I. Hilt large areas, w hich are in- I eluded in the arni limits, consist of i mountainous country, oonaeqaantly j unsuitable bv nature tor agriculture. Notwithstanding this, it has been estimated that, w hen all available sources of « titer supply for irrigation are utilized, there will only In? water enc ugh to irrigate alout one-fourth of the land needing irrigation. Tins estimate included only the surface waters, how ever. from melting silos tams. and j large uuniber of other at reams, aa the surface waters emanating from that source, becaa   much go**! land. winch must have irrigation, Ii*-* nearer to that source of supply. There is no appreciable surplus of local storm waters falling u|sm these lower lands because. OO thew plains, five-sixths of all the unniial precipitation falls tx>-t sr eon April I and September I, anti is absorbed by the aoli. This, however, gives so nearly a sufficient rainfall, through the growing ^.*asou, that but lit tit* additional moisture in the way of irrigation is needed; lienee the water supplied for irrigation will terre a relatively large area of land.

This immense underground water supply, while probably derived, in tho mum, from the percolation of the Ar kansas Hirer aud its tributaries, is probably largely supplemented by underground currents from distant sources north sn.l west.
