Hydraulic Ram a Success.
J. R. Galligan, who resides on Indian
creek two miles south of town, finds a
hydraulic ram works successfully in
raising water from the low land on his
place, so he can use the water in his
house and for irrigating a garden. The
flow of water to operate the ram ha9 a
fall of nine feet. This would enable
the water to be raised 90 feet, but Mr.
Galligan's place requires but a 54-foot
raise. This ram brings up a half-inch
of water, or a gallon every minute, says
T'lere are man other ranches in the
valley where water could profitably be
raised with a ram. Other farmers who
have water on low lauds that is now
going to waste because it cannot be
made use f would do well to inquire '
into the cost and practicability of put
ting in hydraulic rams.
