TO THE GOLDEN GATE. 215 The tourth year the account stands about thus: Crop, ioo lbs. per tree and 10S trees per acre, ioS.ooo lbs., @ 2 cts. per lb ,160 Fifth year, 150 lbs. per tree, 162,000 lbs., @ 2 cts 3,240 Deduct cost of orchard . ,230 Interest on ,230 for 3 years, @. 10 per cent „- 669 5,400 ,899 Net profits for five years – ,501 Other deciduous trees will show about the same result. As has been stated,the expense account can be largely decreased if a man is willing to take hold andwork. One norse will do all the cultivating ; thirty dollars will buy all the im-plemeii s nee:ed, and there need be no expense for hired help until the grapes orfruit are to be gathered, and enough potatoes and other vegetables can be raisedon the land to furnish a living for the first few years. Beyond Pomona are a number of small stations possessing all the requisites ofclimate, soil and scenery to become thriving towns; which, doubtless, will be theoutcome in a few years. At present
