HH southeastern Idaho and northern and
HB central Utah many important and slg-
BB nlflcant developments have taken
BB place.
BB The Hear Klver valley constitutes
B one of the richest and moHt fertile sec-
BB tions of the Inter-monntain region and
BB development condltionH that obtain
BB elsewhere seem likely to hold good In
m this district, i. e., reliable electric
BB power at reasonable cost for all pur-
B poses must be made available at the
BB earliest possible moment, if full ad
BB vantage is to be taken of the multi-
BH plicity of opportunities which abound
Bfl on every hand in this vicinity.
BB Electricity makes possible for every
community a very large number of
civic improvements which otherwise
could not be enjoyed. Adequate street
1 lighting, shop window illumination,
electric signs and domestic lighting
Com vigorous factors in Increasing
the attractiveness of towns and rural
districts, while merchants, manufac
trers. professional men and farmers
invariably avail themselves of electric
service wherever power can be sup
plied them.
We expect to make electricity one
of the essential elements in the fu
ture development of Hear Klver valley.
Interviews with Some Prom-
inent Men of this District
H A representative of the Globe call-
BB ed upon Mr. Fred .1. Kelsel, prcsi-
BB dent of the Fred J. Kelsel Company,
BB one of the largest wholesale jobbing
Bfl houses of the Middle West, to ascer-
BJ tain from Mr. Kelsel his opinion of
M the Hear River Valley.
B "I have been familiar with the
Bfl Bear River Valley for more than 4o
Bfl years and was one of the founder!
Bfl and early inhabitants of Corinne. at
HB the base of your splendid valley.
Bfl was his respense to our inquiry.
Bfl Continuing he said, "The climatic
HB conditions are unexcelled, also the
HB soil and variety of products and
HHj there 1b a ready market right at
H your door. The developments in the
Hflj Bear River Valley are especially in-
HH terestlug to me because of the great,
HH steady growth to be seen In every
B section of the Valley. Hut the pro
HH Kress and developments are vet in
HH Infancy and there is every reason
HH to believe that the Hear River Val-
HH ley will become the greatest agricul-
HH tural and fruit center.
HH "Regarding the increase in busi-
BB nesfl," said Mr. Kelxel, "during the
HH past few years, it gives me great
D pleasure to state that we estimate
HB the increase to be about 18 per cent
M annually and I am convinced that it
H will increase at that ratio as yourl
valley develops and becomes more
densely settled."
When it is remembered that The
Fred j. Kelsel Company has been
for many years feeling the pulse ot
commercialism in the Hear Klver
valley the statements of Mr. Kelsel
should he taken as authoritative.
A. It. Cupeucr of (iurtand, when
asked about his experiences and con
ditions as seen by him during his
residence in the Hear River valley
volunteered the following state
ment: "Much has been said and written
of this section of the country and
never yet have I seen or heard any
thing that would be detrimental to
anyone seeking a desirable location
where the could make a comfort
able home and reap good harvests as
the result of their toil.
"Twenty-two years ago I settled in
this valley, first taking up home
stead land in 1X91. During the first
winter here no one came past my
home and my nearest neighbor, A
H. Glcason, lived several miles from
me. Now I am surrounded on all
sides by families residing in modern
homes and am only 400 yards from
Garland, a live, progressive town in
which there are approximately SO
business houses all apparently doing
a fine business and many of them
able to dispense with credit trade.
Not long ago the nearest traditig
point from my residence was Hear
Itiver City, a distance of ten miles
where two stores took care of the
needs of the people for many miles
from here.
"I have devoted much of my life
in this valley to agricultural and
horticultural work, also cattle rais
ing and cattle feeding, and, of
course, as bishop of the Garland
ward, have come in contact with al
most all phases of life in this valley
"Fruit raising can be very success
fully carried on in tills valley. The
climatic conditions and other lavor
able natural advantages the Hear
Itiver valley takes off Its hat to no
other section of the United States.
"This is not particularly a good
country for raising cattle on account
of lack of range and It would have
I to be done from the farm but cattle
feeding can be carried on here as
there are as good facilities to be
found here as anywhere 1 know of
in the world to finish the cattle.
There are approximately 3,1)0(1 head
of cattle being fed at Garland alone
every year and In addition there are
not less than 2r,(iuu head of sheep
also fed at that point
"The fertility of the soil In this
valley makes it possible to produce

finest apples grown in the wst are
obtained from the trees in tin Hear
Itiver valley. The banana apple is
known all over the Kast and are
highly prized. The Jonathan and
Hen Davis apples shipped from here
are beautiful specimens of the pos
sibilities ill this valley. There are
large areas of land that can be used
for orchards and till we need are
live wires, men of industriojs habits
who will come in and UBe the oppor
tunities that are presented. Then
peaches can be grown here in great
abundance, also plums, cherries and
all kinds of berries With Its soil,
feed as cheaply here as anywhere
i else and alfalfa, hay and grain are
produced exceptionally well and in
large quantities. I'ulp is procured
reasonably from the local sugar
plant and when used in connection
with the other food stuffs already
mentioned make admirable feed for
producing a very high-grade beef, he
Ing second only to corn fed stock
The finished beef f.'oin this point
brings the highest prices and com
mauds one-half cents per pound
more than hay fed beef.
"There. 1b a big field here for
dairying and anyone coining Into
this section for that purpose can
make no mistake if they understand
how to pioceed. Nature has provid
ed them with every requisite to use
in this line and there is no place
otters a better opportunity than this
section of the Hear Rf.er valley for
a large dairy.
"There are many other opportun
ities here and I speak now with spe
cial reference to hog raising. tru k
gardening, etc., none of these fea
tures being carried on yet to any
great extent but that which lias been
accomplished thus far lias proven
vi ry profitable to those engaged in
the work. The market at Salt Lake
and Ogden cannot be surpassed from
our standpoint and the demand at
those points will be greater than the
supply from th.s locality for many
years unless every inch of soil is
"Fertile '.and! We have the best
that can be purchased right here In
this valley and one of the best water
systems in the entire West with a
sufficient supply of water to Irrigate
all the land in the valley mid some

further consider that we have never
experienced a dearth of water in tills
region since the water systems have
been operating here you will under

"In the Hear River valley there
has been produced US bushels of
oats to the acre; barley and wheat
(i." bushels per acre. Potatoes will
yield from 400 to 100 bushels per
acre, and sugar beets as high as 40
tons per acre have been produced
in this valley. And with all this we
must remember that the Hear River
valley Is yet in its early Infancy."
F. Allan B, Roche, who resides in
the western part of the Hear River
valley has sent us a brief article
which our readers will find intensely
Interesting and is aB follows:
