Mr. Co.e and Mr. Ferry, just previous to this time, had been through Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Indian Territory and Texas looking for farms. On the 24th. of June they arrived in the Bear River valley and after spending a few days there, Mr. Cole and Mr. John Ferry each selected 160 acres and Mr. Hickok SO acres. On their return they looked at irrigated land in Colorado and Neb raska. A little later Cole and Terry took a trip through Idaho, Washington and British Columbia and after Mr. Geo. Hickok added 40 more acres to his 80. AS TO THE "MORMONS.

To Insure short hauls to market, the Malad branch of the Oregon Short Line has placed sidings and dumps every two miles. This is one of the examples of how Utah, from the first has bent her energies to favor the farmers, and the unprecedented developement and pros peril y of the state has shown the wisdom of her course. Mr. Moroni Mortensen In Bear Riv. er valley has a seven acre u!2 (trees six to ten years old). He sold from this orchard 700 boxes first class apples, and 600 boxes second class. These apples netted him on the ground, after paying for the boxes, the first class 90 cents a box the second class 50 cents a box, or or$930 net from a young seven-acr- e chard. His peaches, pears, prunes, plums, and cherries did equally well. R.
