Are You Looking for Money ?
In Competition With the Ditch, Canal. Steam or Gas
. Do you realizei the fact that water will Double Your Crops ?
Yes, we will put it stron g er-Y ou ought to, quadruple your
crops with water.
Yes, and it can be d on e!

You can get along without ,.Us, but you can get M ore M oney
W ith U s .
How can this be done ?
H ere’s the point— fill in the figures yourself.
We come to you with a proposition to furnish you ample water
for irrigation, where you want it and WHEN you want it ; cheaper
and more convenient than a ditch or steam or gasoline engine.
WE DO IT WITH THE ELECTRIC PUMP.
oline Driven Pump
is driving them:out o f the field in Southern California and elsewhere.
It has made the desert hlossom; made worthless land valuable;
quadrupled the valua.of lands and products and in some cases the
increase in value has.been Ten-Fold and a Hundred-Fold.
Can sufficient water be obtained for irrigation from wells ?
Some people say no.
They used to say No in the Desert o f Southern California; but
they do so no longer; they are getting the water and plenty o f it
there and also in the Rogue River Valley.
In California they have to go from 50 to several hundred feet
in depth and pay $54 per season per horse power.
In the Rogue River Valley in the most o f cases you get ample
water from 16 to 50 feet depth and you only pay $30 per Horse
Power for the irrigating season.

W hat is the Advantage of Irrigating
W ith Electric Pumps?
Now , Where is the hitch /
OW get together with your
neighbors and form a par
t y line and thus divide up the
expense Am ong yourselves for
Electric Power, Electric Light
Now here is where we SHINE.
FIR ST—The price is cheaper; the average cost per acre for the season with an Electric Pump
is $1.25 per acre for water.
SECOND—You pay N o B onus .
TH IR D —You do not have to mortgage your land forever.

have to wait your turn and quarrel with your neighbors.
SIXTH —You do not have to enter into any contract for any stated period; if "pump irrigation
does not suit you, you can quit; the only guarantee that you give is that you will pay your propor
tion o f the cost o f the line and this money you get back in power or light; in other words you
simply guarantee your GOOD faith .
SEVENTH —You can use Electric Power to Saw Wood, Grind Feed, Churn Butter,. Separate
Cream, do the Washing and Ironing, Cooking and Heating; keep yourself cool in summer with
Electric Fans; it drives away the flies, purifies the air, runs the Sewing Machine and numerous
other uses o f which not the least is to have your wife and family rise up and bless you for the com

chitis, Coughs, Colds, Consumption, Croup, Whooping Cough and pain in any part o f the body.
N IN TH —You can use Electric Light; as the Sun (which is concentrated Electricity) dispels
the fog, dampness, disease, and Gives Life Itself to all the Human Race and the Animal and Vege

GOLD HILL, WOODVILLE,
My motor ran the season through with only one oiling, but I oiled the pump every
morning when I started the motor, which is ali there is to look after.
I t gave the least trouble of any machinery I ever used.
Now, as to what I accomplished with water— I m o r e t h a n t r e b l e d t h e y i e l d o r c o r n
CENTRAL POINT, ORE., March 20, 1906.
CONDOR W ATER & POWER CO . TOLO. OREGON.
G E N T L E M E N :— I thought It m ight be of some interest to you to give some hind of
a statem ent as to what I thought of your Centrifugal Pump, operated by Electric Motor,
purchased from you last May.
How it works aod how i„ suits me :
The Electric Motor I use i-* a five-borse-pewer belted direct to a three-tnch Centrifugal
T h is pump-will give from COO to 500 gallons per minute, depending on the lift.
A 3-horse-power motor, however, would run this pump and give the same amount of water.
On one part of my place I had to force water 480 feet on a grade of 12 to 13 feet; 20 feet
from well, through a 4-ineh p.pe. I got from 350 to-400 gallons per minute.
T h is elevation I speak O j ie above the pump
I could pump 500 gallocaper minute from my well, day and night all season up to Nov. 1.
T h is was the last pumping I did in order to wet the ground so I could dig my trees.
My well Is 16 feet deep, air feet wide and 12 feet long, with no tunnels.
Z estim ate th a t I can Irrigate 120 acres of ground with my pump.
to the-worklug of the electric pump and motor, neither have given me any
I could start the motor running on Monday morning and it would be running Saturday
night, if some one would not call around aod stop it.

AND I DOUBLED THE APPLE CROP.
1 had no alfalfa to water and was not prepared to get water to our garden, but I ralsod
a fine crop of beets on ground that, without watnr, would not have grown anything.
As to Sweet Corn, ask J. W . M erritt.
I t was THE LARGEST CORN I EVER HAW, AND I HAVE RAISED CORN IN IOWA AND ON THE
MISSOURI RIVER BOTTOM.
I am going to grow some more this year, Cali and see It.
I used water on my seedlings for nursery stock and I am well pleased with the results,
I grew 150,000 seedling); that, without water, I could not have grown, and as a result
have 125,000 pears budded and grafted and 25,000 apples to say nothing of the benefit in
The Electric Pump is the thiog.
Y e a cao have the water where you want It and when you want It, which Is the essen
My children could start and stop the motor and oil the pumo.
I consider that there is no more danger in a motor than machinery with cog wheels,
aod not as much for children.
T o close, will say that I am well pleased with the motor and pump, and well pleased
with the way you people have treated me.
Hoping you success, I am very truly yours,
J. S. BARNETT.
