Excerpt from Eastern Farmers and Eastern Fairs
I became impressed with the general aims and wants of the Eastern farmer, which on many important subjects harmonize with the aims and wants of the farmer in the West. Markets, transportation, water navigation, fertilization, postal facilities, agricultural education, seed selection, dairying, stock breeding, etc., are subjects that interest all farmers in all parts of the country, but where the Pacific Coast farmer and the Eastern farmer would divide would be on the subjects of irrigation, methods of cultivation, and the character of products likely to prove most profitable. It may be mentioned though that the states bordering the west bank of the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountain states, as well as those of the Southwest, are becoming keenly alive to the importance of irrigation.
