Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta LKTHB1UDOE. ALBERTA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1920 Idaho Farmers Own And Operate Large [ion System Sage Brush Land Converted Jiito Great Wealth-Pro-' ducing Area. ;LAND WORTH FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS ACRE ON AVERAGE Small Farms Intensely Cul- tivated Yield Splendid Return to Owners, (BY HAROLD G. LONG.) V TWIN PALLS, Idaho, Oct. n "dry" country this tour has produced a mighty lot of "ivel" -talk. But thin is you weire to take tho "wer out of il as represenlc-il In ir- rigation ditches tuoro. wouldn't bo much Population J" figures for tho slalc have just; been' Issued. The total is Of those, It Is estimated by leading, irrlgallonists here, call Idaho homo because of the .of producing irrigated land. So; though Idalio'may be "very dry in some .respects, its wetness In others .in a mighty Important factor. This letter from Twin Falla will bound very, much like home to quite n Slumber of people in Coaldale dislrict. They make good irrigatbrs liere; that's iv-hy Twin Falls fanners have made good Jn tho. Lethbridge Irriga- tion helt. If they weren't good Irrlgat- -ors. they wouldn't ever, have called Twjn Kails home, for it means irrlsa- ting all the time to get by on this high priced land. I never saw real sage brush till I lilt Idaho.. That's a personal remark, and no reflection nt all on Idaho, but buying seen sage brush.In all Its glory can well.understand why they have acres of irrigated' land in the; state. .They say sage brush will Ki'ow Jack- rabbits. It ought to be u great jack rabbit slate....... _ All of which Is by no means In tho I way. of disparagement, of .the people -who hart the nerve to come in here along River and hew out one of the. greatest farming' districts in-the.U. Considers'what the. pioneers :mtist' have contended with, one can only admire their far- sightedness in evolving tho reclama- tion of such hugo tracts as arc now under the ditch. Wheat 40 Bushels to Acre This morning as ,1 came through tin's valley from Mlnneiloka fanners were busy on every hand cutting or Blacking their, third crop of alfalfa, which-is averaging ahout three-quart- ers ot a or pulling or hauling their sugar heels, or. digging their potatoes. These, wilh wheat form the principal products ot the Twin Kails and MInnedoka projects. Tho wheat Is all harvested, and pro- duced around 40 bushels to the acre on the average ;wilh some fields hit- .ting up to the CO and 70 bushel marks. It la practically all soil spring wheat, and the way the volplaning towards lha cellar hasn't tended to pul the termers in very good humor. However, they're talking ot an acre gross on 'sugar beet land so they may average lip very well if sogar doesn't'follow wheat on Ihe'to- boggan.' It is doubtful .whether the gross re- turns per acre on this project win reach-the high total of when 'acres .-produced" in crops for a per acre gross return of J8I.11 per acre. However, It doesn't Ii.'eed to run that high to give a fair enough return on land-it a SJOO val- uation, which, 1 am told, is tho aver- age here. If still there be any who are not 'converted lo the'possibilities of irri- gation, let him come to Twin Falls for enlightenment. Here ho will find on onc'sldo of the road land pro- ducing per acre In crops annual- ly. On lli5 other aide he will see the most desolate desert Imaginable, worth exactly nothing. There is no attempt to farm the dry lands. Tho'ro. Is np Irrigated land w.hlch Is not farmed to within ft .foot of the fence. Ono striking. feature ot tho farms Is that, In addition to being between 50 and GO ncnjs'-on the average, they nro all cross-tone- .ed, so that'a 160-acre field would be a curiosity.
