reauest that such restriction be with
drawn as to nonlrrlgated lands under
existing Irrigation systems. The need "of
storage water for these lands Is im
perative during a portion of each seaaon,
and their owners. In many Instances tM
settlers, have waited years for water,
undergoing every hardhlp, and have only
refrained from rtreparfng their land for

without storage water their labor'woald
be In vain, and bring only loss. All are
willing and ailoua to put their land

Get rid of dust
DUST is garbage," says a distinguished 'surgeon.
"No community can claim to be quite civilized
if it continues to 6pend money on brooms and dusters
to stir up dust which is dangerous filth to be breathed
by tile occupants of its homes and public buildings."
The Arco Wand Vacuum Cleaner is a stationary,
permanent machine to be set in basement, with
air-suction pipes (within partitions or otherwise) run
ning to all floors. All the housekeeper or janitor has to
do is to slip the end of a light rubber hose into a conve-
nient,' inconspicuous suction-pipe opening in the base
board of any room, then turn an electric button to start
thfe machine in cellar, and with the light, hollow Arco Wand at other end of hose she gently passes the grace
ful, magical Wand over carpets, rugs, hardwood floors, walls, ceilings, portieres, picture frames, mouldings, etc
All the dirt, lint, threads, cobwebs, moths, insect eggs, etc, are instantly and com
pletely drawn by powerful air current through the tube-like, dirt-devouring Arco Wand
into the iron piping and down into the big, sealed dust-bucket in cellar. You will
never have to deal with that particular dust again. Even the air, after the dust is
removed, is exhausted out-of-doors, and the rooms are thus sanitarily ventilated.
