THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 19,' 1914 .. , Buy a Lot in REAL ESTATE FEED IN I 0 1 CI OA KLM ND 1 SMALL i FARMS WILL AGAIN BE POPULAR THIS FALL Trend for Smaller Tracts Capable of Intensive Cul tivation Means Independ ence for Fanner, Greater Values for Yallev Indications are that there will be a revival of business in small farming areas in this valley during the coming fail and winter The present trend is f..r small tracts where an intensive i-nltrvntion will cause the wonderfully ri h land to produce to its utmost. The t flVt't of this will be to enhance the Value of the land, the independence of the Auner, the satisfaction of the com munity in general and to conserve the water wealth of the entire valley. Already plans are on foot to place some splendidly situated property upon the market in the shape of twenty at re farms, which will contain enough alfalfa acreage to support the stock nxessary to run the place and leave Mill enough land for orchard and farm to make a more than ordinary good living for the farmer and his family. The recent exposition of farm pro ducts at the city hall plaza brought out the value of the best that can be produced and the theoretical work de veloped largely the information, coup led as it was with experience, that the smaller areas were, more easily attend ed to than the larger because the time of the farmer for the .small area was more available to each individual acre that it could possibly be to the exces sive area. The ultimate of the successful small area farmer is a tract of land well cul tivated free from debt a happy and prosperous farmer a smiling valley, a faster growing city, contented inhabi tants. The complaint is sometimes made that small acreage costs more highly per acre than the larger, but as an El Paso man here last week said "It makes Jittle difference what a man pays for acreage that is cultivatable to an intensive degree even if he pays up to J1000 per acre, the land buyer stil! gets the best of it. There will never be another land crop. STATE TREASURER BUYS E IN CHELSEA PLACE D. F. Johnson Becomes the Owner of a Beautiful Home. H.

SOUTHWESTER CARBURETOR COMPANY ARIZONA NEW MEXICO TEXAS 321 N. Central Avenue I A IPI T porn ii TEN HOUSES TO BE BUILT IN GROWING OAKLAND $25,000 in Ten Homes Greene Griffin Form Syndicate to Do Work. Sturges Hav & Grain Co. Becomes Phoenix Seed & Feed Co., and the Best j Chicken l'Yed. Will Be! Manufactured An interesting change in Phoenix business circles took place last week, when the SturKes Hay and Grain Company became the Phoenix Seed and Feed Co. Marshall Humphrey, retains his position as manager and vice president, with Ken Stanton as secretary and treasurer and - Max Viault of the Mesa Milling Company as president. The newly re-organized concern will -continue to handle the seed, feed and poultry supply lines carried by the Sturges Company, and in addition will immediately begin the manufacturing of an extensive line of poultry feeds. Manager Humphrey has had much experience in both laising poultry and handling poultry feeds, and real izing that the imported feeds were not exactly adaptable to the needs of this section, has for some time desir ed to arrange to grind them locally, of home-grown materials. This the new company will do and the. grind ing and mixing machinery hss already been ordered. Hiirnphiey has just re turned from Petaiuma, California, where he has been study ing poultry conditions, visiting the poultry feed mills, etc. Besides buy ing the machinery he engaged the services of a poultry feed grinding expert who will arrive in a few days to superintend tli- installing of the plant in the company's large ware houses at Second street and Harrison. It appears t'.iat most of the im ported feeds contain too much corn J and other heating foods, that are not desirable for feeding in warm cli mates. In the foods to be ground here, very carefully worked out and tested formulas uill be used, so that the various feels, such as chick feed, scratch feed, laying, ami developing mash will each ha best for their spe cial purpose, and bi-st for this climate. In addition to their retail business it is planned to do a wholesale busi ness throughout Arizona nn-1 parts Where you don't have to toll out a lot of money for Streets Sidewalks Sewerage City Water or Gas. They are all in and paid for. Get in now on cellar prices. We are going to start a dozen houses in a few days. Two blocks to electric line just north of the Capitol. Big Lots Easy to buy. Greene & Griffin 127 North Central Avenue. Telephone 709 of, New Mexico. The location of ! Phoenix in a great agricultural valley makes it particularly suitable for a poultry feed industry. Marshall Humphrey and P.en Stan ton, the two young men who will have direct charge of the business are very well known here for their hustle and ambition, and now that they have secured the interests of the Sturges Hi others in the concern, and have secured additional concern, there is no doubt but that they will make the new company one of the bej;t known here. Humphrey says that a visit to Petaiuma, "the poultry center of the world" helps one to realize the won derful possibilities of the poultry in dustry in the Salt River Valley. Petaiuma is surrounded by no such country as is Phoenix, and many ways this community has superior advantages for the business. In 1!U3 Petaiuma shipped 1,4K4,744 dozen eggs, and K8,t-J4 dozen of live and dressed poultry. It is well known that the supply of poultry products here does not even take care of lo cal demands at certain times, to say nothing of many of the outside Ari zona markets that depend upon Cali fornia and Kansas. The new cone, -in remains at the old location on Kast Jefferson. Star pes Bros, will devote their entire atten tion to the wholesale hay business. IRE HOIS WILL SOON DOT HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS dotted with homes. Already Several of the recent purchase's, of property in Hollywood Heights luive signified their intention of building homes there. -o- Mr. and Mrs. Completed Sidney Monroe Have Residence There. 01 iRTHRUP IS NOW Another handsome home for the Hollywood Heights addiliion is the news from the H. C. Thomas com pany lor the week just ending. A. 1". Jones has just completed a fine one out there for Mr. and M.-s. Sidney Monroe. It is well situated, has nil city conveniences and will still fur ther add to the attractiveness of this addition. That the popularity of this addi tion is well up in the list of home tracts adjacent to Phoenix is well demonstrated. The following is a Hst of still more property owners out there which, when added to the list published by this paper last Sunday, will give a complete roster of re cent purchasers. C. A. Parr, II. W. Boyd. Mrs. Nellie Allen, V. L. Shiffer four lots, Mrs. S. A. Jenkins, I,ester P.. P.eilly, Mrs. Fairy Kueter, Mrs. S. T. Hall, W. P. Arnold and J. W- Horton.

