A fruit packing plant is the next
industry of importance promised for
Sanpete County. N. H. Omanscn o'
Spring City has determined to crcrt
such a plant at his fruit ranch at
Spring City and announces that In
will have it in operation soon.
Mr. Omanscn proposes to both cx-
port and import fruit of all kinds1. He
will handle that which he grows him
self and as much more ias he can gef
control of of that raised by others in
1 this section. He -expects to purchase
I it in bulk, have, it delivered to him at
I Spring Gty where he will pack it and
1 then ship it for market. All fruits and
1 berries are to be handled that way. If
1 tl'-er-c is demand from within for out-
I side fruit of any kind Mr. Omanscn
1 will purchase same and ship here for
1 a market. He is strongly of the
9 opinion that he can build up nn im-
1 portant wdustiy for. himself by his
I . venture and at the same time ma-
terially assist local fruit interests.
The building to be used is now in
course of construction. It is 50 feet
S long of suitable width with basement
fl and cement floors and will be cqtiip
m ped according to modern ideas.
Mr. Omansen expects iet summer
to install 1a1 canning plant at Spring
I City. He lias much fruit Himself
H which can be handled to better ad-
vantVipo by thcC;inning prooess and he
believes he can get many growers to
can their product. The plant will be
of small capacity to begin with, buc
it will be succptiblc of enlargement at
small cost. A fruit and vegetable
canning plant from 1500 to 2500 cans

W. H. Omcnson, the well-known
fruit grower of Spiing City, one of
the few men .who have placed fruit
growing on a scientific basis in this
county, attributes hisNsuccc&s along
this line to the fact that he has used
every possible discretion, in the selec
tion of fruits!. He says that he Ira?
found the conditions in this county
well adapted to the raising of small
fruits and certain kinds of apples. All
of these fruits must of course be
adapted to this locality, and Mr.
Omcnon maintains that Sanpete
would be a good fruit growing county
if the farmers paid more attention to,
the selection of proper varieties. Too
many of the farmers who attempt to
raise fruit in this county, he says,
buy varieties that arc adapted to
warmer climates, and this account
for the fact that the industry is not
as great in this county as it might be
Mr. Omcnson exports approximately
2,000 cases of raspberries -each season.
He. expresses the opinion that this ;s
an industry which cam be developed
so as to be a source of considerable
revenue to the county.

The P. & O. Beet Cultivator requires only one lever to raise or lower M
the gangs. That makes it simple. A supplemental lever levels the gangs M
when one wheel sinks too deeply into the ground. Positively the best M
device ever put on a Beet Cultivator, and to be found on no other. The H
only cultivator that will plow at a uniform depth. Gangs arc held in the M
ground at two points, pressure springs giving an elastic movement to M
overcome unevenness of ground; more rigid than cultivators suspended H
from ccnicr alone. Wheels are pivoted, and under foot control, respond- M
ing to the slightest movement. All P. & O. Beet Tools have features not H
found on others. Our Beet Tool pamphlet explains them Write for it. 1
All P. & O. goods are backed by an unqualified guarantee. Sixty-six H
years of "Knowing How" hammered into every one of them. -l
