In every community we see one or
more farmers who are the marvel of
tbeir neighborhood. With a few
acres, probably not more than two
horses, a few hegs and a cow or two,
they seem to be getting on better
than another who has broad acres
and numbers his stock by hundreds.
Yon will observe, however, on the
first named farm, fences well kept,
stock likewise, with plenty of feed in
eight from year to year. The straw
and corn fodder is all carefully
saved, and, above all, the fertility of
the soil is kept ap br jndicions rota
tion of crops and use of all barnyard
and other manures. Much of the
land will be made to prod nee two
crops per year. The man with the
larger farm will waste more than is
raised on the smaller one, and in
years of crop failure will have to
buy grain to feed so many teams.

only the advent of the. early fall
rains, which sra doe end likely to
come at eny time, will extinguish
these raging forest fires. It is the
prevailing opinion that after the
ravages of the tinmen have been
checked by a we!cotn rain, that the
reported loss of life will be found to
Lave been greatly exaggerated.
However, there is littlo doubt but
what the timber und property loss
will in the aggregate prove appalling.

to build up to the present line of the

Major Kinney also brought the new
that the Booth-Kelly Lumber Comany

did this on the assurance of Major Kin

Another reason for the sucevsj of the
Phoenix, continued Mr. Sauner, is the
fact that our company is the only tne
in California which hss a reserve fund
that absolutely guarantees depositors

this is, that should any losses .cur .n
