Nor is this State ever effected withi the severe drouths common to other sec tions of the country. With large and deep water courses traversing every portion of the State, artilicial Irrigation is never resorted to, except in case of rice. The clouds furnish in due season all the water needed to makethe crops. B While we cannot grow wheat profitan bly or obtain as large a yield of corn as the West does, our lands produce crops that will exceed to the acre, in money value, the production of any portion of " the United States. c a These values are to the acre : For s cotton, $30; rice $40, and sugar $120. e Fruit crops yield large amounts. It is not uncommon for an acre of strawber- Sale ries to give $500, while $500 to the acre is not up to the average for a goot e- orange orchard. it There is an abunidance of land to be Le had cheap and ou easy terms; and iLA of good men without money can rent farms and obtain advances of teams, lingds supplies and money on the faith of a clearin harvest that will certainly repay the tenelne advances.
