Sonora Offers Many Opportunities and
American Farmers Arc Taking
Advantage of Them.
Guaymas, Sonora, Jlexico. Feb. 27.
Of the large tracts of land reported
as sold to Americans, and since sub
divided, various areas have been sold,
including 548,500 acres in Hermosilio
and Guaymas districts, of which about
60,000 acres were sold to actual farmers
and the balance to speculators. The
buyers numbered some 350, of whom
about 100 are farmers, and about 25
have already moved on their land.
It costs about $8 per acre to prepare
land for corn and sow it. after clear
ing. The average crop is from 40 to
100 bushels and the selling price from
80 cents to $1.25 gold per bushel. For
garbanzos the cost of preparing land
and sowing is about the same asor
corn. The production averages 200
pounds per acre, and the selling price
is about $60 per ton. When beans are
sown -with corn there Is practically no
further cost, but won sown alone the
cost is about ?8 per acre. The pro
duction per acre .is about 40 bushels,
and the selling "price JS.50 per 100
pounds. The aoove figures are for
cultivation without irrigation, but on
land properly irrigated the amount pro
duced could eaisily be doubled and In
many cases treDled.
In the valley of the Sonora river,
west of the city of Hermosilio. is a
large area of very fertile land, im
mense areas of which. haTe been put on
the market during the last few years
by different coiuyianies, at prices rang
ing from ?1 to ?lir rr aero.
A few ranches and orange groves
near the city get plenty of water, and
farther down some ranches obtain wa
ter enough to raise the staple crops
of corn and beans, with some wheat,
and a little garbanzo.
Various plans have been on foot
from time to time to put in a storage
dam but up to the present time nothing
has come of it.
K. S. "Woglum. government agent,
from "Whittier, California, has arrived
to inspect the orange groves around
Guaymas and Hermosilio, looking for
the Mexican fruit fly. that produces
the orange maggot. Mr. "Woglum said
that on the orange trees around Guay
mas he found no evidence of the Mex
ican fruit fly. If he finds none on
the trees in the vicinity of Hermosilio
tne quarantine will be lilted and Mex
i an oranges will be allowed to pass

State College Issue Bulletin on

The Mcnllla Valley.
State College. N. H.. Feb. 27. A bul
letin Issued by the agricultural depart
ment of the state college says:
"Alfalfa is a very nardy plant and
will withstand considerable drouth.
This hardiness or drouth resistance is
in large measure due to the fact that
the roots Tienetrate deeply! into the
soil, and any moisture whiclr is present
in the -soil, even at considerable depth,
is utilized to keep the plant alive, even
though, there is insufficient amount to
produce much growth. To have the
pant produce heavy cuttings at regular
intervals, it will be found necessary
to supply water in large quantities,
as the ground should be quite moist
throughout the growing season. The
reason for this is readily seen: 1st,
having a large leaf surface, a great
quantity of water is given off: and

the bay crop h$s ben removed and again
in about two weeks. However, this
may not be enough in some instances.
To get the best results, the ground
should be as moist as the harvesting
operations will allow at the time of
cutting. In this way the growth will
be but slightly checked.
"Winter irrigation, in the strict
sense of the word, is not practiced to
any great extent throughout the Me
silla -Valley, but it will be found that
irrigating once during the winter will
keep the ground from cracking and
the soil will not dry out so badly. If
the field Is being used for pasture dur
ing the winter months, an occasional
irrigation "will cause the alfalfa to
start growth and thereby furnish bet
'Tn the early spring it is well to
irrigate at regular intervals and in
this way keep the soil well saturated.
In this condition the alfalfa is better
able to "withstand the cold, frosty
nights, and will commence growth S3
soon as the "warm days arrive.
"Old alfalfa fields should be disked
thoroughly each spring, shortly after
growth " begins. This cultivation will
