SS ftflEU URGED TO ASSIST
MILL FARMER II GETTING START
Director Newel, of Reclama
tion Service, Says Small
Farmers Stable Citizens.
More than 160 El Pasoans and valley
farmers attended the illustrated lec
ture on irrlgatiOB given at the chamber
ot commerce Thursday night by F. H.
Jewell, director of the reclamation ser
iice Mr Kewell urged Kl Paso bankers
and business men to assist the small
urmer financially and thereby take ad
tantage of the work the government is
doing for the improvement of farm
lands He said: v
"The small farmer who takes an in
terest in his farm makes a stable citi
zen An earnest laborer who becomes
a landlord makes a good citizen, takes
an interest in good roads and good
schools. In fact, he takes an interest
in everything connected with a demo
cratic form of government.
The man who holds lands for specu
lation does very little toward tne up
omldlng of the city. He may sell his
land, take the profits and go to New
York or some other point and 'blow it
in." The farmer who makes money out
of his land will reinvest it.
Million a-31nutli For Irrigation.
"The government is Spending about
$1,000,000 a month In irrigation pro
jects. The big "work starts after the
dams are built and the canals con
structed, for then the proper kind of
men must be put on the farms. The
most successful, the most profitable
farms are in those sections where the
government has been able to say how
many acres shall comprise a farm. As
a. railroad man in Chicago said to me
the other day: "Every successful farmer
along our line brings ?50 or $100 to our
road each year. Every unsuccessful
one Is a nuisance.
"Get sufficient cattle on the farm to
maintain its fertility. Sell the alfalfa
through milk, butter, and tied, up in
the skin of hogs. It is up to the busi
ness men of El Paso to help. In the
northwest, the bankers employ men to
go east, buy blooded cattle, bring them
to their section and auction them off
to the farmers. That is a good plan.
Another Is for the farmers themselves
"You need several irrigation mission
aries to so to the farmers in the upper
and lower valleys, teach them how
much water to use. and what crops to
grow at a profit. There are too many
farmers who try to grow too many va
rieties, instead of directing their at
tention to one or two varieties that
will bring them a commercial return.
A picture of tne Gunnison canal,
-which carried the Gunnison river
through the mountains in Colorado, was
shown. This tunnel is sis miles long.
Following this was a picture of the
Boise, Idaho, dam, which is to be even
higher than the famous Shoshone dam,
in Wyoming. A picture of the latter
dam, of concrete, set in a canyon of
solid granite was shown. It is 308 feet
The Carson river dam, in Nevada, was
illustrated, showing the land there rich
in crops where once people died from
thirst walking across the desert, while
15 feet beneath the surface good, sweet
water Is to be found
Speaking of the Roosevelt dam, he
said: "The first thing we did there
was to build a power house, because
fuel was so expensive. At a saving ot
$600,000 under the lowest bid, the gov
ernment made its own cement. Six
years were required to build this dam.
Power is now furnished, besides the
water being used for irrigation."
Most interesting was the picture of
the Laguna dam, across the Colorado
river. This is a floating dam, and a
skimming process is used.the water be
ing sent into California and also Ari
zona. Dikes protect the land at Yuma.
Shonn Elephant Butte Project.
When a picture of the Elephant Butte
project was shown, he said: "The gov-
here. When the flume is in place,
about one-tenth of the foundation will
have been imisnea. mis is naturany
a slow work, but good progress is be
Another view of this project was
shown, in which the camp was visible,
a dinky engine being hoisted on cables
could be seen and two men were seen
riding on a beam strung from a derrick
over 200 feet above ground.
J. D. Tant, of AlamogorOo, N. M , who
recently came out from Tennessee,
asked how far settlers there could af
ford to pump water. Mr. Newell said
that It depended upon tne Hind of en
gine used, the crops grown and several
other things. In answer to a query
from the same man, he said that it
would not pa to feed alfalfa to stock
where only 20 acres are in cultivation
growing about five tons to the acre.
His Stomach Trta7Ies 0-er."
Mr. Dyspeptic, would you not like to
feel that your stomach troubles were
over, that you could eat any kind of
food you desired without injury? That
may seem so unlikely to you that you
do not even hope for an ending of your
trouble, but permit us to assure you
that it is not altogether impossible. If
others can be cured permanently, and
thousands have been, why not you?
John R. Barker, of Battle Creek, Mich.,
is one of them. He says, "I was trou
bled with heartburn, indigestion, and
liter complaint until I used Chamber
lain's Tablets, then my trouble was
over." Sold by all dealers. Adv.

"Truth," one of several hundred

"FOLLOW THE CROWD."
Have you ever heard that? Have you ever said it?
Of course you have. It's a troublesome truth.
Now here is the problem solved. You can give him a
book. Oh, no, don't be afraid. It is one he hasn't
read and it is one he will be sure to like. It is the only
book that tells all about the great governmental
machinery of the United States, and it is. written so
that it is as absorbing as a novel
And cheap? No, indeed. It is cheap in nothing but
the price. It isn't cheap in appearance. It is bound in
heavy cloth, printed in clear type on fine paper-and is
profusely illustrated. If s physical value is equal to
that of any book you usually buy for two dollars. The
distinctive illustrations alone are a delight. They show
how money is made, how the weather man works, how

The name of the book? It is "The American Govern
ment" by Frederic J. ,Haskin. It is the book endorsed
by President Taft and Speaker Clark and all the other
highest officers of the government before it was put in
type; it is the book Woodrow Wilson read on the night
of the election. There is no book like it and it will
please him if he gets it for Christmas.
