This part of Colfax county in and
around Cimarron is destined to be
come one of . the great agricultural
sections in New Mexico. On the 21st
of June of the present year,' there was
a field of corn planted on the Charles
Springer ranch. The land was never
irrigated. On the 30th of September
the corn was harvested and found
to yield from 45 to 50 bushels to the
acre, a few acres producing 55 bush
els. There are but few localities west
of the Missouri river that . can sur
pass this record. What is said of
corn is equally true of sugar beets,
.for on this same ranch the present
season, without irrigation, there has
been produced sugar beets weighing
from six and one-half pounds up
wards. The tests of the beets raised
here have been found to yield from
22 to 25 per cent of saccharine mat
ter, while around Garden City, Kan
sas, where the farmers are engaged
very extensively in raising sugar
beets, the average of saccharine mat
ter is only 16 per cent. There is to
day no more inviting field for the
farmer to make money than in' this
region in cultivating the sugar beet
where land is plentiful and cheap.
It can be truly said that there is no
more alluring field today for the cap
italist to invest his money with the
prospect of handsome returns' than
to erect a sugar factory in or around
