PAGE SIX SANTA ANA DAILY REGISTER. MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 29, 1921 WALNUT BUYERS SEE BANNER YEAR AHEAD FOR LOCAL GROWERS Something They Cant Buy Your friends can buy anything you can give them except your photograph. Let us make you photographs you will be proud to give to those you care for. GÜGGENHIME & COMPANY EXPECT TO DISTRIBUTE MORE THAN HALF MILLION DOLLARS TO RANCHERS IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. The Rabe Studio 335 W. H. Spurgeon Bldg. Spot Cash To Growers Has Been a Feature of Walnut Baying For Twenty-three Years and Will Be Appreciated by Local People This Season. doing business, according to Manager Smith, but the feature that probably is most appreciated by the growers of walnuts, he says, is the “spot cash” system of buying. During the lean years and fat, in the time it has done business here, the Guggenhime Company has always met the situation with an apparently unliitiitec» purse. Immediate cash is always desirable, ranchers say, but in years such as 1921, when the lack of ready money has been .elt in all parts of the United States and ranchers have been handicapped through their inability to lay their hands on unlimited funds, the money paid local growers by the Guggenhime Company will have a stimulating influence on local business generally. The quicker money can be realized fr un the 1921 crops in Southern California the sooner trade will se'.rie hack to normal, according to popular opinion, and while conditions have been better here than in some other sections of the country, it is fe’t that the cash handed out by the Guggenhime Company this season will be especially timely. Large Demand for Crop The walnuts bought by the Guggenhime Company are shipped direct to eastern markets. Manager Smith is convinced that the early shipments will find the supply in the East entirely exhausted. “In the past,” he said, “it has been a custom for some firms to placo a large volume of walnuts in storage to await better prices, but last year owing to peculiar demands and a limited crop, very few walnnts were stored. I regard the situation as decidedly favorable. The nuts we ship East will be of excellent quality. The price will probably be above the average.” Like nearly all other companies doing business on a large scale, the Guggenhime Company looks well to the best interests of its clients. The information furnished by the company regarding the care of walnut trees, the harvesting of the crop and the walnut market has proved of the greatest value to hundreds of local growers. Manager Smith does not look upon any reasonable services as too troublesome if there is any manner in which he can make himself useful to his* clients. Since the first year of its operation in Santa Ana, Mr. Smith says, his company has paid out to Orange county walnut men the sum of $15,500,000.00 Adding the money distributed to fruit an 1 honey producers would increase the amount by several million dollars. As the walnut and fruit-growing industry develops the Guggenhime Company has fully kept pace. Each year sees added equipment and greater effort to serve the public. Each succeeding season ends with a greater amount of cash haviDg been turned over to local ranch men with which to build up their ranches and add to the general prosperity and development of the "Biggest Little County on Earth.” More than half a million dollars ready money, to be distributed to local walnut growers by Guggenhime <t Company within the next few weeks, is expected to have a stimulating influence upon business generally in Orange county. The first of the crop is already being gathered and shippers say the market will be brisk on account of the small supply available at present. The heaviest crop in many seasons is said to be about ready for the harvest. DON LOVERIDGE, Prop. The fact that a great majority of the Traveling Commercial Salesmen are regular guests at the new Rossmore speaks highly for the service. Commercial Salesmen are particular. You may be particular, too, but after you’ve tried it you’ll want to be a guest at the Rossmore often. Better Groceries and China According to W. M. Smith, manager of Guggenhime & company, walnut buyers of Santa Ana, 1921 is going to be a banner year for the walnut men of Orange county. The crop is heavy and the price should be good because the surplus which is ordinarily held in storage by some firms is practically exhausted. “With an unusually large crop and no available supply now on the market there is no reason why local growers should not reap a harvest this season,” Mr. Smith said this morning. Last year the Guggenhime company paid to walnut growers in Orange county the total sum of $750,000.00. This year the total is expected to climb considerably above that figure. The company is now signing contracts with local ranchers and is offering them spot cash for the walnuts when delivered at the Guggenhime plant. Thirty-three Years Service Guggenhime & company of San Francisco, seeing possibilities of very important developments in this county, opened up a branch walnut and fruit buying plant here in 1888. They operated in a small frame building on Washington street. The present building, covering a very large floor space and storage capacity was erected in 1903. In season it is always worked to full capacity. While the buying and shipping of walnuts is the chief feature of the business the firm also gives considerable attention to the packing and shipping of dried fruits and honey helping to provide an outlet for the vast volume of such commodities produced in Orange county and the neighboring counties to the east. Average $500,000 a Year Since the Guggenhime plant opened in Santa Ana thirty-three years ago the average amount of cash distributed among Orange county growers by the company has been in round figures $500,000.00 a year. Many of the ranchers who started out selling to the Guggenhime Company when it first opened up for business here are still regular clients.
