Snyder, the Broadway real estate dealer, lias recently added to his already extensive business a department country property. While this is an Innovation with Mr. Snyder, its success has been immediately established from its inception, and during the past montli upwards of $100,000 worth of business has been handled in this department. The most i recent excliange Just now being effected is a trade , whereby the owner of a Contra Costa ranch, valued at $40,-000 becomes the owner of a Napa valley ranch, valued at $25,000, and vice versa, the Napa valley owner takes in the Contra Costa ranch. -This system of exchange is confined to no special line, various country properties being ex changed for city homes or other country properties. The most important deal now pending is a cash sale lor a stock ranch in the, northern part of the state, running over the $100,000 mark. "You would be astonished at the Interest that is being displayed in country property," said A. J. Snyder, "among all classes of clients I have fhquiries for good Country, productive lands. Some of these demands I am being able to supply at once, while some others require considerable effort to find the satisfactory places. " SCENE IN CITY CORPORATION YARDS AT 7 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING. In a very few weks the city of Oak-Is n4 will have oiih of the most rom-tilet watering r s tm of any town, Irreupxtivw of sl;J?TTlie Pacific coast. Already half th l work towards accorn-plitlilng this hasl bc-n done and labor-era are working iliy aftT day Installing the iirw salt wntr pumps nt different points about the city where the bay water can be reached, which will give to this Mty A, street watering system arfcnnd to none. In all, rleven pumps lll noon be at work about the city. Mor. than half this number are in operation, while -the woik at the -following I'U-atlons. where the pumps will In- in-atalled. Is alreadv under way: At the foot 'of Jackson street; at foot of Web ster street, at the C rove street wh.irf, t foot of Fourteenth and at..Twentleth a.nd Harrison streets. All these pumping stations will place Oakland far In advance of other ltles aa to a watering system, but with the Installation of the huge cistern at the Willows on Oak Street. Which Is chiefly for the protection of the residences from fire but from which tne watering carts ran draw. their supply, the excellent system will be completed and the wind can blow and blow with nary the rle of a single Cloud of dust to annoy peJcs-trlun.i. llaffling the wind in Its dust-raising scheme lalnot the least of the advantages afford"d by the sult-water system, lio- fore the carts have traversed Oakland's many thoroughfares not yet bttuminlzed, many weeks, the roads will gradually become hardened and calked as though oil had been poured on them, for the salt deposited on the road bed. after the evaporation of the water, hardens, effecting the ways even better than oil would. All these conditions hnve been brought about by the men of,tii- Oakland corporation yards, under Supervision of As-slstjnt Superintendent of Strr.-t-t v. y-. Hlair. Ii. n tu Hoard of Public Woil s w. cr.n;!e.i Us l;it approprhitb.ii. almost li." entire sum w:': d'-votivl to the belf r.nn nt of thf streets through the effort of the corporal ion -yard men. The large sum the city was expending to keep Its streets well watered throuKhout the; summer was re.ili.ed more by Blair and his men than almost any other official,' A plan was drawn 'up by Which in establishing pumping stations in the vicinity of Lake MerrVtt, water could be drawn at a cost of $4 less than the city-fathers were paying to the People's Water Company. When the feasibility of this plan was seen by those in authority, its carrying out was immediately ordered. The statictm about the lake worked so well that it was decided to plant other pumps at the above mentioned localities. The cost of the installation of a single pump is less -than $100, hence even tually tne Iiew system will prove very economical, j. Each pump is worked by power and the cart drivers in filling the wagon tanks have only to turn a switch to set the -water flowing through the pipes. I At the corporation yards at Ninth and Fallon streets, occupying fully an acre of land, forty men are employed dally There the sprinkling wagons are held over night and the horses stabled. About loo horses are kept on hand in the yards and expert hostlers are employed for their cjiv. ' From the yards each - morning the sprinkling wagons are driven about the city, watering the boulevards from West Knd to East Oakland; Thirty wagons ar-f to be placed in operation this sum mer. eaih vehicle carrying the largest of tanksL the capacity of which is 1000 gallons .iHLiK'--r"r.-.r-....:i ' iil f f O : - : Q Residence of F.
