THE YEAR $1.50
peg PROJECT is
Joseph R' Keep, promoter of
itha; Clear Lake Irrigation Pro
ject, passed through town Mon
day on his way tq the head, pi
the proposed development. He
ptnted that the work will now be
tmshed vigorously and before
many months the long prayed
for water by the Juniper Flat
farmers will be a reality.
This irrigation project when
I ompleted will cover a large tract
. 1 the most fertile land in the
state of Oregon, and will be a
means of crop production second
to none. It will also bring into
cultivation a large area of raw
ground and stimulate the price
of farm lands that have hereto
fore stood below that of any
other part of the state.
An irrigation project of this
kind is a large undertaking and
while Mr. Keep has been ham
pred a number of times he has
never ceased in his efforts to
realize the dream of years and is
to be commended for the success
ot his labors.
