afford to risk failure of your pumping outfit at the critical time. It will
cost you less in the long run to pay what a good engine is worth.



LAUSON AND

Kerosene




FROST KING

Engines



are particularly well adapted for irrigation pumping because of their absolute re-
liability. "Lauson" Engines are built up to a standard, not down to a price. Have
more drop forged and case hardened parts than any other engine on the market
and will run as true after five years use as when new.

By using a carburetor of special design, ordinary kerosene distillate is used,
securing the full rated H. P. as with gasoline. The Cold Process type of carbu-
retor is used because it is cleaner and more efficient than the oil heating system
used by others.

For continuous, heavy work there is no engine on the market today that equals
the Lauson. We'll be glad to submit proof without obligating you in any way.

Elwood Mead and Frank B. Adams,
irrigation experts , have completed
their survey of the great Ayer hold-
ings in Nevada and Yuba counties,
Cal., and soon will proceed to Bos-
ton to lay their report before C. F.
Ayer, the owner. .It is authoritatively
stated that both Adams and Mead
are enthusiastic over the project and
will strongly recommend that the
project be taken up. It is also stated
that Ayer is waiting only a favor-
able report to order the beginning of
operations, which will involve the ex-
penditure of over a million dollars.

Work on the Lake Cpwhead irri-
gation and power project in California,
will be commenced this month, ac-
cording to an announcement by
Charles A. Gardner and Engineer
Durst, who claim the company has
about $600,000 with which to begin
work on the project that will fur-
nish water to a large area in Surprise
Valley, Modoc county.

Settlers in the Sacramento Valley
Irrigation Company's project in
Glenn and Colusa counties, California,
have organized to protect their in-
terests in a suit brought by the Equi-
table Trust Company of New York,
to foreclose a mortgage on the project
of $7,000,000. The settlers claim that
the company charged them $75 an
acre when they bought their land
for'a water right. Later the Supreme
Court decided the company was a
public service corporation and could
not legally sell a water right, but
must furnish water to all comers.
The settlers now want this money
returned, or its amount stricken from
their contracts. They believe they
must act before the great mortgage is
foreclosed, or they will be too late.

Texas

Asking foreclosure of $350,000 bonds
out of an original issue of $1,050,000,
the St. Louis Union Trust Company
and Thomas N. Dysart, trustee, have
'Sled an amended petition in the
United States court at Houston,
Texas, in the receivership case of the
San Benito Land and Water Com-
pany. If Judge Waller T. Burns or-
ders the foreclosure the plaintiffs will
come into possession of the great ir-
rigating system at San Benito, which
includes 37 miles of canals and 100
miles of laterals. On the application
of these plaintiffs the San Benito
Land and Water Company was
thrown into the hands of receivers
July 31, 1913. At the time of the
receivership the company's affairs in-
volved more than $2,000,000. Failure
of crops was given as the cause of
the receivership. Assets exceeded
liabilities by $1,000,000, it was said.
So extensive are the irrigation facili-
ties of the company at San Benito,
that a number of persons owning ad-
joining property are circulating peti-
tions to form an irrigation district
under the laws of Texas. By fore-
closing on the mortgages and getting
possession tff the irrigation facilities
the plaintiffs expect to sell their
rights to the proposed irrigation dis-
trict and thereby realize on their



bonds. There are 52,000 acres in-
volved in the irrigation enterprise,
besides 16,000 acres of the San Ben-
ito Irrigation Company.

The Grand Falls (Texas) Irriga-
tion district, is preparing to issue-
$150,000 in bonds for development

work.

Nevada

A splendid work has been taken
up by the University of Nevada,



which will prove of invaluable serv-
ice to ranchers and prospective irri-
gators in all parts of the state. A
department has been organized to
develop and test out water wells in
different localities and to assist
ranchers in producing water in the
cheapest and most efficient manner.
The University has just ordered two
new centrifugal turbine pumps from
the Layne & Bowler Corporation.
