We have had the pleasure of ex
amining the principles upon which
the Urie dredger, which has met
with such pronounced success in the
east and south, in excavating irri
gating canals and ditches and in
building levees, is constructed. It
takes up tho dirt, gravel, sand,
cement and loose rock, and if neces
sary deposits them 4,000 feet away.
The buckets can break and lift any
hard clay, marl, shale or rock, not
having a resistence of more than 4,000
pounds. The testimonials given by
U. S. engineers and others who have
used them, speak of thftra as superior
to any dredger or ditcher they ever
W. T. Urie,, the inventor and
owner of them, and W. T. Clayton, a
capitalist, who is interested in placer
mining, both from Kansas City, Mo.,
in their visit to Yuma believe that
they have found a good field for the
machine on our proposed irrigating
canals, and in our placer mines. They
will return and make still further in
vestigations. The machine can be
placed and worked on a scow or barge
in the river or canal, or on wheels or
rollers for dry work on the land.
Strength auul Health.
If you are not feeling strong and healthy,
try Electric Bitters. If "La Grippe" has
left you weak and weary, use Electric
Bitters. This remedy acts directly on
Liver, Stomach and Kidneys, gently aiding
those organs to perform their functions. If
you are afflicted with Sick Headache, you
will find speedy and permanent relief by
taking Electric Bitters. One trial will
convince you that this is the remedy you
need. Large bottles only 50c. at W. T
