THE GRAND FORKS DAILY HERALD, MONDAY EVENING, APRIL 12, 181V,
FOR OtOP SEASON
Northern Pacific Agricultur
al Expert Thinks West
ern Dakota is O. K.
B- A. Willson, agricultural agent of
the Northern Pacific Railway com
pany, who has supervision over the
demonstration farms of that company
from western North Dakota to the Pa
cific coast, in a letter to Commissioner
of Agriculture Flint, discusses agri
cultural conditions of western North
Dakota and predicts a prosperous sea
son in the slope country. He says:.
"I have just returned to Mandan
after spending a week on the Mott
"I think I have never seen better
prospects for a good crop and a pros
perous season in the Missouri slope
"The good crop- and high prices of
last year, have combined to give the
farmers the needed working capital
to handle their farms advantageously.
They are in a position to farm more
land and to farm It better than ever
before. More fall plowing was done
than In previous years and there Is a
large acreage ready, for wheat. Al
though there has not been much snow,
it has not been' a dry winter, and very
little moisture, has escaped from the
soil. Farmers everywhere were In the
fields last week and many were sow
"The most encouraging sign and the
one that )eads me to predict prosperi
ty for the slope country is the great
increase In the number of livestock
on the farms. In spite of the high
price of wheat several thousand head
.of cattle have been,shipped into the
country during the past year and they
are still coming, and the increase In
swine is just as great. The farmers
have learned that exclusive wheat
farming is not profitable, but that a
system of farming that combines
wheat growing with the production of
milk and meat will-bring good returns
no matter what the season may be.
"The introduction^ of livestock on
the farms has caused a great increase
in the corn acreage, and it is proving
to be one of the most profitable crops
that can be grown. Many silos have
been built during the past season and
the number will be more than doubled
this year. It has been found that al
falfa can be grown profitably, and
many farmers are -beginning to grow
this best of forage crops.
"The farmers of the slope Country
have learned or are learning that a
few good milk cows, with their weekly
cream check,'will pay ail living ex
penses and that, a smaller acreage of
wheat .on corn ISnd and better culti
vated will yield double the profit ob
tained from the old wholesale meth
ods. I think this :WlU always be one of
the best wheat growing sections in
the United States, "tooth in yield and
in the quality of grain. The soil and
the climate are adapted to the grow
ing of the best wheat, and the in
troduction of live stock will make far
bigger yields for ah'Indefinite time."

The Bright Angel
The path down the southern
Grand Canyon of
the Colorado is known as the
Bright Angel Troll. No one
can at all comprehend the can
yon proportions without mak
ing this trip. The .trail is a
narrow path cut out of the side
of the cliff and sig-saggs at a
sharp pitch for the first two
miles. We rode mules, they
walked along the outside of the
trail and It took all the nerve
tyc liad to keep steady. The
Kiiitlc assured' us the mules
could be trusted. My mule's
name was "Molly." She seem
ed to enjoy the scenery, coming
to the short turns she would
stand for a minute with head
and neck extended over the
cliff where a single slip would
send me' dashing 2,500 feet
down the gorge. I simply held
my breath and waited for Molly
to make the turn which she al
ways did successfully. Arriving
at the point called Turtle's
Head we lunched on the rocks
above the grand gorge in view
of the rushing river with per
pendicular cliffs extending 3,000
feet, upwards. It Is said to pre
sent the greatest view of its
kind In all the world.
