Tlio Klnmnth Project la the nam

l fiUmi lyiiiK chiefly in Klnmnth County, Oregon, bnt
nlao vmhrnciiiK part of Hhikivou nnd Modoo Coun
tii'H, California, a total area of 200,000 acres.
Tho Project cm braces the construction of a verf
Kreiit mileiiKo of ciumla, laterals and drainage canala
nml will Imvo iU principal sotirco in Upper Klamath
Luke. Clear Lako und Horacfly are reservoir sitea
ulieru Hood water will bo impounded and utilized for
irrigation of land included in the upper portion of
Work on tho main count was started in the Spring
of 100L! and the first unit of nine miles is now com
lilutml. About i:i,000 acres of land will bo irrigated
from the first unit, the laterals for which are being
comitructcd under the supervision of the engineer
liaviiiK charge of the Project. Hy far the largest
proportion of the laud under tho first unit is now la
NiiKi-brimh and must ho cleared and broken in time
for crops in the Spring of 1908- Work on the sec
ond mitt is being donu by tho Government and em
braceri nineteen in Urn of main canal and twenty-six
mili-H of laterals to furnish water to about 20,000
additional acres of land. Work on this unit will be
prosecuted as rapidly an possible.
Nearly onulmlf of the area to be irrigated la now
under water lo n depth of from onp to fifteen feet
and will be reclaimed by n Rystcm of drainage to
lower the level of tho rivers nnd lakes. A large pari
of the swamp land and practically nil of the valley
land in tlio Klamath llasin arc held in private own
crxliiji and some in very largo trncts which must be
sold in tracts of ICO acres or leu under the regula
tion governing the perfection of a water-right.
KLAMATH'S For its development and pro
aitEATEBT perity the Klamath Basin must havs
NEED people, and the right kind of people
at that. Its great need is InUlll
gent, practical farmers, who understand the meaning
of intensified and diversified farming; men who will
buy land, not for speculative purposes, but with the
idea of clearing off the sagebrush and making per
mnnent and comfortable homes. Such men axe bound
to succeed. There is room for thousands of them.
Developing Sugar beets have been grown ex-
Various perimcntully throughout the Klnm-
Industries nth. Valley. Tho percentage of sugar
is high, ns will be noted from the
following analysis made hy tho United States De
partment of Agriculture from beets grown near
mig.'ir in beets, per cent., '21.7; sugar in juice, per
rent., -1.1 ; coefficient of purity, 83.1.
Ilxpcricnco has demonstrated that excellent ns
pnrngtiH, anions and celery can be grown, the tulc
bull being very similar to those of the Sacramento
nml Sun .loaiiiiu Valleys of California, where such
vegetables nre so successfully cultivated. Through
out the world the reclaimed marshlands nre the best
suited for the highest development of dairy inter
ests. There is 110 question that this will become a sugar
beet producing section and that a number of facto
ries will be built and operated with the development
of tho industry.
All kinds of fruit adapted to the temperate zona
thrive here apples, peaches, pears, cherries, prunes,
plums, njiricots ami nectarines do well, and small
fruits bear abundantly nnd of excellent quality.
There aro n great many small orchards throughout
the basin that prove the adaptability of the region
to the profitable production of fruit. .
K. Ii. Smith, former president of tho Oregon State
Hoard of Horticulture, gives it as his opinion that
tho foothill lands aro specially adapted to apple
Cultivation of the potato lias passed boyond the
experimental stage, the sandy loam of tho uplands
producing them in great abundance.
Klamath County wheat, grown without irrigation,
took tho premium at the New Orleans Exposition.
The most important forage crop is alfalfa, the soil
being peculiarly adopted to its growth.

ing from about $15 to $35 for unimproved, and $20
to $50 per acre tor improved Innd. Land adjacent
to the principal towns commands hlffher prices. The
purchaser pays for the water right at a cost of about
$18 per nere to be paid for in ten equal annual in
stallments without interest. This amounts to less
than tho ordinary annual rental paid private ditch
eoinpnnics. Some of the irrigators of Klamath Val

alreudy pnid out to such companies for water $60 per
