Phenomenal crops of first grade fall wheat, oats, vegetables and fruit, including apples, peaches, pears ana grapes all do well on this irrigated land. Within the last few years honey raising nas become one of the most important industries of Prowers county. The waving fields of alfalfa furnish food for countless bees, and tne honey they produce is of a delicious flavor and more highly —teemed than the clover honey of our eastern stat—. Several apiarists in the vicinity report yields of from no to 140 pounds of honey from each stand of bees. With each farm is sold a water right—that is, enough water to irrigate the land for any crop. The main ditches are run ■from the reservoirs, and from these the farmer runs furrows across his land. He taps the main ditch and lets the water run until the ground is soaked. Once for some crops, twice for others. It is claimed that the advantag— of farming by irrigation are manifold. In the first place the farmer does not have to depend on shifting showers for moisture, but takes the shovel and turns on the water. He is absolutely independent of rainfall, and is able to harv—t his crop without loss or damage by excessive wet weather which han- Kns so frequently in our —stern stat—, to say noth of the damage to growing crops —used by the same agency. Then farming by irrigation insur— a crop evenryear, besides the yiela is greatly in creased. Tne soil of the bottom land is of an allu vial nature, and its marvelous fertility when properly irrigated brings forth bounteous yields of many kinds of crops. The upland is a dark loam, remarkable for its depth. Ifc is rich in phosphates which are essen tial to plant growth, and being refreshed annually by the rich silt in the irrigated water, it is believed, will f;row enormous crops for hundreds of years without ertilizers. The future of this section of Colorado, from an agricultural point of view, impressed us very favorably. What They Say Belle/onte (Pa.) Dem. Watchman. The altitude at Lamar is Only 3,592 feet, the low—t in Colorado, consequently it is an excellent fruit-growing section. The sandy southern slopes, warmed by almoet continued sunshine and watered when dry, are unsurpassed for orchards, and the fruit is enough to make any Centre county farmer lose faith in my integrity were I to tell about ita slxe and lusclousne—, so I won't do 1L An alfalfa country is a great bee-raising oonntry, consequently Prowers county has enough hooey makers to keep most of the west sweet. Sugar beets grow prollfically on the soil, as high as thirty-six tons per acre having been grown. I am not trying to deceive you in any way about the country about Lamar, nor am I telling this story from railroad or real estate booming literature. It has been a matter of personal obser vation with me. Having been interested in irri gation before I reached Colorado, I naturally looked into the r—ults and practicability of it as earefully as possible in the snort time there was at my disposal, and it oertalnly seems to me that with 340 sunshiny days In a year, a soil thirty feet deep, that requires no fertilizer and water ever at hand so long as the Arkansas river flows, that there can he no more favorable conditions for agriculture anywhere than right in Prowers county. One of the noticeable things is that the farms are all small. There are cone of those great ranch— so large that the children have to start in the morning on poniefl, taking their dinner with them, to get the cows home for the evening milk ing. Yerv few of the farms run more than 160 acres, and most of them are smaller. The ground is so productive that a farmer finds all he can do in farming a few acr— well. The consequence is that the horn— in the oountry district are close to- Sther, there is social intercourse among them and ey have the advantage of good church— and schools. What They Say Fairfield (la.) Ledger. The Arkansas Valley of Colorado stretch— from Canon City to the Kansas state line, a dis tance of nearly 200 miles. It was and is a desert, but a desert which can he transformed into the most fertile field by the touch of water. Not only that, hut it will produce almost any of the cereals, vegeta*bl— or fruits common to the latitude in the most prolific abundance, with the great—t cer tainty and of the most uniform quality. Alfalfa is the great staple crop on these irri gated lands, because it seems to yield greater profit, hut wheat, corn, oats and other cereals are readily grown and yLld abundantly. Apples, peach—, plums, pears, berries of all kinds, melons, vegeta bles of every variety thrive and give rich returns. A wonderful display of the fruit of this soil was made at the railway station for the entertainment of the visitors, and their visits to farms, orchards and vineyards ia the vicinity of Lamar sufficed to prove the truth of the statements made concerning thesurprislng growth and enormous productiveness. The climate of the Arkansas is mild and very equable. It has its d ysof heat and cold, but is not subject to the great extremes of temperature which mark other sections flt'the oountry. It is said tint there a> e n'»t thirty Bays in the year when farm work cannot be done, and it is very rarely that outdoor labors are wholly suspended because of the weather. Lands are comparatively cheap at this time, cheaper than they will be in a few years, when tbeir value is better known and more appreciated. There are many lowa people in Prowers cohnty,«f which Lamar is the capital. In fact, we w-re told that h »lf the population was from Hawkeye stock. Th..t of lt«elf would make it a good country in which to live, for one could get along with the s’n'le hi—sing of good society. It is a new country, but it certainly has its advan tag—, and the lowa farmer who is seeking a change of location will not waste time if he in vest l