Men have made enough to puy for
the land on which the crop was
raised this year alone. Can you ask
for more? Do you want more?
Doesn’t it seem queer that every
town has a sot of citizens who net as
if hurt at every improvement planned
every bit of progress proposed, every
advance made in the town, although
every one of these things benefits
the pained ones?

Enriched by Their Farms.
One of the striking features of the
industrial year in Colorado has been
theadvance in farming lands through
out the state. It is safe to say that
in the irrigated sections every acre
ia being held today at double the
price it would have been sold for a
year ago. In the uon-irrigated
regions lands then deemed worthless
are valued at from five to twenty
dollars an acre aud there has been a
substantial movement to take up
government lands that from the set
tlement of the state have lacked
claimants, so it can be said that all
lands have advauced in value in
something near the same degree.
That closer tilling gives them
the enhanced value can I e readily
understood. Lands are worth what
can be made out of them on a profit
making scale compared with the in
terest earning power of money other
wise invested, and when the farmer
discovers that by planting sugar
beets he can net annually up to SSO
an acre he is no longer going to part
with his land at such prices as he
has heretofore considered it worth.
Eiwn at SIOO, $125 aud as high as
S2OO an acie, which last figure is be
ing offered for lands in sections par
ticularly favored in the matter of
’water, the farmer knows no reason
why he should sell his farm when
there is no other investment availa
ble that would return nearly so high
a percentage on the investment.
Because of the fuller realization of
this condition, farmers thoughout
the state have of late awakened to the
fact that they are well-to-do, even
rich men. It never dawned on them
in such striking form before. They
find that their farms are paying them
better than the store of the average
merchant pays him, more than tha
average professional man makes in a
yeai, and that their incomes from
them has more of stability, can be
depended upon with more certainty,
than those of the so-called middle
class of the country.
As a rule the farmers of Colorado
are men who some few years ago en
tered land from the government
under homestead, pre-emption or
timber claim acts. They have lived
on these lands a few years, made
their living, gradually improved
them out of the proceeds of the
crops, with better houses and barns,
reared their families amid healthy,
