V A WORD OF WARNING.
jBo the Dcscrct Farmer.
J As a result of several weeks of
rather careful observation in Salt

A THOUSAND PER ACRE IS DE
CLINED FOR FRUIT LAND.
As an instance of the rapid and in
some ways phenomenal increase in
la.nd values in the famous Graifd Val
ley fruit region, the experience of Dr.
W. A. E. DcBcquc of Dicnvcr is con
spicuous. Dr. DcBcquc was one of
the pioneers of the Grand river coun
try and about 20 years ago he secured
400 acres of land in the Grand river
valley between thc places where the
towns of Palisade and DcBcquc now
stand. Part of the land was procured
from the government and part by pri

SUGfR BEETSl I
FALSE REPORT AS TO BEETS.
Black Root Has No Effect on Beet
Plants in This County Big
Some agitation has been caused
among the beet growers in this vicini
ty by a letter sent to the Agricultural
College by one Erastus Peterson,
now engaged in irrigation work in
this county, in which it was stated
that the foccts in the vicinity of Rich
field were suffering and dyjng with a
disease called "black root." E. G.
Titus, of the Logan school immediate
ly wrote to W. II. Sccgmillcr asking
about the disease and Mr. Sccgmillcr
turned' the matter over to F. B. Goold
who has charge of the beet fields of
this part of the country for the sugar
Mr. Goold investigated the matter
and found that the late, backward
spring had caused a blackening of the
beets, but this is common to this part
of the state and is found on the beets
at some part of the early season every
season. In his study of the beet con
ditions Mr. Goold has seen this every
spring, and as soon as the weather
warms up the blackness disappears H
and it seems to have 'no particular H
effect on the plants. JM
He reported in this manner to Mr. H
Titus, and added that, the beet crop M
is looking better in this country than M
it has ever looked since 'beet raising H
was inaugurated in the county. M
George Austin of the sugar com- M
pany was in Sevier .County the past M
week looking over the beet fields and M
in conversation with a Reaper re- H
porter he confirmed the report of Mr. H
Goold as to the splendid condition of M
the beets in the contry. The outlook M
for a big crop was never more prom- M
ising as this year. In company with fl
Mr. Goold he had just made a tout H
of inspection and he was more titan M
pleased with the conditions. Rich- H
