Forbes, Director and Chemist of Agricultural t Experiment Station , University of Arizona, January 15, W07. - Just west of Yuma, Arizona, in the alluvial flood-plain of tho Colorado, lies a little farm of 7-2 acres which on May 1, 1905, was virgin bottomland, covered with sattweed, arrow, brush and creosote bushes. The original purpose or the traotwas for planting selected varieties oflate palms impoiited by tlie U. SS. Department of Agriculture from the Old World. The Experiment. station, May 2, be gan preparing the ground, and on May 0 the worjc ot levelling, bordering and irrigating the tract and the planting of 152 palms', was completed. THK VIjAN OV WO.UK Recognizing, however, that a farmer with bis living to make meantime, cannot afford to wait lor an orchard to come into bearing, it was planned to plant crops for quick re turns between the tree-rows, thus putting the wont on a feasible basis from the small farm' er's point of view. In order to economize ground the irrigating borders were so placed as to coincide with the rows of palms, thus utilizing space otherwise usually wasted The tract was divided by the borders into lands, for the most part one-half an acre in .ize. Irrigating water from the Colorado Valley P. & I. Canal was obtained in the cus tomary manner, and K. L. Crane, himself a Yuma Valley farmer, undertook the care of what was nicknamed our play farm." In size, as well as in the intensive character of the work planned, this farm" is the op posite of the average holdings of this locality The prevailing crops of the region are alfalfa corn, bailey, and forages in general, compara tlvely little attention being given to vege tables and fruits. Withal, the cost of levelling land in this region is high, rarely falling be low twenty dollars an acre at current prices for labor and teams. Moreover, the cost, ex elusive of maintenance, of the Government irrigating system now under construction will be about S3.50 an acre annually for ten years- io meet these and other heavy ltms of expense in connection with the establish mentof a farm in this region, intensive crops of a more remunerative character than those now in vogue, are essential. It was partly therefore, as an object lesson bearing upon these financial aspects of the general situa tion, that this cultural work was planned RECLAMATION OF THE GltOUNJ. The soil of our tract, a warm, sandy loam well adapted to gardening operations, was levellen, ditched snd bordered at a contract price of 1(. at an acre, considerably less than the average for the locality, reckoning the labor of men and teams at current rates. In addition, barbed wire and posts for fencing coslSOU-lU: lumber for headgates cost 539.07 a drive well point and pipe, a pitcher-spout pump and a barrel. 6i!J.4o: a small lumber two-room hopse. Including Ave and one-half days carpenter hire, S152.75; and n brush-roof shelter for horses, about So.00. Only skilled labor employed in levelling, bordering and ditching the ground, and tor part construe turn of the house, is included in the above estimates, as the common tabor reouired or dinarily would be, and in tills caso was. fur nished by the larmer himsell- To bring this ground under cultivation and make it habitable for a small farmer and his family, as staled above, therefore required a cash outlay ol ahout Jh(HmX). in addition, in the average instance must he included team, wagon, plow, harrow, haying equip ment shovel nous and oilier small tools ckoi'.s and ;maikkts. The crops selected for the season of 1000 were Jiarly Kose potatoes. White- Hermuda onions. Koekyford cantaloupes, Dwarf Cham pion and Burpee's Quarter Century tomatoes, and aiiaiia, nesines a lew hills ot watermelons and sundry vegetables. The produce was marketed in Yuma with the exceptloii of tomatoes, which, for the largest part, were expressed to Tucson and Hishee. The following statements lor the various crops are on the basis of net casli ie- turns to the small farmer, who with an aver age family of live and a team of horses is as sumed to do the work required, as explained below. Items necessitating cash outlay, as seed, irrigating water, and crates are deducted from gross returns. Watery)sts an a'erage of 50 cents for irrigation per acre for the crops grown, i ne yicias in ceruun instances arc low, due to the unimproved condition of the soil, which, like desert soils in genial, was low in nitrogen and organic matter. Some small salty areas also affected yields locally. White iiennuda onions; .17 acres: Weed planted Sept. 27-Oct. .', 1905. Young onions transplanted, fco- 5-9. liJPd.

