Local People to Subdivide
170,000 Acres in Merced
and Madera Counties
The consummation of a big: reel es
tate deal this week calls to the at
tention of the public the eminence
of the San Joaquin valley. The deal
in question concerns the famous
Ohowchilla ranch, which has long
been considered the finest plum in the
valley by real estate operators. This
ranch. 108,0000 acres In extent, has
been taken over by Stlne & Kendrtck.
local real estate operators, who will
be in a position to oifer this property
to settlers immedlat »'.y after the flrst
of the year.
Lying in the heart of the San Joa
quin valley, the Ohowcliill.v ranch !s
level as a table and as fertile as try
soil to be found in this vast empire.
The fertility of the rlcn, deep sandy
loam has been exhilarated during the
last 50 years to a great extent by pas
turage which works as a great stim
ulus on the most fertile of soils. The
fact that 90 per cent of the ranch has
never been under the plow is a strong
argument to the land purchaser for its
virginity and strength.
The California Pastoral and Agri
cultural company, with offices in Edin
burgh, Ecotland, purchased this prop
erty in 1882, from which time until
recently they operated lt successfully
as a stock ranch, when the new own
ers acquired it. The tract changed
hands only twice during the period
from 1858 to 1882. The second pur
chase was that made by the Scotch
capitalists, who operated the stock
ranch. It is stated that the recent
sale was made to satisfy the heirs of
many of the former holders In this
cosnpany, as several deaths have oc

About evenly divided between Mer
ced and Madera counties, the Chow
rhilla ranch is located In the heart
of the greatest dairy and agricultural
district In California. At the annual
state fair of 1911 this section won the
first prize for the best display of ag
ricultural products, while 18 other
awards were given. Included in the
products which were listed under the
flrst price were figs, sweet potatoes,
dried peaches, dried nectarines,
grapes. ( cantaloupes, corn on stalk,
barley, white rye and almonds. This
list gives the layman an idea of the
wonderful diversity of crops that are
raised under the best of conditions in
this section. Fnder development the
Chowehilla ranch will produce any of
the above products equally as well,
aa it is surrounded on all sides by
developed country from which these
exhibits were taken.
A factor that proves an important
item in the production of crops in the
vicinity of the tract is the equitable
climate which is enjoyed in this sec
tion of the valley. The average tem
perature, which is 68 degrees, with
summer heat at the right time of the
year, matures the crops at the proper
period of the season to produce the
Notwithstanding the fact that va
rious crops thrive at "Chowchilla. it
Is the primary idea of Stlne & Ken
drlck to make this property one of
the greatest dairy land projects In the
state. It ts already popular as a
great dairying country and owing to
the attractive prices realized from
dairy products they consider this the
most feasible proposition for the set
tler. Alfalfa, which Is the mainstay
In the dairying business, grows lusti
ly wherever lt can get water and con
sidering that an ample supply can be
got from wells any place a bore Is
made, the practicability of the indus
try is realized.
GOOD FOR ALFALFA
Regarding the production of alfalfa,
It is well to mention that a field com
prising 4,000 acres of this forage is
growing on the tract. This field,
planted 1" years ago. is still a' re
markable stand, notwithstanding the
fact that lt has been constantly pas
tured during this, entire period. A
better illustration of the hardiness
and growth of this crop would be
hard to obtain.
Particularly interesting Is the water
situation at Chowchilla At the pres
ent time there are 33 artesian wells
on the property, each flowing an im
mense volume of water. These wells
have been giving up this remarkable
flow for the last 50 years, showing
no diminution during this period.
There is a subterranean flow beneath
every' acre'whleh makes lt possible
to get these results. The wells were
bored to get water for stock which
was pasturing on the land at that
T-'pon the Immediate completion of
the sale of the Scotch capitalists to
tlie new owners of the property de
velopment work on a big- scale was
starter] with the result that many big
improvements have been completed.
Included among the activities of the
construction department Is the build,
ing and completion of a 12 mile ma
cadamized boulevard which has been
parked and beautified by ornamental
trees and shrubbery. The townsite of
Chowrhilla, situated at the Junction
of the Southern Pacific railroad and
the Ohowchilla Electric railroad.
■•Milch Is now under construction. Is
already a thriving community. Two
hotels, a bank and a score of other
structures grace the business section,
while the residential district shows
evidence of new growth every week.
As many as three homes have been

trict in one we#k.
In the planning of the townslte
every provision was made to make
this all ideal community with proper
improvements and restrictions to In

