Winning of the West Problem.
Every winter on the agricultural
possibilities of the western conti
nent, every recent experiment sta
tion bulletin, every observant
traveler, agrees that the greatest
development of agriculture in the
next half century must be in what
is known as the semi-arid region
of America, which includes parts
of all the states west of the Mis
souri river and of Canada and
Here is to be the real winning of
the West; and it will not be with
gun and knife, nor will it be with
boots and spurs, but it will be
with such intelligent cultivation of
the soil that the mystery of the so
called great plains will disappear
forever beneath fields of waiving
grain. It is worth while again call
ing attention to the fact that the
achievements of the farmers of this
region have far surpassed the dream
of the pioneers. Farming is a reality
in the semi-arid region. From a hun
dred different directions comes un
disputed testimony that practical
men are tilling the soil with good
The work started a dozen years
ago by H.W.Campbell of Lincoln,
Neb., whose experiments first drew
the attention of the world to the
possibilities of this region, has
been faithfully carried on by him
and others who have learned of
him, until today it is not question
whether there is anything in scien
tific soil culture, but how much
and just where and how can soil
culture methods be applied. Mr.
Campbell has directed work on
many model farms in the past and
his operations this year are said to
be more extensive than ever before
and in recent years the states have
taken up similar investigations and
everywhere business associations
arc taking the liveliest interest in
what is being done.
The successes of the past but in
dicate in a small way what is in
store for the future of this region.
Scientific soil culture has opened
the door for a new era of expansion
which is to result in the making of
homes for millions of farmers and
orchardists and dairymen on land
hitherto listed as almost worthless.
The search for gold is directed in
a new channel and the search will
not be in vain.
Someday when the story of this
new development in the winning of
the West is written the world will
be an azed at results actually
achieved .
Wright, Sherwood & Co., have
sold considerable real estate this
week, among the list is the south
half of the Barnes addition, to L.
B. Gamble, of Amarillo for a con
sideration of 5,000.00; the A. A.
Blankenship corner where the
livery stable stands, for 7,000.00,
and the Aired property, near the
Moore lumber yard, for S950.00.
M. Rudulph, county superintend
ent of schools, spent most of las
week in the north end of the coun
ty around Nara Visa and Logan,
assisting the people in arranging
their school matters. Supt. Ru
dulph informs us that out of the
thirty-three school districts in Quay
county thirty-one of them have as
sessed not less than five mill levies
and that the other two have assessed
a three mill levy. This looks good
for the school interests of Quay
for the next year.
Many newspaper men throughout
Kansas have raised the price of
their weekly publications from 1
to 1. 50 per year on account of
the increase in price of white pa
per, says the Beloit, Kansas, Ga
zette. Many of the big daily pa
pers have also raised the price, the
last being W. R. Hearst's Sunday
publications. He has raised the
price from five to seven cents pur
copy. As a rule the newspaper
men are the biggest lools on earth,
anyway. When dry goods, gro
ceries, lumber, coal or any other
article raises in price on the whole
sale market the home dealer shoots
up the price in accordance and no
one blames him. For more than
two years paper of all kinds has
advanced in price from ten to
forty per cent and still we are
charging the same price for print
ing as we did two years ago. News
paper men die poor because they
like to be good fellows.