Noi'tlnup. who is having a fine home built fov him on Willcta street by the side of the fine Halstead residence.

C, has been api'ointe.l advisor to the On tario goverrniK lit jn the matter of put ling tiie new workiiiKinan':; compensa tion act into operation in that province. The big Oakland tract, two blocks north of the State Capitol, will, soon be one of the busiest spots in Phoe nix. Anticipatory to the demand for homes in the fall, and realizing the present shortage . in. .houses, the Greene & Griffin company has or ganized a syndicate of well known men engaged in the building trade, who will begin work this month on ten substantial brick houses. Over $23,000 will be spent in constructing these houses. All will have five rooms, bath and screen sleeping rooms. Foundations will be of con crete, nearly all will be plaster fin ish on the exterior. Several new and novel features that should prove popular will be introduced. The development of thin tract will be watched with interest, as the size of the lots is a new de parture. Oakland Is the first and enly tract where all lots have a uniform width of sixty feet. That this size should prove popular is not to be doubted, as of .late years the width of houses has increased, with the result of crowding the usual size lot. The city water department is busy extending its big six -inch water main to all parts of the tract. Work will be finished this coming week. Two other lot purchasers are having plans drawn for houses to be erected in the early fall. ARIZONA THEATRE HIS CROWDS AT OPENING More than twelve hundred people visited the Arizona Theater last night to attend the opening of the rehabili tated Savoy, to hear the great Wur litzer Orchestra, and to see the splendid six reel drama Captain Alvarez. The picture is full of interest. It is the longest six reel subject that has ever been shown here taking two hours to run through completely. The story it tells is remarkably in teresting especially at this time when similar conditions to those related in the picture have oecured in Mexico. The scenes are laid in Argentine and revolution is dividing the country. Then amid these scenes of war and ad venture, robbery and plunder the scenes of love are laid, that made Paul Gilmore famous when hn essayed the same play on the legitimate stage. The performance is emphatically worth seeing. Then the orchestra. It added a great deal to the pleasure of the evening. Under the able fingers of Fred Martin It gave forth some of the most beautiful music that has been heard here. Es pecially good was the,.-Traunaerei se lectfon played during trie course of the picture. . , ......
