, A fcy ,daya ago a. young man
drove into Ilend who was in pretty
destitute circumstances, lie had
vnough money to buy feed for hi
horses and then was obliged to bor
row money to provide ultntelf, wife
nnd child with food. Today he
has a filing on a homestead and it
earning $- ajday with the aid of hi
(earf). The good part of it is that
work is plentiful and he can nnd
all the work he wants at those
This young man is not a knocker
If you ask him how he likes the
country lie replies with' n broad
smile that it's jdenty ood enough
Tor him. And (die hj more than
clad that he en pre. The llullclin
knows Other steh' who came into
this country and afterwards bor
rowed enough money to jcnd for
their, families. Later some of them
lold. cut property they had in the
x:autimc accumulated, clearing
tip from two to five thousand dol
lars. IJveryone who might conn
here undoftbtcdly could not do a
welLin so.sbori. a time as the last
panned cases, but if anything is cer
tain it is that there is no better
place in the big and growing West
tor n young man, with strength and
a willingness to work, to come nnd
last his lot. There is a great de
mand for labor and good wages are
bciug paid. ,Thc ditch company
and (thc sy.unills are constantly
hampered lr- the scarcity of labor.
''he need is-urgent and everyone
who so desires can find employ
ment. - Aside from the mere matter of
finding work and earning wages,
there are many opportunities for
the wise investment of the savings
of the young man who saves. The
Bulletin is safe in saying that land
values here are still at a very low
stage. The past two years hag seen
an increase in timber values that
was simply astounding to some who
'lad previously maintained that tim
bcr claims would never bring- such
a price. And, oven now the price
of timber is ridicuously low. Ten
years will bring as much if not more
of a surprise in increased land val
ues. Shrewd men who have studied
other irrigation projects sty that we
have here one of the beit in the on
.ue country. Our mhI m rich, our
climate healthful and delightful,
and there is an abundance of water
for irrigation. There is only one
biug lacking and that is trauspor
'. tion. Kverything indicates that
that will son be supplied. Why
'.ben should not irrigated lunds here
approach in value those in other
vetions? There is no reason whv

Late Watermelons Arc Luscious.
Luscious watermelons are still
bciui; brought to the Madras market
by the ranchers of the neighborhood
and the quality of these late melons
is equal it not supciior to that ripen
iug earlier in the season. The soil
and climate of thts section seems
especially adapted to gtowittg of
large melons of .superior quality,
and when transportation means aic
improved this crop will doubtless be
one from which considerable reve
nue will be derived. The melons
develop perfectly on the plateau
lands without irrigation and with
slight cultivation Pioneer.

'I ho Waning llanlwnnd Supply,
Although demand for hardwood
lumber Is gteatcr than ever before,
the auuuiil cut to-day is 11 billion
feel less Uiaii it was seven years
aiiu In this time the wholemile
prices ol the dilfcrent claws of
hardwood lumber advanced fiont 25
to . ir cent. Tue cut of oak.
which in 1809 was more than hull'
the total cut ot hardwooda.ha fallen
ofT vv per cent. Yellow jwplur,
which was formerly second in toint
of output, has fallen off 38 ier cent,
and elm has fallen off one half.
The cut of softwoods U ovct four
times that of hatdwood, yet it is
doubtful if a .shortage in the former
would catte dismay in so many in
dustries. The cooperage, furniture,
a ti d vehicle industries de
pend Upon hardwood timber, and
the railroads, telephone and tele
graph companies, agricultural im
plement manufacturers., and builders
use it extensively.
This leads 1,0 the question, Where
is the future supply of hardwoods
to be found? The cut iu Ohio
and Indiana, which, seven uars
ago, let) all other stalest, has fallen
off one half. Illinois, Iowa, Ken
tucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mis
souri, Newjcrsey, Tciinussce.Tcxas,
West Virgiua, and Wisconsin have
also declined 111 hardwood prod tie
tton. The chief centers of produc
tion now lie in the lake states, the
lower A!tNiipil valley, and the
Appalachian Mountains. Vet in
the lake states the jwesencc
of hardwoods is au almost certain
indication of rich agricultural land,
and when the hardwoods are cut
the Und i. turned permaiienllv
to agricultural use. In Arkansas,
Louisiana, and Misfanppi the pro
duct iott of hardwoods w cleat ly at its
extreme height, and iu Miseourinnd
Texas it has already begun to
The answer to the question would
therefore seem to lie in the Aupuln
chian Mouutiaus. They contain
the largest body of hardtvood timber
left iu the United States. On them
grow Che greatest variety of tree
species any white to be I mind
Protected from fire and reckless
cutting, they produce the best kind
ol timber, since their soil ami clim
ate combine to make heavy ktatids
ami tapid growth. Yet much of
the Appalachian forest has been so
damaged in the past that it will lie
vears before it will again reach a
high state of productiveness
Twenty billion feet of hardwoods
would lie conservative estimate of
the annual productive capacity of
75,000,000 acres of forest laud in
the Appalachians if they were r'ght
ly mauaged. Until tbey arc we can
expect a shortage in hardwoj.1
