Horse Creek Reservoir.
For the infornmtion of the farmers and stockholders of .the Fort Lyon Canal Co. we give below the reults of a recent sur vey of the Horse Creek reservoir. It is proposed to till this reservoir from the llood waters of Horse Creek. The inlet or supply canal will have a carrying ca pacity of 1000 cubic feet per second and will be live miles long. The areas and capacities of the reser voir are us follows: Area at high water mark 2000 acres Area at low water 425 acres Depth of water between low and high water marks 14 ft Available capacity reservoir lllOOacroft Unavailable capacity 4700ucreft Undeveloped capacity of res ervoir, which can bo ob tained by raising the em bankment at outlet 8 ft. .20,000 acre ft If the reservoir is filled during the months of May, .1 une and duly and the water is drawn off during the months of September und October wo can expect a loss of 3200 acre feet. This will leave a supply of 8200 acre feet, which will give a flow of 200 feet per second for 20’ days, or a How of 100 feet for 41 days. The drainage area of Horse creek which will bo above the headgate of the inlet canal is HUN) square miles. It will only take six days’ run of the supply canal at full capacity of 1000 feet per second to till the reservoir. The cost per acre foot of capacity will be about 8-1.10. Below wo give ox tracts from a govern ment report on irrigation near Greeley, Colorado, which shows what others have expended per acre foot for reservoirs. Larimer and Weld Reservoir. Cost of original construction 804.782 Capacity in acre feet 7,700 Cost per acre foot $8.41 This reservoir was enlarged in 1805. Total cost with enlargement 800,(XX) Capacity in acre feet 11,550 Cost per acre foot 87.70 Windsor Reservoir. Total cost 875,000 Total capacity in acre feet 22,057 Cost per acre foot 811.27 The natural condition were very favor able for a large capacity with low cost of construction. Cache La Poudre Reservoir. Total cost 8125,000 Capacity in acre feet 5,054 Cost per acre f<x>t 822.17 David Boyd in his report to the U. S. Geological Survey on “Irrigation near Greeley, Colo.,” says “That in 1894 this reservoir netted to the farmers 8105,083 ~on crop saved, or one third more than the cost of the reservoir. This was an excep tional year as regards crop and prices, however. In an average year it would net 802,500 or one-half the cost of the reservoir.” Additional Local News. for bargains in farm lands go to C 15. I'houian. Always read the healer’s space.

Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using anything else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they seldom heard of Appen dicitis, Nervous Prostration or Heart fail ure, etc. They used August Flower to clean out the system and stop fermenta tion of undigested food, regulate the ac tion of the liver, stimulate the nervous and organic action of the system, and that is all they took when feeling dull and bad with headaches and other aches. You only need a few doses of Green’s Au gust Flower, in liquid form, to make you satisfied there is nothing eerious the mat ter with you. For sale by I. 11. Myers. Advertised Letter List.
