In Its explorations of the subterranean water store of the Arkansas valley. ' the Atchison, Topeka Santa Fa Rail way company has found much evi dence of Its widespread abundance. The underflow Is limited by the "di vides" north and south, which confine the valley, and is available for Irriga tion, or domestic use wherever a rancher drives a well and puts up a windmill The artesian flow, which Is much deeper, is not thus confined. It Ukewlse is tapped wherever a drill hole Is put down, although It does not always oome to the surfaoe of Its', ows force, and Is found throughout the southwest regardless of valley con fines. Ths deeper store is found la the Dakota sandstone, and the under flow is above In the sands of the va Ths deeper flow possesses artesian force In spots, and sometimes Is pumped, but It Is never falling In quantity, and It only Is a question of time, capital and population when drills will penetrate if in a thousand places. At Rlobfleld, In Morton coun ty, (2 miles south of Coolidge, where there are two artesian wells, which flow 40 gallons or more a minute each, artesian water was struck at a depth of 600 feet In 1887. These wells, cased with four-inch pipe, forced water 18 feet above the surface, and until 1899 flowed copiously, when they collapsed and, the population having left the country, were abandoned. . -At Johnson, In Stanton county, mid way between Coolidge and Richfield, the same water la found at a depth of 600 feet This, however, does not flow, but is pumped freely and Is the best water In that section. The un derflow lies in the sands above It and Is tapped at about 100 feet below the grass roots, but It ll not so wholesome for stock or household. However, it answers the purpose of Irrigation, and, being nearer the surface, is more gen erally used. In Meade county, 126 miles or more east of Richfield, the Santa Fe hss found flowing wells at a depth of about 160 feet It Is the same water that Is found In Morton county, the differ ence of depth being accounted for by the lower altitude. These wells are not on the line of the Santa Fe, but In Its explorations, as at Johnson and at Richfield, the company's prospect ors are not confined wholly to the Santa Fe lines, but look for water in all the country tributary. Abundant water Is found a few miles east in Clark county and further ear along the Englewood branch of the Santa Fe, which lately has received much sew immigration from Illinois, Iowa and other states of the middle west, but it Is not artesian. The only flowing wells so far found la ths Englewood section are In Meade sounty, but It Is the same deposit ivery where along that line. J. W. Roblson, of the state board of rail road commissioners, who mads a wagon trip through that section re cently, says the Santa Fe has tapped this water frequently, proving Its gen eral and widespread abundance. He ays an added evidence of this abun- lance Is the luxuriant growth ot al falfa, which he declares Is the finest he has ever seen. But It Is the underflow that ths lanta Fe prospectors more often tap and from which agriculture derives the best results at pretent Later more general developments of the artesian water will Irrigate the apland and add to the supply la the flats along the Arkansas river, ut the underflow Is what the ranch ers look to for the present It Is the underflow that has made alfalfa, kafflr and sorghum pos ilble In the valley, and lately Its valae has been made many-fold greater by the sugar beet experiments of the Santa Fe. For It waa these experi ments that led to the mammoth beet ugar factory now la course of cob- t ruction at Garden City. . This plant boilt of Iron snd brick, will cost I7M, MO before It turns a wheel and tt win he meilv for operation October id. The Santa Fe has traced this under flow all the way from the headwaters of the Arkansas to the Kansas stats tine, where the stream passes Into Oklahoma, and that It is widespread. from one "divide" to the other. Is proved by many evidence. For In stance, wells some miles from the river rise when the river rises and fall wbea tt falls. Twenty mllee north of Garden City Is one of these wells, and 126 mllee east, II miles south of Kins ley, Is another. These are sot Isolated Instances, but exam plea of many. Tbeee wells, shallow la the flats, are deeper la tae amy eoaatry. Some times they are 160 feet deep, bat sack Instances are rare. avis' Shoe Store, Brov;n Telephone Building, Third and Cedar Sis., Abilene. OUR SPECIALTY: ' Large assortment.

The waters of the Arkansas flow la the sand beneath the surface, filtering far aad wide to the limits of the val ley. The Nlnnescah rises and Bows within the Taller, and, although it has other sources. Its mala supply comas from ths Arkansas. For whenever the Arkansas carries a freshet, the Nlnnescah, SO miles south, rises a few hours later, the water coming up from the depths purs and clear as a flow from springe. The Influence of tbeee freshets Is felt even to the souroe of the smaller stream la Pratt oounty, whence It flows through Kingman, Sedgwick and Sumner, disgorging near Oxford Into the parent stream.
