FARMERS OE THE
COUNTY PROSPER
Evidence That They Have
Cash Given by Auction
Sale Clerk.
(Staff Correspondence.)
Meridian. May 16.— E. C. Pfaffle,
cashier of the First National bank of
Meridian, Is authority for the state
ment that the farmers of Ada oounty
are 8100,000 better off than they were
a year ago, In the one Item of auction
sale notes. Mr. Pfaffle is In a position
to know whereof he speaks, as he
clerks most of the auction sales held
by the farmers of Ada county. He said
at these sales for whloh he has clerked
during past years up to and Including
19X8, the average amount of cash was
20 per cent that ths farmers paid for
goods bought at these sales. They
gave noteB for the other 80 per cent.
Farmers Batter Off Financially.
During the post year, however, the
condition of the farmers of Ada county
has greatly Improved. This Is shown
by a further statement made by Mr.
Pfaffle to the effect that the farmers
so far this year are raying an average
of 60 to 60 per cent cash for goods
bought at such sales, and aro giving
notes for the other 40 to 50 per cent.
Thus It Is seen that Ada county far
mere are paying from two and one
half to three times as much In cash as
they did prior to a year ago, and are
reducing their note obligations from 80
to 40 per cent on goods bought at auc
tion sales.
Mr. Pfaffle states that the two prime
factors responsible for the Improved
oondltlon of the Ada county farmers
are dairying and hog raising. These
two Industries are growing by leaps
and bounds, not only In Ada county
but In all of the counties of southern
Idaho and eastern Oregon.

GREAT DEVELOPMENT
ON GAMAS PRAIRIE
That the Camas Prairie section is be
coming a great hog raising country*and
also a grain belt since the advent of
the railroad to Hill City, Is the report
of E. H. Hulser, who has Just returned
from that section after spending sev
eral days there on legal business. Mr.
Hulser was greatly surprised at tha
amount of grain planted and the num
ber of hogs being raised as formerly
the ranchers had devoted their time
and land to hay raising and handling
of stock, but with a shipping point In
the heart of thé great territory, they
have branched out and added other In
dustries which will be of material
benefit to the country and add to their
profits, states Mr. Hulser.
After traveling over considerable
territory on Camas Prairie, Mr. Hulser
was greatly surprised at the amount
of development and Improvement there
since his last visit and from the plans
laid out he anticipates even greater re
sults during the coming year.
While In that section Mr. Hulser was
