It's a coun try whoro tho farm hands got "woll fixed" so fast thcro Is no ono left to milk tho cows, Coos county, Oregon, is typical of tho enterprise, Industry, and thrift of all tho Northwestern stales. Thcro is a county of farmers nnd lumbermen with 125 miles lying botweon It and tho nonrost railroad, and yot thoy erect at tho Portland fair a $25,000 building In which to exhibit tholr wares. What say you, Plko county, Indiana, to thlst Tho banks of Oregon havo doposlts to tho amount of $2,000 to every man, woman and child within its borders, and Oregon is not tho great eat of theso states. Referring to tho future of Irrigation In tho North Coast states, Mr. Jones sayst Tho groat est Industrial conquest that has followed tho trail of Lowls nnd Clark is tho conversion of wasting mountain wntors to tho parched lands of tho deserts. Irrigation is king. Ten years ago it was an experiment. To day It Is employing moro than a bil lion dollars, nnd, though n giant, It has just begun to grow. It is tho antaeus of American industry, doubling In power with ovory touch to earth. The hopeless Interior of Washington and Oregon, na well as tho groat stroaches of Idaho, nro beginning to bloom. Wealth Is being created from the great storehouses of wntor, sunshine, and soil, Flvo hundred thousand acres of Oregon's arid land will bo transformed to a garden this year alone, Tho Unit ed States wilt loam that It has a big ger uso for its money than buying gold braid for tin soldiers; that It has yet room for tho emigrant who comos to do and dare. Prosperity lies waiting on tho desert. Where once roamed the savage, Unlf starved Yakima, today stands a community moro thickly set tled by fur than the farm regions of Rhodo Island. Wonatchee, lUUvllle, Kcnnowick, Lowlston, Missoula, and other horticultural conters are monu ments to tho marvels of the most an- clont agricultural system which has been redomonatrated in Western Amer ica. When ten acres of land can yield a profit under this system which 00 acres will refuso to do in either New Jersey or Connecticut, the power of the ditch, is proven, and either Irrigation PROFESSIONAL SIEN, absorb ed in their work, need not tako on additional worry about their clothes.
