I I Journal of 'Brigham City, had an
-y& article on the greatness of the
I f t state, about one-half of which
fe was devoted to Iron county.

fertile sections of the whole
state of Utah. The soil is a fine
sandy loam with a depth of 80
feet in some' sections This
depth is determined by a well
that was sunk for water to sup
ply a pumping plant. Some
wells there are only 8 feet deep
and they have a good permanent
supply for culinary use. '
The land now is being reclaim
ed. Several hnudred acres have
been cleared and some crops
planted. The virgin soil is cov
ered with a heavy growth of
sage brush ranging in heighth
from two to eight feet. The
New Castle Land company has
secured 20,000 acres. A hotel
has been built and several new
cottages. The tract is fenced
and by means of a storage reser
voir and a canal, it will be placed
under irrigation. Hundreds of
home seekers are investing
there, and the railroad is prepar
ing to build to the new townsite
next year, spring of 1914. The
climate is about like the climate
of Brigham City.. It is higher
and the atmosphere much light
er, hence tne cold is not so op
pressive. The water will be on
the land in time .for irrigation
and already plowing is begun.
Mr.Brackon, formerly of the
Raymond-Bracken Auto com
pany of Salt Lake, is' on tfie
ground with automobiles to, es
cort hoMweakers ove the tract.
He also has a large gasoline
plow and ditcher and is kept
Very busy on the project.
, With the development of the
lands of Utah several hundred
thousand farmers are wanted.
Not only in Iron county is this
true but in Boxelder, county al
so. Several thoasandiacres cov
ered with dull grey sage, in Box
elder county, are waiting for the
magic hand of industry and there
is no need of any man being
idle. Nature's wealth-is begun
for development in Utah and
Utah's sons should do their por
tion of the work. We, too often,
wait until it is too late, then
complain about strangers secur
ing the cream. Fertile lands,
marble quarries, rich mines and
other great things are open be
fore the young man of Utah.

Proposition is Made tho People
of Cedar City by Salt
As a result of the visit recent
ly of U. T. Jones of this city to
Salt Lake City, the San Pedro
railroad officials have submitted
a proposition to the people of
Cedar City for the construction
of a branch line to this place.
The railroad company agrees
to furnish the steel rails neces
sary to construct the line, and
two gasoline compartment cars
for use on the road, if the people
will do the required grading and
furnish the ties.
The matter has been referred
to the Commercial Club and will
be thoroughly investigated be
fore any conclusion is reached.
-"" ' ' ' M. ,H
The Beaver Press is the latest
paper in this section to bewail
the fact that Cedar City has se
cured a Carnegie library, and in
an article in the last issue says
that Beaver is ''just as able and
just as deserving" as Cedar City.
Wo should like to ask .the Press
if Beaver has been supportiag a
public library heretofore ; if not,
what grounds has she to claim to
bo "just as deserving?"
