Just now it is only safe and comfortable to speak of it in an academic way. There are too many boomers hi the irrigation spirit to make it wise to throw cold water on their doctrines. here is a fact which has been observed for centuries. Genuinely arid countries are always ruinad sooner or later by irrigation. Permanently success- ful irrigation is possible only in what we call humid or semi- humid regions, where the drain- age is natural from tha clouds to the sea. "In the arid country the soil is practically never wet down more .than four or five feet. In the millions of acres which is now proposed to reclaim there has never been at work the pro- cess of percolation down through the" underlying rock ond soil which would drain from the land obnoxious constituent elements. With soil, as with animal life, there must be a process like per- spiration which shall carry off waste salts. Otherwise they ac- cumulate and in excess are harmful. In all soils there are chemicals, some of which are plant foods and some plant poi- sons. With natural drainage conditions any excess of injuri- ous t-.1 would be carried off. But without it they accumulate. 'Now, when the water, either tfareh IT Wan-til No. do do do do to- T' do do do do do do do do do do do do do July do do do do April do June Sept. at H. M W.
