The northeast corner of Monroe and Third avenue changed - hands twice within three days last week. The prop erty includes three lots with a front age of 150 feet on both streets. There are no buildings on it. A week ago Saturday Dr. K. G. Angeny and J- A. Moore bought the property for $6000, or $40 a front foot. It was purchased from W. H. Pat rick who owns the lot opposite on Monroe street and Is now building a $4500 house on It. Dr. Angeny and Mr. Moore sold the property the following Monday at a big advance to the Tonto Investment company. Even at the price which the investment company paid r it the lots are still considered to be a shade under the normal valuations as deter mined by the prices of adjoining prop erties. - The rise in property within two blocks of the Federal site has been phenomenal in the past two years. It was about two years ago that W. H. Patrick bought half of the block In which the present sale was made for $6500 and he Is now realizing a large return from the sale of the property In parcels. . J. A. Moore also sold during the week a 50-foot lot on North Third avenue above Bennitt Lane to Ray DeMund for $775. Mr. Moore bought this lot ten months ago for .$550 and cleared 40 per cent on his investment in that time. Mr. DeMund will build a home on It and has had plans drawn for that purpose. ' Another lot belonging to Mr. Moore on Fifth avenue, south of Bennitt Lane was sold at a bargain price. The pur chaser will build on it. The Page Hanlon company have made a number of deals in ranch land during the week but on account of the usual delay at tending the drawing up of the deeds the details are not given' out. WILL TRY TO RAISED ALLIGATOR PEARS A new horticultural Importation In to the valley Is the alligator pear, or avocado. J. H. Fleming has Just re ceived three dozen of these trees from Porto Rico. - There isn't a more delicious ' fruit known than the alligator pear. It may be used for salads with a!t and pep per and a little sugar on It, or it ir.ay be eaten st breakfast like urape fruit, or it may be takn at any time for its medicinal qualities. It is great food but as medicine. The alligator pear ha3 never been ly esteemed in Mexico, not only, as raised in the valley, and as far as known this is ihe first importation of the trees here. Whether or not they will grow in this climate re mains to be seen, but anyone who will take the trouble and bear the expense of importing new fruit trees into the valley for experimental pur poses deserves the highest credit The alligator pear may find here just the right soil and just the right climate, and if that should happen to be the case, a wide field for their cul tivation is opened at once, for they are in great demand everywhere that they are obtainable and command the highest prices. They bring from 25 to 50 cents each in the eastern markets. There is said to be one of the trees bearing in Los Angeles, and all of its fruit is bought up by a local physician for medicinal purposes. Efforts: have been made to raise the alligator pear in the valley from seed, but always without success. It is to be hoped that the new trees imported by Mr.. Fleming will find themselves at home In the valley and flourish here.
