you can catch the drainage from 1000 acres, in a series
of small storage reservoir sufficient to irrigate as much
as 81 acres of the entry and at least 6 acres on any 40
of the 160. For this 160 you pay the Government 25
an acreot the time of filing and ll.OO an acre when
proof is made.
Second, file on 320 as a homestead—no charge for the land but en
tryman must reside upon tli homestead seven months each year for
three years and raise a crop on 20 acres the second year and have 40
acres In crop the third year.
Third, buy 160 acres from the Government at $1.25 per acre. This