gat— carefully the Arkansas Valley end ita poaslhiltU—. Prowers County Orchard. What They Say Quincy (Mass.) Patriot. We never tasted sweeter cantaloupes in our lives; no sugar is needed. We cannot account for their rich, sweet taste except the sandy soil and the bright, warm and sunny days. They have at La mar, no cloudy or rainy weather, but every day is bright and clear. And, as it does not rain, the people are obliged to raise their crops by irriga tion; but better fruit cannot be found. Irrigation in practice is the supplying of mois ture to land where rain is deficient. The water is directed to and over the land from a main canal through subsidiary ditches or laterals by the culti vator, who, after a short experience, can so com pletely control it that moisture required by the germinating seed or plant will be supplied when and in the exact quantity needed. It is a rainfall under human control. It is a shower without clouds. To farmers whose crops have been rotted by excessive rainfall, or burned up by drouth, it is unnecessary to dwell upon the advantages to be derived from a system whereby the supply of mois ture to his crop is in his own control. Robinson (III) Constitution. Some one has spoken of irrigation as the "wed ding of the sunshine and the rain.” The uninitiat ed often Imagine that the art of supplying water to cultivated land is a complicated process; whereas irrigation in fact is as simple as child’s play. It is in fact what the householder does when he waters his plat of grass; what his good wife does when she sprinkles her dooryard pansies and geran iums. The Colorado farmer would no more leave the watering of his crop to the oaprice of the clouds than the-housewife will defer her washday until she can catch rain water in the tubs. The rivers of Colorado rush down from the mountains and as they emerge from the canons the Colorado irrigating companies nab them and scatter the water over the plains, causing the arid waste to blossom as the rose. What They Say Bolivar ( N. Y.) Breeze. The irrigated lands produce enormous crops of alfalfa, wheat, corn and fruits of all kinds.

J. GARVIN, AgL WILL RECLAIM 50,000 ACRES ARKANSAS VALLEY. New Agricultural District Has Prom ising Future—Clough Gets. Contract for Work uMarking the opening of a now era for Kiowa and Prowers counties, by the reclamation of more than 50.0U0 acres of oemiarld land, by Irrigation, the Chiviugion Canal company of La mar, in whiah several Colorado springs men are heavily interested yesterday awarded a contract to Hie hard Clough of this city for the construction of a reservoir and a network of 50 miles of canal through the district at a cost of $200, 000. Work is to he started this morning, with 40 teams. The number will be increased by 100 teams within a week. The improvement is to bo completed within a year. The reservoir which will have a capacity of 50,000 acre feet of water, is to be constructed in Kiowa coun ty, near Chivington, on tiie Missouri Pacific railroad. The canals ter minating near Goodale on the Arkan sas river, will Irrigate a district now without water. The land in this dis trict is very fertile, lacking only wat er to produce heavy crops of fruit, grain and vegetables. Much of the land is yet open to homesteaders and other portions may be had at a very low price. The Irrigation enterprise is back ed by people who have bought land in the district or have secured it from the government by filing and settling on the claims. The company does not own or control any of the land to be reclaimed by its canals. The Chivington Canal company wa: Incorporated about a year ago with a capital stock of $300,000.

Lubers Sick Of Labor’s “Howling.” The following, taken from a demo cratic report of the proceedings the general assembly at Denver, will give a fair idea of the love for organized labor displayed by democratic lead ers after eleotion. Of course they are always overflowing with love for the laboring man when they need his votes, but just see the difference when in office, and Speaker Labors is the true representative of Colorado democracy. Speaker Lubers broke a hornets' nest about his ears in the house this morning when he entered on a speed attacking organized labor and a.inoun ed that he was opposed to the initia tive and referendum. “I shall vote for this bill to redeem my pledge,” he said, “but shall do all in my power to defeat the consti tutional amendment two years hence. Messrs. Hicks, Bellesfield, Metz, Garman and others all had their iron ings and came back at Lubers with shafts that evidently stung. The debate arose over the question of a mending the bill so as to require 10 per cent, instead of 8 per cent, of voters to sign petition* iniatlng leg islation. Lubers started the fqn by saying he was sick of hearing “dia organized labor’’ talk about its troub les in securing legislation and allus ions to ‘‘corporate interests." He saw no more reason why organized labor should have representatives in the assembly than organized capital. When Lubers announced that he was opposed to the initiative and re ferendum Bellesfield staggered him by asking if he wrote a letter to him signed “H. L. Luber," under date stf November 9, 1908, part of which remi as follows: “I have been a consistent Democrat for many years, giving loyally of my time and considerable money to ad vance the intereets of the party. I am a strong believer in the several planks adopted by the Democrats Lu their state convention, particularity the depositors guaranty law, the direct primary election law and Initiu live and referendum, and also in the enactment of a railroad commission law.’’ “I—l—may have —yes, I wrote such a letter,” stumbled Lubers, and sat down amid the smiles of the plat form Democrats, who rejoiced over the manner iu which the machine leader had ‘‘tipped his hand.” DR.
