Modesto, the Automobile Gateway to Yosemite

Excerpt from Modesto, the Automobile Gateway to Yosemite Many volumes of promotion literature are going broadcast to induce the homeseeker to settle in California, and the promises made can be realized in most instances if the reader will look upon farming as a business which requires brains, enthusiasm, persistency and patience. Though the fields may be tilled twelve months in the year, and crops rotate with the seasons when water is turned from the artificial rivers, no bank accounts or credit will accrue to the shiftless or unthrifty. Nor will success come to him who waits upon the climate of the Golden State, despite its wonderful reputation. Man shall work in California as he labors in any other quarter of the globe and the proposition in the Modesto District becomes simple and clear when he reasons as follows: "I can grow an ear of corn, a potato, a melon, a pumpkin or a peach: I can raise a hog or a calf; as bountifully or as large as I have produced and can sell for as much as I have realized in middle-western or eastern markets. Therefore I am on even terms. If any increment obtains by reason of mild and healthful climate, longer growing seasons, closer and better markets, and increased value to the lands aspeople settle upon them, I shall be ahead in this district."
