facilities now under construction.
Th acll la known ti "Facrnrnento
loam," dnrlt itray In color, varying from
elfht to twelve fort In depth, and when
properly tilled and watered will produce
astounding results. Water Is procured In
Inexhaustible quantities from wells bored
to a depth of about elchty feet Into a
very coarse gravel. The, water rlss to
within fifteen feet of the surface and Is
then raised by electric power for Irriga
tion and domestic purposes.
The cllmatlo conditions are Ideal. Ac
cording to the ITnltcd Klates weather
bureau report for the last fifteen years
tli temporatura la almost Identical with
southern Italy. Any and all of the
(rains, grasses, nuts and fruits that are
grown In the temperate or semi-tropical
tones will grow and thrive In this won
derful valley. Figs, oranges, lemons, po
melos, plums, peaches, aprloots, cherries
and all varieties of grapes, KnKUh and
black wulnuts, almonds, etc., thrive In
abundance. '
The land of the California Farm
I'roducta company Is all planted to the
commercial (Smyrna) figs.
The fig tree la allowed, to bear when It
Is I years old, from date of planting, pro
ducing about 100 pounds of dried fruit to
the tree, and usually brings ftty cents per
pound. The trees are planted about forty
feel apart, making twenty-aoven trees to
the acre, which will produce an Income
of about 11-16 per acre. After five years
the trees will yield a greater amount of
tlse fruit each year until they are In full
bearing. , r
The river and streams give the sports
man a chance for all kinds of game and
fishing. In the fall and winter months
iuatl, duck and geeso abound and are
aeon all over the valley by thousands.
Land value In all California and espe
cially the Sacramento valley, will surely
doublo when tha Panama oanat la com
pleted, which will make Sacramento and
fcan Francisco two of the greatest ship
ping points In the United States.
One of tha reasons, and perhaps the
greatest, for the wonderful development
of the valley la the Sacramento river,
which la recently taking an added Im
portance. Of approximately 1.000,000 tons
of product raised In tha valley, about
MO.OUO tons' are now transported on the
river to Ban Francisco. '

Omaha business men generally arc
booster for the Omaha Land show, ray
ing that a-ld from the direct benefit to
th merchants from th attendance at
tho ahow, th development of th west
resulting from th show will extend
Omaha' trade, benefiting Jobber and
manufacturers directly and all other
business Indirectly by making Omaha a
larger town.
"It will build up agriculture In the
west, which will b advantageous to
Omaha." said Arthur C. Smith, member
of tho board of governors of Ak-Sar-Ben
and head of the house of M. K. Smith

''The Land show causes people to the
east of us to buy laud to the west of us,
and the resulting development will make
Omaha grow," said President C. C.
Oenrgo of the Real Kstate exchange.
"Any enterprise Is a good thing for
Cniaha that will turn people away from
Florida and Canada and Induce them to
settle In the west."

"Th Land show is a grt thing for
Omaha and Nebraska," raid Herman B.
Peters, proprietor of the Merchant hotel.
"It not only shows the farmers the pos
sibilities bf their land but It shows th
city people how they may make a splen
did horn for themselves on a smull tract
of land they may be able to 'secure and
thus work out the adage of 'back to th

P. W. Judson, manager of tho Midland

"The land where) one crop pays -for the
lund," Is the sign thit attracts Land
lio visitors at the Coliseum.
People wonder where tills land can b
and frequently laugh at th Idea, but hey
ar soon convinced after a talk with C.
L. Beatty. the man In charge, who ex
plains that tha exhibit conic from Pin
Bluff, th first nation In Wyoming on
the main line of U- Union Pacific.
The Pin Bluff proposition Is on of
dry farming nd one where the system
has proven a great success, as there ha
never been a ci ou fall Jre.
Prior to 18M th country round I'ln
Bluff wa given over to the cattlemen,
though a small Swedish settlement wa
established further north a early a
U87. In IS after the Roosevelt order for
fnncos to como down, the country settled
rapidly and since then settlers have been
pouring In and buying land, much of
which remains for purchase at t!5 par
acre on easy terms and crop payments.
This land, according to Mr. Beatty, will
produce, u crop, the returns from which
the fliitt year pay for the land. This
crop j flax, something that Is a sur
revenue of from i0 to $i per acre.
AlthouKh dry farming Is carried on In
this section of Wyoming, the average an
nual rainfall U eighteen Inches, ten and
one-half inches of It falling during the
four growing months of the year.
On the hlKh, level table land wheat
yields from ten to forty bushels per acre,
and o its twenty-five to forty, Weighing
a hlKh as forty-four pounds to the
bushel. It Is a natural alfalfa country,
the land producing two cutting per year
nnd the yield running from two to three
tons per act. Taxes are low, tht year
hivlncr been 17-25 per 10 acres.
Although no claim are mad to this
section of Wyoming being a corn country,
this year this cereal Is yielding twentv-
flve bushels per acre. The finest veg
etables In the world are mined, all grow
ing to enormous size.
In 1305 I'ln Bluff shipped mor oat
than any station on the Union Paclfto
between Grand Inland and the west line
of Wyoming.
Since locating In Pin Bluff Mr. Beatty
alone has located mor than 1.000 families
on farms In th vicinity, which simply
give an Idea of the rapid growth of that
portion of th state.

Attackers on Car

Decause they Imagined they waited too
long for a street car to convey them to
Omaha. Carl Vanberg, Ed Qlerardt and
J. T. Reld decided they would smash the
wlndowa of th next ear that came along
If It did not atop. Th decision was
reached about 1 o'clock yesterday morn
ing after the men had stood about five
minutes at the corner of Avenue A and
Twenty-sixth street. Tha next oar hap
pened to be one returning from Omaha,
and when It passed th men fired a vol
ley of brickbats at It. Two windows were
smashed and several of the passengers
had narrow escapes from Injury. The
car was stopped and baoked up to the
point where the men were still standing
and were found to be In a woozy condi
tion. Angry passengers swarmed out bent on
wreaking summary vengeanoe, but were
restrained by the conductor. He made
the men put up tl for the broken windows
and continued Ms journey eastward. At
the Pearl street Junction he reported
th incident to the police station, giving
a good description of the men. Captain
Shafer and a squad of officers went down
and found th men at Twenty-eighth

At th meeting of the council on Mon
doy night Manager Wolfe umb:ttd a
blue print Indicating the proposed course
of th wire through tiie cty and passing
through Ita local office. The line was
to leave McPherson avenue, where the
transcontinental w Ires enter the city, pass
north to Broadway at Oak street, follow
Broadway west to Stutsman street, then
pass south to Tierce street and follow
that thoroughfare to Third street In
the rear of the Masonic temple. From
that point it was proposed to carry the
wires underground down tho alley, cross
ing Fourth. Main und Pearl streets to
the company's office, and then be re
sumed on poles westward to Ninth street,
where It would cross Broadway nnd fol-.
low the line of alleys to the river. The
aldermen decided to refuse thru request
as It would require a change In the ordi
nance, and to instruct the company that
It only way to evade tho ordinance was
to run Its llna of poles down Indian creek.
This was uggested at the meeting of
th council, and Manager Wolf stated
that It would be Impossible to construct a
line along the creek, as it would be of a
"snn-key" character and would require tho
setting of nt least 1,000 stubs, and If built
In the best mannor possible would prob
