There wan a "hundred thousand dollar" dinner glvon in Los Angeles Huturday evening. The dinner did not cost 8100,000 but it was given by the iJcaumont Land A Water Company, to-its salesmen, in celebration of the passing of tho 1100,000 mark in the salo of JJoanmont lots and acreage. Tho remarkable feature of thin volume of sal OH is that they have boon made in loss than four months during 'what has boon termed a financial depression, extending over the entire country. This indicates that Hnuthern California has not boun f.oo hard hit, and also, that her citizens know a good thing when thoy HOC it. Hovcntooii covers wore laid on this occasion, at tho Hotel Ilayward and nn excellent menu, mostly Composed of Doaumont products, was presented. President Kyor presided and his snlosroou iu a speech.

Ho remarkable wero tho sales during tho Christmas wook that tho company has boon obliged to hurriedly put, two crews of surveyors in the Mold to subdivide 700 acres of virgin vineyard, poultry and eucalyptus, land, lyinu south of the Soul hern Pacific tracts, much of which is un- derlaid by water at depths from 1<J foot down, this enabling buyers to have their own water plants, For a nominal sum non-resident buyers nan have tho land planted to oucalyptus trees or vinos, Prof. D. C. Jiurson, tho noted tree oxpurt agreeing to furnish plants, cultivate and irrigate the land for two yours until the trees or vinos are car* free and thrifty. Over ton thousand eue.alyptuH trees, soino of which art 7 feet around, oiintaininu up to (i cords of wood, are growing along tin streets of Heaumout, this injuring the success of such culture bnyond doubt. Keports show that a f> aero eucalyptus (arm will produce, splendid revenue for years without practically any expense for labor. Tho wood sells for |M a cord in Ltw Angoles. Crapes at lieaiimont alsi thrive, the acreage yield without ir riyation being reported at iHO t> 1100 HII acre, and tho vinos show groat vitality and extreme longevity.
