PROFIT IN WALNUTS.
Iflliilna; lutclltsrcnce. The Calico Print has the following items of much interest: Bahten & Ed wards are making arrangements to apply for patents to their mines, tho Harmo nial No. 1 aud tbe Z.phyr. The Har monial No. 1 mine adjoins the Waterloo on the weet through which a tunnel is now being driven so as to give the latter mine a convenient outlet. It will be necessary for the Oro Gtando Company to purchase the Harmonial No. 1 in or der to conduct the ore of the Waterloo to the flit below, where the buildings of the company are located, aud whete teams can conveuien ly receive tho ore. Negotiations are pending tor tho pur chase of this mine by the company, but should the company f.iil to secure the mine by refusing to give the amount asked for it tho company would be compelled to erect hoisting wotks on the* top of the Wuterloo, where tho facilities for waste dumps art email, and a road would have to be built a nulu further around and up the lull to enable the teams to reach the ore dumps. Water can be conveyed to tbe mouth of the Harmonial No. 1 tunnel by pipes from the tanks of the Calico Water Works Company, but not to the point where the hoisting works would be built. Tbe purchase of tho Harmo nial No. 1 mine would probably save the Oro Graude company $40,000 or Soo,ooo a year in expenses. These facts make the property of Bahten & Edwards very valuable nsulo from its intrinsic value as au ore producer. Tho Zephyr adjoins the Waterloo on the north and is a Val uable fractional claim on account of the muiu ledge running through it, and in all probability will be purchased by the company also. The superintendent of tho work of grading the foundation to the new sixty stamp mill has a ditlicult time keeping his l.ibjrers. The wages paid is &2 50 per day. and only miners who are dead broke will work for such wages, and then only a few days. Some of those who have quit work complain that tbe food at tbe company's boarding-house ie not satisfactory for the wants of a work iugaian. Last Monday there were three or four miners ltft out ef tho thirty em ployed, so the superintendent sent to San Bernardino tor farm hands, who are more accustomed to work for low wages than miners are. The Blaektoot mints have again been leased to chioriders who aro ineetiug with success iv mining. This mine ha yielded many thousands of dollars to chioriders, and the company owning it. and for a while it was thought nil the rich pcukcts had been exhausted, but recent developments show that such was not the case. The force of men employed by J. S. Doe Jt Co. has been considerably in creased and now consists of ninety men, including those working nt the mill. Seme of the mines of Ihe cimputiy are veritable bonanzas and for several years have been turning out a large and steady output of bullion. ■ Harry Kiik and Thomas Boyd have a lease on tho Thunderer adjoiuing the Garfield, aud are taking out some very rich ore from a disintegrated formation on the surface lying between tbe boul ders. Ten tons of ore were shipped to the Selby Smelting Works of San Fran cisco from the Cleveland mine, the other day. The rich ore recently struck on the Juanita by At stall & Plutb, still holds out. Bob Greer atid Jas. Blair recently se cured a lease ou tho Homeatake mine, owned by Win. Reed and John Reed. This mine lies between the Kearsarge and Silver Odessa, and has already a CO-foot shaft and a 100-foot tuunel worked on the same. The ore being of a low grade was discontinued by the Reed Bros. But Greer & Blair were fortunate enough to strike it rich from the "grass roots." They are now tak ing out some hue ore and are much pleased with the prospect. It will not take many tons of the ore tbey now have on the dump lo give them each a handsome stake. N. Nelson and Joe Sutton have struck a rich pocket on the Bismarck, which ia panning out $20 a day. Niokeless & Marlow, and several other chioriders are still doing well on this old miue, which has yielded many thousands ot doll irs to the companies and chioriders who have worked it. There seems to be no limit to the ore. No great, depth has been attained, and the surfaco of tbo mine loo' s like a quarry, still it is likely yet to developo into a bonauzt; if it does it will be due to the pluck and ptrseveranco of the chioriders. Col. E. Birch and Geo. Tait recently obtained a lease on tbe Pinto near tbe Comet, ami commenced to take out ore from the first stroke of the pick. They have a good prospect. Henry Meyers is also taking out considerable good ore on tho same nvne from one of the tunnels. Considerable work has been dono on tbis mine with results that warrant the belief that it will de velop into a permanent and proli able m ne. Success in Growing Them .in this State. THE GRENOBLE WALNUT. A Slow Grower but a Sure Success. Experience with Growing; the Nut in This County. The grape alone, or the peaoh, almond, olive, orange or any of the dozen fruits for which California, is dis tinguished, would make a foundation for prosperity fn any of the Eastern States The peach is tbe source of the prosper ity of Delaware, the orange is Florida's priuoipal reliance, and so nearly ull through the list of States. California alone seems to have the range of all pioductions, everything, so far as tried, having proved a success. Even cotton has become quite a held crop incounti- s, as tobacco has in others; and no doubt if there were as much money in sugar oane as in grapes or other fruit, some enterprising man would capture a few thousand acres of some of our rich val leys and run a serious opposition to King Spreckels of Hawaii. But though the Sandwich Islands will raise sugar, that is about all, while California seems to have no limit to its productions. If ATI VH WALNUT. Recently attention has been turned te the English walnut as a possible source of revenue. Several varieties of walnut have been found growing wild in the counties