cover a number of acres in that vicin

place this farm above the point at
which the irrigation water wais to be
brought out. In selecting the land
1 therefore, a rather high piece of land
was selected, 'the land was cleared
of sa'gic brush and fenced by the
county commissioners of Washington
county, operations were commenced
in the way of dry farming, and the
fifth crop has just been harvested.
At our visit there the other day,
Iwc were somewhat astonished our
selves to find such excellent results.
The crops for this yoair have, in thi
main, been harvested, but the yicldj
arc not yet obtainable. However, it

acre. Laist year (1907) the plats were
in a most fa,vor?.blc condition, yield

We found, not only wheat success

a success-, though the fact that 'there
are so few people in that locality,
means, that there has not been much
development along these lines. This

The " Gunnison Creamery is now
completed) and ready for business.
Several test runs have been made thi.
week which proved satisfactory in
every respect. The plant has been
leased for two years to J. I. Larson
and Eph. Dastrup, both experienced
creamery men and thctc is no doubt
that they will receive the support of
the milk producers in this neighbor
hood. A' big time will be had at the cream
cry building next Tuesday, when the
creamery will be formally opened.

Seen Around the Valley.
We spent a piairt of several days
riding over the valley and talking notes
of the crop prospects. We found
most of the first crop of alfalfa cut
and in the stack, some of the second!
crop almost ready for cutting. Most
of the first crop was put up in fair
condition, though some few farmers
were unfortunate in having it get wet
by rain and it was thus damaged. In
several fields wc saw the bailers at
work getting it read, for market
Most of the fall wheat crop was look
ing fine and promises a good yield.
Some of the spring sown docs not
look so well, but the most of the crop
promises a very heavy yield. We no
ticed some very large barley fields in
the Elwood region, a.nd it all looks
fine, but there arc some of barley
fields west of Trcmonton that arc
rather below the average. What the
reason is wc did not find out. Theis
is a fair acreage of potatoes planted,
.but wc noticed many fields in which
the stand was small," as if they did
not omc up as 'hey should. But the
oats! the most wonderful crop in the
whole Valley. There arc thousands
of acres that will yield from eighty tj
a hundred' bushels an acre, and hun
dreds of acres that will make from
one hundred to one hundred mjid twen
ty bushels an acre. G. M. Winzclcr
and Matthew Baer, just west of Trc
monton, together have some five or
six hundred acres that will yield a
crop that will well repay them for
their labor and a good bonus besides
John Somirrer has a large acreage of
oats besides other crops, but he has
so many other propositions on hand
most of the time that they have not
received the attention necessary to
bring them up to their .best yield, al
though it looks as if he might have
from eighty to a hundred bushels an
acre on much of his land. On the
farm of Louis H. Gctz, near Point
Lookout, we noticed the most apples
in this part of the Valley. From pres
ent appeairances he will have a pretty
.fair crop. Wln'le everywhere, else in
this vicinity the frost destroyed all
i i.!.
the apples, Mr. Gctz va? favored by
inn having any frost of consequence M
and now has the promise of a full jH
crop, which will undoubtedly sell foi H
. good price this fall. There arc H
some fine crops of beets growing in M
spite of the dry spring weather that H
seemed to - prevent their .coming up. H
Especially is this true of the farms 01 jH
the cast of the Malad. K. H. Fnidcil, '-H
J. L Haws and others have a large H
acreage that look very very fine atrl H
promises a bountiful yield. Sor.ic H
three miles west of town Mir. J. M. H
Jensen, Jr., has planted an nipple or- H
chard of some nine or ten thousand H
tree;, nnd between the rows he has H
planted beets. He had a big gang of H
men thinning them last week, but H
they appear very small compared with H
tlvosc on the cast side of the Malad H
Wc arc not enough of a prophet t H
make any estimate of what the crop H
may be. MY. Jensen lias been making H
some very extensive improvements on H
'his ranch this summer. He has had H
his house and other buildings repaired H
and painted and done much to make H
his place look more homelike. He M
is to: very progressive citizen, and M
whether the work he is doing will M
ever pay him or not, his example will M
have a good effect in causing other M
to make their places more tidy and M
more like farmers' homes' ought 0 M
It's the aggressive, persistent effort M
that winsalways. The easy-going H
individual who is satisfied merely to H
"take what comes his way" is never M
going to be more than stepping dis- H
tance from the foot of the class. Ad- 9
