Fruit Exchanges Doing a Good
Colton Terrace Navel Oranges Sent to St.
Augustine, Florida
Local Produce Markets—California Wlnei and
Eggs Supplying th: Eastern
Loa Angeles. March 5.
The fruit exchanges have good cause to exult
over the success of their operations thut far
this season. If orders keep coming at the
present rate, the crop will be cleaned up much
earlier than ever before and at prices that will
be more than satisfactory to the growers. As
an exam pie of bow tho exchanges arc getting
in their work an advertisement in a recent
number of tbe Now York Journal of Com
merce ls cited in which a prominent New York
fruit house offers 43 cars of I allfornin ortnges
for sale,, (uot at auction) and of the 43, 38 are
from the exchanges, only five being furnished
by outside shippers. This same advertisement
classes San Antonio and Dunrte Exchange fruit
as coining from Riverside. The idea still
seems tn prevail at the East that Riverside
embraces tho the entire citrus belt. To eradi
cate this misconception It is probable that the
exchanges will next year have a lithographed
map of Southern California on their letter
A New York fruit , house informs tbe ex
change* that it recently had an order from the
Hotel Ponce de Leon, at St. Augustine, 11b..
for 30 boxes of fancy California oranges, and
filled It by forwarding 30 boxes of Colton Ter
race navels.
The directors of the Semi-Tropic Exchange
met Tuesday afternoon and transacted their
usual weekly routine business. The executive
committee of the exchanges meets Wednesday
afternoon and may raise prices another point
or two.

resldenceen the ranch just purchashed and set
out all the land to iruit trees.
Mr. Cuthman also reports the sale of a num
ber of fire and ten acre tracts at Alamitos bay.
This promises to become one of the bett fruit
colonies In Los Angeles county.
The Eastward Movement Showing an Encour
aging Increase
The outward movement and tale of Califor
nia wines and brandies at the East must, under
the circumstances, be looked upon as quite
encouraging. The report from New York is
that the attendance as the sale on Feb. 25th
was larger than at any of their previous sales,
and the prices were, on the average, about the
same as those which have ruled at the two
previous sales.
Nearly 17,000 barrels ol California wine
reached New York city from Feb. 6th to 25th,
and under the circumstances the prices ob
tained were considered satisfactory, especially
as It $01 came under the low freight ruling be
fore the 4th instant.
On February 26th there were six carloads of
wine and pneof.brandy sold at auction in New
York at the ttUowinj prices: 143 barrels 01
port wine. 3i'A to 27 cents per gallon; 117
barrels Zinfandel, 23 to 19U cents per gallon;
Ion: 5 barrels sauvignon, 3SJ4 to 20 cents
per gallon : 4 barrels muscat. 30 to HH'i cents
per aallon: 5 barrels sauterne, 24', to 24
cents per gallon; 30 barrels brandy, 53 to 47
cents per gallon :40 half-barrels braudy. 68 to
57 cents ncr gallon. The brandy was sold at I
the short price—l. c., the burer paying tne tax
of $1. HI per nallon. The prices are low It is
true, but the tendency toward freer move
ment In tho Eastern markets may bring Its
own reward later on. -Pacific Rural Press.
Pointers on the Markets by Private
Los Angeles, March 5.
De Van A Rutledge, grain and stock brokers,
furnish the following market bulletins for tbe
benefit of local speculators:
Several sharp tussles have taken place in
the grain markets the last week between the
bulls and bears, and the bulls have bad the
best of the arguments. Throe weeks ago the
bears got the price ol wheat as low as 52 cents,
but it has been an Impossibility to get it down
to those figures again. We believe that this is
the calm before the storm and that we shall
soon see a oondltlon of affairs that will sur
prise even the bulls themselves. Armour has
been a large buyer of wheat during the past
week while Pardridge has increased his short
Hue, and with anything like a positive ad
vance will be forced to cover and thus help
send prices up.
New York reports good shipping demand,
about 250,000 bushels being taken for export.

