THOMAS HARDY




well-proportioned mind is one which
shows no particular bias ; one of
which we may safely predicate that
it will never cause its owner to be
confined as a madman, tortured as a heretic,
or crucified as a blasphemer; also, on the other
hand, that it will never cause him to be ap-
plauded as a prophet, revered as a pjiest, or
exalted as a king. Its usual blessings are
happiness and commonplace. It produces the
poetry of Rogers, the paintings of West, the
statecraft of North, the spiritual guidance of
Sumner; enabling its possessors to find their
way to affluence, to wind up well, to step
with dignity off the stage, to die comfortably
in their beds, and to get the decent monument
which, in many cases, they deserve. It never
would allow a man to do such a ridiculous
thing as throw up his business to benefit his
fellow-creatures.

Any one interested in finance does not fail to find the

J of the stamp system of savings one in which there is
food for thought. Undoubtedly it is the best system
in the world to encourage small savings.
In Germany it has resulted in the
hoarding up of millions of marks by the
poor people, who call down blessings
upon its originator.

The 5-cent stamp system is in full
operation at the People's Home Sav-
ings Bank, and those who have investi-
gated it are convinced of its efficacy.

About 11,000 stamp-saving books
have been issued by the bank to the
people of San Francisco. In each book
are ten or fifteen deposit cards, and
when enough stamps have been pur-
PeOple's Home St&mp. chased from time to time to fill one of
the cards, that card is worth a dollar at
the People's Home Savings Rank, 805 Market Street, corner
4th. As an object lesson in saving to the youth of the land
the stamp system is invaluable.

MADERA, FRESNO COUNTY, CAL

75 BUSINESS PROPOSITION

A Money-Making Plan Based Upon Sound Principles

HISTORY OF A GREAT UlfDEB I A K 1M . .

Four years ago the idea of the John Brown Colony * ae firs! suggested. So radically dif-
ferent is it from the usual plan of colonization that it \\;i> nearly ;i year before much progress
was made in forming the colony. So many swindling schemes have been sprung upon the
public in real estate transactions, that people were slow to take advantage of this offer until
they were thoroughly convinced that it would be honestly co ndu c te d. With the establishment
of this fact the lands were rapidly taken, until now the original tract is all subscribed for and
in process of cultivation.

PROFIT OF FRUIT-GROWING IN CALIFORNIA.

The large profits realized by California fruit-growers make a ten or twenty acre lot equal in
value to a farm of a quarter-section in the grain-growing States. The average yield is from
$100 to $300 per acre yearly, while exceptional cultivation and some varieties of fruits bring
the astonishing yields of $500 to $1,000 per acre. The fruit industry, too, has been found to be
one of the safest and surest in the United States. It is a common thing in the older colonies
to find colonists living in luxury upon a twenty-acre tract, while those owning larger acreages
are rapidly accumulating wealth.

THE FIRST TRACT DISPOSED OF.

As the above facts came to be generally understood, there was no delay on the part of the
people in taking these lands, so that in a very short time the entire tract of 3,060 acres was
taken in lots of five acres and upwards. One thousand acres was planted to raisin grains in the
winter of 1890 and this winter ('90 and '91) the remaining 2,060 acres will be planted to grapes,
figs and other fruits.

LAND VALUES.

The fact of such large profits from California lands makes their cultivation mean far more
in this country than in those of the .main-growing States. Land that will yield a yearly in-
come of $100 per acre is worth at least $500 per acre. Estimating upon the basis of a ten per
cent, profit upon the capital invested, ft is worth $1,000, but to say $500 is making it strong
enough. Now grain-growing land throughout the West is not worth more than $40 to $60 per
acre and one cannot take up new land worth $15 to $25 and make it worth in three or four years
even $40 unless it be in exceptional instances ; whereas in California, land that is worth $100 per
acre raw, is certainly worth $500 within three years' time if properly set to fruits and well
tended, and double that time will make it worth'$l, 000. This is one of the secrets of rapid money-
making in California. The practical question, however, which presents itself to one unable to
move to this country, either from lack of means or from business, such that it is impossible to
leave it for a time, is

HOW CAN I PROCURE SUCH A PLACE AND HAVE IT MADE TO PRODUCE WITHOUT MY PERSONAL

ATTENTION !

