The New Year's issue of the

an improvement on former efforts
and is quite a valuable edition.

eral small threshings. It would
be difficult to make an estimate
of the amount of bushels per
acre, as much of the crop was
put up for hay. The potato
crop this year was good. The
people of Sunset feel much en
couraged and see a bright future
for the valley. Experience and
observation teach them that
grains and vegetables can be
grown here without water by
employing proper methods of

Sunset Valley' is the little val- of their'progressand of Sunset
ley lying just south of Wright's vallc-v-
Point and from 15 to 20 miles
south of Hums. It contains
about one township, six miles
The first settlement commenced
in the fall of 190(5, but there were
few inhabitants until the summer
of 1907. During this year, and
the year previous, nearly every
quarter section was settled upon
by homesteaders, who went to
work at once building cabins,
clearing, plowing and fencing.
The first crops were planted in
1907. Only small patches were
under cultivation, however, but
the results were very satisfactory.
During 1908 much progress was
made and many more acres were
cultivated. Rye, wheat, oats
and potatoes being the main crop.
The many and good gardens of
this year arc worthy of special
mention. One of the settlers
took first prize at the county fair,
held at Burns, for the best dis
play of vegetables.
During the fall and following
spring several fine residences,
and a school house that would be
a credit to any community,
were built. In 1909 manv more
acres were placed under cultiva
tion, orchards were set by many
and improvement of different
kinds is continually under wav.
This year crops were good in

TWO UNFORTUNATE IMRES.
The school house in tho lower
Lawen district near the lake was
destroyed by (ire some time dur
ing last Monday night. Miss
Leake, the teacher, went to
school but as none of the pupils
came on account of the very
cold weather, she went home at
noon. The next morning the
building was a heap of ashes.
Those on the scene first found
tracks leading to the school house
and away again. It is thought
some one passed and being cold,
entered the builbing and built a
fire, possibly not closing the
draft when leaving.
The home of G. O. Hendricks
in the same neighborhood was
also destroyed by tire Tuesday.
The house and entire contents
were lost and it is quite a severe
blow to Mr. Hendricks and fam
ily, especially at this season of
the year. Mrs. Hendricks and
the children had gone to Lawen
and Mr. Hendricks was out feed
ing when he discovered the
house was on fire. Ho ran to
the building in the hope of at
least saving some of the furni
ture but when he opened the
door the flames metliim, burning
his eyelashes and face quite
severely. Nothing was saved.
