You can simply say that we are going a right ahead with every part of the it business, inoluding the grading for the I sidetrack leading to the factory site. a 'The work on this grade is indicative of what is being done in every feature of the enterprise--he work is being pushed aJlong all lines. "I had' not been in Colorado for sev eral months prior to this visit, but ev en in that short time there has been a 'wonderful advance in farming lands in the vicinity of Fort Collins and other towns where beet sugar faeCtor ies are located. Within the past six 'week's 10 or more farms have been sold in the vicinity of Fort Collins at prices ranging from $150 to $300 per lacre. Before the beet sugar factory was located there every bit of thiis land could have been purchased at $35 per acre and less.
