The West has the hind that uiW never wear out
The most productive section of Eastern Colorado and "Wyoming and "Western
Nebraska are comparatively rainless, thereby eliminating the washing away of noil,
and thus enabling it to become richer with each succeeding year of cultivation.
The greater parts of the states of Wyomingl, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, "Wahington,
Nevada and California, leave the volcanic a sh as a soil basis. This soil, when given
water, is the most productive in the world, and it never wears out. It is the same
volcanic soil of Southern France and Italy that produces the rarest winesC fruits and
vegetables known on the market today; that produces the wines and fruits for tho
tables of the Roman Ceasars 1800 years ago.
THE WEST HAS PLENTY OF WATER AND SUNSHINE
It is a well known fact that a greater part of the inter-mountain west re
ceives but little rain that the sun shines nearly 300 days every year but this
same sections has hundreds of rushing streams that are fed by mountain snows,
and these streams are being damned up and diverted, and by skilful methods, made
to water a soil more valuable than gold in its producing power. The records show
that Colorado has 2,500,000 acres of irrigated Tand; "Wyoming's irrigation proposi
tions projected and completed represent an outlay of $50,000,000 ; Utah ns an agri
cultural state would be impossible but for irrigation. Its agricultural products and
fruit in 1009 were worth 5,000,000; Ihaho has 5,000,000 acres of irrigated land;
Montana has thousands of acres that will bo under irrigation in the near future,
and the rainless sections of "Washington, Oregon and California have hundreds of irri
gation project developed and many that are being rapidly pushed to completion.
THE STORIES OF SUCCESS THAT COME FROM THE WEST
Simply show that thcr's no uncertainty in Etore for the man who casts hit lot on
irrigated land. t
BECAUSE: Irrigation gives the farmer the same conrolof moisture conditions for his various crops that the woman has
who waters her window-box geranium every evening from a watering can. Irrigation is simply the artificial supplying ow water
to land wher it is needed just when it is needed.
Irrigation makes possible the extremely profitable small farm of from ten to forty acres in extent. Irrigation makes possi
ble diversified crops wheat, alfalfa, berries, things on which quick money can be realized, allowing you to bide your time for
apple trees, cherry trees, orange trees, the slower maturing things to become marketable. Diversified farming allows the far
mer to dovetail his time, his water, his market to the best ad-vantage. '
Diversified crops on an irrigated farm of from ten to farty acres will support a family in present comfort and ultimate
luxury. A country of small, intensively cultivated farms means social life, good schools, churches, telephones, rural free de
liverya life that is worth living, not just bare existence. It means something to havet for your old age to leave your children
after you. ,

Wish to cpnvince the people about the wonderful possibilities of the west, and they are backing up the-Western Land-Producta
Exhibit because they reaiize that an exhibit of this kind will show people more of the real truth about this wonderful section
than any amount of pure talk and the real interest in the upbuilding of the empire is due to the fact that they realize that it is upon
the west that Omaha must depend for its future progress and greatness. I
