INVENTION OF PORTLAND MAN.
Creating Great Interest Aniens Irri-
gationists and Hydraulic Miners.
What promises to be a priceless boon
to' the hundreds interested in irrigating
and hydraulic mining projects is an
invention which has recently betn
brought to a state of commercial per
fection by W. K. Phillips, a practical
hydraulic engineer ef Portland. It is
a hydraulic rami that will utilise any
fall ef water from three feet up for the
purpose ef raising a portion of it to
any desired level. It is a perfect sub
stitute for the water-wheel and pump
combined, with greater efficiency. It
requires no attention and involves no
cost of operation.
. , For hydraulic miners it will convert
the volume of water into pressure. It
enables them to dispense with long
and costly pipe lines. It will make
available gravel beds heretofore un
touched by the hydraulic giant. It is
of unquestioned superiority in its ap
plication to hydraulic gravel and
water elevators. It is thought it will
fill the demand of the hydraulic miner
for some suitable means of exploiting
gravel beds inaccessible to the high
beads of water demanded by the hy
draulie giant. Recent reports show
vast areas of such unexplored gravel
beds to exist in the Pacific Northwest.
.' In an interview with - Mr. Phillips.
from whom the above information was
btained, we were told that the license
to manufacture the ram was sold to the

the subject at this time are strangely
dense. The public is fed constantly
with lovely articles about the grand
national irrigation works under way,
while the fact is that all the great
values mentioned concerning reclama
tion of the arid region are the result of
private initiative and enterprise and
Few people understand that the na
tional irrigation fund Is nothing but a
bulk of capital which may be advanced
to build reservoirs and ditches, upon a
guarantee that the owners of the lands
to be irrigated will repay the cost to
the fund. The national fund is not to
be depleted, but must be replenished
by the payment back of the cost of the
work, as assessed by the government
engineers; and if signatures to such
pledges can't be secured, - the works
proposed will not be built
Knowing that all government work
costs vastly more than if done by pri
vate capital, and the United States

long, 100 feet wide, and 35 feet to the

fertile 156,000 acres of fruit ranches.
The excavator travels on its own
railway tracks on each side - of the
canal, and as the work proceeds the
track is taken up and relald ahead
of the machine. t
The steel buckets, which have sharp.
cutting edges, move constantly by
means of endless chains, and empty
their load of earth first on one side,
then on the other. Wide endless belts

headway that I was forced to resign my

After spending all the means I had I went
to Memphis. In less than three weeks I
was in a hospital, and after nine weeks of
suffering I was discharged as cured. In
less than a month every bone in my body
seemed to be affected and felt as if they
would break at the least exertion. Again
I was compelled to resign, and I returned
to' the hospital for a seven weeks stay.

drugs to get me one dozen bottles of 8. S.
