The Valley of the lito Grand River, like the far famed delta of lb 'Kile, solves the problems facing the starving farmers of the East. , Here treat river fed by the snow capped mountains of Colorado. , wfeose supply is never exhausted, has spread out under the surfars of , Ihe entire vslle- and can be found at from four feet to ten feet below the surface of the ground, over It entire width. This furnishes the supply of water for Irrigation by pumping, at very low head mad therefore low cost to the numerous farmers who during the past year or two have demonstrated to their friends the wonderful uatlmlted supply of water and the great fertility of the soil. Walls few of ths older settlers and larger ranch holders hare taken advantage of irrigation by pumping, and have grown rich thereby. It is only durlag the last year or so that this unlimited source of assured crops has beom general knowledge, with the result that its first Indi cations are marked by the electrical pumping plants springing into prominence last summer, and the enlarging of some of ths older plants.

Alfalfa is probably tlic most extensive crop of the larger farmer and rancher today. This luxurious hay grows without rcsccding on the same ground for twenty or thirty years and un der electrical irrigation, five and even six cror per season are frequently harvested from the same fields during the six or seven haying months. The product of the fields, dcjendent in the past i!x'ti a varying and ar times inadequate water supply from ditches, has now developed into propositions as indicated by the following crop earnings: Alfalfa SI 50.00 to $ 300.00 per acre.

Here the most exacting can' find satisfaction in every up-to-date convenience and they are all within the nicuns of the most exacting or less pretentious home seeker. Electricity for lighting Is available at rates lower than what Is usually found in similar cities of the East, and the service is as near perfect as modern machinery and liberal investment of capital can make It. Electrical Power now drives every shop, factory and mill within the city and operates many pumping plants for domestic and Irrigating purposes for many miles beyond these limits. Oas is the fuel nsed exclusively for cooking In hundreds of homes, while li. extremely mild winters make it a favorite In many homes in preference to the expensive furnace or dirty coal stoves. , The city Is also proud of its street-car, telephone and water supply . systems, to say nothing of Its new sewer system, and well kept streets and drives.
