Webster Treat of Davisville Califor
nia, an authority on almond culture,
lias rontrlhuted the following to the
Woodland Mail:
'This year from 1M California paper
'shell almond trees (five years old)
'covering two and five-sevenths acres,
"L gathered :i,.02 pound of nuts, that
".sold in Chicago at twenty-two cents
"er pound. This l.'H.2 to the acre
llttleovcr4tothe trc -eighteen
"poundg to the. tree. AVl.cn th'-HCMiine
"trees wcr four year old thf.v aver
"nged ahoilt three pounds, and at eight
"yoars they will double what they bore
"at five. They will at eight years bear
"fully forty jxMimUtothe tree without
"the least exert Ion. This at seventy
"trees to the acre, and reckoning nt
"twenty-two cents to the pound, Is
"1,540.00 per acre, Now these are
"nothing but plain, bare, raw facts.
"Almond trees live and do well for
"fifty years, and in some place- in
. "Europe when fifteen years old In-ar
"from l".0 to 2o) pounds per tree."
The same results attained intbecul
tureof almonds by Mr. Treat, can be
reached in Stmt hern Arizona. Devoted
to the culture of Almonds a very small
acreage would yield a handsome reve
nue. What better Investment ran ho
made than In a five or ten acre tract
in the Arizola colony planted in this
valuable tree? What hils been done at
i)avlvlllf! may easily be repeated here.
Lund that can be bought at pr ices at
which the colony tracts are selling
that possesses such a splendid product
Ivc : capacity is surely a gilt edged in
vestment. At the figures quoted, in
the fiftli year ten acres will yield a
gms revenue of more than M.onn. and
deducting freight and other exjienses
the net return will very near equal
that sum; while at eight years the net
revenue from the same ten acres will
bo close to Sl.",Oi)o.O!). What Ix'tter
chance to acquire a competence can a
man of limited income, expect than
by investing his savings on the iu-tal-ment
plan in a five or ten acre t ract in
the Arlzola colony, and have it planted
In almond) and cared for by the com
pany? lly the time the lat payment
Is made the- fortunate Investor will
have a home and a handsome property
which will yield a comfortable living
with very little care and attention:
with an assured annual Increase that
In a few years will make the reveoue
almost princely.
Such investment can be made with
out fear of any aiaterial change in the
value, of the product as the years pass.
In other words there is no reason to
apprehend a reduction in profits from
overproduction. That subject was
thoroughly ventilated in a recent arti
cle In the Arizona Magazine, copied by
Tiik Oasis. The writer had called on
many dealers in nuts in eastern cities,
and had corresponded with inqMirters
In Boston, TS'evt York and Philadel
phia, Invariably leveling his inquiries
upon the single question, involved,
lie found all agreed that there is a very
large and rapidly increasing demand
for almonds to satisfy which will re-j
quire the product of many thousand
acres. It is doubtful whether there
is enough land that will produce the
almond to satisfy the growing demand
and shut olT foreign iniportat ion. in
this light it is a self evident proposi
tion that the. far-sighted planter
of an almond orchard plants for
lasting profit and permanent prosper
ity. Anyone looking for proposit ions
of that kind will lind plenty of 1 hem
right here at Ari.ola. Con e and take
advantage of one of them. II is l he
greatest chance of the muttcA nth century.
