the Desert Baffled Settlers.
Washington, Jan. 3. A previous
letter In this series cave a brief ac
count of the 20-acro alfalfa farms,
supplemented by cows and creamer
ies, which a Chicago man thinks Is
Just the thins for the lands now-be
ing ungated on the Colorado desert,
in southeastern California, and which
he Is backing with his money by as
sisting small settlers to get a start.
These 20-acrc farms furnish a
striking contiat with' those of 320
and 640 acres which are being ac
quired In the same section under tho
desert land law. But hero Is the
story of another man one of .tho
richest manufacturers In the Missis
sippi valley who thinks that 20 acr.is
makes a farm just four times too big
for tho average settler who has little
to Invest except his labor and brains.
This other manufacturer is N. O.
Nelson of St. Louis, who conducts a
model profit-sharing Industrial town
at Leclalrc, Illinois, across the river
from tho great Missouri metropolis.
Mr. Nelson is a genuine philanthro
pist, though of a practical kind, since
Ills idea is to help people to help
themselves and to show them how to
become Independent Instead of de
pendent. For years ho has been casting
eyes toward the deserts of tho West.
He was looking for a place where
poor people who are out of health,
particularly with pulmonary or throat
diseases, might go and forget their
Ills while engaged In profitable out
Health In the Desert.
He wanted a very dry place whro
tho air is filled with healing balm
and whore the sunshine takes tho
place of drugs and artificial heat. He
found this ideal spot on tho western
edgo of tho desert, about 120 miles
east of Los Angeles.
Hero he established the Indo
Health Camp about IS months ago.
Hfi bought a tract of land which is
Irrigated by nrtesian wells' and pro
ceeded to erect cheap but comforta
ble quartets for his colonists whom
lie had no difficulty in securing in
Mr. Nelson believes that true pros
perity in the land of Irrigation is to
bo had by tho Intensive cultivation of
11 lit farms rather than tho wasteful
tilling of big ones. And at Indio ho
believes five acres are enough. v-
On these smnll areas his settlers
are raising table grapes, melons,
sweet potatoes and other products
which aio readily sold In nearby mar
kets at fancy price?. In that favored
8i-ct these garden crops mature ear
lier than elsewhere In California and
aio therefore very profitable.
Tim Indlo people believe they will
achieve Independence before many of
their tend hungry neighbors, who a-.c
acquiring from G4 to 12S times r.s
much land under tho desert land law
ns they aro buying from Mr. Nelson
at tost price and paying for with the
pri.feeds of their land and labor.
The truth of tho matter Is that the
people of Indlo are making homes
and tilling the land, while their more
acquisitive neighbors aro speculating
in the nubile domain.
Tlilt. speculation will go on as jong
a.i the land laws continue to favor
huinau greed rather than human
need. The desert land net act er!y
enables tho acquirement of large
tracts of tovcrnment land, but It m
nuires no settlement or residence
whatever. William K Smythe.

MINISTERS' HALF FjARE.
Rate Will Be Continued, Out Under
It has been reported that the ruil
road companies of tho West liuvo de
cided not to issue hulf rutea to the
ministers in tho year to como, but
tho rumor beems to bo groundless.
Tho blanks for tho half rate permltH
have not been recelvod as yet by the
local office, and In tbo meantime they
ure allowing, on ordoro from head
quarters, the old cards of last year
to bo used.
Hut, whllo It ia thought that the
company will not abrogate its half
faro agreement with tho ministers, It
Is thought that some more biudlng
restrictions will bo put on tbo Issu
ance of mom, no that tholr abuso will
be restricted. It has become so that
a great many persons who aro not'
membera of tho cloth have becurod
the cards In aomo manner, and aro
riding on thu half faro when they are
not entitled to do so. ,
It la this abuso that tho companies
aro protesting about, and In all prob
ability some action will bo taken that
will make It' harder for one who in
not a bona fldu minister to secure a
half rate card. It will perhaps be so
arranged that only cortain offices
will be allowed to Issue tho permits,
and the agent at these offlcea will bo
rnado strictly responsible for the
ones Issued from bis office. In this
way It Ih thought that there will be
less abuse and nt the same tlmo til
of the r-ilvHcRt-H will bo continued
