Judging from looks, rooah, I Uke It:

And hunted tue argcmucruui

hnwrtanco in tie discussion of questions
such as this case presents. It ncems that
Pus tie's ranches above all others on tho ditch
or drain which is tho common medium of
uppiy, and about three-quarters' or a mile
fmin the mass or tho water from which all
depend. Tbo relative positions of tho ranch

or reduce tbo supply of other, excepting
such as are below him on tho same ditcu or

would seem to bo a presumption or tact innt
t, .Lif-ndaiit is hiL'ber-UD the
