Marcuse Colony, located in Sutter
County, which is in the heart of the
Sacramento Valley, is fast coming to
the front as a farming community in
which nearly every agricultural prod
uct known may be successfully raised
without irrigation.
The soil is a dark, sandy loam,
sedimentary in character, level and
well drained. It has the advantage
over other soils in that it is loose in
character and superior to heavy soils.
With this wealth of soil,, abundance
of water, unexcelled climate and long
growing season, Marcuse Colony 13
the ideal place for the homeseeker
with limited means, the worn out pro
fessional man, or the young man look
ing for a small farm in a healthful
The proximity of Marcuse Colony to
Sacramento, furnishes a ready market
for vegetables, poultry, eggs and
dairy products. Fruits, vegetables,
alfalfa, grains and grasses and poultry
yield large returns. The rainfall is
certain and drought is unknown.
Land Is yet moderately priced, but
crop failures in other sections of the
United States will bring new settlers
In rapidly. This, together with the
holding of the Panama Pacific Expo
sition in San Francisco during 1915,
is bound to raise the price, and wheth
er for a home, or for an investment,
now is the time to purchase. Land
may be had in tracts suitable to the
means of all and the results obtained
are almost beyond belief. Further in
formation will be gladly furnished by

Resting Must Be a Business.
Will M. Ross, a well-known writer
of Stevens Point, Wis., who is himself
a cured consumptive, holds that un
less resting becomes a business to the
tuberculosis patient, he might as well
give up his fight for health. "The pe
riod of infection with tuberculosis,"
he says, "is not a vacation. It is a
twenty-four-hour-a-day job. True it is
a period of idleness, but one of intel
ligent, directed Idleness. The day's
work should consist of rest rest
should be the only business on hand.
The light exercise, or hour of read
ing, should be considered as the re
ward of a good day's work, like the
evening of slippered ease to the tired
business men at the end of the day.
This recreation, however, should be
considered only as an incidental re
sult of the patient's work, not the
mah object."

J. D. Deits, Commissioner of Immigra­
tion, is Making a Tour of the
State to Arouse Interest.
Mitchell.—J. D. Deits, commission
er of immigration of South Dakota, is
making a tour of the state to try and
interest the commercial clubs in the
enterprise of having South Dakota
represented at the national land show
to be held at Chicago December 9.
Mr. Deits said there were no funds
provided in the immigration bureau
to bear this expense, and that the oc
casion was one which would have to
be met by popular subscription. He
was following the plan of getting the
commercial clubs of the state to do
nate the money, which will reach the
sum of ?500. It is the idea to get a
portion of the agricultural exhibit from
the display at the state fair at Huron
and from the Mitchell corn palace,
and other material will be selected
from various parts of the state. Al
though it is a dry year in all sections
of the country, Mr. Deits said that
Sruth Dakota can make a splendid
showing with the best states of the
union from all he has seen in the state.
Mr. Deits made the statement that
his department wis now in confer
ence with an eastern agency for the
locating of several hundred Russian
and Hungarian families in this state,
and that if successful in securing tliem
they would be sent here in the spring.
Mr. Deits spent the day in Mitchell
and left for other points in the state.

Something like 10,000 head of cattle
are now pasturing in the northern
Black Hills on the forest reserve, and
nearly the same number in the south
ern Hills. This unusually large num
ber is due to the drouth conditions
and the .scarcity of fe"d in th3 western
part of the state. Owners adjacent
to the reserve consider themselves
fortunate as they are able to drive
their stock into the reserve but those
out on the range where there is no
water holes, cannot drive their stock
anywhere to even ship. There are
also about 3,000 head of sheep pastur
ing on patented mining grounds in
the Blacli Hills, although they are not
allowed to get off the claims.
Several hundred people were pres
ent i: the launching of a big dredge
boat in the Vermillion river 12 miles
noi'th of Vermillicn. The boat is 11N
110 feet, and it was necessary to widen
the river at the launching point 10
feet. The project for which it will be
used is the construction of the Ver
million Valley ditch, which will be
about 75 feet in width and a dozen feet
111 depth. It will be 14 miles in length,
and is said to be the second largest
inland project under way in the Unit
ed States. The cost of the boat, com
plete, will reach close to $10,000. while
the contract price for the drainage
ditch is $170,000. This will be paid
by the land owners along the route
who are benefited.
