Dttg day loat week the Denver pulled the water supply so hard here that together with the heavy oil mill and I I local consumption It came near ex- 1 houstlng th" supply. As n result Colonel Browder got busy and bought six sections more of land adjoining the one on which he haa developed I hla water supply. On this land la a; perfect tahrynth of springs Including th famous "Teacup" spring, well known to all old cowboys, lie will j now develop,- water enough lo run the entire Denver system. A aeries of large tanks arc to be put In here and Instead of the two-Inch pipe for Inlet they will haw n six-inch pipe. This will allow Ih" railroad to load aa many full trulna of water per day her" na thev nn get over Ih" road. The road Is now hauling from every lank li'twien (ioodnlghl and I'hll-dresa and then not getting enough No doubt al months of water hauling Is before them and to loadalto get her at Memphis will be a great sav lug.
