In tlie middle of the Colorado desert,
a little to tlie north of the Mexican

the sea, lies a field of crystallized salt

presenting a surface as white as snow

Here daily throughout the year men
are at work overturning the great de

getting it into great piles preliminary
to putting it through tho relining proc

harvest are great four wheeled imple

by two men. The salt crust is thrown
up in parallel ridges then laborers
with hoes work it to and fro in the
water, washing out the dirt prelim
inary to stacking it in mounds to be
taken to the mill.
Salt springs in adjacent foothills are
constantly contributing to the deposit,
and so heavily laden are they with al
most pure salt that the plow has hardly
passed on before a new crust has
formed in the furrow left. This fact
renders it unnecessary to operate more
than a small portion of the vast de
As may be supposed, work in these
fields is performed under the most try

these the Indians are by far the better
adapted to the work, tlie .Japanese per

The Banner County of the State of North Dakota
for Diversified Farming and Stock Raising.
RANSOM COUNTY"is situated in southeastern North Dakota.. The
general lay of the country is level to rolling. The soil is a heavy black
loam, three or four feet deep, underlaid with a clay subsoil. Rainfall
averages from 20 to 22 inches per annum. Ransom county will be the
future dairying and diversified farming county of North Dakota, and is
now being rapidly taken up by a prosperous class of farmers from
southern Minnesota, Iowa. Illinois, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
These people have made a success of farming in their different localities
and are recognizing the future of Ransom county. Besides, the fann
ers that are selling lands in these old localities all the way from $50 to
$1.50 per acre recollect that from ten to fifteen years ago their land was
elling from $15 to $30 per acre, and this is to be repeated in Ransom
county. Ransom county this year harvested one of the finest crops of
corn, wheat, oats, barley and flax in its history. Hundreds of tbe best
farmers of Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and eastern South
Dakota are selling their high priced land and are buying farms in Ran
som county, where the soil is as rich and the climate as good as in their
former homes. A visit of inspection invariably convinces the land
seeker that Ransom county offers greater inducements for profitable
farming and dairying than any other section in the northwest. Write
us for maps or any information you want concerning Ransom county
