Eddy county, which ia 66 by 102 mitee (consisting, except in the Irriga ted district, of free government range atill open to homesteader), has soma of the largest ranch in the world. Of late years Irrigation ha made pos sible farming and growing fruit and vegetables, the feed crop being alfalfa, katHr corn' and milo maice. Experiment prove that cotton can be raised successfully, producing from a half to a bale to the acre at this altitude, 8,121 feet.

This portion of the val ley is the only part having gooJ fruit crop this year, It has a good fruit crop every year. Investi gation will show these statement to be true. Alfalfa Alfalfa Is a very paying crop, Mr. Anderwerth, who live about two mile from Malaga, haa a piece of alfalfa sown last year from which the first cutting brought him nearly ten dollars per acre and he will cut three or four more crops as good or bet ter this year. It is safe to any that alfalfa 'will pay from forty to fifty dollars per acre each year and that fruit witl pay twice or three times aa much. - oa It Is confidents believed that fa-lsbai Is near the center of the largest undeveloped oil Held in Am erica.
