AN EXTENSIVE ENTERPRISE.
uuk oull DAY
Last Saturday was a great succe
on tho Walla Walla Ulvor," said A. S.
Pearson, of Freewater, "which will
Irrigate nearly the entire tract of
G400 acres lying Idlo between Free
water and tho Hudson Hay.
"When once under Irrigation this
tract of land will grow anything that
Is native to tho temperate zone. I am
now selling land at $300 to $500 per
acre, which Is not as good land a,s
some of this tract that Is lying un
used at our door."
Tho great tract of arid land is ono
of tho most wonderful Irrigation
schemes of tho West. It Is surround-j
ed on all sides by fertile fields and
orchards; it is a warm, sandy soil,
easily Irrigated and extremely fertllo
under a very mild application of
If a lovee costing not moro than
S3000 will Irrigate this body of land,
comprising 6(00 acres, It is a subject
for Immedlato investigation by tho
Columbia River Basin Association.
This body of land divided up Into
40-acro tracts would support 1G0 fami
lies, it would add at least 10 times
Its present value to the taxable prop
erty of tho county.
It will grow live tons of alfalfa to
tho acre per year; 40 to BO bushels of
wheat, 300 to 400 bushels of pota
toes, fruits of overy variety and such
an abundance of vegetables as would
bo almost Incredible.
Tho fertllo Walla Walla valley lies
on ono side of It, tho Milton fields
and orchards on tho other. Tho
same state of fertility would bo found
upon this tract under Irrigation, that
is seen in the adjoining districts.