(Jne day's team work in preparing the land and about 32 days, men's though the work was not heavy and could have been largely performed by boys. The yield was low owing to the desert and unfe tilized character of the soil, onions requiring large amounts of organic matter in the soil to give good results. , Early Rose potatoes; .81 acres: Seed pota toes planted Feb. io-nj, iuuh. lleglnning to bloom April 13.

The sesbania used as green manur ing on the west half of the potato ground was given 17 irrigations. Hermuda grass, more over, nourished beneath the sesbania to such an extent as subsequently to require 23 days labor for cleaning up the .toacres so fertilized. Although the larger part of the crop came from the sesbania fertilized portion of the po tatoes, this method of enriching the soil proved very costly, 27 days mans time and 3 days team-work being required to put the ses bania under and afterwards get rid of tho Bermuda grass. Nevertheless, the labor eng tailed could easily have been managed by a careful farmer, as the Bermuda digging was done in January when other work was not urgent. Tomatoes.

Until the last of June this crop required but little labor. During the shipping season, however, four persons were employed on about half time in picking, packing and snip ing the crop.

There were em ployed on the crop 31 daysmen's time: 8 davs women and boys; and 2 days team, not other wise inciuaeu. Tho crop was fertilized with barnvard man ure in about three-fourths of the hills, and, as stated above, thestand was poor. The results of tills acreire therefore conservative.

During the sec ond season, covered by this Timely Hint, there were seven cuttings with a total of about 20 tons of hay. The only cash outlay wiis 22.41 for irrigating water. The labor re quired was, manjs time, 14 days and team nine days, which is rather high laborTequire ment for this alfalfa on account of tlie small size of the field under consideration, and lim ited use of machinery. This crop at 55 00 to 510.00 a ton, loose, which has been the price this season, represents a casli return of not less than 8120.00 for the crop; but this hay was used to feed the team employed on the plnoe, proving to be more than sufficient for that purpose, since a stack of about three tons re mains at the end of the season. The manure from this source, being free from Bermuda grass seed, was especially valuable for fertil izing a part of the crops grown.

The news of the nomination of R. H. Cameron for delegate , to congress by the republicans at Phoenix, was received here with great surprise us well as univer sal approval by democrats and republicans alike. There is no question .in the minds of the northern people buthe willmrry northern Arizona by the largest majority ever given a republican candidate. This is a republican year and with a candidate like Cameron who never quits a fight until the last vote is cast, some of our southern neighbors may be surprised at what a real live hustler may accomplish. Camer on is a poor man and has come up from the ranks by sheer pluck, energy and ability. There is little need of detailing his many sterling qualities to the people of the north, for he knows them all personally, and before the campaign is over, he will be one of the best known men in south ern Arizona as well. His vote in the north will be practically unanimous, and an "unanimous Cameron club" has been organ ized to see that no odd ones escape Coconino Sun. ALHOST A BLANK RECORD Can a man learn of the wants of his constituents by spending the vacation; months of congress among boon companions of his youth in a distant state instead of circulating among his constit uents and learning of their needs? asks the Prescott Journal-Miner. In the twenty years of Marcus Aurelius Smith's residence in "Washington and Kentucky what public mone3's have been appro priated for public buildings out side of Phoenix, which is not yet completed? Has Bisbee public building, or Globe, or Tucson, Prescott or Yuma? Has. any attempt been made by the: etymological successor of the really great Marcus Aurelius to secure appropriations? Up to date over 225,000 has been se cured for public buildings inour neighboring territory of New Mexico for postoffice buildings through the direct efforts of the republican delegate from that territory and the democratic del egates as well, when they have been in office. The money has been secured by energetic action by live delegates, men devoted to the interests of their districts and who have not spent their congressional vacations among boon companions in some far away state. f The r6cords will show that even the two nominal appropri ations for Phoenix and Nogales were secured through the efforts of the corporate and civic bodies of those sections and that in real ity if Marcus Aurelius Smith alone had been depended upon, the appropriations would have been minus quantities unto this day. The Roosevelt Policies. (From Sherman's Speech of Ac ceptance.) Our platform, as it should Hdo, pledges adherence to the policies of President Roosevelt; promises to continue the work inaugurated during his administration, to in sure to persons and property all property every proper safeguard, and all necessary strengthening of administrative methods will be provided to fur nish efficient inspection and su pervision, and prompt righting of every injustice, discrimination r and wrong.
