I How Irrigation Changed the South Tuber Correspondent Interviews Visitor Who Tells About Early Arizona Days (From uur Own CorrespondonO TABEK, Mar. .1. Cooper of Medicine lint, is staying: at the Khon- ulda. A Kentuckian by birUi. but, rosi- dent fox Jiiuoy in Central Tex- as, Arizona, and Washington. Mr, I'oeptT is a firm believer in irriga- tion, and has made a close study of its effects on the soil, and his ex- j perience is that wherever introduced, I it has changed the character ot the soil to a surprising extent. Having 'lived in the famous Salt River Valley in Arizona, he is quite, familiar with conditions before and after the big Roosevelt dam was put in. Previous to the construction of the grout re- clamation project, he has of i small game perishing, owing 10 thirst, due to the complete abr.oucc of rain, but shortly after the big: reservoir I was built, rains becamy ?o frequent that in some years the fanners have found its use imaocossary. iu Unit section, south of Phoenix, which ho has seen mounds _r> Petit deep, a sand waste, in fact, and when tin ir- rigation system was proposed, the promoters were laughed at. However, large numbers of men and teams were gathered, the farmers-to-be working collectively, and the huge drifts level- led, after which the canals were in- troduced. Land that was a joke and brought three cents an acre, sells now 'for an acre, for he irrigation water so affected the soil that it became like a brown loam and will gruw anything. Long staple cotton grows so high that a stepladder is often req'.iired to pick St. however wild the tale may seem. Watermelons and all kinds of produce can be grown now where would not grow before. Of some produce there are three crops, and farmers there do not require, or want, as a more than 100 acres of land. ''Get South Al- berta said Mr. Cooper, "and there is no soil that I have seen will do more than this present land of weeds. I cannot understand why there is when prosperity is just around the corner. You can't grow trees, not because of wind alone, but you haven't Iho water. Arizona boats this for wind, hut it has lots nf troys, and all because of, water. It Suuthoru Alberta gols the water, it will become one of the richest sections of tin; coun- try." The Arlxouan also told of an in- cident ho observed in in a dry year or two, ibe farmers iu a certain district could grow nothing, but one man bad bit: success. A big coult'o was on the farm ami he dammed tins up ami stored snow water, then flooded the fields below. The rest had nothing, but this man had 41 bushels per acre, and Mr. Cooper saw him cutting bis second crop of oats for that summer, and it was wiiist-blgh. The Southerner itn nlso :i t'irrti support- er of sunflower cultivation, and be says there is no fodder like it for richness. Weeds are absent where sunflowers are and the latter are the easiest plants imaginable to grow. In the southwest they thresh out the seeds and use them for horse feed, though he had seen some raidroad men on construction uancs crush them for use in this way. Mr. Cooper said, from what he observ- ed, less land, better farmed; and irriga- ted, would do Southern Alberta a world of good, and he expected in time the farmers would find they could make more-money, with less expense, by this i method. In the southwest bt? farms j had gone and men who had thousands J nf acres before would not now j more than two hundred, some not {eighty, and were better oft than before. j Mr. Cooper, by the way. is here with a j bunch 01 horses for C.
