Review of Past Conditions in Cache Co.
Mooseism Touched up. Town Talk '
And Local Items.
Wo will remember the political
campaign ot thirteen years ago, when
the flrst Kepubllcans were sent from J
Cacho to the legislature and elected
two county commissioners. What
did It? Tho election of McKlnley in
1896, the wheat crops of 1897, 189S,
and 1803 sold for 75, 80, 00, and 05
cents per bushel and sold for cash
whllo tho crops of 1893, 1894 and 1895
sold for 33, 35, 40, and 45 cents per
bushel and tho merchants had to
trade much ot it to wholesale mer
chants for merchandise, nnd the far
mer In turn hpd to take merchandise
or due bills for hie wheat. Then It
was that Republicans said If you elect
us, David Eccles promises to build a
sugar factory in Logan. Tho Idea
was hooted, and branded political
mockery by tho opposition, but the
people believed It, tho county went
Republican for the first time, and
what has been tho result? Not only
sugar fartory, smoke stacks at Lo
gan, but more, at Lewlston. Conden
ser smoke stacks at Richmond, Smith
Held, Franklin, Logan, Hyrum and
IWellsvllle., and they aro smoke stacks
that count, not snioko stacks emit
ting' hot air only, Cash on tho spot
for every article tho farm produces,
at a good price. Water works and
electric lights in nearly every city or
prominence In Cacho County. Paved
sidewalks, cement culverts and grav
elled highways. Pianos, plumes, silk
drebses, plush coats, hobble, skirts,
silk hose and gauzp underwear tn ev
ery hamlet in tho land, with more
jl automobiles coming our way over
If day. To bo sure all tlild Id not A re-
suit of Republicans only, but' tho
major part of It is a result of wise
Republican legislation. Fellow Re
publicans and dear citizens, let us
weigh carefully tho exact situation
before wo conclude to vote for a
change, Just for the sake of a change
Wo may regret It.
It does not take a wise man to tell
you or convince you that you aro be
ing wronged by the other fellow, but
it takes wise men, men of nerve to
build smoko stacks, Wy there are
dozens of men In thq county poor
Drlggs, Idaho, Oct. 1. The four
hour delayed special excursion train
arrived at 5 p. m. yesterday' and was
received by thousands of valley resi
dents, brass bands and shouting citi
zens. Notwithstanding tho tlresomo
delay the enthusiasm was not damp

headed by President Don C. Drlggs,
city officials, and a dozen or more at
tractive floats representing the de
velopment, Industrially, of tho Teton
valley. Tho most striking feature was
three Immonso logs drawn by two
yoke of sturdy oxen. Tho people
B shouted themselves hoarso over tho
features of tho parade, and dispersed
to tho various attractions baseball,

Aftt-i tlify Imd bi-eii held In Jail without ball for several mouths tln trial of Joseph .1. Eltor and Arthur Ulo
vanltll. the 1 V. V. lenders, was set for Monday, Sept. 30, nt Salem. Muss. Tlioy were Indicted as being accessa

