One. feature of tho Maxwell tract,
which Is absent In most Irrigated dis
tricts, Is the presence of an excellent
quality of water, about 11 feet under
neath the surface, all over the tract.
The basin In which Maxwell is locat
ed has evidently been a channel of
tho Umatilla at one time, and the
soil Is exceptionally rich.
In tho basin to the eastward of the
Imttes, near the railroad track at
Maxwell station, are found the most
pronounced Indications of artesian
water In tho Inland Empire. The
