M to do something that will be worthy

once was an Indian camp there are
rows of modern residences, tine roads

Is less crime In the Dear river val
ley than in any other section of the
(( untry of the same size and popu
lation. In two thirds of one man's
lifetime the Hear river valley has
b en transformed from a large bar-
! ren I50,noo acre of waste land into
one of the most fertile sections in the
west, producing immense quantities
j of every kind of vegetation known to
the land of the Golden Sunset.
The Hear river valley Is first and
foremost a beet producing country
and after that barley, wheat, oats,
hay, fruit and in fact everything good
1 tof man or beast is being obtained
from the Hear river valley lands.
However, before going into facts
and figures treating with the products
of this once "Wild and Woolly" sec
tion of the "Far West" for the bene
fit of those residing east of our slate
line let us first quote the following
tram a letter dated December lti,
l!i::, penned by one of the greatest
governors of any state of the union,
Hon. William Spry, chief executive of
'the state of I'tah:
Dear Sir: I am In receipt of your

The Beet Crop of
Bear River Valley
Facts and figures from the records
of the I'tah-Idaho Sunar company's
offices at Garland. I'tah. where is is
thalishcd one of the most modem and
adequate sugar factories erected, show
the magnitude of the beet industry in
the Hear river valley and these sta
tistics are confined to some of the
products from soil covered in this
article. The figures covering a period
o' ten years show an increase in ton
nage from 16,541 to 88,825 tons, or.
In dollars and cents from 180,000.00
to $440,()00.oii. Considering the fact
that but a small percentage of the
land has yet been cultivated, it will
be seen how great the beet industry
here will become.
It is quite generally conceded by
people who know, that the beet crop,

crops that can be produced in the
Hear river vulley. The Boil and clim
atic conditions existent here are pe
culiarly adapted to beet culture. It
is however, an established fact that
it is the surest crop that can lie pro
duced, which fact, coupled with the
knowledge that a good market of easy
access is assured at liberal prices,
makes it the premier crop of the
It would seem that there are com
paratively few people who sense the
magnitude of the beet Industry and
the value of the crop to the valley.
Some little Idea of its growth may be

obtained, however, when attention is
called that from an output of only
16,541 tons at a value of $80,000.oi
in the year I!n3, (that being the year
in which the Garland sugar factory
was i-rected) It has grown during a
period of only ten years to enormous
proportions. The tonnage of beets
produced during the season of 1913,
which lias just Olcied, was 88,838 tons
lor which was paid into the hands of
the pr sperms farmers of this valley
the handsome sum of $440,0(10.00.
From 5,894.25 acres of sugar beets
harvested in the fall of 1!M3 there
was produced 88,825.00 tons, thus
making a general average of 15. 07
tons per acre or a gross return ot

by singling out a few exceptionally
good tracts, the full significance of
these figures become obvious. Crop

more revenue derived from the beet
crop than any other two crops pro
duced in this valley.

It Is not generally understood, but
It is stated on good authority never
theless that there are less mortgages
on homes, farms and crops in the
Hear river valley than in any other
vulley of its size in the state of Utah.
The beet crop is entitled to a goodly .. -measure
of the credit for this condi
tion of affairs by reason of the large
sums of money that are distributed
annually to the farmers in payment
for beets grown and the general
flourishing conditions that attend the
beet sugar industry.

; parous beet growers of this valley:
