his side was simply absurd. It is small
wonder that ho was greeted with shouts
of laughter, particularly from tbo la

reached the line, "Oh, that this too, too
nolid flesh would molt," tbo shouts of
laughter were simply deafening and

The laws, of tho Western States and
Territories ovcrwhero recognize and
protect tho right of tho first or "prior
appropriator ' of water. If the first set
' tier on tho banks of a stream draws oil
1 in his ditch, one-half or tho wholo of tho
customary flow to irrigato his farm, bo
has the right to tako this one-half or tho
wholo flow forever, to'tlio entire exclusion
of any subsequent settler. But tho samo
rule applies to rivers of largo size. As
the quick-witted Westerner stands by
tho sido of ono of tho great rivers and
looks over thousands of acres of deset
land along its banks ho sees a fortuno
in tho situation. Only got capital
enough together, organizo a great com
pany, dig an immenso canal which will
"appropriate"' all tho water in tho
river, and you command tbo wholo val
ley. It is the position of tbo Western
railroads repeated. Insteadof waiting
for settlers to como and dig Httlo
ditches as they need them, an immenso
capital digs one hugo canal watoring
thousands of farns, and then draws set
tlers by advertisement and boom. So
all over tho West, throughout Colorado,
in Central and Southern California, in
Montana and Idaho, on tho Salt and
Gila rivers, in Southern Arizona, there
are great companies, with capitals run
ning into tho millions, putting this idea
into fleet. Tho canals they dig aro
twenty, thirty or oven fifty miles long.
Tho largest aro a hundred feet wide
and ton feet deep, vory rivers in them
selves. They follow tho contour of tho
country, running back further and fur-
ther from tho river as tho latter falls
j away. Tho main canals give oil later
i al branches at frequent intervals, and
by an ingenious system of gates, cross
i ings and ditches sends water to ovory
J foot of arable ground botween it and
j tho river. Tho land belongs to tbo
Government, and is taken up by individ
ual settlers at merely nominal prices
' under tho "Desert Land act." But tho
j water holongs to tho Canal Company,
and it is this water that tho sottler
really pays for. Walter Gilletto Bates,

Driving a horso is not such an oxpon
! slvo luxury as one would supposo. Of
i course it costs lots of money to bo ablo
to drive a crack. A first-class trotter
costs as much as ono wants to pay. A.
I good 2:20 horse can bo bad for about
i 55,000. and a thousand moro can bo add
ed to that amount for ovory half second
be can go faster than 2:20 down to 2:12.
Those that can trot faster than that aro
phenomenal, and bring fabulous prices.
Axtell's price was 8100,000; Sunol's 50,
000, and Maud S.'s 40,000. A good
three-mlniito horse that can do fair work
, on the road can ho bought for S200. Of
course he won't beat every thing ho
1 moots, but he will make a good showing.
