposite is the
Hall of Records, a building which would
do honor to any city, and adjoining is the
Courthouse, an imposing structure which
cost $400,000. Recently erected is a post
office building costing nearly $200,000 and
which is indeed "a thing of beauty," and
facing this is the City Hall and Free Li
brary. Its business blocks and banking
institutions give the city a decidedly pros
perous and substantial air, which condi

In concluding this article too much
praise cannot be accorded the directors of
the Board of Trade for their intelligent
and untiring efforts to aQvance the inter
ests or the county. The board consists of
Colonel T. R. Weaver, president, who,
although a newcomer to the county, has
done much to unite the fruit-growers of
the valley into a working organization,
and C. J. Steeple, treasurer, and A. C.
Darby, C. M. Hatcher. J. D. Miner, Wil
liam Osterman, S.E. Smith, A. O. Bacon,
L. M. Hale and J. P. Fay, secretary.
The Board of Trade maintains an excel
lent permanent exhibit, conveniently situ
ated, and is the only bureau of informa
tion in the county. It distributes large
quantities of statistical matter throughout
the East and answers multitudinous in
quiries from intending settlers. Take it
all together, California may indeed feel a
pride in the beautiful Santa Clara Valley.
OF THE STATE.
Major-General N. T. James, division
commander of the National Guard, has
resolved to ascertain definitely whether
the ammunition supplied to the troops is
of the highest grade. He has determined
to promote efficiency in rifle practice in
the guard, and, as a preliminary step, will
see that ammunition is supplied that can
be relied upon.
Following is a copy of an order issued
from division headquarters last Saturday:
Regimental inspectors of rifle practice
and those officers under whose personal
direction and inspection the annual pre
liminary rifle practice of this year has
been held (including Naval Battalion,
cavalry troops and Signal Corps) will, as
soon after the receipt of this order as is
practicable, make out (in duplicate) and
submit to these headquarters the report of
sucb practice under the following head
ings: (A) The kind of ammunition used,
its quality and cost. (B) A summary of
the number of men in each organization
who are entitled to shoot, and the number
actually present. (C) A summary of the
number of men who qualifiea for 60, 80
and 90 per cent.
These reports will be accompanied by
such suggestions as would, in the opinion
of the officers making the reports, benefit
and encourage rifle practice in the Na
tional Guard. Brigade inspectors will
closely examine these reports and indorse
thereon such remarks and suggestions as
would, in their opinion, benefit the prac
tice, and forward the reports to headquar
ters, with as little aelay as possible. It is
desired by the division commander that
the above reports shall be full and ex
haustive and shall contain sucb recom
mendations as may be considered neces
sary to ehequrago the rifle practice of the
Guard, which is of the most vital im
At Sacramento weekly drills in the Sec
ond Infantry are no longer tasks to be
shirked, and under the existing regula
tions they command eood attendance.
The friendly rivalry existing between the
two companies tend to excite the ambi
tion of both officers and privates. Out. of
a membership of eighty Company G
turned out sixly-five "strong at drill on
last Monday night, many being away on
summer vacations. Captain Steams of
this company having reported Privates
Pierce and Luttrell as having violated the
military rules by non-attendance at
weekly drills, a court-martial has been
called by order of Colonel Gutdrie, com
manding the Second Brigade, to be held
on the 17th inst. Captain Shoemaker of
Company E has been detailed to preside.
B Cavalry Troop is considering a camp
ing trip to be made in regular campaign
ing order, and will settle the question at
its meeting to be held, next Wednesday
evening. It is the intention to make a
raid in the direction of Stockton, leaving
Sacraiaenjo mounted and conveying full
supplies. The members of the troop are
displaying great interest and pride in
their drills and equipments, and bid fair
to become the banner troop of the State.
But for downright hard work, prompt
ness at drill and individual interest the
members of the Third Brigade Signal
Corps, under the command of Lieutenant
Fred Martin, are entitled to the palm.
