HOLLEY HOWREY. A: Central Committeeman, , TO COLONIZE HOIHK VALLEY. Why no: (laut a so >ny In the Boise valley, says the Capital News. Colonization to going on In Cali fornia and also tn Wxanàigtr.n and the opportunities for hring nr a col ony of farmers Into the Boise valley, where they can purchase improved land from »125 to »800 per acre, ac cording to the Improvements, seems exceptionally good. For instance over lu the Kuna country tn as fine land as lays out of doors In any country, numerous owners there who have 100 acres and some even larger places, who do not want to aell out entirely and leave the country because it to too good a country to leave, but they win sell 40 or 80 acres of Imiruved land. There are There are also several other sec tions of the valley «here parts of ranches could be purchased and the owners of the same would he glad to welcome ne* and good neighbors and everybody would be glad to give them the welcome hand and every assistance possible. People who would come Into this section would not be pioneering In any sense of tlie word, would find hlg canals which have been carrying water for years, later al ditches cover the lands they would secure, alieU .city and telephones can be installed in any home In the vnl ley and goo-J schools are found every where. rlcta the children are-taken to and from school in covered wagons fur nished by the district, during the win ter months. Good roads leading Into the capital city of the state are found through out the country and the farthest point away Is not more than an hour or an hour and a half's ride in Ford. The valley offers great opportunity for dairying, fruit raising, poultry business and the hog raising and con servative farmers declare that 40 acres well farmed and handled on a business basis will net »2000 annum above thecost of living. Mistakes in colonization have been made in the past, hut if the Boise real estate men, will get together, is sue a call for real farmers to come Into this valley, make every plan for bringing a colony here, secure them rates on the railroad or arrange an automobile tour, it is likely that a hundred or more practical farmers could be brought Into this valley within the next few months and their addition would add much to the pros perity and progress of the valley and men and worneu who are seeking a delightful climate the year round, would be glad that they had been induced to come Into such a splendid section of the country and would be come loyal Idaho boosters and pro ducers.
