Newly Secured Tracts East
ami West of City Among
Createst Keal "Estate
Deals Ever liccordcd in
This Citv
The three biggest real estate deals
that have been made in the Salt
River Valley since the first (if this
year, and perhaps the most import
ant that have ever been made in the
valley in importance to the people,
wire the sales to the city of Phoe
nix of the three park sites. These
were bought after the property hold
ers of Phoenix had voted at the lale
i lection to pay $2.1,nijo for new play
grounds ami rest grounds to be
owned and operated by the city.
The first and largest of the tracts
to be filed on by the city was the
f'hnsty tract. It is located a short
distance from the fair grounds and
c'ose enough to the car line to be
available at all times for picnics and
like occasions. It will be improved
extensively by the city, but the work
will not commence for some time
all the park funds voted at the elec
tion having been expended for the
three sites. However, Mr. Christy
slated that he would build a road
through the tract, and about it, and
with the present growth of trees at
the spot, it is already an ideal spot
for the holding of picnics and out
door parties.
Eastlake park, which was the sec
ond park site filed on by the city,
was purchased from the Phoenix
Street Railway company. It is that
piece of land at the east end of
the Washington street car line, and
it is admirably suited for park oc
casions. There is a ball ground, a
lake and grass parkings, where
swings and park benches have al
ready been placed.
The Eastlake ball park will be
open for the use of all amateurs for
their games and the other parkin'gs
will be the common property of. the
citizens and visitors to the city.
Tile third park secured by the city
was tile Monahan tract, a piece of
ten acres, one-half mile west of
Phoenix, which was presented to the
city by Joe Monahan. This tract at
the present time is a little less ap
proachable by the man who does not
own a car. than the others, but when
the proposed loop of the Phoenix
street car line connecting West
Washington street and Grand avenue
is finished, it will be as handy to
one man as any of the others.
These three sites, which the city
lias secured in its own name, will
remain real estate deals which are
beneficial to the people of Phoenix
and the Salt River Valley as long
as there is a demand for outdoor ex
ercise or recreation. In the greater
cities, where parks may be found
every few blocks, and where parks
are the life of the working men and
women, the value of such tracts is
more apparent than here in the Salt
River Valley. But here even, in the
past year or more, there has been an
ever-increasing demand for more and
better parks for the old, the middle
nged and the young.
Rather Than Punishment for Assault
ing German Officers.
BERLIN, March 21. General
Bocss. commanding the Twenty
fourth infantry brigade, in Silesia,
whs violently assaulted a couple days
ago by two of his orderlies. The
latter had omittiU to wake him at
the usual hour iir the morning, and
when he went to their room and
reprimanded them they struck him
with their fists and left him in
sensible. Their dead bodies vere afterwards
found on the railway, terribly muti
lated. They had lain down across
the rails and committed suicide by
letting a train run over them, to
scape the consequences of assaulting
a general.

Just Outside the City East on Van
Buren Street
"Clovis Place" is the latest addi
tion to the many new and attractive
subdivisions that offer medium-priced
building lots. Located on fifteenth
and Sixteenth streets, and bounded
on the south by Van Puren street, it
is just outside of the city limits, cm
the "ocean-to-ocean highway" and in
a rapidly developing section, there is
no reason why the Kellogg-Weldon
Company, which is putting "Clovis
Place" on the market should have
any difficulty in disposing of the
limited number of lots it comprises.
The streets are graded, the tract has
city water and electricity is avail
able. There have been many changes and
improvements made in the east side
recently, and the development of this
tract will be another boost for the
Favorable Action on Fifteen Appli
cations in Tonto Reserve
During the months of January and
February, 1014, a total of Vl'.H acres
of land within the Tonto national
forest Arizona, wt-rp liste1 with tli i
secretary of the interior and will
shortly be opened to entry under
the forest homestead act. The lands
thus listed were applied for individ
ually by fourteen applicants, and
each one of these tracts was ex
amined by a fore.st officer and found
to be more valuable for agriculture
than for forest purposes.
Those whose applications within the
Tonto national forest were favorably
acted upon during the months of
January and February are:
G. M. Burleson, G. W. Hazelwood,
Young, Ariz.; S. V. Gillett. Ralph
Hubert, Pay-son, Ariz.; Thomas K.
Turner, Harley J. Wills, William L.
Turner, Young, Arizona; John Alfred

