In formation may be had at Southern Pacific office. CO-OPERATION FORMED. Some time ago (lie ranchers in Walnut Center decided that water could be raised to the jjurface in a cheaper mariner if Hie work was done at. sonic central Dumping plant, and a co-operation was formed, into which a large number of the land owners in the section were taken. This was the inception of the La Puente Water Company. The company sunk six 15-inch wells to the depth of about. 175 feet, and 15 inches in diameter, and connected these wells with tunnels, in order that the flow could be handled collectively, the tunnels being made at I he water line. A huge pumping plant, was installed, with compound centrifugal pumps driven by two 125-horsepower engines of the Western Gas Engine Company of Los Angeles. The pumps, since their installation, have been producing 064 miner's inches per minute. This plant was tested by City Engineer William Mulholland of Los Angeles. and pronounced to be one of the most, perfect plants in Southern California. This water is being distributed over eight hundred acres of land, and. with the exception of two 100-acre tracts, it is' fed to tracts not over forty acres in size. The shares were sold at the rate of $50 each, one share for each acre owned, and the water is sold to the stockholders by the hour. Not all this stock is yet absorbed. This plant uses steel and vitrified piping, and was built at a cost of $50,000. During this season one rancher, Mr. S. C. Brewster, states that he has cut $325 worth of. alfalfa from twenty-six arces in one cutting, at a cost of $20. Mr. Brewster has a walnut orchard in the best of condition, and his dwelling house and buildings show clearly the presence of prosperity in the country. Elmer E, Cook sold $725 worth of alfalfa from one cutting, taking it from forty acres, and Harry Tvenholm seventy-four tons of alfalfa from forty acres, one cutting, for $10 per ton. Thomas Lambert is another rancher, working sixty acres, who sold, in one year, a crop of potatoes averaging 100 sacks to the acre, and which netted $11,000, at the rate of two cents per pound. This crop is considered an ex ceptional one. One of the remarkable cases of prosperity in this territory is that of the Hurst brothers, who have a •ranch of fifty acres. The land, was . purchased-nesTiiytiiree years ago, for $18,000, and since that time the Hurst, brothers have refused to sell at $30,000. These gentlemen have improved the land, planting walnuts and growing in termediate crops, and a fine residence, with other buildings, has been built, and a pipe line installed. These brothers came from Whittier to make "Walnut Center their home. Some of the ranchers put in a stand of barley or oat. hay, and follow it the same year with a crop of corn. A large numbei of t'ae ranchers bought the land on the installment plan, paying one-quarter of the price down. Almost without exception, the balance has been paid in The price of walnuts is fixed by the California Walnut Association each year, and is based on the scarcity 01 plentifulness of the crop in foreign countries. The association generally sends a representative to Grenoble, ^rance, each year, as this is the home of an immense area of walnut orchards, some of which are centuries old. There is one tree in this vicinity, said to be six hundred years old, from .which several generations of one family have depended solely for a living, the tree being handed down from father to son. All the old orchards in El Monte this year are loaded with nuts, and it is expected that the price will be fixed at a minimum of twelve cents per pound. NEED BETTER ROADS. One drop of bitterness In the cup ai Walnut Center, over which there has been considerable controversy, is tin? condition of the roads. The ranchers are all agreed that they have been overlooked by the supervisor, as no oil has been provided, therefore flu- highways are in a bad condition at al> seasons of the year. Tin- wii'cr was told that when tin- super. Uoral hoard was approached on the mailer, ji v. as suggested that a fund be rai.-."d ii: lie- district for the purpose of pun-basing oil, but no part of (he comity money has been spent as yet in this district. Some action will undoubtedly be tal-ei, I by the residents liefore the \ear ;.over.

It is a new country that has come to stay, and it is well to. say that other communities surrounding it will see in short time Walnut Center will have to be dealt with as an aggressive, hustling town in the business of the San' Gabriel valley.
