THE SMALL INVESTOR'S OPPOB TUNITY. fbls part of Southern California Is dotted -with Eucalyptus trees planted for beauty, fuel, or to break tlio force Of winds, but none have yet been planted in past years for commercial use. Small tracts are much less apt to bo given the care in planting and cultivation, ami are far more difficult to put on the market. For none but large tracts would justify the establishment of wood-working plants to turn the trees into finished manufactured products, jUl over this section are single trees which, for fuel alone are worth 815 to S25, and for finishing lumbar, posts, ties, wagon material, insulation pins, and clothes pins, are worth many times such sums. Planted eight feet apart each way there are 680 trees to each acre. By watchful oversight during the first year and by careful cultivation during the first three years, there is every reason to expect practically this whole number of trees to ba brought through to maturity. •The Etiwa Eucalyptus Company has a half section of the best land yet devoted to Eucalyptus. Fifty five-acre tracts are to be planted and put on the market. Oscar Roessner, accredited by the State Horticultural Bureau as one of the best qualified growers of Eucalyptus trees in this state, will select the trees and have exclusive direction of the work of planting them out and caring for them during the first year and the company stands responsible for two years thereafter. The Savings Bank and Trust Company of Pomona will act as trustee of the entire tract, collect the payments and guarantee the fulfillment of every contract obligation to the purchasers. The taxes, interest, and all charges for cultivation will be paid by the Trustee, and it will hold in trust the deed to the property delivering deeds to the small tracts, free of all encumbrance and charges as soon as the payments are made. NOTE THIS: ALL RISK OF LOSS AND ALL COST OF CULTIVATION comes during the first three years. The tract lies immediately west of Etiwa station on both sides of the Southern Pacific railroad, and will be open at all times to the inspection of purchasers who will have no need to take the word of anybody but may see for themselves how their investment progresses. The tracts will be sold at the rate of $20 down and $5 monthly payment for 36 months for each acre. All unpaid payments may be discounted at any time, 10 per cent, being allowed for cash. If for any reason it becomes impossible for the purchaser to continue the payments till the tract is fully paid for, a deed for a proportionate acreage will be delivered on application. A guarantee of 600 living trees on each acre sold at the end of three years, will be made in the contract. Suppose now that only the guaranteed number of trees is matured, and that it takes twenty years for the trees to become worth $10 each. These figures are extremely grotesque, in the face of growth of eucalyptus trees to be found all through the Cucamonga ..and Etiwanda district. But take tbese figures as a possible basis: Each acre will then be worth $6,000, a net return of $300 per acre annually for that time. There is no reason to believe but that the trees will be worth that sum in less than half the time mentioned. YOU ARE DEALING WITH HOME PEOPLE.

It Is IntorostliiK and somewhat curious to noti' tiie persisti'iico with which misfortune has iloswd tho name of "John" whon homo by royal persons, although no ill omen seems to ntinch to it In the cast.- of ordinary c-Iti/.euB. For Instance, KInj,' .lolm of Kugland has always IK-CM regarded, whether nl- tosether justly or not. ns a most Infamous prince. John of France was takc-M captive- by the Black Prince, nnd John Bitlliol 01' Sent him' WEB most thoroughly despised by his countrymen on account of his fawning attitude toward the KiiKl'sih. Ttot.ert III. of Scotland changed his name from John, hut this did rjt save him from his destiny. He hlianetf was a cripple and died of n broken heart, the mo^t tragic fates Imd'ig overtaken all mot! 1 dear to him. John I. of Bahemla was blind. Thr Pope John I. wa* Imprisoned by tin king of the Goths, nnd Pope John K. was driven from Rome by the Duke of Tuscany. Pop* John XI. was linpris oned by his brother and is supposed to have been poisoned, :: faie similar to that of Pope John XIV. Pope John XV. was forced to flee from Home nnd died of fever In Tu*any. Violin XVI., dubbed the "antipole," after a troubled career, was brutally tortured and consigned to a dungeon for the brief remainder of his life. John I. of Constantinople was poisoned; John II. was killed while hunting wild l>oar, and John III. was dethroned, his eyes put out and left to die in prison. Jo"hn I. of Castile \vas kilted by a fall from his horse. This Is not hy any means a complete list of the unlucky Johns, but It serves to show the fatality which seems to cling about the name in so far as royalty lit concerned.—Chicago Record Herald. : NOTICE OF SALE OF REAL ESTATE i AND PERSONAL PROPERTY, !
