In Logan and Lewlston Districts
There Will Be Produced Big
ger Crops Than Last
The field superintendent of the Lo
gan sugar factory has Just completed
his crop report for tho Logan factory
beet glowing territory which shows
tho crop to be one of the most flour
ishing In tho history of the Industry
1n this valley" at this time of the sea
son. If tho weather conditions con
tinue favorable, there Is no question
but tho 1913 beet crop will bo record
ed the lnjrgest In the history of tho
valley. In tho Logan factory territory
there Is a total of CC50 acres plant
ed to beets Ml of which are In good
condition. In the Lewlston factory
boet growing district there are 4 273
acres planted and the crop on a wholo
compares favorably with that of the
Logan district. There Is according
to the above figures, a total acreage
of beets In the valley of 10,823 acres.
Taking tho crop throughout the en
tiro valley, tho estlmato at the pro
sent tlmo as to tonnago is placed at' 12
tons per acre, Th's will make !i crop
to be harvested of about 120 000 to
130,000 tons :s ngatnst 100 000 tons
last season. Last season the crap
was cut short on account of a heavy
hall storm about this season of t c
year. If no unforeseen calamity
strikes the beets, the growers f.g well
as the factory people, have every
cause to rejoice over the outlook for
n bumper crop In Cficho vnlley this
Cache Fruit Growers Could Place
Order For 50 Carloads. $1.20
Now Offered For Fall
According to reports from olllcers
of tho Cncho Fruit Growers assucln
tlon, the present outlook Is exception
ally bright for a good market for ap
ples this season. Already $1.20 has
been offered for fall delivery or Jon
athans. An order for fifty carloads
of early apples could bo filled right
now if thoy wero to bo had, and id
good prlco could bo received, says
Has Rasmusscn, manager of the as
sociation. Tho leading apple growers
In Cacho valley have completed a
systematic thinning of tho crop this
season which Is in excellent shtipo.
Although tho trees are not bearing
so heavy as last year, tho crop In tho
valley will bo fully as largo because
thoro are a large nummber of young
trees coming Into boalrlng this sea
son. Tho varieties nro principally
Jonathan, Ganos and Hen Davis, tho
latter two varieties being about 40
per cent of the crop and alliJut tin

this valloy Is becoming famous for
tholr production. Our best Jonathans

Indications aro that they will firing
a much bettor prlco this year. Ono
reason for this Is tho fact that tho
fruit has been carefully sprn&'ed by
tho leading growers and as a result
It Is practically clean. It Is thought
that no less thnn ono hundred arid
fifty car loads of apples will bo pro
duced in this valley this soason it

In view of tho fact that since tho re

will render It possible for Logan City
to lmprov,o her water system during

that we aro confined to ono metnod
of raising tho necessary funds, to wit,
borrowing money, and our borrowing
capacity being limited, largely on ac

two years, or If that does not meet
tho approval of the Hoard I lespect

into such fund all recolpts from the

Further that wo either abandon tho
