. Another very Impcrtant faol baa
been forcibly brought to my attention
which is tha advantages a tub-irrigated
or naturally moiat soil has over
tbose wbiob require irrigation. '
The only tbing required on tbia eo
called Band Ridge, (wbioh M a soil
oonaiating of rich loan mixed ' with a
fine tend, oontaining no rocke or gr
re or alkali) ia cultivation eo ae to
keep down weedeand graae, and keep
tbe surface fine and level .
So irrigation ia required at all, at
tbe soil when properly cultivated it
always moiat, doing away with the
oosfiand labor of artificial watering.
Oh the irrigated fruit aeotiona of the
west there are vast expenses oonneot
ed with the use of water.
It must io moat places be broogbF
to tbe land by expensive systema of
oansls and flumes. Expensive litiga
tion is going on most of the time in
some ol tbe places , over ihe various
and conflicting rights and claims that
are made by tbe prior users, riparian
owners and the later aprropriatoie,
all of wbioh olaims bave to bi adjusted
and settled in tbe courts.
These legal processes last in many
cases for years and the user, of the
water have in tbe end to pay the ex
penses ia one wy or nothefr--'
Tbe regular yearly oost for water
varies from two to five dollars per aore
besides the first coat of a water right
is usually twenty to thirty dyllars per
acre. '
In many oases after paying these
heavy expenses, there is a Bhortrtge of
water during the hottest part of tbe
summer, wben most is required, and
tbe orops often suffer severely.
Iirigated land is muoh balder to
keep clean of weeds and grass, as after
each watering a new crop springs up,
wbiob must be subdued, thus making
constant work, watering and cultivat
ing during tbe entire growing season

No One Buys Drugs
No one sells them for amusement. It's ser
ious, important business on both Bides. A drug
store should have two missions: One, to furnish
drugs that can be relied on, tbe other to furnish
them for what thoy are worth. Drug stores ex
ist foi the public good. Knowledge, experience
and progressive methods should mark their
management, we endeavor to keep step with
the progress of 'the age, to m set every require
ment of the oouamunity, to eonduot a store that
shall stand for ail that a erug store should.
We wish t serve those who want ooeurate
service, Wgh grade drugs, und uniformly
