FRANCIS WOOD O'.mstead Brothers' elaborate scheme for the parkways and parks in St Francis Wood is now being put Into effect, and the brilliant strips of .geraniums which have made an ef fective show will gradually be re placed by more permanent and beau tiful planting of trees, shrubs and flowers.

Many of these plants have been propa gated in the large nurstry at St, Francis Wood, but numbers of the larger and rarer plants have been secured from nurseries ln ofher parts of the state.

The street tree in this case is Lyonatharmus floribundus, the beautiful ironwood of the channel islands of southern California, found nowhere else in the world, while the shrubs include the California Christ-' mas berry, Matilijia poppies and other beautiful Califocnia flowering plants.

San Francisco J THE SAX FRAXCTSCO CALE AND PORT, SATTXRT)AY, DECEMBER 27. 1913 HARBOR BUILDING GIVES ASSURANCE All Richmond Benefits; Buyers in Harbor Center Are Pleased RICHMOND. Dec. 27.—"This Is the great era of harbor development about San Francisco bay. It will go down in the history of this section as auch. Harbor improvements are making values, and will make greater onea. The Panama canal assures that." These words, which are, in fact, a prediction of growth to Richmond, which city is using: all her energies toward developing more shipping; fa cilities, came from a Chico business man, one of a pool of several in the northern part of the state who made the recent investment of $100,000 in Wall's harbor center subdivision. He came here this week to look at his property. "These purchases now in such a city as Richmond," he said, "are absolute* ly certain to bring: the investor re turns far beyond his expectations, even though they may be set high. There are few cities in the world with such certainty of development as Richmond has where you can still get property at the low prices and on the easy terms that you can in Richmond. While from my investigations I be lieve that every lot will increase greatly ln value, I prefer Harbor Cen ter, because It is so situated that the business development simply must come to It. In a few years Harbor Center property, 1 believe, will be get ting the values of some of the good San Francisco and Oakland property that Is now beyond the reach of the smaller investor." Rains and holidays are not in any way stopping sales in Harbor Center. A big business is being done in this subdivilon. More building operations are planned. John L. McNab Will Live at Ingleside John L McNab. former United States district attorney, has pur chased one of the choicest lots in Ingleslde Terraces, and is planning an elegant home along Italian Re naissance lines, work upon which is to begin early in the spring.

McNab decided upon the purchase of the property after an hour's automo bile tour ln the beautiful residence park west of Twin Peaks. MISSION STREET IS ACTIVE James W.

E. N. Tapscott, owner of Richmond Junction, said yesterday: "There is not a city in America today that has the possibilities and future of Rich mond, nor Is there a city ln this coun try that has shown the rapid growth ln population with its accompanying rapid rise In real estate valuations. Although many people have been com plaining of an off year, I have been exceptionally busy in Richmond Junc tion. We have gone over the $750. --000 mark since April, so you can see we have not been idle. "The coming of ttie new state high way is going to bring a great deal of traffic through Richmond from the Interior of the state, which formerly went around by Hayward. As this highway runs past Richmond Junc tion I can see a very rapid develop ment around San Pablo and Macdon ald avenues. "I \believe 1914 Is going to be the greatest year of all in Richmond, be cause eastern people are coming now In greater numbers to build homes and factories for the opening of the canal."