In addition to this, 4,728.93 acres
were listed to applicants within other
national forests in Arizona, and
4,941.24 acres in national forests in
New Mexico.
awarded lately to the Cement Work
els' Concrete company, by. Greene it
Giiffin. The work will be done in
the new Oakland tract recently
oi etied by that firm.
With the completion of the con
crete work, at the end of about two
months- time, the Oakland tract will
be one of the largest and best-fitted
subdivisions in the southwest. The
improvements in curbing and side
walks will be followed by the in
stallation of sewer, electric lights
."ml gas, and by the building of
pergolas to all the street entrances
of the new tract.
A number of attractive designs for
the pergola entrances have been
submitted to the firm, and the one
selected will give Oakland that dis
t'netive appearance in keeping with
its improvements and surroundings.
In fact, it is planned to make Oak
land a residential park.
The Balm of Gilead trees recently
placed in the parkings of the district
have already begun sprouting their
hives, and since they are one of
the fastest growing species of trees
known, it will not be long before the
district is more than we'd supplied
With shade.- There is considerable
work remaining on the rolling of the
caliche roads which have been laid
ir the tract, but they will be in the
best of condition at the end of the
time which will elapse prior to the
completion of the curbing and side
walks. Since the announcement that Fhoe
r.ix is to have a through main line
railroad in the next year and a half,
the lots in the Oakland tract seem
to have gone faster than at any one
period in their earlier history. In
the week just past there have been
averages of several sales in the tract
each day. It seems that real estate
values and. sites have already taken
a boost in response to the announce
ment of the approaching railroad.
The improvements which have been
in course of making for the last
month are attracting the favorable
attention of the many homeseekers
v ho are coming to Phoenix, and the
attractive offers made by the Home
Builders for new residences in this
addition, and the other Greene &
Griffin tracts, are drawing the at
tention of several of the old as wel!
as the new residents.

walk this 15,500 miles barefoot, and
if sick enroute will cure himself by
his own herb remedies, using no
drugs or medicines whatever. He is
not allowed to borrow, beg or steal.
He makes his expenses by introduc

Xot only the farmer, but the resi

quirement is met anyone may enter

or the fruits that have been grown in
the city back yard, the suburban
garden or on the largest farm in the
It is high time, too, that the farm
ers, the embryo farmers and the
back yard farmers get their seed in
tile ground. Some of the seed may
not be matured by the time of the
fair, so late in the season is it al
ready, but in a majority of the
cases planting at the present time
will get results at a date which will
meet tile ciays of the fair. The
plants which should be planted at
the present time, or which might
have been planted some time past
to advantage, are:
Alfalfa, wheat, barley, oats, rye,
asparagus plants, Indian corn, cu
cumbers, carrots, tomato plants, fruit
trees, olives, eucalyptus, parsnips,
peanuts, beets, rye grass, Bermuda
gras3, beans, onion sets, squashes,
lettuce, pumpkin, radishes, grass seed,
cotton melons, citrons, sugar cane.
Exhibits in all the above list as
well as in all other early fruits and
vegetables which may be on hand
will be received at the fair, and it is
likely there will be a large repre
sentative collection of the above gar
den trucks especially.
In the ease of the corn, the wheat,
barley and other grains, as well as in
the case of the sorghum forage plants
and non-saccharines such as milo
maize, Kaffir corn and feterita, where
the grain has not had amide time
to mature, the stalks may be exhibit-j
ed as at prior fairs, and awards will,
be made for the best and most ma-1
tured specimens. j
Feterita will be especially boosted '
at the present fair and during the-'
present planting season as one of;
the most profitable and best grains!
which can lie grown in the valley,
and special stress will be laid on the
exhibits in this grade of grain. As
it matures in two to two and one
half months and requires less water
than the other grains there will be
ample time for preparing exhibits. It

add to the interest of the fair. The
new or practically new crops of the
valley make competition and raise in
terest in comparative results between
the farmers. The citizens of. the
valley are anxious to know if cotton
will be a howling success or partial
one. Everyone would like to see a
sample of feterita, a new corn to
the Salt River Valley, and which
promises to take the place of sev
eral other varieties.
New and original ideas have sprung
up every day on the farms. The
farming cult of the valley like to ex
change ideas anil methods. The fair
affords that chance when they all
meet at the booths about their com

better acquainted, and add to the
show year by year, with the result
that this is better than last, and that
the next year fair will probably ex
