sible on account of cent being pro
hibitive, can be reclaimed and made
extremely productive and valuable.
It is the irrigationlHt onder thin
method of whom we have the niost
to fear. He ia absolute matter of the
situation. He owns his plant, can
operate tt when he sees fit and is not
subject to even caution or soKgestiou
from any company from whom water
is purchased. " """"
The wind being a fickle jade, we
have long ago eliminated it as, a j
factor in producing power for pomp- j
ing purpose!), so the expense involved 1
in wood, coal, gasoline, oil or other I
fuel may check him to a great extent
in operating his plant, but we have
in our midst, and easy of access, a
new factor to reckon with, to-wit:
Electricity, which can be applied
at our wills, in addition to irrigating
onr lands, to ministering to our com
fort and happiness, at a oost, that
according to facts and figures are
minimum. What does the possessor of
a pump purpose doing? Start his ma
chine in operation let it run night
and day, flooding hi land until ruin
ed? Or will he exercise judgment
deliver hi water ioto a reservoir,
tank, box, flume or other raceptaole
aodal'o it to remain there for use
when needed, thereby properly ex
emplifying the correct definition of
irrigation, namely Insure having
water when needed. Experience has
proven that the only mistake the ir
rigator can make under this system
is that of the size of the plant or
pomp required to irrigate a tract
comprising more than 10 oi 15 acres
and that he can very easily over
come by applying for costs and size of
plant required for any given number
of acre from any office or officer of
an electric company operating in or
near his section. By pursnlng some
such policy be is not required to in
vest in a large or expensive plant
capable of discharging enough water
to flood all his land at one time and
can accomplish the proper irrigation
of Jbis land at minimum oost. he
further gets the benefit of every gal
lon of water his pomp delivers, a no
seepage takes place between pump and
where he wants to nse water. He in
sures himself against ruining his crops,
against excessive flooding and he ir
rigates his land a-i it should be irri
gated, thereby insuring, if properly
cultivated, the raising of a better
crop, both a to qoalitr and quantity,
than tjiough he pursued the slip shod
methods of using water simply be
cause he bad it to use.
As to electricity in tins valley of
ours being the most economical and
the must practicable owiug to a large
ana well managed oompanv now in
our midst extending throughout the
lougth of our valley and reaching out
in different directions as fast as pos

season of four mouths. I'lO. Th
pump working front suurite to innset
will throw approximately 18,000 gal
lons of water to a height of 40 feet,
or more to a leas height. Now. ao
cording to all known facts aod the
jtestimouy of experts, an acre of

The changeable weather of Spring is

for the cure of catarrh.
Unlike the ordinary remedies that
have been used in catarrhal troubles,
there isno stomach dosing with Hyo
