The results obtained within the
short period of two years surely arc
most wonderful, and clearly loretcll
that this will become one of the
principal fruit districts of the world.
Owing touts high elevation, the
fruit pruhlems are prohibly the
most difficult in the vicinity 1 of

use of water arc more advanced,
aud it is to tills vieiuitv thut we will
principally refer. As trtttal, straw

profitable crop, and nn experiment