and other public service utilities are
installed and included in the purchase

The acquisition of tlie Chowchilla
ranch puts Stine Sc. Kendrick ih

stress upon the fact that these mul

Duncan McDuffie Is Well
Pleased With Way Lots
"Instead of having a tendency of
detracting from the sales of lots in
St. Francis Wood, we are pleased to
say that the advent of the holiday
season has stimulated sales In the
residence park west of Twin peaks,"
said Duncan McDuffie yesterday.
"In the face of adverse conditions
the sale of lots in St. Francis Wood
during the usually inactive summer
months was of a very gratifying na
ture. In October our sales were $25.
--000 and in November they reached
$42,000. For the flrst 10 days of De
cember they were upward of $20,000.
"Conditions generally presage an
early and very active spring. This
will be especially true of residence
property west of Twin peaks, which
has been assured rapid transit by
means of the Twin peaks tunnel and
many other improvements."
One of the striking peculiarities of
selling conditions in St. Francis Wood
since the exclusive and restricted res
idence park was subdivided, improved
and beautified, is that corner lots with
broad frontages have been among the
first to sell. Within the last week a
number of fine corner lots in St. Fran
cis Wood have been sold for home
sites. It is regarded as particularly
significant that all frontages on San
Fernando way north of St. Francis
boulevard, where two houses are being
built, has been sold. All but four lots
on the west frontage of Santa Bar
bara avenue have been sold to persons
who intend to build homes.

TO START HIGHWAY WORK
RICHMOND, Dec. 12. — Supervisor
Mcßryde reports that everything is
now ready for the construction of the
state highway from Richmond junc

of two surveys above Pinole. This is
only a matter of detail to be settled
later and does not prevent work start
ing along San Pablo avenue.
When the highway is completed a
greater portion of the traffic from the
bay cities to Stockton and Sacramento
will be diverted from the Hayward
route and San Pablo avenue through
Richmond Junction. This will become
a very busy thoroughfare.

hind all the big projects here and its
energies in bringing factories to Rich

biggest industries this city boasts.
Its little excursion to Washington,

enlargement matter with the army
engineers, was one of its notable ac

men taking the trip.
The industrial commission has fac

IT PAYS TO READ THE CALL
Property Owners Organize to
Since the authorization of the con
struction of Twin peaks tunnel, and
the . $4,000,000 project is taking- the
regular course provided for by the
city charter, attention is now being
directed to the extension of Market
street, an associate necessity which
is considered second only in import
ance to the Twin peaks bore.
In order to get concerted action, the
Market Street Extension Property
Owners' asociation has been formeei.
At a meeting of the new organization
held in Improvement hall, 2269 Mar
ket street, last Monday night, the fol
lowing officers were elected: Louis
H. Peterson, president; D. H. Kulzen.
vice president: Charles K. Blender,
secretary; John L. Pollto, treasurer,
and Dr. C. G. Kenyon. M. L. Craig, I.
X. Rosenkranz. M. V. Vanderhof. L.
B. Skellenger, V. Grotwell, John F.
Farley and E. W. Stone, directors.
A large property representation
was there, and it was the unanimous
opinion that a vigorous campaign be
started at once for the extension ot
Market street and the boulevard sys
tem around Twin peaks to the end
that these Improvements may be com
pleted before the exposition year.
,All the Twin peaks district lm«
provement clubs have gone on record
as strongly favoring the project, ami
the owners of property are said tt
be unanimous in having Market street
extended by the 10 year assessment
plan, as previously indicated by a pe.
tition filed with the board of super
TO CHANGE GRADE
The Market street extension plan,
drawn by John M. Punnettywith pos
sible modifications by the city engi
neer's office, will be followed. By
the construction of Twin peaks tun
nel. Market street will be extended
from its present terminus at SevenV
teenth and Castro streets to
eenth and Hattie streets, and as part
of the tunnel proceedings its cost
between these points will be paid out
of the tunnel assessments,
j Tbe proposed plan for the further
extension will follow a contour and
easy grade around the hill, crossing
at Grand View and Romaine streets,
then into Falcon avenue to Grand
View and Corbett to Sloat boulevard
to the beach.
On account of most of the property
along the proposed extension being
vacant and held at a low price, the
cost to the individual property owner
will be small at this time. It is
realized that if Market street Is ever
to be extended—and it must be to
meet the requirements of even the
normal growth of the city—lt must
be done now while the land necessary
to be acquired is undeveloped and the