The men have a laudable ambition to
outrank all the other corps in everything,
and are in a fair way to accomplish their
object. It is a rare thing for any member
to miss drill, and it is their intention
to institute a series of monthly field
drills, to be held on the last Sunday of
each month. The members will leave
Sacramento mounted, in light marching
order, and will spend the day in drill and
cutlass practice. They have introduced a
number of telegraph instruments into their
headquarters and are practicing assidu
ously to perfect themselves in the use of
them. This is without doubt one of the
best drilled heliograph corps in the State,
and Lieutenant Martin reports that he
never has to infuse any enthusiasm among
the members, but on the contrary has to
restrain them in their work.
Company B, Filth Infantry, of San Jose
is in a better condition to-day than ever
before. Since the removal of the company
into its new armory on Market street, be
tween Santa Clara and St. John,~much
enthusiasm has been displayed by the men
in the affairs of the company, and attend
ance at meetings has been more regular
and much larger. The membership is over
sixty, and the average attendance at drills
and meetings is forty. During the past
few months the company has increared
rapidly, from one to three recruits being
received each Monday evening.
Next Saturday evening, August 29, Com
pany B will march to Alum Rocic Park,
seven miles east of towu, returning Sun
day evening. The start will be made from
the armory at 10 p. M. The men will carry
their haversacks, canteens, cups, etc., and
mess in true army style. Cooks will be
detailed from the ranks. The company
has made this trip several times, and the
boys enjoy it immensely.
Much interest is being manifested in the
monthly tareet shoots, and the men are
greatly improving in shooting under Ser
geant L. B. Wood, the inspector of rifle
Last Sunday there was a prize shoot, in
winch forty prizes were donated by mer
chants. Sergeant C. E. Hubdack secured
first prize with a ?core of 43. Private
White won second prize with a score of 42.
Sergeant Wood was third with 41. Ser
geant Hubback is the crack shot of the
Company B will elect officers next
month. In all probability Captain Part
ridge will be, re elected, as he is well liked,
and under his captaincy the company has
made much progress. It was due to his
efforts that the company secured its new
armory. There is no opposition to the re
election of First Lieutenant J. J. Adel, and
Second Lieutenant W. Searle is scheduled
for his old place.
Company B. First Infantry, of San
Francisco went into camp yesterday at
Los Gatos for a week. The tents are
pitched in Shore's Grove.
Company E. Third Infantry, of Santa
Rosa, is in a flourishing condition. The
company numbers sixty-six men not in
cluding commissioned officers, all of whom
take a deep interest in their duties. They
have a comfortable armory on Hinton
avenue containing drillroom, dressing
rooms, reading-rooms, officers' quarters,
etc., in which the members are wont to
gather several times a week for recreation
and pleasure. The attendance at regular
meetings and lor Monday night drill is
unusually good, Company E having
always ranked high in percentage of at
The competitive shoot of the battalion
is still undecided, Company C of Petaluma
having won the fiist shoot held at Peta
luma, Santa Rosa winning the second
event on the home range by one point.
The deciding trial will take place at Peta
luma September 1.
Captain Horen has recommended the
promotion of five non-commissioned offi
cers as follows: Corporal Roger P. Smith
as sergeant, and Privates George W. Koh-
Jer, Jessie A. Craft, Paul Coulter and
Frederic Schaupp as corporals. It is prob
able that- Company C of Petaluma will
join Company E in a summer camp.
A committee of which First Lieutenant
Bean is chairman has been appointed to
confer with a like committee from Com
pany C, and a report will probably be
made at the next meeting. There is an
unusual amount of dramatic and musical
ability among the members of Company C,
and many fine home entertainments are
Napa's Company H, Fifth Infantry, Is
in a nourishing condition. There are now
fifty-eight names on the company roll and
several applications for membership,
which have not yet been acted upon.
The company was formerly Battery B,
Second Artillery, commanded by Colonel
William Macdonald, and during the strike
in 1894 did service in the "West Oakland
railroad yards with the other batteries of
the regiment. In commemoration of the
anniversary of the return from the yards,
the members, ex-members of the company
and invited guests assembled at the
armory on the evening of J uly 27 last and
sat down to a banquet prepared for the oc
casion. Captain F. G. Easterby gave
remin iscences of camp life, especially in

July 1 the election for company offi
cers was held. Captain F. G. Easterby and
First Lieutenant H. H. Muller declined re
election, and so the following were elected
to fill the vacancies: Sergeant F. W.