The editor ot ono of the largest ag
ricultural papersln America was re
cently asked the question as to how
high priced land should become to
make it 'too valuable to be used tor
pasture grasses. He replied In effect
that land never does become too val
uable for forage crops; land never
becomes so high priced thnt It can
not profitably be used for pasture. Tho
argument was made that unless some
form ot livestock husbandry be asso
ciated with ovory phase of agricul
ture It could not be mado permanent.
Tho history ot agriculture In the va
rious countries of tho world Is re
pleto with Illustrations of this fact.
Denmark stands out as a uotnble
example In this matter. Not many
years ago tho agriculture ot that na
tion was at a very low ebb; their ef
forts wero confined largely to wheat
growing, their soils were becoming
depleted of their fertility, nnd tho
outlook was Indeed discouraging. Tho
government authorities becamo con
cerned and after consideration, estab
lished dairy schools throughout tho
country nnd offered special Induce
ments to farmers to engage In tho
dairy business; as a result tho yields
of farm crops havo been troubled In
many Instances. Denmark's farming
lands havo greatly enhanced In val
ue and nro becoming moro fertile
year by year. Among all tho nations
of the world todny, Denmark Is tho
peer ot any, as far as agrlculturo Is
Tho history ot tho llttlo Island of
Jersey is Instructive along this lino.
This Island Is only oleven miles long
and four miles wide, yet thoy main
tain a rural population of 00,000 peo
ple. This Is mado possible simply
because of the fnot that dairying oc
cupies tho attention of the peoplo of
that Island.
In this country the fnmo of tho El
gin district has gono abroad In the
land. Elgin prlceo nro quoted ovory
where throughout this country and
the Elgin district Is pointed out as
the ideal dairy section of the United
States. -Thoao ot you who have been
tn that section knov that In order to
maintain a dairy cow for a pasture
season, It is necessary to havo from
two to three acres of ground. Their
hay costs them from $18 to $25 per
ton and their grain costs from $25
to $30 per ton, yet tho price received
for butter fat In the Elgin district
does not on the average equal the
price received for butter fat through
out tho Irrigated sections of tho west.
It Is n known and demonstrated
fact that good Irrigated pasture land
will maintain from two to three cows
through nn entire season; alfalfa hay
one of tho most palatable ot forage
crops, can bo raised at a profit and
sold for from $8 to $12 per ton.
Grain In tho Irrigated section Is usu
ally available nt from $20 to $25 per
ton; with this comparison lu mind It
seems to mo that dairying should be
a particularly prolltnblo business and
that It Is so has already been demon
strated In many sections.
It Is unlversnlly conceded that the
success and permanency ot any sys
tem of ngrlculturo rests upon tho
maintenance nnd increase ot tho ele
ments in tho soil that aro concerned
In the feeding ot plants. Tho ele
ments with which tho farmer Is most
concerned nro nitrogen, phosphorous
nnd potassium.
In a ton of alfalfa hay tho nitro
gen, potash and phosphoric acid are
worth $7.12 If tho alfalfa Is cut whon
tho plants aro In full bloom. Theao
elements sold on tho market, nt pre
vailing prices, would amount to thnt
figure, with nitrogen nt 15 to 18 conts
per pound; potash, fifteen cents a
pound; nnd phosphoric acid, G cents.
Using tho npplo crop as an illus
tration, wo find that six hundred bu
shels of npplos, a fair yield from nn
aero .contain 47 pounds ot nitrogen,
$7.05; five pounds of phosphorous, CO
conts; and G7 pounds ot potassium,
$3.42, and those at tho current mar
ket prico ot theso elements would
make the prlco of tho fertilizers
$11.07. So wo ought to add to tho
cost ot producing n crop ot apples
tho cost ot tho fertility found In tho
crop of apples,
Now take fifty buahols of wheat to
tho aero. We find In the fifty buBh-
els of wheat, U pounds ot nitrogen,
$10.65; 12 pounds ot phosphorous,
$1.44; 13 pounds of potassium, 78
cents; and theso elements, nt tho
market price, would mako theso fifty
bushels of wheat cost you, in plant
food that was taken out, a total of
Then wo should tako Into account
the value ot the straw $6.33 in an av
erage crop, and that In tho plant
food that tho farmer often burns.
I am a friend of tho sugar beet in
dustry and reallzo that It succeeds
nowhere else so well as In tho Irri
gated region but wo must not de
lude ourselves with tho notion that
wo can grow sugar beets without ex
hausting thu fertility of tho farm. 1
know somo farmers who belloved that
and thoy have been growing mignt
beets after sugar beets, until now
thoy nro in tho position ot tho man
who has a deposit In tho bank, who
Issues checks until tho funds nro ex
hausted nnd finally the rnsh'er re
turns tho check with tho statement,
"no funds on deposit. " Old Mother
Naturo does her work In exnetly tho
same. way. In tho farmers bank the
funds or deposit tiro nitrogen, potash,
and phosphoric acid. Every time the
farmer plants a crop he Issues a
check, and Mother Naturo will hon
or theso checks until tho fortuity of
tho soil is exhausted. When our
friend tho sugar beet grower plants
a crop of beets they mature, provid
ed ho has been ordinarily successful,
ho should secure- a yield ot twent)
tons per aero; tho twenty tons ot
beets represents n loss to the soil
of 100 pounds of nitrogen, $15.00 1
pounds of phosphoric ncld, $2.16 151
pounds of potash, $9.42. Theso ele
monts nro taken out of tho soil, and
at prevailing prices tho total cost o!
the crop ot sugar beets to tho sol
is $20.58; and this Is ono ot tho thing!
wo farmers do not tako Into account
I have, seen farmers estimating th
cost of plowing tho ground, harrow
lng and seeding It, the cost ot irrt
gating, thinning, topping and haullnf
to the factory, but thoy never tak
into account this other factor o
