Power company in this county
the Portland Telegram says:
The company has reclaimed
75,000 acres of land in Crook
county and is making rapid
strides in its work of making
the remainder of the property
placed in its care fit for settle
ment. Already COO contracts
have been made with persons
who are now living on their
holdings or are planning to go
there this Storing. The average
unit taken by the settlers is Sty
acres, although at least lOO
contracts have been made with-
persons wno want only hall
this amouQt of land.
That 40 acres is enough to
provide for a familj' is proven
by the experience of Josepli
Buckholz, one of the first set
tlers on the reclaimed land.
Buckholz is a farmer who at
tends to his land and his crops;
spending no time at the village
grocery explaining how to run.
uie government. He decided
to put ten acres of his new-
holdings into garden truck and
the remainder inrn lmv- nnl
grain. As a result Buckholz
ciearea siuu an acre on truck
land, besides making good
profit on his hay and grain.
All of the settler? who have
gone into Crook county during.
tne past few months and taken
up homes on the reclaimed land
are said to be well satisfied
with their holdings, and are
urging their friends to come. It
is expected that 20,000 acres'
will bo cultivated by nevt
September, providing homes for
700 families; counting five per
sons to each family, it is (inured
that within the next eighti
months 3500 honest, industri
ous settlers will be added to
Uook comity's population.