of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Contra Costra, Santa Clara I a \ some others. Some of them are in r shrubs) others are thrifty treeß, rivaling iv size andtiuality of the timber their conquer ors of the Mississippi valley. The wal nut of Contra Costa has beeu trans planted to many parts of the State and some of the trees ere now three feet in diameter with a clean trunk twenty feet or more in height. Some of tbe timber bas been worked at the Central Pacific Railroad shops in Sacramento and found to be much superior to the black walnut of the East. In considering tho plant ing of the walnut family the value of the timber should not be forgotten. The native trees were planted at iirst ft-r the nuts, but as tbey ware interior to tbe imported varieties not much value is attached to them. Hundreds are grow ing along the road-side near San Jose. THE ENGLISH WALNUT. This is a native of Germany and France, aud is not raised in England to any exteut. It oamo to be so called in tho United States because It was im ported by way of England. Tho wood is a corruption from "wold" or "wood nut." They are most plentiful around Grenoble, in France; therefore it is known in Europe as the Grenoble nut. It has come to California along with other European products, and seems likely to do as well here as the other im ported trees. The fact that varieties of the walnut family are growing wild here is almost an assurance that any Variety will thrive with proper care. SUCCESSFUL PLANTATIONS. The Grenoble or English walnut has not been exten lively planted as yet. The largeet number of bearing trees in one body, that the writer has seen, is that owned by the Hon. Russell Heath, of Carpinteria, in Santa Barbara county. Tbis plantation covers about forly acres. The trees are forty feet apart, about twenty-eight trees to the acre, aud for some years have been yielding the owner two hundred pounds of marketable nuts to the tree. • Joseph Sexton, of Goleta, in the same county, has a smaller plantation equally successfully. The writer is unable to give tbe exact time of planting, but tbe trees are all upwards of fifteen years of age. Some years ago, Ell wood, Cooper, of the same county planted four thou sand trees, but tbey have not reached tho fall bearing period. The above de scribed orchards are planted on a rich, deep, alluvial soil. The growth has been enormous, the limbs almost touch, ing each other, though tbe trees are at such a great distance apart. Nothing can be more stately or beauliful than a walnut orchard twenty years old. SLOW AND SURE. It is a forest tree and is slow in corn ing into full bearing, though a few nuts, scattered through the long years of growth, will assure the ownei of the quality of tbe fruit in tho fulure. Very many people, unused to the long years of preparation, lose patience, dig up the trees and plant something that will be more immediately remunerative. Per haps the belter woy would be to plant the trees foity feet apart and others be tween, making the walnut trees but one fourth of the number. Peach tr-tes, for instance, would become comparatively old by the time the walnuts would want the ground, and would be ready to come out. WALNCTS IN THIS COUNTY. Quite a number of trees in the aggre gate are growing and bearing in this county. Almost all of the older orcbard ists have a few that bear the well-kuown English walnut. There are perhaps a doz in places around Los Gatos where they may be seen, among which are those of Mr. McMurtry. Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Kennedy, Miss Ayers aud others. Tho largest plantation ia that of Mr. Giah, who has about 400 trees fifteen years old. They ore growing well and have every year a few pouuda to the tree. A great mistake woe made in the planting. Tho trees, being only twenty feet apart, are already interlacing their branches, though only in babyhood yet. Captain Tarbett, of Los Gatos, has an orchard about the same size and age, though the trees are more judiciously planted, having n greater distance be tween. While the trees are not yet renumerUive, enough has been done to demonstrate the value of the tree and adaptation of the soil and climate to its culture. The Comet mine is still proving a reg ular bonanza to tho chioriders working ou it. Whitten, Boyle, Cocoran at d others have realized handsome dividends from their labors, and still are taking out considerable rich ore. A 1.10 foot tunnel ia being s'ared to tap tbe main shaft at a depth of 70 feet. The prospects of this mine warrant a belief tbat it will develop into a regular mine that will ke<p lo or 20 etamps in con stant operation. PROBABLE HOME OF THE NOT. As has been stated, Ihe walnutis a for est tree, and though improved by selec tion and cultivation it still requires many yoars for Its growth. In Grenoble, the home of the not, it grows far up tho bides of the mountains iv a deop, mellow •oil. A few trees planted in the or chards of tbe Santa Cruz mountains show wonderful vigor and indicate a brilliant future. The soil, being deep aud mellow, resting on rocks rich in plant food, so soft tbat the roots of trees readily penetrate, offers the best possible conditions for the cultivation al that nut. The pioneers of tbe frui bu4ng.se in California have demonstrated the wonderful capacity of the soil, though now too old to undertake the cultivation of such long lived trees as the walnut and olive, but a new genera tion is fast coming to the front, who will bave ample time to wait on the long lived trees and who will yet see walnuts a prominent article in our exports. Thirty trees to the aore and twenty dol lars to the tree are worth waiting and working for, yet that is what Colonel Heath of Santa Barbara is getting. Truly California will never oease lo be a wonder. What State or county can *>ffe» auch brilliant rewards for intelli gent, patient industry?—[San Jose Her mit*. IttBSCELI. IM.l'l S.