We have solved this question in the plan of our colonies. We take a large tract, divide it
into small lots, taking five acres as our unit, and dispose of the whole tract in five-acre lots, or
of any number of them in one body, asking only that the means necessary to plant out the land
and cultivate it for three years be paid as needed to perform the work. We do all the work and
Care for the crops until they have yielded enough to pay for the land, when it is then deeded to
the purchaser costing him in actual cash outlay the price named for cultivation. He has not

eded to undergo the expense of removal, erection of buildings, cash payment upon land nor
b many expenses incidental to individual operation. On the other hand if £ W ■ boot
in, he is left at his regular employment thus assuring him his support and enough mea£ bo
ep up the expense of cultivation, and when he is ready to remove to his land it is vieldinc
m a nice income instead of demanding large outlays. Or, if one simply takes land in this
lony as an investment, not intending to make it his home, he will proem ertv which

11 yield him each year as much as it has cost him in cash outlay. Thus it will he sit-n that
lile it brings within reach of the colonist all the advantages of the ordinary colon v it lessens
b expense of acquiring such a property to half or one-third the actual cash outlav usual
ired. The idea is that of co-operation in all the expense until the pi bnmghl ui

.ducing condition and the land is paid for, when it becomes the individual ....,,„ ,t\ ol the
bscriber. It is evident that to purchase a large tract of land it maj , n\s

in a small one ; also that by doing the work on a large scale, under one management not onh

Kiy the cost be brought down much lower than if it wen- all done under individual ou aanhip
d management, but that more uniform results may be secured ; l>esides ev. nows tint

5 greatest bar to individual enterprise of this sort is the coinparativ. mlav necessary

begin. The great number of people who live upon a salary and
rtake the work of procuring such a home is very large, and without Rich a plan B
1 never hope to become independent land-owners.



A FEW QUESTIONS ANSWERED.

1. Our tract is from two to five miles from R. R. station.

2. It is two to five miles from Madera and twenty from Fresno.

3. Water rights are a part and parcel of the land and cannot be separated from it.

4. Water for domestic use is found at from 50 to 75 feet (surface water at 10 i-
?st and best quality.
6. The elevation above sea level is 300 feet.

6. It is forty miles to the mountains and only 100 miles to the famous Yosemite Vail-
wned all over the world for its remarkable scenery.

7. Plenty of deer are found in the mountains and foothills, and small game such as .piail
;ks, geese, rabbits, etc., abound in the valley. If you are of the dangerous, yell<

you can receive satisfaction by clambering up high into the mountains and encounti
i in.

8. The rainy season begins in October and ends in April. It does not rain all the time l.ut
much as it does in the East during the summer.

9. The climate is fine for consumptives if they come in time for it t<> help them. Rheum*
catarrh and kindred troubles are usually helped.

10. Fog is almost unknown here in the summer, and it only occurs in winter during damp
ither during which times it will be foggy in any land.

11. The sea breeze reaches us in the afternoon, blowing from the northwest.

12. The soil of the land we offer is alluvial, deep and strong.

13. Good oak wood is sold at six dollars a cord.

14. Groceries and provisions are a little higher than in the East in BOOM items. Flom
it are about the same price.

15. Lumber is worth from $15 for refuse to $35 per M. f'<>r best.

16. Wages for farm laborers are $30 per month and board, the man furnishing nil own
ikets.

17. There is less danger from earthquakes than there is in the East, and none at all fr<»m
; lightning, which is seldom seen.

18. Strawberries can be had ten months out of twelve.

19. Good teachers can always find a position. Teachers' wages range from $60 to $125 per
month.

20. All attainable Government land is of rugged nature, not capable of irrigatioi

taut from business centres, and it would require more capital to settle on it than d for

j settlement in close neighborhoods.

81. Our land is entirely level, has no brush, trees nor stones upon it, and Is to dkall.

22. While at Washington and Philadelphia people fall dead in the streets with the
mometer at 90 degrees, in the San Joaquin valley the hay harvest is gathered '" absolute safety
with the thermometer at 1 10 degrees. The exceedingly dry a tmo s phere promotes rapid evapora-
tion, which works this apparent wonder.

If vou desire land in this colony, send the money to Bank of Madera. Treasurer, $800 per
, five-acre lot if you wish it planted this winter, otherwise $150 which will secure you the Jot ami
put it in preparation for planting to the best of advantage next year. Send money by ban it
draft. Do not send personal checks as it costs exchange to colled them
