sume of Irrigation to the Morning
"I know what! Irrigation will do in

a no-acre field in whent for a number
of years. It raised 30 bushels to tho
acre and upwards. Last year I
thought the ground was getting thin,

That was better than the wheat, I
shall keep that field In grass a year or

"Yes, I bellevo In Irlgatlon and I
am going to the Portland convention
