SOME IRRIGATIOX TALK.
It will not do to attempt to throw
cold water on the enthusiasm that
has grown apace in favor of the irri
gation of western soils. The bet
ter way is to catch the spirit of the
times and try to follow it out to
some natural and legitimate con
clusion. The eyes of the whole con
tinent are at a time like this turned
upon the arid west for some remedy
against future afflictions of a type
similar to those we are now labor
ing under. Enough is known of the
history of irrigation, and of the
various elements requisite to its
fullest measure of success, to in
spire hope and courage in the
breasts of all home loving people.
It is the part of wisdom in a people
situated as are the people of all
Nebraska to desire to know to what
extent irrigation can be made a
thing practicable among them. It
is not simply the people who are
owners of the lands most in need of
irrigation that are interested in the
matter; every man whose business
operations fall within the bounds
of the state is more or less directly
interested in the matter of having
the waters of the state appropri
ated in a manner that shall secure
the greatest benefit to all the peo
ple. The irrigation problem is at best
a complex thing. But the great
and over-shadowing feature of it all
is the question of water supply.
Give us water without limit and
the desert can speedily be made to
blossom as the rose. Nobody pre
tends that all of the arid portions
of Nebraska can be brought under
the ditch, and it is for this very
reason that the problem assumes
the overwhelming importance that
it does. There must be brought
into the play the best of skill and
economy in the distribution of these
waters. Large sections of the state
now helpless without the friendly
aid of waters that pass them by,
can and will be made regularly pro
ductive of all kinds of farm crops
with yields unknown to lands that
depended upon the uncertainty, in
sufficiency or irregularity of rain
fall for the making o such crops.
With the building of ditches and
the construction of reservoirs in the
right places and under certain re
strictions there can be no failing of
the water supplies. Nebraska is
blessed with rivers that carry im
mense volumes of water from the
mountains in the course of the year
and if all this vast volume of water
be conserved through the interven
tion of the hand of man, and dis
tributed and appropriated in like
manner through man's devices, it is
bound to be in line with the evolu
tion of the agriculture of the state
as preordained by Him who doeth
all things well. Nebraska Farmer.