A Farmer Who Has Tried It Says It is the
Crop of Crops
In response to the Inquiries of the editor of
an exchange regarding the value of alfalfa, a
successful fa mer said recently:
• Getalong without it? Why. bless you, no.
Without that alfalfa field 1 would be unable
to bold down my place. Let me tell you what
it has done for me, Four years ago I was
clear discouraged and concluded to leave the
ranch; I worked hard but there seemed to be
no returns for my labor. The amount of hay
my little ranch would produce would soon be
eaten by the stock. My horses were poor, my
cows dried up early, the hogs seemed'to have a
case of chronic squeal, whl.e my bees, gener
ally speaking, produced only a limited amount
of honey to say the least. I was dlsheai terted.
for I had settled here with the intention to
make this a permanent homo for myself anil
family. One day tho happy thought came to
me, why not try an alfalfa field, but then I
argued it must be irrigated—it will cost a good
deal to get water, reservoir and pipes; still I
concluded to try n. There was a nice iitiie
spring in the pasture a short away above the
house, and at that place I Immediately started
to develop more water. In due time I had a
good stream of water flowing dewn the hillside
1 then cut below this tn the summit of a slight
elevation above lh > ground I w'shed to irri
gate, and here, with team, plow, scraper, pick
and shov-1 broke ground for the reservoir,
which 1 made round with sloping sides aud
about five feet deep in the center. As soon as
completed tbe pipes were laid and the water
carried to the field, and now you would Uko to
know the results? Well, they have been very
satisfactory, indeed.
1 soon enjoyed the sight of a brand new ten
acre field of alfalfa, and what a grand sight it
was to see that bright green spot, like an oasis
on the desert, shine out through the dry sum
mer months, when other vegetation was with
ered and dry. The way that piece M land re
sponded to Irrigation's magic, touch seemed to
put new life in me. It grew very rapidly, aud
the time did not seem long until it ban grown
up aud was in bloom, and th?n what a merry
hum arose from that field for the next few
days; the bees fairly swarmed ont on it, and
gathered a fine lot of beautiful alfalfa honey,
which, in point of quality, is second to noiie
produced by any honey plant in this country.
The chickens thrived on the green feed, the
hogs grew and fattened on it. my cows cama
out in their milk; in fact, everything about
me gave evidence of Its superiority as an all
around article of food for stock.
As the result oi my experiment with that
field I am still living on my ranch and am now
making a good living. I have more than dou
bled my stock, have considerable butter and
eggs to sell, turn out several hogs for market
each year, besides selling some hay now and
then. Of course 1 always grow some beets, pie
melons, pumpkins, etc, for a variety feeding,
and also a little barley or oat Hay for mv
horses, as I do not think tt a good plan to feed
a fHlfs to horses all tbe time without a change.
Yes, sir; I am well pleased with my experi
ment, and my advice to all ranchers who can
?et weier with which to irrigate is to plant al
alia."—Riveiside Reflex.
A Turn In the Tide of the Movement ol Hen
It is interesting to note that we are getting
the turn on the egg business and are sending
to Chicago a few in exchange for the many
which are shipped Into this state. In our last
issue Mr. Whitman told in an Interesting way
how it is that theso "western eggs" are rolled
together to flood our far western markets. Our
shipment far eastward this winter ls a com
mercial novelty. The Chicago dealer who was
selling California eggs last week says that this
is the first time that California eggs werj ever
sold east of the Missouri river. "Never before,"
says this Chicago egg expert, "would such a
shipment have been profitable. The price in
San Francisoo frequently ranges from 50 to 60
cents a dozen. Thirteen months ago we
shipped four or five carloads of eggs from
Chicago to San Francisco and sold them there
at 16' i oents a dozen, but last winter was warm
and eggs were cheap in Chicago. The whole
sale price here now is 128 cents a dozen. The
carload we bought In Sen Francisco cost us lv
cents a dozen and we have ordered another
carload. The freight cost 3% cents a dozen,
leaving us a nioe profit, The carload contained
12,000 dozen. They are what are called Cali
fornia ranch eggs. The cold rains on the coast
are now over and the warm weather has caused
the hens to lay rapidly, and eggs are cheaper
there now than they have been for many years.
The hens in the west seem to boon a ssrike,
but the New York bens have greater cause for
I striking because of the importation of pauper
eggs from Canada. Nearly all the eggs in New
York come from Canada. They are not fresh
but are limed. Some of them are a year or
two old. There are no fresh eggs now in Can
ada. The winter has been very severo on the
hens.—Pacific Rural Press.
Extensive Building Operations Going on In

The :*!> '. Hester Canal
Tt.e Manchester Ship Canal, says the English
Statist, is hnpclevslv bankrupt. This Journal,
says the Engineering News, says ' that the
ShsTre capita; now amounts to 940,000,000 and
* 13,500,000 of 4 percent and $22,800,000 of
per cent. Including $20,000,000 of pre
ferred shares at 5 per cent, the mere annual
interest charge is $2,812,300. This leaves out
of account the $2,500,000 which the company
still has power to borrow, and also the pro
vision for the sinking fund, depreciation, etc.
The Statist suggests that the city of Manches
ter alone nan reduce this charge, and as that
city is said to bo greatly benefited by the canal
It proposes that Manchester reduce Its interest
on the $22,500,000 invested by It from 4W
to 3'i per cent. This would at once make a
saving of a year without lots to the
city, Ihe opinion is growing In England that
ultimately the canal will hay* to be taken
over by some public trust, issuing bonds se
cured by taxes on all the area benefited by
the construction of the canal."
The Florida Disaster
Speak ing of the last hard freeze the Jackson
ville Union says that orango trees were mora
hurt than in December, on account of the sap
having, in the southern parts of the State,
started to run freely. Thousands of acres of
vegetables, such as egg plants, watermelons,
tomatoes, peas, etc, will have to be replanted.
There was a larger crop of vegetables Just com
ing out of the ground than at any time in th*
history of the state, as almost every orange
grower had resorted to this means to recoup.
On the east coast, along the entire Indian
river, the pineappla growers are severely hurt,
some saying that two-thirds of the plants
themselves are killed. On the west coast and
in the lake regions tomatoes, which were al
most the exclusive crop, were killed outright.
Even strawberries were set back and in places
killed.—Pacific Rural Press.
St rp.wh***y Rvchanje
C. \T. Finch returned a few day* ago from
Azusa, Covina and Glendora. He says straw
berry growers down that way are arranging
for the formation of a strawberry exchange on
the same plan as the orange growers are organ
ized here. They have found it necessary to
handle their own crop if they would make
anything out of it. Th* time will be and
should be when all middlemen will be don*
away with in handling all the products of the
country. The producers will never bo able to
get a profit on their labor until there ar*
these organizations in every brench of Indus
try.—Riverside Press.
The Oyster Trade
Oyster shipping houses are alarmed at the
decrease in the trad*. In Contrast to an ex
port of over 5000 barrels a week last year, only
210 barrels were sent out last week. The cause
is a scare over th* alleg-d nnhenlthiness of tb*
American oyster, started by British journals.—
Green's Fruit Grower says: Fruits produced
by self pollination are quite different from
those produced by cross fertilization. Few
varltlesof apples will self fertilize to any ex.
tent. The chief agents for fertilization are in
sects, and honey bees are among the best.
Every fruit grower should keep some bees tor
fertilize his blossoms, or see that his neighbor
