farmer is compelled to pump it. Ua
the other tumid, the board's testimony
is that the best and cheapest irriga-
tion water obtainable is found at a
depth of two hundred and fifty feet,
more or less, where tli* supply is
abund.-.nt and at which depth wind-
mills and motiors can be used profit-
ably by the former to irrigate amall
tracts. This Ibis been done in the vt-
cinity of Plaiwview, Texas, where their
land has becotme ten times more val-
