When •-'.me of the ((real trees in Santa Clara i-ounly were first cut for lutnlier and nianiif.'u:tiiriiiK purposes the experiment was regarded with pronounced suspicion hy ex|i(.-rieiiced lumber men, 'I lie result <>l the experiment w;r. profilalile beyond all expectation. 'I'he character of the wood was more carefully investigated and tested, 'i he railroads saw the opportunity in it for them and both the Santa I'e and the Southern Pacific roads arc now planting thousands of acres for their future supply of tics and piling. l'"rancis Ilosp, who worked out Smiley Heights in Redland-;, and who be^un the par!-:-; in I'o- moiia, is now ent;aned by (.lie Santa (•'.• in superintending the plaining and cultivation of its ^rcat aci'ean'' of eucalyptus'. One of the assistant slate foresters has recently resigned hi*, position to take similar work. Thi: territory adapted to the cultivation of lliib tree is limited to the lowland section.-; of California and Ari/.ona. The tree demands a moderate climate and a soil which has deep underground irrigation. Those who have investigated the subject declare tha! the Imperial valley can never produce, eucalyptus trees suitable for,making up into fmish- inK lumber, owing to tlie fact that all the irrigation of that valley is surface work and that tlie drainage into the rivers will prevent deep routing of the trees. It matters littK how deep beneath the siirfaci' the moisture is, if only there is .-.ullicient moisture to keep the tree, living until the roots can go down to the constant supply of water. It is thought that the trees will root as deeply ;i.s two hundred feet if water is to be found at that depth. Where the Ires are grown in sufficient quantity to justify putting up mills and factories the trees which now are used for fuel will be found to be worth many times as much as now. The wood of some varieties of eucalyptus is fully as valuable as black walnut and mahogany for finishing lumber; some varieties last loiij^ under ground and are especially valuable for ties anil po>ts; others are tile best possible substitutes for hickory, a-h and oak, for wa^on parts and similar Uses. I he commercial value of the eiicalyp- tiiM trees ii; this MTlion is \-ei ID be determined. When (.'"I. Chapman was I'Mlling down his splendid row of trees mi ( lenena avenue, an expert ia eucalyptus who happened io pass bv remarked that that row of trees was worth far more for permanent results than any si\ rows of trees in the ^love aihinniu^ I liis may have been tnie had there been a mill and factory available for converting the wood into some finished factory product. With tlie widespread interest in the industry it is almost certain that the coining years will see the experiments, of the p.i^t turned into profitable tisane, jiiid much o! otherwise miiiiipiovcd land be turned into pi'olit.ible lll\ eslinent.

W. NASH Prescription Druggist g 1 THE BROADWELL STORE Dependable Footwear. Shoe clerks are aot chiropodists and are not competent to prescribe instep supports. If your feet need attention go to a man who.makes it a business. Instep supports cost 75c and retail for $3.00. The store gets 70c and the clerk Si-50 for selling 1 them. It's come to a point in Los Angeles where clerks try to sell instep supports to people for their dogs. We will furnish $3.00 instep supports fcr 85c. Very few people need them. We will sell you honest and reliable footwear from the best manufacturers in this country at prices 20 per cent less than our city friends, nor will we try to sell you instep supports, corn salve and a dozen other things you don't need. We have had years of experience in the shoe business and our word and judgment ought to stand with an $18.00-a-week shoe clerk, whose only recommend is the store's Broadway location and plate front. We carry as many shoes as stores who make a great deal more show and know more about our business. This handsome new shoe, made from Ofister & Vogel's newest velvet calf. For people who appreciate good shoes. Best oak soles. $4.00 Dry Goods Women's Sample Shoes $2.00 All sixes. Shoes advertised as samples are not really sample shoes but are job lots. We can sell you a good shoe for $2.00, but not every style. Many of these shoes are worth $3.50 and $3.00 per pair. We do not make the outrageous claim of their value made by some stores. We can sell you women's patent leather oxfords at 85c per pair that look like $2.50 shoes. We have boys' tan shoes and oxfords at less than the leather cost. We offer children's calf shoes, & 1 /* to 11, at $1.00 pair, and they are good shoes too. Wo offer a few pairs Utx & Dunn's Acme cushion sole shoes, plain toe, $4.00 grade, size 4,'j to 0, at $3.00 per pair. Not damaged or shopworn; new goods. Women's Shoes $3.50 and $4.00 A customer of ours who was paying us $4.00 for the Acme shoo which wore her eight months took it into hor head to buy a pair of $4.00 shoes for $3 50 at a big department store's removal sale. They wore her 2 1 .- months or $1.00 per iiumth. Ours cost her 50c per month. Anothsr customer quit us for u pair of $3.00 department store shoes which we noticed in the shoe shop for a half sole in eight days. Bv the \, they will pull off another big fire sale soon, as liu'v h.ive a factory f»'r the maiiiifacture ot fire sale yo.'ils up on Hill street. It's running night and day. l>iil you ever >top to think that if goods were prkvd i it! lit in ihe tir^t place there would be very few reduction-^'.'

During the years we have engaged in business in tLis city we have tried every possible and impossible method of merchandising, bargain sales, special sales, cheap goods and good goods. We found bargain sales unsatisfactory as some misrepresentation is nearly always necessary. Special sales create hard feelings as customers do not like changing prices. Cheap merchandise never gives satisfaction, and in the country our customers hold us strictly accountable for quality. We want business. We can buy cheap goods as cheap as anyone and sell them cheaper, but we find more people return because an article was good than because it was cheap. No two stores sell every article the same. We will in future confine ourselves to well-known brands, goods whose established reputation is above suspicion. We will sell them as close as we can and live and pa)' our help decent wages. There is no such thing as something fur nothing. If there was, vuii would be robbing your neighbor if yuu took it. If Providence has given you your share of this world's goods, live and let live—and that means to stand by your town, your .~>tate, your cuun- trv. and do the square thi'i'f by your neighbors.
