.'*« THE o fc V t) I S a 1 fi a il SMALL INVESTOR'S OPPOR TUNITY. This part of Southern California is dotted with Eucalyptus trees planted for beauty, fuel, or to break the force of -winds, but none have yet, been, planted in past years for commercial us ( \ Small tracts are much IMS apt to be f ; ven the care in planting and cnltiva- tion, and are far more difficult to put on the market. Tor none but largo tracts would justify the establishment of wood-working plants to turn the trees into finished manufactured pro ducts. All over this section arc r;i:u:lc trees which, for fuel alone are worth 91-5 to $25, and for finishing lumber, [ S tat posts, ties, wagon material, insulation pins, and clothes pins, are worth many times sxich 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 oxpect practically this whole number of trees to be 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 ir trust the deed to the property delivering deeds to the small tracts, free of all encumbrance and charges as soon as the pavments are made. NOTE THIS: ALL RISK OF LOSS AND ALL COST OF CULTIVATION comes during the first three year;;. The tract lies immediately west of litiwa 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 lor, 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 Jbe made in the contract. Suppose now that only the guaranteed number of trees is matured, and that it takes twenty years for the trees NOTICE OF SALE OF REAL ESTATE AND PERSONAL. PROPERTY.

If it were placed at the exact point of coincidence and its diameter and distance from the eye accurately measured, it miglii lie used as a means of determining tho sun's diameter, his distance being known. The foremost philosophers of long ago would have been appalled al the true statement of both tho sun's distance and its sl/.e. The sun's diameter Is about fi(U5,0<)0 miles. It. Is bewildering to be assured that it would take 1,:;OU,()OO earths to equal tin; sun in volume. If the Interior of that truly gigantic globe were hollow and tin.' earth were placed at HH '•enter with the moon revolving about It at its usual mean distance of nearly 2-10,00') miles, there would still exist a vacultj between the moon ;yul the Inclosing shell of the sun of nearly i!00,000 miles. This Is perhaps the most graphic and impressive illustration possible of the sun's colossal bulk. \Ve must note, however, that the density of the sun is only about one-quarter that of the earth, HO that it would weigh only as much as .'{.'ill,i)<!0 earths) In very round numbers the sun's weight may be stated at two octillion tons, which if expressed In figures would require almost as many ciphers an a newspaper line can accommodate. A very comprehensive illustration of the pygmean dimensions of the earth as compared with the nun Is to represent tin.- latter by a globe two feet In diameter »nd the en.'th by a dainty pea.