Bush, captain ; First Sergeant H. L. Gunn,
first lieutenant, and Sergeant Hoff second
lieutenant. The members of the company
deeply regret that Captain Easterby and
Lieutenant Muller will he with the com
pany in an official capacity but a short
time longer, for these officers by their
persevering efforts had gained the love
and respect of all the men.
The company, which for three years of
its existence bas used one of the larger
apartments in the Williams block on
Main street as its armory, moved recently
to Hoff' s ball, at the lower end of Main
street, where it now has ample room for
expansion and growth.
A broad stairway leadi up to a spacious
landing on the second floor, from which
first opens off the officers' private apart
ments. These are well lighted, and the ven
tilated rooms contain private lockers of
the officers and are well furnished with
tables and comfortable chairs.
The main assembly-room, which is used
for lounging and reading purposes, is 35x
75 feet in size. This room is furnished
with pooltables, a library, tables on which
are the leading periodicals of the times,
and pictures appropriate to an armory,
forming a most pleasing and interesting
feature of the company's new apartments.
Tbe large drill hall, which is 100 feet
long and 60 feet in width, is the feature of
the new armory.
On the evening of September 9 a grand
opening ball will be given by the com
pany. The committee of arrangements is
making every effort to have it successful
in all particulars. It is expected lhat
some of the brigade and regimental
officers will be present.
Company D, Fifth Infantry, of San
Rafael went into camp at Mill Valley last
The company expects to h,ave an elec
tion for lieutenant in a month. Second
Lieutenant F. J. Murray is spoken of as a
likely man for first lieutenant, and Ser
geant A. N. Boyen for second lieutenant, if
he will accept. There is anticipation of
target range practice next year. A suit
able site for the range is a tract below the
San Pedro landing, which the company
would be glad to purchase at a nominal
figure, if they were able to raise the
money by subscriptions from private
citizens. Another suitable site is on the
marsh, south of the town, between the
canal and the old toll road. This, how
ever, would involve greater expense before
it could be used. The chamoion medal
for target practice this month was won by
J. F. Robinson, private.
At Merced Company H, Sixth Infantry,
is located. The attendance at drills, which
is always somewhat light during the sum
mer months, when many of the men are in
the harvest fields, is picking up again.
After the regular drill asocial time will be
indulged in by the members of the com
pany. Music and refreshments are on the
The last regimental orders announced
the promotion of the following privates:
Leo Muller, D. C. Jones, D. F. Griffin, E.
Jackman and George C. Adrain to be cor

also discharge Serjeant C. T. Wright,
Corporal Roy vonden Heuveland Privates
Frank King, William Griffin and C. D.
Radcliffe, for expiration of term. New
members this month are Emery J. Buck
ley and Manuel Martinez.
Captain Kittle, A. D. C. Third Brigade,
passed through Merced last week on his
way to Minturn on 4 visit to old friends.
Company H will parade in Stockton
with the entire regiment on the occasion
of thej Native Sons' Admission day cele
Salinas is fortunate in having one of ihe
mounted companies of the National Guard.
Troop C, commanded by Captain Burke,
will soon be one of the best drilled com
panies in the State. Seriieant Donohoe of
D Battery, Fifth Artillery, U. S. A., is in
Salinas on a three months' furlough, ami
is giving nightly instruction to Troop C.
He is an excellent tactician and drillmas
ter, and his efficient work for the next
thref months will place the soldiers above
the average of the National Guard com
panies of the State.
The new armory building will be com
pleted the last of this month, and will be
formally opened by Troop C September 9.
The building is a 2-story structure, 45x130
feet, built of Arizona sandstone and brick,
and was designed especially for Troop O.
The members of the troop are determined
to give a good report of themselves, as the
number in attendance at regular drills, av
eraging sixty-five, will show.
