Excerpt from Lyon County: Where It Is, and What It Contains; Close to California, Made Up of Rich Valleys and Mineral-Laden Hills, It Still Has Available Lands at Reasonable Prices, and Is an Ideal Homing SpotDuring 1913 Lyon County produced 1000 tons of barley, 50 tons of onions, tons of potatoes, tons of alfalfa, pounds of butter, pounds of honey, and a quarter million pounds of wool. Besides all this, beef mutton and hides were supplied in large quantities and 1913 was not a bumper year by any means!Yet, with all this generous output, it is safe to estimate that this county has not yet reached 25% of her final efficiency; that, normally, she should attain fully four times her present economic utility. These modest estimates are confirmed by the most conservative and well-informed investigators who fully realize that the farmers here have not all attained even an average degree of proficiency in their vocation.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
