Intreetlng Description of the Growth
of This Important Phase of Desert
Reclamation and Cultivation.
The progress In agriculture In the
arid states and territories during the
decade ending with 1899 Is shown in
the report just published by the Di
vision of Agriculture of the Twelfth
Census. As this progress Is attribu
table largely to irrigation, the sta
tistics relating thereto are of general
The number of Irrigators - in the
United States in 1899, nOt including
irrigators of rice, was 108,218, -an in
crease in ten years of 99.9 per cent.
The area irrigated was 7,539,545 acres
an increase of 107.6 per cent. Of this
area, 5,944,412 acres were in crops,
1,095,133 acres in pasture and un
matured crops. The cost of irrigation
systems in operation, exclusive of
those on rice plantations, was $G7,
770,942, while the value of the irrigat
ed crops was $8C,860,491.
The total length, of all the main
ditches in. the arid and semi-arid
states and territories was 44,149
Average, of 71 Acres.
The average number of irrigated
acres in farms in arid states and tei-
ritorles was 71; the average value of
irrigated land per acre, $42.53; the
average value of crops produced on
irrigated land, $14.81; the average
first cost of water, $7.80; the average
annual cost of maintenance, $0.38. Of
the 5,711,965 acres in crops, hay and
forage occupied 3,665,654, or 64.2 per
cent; cereals, 1,399,709, or 24.5 per
cent; vegetables, 168,432, or 2.9 per

In Oregon the number of irrigators
Increased from 3,150 In 1899 to 4.63C
in 1899, or 47.2 per cent, and the unm
ber of acres irrigated from 17 1, 944
to 388.310. or 118.2 ner cent. The
ditches In operation in 1899 had a
length of 2,283 miles, cost $1,838,782,
and irrigated 388,111 acres. There
wore 199 acres Irrigated from wellb.
The irrigated area in crops was 290,
256 ares, yielding products valued at
$3,0Q2,92o. The area irrigated in

Statistics Being Compiled.
Shortly after sending tho Irrigation
bill to tho president, congress passed
a resolution authorizing the director
of the census to compile statistics
relating to Irrigation for the crop year
oi 1902. With the data now assem-
bled, this work will bo comparative
Jy simrle, most of it being done by
correspondence. To secure this in
formation inquiries will soon be sent
out "to Irrigators throughout the
United States. The co-operation of
those interested In irrigation Is earn
estly solicited for upon their prompt!
response will depend very largely tne
value or these statistics. This is in
part a supplementary work, the ro
suits of which will be utilized in the!

Interesting Studies Being Made by
Bureau of Forestry.
A line of work recently taken up
by the bureau of forestry, and for the
first time receiving adequate atten
tion in the United States, Is the study
of tho tendency of natural forests to
extend over the land devoid of .forest
growth. This tendency has been no
ticed in many parts of tho country,
but has never been studied with a
view of controlling It for practical
use, or assisting It where desirable.
A field party from the bureau Is
now Investigating the reproduction
of white pine on pastures and aban
doned lands in Massachusetts and
New Hampshire, to learn the condl
tions under which reproduction takes
place. The bureau Is making this In
vestlgatlon In order to bo able to
give owners of such lands directions
as to the best methods of handling
them, with a view of securing a stand
of pine by natural seeding.
A field party of six men is studying
the same problem in Oklahoma, in
connection with the hardwood growth
which composes the timber belts of
that region. It haB been, found in cer
tain places in the Middle West that
natural forest belts have extended up
streams as much as two miles, Jn the
last 25 years. Particular attention
will be paid to devise methods for
extending and improving tho forest
growth of the Wichita forest reserve
where at present the" stand of timber
consists only of a, scattering growth
