A great many people, fearful of the

TRUE ECONOMY IN IRRIGATION
Much Depends on Use of Water In
Way That It Shall Produce
Profit and Not Wasted.
A flow of wator of ono cubic foot
per second would cover 320 acres
twenty-sevon Inches deep In a, year If
and It's a big If nono of it escaped
downward or upward. Even allowing
for such escapes, twenty-sevon inchos
would probably provo enough if ono
could irrigate throughout the year or
storo water without loss. In California
they do mako n cubic foot per second
servo 120 to 200 acres, that is, nfter
a fashion, and after a great deal of
oxpenso In distribution. In Utah sev
enty acres Is covered, and In Colo
ra'do, on short-run streams, 1.44 cubic
feet Is used on eighty acres and reser
voir water used in addition. Theo
rists would havo ono believe that water
that oscapes by percolation Is waBted,
whereas It returns to the water chan
nels and can bo used so long as it
flows in countries under irrigation.
Theoretically, water should only be
run far enough to give Just tho right
amount of water at overy point of Its
flow through tho field, and tho nearer
wo can approximate this, the better,
But wo cannot cut our fields to pieces
with cross laterals which Interfere
with cultivation, grow weeds and I
waste ground. So we run water far
ther than tho exact optimum for econ
omy of water, and wo do advisedly be
cause economical application of water
Is only ono point In farming; tho other
operations must also bo economically
Thero 1b not any exact rulo that will
glvo us tho exact sonkage of water we
require for plants Independent of tho
fact that soils vary, for It is evident
that in order to reach the end of a
row or land, whntever Its length, and
soak It sufficiently, water must pac3
on the upper nnd Intermediate parts
of tho surface longer than Is absolute
ly necessary. r
This excessive yet ec6nom!cal appli
cation of water passes into the sub
soil and thence to tho steam or river
flow, and when your theoretical irri
gationista discovers It and somo
seeped lands he Immediately cries out
in horror that farmers are wasting
water. Where thero are gravelly sub
soils such return flow will occur In,
somewhat greater quantity than with
a strong, retentive subsoil.
It is a mistake to regard tho theo
retical Irrlgationalst as a harmless, if
mistaken, individual, for ho Is pernici
ously active around legislatures and
congress, and his babble has led to
countless enterprises being foisted on
the public, with a duty imposed on
wator far in excess of what It will
Already it is common to say that
water should bo taken away from old
settlers and "redistributed, and it is
Impossible to say how Boon somo leg
islature maynot further tangle up our
water distribution systems.
Tho true economy of wator depends
on its use in a way that shall protfuco
a profit, and it has never been allowed
to go to waste for any length of time
In live farming communities, but has
been applied to new lands so Boon aB
It was developed. Without live farm
ers the water is useless; in fact, all
the real value over developed from
water has been by farmers, not by en
gineers, promoters or theorists who
explored it, but by the man who raised
tho crop, whose vital interest is far
greater in water than anyone else's

the arid regions is a great problem.

It is oly by irrigation that tho best
